May 17,1977  question  response  The regional board members learned at the regular meeting  held on Thursday, May 12th, that the initial response to the  questionnaire to the public on Peninsula Recycling support  had been good. Sechelt representative Morgan Thompson  complained that the wording of the questionnaire had been  misleading in that it suggested that the amount of support  needed by Peninsula Recycling amounted to $700 only instead  of that sum per month oyer a period of seven months for a total  of. $4,900. Thompson suggested another questionnaire clarifying this point.  Initially this was agreed upon but the decision was later  changed when it was found that the questionnaire had been  incorrect in only one of the local papers. A corrected version  will be run in that paper this week.  On another controversial matter, the board received a letter  from B. C.. Hydro advising that  they will be conducting herbicide  spraying within the confines of  their substation grounds in Gibsons, Pender Harbour, Port  Mellon and Sechelt. This was the:  first time a letter had been received prior to the actual .spraying.   ' '.':.'" '   y-  A letter was also received from  Mrs. Aleeta, Gilker thanking the  regional board for using the name  Cliff Gilker Park in honour of her  late husband's contributions to  the community. A wooden sign  is being carved for the entrance  to the park.  In other regional board business, a petition by Mr. Brynelson  protesting the development of a  wilderness trail close to Brooks  Road in Pender Harbour had to be  postponed to a later date because  Mr. Brynelson's inability to be  present on May 12th. Mr. Brynelson maintains that the proposed trail will start nowhere and  go nowhere and merely impeded  future possible development in  the area.  Several of the by-laws under  unfinished business had already  been dealt with that same evening in the planning committee  meeting.- Consequently they  were passed in block. By-law  96.2, a land use amendment at  the Big Maples Motel, and by-law  122, the Cape Coburn land use  contract on Nelson Island were  both adopted. Emergency Program by-law 142 had been amended to fit the local needs and it  was given third reading.  The shortest- regional board  meeting on record adjourned at  8:20 p.m.  Regional Planning meet  On Thursday, the 12th of this Murphy's property in Halfmoon  month, before the^regjilar,;m-a6fc^^Bay^ and Plan 2746-concerning  ing, the Regional Board heltfl- Mr. Skytte's property were also  planning committee meeting.  On unfinished' business, the  first item was by-law 96.6. This  concerned Archie Halita's request for rezoning at Twin Creeks  quest for. rezoning at Twin  Creeks; The by-law received its  third reading. By-law 96:14 was  tabled. This was a proposal by  Mrs. Long to open a store on  Chaster Road. Board members  have received complaints that  because of the proposed site on  the crest of a hill, this would  cause a traffic hazard. Mrs.  Long is re-evaluating the situation, and will inform the board  when she wishes to go to public  hearing.

The board felt  that if they had to wait for the  Roberts Creek Planning Committee they could be looking at a  two-year wait as happened in  Sechelt. It was pointed out that  the Pender Harbour Committee  had only been in the works for  four months and was going along  well, and perhaps Sechelt was the  exception to the rule.  Jack Paterson, the representative for Area "A" put a damper  on this by saying, '"I have had  very violent rumbling about the  Pender Harbour Plan, and there  is no way it will be accepted  unanimously."  The legality of posting directional signs for marinas, - etc.,  next to the highway had been investigated. Under the Motor  Vehicle Act, there is an allotment  for signs on the road allowance  and it should not be necessary to  place them on private property.

Bill  Hawker, Superintendent of  Facilities Planning, conveyed the  welcome news of the approval to  the board members at a special  meeting held the previous day.  The swimming pool will be constructed under the gymnasium in  the new school with both inside  access and outside community  access. Because the gymnasium  will be constructed some twelve  feet above the level of the ground  it will be possible to have a glass  wall illuminate the swimming  pool with natural light. School  trustee Peter Precesky, in conversation with the Coast News, gave  credit to Shirley Vader and her  committee workers for, achieving  this community facility.  New site  Another item of discussion on  the May 12th agenda was the  need for expansion of the present  Bowen Island School site. The  board learned that Mr. James of  Union Steamship, who owns the  adjacent property, had been quite  intransigent in his refusal to negotiate with the school board  about the purchase of the requi  site land. In addition, Education  Minister Pat McGeer had refused  permission for the school board to  purchase the land by expropriation.  Under the circumstances, Bill  Hawker, Superintendent of Facilities Planning suggested that it  might be desirable to locate ah  entirely new site for the Bowen  Island School since the present  site was at best marginally desirable. The response of the.  Bowen Island residents present  at the meeting was enthusiastic  to this suggestion. A reasonably  level 5-acre site is now being  sought on the island:  Personnel  In personnel matters,. Mrs.  Doris Fuller, president-elect of  the Sechelt Teachers Association  was granted an additional five  days leave to continue her work  with the B.C. Teachers Federation's Investigation Committee  which is charged with the responsibility of investigating  ethics charges. Bob Graham of  the Elphinstone Secondary School  staff was granted permission to  miss the first semester of the next  school year to facilitate a visit  home to Australia. Mrs. Lang of  Sechelt Elementary School was  denied a year's leave of absence  on the grounds that it would be  her third such leave in five years.  by John Faustmann  w<Itfwas standing' room"only if  you arrived too late at ,the Community Concert held at the  Madeira Park Elementary School  last Wednesday night.

The Government giveth...  The most recent session of parliament  was, among other things, witness to the  government sponsored Gift Tax ��� Repeal  Act. The original act, made into law by  the W. A. C. Bennett administration,  stipulated that there would be a tax imposed on all gifts over ten thousand  dollars. With repeal, this law is no longer  in effect.  It is, at best, a weak-kneed rhetorical  question to ask who this repeal act will  benefit. How often have you or your  friends either given, or received, gifts  valued at more than ten thousand dol  lars?  How likely is it that this will occur  to you?  During the debate on the act, Dave  Barrett, leader of the opposition, cited  the fact that the present premier's father  had instituted the gift tax. He wondered  how the present government could justify  repeal. The only answer Socred .backbenchers could supply was: "Times  have changed". We cannot but agree .  with such trenchant analyses of the contemporary scene. Times have changed,  indeed. How comforting this thought  must be for the very wealthy.  and taketh away  Sometimes this Provincial Government  is quite beyond belief. A few weeks ago  it was Bill Vander Zalm announcing that  he had a surplus of $100 million in his  branch of the government. This week  it's Pat McGeer bowing out as head of  I.C.B.C. smugly announcing that he too  has managed to accumulate hundreds of  millions of dollars of the people's money.  This at a time when the Economic Council  of Canada in an unusually frank fashion  has said that the Socred Government is  mis-managing the economy of the province because of the vast sums of money  it has extracted from circulation.  At a time when the unemployment rate  in the rest of Canada is falling in B. C. it  is rising.    The number of bankruptcies  in small business continues to increase  alarmingly.   Quite simply, the Economic  Council of Canada says it's because there  isn't enough purchasing power in the  economy.   They advocate a reduction in  the seven per cent tax cuts and a return  to circulation of some of the monies that  .  the  government   is   squirrelling   away.  The government pays no attention. They  continue to beggar the province in the  name of fiscal responsibility.  It can't just be stupidity. One suspects  that this Bennett learned what he thinks  he knows from Bennett the Elder. Draw  money from the economy over a period of  three years or so and then, just the year  before election time, pour the huge,  accumulated surplus back into the eco  nomy with goodies for all and get yourself  re-elected for another round of the same  cynical manipulation. It worked, for  Bennett the Elder for twenty years and  obviously Bill thinks if it was good  enough for Daddy it's good enough for  me.  The drawbacks are not only found in  those   periods   when   the   government,  as now, is in the process of accumulating  its surpluses.     Serious problems arise  when the .surge of hoarded money reenters the economy.   Suddenly long-delayed projects of all kinds are possible  and the dis-used labour force is in great  demand and parlays that demand into  inflationary settlements to make up for  the lean years.    It's all such old hat.  The evils of the boom and bust cycle of  economics have been enunciated again  and again.   Ultimately it is a crass and  cruel way to manage an economy.    It  does  buy  short  term  election   results,  however, or at least it did for Daddy,  and beside that cynical short-term political goal what matters the suffering of  the people?  When are we going to be sophisticated  enough to realize that that's our money  that Vander Zalm, McGeer, and the rest  are so smugly pleased with themselves  for having accumulated? When are we  going to get irate at the cynical assumption that no matter what happens we can  be bought off every four years with our  own money? When are we going to throw  the rascals out?  from the files of Coast News  5 YEARS AGO  Richard Gaines, contractor who built  the Gibsons Public Library, handed the  keys to Mayor Wally Peterson at a ceremony during which the new library was  opened to the public.

L.R.Peterson .  Musings  John Burnside  A particularly sweet and fondly-remembered young lady once  described herself to me as a  reckless coward. It has a certain  panache, a flair not unlike the  lady herself. "She was sharp as  a razor, soft as a prayer." Ah,  but I digress. A reckless coward  she said she was. Myself am a  careful-K coward, -. a practicing  coward): a devout coward. I be-,  lieve in cowardice.  Show me   an    authentic   hero  conscious of his own heroism and  I'll put a safe distance between  us as soon as possible, knowing  full well that, like a gunslinger,  he'll just have to prove himself  sooner or later and someone  could get hurt. I try to be sure  that that someone isn't me.  Let me tell you my wood pigeon  story, just to illustrate how I  feel about heroism and cowardice. I was about twelve and on  my first visit ever to that other  country south of Scotland. I  - was an incredibly skinny, runny-  nosed twelve-year old with chronically cold feet and I found myself surrounded by beefy, hearty  English country boys. They were  very kind and allowed me to tag  along somewhere at the rear of  any procession we had. We played cricket at which they were  adept and at which I was a hopeless duffer. Now inside that  skinny bespectacled visitor beat  a proud Scottish heart, unwilling .  to acknowledge that there was an  Englishman in the whole world  better than him at anything at  all. I, of course, hadn't heard of  W- Shakespeare and a few other  Englishmen at that point.  In any case you have something  of the picture: a skinny little  Scots boy with secret fantasies  surrounded by bluff, extroverted  English boys who tolerated him  with condescending kindness.  , Came the day of the wood  pigeon adventure. Somebody in  the crowd had discovered a wood  pigeon's nest in a hole high in  the trunk of a big old oak tree.  There was a young pigeon in  there, he said, almost fully  grown, and off we all went in full  cry towards the magic place.  It was a very big old tree and  the first huge branches were  ���twenty,feet off the ground. The  means of access was.up through  ttye branches of a little crab-apple  .,tree.that stood beside it and then  a jump of about maybe four feet  to the great, fat, lower bough of  the oak tree. Up and across and  up again went my boisterous companions. I stalled at the jump.  Rage at myself as I might for  letting those Englishmen get the  better of me yet again, I could  no more make my legs make  that jump than I could fly to the  top of the tree. I was a coward.  Trembling and disgraced I  made my way carefully back down  through the branches of the apple  tree and waited for my companions On the ground. They  came soon down, the leader of  the group hearing the captured  wood pigeon with some considerable self-importance and we set  off back to the village with myself tagging along behind with  my secret burden of shame.  Back at the village things took  an ugly turn. There was a horse  trough full of water and, not  knowing what else to do with  their prize, the gang began to  take turns immersing the poor  terrified pigeon in the horse  trough. First to its neck, then to  its beak, finally they put it under  completely, held it, then brought  it up again so that only its head  was out. The bright eyes glittered in mute, non-comprehending terror and suddenly I forgot  about poor disgraced me and had  the pigeon and was climbing the  tree and putting it back in its  nest, unaware that I was doing it  until I had done it.  I made daily solitary visits  thereafter, taking it ears of oats  and wheat until the day came  when it had flown away.  Since that day I have been  quite comfortable in my cowardice. I try to avoid inflicting  physical pain on myself on any  pretext. I find the seemingly unavoidable psychic pain quite  enough, thank you. Despite an  occasionally haphazard life style  I "have managed to restrict my  physical injuries to one small  bump of a broken bone in my  hand and two stitches taken in  my left shoulder when 1 inadvertently crashed through a three-  quarter frosted glass door and  landed at the feet of the Vice-  President of Traffic during my  career in the C.N.R. I give all  the credit for successfully avoiding injury to my cowardice.  Heroism, it seems to me, is  very strong medicine and should  be taken in very small doses and  only when absolutely necessary.  The real heroes are the men who  go under ground in mines, out on  the high, seas in tiny fish boats,  and up on to the sidehills to  harvest trees. They carry their  heroism with the quiet matter of  fact of daily, necessary routine  and I salute them for it.  It's the other kind of heroism  we can do without. The posturing  idiocy of machismo-oriented identity search. A little thoughtful  cowardice might make the world  safer for all of us. For the rest,  if it must be done we must do it.  If it needn't be done, why bother?  Now the ladies in the audience  know all this full well. It is the  more absurd sex which is prone,  to posturing mock-heroics and  self-inflicted disaster. Yes, the  proper study of mankind is  woman. I find it takes all the  courage I can muster.  As Johnny Weismuller used to  say to the lion: "Ungawa, Sim-  bal". Which loosely translated  means "Go away, lion, I want to  talk to Jane." See you all again  next after a week which will be  as careful and cowardly as I can  manage it.  IN FAVOUR OF BEING ALIVE  ;+x  Twenty-four years ago  I tried to kill myself  but with my usual incompetence  did not manage to.  Not even one good poem  out of it.  Obviously  I was no Sylvia Plath.  I don't know  why I write about it now  (and even now  I am not giving details)  except maybe I write  for hortatory or didactic reasons  to say to someone  Don't!  It's been a dull life  much ofthe time  but lots better  than no life at all.  From the book Poems  by Elizabeth Brewster  Slings & Arrows  eorge Matthews  �����_-  A couple of times every year  my History 12 class gets around  to studying the Russian Revolution. Its pretty academic stuff:  names, dates, causes, effects and  so on; but almost every year  somebody wants to know what its  really like in Russia. Most people  have some pretty strange but predictable misconceptions about our  huge northern neighbour.  It could be argued that in a  true sense we'll never know what  it is like. If we go there, we take  with us the blinders of western  democratic attitudes and what we  see is what we want to see. On  the other hand if a Russian visitor  were to describe his country to  us he might be telling us what he  thinks we want to hear and we  might be skeptical.    '  Nevertheless,���   !'the: question  comes up regularly enough that  I do my best to give them my  perspective ofthe place. I was in  Russia for about  a  month   ten  years ago and what I think about  it now might be different than  what I tought about it then.    I  remember clearly however that  what I saw was not what I was  brought up to expect. I had some  strange idea that the sun never  shone in Russia. I believed down  to my very soul that the whole  place was populated by 250 million Raskalnikovs  and Karama-  zovs weeping and scowling their  way through a tedious Hell.    I  thought   everybody   in    Russia  wanted to espape to Canada.    I  had a vision of the entire Russian  people as being old, fat, sour and  neurotic. I had become convinced  that every other Soviet citizen was  in the army or, the police and the  other half were spies in plain  clothes keeping their eyes on the  first half.    When I entered the  counry via Vyborg I thought at  least ten undercover agents from  the K.B.G. would be following me  throughout my journey. The first  few days I was in the country my  neck got stiff from turning around  to see which one was on my tail  at the time.  . Why would I go to such a place  you might ask? I can't recall my  motives at the time.    I think I  was curious and I was anxious to  ' confirm my worst suspicions.  Now I'm not here to shake anyone out of their life long beliefs -  but the things I had suspected  were just not so.  When I crossed the "Iron  Curtain" I had had two weeks of  Russian lessons so I could at least  ask for food, a bed, a light and  gas for my car. I could also say  such useful phrases, in almost  impeccable Russian, as, "Children are the flowers of our lives".  I crossed into the "Communist  World" from the free and democratic state of Finland. Finns are  nice folk - Lapps, reindeer and  Calvinistic sauna dwellers are  temporarily amusing. My first  remembrance of the bleak vast-  ness of Russia is of six or seven  girls - beautiful, young, brown,  blonde bikini-clad girls harvesting a crop of hay just inside the  border. I've never shied away  from sowing but this time I  wanted to help with the reaping  with these laughing wood nymph  commies as they waved and giggled their way through the crop.  My wife was not with me at  the time.  Our first  stop  was  a  camp-  gound which, before our arrival,  I had been referring to as Gulag  #1. Russians, I found to my surprise, are avid campers. The  campground was not unlike a  B. C. Provincial campground except that it contained a number of  permanent tents which could be  rented for a small fee. There  were also two or three large  gazebos for cooking and eating.  Instead of the familiar aroma of  bacon and eggs one expects at  breakfast time in a B. C. campsite the Russians were, .more  likely to be preparing a breakfast  of boiled potatoes, cucumber and  sour cream.  . The gazebo is the social centre  of the campground and while our  fellow campers displayed no shyness about greeting us and asking  ���; >us-:-everying .from   ''How:.much  did your car cost you?" to "What  is your annual salary in Canada?"  and  "Do you  have  any James  Bond books with you?", I decided  that for more meaty conversation  like, what did Lenin really mean  by the phrase, "government by  armed minority?", or what is the  most current success in the Stak-  hanovite   movement?  and  what  have been the social and political  consequences of the Great Patriotic War?, I would have to spend  my time cooking and eating at  the gazebo. My first conversational victim was an English speaking   engineering   student   who,  upon listening politely to my first  ideological query, looked at me  as though I were a refugee from  the reading room of the British  Museum,    mumbled    something  about talking about it later and  suggested we go swimming like  everybody else.  My illusions about the Soviet  Union and its people continued to  be shattered throughout the trip.  The more I saw the more I wondered about what exactly it was  I had expected. I suppose I  had been the victim of some  strange and very unrealistic  attitudes taught to me "by well  meaning teachers and an ignorant  media. -���  Hardly any Russians are members of the Communist Party; the  people are extremely proud of  their history, both ancient and  modern, they are proud of their  country and its achievements;  they have the best ice cream in  the "world; there is much music, '  singing, laughing, dancing and  playing. The expected ancient  and bent peasant woman in  babushkas, bundled in black  shawls are most likely to be seen  on the beaches wearing bikinis..  I have seen church congregations  in Russia that would make Billy  Graham green with envy. Yes,  there, is a synagogue in Moscow.  I'm not suggesting that the  Soviet Union would be a great  place to live no more than I  would suggest any country in  Europe would be a.great place to  live. The. pressures of population and politics have resulted  in restrictions being placed on  movement that we would probably find intolerable. What I  am suggesting however is the  same thing that I suggested to  my History 12 class; that what  you have heard or what you believe to be true about the Soviet  Union just ain't necessarily so,  ho matter what Alan Eagleson  tells us.  f LETTERS to the EDITOR  Thank you    Some people     Strike  Editor: ^  Thanks to Ray and Pam Boothroyd for donating the theatre and  all the assistance the whole  family gave in getting and keep-  - ing the talent show together.  Thanks to the Gibsons Legion  for hanging in there when the  original idea changed and flowered into what happened on Mother's Day in the theatre. Thanks to  the Coast Family Society and all  the merchants for donating generously - so much so that each  entrant got a prize ��� thus eliminating competition.  Thanks to the paper for the  coverage, in ' true community  spirit, even through there were  some errors in time and phone  numbers, the message got across.  Graham Edney, "Thank you  man" for M.C-ing, and singing  some heart warming songs.  But most of all thanks to the  entertainers...all I can say in  one short phrase is "You are the  Greatest", so "On with the  Show!".  There were strange things  that happened while putting the  show together, like asking people  who I knew had talent, but  wouldn't do a talent show because they considered themselves  professional...then I had professional entertainers say they  would gladly participate because  they believe in community spirit.  Thanks to Peter Trower, Ken  Dalgleish, and Reg Dickson.  Then there's a surprise thanks  to those that came to see the  show. The surprise is because  it was "free for all" and yet the  apathy, lack of realization, perhaps just being boobed-toobed-  out, the theatre wasn't full,  which quite amazed me.  It was an excellent performance  with some tense moments,  like when the curtain rope snapped, but thanks to Ray Boothroyd , the show carried on.  This peninsula has more than  its share of talent, so let's back  it up by participation.  Remember when talent shows  were one of the few means of  expression we had. If you went  to a park, theatre, or school  auditorium, there you saw folks  performing their best to enter-  v. tain all, or perhaps you were  waiting in the wings for your  turn, with your stomach doing  butterflies, then that magic  moment when you just gave your  all. "Those were the days my  friend, we thought they'd never  end, we'll sing and dance forever  and a day."  Love & Peace  Stella Mutch  Note:    Thanks Stella.  And again  Editor:  Through your paper I would  like to thank O.A.P. Branch #38  President Jim Holt for the lovely  write up that you so kindly put  in the Coast News about me.  In reading it I thought for sure  that there must be someone else  by that name. I also would like  to thank all my dear friends at  the carpet bowling for the lovely  gift and kindness, and the Lions  Club for all the nice things that  they have done for us.  Thanks again for allowing me  to become part of you, God Bless.  Louise Barnes  Editor:  On May 7th I was the convener  of a benefit dance at the Roberts  Creek Hall for the Community  Resource Society. The evening  was a success and I would like  to thank a few kind people who  gave their time and donations.  Louis of the Red & White Store  in Sechelt, and Frank of the Shop  Easy in Sechelt both donated food  for our dinner, we thank you both  very sincerely.  The children of Grade 2 Roberts Creek Elementary School,  under the very artistic direction  of Mrs. delos Santos, make all  the decorations for the hall,  thank you children, they were  really lovely.  One other special thank you -  goes to John Patula of the Homestead, John took time out from a  busy Saturday and cooked our  turkeys for the dinner, it is extremely heartwarming to know  there are some folk who are  always ready to give their time  to a worthy cause.  One thing bothered me considerably. ~ There were a few  people who did not feel it was  worth paying $4.00 to go to a  dance, listen to a talented group  of musicians, and enjoy a good  meal. These few people actually  printed their own tickets, they  came to the dance with their  phony tickets, and ate food that  the other people had paid for.  I hope that those that were responsible for such a contemptable  act are not permanent residents  of this community, indeed I  hope that one Jay very soon they  will thumb their way out of our  neighbourhood altogether.  I had made a promise to the  fire marshall that I would limit  the number of people in the hall  that evening to 200, because of  a certain group I was not able to  keep my promise. If this type of  thing is allowed to go by un-  mentioned, then the hall at  Roberts Creek will not be allowed  to be rented by charitable organizations and that would be a  shame, it is a good hall in a good  location.  However to all those within  the Society and those who just  like to be helpful, my most grateful and sincere thanks.  Mrs. Maureen Kirby  Editor:  In your issue of May 10 you  printed a letter of mine regarding  the impending 'ferry strike.  (Incidentally, part of tiie second  paragraph of that letter was  omitted, which made nonsense of  the part that was printed, but  no matter!) After the paper came  out, I received a telephone call  from one of the officers of the  ferry service, who told me that I  did not have all the facts as to  what the dispute was about. It  is not merely a contract but hours  of work and other matters that  should be clearly defined so that  a man may know where he stands  in relation to his work. He also  said that the negotiators were up  against a stone wall on the other  side, and asked me what other  recourse I could see to break the  deadlock. While my opinions of  Unions and Strikes is the same,  I felt it was only fair to write this  letter to present their position.  Of course, I might have told  him that if he wanted to find out  about unfairness and frustration,  he should be a woman working in  the business world. For years I  was a bookkeeper-cashier in retail businesses, handling invoices, sending out accounts, doing  the banking, and generally wrapping up the end result of the work  of the rest of the staff. One of my  duties was making up the payroll, and how it annoyed and  frustrated me, for the paycheck of  the deliveryman was more than  double mine, yet he could have  been replaced by any man who  could drive a truck, while my  work called for a special expertise. But because he was a man  he received a far higher rate of  pay. When I once mentioned this  I was told that most men had  families to support and needed  more money. Oh yes, Mr. Ferry  Officer, women can tell you all  about stone walls and injustice.  Understanding and sympathizing with the ferry officers still  does not make a strike and the  cutting of our highways any more  acceptable, but if I hurt any  feelings I am sorry. ���X'X'.'"~>"\  -     E.East  Walking for fitness  by Soaan Mi-burn, Fitness  Co-ofdlnator  The Fitness Service is now  planning a WAMM WALK for  June 2nd, 3rd, and 4th. WAMM  stands for Walk a Measured  Mile. Our aim is to create an  individual awareness of the need  for physical activity and show  that there exists a facility available and accessible to all, regardless of age, sex or means:  the out-of-doors.  There is a real need to market  the idea of positive health through physical activity. The evidence is in: most Canadians  don't meet even minimal standards of fitness, and there is no  question about the link between  this and the current epidemic  of cardiovascular disease. Good  health is more than just and absence of fitness: it's a positive  state of body and mind.  We hope to motivate citizens  to increase their degree of participation in activity of a physical  Seriously, rex, this  doo   situation t$  OUr   OF CONTROL/  nature to "get off their seat and  on their feet".  We hope to involve as many  individuals and groups as possible in a voluntery, readily  accessible, three day, novelty-  type physical activity event.  And, we hope to draw attention  to the fact that there is a definite  relationship between physiological well-being Qiealth) and physical activity.  In order to obtain the response  we are after we.are going to utilize all the promotional techniques we can. For instance,  newspapers, cablevision, channel  six news (hopefully), posters, and  personal contact. However from  past experience we have learned  that even with all these techniques people still either do not  hear and/or do not know whether  this includes them.  a  Therefore we are staging a  celebrity walk one week prior  to the actual WAMM WALK.  In Sechelt it will be May 25th at  6:00 and in Gibsons May 26th  at 6:00. Mayors Nelson and  Labonte have already agreed to  start off the walk in their respec-'  five areas.  We would like to know if you  will also participate. It will simply involve walking one measured  mile. We hope to have good  press coverage so that people will  realize the simplicity and fun of  such an event.  If you will join the group  phone 885-3611 and let us know.  Also if you have any other ideas  on how we can promote our  WAMM WALK we'd be happy to  hear them.  No running.  7 No walking.  No exercise.  No effort.  Penalty ���  a shorter life.  No argument.

Ministry ������of Labour to  fund Recreation jobs  A summer Recreation Program  for students living on the Sechelt  Peninsula has been funded by the  Ministry of Labour. Five positions have been made available  under the Youth Employment  Program and the Sunshine Community Resource Society who  sponsors the program is asking  for applications from young  people in the age group of 15 -  24, to carry out the program in  Pender Harbour, Sechelt and  Gibsons.  In order to qualify the person  must be unemployed or a student  and applicants who either live on  the peninsula or have their home  here, will receive preference.  Only in case the positions cannot  be filled locally, will applicants  from outside the peninsula be  considered. 7 7'   ]  The Summer Recreation - Program  is designed  for students  looking for fun-filled activities  during the summer break. It  is mainly an outdoor program  with emphasis on physical activities such as tennis, baseball,  basketball, soccer, hiking, biking,  dancing, gymnastics, trips to  other areas, canoeing, etc. The  youth workers will plan the program together with the students,  and only their imaginations and  pocketbooks will set the limit for  the happenings during the two  summer months.  The distribution of youth workers will take place in co-operation with the Wilson Creek Community Association.

The unemployment statistics  issued yesterday paint an increasingly desperate portrait of hardship in British Columbia.  While actual unemployment  declined slightly in the whole of  Canada, it increased in British  Columbia. While business elsewhere in the coutnry reports  slow recovery, the bankruptcy  rate continues to accelerate in  our province: Statistics Canada  this week reports that department  store sales in the past year  showed healthy increases in all  provinces except British Columbia, where it rose barely three-  tenths of one per cent in a period  of serious inflation.  ��� ��� ���  Statistics Canada now has reported that last month's increase  in the number of British Columbians without jobs has reached  109,000. The actual unemployment rate jumped for 9:3 to 9.5%  while dropping 4 points to 8.8%  in Canada as a whole.  This is absolutely scandalous.  Economists for months, because  of the expanding international  trade, have been predicting that  British Columbia, to quote the  Conference Board of Canada last  month, is the only province in  the whole country that has the  potential to "generate sufficient  new jobs to absorb labour force  entrants".   ���  Yet now we find that while  that prestigious research organization was lauding B. C.'s eco  nomic prospectus, a further 3,000  British Columbians were thrown  out of work during the month.  And that's not the worst of it.  The Statistics Canada figures do  not yet reflect the 600 jobs cut;  out of the Public Works Depart-  ment or the 500 jobs lost by  arbitrarily halting the Dease Lake  extension of the B.C.R. But  those government decisions will  be felt soon enough by the entire;  economy.  Such mismanagement of our-  economy will add further distress,  to the harsh and unnecessary!  increases in ICBC rates, ferry;  rates, sales tax and other levies!  dictated by this insensitive J  government.

A lot of people believe to  keep aquarium fish all you need is  water and fish. Not so. First of  all you must know what minerals  are present and whether your  water is acid or alkaline. Then  you must find out whether the  type of fish you have is suited to  that type of water.  First of all I will speak of  pH or the hydrogen ion concentration present in your water.  The neutral point of an aquarium  is the number 7, anything less  than 7 is an acid range anything  above is in the alkaline range.  The common pH test kit consists  of a bottle of bromthymol blue, a  test tube and a color chart. These  kits are inexpensive and are an  absolute must to the average  hobbyist. The best point to keep  your water at is 7 or neutral,  and always avoid letting your  water go heavy into either the  acid or alkaline state. Should  you notice your water is not close  to neutral you can adjust it by  using sodium bicarbonate to  make it more more towards the  alkaline side or sodium biphos-  phate to move it closer to the acid  side. Never adjust your water  more than 2 points while fish are  . in it or you may get very sick  fish. The common aquarium fish  are usually tolerant to most of  our local water as regarding pH.  The next problem is DH or  degree of hardness of your water.  This need not concern the average hobbyist as most fish are  quite adaptable to water hardness  unless it is extreme. When we  talk about water hardness we are  referring to the amount of dissolved salts in the water. Kits  can be bought for checking water  hardness, they usually run between ten to twenty dollars.  Some kits consist of chemical  solutions  and  others  use   soap  solutions to check the hardness.  If you decide you wish to raise  discus or one of the more exotic  tropicals a pH test kit is almost a  must.  One problem that has arisen  lately in some homes with aquariums is the problem of mysterious and absolute death to all  fish in the aquariums. This has  puzzled myself and a few of the  people I have asked about this,  until very recently. As Ian mentioned last week there is a saltlike substance called startrite  which when made into the proper  solution can be added directly  to the aquarium. This removes  a lot of the harmful nitrogens,  copper salts, and chlorine that  could be present in the modern  day waters. If you are having  this complaint contact either Ian  or myself and we can put you in  touch with the people that handle  Startrite.  by Fred Napora  At what point in life does one  become old? When do we stop  saying "you're not getting older,  you're simply getting better"?  When do we start saying "He/  she is too old"? The senior citizens in our familes are ourselves  in the future. The love, accept-  the future. The love, acceptance and consideration they enjoy now may be a mirror in which  we see the love, acceptance and  consideration we will enjoy in  that 'senior citizen' future of  ours. The first seniors in our  lives are our parents, and the  first commandment of God with  promise, is "Honour your father  and mother...that it may be well  with you". When Jesus hung on  the cross He showed His concern  for His senior citizen mother by  committing her to the care and  love of His friend John.  Our social stucture has changed in recent years, and often  Dogwood Takeout  parents live many miles from  their grown children. We tend  to excuse ourselves for our lack  of care with the excuse we are  too far away to help. A rewarding  experiment is to adopt some  elderly person who lives close at  hand, do for them what we cannot  do for our own. We can adopt a  grandmother, grandfather, aunt  or uncle, and enjoy their reminiscences and experiences. Often  their experiences can encourage  us. It is nice to have the companionship of someone who has  travelled the road you are on.  Our children are often robbed  of the learning experiences found  in grandparents. They grow up  not knowing any elderly personally. What we don't know and understand, we tend to fear, and  when we fear we are usually resistant, aggressive, and in our  human relationships, downright  rude. We should remember  and our children should be  taught that we and they will be  By Teny Karkabe  The last time I contributed to  this column there was a question  at the end concerning what the  bears thought of all this hustle  and bustle in Beautiful Downtown  Gibsons. Well the thought  stayed with me and about a week  and a half later it happened that  I found myself sitting next to a  youngish and good looking bear  on the Wonderland Express,  which as you all know is a direct  route from the base of Knob Hill  to the front gate of the village  dump.  Being an enterprising type and  in need of a worthy subject for  this column, I took advantage of  this marvelous opportunity for  a personal interview, and forthwith introduced myself to said  bruin who turned out to have the  unlikely name of Leopold Brunski  Esq. (Poly for short).  Me:   Well Poly, the purpose of  this interview is to discover how  you  and yours feel  about this  flurry of summer visitors after  a long, cold winter.  Poly:  (in a gruff voice)  First off  let me say how pleased I am for  the opportunity to speak my mind  on this particular subject.    My  uncle Baron and I were discussing  it not two days ago, and frankly  we're a little upset about all this  tourist foolishness.   It's all right  for you humans to want to get  ahead and we'd be the last to  deny you the pleasures involved  in the pursuit of your personal  happiness but don't  you  think  you could sort of ask those cubs  of yours to be a little more considerate of other  peoples  feelings; I mean there I was at the  lake just the other day, minding  my own business, and all of a  sudden there's this incredible  racket from the bushes not twenty  feet away. Just about scared me  out of my breakfast, let me tell  you. I went over to have me a  quick peek and just as I stuck my  nose through the bushes I got a  face full of dirt from one of them  funny bicycles with a chain saw  hooked on to it an' off goes this  cub making a whale of a noise all  over my nice, quiet morning. It's  depressing you know. My family's had that bit of woods to ourselves for a long time but like  uncle Baron says, maybe it's  time for us to move to Lund.  WeU the interview lasted a  while longer and I won't bore  you with details but it seems to  me that these folks have a point.  After all I kinda like the Wonderland Express myself.

Mrs. Marlene Danroth and her  Gibsons neighbours had the huge  task of preparing this mailing on  behalf of the Sechelt and District  Association for Retarded Children, a branch of provincial and  Canadian associations.  This is national week for the  mentally retarded. It is a time  when we focus on the tremendous  advances these Canadians can  make with a little help from their  friends. Your support is making  schools, workshops, residences  and recreation programmes available so that mentally retarded  people can be part of their community. Your contribution helps  thousands of associations across  Canada to actively engage in  prevention, childhood training,  community residential arrangements, workshops, job training,  and  employment  for  disadvantaged people.  In B. C. there are 65 Achievement Centres promoting a fascinating and challenging programme. The objective of this  recently instituted movement is  to train less-chance individuals  to become self-sustaining. The  national trend is to integrate  and maintain retarded people in"  their home communities. In the  1950's, parents struggled to get  their retarded children any education at all. For generations the  retarded were not admitted to  schools, but then it was discovered that most retarded people  could learn to read and write,  and that four out of five could be  trained to live productive,  ful  filling lives. A start has been  made in the closing of a well-  recognized gap between normal  and retarded people, but we still  have a long road ahead.  Here in the Sechelt Peninsula  already a programme is underway  on Saturdays in the Elphinstone  School where young men learn  woodworking and motor mechanics, and girls are tutored in  needle-work. Other crafts will  be taught. It is planned that this  endeavor will expand into a local  Achievement Centre. The Achievement Centre crusade in Canada  has been applauded for its habi-  litation successes and for the  advent of a new hope for trainees.

With this in mind,  we ought early to prepare ourselves for more than retirement  and the old age pension at 65.  We can even now build into our  lives those qualities that make  some elderly people welcome  anywhere, anytime, with any age  group.

The  only way I know to become the  kind of senior everybody enjoys;  the only way to enjoy the senior  of your family or neighbourhood,  is through Jesus Christ. John  3:16 says "For God so loved the  world - (the young, the middle-  aged and the old) that He gave  His only begotten Son that whosoever believes in Him should not  perish, but have everlasting  LIFE". Too simple you say?  It is usually the simple things  that work.  Nutrition  QUESTION: I've hear that yoghurt is better for me than milk  and is ideal for dieting because  it is a self-contained meal. Is  this true?  ANSWER: Comparatively speaking, yoghurt and milk have similar  nutritional   value,   although  yoghurt often costs three times  as much as.an equal volume of  milk.     While  plain  yoghurt  is  a  good,  low  calorie   substitute,  for sour cream in recipes, any  yoghurt is simply a milk that you  eat with a spoon and like milk,  is NOT a complete meal.  QUESTION:    What is Brewer's  yeast?  ANSWER: Brewer's yeast or  nutritional yeast is a non-leavening yeast grown for human consumption containing protein and  B vitamins. It comes in powder,  flake and pill form. The powder  is more concentrated and it can  be added in small amounts to  breads, soups, stews and meat  loaves. It should be stored in a  tighly covered jar away from  light. Don't confuse Brewer's  yeast with baking yeast. Baking  yeast is a live substance that may  continue to grow in the intestines  with deleterious, results if it is .  eaten raw.

SERVING THE SUNSHINE COAST  MODERATE COST LOCAL OR DISTANT BURIALS  CREMATIONS - MEMORIALS- PREARRANGEMENTS  D. A. Devlin  Director  886-9551  1665 Seaview  Gibsons  i, # CBC Radio  Coast News, May 17,1977.  Discovering the Blues  I think my love-affair with the'  blues, must have consciously begun around 1947. In.that year,  I attended a rather odd private-  school in North Vancouver. The  peculiarities of this place and the  people who ran it, constitute  another story, too lengthy and  complex to go into here. Suffice  to say that the institution contained a common-room and in the  common-room, an early electric  gramophone. Of the few records  that were kicking around the  place, most were blues of a deri-.  vative sort. I mean, they weren't  exactly roots music. Stuff like  The Chamber Music Society of  Lower Basin Street featuring  Lena Home and Dinah Shore  doing polite versions of Beale  Street Blues, Aunt Hagar's  Blues, etc. The ladies didn't  get down a whole lot but at  least they sang the authentic  words. On a considerably better  level was Anita O'Day with Gene  Krupa singing Boogie Blues and  Let Me Off Uptown. These  tracks don't stand up badly today  and Miss O'Day remains one of  the best jazz and blues singers  around.  Well, the school and I parted  company under somewhat questionable circumstances (frankly,  I was expelled for staying out  overnight without permission -  again, another story). But I  carried those basic blues licks  away with me in my mind. After  a year back in the country, serenaded by wall-to-wall western  music and the Hit-Parade, we  moved to Vancouver and the  blues began for me for real.  It was the zoot-suit era; the  kisses-in-the-whiskey days.  Frankie Laine was just emerging  from obscurity at this time and  he brought a blues-influenced  and black-inflected style to white  popular music. He did songs like  Shine and Black and Blue which  hitherto had been performed only  by black singers. (Until the first  articles and pictures began to  appear on him, we believed he  Page s f rdm ��� ^yfet"�� e�� Log  :Beter\ Trowel  was black.) In 1948, we saw him  in person at the old Palomar  Supper Club. The guy could  swing in those days and unlike  the limp Comos and Sinatras,  Laine moved around a lot on  stage. He was a great showman  and we were suitably impressed.  In later years, Laine abandoned  his jazz-singing to concentrate  on schmaltz and novelty songs  but back then, he sang a lot of  blues and still had integrity.  I guess it was Deke who first  -took us down to the Stratford  Grill off Main Street. Deke, a  gangly redhead, played drums  and knew a lot of black jazz-  musicians. He introduced us  to cats in shades and berets  called BeBop and Little Joe from  Kokomo. Most of them doubled  as waiters on the trains. There  weren't many spots where black  jazz-men could work around Vancouver in those times. The Stratford, which catered to a primarily  black clientele, had a jukebox  which was a goldmine of obscure  'race' records as Rhythm and  Blues was then bigotedly designated in the catalogues. They  were generally on obscure Southern labels. They featured artists  like Wyonnie Harris, T-Bone  Walker, Earl Bostic and other  performers little known to white  audiences. The songs were raw  and raunchy with titles like Bow-  legged Woman and They Raided  The Joint. It was our first exposure to the gut and gutter-level  urban blues that the blacks themselves listened to, a far cry from  Dinah Shore and Lena Home.  Curiously enough, the only non-  negro performer on the jukebox  was Frankie Laine. I guess they  hadn't twigged he was a white-  man as yet.  The selfsame Deke was also responsible for my first experience  with live black music. One weekend, when I was without "a date  and at loose-ends, he invited me  down to check out a place called  the New Orleans Club, a decades-  defunct spot in a side-street off  upper Granville. This was an  exclusively-black cabaret, patronized-by an older crowd than the  Stratford Grill. They were mostly  middle-aged and their taste ran  to earlier forms of the same  idiom. But it was still very much  the blues. A small combo - piano,  bass and drums - provided the  music. The vocals were supplied  by an enormous woman who  belted them out loud and soulful  in the manner of Bessie Smith.  "Gimmee a pigfoot and a bottle  of beer" she demanded, shaking  her capacious girth like a mountain in motion. Who would dare  refuse her? I was quite transfixed by her performance. I was  also slightly nervous since Deke  and I were the only whites in  the place. But it was before the  advent of militancy and they  treated us with tolerant good  humour. Later Deke talked  the drummer into letting him sit  in and played a couple of numbers. It was another step in my  education.  These were my first contacts  with the authentic and near-  authentic article. It was a vintage-period in many ways. The  Palomar Club was booking in a  succession of big-name acts,  many of them . blues-oriented.  Louis Armstrong and Jack Tea-  garden were touring together  then and I can still see and hear  them trading choruses of Rocking  Chair and Back of Town Blues.  Legends on the hoof at the peak  of their talents, evoking New  Orleans, Chicago, old jazz dreams  enough to make you cry.  And I saw Louis Jordan, that  The Hawkline Monster  Richard Brautigan  Simon   & Schuster  188pp.  The subtitle of this novel is  "A Gothic Western", a fairly  good description of the book,  which is a mixture of sex, violence, gunslingers and a creepy old  house on the edge of nowhere.  Brautigan writes so casually  thai. at times his prose almost  falls asleep. The events he describes, the characters he chooses  and the plot he contrives are all  so offhanded that one feels he has  almost chosen them at random.  This time we bump into, almost  by coincidence, the two . hired  killers, who, if this were an ordinary novel, would be the heroes  of the piece. Cameron and Greer  are a slouch-faced pair of good old  boys, with a trunk full of guns.  They go around shooting people  for money, and then spend the  money in whorehouses. It is in  one such establishment that  they are found by a beautiful  Indian girl named Magic Child,  who wants to hire them for an  especially tricky job - the destruction of the Hawkline Monster.  Then it turns out that Magic  Child is not Indian, but one of  the Hawkline sisters. The other  sister lives with her in their old  Victorian house filled with secret  passages, an oversized demented  butler, an elephant foot umbrella  stand that later turns out to be  the girls father, and The Chemicals, a nasty batch of scientific  leftovers that want to rule the  world. Brautigan writes in the  first few pages that: "...Greer  and  Cameron were  very  self-  Books with  John  Faustmann  assured in that big relaxed casual  kind of way that makes people  nervous." So it comes as no  surprise that boys bed down with  the Hawkline sisters, save the  butler from premature burial,  and rescue daddy from his thrall-  dom as an umbrella stand before  the book manages to creak to a  halt.' The latest of Brautigan's  fairy tales for the subculture,  this laid-back thriller is quite  well done. His easy prose is  always enjoyable, and his random  improbabilities are always full of  fun.  Sometimes I Think of Moving  Elizabeth Brewster  Oberon Press  123pp.  After the teacups then, in  another afternoon. Perhaps the  sunlight has weakened just a bit,  out in the yard. Elizabeth brushes the crumbs from her lap, from  her comfortable tweed skirt, and  rises to go out. Matrimonial  cake is always so messy. Elizabeth Brewster in sensible shoes,  covers the sidewalks in Saskatoon. Her days are the colour of  autumn, her poems as thin as  the veins on a brilliant, dying  leaf.  Picturing her, now in her  fifties, with her teaching job at  the university, one sees first the  shell of the woman, thinking her  hair must be done in a bun, her  glasses clipped to her sweater.  But reading this book, the shell  falls away, revealing' a very  bright, intent and caring woman.  The simple, clear use of her  words ends up to be so revealing  that it almost causes us to he em  barrassed for her. It's as if we've  been allowed to see too much, or  been told secrets we shouldn't  have heard. She describes herself on one Sunday Morning:  "I feel/ sloppy and shapeless as  an old housecoat/ and I get up  late/ and pad about the apartment/ in greying terry slippers./  I have not bothered to shave my  legs./ Joylessly', I do bending  excercises/ attempt/ Mind/ can  no longer do handsprings/ (and  never could either/ I tell myself)/  Is it too late/ after all/for the  necessary conversion/ which was  to have changed my life?/ Could  I still not become/ beautiful/ as  a lady on television/ with come-  hither eyelashes/ (First lose ten  pounds)/ or become so liberated/  that beauty is unnecessary?''  From little things this woman  builds her fine old house of  words. Small epiphanies cluster  to form poems. Faces flow by.  The living are celebrated, and the  dead mourned. Walks are'taken  past immigrant houses, past  stands selling "Kiss me-I'm  Ukrainian" shirts, past picnickers  in the grassy parks. And the  homecomings are had, when  empty rooms stretch out their  arms to a solitary lady. In words  spoken softly she writes of  these days. Her voice seems so  delicate. And yet her concerns  are so strong and alive. Whole  taut lives are. lived in these  poems, passion rubs them bright  with use. Elizabeth Brewster  explores that wrinkle between  one moment and another, and  finds there a live, keen world.  Making A Killing  Ernie Regehr  McClelland & Stewart  135 pp.  Canada, Mr. Regehr asserts,  is the sixth largest manufacturer  of weapons in the world. We sell  over $300 million worth of lasers,  great and humourous performer  who brought his band through the  bias-barrier long before it became  fashionable. He was certainly  one of the precursors of rock and  roll, bringing black, backbeat  boogie into the mainstream and  even on to the prissy. Hit-Parade.  I recall him as wearing an outrageous orange zoot-suit and  growling a good down-and-dirty  saxaphone between vocals. He  has become sadly, a half-forgotten name but his great hits like  Saturday Night Fish-Fry and Outskirts of Town will ring in my  mind forever.  I also saw Gene Krupa at a  wild concert at the Hastings  Auditorium when all the zoot-  suit gangs turned out in full,  hoodlum plumage to pay him  homage. Unfortunately, by this  time, Krupa no longer had Anita  O'Day with'him and was flirting  with BeBop, another .kettle of  jazz altogether. His was a curious  mixture of Swing and Avant  Garde music that- didn't really  jell. Bop was great if it was done  right but you needed Charlie  Parker or Dizzy Gillespie. Still,  Krupa could still lay down impossible drum-riffs .on the right  numbers and make the crowd  rave and jive in their gangster  finery.  They were strange, halcyon  times, those confused and cooking years of the late Forties.'  But they instilled in me, a full-  tilt love of the blues that has  never left me. Of course, it all  burgeoned on through the Fifties, Sixties and Seventies - Bill  Haley, to Presley to Ray Charles,  to Beatles to Dylan to Janis Jop-  lin to Tom Waits. There is no  room to cite the many great  names of rock, jazz-rock and all  the other spinoff forms. But the  pure blues underpin and Under-*  score it all and are the source.  by Maryanne West  CBC and the Canada Council  offer $26,000 in prize money in  the third young composers competition.

To teach her a lesson or two, pirate captain Red Ned Lynch  (ROBERT SHAW) duels with high-spirited Jane Barnet  (GENEVIEVE BUJOLD) in Universal's "Swashbuckler." Polonski  (AVERY SCHREIBER) and other pirates look on as their ship.  The Blarney Cock, waits in the bay.  A bit of everything  ��� Far-out farce,<s blood-curdling  terror, and swashbuckling piratical romance are all on' the menu  at the Twilight Theatre this week.  The farce comes from the  studios of the Disney Corporation. It's called Freaky Friday  and will play at the Twilight for  general audiences from Thursday  through Saturday, May 19th -  21st. The Disney film concerns  a 13-year old girl, played by Jody  Foster, whose wish that she could  change places with her mother  comes unexpectedly true, to the  consternation of all. Well-known  television comediennes Patsy  Kelly, Kaye Ballard and Ruth  Buzzi also appear in the film.  Barbara Harris plays the supplanted mother with John Astin  as the unintentionally chauvinistic father. In addition to three  showings at the regular 8:00  p.m. time, there will be a Saturday Matinee showing at 2:00 p.m.  The pirate movie Swashbuckler  stars British actor Robert Shaw  whose last leading role was as  the crusty shark killer in "Jaws".  The film marks Shaw's first opportunity in films to play a ro  mantic role. Usually in he past  he has been cast in roles which  required him to come to a violent  end and he enjoyed the new  experience. "I loved it," said  Shaw. "I was brought up on the  old pirate movies. Swashbuckler  is a return to the type of movies  that packed movie houses all over  the world. It has a certain savage  energy, but it is also a romantic  love story, with humour and  joy."  The female lead in the film is  Canadian actress Genevieve  Bujold, and other stars are James  Earl Jones, Peter Boyle, and  Beau Bridges. The film will  play at the Twilight Sunday  through Tuesday, May 22nd to  24th.     .

We got started in  the business just after the Second  World War. At that time Canada  had an agreement with the U.S.  for a mutual exchange of weapons  technology. This agreement continued and expanded with  NORAD and the DEW line, and  today we've achieved competitive  status in the world arms market.  Successive Prime Ministers, ;  Pearson and Trudeau, although  ciriticized by the opposition for  Canada's role as gun-runner to  the world, defended this policy  as integral to the Canadian economy. Mr. Regehr, who writes  for the Mennonite Central Committee, disagrees with the whole  idea. This book, which relies  heavily on research done by McGill University's "Project Anti-  War" group, delineates the scope  of the. industry, and wonders  aloud about its existence. It  notes that the federal government  subsidizes the industry heavily,  that it provides millions for re-  seach. It lists the universities  presently engaged in military re-  seach for the American defense  establishment. It mentions the  government arms salesmen paid  for by our taxes, and it even  quotes from the Canadian Defense Products Catalogue, a macabre  counterpart to the Sears Christmas Wish Book. Here are two  nice items we presently have on  the market: "Mine Anti-Personnel Non-Metallic C3A1 (M25)".  "...The mines are olive drab, and  are designed with integral camouflage material. Emplaced mines,  after removal of safety clip, are  operationally undetectable with  conventional electro-magnetic  detection equipment."

The bands were  the Elphinstone Secondary School  Band and the Gibsons Elementary School Band, both under,the  leadership of music instructor  Mel Campbell.  The secondary school band,  competing with bands from the  Fraser Valley and the States, had  only 20 musicians as opposed to  some ofthe entrants who had 100  pieces. Notwithstanding the  severe limitation thus imposed  the Elphinstone Band placed 4th  in overall competition with a score  of seventy-nine out of one hundred. The adjudicator specifically  mentioned the small number as  a reason for the band not placing  higher. The showing is especially  commendable when it is realized  that % of the members of the  Elphinstone Band are not taking  band at the present time and  practised in their own time for  the competition.  The showing of the Gibsons'.  Elementary Band was no less impressive.    Again the band was  much smaller than its competition  with  only  seventeen  members.  Some of the competing bands in  the elementary school competition had as many as ninety members but the local youngsters  succeeded in placing second in  the competition with a score of  eighty-seven out of one hundred,  missing first place by a single  point.

APPROVED AUTO  REPAIR SERVICES  <?:^  886-7919^  Harmony Hall happenings  by Jim Holt  Here it is Friday 13th so you  can expect anything to happen to  this column today. First of all I  wish to apologise to Louise  Barnes for not attending her  going away party at the carpet  bowling last Wednesday, but circumstances beyond my control  would not permit me to get over  to the hall. Eva Oliver's car went  on the fritz so I took her up. to the  hospital to visit Dick who is  coming along very well and is expected to come home this Sunday. I also took Eva up again  yesterday so it has kept me quite  busy, what with trying to keep up  with the gardening, the utility  shed and various other committments I have, so you can see I  am not sitting around twiddling  my fingers.  I would like to thank Tor Strand  and Vic Eckstein for the job they  have done on the utility shed,  Vic and myself just got the tar  and rolled roofing on in time, as  about V_ hour after we got it on  it started to rain. All that has got  to be done now is the door to be  hung and we are waiting for the  tracks for that, after which the  siding and painting to be done  and we will be all set. We will  be glad to see the new mower  down here as the hay is getting  quite long.  I have nothing very much to  report this time only the "Royal  Hudson" trip to Squamish on  Thursday June 2nd for further  information on this trip contact  Vi Lynds at 886-7428 and Vi will  be able to give you all the information on it. Don't forget to  bring in your suggestions for  any day trips to our next general  meeting which will be on Monday  June 6th at 2:00 p.m. so this will  be your last chance to make any  arrangements for daily bus trips.  . Mrs. Hilda Lee gave me a list  last meeting of a trip to Tilford  Gardens, Queen Elizabeth Park  and Van Dusen Gardens. I imagine all these places could be  taken in, in one day and we would  all be home again before dark,  so how about it folks, think it  over and bring your suggestions  to our meeting. Let us try and  make a bus load and do it up  right. We have a lot of new members who might be interested so  don't be afraid to speak up and  voice your opinion in these matters, in this way we will be able  to get to know each other better  and that is what it is all about.  You know the old saying "The  more we get together the happier  we will be", well let's prove it  and put these trips over. Our  travel co-ordinator will be only too  willing to help you out with any  problems you have, providing  they are not too extreme and  we'll gladly receive any suggestions you may have.  Don't forget the carpet bowling  next Wednesday at 1:00 p.m. also  the Squamish trip on June 2nd.  Oh, oh, maybe I should not have  mentioned that date as that is  the day Kay and I have our 40th  Wedding Anniversary, boy how  time flies! Well I guess I have  given you all the news for this  time so I will draw to a close.  I am sorry I don't have any more  information to pass on to you but  the. good weather is here now and  certain chores to be done so I  better go out and get them  done. Hope to see you all at  the carpet bowling on Wednesday.  Just received word from Vic  Eckstein that forty to forty-five  members from North Vancouver  and Lynn Valley will be paying us  a visit on Thursday, May 26th  around 1:30 p.m. so please;get  out and welcome these friends.  They will only be staying a short  while as they are returning to  Vancouver on the 2:45 ferry from  Langdale. We will transfer jour  carpet bowling* over to that date  so that we can have more members, out to greet our guests.  So please come out and let them  see that we are not a dead bunch  at Harmony #38.  Was also up to Sechelt again  today and Dick Oliver will defi-  nitly be coming home on Sunday.  He is beginning to look real good  and is again taking solid foods.  Was also in to Continental  Travel Agency and Mr. Ben informed Kay and I that he only had  five seats left on the bus to  Squamish on June 2nd so Kay  and I booked for the trip and that  leaves only three seats left.  He said that if he gets any more  he will put on another bus so  keep on booking, you can either  phone Vi Lynds or Continental  Travel at Sechelt 885-2910.  Please keep the following dates  in mind. Thursday May 26th,  visitors from Vancouver. June  2nd, Thursday, trip to Squamish  and June 6th, last regular meeting for this session.  Well this is all the news I  have for you to date so will close  by asking you all to come out on  May 26th to greet our friends  from North Vancouver. See you  at the carpet bowling next Wednesday, May 18th, until then,  "Adios Amigos".  Lockstead reports  Don Lockstead, N.D.P. Transportation critic, today proposed a  three-pronged crash program to  repair the economic damage  done coastal communities by recent ferry policy.  "The government's announcement indicating that there will  be fare reductions and service  improvements is belated recognition of how inept the Minister  responsible and the cabinet have  'beeh over the past year;-" Said  Mr. Lockstead.  ' 'But even now, it refuses to  act quickly and forcefully enough  to cure the situation. Vague suggestions of relief are not good  enough. We need immediate  and definite action on a crash  basis in three areas if the coastal  region's economy is to be revived  before it is too late," he said.  "First, we need blanket rate  cuts throughout the entire system. The fares for all passengers  should be cut in half, and the  rates for all vehicles should be  chopped at least 25% to stimulate  the economies of the Sunshine  Coast and Vancouver Island."  "The need for that decision  was demonstrated months ago,  and there is absolutely no justification for any further delay, on  the excuse that more study or  more    discussion    is    needed.  Second, the Northland Prince, or  a comparable vessel, should be  bought, leased or constructed,  and, along with the Queen of  Surrey, put into immediate interim service to communities  along the mid- and north coast  regions."  "The shore facilities exist for  accomodating those two ships,  and they are tied up, doing noth  ing at present, while our. com-  munites are in desperate need of  a restored service. The only  thing that has to be done to overcome this problem, is eliminate  the government's stubborn  stupidity."  "Third, the government should  begin right now, developing a  permanent service for the coastal  communites by calling public  meetings in all coastal communities to get input for planning  purposes."  Mr. Lockstead emphasized that  clear and speedy action is needed  "because at this critical moment,  it is more important to save our  communites than to save face for  some bungler in cabinet.''  He added that while he. was  pleased that two new directors  have been appointed to the board  of the B. C. Ferry Corporation,  from northern Vancouver Island  and Prince Rupert, he was seriously disappointed that once again  the Sunshine Coast-Powell River  area is being passed over,, and  left without any representation  on what amounts to a transport  life-line.  -H-  BRITISH COLUMBIA  HYDRO & POWER  AUTHORITY  POWER  OUTAGE  WEATHER CONDITION PERMITTING,  ELECTRIC POWER WILL BE INTERRUPTED AS FOLLOWS:  WEDNESDAY  May 25,1977-from 9:00a.m. -12:00Noon.

N       ��*_  Hair-raising experience  by Ian Corrance  ,    While visiting a friend I overheard Donna (Donny) Drummond  j recounting her holiday experiences and it was so unusual that I  asked her if I could put it down in  vprint, she agreed.  r-. On March 23rd of .this year she  and her husband Jim went to  Palm Springs for their vacation.  They were with two friends from  Los Angeles, Homer and Coleen  Fowler   who   were   celebrating  their anniversary.     Donny  had  always wanted to ride the tramway to the top of Mr. San Jacinto  ~and this would be the ideal time,  ' they could have the anniversary  "dinner in the restaurant at the  ^op-  It was rather hastily arranged,  Jim not enjoying heights decided  "to lounge around the pool instead,  -'and Donny having already loun-  "ged around the pool had to run to  "the store and buy a wig as she  "had just been swimming and her,.,  'hair was wet.    . 7?   ''"���'  < In the valley when they set out  ! it was 99 degrees, 8,500 feet up  -the mountain it was 16 degrees  "(fahrenheit) and children  were  having snow ball fights. The tram  -ride was spectacular as well as  exciting, with high winds buffet-  [ ing the car, and gorges where  ''the sun never sees the bottom.  ��   When they got to the parking  'lot at the 2000 foot level, Donny  "'was walking back to the car when  rishe felt what seemed like some-  'fone pushing her from behind.  'The next thing she  knew  she  'was looking down at the top of  *rthe car, she looked around and  ^eould see other people spinning  through the air with her, the fur  coat she had been wearing  a  "few seconds before, flashed past  her vision and she called down to  her friends to grab it.    A high  wind had come up the gully and  lifted her off her feet.   It takes  Indian mystics years of concentration before they perfect astral  projection and there was Donny  doing it with no effort at all,  fortunately  it . didn't  last  very  long and she came down to earth  rather suddenly.   She was a bit  stunned when her friends helped  her up and asked them if they  were ready to go have dinner.  She had a nasty cut on her  head, so along with the other intrepid flyers,, she was carted off  to hospital. Her friends gave her  all the details while the doctor  gave her fourteen stitches;  they told her that she had been  blown close to the edge ofthe  cliff, it had been lucky that she  had not gone over, the good news  was that they had retrieved  her coat.  On the way out of the hospital  Donny passed a mirror, and for  the first time realised that her'  new wig and she had parted company.  Now she was in real trouble,  the doctor's ministrations were  very evident on the back of her  head and there would be no way  she would be able to get a new  jone. A:phone7crf7to &ej{IaIn:-'  ���?:way>.office got an initial "reaction'  of "Are you going to sue?".  When she assured them she  wasn't and just wanted-her wig  back, a search party set out.  Two hours later a car pulled  up at the door bearing the prize,  it had been found stuck to a  cactus at the very edge of the  cliff. A representative ofthe company assured her that this was  the first time this had happened  since their opening in 1963.  When Donna was asked if she  would go up again, she said,  "Sure I'd love to". But I doubt  if she'll talk Jim into going with  her.  urray's Garden  & Pet Supplies  STEER MANURE  1    7Q -**  886-2919     1./3  IGARDEN  ^P  GIBSONS  FISH MARKET  OPEN-  Tues.-Sat.  10:30-6:30  886-7888  Delicious home-made  style FISH & CHIPS  in Lower Gibsons  THE JEAN SHOP  Now has  Childrens Jeans  Sizes 4-16.

The diners,  having been served a fine repast,  at the Gibsons Winter Club  lounge, were presented with this  year's winners of the club's  awards.  The more serious presentations, directed by an elegantly  attired Mjanes, included the Most  Valuable Player Award to Mr.  Tom Blain; Most Valuable Forward Award to Mr. Jay Pomfrett;  Most Valuable Back Award to  Mr. Gerry Ferris; Rookie of the  Year Award to President-elect  Mjanes himself and Gary Gray.  Unsung Hero of the Year Award  to Messers. Geoffrey Madoc-  Jones and George Matthews.  The less formal side of the affair  was presided over by club secretary Mr. Bruce Gibson, exquisitely turned out in a grey three  piece suit and pink athletic undergarment.  The club's season, having  ended for the year, resumes next  August with club practices and a  tentative preseason match with  a team from -Powell River. Anyone interested in joining the club  is asked to contact President  Mjanes, Vice-president Jay  Pomfrett, Secretary Bruce Gibson or Treasurer John Spence.  W.P. Ferris (3-0). L. P. F.

Cross-Canada Counselling  Announcer. Translation    by  Manuane Laplante.  By now, there is no doubt left  in anyone's mind that Quebec's  political will to take in its own-  hands the French Canadian destiny in America is real. The  coming to power of the Parti  Quebecquois last November 15th  and all the events that have transpired since (like the language  bill and what it means for the  future), are certainly proof  enough.  All of this is not without shaking the rest of the country which  is starting to find out little by  little "What does Quebec want".  What's going on in Quebec?  How is it going to affect the rest  of Canada? "Are we going to let  this sin against history be committed?" to quote Pierre Elliot  Trudeau, only to satisfy the  nationalist ideas of the French  Canadians?  Let us leave the prophets alone  and push the agitated politicians  aside and let us try to reason this  situation.  If nationalism presents dangers  of intrasigence and of self-cen-  teredness - we could at least  define what it is and why it is  there.

R.G. Harvey  Deputy Minister  File 892-16  One does not choose to be a  nationalist as an. individual or as  a nation. One just has to in order  not to perish, in order not to  disappear as an ethnic entity.  The French Canadians have believed for a long time that they  were a part of the founding ethnic groups of the Canadian confederation. They certainly have  had a solid faith in this to believe  it for over a hundred years. Even  in Quebec where they are the  majority, a minority of English  Canadians have power by economic force. In the western part of  Montreal, it's hard to imagine  that one is living in the second  largest French city in the'world.  15 years ago, when Radio-Canada's studios were still in that part  of Montreal, we had to fight for  months in order to get French  menus in one of Murray's Restaurants even though we constituted  the greatest part of their customers. We did get the French  menus but only after threatening  that restaurant with boycott.  That speaks for itself on the  French situation even in Quebec.  One could say that times have  brought about changes. The  federal legislation on bilingualism  had a reassuring effect on Que-  beckers. Hereafter, the English  Canadians showed themselves  more understanding, more tolerant. Many French Canadians  believed that until last summer  when CALPA and CACTA -  the pilot's dispute fanaticism  blew up like a vicious bomb in  the Quebec sky.  French Canadian pilots dared  to demand some French for  ground-air communication in  Quebec's airports and they  wanted that only for security  reasons. They had no political  intention in mind.   They wanted  to fly in French as is done in  countries where French is one of  the official languages. Within a  few weeks, thousands of Quebec-  kers were proudly wearing pilot's  insignas and everyone got the  message: "There is prench in  the air".  In Quebec skies however, there  is also gunpowder. The pilots  organization was in the process  of becoming the national society  ofthe French Canadians. Strong  with Bourassa's political support,  the pilots fought and held their  stand and even gave Minister  Lang a hard time. Without suspecting it, the members of the  CALPA and the CATCA, by their  illegal strike and their uncompromising attitude, were becoming  benevolent workers of the Parti  Quebecquois. It is of Keith  Spicer opinion even, that they  were instrumental in getting  Rene Levesque at least 20 counties in the November 15th elections, the CALPA and the  CACTA had polarized the dispute just at the right moment.  Bourassa's government was  dying of insignificance and from  lack of leadership whereas Levesque's crew was progressively  gathering in its ranks some of  the greatest brains in Quebec.  Their leader's credibility,, his  dynamism and magnetism took  care of the rest. Quebeckers  had understood that they couldn't  take their destiny in their own  hands without engendering a  strong political motion that would  change history. .Forced to define  themselves or disappear forever,  they chose to survive. They did  not choose nationalism. Events  forced them to do so. All they  needed was their native land  according to their proud concept  of such a land, thus they could  Local teachers Miss Lindsay, Miss Swan, and Mrs. Birkin recently organized the Grade 4;  and 5 students at Gibsons Elementary School in a 'Trashathon'.  The children found spon-r  sors who would offer them financial recognition for their work in clearing litter from the:  Gibsons streets.

Pierre Perrault, one of Quebec's  best moviemakers, directed a  film that justifies well the title  he gave it: "Vn pays sans bon  sens" A country without good  sense. We live in a country that  called itself a confederation. The  French Cartesianism does not go  along with a reality that is other  than what the words mean: You  have to bring order into the words  before you can bring order into  a kingdom, says Confucius. That  does not mean that the Quebeckers will build a wall of China  around the province.

They do  not want to force aiyone into  bilingualism. They want a French  Quebec, where English will b<  spoken as one of the essentia  languages of communication and  of a neighbouring culture. They  don't have any choice about that.  Socio-linguists have proven time  and time again that ultimately  bilingualism in a country, leads  to unilingualism of the dominant  tongue. It happens all the time  in Canadian provinces where  French Canadians are in minority. It's happening in Quebec  and along the Ontario border.  Even in Montreal where French  passes through "hossie" to end  up in English. As a cross-Canada  counselling announcer, I find that  anytime young people are passing  an audition, if they are bilingual,  they are generally more so in  English.  My own grandchildren of  Roberts Creek, born in B; C,  don't -speak French. One of my  sons teaches sciences in a bilingual school in Saskatoon,  another is doing his doctorate at  Toronto University. One is married to a girl of German-English  descent in Saskatchewan, the  other to an English girl from  Quebec. Both speak French. I  don't ask them to think French  about Quebec as I do. I ask them  to try to understand, and that,  they have done. They understand  that a Quebec that wants to stay  French has to take steps to ensure  while there is still time, that it  will stay French.  Our fathers have been surveying this country for a  long  time. La Verendrye discovered  the Rockies. La Salle, Joliette  and Marquette have explored the  Mississippi all the way to Louisia-  nna. There is not a province  or a state of North America that  does not bear a mark of their  passage. Before French and  English verbs were heard upon  this land, Ameridian was the language of communication between  tribes and people. Not so strong  now but still with us, it does hot  want to die. It's the same with  Quebeckers. Our tongue and our  culture is only a small island jn  this Anglo-American sea but we  can feel its roots right down ;tb  the bottom of the ocean and we  don't want to lose them. Quebec  is not going to be a melting pot.  Ethnic cultures will be encouraged and respected.  The minister of education announced recently that both Italian and Greek  courses will be  offered  in  the  schools.  This will give the children in Quebec a chance to learn  . a third language if they so desire.  And why not teach Spanish  in our schools? It is a Latin tongue like ours spoken by more than  500     million     Latin-Americans  living in a continent that is becoming aware of its power and  wants to be respected. - They are  not a threat to the Americans.  Not any more are we a threat to  a country which will have to learn  to restructure itself.   The future  ��� belongs to the great powers but  how can one join with a whole yet  to be defined? English Canada is  looking for an identity; Quebec  doesn't want to lose one.    We  have no choice, we have to live  together, but the means and the  ways  to  that  eventuality   have  yet to be found.   Quebec doesn't  want to go through the Plains of  Abraham again.  That battle was  won by one colonial power at the  expense of the other and these  two  are   not  around   anymore.  The sun sets on the British Empire and despite that fact it rises  everyday to bring forth the light.  Quebeckers are determined that  it should shine on them too. Who  can blame them?

Profiles of this place  *y JOHN FAUSTMANN  Ernie says he owns just less  than an acre at his place out on  Lockyer   Road.      That   doesn't  sound like much, but he's managed to fill it full of good things.  He   lives   there   with   his   wife  Bella and their two small children, and together they take care  of all their animals - a dog, some  geese   and   chickens,   a   noisy  rooster,    gold   fish   and   angel  fish, and a small black guinea  pig.    Their yard is full, as you  ' might  imagine.     Gravel   paths  ' wind    between    gardens     and  ' ponds, and their small house sits  ' back  by the  woods.     Over by  "Ernie's   workshop   stands   their  big red and  white  school bus,  taking  up  a  lot of room,   but  what sets the place off is all the  evidence of Ernie's work.  '   Ernie is a woodcarver. He says  he started when he was a boy of  six, back when he used to live  with his family near the Fraser  Sfiver.  They lived near the Mus-  queam Reserve, where the airport is now, and Ernie can remember listening to ihe drums  beating during the potlatch ceremonies.   "People asked me why  I do Indian style carvjngs. .Living  so near to them when I was a boy,  it always seemed like it was part  of my heritage, in a way."    He  copied   the   adzes   he   saw  the  Indian carvers working with, and  those were his first tools.    He  began making rifle stocks, and  carving small boats.  In his teens he went to sea,  Working the tugs and the coastal  freighters as far north as Bella  Coola. In his spare time on board  he kept on carving, and it was  then that he got interested in  doing scrimshaw. Later, he was  a fisherman for one of the big  companies. Between sets he'd  find himself whittling away on  something, and often he'd do  things for the other fishermen -  bits of decoration for their boats  Then, in 1957, he came to Gibsons for a holiday. He lived at  the wharf for a while, on board a  houseboat, but later he started  a studio up on the highway. His  first shop was two planks nailed  between two trees, and although  it was a small beginning, some of  his earliest customers are still  coming back.  Now he's working hard full  time at his carving. It isn't, he  points out, the easiest way to  make a living, but he seems to  enjoy what he does very much.  "You've got to go where the market is, because it's sure not  going to come to you," he says,  and this is one of the reasons  they have their bus. At certain  times of the year he and Bella  pack up the kids and head down  to Oregon, to attend' the craft  fairs that are held there. One  particular fair invites them down  every year.'  It's easy to see that Ernie de  votes a lot of time to his work.  The inside of his bus is filled with  decorative woodwork. Faces and  human forms emerge from the  walls inside the bus, carved  murals sit here and there, and  there are masks, spoons, spears,  bowls, animals and birds all  over the place. He finds the price  of bought wood to be prohibitive,  (two kiln-dried boards recently  cost him $32.), and so he gets  most of his material from the  beach. He and Bella love beachcombing, and as well as wood,  they've managed to amass a large  collection of bottles and glass '  net floats.  Ernie says he likes carving in  yellow cedar, and many of his  pieces are done in that, but he  carves in red cedar, pine, mahogany and redwood too.

The largest piece he's ever done  is over on Bowen Island - a twenty-five foot figure of a woman  with an eagle on top. The smallest pieces are faces he once  carved from pits of different  fruit, tiny mouths and eyes set  in the sides of a peach stone, or  a cherry pit. People from all oyer  the coast have purchased his  work. Murals of his hang in the  Peninsula Hotel, and there are  also a few things of his in St.  Mary's Hospital.  Inside his small workshop he  has several projects at hand.  Rows of tools hang along the  walls, and the sharp smell of  cedar permeates the place. He  has still the adzes he copied from  Indian designs, and added to  these are a fine set of old English  chisels and gouges, given to him  by a local family. A small yellow  cedar bowl is clamped to the table  where he's been working on it,  a commission from someone,  and around the walls are other  pieces of work at various stages  of completion. Certain ideas  seem popular with him, and he  does lots of figures of old sailing  ships.  A recent showing at the local  shopping mall brought him  several more commissions,  mostly for murals. He'll be  working at these for awhile,  hoping that more work will turn  up when he's finished with them.  If it doesn't, it may be time to  fire up the bus and head off for  a working holiday, searching out  more customers for his carving.  Still, the carving itself is what  Ernie really enjoys. "I know an  awful lot about carving now, and  I haven't even scratched the  surface," he says. "I mean,  there's no end to it. You-Just  can't learn enough of it. There's  so much to get into.''"  Seeing all the work he's done  to date, you can tell, though,  that he's learned a great deal.

There's an  old saying, "Send flowers while  they are alive, and enjoy them".  Dear Ann:  I live in a rural area. We have  a horse, chickens, and a few farm  animals. Consequently we have  raccoons, weasels and other predators, among them dogs. My  problem is neighbours or friends  when they lose a chicken want to  kill the raccoons, owls, or whatever, even shoot dogs. It makes  me feel differently towards them.

Come cry with me  *' if you have problems about life  in general or sex in particular,  Write Ann Napier, c/o Coast  News, Box 460, Gibsons, B. C  Dear Ann Napier:  ;'. You mentioned in a recent  column the value of quitting  stnoking for health, sex and to  kfeep skin from premature wrink-  lipg. What do you suggest as  a >vay of going about it?  Weak but willing  Dear Willing:  ; If you wish to do something  ^v'ith your car you just do it - your  dbg; you put on a diet, he has  no choice. I think of my body as  a.'mechanism I control, my brian  can be programmed and directed.  When I quit smoking I just spent  the first day driving back my hand  and redirecting it to gardening.  sewing and cooking. I kept my  hands busy and the second day  1 just projected myself back to  the space when I didn't smoke.  I'm boss, I don't smoke so it  works for me. Dr. Pemberton  says it's like thumb sucking,  immature and harmful. Convince yourself you want to quit,  then do it. No coddling, no excuses, just quit and your body  will celebrate. New oxygen in  your blood, new vitality and self  respect plus new sexual stamina -  it will be a complete renewal.  Dear Ann:  I find myself full of self criticism and feel lots of regret.  My mother died and I've been  doing my own living, my work  took me away from home and I've  been having fun, vacations instead of being home. I'd go to  California and sit on the beach,  etc. Well now that I'll never see  her again I have this deep sorrow.  Will it go away?  Dear Looking:  Yes, it will go away. It is a  common feeling, when my Dad  died, the doctor, a friend of the  family said to us, now don't  look back. No "if only". We  were as full of "if only's" as anyone. The love and missing the  loved one is there - you remember  her with pleasure but the ache  slowly fades. Be good to those  you   love   and   sometimes   think  I'm a lover too, I feel if we want  to preserve the area we live in,  we should disturb the ecology  as little as possible. Cement the  bottom of the pens. Shut a door  in the evening. That's not much  to do to have the pleasure of  seeing the wild animals that also  control small rodents, mice, rats,  bugs. I've fed raccoons for  years and had geese and chickens  at the same time. My neighbour  showed me how to make the pen  safe for my poultry. It's our  responsibility if we insert our way  of living into natures balance.  Dogs on the other hand are the  responsbility of the owner.  They sometimes feel they are  more important than your livestock. Virtuous dog owners control them, put them under cover  at night and don't let them make  disturbing sounds over long  periods.
