Gibsons to get Regional water?  A decision may be reached this week as to whether Gibsons  ���will join in with the regional board water system.  Representa-   _pv.i -w_ ��� 1    1_ ���  fives of the Gibsons Village Council will meet with the Public   LftllCr   JtiCglOIlBl   OUS1HCSS  Utilities Commission of the regional board in the regional  board offices on Wednesday, June 22nd, for final discussions  on the projected link-up.  The meeting of the Public Utilities Commission held on  June 2nd discussed the proposal of the consulting firm of  ;Dayton and Knight that a joint system of water supply was  7ihost advisable to avoid costly duplication of service.   At that  meeting Chairman Harry Almond commented that he was prepared to accept the Works Superintendent Gordon Dixon's  report that the joint system would seem to be the only feasible  /way to achieve a balanced water system for the region generally  and for the North Road area of Gibsons in particular.  t   "Our aim is to achieve a uniform water supply for every  president of the region as well as a uniform water rate," said  ||Almond. "We feel we have the staff and the brains to accomplish this goal."  The recent meeting of the Kinsmen's Club of  Gibsons saw the installation ofthe new executives  for both the Kinsmen and the Kinettes. New  executive members are pictured above and include for the Kinettes Past President Nancy  Carby; President Trish Bitting; Vice-President  Maureen Maxwell; Secretary Pam Gregorchuk;  Treasurer Laurel Peterson; Registrar Lori Sou-  mang; and DirectorDonna Forsyth. For the Kinsmen the executives are.

Almond on BC Hydro spraying  By Harry Almond  Sometime last year B.C. Hydro  applied for and received a permit  to spray from the ground a section of the powerline right-of-way  between Langdale and Port  Mellon. This section is mostly  along a steep side-hill over rough  terrain and not easily accessible  from the highway. A contract was  given to a private company - to  spray the tree growth with herbicide or defoliant (or poison) to  kill the trees.  For some reason the contractor  did not complete the job whereupon B.C. Hydro applied to the  Department of Environment for  another permit. I was invited to  accompany a representative of  the Pesticide Control Branch,  together with a B.C. Hydro vege  tation management supervisor, to  look over what had been done and  what was proposed.  We walked along the powerline  at two different locations for half  a mile or so.    The spraying'.L  thought was patchily done.J.-The  trees were standing dead, mostly .  alders  four or five  years  old.'  Grass, salal and brambles were  growing well amongst the dead  trees.    Thick patches of salmon  berry which inhibit tree growth,  were  mostly  untouched  though  some  had   been   killed  by  the  spray.  Where larger creeks crossed  the powerline a strip of trees 30  to 40 feet wide on each bank had  been   left   untouched.      These,  mostly alders again, were twice  as high as the dead ones and in  some higher spots were within  20 feet or so of the power wires.  However, some of the smaller  creeks which crossed had been  completely sprayed over, and the  trees wereT'SSii^.:}::T^p'::Y^ji&xi'"  official tried to assure me that  these smaller creeks were dry  when the spraying took place,  and would be dry again in a week  or two. Perhaps they will.  I asked the Environment officer what happened to the residue  of poison. Did it lie on the  ground to be washed down to  the natural watercourses or what?  He was of the opinion that it  would not remain suspended in  water for long. I asked if private  domestic water sources had been  checked for traces of the poison.  He replied no, but thought it  would be a good idea. '-  In further conversation I for-  ������ Almond pointed out that he  had attended a meeting of the  fire chiefs recently and at that  time the Gibsons Fire Chief had  complained about the lack of  water pressure in hydrants in  Upper Gibsons, a condition which  had been a factor in the burning  of the original Elphinstone Secondary School four years ago. The  Public Utilities Commisssion  voted that Works Superintendent  Dixon's report be accepted and  that negotiations with the Village  of Gibsons be based on that report. Chairman Almond expressed himself as hopeful that it  would prove possible to work out  agreement with the Gibsons Village Council at the meeting to be  held June 22nd.  The commission also heard  Public Utilities Chairman Almond  read a letter from Granthams  Landing Improvement District  advising that the membership  has accepted the Sunshine Coast  Regional District's proposal that  the water system for Granthams  be under the operation and juris-  District be informed that the  regional district will arrange a  meeting with them after the  meeting with the Gibsons Council  scheduled for June 22nd.

It was recommended that the  Granthams Landing Improvement  In other Public Utilities Com-  sion business it was learned that  word had been recieved from the  Department of Housing that  there would be provincial government funding available for the  installation of a Land Servicing  Program to service the Field  Road subdivision of Cameo  Lands. The regional board intends to install a fourteen-inch  pipe, gravity fed, to supply this  subdivision with water with the  thought that such a water supply  direct from the intake would be  of immediate benefit to Davis Bay  and would eventually also provide  water service to the western end  of Roberts Creek. It was felt that  the approval of the Department  of Housing would remove any  obstacle ..to, Cameo Lands 7 Presi-.  dent Henry- Hall's request that  the lot sizes on his subdivision  adjacent to the Field Road industrial park be reduced to a  half-acre size.  Regional Board Planning  The regional board held their  regular board meeting after the  planning committee meeting on  June 16th, and appropriately  the first item on the agenda  was the now defunct Peninsula  Recycling.  Gibsons representative Jim  Metzler had canvassed the other  directors privately and was under  the impression that the result  would be the same if another  vote was taken. "I felt," he said,  "that since the taxpayers had  been put to the expense of the  questionnaire, and then had it  not listened to, the directors  should cover the cost, but that  it would make me very unpopular."  Sechelt council representative  Thompson objected to this, his  feelings being that 600 was not  a fair cross section of the population.  A motion was put to the floor  by Director Paterson recommending that the board consider  any recommendations in the future made by a more 'wholesome'  organization. The motion was  carried with one abstaining vote.  Planner  resigns  The regional planner Paul  Mortiz was present when a letter  from him to the board was read,  recommending that Miss Harrison be appointed planner in his  stead. The letter explained that  because of back injuries from  which he was not making a complete recovery,., he felt that, he  "should step down to a secondary  'position. He had been working  with Miss Harrison and knew  her to be capable of the position.  The board accepted his recommendation and thanked him for  his past services.  A letter was received from  Sue Ritterspack requesting that  the board finance the balance  of the costs needed to complete  Hiking Trails Handbook. This  was an L.I.P. project. The  $1,500.00 financing was agreed  to. It is expected that the money  will be recovered from the sale  of the book.  A copy of a letter from Mr.  Stuart Lefeaux to the District  Highways Manager was received,  advising that Jim Cooper of Redrooffs Road had placed logs  across an access to the beach  on what he considered his property.  Director Hoemberg told the  meeting that he had been in  close contact with the situation  for some time and the reason  Mr. Cooper finally put the logs  down was to protect himself  from people trespassing on his  land with boat trailers and recreational vehicles. It was passed  by the committee that Director  Hoemberg go over the survey  stakes with the owner and if the  cost was not prohibitive, complete  a survey. Use could also be  made of the summer student  work program to clear an access  on the right-of-way.  Legality  questioned  The  legality  of the   $25,00fj.  contribution    by    the    regional  board to the Village of Gibsons  for the new swimming pool was  questioned on the grounds that  the municipality was not. in the  district     recreational     function.  This  was  a  situation  that  was  not looked into fully at the time.  The board is awaiting word from  their lawyers before proceeding  further.  Hoemberg to meet Bennett  Regional Board Director for  Area *B', Peter Hoemberg, will  be the spokesman for a group of  seven regional districts whose  representatives journey to Victoria for a meeting with Premier  Bill Bennett concerning the proposed amendments to the Island  Trust Act.  The proposed amendments  would remove administration of  the islands from the regional  boards and turn them over to the  Island Trust.  Noting that on the  Island Trust board in most cases  only two members for each island  are elected with three appointed  by Victoria and that in some  cases, for example Thormanby  Island, no elected representatives  are available, Director Hoemberg  said, "It is obvious that the  amendments will not further  local group interest. The amendments will place power in the  hands of Victoria appointees  which is not in the best democratic interests ofthe islands."  Hoemberg said that while the  seven regional districts were  going to Victoria united in the  view that- administration of the  islands should remain with the  elected representatives on regional boards they were not too  hopeful of a positive audience.  He pointed out that Bennett  had already brought in the Island  Trust Amendment Act for third  and final reading and had only  withdrawn it when it was protested on the grounds that he had  promised the regional districts  a hearing.  The difficult quality of this long distance picture cannot conceal the incredible subject  matter. A stoic and lordly bald eagle seems to ignore the assault of this particularly aggressive crow. The crow finally flew away with a feather from the eagle's head - presumably to show the missus.  I questioned the B.C. Hydro  official regarding costs.  The cost  of spraying poison is about $100.  per acre.   This is spraying from  the  ground.     It  lasts  for  five  years which gives a cost of $20.  per acre per year. A considerable  acreage is involved.    In places  where it is possible, a farming  type of tree control is practised.  Between   Gibsons   and   Sechelt  many areas of the powerline are  cleared   and   used   for   grazing  animals. In one area a Christmas  tree farm is thriving.   In regard  to   hand   clearing,   the   Hydro  people feel the cost would be high  and   the   work   dangerous   and  inefficient.   Also if cut by hand,  the deciduous tree stumps would  have to be treated with  some  poison or they would grow again  very   quickly.       However,   the  period between cutting could be  longer than 5 years, possibly 7  years, which gives a more favourable comparison with the $20 per  acre per year for spraying.     I  was told quite plainly the decision  to go to hand cutting would have  to be from the provincial cabinet.  Conclusions:   Since the problem  of keeping the powerline clear of  trees is an on-going one which  will  last through  our  lifetime,  the   continued   use   of   poison  spraying even at 5 year intervals  could have a cumulative effect.  The      Provincial      government  should therefore use all available  sources of science and technology  to find a safe low-cost method  of controlling tree growth.     In  the meantime all powerline tree  cutting should be done by hand  or machine cutting, where possible, and the extra cost considered as a means of giving employment, especially in a high  unemployment area such as this.  An active program of control by  the "farming" method should be  pursued, and if any spraying is  done any nearby streams  and  domestic water sources should be  tested  at regular  intervals for  contaminants.  Members expressed concern  at the Regional Board Planning  Committee meeting held in Sechelt on June 16th about their  jurisdiction over building inspections on the islands.  James M. Poyner, a resident  of Vaucroft Beach on Thormanby  Island, constructed a building  without regional planning approval. He was taken to. court and  won the case on the grounds that  his property came under the  Islands Trust and not the regional  board. Committee member Peter  Hoemberg felt that if this decision  was not appealed, the regional  planning committee might as  well forget all building inspection  on the islands.  It was decided that the board  would appeal the ruling and send  a letter to the Minister of Municipal Affiars outlining their  grievance. Mr. Hoemberg will  also take a letter on the subject  to his meeting with Premier  Bennett this week.  Peninsula Taxi came under  fire from Sechelt residents with  two letters, one from neighbours  complaining about the nuisance  factor of having a business  operating within a residential  subdivision,   the  other  from   a  prospective buyer, stating that  he was not taking a second look  at buying property there.  There is a restrictive covenant  in the developer's contract,  stating that a homecraft is allowable if carried . on inside the  building only.  The planning committee felt  that the developer, or the residents could enforce this restriction and will write letters to the  parties concerned, outlining their  situations.  A review on rural density was  undertaken by the planner and  from his findings he felt that  there were an insufficient amount  of lots between 8 and 9.882 acres  to warrant changing the by-laws,  and that properties, e.g. the  Skytte property on North Road  should be looked into on an individual basis on the possibility  of rezoning.  Henry Hall applied for a subdivision rezoning on D.L. 1603  for half of the north east corner  of the property. Peter Hoemberg removed himself from the  discussion on the grounds that  his company was at present in  negotiations with Mr. Hall and  he returned after the rezoning  was granted.  Care of Gilker Park  Miss Harrison has been appointed Regional  Board Planner in place of Paul Moritz, stepping  down because of ill health.  The West Gibsons Heights  Ratepayers' Association, expressed in a letter grave concern  over the damage incurred recently in the Cliff Gilker Park. Director Johnstone had recently attended a recreational meeting  where this subject had been  brought up. The feeling of the  recreational committee was  that either a warden could be  deputised by the R.C.M.P. to  make his reports of any park  regulation violations legal, or  someone could be given a rent  and utility free trailer in the park  along the same lines as was  found to be successful in curbing  vandalism by the golf club.   At  the present time a warden is  being paid $25.00 a month to  police the area, and for this  amount the board felt that they  could not expect too much from  him.  One of- the main problems  arises from horses breaking down  the sides of the footpaths and  damaging the bridges. Representative Thompson suggested that  a letter to "the riding clubs in  the area explaining to them the  situation, and asking that their  members be informed about the  damage would be more effective  than taking a hard line attitude  on the subject.  Oops! Oops!  There has been some misunderstanding In last week's  coverage of the Gibsons Council  meeting as It pertained to the  application of Mari. Ranniger for  ��� boat repair shop In the old  Pazco fibreglass shop above  Seaview Road. Though Initially  at the regular meeting the application was turned down as reported In this paper, the village  council reversed Itself the following day and approved the  application.  You may remember the fetching picture of the little girl  through the log which appeared  In last week's paper. The picture  was taken at the Adventure  Playground In the Cliff Gilker  Memorial Park, not as stated  behind Roberts Creek School.  Finally, we had a picture of the  Gibsons Girts' Volleyball Team in  action in Kamloops and neglected  to credit the picture to the Kamloops Daily Sentinel newspaper.  It was a Ron Crulce photograph.  [Delivered to EVERY address on the Sunshine Coast every Tuesday! 2.  Coast News, June 21,1977.  A CO-OPERATIVELY AND LOCALLY OWNED NEWSPAPER  Published at Gibsons, B.

Centralization  It is no secret to readers of the local  newspapers that the regional board has  been the subject of intense criticism both  locally and as an institution throughout  the province in the last few months.  It would appear to be true to say that the  concept of Regional District has fallen  into disfavour with the provincial government whose party originally gave it birth.  The government's attitude is perhaps  quite clearly exemplified by the action of  the Premier in initially allowing the Island Trust Amendment Act to come forward for third reading despite the fact  that he had promised to meet with representatives of concerned regional boards  before the final reading of an act of the  legislature which would remove control  ofthe islands from them. It would appear  from this that the meeting set up this  week is no more than another of these  sham consultations of which we had a  plethora lately. The essential decisions  have been made before the consultations  take place.  The placing of the islands in the control of Island Trustees, three of which  are government appointees and two  elected, is another movement in the  direction of a more centralized government and away from the control of local  affairs by local people. This paper has  gone on record before as being in favour  of as much local control as it is possible  to obtain and retain. It is not that we  think that the regional boards, or any  other local government for that matter,  is without its imperfections or that  bureaucrats in the service of regional  boards are any less likely to be officious  and difficult than bureaucrats anywhere.  Indeed recent local experience would  indicate that the bureaucrats who serve  the elected representatives of municipal  governments and regional boards are just  as likely to take themselves too seriously  and to perform their duties with a self-  seeking or insensitive pomposity as  appointed office holders at any level of  government.  We have no false illusions about this.  We reiterate, however, the conviction  that if the bureaucrats are locally based  and readily accessible it is possible for  the people who must deal with them to  avoid the excesses of impersonal arrogance which seems to be the natural  birthright of all appointed to government  service. With this in mind we will continue to decry the tendency of the present  government towards centralizing more  and more of the administrative power  over the people of this province in the  hands of the distant bureaucrats in the  provincial cabinet. In the long run such  centralization cannot serve the best interests either of democracy or the people  of B.C.  Regional water  Let us hope that the Village of Gibsons  this week will see the wisdom of joining  the regional water system. The village  council of Gibsons would seem to be the  last bastion of intense parochialism on  the entire Sunshine Coast. While this  paper favours decentralization of central  powers it would maintain that the units  to which the power would be decentralized must retain a size sufficient to  lend them economic viability. It is the  contention here that the Sunshine Coast  is a natural geographic entity of considerable size and with a relatively small  population. Only through co-operation,  constant and close, between the village  councils and the regional board can costly  duplication of effort be achieved and high  cost loans, caused by too small an economic base, be avoided. If the Village of  Gibsons agrees to join the regional water  system it will in the long run save the  Gibsons tax-payer some money and  evince a recognition of the need for  co-operation on the part of the village  council which has not been apparent in  the past.  from the files of Coast News  5 YEARS AGO  The Driftwood Players present The  Red Shoes to the delight of their audience.

Members  from various parts of the area stated  that celebrants took to the water in outboard-powered boats and toured the  entire length of the harbour yelling and  cursing at the top of their voices while  at the same time indulging in dangerous  twisting and turning of the small craft  at high speeds.  25 YEARS AGO  Pessimism permeates the peninsula  business circles as the logger's strike  continues to punch hard below the belt  at retail business, especially in the  Sechelt area.  30 YEARS AGO  One of the earlier publications which  sprouted gleefully in the peninsula for  a time then died away has been unearthed; Called "The Eagle", it was  born about 1931 says its owner, Mrs.  Fred McNutt of Egmont. She generously  loaned her "pioneer issue" to the Coast  News as an object of interest to oldtimers  around the peninsula who may remember  when the newsy little sheet came out.

L.R.Peterson  Musings  John Burnside  Slings & Arrows  George Matthews  Games that while away the  hours serving as social lubrication  in a room full of strangers, or  perhaps a room full of people who  know each other all too well;  games that serve as a not inconsiderable portion of that tiny  arsenal of behavioural ammunition with which we endeavour to  keep the ravenous beasts of  barbarism within us all, at bay.  This, dear reader, is by way of  being a tribute to the games  people play.  Not, needless to say, that it  will be by any means an exhaustive study. If anyone out there  would look in this space for  psychological matter, be that anyone advised that the appearance  of the word behavioural in the  foregoing paragraph is absolutely  as far as I'm going in that direction. For one reason I get the  feeling that most of us are quite  oblivious of the truly interesting  psychological games that go on,  those that find root in the subconscious and only surface carefully camouflaged by rationalizations.  No, the games I have in mind  are games that are never played  unless all involved know the  rules. And doesn't that clearly  place some considerable limitation on the scope of this essay?  Games that people play solitary  do not interest me. Part of the  fascination of game-playing for  me is the glimpses of other  minds at work that can be obtained when the imposed and self-  imposed masks of personality  and identity are for the moment  laid aside. Solitary games for  the most part only allow one to  play with one's own mind. It's  not enough. It should be borne  in mind, too, less the lovers of  crossword puzzles, solitaire, jigsaw puzzles, or whatever feel  that I'm displaying an insensitive  arrogance towards their particular enthusiasm, that I was a particularly sickly child and spent  much ofthe formative years alone  with all of the above and books,  books, books and I think I've had  enough of solitary games.  The first social game, with  rules, that we played at home was  the simple board game Ludo.  The rattle of the dice in the bone  cup is amongst my earliest memories. The game has never really  felt the same with a glass or metal  cup. It's a simple game of pursuit and chance but we played it  in my family with an intensity,  a hostility, and a rapidity that  made it magic. The earliest  card games were Whist and a  game called Cab, or Stop-the-  Bus, sometimes in North America  called Thirty-one, I think. Mine  was and is a family of strongly-  etched personalities and sometimes I think we were never  happier than when some of the  intense nervous energies were  funnelled or channelled through  some mutually understood and  agreed upon competitive frame.  Let. me pause, if I may, in the  onrush of this dissertation, to  observe that it seems to me that  herein lies much of the value of  games. Granted that man is not  only a social animal but a compe-  titve one too, and sometimes  the competitive thrust seems  about to rend the social fabric  entirely asunder. It would seem  to me that some of the big life  and death issues, the bread and  !butter of survival itself,' as it  ^Were, would be better served on  the humble platter of selfless cooperation whilst we could take the  I'm-as-good-as-any-man, or  High  Noon theory of existence  and go and play cards with it.  I did for a brief space play  checkers in my youth though the  game never did take hold of me.  It would seem to have the slowness of chess, virtually, without  its compensating complexity.  Chess was taught me by my  ex-wife.   She won the first fifty  games we played with great high  glee.    I was obsessed with my  queen.   "What!   You mean she.  can move any number of squares  in a straight line in any direction  and is stronger than any other  piece  on  the  board?      Wow!"  So I'd  move  her  out  and  into  action   early   confident   in   her  power and   mobility  and  she'd  always get picked off by some  lesser but supported pipsqueak.  In   anj-  case   chess,   which   I  came to in my twenties, has remained  an   enthusiasm   to   the  present time though it is one that  rarely gets  indulged.     Charlie,  my exterminator friend, recently  taught me the Japanese  game  Go, and I found that it had a  refined subtlety about it which  caught my fancy.  It may become  a favourite.  King of the card games is, of  course, Bridge. I came at it  originally with skepticism and  distrust. I met it in Teachers'  College in Ste. Anne de Bellevue,  P.Q. I couldn't imagine why  all those would-be teachers spent  every available hour in the cafeteria playing a card game.- I  took my customary swimming  upstream position about it as a  faddish and a foolish thing and  noted severely that many of them  were having trouble with their  work because of their obsession.  I think I may have learnt the  rules at that time but basically  I left it alone. There was another  false start in the Yukon where I  briefly tried it again on those  long, long winter nights. There  my impression of the game was  somewhat marred by an unmarried reverend gentleman who  would occasionally rub my knee  hopefully under the table and  the dreadful bickering that husbands and wives sometimes got  into during the dreaded and  dreadful post mortems. You  know. "Well, Dear, if you'd  only lead your x when I hinted  with my y..." etc., etc.  Well, I still don't like too much  in the way of post mortems, and  it makes me uncomfortable when  I see someone projecting hostility  at a partner which belongs elsewhere, or at least the handling  of it does, but nonetheless the  game has engaged me and I find  that there are few social pleasures  more subtle than a well-played  rubber of Bridge.  These, then, are the social  games with rules to which I  would pay tribute. To those  who feel that theirs is a mind  too lofty for games such as these,  what is there to say except "We  all have our illusions, dearie".  To engage in games of chance or  skill with cards or dice in competitive endeavour is civilized.  The competitive urges that it  channels are not necessarily so.  Now, if there was only more  time to play them...  / have walked out in rain - and back in rain.  I have outwalked the furthest city light.  I have looked down the saddest city lane.  I have passed by the watchman on his beat  And dropped my eyes, unwilling to explain.  I have stood still and stopped the sound of feet  When far away an interrupted cry  I noticed in my copy of last  Thursday's Vancouver Sun (Why  not nothing but private schools?  Page 5), that our very own Adrian  Stott has been proving once again  that a little knowledge is a  dangerous thing. According to  Mr. Stott the private school is  superior because it is run on a  free enterprise basis. As he  suggests, "If they (private  schools) don't deliver superior,  results, few students will pay to  attend."  1 don't think its necessary to  point out to Adrian that students  don't "pay to attend" but rather  their socially insecure or patently  bourgeois, parents foot the bill  in j order to, either get the kids  out of the house, make sure they  meet the "right kind of children"  or to satisfy some misguided  elitist view of society. What is  necessary however is to challenge  the myth of the private school in  order to protect the confidence  of the people in their own education system.  Don't get the idea that I think  that the public school system is  perfect. The public school system is as imperfect an institution  as you will find in an imperfect  world. It does an adequate job  with the average child. It attempts to offer some opportunities  to the exceptional child, sometimes it fails utterly, often it  gets off the track, but on the  whole it does a hell of a lot better  job than those nineteenth century  mischief makers who call themselves "private schools".  Private schools epitomize  elitism and the belief in a rigid  class system. They are antidemocratic and totally opposed to  the fundamental principles upon  which our Canadian society is  founded. One of those principles  is freedom of choice and I suppose in support of that ideal,  private schools must be tolerated.  But what should not be tolerated  is the persistent myth, born of  romantic images of the British  aristocracy and hackkneed novels  and T.V. scripts about the elegant  rich written by the envious poor  that persist in supporting the  private school.  What the private school is is  the Head Master, the head boy,  the prefect, the old school tie,  the good old rugby master, the  crest, the little cap, short grey  trousers, "jolly hockey stick"  and "whacko chaps isn't it good  fun to swim nude in the school  pool with the other lads". It's  also the place where the young  lads can get on without the  "unnatural" interference, of girls  or the little girls can do likewise,  where children can learn to survive on too many scoops of  mashed potatoes and gravy;  where the rich kids can spend  their time without having to  mingle with the poor or where  the semi-poor can send their  kids with the naive belief that  they can rub shoulders with the  rich.  What the private school is not  is a viable alternative to public  education system in a democratic  society. It fosters feelings of  superiority, elitist alliances and  a belief in a stratified class structure that should not be encouraged by a people dedicated to  the cause of democracy.  In his article, Mr. Stott suggests that in private schools  "Good teachers are sought after  and rewarded for their skills".  Nonsense. Any tin pot martinet  with a bad C from a third rate  British school who can stuff  ' enough marbles into his mouth  and make a presentable knot in  the old school tie is eagerly snapped up by these class conscious  pretend Etons. Read a couple of  chapters of Tom Brown's School  Days, slip on a thread bare blazer  and stick a cricket bat under  , your arm and the poor suckers  won't even ask for your credentials. Private school "masters"  are badly paid and many of them  would be teaching in the public  school system right now if they  had the qualifications.  It really burns me up that in  this day and age it can be even  hinted at that private enterprise is some kind of guarantee  of quality. Does that mean that  private television is superior to  public television or that the same  people who brought you the Cor-  vair and napalm are somehow  better judges of what is good for  the people? Private enterprise  is good for making a buck and as  any experienced consumer can  tell you making a buck is not  necessarily the same as offering  quality.  Adrian also goes on to criticize  the "laymen" on school boards  for their uninformed monkeying  with the school system. (It was  about this point in his article  that I began to suspect that he  was just pulling the reader's  legs to make them stand up and  speak out for what most of us  really believe in.) School boards  do make a lot of dumb decisions  but I'd.sure rather put my faith  in the representatives of the  people than in some pedantic  twit in a private school.  Mr. Stott further reckons that  private schools could do the job  of educating our children for less  cost. The fact is that it would.  cost a lot more. The one advantage that the private school does  have over its public competitor  is that the private school, on the  average, has one "teacher" for  'ivery ten or twelve students  whereas the public school has  one teacher for every nineteen  or twenty students. Since teachers' salaries are the major  component of any school system,  in order to offer the same teacher/pupil ratio as now obtained  in the private school, the cost of -  the entire system - would soar  out of sight.  The "people's" government in  Victoria seems set on giving  away our tax dollars to support  the perpetuation of the private  school myth. If the people wake -���  up in time we might be able,  through the good offices of our  M.L.A., to discourage the trend.  If however we take such malicious  nonsense as Mr. Stott is peddling  seriously we will be making a  terrible and probably irreversible  mistake.  u LETTERS to the EDITOR  Objection        Petition Warning Thank you  Coast News, June 21,1977.  Editor:  Until recently I have thought  that you were a reasonably intelligent and capable human  being, as well as being rather  witty at times. However, you  have come down at least one  notch in my books regarding your  remark in last week's paper  about the inanity of the Yorkshire  Terrier. I have had three of your  so called inanities, as well as a  Cocker Spaniel. These Yorkies  have been very loyal, inexpensive  to feed, never yap, and extremely  easy to travel with as they are so  small. On the other hand the  Spaniel was of limited intelligence and not of a pleasant  disposition. I know that you have  also owned a black Spaniel,  although you claim that you  prefer mongrels. Your Spaniel  was very precious to you I believe. It wasn't at all like the one I  used to own. So how can you say  that all Yorkshire Terriers are  inanities? As you can tell, you've  cut me to the quick, and whatever  you write in your paper, give me  a Yorkie any day.  May Scotland forgive you.  Julie McNicoll  Editor's Note: My black 'Spaniel'  was a mongrel.  Gratitude  Editor:  Since the first of the year,  the students of my Social Studies  9310 class have been involved in  gathering and compiling information about the Sunshine Coast.  Mr. John Denley, Superintendent of School District #46,  has encouraged teachers at all  levels to develop course materials  that are relevant to the needs of  the students. A study of one's  own environment promotes pride  in one's heritage, a better appreciation of one's surroundings, and  is the first step toward an understanding of the rest of the world.  This year's exercise in local  studies has been a successful  beginning and the students would  like to take this opportunity to  publicly thank the following  people for their time and their  contributions:  Clarence Joe, Sechelt Indian  Band Manager, Don Lockstead,  M.L.A. for Mackenzie, Clay  Carby and the Sunshine Coast  Regional District staff, The Gibson's Municipal Council, the Gibsons Municipal Planner, Ted  Hume, Gibsons Alderman, Constable Bill Turlock, Gibsons  R.C.M.P., Pat Mulligan, Conservation Officer, B.C.-Fish and  Wildlife Department, Bill Tym-  chuck, B.C. Forest Service, Joan  Haggerty, local author, Larry  Wasik and Glen Williams,  Canadian Forest Products, Port  Mellon, Dave Helem and Regau  Brown, School District Resource  Centre.  We would also like to thank  the staff at Elphie for their  assistance and all of the parents  for their patience.  Any member of the community  interested in observing the materials gathered, may come by the  high school, Room 111 on Thursday, June 30th between 9:00  a.m. and 5:00 p.m.  Marta K. MacKown  Mr. Bennett, Premier  Victoria, B. C.  Dear Sir;  Enclosed is a petition (661  names) from the people of the  Sunshine Coast. The names represent the population from Port  Mellon to Pender Harbour and  the feeling is very strong over  here about the use of herbicides.  The Regional Board passed a  resolution which condemned  the use of these chemicals. As  the Hydro right-of-way runs right  up the coast above the populated  area, all the water used has to  cross the right-of-way and it is  felt that not enough information  is known about these herbicides  to enable them to be used safely  in an area like this.  Even B.C. Hydro admits that  if the spraying or for that matter  distribution of pellets, is not done  properly under very controlled  conditions there could be problems. Surely in a situation like  this it is better not to use the  stuff at all rather than to take  any chances with the people's  health.  I am sure I am speaking for  all the people who signed our  petition when I ask you to reconsider the decision to spray the  right-of-way and reinstitute the  programme carred out some  years ago when large areas of the  right-of-way were cleared and  seeded. This was very successful  and provided some work for the  unemployed as well as feeding  grounds for horses, deer and  bear. We fully realize that this  is not possible in the more rugged  terrain but if necessary this could  be done by the unemployed too.  Thank you for your time and it  is our hope that the petition and  letters will convey to you the  feeling of the people and help  you to reconsider the spraying  programme.  John Hind Smith  Gibsons Wildlife Club  Endorse  Editor:  I wish to endorse and support  in" every possible way'the Attorney General's present campaign  against those thoughtless perpetrators of so much human suffering and misery, the drinking  drivers. Nothing other than the  fear of being caught is so likely  to restrain a motorist from excessive drinking right from the  outset of an evening or to encourage him to go home by taxi  if he has taken rather too much  liquor.  As for the completely heedless, the police must simply be on  hand in sufficient numbers. in  sufficient places sufficiently  often to catch them and to rule  them off the road.  The availability of alcohol on  every hand and at practially  every social occasion these days  imposes a special duty on all of  us who use it to drink moderately  and not to drink if we intend to  take control of a motor vehicle,  which has been likened by the  courts to a lethal weapon.

Ontario.  Public response was immediate  and sympathetic.   Then on May  13, on an open-line radio program  from Niagara Falls,   Ontario,  I  was advised by the head of the  French-Speaking        Association  of Ontario that every effort was  going to be  made to suppress*  it across Canada.   In an unguarded   moment   this   same   man  admitted that his association is  funded by the Canadian Federal  Government to the tune of three  hundred thousand dollars a year.  In   other   words,   the   French-  Speaking Association of Ontario,  which  has  its   counterparts   in  each of our nine English-speaking  provinces, is virtually an extension of the Federal Government,  working steadily and purposefully  toward Mr. Trudeau's now obvious goal of a French-dominated,  and eventually a French-speaking  Canada.    As the result of that  conversation there is no doubt  in my mind that every imaginable  form of pressure will be brought  to   bear   on   store-owners   and  managers across Canada to prevent   my   book   getting   to   the  Canadian public.  During my 28 years in Canada's Armed Forces, I firmly believe that Canada stood for free- ���  dom of speech, including the  right to dissent. Under Mr.  Trudeau, I am no longer sure.  In view of the threat of suppression made against my book, I  would appreciate an opportunity  to ask those Canadians who still  value their personal freedom to  drop into their local book stores  or book counters to determine  for themselves whether this suppression has been put into effect.  If it has, I would ask that they  object strenuously, for their  freedom to dissent is as threatened as mine.  J. V. Andrew  Lieutenant Commander (Retired)  Gen. Del. Perth, Ont.  P.S.

SuperValu  SUNNYCREST CENTRE Cotneoninl Coast News, June 21,1977.  lice:  i CBC Radio  MEETING ALLEN GINSBERG  It's June 3, 1973 and we're  heading for the Big Smoke to see  Allen Ginsberg for the first time  and hopefully, exchange a few  words with the old Beat guru.  I'm by no means an inveterate fan  of Ginsberg's poetry. He publishes too frequently and seems to  commit a lot of things to print  that would be better left in his  notebooks. Still, he has done  some fine work. His best poems  such as Howl and Kaddish have  a wild Whitmanesque power. But  mainly the man's a living legend -  friend and confidante of those lost  heroes, sad Jack Kerouac and  frenetic Neal Cassady - the last  of the great Beat writers who  triggered the counterculture and  changed the way of things forever.  Our small entourage includes  my brother Martin who had  known Neal Cassady in California  in his days as Ken Kesey's bus-  driver and Howie White, Raincoast Chronicles editor. Another  of our writers, Scott Lawrance, is  responsible for bringing Ginsberg  to Vancouver to do a benefit  reading for The Tibetan Buddhist  Centre. He is staying at the home  of Warren Tallman, a long-time  friend, who was Howie White's  Creative Writing professor in his  U.B.C. days. Thus we are members of the inner-circle so-to-  speak, privy to a first audience  with the famous Mr. G.  We reach the house and enter  Tallman's living-room. Ginsberg  is sitting alone on a couch with  his harmonium on a coffee-table  in front of him. He looks much as  he does in his photographs -  balding, bespectacled, his great  Talmudic beard now more gray  than black. Bob Hunter, then  still writing for the Sun, is winding up an interview. Scott Lawrance, Bob's wife Zoe and several  other people sit on the floor  across from Ginsberg in a rough  Page s  fFdfti d kx�� 0 - ��pg  Peter Grower  semi-circle. At the near-end of  the room, a Buddhist monk,  saffron-robed, sits meditating on  an arm-chair in the lotus-position.  It is all quite impressive. Since  there seems nowhere else to sit,  we join the people on the floor.  Hunter has finished his interview.  Ginsberg's eyes begin to roam  the room, fixing on each new  arrival in turn; asking names and  other brief questions. They are  black piercing eyes that see and  have seen, much.  I remember Scott having said  that its Ginsberg's birthday.  When those perceptive eyes get  round to me, I hand him a copy  of my first (and at that time, only)  book of poems. It contains an  apacalyptic rant called A New  Anarchy which was almost directly inspired by Howl. I mention  this fact to him, feeling a bit  like a sycophant but its the truth  and he seems pleased. The mysterious and enigmatic monk now  snaps out of his reverie and begins talking very non-esoterically  about being hassled for suspicion  of drug-possession in San Francisco. Apparently, he's a renegade monk who's been ousted  from the order for drinking, going  with women and other misbehaviour but he continues to wear  the robes. He and Ginsberg met  in India ten years before.  A videotape-crew from CTV  now enters and the entire party  adjourns to the back-garden to  make a film. I linger to chat  briefly with Bob Hunter who's  leaving. "Wow, man," he says,  "Ginsberg's mind is incredible!  He was totally on top of everything I asked him!" Bob and his  wife leave.   I join the others in  the backyard and become selfconsciously caught-up in chanting  mantras for the television cameras. Finally the filming ends and  Ginsberg is spirited away for a  private audience with the head of  the Tibetan Buddhist Society.  The rest of us retire to Gastown  to kill time until the reading that  evening. We sit at the sidewalk-  table of an outdoor cafe, watching  two hippie girls dancing in the  streets to the music of a Sally-Ann  band.  The next time we see Ginsberg,  he's onstage at the Eric Hamber  Auditorium. Its almost 8:00 and  the reading is about to commence. (I have neglected to mention  that he is on crutches - the result  of a broken foot sustained in a  recent car-accident.) The audience is a remarkable cross-section  of new adherents and aging beatniks who haven't surfaced from  the underground for years. They  have packed the place as tightly  as fire-regulations will permit to  see this folk-hero who, while he  may not be the best contemporary  American poet, is certainly the  most famous. Allen Ginsberg  does not disappoint his fans. He  is a compelling reader with great  stage-presence who chants and  intones his latest work with gusto  to a hall-full of avid listeners.  Frequently, he accompanies himself on the harmonium. His  friend, the maverick monk, has  accompanied Ginsberg onstage  and turns the pages for him. At  last, the reading concludes to resounding applause. A country  band takes over. Ginsberg and  the monk come up the aisle and  stand directly opposite where we  are     sitting,     obviously     well-  ALSO GOOD SELECTION OF CEDAR LUMBER & HARDWOODS.

Then its later and we're back  at Warren Tallman's house. The  living-room seems to be jammed  full of Buddhists. The rest of us  who do not actively follow the  faith are in the kitchen, sleazily  drinking. Ginsberg stands at the  stove, cooking himself a humble  supper of scrambled eggs. In  all the excitement, no one has  thought to feed him and he hasn't  eaten all day. He finishes preparing his hasty meal and sits  noshing hungrily. Until the eggs  are gone and the platter wiped  clean, he is quite oblivious to our  presence. I wander out in the hall  to search for the bathroom. A  tiny, elfin girl sits on the staircase playing a wooden flute that  is almost as long as she is tall.  She rises and ascends the stairs,  still playing and glancing back at  me a couple of times. Maybe its  an invitation to follow her but  I'm not sure so I don't. I return  to the kitchen and manage to  grab a seat in the breakfast-nook  across from Ginsberg. The alc#):  hoi has loosened my inhibitions.  I ask him questions about Jack  Kerouac. He advises me to read  the posthumously-published  Visions of Cody, to which he has  written the introduction. A  couple of well-known local poets  stand on the outside looking in.  They are no fans of mine nor I  of them. I feel rather smug and  privileged. Finally, everyone has  gone except our immediate  group. Ginsberg announces that  he's bushed and we prepare to  take our leave also. He stands by  the front-door on his crutches and  bids us goodbye one by one.  "Don't drink too much," he  advises me, fixing me for the last  time with those omniscient eyes.  ^WIWWWWWWW  CLASSIFIED NOTE  Drop off your Coast News  Classifieds at Campbell's Family  Shoes & Leather Goods in downtown Sechelt.

They've discovered  that there's money in romance.  by Maryanne West  On June 1, 1889 the luxurious  sleeping cars of the Direct  Orient Express pulled out of the  Gare de Lyon, Paris, on the  train's first 1900 mile, three-day  journey to Constantinople, (once  Byzantium gateway to Asia, and  now Istanbul, Turkey) via Vienna,  Budapest, Belgrade, and Sofia.  When a rail tunnel between  Switzerland and Italy was finished in 1906, the Orient Express  was re-routed via Milan and  Venice reducing the travelling  time by 12 hours.  Last month. May 17th, the  Orient Express made it's last run  and on board were three Vancouver broadcasters, Jurgen  Hesse, Don Mo watt and Lars  Eastholm. They have tried to  capture for listeners the romance  and legend of this tram of kings  and king of trains as well as the  sounds of the cities it served and  the people who travel and who  work for the railway. You'll  hear from partisans who blew  up the tracks during the war,  eccentric passengers, the sounds  of Venice, the cacaphony of the  grand bazaar in Istanbul; and the  choir of Sofia's Alexander Nev-  sky's Cathedral.  - Special Occasion, Sunday at  5:05 p.m., presents the flavour  of the bygone era, not forgotten  by anyone who believes that one  of the most seductive sounds  in the world is a train whistle.

V-.il  Max Von Sydow is the humane, anti-Nazi ship's captain in "Voyage of  the Damned," the suspenscful true-life epic telling the dramatic stories  of 900 German refugees trapped on the high seas, unwanted by the world.  Faye Dunaway, (Jskar Werner. Malcolm McDowell, Orson Welles, James  Mason, Lee Grant, Katharine Ross and Ben Gazzara co-star in the Auco  Embassy release  Damned and Naughty  Both  films   upcoming  at   the  Twilight Theatre this week have  something of a historic flavour,  though the similarity stops right  there. The first is the suspenseful  true-life   epic   Voyage   of   the  Damned starring Faye Dunaway,  Max von  Sydow,  Malcolm  McDowell,   Orson   Welles,   James  Mason,   Lee   Grant,   Katharine  Ross, Jose Ferrer and Ben Gazzara.     Voyage  of the  Damned  brings to the screen the tragic  true story of 937 German Jewish  refugees who were permitted by  the Nazis to leave their native  land aboard the luxury liner S.S.  St. Louis in 1939.   Believing they  had bought asylum in Cuba from  the Nazi prosecutors, the  refugees gradually learned they were  the  victims  of a political   plot.  German    propaganda    minister,  Goebbels had prepared a campaign to prove to the world that  Germany was not  alone  in  rejecting the passengers of the St.  Louis.   As he planned, the refugees soon found themselves unwanted by the world.  Voyage  of the Damned   tells  the dramatic stories of the individual passengers who were trapped at sea as well as the sweeping  tale of high level intrigue. Also  starring in the international cast  are Luther Adler, Julie Harris.  Lynne Frederic, Paul Koslo,  Leonard Rossiter, Janet Suzman,  Wendy Hiller, Nehemia Persoff,  Maria Schell, Denholm Elliott,  Donald Houston and Sam Wana-  maker. It will play Wednesday  through Saturday, June 22 - 25.  The second feature is The  Naughty Victorians which is described as the first totally erotic  motion picture. It is a lavishly-  mounted tale of .a maiden's  revenge based upon the underground classic "A Man with a  Maid."  While the movie features the  music of Gilbert and Sullivan the  film is not recommended for  lovers of The Mikado or The  Pirates of Penzance. The movements, we are told, are somewhat  different. The film will play the  Twilight Theatre Sunday through  Wednesday, June 26 - 29, at the  regular time of 8:00 p.m.  Warning:  This did happen and it could  happen again.

These books have become very  popular, and one woman writer  in England, who writes this sort  of thing, has published more  books than any other writer in  the world.  The Slender Thread, the book  I've just finished, .is probably  representative of most of these  type of stories, and the cover  alone is enough to give you a good  idea of what the book is about.  In the foreground, a wistful-  faced, conventionally pretty  woman, her eyes discreetly  lowered, is twirling a wildflower  in her hand. Behind her, looking  cool, is a tall, dark, handsome  man. He's leaning casually  against a tree, but it's obvious  CLOSING  For renovations on Monday, June 27th.  We invite you to come in on Tuesday,  the 28th, to see our added attractions.

Off in the distance, a sleek red  sports car has been parked. A  moment to remember, no doubt.  These books are all quite  short, but in less than two hundred pages, one encounters a  great deal of action. We begin,  for example, with the beautiful  Catherine in her wheelchair.  But by page twenty-five she's  been operated on by the handsome neurosurgeon, and by page  thirty, she's walking again.  Herein hangs the tale, the fine  distinction between being in love,  and being grateful. "It was a  known fact that many women  thought themselves in love with  their doctors because they mistook gratitude for love. The slender thread between the two  emotions were almost indefinable, but it was there all the  same."  A hundred and fifty pages  later, there can be no doubt left  in anyone's mind. Consider  young Dr. Paul from these descriptions: "His light summer suit  was superbly cut," "His eyes  had been like two coals of fire,  scorching her as they searched  her very soul." He brushes  crumbs "from his immaculately  pressed grey trousers." He  drives, alternately, "a sleek  crimson sports car", or a "gleaming white Bentley" and he lives  in a palatial country house called  "Chateau of Happiness".  Consider, too, the devastating  effect he has on our heroine.  When he calls her on the phone,  her blood courses "...wildly  through her veins, leaving her  strangely numb." He calls her  "ma Cherie" and "adoree" and  his lean good looks brood menacingly as he mutters imprecations  like "nom de dieu". How can  she possibly escape this tender  trap of implacable passion? How  can she quiet the insistent voices  of her love?   How can she ever  TWILIGHT THEATRE  Gibsons  hope to consummate her yearning, but essentially virginal desires? She marries him.  And this, you would think,  would end the tale, happily, and  forever after.  But no.   Returning  to France, life is not all it would  seem to be. Within twenty pages  of their marriage, Paul is convinced that our heroine is having  an affair with Felix le Clerge,  the dashing Don Juan of the  medical technician set. This, of  course, isn't so. Felix is really  in love with Adele, Paul's younger sister. But Paul is blind. He  cannot see that Catherine is really  just covering up for Adele. He  accuses her of infidelity. He  rushes over to Felix's apartment,  and in a scene charged with  treacle-like violence he demands:  "Are you having an affair with  my wife?" When Felix says no,  Paul punches him. Meanwhile,  the distraught Catherine, so unjustly accused, has taken a plane  back to South Africa. There,  knowing that she  is  pregnant,  886-2827  she resolves to raise the child  by herself, spurning the man who  has abused her so badly. Paul,  realizing now how foolish he has  been, jumps on another plane,  and follows her. Will they ever  be reconciled? Can Paul hope to  win her back, or will Catherine  spurn him forever, preferring to  live her own life? Can Paul convince her, once more, of this undying passion?  There is such a wonderful  quality of total unreality in this  book. To begin with, everyone  is wealthy. And although most  of it is set in South Africa, you'd  never tumble to the fact that there  are racial troubles there. In fact,  the old black housekeeper is at  one point referred to as: "the  elderly coloured girl." Along  with this, the dialogue reads  like something from a cereal  box. "Do you really love me,  cherie?" "Yes. Her heart  leapt." "This is not just gratitude?" "No, no! A thousand  times, no!"  But really, despite the generally snide tone of this interview,  it should be pointed out that  these books do fulfill the one  general function of all art - they  entertain. If the setting is unreal, the characters totally  wooden, and the dialogue bland,  at least they provide a romantic  escape for their readers. After  a day of rinsing dirty diapers,  or scraping peanut butter off the  walls, or cleaning the oven, what  more could you ask for? So we  watch Paul and Catherine embrace. " 'Heaven is here, mon  coeur,' he replied, before claiming her lips, and Catherine knew  this to be the truth. Heaven was  indeed here in Paul's arms."  A trip to heaven for 75$. Not a  bad deal. Pender group hikes the Cape Scott Trail  By John Hind Smith  Why would anyone want to  spend days ploughing through  mud and water for the most part  over their ankles and sometimes  up to their knees just for the fun  of it, one would ask?  That's just what 17 teenagers,  two dogs and five, apparently  crazy adults did recently when  they took a trip to Cape Scott, at  the north end of Vancouver Island.  The Pender Harbour Secondary  School Outdoors Club has been  actively promoting trips like this  for the past two years, first to  the West Coast Trail, last year  to Wells Gray Park and Myrtle  Lake, and this time Cape Scott.  The idea is to give the young  people some insight into outdoor  wilderness experience and to try  and instil in them some sense of  getting along with their environment and with each other and the  gear was unloaded and we got  going about 1:15 carrying packs  weighing 50 pounds plus, and I'm  sure some of the older boys were  carrying quite a bit over. The  ages ranged from 14 to 17, boys  and girls, and to be practical,  I wouldn't think the trail was recommended for people under  about 12.  A sign which said "Slippery  when Wet" did not really tell us  what the. next six hours or so  was going to be like. There is  no mistaking where the trail goes  and one or two windfalls have  been cut through, but for i!n_-  most part it is a case of ploughing  your way through ankle to knee  high mud, ducking under fallen  trees, so low sometimes you have  to crawl in the mud to get the  packs underneath and, at the  beginning at least, trying to work  your way round instead of through the mud.  It didn't work how-  need to realize how each and  everyone of us is dependent on  the other guy. It also puts their  physical capabilities to a good  test.  Everyone met at Mark Myer's  place in Madeira Park at 6:30  a.m. on Saturday, May 28th and  no one was late. The first night  was spent at a camp site near  Port Hardy. The first night of  any camping trip is always chaotic  and this was no exception. It  rained and everything was haywire, so the less said about it,  the better. We tried to sort out  the grub we were going to take  along with us but it was all very  complicated and we finished up  taking quite a lot more than we  really needed. If we had known  what was ahead of us we may  have been a bit more careful.  Our congenial bus driver, Mark  Myers has more brains than any  of the rest of us. He stays at  hotels and motels on the way, has  civilized things like showers,  wash basin and T.V.'s and spends  the time riding around the local  country side while his passengers  exercise their masochistic tendencies ploughing through the  wilderness of B.C. Everyone to  his own I guess, but we'll let  the reader decide who is the most  rational.  Mark had no problem at all  delivering his goods to the point  of take off and we arrived there  at about 1:00 on Sunday.    The  ever and by the time we came out  we had stopped trying and just  ploughed through regardless.  Maybe a word or two on the type  of mud involved would be in  order. For the most part it was  sticky, sometimes clayey, with  strong suction powers which were  likely to relieve you of your footwear as well as your dignity (if  you had any left). Part of it was  very wet, and also very deep, and  yet there were parts, few and far  between, when you were given a  slight relief when you hit some  dry ground. This was mostly at  the far end however, when most  people had given up all hopes of  ever being dry again. It was  virtually impossible to indicate on  film just what the trail was like,  so instead we took pictures of  the poor unfortunates who survived this muddy initiation when  they came out. We spent the  first night at Fishermen's River  in really the only place there was  along the first part of the route  where it was anything like practical to camp. The park is completely underdeveloped and consequently there are no camp sites  or facilities whatsoever. We went  to bed that night knowing things  could only get better the next  day and for the most part slept  well. We left much of the spare  gear behind here, and spent  much time in the morning trying  to throw ropes over tree branches, lashing up garbage bags  containing all kinds of things from  spare clothes to food and coping  with ropes that persisted in  breaking at the psychological  moment and dumping the goods  and you back into square one  again.  The second day was much like  the first except that the mud was  not quite as gungy, or icky, or  whatever the appropriate word  might be. It was just wetter and  deeper. We started finding evidence of habitation and pieces of  the trail were corduroy logs.  We came across an old homestead on top of a hill which appeared to have been a very prosperous and well looked after  place. There were barns and  workshops, a school by the looks  of things, and a couple of houses.  All collapsed of course, but the  thing that struck me most was the  fertile look of the fields. It looked  as though you could just go in  there and start all over again  without any trouble. .The fields  . were a beautiful green and for  the most part clear of trees.  There were some very big hawthorn trees there and no doubt an  orchard. There had been a telephone. We found a sign just  about buried in a growing tree  to indicate that.  When one sees the amount of  work that went into establishing  such a place as this, one is inclined to wonder what sort of  people these were. They were  Danes and Les Peterson in his  book The Cape Scott Story gives  a very good insight into the development and subsequent collapse of the colony in the late  19th and early 20th Centuries.  We took lots of pictures and hope  they indicate to some extent what  we saw. Some of the engineering  jobs that these people undertook  were prodigious when one considers they were all done by  manual labour and under extremely difficult conditions.  And so on to the northernmost  tip of Vancouver Island, a beautiful and rugged coastline with  white sandy beaches, little sandy  coves and rocky points sticking  out into the ocean. The end result was well worth any problems  we may have encountered on the  way in. While we were there we  experienced just about everything weatherwise from a gale  and heavy rain to a - sparkling  clear morning which made you  feel good to be alive.  We checked on high tide marks  and concluded that we would be  quite safe to pitch our tents up  by the washed up logs. Some of  the gang built themselves a very  commodious looking lean-to out  of junk they picked off the beach,  some went into the trees and  pitched their tents while Jerry  Lou Wickwire made a shelter  out of plastic sheet and string  among the logs on the beach.  Ron Breadner and I put up the  tent on the beach and with the  tarp which acted as a fly sheet  we made a comfortable entrance  where we could store our gear  and eat our meals as well as  having a place to entertain our  visitors.  The whole scene sounds idyllic  but late that night we were given  a rude awakening. The tide kept  coming in and in and in and  despite all the incantations both  polite and otherwise, it kept on  Facts About  FUNERALS  / ������  ' ��� The local funeral home1  charges no fee for pre-arranging  and recording your funeral instructions.

Some little guy came running along to say their tent had  six inches of water in it. Just  what he expected us to do we  didn't know but Ron's blunt response was, "move it". What  else could you say in a situation  like this? The co-operation and  help given by those more fortunate was really fantastic and the  It is really amazing, to me anyway, how people's attitudes can  change in just a few short days.  On the way in I think we would  have all turned back on the slightest excuse and we made up our  minds to leave behind any surplus  food, in order to lighten our loads.  On the way out, however, nobody  dreamed of such a thing and  everything came out. I had a bit  of an accident going in and the  older  boys  shared   in   carrying  their hands, or is it feet, full,  patrolling backwards and forwards to make sure everybody  was there.  Everybody agreed that coming  out was not anywhere near as  bad as going in and there was  lots of laughter and ribbing going  on and even the makings of a  song, whose words might not be  too appropriate for an article  like this. It was made easier too  by the fact that by this time we  had learned not to try and avoid  the sink holes but to just plough  through the works regardless.  For anyone thinking of going to  Cape Scott, it seems that rubber  boots are the most practical footwear. Boots tend to wear blisters.  Coast News, June 21,  however careful you might be and  of course running shoes are  definitely out of the question.  It is a good idea to take a pair  along to wear on the beach or in  camp.  Mark turned up right on time  escorted by one of Rayonier's  trucks. This is an active logging  road and the trucks are really  something to behold. Everything  is radio controlled so they know  just where everybody is at a  specific point in time. We came  out a little bit different way to  save wear and tear on the bus and  instead of driving over gravel  roads for many hours, we took the  ferry" from Beaver Cove to Kelsey  Bay.  On the way up we visited a  fish processing plant at Port  Hardy and watched the halibut  being unloaded from the boats.  The plant was closed down, it  being Sunday, but I'd never seen  anything like this before and I  think most of the youngsters  hadn't either. We also stopped  at the logging museum in Say-  ward but most of the interest  there was centered on the ice  cream, of which there was a great  variety.  All in all I think it was a very  successful trip and let's hope Ron  Breadner doesn't carry out his  annual threat of calling it quits.  |i^upari|  |      Thongs @$1.49     j  |  at WESTERSUND's \  1977. 5.

Some of the unfortunates  had their tents or tarps blown  down again and Jerry Lou finished up with either two or three  extra bods in her little shelter.  Nobody" got. much sleep that  night, needless to say. Afterward we can look back and see  it as all one big joke but at the  time it seemed like anything but a  joke.  Time and tide didn't allow us to  go right out to the Cape but we  took pictures, saw some beautiful  flowers, indian paint brush, a  little yellow flower growing on  the rocks called hairy cinque-  foil, gorse, which is similar to  broom but with spines and others  which we weren't able to identify.  The beachcombing crew found all  sorts of shells, a Japanese pop  carton and a couple of glass  floats.  some of my load without any  complaints at all.  Jerry Lou produced one of her  masterpieces of the culinary art  at Fishermen's River. It served  two purposes, one to lighten the  load by using up a great deal of  the dried fruits and bannock  mix and secondly and most important, to make everybody  happy. She did an encore at  Nimkish River camp when she  used up the rest of the fruit,  but this time came up with some  great little turnovers. I had mine  in bed and believe me, that's a  great way to end a day.  Scamp and Gypsy, our canine  friends had a great time despite  the mud and water. We were a  bit concerned about them because  neither of them ate very much,  not enough it seemed, to replace  the energy they were using up.

She looks  so small. And she is the smallest  ferry on the coast. But each day  she makes the run from Langdale  to Gambier Island, and on weekends, she lands at Keats Island  as well.  Thursday is 'shopping day' for  the people on Gambier, and when  we boarded the Dogwood Princess the other afternoon, she was  about half full. Groceries, packs  and suitcases clogged the wheel-  house, and down below, in the  passenger section, people returning from a day of shopping  mixed with the batch of school  kids,  on  their way  home  from  school. Unlike the wedding-cake  monsters that ply their way from  Nanaimo to Horseshoe Bay,  there are no strangers aboard the  Dogwood Princess. Everyone  knows one another, and as we  make the short run across the  channel to New Brighton, the  captain and the passengers joke  back and forth. Bits of local  information get passed on. There  is talk about real estate, and  someone's heard that a certain  farm has just been sold.   Some  one else talks about the new  owner's plans to log it all off, and  by the time this has been discussed at length, we've arrived  at our first stop on Gambier.  Rob Bennie, the Captain on  the run this day, slides the boat  expertly into the wharf. Denny  Berry, Purser and 2nd Mate  jumps off and ties her up. Most  of the passengers step off here.

As we run down the  bay, through the channel between  Twin Islets and Gambier, Rob and  Denny talk about what it's like,  running the smallest ferry in the  B.C. ferry system.  There have been times, they  say, when the head office seems  to forget about them. Passengers  phoning about schedules are  sometimes told the boat doesn't  even exist. Others ask if they can  take their car on board, and are  told, yes they can. These arrive  at the end of the wharf in Langdale, take a quick look at the tiny  boat, and ask: "Uh, where do  I put my car?"  The radiophone crackles in the  wheelhouse, and over the steady  hum of the Jimmy diesel that  moves us along at about 8-9  knots, we occasionally hear the  captains of the larger ferries  talking to one another. Soon we  arrive at the last stop for today,  and discharging the few passengers left on board, we're on our  way back to Langdale. "Home to  supper," says the Captain, and  there's momentary silence as we  stare  out the  windows   at  the  This Week's Specials....!

We all agree, then, about what  an incredibly beautiful place we  live in. Rob, sitting at the wheel,  keeps an eye out for deadheads.  The weather's fine now, he says,  but the run can get a little, tricky  in the fall, when the inlet fills  with fog. Snowstorms in the winter can make it a little hairy,  too, and sometimes they make the  trip using their radar set to guide  them in. But most ofthe time it's  easy sailing. Once, a pod of  Killer Whales swam by, coming  within five feet of the bow, but  that's the most excitement  they've had in awhile.  Denny leans up against bulwark in the wheelhouse, speculating a bit about this job he's  got. He and Rob agree it's a good  one, and neither of them can see  quitting to go do something else.  On weekends the luggage gets  crammed in up to the ceiling,  and Denny has to lean on it to  keep it all from falling over.  But really, they have no complaints. They like the casual  atmosphere of their work. They  like the fact that they've come to  know everyone on the island.  "On this boat you're hauling  people," says Denny, and it's  this that makes the work so enjoyable."  The return trip has taken us  an hour. Back at Langdale the  Dogwood Princess gets tied up  again for the night. As we look  down at her, still listing a bit to  starboard, it's still hard to believe  she's part of the B.C. ferries  system. But it's not hard to think  that it's the best ferry trip on the  coast. The Captain and the Mate  seem to think so, and you'd be  hard put to find a passenger  that wouldn't agree.  By Gerry Ward  As I mentioned in one of my  earlier articles, discus are a very  hard fish to keep. I would like  to try and solve some of the problems associated with these most  beautiful of tropical fish.  The latin name for discus is  Symphysodon; their habitat is the  Rio Negro and Amazon. There  are several types of discus, the  only difference between each type  is size and colour.  The biggest problem with discus is disease. These fish are  extemely sensitive to any disease  that may be present in an aquarium. The one time that I tried  raising discus they got a disease  called 'hole-in-the-head' disease.  This is caused by a parasite which  literally bores a hole into the"  fishes head with the eventual  outcome being death. I found  out from a fish dealer that the  best way of preventing this  disease and most others is to keep  the water temperature high,  between 86 and 91  degrees F.  This high temperature also enhances the fishes colour and  greatly assists their growth rate.  Another mistake I made was  housing the discus in too small  an aquarium. Allow each fish  at least ten gallons of water  and make sure the aquarium is  no smaller than 30 gallons. Be  sure the water is soft and slightly  acid, if the water is hard or alkaline the fish will waste away.  Be, sure to have plenty of live  food on hand, also beef heart.  My discus also ate Tetra Min  staple diet, which they didn't  seem to mind. At the time I  had an unlimited supply of mosquito larvae,1 earthworms, and  white worms. The discus would  eat all readily. I would think  that freeze dried foods, frozen  foods, and large brine shrimp  would also be accepted.  I was told, and have read that  if a discus does not like the aquarium or the food or the water,  that he will simply stop eating  Come cry with me  Dear Ann:  I have this shyness. I am a 22  year old guy and I find my lack  of height a problem. There's no  other thing that makes me feel  so insecure. For instance when  I'm dancing with a well-rounded  lady and her cleavage is on my  eye level. I put my arm around  her and my hand is in an embarrassing spot. What to do?  I don't know where to look.  Shortie  Dear Shortie:  I'm always pleased to give my  opinion.      Have   you   tried   the  elevator shoes? Or look for short  girls? You can carry a box for  standing on while kissing. Dancing is a problem. Keep her  near a stair and just go up a  couple of steps then sway to the  music. Keep her attention so  she doesn't notice you aren't  going anywhere. I've looked at  many a shirt front, you may have  the best of it after all.  Dear Ann:  I live quite a distance from my  boy friend as he is going to an out  of province university.    We are  and will starve himself to death.  So this is another thing that must  be watched for.  A third of the water in the  aquarium should be changed once  a week, and the bottom and filters kept well cleaned also. If  you should be successful and find  you have a pair that will breed  you will find that the parents  will fan and guard the eggs.  When the young hatch out and  begin to swim they will adhere  to the parents side. This is their  form of nourishment because they  eat the slime exuded through the  parent's skin. Once they have  grown somewhat they will begin  to take food on their own. These  fish when reared to the size of  a silver dollar may sell for as high  as seven dollars apiece. This is  a problem also because if you  wish to buy a discus you may  have to pay anywhere from seven  dollars for small discus up to  one hundred and twenty dollars  for a nice looking adult discus.  ANN NAPIER  writing back and forth about how  we feel and our relations in the  past. Well my worry is that someone else on his end or mine might  read them. I feel like I'd like  plain letters again but I don't  want my boy friend to think I  don't care the same as before.  Uneasy  Dear Uneasy:  There's an old saying 'Never  put anything in a letter you  wouldn't want to see in the newspaper". There's always another  language. If nothing else, develop symbols of your own, set  these by telephone and only the  operator will know. Remember  how they used to sign letters  XXXXOOO hugs and kisses?  But I don't know what is a kiss  and what is a hug, so start from  there.  Dear Ann:  I've always heard the sincere  man doesn't bring gifts as often  as the person that has something  to hide. Everytime my other  half comes home with flowers or  candy with no occasion, I think  of this even though I love it.  Puzzled  Dear Puzzled:  Don't look a gift horse in the  mouth. He seems thoughtful.  That's a virtue. I think some  men use the excuse of sincerity to  be selfish with their money.  Little Anne David is shown at work in the Dogwood Cafe,  from the Sunshine School working in the community.  Dogwood Takeout  By Richard Parker  I was working in the Dogwood  the other day when I overheard  one of the regulars describe his  pal's performance at a recent  party as "drinking like a fish".  This started in me a train of  thought or what passes as such  as my trains often seem to finish  up in a siding.  Anyway, the absurdity of this  remark suddenly struck home.  Why should a fish merely because it lives in a liquid environment be put down as a dipso  maniac? I'm sure that there are  candidates for the A.A. but that's  no reason to condemn the whole  race out of hand.  It also brought to mind a much  maligned bird, the Coot. I have  heard, "as drunk as a Coot",  "as bald as a Coot", and "as  crazy as a Coot". We had several  flocks of these birds outside our  house a while ago as they rested  on their way through and I inspected them carefully for visible  signs of aberration. I found them  to be a rather plump bird, on the  Anne is one of three students  small side with a slate grey body  and a white beak. Apart from  trying to run on the surface of  the water when they took off, I  found no abnormalities. In fact,  on looking them up in the Bird  Book I found them to be residents  of the Hawaiian Islands. Any  bird that can get it together to  live in the lotus eating area  doesn't lack anything in the brain  department.  Some of the phrases that you  come across seem a little dated  nowadays.

Nowadays though, I think any  Lord would be too busy trying to  keep his stately home out of the  clutching grasp of the Taxman to  be seen lurching around the estate flogging the peasants and  ravishing their daughters.  I have always had a fondness  for the phrases that have their  roots in everyday things. Two  that spring to mind from my  Northern relatives are "As daft  as a brush" and "As thick as  two short planks". I presume  that both these objects being  wooden - it was suggested that  the recipient of the phrase had  the same material wedged between his ears. Though I am  open to suggestions on the subject.  I think what has happened with  all these phrases is that they have  been in use for "a coon's age" .  and that no one thinks about them  anymore. Is a raccoon a long  lived animal? Far be it for me to  cramp anyone's style, but the  next time a particularly apt  phrase springs to mind. Think  about it.  , Nature Lover's Spot: As I  have been leaving the Dogwood  the last few evenings it has been  a chorus of "Ribbit-Ribbit-Rib-  bit".

He was competing  I in the Obstacle Race during the recent Gibsons Elementary School Sports Day.  Teacher Roger Douglas accepts a hot-dog shaped birthday cake from students at recent  Gbsons Elementary School Sports Day. The popular teacher's birthday coincided with  the annual sports day.  Gibsons Sports Day  Friday, June 17th, saw Gibsons  Elementary School hold its annual  sports day in the sweltering heat  of high summer. This year there  were some interesting changes  in the format of the school sports  events with emphasis being on  novelty or obstacle type races so  that the same children would not  wind up winning every event.  Students competed in eight  categories: There were Boys and  Girls Divisions with sub-divisions  being for students of thirteen  years and over; students of twelve  years; students of eleven years;  and fourth sub-division in each  division of students of ten years  and under.  In the Division A Obstacle Race  for boys of thirteen years and  over, the winner was John Kitson  who won in a time of three minutes, forty-five seconds. This was  a very close race with Brian  McKay, Ian McLellan, and Allan  Carroll in that order all finishing  within sixteen seconds of Kitson.  In other track events in this  division Mark McConnell, Mike  Hinz, Tony Saul were also first  place finishers. David English  won the High Jump in this  division and Mike Hinz won the  Long Jump. Mark McConnell  added to his laurels by winning  the Ball Throw.  In the Girls Senior Division  for girls thirteen years and over  the Obstacle Race was won by  Lisa Bjornson with Sigrid Skogmo  and Sharon Enevoldson finishing  second and third respectively.  Lisa Bjornson also won both  other track events in this division.  Sabina Foss won the High Jump  competition at this level with  Lisa Bjornson coming back to  take the Long Jump. Sigrid  Skogmo won the Ball Throw.  The Division C Group was for  boys twelve years of age and in  the Obstacle Race at this level  Clint Mahlman finished first,  with Tom Kurucz and Yvan  Cadorette finishing second and  third respectively. Tom Kurucz  and Clint Mahlman split the other  two track events in this category  between them before Clint  Mahlman won both the Long  Jump and the High Jump. Shawn  Murphy won the Ball Throw in  Division C.  Hanna Jonas won the Obstacle  Race in Division D for girls of  twelve years of age with Yvonne  Valencius and Jacqueline Fortin  finishing second and third. The  other track events at this level  were won by Barbara Andreef  and Yvonne Valencius. Crystal  Allanson won the High Jump with  Hanna Jonas coming back to  take the Long Jump and Ilona  Hirschfelder taking the Ball  Throw.  Vince Coates won the Obstacle  Race in the Group E, boys aged  eleven division. Kevin Horner  and Cameron Lineker finished  second and third. Lineker and  Horner each won one of the other  track events. Michael Christiansen won the High Jump and Vince  Coates made himself a double  winner by taking the Long Jump.  Jimmy Sanders won the Ball  Throw in this division.  Division F for girls aged eleven  years saw the Obstacle Race  won by Kirsten Storvold with  Renee Michaud and Donna MacFarlane second and third. Storvold and Michaud each won one  of the other track events with  Michaud also winning the Long  Jump. Sandra McQuary was first  in the Ball Throw.  Division G for boys ten years  and under had a dead heat in  the Obstacle Race with both  Ryan Hogan and David Moore  finishing the course in four  minutes and three seconds.  James Reed came in third place.  Ken Allanson and George Fallis  each won one of the other two  track events. Fallis also won  the High Jump in this division  with Alan Fiedler taking the  Long Jump. John Anderson won  the Ball Throw.  Finally in Division H for girls  of ten years and under, Julie  Macedo won the Obstacle Race  followed by Karen Kiene and  Tracey Pearson in second and  third place. Celina Owen and  Sasha Stout each won one of the  other track events with Owen  taking the High Jump and Donna  Andreef winning the Long Jump.  The Ball Throw in this division  was won by Nancy Ten.  The results of the High Jump  in Division F for eleven year  old girls was not made available  to the Coast News.

A few weeks ago my owner,  Karl, started to walk, me slower  and more often. He also used a  fancy leather halter on me. Boy,  right then I could "iell that a show  was coming up. Every summer  there's a show.  The day before the show was  when he started to get on my  nerves. In the morning, he gave  me a bath. Was I mad at him!  He washed me.with cold water!  I showed him I didn't like it by  moving around. He put this  gooey white stuff on me which he  tells me makes me smell nice,  (personally I'd rather smell like  a cow). After I got my bath, he  got this rough paper, which he  calls sandpaper, and rubbed it  all over my horns. I hear people  say that it hurts like a dentist's  drill, whatever a dentist's drill  is! Then, when he made them  smooth, he put this stuff on them  called cooking oil. After he made  my horns shine he put this black  stuff called shoe polish on my  hoofs. He says that it makes  them look good. After he had  done all this to me, he said that  I was fit for a show.  I didn't really like the bath  but I was proud. He walked me  down the. road to my friend's  barn to show me off.  The next day I was sure there  was going to be a show because  Karl began to brush me even  more. He reoiled my horns and  put shoe polish on my hoofs  again. He put on my udder  something called baby  powder,  which smelled funny. Around  noon he fed me full of this real  good grain. Karl says this makes  me show good.  After I was "filled-out"-as  Karl says, all these people began  to come with all my friends.  (I wasn't even prepared for company.) There was Babs, Hal,  Jody, Anne and also my son,  Bertie.  When all of my friends were  there, this tall man who everyone  calls "Mr. Chamberlain" came  into the ring and said that the  judge from the Fraser River  Valley wasn't coming. They  called this judge "Mr. Wilson"  and I disliked him! He always  calls me fat. He teases my owner  and says I look like a Beefalo.  Even though he wasn't coming  we still held the show.  I got led around in a big circle  with all my friends in some kind  of class called "showmanship"  where Karl walks me real nice  and gets points for the way I  look. I came in second in that  class. In the next class an adult  walked me around in a circle and  we were judged by the kids.  I came first in that class because  Mr. Chamberlain says a milking  cow always beats heifers. I was  so happy as that was the first  time in my life that I got a first.  When they finished walking me  around they tied me up and I  lay down to rest.  All the kids and adults had  things called "refreshments".  Then the kids sat down and had  a meeting. While they were  talking, Royal Ruby told me that  Bellavista Sparkies Bunny gets an unorthodox  milking at the recent 4-H Club Show. Photo  by Karl Johnson.  I was going to be milked in a few  minutes. That was okay, but  when they said all of the kids  were going to take turns, I was  shocked!  Then Karl went and got the  milking bucket arid then made me  stand up. He started to milk  then all of the other kids took  turns. They weren't too good at  it. I think they got more on their  hands  than   in   the   bucket!      1  was good for a while then I started to move around because I  wanted Karl to come and properly  milk me. I hope they don't do  it again. After they milked me,  everyone began to leave.  Overall the weekend wasn't  too bad. I don't know what  happened at the meeting except  that the club is going to paint our  new trailer, prepare a float for  the Sea Cavalcade parade and  begin to sell flowers next month.

"The man with a full stomach  is easily persuaded that nobody  is starving."  These lines from a poem by  Irving Layton remind us that over  indulgence in food tends to dull  sensitivity and anaesthetize conscience. We comfortable Canadians need that reminder from  one of our poets.  Some of us, of course, do not  have sufficient food, but most of  us have more than we need, and  public health authorities report  that more of us suffer from obesity than from malnutrition. How  many, really,- are as concerned.  - about famine in ���Africa and the  Indian sub-continent as we are  about rising food-costs at home?  And does not our fussing over  weight-losing diets and natural  foods have ironical undertones  in a world in which two-thirds  of the people go to bed hungry  every night?  The problem of widespread  hunger has been with mankind  since the beginning of history,  but in our time it has acquired  new dimensions of challenge,  for famine is now technologically  obsolete.

Kennedy  said when he was President of  S3  i  CAMpbell's  FAMILY  SHOES  &  LEATHER GOODS  "IN THE HEART OF DOWNTOWN SECHELT"  Your  friendly   neighbourhood   drop-off   point  for Coast News  Classified Ads.

The most dangerous enemy  democracy has today is the acute,  nagging, dehumanizing poverty  of so many of the world's people.  We have more to fear from hunger of the starving millions than  we have from totalitarian ideologies. What kinds of political  decisions would you make if you  and your family and most of the  people in your community suffered from chronic malnutrition?  As Bertrand Russell once asked.  "If one man offers you democracy  and another offers you a bag of  grain, at what stage of starvation  will you prefer the grain to the  vote?"  Our government's recent enlargement ofthe defence budget -  an enlargement which may have  some justification but which also  has some distressing elements of  ambiguity - must not be at the  expense of its external relief  and development programs.  These programs are probably far  more significant for national  security, in the long run. than  are all the things that might be  done by our Department of  National Defence. For Christians, of course, they are a Gospel  imperative.  SECHELT - 885-3277  POWELL RIVER - 485-2748  Vane. Airport  278-3941  Panoramic view. Landscaped grounds. 2 carports.

By Howard White  Considered overall, the B.C.  coast presents seagoing ships  with one of the most complicated  navigational problems to be found  anywhere in the world, and if  one were to list the five most  individually treacherous passages  on the coast, three of them would  be found to lie along the proposed  Kitimat tanker route. Dixon  Entrance, between the Queen  Charlotte Islands and the lower  end of the Alaska Panhandle, is  characterized by heavy tide-rips,  eight-foot overfalls, unmarked  reefs and severe storms at all  times of the year. Rose Spit on  Graham Island, an imperceptibly  gradual sand spit that juts toward  the mainland in ten miles of reefs  and shoals, lies at the turn of  the tanker route from Dixon Entrance down into Hecate Strait.  After the Juan de Fuca mouth it  is probably the coast's second  ranking "graveyard of ships".  Hecate Straits, between the  Queen Charlottes and the mainland, is notorious for its shallowness, its reefs and the unpredictability of its storms.  These waters are not unnavi-  gable, in fact they are in constant use by medium-sized ships  going in and out of Prince Rupert.  Nevertheless, the hazard is extreme and no government that  will send ships as accident-prone  as these tankers have proven to  be into an area where the margin  of safety is so low can escape the  charge it is betraying its environmental trust.  The above-mentioned hazards,  which should be enough in themselves to disqualify the Kitimat  proposal, relate onto the open  waters, before the tankers turn  down the narrow channels leading inland. The inside leg would  begin with the tankers' passing  down Principe Channel on the  east side of Banks Island, a  straight 50-mile run some 1.5  miles wide at the narrowest point  with no outstanding hazards. The  real problems begin at the south  end of this channel where the  route requires a 90-degree turn  on a radius of approximately five  miles into Nepean Sound. Still  this is nothing compared to the  twist that occurs some ten miles  later as the course runs through  Wright Sound in a Z-configura-  tion requiring two over-90-degree  turns, one of them with barely a  mile radius. Wright Sound is  also a wind funnel, a tidal crossroads and is bisected midway by  Grenville Channel carrying the  small boats, ferries, cruise ships,  barges and coasting freighters  ofthe Inside Passage.  Captain H. L. Cadieux of  Nanaimo, former curator of the  B.C. Maritime Museum and mas  ter mariner with 30 years experience on the north coast, has  one word for the plan to run  tankers through Wright Sound:  "Crazy."  "These ships are up over 1,000  feet now," he says. "They  take 5 to 7 miles to stop. And to  turn, even a tug takes four  lengths. Whether there exists  the bare physical possibility of  getting them through is beside  the point. In bad weather you  may have to cut your rate of travel  to three or four knots, and when  you do that you lose steerage.  Instrument failure is not a rarity,  it is a constant. So is human  error. The point is when you trap  a ship of that size in a place that  limited, these little everyday  problems become lethal. You  have only half a mile to spare.  Two or three minutes and it's  all over."  Captain Donald Peck of North  Vancouver, another retired master often called as an expert  witness at maritime accident  hearings and trials, is confident  any serious enquiry will find the  Kitimat route unusable.  "It's not a question of Hecate  Strait and it's not a question of  Douglas Channel," Peck Says,  "It's a question of Wright Sound  and Wright Sound is out of the  question. I've towed barges  through there and barely made  it. It's a hell of a place."  Leggatt on tankers  By Stuart Leggatt, M.P.  New Westminster  Ecological disaster for the  lower mainland came one giant  step closer this month, with the  announcement by the Kitimat  oil consortium that they had  withdrawn an application to construct a pipeline inland to Edmonton.  The proposed Kitimat terminal  and pipeline would have fed  Alaskan oil to an energy-hungry  United States. Now that this  particular scheme has fallen by  the wayside, Alaskan oil will be  shipped by tanker down the coast  of British Columbia, through the  Juan de Fuca Strait and past the  Gulf Islands to Cherry Point.  All of us are familiar with the  navigational hazards any oil  supertanker would face as it  weaved its way through these  treacherous waters.  The Liberal government in  Ottawa argues that precautions  have and are being taken. Indeed, new radar installations  have been set up. However, even  the best in new technology cannot  fight nature.  And when a fifty mile an hour  gale hits the straits, or when a  human navigation error occurs,  then the $16 million the federal  government is spending to upgrade its facilities will be of no  avail, and a natural calamity  will result.  The fact is.the federal government has done little to protect  the people of British Columbia  and their environment by actively  seeking out alternate methods  of transporting Alaskan oil.  We have known for many years  now that there would be a surplus  of Alaskan oil to be shipped  south. We knew that, tanker  transportation was a method  heavily favoured by the American  oil companies. And we knew the  environmental risks such tanker  traffic would entail.  In fact, Parliament debated  this very issue back in 1968,  or nine years ago! In all this  time, the Liberals have not produced or acted upon a single  alternative.  Opposition members here in  Ottawa have called for the development of Gray's Harbour on  the Pacific coast as an oil port,  so that no interior waters need  be used by tankers.  This proposal was worthy of  investigation. Instead, it was  never acted upon.  It is interesting to note how the  Americans themselves have dealt  with the issue of tanker traffic  and the environmental hazard it  poses.  Los Angeles would appear to  be ideally suited as an Alaskan  oil terminus. However, American  environmental groups so impressed the U. S. government as  to the oil pollution danger posed  by giant supertankers that Los  Angeles was eliminated.  There has never been a supertanker spill in waters comparable  either to the Hecate Strait-Douglas Channel area or to Georgia  Strait but a spill which occurred  some years ago in Japan's Inland  Sea gives some indication of the  cleanup problem that would be  involved. That cleanup operation  involved 250,000 people and cost  the Japanese government 168  million dollars.  "Where in B.C. would we get  250,000 people?" asks regional  director Herbert Buchanan of the  Department of Transport's  marine services branch. "And  if we rounded them.up, how could  we deploy them on a costline  we deploy them on a coastline  often inaccessible except by  sea?"  Obviously we would have to do  with less manpower and spend  more money, resorting to drastic  and expensive technical measures such as napalm bombing. The  largest tankers contemplated for  the Alaska run would also spill  up to six times as much oil as the  50,000 tons involved in the Japanese spill. The bill could go as  high as one billion dollars and  a substantial portion of the B.C.  coast - one of the world's geographic showplaces - would be  turned overnight into an industrial cesspool.  The burden of this disaster  would fall exclusively on the  shoulders of the B.C. taxpayer  since the provincial government  has shown no inclination to enact  legislation making shippers responsible for spill damages and  cleanup costs, a power Dr. Thompson admits the province has.  If the spill occurred in the lower  Georgia Strait area or Fraser  River estuary with its valuable  salmon-rearing resources and  wildfowl nesting grounds, would  be irretrievably destroyed.  The beaches of the lower Gulf  Islands, the White Rock-Crescent  Beach area, the Vancouver area  and the Sunshine Coast would  be killed, and could not be restored in time to prevent a collapse of the $300-million-dollar-a-  year tourist industry - would see  its most profitable run ��� the Fra?  ser sockeye - severely reduced,  Sound Construction  Car pen ter- Con tractor  n     v  Interior Finishing  House v Framing  Concrete Form work  \      V  Gary Wallinder   886-2316  Box 920        Gibsons \  OPEN HOUSE  Verda Schneider and Leora Aplett  and families  cordially invite  friends, relatives and neighbours of  Dick Atkinson "  to help them celebrate his 90th Birthday  on Saturday, July 9th, 1977  from 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m.  at the Gibsons Winter Club  The  RAINBOW'S  END  Boutique  Individually designed clothes  ���    for sale and made to order   '  We will be open 11:30-5:30  Thursday, Friday and Saturday  each week  its get-away  ATTENTION VACATIONERS  With school almost over for the summer, it is time to start preparing for your vacation.

These are only the most concrete effects, measurable in hard  cash terms, but a major disaster  of this proportion has less tangible effcts which can be just as  devastating.     For one thing it  produces the most intensive kind  of world-wide bad publicity, and  this has a very long-lasting effect  _ on such things a provincial borrowing power, immigration and  tourism, to merely begin a long  list.   For another thing it would  severely diminish the quality of  life for waterfront communities  and very probably cause a population drain of the more mobile  skilled and professional  classes  away from the coast.  One effect of disasters too  large to be readily absorbed,  which has been observed in every  major earthquake and flood, is  a severe demoralization throughout the affected population,  leaving people too spiritless to  carry on normal life-support  activities let along make the  enormous extra effort required  for rebuilding.  Without even considering the  oilsoaked ducks, the rotting clams  and oysters at low tide, the stinking carcasses of seals, killer  whales, fish and seaweed heaped  along the beaches like driftlogs -  the environmental loss per se,  which by any true perspective  would be the greatest loss - we  can see that the collective effects  of a supertanker spill in southern  waters would be sufficient to  cause major social and economic  breakdown.

Last week's winner was Paul Robins of RR1,  sechelt who correctly identified and located the rock marker at the bird sanctuary, Sechelt  Marsh.  Lifting the lid  By Andy Randall  Unless you're the cook you  never really know what's cooking,  so with that in mind the Sechelt  and District Association for  Retarded Children lifted the lid  off the cooking pot Saturday,  June 18th at Elphinstone Secondary School. This was their  first reception held since their  workshop started two months  ago, and constituted the gathering of their many volunteers  in the training of handicapped  children and youths. Special  emphasis rested on the invitation  of others interested in the association's programme. Volunteers  provided coffee, tea and eats.  Instructors and trainees who  had worked (as in every Saturday) from 10:00 a.m. until 12  noon set up their work exhibits  on a central table for display in  the reception hall. Among the  visitors who admired the bird-  houses, collapsible seats, and  knitted squares shown were some  notable citizens led by Mayor  Larry Labonte, and Mrs. Labonte,  Alderman Ted Hume, and wife  Louise; and Ted Peters, Probation Officer, with his wife  Arlyss, all gave their support  to the work done in this embryonic venture.  Anne Davis had several knitted  squares on the table. Though  not as yet for sale, the bird-  houses are worth buying for they  look handsome and sturdy.  President Mike Bujan of the  association gave the welcoming  address and told of the need for  a building of their own to house  'working gear' and space for  instructors and trainees. They  were grateful to the school board  for the loan of workrooms at  present.  Director   of  Workship,   Terry  Miller, talked of the need for  more volunteers. Then Ted  Dinsley, Workshop-Supervisor,  gave a run down on aims and  objectives of the association.  Mrs. Agnes Labonte, President  of the Human Resources Society  and Mrs. Hall of the society,  gave me some pointers on what  is needed to get these ambitious  programmes off to a good start.  It seems definite statistics are  called for; specific and well-  organized programming, coupled  with a clear support from the  public are demanded by government bodies before they will  loosen the purse strings to help  get localized movements on  solid ground.  "But," Mrs. Agnes Labonte  smiled, "It is easier to get that  help now than it used to be.  After all, all governments want  to de-institutionalize many of  their human concerns. They are  more glad now to pass their  responsibilities on to such as we  of the Human Resources Society,  and you people, who are more  vitally concerned than the government."  The Lions Club of Gibsons had  a representative, and though we  highly appreciate their services  and help in many ways, I respect  his wish to keep his name off  the record of those present.  We are delighted that one of  our students, Ken Mitchell, who  built some birdhouses under  tuition, is reported to have gone  on "Seeing-Eye Dog" training  for a while.  Acknowledgements at the reception were given to many instructors present. This feature  helped the visitors to get better  acquainted with those who work  behind the scenes. They were:  Ed Hauka, ex-R.C.A.F. mechanic, who  teaches  motor-mecha  nics; Ken Ostrom, chief volunteer wood-working instructor;  Mrs. Lily Skidmore, Mrs. Edith  Simmons, and Mrs. Ostrom who  help in needlecrafts. Jack MacLeod and Art McPhee are the  two volunteer drivers who bring  trainees to Elphinstone and also  use up their two hour waiting  time in teaching woodwork.  Karla Nygren and Norma Skogmo, two high school girls have  volunteered to help as they wish  to take academic courses in such  work and thereby make this  their career.  Chess  Tourney  The Cedars Inn will host an  open invitational chess tournament open to all Sunshine Coast  residents on Thursday, Friday  and Saturday, June 23rd to 25th.
