 :t VT '7  W.. ������<'���  Tiie  tunstiine  Published at Gibsons, B.C.  15* per copy on newsstands  Serving the Sunshine Coast since 1945  Council requests water care  At last week's council meeting in Gibsons, Alderman Metcalf  requested that the press inform the public of the need to cut  down on their water consumption for the next few weeks.  "I cannot stress the importance of this," he said. There  is not an actual water shortage as such, but at the present time  there is only one pump for the area, and it has a heavy demand  placed on it. In May of this year it pumped 2.8 million gallons  and the village engineers, Dayton and Knight, have suggested  that the operation of Well #2 be a top priority. The second  pump should be ready to go in a few weeks and will be able to  cover the demand.  According to Census Canada, the population of Gibsons as  of May is 2,074, up 103 from last year. Alderman Metcalf  queried this figure, by his own calculations it is closer to 2,500.  The village'is conducting its own census to determine the accuracy of the study.  President Joe Kampman of-the Gibsons Lions  watches as Bruno Gerussi and Bob Clothier  of the Beachcombers TV show receive certifi  cates attesting that they are Honorary Members  of Lions International. Mayor Larry Labonte  of Gibsons and CBC Production Manager, Paddy  Moore look tin.  Gibsons Lions hear of successful year  Before a packed dinner meeting of over two hundred people  at the Casa Martinez on Saturday,  June 11th, outgoing Lions Club  President, Joe Kampman, outlined a most successful year for  the Gibsons Lions Club.  The assembled crowd of Lions  members, .wives,;.., and visiting7  dignitaries learned that '.. the  Gibsons Lions Club had been  awarded the Inspirational Award "  of Lionism over sixty other clubs  in their district, which stretches  from the Queen Charlotte Islands in the north and encompasses the entire Lower Mainland.  Head table guests at the dinner  included Dick Pierce, District  Governor   Elect,   and   his   wife  Jean; Zone Chairman Joe Mc-  Cann, who had been named the  Outstanding Zone Chairman in  the district for the past year, the  zone including five clubs from  Texada Island to.Gibsons; Past  Zone Chairman Larry Boyd who  officiated at the induction of new  .members; ':.ilnrcpmwg^:J&esi4$&<>  of the Gibsons Lions Club, Dick  Blakeman; Club Treasurer Floyd  McGregor, and acting Secretary  Jack White.  Among the new members inducted were Bruno Gerussi and  Robert Clothier of the TV series  The Beachcombers. Gerussi and  Clothier became members of the  Gibsons Lions Club and also  Honorary    Members    of    Lions  International. Both men expressed themselves delighted at the  honour. Other new members  inducted were Jack Ross, Regional Manager of Canada Manpower, and Vic Wager;  .Other out of town guests were  Patrick ;Horn; of the-?Vancouver  'Ga$oWn'-��'Li6ns^  Saunders, Zone .Chairman of  the Lower Mainland Zbhe; and  B.J. Pahdiit Singh-with his wife  Marlene. Mr. Pandut Singh is  a Lion from New Delhi, India.  Also 'present was Ken Fowler,  President-Elect of the Vancouver  Waterfront Lions Club,  Out-going President Kampman, in his outline of the club's  activities over the past year said  that $18,924 had been raised by  the Lions Club members during"  the past year and $14,690 had  been donated back to the community in needy areas. In assessing the nature of the Lions  Club work, Kampman said, *"It  is not always the big money prbT .  jecfs*wj*ich arev ther most imp>^~-  tant. 0It far the-people projects.'*"  Among the varied projects undertaken by the Gibsons Lions Club  in the last year, Kampman  listed support of the C.N.LB.,  support of the mentally'1 ill; a  walker for an elderly lady; and  a fund to send mentally retarded  children to Camp Squamish.  All in all,  a most successful  year.for the Gibsons Lions Club.  Application turned down  Sechelt children ill because of chemicals?  The' question of chemical  sprays raised its ugly head again  at last week's Sechelt Council  meeting. Mr. Allan Ayres of  Porpoise Bay. spoke for his  neighbour, Nick . Van Velsen  whose two children are both sick  from drinking from their water  supply. In Mr. Ayres' opinion  the poison is pentachlorphinal.  Three power poles have been  treated with this chemical and it  is now seeping into the drinking  water.  Mr. Ayres traced the .poison  to its source with the aid of documented evidence from the Department of Health and described  to council how a short-term  solution could be achieved by.  blocking a culvert and diverting  the run-off over unpopulated  areas.  Pentachlorphinal builds up a  concentration in egg yolks, Mr.  Ayres had to destroy 1,000 eggs.  Van Velsen complained that he  had been plagued by minor sick  ness over the past two years.  Ayres said that after drinking  the water since 1959, he had  taken to walking up the road to  a neighbour and carrying back  his own supply.  It appeared to this reporter  that the council did not view this  problem with any discernible  sense of urgency. Mayor Nelson  knew of the poison and described  it as "Very good. It kills everything." He could see no difficulty  in   blocking   the  culvert  Mayor Larry Labonte officiates at the ribbon-cutting ceremony marking the official opening  of the new Gibsons Ambulance Building. Also in the picture are Alderwoman Lorraine  Goddard, Alderman Stuart Metcalfe, and Mr. and Mrs. Vic Eckstein representing the  Senior Citizens.  and solving the immediate problem. :  In other council business, a  letter was received from Glenmont Holdings asking council if  it could., clear up the debris left  on the Hydro right-of-way and  add the costs to the companys'  tax account. This wasjfelt to be  a viable solution. Council said  it would check into some of the  surrounding property and see if  it could be cleaned up in the  same fashion.  Shop-Easy was asked to hold  off on the construction of a  sprinkler system on the highway  side of their parking lot. The  village has plans in the works for  building curbs along this area  and it seemed advisable to dovetail all construction so as not to  run into unnecessary problems.  When the Trail Bay Mall was  constructed, Sechelt did not have  enough water pressure for the  installation of a sprinkler system  in the mall itself. This is no  longer the case, and council felt  that this should now be looked  into.  Trail bikes on the power lines  are still putting some residents  up in arms. Village Clerk Tom  Wood was asked to contact  Victoria and enlist their aid in  forming a by-law.  Art Display-  in Library  Paintings by Kay Wells,  Roberts Creek artist, will be on  display at the Gibsons Public  Library during June and July.  ,_.. Mark Ranniger .was turned  down on This .application for a  permit to start up a boat repair  shop in. the . old Pazco fiberglass buidling above Seaview  Road. It was felt by Alderman  Hume that since a body shop  had  recently  been   refused,   it  Pender must  fight-  Lockstead  The people of the Pender Harbour-Egmont area must continue  fighting to see that their medical  clinic is not taken away, MLA  Don Lockstead told the annual  meeting of the Pender Harbour  and District Ratepayers Association in Madeira Park last Sunday. Lockstead reminded the  meeting that the medical clinic  had been brought to Pender  Harbour only through the united  effort of the overwhelming majority of the area's, residents, and  warned that it could be lost at  any time if support slackened.  Although Lockstead made no  direct reference to the clinic's  problems, it was understood  there has been a letter from Victoria suggesting that the Pender  clinic has not been receiving  enough use to justify a full-time  doctor. The problem of arranging  with Sechelt doctors to provide  cross-coverage for Pender Harbour patients at St. Mary's Hospital also continues unresolved,  with the result that the Pender  doctor must work unreasonable  hours.  Lockstead also told the meeting  that he didn't think construction  on Highway 101 north of Secret  Cove has been stopped "because  this riding has an NDP member".  The Highways budget has been  reduced to under $300 million,  he said, and highway construction  has been reduced throughout the  province. He added the the Highways Minister Alex Fraser has  recently promised him highways  spending would resume in this  area.  "As to the schedule, let me  put it this way, "Lockstead said,  "Look for action some time before the next election."  Continued on Page Eight  t .would be. unfair for council to  ;' ^giVeifr^iim^^  else to carry on a .commercial  operation in a non-commercially  zoned area. - In Alderman Metcalf's opinion this was a different  situation. It would not be as  noisy  as  an  auto body shop  -  100 years -  still dancing  Edmond Juneau celebrated his  100th birthday at the Sechelt  Legion on June the 9th. Listening  to his life story is like opening a  history book on the Canadian  West.  His father was the government  agent for the Cree Indians during  the Louis Riel rebellion, Edmond  remembers the dangers of the  time and it has given him a  healthy respect for unity in  Canada.'  In the '98 Gold Rush he headed  for the Yukon with his wife and  baby son, and spent what would  have been a lifetime for most  people in the North. He pushed  pack trains up to Dawson; was  a dredge master on the Klondike  during the '30's, where one  season alone brought in over  4 million dollars in gold. These  were the days when a hotel room  and three meals were a dollar and  a schooner of beer cost you 5$.  Mr. Juneau was widowed in  1957. His wife Catherine had  followed in the family footsteps  and had been an Indian Agent  in the North for the area. The  family was a major presence up  there, in fact, Juneau Alaska  was named after them.  When someone has lived an  adventurous and full life for as  long as Edmond has, it would be  expected that he would be content to sit back and take a back  seat in life. Not so. The fiddler  struck up a tune and he was up  with his baby sister, Marie Van  Tighem, a mere 95 year old  youngster and waltzed her around  the floor.     .  When wished a happy birthday  he replied by wishing as many  for everyone.  An honoured guest at the party  was Gerald Mossman, who recently celebrated being 101 years  young.  which was the main complaint  in the past, and if the property  was to be left unattended it  would soon turn into an eyesore.  Mayor Labonte reminded council  that a promise had been made to  the owner of the property that  he would be helped in any way  possible to get some return from  his investment.  -The . usual procedures were  waved aside and Mr. Ranniger  gave a prepared presentation  to the  members.     He   pointed  ,. out that he had already spent  two thousand dollars on two  boats he planned to fix up and  that his operation would not inconvenience  the  people  in  the  , surrounding area.  A vote was taken, it was a split  decision, with Metcalf and Metzler for,, and Hume and Goddard  against granting a permit.  It was agreed that the-members of council would get together the next day after a planning committee and discuss the  problem further. At the meeting  it was decided that if the owner  applied for a rezoning permit y  the chances were that it would be  granted, ^and this would enable  Mr. Ranniger to operate on the  property.  Parking  A    representative    from    the  Gibsons Harbour Business Association asked council for an update   on   the   parking   by-laws.  Final word was still being awaited  from their solicitor, but Alderman  Hume was able to say that the  by-laws should be passed some*  vr-time^^WsTsu^nmer,. and .^will be  7 enforced   by"' the   dog   catcher,  Doug Elson.   It'was pointed out  to council that apart from lack  of space, one of the problems  was   people   going   fishing,   or  to work at the mill and leaving  their  cars   downtown   all   day.  This would be stopped, Alderman Hume said, when a time  limit, probably of two hours,  was brought in.  Local businessmen are looking  into the feasibility of paid parking  in the village, but for the present  one possibility that came up was  to mark out parking spots along  one side of School Road.  Because the by-law has not  been passed yet, does not necessarily give motorists immunity,  last week the R.C.M.P. issued a  ticket to someone parked too near  the stop sign at the post office.  Other  Excavation will begin for the  swimming pool on the 24th of  this month and completion is  expected sometime in November.  The council chambers were  very warm, but half way through  the meeting the door to the veranda had to be closed, since it was  difficult to hear over the noise  pf.speeding-carsv>���-���-���--���-��������� ���-""  Trust Fund  set up  A memorial trust fund has been  set up for John Volen of Gibsons  who was killed so tragically a  few weeks ago in a power-line  accident.

Oil  We would particularly draw your attention to the series of articles beginning  in this issue ofthe Coast News by Howard  White of Pender Harbour. White is most  concerned about the possibility, indeed  it would almost seem to be a certainty,  of an oil spill along our coast from the  projected giant tanker traffic which  seems imminent. The articles are well-  researched, thoughtful, highly concerned and chillingly effective, at least  in this editor's opinion who has, be it  admitted, had the opportunity of reading  the entire series.  It would appear that the only reason  that the tankers would be routed along  the coast of British Columbia to destinations in Northern Washington and even  possibly to Kitimat, is for the;very good  reason that the western states of the  United States want as little to do with  them as possible. This is by no means  unique in Canadian history. In 1963  when the so-called Bo-marc missile  crisis was at its height the Liberal  Government under Lester Pearson defeated the government of John Diefen-  baker partially by saying that they would  honour the commitments made to the  Americans to arm the missiles based in  Northern Ontario and Northern Quebec  with nuclear warheads. This despite  the fact that it was admitted by the  Americans at the time that the only  possible function such missile sites could  have would be to draw some of the theoretical Russian fire away from the industrial  heartland  of the  U.S.A.,   the  north-eastern industrialized states.  Canada was to be just a decoy target  for the protection of the U.S.A. And so  it is with the oil tanker routes.  In the gold creeks of the Klondike,  American miners in recent years have  come in in April with bulldozers and  mined systematically and zealously until  September when they left taking all the  gold they had found directly out of the  country. If a Canadian miner wandered  over the line into Alaska and put as much  as a gold-pan in an American creek he  was liable to be jailed.  When are Canadians going to realize  that they have legitimate self-interests  and that it is not rabid anti-Americanism  to protect those self-interests in their  dealings with their giant neighbour?  The Mexican government long ago took  far more effective measures against  total exploitation by the U.S.A. than  Canada has even dared to think about  yet. When will Canadians wake up?  Over the next three weeks through  White's awareness and research you will  be informed in the pages of this newspaper of what can possibly happen to  our entire environment as a result of  the drive of the U.S.A. oil companies to  move oil along our coast. It is not a  matter of dying ducks, as White points  out, but a question which affects our  whole coastal economy. It could happen  here only because the people of California  and Washington states are determined  it's not going to happen there. Think  about it. Canadians.  Chemicals  Recent visitors to Gibsons from Inverness, Scotland, Malcolm and Biddie  Corrance were comparing our area to  the Western Highlands of Scotland  and said something very interesting.  "Both places," they say, "are so very  beautiful that they have a soporific effect  on the people who live there, almost  hypnotic." It's the effect that Alfred  Tennyson was after describing in his  poem "The Lotus Eaters" in which he  describes a land where the inhabitants  were, so lulled with the beauty of their  surroundings and their pleasure-taking  that they were oblivious to anything else.  Surely this must be the land of the  Lotus Eaters. Not only is there the question of the oil tankers just discussed, but  the question of the use of herbicidal  chemicals and their possible deleterious  effects on the creatures, including  people, who live here. Now from Sechelt  comes a story of two youngsters poisoned  by drinking water from the tap in their  kitchen at home. There is no great  outcry from the citizenry. The mayor"  of Sechelt says of the chemical in question, almost unbelievably, "It's very  good.   It kills everything."   B.C. Hydro  merrily goes its way in the use of defoliants on the power through which all  potable water runs. The so-called Minister of the Environment, shades of 1984,  stoutly defends a decision to use the  same chemicals in the Okanagan lakes.  There's a definite air of unreality about  it all.  In a conversation I had with a gentleman entitled something like Environmental Protection Engineer in the B.C.  Hydro hugeness, he explained to me for  almost an hour what was being used  and how it could not possibly be harmful.  The whole thing, of course, much weakened by his confession that "...it's all  by guess and by God, of course, we really  don't know." Meanwhile two children  are ill in Sechelt and there are rumours  of babies born deformed possibly as a  result of the mothers drinking water  with defoliants in it. There is a lady in  Hopkins Landing who was warned by  B.C. Hydro officials not to eat the blackberries on the power line.  Meanwhile we take our pleasures and  prefer to ignore anything which smacks  of the unpleasant. We may be doing so  at our peril.  from the files of Coast News  5YEARS AGO  Somewhere in Sechelt Inlet, Ken  Gurney hooked a 39 pound spring. After  an hour of playing the fish, Ken, much to  his astonishment, realized he was not  the only fisherman who had the same fish  hooked. On the tail ofthe fish" was a large  seal who decided he could land the fish  too. Ensued a tug of war.. .Ken won!  10 YEARS AGO  Editorial paragraph: With growing  demands for increased food supplies it  would appear that the despised dogfish  could prove to be an economic asset  instead of an undesirable demon in our  coastal waters.  15 YEARS AGO  June the third, the day of the Dogfish  Derby was rough and not many boats  braved the weather, still 258 were  caught. The federation hopes that by  starting this derby, other clubs will  follow and rid the waters of this objectionable fish.  20 YEARS AGO  Langdale Terminus opens: Black Ball  Ferries new Langdale Ferry slip was  inaugurated when Mrs. Don Clarke,  granddaughter of the original Langdale  family after which the new port has  been named, cut the ribbon across the  ramp.  25 YEARS AGO  You can't buy a house for 35$; you can  sell a house for 35$...by using the Coast  News Classifieds!

The North Road is shown in this Helen McCall photo, seeming to end beyond its lone  occupant at the Reed crossing. In actual fact, this was West Howe Sound's first "highway". During the 1890's, shingle-bolts were hauled down it by wagon. Early in this  century, when the Burns family moved from the foot of the mountain to the mouth of  Langdale Creek, they were able to travel the course it still follows. Until another route  was pushed through along the waterfront, only the North Road linked Hopkins' and Gibsons Landing by land. Photo courtesy Marie Scott (nee Burns) and Elphinstone Pioneer  Museum. L.R.Peterson  Musings  John Burnside  In line with an editorial I read  last week that seemed to claim  that physical fitness was sweeping the entire Sunshine Coast -  an overstatement if ever I heard  one - I'd like to give further  evidence of my acquaintanceship  with the manly arts (or should I  say personly arts nowadays) of  self-torture designed to render us  all glowing and attractive, mentally alert and full of whatnots.  Contrary to a fair body of public  evidence, I have been a secret  fitness freak all my life. All my  life and everywhere I've lived one  of the ritual things that I do is  find - where the pleasant walks  are. An ideal place to live, as  far as I'm concerned, is a place  where you can wander out of your  front door for the obligatory dog  walk with your mind on other  things and pause with fresh surprise each time you stop to .think  which direction your steps should  take, suddenly and freshly re-  aware that in whichever direction  lies serene enchantment.  As 'a matter of fact I've just  wandered out of my mental door  to find that I've come to an equivalent place in the writing of  the column. There are two or  three little paths that go from  here I'd like to muse down. Perhaps I might be forgiven if I  subject my patient readers to a  series of musings on the subject  of fitness, hbwever ironic and  unlikely the source may seem.  Let's go off in this direction  then on this occasion and see  where it takes us. It would seem  that fitness to me, judging from  the first paragraph is a business  of secretive self-torture. Now  that sounds like an unlovely and  an unhappy business but it isn't  at all. I'll try to justify.  I have a horror you see of the  kind of deadly serious, extroverted drive for fitness that goes  jogging around the West End of  Vancouver in shorts or 'sweat  pants, for instance. Whether it's  an overly developed sense of the  absurd or whatever it is, I cringe  when I see a city jogger. Surely  the state of a man's innards is  his own concern and flambuoyant  public care of them seems to me  to lack taste, or even decorum, a  seldom-used word. There's a  kind of solemn public assurance  of doing the right thing about  joggers which unnerves me. Nobody should be that certain  they're right. Not ever.  I seek my sanity and my physical fitness in the same way - by  walking where the people aren't.  My secrecy about my fitness  rituals is not a matter of shame  but delight in being solitary in  a lovely place, away from the  hurly-burly of the people and the  scrimmage of their appetites.  As for the fitness quest, I'd like  to be so subtly secret that even  I am unaware of it while it's  happening. Set the internal  monitor on walk and then let the  mind wander, for what is freedom  if not an unfettered and uncluttered mind?  My friend Jimmy Vallance in  Fernie, whom I've known since  we were asked to leave the boy  scouts in 1949 for irreverent behaviour, represents the other side  of the coin.     I can  remember  meeting  him  on  top   of  Cumnock hill on his bike coming from  Glasgow one sunny, hot day in  the early fifties.    He had come  the thirty odd miles from Glasgow  in record time he informed us,  and in truth his beet-red face and  the    dripping    perspiration    all  spoke of prodigious effort.    As  it happened the three of us were  on a kind of little day-long cycling  tour of the villages of the area  and had cycled farther than Jimmy or  that  occasion   and  had  also climbed the highest hill on  Ayrshire,  none of it in  record  time.      Fitness   without   masochism, if you please. If it doesn't  have more going for it than just  the pain in your legs, forget it,  is my advice.    I mean Vallance  is the only man I've ever heard of  whose answer to a massive hangover is to run a bath-tub of cold  water and immerse himself - a  feat I admire but have no earthy  wish to emulate.     He's talking  about possibly coming down to  visit me this summer - typically  he's going to cycle the six hundred  and fifty  miles  from  the  Crdwsnest   Pass   to  the   Coast.  Don't mistake me, I'm going to  be delighted to see him but I'll  stick  to  taking  my  little  daily  walks and we'll  see who lasts  the longest.  The pattern for my walking was  set with an even earlier friend,  one Martin Kiltie. After Sunday  School and Church and Sunday  dinner, oh ordered days, Martin  and I used to escape in the afternoons and wander till dusk. We  swopped stories as we went,  adventure sories featuring  pirates and cowboys and big city  detectives. We told them in  chapters and made them up as  we went along, hearing with  interest and absorption the other  fellow's chapter and effortlessly  picking up the thread of our own  tale when our turn came. In the  course of these Sunday ramblings  which were a tradition for ten  years with us, the stories deepening in sophistication with even  hints of sex appearing in them towards the end but always boyish  and adventurous, we would walk  perhaps twenty miles through  the lovely Ayrshire countryside  and be completely unaware that  we were doing it.  Of course the whole delicate  marvellous mechanism .which is  the body should be worked to  be at its best. The blood should  course throughout the body not  stuggle through fatty capillaries  occasionally like sluggish swamp  rivers. But it is my conviction  that the ache in the muscles can  come like the glow of fatigue,  noticed only in the tranquillity  of rest.  So I'm secretive about my  fitness things because it suits me  so. My walks balance the social  with the solitary as well as activity  with inactivity. As for the self-  torture aspect, well the inertia of  indolence must be overcome and  the body made to work if it is to  function well, but it has been my  study to make that work as  pleasantly painless and unself-  conscious as I can manage it.  Fitness may not be sweeping  the Sunshine Coast, but my friend  Peter Trower has gone camping  at the Skookumchuck and if some  respect for the outdoors and fitness lurks in the hearts of even  apparently decadent poets and  editors something's out there  rustling in the summer leaves.  Slings & Arrows  George Matthews  There is a fellow I work with  at school named Brian Butcher.  Brian is a nice guy, but like you  and me he wouldn't normally be  worth writing about until he retired, was elected mayor or else  robbed a bank or something. But  a couple of weeks ago something  happened to Brian that I think  makes him worth a few lines - and  again, just like you and me, when  I started asking Brian a few questions about himself, I found a  pretty interesting and exceptional  character.  The thing that happened to  Brian Butcher was that he was  hired as the new Principal of  Sechelt Elementary School. This  is interesting for a number of  reasons: first, I think Sechelt  parents would like to know something about the new Principal of  their children's school; second,  Brian is going to have the difficult  task of taking over from one of  the area's most successful and  respected school administrators,  Sam Reid, and third, after a  period in which school administrators have generally been  brought in from outside the district, Brian is a local teacher.  Brian came to Elphinstone  Secondary three years ago from a  place called Dinsmore, Saskatchewan with wife Emma, son  Geoff and daughter Janet. I  don't know about you but I can't  think of a better place to come  from than Dinsmore, Saskatchewan and now that he's here he  sounds as though he's going to  keep it that way.  Asking Butcher about himself  is a strange experience. For  example, when I asked him about  his childhood he told me that he  was born in Kalgan, Outer Mongolia and spent a couple of years  in a Japanese prison camp as  a child. Naturally I figured this  was another, "I'm not who I  seem to be, I'm really the long  lost son of a fabulously wealthy  Kuwaiti oil sheik'' stories. But  as the tale unfolds the reality is  more unusual than any fictional  creation.  It seems Brian's father was a  Pentacostal missionary who worked in Mongolia. Brian was born  there in 1940, went through the  Japanese invasion, was imprisoned with his family, returned  with his family to Southampton  England in 1946 and came back  to China the next year just in time  to be caught up in the Chinese  civil war.  Having slipped away from the  Chinese communists, Brian's dad  took the family first to India then  to the homeland of his former  captors - the same captors who  apparently had been responsible  for some pretty rough treatment  of some of his father's friends  during the invasion of Japan.  If Brian Butcher is anything he  is tolerant - one of the most  tolerant, gentle and understanding people I've met and I'm sure  this tolerance must have been  reinforced by living in the cquntry  of his former masters for three  years. He used to ride to school  on one of those sardine cans on  wheels that the Japanese call  trains and the thing he resented  ;:oX'X-x-:-:r:^x-:-:-:<-x-x-:��x^x-:<-X'X-��  PORT MELLON, B.C.  most was that the members of  the occupation force got their own  special compartment with plenty  of room while the Japanese had  to ride stacked like cordwood.  Brian rode with the Japanese.  When Brian was twelve he got  his first look at Canada when his  father took the family to visit  relatives in. Swan River, Manitoba. After a year in Boston,  Mass., Brian's dad returned to  Swan River to become the pastor  ofthe Pentacostal Church and the  family ended, up there more or  less permanently.  Strangely enough, Brian's first  job when he graduated from high  school at seventeen was as a  teacher and the fact that he could  teach school at seventeen says  a lot more about Brian Butcher  than it does, about school teachers  in general. After a year of teaching in a one room school of grades  one to nine, Brian spent a couple  of years surveying and building  roads before going to university  in Saskatoon to study Science.  All that education got him a job  bottling in a Coca Cola plant  where he worked briefly before  taking a teaching job in Saskatchewan where he taught two  years before taking a year of  education in Saskatoon. Two  years teaching in Esterhazy,  Saskatchewan and Brian was  ready to try his hand at running a  school, so he applied for and got  a Principal's job in a combined  elementary-secondary school of  350 students in Dinsmore, Saskatchewan.  After six years as Principal,  Brian and his family came out to  B.C. He was interested in a job  in Port Alberni but by a stroke of  luck ended up at Elphinstone  instead. At Elphinstone, where  he is affectionately known as  "Boom Boom'' because of his  athletic skill, Brian has worked as  both science teacher and counsellor.  Following Sam Reid at Sechelt  Elementary will not be easy, as  Brian himself pointed out. Sam  has helped make Sechelt not only  a successful school but a happy  and lively place as .well. He says  he plans to let things run as they  are at Sechelt until he gets the  feel of the place. He is similar  to Sam in many ways, particularly  where love and respect for children is concerned and if there is  anyway to make Sechelt Elementary an even better place Brian is  the person to help do it.  Like many of our local teachers  Brian is a pretty swell person.  He's a darn good teacher, he's an  excellent volleyball coach, he  coaches a boy's baseball team,  is the Superintendent of a Sunday  School, where he also teaches and  drives the Sunday School bus and  he's not a bad fisherman. The  folks in Sechelt are lucky to get  him, those of us at Elphinstone  are sorry to lose him and the  trustees of the school board are  to be congratulated for not only  making a good choice but for  recognizing some of the talent  and experience in their own  school district and showing confidence in their teachers.  Good luck, Mr. Butcher.

Editor:  In a recent issue you published  a letter by Maureen Kirby of the  Human Resource Society complaining of someone selling counterfeit tickets to their dance.  Judging how easy it would be to  trace anyone selling forty tickets  in our small community with only  a few authorized outlets selling  legitimate tickets I think if there  was, in fact, anything other than  an error in calculation, the criminal should be easy to apprehend.  The rip-off that Ms. Kirby failed  to publicize was her not paying  the band the fee that was agreed  upon.  Several months prior to the  dance,*!.was playing with three  other musicians and it was agreed  that we'd play for $200. "Up  the Creek" began playing again  as a larger six piece band and not  wanting to split us up for rehearsals and future engagements, I went to Ms. Kirby two  weeks prior to the dance and requested to increase the fee to  $300 to include the extra players.  Having sold only six tickets to  date she was afraid the dance  would be a financial failure and  felt only secure in increasing the  payment to $250. Knowing the  past success of "Up the Creek"  dances I felt relaxed in agreeing  to a $250 guaranteed base with  the condition that she pay the  full $300 fee if ticket sales were  successful. She agreed to this  arrangement and upon leaving  her office I assured her I wasn't  worried about not getting our full  fee...we have had sell out crowds  at all dances in Roberts Creek.  She was well aware of the agreement and does not deny knowledge of the terms of our verbal  contract.  The night of the dance' (a sell  out crowd) I was paid only $250.  When I mentioned our agreement, Ms. Kirby said, "Well,  we really don't know how we did  yet, until we've added it all up."  And so the following week I  went to see her and was told that  yes, they had successful ticket  sales and had cleared a good  profit'but because Iliad 'broken'  our initial agreement'for a four  piece band (made close to two  months before the dance) she  felt she did not have to comply  with our agreement of two weeks  prior to the dance and we were  "out of luck.. .forget it".  After six years of playing  music on the coast with nothing  more than verbal agreements I  am disconcerted about this incident. The musicians with  whom I play are now considering  whether or not to continue doing  music for community groups with  inexperienced and unreliable  organizers. To all the people who  have supported "Up the Creek"  I say thanks, we love you, you  have helped local musicians and  the community sponsors who put  on dances to raise funds for  worthwhile projects. But at the  point that we musicians are  used for someone else's financial  gain and expected to give services  for next to nothing, I refuse to  continue.

It is an admission that I still read  comic-books at the relatively-  advanced age of forty-seven. I  am aware that this activity is  looked-upon somewhat askance  by certain of my friends. I suspect they feel that I should not  be wasting my time on such  trivia. I pay them little mind  because, quite frankly, I thoroughly enjoy comic-books. The best  of them are a long way from  trivial. Some of the most talented  and imaginative artists and  writers around today are employed full-time in this medium.  Good comics have much in common with good films, the form  to which they are most directly  related. There has been and is,  considerable cross-feed between  the two media. Such renowned  directors as Fredrico Fellini and  Orson Welles were profoundly  infleunced by comic-books.  But I'm starting to sound defensive and its not really nec-  cessary. The finest comic-books  can stand quite well on their own  merit.  Of all the myriad characters  the field has produced since the  first comic-books in all their  pristine crudity, began to appear  on the newsstands in the early  Thirties, perhaps the most remarkable is Conan The Barbarian. Since this title was first  introduced by Marvel Comics in  1970, it has outstripped all the  others, including Superman and  Batman, to become the best-  selling comic-book of all time.  It has also won comicdom's equivalent of the Academy Award,  several years in a row. It is indicative of the character's popularity that he now appears in  two monthly books - one, a regular thirty-cent colour comic; the  other, a magazine-size, black and  white, 'adult' version that is  prefixed THE SAVAGE SWORD  OF and sells for a dollar. Both  versions are produced almost entirely by the maniacally-prolific  team of Roy Thomas - writer and  John Buscema - artist.    Despite  Peter Trower  the killing schedule, they have  managed to maintain an extremely high level of quality.  Although he has reached his  greatest glory in the comic-book  form, Conan the Barbarian did  not originate here. He was first  conceived in the early Thirties  by a pulp-magazine writer called  Robert E. Howard and his origi-  \\mlmmm  nal adventures appeared in the  legendary and long-gone fantasy  magazine Weird Tales. Howard,  a Texan, cranked out an enormous volume of wordage during  his short life. He wrote fiction  of almost every type from westerns to ghost stories and sold them  to the multitude of pulp magazines that proliferated during the  period. Howard also wrote adequate poetry of a conventional  sort but achieved little success  in this idiom. He was a storyteller; a yarnspinner in the old  tradition. Howard was not destined to live beyond the age of  thirty. He was excessively attached to his mother and upon  her death in 1936, he took his  own life. But his creations live  on and his greatest creation by  far, was the redoubtable barbarian named Conan.  Conan belongs to the same  branch of heroic fantasy that  dates back to Ulysses.

Howard, a strong believer  in reincarnation, was subject to  vivid dreams about violent  goings-on in forgotten eras and  it was in part, from these dreams  that the concept of Conan sprang.  His exploits take place in a mythical period long before recorded  history, known as The Hyborian  Age. In this dim time, Eurasia  and Africa comprised one huge  continent and there is no Mediterranean Sea. It is a strange  world of warring city-states and  sinister, decadent kingdoms  where wizardry still flourishes  and antedeluvian monsters from  even remoter ages, lurk in crumbling temples.  On to this bizarre stage, wanders Conan the Barbarian, a  black-maned giant from the wilds  of Cimmeria, a northern land,  roughly equivalent to present-day  Denmark. He is about fifteen  when he first commences his random odessey but he matures  quickly in his harsh surroundings  and becomes an expert swordsman. Conan moves from adventure to wild adventure through  these realms of magic and madness. He battles sadistic tyrants,  malevolent sorcerers and unspeakable creatures from the pits.  Although he generally wins in  the end, he always suffers his  lumps and cuts in the process.  On one occasion, he is actually  crucified but somehow manages  to survive even this painful  indignity. The Hyborian Age is  no place for sissies.  One aspect of Conan's make-up  that undoubtedly gives him appeal is the fact that, despite his  prowess with a sword and great  strength, he possesses most of  the human failings. Between  forays into the haunted hinterlands of one mythmisted region  or another, he is generally found  disporting drunkenly in taverns  with a wench of shady-repute  on either massive knee.   He can  be extremely ill-tempered and  surly on occasion, particularly in  combat. In one instance, when a  beaten adversary begged for  quarter, the enraged Conan responded by literally hacking the  unfortunate wretch into four  sections. But the man is after  all, a barbarian in a dog-eat-dog  world and can perhaps be forgiven such periodic excesses.  Generally he' comes across as a  rather likeable oaf in comparison  with some of the odious foes,  both natural and supernatural,  against which he is constantly  pitted.   .  The immense success of Conan  in comic-book format has resulted  in two companion-magazines that  specialize in the same form of  prehistoric daring-do. One of  these, King Kull, is another  Howard creation that actually  predated Conan but failed to  catch on at the time. His stamping-grounds are the same fanciful land, a thousand years earlier,  just.after the sinking of Atlantis.  The other is Red Sonja, a beauteous but man-hating swords-  woman who exists contemporaneously with Conan. Their  paths frequently cross in one  cyclopean city or another and  they end up battling side by side  against some inhuman horde.  Inevitably, Conan makes a pass  at the fiery Sonja but is always  rebuffed. In one tour-de-force  issue of the Conan colour comic,  an arch-sorcerer called Thoth  Amon conjured King Kull out of  the past and all three characters  met briefly in the same timeframe. It was a memorable session that involved Conan duelling  with his own predecessor.  Virtually every other comic-  publisher in the business has  attempted to cash in on the Conan  phenomenon with ersatz barbarians of every sort but none of  them has managed to last more  than a few derivative issues.  When it comes to blood and gore  in days or yore, Conan and his  cohorts have the field all to themselves.  by Maiyanne West  Prize winners in the 1977 Montreal International Music Competition and the first CBC Radio-  Canada Council Competition for  Amateur Choirs will be honoured  this week.

F. Scott Fitzgerald's classic novel about Hollywood in the 1930's has  been  brought to the screen produced by Spiegel and directed by Kazan.  Pit ponies and movie producers  are featured in the films coming  this week to the Twilight Theatre.  The pit ponies are featured  in another release from the  Disney studios, this one called  The Littlest Horse Thieves. The  film is set around 1914 when  there were 70,000 horses and  ponies used in the British collieries. Today only 242 are used  and only in Durham and South  Wales. The few pit ponies left  are used in small mines where it  would be uneconomical to install  machinery and sometimes in  modern mines a few will be employed for special haulage. They  are adaptable creatures and wonderful because they have an  instinct for danger that is noted  and valued by their drivers.  The film, set in the mining districts of England, stars Alistair .

Scott Fitzgerald  about life in Hollywood during  its glamorous hey-day in the  1930's. The screenplay has been  written by Harold Pinter. Robert  Mitchum appears as the powerful studio head who fears that a  younger man will take the film  empire away from him. Robert  de Niro plays the young production genius that Mitchum  fears.

Berger  This is volume one ofthe recent  Berger Report, a condensation of  more than 30,000 pages of testimony about the proposed pipeline in the Western Arctic. Although it's a government report,  it has become an overnight bestseller. Aside from an interesting  and very readable text, (Something one seldom associates with  government documents), it contains some of the best photographs to come out of the North  in years. Each page is illuminated by them, and for the price of  five dollars the book is an exceptional value just for the pictures  it contains.  At issue here is the gas pipeline, which, if it is completed,  will be !_400 miles long, the  longest in the world. The point of  origin for the line would be in  Prudhoe Bay, Alaska. From  there, it would run east across the  northern Yukon until it reached  the Mackenzie River Delta, and  then south, following that river  to the lower provinces. The gas  that the line carries would be  frozen, and compressor stations  Books  with  John  Faustmann  would be built every fifty miles to  push the gas through. Large  pipelines such as this have been  built before,, but this one is  unique, even compared to the  recent Alaska pipeline, because  of the country it must pass  through.  The land, the people and the  wildlife of the Western Arctic  are unlike those found anywhere  else in the world. In a section  titled: "Biological sensitivity",  Berger writes: "Although arctic  ecosystems have been described  as sensitive, or even fragile, I  think it is more accurate to say  that they are vulnerable." To  begin with, the actual land itself  is extremely delicate. Most of  it sits atop a layer of permafrost,  or continually frozen earth.

Unlike our coast, which  heals its scars quickly, sprouting,  trees again in the course of a  season, the arctic is very slow to  heal.  Above the fragility of the land  itself, there exist a limited, directly interrelated species of wildlife, all part of one of the simplest  food chains to be found on the  earth. The largest herd of caribou  still left inhabit this district,  migrating thousands of miles in  the course of the seasons. Here  too are found the white whales  of the Beaufort Sea, a herd approximately 5,000 strong who  come to calve just off the Mackenzie Delta. Along with these  are other large northern mammals - three types of bear, moose,  muskox, and the lesser ones,  arctic fox, muskrats, lemmings,  seals. A limited range of wildfowl inhabit the area as well,  including the vanishing peregrine  falcon. Fine pictures of all of  these accompany the text.  Berger's   report   is    in    two  volumes, and this first one is concerned with the impact the pro-.  posed pipeline will have on the  area.      It   soon   becomes   clear  that the impact on the land, the  animals and the people who live  there, would be disastrous. One  of the routes across the northern  Yukon would pass right through  the area where the caribou go to  calve each spring. Drilling in the  Mackenzie Delta is presently  going on where the white whales  calve as well. It has been proven  historically that industrial development of almost any type in the  north is detrimental to the inhabitants. Game immediately becomes scarce around any such  sites, and the Dene and Inuit  peoples, who rely on the game to  feed themselves, are often reduced to poverty, welfare payments and alcoholism as a consequence.

TWILIGHT THEATRE  Gibsons 886-2827  Again and again during the  visits of the commission to  various settlements in the north,  the native people expressed their  great concern about the pipeline. They have inhabited the  country since the beginning of  time (ancient tools date the ar-  ^amaaa^^^  ^____  <-^>H( ^���^-ilan  & Gu-torm  Box 931  Gibsons, B. C.  -J\iu��oa?  SS6 ~ Q262  ^y/////yy///y/y///yy/M^^^^^^  rival of man in the area back at  least 30,000 years) and they are  well aware how little they will  benefit from the pipeline. The  jobs that will be created won't  affect most of them, but the social  problems, the loss of game, and  the continued erosion of their  lifestyle will be felt for years to  come. Some of the strongest  passages in the report are submissions by the native people.  There is a desperation in their  voices that is hard to ignore.  A man from Fort McPherson put  it this way: ' 'To the Indian people  our land is really our life. Without our land we cannot - we could  no longer exist as a people. If  our land is destroyed, we too are  destroyed. If your people take  our land you will be taking our  life."  Another man, from Arctic Red  River, put it this way: "The land,  who made it? I really want to  find out who made it. Me? You?  The government? Who made it?  I know of only one man made  it - God. But on this land who  besides Him made the land?  What is given is not sold to anyone. We're that kind of people.  What is given to us, we are not  going to give away.''  These, then, are the issues that  Berger raises in this report. The  title - "Northern Frontier-Northern Homeland" points to the  conflict that arises from the proposed pipeline. To those of us  down South, the North, is our  last frontier. Are we to exploit  it, as we did the west in the last  century, destroying the whales  and the caribou as we did the  plains buffalo? Or have we���made  some progress in humanity,  coming far enough along to recognize the rights of the people  who have traditionally called the  North their home? Mr. Justice  Berger is adamant that the rights  of the people must be accounted  for. Towards the end of the report he quotes Andre Siegfried:  "Many countries - and they are  to be envied - possess in one  direction or another a window  which opens out on to the infinite-  on to the potential future...The  North is always there like a presence, it is the background of the  picture, without which Canada  would not be Canadian."  The Berger report reveals how  vulnerable our window on infinity  is. Once shattered, it.can never  be replaced. This is a timely  and very important statement to  make. I hope we have the ears  to hear it.  885-3400  FREEZER BEEF  SPECIALISTS  GRADE A-1 STEER  SEAVIEW MARKET  Roberts Creek  Sun -Thur 10 -6:30  Fri & Sat till 8:00 p.m. Coast News, June 14,1977.  5.  Gibsons Harbour has looked like this for several years and may do  so for some time to come. A communication received from the Small  Craft   Harbours Branch refused, the village  permission to go ahead  with the proposed new marina on the grounds that it was on a scale  not economically viable.  Education interview  with Mis. Cloe Day, retired school teacher of 40 years experience.  Coast News: Persuant to questions now being raised over  creative rather than rote learning  in younger grades, any comments?  Mrs. Day: I am sure that for  every child there is a right time  to learn everything, that if the  child learns it then, he will learn  it easily and it will stick. I am  sure that straight rote learning  must be done in early years. I  learned my times tables in grade  five, knew them well, and know  them today without a moments  hesitation. I don't have to think,  it is an automatic reaction which  has been very useful to me all  my life. But a few years ago I  tried to teach times tables to some  grade ten boys who were on a new -  math program and had not rote-  learned them. These were not  "low IQ" boys, but they found  the learning very hard. I saw a  couple of them recently and popped a times-table question at  them; they had to stop and think  to find the answer. You can quote  me as saying "all rote learning  before grade seven", but I would  like to see some genuine research  done on this problem.  Coast News: What about the  changing nature of the teachers'  role?  Mrs. Day: Schools originally  were to give you the tools of  learning, you were supposed to  be able to read and write and  understand something; to do  some kitchen arithmetic and know  the. principles of mathematics.  If a teacher could give you these  tools, you were on your way to  getting an education. More and  more as we quit being a pioneer  society we've left the upbringing  of children to the schools. As  parents become workers they  have increasingly less time to  spend with children so we've  kept passing it on to the teachers;  they're supposed to be all things  to all people; until we have the  teacher now as we have the policeman loaded with so many  things their job is utterly and  totally impossible. Another thing  we did that was very bad for  education was "unemployment"/  we kept making up these stories  about how you can't do this or  that; you can't dig a ditch; unless you've got a grade twelve  education. You can't fool kids!  Any kid in the world knows that's  a crock of bull! That's why kids  say teachers cheat; it isn't the  teachers cheating 1  Coast News: What alternatives  do you propose?  Mrs. Day: I want the compulsory  part of schools to deal with the  skills of learning only - certainly  all students should be able to  read with skill and comprehension, to listen, to observe, to form  ideas and opinions; make judgements; discuss and express themselves; to think. So should they  have arithmetic skills mastered  to the point of automation - for  their own convenience. So should  they be exposed to a broad background of knowledge in the fields  of history, geography, the  sciences, politics, and philosophical thought. But they should not  be expected to memorize a lot  of stupid "facts" and details.  So we keep making  changes, adding courses, bluffing  at how much we are really  teaching.

Ken left Vancouver last Saturday  on United Air Lines en route to  Morristown, New Jersey, where  he will be met by officials of  Seeing Eye, Ind. This organization will be host to Ken for  about four weeks and will provide him with a dog. Both Ken  and his dog will undergo, a period  of getting acquainted and intensive training in order to become  a smooth working unit. He has  already spent some time with the  Canadian National Institute for  the Blind in preparation for the  trip.  The duty of a seeing eye dog  is to assist its master to get  about with ease and safety, and  when it learns the required skills  the owner's handicap of lack of  mobility is greatfully overcome,  and he experiences a new feeling  of independence and self-realization. Many persons are now  guided to work, to school, to shop  by their dog, and some have used  them on overseas vacations. Between the dog and its owner a  strong affiliation develops and  this sensitive animal understands  so completely the needs of its  master. This is a working dog  that gets rewards by fulfilling  its duties successfully. Strangers  may get the urge to give the dog  an encouraging pat or some food  but these tokens are necessarily  the exlusive privilege of the  owner.  The Seeing Eye organization  expects all applicants for a dog  to be in good general health,  and to have the capacity to learn  and apply instruction in care and  use of the dog guide. A blind  person and his dog must be prepared to walk for many practice  hours on the streets of Morris-  town. To get in shape for this  activity Ken has been working  with the Sunshine Coast Community Resource Society's fitness service, and has been participating in the WAMM (Walk  a Measured Mile) program:  During the period of training  in New Jersey the applicant  must get help from a sighted  person in order to get around.  Ideally this should be done by a  family member or friend, but  such an arrangement can rarely  be achieved, therefore, the organization has turned to the Boy  Scouts for help. These young  persons have given outstanding  service in helping the blind persons during their training program. They are passing on to the  trainee their own Scout motto:  "Be Prepared".  The whole Seeing Eye, Inc.  program is of tremendous value,  and appreciation for its effectiveness is enhanced when it is  learned that costs of transportation and accommodation are met  by the organization. Seeing Eye  is a philanthropy and is supported by income from its earnings  on its endowment, trust income,  bequests, and contributions.  However, a recipient must bear  some cost of the dog and training  ($150.00 for first dog and $50.00  for subsequent ones) but payment  may be spread over a period of  years so it is never a hardship.  No other individual or organization may relieve the blind person  of this responsibility. This policy  enables the owner to feel a sense  of accomplishment and ownership.

It  was just like the provincial legislature in session. There were so  many controversial subjects  brought up, my head is still  spinning. But we finally got  things squared away after a  fashion and everything I hope is  running smoothly again at least  it will be for a couple of months  as that was the last general  meeting for this session and then  we start all over again on the  second Monday in September on  account of the first Monday  being Labour Day. In the meantime our Thursday night Bingo  will be starting bang on schedule  on September 1st, so we hope to  see you all good folks who patronized us so well during our last  session. Well to get back to the  business at hand, we held our  Giant Raffle last Monday and the  winners are:  1st prize Box spring and mattress kindly donated by Joe  Benner of Benners Furniture in  Sechelt, won by Louise Green of  Gower Point Road. 2nd prize was  $50.00 food voucher, courtesy of  Ken's Lucky Dollar Store in  Gibsons, which was won by Mr.  Forsman. 3rd prize was a beautiful padded quilt made and do-  Canada Grade A #1  Rib Steaks  Scott Purex 2 Ply 4 Roll Pack  Bathroom Tissue  $1.69 lb.  890  Cook-Out Special  FOIL WRAPPED RUSSETT  BAKING POTATOES  6 for 89^  ALL SPORTS  Marine  Inc.

To all these  donors I would like to convey to  you my heartfelt thanks for  making so many people happy.  Might I say in regard to the  padded quilt won by Eva Oliver  I heard that Eva uses it one  night and Dick the other night so  I don't want them to get their  dates mixed up and take the  wrong turn. I would suggest that  they mark the calendar for whose  turn it is to use it.  Our trip to Squamish was a  great success although Vi Lynds  had quite a time finding accommodation for everyone to be together but was unable to do so on  . account of so many people being  in Squamish at the same time,  however we are gbing to try and  arrange a picnic out at Porpoise  Bay Park so all of you that are  interested in this matter let me  know at either the next carpet  bowling or the last branch bingo  for this term, which will be held  on June 20th at 2:00 p.m. This  being the final branch bingo of  this term, let's make it a good  turnout.  We have also been asked to  take over the Sea Cavalcade  Bingo which will be held on  August 6th. To do this we will  need volunteer workers to help  out. I have accepted the invitation to promote the deal but  I need your help to put it over and  I ask you, please don't let me  down. As you know we have done  it for the past two years and this  being my last year as your President I am asking again for your  co-operation. ,  Today we have the sorrowful  job of attending the funeral  service of one of our members in  the person of Matti Hutala,  Matti died last Saturday at 2:00  a.m. and today we go to pay our  last respects to a conscientious,  quiet and kindly man who was  liked by everyone. Matti did a  lot of volunteer work for us when  we were building the hall as he  was an expert on the use of dynamite and made our work a lot  easier and lighter by his efforts.  He will be greatly missed by all  who knew him, and we send our  sincere sympathy out to Minnie,  his beloved wife and their families in the loss of such a wonderful person as Matti^ "    ���   ���"  I would also; like on behalf of  Kay and myself to thank our  "Sunshine Convenor" Winn  Keene for the beautiful cake and  card she supplied for our 49th  Wedding Anniversary, it was a  wonderful and kind gesture on  your part Winn, and Kay and I  cannot express in words the kindness you have shown. When I  saw the card and cake it just  about floored me. It was just  beautiful, so tastefully decorated  and it was indeed a surprise.  I would also like to thank all the  members who signed the card expressing their good wishes for  us. Also to Mary. Steele for the  two beautiful spoons she donated,  thanks a million Mary with all  you good friends around it makes  us feel very happy to be residents  of the Village of Gibsons where  everyone has been so kind to us  and I hope we will be able to  return the favors you have bestowed on us. Thanks again to  all you wonderful people and as  I stated before in one of my  columns, I am proud and honored  to be your President.

This may be the last  issue for a while as Kay and I  are going to take a little time  off during the Summer. I have  called for an executive meeting  for Thursday, June 9th, rfght  after carpet bowling and unless  something special comes up that  will be the last one for this  session.  i We have got our utility shed  all done now except for the siding  so everything is under cover now.  The siding will be put on at the  first opportunity. Carpet bowling  will be going on until the end of  June but as I said in my former  column, anyone who wishes to  use the hall during the Summer  for recreational purposes may do  so. I am going to take the liberty  of giving Julius Sorenson a key  for. the hall so that he can keep  in practice on the pool table,  so if you desire to use the hall  you can contact Julius at 886-9175  and I am sure he will be glad to  accommodate you.  It is Kay and myselfs sincerest  wish that you all have a wonderful summer and that you will  ���come back in September full of  vim, vigor and vitality, ready for  the fall session. Don't forget  the opening up of the Thursday  night bingo on September 1st,  hope to see you all there. Thursday being the 1st of September  and Labour Day on Monday  September 5th, our next general  meeting will be held on Monday,  September 12th. Until then, have  a good holiday and I hope to see  you all again in the fall.  by Gerry Ward  When I first became involved  with tropical fish, I bought a 15  gallon aquarium, some filters and  pump, heaters and the other  necessary equipment. I knew  nothing of aquariums and less  about fish. I thought now would  be a good time to point out a  few mistakes I have made.  The first mistake was not  buying a book on tropicals. This  I found out after 3 or 4 days when  my fish were seen with closed  fins and gasping type of breathing. Also my aquarium water  was a cloudy, milky white and I  didn't know what was going on.  I went to our local aquarium  dealers and bought a book which  covered a broad area from setting up, to a lot of the common  fish we buy.  I found out that I hadn't  washed the gravel properly, and  that I had 2 types of common  diseases in my aquarium.  The next problem I had was  overstocking the 15 gallon aquarium and then buying a lot of  little aquariums ranging from 3 to  5 gallons. I also had several  diaphragm style pumps. Of  course the little aquariums were  practically.useless to me because  I would overstock them also.  After spending close to $75.00  on pumps I found that the noise  was extremely grating on my  nerves. In the end I traded my  5 gallon aquariums for a 10 gallon  and eventually bought a 30 gallon  aquarium at a loss to myself of  about $30.00. 1 gave away the  diaphragm pumps at a loss of  around $75.00, and bought a  piston pump, for close to $50.00.  With all the other mistakes in  cluded I had lost about $150.00,  all because I was trying to cut  corners and save myself some  money.  After a year I decided I wanted  some bigger fish, and decided on  firemouth cichlids. After finding  some, I picked 4 healthy fish,  took them home and placed them  in my 30 gallon aquarium. The  next morning I noticed all my  neons, my guppies and a few  sword tails had disappeared.  This was my first experience  with fish big enough to enjoy, a  dinner of other fish. This constituted another mistake. As I  raised the firemouths for about  4V- months I could not introduce new fish unless fairly large,  at least so I thought. I noticed  some oscars of about 4 inches in  length in a pet shop, bought  them and took them home and  placed them in the 30 gallon  aquarium. After a few days the  oscars were slashed quite badly,  and also my catfish were looking  rather decrepit. The firemouths  were given away and then the  oscars after two months or so  went the same way.  Eventually7 after many more  mistakes, I bought a 72 gallon  aquarium and put in nothing but  community type fish. I still get  the urge to see big, flashy fish  but unless they get their own  aquarium, I am certain I will not  introduce them into my aquariums. I do not know if this will  help any of you who are just  starting into this hobby, but don't  do as I did and walk into it blindly, it takes a long time to recuperate.

I  Come cry with me  ANN NAPIER  Dear Ann:  What do you think of someone  who discards their man without  a backward glance - after,a month  of cold disregard to her ex-lover's  feelings. Attractive women here  and there start to comfort him and  she comes pouting back to repossess her property. It seems  so insincere.  Concerned Friend  Dear Concerned:  That's the traditional "dog in  the manger - he the dog didn't  want the hay but he lay on it so  the cow couldn't eat it. Well  we have a little friend about 3  years old and when she sees  something she wants, she,grabs  it, clutches it to her bosom and  says firmly 'Mine!'. So posses-  siveness is a human fault. Time  takes care of these reactive  scenes. A child with a discarded  toy is the perfect example, a  playmate comes in to the home  and fancies a toy not touched in  months and the owner then  fancies it. Many a romance has  been renewed with this technique. Wait around and see what  happens.  Dear Ann:  My problem is I don't want to  be left out of parties and gatherings. I am still in school -1 don't  want to smoke pot. I don't get  off anyway. How can I handle  this without insulting those who  do?  Cautious  Dear Cautious:  No thanks 1 That works for all  kinds of things. You can say you  don't want to, I've heard that  people get too relaxed to do the  things they should; like study,  physical work, sports. The term  is laid back. It can mean laid off,  if you have a job. Marijuana  seems to destroy drive - that's  reason enough. Like a person  who can't handle alcohol, have  ginger ale and a good time anyway. Resisting a peer group is  hard, but be your own man, or  girl, as the case may be and don't  do anything against your own  desires just because someone  else wants you to. You could  change groups.  Dear Ann:  What do you think of ladies  who expose three-fourths of their  breasts in low-cut dresses? I  don't have that much so that a  low-cut dress looks like buns  bursting forth - still men never  seem to mind how much, a lot  is what they like apparently.  Discreet  Dear Discreet:  I think how much one reveals  is a matter of taste and who you  want to appeal to. In my opinion  a woman seems desperate if  she has to show all. To interest  someone' in particular, be provocative, too much is vulgar.  Most people deduce one is on the  make with too much showing, or  getting ready to nurse the baby.  Women that are content in their  relationship don't cut the whole  front out of their dresses. So  being pretty, daring to a degree,  but refined will bring more lasting attention, the boob display  brings a lot of one night stands.  I hope I've been helpful.

Called Neighbourhood Watch, this program is  aimed at decreasing crimes  against property. Statistics for  the Sechelt R.C.M.P. alone show  that in 1976 there were 107 reported breaking and enterings  and thefts, while in 1974 there  were only 87. This is an increase  of almost 20 percent in only two  years.  The Neighbourhood Watch  program will be supervised by  local R.C.M.P. detachments.  Supported by a $10,267 federal  Summer Job Corps grant, six  student workers have been hired  for the project. Members of  local Lions Clubs have volunteered their time as a public service to peninsula residents.  These volunteers will be an integral part of the program and  will be working with the R.C.  M.P. in co-ordinating the project  as the entire. Sechelt Peninsula  must be'covered in the eleven  week period from June 20 to  September 2.  There are three aspects to the  Neighbourhood Watch Program:  neighbourhood watch, home  security, and operation identification. Neighbourhood Watch  stresses neighbourhood co-operation and joint security. Tips will  be given to the homeowner on  methods of making the whole  neighbourhood more secure.  However, Operation Identification will be the major focus of  the project. Travelling door-to-  door, project workers will assist  the homeowner in marking his or  her Social Insurance Number in  a permanent way on valuable  home property. This marking will  be done with special engravers  that have been supplied by the  B.C. Police Commission. When  marked, the valuable is then iden  tified with a small sticker. After  a check by the project workers  to ensure that all valuables have  been properly marked, a large  sticker is attached to the home  identifying it as being involved  in the program. When a would-  be burglar sees that property in  the home is readily identifiable,  he usually will not bother to  enter. In areas that have implemented Neighbourhood Watch,  there has been a noticeable drop  in crimes against property.  Those homes that have been  broken into are usually not involved in the program. In the few  cases where engraved property  has been stolen, it was easily  recovered simply by tracing the  engraved Social Insurance Number back to the owner.  As well as checking for correct  engraving, project workers will  also be advising the homeowner  on changes that might be made  to improve home security. Several of these checks can be made  by the homeowner himself. An  unlocked or improperly locked  door is an invitation to unwanted  visitors. Anything less than" a  one-inch deadbolt lock on out-  - side doors can be tampered with  by even the most amateur thief.  Locking devices on windows and  patio doors should be secure and  tamper-proof. Often sliding windows and doors can be lifted right  out of their tracks: A shim in  the upper sliding track can prevent this. Locks on garage doors  should be employed, especially,  if expensive workshop equipment is ihside. A lock display incorporating these ideas will be  shown at public meetings. The  first of these public meetings  to acquaint local residents with  the program will be held on June  20 at Madeira Park Legion. The  meeting will begin at 8:15 and  there will be an opportunity to  ask questions afterward.  The Neighbourhood Watch  program will begin the week of  June 20 in the Pender Harbour  area. Sechelt will be covered in  the latter half of July, and Gibsons will receive the program in  the month of August. Residents  can expect to be called on by a  project worker, who will instruct  them in the method of marking  valuables. It should be stressed  that all Neighbourhood Watch  workers will carry official I.D.,'  and that no person shduld be admitted into a home without first  displaying this identification.  In most cases, the engravers will  be left overnight, so that residents can mark the bulk of their  belongings themselves. The following day, workers will return to  pick up engravers and to check  on the marking. This whole  process will take about one-half  hour of the homeowner's time,  yet it will provide a lasting form  of property identification at no  cost. With the full support of  area residents, this program will  be successful in considerably reducing crimes against property  on the Sechelt Peninsula.

It could be also  one with mixed blessings for the  allegedly lucky ones. Being one  of the elect opened the door to  rare opportunities to live it up,  or hold exalted positions in business or society, or both. It may  be that our human society has  become more mature in its corporate thinking, for we ��� give a  higher rating now to the riches of  health, natural gifts, and talents.  So, in a sense, the great gap  between the haves and the have  nots is seen to diminish. And  that is well for us all.  There is another gap we would  like to close. That is the gap  between normal healthy children  and adults, and those who have  come into our over-populated  world with certain handicaps. I  mean the blind, those who have  no power of speech, the physically handicapped, and others who  come under the definition of.  being retarded. It is a social gap  that should not exist. It creates  cruelty and hurtful embarrassment during the retarded one's  school life, for no one is more  cruel than an unthinking child  to another over whom it,senses  some physical or mental advantage. This carries over in a more  subtle manner in our adult acceptance, or should I say non-acceptance of those not quite as fortunate as we are in the possession  of God-given faculties.  Right across Canada now are  people, in organizations who are  giving all their talents, their  spare time, and their few dollars,  to help close this,merciless gap.  Michael Campbell, executive  director of the Canadian Special  Olympics spoke to delegates of  the 24th annual conference of  the Ontario Association of the  Mentally Retarded on this question. "We have to work on improving the skills and capabilities of these people and help the  public look in and see the potential these people do have.-,. We  need to reach out into the community."  Locally, in what we call the  Sunshine Coast, a start has been  'made to correct this situation; ;  or the condition that has created  this gap. The Sechelt and District Association 'for '���' Retarded  Children has a newly organized  work program under the name of  "The Sunshine Achievement  Centre'', that operates temporarily in classrooms of Elphinstone  High School, Gibsons. Ted  Dinsley, a retired minister, is  the centre's supervisor and he  told me, "The objectives of the  new achievement centre projgram  are to enable handicapped people  to acquire, as much as possible,  a feeling of self-worth, emotional  stability, social equality and  economic independence." This  is in accord with the national  program that emphasizes the  closing of the gap between handicapped and normal people.  These are not pipe dreams,  these ideas of bridging the gap. I  have witnessed patients at two  Vancouver hospitals being rehabilitated by the process of  arts and crafts therapy. Some of  their work has been displayed at  possibly every Pacific National  Exhibition. Many exhibits have  won firsts in prizes. Eventually,  though,  as a nursing-orderly I  watched their early clumbsy  attempts to manipulate their  fingers and minds in co-ordination.  Ed Hauka, ex-R.C.A.F. mechanic, teaches motor mechanics.  Ken Ostrom, is chief volunteer  wood-working instructor. They  have a blind boy and a deaf lad  as trainees there. Mrs. Lily  Skidmore; Mrs. Edith Simmons;  and Mrs. Ostrom help girls learn  heedlecrafts. Jack MacLeod and  Art McPhee, two of the volunteer drivers who bring trainees to  Elphinstone School, put their two  hour waiting time, (that's the  time period for instruction every  Saturday morning), in teaching  woodwork also. Two high school  girls have volunteered too. They  aspire to become teachers in this  work.  Two executives of the Gibsons  Lions Club are helping the Achievement Centre to grow in several  ways. There are also 30 gifted  people who have offered their  services when they are needed.  And that should not be too long  for the venture is a growing thing  as I saw last Saturday when i  looked in on the classes in action.  Sechelt Shell Service Station  donates 5 gallons of gas each  week to one trainee driver-helper.  All in their own particular way  are helping to close the gap.  Can you?

Lockstead in Pender meeting (cont'd)  Community plan for Pender discussed in depth  Chemical  spraying  Lockstead also told the meeting  that in spite of all public protest,  spraying of powerline right-of-  ways with the defoliant 2,4-D  would be resumed this year by  B.C. Hydro. He noted that .the  chemical had been proven to be  harmful to many animals including humans, and especially  pregnant women and small children. The spraying decision was  only one more example of the way  the public corporation has passed  out of public control and become  a law unto itself, Lockstead said.  He told the meeting that 41 cents  of every dollar paid to Hydro by  consumers goes to cover interest  on loans, many of which are  made necessary only by an unnecessarily high projected growth  rate. The corporation has made  no effort to conserve energy, he  added; 41% of the electrical  energy used in B.C. is consumed  by 26 major consumers who pay  only 21 % of the cost. "They have  it set up so the more you use the  cheaper it gets, when it should  be the other way around."  Coastal  oil spills  Lockstead also dealt at some  length with the threat of oil-  spills on the coast, noting that  the threat of damage to local  beaches has been greatly increased by the oil companies'  decision to favour a Cherry Point  port over one in Kitimat.  When a man in the crowd  suggested B.C. should allow  American oil to pass through its  ports because the U. S. allows  Canadian oil to pass through  American ports on the east coast,  Lockstead exclaimed, "A bad  situation over there doesn't  justify one here. The B. C. coast  is just too precious to expose it  to this kind of abuse and I for one  will fight to my last breath any  attempt to let tankers come down  this coast." The meeting applauded loudly.

The  Ratepayers have been successful  in preventing any more sewage  outfalls being established in the  harbour, he said, and a letter was  read from the Department of the  Environment assuring the group  that the sewage plant at Vista  Villa in Bargain Harbour, although operating at slightly  above permitted levels, was not  creating serious pollution.  During the discussion of the  Pender Harbour Community  Plan, Howard White posed the  question of how the area had  become committed to-drawing up  a plan when there was no law  requiring it and there had never  been a public vote on the question. Regional Director Jack  Paterson said he thought there  was some law in the municipal  act requiring community plans,  but couldn't be sure and would  check on it. Shirley Vader said  it was just Pender Harbour's  "turn" to draw up a plan and  Billy Griffith said he thought the  job had been given local people  because they had objected to  planning bylaws 96 and 103 devised by the regional district.  Joe Harrison pointed out that  none of these remarks answered  the original question and suggested the plan had been initiated  by the regional district planner.  -In response to a further question by White, Paterson said that  he favoured giving the public  a final say on the plan by putting  it to referendum, and wquld make  every effort to have a referendum  held if it were possible.  Shirley  Vader  presented   the  meeting with an up-to-date re  port on the plans to build a swimming pool in the new high school  at Kleindale, saying that the  $280,000 cost would be part of a  $980,000 recreation program for  the whole district (exclusive of  Gibsons Village). The program  would eventually be put to referendum, but even if Pender  Harbour voted against it, it could  still go through - if the other  areas down the road voted for it.  One woman wanted to know if  the decision to incorporate the  pool in the new school and use  it for fire protection meant the  school was "being constructed  without an adequate water supply  and sprinkler system. Paterson  confirmed this, adding that it  would take 2 or 3 years to build  a water supply system. Bill  Schoular told the meeting, "It  is just crazy to rebuild that school  without a water system going in  first."  The people of Pender Harbour  have a history of reacting violently to any and all forms of regulation or restriction, but that may  soon come to an end if the marathon four-hour meeting held  Sunday, May 29, to discuss the  newly-drafted Pender Harbour  Offical Community Plan is any  indication.  The plan, worked out under  the direction of the Regional  District by a committee appointed by regional director Jack  Paterson, is similar to one introduced by the Pender Harbour  Ratepayers Association in 1972,  in that it proposes to divide the  area up into zones of restricted  land use. Unlike the public  meeting which noisily rejected  that earlier plan however, the  meeting on Sunday reacted  calmly, if a bit suspiciously, to  the new proposals, asking questions here, making suggestions  there, seldom raising a voice.  The peaceful reception was a  Graduation  J'S UNISEX  HAIR  MEN'S  HAIRSTYLING  EXPERTLY  DONEBY  EVE SCHILLING  SUNNYCREST MALL  tribute to regional director Jack  Paterson's judgement in appointing the 8-member committee,  which seems to have included a  little bit of something for everyone.  The plan itself covers only  the immediate Pender Harbour  area, from the lower end of  Sakinaw Lake across to the  powerline above Kleindale and  down to Silver Sands, excluding  the Egmont and Middlepoint  areas. Two commercial cores  would be centred around Madeira  Park and Garden Bay and a 200-  acre industrial zone would run  inland from the area of the Webb  machinery yard in Kleindale.  The Kleindale area would also  be the site of several agricultural  reserves and the area surrounding Garden Bay Lake would be  reserved for light-density residential development. The remaining areas would be.straight  residential, exclusive of other  uses excepting commercial services "to supply local needs  only."  The plan's basic goals are all  on the side of the angels and  elicited no objections from anyone: to preserve a sense of rural  community, maintain a mixed  population, encourage employment and community service,  protect the natural character of  the area, encourage conservation,  and to "provide for the recreational needs of residents and  visitors while keeping rural  tranquility and ecological balan-  ce.  When it came to the fine points  of how these worthy aims were to  be achieved however, there was  prolonged confusion and polite  disagreement. For instance, the  first objective in the plan is "to  encourage the .development of  residential subdivisions" and the  first policy proposal under this  objective calls for a tenfold reduction in the minimum lot size  now applying to rural areas,  from 4.9 acres to .49 acres. This  .49 acres would, furthermore,  not be a hard and fast minimum  but only an "average minimum",  so that on choice land lots might  be diced up to a much smaller  size.  Another policy provides for  condominiums and cluster developments on lots less than .49  - acres, requiring only that they  have common sewers.  Many people evidently found  these measures a curious way to  seek "preservation of the natural  atmosphere and sense of rural  community", and wondered if  the committee wasn't saying one  thing and doing another. At one  point in the meeting committee  member John MacFarlane was  even heard to say something  about "building a city here",  which some people objected to  but others did not. Sue Tarnoff  said half-acre lots were too small,  and would soon result in a community of "all houses and no  trees". Planner Robyn Addison  herself remarked that if the entire 19,000 acres under study  were developed into .49-acre  lots, accommodation would be  made for 77,000 people, which  she added dubiously, "is a lot of  people".  Peter Benjafield stood up to  deliver an impassioned and eloquent warning against turning  the area into "another Kerris-  dale or Richmond", and drew  the only applause of the afternoon. Even it was spotty however, because whereas the meeting drew only about 65 people,  most of the area's developers  and important land holders were  there.  Bill Malcolm said half-acre  lots were too big and would only  cause a lot of land to be wasted,  and committee member Lloyd  Davis,,who is a director of the  Pender Harbour Property Owners  Association, let it be known that'  the half-acre average was the  work of "other people on the  panel". .  "I feel .4950 acres should be  the maximum lot size," he said.  The meeting split along similar  lines discussing a proposed  greenbelt policy which would require developers to deed over a  49.2-foot border fronting all  lakes and streams. Property  owners with streams saw this as  asking for an invasion by hordes  of rowdy, bottle-flinging punks;  others applauded it as a civilized  measure to prevent lakefronts  from being fenced off from public  enjoyment like so much of the  seafront.  Policy proposal, prohibiting    storage    of    "derelict  machines or any junk", drew  predominantly hostile comment.  "Who's going to decide what's  junk?" asked Sammy Lamont.  "I've got a rusty old boomstick  auger in my yard and there's  probably a lot of people go by  and say 'look at that awful piece  of junk', but to me it's a very  useful device."  Robbi Peters said she .would  regret having to take the old cars  off her place because, "I have a  gang of teenage hoys and anyone with teenage boys will know  how important old cars are. They  learn a lot working on them and  it keeps them home out of trouble. I don't see anything wrong  with that."  There was no criticism of the  choice of location for the industrial zone but some speakers  thought it would not encourage  prospective industries to be forced to locate in an area not of  their choosing and which would  probably become very expensive.  Bob Lamont pointed out some  light industries would require  waterfront and barge-loading  facilities and should not be confined inland.  A Mr. Sim questioned the wisdom of an absolute ban on marine  sewage outfalls, saying they  would be all right if disinfected  with chlorine. Committee member Joe Harrison pointed out  chlorine itself was harmful to  marine life and claimed no known  treatment methods could be considered foolproof. Critics persisted in opposing the.bah, saying, "maybe some 7 new safe  method will be invented."  Even with Addison told the  crowd it would have no final  say in accepting the plan there  was little more than vague stirrings and raised eyebrows. Ideas  put forth at the meeting will be  considered during reworking of  the proposals but won't be taken  as binding. Nevertheless, the  finished plan will be regarded  as "the considered wishes of the  community" to be used "wherever possible for making deci-.  sions concerning Pender Harbour". Changes will be made  only if it is "clear the change enjoys widespread community support".

The members of the Gibsons  Elementary Track and Field team  have recently participated in  many exciting and important  events. The enthusiasm and  excellent coaching of Roger  Douglas, Bob Cotter and Harry  Howard, combined with many  hours of practice and hard work  by the students, has enabled the  track team to bring several  awards and medals home to Gibsons Elementary School.  The first major event took place  on May 15th at Gordon Park  School in Powell River. This was  a qualifying event which saw 21'  students meet qualifying times  that enabled them to participate  in the B.C. Elementary Track  and Field Championships.

On May 25th, 28 members of  the Gibsons team travelled to  Abbotsford, where they competed  in track and field events against  school teams from Sechelt, Abbotsford and North Poplar. Although Gibsons was the smallest  school competing at this event,  they did exceptionally well by  capturing 40 ribbons, approximately V_ of the awards given,  and finishing 3rd place in overall  points. Well done!  Richmond - B.C. Elementary  Track & Field Championships  The B.C. Elementary Track  and Field Championships were  held at Minoru Park, Richmond  on May 27th, 28th and 29th.  Many local supporters were on  hand to cheer and encourage  the Gibsons team. The untold  hours of practise and effort by  both coaches and students certainly paid off for the Gibsons  team as they received Gold,  Silver and Bronze medals, and  placed an outstanding 2nd place  in overall points for schools entered with less than 300 students.  Children competed in three categories: Tykes, Pee Wees and  Bantams. Approximately 1600  children from 140 schools were  entered in the events. 7  Gold Medal winner Sasha  Stout, 9 year old tyke girl, became  the 1977 B.C. Champion in the  1500 meter event. Brad Krintila, tyke boy, received a Silver  Medal for his exciting 2nd place  finish in the 400 meter race, and  was also awarded a Bronze medal  for 3rd place finishe in the 1500  meter event. Other Silver Medal  winners were tyke girls Celina  Owens, Julie Macedo, Sasha  Stout and Sonya Valancius for  an exciting 2nd place finish in  the 800/200/400/600 Medley  Relay.

The Wanderers Soccer Club  held a steak and baked potatoes  barbeque this Sunday, June 12th.  Besides the soccer players, a  ' number of friends and helpers of  the club were in attendance:  Mr. and Mrs. Kevin Murphy,  Mr. and Mrs. Mike Fromager,  Mr. and Mrs. Glyn Davies and  Ernie Fossett.  After John Crosby chopped  down some posts the soccer players put up a net and had a number  of wild volleyball games. Once,  the ball went into the bushes and  was retrieved by Robbie Williams  in his V.W. dune buggy.  Some of the wives, including  Charlene de Reus, Vi Campbell,  Ann Duffy and Gisela Bjornson  enjoyed a game of croquet.  The party was a great end to  the Wanderer's season.  Penalty Shots: Response for  the new juvenile soccer club has  fifteen players recuited but there  is still a need for a coach. Anyone interested in coaching the  under 16 club ' should contact  Jan de Reus at 886-2046. The  Wanderers are presently organizing an outdoor 5 aside soccer  tournament for the end of August. Rumored new tryouts for  the 1977-78 season for the Wanderers are Graham Chapman,  Robbie Williams and Ric Underwood;  wwwwwwwwww/w  CLASSIFIED NOTE  Dn��   off  yoor   Coast   News  Classifieds at Campbell'* Family  Shoes tc Leather Goods in downtown Sechelt.

In the 14th game of  the tournament, Legion downed  Nanaimo 9-1 to forge the final.  The final was Legion's 4th game  of the day and 3rd in a row and  they never did get started in it.  Along with 1st place Nanaimo  had the top pitcher in G. Hambley  and the top batter in M. Woods.  Woods just edged out Legion's  Peter Rigby for the title hitting  a fantastic .600. Don Elson and  Freeman Reynolds of Legion  shared the top honor of most  valuable player.  Roberts Creek finished the  tournament in 3rd spot, the other  2 local teams Windsor and Sechelt finished 6th and 7th 'respectively.  The Legion Fastball Club would  like to thank all the fans and  teams for making this, their  9th Annual Tournament such a  success. A special thank you' to  Gerry Dixon, Ed MacDonald and  the many ball.players who umpired when they weren't playing;  to Virginia Reynolds who was  official scorekeeper and finally to  the people who donated their  time at the refreshment stand.  Next tournament will be July  1st and 2nd.  Fast action is featured in a recent girls' volleyball tournament in Kamloops in which the  Gibsons Omega Volleyball Team participated.  Badminton birds fly high  By Barnibos & Co.  The Sunshine Coast had a good  year badminton wise. Every  Wednesday evening at Elphinstone High and every Tuesday  and Wednesday at the Sechelt  High badminton birds were  flying.  The Wednesday night group  had some good socials. Early in  the year there was a handicap  tournament that saw players progressively handicapped with such  things as balloons on their racquets, . masks* on ,i their faces; ^'ncial ^Singles  flippers on their feet and' even next year;    ..-^  tennis racquets instead of badminton racquets.  More recently, Cliff and Cathy  Acton organized a family hamburger barbecue at Porpoise  Bay. Everyone had a good time  and extend their thanks to the  Actons for all their efforts.  Juniors, Rod Compasano, Ric  Underwood, Ryan Mathews, and  Eric Hopkins entered the Pepsi  Cola and B.C. Tournaments  during the year.

C.  Hydro strives to meet a growing  demand for electric power. Addressing a growth-limits seminar  in Victoria, James W. Wilson, a  B. C. Hydro Director, said,  ' 'As we turn to sources or energy  that are farther and farther  away, the transmission lines become longer and longer, and we  get into the development of nuclear power, the cost is going to  go up and up."  The demand for power in B.C.  is doubling every ten years, and  this rate of exponential growth  could accelerate even faster.  This is forcing B. C. Hydro to  look to the Liard and Stikine  River systems in Northern B. C.  for future power generation.  Just to keep pace with the  growing demand for power, B.C.  Hydro will have to add the equivalent of one-quarter of the capacity of the  Peace River Hydro  Richard von Fuchs  (One of the candidates for the  Federal N.D.P. nomination)  Will be in Gibsons  June 16,17, & 18  If you'd like to meet Richard,  leave message at N.D.P. office.

By 1990,  Wilson said, one-half that capacity will have to be added annually. B. C. Hydro will continue  to develop hydro-electric power  until about 1986. Then it will  begin looking at the Hat Creek  coal deposits as a source of fuel  for power generation.  Contrary to the forecast by  former hydro Co-chairman, Dr.  Hugh Keenleyside, Mr. Wilson  said nuclear power won't be available in B. C. by 1981 because it  takes eight-years to build a nuclear plant and none have been  started.  The use of electricity in B. C.  must be curtailed and B. C. Hydro will take steps to see that this  occurs. Wilson said B. C. Hydro  rate structures could change  shortly, because consumers won't  curtail their use of electric power  until it hurts. It would appear  that B. C. Hydro is considering  either charging more for power  beyond a certain usage - or at  peak power periods.  I was talking recently with  Vancouver inventor Ward D. C.  Carson about the problem of  leveling out consumption of electricity. As it stands now we are  primarily building power generating facilites to cope with peak  demand loads. Mr. Carson informs us, one way of leveling out  the weighty energy demand of  peak periods would be to develop  some means of storing power  generated during off peak periods  for use during peak periods of  demand. He proposes the use of  gyro-scopes to store energy for  later use. The idea isn't new -  gyro-scopes have been used for  years to store energy. The Swiss  had buses powered by energy  stored in this manner forty years  ago. Every three miles or so they  would pull to the curb, plug into  an electrical outlet and charge  up their gyro-scope. The stored  energy powered the vehicle to  the next station. More recently,  small sophisticated gyro-scopes  have been used to provide power  in satelites and space vehicles.  Ward Carson says why not  develop this principle to the point  where major users of electricity -  factories, shopping centres, high-  rise apartments and the like  might install a series of large  gyro-scopes operating in a  vacuum right on the premises.  Once charged, such a gyro-scope  would run for weeks withough  being recharged unless the power  generated is used.  After midnight for instance,  power generating facilites that  aren't being used to anywhere  near capacity could be used to  Going through the Change of Light?

With refinements,-  the gyro-scope could be installed  in private homes.     An  electric-!  motor on the gyro-scope would  spin the gyro-scope to the requi- ;  red speed and then be turned off.  automatically.   Later in the day,. '  the  power  stored  in the  gyro-. -  scope could be drawn from to.-  provide all, or a portion of the. -  electic demand load required on  the premises. It could be used in. ���  the   starting   of   heavy   electric -  motors or for general lighting.  It could even be used to replace  .< the expensive banks-of stand-by  battery power required by public,���  buildings such as large shopping ���-  centres and hospitals. If the elec- -  trie motor used to spin the gyro- ������..  scope were reversed it would be--  come a generator and could be ���.  used  to  supply  electric  energy  from the energy  stored  in the-'  gyro-scope.      Carson' says   the-'  principle involved is ridiculously ."  simple and many of the compo-1 "  nent parts required for such a-  system are already on the market.'- ���  It's just a matter, he says, of  developing the  idea into something  which would take  power ' ���  generated in off-peak periods and" ���  make  it  available   during peak  ���  periods.   Carson suggests B. C."-  Hydro might utilize. large high-'  speed gyro-scopes in connection ���������  with   their  generating  facilities  so that they could store energy  in the off periods of demand for ���  use later in the day.    It would-'  even replace the need for the ex- -  pensive pumped water storage. ���  systems currently used at hydro" -  facilities. A rough estimate from" ���  an electrical engineer I consulted' -  ��� about this system,  showed  we  could nearly double the energy'  of hydro dams with gyro-scopic -  energy storing systems, obviating ������'  the need for the environmentally  hazardous   construction   of   still  '  more hydro-dams.  After questioning Carson regarding the development of this  and  other  energy   conservation   '  systems,  I learned  that  B.   C."  Hydro contacted him in August  1973 after hearing him describe'  the   gyro-storage   system   while   '  being   interviewed   on    C.B.C.  T.V:.     They  approved   3  other-  energy     conservation     systems  ���  besides and wrote up a contract ��� *  to develop them for Canadians' ���  and to make them available to"  other countries as well.   Carson'  received encouraging reports of ��� -  progress for months on end but;-,  was finally called by hydro engineer Cy White who told him that  the higher ups don't want them  and that the development was off.  To this day that contract sits  unsigned in hydro's files along  with who knows how many  others, where no one, especially  British Columbians will benefit.  Ward Carson is a former member of the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers, is  currently president of the Deep  Cove Research and Development  Co. Ltd., now making gyro-energy storage known to Ralph Nader's Energy and Environment  Corp., and is discoverer of the  basic coordinate system of our  universe. ��� . *' A novel view of the Adventure Playground just completed behind the Roberts Creek Elementary School catches an obviously appreciative young lady delighted with the new  facility.

Profiles of this place  CHARLIE JONES  By John Faustmann  The house on the bluff in  Grantham's Landing is neat and  warm. The view from the windows is exceptional - the bay  stretches out through the gap to  the Gulf, and beyond that, Vancouver Island sits lumped and  purplish in the distance. This is  the home of Charlie Jones, and  his wife Karen.  Charlie stands at the window,  looking out. Dressed in a soft  flannel shirt, with braced to hold  up his jeans and a pair of slippers  that look like old friends, Charlie  is sizing up the weather. He's  trying to read the signs - the way  the clouds are moving, what the  gulls are doing, which way the  trees are bending in the wind.  For years he was a commercial  artist, painting outdoor advertising. When the weather turned  bad, he was out of work, so he's  made it his business to read the  sky. "I became, not a bird watcher, but a cloud watcher," he  likes to say. He doesn't bother  listening to the weatherman any  more.  As he talks, standing there in  the living room, Charlie Jones  moves with a lightfooted grace.  He spent nine years on the stage,  touring the Canadian vaudeville  circuit, and watching him, you  can still see, the carefully tapped  step of an old song-and-dance  man.- His hands, palms outstretched, seem to balance him as  he sways, and his voice, which is  as soft as the blue of his eyes,  is even, and quite compelling.  It is a voice that is essentially  quiet, but with that full note  somewhere behind it, a note that  hints that it could be much more  powerful if it wanted. During his  days in vaudeville, in between  shows, Charlie would always go  out to the zoo and look at the  lions. You feel, somehow, when  you see him, that some of their  leonine ease must have rubbed  off, and you know, that were  Charlie to fall, either from the  stage, or from the high scoffol-  dings that dangled; above the  street, he'd surely land, catlike,  on his feet.  But his is a life that has learned  to balance. : He's ^originally an  English boy, born outside Liver  pool, and he arrived in Vancouver  in 1909. A smile etches its way  across his smooth-shaven face  as he recalls his city boyhood.  Those were the days, spent mostly with his friends on the Kitsi-  lano Indian Reserve, but also  spent working, helping to earn  money for his family. He drove a  horse and wagon over the wooden  Granville Street bridge, delivering the English crumpets his  mother made, and taking ice  cream, peanuts and - popcorn,  selling them to the^first concession stand in Stanley Park. Aside  from his memories of a city now  entirely changed, Charlie's boyhood must have been exceptional.  His mother, he recalls, "worshipped sunsets", and his father kept  tame birds, as many as 140 of  them at one time.  Then, on his way to school one  day, he stopped at the corner of  Fourth and Granville to watch  a man painting letters oh a window. The man's work fascinated  him, and he never did make it  to school that day, but this was  the beginning of his career as  a commercial artist. He started  out as an apprentice, cleaning  the brushes and sweeping up,  but you could say he worked his  way to the top. Before he'd  finished as a signpainter, he  would have done many large  billboards, painting eight-foot  high blondes in bikinis, and  three-foot wide flowers, and once,  he was responsible for painting  the revolving "W" high over  Woodward's Department store.  This all seemed quite ordinary to  Charlie Jones. "They never  made buildings high enough," he  says. "I was never scared of  heights."  As much as he loved being a  commercial artist, it wasn't an  easy trade. He started off doing  various pictures, learning the art  by painting the Canadian Pacific  trademark, and then doing huge  packages of cigarettes for the  Imperial Tobacco Company. Bad  weather meant no money,  though, and by now Charlie had  found another love. He knew he  wanted to be an opera singer.  And so he began, paying but most  of his salary for singing lessons.,  His first teacher, Olga McAlpine,  was impressed with his patience  and   his   fine   baritone   voice.  His second teacher, a Mr. Orsatti,  gave him free lessons in exchange  for signpainting work. "I struggled all the time through life,"  says Charlie, recalling this  period. "I struggled with both  trying to get pay for my singing  lessons, and losing time for bad  weather on the job."  Soon his voice was strong and  deep and balanced within him.  He began to get jobs singing in  Vancouver. "People ask me how  I got into singing," lie says.  --"I tell them^was; starved- into-  it, in the depression days. -That's  how I got started." He played  dates at the old Vancouver Hotel,  the Quilchena Golf Club, the  Georgia Hotel and the Terminal  City Club. He billed himself as:  "Charlie Jones, the Character  Baritone," and he dressed in  blackface. Songs like: "Old  Man River", "Without a Song",  "Wagon Wheels", "Deep  River", "Swing Low Sweet  Chariot" and another, called  "That's why Darkies were Born"i  formed his repetoire.  Charlie still has' the old suitcase with his costumes and makeup in it. He appeared on stage  as an elderly black man, first as  a preacher, then as an old negro  slave. He. pulls the costumes  from the case, showing how they  were designed for a quick backstage change, and he fingers  once more the tubes of greasepaint, the battered wigs and  whiskers, and the other props  from his life on the stage. From  1936 to 1945 he took his act across  Canada. He played places like  the Tick-Tock Club, the Chez  Maurice, and the Samovar.  There were usually five acts to  a show, and Charlie appeared  with magicians, ventriloquists,  lady singers, and one woman who  had a roller-skating act.

"I got tired of the restaurants  and I missed the mountains,"  he says, and returned to the coast ,  to stay.  That   was   some   time   ago,   '  and Charlie has pretty well retired these days, if you can call  the incredibly full life he leads  being  "retired".    He's on the  ;  ferries  into Vancouver at least  three times a week, going into  town to give  painting  lessons,  -  and to sing to different groups  there.   With the aid of one note  from the piano, he still practices  his songs, standing in the kitchen  : where, the acoustics are a little  .better.

Charlie finishes the repacking of  his old battered suitcase, carefully tucking away the faded black  frock coat, and the spirit gum that  held on his costume whiskers.  He straightens up easily, and  looks again out the window.  From the way his face softens to  the view, you can tell that here,  at last, there are mountains and  Sea water enough, even for  Charlie Jones.

Fitness  swimming  By Lynne Wheeler  The swimming season is upon  us, and that means that swimming lessons are here too. The  lessons in the Gibsons area will  be held at Armour's Beach and  Hopkins Landing beach, with  Joanne Green and Lynne Wheeler  instructing.  Courses offered to learn about  self survival include Floaters  (four years and older for non-  swimmers), Pre-Beginners, Beginners, Survival, and Juniors.  Intermediate and Senior courses  are also offered to learn the basics  for future Life Saving.  All courses are taught about  Water Safety," which is the most  important part of swimming.  Everyone, young and old, should  know and use water safety rules,  such as swimming with a buddy,  judging the distance you are  -capable of swimming and wearing  a life jacket in a boat. These  rules are provided so that you  can have fun and enjoy yourselves in and around the water.  Swimming is also a good form  of excercise because it uses all  the muscles in the body. In the  water, muscles are more pliable  and maneuverability is very easy.  For example, running through the  water is good for toning the legs.  In waist deep water, moving the  legs from side to side is a good  massage, and tones the hips and  legs.  Coast News, June 14,1977.  mwmammamBmamaKaammmammaa^mmma  13.

HAPPY FATHER'S DAY  6  Oil spills threaten coastal economy  Bulk Imported Cheeses  Fresh European  Meats & Sausage  and a full line of  ; Table Ready Foods  * DELICATESSEN  ��� CAFETERIA  ^ Sunnycrest Centre  This is the first part of a three-  part series on the projected  movement of oil tankers along our  coast. By Howard White  It is said army psychologists  studying troops under fire during  the Second World War quickly  learned to ignore such symptoms  as weeping, trembling and incoherent speech. The dangerous  cases they found, the ones who  would invariably prove incapable  of saving themselves, were the  men who were just acting normal.  The principle involved was that  under abnormally threatening  conditions abnormal behaviour  was the sane response and normal behaviour the insane response.  With that example in mind one  can't help wondering a little  about the collective sanity of the  B.C. public in face of its rather  ho-hum response to the increasingly imminent threat of environmental destruction from  marine oilspills.  Perhaps the oilsoill threat has  'f*  SUNSHINE  AUTO & INDUSTRIAL PARTS LTD.  885-2296  -2297  Front End  Clutches -  Proto   &  Serving your needs with:  Brake Shoes - Brake Line -  Parts - Exhaust Systems -  Starters - Water Pumps  Westward Tools - Fan Belts - Rad  Hoses - Turtle Wax - Seat Covers -  Floor Mats - Spark Plugs - Oil Filters -  Air Filters   COME IN AND BROWSE  Oil  Spouts  Filter  Wrenches  30 W  Vavoline oil  2.95  *2.19  99c  qt.

This treatment  has certainly tended to enlist  the sympathy of sweet little old  ladies while alienating the average hockey fan and with him the  poll-fearing politician.  In fact a single major oilspill  in B.C.'s inside waters - along  either of the two tanker routes  now proposed - would be an economic catastrophe affecting the  daily lives of thousands of workmen, businessmen and politicians, in addition to those whose  involvement in the issue is mainly  sentimental.  A continuing series of such  spills, which appears inevitable  from any realistic study of the  routes proposed and past oil-  tanker performance, represents  a threat to existing lifestyles and  livelihoods in the coast region  probably unparalleled by anything that has happened since  the European arrival. In our  rather pristine history it is difficult to find a threat of comparable magnitude. It is certainly  a more real and terrible threat  than the apprehended Japanese  invasion which caused such commotion and frantic preparation  during the middle years of World  Warll.  But where is the commotion  and preparation now?  What is proposed of course is  a deepsea port where tankers  transporting North Slope oil from  the newly-completed Trans-  Alaska Pipeline terminus in  Valdez can feed their cargoes  into a pipeline system connecting;  into a pipeline system connecting  with the fuel-starved states of  the American midwest.  The oil cartel's first preference  would be to deliver to one of the  two areas where refining and  linkup facilities already exist:  Southern California and Puget  Sound. Unfortunately for us,  popular awareness of the undesirable effects of the oil traffic  in both those localities is such  that approval to base tanker  routes there would be almost  impossible to attain.  In Puget Sound for instance,  leglislation presently on the books  regulating the shipping of oil  is so severe that Atlantic-Ritch-  field has challenged it in court  as an unwarranted restriction on  trade.  The multinational oil companies, far from being impervious  to public feeling as many people  assume, find themselves fleeing  from it, and it is this flight  which leads them toward the B.C.  border.  There are two quite feasible  Washington   sites   outside   the  Puget   Sound   limits,    at    Port  Angeles on Juan de Fuca Strait  and Cherry Point on the south  end   of  Georgia   Strait.       Port  Angeles is much preferable from  a Canadian standpoint since its  direct accessibility to the open  ocean lessens the likelihood of  accidents,  and currents on the  south   side   of   Juan   de   Fuca  Strait would keep spilled oil on  the American side of the border,  where spilled American oil belongs. Cherry Point, on the other  hand, lies at the end of a difficult  passage  through   the   San  Juan Islands where the odds in  favour of accidents are greatly  heightened  and  any spilled  oil  would sweep up Georgia Strait  onto B.C. shores.    Nevertheless  the Cherry Point site is preferred  by  oil  interests  because   some  facilities already exist there - and  because   the  residents   of  Port  Angeles  have  opposed   the   oil  port   plan    in    a    referendum.  iWouldn't it be nice if someone  asked us?)  During the reign of the N.D.P.  government, which was hostile  to any plans for increased tanker  traffic in B.C. waters, the northward flight of the oil companies  stopped at Cherry Point but with  the advent of Social Credit in  December 1975 and Premier  Bill Bennett's surprise advocacy  of a tanker terminal at Kitimat,  the battle moved into the heart of  B.C. territory.  Superficially, the Kitimat  option would appear much- less  attractive to the Americans than  either of those in their own territory. It is further from the midwest and would involve the construction and renting of Canadian  facilities. The approach is even  more difficult than that to Cherry  Point. But in a joint meeting  with Canadian energy minister  Alastair Gillespie, the U. S. energy minister James Schlesinger  came out in favour of the Kitimat  route and at this writing it seems  to be leading the see-saw battle  by a clear length.  There are two reasons for this  seeminly contradictory preferen  ce. One is obvious: - just by  advocating the Kitimat route the  oil companies don't rule out use  ofthe southern ports, and as far  as they are concerned, the more  facilities there are the better.  The second is obvious only once  one is apprised of a statute  governing U. S. shipping known  as the Jones Act. Simply, this  law excludes other countries from  cutting into national- U. S. shipping by making it illegal for a  foreign-owned or foreign-built  ship to clear directly from one  American port to another American port. Its relevance to the  Alaska tanker traffic is profound  in that it would exclude the vast  majority of available tankers,  which have been registered under  flags of convenience to escape  civilized regulations governing  equipment, safety and personnel'  qualification. Not all tankers in  this category are "rust-buckets"  like the Argo Merchant which  sank off Cape Cod last Christmas,  but all rustbuckets are in this  category, and the category itself  exists only as a result of the oil  giants' boundless desire to move  their merchandise on the cheap.  In short, the rustbuckets  wouldn't be allowed into the  Washington ports, but they would  into Kitimat. That is obviously  the kind of deal Resources Minister Gillespie is making in Washington, promises of tight new shipping controls by the Department  of Transport notwithstanding.  Without that advantage the oil  companies would hardly be interested in Kitimat.  Still, the decision must wait  upon an official study of the route  by Dr. Andrew Thompson and  unless that study comes up a  shameless whitewash Gillespie  will never have the chance to  see his bargain realized.

The Legislature adjourned for  an Easter break on April 6. It's  still adjourned. And the premier  refuses to let MLA's know if or  when they'll be called back to do  their job to get our economy back  on the rails.  Statistics Canada has just reported that the number of people  without jobs - in the rest of  Canada - went down slightly  last month.  But in British Columbia, the  number of people looking for  work is higher than ever. The  actual unemployment rate has  jumped to 9.5 percent. (Seasonally adjusted, it's 9.1 percent.)  Statistics Canada also indicates  that business activity in other  parts of the country is slowly  increasing.  In British Columbia, the only  increasing activity is the number  JUST LEAVE YOUR PAPER OPEN AND CHECK OFF A FEW HINTS  of bankruptcy papers being filed -  the bankruptcy rate continues to  accelerate.  Soon students will start looking  mraer jobs to help pay in-  cica. tuition fees and continue  their education. Their changes of  finding those jobs ar. in'-^pr  than ever before.  It's both tragic and scandalous.  The Conference Board of  Canada stated in a report last  month that British Columbia is  the only province in Canada  which has the potential to "generate sufficient new jobs to absorb  labour force entrants ".  But the government is taking  a holiday. And while the government takes its vacation, additional thousands of British Columbians are thrown out of work.  The finance minister says  everything is "rosy" because  the province's books are sure to  balance when he issues the fourth  quarter report. (That report, by  the way, won't be ready until  July or August because the  calculations are apparently a little  more complicated than usual  this year.)  He says the government's  number one priority is 'fiscal  restraint'. Not jobs.
