A major expansion to the existing facilities  is proposed, at an estimated cost of $2.75 million. This expansion will be made to dovetail with any future development.  f, - The text of Mr. McKimmin's remarks are given here:  jj: I am here tonight as Chairman of the Building, Property,  land Expansion Committee of St. Mary's Hospital Board to  answer as many questions as I can regarding our proposed  ^expansion.

Many of the proposals,  were deferred when the second  story was added for budgeting  reasons at the time and the hospital has been functioning at a disadvantage since then. Other  areas have been under an increasing strain due to the demands of an increasing population. Other proposed changes  are geared to the future, so that  they need not be enlarged at  some point in the future when  the direct patient care areas  need expansion. Many of these  services are provided on an out-  A detailed study was made of  the useage and demands of each  department to which additions or  Ferry employees express doubts  A spokesman for the employees  of the B.C. Ferry Corporation  has expressed serious misgivings  about the ability of the ferry corporation to maintain the new  schedules they have proposed for  the Horseshoe Bay-Langdale run  this summer.  They point out that the maxi-"'  muM speed,of the Queen of New  Westminster is attained with the  engines running at 320 revolutions per minute. This would  enable the ship to cover the distance from Langdale to Horseshoe Bay in forty-five minutes  while the trip from Horseshoe  Bay to Langdale at top speed  would take fifty minutes because  of the necessity of reversing out  of Horseshoe Bay.  Further, the spokesman pointed out that it takes twenty-five  minutes to unload and load the  ship when she is travelling with  a capacity load and it is therefore  impossible that she could keep  the schedule devised by the corporation which would give her  only one hour each way. The  spokesman said, "There's no way  she   won't   fall   ten   or   fifteen  later then trouble arises early in  the afternoon when the Queen of  New Westminster and the Queen  of Burnaby would be scheduled to  arrive at Langdale within ten  minutes of each other.

The spokesman estimated that  the hew schedule would lead to  twelve enforced transfers of  employees out of the district.  The other estimated sixteen  transfers could be accommodated  by means of voluntary transfers.  Good  Citizen  Contest  trip while travelling fully load  ed."  It is also the contention of the  people who work on the ferries  that the schedule proposed is  entirely inflexible, despite Assistant Traffic Manager Bill Bouc-.  hard expressed willingness to  have the first sailing at the present time of 6:45 a.m. instead of  the proposed 5:30 a.m. The employees point out that if the  schedule   is   moved   one   hour  This wide load had a little trouble negotiating on Gibsons Wharf.

Its destination was the  Sechelt Indian Reserve where it is destined to be a nursery school building  with medical facilities attached.  Clothier wins award  Drastic  In the negative with Paterson  were Bernie Mulligan, Barry,  Pearson, and Morgan Thompson.  Chairman Harry Almond expressed himself as being in favour of  giving the recycling depot interim  support.  The regional board's present  spending on garbage disposal  amounts to $9,355.16 per month.  The Recycling Depot was asking  a total of $5,000 to tide them over  till the voting public could decide on their worth in the November referendum;  At the recent ACTRA Awards  ceremonies held in Toronto,  Robert Clothier was adjudged the  Best Actor in a continuing rold  in a Canadian television series.  Clothier won the award 'for his  portrayal of the despicable Relic  in the CBC series The Beach,  combers which is filmed in  Gibsons.  that these changes are justified  at this time. The preparation  and negotiations of the detailed  changes which were used to prepare the plans has been in process for over two years.  Needless to say, all planning  for hospital expansion is done,  in conjunction with the Department of Health, on a long term  basis. Population trend projections and changes in medical  care, to name two items, are  all considered. This present  expansion was first considered  at the time the last expansion  was still being completed. The  Hospital Board and Adminis-  . tration work with the Department  of Health to determine what is  required, and when. The net  results of this planning can be  seen summarized in the plans  ."; attached to the wall. I will point  out the principal areas involved.  New: Emergency, Laboratory,  Case room and operating, Physio  Therapy, Clinical Data, and Administration. Altered or enlarged: Recovery, Day Care,  X-Ray, Laundry, In-Service.  I should point out that the projected costs,  which  have  been  worked out by a Quantity Surveyor, are based upon a start of  construction this fall.   One large  factor in this is the fact that any  government   construction   commenced   after   1977   must   "go  metric".   If the expansion is not  started this year,  the costs  of  . converting the.plans, and the bids  from contractors, will be substantially higher, putting us over the  maximum allowed by the Department of Health. 7 v  f.

The deputy minister refers,  in   his  letter  to  the   Regional  Board dated March  14th,  to a  temporary  borrowing  bylaw   to  .  be passed in two or three months  time.    I assume it is to raise  this sum.  Working with your Mrs. Press-  ley, we have worked out some  figures which may be used as  examples of relative cost to the  local taxpayers. We have used  a 1977 tax base of $77 million,  rates on debentures. It is estimated that the mill rate required  to fund the expansion will be  between 1.45 and 1.69. For the  many homeowners who are presently paying the minimum  property tax of $50.00 (or $1.00)  there should be no increase in  their taxes.  Advisory  A heated discussion took place  at the Regional Board meeting  last Thursday on the subject of  the new Joint Trades Committee  which, it is intended, will act in  an advisory capacity to the building inspector. Director Peter  Hoemberg voiced his fears that  the board stood in danger of  losing the co-operation of its  staff through bad feelings occa- ,  sioned by the new committee.  ' Directors Bernie Mulligan and  Morgan Thompson took the opposite tack from Hoemberg. Mulligan maintained, that at the  present.time the. board was running into problems with the interpretation ofthe building code and  that the Joint Trades Committee  would provide a forum in which  the interpretation could be discussed. Speaking in support of  Mulligan's position Sechelt representative Thompson commented, "It's time we became a  people's board."  Chairman Almond put an end :  to the discussion which followed  by  telling  the  board   that   the  building    inspector    was    quite  willing to give the new committee  i-X^tryj^,,, "There are no grounds  for complaint until such time as  ? the committee overrulled the'inspector, ' 'he said.

The regional  board directors voted narrowly to  refuse a temporary grant to the  recycling people which they asked  for after their application for  monies from the Canada Works  Program was turned down.  Recycler Tom Haig said that  Peninsula Recycling would be out  of business by June unless the  regional board voted them  enough money to continue until  such a time as a referendum .  could be held in November.

They are' not  getting rich. I support recycling  and will always support it." Area  'A' representative, Jack Paterson, was the chief spokesman  against offering the recycling  depot support until such a time  as the public could be consulted  via referendum. Saying, "I  cannot speak too strongly against  it," he urged the neccessity of  budgetary controls. Metzler's  motion to support recycling was  defeated by four votes to three.  Positive votes cast for recycling  were cast by Peter Hoemberg,  Ed Johnson, and' Jim  Metzler.  There has been concern lately  about what is going to happen to  our bus service now that the  ferries are coming up with a  major rescheduling. Bill Hamilton, the manager for Sechelt  Motor Transport, feels that with  his company's thirty years experience in coastal transportation  ���he could give the ferry corporation some useful input but as yet  has had no communication with  them. He is hoping to meet with  Assistant Traffic Manager Bouchard of the B. C. Ferry Corporation this week and is holding  off on any thoughts about changing his timetable until he has  something definite to work on.  The bus company,is required  to give thirty days notice before  any change in schedule. The  ferry corporation is not and the'  last\ time there were changes  there was inadequate advance  Warning  from  the ferries  with  resultant confusion for that portion of the public that travels by  bus. It would appear that this  will be unavoidable again due to  lack of consultation on the part of  the ferry corporation.  One ofthe main problems the  bus company is facing is the link  up between Langdale and Earls  Cove. At the present time the  morning bus from Powell River  can only make the ferry at Langdale because the crews on the  ferry delay long enough for the  bus. The actual scheduling of  the ferries .does not make adequate provision for the bus connection.  Pointing out that there has  been a bus 'service as long as  there has been a ferry service to  this part of the coast. Bill Hamilton is hoping that his company  will be shown more consideration  in future schedule changes.

Beachcombers' and live-  aboards are most adversely affected by the recent' steep increase in wharfage rates announced last week. Beachcombing  boats and boats used as residences will pay the same rate as  pleasure craft in the new scheme  announced by Transport Canada.  One live-aboard, an elderly  gentleman living on Mincome is  faced with an increase in wharf  rates from $12.00 to $87-00 per  month. A comparative rate at  Smitty's Marina would be $45.00  per month, just over half of the  amount proposed by the federal  government effective April 1st.  Though provision is made for  commercial fishing vessels, no  such consideration is extended to  the    beachcombing    fraternity.  They, too, will be charged the  same amount as boats that tie  ��� up for a day or two. on pleasure  outings from the city.

Community Hall  The vexatious question of the utilization of the Roberts Creek Community  Hall is with us again. It seems that  every time there is a dance there a lot  of people get upset. Usually Fire Chief  Glen Kraus is one of the first. He shows  a very proper concern that the exit to the  Fire Hall be not blocked by parked cars  and it seems that every time there is a  dance, irregardless ofthe sponsor, somebody parks their car in front of the firehall.  On the heels of the last dance, sponsored by the N.D.P. Club there were the  usual complaints about the fire hall and  too many people at the dance and as a  result it is reported that the hall has  been closed to future dances for the  umpteenth time in the last few years.  The thing is, the Roberts Creek Community Hall, ramshackle as it is, is a  great place to stage dances. It's central  to the southern half of the Sunshine Coast  and there is no better venue for dances  which would draw people from their enclaves in Sechelt and Gibsons.  One can sympathize with Fire Chief  Kraus and with the people of the Roberts  Creek Community Association who keep  winding up in the middle between dance  sponsors and the Fire Chief but surely  some more constructive way can be found  around this difficulty.  The problem basically arises because  you have a community hall with no parking facilities directly across the road from  the fire hall. This is a problem of basic  planning which is the fault of neither the  sponsors of a dance nor the Fire Chief.  What can be done about it?  When the dance was over last week  there were three patrol cars cruising  vigilantly past the hall. The police were  alert. Couldn't some of this vigilant  alertness be put to some preventive use.  There's always going to be someone who  doesn't know or who forgets or who just  doesn't care about clearing the fire hall.  Couldn't a patrol car take up it's position  by the fire hall at the start of the dance  and make sure no one parks there. That  way Mr. Kraus could relax, the Community Association wouldn't be disturbed  and the sponsors of the dance would be  a little less harried.  Certainly there's got to be a better  solution than closing the hall to future  dances and this may be one that would go  a long way to solving the problem.  Information  On the heels of an editorial recently  about Conservative M.P. Gerald Baldwin's expressed concern about the  secrecy in governmental practices, there  comes this week a release from the Canadian Bar Association, B. C. Branch,  which reveals that British Columbia's  3,000 lawyers are spearheading a move  for freedom of information legislation to  end government secrecy.  The first time the matter was brought  up to the attention of this newspaper  was at a recent joint meeting of commercial and sports fishermen when John  Daly raised the issue. It comes as a bit  of a shock to realize that this is an area in  which Canada lags ten years behind the  United States and indeed much of the  democratic world.  To Mr. Daly, to Gerald Baldwin,' and  most recently to the B. C. Branch of the  Canadian Bar Association, thank you  gentlemen for your efforts on our behalf.  Knob Hill  The editor of this paper, spurred on  perhaps by acquaintance with several  of the pretty ladies in charge of the local  fitness programs, their charm and  radiant good health, has undertaken  something of a personal fitness rehabilitation program of his own. It largely  takes the form of a daily stroll to the top  of Knob Hill and in the course of these  little outings he has developed a con  siderable familiarity with the new trail  which seemed to be a bone of contention  locally a few weeks ago.  Let it be said that this particular editor  is convinced of both the charm and the  appropriateness of the work done there.  It shows the same taste, craftmanship,  and careful blending with the natural  surroundings that one finds in the  Roberts Creek Recreational Area. It  is at least one man's opinion that the  people who did the work are to highly  commended for their efforts.  from the files of Coast News  5 YEARS AGO  Driftwood Players will present their  award winning play, Tenessee Williams'  Suddenly Last Summer to Gibsons by the  same cast that won four top honors at  the Vancouver Island Drama Festival.  10 YEARS AGO  At the Twilight: Sean Connery in  "Goldfinger".  80 students from the peninsula will  go visit Expo 67.  15 YEARS AGO  Gibsons - Sechelt Municipal Airport  officially opens.

Did the transportation committee know that it  was well satisfied with the proposed changes? Be so advised,  be so advised. Mr. Gallagher  says so. Who's Mr. Gallagher,  you ask. Why he's the pip in  the orange, the seed in the grape,  the inner circle of the inner  circle. Mr. Gallagher is the  General Manager of the B. C.  Ferry Corporation and Mr. Gallagher says, right on the radio,  that our transportation committee  is happy with the schedule. In  fact, but for committee member  Frank West phoning up and  spluttering his indignation at  Gallagher's colossal gall, the  people of B. C. might have learned this week that all was well in  the world of ferry schedules and  the Sunshine Coast.  Now the purpose here is not to  debate ad nauseam the question  of the ferry schedule. I .don't  think it will work, lots of people  don't think it will work, but time  will tell. No, I'm more interested  just now in the machinations of  the ferry corporation as it wrestles reluctantly with this tiresome  nuisance of democracy. Why  won't those people just do what  they're told and take what they  get, you can almost hear them  whine to each other, esconced in ���  one of the luxury bars in the  vicinity of their plush offices.  .You may recall that the fares  on our ferries, despite an Anti-  Inflation Board with initials of  its own, went up about 100% last  summer and the local citizenry  was moved to make a fuss about  it at the Langdale terminal. On  the heels of that demonstration  the ponderous corporate mind of  the B. C. ferries decided, not to  take another look at the fares,  but to manipulate the public  opinion on this small defiance of  a coastline. Enter Bill Bouchard.  He' is apparently, what large  corporations call a "trouble-  shooter", "a firefighter" or  something suitably colourful.  Whatever the official title is, the  job requires that the trouble-  shooter go among those who have  been offended by the actions of  the corporation and, where anger  is, smooth things over.  Routinely there are great shows  of consultation, partings of a few  backs, much noddings and agreements and thoughtful pauses and  considerations. But, and this is  the key point, if the corporation  has its way nothing gets changed.  If Mr. Bouchard does his job well  the B. C. ferry corporation will  do exactly as it pleases with the  ferry service and whatever takes  place seemingly in the way of  consultation will have absolutely  no effect whatsoever.  Let's take a look backwards for  a moment. If memory serves  me well, the first meeting of the  hastily-formed Transportation  Committee, appointed by Mayor  Labonte of Gibsons, met on  March 1st to discuss "catering".  Within two weeks of this earth-  shaker the Coast News learned  of the major re-structuring of the  ferry service. Bouchard must  have known about it. when he  was discussing the lack of brown  bread, but not a word to the  committee. Subsequent to this  Bouchard wanted to have secret  meetings with the committee.  That seemed absurd to the committee and they said so. Ah well,  even the smoothies don't win  them all, Mr. Bouchard.  Now the second meeting of the  Transportation Committee with  Bouchard was held in Earls Cove  on April 5th and the scheduled  topic on this occasion was another  motherhood and apple pie special. They were going to discuss  "tourism". There was an abrupt  change of direction between the  time the story broke in the Coast  News of March 22nd and the  "tourism" meeting of April 5th  and Bouchard showed up in Earls  Cove with an armload of statistics  to justify the new schedule. It  is a moot point whether the public would have heard about the  schedule changes yet if the ferry  corporation had had its way.  So now we come to the consultation that Mr. Gallagher  speaks of on the radio. The committee members arrive in Egmont  and receive copies ofthe schedule  and carefully-selected statistics  to justify it at the self-same time.  Now, if the ferry corporation had  been serious about consulting the  Transportation Committee it.  would have had copies of that  schedule in the hands of the committee two or three weeks ahead  of the meeting^ time. It was  definitely possible. We had a  copy of it by March 20th ourselves, identical with the one  shown the committee members  of April 5th. It is obvious nonsense to present a schedule and  a bunch of statistics to a group of  men and expect them to have  time to assimilate the information  and make decisions in any  meaningful way in the course of  a two and a half hour meeting -  the first half of which is spent  eating.  And then just as a savoury,  consider this. I spoke to Bouchard on the phone on the Thursday before our last paper came  out, the day before Good Friday.  We were going to co-operate  fully even if we thought the whole  thing to be a bit of a charade.  Alright, I' said, what can this  questionnaire say? What areas  are open for change? How can  the citizenry hope to make meaningful comment? What's negotiable? I didn't exactly say all  that, but that's what I was driving  at. After a lengthy chat it came  down to areas that might be  affected by input from the people  of the peninsula. Did we want  the first ferry to go at 5:30 a.m.  or 6:45 a.m.? We could not have  both. The second area of input  concerns whether the afternoon  boat from Horseshoe Bay might  be better to sail fifteen minutes  later. So we put out the questionnaire. To avoid total absurdity  we provided a few lines for general comment.  Further, when we looked over  the schedule again it became  apparent that on it's third or  fourth arrival the Queen of New  Westminster would coincide with  the Queen of Burnaby, making  the first of its visits as part of a  triangle run. The Nanaimo boats  are fixed in their orbits, so to  speak, so in all likelihood, although the voices heard are from  two to three to one in favour of  the first ferry being scheduled for  6:45 a.m., with a later sailing at  night to round the schedule off,  what we will get is.exactly what  B. C. ferries have intended to  give us from the beginning.  I, for one, wish to express my  indignation at what I perceive to  be the cynicism, duplicity, and  arrogance exhibited by the officials of the ferry corporation. It  is my contention that at no time  did they intend the Transportation Committee to be anything  except what it became this  week - that is, something Mr.  Gallagher can mention as proof  of consultation. A consultation  that was never intended to take  place.  ��� - As for that lion of the local  press who expressed the conviction that this insignificant nibble  of a questionnaire gave evidence'  ofthe noble hearts that beat within the ferry corporation, one can  only shake one's head. Bouchard  must wish it was always that  easy.  ^Slings & Arrows  $>George Matthews  The Coast News featured a  poem last week by a fellow named  Shakespeare. Mr. Shakespeare,  so my books tell me, wrote a great  number of these poems as well  as forty or so plays. All this was  done almost four hundred years  ago.  Back in those days the English  language, at lease as we know it,  was in its infancy. There were no  spelling books, grammar books or  dictionaries and when a writer  couldn't think of a word to express some idea he could just go  ahead and invent one and no one  would be the wiser. Shakespeare  himself was quite an inventor of  words. You might say that English was in a primitive state in  those days although when you  see the -way Shakespeare put  words together or when you read  other words penned at that time  like:  "The words of a wise man's  mouth are gracious; but the lips  of a fool will swallow up himself.  The beginning of the words of his  mouth is foolishness: and the end  of his talk is mischievous madness/'  you might be inclined to doubt the  meaning of' 'primitive ".  Back in those early days language was the servant of the  mind. It was a tool whereby a  person might make himself understood. If a passionate lad  wished to express his admiration  for the charms of a particular  young woman he needn't reply on  such abstract circumlocutions as,  "you're a foxy looking lady";  he would be more to the point  with something like;  Thy navel is like a round goblet  which wanteth not liquor. Thy  belly is like a heap of wheat set  about with lilies. Thy two breasts  are like... .etc., etc.  If a person wished to express his  annoyance with someone he  would not fall back upon vague  and tired old expressions such as  you S.O.B., or make some obscure reference to various anatomical parts; he would get right  down to it with things like, "The  devil damn thee black, thou  cream-faced loon!", or "May the  fleas of a thousand camels infest  thy beard".  Not much of consequence has  been said since those early days.  Men like Shakespeare, Jonson,  Heywood, Marlowe and others  said it all, (Women who dared to  say wise things in those days  were burned at the stake or sent  to nunneries; we have made some  progress).  These days language is no  longer the servant of the mind,  it has become the master. Language has become so sophisticated that it is quite, possible to  discuss a subject for several hours  without getting to the point. It  is possible to hide the truth in  a lie or a lie in the truth. Statistics, jargon, abstract terminology,  or just plain longwindedness have  been developed to such a fine art  that the facts are not discernible  from the lies. Unemployment  statistics for example: we have  the number of unemployed  (which is outrageous) the percentage of _ the work force unemployed (which is disgusting) added  to the number of people who have  given up hope of ever even finding a job (which is horrendous)  and the "seasonally adjusted"  rate (which isn't so bad after all).  Then we, have the jargon.  Careers are made of words; great  economic advantage is gained by  knowledge of a few obscure  terms. Teachers trade on it. The  entire, legal profession depends  on words the average citizen ���  can't interpret. Words, like 0  esophagus, mononucleosis,  haemophilia, .; electrdencephlo-  gram separate the healers- from  the victims. A career in politics  or government bureaucracy! is  absolutely dependent on the  ability to say nothing in the  longest, most drawn out way. To  finish an earlier quote;  A fool also is full of words:  a man cannot tell what shall be;  and what shall be after him,  who can tell him?  Words no longer have plain  meanings. They- gather around  them the dust of experience,  fear, superstition and bias. A  simple word Hke "home" carries  this ancient dust which cloaks  its concrete meaning. "I am  going home", tells us one thing;  "I am putting her in a home"  tells us quite another. 7. ��� ���  When a language degenerates  to the point where words no  longer convey clear meaning we  lose our ability to communicate.  When we lose our ability to communicate we can no longer trust  people or even ourselves. Long  before a civilization falls, the  language crumbles and judging  by the current state of the language things look grim. The disdain of young people for the  language of their elders may be  an ominous clue.  We are ruled, controlled, manipulated, classified and seduced  by words, and while one might  have enjoyed an Elizibethan  seduction, there's nothing gracious, elegant or uplifting in the  words of the modern seducer.  When the dentist says, "This  won't hurt a bit", I am unconvinced. When John Diefenbaker  says, "Nothing I ever do is political", I remain skeptical. When  the salesman says, "I don't want  to pressure you into something  you don't need", I experience  doubt. Too often today what is  said is not meant and what is  meant is not said. As Mr. Shakespeare once wrote;  And be these juggling fools  no more believed/ That palter  with us in a double sense/ That  keep the word of promise to our  ear/ And break it in our hope.  Editors Quote Book  Be a friend to yourself  and others will.   .  Scottish Proverb LETTERS to the EDITOR  Rio Pete Thank you     UFO sighted  Coast News, April 19,1977.  Note: Who is Rio Pete? This  letter arrived this week signed  "Rio Pete". The editor, old  sleuth that he is, suspects the  hand of a sophisticated coastal  resident masquerading as a  country bumpkin. There will be  a suitable reward for any information leading to the identification of "Rio Pete".  Editor:  I have just driven in to Vancouver to the stockyards with a  herd of cows from up in the Cariboo and my pony took the wrong  road so here I ends up on to the  ferry and seen this story about a  feller named Jack Horner.  It's the first newspaper I seen  for some time and it's darned  amusing. One feller, named Ron  Corlett, he gets a holiday and  goes to Ottawa and comes back  complaining and this other writer  with his picture on top of his  story, he thinks Jack Horner  got his head boiled!  Seems to me, from what Mr.  Matthews says, getting in with  the Liberals is a right smart  thing to do if a feller is too soft  for hard work and would like to  ride around in limousines and  wear fancy clothes and have  everybody standing around watching him all the time.  I guess Mr. Corlett figures the  legislators is all hypocrites and  that may be so but I figger all  them laws is mostly foolish anyways, so I don't know if Mr.  Corlett is trying to conserve  energy or not but I sure know I  ain't.  I remember when them dudes  down in Ottawa was predicting  high beef prices in about ten  years, and all the ranchers should  go ahead and keep lots of cows.  Well that was more than ten years  ago and it looks to me like everything is going up in price excepting beef. I know I seen the price  as high as almighty in the store  a couple of years back but I know  my boss ain't no rich man and I  seen a few of the other ranchers  sold out recently and quit.  I don't reckon the politicians  is much good for anything but  they don't do no harm and it  seems like- people around your  town have a whale of a fine time  talking and writing stories about  them, and mighty humorous at  that so I don't complain about the  high taxes on whiskey because if  a feller is crazy enough to drink it  once in a while, and he runs out of  money, why he just gets a little  wiser is all.  Now I don't dare sign my name  to this here letter, because if the  boys back up at the ranch got  wind of it, and find out I know  how to read and write, I'm a  going to have lots of explaining  to do and I don't want to end up  going to no necktie party in my  honour. L  Anyways the fellers at the  ticket booth which I figgered was  a drive-in movie and ended up  being the ferry, he took my last  five dollars, I thought he was interested in buying my boss and  turned out I had to pay extra for  him because he was five years  old. Course he's a way more  than that but I could of jusf as  well said four.  I don't want to go back on that  ferry though. Not that you people  ain't all polite sand nice but I  think I'll just head right out for  Squamish and cut across that  way till I get to the Fraser River  and then I can catch me a fish  and have something to eat for  the rest of the trip.  I sure hope you folks all enjoy  them steaks we brought down for  you. Them critters was plenty  ornery for the first few hundred  miles until we come through the  canyon but they settled down real  goad on that valley grass and  should be mighty fine eating.  I sure hope so.  Also I am mighty grateful to  get a 'chance to practice up on  my reading and writing. I wish  you folks lots of luck with all your  troubles and hope your meetings  go along real fine.  Rio Pete  P.S. A few years back we had to  hold some meetings up to Likely,  and we found that if the fighters  with the big boots on, left them  at the door, nobody got too bad  hurt.  Editor:  Thanks to your compassionate  insight in printing the recent  story "Will Robbie Please Stand  Up?", and the accompaning  author's note, I have found the  lady about whom the story was  written. She read it, recognized  herself, and we are in touch.  The "long shot" payed off.  While this incident is part of  a very personal quest, your response bespeaks a spirit of caring  that is all too rare in our world.  So long as there are people who  care about people, there will be  happy endings.  For being touched by a personal story, for being moved to  respond and becoming part of  a "happy ending", simply,  Thank you.  Geraldine Gillespie  Herbicides  The streets are for the  people.  Exercise your rights!  Take a walk.  Editor:  In the April 12th issue of the  Coast News the responses of five  people on the Sunshine Coast to  the question "How do you feel  about B. C. Hydro using herbicides on the right of way?" was  published. Every one of the five  people asked was opposed to  spraying but only one of the five  made any positive suggestion  about how to fight this situation.  All the others appear to take the  attitude, "we don't like it but  there's nothing we can do".  As I understand it B. C. Hydro  has an obligation to inform the  Regional Board when and where  the spraying is to take place  and what chemicals are to be  used. It seems that if the board  disapproved the proposal they  could be over-ruled and the  spraying would go ahead anyway.  In a conversation with Don  Lockstead this afternoon Tasked  him what his reaction would be  if he was inundated with letters  from concerned people about the  spraying. Being against spraying  - too, he felt that this-indeed may  be the way to go. The budget  estimates have not all been approved yet and when the House  reconvenes in a few weeks time  this would be an excellent opportunity to bring this matter up.  I would like to suggest therefore that the people overwhelm  Don Lockstead's office with letters, petitions, etc. and that any  Ratepayers Associations or other  similar organizations whose  members are opposed to spraying  do likewise, the more the better  and maybe, just maybe, the  powers that be sitting in their  ivory towers in Vancouver might  respond.  I personally feel that the form  type letter is not the answer but  if everyone took the trouble to  write their own little thing, and  most people are capable of writing some sort of a letter, the  effect would be far greater. It  doesn't have- to be a literary  masterpiece, just a note, if you  wish, to tell the world you are  opposed to the spraying of all this  junk about our countryside.  The rate of unemployment over  here now is so high that any  work for these people would be  welcome. The argument that  accidents are liable to happen  because of inexperienced people  using machetes and chain-saws  etc. is no argument at all. If  you stopped all work because  there might be an accident,  nothing would get accomplished  at all.  But above all don't let's sit  back and say, "Well, we don't  like this spraying business but  we can't do anything about it".  Sure we can do something about  it and it's up to us now to give our  M.L.A. Don Lockstead our support and let him go to work for  us. His address is simply: Don  Lockstead M.L.A., Parliament  Buildings, Victoria, B. C.  Reading back over this thing  it reads like a political campaign  effort but believe me it's not.  Don told me that many other  people up the coast had asked  him the same question, including  a High School audience of students so we know that this is a  question which concerns many  people and it is to be hoped that  people will respond in a positive  way. To think negative is playing  right into the hands of B. C.  Hydro.  John Hind Smith  Editor:  At 7:30 in the evening of April  5th I shut off my television and  walked through to my 'bedroom  whose window overlooks the  water and Keats Island. Against  the. darkening sky my eye was  caught by a large, softly glowing  white light, moving through the  air from the direction of the island, and having seen such lights  before, I immediately realized  what it was. I rushed for my  binoculars and went to the window from where I, saw, against  the greying sky, a large dark  shape hanging in the air apparently in front of the Morrison  house, over the ��� water. This  shape, I could see through the  glasses was thick through the  middle and tapering at each end,,  with a bright reddish light on  the trailing edge. As I looked at  it, it began to rise and I had to  crouch nearly to the floor to keep  it in sight through the top of the  window, from where I saw it  drift slowly towards the north  above the apparent shoreline.  During this time I heard no sound  from the object.  This was definitely not an aeroplane nor a helicopter, as was  suggested to me, for when either  of those craft pass over Gibsons  my house reverberates with the  noise of the motors, and, as I  said, this object made no sound  audible to me.  I have seen other U.F.O.'s  during my lifetime, but never one  so close, and I would like to ask  whether anyone else in the area  saw this one. Thank you.  E. R. East  Editor's note:  The Coast News would be  moat interested In hearing  about any other sightings of  unexplained ...    phenomenon.  Spraying  Editor:  Re the article appearing in  your, paper some, weeks ago,  Herbicides and B. C. Power Line.  It is nice to see Mr. Cy White  so obliging on his report of same.  However, the use of 2,4-D and  brush, kill of all types on power  lines and all right of ways are  harmful. If not why have many  of these places been posted "Do  not pick berries"?  In reply to the part which states  the spray is locked into the  ground. What a bunch of Hog  Wash that one is.  Several years ago when this  line was sprayed by helicopter  within 2 days the reservoirs at  Gibsons were covered with a  thin skin of oil which carried  the spray. On our protest of this  the answer was the wind came up  during the spraying and ran and  carried the spray off course.  When in fact one of the source  streams was sprayed right over.  Also many of the fir trees  60 feet high to the side of the  power line on that spraying  were completely brown within  one week. It sure appears' to be  a good ground foliant.  We are told that these types of  material have no harmful effect  on fish. But nothing has ever  been said about its effect on fish  Service  eggs in stream beds. Mr. White  and some of the powers that be  should take a walk on some of  these lines in late October when  the heavy rains commence and  smell these sprays come back to  life when the ground water  starts to move them. What effect  has this material on game that  browse on this sprayed material?  On berries and seeds consumed  by bird life? Let alone the effect  of spraying over nesting birds  in June.  These are the answers we must  have as people interested in  wild life and our own environment. ^  The objection to people working on clearing on rough terrain.  How was the line from Squamish  to Powell River cleared in the  first place? Not by spraying.  I personally worked on many  miles of it clearing for B. C.  Electric. Hydro now runs its  own vehicles along it for miles,  motor bikes and horses use it  for miles. It may be cheaper  to spray using sprays made in  U.S.A.  But how about it provincial  government and B. C. Hydro?  People are out of work. Let's  put some of our job grants to  this type of work and improve  our environment for the generations to come.  Fred Holland  that  I  am   aware  many  complications  Fe  Editor:  mes  I am enclosing a copy of a letter  to the B. C. Ferry Corporation  which may be of some interest.  At the same time I would like  to express my appreciation of  your paper. I believe you are  making a fine contribution to our  community with good writing and  an intelligent editorial policy.  James A. Waldie  Gibsons, B. C.._. loyed braves  As the chief  there are  and considerations involved in a schedule  change, however I would hope  that the public would receive the  first priority. At a time when  unemployment is growing at an  ominous rate it would appear  -unwise to alter that part of a  schedule which directly affects  the lives of so many people.  I seriously request that you use  your influence to prevent what  could become a tragedy for so  many people.  James A. Waldie  Gibsons, B. C.  Incentives  Editor:  The federal budget's additional  incentives to business to invest  while the rest of us pay their  share of taxes, and its shoulder  shrugging attitude toward unemployment and inflation could  start a new folk tale.  Once there was a chief who  agreed to organize the hunt if  the tribe would give him an incentive of half the meat.  He directed the work of the bow  makers, the arrow makers, the  beaters and the bearers. After  the hunt he got half the meat. He  ate all he could, smoked some,  and let a lot go to waste.  As the tribe grew bigger, the  game became scarce and hunting  became more difficult.  "I need more incentive,"  said the chief. "Give me 60% of  the meat."  The tribe agreed.  "There are' too many young  men," he said. "They get in the  way and scare off the game. They  will have to stay home since they  can't be employed in the hunt."  Now that the chief got 60% of  the meat, he could afford to throw  a bone and a scrap to the unemp-  Editor:  May I suggest that there is  more to scheduling a ferry service than dividing the apparent  demand by the capacity of the  ship to determine the number of  trips, and then producing a  schedule of minimum inconvenience to the crews. There is  such a thing as timing, the provision of service when it's needed  by the public and commercial  interests who are dependent upon  the system. We have commuters,  shoppers, weekend visitors and  theatre goers; there are produce  trucks, mail trucks and industrial  deliveries; there are connections  to be made at Earls Cove or  Horseshoe Bay, within the ferry  system and with other forms of  public and private transportation.  Quote statistics by all means but  use them intelligently and not as  a substitute for rational thought.  This area needs a good public  transportation system. But we  will make no progress until the  ferry system becomes a stable,  convenience and co-ordinated  part of an overall plan.  William I.

Dear Sirs:  I am writing to you on behalf  of many local residents who are  concerned regarding the proposed changes in the Langdale-  Horseshoe Bay run.  Of special concern to us is the  elimination of the 6:45 sailing in  favour of a 7:35 sailing from  Langdale. Such a change will  make it impossible for many Sunshine Coast residents to arrive  at their occupation in time, and  would greatly inconvenience a,  larger number. It would also  prohibit attendance at any of the  post-secondary institutions, a  service which is being utilized by  a number of local students and  which is not available locally.  - These commuters have planned  their lives around the 6:45 sailing  which has remained unchanged  through winter and summer  schedules for enough years to  give it a kind of "historic priority".  got older, his  teeth fell out and his appetite  began to fail. "Now I need a  bigger incentive," he said.  "Give me % of the meat."  This started an argument.  One man said the chief already  had too much and let most of it  go to waste. Another said that  since the animals came from  afar, the scarcity of game was an  inter-tribal problem and nothing  could be done. A fat man said,  "The chief needs more meat to  feed the unemployed young  braves who are too lazy to hunt."  An angry young brave said,  "The chief can live off his fat  and the meat he wastes. We can  organize a hunt without him.  Let him stay home."  The young brave was stoned  and driven out of the village for  his dangerous ideas.  In the end the old chief got his  incentive, and the people got  hungrier - and we got the.federal  budget.  Richard von Fuchs  Courtenay  INTRODUCING  BANK  OF  MONTREAL  Gibsons, B. C.

So the married man supposedly lives longer  or maybe it only seems longer.  If you can't hack marriage, move  to the country.  Dear Ann:  I enjoy life so much and would  like to retard aging.

Did  you ever notice how little comfort  means to the young? They adventure, meet new people, camp  out, stay up late, anyway, dance  and sing and love. Love people,  love being alone, love horses,  flowers, sun bathing. Even eating an orange is pure enjoyment.

So  By Joan Robb  Madrigals are songs of the  Renaissance: three, four, or five-  part harmonies, sung unaccompanied, and primarily to entertain the singers rather than the  listeners.  In the true spirit of the "Musical banquet',', the "convivial  musical evening", the Raincoast  Madrigal Singers continue to  meet and sing at each other's  homes every Monday evening -  often after sharing dinner and  almost invariably over wine and  laughter.  The group began in early 1975  under the impetus of Allan Crane.  Over the following two years,  with the absorption and loss of  members, it was evolved to a  core of close friends who together  have camped, fought, drunk,  performed, studied, and most of  all joined in the thrill of moments  of blended harmony and the pure  joy of music.  In the present configuation of  this appropriately fluid group  (the word "madrigal" derives  from the Latin matrix), there are  three sopranos: Debbie Torren-  burg, Christabel Watson, and  Joan Robb, two altos: Alexis  Davison and Bronia Robbins, two  tenors: Clarke Steabner and  Adrian Stott, and three basses:  Ken Dalgleish (who has been  singing tenor), Ed Nicholson,  and Ron "School Bus" Watts.  Bronia, Ken, and Joan have been  with the group since its inception;  members have been away and returned, have left the group and  returned, have left the group and  not yet returned; new people have,  been assimilated.  Amongst this membership  there is a melange of musical  training, interests and experience. Most of the singers are  veterans of church, school, university or community choirs and  choral groups, as well as playing  other instruments and being involved in folk, rock, jazz and classical music. All are true amateurs - that is, they do it for love  of music.  get plenty of sleep and properly  fuel your engine. You will probably   start   to   feel   the   energy,  quitting   smoking  and   alcohol,  give your sex drive a boost, so   :  all. in all you will feel younger and..::  .look more vital. ��� We should ati.-ori  take better care of our bodies,n;,  and get more enjoyment out of  life.   Off to the fish market and  health food stores.   Let me hear   .  from you.     Remember alcohol,  cigarettes  and  coffee  kill  your  vitamins.    Think of the money  you could save!  Leadership   has   consequently  been somwhat problematic. Mike  Simpkins,  now   teaching   music  and leading band and choir in  Pender Harbour, helped launch  the group when Allan shared his  acquaintanceship with the madrigal form.    Six months later he  moved up the peninsula. The ensemble, being unready to accept  the   direction   of  any   of  their  number,  moved into a  "democratic phase", with each other  taking a turn  at directing  and  everyone    debating    interpretations.   When the group was on  the verge of explosion last summer, Alexis Davison saved it by  reluctantly consenting to assume  directorship.     Since January of  this year, Adrian Stott - also reluctantly  -  has  infused  a  new  strength of organization and direction into an ebullient society  whose talents  are probably  as  easily   dissipated   as   focussed.  It is hoped that with the grant  recently received from the Sunshine Coast Arts Council it will  be  possible  to   bring   in   some  highly   qualified   director  for   a  weekend workshop.  The new degree of dicipline,  applied to an exciting'and long-  needed new volume of Italian  madrigals has produced, with  Spring, a new convergence and  excitement, to which it is fitting  that Allan (who is in Mexico but.  who is expected within the  month) should return.  A usual rehearsal begins with  breathing, ear training, and vocal  exercises and progresses through  an hour or two of work on pieces  both new and old to the group.  Sometimes there is a venture into  other choral forms, and there  has been enthusiastic talk of scat  singing.  Although the musicality of the  madrigal group is esoteric and  at times elusive, it is perhaps  never so entrancing to its members when they pick up a new and  entirely unfamiliar piece of  music, and with a single pitch  and a single beat, begin singing  unaccompanied and recognizable  four- or five-part harmony at  sight, and taste the beauty and  delight of songs of the Renaissance.

One such is the term  'Molly Hogan'. Basically it refers  to a single strand of six-strand  cable rql/ed up into a several-  stranded ring. The twist or lay  of the line locks the strands together; and the ring is unbreakable under ordinary stress-conditions, [fit is generally used to  join two cable-eyes or as a cotter-  key in/blocks. How this very  commonly-used yarding-adjunct  acquired its title, I don't even  propose'to conjecture. The truth  might ;well be too gamey for a  family newspaper anyway. My  purpose in bringing up the matter  at all is that the name has recently  been adopted by the owners of  a new and rather unique neighbourhood pub in South Vancouver.  I first learned about the imminent advent of the place while  visiting Bus Griffiths, the logger-  artist, last fall. At that time, he  showed me a sequence of six  large drawings depicting an old-  time high-rigger in the act of topping a spartree. I thought it some  of the best logging-art he'd ever  done and told him so. "Thanks"  he rasped in a pleased way. "I  did 'em for these four young  fellers from CampWoss. They're  starting up a pub in Vancouver  called the Molly Hogan and they  wanted some stuff for their walls.  They're real fans of your logging  poetry too. You oughta look 'em  up."      j  That last part got me right in  the ego of course and I told Bus  that I'd sure as hell do that. God  knows, a guy needs all the boosters he can find in this ill-paying  racket.! I got their number from  feler Trower  him but a major emotional involvement and a few other matters like poverty, kept me from  checking the place out for some  months. Finally, a brief while  back, I got around to investigating The Molly Hogan personally  and I was more than pleasantly  surprised.  Although there have been a  number of pubs and lounges with  superficial logging motifs before,  their involvement with the woods  never extended beyond hanging  bits of ancient equipment and old  photographs on the walls or.  sporting menues with such  pseudo-funky entrees as "high-  rigger steaks". The Molly Hogan  has wall-decorations too of which  Bus Griffiths' excellent drawings  are the highlight; it has tables of  laminated boards salvaged from  old log dumps and a bar decorated with axe-handles; it has all  the expected trappings and a few  more plus good beer in pint-  mugs. But The Molly Hogan has  an element of authenticity that  the other places invariably lack:  it is entirely owned and staffed  by ex-loggers and the money that  fronted its hundred-thousand-  dollar decor was raised totally  through personal loans from other  logging friends.  Three of the young partners  (average age: 23) actually grew  up in the big camp at Woss Lake.  The sons of loggers, they were  naturally steeped in woodslore  from an early age and just as  naturally, hit the rigging themselves as soon as they were old  enough. They might still be  working the camps had not Ron  Wickstrom, the dark-haired affable young guy who conceived  the whole thing, been struck by  Ihe Damnation of Vancouver  Earle Birney  McOelland ft Stewart Ltd.  79pp.  Originally published in 1952,  this play has been neglected until  now, having been seldom produced or taken notice of. The  reason for its neglect must be  that it has always been a little  too strong for some people to  deal with. Because finally, it  is a damnation, and such a powerful and poetic one that it produces  a haunting effect on the reader.  Birney got the idea for it from  a civic meeting' at Courtenay,  Vancouver Island, twenty years  ago. At the time, the government  was going to dam Buttle Lake,  the last glacial/lake on Vancouver  Island. During the hearing about  the matter, / the author was  amazed at how few people really  cared about the lake one way or  another. But a good artist can  find inspiration even in apathy,  as long as i/s not his own, and this  is the moring force behind this  particularplay.  It's an odd little thing, looking  very unpretentious in it's present  slim volume, but it ends up to be  very surprising indeed. The setting is a meeting in the Vancouver  court house, down in one of the  sterilized basement rooms. The  time is five years from now, and  the meeting has been convened  by the federal government.  They've decided to do away with  Vancouver, and blow it up with a  Z-bomb. A man from the Ministry of History is there to preside  over the discussion. A Mr.  Legion is present for the defense,  and a Mr. Powers, from the Office  ofthe Future, is there to advance  the government case for damnation. Aside from these, a handy  materialization machine can call  up figures from the past, and  during the course of the play we  meet:   Capt. Vanouver, the past  Books with  John  Fausimahn  Chief of the Snow-Knee Salish,  Gassy Jack Deighton, and Piers  Plowman's author Wm. Lang-  land. Two live witnesses, a geologist from the University of the  Sovereign State of Columbia, and  a housewife, Mrs. Anyone, round  out the main characters of the  cast.  Birney   has   a   fine   ear   for  bureaucratese, and the tone of  his play reproduces exactly the  uniform despondancy that usually  accompanies such meetings. By  extending, twisting, and turning  the language, he quickly moves  the setting into the realm of the  absurd. Mr. Powers talks in a  peculiar jargon meant to represent English of the future. He  states the case:  "Treason or true, the Off-face  of the Future/ finds this city-  pretty now a misfate in its planes.  Like every think of booty, sir,/  it's copulated to destriction;/  its lifeliness decreases and must  ever/ pass into nothinmist./  Your town's dimnition is, I fear,/  inevitoidable, and overdue."  Against Powers, Legion for the  defense can only rail and bluster.   ��� ���\  Corner  Cameras  886-7822 /  ;     T  CAMERA  AND  DARKRM.  SUPPLIES  FREE 126 Outfit  With every $50.00  Purchase.     A  inspiration one wet, foggy day on  an Englewood sidehill. The idea  burgeoned through long evenings  at the Nelson Place on Granville;  bars in Italy and Spain; more  sidehills at McNab Creek. Finally  at a bar in Squamish in the summer, of 1975, the scheme took  concrete form. By God, he'd  really do it! He'd actually start  his own neighbourhood pub.  When he told his pals from childhood, Roger Trettenaro and Art  Stewart about the scheme, they  were enthusiastic. - The snag of  course was money. Like most  loggers, none of them had much  more than his last pay-cheque.  They had plenty of tenacity and  imagination, however and set  "about to bankroll the project by  approaching the many loggers  they mutually knew. They were  soon joined in this endeavour by  a fourth friend, Barry Edwards.  Barry hailed from Ontario but  had worked with the others at  Woss and elsewhere. He had a  somewhat greater incentive for  wanting to change his profession  than the others.  While working a steep, stony  sidehill at Indian Arm, he had  been struck by a sliding boom-  stick kicked free by the haulback  and hurled into a rockpile. The  severity of his resultant injuries  that included a borken leg,  smashed ribs and a torn-open  stomach, kept him in hospital  for four months and convalescing  for a year. Despite the accident,  he still proposed to resume logging until he ran into Ron and  the others. Barry helped them on  the construction of the bar and  in the end, was invited to join  the team. Two other Woss  'lifers', Brad Pelligreh and Art  Legion is one of those Babbitts  who thinks up slogans for the  tourist board, one of the middle-  aged mindless types in favour of  money, and progress with a capital P. As the hearing goes on,  and the dead witnesses are materialized in place it becomes obvious ,+that none of ;��� them think  much of the city in its present  form. Capt. Vancouver says:  "I rather like the sweep of fir  and cedar. Your city? Sir, I  can't see why we need her." The  Salish Chief, the same who met  Vancouver on his arrival, doesn't  think much of the place either.  His eloquence approaches, at  times, pure poetry, as he describes the way of life that was  ruined by the coming of the white  man: "There was more, a some-  thing-I do not know-/ A way of  life that died for yours to live./  We gambled with sticks, and  storms, and wives, but we did  not steal./ The Chief my father  spoke to the people only what was  true...Each had his work, and all  made certain each was fed./  It was a way."  Gassy Jack Deighton appears  a little later on. In the stage  directions, Birney describes. Jack  as he pictures him: "He is intended to have the charm of the  mild psychopath whose gabbiness  is based on genuine adventures  in his more youthful - and less  alcoholic days." Jack is garrulous to the point of incoherence,  spinning'endless tales, but when  the others can confine him to  the point, it turns out that he  doesn't care much for the city  either. Here are his observations  on the present-day pubs:   "eigh,  Stewart's sister, Robin also joined  the group and were sent to bartending school to learn that end  of the business. While waiting  for their license to come through,  Ron and the others attempted to  start a side-business called Burl  Art, featuring bowls and tables  made from cedar burls. They  were supplied the wood by Camp  Woss fallers but the idea failed  to catch on. The pub however,  proved an instant success from  the moment it opened its doors  on Christmas Eve 1976.  So now its last weekend. I'm  sitting in the place with my partner and fellow sidehill alumnus,  Rocky Zantolas. We're shooting  the breeze with Ron, Roger,  Barry, Art and a couple of fallers  from Woss, one of whom, Len,  also draws a humorous logging  strip in the B. C. vein called  Whlskeyjack. The beer's flowing  steadily and the logs are piling  up around the table like cord-  wood. We're discussing the possibility of making a full-length  logging movie that will be truly  authentic. Roger's saying how  they used to quote my poems on  the rigging. I'm saying "Aw  shucks" and "Oh really", gratified to have fans who are also  real loggers. But dammit, I'm  just as much a fan of theirs. It  isn't your ordinary average  brush-ape who can stagger off  a mountain in one piece and set  up a deal like this. Horatio Alger  strikes again. And I'm thinking  how I'm going to write supportive  things about them and log a lot  more hours in his highly-congenial place. The Molly Hogan is  definitely my kind of pub.  In case anyone reading these  words might care to inspect this  unique establishment for them-  " selves, it's located at 41st Avenue  and Knight Road. End of the  Lifelog's first neighbourhood pub  commercial and Bottoms Up.  ye 've pubs bigger nor icebergs  now, lad, but they're as cold to  t' spirit, man, and nowt bein  droonk but wish-washy cocktails  that wouldna get a flea happy..."  Things don't look good for  Vancouver. Mr. Legion is the  only one there is to defend it,  and he becomes more and more  odious as the hearing continues.  The arrival of Mrs. Anyone saves  the day. Unlike Legion, or any of  the rest, she lives in the city,  she not only lives there, but is  very much alive. From the  moment she enters there is a  positive, living thing to be said  about the city. She airs out  the musty basement with her  presence, affirming the life of  real people, who enjoy their  sentience, who actually make the'  city. She wrestles the defence  away from Legion's overreaching  digits, and finally pushes him into  the dematerializing machine.  "Pots and pans and Chambers of  Commerce,/ Roosters, boosters,  chisel and cheese-cake-/ SHOO!"  she chants, and in he goes. She  then ends the meeting, collects  the key from the clerk and tells  everyone they can go home. The  judgement on the hearing is, of  course, suspended.  This is a witty, wonderful,  satiric little play, and probably  one of the best pieces of theatre  that will be published in Canada  this year. After waiting this long,  perhaps Birney will finally get  the satisfaction of seeing his work  more widely produced.' It's  dangerous, this play, the way all  good theatre should be, but maybe we're brave enough for it  now.  by Maiyanne West  This week CBC radio visits  the Fanner Market in St. John,  N.

On the program are three movies  and a music and poetry presentation. The first of the movie  presentations sees Clint Eastwood returning to the screen in  the role of Harry Callahan, first  met in the movie "Dirty Harry".  In this, the third in the movie  series Dirty Harry faces a vicious  group of terrorists who have the  city of San Francisco at their  mercy until Harry takes them on  with his famous .44 magnum.in  a series of violent gun battles.  The movie is The Enforcer and  it will play the Twilight from  Wednesday through Saturday,  April 20-23.

The  companion featurette to Never a  Dull Moment stars Donald Duck  and is entitled The Three Cabal-  Ieros. Both films are filmed in  technicolour.  Bert Reynolds directs and stars  in the week's third film, Gator  which will be shown on Sunday  through Tuesday, April 24-26.

Roberts Creek Auxiliary  On the lovely spring evening  we enjoyed on Wednesday, April  7th, the Roberts Creek Hospital  Auxiliary held their usual monthly meeting. The president, Mrs.  Wilma Rodgers, asked everyone  to take note of dates for coming  special    events.        This    really  brought home to us all the many  activities   which   keep   all   the  associated hospital auxiliaries to  St. Mary's Hospital so busy. Two  events which will be particularly  enjoyed will be the annual Friendship Tea, this year given by the  Sechelt auxiliary, at which all six  hospital    auxiliaries    have    the  opportunity to pause a while and  -^g-        ^^       ~^g  /  uamimmu  WESTERSUND  MAY3SALE  s4J  3E  ^E  enjoy the friendship of their  fellow auxilians; the other was  the warm invitation received from  Mr. Vicurevich, hospital administrator, on behalf of all his  staff to a "Thank You" tea in  June at which time auxiliary  members of ten years standing  will be honoured. It is a pleasure  once in a while to have the opportunity to mingle with the hospital staff and get to know each  other a little better.  The annual Provincial Convention will be held in May but  it was agreed that the Roberts  Creek auxiliary should not be  represented this year. Miss  Chris Ward, president of the coordinating council, will be the  voting delegate for the local  auxiliaries and it was felt the  report she will subsequently present to each auxiliary will be more  than adequate.  Two donations were received  COME MEET  The Hon. Bill Vander Zalm  Minister off Human Resources  Date: Friday, April 29th, 1977  8:30 p.m.  CHATELECH SCHOOL, SECHELT  Buffet Lunch  Admission $2.00  for our Memorial Fund in memory  of Mrs. Mary Jonvick. Members  agreed that this fund should be  used to provide a new book and  magazine rack for the first floor  lounge. The auxiliary recently  purchased two small electric ice  crushers and Mrs. Rodgers  brought one along, so that we  could see how it worked. They  should provide a comfort to postoperative patients.  The auxiliary has been asked  to cater to a dinner on May 7th  and members quickly volunteered  their services. In-hospital volunteers have been active during the  past month in the gift shop,  physiotherapy department and  library, whilst, as always, the  thrift shop workers continue to do  a grand job; helping the hospital  and public alike.  An opportunity is coming along  for the public to show their appreciation to medical staffs. The Red  Cross in conjunction with the hospital volunteers will be holding  a Blood Donor Clinic at- the hospital on April 28th between 2:00  and 7:00 p.m. Please read the  posters for further information.  At St. Mary's more blood is used  than is donated here, so let's see  what we can do about this.  The meeting concluded with  the presentation of an auxiliary  spoon to Mrs. Dolly Koehler,  who will shortly be leaving the  area. Dolly has been an active  member and with her sunny disposition she will be missed by  all. A social half hour followed  with delicious refreshments and  then home through a wonderful  moonlit Sunshine Coast spring  night.  by GERRY WARD  Maintenance as defined by the  dictionary simply means to keep  in good working order. If you  maintain your aquarium properly  it should be clear and biologically  similar to that found in natural  conditions. If your tank turns  cloudy, or your gravel turns black  it could be due to one of the following reasons.  Overfeeding is probably one of  the main reasons for foul water.  When I say overfeeding, I do not  mean the fish are eating too  much, I mean the fish are not  eating all the food put into the  aquarium. Some information I  have says that fancy guppy  breeders will feed their fish up  to a dozen times a day. The  secret is do not feed more than  can be consumed in a few minutes. If you work and cannot be  around your aquarium don't  worry, you only need feed your  fish once a day. I feed mine  twice a day while working and up  to five times a day when I am off.  If you overfeed the left over food  will sink to the bottom usually  lodging away in some inaccessible corner, this allows the bacteria which create black gravel to  multiply rapidly. This will eventually cause such a build up of  chemicals that your fish will all  be killed.  Harmony Hall happenings  Another problem that is not  unusual is overcrowding. When  you buy fish don't figure on them  staying small, allow for growth  and for breeding. If you have too  many fish in your aquarium the  results soon become apparent,  either through disease or all the  fish hanging at the surface.  Green water is a healthy but  very unsightly condition caused  by algae. Algae requires food  and strong light, if you remove  one or the other the algae should  die off. Unfortunately if you remove food your fish all die. You  can try using less wattage light  bulbs and also less hours of light  per day. There are various  chemical cures on the market that  usually work. One that I have  tried with success is Algae Stop,  it comes in pill form and will  stop algae growth. Another is  one grain of potassium permanganate for fifteen gallons of  water.  One other problem that bothers  a lot of people is snails.. If you  are thinking of adding any of the  smaller snails, I would suggest  you forget about it. If they start  laying eggs chances are slim  that you will ever get rid of  those snails. I will go into more  aquarium management next  week.  by Jim Holt  First, let me apologise for a  Boo Boo I made last week. It  concerns certain persons, all business men of our community who  I omitted in my column. Joe  Kampman of the Gibsons Lions  Club reminded me of it and to  these gentlemen I submit my  humble apologies. As I said they  are all businessmen of this community who really gave us the  breaks when we were building the  hall and since that time have  carried on in their usual kindness.  To these gentlemen I offer my  sincere apologies and their names  are as follows: Messrs. Barry  Reeves and Keith Frampton of  Gibsons Building Supplies, Bob  Gilmore of Windsor Plywood, Joe  Connors, Gary Mundell, Doug  Fraser, Rollie Harrison, Bud  Norris and partner of Twin Creeks  Building Supply. I might add  that Barry Reeves and Keith  Frampton supplied free the concrete for our new sidewalk at  the hall. Trusting I have not  omitted any names this time to  these gentlemen I offer my sincere thanks for what they have  done and are still doing to make  this village of ours a better place  to live in.  Thanks also to Joe Kampman  for bringing it to my attention.  Joe is always on the ball and is  always out helping somebody, so  thanks again Joe, and by the way  I got quite a kick out of that newspaper you put up on the wall of  the hall: vis Jim' Holt Discovers  Lost Gold Mine, but I looked at  the date on that paper and it was  1876 which was a few years before my time although I did put  over 24 years in the mines, I  really never discovered one. The  only thing I found in the mines  was plenty of hard work.  Had good news today in regard  to Dick Oliver, he is still sick but  will be home on Saturday, the  16th. He will be going direct to  Vancouver General Hospital  ��� from the airport, I am given to  understand, to have his operation  performed. We all wish him well  and trust that he will be with us  again pretty soon once he has the  operation and is on the way to a  full recovery. We miss him  around here and hope to see him  .real soon.  Carpet bowlers were out again  in full force last Wednesday  and all seemed to be enjoying  themselves. They had a joint  birthday party for about 5 of our  members, and we all wish them  many, many happy returns on  their birthdays. Winn Keerie told  me that she had sent a card to  Dick Oliver from "The Happy  Gang". Nice to see Karl Fraser  back from Hawaii, looking real  good and he told me he gained  four pounds over there, that is  what Hawaii does for you, as  you have nothing to do but lounge  around and eat.  We had a very successful bingo  night on Thursday and it was certainly appreciated by myself and  the other workers. I would like  to thank Fred Mason and Len  Coates for calling back, but Len  don't forget to turn the mike on  next time.  Well our Spring Tea and  Bazaar comes  on   Friday   15th.  I hope it turns'but to be a real  n  success as "everyone  concerned  has been working very hard on  it. I will give you more details  next week on howijit turned out.  I am going to cui, this column  short this time as IVhave a little  poem I would likeV to include,  I put it in my column ;a couple of  weeks ago but they did not have  the space to put it in. VI am sure  we can all derive a lesson from  u\ and make this a fat happier  world to live in. Did you ever  realize' what a smile means to a  person. It is life's greatest commodity, but only you can give it  away. So give a smile to everyone you meet no matter who,  even if you don't know the, person  smile at them and I am\sure you  will make their day a lot brighter.  Kay and I write the odd poem but  these past three years I.haven't  had much chance to write any.  This poem is called A Great Big  Wonderful Smile.  I've scanned this old world over  And travelled many a mile/ What  have I missed my neighbour?/  I haven't" seen a smile./; I've  travelled on the highways/ Of this  our glorious land/ And drifted  on the byways/ Wjthout a helping  hand/ What happened to this  world of ours/ This land of yours  and mine/ Have we run short on  common sense/ And running out  of time/ To those who cannot see  the light/ A tree or flower in  bloom/ Must they forever bear  this plight/ And live a life of  gloom?/ They travel on life's  highway/ mile after dreary mile/  They don't know what it means to  see/ A great big wonderful  smile/ So when you're sad and  feeling blue/ And think life's not  worth while/ Just look up and  face the world/ With a great big  wonderful smile/ Do a good turn  for your neighbour my friend/  And find life is worth, while/  If the only payment you^ get in  return/ Is a great big wonderful  smile.  Pictured above at a dinner hosted by  the Gibsons Lions Club are some of  the people who have been of assistance  to the Lions in their community services.  Also honoured but .'m>t present at the  ��x-?vV>3i  dinner were Doug Fraser of Shoal Development, Roland Harrison of Construction Aggregates, Phil and Terry Raines  and Bud Norris from Twin Creek Building  Supplies.  Elementary School  Red Cross raffle  Anonymous Navy League donor  Mrs. Stella Morrow received  a phone call this week informing  her that a mystery surprise box  would be delivered to the Coast  News office with something for  the Gibsons Navy League. We  at the Coast News were notified  about the expected arrival  and  soon a tall, dark stranger entered  with a very mysterious blue  wooden box, well secured with  brass screws. He departed without a word.  Two days later, Commodore  Ian Morrow and Terry Karkabe  came to investigate and were  delighted to find, upon unscrewing the numerous screws, that the  box contained a replica of the  sailing ship Bluenose. The donor  left no message except that he  was donating the ship to the Navy  Leage because when he was a  boy,  the Sea Cadets had  done  much for him when he needed  their help.  Commodore Morrow said,  "Really, this is a tremendous  gift and on behalf of the Navy  Leage of Canada I accept it most  gratefully."  The only thing the Navy League  now lacks is a clubhouse in which  to display this fine gift.  Mrs. Hume  hampered  The draw for the Gibsons  Legion Ladies Auxiliary hamper  was won by Louise Hume. The  ladies of the Legion Auxiliary  wish to thank all members and  other ladies who kindly donated  the contents ofthe food hamper.  The children of Gibsons Elementary School will shortly be  selling raffle tickets with a view  to raising money to purchase a  wheelchair for the Red Cross.  The tickets will cost 25$ each or  five for $1.00.  First prize in the raffle will be  an electric corn-popper and the  second prize will be an electirc  - ,7 >J��*.^j|  wall clock.

Dogwood Takeout  i  By RICHARD PARKER  I received a letter-in the mail  the other day that made "me think  that the people who sell their  mailing lists, such as Readers  Digest and Time, should include  a psychological profile as well as  a socio-economic one. It's not  that I'm against junk mail in  principle I mean what else would  I start the fire with? But this  particular item really rubbed me  the wrong way and if the people  concerned knew how I felt about  this subject they would have  scratched me off the list without  a second thought.  Needless to say it was an offer,  as they all are, and this one  showed me how to make money  in my spare time by doing other  peoples' tax forms. Now if there  is one thing that has caused me  to break out into a cold sweat at  this time of year ever since I  became a wage earner, its tax  forms. The mere sight of one  with its sub sections, addendums  and multi-purpose information  ***************^*��*******************  guides is enough to drive me into  a blind frenzy. The thought of  having to earn money by filling  "out other peoples' tax forms was  inconceivable. As my dear old  Grannyxused to say, I'd rather  plait sawdust for a living.  My thoughts always turn for  comfort and solace to a friend of  a friend back in the U.K. as the  only one I knew that ever bucked  the system legitimately. There,  people have been dodging taxes  long before the Bostonians got  around to throwing tea in their  harbour. And the Civil Service  Mandarins have developed the  paper shuffling to a fine art.  Anyway, this fellow somehow  found out that if he queried his  tax file it took approximately 4  weeks for the file to process its  way to the desk of someone prepared to deal with it. Those of  you with a logical mind will see  the answer as he did. A letter  written at the commencement of  the third week caused his file to  *  *  ��  *  ��  ��  *  *  *  *  *  ��  CONTINUING EDUCATION  WEIGHT REDUCTION & MAINTENANCE  PROGRAM  How you can still enjoy food and lose weight.

Co-ordinated by Donna Gaulin, Registered  Dietitian 886-9229  be rotated to the back of the pile  as having a new query. It has the  weird simplicity of Alice in Wonderland. One can visualise this  file like some planet in a strange  orbit growing ever fatter. Every  three weeks a new query added,  none of them ever to see the light  of day again.  I never did find out what  happened and I sometimes- wonder. But the reality tells me like  the old saw. There are two things  certain sure in this world, one is  death and the other is taxes.  And I sometimes think taxes have  got the edge.  Editor's Note: Columnist Richard  Packer Is ostensibly the sanest  and quietest of our three contributors who contribute this  column. I mean I never have to  chase down onto the wharf or  np into his kitchen for his column  like I do with Karkabe. Never the  need for last-minute Imploring  phone calls which Nutland requires. Steady, punctual, quiet,  and unassuming. One of the  racks, in fact, of a harried editor's  life. Picture my consternation, if  you will, when I saw him drive by  last Sunday evening - with a  shaven head adorned only by his  bristling guardsman type moustache. It all had something to  do with a bet lost in the wilds of  Pemberton. Where, oh where,  Is a poor editor to torn for stability  In these frenetic times?  ^"^By: The Gibsons Alternate School ^**^  QUESTION: What do you think of the proposed ferry  schedules and the layoffs and do you think  that protest demonstrations like last years  are effective in getting the government to  respond to our needs?  CHARLESTUPPER  I think any demonstration  is going to help because if  you don't do anything the  government is going to do  what they want to do so I  think you should get more  people out because you know  they put the fares up and  they're going to cut the service down. We use the  Bowen Island ferry so we're  connected to the ferry in a  way. We don't use the  Horseshoe Bay-Langdale  ferry. Protest. Get more  people than you did last  time. Really put up a stink.  Just don't have any violence  that's all.  DAVID KYDD  Well I think protests are  probably effective, probably  the only real effective way of  getting any sort of action  from the government. I  don't know about the layoffs, I'm not employed by  the ferries corporation, I  guess it's a way of cutting  down like everything else,  cutting back to the bone  which the government has  a tendency to do regardless  of what peoples' needs are.  GWEN MCCAUL  I don't think the protest  last year was very effective.  Actually all they accomplished was holding yp traffic.  The government really didn't  accede to our requests at  all. I find the service very  poor and the food - ha ha -  if that's what they call it,  very bad. I think cutting  a ferry off will hurt everybody, commuters and businessmen. One thing it will  give us is isolation.  DON LOCKSTEAD  The new proposed schedule going into effect on May  18, appears to be all right,  providing that the B.C. Ferry  Corporation can maintain  that schedule. I certainly  ��� haven't had too many people  complain to me about the  proposed schedule, providing as I said, that the  corporation can maintain that  schedule. I feel the corporation is making a mistake in  taking off one of the ferries...  in this case the Queen of  Tsawwawsson. At least 28  jobs will be lost to this area  and we have a 22% rate of  unemployment here at the  moment and that's uncon-  sciounably high. I would like  to see that second ferry left  on this route over the summer and winter months.  About the second part of the  question I feel that people,  if they're really interested,  should take an active part,  and where governments do  not respond to their needs or  desires I think people should  get together and effectively  utilize a lot of things they  have at their command.  First of all you have a federal  member of parliament,  you have provincial M.L.A.'s  you have petitions, you can  write letters, and you can  ' let people know. Unless the  ���situation is really drastic I  don't care too much for the  violent type of situation but  peaceful protest, yes.

Mrs. L. Labonte thanked  the speakers and the ladies of  the Gibsons United Church.  The offering of $154.00 will be  sent to the Missionary and Service Department of the United  Church for use wherever the need  arises.  Mrs. L.

ALL HEAVY STEEL  CONSTRUCTION  BRICK LINED  One Hundred Year  Guarantee  886-2808 -i*-".-.**--_T'��� -?  Eastern  Star  -by Margaret Hauka  7 It was a happy and productive  year for the Members of the Mt.  Elphinstone ., Chaper    65    OES  ;under the leadership, of; Worthy  iMatrol Mary Steele. The high re-  ���gard in which she and her Worthy  Patron Ted Shaw share was very  eyident   in   the   addenda   their  officers   presented   in   musical  form.   The tribute paid in verse  .written by Grace Cumming PM,  ; and finally the singing of Dear  Hearts   and  Gentle   People   by  Mrs. Edna Jure PM.   All added  ;to the spirit of happiness felt by  ���everyone. The officers presented  their Worthy Matron and Worthy  Patron with their gifts of love,  then a short pause while their  officers formed and held an arch  of fans for them to pass under as  they  retired from  the  Chapter  room.   A recess was called while  preparations were made for the  installation of the new  Worthy  Matron, Worthy Patron and their  officers for the ensuing year.  The same feeling of happiness  and goodwill was present as the  . Worthy Matron Elect Mrs. Mary  Gordon and her officers entered  the Chapter room escorted by  ' the Installing Marshal Val  Michaud.  .; Installing Officer Bea Rankin  PM, Assistant Installing Officer  Phyllis Parker PM, ably assisted  by Alice Brooke PM, (Installing  Chaplain) Eleanor White (In-  staling Organist) and Christine  Anderson PM, (Installing Warder) conducted the installation of  the officers in a dignified and impressive ceremony, stressing the  true meaning of the order, and  the deep obligation and responsibility which is theirs when  assuming office.  ��� It was an emotional and special  moment when Worthy Matron-  Elect Mary Gordon was installed  into office by her mother, Mrs.  Phyllis Parker PM and charter  member of Mt. Elphinstone. This  gracious lady also installed Mr.  John Donnelly PP as Worthy  Patron and then returned the  gavel of her late husband Mr.  Jim Parker to Mrs. Bea Rankin  to use for the remainder of the  installation. At the conclusion  of the ceremonies Mary Steele  sang "Just a Closer Walk with  Thee'' in tribute to Worthy Matron Mary Gordon. A gavel especially made by -Mr. William  Fraser for the WM- was presented  to. her'by' his wife Edith Fraser  PM. On completion of the various  tributes, Mary Steele presented  j|he Metcalfe Jewel of office to  Mary Gordon to wear for the  ensuing year. At this time Mrs.  Bessie Shaw, PM, congratulated  Mary Steele on her successful  term and presented her with her  t*ast Matron's jewel. Mrs.  Eleanor White presented her  father Ted Shaw with his fifth  year Past Patrons bar and told  him how proud she was of him.  Both Worthy Matron Mary  Gordon and Past Matron Mary  Steele thanked the officers of the  past year for their loyalty and  congratulated them on the performance of their various offices.  They wished the officers of the  coming year a happy time and  appointed officers are: Betty  Brown, Helen Grisack PM,  Emily Quigley PM, Muriel  Eggins, Shirley Forshner, Zoe  Eades PM, Lydia Hall, Caryl  Cameron, Lillian Brooks, Mabel  Donnelly, Dorothy Ackerman,  Lila Head,  Carol Tyson,   Doris  Coast News, April 19,1977.  11  TRAVELLING  TO THE  SUNSHINE COAST?  *******   ������  Why sit in a line-up  when you can have a  car waiting for you at  Langdale?  ******* 7  For Reservations  v     Phone:  Sechelt - 885-3277  Vancouver - 688-1484  Vancouver Airport  278-3941  Some of the 'Candy-stripers' who were  honoured  recently for their assistance  Aitchison PM and William  Fraser.  When the new officers had retired the members and visitors  entered the social room for a light  lunch. This room was decorated  with special floral arrangements  of camellias and japonica. A blue  backdrop with the star, dove,  crescent and maple leaf on it complemented the decorations and  the strategically placed birds in  cages and small vases of spring  flowers added to the special  evening. The bouquet of red  roses, a gift from her family to  Mary Gordon WM, held a place  of honour at the head table where  the beautifully decorated Eastern  Star cake was centered. An evening of good cheer, renewed  friendship and talk was enjoyed  by everyone-and-so another chapter has started for Mt.

EATHEART-Y  By Donna Gaulin R.D.  It is hardly a profound observation that our lifestyle has become more and more sedentary  over the years. We tend to eat  more than we need, exercise  less than we. should, smoke,  drink and grab fast, convenient  meals.  Food has been said to be the  way to a man's heart. But look  at the facts: Recent Canadian  statistics show that heart attacks  and strokes are the major cause  of death in 49% of men over the  age of forty. The incidence in  women is only slightly less.  While diet is certainly' not the  whole answer to avoiding heart  attacks, it is a very important  consideration. Among the more  dangerous elements in our foods  are saturated fats and cholesterol.  The higher the level of cholesterol and other fatty substances  are in the blood, the probability  of obstructing the veins and  arteries is increased. If a clot  occurs in the coronary artery,  the result is a heart attack; in  the brain, a stroke.  The narrowing of the arteries  is gradual and is medically termed atherosclerosis. Although  the condition may not give trouble  until middle age, it is known to  begin fairly early in life.  Think about cholesterol. This  is a fatty-like substance manufactured by. the liver as well as  coming directly from animal  food sources. Egg yolks, cream,  butter and organ meats are particularly  high.      Saturated   fats  Hospital auxiliary  by Joan B. Rigby  Thirty members and two guests  met at the Coast-Garibaldi Health  Centre, on Wednesday, April  6th, at 1:30 p.m. for a tasty sandwich and square luncheon. Our  guests were Mrs. Valerie Wilson,  who is the area representative  ofthe hospital auxiliaries of the  Lower Mainland, and Mrs. Ger-  maine Olson, Mrs. Wilson's  secretary. Mrs. Wilson spoke  briefly, encouraging auxilians to  accept the responsibility of an  executive position not only in  their own auxiliary, but also on  the area level. She also urged us  to attend convention in May,  with the idea in mind of what we  can put into it. We can exchange  ideas with other auxiliaries, and  form strong friendships.  We were reminded of the Hospital Society meeting 7:30 p.m.  Wednesday, 20th of April in the  Sr. Citizen Hall, Sechelt. A workshop on Parliamentary Procedures was brought to our attention.  We, with the other five auxiliaries, have been invited to tea  by the Board of Trustees and  the staff of St. Mary's Hospital,  June 26th. Gladdie Davis reported four and a half tables of  bridge on March 28th. Miss  Thatcher reported sending sympathy card and get well card  during March. Annie Metcalfe  reported that 6 members spend  21 hours in extended care, hosting a double birthday party on  March 14th. Jean Longley donated two beautiful corsages to  the birthday ladies. Gentlemen  are now welcome to join the auxiliary. Men patients will be happy  to have one of their own give  them some of the attention they  have hitherto had only from the  ladies;.it will be a treat for them  to engage in some man-talk.  Oney DeCamp reminded us of  13th, outlined a delightful menu.  Tickets are now on sale. Ticket  price remains the same a^ last  year - no inflation - so come and  enjoy an unusual meal.  We look forward to the Award  Night, for our Candystripers, at  6:30 p.m. April 15th. Our May  meeting will feature a film, called  Decision, about self-breast examination. The public is cordially  invited at 2:15 p.m. at the Coast  Garibaldi Health Centre, on May  4th. Our regular meeting time is  still 1:30 p.m.  Library  Among the new titles, on the  shelves of Gibsons Public Library  these days are several new fiction  selections.     Included are  Ceremony of the Innocent, by Taylor  Caldwell; A Plague of Demons by  John Creasey; Storm Warning by  Jack   Higgins;    The    Wine    of  Astonishment  by   Rachel   MacKenzie; Clouds of Witness ��� The  Unpleasantness at  the   Bellona  Club by Dorothy  Sayers;  Slapstick by Kurt Vonnegut.  On the non-fiction shelves, one  new title is Shipwreck ��� The  Strange Fate of the Morro Castle  by Gordon Thomas and Max  Morgan Witts.  ATULATIONiS ���  to Jennifer  & Terry Thompson  of TJ's SOUND  on the arrival of  their new hit single  Melanie Jean 7 lbs.2oz.  from the gang  at the Coast News  the paint-in at the thrift shop on  April 17th.   Three ladies worked  ten hours at the shop plus several  hours    collecting,    sorting    and  arranging articles.     Four workers spend 20 hours  helping  in  therapy during March. Vases and  flowers were sent to two hospitalized  members.     A   minute's  silence was spent in honour of  our late auxilia'n, Miss Dorothy  Biggs.    Mrs. Lowther knit five  baby sets to be sold at the gift  shop,  and Mrs.  Enemark,  who  makes   the   afghans   we   raffle,  had her sister visiting from California and Mrs. Alma Stoffersen  knit  six  knee  afghans  for  our  extended care patients.    These  are so colourful, warm and appreciated.   Isobel Leech has volunteered to sew our quilt strips together    during     the     summer,  so we can start quilting in the fall.  A group of us plan on attending  the Thursday session of the area  convention.        Nine    volunteers  worked 22 V2 hours in February  and  ten  worked   25  in   March.  Helen Weinhandl, our convenor  for our Dogwood Luncheon, May  1L��  raise the level of cholesterol in  the blood and are also found in  animal fat products. (Exercise,  I must add, can decrease the  level of unneeded cholesterol.)  You will have noticed the term  "polyunsaturates". Vegetable  oils such as safflower, corn, olive,  sesame, soybean and sunflower  are especially high in polyunsaturated fats. This means  that they will not precipitate  blocks to form in the blood and  that they actually lower the level  of dietary cholesterol in the body.  It is wise to eat twice as many  polyunsaturated oils as animal  fats.  "Hydrogenation" is another  term that you ought to understand. While food processors  attempt to make margarines,  oils, cheeses, peanut butter, etc.  more palatable and convenient,  the process converts many of the  polyunsaturated fats back to  saturated.  So, instead of negating the  effects of cholesterol, hydrogenated products enhance them.  Look for cold pressed oils, buy  only pure cheeses, non-pasteurized peanut butter and try with  oils as infrequently as possible.  ' Vitamin E, according to Wil-  gred Shute, functions as an antioxidant and an antithrombic  agent. As an antioxidant, it  protects fats in the blood from  becoming rancid and looses it's  activity to spare other nutrients.  Vitamin E capsules are readily  available at the pharmacy, health  food store and even in the supermarket. If you do find yourself  concerned about cholesterol,  change your diet and 6-10 mg  or 10 international units probably  will not hurt. Serious anxieties  about cholesterol or heart problems certainly ought to be discussed with your doctor because  vitamin E is not the whole solution.  Good natural sources of vitamin  E are: refrigerated cold pressed  oils, nuts, stone ground grains  and fresh wheat germ.  Lecithin is another friend of  the fat family. It is a powerful  emulsifier so that it reduces the  size of fat particles in the bloodstream obviously helping to prevent or treat hardening of the  arteries and high levels of cholesterol. There also is a factor in  lecithin which apparently improves the usefulness of vitamin  E. It is supplied in all natural,,  uncooked oils and to a small degree by egg yolk and liver.  The B. C. Heart Foundation  recommends moderate changes  in daily eating habits for a  healthy heart.  1. Eat no more than three egg  yolks a week.  2. Limit your use of organ meats  and shellfish.  3. Eat lean meat, fish and skinless poultry and restrict the use  of luncheon variety meats.  4. Avoid deep fat frying.  5. Use skimmed milk or low fat  milk and cheeses.  6. Use liquid vegetable oils.  What   about   general   health  habits? The most common risk  factors are hypertension (high  blood pressure), smoking, high  blood fats, diabetes, emotional  stress and last, but not least,  lack of exercise.  It has been my therapeutic  counselling experience that I get  the most co-operation from a person who has just survived a heart  attack. Here is the model student. But why risk it? The free-'  dom is to choose and the knowledge is prevention.  4H Club  elections  by Stephen Frisch  During the first meeting of the  club on March 13th, 1977, the  election of officers took place,  they were as follows: President -  Mairi Robertson, Vice-President -  Stephen Rhodes, Secretary -  Margaret Kitson, Treasurer -  Karl Johnston, 'Ways & Means -  Frank Chamberlin and Stephen  Frisch.  On the 31st of March the club,  had its first field trip to farms in  the Fraser Valley to see how large  milk producing farms operate  and to learn the art of judging  Jersey cows and what finer points  to look for in a good show cow.  The farms visited were: Bella-  vista, Fairlawn, Regislawn, and  Graymar Farms.  The final highlight of the trip  was when the children picked out  their own calves that they would  be working with for this season's  project. A good and full trip was  had by all members and it was a  good start to this summer's project. The members are now  eagerly awaiting the arrival of  their animals.
