The Sunshine  Published at Gibsons, B.C.  25* per copy on newsstands  Serving the Sunshine Coast since 1945  Volume 30, Number 40  October 4,1977.  Regional Board hears conflict  This bee is making what must surely be one of its last pollen-runs of the season as it visits  a Sunshine Coast morning glory vine. ���__,����� ��� ^ ��1  Movie comes to Cribsons  Conflicting views were heard at the meeting of the Sunshine  Coast Regional Board held on Thursday,   September  29th,   of Sechelt at their next meeting,  concerning the use of motor boats on Ruby Lake.   The board   scheduled for October 5th.  received correspondence from several summer cabin owners  on the lake protesting strenuously the limitation of motor boat  engines to a size of ten horse power.  The contrasting opinion was presented in a petition to the  board by Mr. Colwell who is a permanent, year-round resident  of Ruby Lake and has been for some years.   Colwell has been  conducting personal checks on the quality of the Ruby Lake  water for several years and this year for the first time found a   request from  the  Gower  Point  noticeable bacteria count in the Ruby Lake waters.   This he. "  attributes to the large number of summer weekenders who  use the lake without benefit of sewage disposal facilities of  any kind and who come largely to water ski.   Engine sizes up  to one hundred and fifty horsepower are not now unusual,  the board was informed.  The regional board will keep the matter of Ruby Lake under  consideration.  men from the Egmont area.  Some question was raised about  the effects of the operation on  commercial fishing in the area.  The Crown Zellerbach corporation's next step will be to make  formal application to go ahead  with the operation. The provincial government will ask for the  regional board's opinion at that  time.  Meetings for Sechelt  and Roberts Creek  The Sechelt Vicinity Regional  Plan Committee wi|l be. holding  a public meeting on October 11,  1977, at 7:30 p.m. at the Senior  Citizens' Hall in Sechelt to discuss the third draft of the Sechelt  Vicinity Regional Plan.  The committee has made about  ten changes to the text' of the  plan and ,to modifications to the  plan map in response to the  7~ public" input received at the  previous meetings and by written  submission. The committee believes the third draft is a true  reflection of what the community  has indicated it desires for the  area.  The Roberts Creek Planning  Committee will hold a second  public meeting on Wednesday,  October 5, 1977 to discuss the  second draft of the Roberts  Creek Official Community Plan  now renamed Official Settlement  Plan. The committee has made  refinements  and   minor  modifi  cations to sections of the plan in  response to the comments of  the public meeting and additional  input from provincial agencies. |  Notable changes are the extension of the residential area and  more stringent regulations on  the use of land bordering Roberts  Creek. A copy of the plan map  is posted in the Regional District  office in Sechelt.  The fact that the Beachcombers  have just left town does not mean  that Gibsons' affair with the  world of entertainment is over.  Last week, Fred Simpson of  Universal Studios was in Gibsons  booking   accommodation   for   a  movie crew.  Simpson rented ten units at  the Cedars Inn, ten at: the Irwip  Motel, and twelve at the Sunny-:  crest Motel. The bookings were  for October 15th for a period of  four days.  Wet sort  Another important presentation made to the regional board at  the September 29th meeting was  from Crown Zellerbach. The  corporation is desirous of instituting an ultra-modern wet sort  operation on the north side of  Jervis Inlet, just inside the  regional district. The operation  as presented in slides at the  regional board meeting would involve cranes and sinkable floats  which could be sunk 'and then  refloated under the requisite  logs.  According to Crown Zellerbach the proposed wet sort  operation   would   employ   forty  Animals  and wells  In other regional board business discussed the board heard a  Road area that the regional  district should get involved in a  Joint Animal Control Function  with the villages of Gibsons and  Sechelt. Area 'E' representative  Ed Johnson agreed to look into  the matter.  A representation from Mrs.  M. E. Slinn of Soames Point  drew the regional board's attention to the fact that there were  in her area old and unused wells  which had not been properly  refilled. Area.'F" representative  Bernie Mulligan agreed to take  the matter up with the appropriate authorities.  Other  Elections  Weather  The rainfall for 1977 came  closer to last year's last month  when 11.0 mm of the wet stuff  came down. This compares to  the sixteen-year average of 79.0  mm for September. Rainfall  totals for this year are now only  100 mm behind last year's total.  The highest temperature for  the month was 20 degrees  centigrade with the lowest being  7   degrees    centigrade.  /- .'���      ���/'  Airport representations  ;���>'.��      .  .ft    ���       ,   if  4 :���/-> '  Spokesman for the Committee  against the Rape of the Environment, Jack Pope, informed the  Coast News last week that his  committee would be making representations to the Sechelt Village  council at the next meeting,  scheduled for Wednesday,  October 5th. "We have some  positive recommendations to  make," said Pope. "We hope to  be able to present a more positive  image of our committee.''  ^������*x; u  Pope said, however; that the.  committee was still very concerned with the Frank Leitner  situation, pointing out that  Leitner had in effect been negotiating the lease for the Aero  Club with himself, being both  the council's Airport Committee  chairman and a concerned member of the Aero Club. "In such  a circumstance," said Pope,  "conflict of interest is simply  inevitable."  It was from this window of the Prince home in Davis Bay that four people saw the mysterious unidentified flying object last week. The X in the picture marks the location of the  object. Whatever, it Was the object was seen from several locations and by a number of  people. . .      '  Several see mysterious  UFO over Trail Islands  An amendment to the Regional  District Procedure By-Law No. 1  will see regional board directors  elected in November to take  office in December this year.  Five of the present regional  board directors come up for  election this year: Director  Paterson of Area 'A'; Director  Pearson of Area 'C; Sechelt  representative Thompson; Director Johnson of Area 'E'; and  Gibsons representative Metzler.  Of the five only Director Paterson has clearly indicated that he  *^gi|Lj��- b^Jamning^again.^^pnly  Director Johnson seems fairly  sure that he will not run again.  The other three directors whose  seats come up for election have  not yet indicated their intentions.  Ambulances  In/other correspondence, the  regional board heard from Gordon Elliott, Property Consultant  for the Ministry of Health who  asked the board to consider  paying for the construction of a  double carport for use as an  ambulance storage area. The  Ministry of Health would repay  the loan of the necessary monies  as a rental.  :"'" It was suggested at the September 29th meeting, however,  that this was a matter which  might best be handled by the  Sechelt Village Council. Accordingly Sechelt representative  Thompson agreed to bring the  matter up with the village council  Two new matters brought  before the regional district on  September 29th concerned the  Cold Mountain Pottery and .the.  request by Dr. Perry that he not  be included within the boundaries  of the' Village of Gibsons. In  the case of the Cold Mountain  Pottery, situated at the top of  Henderson Road, it was learned  that the Department of Highways is again requesting a 100  foot road allowance through the  middle of the pottery site. A  similar request last year was  denied. The regional district  will again take the matter up on  . behalf, qfy the- pottery with . the  Department of Highways. '  In the case of Dr. Perry's  request, . the regional board  agreed to support him in the  matter. The property belonging  to Dr. Perry was incorporated  into the village of Gibsons at  the suggestion of the provincial  government and it is believed  that the Village of. Gibsons is  not particularly anxious to have  it so included. Dr. Perry was  ill and unable to attend the public  meeting at which the inclusion  was discussed.  At the conclusion of the regular  meeting the directors held an  informal and personal meeting  since it was felt that the pressure  of regional business sometimes  limited the discussion time available to the directors at their  scheduled meetings. Alderman  Lorraine Goddard was present,  on behalf of Alderman Metzler  who had to be absent.  Buckle up    |  According   to   the   province'^  doctors,    mandatory    seat    be��j  legislation is the most important  life-saving measure to be introduced   in   British   Columbia   in  many years. '.~#?  The British Columbia Medical  Association, which led the campaign to bring mandatory seat  belt usage to the province, en^~  courages everyone to wear seat  belts at all times.  Dr. Herb Parkin, chairman of  the   British   Columbia    Medicaf  Association's Emergency Medical  Services  Committee  said   many  lives  will   be  saved,   traffic   in,-'  juries   will   be   fewer   and   lesjs.  severe,  and   millions  of dollars/  will be saved in medical, hospital  and rehabilitative costs with ihe-  introduction  of  mandatory   seat  belt legislation. 77  "Some 500 acute-care hospital  beds in British Columbia ajh��  constantly filled by injured road  accident victims with major head}  cervical spine and chest injuries^  The paraplegic and disfigured  never fully recover from traffic  accidents," Parkin said. XX*.  He said nowhere in the road  safety research field is there ��a  current program or another der  vice which can possible reduce  life losses on British Columbia  highways by 25 percent each'  year, as will mandatory seat  belt usage. ���>*  "Many people think that they  should wear their belts only when:  driving on the highway, but many  ofthe deaths and injuries that we  see in hospital emergency departments are from accidents  which occur close to home,"  he said. ,-*i'.  In fact, studies have shown  that half of all traffic dea^s  occur within 25 miles of a victimjjs  home and at speeds of 40 mjih  or less. v?  Studies also show that wearing,  seat belts reduces the chance of  injury or death in traffic accidents  by -about brie half. Not just {for  drivers ��� but for passengers jin  both front and rear seats. :���������  On October 1, the use of seat  belts becomes mandatory in  British Columbia. Start buckling  up today.  Objection  Vice-Principal Jack Pope took  strong exception this week to a  report released by the Sechelt  RCMP last week concerning th'fe  alledged use of marijuana by  students at Chatelech High  School. According to Pope there,  has only been one isolated in|  cident involving students and  marijuana. , ������'  "We are very proud of our;  students at Chatelech," said  Pope, "and fee! that the releasee  by the RCMP can only foster "an  entirely erroneous impression."  ^^^^^ Ru the ^ihenne Atfornato ^^^^  By the Gjbsons Alternate  School.  QUESTION: Do you feel the  RCMP should use their  surveillance helicopters for  anything other than traffic  control?  BETTY MACEDO  "I feel it doesn't affect  me. Although it probably  Has a good effect in some  occasions, and I don't like  the paranoia sound that was  in the editorial. I think we  have much more surveillance  ,: than we're aware of anyway.  j" I know the RCMP have  patrol boats with very high-  range lenses that can see in  my living room almost as  if I were in the boat with  them. And that really  doesn 't bother me at al I."  MICHELLE KERR  7 "It's a matter of public  surveillance without a search  warrant which I don't  approve of. It infringes on  personal rights. If they have  the jurisdiction to do it In  terms    of    traffic  that  is  one   thing,  spread  it  to other  that's another."  control,  but   to  areas...  MARY-BELL BULMER  "I think it's very difficult to get an all-over sun  tan if I have to worry about  the helicopters up above me.  It is also an infringement  of privacy, besides that they  make a heck of a noise and  you can't talk when they're  going over, and I 've had  them going over quite frequently."  JOE KEEN  "If they search for anything they need a search  warrant, that would be a  neat way of getting around a  search warrant. If they want  something from somebody,  they should come to the front  door, open the gate, and  ask for it. Come in properly,  not sneak in the back door."  At least eleven people in three  different households saw what  could only be described as an  unidentified flying object above  Trail Islands on Friday, September 23rd between 6:30 and 7:15  p.m.  On Laurel Avenue at Davis  Bay, Mr. Prince had just finished  having dinner with his daughter  and son-in-law, Marian and  Kerry Simkins and a friend.  Marian and Kerry were in the  kitchen. They saw a strange  cloud hovering over the Trail  Islands and called the others over  to watch. For about 15 minutes  the four of them watched what  they described as a gray discshaped object above the islands.  "It would hover for a while,  then dip down below the trees as  if it was looking for a landing  spot," Mr. Prince said. "Sometimes it would turn on edge and  appear to be thin, then it would  turn again and become circular."  They watched it so intensely  their eyes smarted, it was an  overcast evening and it was their  feeling that as the object was  gray, it finally, blended into the  dusk.  In another sighting in Selma  Park, seven people witnessed  the same thing.  Al Midnight brought it to the  attention of his neighbour, and  the neighbour, Al, his mother,  father and children, watched a  similar object for at least 15  minutes.  Fortunately Al had a pair of  binoculars handy and was able to  see it fairly clearly. His description of its shape and movements coincided with what Mr.  Prince   and   family   had   seen.  With the aid of the binoculars  he was able to make out a gray  shape similar to an inverted  saucer, with a hump in the centre.  Around the edges it appeared to  be lighter, although he could see  no direct evidence of lighting.  Police in Sechelt are interested  in any other sightings there may  have been and would appreciate  any further information.  In memoriam -  Roland Kerbis  Roland Kerbis, onetime  fellow citizen, is gone from us.  Brooding, I ask myself,  what has Roland taken from  us with his going?  And I am forced to answer:  Just those same things that  he has left behind with us.  He leaves those who knew  him a natural, honest curiosity  about the world and its  peoples.  He leaves us more acutely  aware of the meanings of  such words as generosity,  selflessness, and integrity.  The depth of. his friend-  ship leaves us with a greater  by L. R. Peterson  understanding of that commonly used word.  He leaves us with a realization of the intensity with  which he lived, without at  the same time any attempts to  surpass his fellow human  beings..  Those who were close to  him know that he leaves behind a compassion that extended malice toward none  and good will toward all.  And, finally, he leaves with  us a sense of capabilities unrealized; of hopes deferred;  of destiny unfulfilled.  Vale, Roland.  Do you remember Ralph the deer who lived for a while with the Danroths on King Road? 7  We ran a little story on Ralphy sometime ago. Ralph went off to a game farm and from'7  there went on to a career in show business.

Some said that it  was nothing more than outright government inerference with our personal  liberty. Others argued that seatbelts  themselves caused injury, and these  people would cite cases of car accidents  they knew in which a person's life was  saved by not wearing a seatbelt.  Nevertheless,   the   evidence   is   con  clusive. In all the places where the  wearing of seatbelts has been made  compulsory, traffic fatalities have been  dramatically lowered. So now British  Columbia has a law which is designed to  save us from ourselves, and that most  prevalent killer in our society ��� the  automobile. Sometimes the government  must pass laws that will curb the more  self-destructive sides of our "nature,  and save us from our own folly. This is  one of those times. Buckle up and live  a little.  That bomb  The U.S. Congress has now told Jimmy  Carter that he can go out and buy the  Neutron Bomb. It has twice the deadly  radiation of the present bombs but only  one tenth the explosive power, which  means that people get killed but the real  estate values don't go down. This is good  news for those of us who are into real  estate and don't want a messy wad of  humanity wandering around cluttering up  the place. It's bad news for the rest of  us ��� the majority of the world's peoples  who would just as soon stay alive on this  planet, and even save enough of it to  turn over to our children some day.  Since the beginning of this century  our society has been training scientists  and electing politicians whose main  talents seem to lie in the production and  dispersal of unimaginably destructive  weapons. The Neutron Bomb is the  latest of these. With its new and improved formula, it's stronger than dirt,  gets things whiter than white, and will  undoubtedly prove to be the final washday miracle that some of us have been  waiting for.  Isn't it time to stop this nonsense?  Shouldn't we be training our scientists to  foster life instead of encouraging them  to discover ways of obliterating it?  Shouldn't we be electing politicians who  want to feed the world instead of lowering  the population, and thereby ridding  themselves of the need for all those  complicated social services?  Now we have the Neutron Bomb.  The landlords of the world shake hands.  The tenants suffer and die.  Some small improvements  A contemplation of the newspaper  headlines or the television news oftentimes leads one to the conviction that  things are getting rapidly worse and have  been for a long time and will continue  to do so in the foreseeable future. It is  with relief, surely, that we occasionally  come across some evidence that the  downward spiral of human affairs may  not be irretrievably set.  Lately to inform our hopes of a better  world there have been some small indications of progress. On the international  scene there has come an apparent break  through in the SALT talks through which  the United States and the Soviet Union  seek with mammoth caution to limit the  nuclear arms race. Such progress,  however infinitesimal must be welcomed  by all who think. On the continental  front we are informed that virtually for  the first time since the Second World  War the incidence of murder and violent  crime in the United States has declined.  And finally more locally, one hears that  the criminal element may be becoming  less prevalent on the Lower Mainland.  Small    indications    of    improvement  perhaps, but nonetheless very welcome.  from the files of Coast News  mberWhen.  5YEARSAGO  Sechelt Band gathered expectantly at  a special constructed ramp close to the  old wharf for the first glance at a barge  load of five bungalows, the first of 48  units including 11 duplexes, war surplus  houses from the RCAF base at Ladner.  Clarence and Gilbert Joe and Henry  Paul heading up the administrative  staff of Sunshine Coast Indians, were  on hand as crews from the Vancouver  based Apex house-movers waited to take  each unit to the cement footings in the  Band's newly developed subdivision off  Porpoise Bay Road.  10 YEARS AGO  This week's display of fruits and  vegetables shows a 17 ounce apple and  a one and a half pound pear, a one hundred pound squash and a fifteen and a  half pound cabbage.  A school of blackfish cavorted between  Keats and the Sunshine Coast area  Friday afternoon. One of them came  quite close to the beacon outside Gibsons  harbour and really behaved like a porpoise leaping high and out of the water.  They appeared to be loath to leave,  keeping the water in the vicinity of the  gap as their playground for more than  an hour.  15 YEARS AGO  At the Twilight:    The Three Stooges  meet Hercules.

L.R.Peterson  Musings  John Burnside  My friend Faustmann left a  note on my typewriter this week  suggesting that I write a column  about the Muhammid Ali-Earnie  Shaver heavyweight bout. "Put  Burnside back where he belongs," said the note, "on the  sports pages."  It has indeed been a longstanding puzzlement to my  erudite and bookish friend that he  has a friend, whose mind he  occasionally respects, who avidly  reads the sports pages and,has  an encyclopaedic knowledge of  gladiatorial derring-do ranging  over at least the last couple of  decades. We've had many a  heated exchange over it in the  past ten years. . Much Faust-  mannesque scorn has been  heaped on my largely unheeding  head because of my unashamed  predilection for the deeds of  professional athletes..  And not from Faustmann alone  has the abuse come. A succession of friends, concerned about  my mental well-being, have  urged that I give up this unseemly  interest. They've told me about  the crassness of commercial  sport, about the violence of professional sport; they've told me  how our obsession with professional gladiators mirrors the  obsession of Rome in its decline.  I nod my head in complete  agreement and then usually open  my morning Province to see how  the injury to the ankle of the B.C.  Lions defensive cornerback is-  coming along or how the Vancouver Canucks training camp is  progressing.  Now Muhammed Ali is a sports  figure of such dimension, of such  intrinsic and compelling human  drama that even the skeptical  Mr. Faustmann was moved to  suggest last Thursday evening  that we had to watch the fight.  During the course of that fight  some of my recollected and  murmured trivia about Ali's  career were gratefully received  notwithstanding the fact that  their source had been the much-  scorned sports pages, hence the  suggestion on my typewriter.  What is there to say about  the heavyweight boxing champion of the world that has not  been said before through the  medium of a million typewriters  and a hundred languages in every  corner of the world? The only  comparable sports figure probably in the history of the species  is the soccer star Pele. Both  men have dominated their respective sports - the most international of the major sports - in  a fashion which has never been  equalled. The difference surely  is that Pele has antagonized  none. A soft-spoken and a  charming genius who in a quiet  and likable fashion amasses his  fortune and the affection of all  who come into contact with him.  Ali on the other hand has broken  all the rules that govern sports  idols.  From his beginnings as the  brash and boastful young Cassius  Clay out of Louisville, Kentucky,  spouting his bad verse and predicting the round his . fights  would end in people have been  waiting for him to get his comeuppance. Even a veteran and  cynical observer of the sports  scene such as Jim Taylor in the  Vancouver Sun acknowledge that  he had been waiting for years for  that flapping mouth to be ignomi-  niously stilled but that in rounds  thirteen and fourteen of the  Shavers match when it seemed  Vs^Jhat it might-well happen; he  Suddenly found himself rooting  for Ali to hang on.  When he won the title against  that hulk of menacing malevolence that was Sonny Liston it  seemed that he must be the  popular figure. Clean-living  young Olympic champion meets  menacing hood. But no, Ali's  most public announcement that  he was done with white men's  religion and would take his  present name disturbed the  boxing public who wanted a good  little black boy to admire.  ; But Ali rode out the storm  that rose after his conversion  to the Moslem religion. The  man's enormous skills and equally enormous charisma overcame  the fears and the resentment  that his outspokenness had  caused. Then came the Vietnam war. Ali wouldn't go. "I  got no quarrel with them Congs,"  he said. At a time when the  American public was being  scolded into loyalty because of  that monstrous and drawn-out  misadventure by everyone from  the President down to the lowest  journalistic flunky, Ali wouldn't  go. Why should I go half-way  , across the world to kill yellow  men for freedom when I don't  have any at home, he asked.  They told him how easy it  would be. He would be in no  danger of being shot they told  him. They told him about Sergeant Joe Louis and how he  spent the Second World War  fighting exhibition matches.  But this was no Elvis Pressley  anxious at heart to be a good  American boy. This, however  unlikely it seemed, was a man  of principle.  At the height of his  athletic  powers they took away the title  they couldn't divest him of any  other way and kept him four years  in limbo. It didn't matter. No  heavyweight in the would could  consider himself champion while  Muhammed Ali lived and they  had to give him back his licence  to fight. He fought off the years  of ring rust, lost a heartbreaker  for the championship to Joe  Frazier who had to go to hospital  for a month's rest and never was  the same fighter ja^in.;/. Lost  another to Ken Norton after  fighting several rounds with a  broken jaw and then in Africa  before a screaming throng of  adoring Africans lay on the ropes  and defied the murderous Foreman to him him for five rounds  and suddenly he was back,  champion ofthe world again.  It's been years now that I've  had to simply agree with Ali.  He is the greatest heavyweight  in the history of boxing. He's a  big heavyweight and yet at his  peak he moved like a lightweight - a good one. Watch him  work and stage one of his patented flurries and if there have  been faster hands in boxing  they have been few and on  smaller men.  But Ali likes to eat and training  bores him now. He balloons up  to close to two hundred and  fifty pounds between fights.  Against Shaver Ali looked an  old fighter. The once taut body  sags, the legs grow weary and  only his immense ring cunning  kept Shavers from knocking his  head off.  One hopes that he will not  fight again. This man, infuriating  and absurd as he so often appears  deserves to go out a winner. He  has, of course, proved us all  wrong before. He is at his best  against the best. He has had  three fights with Ken Norton,  all narrow decisions, one for  Norton and two for Ali. Perhaps  he can beat him again. Win,  lose, draw, or quit, however,  there can be no doubt about it.  Among the heavyweight boxers  in the history of the sport, Muhammed Ali is quite simply the  greatest.

ROBERT HERRICK 1591 - 1674  Slings & Arrows  George Matthews  One of the duties and responsibilities of a school teacher is to  attend conferences from time to  time. I've been doing it for  eight years and quite frankly the  only thing I've ever learned is  that every school teacher in the  province has the same gripes and  bitches as I do. That in itself is  satisfying. It's nice to know  , you're not alone.  Last week all the high school  teachers in the district travelled  out to the Fraser Valley to a conference sponsored by Our provincial government. At this point  it only seems reasonable that I  should try to justify why our kids  were at home last Friday instead  of being at school where your tax  money says they are supposed to  be. First of all let me tell you  that your tax money pays for  almost two hundred days of  school per year, which is a few  more than it used to. The Ministry of Education (read "Ministry" when the Socreds are in  power and "Department" when  it's the N.D.P. - Socreds are  more pretentious.) allocates one  hundred ninety seven days when  teachers have to report for duty  and one hundred ninety one days  when students are obliged to  show up. What all that means,  and what it has always meant,  is that teachers have to be at  school six more days than the  kids. Fair enough, but what do  teachers do on those extra six  days? Traditionally, they have  marked books and exams and  generally attempted to regain  some semblance of sanity before  the renewed onslaught of the  barbarian hordes. In recent  years however, teachers have  shown a strong inclination to  learn a little more about how to  teach kids better and as a result  we have what are called "In-  Service" or "Professional-development" days.  The part of the conference I  attended concerned counsellors.  During the morning we had some  fellows describing a big new computer in Vancouver which could  help students decide what kind  of jobs they could do when they  finished school. This machine,  which could be contacted through  a terminal hooked up by telephone wires from any school  that could afford it, worked on a  question and answer system. The  student sits down in front of a  keyboard and a T.V. display  unit and the computer starts  asking questions. The questions  start with, "What is your name?"  and go on from there to ask  questions about the student's  temperament, personal aptitudes, job preferences and so  on. After an hour or so with the  machine, the student receives a  long detailed printout of the  mechanical conversation with  two or three suggested occupations at the bottom. One of the  fellows at the conference had a  typical printout along with him  and it must have been a good  twelve feet long and closely  typed. The only thing this  elaborate device will not tell the  poor kid is whether or not there  will be a job waiting after he  decides what he wants to do.  It was an interesting device  even though the student would  probably end up with a different  answer every time he or she used  the machine. At the very least  the exercise would probably  alleviate some of the anxiety  which students have to deal with  when they finally realize that they  are going to have to get put and,,  work for a living some, day, and,,  'that in itself is probably the most  important function' of job counselling.  One of the other participants  at the conference was Mrs. Kory  Regan, the new counsellor at  Elphinstone Secondary School.  Mrs. Regan has been involved  with job counselling and work  experience at the provincial  level and knows so much about  the subject that she's probably  forgotten more about the subject  than the computer ever knew.  When it comes to learning more  about the subject I'll consult  her before I touch the machine.  The afternoon part of the conference was a large group discussion which dealt with what  kind of qualifications counsellors  should have before they're allowed to do the job. The main  part of the conversation seemed  to centre around the idea that  counsellors ought to spend more  time around the university taking  various kinds of courses on how  to be a better counsellor. There  was even some hint that nobody  should be given the responsibility  of counselling students until  he had at least a Masters degree.  I must admit that I was impressed with these counsellors  dedication to raising the level  of qualifications of their colleagues but I couldn't help but remember the high school counsellor that had the greatest influence  on me when I was a kid. This  man was a burned out P.E.  teacher who couldn't see his toes  anymore let along touch them and  somehow, mainly because he  really liked kids, had talked himself into the counsellor's job.  This was back in the days when  teachers were poor and this guy  was pretty shabby and threadbare. He worked summers  wherever he could get a, job,  sometimes he drove cab, sometimes worked on the docks and  I would guess that over the years  he had done just about every  kind of work that ordinary folks  get up to. He had about seven  or eight children of his own and  he seemed to have an instinct  about whether or not a kid was  being straight with him. He  didn't make too many moral  judgements and he left the impression that he had either personally witnessed or had at least  heard about every possible kind  of human condition imaginable.  He also had a fondness for  whiskey which was readily dis-  ernable in the close confines  of his office. All in all, he was  a pretty accurate reflection of  Continued on Page 3 3EF\T   BELT   UAOJ/  ....t>EPvv.rrEuV   OURBETST  UlOE   eJER.'/  LETTERS to the EDITOR  Delighted  Editor:  During the past week my  daughter Brenda and I 'Visited  the Egmont School.

I thought about this old counsellor of mine while the new age  counsellors debated how many  years of university a counsellor  really needs to be successful.  It occurred to me that one of  the most important things people  learn about at universities is  universities -and if all of the  students in a school : were going  to end up attending university  then that is what the counsellor  should'learn about'. The fact of  the matter is however that maybe  5% of students in our school  district go to university and that  most end'up getting regular jobs.  In any4 case the kinds of qualifications this group of counsellors  seemed to be suggesting would  leave iny old high school counsellor back in the gym doing  pushups and that would be a  terrible 'waste.'

After I had completed my first  year of Art School in 1959. 1 was  .'obliged to seek some manner of  Jsummer work.    1 had no great  Jdesire to return to the logging-  Jcamps after five year's absence  'and they were poised to go on  [strike anyhow. Instead, 1 decided  ;to have another crack at the pulp-  jmills.   I went down to the Rayo-  jnier agency, gave them a song-  >and-dance about being a needy  ;student and won myself a hiring-  <slip to Port  Alice,  on  northern  ���Vancouver Island.  '.    I flew into the place optimistically on a high, clear blue day  An early June.  It lay upinlet from  :the old whaling-station  at Coal  ; Harbour  and   looked   a   decent-  ; enough    layout   from    the    air.  ;There were the usual fumes and  befoulments leaking from skinny  chimneys but that's what pulp-  mills are about.   I'd growji up in  just such a milltown and there  was an odd sense of homecoming.  By that evening, I was ensconced  comfortably in the local boarding-  house,  committed   to  a   payroll  again.  Pulpmill towns are not exactly  famous for sobriety and I had  heard that Port Alice was no  exception. Ordinarily, this knowledge would not have bothered  me in the slighterst but now I was  an art-student with little time to  ; make a stake. I resolved bravely  to attend to my sketching, keep  a low-profile as far as drinking  went and save my money. I  managed to stick to this noble  ', pledge for about two weeks.  I had officially hired-out as a  spare blowpitman without the  foggiest idea of what this job  involved. The previous mills I'd  worked at didn't possess such  things. But the agent had  assured me I'd be working mostly  with the outside yard-crew any-  how.     This proved to be true  ��� enough for the first while. I'd  worked on the bullgang at other  plants and the job suited me fine.  ; It mostly involved manual-labour  ; in the fresh-air and longshoring  ; pulp-bales anytime a ship came  ; in. An Indian crew flew in from  ; Alert  Bay  whenever  the   ships  ��� arrived.   They did nothing else  ��� but load pulp and could stow a  Pages  from a Li fe-Log  Peter Trower  hold faster than any other gang  I'd seen on the coast. They  whirled those heavy bales around  as though they were featherlight  and were always finished far  ahead ofthe rest of us.  For the first couple of weeks,  I kept my nose clean and to the  grindstone. Then two events  occurred that would rock the  boat of my good intentions in  no uncertain terms. Several old  drinking-cronies of mine arrived  from the sister mill at Woodfibre  where I had worked three years  before and which was temporarily  shut down. Also, I was suddenly  informed that a blowpitman had  quit and I was to take his place.  I had heard some unpleasant  rumours about the job by this  time and tried vainly to remain  on the yard-crew. It was to no  avail. And the blowpits proved to  be about as unpleasant as they  were cracked up to be. They  were huge wooden boxes set  under the digesters, eight in  all, into which cooked pulp  spewed   at   thirty-minute   inter  nals. The blowpitman's onerous  labour consisted of working his  way along a sopping tunnel and  spraying each pit with a high-  pressure hose until the pulp was  driven out through a trapdoor.  If you went like hell, you could  sometimes reach the last pit before the first digester blew again  but generally, I was always a  couple behind. It was a nightmarish sort of business but since  I was only there for the summer,  I decided to try and tough it  out. Of course the presence of  old pals plus the unpatatable  job, blew my non-drinking vows  all to glory.  I reverted to type and jumped  feet-first into the social-life of  Port Alice, such as it was. It  wasn't much but it kept my mind  off the unbearable blowpits.  Since I was no longer on my  best behaviour, I engaged in a  lot of garrulous conversation with  my boarding-house mates, many  BLOWPIT BLUES  of whom, ordered hard liquor by  the case and kept private bars  in their closets. A couple of  them were on the lam from Vancouver over a robbery they made  no bones about having committed. They'd gotten off on a technicality after hiding the loot.  They were waiting until things  cooled off before attempting to  return and pick it up. Theirs was  not the strangest story by any  means. There was a Dane called  Jensen who one night in his  cups, told me an incredible yarn  about having killed two men in  Denmark over a woman and  being hounded from country to  country by Interpol. He swore  they were still on his trail and  quit very abruptly, a few days  later.  For the next while, I vaccillated  between off-hours carousing and  gritting my teeth in the blowpits.  My requests for a transfer were  ignored and finally I'd had all  I could take. I missed a couple  of shifts on purpose and got myself fired. So much for Port  Alice.

The film is largely the work  of one man, Sylvester Stallone,  a rarely employed actor who  wrote the script of this rare  boxing film and insisted that he  be allowed to star in it, choreographed the fight sequences and  made it all work.  Dumb but basically decent,  the Rocky of the film, played  by Stallone, is a heavyweight who  basically can't hurt anyone unless  he is provoked. The acting is  generally fine and Stallone and  Burgess Meredith are superb.

So it is, every now and then,  that our lives get swept into some  turgid backwater of inactivity,  and we lie there, bobbing up and  down watching the days go by  and thinking that there just isn't  much for it. The tide of accomplishment- has gone out and as  the last sounds of the water  rushing down the drain beat  their chorus on the sides of our  dented consciousness, there is  one consoling thought. At least  by doing nothing we've set the  stage for something to come  along and fill it.  This was a week of being between things, and as a result I  haven't read any books. There'll  be no review today, folks. You'll  have to make do with television  or that keep-fit programme  you've been meaning to attend.  I'm sorry, but there's nothing  for it.. You can't review books  you haven't read, although it  should be pointed out that many  of my more spurious colleagues  do seem to make a living doing  just that, and reaping their back  cover rewards from a hoodwinked  reading public. But let's not  dally in this underbrush of  tangled prosody,< this verbose  jungle of slippery syntax here in  the suburbs of our souls. Let us  go forth into the light, and consider, briefly, the general state  of reading in our complex contemporary society.  Surprisingly, things aren't  that bad. Two recent articles in  the paper seem to hint, that in  spite of television, the movies,  the influx of pornography and the  re-emergence of the hot-rod as  a major cultural event, people  are actually reading more than  they ever did before. Particularly  in British Columbia. Out here on  the west coast; where, for the  last century the rest of Canada  has been dumping its misfits  and dreamers, it turns out that  we spend more time readihg?tfftlh  anyone; else. ���' Toronto may" tout  itself as 'the cultural vortex^  Ottawa may think it knows what  it's doing, and Montreal may  justifiably feel that it has its  fingers around the scrawny throat  of confederation, but out here in  Lotus Land it's obvious we've  cornered the market on people  who like to read. Good for us.  The other article that interested  me was also about reading, and  it was the reaction of some professor to the above good news.  His attitude can be summarized  rather quickly. He was saying,  "Sure, there are more people  reading here. But let's look at  the quality of the stuff they're  thumbing through." His was that  same old attitude that our. more  unenlightened teachers have  been pushing at us for years,  the idea that some books are  good, others are trash, and that  we're wasting our time unless  we're reading literature with a  capital 'L'.  What garbage. It's exactly  this sort of thinking that turns  people off reading for most of  their lives. Somewhere along  the line some supercilious twit  has told them that books are  only for the .'aesthetically pure  of heart, and if they aren't reading "good",, they shouldn't be  reading at all. This is all part of  that general state of affairs  about anything to do with art,  a subject that suffers from more  than its share of snobbishness,  and it's too bad that people  like this particular professor  are still managing to find an  audience,:/  For it matters only that we  read. Itdoesn't matter what we  read, or/how fast we read, or  whether,' the book is a deluxe  edition with the Morocco leather  binding and the two hundred  full-colour original  illustrations,  'il  LUCKY  * 7 *  or whether it's simply the twenty-  five cent second hand paperback picked up at a garage sale.  Books are books. They are easily  distinguishable from that latest  social panacea, the television,  by the process they involve us  in. Television hands life to us in  a series of predigested images.  Watch someone watching TV.  The mouth drops open, the eyes  glaze, and within fifteen minutes  the viewer, has been rendered  into a waxy lump - the perfect  receptacle for anything that gets  thrown his way, from snow tires  to underarm deodorant. Nothing  is required of the viewer save  that he keep his eyes and ears  open.  Consider, then, the process  that reading involves us in. Unlike television, a book requires  us to do something. First, it  has to be held. The pages have  to be turned, and already there  is an involvement with the  medium that is at once personal,  and determined. And reading  requires, as television does not,  that we actively participate  in the creative process. .We must  use our imaginations when we  read. We have to think when  we read. If the words are describing the beautiful heroine  trapped on some polar ice flow,  or if they conjure up a tale of  the henpecked husband, sitting  across the breakfast table from  his wife and reading 'Lives of  the Famous Poisoners', at least  we're left to ourselves. Every  last wart and neatly capped tooth  are not presented for our delectation. We get to imagine what  is there, and what is not. How  pleasing it is not to be bludgeoned by our entertainment.  How satisfying to be a co-creator  rather than an insenate wad of  unblinking consumerism.  There must be hope for us  yet if books are coming back.  Things can't be all that bad if  people are home reading instead  of going out to buy c vinyl knick-  nacks for their recreational  vehicles, or spending their time  wondering about Farrah Fawcett-  Major's dental bill. There is  still a light at the end of the  proverbial tunnel if people continue to read. A populace that  reads is a populace that thinks,  and when people think, it becomes increasingly harder to  fool them.  Congratulations are in order  here. People are picking up  books again. Keep turning those  pages and we may yet be free.  Next week I may even read one  myself.

This is the third part of a three  part series.  The first rod fisherman in the  Gulf, commercially, was Tom  Rogers. Mooring his boat to the  spar buoy out from Hornby wharf,  he started casting with straight  herring for bait, much to the  amusement of fishermen onlookers. This was in 1928 or  1929. His immediate success  convinced the sceptics.  So began what is currently  known as mooching by sport  fishermen. By 1930 a man was  not considered a real commercial  rowboater unless he owned a  rod outfit.  This consisted of a bamboo  rod (two bits at the scow) a walnut  reel ($4 and up), a large mouth  dipnet and a well made herring  rake. These rods came from  China - tropical bamboo was  useless.  Herring rakes, shaped from  straight edge grain fir, had teeth  from a strand of stiff wire cable  cut in pin lengths and inserted  one third to one half an inch  apart on the rake's leading edge.  Later, "Staybrite" leader wire  was used. Rakes ranged in length  from 10 to 14 feet.  In shallow water, Tribune Bay  at Hornby for instance, two ounce  leads were used, whereas in  deeper rod fishing places, four  ounces proved more effective.  The hooks, of a size but lighter  and with a somewhat longer  shank than an Atlantic salmon  "low water" hook, were baited  in two ways.  The first, used to good effect  when the herring were not closely  schooled, was to insert the point  of the hook up through the lips  at a slight angle, give it a partial  twist then imbed it in the body  through or immediately back of  the gill covers. This gave the  bait a measured, side to side  motion and resulted in the occasional spring being taken while  working on the coho.  The second method was to  enter the point through the  mouth, back through most of the  body cavity then bring the point -  point only, not the barb - through  The instant he sighted any,  provided he was an expert at  raking overside, his rake would  be lifted from the forked stick  in which it was cocked up over the  bow, swung out and down,  reversed and brought up hand  over hand, its teeth up. He  would then shake the impaled  herring into the boat forward of  where he sat.  Time and again, the slashing  rake as it scattered the herring,  attracted a salmon which hooked  itself before he had time to  drop the rake back into place.  4-S��fc      REAL ESTATE  *  INSURANCE  FLORON  AGENCIES LTD  Box 238  1589 Marine Drive  Gibsons,  9S  ron mcsavaney  AGENT  885-3339  OFFICE: 886-2248  JOHN BLACK  886-7316  The moment of truth for the hand-troller: the small boat, the choppy sea, and the bent line  indicating that a large salmon has been hooked.

This method caused the herring  to spin as if stunned or crippled  as herring appear to be when  tightly schooled and charged into  by feeding coho.  A variation of these two  methods was to start with the  first, thread the herring up the  shank of the hook and enter the  point a second time at the dorsal.  At times the first worked best;  at other times the second. But  experience proved that they  should not be switched haphazardly for best results. Coho, when  not avidly feeding, can be "set  in their ways."  With the advent of commercial  rod fishing, the rowboat man was  able to take coho down to 12 or  even 13 fathoms consistently.  No longer need he row continuously. Instead, he need only  hold his position against tide  and/or wind and sea. %  With the butt of his rod tucked  under one thigh, he kept one  eye on his rod tip, the other on  the watch for herring.  This overside raking was a  skill not all rod fishermen acquired. Instead, they secured  their rod, knelt or stood in the  bow and raked from that position.  However, what they did acquire  were revealing glimpses of coho  behaviour which few fishermen,  commerical or otherwise, have  had.  They would see a column of  jack herring, a yard or so wide  and several times that in length,  swimming leisurely under or  alongside his boat, with coho,  equally unhurried, riding herd  on them, spaced at regular intervals, five or six on either flank.  ���-' As they watched, they would  see a single herring break from  the herd, a coho swing toward  it, take it and with a heave of  its gill coverings, expel it, sending it spinning end for end.  Thus was demonstrated the  coho salmon's exasperating  'trait of "skinning tails."  Herring are wary and difficult  to rake.

You finger your line, feel the  slightest of taps, reel in and  find the after end of your hard  won herring skinned as smoothly  as a banana is peeled. No teeth  marks as when a trout or grilse  worry it.  Yet another coho quirk: Six  or eight of you are fishing together, your boats scarcely oar  length apart, all of you merely  holding against the tide.  One man feels action, then a  second, then others. Lines are  stripped in' all from the same  depth. Every bait herring has  its head crushed. At other times,  a tiny nip is taken from behind  the herring's dorsal fins, yet the  herring is not mauled or marred.  Rod gear in the thirties was  much inferior to the monofilament available today. Main  line and leaders were of "Japanese gut" - strands of raw silk  which soon became limp and  soggy. Some men replaced their  leaders every 10 fish and retied  their hooks every third one.  In commercial rod fishing the  boats were often bunched, at  times only a length or two apart.  As soon as the best depth was  found, reels were locked.  Depth was of the utmost importance; cohos in late season  change depth less readily than  earlier and for a man to be off  the depth by as little as a couple  of feet meant fewer solidly  hooked fish. And. with boats so  close to one another, to let a fish  run means fouled lines - and on  occasion foul language!  The instant the rod man felt  the weight of the fish, he rapidly  stripped in line so that it struggled head up at the surface only  to be skittered into his waiting  dipnet before it had really begun  to fight. With the heavier late  season fish this speedy boating  was not always possible. However, it was always attempted.  The fish often actively fed no  more than once or twice on a tide.  For perhaps 20 minutes every  boat was taking fish, then as  abruptly as it began the flurry  was over.  It was during these slack  periods that the skillful rod fisherman stood out. Taking coho  while they were really hitting  was easy enough. Taking them  while they were not was a skill  which came only with experience.  A man might finger his line  in inch by inch and thus trick  the salmon into seizing his bait  right at the surface. At other  times he would let it sink quickly  and hook one as it followed the  bait down. A skinned tail told  him that salmon were still there.  A net of tiny bubbles signalled  the presence of a herring school  and when pea size salmon bubbles wavered to the surface he  often held position for hours in  expectation of another feeding  flurry.   On shallow grounds the  salmon behaviour varied, but  there also knowledge and experience helped.  The same could be said for-  "herrring line" fishing. For  this, gear was of the simplest:  a four ounce sliding lead, several  fathoms of 30 test cuddyhunk,  one swivel, one Harrison light  seven hook.  The raked herring had to be  large enough to spin the hook  and was trailed three fathoms  astern, seldom more. With the  lead slid up, the tail of the bait  could be made to ripple the surface; slid lower a depth of several  feet could be obtained.  Here also the bait was worked,  with eye and hand alert for salmon making passes at it. Some  men taped thumb and forefinger  to prevent line burns, for if the  fighting salmon was allowed to  get its head, something had to  give. Not many rod men, even  among those most proficient,  mastered the herring line.  It is said that Barclay, a Flower  Island regular, devised this  method of rowboating. Certainly  it was used by him with out-  standing success,  Wildlife corner  by Ian Corrance  The following is an excerpt  from a letter I received last  week. The author asked me not  to reveal her name in case editors  from around Canada came knocking at her door for more.  Some fifty years ago, on  our farm in the Okanagan,  one spring a barn swallow  built her nest under the eaves  of the hen-house feed room,  just above the door. It was  apparently fastened to the wall  with a plaster of mud, and I  suppose the constant opening  and closing of the door set up  vibrations that weakened the  seal, and when the nestlings  hatched and began to move  around they finished the job,  for one day I found a disaster  had struck and the nest was  lying on the ground in broken  pieces.   I rushed to look, and  found the babies were alive  and apparently unhurt, so I  picked up the unbroken bowl-  shaped bottom of the nest and  put it on a shelf in the feed-  room for safety while I looked  for a subsitute nest. My  mother had a discarded hat  that was made of a fine braid  stitched into a circular tube  that was then crushed down  into folds to make a turban  effect, and she gave me this.  It was a silver grey in color,  and I thought it would not be  too startling. I ripped out the  lining and snipped the fold  stitches, pushing it out to  (make a long circular sack  with the rounded crown at,.  the bottom. I then rolled it  down from the end to make a  shallow nest with a rim firm  enough to hold the round  shape; padded the crown  part with grass and straw,  set up a ladder, and nailed  the "nest" securely to the  wall where the original nest  had been. I then carried up  the  broken  nest  and   trans  ferred the nestlings to their  new home.  I had scarcely taken away  the ladder when the mother  bird came back, to find her  home magically transformed  into this grey object, and  although she could obviously  see and hear her babies inside  it, she was frightened and  after flying back and forth  a few times, she darted away  down to the barnyard. I  was afraid she had deserted  her family, but in a few  moments there appeared a  whole flock of swallows,  coming from I new not where,  and they formed themselves  into a wheel-like ring, slightly  slanted so the bottom was  nearer the nest than the top,  and screaming madly they began, like well-rehearsed  troops, to fly around. and  around this wheel, swooping  down, passing .'the nest,  rising up the arc, over the  top, and down in another  swoop, each circle bringing  them nearer to the nest.  After a few circlings the  screaming died away to a  twitter. Suddenly, the mother  swallow shot out of the circle  and alighted on the rim of  the nest, the wheel broke  up and the flock vanished as  quickly as they had come.  She raised her babies there.  People use the term "bird-  brain" when they want to  indicate that some person is  ignorant or witless, but that  incident made me wonder if  birds could reason. The  mother swallow found herself  in a frightening situation and  called on her friends for  help. They immediately responded and the wheeling  and screaming were obviously  a challenge to induce any  lurking danger to reveal itself, and as soon as they were  satisfied the nest was harmless they told the mother so,  and she at once accepted their  verdict.  This may have been instinctive behaviour, but to me it  looked like intelligent cooperation, and I thought the  mother swallow showed more  sense than many of us humans  do, when we "rush in where  angels fear to tread", and I  salute the memory of that  little bird.  So that I get to write something, I thought I might mention  seeing two Dippers at Rainy  River, a Ruffled Grouse at  Pender Harbour and a couple  of Coots in the bay at Gibsons  last week.  Letters like the above give us  a more complete insight into  the animals around us, and are  very much appreciated.

It's obeying safety rules.  Accounts of record catches are  difficult to verify after this  length of time. Catches of 85  and 87 by rod men in a single  day are known to have been  made. With spinner and chunk  a Vancouver Island fisherman  took 120 July fish in a day, and  ' another at Bare Rocks took 142.  One September a rod man  took 500 heavier coho in 20 days'  fishing. Over the years, and  especially in the twenties, it is  likely that even bigger catches  were tallied.  Today, the vast schools of blue-  backs and coho which made  such catches possible have  vanished from the Gulf of Georgia  as completely as the way of life  of the rowboat men who followed  them.

Nutrition  notes  Question: Is goat milk better  for babies than cow's milk?  Answer: Goat milk and cow's  milk have similar nutrient values.  The protein differs only slightly  while the fat pattern is quite  different, although the total  amount of fat is similar. Goat  milk is almost completely deficient in folic acid while cow's  milk contains sufficient folic acid  to support normal growth in a  healthy infant. Canned goat  milk is often fortified with vitamins C and D, as is canned  cow's milk, and can safely be  fed to an infant receiving his  folic acid requirements from  other sources such as vegetables.  Goat milk cannot be called better  for babies than cow's milk but  it can be adequate tinder certain  conditions.  Question: My family hates  liver. What other foods are good  sources of iron?  Answer: Other good sources of  iron would include other organ  meats (kidney, heart), red meats,  dried peas, dried beans, lentils,  dark green leafy vegetables,  whole grain or enriched breads  and cereals, egg yolks, nuts  and dried fruits (raisins, apricots, etc.).

Soccer Wanderers  Strikes and  spares  by Bud Mulcaster  Our two 400 bowlers of last  year, Bonnie McConnell and  Paulette Sheldon, took in the 400  Club Tournament held at the new  Shellmont Lanes last Sunday.  It's an impressive tournament  and the ladies were bowling in  some swift company. It's only  a three game tournament so you  don't have time to leave any  open frames. You have to start  hot and stay hot or you're left  in the dust. Neither Bonnie nor  Paulette fared too well but it's  good experience and - hopefully  we'll have a few 400's rolled  this year and can take in this  tournament again next year.  This year's winner was Ted  Halabourda of Vancouver who  rolled a 448 game in his second  game. Ted had 11 strikes in a  row and left a wobbling corner  pin on his last ball. This was  the first 400 game rolled in  this tournament and the first  400 game rolled at Shellmont  Lanes.  For all your Carpets  T.

On the rocks  by Pat Edwards  The Green Bonspiel scheduled  for the coming weekend promises  to be a lot of fun for curlers and  non-curlers alike. Response has  been good and to date about  twenty rinks have entered. A  number of non-curlers have  accepted our invitation to curl  free of charge but there is still  ice time available. You needn't  feel that you are the only non-  curler on the ice, so don your  woolies and come out and give it  a whirl! It really is a lot of fun.  Experienced curlers are taking .at  least one but preferrably two  green curlers in tow to show  them the finer points of the  game. Entries must be phoned to  Maurice Pearson at 886-2196  no later than Wednesday at 5:00  p.m. as the draws will be completed on Wednesday evening.  Skips will be notified by Maurice  and they in turn will notify their  rinks.  Drawmaster Larry Boyd urges  all league players who have not  yet registered to do so as soon  as possible. League play begins  on October 11th and many entries have not been received.  Call Larry at 886-2031 during  business hours or 886-2030  evenings. Larry reports that  Wednesday night mixed is almost  full but ice is still available  during the rest of the week. Response has been poor to the call  for ladies on Thursday nights.  Unless there are more entries  within the next few days, it is  feared that the ladies evening  will be scrapped. Where are all  your working gals who expressed'  interest in an evening league?

The Wanderers Senior Men's  Soccer Club is' holding their  first dance ofthe season on Saturday, October 22nd at the Gibsons  Legion. Ticket sales will begin  this Thursday. Fans are encouraged to get in on a great dance*.  Last year the Wanderers had a  disco dance at the high school,  this year they will feature the  Horizon Band.  In regular league play the  Wanderers and the Sechelt  Selects played to an exciting 1-1  draw before at least a. hundred  cheering fans this Sunday. Both  teams played well in a tight  checking fast moving game.  Graham Chapman scored his  second goal of the season on an  indirect kick from just outside  the 18 yard line. Perry Williams  scored the Selects goal on a  header from a corner kick.  Bjorn Bjornson played his best  game of the season with his  close checking and quick passes.  Other Wanderers who played  well were Jan de Reus in goal,  Steve Miles, who played inside  left for the first time, Art Dew  who looks like the rookie of the  year and Corkie Bland who was  sure and steady.  Again, the Wanderers played  a team game instead of a star  game. There was lots of good  passing and many shots on goal.  Penalty Shots: This Sunday,  the Wanderers journey to Vancouver to take on the Shamrock  Labatts at Gordon Park, 49th and  Knight Street, at 2:00 p.m.  Rugby club  The Gibsons Rugby Club gave  the city lads another lesson in  how the game of rugby is supposed to be played this weekend  as the fourths huffed and puffed  their way past the Scribes 14-0  and the thirds wrecked the Georgians 27-3. In the first of two  matches played at the Elphinstone field a Gibsons fourth division team composed of folks who  will never see 35 again and some  high school lads still waiting to  turn 18 showed brilliant discipline and team work in downing  an equally ancient Scribes side.  Although outsized by their ale-  swilling rivals, Gibsons dominated both scrums and lineouts to  get much more than their fair  share of the ball. Gibsons-���  hooker, Jack Tiernan, consistent-,  ly stole the ball from the opposition and the fine play of John  Spence in the lineouts gave the  Gibsons' backfield, led by scrum-  half Gary Gray, a chance to display some beautifully executed  running. Tries were scored by  Bob Johnson, John Spence and  Gary Gray. A conversion by  Rick Lawson rounded out the  scoring.  The second game was much  faster, rougher, and in some respects less disciplined. Gibsons'  monster scrum totally outmuscled  the Georgians but the opponents  were much more successful in  the lineouts, thus assuring both  sides an equal share of the ball.  The opening minutes were even  but a pair of injuries to the  Georgians proved their undoing  as Gibsons surged ahead from  that point. Gibsons' tries were  scored by Brian Evans, Ryan  Matthews and Pat Gaines, the  latter two scoring two each.  Frank Havies added a penalty  kick and two converts.  Elphinstone Wanderers Junior  soccer team played their third  game against Mt. Seymour  Royals at Langdale field on Sunday, October 2nd. The Wanderers trampled the Royals 2-1.  The first goal was made by  Robbie Jonas, assisted by Bobby  Nicholas. The winning goal  was made by Bryan Armstrong,  and again assisted by Bobby  Nicholas.  Especially good games were  played by Neil and Noel Goddard,  Cory Mottishaw and Mark jacobson.  Beginning October 16th, the  Wanderers Junior team will be  playing every other Sunday at  Langdale field at 12 noon. Fans  are urged to come out for these  games.  Bananas tie  by Wendy Skapski  In the second week of league  play the Pender Harbour Bananas  tied the Sechelt Chiefs 3-3 in a  closely-contested match. The  Bananas led 2-0 at half time on  goals by Larry Campo, assisted  by Al Vance and Gordon Kammerle, and Kammerle himself,  assisted by Campo and Mike  West.  Second half play saw the  Chiefs rallying with three quick  goals by Ted Dixon, Kenny  Paul, and Billy August. The  Bananas stormed back from this  Action at the Peninsula Gales practice on Thursday night. The business of selecting the  team which will bring international hockey to the sunshine Coast was made more difficult  by the large number of dedicated young athletes who tried out.  set back and scored the tying  goal on a glorious header by  Rick Little off a free kick taken  by Peter Kinney.  Next week the Bananas' play  the Elphinstone Wanderers at  the Pender Harbour field and the  Sechelt Chiefs take on Wakefield at Hackett Park. Both  games will start at 2:00 p.m. on  Sunday, October 9th.  Sechelt Minor Hockey  The selection of the Sechelt  Minor Hockey teams will be made  on Saturday, October 7th at the  arena. The times are: Pups 8  and under, 12:15 to 1:15, Tykes  9 and 10, 1:15 to 2:15, Pee Wee  11 and 12. 2:30 to 3:30, Bantam,  13 and 14, 3:45 to 4:45, Midget  and   Juvenile   15   to   18  years.  5:00 to 6:00.  Teams will be selected during  this practice so all players,  coaches and assistant coaches  please attend. Only those registered and paid will be allowed on  the ice. You may register before  your allotted ice time if you have  not done so as vet.

Harmony Hall Happenings  by Jim Holt  Well, well, well, our first  anniversary party of the opening  of our hall is over and what a  wonderful night it was. About 70  showed up and a most enjoyable  time was had by all those present.  To start off with we had a movie  shown by Ted Dinsley that lasted  for about half an hour, then on  with the dancing which was a  wonderful experience, as we had  under the guidance of John  Bushell some square dance  lessons. The "Senior Swingers  Orchestra" played real toe  tapping music and the members  of the orchestra who came down  to play for us from Sechelt and  some as far away as Madeira  Park. They are as follows: Piano  Evelyn Bushell, Al Fox banjo,  Charley Lucken violin, Ernie  Rietze on electric guitar and  John Bushell was the caller.  Thanks a million for the wonderful job you did. You sent everyone home tired but happy. We  missed our good friends Emory  and Grace Scott. Emory, as 1  reported last week, was in hospital but I am pleased to say that  he is up and around again so we  will have the pleasure of Emory  and Grace's company at some  future date. We also had a lovely  Birthday cake with just one  candle on it, this was cut by our  good treasurer Irene Bushfield,  who along with Mel Eckstein  was responsible for the wonderful eats we had. We certainly  thank those lady members for  what they have done and are  still doing.  We also had a Plaque presented to us by Mr. Duncan Roberts.  Mr. Roberts, as you all know, is  the owner of "Roberts Signs"  of Gibsons and the work on it  is just fantastic. It is made in  the form of a shield and is done in  Olde English Lettering on a blue  background with gold trim. The  names of all the members who  worked on the project are printed  on it, and when Mr. Roberts  presented it to me, after thanking  him for his wonderful donation  to the hall, I presented it to our  treasurer, Irene Bushfield who  worked as hard as anyone keeping the books in shape and  looking   after   our   finances   in  general. She in turn presented  it to Ed Conner, our project  superintendent, who was the only  carpenter on the job, and as I  said, the only man who could hit  a nail twice in the same place.  However, everything went off  beautifully and my grateful  thanks to Mr. Roberts for making  it up for us, it is truly a masterpiece and is now hanging in the  hall for everyone to see. Thanks  again Mr. Duncan Roberts for  your kindness and consideration  and especially for your effort to  help make the members of Harmony Hall a happier bunch of  people. Thanks also to Einor  Jorgensen for his beautiful  flowers for the table decorations,  they were just lovely and really  brightened up the tables.  Now to get down to the business of the trip to Bellingham.  The bus will be leaving sharp at  8:30 a.m. on Wednesday, October  5th so be on time or you will  likely be left behind. The bus  is full so if there is anyone  likely to change their mind about  going please let us know. Either  Vi Lynds at 886-7428 or myself  at 886-2363 as we have a waiting  list for people who want to go,  so please if you are not sure of  going, let us know, it will be  greatly appreciated by Vi and  myself. ,  Now to get back to last week's  column, I guess you are wondering about the road map to Harmony Hall, well I guess the Coast  News forgot to print it. (Editor's  Note: Didn't forget, got squeezed  for space. Sony Folks!) So this  week I am going to give it to  you in a different way, instead  of drawing a map I will give you  the directions of how to get to  Harmony Hall. As you know it is  in the Bay area for a start. From  the Post Office go down Gower  Point Road, to Trueman Road,  turn right on Trueman Road, go  a short half block and turn left  on Burns Road, follow Burns  up to Harmony Lane, turn right  on Harmony Lane and it will  bring you right to Harmony  Hall. Harmony Lane is bounded  by Burns Road, Cochran Road,  and Franklin Road and if you are  not too. sure of where you are  just knock on any door and I am  Aerobics gets you fit  Have fun, get into shape, meet  some  friends,   and  dance  your  ^ cares away!' What more can one ,  ask of a pleasant hour at an Aero-7  'bic dance' class? This lively  combination of exercise and  dance movements set to catchy,  toe-tapping music will make your  'arms swing, your legs leap, your  heart pound, and your lungs  pant - but all you'll think you're  doing is dancing. The exercise  just happens at the same time!  It's the most fun thing around,  and there are several classes '  starting this very week.  If you did Aerobics last year  and already know the dances, an  advanced class will be held in the  Wilson Creek Community Hall  on Mondays at 9:30 a.m. and  Thursdays at 1:30 p.m. for beginners,   there   is   a   choice   of  several times and places: come  Mondays at 7:30 p.m. to the  Music Room of Chatelech School;  \ or'Thursdays at9:30 ajrri.to the  Wilson Creek Community Hall,  or join Louise Mason at 7:30 p.m.  on Thursday at the Lunch Room  at Elphinstone High.

At the Bingo on Thursday night quite a few people  asked me as they said they had  read where I said follow the  dotted lines, but they couldn't  find my dotted lines to follow,  that is the reason I am writing  the directions this time and hope  to have signs made pointing in  the direction of the hall. Trusting  this will help you out in finding  you way to the hall.  I was pleased to see quite a  number of new faces at the  Bingo on Thursday and to you I  say Welcome to Harmony Hall,  we hope to see you come back.  Don't forget the Carpet Bowling  is cancelled for next Wednesday  Oct. 5th on account of so many  Carpet Bowlers are going on the  Bellingham    trip.

Like "I meant to get  some change but...." Or "Sure I care about kids but..."  Those little spooks and goblins know that  collected in their orange and black boxes  often means the difference between life  and death to a small, friendless human  somewhere in this world.  So at Hallowe'en, when the young voices  call "Trick or Treat for UNICEF",  please don't give them any "buts."  Help them to show their concern for  the world's destitute children by  putting a few coins in the UNICEF  box. That kind of caring is desperately  needed in our world today.

"A great place to live but a  bad place to make a living."  The man who said this on  Hourglass Monday night was  describing Penticton, but if one  were asked to describe the situation in Pender Harbour it would  be hard to find better words.  Penticton's experience is worth  a close look by anyone curious  about our own future because  they have chosen the same path  we now appear to be headed  down - towards an economy based  mainly on tourism and residential  housing - only they are a good ten  years further along.  In comparing the two areas  however, it is well to keep in  mind that Penticton has been  more successful in both the  recreational and retirement fields  that Pender Harbour can ever  expect to.be. The interior town is  on a main access route, not  tucked out ofthe way and isolated  by expensive ferry crossings,  and hence has a far greater  traffic flow to exploit than this  area. In' addition it possesses  some ofthe province's better ski  facilities and has a winter season  to bolster the tourist operators'  summer income. On the retirement side, the Okanagan offers  boating, fishing, scenery - everything we have except rain. It  has been particularly successful  in attracting retired people from  the prairies, something we could  not do because the sea and  mountains are too alien to these  people.  So Penticton has made as much  of a success as it is possible to  make of the recreation/retirement economy in a moderate  climate - how do they like it?  They hate it. The gentleman  on Hourglass was the head of  the local Chamber of Commerce  and he was crying the blues.  Because of its seasonality the  tourism provides few year-round  jobs, he said, and because of the  lack of year-round. income the  off-season is a yearly trial of  survival for local merchants.  Because the recreation/retirement economy tends to drive the  work force away and discourage  industrial economy tends to drive  industrial ^development/., theffe'  isn't much of'a tax base, but on  the other hand the highly developed residential areas with  their demand for sewers and  sidewalks and water and parks  are extremely costly to service.  The result is that the city is continually hard up.  The lessons for Pender Har-  bourites here are two: one is  that it is possible to choose your  economic fate through planning  and zoning and the other is that  the exclusively recreational, residential and retirement economy is  a very bad choice.  If any further proof is needed,  it is only necessary to look around  at some of the other recreational  and residential towns - White  Rock, Qualicum, Birch Bay,  Ganges, Sidney - every one- of  them "a bad place to make a  living". There is also the evidence that with the increase in  tourism over the past ten years  Pender Harbour has become a  harder rather than an easier place  to make a living. In spite of the  high profile taken by marinas ���  and motels in the area, it would  be hard to name a single family  that makes a year-round living  out of a tourist business. Even  the owners in some cases seek  additional employment in the  off-season. Stores owe a piece of  their business to tourism, but  the only extra employment it  creates is part-time. Land and  housing development creates  somewhat more work but it's  spotty at best. Fielding's booming ground probably has a bigger  annual payroll than all the development businesses combined.  ���"���0./7,     S  This interior shot of the Pender Harbour Clinic  indicates the intriguing architecture of the building. Dr. Bernstein is the physician in charge,  Tina Kanahele is in charge of administration,  Dr. Synnot is the dentist though he will be replaced by dentist Dr. Miller in November, Darlene Snell is the Nurse Practitioner, and Lome  Mitchell is responsible for maintenance.  To say that it would be a mistake for the Pender-Egmont area  to stake its future on tourism and  residential development is not to  say local people already established in those businesses should  suffer in any way. The problem  is to stop further leaps down this  road owing to increasing outside  investment, and to maintain at  least the economic balance the  area now has. The Community  Plan can be an effective weapon  in this struggle by incorporating  measures to hold back on new  recreational and residential de-  . velppment while . holding the  ageft open to other things.  The key to land use in an area  such as this with limited employment opportunities should be  flexibility - not for the developer  but for the individual homeowner - so that a person has as  many options open to him as  possible.  Lot sizes should be large  enough to support gardens and  backyard industries such as  shake-splitting, salal processing,  antique shops and repair shops.  It is this kind of freedom of land  use that distinguishes rural communities from suburban communities.  Another prime consideration  in planning for an area with a  weak economic base is to keep  services down to an affordable  level. Planners who do not  understand country-style living  often claim that the more crowded  an area is the cheaper it is to  service, because a sewer line for  instance is more economical if  it has 20 subscribers per block  than if it has only 2. What  these narrowly programmed experts often overlook is that it's  much more economical yet if  there is no sewer at all - and the  need for sewers can be avoided  if lot sizes are kept to an acre or  larger.  Looking at the present draft of  the Pender Harbour Community  Plan, it would appear that these  considerations have either been  overlooked or rejected. The first  policy is "to encourage develop-  ment of residential subdivisions"; ' Some plarT'committee  members have requested a minimum lot size regulation but it  has apparently been rejected.  There are extensive sections encouraging subdivisions and recreational facilities but only one  short reference to the needs of  commercial fishermen. Even so  it gives them no credit for the  $1.5 million they annually contribute to the local economy,  but suggests only they should be  tolerated because they are "part  of the character of Pender Harbour". Section provides  that "repair depots and marine  supply facilities should be encouraged" but only providing  "they do not interfere with existing small-lot development in  the Harbour". It seems that  everything is being asked to take  a back seat to residential develop-  ment in this plan.

And why not? I should be  back from Europe and in among  the Sunshine Coast folks. So I  will try to sing diminuendo just  this once. No rantin', no ravin'?  Well, mebbe a wee bit. I just  want to show you ladies I am a  liberationist from way back.  There was a spell of male chauvinism when I wore short pants,  and was more often than not a  barefoot laddie. Cute little  rompers with pigtails sometimes  put me on the defensive with  their withering scorn, when they  were not wheedling favours. So,  enter the male chauvinist, the  tree-climber, in short, the show-  off.  No. I didn't need to be married  to learn that I could just as well  drop the idea that I was one of  the "Lords of Creation", but it  was a sobering experience.  Here's a question for you. What  is the last bastion of vaunted  male supremacy? Here's your  answer: The Church.  From the higher echelons  (basic English - powers that be),  popes, bishops, etcetera, come  the most stupid bunch of tripe  the mind of man can dream up.  And they say it with heretofore  awesome authority - enough' to  shrivel up your bone-marrow -  that: "We must follow scripture  for our guidance in matters both  spiritual and temporal."  Get your chin down, clasp  your hands well, make your voice  People of the area should look  at the experience of places like  Penticton and ask themselves if  this course is a wise one.  Our squib from last time about  Area 'A' people keeping an eye  on the move., to readjust voting  powers on the Regional Board has  drawn a call from Area 'B' director Peter Hoemberg, who initiated the move. According to him,  Area 'A' has nothing to worry  about. Each area is given one  vote on the board for each thousand residents and property  owners, and as soon as an area  goes over the next thousand  mark, it is due for another vote.  Hoember says Area 'A' is. up  over two thousand now, and  possibly over three thousand,  which would make it eligible for  an increase of two votes. Area.  4B' (Halfmoon Bay-West Sechelt)  would also gain, but Sechelt  Village would; not. Area ' F'  (Port Mellon) might even lose its  second vote.  "It's primarily the northern  areas that would gain from readjustment,'* Hoemberg said.  He added that he thought Area  'A' has been doing well off the  Regional Board lately in general.  ghostie-like, and it comes out  like your trying out an echo in a  cathedral.  What do they mean, though?  Well it seems the Jews, pardon.  Israelites, were being chased all  over Palestine, as usual, and,  scratching for the bones of a  living always had met some wise,  sophisticated people of other  races who had their shot-in-the-  dark theories of creation, and  even an Eden or two to round  out the grand legends their  ancestors had told them. Now  tent-dwellers can have oodles of  pride, these wandering gypsy  tribes of Semetic extraction pride-  fully told they too had a creation  story, and it was a beaut. For  theirs' had a God who talked,  and had a man and woman ten-'  ding His garden. What is more,  they said, "We are the direct  descendants of this man and  woman, who were called Adam  and Eve." With special emphasis  they laid it on that God had made  Adam first, poor Eve was second  in the human race. (She is really  trying to catch up now.)  That really sounded good so  they put it in writing, oh, hundreds of years after when some of  them learnt from other nationalities how to read and write. They  put in lots of other stuff on scrolls  that they claimed to be their  laws. But back to that garden  of Eden, as it goes in Genesis.  Here are the words the V.l.P's  of the churches had always  latched on to as sanctioned by  God Himself. God-speak is as  follows: - "I will make him  (Adam) an help meet for him."  Modern English, He would have  a, helper. The Jews bigoted with  the old laws of the desert disdained to refer to Eve as: yet.  Then again they dubbed God with  the spoken word. Of: Eve He  said, "He shall rule over.thee."  : No quarrel of who came first,  egg or hen, for the rooster "came  first in the name of anAdam.  So the Church monguls now claim  absolute authority. Again-the  Church has been responsible for  conditions that could haye'been  avoided. Slavery of wbmetf in  myriad forms, even in marriage  went on for too many centuries.  Then, against the uplifting of  women by no other than Christ,  St. Paul spoils it all when he  declared, "The head of the  woman is man - for 'the woman  was created for man.' " But,  dear folks and gentle people,  it must be so for the bible says  so.

Last week's winner was Art Shaw of Box 471  Gibsons, who correctly identified the pictured object as being a gate on Hanbury Road in  Roberts Creek.  More Letters  Flight   Continued  said, "I'm at Powell River. I  missed you on the way up, and  want to see you on my way back."  We went on to discuss bus schedules etc. and I suddenly thought,  "Gosh, I haven't flown for twelve  years, why don't 1 take the Aero  Club plane and fly up to Powell  River and pick up my buddy?"  I arranged to have the club plane  the following day.  The next day I pulled my ten-  speed out of my driveway and  headed for Gibsons-Sechelt  International Airport - during my  pre-flight 'walk around' the aeroplane I noticed one Tyee Beaver  (great aircraft - great company)  fly over to land at Porpoise Bay.  'Contact!' and the powerful 150  H.P. Continental engine burst  into life, emitting 56.25 decibels.  After a pre-flight run-up I was  racing down runway 29, the little  Continental pushing 78.67 decibels. I climbed out and began  a slow ascent to 4000 feet. (You  fly odd numbers on a heading of  0-179 degrees and even numbers  from 180-359 degrees to avoid  collisions.) My heading was 270  for Powell River. Suddenly I  was astounded (I suspect I was  even non-plussed!) to the left of  me a "swarm" of aircraft were in  sight, bunched together - rather  like mosquitoes - God, I thought  there must be all of 1,998 of  them. However, I continued to  Powell River. The only traffic  there was a Pacific Western  flight departing for Vancouver.  I saw him take off and landed I  shortly after.  My buddy Ben was there,  and after a pleasant coffee in  the Powell River flying club, we  were off and heading back to  good old Gibsons-Sechelt International. Ben and I had a lot to  talk about; suddenly Ben nervously grabbed my arm, "Heavens Bob," he said, "look at all  these aircraft." (So I hadn't been  dreaming!) Once again I saw  the great swarm of aircraft -  why there were no collisions  amazed me. "How many do you  think there are?" I asked Ben.  "Well at a rough guess I would  say 2000," he said. We passed  the swarm, soon Sechelt was  ahead. I throttled back out over  White Island, turned on base leg  and clicked on two notches of  flap (I could distinctly hear the  clicks - as the ole Continental  was idling and pushing out all  of 6.8 decibels.) We landed on  runway 29 and taxied back to  the aircraft parking area. Ben  assisted me to tie the aircraft  down. "How about a cold beer  at the clubhouse, Ben?"  We stood before the cosy  fire in the clubhouse enjoying  a brew. Ben said, "How could  anyone live underneath all these  aircraft we saw, God, the noise  must be unbearable," he continued, "Imagine 2000 aircraft  passing over your head."  "1998," I corrected. "No matter," said Ben, "If the guy puts  up with it, he must be very good  natured, if it were me I would  raise hell!"  R. Gentles  Gibsons, B.C.  Bouquet  Editor:  Last week your newspaper  published a picture of young  David Atlee who has just been  awarded a shield for proficiency  in target shotting, and we thank  you very much for bringing his  achievement to the attention of  the public.  I thought it would be appropriate at this time to say a word  or two about the man who, and  I think David would agree with  this, made all this possible.  I refer, of course, to Andy  Anderson   who   ran   the   Junior  programme of the Gibson's  Wildlife Club for over twenty  years. That's 20 years of Monday  nights for two hours every night  with the exception of school  holidays and long weekends,  and for 95% of the time with no  help from anyone else. Total all  this up and it comes to a pretty  impressive amount of time put  into a project by one guy. 1  don't want to embarrass Andy  with a whole lot of soft sentimental drivel but I think his  efforts deserve some kind of  recognition by the Club and by  the parents of those young people  who went through the mill at  one time or another.  It's    quite     a     responsibility  teaching   youngsters   of   twelve  WATCH  FOR  LUCKY  ��� 7*  HOLIDAYING?

It would be interesting to know  how many Juniors had come  under Andy's wing during these  years. He made it quite clear  who was in charge when they  were on the range but did it in  such a way that nobody felt in  the least bit trodden under.  There was discipline but only  they deserved it and didn't bear  any grudge because of it. In  other words Andy treated his  Juniors as responsible young  people and they appreciated it.  Maybe for some of them it was  the first time they had been  treated like this and it took a  bit of getting used to, but Andy  had a way of putting them at  ease and consequently they  learned things sometimes without  even being aware that they were  being taught and this is the way  the learning process works best.  They had fun doing it too.  Thanks,   Andy,   on   behalf of  members of the Wildlife Club  who, although they are not in  the habit of handing out bouquets  for their members efforts, really  do appreciate what you have  done over all these years.
