GibsonChamber of Commerce reforming  Forty-five local business people  met at the Gibsons Legion Hall  last Wednesday to resurrect the  Chamber of Commerce which has  been dormant since May 31st,  .1973.'  -'  Mr. Petty, the manager for  the Chamber of Commerce for  B. C. was the guest speaker  and outlined the aims and reasons  for reforming. He explained to  an interested audience how, as  a group it would gain them credibility in the community; and a  voice in the development of the  area. ' 'The big guns from  Vancouver would not be able to  run over you if you were a consolidated body," he said.  Mayor Labonte was happy-to  see this group reorganize and  said it would be a welcome voice  at council meetings.  The meeting was thrown open'  to discussion and some of the  aims discussed were: the ferries,  planned growth, the marina and  co-operation with other groups,  tee was put to the floor and it  was decided that a twelve-member executive would be most  feasible.  John Smith, Bruce Gamble,  Gerry Kirsch, Duncan Campbell,  and Bob Reid will be accepting  nominations for this executive,  anyone wishing to be on the board,  or knowing someone qualified,  can contact any of the above.  The next meeting will be in the  Legion Hall April 6th at 1:30  p.m., all interested business  people are invited to attend.  jRobert Corlett of Gibsons was  1 among the group of four representing west coast fishing in-  i&tierests who flew to Ottawa on  ^Monday,  March  28th,  to  meet  f|with   parliamentary  representa-  fjtiVes on the subject of the pro-  Tposed change in the licensing of  ;;salmon trollers on the west coast.  The group will represent the  United   Fishermen   and   Allied  -Workers Union  as well as the  . ^'Concerned Fishermen of the Sunshine Coast. While in Ottawa the  [group will meet with Romeo Le-. letter responses thanking them  blanc, Minister of Fisheries, as for their interest. "It seems  ."well as with the parliamentary   strange," said Corlett, "that on  , 'Standing  Committee  on   Fishe-   the one hand they claim they want  'Vies, the party caucuses of all   our input and yet they take so  }pt the parliamentary parties and   long to  answer  on  a  program  \ as   many   of  the   members   of  which they wish to implement so  ^parliament from B.

Bill Warner, a lawyer hired by  residents of the area presented  a brief urging that the Regional  Board not enter into a land-use  contract with the proponents of  the development scheme.  Warner's brief touched on the  fact that the waters of Secret  Cove were already polluted and  questioned whether adequate  fire protection could be provided  and raised the question of public  access to the beach. Warner  also pointed out that there had  been no performance bond posted  given completion ofthe project.  Also; present at the meeting  in addition to the local residents  and their representative were  Capt. Ellis of the Navigable  Water branch of the Transport  Canada department and Larry  Sorkin of the Provincial Lands  branch.  Representing the developers  were Doug Roy, the engineer of  the project, Harold Freeman, one  of the principals, and John Buck-  ridge who presently operates the  Secret Cove Marina.  Other residents of the area  spoke against the development.  Included in their expressed  concerns was the fragility of the  cove. One resident said that the  oyster harvest in the area had had  to be abandoned and that children  in the area were forbidden to  swim in the waters by their  parents. "The cove has become  a summer cesspool," he said. ,  Subsequent to the meeting  regional board director Peter  Hoemberg reported that provincial approval had now been received for a Secret Cove Sewage  Disposal system of secondary or  aerobic treatment so that the way  was clear financially for such a  system if the project went ahead.  He said that the developers had  brought the number of planned  units down below thirty as they  had previously been requested  by the regional board. Present  flans call for about twenty-nine  houses, each approximately  1,400 square feet.  A meeting of the Public Utili-  ��-ties -���onums5ion~of* the-* regional  board held on Thursday, March  24th, heard Mark Dayton of  Dayton and Knight Consulting  Firm outline the alternatives for  proposed improvements to the  water service in the Field Road  area of Wilson Creek and the  North Road area near Gibsons.  In the case of the Field Road  improvements the alternative  which seemed the most attractive  was the connection of a large  water pipe direct to the intake  with the possibility of extension  down Flume Road to relieve a  present bottleneck in the water  system in that area. This is an  expensive alternative but seems  to offer the best long-term prospects for the regional water system in that area.  In the case of the water service  to the North Road area, Dayton  advised board members that the  most attractive procedure would  be a joint venture with the village  of Gibsons. He pointed out that,  failing this co-operation there  would be a costly duplication of  services. If the co-operation were  not forthcoming at this time it  would not be economic to establish co-operation at a later date.  Co-operation on the matter  would be to the advantage of  both Gibsons and Granthams to  which the line could be eventually  extended. Regional board members will attempt to arrange a  meeting with the Gibsons council  to discuss the proposal.  ? ;^7   ���       ' '    '    7.7   "     ���.    / 7   7    '  '   '      : "        '  |7gsThe local committee formed by the B. C. Ferry Corporation      The   main   reason   given   by  an unscheduled meeting last Tuesday, March 22nd, in   Bouchard for secrecy was that  inaccurate press coverage of the.  last meeting put the ferries in  a bad light and, he felt,   "the  usefulness of the committee was  crumbling".  ��� In answer to this Frank West  told the members that he had reread all the coverage given by  f'The idea of in camera meetings was rejected unanimously by  the local press and could find  nothing inaccurate anywhere.,  The sin committed he, said,  was that "It is audacious for  the residents of the Sunshine  Coast, to criticize the :high and  mighty B. C. Ferry Corporation,  but then we are a daring lot. So  far," he said, "I can't see them  involving us in future planning,  and if this is the case, it was  crumbling from the beginning.''  While ho one felt that in  camera meetings were possibile  it was felt that in some matters  the press should be informed  but asked to use discretion.  An example of this would be, if  a proposal for future rescheduling  was brought up and was still  only an idea for discussion it  would cause unnecessary friction  if it was made public before  the unions and other concerned  bodies had discussed it in detail.  It was decided that two letters  should be written,.one informing  Bouchard of their decision not  to have/private meetings and  the second asking that this be  brought up for discussion ait the  next meeting. Individual letters,  it was felt, should be written  on the same subject.  The next meeting was scheduled for April 5th in Powell River,  some of the members felt that  this would be putting them on  too tight a time table as they had  other duties, and asked that Joe  Dallas be contacted  and  other  arrangements be made., This has  since been done and it will now  be held at the restaurant at-Earls  Cove at 1:30 p.m. on the same  day.  The main topic, for discussion  at the April 15th meeting will  be tourism.  One of the points which annoyed the members was that the  last meeting had been entirely  concerned with catering, with no  discussion on any major scheduling changes, which must have  been known to the ferry representatives at the time of the meeting.  It was felt that if the committee  was to be of any use then it must  be kept more informed in the  future.  School  Board  A brief meeting of the School  Board of School District #46  last Thursday, March 24th saw  the trustees approve several  staff matters. The principal  change will see the present principal of Gibsons Elementary  school, Mrs. Colleen Elson. be  transferred to the Pratt Road  Elementary school effective September 1977.. Mr. Wejdon Reid,  presently principal of Sechelt  . Elementary: school will be transferred to Gibsons Elementary  school to replace Mrs. Elson. No  replacement has yet been named  to replace Mr. Reid at Sechelt.  The other changes in :the staffing of local schools were occasioned by the leave of absence  granted home economic teacher  Nest Lewis. The leave of absence  is effective April 1st to June  30th. Replacing Ms. Lewis will  be Ms. Sue Ming, who is presently a part-time teacher in the  home economics department.  Ms. Margaret Morris will be  hired as a' part-time temporary  teacher to replace Ms. Ming.  In other school board business  the trustees agreed to be present  at the formal opening of the Sechelt Elementary School gym now  nearing completion. Trustees  also agreed with a motion made  by Trustee Don Douglas that in  the future when educational presentations are to be made to the  school board, school board business other than that of an emergency nature will be set aside to  facilitate the audience of the  educational presentation.  Objectives  Triumphant harbinger of Spring, the golden  daffodil       salutes the breezes and the sunshine.  *  ��� There were joint winners of  the $100.00 prize in the weekly  Lions 400 Club Draw. The joint  winners were Liona Sprangler  and Meena Gokool. Both work  for the B. C. Ferry Corporation.  The winning ticket was drawn by  Eunice Baker.  Approximately      twenty-eight  people were in attendance at the  wrap-up  meeting of the  series  which have been held recently  to discuss the educational objectives thought desirable at Gibsons  Elementary School.  The number  was   about  evenly   divided   between teachers and parents.; 7  Despite the slim gathering the  discussions were lively and  informative.    It was the consense  of   both   teachers   and   parents  that the areas  which  deserved  most attention in the elementary  school were the basics of reading,  writing,. listening   and   spelling  together with the more intangible  objective of helping the student:  develop a feeling of pride and  self-worth about themselves.  Principal of Gibsons Elementary, Colleen Elson, pointed out  the .. inter-relationship of these  objectives. Most children who  have a sense of pride and self-  worth are children who have  some success in the areas of  reading, writing, listening and  spelling.  Dr. Robinson of Simon Fraser  University, who chaired the meeting, left with Director of Instruction John Nicholson a considerable body of material designed to  I facilitate and enrich future  parent-teacher meetings.

Herbicides  In response to some expressed concern  by residents of this area about the herbicide program utilized by B. C. Hydro on  the power line which runs above all the  communities of the Sunshine Coast, last  week the Coast News undertook some  investigation of the matter. It took some  phone calls to locate the appropriate  department with stops at offices with  Orwellian names such as Vegetation  Management Supervisor but eventually  the right department was discovered.  It is a department of B. C. Hydro which  is called the Department of Environmental Services and a Mr. Cy White is the  supervisor.  Mr. White turned out to* be most  patient and helpful. He explained that  there were three basic materials that  were used by Hydro in their program  of vegetation control. They are Tordon  101 which is a mixture of Picloram and  2,4-D and is the basic herbicide for both  helicopter and ground spraying; 2,4-D  by itself which is used as a ground foliant  spray; the third was 2,4-D in combination  with 2,4,5-T which goes under the name  of Brushkiller and which is used to spray  and kill roots of growth which already  had been cut down to a height of six  inches. Queried about the alleged use  of pellets Mr. White said that this was  for spot application only and involved  a half ounce of Tordon 10K which was  applied to the base of a specific tree.  On the subject of the alleged birth  defects Mr. White said that this had been  caused in Vietnam by an "impurity" in  Tordon 101 in the form of Tetra Dioxan  and that no such effects could be caused  in the amount of spraying done by Hydro.  White listed the agencies ofthe various  government which Hydro had to satisfy  before the use of herbicides. They in--  cluded an Inter-Ministerial Pesticide  Committee comprised of representatives  of Departments of Agriculture and the  Environment, the B. C. Forest Service,  the Federal Environment Protection Service, the Department of Provincial Health  and the Department of Recreation and  Conservation. B. C. Hydro submits its  plans to this committee giving details  of the strength of the herbicide to be  used and a map ofthe arealo be sprayed.  Each agency involved had jts buffer zones  or so-called set-backs.      '''.;  According to Environmental Services  Supervisor White, the chance of the  herbicide washing downhill from the  power line into salmon streams or drinking water was virtually negligible since  the material was "locked into" the soil  or ionized with it so that it didn't move  around. He also said that accumulations  of the material could not be expected  since it tended to break down.  White pointed out that B, C. Hydro  uses only about 10% of the herbicide  used in this province. Other users are  farmers, the forestry, and the railways.  When asked about the suggestion that  the ground could be hand-cleared he said  this was a provincial government's decision and could not be effected by Hydro  without political action. He further  pointed out that much of the spraying  program took place over the roughest  of terrains and Workers' Compensation  had confirmed that over such terrain  people employed with chain saws could  expect to have a high accident rate with  consequent days lost from work.  White was reasonableness itself during  the discussion though at one point he did  admit that there was always an element  of "by guess and by God" in programs  of this type. It is obviously an area to  keep one's eye on and to attempt to find  out as much as possible about the program as it applies to the Sunshine  Coast.  from the files of Coast News  inberWhen  5YEARS AGO  A taut poetic drama "Suddenly Last  Summer" by Tennessee Williams is  presented at the Gibsons Elementary  School by the Driftwood Players featuring  John Burnside, Nest Lewis, Lynne Green,  Barbara Williams, Linda Guest, Colleen  Johnson, Betty Duncan, Merv Schneider  and with the assistance of Carl Smith,  Peter Reid, Gordon Hauka and also  featuring local poet, Peter Trower.

Frith, manager of  the Howe Sound run of the Black Ball  Ferry line, that 7 daily return trips will  be made by ferry. According to calculations, the ferry, with a capacity of 600  passengers will be able to move the entire  population of the peninsula to Horseshoe Bay and back, that is if everyone  decided to leave and return on the same  day! At any rate, this schedule is an  indication of the tremendous growth of  the area.  30 YEARS AGO  Today's Coast News appears in a larger  form than usual, having had to accommodate an advertisement of special interest,  as well as in an effort to "catch up"  on news items which were unfortunately  left out of last week's edition.  We hope to be able to continue the  regular handy size, with an increased  number of pages if the splendid support  of readers, advertisers and correspondents shown during the past month can  be maintained.

John Burnside  Television made one of its very  rare demands on my attention  last week. The occasion was the  presentation of an hour-long  dramatization of what the program called the Dawson Patrol,  more usually called the Fitzgerald  Patrol or simply the Lost Patrol.  Because of some personal acquaintance with the story I found  it of more than usual interest  and thought I might share a few  thoughts about it with you.  About twelve years ago I was  teaching school in Dawson City  and through the good offices of  one Art Fry, a notable of that  area, I was able to borrow a copy  of the diary of Inspector Fitzgerald who led the fatal patrol,  as well as the journal of Sergeant  Demptster - the man who found  them. It was a gripping story  and I wrote a radio play a half  hour long telling it. Subsequently  I got a two page letter back from  Esse W. Jung - I think that's  a fair approximation of the spelling - in essence asking me to  double the length to an hour and  resubmit. The re-writing never  got done, not because of indolence or any type of inertia, but  because when I came to reconsider the expansion of the story  I found that the only thing I  could honestly do was to delve  deeper into the psychology of the  men on the patrol and what I  found there I didn't want to dwell  on. It would have been like  throwing stones at the bones of  the men who had already paid  with incredible suffering and  death for the mistakes they had  committed.  It was not, you see, an extraordinary patrol. Every Christmas  in the early years of this century  a dog team took the mail from  Dawson City to Fort MacPherson  in the North West Territories and  return. In 1910 the Commissioner  of the North West Mounted  Police in Regina decided that  since the ranking officer in the  Western Arctic was now Inspector Fitzgerald in Fort MacPherson  he should be the man to take the  Christmas mail run between the  two communities. In previous  years it had fallen to the lot of  Sergeant Dempster of Dawson  City.  It is in the personality of Inspector Fitzgerald that I ran into  difficulties. As I studied the  material for the re-write I noticed  that I had developed an inescapable distaste for the man. The  tragedy, unlike the story of  Robert Falcon Scott and his men  who perished  in the  Antarctic  just two years later, was not  caused by any unusually bad  ?? luck but by the arrogance, stupidity, and racial prejudice of the  man who led the patrol.  I watched the television show  with great interest to see how it  would be handled. It was all  there, but hinted, glossed over,  and therefore ultimately dishonestly handled. Much was  made of the severity of the  weather as if that was an unusual  circumstance in the high Arctic  at the turn of the year. The  Christmas patrol between Dawson City and Fort MacPherson  always encountered severe  weather. It is a fact of northern  life.  Fitzgerald began the patrol  travelling light. There was a  question raised at the outset as  to the adequacy of the supplies  being carried. The Inspector's  predominant concern at the outset seemed to be an obsession to  set a faster time for the patrol  than had ever been done before.  Even Sergeant Dempster in his  careful official report said that in  his opinion Fitzgerald and his  men could not have hoped to .  make Dawson City on full rations  with the amount of food they  carried. That was the first  mistake.  Then there was the question  of a guide. For reasons that can  only be seen to be racial Fitzgerald refused to use an Indian  guide, this despite the fact that  a   band   of   Louchoux   Indians  travelling from MacPherson  to  Dawson in any case at the same  time. Instead he used Sam Carter  who had been living with the  Eskimos on Herschel Island for  three years and had been over  the trail only once before and that  in the summer time when the  terrain looks entirely  different.  That was the  second  mistake.  In fact they got lost within forty  miles of the start of the journey.  They went down the Peel River  to the place where it made an  enormous loop to the east.   The  trail led up Wolf Creek and then  across a portage to rejoin the  Peel at the end of its loop. Carter  missed the portage but they met  the group of Indians afore-mentioned and one of them led them  across the deep  snows of the  portage.  He offered his services  as a guide since he was going to  Dawson anyway.    Fitzgerald refused.   That was the third mistake.  The trail next led up the Little  Wind River and thence by a creek  across the divide of mountains  and into the Hart River system  and down to Dawson. Carter  couldn't find the right creek.  They wasted ten days looking for  it and while they were doing so  the Indians from Fort MacPherson, travelling at their leisure,  passed them and went on to Dawson and, when they found that  the hurrying patrol had not  arrived reported them as missing.  By the time Fitzgerald - who was  a man who "never turned back"  decided that with Carter as the  guide they were just not going to  find the trail across the divide  the Indians had passed them and  the patrol was on short rations -  in fact they were reduced to  eating their dogs and feeding  what was left of the fish to the  surviving dogs.  With a diminished number of  dogs and weakening men Fitzgerald continued to haul the  heavy mail sacks. His diary,  which seemed sadly neglected in  this T.V. version, reveals tersely  the diminishing number of miles  travelled each day and Dempster  writes in his journal about finding the abandoned camp fires  ever' closer with the mute evidence of an abandoned dog harness as further evidence of the  distress ofthe Patrol. With daily  fewer dogs, in terrible weather,  with men weakened by frostbite and scurvy, they dragged  the mail bags back to within  fifty miles of Fort MacPherson.  Another mistake.  Ten miles after they finally  abandoned the mail sacks Fitzgerald and Carter had to leave  the two constables behind in a  desperate effort to get help from  the nearby fort. One of them was  found by Dempster laid out on  his back with his arms folded  across his chest. His companion  had blown the top of his own head  off with his service rifle. A few  miles further on Dempster and  his men found Carter similarly.  laid out with Fitzgerald nearby  frozen stiff and propped up on  one elbow gazing downriver for  help that never came. None of  the four men weighed more than  ninety pounds when they were  found - a detail of horror which  the best of actors on television  cannot portray.  In his desire for records and  personal glory and his adamant  refusal to work with Indians  Fitzgerald must stand judged by  history as the perpetrator of an  avoidable tragedy. Three other  men paid with their lives for his  mistakes.  Slings & Arrows  ST*George Matthews  The topic of last week's column  was, why do people choose to  live in small communities?    My  research into the subject is continuing at its usual pace and I  am prepared to present an interim report on this week's extensive  survey.     I  spoke  to  Bob  Graham   and   Dave   Smethurst,  both friends and colleagues at  the high school and they passed  on the following reasons for living  in Gibsons:   you can live within  five  minutes of the  place  you  ' work; you can be home and out  fishing within a few minutes of  leaving work; going shopping on  Saturday is a social occasion when  you can meet your friends and  neighbours and share the latest  gossip between the dry cereal  counter  and the  frozen  foods;  you can own a hobby farm or  have   a   home   overlooking  the  water without being an oil magnate or mafia boss. Both Bob and  Dave liked the casual and informal style of our community where  you don't have to get dressed up  to go to work and you could wear  your grubbies to go shopping.  They commented on the congenial informality of various local  institutions,   schools,   municipal  offices, banks, school board and  soon. Both of these fellows made  it clear that they preferred this  kind of informal living and that's  why they lived here.   The intensive research on this important  public service inquiry continues.  On Sunday I went to the wicked  city to see something you will  probably never see on the Sunshine Coast. Before you get the  wrong idea, the object of the trip  was to see a rugby match between two women's teams from  Vancouver; the "Loose Ruckers"  and U.B.C. Women's rugby is  nothing new; it has been a popular intermural sport in American  colleges for a few years and there  are between sixty and a hundred  women's intercollegiate teams in  the United States. -1 had never  seen one of these games however  and I was curious to see how well  the women played.  The-game, a scheduled rematch between U.B.C. and > the  "Ruckers", was played at  Queen's Park in New Westminster on an exceptionally wet Sunday afternoon. Normally any  rugby game other than an international match will draw around  fifty spectators made up of strong  willed relatives, injured team  members and assorted first aid  personnel. This game however  was watched by at least two hundred who huddled under umbrellas in -the cold down-pour.  Among the spectators there  were the usual Neanderthal louts  who hang around such, affairs  and during the warmup they  made their predictable remarks  to the players out on the field;  on chap yelled out to a particularly bosomy scrummer, "Hey, tuck  your shirt in, at least you can try  to  look  like  a  rugby  player".  because it's  Spring  things  dare to do people  (&not  the other way  round)because it  'sA  pril  Lives lead their own  persons(in  stead  of everybodyelse 's)but  what's wholly  marvellous my  Darling  is that you &  i are more than you  &i(be  ca  us  e It's we) .  ,.  Another reminded the U.B.C.  captain as she was about to meet  the referee at mid field, "Don't  forget, you're supposed to shake  his hand not kiss him." As this  is a family newspaper I will not  even try to report the other  comments passed more quietly  around the crowd.  Interestingly enough however,  once the game got underway the ,  patronizing and derogatory remarks faded away as the women  showed the spectators some extremely rough, aggressive and  entertaining rugby. Even though  neither of these teams had been .,  playing for more than six months,  it became immediately obvious  that the members of both teams  were well coached, enthusiastic  and above all -were superb - athletes. Play in the scrums and  mauls was very rough and even  though the Ruckers outweighed  U.B.C, U.B.C. was more coordinated in their push and invariably won the scrums and  loose rucks. While play in the  forwards was hard, once the ball  came out, both teams showed  remarkable running. The U.B.C.  scrum half was especially quick  and she seemed to enjoy breaking  tackles and trying to run over  people.  The game was more wide open  than you would normally see in  second or third  division  rugby  with many opportunities for long  exciting runs.   For some reason,"  probably   due   to  inexperience,  neither team kicked very often.  Instead of pop kicking immediately before being  tackled  both  teams seemed to prefer to try and  run over the opposition. This was  quite often successful but occassional^  a jarring tackle  would  result. On one occasion a U.B.C.  wing forward tried to run the ball  to the short side and was successful for about ten yards when, just  as she had reached top speed, the  Rucker fullback hit her full  in  the chest with her shoulder in  as hard a tackle as I've seen on  a rugby field.  The U.B.C. player  was driven into the crowd by the  tackle while the Rucker fullback  collapsed on the ground with the  wind knocked out of her. In about  a minute she got up, .acknowledged the applause of the crowd,  and went back on to the field and  about five  minutes  later  made  another jolting tackle.   It was at  that point in the game when I  stopped    hearing    things    like,  "Your    makeup's    on    crooked  sweety" or "You can tackle me  anytime, baby". U.B.C. won 8-0.  It was quite an experience for  an old  chauvinist like   me.     I  don't expect we'll see a new rage  in women's rugby; the consciousness of both women and men will  have to change significantly before that is  likely to  happen.  It will be a while for example  before I will be able to hear,  "What the hell's the matter with  ya!    Get out there  and tackle  Evelyn." without having to hide  a small patronizing smile.  e.e. cummings From the book 73poems  ���:���:���:���:���:���:���:<  ���-�����-���.���:�����:�����;���;  ftft-  Ui  I- LETTERS to the EDITOR  Enjoyment     Candidate  Dear Mr. Burnside:  I am writing to tell you how  much I enjoy reading the "new"  Sunshine Coast News. Living  away from the peninsula, I look  forward to the arrival of the  paper, not only because it's the  only mail I can depend on, but,  because it keeps me up to date on  what's happening at home.  The editorials and weekly  features by yourself, George  Matthews, Peter Trower, John  Faustmann and Micheal Nutland,  seem to me to reflect the coast,  its personality .and concerns in  a deeper dimension than straight  news ever can. This is important  to me and the real reason behind  this letter -1 owe you a great deal  of thanks for your paper was a  great help to me in writing a term  essay for my Canadian Literature  course. I wrote about the writers  and literature of the Sunshine  Coast and how it reflects the rest  of British Columbia coast literature as well as it's own area.  The articles both regular and  feature in the Sunshine Coast  News introduced me to some new  writers and concerns and enriched my understanding of those  with which I am already familiar.  I was able to use these insights  to produce a more comprehensive  paper.  For the first time ever I find  myself reading a newspaper from  front to back and backwards to  the front again in case I've  missed anything, and it's not  the "in court" column I'm looking for anymore. Rather, it is  the "literary gems"; as George  Matthews put it, that I'm afraid  of overlooking.  Thanks for putting together a  newspaper that reflects the place  and people I call home.  I hope everyone at "home"  appreciates the literary quality  and accomplishments of your  paper as much as I do.  Emily Fraser  Lansdowne Residence  University of Victoria  +f-  ters  Editor:  Please, could someone explain  WHY the helicopters? I'm a  fairly recent newcomer to the  coast and have been frightened  out of my sleep on a number of  occasions now, by one of these  big, dark monsters. It flys so  low and alow that my whole  cottage shakes and everything in  it. The cats run for cover and the  dog starts to howl ��� I don't blame  them at all, I feel like joining  them also.  Please tell me, did we pick a  home right smack in the middle  of a flight pattern? Which if we  did seems strange as sometimes  the helicopter circles as if looking  for something that may be in  someone's home or yard - that's  how It flys! I do value my privacy  and do not wish every helicopter  that comes along to feel free to  look into my home. I'd really  appreciate any enlightenment on  this subject, before we pick up  stakes and move. Thank you.  Ms. Sheila McLaughlin  Editor:  It was about four months ago  that. I decided to seek the NDP  nomination for the federal riding  of Comox-Powell River. Since  then my family and I have met.  party members in various parts  of the new riding, and we've  learned that our most important  task is for me to get my name and  what I stand for known in the  riding.  Tahsis, my home town for six  ye"ars, is a community of about  2,000 people on the west coast  of Vancouver Island. Although it  makes for a rather large and  spread out riding, I think it was  a good thing that Tahsis was  placed in the riding. We, part  of the Alberni Constituency,  share many common concerns  with the northern parts of the  Comox and Mackenzie Constituencies. Concerns such as transportation difficulties and higher  costs of living.  However, issues such as these  would be voiced in parliament by  any successful candidate if they  were interested in the people in  their riding. I would certainly  pledge to serve the people as  well as possible in that regard.  But, in addition, I think it would  be the duty of a New Democratic  MP to challenge the system that  results in so many inequities.  The large corporations and the  wealthy have used the law to  serve their own special interests.  The New Democratic Party should  offer itself as the only possible  alternative, the only major party  that advocates an end to the in-  equitites in society.  If I were chosen to be our  party's candidate in the next  federal election, I would ask the  voters not to be distracted by  the red herring issues such as  bilingualism, abortion, and capital punishment. I would point  out that the issues are actually  Canadian unity, women's rights,  and the increasing crime rate.  I would discuss unemployment in  terms of how it serves the wealthy  by creating a large surplus pool  of labour among unorganized  workers.::^ (Weishould have the  opportunity to think of many  things other than whether we  will have a job tomorrow-, or  whether our paycheques will  match the bills.) I would express  my concern about the unconscious use of the world's resources and would advocate  greater planning.  Basically, what I would talk  about is economic democracy,  the principle the New Democratic  Party was founded on. Equality  and economic democracy, for all  people, in our country and in the  rest ofthe world.

Gibsons Athletic Association  would like to go on record as  supporting Mrs. Gibb's letter of  two weeks ago re the proposed  swimming pool. We will not back  the existing 24 x 60 proposal.  Gibsons does not need a "will  do" pool, build something the  community can be proud of and  that will last. Those of us who  have an aquatic background and  have worked to give some sort  of a swim program for the area  wish to go on record requesting  the village and areas to support  and build at least a 25 metre pool-  a facility that we can be proud of  . and can be put to good use, not  something that, is make-shift  and "will suffice" for now.  Gibsons is growing, let us try to  build something that will do for  future generations, not just for  this one.

Bowden  throughout most of the world and  are so varied in size, shape and  colour that it would be impossible  to put them all in order at this  time. I will give some information  so that you will understand about  these fish in general terms.  This family comes in small,  such as the dwarf cichlids,  medium, this being the fish  between four to seven inches,  and large. The dwarf cichlids  show the most of colour of all  three classes except in the case  ofthe great Rift Lakes cichlids.  Two of the most colourful dwarfs  I have so far seen is the ramirezi  and the kribensis or P. Pulcher,  the rams have a golden sheen  over most of the body. This is  broken up  by  black  markings,  are friendly to almost any fish,  except those which can be eaten.  Their belly region turns a bright  rosy red when well kept or when  breeding.  For the medium sized cichlids  two beautiful fish are the fire-  mouth and the discus. The fire-  mouth has a grayish black back  going to gray on the sides, and  turning to a bright orange-red  on the belly region. They have  black barring going vertically  from the back of the gills to the  tail. The firemouth is one of the  most peaceful of the medium  cichlids and will not bother anything they can not eat, unless  they are breeding. These fish  grow to about six inches. The discus is one of the most regal of  all tropical fish and it is also one  of the hardest to keep alive. This  fish averages six inches in diameter, the reason I say diameter  also when light is reflected off    is because they are circular in  the scales they give back a purple  to purple-blue sheen. This fish  rarely exceeds two inches and has  a bad temper when breeding.  The kribensis has almost as  many colours as the rainbow, if  healthy and properly kept.   They  FOR EASTER  mm  <c?  &  VARIETY FOODS  Gower Point Rd.  Gibsons       886-2936  shape and quite narrow from one  side to the other. They range  in colour from brown through  green to blue. They also have  vertical barring starting from the  eye to the tail.  For the large cichlids I will  use the oscar and the texas cichlids.   The oscar. often sold as a  cute little one or two inch fish,  will turn into a twelve inch garbage can. The reason I say this  being they will consume vast  amounts of almost any meaty  food. The oscars are usually  black with gray or orange or both  colours running in veins over  their bodies. Oscars will get  along with most fish it cannot  swallow. They also become  attached to their owners after  they get used to them.  The texas cichlid is a twelve  inch brute, who is so pugnacious  that he can't get along with any  other fish, he will kill any that  can't kill him first. His body  is bluish-gray with some dark  bands on the rear half, there are  also many bluish or greenish  spots all over his body.' His  eating habits are very similar to  the oscars.  Almost all cichlids do well  when fed live foods. They also  eat conventional dry food but in  the case of the larger cichlids  dry food may be too small.   Beef  heart or liver cut into strips is'  usually accepted with great relish  by the bigger cichlids. I will try  to narrow the field of cichlids  down into various types at a  later date.

When I was a country  kid struggling up through a  rocky adolescence in the late  Forties, I dreamed only of hitting  the city where I imagined the  action was. The predictable  village with its cows, gossip and  streets that were rolled up at  nine o'clock on most nights  seemed unutterably boring to me  at seventeen. I yearned for the  glitter and glamour of the Big  Smoke.  My discontent with smalltown  limitatipns was fanned by the  tales I heard from my expatriate  best-friend of that time, who had  moved to the city a couple of  years before and now only came  up on holidays. The post-war  zoot-suit era was just beginning  and his talk of jazz-wise buddies,  eager girls and wild weekend  parties, filled me with envy.  It all sounded sophisticated and  hep (for the expression 'hip' had  not then come into use) beyond  words. I was overjoyed in late  1947 when fate decreed that we  too migrate to Vancouver. Now  I would swim the mainstream of  life with the rest.  Quite frankly, it proved a bit  of a disappointment. The'swinging' scene I'd been promised was  considerably less than that.  There were parties almost every  weekend, all right, mostly at the  house of a gangling carrot-topped  character called Deke, whose  elderly parents were unusually  permissive. But these were  pretty innocent affairs to jazz-  records. A couple of the guys  who were going-steady, usually  brought their girl-friends but  there were seldom any spare  women.   Many of the members  of that loose-knit gang were car-  nuts who seemed more interested  in tinkering with hot-rod engines  than girls.  The group when not at Deke's,  hung out mostly at a small candy-  store, a few blocks from Broadway and Granville, called Uncle's. There were a couple of  booths in the back and here our  illegal liquor-purchases were  generally negotiated. Our supplier was a fellow-member of  the group called Geek who had  the-then-useful advantage of.  looking considerably-older than  his years. We'd order our poison  beforehand and he'd pick it up  at the liquor-store for a slight  service-charge. To conceal his  illicit wares, he was obliged to  wear a topcoat even on warm  summer nights. What Geek  generally brought us were mickey s of cheap rye. We put a good  dent in these right on the.premises and took an abnormally long  time over our cokes as a result  but old Uncle, .the proprietor  never said anything.  Since the parties at Deke's  were such a washout as far as  women went, my friend, Dapper,  his pal Bird and myself began  venturing across the bridge into  the downtown area in search of  adventure. Our ostensible mission was to try and pick-up girls  but none of us was particularly  adept at that tricky art. We  lurked about cafes and bowling-  alleys, trying to strike-up conversations with random girls and  striking-out more often than not.  We started to make out a bit  better once we began going to  dances and a typical one might go  something like this:  with  John  Faustmann  Tommy  Douglas  A Biography by  Doris French Shackleton  It has been a recent development, probably spurred to some  extent by our excessive neighbours to the south, that Canadians have begun to subject their  politicians to the close personal  scrutiny usually accorded the  Hollywood stars. Of course public figures should be subjected  to this scrutiny, but beyond a  certain point it becomes useless.  The front pages of our papers  are filled with the seamy trivia  of Mackenzie King's seances, or  Margaret Trudeau's tastes in  rock n' roll, while twelve pages  back, in a miniscule column, we  learn that the federal government  is still selling nuclear reactors to  oriental dictators.  It's refreshing then, to read the  biography of a politician who has  always avoided this cult of the  personality. In the introduction  there is a quote from Tommy  Douglas about' the subject of ���  this book: "You won't find me  very interesting. I never do anything but work." It is just this  tone of self-depreciation- that  pervades this work. Those of us  looking for trivial details about  the man are sure to be disappointed. Douglas is in this book,  but more by inference than anything else. The concerns of his  adult life - his socialist ideals,  his humanist principles - are the  heroes here. The work he did  was always of a co-operative  nature, and even in his biography  the individuality of the man is  always in the background. The  reader must look carefully to  develop a portrait.  Several   incidents   from   his  childhood seems portentious. As  a boy in Glasgow, he recalls  listening to the soap box orators  in Glasgow Green, where men  like the firebrand Jimmy Maxton  were urging the workers to down  their tools and stop making munitions. Later, as a youth in Winnipeg, he and another friend witnessed the riots and police brutality of the general strike.  The son of a factory worker,  Tommy grew up in the real world  of wages and work. In his first  job with a printer, Tommy was  the one who studied during lunch  hour rather than play poker with  the rest of the boys. It was this  same drive that led him to be  provincial lightweight boxing  champion, and later took him  through Brandon College, where  he was ordained a Baptist minister.  Under the leadership of J.S.  Woodsworth (one-time resident  of Gibsons) the CCF party was  founded in 1933. By 1935 Tommy  was a member of parliament,  and a champion of the ordinary  people. He joked about free  enterprise in his speeches:  "It's every man for himself,  as the elephant said when he  danced among the chickens."  But it was during his twenty  years as Premier of Saskatchewan  that he really displayed his  abilities. The CCF was responsible for reforms in the province  which brought it quickly into the  20th Century. Their medical  scheme was the first of its kind  in Canada. Their rural electrification program, their highways  program, and the legislation  designed to help the average  fanner were years ahead of the  time. With the temporary defeat  of the party in 1964, their record  was such a strong one that the  Toronto Star was moved to .write:  "For 20 years the CCF government in Regina was the flagship  for social change for the whole  country.. .remarkably ���" efficient  and relatively free from corruption."  It is this record of achievement  that Tommy Douglas must certainly be proud of. As the reader  of this biography will find, Mr.  Douglas is not interested in displaying his own personality. He  would rather be known for his  stand on the issues. This stand  has been enlightened and consistent throughout his career.  When Japanese Canadians were  being interred during WWII,  Tommy included one on his staff,  despite popular outcry.  In later years he vehemently  opposed such things as the Wat  Reeling through Halloween streets  from the backbooth of Uncle's candystore  where we've knocked-back the better part  of a twenty-six of whiskey - we're off.  to vie for girls at the Twelfth and Fir  teentown dance me and Dapper and Bird  who's somehow got some eggs and lobs one  at a passing streetcar - laughing we run  round a corner into the arms of a cop -  okay whatinhell's going on here? -  nothing officer honest we 're just  going to the dance - oh yeah? - he checks  our i.d. but doesn't frisk us luckily  for bottlepacking Dapper - the dance  opens its bright doormouth and swallows us -  everyone's there shuffling and jiving  in the whoopee gloom - Frankie Laine's  shouting Shine over the p.a. system - no band -  only a boisterous fridaynight gathering -  rocking to records - gathering  no moss on the ride to midnight - chicks  in tight sweaters skirts even draped slacks like all  us tightcuffed romeos come to woo the hopeful hell  out of them - Deke the drummer's got  a new one-button zoot-suit - Johnny Pazan  looks tough in streetboy chinos - we're wearing  the sharpest we've got - Wyonnie Harris  is belting out Good Rocking Tonight - all right  who's that pensive girl with the pretty face  asearch - drift over and accost her  in the dim crush - now loveballads lick around us  trumpets purring saxophones moaning fine -  Sinatra's telling us all is well in makebelieve  loveland - no one is more susceptible  to teenage fantasies than me as we move  into new possibilities - her name's Maxine -  I clutch her for a dumb dream's worth  in the moil and pulse and push - sitting  out the fast ones with cokes and coffee - drifting  back into the warm rhythmic sea  of the slower numbers - can it possibly be? -  we swim rapturously toward some vague  idyllic future with movements of new knowing  among three-hundred mostly-innocent kids  on the make or on the stagline - honeymusic moans -  we melt against each other until the tempo  shifts upward - somehow I'm in the can  with Dapper and Bird taking a slug - hey man  says Bird you know that girl you 're with's  got a clubfoot - oh yeah? I say - in all  that mob I never even noticed - later  I look and he's right and it shouldn't matter  but it does - love goes down hill like a lead balloon -  I ditch her and end a double-dyed rat  with Dapper and Bird in a lonesome letdown cafe  talking of women we'll never win.  After all these years, I  still  feel a twinge of shame over that  incident.   In any event, we fumbled   on   through   this    fallow  period.   We continued our generally-futile   downtown   odysseys  that seldom availed us much beyond  mile hangovers  the  next  day. In the end, we all acquired  girl-friends of one sort or another  and ceased our aimless odysseys  for a time.    But the flavour of  those gauche and thwarted days  stayed with me.    Ages later, I  wrote a song about them.  KISSES IN THE WHISKEY  When the kisses were still in the whiskey  and Sally Singer peddled her hips  along Granville Street in winter neon  for trick-money and occasional tips,  we moved up in-collared topcoats -  daggery black,shoes flashing bright  past Sammy the spastic newsboy  like bogus gangsters in the night.  With our tender boyfaces shamming tough -  cigarettes nailed to them -  the truths of life staggered obviously by  but we looked through them -  in our tightcuffed alley scrapper pants  we threaded through the iatenight bustlers -  middleclass kids in hoodlum drag  trying to fake that we were hustlers.  But we never thought of it that way-  we were happy at our Friday games  with our mickey-bottles in our pockets  eyeing all the easy dames -  we were transfixed by all those flashy chicks  although we seldom caught any -  sweet Sally Singer would have fixed us up  but we never had her kind of money.  I wish I could be that ignorant again  embarked on some old sophomoric fling  far too callow to understand  that life was other than a Friday thing -  I miss our vanished naive selves  young as spring-randy colts and just as frisky  when Sally Singer peddled her hips  and there were still kisses in the whiskey.  &tH^SMll��  8:00 p.m.  Sun., Mon., Tues.

In 1969, when his daughter  Shirley was framed by the Los  Angeles police for her involvement in the Black Panther program of breakfasts for underprivileged children, his statement  was succinct: "I am proud of the  fact that my daughter believes,  as I do, that hungry children'  should be fed whether they are  Black Panthers or white Republicans."  Although Mr. Douglas has resisted the attempts of his biographer to lionize him, the portrait of a consistent, hard-working  idealist.manages'to emerge. His  has been the voice of the Canadian social conscience for the past  forty years; a wry, humourous,  patient voice, given to chiding the  wealthy, and encouraging the  workers.  Twenty years after leaving  Scotland, he returned briefly for  a tour of Glasgow. He was surprised to see a bronze bust of  Jimmy Maxton, that had been  erected, in the Kelvin Grove  Museum. It caused him to remark to his guide, Sir Hector  MacNeil: "It confirmed my  impression that there is nothing  the upper classes are so fond of  as a dead radical."  With luck, the rich few won't  be able to be fond of Tommy  Douglas for a long time to come.  ���627. or *417.  Which would you rather pay  for home heating?  That's what it takes in this area. Pay a  lot for electric home heating. Or buy oil.  You get just as much heat energy for a lot  less money.* And you also get a clean,  comfortable, more versatile heating  system as well.  Oil is clean.  Your Esso furnace burns oil completely  and safely, inside the furnace. That's why  the air that warms your home never cqmes  in contact with the flame. So the warm air  that comes from your furnace is just as  clean as the cool air that goes into it.  Cleaner in fact, because it's filtered.  Oil is comfortable.  Baseboard electric heating relies on  convection currents to circulate the air.  That's slow and not very efficient. But  your forced air system keeps the air in  continual circulation, distributing heat  throughout your whole home. More  completely. More evenly.  Oil is efficicient.  Oil not only gives you more heat energy  for your dollar, but a well tuned furnace  will make sure you get every possible BTU  out of every drop.  And a new Esso furnace is so efficient,  it can save up to 10% on fuel bills, depending on the condition of the furnace it  replaces.  If you add a central humidifier to your  forced air furnace, you'll save even more.  Humidified air feels warmer than dry air.  So you can turn down your thermostat,  burn less oil and feel just as comfortable  as before. With never a worry about dry,  winter air.  Oil can be the basis  of a complete home  comfort system.  Central humidifying is only the start.  Once your forced air system is installed,  you can also add an Esso Electronic Air  Cleaner. Central Air Conditioner...just  about anything you want for complete  home comfort control.  Add it up. Oil is still one of the better  values around. Call your local Esso Home  Comfort Dealer.  'Comparison based on the local cost of a gallon of  fuel oil versus a KWh of electricity. The average  home requires 800 gallons of furnace oil -each  gallon producing 167,000 BTU's of heat. At 52.2c  per gallon, this would come to $417. per year.  The same amount of heat would take 29.328 KW at  2e (plus 7% provincial tax) per KWh average, this  amounts to $627. per year.'

Darren  Craze won the playoffs against  league winner Jim McEwan in a  tightly contested game. The final  score was 5 to 4 and the low score  was an indication of the fine  quality ofthe play.

Gibsons Wanderers play to a tie  The Gibsons Wanderers played  to a 3-3 tie against a mixed team  of the Renegades and Pender  Harbour Bananas Sunday, March  20th. Rain and the sandy high  school field made play difficult,  but both teams put out a good  effort.  Verne Joe scored the first goal  and Duncan Campbell scored  the other two goals for the Pender Harbour Banana bunch.  Best players for the visiting team  were Mike Kammerle and Baba  (Barry) Johnson.  Wanderers Danna Paul scored  on a blast from 12 yards followed  by Peter Cerny who dribbled  around two players before popping the ball in the left hand  corner. The final goal for the  Wanderers was a deek pass from  Bjorn Bjornson to Ken Miles  who first-timed the ball into the  lower left corner.  Stars for the Wanderers were  Nick Bergnach, Jan de Reus and  Steve Miles. John Crosby played  well in his first game with the  Wanderers.

Hockey Playoff action  According to the information  in our last commercial hockey  column, Game #3 in the best of  - five final playoffs?' would have  been played by now, but alas  and alak, our information was  incorrect. The next game is to  be played Tuesday, tonight at  8:00 p.m. at the arena. Now  that that's all been cleared up  the situation in which Roberts  Creek finds itself is hardly enviable. On Saturday, March  19th, the Wakefield team nipped  the Creek 4t3 in overtime. The  following day the two rivals met  for the second game.  This match turned into a free  hitting affair which means a lot  of cheap shots were given out  by both sides.    The net result  was a fight in the dying seconds  of the game, the verdict already  decided. This game was decidedly of poorer calibre especially on  the part of Roberts Creek. Wakefield's precision passing paid off  after as they built up a 5-1  second period lead. The final  period saw Roberts Creek tightening defensively and add two  more tallys, their last one with  just a handful of seconds remaining.  Down 2-0 in games in a best of  five series. Do or.die; sink or  swim. It's now or never, all these  sayings come to mind. Will they  give it all they've got? Can the  two-time champs come back from  what looks to be certain defeat  and reclaim their throne?  ��)un/hine  Wheel/  & Equipment  885-  5010  Across from the Sechelt Legion  %  W DISCOUNT ON  ALL NEW BIKES!  1 WEEK ONLY (March 29 - April 5)  GS 750 Suzuki  GS 400 Suzuki  GT 380 Suzuki  GT 250 Suzuki  USED BIKES  1975175 Kawasaki  1974 250 Kawasaki  1974100 Hodaka  1972350 Kawasaki  RM 125 Suzuki  TS125 Suzuki  TC100 Suzuki  RV90 Suzuki  S695.00  *725.00  $449.00  $695.00  THE  WlBODSfiflNGS  Fresh Grade'A'  FRYING CHICKEN  MEATS  Halves  79* lb  Sliced  SIDE  BACON  $ 1.49 lb  BVD6ETPMCED  ' TOP QUALITY  Canada 'A' Beef  ROUND  STEAK  Canada'A' Beef  BARON  of BEEF ,      Armlu  *1.39lb   149lb  Co-op Fancy  assorted peas  Co-op  orange crystals  Co-op  red kidney beans  Co-op  mincemeat  Co-op Chicken Noodle  soup mix  minute rice  Blue Ribbon Black  tea bags  Harvest  margarine  Co-op Rapeseed  cooking oil  Rover  dog food  Kleenex  facial tissue  14fi.oz.,  14fl.OZ.  24fl.oz.  2V4 oz.  24 oz.  100's  3lb.  32fl.oz.  25V2 0Z.  200's  25c  ���1.19'  2/69c  ���1.19  6/85c  $1.29  $1.29  $1.25  95c  2/69*  59c  BANANAS  Fancy  ANJOU  PEARS  BROCCOLI  CHERRY TOMS.  4 lb.  41b  ���1.00  $1.00  39  59  ���'"v,.

When the  Hall on March 21st as the Elphin- gathering resumed their seats  stone New Horizons held their the "Sunshine Choristers" came  Spring Festival which featured on the stage. Under the baton  an Arts and Crafts display, and of Mrs. Jessie Gairns, the choir-  much entertainment, men sang "Road to the Isles",  Programmes were issued, each their voices blending perfectly,  bearing a number for a door prize The ladies followed with "The  draw, with a resume of events. Shepherd's Dance" for a pleasing  The arts and crafts items were contrast. The last two numbers,  many and varied, covering seve- with full choir were "Passing  ral tables and walls, displaying By" and "Come to me, bend to  macrame and crewel work; hand me". Mr. Andy Randall sang a  wood carvings; hand painted solo "When Irish Eyes are  pictures; ceramics, etc. A Red Smiling", inviting the audience  Cross display included quilting, to join him in the chorus, a much  crocheting and knitting; even appreciated gesture, Andy,  a "pet rock" found its way on the      "H"5 final ff���*' alw^s * ^at  table.    While the exhibits were  to watch were *e PuPds * **�����  J. Millward. These young dancers proved what can be done  with competent training. They all  danced with grace and precision,  from tap dancing to ballet. Many  in the audience wished that such  opportunities had been available to them in the days of their  youth.  We regret that Mr. Burnside,  the editor of this newspaper, was  unable to give his recitation "The  Ballad of Bessie's Boil" by  Robert Service, but he promised  to return on a future occasion  when we will expect a double  feature.  This brought us to the schedu-  being viewed, background music  was provided by the "Redman  Team" with Arthur playing the  violin and Mary the piano, and  the people humming to the familiar melodies.  Next came two soloists, Mrs.  Betty Tobiasson singing "The  Kerry Dance" and "Killarney".  Mr. Walter James followed with  "Sure They Call It Ireland"  and "The Little Irish Girl", thus  honouring St. Patrick in song.  For a change of pace, Mrs.  Ellen Marshall presented her  "Gibsons Scottish Country Dancers". First, a Strathspey called  "The Glasgow Highlanders";  second, "Reel of the 51st Division" composed by two Highland  officers in a P.O.W. camp during  World Warn. Thirdly, "Marie's  Wedding" and a jig called "Wild  Geese". After viewing the  lassies performing their strenuous manoeuvers, the audience  was perspiring more than the  dancers.  Following this was a short  intermission to permit a leg-  stretch, and a guessing contest  which  involved  estimating   the  led supper time of 5 p.m. and the  smorgasbord meal was served  sharp on time. Hot casseroles,  scalloped potatoes, chili, jellied  vegetables, beans and tossed  salads. Then followed buns,  broken glass dessert, with cookies  and a St. Patrick's cake. The line  up for "seconds" proved the  popularity of the food, aad for  those who could still find room,  there were plenty of' 'thirds* *.  During the mealtime, the prize  drawings took place. Among  the winners for the door prizes  and guessing competitions were  Mr. John Galliford, Mr. Bob  Leask, Mrs. Win Horney, Mary  and Arthur Redman and others.  At this time Mrs. Betty Merrick  presented a going-away gift to  Mrs. Neva Newman who invited  the people to visit her at her  new location. We will surely  miss her, congratulations Salmon  Arm! To help shake down the  meal, a community sing-song  took place using our own song  booklets; Mrs. Betty Tobiasson  being the song leader. As the  people finally left for home, Mrs.  Mary Redman played "Now is  the Hour" and "Adieu, kind  friends" making a happy ending  to a very friendly and informal  afternoon of fun.  To all the entertainers and  their leaders, we extend our  hearty vote of thanks. Artists  everywhere are noted for their  generosity in giving of their time  and sharing their talents for the  benefit of others, and our local  artists carry'out those high traditions.  Lastly, it is obvious to all in  the know, that an afternoon that  ran with such precision and  smoothness could only be accomplished by good leadership, careful planning, and the untiring  efforts of a dedicated "inner  core".    Special thanks then to  Mrs. Edith Fraser who undertook this responsibility, and the  local co-operation of those ladies  who supported her throughout.  A big thanks to Mrs. Gwen  Hicks, tiie sergeant-major of the  kitchen and her industrious  staff who worked unheralded  Hack-stage. When Gwen Orders  "Go", or "Come hither" - you  first salute, then on the double!  That's how her platoon accomplishes its mission so successfully  and delivers the ammunition on  schedule. Ever think what would  happen if the kitchen staff suddenly appeared with signs "on  Strike! All Food Declared Hot"  as we were starting to eat. Pel' h  the thought!  And a final thanks to .  Grose the Guiding Light  group  who  presided  ovet  stage and hall lights, curtt  coffee pots, prize drawings,  ending up in the kitchen sink  washing most of the dishes.  Where's men's lib? When the  kitchen staff was paged to appear  outside to take a bow, Bill was  ordered "out" (by you know who)  and presented himself with soap  suds still dripping from his elbows. So there we leave him,  making an appropriate ending to  a wonderful Happy Horizons  celebration that will be remembered for a long time to come.
