October 25,1977.  Fisheries officials pay surprise  visit to Madeira Park meeting  Fisheries officials made a surprise appearance at trie meeting,  held in Madeira Park on Wednesday, October 19th, to discuss  the issues raised by a recent Egmont meeting which was  called.to investigate the defunct fish farm, Moccasin Valley  Marifarms, in Egmont and the supply of salmon in the Gulf  generally. During the meeting the Fisheries men, Dr. Keith  Sandercock and Mr. Dick Crouter distributed a four-page  refutation of the points made by the fish farm proprietor Al  Meneely at the Egmont meeting and reported in the local press.  The story of the Egmont fish farm had previously been written  up in the Readers' Digest and in the August 13th, 1977, issue  of the Weekend Magazine.  In summation the statement issued by the Fisheries officials,  which was unsigned and not on Fisheries letterhead, said that  the problem was that "Meneely jumped into a complex aquaculture business that he knew nothing about." The statement  denied that, as was alleged in the Weekend Magazine article,  the Fisheries Service of Environment Canada conspired with  the Income Tax division of Revenue Canada to force him out  of business. "This is just not done!" declared the statement.  "Anyone in business knows that Income Tax investigators  look at anything that smells of a tax write-off venture...Income  Tax, without the help of Fisheries Service classified this as a  hobby farm  Creek which is a major salmon  stream and already has a federal  facility.  Another sore-point with the  ex-fish farmer was that the statement released by the Fisheries  officials during the meeting contained information concerning his  operation that he had been  assured, in writing would be  treated   as   confidential,      Me  neely's licence to farm is still ,  valid - a fact which seemed to '  surprise Dr. Sandercock'- and- he.1  consequently questioned , the?. .'  public dis-semination of infor^;  mation he had been assured was|;<  confidential. f'  The October 19th meeting also' ��  got down to.a more general disi;>  cussion of the supply of salm'oi||  in the Gulf. -XXXi  The second part of the Fisheries refutation dealt with the  question of egg supply to the fish  farm. Meneely maintains that  inadequate and late supply of  eggs made it impossible for him  to continue his efforts. The  statement maintains that he did  not get eggs simply because  none were available. Employees  of the fish farm in a letter in this  paper point out that Meneely  had been guaranteed 315,000  chinooks for 1974 and that this  represents the laying potential  of about 50 mature salmon.  The order was not filled. On the  question of whether or not the  eggs were late run or not the  statement of the Fisheries officials insists that the eggs supplied Meneely were "...in every  case taken from the peak of the  that are government operated.  Meneely countered by pointing  out when contacted by the Coast  News that during his years of  operation he had never had  anything like the disasters which  befell both the Capilano and  Qualicum hatcheries in 1975.  In Capilano, said Meenely, one  and a half million fish had died  when, according to the Fisheries  Department, chlorine from the  city water system had somehow  found its way into their hatchery  while at Qualicum that same  year, maintained Meneely,  450,000 salmon had suffocated  when maple leaves were allowed  to plug the water intake.  Some of the Fisheries Department statements that Meneely  particularly objected to were  that he did not in time realize  Plans for Gibson^  Marina shelved  ��  In an abrupt about face, Alderman Jim Metzler recommen-i ?s  ded to the Gibsons council at their meeting held on Tuesday^ 7  October 18th, that the proposed new marina in Gibsons harbour?!  not be proceeded with. Metzler said that the Federal Govern^ 7  ment had requested more detailed analysis of the traffic pat-; ��f  terns which would be using the new facility Tthan the; village* 7  at the present time had the resources to provide them with;, f  He said moreover that the present economic climate/had set p  him thinking that perhaps this was the wrong time for a major |:  outlay in this direction. . . /-..v^/^;/77777..|;  In lieu ��� of the marina Metzler felt that the.; .village ;couid i  proceed with such lesser expenditures as the .installation; of S.  a new launching ramp in the Bay area as well as7the cleaning XL  up of the foreshore area and the possibility of installing picnic f  tables in the vicinity. Metzler felt that some of the ground in %���  the area could be seeded and levelled for the recreational use X  of the village. ; |  "I think we should try to keep our project near the top of the f  priority list for future consideration, however,' 'said Metzler.  Meeting on condominium 1  turns rambunctious  In one of the most rambunctious  public meetings seen in Pender,  Harbour in many years, 108  area residents met Sunday  afternoon to express near-  unanimous    opposition   to : the  run or earlier."   The employees ^,t^  forhis fish farm, and that he Had  inadequate knowledge for the  venture he had undertaken.  Meneely pointed out that the first  thing he had done was instal a  water .heating system, and that  the delay in getting his salmon  to the ocean was occasioned by  the receipt of late-run eggs. On  the question of expertise, Me-  ndfely pointed out that he had the  benefit of a consulting report  inception, John Van Arsdell is  a qualified biologist with marine  emphasis and the other was also  university trained.  Meneely also stated that he.  particularly resented the implication left by the unsigned document from the Fisheries that his  venture was planned as a tax  write-off. He also again questioned how, when fish farm permits were supposed to be given  on streams that had no salmon  run, Union Carbide had obtained  a permit to farm on Robertson  say that they were told:by Jerry  Paine; at that time "Assistant  Hatchery Manager at Qualicum,  that they had no chance of getting  but late-run eggs and had implied  that this was a decision from the  department.  The Fisheries take exception  to the statement made that  Meneely's operation had a better  production rate and less disease  mortality than those hatcheries  from Dr. Dick Novel, the head of  Washington State Fish Hatcheries with 26 hatcheries in his care  and also the advice of Dr. Donaldson of the University of Washington staff who was the man responsible for the successful transfer of coho salmon to the Great  Lakes. Other experts consulted  include Dr. Van Stone, a biologist  in the West Vancouver Fisheries  and Dr. Bell from Nanaimo, an  expert on fish diseases. In addition, one member of Meneely's  staff at the fish farm from  its  proposed Millwood Condominium . people  ^&?^^^^!mn^'>:%^&&&-' 7'-"Harrison  a brief rejecting the, project;  on the basis of environmental���?;  protection, preserving the single|  family dwelling, character of thef  neighbourhood and, most impor  tantly, listening to'the wiltfof thej  Village  Clerk  Tom   Wood   looks  on  as  Mayor  Harold  Nelson  signs the  controversial  airport  Airport lease signed  lease  at  last  week's  Village Council.  meeting  of  the   Sechelt  *:  The controversial airport lease  Was   signed   by   Mayor   Harold  Nelsonv at   the   Sechelt   council  meeting last Wednesday, October  19th.77  The   decision   to   sign  ����� x \ V  - 4^v  ���at Canoe-Passr-?;rrhe meeting  was' a hearing called by the  Regional District to discuss a  zoning by-law amendment concerning portable trailers and also  controversial by-law 150 covering  a land-use contract to enable  the Millwood people to launch  their 14-unit condominium on  the Canoe Pass site. It was  the latter item that apparently  had drawn the crowd.  District Planner Robyn Addison  outlined       the       condominium  proposal, noting that it fulfilled  all   the   technical   requirements  of the district.. Regarding sewage  disposal    problems,    she    said  that the matter was being studied  by   engineers   and   "the   board  was more or less obliged to take  the word of the experts."  The meeting seemed in no mood  to accept any easy assurances,  however,  and  it  was  not   long  before       Addison,        Millwood  President      John       Westwood,  and Area A Director Jack Paterson  were  under  heavy  fire   by  angry    speakers    who   accused  them   of  being   partial   to   the  development and failing to heed  the   wishes  of the   community.  The   most   prolonged   applause  of the meeting was drawn by Joe  Harrison,     President     of     the  Ratepayers Association, who read  ^..   ^-:X[XX'M"sparked off an outcry from Jack  Perider*vRatepayers  Vice-President Pat Lane who presented a  400-name petition against the  condominium which he said had  been gathered in only four hours  on Saturday afternoon.  At one point Director Paterson  asked if there was anyone at  all present who had anything  to say in favour ofthe project.  Only    two    people    spoke    up.  The meeting broke open in a  series of accusations against  Paterson after Peninsula Times  reporter Kerra Lockhart revealed  to the meeting that Paterson  had told her he was going to  "withhold his vote" when the  issue next came up at the Regional Board. As he attempted  to justify himself, Paterson was  repeatedly   booed   and   jeered.  Wendy Skapski asked Paterson  how he could call himself a  representative of the area while  announcing his intention to deprive people of their only voice  on the issue. Paterson abruptly  declared the hearing at a close  "because we're getting off  the topic" then answered Skapski  that he considered himself a good  representative from the area.  "If yhou want to vote me out of  office, well that's your business,"  he said.  St. Mary's gets clean  bill of health  Children at Sechelt Elementary file past tables  loaded with nutritious fare. The occasion was  the school's marking of Nutrition Week.  St. Mary's Hospital came  through a recent accreditation  inspection with flying colours, it  was announced at a press con-,  ference held last week. The  accreditation inspection was  carried out by two inspectors  from Ontario, Dr. Jim Galloway  and Miss Fern Trout, R.N., who  is a graduate in hospital administration.  The business of accreditation  is something that hospitals submit to voluntarily. In fact, the  application booklet of the Canadian Council of Hospital Accreditation stresses in a foreword:  "The voluntary nature of accreditation is a value and a strength  that should not be overlooked. It  is a recognition by hospitals  and health practitioners of a  professional responsibility to  appraise their works, to evaluate  their results and to continually  improve their capabilities.    This  very fact of personal and institutional involvement and commitment holds the promise of better  care that cannot be legislated.  It must emerge, be fostered and  grow within each institutional  setting. It is a total task involving  all components of the health  team. It requires local direction  and dedication."  Hospital board chairman Gordon Hall officiated at the Friday  press conference and revealed  that St. Mary's has been granted  a three-year accreditation by the  inspecting team. Three types of  accreditation are possible. There  is a one-year accreditation which  is provisional in nature and by  implication calls for some improvement in the accredited  hospital; there is a two-year  accreditation -which is the standard accreditation and means  that the hospital in question  ��� Please   turn    to   Page    Nine  'R-iE. but he 'was- ruled-out of  order when he attempted to read  a prepared statement.  7"Mr. Brian Loewen, a member  of the Aero Club also had a brief  prepared, but like Mr. Pope,  he was not in time to have it included in the evenings agenda.  A 31-year resident of Sechelt,  Mrs. Steele, complained to council   about   the   proposal   for   a  nursery   on   Shorecliff   Avenue.  Her contention was that the area  had  had   very   little   upkeep   in  the   past.      Close   proximity   of  the  schools,   she  felt,   made   it  impossible for emergency vehic-  ' les to gain access when  school  meetings were in progress and in  addition    garbage    was    being  strewn about the area.   She felt  that by allowing in a commercial  operation, the problems would be  compounded.  Later in the meeting the application by Mrs. Gibbons for rezoning was turned down on the  recommendation ofthe planner.  In a letter, the village planner,  Mr. Roy, outlined the recommendations of the committee appointed to settle the problems of  zoning on Mr. Killam's property.  It was the feeling of the committee that Mr. Killam should  not have taken the initiative in  developing his property, and  council apparently would have to  insist on the removal of lumber '  from Lot A and that the other  parcels   presently    outside    the  Water  Some clarification was attempted in the wording of the referendum which will go before the  people of the Village of Gibsons  concerning the lin.k-up of their  water system with the regional  system which has been proposed.  The prime mover of the clarification was Alderman Metzler  who said that if the people of  the village voted in favour of the  link-up that would make way for  the village council to negotiate  with the regional board.  In other council business it  was reported that the stairs to  the wharf in Gibsons Harbour  were in a deteriorating condition.  It was ; agreed that inquiries  should be made to determine if  it was 'a village responsibility  to n aintain these stairs or  whether they belonged to  Smitty's Marina.  zoning by-laws should be made to  conform.  Mr. Koch's request for a temporary occupancy permit for his  building adjacent to the Golden  City Restaurant was acceptable  - to council;--;-^:------So--v:^-.:.*^-:i��^;i7:,  vAn application for use of the  old Credit Union building for  classes involving. 18 adults was  met with mixed feelings. Due to  parking difficulties and zoning  regulations it was felt that  another building would be more  desirable and council expressed  willingness to assist in the arrangements.  Mrs. Kent has been appointed  returning officer for the upcoming  elections with Mr.: Wood acting  as polling clerk.

Dr. Perry said that village clerk  Copland had been technically  correct under Section 21 of the  Municipal Affairs Act in putting  a small legal notice in one pf the  local papers but he felt that since  very few property owners  were  involved   courtesy    might    have;  seen  that they  were  personally;  informed.

In another matter Dr. Perry  criticized the building of the  Gibsons Dog Pound. lie said  that he had three times offered.-  Nominations for local office  beginning to  in  Nominations are beginning to  trickle in for the various local  boards and councils with elections  upcoming early next month.  For the regional board. Jack  Paterson, director of Area "A",  has filed his nomination papers  as has Charles Lee of Selma  Park who will contest Area "C".  Incumbent director for Area "C",  Barry Pearson has taken out his  papers and is expected to file  them shortly. There may be as  many as two other contestants  in Area "C". Also on the regional board, there have been no  nominations as yet for Area "E"  and the representation for the  villages of Gibsons and Sechelt  are also wide open with both  present incumbents, Metzler of  Gibsons and Morgan Thompson  of Sechelt, indicating that they  are unwilling to continue in the  double roles.  For the Sechelt council, Mayor  Harold Nelson has indicated that  he will run again for the mayoral'  spot. The only two contestants  who have so far filed for the two  vacant aldermanic seats are incumbent Thompson and former  regional board planner Adrian  Stott. Alderman Ernie Booth  has decided not to run after  fourteen years of community  service. It is possible that  there will be two more contestants for the Sechelt seats in  the persons of Hugh Baird and Ed  Nicholson, though there is  nothing definite on their candidacy at press time.  In Gibsons, too, the picture is  still   indefinite.      Mayor   Larry  Labonte will definitely run again  ��� Please   turn   to    Page    Nine  and Alderman Stuart Metcalfe  will defintely not run. It is understood that Alderman Metzler  intends to contest one of the two  aldermanic vacancies but has not  yet filed his papers. No other  candidate has so far come forward  for the other vaca ncy.  Finally, the school board also  presents a rather confused picture as yet. In the case of thw  school board there are two seats  in rural Area "A" which is defined as being from Earls Cove to  Sechelt, in one of which incumbent Peter Precesky is currently  in the middle of a two-year term.  The other incumbent Kay Dombrowski has indicated her intention to run again. Sechelt  incumbent Maureen Clayton is  in the middle of a two-year term.  Area "B" encompasses the rest 7  of the Sunshine Coast with the;  exception   of  Gibsons   and   has;  three seats.   School board chair^  man Celia  Fisher has  indicated  that  she will  not  run  again  in  Area  "B". while trustee  Klaus  Spiekermann is still considering  the   matter.        Presently    committed to run in  Area  "B" arc  trustee Don Douglas. Tim Frizzell  and  recent  arrival   Jock  Smith.  Gibsons' trustee. Jo-ann Rottluff  has  indicated  that  she  will  be  running   again   for   the   village  seat. No one else has as yet come  forward to contest  the  Gibsons-  position.  Nominations will close for  all of the vacancies on the local  boards and councils on October  31st.  Trustees emphasize  referendum support  In response to a front page story which appeared in the Coast  News last week portraying the school trustees of School District  #46 as being critical of the proposed recreational referendum  which is upcoming next month. School Board Chairman Celia  Fisher phoned the newspaper to emphasize that, while the story  did accurately represent some areas of concern that the trustees  have, the board is staunch in its support of the recreation  referendum as a whole. "We are most appreciative of the  efforts of the people oi. the Recreation Commission," said  Fisher, "We realize that they are trying to come to grips with  the very difficult problem of recreational facilities for an area  as geographically spread out as this one and in so doing are  performing a service for the entire region. We felt that we had  to express some concern on the issues mentioned in the Coast  News article but would make it clear to the people of the Sunshine-Coast that we do appreciate the aims and efforts of the  Recreation Commission and are largely supportive."

CNA  Condominium  One can but sympathize with Area  "A" director Paterson on the heels of  what seems to have been a fairly traumatic meeting held in Pender Harbour last  Sunday. It would appear that the representative to the regional board was  caught publicly in something of a cleft  stick. He of a certainty is not the first,  nor will he be the last, politician caught  trying to please both opposing sides on  a political issue. There is no doubt  here of the essential decency and good  intentions of the man who has devoted  many hours to public service in his area.  We must regret, however, his assertion  that he had told a reporter from another  paper that he would withold his vote on  the condominium project because he had  been quoted by the Coast News "without  his permission". The quote in question  did not come from an informal, off-the-  record aside but was made by the director  at a public meeting held in Pender Harbour the previous Sunday. The statements of a public man made at a public  meeting surely cannot be considered confidential, neither does a newspaper need  permission to report such statements.  If, as was reported in the Coast News  last week, Paterson publicly said at the  conclusion of the meeting held on Sunday, October 16th, that he would oppose  the condominium project - and he has  not denied that he did - then he has no  reason in the world to expect not to be  quoted accordingly. If he found it  embarrassing to be so quoted then it  can only be because he had been saying  otherwise elsewhere.  Again the conflicting pressures brought to bear on public figures on controversial issues such as this make Pater-  son's plight both understandable and  human. It would appear, though, that  the director had either not thought  through his position, right or wrong,  clearly enough or that he had underestimated the degree of opposition that  this particular project was capable of  generating. He may have thought that  if he smoothed the matter out at the  first meeting nothing more would come  of it. He appears to have been wrong  on several counts.  It is, however, not possible to be all  things to all men and it is a salutary  lesson   for   politicians   to   occasionally  have that fact brought forcibly  home.  No man is expected to be right on every  issue  and  from  every  point of view.  Director Paterson seems to have made  the mistake of trying that impossible feat.  One must also question his wisdom in  telling a newspaper reporter prior to a  public hearing designed  to  guide  his  course of action what that course of action  was to be, particularly when the course  of action he indicated flew in the face of  assurances he had already given publicly  to some segment of his electorate.    If,  however,  the  situation  which  erupted  over the condominium question in Pender Harbour serves to indicate to elected  representatives   that   the   populace   is  capable of concerned alertness then Mr.  Paterson's difficulties will have proved  of service to the peqple of the Sunshine  Coast.  Fish   farm  It seems that the unannounced arrival  of' Fisheries Department officers at the  meeting held in Madeira Park last week  may have raised as many questions as  they hoped to lay to rest.   The tactic of  distributing a  lengthy   document  at  a  public meeting where no time is available  for its perusal or refutation is a questionable one and some of the  statements  made seem to fly directly in the face of  the evidence.     Two former employees  of the Egmont fish farm drove nearly  a hundred miles round trip last week to  deliver their objections to the statements  made by the  Fisheries  officials.     This  indicates a considerable degree of commitment to the abandoned fish farm and  its owner, Al Meneely.    One of those  former employees is now making much  more money as a commercial fisherman  than he did as an aquafarm employee  and one cannot doubt the idealism with  which he had addressed himself to the  farming of salmon nor the high regard  in which he holds his former employer.  That Al Meneely did not know what he  was doing or that he was doing what he  was doing simply as a tax write-off,  implied by the Fisheries statement,  seems most unlikely in the face of the  evidence, both human and documented.  Still nagging and unsatisfactory is  the question of the fish farm licence  granted Union Carbide. Not only has it  been granted in opposition to previously  stated policy to a foreign-owned company  but it has been granted to start a fish  farm on a stream which already has a  hefty salmon run, again in-defiance of  a previously stated Fisheries policy.  The unsigned statement on plain  paper distributed at the Madeira Park  meeting has been studied and discussed  with the men who worked on Al Meneely's fish farm who now have absolutely nothing to either hide or to gain  from the dispute and there are just too  many discrepancies, too many nagging  doubts for one to feel that the matter  has been suitably laid to rest.  .from the files of Coast News  5 YEARS AGO  Motorists, particularly those travelling  towards the S-turn from the cemetery  end are warned that the checkboard  sign at the end of the straight away  has been moved and extreme caution  is necessary to stay on the road. Up to  Monday, six cars missing . the sign  found themselves in or on the edge of  the gully. Two went well down and  one was badly damaged.  10 YEARS AGO  By-law 186 was given three readings  at the Gibsons council meeting. It is an  historic by-law because it can change the  name of the municipality from Gibson's  Landing to Gibsons. To become a law,  it must obtain a 60% majority vote at  the next municipal election.  Burglars broke into the Gibsons  Kruse Drug Store last weekend and made  off with narcotic type drugs and some  cash. RCMP reports that the burglars  knew what they wanted and they suspect  that the drugs are now in the possession  of the residents of certain parts of 4th  Avenue in Vancouver.  15 YEARS AGO  B.C. Hydro has a new symbol. It  depicts British Columbia and the vast  scope of the utility's operations, extending from the hinterland to the sea.  Basically,   the   new  symbol   is   a   twin  diamond shape, forming a stylized H  for Hydro. Top half of the two vertical  diamonds is green, representing the  forest covered mountains of B.C. The  bottom half is turquoise, depicting reflections of the mountains in the water  areas of the province, the source of  Hydro power.  20 YEARS AGO  What's new in cars: The bold lines of  the Buick's 1958 styling are exemplified  in the luxury and beauty of the Buick  Special. Dual headlights, and a dazzling  new grill adds breath and lowness to  the front end design. The Special, which  is mounted on a 122 inch wheelbase,  boasts new and bigger brakes. The new  miracle air ride and either variable pitch  or the revolutionary flight pitch Dyna-  flow are optional equipment.  25 YEARS AGO  Paul Cote, engineer in charge of the  building of the Port Mellon road, said  that the work is progressing well. He  said the contractors had run into some  difficulties with boulders "as big as  auditoriums" and were now working on  3,500 feet of swamp which made construction difficult.

L. R. Peterson  Musings  John Burnside  I had the same type of relationship with Shakespeare in high  school that most people have. I  was for the most part mystified  and bored and the classes for  the most part consisted of usually  tiresome hunts for "images" or  "figures of speech" through what  was virtually incomprehensible  language. The whole exercise  seemed the most unnecessary  bore and for the life of me I  couldn't imagine why everybody  had been bothering with it for  three hundred and fifty years.  The initial eye-opener came for  me on the Labour Day weekend of  1956 when I travelled to Stratford  under the urging of a friend  called Roy Brown whom I had met  in Montreal and who shared an  interest with me in dramatics.  I think I've already written in  the Coast News about how I  came to be interested in theatre  in the first place - a scrawny,  bespectacled schoolyard urchin  playing soccer on an evening  when two tidy friends were attending the drama club. I was cold  there in the yard - it was my  turn to be goalkeeper - so I went  along to see what they were up  to and formed an attachment for  the actual business of putting on  plays, as opposed to the academic  study of texts, which has never  left us since I first tasted its  complex joys.  The academic study of the text  of Shakespeare which I encountered in high school seemed to  have very little to do with the  hobby which I pursued with  great zeal in my own time. By  the time I left Scotland at the  age of fifteen I was a veteran of  some ten plays and had already  directed a couple. My interest  survived the trans-Atlantic  crossing and found itself in a  surprising set of absurd and often  abortive circumstances in Montreal about which I may write if  I can ever steel myself to the  remembering.  During one of these adventures  I befriended Roy Brown, an  effeminate and witty lad who was  mad keen for theatre with a  capital 'T' and who did a first  rate imitation of Mae West. He  pressured me about the absolute  necessity of attending Stratford  and with much grumbling I  acquiesced. Somewhere I had  the gnawing feeling that there  must be something to a man's  work that had lasted through the  changing tastes of three hundred  years and several generations.  The story of our going and  coming was yet another saga of  long distance travel in the most  hopelessly inadequate of vehicles, akin to the Morris Minor  convertible story that I have told  here and which took place some  four years later but my subject  here is Shakespeare and the  absurdity of that journey must  wait another telling. It is sufficient to say that after a comically  eventful twenty-hour drive from  Montreal we arrived just about in  time for the matinee production  of my first Shakespeare play.  Let me tell you that, since 1 had  done all the driving, the thought  of three matinee hours of Shakes  peare followed by three more in  the evening for which we had  bought tickets left me some distance short of feeling that I was  " in Paradise despite the truly  splendid edifice which is the  Stratford Shakespearean Festival  '- Theatre.  The   first   play   was   Twelfth  - Night,   of  which   I   had   never  ^ heard.       Half-way   through   it,  however,    I   was    aching   with  laughter wishing the action would  stop long enough for me to get  rid ofthe,.laughing pains and I,  was  wondering  whaf,.in ,God's  name teachers had d.one..t6.;pcipr,  Shakespeare   and  with   a   fresh  elation   discovering   for   myself  one of the   master  creators   of  the world.   The play is about a  charming   young   thing   who   is  shipwrecked   virtually   alone   in  a fantasy country  called  lllyria  , and  to  protect   her  virtue   disguises herself as a young boy.  Shortly thereafter she has become  the page boy of the Duke and is  trusted bearer of love  notes  in  a    protracted    unrequited    love  affair   with   the   lovely   Olivia.  The   main  plot   has   Viola,   the  shipwrecked girl, falling madly in  love with the Duke while loyally  conveying his amorous messages  to Olivia who is so taken with  the Duke's charming and witty  young page  boy that  she falls  madly in  love  with  the  bearer  of messages, surely one of the  most hopeless triangles in literature.  Meanwhile at Olivia's household there is a drunken kinsman  of the lady, Sir Toby Belch - a  precursor of the incomparable  Falstaff - who is longer on thirst  than he is on funds and is milking  a simpering fool of a wealthy  aristocrat   named    Sir    Andrew  Aguecheek on the promise that  he, Sir Toby, will win him the  hand of the lady Olivia. There is  a puritanical steward of the  household named Malvolio who  detests the convivial > Belch and  aspires to be master of the house  himself. Add to the mixture  some of Shakespeare's bawdiest  serving wenches, stir well and  serve.  In that cast of twenty years  ago were some names to conjure  with.      The   magnificent   Irish  actress Siobahn McKenna played  .Viola,-    Christopher      Plummer ���  played   the   effete   Sir   Andrew  Aguecheek   to   such   boisterous  effect that he broke a leg falling  down the cellar  stairs  and yet  met his obligations in that part  and as  Hamlet,  which  he  was  playing in repertory, first in  a  wheelchair and then on a cane.  He was  recuperated . by Labour  Day and when the time came to  fall down the cellar stairs again  the   entire   audience    held    its  breath and of course he milked  it before crawling into view again,  dishevelled-  and   to   great   applause.   The boisterous Douglas  Campbell played Sir Toby Belch,  Lloyd   Bochner   was   the   Duke.  I forget who played the  lovely  Olivia  but  I do remember that  the part of Feste the clown was  played by none  other  than our  most familiar Bruno Gerussi.  After the performance I was  hooked. I attended Stratford  every year until I left Eastern  Canada and saw many marvellous  shows but Twelfth Night had  been my first and one of the  best and occupied a special  place in my affections.

Two representatives of  the Fisheries Department, Keith  Sandercock and Richard Crouter,  mid-way through the meeting,  handed out a sheet, unsigned  and not on Fisheries letterhead,  supposedly refuting John Massey's story about Moccasin  Valley Marifarms, which appeared in Weekend Magazine. It  should be noted that this is only  the ' Second public response' by  the "Fisheries" service to any of  the stories about Allan Meneely's  salmon farm. This sheet contains so many inaccuracies that  as former employees of Moccasin  Valley Marifarms we feel compelled to write and set the record  straight:  Mr. Crouter and Mr. Sandercock claimed that they never contacted anyone at Income Tax  about Al Meneely. To us as employees/ it seemed very coincidental that two months after  telling us, in October 1974 we  would have no eggs that year to  carry on our business, Income  Tax does a tax audit and classifies  Moccasin Valley as a hobby farm  because we have insufficient fish  to show a profit. The sheet  also, claims that they had the  hobby farm classification lifted  but it, was not them or anyone  else in the Vancouver office, but  a Mr. Levelton in Ottawa, and  that was after a great deal of  energy had been expended by  Mr. Meneely.  It is a fact that Fisheries  guaranteed in writing 315,000  Chinook eggs for 1974. At 5000  to 8000 eggs per female, it would  only take SO mature femals  to fill that order! Yet the order  was not filled. Any commercial  fisherman knows that this is an  insignificant proportion of even  the smallest spring salmon runs.  MUSINGS:  Continued    from    Page    Two:  the paper together, when I got a  phone call asking me if I didn't  think it was time we tried some  Shakespeare around here and  why didn't we do Twelfth Night, I  threw caution to one side, went  immediately into training and  said "Right! let's have a crack  at it." By the time this column  appears the. initial and organizational meeting will have been  held but the casting is all wide  open and if you too would like  to take "a crack at it" attend  one of the meetings which will  be held initially at Elphinstone  on Mondays and Wednesdays  and we'll see what we can do.  The Fisheries statement claims  that we were not given late run  eggs. However, Jerry Paine,  at the time Qualicum's Assistant  Hatchery Manager, told us we  had no chance of getting anything else but late-run eggs  and implied that this was a  decision from higher-up. The  consequence of this, is that the  salmon are not ready for the  ocean the first year; they have to  be held over and fed until the  second year, and this makes the  business an uneconomic proposition.  Their next glaring error is  stating that we did not have  adequate hot water to ensure  accelerated growth. In fact,  we had a hot water supply in  the hatchery from the very beginning, and by 1974 had one of  the 'more advanced' de-aerating  continuous flow hot water delivery systems for salmonoid  rearing in North America. If  Sandercock had spent more than  half an hour at the fish farm on  his only visit, he would have  known this.  Sandercock claims our disease  record was no better than government hatcheries. Never was a  pathological fresh-water disease  diagnosed at Moccasin Valley  after many tests for those diseases by. Nanaimo Biological  Station research staff. This is  more than he can say for any  of his hatcheries.  Sandercock and Crouter in  their anonymous statement compare our production of 20,000  pounds of pen reared fish to  larger figures produced by Capilano and Big Qualicum hatcheries. What they don't say is  that these larger figures are  produced by release-return or  sea-ranching progams, something which we were never permitted to do. Had we been permitted to carry on sea-ranching,  not only would our production  have been higher, but commercial  and sports fishermen would have  benefitted by catching their  share of a run created on an  otherwise barren stream.  A fairer comparison of production would have been between  Moccasin Valley and the only  Fisheries aquaculture program  at that time at the Nanaimo  Biological Research Station.  Our little operation exceeded  their multi-million dollar project  in production and viewed on a  dollar for dollar basis, or as the  economists say, on a cost-benefit  ratio, we did far better. Incidentally, the production figures  that. were released the other  night by Sandercock and Crouter  were guaranteed in writing, by  Fisheries to .be . confidential:  Does this say something about;  their trustworthiness?  We could go further, but in  the interests of brevity will leave  it there. Al Meneely had proved  he was a successful businessman.  He had advice from eminent  salmonid biologists, Hke Dr.  Donaldson of the University of  Washington and Dick Noble,  then head of Washington State's  hatchery program; He had a  graduate fish biologist on staff.  He had the ideal site and the  right equipment. All he didn't  have was the eggs.  We are convinced that had  Meneely shown a suitable obsequiousness and been willing  to hire the services of the moonlighting group of civil servants  he would still be in the business  of farming salmon.

We have  already arranged a cleaning party  and plan to have the littered  places spic and span by Friday,  October 20.  Garbage cans have been requested since the beginning of  October from both the village  council and the school board but  have not yet been received.  Littering is a community problem as well as a student problem,  how would a fine help? How  many fines have there been in  the past year for adults that  litter? Do the adults set a good  example?  Perhaps D. W. Steele would  like to visit our school to see  some positive things which our  students are involved in. If so,  she is warmly welcomed.  Ruth McCaughtrie  .. Chairman of Chatelech  Cleaning Party  Editor:  May I again take space in  your paper regarding the litter  in St. Hilda's Churchyard lane?  This time I would like to thank  the students of Chatelch School  for the excellent clean up job  they did.  I regret it was necessary to  have to write to the press and  to go before the Sechelt village  council to rectify a condition  that should not have happened.  It is my sincere hope that it  won't happen again.  D.W.Steele  Sechelt, B.C.  About CARE  Pilot view  Editor:  For too long now, we've been  inundated with front page press  releases featuring a special interest group with the misnomer  C.A.R.E. We see little or nothing  in the press of new sidewalks,  streetlighting, paving, etc. Is  council getting anything else  done in the meetings, or is it  simply not newsworthy?  fit seems you are a sounding  board for confused, uninformed,  erratic, non-representatives  trying to help M.O.T. regulate  the most regulated endeavour on  the globe - flying. So, as a member of the newly formed B.A.R.F.  - Barnstormers Against Regulated Flying - a non-society directly  opposed to I don't C.A.R.E.,  I demand equal press. (A photo  might be nice so people will  know who to hate.)  Here are some recommendations and demands requiring  urgent attention by council:  1. B.A.R.F. demands all  members of council who are responsible for streets and roads  and who also belong to the British  Columbia or Dominion Auto  Associations resign NOW due to  conflict of interest.  2. B.A.R.F. recommends that  all properties developed on the  peninsula during the 17 years  Tyee Airways and the Aero  Club have been serving the community, be dismantled so we  pilots can have our mid-air  collisions safely over unpopulated  forest.  3.. ^Strong .pressure, jmust. be  brought to bear on the provincial  government to eliminate the unfair competition our local air  carriers have by making sure the  ferry strike remains unresolved.  An even better solution would be  to disband the ferry service  altogether and turn Highway 101  into a bicycle path. (Adrian Stott  would surely back me on that  one.)  4. Council should use its influence with the omnipotent  M.O.T. and urge more airports  be built on the peninsula and all  the way up coast, so land planes  could have equal rights with  float plans and be within gliding  distance of a strip at all times.  5. Council should set up a  Chronic Cranks Committee so  that they would not have to waste  time that should be devoted to  village business listening to unofficial crackpots such as C.A.R.E. and B.A.R.F. The C.C.C.  would direct said groups to  proper government agencies or  psychiatric care.  6. In the interest of reviving  the pioneering spirit of flying,  the villages of Gibsons and  Sechelt should appropriate funds  for building a barn at the airport  for members of B.A.R.F. to practice flying into. It would probably  surpass the Beachcomber's economic impact on the peninsula  as a tourist attraction. No lease  would be required between  B.A.R.F. and the villages, because after two or three practice  runs the barn should be reduced  to kindling.  7. No meetings are to be  held with either M.O.T., Tyee  Airways, village councils, the  Aero Club, or I don't C.A.R.E.  without equal representation  from B.A.R.F. It is time for logic  and fair play.  Well, of course, the above  tirade is ludicrous and nobody  should pay serious mind to it.  Hopefully people would pay  C.A.R.E. the same respect. Yet,  it seems C.A.R.E., because of  the appetite of .the press for  sensationalism, has succeeded in  stirring up people, some of whom  never paid airplanes any heed  before, to the point of checking  registrations with binoculars.  Why are there no mass suicides  among the people around Porpoise Bay who bear the brunt of  aircraft noise around here?  Exactly how many members do  you have, C.A.R.E., and just how  many .people -da ty,ou, spiVyocife?_  Coast News, October 25,1977  rously suggest to represent?  Could it be, Mr. Lee, you used all  the free press you got as an  exposure-getting process to further your political ambitions?  I would venture that if a group  were to organize in "an attempt to  penalize or restrict your use of  your Cadillac in any way, (and  there are many people who don't  particularly like cars) Mr. Lee,  the noise of your indignant bellowing would probably reach  Human Rights Commission in  Ottawa, and for sure to those  powerful lobbiers, the auto associations. Yet this is exactly  what your group is trying to do  to all forms of aviation locally.  Neither we pilots nor the omniscient bureaucracy need your  help, C.A.R.E., to make flying  so expensive that we end up  being grounded. You'll be in  glee to note a government  proposal to hike aviation gas  surtaxes 450% to compensate  for landing fees which are hard  to administer.

Coast News, October 25,1977.  GOODBYE TO THE GROANER  1977 is certainly a year for the  passing of pop-music legends.  First Elvis Presley and now Bing  Crosby, the old Groaner himself  gone down for the count, fittingly-  enough, on a golf-course, engrossed in the sport that was  almost as synonymous with his  name as crooning. Presley's  death was perhaps the more  tragic for he was cut down in  his prime but the passing of  Crosby is much more awesome.  Like Satchmo Armstrong and  Duke Ellington, he seemed to  have been around forever, a  veritable show-business institution, whose illustrious career  spanned decades of popular  music from the scat-singing  Rhythm-Boys days with Paul  Whiteman in the Twenties to  his just-completed and highly-  successful English tour. Twice  in recent years, Crosby had survived physical crises, first, a  major lung operation and just  this spring, a serious fall from a  stage. The man seemed virtually  indestructible but in the end,  a heart-attack rang down the  curtain.  I must have first become aware  of Bing Crosby through films in  the early Forties. I suppose I  had heard his records and radio  shows earlier than that but total  recognition of him as a personality, came with such films as Road  to Zanzibar, Sing You Sinners  and Birth of The Blues. The  urbane, nonchalant persona that  Crosby projected in these films  was instantly likeable as he  ambled through the light storylines, pausing every so often to  croon something timelessly romantic like Moonlight Becomes  You to his leading lady and the  world in general. Bing was  blessed with a profusion of  attractive leading-ladies ranging  from glacial blonde beauties like  Grace Kelly to sultry dark charmers such as Dorothy Lamour.  Lamour was the constant Loreli  who entranced both Crosby and  his fast-talking sidekick. Bob  Hope in the assorted exotic  locales of their numerous Road  pictures. Hope tried hard but  Lamour, by each film's end,  invariably exited on the arm of  the suave Crosby. The immensely-popular Road films were  quite unique in cinematic history  and much of their success was  due to the witty interplay between Hope and Crosby. The two  Pages  from a Li fe-Log  Peter Trower  men worked together marvelously  and were close friends in real  life. Ironically, Crosby, Hope  and Lamour had planned a final  picture together to be called The  Road to The Fountain of Youth.  Both Lamour and Hope paid  moving tribute to their fallen  fellow-trouper in recent interviews.  Bing Crosby made many films  from the early Thirties on. For  the most part, these were light-  hearted excursions, long on the  . songs and comedy. In 1943,  he essayed the off-beat role of a  priest in the poignant film Going  My Way, aided and abetted by  the great Irish character-actor,  Barry Fitzgerald. This film was  essentially the same amalgam of  songs and wry humour but pro-  founder elements were touched  upon also and the sheer charm of  Crosby's performance won him  an Academy Award. In his later  film career, Crosby discarded  his easygoing crooner image on  several occasions and essayed  straight dramatic roles in films  like Little Boy Lost and Man On  Fire. In these pictures, he displayed a serious side and a much  wider acting-range. His most  impressive effort along these  lines was a Clifford Odet's The  Country Girl where he portrayed  an alcoholic has-been with  singular conviction. Perhaps  the most completely uncharacteristic part Crosby ever tackled  was in a TV movie called Dr.  Cook's Garden where he played  a smalltown ��� physician with a  disturbing penchant for wholesale euthanasia.  But despite his many film  successes, Crosby will always be  remembered primarily as a  singer. He sold a staggering  amount of records during his  four-decade career and for most  of his peak years, was voted the  post popular singer in the world.  White Christmas remains the  best-selling single record of all  time and this song alone would  assure him of immortality. But  he had many great hits in addition  to this perennial classic: .The  Blue of the Night; Small Fry;  Accentuate The Positive; Blue  Hawaii; True Love - the list  is virtually endless. Crosby recorded  with  everyone from  the  Andrews Sisters to Louis Armstrong and his own oldest son,  Gary. His distinctive style was  credited to a benign nodule on  his vocal chords and it was a  style that no one could mistake.  Crosby continued to sing and  make records until the last and  the voice, although it darkened  and deepened, retained its essential timbre to an uncanny degree.  Shortly after his death, Bob  Smith of C.B.C.'s Hot Air devoted part of his program to a  Crosby memorial, contrasting two  songs from his earliest period  with a recent recording. Despite  the passage of time, the old magic  was still there.  The main criticism levelled  against Crosby's singing was  that he invariably took a middle-  of-the-road approach, eschewing  experimentation and working  with well-disciplined studio musicians who played it straight from  the charts. This is certainly true  but then he never made any  pretense of being a jazz singer.  Crooning was what the public  expected of him and Bing Crosby  was a crooner par excellence.  Curriously enough however, he  was something of a maverick in  his early years, both in his singing and his behaviour. He hung  about speakeasies, participated  in all-night jam-sessions and  once served a month for drunken  driving. The records that survive  from this time exemplify a different Crosby, much more freewheeling and palpably influenced  by black music. He often recorded with Duke Ellington and  other black bands. His shift to  a more-conservative style is often  credited to the death of his friend  and accompanist Eddie Lang in  1933.  There is a similar parallel  in the career of Frankie Laine who  abandoned a largely jazz-oriented  style with the death of his pianist-  partner Carl Fischer in the early  Fifties.  Another factor that undoubtedly helped bring an end to Crosby's youthful hell-raising jazz-  period was his marriage to first  wife, Dixie Lee. The union produced four sons and the Crosby,  family became one of the more  stable family units in Hollywood.  The marriage was devoid of the  scandals and intrigues that  marred and destroyed so many  relationships in the movie capital.  After his wife's death from cancer, Crosby married again, this  time an actress called Kathryn  Grant, thirty years his junior.  Despite the vast age difference,  the second marriage was as successful as the first and produced  several more children.  Apart from golf and fatherhood, Crosby was an ardent  fisherman in his moments away  from show business. Brought up  in Washington State, he loved  the Pacific Northwest and spent  much time in British Columbia.  He was a familiar figure around  Campbell River and other west-  coast fishing areas. The tale of  his early being refused service  at the Vancouver Hotel because  of his sloppy dress and unshaven  appearance is a long-standing  local legend. Unlike some of  his reactionary friends such as  John Wayne and Bob Hope,  Crosby remained a man of liberal  views and was always sympathetic towards the underdog.       ,.*'  Harry Lillis Crosby was in the  final analysis, a tribute to his'  profession. He was well aware  ofthe pitfalls of fame and eschew-,  ing power-hunger and false airs,  remained a creditable human  being to the end. His records  and films will live on but his  physical passing leaves a void'  that can never be filled. Another1  giant has gone to his rest.

Wilson  Last Wednesday evening,  October 19th, Manfrog Alive  Theatre presented an original  two act play at the Twilight  Theatre. The audience which  filled half of the available seats  seemed generally pleased by  the performance judging by  their enthusiastic guffaws and  applause.  The story which was loosely  based on the group's eight years  experience doing the summer  circus on Denman Island (their  home) was written by Jon More-  land who seems to be a major  force in the company. Jon also  wrote and performed the theme  song as well as playing the bad-  guy lead role of "Majesto" the  strongman.  The story reads like a morality  play centering around the efforts  of the egotistical Majesto to take  over the Dr. Feelright travelling  show. He is opposed in his  efforts by the handsome young  magician Stupendo and Rosa the  fortune teller who manages the  show through medium-mystic  contact with the "producer"  who we suspect is her deceased  husband, the former owner. Although Majesto manages by  blackmail and coercion to temporarily silence the alcoholic  Dr. Feelright along with the  lovely adolescent Glitter; they, in  a  meeting called  to determine  the future of the show confess  the wrongness of their ways,  and all walk out leaving Majesto,  alone to do his show his way.,  In the attempt to lift the greatest,  weight ever (symbolically _ to.  stand as one man . nwanted, un-ri  loved and shoulder the load)  Majesto dies. So it ends.  Although the. play, I thought,  began and ended weakly (the .  fault of the writer) it contained  some very fine moments especially the interplay of the two fools  or clowns who served as the  conscience of the group and  questioned everything, even  questioning whether they were  awake and whether any of us  were there. A fine touch of  magic and immensely thought-  provoking. Also of note was  the performance of John Boat  (Geek #1) who played the blustering, stammering, would-be-  heavy country boy to a "T".  The costumes, sets and lights  were understandably limited due  to the requirements peculiar to  a road company and within those  confines were handled aptly.  I left the theatre with a feeling  of having been well entertained,  a feeling which was reinforced  by the spirited conversations that  erupted in the car on the way  homeward. Manfrog Theatre  put on a show AND made us  think. What else can I say but  give us more, more!  at the Twilight Theatre  The latest offering by Woody  Allen is on view this week at the  Twilight Theatre. The film,  Annie Hall, will be shown locally  from Wednesday through Saturday, October 26th - 29th. There  seems to be little question that  this latest Allen offering will  join the list of his other successes.  The new film which Allen directed himself and which he wrote  in conjunction with Marshall  Brickman is more subdued and  revealing than anything he has  attempted to date.  The episode tale is fragmented  into various scenes of past and  present, some being very funny  and others, while not especially  hilarious, emerge as satirical and  potent comments on relationships  in today's society. The production is also a love poem to Woody  Allen's favourite co-star and  former leading lady in real life,  Diane Keaton. The script allows  her to be endearing, irritating,  awkward,    sophisticated,    char  ming funny, and beautiful at  different times and she handles  two old favourites "It Had To Be  You" and "Seems Like Old  Times" well. Use of the latter  as the theme song and the bittersweet ending make this the most  sentimental of Allen's films.    ���  Annie Hall should please those  who are not Allen enthusiasts  in addition to his fans because  of its romantic theme. A number  of names have cameo roles including composer-singer Paul  Simon and Colleen Dewhurst.  The second of the week's films  presents Clint Eastwood in  another of his grim-jawed portrayals of Western tough guys  and Eastwood fans will need no  further elucidation. The Outlaw  Josey Wales carries the predictable warning from the censor  of occasional violence and will  be shown locally Sunday through  Tuesday, October 30th to November 1st.  One-man show captivating  What a fine performer Brian  Barnes is! And what a pity that  so few of our Sunshine Coast  residents took advantage of his  recent visit.  Those people who did catch  Barnes' performances in Sechelt  and Gibsons saw a thoroughly  professional entertainer of some  considerable virtuosity and were  delighted with his work. Wednesday night, October 19th, at  Chatelech School in Sechelt,  Barnes delighted the forty or so  people . who turned out with  Dylan Thomas' moving and funny  taje, of,, a; VVeJsh., village , Under  Milk Wood and an equal number  enjoyed his hilarious presentation  of the Pickwickians at Manor  Farm on Thursday. October 20th  in Gibsons. In addition Barnes  presented a considerable exerpt  from one of his other shows.  The Provocative Oscar Wilde,  in afternoon shows for the students of both Chatelech and  Elphinstone.  Barnes' theatrical background  consists of repertory work in  England, Switzerland. Germany,  and France. In Switzerland he  worked at the Geotheanum, he  worked at the Brecht Theatre in  Germany, and in France he  worked under Michel St. Denis.  He began his work as a solo  performer in Germany in 1958,  "basically to keep myself alive."  while working at the Brecht  Theatre. His first offering was  "The Boy with the Cart" by  Christopher Fry. His success  in the medium of one man performances led him touring the  continent in 1959-60 with a  T.S. Eliot presentation including  a condensed version of Murder  in the Cathedral and Old Possum's Cats.    The next addition  CLINT EASTWOOD  THE  UTLAW JOSEY WALES  Sun., Mon., Tues.

Dir.  to his repertoire was a cut version  of Under Milk Wood which he  incorporated in 1960, then re-  learned the whole show in 1964.  In 1966 he began, his full-time  career as a touring one-man  theatre and earned the soubriquet  of "jet-setting minstrel".  Barnes' visit to the Sunshine  Coast comes at the end of his  seventh world tour.   His touring  ' repertoire of one-man shows now  "consists of, in addition to the  three shows seen locally. The  Incredible Samuel Pepys, Christmas Carol, a show he calls  Chestnuts for you which includes  The Mad Hatter's Tea Party  from Alice in Wonderland, the  Pyramus and Thisbe section of a  Midsummer Night's Dream, and  Robert Browning's Pied Piper  of Hamelin. The seventh show  that he gives is a pair of scripted  one-man plays by James Saunders entitled The Pedagogue and  Triangle.  This present tour began in  Yugoslavia, thence to Turkey,  Cyprus. Bagdhad, Kuwait,  Sheraz in Iran. .Kabul. Katmandu, a month in India and then  over to Malaysia, Bruneii, Port  Mosby. Madang.the Fiji Islands.  Mexico. Freeport in the Bahamas  then up to Newfoundland and  across to B.C. Ahead of him  after the Sunshine Coast lies  performances in Castlegar and  Kimberley before he returns to  England at the end of his six  and a half month tour.  When asked if a protracted  rest lay ahead of him at the end  of the tour. Barnes replied that  he would have approximately a  fortnight before setting off on a  tour of French Universiites with  A Christmas Carol. He estimates  that he totals about two months of  every year in his little house  fifty miles south of London.  Those fortunate few who caught  . his performance will be sure to  be back for the next visit of  this "jet-setting minstrel" to the  Sunshine Coast.  3f_^jf^^^.^.jf^****����**-***��**��**��*����******  EUingham's  ^   Astro  \*+**++*W**************************  by Rae EUingham  Week commencing October 26th.

When the defense holds one  ace, it is often necessary to know  which aec.it is before a small  slam can be bid with any degree  of certainty. The problem with  the Blackwood convention is  that it does not provide this information.

V.Danna T. Time  here seems to come in waves,  like the ocean, and it's been sort  of difficult to keep track of the  days. You know it's Sunday when  you come into the harbour and  the pub is closed. Other than  that, it's anybody's guess.  We've made one trip so far,  fishing mostly about 20 miles  out and anchoring up out on the  La Perouse Bank. We delivered  nine fish to the buyers the other,  day - 27 lbs. of small spring  salmon, 27 lbs. of mediums,  and one unfortunate ling cod,  who weighed in at 7 lbs. Prices  are up now at the end of the  ' season, but there aren't a lot of  fish around. Ten "keepers" for  a full day's fishing isn't a bad  average. If we could get those  ten every day, we'd be pretty  pleased, but the weather hasn't  been very accommodating.  First thing we do when we  wake up in the morning is turn on  the VHF radio and listen to the  weather. We've heard it so often  that most of the fishermen know  the "notices to shipping" by  heart. The reports lately haven't  been very good. One day it  blows southeast - twenty to  thirty knots. Then the next day  it doesn't blow, but the ocean  still has such a lump on it that  there's no sense even trying to  go out. The day after that the  wind shifts around and blows  westerly, so there's no fishing  that day either.  A bad weather report means  we have a "harbour day", which  consists of keeping the boat tied  to the wharf in Ucluelet. There  isn't a whole lot to do in the  Ucluelet metropolitan area. The  bookstores (or rather the shelves  of books in the small grocery  stores) rival even those of Tofino  for general insipidity. There's  always the pub, and there's been  some enjoyment afforded watching the 'Dodgers beat the  Yankees in the 'world series,  and there's a pool hall, scene of  some 'recent heavy snooker  rivalry, but other than that,  several harbour days in Ucluelet  are enough to make anyone  start wondering about their  mental health. Too long tied up  to the wharf and you could swear  that dead salmon back in the  checkers was winking at you.  That wouldn't be so bad, but  then the seagulls start giving  you fishing tips, you know you're  in trouble.  It's a tough show out here at  the end of the season anyway.  All the fishermen out here are  the confirmed diehards - out to  catch just a few more fish before  it's too late. They troll around in  between storms, and listen to the  ominous      weather      forecasts.  Dragging the gear back and forth,  pulling up the lines to clear off  the shakers (the immature  salmon too small to keep), and  catching, if they're lucky, a few  good fish, is pretty frustrating  business. Sooner or later the  San Juan Suction gets them, and  to hell with it, they say, and head  off towards the Juan de Fuca  Strait, another season done with  for the year.  If the harbour days are boring,  and the fishing is nothing more  than scratchy, it's still something  else being 20 miles out in the  Pacific Ocean. There are only a  few fishing boats out here now.  Occasionally a huge freighter  will chug by. It's exciting to  see them in the daytime, but  at night, anchored up on the  bank, it's eerie to think of them  coming by too closely. Been a lot  of stories of boats cut in half by  these big monsters. . The radar  on board the freighter isn't  working, or it's foggy, and the  first thing some poor fisherman  knows, all he can hear is the  ka-chung, ka-chung of a very  large propellor, and Joy then  it's too late. Crunch.  In fact, fishing out on the  largest ocean in the world, on  board a 40 foot boat, can be a  pretty scary operation. The other  day they towed a derelict fishing  vessel into Tofino. She was  upside down in the water, still  barely floating when they found  her four miles out to sea. The  tide sets to the west this time of  year, so without an engine, the  next stop is Japan. They never  found the crew of the derelict  vessel, although a search was  conducted through the Rescue  Centre in Victoria. When they  flopped the boat right side up  in the harbour, the lifeboat on  board was still lashed to the  boom. They say you can survive  in the water out here for 2Vi  hours. The crew have been  missing for five days now.  I guess you;-don't try"to think  about that sort of thing if you're  a West Coast trailer. Instead,  you wait for the weather and go  out and drop the gear in the  water, "that's what we've done  today, and as I sit in the wheel-  house of the Donna T, writing  this-while we're running south'  towards Cape Beale, it's hard to  think that the ocean could turn  dangerous. The sun is . out,  there's hardly any swell at all,  and the mountains on Vancouver  Island, off our port side, seem  to rise out of the sea like a green  and undiscovered paradise. The  waves roll in from out at sea,  raising and lowering our boat,  falling by as if they were keeping  time. It doesn't matter what day  it is when the ocean winds the  clock. When her alarm goes off,  though, you better wake up.

Salmon  smoking  by Manuane Laplante  It's salmon smoking season at  the Sechelt Indian Reserve. The  fish are caught by the band for  the people, each family orders  as many fish as they think will  be needed for the winter.  It, takes up to four days to  smoke the fish. A fire has to be  kept on in the smokehouse at  all times during this period.  Alder is used for this purpose.  Great care is taken that the fire  doesn't get too hot since the  flesh ofthe fish may fall apart.  Once the fish is cleaned and  opened flat, the thickest part of  the flesh is cut and smoked  separately from the rest of the  fish. These parts are hung  -y# directly from the rafters and are  called "neckties" due to their  shape. The fish itself is held  open by cedar sticks pushed  through the flesh and then hung  in the smokehouse.  In the olden days it took more  than a week to smoke the fish  % but with the coming of freezers,  * there is no need to smoke and  dry the fish as thoroughly as  "**" before to keep it from spoiling.  When the fish is smoked, it is  cut into smaller pieces and  stored away.  Mrs. Christine Johnston  nominated for medal  Mrs. Christine Johnston" of  Mermaid Street in Sechelt is  the nominee of the Sechelt council  as a recipient of Silver Jubilee  Commemorative Medal to be  distributed to distinguished  Canadians to mark the twenty-  fifth year of the reign of the  current monarch. The medals  are understood to be given for  service to the community.  Mrs. Johnston was the first  chairman of the Sechelt council,  topping the polls for the first  council in 1956 and served as  chairman for ten years. Mrs.  Johnston and her late husband  Captain Johnston came to the  Sunshine Coast in 1944 and lived  for some years in Wilson Creek  before moving to Sechelt in 1951.  They both served their communities in Wilson Creek and  Sechelt for many years. Captain Johnston, who had been an  Intelligence Officer during the  Second World War and adjutant  of his regiment, served as magistrate in Sechelt for fifteen years  before being transferred to take  charge of the first night court  in Vancouver in about 1964.  By coincidence Captain Johnston was awarded the Queen's  Medal for Community Service  on the occasion of her coronation in 1952.  Mrs.   Johnston   was   born   in.  Alexandria   in   Glengarry   to   a  United Empire Loyalist family of  mixed Irish and  Scotch decent.  She grew up in Ottawa and as  she says, "...was close to politics  all  my life."     She remembers  vividly walks she took in the park  with Sir Wilfred Laurier who was  a near neighbour.     When  the  Coast News reporter asked her  if he had been a friend of the'  family she replied, "No, he was  my   friend."      Apparently   the  little girl and the elderly statesman met for walks in the neighbourhood park and she remembers that he always had pepper-'  mints   in   his   pocket   for   her.  Another vivid memory from that;  period is  Sir Wilfred's'funeral5  with a great amassing of horse-  drawn wagons collected to pay  tribute to one of Canada's great  Prime Ministers.  It was fifty years ago that Mrs.  Johnston moved to British Columbia and she remembers Vancouver as being just a small town at  that time. A widow for ten years  now, Mrs. Johnston recalls the  members of that first Sechelt  council as being Capt.' Sam Dawe,  Alec Lamb, Frank Parker, and  Bernel Gordon. "The men on  council were very easy to work  with and we all got along well  and worked as a team, remembers Mrs. Johnston.

R. Peterson  Herbert Berdahl of Gibsons  has graduated from the Royal  Canadian Mounted Police Depot  Division, Regina.  Herbie, as he has been known  here since his childhood, is of  third generation Sunshine Coast  descent on both sides.  His father, Herbert, is son of  the late Peter and Hilda Berdahl.  Peter arrived here from his native  Norway in 1908 to work at logging. He married Hilda Irgens,  whose family came here, also  from Norway, soon after his  arrival. Their home stood, north  of Highway 101 near its junction  with the Lower Road.  His mother, Betty, is daughter  of the late Charles and Mary  Oldershaw, who . settled and  raised their family in wilderness  at Roberts Creek. Their final  and main home was built at the  head of the road that bears their  name.  Herbie's lifetime ambition was  to become a member of the  RCMP. Throughout his early  boyhood, he worried that he  would not be able to qualify for  the requirements of this force.  He graduated from Elphinstone  Secondary School, where his  unique sense of humor made him  popular, with both students and  staff. He did qualify as a candidate for the Royal Canadian  Mounted Police. And he did  graduate from training camp. He  is posted to a detachment at  Wetaskiwin, Alberta, where he  will be known as Constable  Herbert Berdahl - or perhaps  as Herbie.

SECHELT GIBSONS, B.C.  885-9554 886-2200  Question: Would you tell me how  whole wheat flour, enriched white  flour and unbleached white flour  differ in nutrient content?  Answer: Whole wheat flour contains the three principal parts of  the wheat kernel: the germ, the  endosperm and the bran. Therefore whole wheat flour contains  a wider array of nutrients including trace minerals, vitamin  E and lesser known B vitamins  as well as thiamine, ribflavin,  niacin and iron.- Since bran is  largely ingestible, whole wheat  flour also provides a good deal  of roughage. Enriched flour is  milled from wheat that is essentially free of germ and bran and  contains added thiamine, niacin,  riboflavin and iron in amounts  within limits set by the federal  government. Unbleached white  flour is also milled from wheat  which is essentially free of germ  and bran. If enriched, it has a  similar nutrient content to that  of white enriched flour except for  vitamin E. Vitamin E is destroyed in the bleaching process - so  therefore unbleached white flour  will contain vitamin E. However  if the unbleached white flour is  not enriched it will have a much  lower nutrient content than white  enriched flour.

Overcooked  meat has greater loss of vitamins.  The degree of doneness does not  affect the protein or iron content.  Question: What is. carob powder  and can it be used as a replacement for chocolate?  Answer: The pods of the carob  tree found in Mediterannean  countries are ground to produce,  carob powder which has a flavour  similar to that of chocolate.  Carob powder is high in carbohydrate, very low in fat, and a  relatively good source of protein.  Many people who are not able  to use chocolate (often because  of allergies) find that carob  powder is an acceptable substitute. You can use it in baking  but use less sugar when substituting carob powder for chocolate.

Born and raised in a background of coal-mining and farming, with outside privies; water  carried from a tap down the  street in pails; candle-light and  oil-lamp light both inside and outside all houses; we lived primitively in that era of 1904-18.  Minus radio; TV, telephone, cars  or buses; mostly without even  the original Edison-gramophone,  or comic books; we just had to  fill in those long hours of the  long years with "something".  My something at nights was  reading.  From A.B.C. coloured books,  to the Bible, to Shakespeare and  Jack London. Old volumes with  Gothic characters such as you  may see in Germany today,  poetry, mother's own magazines,  newspapers, everything. And  I read too many times by the dim  and fluttery glow of a candle.  It became a passion.

Well, folks, the picture turned out-see Corrance's  column below.   These dog salmon are spawning  Wildlife corner  by Ian Corrance  \ The big natural event for this  j      time of year has to.be the salmon  spawning.       Herb    Craig,    the  fisheries officer for the lower end  of the Sunshine Coast turned me  j      on to the  creek just  past  the  \      Porpoise Bay Campsite.   He had  counted about 500 fish going up  and    recommended    that    if   I  \     wanted some pictures I  should  head down there.  | When he had been up a few  ; days earlier doing a count, he  was criticized by two lollypop-  suckiiig    youngsters. "Hey  mister!" one of them shouted,  "Do you realize you're killing  fish by walking on their eggs!"  Herb assured them that he was  walking on the larger rocks and  missing the eggs but it was uplifting for him to see that the kids  were concerned about the safety  of the eggs instead of chasing  the fish through the shallow  water.  A couple of weeks ago I said  that I would be taking some  pictures of them, well I gave it  a try but haven't printed them  yet, so if this piece is accompanied by a picture my experiment turned out, if there's no  picutre then I guess it must have  been a faulty roll of film. 1 tried  to shoot in amongst the trees,  so when I put on a polarizing  filter my light meter was reading  around l/8th of a second.

Griffiths, David Reed, Maurice  Green and Peter Benjafield  along with Ray Kraft from the  fisheries.  Where they were working was  the small creek that runs between  Mixal (Bear) Lake and Sakinaw.  Years ago this stream had a good  run of coho, the biggest in 1959.  It has a potential for about 500  spawners. Over the years the  gravel had been washed out.  Franky Lee managed to get a  $1000 grant under the salmon  enhancement programme. He  spent it on gravel and last year  whe'elbarrowed part of it into the  creek bed.

So far I've had no  reports of hummingbirds hitching  rides on them. Maybe they're  too high to spot.  Coming back from Vancouver  on the ferry last week I noticed  about fifteen Western Grebes  just outside the Horseshoe Bay  terminal. If I remember rightly  this is about the time of year for  a large flock of several hundred  to gather about half a mile off  shore at Hopkins.

Pender Seniors  Branch 80 News  Many old, forgotten bits of  English history were recalled to  mind at the October meeting of  Pender Harbour Senior Citizens'  Association when Joan and Don  Riome told the story of their  recent trip to the United Kingdom and illustrated it with their  colour slides.  It had been a journey in search  of roots for Joan and Don: he to  seek out his birthplace in Grave-  send (also the site of an ancient  pub called the Leather Bottle);  and she to revisit the Yorkshire  town of Glaisdale where her  grandfather had been a rector  of the same church for 28 years.  Yes, there was the picture of  Joan's grandsire on the wall of  the church, and they made a picture ofthe picture.  Others in the audience who  had also, on holiday, followed  the well-worn, wonderful paths  of England, took pleasure in  recognizing many familiar scenes  such as the ornate chimneys of  Hampton Court (domicile of the  unfortunate Queen, Catherine  Howard, before the time of her  assignation with the headsman);  and the spires of Canterbury  (where a group of enterprising  elderly people made a priceless  discovery of ancient Roman  buildings buried underneath a  parking lot):  At the close of the programme,  Mr. and Mrs. Riome were  warmly applauded for the generous offering of their time and  experiences.

Everybody had a great  time and special thanks go out to  the Horizon Band and all the  club's ladies auxiliary. A $50  door prize went out to Jock  Bennett and company and Neil  Davidson won the $25 ticket  raffle.  Many of the Elphinstone  Wanderers did not get to bed  until the wee hours after the  dance but all were up for Sunday's game against Vancouver  Metros. It was an excellent  game for 75 minutes as the home  team led 2-zip. For the last 15  minutes, the Wanderers looked  like they were celebrating the  party again as they watched the  Metros pop in two late goals.  It was a sad conclusion to a good  weekend as the Wanderers took  a tie in what was an easy 2  pointer.  Although the Wanderers  dominated the game it took only  two goals on five shots for the  Metros to tie the game.  Coach Terry Duffy said,  "Mental errors in the last twenty  minutes caused the tie." He  named Nick Berganach as the  game's star. Goal scorers were  Nick Bergnach and Graham  Chapman who scored a picture  goal on a header pass from captain Gary Davies. Duncan  Campbell thought the Wanderers  played one of the best games of  the year despite the 2-2 tie.

For the first game this  season the Raiders looked like  an organized unit but still lacked  the finesse to carry the game.

On the rocks  by Pat Edwards  Everything is running so  smoothly that there is very little  to report this week.  Several skips are lining up  teams for bonspiels in Squamish  next month, and it is hoped we  will make a good showing.  Bernie Parker will be covering  the senior curling each week,  and his first interesting report  follows.  Last year we mentioned that  we hoped to fill our arena with  senior curlers and by golly, we  haye done just that!  Each Friday afternoon at 1:30 '  we have eight rinks curling  at  Gibsons and the same at   1:30  on Tuesdays at Sechelt and we  are all having lots of fun.  Anyone interested in curling in  a men's senior league please  call Bernie Parker at Gibsons,  886-9664 or Bob Foxall at Sechelt,  885-2650.  We will also welcome anyone  for fill-ins and spares. Good  curling!  Both Gibsons Rugby Club  teams won against their Vancouver Rugby Union opponents  this weekend. Gibsons IV's  took a close, chippy match from  Fijians IV's by a score of 4-0 and  Gibsons Ill's totally dominated  Vancouver Trojans 18-0. Both  games were played before about  100 supporters, on Saturday at  the Elphinstone field.  The first game, played at 12:00,  was marred by some blatantly  dirty play by a sloppy, but  aggresive Fijian side. The  Fijian style of play was a number  of high tackles, punches and  maliciously thrown elbows in an  attempt to physically dominate  the locals. Gibsons remained  generally cool to the incidents  and managed to dominate the  set scrums to get most of the  ball. At the fifteenth minute,  the strong Gibsons scrum pushed  the opponents into their end zone  from a set and George Matthews  dropped on a loose ball for the  game's only scoring.  With ten minutes left in the  game, team captain Gary Gray  pulled his team off the field in  protest over the continued dirty  play, and the referee called the  game. After the game, the Vancouver Rugby Union referee said  he called the game because of  play which did not represent the  best kind of rugby football.  In the second game, Gibsons  Ill's came out running in the first  half and ran up the points early.  A much more entertaining game  than the earlier match, saw some  excellent rucking and running.  Ian Yates, Jay Pomfrett and  Frank Havies were responsible  for the Gibsons points.  Both Gibsons teams play in  Vancouver this weekend, with'the  Ill's taking on their arch-rivals  Scribes and the IV's facing the  Rowing Club at Brockton Oval.  Volleyball  The Junior Volleyball Tournament held at Elphinstone "this  past week came to one of the  most exciting finishes ever seen  in local tournament play. The  finalists werre Campbell River  and Hillside and Campbell River  won a long drawn out final match  by three games to one. Hillside,  however, had beaten the Campbell River team earlier in the  day and there was not enough  .time for the jubber match to be  played.  In an effort to break the deadlock the coaches agreed to count.  the total points that the teams  had scored against each other in  their two matches. Here again  the result was stalemate, however, since it was discovered that  the total points were exactly  even. Finally it was decided  that the teams should be declared  tied and the trophy shared.  Elphinstone Grade Eight team  covered themselves in some  considerable glory during the  tournament. Not only did they  knock off the West Vancouver  team which was last, year's  champions in the quarter finals,  but they went on to beat the  Elpinstone Grade Nine and Ten  team to finish up in third place  behind the two leaders. Other  teams were from Squamish and  Pemberton.  J  h  BEAVERS REGISTRATION  at Sunnycrest Mall  Saturday, October 29th  1 p.m. - 3 p.m.  For further information  Phone 886-7122  The Peninsula Gales continued  their winning ways this past  weekend in Tacoma, Washington.  The local team travelled down  to Tacoma to play the Seattle  Vikings, a team they will host at  the Sechelt arena in back to back  games next weekend.  Saturday night at Sprinker  Arena in Tacoma the Gales got  off to a fast start and defeated  the Vikings by a score of 7-0.  Fourteen seconds into the first  period Butch Rogers knocked the  puck into the net in the midst of  a goal-mouth scramble. Doug  Kennedy got the second goal on  a picture set-up from Jim Gray at  6.09 of the opening period. Top-  scorer Dave Lamb got his eighth  of the young season when he  connected on a pass from Kelly  Bodnarek at 9.15. This too was a  beautiful goal with Lamb head-  faking the Viking goalie to the  ice before lifting the puck over  him into the top of the net. The  first period closed with the Gales  leading 3-0.  They struck quickly again in  the second period with Mike  Sutherland scoring twice within  the first four minutes of the  period. The first came at 1.40  of the period when Sutherland  took a pass back from Jim Gray  and slapped the puck into the net  from his point position.   At 3.25  Sutherland did it again, this time  jamming his own rebound into  the net under the fallen Viking  goalie, after a thrilling solo effort.  Randy Legge made it 6-0 at 7.15  of the period when he whipped a  wrist shot into the net from the  point. The final goal was scored  at 11.10 of the second period  when Rick Ion put the puck in the  net after some tenacious fore-  checking by his entire line.  The Gales let up a bit in the  third period, perhaps understandably, but it led to some  sloppy hockey which had the  three coaches, Bill Rayment,  Jerry Dixon and Larry Reardon,  breathing fire.  Viking coach, Scott Bledsoe,  was playing with a short roster  as quite a few of his players were  recovering from the flu and he  wanted to rest them for the visit  to the Sunshine Coast next week.  The Viking coach remained  confident that with a full squad  the Vikings can win both games  at the Sechelt Arena next weekend and so take the three-game  series.  Despite the score, reports from  the game indicate that the  Vikings have very strong goal-  tending and may give, the locals  a rough time in the arena next  Saturday and Sunday.  Strikes  ares  Five us went to Park Lanes in  Chiliiwack last Sunday to take  in their 15 game marathon. We  won't dwell on our scores too  much as it suffices to say that  the coffee was hot and the beer  was cold and that's the way we  bowled. Actually we were quite  happy to get there as we drove  (Ken Skytte was driving) right  past Chiliiwack and almost wound  up in Hope. All in all though it  was a nice day.  Last Wednesday we played  host to 47 Golden Agers from  the Salmon Arm area who are on  a seven-day tour of Vancouver,  our area and Vancouver Island.  They bowl in the different bowling centres on the way and have  a very good time. Our Swingers  bowled with them and this gives  them a chance to bowl against  different competition.

These are the Gales  by Ed Lands  RICKHACKINEN  Rick Hackinen is as close to  a homegrown hockey player as  one is likely to find on the Sunshine Coast. The twenty-three  year old left-shooting right  winger hails from the Vancouver  suburb of Burnaby where Rick  attended Burnaby South Secondary School. Ten years or so ago,  as a Pee Wee, Hackinen led his  team to an overall 2nd place  finish in the Northwest Division.  He continued in organzied hockey  until the age of sixteen, having  played in the Kilarney House  League as well as attending the  U.B.C. Hockey School. During  the following five year period Rick  skated with friends in leisurely  games, but the call of active competition lured him back to playing  in a men's senior commercial  league at Columbian Four Rinks  in Burnaby.' .  ^     ;..._  It was during the initial year of  operation of the Sunshine Coast  arena that Hackinen moved to  the area to work at the pulp mill  of Port Mellon fame. He played  for the Gibsons Legion team for  two years whose demise forced  him to the Roberts Creek Club  last year. During the past two  . years of play he had been attending U.B.C. and commuting to  his games and practices on the  coast.  "People seem to care for the  effort I put out.'"says Rick, who  now resides on his sailboat at  the Gibsons wharf. "There is a  sense of involvement which is  unique to a rural setting and  not present in larger communities. Two years ago, while  playing for Gibsons, I received a  bad cut above my eye. I had to  have ice packs on it whenever I  was off the ice. Ordinarily I  would not have gone back out to  play."  Rick went on to talk about  hockey in general: "As a kid I  was more attracted to Canadian  amateur teams like Fran Huck  played on. I'm happy to see this  organization (the Gales) stressing  hockey for serious fun. It's  amateur, but everyone puts out  100%." Rick continues, "It  gives both young' and old the  opportunity to play with a positive inspiration in mind, and a  local one at that. I can recall the  pyramid system of hockey I was  ruled by as a kid. The ones who  survived it to the pinnacle played  pro and everyone else had to  give it all up."  At 5' 10" tall and 165 pounds,  the fair-haired Rick isn't the  biggest man on the ice, although  he managed two goals and an  assist last weekend.  "He looks like Barbara Anne  (Scott), at full'tilt;" quipped defensive coach Larry Reardon.  Reardon didn't stop there, "He's  a fast skater with a wide open  stance. He can turn on a dime."  When asked if he styled his  play after anyone in particular,  Hackinen shook his head and  said, "I guess passing and play-  making are my strong points."  In addition to his activities on  the ice Rick enjoys fishing and  sailing. I understand he's a  great guy for playing piano at]  parties. He also plays the trumpet.  "I get the feeling that everybody knows everybody up here."  Surely everybody will become  more familiar with No. II, Rick  Hackinen.  Senior Girls  win tourney  Elpinstone Senior Girl's Volleyball team prepared for the first  ever provincial finals to be played  on the Sunshine Coast, scheduled  for the next month, when they  won the recent tournament at  U.B.C. The local girls were  against thirty-five teams and  though they dropped an early  game in the Pool Section of the  tournament to Eric Hamber when  they played a rare bad game,  they gained entry into the Championship Round as one of the  three wild card entries.  Once in the final round there  was no stopping the local girls.  In truly exciting volleyball matches they defeated Handsworth  15-8. 11-15. and 15-13. In another  exciting match they defeated a  first-class team from South Burnaby by scores of 15-9, 9-15,  and 16-14. They then sowed up  the championship by beating  Burnaby Centre in straight games  15-11 and 15-5.

The Sunshine Wrist-wrestling  Association representatives and  referee returned October 10th  from Petaluma, California,  after attending the World Wristwrestling Championships. Referee Paul Peter Klachan of Ma-  ? deria Park was given the; privilege of being one of the eight  world referees. He stood in the  line-up with four Hall of Fame  members, who had been four  times world champions, two  world champions and one national  champion.  Klachan said. "There were two  thousand people in the building  and with every match the concrete structure literally shook  with the noise and excitement.  Each match was the most important event to each competitor.  Almost six hundred athletes  from across the United States,  from Australia, and from Mexico,  including of course our two  lightweights from Powell River  and Gibsons came to win."

The  Renegades padded their lead  with two goals by Howie- Joe  and one by Ricky August in the  second half.  The Celtic goalkeeper got a  yellow card for unsportsmanlike  play in the second half and was  so incensed that he succeeded  in saving the resultant penalty  kick.  pride.

In a small village in Honduras,  young Augustina Romas gets up  before dawn and sets off on her  first task of the day - collecting  water for her family. Seven  times during the day Augustina  must repeat her arduous task,  over a mountainous path, through  dense tropical growth, to the  nearest river. The jug she  carries is heavy, but she is determined that her family get  enough water for their needs.  As she walks, Augustina worries. Her younger sister and her  baby brother died last year,  and she has learned that. the  water she fetches so laboriously  may actually be killing the family  she is trying to help. Each year  over 5,000,000 babies die from  water-related diseases before  their first birthday.  The burden of being the family's water carrier also deprives  innumerable children of their  education. Very often they are  taken out of school because their  families need them to carry  water.    In some areas, schools  "Hospital accredited  Continued from Page One  ..meets the.required accreditation  ���"'standards; and there is the three-  % year which means that the hos-  "������pital in question has met and  -^surpassed the necessary accreditation standards.

Because of the plight of these  children, the UNICEF Hallowe'en  campaign this year will focus on  clean water, the single most important element that affects the  health of all children. Disease  has fallen sharply in areas where  safe water has been provided.  In Bangladesh a well was sunk  near a house where 25 orphans  were living. For the first time  in their lives, these children got  pure water to drink. It worked  wonders! The woman in charge  commented, "When they came  here, almost all of these children  were sick with dysentry! Some of  them died. But there has been  no sickness for some time now.  I think, it is the new well.''  This Hallowe'en, when Canadian children "trick or treat"  they will be thinking of these  other little ones, for whom a  drink of clean water is almost a  luxury. They know that even  small change, through UNICEF,  can change small lives and they  are counting on us to help them  in their crusade.

In recent years we have had so much  of this that many of us now  suffer from.what has been called  "compassion fatigue". Our  hearts are touched and our minds  prodded so frequently that they  become wearied preventing continued attention, to the suffering  of others.  Some of us go ,in for the detached academic' or study-group  kind of interest in the plight of  others. This sometimes leads to  constructive action - but generally  it is a subtle exercise in evasion.  We use pious chatter and the  drafting of impressive resolutions  as an excuse for not rolling up  our sleeves and .trying to do  helpful things - even such a helpful thing as reaching for a cheque-  ����***���������,-���,'*.���; ..���';;���'���-. ���������:��"��� "..:.,.:,  Compassion fatigue can encourage us to cultivate convenient  ignorance: if we do not let .  ourselves know too much about  the suffering of others we will  not feel called upon, to do anything about it.  Many comfortable Canadians  do cultivate a convenient ignorance - ignorance1;, of the malnutrition from" which the majority  of the world's; people suffer,  ignorance of .the , injustices inflicted on so many, people everywhere, and of the .deprivation in  our own nation. > Even in our own  neighbourhoods.  The complexity and confusion  of life today, with the compassion  fatigue it engenders and the convenient ignorance it encourages,  causes indifference to settle  rather easily on our hearts.  Perhaps indifference is the great  sin of our time.  by Fran Berger  Hey fellas! Come and get it!  Come on now, admit it. You  could do a little, right? It's been  on your mind for a while, I bet.  You've been thinking that you  really could do with a little  EXERCISE!  Did you make it to see "Rocky"  yet? Even if you're neither a  movie buff nor a boxing enthusiast, treat yourself to its delights  anyway. Rocky reaches a lot  more of life's little lessons than  just how to be a fighter. And if  inspiration to work out in some  way is what you want, Rocky will  do it for you for sure. His incredible marathon run builds up  to such an explosion of exhilaration at having made it, that never  have I seen portrayed so vividly  or passionately such sheer joy  in being physical, such exhube-  rance in accomplishing a feat of  physical endurance! I hate to  gush, but it is positively uplifting.  Now I'm not particulary pushing body-building, or boxing for'  that matter - unless you happen  to like getting beaten up, of  curse. Just getting into shape.  And that takes ACTION.  How about starting out easy by  getting together with other guys  of similar persuasion for an  evening of varied workouts?  Try an hour of karate-style  exercises followed by a quick  game of basketball. Or what  about developing the finesse of  fencing, or trying some tricks on  the trampoline? Tumbling or  gymnastics anyone? There's  also volleyball, badminton, and  floor hockey, don't forget - plus  any other activity you might like  to try. The facilities are available, and several guys have  already expressed an interest,  so if you'd like to get in on  these "For Men Only" sessions,  please call the Fitness Service  at 885-3611. You know it will do  you nothing but good. This is  your chance. Like Janis said,  ' 'Get it while you can!''  The Chatelech gymnasium  could be available Monday nights  from 8:00-10:00 p.m.  Come cry with me  These students of Chatelech Junior Secondary School are shown on a noon-hour clean-up  campaign of the trail near the school. The students were responding to criticism in the  local papers about the litter in the area. The students pointed out to the Coast News photographer that some of it was possibly older than they were.  up. What can I do?  Dear Ann:  I have this problem - when we  were first married my husband  wanted no secrets between us.  He persuaded me to tell him all  about my previous love life, as  he was telling me his experiences. I didn't hesitate to tell him  about my love affairs. Well!  He throws it up to me every time  he gets angry and he's frustrated  when I don't do what he expects',  he also questions me when I've,  been away on a shopping trip  or visit. ;  v.  Regretful  Dear Regretful:  I'm sure many, many make  this mistake. The past is none of ���  his or her business. It's gonei  forever. We can't get a second���<  back. In time, by your conduct;  and loving patience he'll realize;:  his error. Tell him it only reminds  you of old loves, long forgotten,  and that might stop him. Anyone  thinking of true confessions,  =don't! Let this be a lesson to  all, what one doesn't know  doesn't hurt one. Our past belongs to us alone and to share  it is to risk planting images in  the other's mind, that makes  them uneasy. Some people are  paranoid to the point.of mental  illness anyway, so don't take a  chance, politely refuse to discuss  . past intimacies. The present is  the only reality.  i  Dear Ann:  When my old man comes home  at night he's so quiet, he cleans  up, has dinner and watches TV.  He doesn't even look at me let  alone come onto me. 1 feel  ���lonely all day and look forward  to seeing him  and being loved  Waiting  Dear Waiting:  Think about it, have you ever  been that tired? Spend a day  without a stop except for lunch  and coffee break, don't sit down,  use a shovel and a hoe in the  garden, lift and carry things  around. I'll bet at the end of  the day you're too tired to talk.  The thing to do is take a long  bath, take a nap after dinner,  you'll find then you have renewed eneregy. So try with yourself and find what revives you,  then try it on him.    When he's  rested, put on some perfume,  have a cup of something he  likes together and take it from  there. It's like whipping a tired  horse to try to talk of seducing  him when he's so tired. Remember he's showing his love by  battling away the hours in a  boring, tiring job to provide for  you. .

Ouellette and  Gosden Creeks will be diverted to preserve the  existing marsh and the old channel will be used  as part of the site area for the sawmill.  By-law No. 96.22 would include D.L. 1462,  Blocks 1 to 6 inclusive, Plan 5883; and D.L. 1463,  Lots 1 to 7 inclusive, Plan 5672; and that portion  of the remainder of D.L. 1463 lying to the southeast of Lot 5, Plan 5672 in an Industrial 4 zone.  This would change the zoning from a rural A4  zone. The proposal is to use this area north of  Witherby Point as a dry land sort.  By-law No. 96.27 will amend Land Use Regulation By-law No. 96, 1974 to include a second  category of domestic industry. The current  domestic industry provision has been re-named  home occupation and a new category of home  industry is defined. This category allows an  occupation to be conducted by the resident and  no more than two employees and is confined to  no more than two additional dwellings accessory  to a dwelling unit. There are setback requirements for the buildings of at least 30 metres from  any property line. The new category of home  industry will be allowed in land use zones A1  through A4, 13 and 14. The old category now  re-named home occupation will be a permitted  use in land use zones A1 through A4, C1 through  C4,13and 14, and R1 through R4.  The hearing will be held at the Langdale Ele-J  mentary School in the gymnasium at 7:30 p.m.,  Tuesday, Novembers, 1977.

The Ratepayers* are  proud of having opened the door  for so many concerned residents  and we promise to do everything  we can to see that their wishes  are considered.  The second thing evident is  that while people of the area are  intensely interested in the issues  involved in planning Pender  Harbour's future development,  they experience a great deal of  confusion in dealing with them.  For instance it is not uncommon  for respondents to answer Question 3 of the questionnaire that  they prefer lot sizes of less than  '/2-acre, and then answer Question 9 that they would prefer lot  sizes of 1 acre to a public sewer  system, apparently without being  aware of the contradiction.  Others admit to not seeing the  relevance of questions regarding  sewer systems, water systems  and road systems to the present  development ofthe area.  It occurs to the Ratepayers'  Planning Committee that the  central issues involved in drawing  up the questionnaire should have  been better explained in advance  so that this confusion might have  been avoided. For the benefit  of those still struggling we will  deal with what have proved to  be some of the thornier questions  now.  The planning questionnaire,  like the whole issue of community  planning, breaks down into 3  basic areas: community services,  economic development and land  controls. While all three subjects  can be considered separately to  some extent, all three are also  inextricably linked and must be  considered in connection with  each other.  For instance, if we are to opt  for small lot subdivision of Vi-  acre or less in the Pender Harbour drainage basin, we also  .commit ourselves to eventually  installing a public sewer system.  It has been shown over and over  again, throughout the Lower  Mainland and throughout the  developed world, that if intensive residential development  occurs on lots less than an acre  in size, individual septic tank  systems will prove incapable of  handling sewage and common  sewer systems will have to be  supplied in the name of public  health.  This was evidently not understood by many people, who  either recommended lot sizes of  less than Vz-acre in size together  with no public sewer system, or  vice-versa. If we are going to  continue with subdivision lots  of down to '/4-acre in size in the  Harbour basin, we are going to  end up with terrible pollution  which could only be cured by a  general system of sewers carrying our effluent away to a more  remote place - inevitably Malaspina Strait, which is already  sopping up sewage from Gibsons,  Sechelt and Powell River.  It is evident also that many of  those respondents who have  opted for public sewer systems  in answering the questionnaire  have failed the consider the cost,  because in other questions they  express a desire to maintain a  rural lifestyle and keep taxes low.  To encircle the Harbour with  sewer mains would prove a  Herculean task costing in the  many millions of dollars. In fact  it is a moot point whether or not  such a project would be feasible.  Along the Lloyd Peninsula subdivision in Garden Bay for example, where would a sewage main  be placed? If up on the high  central roadway, waterfront  homes would be faced with the  enormous expense of pumping  their own sewage uphill. If down  on the shoreline where gravity  flow could be employed, the main  would have to be blasted into  solid rock in highly inaccessible  locations, and people would be  required to sacrifice the most  prized parts of their lots for  easements. There has been a  suggestion that the mains could  be laid in deep water with feeder  lines branching off, but the extra  installation and maintenance  problems this would entail boggle  the mind.  entirely - by keeping housing*  density to a low enough level tha^gj  individual septic tanks and drain-**  age fields will remain adequate^*  It is for this reason that theS  questionnaire included the quesAJ  tion, if solving the pollution**  problem proved to be a' choice*!!!  between lots 1 acre in size and a*S  public sewer system, which would*.,  be preferable? Some respondent^  refused to answer the question^  calling it "irrelevant" or "hypo^  thetical". It is neither. We ma^  be called upon to make such at1  decision very soon. ���'.*���*?  The water supply for the area*?  is  linked  to  land   development^  policy in a way very like that oK  sewers. Because of land develops*  ment in the Madeira Park-FranJ^  cis   Peninsula   area,   the   wate����S  system there has already  beeirS;  put under quite  severe  strain^  and    this    is    directly    related*;  to the problems now being enj|  countered   with   water   qualityr*  Simply, the South Pender Water^j  works had to increase its storage^  area to supply the great influx^  of new users coming in, and tho&  only storage area available was|  on shallow boggy land that hasj-  produced   the   sedimented   anc�����  discoloured    water   familiar   to%  users on that side.    Given the5  new   demands  for   supply,   the;*  board made the only move opeif*  to it, but the loss in water quality;*  is unfortunate to say the least��  Unchecked   development   would}*  put all local water systems under*  similar strain in the near future^  and   eventually   necessitate   thejj  creation of a major overall water*  system, perhaps supplied by Lyoi>5'  Lake and perhaps by the regionafj-  district system coming up from*!  Halfmoon Bay. Again, this would*:  involve tremendous expense andX'  great raises in taxes. >!  Do we want this? " We have to*!  Hi  decide now, and the decision*!  comes back to land development -:%.'  if we pack people in on smalj^  lots we're for it, if we keep thenvl  fewer and farther between;^  we can get away with somethings  less. Just to give an idea - th<&  Mission City Zoning By-law**  which the Ratepayers' Planning^  Committee has a copy of, pro^J  vides that lots in .areas not ser_$  viced by sewers or water systemsj  be a minimum 3 acres in size**  and lots in areas serviced bjM  water systems but not sewers*  be a minimum of I acre. This i$��  the standard adopted by most?*  developing municipalities andp;  the Harbour area could hardl\;5  expect to get away with less.        ; JJ  Another question which seems!?  to be stumping people is Ques^  tion 7, regarding controls on*;  what individuals do oh privately  land, as opposed to what cor^M  porations do on large develop tg  ments. This question may have^  been somewhat clumsily worded,*!  but its intent was to test atti��g  tudes on land use - that is, fincre  out whether people want highly2  restrictive zoning like the present^  Rl and RII over the Harbourp  area or whether they want to|g  leave people with more of theSj  freedom they had under the olcEp  RHI zoning. Should a famih&j  be able to run a little antique^  shop on its back yard, or splifig  shakes or set up an appliance re*��  pair depot in a detached out-3��  building? Or should all suchj*!  activities be banished to the ruran|  and industrial zones? SomtfS  people answered no to the ques-jv  tions, noting they didn't want^t  their neighbours erecting high����  rise apartments. That wasn't^  the intent of Question 7, bu��j;  perhaps it wasn't clear enough.    ^  Generally though, the ques-t*!  tionnaires have been very**;  thoughtfully answered and to-JJ��?  gether provide an expression of>%  public opinion no one is going to^  find easy to ignore. *2j  UNICEF       I  The theme of UNICEF Hallowe'en this year is "Clean Watert-��  for all the World's Children"^  Filthy drinking water spreads^  disease and epidemics among^''  our   most   precious   resource   v����  coins'^;  the  little  orange  and  blacker  Going through the Change of Light?

Last week's winner was Mike Maughan of Box 164, Port Mellon,  B-C. who correctly located the Stump House across the road from Dogpatch by Port Mellon.  Forty years of wireless  operation on B.C. Coast  by E. Gordon Kelk  Mr. Kelk has a background  which entitles him to make the  observation that writers and  historians have done a great  disservice to the Wireless Operator by their disinterest in B.C.  coastal wireless history. Mr.  Kelk's father, who died in 1948  it the age of 61, was an ex-  -erienced operator and a veteran  the field, having assisted in  erecting many of the stations  such as Pachena Point and Alert  Bay. E. Gordon Kelk was born  in Alert Bay where his father  was stationed.  Canada and the United States,  joined in the struggle to make  shipping lanes safe on both coasts  and the Great Lakes.  Strange as it may seem, there  was a time lapse of almost twenty  years between Marconi's wireless  trials and it's full use on the B.C.-  coast. Wireless had to prove  itself. Perhaps some of the  blame for the slowness of ship  to shore communication taking  hold, can be laid squarely on the  shoulders of a few master mariners. Traditionally they held the  firm belief that a captain was  solely responsible for the safety  a few hundred feet. Although  rescue attempts were made, the  end result was 117 lives lost.  The dire need for more navigational aids was brought home  hard to the Dominion Government, and the year after the  Valencia tragedy, a lighthouse  was built at Pachena Point, and  along the coast, can-bouys and  channel markers were installed  in strategic spots.  These aids helped considerably  with visual navigation, and still  do. There are many stories of  heroic lighthouse keepers, and  their daring rescues.    However,  ��� Sfl  ltSh.5  The following is the first of  four in a series which was previously printed in Harbour &  Shipping.  Without Marconi, headlines  in the early twenties could not  have read..."Wireless once only  i-ntm, now a reality!"  mu. ���~*at genius's first successful transmission occurred in  England between the East Goodwin lightship and the South  Forlands lighthouse during the  year 1898. With demonstrations  in the U.S.A. the following year,  messages were exchanged between the steamer Ponce and the  Navesink lighthouse N.J.  Marconi's magic spread to the  Pacific coast, where a station was  set   up   aboard   a   li"��i��--'  ~  San   Frar'"'"T!   h^r^our.  was first of a sci..     jf experimental ship to show installations.  Those were troubled times for  all mariners, especially the ones  using the North Pacific Orient  trade routes. Records show that  many vessels loaded with cargo  had made successful ocean  voyages only to lose their bearings in fog and storm, ending  up on a reef, sometimes only a  few miles from their final destinations.  Never at a time in marine  history, was the need so great for  navigational aids. With increasing    international    trade,    both  of his ship. To have young ship's  officers plotting courses by radio  for them was out of the question:  Adding to this, in an era of tight  money, land stations were an  expensive item, and could easily  be shelved until a demand came.  There were more wrecks, more  loss of lives, and so it went on  until ship's casualty lists looked  like something from a world  war. Inquests on some of the  wrecks that involved heavy loss  of life showed that human error  due to faulty navigation was  mainly to blame.  One of the most outstanding  examples, was the disaster of  the steamer Valencia in 1906.  This passenger ship had left San  Francisco bound for Victoria,  January 20th. The weather had  been good as far as Cape Mendi-  cino, from there, she had run into  heavy Pacific fog. Captain  Johnston could only rely on  "dead reckoning", and sounding  leads. It was not so surprising  then as his ship proceeded in a  northerly direction, for the Captain to assume that he was off  Tatoosh Island near Cape Flattery. Instead, he was thirty  miles off course across the Straits  of Juan De Fuca when his ship  drove hard aground three miles  east of Pachena Point. By this  time, there was a howling gale  blowing with tremendous waves.  Snow and sleet cut visability to  lighthouses were not the; complete answer, marine disasters  still occurred and in increasing  numbers, for in heavy weather,  snow storms and pea-soup fogs,  lights and horns could go unseen  and unheard, until too late.  The first wireless stations were  very crude, had low output  spark sets with a limited range.  These were used almost excl  TED HUME  SERVICES  AUTHORIZED  Isso!

Pioneers invariably had a rough  road to travel, and the pioneers  of radio in British Columbia were  no exception. Around 1910,  the Pacific coast group of stations  consisted of three. Vancouver,  Victoria and Pachena Point. The  latter station situated on the west  coast of Vancouver Island in an  isolated spot at the entrance of  Juan de Fuca Straits possessed  many shortcomings, the main  one being a 1.5 KW spark set  hopelessly inadequate for the job.  In order to transmit a message to  Victoria, a distance of only eighty  miles, the operator would have to  contact the U.S. station at Cape  Flattery to act as relay.  Old time operators would  reminate on the difficulties of  establishing communication, for  frequently a week or more would  pass and not a dot or dash would  be heard.  It is hard to say what was the  greatest factor in wireless becoming the prime navigational aid  of the twenties, there were so  many advantages both of a  human value and commercial  nature. Shipping companys had  much to gain, there were lower  insurance rates charged as  marine underwriters took note of  the increased safety to the travelling public. There was also a  great saving on fuel consumption  due to bearings carefully given,  thus cutting down on running  time.  Finally deep-sea captains overcoming scepticism and prejudice,  sought bearings from this new  fangled invention, and were surprised by their accuracy. No  longer did they have to rely on  "shooting the sun", "dead  reckoning" or lead lines. A new  pattern in navigation was set;  a ships master could now relax  secure in the knowledge that at  any time he could have an accurate report on his ship's  position.  Indicative of the struggle to  contain ship disasters, was  an  offical report for the fiscal year  ending 1922 issued by the Radiotelegraph Branch of Marine and  Fisheries. Not only did it clearly  demonstrate the worth of the  wireless stations in general as  an aid to shipping, but by reason  of the dual nature of duties performed, played a great part in  the early development of British  Columbia.  The report stated that there  were thirty-seven coast stations  operating in the Dominion. The  Pacific coast group consisted of  nine; During that period, the  combined services across Canada  (both coasts and the Great  Lakes) were called on to render  assistance to forty-seven shipping  casualties, the east coast twenty-  four, the Great Lakes eleven  and the Pacific group twelve.  With losses at almost four ships  a month, it was obvious that  much more had to be done,  wireless stations were still in  their infancy. Receiving and  sending sets, both on ship and  shore had to be updated, and  services expanded.  For transmission, new 5 KW  sets of Marconi pattern were put  into general use; but at certain  stations, due to location, this  power was exceeded, such as  Alert Bay, and Estevan Point,  the latter using a 25 KW set of  naval construction and design,  making it one of the most powerful and efficient on the north  Pacific coast.  Primarily the Alert Bay station  was erected as a navigational aid  for shipping, but as new stations  were built with D/F units that  operated closer to the north  Pacific trade routes (with less  land interference) this station  found a new role. With the  relatively short range of existing  transmitters, and being midway  between Prince Rupert and Vancouver, it was in a prime position  to relay thousands of messages  from remote mining, logging  and fishing operations along the  coast.     Also working  in   close  co-ordination with the Alert'  Bay hospital, (the only one in!  that region) many lives were*  saved due to prompt action by!  the operators. *  A few companys maintained,  their own radio stations, andj  fed their traffic through the;  government services. '���  At Anyox, then an active  mining centre in the northern  part of the province, with the��  Granby Consolidated Mining;'  Smelting and Power Company;*  operated their own station;)  The Whalen Pulp and Paper)'  Mills, with plants at Port ���Alice.)  Swanson Bay and Thurston har^  bour had installations at each/  The Pacific Mills at Ocean Falls*  was another. The Masset Timber< -  Company Ltd., a large scale;  operation at Buckley Bay, put! ���  their station to good use. Last!  but not least, was the fishing!  industry represented by the!  Canadian Fishing Co., whof  operated stations at Butedale;  and Margaret Bay canneries.       ��  Celebrating  our 7th year in business in '77  Winter Tires at Super Savings  OwBJg lIFGoodrich  Effective October 26 - November 12,1977  dFGoodrich  77% Sale  Trailmaker XTP  Radial Steel  LIST  SALE  BR78x13  $66.10  $50.89  DR78x14  70.10  53.97  ER78x14  73.30  56.44  FR78x14  78.85  60.71  GR78x14  86.20  66.37  HR78x14  93.70  72.14  FR78x15  81.65  62.87  GR78x15  91.20  70.22  HR78x15;  96.80  74.53  LR78x15^  109.60  84.39  X  N  One Stop Service  it Wheel Alignments it Tire Sales-all sizes  it Wheel Balancing Cars - Trucks - Earthmovers  it Suspension Repairs ^ Custom Wheels  ir Tire Repairs-all sizes -& Custom Accessories  ir Free-Coffee  Tires Studded $7.00 ea. passenger car  $7.77 each light truck  Bonus offerings  free  installation  ilFGoodrich  77% Sale  Silvertown Belted  Trailmakers  .Bonus Offerings  77% Sale  ^Goodrich sl,vertown  Trailmaker Poly 78  LIST  SALE   N  A78x13  $43.00  $28.95  B78x13  43.65  29.95  D78x13  44.15  30.95  D78x14  45.40  31.95  E78x14  45.80  32.95  F78x14  47.85  33.95  G78x14  5Q.90  35.95  H78x14  53.90  37.95  A78x15  45.60  30.95  G78x15  50.90  35.95  H78x15  53.90  37.95  v                                                                                  \  LIST  SALE  A78x13  $52.25  32.95  C78x14  54.15  33.95  E78x14  55.80  34.95  F78x14  57.05  36.95  G78x14  63.55  39.95  H78x14  68.75  42.95  F78x15  57.05  36.95  G78x15  68.75  43.95  H78x15  68.75  43.95  J78x15  73.90  48.95  L78x15  79.50  50.95  \  \  CHECK FOR OUR LIGHT TRUCK  77% SALE  COASTAL  1 mile west of Gibsons on Hwy 101  Monday - Saturday 8:30 - 5:30  886-27QO  TIRES  .J V.
