Some members of the board  felt that since children from all  over the region would be using  the Gibsons pool it could be included in the 3-mill umbrella.  Hoemberg pointed out that all  the village had to do was to join  the joint use function to derive  the same benefits as the rest of  the region.  Area "C" representative Barry  Pearson asked Gibsons representative Metzler why the village of  Gibsons had joined neither the  Joint Use of Schools function nor  the   Joint   Recreation   function.  questions posed the village  council in Gibsons were: Why did  the Village of, Gibsons refuse to  join the Joint School Function?  Why did the Village of Gibsons  refuse to participate in the Joint  Recreational scheme? Would the  Village of Gibsons consider now  joining the Joint Use of School  function in* order to get the financial assistance necessary for the  operation of the swimming pool  through that avenue?

All other directors were united  that the rezoning should- take  place and the motion carried.

Rempel, who had  been on a year's leave of absence,  had been re-assigned to a Grade  Two class in Sechelt Elementary  School, a result of the recent  staff alignment which saw Sechelt  Elementary Principal Sam Reid  moved to Gibsons, with Brian  Butcher being appointed Principal of the Sechelt Elementary  School. School Board members  expressed regret at Rempel's  decision not to return, saying  that he had much to offer.  In other personnel considerations, the Board accepted the  nomination of four department  heads for Elphinstone Secondary  School.     Department  heads  in  the'^ipm^'year^will be Mrs.!  . Marta MacKown, head of Social  Studies; Geoffrey Madoc-Jones,  head of the English Department;  Becky Mills, Mathematics Head;  with Dave Smethurst continuing  as Head of the Science Department.  Construction  In the discussion of school  construction, the discussions  centred on the Pratt-Chaster  Road school construction; the  Pender Secondary construction;  and the renovation of Madeira  Park Elementary School.  The construction of the new  school in the Pratt Road area was  reported to be proceeding on the  schedule recently revised by  C. M. Projects. In discussion  concerning the naming of the new  school, it was recommended that  the   pupils   and   teachers   and  R.C.M.P. are investigating a  Abreak in at Kruse's drug dis-  ". pensary beside the medical  "clinic in Gibsons.

In the case of :the Madeira  Park renovation and the Pender  Secondary construction programs, most, discussion centred  around the question of fire protection. Approval in principle  is being sought for the adoption  of a sprinkler system to be incorporated into the renovation of  the Maderia Park Elementary  School. The cost estimate-of  the proposed sprinkler system  for the Pender Harbour School  is expected at any time.

Ken explained how it would be  a team effort, with the dog  watching for traffic and steering  him around obstacles, while he  listened.  "The first year you have to  work together as much as possible," said Ken, "It will be a  lot of work but what price can be  put on freedom and independence?" Eventually Ken wants  to be able to make trips to Vancouver. We wish him all success  in his new found freedom.  At first they may lose their  sense of direction occasionally  and Ken would appreciate clear  directions, as long as the dog is  not distracted while it is working  by people petting or feeding it.  Alternate [��� '��� Education 7 Program  should- remain in its present  quarters on the ground. floor of  the Annex, with an /enhanced  small group instruction-area if  possible. It was further recommended that at least* one classroom be made available to the  Continuing Education Program  to permit daytime classes. The  Continuing Education Program  may also require additional space  for their art program.  The Learning Resources Centre continued its growth with  the recommended allocation of  two classrooms and some adjacent small areas to carry on the  functions presently being conducted in the Quonset Hut.  A third classroom would be left  unallocated with the thought that  it might become a teacher centre component of the Learning  Resources Centre. The Quonset  Hut presently being used as the  Learning Resources Centre would  be allocated, at least in part,  to the Maintenance Department  for use as a paint shop.  All of these Management Committee recommendations met  with the approval ofthe Board.  Bowen Is.  In the matter of a new site for  the Bowen Island School, it was  reported to the Board that a  recent public meeting on Bowen  Island was attended by thirty-five  or forty- people and generally  agreed that the Collins Farm  would make the most' suitable  site for the school. It was agreed  that the feasibility of acquiring  this site should be immediately  approved.  * -IV.V  The broken lock tells the story.

The project will go in to action  only when all commercial hospitality outlets are fully extended.  Its purpose is to offer some of  the visitors to this area good  quality accommodation in private  homes, akin to the bed and breakfast available throughout Europe  and in many tourist areas of North  America.  Anyone interested in participating in this program is invited  to send their names and phone  numbers into the Coast News  officer where a tabulation of  interested residents is being  maintained.

Dog Fish Derby  There is something peculiarly satisfying and timely about the concept of  a Dog Fish Derby. It is not a new suggestion. It has been tired before, but as a  wise man once said "There is nothing  so powerful as an idea when its time has  come." The Dog Fish Derby idea has  been advocated by the fledgling Gibsons  Chamber of Commerce.  What makes this idea perhaps timely  is the growing concern being expressed  over salmon stocks. The Fisheries Department tried unsuccessfully and at very  short notice this year to limit the salmon  trollers in the gulf, pleading conservation of stocks as the reason. In addition  there has been a groundswell of negative  comment about the traditional salmon  derbies, it being pointed out that salmon  derbies encourage a greater number of  inexperienced fishermen onto the water  hoping for the big strike and the pot of  gold. Many of these fishermen hook  grilse or young salmon and because of  their inexperience mortally injure them in  the process of letting them go.  The only connection the Dog Fish  Derby has with salmon is that the largest  salmon inadvertently landed gets the  booby prize. In addition because most  fishermen looking for dog fish will be  fishing generally deeper than usual,  the likelihood of hooking surface swimming grilse will be greatly lessened.  Apart from these sound conservationist  recommendations for this latest fishing  derby, the idea of a Dog Fish Derby  has the something of the kooky charm of  the Nanaimo bathtub race. As any fisherman can tell you, too, hooking into dog  fish does not generally pose much of a  problem. The likelihood is, then, that  virtually all competitors will be in with  a chance of a prize, particularly since  there will be a considerable number of  hidden weight prizes.  All in all the concept of a derby for  the capture of the despised - probably  wronged - dog fish is an interesting one  and deserves all the support that it can  get. All the fun of a fishing derby, prizes,  and conservationally sound. It's almost  more than one should be able to expect.  What's the answer  The heated dispute at the regional  board over support in operating funds  of the Gibsons swimming pool is an  interesting once since it would appear  that no member of the board is opposed  to such support. The advocates of  support point that in its planned utilization by the school board, the Gibsons  swimming pool will be of benefit to the  children of many parts of this region.  The chief spokesman against support  under the three-mill arrangement which  would make is unnecessary for the support proposal to go to referendum, Peter  Hoemberg, does not appear to be against  supporting the operating costs of the  Gibsons pool.    He feels that since the  recreational program for the rest of the  regional district has to go to referendum  it would be to institute a double standard  to allow the Gibsons recreational project to go through without referendum.  Regional board member Barry Pearson  asked the salient question at the recent  board meeting. He asked why the Village  of Gibsons had refused to join the Joint  Recreational fuction and why the Village  of Gibsons had refused to join the Joint  Use of Schools function. Alone in the  regional district, the village has held  itself aloof from these co-operative ventures. Pearson has the right question.  It is up to the Village of Gibsons, now,  to offer a reasonable answer.  Hospitality committee  The suggestion of the Hospitality  Committee of the Chamber of Commerce  that the Gibsons area might take a leaf  from the books of other tourist centres  and open private residences for accommodation of peak weekend visitors on  the face of it would seem to have much  merit. It is the established and welcome  practice in many parts of the country.  Many of the acquaintances who come for  accommodation become friends. All of  them contribute to the economic well-  being of the community. It is a suggestion the aim of which is community support. It is to be hoped that the suggestion  itself will find sufficient community  support for a representative trial run  of the program to be attempted this year.  If you have room and could use a few  extra dollars - and who couldn't - phone  or write or drop into the Coast News  office and leave your name. The Hospitality Committee will meet with all  interested parties in the near future.  from the files of Coast Noms  5 YEARS AGO  Gibsons Building Supplies Grand  Opening: Free coffee and balloons  for the kiddies.

In case you've missed it  so far the neutron bomb is th%  latest refinement in the weapons  of war. It's special and distinguishing feature is that it only  kills people arid "is therefore  less destructive than other types  of nuclear weapons."  Fine, just fine. We can leave  all the buildings on earth standing and just kill the population.  A great comfort to us all, no  doubt. We've come a long way  from Guernica.  Guernica? A small village in  Spain which forty years ago  was strafed during market day,  I believe, by the Fascists who  were endeavouring to topple the  democratically elected Spanish  government. The Spanish Civil  War was won by the Fascists  with the support of Hitler's  government in Germany. The  democracies stood by, just one  of the betrayals, of democracy  which took place in the Thirties  and allowed Hitler to go from  strength to strength till he came  within a whisker of winning the  whole ball of wax.  What was significant about  Guernica was that it was the first  time that civilians had been  attacked by airborne enemies in  the history of warfare. As such  it outraged the world. Pablo  Picasso painted the incident and  the civilized world was discreetly  appalled. We've come a long  way from Guernica.  By 1940 Hitler was taking the  tactics of terrorization from the  air right into one of the most  populous cities in the world.  Night after night the Luftwaffe  came over London, bombing not  for military targets but at random  to terrorize the population into  submission, and what had outraged the world in Guernica had  become the standard means of  waging war.  By the end ofthe Second World  War the allies, the good guys,  our side, was reciprocating in  full measure, levelling entire  German cities - some of them,  like Dresden, with virtually no  industrial capacity whatsoever.  Then of course Harry S. Truman  took it to its ultimate with the  single bomb levelling of Hiroshima, followed in short order  with the similar levelling of  Nagasaki.  You see what a leap of progress  we made in less than a decade.  In the Thirties some villagers  were machine-gunned in a market  place in a Spanish village and the  world was horrified. Less than  ten years later the flattening of  whole  cities  with   hundreds  of  non-combatants killed and  maimed had become a commonplace of warfare.  Of course progress did not stop  there. In their tragic and absurd  adventure in Vietnam the Americans found themselves locked in  Va jungle war with a people who  had already been fighting for  over thirty years to get rid of  foreign overlords and had no intention of quitting despite the  overwhelming military superiority which faced them. The  Americans rapidly discovered  that it was distinctly unhealthy  to be stumbling around in the  jungles looking for the Vietnamese so they began to wage  war on the surface of the planet  and on the people safely from the  air. They unleashed the most  devastating air warfare that the  world has yet seen. They dropped millions of tons of chemical  defoliants. The devised 'antipersonnel' weapons designed to  attach flaming petroeum jelly  to the skins of people. They  worked- hard to improve its  'adhesive' qualities. As it turned  out they were unavailing but they  had brought the technique of  waging war against civilians to  a point which made the Guernica  incident seem like a Sunday  School picnic.  And now the technique of  waging war by killing defenceless  non-combatants first introduced  by the Spanish Fascists and  Hitler's Germany has been developed to the point where the  weapons now being produced  kills only people but leaves  their artifacts untouched. One  is reminded of the quote that  came out of the Vietnam war  when an American military commander in explaining why a  particular Vietnamese town had  been destroyed, said "We had  to destroy it in order to save  it from the Communists.''  What kind of madness is this?  We are told that the Soviets  and the Americans between them  already have stockpiled enough  nuclear weapons to kill every  man. woman and child on the  surface of the earth twenty times  over and yet more refinements,  more technological monstrosities  are in the works and being hailed  as a victory for the man who  seeks permission to have them  built.  What in God's name can be  hoped for with such weapons?  One sudders at the vision of the  world as a vast deserted museum  to a self-destructive species with  the buildings and th.. statuary  and the stock exchanges and the  churches and the theatres all  preserved but the pv-^ole who  built them and use' ' ,rn and  lived in them .?*> oyed by  this 'less destrr n.  I suppose <>..���.   . jomething of  'realpolitik' about the whole  thing - that Carter is trading  off the neutron bomb for the advanced new bombers which he  recently cancelled; or that it's  some sort of chess move in the  continuing war of nerves with  the Russians.' At some leveL'of  the upper echelons of the Pentagon, no doubt, it looks like a  sensible development.  But I'm fundamentally a simple  man. To me the development  of a weapon whose crowning  achievement is that it kills millions of people without harming  buildings seems like madness.  A national and international  press whose reaction is jaded to  the point of treating this new  monstrosity as a routine development of the Twentieth Century must be mad.  Also in the 1930's W. H. Auden  wrote - and he. was talking then  about international politics -  "We must love one another or  die." It was never more true.  When are we going to beat the  swords into ploughshares? If  we don't start clamouring against  the military madness of this age  we're going to end up as extinct  as the passenger pigeon. And  we're going to deserve it.  The first time I worked in an  isolated community of men was  when I was seventeen years old.  I had been hired as a crew  steward on a Vancouver-Alaska  cruise ship. I was nervous, green  and very unsure of how to get  _ along with the 50 or 60 men who  were to share my next five  months of isolation,., from the  world.  I shared a room, an eight by  ten cabin, with three other fellows  and within the first twenty minutes my oldest room mate, a  motherly 45 year old career  steward, had slipped up beside  me, put his arm around my  shoulder and kissed me on the  neck. He promised to "protect"  me from the other two guys in  the room - I was so frightened  I didn't sleep for two nights.  Eighteen years later, and more  than twice as old, I have been  working for the past week in a  logging camp. Needless to say,  the kind of problems I faced on  my first adventure do not exist  here. I am still nervous - perhaps  more so. Having got used to  doing things which allow me to  feel sure of myself I am, for the  first time in years, the "greenhorn".  The things I've seen and done  during the past few days will be  familiar to many of the people in  our community, particularly the  old timers. Everybody was a  greenhorn once - but only for a  few days - any longer and the man  wouldn't last. I still haven't  , found a pattern to my brief experience but it's coming. Next  week I won't know much more but  I won't be totally green either.  I feel more confident every day  and the kind of quiet, easy going  self confidence of the old hands  seems  more  within  my  grasp.  BEAUTIFUL THINGS.  beautiful things,  the smell ofthe sea,  the wake of a wave,  she loved beautiful things...  houfby hour  she would crouch  on her slippery rock,  close her eyes,  sense the tide creeping in...  a beautiful thing,  the smell ofthe sea...  her eyes would open,  the surf would call to her,  take her by the hand  and walk beside her...  a beautiful thing,  the wake of a wave...  suddenly,  she threw back her head,  her hair riding in the wind,  conducting a song of sorrow  to the surf...  the sea grew calm,  the surf lay quiet,  they listened and  they heard of things alien...  they listened  and learned  why she finally  came to them...  beautiful things,  the smell ofthe sea,  the wake of a wave...  they watched as she stood  on her slippery rock,  they felt her tormented mind  decide not to jump  for fear the surf  would not really be there...  unable to bear a last dissolution,  she stood,  then with dignified tears,  collapsed on her slippery rock...  the sea and the surf  reached out a loving hand  but hers was still  and would reach no longer...  slowly and quietly  the brothers  came to her...  the surf calmly stroked  her forehead  and his moist fingers  smoothed her hair,  then with excruciating tenderness  she was placed into  the outstretched arms  ofthe sea...  together they embraced her  and took her to themselves  as one of their own...  beautiful things,  the smell of the sea,  the wake of a wave,  she loved beautiful things...  Josef Stanishevskyj  What you read here this week  then are, in a way, the last confessions of a greenhorn logger.  One of the reasons I'm here,  apart from the good pay, is to  satisfy a curiousity about logging'  which was aroused by the first  Peter Trower poem I ever read.  Peter as you know writes of the  men and machines which rape  and tear the beauty of the wilderness to harvest the provinces  greatest natural resource. He  has a unique vision of logging  shows, gyppo operations, ghost  camps and blasted terrain which  is at once beautiful and horrifying.  I am not a poet and those  images, visions and figures of  speech do not spring readily into  my mind but I can appreciate as  well as the next person those  strange and ironic tales loggers  tell one another - like the faller  who murdered trees for twenty  years until he discovered he was  allergic to trees and had to leave  the woods, as if the forest was  taking its revenge.  The men who work in the  woods are different than I expected. Most loggers are really  quite small men, very fit and  agile, but smaller in stature than  one might expect. They are inclined to use bad language; as  I sit writing this I can hear a  typical conversation through the  paper thin walls of the bunkhouse. The dialogue is regularly  punctuated with a well known  expletive. The words convey no  bitterness or agression however.  The men here are surprisingly  gentle, kind and patient. They  carry on the most strenuous work  with smiling good humour.  A number of the young fellows  in camps are former students of  mine. Many of the things I've  learned in the past few days, I've  learned from them. They are  better teachers than they ever  were students. It's a satisfying  experience to meet these young  men in the woods, doing very  hard jobs with skill and finesse.  There were times when they were  in school that I despaired of them  even being able to fill out a welfare application form and here  they are working with strength  and precision at jobs they are  very good at. They are more  patient with me than I ever was  with them.  A logging camp is not a "natural" place. There are no women.  It is as close to a prison farm  atmosphere as I ever hope to  get. The men have a great deal  of time to themselves. Some use  it well, some waste their hours.  It is a surprisingly light and  happy place however and for a  greenhorn especially, each day  brings something new.  I haven't done any real logging  yet. There is a hierarchy of jobs  that must be climbed first.

Board answers 'waterless school' charge
Coast News, July .19,1977.
Editor:
I write in response to the article
by Howard White headed "The
Case of the Waterless School".
There are a lot of half-truths in
it and I believe they total up to
an article which is a significant
distortion of the true situation
and one calculated to cause unwarranted concern in the public
mind;
I would say first of all that it
is most appropriate that when
people do have concerns about
the safeguarding of public property they should express them
clearly to the public body responsible and if they don't get
a satisfactory answer it is also
appropriate that they take the
matter further, either to a higher
level of government or to the public forum. I do not think that it
is a responsible course of action
to go rushing into print with a
highly critical article without
having first checked its accuracy
and that, Sir, is what has happened in the matter of Mr.
White's article on Mr. Secular's
concerns.
Going through the article I
have the following observations:
At the foot of the first column
"What now has Bill on the prowl
for public gatherings - he doesn't
care what kind,". The School
Board had a public gathering at
Madeira Park Community Hall
following the fire; it has a public
gathering twice a month, once in
Gibsons and once at a school.
The Board were at Egmont on
June 9th, West Sechelt on April
14th, and Pender Harbour Secondary School on February 10th.
At each meeting there is an opportunity entitled "Questions and
Enquiries" for members of the
public to address the Board on
whatever concerns them. Mr.
Scoular has not raised the question of fire protection at Pender
Harbour at any of these numerous
opportunities that have been presented to him. He has not written to the Board either and in the
three and a half years that I
have been on the School Board,
I do not recall him as having
raised the question of fire protection at Pender Harbour Secondary School during that time, at.
least if he did, he didn't-raise
it with the Boards -    -  -   r  .
The top of column' 2 says according to him that 1.5 million structure is being rebuilt without the
cause of its destruction being
remedied. That's not true. The
principal cause of its destruction
was the fact that it was built of
wood. A contributory factor was
the fact that the fire sensor system did not provide the coverage
that is required these days and
by the time it sounded the alarm
the fire had got a good hold. I
don't presume to know as much
about fires as local fire chiefs
but this is what happened in
Dawson Creek when their secondary school burned down. It
was caused by an electrical fire
at approximately 5:00 p.m. A
janitor switched on the lights in
a classroom, there were some
flashes and smoke began to pour
from ceiling fixtures so he ran
to the telephone and gave the
alarm. Elapsed time - about. 2
minutes. The fire department
was located about a quarter of
a mile from the school. Within
15 minutes of the electrical problem, they were pumping water
into a fire that was visible in
one classroom. There was no
shortage of water. By 7:30,
the entire school was in flames
with the exception of a newly
constructed shop addition which
was made of concrete block and
which survived the fire unscathed. Sprinklers might have
saved the South Peace Secondary
School, fire resistant construction
certainly would have, but as a
wood frame structure the fire department couldn't. The hew Pender Harbour School is of highly
fire resistive construction, of
steel and masonry and gyproc.
The millwork is melamine surfaced high density particle board
not painted or varnished wood.
Furniture is almost entirely steel
frame with melamine surfaced
particle board top. No building
is totally fire-proof but this one
is highly fire resistive and there
is no way it can burn in the same
manner, with the same intensity
and the same speed as the old
wooden one.
Further down column 2, Mr.
Scoular is quoted as saying
"...and it burnt down because
they couldn't get around to putting in their water, now they are
rebuilding it at over twice the
cost and they still can't be
bothered." That is simply not
true.
In the third paragraph there is
a reference to the present "Gim-
crack waterworks". I am advised
by Mr. Rutter that although the
domestic water system at Pender
Harbour Secondary School has
been a source of concern for some
long time, the comments in the
article about it being a daily inconvenience and so on, are a
significant exaggeration.
It is agreed that it would have
been a good idea to have a reserve tank up on the high bank
across from the school. In fact,
two years ago Mr. Dombrowski
and a group of students made
a scale model for the Board to
consider and the Board tried to
get the approval of the Ministry
of Education for water for fire
protection services at Pender
Harbour Secondary School and
were unsuccessful at that time.
Shortly afterwards, the school
burned down.
I don't believe school board
officials have said the school
will be built first and water
systems looked into later. The
two are being done concurrently.
Fire Chief Wiibee is correct
in saying that the tank would
not provide enough water, for a
fire fight like the last one, but
if the Board can install sprinklers
in the school, then our advice is
that the swimming pool will provide more than an adequate
reservoir for sprinkler use and
: that's what-the Board is working
on at present. The drawback
here is that according to ICBC,
the relatively small size of the
school coupled with its highly
fire resistive construction makes
a sprinkler system there of less
priority,than it would be at other
schools in the province, and since
a lot of provincial money is involved in these construction
works that it is a major factor
with the Ministry of Education
and one which the Board is presently working on.
Half way down the fourth
column "...and don't forget the
pool is inside the school, it's
inside the building that's burning
down. Things are caving in,
falling into it, plugging the intake, you can't get within a hundred feet because of the heat,
how are they going to deal with
that?" It seems to me that Mr.
Scoular wants to use whatever'
portion of an argument suits
him best at any particular time.
First we are criticized for the fact
that the pool will only supply
water for an hour, then we are
told it will get plugged with
debris falling into it. Obviously
debris will have to fall into it
early on in the fire yet it is located
under the reinforced concrete
floor ofthe gymnasium. The gym
is a steel and masonry structure
containing very little that is combustible, it seems hard to conceive such a structure plunging
down into the pool at all, let
alone in an hour or two. Furthermore, the bottom of the pool will
be connected to an' external
hydrant located near the playing
field so that fire trucks don't
have to approach the building
closely.
It wasn't public outcry that
caused Peter Prescesky to give
the matter of sprinklers another
look, it was the unanimous recommendation of the fire chiefs on
the Peninsula, made to the School
Board as a whole that caused
the Board to start to press the
Ministry  of  Education  on  this
topic.
The Fire Chiefs also recommended a hydrant be located on
the school grounds connected by
water line to the slough on Mr.
Kliens property, so as to provide
easy access to a significant reserve of water. This possibility
is presently being pursued.
At the top of the fifth column
he makes a comment about community use. The general experience is that widespread community use of buildings reduces
fire risk by maximizing the hours
that the building is in active use
and therefore occupied.
Certainly no one can disagree
with the desirability of a large
volume of water being available
to the school at substantial
pressure by the ever-reliable
influence of gravity. There is
no quarrel with Mr. Scoular's
contention in that regard but I
still maintain that the article as
a whole gives a far-from-accurate
impression regarding the situation it attacks.
It is also pointed out that the
construction of the swimming
pool in concert with a water reservoir in the basement of the gymnasium does three things for the
community. One, it puts about
$75,000 worth of school district
and provincial funds into the community swimming pool which is
probably more than they otherwise would have-got as a contribution towards a pool; two, it
provides that swimming pool
about $100,000 cheaper than
would have been the case had
it been built from scratch as a
separate building; and three,
the operating costs of that swimming pool will be less than if
it had been built from scratch
in a separate building so there

Y\ 4.  Coast News, July 19,1977.  A LICENSE TO TRESPASS  Surveyors may be the only  professional men in any of the  trades with a permanent license  to trespass. They carry a card  which entitles them to wander at  will through anyone's backyard  they might be obliged to cross in  the line of duty. Usually, a  flourish of this at the property-  owner is sufficient to grant free  passage across his land but  there are of course, exceptions.  I recall one crusty old character  we encountered in the Sechelt  boondocks. He was a grizzled,  cantankerous coot with territorial-  imperatives coming out of his  ears. When, in the process of  running a road-allowance line,  we were obliged to transgress  somewhat, his blackberry-entangled homestead, he emerged  from the bowels of a tumbledown  shack, rasping invective and  waving a shotgun. The head-  surveyor, a small, quiet-spoken  man, flashed his trespassing-  license to no avail whatsoever.  It impressed the outraged old  stump-rancher not on whit. ' 'Get  the samhell off my property,  right now!" he roared belligerently. Discretion was definitely  the better part of valor in this instance and we duly retreated. He  had us stymied. There was no  way we could run the line in  question without risking a buttfull  of buckshot. Inevitably, we were  compelled to get a bit of legal  assistance. The R.C.M.P. officers arrived on the scene and  explained to the irate homesteader that we weren't out to  steal his property. Grumpily,  he capitulated. He might hold no  truck with little white cards but  he knew a uniform when he saw  one.  Frankly, surveying was seldom  this exciting but it did have its  moments. I followed the trade  for three years more or less,  cutting-line and pulling-chain  through various obscure nooks  and crannies of the Sunshine  Coast.   I probably learned more  ^^ges  from a  Peter Trower  about the area during this period  than at any time before or since.  I traversed hitherto-unknown  driveways to brush-hidden  houses, I hadn't dreamed existed;  hacked-trails along invisible  transit-lines to miraculously  home-in on crumbling corner-  posts, buried for decades like  needles in a haystack of undergrowth. One morning, my curiosity landed us in a rather awkward situation.  We were surveying a small,  rocky lot just off the highway  near Secret Cove. There was a  house perched on a bluff in the  centre of the lot, a small, brown  house with heavily-curtained  windows that showed no sign of  present or even recent, occupation. We assumed it must be  somebody's summer cabin,  vacant in the off-season. On the  seaward-facing side of the house  was a high porch with no steps,  accessible only from the interior  of the building. These windows  were uncurtained. Noisily, ��� I  decided to climb up on the porch  and see what the inside of the  place looked like. I clambered  over the railing and peered  through the grimy glass.  It resembled nothing so much  as the interior of an antique-shop.  The living-room was crammed  with ancient furniture: a worn,  leather courch; faded, overstuffed  chairs; bookcases full of mysterious, dark-covered volumes;  numerous tables cluttered with  knick-knacks of every description.  On the walls hung dim paintings  by minor landscape artists. It  was a room of tarnished memories that showed no sign of having  being entered for a long while.  Suddenly my eyes caught a movement to the left. A door stood  open to an adjoining room and  a figure was rising from a sha  dowy couch. It looked for all the  world like some sort of gnome in a  floppy cap. I had been absolutely  certain the house was empty and  the sight of this apparition startled hell out of me. I was back  over the porchrail in about two  seconds flat, practically breaking  my neck in the process. My companions, who were still eating  lunch, gazed at me in surprise  and some alarm. The "apparition" shortly flung open the front  door. It turned out to be a little  old lady recluse in a toque and  she voiced her displeasure in no  uncertain terms. . I mumbled  sheepish apologies until she  calmed down. And I kept my  curiosity in check on subsequent  jobs.  One of our more interesting  surveying assignments involved  partitioning into lots, the largest  of the Trail Islands, just off  Sechelt. It was a several-week  proposition. Since the company  owned no boat of its own, we were  obliged to rent an out-board  whenever we crossed the narrow  channel. The water in this passage can get quite rambunctious  on occasion. One windy morning,  we hit a deadhead, lost our prop  and were hurled back to the mainland on the roller-coastering  breakers like a willy-nilly surfboard. But we generally managed to negotiate the gap.  The island itself held no large  timber, having been logged years  before but parts of it were thickly  overgrown with salal bushes, a  greenleather, sinewy-stemmed  sea of them. Some of the plants  were over eight feet high and presented quite a formidable barrier to slash through. With saw  and machete, we perservered.  It was pleasant-enough work in  the early-summer heat. Then,  late one afternoon, the bullets  started flying.  The first crack of the high-  powered rifle didn't register its  significance on us. By the third  report however, we heard the  actual whistle of a bullet at  close-range and realized that we  were in danger. Someone twas  blasting randomly away at the  island and we were right in his  line of fire. We took cover until  the irresponsible marksman let  up, then headed angrily for the  beach. True, we weren't visible  from the water but our boat was  anchored in plain view. The guy  must be some kind of maniac.  The shots had evidently come  from a large, white yacht lying  a few hundred feet offshort.  We hauled in the outboard,  started it up and headed-out to  see what the hell was going on.  As we approached the boat, we  made out the man who must have  done the firing. He was thick-  necked and paunchy, obviously  a tourist of some kind with a  bottle of vodka clutched in one  hand. He had a considerably-  younger blonde girl with him and  they were a long way from sober.  The gun was leaning against the  back of the cabin. We were all  in a mood of righteous indignation and expected at least, some  sort of apology. After all, one of  us could easily have been hit or  even killed. But the man, an  arrogant swine of the first water,  expressed no regrets whatsoever.  He went as far as to threaten us  with the gun again if we didn't  bug off and leave him alone.' We  had little choice but to head  angrily towards Sechelt. The old  stump-rancher's position had  been half-understandable but  this nasty character was totally  out of line. We duly reported  the incident to the police who  ostensibly took some sort- of  action. In any event, the boat  was gone, the following day.  We completed carving up the  island and left it to the speculators. Shortly thereafter, I turned  in my plumb-bob and gave up my  license to trespass.  r  Record a.Ca)L  COMPLETE LINE OF AUTOMATIC TELEPHONE ANSWERING MACHINES  A  ��� TOTAL CONCEPT  ^ REMOTE CONTROL  \%Z\      CALL FROM  ANYWHERE  ���(THE WORLD  FOR MESSAGES  Dept. 01  Communications  Certified For Your  Telephone Without  Coupler  For Free Brochure  Call Or Write To....  ��� FREE DEMONSTRATION  in your home or office  TAKES UWJMTfEO CALLS  SAME DAY MSTALLATON  LEASE TO PURCHASE  Rent For 60 Days  Before You Purchase  100% 01 Rent Applies  To Purchase.

Fun with  Dick and Jane, starring Jane  Fonda and George Segal, will  play Wednesday through Saturday, July 20 - 23, and The Late  Show, starring Art Carney and  Lily Tomlin, will play the theatre  Sunday through Tuesday, July  24-26.  Fun with Dick and Jane is  described as a humorous fable  of our time. It depicts a middle-  class couple living lavishly above  their means. When husband and  breadwinner Segal is fired from  his job as an aerospace executive,  he embarks on a new career -  armed robbery, with his wife  Jane as a comely accomplice.'  They soon become known as the  "polite bandits" because of  Jane's practice of sending a  thank-you note to all of their  victims. Ed McMahon is cast  as the lecherous company president who pinkslips Segal, then  becomes the target of the couple's most ambitious caper. The  film is rated for the general  public.  The second film for the week's  viewing, The Late Show, is in  the tradition of the romantic  detective couple established by  Humphrey Bogart and Lauren  Bacall in "The Big Sleep" and  William Powell and Myrna Loy  in "The Thin Man" series, but  the team of Art Carney and Lily  Tomlin adds a comedic twist  to the tradition. Carney plays  a onetime contemporary of Sam  Spade and Philip Marlowe who  has resigned himself to an old  age of ulcers and half-written  memoirs. A two-fisted super-  sleuth he's not. He's cajoled out  of retirement by a Los Angeles  kook played by Lily Tomlin. An  actress turned dress designer  turned sleuth, Lily is hardly a  femmefatale.  Together the oddly-assorted  couple make their way through  the Los Angeles stolen goods  underworld, with Carney finding  new respect for his old skills  and Tomlin adding her off-centre  perspective on life, love, and  murder. Their adventures together are comedic, suspenseful,  and touching.  Ihe Late Show is a Robert  Altman production for Warner  Brothers release.  See advertisement this page.  Gemini: (May 21 - June 21)  It's your week Gemini.    With  Mars, Venus, and Jupiter lined  up favourably in your sign, those  new projects may now be started  with   confidence.

Libra: (Sept. 23 - Oct. 23)  A strong desire to either travel  or improve one's skills and talents  will be felt soon. Guard against  self deception. A sudden expenditure is necessary on Saturday.

Calm, level headed  anglers, who will smile at a  tangled line, or a fouled prop, or  even at a large hole in their hull,  will often break down completely  when they've been out fishing all  day, and realize, as they're  pulling in their line, that they've  caught another #��%*&**!  dogfish. It's a common experience after all, and as Mr. Mohney  says: "To the saltwater fisherman a chapter on catching dogfish is about as useful as leaky  galoshes. Any semiabiilatory  clod with access to a bent pin  and a few smelly herring should  be able to catch them at will."

Not only  can you eat them, but they taste  good. The problem with them is  that a certain amount of urea  accumulates in their flesh. But  all you have to do, after you've  filleted them, is marinate them  overnight in a vinegar solution.  This removes any of the offensive  taste, and leaves, Mahney assures us, an excellent tasting  meat which is very high in .protein. People in England, and in  many other parts of the world,  have been eating them for years.  This lighthearted book is full of  recipes like "Shark au Vin"  and "Scalloped Jaws" and even  "Doggie Haddie", but Mohney  realizes there may be social  implications that emerge from  this idea. "Don't think for a  minute that you can be the first  dogfish connisseur in your neighbourhood without suffering a few  snide remarks and sidelong  glances..." he warns. With this  handy little book around, you  won't have  to  waste  the   next  Come A Long Journey  Alan Fry  Manor Books  This   is   a   fine,    essentially  simple book, about a white man,  an Indian, and the Yukon River.  It's out of print right now, which  means you'd have to scour old  book stores to find a copy, but  the search, in my opinion, would  be worth it.   It begins in Whitehorse, with the two men setting  off down river for Dawson City.  They plan to do some hunting,  and get their moose for the winter.   Time present, full of silt in  the river that hisses on the bottom  of their canoe, and old cabins,  at  places  like   Lower   Laberge,  Fort  Selkirk,  and   Hootalinqua,  blends with time past, as Dave,  the   old   Indian,   recalls   stories  from the past. Halfway down the  river to  Dawson the  reader  is  taken back to the early times in  the   territory,   when   the   white  men had not yet come, and the  Indians  were  trading  with  the  coastal Tlingat tribes. The stories  here are anthropologically rich,     j  and told with feeling, in the same  careful way that Hesse wrote of jy  The   Rainmaker   in   The   Glaaa 7  Bead Game, or the way in which  Haig-Brown wrote of the Nootka  in  The   People   of  the  Whale.  The narrative takes one back in  time   until   the   most   primitive  state is reached, just as the river  always takes one back.    Caught  in  the  snare of a  simply  told  tale, a world of moose, caribou  and    grizzly    quietly    unfolds,  patterned by the swirling eddies  and silent backwaters ofthe river.  Mr Fry introduces his narrator  at  the beginning of the  book.  ' "May  you   know   him  through  these pages as I did, old now but  ageless,   endlessly   inoffensive,  making above all the gift of himself."    This is one of the best  books ever likely to be written  about the Yukon, and that great,  almost endless river.    The.gift  that it gives is a very special  one, one worth searching out.  Ralph the Deer  reaches toward stardom  The continuing adventures of  Ralph the young deer who lived  with the Danroth family on King  Road in Gibsons has reached  new heights.  After his debut in The Beachcombers, Ralph took up residence  with another deer and a Llama  at the Olympic Game Farm,  where he became a great attraction.  In his latest adventure, he will  be starring in the movie Grizzly  Adams.  SOUND  LTD.  This week's  Special:  KISS  Reg. $7.99  SALE  *5.49  Yes we have Sony  equipment in stock.

SUNNYCREST SHOPPING CENTER  "~      .GIBSONS 886-9111  V  k m CBC Radio  Coast News, July 19,1977.  5.  by Maryanne West  On Sunday at 4:05 you can hear  a story of Polar exploration which  won the 1977 ACTRA Award for  dramatic writing for Radio for  'Vancouver free-lance writer  'Michael Mercer.  [ What was life like in 800 A.D.?  -Your guess is as good as mine.  _Few of us have the opportunity  Ito study the old Norse sagas,  which, apart from the-archaeological findings are all we have to  tell us about the discovery and  settlement of the far north by  the Scandinavian peoples. Farley Mowat collected the material  which formed the basis for  Michael's story ofthe adventures  of Freydis of Greenland.  . Polar exploration, the chal-  lence it presents not only to the  physical endurance of man but  to his spirit, has always exerted  a powerful attraction for the armchair traveller secure and comfortable by his fireside.  The north still exerts a powerful imperative on the lives of  those who venture on her windswept tundras and ice-choked  seas, what would it have been  like on that forbidding northern  land, overshadowed by cold encircled mountains which must  have seemed to reach the sky,  at a time when the "civilization"  from which they came was itself  a very tough and brutish existence. Can the sensitivity of  radio, the technician's skill, a  group of actors and the imagination of Michael Mercer and producer Don Mowatt re-create for  you on a sunny summer afternoon the Greenland, of eleven  hundred years ago and its impact  ���on   man's   indomitable   spirit?

Harmony Hall Happenings  by Jim Holt  Well folks, here we go again on  another issue of what is going on  in the Village. I thought I was  going to be through for the Summer at least but it doesn't look  that way. The latest thing that  has come up is what I consider  an infringement of our civic  rights, in that the Regional  Board is considering taking over  the  Water   Rights  of  Gibsons.  This I think is a matter to be considered by the taxpayers of- Gibsons and should at least go to a  referendum so that everyone has  at least a chance to voice their  opinion, instead of having it  rammed down our throats, that  what the Regional Board says,  goes - I say no way will we consider a deal such as this, that is  why there will be an Open  Meeting to . all taxpayers of  Gibsons on Thursday, July 21st at  7:30 p.m. Influential speakers  will be there to brief you on the  details, so come out and voice  your opinion. If you don't want  an increase in your water rates,  be sure and attend the meeting,  if you are willing to pay an extra  30 or 40 dollars a.year qnj^our;..  -^to"rates^ell::^dl���i;can1!'say,^s,  you had better stay home, be-,  cause if you have that kind *bfJ  money to spare you won't be  interested. I heard through the  grapevine that if the Regional  Board take, over the water system  that your water rates will go up  at least $22.00 per year, "and  that ain't hay" as the saying  goes. I am asking you to write  Hon. Hugh Curtis, Minister of  Municipal Affairs, Victoria, B.C.  and cite Article #571, ofthe Municipal     Act     regarding     Voters  Vuvittp  Jfoobsf  DELI  and  HEALTH FOODS]  In Beautiful  Gibsons Harbour  one block from  ^Government Wharf,  Open  Friday til 7:00  886-2936  ,(we speak German),  Rights. This is to be a letter of  protest against the Regional  Board taking over our water  rights. So be sure and write a  letter to the minister, the sooner  the better so why not now? It  will be to your benefit and will  only take a few minutes of your  time and a postage stamp. Now  that I have that off my chest, I  would like to remind you again  of the trip to the PNE on August  31st, for all those wishing to  go, I would like you to contact me  as soon as possible so that the  necessary bookings can be made  for seats in the coliseum and bus.  Sechelt has already got a bus load  so let's see if Gibsons can do the  same. Contact me at 886-2363  and I will put you on the list.

Vanities  $55,900  More Letters to the Editor  answers  is a great deal of Pender Harbour's taxpayers' money being  saved by the incorporation of  the swimming pool into the basement of this school.  At the end of the article Mr.  Scoular is reported as "...doesn't  know exactly where this money  would come from and doesn't  feel it particularly matters as  long as it comes." Regrettably,  things aren't that easy, either for.  individuals or for school boards.  The Board cannot spend any  capital funds, whether they are  raised locally or whether they are  shared in by the province, without the prior approval of the  Ministry of Education. Mr.  Scoular's comment is facile and  unrealistic, it's almost like him  saying that he would buy whatever he wanted whether, or not  his bank manager approved any  necessary loan. Then the article  says, "Given the fact that the  school's insurance rates are sky  high and substantial reductions  would be gained by establishing  an appropriate water system."  This is untrue. School insurance  throughout B.C. is covered by  provisions of an Order-in-Council  which sets out that buildings will  be uninsured unless they exceed  $5 million in value. Buildings  below that value will be self-  insured by the Board and the  province and replacement buildings will be paid for essentially  like any other new building.  Therefore, there would be no  saving in insurance premium at  all. The only saving would come  if the presence of the water reservoir prevented or minimized fire  destruction of the school.  The first line of the schools  defence against fire is its type of  construction and the Board has  received advice that the best  second line of defence is a sprinkler system. The third line would  be the fire department and a  massive water supply, it will  move up to second if the Board  cannot get approval to sprinkle  the building. Those are the  priorities on the Board's planning  for the Pender Harbour Secondary School. I don't think it  detracts from the desirability of  a water reservoir delivering 100  pounds of head without pumps,  I hope however, that it has put  the balance of that contumacious,.,  article in a fairer perspective.  Board of School Trustees  Celia Fisher,  Chairman ofthe Board  Boarding a bus  can be dangerous  Editor:  Davis on herbicides  Mr. John Hind-Smith  Gibsons Wildlife Club,  Gibsons, B.C.   .  Dear Mr. Hind-Smith:  Your letter to Mr. Bennett The members of this committee  dated May 25th enclosing a ��� are specialists in their own field  petition from the people of the and have the responsibility of  Sunshine Coast expressing con- determining the terms and concern regarding the use of herbi- ditions under which a herbicide  cides by B.C.

The restrictions imposed by these  Hydro has a spray program that regulatory agencies are scrupu-  includes about 100 acres of right- lously observed.  of-way in the Port Mellon area.  This area was inspected on the  2nd of June by the Chairman of  the Sunshine Coast Regional  District, Mr. Almond, the Chairman of the Intel-ministerial Pesti-  Two of the conditions required  by regulation and this committee  are:  1. That a certificated Pesticide  Applicator in the Non-Agricultural Non-Forestry Vegetation Con-  cide Committee of the Ministry of   trol category be present on the  Environment, Mr. Bayne Vance  and representatives of B. C.  Hydro.  The area has no road access.  Tall trees to be hand slashed  and the remaining brush treated  with Tordon 101.  Let me explain to you why we  spray. The cost of electricity  depends upon the amount of  money Hydro spends on making  electricity and then delivering it  to its customers. Keeping our  transmission lines clear of trees  is one of these costs, and therefore we do this work at the lowest  possible expense while disturbing  the environment as little as possible. It would cost Hydro more  money to remove and top trees  compared with spraying them,  which in turn would mean that we  would add to the cost of electricity.  I list some of the regulatory  agencies and procedures involved  in approving the chemicals used  by B.C. Hydro.  Before B.C. Hydro uses any  chemical herbicide, it makes  application to the Interministerial  Pesticide Committee for approval. This committee is established under the Pharmacy Act  and has as its Chairman the  Head of the Pesticide Control  Branch. The members of the  Committee are from the:  1. Provincial Ministry of Agriculture  2. Provincial Ministry of Health  3. ��� Provincial Ministry of Recreation and Conservation (Fish  and Wildlife)  4. Provincial Ministry of the  Environment  5. B.C. Forest Service  6. Federal Environmental Protection Service  Boy, do I have a complaint to  make. Monday, 4th of July I  took the 9:00 a.m. ferry.

Jack Davis  Minister  Granthams  objects  Editor:  With reference to the news  item of your July 12th issue,  regarding "SCRD set takeover  for Granthams Wafer".  I wish to state that a large body  of Granthams Landing property  owners are most unhappy for the  manner in which the proposed  takeover was manipulated.  The notice calling the meeting  of April 23rd, 1977 should have  seated that a referendum would  take place. It did not. The motion  for a vote was called for from the  floor ofthe meeting.  No poll of voters was taken,  anyone in the hall could vote,  registered voters should have  been required to sign a poll  book. They were not.  Since Granthams water comes  from a very good spring, and is  of high quality, and is entirely  adequate for the needs of those  now served, requiring only the  installation of a new tank, and one  or two minor repairs.  Most of the property owners  of Granthams, with whom 1  have discussed this matter feel  very strongly, that in fairness to  all, a proper referendum should  take   place,   where   all   owners  rfwwwwwwwwwww have an opportunity to vote' or  CLASSIFIED NOTE  Drop off your Coast News  Classifieds at Campbell's Family  Shoes & Leather Goods In downtown Sechelt.

PBRncipacnon  Nutrition notes  Question: Why is there such a  controversy over the value of  dried fruits as a snack choice?  Answer: Dried fruits eaten raw  are high in nutritive value because of the amount of water removed during the drying process.  However, they also become a  more concentrated source of  sugar and calories. Due to the  sweetness and stickiness of dried  frifits they are a nutritive snack  suitable for eating at meal times  or when it is possible to clean  teeth soon after eating.  Question: Can you give me some  guidelines for lengths in time for  which food may be frozen?  Answer: With proper wrapping  and preparation for freezing the  following storage periods apply:  Bread 12 months  Lean fish 8-12 months  Fatty fish 6-8 months  Chicken 8-12 months  Beef 10-14 months  Pork . 6-12 months  Packaging material should prevent any loss of moisture.

I will now write on  what I think would be one of the  easiest of these fish to raise and  breed. This is the Kribensis.  Because of their closeness of  colour and size Pelmatachromis  Kribensis and Pelmatachromis  Pulcher are usually sold under  the name of Kribensis. Even a  professional Ichthylogist sometimes has problems differentiating between the two.  These smaller chichlids come  from the Niger Delta and tropical  West Africa and will attain a  maximum size of two and a half  inches for the females to three  and a half inches for the males.  Their body form is fairly slender,  with a moderate lateral compression.    The snout, forehead and  frontal portion of the back slope  in such a manner as to give the  fish a curved appearance. The  dorsal fin covers the central  third of the body and the top  portion is rimmed with a red and  gold border. The tail fin is more  or less of a diamond shape and  the upper and back portion of it  is covered with red. and gold margins with several spots in them.  The rest of the body is so multicoloured that it would be difficult to describe. The dorsal fin  also indicate the sex of an adult  Kribensis, the more pointed  finned fish being the male.  I would like to point out that  when these fish are seen in the  dealer's aquariums their colour  is very dull and the fish is very  slow and sluggish, but if you buy  one its colour will increase and  it will become quite  active,  it  may even become the prize of  your aquarium. One thing that  gets these fish going and growing  in a hurry is live foods such as  small earthworms or mosquito  larvae supplementing their other  types of food.  Another and probably its  strongest point is its compatibility with other fish. It will  eat young live-bearing fish and  fish eggs but will not bother  fish over half an inch long. These  fish like dark places and will  attempt to dig under ledges and  rocks but very seldom does it  uproot plants. A flower pot  with the edge knocked off on  one side will probably attract  these fish fast as they are a shelter breeder. Ian Corrance even  had a pair breed inside a big  shell he had in his community  aquarium which proves these  little fellows are not overly shy.  Kribensis enjoys temperatures  around 76 to 82 degrees F, and  . the water should be around neutral although they will adjust to  extremes slowly but they may not  breed.  Should the Kribensis decide  to breed in your aquarium one  of the first noticeable things seen  is their tendency to be moving  gravel out of one particular spot,  should it be a flower pot or a  small cave in some rockwork,  next they will both disappear only  to be seen occasionally.    Then  the comedy starts, the female  will forcibly eject the male and  will keep him away from the nest.  She will take care of the eggs and  young but she should be separated from the young once they  become free swimming. The  young will not show good colour  until they reach close to the adult  size.

A few of  Bert's socks went missing last  time. I did this, never did tell  him where they went.  The men are up the hill, trying  to fix the road so they can get  logging.

They're out of view now; I kind  of miss them.  Don't hear the news anymore,  since the battery in our AM radio  went dead. Don't even wonder,  it's just too far away to be part  of my reality now.  Bert and I live to the left of the  bridge I am sitting on, in a  trailer who's pastel blue exterior  does not hint at the nice wooden  interior. To the right is where  Rob lives with his wife and two  kids. Audrey had the kids with  her on the coast just now. Fur-  ther to the right is the bunkhouse.  Joe lives in there. He doesn't  shave now that he's up here.  This place changes everyone a  little bit.  Joe's socks are pretty well  soaked, and the washing machine  well rested, so I better get  going.

Mail your entries  to the Coast News, Box 460, Gibsons, B.C. The  winning entry will be pulled from the barrel at  the end of the week. Last week's toilet with  geraniums drew a record number of entrants  but the winner as drawn was Annemieke Van der  Werf of Box 10, Grandview Road, Gibsons.  Annemieke correctly located the oddity as being  halfway down Pratt Road, on the east side.  A few weeks ago the Coast  News ran a small item, with  picture commemoratimg the birthday of Edmond Juineau - his  100th. A few days la1:er the paper  received a phone call from Gordon Spencer, a resident of the  Sunshine Coast, asking for more  details since he had worked with  a dredge master in the 1930's  in the Klondike by the: same  name.  "If it's the saime person,"  said Spencer, "then he would  have to be around. 100. Heck,  I thought he was old then."  Spencer was giv en the mumber  of Agnes Hamilton of West  Sechelt, Juneau's daughter,  and a phone call revealed that  it was indeed the same Edmond  Juneau with whom Spencer as  a young man had worked under  on the Klondike gold dredges  forty years ago.  "I remember," said Spencer,  "that I was ente;rtaining in Vancouver at the time and got to  know the family v/hen they come  down from the :north. They told  me about their father running  the gold dredges; and it seemed  like a good way to make a grubstake. I headed up there and he  hired me."  Edmond Juneau now lives with  his daughter A_>nes and her husband James Hamilton, a veteran  of two World Wars, in a lovely  home in West S echelt overlooking  the waters of the Georgia Strait.  The pleasure of the two at the  meeting was very apparent.  When Spencer asked his one-time  boss how he managed to stay  such a youthful centenarian he  got the following answer: "Well,  I always behaved myself. No  boozing.       I   stopped   smoking  coconut matting from the Long  Tom sluice you could wash it  out and the gold would come out  like kernels of corn? "  "Yes, and there wasn't that  much stealing done," remembered Juneau. "Though there  was   a   Norwegian   fellow   one  Spencer, Juneau said that he  had first worked in the north with  an American company. "They  had dredges in Gold Bottom  Creek and Dominion Creek. I  was in the bull gang: digging  dead men, decking and oiling.

These buckets  used to literally gnaw the way v.p relatively  tiny creeks for the giant dredges.  It was in that home that the Coast  News was first privileged to be  present a't the meeting of the  two men who had worked together foirty years ago but had  not met since.  forty years ago. Course, I swear  a little bit."  Spencer's reminiscence of how  Juneau used to love to catch  cheechakos (newcomers to the  north) in the bight, start hauling  in the winch and watch them  run, brought a chuckle from the  old man. "Yes, when we were  winching the dredge forward  we'd move the spud - a twenty-  odd ton winching post with a ten  to fifteen foot steel spike on the  bottom - up ahead then put a  line on it. When I started winching it in and there was a chee-  chako in the bight he'd run like  hell. He didn't know that we  could stop it any time." Another  favourite joke on cheechakos  was to sent them up with a hand  file to "file the spud", an invitation he extended to the Coast  News reporter when he left.  The two men discussed the  economics of dredging. Spencer  remembered that the dredge was  a long way from making money  till they hit a place called Arlington. "Yes," said Juneau, "we  were taking twenty-five thousand  a day out of there.''  "Do you remember," asked  Spencer,    "when   we   took   the  time who put a handful of gold  in his rubber boot. Old River  DeLoup followed him around  all day, even went to the can with  him, so he couldn't take it out.  He limped around all day with  River DeLoup on his tail. When  he got back to the bunkhouse his  leg was all raw and two R.C.M.P.  were waiting for him."  Spencer remembered Juneau  needing a haircut and the crew  got Jim Towie, an ex-boxer.  They told Juneau that Towie  was a good barber though he  had never cut hair before. "First  try he forgot to open the clippers  and yanked a chunk of your hair  out. You started dodging every  time he tried to get more. Finally  you took off and got someone  else."  The same Jim Towie was  featured in another story when  the dredge dug up the body of  a horse and Towie ran it up the  bucket line.  "Yes," said Juneau, "I believe  it had been frozen in an old mine  shaft from the early days and had  thawed out in the pond. Only  Jim Towie would have put it in  the bucket."

I got tired of  that and had a friend who was a  dredge master. I got a job with  him and taught myself the business."  Juneau remembered that the  Russians were doing the same  type of dredge mining in Siberia.  "They come over and watched us  for a couple of weeks to learn  how it was done."  Other memories were of a  three-foot water line which  brought water to melt the permafrost to allow the dredges to dig  it up and sluice it for gold from  Twelve Mile Creek and the Klondike River. "When we went up  to Arlington we had to take the  pipe apart and put it together  again. We riveted it back by  hand - 1V4" rivets. I was on the  inside of the pipe."  Juneau's daughter, Agnes  Hamilton, remembers playing  all over the dredges. "I knew it  all," she said, "especially the  galley." Mrs. Hamilton remembered that her father always tried  to have his family with him whenever possible. "He walked 65  miles from Glacier Creek to Dawson City at Christmas time to  be with his family."  "I trotted," said Edmond  Juneau, centenarian and dredge  master.  Juneau's sister, Marie Rose  Van Tinghem, with whom he was  pictured in the Coast News,  dancing, was visiting at the time  of the Spencer-Juneau meeting.  Juneau said he was looking forward to her hundredth birthday,  four year's hence.
