Bouchard outlines ne|w ferry schedules  "Here's your new proposed schedule.   How does it affect  * your lifestyle?''  These were the words of Bill Bouchard of the  , \B. C: Ferry Corporation at a meeting with the committee from  the Sunshine Coast and Powell River held in Egmont, Tuesday,  - April 5th, to discuss the ferry service.  The proposed schedule  shown to the committee for the first time just over a month  before its planned adoption was identical to one described in the  Coast News on March 22nd. 7  ^ The proposed summer schedule which it is intended will take  effect on May 16th is given in full on page three of this news-  psfcper along with the questionnaire suggested by Bouchard to  ; pzovide opportunity for the people of the Sunshine Coast to  have input.  It appeared at the Egmont meeting that the pressed new schedule was presented to the local committee as  .a fait accompli.   The only apparent room for change is in a  couple of minor points involving the time of the first ferry in  the morning and the ferry affecting homeward-bound com-  -   nifuters from Horseshoe Bay in the^ afternoon. .   The major  'surgery which sees only one boat based at Langdale with the  'summer schedule supplemented by four runs daily from ships  ofthe Horseshoe Bay-Nanaimo run is seen by the ferry corporation to be both justified and inevitable.

Gibsons Chamber elects executive  Over thirty local business  people attended a meeting called  oh Wednesday, April 6th, to elect  an interim executive for the Gibsons Chamber of Commerce. The  meeting was. chaired by Jon  McRae of Gibsons Realty who  welcomed those present to. the  second inf^^,f6Ymative rneet7  ing of thtflwbsons Chamber. ~  After the reading of the minutes ofthe organizational meeting  held on March 23rd, Bruce Gamble of the Royal Bank reported  on behalf of the nominating com  mittee which had been selected  at that meeting. The names of  those who had agreed to run for  office were distributed and the  election of officers held.  Elected as interim-President  was Jon McRae; Vice-president  of the interim executive was  lifu^TGlfiible; ''WanJyrin'kanni-^  ger was named Secretary; and  Phil Gordon took the position of  Treasurer. The Board of Directors named to support the executive included Duncan Campbell,  Bob Reid, John Smith, Richard  Macedo,    Ken    Crosby,     Blair  Kertnet, Jerry Kirsch, and Ken  DeVries.  In thanking those present for  their support, interim-President  McRae said that, given the support of the membership, the  Gibsons Chamber of Commerce  can make a major contribution to  the community:' A membership  drive will be begun immediately  and Bob Reid will lie in charge of  drawing up the constitution and  by-laws. It is hoped that this  work will be completed by the end  of May, at which time a permanent executive will be eleeted.

"It's a dead horse," Mr.  Pazdzierski told council, referring  to his Pazco Fibreglass property.  Recently an unlicenced body shop  has been operating on the premises and council haye been trying  to close it down now that the  property has been rezoned and  will have to conform with future  patterns set for the rest of Gib-  sons. Mr. Pazdzierski said that  he hadn't known the business was  operating without approval and  asked council for advice on the  best way to handle the situation.  A meeting has been arranged  with Bob Buchan, the village  planner, for the 725th of this  month.. ���������'.'{  ������: .Representing the G.H.B.A.  and Integrated Designs, Terry  Karkabe arranged a meeting with  the planning committee this  month to discuss the future development of the bay area.

From his  presentation it was not clearly  understood by council which part  of the structure would be designated as the rear and what would  be classed as the side: Before  construction can go ahead this  distinction would need clarification,, as the property borders  on a laneway and the planning  bylaws give different construction  clearances depending on the section of the building adjacent to  the right of way. Mr. Doug  Roy, the planner, is on. holiday  until April 15th but will try to  arrange a meeting to discuss  Mr. Killam's problem before the  next council meeting.  A highway exchange was given  first and second readings. This  would involve the unpaved  stretch on the road to the arena  being exchanged for a road to be  constructed on the present right  of way from, the end of Trail Bay  Road to the ice rink.  On business arising from the  correspondence, Mr. Watson  said that he and Mr. Whittaker  had been to Victoria and discussed swimming pools and other  recreation topics with Mr. Bawlf  and Mr. Moore and understood  that there was a possibility of  60% financing assistance from  the province on approved projects. Gibsons has finances to  build a roofless pool and will opt  into the regional recreation function.  The Youth Programme for  summer work was brought up  by Alderman Thompson, he felt  that the past two years had been  a disaster, and that one of the  reasons could be the wages paid  did not attract the most industrious workers; A figure of $2.75  per hour had been proposed but  before finalizing the hourly rate  council will look into the wages  paid by other local governing  bodies.  In reply to a letter from the  Castlegar Council asking for a  review of the roles of. Regional  Boards, Alderman Thompson  said that regional boards had  originally been for planning but  had since spread out into other  things and it was time for a new  look into it's functions.  by Rob Corlett  A visit to the capital of this  nation is a lesson in double standards. Our legislators have been  urging us, have they not, to tighten our belts; we have heard  much about the need to cut government spending; cutbacks in the  Unemployment Insurance have  taken place; only token increases  have been available for old age  pensioners; have we not heard  much about the need, to conserve  energy? And yet a visit to Ottawa  reveals to western eyes a city  bathed in luxury and expensive  ritual with little evidence of the  need for economy.  Upon arrival at the Ottawa airport on our recent visit to Ottawa  We decided to take a cab to the  hotel. The cabs were the first  givaway to the elegance of the  city. Instead of your ordinary  yellow cab, we found that limousines were being used as taxis.  The hotel itself gave us , our  first glimpse of how the energy  crisis was being handled. Along  with every federal building we  entered it was obviously overheated. We never stopped sweating during our entire stay in  Ottawa. The temperature inside  the buildings never seemed to  drop below 80 degrees F. What  is really puzzling is how they can  tell us to turn the heat down and  not comply themselves. Of  course, maybe they did. Federal  buildings may have been heated  to 85 or 90 F in the past.  Everyone knows that excessive  heat tends to have serious effects  on a person's ability to think.  Maybe this is the reason such  long, drawn-out gobbledy-gook  has become the accepted standard of our politicians instead  of clear thinking, intelligence,  and conciseness.  The elegance ofthe Parliament  Buildings themselves was beautiful to see and was very enjoyable until we stepped inside.  The ostentatious and. excessive  elegance costs the taxpayers  bundles of money. Who is it designed to impress?. There seemed  to be guards for every fifteen  feet of corridor. The dry-cleaning  staff probably outnumbered the  guards. All metal inside the  buildings was brass and in every  instance appeared to have just  been polished; the ashtrays were  always empty and never even a  speck of dirt appeared on the  floors.  All the furniture we saw  seemed factory fresh. The only  furniture we saw that had a used  look about it was parked in hallways, destination unknown. I  would be more than pleased to  have some of that reject furniture  in my house.  Any of you planning to visit  Ottawa had best be aware of the  dress standards that are imposed.  In order to enter certain parts of  the parliament buildings dress  shoes, pants, and shirt and tie  are not good enough. You must  wear a "suitable jacket" even  if you are in danger of collapsing  from the heat. Even a leather  dress jacket is suspect.  One place where proper attire  is demanded is the M.P.'s private  dining lounge which, of course,  is heavily subsidized by the taxpayers. At one time the lounge  was restricted to M.P.'s, Senators  and their guests. At that time  the press raised such a fuss about  the subsidized meals that they  were bought off by being allowed  use of the dining room, so the. taxpayers are now subsidizing the  meals for the press also.  The one person we talked to  who appeared to be honest,  forthright, and concise was the  Minister of the Environment,  the Hon. Romeo Leblanc. I  wonder if it could be coincidental  that his office was a good 10  degrees F cooler than the rest of  the parliament buildings?  At the top of the heap we have  a millionaire prime minister who  keeps telling us that we have to  tighten our belts. He seems to be  just the tip of the iceberg of  hypocrisy. It seemed to us at  every level there is self-indulgence, ostentation, and waste in  a government which keeps telling  the Canadian people that they  must expect to put up with hardships for the good ofthe nation.  Bouchard produced two pages  of statistics at the Tuesday meeting which seemed designed to  head off any objections on the  part of committee members to  the proposed major scheduling  change. "Route 3, Langdale is  over-serviced," said Bouchard,  pointing to statistics which purported to show that the utilization  of ferry capacity on the Horseshoe  Bay Langdale run was only 12.8%  of capacity in January of 1977 and  16.4% of capacity in March.  "In 1976 we carried a total of  611,480 passengers on this route,  which equals the lift-off capacity  for two months. Bouchard offered other statistics which  showed that the Horseshoe Bay  Langdale run has only just over  half of the space utilization, that  takes place on Route 1, Tsawwa-  wsson-Schwartz Bay.  ��� Committee member, Bill  Edney, initially objected strongly  to. Bouchard's statistics but  failed to get support from other  committee members. Edney  wanted to know more about the  traffic flow patterns rather than  the all-encompassing percentage  utilizations but no such information appeared available.  7 In another batch of Ferry  Corporation statistics it was revealed that more than ten thousand fewer vehicles used the ferries on the Horseshoe Bay-  Langdale run in June of 1976 after  the fare increase as compared to  June of 1975. Committee members made the point to Bouchard  in Egmont that the business community on the Sunshine Coast  was being hurt by reduced traffic caused by the increase in  ferry fares. Almost thirty-five  thousand fewer vehicles travelled  *��n^he^H^5Ses^  run between June and December  of 1976 as compared to 197S1  The figures for the years preceding 1975 show a steady yearly  increase. "Weekend residents  can't afford to come over here,"  said a committee member.  "Summer residents with families  living here and the father commuting are being discouraged by  the high tariffs. All of these  things affect our revenues."  Committee member Don Pearsall asked Bouchard if the Ferry  Corporation had made the decision to make the changes or if it  had come from the Ministry of  Transport. Bouchard in reply  pointed out that the Minister of  Transport, Jack Davis, was the  Chairman of the Board of the  Ferry Corporation.  Committee member Frank  West when contacted by the  Coast News after the meeting  offered the opinion that while the  new schedule may look beautiful on paper ii may well prove  to be disastrous in practice.;  It depends for its functionality  on the ferries adhering closely to  schedule throughout the summer  on both the Horseshoe Bay-Lang-  dale and the Horseshoe Bay-  Nanaimo runs, West pointed out,;  and previous experience with  summer traffic has indicated that  this does not always happen.   7  On the question of schedule-  keeping, experienced ferry personnel nave pointed out' that a  fully-loaded large ferry needs  between twenty-five minutes and  thirty minutes to effect a turnaround when travelling With  maximum loads. The new schedule allowes for a ten-minute  turnaround. When queried on  this point Bouchard said that the  difference would be made up by  faster travel by the ferries between the ferry terminals.  MLA Don Lockstead in a telephone conversation re-iterated  his concern over the loss of  twenty-eight jobs for the Sunshine. Coast occasioned by the  changes in the ferry schedule!  These jobs lost are estimated to  mean a loss of between a quarter,  of a million and a half million  dollars in payroll for the area. X.X.  Bouchard maintained that thV  proposed schedule would  meet.  the heaviest traffic ever recorded  ^p��^e:;tt^  run which was during the year of  1975.   7''It represents the7 most  jift'-off capacity ever available for  the run," said Bouchard, "with  thirteen daily sailings each with  a maximum load of 192 vehicles.''  A written question handed Bouchard about the feasibility of a  triangle   run   in    the    morning  should   it   be I necessary,   went���  unanswered. ���������**?���'>.

Ferry Statistics  \. Benjamin Disraeli once said that there  -are lies, damned lies, and statistics.  -The thought comes to mind on the heels  ;bf the most recent meeting of the local  t committee with Bill Bouchard, Assistant  ^Traffic Manager of the B. C. Ferry Cor-  "poration. The ferry corporation has the  "figures and the records and no doubt they  ^are based on actuality but there remain  <some serious areas of concern.  > Much of the punch of Bouchard's  "argument for reduced ferry availability  ��� for the Sunshine Coast are based on percentage  utilization  of available   space.  ;So far so good. There is some room for  questioning this type of statistic inas-  : much as they are derived at a time when  ; larger ferries have been made available  ; and traffic has been severely diminished  :by the higher ferry fares. If you put on  * bigger boats simultaneously with a yir-  \ tual 100% raise in fares you will find that  jyour utilization figures are low. When  : bigger boats arrive at the same time as  there are thirty-five thousand fewer  ; vehicles using them because of high  ; rates, you will find utilization low. The  : question of whether the best interests of  :the  Sunshine  Coast are  being  served  ��� well or ill by the ferry corporation are not  \ in the least answered by the production of  ; these convenient figures.'  The fact remains that the function of  the ferry service is to move goods and  people to the areas they serve in such a  fashion as to encourage the economic  well-being ofthe areas in question. That  the huge increases instituted last year  have been detrimental to the traffic flow  to the Sunshine Coast and  Vancouver  Island even the corporation's own figures  confirm.   On the heels of the drop in  traffic occasioned by the huge rate increases and using that drop as justification the ferry corporation now proposes  to remove twenty-eight jobs from the payroll of this area, or a quarter of a million  dollars, and to have us go through a half  of every day throughout the summer with  a ferry sailing only once every two hours.  They maintain that the new service will  more than adequately meet our needs.  But there must surely be some foreboding in the minds ofthe people of the Sunshine Coast.   Are we to add congestion  and delay to the high cost of getting here?  In the final analysis only time will tell  whether the ferry corporation has devised  a master plan which will make major  economies in its budget and at the same  time provide a service better than has  ever been available before.   There is at  the moment, it would appear, room for  some serious doubt. That the economy of  the Sunshine Coast has already been hurt  by the ferry corporation's changes and  may well be hurt still more severely in  future there is absolutely no doubt whatsoever.  Gibsons pool  l The deadline for beginning construction on the Gibsons swimming pool is  .July 9th and the controversy about the  size is still going on.  The three choices are: (a) A 24'x60'  covered pool, (b) A 25 metre indoor  pool, (c) A 25 metre outdoor pool.  The initial cost of the pool is not the  main concern, what does present a problem is the annual deficit incurred by the  different sizes.  A 24'x60' (approximately 20 metres)  pool would run at a $25,000. estimated ,  loss, whereas the indoor 25 metre one  could be as high as $100,000. A 25 metre  outdoor pool however, would be roughly  the same as the smaller indoor one,  since it would only be open for part of  the year.  In the words of Alderman Goddard,  "If you can't afford a Cadillac, you buy a  Volkswagen," referring to the feeling  that a smaller pool would be within the  budget.    This is good economic sense,  but, pace out 24' x 60' and visualize  it as a swimming pool servicing the local  and regional area, and you will see that  we would soon be swimming over the top  of each other.  A large covered pool would be ideal,  not only would it give swimming space,  it would also make it possible for Gibsons  to host swim meets. Unfortunately,  as Alderman Goddard rightly stated,  we simply cannot afford it, even if we  join the Regional District Recreational  Function and receive operating funding  from it.  The only sensible course of action  seems to be, since the initial cost is not  the major hurdle, is to go ahead with a  25 metre outdoor pool and, if sometime  in the future it becomes economically  possible to carry the cost of having it  open all year, then cover it, and we will  have a facility which will serve the community well in the future.  from the files of Coast News  'fememberWhen  5YEARSAGO  Mayors of Gibsons and Sechelt were  defeated in their efforts to block the  passage of an Area E (Gibsons rural)  advisory planning committee report on  the latest Gibsons bypass route.  10 YEARS AGO  ~ Wally Peterson had a close call while  driving his truck down the highway when  the axle of his truck apparently slipped  out of the rear wheel differential.

Peterson  Musings  John Burnside  It's the time of year when all  gardeners begin to develop the  symptoms of hoeitis and trowel  itch. In thousands of garden  plots all over the west coast men  and women are getting into their  gardening gear and preparing  for the annual battle to create  order out of the abundant chaos  of nature. I myself am something  of a non-combatant in this war;  a somewhat'nornadic arid unset-  ' tied life style in recent years has  removed me from close contact  with any piece of the earth, which  I suspect is something of a sad  loss. There was a time, however,  when I had a fairly good grounding, if you'll pardon the pun,  in the gardening arts.  The first work apart from delivering papers that I ever did was  in a nursery garden in Southern  Scotland. I worked there on  weekends and on school holidays  for about a couple of years just  before I came to Canada in 1954  and in the course of the time  picked up quite a few things. As  a matter of fact the very first  morning I went to work with  lily-white and completely un-  soiled hands at about the age of  fourteen I picked up more than I  had bargained for.  It was much the kind of Saturday in April that this one is as  I write this. It was windy and it  was wet and it was damp and  cold. I shivered gloomily as I  rode my bike down to my first  morning's work. The nursery  was called Dale's Nursery and it  supplied the goodies for Dale's  Flower and Vegetable Show  which still operates on the corner  of Mauchline Cross under the bay  window from which a covenanter  was hanged at the time, as they  would still say in Ireland, of the  religious troubles - perhaps a  couple of hundred years ago .7  The shop remains but old man  Dale is no longer with us. He was  a crusty, difficult, old character  but good-hearted and generous  withal.  When I arrived dripping and  gloomy on that first morning he  buoyed my spirits up no end when  he said, "Well, I guess, it'll be in  the greenhouse this morning."  In the greenhouse. Visions of  warmth and dry and perhaps the .  odd, decent little tomato plant  to relate to. I was delighted.  He took me into the greenhouse  and showed me a huge pile of  little dahlia pots. On the other  hand he showed me an equally  huge pile of pig dung. ' 'Right,''  he said, "we want the pig dung in  the dahlia pots." I looked at  the pile of dung with some misgivings. "O.K.," I said bravely.  "How do I do it?" "Oh, you just  pick it up and put it in." So  saying he picked up a piece of  dung and stuffed it into a dahlia  pot. My stomach has ever been  somewhat volatile and I was conscious of keeping a rigid control  of it as I picked up the first piece  of stray dung - my introduction  to the world of work - and dropped it quickly into the nearest  pot. "No, no," said old man  Dale, "you have to press it into  the'bottom of the pot like this."  He.demonstrated again, watched  a couple of further' efforts on  my part, grunted his satisfaction,  and left me alone with the pig  dung and the dahlia pots. It  wasn't too bad at first. There1  were little bits of straw and stuff  that I could relate to but the  deeper into the pile I go the more  unadulterated it became and if  you have in your life avoided  close and prolonged contact  with pig dung I advise you to  continue to do so. In my experience only hen pen smells  worse and not by much.  Of course, it wasn't all pig  dung and dahlia pots. I survived  my first day, though it took me  half an hour to wash my hands  to have a ten-minute sandwich  break, and went on to more  pleasant employments. One of  my great favourites was budding  roses. We sliced the buds of  . flowering roses and inserted them  individually in the stocks of non-  flowering briar roses in a T-  shaped cut in the bark. Then we  bound them in with raffia and  pretty soon where there had been  a bed of briar roses there were  rows of beautiful flowering roses  of a hundred different hues and  scents. To this day I am especially fond of roses. I think my all  time favourite is the beautiful  yellow Peace rose, for appearance  and scent, but so many were  magnificent.  Times were bad  and  money  scarce and old man Dale had a  ; difficult time keeping responsible  and capable hired help. The work  was healthy and fun to do for the  most part but the factories and  the mines could pay more money.  While I was working there he had  a crew of boys about my age who  worked for one shilling and sixpence an hour.   There was Wee  Johnny Sloan who was  a year  younger than the rest of us and  eventually mushroomed to a giant  of a mari.    He was the hardest ���  and most diligent worker.    Skin  Farrell was the same  age  but  had left school at fifteen and was  a full-time working man while the  rest of us were puny, part-time  academics and he lorded it over  us grandly.   He was called Skin  not for any pornographic reasons.  He was one of twin boys called  Skin and Barrell Farrell, and they  were so called because although  they    were    virtually    identical  Barrell was slightly heavier than  Skin.   Andrew Lymburn was the  fourth.   A quiet lad, he went on  to raise racing pigeons.  Christmas trees were a big part :  of our work. We planted them in ;  .the spring time and pulled them \  up for sale at Christmas time.  In between times we kept the ���  grass down around them with the :  aid of sickles which we called in  that part of the world 'hyuks*.  The spelling is purely phonetic  since it's a word I've never seen  written down.  On one occasion we were  weeding strawberry beds on a  dry and windy day. The strawberries were in a field which  looked to be only a field of dry  grass. Skin tossed away a careless cigarette behind him arid a'  grass fire started. ' There was a  few minutes of cheerful good  humour as we attempted to put  it out when suddenly! it was apparent that we could not. It was  suddenly crackling viciously and  sweeping* directly towards the  plantation of Christmas trees  nearby. We struggled to contain  it heroically but were outclassed  entirely. Old man Dale danced  in rage and anxiety uttering  epithets about schoolboys and  fire departments as he watched  the fire.sweep toward his major  cash crop. When the fire truck  did come it came with elan. It  by-passed the gate and roared  along the highway parallel to the  nursery then suddenly plunged  through a tiny gap in the beech  hedge and lurching and spinning  approached the fire frontally  right over the top of the newly  budded rose beds. I took a  second off from the cheering  welcome to steal a look at old man  Dale. He had sunk to the ground  beside his Christmas trees with  his face in his hands rather than  contemplate the mayhem that had  now befallen his roses.  The firemen, however, proved  proficient after the Keystone  Cops nature of their arrival and  they saved the Christmas trees  and eventually dear, departed  Mr. Dale forgave us all. I remember him with fondness and  gratitude. He gave me virtually  all I have acquired of my knowledge of the soil. It may yet stand  me in good stead.  <MSlings & Arrows  J^* George Matthews  Jack Horner, the cowboy Conservative, has been providing us  with yet another in a long line of  object lessons on what the Liberal  Party of Canada is all about. The  poor fellow appears to have been  out on the range so long in the hot  sun that his head has become  hard boiled in his ten gallon hat.  He can't make up his mind to be  or not to be a liberal Conservative  or a conservative Liberal: ; While  the rest ofthe country knows him  as the man somewhere to the  right of Barry Goldwater, his own  inability to make up his mind has  probably doomed his nineteen  year political career.       >.  What exactly does Gentleman  Jack's story . tell us about the  Liberal Party?  First of all, Jack would have us  all believe that only the Liberal  Party has enough national credibility to deal with the problem of  Quebec separatism, and despite  his self professed deep commitment to conservative ideology he  is willing, for the sake of national  unity, to join the Liberals so he  can help bring the country together again. Of course if Pierre  (there's no fool like an old fool)  Trudeau were to reward Jack's  defection with the Transport  Ministry.so much the better; but  Mr. Horner isn't telling us about  that.  If we look a little deeper into  the news reports and remember  back to the Conservative leadership convention we discover that'  Jack's Hamlet routine is nothing  new. He never has had much  time for little Joey Clark, the boy  leader. We find, too, that Jack's  riding is about to be gerrymandered to the point where he will  be hard pressed to retain his seat  in the next election.  In Canadian politics whenever  an ambitious politician has reached an impasse in his career or he  is in trouble'with his own party,  he can always find a home in the  CXVI  Let me not to the marriage of true minds  Admit impediments. Love is not love  Which alters when it alteration finds,  Or bends with the remover to remove:  O, no! it is an ever-fixed mark  That looks on tempests and is never shaken;  It is the star to every wandering bark,  Whose worth's unknown, although his height be taken.  Love's not Time 'sfool, though rosy lips and cheeks  Within his bending sickle's compass come:  Love alters not with his brief hours and weeks,  But bears it out even to the edge of doom.  If this be error and upon me proved,  I never writ, nor no man ever loved.  William Shakespeare  Liberal Party. The Liberal Party  exists under the arrogant assumption that it can represent almost  everybody no matter what their  political hue. The party has captured the great Canadian centre  to the point where anyone who  holds a point of view that is not  held within the party itself, is  considered an incurable extremist, and if by some chance  the incurable' extremist is Able to"  convince at least one other person  that he might have a good idea -  then it's time to ask him to join  the party.  This kind of wishy washy pragmatism is both the great strength  and great weakness of the Liberal  Party of Canada. The great  strength lies in its ability to absorb new policies without ideological trauma. When J. S. Woodsy  worth, that most renowned Gib-  sonite, was able to develop strong  national support for some of the  policies of the C.C.F., the Liberals gobbled them up, pretended  they were theirs and carried on  as if nothing had happened. The  Liberal Party creeps. In times of  national polarization it reaches  out and gathers in the moderates  from both extremes. In times of  national contentment the party  shrinks up to its traditional core  of middle class aspirants to the  upper crust.  The great weakness of the Liberal Party is that in trying to represent everybody it often ends up  representing nobody. The only  guiding philosophy for the party  lies in the assumption that all  nice, reasonable people should  agree with one another and if  they don't then they are not nice,  reasonable people. When one  party tries to speak for and to  everybody it's voice lacks sincerity and credibility. It's  opinions become so broad and all  encompassing that the fear of  hurting one person's feelings  mute the strength and decisive,  character that people expect from.  their politicians. ' !;'  If there is, as we are led to  believe, a place in the Liberal  Party for the likes of Jack Horner  then what is the point of the  Progressive (sic) Conservative,  Party? Is there no place in this  country for a genuine conservative? Is even Jack Horner to be  absorbed into the great, all too  well scrubbed, middle of the!  road? V  Now just where does this leave  Ed Whatisname during all this?  Well, he's out there somewhere  in  the   political   heartland  like!;?

If he ever wakes up onje  morning and discovers it's 1977  then there will be a place in the  Liberal Party for him too. 7  So, predictably, we're lefti  with good old Pierre to lead our  nation out of the economic waste- ���  land into the rich, unseparated  future; and that ladies and gentle-  ment is what the Liberal Party  of Canada is all about.  4 LETTERS to the EDITOR  Legalize Dogs again   Chuff-chuff  Editor:  The provincial courts are a  disgrace! I address the continued  abuse of power by the judicial  system when sentencing marijuana users. By imposing heavy  fines and jail sentences, judges  expose their ignorance of social  changes' and a callous ruthless  attitude toward their fellow citizens. Dozens of studies including  the Federal government's Le  Dain Commission have concluded  that marijuana is not harmful  to society when compared to the  abuse of alcohol and the many  legal drugs that are readily available. In almost all cases these'  studies of the marijuana "problem" have recommended legalization or decriminalization of  marijuana. The federal government has recently stated it's  intention to remove marijuana  offences from the criminal code  and the Prime Minister has indicated an enlightened and  lenient attitude toward marijuana users. And yet the judges  in this province continue to be  repressive and vindictive. If the  law is to protect society, what  .purpose is served by enforcing  outdated laws that have no victim? Legislators and the police  become part of the mindless  persecution that results from  judges passing harsh sentences.  The attorney generals' office  would be more in touch with  reality if marijuana cases never  came to court eliminating a backlog of court cases and freeing  the police to fight crimes that  really do have victims. The situation in our over-crowded jails  could also be relieved if the courts  would only accept the overwhelming evidence.  Revolution is a daily fact all  over the world because governments and their institutions have  not kept pace with the social  changes of the 20th century.  Use of marijuana is a harmless  act that is here to stay. All marijuana problems relate directly to  the laws that restrict its use.  Judges and lawyers are the only  persons to benefit from the campaign against tmarijuana since it1  cannot be related to the very real  economic; and cultural problems  that plague our society. Are we  all to become vicitms of our own  legal system because some  people among us smoke weeds?  If you are interested in supporting the legalization of marijuana  contact NORML at 111 E. Broadway, Vancouver, or phone them  at 873-8371.  R. Watts  Protection  Editor:  I am writing to tell you how  stupid people are about killing  our environment.  We are killing the animals too  much. We have killed every kind  of animal on the earth, mammals,  reptiles, fish, plants and trees.  The animals we don't even know  we're killing by pollution is the  biggest and baddest part. We  make sea otter nearly extinct  with killing them for the pelts we  don't even eat the meat but sell  the pelts for money. The sea otter  helps keep down the number of  sea urchins. The urchins are as  bad as dumping raw sewage into  the ocean because the sewer  destroys the kelp that feeds the  fish. So people should treat  sewer instead of destroying a'  main source of food. We should  also stop polluting the skies because we kill the birds that kill  the bugs. If we kill the birds  the bugs will kill the trees and  the lakes and other bodies of  water would flood, killing the  animals and plants, the bugs  would destroy houses and we  would starve and freeze to death.  Eileen Connor  P.S. There should be a law  against pollution and killing some  kinds of animals.  A.E.G. JUICER  For Juicing Fruits  &  Leafy Vegetables  .Gibsons 886-2936.  Editor:  I live in the vicinity of Pratt  and Chaster, and to describe  the dog's carry-ons in this  area, would be a repetition of  Mr. Vernon's comments. But  here is a new one:  Unfortunately, I have no fence  around my property; and sometime ago, a friend of mine came  to visit me, with his two boys,  aged 4 and. 7. The kids stayed  outside when suddenly, 5 of the  neighbour's dogs came after  them, snarling and barking and  the kids took refuge on top of  my utility trailer in the middle,  of the lot, with all those dogs  carrying on around it.  It would appear that unless we  live in the village of Gibsons, we  can forget the dog catcher -  unless...we join the village, of  course. Clever!  There ought to be a law about  people harbouring more than one  dog - to own 3 or 4 dogs should  constitute a kennel business and  should not be allowed.  I don't have a dog myself,  because out of three neighbouring houses to mine, I ENJOY!?  The grand total of 6 dogs - some  of which bark incessantly - at  birds - any sound. People walking on Pratt - and even at each  other.  What else can I say? Have a  dog catcher that will shoot dogs  on sight? - Detain their owners  in the dog pound, overnight, for  failure to shut up their "best  friends"; and keep the mutts on  their own properties?

Cable Vision   Greenpeace lottery off ers trip  Concern  Editor:  I wish to voice my concern over  an incident which occured last  Monday at Chatelech School.  I arrived at 5:30 with my young  daughter to attend "aerobics  Dancing", a night school class  sponsored by Continuing Education. They gym door was locked  and bore a sign indicating it was  not to be opened until April 11,  due to floor refinishing.  Further investigation found the  teacher, Joanne Giampa, recently  arrived, quickly trying to phone  the rest of her pupils to notify  them of the cancellation.  This is community use of the  schools? Where the night school  teacher does not rate prior notification that her facilites are unavailable.  I think the incident shows a  shocking lack of regard by the  school administrators for the  night school program, particularly for the teachers ofthe program.  I think we should be proud of our  growing night school program  and we should expect it to receive  a similar status to the day school  programs in regard to use of the  school facilities.  Elizabeth Shaw  Gibsons  rate increase  .Coast Cable Vision Ltd. has an  -application for cablevision service and installation rate increases before the Canadian Radio-  Television and Telecommunications Commission which will be  heard in Vancouver on May 3,  ,1977.  The company had originally  applied in March of 1976to adjust  their rates but due to C.R.T.C.  administrative reasons, the application could not be brought to  a public hearing before the May  3,1977 date.  If and when the increases are  approved by the C.R.T.C, the  basic rate for installation of the  first cable outlet in a home would  increase from $15.00 to $25.00.  The company does not propose  an - increase in the installation  fee fpr~second or additional outlets located in the same dwelling.  .Cable service rates would, for  residential subscribers, increase  from $5.50 and $1.25 to $7.00 and  $1.50 for first and additional outlets, respectively.  A company spokesman commented that should the proposed  rates be approved, it would be  the* first time in over seven years  . that an adjustment in such rates  was made.  V J'He further stated that without  these very necessary increases  the company would not be able  to maintain the same standard  of service that subscribers had  grown accustomed to since inception in 1970.

Lockstead reports  It is becoming increasingly  evident that the major goal of  the Social Credit government is  to protect the interests of the  major corporations, at the expense of the small businessman.  This sad fact recently gained  further support when Victoria  N.D.P. M.L.A. Charles Barber  provided evidence in the legislature showing that the number of  bankruptcies in British Columbia  has. risen to a catastrophic level  in the past year.  DON LOCKSTEAD  Drop in and meet your  M.L.A.  Don Lockstead will be  at the following places to  discuss your problems or  just chat:  April 13- Pender Harbour  Realty Ltd., 1-5 p.m.  April 14 - Sechelt Municipal Hall, 1-5 p.m.  ApVil 15 - Gibsons Municipal Hall, 1-5 p.m.  For Information Call:  886-7829  A high proportion of these  bankruptcies have taken place  in one particular type of business:  the independently owned (or  leased) gas station. Over the  past few years, the major oil  companies have taken control of  the retail gasoline market. After  building company-owned self-  service gas stations, these corporations force the independent  station operator out of business.  This means that gasoline prices  are no longer dictated by open-  market competition but, instead,  by the whims of the oil companies  themselves. Another negative  result of this trend is that repair  facilitfes are becoming scarce,  due to gas station shutdowns.  The present government has  continually promised to bring in  legislation which would protect  the independent gas retailer. As  each week passes without legislative action, more and more gas  station operators are being forced  out of business.  A private member's bill, dealing with this subject, has been  introduced in the legislature.  Such bills, however, seldom are  enacted since they represent not  the cabinet's wishes, but the  wishes of an individual M.L.A.

The meeting will be  held at the Veterans Hall at Gambier Harbour.  Representatives from the Islands Trust will be  present to discuss proposed amendments to the  Islands Trust Act.  Sunshine Coast Regional District  Box 800, Sechelt, B.C.  VON 3AO  885-2261  (Mrs.) A. G. Pressley  Secretary-Treasurer  WWI veteran honoured  A few weeks ago in the Vancouver Sun in the column called  Collector's Corner which is written by John Hearne there was a  copy of a hand-written letter received by a returning Prisoner  of War from King George V at  the conclusion of the First World  War. Hearne wondered in his  column if any similar letters  had been received.  Mr. S. P. Jones of 1222 Cochrane Road in Gibsons was also  the recipient of a similar letter  from the then king. Mr. Jones  is not sure why he was singled  out to receive such a letter except that he returned wounded  and was one of the first prisoners  of war to be repatriated.  He was wounded at Ypres  while holding the Hun advance  and captured. When he got to  Germany he was told by a young  German boy in perfect English  while he was lying on a stretcher  on the station platform that he  was going to a camp where they  trained prison personnel. In all  Mr. Jones was in three different  camps, one called Hammel for  the longest period. He escaped  and was sent to work in the salt  mines where he poured boiling  water over his foot to get out of  the mines 4 days before armistice. He remembers Russians*  whipping their wounds with wet  towels so that they would be sent  to the hospital.  Mr. Jones says that the most  beautiful sight he has seen in  his life was the mine-fields  opening to allow the boat that was  bringing him back access to the  English coast.  He came to Canada in 1919,  arriving in Burnaby. He worked  for B. C. Hydro for forty-two  years before moving to Gibsons  six years ago.  Mr. Jones would be interested  in hearing from anyone with a  similar letter. The Coast News  will be forwarding a copy of Mr.  Jones' letter to the Vancouver  Sun.  A visitor to the Sunshine Coast  last week was the star of the  highly-popular C.B.C. comedy  series The King of Kensington,  no less a personage than the king  himself, Al Waxmah. Waxman's  visit was part of a mutual promotional enterprise involving  himself and Bruno Gerussi of the  Sunshine Coast's own Beachcomber series. Part of the promotional material was to be  filmed here and part in Wax-  man's own territory in Kensington market-place in Toronto.  Waxman impressed as being a  warm, congenial, down-to-earth  sort of a fellow. He told the Coast  News that the King of Kensington  was going into its third year this  fall with re-runs running throughout the summer: He took justifiable pride in the fact that his  show was the first Canadian  series to be syndicated in the  United States, which will be starting this fall.  Until Monday of last week  Waxman had been doing promotional work for his series in  Washington State and this week  he will be doing similar work in  Los Angeles and Denver, before  returning to Toronto to be present  at the A.C.T.R.A. awards, where  he is again nominated as Best  Actor in a Canadian series.  Waxman was born in Toronto,  actually right in Kinsington market. In his professional career  he has produced and directed  film in Hollywood, Montreal,  New York, Toronto, London and  Rome, but had been out of acting  for some time before his homecoming to both acting and Kensington in this present series.  'He spoke of the richness of the  experience in having the opportunity to bring together his boyhood roots and his professional  life.  "Everything that can be seen  in Canada can be seen in Kensington," said Waxman. He described Kensington as being a  market-place area in south west  central Toronto which contained  residences, churches, and synagogues in. a rich cosmopolitan  blend.  He is  no stranger to  Bruno  Gerussi, having appeared not too  long ago on Gerussi's other  C.B.C. show, Celebrity Cooks.  When queried about the dish he  had prepared on the show, Wax-  man said he had devised a Kensington casserole for the occasion  which contained every type of  salami he could find in Kensington.  Speaking of both the successful  Beachcombers series and his  own, Waxman said, "It's about  time we in the Canadian entertainment business started exporting the fruits of our labour  rather than our labourers."   He  felt the two successful series  were making a start in this direction.  Coming up in the future for  Waxman, besides work on his  own series, is a directing assignment on the C.B.C. drama series  Side-street. He will also be seen  in a comedy spot in a C.B.C.  Super Special called the Let's  Save Canada Hour. The show  will star Don Harron, who wrote  it, and Yvoh Deschamps. Wax-  man will portray an Archie  Bunker type character in a Cana-  dianized take-off of the successful  American series.     Other future  television assignments include  more promotional appearances  for the King of Kensington show  on the Merv Griffiths and Dinah  Shore shows in the near future.  Musing out the window of the.  Dogwood Cafe at a sunlit Gibsons  at the end of our interview, Wax- ���  man said, "It's such a distance  from Victoria to Come-by-Chance.  Newfoundland, yet we do have ���  something in common.     These  fishing villages have a Canadian :  charm, whether on the east or  the west coast."  It was a pleasure, Mr. Wax-  man.

Oil not only gives you more heat energy  for your dollar, but a well tuned furnace  will make sure you get every possible BTU  out of every drop.  And a new Esso furnace is so efficient,  it can save up to 10% on fuel bills, depending on the condition of the furnace it  replaces.  If you add a central humidifier to your  forced air furnace, you'll save even more.  Humidified air feels warmer than dry air.  So you can turn down your thermostat,  burn less oil and feel just as comfortable  as before. With never a worry about dry,  winter air.  Oil can be the basis  of a complete home  comfort system.  Central humidifying is only the start.  Once your forced air system is installed,  you can also add an Esso Electronic Air  Cleaner.

The average  home requires 800 gallons of furnace oil - each  gallon producing 167,000 BTU's of heat. At 52.2c  per gallon, this would come to $417. per year.  The same amount of heat would take 29.328 KW at  2e (plus 7% provincial tax) per KWh average, this  amounts to $627. per year.  We'll keep you  comfortable.

Have  you ever thought about just  wandering off and going for a  walk, exploring the unknown  places and discovering the natural beauty of the place you call  home? Maybe you have - but you  didn't know just where to go, or  didn't have anyone free to go  with you when you wanted to go.  Well, if so, you're in luck! There  are lots of people just like you  who love to go hiking and there  are two days each week when  they get together to do just  that!  Every Tuesday people meet  at Ellen Berg's house just off  East Porpoise Bay Road, and  under Ellen's guidance wander  off into the woods to visit pre  viously unknown places and viewpoints. If you're looking for a  special spot to go to, join the  group on Tuesday, April 19th,  when with picnic lunches in hand  they will hike the fascinating  trail in to the Skookumchuck  Narrows and will watch the spectacular power of the sea as it's  volume is forced through this  narrow neck of land. Cars will  leave from the Trail Bay Mall  parking lot at 8:00 a.m., or if you  prefer, get a ride from outside  the Wilson Creek Community  Hall at 7:45 a.m.  If Tuesday hikes don't fit into  your schedule, how about Sundays? That way the whole family  can come! And with May being  Family Month, here's something  you can all enjoy together. After  meeting every   Sunday   at   1:30  p.m. outside the Wilson Creek  Community Hall, an always enthusiastic group explores such  diverse places as Gray Creek,  the "Enchanted Forest" of the  Girl Guide Camp, and the Limestone Caves at Halfmoon Bay.  Children and grannies alike find  it an experience to smile and  tell friends about. A special  Family Hike and Picnic to see the  wonders of the Skookumchuck  Narrows is being planned for  Sunday, May 15th, with times  and specifics to be announced  later. (Be on the look-out for  signs) If you're anxious to discover more of the beauty of the  peninsula you live on, and* if  you're wanting more things to  do as a family, come hiking - for  the fun of all.

I present it here for  the first time. To set the scene  briefly: we have finished oar  Initial photographic chores and  are headed downcoast.  vIt's two o'clock and George  Weeks* sailboat has a several-  hour headstart on us. Our destination is Loughburough Inlet,  some distance beyond Jackson  Bay where our filming commenced. It's doubtful we can make  it before nightfall. We pass Minstrel Island and Jim McKay's  lonesome spartree for the last  time and soon are back in Johnson Strait, riding downhill toward  distant home. The water grows  irritable before, long; becomes a  shaking green obsticle-course of  steady-rolling waves. We buck  and jolt through them for an hour  or so. Dusk is thickening when  we reach the familiar dock at  Jackson Bay where producer  Mike Poole has forgotten his rain-  gear. He retrieves this from the  bunkhouse where we'd stayed  and we have supper. We've lost  time in the rough water and the  last lap of the run will have to be  made in the dark. I rather  hope-someone will suggest we lay  over at Dougan's camp until  morning but nobody does. We  cast off and grumble away -down  the dimming sound. I retire to  boatman John Skapski's bowbunk  to read and soon fall asleep.  I am startled awake sometime  later by a resounding thump on  the hull. The gill-netter is tossing  violently through what seems  much rougher seas than we'd  encountered that afternoon. I  get up to the pilot-house in a  hurry. "Just sideswiped a deadhead or. something," shrugs  Skapski in reply to my anxious  landlubber's query.  The' cabin is dark except for  the radar's turning clockhand of  light, x-raying the blackness to  expose the skeletal shoreline.  Through the window, I can see  nothing but seething night broken  by whitecaps and tossing rain.  John Seale the cameraman,- is  steering the boat. Mike, head  on arms at the table, is sleeping  blissfully through it all. I wonder  why we are running without  lights. "Never had a chance to  get the bowlights hooked-up before we left," Skapski says,  "and the searchlight on top just  blinds a guy. Easier to use the  radar. Not much further anyhow.  We're heading into Loughburough now."  He's been fishing the coast for  twelve years and knows his  business but I still feel uneasy.  Then we all have cause for alarm  as the orange screen our course  depends on, fades suddenly and  goes dark. "Must be the Mickey  Mouse antenna," guesses Skapski. "I'll have to climb up top  and try to fix it." He grabs a  flashlight and disappears through  the door. Seale, his face gone  worried, steers on into God knows  what. The boat pitches and shudders. I have horrific visions of  shipwreck and utter calamity.  We butt on blindly through several minutes of nerve-chewing  suspense. Then suddenly and  thankfully, the vital screen flickers alive again..  We find the entrance to Sidney  Harbour and head for some distant lights. As we draw near  them, a man in an outboard  appears and signals us to follow  him in. There is, we soon learn,  a reef very close to the floats.  Dane Campbell, our guide and  final upcoast host, is a tall,  bearded photographer who, with  his artist wife, and small daughter, has traded city-life for the  wide-open spaces. Their roomy,  rustic house is the former home  of a logging-camp super. We  spend a congenial evening in  their huge living-room unwinding  from the journey before a crackling fireplace. They are doing  the back-to-nature business in  style and it's good to be there.  Later, at Dane's invitation, I  unroll my sleeping-bag on one of  the couches and sleep dream-  lessly.  Next morning, we bid farewell  to the Campbells and continue  on our way. The inlet in sunny  splendour is quite a different  place from last night's forbidding  black  abyss.     The  low,  green  mountains hold no menace now,  nor the uneasy waters at the  mouth which are still foaming  and heaving fitfully. We bounce  through them with ease and bear  south.  The Euclataw Rapids, when we  reach them, are running full-tilt  as the waters from Bute Inlet  wrestle with the incoming tide.  The millpond-calm surface we  had negotiated so effortlessly on  the outward journey is now a  seething cauldron of twisting  cross-currents. Whirlpools  booby-trap the narrow passage  on every hand - froth-lipped pits  of potential disaster. Skapski  weaves his way familiarly among  them like a halfback with the  ball. I begin.to relax. Then all  my sea-terrors return with a rush  as a dervish-mouth opens directly  in front of us. It's too late to  dodge and we hit the tornadoing  currents head-on. The boat keels  crazily over like a shot dog and  all the frightening legends come  back to me. This is damn dirty  water. We crash through the  funnel and the boat springs upright again. Panic begins to ebb  in me but I am not unrelieved  when, a few minutes later, we  plough through the outermost  ripples and are free of the turbulence.  We lay over briefly at Stuart  Island as Skapski wants to have  a word with a fisherman friend.  He also wants to gas-up but the  pump-man is nowhere to be  found. Stuart Island is primarily  a stopover-point for outbound  fishboats waiting for the tide to  turn. The rock-bluff at the harbour-entrance is heiroglphed with  painted names ��� a past and present who's-who of the fishing-  fleets. George's sailboat has  gained a good lead on us by the  time we get underway again but  we soon catch up. The wind's  blowing lustily in the Gulf and  they've put up the sails. It's too  gusty for smooth sailing and they  seem to be having an uncomfortable time of it.    I don't envy  ���them. Something about the  sound of the engine seems to  quell my seasickness but that  insidious, silent, rolling motion  is something else again. We  reach the protected pocket of  Refuge Cove and since the wind  is up to fifty m.p.h. in the open  water, we spend the night there.  The following morning, we set  out on the final let of our journey,  George's boat leaving early to  gain a head-start. We take up  pursuit about an hour later. The  wind had died and the calm sea  crinkles like gold-foil in the sunlight. George is making good  time and the sailboat is still not  in sight when we cruise past  Lund. We get perhaps two miles  further. Then the engine sputters  and goes dead. "Knew I should  have gassed-up back there,"  says Skapski, "looks like we're  clean out of fuel."  Mike and Raincoast Chronicles  Editor Howie White, who has  traded places with John Seale for  this last jog, jump into the skiff  and head back to Lund for a ten-  gallon drum to carry us through to  the next gas-pumps at Westview.  About a mile away however,  their outboard gives up the ghost  too. Both our craft sit bobbing  foolishly until an obliging beachcomber takes the skiff in tow.  There is nothing for Skapski  and I to do but sit there and drift.  The tide carries us ever further  from shore in the direction of  Mystery Reef, one of the oddest-  looking rock-formations on the  coast. Some are almost square  and the whole thing suggests -  a long-sunken city, risen ominously from the depths. Even in  broad daylight, there is something sinister about the reef with  its mournful bell-bouy tolling  eternal danger. I fantasize on  it until Mike and Howie finally  return.  We reach Westview,. fill the  tanks and head for home. At  last we're entering Pender Harbour and winding our way  through it to Gunboat Bay where  the others wait curiously. It all  seems somehow much smaller  from this new perspective. I  am both glad to be back and' sad  that our odyssey is over. It is  like waking from a dream.  0 CBC Radio  Coast News, April 12,1977  Even Cowgirls Get the Bines  Tom Bobbins  Houghton Mifflin        365 pp.  I suspect Tom Robbins has a  good time when he writes books.  This is his second novel (the first  was Another Roadside Attraction)  and it's filled with the same infectious wordiness that marked  the earlier one! The plots don't  seem to go very far, but getting  from one end to the other is  usually enjoyable, simply from  the sheer exuberance of the  author. He gets carried away.  Furthermore, he enjoys getting  carried away. A quick example:  "This sentence was made in  Japan. This sentence gows in  the dark...This sentence has a  crush on Norman Mailer. This  sentence is a wino and doesn't  care who knows it. Like many  italic sentences, this one has  Mafia connections. This sentence  is a double Cancer with Pisces  rising...This sentence is proud to  be a part of the team here at  Even Cowgirls Get the Bines.  This sentence is rather confounded by the whole damn thing."  Underneath all the froth the  plot relies heavily on a contemporary sensationalism to move it  along.' Unless you're used to  Robbins work, the following  synopsis may sound a' little bizarre. Deal with it the best you can.  This is only a book review.  All right. The heroine of the  piece is a young and beautiful  Sissy Hankshaw Gitche, a sometime fashion model for a feminine  deodorant spray company. Sissy,  it seems, was born with a strange  deformity, two very large thumbs. Aside from separating her  from her peer group, and provi-  Books with  John  Faustmann  ding the author with a chance to  speculate endlessly on the history  ofthe apposite digits, her thumbs  prove to be exceptionally handy  for hitchhiking. By the time she's  in her teens she's already estab-  _ ���V���N  COWGIRLS  G���TTH���  DLU���S  ft Novel by     TOfTl  ROBBIO/  :uitliorcf ANOTHER ROfllXSlOE/ITTRftCTICN  lished the cross-country hitching  record,. and ended up in the  Dakotas at the Rubber Rose  Ranch. Here she meets the cowgirls from the title, a salubrious,  lubricious gaggle of new-age  women, who are struggling  against the restrictive', patriarchal  consciousness of their times.  Now the Rubber Rose Ranch,  which is owned by the feminine  deodorant spray magnate, is a  spa for rich ladies wishing to  lose a few pounds. Set apart  from these ladies are the cowgirls. They run the place, Jed by  a woman called Bonanza Jellybean, and another woman named  Delores del Ruby, who dresses  in black, hates men, carries a  whip and ingests inordinate  amounts of peyote. <  This  is  the   setting  for  the  philosophical debate which is at  the core of this novel. With each  of the various cowgirls taking a  different stand on the issues of  the day, we plod on to see if we  can reconcile the feminine gender  with life in general. The confrontation of the new-age politics  of the cowgirls with the outside  world (embodied by the U. S.  federal government) comes when  a flock of nearly extinct whooping  cranes nests at the Rubber Rose  Ranch. To the barricades for  truth, justice and freedom, etc.  Meanwhile, up in the hills,  the local reluctant guru, the  Chink, provides a mystical counterpoint to the whole delirious  whirl. Off to another side of the  page is the author himself, the  young psychiatrist, Dr. Robbins,  known mostly for his keen intellect and his moustache.  "Dr. Robbin's moustache was  the ruins of a lost city of hair  discovered by archeologists in  the Bald Mountains, or Dr. Robbins's mustache was a fur coat  worn by an eccentric widow to a  picnic in Pheonix, Arizona, on  the fourth of July, or Dr. Robbins's mustache was an obscene  phone call to a deaf nun.''  What Robbins has done this  time is carefully offer advice to  the new woman. Although he  presents his cowgirls as luscious  young lovelies, he is careful to  represent them as full human  beings. He has a difficult time  doing this but he manages.  He follows them around carefully, even into the outhouse,  where there is a picture of Dale  Evans up on the wall, and the  transistor radio is always playing  things like "The Starving Armenian Polka", or "The Day-Old  Apple Strudel Polka". As the  story rumbles along on the back  of minor sex scenes, descriptions  of thighs, hip philosophy from  the Chink, and more wandering  on the part of the author, we  finally come to the point of the  whole thing. When Delores del  Ruby has her third peyote vision,  we arrive at the crux of the piece,  the statement the author has been  snuggling up to all along. Stumbling out of the bushes to address  the cow-girls on the eve of their  battle for the whooping cranes,  she speaks the book's message:  "The natural enemy of the  daughters is not the fathers and  the sons," she announced. "I  was mistaken. The enemy of  women is not men. We all have  the same enemy. The enemy is  the tyranny of the dull mind.  There are authoritative blacks  with dull minds, and they are  the enemy. The leaders of capitalism and the leaders of communism are the same people,  and they are the enemy. There  are dull-minded women who try  to repress the human spirit,  and they are the enemy just as  much as the dull-minded men."  And there you have it. Robbins  statement on the feminist question. It takes him three hundred pages to get to it, but I  suspect it's worth waiting for.  The bizarre details, the little  excitements, and the occasional  address to our prurient interest  keep the thing moving along at  a sprightly pace. Still, it lacks  substance, somehow. At one  point an interviewer has gone to  Sissy's hometown to interview  an old classmate of hers.  "Betty Clanton Seward produced a box of saltines and a  brown and yellow aerosol can.  'This stuff is the latest thing in  the stores,' she said, brandishing  the can. 'You spray a regular  old soda cracker with it...'  zzzzt zzzzt '...and it makes it  taste like a chocolate chip cookie.  Here.' "  . At times this novel seems like  much the same thing, a real novel  with an aerosol coating. Still,  it doesn't taste too bad going  down.  by Maxyanne West  Canada's version of the T.V.  Emmy   Awards   known   as   the  ACTRA Awards takes place Thursday at the Association of Canadian Television and Radio Artists  annual banquet in Toronto. This  is the sixth year of the awards,  now a national event televised  live by the CBC - Channel 2 at  6:00 p.m. Channel 6 doesn't seem  to be carrying it this year - hopefully there is a mistake in the  schedule.  The award, a small bronze  sculpture nicknamed "Nellie"  commissioned by Actra from  sculptor William McElcheran is  given in recognition of outstanding achievement in Canadian  broadcasting. Beginning in a  modest way, Actra has added new  categories as funds become available. This year there will be  sixteen categories for which a.  "Nellie" may be given, judges  have the right to decide no award  is merited in any particular  category; as well as the John  Drainie Award Medal which,  since 1968 has honoured the  memory of one of Canada's most  distinguished actors who died  aged 50 in 1966. Last year's winner of this award was Jane Mallet  and the previous winners include  Harry J. Boyle, W. O. Mitchell,  Lister Sinclair and Graham Spry.  There are the usual categories  for best writer, best sportscaster,  public affairs and news broadcasters, best actor, best program,  etc. for television and radio.  Also some special awards, the  Gordon Sinclair Award for outspoken opinion and integrity  in" broadcasting established by  his colleagues to honour his  70th birthday. Last year's award  was shared by Adrienne Clarkson and Warner Troyer of the  Fifth Estate. Pierre Berton,  Max Ferguson, Howie Meeker  and Jack Webster have been  previously honoured.  The Earle Grey Award for the  best acting performance in TV  or a non-feature film recognises  the contribution of actor Earle  Grey who as president of Toronto's Association of Radio Artists  in the forties helped establish  the present national association.  Jayne Eastwood received this  award last year for her performance in the TV drama "The  Last of the Four Letter Words".  ,i;The, Andrew Allan,.Award.for  the best acting performance in  radio was won last year by Chris  Wiggins for his part in "The  Apple Cart".  Nominations in each category  are made by local ACTRA associations across the country. The  panels of judges, 4 - 5 people for  each category, vote first for the  three finalists. Their choice of  winner goes to an independent  authority so that the winners are  not known until the envelopes  are opened. This year 24 nominations have been forwarded by the  Vancouver branch. It will be  interesting to see how many make  it to the finalists. Last year 67%  of the finalists were nominated  by the Toronto branch, including  Bruno Gerussi who was runner  up to Al Waxman for the best  performance in a continuing role  in a television program.  Obviously the system faithfully reflects the difficulties  in coming to terms with the  regions of Canada experienced  by the government and other  national organizations. Hopefully   they   tvill   be   overcome,  5 STOP *  J in at *  * ������..''*  * Radio/haelf      ��  * ���<,- Authorized Sale* Centre     ��  * --: *  %       Check Our        I  * "GET READY     $  FOR SPRING"     *  * SALE J  }   April 13th-23rd . }  J J&C J  }    ELECTRONICS     $  * Sechelt *  J         885-2568          ��  ******************  i  Cozy  Corner  Cameras  CAMERA  AND  DARKRM.

Roy and Zeke start sorting out  the catch, heaving the scrap  fish overboard for the gulls.  The eagles circle waiting for  a fish that's too big for the  seagulls to handle. They come  down about fifty feet astern  and pluck them from the surface.  The estimate was pretty close.  There's about thirty pounds of  prawns and ten pounds of shrimp.  Not bad for an hour's work.  We're pointed towards Gibsons.  Ra decides on a drag towards  Keats Island. He lines up with  Corky's farm and drops the  net again. It's about an hour  before we get near the ferry  lanes and lift again.. Mostly  shrimp this time with a few  larger ratfish, dogfish and  snappers. This time four eagles  come round. They must be from  different nests because, as one  flies back to the island another  by Ian Corrance  gets about a hundred feet above  it, folds its wings and dives  straight at the eagle carrying  the fish trying to force it to  drop, its catch - unsuccessfully.  There's a red snapper on the  surface too big for the gulls,  but every time an eagle tries  to get it the gulls harass it.  Suddenly the seagulls become  silent. One of the bald eagles  is circling in front of the boat.  They fix their attention on it.  It stays just within annoyance  distance. Out of the corner  of my eye I see another black  shape swoop in behind the stern  and away with the fish.  'If everything isn't sold at the  wharf today,'says Ra, 'I'll  go out early tomorrow, make a  day of it and sell it in town.  It's not always beautiful sunshine and enough fish. There's  lost nets, expenses, bad weather,  and various other realities but  everything considered, it's a  pretty good life.

They are the members of the  Gibsons Lions Club and their  names are as follows: Joe Kampman, Wally Langdale, Andy Pel-  letier, Arman Wold, Dick Blakeman, and Reg Morel. To these  fine men I extend on behalf of  Harmony Branch #38 O.A.P.O.  our heartfelt thanks for a job well  done. It is a real asset to our hall  especially to those who can't get  around so well and a real fine  piece of workmanship by all those  concerned. I was especially  pleased to see that this time they  put their name on it, as it will be  a living memory to all of us here  now and to those who come in  future years. There is one thing  I must say about the Lions when  they say they are going to do  something well you can depend  on them to get the job done.  So all I can say is thanks again  gentlemen, you are really out to  make things easier for the older  people and certainly doing a fine  job of it. Thanks also to George  Elander for bringing his grading  machine down and levelling off  our grounds, also for clearing  out the spot where we intend to  build a shelter for our ground  equipment, another job well  done, so who says this world is  not full of good people? They are  sure proving to the world in the  Gibsons area that there are still  some good people around yet.  Now to get down to more of  the happenings. I have had a  couple of cards from Dick and Eva  and Ed and Molly also one from  Karl Fraser - all views of Hawaai.  Sorry to say that Dick Oliver  hasn't had such a good holiday  over there as he has been quite  sick for a few days and they are  supposed to operate on him on  Monday 11th. We sure hope that  everything turns out good for  Dick as we miss him very much  and sincerely hope that he will  be back with us again real soon.  Carpet bowlers turned out in  real force last Wednesday and  everyone enjoyed themselves to  the full. It is a pleasure to go  and see the seniors enjoying  themselves. They had another  birthday on Wednesday in the  person of Tom Vincent, a young  87 years of age. Congratulations  Tom and may you see many more  Happy Birthdays 1  We are expecting the gang of  gamblers back from Reno tomorrow, (Saturday) hope they all  had a good time and come back  ready to go to work again, as we  figure on having a fun summer,  with daily bus trips to various  places of interest. So let's jget.  behind our travel committee and  give them our support. We are  contemplating a trip to White  Rock for 9 days at a very remarkable price courtesy of the Royal  Canadian Legion.   The date has  not been set but the matter will  be taken up at the next executive  meeting April 11th. Another  trip is planned to Frank Bakers in  West Vancouver for an afternoon  of fun. Transportation will be  supplied for all those who do not  have cars to go to these events  so get your name on the dotted  line and let's see if we can get a  good sized group to go. I am sure  you will find it worth your while.  Also we have a bunch of seniors  coming down from Penticton on  Wednesday, May 4th: They will  be staying in Gibsons overnight,  so we are figuring.on having a  fun night, with them as our  guests. They have made all their  own arrangements for staying  overnight at The Uptown Motel  on North Road and Sunnycrest  Motel on Hwy 101. All we ask  is that you bring something for  light snacks during the evening  as they will be eating out at the  Cedars where tentative arrangements have been made for dinner  and breakfast. There will be 38  of them coming so let's make a  good showing and make more  friends and let them know that  we care. I am sure it will be a  great incentive for us to do this  and who knows we may be invited to go up and visit with  them one of these days. It will  be a good thing to get to know  the other branches' work all  across the province and maybe  we can put some of their ideas  in motion down here.  Well, this being Easter weekend I hope the Easter Bunny was  good to you all. Don't forget our  Tea and Bazaar on Friday April  15th at 2:00 p.m. Admission  75$, also the carpet bowling on  Wednesday at 1:00 p.m. Bingo  on Thursday at 8:00 p.m.   While  I am on the bingo deal, last  night was our smallest attendance  to date, but with the long weekend I guess people were away  visiting friends and that is the  main reason I think for the small  attendance, but we had 72 playing which was quite encouraging.  Thanks again to Ken Stewart for  coming down and helping out  with the calling also to Gladys  Coates and Ruby Mason for the  wonderful job they did in the kitchen. Thanks to all the ladies for  a good job well done.       \  I guess I have told you all the  highlights so will close by wishing  you one and all, the best of health .  and much happiness. See you  all at the carpet bowling Wednesday at which I may have some  more news for you in regard to  various events we are working on  and hope to accomplish. Irene  Bushfield and a committee of the  ladies are going on a shopping  spree one of these days so look  out for further equipment in  the kitchen.  I must say "Adios Amigo"  for this time so here's hoping  these few lines find you all well  and hale and hearty.  Don't forget the Spring Tea  and Bazaar Friday, April 15th  at 2:00 p.m. Admission 75$.  by Gerry Ward  Usually when a person' starts  into the aquarium hobby, they  start small. Most people I have  met that have a first aquarium  in their homes own a five or ten  gallon aquarium. The problem  arising from this is lack of space,  and possibility of disease. The  only cures I know of is a bigger  aquarium or buying your fish so  they will not overcrowd the aquarium.  The fish you can buy and raise  to full size I shall now describe.  The scavengers which you can  utilize in a five gallon or larger  aquarium are quite numerous.  With the algae eater, you may  have two of any of the following:  Otociclus affinis sometimes  called midget sucker catfish,  Otocinclus arnoldi, or Otocinclus  vittatus. These fish attain lengths  from two to two and a quarter  inches, all are peaceful. They  will help to keep algae to a minimum. Next is your bottom scavengers, in this you may utilize  two kuhli loaches and two catfish or all catfish. You have to  keep using small fish though, so  you can have corydoras hastatus,  commonly called the dwarf  catfish or corydoras pygmaeus or  the pygmy catfish. Both types of  catfish will not exceed one and a  quarter inches. So far we have  six fish, these are all you need  for scavengers. ��  ''7>y^77"-'rV"7   .     ���;.���������-���'������������      ���.. .  ���'*���  For the mid and top tank inhabitants you may use any of the  following. In the Tetra species  you still have to remain small so  to stay within our limites I will  list only the smaller tetras. The  neon and cardinal tetras, both  have a vivid blue stripe with some  red and white. Neither fish will  grow beyond l'/2 inches. The  glow light tetra is almost translucent except for a wine red line  running from the eye to the tail,  this fish grows to IV* inches.  The other tetras you may use are  the green neon, head and tail  light, red nosed, and flame tetras,  to name just a few.  Another fish which is good in  small. aquariums is the pencil  fish. There are several types of  pencil fish, they grow from 13A  inches to 2Vt inches.   There are  a few of the rasboras which can  be used, one being the harlequin  rasbora. The small gourami's  may be used also, because they  utilize a lot of atmospheric air  and not just air being held in  the water. Three of these choices  are the dwarf, honeycomb or  vpygmy gouramis. Gilppies are  small and break up the colours.  They are a good surface or top  feeder also. If you wish to specialize a bit any of the aphyosemion  or killifish species may be used  in small aquariums. There are  also several dwarf cichlids which  will fit into a small aquarium.  The yellow dwarf cichlid and the  ram are two nice ones. With this  list you should be able to find  and outfit a good, small, community aquarium.  With the six scavengers that  we. talked of earlier you should  still have enough space left to  put from six to nine of the other  fish listed. If the aquarium is  properly planted and a few hiding  places provided, there is no  reason why your fish should not  be happy. Remember with small  tanks, do not overcrowd or you  will have trouble.

Spring has now  arrived, the gardens are calling,  worms squirming, birds worming and a new round of activities  have begun. We shall miss our  Monday gatherings very much.  We shall also miss Dolly and  Walter Koehler who are leaving  our Sunshine Coast to reside in  Surrey. A farewell gift was presented to .them by Mr. Bill Grose  on behalf of the association. Far  too many are moving away these  days for one reason or another.  We surely hope that others will  move in to replace them all.

Hicks who brought along a most:  interesting book of old songs*  among which was one of our;  Fourth Reader poems called-  "Twenty Years Ago" the last-  pathetic verse which reads: C *  "Some are in the grave-yard;  laid, some sleep beneath the sea>  But few are left of our old clas��-  excepting you and me;/ And-  when our time shall come, dear-  Tom, and we are called to go,/.'  I hope they'll lay us where we*  played, just twenty years ago." . -7  "What nonsense!" our teacher;  protested,  "If these young students were nine years old at the  school-house  time,   they   would-  be only twenty-nine when they  penned their morbid memories 1" -.  Which prompted me to moder-"  nize   the   verse   on   a   brighter,  note: - "Some are on the Sun-7  shine Coast, some have moved  away,/ None are in the graveyard yet, and a few are in "sick  bay"./    We'll dance and sing,  bowl and laugh, we'll show the  school kids how,/  When we join;,  the  New  Horizons   group,  just  forty years from now,"  Dogwood Takeout  by MICHAEL NUTLAND  Better late than never department: This tale was related to  me by a customer who had just  completed an odyssey below the  49th parallel. New Years Day  found him in Jacksonville, Florida  and by some skullduggery (which  he did not reveal) he managed  to wangle an invitation to the  Florida National Dinner. Having  survived for quite a while on hotel  meals, he was positively salivating over the prospect of a first  class 'nosh-up', especially at  someone else's expense. He arrived at the appointed time,  complete with teeth, and took his  seat. A covered plate was placed  before him, and whipping off the  cover, he found, not roast beef  and Yorkshire pudding, not  turkey drumstick and cranberry  sauce, but hog-jowl and black-  eyed peas.  Being a man of deli  cate constitution, he was able to  swallow nothing but his  disappointment.  Making polite noises,  about  the   water  or   something  having upset him, he retired to ���  his  hotel  for a   grilled   cheese ���  sandwich and a glass  of milk,,  which, to add insult  to  injury, ,  cost him six dollars. .-.  For once I am going to use this-,  space for something  very  per- ,  sonal.    Just over a week agqr  I was presented with my second _  daughter.    Completely unknown  to either Nancy or myself, people  too numerous to mention individually, contributed to an amazing  bassinette of gifts for the child. ���  For once in my life, I find myseif -  completely    speechless,    except,  to say, "thank you" to all con--  cerned from Nancy and myself,- ���.  and reflect yet again that we are ,  glad we live in this community.

There was a moving evening  at Branch 109 of the Royal Canadian Legion In Gibsons last  Saturday night as veterans from  as far away as Prince George  joined together to commemorate  the breakthrough at Vimy Ridge  In the First World War which  was spearheaded by Canadian  troops.  There were several damp  eyes as old soldiers remembered  and thanked their fallen comrades. Three men from the  actual battle were present  and reminisced about April 9th,  sixty yean ago.  JIM MCQUEEN  "I think it's criminal. I  think they should hold an  inquiry and stop them from  spraying until they find out  what the effects are on the  salmon runs and the population. In inquiries they've  done so far, I know one up  around Campbell River,  they've shown ft causes  birth defects in animals  and it's showing up in the  children too. They should  look at another alternative."  IN MEMORY  MR. LUTHER  "I think that if the information given out by the  authorities is correct, I  think it is very irresponsible  to use it especially since  most people don't agree with  it anyway. There doesn't  seem to be a way of stopping  it. Everybody seems to try  many ways but it doesn't  seem to work does it? They  continue to spray and from  all the information I've read,  it's adversely affecting  people."  K&  AREA  //  STELLA MUTCH  "I don't think we need to  use chemicals for any reason  on this earth. Mother nature  has a way of taking care of  herself Jaut if we want to  help out, there's a natural  way of doing it. If we knew  in advance of spraying we  could protest. Maybe we  could all stand along, the  power line..."If you're going  to do it to the earth, then  you'll have to do it to us,  too!"  VERNON HILLS  "I'm sure that if it were  doin' us any good, - they'd  be charging us for it. The  legislature is letting them  do it. We're supposed to  be "governed by the people"  but they do whatever they  ' damn well please. It's a  pretty arrogant company -  or crown corporation - whatever you want to call it. They  do as they damn well feel  like. They seem to have unlimited power and it's a little  scary tome."

YOUR attendance is of  the utmost importance.  PETER REID  "This is tho kind of issue  there can't be two sides to...  I can't see anyone being pro  herbicide,  simple  as  that.  There's very little that can  be done to stop it from the  local   level.       Presumably  there are provincial and federal regulations.   Tightening  those are the only answer.  Pressure has to be applied,  not on Hydro, but on whatever   body   of   government  is responsible for the regulations.    We've made a lot  of drastic mistakes that only  show  up generations   later  because nobody did any research to begin with.    We  must determine before hand  whether or not a chemical  is dangerous not just use it  until jt's proven dangerous.  Formaldehyde    being    the  perfect example."
