Regional District  may acquire  At the regular meeting of the Regional Board last Wednesday  Secretary Anne Pressley was instructed to price an appraisal  for.the property at Soames Point, which has once more come up  for sale as a regional park.  The property is 4.3 acres with 263 feet of waterfront and is  being offered at a price of $230,000. This is the second time  it has been offered to the board, the first time coinciding with  the offer from Ed Johnstone that the.board purchase his land  on Nob Hill, which by referendum the public opted for.  The district has been given the option by the representative  ofthe owner, to obtain a five month interim agreement for $10  which would give them time'to go.to the people. It would also;  give breathing space for contacting the regional Minister of  Recreation and Conservation and have the land designated  as a Regional Park.  The two ways to acquire this park would both have to go to  public referendum.  One method would be to raise Howard White of the Raincoast  the tax limit under regional parks Chronicles outlining his proposal  functions presently at l/10th of for the publication of The Hiking  a   mil   to   1   mil   (an   arbitrary   Trails book.    $1,790 is still left  figure) for the whole regional  area - Gibsons excluded, this  would make monies available  under the function to purchase  land in other parts of the region  if they become available in the  future.  An alternative to this would be  to purchase the property solely  from the revenue in Area "F",  as was done with the purchase of  Nob Hill. Doing it this way would  increase the mil to 1.2, 4/5ths of  this would come from the $20  million tax value of the Port  Mellon mill and l/5th from the  taxpayer.  A grant of Vi of the debt incurred would be available to the  regional district, the average cost  from the original L.I.P. grant,  this would go towards the $6,091  publication costs and Mr. White  would retain copyright for as  long as he kept the book in print.  This was agreed to unanimously as it would ensure the books  publication along with.a saving  of $1,500 which had been set  aside for this purpose. ���  One the question of junk mail  and telephone calls being received as a result of the free  access to building permits,  director Hoemberg recommended  that a fee be charged for this  information, a figure of $5.00  was discussed.  ���Mr. M.

Metzler critical of regional staff  Trustees  criticize  referendum  Trustees of School District  #46 have expressed some dissatisfaction with the revised  recreational referendum to be  presented by the Regional District Recreation Commission.  The action by the .trustees followed a report by their representative on the commission.  Mrs. Maureen Clayton, who  sought board guidance in some-  matters that seemed to her to  be controversial.  Specifically the School Board  questioned three aspects of the  proposed referendum. Firstly  they determined that they could  not support the recreation commission's position on the proposed curling extension at the  Sechelt Arena. The School  Board questioned the use of  public funds for both the capital  cost and the operating deficit  for what was essentially a private  club.  The School Board also questioned the advisability of constructing the proposed new community hall in Roberts Creek,  offering the opinion that the community's needs would be best  served by utilization of existing  school facilities. The trustees  also questioned the accuracy of  the estimated annual deficit of  $5,000.  The third item on the proposed  referendum . to fall under the  critical eye of the school trustees  was the provision of $275,000  capital cost for the Pender Harbour swimming pool. The trustees expressed themselves as  being under the impression thai  the required funding was coming  from a Neighbourhood Improvement Plan grant and from otho  recreational facility funds.  7 , Trustee 7Matireen.Clay tori 7\\ili  take these matters up at-the'next  meeting of the recreation commission.  "LA"*  r��cH��'-  /^  06-r  -11-  Police seek identity  The above picture is a composite drawing of a man who  assaulted a young woman on  October 9th. The incident  occurred at 1:15 p.m. when the  girl was hitchhiking from Field  Road. The driver made advances  towards her, when she resisted,  he began hitting her repeatedly.  At Davis Bay the truck slowed  down enough for the girl to get  At the Regional District Planning Committee meeting held in  Sechelt last Wednesday, director  Metzler, the Gibsons representative sparked off a heated debate  when he read aloud a letter from  the regional district to Mr. Gary  Runka of the B.C. Land Commission. The letter dealt with an  application for exclusion by  Creekside Estates in the Agricultural Land Reserve within  the boundaries of Gibsons municipality.  Director Metzler's complaint  was that while a letter had been  sent to the Land Commision not  recommending exclusion, the  matter had not come before the  board, and as a result he proposed three recommendations.  1. That in matters of policy,  the staff should not speak for  the board.  2. That the board amend  existing policy as to leave recommendation of exlusion or inclusion in the Land Reserve up to  the individual councils.  3. That the board inform the  Land Commission and the Lands  Branch ofthe change in policy.  Director Hoemberg from Area  "B" felt that he could not agree  with recommendation #1 as in  his opinion the staff was not  acting outside the guidelines  set for them. "Our policy is now  The man is described as being   clearer than it was in the past,"  Speaking on proposal #1,  the Area "A" director Peterson,  said that by agreeing to it the  board would in fact be emasculating the staff and it was not the  intention of the regional district  to throw their weight around as  far as the municipalities were  concerned.  Chairman Harry Almond summed up by stating that in the  past there had not been enough  communication in open discussion between the villages and the  board, which results in neither of  the parties being aware of the  long range plans ofthe others.  Director Metzler withdrew  recommendation #1, the other  two were voted on and both  were passed by a vote of six for  and one against.  Also on the agenda was a  request from Lyttle Bros, that  the board comment on their  proposal to divert Ouellette and  Gosden Creeks in order to proceed with their plans to build  a sawmill in Howe Sound. The  board had no objection, but on  the recommendation of director  Johnstone, the company would  be notified about the difficulties  consistent  particular  of    maintaining     a  channel     for    these  creeks.  Sechelt  Two amendments were discussed in the Sechelt Vicinity  Plan, the first being in section  5.1.6.2 F regarding garbage  operations in Davis Bay. It was  felt that the job of the regional  board was not to find an answer  for this, but only to identify  the problem. Secondly that  the tourist area in Davis Bay be  extended to include the land  directly behind the present  facilities, as at this time the  area is non-conforming and in  the event of a fire could not be  rebuilt. Access would still be  from the highway and would not  interfere with the residents.  A request for the relaxation of  the ten percent perimeter requirement on the proposed subdivision at Browning Road in  Area "C" was not recommended  as it was felt by the board that  a steep bank on the property  would not facilitate the proposed  building.  Strike's over folks - for now!  ^r^^  s'5f?'.  Just before the end of the ferry strike Pineridge Farms had some bread barged over.

Police are still investigating.  Area population figures  The Sunshine Coast Regional  District released population  figures broken down by electoral  district at their meeting held on  Thursday, October 13th. Voting  at the regional board is apportioned by population with each  director casting one vote for  every thousand people and fraction thereof in his electoral area.  The    figures    released    were  their representative on the regional board to have 3 votes;  Sechelt has 822 residents and  their representative one vote;  Area "A" at the top end of  the district has 1,807 residents  and Area "A" representative  has two votes; Area "B" has  1,427 residents and two votes;  Area   "C" has 2,200 residents  he  said,   "and  our  instructions  have been followed.''  The Sechelt member, director  Thompson stated that at the time  of policy making, the villages  may have been naive to expect  to retain domain over their  properties and this had to be resolved, however he did feel that  the staff had been a little over  zealous.  Name chosen  The name of the new elementary school on Chaster Road will  be Cedar Grove Elementary  School. The name was chosen  by the trustees of School District #46 at their meeting held on  and three votes; Area "D" has  population" figures   certified   by   1,355 residents and two votes; Thursday,   October   13th.

Paterson to oppose  condominium project  Jack Paterson, Regional Director for Area "A", assured a  meeting of concerned Pender Harbour residents on Sunday,  October 16th that he would support them in their opposition  to the proposed Millwood condominium at Canoe Pass.  The statement came after two hours of heated discussion  in which Paterson appeared at different times to favour both  sides ofthe debate. He began by saying that the condominium  was a "good project" and he would rather see it than "twenty  trailers on the property" but as the meeting closed he said  he had only been "taking a negative, position to bring out  your best arguments.''  Paterson agreed that the regional board has the power to  stop the project when it comes^up for third reading but could  not guarantee he would be able to sway the rest of the directors.  Joe Harrison, president of the Ratepayers' Association,  told the meeting that even with the support of Paterson the  group could not hope to stop the project unless it "packed the  hall" at the official hearing in Madeira Park this Sunday,  October 23rd at 2:00 p.m. Harrison noted that all petitions  and letters of protest should be brought to the meeting so that  they can be included in the minutes to be sent to Victoria.  One of the first ferries to run after the recent strike is pictured arriving at the Langdale  Ferry Terminal. A pleased group of travellers can be seen filing off with an equally pleased  group waiting to get to the city. The strike was called off for twelve days effective last  Friday to give the newly-appointed mediator a chance to resolve the dispute.

Bing Crosby  Along with much of the rest of the  world the Coast News would like to salute  the passing of one of the grand old men  of entertainment. When Bing Crosby  died suddenly last week there was a  great sadness and yet a sense too of the  fitting nature of his going. He died at  the completion of a golfing foursome  which he and his partner had just won  on vacation in Spain. His death came  just three days after he closed his final  successful concert at the London Palladium.  This was a man who for five decades  moved easily and economically at the  very pinnacle of show business success.  He did so with a matter of factness and  an unassuming and authentic modesty  which won him the affection of his fans  and co-workers alike. He was an institution but he never let that override his genial humanity. He wore the  mantle of great success with a casual  dignity and his death last week came  with the same economy and minimum of  fuss which marked his living. Bing's  greatness lay in his ordinariness. Few  men can have earned so much affection  in their lives and those of us to whom  he brought pleasure must be pleased  that the end came for him with a minimum of suffering. R.I.P.  Motivation  Whether one is or is not a follower of  professional football, there can be no  doubt that it leads to some very peculiar  behaviour on the part of its practitioners.  Until recently the prize for deranged  absurdity would seem to have rested  securely with a Mr. Butts Giraud who  at one time was an aspiring lineman for  the B.C. Lions. Mr. Giraud acquired  his nickname by his practice of beating  his head against the metal locker door  till the blood came, no doubt while  uttering bestial and frightening roars,  in order to get himself up for the game  or the practice or whatever lay ahead.  But Butts had to move back from the  championship podium when two stories  filtered out of the high-school football  scene in the U.S. of A. First there was  a gentleman whose team was to pjay  opponents called The Golden Eagles ' *  and' who, at the conclusion of the last   pre-game practice was seized with a  golden inspiration of his own. He spray-  painted a live chicken and had his team  kick it around the field. The story came  complete with a testimony from his boss  as to the gentleman's sterling character.  One was just recovering from this  insight when it, too, was topped. A  couple of days after the painted chicken  story we learned that there was some  where in the ranks of high school coaches  a man who had for years turned to the  expedient of biting off frogs' heads in  order to arouse the requisite ferocity in  his young charges.  Far be it from the Coast News to pass  moral judgements on these gentlemen  but one would like to think that it might  be possible to live in a civilization where  such derneariing;'���*absurdity would be  laughed out of existence.  The airport question  It would seem from this corner that  there is something unfortunately cavalier  about the treatment that the Committee  Against the Rape of the Environment  (CARE) is receiving at the hands of the  Sechelt council. At the conclusion of  their presentation two weeks ago council  attempted to move on to other business  without replying to the committee. Dr.  Berman's request for reassurance that  the airport lease would not be finalized  while the council was deliberating went  unheeded.  We hold no particular brief in the  matter of the airport lease, yet it does  seem to be sloppy government to have  one man and that man an interested  party negotiating both sides of an agreement. We would like to know what it.  costs airports in other small communities  to lease their land. The recommendation  made by CARE that the Ministry of  Transport's recommendation that a  safety officer be appointed seems reasonable and the views of council on the  matter would be appreciated.  In short some of the recommendations  made by CARE would on the surface  seem to have some merit. If the council  feels that they have not enough merit  to warrant implementation then, as a  responsible public body, they owe to  CARE and the public at large a full and  rational explanation of their actions.  There is no great shame if the council  finds and admits that perhaps they have  been hasty and should reconsider one or  two of the points raised by CARE. If  no explanation or justification of their  position is forthcoming, however, council  stands to suffer some damage to their  credibility.  from the files of Coast News  5 YEARS AGO  Following the cremation of Alan Canon  Greene, of the Anglican Church, his  ashes were scattered over the waters of  Welcome Pass, a befitting final resting  place for Canon Greene, sea and sky  pilot of this rugged coast.  A joint student-teacher-community  tennis court construction programme is  under way at Elphinstone Secondary  School. Several generous offers have  already been received from local business  men.  10YEARS AGO  Judging from reports by hunters,  there are wolves in the area. They have  been sighted now and then and there is  a reminder that there is a $40.00 bounty  on these animals.  How about a 24 pound squash, 8  radishes weighing one-and-a-quarter  pounds, a 60 pound pumpkin and onions  of almost a pound each. Good garden  crops this year.  Damage amounting to $1,000 caused  by rain and tearing down of a concrete  wall because it was not up to specifications at Elphinstone Secondary School.  15 YEARS AGO  Gibsons council at their last meeting  decided to let the problem  of parking  rest for a month.  20 YEARS AGO  A permit for an $8,000 two-storey  building to be used as sales and service  building for Smitty's Boat Rentals was  granted by Gibsons Village commission.  The Queen and her royal party are  visiting Ottawa. The event will be  televised throughout the country.  25 YEARS AGO  Gordie King of the Trading Post,  Halfmoon Bay, learned the thrill of a  "28" crib hand. He was playing with  his father when the hand turned up.  A mercy flight was interrupted last  Thursday when an airplane enroute from  Kemano to Vancouver was forced into  landing at Redrooffs due to the low fog  ceiling over Vancouver. The aircraft  stayed overnight. Among the passengers were Mrs. Bryan Martin and her  two-year old son who was being taken  to Vancouver to have a screw removed  from one of his lungs.  Saskatchewan, 1920's. This most unusual photo was brought to  Canada's farthest west by Guy Clear in 1928. One hen seems to  be actually ousting a coyote from the shared meal, and the dog  finds himself a definite non-U outsider. Guy and Olive, whose  John Faustmann profile appeared in last week's Coast News, do  not mix chickens and coyotes at their Redrooffs Road home.   But  they do observe and live amicably with eagles, deer, purple Martins  and other natural neighbours. And if there are any mortal beings  who can bring the lion and the lamb to break bread in peace together,  Guy and Olive Clear must certainly number among them.

Elizabeth  the Second is in Canada on the  occasion of her twenty-fifth  Jubilee and I must confess to a  few sour thoughts about the  monarchy. Nothing against the  lady herself who has been well-  schooled for her role and generally carries it off with dignity and  conservative aplomb. There are  aspects of the institution however, which have in the past  brought me to the teeth-gnashing  stage and though I aspire towards  :��jvmot6'mellow .temperance th^se .  days there's a few things'/I'd  like to get off my chest.       7'  First of ali as a Scotsman and  in the interests of strict historic  accuracy this queen is not Elizabeth   the   Second.       The   first  Elizabeth   was   queen   only   of  England, not of the United Kingdom,   or   -  since  the   historical  accuracy must be complete - she  was not queen of Scotland but of  England, Wales and Ireland only.  The first monarch to preside over  Scotland as well as the rest was  Queen     Elizabeth's     successor  James  who  was   James  VI  of  Scotland   and  became   James   I  of the United  Kingdom.     It  is  simply, therefore,'not debatable  that this  is  Elizabeth  I of the  United     Kingdom,     the     first  monarch so named to occupy the  united throne.  My second historic quibble -  wait a minute, Martha, I'll get  to the contemporary scene - is  of course that if one believes in  the principle of monarchy by  bloodlines, of position by inheritance - a questionable historical tenet since monarchs were  as often chosen by bloodletting  as by bloodlines - then this particular family has very little connection with the United Kingdom.  Their ancestors were brought in  simply as a political expedient  at the end of the seventeenth  century when the Stuarts, wrong-  headed and unmanageable to the  end, were dispensed with and  more tractable types imported  from the Continent who could be  relied upon to be grateful and  well-behaved and couldn't very  well believe in the Divine Right  of Kings since political expediency had caused them to be invited  to the throne.  A century later Robert Burns  described the incumbent monarch, the mad George III, as  "a wee, wee, German Lairdie"  and so he was. Through the  nineteenth century under the  long reign of Queen Victoria  who was neither amusing nor  amused the monarchy of Great  Britain remained more German  than British and in this century  His Royal Highness Prince  Philip was a member of the  Hitler Youth in Germany in the  1930's and but for some vestigial  traces of royal blood connecting  him with one of the foundered  European monarchies, which  brought him to Britain and eventually to the position of consort  to Her Most Gracious Majesty,  he might have become an  S.S.  officer instead. This is a man,  let us recall, who not too long ago  regretted on a visit to one of the  totalitarian military regimes in  South America that it was his lot  to live in a country where the  people had too much bloody  power.  These are possibly bad-tempered and historic quibblings so  perhaps we should now heed the  impatient Martha and turn our  attention to the present. A  sociologist,! am not, but I..did  grow.up in the United, Kingdom  and have a "few thoughts'about  that society. It is, of course,  common knowledge that Great  Britain has fallen on hard times  in the second half of the twentieth  century. The country that bestrode the industrial world like  a complacent giant and a century  ago considered a third of the  world her territory and so coloured her maps has for almost three  decades now been the weak  sister of the industrial nations.  It is hardly possible to keep  blaming the great toll taken on  her final :ial reserves by the  Second World War in view of the  present formidably buoyant  financial positions of Germany  and Japan, who also suffered  much as the result of war. No,  Britiain's difficulties since the  Second World War are of her own  devising and usually when the,  finger is pointed in blame i* is  pointed at the trade union movement and the recalcitrance and  laziness of the British working  man.  It seems to me that the root  cause of Britain's malaise, however, is the class system. The  incredibly strong sense still  existant of "us and them" which  divides and damages the country.  I lived as a boy in a cluster of  lesser dwellings around a great  ivy-covered granite mini-castle  which was surrounded by rolling  grounds and orchards and tenant  farms, the occupants of which  were, of course, not expected to  work. It was just one such minor  establishment in a country which  was full of them and they bred  resentment. As a consequence  when the working class was urged  to be more productive they  tended to snort in derision and  still do and of course the root  ofthe class system is the principle  of inherited monarchy.  The apologists point to the  tourist revenue that the .royal  i family brings to 'the' country but  it seems to me.that tourist revenues should be the icing on the  cake and where they make a  disproportionate percentage of  a nation's income trouble lies  ahead because there will be  difficult years when tourists  simply don't come.  I'm not a wild-eyed opponent  of the British monarchy. It is  an insitution which has just  about lived out any usefulness it  ever had. At the present time  I would agree with Willie Hamilton whose book My Queen and I  puts the anti-monarchist case  well if a little stridently that it  is a costly anachonism which  probably will not outlast the  present century. The present  monarch is a collected and con-  rolled individual. It is unlikely  that Prince Charles will be such  a one and I feel that, cheering  Jubilee crowds aside, the hold of  the institution is a tenuous one  and one breath of scandal or one  misguided political initiative on  the part of the incumbent will  blow it away.  What will be needed will be  a meritorcracy with each generation getting away from the  starting gate with as little handicap as can be devised. The day  of the inherited ruler is nearly  over and irrespective of the  sentimental tug of yesterday  will soon close.

These hardy  souls play for one of the eight  different teams which play regularly on the coast, from Gibsons  to Pender Harbour. The Gibsons  Rugby Club has two teams, one  in the third division of the Vancouver Rugby Union and another  in the fourth division. There are  three teams at Elphinstone, one  grade eight, one junior (under  sixteen) and one senior team.  The grade eights and juniors play  in a Sechelt School District league  against teams from Pender Harbour Secondary and Chatelech.  The juniors and seniors also pick  up exhibition matches against  lower mainland schools. In fact  in two weeks the Elphinstone  juniors and seniors will travel to  St. Georges in Vancouver for two  games. In case you've never  heard of St. Georges, it's a private school where classes have to  be fitted in between rugby  practices. At St. Georges rugby  is not just a way of life, it is  life itself.  It's a remarkable thing that a  small coastal community like ours  can generate so much enthusiasm  for a game which in most parts  of the world is played, strangely  enough, by the upper classes.  (If you "'"ibt this contention then  read the latest issue of The  Financial Post Magazine.) One  hundred and fifty rugby players  constitute something like one percent of the population of the Sunshine Coast. Although my friend  Madoc-Jones assures me that  more than one percent of the  Welsh play rugby, I'm sure there  are few places in the world where  as high a proportion of the people  play the game.  Gibsons does not just play a  lot of rugby, it plays good rugby.  Gibsons is well known in the  Vancouver Rugby Union as a  hard tackling, aggressive and  control type team. For the past  three years the Gibsons thirds  have been among the top two or  three teams in their division and  this year is no exception, and the  Gibsons' fourths appear to be a  powerhouse in their division.  A few years ago if you asked a  townie if he had ever heard of  Gibsons he might have said  something like, "Isn't that the  place where people retire and  go fishing?" These days you're  just as likely to hear, "Isn't that  where they play rugby?''  Rugby came to Gibsons about  six years ago when Elphinstone  P.E. teacher Gary Gray talked a  group of loggers, log salvagers,  boom men, fishermen and teachers into forming a team. That  first team established the character of Gibsons' rugby which has  carried on ever since. Men like  Alex Skytte, Jim Peers, Herb  Flummerfelt, Bobby Emerson,  Pete Rigby, to mention only a  few of those originals set a standard for size, strength and toughness.which all of our local teams  follow. What those originals  Tacked in skill they made up in  mean. Once rugby established  itself in the high school, again  thanks to Gary Gray, the future of  Gibsons' rugby was assured.  Moving up from the school  team to the men's team became  almost as significant as graduating. Playing our first game for  the Gibsons Rugby Club after  playing high school ball has become something like an initiation  rite into manhood. Over the years  ex-Elphie players like Pat Gaines,  Frank Havies, John Crosby,  Larry Knowles, Brian Evans and  more recent grads like Bill Bradshaw, Ryan Matthews, and  James Peers have made the club  better and better. There are  high school students playing for  the men right now; Bill Connors,  Rick Lawson, Gary Guelph; and  during and after the game they  are club members first and above  everything else even though  other club members during  working hours are their school  teachers.  Rugby is a game which does  not tolerate discrimination on  the basis of age, class, occupation  or financial condition. In many  respects it is the ultimate democratic experience. Men and boys  who, under normal circumstances, would never even have the  opportunity to meet, become  friends and comrades and learn  respect for one another. There is  a thirty year age spread among  the active players in the club.  There is as wide a variety of  occupations and human conditions in the club as you're likely  to find in the community; students, loggers, businessmen,  policemen, teachers, carpenters,  boom men.  You may be wondering why  someone as sensitive and intelligent as your correspondent is  devoting this space to such a  roughneck sport as rugby. The  simple truth is that I love the  game. It is a pure and concrete  metaphor of life; the mud, the  pain, the struggle, the striving  for success and excellence, the  co-operative effort to achieve a  simple, uncomplicated goal turns  me on. I won't be able to play for  ever but even when I feel myself  wearing out and slowing down I  think of the 72 year old hooker  who plays for the Japanese over  sixties team and I think to myself  that another thirty years of rugby  and I might just be ready to hang  up my cleats.  UNICEF  At Hallowe'en UNICEF asks  you to remember the needs of  children everywhere.

C��V>ftre��  LETTERS to the EDITOR  Planning  The following is a letter sent to  the Sechelt Vicinity1 Planning  Committee.  Sechelt Vicinity Study Committee  Sunshine Coast Regional District  Box 800, Sechelt, B.C.  Dear Sirs:  I have attended two meetings  regarding the proposed plan for  the Sechelt vicinity. 1 came  away with mixed feelings. I  understand that long-range  planning is absolutely necessary  to prevent a type of "urban  sprawl" that most of us who  chose to move here were escaping  from. In my view, "strip development" is to be avoided at  all cost.  Yet, the committee, with little  explanation, has decided to  expand the commercial strip  along the Davis.Bay.beach,area.  They say the plan is not to cater  to tourist and landowner interests  but to preserve our beautiful  and unique natural attributes  which make this area such an  attractive place to live and work.  Why then, must any expansion  of a commercial nature take  place along the Davis Bay shore?  It is attractive to tourists because  there are no large expanses of  asphalt parking lots, storefronts,  heaped garbage bins, crowds of  people and bright lights to destroy a serene atmosphere and  dim an incomparable view.  I have had conversations with  many visitors to this area and  . the above view is. a distillation  of what they feel, not just my  own opinion. The places of business already existing in Davis  Bay, are, in my view, quite adequate to service the residents  and visitors of the Davis Bay  area well into the future. When  the existing motels and business  places are filled to capacity more  than the odd weekend, and the  route of the by-pass highway  is definitely known, then it will  be time to consider rezoning.  Another point that comes to  mind is that nowhere in the proposed plan, or in the proposal  put forth by the Area "C" group,  chaired by Jack Whitaker, is  any provision for height restrictions. Due to the topography  of the area, this would seem to  be a requisite to preserve the  view of the ocean of many people  who paid premium prices for view  property.  The Sechelt planner stated at -  one of the meetings that input is  often slanted; negative feelings  being expressed more often than  approval. I do approve of the  planning in progress, but I submit that some more work needs to  be done to simplify and distill  t'.ie basic philosophy which is  being formed for the future  direction of the Sechelt vicinity,  particularly in regard to considering commercial expansion in  the Davis Bay area.  I further submit a suggestion  to the committee to spend some  time taking a .walk along the  beach; talk to some of the residents and visitors; observe the  impact of the existing garbage  strewn along the beach from the  fast food outlet already existing;  and envision the future of this  beach with more ofthe same.  No one has been able to define,  exactly what a "tourist-oriented"  business is likely to be. I have  been advised by the planning  committee that each application  Aero Ghi>  will be reviewed on its individual  merit. This leaves the granting  of business licenses to whoever  happens to be on the committee  at any particular time. Some will  feel more inclined than others to  interpret the term loosely. We  have already had an example of  that in trying to decide whether  or not a marine hardware outlet  comes under the term "tourist-  oriented". How about a laundo-  mat? A disco dance hall? Who  will draw the line and where?  In closing, I would like to  repeat that I am in approval of  the second draft of the plan with  the provision that it is simplified,  and that a basic philosophy be  formed, defined, and adhered to.  I am not in favor of more commercial zoning in the Davis Bay  area until definite need is shown.  I feel confident that I speak for  many residents of the area.  Joan Y. Wall  Thank you  Editor:  Thank you for helping to publicize our recent request for name  suggestions for our new school.  From the short list submitted  by our staff, the School Board  trustees have chosen "Cedar  Grove Elementary School". The  suitability of this name is obvious  to those who visit us and see  the beautiful cedar trees that are  part of our natural landscaping.  The name "Cedar" occurred a  number of times in the list of  names we received. One of staff  members, Bob Cotter, suggested  the addition of "Grove".  Our staff members were  gratified at the response to our  request and we extend our thanks  to all those who took the time  to submit a name. Thank you.  Colleen J. Elson  Principal  Cedar Grove Elementary School  Granthams  Editor:  Through your excellent paper,  I would like to congratulate the  property owners of Granthams  Landing for the outstanding  interest shown in their recent  vote. I am sure that any place  in Canada, either Municipality,  provincially, or federally would  take a back seat to Granthams  and a 70% turnout at the polls.  I was an interested spectator  during the water controversy  in Granthams and can assure  you that only dedicated workers  such as were in evidence in  Granthams Landing could produce the results as shown by  the vote.  More than anything else, the  voting turnout and the overwhelming decision to retain the  present water system is an  example to people in our free  world that the people can speak  and be heard in a democratic  society.  Thank you all for restoring my  faith in the principle that big  business, big government or  big anything is still the servant  ofthe informed voter.  I would suggest that all of  Canada could look to Granthams  Landing for a job well done .t  F. Norman  North Vancouver  Editor:  I have always thought it better  to remain silent and be thought a  fool than to speak up and remove  all doubt, but after the reports in  the local papers concerning the  Villages' lease of a small plot of  ground to the Elphinstone Aero  Club and this group that call  themselves C.A.R.E., I cannot  remain silent any longer regardless of how I may be judged.  There are many points that have  not been mentioned in the press,  and although most of the residents of the area are aware of  them, there may be a goodly  number of people who have  moved-in in later years who are  not familiar with what has been.  1. The Elphinstone Aero  Club built the airport and has  worked maintaining it ever since.  That the Club turned the airport  over to the Villages of Gibsons  and Sechelt for one dollar so ,  that Dominion Government  Grants could be obtained for  improving the flying facilities.  Since the beginning the Aero  Club and many other residents  have donated thousands of  dollars in labour and machinery  work towards the development of  this very worthy community  asset.  2. When the Aero Club turned  the airport over to the said  villages, they were promised  that there would always be a  place for their clubhouse and a  place to park their planes.  3. When the runway was  being paved two years ago and .  the D.O.T. was here, the club  asked about a spot for the clubhouse we were ready to build  and a parking place. We were  told to pick out our spot and go  ahead and build it, and that is  just what we did.  4. That the club members  did all the extra clearing and  slashing that the D.O.T. asked  to have done to improve the  safety of the approaches, and a  lot of other work that they were  called on to do to keep the cost  of paving within the allotted  budget.  5. That the lease in question  whether signed or not will make  absolutely no difference to the  aerial activity at the airfield.  6. That since St. Mary's Hospital was built at Sechelt, there  has neyer been one complaint  about aerial noise from the doc  tors, staff, or patients to the best  of our knowledge, even though  the approach to runway 11.  (one, one) takes you almost  directly over the hospital.  7. That three years ago when  we were flying a 1000 ft. A.S.L.  circuit there were no complaints.  Now that we are flying 1300 to  1400 ft. A.S.L. circuit trying not  to annoy anyone, we are creating  a problem. One can only assume  we are working in the wrong  direction.  8. That I object most emphatically to this group calling themselves C.A.R.E. C.A.R.E. is  a project that is very high in my  opinion and that I support, and  I would hate anyone to think for  one second that I supported this  group.  9. That if the aircraft were  descending at the rate of 700 feet  per second as stated in one  local paper, I could appreciate  their concern.  Editor's Note: Guilty! It was of  coarse ��� momentary aberration  -rather than an enduring misapprehension.  Now it has been said that those  with a gift of gab never know  how to wrap it up, so before  anyone starts drawing conclusions, I'll wrap it up.  Len Wray  Gibsons, B.C.  Water  Editor:  Recently I received in the mail  a circular letter regarding Gibsons Municipal water resources.  This letter was drawn up by a  group of concerned citizens who  fear that our entire water system  and all of our water resources  are in danger of being given to  a government that operates beyond our boundaries.  I notice from a report on a  Village Council meeting in this  last Coast News that George  Cooper, long time school principal here, also asks questions  about this proposed giveaway.  Despite what Dayton and  Knight may say as "facts" about  water, the people of Gibsons  should not give their hard earned  water system and all our water  sources to anyone.

The eardrum-  grating yowl of steel worrying  through wood is definitely one of  my least-favourite sounds somewhere down there with chalk  scratching on blackboards - a  real nerve-scraper of a noise  especially when its flung at you  almost-incessantly down the  entire course of an eight-hour  shift. Some of those oldtimers  must have calluses on their eardrums and maybe their brains.  The work doesn't win any prizes  either. I shudder at the memory  of the Eburne Sawmill green-  chain: those horrific planks'  clanking remorselessly at me to  be manhandled off somehow  and pivoted on to piles with a  knack I hadn't mastered and  never would. Or toiling beside  a work-obsessed lunatic in the  highspeed planer-mill; trying to  match his maniacal pace as two-  by-fours vomited at us down that  merciless pell-mell belt. Then  there's the smell of wet hemlock  which bears a startling resemblance to "that of overripe- excrement. And of course there's  always the chance of somehow  touching one of those whizzing  blades and ending up with missing fingers or worse. Sawmills  and 1 are definitely incompatible.  As a result, I don't have many  firsthand sawmilling yarns. My  initial foray into the workforce  however, happens to have involved this trade.  I was about two months short  of seventeen when I found myself working at the small and  decidedly-gyppo mill, then in  operation at Twin Creeks between  Pages  from a Li fe-Log  Peter Trower  Port Mellon and Gibsons. There  was no road in those days and the  place was accessible only by boat.  Actually, the mill had been  started by my stepfather Tyrgg  Iversen, just prior to his death  three years before. But we no  longer owned shares in the place  and I was strictly an employee.  My job carried the designation  of slab-man and was the most  menial in the place. It involved  coping with the slabs of rejected  bark and wood at the tail-end of  the production-line; cutting them  into manageable chunks with a  trim-saw and throwing them on  a fire. Many of the logs had  been in the water for a long time  and the slabs were frequently  wet and heavy. It was out and out  bullwork that I performed be-  musedly and with small enthusiasm for the coolie wage of  seventy-five cents an hour. If  this is what awaited me when I  finished school, I thought glumly,  I was sure as hell in no hurry to  graduate.  The crew of about nine men  were a nondescript lot for the  most part but relatively good-  natured. As the youngest and  greenest member, I'd half expected to be given a hard time  but they were surprisingly easy  on me. If they had a figure of  fun, it was a bearded, and  rather fancy-spoken University  student called Price. They dubbed him 'Jesus' for his somewhat  saintly appearance and subjected  him to considerable ribbing which  he absorbed philosophically being  DRIFTW  PLAYERS  III])  will hold a meeting in  Elphinstone Secondary School  MONDAY, OCTOBER 24th - 7:30 p.m.  OBJECT:  To discuss the production of  Twelfth Night by William Shakespeare.  (A poster will direct you to the room)  a philosophy major. (Unlike the  others, I rather admired the  erudite Price but it puzzled me  what he was going to do when he  got his degree. I imaged him  hanging up. his Philosopher's  shingle like a doctor - a latter-day  Socrates dispensing aphorisms  for a fee.)  Definitely, the most colourful  character in camp was Pirate  Sam, the boatman. Sam was a  grizzled, guffawing old reprobate  who had rumoredly deserted a  wife and half a dozen kids to become a prospector. He was a  drunken, humourous man who  stayed in a small cabin by himself and kept a continuous brew  of something potent on the go.  There was always someone dropping by there in the evening to  sample Sam's yarns and a touch  of his pop-skull wine. The first  thing that struck your eye when  you entered his unruly shack  was an enormous laboratory  bottle on a table beside the boar's  nest of a bed. It was full almost  to the brim with fermented some-  thing-or-other and a long rubber  hose ran from the carboy-top to  the head of the bed. I guess old  Pirate Sam just lay in the sack  and siphoned himself off a slug  whenever the spirits moved him.  Sam had a sort of running  feud with the sawyer, a dark-  haired, sometimes-impatient man  who tended to take life a bit  too seriously. I think the main  issue was Sam's drinking although this seemed to have little  deleterous effect on his work.  There had been tension building  between the two men for some  time and one afternoon, it came  to a head. Ainslie, the sawyer  had gone to Sam's cabin to  apparently berate him over some  matter. The exchange erupted  into a furious argument and  the voices from the cabin grew  loud and angry enough for us  all to look up and take notice.  Suddenly the door burst open and  Ainslie rushed out, hotly pursued  by an irate Pirate Sam, brandishing an axe. Ainslie was spare and  fleet-footed and the old boatman  quickly abandoned the chase,  panting.     "You  better  stay  to  hell out of my cabin from now  on!" he hollered and stumped  back to his lair with the look of  a man who had proved his point.  Oddly, there seemed to be no  noticeable repercussions to this  incident beyond the fact that  . Ainslie and Sam ceased speaking  to each other altogether.  The summer dragged on and I  toiled away disgruntedly on my  slab-pile. It was onerous, unrewarding work but I was only  committed to it for the length  ofthe school vacation so I stuck  it out. The mill was powered  by an erratic Pelton Wheel  generator that occasionally went  on the fritz and provided a break;  but mostly it was the same monotonous grind day after day. We  went home on weekends but the  weekday evenings were long and  boring. I spent them mostly  lost in sciencefiction stories and  sometimes, in trying ineptly to  write one of my own.  Near the end of August when  my   period   of  noisy   servitude  was   almost   up,    the   familiar  routine    was    interrupt.. 1    one  morning   in   a   rather    drastic  fashion.    Most of the logs the  mill cut were beachcombed wood  of uncertain quality.   A big, half-  waterlogged fir came up the jack-  ladder. It was peavied into position on the carriage and Ainslie  began the first cut.  I'd managed  to get caught up on the slabs and  was   standing   by   the   cut-off  saw, idly watching.    Suddenly,  there was a whining, whanging,  . clattering. sound and everything  slammed to a halt.    I had no  idea what in hell had happened  but I ducked instinctively anyhow.    It was as well I did for  there must have been steel teeth  flying   like   shrapnel   all   over  the bulding.    The headsaw had  struck a drift-bolt buried deep  in the fir and sheered off half  its cutters.     There  was   much  shouting   and   cursing,   mostly  from    Ainslie.        Miraculously,  no one had  been  hit  by  that  barrage of deadly fragments but  the mill was effectively shut down  until a new headsaw blade could  be brought up from Vancouver.  We were laid off for a few days  and since school was starting in  a couple of weeks, I didn't bother  coming back.     The  experience  had  effectively   soured' me   on  sawmilling.       With   one   brief  exception, I never tried it again.  r  September 6 to October 29,1977.  i9*��orM^>  Check over our fall crop of major brand name  1    .appliances ��� ail at reduced prices.

The Rescuers is a film which  should appeal to children and  adults alike.  The second offering of the  week represents a considerable  change of pace from the charming  animations of the Disney studio.  It is the film The Fanner starring  Gary Conway who is a returned  veteran of the Second World  War who discovers that his  prowess as a killer is more useful  than his skills as a farmer. The  film is shown under the restricted classification and is recommended for those who like their  action films hot and heavy as  Conway disposes of a gang of  criminals in particularly gory  fashion.  Playing opposite Conway is  the beauteous Angel Tompkins.  The Farmer will be shown at  the Twilight Theatre Sunday  through Tuesday, October 23rd to  25th.  General Notes: With Mars  squaring both the Sun and Mercury, a generally irritating week  is indicated. We should all  attempt to be more diplomatic  in our dealings with others and  avoid hasty judgement and  actions during this configuration. Those of you planning to  start projects at this time would  be wise to postpone them until  next week. On Saturday, Venus  aligns Jupiter bringing a much  needed sweetness to the close of  a somewhat sour week.  Babies born mid-week will be  fearlessly energetic but will have  to learn patience, tolerance,  and tact. Be gentle, kids.  The following prognostications  are made by assuming that the  Sun sign is also the Rising sign.  If you know your Rising sign read  it first, followed by Sun sign  forecast for more accurate trends.  Good luck.  ARIES (March 21 ��� April 19)  Just as your relationships were  beginning to show a marked  improvement, others seem to  snap at you for no apparent  'reason. Avoid the purchase of  an extravagant domestic item.  TAURUS (April 20 - May 20)  An explosive argument is very  likely but will help clear the air  for improved conditions, especially on the employment front.  Sentimental messages touch you  as the week closes.  GEMINI (May 21 ��� June 21)  How your spare time activities  have been affecting your financial  situation is the subject of fierce  debate. Sincere peace offerings  are indicated.  CANCER (June 22 - July 22)  You could be the grump of  the zodiac this week with strong  words flying about the home. It  is pointless to force any issue at  this time. July 20th birthdays  should remember that patience  is a virtue.  LEO (July 23 - Aug. 22)  Avoid   preparing   or   signing  important documents. Do not  respond to any troublesome correspondence or messages until  next week. Much care needed on  short journeys.  VIRGO (Aug. 23 - Sept. 22)  Arguments over money are  inevitable but more practical  schemes are best launched next  week. Old household gadgets  blow fuses or break down at this  time. Acquaintances are irritating.  LIBRA (Sept. 23 - Oct. 23)  Your position and honor is  challenged and you retaliate with  a rare Librian outburst of ill  chosen words. Your self respect  is restored. ��� Others make a-  mends.  SCORPIO (Oct. 24 - Nov. 22)  Hair-raising or violent dreams  are simply trying to warn you to  take more care of yourself and  need not be feared. Prepare for  three weeks of quieter activities.  SAGITTARIUS (Nov 23 ��� Dec 21)  A financial misunderstanding  now requires you to draw the  line between true friends and  self-seeking . acquaintances.  Work being done on group projects   should  be   put  aside  for  awhile.  CAPRICORN (dec. 22 - Jan 19)  Messages and phone calls  have to be handled with tact if  you are to maintain your present  achievements. A loved one's  bullying approach should be  ignored.  AQUARIUS (Jan 20 - Feb 18)  Irritating work associates may  force you to state your philosophy  and intentions in a manner they  might regret. Stick to your convictions. Long distance communications are annoying.  PISCES (Feb. 19 ��� Mar. 20)  Having to deal with other  people's paper work or financial  problems is again frustrating.  Social activities are likely to be  spoilt by impulsive speech or  unfavorable comments. Children  around you are particularly  annoying at this time.  ����vt^ r*4IUj%l  WHAT DID YOU THINK  OF THE FERRY STRIKE?  SID SPAIN  "I think it has been  brought about by not negotiating meaningfully and  that it will probably remain  that way. It's cut down on  some supplies, but not  essentials like bread and  milk - things that-you really  need. I know it will cut my  holiday short, but I'll have to  do something."  BERTSHERLOCK  "I personally feel that the  union has a justifiable beef,  if you want to put it that  way. I think myself that  when a deal like this has to  go on for two years, they  have to go to these lengths,  not only deprives themselves  of wages, but it's an inconvenience to the public  plus the loss of revenue to  the ferries. The whole bit  and what you hear on the  news right now if it is true,  that they may settle this by  tonight, in a matter of a few  hours. I would say the onus  has been on. the corporation  all along."  H.F.HARRIS  "I'm not too worried about  it.    Over the years, I think  it applies to the whole atti  tude of labour. I think that  labour has suddenly realized ���  that in the last 20 years,  since the end of W.W. II,  in 1945, they have been  building up. They are  making today so much more  money than they did 30 to  50 years ago, I remember  that, but material things  cost money. The unions  have gone too far in their  demands. We see that as a  result in higher prices and  inflation. In my opinion, we  are on the verge right now  of the worst depression we  have ever seen and it will  last longer, it'll be harder  to get out of and it will have  been caused by the desire  of the bosses to make more  money, in their profits and  the unions to get higher  wages. You young people  should stay in school and get  your education."  MRS. REGANS  "I do think they shouldn't  be allowed to strike in the  future   because    it    is    an  essential service."

Books  with  John  Faustmann  ys#��*Mmw^^^^  Elvis What Happened?  Ballantine Books  Being out here off the west  . coast of Vancouver Island, fishing  out the last of the commercial  salmon season, seems to have  . very little to do with the subject  of this column, my review of  Elvis What Happened? All I  can offer in the way of explanation is that downtown Tofino isn't  exactly the book capital of the  free world. There are three  places that sell books there - two  of them are grocery stores and  one . is a sort of countercultural  organic apple stand and meeting  place for the sons and daughters  of the Aquarian Age. I found  the book in one of the grocery  stores, sandwiched in between  the Harlequin romances, the  westerns, and the latest in  psycological self-help-guide-to-  happiness texts.  It's taken me a few days to  read Elvis What Happened?,  doing a few pages at a time as  I sit in the wheelhouse of this  38 foot trailer. It's proved to be  an entertaining but rather  tawdry book, and although I  have never been one of Elvis  Presley's greatest fans I can't  help but think he deserved a  better biography than this one.  The product of taped interviews with Elvis's three bodyguards, it's essentially a shallow,  mindless recounting of a superstar's rise to fame. What makes  the thing so pathetic is that it's  so very predictable. It begins  with Elvis as a high school lad,  and it follows him through the  first struggling years, playing  auditoriums throughout the  southern U.S., and then on, to  thati first television appearance,  and on again, through the first  records he made, until finally,  ,it brings us up to 1976.  t At. the., beginning., Elyis Tt was  just a good ole southern boy.  He worshipped his mother (who  was to die at the early age of 42)  and he always referred to his  father as "Daddy". Later, when  Elvis had become enormously  wealthy and his father Vernon  was in charge of expenses,  Elvis, having gone out on a  buying spree, would say: "Just  give the bill to mah Daddy."  It might be said with some  accuracy that Elvis never grew  up. Col. Tom Parker guided his  career from start to finish,  making all the major decisons for  him. His father handled the  finances, and that left nothing  for Elvis to do but enjoy what  he'd earned.  It's the typical tale of a single  person who is suddenly surrounded by incomprehensible wealth.  Elvis gathered a few friends  around him, later to be dubbed  "The Memphis Mafia", and together, they were like a bunch of  spoiled adolescents with unlimited lunch money. Presley bought  cars for everyone, and then  motorbikes, and then horses,  and he and the boys would spend  their time pulling all sorts of  pranks and playing .games.  They had fireworks battles, played a lot of touch football, and  shot off guns a great deal. Often, .  when a television programme displeased Presley, he would shoot  out the TV set with one of his  handguns.  This rollicking behaviour went  on for years, all over the country,  wherever Elvis was appearing.  Women, liquor and mood-altering  pills were always in abundance,  and he and the boys were constantly promoting one endless  party. In the early days of his  career it was mostly high-spirited  but essentially innocent fun.  As the years progressed, however, it degenerated badly. The  idol of millions, Presley's mind  became warped by all the adulation he received. He began to  think he could heal people by  touching them, that he had  special divine powers, and that  he was invincible.  Descriptions of his life at this  period are extremely depressing.  Presley was not, apparently,  all that bright, and the people  around him (including the three  sycophants responsible for this  book) took care never to disagree  with anything he said. As a  result Elvis grew further and  further from reality, and aided by  all the .drugs he began taking,  he would often become violent  and completely irrational. Secretly, Elvis always wanted to be an  undercover policeman, and he  collected police badges from all  over the country. In an absurd  and heavily ironic scene, Elvis  once got a Federal Narcotics  officer's badge from Richard  Nixon.  Elvis Presley's private life  was not all that inspiring. The  assembly-line sexuality, the pill-  popping, the goodhearted gift-  giving (he gave away Cadillacs  as if they were jelly beans) the  gun collecting, and the nasty  emotional scenes he perpetrated  were all, somehow, as dumb as  the movies he made. And if  his public life was a success, his  private, life was ,-a,total failure.  The 15 year old girl he brought  from Germany to be his wife,  left him. The high school buddies  he surrounded himself with became abject toadies, and although  he had millions of fans he had no  personal friends.  In fact, the reason this book  has come out is owing to the fact  that he fired his bodyguards. He  did it in such a cold, impersonal  way that they sought, through  this book, to not only cut into  their share of the Presley pie,'  but to get revenge on the man  they felt betrayed them. As a  result, we get all the tawdry inside information about Elvis  Presley. It's nothing that we  might not have expected.  You cannot take a simple  country boy from Tennessee,  load him down with unlimited  success, pile him with virtually  unspendable amounts of money,  and not expect him to be changed  by it all. Success ruined Elvis  Presley, but that in itself is not  very remarkable. So many young  performers, suddenly made  famous and wealthy seem to end  up on the bathroom floor. The  tragedy here is that a great -  talent, a man whose voice moved  millions, died alone and friendless. Even his three closest  friends, the men responsible for  this book, ended up trying to be  revenged on him, and this is the  ��� CBC Radio  World-travelling entertainer Brian Barnes bring two of his one-man shows to the Sunshine  Coast this week. On Wednesday, October 19th he will be seen at Chatelech Secondary  School in presentation of Dylan Thomas' masterpiece UNDER MILKWOOD. On Thursday,  October 20th he will present the Pickwickians at Manor Farm at Elphinstone Secondary  School in Gibsons.  Freethinkers Pulpit  by Andy Randall  "Education is a powerful  thing and best got the hard way.''  I'm sure Mark Twain must  have said that, if not, I invented  it. My peripatetic friend just  over the ravine by me says I  come up with lots of weird  phrases. But that's his story.  If I can be excused for lining  up with lovable Mark Twain,  he and I had at least two, maybe  three, things going for us. Life's  grindstone just kept grinding  away until our dumb wits took on  a keenness. Secondly, we were  both too stupid to know when  we'd bitten off more'n we could  chew.  Mark got educated on the  ever-ready-to-blOw-up paddle-  wheelers and the tricky shoals  of the meandering Mississippi.  My education? Doon belaa in  the pit man! (Down the mine)  And other things like being shot  at. The moral of all this? It is  hard for me to accept that you  can have a worthwhile education,  one that has a built-in guarantee  that you will come out top-side  from an emergency, unless .you  have gone through the fires of  hell, morally, physically, or  spiritually, maybe all three.  Now teachers, and such nice  people, don't get touchy. This  edification, or education, I speak  of is something else. It is of life  in the bloody raw, of experiences  that yo-yo you from a seventh  heaven to the scorching of a  million hells.   Up, down, in, out. ~  saddest part of the story.  If you were an Elvis fan, this  book wili not prove to be very  enjoyable for you. It's a tale of  wealth, boredom, stupidity and  mindless extravaganza, and it's  told from the point of view of  men who themselves were not  very perceptive. It does not  capture any of the magic that  Elvis once had. Instead, it takes  us to the party long after everyone's gone home, and introduces  us only to the refuse and the  waste that was left behind.  Real Elvis fans should wait  for the authorized biography to  come out. It will keep alive the  myth they've nurtured over the  years, and it probably won't  sully the memories they have of  this famous man.  As for myself, if this sort of  success should happen to call for  me in the near future - tell them  I've gone fishing. I mean, you  can do anything, but lay off my  blue suede shoes.  (That sounds like the beat of  the goose-steppers outside my  solitary cell, back in the 40's  in Poland.) But you do come out  of it all - and just take my word  for it - with a dimmer view of  the veneer of civilization.  You wake up one morning,  finding you have become' an  amateur psychologist, realist,  scientist of sorts, and a first  cousin to that man from Missouri,  "You got to show me!" Like a  ghoulish pathologist you dissect,  and analyze, and tabulate, every  Tom, Dick and Harriet, even if  it has to be your own wife, or  best girl. Dangerous stuff, take  it from me. But after the initial  pathological meandering of your  mind you do get to see the light  at the end of the tunnel. You reshape your thinking into more  flixible patterns, ideas of give and  take take over from your old  insular generalizations of the  whole scheme of life, and things.  The whole realm of freethought  lies open now, and it embraces,  (oh that's a lovely word) covers  really, just about anything and  everything that ..comes, within,  your range of thought and ex  perience. Chances are you will  never be an Einstein, but your  clarity of thought has so improved  that you wonder sometimes if  someone else hasn't got into  your head, and you hope he just  stays there.  What else can you say about  all this education? Well, you  have somehow lost the old tolerance for humbuggery in any form.  You want facts, truths; not sub-  truths, half-truths, nor the claiming of myths for authoritative  doctrines. If you can not get  factual data, at least you want,  and will not take less, material  that you can have a better claim  on your credibility. Like Socrates you ask and search for  specific answers to specific  questions. Generalities, and pat  answers bore you. Ready to  hand scriptural verses and  phrases sound now to you like  some old recordings. But when  you get to the meat and potatoes  of Christianity, meaning the  basics, the Gospel stories, and  they alone, then Faith has the  .most solid foundation to build  all else on.  >^&_'  *0X&<J.Z.l!U.Xt..  Bridge  by Jim Weir  As a follow-up to last week's  bridge column on the Stayman  Convention, this column is a  bidding quiz.  Holding the following hands,  and with no interference from  the opposition, what do you" respond to your partner's one  notrump opening bid?  1. S KQ32 H 432 D AJ32 C 32.  2. SQ65432H32D432C32.  3. SAJ5432H32DKJ2C32.  4. S AJ432 H 32 D KJ2 C432.  5. SK32H32DAKJ32C432.  6. SAKHAJ32DAJ32C432.  ANSWERS:  1. Bid 2C - This response  initiates the Stayman Convention.  If your partner has a 4 card major  suit, he now bids that suit at the  two level. If he does not have a  4 card major suit, he bids 2D.  Your next bid will be 4S in response to 2S or 3 N.T. in response  to 2D or 2H.  2. Bid 2S - A response of  2D, 2H, or 2S requires that your  partner passes. These bids indicate a weak hand with length  in the bid suit.  3. Bid 4S - Your partner's  1 N.T. bid has promised at least  2S and 16 points. This should be  'ample support for a final contract  of 4S.  4. Bid 3S - This bid shows a  hand containing exactly 5S and  is forcing to either 3 N.T. or 4S.  5. Bid 3 N.T. - The probability  that 5D is a better contract is  slim and there is no adequate  way of investigating it.  6. Bid 2C - 6 N.T. is a good  contract, but if your partner holds  a 4 card heart suit, then 6H will  be better.   A 2C bid will investi-  - gate his heart holding.  by Maryanne West  Beginning this Saturday, CBC  radio will bring you up to date  with the drama, the serious exchanges, the mundane and the  frivolous which takes place in  Parliament in Ottawa.

Nutritionists and  dietitians will tell you that the  typical Canadian diet can be  easily supplied by the supermarket. But how many of us  are typical?  Do our individual tastes and  styles perhaps distract us from  good nutritional health? Are big  food companies and some health  food products literally shafting  us in our belief that their wares  are so good?  October 17 - 23 is officially  Nutrition Week in B.C. This  topic has come into vogue in the  last few years and diets of all  sorts are being adopted for  many reasons. Whether the  origins are philosophical or  staunchly theraputic, the book  stores are filled with literature.  It is common knowledge that  ailments such as ulcers, diabetes,  hypoglycemia, obesity on to  severe heart disease are becoming common. In such an  affluent country it is ridiculous!  In the orient, medicine used to  be practiced from the point of  view  that  the  government  im-  Ife  mm  �����  bursed the physician for' every  person who was kept healthy.  The doctor actually paid patients  who became ill and advised  their clients very efficiently  about their food habits. This  was hardly a society for junk  foods.  We have all got to start taking  more responsibility for our  health. I wonder how many have  reached their optimum potential  for physical well-being. Sadly to  say, compared to Scandinavia,  for example, not too many.  Would you like to clean up  your diet? B.C.

Work-  Harmony Ha I Happenings  men cut down the last two remaining maple  trees of the group that originally ringed the school  Well folks, here we go again  to give you some of the news  that has been going on irk our part  of the Sunshine Coast. As you  know we had the Heritage Dance  Pageant here on October 1st and  what a show that was. It was  just out of this world to see so  many senior citizens doing all  the intricate dances of days gone  by. It was a pleasure to see,  and the costumes, all made by  the dancers themselves were just  fabulous. The ladies and gentlemen in their fancy costumes  and wigs created quite a stir  and the dances themselves went  through without a hitch,, not  even a teeny mistake. Great  credit is due to all who took part  in the pageant and here's hoping  we will be able to get them back  again.  Thanks , must go to Lloyd  Scrimshaw and his workers for  doing such a great job in ticket  selling and helping to get things  set up. It was the largest crowd  I have seen at one time in Gibsons  apart from" the high school  graduation. There must have  been over 500 in the gym so you  can see there were not many  empty seats. So all I can say is  the very best of luck to all the  Heritage Dancers, may you long  continue in your good work and  keep making people happy.  We also had a demonstration  of our own "Sunshine Coast  Country Swingers" who don't  need to take a back seat to anyone, they are a great group of  entertainers and we are proud  to have them represent us  wherever they go. As you know  they do the more modern style  of square dancing but if put to  the test I bet they could go back  to the 1400 era as well.  Forty-four of us went on a bus  trip to Bellingham on October  5th   and   we   had   a   wonderful  time, we left on the 9 a.m. ferry  and arrived back about 8 p.m.  The ladies had a wonderful time  window shopping. The men  browsing around doing what  comes naturally. We had a very  congenial bus driver by the  name of Dick Gray. I don't know  how they do it but S.M.T. seem  to get the best drivers on the  road and we congratulate and  thank them for it. After driving  a car for years it was a pleasure  to sit back and let someone else  do the driving and know that you  are in safe hands. So thanks  again, S.M.T. and especially  Dick Gray for a wonderful trip  on a beautiful day. The Weather  Man co-operated to the fullest  extent and if he has any control  over the weather we thank him.  Also to the Customs and Immigration officers at both points  on the border, they were real  gentlemen    in    every    respect.  Carpet bowling resumes on  Wednesday October 12th and as  usual Bingo on Thursday, starting  at 8:00 p.m. Hope to see you all  there. Our. Fall Tea and Bazaar  will be held on Saturday, October  29th in our hall at 2:00 p.m.  so please turn out in full force  and give us your support. The  ladies are working very hard and  I personally thank them for their  wonderful efforts.  Jim Holloway, Eiver Jorgensen and Karl Fraser will be in  charge of the plants and flowers  so if you want to have a nice  garden next spring be sure and  visit the plant table and if there  is anything about plants that you  wish to know, contact any of  these gentlemen as they are all  experts in gardening and will  give you the information you  desire.

There  always seems to be something  to do in a garden, but if you like  gardening I am sure you must  derive a great deal of pleasure  out of it. I am no gardener myself but what must be done, must  be done. I had a little more  success this year than I have  had in the past three years, but  I put that down to having a little  more time to work on it and I  believe it paid off. Kay is the  gardener in our family, she seems  to have an uncanny way with  plants. I don't know if she talks  to them and tells them how pretty  they are, but it doesn't do much  good when I talk to them, because  they just fall over and wilt. I  guess I don't speak the right  language.  Now we have to get down to  business and discuss our winter  activities, 1 think, and this is my  personal opinion, that we are not  getting enough use out of our  hall for our own personal use  as we should be.. We should have  more activities going and I think  at our next general meeting in  November that this matter should  be discussed thoroughly. I know  that many of our members don't  like to come out at night and  therefore we should have some  daytime activities. There is a  brochure on the bulletin board  of what they do in a branch over  on the Island, take a look at it and  see what you can come up with.  I know there are lots of things  that we can do and I hate to see  the hall standing empty when it  could be used. It was built for  our use so let's see what we  can do about it. It doesn't seem  right to me that after the project  committee did so much work on  it, all volunteer, they are entitled  to a better break for their efforts.  There will be a meeting of the  executive on October 18th at  2:00 p.m. (all members please  take note.).  Well, I guess this is all the  news for this time. I wish to  extend my personal thanks to  Vi Lynds for her wonderful  effort in making the Bellingham  trip the success it was. It is a  thankless job and very disheartening when you get cancellations  at the last minute, but Vi came  through wonderfully as she had  some names on standby and was  able to contact these people and  get a bus load. Thank you Vi  for a wonderful job.  Don't forget the date of the  Fall Tea and Bazaar, Saturday  October 29th at 2:00 p.m. Be  sure and mark this date on your  calendar. Hope that all our  members who have been on the  sick list are up and around again  and feeling perky. Don't forget  the next general meeting on  Monday, November 7th as this is  the day you vote for your executive for the next year. I would,  like to see a full turnout for  this meeting as it is one of the  most important ones of the year.  ANN NAPIER  Dear Ann:  I'm wondering if you can be in  love with two people at once?  I feel the same thrill and affection for two men. They seem very  different in their appearance and  occupations but the emotion I  feel is the same. How to choose  between them? I feel good, but  puzzled.  On the Fence  Dear On:  You'll be surprised to learn  you're not the first one to be in  this state. If one can love mother,  brother, grandmother, children  and friends then it is no surprise  to me that they can be in love with  two people at once. There seems  to be no end to the amount of  love one can feel but let me say  one can mistake attraction and  arousal for love. Time takes care  of this, attraction fades but love  goes on. Until you feel the  "in love", it's hard to tell the  difference. We misplace love  sometimes and when our vision  clears a little, we realize the  person's true worth. It seems  love dies when the person we've  placed our confidence in fails  us in some way, or we've implanted character and virtues in  their image that weren't there.  They may suit someone else,  but suddenly we know that we  were wrong. I believe we need to  respect a person and admire them  to stay in love. So if you maintain these two affairs, one will  emerge the winner - at least be  dominant.  Dear Ann:  What do you think of a woman >  going to see a man strip? You've  heard of female strippers with  tassels on their breasts, twirling  them in each direction? Guess  where Mr. Carlos' tassel was?  You guessed.

Is there a regulated  height? I find they are just  above the trees. Did any plane  owners write to you and explain  why they are over houses and  why they aren't higher?  Ducking  Dear Ducking:  I've heard from no plane  owners! Of course with the  ferry strike we expect to hear  more air traffic. There is a regulated height. I called Tyee Air  service and asked them - it seems  that it is one thousand feet over  a populated area. This may get  sticky when one describes their  district. I observed this morning  that the float planes seemed to be  beyond the shoreline and over  the sea. It cuts down on the  noise of the motors for most of  us. They of course must land and  take off so the height would depend on how far from the airport we are. The airplane is  doing yoeman service these days.  Private planes should watch  themselves more as it is purely a  selfish pastime and I can see no  reason why they should lay their  trip on others.  Dear Ann:  We are going to the Hallowe'en  Masquerade dance in Gibsons.  How does one go about hiding  one's identity without the hot  mask? I find it impossible to  keep one on til midnight. When  you know so many people it's  more fun if you can be anonymous.  Planning Ahead  Dear Planning:  The most obvious alternative  is makeup. Makeup can be fun  and change your appearance  quite.as much as a mask. Pick  a character or costume then: see  what props you need. Hats and  wigs are great as disguises.  You can pad yourself here and  there, glue on eyelashes, ears-,  noses, and there's no limit except  your imagination. See you there!

Coast News, October 18,1977.  New Hockey team Impressive  by Ed Lands  Impressive, that's how the  ideals and ambitions of Peninsula Gales' general manager  Randy Rayment struck me, in a  recent interview. In the Gales'  first year of operation, a season  covering at least twenty weeks  and forty home games, exposure  would have to be the keynote.  To expose the local public to  a calibre and style of hockey far  surpassing the now defunct  commercial hockey league.  That is defintely in the past.  Requiring the local players to  live up to the responsibility of  playing on an organized team;  travelling to foreign arenas  where they must behave as goodwill ambassadores while at the  same time winning at the game  they love best, in a fashion becoming to the "All Canadian"  image. Hard work must be considered a trait of this image and  the Gales' training camp was a  good example of this quality.  And the  quality is expected to  be high. Any Gale I spoke to  was glad "camp" was over  merely because of the strenuous  schedule of training handed out  by coaches Bill Rayment (Randy's  Dad) and Jerry Dixon of local  haircutting fame.  The Gales want to set a positive  example for adults, parents and  kids who are interested in sport,  and hockey in particular. Up to  now, in the brief three year history of hockey on the Sunshine  Coast, local hockey aspirants had  little to look forward to even while  playing in the older minor leagues. Inconsistent refereeing  is one malaise which sticks out in  my mind. Now an example can  be set in this area as well as only  approved officials will be calling  the Gales'games.  Minor hockey is an integral  part in the scheme of things. It  is the building process which is  all important to any sports team.  So it is natural for the parent  team, in this case the Gales, to  support  local   minor   hockey  as  this can only benefit them in  years to come. In addition to  coaching clinics, Randy Rayment  feels his organization can help  monetarily.  The local Chambers of Commerce seem to think highly of the  Gales what with visiting teams  coming in with their own supporters, an estlhiated 80 fans per  game, a quarter million dollars  of tourism will have been spent  over the hockey season. The  hockey team itself will be "a good  vehicle for tourism" carrying  with them on the road pamphlets  and maps of our area.  How does the Peninsula Gales  Hockey Club get its operating  money? Believe it or don't!  Season ticket sales have been  excellent. In fact, if you have  any intention of seeing the  games, sitting down, you'd better  get a move on as season tickets  have dwindled to a mere forty  from an original 360. Forty  games for $30.00. Neither  players   nor   team   coaches   nor  staff receive remuneration from  the Gales'. All members are  self-sufficient or are students.  Local merchants have bought  advertisments in the 32 page  programme available at each  Gales' home game. The program  will include team rosters, player  profiles, hockey news etc. Interest in the Peninsula Gales is  not exclusive to the Coast.  CKVU-TV Lucky 13, has confirmed they will be video taping  at least the first two Gales'  home games for viewing , the  following week. Depending on  operating difficulties and costs  this coverage will continue.  As for predictions, Randy was  not about to go out on a limb.  "We're going to win our share.  We are definitely out to win  every game.' Many of the teams  we're going to play are above  our heads. That makes us underdogs and there is nothing like  an upset victory and/or a close  game to drum up interest in the  team."  At press time only Kelly Bodnarek was not playing in the first  game in Seattle this weekend,  he has knee problems. Sean Van  Strepen had a splint removed  from his right thumb a few days  ago and* team doctor Stan Lubin  gave Van Strepen the go ahead  to play. Ivan Dixon has been  bothered with knee ailments,  but not enough to keep him home  from the first ever Gales road  trip.  Gales blow Huskies out of rink  by Ed Lands  The University of Washington  arena was buzzing with excitement Saturday night as the Peninsula Gales set to face off against  the Huskies. For the first time  in history the University of  Washington football, Huskies  had defeated Stanford University  that afternoon 43-25. The scene  was bedlam. Two and a half  hours later, with the aid of  ���Dave Lamb's six goal performance, the Gales silenced the  opposing hockey Huskies 17-2.  A rather auspicious start for the  DMA VMr frMMt Ctr NtM Vm  (MOatlk*?  fledging hockey team.  Nervousness seemed to dominate the Gales in the opening  period which ended tied at one  apiece. Bobby Dixon accounted  for the Gales first-ever goal  while the Huskies' MacBeth  replied in a period which gave  no sign of the eventual outcome.  The second frame saw Dave  Lamb pop in four tallys while  single markers went to Hacki-  nen, Robby Williams and Warren  Dixon, bringing the score to 8-1.  The third period was much the  same with Lamb netting his  final pair and singles going to  Rick  Ion,   Dave' Mewhort,  Ivan  Dixon, Mike Sutherland, Roy  McBrien. Hackinen, and Warren  Dixon who rounded out the  Gales' scoring. McNau counted  a token goal for Washington.  In nets for the Gales first two  periods was Sam Casey who  allowed one goal. Darcey Blake  got some practice in for the final  stanza letting one slip by him.  Lamb's 6-goal performance has  m-^m ^J,-* mmm�� ^__>^_^^__* _^_? ^0 ^^ ^m^ ^0 *mm+^0 __fe ^fe  *^> ^J* *J*> ^^ *^ ^^ ^^ W^W^ ^^ *f* ^^T* "*^* ^^  N.D.P.

Crossbow  makers meet  Local man Robin Allen and  Trevor Oram travelled to Hunts-  ville, Arkansas earlier this month  as the first Canadians to attend  the American Crossbow Association's annual gathering. Robin  Allen has been a crossbow maker  for many years. Both he and  Oram are employed locally by  the B.C. Ferries.  As the first Canadians to attend  American Crossbow Association's  meeting, Allen and Oram report  that they were treated royally.  One hundred and twenty-eight  Canadian flags were flown in  Huntsville in their honour.  Huntsville is a town in which  the crossbow is king. Businesses,  streets all take their name from  the mediaeval weapon. Among  the highlights of their visit was  their meeting with 80 year old  crossbow maker George Stevens  who is known as the Father of  the Crossbow in North America.  Stevens lives at 400 Crossbow  Road in Huntsville and with Pop  Bailey and Buckshot Wilson was  a pioneer in the popularization  of crossbow making in North  America. Stevens' father was  Nobel Prize-winning scientist  and his mother was a member of  French royalty. He himself is  only the second North American  to gain membership in the prestigious and highly selective Guild  of St. George which is the oldest  trade guild in the world, formed  in 1068.  At the other end of the chronological scale from Stevens was  fifteen-year old Beth Linam, a  Huntsville schoolgirl who was  this year's Grand Champion at  the contest held during the course  Robin Allen, bowmaker of Gibsons, is pictured with George Stevens, the Father of the  crossbow in North America. The picture was taken in the octogenarian's workshop during  the visit made lately by Allen and Trevor Oram to the North American Crossbow Championships held recently in Huntsville, Arkansas, i  Gales win again  tide tables  18  JAMIESON AUTOMOTIVE  886-7919  DL01342A  1970 Ford Custom  2-Door H.T., 302 Auto.

The opposition had a  45-5 win-loss record last year,  but this did not deter the Gales  from winning 3-1.  The Americans displayed good  passing, playmaking, and shooting as well as being rough and  aggressive. This competition  had to be taken more seriously.  The Gales simply never gave up  skating against the big Junior  squad.'  Late in the first period Gales'  Stu Orpen slammed one past the  Americans' netminder, Mike  Sutherland and Ivan Dixon assisting on the play. A little over a  minute later Northwest's Holmes  tied it up with Monday and Jones  assisting.  The second period was scoreless. The roughly fought game  saw the Gales getting 8 of the  12 penalties. It seemed as though  anytime the Americans were  penalized they intimidated the  Gales into a penalty so as to  even up the man-power.  The coaching staff recognized  this in time  to  see  the  Gales  Z  HOCKEY TICKETS  Tickets for two to the Vancouver Canucks home game  Wednesday, November 2nd. Canucks vs Toronto.

About five minutes  later Gray got the insurance  tally, Kennedy and Lamb assisting.  According to reliable sources  the Americans were stunned,  to say the least.

Robin  Allen placed second in the  Hunting secion of the competition.  Another remarkable character  at the Huntsville meeting was  sixty-nine years old Evelyn  Crowe, house-mother of. the  University of Fayetteville. Last  year Ms. Crowe got a seven-  point buck from her hunting  position high in a tree.  Allen bubbled with enthusiasm  as he recounted the story of his  visit to Arkansas. "I've been in  correspondence with George  Stevens for seven years," he  said, "and it was wonderful  finally to meet him. He is a  wonderful and genuinely kindly  man." Stevens is the inventor  of the repeater crossbow and he  gave the local men permission to  demonstrate the weapon at next  year's Sea Cavalcade. Allen  was also made a director of the  American Crossbow Association.  As a reciprocal gesture Stevens  was named honorary member of  the Mediaeval Society with the  title Grand Master Balistarius,  the latter being a mediaeval  term meaning crossbow maker.  Both Stevens and Allen are  presently writing books about  the crossbow and the meeting  of these two, the elderly American expert and the young Canadian expert in this unusual craft  was an occasion which meant a  very great deal to both men.  , Allen said that the Canadian  Crossbow Association will^.be  holding their championships  sometime next month and all  interested parties should contact  him at 886-7029.

The Elphinstone Wanderers  "A" team, sparked by Graham  Chapman and Dave Neuman,  defeated the chippy Latinos 3-2  at Admac Park in Vancouver in  a game played on Sunday, October 16th. Both teams played  uninspired football for much of  the game with the Wanderers  playing their best ball in the  beginning and ending twenty  minutes ofthe game.  Frustrated by the Wanderers'  domination in the last twenty  minutes, the Latinos showed a  marked lack of sportsmanship  with many holding, kicking, and  charging fouls. To cap this,  they refused to give the team  cheer and the customary exchange of handshakes. This team  is an exact opposite of the Vancouver Trojan team which is  noted for its extraordinary  sportsmanship.  The first goal in Sunday's  game was scored for the Wanderers by Steve  Miles followed  by two goals by the Latinos.  Graham Chapman tied the game  pass from Dave Neuman thirty  minutes into the second half.  This seemed to spark the Wanderers and the same two players  connected for the winning goal  shortly after that. Neuman was  playing his first game of the year  following an early season injury.  Graham Chapman has scored five  goals in the team's five games  Playing in this game were  Ken Verhulst, Jan de Reus, Art  Dew, Duncan Campbell, Gary  Davies. Bjorn Bjornson, Dan  McKay, Ken Bland. Dan Baker,  Dave Neuman, Steve Miles,  Graham Chapman, Nick Bergnach. The coach is Terry Duffy,  Jan de Reus is the manager,  and the trainer is Keith Evans.

How did you choose your  career? Think back a moment -  did your high school help you  directly in career preparation and  job placement? Only you know  how much was due to motivation;  making the right choice at the  right time, and how much occurred by chance.  Kory /Regan, a well known  and respected B.C. teacher who  left Victoria school district last  June to be a counsellor and  devlop a career education program at Elphinstone Secondary  School in Gibsons, says that  students today are feeling an  increasing segregation between  themselves   and   the   world   of  dents found was a heavy emphasis on such matters as interview techniques, how to prepare  a resume, making an application  without friends tagging along,  some knowledge of the business  world, punctuality and correct  speech.  But most important was attitude.  A year ago, education minister  McGeer challenged educators  to make more efficient use of  the years of schooling our students receive. One suggestion  was to reduce the number of  years necessary to complete  public school requirements,  but later studies concluded it  would be wiser, at the present  time, to make more efficient use  ofthe senior secondary years.  Elphinstone    Principal    Don    Montgomery  pictured with new staffer Kory Regan.  is  work. "They feel unneeded by  our technological society."  "I count myself very fortunate  in having attended school at a  time and place, Chiliiwack,  where teachers were our friends.  By example . in lifestyle and  dedication, they provided us with  the motivation to aim high.  "Such teachers," she says,  "are still in Chiliiwack and in  all our schools, quietly available and trusted by students.  That's why leadership has to  come from the schools in career  education."  Kory gave a two-hour seminar  titled, "Briding the Gap" to  trustees at the BCSTA convention in Vancouver last April  and told trustees that to leave  career education to chance in '  our present complicated society  would surely indicate an abdication of our joint responsibility.  Her locally devloped career  exploration course in Esquimalt  Secondary has become a model  pilot for the Ministry of Education and is now used in schools  all across Canada.  A Local Inititive Project organized by Kory and reported in  January .1976 shows that 627  firms co-operated, 570 agreeing  to take part in a questionnaire  on the project.  "The need for the project  shows clearly in the response  of these people," she says.  What the employers and stu-  More recently, the Ministry of  Education, in co-operation with  the Ministry of Labour, school  boards and colleges is embarking  on a series of pilot projects in  the fields of apprenticeship, pre-  career and advanced academic  courses.  But these pilot projects should  not be confused with career  education.  Career education is not training for a specific job.  Career education is an opportunity to increase self-awareness,  and to assess one's own strengths  and weaknesses in a realistic  but non threatening atmosphere.  She is concerned that as the  months and years slip by, hun  dreds more of our secondary  pupils are being, as she says,  'disgorged' from our schools,  'ill-prepared for what lies ahead  of them, when all the time we  have the expertise to help them.'  The important viewpoint of  a teacher shows clearly in the  address Kory gave to the trustees: "My first concern has  always been and always will be  'how does this decision affect  the pupils?' In other words, to  be valid, decisions should be  based on educational values,  not expediency."  Success for" Kory Regan in  her career education work flows  directly from her personal capability and her high credibility  with her fellow teachers.  She taught in Mission, Chiliiwack, Penticton and did a stint  in Montreal as an exchange  teacher, before settling into  Victoria in 1957 where she was  active in the local association,  serving as president in 1967-68.  She has served teachers in a  variety of ways, including four  years on the BCTF Representative Assembly, as a BCTF representative on a department  comittee establishing school  accreditation procedures, as an  AGM delegate for several years,  as an ombudsperson for Vancouver Island 1972-75 and as a  president and journal editor of  the B.C. Social Studies Teachers'  Association.  Last March at the Annual  General Meeting, Kory Regan  was honored with an honorary  life membership in the BCTF  for long and outstanding service  to the federation and education  generally. The award cited her  pioneer work in career education.  She says career education is  a process that should be available to all: the young and not so  young, rich, poor, urban, suburban, the employed, the unemployed, the handicapped, the  disadvantaged of any kind, and  favoring no ethnic groups.  So far, she says, everything  from the ministry has been  geared to post-secondary -the  Weingard, the Goard, and the  Fans commissions all focused on  post-secondary education.  "I believe  the  children   and  the curriculum in K-12 must be ;  thie centre of our concerns';' all |  other parts of tfie system" should  be  Schools of the District  #2 Langdale Elementary School  Coast News, October 18,1977.  as   support   ser-  regarded  vice."  She says that placing the  major emphasis and funding at  the post-secondary level means  that it is too little too late for  the majority of our pupils who  never reach post-secondary  education or training.

Like "I meant to get  some change but..." Or "Sure I care about kids but..."  Those little spooks and goblins know that 300  collected in their orange and black boxes  often means the difference between life  and death to a small, friendless human  somewhere in this world.

Help them to show their concc rn for  the world's destitute children by  putting a few coins in the UNICEF  box. That kind of caring is desperately  needed in our world today.  Last week we took a look at the  one-room school at Egmont at  the top end of the Sunshine  Coast. At the other extreme  is the five-room Langdale School,  two blocks off the Port Mellon  Highway and about a half mile  past the Langdale Ferry Terminal  towards Port Mellon.  Charles Passmore is the principal of this elementary school  which enrols the 116 students  from grades one to seven with  another twenty youngsters attending the kindergarten class for  half of each day. Passmore has  been principal at the school since  its inception as a five-room school  twelve years ago. He moved to  the Sunshine Coast from Victoria  in 1965 and spent the first three  months serving as principal of  the now defunct three-room  school at Port Mellon as well  as the two-room Langdale school  while construction was being  completed on the present facility.  In January of 1966 he took  over the completed Langdale  School and has been principal  there ever since. Passmore heads  a staff of five full-time teachers  and three part-time helpers.  The staff as a whole has shown  great stability. Division One  teacher Ian Jacobs has been a  member of the staff at Langdale  Elementary for the past seven  years; Mike Mostovich is the  new comer of the full-time,  teachers and is in his third  year; Gertrude Miskofski is in  her tenth year on staff and Mrs.  Alma White has also close to  ten years service at the school.  "I am very fortunate-in my  staff," says Passmore. "They  are very conscientious and hard  working. The parents, too, in  this area are very supportive  functioning in volunteer capacities as library aids, learning  assistance aids, and helping in  the kindergarten."  Joan Robb is in her second  year as the Langdale kindergarten teacher and the other  part-time workers are Mrs. Wet-  more who is part-time learning  assistance teacher, Shirley  Hooker, part-time librarian,  and Marilyn Robinson who  teaches Passmore's Division  Three class in the afternoon to  allow him time for his administrative duties.  Principal Passmore is most  enthusiastic when he talks about  the work of his teachers. He  particularly singles out the work  of Ian Jacobs, who in addition  to his Division One duties has  coached the Langdale Girls  Volleyball Team to some notable  successes as well as sharing the  soccer-coaching duties with  Mostovich. "You know," says  the Langdale principal, "in eight  years at this school Jacobs has  never missed a day and after  volleyball or soccer practices he  loads up his van with Port Mellon  kids who couldn't participate in  extra-curricular activities but for  him." In addition to his volleyball and soccer practices Jacobs  devotes many weekends taking  his volleyball team to tournaments throughout the province  and also runs the Sea Cadets at  Sechelt Scouts start up  The Beavers, Cubs, Scouts and,  Ventures of Sechelt have begun  their new season. The Beavers  are 21 in number and meet  Wednesdays at St. Hilda's Hall  from 3:15 to 4:15. If a small  Beaver approaches you with a  toothy smile, he may be asking  for coat hangers. This is an  Eager Beaver Project to raise  funds for badges and supplies.  If you have coat hangers for a  Beaver, please phone 885-2503  or 885-2300.  The pack of Cubs consists of  2Q boys and they meet Mondays  from 6:30 to 7:30. : These boys  will be working as a pack on projects and individually for badges.  They are under the leadership of  Nora Robinson and Al Midnight.  The Scouts and Ventures meet  Thursdays from 7:00 to 9:00 at  St. Hilda's. The Ventures is  a new programme this year under  the leadership of Gordon Leary.  Boys 14 years and over may be  Ventures. There is room for  more boys in Scouts and Ventures, so if your son is interested  please phone 885-2507 or 885-  2626. An,; active outdoor programme has been planned by  their leaders.  ��� :   All boys will soon be selling  ;their Scout Calendars, also taking  part in a bottle and newspaper  'drive on October -29th.   oia.l  the school.  Another area of major enthusiasm that Passmore touches on  in his primary department which  is under the supervision of Miss  Miskofski and Mrs. White.  "In all the years I've worked  with them," he said, "I've never  walked into their classrooms  without finding them working  busily and enthusiastically with  the children."  The principal also has words  of praise for the School Board.  "We are as well-equipped as  any comparable school in the  province," he says. "The Board  has been very generous."  On the day that the Coast  News reporter visited the Langdale School coincidentally a class  of Langdale students under the  supervision of Mike Mostovich  visited the Coast News office.  It was part of a field day in  which along with the visit to the  Coast News office they visited  the bank, the post office, the  Gibsons museum, the fire department, the place where the Gibsons AU-Nighter wood stoves  are made and others.  It was obvious as the class  came through on their visit to  the Coast News office that the  children were delighting in their  day of exploration outside the  classroom. As it turned out,  that field trip was an example of  the little extra that the Langdale teachers put into their work  which makes their little school  one of the most pleasant, surely,  in the province.

There are many issues at stake  in the Canoe Pass condominium  debate which comes to public  hearing this Sunday at 2:00 p.m.  in the Madeira Park Community  Hall.  There is the issue of whether  or not big outside money is going  to be allowed to take another  large step towards making Pender Harbour a prime area of  exploitation.  There is the issue of whether  or not we are going to allow increasing intrusion on the harbour's navigation routes by  unnecessarily     long     wharves,  especially in the Canoe Pass side  of Gerrans Bay where obstruction  of this kind has already become  severe.  There is the issue of density  and the accompanying issue of  pollution. In spite of misleading  statements to the contrary made  by certain members of the Regional District planning department, the Canoe Pass developer  is placing 14 homes in a property  that normally would only have  supported 4 or 5.

Reports of the years'  activities and election of officers  will be held.  The meeting will be open to  anyone who would like to join  the Society and thereby aid in  promoting its objectives.

Agnes Labonte  President  Youth  Editor:  Today at 2:05 a.m. on leaving  the local movie house in Gibsons  1 saw another patron - a nine or  ten year old boy stagger out,  having been waked up by his two  companions, two slightly older  boys.  He had a sweat shirt on, not  enough to be warm in at 2:00 a.m.  They started walking down into  Gibsons. I decided to write to  the paper as. the child is coping  with a consciousness from his  parents where something must  be presented to them to help  them comprehend this situation.  My questions to the parents  are simply:  What was this little boy doing  at two horror movies at 2:00 a.m.,  with only- two, (fourteen at the  most) children as companions?  Why wasn't he in bed? Why  wasn't he warmly dressed? And  what do you think that program  of entertainment at that hour  was doing for him?  For him, that's my concern.  I have considered perhaps the  older boys took him with them  rather than babysit him, but any  of them can't be benefiting from  being out so late.  If it was your child please  make sure he is in bed at a  reasonable hour and if he must  be out late, make sure he's  warmly dressed. ���  Treat him with respect, he  cannot make these decisions for  himself-yet.'  This open letter is the most  gentle way I can ask you to consider this situation.  Hagen Beggs  Gibsons  Editor:  I just wonder why more people  without transporation don't  patronize our fine helpful Minibus?  I have had occasion to use it  a number of times during the  past few weeks and have been  amazed that so few people make  use of it for it was almost empty  most ofthe time.  It must be that few know of  the service this little bus will  provide - that it will pick you up  at your door (or almost) and deliver you safely back again.  One may make an appointment for anything necessary such  as a visit to a doctor, dentist,  chiropractor, to the hospital or  nursing home when you may want  to visit with a sick relative or  .friend. And all for nothing.  Of course you may want to send  a small donation for such prompt,  courteous and friendly service:  The phone number is in the book.  Maybe a little judicious advertising would be in order.  Thank you Mini-Bus.  Mrs.G. E.Webb  The clinic  Editor:  I have seldom been home since  April, too busy chasing the rapidly vanishing fish. I did keep  intermittently in touch with local  affairs via a few copies of your  excellent paper. At my age and  it being fall I suppose I should  go seasonally dormant and just  hibernate quietly till March but  I see the subject of our very own  Pender Harbour and District  Health Services Society medical  clinic is much in the correspondence.  I have often shouted about  the negativeness of dwelling on  our pasts, still there are certain  facts that keep burning a^hole in  my 3 a.m. "doubting hour".  Thinking back over 25 years I  can still feel the pains in my  sacroiliac after a day of helping  a large local voluntary work  crew pack sections of the nurses  home off a scow and up to its  present site. Above what is now  Sunshine Coast Inn in Garden  Bay and used to be our original  St. Mary's Hospital.  Bill Scoular and I helped bolster the incomes of several  chiropractors after those back  cracking sessions. It was all very  much worthwhile but eventually  we needed a new and central  hospital. I feel that the decision,  though very upsetting for many  of us to take, to locate the present  St. Mary's Hospital in the geographical centre of our Sunshine  Coast was correct. I supported  the move because (1) the old  building was a fire danger and  we didn't have our excellent  present fire department (b) the  Port Mellon community and in  particular its economic base,,  the pulp workers' union supported us 100% yet had to transport  their accident cases 60 miles to  Garden Bay. Too far.  We had heated, often boiling  local disputes here over the move  and I think Bill and I were on  opposite sides but like the Irish  we enjoyed the scrap, and of  course both-remained convinced  we were right - Al Lloyd changed'  horses on the issue in midstream.  We also had a promise from  the Sechelt doctors' medical  clinic for regular servicing of our  area provided we supported the  new St. Mary's. After I saw  and attended the skacky office  they provided us at Madeira  plus infrequent staffing and compared it with the type of facility  they gave Gibsons I began to  feel that I might almost admit  that Bill Scoular could be right  and I was wrong. Our citizens  sure showed good sense under  Jim Tyners able leadership in  getting our very own clinic with  our own doctor. I would urge  all our Area "A" people to fully  support it by full usage and  voluntary help.  Two years ago there were frequent public meetings in Port  McNeil, Hardy, Alice, Alert  Bay and Sointula -1 attended one.  This area is a parallel to ours  only even harder to serve medically. The meetings were to decide on a large new central  hospital for that area.

John H. Daly  Garden Bay  Students  Editor:  Vice-principal Jack Pope's  statement "We are very proud  of our students at Chatelech High  School." (Coast News Oct. 4th)  leads me to wonder if Mr. Pope  has walked through the lane that  was cut through St. Hilda's  Churchyard to accommodate the  sewage system from the High  School.  This lane though St. Hilda's  Cemetery is a filthy disgusting  mess of garbage' put there by  these same students Mr. Pope is  so proud of.  It might be of some help if  the Village Council or School  Board would place gargage disposal containers in the lane but  the lack of which is no excuse for  the littering.  I would like to know if a work  party is going to be sent from the  school to clean this mess up or is  it going to be more taxpayer's  wasted money that, will do thist  job, if indeed it is ever done?  I would also like to know why  the litter laws are not being enforced? A stiff fine or two might  help.  I suggest that to carry on with  the marine theme Sechelt. has  chosen for naming streets and  also in keeping with the litter  infested mess Pilot and Cowrie  Streets have become in the one  year Chatelech High School has  been in operation that the names  of these two streets be renamed  more appropriately, Flotsam and  Jetsom Streets.

The developer will  have no trouble satisfying the  loose requirements of the Pollution Control Board who allowed  the infamous Vista Village permit  to dump directly into the sea  beside an oyster lease at Silver  Sands. This is a great worry to  homeowners along Oyster Lagoon  who know that 14 new houses  will daily produce 5,000 gallons  of liquid sewage which will run  off the lightly-earthed ridge and  in very short order end up in  surrounding waters. Either the  lagoon which is clogging up from  the sewage runoff already going  into it - or the shellfish beds -  already posted with pollution  warnings - could be harmed beyond hope of recovery by this  enormously increased runoff,  but the Regional District apparently finds the risk acceptable.  There is the issue of precedent-  once a condominium is established at Canoe Pass it becomes  that much harder to stop one at  Pope Landing or anywhere else  around the Harbour there's a  rocky piece of property the owner  can't get enough lots out of by  conventional subdivision methods. There is no doubt many  such properties exist.  But most of all the issue the  Canoe Pass condominium controversy brings us face to face  with is the question of neighbourhood  autonomy.      That   is,  the question of whether the  people who live in a given area  ultimately have the right to decide how that area is developed,  or whether some outside authority - in our case the Regional  District - ultimately has that  right.  The Regional District admits  that mail protesting the Canoe  Pass project has been unusually  heavy and the very great majority  of homeowners surrounding the  property have signed the petition  against it. In addition Pender  Harbour people have a history  of opposing multiple-housing  projects and indications are the  condominium principle is strongly  opposed by the community at  large.  Still, the project is rolling  ahead and many people close to  the heat feel its approval is a  foregone conclusion. Several  close neighbours of the project  have already decided their only  defence from the project is to  sell their homes and leave the  area. The Regional District  planner has said that the board  "most often takes direction"  from hearings such as the one on  Sunday, but that it is not bound  to go along with the decision of  the hearing. The rationale for  this is that not all the people  affected by the decision are  expected to be at the hearing.  In short, the only real chance  the people of the community get  to have a say about the fate  of the neighbourhood is the  hearing    and    the    board    has  Pender Ratepayers  questionnaire  The Pender Harbour and District Ratepayers' Association  has announced that it will circulate a questionnaire this week  dealing with questions of community planning in the Pender  Harbour area.  Association president Joe  Harrison said the idea of the  questionnaire is to determine  the feeling of the community  on growth, development, land  use and pollution. When the  results are in they will be presented to the special committee  working on Pender Harbour's  Official Settlement Plan.  Harrison noted that the Ratepayers' decided to conduct the  poll after they had submitted  a brief requesting the Regional  District provide the committee  with more study material and a  budget for researching public  opinion and no action had been  taken.  "The questions on our form  are quite general," Harrison  said, "but they will at least give  the plan committee an indication  of how the community feels about  basic things like the growth  rate. The community plan is  supposed  to  be  based  on   the  public's wishes but so far the  public's involvement in. setting  forth actual policy has been  minimal. We're trying to give  people a chance to make their  thoughts about the basic issues  felt and I hope they take us up  on it."  The questionnaire will be  mailed to homes in the Pender  area on Wednesday and Harrison hopes to have the bulk of  them back within a week.  "The return address is on the  form but we're asking people to  buy their own stamp," Harrison  said. "We're hoping for a big  return. Ten minutes'thought and  a twelve-cent stamp isn't much to  pay for a say in what's going to  happen to the place you live."  Questions cover such matters  as the size of lots, sewers, separation of land use, marina pump-  out facilities, multiple-family  versus single-family dwellings  and road development. There  are also three questions dealing  with three current issues not  direcjtly related to the community  plan: retention of the Pender  Harbour garbage dump, the  Goliath Bay booming ground and  the Canoe Pass condominium.

Given under my hand at Sechelt this 12th day of October; 1977.  M. B. PHELAN  RETURNING OFFICER  already decided in advance the  hearing isn't adequate and therefore can't be taken too seriously.  The public, it would seem,  has been effectively shut out and  the decision-making power has  been largely taken over by the  Regional District office in Sechelt.  It was not always thus. During  the first six years of Regional  District rule when Area "A"  was represented by Ratepayer  Association secretary Jim Tyner  the principle of local autonomy  was strictly maintained, the  power of the district planning  office was kept down to an expediting role, and the public  will was actively sought. Tyner  maintained a large and active  Advisory Planning Commission  which met regularly and he  worked closely., with the Ratepayers Association to keep the  community informed of Regional  District business. Under his  system a project as unpopular  as the Canoe Pass one would  likely have been exposed as such  and rejected at an early stage.  Since Tyner's retirement  there has been a strong centralizing trend in the Regional District and the hard-fought principle  of local autonomy seems to have  been largely abandoned, with  the result that we find ourselves  more and more in the position  of travelling to Sechelt to beg for  mercy. Current Regional Director  Jack Paterson, although he started off in Tyner's style, has  made only token use of his  Advisory Planning Commission  and appears to have become a  captive of the district's ruling  clique. The district planning  office has become increasingly  independent,   and   no  one   has  contacted the office for information on the Canoe Pass project  without receiving as a bonus a  firm lecture on the project's  virtues.  How far has this erosion of  autonomy gone? The upcoming  condominium contest will be a  very good indicator. The Regional District is firmly in support  of the proposal but the local  public is united and organized  in opposition.  The Ratepayers' Association  passed a motion opposing the  condominium at its last executive meeting and urges everyone  who values the community's  right to govern its own development to come out and make a  stand.

Law  Talk  by Gordon Hardy  ENVIRONMENTAL LAW  Number  4   in   a   series   of  five  columns.  In 1973 a bulldozer working for  the Stearns^Rober Engineering  Company pushed part of the bank  of the Thompson River into a  fertile fish spawning ground.  Thousands of fish eggs were  smothered by the silt. The company was charged under the  Canadian Fisheries Act, which  prohibits the dumping of damaging substances into waters frequented by fish.  Incredibly, the judge dismissed  the case because only fish eggs  had been damaged, not fish.  "This," says Greg McDade of  the West Coast Environmental  Law Association, "is a clear  example    of   how   judges    and  years", as claimed by the B.C.  Federation of Labour?  According to the West Coast  Environmental Law Association,  "Our legislation seems to be  reacting to crisis situations...we  tend to legislate after the environmental problem has occurred, rather than anticipating and  preventing it."  A pollution handbook published by the association cites  the case of the Fraser River,  which has been so unnecessarily  polluted by waste that it is not  safe for drinking and swimming.  The shellfish taken from the river  are not fit to eat.  "Legislation like the Pollution  Control Act, 1967 has done little  to reduce this pollution," says  the association. "Rather it has  set up a system where the govern-  government officials are apparen-   ment sells licences to pollute...It  tly reticent to enforce existing  laws against pollution and polluters."  Why is pollution control only  a "token effort" as claimed by  a recent report of the B.C. Federation of Labour? The report,  submitted to the provincial  government in April, charges  that, "our air, water, and land  continue to suffer abuse to the  detriment of the quality of life  in B.C."  Certainly, the laws are there on  the books. Apart from the common law. which to some extent  protects   private   property   from  has not yet declared a moratorium  on permits for the Fraser River,"  a move suggested by the B.C.  Federation of Labour.  "Sheer public relations, concerned as much with covering up  problems as it is with resolving  them." Vancouver lawyer and  environmental activist Tim Mackenzie views government action  on the environment with a skeptical eye. He says the much  heralded creation of Environment  Canada in Ottawa was "basically  a reshuffling of federal offices  under one heading."  Sometimes  the   legislation   is  environmental damage, there is   just   plain   dumb.      Under   the  Automotive Trade Pact signed  with the United States, the  Canadian government requires  Canadian drivers to buy cars that  are fitted with equipment designed to fight California smog  conditions.  The Institute of Environmental  Science and Engineering at the  University of Toronto reports  that the government made this  decision as a result of economic  pressure rather than environmental concern.  Much government concern  does seem to be little more than  window-dressing. Here, in B.C.,  air pollution provisions were included in the Motor Vehicle  Act. Yet prosecutions never  take place because the Motor  Vehicle Branch has  neither the  a battery of federal and pro-  fincial statutes which give  government agencies the power  to haul offenders into court.  The Canada Water Act, the  Canada Shipping Act, the Fisheries Act, the Ocean Dumping  Control Act, and others are designed to protect our waters from  organic pollutants like human  sewage and forestry wastes, and  from toxic pollutants like the  metal compounds produced by  industrial processes such as  mining operations.  These laws also prohibit the  addition of damaging mineral  nutrients like common detergents  and inorganic fertilizers. They  threaten stiff penalties against  ships that discharge garbage at  sea.  The air we breathe is protected  by the Clean Air Act, the Pollution Control Act, and others, on  the books at least.  The Land Act, the Land Commission Act. and the Pollution  Control Act are designed to protect wildlife and farm land, prevent undue erosion, and guarantee the restoration of lands disturbed by logging and mining  operations.  Finally, there are acts and  bylaws which should protect us  from noise and litter.  Why then the "signs of serious  environmental damage which has  occurred    in    the    past    dozen  staff nor the equipment to  measure motor vehicle emissions.  Even when the government  does take action against polluters, its penalties are so namby-  pamby that big companies simply  pay the fine and keep right on  befouling the countryside.  Most environmental statutes  have a maximum fine of only  500 dollars and even this is rarely  applied. Recently a big company  proved to have committed seventeen offences under the Pollution  Control Act was fined 200 dollars  for the offence on which they  were prosecuted.  Even when the law calls for  fines a little heavier, like the  Canada Water Act, or the Canada  Fisheries Act which allow for a  5,000 dollar fine, a peculiar  charity often seems to stay the  hand of justice. In 1971 for  example. Finning Tractor was  convicted of dumping oil in a  lake. The company was fined  750 dollars. This after two previous warnings.  It often costs less to pay the  fines than to take the necessary  steps to safeguard the environment. When, in 1972, a pump  broke down at the Columbia  Cellulose plant at Prince Rupert,  the company had to decide  whether to shut down or spill  the wastes into a bay. They  spilled.  Costs to the company were  $1,500. Estimated costs had they  shutdown were about $100,000.  Next: Some healthy signs.  What can the citizens do?

Members agreed that  these home-produced films, with  explanitory comments are far  more informative and intimate  than the mediocre types from the  various film distributors. The  scenes of exotic flowers, trees,  giraffs, flamingos, and the native  Hula dancers were new to those  of us who have never visited these  Pacific Islands. Future showings  will come from our own members  who will present films or slides  based on their trips, or on some  topic of their choice. From offers  already received, we are assured  of a good variety for sometime  to come.  On behalf of the committee,  president Bill Grose sought  approval of the members to  assess a fee of 50��f each to help  defray the costs of refreshments  and prizes required from time to  time. Where else could one find  a better bargain for an afternoon  of entertainment, activities, refreshments and fellowship for  50<f or even $1.00 for that matter?  It was passed unanimously.  Three new members were wel  comed to our group: Noreen  Spaner; Eileen Kelk; and Celia  Moore. We hope they enjoyed  themselves and continue to  come along and meet more of our  members and our activities.  Last spring, this news letter  was requesting "memoirs" for  a booklet on the early history and  pioneers of Roberts Creek and  area. The work has progressed  to a point that with a good wind  behind our sails, and a dash of  luck, it could be available by  December, so keep your ears  wiggling and eyes rolling for  further news.  Long, long ago, the Vancouver  World and Sun papers used to  feature Limerick contests in  which four lines were provided  with the fifth left for completion  by aspiring poets. This could be  an amusing feature at our meetings and stimulate the "cultural"  standing of our New Horizons.

The forum  will include information displays,  guest speakers, music, and  poetry. Numerous 'Habitat'  video tapes (available through  the Provincial Educational Media  Centre only) will be viewed on  world problems and, more importantly, solutions to these  problems.  The three objectives of the  Community Forum are to: encourage student and community  awareness of the world community's problems and solutions, to  promote student participation  in our local community, and to  provide the opportunity for  community involvement in the  school.  Awareness of the World Community will be stimulated by the  study   of   Habitat   video   tapes  Soccer  In the fourth week of coast  league play the Pender Harbour  Bananas trounced the Redskins  5-0 in a rough game played at  Madeira Park.  The Bananas were again a  well-disciplined unit and the  scorers were John Mercer with  two goals, Larry Campeau and  Red Hawley with one' each,  and Peter Kenny contributed  a beautiful head goal.  The star ofthe game, however,  was goalie Ray Moscrip who  made some sparkling saves  enroute to his first shut-out of  the season.  illustrating world problems and  solutions. The tapes discuss  the problems and solutions of  the Urban Frontier, Rural Stagnation, Population, Rich and  Poor, Life Support, Environment,  Energy, Shelter, Land, Settlement Planning, and Spaceship  Earth.  There are not less than four  social studies classes involved,  with other interested students,  five teachers, one club and the  Alternate School. The social  studies classes will be setting up  information displays and producing their own video tapes. The  French club will be selling food,  and the Alternate School will be  building booths. Guest speakers  have begun to be contacted by  students already.  Most importantly at this point  we wish to incorporate community involvement in the forum.  If there is anyone or any group  or organization that wishes to  become involved, please contact  Mrs. MacKown through the  school to volunteer your help.  We cordially invite the whole  community to set up displays,  come to speak, read poetry or  contribute music.

During Mark Twain's days as a newspaperman  he was editor of a small Missouri paper. One  day he received a letter from a subscriber stating  that he had found a spider in his paper, and  asking if this was an omen of good or bad luck.  Twain replied: "Finding a spider in your  paper is neither good nor bad luck. The spider  was merely looking over our paper to see which  merchant was not advertising so that he could  go to that store, spin his web across the door,  and lead a life of undisturbed peace ever after  ward."  will keep the spider away from your door.
