Array *.��!/.    '^     :Z-.,,V  ��� oWf-.'i'r,.*-.,'"*D*i*^��iV"A"fc��."'  egzff&v  reprieve in  Ottawa  '��� jy'v.'.V ��� it-S.Z^\v:?%$$$$&  - Awhirlwind visit to Ottawa last week by four representatives  of coastal fishermen, including Bob Corlett of Gibsons, succeeded in achieving a one-year delay in the controversial two  licence system for salmon trollers in the Gulf of Georgia. The  group left Ottawa last Monday, March 28th and arrived back  in. B. C. late Wednesday night. They included, in addition to  Corlett, salmon trollers Kaz Yamamoto, and Frank Cox along  with George Hewison of the United Fishermen and Allied  Workers Union.  f.The highlight of the visit was a meeting with the Minister  of Fisheries, Romeo Lablanc in his office on the afternoon of  Tuesday, March 29th, along with the senior official in the  Fisheries bureaucracy, Cliff Levelton. At first it appeared that  Leblanc would not be able to meet with the west coast group  but after a telephone call in which it was indicated that they  would rather meet with him before rather than after a planned  press conference, a meeting was speedily setup.  Abalone regulations  It's not often we get a glimpse inside a federal Cabinet  Minister's office. Shown here, from left to right, are  Cliff Levelton, senior official in the Department of the  Environment and his minister  as they met last week with the  fishermen.  the Hon. Romeo Leblanc  delegation of West Coast  , During his recent visit to  Ottawa, Rob Corlett, member of  the delegation of salmon trollers  also took the opportunity to speak  to Fisheries mandarin Cliff  Levelton about the new abalone  regulations which have just gone  into effect this season.  i Corlett pointed but that one of  the stated purposes of, the so-  called Davis plan was that fishermen would befable to use the  same boat for-a" number of purposes and yet the new abalone  regulation made it impossible for  him to use abalone equipment  that he had already purchased,  that' there had been no prior  indication of the i regulations,  and that by their very nature  they were blatantly unfair.  The regulations forbid anyone  to fish abalone unless abalone  comprises 50% of their "fishing"  income. The difficulty arises in  that a part-time fisherman with  a shore job may be allowed to  fish abalone because it comprises  50% of his "fishing" income but  a full-time fisherman , fishing  other species is forbidden to catch  abalone. Levelton assured Corlett that he would study the  matter.  Flying course available    Weather  One of the' more exciting  offerings of the Adult Education  Program in this area is the projected Flying Course which will  be starting shortly. The instructor of the course will be Mrs.  Vera    McAllister    of    Madeira  .."���Kiev-   ;*% '���-������,���< ,...7;':.U- *'~v     ..'J.^^-i-.jt-. -V-,'. .".-���......  Mrs. McAllister is a housewife  turned pilot. She took her  flying instruction after her family  had grown up and her experience  includes two years of frying as  a bush pilot in Norther Saskatchewan, Manitoba and Alberta.  More recently she spent two  years with Victoria Flying Co.,  the last year she was the Operational Manager for the company  and the previous year she was  their Chief Flying Instructor.  Mrs. McAllister has also done  part-time charter work in British  Columbia and before all of this  she raced planes.  According to Mrs. McAllister  ten people already are getting  their pre-instruction medical,  inspection prior to taking the  course. "The medical requirements for a private licence are  quite lenient," Mrs. McAllister  told the Coast News recently.  "The only things that might prevent a person learning to fly for  medical reasons would be those  problems that might lead to a  sudden incapacity such as diabetes,  high blood  pressure   or  epilepsy."  According to Mrs. McAllister  the flying course takes a mini  mum   of  thirty-five   hours   and  would cost a minimum of $1,100.,  part of which can be recovered  from income taxes.   The average  amount of time taken, says Mrs.  McAllister,   would   be   in   the  neighbourhood      of      forty-two  :,���hours.......  . Many    trained   pilots;,  take the classroom part of the  course which deals with regulations, weather, navigation, and  airplane engines as a refresher  course.  The course is being given  under the auspices of the Chilli-  wack Flying Club in conjunction  with Adult Education.  Sea  Cavalcade  At least six pretty girls from  this area will be required to express an interest in running for  the title of Sea Cavalcade Queen  this year. Last year there was  no competition and if the Gibsons  Sea Cavalcade does not produce  a queen this year then they will  be disqualified from the P.N.E.  pageant.  . There are lots of pretty girls  in the area. So come on you  girls, if you would like to try for  the title get in touch by writing  Verna Rivard of Gibsons or  phoning Tracy Hamilton at 885-  3602. The deadline for entries  is the 15th of April.  stays dry  The month of March continued  the dry weather we have seen for  the past seven months. There  was no snowfall and the .rainfall  was 100.6mm., down from 133.1  mm;7bf-Mar^  year average for March,is7l23v2  mm. and this marks the seventh  consecutive month that this area  has recorded less than average  precipitation.  At the same time, comparisons  with last year can be somewhat  misleading. Although, for example, the six-month precipitation  figures from October to March  in 1976 were almost double the  figures for this year -1,2850 mm.  or 50.59 inches as compared to  59.1 mm. or 23.27 inches - 1976  was the wettest year by far in  the sixteen cycle and 1977 was  the dryest. Perhaps a more  reasonable comparison can be  made by comparing the figures  given for this year with the sixteen-year average. The sixteen-  year average precipitation figures  are 990.6 mm. or 38.95 inches.  Mathematicians among us will  note that 1976 and 1977 combine  to give just about the sixteen-  year average.  The daytime high temperature  for March this year was 14 C,  compared to a high temperature  of 12 C in 1976. The overnight  low this, year was -1 degrees C  compared to -6 C last year.  Yes, folks, that's Pratt Road and they're  finally paving it. Happy days!  Wildlife Society  still hopeful about park  The Gibsons Wildlife Society  wish it pointed out that their  application to establish a Provincial park at the headwaters  of Chapman Creek has not been  arbitrarily refused as was erroneously reported in the Coast  News of March 22nd. At the  present time the status of the  matter is that the Public Utilities Committee has recommended  that the directors study the report  of the Greater Vancouver Water  District on Probably Consequences of opening watersheds to  Public Access.  Subsequent to the study of the  report a meeting will be held with  the Planning Director and Mr.  Hind-Smith to discuss the proposal to establish a Provincial  Park in the area. Mr. Hind-  Smith has expressed himself as  hopeful that a decision may yet  be made in favour of the Wildlife Club's proposal.  Music Festival  starts next week  Post Office  All post offices, postal stations  and sub post offices will be closed  in the B. C. & Yukon District  and there will be no letter carrier,  rural route, parcel post or street  letter box collections on Good  Friday, " April 8th and Easter  Sunday, April 10th.  "Sunday service" will apply  to special delivery and street  letter box collections on Easter  Monday, April 11. Wicket services will be closed at all post  offices, postal stations and sub  post offices that day.  Service will be normal on Saturday, April 10.  Davis Plan  Hewison said that many of the  ��� difficulties facing west coast  fishermen today could be traced  to what he described . as the  disastrous Davis plan which was  implemented in 1968 and authored by Jack Davis, then a federal  cabinet minister and now a member of the Provincial cabinet in  Victoria in charge of Transportation. Hewison put forward the  position of the west coast fishermen maintaining that the two-  licence system was a cure which  would killthe patient. He maintained that what must be done  was the elimination of the worst  aspects of the Davis plan and  that the best place to start would  be in not implementing the two-  licence system.  Leblanc recognized that a review of the whole Davis plan was  needed, perhaps even within the  next year and that he wanted to  know whether to continue with  the Davis plan, to amend it or  to scrap it. Hewison replied that  the effect of the Davis plan.on  this coast was devastating and  had led to problems of pyramiding tonnage, over-capitalization,  and increased competition for  non-increasing stocks.  Two Licence  The Minister of Fisheries said  he was not adamant about the  two-licence policy but felt that  it might be in the long-range  interests of the salmon trollers  if it was implemented as a conservation measure. Fisherman/.  Frank Cox answered that mobility  was the key to survival in fishing,  even with the relatively small  trblHugboatsi THefis  to be able to move to .whew the  fish were or they could be ruined  in one or two bad seasons.  : Corlett said that what the group  wanted was at least a one-year  delay in the implementation of  the two-licence proposal and  Leblanc answered that his department was not struck on immediate implementation of the proposal if the delay would produce  results. He asked Levelton if a  total review would be possible  in one year and Levelton replied  in the affirmative. Leblanc said  he would consider the matter and  later in the week in reply to a  question raised in the House of  Commons announced the deferment of the two-licence policy.  It was the consensus of the  west coast group that, despite  the impression left by a phone call  two weeks ago by Liberal M.P.  Jack Pearsall of Coast Chilcotin  riding, there was every intention  in Ottawa to go ahead with the  two-licence, proposal, this year  prior to their visit.  Discussion  After the meeting with Leblanc  the group adjourned to Levelton's  office for further discussion on  fishing matters and then followed  up with a special: meeting of the  Forestry and Fishing Committee.  Throughout these meetings the  representatives of the commercial  fishermen stressed their willingness to work in close co-operation  with sport fishermen. It was felt  that sports fishermen would not  object to paying some form of  fishing licence but would like to  be assured that such monies did  not disappear into the General  Treasury but would be utilized  directly in Salmon Enhancement  Programs.  Manoeuvres  N.D.P. member of parliament  for New Westminster, Stu Leg-  gatt, had agreed to put the question of the. implementation of  the two-licence system to the  minister during the' question  period in the House of Commons  and had so indicated, as he is  required to do, in writing to the  minister before the Commons  sitting. Apparently, however,.  Leblanc preferred the question,  to which he was about to give a  positive response, to come from  . a member of his own party and  turned it over to Liberal M.P.  Jack? Pearsall of this riding.  Leblanc then said that after discussions with; representatives of  the fishing industry the two-  licence system ��� would be postponed for one year and the licencing procedure examined to take  into account problems for one  into account problems in the west  coast fisheries that had been  caused by his predecessor.  The west coast delegation left  Ottawa feeling that their visit  had been most worthwhile. They  felt that the two-licence scheme  would have been quickly rammed  through but for their: representations to the minister. They, also  during their time in his office  raised the question of the free-'  dom of access to information;  which concerned their livelihoods;  and were assured by Leblanc that  such would be available. There  was mentioned also the .possibility of a commission to study  the west coast fisheries with a  view to correcting the worst problems caused by the Davis plan.    7  During their time in the Parliament Buildings the efforts-of  the representatives of the salmon  trollers to be heard were greatly  facilitated  by  the   kindness  of  Conservative B. C.  M.P. John 7  Fraser of Vancouver South who '  allowed them the full use of his  office as a base from which they  could set up their various meet- :  ings.   The delegation would also  like to thank all the local people  who took the time to write letters ~  to Ottawa.   The volume of mail  that   preceded   the   delegation  assured them of a serious reception when they arrived in tiie'  nation's capital.

Criticism  Conservative   federal   M.   P.   Gerald  Baldwin has established something he  calles The League to Restore Parliamentary Control.    He has some interesting  things to say in a press release which  arrived the other day.   He begins with  what surely must be a basic:   "Information in the hands of the people, freely  available, with the exception of a few  clearly defined exemptions, is essential  to any democracy, and it is imperative  to the  efficient  functioning  of Parliament".    Mr. Baldwin, however, points  out that those who rule have  all the  :   advantage, even  in democracies.     He  1 points  out  the   enormous   increase   in  '~ recent years in the extent by which the  * rulers have taken the right to govern by  ~- means of regulations, Order-in-Council,  and   Decrees.       "...these   factors   are  dangerously enhanced by the  Government's and Bureaucracy's obsession with  secrecy, which has increased the bewilderment, the confusion, and'the outrage  of the rest of us...Deception, lies, con-  % cealment, cover up of everything from  t stupid,    unnecessary    spending    right  "'. through to errors, and corruption is the  order of the day."  These are the words of a man daily  in the Parliament Buildings. They are  not the words of a despairing man - they  are the words of an angry man. They  echo concerns that have been heard in  these columns before. At every level of  government there is the tendency of the  elected to forget the common earth from  which they sprung. There is the tendency  for pettily arrogant men to assume they  know better than the rest of their fellows  and to behave in secrecy and without  consultation. At every level of government there springs up a bureaucracy  ostensibly to serve the public but, with  what Shakespeare referred to as "the  insolence of office", who begin with a  petty arrogance of their own to torment  rather than to serve.  We applaud Mr. Baldwin's stated  concerns and wish him vigour in pursuing  his League to Restore Parliamentary  Control. In the business of government  corruption springs from arrogance and  secrecy as surely as night follows day.  Let our elected legislators be open and  honest, let the civil servants civilly serve,  let the people be informed. Amen, Mr.  Baldwin.  Horseshoe Bay. Sections of float lie against a gently sloping  beach and put into waters held by the photographer in timeless  tranquility. Harold and Theresa Haines, of Port Alberni, who  donated this photo to the Elphinstone Pioneer Museum, say  that it was taken many years ago. A cynic, then, who might  suggest that it portrays vessels and crews of B. C. Ferries,  whose terminal currently occupies this spot, waiting for passengers bound for Langdale and other sundry points a few years  into the future would of course be guilty of having the wildest  and most pessimistic dreams. Such a silly fantasy! L. R.  Peterson  Musings  John Burnside  Transfer  Sometimes it's hard to understand  what the various decision-making bodies  are guided by. Stich a ic&scT Is'Wuffely;  the case of the principal of Gibsons'  Elementary School. When Supt. John  Denley came to the district this was one  ofthe most troubled schools in the area.  Mrs. Colleen Elson was appointed interim principal' for a one-year period  until such time as the Pratt Road School  could be completed.  During Mrs. Elson's year the morale of  the school has become higher than at  any time in recent memory. Teachers,  students, and parents are unanimous  in their praise of the changes Mrs. Elson  has wrought in that school. And now  after a year which has been universally  acclaimed as highly successful and very  human she is to be moved to the smaller  school.  The reasons advanced are to do with  seniority in the district and one supposes  the question of paper qualifications may  be a factor. Her replacement is a proven  administrator of ability, Mr. Weldon Reid  of Sechelt Elementary. And yet one must  question the necessity of such a move.  Why, for heaven's sake, when one is  fortunate enough to find a person of Mrs.  Elson's obvious abilities who can turn a  troubled school into a happy one in just  one year, why, oh why can't she be left  alone to continue to do the splendid job  that she has been doing?  One wonders if Mrs. Elson were a  young male administrator at the end of  such a successful year if the transfer  would be made. Why, Mr. Denley, are  you tampering with this proven success  story? We know that a one-year tenure  were the conditions under which Mrs.  Elson became the Gibsons Elementary  Principal, but you know the mood and  atmosphere of that school before she  became principal and surely you must be  aware of the improvement. Couldn't  you just have left her to carry on?  .. .from the files of Coast News  5 YEARS AGO  Mayors of Gibsons and Sechelt were  defeated in their efforts to block the  passage of Area E (Gibsons rural) advisory planning committee report on the  latest Gibsons bypass route.

Miss Bee's opens up her gift shop  ;;: in Sechelt.  10 YEARS AGO  Detailed plans of the proposed Gibsons  Swimming Pool made the front page of  the Coast News. The proposed size of  the Centennial pool was 30 x 60 and  had 2 diving boards, concrete patio,  12 x 16 foot sundeck, heated changing  rooms, showers and toilet facilities.  Tyee Airways gets IWA backing and  approval to extend services to Class 3,  allowing flights from Sechelt and,Gibsons  direct to Vancouver. The IWA supported  Tyee in their brief stating the time it  took to get to' Vancouver from the remote  areas ofthe coast was too much to enable  a full weekend holiday.  15 YEARS AGO  Efforts in Sechelt to establish a Douk-  hobour prison camp were abandoned  when it was announced in Ottawa that  a camp would be set up in Agassiz.  Some current grocery prices: toilet  paper, 4 rolls 49$, canned cream corn,  4 for 49*.

Gibsons firemen push for a wider fire  area at the Gibsons council meeting. The  firemen felt that they could no longer  stand by and not answer fire calls outside  the fire district as they must do now due  to the municipality act which does not  allow taxpayers' money to be used outside the village.  25 YEARS AGO  A new 5 room school opened in Madeira Park with much fanfare and celebration. On hand was Rev. Alan Greene  of Columbia Coast Mission to open the  school and lead the invocation.  Selma Park Community Association  moves to build a large community hall  but this was vetoed in favour of a hall  in Sechelt which would be co-operatively  built by communities from Wilson Creek  to Halfmoon Bay.  30 YEARS AGO  Meat rationing for consumers ended  this week. Meatless days in restaurants  and hotels, Tuesdays and Fridays, remains in effect. Meat rationing was  first introduced in Canada late in. 1943  and suspended in March 1944. It was reintroduced March 1945 with the specific  purpose of reducing domestic consumption and thus making available larger  quantities of meat for shipment overseas.  Poaching is a word which in  North America has nothing but  negative connotations. It conjures up fishing by illegal methods or hunting out of season pr  over the limit or other forms of  anti-conservation nastiness.' -' It  had; a different flavour when-iff  was used when I was a boy in  Scotland.  To begin with one must under-.,  stand the inherent feudalism of  the U.K. It's difficult in a frontier  country like Canada, still expanding and being developed with  every man staking his claim to a  piece of land however modest,  to concieve that life in a long-  settled place is a different business. The land is all owned and  has been for centuries by those .  people who are fortunate enough  to have had successful robber  barons for ancestors during the  Middle Ages.   The British aristocracy are having a little trouble  these days supporting the lavish  life style to which they have been ...  accustomed    for     generations,  but when I was growing up in a  village in southern Scotland there  was still in the centre of the  village behind high stone walls  and beech woods an immense  sandstone castle of a place that  we called The Big House.    It  was covered with ivy and surrounded by gardens, lawns and  orchards   and   virtually   every .  village had one. Often they were  not lived in.  The owners preferring and being able to afford the  glitter of life in London to the  more humble virtues where they  derived much of their revenue.  All the farms were held by tenant  farmers and the rents paid to the -���.  Big House.     Sometimes there  would be no one in residence, at  all except for a couple of weeks  of grouse shooting on the moors  in August.  The salient factor here is that  they owned the land and everything on it.   If you had the impression that the ban on procuring food from the land went out .  with Robin Hood and the Sheriff  of Nottingham you are mistaken.  My  earliest years  were  spent  in a war-time and immediately  post-war Britain and it was a very  protein-scarce place indeed. . I  must be one of the few people  on the coast that has a sentimental regard for B. C. Ferry eggs -  not the taste nor the texture,  God knows; but for the look of  them because they remind me of  the   powdered   war-time   eggs.  The meat ration for a week could  be held in the palm of one hand.  We ate lots of cheese and potatoes.  Meanwhile the hills were alive  with rabbits and tiie waters with  trout but these were the preserve  ofthe absentee landlords and forbidden fruit to the peasants.  My very first fishing experience  ended in a trauma when, at the  age of about five, I was taken by  an uncle to fish for trout at a  small loch- which: was called the  \ GlenbuckDam., Wecaughtafew,  he perhaps four or five and I had  the exquisite thrill of feeling  something live on my line and  bringing it to shore perhaps once  or twice before the gamekeeper  came and we had to abandon  rods and fish and take to our  heels. The trout belonged to  someone who lived in London.  Poaching, then, was an honourable activity. It meant getting  the occasional rabbit or snow hare  into the pot and the occasional  fresh trout into the pan despite  gamekeepers and the law. The  methods of doing so were limited  only by human ingenuity, which  in times of trial can be very considerable indeed.  For the rabbits and the hares,  dogs were used. They were  trained to hunt the prey down and  to bring them back to their master. It was a matter of some pride  to have a dog which was perfectly  obedient and proficient. It was  also advisable to have a dog  which was deceptively quick, one  that didn't look as if it could catch  a bus but which could occasionally bring back the fleet and evasive  snow hare and catch a fleeing  rabbit nine times out of ten. It  was rare sport for generally you  could see the whole chase on the  bare Scottish hills, the rabbit  or hare had a fighting chance of  survival, and if caught was a  , welcome addition to the family  fare. When caught it was customary to tie the rabbit by its  feet using the dog's leash which  was carried only for that purpose,  then it was hung over the master's shoulder so that it lay under  his armpit, the loose tweed jacket  favoured by most was then put  on and in the event that the law  or the gamekeeper was met on  the way home it was just a man  and his dog returning from a  walk.  One of my uncles was returning  from a walk just at twilight and  had sent his dog up the hill after  a rabbit and then walked on. He  reached the crest of a slight incline in the road and looked back  and saw his dog loping up the  road with the rabbit-slung over  its shoulder. When he turned to  continue the walk the village  policeman had come round a  corner on his bicycle with the  lamp on and discovery seemed  inevitable with the consequent  fine. There was absolutely  nothing to be done. Just as the  policeman was coming abreast of  <fX Slings & Arrows  fr*George Matthews  him he glanced despairingly  back at the dog just in time to  see it slinking with the rabbit  into the ditch at the side of the  road where it remained undetected until the policeman had  cpasaM5d.77The:--i only .explanation v  tha^hec^ld dffer wai that the  dog had seen him conceal the  rabbit so many times that when it  saw the glint of the lamp of the  approcaching bicycle it immediately sought to hide the rabbit.  Deception was of the upmost  importance in the catching of  trout, too. Obviously if you are  not allowed to fish anywhere you  can't take to walking through the  country-side with a fishing rod so  the men became amazingly adept  at catching trout under rocks in  the streams with their hands.  It's called "guddling" in Scotland and, I believe, "tickling"  in rural England. One of the  family stories has it that my  grandfather had long been the  guddling. champion in the now-  vanished village of Glenbuck and  accepted a wager in the pub one  night that there was a village man  who was his master. The challenger put up for the wager was  my father, then in his teens, and  when the match was held there  was a new champion.  The methods used were not  exhaused by hunting rabbits  with dogs and fishing with the  bare hands. There were some  who preferred the stealthy work  with wire in the night, snaring  the rabbits, but whatever the  method used always there was  the law to be circumvented. Nobody wanted the rabbits except  the poor but only the rich had the  right to kill them. It reached  the height of absurdity in the mid-  fifties when the rabbits were so  over-running the country that a  dreadful disease called myxyma-  tosis was introduced which decimated them. They died slowly,  blind and hairless and with great  swollen heads, staggering in  agony. The rabbits most affected  were the vast majority who lived  underground, which is why,  through you can still see rabbits  in Britain, they mostly live above  ground now and the banks of rabbit warrens leading to underground rabbit cities which were  common when I was growing up  are gone now.  In a society which forbade  the needy to eat available and  unwanted meat, preferring to  keep the numbers down with  mass infection of a horrible  disease, then poaching becomes  an affirmation of human rights  rather than the exploitation of  helpless animals. I always  wanted to be a poacher when I  grew up.  The British Columbia Teachers' Federation has something  like 30,000 members. As I sit  writing this, 660 of those members sit in convention deliberating  over matters of mutual concern.  Four of those 660 are representing the 150 teachers employed  in the Sechelt School District.  The Teachers' Convention,  like all conventions, is a publicity  grabbing affair. Most of the  business discussed could be  dealt with at other levels of this  excrutiatingly democratic organization, but these three days provide an opportunity for teachers  to discuss, in view of the media,  issues which teachers would like  to make matters of public record.  The whole affair costs the Teachers' Federation about $100,000;  -Sechelt teachers.provide another  $750 to send their delegates.  What are the teachers' "concerns"?  According to the objectives of  their professional organization  they are supposed to be worried  about the welfare of their members and the "fostering and  promoting" of the quality of  education in the province, the  district, the school and the classroom.  What does the average teacher  talk about in the convention?  The average teacher is a female  in her 30's making a gross salary  of about 18,000 dollars per year.  (53% of teachers are women,  but the average income of women  in the profession is lower than  men although equal pay for equal  work is long established in education.) She talks about having  to repay her employers because  of anti inflation rulings. She  resents the exclusive use of the  pronoun "he" used in her professional publications. She talks  about how equal opportunity is  denied children because of sex,  race and socio-economic background. She tells the convention  how she thinks she is a better  judge of the needs of the kids  in her class then the Ministry  of Education although she will  concede the wisdom of public  control of education. She explains to her colleagues how important it is for her principal to  spend at least 20% of his or her  time teaching so he is aware of  the kinds of problems teachers  have to deal with. She expresses  her concern about the Federation  getting tangled up in the labour  movement, not because she  doesn't want to give up her brown  bag for a lunch bucket, but because she thinks she should  appear to be above the partisan  ship that an affiliation with labour  might imply.  She recognizes, when challenged, that schools are an instrument of social control and that  they have traditionally perpetuated   the   socio-economic   status  quo.   She firmly rejects however  the marxist overtones of such a  recognition and generally abhors  the radical rhetoric which sur-   ���������  rounds such debate.  She prefers  to look upon such discussion as   ~  the sociological facts of life rather   -;  than interpret them as a call to  the barricades for radical teacher  led revolution.  She doesn't like giving tests  to her kids before everybody has  had a chance to decide what it  is they are supposed to know.  She doesn't like to hear that  teachers are being hired' because'"���*  they are good ~ at teaching kids '^  how to pass tests.    '"     ��-���-������.-..  She also worries about Chilean  refugees, racism, natural justice   ���-  for all and a lot of other things  which, on the surface, appear to  be beyond her reference.   She is  probably   more   patient,   more    I  tolerant, more fair minded, more  concerned about her fellow man  than the average citizen. That of  course is as it should be since  she is charged with the respon-   -���  sibility of caring for our children.  She is, after all is said and  done, a pretty exceptional person.  She is not a little old lady with  blue hair and a mickey mouse  watch who enjoys pulling ears or  rapping knuckles nor is she a  chalk covered, absent minded  pedant wandering through hallways talking to herself, although  sometimes she is these things. -'  She's really not much different  than most people. As one of her "  colleagues has just finished  saying, "Teachers are an ac- '������  curate reflection of our society  and that is as it should be."  She has been sitting in this  room for two and a half days and  nights so far, moving, seconding,  debating, reconsidering and  voting. She does it because, she  thinks its important. She thinks  she can make a difference. She -  thinks someone will listen, take  her seriously and help her get on -  with what she's good at.  When the convention ends she  will go back to her classroom and  maybe never be heard of again.  She had one vote in 660 to make  her concerns known. She did all  this for herself, the children in  her class, her colleagues, parents  and everyone else who thinks that  the education of children makes  the world a better place.

LETTERS to the EDITOR  Coast News, April 5,1977.  Patrol  Editor:  After reading with my usual  enjoyment and interest Mr. Burn-  side's column about the lost  Dawson Patrol, I spring to the  defence of Inspector Fitzgerald,  about whom Mr. Burnside is  a bit scathing.  In 1910 when the tragic incident occurred, I was living with  my cousin Ex-Cpl. A. E, C. Green  near St. Paul-des-metis in Alberta. He had been in charge of  a detachment of the R.N.W.M.P.  at or near Dawson City in the late  90's, and had served under  Inspector Fitzgerald and with  Sam Carter, a guide.  He had a high opinion of Fitzgerald, but said that Carter was  the cocksure type who knew  everything and would never  admit he' didn't know the way.  He placed the blame on Carter.  Also I do enjoy Mr. Matthews's  columns especially the One about  "rugger", me being an ex-rugger  player and fan - the best of all  games - including hockey.  John S. Browning  Blunders  Editor:  Our Provincial government  seems to be going from blunder  to blunder in administering the  ferry system. Unfortunately it  is the people in the coastal regions that must suffer for these  blunders. Not content with  raising the fares almost three  times to what they were, thus  causing a drop in the number of  people using the ferries, they  attempted to, balance the books  by cutting-down crews. All this  in the, face of irate protests  from people who depend on using  these ferries for necessary trips  to the lower mainland. Remember the protests?! Marches in  Langdale and PoweU River, petitions to the government - all to  no avail! (or very little anyway)  Their latest move is a dilly!  They're,.asking the Federal  government to declare, the routes -  inland waters so that they can  further reduce the ratio of crewmen to passengers. This is a  stupid, unsafe act, especially in  the face of the government's  attempt to encourage more foot  passengers. Wouldn't this require mora crewmen rather than  less?  They further cut some of the  staff by introducing food , dispensers on some.of the runs.  How does a dispensing machine  show a passenger how to put on  a lifejacket or lower a lifeboat?  If the Federal government goes  along with the request for a reclassification then they will be  showing to all and sundry where  their priorities are as far as West  Coast Canadians are concerned.  Mind you, based on the way the  up-coast transportation has been  handled, we already know, don't  we?  Let's flood Jack Pearsall's  brand new Powell River office  with letters protesting this blatant  disregard for safety on our  ferries.  Frank B. Garden  Powell River-  Dogs  Editor:  Who owns these HUNGRY  DOGS? One is maybe 80 pounds  and light tan in colour, short  haired, the second is all black  and half the size, and a third,  reputed to be a large black lab  I have not seen, though I hear he  is also frequently on our 9 acres  at Geddes Road on the Lower  Roberts Creek Road.  If they feel like a big snack  at 3 or 4 in the morning, they  come around trying to break into  a shed where I used to keep a  bucket of moist chicken food  ready for the morning: a third of  a bucket is the size of meal they  prefer. Rooting in the garbage  is another favorite pastime, and  rubbing their backs against our  shingles is not the way I like to  be woken up at that unearthly  hour!  They also visit during the day,  but never stay long enough to  shake a paw once they see me.  Well owners, who ever you are,  feed your hungry dogs and keep  them home: heaven knows  what their next meal here might  be. ��� 7   '..' ���  Jean Sheridan  5 Old Peach Rd.

We also have some  little property in the Sunshine  > Coast, hence our desire to keep  up to date on what's going on  in that region.  We are of Greek origin, as our  name implies but we have lived  in the Orient for over 30 years.  We are delighted therefore to  be quasi represented as far away  as the Sunshine.

More dogs  Editor:  I refer to the recent comment  in the paper re: dogs being controlled in Gibsons and Sechelt  but not in the surrounding areas.  It was mentioned that there was  not sufficient interest in these  outlying areas.  .  In regard to this I would suggest that someone involved in  the control go around the Gower  Point areas and the Pratt Road  area and see if they can drive at  the posted speeds without running over dogs.  We-in the Gower Point area  are continually pestered with  dogs running loose, continually  barking at each other, messing  up the neighbors gardens, etc.  and generally making a nuisance  of themselves.  Last night I went out after  dark and was met by two of the  neighbors dogs growling and  standing their ground in my own  property. When it comes to this  through the lack of responsibility  of the owners, then I think it  about time some action was  taken and would hope as a start  that the surrounding areas be included in the control.  I would also suggest that the  reason for the lack of apparent  interest is that the irresponsible  ones whose dogs are causing  trouble obviously are not interes-  The Lions 400 Club Draw was  won this week by Janet McDonald  of Gibsons.

R. W. Vernon  RR#1, Gower Pt.Rd.  Gibsons  Still more  Editor:  There appears to be a general  idea that there is not much one  can do about vicious dogs. Well  one can do something about them  and should.  I was bitten by a dog whilst  on legitimate business on March  16th and I was mad. I was even  angrier on discovering that this  particular dog had bitten others  and in fact had a reputation as  a biter. Yet not one of the victims  had. done a thing about it, in  spite of the numerous children  in the vicinity where the dog  lives.  I rang up the owners of the dog  and then rang up the R.C.M.P.  and gave them full particulars.  Later I went to see them personally to find out exactly what one  should do when bitten by a dog.  If one is bitten whilst on private  property there is not a single  thing the police can do about it.  If sheep or chickens for instance  are involved then the police  cain act according to the "Domestic Animals Act", and it is this  act with which the police have to  work. It is still a good idea to  notify the police because then the  dog and it's owners have, so to  speak, a police record. Further  the police can give advice as to  what the legal options are.

Because when your insulation  meets modem, req^ements, you, save  energy Aitd daring these times of* -  increased concern about  energy shortages, if s more important  than ever that we all learn to use our  energy resources wisely.  And, closer to home,, when you  save energy ��� you save money.  While actual savings vary with individual  circumstances, we know that when home  insulation meets modern standards, fuel  bills don't mount up as quickly.  And with the prospect for higher  prices for energy, fuel and even insulation  material in the future, an investment in  proper insulation for your home today is  a good hedge against inflation tomorrow.  Last, but hardly least, a well-  insulated home is simply a more comfortable place to live. All year long. i^!��13i|li|  Its cozier in the winter, and ���vl<sfi^#  cooler in the summer  RCHYDRO  THE FINANCING:  From April 1, to Sept. 30, 1977, B.C. Hydro  will provide up to $500.00 to up-grade the  irisujatipn, in your home. As long as your home  hasvalready been built. Our Energy Savings^  and Finance Plan does not apply to homes  currently under construction.  The interest rate is only 10%,  repayable over 24 months with your regular  utility bills.  To qualify, you must:  ��� have a residential electric and/or gas  account with Hydro.  ��� own your own home, or be in the process  of purchasing it through a mortgage or  agreement for sale,  have a satisfactory credit rating.  Major insulation retailers and contractors  are participating in our Energy Savings and  Finance Plan to ensure you of a proper  job. Or, if you're handy, you can do the work  yourself. In either case, you must agree to  $gM$m-:       bring insulation up to the recommended  "R" values. For example, an  insulation value of at  least R28 for ceilings,  ll^fc,.. and R12 for walls.  Wl^&$:"?*$W$$!X:  All insulation must be recognized as standard insulation -  v;u material. And all "do-it-yourselfers" must purchase enough insulation  to achieve the required R value for their particular home. For complete details  on the B.C.

Beginning in May, B. C. Hydro  will once more. be imposing an  unfair increase on the residential  consumer. These increases,  ranging from 15-20%, mark the  fourth such hike in less than two  years.  The B. C. Hydro rate structure  is loaded against the small consumer, who pays terribly high  prices for electricity and gas,  while the industrial consumer  buys these products at far cheaper bulk rates.  Film course offered  DON LOCKSTEAD  Drop in and meet your  M.L.A.  Don Lockstead will be  at the following places to  discuss your problems or  just chat:  April 13 - Pender Harbour  Realty Ltd., 1-5 p.m.  April 14 - Sechelt Munici  pal Hall, 1-5 p.m.  April 15 - Gibsons Municipal Hall, 1-5 p.m.  For Information Call:  886-7829  The N.D.P. government started  to correct this situation when it  increased the industrial and bulk  rate by 70%. Many of the contracts affected by this increase,  however, required a two year  notice of increased rates. As a  result, these rates are only now  coming into effect.  Clearly, we must deal with the  major consumers who are relatively few but who take up 40 percent of the current electrical  production. While the industrial  and bulk consumers use about  half of the total energy, they  produce only about 28 percent of  the revenue. It is quite'ironic  that these very healthy industries, who are quite able to pay  their bills, should pay less'than  half what the average homeowner  pays.  The Social Credit government  is showing little concern about  this grave injustice. Energy  Minister Jack Davis has said that  the government, would not intervene against the rate increase.  It is also apparent that there  is a split within the cabinet over  control of Hydro. Premier Bennett has said that he would support the establishment of a public  utilities commission to oversee  rate increases. Davis, on the  other hand, has said that he feels  it would be "ridiculous" to set  up "another public body to review what a public body is  doing".  While the cabinet ministers  squabble, the B. C. consumer  gets squeezed. This issue requires leadership. I, for one, do  not see it arising from within the  present government.  <�����*"*     holiday/  THE ONLY AUTHORIZED  AIRLINE TICKET  AGENT Representing: CPAir  Western Airlines  L<  uniTED AiRLines  AIR CANADA��  Ticketing  While  You  Wait      (and all USA & Canadian Airlines)  COMPLETE TRAVEt AGENCY SERVICES  FULLY EXPERIENCED AGENTS  1212 Cowrie Street  SECHELT  (between Shell Service  and the Chain Saw Centre)  ���     Call   \^  885-3265 ^^  Tuesday thru Saturday  'I  I  I  I  I  I  I  I  I  I  I  I  I  I  I  !���  I  I  I  I  I  I  A comprehensive survey ofthe  slapsticks, the psycho dramas,  the silent film, and the musicals  of the cinema's golden age.

They  had been invited' by the club  to give brief talks about their  candidacy, and to participate  in the question and answer  period that followed.  The first to speak.Erik Bryn-  jolfsson approached the topic  from the point of view of the  economy, stressing the "fact  that the NDP .must develop  an alternate economic system  to replace the present one.  He pointed out that industrial  expansion, and the proliferation  of nuclear devices had both  gone beyond our control, and  that the party must plan to  slow these down.     He felt the  ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^  NDP should concentrate on \  their role as an independent'.  third party, reminding voters',  that in a minority government Z  a third party is a reasonable ~  alternative. X  Frank Gardner, a mill worker, <j  from Powell River spoke next,.  emphasizing that the NDP  had traditionally been a working  man's party. He felt that working  through the unions was the  way^ to power. iV "Sijrty^ years  "'ago*' most, CCF feaders and  Union leaders were walking  down the same path. Today  this is not the case," he said.  By listening to the workers  of the province, and through  better management, he envisioned a more equitable society,  one without second-class citizens,  or have-not provinces.  WESTERN CANADA'S  CLEANEST AND BRIGHTEST  MIDWAY  APRIL 11 & 12  DOUGALPARK  I've served my apprenticeship'     said    Harry    Olaussen,  former  Member of Parliament  for  this   riding.      Adding   that  he'd  derived great  satisfaction  from doing his job, he sought  the candidacy on an alliterative  platform of: "Pollution, Production, and Population".    Canada  needs  a  positive   program  for  the,problem of pollution.   As for  'production *,   he   cited   foreign  ownership     of     industry     and  dwindling   resources   as   areas  which   must   be   looked   into.  About the  'population' he said  that the issues of immigration  Indian   rights   and   women's  rights were all important.    He  felt   the   party   should    strive  to give all Canadians. an equal  opportunity for social justice.  Referring to the present provincial government as a group of  "...car    salesmen    and    carrot  juice   freaks,"   Ray   Skelly   of  Courtenay spoke next.   Mention-,  ing      Canadian      sovereignty,  he  told  how  outside   interests'  presently   control   our   destiny.  "We   sold   our   country   short  for a short-term gain" he said,  and intimated that future generations would have to pay the  ultimate bill.   He felt the party  should work  for world   peace,  limiting,  unreasonable   growth,  and   Canadian   economic   independence.  Ferry worker Richard von  Fuchs spoke last, saying that  there were two kinds of people -  the exploiters and the exploited.  In describing the present economic system he felt that local  control of resources should  take place, enabling individual  communities to decide their  own economic fate. He said  the NDP must present a clear  platforrn in the next election.  "Are we Liberals in a hurry?";  he asked. The party must present a well-defined policy, he  said. "We favour the exploited  versus the exploiters."  It was learned in the question  and answer period that followed  that the new boundaries of the  Coast-Chilcotin riding would  become official June' eleventh,  were an election not called before that time. # CBC Radio  Coast News, April 5,1977.  THE OMENS AT MAIDENHEAD  While my adult life has been  relatively free, from incidents that  could in any way be called supernatural, my early childhood was  quite another matter. England  has never taken a back-seat when  it comes to haunted houses and  assorted psychic-phenomena.  It's towns and villages abound  with buildings of uncanny repute  where manifestations of one sort  or another are rumoured to occur.  A good percentage of these cases  can be safely ascribed to overactive inaginations, inebriation  and - outright lying. But there  are an equal number of well-  documented .incidents that defy  any sort of rational or scientific  explanation. I have always maintained an open mind in such matters for the first house of my  memory was a very strange house  indeed.  In the one or two photographs  that still exist of the place, it  looks innocent enough - a twin-  gabled, two-story, Tudor-style  building with large, latticed windows, set in a pleasant lawn-  garden against a backdrop of  poplar trees. My parents had  discovered the house on an obscure street in Maidenhead, (a  suburb of London) and fallen in  love with it's quaint charm. It  was situated in a low-lying area,  often subjected to flooding when  the river rose and as a result,  many of the other houses in the  neighbourhood were vacant. My  earliest recollections of the place  are less-than-vague for I was very  young but as time progresses  through the two years we lived  there, the images grow clearer.  It soon became apparent to  my mother that there was something odd - perhaps even sinister -  in the background of the house.  It had sat vacant for some years  prior to our arrival. Before that  there had been a fire and the .  building was partially restored.  She was able to learn few details  about the fire - the tradesmen  she asked were evasive about it -  but she surmised that there had  been some loss of life.  Twas about four when I began  to see the apparitions. They all  seemed to center around the upstairs room where I slept. There  were three of them: a clown, an  elderly woman in grey and a large  black dog. Of the three, I only  remember the clown with any  vestige of clarity. I think he  appeared more  often than  the  owned such a dog but my mother  kept no animals beyond a single  dyspeptic and not overly-friendly  cat.  There was nothing misty or  translucent about any of these  visitants - if such- they were.  They seemed quite solid and  three-dimensional and the lady  twice appeared to me in broad  others and seemed, despite his  gay, yellow costume and painted,  scarlet smile, much the most  malevolent. He generally. materialized in the bathroom doorway  directly across the hall from my  bedroom. Sometimes -he was  swinging from the top of the door-  sill and even this playful activity  held menace. I suppose what  frightened me, even at that tender age, was the fact that I saw  him at all.  The other phantoms, hallucinations or whatever they may  have been, revealed themselves  tome less-frequently and never  provoked quite the same sense  of forboding. The grey lady, I  saw on several occasions, emerge  from my room and start down the  staircase. She moved very deliberately and her plain, lined  face wore a look, of intense sadness. The black dog, I sometimes  saw lying on my bed when I  entered the bedroom. Such a  mundane sight would scarcely  be cause for comment had wc  daylight. But by the time I  called my mother to come and  look, they were always gone.  Since I was literally too young to  lie, she had no reason to disbelieve me and thinks to this day,  that they had some connection  with the fire.  . My spirit-sightings were not  the only curious events that took  place in and around that unquiet  house. My mother, while fanning  the ill-drawing fireplace one day,  inadvertently set her dress alight.  Only the actions of the quickwitted maid who rolled her in a  rug, extinguished the flames,  saved her from serious burns and  perhaps the house from a second  gutting. On another occasion,  I went missing and was found up-  sidedown in a full rain-barrel  with only my feet protruding.  Had I not been rescued by. the  gardner, I would have most-  certainly drowned. I have no  direct memory of this event nor  any idea of how I came to be in  such a predicament. In any case,  it left me with a severe case of  aquaphobia that kept me from  swimming for years. '  My father at this time, was  testing planes for the Fairey  Aviation Company. His work  frequently took him to Belgium  and he was away much of the  time. Early in 1935, he came  home for a rest. He had not been  feeling well for some weeks and  had experienced a couple of brief  blackouts while driving his car.  An important air show was  coming up for the benefit of the  King of Belgium, in which my  father was expected to participate. Twice he begged-off for  health reasons but the third time,  he reluctantly agreed to go. The  night before his. departure, he  shook my mother awake. He was  in a state of visible alarm. "I  heard the most terrible screaming," he said. "It was like the  howling of a banshee!"  Of course, my father never returned alive from this ill-fated  air show. He apparently suffered  a blackout while pulling out of  a power-dive and crashed to his  death before the gathering of  soon-to-be-exiled royalty. My  mother cried for hours when the  grim phone-call came. I' didn't  realize exactly what had happened but I knew it was something earth-shaking and irreversible. When her grief eventually  subsided, my mother would recall other portents that had occurred in the final week of Stephen's life - a robin entering the  house and perching on the bust  of a Belgian miner that my father  had prized - a bat in the drawing-  room - a pear-tree blooming  twice. But for. the moment, she  could think of nothing except the  dreadful loss that had widowed  her at thirty-two. That evening,  her parents drove down from  Oxfordshire and took us away to  live with them there.. The ghosts  and omens of that peculiar house  in Maidenhead were left behind  us forever and they soon drifted  into memory as our lives entered  a quite-different phase.  Books with  John  Faustmann  The Crudest Month  Ernest Buckler  McClelland & Stewart  298 pp.  Ernest Buckler  The Crudest Month  This is one of those gritty  Canadian novels where the sophisticated southern types come up  to a secluded house in the bush  somewhere.' There, surrounded  by the nasty primitive forces of  trees and other unusual'things,  the souls of the sophisticated  types are stripped bare, usually  in the first few chapters. By the  end of, the book no one likes  anybody else, there has been a  murder, or a disaster, and everyone goes away again.  . If too many books of this type  continue to be written, Canadian  literature may well have to reserve a particular genre for them.  They might be called "Novels of  the Tourist Season", and publishers could issue discarded gum  wrappers to be used as book  marks with them. Used as a stock  device, beginning writers in the  workshops of the universities  could be handed out mimeographed plot outlines:  1. Select.come mouthy Americans from an east coast metropolis.  2. Construct a quaint, cabin in  the woods.  3. Place the tourists in it, along  with some earthy locals for  leavening.  4. Write three hundred pages.  Try hot to be dull.  The Crudest Month, which  manages to outdo even Atwood's  Surfacing in its blandness and.  insipidity, has been published  again this year in the New Canadian Library edition. I found the  book very tiring. Sitting in a room  with its characters seemed to be.  a continuous unpleasant surprise,  one which grew and grew until  finally, gratefully, the book  ended;  Having already hinted at the  plot, I hesitate to introduce you  to the characters. Considering  them at any length is much the  same as staring into a greasy  sink full of dirty dishes. They  have to be washed, but which do  you pull out first? Let's start  with that plate with the bits of  egg on it, the not-so-young-any-  more couple from Conneticut.  Rex, the twitching, limping,  bundle of failed masculinity is  accompanied by his emotional  stockbroker wife. Sheila, and his  high-powered hunting rifle.  Sheila, sensing Rex's decline,  takes up with Bruce, the self-  pitying hometown boy. Bruce  digs in the garden and anguishes  over the loss of his Beatrix Potter  family (Molly and Peter), who  fell out the door of their pickup  truck and were killed.  That messy glass with the lipstick stains around the edge is  Kate, the thirty-nine year old  professor's daughter. The glass'  with all the wobbly fingerprints  on it is Morse, the novelist.  These two are destined to fall in  love by a trout stream later on,  but we'll return to them after we  get to the silverware at the bottom of the sink. The bent but  reliable spoon is Letty, the housekeeper. The dull knife is Paul,'  the hero of the piece.  All right.   I have to be brief.  Kate is desperate. Her father had  a stroke and came into the kitchen  one day saying the word 'orange'  over and over again.   Kate wants  to be normal  and get married  befpre it's Too Late.   Morse has  been  married three times,  but  Kate rings his matrimonial telephone   Gong  distance,   collect),  and they ride off together through  a forest fire.    Sheila and Bruce  discover  each  other  and   start  getting  it  on  out back  in  the  field.    Ah, the love of a good  woman... Morse, after one afternoon with Kate, overcomes his  writer's block and starts another  novel.  Bruce, after dallying with  Sheila, decides he will be a doctor  after all.   Paul, the taciturn hub  ofthe whole scene, finally forgets  his heart condition and goes to .  bed with the housekeeper.    Rex  manages to shoot himself (not  fatally,  unfortunately) and  also  start the forest fire.   In the end  everyone is paired off, the old  homestead   is   saved  from   the  ravaging flames, and the characters,   and the   reader,   stumble  gratefully away.  Mr. Buckler, one suspects,  intended this to be an in-depth  study of human character, framed  by the stark confines of rural  Nova Scotia. At times, he almost  achieves a certain depth, but it  is inevitably lost in the maze of  his painfully self-conscious prose.  The author seems to be continually searching for just one more  otiose verb with which he might  brighten these pages and, unfortunately, he. always seems to  find them.    Coupled with this,  his sentence's wobble and creak  along, shredding themselves of  . meaning along the way, arriving  at nowhere, and having slept  throughout the. journeyr;. The  language actually gets in the way  of the story. Any feelings we  have for the characters, other  than a vague loathing, is discouraged by the trip we must  take to get to them.  I wish I could say something  positive about this book, but all  I can come up with is this: reading  it, you'll be glad you're not one  of the characters in it. Things  could be worse. This book will  help you imagine how.  by Maryanne West  Playhouse, Thursdays 8:04  p.m., begins a new series of  dramas by George Ryga commissioned by the CBC.

Sellers will be seen as the  bumbling, ineffectual Inspector  Clouseau in the fourth of the  Pink Panther series of films  which have featured this comic  character. This one is called  The Pink Panther Strikes Again  and will appear at the Twilight  from Wednesday, April 6th to  Saturday, April 9th. Producer- .  director of the series, Blake  Edwards has assembled many  of the same creative artists that  he employed in previous Pink  Panther adventures. A newcomer to the series, however, is  the young British actress Lesley-  Ami Down who has been playing  the role of Georgina in the popular T.V. series "Upstairs Downstairs".  Nicholson appears from Sunday, April 10th, to Tuesday,  April 12th, in the long-awaited  film version of Ken Kesey's  first novel One Flew Over the  Cuckoo's Nest. The film is  billed as a tragi-comedy about a  free-spirited rogue who takes  over the ward of a mental hospital  by a combination of gall and ingenuity. Published in 1962,  Kesey's book anticipated not only  the rebellion of that decade but  also the repression that followed  it in the 70's.     ?��iv '���Hi  4P-" f<  THE  FiHK PANTHER  STAKES AGAIN'  PANAVISION  COLOR by Deluxe   United Artists  SPr  Wed., Thurs., Fri., Sat.

Their  lengths are anywhere from one  and a quarter inches up to five  inches. Their colours, are as  varied as the rainbow.  I will start with the easiest to  breed which I find to be the blue  gourami.  . This fish has a sky blue background with a black mottling from  the anus to the tail.

The best technique I have  found for breeding these five  inch gourami's is to fill a ten  gallon aquarium with six inches  of water, have the heat at 80  degrees F, and have lots of surface plants, water sprite or riccia  will do. Let the aquarium set  for a day and put in the female.  Be sure the female is ripe with  eggs as the male will harrass the  female to death if she is not  ready. Place the male in the tank  with the female, he will soon start  building a bubble nest which will  probably be loose and patchy.  He will begin chasing the female  and will tear her fins and scales  until she will go under the bubble  nest. When this is accomplished,  the female will push lightly  against the male's side, he will  then clasp or bend his body  around hers, they then roll upside down, each expelling their  sexual products. They will  continue this until all the eggs  have been expelled. The gourami  eggs in almost all cases float so  if you wish to catch the female  and remove her you will not'  damage the nest too badly.' Leave  the male in the tank for about a  week. He will guard the nest  and will also catch any babies  falling from the nest and will  spit them back to the surface.  After a week he should be moved.  The mortality rate for the babies  will be high if they are not moved  into at least a thirty gallon tank  and fed on the finest offish foods.  All gourami's can be bred in  this fashion. These include the  pearl, giant, honeycomb, dwarf,  and pygmy gourami's, to name a  few, and also the paradise fish  The Siamese fighting fish is bred  in much the same fashion but  because the eggs are _ heavier  than water, care must be used  when removing the female, and  she must be removed or the male  will kill her, and the male must  be left in the aquarium to maintain the nest and keep the eggs  in it.  All the smaller gourami's and  the fighting fish are hard to breed  successfully because the babies  are so small. This creates problems in that you must have sufficient quantities of microscopic  creatures, called infusoria, on  hand to feed the babies throughput the day. Green water is good  because it usually contains  enough rotifers and infusoria  that the baby fish will get along  quite well with a good feeding  of this several times daily. For  the beginner I would suggest  the bigger gourami's and the  paradise fish as these fish breed  readily in captivity. I have had  both the blue gourami's and the  paradise fishes breed in my community aquarium and have raised  a few young on one gallon jars  placed in the aquarium and my  three gallon and five gallon  aquariums. This retards their  growth rate so I would suggest  bigger accommodations. Also  after the fish have mated add  some fungus stop to the water to  prevent egg fungus which is  quite prevalent in this area.  54 Cowrie St.  Sechelt  Open 9:30 - 5:30  EASTER IS SPECIAL  SO ARE FLOWERS  Come and see  our fine selection of Flowering  Plants and Fresh Flowers for Easter.  ftnUngU  Friday till 9:00  '.���t*.*''E"��������.?'. .. .     .-.

My reason for saying this  is that I have been under the  weather for the past few days,  and really don't know what has  been going on, but at least I  can fill you in on some of the  happenings. Last Friday night  was "Fun Night" but only 14  showed up, but we all had a good  time that is except my cribbage  partner and me, whose name I  will not divulge in case he becomes embarrased. We got beat  5 games out of 6 which is a pretty  poor record in my estimation.  Our opposition was George and  Ada Elander so if you want real  opposition in a game of cribbage  these are the people to meet.  Fun Night is open to all senior  citizens in the village and we  would like to see more coming  out. Admission is free, all we  ask is that you bring along a few  sandwiches or a small cake or  cookies. Tea and coffee are  served free and I think that once  you have been to a Fun Night  you will come back as there is  practically everything going on  in the way of light recreation  and dancing. It starts at 8:00  p.m. and is over about 11:00,  ' it is not a long evening and I am  sure you will thoroughly enjoy  yourselves.  Sorry I can't make any report  on the carpet bowling of our own  branch last Wednesday as I  was in bed all day, but I was over  at the hall this morning to get  things ready for tonight's Bingo  and I wish to thank all those  that set up the hall for the bingo  on the wonderful job they did.  That is what I call co-operation  in the fullest sense of the word.  With all this beautiful weather  going around my hands and feet  are getting itchy to get in the garden but my stomach says "no"  in no uncertain terms so I guess  I will have to go and get that  check-up and find out what is  wrong so that I can get back into  the swim of things again. Glad  to say I am feeling better but  first let me apologise for not  writing the column for the last  edition, but I was unable to do  it as I was feeling very rough.  My humble apologies to all you  good folks. I hope it won't happen again.  ,.,.. Over ..at. 1,the,.i!i.carpiet?. bowling  today the members were telling  me how much they missed the  column. In fact, our treasurer  Irene Bushfield said she thought  she was reading the wrong paper.  It really shows that people are  interested in what is going on  and I really appreciate their  comments.  Had a card from Dick and Eva  Oliver and Ed and Molly Connor  who are vacationing in Hawaii  They are having a wonderful  time over there and I fully believe  them because when we were  there 3 years ago we had a fabulous time. Hawaii is all they say  it is and more. It is absolutely  beautiful; the people are really  easy to get along with and will  help you any way they can.  I guess I am like the rest of  you, I have finally got started on  my gardening and what a chore it  is as I have neglected our place  for the past three years and it is  quite a job catching up on it,  but at least I have made a start.  I hope I will be able, the good  Lord willing, to keep on and get it  back into shape again.  Well that is enough about me,  now how about you? All you  lucky folks going down to Reno on  April 2nd, I hope you all have a  wonderful time and work the  arms off those (one armed bandits) slot machines they have  down there. If you come back  with lots of loot well and good,  but the main thing is come back.  Have a good time and we will see  what we can accomplish during  the. summer for day trips, and a  trip down to Frank Bakers place'  in West Vancouver. I think that  is a trip worth making and doesn't  cost too much so we will get  working on that as soon as the  whole gang gets back home  again. *  Our next general meeting on  Monday, April 4th is liable to be  very small what with all the members being on vacation, but we  will carry on just the same and  maybe you will have some new  ideas when you get back that  we can work on.  Don't forget Jim and Elisabeth  Derby's Golden Wedding Anniversary on April 8th. It is to be  held in the Senior Citizen's Hall  in Sechelt between 6:30 and 8:00  p.m. So lets get a group together  and go up and visit with Jim and  Elisabeth. They are a wonderful  couple and really deserve to be  recognized as they are real  workers for Branch #69, S.C.A.  They are two people who don't  believe in growing old and have  really been wonderful to us anytime we have-had the good fortune to be invited up to Sechelt.   '  I was quite surprised at the  turnout for bur bingo last night,  with the Big Bingo in Sechelt  going at the same time it was  really fantastic the way the people  attended and I sincerely thank  them for coming. I hope the Lions  Bingo at Sechelt was a great  success as they are a real good  bunch of community * minded  people who do a fantastic job  for everybody and their efforts  are certainly well worth rewarding. I know if it had not been for  the Gibsons Lions we would not  by any means be in the position  we are today, so my heartfelt  thanks to all these fine people  for the work they are doing.  Thanks also to Ken Stewart for  his wonderful help to us at our  bingo nights. Ken is a wonderful person and is always? willing  : to give a helping hand.- ���^v.'fi^r.o^  Well, this is April' Fool's Day  and I am going to fool you all,  by getting this column in on time.

By Ed]  Early in the 1976-77 Commercial Hockey season confidence  was not in abundance within  the ranks.of the Wakefield Inn  Hockey Club. It was mentioned  to Jim Gray, this past season's  C.H.L. scoring king, that his  'team appeared destined to run  rampant over the opposition, but  Gray remembered the first two  C.H.L. seasons both of which  went to Roberts Creek, although  Wakefield had formidable talent.  vSomething must be said: of the  coaching the-teamiifeceived .this  yeitffronfBilL Raymond. He instilled the desire, discipline and  organization needed to mold this  'very youthful club into a confident  systematic team. Crisp passing  along with' solid checking was  emphasized. , Teamwork and  spirit followed naturally. The net  ' result  'was  Wakefield   winning  ' both the regular season championships and playoff championship.  The 3rd and final playoff game  between Wakefield and Roberts  Creek   began   with   the   Creek  - going into a quick 2-0 lead in the  first period.   In the last minute  of that frame Wakefield narrowed  the margin to one goal, but more  than that it indicated the beginning of the end for Roberts Creek.  As is so often the case in this  game of slashing blades, that  goal in the dying seconds of the  first period inspired the young  Wakefield skaters so that they  held Roberts Creek scoreless  while netting three tallies themselves to leave the ice after two  periods of play leading 4-2. Final  score:  Wakefield 6t Roberts Creek 3.  The culmination of hard work  has given Wakefield the Commercial Hockey League crown.  ,Wearitwell!   .' -'"���''-���^  CLOVERDALE  Paint it* Paper  We. reserve' the right to limit  quantities.

T minus 30  minutes and counting. Burnside  has once again caught me twixt  hither and yon, and so I sit here  dedicatedly in limbo and attempt  to once again avert journalistic  disaster and present this drivel  in time to see it published.  Madness you say? But of  course it is dear people, best of  all is the triweekly will he or  won't he be in the editorial  chambers of the Coast News.  This time he will.  So...about a week ago on a  dark and stormy, windblown  night we were, Karen and I,  making the epic voyage from Vancouver to the heart of Beautiful  Downtown Gibsons. In the final  stages of this particular odyssey,  we found ourselves huddled in  the waiting room at Langdale  terminal with several other weary  travellers anxiously attending the  arrival of our taxi. As I said, it  was a dark, stormy night, getting  on towards the witching hour,  and we were gleefully entertaining each other with ghostly  ' stories when, without any warning whatsoever the door flew  open with a thunderous crash  and in stalked an incredible  sight. Huge it was and fearfully  coloured; a shock of blondish  hair streaming down its face and  -falling in tangles on the shoulders  of, you guessed it folks, a B. C.  Ferries jacket. Without a word  this apparition ' trudged past  into the ladies rest room screaming "male cleaner!" at the top  of its lungs, rummaged around  four four or five minutes and departed with a green plastic bag  over its shoulder. In astonishment one of our fellow travellers  turned to me and- said, "You  know, when they finally get  around to creating workers in a  laboratory, I bet the first thing  they clone is deck hands for B. C.  Ferries."  One can't help but wonder.  ��2sUij��;  R. Estabrook of Box 885, Sechelt, won this draw for $100.  The draw was held on behalf of the Sunshine Coast  Navy League.

The method was the Canada  Home Fitness Step Test. This  simple way of testing one's heart  can be done anywhere and (as  seen on the testing weekend)  a large number of people in a  relatively short amount of time  can be tested. ���  The Fitness Service has decided to continue offering testing  to peninsula residents. Pender  Harbour will be holding another  all day testing station in the near  future. Call Robi Peters at 883-  9923 if you are interested in  helping, or in being tested.  , ���-. ��� .loch/  fethefistehycrf  tfwrcsUiyour  .

We are doing  this to supplement our revenue  so that the recycling service  won't need to be so heavily subsidized. So far all we have to  offer is a lot of funky odds and  ends, a few chairs, a few mattresses and beds. These things have  kindly been donated to the cause  by persistent recyclers and are  greatly appreciated. So, if you're  moving or just want to get rid  of some furniture and can't sell  it, give us a call at 885-3811.  We also have lots of gallon  jugs (at 25* each) for all you wine-  makers. Need egg cartons?  We'll give you a lot for a dollar.  We'll even give you a lot for 25*.  If you need jars for canning, drop  by and we can work out a deal.  We save the more interesting  bodes and magazines that come  our way too.    Of particular in  terest right now are the Life  Magazine issues around Kennedy's assassination - including  the assassination issue. These  are getting rare and will go to the  highest bidder.  Contributing saleable items to  the recycling depot is one of the  ways people in the community  can indicate their support for a  permanent recycling centre on  the coast. We cannot go on forever being subsidized by the  federal government, although we  will be good for another ten  months if we get the Canada  Works grant we have applied  for. But during that time we will  have to increase revenue to the  point where minimum local and  provincial funding plus our own  revenue will be enough. All the  signs are encouraging, although  our future totally depends on that  federal grant. If we don't get  it, Peninsula Recycling will cease  to exist. I know this is a familiar,  tiresome story, but it is the reality  we have to live with. We should  know within the next few weeks,  so wish us luck if vou will.  ���-..��� A. regular testing station will  be set up in Sechelt at the mental  health centre office. Alice McSweeney has been kind enough  to offer the board room during the  lunch hour for the testing and  counselling.  Starting in April every Tuesday and Thursday one can be  tested between the hour of 12  noon and 1 o'clock. This can be  done on your lunch hour and it  will only take IS minutes.  It should be stressed here that  the step test is very elementary  (yet accurate) and not a complicated set of laboratory tests. The  procedure is simply walking up  and down two steps for 3 minutes.  The pulse is taken to determine  the amount of work being done  by the heart while you go up and  down the stairs.  This is done to  a musical beat. After' 'three  minutes' the pulse is" takeh = to  determine the amount of work put  on the heart. The Canadian  heart is suffering greatly from our  rich foods and sedentary life  style. However many people1 are  unaware of their present physical  condition. A great many heart  attacks can be prevented. Give  yourself 15 minutes to find out  where you stand on the fitness  scale. Come into the office and  be tested. You've got nothing to  lose.  We would like to use this  column as a way of thanking  Hayden Killam of Sechelt Building Supplies for donating the  materials to build the testing  steps. Also to all the volunteers  who gave of their time, many  thanks.  Happy Horizons m-*-**,.

As a token of our appreciation  for his time and efforts in providing enjoyment to so many of  our members, our caller, Mr.  Jack Whittaker was presented  with a gift from the association.  We all enjoy the lively music  whether we dance or not, and will  be looking for some of the same  when we resume activities next  fall.  While those in "sick bay" are  slowly returning, it was a shock  to learn that Jack James had  landed in hospital. Surely this  has broken a perfect attendance  record, and we are missing him  very much on the bowling alley.  We send our "Get WeU Soon"  wishes to you Jack, and hope  you're home by this time.  The booklet "The Frank Slide  Story" was borrowed from our  library some time ago and has  not yet been returned. Will all  members check their bookshelves  and return outstanding books so  that others may enjoy them too.  The recent "Arts and Crafts"  display revealed an amazing  diversity of talent among our  members whose skill could be  shared by others in the community with similar interests.' Let  us think about this during the  summer months and see what  response we get in the fall.  There's painting, quilting, ceramics and music.

Outboard Motors  SPECIAL:   $750.00  ���* McLsods mSecheh.  885-2171  10  by Joan B. Rigby  Fifteen members of the Coordinating council of the six  auxiliaries to St. Mary's Hospital  met in the board room of the hospital at 1:30 p.m. Tuesday,  March 29th. Miss Chris Ward  chaired a profitable meeting. The  hospital administrator, Mr. Nick  Vecurevich expressed appreciation of funds made available by  the auxiliaries for hospital equipment. Auxilians are involved  because they know the worth-  whiteness of their efforts, but  Mr. Vucurevich's expression of  appreciation is an incentive to  expend and expand our efforts.  The thrift shop is to have a  paint-in on April 17th. Please  come armed with a sack lunch,  brushes and rollers. The gift  shop reports new stock of interesting odds and ends, soaps and  spoons at attractive prices.  Mrs. Charlotte Raines reported  on arrangements for Blood Donor  Clinic on Thursday, 28th of  April, 2:00 - 7:00 p.m. at the hospital. Posters are to be posted  as reminders of this important  event.  The history of auxiliaries to  St. Mary's is beginning to shape  up. Pender Harbour recommended each auxiliary have a special  fund raising project to support  the Variety Club Telethon for  1978, subject to approval of each  auxiliary. The children we help  may be our own.  Mrs. Muriel Eggins, Volunteer  Director, reported eight new  volunteers were' orientated in  March. Extended Care volunteers met for lunch at the Sunshine Coast Golf and Country  Club with Dana Kearney, Director of Nurses, Val Morrison,  head nurse, 2nd floor, and Lillian  Peters, activity aid. A discussion  was held on how volunteers  could assist nurses more with tiie  patients.  A new in-service 'Tea Service'  is being organized with Dorothy '  Miles, 886-7471, as chairman.  An appetizing meal is hard to  enjoy if you are physically incapable of feeding yourself.  This service with love will meet  a real need.

Nicholson called  a meeting on Monday the 27th  of March in the Gibsons Council  chambers to discuss the upcoming family month in May.  Although Family Month has been  recognized by the communities  of the coast, the committee intend  to develop it into an ongoing project and a logo will be designed  to signify their participation in  local events in the future.  Several projects are already  underway. Stella Mutch is organizing an, outdoor celebration in  the recreation centre on the 15th  of May and with the sponsorship  of the Gibsons Legion a Talent  Night will be held on the 8th of  May. Religious groups will be  holding services during the  month oriented towards the family unit. Members have been  delegated to contact the various  service clubs in the area. It will  be up to the individual organizations what form their participation should take.  May 8th will also see a pancake  breakfast at the Gibsons United  Church in honour of Family  Month. Fred Napora, spokesman  for the Senior Citizens informed  the committee that he would be  in contact with various restaurants on the coast to put across  the idea of special family rates  during the month for family  groups, perhaps in off-peak  periods.  May is a month with a considerable amount of community  events and it is hoped that the  co-ordinators of Family Month  can include themselves in as  many as possible.  ie best...
