Timber Days Arrangements nearing completion  At a Timber Days organizational meeting held on May 2nd,  Co-Chairman Lil Fraser reported  to the Timber Days Committee  that the chairmen and co-workers  of many organizations are very  busy completing the last minute  details for the events for which  they are responsible. Lil reminded everyone present that by.  the time the next newspaper  appeared there would be only  eleven days to go.  A surprise guest at the May  2nd   meeting   was   the   mascot  ing place, and the co-operation  of the staff at the municipal  office.  Neil Campbell, it was reported,  is anticipating a whole-hearted  response to his Store Staff Contest. It should be fun shopping  in stores decorated in an olden  days theme.

When the wind  conditions are not right, several  planes have begun the practise  of flying in from the Gower Point  area over the houses and landing  in the bay. The happened a few  years ago and pilots were advised  to stop this dangerous practise.  One hardy invididual actually  proved that a float plane could  make a dry land landing by running up on the beach. Metcalf  told council that anyone with a  complaint of that nature should  write down the registration number and'forward it to the Department of Transport with all the  details.  sprinkling regulation shoul be  brought into effect as soon as  possible. A tongue in cheek  suggestion was that the odd numbered houses water their gardens  on even days, and the evn numbers on odd days. Fred .elt that  sprinkling regulations should be  posted by around the middle of  the month.  Tennis  I)og06itir6l  The regional board could give  no firm commitment on dog control, but feltfthat when the popu  latron density in any one area  was enough to support it they  would put it to referendum and  join.

Air traffic  While discussing financing of  the Aero Club, Alderman Metzler dropped a bombshell on  council by suggesting the opera- -wmrT  tion of the airport be turned over IfrO/tC F*  to the regional board. He. had  not discussed it with the regional  board as yet, but felt that instead  of the dual jurisdiction now in  force a single central body would  be more convenient: After discussion the proposal was shelved,  as the regional board had been  offered this before and turned it  A planning committee inquiry  found that the property owned by  the now defunct Pazco Fibre-  glass is not zoned for industry.

Fred Holland, the Works  Manager, felt that water for the  summer is still a concern.

Wharfage  Alderman Hume had been in  contact with Vancouver trying to  substantiate the unconfirmed reports that the. wharfage may be  dropped down to a reasonable  $1.00 per foot per month. \He  reported that he had received no  confirmation on this, and had the  impression that the federal government was quite satisfied;with  their original wharfage proposal,  even   though   the   municipality  *!>8<$&��^^  WHERE TO FIND  A COPY OF  THE COAST NEWS:  In Gibsons: The Co-op Food  Store, Ken's Lucky Dollar,  Village Store, Kruse Drugstore, Western Drugs, D.G.

IN YOUR MAIL BOX  "Everytime I come up with a  solution he comes up with one  more thing," said Mr. Killam  speaking-of Village Clerk Tom  Wood and to the Sechelt Council  last week, during the reading of  the minutes. It took half an hour  to get through the previous minutes and get on to new business.  The problem was that although  Mr. Killam had been granted  permission to build oh his property once he had submitted complete plans, it was pointed out  that by doing so he would be in  contravention of the present bylaws.  According to the plans a carpet  warehouse and an apartment  block would be constructed. This  would necessitate relocating the  lumber yard on the property:-'  Clerk Wood stated that; he had  already made a mistake in issuing  a zoning certificate for, flie apartment block, as, according to the  by-laws residential and industrial  uses were incompatible on the  same lot. A heated discussion  ensued until-finally Alderwoman  of the difficulties arose from the  fact that several years ago when  the present intricate zoning bylaws * were ��� being set up, one  clause had been mistakenly omitted-'and was'now causing the  present complications. ���> Some of  the councillors felt that since  they had been giving permission  for  similar  mixtures  of zoning  be accepted and the discussion  be carried on during the regular-  order of business.  'I  Mr. Killam made his presentation to council and after  the plans had been examined,  the discussion resumed. Norm  Watson informed council that one  Henry Hall explains his plans for rezoning to the Sechelt  Council.  Kolibas. moved that the minutes   for the past five years they could  not suddenly change in midstream, while others were of the  opinion that the matter should be  corrected here and now.;  The clerk read correspondence  from Parksville, Qualicum and  West Vancouver, showing that  in every case in which lumber  yards were mentioned, they were  zoned industrial, and were not  mixed with either commercial  or residential. He suggested to  Killam that if he would forego  his idea on apartment buildings,  then it could all be zoned industrial. Mr. Killam replied  to this by pointing out that since  there were already several commercial uses of the property  this did not make sense.  In Alderman Thompson's  opinion there seemed to be nothing wrong with the situation as  it stood, while Alderwoman  Kolibas was fearful that if Mr.  Killam's proposal went through,  it could lead to spiralling complications in the future. Mr.  Killam then pointed out to council that it had the power to direct  the clerk and suggested that it  do so. Alderman Leitner then  moved that "the clerk be directed,  to issue a zoning certificate to  construct a retail carpet store on  lot 25 as an extension of Sechelt  Building Supply". This was  seconded by Alderman Thompson  and carried.  The clerk told council that he  wished it to be recorded in the  minutes that this motion was contrary to his advice.  Cameo Lands president Henry  Hall requested from council that ~  the properties north of the Sec- .  helt Legion be rezoned from industrial to commercial as this  would make it easier in the future  to keep the area ;|asthetically  pleasing when the proposed highway   alongside   this   area   was  built. He also asked that Mr.  Killam's present site for his  lumber yard not be allowed to  extend further into.,the lot as it  would be non-conforming at the  expense of the surrounding properties, and that an adequate  partition be built between the  lumber yard and the adjacent  properties. He felt that when  council tries to correct previous  errors by bending or breaking its  by-laws as it had done: that evening, it invalidated the effectiveness of both the by-laws and  council.  Mr. Killam asked why, since  Mr. Hall had only two weeks ago  requested that the property in  question be zoned industrial, he  was now asking for it to be commercial. By way of a reply Mr.  Hall told council that as a gesture  of good faith, he would post a  $100,000. bond to guarantee  that he would return the property  to its original state - minus the  trees. Alderman Leitner asked  Mr. Hall what plans he had for  the property, and Hall declined  to answer, except that it would be  people-oriented. Mayor Nelson  thanked him for his presentation,  and assured him that it would be  looked into in depth.  Alderman Thompson moved  that the clerk write to Glenmont  Holdings asking them to remove  the debris they had left. Mr.  Wood informed him that $46,000  had been set aside in the development costs, and that he would  adivise them to proceed with  the clean up.  Rescinded  The regional board and Sechelt  representatives met in a special  meeting last Thursday morning,  to discuss the approval granted  the previous evening to construct  a carpet outlet on the Sechelt  Building Supply property.  The result of the meeting was  that the decision of the previous  evening was rescinded, because,  in the opinion of the gathering  it would lead to further complication in the future.  .

Questionnaire  The regional board reconsidered the  question of Peninsula Recycling at their  last regular meeting. They did so on the  strength of having received several  letters urging that they reconsider, as  well as several more which appeared in  the newspapers. After they reconsidered  their vote was unchanged. Quite correctly, perhaps, they considered that the  number of letters received was an insufficient sampling of public opinion to  overturn a decision which had been made  after much discussion.  What was heartening, however, in  the exercise was the board's willingness  to explore public sentiment more fully  on this issue by means of a questionnaire  which appears on page three of this  newspaper. The Coast News supports  the concept of recycling and invites like-  minded members of the community to  make use of the opportunity to have your  voice heard on the matter by returning  the questionnaire to the regional board  offices.  In their willingness to consult the public on this issue without being stampeded  in any particular direction, the regional  board members have shown themselves  to be both responsible and responsive.  They deserve credit.  Order please  That was apparently quite a little  shindig at the Sechelt council meeting  last week with rival disputants Haydn  Killam and ever-present Henry Hall  thoroughly disrupting the meeting with  their rival claims for attention. The  shouting in the council chambers is, of  course, only the tip of the iceberg in  whatever contentions that Mr. Killam  and Mr. Hall have and we trust that the  matter will eventually be resolved according to municipal law and in an orderly  fashion.  It would appear that last Wednesday's  fashion was quite disorderly and resulted  in the passing of a motion which had to  be rescinded in a special meeting the  next morning. It is certainly no way to  conduct municipal affairs, or any other  kind for that matter. Mr. Killam and Mr.  Hall should show more respect for the  elected representatives of the public and  perhaps Mayor Nelson should make more  effective use of his gavel.  from the files of Coast News  5 YEARS AGO  $37,260 will be awarded to 4 applications under the Opportunities for Youth  federal program with Roberts Creek,  Sechelt and Bowen Island designated  as areas of operation.  10 YEARS AGO  An  "It's up to you" experiment in  education was  given  a week trial  at  Pender Harbour Secondary School.  15 YEARS AGO  Two 12,000 volt submarine power  cables will be placed in Thornborough  Channell between Gambier Island and  the Sunshine Coast area Wednesday as  part of a program to provide electric  service to Gambier Island.  20 YEARS AGO  30 year old Garden Bay Lodge burns  to the ground.

Peterson  Musings  John Burnside  By Alexander Pope  I remember the original King  Kong. I think I saw it alone somewhere around 1952, probably  with the little bit of pocket money  I got while I was working part  time in the nursery garden. I  was in the habit of taking the bus  on a Saturday afternoon after  work and going to Kilmarnock.  It was a big adventure, a solitary  rambling through a big strange  place and a visit to the movies.  There were four or five to choose  from then in the hey-day of  cinema just before the advent of  television, with crowds outside  queuing to get in. I'd tour them  all studying the bill-boards  throughtfully, weighing the decision carefully. It was a once a  week treat and I didn't want to  blow it by choosing the wrong  movie.  On this particular Saturday it  was the picture of the great hairy  ape with the lovely blonde lady  clutched in one huge hand that  fired my adolescent imagination  and I went into the friendly dark.  It was a long time ago and the  movie plays still on the screen of  memory only in disjointed fragments. Any concept of plot or  story-line is gone completely.  Only a few scenes are there, but  they are vividly there. I remember the screaming panic of the  flight when the band of intrepid  little explorers first came across  the giant ape. I remember the  horror of the capture of the lovely  Faye Wray, by that time with the  mandatory thigh-revealing torn  skirt. I remember watching the  great snarling ape transformed  into cooing tenderness as he contemplated the lovely tininess in  his hand.  There were action scenes too.  There was a tremendous battle  between the giant ape and a  tyrannosaurus rex of equal proportions. By this time King Kong  was battling in the defence of the  lovely Miss Wray and I remember  the cheer that went up when he  appeared to challenge the giant  lizard which menaced her and the  even greater cheer when he  caught the king of giant lizards  with   a   tremendous   left   hook  which decided the contest.  There were other people, too,  running through the jungle being  harrassed by pre-historic terrors.  They were stronger on special  effects than on historical accuracy  in Hollywood, then as now, and  vividly do I remember one scene  when some poor non-essential to  the plot was seized by the long-  necked brontosaurus, dangled  for a horrible sequence from the  lizard's mouth and then vanished  from view. That I knew at the  time that the long-necked, small  brained brontosaurus was a grass  eater - a sort of a pre-historic,  semi-aquatic sheep, bothered me  not at all. I had suspended all  disbelief while the tale unfolded.  As the movie proceeded one  grew fonder of King Kong. That  yearning tender, hopeless beas-  tiality which could ever earn only  repugnance from object of his  enslavement but yet could do  nothing but adore, became more  and more affective as the show  went on. It wasn't just a horror  movie. It was poignant telling  of a hopeless and tragic love  story.  I cannot remember how they  managed to convey him to New  York City. It was early days for  tranquillizing guns especially for  a creature of that immense bulk  but somehow he was rendered  insensible, the lady saved, and  the ape transported in chains or  in a cage the details of which  escape me and, given the overwhelming impression of massive  strength, imagination is not able  to unlock the filing cabinets of  recollection. But to New York  City he came despondent in  chains to be gawked at and ridiculed by the civilized vulgar.  There was an old male gorilla  in Edinburgh Zoo last year who  reminded me of King Kong. He  sat behind his bars eating his  salad lunch with indolent relish  and when he deigned to notice  those outside the bars at all it  was with a bored disdain. So  with King Kong.  In the inertia of defeat, with  liberty and his love denied him,  he endured with the brokenhearted dignity of a captive king.  And then, I think, some crass  public relations exercise brought  Faye Wray back within visual  range and like the blinded Samson the great ape refound his  strength. Again the story line  deserts me and I am left with  only the indelible memory of  that giant hairy defiance clinging  to the top of the Empire State  Building in that most alien of  environments gesturing his challenge to the civilized world which  buzzed at him with machine guns  and aeroplanes. Finally he fell  watched by the lady whom, I  think, he had recaptured and deposited tenderly on a ledge on the  skyscraper while he fought the  machines of modern man with the  same selfless courage with which  he had fought the tyrannosaurus  on her behalf.  And finally the great hairy  form was crumpled and defeated  and there wasn't a dry eye in the  house.  So I'll be going to see the remake. I hope I have indicated  that even with the hindsight of  twenty-five years I remember  the original as much more than  a horror story. In that helpless,  yearning dignity, in that selfless, devoted courage there was  more of a love story than the  plastic interactions of the mindless swingers that drift across  our celluloid fantasies.  I'm sure the new version will  be slicker; that the special effects  will be marvellous; and the plot-  line updated. I hope it isn't all  just cerebral cleverness. I don't  want to know about the Freudian  or psychological implications of  it all. I would like to be moved  again by the hopeless dilemma  of the great ape who fell impossibly in love. And I suppose, insofar as the very presence of  the remake has triggered the faltering projector of memory into  a nostalgic replay of the scenes  I have described, I have been.  I go to see the old fable of the  beauty and the beast in new  dress. I go to renew acquaintance  with an old friend. I hope they  have treated him kindly.  Slings & Arrows  jf"> George Matthews  Okay everyone; here we go.  Today is the day that I'm finally  going to have something definite,  definitive and decisive to say  about a controversial subject.  Enough of this wishy washy liberal, both sides of the question  nonsense I've been doling out  these past months. By the time  I get to the end of this column  I'm going to try my darnedest  to come up with a clear yes or no.  My subject is the Gibsons  swimming pool; yes or no? You  will notice immediately that I've  made the standard liberal error  already by waiting too late to  make up my mind. However,  late being better than never,  I'm going to try.  Before I give you the yes or  no you're anxiously waiting for  let me take you ' through four  options which occurred to me.  First, is the "city father's monument to posterity and manifestation of community aspirations"  scenario. This script reads something like this: The city fathers,  anxious to show leadership and  direction in the community decide to build a public swimming  and recreation facility that would  be the model for community projects across the country. A small  town, pooling its resources and  enthusiasm, picked itself up by its  civic pride and proposed and completed a project that will be a  monument to creative thinking  and enterprise for generations  of Gibsons' citizens. They were  concerned about the cost but said  they wanted a facility that was  second to none in Canadian small  towns. They said they wanted  to demonstrate to the young  people of the community that  citizens working together could  accomplish anything. They took  on as the town motto the old  French paratroop saying, "If  its possible its been done; if its  impossible we will do it".  The second option is the "If  we can't do it right, let's not do  it" scenario; subtitled, "We are  the tireless protectors of the public purse". The script reads:  The town council, (small town  conservatives never call themselves City Fathers��� decided  that in times of inflation, unemployment and economic uncertainty it would be folly to commit  the citizenry to an outrageous  tax burden. The town council  after all was elected to protect  the pocket books ofthe electorate.  "If we were to raise public expectations and get ourselves into  debt and then go broke we would  not be able to keep our pool open.  We could not maintain it. We  could not hire people to run it.  It would become a permanent  monument to public stupidity.  Besides, people move to small  towns to escape from high taxes  and big enterprises - we have the  ocean, the mountains, everything  here - why go broke building a  pool for a few people at the expense of all the people?''  The third option is the "Let's  built a pool that no one will use  at a price no one wants to pay"  scenario. This script reads:  The town council chooses a moderate course. There is no doubt  that a strong lobby of citizens  believe the community would  benefit by the construction of a  civic swimming pool. Young  children would be able to learn to  swim and be protected from accidental drowning. The young  people would be provided with a  desperately needed out of school  recreational facility. Local students with swim training could  be given summer jobs as instructors and lifeguards.  On the other hand, economic  prospects are weak. Unemployment is high, (when unemployment was high in Egypt they  built pyramids). "We simply  can't afford a first class facility.  We have to satisfy the demands  of the citizens but we have to be  fiscally responsible. We will  built a less than adequate pool  which will serve as a good instructional facility but at a reasonable cost. No diving (too  shallow) no frills. This approach  should satisfy the most vociferous  swimmers and the most blatant  penny pinchers."  Script number four is called,  "Let's find a community minded  citizen with- some time on her or  his hands who is a real promoter;  someone who likes to organize  and arrange things and has an  excess of vigor and enthusiasm  and lots of ego to promote the  building of a pool."  ."Once we hired Abagail  Friendly she worked day and  night to organize volunteer work  crews; to hustle up low rates  from equipment operators; to  arrange special prices on material  from local businesses; she promoted and advertised the businesses which made contributions;  she made an arrangement with  the federal government for some  grants; she parlayed with the  provincial government for funds;  she signed a contract with the  school board to pick up some  operating costs in exchange for  student use of the pool. When  she was done she was proud of  herself and her community. She  had masterminded the best swimming pool a small town ever had  for the lowest cost anyone had  ever paid. Unfortunately, several  letters to editors of local papers  criticised Abagail for being  pushy, aggressive and egocentric. They thought she had done  a disservice to her community  with her big city promoter techniques. Abagail was tired, depressed and demoralized and she  was never seen on the Sunshine  Coast again."  Now the time has come. What  does small town liberalism have  to say about swimming pools?  Should be build a real swimming  pool that the town can use or  be proud of?; should we forget  it?; should we build a cheapy?;  should we find a promoter? I  say YES!  Have a good week.

Pleased  Unions  Canada  EDITOR:  All through the ages men have  invented gods to satisfy their  various needs, and it seems to  me that in our day the Labor  Unions have invented one - his  name is Contract and his weapon  to enforce his demands is called  Strike. The latest manifestation  of the god is the threat of a ferry  strike.- The ferries are part of  our road system, and in effect  are. bridges on the highways'.  If maintenance men on the roads  blew, up a bridge because they  were not given what they wanted,  they would find themselves in  serious trouble, but if the ferry  workers go on strike they expect  to be rewarded for having their  demands met. A few .years ago  some of our Indian fellow-citizens, to protest the taking of  some of their land for the building  of roads, blocked some roads with  their own bodies, to call public  attention to their grievances.  They were forcibly removed and  some of their leaders arrested.  This seems to be a strange sort  of justice, if the ferry workers  can block our highway, and yet  be rewarded.  A strike is like a stone thrown  into a pond; the ripples from it  spread all through a community  and affect people who have nothing to do with the matter in dispute. I have read that in the last  century some American business  tycoon, when told that the public  would not stand for something he  proposed to do, remarked, 'Damn  the public! Strike'.  This is a state of affairs that  has got out of hand. The unions  were needed when they were first  formed, but surely by now labor  has grown up enough to settle  differences without always disrupting the public peace.  E. R. East  Gibsons, B. C.  Donors  Thanks  :��� .->i-v.  Editor:  Thank you to everyone who  supported the recent Red Cross  Raffle sponsored by Gibsons  Elementary School.  The students raised a total of  $366.70 - well over double their  original goal - and plan to purchase two wheelchairs through  the Red Cross for the Children's  Hospital in Vancouver.  1st prize in the raffle - an  electric Corn Popper, went to  Mrs. Doris Fuller, the librarian  at Gibsons Elementary. 2nd prize  of an electric Wall Clock was won  by Mr. Guy Winning of Gibsons.  Kristi McKinnon won a prize of  a Monopoly game for the student  selling the most books of tickets.  Special thanks to Don's Shoe  Store for kindly allowing the  school to display the prizes in  their store.  Colleen J.

Browning  Sechelt, B. C.  Editor:  It's not too often that one sees  or hears about young people  putting back into a system from  which they have derived great  personal rewards in the past.  Sunday and Monday, May 1st  and 2nd, a group of university  students, who happen to be good  volleyball players, did just that.  With no remuneration, nine students are travelling this and the  North Central part of the province  staging clinics and trying to leave  some of their expertise in the  small towns they visit. For two  weeks they will rely on the kindness of local people in these communities to give them food and  shelter.  Each of these students have a  number of things they could be  doing for the next two weeks. All  are sacrificing time which could  be spent working to help pay university expenses. Among the  students is an engineer, a mathematician, and a master's degree  student, all of whom will have to  spend some time devoted to  study while on this tour.  What was made clear to all  who contacted them here over  their two day stay, is that they  have gotten a lot out of their involvement with the sport and feel  a responsibility to give something  back to the system. In their  dealings with kids ranging in  age from 6 - 18, they worked  hard, gave good quality instruction and were always cheerful  and "good natured. Generally,  they left a good feeling with those  of us, adults and students alike,  who were fortunate enough to  come into contact with them.  Bob Cotter  History  Editor:  Slings and Arrows, always an  entertaining column, contained a  goodly amount of wit and humour  this week on the subject of history.  Very . uncharitable though,-/1  thought, to Henry Ford. "I'm'sure  that most of us from time to time  may have said "History is bunk",  or words to that effect. Does history tell us that Henry Ford, at  age sixteen also said, "I like  History", at age twenty-four said,  "History professors are probably  the wisest people in the world",  and at age sixty-two said, "That  is an important lesson from History"?  Also, when discussing the  cause of the rise of Italian Fascism, which history is Mr. Matthews  quoting,   ours  or   theirs?  Which reminds me, if it hadn't  been for the high quality of the  army vehicles built by Mr. Ford,  maybe there wouldn't be any  "ours"!  Who claims to understand the  rise and fall of powers in the  world? Do they know that the  NDP was elected in B.C. in 1972  because the licence plates were  red that year? Whose history will  record that? *  Henry Ford was able to foresee  the tremendous importance of the  American automobile. Perhaps  Ralph Nader's history will call  him'Bunk'.  D. F. Buck  North Vancouver, B.C.  Recycling  Editor:  Residents of the Sunshine Coast:  Throughout the reporting,  regional board discussions and  letters to the editor over the past  month, an insidious note has  crept in which is coloring the .  whole question of recycling on  the peninsula. Namely the constant reference to "Tom Haigh's  recycling", as though that were  somehow different from other  forms of recycling.  Are people to gather the idea  that I am some sort of charity  case who is asking for personal  "support"? Are the people of .,  the peninsula expected to vote  yes to recycling so that I can'  continue to have a job? For gosh  sake can we please get off that  track and address the issue that  is really at stake, which is recycling period. There is a recycling operation on the coast, it  is working, many people do use  it and want it to continue and it is  about to collapse. This has  nothing to do with me personally.  "Tom Haigh" is not about to  collapse.  Another theme that seems to  crop us everywhere is the question of efficiency.   'Tom Haigh's'  recycling is inefficient. This implies that there are other ways of  doing it that are more efficient,  yet specific suggestions as to  : exactly what these methods are,  ; never appear.  I have  visited  several  other  recycling depots in B. C, including the one in Vancouver, and  they operate basically the same  "way. So would these "efficiency"  experts please put up or shut up,  and lets get down to basics.   Do  those people who want to recycle  their garbage have a right to their  share   of the   general   garbage  kitty?  Or do they not?   And lets  ��� iiot hear any more about the "cost  ^'per ton".   The two kinds of garbage are not even comparable.  One ton of crushed glass is a hell  of a lot cleaner and more desirable than the same weight un-  crushed and piled somewhere.  "^All Peninsula Recycling needs  from the regional board for one  whole year is less than they spend  a month on garbage pick up and  dump maintenance.   They spend  $111,262. a year to get rid of garbage. For an extra $8,400. (which  would be matched by the Provincial     Government)     Pensinsula  "Recycling   could   carry   on   for  another year.  (The $5,000 figure  you keep reading about is seven  months at $700 a month until  referendum time.)  Please keep that in mind if you  respond to the questionnaire,  and should a referendum take  place, that is what the issue  should be. Any further talk about  "Tom Haigh's" recycling is  "merely superfluous.  .   Tom Haigh  P.S.

The  flowers that bloom in the spring  did just that in an expansive and  colourful manner for our display.  Harold Nelson, Mayor of Sechelt,  opened the show and paid tribute  to all gardeners by saying that  each of them makes an important  contribution to the appearance of  any settled area. He likened a  well kept garden to a-miniature  park. Mrs. Nelson kindly consented to be honorary hostess for  the afternoon tea and presided at  the head table for the early visitors.  On Wednesday of last week,  the club held its May meeting and  welcomed a number of new members. Mr. Guy Symonds of Gower  Point Road, Gibsons, gave a very  helpful and comprehensive talk  on the planning, soil preparation,  and planting of a vegetable garden. The development of such a  home garden gives many rewards. From the Garden Club to  the readers - Good Gardening.  Sound Construction  K     V  Carpen ter-Contractor  NX.

RECYCLING  QUESTIONNAIRE  In order to settle the contentious question of the  Sunshine Coast Regional District supporting a recycling operation for the area, the suggestion has  been made to have a referendum on the issue at the  time of the municipal elections in November 1977.  To maintain the present operation will require a  monthly subsidy of approximately $700, assuming a  matching grant is made by the Provincial Government. In order to establish whether such a subsidy  may be warranted until a referendum can be held  the Sunshine Coast Regional District would welcome  a response from the public on the following question:  "Are you in favour off the Regional District  financially supporting recycling until December 31st, 1977?"  |>iojr?

Cowrie Street 885-9626  A view ofthe Robertson II from a bosiin's chair hoisted to the top of the mast.  Education and adventure at sea  One of the largest schooners  on the coast put into Gibsons  last week. The Robertson II is  a non profit organization founded  by Dr. Philip Ney of Victoria.  It is dedicated to offering school  children a water version of the  Outward Bound course. The activities include skin diving, navigation, cod fishing, crabbing and  a wide range of nautical experiences.  She is 107 feet long, weighs  98 tons  and  is  similar to  the  Bluenose. Built in 1940 on the  east coast, she dory fished until  Jule 1974, when she was brought  up through the Panama Canal  and refitted back to her original  schooner design. '.'���''���'���  Three separate cruises are.  offered; Sail West, a weekend;  Sailor Maker, four days, and  West Trek, twelve days, which  includes a hike up the West  Coast Trail.  The Robertson II stopped here  for a minor mechanical repair,  she had. come over from the Gulf  Islands the night before under  sail with a good wind, an experienced, crew and two classes of  students from Calgary. From the  look on the faces aboard, everyone was having the time of their  lives. Under the watchful eye of  the crew, the students hoisted me  up in a bosun's chair to the top  ofthe forward mast (I didn't look  down till I go to the top). The  view was breathtaking, I would  highly recommend any educational system to keep this programme in mind as a part of the  school curriculum. It offers the  students good clean adventure  and may just make them think  twice before selling themselves  short on the cheap thrills of an  inexperienced foot on the gas  pedal of a hot car.

A little excerpt from the life  of me, trying to be the boss of  my own tanks: My first Siamese  fighting fish was a beautiful  blue male, I liked watching him,  but he would never let me organize the tank to my tastes. He  seemed to think that it was his  kingdom, just because he lived  there. I was an outsider, I'll  admit, but after all I was the  bread winner and wanted a bit of  say in what went on.  The fish were all quite tame  and I would feed them by hand,  holding the dry food between  my fingers and let them nibble  at it. When the fighting fish  came to stay all this changed,  he would circle around my fingers, not eating, just chasing  the other fish away and spoiling  all my fun. Obviously I couldn't  stand~for this," so whenever his  back was turned I would give  him a flick with my finger and  chase him away. "This would be  good for a few seconds and then  he would be back on guard duty.  He made his fatal mistake  finally. He got too close and I  got him a beauty which sent him  to the far bottom corner of the  tank, sulking, defeated. Victory  was mine. I was king again. All  my friendly fish came round to  nibble at my fingers again, they  knew who the real boss was.  The food was pretty well gone  and I was rubbing the last few  grains off my fingers, my attention was taken by something and  I had fingers dangling just under  the surface. The vanquished foe  from the far corner built up a  head of steam and did a kamikaze  attack head first into my poor  unsuspecting digits. I let out a  scream and jumped back. He  surveyed his territory calmly  and kept clear title to it from then  on.  P.S. When using the Startright  in your tanks make sure that it  is completely dissolved, there  are salt crystals in the mixture  and if they fall to the bottom,  the catfish could pick them up  when rummaging around, and in  extreme cases this could cause  death.  DOGWOOD   TAKEOUT  BY RICHARD PARKER  On a holiday recently I visited  a friend of mine in Kamloops.  Now Wayne calls Kamloops "a  rang-a-tang town" which as far  as I can define means that most  of the. population works shifts  and that as a consequence, the  town functions 24 hours a day.  The sight can be seen at 9:00 a.m.  on a pay-day, of respectable mill  and railway workers queuing up  outside the bars waiting for them  to open so that they can cash  their cheques received on the  graveyard shift.  To the uninitiated this presents  a somewhat unnerving appearance of a town inhabited largely  by drunks. For a population of  approximately 60,000 Kamloops  has 6 neighbourhood pubs, 4 or  5 liquor stores and about 10 hotels  so you can see that the frontier  image has lingered to good effect.  Anyway, having set the scene,  I was seated in the "David Thompson" with Wayne and his coworkers after their afternoon shift  at about 1:00 a.m. watching the  action. Wayne and his friends all  work for CN in some complex  function which involves breaking  down the train load tables as they  come through, car by car, for the  purpose of billing. The shop-talk  was flying around consisting of  "comstats, comtels, printouts  and printins" all of which passed  me by, until the phrase "FRED  was acting up tonight" caught my  ear. "Who is FRED? ", I inquired  during the next quiet moment as  the rock group gathered strength  for a further onslaught. "FRED  is our computer", was the reply.  Knowing the North American  penchant for making strange  names out of complex word  groupings, I inquired what FRED  stood for.  "*&*%#��& Ridiculous Electronic Device", came the reply.  I am finally going to mount one  of my favourite hobby horses.  It's the subject of smoking which  our revered Editor tackled a while  ago from his side of the fence, so  here comes one from the other  side.  I used to preach the benefits  of nonsmoking with all the zeal  of a Paul returning from the  Damascus road. In fact my  friends and parents considered  me a complete prig on the subject. Many and varied were the  threats made against me over the  years to keep quiet on the subject.   One of my favourite tricks  as a child was to leave the room  with as much fuss as possible  when a group of people started  smoking. Anything which would  arouse some feeling of guilt or  embarrasment. But as I grew  older this child-power faded and  I discovered that reasoning was  a non starter. The. hardened  smoker knows all the reasons for  quitting far better than the anti-  smoker.  To my mind it moves into the  realms of double think. On the  one hand he knows that it's not  good. for him and the Surgeon  General keeps telling him it's not  good for him, and yet he puffs  happily away. I think that is the  reason we get so many full packs  of cigarettes left in the Dogwood.  It's the subconscious saying  "I don't really want these",'but  he always comes back and buys  more.  As I empty table after table of  full ashtrays and as I stand at the  counter with my head in a permanent nicotine cloud as it passes  me to the extractor fan, I sometimes dream a little. Maybe if I  stopped selling cigarettes, maybe  if I made half the tables nonsmoking. Then my reality comes,  why don't I go and shoot myself  as it would have the same effect.  Even the subject of "I'm going  to quit tomorrow" - a hardy  perennial at the Dogwood no  longer causes me to rise like a fat  trout to the fly. On that subject  I think I have the final word. I  was one of the crew on a small  boat and a friend of mine, who  was the only smoker at three  packs a day, decided to quit. We  were to be on the fringes of civilization for about 6 weeks so we  convinced him that now was the  time and that cold turkey was the  only way. We cleansed the boat  of every cigarette and set sail.  We went through the climbing-  the-wall stage, the withdrawl,  the nail biting, the bad temper  and everything else. We progressed to the massive eating, "My  God I can smell things, My God  I can taste food, My God I can  breathe and I feel great". The  last week or so all seemed normal  and other topics besides his all-  exlusive problem made themselves heard at the dinner table.  We finally reached home base  and five minutes after we docked  that man had a cigarette in his  hand. All that blood, sweat and  tears for nothing.  Forty years of service  Pender Harbour Auxiliary to  St. Mary's Hospital is forty years  old. It intends to celebrate by  having a huge birthday cake and  public tea party. This celebration  is open to the public and is to be  held May 11th, at 2:30 p.m. in the  Canadian Legion Hall, Madeira  Park.  Seven years after the first St.  Mary's Hospital was opened in  Pender Harbour by Columbia  Coast Mission, some ladies ofthe  area formed a group to aid the  hospital. In May 1937 the first  meeting was held under the chairmanship of the late Mrs. Dan  Cameron. Membership dues  were 25$ to join and 10$ each  meeting. Meetings throughout  the years were held in the hospital, in members' homes, and later  in the Club House of Columbia  Coast Mission in Garden Bay.  The meetings were held on the  second Wednesday of each month  just as they still are.  The   money   raising   projects  were many'and varied and usually  very successful. Between 1937  and 1957 (20 years) the auxiliary  raised $20,000.  When it was necessary to move  the hospital to Sechelt, a more  central part of the peninsula,  the Pender Harbour Auxiliary  never stopped for a moment.  With the building of more roads,  transportation to meetings and  money raising events became  easier. Now our membership  helps, along with other auxiliaries  to St. Mary's Hospital, in the  Thrift Shop, in the Gift Shop at  the hospital, and put in many  hours helping to entertain the  patients. The big job, as always,  is raising funds for more equipment and necessities of the hospital.  As the oldest auxiliary on the  Sechelt Peninsula we are proud  to be able to invite you to bur  anniversary tea on May 11th,  1977 in the Legion Hall, Madeira  Park. Admission $1.00 with door  prizes.  Coast Furnishings  WOULD LIKE TO ANNOUNCE ITS LOW EVERYDAY PRICES  ARE YOU INTERESTED ?

CBC Radio  HOMAGE TO UPSTAIRS;  DOWNSTAIRS  Hudson. Lady Marjorie. Sarah.  James Bellamy. Rose. Georgina.  Mrs. Bridges^ If these names  ring no bells of nostalgia in your  mind, you obviously haven't  been exposed to what may well be  the best television series produced to date anywhere. They  are some of the unforgettable  characters who people Eaton'  Place in the fictional yet almost  realer-than-real-life world of  Upstairs; Downstairs. British  films and television have always  maintained a high level of quality  but this remarkable saga is in a  class by itself. It has the additional distinction of having been a  resounding hit in over forty  countries, disproving the depressing adage that excellence usually  draws poor audiences.  The series, conceived in part  by Jean Marsh who plays the  prudish but endearing upper  house-parlourmaid, Rose, spans  almost three decades, commencing in/1903 and ending in 1930.  It was originally conceived as a  thirteen-part series that would  cover only the Edwardian period.  Public reaction was. so overwhelmingly, favorable however, that  the show was extended to a  second year, then a third and  finally, a fourth. ( It would comprise in the end, fifty-six hours;  of superb entertainment (and  there are rumouredly several  additonal early episodes that  were for some reason, excluded  from the North American package.) I have seen most of the  available segments at least  once and would gladly sit through  any of them again.  The early episodes centre  around the escapades of the rebellious under house-parlourmaid, Sarah who refuses to accept  her place in the rigid scheme of  things. She leaves service to  become a music-hall performer  and has an affiar with James  Bellamy, son of Richard and Lady  Marjorie Bellamy, her former employers. She becomes pregnant,  returns to service and bears a  P&gen 7:��i?birr . a.'x.laf e - Lpg  Petet Trbwer  stillborn child. Eventually she  marries Thomas, the Welsh  chauffeur who also aspires to  higher things and they leave  Eaton Place together to go into  business. There are countless  plots and sub-plots, too numerous  to go into. Elizabeth, the Bellamy's headstrong^ spoiled  daughter marries a: homosexual  poet and Lady Marjorie has a  brief, poignant affair with one of  her son's friends. Most of the  pivotal characters are introduced  in these early chapters - Hudson,  marvellously played by Gordon  Jackson, as the punctilious butler; Angela Badderley as Mrs.  Bridges, the acerbic but kind-  hearted cook; the aforementioned  Jean Marsh as Rose; Lily" Tho-  masin as the. feckless scullery-  maid, Ruby to name a few. The  first series ends with the death  of King Edward VII.  The second sequence of episodes covers the period leading  up to the First World War. At  this point, Rachel' Gurney who  plays Lady Marjorie, was phased-  out of the series at her own request. This: elision was. accomplished very neatly by having her  go down with the Titanic enroute  to America. James; back from a  couple of years of disgrace in  India, courts and marries his  father's secretary, Hazel. Elizabeth dabbles in the suffragette  movement. Toward the end of  this second series, Elizabeth,  played by an actress whose name  escapes me, is also retired and  replaced by' a new character  called Georgina. She is the Bellamy's orphaned niece and is delightfully portrayed by the beauteous Lesley Anne Down. The  second sequence concludes with  the Declaration of War.  World War One provides the  backdrop for the third year of  the series. Eaton Place is affected in numerous ways, both upstairs and down. Rose becomes  a part-time bus-conductor and  Hudson, an air-raid warden.  James, played by Simon Williams  and Edward,, the footman, portrayed by Edward Beamey, see  action in the trenches as Major  and Private, respectively. Georgina becomes a nurse and is also  sent to France. Hazel works in  a canteen and becomes briefly  involved with a young flyer who  is subsequently killed. Richard  Bellamy, now a Conservative  .Minister, meets and marries his  second: wife, Virginia, a war  widow,, enticingly visualized by  the comely. Hannah Gordon.  James is wounded, nursed by  Georgina and shipped home.  Edward surfers shell-shock.  Prior to this, he has married  Daisy, the new under house-  parlormaid, played by Jacqueline  Tong. Finally, the war ends but  Hazel dies in the disastrous flu-  epidemic of 1919.  The final sixteen-episode  sequence unfolds in the 1920's.  It is a period of chaotic change  with the old systems and mores  collapsing like cardhouses around  the hapless Bellamys and their  loyal servants. In these last  chapters, the events center largely around James Bellamy and  Georgina. James is as out of  joint with the period as Georgina  is a part of it. She gads about as  a flapper with a wild, hard-  drinking, cocaine-sniffing crowd  while James stands disapproving-,  ly on the fringes. He has an unsuccessful fling at politics and  takes up flying. James is deeply  in love with his Cousin but she  is unable to live him in the same  way. Hudson suffers a heart-  attack but recovers. Georgina is  involved in a fatal.car accident.  She slows down her reckless lifestyle and becomes engaged to  a young Marquis. James, who  has gone to America, returns  after having made a minor fortune on the stock-market. He  talks Rose into investing her  small legacy and both are wiped-  out in the '29 Crash. James,  despondent beyond hope, takes  his own life. In the last chapter,  Eaton Place has to be sold to  pay off James' debts. An era  is over and the characters go  their sad and various ways.  Richard  and  Virginia retire  to  the country, taking Rose with  them as nursemaid for Virginia's  children. Edward and Daisy go  into service at another house  and he becomes a butler at last.  .Georgina marries,her Marquis.  Hudson and Mrs. Bridges also  get married and, along with  Ruby, depart for the seaside to  run a boarding-house. (This last  . situation was planned as a spinoff series but the idea was nipped  in the bud by the tragic and untimely death of Angela Badderley.) The long saga comes to a  close with Rose locking up the  great house for the last time  among the echoes of remembered  voices from the past.  I watched that ultimate and  very moving episode on Channel  Nine. It was followed by a combination farewell party and telethon that was quite unique in  television to my knowledge. It  says reams about the quality and  stature of the show that it should  have inspired such an event.  Available members of the cast  were flown in from all bver the  world. Urbane host for the American series, Alistair Cook, monitored the procedings and the ensuing conversations with the  various actors made for fascinating viewing. It was intriguing  to watch the various characters  in mufti discussing the roles that  brought them international fame. .  A particular surprise was Hannah  Gordon who, divested of the.  brown wig she wore as Virginia, -  proved to be a vivacious and considerably-younger blonde. The  entire affair was a fitting goodbye  to an unforgettable series.  All good things must come to  an end (although the show will  doubtless be around in reruns for  years to come) but there is hear-'  tening news for fans of quality  period drama.     John Hawkes-  worth, who produced and directed   Upstairs;   Downstairs,   has  'completed a new  series: called  The Duchess of Duke Street that  is also set in Edwardian times and ���  will air on PBS in the fall.  It has  already been shown in England  and the. intial reports are very.'  favorable.'"   ::���:. ���"*'>'  ji;j  n.GZti3?  .ly-'.'f  y-i  Kln-FUcks  Lisa Alther  Signet Books  In a sort of lengthy autobiographical garage sale, Lisa Alther  offers up five hundred pages of  her life for readers to rummage  through. Beginning with her high  school daze in a small town in  Tennessee, she traces her way  through leaving home, attending  college, dropping out to live on a  feminist commune, marrying the  local insurance and skidoo salesman, and finally returning home  again.    ���  Most of the characters here are  her lovers. They pass through the  narrative explicitly, beginning  with Joe-Bob, captain of the high  school football team, and Clem  Cloyd, the grungy motorcycle-  riding farinboy who takes her  verginity down in her parent's  fallout shelter one night. Madras  shirtwaists and penny loafers get  exchanged for big overalls and  "Sisterhood is Powerful" t-shirts  when Edna Holzer, lesbian activist, turns up across the hall at  college: But we're back to mix  and match polyester when the  heroine marries (more from a  need for stability than from a  sense of love) Ira Bliss, the insurance salesman who wants to  make love by the page numbers of  his sex manual.  Finally, the heroine is reduced  to nothing but her underwear,  and when Ira catches her out in  the family cemetery/ practicing  Hbidu sex postures; with an unbalanced ariny deserter, the marriage falls apart. Scenes of quiet  inner tragedy are balanced perfectly with exceptionally funny  scenes. Ms. Alther has a wonderful, very human sense of her own  absurdity, which makes this work  exceptionally compelling. Her  transitory lovers swirl on the surface of this book, but the portraits of the heroine, and her  slowly dying mother, reach much  deeper. Bright details, a brisk  style, and extremely well-drawn  characters all combine to.make.,;  this book memorable, these five  hundred pages elicit our fondness  for the heroine: How difficult  this is, to do. How well this book  does it.  Books with  John  Faustmann  Kleinzelt  Russell Hoban  Picador Books  Kleinzeit is trying to write a  toothpaste commercial. "How's  it going?" said the Creative Director from between his sideburns. "I think I've got it",  said Kleinzeit from under his  dandruff. "We open on a man  pushing a barrow full of rocks.  No music, just the. sound of his  breathing and the creaking of the  barrow and the sound of the rocks .  bumping along. Then we move in  for a close-up. Big smile as he  takes a tube of Bonzo out of his  pocket, holds it up, doesn't say  a word. What do you think?"...  "You're fired." said the Creative  Director in his tapered shirt."  Things aren't easy, and they  don't get any better for poor old  Kleinzeit. The world of London,  the tube stops, the cheap cafes,  the hospital and his tiny fiat all  turn strange, on him, as he falls  further and further into fantasy.  A slight pain from A to B makes  him check into the hospital,  where doctors: Pink, Fleshky,  Potluck and Krishna diagnose it  as trouble with his hypotenuse.  There may be some 'asymptotes'  in his diapason, as well, and the  case looks serious. Then his,  hospital bed starts talking to him,  and so does the hospital.  Death shows up. He looks like .  a small black hairy chimpanzee,  and hides under the bed making  rude jokes. Fortunately, Sister,  the beautiful night nurse arrives,  and she and Kleinzeit fall in  love. They meet in the bathroom,  where Kleinzeit has gone to play  his glockenspiel. Even the glockenspiel talks. In and out of  hospital, busking in the underground for spare change, mystery  starts getting layered on top of  itself. Kleinzeit starts writing  poetry, and the yellow paper  croons at him seductively. By  now the doctors have decided that  major surgery is required - a  Hypotenectomy, an Asymptoc-  tomy and a Strettoctomy at  least. God talks to him, advising  against surgery. ' 'What you need  is an interest," says God, "Find  yourself a girlfriend." And then,  Kleinzeit, out of hospital, in love,  managing to write a few pages a  day, ends up his story by taking  a walk with death. They go down  by the river, but on the way back,  death has somewhere else he  must be. What else could death  say in parting? "...see you."  "See you," said Kleinzeit. This  is pure, lyrical nonsense; a delight of language.  The Candy Factory  Sylvia Fraser  Signet Books  . The characters here are skimmed from the vats of bubbling  chocolate at Hunter Confectionary, a small candy factory in  Toronto. None of them are compelling enough to be likeable,  but they do manage to be real,  and exceptionally recognizable  as distinct types. There is Sam  Ryan, from sales, the grinning  blackslapper chauvinist with the  pin-ups all over the walls in his  head'. There is a token black  man, one Morgan Jones, who  shucks and jives around the place  and threatens to blow it up, all  the while being analysed by Beau  Whitehead, introspective government researcher. There are, as  well, the "girls in the line", who  make the candy, and are being  organized by a feminist co-worker, and two secretaries - the  crusty but lovable older one, Eve,  and the sexy younger oner Bri-  gitte, who can't spell.'' Charles  X., aging executive and. glib  seducer, and his frosty wife  Celeste, pretty'well round out  the cast, with the exception of  one or two others, and the mysterious Mary Moon, from the  Special Accounts section. The  book seems to battle its way from  page to page. Scenes built up to  confrontation, resolve themselves, and slide off again into  the distance. Midway through  the book its decided to have a  beauty contest to promote sales  for Valentine's Day. It's typical  that chesty Iriria Burbank from  Soft Centres division should end  up in a bathing suit as "Miss  Marshmallow Mounds", and predictable that she ends up in a  brawl with the factory feminist.  But despite the obligatory sensationalism, and the further required sexual descriptions, and  the cloying cuteness of the implied mysterious.narrator, this is  a fairly entertaining book. It's  a competent, humourous look  at life in a factory, and if the  people in it are more caricatures  than characters, at least they  carry with them enough recognizable humamty to make them  interesting. If nothing else,  they're sure to stick to your  teeth.   Pass the nougat please.

They  were a very enthusiastic bunch  of senior citizens and Penticton  is certainly lucky to have so  many dedicated citizens in their  town. I met them at the bus  and welcomed them to Gibsons  and the Sunshine Coast, guided  them up to the Cedars were  they stayed'overnight, also to the  Sunnycrest Motel, then brought  them down to the hall where we  had a couple of .hours of real toe-  tapping music supplied by Branch  #69 S.C.A. of Sechelt. Emory  Scott and his band of renown are  certainly the ones to get a party  going, and this one was no exception   because   if   you   can't  P��CES  This beautiful Family Room in the  f>ri2ei  3rd  4th  Prizei  Th  cha  Th  The  irs.

I  sincerely hope we entertained our  guests as they had had a long  road trip and some of them looked  a little pooped when they got off  the bus but it sure didn't take  too long for them to get limbered  up once the music started.  I wish to thank Mrs. Hale and  Mrs. Berry for arranging the trip  and hope that we will be able to  return the favor one of these  days, because to me it certainly  was a favour to see so many  senior citizens coming on a trip  like this to our Sunshine Coast  and especially to Harmony Halt.  It is my fervent wish" that they  have a wonderful trip on Vancouver Island and all return home  safe and sound, and that they  will take back memories of Harmony Branch #38 and come back  and visit us at their convenience.  I would also wish to thank our  R.C.M.P. detachment for services rendered in supplying officers and a courtesy car to bring  the visitors down to the hall.  Thanks again to the officers  involved for a good job well done.  Well so much for the entertainment, now to get down to the  business at hand, I am pleased  to notify you that Eva and Dick  Oliver are home again also Ed  and Molly Connor. I was up to  see Dick and Eva yesterday and  they are both pretty well pooped  out. Eva was telling me that  Dick had a very serious operation,  but came through with flying  colours so we expect to see them  around in a couple of weeks time.  I can't tell you how sorry I was  to receive the news that Louise  Barnes is leaving us and going to  live in Vancouver. Louise has  been a very diligent and faithful  worker for the branch and we are  certainly sorry to lose her, but  what is Gibsons' loss is Vancouver's gain, and I am sure she  will be getting involved in something in Vancouver which will  be for the better of all concerned.  We all love you Louise and are  sorry to see you go, but don't  forget you have a host of friends  here in Gibsons, who wish you  well and hope that you will come  and visit with us as often as possible. May your undertakings in  Vancouver be successful and may.  the Good Lord be with you always.  Glad to hear that Ralph Lynds  is out of hospital and home again.  He won't be able to do any gardening for quite a while or other  chores for that matter, but as  long as he doesn't try to overdo  things - which I am sure Vi won't  let him do - he will be OK. Welcome home Ralph and take care.  Well it is getting near the end  of the spring and Kay and I are  looking forward to getting away  for a while. We will be making a  tour of B. C.-.'I presume, for I  don't think there is any. nicer  country.than what we have here.  We have everthing here that is  comparable to any country in the  world and we intend to see as  much of it as we can.  A very grateful thanks to all  the ladies who did such a wonderful job at the reception, it was  just superb^ The tables were so  tastefully decorated and the food  was delicious. Thanks to all who  donated the food but could not  attend. We missed you and hope  you will be able to .attend our  next function. I believe that  these different get togethers are  worth attending, so make an  effort to get out and enjoy the  company of other people and get  away from that Boob Tube or  Idiot Box or whatever you wish to  call it. It is not a big thing to  ask and 1 am sure that once you  get out, you will realize what you  have been missing.  We didn't have a very good  response to the daily bus trips  at the last general meeting so we  are going to try and arrange a  picnic somewhere, maybe to  Porpoise Bay or somewhere here  on the Sunshine Coast so that we  won't have to depend on the ferries. This matter will be brought  up at the next general meeting  in June which will be the last  one of this season so I am giving  you lots of time to think up some  suggestions of what we can do.  Your travel committee will welcome any suggestions you wish to  put forward so bring them in  and lets go to work on them.  A trip is being arranged to  Squamish on the Royal Hudson  train on June 2nd. Contact Vi  Lynds at 886-7428 for further  details.  :������*������-  We are gradually getting the  utility shed finished in which we  can keep our grounds equipment  and clean up bur storage room  which is getting quite cluttered  up. John Holloway will be pleased to hear this as John is our  grounds keeper and will welcome  the new ride-around mower  which we have purchased and will  save John a lot of back-breaking  work.  Thanks to George Elander for  spreading out the fill that the village brought for us, it sure filled  in a lot of holes and just needs  grading off so I will be calling  for a work party one of these  days in the near future.  I am pleased to say that I have  most of my gardening done and  hope that I have put the seeds  right side up this time so that  maybe I will get a crop this year.  Winn Keene is doing a real good  job as Sunshine Convenor.and  phones me nearly every day to  report what she has been doing,  keep up the good work Winn, you  are doing a marvellous job,  making other people happy.  Well it is Thursday night and  it seems strange not going over  to the hall to call for the bingo  but I think the rest will do us all  good and we will be eager to go  again in September. Now that the  bingo is over for a while I would  like to thank all those who worked  so hard to make it a success.  Thanks also to Ernie Fossett and  Dick Blakeman for helping us get  started out, to Ken Stuart who  helped for the past month and  stayed with us to the end. Thanks  again to all those wonderful  . people who patronized us and we  hope to see you all back again  in September.  Well this letter is getting kind  of long so I must draw to a close;  so keep smiling all you good  friends and keep happy because  it doesn't take any effort to give  a smile and make someone happy. I am extremely glad to see  new members coming into our  branch so all I can say is keep  coming and keep our recording  secretary busy. Now I must  close as I believe I have given  you all the news to date.  A very Happy Mother's Day  to all you wonderful Mothers.

Senior Citizens'  Association takes place in Vancouver, May 16 to 18, Pender  Harbour's own Evelyn Olson will  sit in the president's chair and  conduct the formidable agenda.  Mrs. Olson, however, is not a  novice in the senior citizens'  cause nor is she a stranger to  hard work. She and Gladys  Brown, together in 1971, founded  . Branch 80 of the Senior Citizens'  Association in Pender Harbour.  It was not long afterward that  Mrs. Olson's energy and other  durable qualities were recognized  at the regional level and again at  provincial level. For four years  she has served simultaneously  on three levels: as president of  Pender Harbour's branch, as  president of the Sunshine Coast  Regional Council and as a mem  ber ofthe Provincial Executive.  In her new capacity as president ofthe B. C. Senior Citizens'  Association, she has under her  guidance 100 active branches of  the organization all over the province and as far north as Dawson  Creek, enrolling about 12,000.  members.  The main object of the Senior  Citizens' Association is to strive  for the material betterment of  the pensioners of B. C. and protect their rights and interests.  One of the instruments of this  work is the brief presented yearly  to government. The Senior Citizens' Association is one of 26  pensioners' societies affiliated  under the umbrella of the Federated Legislative Council. this  body shifts the resolutions  coming from the member groups  and presents them in brief form  to the Provincial Government.  The F.L.C. is one of only eight  groups endowed with this privilege. Another body, the National  Pensioners Association, prepares  the' brief of resolutions which  apply federally and presents it  to Ottawa. In this manner, the  frail voices of the elderly are  amplified in the high places of  the land.  Mrs. Olson herself is a modest  woman and favours the popular  course of keeping business meetings short. Speaking publicly,  she is concise and to the point.  When asked about her family  life, she answered, "I am a happy  wife and grandmother, and first  of all a housewife:" And stressed  further that she would never  allow her family responsibilities  to suffer from her public committments. So far, she'seems to be  handling both admirable.  Facts About  FUNERALS  ��� The local funeral home1  charges no fee for pie-amnging  and recording your funeral Instructions.

A short while ago Walter
Boucher received a visit from
R. F. Sheldon, the president and
Fredrick Higgs, the manager of
the B. C. and Yukon Chamber of
Mines. They presented Mr.
Boucher with a beautifully finished gold pan for his services to
the organization.
Mr. Boucher came from the
Isle of Mann with his family in
1890, they settled by Lake Eire
where his father ran a lumber
business. He moved out to B. C.
in 1917, from 1920 until, his retirement in 1945 he was the
manager of the Royal Bank on
Davie and Granville, from 1945
to 1963 he served as Honorary
Treasurer for the Chamber of
Mines and is now an honorary
life member. Mr. Boucher was
mainly responsible for the aquisi-
tion of the chambers' headquarters at 840 West Hastings.
When he moved to Gibsons in
1946 there were 38 telephones on
the whole peninsula and they
were run by Harry Winn out of
the old Credit Union building in
Gibsons, a far cry from today.
Walter now lives in Granthams
Landing in a pleasantly secluded
house with a beautiful view of
Howe Sound.

The usual S5.00 prize will be given for  I W/m\i ^-j _M_r_i  f t"ie first correct answer drawn from the 'hat' as to the  Miss Chris Ward presided over  Co-ordinating Council ofthe auxiliaries to St. Mary's Hospital,  with fifteen members present  in the board room of the hospital at 1:30 p.m. Tuesday, April  26th. Mrs. Muriel Eggins,  volunteer director, must have an  assistant for the junior volunteer  programme, if our Candystripers  are to continue receiving ^top-  notch leadership. Ten members  and the caretaker accomplished  a great deal of work at the 17th  April paint-in. The Sechelt  Auxiliary ladies prepared the  shop for painting, and they and  the Roberts Creek volunteers put  things back in order for business  as usual on Thursday. It is hoped  the job will be completed on 15th  of May, and members are urged  to help. New shelves have been  added, which helps keep the shop  tidier. The gift shop chairman,  Pauline    Lamb,    reported   that  several new items are now available. Film is now available for  126 and 110, plus magic cubes  and blue dot. Film can be sent  from the gift shop for development.  The board representative,  Doreen Dockar, gave us a brief  indoctination on responsibilities  of a hospital trustee. There is  a staggering amount of knowledge to be absorbed. Prospective members must be prepared  in advance to be a knowledgeable  representative. There can be no  "cold start" members. Our.  board member acts as liaison  between board and auxiliaries.  Communication between the  two is very important, making  for good rapport and understanding.  Mr. Vucurevich brought us up  to date with respect to hospital  equipment priorities. The auxiliaries are always happy to be in  a position to add to the effectiveness of our own hospital.  We hope in the not too distant  future to have facilities for a new  gift shop. We are looking for  ideas from other hospitals. We  are looking to the government for  encouragement in attending the  B.C.H.A. conventions. They are  important, but accommodation is  costly. We are looking forward  to a good turn-out for the blood  donor clinic. We would truly  love to be in the red.
