Secheli doctors' case presented  Clinic support  on  by Pender Harbour Ratepayers' Association Committee  Dr. Eric Paetkau of the Sechelt Medical Clinic contacted  Howard White, representative of the Pender Harbour Ratepayers' Committee last week to express his personal concern  about a letter in the August 30 Coast News criticising his group  on the cross-coverage issue. The letter, signed by Gusty  Thomas, objected to the Pender Harbour Medical Clinic having  to pay $7,000 to Sechelt doctors for looking after Pender Harbour hospital patients on weekends and Paetkau was afraid  it represented a common response to the article on cross-  coverage in this space a few weeks ago. He wondered why  the Sechelt Clinic had not been contacted prior to the original  article thereby avoiding misunderstanding and the resultant  hositility.  Dr.   Paetkau feels that  criticism  surrounding  the  cross-  tions to move St. Mary's Hospital  to Sechelt, and he said they did  establish a local clinic in the old  hospital building and later in  Madeira Park but there was so  little business they couldn't  afford to keep it up full-time.  "Perhaps if we had been smart  we would have applied for a subsidy ourselves back then,"  Paetkau said. "It was costing tis  a small fortune."  Subsidy  In recommending a subsidized  clinic, Paetkau said, his group did  coverage issue is unfair because his group is actually being not recommend a subsidized  very supportive to the Pender Harbour clinic. He points out  that the cross-coverage charge applies to in-patient visits only,  and that it is necessary because the doctors do not receive  fees for these visits. By providing cross-coverage for free,  Sechelt doctors would actually be subsidizing the Pender  Harbour doctor, and they don't see why they should do this.  The Pender doctor's 40-hour per week salary is more than  any ofthe Sechelt doctors make working 50 - 60-hours per week,  according to Paetkau, and the prospect of having to do unpaid  extra work on his behalf did create some resentment. The  payment they have asked for is really only a token to make them  feel better and works out to just $3 per hour - the minimum  wage, Paetkau said. He said further that the $18,000 discussed  would have provided 24-hour per day hospital coverage, thereby  eliminating the necessity of the Pender doctor having to break  of in the middle of his office hours to attend a hospital patient.  On   the   wider   issue   of  the  Rotation  Asked why the Pender Harbour  doctor couldn't work in rotation  and trade his hospital time for  the others' time on an even-  money basis, Paetkau agreed  some doctors may do this in  other hospitals but denied that  it was a common practice. Members of his clinic have a policy  of primary care responsibility  and don't wish to turn their  patients over to an outsider- who  would-be unfamiliar -with their  cases, he said. "Our new "doctors  work under supervisors with constant back-up help for a long  period of time. ^ Only when we  know their capabilities do they  look after the hospital on their  own. We have no sure way of  assessing another doctor's capabilities unless he is in our clinic."  He added that hospital policy requires each clinic to look after  its own patients. Under the  current arrangement, he said,  the Pender doctor does not treat  any Sechelt patients.  Sechelt Clinic's attitude to the  Pender Harbour Clinic, Paetkau  denied that there had ever been  any attempt to obstruct the community facility. Far from wanting  to discourage independent clinics  which might break their so-called  monopoly over Sunshine Coast  medicine, Paetkau said his clinic  was and is glad to see an end to  the one-clinic situation, "so  people could have a choice". His  clinic had never sought to influence government decisions  regarding the Pender clinfif mit'*  government did once come to  Sechelt for an opinion on health  service in the area and they  actively recommended the.building of a subsidized doctor's office  plus 24-hour a day telephone  answering service and an ambulance. The basis they used for  recommending this, Paetkau  said, was his clinic's experience  in providing , service to Pender  Harbour. He acknowledges that  his group had promised to run  a clinic at Pender Harbour in a  letter circulated during negotia-  full-time doctor. Their proposal,  when the community went ahead  with plans to build its own clinic,  was to~ have a doctor provided on  a sessional basis by the Sechelt  Clinic. Under this arrangement  a Sechelt doctor would come to  the community clinic as often as  required and would stay as long  as-required. The clinic would pay  Paetkau's group $110 per session  and according to Paetkau these  sessions were to be a half-day  in length. The advantage to the  clinic would be the flexibility,  fewer sessions being required in  winter. Paetkau feels this would  have answered the medical needs  of the community at much less  cost than keeping an independent  doctor on full-time salary as the  clinic does now. The doctor provided under the Sechelt scheme  would have another advantage  of being part of a larger group  with the full backup of his colleagues, and would not be . a  "loner" as an independent doctor  must be. Paetkau wonders  what the community feels it has  gained with the extra cost it  is incurring over the independent  ^.d^or��:J|;hou'gh'he agreed-it "may,;  well happen" that the clinic with ���  increased use will be able to pay  its own way in the future.  "It ends up that he's only  available half a day because he  has to spend his mornings at  the hospital, and as far as being a  part of the community, available .  for night calls, well, he lives at  Secret Cove which is halfway  between   the   two   communities  and he's off dutv at five o 'clock.''  Asked whether he felt the Pender Harbour doctor was now in a  tenable situation, Paetkau said,  "Ask him.    He's got it made.  He's getting $40,000 a year for  40 hours a week plus benefits  and.we're backing him up for the  minimum wage. We just wish  those Pender Harbour people  would come down and negotiate  a contract like that for us."  Paetkau added that the current  Pender doctor, Dr. Ed. Bernstein,  is "a very nice guy" and is well  liked in Sechelt. "He's conscientious. You're lucky to have  him."   Federal  candidate  Harley Robertson is no stranger to running for office.    The  most recent addition to the list  of candidates who are contesting  for the N.D.P. federal nomination  for the Comox-Powell River riding  served as the President of the  B.C.   Teachers'   Federation   in-.  1966-67 and  was  narrowly  defeated in the provincial riding of/  Skeena in  1969 which was .'���the'!  year ofthe Socred sweep.       '":   'X.  In   a   conversation   with   tHe:  Coast News last week, Robertsbri7  listed his priorities in the event1  that he should win the N.D.P:~  federal nomination.   First on his  list would  be  the  question   of  coastal    marine    transportation:  "There   just   has   to   be   some  interconnection between the little  settlements of the coast," said  Robertson who grew up in Fanny.)  Bay just south of Courtenay7 in.  the   days   when   marine   trans-''''  portation   was   all   there   was.  "There is no reason why those,  settlements cannot be served by  regular   niarine   freight   service  as they were in the past," said  Robertson.   7  A second priority listed -by;.-  - Robertson was the welfare of tiie"  fishing particularly as .- it is  affected by logging. "We need  to spend time and money to" re-  channel rivers for salmon spawning," said Robertson, pointing  to the fact that1 many of the  coast's finest salmon spawning  streams had . been ruined by  short-sighted logging practices.  Thirdly, Robertson stressed the  need for some remedial action  for the problems of the general  economy and the employment  picture. He shared the opinion  of those who feel that the issue of  Sometime on Saturday night the village store  in Gibsons was broken into.

Opposing claims had been made about  the quality of Granthams water with some claiming that the  quality of the water was first class while others quoted from a  Health Unit report which had recently described the water as  unsatisfactory.  ?^Health (^cer-Br^ooks y^     able ,to clear up the confusion  entirely/ rleex^ is routinely  sampled twice a month in a test for choloform bacteria. A sterilized bottle is filled from a tap in the Granthams area. Five  10-millilitre samples are then taken from the tap water and a  culture media is introduced and then the samples are incubated  for a given period to see if there is any growth of choloform  bacteria.  In the most recent water sampling done in August one of the  five samples showed culture growth. Brooks explained that  while culture growth in only one of five samples is considered  quite acceptable, concern not being felt until three of five  samples consistently showed culture growth, it is nonetheless  required that the water be technically described as "unsatisfactory" if any culture growth whatever is found in it.  It would appear, therefore, that both apparently contradictory  claims made for the Granthams water are correct. The water  is of good quality but has for technical reasons been described  lately as unsatisfactory. The Health Officer is required to describe water in which choloform bacteria has been found as  unsatisfactory but he stressed that the water in Granthams was  in fact of continuing high quality and no cause for major concern  could be found with it.  When further questioned by the Coast News about the long-  range possibility of the quality of Granthams Landing water  being contaminated by developments on the hill above the well,  Brooks said that while this was a possibility it was by no means  certain that contamination will in fact take place.

Police news of the week  James Higgs of Gibsons died  from injuries received in a single  car accident on Hall Road last  Wednesday. His car left the  road and hit a power pole at  8:55 in the evening, he was  takejn to St. Mary's Hospital, at  11:05 the hovercraft arrived from  Vancouver and took him to Lions  Gate Hospital. He died in hospital on Thursday evening.  - ^Tliere weire'���four breaking ;:and"  enterings in the area last week.  On August 28th a private home on  Dolphin Street was broken into,  carpeting and light furniture  were taken. Brian's Auto Body  had $15 in change stolen from  its premises on the same evening.  On August 30th a home on East  Porpoise Bay Road was broken  into, and also on the 30th there  was an attempted robbery on .  North Fletcher Road. An identification officer from Vancouver  arrived on the 31st to check for  finger prints on the latter.  A boat was rented out by  Smitty's Marina in Gibsons on  the 17th of last month and not  returned. It is a 13'/2 foot Sangster with a 9.8 Mercury outboard.  Howe Sound has been searched  but as yet the boat has not  turned up.  Dynamite  . A"srnalrtriink containing aKtnit;  twenty-sticks of dynamite and a  length of fuse was found by Mrs.  MacFarline of West Porpoise  Bay. She was climbing a rock  face in Sechelt Inlet across from  Salmon Inlet, looking for a bansai  arbutus when she noticed the  trunk hidden behind a tree.  Inside was the dynamite.  a coil of fuse and a man's vest.  It was reported to the Sechelt  RCMP who disposed of it. It  had been left by a company  which had been working in the  area.  Drama at the Dogwood  Carl Dixon of the Sechelt Indian Band is shown  here being sworn in as a member of the R.C.M.P.  He will be the first native constable from this  area.   Also in the picture are Inspector Munro  who officiated at the ceremony, Chief Cy Baker,  Chief Calvin  Craigan,   SGT.   Farenholz,   and  Clarence Joe.  First native mountie for this area  The officer in charge of  the Western Division of the  RCMP, Inspector Munro, swore  Carl Dixon in as the 50th native  member ofthe force in Canada.  The swearing-in ceremony was  performed last Thursday at the  Sechelt Band Office. Present  were two visiting chiefs, Cy  Baker of Squamish and Bill  Mitchell of Powell River.  Clarence Joe voiced the feelings of Sechelt Chief Calvin  Craigan, when he told the gathering or the pride he felt at this  historic occasion for the Sechelt  Band. "The chiefs and Council  have been working along with the  RCMP towards this goal," he  said. "Carl is setting a good  example for others. We have Cy  Baker and Bill Mitchell here and  they will be going back to their  own bands to report what has  happened here today."  Chief Cy Baker related how,  when he had been band manager  he had tried to initiate this program "so we could have our own  police on our own land." He  thanked the band for its hospitality and hoped this would be the  beginning   of something   which  may branch into fisheries and  education. "These are some of  the things we have been fighting  for," he said. "It is now up to  the'young people and Carl could  be one of the people to do it."  Carl is thirty years old, he went  to school at Sechelt Elementary,  his secondary schooling was in  Mission. He "has been working  in child care for eight years.  Proprietess of the Dogwood  Cafe in lower Gibsons, Beth  Hawken, was leaning out the  seaward window at the back  of the cafe last Thursday afternoon during a slack period  when she saw a young girl  struggling in the water.  "Won't someone please help  me," called the girl.  "There's a little girl in the  water and she needs help!"  Beth announced to the half-empty  cafe. In a moment it was entirely  empty as the entire clientele  raced to the wharf.  Barry Lavender was first on  the scene and he tore off his  clothes and jumped in and  helped the little girl to safety.  She had been trying to pick  sea-worms off the end of the  wharf when she over-balanced  and fell in.  There's a nice little note on  the wall of the Dogwood Cafe  these days. It reads: "Thank  you to all the folks that left  their coffees and meals to help  our daughter, Jane, on Thursday  afternoon, September 1, 1977.  A very special thanks to Mr.  Barry Lavender, Mrs. Beth  Hawken    and    daughter    Aleta  and   the   fellow   who   went  his boat for a life jacket."  The note is signed - The Robert  Latham Family.  Oil Spill  The oil spill which took place  at Steveston last Monday night  has resulted in the closure of  Area One of Howe Sound for  salmon fishing. Area One extends to and includes Sechelt.  Ten thousand gallons of oil  were spilled into the Fraser  River at Steveston when a floating log damaged a long dis-used  pipe which had been designed to  off-load oil from a ship tanker.  Though the company involved,  Canadian Fishing Co., had used  truck tankers for the past twenty  years.  Ironically, the site of the oil  spill has been owned by the  federal fisheries and environment department since March.  Because of delays in getting  containment equipment to the  scene ofthe spill it was 1:45 p.m.  on Tuesday before a boom was  put around the" oil. The B.C.  Wildlife Federation has called  for an inquiry into the spill.  *><L   ��&���*$&    ... .

C.  + CNA  Of controversy. . .  Two items of particular interest,  perhaps, in this week's paper are the  items on the front page about Granthams  Landing water and its quality and the  interview with Dr. Eric Paetkau on the  policy of the doctors of Sechelt with  regard to the Pender Harbour Clinic.  In the first case, the case of the Granthams Landing water, we had charges  and counter-charges about the quality ol  the water in Granthams.    Some maintained that water was of excellent quality;  others brandished pieces of paper from  the Garibaldi Health Unit in which the  Granthams water supply was described  as unsatisfactory. Charges of lying were  hurled about from one side to the other.  A  meeting with  Health  Inspector Jim  Brooks   cleared   the   whole   matter   up  entirely.    It turns  out that both  sides  are  entirely  correct.     The   Granthams  Landing water is of high and consistent  quality.    It has also been described recently and by the Health Unit as being  "unsatisfactory".    Brooks explains the  latter   statement ,by   explaining   that  whenever any trace of choloform bacteria  is  discovered  in  drinking  water  he  is  compelled   by   the    regulations    which  govern his work to indicate an "unsatisfactory" report even although, as was  the case with the Granthams water, the  amount of bacteria was negligible and  absolutely no cause for concern.  In the controversial question of the  Pender Harbour Clinic and the support  it receives from the Sechelt doctors,  hackles on both sides of the issue were .���  undoubtedly raised both in Pender Harbour and Sechelt. At first glance it would  appear that Dr. Paetkau's thoughtful  and rational explanation of the position  of the Sechelt doctors must go a long  way towards clarifying the whole matter  for all concerned. It affords a glimpse of  the how and why of the organization of  medical services in this area, an organization which by and large, given the  geographic difficulties attendant upon  serving our scattered communities,  serves us very well indeed.  These two separate instances can give  us an awareness of the nature of many  controversies. Difference of opinion we  will always have with us and occasionally  in the expression of those differences  some considerable emotional heat can  be generated. If the differences are  aired openly and examined honestly,  however, it will usually be found that  both points of view have some merit or  at least in the light of open and critical  examination much of the misunderstanding which beclouds the issues can  be dissipated, frequently leaving the  parties to the dispute both enriched by  a depth of understanding not previously  present.  If, by airing the controversies in  question and examining them in the  pages of our newspaper, we have contributed to the understanding of our  readership on the issues in question then  we are performing our function as a  community newspaper. We intend to  keep doing it for a long time to come.  . . . and rationality  The actual business of being central  in a dispute, however, is never a comfortable position to occupy. The continuing controversy about whether to  link up with the Regional water system  in Gibsons and Granthams is a case in  point. The editor of this paper was  roundly chastised this week by a longtime and much-respected resident of  Gibsons for 'siding with Sechelt' in the  dispute over the water link up. It was not  the intention of this newspaper, nor is  it now, to side with any part of the Sunshine Coast against any other. Our  editorial policy since the commencement  of our stewardship of the Coast News  has been to see the Sunshine Coast as  a geographic entity, a rocky ribbon of  British Columbian coast among the  most favoured regions in the world with  a people who share many of the same  problems whether they live in Langdale  or Madeira Park.    The editorial stance  taken in favour of the link up with the  Regional water system was not taken to  side with anyone against anyone. It is  believed that it is a rational stance taken  as a result of reading the advice given  the Gibsons village council by the firm of  consulting engineers hired to tell them  what was the best thing to do about  their future water supplies.  The experts were hired, no doubt at  full professional fees, and made a study  and made their findings known and their  recommendations were that the best way  to provide future water and to avoid  costly duplication of effort was to link  up in a region-wide, gravity-fed water  system from the mountain lakes above  Chapman Creek. To pay consulting  engineers to do a study and then to refuse  to heed their advice is akin to visiting a  doctor and then ignoring what he tells  you. It is simply irrational.  from the files of Coast News  5 YEARS AGO  A building permit for an $80,000  apartment set-up on School Road next to  the maintenance storage area for the  village was approved at a council meeting.  Grants provided by the federal government to the Sunshine Coast Recreational  Centre committee have been put to good  use in developing the area set aside for  the recreation centre. This was evident  to about 35 guests at a picnic held by  the Recreation Committee.  10YEARS AGO  A request that Bowen Island be included in the Sunshine Coast Regional  District was turned down by the directors  at a special meeting of the bard sitting  as a committee of the whole, at the  regional office in Davis Bay.  15 YEARS AGO  Chief Dan Paul, 87, of Sechelt Indian  Band died August 28th and was buried  in Our Lady of Lourdes Church on the  reserve following requiem mass conducted by Rev. James MacDonnel. Chief  Paul was an hereditary chief.  20 YEARS AGO  Some 55 residents of Roberts Creek  responded to a call by the Improvement  Society to attend an emergency meeting  at the Legion Hall to decide what action  could and should be taken regarding the  dumping of garbage, sewage and rubbish  off the Roberts Creek wharf.  Sky watchers at Roberts Creek saw  two planes brush wingtips resulting in  one falling to the water near the wharf.  The dunked pilot, Capt. W. F. Waddington in a B.C. Airlines Cessna 180 was in  the water ten minutes before he was  rescued by the crew of the yacht Balihai.  25 YEARS AGO  Ad: SKINNY GIRLS! Gain 5 to 10  pounds. Round out bony limbs.

Peterson  Musings  John Burnside  Slings 8e Arrows  George Matthews  My friend Corrance has just  returned to action after a week  communing with nature on a  canoe trip on Sakinaw Lake. He  chose of course, after working  through a sweltering summer, a  week when the skies opened and  the rains came. Apparently they  can fall quite heavily on Sakinaw  Lake.  It all took me back twenty  years to my first canoe trip. I  wonder if anyone now remembers  the CBC TV series Radisson  which featured the larger than life  exploits of Pierre Radisson and  his brother-in-law Des Groseilles,  French Canadian voyageurs in  the seventeenth century. The  series featured tense fur negotiations with Indians and high level ���  diplomacy with the governments!  of France and England, lashings  of adventure and, ofcourse^ many  shots of the intrepid Radishes and  Gooseberries, as their names  translate, setting forth with  resolute faces in their ever-trusty  canoes.  As a young Scots romantic in  his teens I thought it all great  stuff.   It was the kind of Canada  I'd read about.   How Canadians  consider their history dull with  that kind of stuff in their background  has  always   been   more  than I could understand.   In any  case,  fired  by  the   example   ol  Radisson and his partner, a friend  called Walter Garrett and myself  decided   that   we   would   go   a-  canoeing.   Neither one of us had  ever been in a canoe before but  we planned a circular one hundred and thirty mile trip in the  Lake Temagami district in Northern Ontario. The trip was chosen  for the fact that it would not be  necessary to repeat any portion  of it to get back to the starting  place and also for the fact that in  the hundred and thirty miles of  lake and river there was only a  of lake and river there were only a  couple of portages.  The trip was planned for the  last two weeks in August and the  week before we were to take off  we went up to a Y.M.C.A. camp  in the Laurentians just north of  Montreal to familiarize ourselves  with the canoe.  Whatever Radis-  son-like   pretensions   I   enjoyed  were quickly squelched.    There  was a wind on the lake and some  waves and, as a devout coward  and a non-swimmer at the time,  I was absolutely horrified at the  skittish   behaviour   of  unloaded  canoes.   In fact just five minutes  after getting into the canoe we  were out of it again in the middle  of the lake.   I don't know what  happened. We twitched when we  should have  watched  or  something   and   suddenly   the   lake  waters   were   closing   over   my  head. I came up again and grabbed the canoe and learned  my  first major lesson  - don't grab  the middle of a submerged canoe  if you're looking for any kind of  stability or support.    The thing  rolled over like a ball in the water  and  I was going  under again.  Eventually, grown weary of the  repeated dunkings, I worked my  way to the end of the canoe and  we were rescued.  It dampened my ardour for the  voyageur's life and.for the rest  of the weekend I would have  nothing further to do with canoes  but we had announced our intentions too clearly among our  friends and workmates and despite my trepidation the next  weekend saw me aboard a C.N.R.  train heading for Northern Ontario and Lake Temagami.  From whatever whistle-stop  we got off the train at, our route  led by lake ferry to an island  called Bear Island which had a  Hudsons Bay store and was in  the business of outfitting for  canoe trips. It was a glorious  late summer afternoon when we  loaded the canoe and set off up  Lake Temagami. I was somewhat  heartened by the fact that heavily  loaded canoes are much more  stable than. the empty one that  tent to find that we had chose as  a camp a natural declivity which  was acting as a catch basin for  a good portion of the water that  was falling on the island and we  huddled shivering and miserable  together taking turns in the one  partially dry sleeping bag and  feeling very inept, very foolish  and very, very unhappy.  The rains stopped early that  morning, it was a Sunday, but  the winds did not. They blew as  though they would never stop  again and the white-caps rolled  and danced around our island  and we were marooned three  miles from our starting point.  We came to know that tiny island  very.well .indeed, since. it  was  had.', thrown, us   out .the:. week^ Wednesday afternoon ,before;.we  before, and it was with consider  able optimism that we  paddled  up the lake towards adventure.  I have had occasion before to  mention how drastically the  weather.can change in Eastern  Canada in the summertime and  as was the case a couple of years  later when the roof blew off my  Morris Minor convertible before  I had got off Montreal Island  enroute to Toronto, there was a  dramatic and violent weather  change at the very beginning of  the canoe trip. We left Bear  Island with a sultry stillness lying  over the great lake of which it is  said that if the shore line were  stretched into a straight line it  would more than reach from Halifax to Vancouver. A typically  unknown piece of Canadian  vastness. Three miles up the  lake and less than an hour later  we were caught in the middle of  a sudden thunder storm with  rain pelting unimaginably down  and the wind gusting the lake  waters into angry white caps.  Resolute  lads  that  we   were,  we made camp on the first island  we came to and prepared to wait  it out. Inexperience is a great,  if cruel, teacher and we learned  a great deal that night about  setting up tents in a rain storm.  We awoke in the middle of a  howling night with rain machine-  gunning   against   our   saturated  couldvput  canoe 'inr water  and  proceed with our journey.  Resilient with youth, our  spirits rose quickly once we were  again making progress and putting a few more miles between  ourselves and our starting point.  It was while I was unpacking  the canoe after we had arrived at  a dry sandy point of land which  had enough breeze to keep the  mosquitoes at bay and the promise of comfortable rest, that I  noticed my wallet was nowhere  aboard. It contained all our  money and our return rail tickets.  It had to be on that cursed  island. There was nothing for  it but to go back and so it was  that five days after embarking on  our great canoe trip we were  back within three miles of the  starting point. We found the  wallet and, to our credit, I think,  didn't even discuss giving up  the trip.  In the next two or three days  we were to learn by harsh experience some ofthe major don'ts  of canoeing and were to cause a  look of the purest contempt and  disgust I have ever seen to pass  across the face of one of the  natives of the area. In the  seventy-two hours which followed  our inglorious return to the island  of imprisonment we got lost,  went hungry, over-ate and disgraced ourselves. I'll tell you a  bit about it next week.  in the highlands  In the highlands, in the country places.  Where the old plain men have rosy faces.  And the young fair maidens  Quiet eyes;  Where essential silence chills and blesses.  And for ever in the hill-recesses  Her more lovely music  Broods and dies���  O to mount again where erst I haunted;  Where the old red hills are bird-enchanted.  And the low green meadows  Bright with sward;  And when even dies, the million-tinted,  And the night has come, and planets glinted,  Low, the valley hollow  Lamp-bestarred!  O to dream, O to awake and wander  There, and with delight to take and render,  Through the trace of silence,  Quiet breath!  Lo! for there, among the flowers and grasses,  Only the mightier movements sounds and passes;  Only winds and rivers,  Life and death.      -     Robert Louis Stevenson  Thought I'd devote this whole  space to the PNE this week but  after my traditional twelve hour  trudge through the ��� barns,  begonias and batik exhibits I  don't think I'll bother. I've been  going to the thing for thirty  years and it's become more a  customary piigramage than a  particular enjoyment, sor,t of  like visiting Mecca or Lourds.  1 again managed to avoid my  children's pleas to go on any  scary rides, rather skillfully I  thought, this year it was a bad  back, last year a bad knee and  the year before a splitting headache. They're old enough to  see through me now and they are  resigned to the truth; their father  is a snivelling coward on the fair  grounds. To be peirfectly honest  I had a lot more fun at the Sea  Cavalcade. In terms of what  these festivals are supposed to be  the Sea Cavalcade is a better  event than the Exhibition. The  people involved are known to  most of us and anybody who feels  able can participate in competing,  showing off or just plain making  fools of themselves to their  heart's content.  While in town I had a brief  conversation with my niece who's  going into Grade 12. Laurie's  a really fine young woman,  strong, healthy, intellegent,  good looking and a great personality. She's a real go-getter  too; she's well organized, determined and efficient and normally  the very picture of confidence.  During the past two or three days  however she had been going  down to her school to get some  advice from her teachers and  counsellor on what courses she  should take and what kind of  career she should be planning  for herself and by the time I  talked with her she was a quivering mass of helpless confusion.  I'd heard the story a hundred  times and as a teacher I knew too  that I had been guilty of the same  stupid adherence to dogma.  Laurie made the mistake one  time of confiding in her teacher  that she wouldn't mind being a  legal secretary when she finished  school.  "Don't sell yourself short,"  he replied pompously and predictably, thereby condemning  that entire honourable occupation  to the human scrapyard, "You  should think about being a lawyer."  My poor niece, who would  have made a damn good legal  secretary, was being told by this  wise old educator that legal  secretaries ranked, at least on  his status scale, somewhere  between indigents and soup-  liners. Now Laurie is an active  girl, she likes to organize things,  join things, she likes to work out,  she likes to travel and she really  enjoys company. If she was to  work towards a career as a lawyer  she would have two or three years  of lonely boarding houses, undergraduate stacks and long tedious  evenings reading books before  she was even admitted into the  Law faculty, then another two or  three years of precedents, moot  courts and statutes before she  could look forward to a meagre  salary while she apprenticed  with a law firm.   Her swimming,  dancing, socializing, organizing,  joining and travelling would have  to be forgotten for a long, long  time.  Laurie is not the academic  type and law is the very essence  of academics. It is tough enough  to get to be a lawyer with all  the patience intellegerice and  stamina that that profession requires without trying to do it  without any of those largely  natural abilities. What she  lacked in the natural skills she  would have to make up in time  and hard study with all of the  terrible frustration and hardship that that requires.  I don't know how many times  I've heard the enthusiastic  mechanic told he should go in  for engineering, the nurse for  doctoring.'' the '��� draftsman'5' for  architecture, the athlete 'for  physical education and so on.  It's tough enough for a teenager  to decide what to do with his  life without somebody who really  doesn't have to live that life  telling him that the things he'd  like to do aren't worth the trouble.  Parents are just as guilty of  this kind of interference as  teachers but teachers are in a  peculiarly influential position at  a critical time in a young person's  life. All teachers have gone to  university and that fact often  gives us a bias towards that kind  of education. It's hard to give  the proper kind of encouragement and support to the kids who  have aspirations other than those  involving formal education.  There is an inclination sometimes  to equate academics with intelle-  gence when in fact some of the  most intellegent people are  lousy academics. Take for  example the kid who really wants  to become a logger. In the first  place the kid would probably  never admit the fact around  school knowing the kind of response he would be likely to get.  To most academically trained  people, logging is not a high  aspiration but you'll never meet a  stupid logger and the only ones  you'll hear about are dead or  fired.  There's dignity in all work and  no matter what a kid wants to do  with his life we should be helping  him to become the best one of  those he can possibly instead  of denigrating his ambitions or  encouraging him into something  that he wouldn't like or wouldn't  be good at. I don't mean to say  that we should not be telling  kids that their reach should exceed their grasp and all that sort  of thing but it doesn't do much  for someone's confidence when  he tells you what he wants to do  with his life and you turn around  and tell him that it's beneath  him and he really should be doing  something else.  Sometimes, like in my niece's  experience, a kid gets so much  advice and so much pressure on  deciding on a suitable career  that he ends up so confused he  forgets what it was that he really  wanted to do in the first place.  Contrary to popular opinion,  being a teacher is no piece of  cake, and every so often I'm  reminded of the lifesaving fact",  that you only have to be young  once.  4  s  S \l  Coast News, Septembers, 1977.  muAtaE  To >)qtc    o^ housing   Str^p^ds   bitu.

Two others and 1 went to the  Regional District's Public Utilities meeting and asked the board  to approach the lower Granthams  Water District to see if they  would join our group in the proposed plan to supply water for  the Cemetery, Reed, North,  Chamberlain Roads and Upper  . Granthams.  Your.trustees did not approach ���  the Regional District first nor is  the Regional District trying to  steal your water system. They  are only trying . to improve it,  which is what you will have to  do if they don't take it over anyway.  Having read some of the letters  to the Editor which mention  that Mr. Mulligan and Mr.  Dixon were lying and Bernie  Mulligan was verbally sabotaging  your system, I feel these comments are unfair.  In Mrs. J. Park's letter to the  Editor of August 30, 1977 she  mentioned the work that had to  be done for the proposed 25,000  gal. tank and upgrading their  existing water pipes over the  next year or two. This indicates  their present system is not  adequate. It shows that Mr.  Mulligan and Mr. Dixon were  trying to tell you the truth.  It also appeared in some of  the letters that the board was  interrupted when trying to tell  you the truth. Why?  The reason the .board was not  at your first meeting to explain  the details of the plan was that  they were  not invited by your  trustees. Your trustees wanted  to leave the matter entirely up  to you people to decide. I believe  that your trustees had all the  information required regarding  the take over of your sytem.  A question you should ask  yourself is, if you don't want the  Regional District, whether it is  the cost or whatever the reason  may be, will you bother to spend  anymore money to replace your  old pipes to improve your fire  protection etc.?  If you have trouble making up  your mind which way to vote take  a look at your children behind  you and decide with, them in  mind.  The extra few dollars it will  cost you today may save them  hundreds of dollars later.  When-you vote, don't vote on  what you had yesterday or what  you have today. Vote for what  you think you will need tomorrow.

September 8, 9, 10.  ������������������������ 4.  Coast News, September 6,1977.  * ���mhbkt Ellingham 's     I  THE YESTERDAY DOOR  1960 was difinitely not one of  my better years. Financial and  other pressures had compelled  me to leave the Art School and  my fortunes were on a definite  downward spiral. They had led  me by the end of the year, to a  housekeeping-room in a middling-scruffy rooming-house near  English Bay. There were a number of odd stories connected with  this house but perhaps the oddest  involves a.second building, several doors away.  I did most of my sketchy  grocery-shopping at a small store  on the corner, run by a Chinese  lady. I suppose my lack of affluence- was quite apparent and  one day, she asked me if I'd like  to pick up a little extra cash. 1  allowed as how I wouldn't mind  at all and she directed me to see  the lady in the old brown house  next door as she seemingly  needed some chores done. I  thanked the Chinese lady and  went to check out the lead.  I rang the bell and waited.  After a long time I heard shuffling  footsteps, the door opened and  a very small, very aged lady  peered suspiciously at me. She  was pinched and puckered with  her years but the the eyes were  clear and full of a birdlike alertness. I stated my purpose and  she invited me in. As I crossed  the threshhold for the first time,  I felt a definite sense of time-  regression. Everything seemed  brown, the walls, the stairs, the  living-room furniture glimpsed  through a door, even the shapeless dress the old lady wore.  Nothing seemed to have changed  here since the Thirties or earlier  It was timeproof, a pocketful of  yesterday, the museum of her  life shared with brown ghosts.  Her name was Mrs. Pressford  and she hired me over a cup of  tea in her kitchen, a high-ceiling-  ed room whose cream-coloured  walls were like an island of  light in the pervasive brownness.  My chores were simple enough.  I was to come by every week or  so to cut her lawn with a hand-  mower, clean the windows and  split wood in the basement for  her furnace. It wasn't much of  a job but I was in no position' to  be picky. In my financial straits,  any contribution was welcome,  however small.  Page s  from a Li fe-Log  Peter Trower  It was not until my second visit  that I met Mrs. Pressford's  daughter, Blanche, who shared  the house with her. She was the  oldest of several daughters and  the only spinster, a somewhat  bitter woman in her late sixties,  newly-retired from a lifetime  secretarial job and I suppose,  dourly contemplating a lonely  old age. There was a desperate  edge to her. Blanche treated me  civilly enough but she and her  mother wrangled constantly.  From what I could piece together,  the old woman was held responsible for breaking up some long-  ago romance that might have  resulted in marriage. They  seemed to actively dislike each  other but they were bound together by a common loneliness.  At first I moved only through  the bare periphery of their lives,  showing up on cue like an overage  little boy to perform my  little-  boy tasks.    Sometimes, splitting  wood in that dim, spiderwebbed  basement where  her  long-dead  husband's  tools  still  hung   like  dusty   exhibits,   I   became   dis-  .located  in  time  and  space.     I  felt, in my mind at least, more  thirteen than thirty.    But I was  not to know the full strangeness  of the place until I actually stayed  there.     Blanche had  for  some  years been in the habit of going  to Las Vegas for a month each  winter to play the slot-machines.  Generally,    one    of   the    other  daughters took care of the old  lady on these occasions but this  year,  they  were  apparently   all  busy. As a result, Blanche asked  me if I'd stay in the house during  her absence and make sure Mrs.  Pressford  didn't fall   down   the  stairs    or   otherwise    come    to  grief.    I was only  required to  sleep  there   and   for   this,   she  offered me a  dollar  per  night  plus breakfast.    It wasn't much  but I had nothing to lose.  Blanche flew south and I  moved in. It was a strange sen-'  sation. The shadowy house and  its varnished brown memories  engulfed me utterly for the first .  time. I was given a small room  on the second floor that seemed  ���tiM-BR-MARtCT  MEMBER BLU-I  never to belong to anyone. It  had the peculiar anonymity of a  cheap hotel room although clean  and comfortable enough. My  initial night was not without  consideration for ghosts. When I  clicked off the light, the darkness  and silence flowed in like black  water. Several times in the  night, I came nervously awake to  moaning sounds but it was only  Mrs. Pressford at the end of the  hall become a small girl again  in her dreams.  After a couple of vaguely-  apprehensive nights, I adjusted  to the dusty tempo of the house  and slept soundly. Each morning, Mrs. Pressford would prepare my breakfast. The menu  never varied - two boiled eggs,  two slices of toast, jam and tea.  I was content enough with it.  She seldom ate herself but took  tea with me and sometimes told  stories of her youth. She had  once studied to be a concert  pianist but had given it up for  marriage. There was still an upright piano in the living-room but  she told me sadly that she had  lost her touch. After breakfast,  unless it were chore-day, she  would hand me a dollar and send  me about my business. Sometimes I'd return to my rooming-  house, to try and write. More  often, I'd head up to Granville  Street and hang about the bars  with the rest of the ten-cent  philosophers. How Mrs. Pressford spent her day, I had little  idea.  There were always one or two  cases of beer in the house;   The  old lady was supposed to have  a couple  of bottles  a  day  for  medicinal purposes but no more.  She was  on  a  sort  of honour-  system in this regard and generally kept to her quota.     One  chilly evening, I returned to the  house  early.     The   living-room  did contain one item that jarred  with  the  Thirties'   atmosphere.  This was a portable television-  set that Blanche had received on  her retirement and I was planning  to watch it for a couple of hours.  As I came up the front steps,  I was startled to hear the piano  being played in anything but a  tentative fashion.  Great, rolling,  authoritative   chords   resounded  through the echo-chamber of the  house.   Quietly, I let myself in.  Mrs. Pressford sat at the upright  with her back to me, her arthritic  ringers moving with magic certainty   over  the   keyboard.      It  was quite foreign to her usual  behaviour and I had little doubt  as to its inspiration. Sneaking  through the kitchen, I found six  empty bottles. My God, she'd  gone on a bender! How were  you supposed to deal with a drunk  ninety-four-year-old woman? I  simply sat in the kitchen and  let her play. It was an amazing  performance. She must have  played herself sober. When it  was over, she simply closed the  lid and shuffled away to bed. I  doubt if she even realized I was  there.  Mrs. Pressford was generally  an amenable woman and treated  me with   considerable  kindness  but she had her bad days.   One  morning, I came downstairs  to  find her already up and abusively  irrational.    She had mislaid her  gold wristwatch and was certain  I had stolen it.   Despite my denials she continued to harangue  me.   I had a hangover and was  feeling none too reasonable myself. Finally, she ordered me out  of the house and I said I'd be  only too happy to go.   I phoned  her other daughters, told them I  couldn't cope with her and stormed off to my rooming-house in  a huff.    Some hours later, both  daughters came over and asked  me if I'd reconsider.  Mrs. Pressford had found her watch and was  very sorry about the whole thing.  I felt bad about it too so I returned with them.    Mrs. Pressford   was  like   a   contrite   child  and from that point until Blanche  returned, we got along famously.  For some time after,  I  continued to do their chores.   Then  I move'd from the neighbourhood  and   lost  track  of them.      But  sometimes I think of that strange  house where I walked into yesterday through a brown door and  almost became a boy again.

Comedy is king this week at  the Twilight' Theatre with both  features designed to ease the  pain of. the end of summer with  laughter, the world's oldest  antidote for gloom.  Thursday through Saturday,  September 8 - 10, the Walt  Disney studios' give us another  of their comedies designed for  the whole family with the tech-  nicholour production of Boat-  nicks. The film is based on a  story by Marty Roth and stars  Canada's own Robert Morse  along with Stefanie Powers and  Phil Silvers. Wally Cox is also  seen in a featured role.  The second offering of the  week is Car Wash which is also  recommended for all  ages  but  under parental guidance.    It  is  concerned   with   life   in   a   Los  Angeles car wash.   The humour  is   high   pitched,   often   vulgar,  but funny enough  to appeal  to  large  masses   of  people.      The-  producers. Art Linson and Gary  Stromberg, have kept the soundtrack at perpetual full blast with  a constant stream of rock tunes,  thereby establishing a rhythm to  suit  the   action   and   enhancing  the film's appeal in youth  markets.   Richard Pryor, the Pointer  Sisters, George Carlin, Professor  Irwin Corey, and Jack Kehoe are  .among  the  entertaining  performers in the cast.    This comedy  is also presented in Technicolour  and   will   run   at   the   Twilight  Theatre Sunday through Wednesday, September 11-14.

I want to kill him,  at least hit him over the head  with my purse. What do you  suggest?  Steaming  Dear Steaming:  Hit him over the head with  your purse and run - never  looking back. Rid yourself of  the type of person that is so rude  and inconsiderate that they don't  even try to make you feel good  or try to make you like them.  This type of person, man or  woman, that keeps their partner  feeling ignored and unappreciated is being deliberately insulting  and is not worth the tirhe it  takes to get a taxi home. There is  no happiness to be found in  their company. With billions of  people on this earth, look further.  Dear Ann:  I live in an area that is very  treed, the people living around  were interested in the birds and  animals, conservation was important. Lately the bulldozing  and logging has been incessant.  They had to stop for the hot days  at the end of last month, because  of fire danger. Now they are at  it again from 8 o'clock in the  morning grunting and groaning  and burning. The angry bulldozers digging away at my peace  and tranquillity, ruining the  summer I had looked forward to  for a long winter. Is this legal  in a residential section? One of  the   neighbours   had   a   heart  attack and had to try and recover in this bedlam. I feel outraged !

Politics in the Off Season     - his opponents. He sits, surroun  ded by the cronies of his cabinet -  Wolfe, Mair, Gardom and Co.,  and they laugh nervously when he  makes a joke. One suspects that  it is a good idea to laugh when  the premier makes a joke.  The rest of the Social Credit  side stretches down the assembly  hall like a large cat, trying to  go to sleep. Vander Zalm,  looking handsome in a malevolent  sort of way, chews gum with a  determination that would put a  teenage girl to shame. Calder,  from Atlin, is large and bulbous.  He sits in his chair as if he'd  come to rest forever. Mussallem  from Dewdney, a mouselike little  fellow, looks like he got thrown  in the wash with his suit, and  that it was sanforized, and he  wasn't. Pat Jordan is clearly the  Ann Landers of the place, and  you can almost smell the iron  filings in her hairspray. Mair  bubbles like a pudgy kid in a  candy store, Rogers seems always  to be refining something, and  Kerster takes notes as if he were  writing out an order for spare  parts for a fifty-seven Plymouth.  Over on the opposition side,  things are a little better. Ms.  Brown and Mr. Barnes sit together, the black folk at the back  of the bus. Scott Wallace and  Gary Lauk flank Gordon Gibson,  who resembles the epitome of a  healthy private school lad gone  a bit berserk on expensive drink.  Dave Barrett, in his blazer with  maple leaf extant, looks a bit  tired. He's seen a bit too much  of this, perhaps, and besides,  it must be galling to look over at  Bennett, who is running the  province the way a demented  adolescent would drive a Ferrari.  With a cast like this, the action  is not all it might be. The rhythm  of the proceedings is a lot like a  baseball game - long periods of  boredom interspersed with hot  drama. Extremely dull speeches  are often made from both sides  of the house, but these are often  'punctuated by nasty comments  from the other side. "Burp,  burp, burp," Mr. Barrett can be  heard to say while the premier is  speaking. Or Mr. Lea might  opine: "He's another one who  thought he was joining a bicycle  club, and got into a motorcycle  gang." Or Gary Lauk might  refer to Dr. McGeer as "the  Cardinal Richelieu of the ICBC.''  The wit, or what there is of it,  It's Victoria in late August,  and it's raining steadily. Out in  the streets the tourists collect in  tight little knots, cursing their  fate, trying to scrape the organic  matter from the horse-drawn  sight-seeing tours off the bottoms  bf their shoes, staring idly at  shop windows that sell retread  tartans, dubious Indian sweaters,  and other manifestations of an  empire on which the sun has set.  The joy, one senses, has gone  out of tine magic fingers vibrating  beds in their motel rooms, and  until the boat comes to take  them away, there isn't a great  deal to do.  It is at this low ebb in their  travelling fortunes that" many  visitors to the provincial capital  discover one of the finest tourist  attractions we have to offer -  'the Provincial Legislature. It's  ���the best show in town, it's free,  ���and like many of the people who  come to see it, the actors themselves are for the most part  tourists. And they're not too  "happy about being in Victoria this  summer either. Summer sessions  'are about as popular with our  MLA's as starch in one's under-  things, or two free tickets to see  -Anne Murray on a double bill  'with Alice Copper. So there is a  -lot of grumbling going on in down  -town Victoria. Fifty-four of these  grumblers are being paid to be  here, however, and although  they're not very happy, at least  they get a cheque at the end of  the month to prove that they're  not completely mad.  The show starts at two in the  afternoon.     After you've  wandered through the marble halls,  and stared up at the murals de-  ipicting things like Industry and  .���Commercial Zeal, you can usually  get a seat up in the galleries  above the assembly.   At two, on  4he dot, the Sgt. At Arms bawls  out:   "Make way for Mr. Speaker!" and in comes a man in a  itr_TCornered;; ;hat,-4 followed,  by  .three -clerks, and the Sgt. himself, carrying the gold mace of  government.  The members then  ��� straggle   in,    looking   like    ill-natured kids whose recess has  -been cut short.  They bow to the  .speaker, and sink into the comfortable leather chairs that line  -the two sides of the house.  -    It's a bit unnerving to notice .  -that there are so many  Social  Credit members  that  some  of  -;them have to sit on the opposition  "side of the house, and it's also  somewhat unsettling to see real  --live politicians in the flesh.   Pre-  'mier Bennett; for example, looks  ijust like he does on television.  -In   his   nifty   blue   blazer   and  matching slacks, he has the air  of a small boy whose father has  just taken him out for a haircut.  :He's the Ed Sullivan ofthe place,  ���'���standing stiffly, one hand stuck  in his trousers pocket, the other  'gesturing with the  thumb   and  forefinger stuck together. v Bennett is clearly hot at ease in this  'place.     The   slightest  heckling  ;from the other side throws him  ���'right off, and to keep some sort  ���of order to his thoughts he ad-  dresses either the  speaker,   or  looks down at the other end of  the house; afraid to look over at  by Maryanne west  Canadian actor, Don Harron,  the new host of Morningside,  weekdays 9:13 - noon, says he  welcomes the opportunity to  leave his alter-ego Charlie Far-  quharson at home and just be  himself.

The Socreds must be the highest  paid straight men in our society.  It soon becomes clear to even the  most disinterested observer that  the government pf our day is  not going to win any prizes for  personality, or imagination. In  fact, if anything, the house turns  around Wallace, Gibson and  Lauk. They're the bright young  men in the place (although Gibson speaks as if he's always,  fondling a plane ticket to Ottawa  in his pocket) and if, by?s6lmeN#f6VGibsbnr  incredible . chance,   they X were    your lunch?"  given  the  power  to   rule   this  province,   something  might   actually get done.  As it is, there's not too much  hope. During the session I  attended a used car dealer's  licensing bill (a subject close to  the hearts and fenders of more  than one Socred member) was  put through, but that was about  it. There is an air in the place  that is a lot like a private club,  and it seems to have little to do  with the actual people of this  province. It. was also during  this sitting that Gordon Gibson  came in with a large box, containing a petition to save the  Vancouver Resources Board. It  had 27,000 signatures on it, but  the most meaningful comment  the government side could make  about it was a poor joke. One  Socred backbencher called out  "What's in there,  It's down to the off-season  rates in Victoria these days,  but the politicians are still hanging in there. It's the best show in  town.

And Dr. Viktor Frankl has won  respect around the world. He is  to psychiatry today what Freud  and Jung used to be; from the  horror of his experiences in  Nazi extermination camps, he  developed a new school of psychiatry called Logotherapy,  based on each person's need to  find meaning in life.  . But recently Dr. Frankl stated,  in Toronto, that the world is  getting worse, not better.  "In former times," he said,  "all our activity was based on  optimism...that there is something like automatic progress,  and that all the evils will sooner  or later be done a\vay with. But  this has now been shown to be  a complete illusion. There is no  automatic progress but rather an  automatic regression in which  things keep getting worse."  He suggests that only pessimism - realistic awareness of how  bad the world is - offers a creative  minority the will to fight on.  That's a Biblical and theological  concept too - Abrahamic minorities who persevere with the truth  while society self-destructs.  Today, the news seems to  justify pessimism.   Dictators like  Idi Amin seize headlines and  hostages, while British democracy (according to conservative  economist Milton Friedman) has  a 50-50 chance of being dead in  five years.  But the news now includes  many things it used to ignore.  War massacres like My Lai  have happened before. But no  one cared about them. Now  they get reported, arid for the  first time a people repudiated  their own armies.  Political dirty tricks were  around before Watergate. But  this time, a nation'ts moral indignation forced a president to  resign. When Biafrans were  starving a few years ago, people  all over the world helped them.  A century earlier when the Irish  were    starving,    neither    their  government in Westminster nor  their neighbour in England  bothered caring.  Greece and Spain have both  moved from dictatorships to free  elections recently. And while  China and- much of Africa and  Asia may not practice Canadian-  style democracy, at least their  people can now have more influence on national policy than  they could under their tyrannical  warlords of former centuries.  Maybe the world isn't perfect, Dr. Frankl. But it's not as  cruel and callous as it used to  be. And more people than ever  before know what's going on - in  Canada and elsewhere - and care  about it, and are trying to improve it.  Surely that's grounds for optimism , not pessimism.  ^J%����frL*)H  Freethinker's Pulpit  The parking lot of the Gibsons Legion has finally been paved, but not without mishap.

Bolt - Lever  Single Shot & Semi-Auto  by Andy Randall  Do I have a church? Oh yes.  It is the Catholic Church. But  not the one you are thinking of.  Oh no! You see, Catholic, really  means universal. So like my pals  on the Alberta cattle ranges I  worship in The Round Temple'  with the blue sky for my heaven,  and the Devil can't get in the  corners. It's like this: - 'At the  Muezzin's call for prayer, The  kneeling faithful thronged the  square, And on Puskara's lofty  Height- The dark priest chanted  Brahma's might. Amid a monastery's weeds- An old Franciscan  told his beads, While to the  Synagogue there came- A Jew,  to praise Jehovah's name. The  one great God looked down and  smiled- And counted each His  loving child; For Turk and  Brahmin, monk and Jew- Had  reached Him through the gods  they knew.'  It's a humbling thought that  we are all of that Universal  Church that favours no prescribed creed or manner of worship. As the Scot might say,  "We are all Jamie Thomson's  bairns."

RD.  GIBSONS, B.C.  886-2200  this would be a better world to  live in if more humanizing were  done rather than religio-ising.  And after all, is it not that the  true Christian message that no  other religion can find fault  with, and which is exactly the  content of Christ's last message,  or command, "That ye love one  another."  Perhaps these few of the  church who label others as  humanists are giving a gold-seal  trophy away unwittingly. Here  is a "Humanist" story for you  to take as your dessert after your  favourite scripture reading:  A five year old laddie in Britain  lost his pet, goldfish so he wrote  a card to God. "Dear God, my  goldfish died. Can you please  give me another? I miss him  so."  It two days a new water-tank,  and with it a lovely goldfish was  delivered by two mailmen. The  mail-people at the local post-  office were touched by the wee  lad's request to God, and they  thought it best to help in God's  work. After all, they thought,  he was a bit young to understand that God sometimes moves  in mysterious ways. Can I rub  it in? 'A little touch of humanity  makes the whole world kin'. Pit  up yere deukes ye rigidly righteous!  Now let's face it. We have put  up with your ranting, , bible-  thumping ways long enough.  With loads of humour, tolerance,  and maybe a wee bit love for  one another we can work in harness and be broadminded,  smiling, and the Christians He  meant us to be. Take down your  nameplates, your banners; close  your shop on those taboos, arid  the worshipping of fetishes, or  doctrines, or whatever makes  for an invisible wall against  freethou'ght and communication  one with another. Let the young  give us a renewal of life in all  its best forms.  We hear of the exchanging of  ministers, that is a situation in  which two ministers will switch  churches on occasional Sundays.  But I know of young couples  who visit other denominational  churches. Now that is a good  idea, and one that could broaden  the outlook on others if they  would just try warming other  pews once in a while. Or perhaps  better still, why not try out the  first ever way of meeting together; in houses? There is no  better way to rid religion of  formality.  Harmony Hall Happenings  by Jim Holt  Man O Man did we ever have a  wonderful trip to the   PNE on  August 31st. It was just fabulous,  what with the Jim Nabors Show,  the   dinner  on   top   of   Grouse  Mountain at the Grouse's Nest,  the ride on the gondola plus the  ferry   and   bus   trip,    whoever  missed it sure lost out on a wonderful bargain.    Thanks to our  hard working Travel  Co-ordinator, Vi Lynds who did a great job  in    getting    things    organized,  working in conjunction with Mr.  Ben   of   Continental   Travel   in  Sechelt.      Everything   went  off  perfectly.    So I raise my hat to  Vi for the wonderful job she did  and I know that all our members  truly   appreciated   her   efforts.  There   were   101   on   the   trip,  mostly from Gibsons, a few from  Roberts Creek and Sechelt and  other points.  I think our members are beginning to realize what these  trips mean, the congeniality of  everyone was well established on  this trip and I am sure it will lead  to better relationships in time to  come. To get back to the PNE  and the Jim Nabors show, it was  just fantastic. As you are all  aware he is a wonderful entertainer and I am sure that everyone will agree with me when I  say that if the price of admission  was twice as much it would have  been well worth it. He has a  beautiful voice with feeling in it.  The song I myself really enjoyed  was when he sang "This is my  Quest". Oh boy, how he belted  that one out! Also I thoroughly  enjoyed it when he went into his  "Gomer Pyle" stunts. From the  show we had a couple of hours to  browse around the grounds,  and from there back to the bus to  take us up Grouse Mountain.  You'don't realize how lucky  you are to be living in Gibsons,  when you get to the top of the  mountain and look down on Vancouver and see that smoke and  haze laying over it, and see that  concrete jungle in the West End,  they can have all that for me.  I am glad to be living up here  where you can at least get a  breath of fresh air and not be  fighting heavy traffic all the time.  Now to get to the dinner at  the Grouse's Nest it was a real  gourmet meal and I would like  to extend if I may for all the  Pioneers from Gibsons, my personal thanks to the chef and staff  for the wonderful meal and hos-  .ORi  VCIES  96  FLORON    Box238  AGENCIES LTD.

Eventually  we   had   to  come  back   down   the   mountain   and  board the bus for the ferry and  end a really enjoyable day.   We  all came home tired but happy  and I sincerely hope that these  bus trips keep up as it brings us  closer together.  We get to know  each  other better,   and   this   is  what makes life worth living and  I honestly believe that if we have  more  trips  like  this,   Harmony  Branch #38 will be the highlight  of the Sunshine Coast.  So how about it folks, get behind your Travel Co-ordinator,  help her out all you can in any  way and help take the load off  Vi's-shoulders. She is doing a  fabulous job so lets help her out  and she will, I am sure, appreciate any help she can get. I  would also like to thank Mr.  Ben for his untiring efforts to  make our trip the success that  it was, also the congenial bus  driver that we had, I only got the  name of one of them, that was  Jamie, "the man with the million  dollar smile". Thanks again  gentlemen for your kindness and  consideration.  As I said in my previous letter  we are planning a trip to Bellingham in late September and  naturally we are going by Continental, this will all be discussed  at our general meeting on September 12th, so I ask you to  please come to the meeting as  we won't have very much time  to make the travel arrangements  and as I have said many times  before it is a matter of first come,  first served. This trip is going to  be partly subsidized by the  Branch, I don't know for how  much but it will be a bargain for  anyone wishing to go. So let's  make up a bus load for sure and  maybe two if we get enough to  go, it is for Harmony Branch  members only so let's get cracking on this and meet the members  who do not attend regularly and  try and convince them of what  they are missing.  Now that I have got that off  my chest, I would like to thank  the owner and his wife of the  Gibsons Lanes bowling alley for  their contribution of plastic cup  holders. It was a wonderful  gesture on your part and is  greatly appreciated by yours  truly. Also to Mr. Jim Frye of  Gibsons Harbour Business  Association for the donation of  a cheque for $87.25 which he  says is profits from the Sea  Cavalcade Bingo concession  which they operated. This is  truly community spirit and greatly appreciated by myself and all  others concerned. On behalf of  the members of Harmony Branch  #38 O.A.P.O. I thank you for  your wonderful gesture and kind  comments and hope as you stated  that we, can continue to work  together  in   the  future,   and   I  hereby ask that as many of our  members as possible, please  support the members of the  Gibsons Harbour Business  Association, because they need  our support just as we need them.  I also wish to thank Bob Kelly  of Kelly's Garbage Disposal  for his time, labour and truck  for the transportation of chairs  and tables to Dougal Park. This  was greatly appreciated by myself and as the sign on Bob's  truck says, "A load on this truck  is a load off your mind". Bob,  thanks a milliion for a good job  well dbne.  I had a visit from a very good  friend this morning in the person  of Mr. Lloyd Scrimshaw who is .  the leader of the Sunshine Coast  Country Dancers and he asked me  to pass the following information  on to you.   It is connected with  square dancing which 1 am sure  most  of you   know   about,   but  this is a different kind, it is all  done by Senior Citizens and  is  called  "Heritage  Square Dance  Company Pageant".     I have  a  copy before me of the different  places in which they have performed and I assure you by the  comments from the various places  they have been it is a show well  worth seeing.     They have performed jn White Rock, Nanaimo.  Port    Moody,     Penticton     and  various other places too nurner-  ous to mention.    They make all  their own costumes and by the  pictures I have seen of them they  are simply gorgeous. The dances  date back to the   1400 era and  continue on  through the   1700,  1800 and 1900.  So if you wish a night of real  enjoyable square dancing, there  is to be a display of the Heritage  Square Dance Company Pageant  at Elphinstone High School gym  on October 1st, 7:30 to 9:30 p.m.  I have tickets for sale at a very  reasonable cost that I know  everyone can afford and these  will be on sale at our regular  meeting September 12th. I know  it will be a very pleasant evening  out.  Don't forget the regular meeting on September 12th as there is  quite a lot of business to discuss.  There will be an Executive  Meeting on Tuesday September  6th, all members of the executive  are requested to attend. Well. I  think this is all the news I have  for you at this time. Don't forget  Carpet Bowling starts up again  on September 7th and Thursday  night Bingo on September 15th.  Hope to see you all there. So  until our General Meeting and  Carpet Bowling I will say Adios  Amigos.  God wouldn't have  given us feet if he  didn't mean for us to  use them.  Walk.

Guiding offers girls from  age 7 years and up the opportunity to participate in camping,  crafts, outdoor recreation and  many other activities.  Hans this year include the  addition of Rangers for girls  14 years and up as well as the  Monday evening Guide Company  meetings for girls 10 years and  older. Two Brownie Packs meet  after school one day a week at  the Gibsons United Church Hall  and the Anglican Church Hall.  Girls 7 years and up are invited  to join.  The girls have been busy this  summer with camping activities  and the leaders have been busy  with training as well as we now  have three licensed camp leaders.  Six girls from the Sechelt Guide  Company joined with the Gibsons  Guides   to   enjoy   the   camping  Williams Color  facilities at Camp Olave recently.  Nadine Smethurst attended a  Calgary Outdoor Camp for one  week, while Barbara Nowoselski  attended the Olave Birthday  camp locally. Six Guides went  to Tsoona Camp at Chiliiwack,  Debbie Ajas, Deanna Cattanach,  Heather Cattanach, Shelly  Fyles, Lynn Nowoselski and  Yvonne Valencius.  The older Brownies went  camping for several days in July  and the 1st year Brownies are  attending Camp this month.  Brownie Leaders are needed  and anyone interested is urged  to contact Mrs. Gloria Fyles at  886-7714. A training session  will be held in the near future  for leaders.

Do you have any tips for  lowering our fat intake?  ANSWER: Total fat intake can  be reduced effectively by following four basic guidelines:  1. Choose lean cuts of meat,  trim off visible fat and discard  the fat that cooks out of meat.  2. Avoid fried foods and use  cooking methods that help to  reduce fat content such as baking,  broiling and boiling.  3. Decrease the amount of visible  fat incorporated into foods  (butter and margarine have  similar caloric contents, and while  the type of fat in these products  differ, it is more important to  consider the total quanity consumed.)  4. Select foods that are relatively  low in fat. Stress should be  placed on total reduction of high  fat foods rather than choice  between high fat foods.  QUESTION: My two year old  son does not like meat. What else  can I offer him and how much  does he need each day?  ANSWER: The Meat and Meat  Alternates group includes meat,  fish and poultry, eggs, peanut  butter and dried peas, beans  and lentils. Three or more small  servings daily are required by a  preschool child. A workable  guideline to follow is that one  tablespoon of food for each year  of life equals one serving.  <P^  The advertisers on these pages  are members of:  GIBSONS HARBOUR  BUSINESS ASSOCIATION  WEST  S  HJ75  DQ10 D  C SOUTH     CJ9  S  HA98  D83  C  But all was not lost.

I went for  a moonlight paddle and it made  me decide to run down to Madeira  Park,' dry out my bedding and  head back into the wilderness..  I over-nighted at a friend's  house and then headed out for  the wilds of Ruby Lake.  This time I found a great spot  in a small bay and set up house  again.  I have a recurring nightmare  about ghosts, haunted houses  and that type of thing.

Alfred Hitchcock couldn't have timed it  better, I went about six feet into  the air, luckily the tent was well  anchored down or I would probably have ended up wearing it.  Once I was together again I  started breakfast. Half way  through hotcakes a deer came out  on the beach just across the bay,  I slid the canoe into the water  and started sneaking up on it.  ' For some reason an empty canoe  doesn't have the same action as  a loaded one, as I found out when  I moved a little too far off centre.  After my pleasant if unexpected  swim I finished my breakfast.  The rain let up for the last  ���few days and I managed to get  around the lake quite a bit.  If there had been a bit more  sunshine I would have enjoyed  the trip even more, and not had  to use all my skills as a woodsman to the utmost.

Peter Hanke  Oar national dedication to  nuclear energy may bring the  greatest beginning or the final  bang to oar civilization; according  to whom we believe. In any  case, this ultimate enterprise  has now begun, and with more  than one bang already:  In 1966 a CANDU reactor is  sold to India. $85 million of the  cost are put up by Canadian  taxpayers. On May 18, 1974,  India explodes its first nuclear  bomb made from CANDU waste  materials.  In 1976 another CANDU is  sold to another unstable country,  South Korea, with $300 million  provided by Canadian taxpayers.  Later in 1976, a military coup  toppled the government in Argentina. Our federal government  immediately decreed its willingness to recognize the newcomers,  if they would only purchase one  CANDU. Our loss in that bargain is so far estimated to be at  least $180 million.  In November 1976, the Canadian Auditor General revealed  that there were vast blanks in  the accounting of the Atomic  Energy Commission. Apart  from the obvious and outright  losses, tens of millions were unaccounted for. We now know that  these millions were paid to encourage foreign government  officals to enter into the deals.  It was an ^ offer they couldn't  refuse.  A recent mock-commercial  of the CBC went vaguely like  thlst Wantedt Schoolchildren,  anywhere In the world, to accept  a free CANDU reactor, plus a  $20 million bribe delivered by  the mafia. Contact Ottawa,  Canada.  Until that day, our Prime  Minister Trudeau had dismissed  any concern about the program  with the affirmation that today  we just have to live dangerously,  and that the third world countries  desperately need and want our  Canadian reactor. To this day  he won't reveal where the money  went. Also, our politicians do  not want to hear the fact that all  of these countries could gain far  more from their solar heat  energy than any number of reactors could ever provide. But  then again, we are selling refrigerators to Eskimos too.  Well, lost are the millions,  and lost is a lot of faith in our  government. Gained is the  added threat of nuclear weapons  proliferation. Fred C. Ikle,  Director of the U. S. Arms Control and Disarmament Agency,  said it clearly: 'The time has  come when the so-called peaceful  nuclear technology provides  not only the means, but the  cover for new weapons programs."  But that isn't all. The CANDU  reactor produces twice as much  plutonium as its American counterpart. This plutonium, with  a half-life of 24,000 years, is a  radiological poison so toxic that  one pound could induce lung  cancer in everyone in the world.  And it is the stuff atomic bombs  are made of. The four nuclear  plants at Pickering, Ontario,  produce hundreds of pounds a  year, and 11 pounds are enough  to make a Hiroshima-sized bomb.  Hundreds of pounds have been  lost and stolen from reactors  around the world. At least  100,000 persons know how to  make an atomic bomb.  The governmentJs confidently  looking, ahead info a bright  future of increased CANDU  sales.  Has B.C. ordered yet?  Something has happened in  the dark chambers of Robert  Bonner, B.C. Hydro Chairman.  He is now preaching nuclear  energy for British Columbia.  Has pressure been brought to  bear on him? Has the sale been  completed already, in the fashion  of all the others?  While Bonner insists on a  fictitious annual growth rate of  energy demand of about nine  percent, in fact Canadians had  consumed less energy hi 1975  than in 1974. This trend may  well continue. The only way in  which B.C. Hydro could now  produce any significant growth  rate is through more quality-  incentives on energy consumption  than they have already. The  more you use, the less you pay.  This would, in turn, necessitate  more energy production. Can we  afford to carry on this game?  After all, any of the power  utilities' methods of extracting  energy are based on the irreversible destruction of our own environmental life-support system,  and on the consumption of finite  resources; through dams, coal  power plants, all of these.  Not so with nuclear power, so  they say. According to its supporters, it is safe, clean and  economical. And it creates jobs,  they say.  No Insorace  Let us see how safe it is. Considering that no insurance company wants to cover a nuclear  reactor, and that our own personal insurance policies completely' exclude any damages  caused by radiation, should we,  the public, be more trusting?  It has been conservatively estimated that a blow-up of a nuclear  plant could cause several 100,000  deaths. And our nuclear plants  are hardly being guarded at all.  Ontario Hydro engineers who  recently assessed the CANDU  system for Hydro said, "Canada's approach to nuclear power  has been less orderly and taken  larger risks than in the U. S. program." In 1974, the AECL tried  to keep under wraps the leak of  two tons, of heavy water worth  millions of dollars from the Pickering plant (said to be the safest  in the world). But the leak was  ' 'leaked'' to the press.  In a press conference, it was  admitted that "many worse  things have happened in Pickering's short, history....,massive  water spills, valve system failure's'  and continuous fueling problems.  Perhaps the most potentially  hazardous problem, which few  people are aware of, is the cracking of the zirconium sheaths  containing live uranium fuel."  These cracks have occurred in  over a hundred fuel rods. A  burst fuel sheath allows the release of highly radioactive fission  material into the outside environment, according to the radiation  protection bureau.  Disease and death from radiation are on a rapid increase within  large areas surrounding nuclear  plants. In view of a U. S. plan  that Canada should, In the future,  build a belt of about 150 refcetors  along Its border to supply the  U.S., the "permissible" doses of  radiation for Canadians has been  set at 100 times the permissible  level for U.S. citizens. Our children will get the plutonium to  deal with for the next 100,000  years - or as long as they are  around.  Clean energy?  Incalulable cost  Is it economical?

GIBSONS  Building Supplies  886-8141  factor, nor our income tax money,  then what do we stand to gain?  It has become an accepted fact  that "nuclear energy is now  mainly subsidized by fossil  fuels, and barely yields net  energy," says Dr. Odum.  AEC official: "Of course, I  would not be so unreasonable as  to say, It could never happen.  If there should be an accident,  we might lose a few 100,000  people. That chance we have to  take since we want the benefits."  Question: "Which benefits,  Sir?"  From its inception, a nuclear  plant takes eighteen years to  produce the first calorie of net  energy. By that time, ironically,  it may just about have exhausted  its "productive" capacity. This  looks like the cause of an energy  crisis, not the solution.  More than 60 percent of U.S.  reactor construction has been  closed down now. Sweden has  recently given up completely on  nuclear power. Ontario Hydro  has had astronomical losses from  its few nuclear plants, and of  course, consumers have to pay  the price now.  The cost of dismantling obsolete nuclear power plants has not  yet been calculated. And they do  become obsolete within 25 years.  The future will include also the .  .cost of "managing" and guarding  the long-lived, high-level wastes;  and the extra safey measures demanded by an angry public will  cost billions. The final abolition  of any civil rights and privacy  will be an inevitable by-product.  Director F. Pittman of the AEC  admits that "none of the suggested long term solutions for waste  disposal from nuclear plants are  technically or economically feasible today." All of the present  ��� disposal sites and containers,  the concrete boxes in the oceans,  the caves in the mountains, are  leaking now or about to leak to  an unforeseen extent. ���  Does nuclear energy create  employment? Other than for  the construction, only a handful  will be needed to operate reactors. We will need a greater  number of police, spies, and wiretappers though. Utility companies naturally want to eliminate  labour. Conservation practices  which would be our greatest,  yet untapped energy resource  are out of the question, because  they would, in fact, create more  labour.  Coercion of public  Why do we continue this  seemingly suicidal insanity? We  can only guess that it is for the  purpose of ultimate centralistic  control and coercion of the public,  and the covert production of infinite amounts of nuclear weapons.  And then there are the experts  who, according to Dr. Urey,  Nobel-laureate and former nuc  lear physicist, "have spent a  substantial fraction of, their productive lives trying to make  power by this method. If we  don't build these plants now,  their efforts will have been  wasted. This leads to a prejudice  on the part of all such people - so  that it is very difficult to trust  them. Although many have quit,  many of them could not do any  other work, and they have families and mortgages to pay for too.'  There is also our common  pseudo-religious belief that we  just need more of everything,  especially energy. Swedes who  enjoy a higher standard of living  per capita than we do, use only  sixty percent of the energy per  capita that we North Americans  use; or shall we say: waste?  Another of our religious beliefs is that every problem can  ultimately be solved through  sophisticated and centralized  big-style technology. When the  supposedly unsinkable Titanic  had radioed its distress call,  the captain of a nearby ship  throught they were joking and  continued his journey. 1500  drowned that night.  Albert Einstein said: "The  splitting of the atom has changed  everything, except our ways of  thinking, and thus we drift toward  unparalleled catastrophe." One  question is whether we want to  believe the assurances of politicians and their expert employees, or whether we are more  . inclined to feel like R. Dubos:  "A society that blindly accepts  the decisions of experts is a sick  society on its way to death."  Credo:  We need more all the time,  We need more energy,  The modem, progressive way is  nuclear power,  There are no alternatives,  It creates a lot of jobs and wealth,  Solar power can't do, It's not hot  enough,  Yon  can't tell  us   to  conserve  energy,  The  government knows what's  best for us,  They have the best scientists,  They can solve any problem,  With government technology and  security, it will be safe, clean,  and economical. As usual.  Seniors  Guide  The updated SPARC {Senior  Citizens Guide to Services in  B.C.' is available for the asking  at the Sunshine Coast Credit  Union, Cowrie Street Sechelt.

Soccer  by Barnibus & Co.  The Wanderers Men's Soccer  Team looked great in their new  black and white strip last Wednesday. They outplayed the  Pender Harbour ' Bananas in a  4-2 decision that saw coach Terry  Duffy substituting freely with  the many new players trying out  for this year's team.  Best players for the Wanderers  were Jan de Reus, Steve Miles  and Nick Bergnach while Peter  Kenny arid Ric Little were outstanding for the Bananas. An  earlier exhibition game scheduled  for Langdale against 5th division  Scandia was cancelled at the  11th hour when the Vancouver  team learned they would have no  changing facilities for showering  after a rainy day game. The field  was lined and the Wanderers  players learned of the cancellation only after arriving at the  playing field.

Very good  Rugby club  prepares  The Gibsons Rugby Club opens  its fall season this Sunday, September 11th, with an exhibition  match against the Vancouver  Welsh at the Elphinstone field  at 1:00 p.m:  The club's efforts to move into  the second division of the V.R.U.  were set back last week\ when  Union reps gave the second division spot to the U.B.C. Old  Boys. Gibsons will have two  teams in the 3rd and 4th divisions  this season depending on numbers. The club could use another  dozen players; experience is not  necessary. <  The regular season begins  September 17th with a Saturday  double match, the 3rds playing  Tsawwassen and the 4th the  Fijians. Both games are scheduled for the Elphinstone field  beginning at Noon.  Arrangements for home and  away matches against Powell  River are being made.  ; The retirement of club- coach  Irv Moscrip has left the club  without a regular coach and an  appointment will have to be made  within the next couple of weeks.  The next meeting will be held  after the regular Tuesday practice at 7:30 behind the high  school. Anyone interested in  attending the meeting is welcome. For information about the  meeting and other club activities  please contact President Lief  Mjanes, Vice-President Jay  Pomfrett, Secretary Bruce Gibson, Treasurer John Spence or  Rugby' Union rep. Geoff Madoc-  Jones.  The Gibsons 'Rugby Club is  still anxious to attract new members. The club's plans of running  two teams this year, one on the  second division of the Vancouver  Rugby/Union and one in the  fourth division, are dependent on  sufficient new members coming  into the club to make two teams  possible.

Children between three and eight  are naturally restless.  So make sure your bring  some games and activities to keep them busy.  On the subject of seat-  belts on kiddies, here are  the guidelines: If you  have little ones - say up  to age 4 - you keep them  on your lap for takeoff  and landing with the seat  belt around both of you.  When they're tucked under the blanket enroute,  fix the seat belt loosely  over them in case of  turbulence. For babies,  there are seats where the  stewardess will snap in  a portable bed in front of  you. Make sure you ask  for these seats (usually  up front) when you buy  your ticket. And don't  forget to remind them  again when you check in  at the airport.  The stewardess will  warm a milk bottle.  Most airlines say they  carry canned baby food,  but don't take any  chances. Take some of  your own.  ���ir  -fr  -it  For all your travel  needs - airline tickets,  sea cruises, AMTRAK  tours, hotel reservations,  car rentals, phone or  drop in at  CONTINENTAL  TRAVEL  Trail Bay Mall, P.O.

Comparison to complexes in  North and West Vancouver is  not fair in the least. The size of  the Kiwanis groups in these  areas, the population served,  pins the difference in the level of  housing make comparison impossible. (North and West Vancouver were built for Personal to  Intermedieate care.)  The Kiwanis group in Gibsons  is not a large service club, however they responded to a need for  housing when apartments were  scarce and rents were too high for  those on fixed incomes. As  happens with so many things,  there are as many expectations  of Kiwanis Village as there are  people.  The fact of the matter remains  the club did provide what they  said they would - low cost rentals.

The beaches  have been getting more and more  crowded as this splendid summer  draws on. The most popular ones  really are overcrowded.     There  is even less space for cars near  the beaches - no place left to park  within  reach  of a  good  hiker,  let alone us old folks and the little  ones.     We all love the beach.  Never   mind   swimming   pools,  does one in a hundred use them?  But the beautiful seaside should  be available to all. We would like  to see a road all along the shoreline  from   beyond   Port   Mellon  on Howe Sound to Sechelt Inlet  and   Jervis   Inlet.       The   little  stretch of road at Gower Point  is a nice example, of shore-line  access.   There would need to be  plenty of places to pull off and  park all along.    Overnight parks  and picnic sites every few miles.  A positive speed limit of 20 miles  per hour as it would be a play  area.   Many free boat launching  pavements    like    the    excellent  (but overcrowded) one in Gibsons  bay and even more parking for  the small  boat-owners.     Roads  leading off the highway down to  the sea every few hundred yards  with big signs saying "Road,to.  the. Bgach" nor  plainly markeidi.  "Beach  Access  Road"   or   "To  Pebble Beach" etc. Use the word  "beach"    unmistakeably,     and  develop many good roads down to  it and oodles of parking.   Where  there are cliffs, good steps and  paths  should  be   put   in,   road  marked    "No    Through    Road,  Steps to Beach".   Then early in  the year when there is a springtide and the water recedes  an  unusually  long way,  bring  the  bull-dozers in and scrape some of  the places where barnacles' are  bad.  The tourists would love it and  you know what? Us good old  residents would get something we  would really treasure and appreciate. Some property owners  near the water would be unhappy,  but they would get advantages  too. They would get used to it  and like it. The folks at Gower  Point love their road for sea-side  walks summer and winter. The  nicest part of the Sechelt area  is Davis Bay etc. where the  highway flows along by the sea.  Better a smaller road however .  with a speed limit. Call it  Holliday Road. Come on village  planners, give us something good  for our money! Something we  really would love. "A thing of  beauty and a joy forever".  A. and E. Adamson.  Lockstead reports from Legislature  The Social Credit government  has introduced a bill to the Legislature that would set up when  passed, a new Crown corporation  called the British Columbia  Systems Corporation.  We find that the government  is operating as though the corporation is already set up. They  have hired consultants at costs up  to $400 a day, all of them setting  up and running a corporation  that doesn't even exist.  This kind of action by the  government shows their total and  complete disregard for the legislature of the province. To hire  persons and to spend the vast  sums of money as they are on the  nonexistent B. C. Systems Corporation shows the autocratic  tendencies of this Social Credit  government.  Obviously the bill has to pass  through second and third readings in the legislature before any  funds can legally  be  set aside  for the use of the corporation.  But the government has seen fit  to go ahead.and take funds out  of general revenue to pay for con-,  sultants that are costing upwards  of $400 a day. These so called  consultants are made up of a  large precentage of Americans  brought in specifically for the job  of organizing the non-existent  Crown corporation.  The really frightening part of  the proposed Systems Corporation is the role that it will finally  serve once the legislation is  rammed through the legislature.  Essentially we have a big  brother situation, with a computer watchdog looking into all  aspects of people's lives. The  plan calls for co-opting of all  computer facilities throughout  the province. In doing this the  Ministry of Human Resources  will have access to the files of the  Attorney-General. What this  means is that someone like Ron  Stew, the man who is perpetuating the fraud known as the Provincial Rehabilitation Program  (PREP) will have access to the  files of the Co-ordinated Law  Enforcement Agency (CLEU)  to use against those, applying for  social assistance.  Putting that kind of information  in the hands of someone so clearly  irresponsible is dangerous. It  sets a precedent for the invasion  of people's privacy that is really  quite frightening.  The other factor to bear in  mind with regard to the BCSC  is that it will mean the government is going to be competing  directly with other computer  facilities throughout the province. At this point there is  barely enough business to go  around the private companies.  To bring in a new computer company with the thought of leasing  out computer time will most  definitely drive a large number  Talk  by Gerry Ward  One of the most popular  scavengers next to the Cory doras  species is the eel-like Coolie  Loach. Actually what you buy as  a Coolie Loach could be a Half  Banded Loach which differs, from  the Coolie only in colour. These  little fishes are found throughout  the western parts of Southeast  Asia and the Sunda Islands.  Both types of these fishes are  very peaceful and because of  their body shapes, they are good  for scavenging food which has  slipped into a nook or cranny in  the bottom pf your aquarium.  They  prefer clean  clear water.  Weather  with a temperature of 76 to 82  degrees F. Coarse gravel should  be avoided, as these fish are  always.grubbing into the gravel  they could injure their mouths  due to their soft skin.  Both types grow from 3 to 3'/2  inches in length and are long and.'  narrow in shape. Some small1  children when they first see  these fish mistake them for funny  looking worms. The Coolie Loach  has a yellowish body colour with  dark bands on either side. The  Half Banded Loach has a yellowish colour on the upper part of  their bodies and a pinkish colour  on the under side. They have  dark bands on the upper half  of their bodies also.  As with any member of the  Loach family these little fellows  are armed with a small- spike  located just under the eye.   Ac  cording to one article I read, a  young snake which had swallowed a Loach was found dead,  the spines lodged into its throat.  If four or more of these fish  are placed in your aquarium you  will probably see them occasionally throughout the day. They  are basically a nocturnal 'fish  which will shun bright light if  at all possible. Loaches will  scavenge almost all foods the  other fish eat, but they should  get some live foods. If you buy  some of these fish give them  somewhere to hide and proper  food and you could have them Cor  two or three years.  wwwwwwwwwww  CLASSIFIED NOTE  Drop   off   your   Coast   News  Classifieds at Campbell's Family  Shoes & Leather Goods in downtown Sechelt.

The eight consecutive days! of  heavy rain which came to the  Sunshine Coast at the end of  August succeeded in bringing to  an end the string of seven months  iii 1977 for which under average  precipitation was recorded.  August this year was a month  in which the precipitation approximated the sixteen-year  average after three years in which  the precipitation which fell  during the month varied wildly.  In 1975 and 1976 there were  near record rainfalls of 103.1  and 104.4 mm respectively.  Whilst in 1974 the rainfall in  August was only 3.0 mm. This  year, after the eight-day downpour, 63.0 mm of rainfall was  recorded for the month. This  compares with the sixteen-year  average of 53.1 mm.  Almost three , consecutive  weeks of temperatures above  25 degrees C. constituted a  record but the highest temperature recorded, 30 degrees C. on  August 16th, did not quite equal  the previous high of 31 degrees C.  which was recorded on July 29th,  1971. Overnight low temperature  for the month was 9 degrees C,  recorded on August 30th.

A system of general sewers  will be required in Pender Harbour if community development  follows the newly revised offical  settlement plan, it was revealed  at a meeting of the plan committee August 31.  "I think it would be safe to  say the committee agrees a sewer  system is inevitable," chairman  Jim Causey said in. answer to  a question by Ratepayers' Association Secretary Howard White.  The idea of sewers being necessary in the sparsely populated  Pender Harbour, area obviously  came as a shock.to the sizeable  group of observers on hand,  most of whom had been attracted by the article appearing in  last week's Ratepayers' report  stating that the plan would encourage Pender Harbour to grow  approximately twenty times its  present size.  Addressing Regional District  Planner Paul Moritz, White said,  "I suggest to you that sewers  are not inevitable at all. They  are inevitable only if we have the  kind of high density development  now contained in the plan. Would  you agree that the need for  sewers could be avoided if we  were to plan for lower denisity  development?"  "That would be another way  to go," Moritz said.  Gordon Liddle asked the committee if it had made any study  of the capability of soils in  various areas for receiving waste  before deciding on densities for  those areas and similiarly if  there had been any attempt to  relate densities to the availability of water, ' 'In view of the  fact that we have had water..  shortages for two years in a row  with just the population there is  now." Liddle was told no such  studies had been made and none  were planned.  Developer Frank Lee, who  owns property with a small creek  on Lilly's Lake objected at some  |   ST.

Frank White objected to. the 7  section of the  plan permitting -  multiple dwelling units  in  the  residential areas around Garden  Bay and Madeira Park.    "What  basis does the committee have to  put in a section like this when  the community has shown itself  to be against condominiums at ;  every   opportunity   it's   had   to  express itself on the matter?"  White asked.   "This community  is against condominiums." :  Planner Moritz disagreed,;  saying the community was not;;  against    condominiums. "I  challenge you to go to referendum  on that," White said. "This  community has voted against  condominiums in the past and:  they will again." Mr. White  asked for stricter provisions in  the plan now, "If this plan is  subject to revision in three to  five years it is better we limit  this high density development  now. rather than open the door to  large-scale development."  The question was raised from  the floor regarding the averaging  of lot sizes in the area to .2 hec-,.  tares (.4950 acres). Howard  White asked the committee if  this averaging took in all the land  in the area including mountain  tops and crown lands. Planner  Paul Moritz stated that this was  so.  "In that case," Mr. White  said, "the averaging would allow  small lot development in almost  every area."  Patrick Lane, Vice-President  of the Ratepayers' Association  asked the committee if their intention had been to limit lot  sizes to one-half acre and was told  this was so. He then directed ���>  his question to Planner Paul  Moritz. "If this committee :  specifically limits lot sizes to  one-half acre in the core areas  are you and the Regional Board  bound to this recommendation?"  "Not so," Mr. Moritz said.  "Are you bound by any of the  recommendations contained in  this Community Plan?" Mr.  Lane asked.  "No we are not," Mr. Moritz.,  responded.  The committee was thrown into  consternation at this revelation  and obviously was dumbfounded.  One. member of the committee  said: "I had no idea that what  we decided here was not necessarily to be acted upon by the  Regional Board."  Robbi Peters questioned the  committee on information contained in the Ratepayers' Report  in the August 23rd Coast News.  She said it appeared from the  article that homeowners around  thife Heid'dfthe Harbour were4  being blamed for polluting the  area.  "The pollution doesn't come  from the houses, it conies from  the boats," she said. "The best  thing this committee could do to  cure pollution would be to demand pump-out stations at all  the marinas." She added that,  "If no satisfaction comes from  this then the local ;people will  have to police their own harbour  and demand from' the tourist  boats stricter pollution controls."  Peters   was   also   concerned  about strictures placed on the  area east of Gunboat Narrows  under the Environment Department's Aquatic Rearing Area  regulations would prevent her  family from developing their  shakemill which requires barge  unloading facilities in East Pender Bay. Committee member  Shirley Vader said she had discussed the problem with fisheries  inspector Ray Kraft and Kraft  felt1 barge docking and shake  bolt storage would constitute no  threat to the area.  In the closed part of the meeting the committee once again  discussed the "Ratepayers'  Report" in last week's Coast  News. Iris Griffiths criticised  the report for singling out certain  members of the committee it  satrcH'terid to-argue'on the side of;  preserving the' bonimunity -like  it Js'over others who tend to be  more pro-development." Members denied nsuch7 a division  existed and chairman Jim Causey  suggested the report be ignored  as'"it was written by an 'outsider'. The coirimittee then proceeded with discussion of the  zoning map and after a brief  question period' adjourned at  10:30. The next meeting on  September 13th will be taken up  by closed discussion of the map  with only a half hour question  period!

SIMPKINS  885-2412  FOR YOUR FREE ESTIMATE   II  Law Talk  by Gordon Hardy  Number 1 in a series of 5 columns  Environmental Law  The excellentwhskey made by  the Bankier Distillery in England  i depended on the pure waters of  a  certain   stream fcr  its   well  known qualities.  But suddenly dd-time customers were complaining. There  is something wrong with the  taste, they said,it's just not what  it used to be.  Alarmed that the distinguished  Bankier reputation might be  washed down the drain, the  owners lost no time in searching  out the cause of ther woe.  What they found was that the  unpleasant change in the taste  of their whiskey was due to a  change in the water of their  stream; upstream, John Young  and Company had begun using  the same water to wash coal.  While this didn't dirty the water  it did change the chemical balance so that whskey made with  it tasted different  The distillery took the coal  company to court and the resulting case, which by 1870 got as  far as the BritishHouse of Lords,  was to be a milestone.  The courts decided in favour  of the distillery, ordering the  coal company to stop changing  the quality of lie water. This  was important because it set a  pattern for lawyers and judges  to follow in later cases.  What John Young and Company v. the Builder Distillery  established was that the distillery, through whose property  the stream ran, had a right to  enjoy the continued good quality  of the water. This right, called  a riparian or water right, includes  lakes, rivers, andsoon.  Laws protect much more than  just water rights . There are laws  that protect property owners from  private nuisance. In one recent  case, a farmer in Delta, B.C.,  arranged to have his vegetable  crop sprayed from the air.  During the spraying, the airplane roared over some neighbourhood houses, causing fright  and shock to two dderiy ladies.  The two ladies took both the  farmer and the aviation company  to court, and fie court decided  in favour of the lades, granting  them compensalon.  7'Over the years, cases-like this*'  and the Young v. Bankier case,  both here and to England, have  become part of what is called  common law. This kind of law,  originally decided an the basis  of what judges think is common  sense and fairness, is different  from legislation^ hich is decided  by elected officials, not judges.  Laws which deal with the environment come from both common law and legjshtion. Lately  laws from legislation have grown  much more quickly than common  laws.  A report of the West Coast  Environmental Law Association  Coast News, September 6,1977.  points out that the common law     general.  rights are based on the idea that F��r   a  "each- person's right to enjoy Pollution  his own property should be protected as much as possible and  that no one should be allowed to  interfere unreasonably with other  people's rights."  13.  A property owner, or even a  tenant, can use the common law  to protect his land against factory  smells, smokes, poisons, insecticides, and noise. Tim Mackenzie, a Vancouver lawyer,  explains: "If you sfart up a mink  ranch and your neighbour is  operating a shooting club, and  the noise of the shots from the  guns cause your minks to miscarry...you could obtain a court  Injunction (order) to stop his  nuisance activities."  The commonhw also can protect property owners from other  kinds of damage. Mackenzie  explains that "a person who  brings dangerous substances onto  his land for his own use and then  allows them to escape onto your  land will be held strictly accountable for all damages." This is  called the rule in Ryiands v.  Fletcher, after an old case, and  includes everything from battery  acid fumes to wil animals.  In common law, it is the citizen, usually the property owner,  who must "take the law into  his own hands". No government department has any responsibility for it. If a property owner  feels that damage is being done  to his land, then he must arrange  with his lawyers to drag the offending party tocourt.

Last week's winner was Mrs. Gibson of R.R. 1, Madeira  Park who correctly identified the Francis Peninsula bridge at Canoe Pass.  ��� Continued from Page 1  national unity is an artificial  issue raised by a governing  party in Ottawa which is bankrupt of ideas with which to deal  with the problems of the nation  and had run the non-issue of  national unity up the flag pole to  see if enough people saluted to  justify an election called on that  issue.  "The real problems are in the  areas of economy and employment," said Robertson, "and  what is required is ongoing and  continuing support by the federal  government in job creation programs. Robertson challenged the  contemporary wisdom which  maintains that government must  by definition be inefficient.  "The  problems of bigness are not  government's alone," he said and  pointed to the fact that many of  the corporations which manage  the economy of North America  are about as large in organization  as the Canadian federal government.  When asked why he thought he  was the best of the candidates  running for the N.D.P. candidacy,  Robertson replied that he had  much experience in dealing with  governments and their bureaucracy; that he had a great familiarity from boyhood with the coastal  riding' he   seeks   to   represent;  and that his four years with the  B.C. and Canadian Teachers'  Federation had brought him into  constant contact with both provincial and national figures such  as Judy LaMarsh.  Since his unsuccessful campaign in the provincial election  of 1969 in Skeena, Robertson has  been employed by the Department of Education in Victoria in  the field of Adult Education.  His particular field is centred in  the North Island Community  College in Campbell River which  serves the entire north end of  Vancouver Island.  REGISTRATION FOR GIBSONS  GUIDES & BROWNIES  7 years & up  Monday,  September 12th  7:30 p.m.   at the  GIBSONS UNITED  CHURCH HALL  886-7714  4-H Club goes to PNE  by Margaret Kitson  assisted    by    Bellavista    Merry  Anne and Gleno Noble Brenda.  On August 12th to 16th the  Howe Sound 4-H Jersey Club  participated in the 106th annual  Chiliiwack Fair. The following  report was told to her secretary  by Gleno Noble Brenda, while  at the PNE.  The morning we left for Chiliiwack, Anne, a friend who shares  my barn, told me not to dawdle  over my beetpulp and hay. So,  I ate as fast as I could, and as  a result, got the hiccups. Then to  top it all off, I was led up to  Chamberlin's and pushed and  shoved into a trailer. Luckily  I was tied because Anne, who  turned to me everytime I asked  a question, said, "Just be quiet  and look at the view." Hmph!  What was I supposed to do, count  powerpoles? Finally we got to  Chiliiwack, and was it ever hot.  (According to Anne, who knows  all about being a show cow, it  poured buckets last year.)  A Her being removed from the  trailer, I was led into the barn.  It was  heavenly,  with  shavings  a foot deep, fresh straw, and the  hay.    I drool just remembering  it.    Later in the day more black  and white cows moved in beside  us.    Then came the bath, in a  room, just like people, (with the  bi.��j    new   barn   there's   a   new  washing  room,   Anne   said   last  year   they   had   to   get   washed  outside, how embarrassing.)  Then came hay and it was soon  time to settle down, in the com-  forrable bedding.  Early the next morning, Anne  and J strolled around the racetrack and I made two new 1,100  pound friends, Sandy and Twin,  two Herefords.  After breakfast everything became busier and people looked  at us, and told us we were cute  bulls, (because some of us had  horns) Ha! Some people are  rather stupid. Anne told me not  to stare at the people, but I  thought it was fun. Towards  the afternoon it became extremely hot and very boring. After  I had discovered that whitewash  doesn't taste very good, I began  reading our namcplates above  our stall. By the end of the fair  1 was able to tell everyone's  pedigrees. After dinner Stephen  and Ruby, Frank and Babs, and  Mairi and Sadie disappeared.  Anne said they were doing  Showmanship, which was showing the animal to it's best advantage. Then everyone came back  from the ring and judged in their  age groups on the Danish System  they all received 2nd place ribbons, so ended another fair day.  After waking up bright and  early, and in the process of  waking Anne up, I was promptly  informed by her ladyship that it  was Sunday, sleep-in day. Well.  I couldn't sleep because I wanted  breakfast, the beetpulp was soon  dished out to us, I really can't  say anymore about Sunday other  than it was again an unbelievably  hot day.  Monday, however, was  quite  different. Anne said it was show-  day, which meant we didn't get  breakfast at the usual time and  had   to   be   scrupulously   clean,  from ears to toe-nails.   Now, tell  me what Judge is going to look  at our toes, to which Anne replied, "It takes pains to be beautiful."     Soon   after  waking   up  "operation   showcow"    started.  We were all fitted with beetpulp,  hay, and water, as well as being  brushed,  curried,  polished  and  inspected.   Everyone passed inspection and was led into  the  ring.    The first class was 4-H  judged  Danish   System  by   Mr.  R. Barchello of Langley.  Frank  and   Bonnie   Babs   received 1st ribbon, Margaret and  Stephen 2nd, and Margaret and  I a 3rd.    After that experience  I nearly collapsed.    Then Anne  told me it wasn't over, we still  had open class to go, that news  made me bite  my tongue,  but  .it wasn't half as bad as I had  imagined.   We all had to line up  and Frank and Babs got a ribbon  for 6th, I was 9th, Stephen 11th,  Mairi, 13th, suddenly it was all  over, back to the barn. Out came  Anne, and she got an 8th place.  We could all relax until the evening when off I went again with  Karl   and   Margaret   in   Senior  Showmanship.  There were many older 4-H  members, they judged Danish  System again, Karl got a 1st and  Margaret a 2nd.  Tuesday was the last day, as  hot as ever, but I passed the  day watching all the beef animals  getting ready for showing, which  was interesting. Later in the  afternoon we were herded into  the trailer, like cattle! Then taken  to Bellavista Farms, to wait a  day or two till we went to the ffl  PNE. Anne says, that's really  living because we go to Vancouver, and the city people say such  funny things about us.  We travelled to the PNE in  a big cattle truck, what style,  I read my name "Gleno Jerseys"  on the side, so knew I was going  to use the truck, but Anne explained that it was a herd name,  I don't always listen to Anne  though. Our ride was short,  no ferry. On arrival at the fair  grounds, we found more lovely  shavings and straw just like  Chiliiwack, but cooler, being a  show cow has the nice sides.  Sunday was show afternoon,  so Anne got to sleep in. At 2:00  p.m. the judging started, there  were 22 of us and the judge had  come all the way from Quebec.  I didn't recognize anyone, it  was all so big, but then we had  to line up and there I saw Sadie  and Mairi. Frank got 5th, Mairi  12th, and Margaret 13th. What  an experience! It all seemed to  take so long - he was a very  careful judge. After we had  finished it was Anne's turn again,  there were lots of animals in her  class too,  and   she  came  back  with an 8th place which was  exciting. Anne is a show cow,  not like me.  After we go home on Wednesday, to Bellavista, in my truck,  I won't have to behave myself.  (Anne says I never do!) On  September 16th we.all go to the  Cloverdale Fair, how about  coming to see us?   -  sohool SUPPUEB  Pfesterantit (Eljemtsia ^Cttt.  r  Bulk Imported Cheeses  Fresh European  ' Meats & Sausage  and a full line of  ; Table Ready Foods ���  ��� DELICATESSEN  ��� CAFETERIA  ^ Sunnycrest Centre  i  &  vosurs  RESTAURANT  Sunnycrest Shopping Plaza  Gibsons 886-8015  Featuring the finest in  Cantonese and Western Cuisine  SPECIAL GROUP DINNERS  OF CHINESE FOOD  Open 4:30 -10:00 p.m.  Closed Wednesday  DINE   IN    OR   TAKE   OUT  CAMpbell's  FAMILY  SHOES  and  LEATHER GOODS  RENOVATION  SALE  SAVINGS UP TO 50%  "IN THE HEART OF DOWNTOWN SECHELT''  Your  friendly   neighbourhood   drop-off   point  Box 381 Sechelt, B.C.  885-9345 VON 3AO  for Coast News  Classified Ads.  rpm  For Private Use or Business  AUTOVEST LEASE TO OWN  Before you bny, investigate the advantages of this rent-  to-own plan.
