Arctic Harvester's  voyage of nostalgia  The Arctic Harvester is shown at anchor in Deserted Bay, Jervis Inlet.  The ship, the property of the Sechelt Indian Band, was free from its  duties as a leased research boat for the Fisheries and the Sechelt  Indian Band Council took the opportunity to take some of their senior  band members on a cruise of nostalgia back to a traditional home.  Environmental Studies seen Positive  By Allan Crean Crane  '" The7ptibHc'"business; meeting  of the Board of School Trustees  which I attended on Thursday,  Mayi26.li: in the School Board  Office was conducted in an efficient yet v convivial manner.  Trustee Fisher was: in the chair,  and trustees Clayton, Dombrowski, Douglas, Prescesky, Rotluff  and Spikermann were also in  attendance with District Superintendent Denley and Ann Robertson who acted as recording  secretary sitting in for Roy Mills  who is attending a secretary-  treasurers' convention.  Although there was much important business discussed at  this meeting, the subject which  generated the most excitement-  was the ongoing work towards a  programme of Native Environmental Studies. A full report  on this work is expected in the  form of a joint Indian Band/  School Board press release in  mid-June but in the meantime  it is gratifying to note the fresh  air of excited expectation wafting  throughout the area from Bowen  Island through to Langdale and  the school board office, on to the  Sechelt Indian Band Council  office, Egmont and all the way  to Tzoh-nye (Deserted Bay),  an ancestral home of the Sechelt  Indian Band which some of them  have revisited recently for the  ���first''time7 in thirty years or mbrey:  seeing also the Indian Islands off  Pender Harbour.  :: Trustee Clayton reported to  the meeting on her visit to Tzoh-  nye on Thursday, May 19th on  Clarence Joe's boat with Clarence  in attendance recounting local  folklore en route. Happily this  invaluable event has been captured for posterity by media  specialist Regan Brown, a graduate of Capilano College. Clarence's grandson, Hubie Joe was at  the helm, and Annie Quinn from  the Sechelt Indian Band came  along also with the band's economic advisor, Derwin Owen.  School board chairperson Celia  was unable to make this journey  because of a family committment,  but the school board was enthusiastically represented by  Maureen Clayton. Enthusiasm  was the keynote for the day and  was no less felt by Ron Fearn,  Rollie Hawes, Marta MacKown  and Ed Nicholson of the Sechelt  Teachers' Association. District  superintendent John Denley was  unable to make the boat journey  but joined the party at Tzoh-  nye, arriving by chartered plane.  His enthusiasm for this formative  Indian Band/School District  involvement in planning a combination of Native Environmental  Studies and Outdoor Education  was no less than that of the rest of  the party, and he spoke glowingly7  at the school board, meeting of  the districts' teachers writing  local curriculae and the limitless  possibilities of. this jointly developing concept which is being  watched with wrapt attention  not only by the Department of  Education but also by other  Indian Bands. Trustee Clayton  also spoke of the wonderful  job which local teachers were  doing in connection with this  exciting project.  One of the teachers with whom  I spoke was Marta MacKown who  has spent much of her time recently in the Sechelt Indian Band  Council's office working on curriculum development. She is quite  simply thrilled by the whole  concept, and indeed it does  appear to this not-quite-impartial  observer that a brand new educational consciousness is marching boldly forward to meet us.  By-law  The monies are allocated to the.  recently new construction. of  Chatelech Junior High School,  the continuing construction ofthe  Pratt Road Elementary School  and the upgrading programme at  Elphinstone Junior/Senior Secondary School.  Extra land  Trustee Prescesky emphasized  the need to acquire extra land  in connection with the new construction to take place on the site  of Pender Harbour Secondary  School. Tentative approval for  this has been recieved from the  Department of Education, but  correspondence to the owner(s)  of the possible expansion site  had not been answered at the  time of the meeting. It was  noted that the ministry did not  approve a request to include a  solar heating system, apparently  a continuation of the age-old  policy of no inovation until the  old people die off.  Regional  Board  t^j^.iv^^'*  After such news, the formal'  passage of School By-law No. 35  authorizing $340,000 of a total  Capital Expense Programme of  $1,338,530 which commenced in  1975   seems   almost   mundane,  Gibsons  Most of the houses which once stood in Deserted Bay have fallen down but this  hardy survivor stands precariously yet.  There was, some discussion  concerning the possible joint  funding of a swimming pool  between the board and the Village of Gibsons. While the board  agreed to the concept in principle  in that the board would support  it financially to the extent that  it would be used by the district's  schools, doubts were expressed  by Trustee Douglas as to the  suitability of the pool to school  In other school board news,  the resignations of Ms. B.  Hughes of Gibsons Elementary  School, Mrs. D. Goddard of  Elphinstone Secondary, and Mrs.  J. Lubin of Chatelech were received with regret and the applications for leaves of absence  from Mrs. L. Lawson and Mrs.  S. Audet both of Sechelt Elementary School and Mrs. C.  Pinkster of Gibsons Elementary  were approved.  Under new business the matter  of scholarship awards was discussed. Superintendent Denley  felt that good criteria had been  established for the proposed two  scholarships, and a committee  was proposed to' consist of a  trustee, principals of; the senior  secondary schools and Director  of  Instruction   John   Nicholson.  7 A short meeting of the Regional  Board held on Thursday, May  26th, was noticeable only for the  standing . count given on the  recent questionnaire on recycling.  It will be recalled that the  regional board had twice reached  deadlock on the subject of whether or not some interim financial  support, amounting to under  $5,000, be provided to Peninsula  Recycling to carry the operation  through until November when a  referendum can be presented to  the voting public as to whether  public monies should go into this  venture in the future.  The standing count given at  Thursday's meeting was 252  against recycling with 330 for  recycling. In the discussion that  followed the revelation of the  standing county, several board  members who had been against  the interim financing initially  indicated that, despite the favourable majority response from the  replying public, they did not intend to change their minds, nor  had they ever so intended.  After some discussion, Gibsons  representative on the board,  Jim Metzler, moved that the  matter be tabled until future  notice.  Ferry to  be leased?  There is a possibility that the  idle B.C. Ferry, the Queen of  Tsawwassen may be leased to.  Washington State interests for  use between Sydney, B.C. and  Anacortes, Washington. B.C.  Ferries Traffic Manager, Ken  Stratford, corroberated this possibility this week.  According to Stratford, an  enquiry has been received from  a resident of Anacortes Island  who claimed to represent a company called Puget Sound Navigation Company about the feasibility of leasing the idle ship.  The B.C. Ferry Corporation had  replied by wire asking for details  on how the inquiring company  intended to run the ship. "There  the matter for the moment  stands,'' said Stratford.  Deserted Bay, a few miles from the head of Jervis Inlet has  been a little less deserted of late. In the past couple of weeks  two separate parties have made special forays to the area - one  with an eye to the future, and the other with an eye to the past.  The first was a committee comprised of representatives of the  Sechelt Indian Band and local school teachers who went up to  the bay from Pender Harbour. What they had in mind was the  viewing of the place which was a summer homesite for the  Sechelt Indians till less than thirty years ago. It has been designated the location of a Native Environmental Studies course  which will be offered by the school board in the near future.  More details on this forward-looking course will be released  soon.  The second and more recent of the two forays saw the local  Indian Band take advantage of the brief availability of their  large and extremely well-appointed ship, Arctic Harvester, -  temporarily freed from its work in fisheries research for the  Federal Government - to take some of their older residents up  to cast a nostalgic eye on their old dwelling place. And not  their older residents only. Included in the party were many of  the people of middle years who had been born at the site, and  some younger people viewing the ancestral home for the first  time.  The Arctic Harvester which  took the party from Davis Bay to  Deserted Bay and return is a  particularly well-appointed ship.  Technically she has installed all  the very latest in sea-scanning  equipment and fishing gear and  the eating and sleeping quarters  verge on the luxurious. .Among  the non-Indians invited along on  the journey was an official of the  Department of Indian Affairs  who was quick to point put that  the Sechelt Band had received  no subsidy from the federal  government for the purchase of  their fine ship but had conceived  the project and financed it entirely without aid. He said that  throughout Canada the Sechelt  Indian Band was taking the lead  in showing enterprise and initiative and a sound grasp of business management.  The ship is captained by Bob  Baker of Lunenburg,  N.S. who  arrived to take command in  November 1976. Several of the  crew members have been associated with the ship since the  days of her building.  One such crew member, was  the cook who was instrumental  in preparing and preparing extremely well the day-long banquet that the lavish  hospitality  Among the eldest of the travellers were Liza August, Sarah  Baptiste, and Moses Billy. For  all three it was the first visit to  the place they had been born in  and had their children in many  years. Sarah Baptiste could  remember shooting ducks from  the window of her home. She  told a story also of German deserters from the First World War  hidden away in the hills above  Deserted Bay. They lived on  dried berries which they would  add water to in the winter. Sarah's father supplied them with  flour so that they could better  fare.  Deserted Bay itself is a flat,  green welcoming space among  towering mountains in the deep  corner on the right hand going  up, just as Jervis Inlet takes its  final abrupt turn on the left.  Alders and willows are now in  evidence but so too are old, old  apple trees, for this was an  orchard place. The hospitable  flatness stretches on both sides  ofthe Tsoh-nye River, a shallow  and beautifully picturesque river  which meanders gently to the sea  from three small lakes just back  of the Sechelt Band had provided    among the, mountains..... It is still  for the more than sixty voyagers. "     "'" ������    "-"���'���  Smoked     oysters,     deliciously-  prepared crab, the finest of clam-;  chowders, roast beef, roast ham,  chicken. All day and in great  abundance the rich fare appeared  from the kitchen. When the  guests, wearied a moment from  the deck-watching of the scenic  glories of Jervis Inlet, went  downstairs in search, perhaps,  for a cup of coffee only, it was  generally to find, that some new  culinary marvel had miraculously  and abundantly appeared.  a splendid steelhead river and  was once a notable salmon river  also, but higher up it has been  logged right to the banks and the  gravel has largely ruined it for  the salmon spawning.  As the Arctic Harvester approaches and docks in Deserted  Bay the mood of anticipation and  nostalgia quickens. Mothers with  grown children giggle girlishly  and recall incidents from the  berry-picking days of their youth.

Democracy  A few weeks ago, after the second  deadlock at the Regional Board level over  the question of whether or not Peninsula  Recycling should be supported until such  a time as the public could decide by  referendum whether or not recycling  should become a regular part of our  garbage disposal lives, this paper ran an  editorial commending the Regional Board  members for their decision to consult the  public on the matter. "Responsible  and responsive" was how we described  them.  It would now appear that we were  hasty in our commendation.of the board  members, particularly those who originally voted negative. They were, you  will recall, board members Pearson,  Paterson, Thompson and Mulligan. They  expressed themselves willing to consult  public opinion a few weeks ago. That  opinion has been consulted. Nearly six  hundred people answered the questionnaire. Of that number, just about 57%  expressed themselves as being in favour  of providing Peninsula Recycling the  interim support needed till the matter  can be finally resolved in November.  Now at least some of the directors in  opposition to the support of Peninsula  Recycling have defiantly declared that  they are not going to change their original  vote and furthermore that they never  intended to change it. Be it noted that  not one of the original four felt inclined  to change his vote after the receipt of  the returns from the questionnaire.  It would only take one such change to  break the deadlock.  Now let's be quite clear about this.  If the recycling of waste materials is  as much a necessary part of the future as  its proponents, including this paper,  think it is, it will come whether a few  stubborn regional-board members in this  particular regional board in this particular place dig their heels in or not: If it  is truly a tide born of necessity then all  that can happen to these members is  that they, will eventually look reactionary,  short-sighted, and foolish. If the supporters of recycling are wrong and it is not  a wave of the future, then none of this  matters much any how.  But there is something here that does  matter. It is this business of duplicity,  of misleading the public by a charade of  democratic concern.   We saw it recently  in the 'consultations' that went on with  the Ferry Corporation. Despite the outraged cries from the injured officials at  the ferry corporation when they felt  their integrity was being questioned,  the fact of the matter is that the ferry  schedules were being altered as an economy measure decreed by the government and the ferry officials had to effect  those economy measures or give up their  lucrative posts. Whatever pretense of  input was made, economies were going  to be effected - and they have been.  It is the position of this newspaper  that such staged and essentially meaningless exercises in pseudo-democracy  can lead eventually only to public cynicism and apathy and the death of democracy.  Now when the local regional board  members agree to consult public opinion  on an issue which they are incapable of  resolving because of deadlock and then .  decide to ignore the expression of that  public opinion, and indeed to announce  that at no time did they ever intend to  change their minds anyway, they have  betrayed the democratic principle. If  'any one of the four negative votes had  stood up and said at the time the questionnaire was proposed, "Look I don't  care what happens with this questionnaire, I'm not changing my mind. I'll  take my chances on my stand against  recycling with the public at election  time," then this paper would have no  quarrel with that member, except perhaps a philosophic one which time would  take care of in any case. But this is not  a philosophic dispute about recycling.  It is a question here about the democratic  process and the trust of the public. Do  not let a proposed questionnaire go unchallenged if you have no intention of  letting it change your mind. Stand up  and say so at the time of proposal! Not  to do so is less than honest. Finally it  is treating the public as though it contained nothing but fools. "Give the fools  a show of consultation and they'll be  quiet," is the attitude.  Now democracy in the fullness of history may prove at last to be an unworkable system, but in the meantime those  of us who have vestigial hopes for it  don't want to see it treated with contempt by those who certainly have no  better system to offer.  from the files of Coast Nam  5YEARSAGO  Members of the Driftwood Players  are off to Dawson Creek to present the  winning production "Suddenly Last  Summer".

Peterson  Musings  John Burnside  Slings & Arrows  George Matthews  It is, I was informed by the  Leisure Section of the Vancouver  Son, National Bodybuilding Week  in Canada. It may come as some-.  thing as a surprise, but I have  some considerable experience in  this field of human endeavour  even: though there is little evidence of it in my present expres-,  sion of being.  When I worked for the C.N.R.  in the fifites in Montreal as a  skinny, intense, late-blooming  adolescent I decided that steps  must be taken to render my body  beautiful. I mean the only way  you could tell me apart from the  , 97-pound weakling in the Charles  Atlas ads was that I was slightly  taller and wore glasses.  I studied the available opportunities for my literal self-aggrandizement. It seemed to me that  the best path available to the  beautiful body led through the  Billy Hill Gymnasium at 1010  St. Catherine Street, East in  Montreal. I can't imagine, now,  why I chose it. It was half-way  across the city from where I  worked and completely across the  city from where I lived, but there  I went. Billy Hill was an ex-Mr.  Canada and was really the.front  man for the Ben Weider organization which was just getting its  start and has since become international, I understand.  There I entered the strange  world of bench presses and  squats and arm curls and pullovers and a variety of other gut-  wrenching exercises designed to  pump oxygen and nutrition over  my scrawny frame and add  pounds of rippling muscles to a  body which I had been told by  jovial folks a hundred times looked as if it had spent some time in  Belsen concentration camp. I  gulped down great tasteless  spoonfuls of Ben Weider's own  concentrated protein powder.  Ate huge and equally tasteless  plates of restaurant-bought  spaghetti and, in short, paid  conscientious attention to the  business of beefiness.  To say that I was self-conscious  among the mountains of straining  muscle that I found inhabited  such establishments is to under- .  state to the point of the ridiculous. I did, however, find one  friend. His name was Hughie  Mark and he was from Ottawa  and was a couple of years older  than I was. Beside Hughie my  problems faded into insignificance - but only beside Hughie.  nearly non-existent. His face  was wrinkled and old.and sad,  bad-tempered with cruel treatment and the misfortune of his  existence, but he was a kindly  fellow and pathetically grateful  for even the most casually thrown  of the crumbs of kindliness.  He was employed by a blueprint company to deliver blueprints all over Montreal and he  walked prodigious distances to  save the price of the bus ticket  to augment his pittance of an  income. Sometimes as we walked  back west after our training stint  Hughie would fantasize about  how we would be professional  wrestlers after we had acquired  the necessary bulk. I was struggling to achieve one hundred and  twenty-five pounds at the time  and he was twenty pounds lighter  but I didn't have' the heart to  express skepticism.  We sweated and grunted under  the barbells faithfully for over a  year. Hughie virtually lived on  spaghetti and in the course of  the year had put on about twenty  pounds - most of it an incongruous, flabby spare tire around  his middle which only accentuated the deformed upper torso.  I got stronger but no bulkier. I  got stringier and stringier. Muscles rippled alright, but it was  more the march of a colony of  ants than the ponderous procession of a herd of elephants that  I envisioned at my most hopeful  when I had anticipated the dance  of the swollen tissue.  It was all very discouraging.  Of course, it was not incomprehensible. A standard "training"  day might see me walking about  two miles after work across the  city to the gym after being cooped  up in an office all day. I'd grab a  hasty pork chop along the way.  After an hour or so among the  sweating giants I'd walk back  west along St. Chaterine Street  and have a quick swim at the  Y.M.C.A. on Drummond Street.  Then I'd rendezvous with a few  friends for a quick hour of bowling,  catch the late  movie  and  fascinated me.. Sleep was something that happened when your  eyes fell shut.  I learned a lot about pectoral  muscles, and lateral muscles,  and body-builders, however. I  learned that even more indispensable than the barbells in such  establishments 'were the wall  mirrors. The name of the game  seemed to be nothing if not  Narcissism. Your standard bodybuilder, it seemed to me would  never dream of lifting as much as  a fly-swatter had he not a mirror  to admire himself in. In total  self-absorption and self-love they  preened before the mirrors and  each other, rippling various parts  of their anatomy like peacocks  who had been entirely plucked.  They talked of the women who  were always throwing themselves  at the mighty physiques - yet they  seemed to spend every waking  moment before the mirrors of  the gymnasium.  Eventually, I came to realize  that I just hadn't been programmed to sport a mighty bulk.  Twenty years later I remain  gaunt and emaciated-looking on  bad days and slim on those days  when I'm feeling good about myself. It no longer seems like such  a bad fate.  Hughie, too, gave up on his  dream of becoming a professional  wrestler and turned to country  records and religion, but I know  that in gymnasiums all across the  continent they're still before the  mirrors of their admiration puffing and posturing and this is  their designated week. The most  dedicated of them will be oiling  their lats and their pects and  rippling them under brief spotlights' in those strange male  beauty contests and I do not begrudge them their brief and bulky  glory. They will be a long time  old.  Behind every successful Liberal  you're likely to find a true blue  conservative. The trouble with  Canadian politics is, that behind  is almost always where the Conservatives are - not only in the cut  and thrust of political competition, but behind the times in  proposing acceptable solutions  to national problems.  The country clearly would  benefit from a strong and articulate conservative philosophy.  Where is it? When what conservatism needs is Edmond Burke  or William F. Buckley, what we  get are hot liners, car dealers  and child prodigies.  The Progressive Conservative  Party of Canada has become a  politically    and    philosophically  bankrupt organization.    Part of  the problem lies in the nature of  the times.    "Conservative" has  come to be equated with hidebound and obstinant dogmatism.  It   is   synonymous   with   mean,  stingy anti-people politics, hanging, regressive taxation, protection of the status quo, big business, Toronto lawyers, monopolies and the missionary position.  The P. C. Party has also cleverly  managed to acquire an image of  dullness  and negativism.     The  kind of "decency" arid "honour"  which    characterize    men    like  Robert Stanfield have been translated by the press into adjectives  like "boring" and  "unimaginative".  Last week's bye-election, while  an obvious Liberal "hustle" in  safe and predictable ridings, was  a case in point. Clear lines of  debate were never drawn, local  issues overwelmed the national  ones. Joe Clarke, while he  showed up, was unable to articulate the issues or their significance; given the national stage  for a week he chose to do the  shuffle. While Joe waited in the  wings getting his act together,  Pierre performed ah elegant little  song and dance number on a  totally spurious "national unity"  theme and stole the show.  The kind of conservatism we  need in this country is the kind  which gives us some plain and  straighforward alternatives to  the parties of the left and center;  He had been about two pounds at  birth, he said, and had suffered  through ridicule and physical  beatings at the hands of Ottawa  street gangs all his life. He was  five feet nine and weighed one  hundred and three pounds - and  he had heavy legs. His upper  torso wasn't just thin, it was very  home shortly after midnight.  I lost track of the number of times  I fell asleep on the old Number 91  Lachine street car which ran to  the south west corner of the city  and out along a track among factories to Lachine; Sometimes I  woke up in Lachine, paid another  fare and tried to stay awake on  the ride back into town. Once I  woke up halfway to Lachine  jumped out and stood shivering in  .the frigid dark a half an hour only  to be picked up- by the ' same  street car returning. All in all,  it was not a routine designed to  help in the gaining of weight but  I was young and living in the city  for the first time and everything  Octopus  by Pat Lowther  The octopus is beautifully  functional as an umbrella;  at rest a bag of rucked skin  sags like an empty scrotum  has jelled eyes sad and bored.  but taking flight: look  how lovely purposeful  in every part:  the jet vent smooth  as modern plumbing  the webbed pinwheel of tentacles  moving in perfect accord  like a machine dreamed  by Leonardo  the kind of conservatism which  represents toughness in decision  making, fiscal responsibility,  ethical wisdom, strong support of  our good institutions, ruthless  axing of the bad, and balanced  budgets. The kind of conservatism that has to be protected and  encouraged is the kind that carefully analyses new ideas and proposals and asks questions like,  Why? How much will it cost?  Who is going to pay for it? Who  is going to benefit? and What's  wrong with the way we did it  before?  The kind of conservatism we've  _been served up with, for the past  -few years is plainly unacceptable.  Certainly the party in power gets  to call the shots while the opposition's role is to criticize. The  Conservatives have been out of  office so long that they have  gained a reputation as nagging,  carping pessimists. Twenty years  of, "The Agriculture critic in  the Conservative caucus today  charged...", "Joe Clarke criti-  sised the government's proposed...", "The Conservative  caucus blasted the government  this "week for its..." tends to  create the impression that the  P.C.'s have nothing positive to  say about anything. Surely it  is time for a re-evaluation of  party policy.  Conservatism the world over  has fallen on bad times. Associated with the Depression, harsh  regimes, the Hitler era or the  military, conservatism' has hit  the skids. The Republican Party  in the U. S. has shrunk to insignificance by crawling into its ideological shell and refused to believe it is not 1925. The party of  Lincoln, Teddy Roosevelt and  Taft has become the party of  Harding, Joe McCarthy and  Nixon.  Today, a conservative is not  much more than a liberal with  money and a family tree. We are  living in a time when change has  become an- institution in itself -  any ideology which does not offer  "change" in the name of "progress" is dismissed as having no  validity. There is much more  that is good in our society than  is bad - how are we to conserve,  protect and nourish the good  institutions without strong representatives of conservatism?  We are changing so quickly and  so inexorably that when we eventually tire of change we will have  nothing left to fall back on.  Society will find itself obliged,  like it or not, to carry on changing, adopting, throwing out and  replacing.  To get back to the point, what  we are finding more and, more is  the necessity for the Liberal  Party to play the vital role .of  conservatism abdicated by the  inept P. C. 's. There "is a need and  a demand, in some circles, for  more government restraint and  fiscal responsibility. Restraint  and responsibility have traditio-.  naily been the Conservatives'  strong suite but where are they  when a large part of the country  perceives a need for them? They  appear to be residing at 24 Sussex  Drive and the Liberal Caucus  room. '-'y^^^xf^i^'i  Coast News, May 31,197/.  LETTERS to the EDITOR  Energy  Editor:  "Dad, I want a raise in my  allowance."  "Son, I can't even talk to you  about a raise in your allowance  until you kick the heroin habit.''  It doesn't make sense to even  talk about increasing expenditures in an area where money is  being outrageously wasted.  Similarly, the debate on whether  or not we should build the MacKenzie Valley Pipeline or the  Kitimat Pipeline should take into  the account the fact that North  Americans are energy junkies.  No amount of the sacrifices,  of money which might be better  invested in other needs of government or industry, no destruction  of the environment, no trampling  of native, rights will satisfy our  cravings for even bigger doses  of energy.  Behind the arguments for  making every imagineable sacrifice for more energy is the word  "demand". "How will we meet  the 'demand'.for more energy?"  is asked with the same hysteria  that an addict uses in satisfying  his 'demand' for another shot.  If we don't change our systems  of energy waste, what difference  does it make whether we make  this sacrifice or that sacrifice? In  the near future, none of them will  be enough to satisfy the craving.  With voluntary conservation  measures, Canada's energy requirements, by 1990, (13 years  from now), will need an additional  21 new Syncrude plants or 42  Pickering nuclear power stations.  So says Gordon McNabb, federal  deputy minister of Energy,  Mines and Resources (Toronto  Globe & Mail, May 9, 1977)  McNabb, by the way, is an optimist, who still predicts that  shortfall after assuming that 30%  of the gas we will be using in  1990 will be found between now  and then. It doesn't exist yet  as far as we know.  Voluntary energy conservation  means that thoughtful sharing  people will inconvenience themselves, but the result of their  sacrifice will be that more energy  will be available to be wasted  by the thoughtless and selfish.  Surely no one makes proposals  for"' "voluntary"    conservation'  with any serious expectation of  change.  .  The only fair way to share out  our diminishing energy supplies  is to start rationing, in spite of  its known defects.  Instead of being swayed by the  hysterical demands of our southern neighbours - the world champion wasters - we have to begin  to publicly discuss what our real  needs are and how they can be  more fairly satisfied from the  energy sources available.  The alternative, opening tanker  ports here and building pipelines  there, is to waste our country  'and its resources, to leave nothing for our children and their  children except even louder cries  from the Americans for "more".

Recycling  Editor:  I hate being in debt, and I  dislike being part of any organization or government that is constantly in debt, or that is being  run inefficiently. People want  the government to do too much  these days. They must realize  that they are the government;  municipal, regional, provincial  and federal, and everything they  want the government to do is  costing that person on the fixed  income more in taxes, or increasing the national debt, which is  already well over S650 Million.  I fear we will kill the goose that  lays the golden egg, and be in the  RED in more ways than one.  I believe in RECYCLING, and  Tom Haigh has succeeded in  making others aware of its benefits. Now he can drop the ball  and go on his way, knowing he  has made his point, that we'll  all be better for our awareness.  It is now up to us, and through  our service clubs can carry the  ball from here. This has been  done for years in communities  such as White Rock, why not  here?

Why not question, instead, the  existing, overall method of garbage handling? Why not combine  recycling and garbage pickup...  ecologically sound and possibly  less expensive than the present  generally accepted system?  Suppose   everyone   were   to:  1. Clean and flatten their tin  cans, stacking them in a special  container.  2. Periodically bundle their  newspapers.  3. Collect compostable materials  in separate container.  4. A third container for glass  items.  5. Finally, a separate container  for non-recyclables for burning  or land fill.  At the dump would be a special  enclosure or area set aside for  compostables. This would produce excellent material for organic gardening, top dressing for  lawns, etc. Many, many people  would patronize such a facility  even, possibly, paying for the  privilege.  This system, too, would cut  down on the cubic volume of  garbage - (flattened tin cans take  up very little space) and might  well result in fewer required pickups. And of course glass, cans,  bundled papers, scrap metal,  etc., are marketable items, so  here there would be some return.  Certainly there would be obstacles to overcome. No doubt a  great number of people would  consider this a most inconvenient  way of handling their garbage...  it would be a matter of making  these people aware of the developing ecological problems. It  might even be necessary to  REQUIRE that garbage be handled in a particular manner. I  realize that garbage collection  vehicles are not designed to  handle separated garbage, but  properly designed vehicles could  be phased in, no doubt.  On the other hand, to drop the  idea of recycling altogether would  be a step backward. It's worth a  good deal of thought, don't you  think?  Evans Hermon  The Sunshine Coast Community Resource Society held a fund  raising "Flea Market" sale at  Hackett Park during the Timber  Days celebration. Once again  good neighbours in the community gave their support. Successful results were due to many  people, from donors of the merchandise to the lovely ladies  who handled sales.  Special thanks to Sechelt  Building Supplies for . the loan  of their tarp and timbers and to  the Roberts Creek Community  Association for the use of their  hall tables.  Gold metals go to volunteers  Hilda Costerton, Jack MacLeod  and Ed Wray.    Hilda and Jack  worked for hours, from beginning  to the end of the sale and clean  up, as did Ed Wray, who transported, assembled and dismantled equipment and assisted  during the sale.  The Flea Market would not  have been possible without the  help of all these generous people.  The society extends it's sincere  appreciation.

It will be especially helpful to people who  suffer from long-term or unexpected illness. A brochure  outlining the plan in detail has been mailed to all householders in the province. Please read it carefully and keep  it handy for future reference. It would be wonderful if  none of us ever required this protection���but  if you should, we think you'll be relieved to  know it's there when it's needed.  t your pharmacist will be paid directly by  r Pharmacare.  .     "     ..��� -Xr,      :��� Xx '.''-v. j;:-���-.-������* XX  Are there any new benefits?  Yes. For the first time, ostomy supplies and  designated permanent prosthetic appliances will be fully  paid for. Syringes for diabetics are another new benefit.  Pharmacare will pay the supplier directly for these items.  W^      Who is not eligible for benefits?  The Hon. William Nl.  Vander Zalm  Minister of  Human  Resources  What are the changes under the  new plan?  For the first time, all individuals or families  registered with Medical Services Plan of British  Columbia are eligible for benefits. You will be reimbursed for 80% of any amount over $100 spent for  eligible prescription items in each calendar year. This  means that if such drugs cost you, for example, $300 in a  year, Pharmacare would pay $160.  Are existing benefits continuing?  Yes. Fully-paid benefits for eligible drug items will  continue unchanged if you:  1. are 65 years of age or older and hold a valid  Pharmacare card  2. receive the Handicapped Personal Income  Assistance allowance  3. hold a valid Mental Health  Benefits card  4. hold a valid Human  Resourses Medical  Benefits Program  "W" card for  yourself and your  dependents or  5. reside in a  licensed long-  term care facility.  If you are  the recipient of  f ullypaid benefits,  Tourists, transients and other temporary visitors to  British Columbia are ineligible for Pharmacare benefits.  People receiving fully-paid drug benefits from union- or  employer-sponsored plans, or from D.V.A., D.I.A.,  Workers' Compensation or Home Care will continue to  be protected by those programs.  What drug items are covered?  Most drugs prescribed by your doctor, dentist or  podiastrist are eligible. However, such items as patent  medicines, bandages, artificial sweeteners, vitamin  combinations, antacids, laxatives and over-the-counter  drugs will continue to be your own financial  responsibility.  Your pharmacist can advise you on specific items.  How are claims submitted?  To receive benefits, all you do is submit a  Pharmacare Claim Form, available from any pharmacist.  Unless you are receiving fully-paid benefits, your  pharmacist will give you an official Pharmacare receipt  when you pay for eligible items. Please attach the  receipt to the Claim Form. No duplicate receipts will  be issued.  Receipts for ostomy supplies and permanent  prosthetics should also be attached to the Claim Form,  and Extended Benefit portion of the form completed.  When you and your dependents have receipts  exceeding the annual $100 deductible amount, just  complete the front of the Claim Form. It is already  addressed. Simply fold and fasten it, affix sufficient  postage and drop it in the nearest mailbox.  Who can answer questions about  Universal Pharmacare?

KAJatH mews, May 31,1977.  i: CBC Radio  THE BELLE BAR CAFE  The City of Vancouver in what  I suppose, could be called my  salad days, was a less-complex  and much less-sophisticated  place. Streetcars still rattled  along their reliable tracks down  the centre of thoroughfares  measureably-less traffic-clogged  than they are today. In houses  innocent of T.V. antennae, fami-  lies still listened to Fred Allen  and Jack Benny or watched  second-run double-bills at the  neighbourhood movie-theatres.  The downtown area was a good  deal drabber and tackier in those  years of the late Forties and early  Fifties before redevelopment programs and clean-up campaigns.  It was a dowdy, gaudy, sometimes-dangerous, always-fascinating place. It seemed that time  moved slower then as it always  does when you're young but it  was also a more leisurely era.  Half the traumas that plague our  peace-of-mind in the Seventies  such as pollution, cancer-producing foods, dwindling fuel resources and over-population had  scarcely been recognized; let  alone publicized. The main threat  that hung over us was that of the  atom-bomb but the prospect of  nuclear doomsday was too horrific and imponderable to more  than fleetingly consider. World  War II was over and won. Ignorance, for the most part, was  bliss.  In the false-security of that  faraway period, we drifted aimlessly through the lax days of our  late teens and early twenties.  What we did a lot of was simply  hanging-out. We practiced this  activity (or passivity) in various  parts of the city and mainly in  cafes before we summoned up the  nerve to sneak into our first pubs  and hide in dim corners, trying  to look older. One factor that  governed our choice of hangouts  was  the  type  of music-system,  Paiges  from a Life-Log  Peter Trower  the restaurant in question contained. We favoured places that  had booth-jukeboxes of the type  known as Tel-A-Tone where you  could phone in requests to a  large central record library. The  quality ofthe food was incidental.  We seldom ordered more than  coffee or the odd hamburger  anyhow. In 1949, not too many  cafes boasted this type of jukebox and our quest for ones that  did, led us down Hastings  Street to the brink of the skid-  road and a narrow, hole-in-the-  wall establishment known as The  Belle Bar. It was to become our  downtown headquarters and  general rallying-place for several  years.  In aesthetic or any other terms,  The Belle Bar had little to offer.  It was an upholstered tunnel,  thirty feet wide and a hundred  and fifty deep, squeezed between  a second-rate hotel and a chintzy  furniture-store. Beyond the furniture-store, three-balled and  greedy, was one of the town's  more notorious pawn-shops.  The cafe had a short counter and  a few booths in the front; a double-row of booths in the back. It  was operated by a dyspeptic,  bespectacled man known only as  Mr. Brown and staffed by two or  three harried, overpainted but  friendly waitresses. It smelled  of stale bacon and general desperation. It was our home away  from home.  I habituated the back booths  along with my fellow explorers  from the suburbs, Deke, Dapper,  Bird and Joker. There we sipped  from illegal bottles through  straws, squandered untold nickels on the voracious juke-boxes  and waited for women. The Belle  Bar was also a magnet for adventurous girls from nearby offices  DISCARDED  GLASSES ?

Our styles were generally  cramped by lack of money and  these random trysts ended, more  often than not, in the backrow  seats of sleazy, adjacent theatres,  doggedly attempting to make-out.  Occasionally, when we were in  the chips, our dates took us  further afield into the uptown  nightclubs. On one such lucrative  evening, I managed to ensnare  an extremely pretty receptionist  called Jean and, hoping to impress her with my worldliness,  took her to The Cave to see her  favourite singer, Billy Eckstine.  It was a horrific fiasco. Jean,  demure as a kitten when sober,  proved to be an attention-seeking  witch after a few drinks. Eckstine  had just finished a set and was  leaving the stage when she  dashed from the table, accosted  him in front of the entire crowd  and began heaping unwarranted  insults on him. What her motive  was, I can't imagine. I could only  watch aghast. Next minute, the  bouncer was ushering us forcibly  towards the exit. It disabused me  of any further fixation on Jean..  Fortunately, not many of our Bell  Bar belles were prone to such  performances.  Apart from girls, The Belle  Bar was a rendezvous-point for  the leaders and lieutenants qf  several rival zoot-suit gangs  whose frequent rumbles kept the  cops and reporters busy. Curiously enough, it seemed by some  sort of unspoken agreement, to  have been declared a neutral  zone. The hoodlum kingpins sat  in their various booths, acknowledging each other with cold  nods,  if at all but they never  fought. The group I generally  travelled with was not a combative gang except when sorely  pressed but we kept a tacit, nodding acquaintance with the ones  that were and generally steered  clear of their home districts where  no such truces obtained. We  mainly observed.  One of the gangs that frequented The Belle Bar, hailed from  the eastend tenements and boasted some colourful members such  as Dewey the Gypsy, the sharpest  dresser in town and Shakey, a  spastic misfit who would later  become a panderer and finally  die as a murdered snitch in an  alley. Doom rode most of them  even then. We noticed that they  seemed to take an unusual number of trips to the jphn in the rear  of the place. Their behaviour was  frequently bemused and odd.  Finally, Mr. Brown, the owner,  followed a couple of them to" the  toilet and emerged irately, shouting things like: "Goddamn  addicts! Call the Narcotics  Squad!" The gang exited in a  hurry, not to be seen again on  those premises. We had encountered our first junkies.  We remained in good standing  with Mr. Brown and continued to  haunt his greasy-spoon precincts  for a couple more years. Gradually, we all drifted on to slightly  more constructive endeavours  and left the days of The Belle  Bar Cafe behind us.  Long after, I wandered back  along that luckless street to see  if the place still existed. It was  gone as though it had never been.  The store next door had expanded, squeezing it utterly out of  being. So much for one more  corrupt old outpost, I thought.  So much for my wilted and  shot-to-hell salad days.

Interview with director  JohnSchlesi  A High Wind In Jamaica  Richard Hughes  ByArdithKent  It has been said and I have to  agree, that A High Wind In  Jamaica is one of the best books  ever written about children and  Richard Hughes achieves it both  lovingly and honestly.  The plot involves a group of  children who are sent from Jamaica to England by sailing ship  in the latter half of the. nineteenth century in order to continue their education. En route  their ship is captured by pirates  off the coast of Cuba. The children are taken hostage to frighten  their ship's captain into telling  where his money is hidden.  Inadvertently, and much to the  pirate's consternation, thechild-  Books with  John  Faustmann  ren are left on board the pirate  ship. The original ship's crew,  believing the children to be dead,  depart.  Richard Hughes' writing  blends both humour and sadness which makes the interaction  between the characters very  believable.  Hughes stages the story toward the end of priacy's heyday,  when the pirates remaining in the  'business' are not the really  brutish ones of earlier times,  but are more mellow, kind-  hearted types.  As a result, the relationships  which develop between the pirates and children are not as one  might expect between pirate and  hostage.

Hughes fortunately avoids sentimentality which could easily  spring from such a situation.  Hughes' understanding of the  child's mind and world is both  perceptive and delightful. He  must have been a very observant  babysitter while in the presence  of Robert Graves' children, since  Hughes had none of his own when  he wrote this book. As he once  said, he had the advantage of  "seeing them as they really are  without the lies parents have to  tell themselves sometimes, without the precautions children have  to take".  This book stirred public controversy when it first appeared  in 1929 because of its portrayal  of children's behaviour, in particular, the fact that a ten year  old girl stabs to death a hostage  which the pirates have left in  her charge and she does not  confess to having done it.  Many people were unable to  believe a child would do such a  thing and if she did, surely she  would confess. The complexities  of the child's mind as treated so  realistically by Hughes "has done  more to change peoples' ideas  about children than all the works  of Freud".  This .novel reminds one how  separate and different the  childhood world is from the adult  world and makes the adult reader  delight in reminiscences of his  own forever vanished childhood  world.  The Sunshine Man  D. M. Clark  McClelland & Stewart  224 pp.  John Faustmann  Fat, ageing, seething and  emotionally constipated Figgy  Van Rijn is the hero here, in this  novel istic ballet for tuba and  tranquilizers. Figgy's wife is  leaving him because she knows  about the affair he's having with  'his secretary. Figgy's mother is  dying, inching away from life  a day at a time in her hospital  bed. Figgy's father is continually  violent, and when he and Figgy  meet at the bedside they argue  so loudly the nurses have to kick  them out. Meanwhile, Figgy has  a depressing job as a drug salesman, mortgage payments to  meet, a drinking problem, an  empty house that's a museum to  another bad marriage, and a boss  who anyone in their right mind  would throw under the wheels  of an oncoming bus. How does  poor Figgy come to grips with  all this? He gets nasty., He  breaks things. He goes to parties  and insults everyone. He beats  up the secretary when she says  she's leaving him. He sends  dirty underwear to his boss  through the mails, and he calls up  his wife and yells at her over the  phone. Clark catches it well.  Pleasant it isn't, but he deals  with it under a harsh, clear light  of prose. He writes the rage of  the lonely man, a victim of the  times, but mostly a victim of himself. The short chapters are  clear and intense, the anger is  hot enough to burn you as you  read. It ends in a likely confusion. As Figgy says: "There  are things you want and cannot  have; and things you have you  do not want. But try to sort them  out." D. M. Clark doesn't have  any answers, but his questions  are as familiar as the reflections  of ourselves.  > Coast News, May 31,1977.  Rod and Gun Club activities  The Sechelt Peninsula Rod and  Gun Club in its June 1977 bulletin his announced a varied program of activities for the - upcoming summer months.  The Season Fishing Derby is  already underway and will continue from its starting date of  May 1st to Labour Day. Tickets  are now available at $1.00 each.  The weigh-in stations will be at  all the marinas: Harold Nelson's,  the Big Maples Motel, and Budd  Fearnley's. There will be monthly top weight and draw prizes,  the grand prize, and another for  teenagers. Fishing boundaries  are from Gower Point to Secret  Cove out front and from Porpoise  Bay to tiie Skookumchuck in the  inlet.  The annual Seafood Dinner  and Salmon Barbecue will be held  at the Wilson Creek Clubhouse  on Sunday, June 26th at 6:00  p.m. The prize will be the same  as last year. Tickets will be at  George Flay's Barber Shop and  the C & S Hardware. Tickets  are limited to 125 so don't wait  too long to get yours. Come early  and watch the shoot between the  local boys and a team from Powell  River.  The annual dinner will also  see the presentation of the Gus  Crucil Trophy. Rod and Gun  Club members received a ballot  for the voting for this award  through the mail. Newer club  members are reminded that the  cup was donated to recognize  the work of the club member who  has contributed most to the welfare of the club during the year  and that it may not be awarded to  the same member who received  it last year.

Sunshine Coast Arts Program  l By Allan Crean Crane  A varied programme of entertainment concluded the annual  . general meeting of the Sunshine  I Coast Arts Council last Friday,  I May 27 at Whittaker House. This  ! was preceded by the business  J part of the meeting which saw  ; the election of King Anderson,  ; Trudy Small and Faye Birkin as  ; Directors of the Council. Joan  ; Marshall, Ola Arnold, Shirley  ; Apsouris and Clarke Steabner,  1 whose two year terms expire  ; this June, allowed their names to  ' stand for re-election and were so  ��� acclaimed. John    Burnside,  Vivian Chamberlain, Yvette Kent  and Doris Crowston are entering  the second year of the two year  term for which they were elected  in 1976.  In other council business, it  was announced by Director Steabner that no building on the new  construction planned to accommodate the "Sunshine Coast  Arts Council could commence  before early August. Sechelt  Village Council have approved  the site in principle, and preliminary tests are in process.  The proceeds of two raffles have  accrued to the building fund  which was established to raise  funds for the new building itself.  The federal grant mostly covers  labour costs. B. Duteau of Gibsons won a painting by Charles  Murray, and Pauline Pollock of  Madeira Park won a painting by  Alice Murray.  The Paula Ross Dancers were  announced to perform at 8:00  ' p.m. in the gymnasium of Elphin-  . stone Secondary School on Saturday, June 4th. Further details  are advertised elsewhere in this  newspaper.  One further piece of business  directly related to the entertainment section of the meeting  was the Annual Student Scholarship Award of $150. This award  was presented to thirteen year  old Mario Reiche of Gibsons, a  student at Elphinstone Secondary  . School where he plays clarinet in  the school band. Mario's musical  activities do not, however, stop  there. He has been studying  piano for several years now, and  for three years has been studying  accordion with Mr. John Risbey  of Sechelt. He has won prizes  at Bob Dressler's Accordion Festival in Vancouver and also at the  local Kiwanis Festival. His teachers say that Mario never has  "to be told to practice because he  is so highly self-motivated.  On Friday, Mario played Bill  Palmer's Gypsy Dance for us on  his accordion. He seemed to be  nervous and had a couple of  anxious moments, but he played  with good control of dynamics  and phrasing and a fine sense of  style.  Mario's performance was followed by that of the Raincoast  Madrigal Singers who performed  four madrigals for us.  The performances of these  madrigals were generally sound  and secure. These were pleasing  performances.  The next item on the agenda  was a performance of Pietro  Locatelli's (1695-1764) Suite for  flute and harpsichord in a trans- .  cription for clarinet and guitar  played by Ron Watts and Clarke  Steabner   respectively.  The evening concluded with  another .treat in the person of  mime artist , Gerardo Avilla.  Sketches such as 'The Magician'  and 'Suicide' were greeted with  wrapt attention and often uproarious laughter. In 'Suicide',  the 'gun' took on a life of its  own. Local colour was provided  by the sketch 'The Twilight  Theatre' about the spectator nobody wants. Mr. Avilla's performances were soundly applauded by approximately thirty persons who crowded into the small  downstairs room in Whittaker  House where these performances  took place. He is an engaging  and talented artist.  The Sunshine Coast Arts Council is to be commended on this  enterprising and enjoyable programme  of  entertainment.      It  is to be hoped that the proposed  new home for the council will include a performing space where  larger audiences may be housed  so that more people will have the  opportunity to enjoy entertainment of the calibre which we enjoyed last Friday.

It was such a  short visit that we never really  got acquainted as they could  only stay and visit with us for a  little over one hour, but they are  certainly welcome to come and  visit with us at any time and we  certainly hope their stay will be  longer. They are truly a bunch  of pioneers, many of them over 80  years of age and I assure you it  was a pleasure to have them visit  us. Some of them were former  Gibsons residents and were they  ever pleased to visit their former  hometown. There were about 45  in all and about 35 or 40 of our  own members so you can see we  had quite a nice tournament.  It was too bad the weather man  did not co-operate to the full, but  you can't expect everything to  go right the first time. One lady  visitor is I believe the treasurer  of Branch #97 and I am sorry I  don't remember her name but  however, she will be a sprightly  86 years old on Sunday, so we  all wished her a very happy  birthday with Eva Oliver doing  the honors on the piano. I would  like to extend my thanks to all  our lady members who as usual  did a wonderful job in the catering. Everything was done up  lovely.  Glad to see our old buddy Dick  Oliver up and around again,  good to see you back Dick.

C.  885-3255  know I will be in for a bad time  now that you are able to get  around but I am tough and can  take it.  I must say that I am pleased  to hear all the favourable comments on our hall. Everyone  seemed to be very impressed  with it so to all who helped build  it, I pass the word on to you  that your efforts were not in vain.  Everyone is so pleased with all  the equipment we have in the  kitchen and hall that it is no  trouble at all renting it out.  I never realized at the start  after we opened our hall that it  would become so popular but it  seems that it is getting to be the  most popular place in town and I  am certainly pleased that it is  becoming so. Thanks to our hall  committee of Wally Green, John  Holloway and Art Cherry who are  doing a fabulous job of renting it  out.  While I am on the subject of  the hall, I would like to extend my  grateful thanks to Wally Green  for installing the doors and ramp  to our utility shed. I know with  that Million Dollar Smile on John  Holloway's face you have made  him very happy too.  As I said previously it was a  pleasure to see so many of our  own members turn out to greet  our visitors from North Vancouver. It is like I said in one of my  previous columns, it is not too  hard to make the effort to get  away from the boob tube or idiot  box as I referred to it. You can't  imagine what you are missing by  not getting out and meeting  people that come to visit us.  In this way we are becoming more  and more involved in the Old  Age Pensioners Program which is  what we should be doing and  fighting for what is rightfully  ours.  We have helped to build up  this country and I know it is in a  mess these days, thanks to a few  hungry millionaire would-be-politicians who could care less for  what happens to the like of you  and me as long as they have  plenty to live on and a nice,  cushy job. So lets get out and  fight for what is rightfully ours  and let us think that we are doing  it not for ourselves only but for  those who are going to be, in  the future, in the same predica-  Bulk Imported Cheeses  Fresh European  Meats & Sausage  and a full line of  ; Table Ready Foods  ��� DELICATESSEN  ��� CAFETERIA  ^ Sunnycrest Centre  Important  for party line  customers.

I am beginning to sound like  a politician, I know, but I am beginning to see the light and the  way our country is going, the  light is very dim.  Well that is enough of politics  so to get on with the travel subject, Continental Travel in Sechelt  have informed me they have a  large bus, about 65 passengers,  for the trip to Squamish on Thursday, June 2nd. They informed  me that we have to take the 6:30  a.m. ferry from Langdale so be  sure and set your alarm clocks  so that you will be up in plenty  of time. There will be 3 places  where passengers can be picked  up and they are as follows:  Elson Glass, Pratt Road and  Highway 101, Andy's Drive-in  across from Elphinstone High  School, and the Bus Depot in  Gibsons Village.  Anyone desiring transportation  contact me at the hall next Wednesday at the carpet bowling arid  we will see what arrangments  can be made. Mr...Ben of Continental Travel also informed me  that he has made arrangements at  a place in North Vancouver where  those desirous of having breakfast may do so. Don't forget to  bring along a picnic lunch to eat  in the picnic grounds at Squamish  and for those who do not wish to  make one, there are quite a few  good cafes in Squamish where  you can eat.  Now to get onto another subject, don't forget what I said in  the last issue about suggestions  for day trips at the next general  meeting, it will be the last chance  to submit them. We are working  on 2 or 3 now but will need more  so that we will be able to pick  out the most favourable to all  concerned.  We are contemplating a trip  to Penticton in early September  if we can get enough to go. We  have the invitation to go and visit  Branch #7 up there and I think it  would be a nice gesture on our  part to return the visit. They are  as you know a wonderful bunch  of people up there and it would  give us a better chance to get  acquainted. So how about it  folks, let's kick it around at our  next general meeting in June.  Well I am just about out of news  so I must draw to a close by  reminding you of the following  dates. Those wishing transportation to the various pick-up  points see me over at the hall on  Wednesday, June 1st between  1:00 p.m. and 4:00, Thursday  June 2nd, trip to Squamish 6:30  a.m. ferry, Monday June 6th,  general meeting.  This truly is what is known as a mobile home. Believe it or not, this bird's nest  is located in the Crowsnest atop the mast of the Sechelt Indian Band's ship, the  Arctic Harvester. It is not immediately known how or if the parents keep track of it.  Trip to Deserted Bay (cont'd)  "We saw this bear picking  berries on the other side of the  same bush and we were scared  so we ran to the boat. .Just then  Jamie came down the trail. He  wanted to scare us so he pulled  the bush open and made a big  noise, and he was face to face  with the bear. He passed us  running to the boat and ran  right by it."  The boat docks and the whaler  is swung over the side and all  but the elderly are going ashore  for a couple of hours. Clarence  Joe, Jr.- ferries the visitors over  in eager groups of nine or ten.  Yuonne. Joe points to a' rock at  the far side of the small sub-bay  called Goof Bay and says, "That's  my pouting rock. That's where  I'd go pout when Gilbert and I  had a fight."  Ashore the parties wander  along the logging roads among  birdsong. Higher up the mountain the logging machines grunt  and wheeze and whine. The  whistle-punk's signals jab the  air. Below absorbed in memories  and greenery the parties wander  to their own lost homes. Only  one house still stands here now  and that one shakily. Salmon  berry stalks are peeled and eaten.  More memories. "Do you remember how we used to swim  under the log booms while our  mothers yelled at us to stop?"  The matrons giggle. "One time  the dog tried to follow us and we  thought he'd drown, but he came  up again." There are cheerful  memories of a happy place, of  summertimes reprieved from the  onerous imposition of the white  man's residential schools.  Through the green shade and  across the crumbling bridge over  the clear-running river we wander  till the imperious hoot of the Arctic Harvester too soon reminds  us it is time to go. Reluctantly  and in smaller groups than set  out we straggle back to where  the whaler waits to ferry us back  to the mother ship. As we go we  gaze towards the mountains  above the bay with their freshly  fallen snow and the unseen lakes.  Too soon away.  Soon we are aboard and the  business of getting underway is  taken in hand. Old Moses Billy  looks once more with tears.  "The last time," he says and  goes below to rest in a bunk, his  eyes long bright with recollection.  The way home is quieter. The  food is just as good. It has been  a good day in Jervis Inlet. The  Arctic Harvester pulls into Davis  Bay just about on time. The  visitors file off, trying to give  adequate thanks for the voyage  and the hospitality they have  enjoyed this day. "We are glad  you enjoyed yourselves," say  our hosts and take their old  people home.  Lockstead reports  The premier's announced 20  percent reduction in ferry rates  actually represents a 70 percent  increase for the people of British  Columbia, said Don Lockstead,  NDP Transportation critic and  M.L.A. for MacKenzie.

"The government was in possession of a report just prior to  their increasing the rates that  recommended nothing more than  a 20 percent increase in rates.  They ignored that report and  used their own form of ad-hoc  planning in raising the rates,"  said Lockstead.  Lockstead went on to say that  the repercussions of raising the  ferry rates "have been far ranging and have created havoc -in  the coastal communities dependent on the ferries for their  economic stability. This gang of  millionaires for all their boasting  about being such competent  business people have blindly  charged ahead with no consideration for the economic shock waves  they send through the communities with their actions."  Mr. Lockstead expressed dismay over the lack of action by  the government in regards to the  transportation problems of the  north and central coast of B.C.  "They made  a promise  to the  London  Hawaii  Register NOW Space already Limited  AUTHORIZED AGENT FOR:  * WARDAIR  *CPAIR  ���SUNFLIGHT  'WESTERN AIRLINES  * LAND, SEA AND AIR TOURS  1212 Cowrie St. Sechelt  people of those areas and they  have been waiting patiently for  some action. I have talked with  the people of those communities  and they are truly experiencing  hardship as a result of the lack  of action on the part of the  government."  Lockstead said, "It is sad to  see a government scrambling to  find some sort of stimulus for  the economy. They are their jown  worst enemy. They put the  rates up over 100 percent and  then turn around and drop them  20. Clearly that is the action of  a government with no direction  and one that is desperate to try  and redeem itself in the public  eye."  Rod and  Gun Club  Among the last of his official  duties as Conservation Officer of  this area before his retirement  at the end of May, Pat Mulligan  presented the graduation certificates and Fish & Wildlife badges  to twenty-one students who were  successful in achieving the required passing grade of 70% in  their recent examinations following this spring's Conservation  and Outdoor Recreation Education Program sponsored by the  Sechelt Peninsula Rod & Gun  Club.  The instructors this year were  Bea Rankin, Bill Rankin, Lou  Rowland, Fred Cotton, Bob Janis,  George Flay, Joe Mellis, Len  Clarke and Harold Nelson. The  successful students were topped  by Derek Everard with 97%  closely followed by Steven ONO  95%, Gary Thomas and David  Maedel 93%, Herbert Ono and  Dale Maedel 92%, and Lynda  Olsen and Pat Thompson 90%.

Pender May Day  Coast News, May 31,1977.  Strikes  and  spares  Pleasant weather and cheerful  relaxed crowds were the order of  the day at the Pender Harbour  May Day Festivities held on  Saturday, May 28th, in the  grounds of the Madeira Park  Elementary School.  Perhaps the big attention getter of the day were the wristwrestling championships. Co-  referee at the tournament was  Heinz Huesmann, the Heavyweight Wrist-wrestling Champion of the World in 1974. Huesmann commented at the conclusion of the tournament that it  was a long time since he'd seen  a tournament-go more smoothly.  He attributed the smoothness to  the evident community spirit.  In the actual competition,  Sandy Hately of Pender Harbour .  was the big winner. He first  won his own division, the middleweight, with Bill Peters second,  and Chic Page of Pender Harbour  third. Not content with his victory, Hately then challenged the  winner of the heavyweight division, Loy Haas of Pender Har  bour and succeeded in defeating  the heavier man to wind up champion in both categories. Gerald  Bockrant of Madeira Park came  in third among the heavies. To  cap off a successful day, Hately  also won the caber toss.  In the Featherweight Division  of the Wrist-wrestling Pierre  Berdahl of Gibsons was the champion, with Victor Harrison, also  of Gibsons, in second place and  Art Johnson of Sechelt in third  place. In the Lightweight Division, the winner was Harry Kammerle of Madeira Park, with  James B. Crick of Sechelt in  second place, and Louis Cote  of Pender Harbour in third place.  A member of the organization  committee of the Wrest-wrest-  ling Committee told the Coast  News that the committee hopes to  organize a Secondary School  Competition in the near future.  In other athletic competition  of the day Mark Carswell took  first place in the axe-throwing  competition.  300 games keep coming in the  Spring League.

In all probability, a lone young  animal's mother is hiding or  feeding nearby, and any human  interference with her youngster  would be extremely distressing  to both animals.  Don Robinson, acting director  of the Ministry's fish and wildlife branch said that on those rare  occasions when a young animal  has actually been left to its own  devices, the recommended procedure is to contact the. local  conservation officer at the nearest  fish and wildlife district office.  ^\yf jC>z��Lqn & (2u-tomLzlna  i  TRUCKS   |  VANS   1  CARS  Box 931  Gibsons, B.

But Success is measured  quite differently at TOPS, I'ts  not measured by objects, spoonfuls or drops, It's not in things  added, but it's achieved at great  cost; It's in things subtracted -  the pounds we have lost!"

Nutrition notes  QUESTION: What is the fluid  requirement ofthe average adult?  ANSWER: The average adult  can meet his/her daily fluid  requirement by consuming at  least 1.5 litre (50-60 oz.) of fluid  from beverages (water, tea, coffee, juices, milk) and foods (soups  fruits, vegetables, etc.). Fluid  requirements may vary with degree of activity, temperature,  and the amount of water lost  through perspiration.  QUESTION: Can you heat commercial baby food in a microwave oven?  ANSWER: In order to evenly  heat baby food in a microwave  oven, the food should be removed  from the jar or can and placed  into a fruit nappy. Partially heat,  : stir, and finish heating to desired  temperature.  QUESTION: I understand that  the term, calorie, is being abandoned now that Canada is going  metric. Could you please give  me the new term and its conversions into calories?  ANSWER: The term being introduced to measure the energy  derived from foods is the kilo-  joule. One kilojoule (KJ) is the  unit of energy approximately  equal to .239 kilocalories of heat  energy. The revised nutrient  value tables will look like this:  Milk, fluid (3.5% butterfat)  250 ml. = 704 KJ rather than  I cup = 160 calories.

Dogwood Takeout  MURRAY'S  Garden &  Pet Supplies  BARK MULCH  $2.29  SACK  886-2919  By RICHARD PARKER  After reading the Editor's  piece on the subject of forgetful-  ness, I would like to add two  memories of my father which  were!brought to mind by some of  John's stories. My fathers speciality was keys and as he ran a  pub for many years he had ample  opportunity for losing many sets.  There is no more frustrating  moment than the entire household having searched for hours,  the customers pounding on the  door and threatening to go to the  boozer down the road, and my  father reaching into a fob pocket  in his waistcoat and producing  the missing keys with all the  pleased surprise of an amateur  conjurer getting a rabbit out of  a hat for the first time.  He was also intrigued by new  gadgets and when aerosols 'first  came out the house filled up with  a dozen different cans. Until one  morning he emerged from the  bathroom muttering and mumbling and to the amazed gaze of  the family, appeared to be infested with some giant fungus  which was attacking his armpits.  On closer inspection, you guessed  it, it was found that he had grabbed the shave-foam can under  the misapprehension that it was  the deodorant with consequent  disastrous results.  In a similar vein the Dogwood  has its fair share of moments of  pure comedy. I was in the process of concocting hamburgers  one day and hearing a strangled  cry glanced up to see what appeared to be the ceiling and wall  covered with blood. While looking for the body I noticed two of  our regular customers staring  redfaced at each other. Under a  little prompting the story came  out. One of them had been about  to layer ketchup on his omlette  and was holding the satchet in  which we supply this item in one  hand. His partner made some  comment which caused a momentary emotional outburst and an  involuntary clenching of the fist,  forgetting about the sachet with  the result that the cafe appeared  to be involved in Gibson's version  of the St. Valentines Day massacre.  Finally, if I may end on a personal note. To all the customers  . who have and to all the customers  who will come up to me and order  a hamburger or whatever and 10  minutes later come up patiently  to remind me again as I potter  about the kitchen in a mental  fog. My heartfelt apologies,  but my old man never got any  better and I don't think I will.  Talk  Last issue I wrote on 2 of the  main fish ailments which was ich  and velvet. I shall continue this  issue with a few others, one of  which is probably the most pronounced locally, is fungus. This  may appear as mouth fungus,  tail rot, infected wounds and  badly bruised fish.  This can be recognized by a  white or whitish-grey area on  the infected fish. With mouth  fungus it is seen around the lips,  with fin or tail rot it may not show  as a fungus but can be easily seen  as decaying fins or tail as it becomes more pronounced. In  wounds it is easily seen but badly  bruised fish are not as noticable  until a few days has passed.  One of the best cures I have  used is put out by the Jungle  Laboratories people, the name is  Fungus Stop. There are several  other cures. on the aquarium  dealers' shelves which are also  good cures.  Another disease which is present locally is Neon Tetra disease.  When this strikes the neons, it  will be seen at the base of the  tail and at first causes the red  colour found there, to turn a  pinkish colour. Later this will  turn white or tan and the section  affected will rot. So far I have  never cured this disease in my  aquariums, but should it reappear  I will try the following which I  just found out about, use commercial formaldehyde, 2 drops to  the gallon. According to the  author of this remedy, it will  cure tetras in a matter of hours.  Another and probably the most  hidden of "diseases" is chemical  or metallic poisoning. The first  sign of this problem is the fish  all move toward the surface to  try and get more air, the next  being the fish starting to shimmy  and fold their fins back against  their bodies. Very soon after  they will go to the bottom and  lie there, being very listless and  lastly, they will begin to die.  Before going into a cure I will  endeavour to point out some  forms of poisoning. These can  come from copper pipes feeding  water into your home. This will  happen when water has been left  in the pipes for a day or more.  Another cause is insecticides  and herbicides sprayed in the  home, garden or near your local  water supply. This must be  watched because if introduced  into your aquarium it could prove  100% fatal to fish or plants. A  friend of mine told me of another  form which was put into his aquarium one evening while his son  was having a party. A well-  meaning young man decided the  fish needed some refreshment so  he added a little beer to the  water, needless to say every fish  in his tank was dead the following  morning. He never knew what  caused the death until a year later  when this person came forward  and admitted his guilt.  Another problem is in the form  of ornaments, never put in a store  bought ornament unless it is for  an aquarium. Sterilize all bits  of wood and rock. Be careful  of the types of rock also, do not  use limerock or marble as these  will cause the water to go hard by  raising the pH.  The only cure I know of for  poisoning is a quick exchange of  water for the aquarium. Another  thing that has bothered some  people is chlorinated water. So  far Gibsons and surrounding  areas have no problems with  this as the water supply is only  chlorinated occasionally and by  the time it reaches your home  it would have been given off as  gas.

Wilson  For most people speech and  communication are readily accepted things. Devices used so often  are to be taken for granted. But  there are people whose physical  handicaps make speech uncomfortable and the written word'  impossible to execute. Ask  Gordon Rouse.  While most of us were writing  love poems and scribbling our  names on bathroom walls Gordon  sat hour upon hour day after  endless day trying to print, to  form the most simple characters.  Hopeless. He was given a typewriter to use but no matter how  much he tried the keys became  stuck when he'd hit two at once,  which was often enough. Frustrating. Next he tried to master  an old-fashioned typewriter with  over-sized keys but his hands at  time would become' hopelessly  enmeshed in the mechanical  apparatus of the machine. The  situation is a stalemate; Gordon  not admitting defeat, the typewriter not about to . concede.  Until this week.  On Thursday your reporter  arrived at the Sunshine School  to find Gordon seated in front of  what must be the world's largest  typewriter keyboard. The^-board  which through :;���; a- converter?  operates the keys of a standard���-  typewriter was developed in  Britian   especially    for    people  with handicapped co-ordination.  It has a smooth face and push  buttons which operate on a time  delay system to enable the user  to run his fingers liberally over  its surface in search of the right  letter.  This system is the second of  its kind in British Columbia and  was presented to Gordon on a  permanent loan basis by the  Kinsmen Rehabilitation Foundation of B. C. Mr. Stephen Eger-  ton, Technical Aids Program  Supervisor with the foundation  who was on hand to demonstrate  the system, pointed out that programs such as his are only possible through community participation and co-operation. "This,"  he said, "is where the Mothers'  March dimes go I"  Gordon, whose 18th birthday  is June 1st, was too busy typing  a message to his best friend and  taxi driver Dick to offer any  comment on this 'present',  I however can.  Ask yourself what you would  like for your 18th birthday...  a party?...a new car?...the ability  to communicate with your fellow  man? It's a little like finding  God, isn't it?  To you Kinsmen and Mothers,  keep   marching!      And  to  you  .Gordon,-- -Happy----Birthday-'and--  keep typing,  we're  all  looking '  forward -=to your first letter to  the editor.
