Vicroj^/B.c-.  .UBBB  he Sunshine  Published at Gibsons, B.C.  15* per copy on newsstands  Serving the Sunshine Coast since 1945  Volume 30, Number 21  May 24,1977  He's, up - and he's over.    Evil Kiii^vel has nothing on this boy!  John Smith, in the role of T.V. stunt man takes  the jet boat used by Relic in the Beachcombers  series off the ramp and over six boats in Gibsons  Harbour.  ....and down again in a pre-arranged crash on the  last boat.   The incident will be seen in an up-  coming segment ofthe T.V. show.  Council says'No9 to Killam  The question of Haydn Killam's projected and actual use of  his property enlivened the regular meeting of the Sechelt  council held Wednesday, May 18th. It seems that the issue had  its beginnings two or three years ago when Killam was allowed  to build his building supply store on Wharf Road in contravention to the existing municipal zoning by-laws. Killam has  compounded the complexity by his intention of building an  apartment house structure which would entail moving the  lumber associated with his building supply store onto Lot A.  Sechelt council are wjjling^io "^  tract to regularize his preisent use of LotjsF and 25 but unwilling  to extend thai contract to include a further irregularity in the  use of Lot A. Outspoken in opposition to Killam's projected  use of Lot A is developer Henry Hall, who owns the property  adjacent to Killam's. "As the owner of property, I must come to  the elected representatives," said Hall. "I have spent a quarter  of a million dollars for something people oriented. I must have  protection."  It is Hall's contention that the  location of the Killam lumber  yard immediately adjacent to  his property would be detrimental  to his 'people-oriented' future  development.  Village Clerk, Tom Wood, informed the Coast News that at  a  special  meeting  held  Friday  afternoon, May 20th, the village  council - represented by all  except Alderman Leitner and with  the consultative presence of  Paul Moritz of the regional board  ���planning staff - had reaffirmed  its decision to offer Killam a  Land Use Contract covering the  present use of Lots F and 25 but  WHERE TO FIND  A COPY OF  THE COAST NEWS:  In Gibsons: The Co-op Food  Store,  Ken's Lucky Dollar,  Village Store, Kruse Drug  store, Western Drugs, D.G  Douglas Variety Store.

IN YOUR MAIL BOX  Navy League  The Sunshine Coast Navy  League of Canada will hold its  annual inspection of its three  cadet corps on Wednesday, May  25th at 7:30 p.m., The inspection,  which marks the completion of  the first full year of training, will  be held in the Gibsons Curling  Rink.  The inspecting party will comprise Capt. J. Knox, Canadian  Forces Base, Esquimalt; Mr. B.  Purie, Chairman of the Mainland  Division of the Navy League of  Canada; Commodore I. Morrow  of the Sunshine Coast Navy  League; and Petty Officer J.  Carter, Cadet Staff, Esquimalt.  Bereavement  Family and friends of John  Volen gathered together on Saturday, May 21st to hear a funeral  service delivered by the Rev.  Jim Williamson. John, the only  son of Marvin and Peggy Volen,  died suddenly on . Wednesday,  May 19th, when his equipment  came in contact with a live electric wire where he was topping a  tree near the power line.  . In school he was a quiet, conscientious student well-liked by  his peers. A diligent ��� worker,  he was just twenty-one years of  age at the time of the tragic  accident. The Coast News wishes  to express its regret and sympathy for Mr. and Mrs. Volen  and John's sisters.  were not willing to-extend the  contract covering irregular use  to cover the use of Lot A as a  lumber yard. "The lumber has  to go from Lot' A," said Wood.  In his presentation Wednesday  night, Killam had requested a  specific change to the zoning bylaw to accommodate his use; of  ...the property.: X^- -���XZX"-������  'te-::^deir^n7 Morgan''-TOoi  took att'a^ye .$��*''in'tfie^Vecl-  nesday night debate. He affirmed that' Lot A should. not be a  lumber 'yard. "He (Killam) is  asking us to entertain something  that is illegal." "I am only asking  for an alteration in the zoning  by-law," insisted Killam:  Initially Thompson also questioned Hall's right to address the  council on the matter, since he  himself was reputed to have sold  one of the lots he holds for an  industrial use. Hall said that he  had entered into, an interim agreement only and there was a  possibility that the Wharf Road  lot involved may be exchanged for  another piece of his property.  Mayor Nelson ruled that Hall be  allowed to make his case as a  property owner.  "Henry's always'talking about  employing people," said Killam,  "but what's he done? I employ  seventeen people right now."  Arts Centre  In other council business, the  council entertained a presentation  by Clarke Steabner as spokesman  for the Arts Council. Steabner  outlined the projected plans for  the construction of an Arts Centre  with Arts Council President Doris  Crowston in attendance. The  council approved the proposal  for the Arts Centre in principle.  Sanctuary  Another petition entertained by  council was from Norm Watson  speaking on behalf of the society  for the protection of the Porpoise  Inlet Marsh as a bird sanctuary.  Watson said that there had been  depredations in the bird population recently do the the unwelcome activities of children and  dogs. He asked for a lease of  the marsh on behalf of his society.  "A lease would give us legal  rights to protect the birds," said  Watson.  After the committee reports,  council let it be known that the  meetings of the Sechelt Village  Council during the month of June  would take place on the second  and fourth Wednesdays of the  month.  Mystery tiig located  ^the  *Capt  Rivtow Ltd. are not enthused  at the prospect of the raising of  their tug, Gulf Master, which,  went down with four men over  ten years ago. The owners feel  that after ten years at a depth of  500 feet and with the likelihood  that the engine was still running  when the tug went under, there  is very little value in the wrecked,  vessel. ,'  Some mystery still surrounds *  loss   of  the   Gulf ,Mastet__��  .Dolmage of Sechelt renters*- ^  bers passing the tug. on his way.,  to Vancouver on the day of her  disappearance.       "I   saw   her  coming through Welcome Pass,"  said Capt. Dolmage.    "It was a  beautiful' day.       We   couldn't  imagine what had happened to  her at all.   She was a good, able  boat and fairly new."  According to Capt. Dolmage .,  the theory at the time of the  incident was that possibly the tug  had run onto White Islands under  full steam with someone asleep  at the wheel. . A study of the  rocks, however, failed to show  any evidence that the tug had run  aground there.  The sunken tugboat was located by Can-Dive of Vancouver  using a new horizontal scanning  device.  Mrs. Dawe of Sechelt recalls  the   day   as   being   quite   fair.  "There was  a bit of a  southeaster," said Mrs. Dawe, "but  , nothing,to speak of.'_ According  ^ to Mrs. Dawe's logboo1Tt-ie'~tii'gv  owent" down oii the afternoon of  January 11th, 1967.  The mate of  the ill-starred vessel was picked  up by Navy helicopter alive but  was too far gone to be able to  testify as to what happened to  the Gulf Master. He died shortly  after he was found.   An inquest  held in Sechelt on February 7th  found only that the crew had died  by  drowning.     No  explanation  as to how the boat went down was  attempted.      The   sinking   took  place around 3:00 or 4:00 in the  afternoon.  Harbour Business Association  hears Cavalcade plans  Susan Rhodes was invited to  last weeks Gibsons Harbour  Business Association meeting to  give a progress report on the  organization of this years Sea  Cavalcade.  The Sea Cavalcade will be held  on August 5th., 6th., and 7th. -  this will coincide with daytime  sports at Armours Beach.  The other proposed events,  so far are, a dance on the wharf.  Kinsmen's Beer Garden at the  Tennis Courts Saturday night,  fireworks, the parade on Saturday, beginning at the Mall, the  flea' market, a salmon bake, a  car rally, the Queen's Ball at the  Legion on Saturday night, and  a bicycle race. The war^of the  hoses will be happening again,  but a site has not yet been  chosen. The long distance swim  between Keats Island and Gibsons is on again.   The children  will have a fishing derby on the  wharf. Instead of a tug boat  race, there may be a competition,  similar to the one for dozer boats.  The senior citizens are organizing  the bingo. The usual pet show,  races and games are planned with  the addition of pony rides. There  will be a fly-past by Tyee Air  . and. the Aero.Club. _..���, ;^ ���... ���,  Financing tiie"Cavalcade was"  discussed, this would be done by  sponsorship or lottery and is  being looked into.  Until now the association has  been operating with an interim  executive. A new executive was ;  voted in: Terry Amiel, Peninsula  Cleaners; Mike Nutland, Dogwood Cafe; Norm Peterson, Coop; Jerry Boezewinkel, The Jean  Shop; Jim Fry, Bank of Montreal;  Ian Corrance, Coast News; and  Connie Achtenburger, Bonniebrook.  Wednesdays will be Senior  Citizens Day in the harbour,  stores will have special discounts,  transportation is being looked  into.  There will be an executive  meeting this Wednesday at  Bonniebrook.  Wedding  On May 14th, 1977 in St.  John's United Church, North  Delta, a double ring ceremony  united in marriage Lorna Mae  Hasse, only daughter of Mr. H.  Hasse of Burnaby to Robert W.  Gerow, second son of Mr. and  Mrs. Dudley Gerow of Gibsons.  Attendants were Miss Kelli  Gerow, Mr. Peter Vanderrand  and Mr. Ken Bennet. Reverend  Warne officiated. Reception was  held at the Surrey Inn.  Production Manager  It was on this very day thirty  years ago that our production  manager Bruce Wilson and family  first moved to Gibsons. "I  thought I'd better bring the folks  along," explains Bruce, "as I  was.only twenty months old and  couldn 't reach the stove or sink.''  Chatelech School Principal Roland Hawes makes his first chilling entrance/into the water  in the dunking booth at Timber Days.   Chatelech students had a field day dunking the  -principal.  Although he claims to remember moving day 'as though it was  yesterday* we who have to work  with him know that he must be  re-trained after every lunch  break and have, therefore, some  serious reservations. regarding  this avowal.  From the time he took his first  'real job' at age twelve ("I worked on the local garbage truck  and was paid off in empty bottles  and month-old comic books and  magazines scavenged along the  route.") till his present employment ("I no longer get the magazines.") our Mr.   Wilson's  life  reads   like   a   Jack-of-all-trades  training manual.   The jobs he's  held include, working with horses  and haying; driving gravel truck;  deck hand on a fish buyer; gardener:    "surveyor:     draftsman-  ranch hand; chauffeur; boom-  man; carpenter; beach-comber;  cook; heavy equipment operator;  longshoreman; moving man; and  town clown - this latter really  more of a hobby.  During his spare time he has  written poetry, occasional prose,  performed in nine different plays  for a total of approximately 50  performances, kept his hand in  at drawing and wood carving,  chased women and drank a lot of  beer.  Bruce began at the Coast  News under the present management as a very competent reporter and features writer. Gradually a natural proclivity for design  and layout work drew him into  the back shop and when the  original production manager who  contributed so much to our early  months, Henry Sum, decided that  his best interest lay elsewhere,  Bruce was able to step into the  demanding position of production  manager and ably fill the bill.  His expertise is the more remarkable in that prior to working with  the Coast News as of January of  this year, Bruce had only once  been in a newspaper backroom.  "I visited the old Coast News  backroom when I was six, in the  era of hot lead presses.''  There's nothing Bruce likes  better than dealing directly with  the people he's designing ads  for, so if you have the time during  your busy week and you'd like  the personal attention, drop  around and see our Mr. Wilson  in the red apron and the back-  shop that he has made his own.

Authenticity  We would venture to suggest that one  of the factors needed to make an annual  town or village celebration effective is  authenticity. There can be no substitute.  It may be questioned as to whether the  decision of the organizing committee for  Sechelt's Timber Days was wise to institute an old-fasioned dress motif for this  year's celebration. What a celebration  can become is many things, it is true,  but the root of the Timber Days celebration has been traditionally a salute  to the west coast logger whose work  in that prime industry has helped to make  the good things we enjoy on the Sunshine  Coast possible. It may be that this year's  committee strayed too far from the original conception.  The pioneer days in this part of the  world for non-native people are only  just behind us. Dresses representative  of the 1890's in Paris or Dawson City  just have nothing to do with the story of  Sechelt. It may seem a minor quibble,  but it is the contention here that when an  annual celebration does have some real  relationship with the history of a place it  is liable to achieve a more whole-hearted  response from the public.     It's  what  makes the Calgary Stampede a better  celebration than Edmonton's Klondike  Days.    Vast and glittering though the  Stampede has become, Calgary is nonetheless in the midst of ranching country  and real honest to God cowboys work  all around the place.   Edmonton, on the  other hand, has only the most negligible  and seamy relationship to the Klondike  Gold Rush. They advertised the Edmonton route to the Klondike as the all-  Canadian route and made a fortune outfitting hopeful gold miners.    Very few  ever managed to struggle into Dawson  City via the overland Edmonton route.  Even the detachment of Mounties who  tried it had to give up.   The Edmonton  celebration is bogus.  We live on a smaller scale here in our  little communities but surely it would be  worth our while to celebrate our communites with some sense of acknowledgement and gratitude to the real pioneers  of our recent past. It's fun dressing up  in old duds, there is no doubt about it.  Sometimes, however, it is simply inappropriate.  What about the chlorine?  That is an interesting story that broke  last week about the discovery of the long-  lost sunken tug, the Gulf Master. Apparently the new sea-scanning equipment  was instrumental in making the finding  possible.  Perhaps one could hope that the equipment which found the Gulf Master at a  depth of some 500 feet could be put to  use in an effort to find the infamous  chlorine tanks at rest on sea bottom  somewhere between Texada Island and  Powell River.  Or does anyone still care that there are  three tanks of poisonous gas lying on the  ocean floor just off our coast?  \  What a fine idea, that is, that the  Sechelt Indian Band have come up with.  With their fine ship the Arctic Harvester  momentarily free from its other commitments the band proposes to take the older  people for a day trip up Jervis Inlet to  visit the traditional and ancestral home-  Outing to the past  sites. For many it will be a visit to places  where they were born, married and had  children. For many it will be the first  such visit in many years.  It is a fine and a thoughtful gesture.  May the sun shine on the voyage.  Summer returnees  Well the first long weekend of the  summer is behind us and many summer  residents have aired out their disused  cottages. All'up and down our. strip of  coast lights are appearing in the night  where only coastal darkness has been  throughout the winter. The Coast News  would like to welcome the summer residents with the hope that they will find  the ease from the urban that they seek  in a pleasant, cheerful summer on the  Sunshine Coast.   -  from the files of Coast Nomb  mber^hen  5 YEARS AGO  A proposal for a 45-unit motel and a  50-seat restaurant was placed before  Gibsons Council by O.

Hopkin's Landing, 1908. When George Henderson Hopkins purchased a quarter-  section of land, he inherited this almost-new wood-burning' steam donkey, first on  West Howe Sound, left by Mosher Logging. The donkey was used by the Hopkins  family to move timbers for construction of scows and tugs above high water. This  machine was later taken by Bill Cook to Lasqueti Island for logging operations there.  Photo courtesy Hopkins family and Elphinstone Pioneer Museum. L.R. Peterson  Musings  John Burnside  . I am absent-minded sometimes  to the point of imbecility. It has  been like that for as long as I  can remember. It manifests itself daily. I'm in the Dogwood  Cafe. I carefully marshall my teapot, my teacup, the tea bag, the  hot water, cigarettes, matches -  and I make my way gratefully to  a corner. Oops! I forgot the teaspoon. I get up and go over and  come back. What's this? Now  I've got two books of matches  and still no teaspoon and am sitting back in my corner wondering  vaguely what's wrong.  Absent-mindedness. Day  dreaming. Your mind being  elsewhere than where your actions are. I don't suppose it'll  ever get any better for me. It's  too late for sudden changes in  direction now, I regretfully suppose.  I've done just about everything  that absurdity can conjure up.  I've found myself standing vaguely before the morning bathroom  mirror with toothpaste on my  chin. I've stood before the  same mirror hand basin realizing  that I'm brushing my teeth with  shaving cream. In self defence  I now buy tubes of toothpaste  and jars of shaving cream. We  absent-minded ones need all the  help we can get.  Sometimes I try to find comfort  in the thought that it must be  hereditary. I have an uncle who  carried his bicycle down a flight  of stairs one time. He realized  at the bottom that he had forgotten his bicycle clips and went  back upstairs and put them  around his trouser cuffs. Back  downstairs past the bike and he  walked to where he was going.  "Will, why are you wearing  your bicycle clips?" they asked  when he got there. "Oh," he  said, "I've forgotten the bike."  Understandable enough, perhaps. But small comfort, indeed,  for a lifetime of similar obliviousness.  I pulled a dandy this week. I  came down the morning stairs  and found an emptiness where  the parked car should have been.  I stared unbelievingly. It wasn't  there. I marshalled my rational  whatnots.  Someone from the of  fice must have used it after I  parked it at 10:30 p.m. We,  most of us live within what has  been called staggering distance  of the Coast News office. I did  an early morning tour of the possible locations of the missing  car. Nothing. , I waited until  the crew was assembled at 9:00  a.m. I asked my urgent, drama-  laden question. No one knew the  whereabouts of the red car. It,  it seemed, had been stolen. I  knew my responsibilities. I  phoned the police. I reported  . the theft. They took the particulars and we waited the outcome  of the little drama.  Time went by. The day's work  went on. Nothing from the police.  Right I thought. Let's give them  more information. Some of my  cousins came home after I did.  Perhaps we can more accurately  pinpoint the disappearance. 1  phoned. "Margaret, was the  Coast News car still there when  you came home last night?"  I asked in my most investigative  reporter tone. "You mean the  little red car that's sitting behind  the house?" she asked.  Yes, I did indeed mean the  little red car that was sitting behind the house. It all flooded  back to me. I had got out of the  car with my foolishly male and  combatative dog, Rab. There had  been a large, tethered visiting  dog in the front yard. To avoid  the dog-fight I had driven the red  car round the block into the lane  and entered by the back door. I  hadn't found the red car when I  came down the morning steps  because it was in the lane behind  the house.  ; Nothing left to do but call the  police. "I'm blushing," I said  to the lady who answers the  phone. "I knew something was  going on there," she said. "I  phoned about the stolen car  earlier," I said. "Oh yes," she  said, "we haven't found it yet.  "I have," I said. "I just left it  behind the house.". "I see,"  she said carefully, beginning to  wonder no doubt what kind of  hopeless case of mental incompetence she had on the end of  the line.  For   the^ absent-minded,   the  mentally elsewhere, life is a continuing series of embarrassments  large and.small. If you've ever  found yourself with the open door  of a refrigerator in hand staring  blankly at the bright, cheerful  space of it and wondered why  you were there, you'll know what  I mean.  The condescending kindliness  with which those who are not so  afflicted, or is it blessed, is a  constant pinprick of resentment.  They smile and they nod with an  understanding which is feigned  and a self-indulgent pity which is  real. You squirm and offer  your lame explanations for the  absurdity of your actions.  I've pondered the whole question. Is there some plus to it?  Do we absent-minded ones have  a richer secret life of thought  than (he practical, collected  types? What is it, one might  ask, that we think about when  we're coming back with a second  book of matches instead of a teaspoon, or whatever. Pre-occu-  pied, yes, but what with? I don't  know. Is my mind ahead of my  actions or is it hangdogging it  behind my actions? It seems to  me that I've spent most of my  life on automatic pilot and often  when I get where I've gone I  don't know why I went there.  Are there companions in this  affliction out there? Do you have  any particularly choice instances  of the absent-minded affliction?  Share them with us. Not only  are they the stuff that unconscious and total humour is made of  but they could be some comfort  to your local editor who is the  bane of his friends lives and is in  a constant search for his car keys  or his glasses, or forgive me gentlemen of the law, his car. I  recently rented a house on Lower  Road in Roberts Creek and moved  my belongings in. Next day I  took a friend by to show him my  new house and I couldn't find  the driveway. Is there anybody  out there so afflicted?  If so, I've got. a theme song  I can suggest for all of us.  "Where am I now, where was I  then, where am I going?" If I  should stop you in the street with  such a question, be kind.  Slings & Arrows  George Matthews  Men writing about women is       Once recognizing that our sis-  something like Gentiles writing   ters, wives and mothers may have  about Jews, whites writing about  blacks or Englishmen writing  about almost anybody; the results  may be amusing but the accuracy  will be extremely suspect. Shakespeare himself did it badly;  his women lacked depth and  character, although he probably  reflected the attitudes of his  day as he struggled to create  female roles for male actors.  Even the Greeks did it badly;  Aristophanes' "Lysistrata"  depended for its humour on the  creation of the hilariously unlikely  situation of a woman showing  a strong will and assertiveness.  Modern male writers have not  fared much better. The worst  continue to create creatures who  pander to some kind of infantile  fantasy while the rest avoid the  subject entirely. With the exception of a few, Thomas Hardy or  Ibsen perhaps and two or three  others, our entire literature has  mitigated against women by constructing inaccurate and unrealistic characters.  This humble scribe is certainly  not about to add his bones to  that graveyard which contains the  shabby attempts of even the greatest writers, but I do have a few  random thoughts on the subject.  First of all, I believe that the  experiences of women, like the  experiences of say Jews, blacks,  Chinese, Russians or for that  matter, men generally, are  unique enough to be worthy of  comment. Certainly men and  women have many more similarities than differences, as of course  all human beings are more similar  than different. But it is the differences, however small, which  make the interest. Therefore,  if I am to be accused of racism  for perceiving some differences in  the races of men, I will have to  admit to a certain amount of  sexism in perceiving some differences between the sexes.  My qualifications are no better  than the next man's. I have a  mother. She is a wise, gracious  and loving woman who, while  fostering in me a respect for  women, also managed to maintain an aura of mystery about  her sex which left me, at the age  of twenty, both fascinated and  intimidated by the women I met.  I am married. I have three  daughters. I have recently been  given the opportunity to sit-on  a committee concerned with the '  status of women in education.  I have a professional interest in  the literature of Canadian female  authors.  These interests, and the consciousness raising efforts of  'femlib' groups, have created a  certain awareness about the role  of women in our society and particularly the role of women in  small towns. The novels of Canadian writers like Alice Munro,  Margaret Laurence or Marion  Engel have explored the problems women face when they are  raised to live up to the expectations of a society controlled  largely by men. Their female  characters; Del Jordon, Stacey  McKindra, Morag Gunn, Hargar  Shipley and so on reveal, in a  way quite unique in Canadian  literature, that many women are  obsessed with a search for self  which goes unrecognized by even  the most intimate of their male  companions.  unrealized yearnings which,  according to popular myth, women are supposed to suppress  for the sake of their families, we  should not jump to the conclusion  that all women are so inclined.  I would guess that there is as  much variation of feeling and attitude within the female sex as  there is between the sexes and  while some women, some of the  time, need the space to explore  their own identity, many are  happy with Tupperware parties,  baking pies and raising families.  However, while men are'more  often allowed to explore and express themselves, women who  show tendencies which do not  conform to fairly rigid, stereotyped images are more often the  victims of community'and social  reproof.  In a community like ours,  middle class women are particularly vulnerable to an unspoken,  but fairly well defined, code of  conduct. The community was  built on primary industry - fishing, logging - where men have,  by tradition, been supreme.  The actual wealth and production  is men's business here and while  women participate in various subsidiary service jobs; transportation, food industries, nursing,  teaching and so on, they are of  secondary importance in an economic sense. The result is that  women play a secondary, supportive role in community affairs,  and while I suspect most women  are satisfied and fulfilled by the  role they play, it can cause some  frustration and . unhappiness  which has few outlets.  Take for example the young  women in our high schools,  bright, ambitious and aggressive  as some of them are. What do  they have to look forward to in  our community when they leave  school? Some may be strong and  independent enough to leave the  community to seek their fortunes  elsewhere, while others, due to  various circumstances, can look  forward to three years in the Bank  and thirty years in the kitchen.  I don't expect these conditions  to change much., Our social condition is pretty much determined  by our economic state. However,  an awareness of the potential  and yearnings of womenfolk  could make all of us stronger and  'better people. Read some novels  by Canadian women! - Alice  Munro, Margaret Laurence,  Adele Wiseman, Marion Engel,  Ethel Wilson, Margaret Atwood,  Joan Haggerty - it might give you  a better understanding of what  some women have to deal with -  feelings which novelists can express but women -generally are  not encouraged to talk about.  Having scribbled these random  thoughts - what would the general  reaction be if instead of reading  "female" or "women" in these  idle scrawlings you were to read  "French Canadians", "Pakistanis", "Indians" or "Africans"?  Clearly I could be accused of the  most insensitive, shallow and  patronizing bigotry. In writing  about women however, I hope  I'm on safer ground. Besides,  I can't help but suspect that it  may be men who are the chief  victims of their own expectations  of women.  STEAM POT  By Peter Trower  A genuine hunk of history's  dying right here in front of us -  snorting out its last  in this frozen westcoast swamp -  bound to contribute its bones  to the floor of this cleanplucked valley-  one of the last of a vanishing breed  sold-out to the gas-rigs and diesels.  But she's a long way from dead yet  that smokepuking old relic -  she's got a bellyfull of fog  and she's raring to rampage -  Old Swen, the woodsplitter  plugs the firebox tight -  Shorty, the last of the jerkwire punks  trips the steamvalve and whistles her loose.  With that wild hoot still shaking the draws  she digs in her heels and reefs -  the mainline tightens like God had ahold-  jerks the turn free like peeling bananas -  couple of fafbuttfirlogs too  -  she bullies them in like matchsticks -  hangups? hell! she'll tear out the stumps -  power to squander that battlescarred bastard.  But we've small time to study on symbols-  we're too busy dodging those f ired-back chokers -  trying to light smokes with wet matches - cursing  Captain Vancouver for finding this country -  in the sting of a mean ocean wind  there is damn small profit in too much thinking -  no time for a sense of history  though a dinosaur whips us to work in its deathroes. Coast News, May 24,1977.  Lockstead reports  There has been a real debate  raging lately over the use of  chemical spray to control both  underbrush in certain areas, and  insect pests throughout the province.  B. C. Hydro has decided to  use 2,4-D to control the undergrowth on Hydro right-of-ways  around the province. 2,4-D is  a defoliant that is very effective  in killing off everything and  anything that it comes in contact  with. .  The plans .call for the spraying to be done from the air for  maximum coverage of the areas  concerned.  I must express my great concern in regard to the planned use  of 2,4-D in this manner, there are  some very serious repercussions.  It will greatly affect the surrounding flora and fauna. m 2,4-D remains toxic for a long time after  it has been sprayed. The possibility of a deer or other form of  wildlife wandering into an area  that has been, sprayed is very  large. The effect that the chemical could have on two or three  generations of deer following is  really somewhat frightening.  It has been proven that 2,4-D  can seriously affect the unborn  foetus of human beings. To go  ahead with such a project in light  of all the information that is  available is ridiculous.  There is an alternative to the  use of 2,4-D. Slash and burn.  It is more expensive and slower,  but the results can be as effective as chemical sprays and the  fear of contaminating the environment is virtually wiped out.  At present we are feeling the  highest rate of unemployment  the province has ever seen. A  'slash and burn' project would  provide short term employment  for' a certain number of people,  brightening up' what otherwise  promises to be a bleak summer  in regards to job opportunities.  The provincial government has  the responsibility to take the  initiative on this question. Over  the years we have blindly plunged  on ahead in regard to the use of  chemical sprays. DDT is a perfect  example of that kind of .ad-hoc  planning. We have lived to regret  the wide use of DDT and I predict  the same would be true if 2,4-D  was to be used to any real extent.  There is another debate going  on at present, over the use of  Orthene spray for the control of  the spruce bud worm. Once  again there is not enough known  about the long term effects of  the spray. All of the information  the Forest Service has used to  date has been supplied by the  company that manufactures  Orthene spray.  On that matter there is an  obvious conflict of interest. Technical information being supplied  by the company that stands to  profit from the governments  position seems questionable on  the part of the government officials.  We have some real problems  in regard to spruce bud worm,  and the control of underbrush on  the Hydro right-of-way, around  the province, but we have made  some huge mistakes in the past,  and I can foresee it in the future.  I urge the government to look  at the problems, initiate an investigation, and come back to the  people'with a thoroughly well  researched answer with which to  base our actions.  Mexican mimist  On Friday, June 3rd at 8:30  p.m. the Mexican pantomimist,  Gerardo Avila will perform at  the Chatelech Jr. Secondary  School, music room. The fee is  $2.50 for adults and $1.50 for  students and senior citizens.  Tickets will be sold on a first  come first served basis.  Gerardo Avila was a clown from  the beginning.' A child of middle-  class .'parents in Mexico City, he  was winning prizes for his poems  in elementary school and studying under the famous "declama-  dor" Acevedo, in high school.  University brought Him training  in - communications - T.V.,  movies, advertising - and a part-  time job as an assistant director.  In 1969 he met Alfonso, a mime  of the French school associated  with prominent Mexican artists  such as Arau, Jodorowdky (El  Topo) and Moreno. This was his  most intense period, learning,  practising and teaching his  chosen vocation.  By 1973 he was chief of Children's T.V., working on the development of programs to teach  children. Now he was starting  to develop a personal image in  Mexico, appearing regularly in  theatres and on television. His  schedule was an endless rush of  classes, theatre, car payments  and life in North America's  largest city.  But mime alone was not  enough to survive on, even in a  country which respected it as a  popular form of entertainment.  He had reached a point where he  wanted to see more of other  countries and cultures. He wanted to see if his art was universal,  FAMILY MONTH CALENDAR  MAY 1977  SATURDAY MAY 28  May Day. at Madeira Park.

Lottery  by D.J. Hauka  On Monday, May 16th, the  Elphinstone Grad Lottery was  drawn at the high school. The  grads sold most of their four  hundred tickets and gave out a  total of one thousand dollars in  prize money.  Mr. Montegomery, Elphinstone's principal, drew the five  winning tickets at noon hour in  the lunch room. First prize went  to Cathy Scott, who recently  moved to Edmonton, Alberta:  First prize consisted of five hundred dollars;  The second prize of two hundred dollars was won by Costa  Maragos of Gibsons. The three  one hundred dollar third prizes  were won by Anne Robinson,  Gordon Currie, and (curiously  enough), teacher Frank Fuller,  all of Gibsons.  The grad committee would like  to thank everyone who bought  and sold tickets. They also wish  to thank the Coast News for  their donation of free Advertising  space. To the winners, good luck  with the cash!  By Stephen Frisch  Due to a few inquiries I would  like to write out our 4H Club  Pledge which will show what the  4 H's stand for:  My HEAD to clearer thinking,  My HEART to greater loyalty,  My HANDS to larger service,  My HEALTH to better living,  For my club, my community, and  my country.  Instead of telling you about my  project, I have asked my calf  Ruby to do it.  Calf Comments:  My name is Bellavista Royal  Ruby and I am a 10 month old  420 pound Jersey heifer calf and  the six month project of Stephen  .Frisch.  My life has changed a great  deal since arriving on the Sunshine Coast and at first I didn't  think I would like it, and showed  my displeasure at being away  from the large herd. Every morning Stephen feeds me my special  diet and brushes me before he  leaves for school. The food is  good and I'm getting to like the  feel of the brushes, and the  shed I live in is very cosy.  ..U*_jit  As I had never been used to the  outside I have had to find out all  about wind, trees, and everything including grass -1 even had  to be taught how to eat it, only a  little at a time, as if I get too much  I would get real sick, or so Steve  tells me. ,  At the moment my one source  of embarrassment are my horns,  they are growing the wrong way  and because Stephen hopes to  take me into something called  a 'showing' my horns have to  grow down instead of up, so now  they have made me bands to go  around them to train them down,  like children's teeth they keep  telling me!  After a couple of hours, in the  .field^and my supper I get to wear~<��H  a lead halter and Stephen and^l  I walk about as I have to learn  to do as he tells me and to keep  a straight back and to have good  leg positions and to try to walk  slowly. This is a lot of work for  both of us but I'm beginning to  like it and to feel at home. My  favourite walks are along the  roads and I get to meet all sorts  of new things and to meet up with  other 4H calves.  While he was giving me my  evening brushing the other night  I overheard him saying that the  next 4H meeting will be to learn  the first stage of how to clip my  hair to my best advantage - this  bothers me a bit! They also are  going to learn and to take turns  in milking my friend Bunny who  belongs to Karl Johnson.  I am really glad to have been  chosen for a 4H project and am  now getting to enjoy all the care  and attention the children are  giving me.

I will try and point out  all the diseases that can be seen  or diagnosed without too much  trouble.  The first and probably most  common of fish diseases is white  spot, Ich, or Ichthyophthiriasis.  The first sign of this disease is the  fish scrubbing their sides on  plants, rocks or gravel. The next  sign is white spots appearing  usually on the fins but if left unchecked will later appear all over  the fish. This white spot is created by a parasite which burrows  into the skin of the fish, there it  lays eggs which are later encased  in a cyst. When the white spot  disappears, the cyst will have  fallen off the fish, sinking to the  bottom of the aquarium to incubate.  Once the cyst bursts as much as  2,000 of these parasites can become free-swimming to start the  entire cycle again. If left untouched most or all of your fish  will be killed.  On the present day market  there are many cures available,  these range from curative dyes,  such as Methylene Blue, up to  the modern broad spectrum  drugs. If you look at your fish  and see this ailment get the  proper medication immediately.  The next disease is called velvet or rust disease and is caused  by a protozoa called Oodinium  Limneticum. This appears as a  dust-like covering, either yellowish or golden in colour, and also  it appears to move. The stages of  reproduction are basically the  same as for lch, but the amount  of new protozoa are only about  200 a cyst. If this disease is not  caught in the early stages, it may  be that you would have to strip  down the whole aquarium and  disinfect everything.  This disease is very hardy and  in a lot of cases can survive many  of the cures you try. Some cures  mentioned through the sources  I have on hand are Methylene  Blue administered at 10 drops  per gallon, mixed at the 5% solution of medical methylene blue,  or if bought at your aquarium  dealers I would suggest doubling  the prescribed dosage given for  Ich.  Another could be Acriflavine  (Trypaflavine), but if the fish are  left in this solution they could become sterilized for a period of  several months. This is best administered as 2 mg. to a liter of  water with a teaspoon of salt per  gallon and a raised temperature  of up to 80 degrees F. which will  hasten the cure. Another is  copper salts such as copper sulphate which are rapidly toxic to  velvet, but also to the fish, so a  balance must be set.  The best method to do this is  to place a fine copper screen,  about 1 inch per gallon, into the  aquarium. Watch your fish daily  from this time, as the protozoa  will leave the fish when the level  of copper salts builds in the water  and can be seen as minute swimming creatures. They will die  within a very short time after  this. If the fish stop eating,  start to gasp at the surface or  any other distressing signs, remove the copper and change part  of the water as the fish are now  suffering from copper poisoning.  Another and probably the best  cure is modern antibiotics.  When trying to cure any  diseases in your aquariums,  always be sure to watch your fish  closely while the cure is in effect,  and also afterwards watch for a  recurrence ofthe disease.

THE GRUBBY CHARISMA OF  TOM WAITS  Every so often, a figure will  emerge from the melting-pot of  popular music, for whom there is  little or no precedent. Bob Dylan  comes immediately to mind.  When he first surfaced in the  early Sixties, it was obvious that  a writer-performer of great and  unique talent had arrived on the  scene. He did not deny this  initial promise but went on to  become a highly-prolific, vastly-  influential myth-figure of great  originality and drive. From Blowing In The Wind to Hurricane, he  has produced an astounding number of successful songs. I still  recall seeing him at the Vancouver Agrodome in 1965. He was at  the height of his initial success  and touring with The Hawks  who would later become The  Band. Despite poor acoustics  and a faulty- sound-system, he  dominated that enormous hall.  You knew there was something  happening, Mr. Jones.  Another singer-songwriter of  like magnitude, ambled into prominence, a few years later.  Kris Kristofferson had started  out as a literary writer but somehow drifted into the music field.  His forte was primarily Country  and Western and he brought to  the idiom, a lyric-writing ability  that breathed new life into hackneyed themes. His spare, beautifully-crafted verses convey  much with a minimum of words.  Such songs as Bobby McGee  and Sunday Morning, Coming  Down became instant classics.  While Kristofferson lacks Dylan's  stage dynamism, he is an amiable  performer. In recent years, he  has become deeply involved in  film-making to perhaps the neglect of his musical development  "but his solid accomplishments  still stand.  Recently, another great singer-  poet has emerged from the sha-  Pages from::^:":ijxTe^ij6:g  dows of anonymity and begun to  make his mark on the jaded face  of pop culture. Until about a  year and a half ago, I had never  even heard of Tom Waits. One  loose-ended night, I turned on the  PBS program Soundstage to  watch the veteran white blues-  singer, Mose Allison. The first  half of the program was given  over to Waits and he wasn't  long into his act before I realized  I was witnessing something quite  remarkable. The guy seemed to  have slipped through a time-warp  from the Fifties. He wore a rumpled black suit, pointy black  shoes, a loosened tie and a grimy  cap. I couldn't believe it. He was  like a refugee from the Beat  Generation and his songs and  poems of meanstreet and low-life  seemed to derive more from that  era than the present. He delivered his gutter-anthems in a hoarse  raspy voice, shambling back and  forth between a stand-up mike  and a piano, lighting constant  cigarettes, seemingly half-drunk  and possibly mad. I'd never  seen anything like him before.  He was quite beyond the pale.  He was also great.  I couldn't get the image of  Waits out of my mind and in the  months that followed, I scoured  music magazines and record-  review columns for some mention  of him. But there was never a  word. I began to wonder if I'd  hallucinated the whole thing.  Then, one Sunday, a friend came  over with an astonishing album  called Nighthawks at the Diner.  It featured Tom Waits in live  performance and the guy was  even better than I'd remembered.  We played the double-album  through twice and sat transfixed  Books with  John  Faustmann  Hue week la the Brat of ��� possibly continuing series of guest  reviews.

Women of the Shadows  The  Wives   and   Daughters   of  Southern Italy  by Ann Corneiisen  228 pp.  By Janet Helierud  Ann Corneiisen has penetrated  the silence of the peasant women  to bring us the daily rigors of  survival in Southern Italy. The  lives of five women, Peppina,  Ninetta, Teresa, Pinuccia and  Cettina are chronicled in the most  ' personal and compassionate way.  As we read, our myths of a lusty,  robust peasantry are shattered  by baring the painful realities  and frustrations experienced  in meeting the most basic needs  of survival. There is no room or  time for optimism in this life of  endless struggle, which more  often than not is doomed to  failure...time only for work and  more work in the battle to put the  simplest fare before the family.  The climate of Southern Italy  is harsh, the landscape bare and  mountainous. The people must  have work and the fields, infertile  they may be, must be tilled. Each  morning the trek to the plots, a  mile perhaps five, to cultivate  the vegetables which will sustain  them. After an arduous day, a  woman may have to walk a few  more miles to fetch water for the  household, not to mention the  other inevitable tasks.  Some women have repudiated  work in the fields, to toil as cleaning ladies, labourers or whatever  is available within their village.  It is all the same: hard work,  long hours and low pay. The  family has not starved, but the  woman is old before her time  and too often ill.  Marriage is another necessity,  as dictated by religion and practicality. After marriage, couples  spend very little time together,  the husband is usually away  working or seeking work in Germany or Northern Italy. If the  man remains in the village all his  spare time is spent in back rooms  or in the Piazza, with other men.  Lack of steady employment for  the men chafes their pride and  bitter resentment of wives and  children exemplify their frustrations. Physical brutality is not  unusual. The man is the head of  the family and his wife would be  the last person to refute this,  though it is largely her efforts  that support the family.  With the joy of each newborn  child, and there are many, is  the chilling fact that the impossible task of living is made just  a bit more impossible. Birth control methods are no more than  vague rumor, with hard facts,  let alone contraceptives, unavailable. The odd wife mysteriously  keeps her family to a few children; her otherwise normal life  punctuated by unannounced  trips out of the village from time  to time, with no questions asked  and no explanations offered.  The South seems to be caught  within a web of hopelessness, a  victim of its own mythology; impotence of government to solve  the most basic problems of water,  electricity and food supply - even  after spending vast sums. The  complete failure (due to purposeful bureaucratic bungling), of  the land reform, in which postwar peasantry had so much faith.  Jet speed propulsion into the  twentieth century has awakened  a new found sense of awareness  in the youth and .they now decry  by the excellent jazz backing and  the wild, apt imagery of the  lyrics. We also laughed a lot for  Waits, particularly in his introductory monologues, is often outrageously funny. We still knew  nothing about the man as there  were no liner-notes beyond the  printed lyrics.  Shortly after this, the C.B.C.  rock program Major Progressions, did a long, two-part interview with him and cleared up a  lot of the mystery. Waits, amazingly was only in his mid-twenties  and hailed from San Diego. His  parents were both "chool-teach-  ers and he had grown up in a  house containing an old piano  and many records from the Thirties and Forties. He freely admitted, being influenced by the  books of Jack Kerouac and other  Beat writers. Also by Charles  Bukowski, the relentlessly raunchy L.A. poet. His musical in-  flences range from Louis Armstrong to Lord Buckley and Ken  Nordine who pioneered the word-  jazz technique that Waits favours.  When I went to Toronto a year  ago, I took tapes of this interview and Nighthawks and shamelessly proselytized Tom Waits  to my relatives and anyone else  who would listen.  In subsequent months, Waits'  decidedly out-of-left-field act  began to receive some long-overdue recognition from the critics.  He was profiled in The New  Yorker, Rolling Stone, Penthouse  and several other places. His new  album Small Change was released to enthusiastic reviews  and has received much airplay.  Finally, last weekend, Waits  booked into Vancouver's Q.E.  Playhouse and we aficionados  got to catch him live at last.  the old ways of their parents  which they refuse to learn, replacing them with only a veneer  of modern attitudes.  Anne Corneiisen has spent  twenty years in Southern Italy  and she has written a brilliant  portrayal of its people, especially  the women. She is not afraid to  say she does not understand,  when she doesn't and she is not':  ashamed to have been frustrated  by them when she has. Most of  all she spoke with these women  as a woman, a neighbour and oft  times as a friend.  by John Faustmann  Canadian Unity Crisis  Jack Pearsall, MP  I knew there must be a crisis  going on somewhere. The weather has been so continually good  this spring that it was beginning  to be obvious that somewhere,  things must be going straight  down to the nether regions on a  greased board. But I couldn't  quite put my finger on it until  just the other day, when Mr.  Pearsall's Parliament Report  showed up in my lonely, anticipatory mailbox. Then I knew  what the crisis was. It was those  crazy Quebeckers again.  Only the fact that I'm an inveterate print junkie made me  read through the entire 19 pages  of Mr. Pearsall's latest slim  volume. Politicians, as everyone knows, don't write very well.  They lard their prose styles with  such stupifying banalities as:  "the unity of diversity" and "the  challenge of plurality", and if  you've read Orwell's 1984,  you realize that it won't be long  before the Liberals are reduced  to muttering things like: "War  is Peace, Freedom is Slavery,  Ignorance is Strength". Until  that time, though, we'll just have  to make do with the occasional  crisis.  "We must not exaggerate,"  writes Mr. Pearsall, "Separatists  Annual General Meeting  ofthe  SOUTH PENDER HARBOUR  WATERWORKS DISTRICT  Will be held in the     -  MADEIRA PARK COMMUNITY HALL  SUNDAY JUNE 12th at 2:30 p.m.  1976 Audit Available  Lurching on stage before a  packed house to the wailing riffs  of his usual crack jazz combo  (saxophone, stand-up bass and  drums) Waits got right down to  business with Step Right Up,  his frantic-tempoed huckster's-  pitch-to-end-all-huckster-pitches  and the show was oh. Waits is  probably the most hungloose  visual performer that ever was,  hand jammped in one pocket,  legs apart, bent forward from the  waist, cap over his eyes, he  rasped out his streetwise refrains  down-and-dirtily; sometimes  tenderly to an eating-it-all-up  crowd. He did most of his best  material: Invitation To The  Blues; San Diego Serenade;  Small Change; Depot, Depot;  Pasties and A G-String, etc.  moving back and forth as usual  between mike and piano. Frequently, at the end of the piano  pieces, he would drop flat along  the bench with arms hanging  over like a puppet with its strings  cut. One cigarette after another  appeared between his double-  jointed fingers as he growled his  way through his deadend-street  repertoire. It was an amazing  performance, perfectly controlled  despite the three-sheets-to-the  wind delivery that made you expect him any minute to miscue  and stumble right off the stage.  Eventually the group exited but  thunderous applause and a partial  standing-ovation, called them  back for two more numbers.  Waits did an up-tempo Fever  (the only song not his own) and  :losed with the moving Tom  Traubert's Blues. The memorable evening was finally over.  Tom Waits is definitely not  everyone's cup of whiskey but he  remains one of the most unusual  and powerful performers to ever  come down the pike. One can  only hope that his vocal chords  will hold out until he gains the  wide attention, his off-beat but'  very real talent truly deserves.  in Quebec are a minority and a  small one." Then why all the  fuss? Can it be that the Liberals  are unnerved at the prospect of  a separate Quebec? Are they  . worried, because for the first  time in years Quebec has a government of the people, instead of  a group of etiolated twits in pinstripe suits? Of course.they miss  Bourassa ami his personal hai  dresser. He was the kind of Pre  mier you could call up on the  phone and make deals with. Now  they phone Levesque and he  won't even accept the call. But  is this reason enough for 19 pages  of vague, blustery twaddle? And  who are the better Canadians. -  Quebeckers who continually  question the value of confederation, or the Liberals, busy selling  nuclear devices to the unstable  nations all over the world?  It's time Mr. Pearsall and his  colleagues cleaned up their acts,;  as well as their prose styles.  Unemployment figures are the  highest they've ever been in the  recorded history of this.country,  and inflation rages on unchecked.  The crisis isn't Quebec, it's in  Ottawa, and these diversionary,  mumbling reports from Parliament, devoid of facts, interest,  or real issues, aren't going to  solve anything.

Barbra Streisand entertains a throng of fans in the touching  finale scene from Warner Bros.' "A Star Is Born"  Twilight Theatre  Tuesday night is the final  showing of the colourful story of  piracy, romance and adventure,  Swashbuckler. The film is a  throwback to the days of Hollywood glamour when such as Enrol  Flynn and Douglas Fairbanks  strutted their stuff in flamboyant  adventure. This most recent  Swashbuckler is English actor  Robert Shaw who was last seen  as the shark killer in 'Jaws'.  Wednesday, the pirate film  makes way for the remake of  another story from the glorious  days of Hollywood. Originally  A . Star is Born starred Judy  Garland and the ever-reliable  James Mason. The present version has been made with Barbara  Streisand and Kris Kristofferson.  The story of two musical superstars, one on the rise and the  other on the long spiral down,  brings together a pair of the  screen's most exciting performers  in a film which explores the nature of fame and riches as well  as the changing role of the man-  woman relationship in our  modern society. The story delves  into the new star phenomenon of  the rock and roll world. The  picture is rated Mature.  The other film on the weekly  bill is most definitely restricted.  It is entitled The 1001 Perversions  of Felicia, which title would seem  to be self-explanatory. No,  Mildred, it is not from the Disney  Studios.  Wed., Thur., Fri., Sat.

The Paula Ross Dancers were  formed by Paula Ross in 1965.  Born in Vancouver,' Ms. Ross  began her training here studying  ballet under Mara McBirney. She  then left.to dance and learn in  other North American cities  studying with artists such as Al-  vin Ailey, Deborah Hay and  others. Returning to Vancouver  and to ballet with Joy Camden,  she became principal soloist with  Pacific Dance Theatre and began  choreographing her own works  thus emerging with the Paula  Ross Dancers. Through the. eleven years following, the company  has grown choreographically,  technically and administrational-  ly. Performing only the works of  Ms. Ross the company remains  singular and unique; expressing  a visual poetry without the aid  of props or elaborate costuming.  The pieces arise from places  visited such as the Northwest  Territories which the company  toured in  November,   1974  re-  mmmg*mm0m0imm0m  suiting in CANADA NORTH and  from people and events in such  works as COMING TOGETHER  (dedicated to native peoples) and  REFLECTIONS OF A DAY.

Hajmoiiy Hall happenings  Well folks, we had the last  branch bingo for this session last  Monday, not many turned out for  it but we had fun anyway. We  are looking forward to meeting a  bunch of visitors from Lynn Valley and North Vancouver on Thursday, May 26th, they will be here  about 1:30 p.m. and are returning  on the 2:45 p.m. ferry from Langdale. We are going to have our  carpet bowling on that date instead of Wednesday the 25th so  that as many as possible will be  able to meet our friends from North Vancouver. I would like to ask  the ladies to bring along a few  sandwiches so that we can have  a cup of tea and chit-chat while  they are here, it -will only be for  about an hour so lets all make it  a happy occasion.  Had a letter from Mrs. Hale,  president of Branch #7 Penticton,  thanking us for the wonderful  time they had while visiting us  on May 4th. They really enjoyed  themselves and I wish to thank  everyone who participated in  giving them such a good time.  The last account I heard from.  Continental Tours in Sechelt regarding the trip to Squamish on  June 2nd is that there was only  one seat left on the bus but Mr.  Ben said that he would put on  another bus if anyone else wanted  to go.  Our next general meeting and  the final one for this term will be  held on Monday, June 6th at  2:00 p.m., I would like to see a  good turnout as quite a bit of unfinished business has to be discussed and you are the ones who  have the final say, so lets get together and make this a real good  meeting and get ready for the fall  session in September.  Glad to report that Dick Oliver  is home and recuperating, so we  expect to see him around pretty  soon. It will take time to get back  on the road to recovery for him,  but we all wish him well and hope  to have him back again real soon.  Take care Dick and don't stay out  too late at night.  You may have noticed in my  last column that on June 2nd they  said it was our 40th Wedding  Anniversary. Well thanks Lindy  and John for making us nine  years younger, but it is our 49th  Wedding Anniversary. We can  sure stand a few years taken off  but what is done is done and no  matter what we do we can't be  bringing those years back. I  was thinking if I ever sent the  paper with that 40th anniversary  date in it to our son and daughter  they would ask what was going  on as our son is going to be 46 in  July and he is the younger of the  two. Thanks anyway Lindy and  John for making us feel as the  song says, "You make me feel so  young".  Carpet bowling will be carried  on during the summer for all  those interested and I know that  Julius will want to go over to the  hall and keep in practice on the  snooker table, so I will make arrangements to leave the key with  somebody so that those desirous  of using the hall during the sum-  bermaygetin.  As you know we have taken  delivery of our new ride-around  mower and John Holloway our  groundskeeper is the engineer  in charge of it. It will be a big  asset to John who is a very diligent worker. The only problem  we have is that the doorway going  into the utility shed is not wide  enough for it, but that is a problem that is easily worked out and  we will have it out of the foyer  some time next week.  This is going to be a short  column this time as I have run  out of news, sorry I was not able  to get over to the carpet bowling  last Wednesday but we had an  unfortunate accident at home.  Kay had just finished hanging out  her washing and oops the line  broke. Well you have heard the  old saying, "Hell hath no fury  like a woman scorned". Well to  make things worse it dropped  right on the garden that had just  been newly dug and I had to fix  it so that is the reason I was not  over at the carpet bowling. However I promise I will be over next  Thursday for sure, come hell or  high water.  Don't forget the change in the  date for carpet bowling - Thursday May 26th so that we can visit  with our friends from North  Vancouver.  Thursday, June 2nd trip to  Squamish, Monday June 6th is  the general meeting.  This being all the news I have  for you at this time I will close  by saying, hope to see you all  next Thursday, until then, Adios  Amigos.

They applauded with feeling the  three champions who had represented them in the Health  Clinic Walkathon on May 15.  These intrepid walkers were Mrs.  Gladys Brown, Mrs. Mary Ledin-  gham and Eric Brooks, all three  of whom finished the nine miles  in good time. Mrs. Ledingham  and her brother, Eric Brooks,  came in first of their category  and won the prize of 10 silver  dollars, which they in turn presented back to the Health Clinic  fund. The pledges earned by  these three walkers amount to  about $150.00.  After a short business meeting,  the rest of the evening was spent  vicariously in the wonderworld of  "Ann and Sam". That is, Ann  Clement projected an admirable  selection of her colour-slides and  Sam Lamont narrated the story  line. The pictures were a record  of the trip made in Sam's motor  vessel, Vulture, along the many  shores of the Queen Charoltte  Islands in 1973.  Masset. The names of the  places ring magically. Tlell.  A man lives there who makes  dulcimers and another man built  a five-sided log house. Naden  Harbour: the centre of old whaling; a fishermen's co-operative.  Kiusta: an archaeological dig  (headed by archaeologist Trisha  Gessler and her husband). Grand  old Haida mortuary poles are  there, richly carved (and the indication that some ill-mantiered  visitor has sawed out and absconded with a choice piece of carving). Tian Village: the remainder of an old, unsuccessful oil-  drilling venture in 1912.  Breakers like glaciers; reefs  like shark's teeth; and the rusty  wreck of \ the Clarksdale Victory  which ran aground in 1947 at a  cost of 51 lives.  Tasu Harbour: where Falcon-  bridge Mines ships out copper  and iron ore to Japan. Soviet  trawlers anchored in the sheltered bay to transfer their catches  to the factory ship Vladivostok.  Finally, because Ann and Sam  'always provide a; good' ending,1  there is the exciting" sequence of  the salvaging of a mighty anchor,  all that  remains of the sailing  ship Florence which was lost in  a storm in 1902 off this terrible  strip of coast. By means of heroic '  patience and ingenuity the anchor  is raised from the hole in the sea,  it   is   transported    and    safely '  beached.    While the exhausted  participants   sleep,   the   relic   is  promptly stolen.   But is recovered.  And now rests with honour -  among the flowers and vegetables  in the seaside garden of Sam's  friend.

Let'sTalk. Profiles of this place  by  John Faustmann  BOB RANDALL  It's been about five years now  since Bob Randall and his wife  Francis moved down from their  homestead at Randall Lake. They,  have a large trailer they live in  now; it's easier to take care of,  and they can still keep a bit of  garden out back.    The Randalls  fill their days with work around  the place, visits to friends and the  occasional trip to town.    Bob is  eighty now, but his interest in  life and the world around him  seems completely undiminished.  "I saw the first light of day in  1897," he says, and it's surprising how many early childhood  memories he can recall in detail.  His family came from Denmark,  where they were farmers.   "My  grandfather had too many sons,  so there wasn't enough land for  the amount of sons in the family.  So my dad decided to go to Canada where the land was free."  They   left   Denmark   in    1902.  Although Bob was only five years  old then, the'journey across in  the old tramp  steamer  is  still  fresh in his mind.    Immigrants  from Poland, France and England, as well as from Denmark  filled the ship.  When the rudder  broke in a storm and the boat  broached, Bob's  mother had a  bowl full of gravy land in her lap.  Bob fell out of his bunk  and  landed on the tea kettle.    They  made it to Halifax, finally, but  some of the immigrants were dismayed at what they found. Many  of them had intended to settle  on the prairies, but as Bob observes : ' 'They tell you about free  land in Canada, but they don't  tell you how big Canada is."  Abandoning their idea of a  farm on the prairies, at least  until they could learn English,  his family moved instead .to a  town near Kitchener, Ontario.  Here his father got work in the  woolen mills. He worked from  seven in the morning till six at  night, and got home at 1:00 p.m.  on Saturdays. He got paid $7.00  a week.    It was here that Bob,  too, had a job, his first. At the  age of nine he got paid five  quarts of milk for plowing a  farmer's field. Then, in 1915,  the family was ready to move  west. It must have been quite  an undertaking, for by now Bob's  parents had ten children.  They settled, finally, in the Fox  Valley in Saskatchewan where his  father staked land, paying the  government $10.00 for every 160  acres he pre-empted. Several  Russian families were already in  the area, many of them living in  sod houses. Bob, the oldest of  the children, was in his teens  now. He took readily to farming,  and explored the surrounding  prairies on his saddle pony.  Once, out duck hunting at a nearby slough, he got twenty-two  birds with one shot. He recalls  how tickled he was with himself until he got home and showed  them to his mother. "Oh, you  got some," she said. "You shot  'em. You pick'em."  It wasn't much later that Bob  hired- on -as -a-teamster-for the  local grocery store. It was forty-  five miles from the store to the  railroad, and Bob would cover the  distance in a wagon with a team  of mules. It took him a day to  make the trip. Sometimes there  was too much of a load, and Bob  would walk the forty-five miles.  In the winter he drove the sled  with the same mules, and he likes  to tell about the time he made  the trip in a blizzard. He came on  the postman in the middle of the  road, just sitting there in his  cutter. "Oh, said the postman,  you're lost too." "I'm not lost,"  Bob replied, and told the man he  was still on the road. It wasn't  until six miles later that the postman realized Bob was right.  After all, Bob says: "The mules  made that trip so many times you  couldn't get them off the road if  you wanted to." Then, in 1919,  his work as a teamster took a  grisly turn. When the Spanish  Influenza struck, and thirteen  people died in his town, it was  Bob who ended up removing the  bodies, and making sure that  the survivors, could care' for  themselves.  By now Bob had spent $10 on  a book about horse training.  With what he learned from it,  he was able to make a pretty good  living, going around to farms  curing horses of bad habits and  stubbornness. He ended up in  Moose Jaw, running a road grader for a fellow. When the rains  came, washing out the roads,  the other fellow suggested they  go work on his farm for awhile.  Before they went, though, Bob  wanted to take in the carnival  that had just come to town. One  glimpse was enough, and Bob  hired on with them. . Next day  the fellow with the grader said he  was still going home. "Take my  horses," said Bob, "I won't be  back. I'm going with the carnival." "You're crazy," said the  other. "So I'm crazy. I want to  see the country."  For the next twenty-seven  years Bob would .work with the;,  carnival, but in-1926, at the^erid^  of a season, he landed in Vancouver. He had an idea that he'd  like to find a lake somewhere on  the coast, and start a muskrat  farm. By 1928, he'd found the  spot, the lake near here that bears  his name. It was virgin land.  "Nobody had put a saw in it."  Not much later, he met and married his wife, a lady from Roberts  Creek. They had two daughters.  The sixty-six muskrats he got  from the game commissioner  didn't do too well though. There  wasn't the right kind of feed for  them in the lake. Realizing  there wasn't much of a market for  mangy muskrat pelts, Bob decided to go into the egg business  instead. His wife saved the day  when the brooder house nearly  burnt down, and Bob would have  to spend a few nights on a cot in  the brooder, just to make sure  the chicks didn't freeze, but the  egg business went well. At one  time he delivered eggs to a large  part of the Sunshine Coast.

"Speed" Garrett, one of the  owners, gave him that first job,  running a swing contraption  called a "Mollie and Jiggs".  A bit later, they had him selling  tickets, and his earliest attempt  at this job must have been a little  below standard, for the owner  soon came up to him and said:  "Why don't you holler a little?"  "What am I going to tell the  people?" asked Bob. "Tell 'em  to come on the swing!" "They  can see the swing," said Bob.  at was fifty feet high.) "Holler  a little bit anyway!"  He must have learned how to  holler well, because for twenty-  one years he was lot boss' for the  show. From running a "doll  joint", shouting: "Ten cents!  Big happy kewpie dolls!", he  graduated to running the whole  lot. The rides haven't changed  much through the years. They  had tild-a-whirls then, merry-go-  rounds, ferns wheels, the cater  pillar, the motor-drome and the  moon rocket. Down on the midway were the games of chance -  the skillo, the racetrack and the  flasher, to name a few. The  places where you could win  money were 'money stalls'.  Places that gave away blankets  were 'blanket stalls' and there  were 'model shows', 'dancing  shows', side shows, the monkey  show, and the 'Ten-in-one', or  the freak shows. Sometimes the  carnival travelled with a circus,  and one night the elephant  trainer had a few too many and  the elephants got loose. That was  bad enough, but then another  time two tigers got loose. Bob  and the animal trainer were trying to figure out a way to get  them back in the cages, and Bob  asked him what he intended to  do. "I need a rope," said the  trainer. "What for?" "There?s  two," said the trainer, "I can't  do nothing with two." "Well,' *  said Bob, "If you're going to  start tying one of them tigers up  with a rope, I'm leaving." But  with the aid of a pitchfork they  got the big cats safely back in  their cages. "It kept you thinking  all the time," Bob says of his  years with the carnival. Of his  job as the lot boss, he remarks:  "It's a city in itself. You have to  be mayor, the police and the lawyer. And you have to be sure  you can come back next year.''  It's been a full life for Bob  Randall, and there's still good  years to come. His wife Francis  pours him a cup of tea, and he  sits back, thinking it all over.  "The world in them days. You  had to help each other. There  was no other way about it. There  was no such thing as social security, or unemployment insurance. I mean, there was nothing.  It was the olden days. But for  some unknown reason, I mean,  we seemed to sleep pretty good  at night."  Nutrition  notes  QUESTION: I know that folic  acid is essential.

Magnesium deficiency is uncommon, although it  may be seen in chronic alcoholism  as well as severe renal disease,  or in severe malnutrition.  Coast News, May 24,1977.  Come cry with me  Dear Ann:  I know the problem I have is  a common one - my dear man  snores. I would like to sleep  alone, but that makes him fume,  I then have to stay awake for  hours. Is there a solution?  Starry Eyed  Dear Starry:  The closeness you have and  seem to preserve in a double bed  is worth a little experiment.  The most common way is to turn  him on his side and try to get  him to form the habit of sleeping  on his side. It seems sleeping  on one's back is the most conducive to resonance. I do mean  resonance. Some people can be  heard all through the house. One  alternative is ear plugs, available at drug stores. I did hear of  an offbeat solution, put your partners hand in cold water. If might  stop him, if he doesn't wet the  bed. So, take a hot milk and  honey, grab your ear plugs and  if you have an amorous partner  he can sneak up on you. No more  staring in the dark, you have my  sympathy.  Dear Ann Napier  My trouble is, we haven't been  together very long. I'm still a  bit embarrased to undress in  front of my lover. When we are  together for sex, he wants to  try outlandish positions. I can't  get off, standing on my head or  balanced precariously like a  stork on a log. Am I being unreasonable? The Pretzel  Dear Pretzel:  I have to break up just thinking  about it. It's a very real problem  to you, so I'll say, when first  together there's so much excitement and pleasure even holding  hands. That the need for stimulus is less and the far-out positions can wait, people soon become at ease with each other, and  that is the time the experimenting  can be fun. It seems there are  so many stages a love affair  goes through - togetherness and  tenderness and time will solve  your problem and feelings of  uneasiness.

Wrist-wrestling tournament May 28th  Wristwrestling has been  around for a long time. Friends  have tested each other by wrist-  wrestling; fathers and sons have  tested each other; feuds have  been settled by wristwrestling.  It's still around. Now it has a new  face. Tournament wristwrestling!  The Sunshine Coast Wristwrestling Championships will see  just that: a getting together of  fathers and sons in each weight  class to match themselves in  tournament. The winners will  be invited and sponsored to the  Western Invitational Tournament  in Vancouver in September and  success will earn $1,000 and an  invitation to the World Championships in Petaluma, California  on October 8th.  It could be - and recent World  Champions have all been from  small communities - that some  father or son from the Sunshine  Coast will go all the way.  The tournament referee has  lived on the Coast for nine years.  Paul Peter Klachan, a retired  middleweight champion, said:  "I'm retired and glad of it because some of the best men I've  seen are on the Sunshine Coast...  The Sunshine Coast could very  well have a World Champion.  Either way it should be very, very  exciting, the meeting on May  28th."  Organizers for the event report  that the response has been surprising. Two hundred seats will  be available at small charge.  Television coverage will be available. .  Contestants may weigh-in between 9:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m.  The events will start at 1:30 p.m.  Phone 883-2596 to enter or fill  out the entry form on this page.  Other highlights of the day will  include the open challenge of  Dan Grant's 12-man tug-of-war  team from Powell River and jackpots and trophies for each weight  division winner.

By Michael Nntland  " Having just returned from  vacation I was astounded to find  that nothing much had changed.  With one notable exception. One  of the major corners in Gibsons  Village had had its appearance  altered quite substantially by  the simple expedient of changing  the windows., It occured to me  how easy it would be to change  the character of a small town or  village almost overnight.  During our holiday we passed  through Osoyoos where the town  has adopted a Spanish theme and  to their credit have managed to  persuade the majority of merchants (and some private citizens)  to build or put up facades corresponding with the style. In fact,  they bodly announce as you come  to the town limits that you are  entering "The Spanish Capital  of Canada". Having seen photographs of Gibsons - some taken  less than twenty years ago - it  is evident that this area had a  building style all of it's own,  that was extremely attractive.  Looking around one can still see  instances remaining, though most  are delapidating shadows of their  former selves.  Having seen in Osoyoos the  effect of a sympathetic theme,  (whether you care for the style  or not), it would seem to me that  Gibsons would be the ideal place  to construct a "West Coast  Village"!  The Beachcombers provide a  lot of entertainment for the folks  in this area but their latest stunt,  the   much   vaunted   'Jet   Boat  Jump' turned into an excercise  in frustration.   Obviously with a  one-shot deal like that they have  to be meticulous with setting up  their equipment.  When I arrived  for my shift, the rear of the cafe  was jammed with people and expectations were high.    An hour  later a few die-hards remained,  one of whom, after waiting half  the day, missed the whole thing  while answering the call of nature. Win some, lose some.  " Tongue-in-cheek   Department:  Apparently the elevators on the  new ferries have proved troublesome   and   when   one   on   the  'Queen of Coquitlam' broke down  recently, two high-ranking B.C.  Ferry administrators were stuck  overnight.  VZJISSfFIBB JID5  PLANT A TREE  KEEPAAAA  4u CANADA  GROWINGS  APLANTAA  AATREESA  AA<4A A if _.

From the Fire Hall  Editor's Note: The following is  the first in a series of fire-fighting  tips provided by local fire departments. This first series will concern itself with fire hazards in  mobile homes.  FIGHTING THE MOBILE HOME  FIRE  Many fire fighters respond with  a great deal of apprehension to  an alarm for a fire in a mobile  home. Their anxieties may be  eased if they have a greater knowledge of some of the problems  and design characteristics of  mobile homes.  Major problems with mobile  homes include the extensive use  of many forms of plastics, the  open area that extends the length  of the house between the metal  roof and ceiling, and wind-tunnel  effect in single-wide units due to  hall design, and the fact that the  home usually is completely encased by metal, except for the  floor. On the other hand, some  characteristics of mobile homes  also can be advantageous to the  fire fighter.  Burning Plastics:  Soaring prices for natural  materials have forced manufacturers of bedding, furniture,  cabinets, plumbing fixtures, and  other components to resort to  incorporating ever increasing  amounts of plastic materials into  their products. These plastics  also are attractive to the manufacturer because  they   save  on  weight and can be formed at low  cost into attractive designs.  Toxic gases and smoke produced by the combustion of plastics pose definite problems for  the fire fighter. The quantity  and nature of the smoke and  gases depend greatly upon the  type of fire, the chemical composition of the plastic involved,  and the available ventilation.  Polyvinyl chloride, commonly  called PVC, is used mainly in  mobile .homes for drain, waste,  and vent pipes and fittings.  Where more toughness, heat resistance, and stiffness are required, PVC is chlorinated to  form polyvinyl dichloride or CP���  VC CPVC pipe is used for water  distribution   systems    in    many  mobile homes. CPVC is not easily  ignited, but will soften while  burning, producing acrid fumes  and a white smoke. Chloride is  released as hydrogen chloride;  only 1500 parts per million of this  gas are considered a fatal concentration after a few minutes of  exposure.  Polyurethane is used by many  mobile home manufacturers in  upholstered furniture and bedding, and for carpet padding.  Polyurethane is combustible.  When burning, it drips and gives  off a dense, black smoke laden  with carbon particles.  Polyethylene is widely used for  vapor barriers in roofs and, in  some cases, floor systems of mobile homes. Polyethylene vapor  barriers vary in thickness from 2  mm to 6 mm. Polyethylene is  easily ignitable, drips when  burning, has little smoke development, and smells somewhat like  paraffin.  Polybutylene. is now becoming  widely accepted for hot and cold  water distribution systems in  mobile homes. It is a slow-burning material that bubbles and  drips slightly when under combustion. It generates an acnd,  heavy, black smoke, and gives off  particles of carbon. It is somewhat irritating to the eyes and  nose.  Plastics play a big part in mobile home construction. When  entering a mobile home that is  involved in fire, the fire fighter  should wear full protective clothing and self-contained breathing  apparatus.

P��C__S  1st/  2/S*     f^fe?  Th,  IN At,  I  Communication and the  family! This beautiful Family Room in the  by Alice McSweeney,  Psychologist  Communication is a broad  subject and one very much in  vogue at the present. For those  wishing to become involved in  a comprehensive study of the  subject there are many books,  lectures, seminars, and games  devoted to communication. During Family Month I would like  to look briefly at communication  with the family.  Concern is often expressed that  a family is  not communicating.  This is seldom the case.     The  communication may be  unsatisfying and confusing but people  who live and spend time together  are constantly giving  messages  back   and   forth   to   each   other  through   words,   facial   expressions, gestures and   "body language". A dead silence between  people usually close to each other  certainly communicates a  great  deal.     Often a real problem in  communication lies  in our own  unwillingness to let others communicate to us what they really  mean and feel.  At the same time  we   must   assess   our ���. personal  willingness to communicate openly in matters close to us.  Young children usually communicate their wants and feelings  directly. This can sometimes be  an embarrassment to adults who  try to teach the children to modify  their natural openness in order  not to offend people around them.  While it will benefit a child to  learn how to get along smoothly  with others, it is important thatr  he not learn to believe that his  ideas and feelings are unacceptable and of no interest to others.  Lack of interest on the part of  the parents in what a child wants  to communicate can lead to a  child giving up efforts to share  his thoughts and feelings with  his family.  One of the most basic elements  of family communication can be  distorted or stifled by our own  eagerness to have a person tell  us what we want to hear, not what  they want to tell us. If we really  want someone to communicate  honestly with us we must show  that we are willing to accept the  communication he gives. We do  not have to like it, or agree with  it, but we must attempt to understand it from his point of view,  not ours. There is nothing more  effective in blocking communication than the feeling that nobody really cares what we say  and the suspicion that whatever  we say will be interpreted only  from the other person's point of  view. While a genuine interest  in understanding another person  cannot guarantee good communication between people, the lack of  concern for another's viewpoint  guarantees that good communication will not take place.  In addition to an eagerness to  hear what the rest of the family  says, communication is encouraged by our willingness to have  others understand us. Children  learn most by seeing and hearing  those close to them. If parents  are comfortable in sharing their  experiences with the family then  children learn to share themselves more easily.  Families having difficulty in  communication may find it helpful to spend some time in activities planned to encourage the  sharing of ideas. Taking some  extra time to sound out each  family member on an idea regarding the home can be productive, both of ideas and feelings on the part of the family  members that their opinions really matter. In our busy lives we  often give rather low priority to  simply spending time talking together. How many times do we  cut off a communication from a  family member because we give  higher priority to listening to  what is being said on a T.V. program? We are all guilty. Discussing with friends how they  have encouraged communication  in their families can be helpful  and lead to more ideas for you to  explore.  If you have a deep concern  regarding communications or  other family problems, the Mental Health Centre is available  to you. No referral is necessary  and you can make an appointment by calling the office directly.  St. Mary's Sechelt Auxiliary  by J. Lear  Twenty-eight ladies of the  Sechelt auxiliary to St. Mary's  Hospital met on May 12th at  2:00 p.m. in St. Hilda's Hall  with Billie Steele, president,  conducting the meeting.  One of the main topics of discussion was our up-coming luncheon on June 2nd from 11 am  to 2 pm. Special attention is  drawn to the change of locale.  Please note that the luncheon will  be held at the St. Hilda's Church  Hall instead of the Senior Citizens' Hall. A shuttle car service  will be provided to transport  gui'sts to and from the Trail Bay  Mall and St. Hilda's. Auxiliary  members arc asked to be at the  hall at 9:00 a.m. and, if possible,  t<> bnng bridge tables and serving  �� ivs. The telephone committee  '-ill be contacting members re  . ontributions, etc.  Biilie Steele gave a detailed  report on the recent co-ordinating  council meeting. She stressed the  fact that volunteers for the summer months are urgently needed  in the physio department.    Any  member who can put in some  time in this important area please  contact Muriel Eggins at 885-  2422.  Suggestions for the future expansion of the gift shop will be  most welcome. If you have any  ideas in that regard please call  Billie Steele at 885-2023.  We were most pleased to learn  that 17 Candystripers have received awards for continued efforts in their work at the hospital.  Our congratulations and sincere  thanks are extended to them.  Margaret Humm spoke of this  year's successful bridge sessions  and announced that a duplicate  tournament will be held starting  in September.  Muriel Eggins submitted an  informative and comprehensive  report on the recent B.C.H.A.  and B.C.H.A.A. convention  which she attended in May. In  reference to a workshop at which  the discussion centered on "The  Importance of Co-ordinating  Health Care in the Community",  she noted that on the Sunshine  Coast most of the recommenda  tions are already in practice. She  reminded us that the last orientation course of this season will  be held at the hospital at 1:20  on May 30th. Any in-service  worker who has not attended the  course should take this opportunity to familiarize herself with the  hospital.
