Gibsons to elect mayor and aldermen  candidates-these men seek office  LARRY LABONTE  Mayor Larry Labonte has been  elected at the last two mayoral  elections in the village of Gibsons  and this year he is again offering  himself as mayor for a third  term of office.  Labonte was born in Drum-  mondville. Que. in 1917 where  he worked first in his father's  real estate and insurance business. Later he worked in hotels  and restaurants before coming to  B.C. in 1942. where he has  worked in pulp mills ever since.  He came to Port Mellon in 1951,  got married to his wife Agnes,  herself prominent in local affairs,  in 1953 when the couple moved to  Gibsons. The couple have two  daughters.  The incumbent mayor has long  been active in community affairs,  being active in youth recreational  activities, particularly little  league baseball and soccer. He  helped form the Gibsons Athletic  Association in 1967v/ 7He/:"WaiS'  very: jactive;* too, -��-in union work  until 1972.  It is with a quiet pride that  the mayor points to the record of  achievement that he has seen  during the four years that he  has been mayor. "The village  has progressed fairly well in the  last four years," says Labonte.  He points out that in that time  the village has acquired a museum, a curling club, an old age  pensioners hall, a dog pound, an  ambulance      building,      almost  seven miles of pipe underground,  and a new water well. He points  out that there is a workyard for  Municipal employees, that the  reservoirs have been fenced in.-  "$80,000 worth of paving has  been done in the last four years  and an I.C.B.C. office . insti-  tuded," says the mayor.  "It has been a pleasure to work  with the various aldermen over  the past four years," says Labonte. The mayor also makes  note of the good service that the  village has received both from  its office staff and from the  outside workers.  In continuing his list of achievements, Labonte indicates that the  village now owns quite a bit of  waterfront property and takes  satisfaction that village employees now have a better place  to dry their clothes and eat their  meals. He notes that the Gibsons  swimming pool will probably be  in operation early in the new  year; that the new tennis courts  at Dougal Park have been refurbished and another one installed at Brothers Memorial Park.  He says that Brothers Park is  having drainage installed and  should be ready for soccer and  rugby next year. This winter  top soil and grass seeding will  be established.  Among the other improvements to the water system, the  mayor notes that a new pump  has been installed at the Henry  Road reservoir which will supply  water for North Road and Park  Road. Bids will be opened this  week, he says, for a 250,000  gallon water tank at Henry Road  - aif-an* elevation<��� of 700' feet #nd a  cost of approximately'.;$340,000,  which figure includes1 the cost of  the No. 2 well and the chlorinator.  Mayor Labonte stresses, with  pride, that the listed improvements have been brought about  while the taxes throughout the  four year period have remained  constant at 29;04 mills. "If  re-elected," says the mayor, "I  hope to bring the village the same  kind of quiet, effective administration it has enjoyed for the past  fourvears."  g\  er  Is?;. yV-K  ?fv^  LORNE BLAIN  Lome Blain has come forward  to challenge Mayor Larry Labonte  in the Gibsons MunicipaL elections to be held on November  19th. -This native of Vancouver,  was born on May 28th,1913.   ;7"7  He has, he says, a most varied.  background.. He has been a pulp7  mill employee; for some years he  owned   a   retail j furniture   arid  appliance   store, in   Kimberley;  he was a life underwriter for. a  few years in Gibsons, Vancouver,  and Nelson; and prior to his  retirement he was the Terminal  Manager for the B.C. Ferry  Corporation at Langdale.  Blain's community activities *  include certain key posts in the'"  Cub and Scout movements, including Cub and Scoutmaster and  Group Committee Chairman. He  was secretary of the Kimberley  Ski Club and Amateur Athletic  Association, was a member of  the Nelson Kiwanis Club and  served as Campaign Chairman  for the Nelson Community Chest.  If elected mayor. Blain looks  forward to working constructively  needs of the community. "In  municipal government," says  Blain, "it is naive to make  promises but my role would be  to offer strong direction."  Blain stresses that his chief.,  reason for running in the mayoralty race is occasioned by his  concern about the water situation  in Gibsons. He is adamantly  opposed to the village relinquishing control of its water  system to the Regional Board.  Six Sechelt aldermanic candidates  FRODEJORGENSEN  with   a 'strong   council   for   the   . Frode Jorgensen, a candidate for  an aldermanic seat on the Sechelt  Village Council, has operated his  barber shop in Sechelt for the  past twenty years. He became a  barber on the '19th of November  forty-eight years ago in Denmark  where he was born in 1915. He  and his wife, Tove, have raised 5  children in the local area, all of  whom attended Elphinstone Secondary School.  During his twenty years in Sechelt, Jorgensen has coached and  refereed soccer for the children of  the area. He is past-President of  the Lions Club in Sechelt; has  been active in the Sechelt Chamber of Commerce and on the Senior Citizens Housing Committee;  he is the past-Vice-President of  the Sunshine Coast Ice Arena.  Presently Jorgensen is a member  of the Board of Variance for Sechelt.  If elected to council, Jorgensen  intends to keep the taxes as low  as possible and to listen to wishes  of the people. "We're hearing  too much from the bureaucrats."  he says. "The public is taking second place to the plans of the  bureaucracy."  Jorgensen feels that the installation of the sewer service will  mean changes for the village of  Sechelt. "Sewage service means  development," says Jorgensen.  The candidate for alderrnanic office feels that such development  should proceed at a reasonably  slow pace. "Too much too fast",  says Jorgensen. "cannot be planned properly and reasonable pace  in development can help keep  the taxes at a reasonable level "  JACK MARSHALL  Jack Marshall was born in  Kansask, Saskatchewan in 1919  and raised in Saskatoon. He went  to war in 1939 with the First'Can-  adian Infantry Brigade and saw  service in Sicily and all through  Italy as well as in the European  theatre later in the war. He is  presently running for alderman in  the forthcoming Gibsons municipal election.  Jack had moved to B.C. in 1938  and after the war started a hardware, plumbing and heating service. After selling that business,  the Marshalls went into the  plumbing and heating business  on the Sunshine Coast; Their  latest venture was Peninsula  Plumbing Ltd. which they sold to  present owner Ray Coates. At  present the aldrmanic candidate  is semi-retired.  A resident of Gibsons for many  years, Marshall was active in the  Kinsmen Club and Chairman of  the Board of Trade back in the  'fifties. The past few years he has  spent 'trying to mind his own  business" until the recent controversy over the Gibsons water  system brought him into the  political arena.  "My primary concern is the retention of Gibsons' identity,"  says Marshall. "We must keep  control of our water. We are  willing to co-operate but will not  be bull-dozed."  Another area of expressed concern on the. part of Marshall is  the lack of harmony on council,  staff, both inside and outside  workers. Marshall attributes this  lack of harmony to the actions of  certain of the aldermen. "We  are heading for labour, trouble if  some aldermanic attitudes don't  change."  JIM METZLER  Alderman Jim Metzler was born  in Vancouver in 1914., He has  been serving as alderman on the  village council of Gibsons for the  past three years. For two of  those three years he has been  the village's representative to the  Regional Board while the first  year he was on council he was a  very active alternate to the Regional Board.  Metzler was married in 1936  and has three grown children.  From the years of 1937 to 1942 he  was an accountant,  later Asst.  ��� Manager of the Demuth Lumber  Company near Princeton. He  joined the R.C.A.F. asx a navigator from 1942-46, gaining an  honourable discharge -yvith the  rank of Flying Officer.  Metzler was self-employed for  one year after his discharge and  then began the career that was  to continue until his retirement^  two years  ago,   that  of  S^cre^  tary-Treasurer for school districts)  in the province of British Coltiin-^  bja^He_serve4^in School.Dirtrimf  #17 in  Princeton from   1947 to',  1954; he was in S.D. ^i^om  1954 to 1957; District #75. Mission, employed him until 1968 at  which time he moved to the Sunshine Coast.  "Council has to start working  together and get back to serving  the people", says . Metzler.  "We've got to quit waffling."  Metzler feels that he has  gained a wealth of experience  during his three years attending  :.council and the regional board  and wishes to put that experience  at the service of the people of  Gibsons. "Three years experience shouldn't be thrown away,"  he says.  LAWRENCE TRAINOR  Captain Lawrence (Larry)  Trainor is a candidate for aldermanic election in i the Gibsons  Municpal election. Trainor was  born in Quebec City in December  1917. He is an ex-Army man  and the son of an Army man. His  parents were of Prince Edward  Island stock.  Early in his life the family  moved to Ottawa where Trainor  attended St.  Pat's College  and  played senior hockey and football. On September 4th, 1939  he joined' the Royal: Canadian  Army Pay Corps where he continued to serve until the-3rd of  September, 1972.  Following his retirement from  the army, he lived at Bells Corners, twelve miles west of the  city of Ottawa in the township  of Napean. Trainor took employment with the township, being  in charge of the communication  centre as dispatcher-clerk. Plans  to retire to Florida were scrapped  when the sun came out during  the last two days of a visit to the  Sunshine Coast in 1976 and he  bought a house in Gibsons,  where he presently resides.  Trainor says that he has always  been interested in community  affairs and has worked in community and property associations  and has been a member:of the  Kiwanis Club.

Nicholson was born on  February 20, 1932, in Donkon,  a coal-mining village in Cape  Breton, N.S.  Nicholson moved to. B.C. in  1955, operating a laundromat for  six years. The bulk of his twenty-  odd years in this province, however, have been spent in the television service.  7 Nicholson bought a summer  home in Welcome Woods in  1965 before moving to the area  permanently in 1971. He now  operates the Sunshine Coast  T.V, Sales and Service business  in Sechelt.  : Nicholson moved to Selma Park  in 1972'and served there as an  executive    of. the    Community  Association for a couple of years  He has also been an executive  member of the Sechelt and District Chamber of Commerce  over the past four years Presently he is the Treasurer of the  Chamber.  When asked what he has to  offer the Sechelt voters. Nicholson points to the fact that he has  operated successful businesses in  both North Vancouver and the  Sunshine. Coast "1 have dealt  with "the-public all2" my workirig-  life." saiys Nicholson "1 do rtbr  profess to be an expert in any  field but 1 contend that when  'common sense' was^given out I  got my due share."  Nicholson feels that one of the  most important things the voters  of Sechelt should be concerned  about is the level of taxation.  "I will endeavour to keep taxation at the present levels",  Nicholson asserts. He points'out  that with the coming of'100%  assessments in the near future  the mill rate will have to be lowered to keep the cost to the public the same as it is today.  Nicholson says that he would  bend every effort to prevent the  disaster that happened in Seaside Village from ever happening  again. "1 also notice that the new  road to the Arena is still not  built. I would explore every  avenue open to me to have this  road built," he savs.  MORGAN THOMPSON  Morgan Thompson was born in  Kitchener, Ontario, in 1930. He  came to Sechelt in the spring of  1954 and went into business in  the men's wear store he still operates on Cowries Street. For a  time he was also involved in the  movie -theatre business locally.  Thompson has twice served on  the Sechelt Village Council, this  last term for two years and ten  years ago for three.    He is pre  sently running for re-election  in  the November Selections.  _ In addition to his service on  council, Thompson has President  ofthe Kinsmen Club. President  of the Chamber of Commerce.  Chairman of the Timber Days  Committee, and co-ordinator  of the Christmas Tree Lighting  Committee. He and his wife.  Peggy, have five children "all  grown and flown".  "Whatever comes before council is important." says Thompson.  "At the present time the Sechelt  Vicinity Plan assumes importance." The alderman also  stresses the need for close contact with the electorate. "We  are not running Vancouver or  Victoria", he says, "but a village  of eight or nine hundred people  and hopefully we can keep  things on a personal level."  Alderman Thompson says he  has no great desire to see any  one thing pushed ahead. "1  want to see the growth of the village proceed in an orderly  fashion."  *���*.

TERRY AMIEL  Terry Amiel is the Coast News  cartoonist. He also runs the  Peninsula Dry Cleaners in  Sechelt and Gibsons and is an  aldermanic candidate in the forthcoming Gibsons Muncipal elections.  Terry was' born in Vancouver  in 1950 and wasted little time  in starting to visit the Sunshine  Coast, starting to visit relatives  up here with his parents in 1952.  Ever since that first visit he has  been visiting at regular intervals and at every available  opportunity. ^  Before settling'on the Sunshine  Coast in June 1976 and going  into business, Terry travelled  extensively and worked at a  variety of jobs, the most recent  being a welding foreman on the  oil rigs in Scotland. Other jobs  include a stint as a morgue attendant, time as a barman and as  a writer. In addition he has  built hotels in Switzerland and  looked after penguins and llamas  in England.  He met his wife, Jenny, in  England. The couple have no  children "yet."  . Candidate Amiel feels that  "People who are working in the  .community or in business should  be represented on the council.  The council should .reflect the  wishes of the populace," he  says. Wherever he has lived,  says Amiel, he has tried to put  something back into the community, and comes forward as  a candidate in this Municipal  election in the hope of being able  to contribute something to the  village of Gibsons.  ��� Please   turn   to .

Stott was born in London, England, in 1948, coming to Vancouver in 1959. He is a graduate  of the University of British Columbia, holding' a degree in  Community Planning.  In the upcoming election Stott  seeks the aldermanic seat and  has also put his name forward  as candidate for the position of  the Sechelt representative to the  Regional Board. He has lived  in this area for four years and  was formerly the Chief Community; Planner for the Regional District. At present his occupa-.  tions are journalist and broadcaster, oh government affairs and  he is a partner in a locally-  \J_^^m^j^m^mg^��_��_v__m  sultants.  His aims in seeking local office  are fourfold. He hopes to improve relations between the people and the local government  through more open discussion  with the public and more respect  by government for the views of  local residents and businessmen/  He is concerned about protection of the environment but says  this can be done without making  needed residential and commercial development impossible or  too expensive because of too-  strict regulations.  Stott is also concerned that  there should be equal applications of the regulations to  everyone. "There should be no  special treatment of favoured  individuals." he says. The fourth  of his concerns is that there  should be proper planning of  downtown Sechelt so that the  community will'be ready for the  development that the new sewers  will bring in order to ensure that  the development- will improve  the community.  "My previous experience and  interest." says Stott, "have made  me familiar with the way local  government works. Most new  aldermen need up to a year to  learn the ropes, but 1 have a  head start and would be effective right away. I have the.  time and energy needed to do a  good job for the people of Se-  HENRY HALL  Henry Hall has thrown his hat  into the ring in the search for  the dual position of alderman on  the Sechelt Village Council and  Sechelt's representative to the  Regional Board. Hall resides in  West Sechelt with his wife Lvdia  and four year-old son Casey. The  couple also has three married  daughters and eight grandchildren.  Henry Hall was born in Vancouver forty-six years ago. Upon  leaving Vancouver High School  in 1946 he sailed commercially on  coastal streamers for two years  then in 1948 he entered a four-  year apprenticeship in the family trade of plastering. On completion of his apprenticeship. Hall  entered the competitive contracting world as a Plastering  Contractor with the aid of a S200  loan from a finance company.  The company he formed employed more than two hundred employees at its peak and re-shaped  its type of business with the changing times.  Among the hundreds of major  buildings  it   completed  are   in-  national Airport, ihe Culgar;. International Airport, the MacMiilan Bloedel Building, several  buildings on both t.BC. and  S.F.U. campuses, government offices in Vancouver and Victoria.  the C.B.C. building, sixty provincial hospitals including Vancouver General Hospital .and St.  Paul's, and several major shopping centres throughout tin.: entire province - tiotaoK Park Royal. Guildford, and l.ansdoAiie.  Hall's association with the Sunshine Coast goes back to 194"  when he visited the area daily as  an employee aboard the' Union  Steamships, the S.S.Capilano and  the M.V. Lady Rose. From I9o0  to 1970 he contracted into this area from his Vancouver office,  carrying out contracts oii the  West Sechelt School, the Langdale School, the Roberts Creek  School, and the Elphinstone  School. Hall contracted for work  on St.Mary's Hospital it) 19<��3-o4  and again for an addition to the  hospital in 1970.

It's  not enough that they've got us all  thoroughly confused about the issue of  the Gibsons water system but just  recently they have been adding some  very strange licensing decisions to the  . growing confusion. Alderman Metcalfe  said at last week's meeting "We are in  favour of creating local employment."  Really, alderman? It would be hard for  us to determine that fact by the actions  of council.  Four local men operating two businesses were given permission to use the  old   Pazco   Fibreglass   building   a   few  months ago.     Since  then  the  council  has waffled and fiddled around in the  face of a public outcry against the businesses  that apparently  only  they  can  notice.    The individuals involved have  bent  over  backwards  to   comply   with  council's   wishes.      Walls   have   been  fibreglassed,  hours  of work  are  such  that nothing to cause noise  is  undertaken except between the hours of nine  and five,  largely  on  weekdays.     The  occupants of the building have expressed  a willingness to build fences to avoid  any   annoyance   for   their   neighbours.  Suddenly last week the  council  lifted  the business licence from the two enterprises on account of some zoning foofara  that  even  they don't  seem to  understand and certainly can't explain and four  jobs are about to disappear.   Of course  they waffled again and granted a thirty  day extension, but what kind of nonsense  is this?  As Mayor Larry Labonte tried to point  out the Pazco Fibreglassing building  has housed commercial enterprises for  the past twenty-eight years but suddenly  a similiar use is a major cause of controversy. As everybody knows, the  council has professed some concern  about the need for the revitalization of  the harbour area of Gibsons, yet this  decision comes on the heels of another  council decision not to allow a young  lady, Wendy-Lou Milner establish a  crafts store behind Simpson Sears in a  disused building because they are going  to upgrade the property in six months or  so for a parking lot. Ms. Milner knew  it would be a temporary accommodation  for her store but it afforded her an  opportunity to get a low-rent start, to  her endeavours. She had already done  considerable cleaning and painting when  the council issued a stop-work order.  It is sufficient to say that if the present  council .were acting deliberately to stifle  enterprise in the harbour area they  could hardly be doing a better job of it.  It is to be hoped that the council which  will take office after the upcoming elections will have a more realistic grasp of  the economic situation which prevails  at the present time and somehow manages to hack their way through their own  red tape sufficiently to enable them to  allow the people of this area to make a  living.  security...  Columnist George Matthews, an  avowed Liberal himself, affords us a  fascinating glimpse of the deviousness  that he attributes to the mentality of the  Liberal Party of Canada in his excellent  piece this week. Accordingftb George  the present security scandal in Ottawa is  the manufacture of the Liberals themselves in order to take everybody's mind  off the abysmal mess they have made  and continue to make of the economy  and virtually everything else.  The Coast News's editorial point of  view is more simply based. Perhaps we  lack the subtlety for true deviousness.  In any case we find that here in Canada  after we have been tut-tutting smugly  about the Watergate troubles of our  southern neighbour we too have an  organization, presumably at the behest  of its masters or without their knowledge,  which is even worse, which routinely  raids the offices of accredited political  parties and even burns down barns in  the name of national security.  %    ':iK    ;-?i ��7 -Tp' ''X  '" Prime Minister Trudeau, with all  his petulance showing, ever determined  to appear a strong man, asserts that if  what the RCMP Security Branch did was  illegal then perhaps the law should be  changed to accommodate them. Marvellous Pierre! It would seem that  Trudeau is bidding fair to become a first  class tragic figure. Last week he reached  heights of political fatuousness seldom  attained. One could almost feel sorry  for him if that wasn't democracy and  Canada that the arrogant and unprincipled twit was petulantly playing with.  and war  It is the time of year to remember those  who died in two world wars and by  extension those who have died in the  other wars which have distinguished  the 20th Century. There is an excellent  article called Witnesses to War which  appears in the Saturday, November Sth,  edition of the Canadian Magazine,  delivered with the Saturday Province,  which is worthy of attention. The article  is a moving series of first-hand accounts  collected by Heather Robertson about  what it means to be at war.  Perhaps some objection could be  raised to the front cover of the magazine  to the question over a picture of two  soldiers helping a fallen companion.  FOR WHAT? it demands in large red  letters.    For what they were led to be  lieve was right in the case of the First  World War and because there was no  choice in the second. If, in the second  half of the twentieth century there seems  to be some slight dilution in man's  eagerness for battle we must be pleased.  But the men who fell will only have  fallen in vain if we who are privileged to  live in peace and security now neglect  to learn the lessons of the brutality and  mindlessness of war that they died to  provide lis with and if we neglect to bend  all our energies towards the end of  settling our disputes and containing  our greed and selfishness to a point  where such enormous and dreadful  blood-letting will never again be the  human experience.  For what did they fall?   At least that  we should remember.  from the files of Coast News  5 YEARS AGO  A riot of colour and beehive of activity  describes the third annual three-day  Craft Fair by Roberts Creek Parents  Auxiliary in Roberts Creek Community  Hall.  10 YEARS AGO  Almost any morning about 9 o'clock  you will see the greatest assortment of  birds, blackbirds, crows, bluejays and  seagulls following in the wake of the bird  lady as she makes her way down the hill  behind the Coast News. Mrs. Harry  Winn has for years taken on the self-  imposed job of feeding the birds on her  way to shop. As soon as she comes out  of her gate carrying a shopping bag,  the word goes out and her birds come  flocking, to eat right out of her hands.  15 YEARS AGO  Scout leaders Corp.  Tic Payne,  Bob  Pehota,   George    Flay    and    assistant  Bernard McLeod took the 1st Wilson  Creek Boy Scout troop on a weekend  camporee during the week of October  26th.  Dr. J. D. Hobson has joined the  medical clinic of Doctors: Swan, Paetkau,  Burtnick and Morris.  20 YEARS AGO  Two persons in Gibsons report seeing  Sputnik in its outer space travels. Mr.  J. Gordon saw it November 8th at 5:50  a.m. coming from the south-southwest.  He watched it for 30 seconds.  25 YEARS AGO  A new much needed business is about  to start in Gibsons. Word has been  received from Mr. Gordon Mooney that  a garbage collection service will be  started in the first week of the new year.

In the mid 1930's, John and Helen  Galliford built a summer camp west of Orange Road for students  from their Stratford School in Vancouver. With onset of the Battle  of Britain, some youngsters evacuated to Canada spent the duration  with the Gallifords, their home away from home. Here, youngest  by her side, Counsellor Caroline Marsh keeps a careful eye on her  group below camp property acquired from pioneer Joe Smith.

I have  undertaken since I first entered  the wonderful world of journalism, I have mentioned on two or  three occasions that I am a long-  ; time associate, and happily so,  of dogs. What I believe I have  not heretofore mentioned is that  I am also a life-long admirer of  cats.  The first cat of my memory,  was a tortoise-shell female  which we owned;'if:that's ever  the word for cats, when we lived  upstairs in 10 Sunnyside Crescent in Mauchline when. I was  four or five.- I can't remember  much about the cat, who was  grandly named Juno, other than  17'can remember hating my  cousins when they came to visit  and sometimes mistreated her.  She died tragically. Somehow  when she was very pregnant  hot jam that my mother was"  making got spilled on her. Her"  kittens were born soon after  variously deformed and the  mother cat died. ,  Prior to Juno, but only by  hearsay, was a black family cat  which predated me whose spe-7  ciality lay in terrorizing dogs.  She, I believe it was a she, had  a sure-fire technique of leaping  onto the backs of the dogs,  anchoring herself with her front  claws while she spurred the  poor howling canine onwards with  her ever-digging back claws.        <  After the tragic death of Juno,  I suppose there was a period  when we didn't have a cat be-:.  cause the next one I can remember I was quite a bit older,  eight or nine I would guess, when  we had moved across the road to  a slightly smaller but downstairs  house, my father had a miner's  chest and the stairs bothered:  him. The cat I remember most  vividly during the ten years or  so that we lived at No. 7 Sunny-  side, was ^the first one, a black  and white Persian female called  less-grandly. Fluffy.  You must remember that No.  7 Sunnyside was part of a pre-war ,  housing scheme with large blocks  of four, five, or even six family ;  dwellings   in    large   rough-cast  cement   covered   blocks.      The .  blocks were "arranged in rectan- {.  gular groups with the front gar-1  ens along the outside of the rec-r;  tangles  and  the  postage-stamp7  back  gardens   all  carefully   de-'  lineated  with  privet  hedges   in  the   centre    of   the    rectangle. "f  There were many, many cats in  "The Scheme" as it was called,  all, like the people, grouped in a  densely occupied place.    At the  time that we had Fluffy, however, \  it   seemed   that   they   were   all  male.     There  was, just  across '  the   rectangle   on   Jean   Amour'  Drive, a black female belonging;���  to the Colquhon's, but she was I  old and worn out with innumer-".  able   litters    and   when    Fluffy  arrived at adulthood every torn  cat in the vicinity - and  there  were hundreds - besieged her.  They leapt in the open windows .  in the summer time and landed  on my father's chest as he lay  asleep. The doors had metal  draft-protectors on the bottom  which the cat would rattle when  she wanted in. Sometimes she'd  rattle frantically, and I'd rush to  the door. By the time I got there  she was in the backyard taking  evasive action around the clothes  poles with three tomcats in hot  pursuit. She'd dash for the  door when the light showed and  sometimes ended up in the kit-  chen'with still a "couple .of tomcats  in pursuit. ��������� ���'.    '���������.:���-,���  They lay' in a ceaseless vigil  around our house, each with  territory staked out and dividing  their motionless attention between our door and their rivals.  Sometimes they sneaked in and  sprayed the door of the. food  cupboard lustily. They fought  incredibly loud battles for* the  favoured vantage points and 1  hated them.  I was full of a naive and a  passionate protectiveness. I  made great charges at them with  stones and water guns, I sneaked  out the front door with jugs and  pails of water to where they  wainted warily by the more  often-used backdoor; I tried to'  train Fluffy to walk on a leash  so I could take her outside and  protect her from the villains. ' 1  wasn't at all clear what it was  they did to her but 1 new it was  associated with kittens and 1  never understood why she always  wanted out to answer their seductive yowlings.  After Fluffy the Fertile we had  some bad luck with cats. They,  mostly ginger cats, were stolen,  got lost, and one poor kitten  became paralyzed gradually from  the back paws up till only the  head was mobile and there came  a gap of fifteen  years  when  1  Anthem far  ?$ Doomed Youth  What passing-bells for these who die as cattle?

Then in the Crowsnest Pass in  1969 a splendid white Persian  kitten with a magnificent raccoon  striped tail walked in unannounced and adopted the family and  I was caught again. We called  her Fidele and as far as I know  she still lives comfortably in the  Bay area of Gibsons, having  abandoned me when the frequency with which I changed my  domicile just became more than  she "wished to bear.1 ' Then in  Roberts Creek there was* a splendid black tomcat called Spook  and now, full circle, I have again  a young tortoise shell female  called Tippits.  At the beginning of this rambling piece I said 1 was an admirer  of cats rather than a cat-lover.  Cats inspire and reciprocate a  rather stately and dignified  affection in which there is no  question of ownership, it seems to  me. 1 admire them for their  grace, their elegance, their self-  sufficiency. There are the classic  house pet, a moving decoration,  gracing whatever scene they  occupy. They are also the classic  killing machine and have gone  unaltered by mutation since  pre-historic times simply because they are so functional that  mutation has not been required  of them.  In their dealings with man  they insist on absolute unfettered  equality and somehow convey the  impression of an ancient wisdom.  We are told that the Egyptians  worshipped them and I am sure  that the cats so worshipped  accepted the devotion of the  Egyptians with a regal equanimity as being only their obvious  and totally justified due.  I don't want this to get around  but the Federal government has  been bugging me. 1 know it  sounds bizaare. Why on earth  would those people in Ottawa,  the same people accused of  bugging Joe Clarke and the  Parti Quebecois, pick on an insignificant, small town school  teacher to bug? Just the same  I'm being bugged.  I'm not sure when the bugging began but I first became  aware of it earlier this year when  the Trudeau government tried to  con the people with the "national  unity" sting. I discovered the  truth only this week when the  revelations of RCMP involvement hit the front pages, driving  inflation, unemployment, labour  disputes and the decline of the  Canadian dollar into the back  corners of my daily newspaper.  How is it I know the Federal  government is bugging me and  not someone else? The answer is  really quite simple; the people  don't give a damn about national  unity or RCMP involvement in  security surveillance. These bugging devices are purely creations  of the Liberal government in  Ottawa. The people arc worried  about jobs, wages and the cost  of things. The Liberal government on the other hand is setting  up the scam for the next election.  A security scandal is just the  thing to deflect the national concern away from the real issues.  Here is the scenario: Last month  the Liberal government was faced  with an immense public relations  problem. Unemployment was  rising; inflation, despite controls.  was continuing, the debate over  the consequences of the period ot  decontrols on wages and prices  was beginning to heat up and  became meaningful and on top  of all that people were beginning  to listen to Joe Clarke. Most  people were beginning to see  through the "national unity"  nonsense and the Liberals were  forced to look around for a new  non-issue.  At the same time, newspapers  were beginning to reveal a number of clandestine capers by the  security section of the RCMP.  The problem for the Liberals was  how to turn this to their advantage. The solution was to allow  the thing to become blown all  out of proportion. The Liberals  if nothing else, know the mentality of the Canadian people.  They know for instance that the  people understand and are generally sympathetic with the need  for national security. They know  also that generally speaking the  people have faith in their national  police force. To go one step  further, they also are well aware  of the fact that a security scandal  of such miniscule proportions is  easy to solve.  Keeping these things in mind.  Trudeau and his cabinet have  allowed the "scandal" to get  completely out of hand. Joe  Clarke and Ed Broadbent talk of  nothing else - each secretly  hoping that he is more worthy of  being bugged than the other.  The    national    press    talks    ot  nothing else. Parliament has  been debating this issue to the  exclusion of more valuable dis  cussion. Even the CBC is in on  the act. I've had to turn my radio  off for the first time ih'ycars^'to  avoid hearing things like the  expert opinion of the parliamentary kitchen staff on the subject  of electronic devices in the dill  pickles.  Throughout the debate. Trudeau and Fox have stonewalled  beautifully. They will continue to  stonewall until the public Incomes totally bored. In the meantime they are not obliged to explain why the Canadian dolhu  is not worth a damn at home ��m  abroad, why the economy K  stagnant, why so many Canadians  arc unemployed and what's goinu  to happen when wage "and'price  controls are lifted.  When things ha\e cooled down  and the members of the opposition are in the trap so deep'.'they  won't be able to get out. the  government will announce thai  yes, on two or three occasions.  errors were made, biit since-  national security was al stake,  and some quick judgements wen.  called for. these were natural'  mistakes. Yes. they are sorry.  and new guidelines have -boon  established so that these 'errors,  will he avoided, in the luture.  We are sorry that the RCMP v.a*.  involved: the government at n.>  time meant to make .them' tin  scrapegoat. but an over/ealou  press is responsible Tor tarnishing  the image of the national police  agency; certainly not the govern  ment.  When it's all over, the Libera!  government will have stumblci:  and slithered its way a . littli  closer to next spring's election.  The leaders of the opposition  will have been discredited for  allowing themselves to get so  childishly carried away with such  unimportant trivia and the peopk  will say once again, the Liberals  solved the problem.  We're being set up for another  election. It's happened before.'  and it will happen again., Decontrols will not begin until-the  Liberals are ready for the election. The catastrophic results  of decontrols will not hit. until  the election is long over. By that  time, it won't matter anymore.    ,   '  Yes, 1 am bugged and every  Canadian who doesn't enjoy  being suckered should be bugged  as well.  Armistice Oay has become !he  symbol of in* lime wars wil I'nave  ceased and nations will live and  work together in peace, and  harmony. .  It is proper that on Thursday,  Nov. 11 we remember and salute  those brave men and women who  gave their lives to hasten that  day... and to offer a prayer that  their sacrifice will not be in vain.

LETTERS to the EDITOR  Waterworks     Candidate       Rebuttal  Editor:  The press has recently accused  the Chairman of the Village of  Gibsons' Water Committee of  being confused and without  saying why. My confusion stems  from two motions by Alderman  Metzler and passed by other  members of Council. The first  being:  "That the Sunshine Coast  Regional District examine and  proceed with all things necessary  to take over the water system  subject to provisions of the Municipal Act on any requests necessary to validate or enable the  Regional District to process  the request."  Alderman Metzler advised  Council that Mr. Tom Moore of  the Municipal Affairs Branch in  Victoria advised Mrs. Pressley,  Sec. of the S.C.R.D. that this  was the proper wording for this  motion. This was done without  the knowledge of the Gibsons  office. Was this Collusion?  Recently Alderman Metzler  made this motion for the wording  of the referendum; which was  passed. "Are you in favour of  the Village of Gibsons consolidating the existing Municipal  Water System with the S.C.R.D.  in an attempt to create a regional  system?  The question in the chairman's  mind is why the change from the  original ' 'take over'' to ' 'consolidation." There has been no  deviation from Alderman Met-  zler's original motion to sell out  our whole system, I am sure,  so why does he now call it a  consolidation without saying who  is consolidating. Also as a point  of interest, we are already interconnected with their water system and have agreed for further  co-operation that could be  mutually beneficial to both parties but without change of ownership.  I have also been accused of  unethically dragging my feet in  that 1 did not have the necessary  by-law prepared for an opinion  vote during the next election.  The original motion gave the  S.C.R.D. the responsibility for  them to "proceed with all things  necessary" and no request came  from the S.C.R.D.  Also, why would the Chairman  of the Water Committee take  the initiative to give a million  dollar asset away for one dollar,  especially when he is of the  opinion that it would be a detriment to the Village of Gibsons to  lose control of their water system?  Aside from, misquotes etc.,  I would like to go on record and  state that to date I can see no  advantage for Gibsons to sell  their water system. On the contrary, the upgrading programme  now on the books exceeds that of  the one proposed by the S.C.R.D.  and this can be done, I am sure,  with lower rates than now charged by the S.C.R.D.  I would however like to go on  record in that I recommend the  third proposal of our engineering  consultants that we interconnect  more fully with metering so that  each system can support the  other in a time of emergency.  Also, it is the opinion of knowledgeable and practical people that  the Village of Gibsons has more  than sufficient water to serve  our population at its present  growth rate until the end of-  this century.  S. K. Metcalfe  Editor:  In writing this, I inform the  public of my intention to run as  a candidate for the position of  alderman for the council in the  Village of Gibsons.  Since 1952, when I first came to  visit relations, 1 have spent most  of my holidays and summers in  the area. I have always considered Gibsons my second home.  During the years from 1971  to 1976 I travelled quite extensively through the Pacific and  Europe looking for "something  better", but always returned to  the place .1 loved. Returning  again with' my wife Jenny, this  time to make a home, I have  invested in a business and tried  to become involved in the community. Hopefully I can put  something back into the place  which has given me so much  happiness in the past.  Any person who is chosen to  represent the public, should: represent his feelings by his actions.  As a member of council I feel 1  could help reflect the wishes of  the people who want the best  for the community, both in  preservation of the natural beauty  of the area and the prosperity  of those who live and have a  vested interest here.  In short, by introducing myself  to council, I feel I can honestly  give something back in the way  of participation with the interest  and the well being in mind of  those who live and work here.

If we were given a comparison  it would be easier to decide on  the issue of highway v. ferry  service.  I am not so sure 1 agree with  your editorial that when the ferry  employees are not on strike that  the highway would not be used,  rather I would be inclined to  feel that the trucking companies  and tourists travelling with  trailers would utilize the highway almost 100% and, if this,was  so the; ferry .service could be  substantially reduced,; perhaps  even phased out eventually.  There has been an average of  one walkout per year.  Pender Harbour Citizen  Editor's Note: It Is our policy  that only signed letters be used.

Marion Jolicoeur  7!��� It is apparent that they understand the problems facing the  Pender Harbour and District  area and recognize the necessity  of maintaining the right of the  area to control its destiny.  ��� We are most fortunate in  having Joe Harrison, the President of the Pender Harbour and  District Ratepayers Association  run for Director of the Regional  Board in the coming election.  Joe   Harrison,   a   teacher,   is  a    well    education,    intelligent  young man with a family arid  with a stake in the future bl  the area. '*.  Furthermore he takes a ,yejf.y  active interest in community  affairs being particularly concerned with the welfare of tfie  clinic at Pender Harbour.  I am convinced that Joe Harrison will make an excellent  Regional Director, will fight for  the interests of the area, will  keep the people informed of all  matters affecting them and will  insist that all matters of a vital  nature be brought to referendum.

Masterpiece Theatre  is one television program that  generally manages to live up to  its name. Unlike the Five Stars  Theatres and Movies of The  Week on commercial t.v. that  more often than not, contradict  their titles with third-rate potboilers, this distinguished series  seldom disappoints. The chief  reason for this is that Masterpiece Theatre presents the cream  of the BBC television product -  literate theatre of a very high  order indeed. The unarguable  classic Upstairs; Downstairs was  first presented to North American  audiences here along with other  series of equal distinction, each  wittily prefaced and prologued by  the delightful and effortlessly  erudite Alistair Cook. The program's latest offering. Dickens  of London, lives up to the standard of its predecessors in every  respect.  The series is apparently based  on a book of the same title that  was a minor bestseller, a year or  so back. It employs an interesting device by making each episode a flashback as the aging  Dickens on his last American  reading-tour looks back at the  key events of a long and eventful  life. The initial segment deals  with the author's early childhood and. while impeccably  done, is a bit talky and slow-  paced. It serves mainly to introduce the Dickens family, shortly  before their fateful move to  London from the country. The  feckless, bumbling, eternally-  optimistic parents were of course,  tiie real-life prototypes of the  Micawbers in David Copperfield.  Pages  from a Life-Ldg  Peter Trower  The father in particular, is wonderfully well-drawn, full of bombast and high-flown schemes  that perpetually misfire. The  young Charles is clearly susceptible to the plummy rhetoric the  elder Dickens throws up like a  verbal smokescreen to hide his  woeful ineptitude as a breadwinner.  By the second episode, the  Dickens family has moved to  London and is learning the price  of being indigent in that pre-  Victorian city. Caught in a hopeless web of debt. Dickens senior  suffers the ignonimy of being  sent to debtor's gaol. His long-  suffering wife and the younger  children join him there while  Charles is sent to work at the  notorious blacking-factory. This  singularly dreadful place is shown  in all its squalidity, staffed in  those pre child-labour-law times,  with a gaggle of grubby urchins.  Since the operation is owned by  a cousin of the Dickens family,  young Charles is given a privileged post on the floor above the  factory-proper. This favouritism  incenses the two oldest boys  in the place who bully him unmercifully at every opportunity.  The sadistic foreman pointedly  overlooks this mistreatment.  Dickens received a basic training  in human perversity at this unpleasant place and its echoes  would reverberate through several of his later novels. Happily,  the situation soon resolves itself.

The next two or three episodes  deal with the author's young  manhood. He suffers an unrequited love-affair with a vain and  shallow girl who toys with his  emotions like a cat with a mouse.  He also begins to publish in  newspapers and magazines, the  witty, trenchant vignettes that  will eventually comprise his first  book: Sketches By Boz. He begins to build the avid following  that will hang on his every word  through the high Victorian Age  and long after. Eventually, he  marries a rather dithery woman,  given to vapours and vague complaints and begins to sire a  formidable brood in the manner  of his father before him. The  unlucky parents have become  almost totally dependent on their  successful son and Dickens has  in effect, two families to support.  Dickens senior is as full of ineffectual bluster as ever and.both  he and his wife have become  considerably habituated to drink.  His father's charm has begun to  wear thin and he becomes an  increasing embarrassment and  burden. Finally he became embroiled in a fraudulent insurance-  scheme and Dickens, his patience  at an end, ships both parents out  of London to a safe cottage in  the country.  Dickens' wife has an attractive,  much-younger sister who lives  with them in the spacious house,  the author's ever-burgeoning  fame has afforded him. Charles'  admiration for his pretty in-law  is unabashed and quite total.  He is not a man of minor enthusiasms. In one significant  scene, Dicken's wife watches  resignedly from an upstairs-  window, pregnant again as the  two go riding together. According to Alistair Cook, such  relationships were common in  repressed Victorian times. Extramarital sex was offically frowned-  upon but intense flirtations with  in-laws were considered quite  acceptable. There is no evidence  that Dicken's dalliance with his  sister-in-law is anything more  than platonic but upon her untimely death, he carries on in a  most extravagant manner, stopping work dead in the middle  of his latest serialized novel  Oliver Twist and taking time out  for an extended period of mourning. The author was prone to  melodramatic seizures as evidenced by his extraordinary  fixation on the young (and  reasonably comely) Princess Victoria. Upon her betrothal to  Prince Albert, he setup such a  hue and cry that some of his  close friends begin to question  his sanity.  Dickens later developes an  overweening interest in the practice of mesmerism, a technique  still largely bogged-down' in  charlatanry and fraud. He begins  to employ hypnotic-suggestion as  a means of calming his fluttery  wife. In the most outlandish  episode of the series, fittingly  entitled Nightmare, mesmerism  figures strongly as he flashes  back to his first tour of America  and a sinister encounter with a  doomed and haunted Edgar Allan  Poe. The horror-writer seeks  Dickens out at his hotel to inveigle help in securing an English  publisher. Dickens is aware of  the other man's work and orders  a bottle of expensive wine. The  gaunt Poe at first refuses to  drink but finally accepts a glass  which he drains thirstily. Four  bottles later, the two men of  letters stagger through the night  to a scurvy dive on a mean street  where Poe is obviously no  stranger. Now crazed with drink,  he declaims his poetry to Dickens  and a bemused audience of  prostitutes and opium-smokers.  Finally he confides to be bewildered but fascinated Englishman that by mesmerizing a man  at the point of death, he has been  able to suspend the process and  has held the subject in a trance  between worlds for the past  six-months. He promises to  provide proof of this macabre  feat, the following night.  A sceptical Dickens puts Poe's  assertations down to drunken  raving but precisely at midnight,  the following night, the American  shows up cold-sober. They embark by coach to a remote house.  The place appears deserted but  in a bedroom, the wild-eyed Poe  draws back a sheet to reveal a  corpselike man. He appears  dead but answers in sepulchral  tones when Poe addresses him.  Then the voice takes on a tormented note and the pitiful  figure pleads for release from  this unnatural state. Poe seems  cruelly reluctant to terminate the  experiment so Dickens, calling  on his own hypnotic knowledge,  commands the trance to end.  Released, the six-month corpse  collapses into putrefacation  as both men exit, gagging.  The incident closely follows a  short story of Poe's called The  Case of M. Valdemar and is,  one hopes, purely apocryphal.  There is strong evidence that Poe  and Dickens did actually meet  around this time but what actually  transpired between them is lost  to record. Still a series of this  calibre can be allowed such a  lapse into literate fantasy. For  the most part, it is an authentic  and unvarnished look at the life  and times of a brilliant writer  who was as human as he was  gifted.

"A Piece of the  Action."    Twilight Theatre  The Twilight Theatre will  present a varied program of  comedy and high-class horror  during the coming film week.  Wednesday through Saturday,  November 9 - 12, the film will  be the third in a series of comic  successes starring Sidney Poitier  and Bill Cosby. The film is  entitled A Piece of the Action.  The other film, which will play  at the Twilight Theatre Sunday  through Tuesday, November 13 -  15, is The Heretic which concerns itself with the same protagonist, Regan MacNeil, that  filmgoers met in The Exorcist  and Exorcist II.  Insofar as the comedy is  concerned, the enormous success  of Oscar winner Sidney Poitier  and Emmy winner Bill Cosby,  working in professional harmony  and accentuating the humourous  side of the ordinary man's life  has brought about another winner. The prevous films featuring  the two were box-office successes  from Aberdeed to Australia.  Three pretty actresses are also  featured in fine roles in the film  in the persons of Denise Nicholas, Tracy Reed and Hope Clarke.  In The Heretic. Regan Mac-  Neil has become a bridge, a  link between science and religion.  What she and the people with  who she interacts discover strains  what once was considered scientific acceptability and is as terrifying as it is enticing, as frightening  as it is seductive.  The management of the Twilight Theatre also wishes to  announce that the hugely successful film Star Wars will open at  the Twilight Theatre on Boxing  Day for a ten-day run.  Red Cross  The Red Cross is again campaigning for funds and in our  appeal to the public we would  like to remind everyone of some  ofthe services given to the community by the Red Cross.  Firstly, the blood donations  collected and made available to  our hospital. This is indeed the  lifeline for all hospitals. Here in  this district we received 397 units  of blood during the last year,  valued at $14,500. Without blood  donations to the Red Cross where  would we be?  Then the Red Cross gives  emergency help to people suffering loss by fire or other disasters. In this district a dozen such  cases were given assistance in  the last year.  In the summertime Red Cross  puts on water safety campaigns  and offers training programs.  Over 200 people were enrolled  in this healthy and useful effort  in this district.  Red Cross is a partner in the  "United Way". In this district,  however, a United Way campaign  /M/g  Winter Schedule  Effective:  Oct. 30th-Feb. 11th  is not being conducted. Therefore the local members of the  Red Cross Society will offer an  opportunity for local people to  assist in this worthy effort.  There will be envelopes delivered  by mail or otherwise to every  household if possible, and recipients can then without any  more pressure return these  envelopes to the designated  address with the donation they  wish. Money-orders. Chargex.  Masterchargc or Cheque can be  used. Piggy bank cans are  placed in business places where  you can unload your spare  change. So please help us to  help you!

It's funny, outrageous, bleakly jovial and kind of  blue, the way all of his other good  novels are, and although this one  shows signs of wear, with crow's  feet around the full stops, receding punch-lines, and varicose  verbs, Vonnegut may be getting  paunchy but he's still capable of  knocking off some of the most  surprising prose ofthe seventies.  He writes in short, simple sentences, as does Richard Brautigan, and his books, mostly, are  short and simple as well. Someone gave me Slaughterhouse  Five to read about seven years  ago; It was great, and extremely  encouraging, so I promptly got  hold of as many of his other  books as well,' and I think I must  have read all of them. Slaughterhouse Five was the best, although  I enjoyed Breakfast of Champions  too, and his other more recent  one, Wampeters, Foma and  Grandfalloons.  Slapstick is the diary of an old  man, the last president of the  United States- Dr. Wilbur Daf-  fodil-11 Swain. He lives in the  bombed-out ruins of the Empire  State Building. After you've  said that much about the book,  the rest of it becomes rather  complicated. The time it takes  place in is the near future, and  there have been, to say the least,  some rather bizarre developments. The Chinese, for example, have learned to miniaturize  themselves and have established  a colony on Mars. Everyone in  the U.S. has succumbed to the  "Green Death", which is caused  by inhaling the miniature Chinese  who are a sort of virus! Those  still alive exist in a feudal state,  ruled over by people like the King  of Michigan, or his arch-enemy,  the Duke of Oklahoma.  President Wilbur, who got himself elected despite the fact he  was a wealthy, ill-favoured  freaky giant, ran on a ticket with  the slogan: "Lonesome No  More". It was his contention  (and VonnegutV as well), that  the main problem confronting all  Americans was that they were  lonely. The old family system  had clearly fallen apart, and to  remedy this, the government  would assign everyone a new  middle name. Thus, everyone  would then have approximately  forty   thousand   new   relatives-  iTED HUME;  i SERVICES I  AUTHORIZED  Esso  !    Home   j  : ;  j Equipment;  ���Dealer   j  S '?'

Vonnegut writes in such a slick  manner that his short paragraphs almost exist independently of each other. They're full of  jokes, and short one-liners, and  a black humour that always stays  just this side of total cynicism.  He rounds things with repeated  phrases- in Slaughterhouse  Five the phrase was: "And so  it goes". In Slapstick, it's  "Hi ho". He writes: "It is a  thing I often say these days: Hi  ho. It is a kind of senile hiccup.  I have lived too long. Hi ho."  Yet Vonnegut can tear off some  delightful sentences, and his juxtaposition of images is often quite  funny.. In Chapter 28 he writes:  "The way Mother described  Heaven, it sounded like a golf  course in Hawaii, with manicured  fairways and greens running  down to a lukewarm ocean."  In Chapter 40, a widow in  Urbana, Illinois, describes  Heaven differently, having  talked to her husband in the  great beyond. She says he calls  it "The Turkey Farm".  This sort of thing is exactly.  how Vonnegut writes- he takes  the common images of our time  and twists them into comic  absurdity. The characters here,  for example, all have the names  of wealthy American families-  the Mellons, Motts and Rockefellers, and there is a lovely satisfaction in seeing such names  tacked onto a wild string of  demented crazies. Even the presidency is not exempt. (Actually,  there seems to be a minor genre  getting started these days, writing about the president as a  maundering, philandering oaf,  and Wilbur Daffodil-11 Swain,  aside from being a physical  freak, has been divorced twice,  committed incest with his twin  sister, and spent.the last forty  years wacked out on "tri-benzo-  Deportamil", a drug used in th<  treatment of "Tourette's Disease  whose sufferers involuntarily  spoke obscenities and made insulting gestures no matter where  they were."  The plot here isn't as thick as  the insanity.   Vonnegut seems to  enjoy himself immensely, making  up outrageous situations, destroying countries, and, indeed,  tampering with anything that  comes' to mind, including the  force of gravity, which is heavier  one day than it is the next. On a  heavy day, everyone has to crawl  around. On a light day, all the  men get erections. But again,  Vonnegut pulls it out of the fire  with the occasional gem-like  reflection. When Wilbur goes to  see the King of Michigan at his  summer palace on Lake Man-  xinkuckee, he reflects: "Aside  from battles, the history of nations seemed to consist of nothing  but powerless old poops like  myself, heavily medicated and  vaguely beloved in the long  ago, coming to kiss the boots of  young psychopaths." Exactly.  All this would be simple frivolity if Vonnegut's madness  weren't so very touching. He  chooses to laugh at the world,  to mess around with all the sacred  images and to joke continually  because the only other alternative is suicide. You have to let  go of your preconceptions when  you read Vonnegutr it's always a  pretty wild ride. Slapstick  is a lot like the joke Wilbur's  twin sister tells him in the middle  of the book. "The joke had to do  with a woman who was wildly  responsive during sexual intercourse. In the joke, the woman  warned a stranger who was  beginning to make love to her:  'Keep your hat on, Buster.

Great credit is due  to all who took part in it.

Special thanks go to the ladies  who handled the tables, also  those who waited on tables and  worked in the kitchen, to John  Holloway, Eiver Jorgensen and  Karl Fraser who looked after  the plants. You all did a wonder  ful job and please accept my  heartfelt thanks.  It is with a heavy heart that  1 have to report that Flo Chaster  has lost her sister. Our sincere  condolences go out to Flo and her  family in this, their time of  sorrow. If her sister was anything like Flo she will be greatly  missed as Flo is one of our most  energetic members.

So be sure  and do your part to make Harmony #38 number One on the  Sunshine Coast.  I have received a letter. from  the Royal Canadian Legion  Branch #109 for a representation  ofthe O.A.P. to attend the November 11th Remembrance Day.  This I have acknowledged and I  hope to get someone to go with  me as representatives from the  branch. Anyone wishing to  attend is welcome to do so, so  let us have a good representation  from Harmony #38.  I don't know how much longer  I will be writing this column as  I have stated previously, that I  want to take a rest, but I will  continue to write it until my term  as your president expires, after  that I don't know for sure if  someone else wishes to take it  over, as this is a good way of  communicating with all branch  members and let them know what  is going on. 1 got an early start  on this report, it is only 8:00 a.m.  but 1 want to get some of it done  before I go over to the hall to  get ready for tonight's Bingo  as that will take quite a bit of  time. Thursday is always a  busy day for me, getting things  prepared for the social evening.  I was glad to see Helen Strange  and Leo Daoust up and around  again. Welcome back, folks. It  is good to see you again after  your illness. Hope you are both  on the way to a speedy recovery.  I am pleased to say that our  treasurer Irene Bushfield is back  from Calgary. As you know, I  reported in my last issue, that  Irene and Louise Barnes were  going there for a few days, and  I am sure that Calgary will never  get back to normal for a long time  to come. Irene said they had a  wonderful time, beautiful weather until they were coming back  through Manning Park and it  started snowing, so Irene trod a  little heavier on the gas and made  it O.K. Glad to see you back  Irene. Ed and Molly Connor are  away to California on business  so we will be short of Ed tonight  but we will struggle through I  hope.

So here goes  with a Remembrance Day story  that I hope you will always remember, as I from personal  experience can never forget.  Let me set the stage, the backdrop, the locale. Winters in  Poland and Russia are no milder  than the worst winters in Canada.  December 1944 until March 1945  small open boat, I don't think I  would feel safe on one of our  ferries in that kind of storm.  However, I never heard any reports of much damage to anything here. I guess we must live  right here on the Sunshine Coast.  I see a dusting of snow on the  mountains so winter cannot be  very far away. We have all  gone through quite a few winters  however, and I don't suppose  this one will make much difference. Well, I guess I have to  go as Kay has some shopping  to do and as I am the only chauffeur in our family I guess I will  have to go along.  Well here 1 am back again.  Our Bingo was a real success  as we had more people playing  and to make it more interesting  the lady who won the $100.00  jackpot, I am sorry I just can't  recall her name, but however,  she looked after me really well  while I was in St. Mary's Hospital, and I was certainly pleased  to see her win. So congratulations, I hope you come back  again.  Did you see Helen Raby's  picture in the Coast News in her  Halloween get-up for the Bazaar?  I wonder if she went out on Halloween trick or treating? What  got me was the startled look on  the ladies face whom she was  serving tea. Also Lil Perry was  concentrating on something and  looked very serious in the picture. However, everything went  off fine and we have no qualms  about the outcome.  Thanks to Dick (when do we  eat?) Oliver for helping out at  the Bingo last week. You did a  first class job. Dick, and 1 appreciate it. as it got me out of quite  a bind. What with Ed being  away and Leo not showing up.  you jumped in at the right time.  Thanks a million Dick. I hope I  will be able to return the favour  some time. Thanks also to Helen  Raby for helping Kay Lyle out  in the kitchen.  We had a little trouble with  condensation coming down from  the ceiling but it didn't seem to  bother the players very much and  I think everybody went home  happy, especially the winners.  Well I guess this is all the news  for the present. Don't forget the  carpet bowling on Wednesday, .  November 9th at 1:00 p.m..  Thursday night bingo at 8:00  p.m. November 10th and Branch  bingo and social hour on Monday  November 21st at 2:00 p.m.  In closing I apologize for not j  getting a column in last week's  edition but 1 was kept pretty  busy all week and didn't get  the time to write. Trusting you  will forgive me for being so  tardy, but it was one of those  things that crop up once in a  while over which we have no  control. So until the next time  I hope these few lines find you  all enjoying good health. I wish  I could say the same for myself  as I have not been feeling up to  par lately, but as the saying  goes. "Only the good die young"  and I hope I have a long way to  go yet in helping out people less  fortunate than myself. So until  next time, 1 will close now by  saying, "Adios Amigos."  was possibly the norst of those  five years spent by hundreds of  thousands of Allied P.O.W's  who at that time marched in  what has been called The Death  March. The Germans harassed  by the oncoming Russian army  drove prisoners from many parts  of Poland in sheer desperation.  We and they would not stop until  a reasonably safe refuge was  reached in the heart of Germany.  Many, so many, never saw Germany, for both prisoners and  German soldiers slept their last  sleep in snowdrifts by the road  we stumbled along like Napo-  ' leon 's great army of retreat.  Some of us had no intention  of going into Germany and so  singly, in pairs, or groups, men  escaped, or tried to, simply by  finding their way in to the Russian lines of advance. For myself I preferred the solo effort,  because this had proved most  effective on my other escape  ' attempts.  So my adventures, if they  could be called that, took me in  zig-zag directions from the Baltic  coastline of Poland, through  Upper Silesia and into the great  wheat belt of White Russia,  the Ukraine. Finally I got to the  Black Sea port of Odessa, but  my itinery was halted by a week's  stay in a baseline Russian Army  hospital. A suckling pig had  been eaten almost as is, meaning  a minimum of scorching to  prartially-cook it, by three starving Jugo-Slav officers and myself. Already starving when I  made it into the hospital the  front-line female-soldier nurses  (Soviets) cured my dysentry with  another week of starvation!  The hospital, besides treating  wounded Russians, had a large  number of escaped P.O.W's  filling that long narrow nursing  ward with their wounds, and  various ailments brought on by  degrees of collapse.  On the day of my release from  that hospital the extremely considerate young doctor drew me  aside, and some others who  were leaving also that day.  and asked us to do him a special  favour. He spoke in German.  Here it is in English: "I want to  ask you if you will come with me  to visit a comrade who is in a  room by himself, and when you  see him, please do not look or  act shocked. He is a very brave  young man and I want you to  cheer him up. Tell him there is  hope for him that he will go home  some day, but that he will have to  wait until we can make him well  enough to travel.''  The doctor looked searchingly  into our faces and continued,  "You see, he can not go with  you today because he has gangrene in his hands and feet, nor  will he walk out of here, if at all  he goes he will have to be carried  to an airplane. Now here he is  in this room, please, act like  soldiers and not women for. his  sake. Will you?" We nodded.  As soon as that door was  opened the sweetish sourish  odour of gangrene hit us. It was  well we had been prepared by  the kind doctor.    A happy grin  shone on the young lad's face who  welcomed us from his simple  hospital cot. Both hands swathed  in bandages; both feet stuck out  at the bottom of the bed. Better  I should say, what had been  hands, and what had been feet.  I, the oldest of the group to  visit him had been chosen by the  others to make conversation.  After a few soldierly greetings  between us mostly in mock  banter, he made it easy for us  by giving us a rundown of his  hospital history.  "First the doctor took off  both big toes, then he had to  come back for the thumbs, but the  gangrene couldn't be stopped so  he just had to keep operating.  He's a good doctor. Don't you  think so, lads?" He seemed  more concerned that we give  the doctor a good report than  about his own condition. And  his voice rang with optimism  and cheer. I just couldn't believe it. Here was a lad, not  much over twenty, and he was  putting on a damned good show  of cheering us up. This I think  shook me up more than anything  after we left him. But back to  his story as I gleaned it from  him.  "You were all on that march  in all that cold and snow?" We  nodded dumbly to his query.  "Well my pal and I came across  one of our lads whimpering in  a deep snowdrift one of those  dark nights. This lad was suffering from frostbite, so I tried and  tried to rub the frostbite out  with that frozen snow. Worked  on him for hours, it must have  been. So I finally landed here  with frozen feet and hands myself."  No explanation how he got to  the hospital, how he must have  suffered, and I'll bet without a  whimper, all those weeks of  tortuous stumbling with feet  that were not really feet and  hands that were blobs of frozen  flesh.  We took his home address  and gave it to a wounded American air-officer who was flying  home that day. And said our  goodbyes the best way we could.  Believe me it was hard to say  goodbye to him, for the doctor  had told us that next day an  operation would leave the lad  with leg stumps, and stumps  where hands had been. "And  I do not know for sure if that  wi'.l stop the gangrene's progress." the doctor said sadly.  We left feeling like criminals.  Here we were hale and hearty,  albeit hungry, because we had  looked after Number One. Ourselves. While there in that room  lay a brave lad who'd taken time  off on that hellish march of 1945  to give what help he could to  another soldier. That my friends  is what sacrifice is all about.  Like it says in John's Gospel:  "Greater love hath no man than  this that a man lay down his  life for his friends.''  We who call ourselves Christians, either in or out of churches,  would we be prepared to do as  much? Or, does it mean anything to us at all?

These were followed  by scenes from the Rogers Pass:  Lake Louise; Johnsons Canyon  and the Banff-Jasper Highway  taken by Tom Walton.

Come cry  with me  If you have questions about life  in general or sex in particular,  write  Ann   Napier,   C/O   Coast  News, Box 460, Gibsons.  Dear Ann:  I'm a young married woman  and my husband and 1 are financially comfortable. After being  out of sorts with each other off  and on the first two years, we  are now on a good plateau in our  marriage. During the "rocky"  period I had an affair with a  musician. It was exciting at the  time but soon faded. My question  is shall I tell my husband and  ruin the space we're now in?  Torn  Dear Torn:  If you didn't tell him then,  why tell him now? It's in the past  and 1 can't see what can be  gained by true confessions, but  to relieve your guilty feelings  and lay the misery on your  partner. 1 think it best to forget  it. Make it up to him with little  attentions and think how you'd  feel later - before you act so  rashly again. The past is gone  forever. The future is yet to  come. The only reality is now.  Make it good.  Dear Ann:  I have this attractive friend of  whom I am very fond. Lately  her conversation is so concerned  with her boy friend's ideas and  opinions such as "Bill says this is.  so" "Bill says do it this way and  ithat way" and "Bill says on and  on." How can I tell her I like  her opinions and ideas?  Disgruntled  Dear Disgruntled:  That's a familiar attitude of  the insecure person. They feel  what they have to say does not  have as much impact as quoting  their partner. Many married  women do this - what the husband  says is quoted, what system he  uses is the best. It reflects lack  of confidence and a "kiss-up"  attitude. Women's Lib would  frown on this. There7s little you  can do. She would hate criticism  so grin and bear it. She may  get tired of being an echo.  Winner  A Gibsons student was among  the scholarship winners announced at ihe convocation ceremonies  of the Certified General Accountants' Association ot* B.C. held in  Vancouver on Saturday. October  22nd.  R. Bruce Cranston of Marlene  Road was awarded a $200 Public  Practice scholarship by the association as the student achieving  the highest examination mark in  Auditing.  Mr. Cranston is employed by  Canadian Forest Products in  Port Mellon.  The association gives Public  Practice Awards each year to  students who obtain the highest  examination mark in Taxation  and Auditing.  CGA certification requires five  years of study. There are 2.550  students enrolled in this program  in B.C.  The convocation ceremonies  marked graduation for 117  students.  Halloween was very much in  evidence on October 31st when  Mrs. Bessie Rowberry brought  the traditional pumpkin, table  covers and jelly beans. The local  school students had the walls  decorated for their evening  celebration which gave the  spooky atmosphere it required.  The challenge to provide the  last line for the recent Limerick  brought no entries. Have we  no poets to claim the title of  Poet Lauratc of the Elphinstone  New Horizons? We regret that  Bessie Clark and Grace Cummings arc on the sick list. We  wish them a speedy recovery.  Do not let the renovations at  the community hall deter you  from attending. We all look  forward to the day when the  "last spike" is driven and things  get back to normal.

Local man, Jack Warne, speaking on behalf of the petitioners,  *JL  Larry Girard and Dave Kydd are shown at work  in the old Pazco fibreglassing building.  and sculptor Dave Kydd were  given permission to make use of  the other part of the building to  make Girard's Gibsons All-Night-  er stoves. At the time council  said that they were anxious to allow owner of the building, Brian  Pazdzerski, opportunity to realize  some revenue from his property.  Kydd and Girard agreed with  council subsequently that they  would take steps to soundproof  their workshop so that noise of  their grinding of metal would riot  disturb the neighbours. Accordingly they gyp-rocked the  walls in several layers for soundproofing and fire protection.  Last week" council lifted the-  business licences of " the two  businesses because of public  complaints they claim to have  received. So far the Coast News  has only been able to locate two  sources of complaint and one of  those concerns the use of the lane  leading to the building by a half-  ton truck.  In response to the petitions  against the loss of the business  licences. Alderman Metzler  said "We couldn't rezone it to  Marine as we had wished because  the property wasn't larger enough." Girard pointed out that  there are virtually no businesses  anywhere on the Sunshine Coast  which have 20 thousand square  feet of space, as the council apparently was requiring in this  case.  Alderman Metcalfe said that  the council was in favour of creating local employment and hoped  to see the area rezoned either for  marine or other zoning. "We  gave a permit for the boat repair works and then expanded it  tq include the Gibsons All-  Nighter Stoves, but we haye had  public complaints against the  rezoning. How can we in our  hearts justify putting aside  our  said, "Laws are made for people.  Non-conforming use is common  throughout the Sunshine Coast."  Mayor Larry Labonte said that  the zoning for the property had  somehow been lost but pointed  out that the building had been  used for commercial purposes for  the past twenty-eight years. The  impasse at Tuesday night's  meeting was broken by Alderman  Metzler's suggestion that a  thirty-day extension should be  allowed so that the situation  could be looked at again..  In other council businesses, it  was learned that the application of Wendy-Lou Milner to be  allowed to operate a crafts store  in the little building dn the west  side of School Road directly behind Simpson Sears had been  turned down. The explanation  given by council was the area in  some months time was scheduled  to be 'upgraded for a parking lot'.  Council did seem to look with  favour, however, upon a request  from Suncoast Dispatchers to  be allowed to use the Dogwood  Cafe as a late-night waiting-  room facility and asked the  manager, Neil McLardy to submit  a request in writing.

The idea has fired up considerable interest in the community  amongst locals with an eye for the future.  One idea which has been circulating in the past week is that  since the marina has been shelved, the municipality has  holdings in Gibsons Bay which will lie dormant, possibly for  several years. Why not put the land to use in what could be  a major attraction for the area as well as providing employment  for some twenty people?  An area which seems to fit the bill is the land adjacent to  the boat launching ramp at Prowse Road. Lots 1, 2, 3, and 4  are on the waterfront, with lots 44 and 45 directly behind.  This would be an ideal spot and it is hoped that the municipality  will give some thought to the idea of leasing it to Black Eyes  Ltd.  A meeting will be held at the Gibsons Legion on November  18th and 19th where the public will have a chance to familiarize  themselves with the project.  Buffet lunch  Want a change of atmosphere?

"Since moving to Sechelt,"  says Hall, "my goal has been to  enter the develop-design-con-  struct field and to use my remaining energy to bolster labour-intensive secondary industry for the  Sunshine Coast." He feels that  these efforts have been seriously hampered by a cash shortage  and by government red tape but  says that he is slowly converting  his Vancouver interests to the  Sechelt area, "our final resting  place". "Commencing in January, 1978", says Hall, "my business time and interests will  majorically be on the Sunshine  Coast."  On local government, Hall says  that he would see the Community  Plans as a guide of the people's  wishes - not as a law to control  their wishes and ambitions; he  would preserve and enhance the  simplicity of our surroundings by  a controlled growth programme;  he would pressure Victoria to give  this area the necessary service assistance to create employment.

The Elphinstone Wanderers  defeated a chippy Sud American  team 2-1 this Sunday in Mainland soccer action. Graham  Chapman scored the Wanderers'  first goal on a penalty shot early  in the game after he was pulled  down on a breakaway. The  referee lost control of the game,  which looked more like the last  Gibsons rugby battle than your  everyday soccer game. Five  yellow cards and one red card  were handed out before the final  whistle.  The best goal of the year was  scored on a diving header by Ken  Bland on a superb cross by  Duncan Campbell. Bland played  his best game of the year. Other  players that stood out were Duncan Campbell and "the mouth".  Dan Baker.  This weekend the Wanderers  play their first game in Provincial  cup action. Last year, the home  team made it through several  rounds before they met 1st  Division Vancouver Pegasus at  Empire Stadium. Until half time  the Wanderers gave the Pegasus  team a bad time, as they opened  the scoring on a brilliant shot by  left winger Steve Miles and held  the Vancouver team at bay.  Meanwhile, in other soccer  action, the Wanderers' Juvenile  team continued winning as they  dropped West Van Royals 2-1  on a rain soaked muddy pitch.  Corry Mottishaw and Robbie  Jonas scored for the Juveniles  early in the first half. Right half.  Mark Jacobs and right fullback.  Mark Boothroyd were outstanding on defense while the whole  forward line shone on offence.  Coach. Doug Elson, commended the team as being great  'mudders'.  So far. the Juveniles have four  wins, one loss and one tie.  Their next game is at Langdale  this Sunday at 1200 P.M.  nolds 307-730. Phuntastique:  Hazel Skytte 239-694, Vic Marteddu 254-643.

To put "the move" on an opponent, especially the goalie,  creates the thrill insurmountable.  I happened upon Roy the day  his dad, Roy Sr., arrived for a  few day's visit from Toronto.  So Roy Jr. suggested we go  over and meet his father. It  wasn't long before Roy Sr. filled  in the gaps while Roy (who is  25) talked about his hockey  career. For example the fact  that during his dozen odd years  playing in the Richmond Hill  organization near Toronto,  Roy was selected to the all star  team each and every year. Well,  that's the sort of thing parents  are likely to add when proud,  modest hockey-player sons want  those sort of details played  down.  It seems McBrien and hockey  went through a six year separation upon completion of his  one and only junior year with  the Richmond Hill Rams, an  Ontario Junior B club. During  that last single season someone in the Toronto Marlborough's  organization saw the naturally  gifted McBrien who was given  a three-game tryout. - -When he  failed to make the Marlboroughs,  he left hockey.

"It was the biggest personal  thrill to know I could come  back from so many years away  from the game." At 5' 11", the  165 lb. right winger likes the slot  position while in the attacking  zone, but also greatly appeciates  the importance of defensive play.  For the first time Roy is a team  player, going both ways, there  being no one star on the team.  "The Gales' coaching staff  has taught me the value of team  effort. Never before.have I been  playing as part of a team. I  was always an individual on a  team."  A resident of the Gibsons area  for three years now, Roy sees  the people as being an integral  reason for choosing the Sunshine Coast for his home. He  also appreciates the rural lifestyle which allows him time to  do the thing he likes best, scoring  goals. Roy also enjoys the odd  game of billiards or golf. His  friendly Dobcrman Pnscher.  Chimpi |s..a constant companion.  Rojy^s'?interests go beyond the-r  hockey^fink to a place where he  sees himself dealing with young  people. With sports as a common  background, Roy's previous experience gives him the self-  confidence to want to be educated in a field concentrated in  human relations and he welcomes the challenge just as he  awaits stronger hockey competition this season with the Gales.

This past  weekend's visitors. Vancouver-  Hastings Sr. Reps., is a team just  brought together this past week.  To be sure this team possesses  talented hockey players which  only makes the Gales organization that much more impressive. One-sided games just  make for dull entertainment  after too long.  The goaltending duo of  Darcy Blake and Sam Casey have  been rather miserly thus far. In  6 games they have allowed bui  nine goals. A strong defensive  corp certainly helps. Messer.s  Orpen.

That's how the score  stood after 20 minutes.  Rick Ion, playing back on defense this game, put the Gales  ahead at the 6:21 mark of the  second period. Stu Orpen,  playing a fine game defensively,  added another tally before Ion  picked up his second of the night  and the eventual winner on a  fine pass from Robbie Williams  who is generally known for his defensive role on left wing, along  with Sean Van Strepen at centre.  Both Williams and Van Strepen  proved their worth, killing off  10 penalties, as compared to  Vancouver's 4 misdemeanors.  Perry Wray rounded out second  period scoring at 4-2 when he  beat Gales' goalie Darcy Blake  on one of the few testy shots  aimed at the bearded netminder  all night.  In the third period, action belonged to the Gales. McBrien  put one behind Vancouver goalie  Ben Poison at the:58 second mark  on a pass from Mike Sutherland  whose relentless rushes and subsequent cannonating slap shots  kept the Vancouver side off balance all night.

Player Rick Ion stated it was  the most childish thing he's  witnessed in 18 years of hockey.  His teammate Dave Mewhort  said, "It's plain unsportsmanlike. They knew they were out  classed and they didn't want to  be humiliated again. They used  the excuse that last night's game  was chippy to bow out gracefully."  In the opinion of this reporter  the game played Saturday night  was the Gales' best performance  at home. The Vancouver team  showed they could skate with  the Gales through two periods  which under normal circumstances would encourage the return  match. 1 guess the Reps had  troubles sleeping and were too  tired to give it their all. which  is at least what would have been  required to make a game of it.  In future all opposing teams  will be either A. A.M. A. or  C.A.H.A. sanctioned teams  which means conduct similiar  to the Reps would mean fines  and   suspension.

Anyone  on   the   Sun-  This is a team that has played  together in the most part for  almost five years. Most of the  players are in grade twelve,  in fact only two girls will be  returning next year.  The team has played well over  the years; as juniors they won  their own tournament two years  running. Last year, the team,  with all except one in the first  year of senior play, finished  fourth at the B.C. Championships in Qualicum Beach.  This year, as host team, they  automatically qualified for the  provincial finals November 17th,  18th and 19th. But they have  played well - first in the Vancouver Technical School Tournament, out of five teams, and first  in the U.B.C. Tournament out of  35 teams:  Ten players make up the team:  Colleen Hoops: Co-captain of  the team, she is 17 and one of  the shortest players on a team  that is generally quite short -  5' 1". Collen is a sparkplug on  the team, leading by her hustling  example. She is a setter and has -  played volleyball on school teams  over the last five years, since  grade 8. She has probably the  highest vertical jump of any of  the team and is an excellent  hitter. In addition Colleen is an  A student and does well in Math  and Science. Colleen had her  start in volleyball with the  Beachcombers.  Laura Campbell: Co-captain in  her second and final year of  senior volleyball. Laura is in  grade 12, is 17 years old and  5' 7" and the best hitter, on the  team. Over the past summer  Laura attended volleyball camp  at Williams Lake and in the last  month has learned to really  hammer the ball. At the UBC  Tournament she was selected a  member of the all star team and  was named most valuable player  for the tournament. By her  leadership and enthusiasm on  the floor. Laura is the sparkplug  of the team. Laura too had her  start on the Beachcombers volleyball team with Ian Jacob.  Deanna Paul: Another Hopkins  Landing player is in her 2nd year  shine Coast is welcome, whether  or not you have curled before.  We are a young club with many  beginners every ygar-so... come--  out and meet some of the friendliest people on the coast!  Once again, don't forget the  general meeting on November  29th. Important rule changes  will be discussed at that time.  steep hills; through foliage, moss  covered rocks and ending, in a  deep creek; which was where I  ended up. Like most B.C. trials  there were few spectators (not  few enough when 1 sat down in  that cold creek).  Of six local riders, three rode  well enough to trophy. Though it  didn't rain during the trials  event, a rain the night before  made most sections more difficult. Which in return made  winning much more rewarding  for Eric Stenberg of Powell  River who took 2nd Junior,  Evan Gray of Coast Cycle who  took 2nd Senior and his brother  Mark who captured 1st Expert.  Tony Evans of Sechelt missed a  trophy in the Junior class only  by a slim margin.  of senior volleyball. Deanna is  16 in grade 12 and is 5' 2" in  height. "Dee" as everybody  calls her, has a super attitude.  She works harder than anyone  else in practice and her playing  has improved steadily over the  year. Dee is an especially good  defensive player and often comes  through with a surprisingly hard  spike. Dee, too, spent part of  the summer at volleyball camp  and as well is a product of the  Beachcombers volleyball team.  Lorna Boyd: The tallest of the  players at 5' 9", Lorna is in grade  12, and 17 years old. Lorna is  a good hitter - spiker to those of  you who don't know what hitter  means. As well she has excellent  defensive skills. Lorna came into  her own during the B.C.'s last  year. She too spent part of the  summer at volleyball camp and  has developed a hammering  spike. Lorna has been with the  girls since grade 8 and rumor  has it that she plays volleyball  in her backyard all year round.  Maureen Forsyth: One of two  "rookies" on the team and a  very valuable player. Maureen is  in grade 11, 5' 5" and is 16 years  old. In our system Maureen is  a setter, subbing in for Ingrid or  Colleen. She is a good hitter  with good volleyball skills in  serving and defence. Maureen  is a product of the Beachcombers  volleyball team and this will be  her first trip to the B.C. Championships.  Sigrid Petersen: Grade 12.  5' 3", 17 years old and probably  the most consistent player over  the past two years. Sigrid  started volleyball in grade 7 on  the Beachcomber team and joined  the senior team in grade 10.  "Siggy". as she is known to  the rest of the team, is a good  spiker and an excellent defensive  player. Sigrid is also a consistent  server and rarely puts the ball  into the net.  Ingrid Petersen: Twin No.  2.  She too is in grade 12. 17 years ;  of age and 5' 1". Ingrid followed  the  same  route  as  her  twin   - ~  through Beachcombers volleyball to the senior team. Ingrid  is a setter in our system which  utilizes two setters. She is one  of the best servers on the team  and consistently keeps the ball  in play. Ingrid too spent part  of the summer in volleyball camp  at Williams Lake.  Becky McKinnon: Grade 12,  17 years old and 5' 6" Becky is  the shy one on the team. Becky  has played with these girls since  grade 8. She has excellent defensive skills and also taps in  a spike or two per game. Becky  is the other half of the Boyd or  McKinnon duo who practise  volleyball year round out Veteran  Rd. way. You'll also find Becky  at Yoshis' on the weekend.  Denise Hart: 16 years old,  5' 6" and in grade 11, she is the  other rookie on the squad. Denise  has a lot of promise - an excellent  vertical jump and a good spike,  the future looks good for Denise.  One of the biggest requirements  for a good hitter is to have the  ability to jump and Denise does  this as well as any other player  on the squad. In addition she  is one of the most cheerful  characters on a team full of  characters.  Lynne Wheeler: Last, but certainly not least, another old  timer who started with the Beachcombers. Lynne is in grade 12,  17 years of age and about 5' 5".  Lynne has a lot of hustle and  desire and of all the players has  most improved her skills in setting and spiking. Lynne has  played with the girls since grade 8  and this is her second trip to the  B.C.'s Lynne's chatter and  get-up-and-go provides a spark  when the players are flat.  The B.C. Finals.are on November   17.   18.   and   19.     Elphie's  games are as follows:  Thursday 4:30p.m.. 8:30 p.m.  Friday   8:30   a.m.,   12:30   p.m..  3:30. 5:30 and 7:30.

The Elphinstone Raiders  played to a 4-2 win against the  Sechelt Redskins on Sunday in a  fast-moving game at Sechelt  Reserve. The forward line again  proved to be a strong unit with  two goals coming from Ted  Leaver and Bill Sneddon and  Dave Davies each picking up  one. In the second half the  Raiders had the wind against  them, putting more pressure  on the defence, which proved capable of holding the Redskins out.  This was the Raiders' first  game under new coach Bob  Jones-Parry. Kurt Scharf is now  the assistant coach, who also  plays with the team. Next game  is at noon Saturday.

M. B. Phelan  Returning Officer Pender  by Pender Harbour & District  Ratepayers Association Publicity  Committee.  ] Over the next week you will  probably be reading about the  results.of the planning questionnaire circulated recently in the  Pender Harbour area by the  Ratepayers Association.  : .The questionnaire has been  replied to by about 30% of the  pfeople it was sent to, which is  well above average for a mailed  questionnaire, so we are calling  it;a success. Wherever the people  Have given a clear verdict on  planning issues they can expect  the Ratepayers Association to  reflect this in forming policy.  ��� The Ratepayers are proud of  their questionnaire, just as they  aVe proud of being the only community association on the Sunshine Coast to publish a regular  weekly column on community  affairs. Not that we think we are  any threat to Mr. Gallup or Mr.  Fotherihgham - what we take  pride in is our policy - the policy  of the Ratepayers Association  since its inception ten years  ago - that local government must  be taken to the people. There are  many community associations in  this district, and many different  policies - for development, a-  gainst development, but we feel  we can safely say no other group  has so energetically pursued a  course of taking policy to the  community at large and letting  the people shape it as the Pender  Harbour and District Ratepayers  Association/  r-: - -     ��� -fr & -si-  Speaking of Ratepayers policy,  the local election campaign has  brought out the usual hardworking little gang of rumour  spinners who for lack of any  honest reason to criticize Ratepayer-backed Regional District  candidate Joe Harrison have  been telling people the Ratepayers want to drive industry  away, harass development, rob  Our children of jobs and otherwise "stop progress."  No one familiar with the history of the Ratepayers Associa- ,  tion is likely to believe this,  but for the benefit of anyone who  just tuned in, the rumour is  totally baseless. The Ratepayer  Association was originally founded in order to fight Regional  District zoning which would have  Closed the area off to any industry  except tourism and recreation.  The association has recently been  quite vocal in. its opposition to  the community plan because of  its restrictivehess towards anything but the recreational/residential industries. The Ratepayers   Association   has   always  ratepayers  favoured keeping tfie area open  to as many and as varied income-  producing activities as possible.  The questionnaire has proved  that the overwhelming majority  of area residents oppose the ban  on backyard industry now in  effect over Francis Peninsula  and many parts of the Harbour,  and the association will naturally  take its direction from the people  in this matter as they have done  in the past.  The point is, no one has to  worry about the... Ratepayers  Association going off down some  path of its own without regard  for the wishes of the community,  because the way it is set up  this couldn't happen. Special  interest groups like the Property  Owners Association or the Social  Credit Club can do this with  impunity because they have never  pledged themselves to be responsible to the expressed wish  of the area's people in the way  the Ratepayers Association has.  So the next time you hear  anyone laying down a line about  the Ratepayers or any candidate  pledged to a Ratepayer program  being "against everything"  tell them the Ratepayers oppose  only what the people instruct  them to oppose. The chances  are you'll find yourself in conversation either with someone  who has been misinformed or  else a disgruntled fast-buck  artist whose nose is out of joint  because . the Ratepayers spoke  out against some pre-fab Babylon  like the one recently proposed at  Canoe Pass. Developments like  that, which are built with outside money by outside contractors and leave the area with a  basketful of expensive service  problems, do nothing to buoy the  local economy or provide jobs.  ���fr    -fr    -fr  The 1977 Regional election  marks the first time there has  been a three-way race for the  director's chair in Area 'A'.  Besides Harrison and incumbent  Jack Paterson, both of whom are  quite well known, papers have  been filed by Duncan Sim. who  is hardly known at all although he  claims to have lived in the area  since 1974. Little is known of  Mr. Sim's position except that he  is a close neighbour and friend  of Mrs. Cathy McQuitty. who  usually backs strongly pro-development candidates. Mr. Sim  is reported to favour municipal  government for Pender Harbour  and spoke at a Ratepayer meeting  criticizing opposition to the  Alaska tanker traffic.  More Letters  to the Editor  erty Owners  Editor:  I notice a lot of people griping  about their leaders being fence-  sitters these days. They shouldn't worry. Up here in Pender  Harbour we have one who can't  even sit on the fence - he keeps  falling off.  Jack Paterson has switched  sides on the Canoe Pass condominium deal so many times 1  don't think anyone could keep  track.  When it first came up last  spring he asked his local advisory  committee about it and they pulled him down on the "against"  side.of the fence.  Then he went back to talk to  the planners and the developers,  and it seems they got him over on  the "for" side of the fence,  because he came back to the  advisory committee and told  them their objections were  groundless.  At a public meeting October  16 he told a bunch of us he was  all for it, then after we spent a  couple of hours drumming on  his skull with arguments "against", we got him back on our side.  At the public hearing one  week later he was up on the  fence again. In fact he was very  upset that the papers had reported his brief visit to our side.  We have over a hundred people  there shaking that fence as hard/  as we could but somebody must  have nailed him down because  the most we could get him to  do was lean over our way a bit.  He would have liked to have  promised us the Regional Board  would stop the condominium but  the problem, he said, was those  other directors. No matter how  much he argued our case, those  other guys might vote for the  thing and overrule us all.  Well, then it went to the  Regional Board meeting last  week. We waited with bated  breath to see what these nefarious "other directors" would  do, but they were with us to a  man! They said, if the people  of Pender Harbour don't want  this project let's just kill it at  the first opportunity. ?->  There was-, only one director  who dragged his feet. And who  was that? You guessed it.  Paterson's last dying attempt  to  stop   the  condominium   case  7ZJJSSIFIEZ7 ADS  School District No. 46 (Sechelt) B.C.

His reasons were  very puzzling - he was in a sticky  legal situation, he said. He could  go to jail! He was afraid he had  somehow illegally influenced  the board by what he had "said  in the papers, but the board  itself didn't seem influenced in  the slightest. In fact one director said he didn't know yhat  Paterson was talking about!  What was he talking about?  It is common enough to hear  one politician threatening to  put another one in jail, but here  was the spectacle of a politician  threatening to throw himself  in jail!  At the same .time this very  strange mari is asking the people  of Area 'A' to re-elect him for  another two-year term.    ���  If Mr. Paterson wants to be  taken seriously by the voters I  think he's going to have to give  us a very clear and honest explanation of this strange behaviour of his - if he can.  Frank White  -Area     'A'     Property     Owner's  ; Association, Lloyd Davis.  A great many people, members  ��� of this Association and other residents as well, have seemed concerned that I have not entered into the distasteful pre-election  campaigning I have been reading  in this paper. The reason for this  barrage of garbage is very evident.  At the first meeting of the Planning Committee, of which I am  a member. Mr. Causey, Committee Chairman and also Chairman  of the Ratepayers, at that time,  suggested that we not involve our  respective organizations. Agreeing that this could do the community a dis-service. hinder the  Committee and discourage some  of its members, I respected that  request totally. Not so, the Ratepayers, through no fault of Mr.  Causey.  The Property Owners believe  they should attack the problem,  not the person, as happened in  public recently. When the Plan is  complete the Property Owners  will be for or against, according  to the wishes of the majority and  not influenced by the noise being  made over a single issue. Nor  do we intend to hamper the Com  mittee by continually criticizing  their efforts, ridiculing any of its  members or mis-quoting them.  For the benefit if those readers  that were totally misinformed by  the Tecent article entitled Pender  Settlement, the following article  is quoted from the second draft  of the Settlement Plan.  5.6.25 "Members of the Community should be encouraged to  consolidate private floats into  communal wharves".  Commercial floats were not even mentioned. I am against Communal wharves however as it  leaves the road open to abuse.  They could all become miniature  marinas without the benefit of  shore facilities, garbage disposal  or additional Commercial revenue  for the water Boards involved.  I.believe the whole article is a  biased report of that meeting as  the reading of the minutes at the  next meeting will prove.  I am a firm believer of freedom  of speech but not somebody  else's speech in my mouth.  Lloyd  Davis.   President  Coast News, November 8,1977.  Harbour  Clinic  13.
