Ferry Corporation for the Horseshoe Bay-  Langdale run seems to be passing  its first test of the summer with  at least a passing grade. Reports  indicate that while, on the  severest test to date, there were  constant overflows at the Horseshoe Bay terminal just prior to  the July 1st weekend, basically  the new schedule has proven  effective in handling the heavy  -summer traffic with most sailings being pretty close to their  scheduled time.  At the most recent meeting of  the Sunshine Coast committee on  the ferry system with Bill Bouchard, Assistant Traffic Manager,  B.C. Ferry Corporation, both the  community representatives present and Bouchard expressed  basic satisfaction with the manner  in which the summer schedule  was  operating.      The   possible  alterations which were discussed  in the schedule at a previous  meeting have, however, proved  unworkable. Bouchard said that  he had investigated fully the  possibility of having the present  sailing ofthe Queen of New Westminster scheduled for 2:40 p.m.  moved back one hour but that  there was no way this could be  achieved without tangling the  schedules of the boats normally  on the Nanaimo run. The discussed change in the morning  which would see one of the triangle runs coming in here in the  morning instead of the middle  of the day would appear to be impractical at this time because of  the heavy tourist traffic in the  middle part of the day.  In regards to the proposed  fall schedule, Bouchard expressed an interest in a possible  public questionnaire to be circulated by  means of the  local  newspapers in order to get public  input. The questionnaire would  be drawn up by the Assistant  Traffic Manager himself and  would appear in the papers at  the end.of August..

Tj^e occasion of the protest was the  unexpected reading by Regional Board Chairman Harry  Almond of abrief prepared fi% themeeting by Mr. G. Matson  of Leek Road in Roberts Creek!The brief advocated the setting  aside of industrial land for future use in the Roberts Creek area.  The storm broke because ttoe brief seemed in direct contradiction with all that had gone before in the reading and discussion ofthe first draft of the7Roberts Creek Official Community Plan.   A locialr reporter ym��o had claimed that there were  one of the three major growth  centres on the coast. The Roberts  Creek area can supply important  aesthetic and recreational .values  to the whole region because of  its strategic location."  At the outset of the meeting'  the   committee   was   introduced  by regional board representative <  Harry Almond who explained that  this was only the first of several  cussed including the enforcement of existing by-laws such as  logging in or by creeks, how to  police pollution aspects of the  plan, specifically airplane noise.  It was generally agreed that  airplanes were a nuisance but  not method of, controlling the  problem could be decided upon.  It was mentioned that Bowen  Island had petitioned both the  industrial plans "for theRobellts!

The preamble to the first draft  of the official community plan,  which was prepared by the committee taking into account the  questionnaire which had been;  circulated last fall in the Roberts  Creek area, said "Roberts Creek  is a rural residential community  located between two mam centres. This plan is designed to  maintain the distinctive personality of Roberts Creek as a separate  community.

In general the residents of  Roberts Creek seemed to be  satisfied with the plan, particularly the preamble and the  meeting grew irate after the brief  read at the end of the meeting  called into question much that  had gone before. Almond stated  clearly at the beginning of his  reading of Matson's brief that it  was not a committee recommendation and, in fact, the committee  had not seen the brief. Afterwards he admitted that he himself did endorse it and felt that  now was the time to prepare for  localized industry in the upper  Roberts Creek area, above the  powerlines.  Distinction  The main bone of contention  seemed to lie in the distinction  of a residential Roberts Creek  below the highway and Upper  Roberts Creek above the highway. The people of Upper  Roberts Creek present. at the  meeting clearly did hot want to  be part of an industrial reserve  of have '"��� non-aestheticl "'plans  shifted into their area, as was  the case with the proposed  limited-access highway which  was advocated five years ago.  Problems  In addition to the controversy  which broke out over the reading  at the end of the meeting of  Matson's brief, many other  individual   problems   were   dis-  to fly over Bowen Island. Aviation regulations specify that  planes remain 500 feet over unpopulated areas and 1,000 feet  over populated areas.  Other  The Roberts Creek community  plan also calls for the propane  tanks at Roberts Creek wharf to  be removed when the lease runs  out, though regional planner  Robyn Addison pointed out that  the lease was good until 1984.  Recycling was mentioned in the  plan and was to be encouraged.  Some strong feeling was expressed by the meeting about the  regional board's rejection of the  public questionnaire and it was  agreed that recycling should be  encouraged and that instead of a  weekly garbage pick-up some of  the money so spent should be  directed instead into recycling of  some waste materials. The community plan also endorsed a  restaurant in the commercial  core around the mouth of Roberts  Creek where there is a thirteen-  acre commercial area set aside  for future development.  Future  One thing would appear certain: with the endorsement by  the regional board representative  Chairman Almond, of the concept of an industrial area for  Upper Roberts Creek and the  strongly' voiced opposition of  the residents of that area for such  a concept, future public meetings  to discuss the Roberts Creek  community plan should prove  interesting.  Pender taxes high  McLelland came to politics  after a career in broadcasting  and journalism. This is his second term in Victoria, having been  first elected during the last  parliament as a member of the  opposition under the NDP.  Government. When queried  about how he felt about being  a cabinet member McLelland  said simply, "It's great!"  In outlining his department's  achievements since he had been  the Minister of Health, he said  "We have just instituted one of  the most long-term programs  anywhere in our coverage of  these people in nursing homes  under the Medicare umbrella.  Now they can get needed assistance without discrimination."  He also pointed to the programs  instituted . for the treatment  of alcoholism. "It has been  said," claimed McLelland,  that our treatment and training  centres for alcoholics are about  five years ahead of any such  centres in the United States."  McLelland professed no familiarity with the problem of  herbicide spraying in this area  but said the use of herbicides in  the Okanagan had only gone a-  coast, but that this was a federal  responsibility and. that the  Federal Government had offered  no leadership on the question.  Other issues that the Health  Minister agreed to make comment on unofficially were the  questions of the agricultural land  reserve and the state of the  B.C. economy. On the land  reserve question, McLelland  claimed that there was probably  more land under agricultural  reserve right now than there  was when the NDP initiated  the policy: "More is coming  in all the time," he said  "but the thing was so badly administered that some of the land  in reserve already had houses  built on it and had to be taken  out." As for the economy,  McLelland said that things were  better in B.C.than they had been  in years. "Fifteen thousand jobs  have been created since we took  over," said the Minister of  Health, "and the unemployment  rate is dropping."  The Health Minister acknowledged that he was enjoying his  few days of relaxation on the  Sunshine Coast. It is believed to  be his first visit to the area.  As the Sunshine Coast Recreation Commission found out in  their foray into Pender Harbour  promoting the new recreation  scheme, last week was a bad  time to be advocating new tax  increases. It was the week that  local residents, along with people  throughout the province, got their  1977 tax notices, and as at least  one irate speaker pointed out,  the news was mostly bad.  Winner and still champion  among local tax hogs was as usual  the school board, which increased  its rate 8.5% from 40.9 mills to  44.7   mills.      Next   in  line   for  Pender Harbour landowners was  the Pender Harbour Fire Department with a hefty 6.3 mills,  highest on the Sunshine Coast,  and up 43% since 1975. Next  was the Regional District, which  recorded the largest jump in  many years, up 24% from 3.1  mills to 4.2 mills. The hospital  tax, next in line of dubious distinction, took a healthy 17% hop  from 2.5 mills to 2.9 mills.  The grand total: a whopping  59.11 mills.

Faustmann  There were two displays on last  week at Elphinstone High School,  presented by Marta MacKown,  and Frank Fuller, members ofthe  school's Socials Department.    ���  Mr.     Fuller's     presentation,  titled These Were the Reasons,  was a twenty-five minute slide  and tape show.  It dealt with'the  history of union organization in  British Columbia, spanning the  years from the beginning of this  century   to   the   present   date.  Prepared by a group called B.C.

Hydro heedless  '-"-���'   Well  the  Regional  Board  reared  up  ''���'and complained to the Provincial Govern-  "rnent, or to B.C.  Hydro at least,  and  t." Hydro wrote back and said we appreciate  your concern but we are going to do it  _, _anyway.    Manfully the Regional Board  j     decided to file the letter.   Obviously they  j     felt that the battle had  been lost for  .      another year and nothing now remained  ?     to do. Perhaps they are right.  }    _.   If there is a single issue which almost  .    - everyone views with suspicion it is the  ( 7spraying of vegetation with herbicides.  \   ."Virtually  no one  feels  good  about  it.  I   ' As  was  written   here   several   months  I      ago,   even   the   expert   at   B.C.

V  H.T >  s  !-���'-  &  ft'-*  \ltt\K  It bears endlessly repeating that large  institutions are very sensitive to aroused  1 'public opinion.   In the Coast News office  this week, and space permitting some-  -where  on these pages,   is  a two-page  " 'letter written to a resident of this com-  "���munity over the personal signature of  'Robert Bonner, Chairman of B.C. Hydro.  Now  the  letter itself is  a  predictably  "��� bland   statement   of   the   pro-herbicide  position and is remarkable only in that it  -'was written at all.   Apparently the name  of the adressee appeared on a petition  ���:from the Sunshine Coast - nothing else.  A file number is given in reference to  that letter.   It is 296.6.25.    Perhaps we  should all be writing to Mr. Bonner at  B.C. Hydro, 970 Burrard Street, Vancouver, B.C., V6Z 1Y3, making reference  to that file number. If. they're sensitive  enough to public opinion to write a letter  to someone who just put their name on  a petition perhaps a flood of letters  might cause some confusion.  Certainly one feels that to shrug one's  shoulders at the renewed spraying as  the Regional Board did this week is self-  defeating. It is entirely possible that the  experts who form the committees who  approve herbicide use might just be replaced if they demurred at the spraying  program. And anyway experts in every  generation have been proven wrong  before.  Clearing brush by hand, under experienced supervision, would seem to be  an ideal summer job for high school and  university students. The brush under the  power lines must come down before it  interferes with the lines, admittedly,  but to rely on repeated sprayings of  chemicals which can cause dreadful  diseases if they find their way into the  human body - which they can do via  water supply or the flesh of animals  which have grazed there - leaves one  decidedly uneasy.  It's not a new issue. John Hind-Smith  and others locally have been vocal in  complaint against it for years. Perhaps  if more of us added our voices to their  efforts and kept at it somebody would  finally listen. Not to keep trying is unacceptable. To accept the use of herbicides by Hydro in the face of public unease and protest is weakness. They must  be made to listen and they will be if  enough people care to make them. If  the use of herbicides in your neighbourhood makes you uneasy, keep telling  them.  Canada Day  It!  is  ftL  '- Despite the clamorous call of the federal government for great national rejoicing, it would appear that Canadians  generally sought to enjoy peace and  quiet during the Canada Day holiday  weekend. Certainly there was no shortage of prominent politicians 'getting  away from it all' in this area. Spotted  over the weekend was Federal Cabinet  . Minister Ron Basford who seemed to be  taking his government's call for public  celebration somewhat calmly on the Sunshine Coast. Provincal Health Minister  Bob McLelland was another notable  more inclined to seek relaxation in this  area than to be seen publicly celebrating  Canada's  birthday,  either  in  his   con  stituency in Langley or in Victoria. Then  there was a third politician who declined  to be identified but was described as  very prominent whose boat ran into  trouble Friday afternoon entering Gibsons harbour and who had to be rescued  with his two companions from their  thirty-two foot boat. A real mystery  man and most anxious not to be identified. Whatever he was doing it certainly  wasn't public celebration.  It is to be hoped that Canadians all,  wherever they found their quiet enjoyment found also a quiet moment to  feel gratitude for the existence of this  unique country of theirs.  . .from the files of Coast News  S  is;  ii;  ;��,  fi.  fi.

Established early in the twentieth century, Redroofs immediately became popular as a summer resort or as a quiet stopover  on one ofthe Union Steamship's excursion runs; for many years  the only menas of ingress and egress. Beside the wharf, a beautiful beach faced waters always calm and clear. At high tide,  until a road bisected it, this lagoon became accessible from  Halfmoon Bay. A plot of level ground nearby, later to become  known as Coopers' Green, throughout the years pleasured  many a picnicker from far and near. In the name of progress,  this little pool will quite likely be filled in any day now to make  room for a much-needed house and driveway.    L.R. Peterson;  Slings & Arrows  George Matthews  Musings  John Burnside  We dropped the curtain last  week on the black comedy of the  Iron Creek Cavalry as the intrepid  and inept adventurers were blundering in the dark on the side of  a mountain somewhere at the  west end of the Crowsnest Pass,  outside of Fernie and above, we  were assured, Iron Creek. Two  of the group, Hank Bath and  Napper Jack, had already despaired of the innumerable repackings of the black mare, the  blundering in precipitous.black-  nss among impenetrable underbrush, and had deserted the little  safari preferring to huddle over  a tiny fire in the midst of it all to  any further wrestlings with the  Kennedy Trail.  The rest of us, three in number, chose to lead the other  three horses on the heels of the  indefatigable Kennedy, our guide  and planner, he of the broken  elbow and the single flashlight.  I said last week that the party was  about evenly divided between  those who thought the trail  had never existed except in some  murky recess of the Kennedy  mind and those who thought it  had once existed but no longer  did. I was of the latter persuasion. I had no doubt whatsoever  that it had once been a trail and  had no doubt, either, that it was  so long ago that nothing larger  than a wood beetle had traversed  that particular mountain ridge  after dark in years. We remaining followers were strung out  in single file groping downwards  in pitch black. It was so dark  that you couldn't see the horse  you were leading. I was fortunate  in that Jack Worthington was ;  ahead of me leading the old  white mare. When he had to  stop I usually got a sense of the  horse's whiteness just before I  walked into it. But the night  was punctuated by the muffled  curses of Thompson behind me  as every time we halted he walked  into the rear end of my slightly  darker horse.  That horse behaved beautifully. I have described him as  having an uncertain temperament  but that was only what I had been ���'.  told. He had run away with -  Kennedy and that diabolical  chubby little man did have the  marks of the horse's rear feet on  his belly but in his dealings with  me he, the horse of course, was  an absolute gentleman. At one  point as we edged around a hairpin bend, with Kennedy's light  long lost in the bush or the bends  ahead, I missed my footing and  fell off the trail coming with all  my weight with a tremendous  yank on the horse's mouth. He  stood stock still and patient till  I scrambled up beside him again.  On another occasion a branch  snagged in his pack and in trying  to pull through he yanked the  whole pack around and under his  lower belly. It was the pack which  held the oats. I felt the tug at the  other end of the bridle as the  horse stopped, felt him lurch towards me, heard the tearing of  the underbrush and he had suddenly stopped again. I called for  the light and up the trail towards  me past the white mare came  Kennedy of the Lamp with his  plaster cast glinting. He flashed  the light on the horse and we  saw the pack upside down under  its belly. Without thinking much  about it I crawled under to loosen  it and straighten it out. It was  only when I go under there and  .started fiddling with the straps  ., underneath the. horse that Kennedy told me it had tried to kick  his head off the previous day and  shone the flashlight on the hoof-  marks on his belly for my further  ��� edification. Again the diabolical  laugh rang out as Kennedy chortled his glee at the sudden, frantic, careful haste of my movements, but again the horse was  patience itself.  In fact there was a very real  bond.between the men and the  horses - Hank Bath excepted, of  course. The horses realized as  fully as the men that Kennedy  had landed us all in an absurd  pickle and that the best way out of  it was co-operation all round.  Sometimes Kennedy's voice  would announce, "Deadfall,  lad$!" and sometimes would  stand by till we got over it with  his light playing on the obstacle.  More often the terrain would not  allow his proximity and we  would find ourselves faced with  a chest-high fallen tree in the  middle of the way in the total  dark. Then it was duck under,  transfer the reins to the other  hand - and now for the horse.  The reins went almost straight up  in the air - firmly, as the horse  you, couldn't see held back.  Coaxing and encouraging and  tugging gently you waited while  the horse inspected the obstacle,  then there was the lunge and the  slackening of the reins and he  was coming and you threw yourself blindly to one side into the  bush so he could land where  you were standing. Then wearily  out of the bush, take your bearings to try to find where the  lamp had gone, or the white  mare, or at least the voices and  the bush blunderings if there  was nothing visible, and on  again.  It was half past three in  morning before we struggled  into a flat clear place on the  bottom. Worthington had  splendid fire burning inside  old tree stump in a matter of  moments and we unpacked and  tied the horses, ate something  canned and wordless with fatigue  crawled inside our sleeping bags  muttering sleepy, cold curses at  the figure of the chuckling Kennedy who was already vanishing,  flashlight, broken carm and all,  back up the trail for -Hank Bath  and Napper Jack.  It was the coldest, darkest,  pre-dawn hour before I woke by  the fire and heard them coming.  From a long way off the crashings  in the bush and the laughter of  Kennedy and the cursing of Nap  per Jack announced their arrival.'  From Hank Bath there came  never a sound.  It was Hank who stumbled  into the firelight first and it was  obvious immediately what had  happened. He was bent double  under an enormous burden.  The top half of his wiry little  body was entirely obscured by  it. Obviously despairing of the  pack ever staying on the black  mare, Hank-had taken the bit  between his teeth, -so to speak,  seized the 'whole pack and stumbled down the mountain with it.  He entered the circle of campfire  on wobbling but determined legs  and found his angle of repose  face-down under the pack by the  side of the fire.  Before we could struggle out  of our sleeping bags to attempt  to revive him our attention was  caught by the arrival of Kennedy,  leading the unloaded black mare  and laughing yet. Counterpoint  to his laughter came another outburst of sorrowful, cursing, eloquence from Napper Jack behind  him as he found a hole that I  had tumbled into a few hours  earlier. He lurched into view,  a woebegone figure hobbling on  the, sides of his cowboy boots  in the last extremity of exhaustion. Nothing in his career as  a bartender had prepared him  for this. Even Hank Bath stirred  under his load and virtually from  the ashes turned towards the last  man in. It was a sight reminiscent of the entry of the dehydrated Jimmy Peters into Empire  Stadium at the end of the marathon in 1954 when he arrived a  half hour ahead but unable to  find or crawl his way once around  the track to the finish line.  It was little Hank from under  his horse-pack and who hated  horses who found the comment.  "It's a strange, strange world  we live in, Napper Jack," he  said and collapsed again.  But now we were there, in the  bottom of Iron Creek in the land  of the elk, and hunting could  begin. Perhaps next week we  could take a last look at the Iron  Creek Cavalry and the great elk  hunt.  Summertime, vacationtime,  mixedblessingtime. A little humble advice is herein offered to the  women readers. You have been  getting up at six o'clock for the  past ten months making lunches,  getting the kids ready for school,  getting the old man ready for  work. The clothes line fell down  in that storm last February,  the washing machine packed up  last March, the roof leaks, the  eaves need painting, the kids'  bedroom window has been broken  for months, the grass needs cutting and the garden needs tending. At last, your husband has  a couple of weeks off so he can  put everything right before September attacks again.  You have a list, either mental  or written. The first week he has  to fix up the old homestead. You  know from experience that if he  doesn 't,; gef it: done ��� right ��� away  then it won't get done. The  second week is family week, that  traditional time when the whole  family gets to spend 24 hours a  day together in the station wagon  or the tent for a whole glorious  seven days. The first day in that  great little camp ground you love  in Manning Park, you know the  one, where you and the hubby  went hiking and fishing the year  before you got married. God, it  was romantic. The kids are sure  to love it. The next day, Penticton, you can eat in that little.  Italian restaurant, you know the  one, (sorry it was torn down in  1967), where you ate on that  great weekend with Bert and  Janet in 1965.  . Now that you are this far the  kids would love to see Banff;  remember on the honeymoon,  you went swimming everyday  in the hotsprings. It's a long  way but he's always enjoyed  .driving. How many times has  he told you he always wanted to  be a cross-country truck driver?  Two days in Banff will he gloriously relaxing for him, just the  thing he needs before going back  to that tedious job. On the  way back you could spend a day  in Nakusp. Remember two years  ago when you met that couple  from ' Portland, you remember,  they had four kids almost the  same ages as yours and you put  them to bed early and went  skinny dipping in the lake and  stayed up until one o'clock talking. The next night you could  stay in that campsite by the lake  in Hope. Remember your husb-.  and and Billy went fishing and  the boy caught his first fish, his  father was so proud of him.  m  Tacking, slanting against a thirty-knot wind  To where the action is, and plumb shifts  Like hands of a clock with springs gone wild;  Fishing at their best where nothing stays pinned;  Swirling in flocks like snow upon green drifts:  Like a mind never at rest, they are at rest.  Realisant souls are the souls solidly  Set in these unsolid worlds and spaces.  With everything restless, nothing staying Just so;  I keep in this eternal state of fission:  Back from a mission, off towards a mission;  Simultaneously I return and go.  Jackpine Sonnets       Milton Acorn  You make all the preparations, he doesn't have to worry  about a thing except the clothesline, the eaves, the kids' window,  the lawn, the garden, and if he  wouldn't mind, the house needs a  good cleaning. You're too busy  planning the trip and he's always  said how much he likes to clean  the house and besides you've  been doing it all year, "Thank  you Sweetheart." No you're  sorry, there just isn't enough  room for beer in the cooler, the  kids will need some cold refreshments. "You know how they hate  to sit in the car mile after mile -  don't think it would be good for  you either. Remember last year  you had two bottles of beer for  lunch and couldn't take the kids  looking for rattlesnakes. They  were so disappointed, you'd  promised. Remember how terrible you felt about it."  Before you do it to him again  this year mother, let me tell you  that I understand how nice it must  be to have a full time rather than  a part time partner to help share  the responsibility of home and  family. But, don't do it! Let me  give you a glimpse at the kind of  thing he has been thinking about  for the past eleven and a half  months of that tedious job you  referred to earlier.  That last Friday before the holiday starts he's going to get out  right at quitting time rather than  stay around to finish that last  piece of work. He's going to buy  a round for the boys at the local  pub, then he's going straight over  to that car lot and put his vacation  pay down on that little sports car  he's been looking at for the last  three months. After the car wash  and wax he's going to drop by the  house for a few minutes to pack  his golf clubs and a few serviceable duds, kiss you and the kids  goodbye for the week and he's  heading off to California with the  top down for some good golf,  good food, good company (his  own) and high living.  Don't worry, he'll be back next  Saturday when he can hire the kid  down the street to fix the clothes  line, paint the eaves and take care  ofthe grass and the garden. He'll  hire a baby sitter that night and  and take you out for the classiest  evening you've spent since getting married. After a night like  that you're sure not to mind his  jumping into his new car next  morning to get out to the airport  where he is supposed to meet  those fellows for the flight to  Ibiza for the week of skin diving  and sailing they've been planning  sinpe Christmas. And don't  worry about the cost. That little  secretary down at work, you  know, that nice, good looking  blonde one has offered to let them  stay with her and her sisters in  the villa they've rented for the  summer, and you know how  cheap things are in Ibiza. They  even have the use of one of the  girl's ex-husband's sailboat, so  so its hardly going to cost a cent.  If you catch my drift, you may  see that what you have been planning for summer fun may be a  little different than what the old  man has in mind. You're not  going to get everything you  want and, needless to say,  neither is he, but you all might  have a better summer together  if you don't make too many demands on one another. Good luck  and happy holidays.  V LETTERS to the EDITOR  Premature     Centenary     Rewarding    Pender clarification  Editor:  An exceptionally well attended  community meeting last Monday,  June 27th heard the first draft  proposals for Roberts Creek's  development within the regional  district. There was general  acceptance of the plan's statement that the unique rural and  residential characteristics of this  area should be retained.  As the meeting drew to a close  after nearly 2 V. hours discussion  . of both the basic premise and  specific policies within the draft,  regional board representative  Harry Almond then chose to read  a brief which had been given to  him prior to the meeting by a  man who was in the audience  all evening. The statement read  by Almond proposed policies in  direct opposition to those drawn  up by the appointed committee -  re: industrial development in  Area'D'.    . '  The members of the audience  who had remained to hear their  elected representative give  credence to this conflicting view  were quite voluble in their outraged response. They may not  have been made aware of an  equally exasperating example of  and lack of responsibility.  Despite the fact that the whole  evening had been spent supposedly to inform the community  of basic policies in planning for  this area, no one on the committee, but particularly neither  the director or the planner,  Robyn Addison, felt the recent  approval of an 18-unit strata  title or condiminium type development on the. Lower Road had  any bearing on the discussion.  I disagree. 1 feel that the  approval of' such housing development at a time when basic  policies are being formulated is  premature. The regional director had given his approval only  one week earlier. (I learned of  this in the after-math of that  evening's discussion.) To give  approval, if only in principle,  of such a project, especially when  a public forum is readily available, can only be construed as  disregard for the democratic  process.  ���   R.

Box 158, Windsor,  Nova Scotia BON 2TO  Beaches  Editor:  Logs and wood on our beaches  are a very important resource for  many people. They are a source  of firewood, rough building  materials, fence posts and rails,  bean poles, shakes, materials to  carve or just odd shapes of wood  to collect and admire.  Logs are used for seats, backrests and picnic tables. Children  use them for endless games,  jungle gyms, forts and make-  believe boats or rafts.  Not least, wood on many of our  beaches prevents erosion. A  few years ago logs were marked  and the public warned not to  disturb them, in recognition of  their protective function in holding the beaches.  What good reason then for  spending money' to clean the  beaches? Most of the logs are  grey with age and never leave the  beach to hazard navigation. The  hazard is from dead-heads and  sodden logs, too heavy to get up  the beach. It would be more  practical to collect these sinkers  and pulp them. Cheaper too!  The Jogging industry is always  losing logs in transit, and because  they are a marketable item, they  are quickly picked up by beachcombers. Clean beaches would  be an invitation for tides and  storms to deposit these marketable logs back up the beach where  they would be harder to retrieve.  Isn't it about time we were  consulted about things that touch  the lives of so many of us instead  of told - for example - "the government is going to clear off the  beaches" ? This kind of debris -  the clean flotsam of the sea -  B.C.'s coastal dwellers have  turned into a useful and interesting resource. To get rid of it  would simply deprive a lot of  people of much enjoyment and  homely profit - and also would  cause a quite unnecessary public  expense. Many of us are against  this proposed plan.

Daly  An Aspirant  Unity  Editor:  Most Canadians believe ways  and means must be found to preserve the unity of Canada; to  promote its welfare and to assure  its survival.       <  With this in mind maybe the  following "Ten Steps to Canadian  Unity Through Education"  (attached) might be the answer.  These ten steps were suggested  by Mr. Lloyd Dennis, (Director  of Education, Brookville, Leeds  and Greenville County Board of  Education), at a recent conference I attended in St. John's, Newfoundland, June 12 -14.  Surely, a comprehensive curriculum for Canadian studies  throughout the schooling years  would help develop understanding and mutual respect among  school age Canadians. Schools  should start to talk'about what  Canadians have in common rather  than emphasizing the differences.  In short, the "Key" to a better  Canada for all Canadians can  . only be achieved through education.  J. T. (Jock) Smith  Chairman, Surrey School Board  Proposed Steps:  1. The encouragement of a  national ministry of education.  2. The adoption of a Canadian  code of ethics in education.  3.. . The creation of a national  bureau of educational exchange.  4. The issuance of student  travel vouchers.  5. The development and optional  adoption of a Canadian studies  program.  6. The de-emphasis of schools  as job preparation, and the re-  emphasis of values education.  7. The provision of educational  services through national television.  8. The formation of a Council for  Canadian Education.  9. The issuance of a plea to those  engaged in the educational exercise to give first priority to those  activities which will enhance  Canadian harmony, albeit in  diversity.  10. The encouragement of repatriation and revision of the Canadian Constitution in keeping with  a new concept of national purpose, diversity and equality.  Editor:  The reporting on the recreation  meeting in Pender Harbour under  the title "Pender learns recreation expensive" neecjs some clarification.   First, the over-all tone  of the meeting seemed quite receptive  to the recreation  plan.  When only TWO questioners out  of   eighty   people   referred   to  their taxes, one could not assume  that the whole meeting felt the  plan to be that "expensive" as  your title suggests.    Two mills  would   only   raise   the   average  taxpayer's' taxes from fifteen to  twenty dollars per year which is  approximately $1.75 per month.  What a small price to pay for  such   a   tremendous   recreation;  and theraputic facility in Pender  Harbour.  Many Pender Harbour  residents realize that this is an  excellent   opportunity    for    the  area to finally  have  recreation  for all ages on their doorstep.  Also,   the   recreation  plan   fills  the  gap   in  recreation   on   the  peninsula  with  the  major  projects being spaced evenly throughout ' the district  -  a  pool  at  Pender, better curling facilities  at Sechelt, a community hall at  Gilker   Park,   and   Gibsons   independently providing a pool for  the south end of the peninsula.  Secondly, to clarify the financing of the pool, the School Board  is providing $75,000 for a water  reservoir, and the remaining  $275,000 is included in the Recreational Budget plus $25,000  yearly operating deficit. Of that  $275,000, a good percentage will  be funded through the Department of Recreation in Victoria,  therefore an extra saving to taxpayers. An administrator of  funding from Victoria visited  Pender Harbour and was amazed  at the growth of the area and  the lack of recreation facilities.  The administrator was very impressed with the Community-  School concept stating that combining the school and swimming  pool would be a great saving to  taxpayers.  Thirdly, your reporter failed to  mention fire Chief Barry Wiibee's statement that a sprinkler  system using the pool as a reservoir would be "great initial fire  protection". Also, a sprinkler  system expert, Peter Sternburg,  'now doing a study on sprinklers  for Pender Harbour School told  a member of the Aquatic Committee that a sprinkler system connected to the pool would be  "excellent" as it is crucial to  cool the fire immediately and this  is the advantage of a sprinkler  system.  In conclusion, perhaps the  reporter for your paper could  have brought out these positive  ' points that were discussed at the  recreation meeting because  overall the Pender Harbour public < was very receptive. Once  again the Pender Harbour Aquatic Committee greatly appreciates  Pender's support. - for a small  community, we had a much  greater turn-out than anywhere  else on the peninsula!

Hospitality Committee hopes  to provide tourist accommodation  3.  One of the committees recently  set up by the Gibsons Chamber  of Commerce to investigate one  aspect of the upcoming Sea  Cavalcade and Dog Fish Derby  weekend extravaganzas was  the Hospitality Commitee. At  a recent general meeting of the  Chamber of Commerce, Bill  Edney pointed out that one of  the crying needs in this area is  accommodation for tourists  during the peak periods of  summer activity.  "It's a difficult problem"  said Edney, ' 'in that if we had a  hundred room hotel it would not  be big enough in the peak weekend periods and there would be  no way to keep it full during the  rest ofthe year."  One proposal advanced was  Gibsons should initiate a similar  hospitality program to those  presently in vogue in such  places as Stratford, Ont., Banff  and Jasper in Alberta, and  through much of Europe. This  would see private residences  with spare rooms being opened  to visitors on a bed and breakfast basis. It was stressed at  the outset that no such program  would go into action on any of  the peak weekends until it was  ascertained that all of the local  hotels and motels in the vicinity  of Gibsons had reported no further vacancies on their  premises.  A committee was struck under  the chairmanship of Edney to look  into the possibility of instituting  such a program in the village  this   year   for   such   occasions  as the Sea Cavalcade and the Dog  Fish Derby and other fishing  derbies. It included Mrs. Agnes  Labonte, Mrs. Marion Alsager,  Jim Holt, president of the  Gibsons OAP Branch, and editor  of the Coast' News, John  Burnside.  At a recent meeting the committee came up with some guidelines for the proposed program.  It was agreed that the Coast  News office could serve as a  centre for registration for the  program, initially to make a  list of those members of the  community who would wish to  offer their homes as part of the  program, subsequently as a  placement centre for tourists  in search of accommodation.  It was agreed by committee  members that the fees charged  should be uniform for the bed  and breakfast service, possibly  in the neighbourhood of $15.00  for single accommodation and  and $25.00 for double accommodation. The question of whether or not supper should be provided and whether a family rate  should be offered was held in  abeyance until such time as a  meeting with the interested  hospitality folk could be held.  The committee at their meeting  again stressed that no such program would take place until all  . commercial hospitality venues  were full and that every attempt  would be made to match the  guests and hosts for basic comparability.  The  advantages  are obvious.  First the money to  be  earned  from such hospitality work goes  directly into the pockets of  the community and secondly with  hospitable accommodation  available tourists would be inclined to stay for more than the  minimum amount of time and this  would have a subsidiary  economic effect for the village  economy, stores, restaurant,  theatre, etc.  Such programs have worked  well wherever they have been  instituted and the committee  could see no reason why a similar  program should not prove very  successful in this area. At the  committee meeting President  Holt of the Senior Citizens felt  that many seniors might welcome  the few extra dollars and in  some cases the extra company  as well.  Anyone interested in exploring  this idea further with the committee should leave their name  and phone, number at the Coast  News office starting Tuesday of  this week.

II CBC Radio  ice  THE GYPSIES OF THE WOODS  Scattered      through      Texas,  Arizona  and   the   other   southwestern states, there are many  homes roofed or sided with B.C.  cedar.  They used to ship shakes  down there by the boxcar load  and  probably  still  do.      Shake  roofs  are  a tremendous  status-  symbol   in  those   arid,   treeless  places.    The buyers must have  been rich because the price per  bundle by the time they hit the  retailers   in   Dallas   or   El   Paso  was   at   least   four   times    the  roughly $3.00 we were paid in the  mid-fifties.     I used to envision  a   stereotypical   oil-tycoon   with  Stetson   and   stogie,   gazing   in  satisfaction    as    his    expensive  hacienda was topped with rainforest roofing.   I'm sure he gave  little thought to the shakecutters  slugging  out  a  living   in   some  doleful swamp.    Yet we needed  him  more  than  he   needed  us  because his whims kept the price  up.     When the U.S.   demand  slacked-off,     the     price     dive-  bombed.      It  was  better,   if  a  guy could afford it, to stockpile  when the market depressed and  just wait.    God knows, some of  that cedar had waited for half ,  a century or more.  Shakecutting is a pretty  maverick trade at the best of  times. It tends to attract eccentric  independent characters who balk  at taking the orders a regular  woods-job involves. The shake-  game is the chief of the marginal  forest-activities that include  salal-picking, huck-harvesting  and (at one time) the collecting  of cascara bark. It is usually  undertaken in old logging-slash  where cedar chunks, snags  and windfalls can be found in  profusion. Shakes have been  made from spruce and even hemlock at various, pioneer times  but cedar splits cleaner, lasts  much longer and has always been  . the logical raw material. The  Forestry (unless a trespass is  discovered) generally approves of  shakers since their gypsy profession helps rid the woods of much  inflammable    debris. Many  forest-fires are triggered by  lightning strikes on old cedar  snags.  A primary attraction of shake-  cutting is the low-overhead involved. The most-expensive item  required is a good  power-saw.  ��etfer Trower  A packing-frame (the small press  on which* the bundles are put-  together and strapped) can easily  be constructed from a few two-by-  fours, a piece of three-ply, a  packing-iron, some nails and a  couple of bolts. The frows  (splitting-knives with right-  angled handles) don't cost much  and the the mallets, used to  drive them down, can be readily  fashioned from yew or other  hardwood.  Top-grade cedar splits clean  as glass. The shakes pop free like  tapered miracles as you turn the  block. A cutter's clearing is in  essence, a rude factory. The  process moves from falling (if  snags are being used) through  bucking, splitting the rounds into  blocks, splitting the blocks into  shakes and packing them in  bundles. The bundles, ten  courses high and thirty-six  inches long, are the finished  product. The shakes are laid  taper to taper overlapped,  pressed tight in the middle and  cinched down with aluminum-  straps nailed to a couple of cross-  sticks. Corrugated wood close  to the butt and unsuitable for  tapers, is split into shake-sized  slabs called blanks. These are  sawn lengthwise into shake-  equivalents at the mills. The  problem remains of getting  this product to the nearest  access-road.  On sidehills, this can be circumvented by stringing a tight-'  line of thin, stell wire, stapling  the blocks to this and letting  gravity take care of the rest.  The blocks whistle down the line  and kick free at the roadside  bottom where the splitters wait.  This is fine for steep shows  but on more gradual slopes  or flat valley-bottoms where  cedar proliferates, it is a different proposition. If you happen  to be working on contract for a  specific mill, roads may be  pushed into the various settings  and the bundles dragged out on a  stoneboat by a small cat. Few  shoestring operators however,  can afford such elaborate equi  pment. The alternative is to tote  your payload out on your back  like a human mule. My introduction to the shake-business  mainly involved this butt-busting  chore.  Since I've recorded these  experiences in considerable  detail elsewhere, I'll only reprise  them briefly here. In the winter  of 1954-55, while subsisting  very frugally on the sixty-acre  property my mother then owned  near Port Mellon, I ran into a  guy called Judd Kowalski.  Judd, a big, black-moustached,  second-generation Pole was a  shake-cutter from the Mission  area, in search of new territory.  He'd hit town with a red-haired  mistress called Freda and a  couple of whacked-out old  characters about three jumps  from the glue factory, he must  have shanghaied from the City  Mission. They'd set up shop in  a couple of cabins behind the  Seaside Hotel and commenced  to practise their trade. I was  pretty desperate for dollars as  usual, so I joined the crew.  Charlie and Albert, the two  grizzled drifters, were too enfeebled to cope with anything  heavier 'than splitting and  packing. That left the rest of the  labour to Judd and myself.  Labour was the operative word  when   it   came   to   packing-out  the bundles and blanks. We  were cutting in a swampy hollow,  several-hundred feet below the  nearest access road and the trail  was uphill. It was windfall wood  that had been sucking up moisture for decades. The lightest  bundles weighed well over a  hundred pounds. It was a bull-  work   proposition   all   the   way.  We were hired on a piecework  basis and after a couple of very  skimpy cheques, I came to the  conclusion that I was being rather  grossly underpaid in relation  to the frequently gruelling  toil. The feeling of being exploited continued to grow' but  I suppressed it for awhile.  I had little alternative job wise.

LIST PRICE M17.00  SALE PRICE     84.95  TIRE & SUSPENSION CENTRE  The logging-camps were still  closed and I was persona-non-  grata at the pulpmill through  circumstances too involved to  go into here. I consoled myself  by thinking that Judd was at  least, teaching me the business.  One weekend in Vancouver  however, I ran into a couple  of guys from Mission who knew  Judd. "~ Apparently, he was  notorious for short-percentaging  his crews.' I resolved to get out  from under.  The answer was  staring  me  right in the face and. one  weekend, it hit me like a ton of  bricks. The timber on my  mother's property consisted  largely of looper-ridden,  second-growth hemlock but I  had never checked it out for shake  material before. I took a prowl  around and located several good  windfalls and a number of  promising snags. What the  hell, I'd go into business for  myself  Thus is free-enterprise born,  I suppose. I teamed up with a  neighbour called Mike Cassin,  later to marry my mother, and  we entered the shake game on  our own. I even borrowed  one of Judd's powersaws on the  pretext of cutting firewood,  to buck our initial blocks.  Considering the way he'd been  underpaying me, it seemed like  ironic justice. When Jake found  out what we were up to, he was  pretty irked to say the least  but there was damn little he could  do about it. He had lost himself a  pack-mule and gained a competitor.  That, in a nutshell, is how  I became an independent shake-  cutter. Mike and I worked  the claim for about a year and a  half. We had our ups and downs  but in many ways, it was one of  the freest periods of my life.  We scraped and. scrounged that  property until there was scarcely  a scrap of usable cedar left.  After that, I moved on to other  activities but I will always reme  mber my days as a woods-  gypsy with a certain fondness.  Long before we were finished,  Judd ran out of cedar, goodwill  and credit and left the district  under a cloud; He was the sort  of shifty operator who burns up  friends and territory fast.

Both films coming to the Twilight this week are rated for  mature audiences by the censor  but the policy of the theatre  management in providing varied  fare is continued in that both  films are of a highly contrasting  nature once again. One of the  films is the latest in the series  of dramatic disaster adventures  to appear recently, Airport '77,  and the other is a saucy British  comedy entitled Spanish Fly.  Airport '77 has an all-star  cast including Jack Lemmon, Lee  Grant, Brenda Vaccaro, Olivia  de Haviland, Joseph Cotten,  Darren McGavin, Christopher  Lee, George Kennedy, with  James Stewart in a cameo role.  In talking of the making of the  movie, Jack Lemmon says "I  crashed four times in the first  twenty minutes.'-' Fortunately  for Lemmon and his fans, the four  crashes took place while he was  flying a 747 simulator. "It reacts  precisely as a loaded 747 would -  you feel that weight, you feel that  plane move. As you go, the  ground moves in front of you, or  the air, the clouds. It's wild,"  said Lemmon, "truly fantastic."  The movie will play the Twilight  Theatre Wednesday .' through  Saturday July 6th to 9th at the  regular showing time of 8:00 p.m.  The British comedy tells us that  it is concerned with two spent  women chasers who find themselves on an island with oodles  of voracious and voluptuous  women. What can they do, we  are asked, and one presumes  that the answer lies in the film  title. The comedy stars Leslie  Phillips and Terri Thomas, he  of the gap-toothed smile, and will  run at the Twilight Theatre  through Saturday, July 7th to  9th.

Samuel Richardson  had Pamela the housemaid write  dozens of letters home' before  she described the loss of her  virtue. That was in the eighteenth century. Today, of course,  the loss of virtue usually comes on  the back of a postcard, and this  fact, coupled with the sad notation that virtually no one reads  anything' more extensive than  the TV Guide, has probably  proved to be a large setback to  the epistolary style.  Nevertheless, Russell Hoban,  whose name has been mentioned  previously in this column, is  having another go at it. He's  written still another exceptional  novel, called Turtle Diary, and  he's filled it by writing in excerpts from the diaries of the  two main characters. The entries  are made by William G. and  Neaera H., a lonely middleaged  duo presently living in London,  England.  From the isolation of their  small rented rooms, they emerge,  bit by bit, poking their heads'  out of the shells of their lives.  Neaera H., a writer of children's  books, has a water beetle in her  aquarium. She hopes to get a  story from her. "Victoria Beetle's Summer Holiday?" wonders  Neaera in one'sentence. "Bugger  that." she decides in the next.  She feeds the beetle lumps of  hamburger. They get white and  sodden, and float about near the  plastic shipwreck in the aquarium. Neaera goes to the zoo,  instead, looking for an oyster-  catcher but ending up at the tank  where they keep the sea turtles.  She writes: "And in that little  tank the turtles were flying,  flying in the water, submarine  albatrosses. I've read about  them, they navigate hundreds of  miles of , ocean..;I'm always  afraid of being lost, the secret  navigational art of the turtles  seems a sacred thing to me."  William G. lives in a boarding  house with Miss Neap, who works  at the ticket agency, a Mr. San-  dor, who speaks five languages  and carries sausages in his briefcase, and his landlady, Mrs.  Inchcliff. William works in a  bookstore, notes that the manhole  cover near his corner has "K257"  written on it. It is like him that  he would go -home and look up  the number as a Kochel listing  in his copy of the Mozart Companion, discovering, that it referred to Credo Mass in C. It is like  him too, that he should go to the  zoo and be fascinated by the turtles. He writes: "Two of the  turtles at the aquarium are green  turtles, a large one and a small  one. The sign said: 'The green  turtle, Chelonia my das, is the  source of turtle soup...' I am the  source of William G. soup if it  comes to that. Everyone is the  source of his or her kind of soup.  In a town as big as London  that's a lot of soup walking  about."  Neaera approaches her life  with a wistful timidity. Her entries are full of 'maybes' and  'ought to's', and her crisp salad  suppers are full of nourishing  vitamins.     William   is   mordant  Books  with  John  Faustmann  and keen. Although life has him  by the throat he can still manage  an ironic smile, and his descriptions of people take you right  down to the bone in one clean  cut. Here's Harriet, his coworker in the bookshop: "She's a  tall thin girl from quite' a good  family, her father is an MP and  her face is a constant reproach  even though she's not at all bad-  lookirtg. She used to dress very  conservatively, lived at home,  walked as if the streets were  full of rapists and wore shoes  that looked as if they were de-.  signed for self-defence." In  fact, William takes everything  right down to the bone. He  doesn't have much use for  people, whom he considers to  be, generally, a noisy gang of  destructive savages. He includes  himself in this gang, but that  doesn't keep him from getting  upset: "They won't stop killing  the whales. They make dog and  cat food out of them.-face creams,  lipstick. They kill the whales to  feed the dogs so the dogs can  shit on the pavement and the  people can walk in it. A kind of  natural cycle."  Neaera couples her timidity  with a soft and penetrating sensibility. She can tell a person  quickly from their eyes, she can  feel deeply, and she hovers,  throughout the book, just over the  wonderful mystery of things. She  remembers a line from her  dream, and puts it in her diary:  "Those who know it have forgotten every part of it, those who  don't know it remember it completely. Aggravating. Those who  know or don't know what? . I  haven't a clue and what's most  annoying is that something in  me knows what was meant."  Together, William and Neaera,  with the aid of the sympathetic  zoo-keeper, resolve to steal thr  turtles and return them to the  ocean. Their lives turn and turn  around their plan, until finally,  in the dead of night with a rented  van, they crate the turtles, and  drive them off to the sea. In  the process of doing this there ,  are no happy endings. William  and Neaera do not fall in love  and live happily ever after. In  fact, William gets into a fight  with one of the roomers, Mr.  Sandor, for not cleaning his pubic  hairs out of the bathtub after  he's done. Miss Neap, the other  roomer, hangs herself, leaving  behind a modest bank balance  and a stuffed Snoopy dog that  sits on her bed!  But somehow, the navigational  abilities of the turtles seem to  rub off, not only on the characters  but on the readers of this book.  The directions provided have  been written in the palest of ink,  but' they are there. Russell  Hoban has succeeded wildly,  mapping with humour and care  the roads that lead back to ourselves. Or, as William G. would  say: "Where the moon ended  and I began and which was  of no consequence. Everything  was what it was and the awareness of it was part of it."  How fine, when a book can  make you feel that way.  SOUND  LTD.

This annual  event sponsored by the Arts  Alliance of Courtenay attracted  thousands of people from throughout B.C. and artists and craftspeople displayed their creations  in the pleasant surroundings of  the large park. This pastoral  setting was visually perfect for  the wandering minstrels - a relaxed atmosphere ideal for 17th  Century madrigal music. Unfortunately the Madrigal singers  had to deal with the electronic  vibrations coming from the main  stage and the delicate nuances  were often lost in the great outdoors.  It was interesting seeing the  surprised faces of "country  folk" hearing intricate four-part  harmonies for the first time and  although the number of people  who could gather around the  singing group close enough to  hear properly was limited, the  audience was visibly delighted.  Up the Creek performed on  Saturday afternoon to a crowd of  several thousand people basking  in the sun. Again the reaction  of the audience was enthusiastic  and by the time the group had  finished it's set of all original  compositions, there was joyful  dancing and a spontaneous  outburst of calls for more  The audiences ofthe Courtenay  Renaissance Faire were obviously  pleased with the musical talents  our Sunshine Coast presented.  Community Resource Society  receives new Mini-bus  ^"j.  $     '  Driver Susan Bunyan poses with Maureen Kirby and Agnes Labonte of the Sunshine Coast  Community Resources with the new mini-bus that the society has just received.  One of the top priorities of  the newly formed Resource Society in 1973 was a resolve to get  a bus that would be used to take  people who, lacked transportation  to essential health services. Too  often because of this lack, important medical appointments were  missed. No one saw more  clearly the need for continuity  of treatment than did John Lewis,  then physiologist at St. Mary's  Hospital. John and his wife  Faye set up a committee to raise  money for a much needed bus.  Many people believed that the  project was star-gazing, but the  'stars' turned out to be the blinking turn signals on a bus that  ' did arrive on December 13, 1974.  Community support was splendid - to the extent of nearly  $13,000.  90,000 miles later Mini-Bus I  began to show signs of advancing  age and had to be-coaxed along  to complete its daily rounds.  John Bunyan, former driver, was  called in and managed to get it  to Vancouver where a:new bus  was on hand to go into service  here. After some additions and  refinements to the bus. John  brought it to the Peninsula. Last  Sunday the Mini-Bus committee  of the society visited the Bunyan  home to inspect the new vehicle  and found it to be an excellent  unit. However they found John  B. improving upon excellence.  He was upgrading the seat  bolting arrangements, installing  a movable antenna, mounting  heavy duty mud guards, and suggesting even more changes.  Long may it serve.  The Ministry of Human Resources now carries the financing  of the bus by way of a grant to  the Sunshine Coast Community  Resource Society.  Dogwood  Takeout  by Michael Nutland  For all you cultural masochists  who read the Dogwood Takeout,  this is a black day. For all the  rest of you who couldn't care less  I suppose you could care less.  Yes, folks, this one is for your  scrapbook (scrapheap?). The end  of a great period in the history  of journalism is at hand. This  is the final Dogwood Takeout.  (Gasp, sob, wringing of hands)  There, there, don't take on so.  Let me give you a little background; we have been running  the Dogwood for over two years  and during that time it has always  been on our minds to open a  Neighbourhood Pub in the lower  village. As our plans progressed,  we also experienced delays, and  even when we received approval,  we are still at least six months  away from opening the' doors.  Recently an opportunity that was  hard to ignore presented itself.  A hotel in Wells came oh the'maiv3  ket. After investigating the proposition, it seems like an excellent venture for us on a short  term basis. So, if all goes well,  we will be shortly transplanting  ourselves to goldrush country,  there to expand our experience in  all directions,/ from running a  business to learning more about  this province..  While running the cafe, we  have met a multitude of interesting individuals and had some very  unique opportunities presented to  us. (Such as writing a regular  column for the newspaper, which  has left us with a lasting regard  for people who make journalism  a daily chore.) With all the  friends we have made during our  tenure at the Dogwood, the decision to leave this community,  even temporarily, is an extremely difficult one. Having made  it, however, we find ourselves excited at the challenge of doing  something different. The Wells  Hotel has been allowed to run  down and the job of improving  Can there be ghost churches in Canada?;  by Andy Randall  Ghost Towns, and there are  too many in Canada, generally  were caused by the petering out  of ore-bodies, or whatever product had kept thriving communities as happy as bees in summer.  Invariably it followed that homes  had to be left and all those tying  elements of each community.  These' were, school; community  halls; store; and church.  As an old miner in coal; gold;  copper and other minerals, I  have seen the passing of Britannia Beach Mines, and many  others. Almost all left a Ghost  of a church.  Now this didn't mean that the  scattered church members were  "ghosties" too. Far'from it.  They latched themselves on to  the membership .of another  church in their newly adopted  town, camp, or community.  These are not the Ghost  Churches I have in mind. I revisited, in 1970, my old home  town that would be, when I was  younger, a short ride to the south  side of the Scottish border. I  fwas shocked to see in my home  town four churchs so ghosted  that they were not Bingo Halls.  Once lively centres of "hallelu-  jahing" church members, with  often full congregations (twice of  a Sunday), and busy Sunday-  schools, plus choirs that could-  and-did take all the great oratorios in their stride, were now as  dead as mackerels.  When I came back from my  visit to Britain I tried to figure  out the causes of their demise;  and asked myself could it, or  was it, happening, even by degrees in Canada?  Often the blame has been laid  on the physical, moral, and spiritual upheaval of millions in our  western world by the wars of  1914-18 and 1939-45. We can  add the nuclear age to our un-  settlement, plus moon shots,  (space age if you like) and a  host of other things such as the  hippie-age and the yen for drugs.  On top of these things we have  jet-travel; mass media; mind  boggling scientific discoveries;  the permissiveness; and a less  than sacred attitude by many to  the ties of marriage.  We have come of age to a new  scepticism, that breeds indifference or rebellion to much that  had been recognized as absolute  authority, and truth., . As Dr.  Hans Selye, of the University of  Montreal has said, regarding  stress (and this can apply quite  well here), "One of the most  frequent causes of- distress in  man are psychological - that is  to say, lack of adaptability; not  having a code of behaviour. One  reason for this is that the security,  and the.satisfaction of religious  codes has diminished in importance for mankind."  Perhaps because Canada, and  the United States, had not experienced that devastating closeness of the wars that ripped  Britain and Europe apart, they  managed church-wise to stay in  operation. Even in our western  world there have been signs not  always eveident to those outside  the "New Jerusalems" that warn  us we might just have a few  "Bingo Halls" just for the taking  over.  Yes. We have some Ghost  Churches in Canada, churches  that just "passed away" for lack  of congregational support. Churches that could not encourage a  younger generation to take up  the slack of the oldies whose  numbers - by a creeping old age -  decimated the memberships until  they just could not function.  We may have more Ghost  Churches if the trend continues  of young ministers leaving the  ministry with broken spirit and  a shaken faith. And we may  ask why?,  The answer goes deep into the  heart of an enigma that really  disturbs church leaders, whether  ministerial or lay perons whose  function is to keep the church  operating at the local level. Here  is an over-simple statement of  one aspect of' that enigma. It  is this: ��� whereas the congregations of our parents and grandparents era got supreme satisfaction frona the religious codes  of their time, many today are in  varying degrees freethinkers, and  can not accept the absolute authority of ancient Christian dogma,  nor of the claims of a totally inspired bible.  Another is that the young minister who possibly has gone  through a much updated theological spell of training and study, is  often confronted with a hardrock  section of traditionalists, and  fundamentalists, who will let it  be known in no uncertain terms  that they "will not stand for any  of this new-fangled nonsense".  The starry-eyed lad with his collar  in reverse tries to broaden their  minds. He finds his time and  efforts wasted. He then tries to  brighten up the services, for he  knows without the participation  of the younger families a church  is simply marking time, or even  losing way. Tradition wins again.  So what has he left to do with  his ministry? If he capitulates to  the traditional congregation, then  he is being dishonest to himself  and to God, for he is still a freethinker.  This becomes a problem fit  for a Solomon to solve. On the  one hand there are the old, tried  '-:&&?i'-^ 0%-$&<  and true faithful, who are muchr  ofthe bulwark, perhaps financially, upon which the church depends. But they too often are  the ones who quite unconsciously  block the church's progress in  this modern age. And they too  will pass away. On the other  hand there are the freethinkers  inside and outside the church  (they are a great number), the  younger ones too, who feel they  would like to have some services  more in the line of modern pro-:  gress, and realistic thought.  Now if we could use King  Solomon's ruse with the two  mothers to determine who was  the real mother, perhaps we  could get somewhere. with both  factions. But could we? Can if  not be said that "the old guard"  in British churches killed their'  baby rather than allow others  to change any part of what they  stood for? Is it not the younger  ones who would let the 'baby1  die, - in this sense the church -,'  but the sticklers for tradition;  Somehow this reminds me of  the stand some old martinets'  made for trench warfare just  prior to the war of '39-'45, against1  the new idea of mobile action.  Old Nick with the cloven hooves"  has done it well, and he knows.  you can't put the finger on him.  It's all in the church.  So how do you get the outside  in, when the insiders are out on  a limb? The young ones say,  "give us a chance. ,Give us some  scope. Let us let some fresh air  in to the old forms and the ole.  doctrines -' and so on. That, my  friends may just be the answer to  the church's delermna.

The first was from R.W.J.  James of Roberts Creek who ex  .pressed himself as most concerned about what he felt was  the lack of co-operation he had  received from the Regional  Board planning staff in his efforts  to install a mobile home court on  Flume Road in Roberts Creek.  The directors gave Mr. James a  sympathetic hearing and referred  the matter to their planning  .committee for prompt attention.  The second was in the form of a  report from Recreational Commission Chairman, Norm Watson  who urged in his presentation  that the Regional Board should  contribute to the operating costs  of the projected swimming pool  for Gibsons, despite the fact that .  Gibsons had chosen not to join  the joint recreational function.  Watson quoted figures which indicated that 60% of the use of the  Gibsons pool would be by non-  Gibsons residents. "It is our moral obligation to contribute."  said Watson. "We applaud the  efforts of the village of Gibsons  in bringing this pool project to a  head and feel we should contribute."  Watson said that the $300,000  in Neighbourhood Improvement  funds turned over by the Gibsons  Council made the total recreation  package possible. "In effect,  this means that this region is  getting a million and a third dollar  recreation package for only a  million dollars,",said Watson.  The Regional Board directors  listened to his comments with respect and basic agreement was  reached that the Board would su-  support vWatson's recommendation. It may prove necessary,  however, to support the Gibsons  pool as a separate function since  the village has not joined the  joint recreational function.  In regular board business,  correspondence received from  B.C. Hydro indicated that despite  protests formally made by the  Regional Board against continued  spraying of the power line with  herbicides, that spraying of the  power line in the Port Mellon  area would be undertaken in  the near future 'to catch up with  work scheduled for last year'.  The directors moved that the  letter be filed. The motion was  carried that the Coast Guard  should check for residual spraying in those creeks below the  sprayed area.  Ferries  ���*��� cont'd, from front page  held at which the proposed fall  schedule could be discussed.  Among the priorities listed by  Bouchard for the fall schedule  would be some kind of insurance  that the morning schedule would  not be changed to the detriment  of commuters; that it would take  proper cognizance of the situation  of Sechelt Motor Transport. It  is thought that the fall schedule  would be basically the present  schedule of the Queen of New  Westminster with extra sailings  from the Nanaimo run ships for  peak periods. The committee  members present expressed their  hope that there would not be any  changes in the schedule which  were not absolutely necessary.  The controversial situation on  the Nanaimo-based ships which  saw a change over from china-  ware to paper cups specially for  the Langdale run had been  cleared up by allowing the Nanaimo ships to offer their full gamut  of catering services .on this run  too. In addition, the newstand  which' had been ordered closed  on the Langdale run, was again  operating normally. Bouchard  reported that in the few days prior  to the meeting during which full  facilities had been available on  these ships the services had been  well utilized.  On a more general note,  Bouchard expressed himself as  well satisfied with the coverage  the local press had been giving  the meetings recently. "The  reports are often as informative  as the minutes of the meetings,  how," said Bouchard.  * cont'd, from front page  Provincial Government, and Ted  Hume gave an informative talk  on municipal government. Joan  Haggerty, a local writer, gave a  talk concerning regionalism in  literature.  As well as gathering an outstanding amount of material,  much of which was previously  unavailable to students, the class  also drew topographical maps,  and even made an eight minute  film titled "Pollution Control at  Port Mellon". Ms. MacKown  said she had been most pleased  with the work her students had  done, and that the materials  they had gathered would continue  to be of use to the school for  years to come.  Sechelt  Auxiliary  by J. Lear  Twenty-one members of the  Sechelt Auxiliary to St. Mary's  Hospital held their last meeting  of this season at St. Hilda's Hall  on June 9th with the president,  Billie Steele, in the chair.  It was with deep regret the  members accepted the resignation of Muriel Eggins as Volunteer Director. Her dedicated and  efficient performance in that  office is greatly appreciated by  all who serve in the work for the  hospital. Any suggestions for  her replacement will be accepted  by Chris Ward.  Sincere gratitude is extended  to all who assisted in making our  Spring Luncheon such a great  success.  Attention of all members is  drawn to the Appreciation Tea  for volunteers to be held on June  26 at 2:30 at the hospital.  Lea Redman requested that  anyone having odds and ends of  wool to please leave them at  Uncle Mick's Ladies Store in the  mall. They will be knitted into  lap covers for the patients in  the hospital.  We extend a happy holiday  season wish to all and look forward to our next meeting on  September. 9.

Pender  Taxes  ��� cont'd, from front page  Ratepayers Director Frank White  was predictably unhappy with the  new tax levels.  "My daughter lives in one of  the nicer parts of Vancouver,  out beside the University Endowment Lands, and the tax  level there is 52.02 mills, well  below what we're now paying -  and look what they get for it:  sewers, sidewalks, street maintenance, recreation, entertainment...It used to be people came  out here to put up with fewer  services and get away with less  taxes, but it seems now we've  got the worst of both worlds.  Something's gone wrong somewhere."  Asked what he thought had  gone wrong, and what the average ratepayer could do about  it, White said, "These agencies  that are shoving their budgets up  twenty and thirty percent have  got to be brought under control. They have lost all respect  for the taxpayer's dollar, and they  have to be made to feel our  anger at this. We have to insist  on tight budgeting, because this  is not an economically strong  area, and we have to insist all  major new programs be brought  to us for approval in referen-  dums. It used to be they called  referendums for everything, now  they avoid it wherever they can.  I hear they're going to try and  get this new hospital expansion  project past us without a referendum."  There was one ray of light in  the new tax notices for Area 'A*  residents. The handsome new  Pender Harbour Health Clinic,  built since the last tax notices,  was financed by a local specified  area tax and critics of the project  had claimed the resulting tax,  which applies only to Pender  Harbour and Egmont, would be  so high as to "drive out all but  the millionaires", while clinic  planners promised to bring it in  at under 2 mills. The final result:  1.0 mills.  j TED HUME!  j SERVICES  ���  ���  ���  ���  ���  ���  AUTHORIZED  ��sso  Home  j Equipments  !    Dealer   s  Inducing parts and labour.  *For most passenger cars.

Last week's Short History  of Soccer has inspired a series  of articles on various aspects of  the game. Topics to be covered in  the next weeks include: rules,  layout of the field, conditioning,  basic skills, and positional play.  Today, we will examine soccer  rues in simplified form.  1.The game consists of 11 players  on each team that play two  periods, of 45 minutes each.  Teams reverse ends at halftime.  2. A goal is scored when the ball  passes over the goal line between  the goal posts and under the  cross bar.  3. The ball may not be handled  by any player other than the goal  keeper who may handle it only  within the penalty area.  4. Free kicks are awarded for  handling, pushing, striking,  holding, kicking, tripping,  jumping   on   or   charging   with  Log houses incorporate  contemporary features  "What we are trying to do is  to incorporate traditional west  coast building ideas into contemporary structures." The  words are those of Earl Carter,  log house builder and student  of West Coast History. Carter  for many years now has built  traditional log structures for the  provincial museum at Heritage  Village in Burnaby, for example,  and other locations around the  province.  He and, his partner Cesar  Caflisch are putting the finishing  touches to a log-built beach  cabin for one of the branches of  . the Hopkins; family at - Hopkins  'Landing. CaflFsch is a Swiss-born,  architect who came to Canada to  design work at Expo ten years ago  and subsequently took up residence in Vancouver. Among his  projects since moving to the west  coast was the design ofthe Woodwards Extension on the U.B.C.  campus.  "I have been very impressed  by west coast traditional architecture," says Caflisch, "particularly the native log house. I got  tired of working in an office and  living in the city and find this  kind of work in which we try to  marry modern living with traditional west coast concepts vastly  more satisfying."

It's convenient!  ^nVAWiWyWMWW  Etremely low tides caused  some considerable difficulty  for one small boat in Gibsons  vicinity last Friday. The thirty-  two foot Chris Craft came in  around Salmon Rock and got too  close to a rock area. The boat ran  aground on the rock and the  choppy seas were pounding it  when it was pulled off by a  boat manned by John - Smith  of Smitty's Marina and Herb  Craig.  By the time they had the boat  pulled off the rock it was full to  the gunnels with water. By  this time the Coast Guard had  been alerted and were on their  way. Some boats giving fishing  reports in the harbour tried  to inform the rescuers that  the Coast Guard was coming but  the rescuers knew by experience ^ that the Coast Guard  concerned themselves only with"  the distressed vessels and  left the boat salvage to, others.  Any delay would have resulted in  the loss of the boat.  There was an anxious moment  during the rescue when one  of the fishing reports boats  cut across the bows of the rescue  tow causing it to slacken speed  and almost causing the towed  vessel to overturn with all three  men aboard. The tow got underway again in time to right the  towed vessel and the rescuers  managed to get it to the beach.  W.P. L. Loden (4-2), L.P. B.  Lineker (0-4), G. Ferris 6th.

Answer: Research indicates that  there is no significant difference  between the cavies producing  potential of honey, table sugar,  or molasses.  Question: Should wheat germ be  fed to babies?  Answer: Wheat germ can be  added in small amounts (about  1 teaspoon) to other cereals such  as oatmeal or cream of wheat,  K'm'i'K'l'  ^�� ... ...  ......*....���  during the latter part of the first  year. Wheat germ adds protein*,  iron, B vitamins, vitamin E and  fibre.  Question: What is the food vialue  of bean sprouts?  Answer: The mung bean is most  commonly used for sprouting, but  any bean can be used. Bean  sprouts have a higher content  of protein, iron and B vitamins  than do waxed beans and they  are also low in calories.  Perhaps one of the least happy traditions all over Canada associated with graduation  is the defacement of private property. This garage door offers mute testimony. One could  wish that this particular tradition could die out.  Fish Talk  by Gerry Ward  The Oscar, Peacock, or Velvet  Cichlid is probably one of the  friendliest of all the tropical fish.  I mean friendly to their owners,  and not to a great amount of our  common tropicals. It is also a  good fish to have if you own a  lot of aquariums as they will  eat any dead or live fish you  might wish to part with.  The original Oscar can be  found in eastern Venezuela,  Guianas, Amazon Basin to Paraguay. There are now several  types which are not found in  nature and work is being done to  develop more. The Oscars attain  a size of twelve inches or so and  are very greedy eaters, they will  soon get to know who is the person feeding them and will come to  the front of the aquarium seeking  food, and will eat out of your  hand.  If you wish to own an Oscar or  even a pair of Oscars it will be  necessary to own a minimum of  a 30 gallon aquarium and if you  have a pair, a 50 gallon aquarium  will be necessary, also a good  filtration unit will be needed as  it would not take these fish long  to foul a poorer quality filter  unit.  When small, other fish may be  kept with Oscars but never put  in smaller fish as they will soon  disappear, equal or larger fish  will probably get along quite  well with Oscars as long as they  are not extremely aggresive.  One point in favour with a good  pair of Oscars is that the owner  could stand to make as much as  $250.00 from the young fish of  the parent pair. The Oscar can  lay as many as a thousand eggs  at one spawning, the young hatch  in three or four days and if fed  properly will grow, quite rapidly  up to one inch when, if a saleable  market is found, they can be sold  for as high as 25$ each. Strangely  enough there seems to be some  market for these fish. If the  parents are not disturbed they  may spawn up to three times a  year thereby multiplying the  profits. If the original layout can  be arranged financially,  a pair  Come Cry with Me  REDS...  got  get  'em?  'em!  Dear Ann:  My wife has me baffled. She  goes to sleep so fast, we come  home from a movie or a party,  I let her out at the front door,  go back to the garage and park  the car, put out the cat.

Thwarted  Dear Thwarted:  At least it's not the old head  ache dodge. It does sound like  a dodge. One can hardly get  undressed in that amount of time,  turn on the radio, sing, yell fire!

As mentioned earlier they are  extremely greedy eaters and they  love their food in chunks. They  will eat live fish, snails, dog  food, raw beef heart, earthworms, etc.  If I ever get the chance to put  a proper sized tank for Oscars in  my home, I will soon have some  of these fish, as I have found .  them very intersting in the  past.

Coast News, July 5,1977.  Guess Where!  Lockstead reports  Recent legislation amending  the Islands Trust Act takes power  from the regional districts over  zoning, community planning,  approval of subdivision and development on the islands of the  Gulf and Strait of Georgia. The  new law gives these powers to  the Islands Trust. I spoke against  this legislation in the Legislature.  The regional districts involved  were, in my opinion, responding  to the needs of the people of the  islands and enacting bylaws and  community plans responsive to  these needs.  The Islands Trust is now  "under the thumb" of the Minister of Lands as three of the Trust  representatives are government  appointees. I believe the powers  of zoning and planning should  stay in the hands of locally-elected people. Regional boards are  directly accountable at elections  every two years and local issues  should be dealt with locally.  The people of the islands are,  as a result of this amendment,  in a position of having no regional  government. They are governed  differently from the rest of us  because they live on islands with  particular growth problems. I  say that the people of the islands  best understand their own needs  and will get more satisfying results from local rather than central government. Many people of  the islands have expressed this  opinion to me.  I see this legislation as further  eroding the powers of regional  districts and legislating from  Victoria. I strongly feel that we  need less central bureaucracy on  local issues, not more, and I  voted against the amendment to  the new law.  On seatbelt legislation, I would  like to say that I voted for the  bill because I feel, as my colleagues in the NDP Caucus feel,  statistics show that the bill will  save lives. Although I voted for  the bill, I voiced concern in the  House that the bill was not enforceable. I would have preferred  to see a province wide education  program directed towards pointing out to people the hazards  and deaths caused by not wearing  a seatbelt. The Social Credit  government was not receptive to  this idea. I voted for the bill,  poor as it is, which will undoubtedly save lives but is better  than no bill at all.

The case of the waterless school - a solution?  by Howard White  The views expressed in this  column are not necessarily those  of the Coast News.  Bill Scoular is mad. A lot of  people get mad when they read  the local newspapers and see  things they disagree with being  done, and the only difference it  makes is to their children who  get sent outside, or the family  dog who finds the newspaper  being put to use across his hinder parts.  But when Bill Scoular gets  mad he takes a lot of people  with him. Over the years he has  probably been the nearest thing  Pender Harbour could claim to a  public orator, and many of the  issues that have got him mad  have, coincidentally, wound up  as major issues in the community-  and having something done about  them. As one observer of his  present anger noted, "When  other people stand up to make a  point at a meeting they often as  not just tick you off, but when  Bill speaks it sounds like the  wrath of God has fallen upon  us, and there is respectful  silence."

G. W. Dixon  Works Superintendent  very considerable absurdity in  the schools boards reconstruction plans for the recently burned  Pender Harbour Secondary  School in Kleindale.  According to him the $1.5  million structure is being rebuilt  without the principal cause of its  destruction being remedied. And  that cause is its lack of an adequate water system, for day to  day use, for supplying a sprinkler system, or for supplying fire-  trucks in the case of a major  fire.  Bill Scoular's association with  the Pender Harbour Secondary  School goes back a long way. He  was on the citizen's committee  back in 1955-6 that directed the  school's first building and chose  the present Kleindale location.  "That wasn't even our first  choice," he says. "We looked  over this area for months and the  best site we came up with was  on Bill Malcolm's property out on  Francis Peninsula. It was far  better than the one we ended  up with. And do you know why.  we couldn't use it? Water. We  had to stick the school up in  Kleindale because there was a  creek there and they said they  needed a good water source to  put in a water system. Down at  Malcolm's all they would have  had was a well.  "That was twenty years ago.  There's been a public water  system on Francis Peninsula for  ten years now, but they still  haven't got around to putting the  one in at the high school. That  first school cost $640,000 and it  burnt down because they couldn't  get around to putting in their  water, now they're rebuilding it  at over twice the cost and they  still can't be bothered.  "That's how long this water  issue has been going on."  Besides his work on the original  site selection committee Bill also  sat for many years as Pender  Harbour's school board member  and up until he recently retired,  worked as maintenance man at  the same Kleindale school. One  of his continual headaches there  was - you guessed it - the water  system, or lack thereof.  "Here they've got a million-  dollar building full of twenty-  thousand-dollar-a-year teachers  and the best equipment money  can buy, and what have they got  supplying it with water? A piece  of plastic hose tied into the creek  with string, no dam, no storage  tank, no screen, no nothing."  "In the spring and the fall the  creek would flood and wash it  out, and in the winter the creek  would freeze and plug it with  ice. Sometimes it would come out  of the taps looking like chocolate  milk. And it's still that way today. If you don't believe me you  can go up and look at it. The  standby is a pump and well, just  like they said couldn't be used at  the Francis Peninsula site."  Although the gimcrack waterworks was a daily inconvenience  to Scoular as maintenance man,  his greatest concern was the lack  of fire protection it afforded.  "I don't know how many times  I tried to get them to put a reserve tank up on the high bank  across from the school. I got  tired of mentioning it. It was  always a good idea but always it  wasn't the time to do it. Meanwhile the school burned down."  Scoular said after the fire he  just assumed the board had seen  the point and would begin planning a water system as its first  move. He couldn't believe it  when he heard school board  officials saying the school would  be built first and water systems  looked into "later". That's when  Bill Scoular got mad.  In going public with his concern Scoular has taken aim on  two public misconceptions which  he feels prevent people from understanding the necessity of installing a water system for the  new school as it is being built.  One of these  misconceptions  ftnUngU  ��l_k_-i&   otl  I ��� ��� ����� U %W #54 Cowrie Street  ] OPEN Monday - Saturday Friday til 9 885-3818 Sechelt I  PLANTS,  BASKETS,  ANTIQUES  SOIL AND POTS  is the widespread feeling that  the school board had reached a  happy solution of the school's  fire prevention problem by incorporating into the plans a 60  thousand gallon reservoir under  the gymnasium floor which can  also be used - after some $280,000  worth of improvements - as a  swimming pool. The other misconception is that an adequate  school water system would be a  project of such major proportions  it would cost hundreds of thousands and could only rightly be  undertaken, as pool spokesman  Shirely Vader said at a recent  public meeting, by the Regional  District.  In describing the 60,000-gallon  pool as less than adequate for  fire protection Scoular is supported by local fire chief Barry  Wiibee, who says, "People  should understand that the pool  would supply water to our trucks  for approximately one hour.  When the school burned we were  pumping for approximately six  hours. What the pool would provide would be initial protection  only."  "And don't foreget the pool is  inside the school," Scoular says.  "It's inside the building that's  burning down. Things are caving  in, falling into it, plugging the  intake, and you can't get within  a hundred feet because of the  heat. How are they going to  deal with that?"  The other major problem with  the pool is in providing water to  a sprinkler system. The sprinkler  was not included in original  plans for the school but public  outcry has now caused local  school board representative Peter  Precesky to give the situation  another look. As one acquainted  with the situation, Scoular is convinced of the need for sprinklers.  "A lot of people say school  fires are all caused by arson, and  a sprinkler is no use against  arson, but I don't buy that. We  had fires in that school before  that which could have burned it  down and they weren't set by  arson. One time some kids left  an oily rag on the floor of the  shop and it got covered with wood  chips. It smouldered away all  weekend and when Ozzie Cargyle  opened up Monday morning the  whole shop was full of smoke.  By the time he got it out there  was a hole in the floor six feet  across.

Another thing nobody  has said much about is with this  new community school arrangement, there's going to be people  in that school all hours of the day,  it's going to be open to the public. This is going to increase  the fire risk."  A sprinkler requires a pressurized water supply which  would be difficult to set up in  connection with the pool. It  would require electric pumps with  some kind of automatic triggering  system and independent wiring ���  so that it would remain working  if the school electrical system  was damaged.  "There's no way of making  any pump 100% reliable," Scoular say��. "The automatic trigger might not go off, it might be  burned up. Maybe the whole  building will short out, and a  mainline breaker will blow a mile  down the road. It's too complicated."  AH of these problems could  be overcome, Scoular feels, by  a private water system flowing  from an earth reservoir up the  nearby creek through four or  six-inch rigid piping and delivering water with a high natural  pressure at the new building site.  ��� "What confuses a lot of people  is they think it would have to be  a big public system for the whole  Kleindale area. That's nothing  to do with it. Let the community  look after its own water when it  decides to and go up Anderson  Creek. The school just needs to  look after itself."  The system he visualizes would  be based in the smaller creek  now being used by the school.  This creek has great seasonal  fluctuation and it is also used by  spawning salmon much lower  down, but Scoular maintains a  reservoir could be created upstream and kept up year round  without problems. The school is  now permitted to withold up to  40% of the flow and this would  be adequate to fill the reservoir.  To prove his plan was within  feasible limits Scoular teamed  up with this interested reporter  last Sunday and organized a  visit to the creek site by two  members of the South Pender  Harbour Water Board, Bill  McNaughton and Eric Brooks,  and waterworks maintenance  supervisor Frank White. Armed  with an aneroid barometer to  read elevations, a steel tape measure for distances and a land map  they spent several hours exploring the creek for natural reservoirs and studying the feasibility  of dams and pipelines.  Their findings:  A suitable reservoir site exists  on the creek on crown" land at a  distance approximately 2,000 feet  upstream from the school. This  site could be damned with an  earthfill plug 50 feet wide and  10 feet deep incorporating a  metal and concrete spillway.  This reservoir is naturally 75 feet  long, an average 5 feet deep and  50 feet wide, but it could be  lengthened to 100 feet and  widened to a virtually unlimited  width with a bulldozer.  This site stands at an elevation  of 190 feet above the school,  which would enable water to be  delivered to the school at approximately 100 pounds pressure.  The pipeline route following  the creekbank would cross private  land requiring easements for  part of its length but would otherwise be in firm gravel bedding  requiring no blasting.  The capacity of this system,  after enlarging the reservoir,  would be up to half a million  gallons, or approximately ten  times that ofthe pool.  The approximate cost, to judge  by recent water board experience,  and including engineers' fees,  chlorinator, screens and job  cleanup, would be $27,484, or  one-tenth the construction cost  of the pool.  "Whatever we come up with  is only half of what the engineers  will come up with," Scoular  says, "But I think- it's safe to  say an adequate water system  could be put in for $50,000. That  is about what the department of  education has contributed to  this pool.  "I have to wonder if the department of education would have  put all that money into the pool  if they had been told the same  money, or less money, would  have got them a water system  that would give ten times the  fire protection and give the school  a proper water system on top of  it. The school board can't say  it didn't know because I've been  screaming this for years."  Although, actual school construction does not start for  another month Scoular feels plans  to include the pool in the building  have become too finalized to  think about going a different  route now. But he still thinks  the water system must be built  and can be built in time to supply  the school before it is opened.  "They should get moving right  now. They've got to get some  permits and an easement and that  will take some time but they've  got a year to do it in. That's  enough. But people are going to  have to demand-it. That school  must not open without a positive  water system and full fire protection. This is the time to do it.  They've been telling us next  year of just too bloody long.''  Scoular doesn't know exactly  where the money would come  from and doesn't feel it particularly matters as long as it comes.  Given the fact that the school's  insurance rates are sky-high and  substantial reductions would be  gained by establishing an approved water system, it is probable  the money would soon be recovered in any case. However  they manage it, school board  members are going to have to  deal with this issue soon. If  they don't there are going to be  a lot more mad people in Pender  Harbour than Bill Scoular.
