Meneely was present at the meeting  by invitation and agreed to answer questions from the floor.  Approximately twenty-five people were in attendance at  the Egmont Community Hall for the occasion.  Iris Griffiths, who had been instrumental in calling the  meeting, opened the proceedings by reading to those present  the account of Meneely's misfortunes which appeared in  the Canadian Weekend Magazine dated August 13th of  this year. Briefly, when Meneely turned his successful  Pacific Diesel Brake Company over to his elder son following  a heart attack in 1971 he determined to try his hand at  aquaculture - the farming offish - which was being studied  in practically every country in the world with.the notable  exception of Canada.  Members of the B.C. Ferry and Marine workers  Union are pictured on picket duty at the deserted  Langdale  Ferry Terminal.     So  far  the  union  officials report that there has been little interaction with the general public.  ***"-'  Ferry workers defy back-to-work order  The B.C. Ferry and Maritime  Workers Union, formed when  B.C. Ferries became a separate  crown corporation, last week  defied a back to work order issued  by Labour Minister Alan Williams. The union is attempting  to negotiate its first contract  with the new crown corporation  and first entered negotiation  v��r*fagnsf4tb. "The ferry workers'  hi. ve'Jbeen - without; a^oopipfBt3  since July 31st.  At issuejii the present dispute  is a fundamental disagreement  concerning hours of work. A  union spokesman said that the  corporation wants employees, to  work 1,750 hours'a year before  becoming eligible for overtime  pay regardless of the length of  individual work days. At present  employees receive overtime after  working a 7 Vi-hour shift. .  There are also problems to be  ironed out in seniority, manning,  and grievance procedures.  At the time of going to press  the union was expected to continue its defiance of the government order at least until Tuesday  morning at 9:00 a.m. when mass  meetings are being planned with  the membership in several  locations on the coast.  Union statement  - ���^ >��� -i  , -The ,B.��. _Ferry & Marine workers today met in mass  r meetings throughout the province, and have decided virtually unanimously that they will not return to work until a  collective agreement is reached. It is our hope that the B.C.  Ferry Corporation will make a concerted effort to begin  mature negotiations in order to reach an agreement as  7 quickly as possible to avoid any further inconvenience to  the travelling public.  Don Lockstead1 contacted,, the  Coast News on-Friday October  7th to inform them of a telegram  he had sent to Charles Gallagher,  Jack Davis and Alan^WSKams.  "I urged the government* to sit  down and bargain "With the ..ferry  union in good faith,V Lockstead  said. "In my opinion, they fl*ive  notybeea bargaining in^.j^d  faith "in the past, arid they 'haye  been negotiating for twenty-tuo.  months in the case of the officers." '  "I also want the government  to supply the transportation for  essential services 7to the cut-off  areas of the coast who depend on  the  ferry  service.  In August of 1971 he purchased  property near Egmont on the  ^Agamemnon Channel and applied  X himself to his new project with  a pioneer's zeal. He acquired a  permit from the Federal Department of Fisheries, the first ever  issued, and purchased $500,000  /of equipment. He was also promised in writing every possible  assistance by the Fisheries De-  t$\ partment in the matter of acquiring the requisite eggs. This  promise was never kept. Meneely never did get a single order  for eggs filled to his satisfaction  despite the fact that his operation  proved to have a higher performance level in terms of freedom from disease than any of  the  government's   own   marine  research .stations. Finally to  circumvent the difficulties with  egg supply Meneely applied for  permission to construct, a simple  fish ladder which would enable  the salmon milling in His bay to  enter his gravel beds;.thereby  assuring himself of a supply of  his own eggs. The'request was  denied' and Canada's pioneer  fish farmer was  half a million  dollars poorer. and out of business. '���' '..;-7  ���  With this .recapitulation of  the position, completed the  meeting ; was - thrown open for  questions which. Meneely had  come prepared to answer.  Meneely was first asked if he  had received any government  grants.   His answer was that he  Egmont meeting  against Hydro spraying  Daly's motion read:  "Whereas  The    meeting    of   concerned    an   Gf  the potable   water   and  citizens which took place in the    salmon streams on the Sunshine  fegmont^Coinmumfy    Hall n So ^c^i^Jraixi J^~a,- 1hev higher^ bidev^mjjyi consistently  re-  question Al Meneely,df Moccasm    altitudes to the Gulf of Georgia;    ferfed to wrjttfeir dat*r tetters.  had received none - only three  hundred free fingerlings for research.  In response to a question from  the floor as to whether he would  start up again if he received full  government co-operation.  Meneely answered, "Our operation is now history. 1 will never  believe the. federal government  again. I had a written guarantee  of co-operation from W. R.  Hourston - then head of the  fisheries branch in Vancouver -  and got an income tax audit  instead." The assertion made  by Meneely in the Canadian  Weekend Magazine that the Income Tax Branch was used as a  weapon by the government has  not been challenged.  At 7 the October 5th meeting  Meneely expressed the conviction that large fishing companies are dictating and controlling some aspects of the  federal ��� government's fishing  policy. He said that excellent  sources of information had indicated that the large American  corporation Union Carbide had  been given permission through  its subsidiary Domsea to start  a marifarm on the Alberni  Canal, though there was no  documented proof of this as yet.  A letter to Meneely from a  fisheries biologist two. or three ;  years ago had said, "As you.know  our department has continually  and strongly advocated a "Canadian ownership" policy in all  fields." Meneely     doubted  strongly that any Union Carbide  undertaking would have majority  Canadian control since this was  counter to the company's policy  in other parts ofthe world.  Throughout the -meeting, with  the exception of the newly -  developing issue of Union Car-  Valley Marifarm about 'events  .surrounding the closing of his  fish farm also addressed itself  to the question of B.C. Hydro's  spraying of herbicide on the  right of way. A resolution made  by John Daly of Pender Harbour  was passed unanimously by the  October 5th meeting.  and whereas all these 'streams'  flow over B.C. Hydro power-  line'right of way, therefore be it  resolved that this meeting of  twenty-four concerned citizens  of the Sunshine Coast demand  from B.C. Hydro a cessation of  all future spraying anywhere on  the Sunshine Coast."  No satisfaction for;;;&$kjfcE.  Members of C.A.R.E. (Citizens Against the Rape of ttiej.  Environment) made theny second presentation to Sechelt  council last Wednesday at "the> regular meeting. Member  Mr. Jack Pope outlined in a brief C.A.R.E.'s three main'  .points of contention; (a) Council's selection of the representation to act on the joint airport committee, (b) Several  points in the lease, and (c) Their recommendations con^  cerning the lease. Council's representative for the airport,  Alderman Leitner, was felt by the committee to be in a conf  flict of interest situation by owning property-at the airport  and C.A.R.E.'s recommendation was that council should  appoint someone else.  Gibsons R.C.M.P. check this car which broke a telephone pole in two near the Chekwelp  Indian Reserve between Gibsons and Granthams. The accident occurred at approximately,,  10.30'p.m. last Friday m^^ of the car were taken to St. Mary's Hospital.  C.A.R.E. felt that there were  .certain ambiguities in the lease.  L The main points they made  ...were, in paragraph three of the  lease, responsibility for main-  . tenance of the airport had not  been clearly spelled out and  should be legally defined. Paragraph eighteen, regarding insurance, does not in their opinion  adequately stipulate where the  responsibility would lie in the  .eventuality of a claim, and paragraph nineteen where it states  that the lease may be terminated i  by the Municipal Clerk by giving,  written notice. This, they felt  should define more clearly if  it was meant that both or either  clerk had this option.  Labonte ^ no.   Metzler?  :   &t the regular council meeting held on October 4th, Mayor  ; Larry Labonte of Gibsons announced that he will be'seeking  election for another ternf^ mayor of the village^ Labonte  said that there are one or Wo matters he would like to  tidied up before stepping aside for a successor. 7 7  At the same time Alderman. Stuart Metcalfe announced  that he would not be running again for aldermanic office.  Metcalfe said that the only thing that had madehim consider  re-election was the unresolved question of the Gibsons  wafer supply. Since the'referendum vote scheduled for  next month would resolve that situation he did not see any  need for seeking re-election as alderman of the village.  The third party whose seat comes up before the voters,  Alderman Jim Metzler, was stlilf not prepared to say on  October 4th whether or not he would be running again.  Speculation has been that Metzler will seek to win election  to the Regional Board as director for Area 'E', which seat r  is to be vacated by present incumbent Ed Johnson.

Alderman    Metzler,'  house at Dougal Park with a new    -A-Please turn to Page Seven  The recommendations, other  than the one that Leitner should  be replaced, were to re-examine  the lease for further clarification  and possibly have it for one year  instead of ten in order to control "nuisance activities"; that  the Aero Club pay a realistic  price for the land; that a manager  be appointed to be responsible  for the policing of the airport;  finally that council send a brief  to the Ministry of Transport  requesting their investigation  into the traffic violations in the  area.  Mayor Nelson told the delegation that their points would be.  taken under consideration, and  moved on to the next point of  business.  The committee stayed at the  meeting and when new business  was brought forward, Dr. Berman  interjected asking why, when  other delegations had been given  answers, C.A.R.E. was being referred to a later date. His main  concern was that while council  was deliberating over the C.A.R.E. recommendations the lease  could be signed, and he wanted,  but did not receive any assurance  that this would not happen.  In other business, council was  informed that Mr. Crippen had'  paid for the burning of the debris  on  the  hydro  right  of way  at  Seaside Village, and Mr. McKenzie the owner of the modular  . had received a building permit  to use on an adjacent lot.      \  An .application .by Mrs. Gib/-  bons for a nursery was! initially  turned down for lack of parking  and the likelihood of vandalism.  Mrs. Gibbons-spoke up7bn'her  own behalf pointing out to council  that the construction of ahursery  would be of fibreglass, negating  the worry of vandalism, and  that there was adequate parking  facilities. Alderman Kolibas  felt that these points may have  not been made clear at the beginning and it was recommended  that the clerk, Mr. Roy the  planner, and Mrs. Gibbons  arrange a meeting to look into  the matter further.  Two applications for subdivision Were received!  Mrs. Macfarline made application to divide her property  at the east corner of Reef and  Shoal. This was turned down  pending the construction of an  access road along the edge of  her land. Council suggested to  her that a way to do this could  be to aquire a piece of land on  the adjacent property as this  would enable her to put the road  through.  In the same area another  proposed subdivision was tabled  until the drainage situation could  be looked into in greater detail.  Mr. Ted Osborne's request  for a 33 foot road allowance on  D.L. 1472 was also tabled. In  the meantime, the village and  Mc Osborne will find the proper  channels to go through and report  to the next general meeting.  Mr. George. Floros, owner of  the Parthenon Restaurant received approval from council  for a "holding bar" with the  ���Please turn to Page Eight  government memos, etc", which  clearly - showed the fisheries  position to be totally contradictory.  In reply to a question from the  floor which asked what could be  done to help.  Meneely replied,  "I    really -didn't    come    here  looking for- help, but to inform  you so.maybe.this type of thing  won't happen again.''7  : When asked if he still thought  that.. the   type   of   fish-farming  operation    that, he   ,had    been  engaged in was still viable given  government   co-operation,    Me-  neely7rep1ied: "Yes. and it woulid^  benefit both sports and commercial fishermen by increasing the  available stocks of fish."    Commercial fishermen in the audience  saw no threat to their livelihood  in this type of activity.  ������'ir.  Meneely expressed the opiiiiof  that the provincial govemitterl-.-  should have control of the fisheries since the distance from  Ottawa left the Fisheries Branch  in Vancouver, virtually autoi  mous. He doubted however that  Ottawa would relinquish comrol .  easily.  Meneely was asked if disease  was a problem in a hatchery.  He replied, "Whenever you increase the number of a species  in an artificial environment this  is something to. watch out for,  but ours was almost totally clean.  In fact our permit, #1,' says we  were to report and shut down if  an appreciable disease occurred.  A few large hatcheries, say like  the government one at Capilano,  have a much greater potential  for disease than a number -Jsjf  small ones like ours because  all their eggs are in one basket.-!��?  Meneely offered the opinljgi  that fishermen, both com menyjl  and sports, should stop fighting  each other and unite because  their problem was a comrnoS  one - no fish. "The woods 3r.  , dustry has been the FedeS)j5j  Fisheries whipping boy long  enough," said Meneely. "StKe  they cause damage to spawning  areas but the real problem ht&  been .poor management by ttfp  government." 7*-"*  A fishermen's union representative present said that he would  put this topic on our order paper  at the next union meeting.  By unanimous vote the Egmojit  meeting voted to recommend  that representatives of all concerned organizations should he  asked to meet together wijh  other interested individuals to  consider all pertinent aspects" of  the fishing industry, including  Tconservation .and aquaculture.  Or fish-farming, in our-ace^u-The"  meeting invited participation  from commercial fishing unions,  sports fishermen, rod and gun  clubs, and. community clubs.  The .proposed date for such a  meeting would be October 19th  and the likely site would be the:  Madeira Park Elementary School.  The conclusions dntwn by rlijr  October 5th meeting were thi|:  .1.    There was no firm goverjf-  ment    policy    on    aquaculti_r��:  2. That small producers like (Q��  Moccasin'Valley Fish Farm ajge  being   7 unfairly      discouragett:  3. That aquaculture will becomv  increasingly important to peoj>_��  in the fishing industry; 4.

It is difficult not.to sympathize with the ferry workers in this most  recent dispute, however. The licenced  officers have been without a contract  for twenty-two months and in its attempt  to radically alter the rules which govern  overtime the B.C. Ferry Corporation  seems to be flying in the face of a historic  commitment on the part of organized  and salaried workers in favour of the  approximately eight-hour day.  One can but wonder why, with a contract expiring on July 31st, the parties  concerned don't even sit down to the  bargaining table until after the contract  has expired. Surely it should be possible  to begin,negotiating a few months before  expiry in the hopes of effecting smooth  and continuous service.   Are the officers  of the corporation under unreasonable  pressure from a government which wants  to make a name for itself as economic  wizards of thrift? Is there an attempt on  the part of the government and the ferry  corporation to break and discredit this  union in its fragile youth? It is known  that they would prefer to have the  licenced officers unaffiliated with the  unlicenced.  There is no doubt that the trade union  movement is sometimes guilty of excess  but, since it is almost inevitably the  unions that are blamed by the general  public when negotiations break down,  one cannot help but wonder if the precedent-setting demands about the payment  of overtime made by the corporation  and the intransigence with which they  cling to them are not tactics designed  to discredit the ferry workers union.  Corruption?  There are several disturbing aspects  which linger about the affair of Moccasin  Valley Marifarm. It is not just that an  honest to goodness Canadian pioneer  of energy, ability, and vision with an  initiative which would seem to be in tune  with the future developments of the  fishing industry on this coast has been  discouraged from continuing his work  in a heartbreaking fashion and great  personal cost to himself. Though, goodness knows this is bad enough.  Firstly there is Mr. Meneely's allegation, not denied by the fisheries branch  that the marine^biologists at the Nanaimo  Research Station are profiteering' from  knowledge and research data which they  acquire at public expense.    It's a nice  trick to draw a government salary during  the day doing research  and  acquiring  information then  turning yourself into  a  company for the  marketing  of that  information for your own gain.   It would  seem from  this  vantage  point that  if  Mr.   Meneely's  allegations  are  correct  and this is happening then there is more  than   stupidity   in   our   much  criticized  bureaucracy - there is blatant corruption.  Knowledge acquired at public expense  should be public knowledge.  Secondly there is Mr. Meneely's contention that the Federal Tax Branch is  used by various government branches as  a weapon to intimidate the public. He  has made this assertion publicly in a  national magazine and again it has gone  unchallenged. Is it niavete that causes  we Canadians to think that such corruption and mis-use of power can only  happen south of the border? If Mr.  Meneely is correct then it would seem  to be time for some major house-cleaning  of the civil service, and the sooner the  better.  Thirdly there is the apparent likelihood  that the business of farming fish on the  west coast of Canada is about to fall  into the hands of the giant international  corporations which already control so  much of our economy and our lives. If  the net result of the policies of the  Fisheries Branch in Vancouver is that  control of yet another economic activity  is falling from our hands and into foreign  control whilst Canadians such as Al  Meneely have shown not only the energy,,  the Inclination, and the requisite capital  to make a beginning on the enterprise  are frustrated and driven from the field  by the agents of the government that is  supposed to serve them then those  policies are quite simply wrong. Why is  it possible for a foreign owned company  not legally entitled to foreshore rights to  place an order for nine million salmon  eggs with the hatcheries operated by the  Canadian government and expect to have  that order filled when licensed Canadians  cannot get an order of a few hundred  thousand filled?  Al Meneely's dream of a viable fish  farm seems to have been most cruelly  and expensively frustrated by the hostility and lack of co-operation of the  Fisheries Branch. If, however, what  happened to him casts some light on  the condition of the Canadian Civil  Service and causes the rest of us to ask  questions which are long overdue, the  sacrifice of Al Meneely's dream may not  have been in vain.  from the files of Coast News  5 YEARS AGO  Driftwood Players, opening their fall  season, announce an evening of one-act  plays, two by Chekov and one by Shan.  Alderman Charles Mandelkau tendered his resignation as alderman to  Gibsons Council at Tuesday night's  meeting. His reasons for resigning  were personal.  10 YEARS AGO  The Ferry Authoritiy announces that  $800,000 will be spent during the winter  on Langdale terminal improvements.  Gibsons council maintains that the  Regional District board should locate its  office in Gibsons where the population  is.  15 YEARS AGO  Hurricane Freida created considerable  damage on the Sunshine Coast bringing  down power lines and causing highway  washouts.  Maintaining that lack of interest is  creating problems for Roberts Creek  Hall, the Community Association talks  about putting it up for sale.  The new post office in Gibsons at Winn  and Gower Point Road will be opened  October 29.  20 YEARS AGO  Overture Concerts organization  appeals for 30 more members to keep  the winter program going.  School board chairman G. A. Funnell  informs Gibsons Ratepayers Association  that there were 740 pupils in 1947 and  now there are 1,423 with the likelihood  more room will be needed.  25 YEARS AGO  Sechelt's Board of Trade is investigating making the area into an improvement district.  A plan to make Sechelt road a parking  place for ferry traffic is under consideration by Gibsons council.  Clowhom Falls, 1951. John Clayton captured these rushing waters  for posterity before the falls were transformed by a B.C. Electric  power installation. For a few years electricity for the Sunshine  Coast was generated here. After construction of the transmission  lines from Cheekeye, Clowhom became part of a power grid. Since  1961 it has formed part of the B.C. Hydro system. What though the  Falls be lost, All is not lost. The waters of erstwhile Clowhom are  not overcome. They are giving their all continuously in a grand  renewal cycle to sustain the toasters, mix-masters, carving knives.,  hair dryers, toothbrushes, amplifiers, billboards, and other essential  exponents of our culture.- Photo courtesy John Clayton and Elphin-  sone Pioneer Museum �� ���; ���..*... L.R.Peterson  Musings  John Burnside  They had a little dance in the  Egmont Community Hall last  week and chance and The Pied  Pear of the Pied Pumkin led me  thither. The Pied Pear etc. are  the two-man remnant of what was  originally a three-member Pied  Pumkin. Violinist-vocalist Shari  Ulrich moved away from the  group not too long ago and while  a musician of her calibre must  be missed it is remarkable how  well the two remaining. Joe Mock  and Rick Scott. have soldiered on.  On the face of it an electrified  mandolin and a guitar wouldn't  seem to be much of a dance band  but in the hands of masters, and  Mock and Scott are most certainly  masters of their craft, it works  and works very well indeed for  the most part. Virtually all of  their material is their own and  they bring to their work, besides their immense musicianship, a wry and exuberant brand  of humour which is totally engaging.  Scott is the showman supreme,  a really fine singer, a colourful  and likable stage presence with  a seemingly inexhaustible sense  of fun. Joe Mock is the supportive supreme. Often and contentedly self-effacing beside the  flambuoyant Scott, his versatile  wizardry with the guitar is a  source of constant amazement  and delight.  My first encounter with Joe  Mock took place about six years  ago just shortly after his band,  the Mock Duck, had been a  fixture around the Lower Mainland. I was appearing as Gepetto  in a production of Pinocchio at  the University of Notre Dame in  Nelson. Joe Mock with guitar  ambled into a dress rehearsal  and watched the show. Next  night he was there for the opening and this time he accompanied  the whole show on his guitar,  adding that dimension of musical  magic which transformed a good  show into a great show.  He was on the faculty of the  University that summer, teaching  guitar, and he was everywhere  on campus. A one-man ecumenical movement he had open air.  concerts of religious music for  nuns, he had concerts for folk  music buffs. Mock Duck arrived  and he threw a dance for the leap  and twirl set. Everywhere and  always he did his thing with that  serene and unpretentious good  humour that is his trade mark.  Perhaps my favourite Joe Mock  story from that summer is the one  about-Joe Mock and the Bishop.  It was apprently the Bishop of  the University's custom to spend  some welcoming time in the  Faculty Lounge with the new  members of the faculty. One can  perhaps imagine him being somewhat non-plusged with this  particular faculty member. Joe's  constant attire in addition to his  long black pigtail was a red  T-shirt, a pair of blue jeans,  and bare feet. Nonetheless this  was a liberal Bishop and he  treated this faculty member w-  he would another.  After the routine intro��; .i-.:-.--:��s  the Bishop asked. ' Tui me,  Mr. Mock, do you make your  living entirely by your music? "  ��� "Yeah, yeah," said Joe.  ' 'That's right.man."-  { "And do you find it sustains  you?" persisted the Bishop.  : "Oh. sure man," said Joe.  ''Anytime I need a little bread I  jiist take my. guitar and it works  out somehow."  ���' "Well, it does seem a little  precarious," said the Bishop.  VDoesn't it cost you a little  anxiety, Mr. Mock?"  H "Well," said Joe Mock to the  Bishop with his beguiling smile,  ';'you know, if you put your faith  ijn the right places, man..."  . Friday night in Egmont was  your classic small place party.  Those over sixty and under six  got in for free. There were kids  and dogs and an absolute absence  of formality. Richly unsophisticated. And yet there was more,  too. In addition to the music  there were some animated  movies. One of them made by  the National Film Board had won  the First Prize at the Cannes  Film Festival for animated movies  and featured an enlarged Pied  Whatnot on the soundtrack with  Egmont resident John Van Ars-  dell on the mandolin along with  Scott and Mock and another  couple of friends whose names I  missed. Once again I was awestruck by the immense amount of  talent that haunts these gentle  climes.  Nor did the evening end when  the dance ended. A number of  us repaired to Van Arsdell's  home where Mock and-Van Ars-  dell were joined by another local  talent, yet another, Bob Carpenter of Roberts Creek, who sang  strong moving songs of his own  and others with authority and  feeling. With a delight in the  music that was totally infectious  the three of them played and  sang together for hours before  the enthralled handful around  the Van Arsdell kitchen table  which was adored with a grand  quantity of fresh and delicious  prawns. There are moments on  this earth when heaven itself  seems like an unnecessary hypothesis.  And so, gentlemen, this public  thank you. This vale of tears  through which we wander is often  a bleak and desolate place.  Occasionally, however, we come  to a musical oasis where gifted  and sensitive men meet and make  music, singing even of their tears  and so transmitting the .bleakness  into something golden and sustaining, a great autumnal grain  field for the spirit.  Last Friday night in little  Egmont was such a night and I,  who was privileged to be present,  do thank you. 7  Slings & Arrows  George Matthews  by John Burnside  Who is this man Matthews  who writes a column called Slings  and Arrows every week in the  Coast News and why is it called  Slings and Arrows? Who is this  man Matthews who manages to  get himself marooned in Vancouver, column in hand during  a ferry strike leaving a poor  beleaguered editor with a horrendous dilemma on a Sunday morning? Read on, dear reader,  and all will be revealed by the  afore-mentioned editor. Well,  perhaps not quite all.  George was born quite conventionally by tweparents - one  of each persuasion - in Vancouver  sometime during the Second  World War. He attended school  somewhere in Vancouver area it  is believed and was a high school  football hero, a plunging full  back with a taste for cheerleaders and sports cars. At least  part of .his post-secondary education was obtained at Simon  Fraser University, the teacher-  training part. His main university  experience was obtained at the  . University of British Columbia  where he was a member of some  standing in a prestigious fraternity house.  After university he first went  to work as an up and coming  young executive type in an  up and coming young executive  type of social world. He was  working as a Personnel Officer  representing the company; in  its dealings with the representatives of the work force when a  particuarly crass and insensitive  piece of personnel policy on the  part of the corporation persuaded  him that he wanted nothing more  to do with General Motors in  any of its operations.  Having resigned on this matter  of principle he then set to and  became a teacher at Elphinstone  Secondary School where the  entire eight years of his educational career have been spent.  He is presently employed as a  counsellor and readers of this  space will surely remember the  graphic sketch he drew for us  last week of a fondly-remembered  counsellor from his own high  school days. It is possible that  in that wisely human old counsellor with a weakness for whisky  our George was casting a wryly  bemused look at his own future?  He was hired at Elphinstone  in September 1969 at the same  time as the' editor of this paper  and Mrs. Marta McKown. We  were the only three new teachers  on staff that year if memory  serves me well - it occasionally  does - and we were all three in  the English Department. The  principal then was a peculiarly  charming gentleman by the name  of Ellwood who seemed firmly  convinced that only fear and  insecurity would motivate his  staff. Consequently he assured  all three of us all year individually  that one of us was extra and  would have to go at the end of  our probationary period. Somehow we all lived through the  insecurity of it all and did indeed,  all three, survive to do some useful work at Elphinstone, indeed  Marta and George remain two  of the brighter stars in the.  Elphinstone firmament, though  this particular rather flickering  star has since gone on to new  ventures.  George was co-founder with  me of the dormant drama. club,  the Driftwood Players and the.  first successful play that the  company performed was The  Lover by Harold Pinter which  George directed. His first  acting assignment with the  players was the memorable  braggadocio and bullying Captain  who finally got his comeuppance  in the children's play Androcles  and the Lion. So effective was  George at arousing the enmity  of the youthful audience that he  was serveral times assaulted as  he puffed and paraded around  the area: One particular tenacious little opponent clung like  a leech to George's costume till  the exasperated actor lifted the  mite within an inch of his great  red costume nose and scowling  ferociously muttered: "Get lost  you little bleep or I'll turn you  over to the principal." Later  when the script called for'dear old  George to be prostrate on the  floor the kindergarten of Madeira  Park took their revenge by  wrapping him in the animal net  that he himself had been carrying  and'only the intervention of. his  fellow actors saved him from  grievous harm. ��.?:���  Subsequent to Androcles and  the Lion, George was seen as the  Ugly Sister with the figure in  the 1974 production of Dick  Whittington in the Sunshine  Kingdom. Yours truly was the  Ugly Sister without a figure. Ah  me! George was again in drag  in the production of Aladdin  which appeared I think in 1975  and then last year was a splendidly urbane Fezziwig in the Christmas performance of Scrooge.  In a brief appearance in- Salome  in 1975 he sketched a lecherously  decadent Roman at Herod's  court for us.  Despite the trepidation with  which he approached his thirties -  believe me, it took a concerted  and compassionate effort on the  part of all his friends to ease  him through the occasion of his  thirtieth birthday - George seems  to have flourished so far in that  dire decade. At the age* of  thirty-three he took up the game  of rugby and was named rookie  of the year at that time, an  honour of which he was singularly  proud.  Besides his professional responsibilities, his family responsibilities, his interest in rugby,  and his presently moribund interest in the theatre, George is  also a keen bridge player. No  less an august authoritiy than  the Coast News' bridge columnist, Jim Weir, has specified  George as one of the better bridge  players 'developing on, the Sunshine Coast. vt;...:v>r7  One of George's peculiarities  is the fact that he was apparently  seriously convinced for some time  that he had the most beautiful  feet in captivity. For years he  informed us that his feet were  truly special. Finally at a somewhat raucous post-performance  cast party he was persuaded to  doff his shoes and socks and reveal those wonders to our eager  gaze. We gazed in some disappointment, let me assure you.  at what seemed to the eager  gathering to be a routinely  knobby and uninteresting . set  of toes and so forth. Myself was  moved by disappointment to remove my foot -covering where,  wonder upon wonder, it was  revealed that I have web toes.  George, of course, bore the  chagrin with his customary charming good grace..  This, then, by way of a brief  and necessarily incomplete biographical sketch of this civilized  and charming gentleman. Space  will not permit revelation how at  an early age he discovered for  himself the true significance of  the Golden Spike nor allow the  divulging of some of the more  esoteric adventures that befell  our hero in his youthful wanderings through parts of South  America and almost all of Europe.  Sufficient for these present  purposes it is to say that this is  a wise and human being who may  well succeed in emulating over  the long haul the counsellor he  sketched for us in last week's  paper. The students of Elphinstone are fortunate to be so  served in the counselling office,  and I suspect that already they  have realized that.  Neither far out nor in deep  The people along the sand  All turn and look one way.  They turn their back on the land.  They look at the sea all day.

Tel and the Telecommunications Workers'Union?  The report of Federal Conciliation Commissioner Dr. Noel HaU  has been one of the major topics in the current negotiations:  B.C. Tel has indicated that almost all of the Hall Report's  recommendations are acceptable.  However, the Report fails to provide satisfactory solutions to  some areas of major concern to our customers, our employees and the  Company.  This is a brief explanation of the major issue:  What is at stake is the Company's ability to choose the most  economical manner of providing services to its customers. The Company  believes it must have the ability to purchase goods and services at the  lowest possible price consistent with quality.  This policy will not, in any way, endanger employees' jobs.  The Company's proposal guarantees that no historical  telephone work regularly performed by a B.C. Tel employee will be  contracted out.  In addition, the Company's proposal guarantees that no  employee as of January 1,1977 and future employees who attain two  years continued service, would be laid off due to;the introduction of  new equipment, improved services, or systems.  - When new technology changes the job of an existing  employee, the Company's proposalcommits the Company to  providing a training program for that employee so that he or she can  learn new skills.  In connection with this issue, B.C. Tel does not believe it is  entitled to enter into an agreement which could result in  increased rates for our customers.  B.C. Tel is regulated by the CRTC and they have stated, "we  can disallow for rate making purposes any unlawful, improper or  imprudent expenses." The Company has been directed to "contribute  every possible effort to achieve economies wherever they can be  found..."   .  B.C. Tel believes that further negotiations, could settle the  current differences between the Union and the Company and remains  willing to review outstanding issues.with the Union with a view to  obtaining a contract that is fair to our employees and which will  permit the Company to meet its obligations to its customers.  B.0.TEL ���^���~���w���w  Coast News. October 11,1977  THE ODD-ESSEYS OF  DOCTOR STRANGE  Magicians of one sort or  another were pretty much a staple  of the early comic-books when  they first came into existence as  an offshoot of the newspaper  funny-pages and the pulp magazines. Few publications of the  time failed to include some sort  of house necromancer among  the often highly-bizarre characters with which they peopled  their pages. These sorcerers in  residence were a curious lot with  names like Ibis the Invincible,  Doctor Fate and Zatara. They  ranged from relatively mundane  hypnotists who merely clouded  men's minds to actual dabblers  in the supernatural. Mandrake  the Magician, direct progenitor  of most of these strips, was  originally of the latter persuasion  and some of his adventures in  the Thirties were masterfully  imaginative. In later years, he  became a simple mesmerist and  the strip today is a pedestrian  echo of its former self. Most  of the others have long since  been retired to the old wizards'  home but the greatest of them all  is still going strong.  Doctor Stephen Strange was  a l; <mer to the genre of magical muyni..:!. He first saw the  four-colour ligh! of day as a  secondary back-up feature in a  magazine called coincidentally  Strange Tales. He was created  by veteran comic-writer Stan  Lee in the early Sixties as part  of the general idea-explosion  that produced Spiderman, Thor,  The Hulk and The Fantastic  Four. It was the birth of the  Marvel Comics Empire, destined  to become the unquestionable  giant of the industry. Doctor  Strange seemed at first, a very  minor figure in these epochal  events.  Strange was drawn initially by  Steve Ditko, the excellent, if  highly-stylized cartoonist who  had created Spiderman. The  earliest episodes were brief and  somewhat uninspired but the  character showed definite potential. Like most of Stan Lee's  creations, he had an interesting  origin. Stephen Strange was an  eminent surgeon, his personality  flawed by contempt for his  patients and an unscrupulous  greed for money and power. His  career was cut short by an auto  accident that injured the nerves  in  his hands and destroyed his  Psiges  from a Life-Log  Peter Trower  ability to operate. Strange became an embittered alcoholic  searching vainly for someone who  could cure his disability. His  search led him (exactly how is a  bit fuzzy) to a remote retreat  high in the Himalayas and a  wizened sage known only as  The Ancient One. The venerable  wizard refused to cure Strange's  malady because of his mercenary  motives but offers to take him on  as a pupil. Strange was sceptical but agreed. To make it brief,  he underwent a character-change  and becomes the Ancient One's  desciple, sworn to use his powers  solely in the interests of good.  In the process, he defeated and  ousted his predecessor, the  treacherous Baron Mordo. The  latter became a recurrent adversary, devoted to Strange's undoing. Strange, his apprenticeship completed/returned to North  America, established a sanctum-  sanctorum in Greenwich Villain-  and, aided by an Oriental manservant named Wong, set out to  right the psychic evils of the  world.  Apart from Mordo who kept  cropping up like a bad penny at  regular intervals. Doctor Strange's most sinister opponent in  these early episodes was a  character called Nightmare, a  guant wraith who ruled the  Dimension of Dreams and rode  therefrom by night on an equally  gaunt steed to attack human-  beings while they slept. )Steve  Ditko was a master at depicting  alien planes of existence, full of  unearthy floating shapes and windows in the air opening on even  GT WI LIGHT  THJ&ATRfb  886-2827  GIBSONS  Last chance to see ROCKY  Mon. & Tues. 10th & 11th  MATURE  SILVER STRERWi  Wed., Thur., Fri., Sat.

Strange, by using various arcane  spells, was able to enter these  eerie realms and do battle with  their grim inhabitants. These  mind-boggling encounters were  without precedent and set the  strip apart from all others.  Doctor Strange was truly "strange" and his adventures grew  progressively stranger, picking  up an army of devout fans along  the way.)  Certainly the climax of his  early years was an almost inconceivable saga generally known  as The Quest for Eternity. This  classic of the outre' ran for many  episodes and gained mystical  momentum as it went. Baron  Mordo, maddened by several  defeats at Strange's spell-hurling  hands, enlisted the aid of a  powerful and malignant demigod  called The Dread Dormammu.  This being who has a human body  and a head of flame, rules a  bizarre realm called The Dark  Dimension and seeks the conquest of Earth. The combined  power of Mordo and Dormammu,  threw The Ancient One into a  deathlike coma and put Strange to  desperate flight through regions  earthy and otherwise. Before  falling into his trance. The  Ancient One had muttered that  Strange's sole hope was to find  Eternity.  Unable to decipher this riddle  in any other manner Strange,  after a several-issue hunt, entered his mentor's mind and  wrested .the answer from him.  He gained access to a hitherto-  unguessed dimension and confronted the awesome entity.  Eternity is one of the most incredible beings ever conceived;  a living microcosm; a manshaped  piece of starred and planeted  sky with a vague face; the embodiment of, the Universe itself.  But Eternity merely presented  Strange with a further riddle by  informing him that he could defeat his adversaries through wisdom. Strange returned be-  wilderdly to his problems which  lasted for a good, many (more  episodes. Finally, in one of the  most brain-jarring climaxes ever  conceived, Dormammu, with  Mordo banished to limbo and  himself defeated in combat by  Strange, lured the magician to  the . nameless dimension of  Eternity. He had attempted to  imprison that being in the microcosm where he dwelt, to prevent  interference. But the godlike  entity burst free and as Strange  watched in stupefaction, the two  beings clashed with an apocalyptic force that almost tore the  cosmos apart. Both Dormammu  and     Eternity     vanished     and  Strange was rescued from the  resultant pyrotechnic chaos by  the powers of the now-revived  Ancient One. Words fail to do  \this astounding episode justice.  It has never been topped for  sheer outrageous impact.  Steve Ditko quit the strip  after this effort. He probably  needed an imagination-transfusion. He was the first of many  artists to deleniate Doctor Strange and he was a tough act to  follow. The magician's surreal  adventures continued apace. He  was pitted against a succession  of perculiar foes including Dor-  mammu's sister Umar; Nebulos,  a grotesque, green, legless  entity who levitated through  space and a three-faced cosmic  judge called The Living Tribunal.  Finally he was deemed popular  enough to be given his own magazine. The artistic chores were  taken over by the excellent  penciller, Gene Colan and the  writing by Roy Thomas, later to  script Conan The Barbarian.  Strange faced a resussicated  Dormammu, a revived Nightmare, a sinister group called  The Sons of Satanish and the return of the enigmatic Eternity.  But despite the quality of the  strip, something began to go  wrong and sales dropped off.  An ill-advised attempt to transform Strange into a more-conventional, masked superhero,  failed miserably. The doctor,  by this time, had acquired a  girlfriend called Clea, a refugee  from Dormammu's dimension,  but even this implied sex-element  failed to save the strip. It was  cancelled with the fifteenth  issue.  *    Ellingham 's  +   Astrology  Gene Wilder faces a killer atop a passenger car of a luxury train in "Silver  Streak." ^^  Twilight Theatre  In accordance with Marvel's  policy for not leaving loose-ends,  Strange was phased-out by  having him renounce his magical  powers. But you can't keep a  good wizard down. After a two-  year hiatus, he returned as part  of a superhero team called The  Defenders, along with The Hulk  and The Sub-Mariner. Reaction  was very favourable and shortly,  Strange was given his own title  again although he continued to  function as a Defender's member.

Comedy is again king this week  at the Twilight Theatre. Both  films on display are described  as laughter-filled and in addition  the scheduled visit of Manfrog  Alive Theatre to the Twilight  on October 19th promises more  chuckles and laughter.  The first film on display is  Silver Streak starring Gene  Wilder and it will run at the  Twilight Wednesday through  Saturday, October 12th to 15th.  This comedy-filled adventure  keeps audiences laughing and  cheering right up to the slam-  bang finish. The story has a  meek-mannered Wilder meeting  a wild but interesting assortment  of characters aboard a transcontinental train, the Silver  Streak of the title. Wilder is  propelled into a series of outlandish incidents involving mystery, murder, and romance.. The  comedy reaches its peak when  Wilder meets petty thief Richard  Pryor. Pryor's comic presence  is* brilliantly effective and Jill  iCIayburgh as the romantic interest is a unique and delightful screen presence. Choice  supporting bits are turned in  by such as Scatman Crothers,  Lucille Benson, Clifton James,  Ned Beatty, and villains Patrick  McGoohan, Ray Walston and  Stefan Gierasch. Henry Mancini  provided the musical score for  this highly entertaining film.  The second comedy of the  week, Nasty Habits, has a real  satirical edge to it. It is based  on Muriel Spark's novella, The  Abbess of Crewe, and is a sophisticated parody on Watergate.  The intelligent screenplay by  Robert Enders is witty and biting  and viewers will have a great  time picking out the real-life  counterparts of the characters.  No small measure of the movie's  appeal is due to the distinguished  cast. Twice winner of an Oscar,  Glenda Jackson heads the cast  as a nun who wants to replace  ihe dying abbess, played by  Dame Edith Evans in her last  role. Using the tactics of Watergate the aspiring nun has the  convent bugged and keeps tapes  of her conversations. Geraldine  Page and Anne Jackson are her  two closest cohorts with Sandy  Dennis being especially funny as  the bungling nun who can do  nothing right. Greek star Melina  Mercouri is seen as the travelling  missionary. This topical film  has been directed with a real  flair by Michael Lindsay-Hogg  and deserves attention.

Babies born this week will  make fine researchers or investigators whilst those of you who  came into the world around  October 12th should prepare for  many changes, including sudden  journeys, during the next twelve  months.  This week's prognostications  may sound very similar to last  week's forecast but we are now  experiencing a definite two-week  trend in our affairs. Good luck  ARIES (March 21 - April 19)  By the end of this week you  should know exactly where you  stand with those close to you.  An unexpected letter or phone  call could be the determining  factor. April 9th birthdays should  prepare for adjustments.  TAURUS (April 20 - May 20)  Many of you will ferret out  the cause of a long-standing  problem, especially on the work  scene. Changes in routine  should follow. Health problems  recur and important financial  news is due.  GEMINI (May 21 ��� June 21)  Spare-time activities could be  getting out of hand. The answer  is to avoid extremes. A very  sociable month lies ahead and  risk taking will be extra stimulating. Be careful.  CANCER (June 22 - July 22)  Again,.the domestic front could  be stretching your patience. The  urge to retreat is strong but  projects have to be started now.  An early-week happy message  makes it all worthwhile.

Work on  these positive feelings. Long  distance communications figure.  Moments of seclusion are refreshing.  SCORPIO (Oct. 24 - Nov. 22)  All actions, behaviour, and  attitudes displayed over re- ;��� ..  months have now to be :i:v.�� ssed  honestly.

The financial affairs of  those close to you change dramatically.  'JEf    by Jim Weir  Of the multitude'of bidding  conventions used today, the one  used most extensively is the  Stay man convention. I know of  no tournament player that doesn't  use it, yet I know, of very few  Sunshine Coast players that do.  This week's deal was played  five times at the last Golf Club  Duplicate Bridge game. Since  only one pair was using the Stay-  man convention, only one was a  makeable game contract bid.  ' Neither side is vulnerable.

The   Stayman   convention    is  initiated by a bid of two clubs in  responseX to5 a otieX notrump^  ^opening bid. Th& two ciufewiJs  requires that the opening bidder  either rebids a four card major  suit if he has one or (wo diamonds  if he docs not. The bidding  shown above describes how one  North player employed the Stay-  man convention to place his side  in the proper contract with the  opening lead directed into the  notrump hand. The other contracts at the Golf Club either  placed South in three notrump or  North in four hearts against a  club opening lead. Neither contract can be made.  However, South, playing in  4 hearts, had no trouble fulfilling  his contract. After winning the  opening spade lead he immediately played two more  rounds of spades discarding a  club from the dummy. This discard ensured the loss of only one  club. The only other losers  were the ace of Diamonds and  the ace of Hearts.  Not only does the Stayman  convention have the benefits  that it provides a means of  arriving at a major suit contract  with a 4-4 trump fit (which is  almost always better than a notrump contract) and establishes  the notrump bidder as declarer,  but it also leaves the responses  of 2D. 2H. and 2S to a 1 N.T.  opening bid free  T.J'S  has a sound idea  for every budget.

B. Dylan.  Highway 101 runs the length of  this coastline we live on. Not  only south from Earl's Cove,  where Tom Earl must have sat  once, and thrown the odd rock  or two into the chuck, but down  then, from Lund to begin with,  across two ferries, a. border,  another border, and on south.  How far does Hwy 101 go? Far  enough so the alders and firs  turn to redwoods, and then to  desert, mesquite, cactus and  people walking around in blankets with holes cut out for their  heads. It's a fine-looking road  from here. I've thought about it  a lot, this black, hard travelling  snake.  But let's get it straight. This  highway is where we get to where  we're going around here. Mothers on their way to maternity  wards ride it, coming and going.  Others end up on a one way trip,  and the highway takes them  there, too. It passes by the real  estate agencies, the quick lunches, the laundromats, the quiet  cabins and the arbutus trees.  It takes wide wanders through  the bush, winds up hills,   and  leans sideways for those surprise  views of the ocean. Highway 101  runs right byjny door.  Riding it. In our 2nd hand  cars, and used pickups, in that  flashy new candy apple blue  Dodge supersport, with the  turned-down leapers and the big  big wide tires. Riding home  from work, or to work. Driving  too fast, some of us, and others  going too slow. Worrying down  the road, thinking thoughts about  realignment, tune-ups and lube  jobs, worrying almost out of  gas, worrying about getting  there. Our petty plans and little  dreams laid out in tires - on  macadam.  Some warily sit. Have to watch  those road signs Martha, keep to  the right. Translate mph. into  km. and hope for the best. And  some have travelled it so long  they know the signs, and can read  the road without them. The  steady truckers with the boxes  full of everything, making deliveries. The arm around their  honey slack handed steerers,  the grim grippers of the wheel,  and the set-jawed, buckled in  suburban pretenders.

I am no great loss to the  business of the Inn's gracious  and hardworking owners and my  choice is based on a matter of  private principle. But I find  myself fighting for elbow room  amongst the feminists, the  moralists, the reactionaries,  the indifferents, the angry and  the bored, none of which I am.  Actually, I am still trying to  figure out how I feel about  strippers. A conflicting emotion  is what they call it.  Firstly, what is a strip-tease  supposed to be anyway? I always  thought it was a decadent yet  very ingenious way of producing  a certain affect upon the male  of our species, along the lines  of insipient erotic madness  coupled with foaming at the  mouth    and    sweating    of   the  Fast Faders Freak Show  is coming to town  Fast   Faders   Freak   Show   is  coming.  This original two-act production is the current vehicle of  Manfrog Alive Theatre, Canada's  oldest independent, unsubsi-  dized, theatrical touring company. A unique family cum-  theatre collective Manfrog has  crossed Canada five times in  its eight year existence bringing  exciting and original theatre to  people in theatres, night clubs,  coffee houses, steet corners and  farmers fields. Manfrog last  toured B.C.'s major centres in  1972 with its hit production of  "Songs ofthe City", hard hitting  social and political satire that:  James Barber in the Vancouver Province called "...something significant in the theatre,  "...simple direct and clean as  theatre and deceptively vicious  as satire."  While in the Vancouver Sun  Christopher Dafoe said "...swiftly establishing its credentials as  a champion of the downtrodden.  Manfrog elected to make its  points by means of hyperbole...it  succeeds very well."  "Fast Faders Fun City Freak  Show" a departure from Manfrog's usual format, is a multi-  levelled allegory confronting  issues that are both current and  timeless. Manfrog is both the  mirror and the mirrored in this  exciting study of the physical  and phychological interraction  of the members of a travelling  freak show.  Don't miss the Strongman's  struggle for power; Miss Glitters  search for herself; the Magician's  dilemma and Rosa the gypsy  queen's bid to restore focus and  balance to the freak show.

In our  pickup carryings, or little car  lurchings, with our sports car  top-down youth, blowing in the  breeze, we're off on the highway,  looking for love or the perfect  burger. Scouting out lumber to  board up our wanderings, searching for the last universal 35$  mint chocolate chip cone, or some  other balm for our troubled  soul. Looking for friends, with  houses off the highway, looking  for the lost city, the missing  child, or the tomorrow, or just  out for a Sunday drive. Out to  take in a little scenery.  It can be a nice drive if you  have the time. It's fine to make  sure that we haven't missed the  flowers, that have gone with  autumn. That we've time for  the trees, the maples golden  now, and all the blackberries  long picked ago, and the alders  that will fall green when they go  with the winter.

(That takes care of the  upper portions of the bodies  anyway...) Now, why then, is  every man I have talked to about  the show, denying feeling anything like what I have just described? Not only that, I am also  greatly puzzled by the general  statements that follow . like,  "it-doesn't-turn-me-on"; "it's  very boring"; "nobody, pays  any attention to it", and even  "it's very funny". Well, I have  to object! It makes me very  uneasy to hear that. What? The  female body is a funny thing?  I don't understand; have we become that superficial? That  careless? There is nothing  funny about the female body if  you happen to be in one. I am  suddenly very glad social convention requires that I wear  clothing. I like humour but  there are limits.  Secondly, if we are to have  strippers, why not go all out and  get the best there are, a real  good one who will make the men  forget about their beers for  twenty minutes, some exotic  marvel that will drive her audiences absolutely mad with desire,  |an "artiste" who will get everyone very excited just taking one  of her gloves off? Then I would  most likely go myself just to witness some quality work in this  world of cheap shots. A pro is a  Pro. Quality versus quantity.  Thirdly, (no, I am not going to  ask for male strippers, I would  surely lack the courage to watch  it), I want to stress that there is  enough sexlessness around  without pushing it as entertainment. It is so easy to get used  to that kind of attitude. Imagine  for a moment how it feels to compete with the fooz-ball machine  for attention by taking your  clothes off and . moving your  body around in a semblance of  what we vaguely define as  "being sexy" and "having a  good time"? That is why I am  staying away from the pub these  days. When the occupied terri- .  tory is freed, if ever. I'll go back  to playing pool undisturbed.

And here are  some quotes from the story:  "Like most Moslem countries,  Egypt is governed by personal -  status laws that have barely  changed since the 7th century,  when the Prophet Muhammad  preached Islam to the world."  That statement came from Mrs.  Soha Abdel Kader, author of a  Ford Foundation study on the  status of women in Egypt.  Next I give you a quote from  another lady V.I.P., a Mrs.  Laila Takla. "As the law stands  now, Egyptian women may not  legally marry before age 16 and  must give consent in writing.  For men the minimum age is 18.  If the marriage sours, husbands  get a divorce after repeating the  phrase "I divorce you" three  times in front of witnesses. No  court appearance is required.  But if the wife wants out, she  must go to court with a "legitimate" reason, meaning she must  be able to prove impotence, non-  support or ill-treatment. If  court action fails, she must live  with the husband and must be  "obedient" to him.  In child custody cases, the  mother cares for her children up  to the age of 7 for boys and 9 for  girls. This limit may be extended  by the court, but once it is passed,  the husband becomes the sole  guardian.  That gives you some inkling  of the present family laws in  Egypt.

The greatest  stickler is that, even without legal  barriers, most women would  still face discrimination.  Here is one example: Mrs.  Zeinab Zaki, the major stockholder in an Egyptian computer  firm. Let us hear her story.  "There are no restrictions in  business (on the surface), but, I  knew I would never be successful  without a man around, just for  appearances' sake." She tells  of the "double life" in which  she hired a "front man" to sit  in the largest office, while she  occupied a small one in the rear  of her headquarters.  "He played the front office,  but I was in control. I gave him  shares, I gave him prestige and  the empoyees had the impression  they were working for an important man and a firm they could  trust," she said.  Mrs. Zaki's husband, who is  a devout Moslem, never opposed  her working. But, she said, "He  made only one condition for me -  that I should not neglect any of  my housewife duties because I  was too busy working. For me,  this was the challenge!"  Adam Zagorin comments now,  "There is no question that some  ofthe legal restrictions on women  have a firm Koranic basis and  embody part of the religious  ideal to which many Egyptians  aspire."  I remember the tremendous  conflict women had in Britain  and America to win public  favour, and governmental consent, to equal voting rights for  women. The Suffragettes won  that long fought battle, and much  freedom has been granted to  them. But, there are still minor  skirmishes afoot. One, and it  has to be to the church's discredit, is with the Church. Still  there are those hard-nosed Anglican, Catholic, and perhaps other  worthies, who adamantly quote  their juicy texts of Holy Writ to  bar the ladies from the Holy of  Holies in their respective church  sanctuaries. Can you believe a  Pope Josephine?   I'm sure Peter  �����,  When the Coast Guard boat entered Gibsons  harbour last week it was on an unusual mission.  It was bringing the belongings of retiring, fifteen-  wouldn't mind one bit. Or Bishop  Elisabeth? I'm sure the ladies  suit the gowns much better,  after all, haven't they worn gowns  long enough?  But, I suppose even some  ladies might gag on these thoughts, for Holy Writ is really  after all, you know, THE HOLY  WRIT. And you must not be  contentious on "Holy Issues." So  perhaps the dear ladies have a  good deal of blame for their un-  free state on themselves. Now,  if they get rid of some of those  hang-ups, then maybe they will  get action. What did Old Abe  Lincoln say? "A house divided  can not stand." So unite, dear  ladies.

Dear Ann:  What is with the old flower  children and love, love, love?  They rip off each others' pot  and are doing everything to  corner as much money as possible.   I don't see the friendship  Nutrition  Question: Can we rely on sunshine to supply our requirement  for Vitamin D?  Answer: The ultraviolet light in  sunshine activates a form of  cholesterol in the skin to produce  Vitamin D. However, the amount  of ultraviolet light in sunlight  varies with the season and the  locality. These rays are also  filtered out by fog, smog and  ordinary window���glass.-- It- is  obvious that an adequate natural  source of ultraviolet light is impossible in northern climates  during the winter months. Therefore, some other source of Vitamin D is needed.  Milk fortified with Vitamin D  is our best food source. Adults  and older children can easily  meet their daily Vitamin D requirements by drinking the  amounts of milk suggested in the  Daily Food Guide. However  young children, expectant and  nursing mothers may need a supplement to meet their higher requirements for Vitamin D.  Question: How do canned fruit  drinks compare nutritionally  with canned fruit juices?  Answer: Fruit drinks supply  only calories and Vitamin C while,  for example, canned citrus fruit  juices supply Vitamin C as well  as considerable folic acid, some  thiamine and small quantities of  other nutrients.  Question: What is sorbitol?  I've noticed it listed in the ingredients on a package of dietetic  cookies.  Answer: Sorbitol is a sweetener  which is related to sugar and  must be considered as a source  of calories. Sorbitol is slowly  absorbed and thus does not  adversely affect blood sugar  concentrations. Its usefulness in  a diabetic diet is still being  questioned.

Opened Eyes  Dear Opened Eyes:  I've followed with interest the  attitude of the people who  accepted help and material things  -shared what others had. Taking  what belongs to others, particularly when they can't call the  RCMP is just like hijacking.  I don't see the spirit of the 60's.  It was probably more of an illusion than anything. Sure a few  creative people with love of  humanity existed but a lot of  others just mingled and took  advantage of the climate of the  times, living off others who  conformed or worked. When  they made money they spend it  on their own and I've seen little  concern, or passing on the  favors. One has to be true to  their own selves and not be too  disillusioned, seek others like  yourself;'>! To.: have, a: friend,'  you must be a friend.    Dear Ann:  My husband's family ruin a  lot of our plans. They suddenly  visit, when we have a small  outing planned. We have to keep  a furtive type love affair going.  They walk all over the house and  even come into our bedroom.  I like them but wish they'd ask  well ahead to visit and give us a  bit of privacy when visiting.  Thwarted  Dear Thwarted Sometimes:  I guess that's a universal  problem. One solution is to pc  on with plans and say, "1 hope  you don't mind housesitting."  Water the plants and feed the  dog. Or, phone and let them  know you are going to be away a  few days on vacation. So that  they won't come at those times  put a bolt on the bedroom door  after one try they'll get the point.  It's well to discuss or arrange  these visits at maximum enjoyable times. You have a lifetime  to be frustrated or to have a  happy relationship, don't depend  on mind-reading.  Dear Ann:  This summer at a garden  party a young man arrived in a  voile dress, low neckline, with a  little bow. Now my question is,  shouldn't he have shaved the  hair off his chest to wear a low  neck dress? He stole the spotlight anyway.  Picky  Dear Picky:  I am inclined to agree that the  effect would be daintier - but  since he may have a dual role -  it would ruin his macho to shave  it off.

Hydro contractors questioned again  The same crew under contract  to B.C. Hydro which was responsible for the damage at  Steve Hodgson's property on  Hanbury Road, has once again  become ��� a focal' point for public  complaint. '  The latest incident occurred  two weeks ago when the crew  cleared the stretch of power  line at Hudson Creek, east of  the Jackson Brothers logging  road at Wilson Creek.  For over a year the Gibsons  Wildlife Club has been working  on this creek to enhance its salmon run and, although the fish  do not run up as far as the power  lines. Conservation Committee  member John Hind-Smith was  upset by the method of clearing.  Mr. Bill DeHart of B.C. Hydro  accompanied Mr. Hind-Smith in  an examination of the creek  and although he felt that no  major damage had been done he  ,did see evidence of where machinery had run through the creek  bed.  An     arrangement     between  Roberts Creek planning  Several changes were made in  the second draft of the Roberts  Creek Official Settlement Plan  at the public meeting held on  Wednesday, October 5th at the  Roberts Creek Community Hall.  Although most changes were  minor, two could affect quite a  few properties. "  One change was to allow the  lot size in the rural area to be  approximately 5 acres instead of  the minimum 5 acres. This would  permit lots that are just under  10 acres which had lost footage to  road dedications to be divided in  half. The other change was to  have an intermediate zone between the existing half acre and  5 acre zones.  It was also decided to. delete  the section that allowed restaurants to be located on the waterfront near the mouth of Roberts-^  Creek. Bruce Moseley, a committee member, argued,that he  would love - to see a sea-food  restaurant there but it is not  possible to write by-laws that  would allow a nice restaurant,  but outlaw a fast food place like  the one in Davis Bay. The  meeting, in one,of its few moments of solidarity, agreed.  Several times Doug Roy spoke  on his idea of drawing up the  plan to encourage the development of Roberts Creek's small  commercial area. His plan calls  for high density subdivision at  the core with larger and larger  lot sizes expanding outward from  that centre. His ideas were  not pursued by others. Generally  everyone agreed that the plan is  basically a good one. There  will be future public meetings,  the dates of which will be announced.  Gibsons  Continued from Page One  Chairman of the Marina Committee explained all aspects of the  application, giving details of  its size, where it would be located the shareable costs formula,  and left Mr. Braithwaite with  the assurance that a public referendum would be held prior to  council making a final submission.  Several pieces of correspondence were considered at the  council meeting. Included among  them was a letter from a Miss  C. Bremner complaining about  the poor service available in  Gibsons from the taxi service.  Her letter said in part: "This is  a letter to ask if we cannot have  a better taxi service provided in  Gibsons, especially in connection  with the arrival of Vancouver  buses. One may arrive at about  8:30 p:m., no taxi, no telephone.  It's dark and maybe rainy and  if one could call it must be to  Sechelt. Now why should one  have to call Sechelt to get a taxi  in Gibsons?!" The village council agreed to write a letter to  the taxi company ; requesting a  better service for the village.  In another letter, George  Cooper wrote requesting factual  information about the question  of who is to administer Gibsons  water. Cooper said, in part,  "Some' questions, for example,  that many of us do not have  answers to: Does the Dayton and  Knight engineering report specifically recommend  the regional  district as the only supplier to  Gibsons; Is there a potential  supply, other than the regional  district's, available to Gibsons  for its future estimated needs?  What are the comparable costs of  1. Gibsons upgrading its own  system 2. The regional district  upgrading the Gibsons system?  When the village expands does  it await the pleasure of the  regional district for extending  the water service? What is the  view of the Gibsons Fire Department on the issue? Will  there be layoffs of present village employees if the regional  district takes over?"  As a response to Cooper's  letter, the council agreed that a  copy of the letter should be sent  to Dayton and Knight with a  request that the fact sheet they  are preparing for the information  of the taxpayers be made available prior to the public meeting  on the issue scheduled for  November 9th.  A letter from the Executive  Director of the Captain Cook  Bi-Centennial Committee was  presented to council. The letter  requested that the council appoint  a committee to determine the  form that Gibsons participation  would take. It was moved by  Alderman Metzler and seconded  by Alderman Goddard that the  matter should be turned over to  Mayor Larry Labonte for his  thoughful consideration.  Hydro and the Sechelt and  Gibsons Wildlife Clubs is presently in the works as a result of  this incident. Hydro have made  three sets of maps showing the  right of way for the power line,  the two clubs are presently  marking the waterways on the  maps and they will be kept on  file, one at each of the clubs  and the third at the Hydro office.  Before  any   clearing  is   done  around   the   marked   areas   the  clubs will be notified and Hydro  . will clear by hand or turn  the  job over to one of the clubs.  Ripples from  the Creek  by Lindy Moseley  I went to the Roberts Creek  Official Settlement Plan meeting  this week to hear how our community was coming along with  its creation of a long-range plan.  Instead, I witnessed a few people  bowing to what they called the  "inevitability" of urbanization.  A Community Plan, however, is  our opportunity to choose how  our area will be developed.  The government wants communities to express themselves, and  will ensure that future by-laws  will conform to the intent of the  plan.  A few individuals were greedily  pressing for. more subdivision .  in the.. interests j pf i only r. them-..mi  selves. Dollar signs in peoples';  eyes makes them less clearsighted about the future of our  community. People who want  to do what they please with their  own land perhaps don't realize  that in high density areas, they  will be able to do much less of  "what they please" and that  what with the taxes for the new  schools, roads, and public services, and the by-laws affecting  what day you can hang out your  laundry, the freedom of rural  living that we how enjoy in  Roberts Creek will be lost forever.  Profiles  of this  place  by John Faustmann  GUY AND OLIVE CLEAR  The Clears, who came to  Canada at the beginning of this  century and have since lived in  places on this coast that most  people have never heard of,  have now settled into a comfortable white house on the Redrooffs Road. They have filled  their house with the things  they've made and collected.  Olive's oil paintings decorate  the walls of the front room, and  her scrapbooks are stuffed into  cabinets all around the place.  In Guy's room in the back are  his extensive collections of  ship's models, wooden animals  he's carved, and almost enough  polished rocks to ballast a boat.  Although both Guy and Olive  are English originally, they  didn't meet until they'd arrived  here in British Columbia. Guy  came from Hertfordshire, where  his father had been a farmer.  He arrived in Canada in 1904,  when he was eight years old,  and moved to Saskatchewan with  his family. "My father wanted  me to be a farmer," he says,  "but I liked machine work."  Some years later, when Guy had  grown up and was running his  own farm, he contracted pneumonia. His father suggested he  go to the B.C. coast; where the  warm weather might aid in his  cure. It was 63 degrees below  (farenhiet) on the day he caught  the train, and he was soon in  Victoria. "Victoria in those  days was like Sechelt," he says.  But "The bush was more my idea  than a city," he adds, and after  two weeks, supposedly recuperating from pneumonia, he set off  up the West Coast Trail, along  the edge of Vancouver Island.  Olive arrived in Canada in  1913, leaving her home in York-  Those who see a pressing need  for small lots are welcome and  encouraged to live in the already  existing centres.  Many people at the meeting  seemed not to grasp the fact  that the purpose of the plan is  to allow us to instruct the Regional Board to pass by-laws that  Coast News, October 11,1977.  gtottcjueg  On    Hwy. 101 overlooking 886-2316  Gibsons  Harbour       * Antiques   * Curios  ��� Boutique Clothing  & Custom Sewing  ���������<  S       ASK ABOUT OUR STEREO RENTALS       ��  i  CALL  {886-9733    ^  RENT COLOR  ���No Deposit  ���3 Month Min.  v?>f.^  1 &&*r  15  m ^  ��� OPEN 10:00 a.m.  ��� Tuesday - Saturday  7:00 p.m.  FIREMEN'S  ANNUAL BINGO  Guy and Olive Clear are pictured outside their  home on Redrooffs Road.  will-  create,  the  J&P4U  of  communitywe,want7 ?A'contrtiu-  At the last meeting the basic  premis of the plan was applauded  - that we would like to preserve  the rural atmosphere and control  the. sprawl that has destroyed  other areas. At this meeting,  however, one committee member  denied his support of the plan.  This temporary interuption was  the first in a series of disruptions  to the orderly discussion of the  plan.  The meeting had no direction  from the chair. Unfortunately,  the discussion varied so much  it was hard to get a feeling of  what, if anything, should be  changed. Many who would have  liked to express a saner view  were unsure whether their logic  could be heard, if interjected  into the chaos. The greaj majority of Roberts Creek community  members moved to Roberts Creek  because they prefer a rural  area. Gibsons and Sechelt are  designed as more urban centres'.  nity is; made up of" people ��� Who,  want to stay. One person who  argued for allowing smaller lot  sizes was heard to say, "Well,,  if it gets too crowded after I  subdivide, I'll move. I already  have a nice place picked out."  Fine and dandy,'why not leave  right now and spare us.  Not once at either of the public  meetings were population figures  given. But according to one  committee member there are  just under 1,000 registered voters  in Roberts Creek. With the  existing lots, and that is without . any zoning changes, we  could develop a population of  11,000. Eleven times the current  population, isn't that enough?  The questionnaire which was  circulated to all Roberts Creek  citizens clearly indicated that  the community wanted a rural  atmosphere with a distinct personality - a separate community  on the coast. The only way to  have a rural atmosphere is not to  allow extensive subdivision.  The plan is a good one. Let's  support it. ;  shire, where her father had an  iron foundry. "I always liked  travelling. I always travelled  alone," she says. Many times  she travelled by bicycle, and in  1928 she cycled all the way from  Vancouver to Prince Rupert.  She has scrapbooks "of the journey, but the CBC has borrowed  some of them for their upcoming  television show about her. "I  didn't have a tent," she recalls,  "I just camped out. And I didn't  have a puncture the whole way."  Later that same year, after she'd  returned from Prince Rupert by  boat, she too ended up in Victoria. Soon after that, a friend  who was living at Pachena Point  lighthouse (up the west coast  from Victoria) needed a babysitter. Olive agreed to take the  job.  Meanwhile, Guy came along  the West Coast Trail, and when  he arrived at Pachena Point  lighthouse he got a job there too.  Two years later, in 1930, Guy  anid Olive were married. Although they had akfarm irfrtSourg:7  ���^;foratime^and Olive wbuMf-f  'occasionally cycle*down to  toria, they spent most of their  life together working in lighthouses. Guy was mostly a relief lightkeeper, and the government stationed him all oyer the  coast. He and Olive tended the  lights at Ballenas Island. Pine  Island, Entrance Island, Scarlet  Point, Pachena Point, Cape  Mudge and Sisters Rock. Olive  was at Estevan Point when it  was shelled by the Japanese  in World Warn.  They have lots of memories  of their years on the lighthouses.  They recall the storms on the  West Coast that would hit occasionally. One of them washed  away three tons of coal that had  been stored sixty feet above the  high tide level. Another storm  tore down an entire stone wall  and took away several cords of  wood, and at Pine Island the fog_  alarm was swept into vthe sea.  They remember too, the sinking  of the Gaiiano when she tried to  land at Bull Harbour, and Olive  recalls the little terrier her  brother-in-law had  on  Triangle  Island, and the storm that blew  it right off the cliff.  Some lighthouses were better  than others. They never liked  Sisters Rock. "It's a miserable  little place, that. Not a blade of  grass on it." Guy thinks he  liked Pine Island the best of them  all. "I liked Ballenas too." he  says. "We had a cow there,  and lots of fresh milk and butter.'  We had chickens too, and lots of  eggs." They both enjoyed their  life in all these isolated places,  and look back on those years with  fondness. "I never found it  hard," Guy says. "I had lots of  hobbies and I could turn my hand  to anything that was wanted.  Every thing seemed to come  natural."  "Nowadays it's all push-button  stations," Olive adds.  Guy and Olive Clear know this  coast in a  way  that few  other  pe,ople    can.    having    travelled  from almost one end of it to the  other, but now they've decided to  settle  here  in  the   comfortable  white house.    The oil paintings  ?that Olive has done are of some of  '"the  lights  where  they   worked,  and they hang there, on the walls  ofthe living room, souvenirs of  where they've been.    Olive still  keeps her bicycle  down   in   the  basement but a recent hip operation may keep her off it for a bit.  "We let the car go a few years  ago,"   she   says.      Their   many  friends drive  them  where  they  want to go. however, and they  still take the shopper's bus into  Sechelt   on   Thursdays.       Olive  still paints quite a bit, and Guy  carves  out   droll   wooden   dinosaurs,  and  they  both   tend   the  garden   which   seems   to   have  grown    larger   these    last    few  years.       Still   happily    married  after forty-seven years, Guy and  Olive Clear have settled in now.  going to tend their own lights for  awhile.  20  GAMES  $1,000.00  JACKPOT!

A recent  letter in the  Coast  News  from  West Africa paying tribute to"  the quality of the educational ���  situation at Egmont was occasioned by another couple of  little visitors who attended the  school while they, too, vere  visiting in the area.  The fourteen regular students,  including six new Grade ones  this year, were all in attendance  on the occasion of the Coast  News visit. They were Michael  Fearn, Elaine, Maureen and  John Griffith; Simon Klatchen;  Meagan Marian; Wanda and  Darryl Jeffries; Jessica and  Joseph Silvey; Kinji Van Ars-  dell; Adam and Marie Wallace,  and Richard Wallbaum. Some of  them come to school by fish  boat from outlying points. All  of them on the occasion of this  reporter's visit seemed happy  enough to be there.  It's a well-equipped little  school. It was Story Time on a  Friday afternoon when fhey  were visited and they were one  and all enthralled by that grand  old classic Treasure Island which  was being shown in animated  cartoon form on the school's  cassett television set. There is  also a stereo record player.  "When I first came to teach  here five years ago," said Fearn,  "there was virtually no equipment but there is certainly no  room for complaint now."  When the time came for school  to be dismissed some of the  children stayed in the school  yard and staged an impromptu  little drama around the large,  rock which stands like a sentinel  beside the school: "Bang,  bang! It's your turn to be dead."  "No it isn't!" "I've got a double  ray gun."  All in all this little school at  the extreme north end of the  Sunshine Coast seemed like a  happy, cheerful little place.  Teacher and students are obviously at ease with each other  and the School District has provided Fearn with some splendid  teaching tools with which to work.  It's a one-room rural school  but it would be foolish to see it  The absence of ferry traffic proved a blessing in disguise last Friday in Sechelt when work  on Cowrie Street was able to proceed without traffic congestion.  as an anachronism. In terms of  the equipment available and  prevalent educational philosophy  it is as modern as tomorrow and  the Coast News reporter formed  the impression that the children  who go there are fortunate to  do so.

The clerk informed council that  Mr. McGinnes had been in contact with him requesting permission to go ahead with construction on industrial lot 16 on  Porpoise Bay Road. In council's  opinion the present size of the  lot does not come within the  zoning standards and the recommendation was that Mr. McGinnes increase its size by obtaining  some of the neighbouring property. Since the date of the meeting  Mr. McGinnes has made application to the Board of Variance  that his plans be accepted.

On the rocks  ���jf.  by Pat Edwards  Drawmaster Larry Boyd is  busy lining up rinks for the  coming season and would like to  hear from a few more curlers.  Quite a. number still have not  signed up, and league play is  scheduled to begin on Tuesday,  October 11th.  The Green Bonspiel has proven  to be highly successful with a  full complement of curlers plus  a waiting list. Green curlers  Have responded to the call and  -it is hoped that we will be able  to welcome many of them to the  ranks of permanent curlers.  It looks as if the ladies Thursday night league will be operational after all. Four rinks have  entered with a possibility of two  more if skips can be located for  them. Come on girls, let's show  the men that we are as interested  and active as they are!.  The new sound system has  been installed in the lounge  and should prove to be a popular  attraction. The executive is  looking   inter   the   purchase   of  fflatice 'tapes/and hopefully we  will have a few tapes donated.  If yoii. have any cassette tapes  ... you    think   would   be   suitable  Terry   Conner would  be   happy  to receive them.  -. Plans are still in the formative  ... stages for a New Year's Eve  dance,to be  held  at  the  club.  ; There is'a limit to the number of  tickets available for this event.  Maurice Pearson will have more.  ; information for the next executive meeting on November 7.  The P.C.C.A" has notified ! us  that souvenirs of the Canadian  Curling Championship Brier to  be held in Vancouver in March  are available to us. We hope  to have some on hand soon to  commemorate this occasion.  The souvenirs include pins, T-  shirts, spoons, steins and charms,  and will make great gifts for  curling enthusiasts. Watch this  column for more information.  Those decrepit individuals  you see creeping around town  this week are not delegates to  an arthritic's convention. They  are those hale and hearty athletes  who participated in the green  bonspiel last weekend. It's a  long time from March to October  and we had forgotten how heavy  those rocks can be! After one  game we were tired, after two  we were weak, and after three  we could barely climb the stairs  to the lounge to sit and oil our  joints. But don't ever let it be  said that curlers don't have the  ability to bounce back. We will  all be out there this week for  the opening of league play.   Why  don't you joirf-susr  It onlyJJiurts'-':  when you pick up the first rock!  Fifteen green curlers accepted  the challenge and thoroughly  enjoyed our first green bonspiel.  Thanks to the organizing ability  of Bonspiel Chairman Maurice  Pearson, everything went according to plan and the spiel was a  tremendous success.  There were two winners in  each of the two events, and despite the fact that we were out  of practice, we witnessed some  good curling. The Harold Pratt  Family Affair managed to knock  out the Jan Neubauer rink in  the first A event game, while  the Larry Boyd rink took Don  Elson's rink for the other A event  berth. Brother Doug Elson was  more successful in downing Mary  Gauci's rink in the B event, but  the most exciting finish went to  Marsh Pierce in the other B  event. It took Marsh's last rock  to draw in to steal the end and  take the game from the Dennis  Suveges rink.  The Horse Show held at Brush- 1st,  wood Farm owned by Bruce and' g Porters  Trish Cramer, on October 2nd "-������������" *  was a tremendous success. The  show was judged by Mr. Roger  Saur, well-known trainer of  Quarter horses in the Fraser  Valley. The judge was assisted  in the ring by his wife, Annette.  The day was clear and sunny  and the show got off to a good,  if a little late, start. There were  contestants from Powell River,  Texada Island, Sechelt and  .Gibsons.

In a cool, collected, professionally played game at the  Pender Harbour field last Sunday  the Pender Harbour Bananas  trounced the Wanderers 'B'  team by a score of 9-2. What  the game lacked in drama was  more than compensated for by  the superb passing and goal-  taking of the Bananas. Dave  'Red* Holly, Gerry Mercer, and  Doug Barslaux shone through  the game, each scoring two goals.  The first goal "of the season  came for Al Vance on a beautifully taken shot from a brilliant  pass from the corner by Mike  Kammarle. The scbrers for the  Wanderers were Ted Lever and  Dave Davies. Great sportsmanship was shown by both teams  throughout the contest.  The Bananas' next game will  be played at Pender Harbour  against the Redskins.

Mike Cavalier and Vic Marteddu  were the only ones to break the  300 barrier with Mike rolling a  309 in the Classic League and Vic  a 314 single in the Phuntastique  League. There were lots of high  200 games and 700 triples in  the leagues with Hazel Skytte  leading the ladies with a 756  triple and Mel delos Santos  the men with a 775 triple, both  in the Phuntastique league.  Tournaments coming up in  October include a bus load of  Golden Agers stopping off on  Wednesday, October 19th to  get together with our Golden  Age Club and bowl a couple of  games. They then will carry on  to Powell River.  On October the 24th the Gibsons ladies will have a go at the  Sechelt ladies and there will be  a Master' Bantam Tournament  at North Shore Bowl which we  will take part in and a few of us  will be heading to Chiliiwack to  take in Park Lanes 15-game  Marathon on October 16th.

Sasaratt)  886-7411  OOLS  POOL TABLES  (both slate and composition)  by D. J. Hauka  Last week's interschool competition on Howe Sound was  dominated by teams from Elphie  at Squamish. The Cougars Grade  8 and Junior girl's volleyball  team won three games each from  the Howe Sound Chiefs. The  Senior girls did the same while  hosting Squamish at Elphinstone.  The Senior boys rugby team  swept both matches of a home  and away series against Squamish's newly formed squad.  The Junior boys added a win of  their own at home against Squamish's more experienced juniors  and Pender Harbour's not so  experienced mixed squads.  The only dark spot for Elphinstone was a 3-1 loss handed out  by Squamish to the Senior girls  grass hockey team.  Future activities include  senior boys taking on arch rivals  St. Georges in town next week,  provided the ferries are back in  service.  5'  ���or  i>~i  announces interest rate  REDUCED TO  12V2%  on new personal Bankplan loans  ���  AMOUNT  COST OF  AMOUNTTO  MONTHLY  If you have decided to take out a  TERM  REQUIRED  BORROWING  BE REPAID  PAYMENTS  loan for a car, home improvements,  a vacation,  a mobile home or any  12 months  $1000.00  $68.96  $1068.96  $89.08  worthwhile   purpose,   ask   about   a  Commerce   personal   Bankplan   loan  24 months  2500.00  338.24  2838.24  118.26  today. vH  You; don't even  have  to  be     a  36 months  4000.00  817.16  4817.16  133.81  Commerce customer to apply.

VON 1VO  886-8111  Wildlife  corner  by Ian Corrance  While having my Sunday afternoon cup of tea I was looking  through the weekend Sun. I  noticed an English school teacher  now living in Nova Scotia had  finagled passage for seven red  deer from a Royal reserve in  England to a wildlife park in  that province.  I suppose now that some High  Commission or other has o.k.'d  it it will probably happen, so all  I can do is wish the animals a  happy stay, but I wish people  would stop doing things like this.  If there's a scarcity of deer in  that area it is probably because  the land could not support them  for some reason, or they were  run off by civilization. If it is  the latter and there had been deer  there before, then why not put a  deer there that is indigenous to  the area? It's great to have  animals around that remind you  of home but also pretty stupid  to tamper with nature and needlessly introduce something just  to pamper a whim.  Two prime examples of this  are right in front of our eyes.  In Burnaby some nut introduced  the Crested Myna and over the  past few years it has been gradually taking over, to the detriment of the rightful inhabitants. The second is the starling,  brought over here by some homesick shortsighted person. A few  years ago someone asked me to  come up to their house and photograph a strange bird they couldn't  identify, it turned out to be a  starling, there were only a few  around at that time. Personally  I think they are a fun bird to  watch, always nattering, but  they are, like the Myna, taking  over.  You realize of course that not  having been born in this country  myself I would not put humans  under this set of rules, I want  to stay here.  Since I'm on my soap box I  may as well continue to pound  the table.  Mary Livingstone's horse got  loose last Tuesday, she came in  and asked if a note in the paper  would help her get it back. It  wasn't necessary as the horse  returned a few days later. The  only problem was that, the once ..  friendly horse was full of buckshot and pellet wounds and was  .^*��*  States.:':  ���V ������������   -��*  *$���*������%  4%>^r  "U3>       \  P**^  P* ^*_=s  1|,l��^*iSt^_a?&  Mary Livingston is pictured astride her horse Robin who ran away last week. When the  horse was found it was discovered that he had been shot with both a shotgun and a pellet  gun. Photo by Fred Inglis  understandably a bit skitterish.  In Mary's words, "The horse  was so friendly that it probably  walked right up to the person  that shot it."'  The horse was being kept up  at Crowe Road when it escaped  and it is likely that it wandered  up to the power line. It's quite  understandable that if he got into  someone's garden the person  would chase him off, but shooting  him is a touch extreme. One  thing I'll tell you is that I don't  want to be on his back the next  time he hears a shot being fired.

There have been a number of  stories lately about bears getting  brave, becoming a nuisance,  and Dan Gory havinglo dispose  of a couple.  Last year Leon Arthur told  me a story about his neighbour  being bothered by dogs in his  garbage. He .decided to fix  them. There was an outside  light which could^ be ^ operated  ���!V! v ^' '' "..'��� Fum  Earthworm farming  from inside, he stationed his wife  beside it and instructed her to  switch it on when he yelled.  Armed with a baseball bat he  headed off into the dark. His  yell coincided with the downward stroke of the bat, the lights  came on, the bat resounded  soundly off the rump of a black  bear, the neighbour took off in  one' direction while the bear  high-tailed it in the other. This  practice is probably not! reconV  mended. ��� ��� .  I got a call this morning (Sunday) from someone -who had  seen what was probably a Pygmy  Owl at Porpoise Bay, she was  able to walk right up to it without  it flying away.  If you come across anything  interesting  could  you  drop   me  Earthworm farming, now a  billion dollar business in the  United States, has finally come u>  Canada. Western Earthworm  Farms Ltd. has opened a hatchery  at St. Claude, Manitoba, and is  expanding across Canada.  Western specializes in raising  and marketing the Red Hybrid  species of earthworm which is  highly favored as a fishbait be  cause of. its attractive coloring  and ability to remain alive and  active underwater.  Although current available  supply of redworms is unable to  meet the demands of the seasonal  fishbait market, research has  opened up exciting possibilities  for huge new markets in organic  gardening and farming, refuse  disposal, lawn and parks beautifi-  cation. and high protein feeds.  (The rcdworm is 60% protein.)  Hybrid redworms are raised in  wooden "beds" of approximately  20 square feet. After being  stocked with an initial culture,  each of these beds will double  its population, every 60 days,  and is then split into 2 beds.  It is this amazing multiplication  factor   and   low   overhead   that  make the earthworm business so  profitable. ">  A ten bed start would multiply  to 160 beds in eight months*,  at which point over a thousand  pounds of earthworms could be  harvested each month without  depleting the culture. Western  Earthworm Farms gives each of  its authorized growers "a contract  to buy their production for $2.00  per pound. These worms ar��  then marketed throughout North  America. 7  Redworms are usually bedded  in manure or peat moss arid  thrive on manures, garbage,  and even newspapers. <They eat  their own . weight of food eaph  24 hours and break it down into  the finest plant food known to  man-earthwormcastings. ���';  An estimated 90.00Q persons  are now engaged in the earthworm industry as more ,and  more people return "to the lahd^'  and to organic, natural methods  of gardening and farming. \ \  Persons interested in raising  earthworms for profit are invited  to inquire at Western Earthworm'  Farms, Box 858, Raymond,  Alberta. ���'��� l ^v  Planning  a trip?

Sure,  I believe in it, and I was involved  in a lot of sports activities when  I was in high school, but that was  over ten years ago, and except  for occasional hikes and backpacking trips, a yoga class, and  the odd bike ride, the closest I've  ever come to really trying to improve my condition was perhaps  five attempts at jogging - which  were spread out over two years.  Each time I did it I realized that  it felt good. I didn't feel like  eating after 1 ran, so it really  helped if I was trying to lose  weight, and instead of being tired  out as I expected, I seemed to  have more energy and felt pepped  Drop   off   your.

The rationalization I used'was  something I had noticed when  glancing through Kenneth  "The Father of Jogging" Cooper's book. Aerobics. Cooper  stated that if you can run a mile  and a half in under 12 minutes,  you're in good shape. At least,  that's how I remember it.

And when my companions panted at me from the  finish line that I'd better hurry  or I wouldn't make it, I literally  forced myself to break into a trot  so I could finish the last 50 yards  and complete my laps, in the prescribed time. Then I collapsed on  the grass, legs trembling, lungs  gasping, and heart trying to  pound its way out through my  head. But all the while I was  consoling myself that I had made  it, so I must be in shape. No  reason for me to feel I needed to  improve my condition, or at least  not enough to feel I should take  up jogging seriously. Just a  small rationalization, but it was  all I needed.  Then a year ago I just happened to be in the unenviable  position of looking for a job, and  when the Wilson Creek Community Association approached me  looking for a Community Youth  Worker, it sure sounded good.  "Set up some activities for young  people" was the only direction  they gave me. so off I set to discover what it was that kids  wanted to do. And the answer  was all physical. Boys must be  born sports-lovers, because more  chances to play floor hockey,  and volleyball, and to ski was  what they most often asked for.  And girls, perhaps expressing  competitiveness in a different  form, wanted exercise and self-  improvement   classes,    dancing  Joyce and Cal Bissett make their final stop in Sechelt at the conclusion of their B.C. wide  tour promoting B.C. products and their uses.

I,  would still be sitting back telling  myself that I must be in pretty  good shape because, after all,  I did make a mile and a half in  12 minutes.  But after a while I noticed that  a few small changes had occurred  which I could attribute to nothing  but increased physical activity.  Of course there were the obvious  ones, like being able to go  through a while side of the Aerobic Dance record without stopping, whereas at first one song  would have us all thinking we  were going to collapse, and being  able to climb up Soames Point  without having to stop at every  bench along the way. But there  were also subtle, little things,  like realizing that I had more  colour in my cheeks than I'd  ever had before, and that I didn't  seem to need as much sleep as  I had previously required. And  even after a full day's work, I  was more pepped up and ready  to go in the evening than when  I wasn't working. I just generally  had more energy!

Sunshine Coast Regional District  Box 800  Sechelt, B.C.  VON3AO  885-2261  (Mrs.) A. G.PressJey  Secretary-Treasurer  y Pender Harbour  Ratepayers  Coast News, October 11,1977.  15.  by the Pender Harbour & District  Ratepayers' Association Publicity  Committee.  A planning committee has been  hard at work for months in Pender Harbour trying to formulate  a statement of values for their  community. It is our judgement  that this plan is of, limited scope  and sadly non-specific in defining  the goals and aspirations of the  resident population.  The representative on the committee is one example of the  limitations of this plan. At present, Irvine's Landing and  Madeira Park have no representation. Kleindale has four,  Garden Bay has one, Francis  Peninsula has two and Egmont  has ono (an observer only).  The representation does not take  into account the million-dollar-  plus fishing industry nor the  logging industry.  As a water-based community  whose world centres on its harbours, it seems strange that the  fishing interests are not represented and this lack is obvious  in "the plan as it is presently  drawn up. Nowhere does the  plan attempt to deal'with fishing  industry requirements beyond  the most cursory mention and  what mention there is is vague  and of little use in determining  future policy.  . jhe most distressing aspect  of this plan is how little research  has gone toward formulating  policy. Numerous communities  along the coast and in the interior of the province have  brought out community plans.  None of these have been made  available to this committee. This  is pot to suggest that this community should arbitrarily copy  other's plans,, rather, that we  could learn from other's mistakes and triumphs.  .Bowen Island is a case in point.  Affer a" year of bickering and  exhausting a number of planners  the community finally began to  take seriously what they were  dojng. They held local elections  in.', each geographical area in  order that their committee represent the aspirations and ideals  of .their island. In Pender Harbour the planning committee was  arbitrarily appointed by Regional  Director, ./Jack Paterson, _with  little^a'tfempjt at "representation;"  Where are the fishermen? Where  are the loggers? Don't they have  a ,voice in where they want  their community to go?  This committee has accepted  as.'.a fait accompli the necessity  of sewers and an expanded water  system for the harbour with no  attempt to explain where the  money will come from to build  them. A sewer system would  cost hundreds of thousands of  dollars and would do nothing to  control pollution. To pay for  tertiary sewage treatment is far  beyond the present means of  this community with its land  baSe primarily bedrock. It would  m��an a pipe out into Agamemnon  rr 1  iTED HUME;  i;  ���:  ��� ������  ���>  \i  i >   .  ��� -  ���: AUTHORIZED  SERVICES  n  n  i >:  ��� *  Essa  n  if  ��� >:  Home  j Equipment |  Dealer  ���'.'*���  ��� *  FURNACES  \lHOTWA TER HEA TERS \  i > ���  i* ���  I >        HUMIDIFIERS I  I?

Development must be controlled. Not just the small developer  who attempts to subdivide a  few lots each year but the large  developers from outside who  come here to bring in hundreds of  new lots with no attempt to come  to terms with this community,  its heritage, and its future.  Our young people leave here as  soon as their schooling is finished. The business community is  almost bankrupt due to the lack  of supportive industry. We are  becoming a residential subdivision of Sechelt and Gibsons and  in a larger sense of the Greater  Vancouver area. Is this where we  want to go? Even small cottage  industry is being discouraged by  zoning by-laws. The only industry we will have left is that of  tourism with its follow-up of  pollution and insensitive outsiders.  When this plan is completed it  will be sent to Victoria to be  proclaimed The Official Community Plan for Area 'A'. This then  will be the official guideline for  all future development. Unless  we get a plan with specific proposals we will be placing very  great discretionary power in the  hands of the Regional Board.  The official plan will take  the present power out of the  hands of the Department of  Highways who presently make  all decisions on subdivision and  place it in the hands of the  Board. This brings the decisionmaking closer to home and as  such is a step in the right direction. But power can be easily  abused by small-time bureaucrats as big-time ones however  and we must take care to assure  that the Regional Board's new  powers over our zoning is proper-  ly safeguarded and qualified.  The Regional planner's apparent  desire to rush this plan through  suggests the Regional District  does not share this caution but  where is the bureaucrat who  thinks his own' discretionary  power should be limited?  The present plan does little  to develop criteria and guidelines for our future. There is  no sewage disposal policy, there  is no water policy, there is no  transportation policy, there is  no fire protection policy, there is  -v^o social services resource policy,  there is no pollution policy; in  other words the most important  policies are lacking! With no  money and no true representation  this plan is of no use and in the  future when we complain that our  harbour and community are not  what we might have wished then  we will have no one to blame but  ourselves. The Regional Planner,  Paul Moritz, wishes this plan  to be pushed through in order,  "that we control as soon as  possible uncontrolled development". His words are correct.  It must be done soon. But how  can it be controlled without a  strong, specific, representative  plan?  This column is not bent on  criticizing the work of the committee itself. With what they  had to work. with they have  valiantly struggled to get where  they are now. But it is essential  that a cautious approach be taken  in the formulation of this plan.  A very generalized plan does  nothing for the community.  It is of interest that no money  has been made available to this  committee. The Assistant Planner, Paul Moritz, was asked at  the October meeting of the  planning committee why the  Regional Board, who control the  tax base of this area did not make  available monies to do primary  surveys and to bring in a few  experts to speak. The answer  was simple. They did not think  it necessary and therefore did  not budget for it. The planner  was then asked if money could  be    made    available    and    the  answer was: "Yes, it could be  budgeted if the Regional Board  thought fit."  In response to the question  that, "If money were made  available wouldn't it then follow  that a better plan could be drawn  up?" his answer was:     "If we  wanted a real tip-top planning  job, yes." We responded:  "Are you suggesting we should  accept less than a tip-top job?"  and the answer was: "Under the  circumstances, yes."  Less than tip-top? Is that what  this community wants?  Canoe Pass Condominium  Important news for the Canoe  Pass condominium watchers:  the Regional District has set the  public hearing for Sunday October 23rd, at the community hall.  This hearing represents the last  chance for anyone hoping to  forestall or alter the project and  it is essential that opposition  prepare as strong a case as  possible.  To this end an organi  zational meeting of all parties  opposing the project has been  set for Sunday, October 16th at  2:00 p.m. in the Pender Harbour  Medical Clinic. Regional director  Jack Paterson has agreed to be  present to answer questions and  give advice. If you are concerned  about condominiums at Canoe  Pass or anywhere else in Area  'A', be there!  South Pender Harbour  water expansion  During the last two years the  South Pender Harbour Water  Board has undertaken an expansion programme in order to insure that the district be supplied  with an adequate water supply.  This programme has involved the  clearing of a considerable area  around the perimeter of McNeill  Lake, the storage reservoir.  With the raising of the original  dam height another three feet,  it has been possible to flood this  cleared area thus increasing our  water storage capacity very considerably. As a consequence,  however, of this clearing and  flooding, the quality of the water  has been temporarily affected.  The board wishes to correct this  situation.  Now that the fall, and winter  rainy season approaches, when  danger of water shortage has  diminished your Water Board  is addressing itself to the task of  improving the quality ofthe water  and has set into motion "Operation Cleanup".  During the last two weekends  your board members, maintenance crew, and several private  citizens have fertilized and seed  ed to grass a five-acre area  around the lake as well as clearing and burning considerable  snags and roots along the lake  margin. Much remains to be  done, and we are holding our next  "cleanup" on Sunday, October  18th. The board would welcome  volunteers, both young and old,  who would be available and willing to help at that time. We need  power saw operators, axemen,  and just plain "cleaner-uppers".  The rendezvous is at 9  a.m.   Sunday,   October  o'clock  16th   at  the Water Board intake and  chlorinating plant, situated just  by the Pender Harbour area  directory map on the Highway.  Come and bring your lunch for  a nice day at the lake! For-  further information you can call  Eric Brooks, 883-2547 or Bill  McNaughton 883-2267, or Doug  Orr at the Water Board office  on weekdays at 883-2511.

Thieves hit  newcomers  Thieves stole twelve brass  portholes and ten mahogany  bunks from a ship tied at Christie  Cove near Port Mellon last week.  The ship was a 143 foot ex-whale  spotter purchased by Mr. Car-  naby who intends to convert it  into a pleasure boat. Part of  the conversion would have been  to remove the bunks carefully  and perhaps reuse them, the  thieves had carelessly ripped  them out.  This is a grave disapointment  to the Carnabys as it sets their  plans back considerably. What is  doubly disconcerting is the fact  that the boat had been brought  up to the Sound only three days  previously.

Law  Talk  by Gordon Hardy  Environmental Law  Number 3 in a series of five.  A man's home is not always  his castle. Sometimes your  rights as a property owner  are just not powerful enough  to protect your property from  damage by pollution.  A good example is the  McKee vs KVP Company  case which reached the courts  in 1948. The case involved  riparian, or water rights.  McKee was an Ontarion  tourist camp operator, and he  and his neighbours depended  for their livelihood on the good  fishing and clean water of a  stream which ran through  their property.  Their livelihood was threatened when the KVP Company,  a pulp and paper company  upstream began to pollute the  stream. The fish began dying.  The water became undrink-  able. ���������'���': 7.  McKee and friends took the  pulp and paper-company to  court, arguing that the common law should 'protect their  right to enjoyr their own  property. The judge, looking  at the precedents, agreed and  forbade the company from  continuing to pollute the  stream.  Unfortunately the judges  decision shut the company  down, in effect, since it  couldn't operate without  fouling the stream. A nearby  town, dependent on the company for jobs, was in crisis.  Finally, the Ontario government intervened, setting aside  the common law decision of  the judge with a piece of  legislation.  Usually, however, judges  are less scrupulously concerned about -the private  citizen's    interests. They  often take into consideration  the interests of the public  at large as well.  Recently, a judge had to  decide between a man who  complained that a nearby  gravel pit was disturbing his  right to peace and quiet on  his own land, and the community for whom the gravel  put meant jobs and money.  The   judge   ruled    that    the  gravel pit had to remain shut  down during the night and the  man had to put up with the  nuisance during the day.  Thus, he found a compromise  between the citizen's common  law property rights and the  public interest.  This tendency to compromise away the rights of individuals has come under  attack. Vancouver lawyer Tim  Mackenzie claims that, in  general, "The courts are  bound by tradition and training to place a value on everything according to the rules ot"  the marketplace. They rarely  recognize the losses caused by  a worsening in the quality  of living as a result of the  spoiling ofthe environment."  Mackenzie adds. "They  have difficulty balancing the  loss of recreational areas,  impairment of health, and unpleasant changes in lifestyles  against the employment-  creating and income-generating benefits, so-called, of an  industrial society."  Aside from environmental  damage to private property,  pollution is caused because  environmental considerations  generally take a back seat to  short term economic advantages. As the West Coast  Environmental   Law   Associa  tion tersely puts it, "The  present system tries to measure environmental quality in  terms of dollars and cents."  A report of the association  claims that, "It is a common  argument that short term  benefits such as jobs and  profits must outweight environmental considerations  that yield no tangible financial  benefits....  "The majority of political  leaders campaign on the basis  of more jobs, more industry.  more growth," often ignoring  the social and environmental  costs of technical expansion.  Concern for the environment seems to be making  some headway in the B.C.  labour movement. Earlier  this year the B.C. Federation  of Labour asked the provincial  government to halt or postpone three big development  projects worth thousands of  jobs for the sake of environmental protection.  In a brief submitted to the  government by the federation's pollution and environmental protection committee,  James Patterson writes,  "Everywhere we look in B.C.  there are signs of serious  environmental damage which  has occurred in the past  dozen years."  The brief, hotly contested  even within the labour movement, calls for the postponement or cancellation of the  Kitimat oil pipeline, citing  the possibility of immense  environmental damage. The  federation also wants the  government to stop the planned diversion of the McGregor  River near Prince George,  and strip mining in the East  Kootenay s.  While it says it recognizes  the value of the mining industry the labour federation  claims there is often a conflict  of interest between profits  and the environment.  Still for sortie within the  labour movement, it's economy over ecology. Clifton  Parker, a representative of  the International Union of  Operating Engineers reacted  angrily to the federation's  call. "%  "The workingman of B.C.  is entitled to better leadership," says Parker, whose  union is "fighting for jobs on  every front." Parker wants  the B.C. Federation of Labour,  "to stop this environmental'  type of publicity..."  "We don't want it and we  don't condone it."

Council for the  family with the participation of  the provincial government, religious bodies and community  agencies and the proclomation  and celebration of family month  in   May There were more  than ninety other recommendations concerning education,  housing, health, law, religion,  family life, native peoples, work,  leisure, etc., all of which were  referred to the Council for action.  Father T. A. Nicholson of  Sechelt attended that conference  on behalf of the Ministerial  Association and went on to organize the family month activities on the Sunshine Coast in  May of this year. From that  has developed a local committee  of the B.C. Council for the  Family with the aim of restoring  the prestige of the family as an  essential unit of a healthy community. The committee met in  September to discuss ways to  focus an awareness of the importance of the family to the  community, to encourage in  children that pride in family  from which pride in their community grows.  The October meeting addressed itself to one of those suggestions, an essay contest open  to both school children and the  community at large and a request  for elementary school children to  participate in a poster campaign  to illustrate family fun. "Are  families important?" was the  suggested essay topic, and prizes  will be something which the  family can enjoy together, an  occasion to celebrate on the  Sunshine Coast. A letter was  prepared to ask the School  Board's permission to present  these ideas to the teachers  Susan Frizzell of the Wilson  Creek Community Association  will attend the board meeting of  the B.C. Council for the Family  on October 20 - 21 in Vancouver.  The committee would welcome  representation from other groups  and individuals, particuarly with  a view to reaching communities  west of Sechelt.
