November 19th was a sad day for incumbents in the local  elections held on the Sunshine Coast this year. In the municipal, regional and school board elections six sitting members  offered themselves for re-election and four of them were clearly  defeated. Don Douglas easily won re-election to the School  board and in Sechelt Morgan Thompson hung on to head off  four challengers as he finished in second place well behind  Frode Jorgensen for the Sechelt Village Council:  In Regional District Area 'A' Jack Paterson was badly beaten  as he finished well behind the other two candidates, Joe Harrison and Duncan Sim. President of the Pender Harbour Ratepayers' Harrison, was a clear winner. In Regional District  Area *C incumbent director Barry Pearson was, beaten convincingly by Charles Lee. But it was in the Gibsons Municipal  Election that the strongest evidence of voter rejection came.  Both Mayor Larry Labonte and Alderman Jim Metzler went  down to defeat as the Gibsons electorate indicated their displeasure with the council's proposed transfer of the Gibsons  water system to the Regional District by electing Lome Blain  as mayor and Jack Marshall and Larry Trainor as aldermen.  All three ofthe elected candidates in Gibsons had campaigned  specificially in opposition to the transfer of the administration  of the water system.  was expected,  topped  the   poll  with 341  votes.    The battle for  the second  aldermanic spot  on  council  was close with Trainor  edging    Terry    Amiel    by. just;  twenty-two votes.  Trainor polled  286 to Amiel's 264.    Incumbent  alderman  Jim   Metzler finished  last with 129 votes.

In the aldermanic race.  Jack   Marshall,   as  Gibsons   representative   on   the  Regional Board.  Sechelt  In the village of Sechelt all  four candidates who had expressed a desire to serve as the  representative on the Regional  Board went down to defeat  in the aldermanic elections  which means that the Sechelt  Council will appoint their representative to the regional body.  Frode Jorgensen was a clear  winner when the votes were  counted with 184 votes. Morgan  Thompson, the incumbent, came ���  second wth 115 votes, followed  by Henry Hall with 104 votes,  Olaf Wallander with 99 votes.  Ed Nicholson with 95 votes and  Adrian Stott with 86 votes.  Regional  In the three regional district  races the results in ail cases  were quite clear-cut. In Area E,  George Gibb won 260 of the 323  votes cast, with Ken Crosby  gaining only 63 votes. If there  was a surprise in the 1977 election results it may have come in  Area C where Charles Lee was  The Gibsons Volunteer Fire Department's alertness possibly saved Ken's Lucky Dollar store in  lower Gibsons from serious damage last week.  Store owner Bill Edney was lavish in praise of the  firemen who arrived within five minutes of the  alarm being given after a fire had started in a  wastepaper basket and shot rapidly up the wall  of the warehouse behind the produce counter.  "Another few minuses and the whole thing  might have gone," said Edney, "but those boys  were right oh the job."

As a result ofthe  planning meeting held the previous day council stated that the  business licences involved would  have to be cancelled effective the  end of the month. The legal  advisor for the council had recommended cancellation.  Long-time resident Walt  Nygren spoke to the meeting in  favour of retention of the business  licences. He asked that the  operators be allowed to continue  their work until such time as new  premises can be found. Nygren  pointed out that in the residential  area near the Post Office one of  the village aldermen. Alderman.  Hume, operated a business out  of his home. "Any small business  being developed in the area  should be encouraged," said  Nygren.  It was pointed out that the  reason Gibsons Council found  itself in. its present difficulties  was because it was trying to put  modern by-laws on an old building. The building has been there  longer than you by-laws. "Let's  have a little sense, a little reason  here;" said Dave Kydd who  builds the Gibsons All-Nighter  stove in conjunction with his  partner Larry Gjrard.  their business year. "If the  licence is cancelled it could mean  the end of their business,"  said Padzerski.

"We would gladly  move if we had anywhere to'move^,  to but there is-not a-place a";i��i_-,,^,#��2fc.  Iclause'becbrhes invalid  * Speaking on behalf of the can-:  cellation ofthe business licences,  Lyle Davie said, "this is a legal  matter and we intend to take  whatever steps it takes to get the  by-law enforced. We have already consulted a lawyer."  Local resident Jack Warne  again pointed out that given the  years that the building had been  in use the council was moving  against the business licences  on a mere technicality. "If  the by-law denies the use of the  building then the community  should compensate the owner,"  said Warne, "since use of his  building is being denied him for  'community benefit'."  The owner of the building in  question, Brian Padzerski, said  that he had been given insufficient time to prepare anything.  "I will be coming back to council  with a proposal," said Padzerski.  "The building has passed the  inspections of the Building  Inspector and the Fire Inspector  and it is sound. I sure can't  afford to destroy the building."  Padzerski also asked that his  renters should be given an  extension. He pointed out that  the makers of the Gibsons  All-Nighter stoves were at the  present time at the peak period of  Jy. employed in my building  -How can you turn them outside  It's not ethical, it's not human."  Padzerski maintained that it  would be fair to all parties if  an extension in the business  licences was granted.  Lyle Davie, speaking again - decided there and then  said that it was a straight legal man Stuart Metcalfe  question, y "Emotion means  nothing to me. The noise means a  lot to my parents. The devaluation, of the property matters to  the home-owners."   In response  Owner Padzerski said that he  was unaware that if the building  was vacant for thirtv7'riavs it  would be rezoned. -" I was not  so notified," he said. */  Despite a plea from Alderman  Metzler  that   nothing   final   be  .

Newcomer  Jock Smith put up a surprisingly  strong showing with 582 votes  largely drawn from Bowen Island.  Turn-out  The voters of Pender Harbour  and Sechelt turned out irr the  heaviest numbers. Fifty-five  percent of the eligible voters in  Pender Harbour cast their  ballots. In Sechelt. though the  number was down slightly from  the record of- 64:2%' who" voted  last year, there were still 54.2%  of the eligible votes cast. In  Gibsons while just under 40%  cast their ballots there were  nonetheless 582 votes cast as  opposed tojust 409 last year.  Gibsons  Gibsons.voters cast their ballots in Saturday's municipal elections. The turn-out in Gibsons  this year wis much heavier than last year with 589 ballots being cast compared to 409  in the Gibsons municipal elections last year. 7.  Police  Another construction site was  vandalised last week. On Monday 14th, at the corner of North  Road and Reid. a window valued  at $150 was smashed. The owner  will be stepping up security  measures.  On Wednesday. November 16  the scout hall in Gibsons was  broken into, nothing was reported  missing, but storage lockers  were broken into.

Sechelt Council  Police news of the week  U.S. money was taken from a  house on Beach Avenue in  Roberts Creek November Uth,  and Country Road Cycles was  broken into for the second time  A summer residence in Madeira Park was burgled on Saturday. November 12th, a VHF  radio, a floater jacket and a bottle  of whiskey were taken.  On Thursday November 17th,  a vehicle driven by David Farewell hit black ice on the highway  at Halfmoon Bay, it left the road  and hit a pole causing $2000  damage to the car.  The next move in the Neighbourhood Watch will be to post  4' x 8' signs at the entrances to  the various communities on the  Sunshine Coast. These signs,  the organizers hope, will act as  psychological crime deterents  to the transient population.  Three break-ins occurred in  the past week. A private home  in Madeira Park was robbed of  approximately $500 in goods on  the 8th of November. A Stardust clock radio  and  $5.00  in  this year, twelve sets of wheels  and four skate boards were taken.  A Richmond woman lost her  wallet somewhere between the  Golden City Restaurant and Davis  Bay. It contained identification  and $40.00 in cash.  At the Provincial Court held in  Sechelt on Wednesday, November 16th, Floyd Woods was  charged with a breach of probation. He was given three months  probation and a seven-day jail  sentence, to be served in Sechelt  on seven consecutive Sundays.  Wayne Dubois was fined  $250 for driving with no insurance.

Three bids were received for  consideration    by    the    Sechelt  Council at the.regular meeting  held last Wednesday, November  16th.     The  bids  were, for  the  drainage installation on Dolphin  and   Inlet.       Two   were   fairly  close; L & H Swanson's was for'  $18,300.;   Feidler   Brothers   for  $19,199.42, while the bid by John.  Loncaric   was   $36,076.       Two  members from the planning firm ���;  Dayton and Knight were present:  and they felt that the first two  bids were good.   They had estimated that, going by mainland  prices, it would be around $25 - ������  $30 thousand.     The third! bidv  they explained, probably included:  accommodation  for  the  out  of  town firm.  A decision on this was tabled  until the next meeting.    In the  interim, council will be conferring  with the Highways Department  for their plans in that area.  Haydn Killam. the owner of  Sechelt Building Supplies, had  not replied to a letter asking him  .to remove the lumber stored on  his property. It was felt that if  no reply was forthcoming before  the new year, it would not be  possible for council to enter into.  a land use contract with him.  Council will be in touch with  their solicitors in order to find a  solution to the problem.  The installation of the fire  alarm system at the ice arena may  have to be put off until the end  of the skating season. . This "j-  suggestion was made as the X[  installation would be difficult  while the rink is in use.  School custodian has narrow escape  Thirty-three year old Roland  Cleland was lucky to escape with  his life after inhaling chlorine  gas while working at Elphinstone  Secondary School.  Roland is one of the janitors at  the school. On Thursday last  week at about 6:30 P.M. he was  preparing a bucket of ammonia  for a cleaning job. The fumes  were powerful, so in order to  dampen them he added bleach.  When the two chemicals mixed  they combined to make Chlorine  gas. He was working in an en-  losed closet, and when he realized  what was happening he emptied  the bucket down a drain, but not  before he had taken a few  breaths.  At first he felt no ill effects  and carried on with his work. His  lunch break was at 7:30 P.M. At  7:00 P.M. he put a TV dinner in  the oven and, still not feeling any  the worse for his experience,  went back to his duties.  Another janitor, Brian Cooper,  noticed that -Roland had not  turned up for lunch but was not  unduly alarmed.  About 8:20 P.M. he noticed  the floor cleaner unattended in  the corridor and went to invests  gate. He found Roland sitting  on a chair in one of the classrooms.  Although he was groggy  lance. Within a few minutes the  ambulance arrived and rushed  Roland to St. Mary's in Sechelt.  His twenty-four hour stay in  hospital was understandably not  too clear, but Roland told the  Coast News that while he was  there he overheard a nurse  comment that two women in  B.C. had died from similar  accidents this year. He also  heard that the heart machine he  was hooked up to registered  that his heart had stopped  twice.     However,  at  the" time     !ej$S&0:fe- \Z:sm  The clear cold weather which has visited the Sunshine Coast has its definite advantages.

Today, Roland Cleland is back  at work'but he has a scorched  lung as a souvenir of his  experience.  Elphinstone School has been a  beehive of industry lately in  preparation for the upcoming  Sunshine Coast Community  Forum to be held at Elphie on  Sunday, November 27th from  noon until 5:00 p.m., followed by  a spaghetti dinner, prepared by  the French class and their mothers, proceeds from which will  be used for a trip for the class  to Quebec this summer.  The main theme of the forum  is "The World Symposium of  Humanity" held at Habitat in  1976. These video tapes not only  point out world environmental  problems, but give solutions that  can be used and augmented now.  Living here on the Sunshine  Coast one is inclined to become  apathetic about pollution. We've  still got drinkable water, full  bellies, a roof over our head,  and clear skies. The majority of  the world is not so fortunate.  The reality is, if we want these  "luxuries" to continue..then concern and action must come from  one and all.  Howe Sound, our major waterway,   is  also  a   major  garbage  dump, and is becoming highly  toxic because of this. "Don't  eat local shellfish" was something I was informed of seven  years ago when I first came  here, red tide was the reason  given, but as you'll find out from  Elspeth Armstrong, who will be  speaking on Howe Sound's environmental future. mercury  poisoning is closer to the reason  why we can't cat local shellfish.  ���   2.4-D sprayed on  our powcr-  ��� Please turn to Page Eight  Delivered to EVERY address on the Sunshine Coast every Tuesday 2.

Only in  two instances could the electoral races  be considered close. Morgan Thompson  retained his seat on the Sechelt Council  by a narrow eleven vote margin over  Henry Hall with four candidates including Hall and Thompson grouped within  twenty votes of each other. The other  close race was for the second Gibsons  aldermanic seat where Larry Trainor  narrowly edged Terry Amiel by a twenty  vote margin. Elsewhere the margins  of victory were clear-cut and considerable.  In the village of Gibsons the voter  backlash against the transfer of the  administration of the Gibsons water  system to the Regional District seemed  stronger than was anticipated by either  the incumbent council or this newspaper. Sitting Aldermen Hume and  Goddard, supporters of the transfer, can  thank their lucky stars that they were  not up for election this time. Mayor  Labonte and Alderman Metzler fell  victim to the voters' disapproval. Both  had served the village with integrity and  dedication and lost their positions solely  because- of the highly unpopular water  issue. It is particularly easy to sympathize with Mayor Larry Labonte who at  no time seemed to be totally wholehearted in his support of the water  transfer and who has accomplished much  for the village during his four years  In Sechelt, as observed by a columnist  on this page last week, the mood seemed  to be one of caution. The 'weel-kenned  faces' of Jorgensen and Thompson got  the votes despite the fact that the other  candidates generally ran more vigorous  campaigns. In particular Sechelt rejected  those candidates who seemed to seek the  a|0fef iMriic seat solely as a stepping stone  f6"/Wet^egionaL:B6ard^ 'All'four candi--:  dates wBo expressed'an interest in theu*'  regional seat were rejected and the  decision as to who the representative  for Sechelt will be left to the Sechelt  Council.    A cautious and conservative  voting   response   from   the   people   of  Sechelt.  If Sechelt was conservative, change  was the order of the day in the Regional  Board. Of the seven-man board only  Chairman Almond and Directors Hoemberg and Mulligan will be in their places  when the new board sits, though of  course there is still the possibility that  Morgan Thompson will be back if  appointed by the Sechelt Council. Gone  are Directors Ed Johnston, retired, and  Directors Paterson, Pearson and Representative Metzler, all soundly defeated  at the polls. Four new men who definitely  will take their places are Jack Marshall  from Gibsons, Charles Lee from Area C,  George Gibb from Area E, and Joe Harrison from Area B. It is possible that we  may soon hear a new clamour from the  defeated candidates and their supporters  for the curtailment, at least, of the  powers of the Regional Board. This  clamour will be heard locally but no  doubt will be directed towards Victoria  where we have a government that  seems bent on a centralization of power  and may be receptive. In any event the  Regional Board will be an interesting  area to watch in the coming year.  The School Board elections went as  anticipated. Trustee Don Douglas and  new boy Tim Frizzell had little trouble in  winning election which reflects the basic  contentment of the electorate with the  present school board. No doubt if Celia  Fisher had run again she would have  been elected. ;  As for that fellow who writes on this  page and had the temerity to try to predict the outcome of the elections, well  he scored six out of nine. He was wrong  in Gibsons where the solid indignation  about the Gibsons water system elected  a solid slate of candidates in opposition  to it and he .underestimated the challenge  of7"CharIes7?Lee^^tcf7i incumbent'������yBarry :  Pearson" in 'Area '"c'."^'Six "out"' of nine."  however, as an old ex-school teaching  acquaintance could tell him, is a C-plus  and a passing grade. Improvement, of  course, will be expected next time.  Conflict  Emotion was running high at the  Gibsons Council last Tuesday when the  business of the Pazco Fibreglass building  and its utilization was the issue. As is  usually the case when people come into  direct conflict, there is much to be said  on both sides. There is the concern  about property values and Mr. Davie  has been ill of late and it seems the  noise of the work being done there is a  major irritant.  On the other hand the people who are  to be evicted stand to lose their livelihood and the owner of the building  stands not only to see an investment  depreciate but to lose it entirely. And  this after the village council had expressed themselves as concerned that  the owner should be allowed some return  on his investment. Further there seems'  to be some indication that Brian Padzerski, who owns the building, was not  notified that if it stood empty for thirty  days it could be rezoned.  There seemed to be little indication  of a compromise solution last week and  the revoking of the licences does seem  a hardship to the owners and the  renters who entered the premises in good  faith. It is to be hoped that those involved  can still get together this side of legal  conflict and come to some compromise  arrangement which will give something  to both sides. The ill-feeling that the  affair has. generated is most unfortunate and this episode must rank as  one of the worst handled of the outgoing council's term. It does seem that  the blame for allowing the situation to  develop must be laid at the council's  door and it is to be hoped that the incoming council will bend some effort to  right the situation as soon and as well  as is possible.  from the files of Coast News  5 YEARS AGO  At the Twilight Theatre: 101 Dalma-  tions and The Swiss Family Robinson.

To seaward, Slingsby  and Schooner Channels lead to Queen Charlotte Sound. Inland, the  Rapids alternately raises and lowers the waters of Seymour Inlet,  Allison Sound, Mereworth Sound, Belize Inlet, Nugent Sound and  Frederick Sound. With their offshoot bays and lagoons, these constitute the most complex waterways let into the "drowned" mainland  coast.  Tremble Island, from which this picture was taken,  derives  its name from accounts that it quivers at the peak surge of the enormous turbulent river. Vic Eckstein, who spent eight years at Allison  Harbour, four miles away, says that the roar of the Rapids could be  heard clearly from there during spring tides. Fishermen and loggers  have run the Nakwakto for many years; but Vic saw a few pale survivors, in shock from having mistimed slack water by a few moments,  who wished that they had been destined never to visit Seymour  Inlet.

When  the sun goes' down we busily  set about creating pale, imitations  of it in the dark, whether we  huddle over a campfire in the  wilds or cluster, under neon lights  X in the city. I am moved to these?'  ������-- -non-revolutionary. - observations'  by an incident of this morning.  My landlady, Mrs. Jean Braun,  told me the other day quite matter  of factly that there was a cougar  about the place on North Road.  It's apparently a regular feature  in the winter time and has been  noted before, probably the farm  marks the edge of its winter  range, and she with an eye born  to the country has seen the evidence of its presence this year  again.  The busyness of daytime  events had driven the matter  from my thoughts except for the  occasional speculation caused by  the intent behaviour of the dog  sometimes after dark. This morning about three thirty the dog  woke me and wanted out. This  was an unusual occurrence in  itself but I was half asleep and  sort of reasoned that since I  had been at a meeting right  after supper and the dog confined to the house since late  afternoon, his usual decent continence was taxed and I let him  out and crawled back into the  warm. Just after four I sat bolt  upright in bed and thought,  "My God, the cougar," and went  and called the dog, peering,  " shivering into the dark from the  half circle of the porch light:  I called and whistled into the  encroaching dark and heard, or  thought I heard as sound that  took me back a decade to another  time and another place.  It  was  my  second  winter  in  the Yukon and the temperature  in December had risen to fifteen  degrees below zero, Fahrenheit,  which   balmy   temperature    induced me to undertake a walk of  ten miles or so to visit my friends  Art and  Margie  Fry who lived  on Bonanza Creek.   The way to  my   friends'   house   led   along  Bonanza Creek on a road built  on the tailing piles left by the  huge gold dredges but the crisp  clarity of the air and the whiteness of the snow lent even the  trailing   piles   a   beauty   in   the  winter time.     With  me on the  walk were my two dogs,   Pogo  Panache   the   one-eyed   spaniel  I had found in Montreal and Sam  McGee who was a  lion-hearted  northern malamute with rickety  back legs I had inherited in Dawson City.  I was trudging happily along  in my mukluks through the powder snow enjoying the brief  gold of the mid-day sun in December when I heard the sound.  At first I thought it was a human  moan of pain and I looked up  and paid attention to the dogs.  Pogo was standing in front of  me, her one bright eye and every  line of her shaggy black body  made little rushes at this  new,  intriguing creature.   The big cat  bellied the snow, the eyes blazed  and it began to inch towards me,  the dreadful moaning intensifying.   The folly of the young dog  , indicating anxiety; Sam was, over.?r saved me, from thg folly of myself  ;by#tnef#dge ofthe road 4^krnj?7 ffece^fl*^ cat .couldn't settle into  /down, head  on  one  sidfik�� eir.s,M^.aidecisio^ about "which of us it  pricked, the last word in eager    should attack and, still yowling  interest.;  This  was   the  second  of  my  Yukon winters.     The  first  had  coincided with the peak year of  the rabbit cycle in the north and  there were  rabbits everywhere.  Rabbits in  every  vacant  lot  in  town,   rabbits  behind  the   post  office, everywhere rabbits. What  fun the dogs had chasing rabbits  that year,   Pogo with  her  ears  flapping   and   her   legs   going  twice as fast as Sam's in an effort  to keep up; how familiar was their  hunting yips as they  were   hot  on the track, Pogo's high, shrill  and   intense,   Sammy's   gruffer  but   somehow   like   an   excited  adolescent boy  whose  voice  is  breaking and not quite in control.   The second winter was the  beginning  of a  new  cycle   and  there were no rabbits; all winter  I walked the powder snow on the  hills   above   Dawson   City   and  never saw so much as a rabbit  track.   It was a winter when all  the predators went hungry and  grew desperate in temperatures  often  more  than   sixty  degrees  Fahrenheit below zero.  It was during this second winter that I walked towards the  edge of the Bonanza Creek Road  to investigate the strange, unfamiliar sound and see what  Sammy had found. It was a great  northern lynx crouched over  something I could not see in the  snow on the bank below us. Its  desperation could be measured  by the fact that it' crouched in  full view in broad daylight less  than fifteen feet away and showed  no inclination to retreat. As I  stepped to the edge of the road  and looked down the moaning  malevolence of its sound increased and the great yellow eyes  blazed at me beneath the ears  and tufts of hair. I kicked aside  the powder snow and picked up  some tailing pile rocks and began  to lob them at the lynx, consumed  with curiosity about what it.had  there. It was not a rational  thing to do in the face of a large  and starving wild cat in below  zero temperatures and seven  miles from anywhere. The  canny Pogo indicated ' her dis-'  pleasure by abandoning the scene  immediately - I found her later  a half mile up the road, quivering  in anxiety and looking back to  where she'd left us. Sammy and  I, I'm afraid, were much less  intelligent.. As 1 threw rocks  he   barked   in   excitement   and  its fearful warnings, turned and  slipped among some alder bushes  from where it watched balefully.  I began to get a measure of  its desperation only when 1 went  down and looked at the trophy  it seemed willing to defend with  its life. Three frozen ribs of  moose, gnawed clean and left  by wolves were all it had. Three  frozen bones it chewed on desperately. 1 called the young dog  to me and followed Pogo. leaving  the lynx to its frozen, desperate  dinner.  It was that sound I thought I  heard this morning as I called  and whistled to my dog from my  patch of yellow light into the  blackness all around, the sound of  a large and hungry cat prepared  to contest what it had found.  The dog did not come and I did  not venture into the hoar frost  and the dark. Surrounded by  our artificial lights, machinery  and guns we sometimes get the  feeling, do we not, that we are  the chosen of creation but somehow it seems much less certain  in the dark.  1 was convinced my dog was  dead and when daylight came  went into the woods to find his  bones or at least his flea collar  in sad corroboration. I could  find no traces and was gloomily  contemplating the deeper wood  when he bounded, golden and  alive, from some doggy adventure  of his own but those dark hours  when I thought I heard again a  big cat make his killing claim  taught me again that, surely,  we are creatures of the light.  A couple of weeks ago, fitness  freak Fran Berger wrote a letter  to the editor challenging my  apparently hypocritical, wishy  washy approach to physical  fitness. Mrs. Berger was bemused by the notion that on the  one hand 1 extolled the virtues of  the championship of smoke  ; filled ale houses while on the  ;6ther I could praise'the benefits"  of physically demanding games.  She could not seem to understand that while I do have to work  very hard at keeping my body  together, I hate every minute  of it.  Mrs. Berger of course represents another view. She jogs the  paths of righteousness, wheedling, nagging and cajoling her  neighbours into cardio-vascular  heaven. It is the self-righteous,  fanatical approach to physical  well being, probably some twisted, guilt-ridden distortion of the  Protestant ethic.  I've never met Mrs. Berger.  and the gentle and humorous  tone of her letter certainly did  not provoke a petulant response.  However, it was a challenge to  my philosphical integrity and my  lifestyle and as such ought to be  answered. I also have no doubt  that Fran is very fit. Her newspaper articles suggest also that  she probably is an expert on the  subject of fitness. Since most  people don't have to worry much  about fitness until their 30's and  since it takes a considerable time  to gain that kind of expertise.  I suspect that she is probably a  very physically fit fifty. No doubt  she is thin, brown and taut from  the tops of her blue tinged grey-  head to the tips of her besneaker-  ed toes, altogether a fine tribute  to salad, wheatgerm. herbal tea  and several times around the  world on her exercise bike. I  have to admire a person who can  perservere against the inevitable.  I respect anybody who can keep  fit past 35 let alone 50.  But - it's not for me.   I am an  Epidermal macabre  Indelicate is he who loathes  The aspect of his fleshy clothes -  The flying fabric stitched on bone.  The vesture ofthe skeleton.  The garment neither fur nor hair,  The cloak of evil and despair,  The veil long violated by  Caresses of the hand and eye.  Yet such is my unseemliness:  I hate my epidermal dress,  The savage blood's obscenity,  the rags of my anatomy,  And willingly would I dispense  With false accoutrements of sense.

Yii~A  ��� i  I  ���I LETTERS to the EDITOR  Coast News, November 22,1977.  3.  In defence of the Bible  Appreciation  Editor:  Re: the letter from Mr. Cruckshank expressing the opinion  that the Bible is a hoax.  Mr. Cruckshank, your suggestion that we round up the clergy  and put them to work on road  gangs and close down all the  churches does not sound very  democratic to me J Everyone  should have the right to worship,  or not worship, as he pleases,  without being' 'put'' anywhere.  Your remarks about the Bible  being written by primitive people  may be true (though I doubt they  were quite as primitive as you  suggest) but that does not mean  that they were all liars! The most  likely explanation is that they  were trying to describe events  which fwere beyond their comprehension. We, in the twentieth  century should be beginning to  understand what they were trying  to tell us.  Imagine for a moment, Mr.  Cruckshank, that you had never  heard of, let alone seen, any  type of aircraft - how would you  describe the first one you ever  saw? As a "winged chariot"  or - a "gigantic silver bird".  Would that mean that you were  lying? I think not. A persons  power of description is, of necessity, limited by the bounds of  his own experience and knowledge.  Instead of knocking the Bible,  what we should be doing is  reading it afresh with our eyes  open. There are many elaborate  and seemingly fanciful descriptions in the Bible, many of them  referring to visitations from the  heavens. Is it not possible  that God Himself is a supremely  ^ intelligent physical being from  somewhere else in the universe,  who chose to create life on this  planet "in His own Image"?  There are a great many passages  in the Bible which lead me to  the belief that this is the case.  The most impressive of which is  the reference to the conception  and birth of Jesus Christ. The  Bible states quite clearly that  Jesus is the only begotten son of  God - begotten, not made. It  also tells us that Mary, the  mother of Jesus, was a virgin.  Whereas these statements may  appear to be contradictory,  I believe that they are both true.  Artificial-insemination by a donor  has been a medical fact for years.  Isn't it feasible that God chose  Mary to be the mother of His  child and that she was artificially  inseminated with His seed?  Also consider the Star of  Bethlehem. The shepherds  followed what they believed to be  a star. But have you ever tried  to stand directly beneath a star?  You could stand anywhere along  this coast and still think the star  was right above you. Perhaps  the Star of Bethlehem was the  light from an aircraft (Helicopter?) which guided the shepherds to the stable? Or perhaps  something else again!  ��� It is my belief that the events  recorded in the Bible are all  true, as seen through the eyes  of persons who did not understand what they were witnessing.  Some events are still beyond our  comprehension, but maybe future  generations willy understand  them. At this point in time it  seems crazy to imagine Eve's  being made from the rib of Adam;  but just because we cannot do  it, doesn't mean that it could not  be done. God obviously possesses all the  medical  and  tech  nical skills which we lack, combined with the wisdom and compassion toward which we strive.  The concept of His being a physical person rather than a faceless  spirit should not be beyond us  now. A line from an ancient  hymn says that to God "a thousand ages are like an evening  gone." When viewed with space  travel in mind, this line makes a  lot of sense. Time on our planet  would mean nothing to someone  from another planet, or another  galaxy.  So you see Mr. Cruckshank,  there are. other views of the  Bible besides the depressing one  expressed by yourself. Instead  of disregarding the whole book as  a pile of rubbish we should all,  read it again and discuss it  openly. That way, we may  actually find that it Is true, after  all.  (Mrs.) Jean Milward  Gibsons, B.C.  And again  Editor:  Re: Bible seen as hoax, Coast  News, Nov. 8,1977.  As a lover of the sacred Scripture from childhood, I have  always realized what a tremen- .  dous treasure the word of God is  and what an indescribable blessing to all who study and receive its great soul transforming  truths into heart and life. In  1 Pet. 2:7 we read "unto you  therefore which believe He is  precious." Divine inspiration  makes the Bible uniquely the  word of God and as such is different from any other book sacred  or secular. It is an inspired revelation of God's redemptive plan  and purposes in Christ on behalf  of man, and not a revelation of  natural science or a book of  secular history.  Although the Bible consists  of 66 books it is nevertheless one  book. The unifying theme of  Scripture is Christ. '., The Old  Testament prepares for Him and  predicts Him in both type and  prophecy. The Gospels present  Him redeptively in divine human  manifestations.  The purpose of the Bible was  to bear witness to one God,  Creator and Sustainer of the universe through Christ, ..Redeemer  of sinful man. It presents one  continuous story - that of human  redemption. This story is a progressive unfolding of the central  truth ofthe Bible that God in His  eternal counsels was to become  incarnate in Jesus Christ for the  redemption of fallen man. In  life and in example Jesus of  Nazareth remains without peer.  Crucified because He claimed to  be God, His resurrection confirms His claim. The evidence of  history supports the fact of the  resurrection of Jesus.  I can truly say with Paul in  Romans 1:16 "For I am not  ashamed of the Gospel of Christ:  for it is the power of God unto  salvation to everyone that believeth."  Mary Cooper  Selma Park, B.C.  Editor:  Gibsons was dropped in my  lap and I was hooked ever since.  I subscribe to your paper and  follow your events with a watchful eye of, hopefully, a future  resident and participant of the  daily affairs of this haven - a  Shangri-La ofthe modern world;  I have found Manuane Laplante 's article in the October  11th issue of the Coast News  equal to that of anything, including Russell Baker of the New  York Times, on "Stripper at  Gibsons", a wonderful commentary on how decadence can easily  infiltrate our dignity as women,  and how-humourous and sexless  sex can be. (I am a sexy mother  of four.)  It's encouraging that you as  editor can command such skillful  contributors to a paper so far  removed from big. cities and still  can teach and inform us. Living  in the environs of New York, we  feel powerless to influence the  direction of our daily lives, but  we can aspire to the hope that  articles such as this by thoughtful writers can direct Gibsons'  future.

Fri., Sat.  Nov. 24, 25, 26.  / 4.  Coast News, November 22,1977  RIDDEN OUT ON A Rail  My involvement with the pulpmill town of Port Mellon falls  into a couple of distinct phrases:  the early Forties boyhood period  and the second stand we made  there in the early-to-mid-Fifties.  The latter and longer sojurn was  considerably less-idyllic than the  first, due to a marked change in  our status. Originally, as the  superintendent Tyrgg Iversen's  family, we had occupied one of  the better homes in that jerry-  built, tarpaper town. When we  returned to homestead and hopefully log the sixty-acre property  Trygg had willed to my mother,  it was to circumstances more  primitive than those of the lowliest millworker. We lived at  first under impossibly-congested  conditions in a one-room shack  and a stump-house with no electricity or running water. Later,  another log cabin and an additional room were built but it was  never any palace at the best of  times. After a year of logging-  camps and random construction-  work, my brother Chris and I  took jobs at the mill which entitled us to move into one of the  Company bunkhouses.  We started out on the yard-  crew as was customary and the  first task we were given was to*  break-up several logjams in the  Rainy River around the pipeline-  intake.     I  suppose  we'd   rated  this assignment because of our  logging   experience   but   there  was also  the feeling  that they  were somehow testihg our mettle.  As a result,  Chris and I determined to do a good job.  We went  at it with an erratic power-saw,  a   couple   of  peaveys   and   our  gloved  hands,  working  from  a  rocky   island   in   the  middle   of  that   winterquick   river;   cutting  the jammed  logs  into  sections;  hurling and bullying them into  the frothing  mainstream.     The  wood was mostly alder and not  especially   big   but   there   was  plenty of it.   We made a game of  the task sometimes, pretending  we were Quebecois lumberjacks  working the spring drive. "White  water!" we'd shout as each piece  kicked   loose   and   galloped   off  downcurrent to the sea.  It would  have been pleasant-enough work  except   for   the   late-December  cold that numbed our fingers and  feet.    Luckily we were working  close by the intake-keeper's  shack. We retired there periodically to warm-up and dry off.  After a week, we had the worst  jams pretty-much cleaned-up and  were assigned to more orthodox  chores around the mill-site.   We  humped  lime-sacks out of boxcars;   shovelled   sawdust;   piled  lumber   and   longshored   pulp-  bales   on   the   deep-sea   ships.  On one onerous occasion, several  of us were loaned to the pipe-  fitting-department   and   put   to  disinterring an ancient and foul-  smelling septic-tank.    This unpleasant task disabused .me for  all time, of any interest in the  plumbing business. For the most  part however, I liked the bull-  gang and would have been quite  content to stay there.   This was  not   to   be   for   the   yard-crew  functioned as a labour-pool and  new   men   merely   marked-time  there while waiting to be transferred   into   the    plant    itself.  Shortly, two jobs came open in  the machine-room.    Chris and I  found  ourselves   on  shift-work,  learning   how   to   crank   hand-  baling machines, run lift-trucks,  tend-boxes on the obsolete No. 1  machine   and   thread   the   tail  around the dryers again  when  the sheet broke.  The machine-room in those  days was considerably less-automated than it is now and the  pace, while not perhaps killing  was certainly brisk. Some attempt was made to alleviate  monotony by rotating men on the  different jobs but the deadening  sense of endless repetition was  inescapable just the same. Production-lines vary little in this  respect, no matter what product  they happen to be spewing out.  However monotony was not the  primary problem during the  period that Chris and I worked  there. The problem was 'breaks':  the infrequency of coffee or  proper lunch-breaks and the  frequency of the pulp-sheet  breaking on the long, revolving  banks of cylindrical, steam-  heated dryers. They were having  a great deal of trouble in main  taining a proper level of consistency in the pulp-mixture and  as a result these mishaps were  constantly occurring.  Each time the weak sheet  parted there was an instant  yammering of buzzers and flashing of lights. It was a signal to  drop whatever we were doing  and head for the broke-pit,  a concrete trough like an oversized grease-pit in a garage,  that ran the length of the dryer-  banks. We'd scramble to the  point of the break where the  sheet was unrolling wildly into  the pit and pull it out along the  bottom so it would not all accumulate in one spot. The free end  would run through until the upper  dryers were clear. Then a 'tail'  would be torn on the righthand  side of the sheet and passed  manually around each dryer in  turn until the whole business was  rethreaded and the operation  functioning normally once more.  A single break of this sort was  of no great consequence but often  there were several in a row and  the pit became clogged with  pulp. Each time there was less  room to work. I can remember  literally worming through on my  back on at least one occasion,  like a miner in a tight drift.  It was virtually impossible to  avoid getting burned on the hot  dryers under these circumstances. Generally a number of men  would be kept over-time to clean  out the pits after such a calamitous shift.  The machine just referred to  was the biggest and most modern  of the two, the mill boasted at  that time. The second was a  smaller and much older model  that had been cranking out pulp  since the Thirties or even earlier.  It had stubby, narrow dryers  and the sheets of cut pulp flopped  out into wooden boxes instead of  onto an automatic layboy table  such as the big machine possessed. The boxes were tended  manually, the accumulated sheets  being lifted out by hand and  stacked on rollers. This job  could   have   its. moments   too.  Sometimes the pulp would have  too little moisture in it and the  cut sheets would waft from the  machine like dry leaves, missing  the boxes altogether and scattering over the floor. These  occasions were irksome to say  the least.  Because ofthe rotation-system,  we were given a crack at all  these jobs. The baling was  straightforward enough. Two  men stood on either side of a  roller table; as each bale came  out of the press, it was positioned  on a wrapper, the wrapper folded  and spiked with a hand-pick and  the whole business cinched tight  with heavy baling-wire by means  of a hand-cranked baling-machine. The bale was then rotated  and the process repeated. When  new men were being broken in,  bale-jams frequently developed  but it was easy enough work  once you got the hang of it. If -  you had a good partner, the process went smooth and steady as  clockwork until your relief took  over.  The finished bales were lifted  from the table by means of a  hand-operated   electric   grapple  and piled on pallet-boards.   The  pallets when loaded, were carried  away by lift-truck and  stacked  three-tiers high in the adjacent  warehouse.     While performing  the latter task one night, I ran  into.a bit of trouble.   I had just  stacked a loaded pallet on the.  third tier and begun to back the  lift-truck away.    My forks were  not   lowered   quite   sufficiently  however  and  the  entire   three  tiers, representing a good many  tons of pulp, began to topple over  on me.    I didn't know what in  hell to do so I simply floorboarded  the brake and hollered for help.  The lift-man came to my assistance and together we managed  to ram the tottering stack back  in place.  Thus it went in the Port Mellon  machine-room of the early Fifties.  Neither Chris nor I was particularly in love with the job but it  beat setting chokers in the snow  and our workmates (with" a few  exceptions)    were 7 a    friendly-  enough bunch. - We decided ,to,v  tough  it   out   for ..awhile   until??,  something better came along.

Both films will play the Twilight  for four days.  The Deep is another adventure film featuring the terrors  of the sea. Like Jaws, it stars  Robert Shaw, with Jacqueline  Bisset, Nick Nolte, and Eli  Wallach also prominent. Like  Jaws, too, it is based on a best-  selling novel by Peter Benchley  and Director Peter Yates and a  top underwater crew has captured  some of the most exciting sea  sequences ever filmed. The  appealing Jacqueline Bisset  opens the movie and it ends with  an action-filled climax featuring  a rugged bareknuckle brawl  between two giants, Robert  Tessier and Earl Maynard. In  between there is much to admire:  Robert    Shaws's    performance.  Bisset's beauty, and some lovely  location shots of Bermuda. The  film features a good deal of  action on land and in the sea,  including a bizarre voodoo  ritual. Sharks and a huge eel  supply some of the menace but  the human element looms large  in that department. The film will  play locally Wednesday through  Saturday, November 23-26.  Outlaw Blues stars Peter Fonda  and Susan Saint James and  is described as a country and  western musical, a contemporary,  drama with comedy, and an  action film. "You might call it  a musical version of Bonnie and  Clyde," we are told. All in all  the film has a bit of something  for everyone and is often a great  deal of fun.

The alert reader may suspect  that South was looking for a  pause from the West player. If  West held the queen of diamonds  he may pause to consider whether  or not to cover an honor with an  honor. However, in these situations it is usually the fourth  player who tips off the placement  of the missing card.  To the jack of diamond lead.

General Notes: The Sun and  Full Moon are both poorly as-  pected by Saturn indicating a  rather cautious and gloomy week  for many of us. If possible, new  undertakings should be postponed until the end of next week  when more helpful configurations  take place.  Saturn has now moved briefly  into Virgo but most subjects of  this sign will not feel its restricting effects till late next year.  Those of you born around Nov.  22, Aug. 23, May 21, or Feb. 19  should tolerate any present delays philosophically as Saturn  contacts the Sun positions in  your various birth charts.  Babies born this week may be  anxiety prone and should be  given much love and reassurance.  Although very sensitive and  idealistic, they'll sometimes  lack confidence and enthusiasm.  Lots of hugs should do the trick.  Sorry folks - but depressing  forecasts for all of us this week.  ARIES (March 21 - April 19)  Disappointing messages,  visits, and correspondence do  little to relieve you of the boring  restrictions now in effect on the  work scene. Chest and lungs  need extra care at this time.  TAURUS (April 20 - May 20)  General financial conditions  are likely to be gloomy and this  is definitely no time for any form  of speculation. Checkbooks and  all possessions need to be guarded. Social outings are a drag.  GEMINI (May 21 - June 21)  People will find you unusually  anxious and apprehensive during  the next few days. Try not to  project your moods on to loved  ones. Brooding in the home is  the very last thing you should do.  CANCER (June 22 - July 22)  Nagging health or employment  worries should now be tackled  firmly. 'As the week closes,  seek out optimistic, fun-loving  people and avoid being alone.  Large institutions come under  focus.  Believe it or not, friends and  acquaintances are doing their  best to please you. But don't  expect group projects to progress at a faster rate. Weekend  social activities are expensive  and boring.  VIRGO (Aug. 23 0 Sept. 22)  Your present status, position,  or achievements are likely to  face a temporary setback. This  forewarns the need soon to reassess your life's direction,  especially when Saturn moves  through your sign next year.  Plan ahead now.  LIBRA (Sept. 23 - Oct. 23)  Your present beliefs and philosophy could be crumbling a little  and you may already be losing  faith. A casual short journey  becomes a burden. Long distance messages are unexpectedly  upsetting.  SCORPIO (Oct. 24 - Nov. 22)  Other people's cash resources  could be a source of anxiety.  Financial manocvering may be  necessary if long-range plans are  to succeed. Free yourself from  morbid thoughts and wishes as  the week closes.  SAGITTARIUS (Nov 23 - Dec 21)  Those around you will need  cheering up and reassuring but  don't allow their personal frustrations to undermine your present achievements and future  hopes.  CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 - Jan 19.)  Selfish work associates could  be the source of your present  gloom and pessimism. But make  no deals. Any recurring health  problems has now to be diagnosed.  AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 - Feb. 18)  Friends arc over-cautious and  dull., bringing disappointments to  spare-time activities and social  occasions. Recent risks and  speculations now echo "told  you so!".  PISCES (Feb. 19 - Mar. 20)  Those close to you are out to  make your domestic scene deliberately miserable at this time.  However impractical, spending a  day or two alone may be the  answer.

Zoe Landale, a young woman  who has spent the last few years  as a commercial fisherman here  on the B.C. coast, has now  written a book about her experiences. It's a'lively, warm,  descriptive, anecdotal account,  and certainly one of the best  books that will ever be written  about this particular subject.  If you know anything about  commercial fishing, you'll find  it to be a very life-like rendering  of days spent at sea. If you don't  know anything about commercial  fishing, this book could be an  enjoyably painless education for  you. And even if you're not the  least interested in fishing, this  book is still an eminently readable  story.  It's made readable because  the author, the situations and the  people she describes are all so  very human. There's a self-  deprecating tone here that is  very attractive. Mrs. Landale  doesn't portray herself as the  final authority on fishing or  boats, or the coast, or, indeed,  anything. Instead, she seems to  be saying that yes, she's young  and inexperienced, she doesn't  know all there is to know, but  she doesn't mind making mistakes as long as she learns  something in the process. This  attitude is very compelling, and  before you're half way through  the book, you can't help becoming fond of its author.  She does well with whatever  she touches. Her pictures of the  people who inhabit the north  coast - the shrewd lady fish  buyers, the drawling, secretive,  noncommittal fishermen, and the  freeloaders that hang around the  wharves, are all equally well  drawn. Her descriptions of life  on the boat, in which she clearly  explains all the gear that is necessary for a salmon troller, as  well as what it is like to live in  such a small, constantly pitching  space, are detailed and accurate.  She conveys a life at sea with  imprssive exactitude. She can  write about trying to bake a  cheesecake while pounding into  a gale, or she can tell you about  watching the sunset out on the  ocean, and in either situation  you feel as if you 're right on  board the boat.  This is the inside story about  what it's like to be a fisherman.  It introduces you to the   long,  tiring days, the by-guess-and-by-  God chances, the funny mistakes, the dangerous seas and  the dubious boats that comprise  this profession, which is really  more a lifestyle than a job. Zoe  Landale has written about it in  a revealing but friendly way.  Commercial fishermen as a group  are not the sort to give their  approval easily, yet I think they  would enjoy this book immensely.  As the author notes in one of  the final chapters: "It is rare for  a fisherman to commit himself  defintely on any subject. He may  say: 'Yah, wall I guess it isn't  any too fine out here, but a man  might just see worse..."  Those of us who aren't fishermen can be a little less careful.  This is a most interesting, very  well written book. It deserves  every success.  Canada 1978 Calendar  William Kurelek  Tundra Books  Of the many calendars being  published for the forthcoming  year, this one, with its collection  of twelve of William Kurelek's  paintings, is likely to be one of  the most pleasing ways to keep  track of the passing time. Kurelek's work has a way of reaching  straight for the heart. With his  simple forms, austere backgrounds, and his nearly sticklike people, he stretches past  the artificial to get to the very  heart of childhood, and the bare  prairie farming life.  Kurelek revels in childhood.  His bemittened, furry-hatted  youngsters -grace nearly all the  paintings included here. They  dash around in the snow - playing  games, trying to catch an errant,  escaped chicken, wading across  nearly frozen ponds, or standing  in confused huddles around a  back yard skating rink, arguing  over the finer points of hockey.  Kurelek 'not only painted children, he painted in much the same  way a child would paint. His  angular people, with their simple  faces, their bony forms, and  their faintly comical clothes,  stop just short of being caricatures. Instead, by creating his  subjects only so far, Kurelek's  work calls up a sweet co-creation  on the part of the viewer. We  want to urge the figures on. We  want to extend their movements  and finish the scene. We want  to become part ofthe painting.

B.C.   980-6571  Certainly our widespread  yearning for the "good old days"  would account for the success of  this work. These are all simple  scenes - full of lives lived out  that are as yet uncomplicated.  One painting shows a "Field  Day", with a "wheelbarrow  race" in progress. Another  shows two boys in a field catching  baby kildeer. A third depicts  "Milking Time", with a farmer  milking one of his cows, while  several cats stand around trying  to act nonchalant, and the far-  ner's small daughter pulls on the  tail ofthe cow.  Along with the simplicity of  the scenes, Kurelek manages  always to. indulge in the very  slightest sense of humour. The  fleeing chicken seems to have an  outraged look on its face, the pigs  coming to the feeding trough  look more like cartoons than,  pigs, and.the kids arguing over  their hockey game have their  caps screwed on their heads  with brims and ear flaps sticking  out everywhere.  Yet Kurelek's work, with it's  angles and smirks and stark-  ness, doesn't simply poke fun,  it brings fun. The viewer is  brought into the scene, and is  included in the action. Looking  at these paintings, we must remove our sophistication to get  inside them. Having done that,  we are carried back into the  mystical world of childhood - to  a time when things were harsh  but simple, to a time when the  front yard was as big as the  world, and to a time when we  could still taste the snoWflakes  on our tongue.  This calendar of William Kure-  lek's paintings achieves a warmth  and simplicity that seems unique.  Certainly such qualities will  not be over abundant in 1978,  but if you have this calendar  around, you'll at least be sure of  capturing some of them.

In addition  to a full orchestra of eighty.  Burritt's work was also scored  for a choir and two solo voices.  The   orchestration   of   David  had been in Burritt's mind for  some years ever since he took an  English course with Birney  several years ago. The work  was commissioned by the Music  Educators of B.C. Convention and  marked the end of the group's  annual convention this year. The  seventy-five year old Birney  expressed himself as being  very pleased with the work.  Burritt, aged 37, is best known  for his work in electronic music,  and some of the expertise he has  gained in this field was put to  good use in the Birney work with  taped sounds of wind and loon  cries incorporated into the work.  The composer attended the  Tanglewood Berkshire Music  Festival and has toured European  electronic centres.  Perhaps his first major break  as a composer came when Meredith Davies. at that time conductor-director of the Vancouver  Symphony Orchestra, took a  great interest in his work. He  commissioned Burritt to compose  the electronic work Assassination, perhaps his best known  work. Another work. Ikon,  composed for organ and tape, has  met with wide acewptance.  At the present time Burritt is  the Head of the Music Department at Argyle Secondary School  in Vancouver.

Our Dining Room is NOW OPEN  Mon. - Sat. 1 p.m. - Midnight  Sunday 10a.m. - 10p.m.  Changes in assessment law now make it  possible for property owners to accurately  measure whether they are fairly assessed.  Your 1978 property Assessment Notice,  issued by the British Columbia Assessment  Authority, is in the mail and will be arriving  at your door shortly. An information  brochure explaining the changes accompanies the notice.  When they arrive, please take time to read  both carefully...  Why changes in  assessment law?  Assessments had become outdated. They  had become inequitable in terms of their  actual value relationships. Properties having  identical market values were assessed at  widely differing amounts. This resulted in  some owners paying more than their fair  share of taxes and others less.  The new law required production of the ���  1978 assessment roll based on fixed percentages of actual value for each class of  property. This means that the inequities will  be removed, and that each class of property  wall be assessed on the same basis. In all,  it provides a fairer way to share the cost of  essential local services.  What will happen to taxes?  The assessment roll provides the rate base  used by municipalities, school boards and  other local governments to raise the funds  necessary to provide essential local services.  The costs of these services determine the  overall amount required to be raised by  local property taxes.  The purpose of the change in assessment  law is NOT to raise more taxes but to  provide a fairer basis upon which to apportion the costs of essential local services  more equitably between property owners.  Since assessments are now directly related  to actual value, your assessed values may be  higher or lower than in previous years.  An increase or a decrease in your assessed  values from those in effect last year does not  necessarily mean that your property taxes  will change significantly. Tax notices based  on your new assessed values will be issued  later in 1978.  Is my 1978 assessment fair?  As your assessment is now based on a fixed  percentage of what your property is worth  its fairness can be measured by actual  value comparisons.  The Assessor's estimate of your property's  actual value (market value) is shown on  your 1978 Assessment Notice.  The fairness of your assessment may be  determined by comparing the Assessor's  estimate of actual value of your property to  your own estimate of its current market  value as well as by comparing it to the  current market values of properties of  similar worth.  The percentage of Actual value at which  each class of property will be assessed is:  Residential - 15��/o (includes apartments,  condominiums, mobile homes, etc.)  Business and Other-25% (includes commercial, some industrial).  Industrial, Utilities, Machinery and Equipment, Forestry-30%.  The Assessor and his staff will give you  every assistance necessary to properly  check your assessment.  What appeal do I have?  Your Assessor is prepared to provide you  with a detailed explanation of how your  assessment was determined.  If you are dissatisfied with the assessment  and wish an independent review, a right of  appeal is available to you. The procedure to  complain is simple and is fully explained  on the reverse of your 1978 Assessment  Notice. The deadline for any written appeal  is January 20,1978.  The new assessment method is fully explained in the brochure that will accompany  the mailing of your individual Assessment  Notices.  Look at your  Assessment Notice. ;.  it's different  this year!  It now shows both  the actual (market)  value and the  assessed value on  which your 1978 taxes  will be based.  BRITISH COLUMBIA  BI/\ I ASS!

Circle the date on your calendar, -  it's sooner than you think!  by Andy Randall  The Colours of Our Thinking  One of the more hopeful signs  of our times is the growing tendency to think in many colours.  No longer can our youngsters be  restricted, as many of us oldies  were, by the old patterns of our  generation, in which most every  thing was black and white. I  am speaking now in terms of  the thinking in blacks and whites.  These thinking colours would  be un-arguable absolutes. In  points of view, convictions, beliefs, rarely would there be the  harmony of other colours. Everything, I repeat, everything was  factual. You were committed to  say, or hear, an emphatic YES,  or NO! No place for Mr. In-  Between.  It has come as a shock to us  that our offspring challenges so  much that had been prohibitive,  sacred, or ringed around with  taboos. I am sure, many will  agree with me that this trend of  our times is a healthy sign. This  is a form of revolutionary thinking  and as with most revolutions,  much progress, and good will  come.  Hindmost in the march of progress are the uncertain ones,  the timid, or those with the  emphatic "blacks and whites"  who hold to their precious absolutes as treasures to be jealously  guarded.  They are fortunate indeed  when some time, some day, a  light is switched on in their  cranium and - they perceive new  ideas . that really colour their  world. In short, their perspective has changed. Their precious  darlings, be they cats, dogs,  children, or ideas, are compared  with others and they see there is  a middle way of looking at most  everything.  To be "set in your ways"  is to be imprisoned in your self-  built ivory tower. When such  occurs in an intelligent religious  person, then a certain monasticity  blocks the more flexible and  natural growth of middle way  thinking. Have you ever thought  how far we have retrogressed  from the ever questioning mind  of childhood? Of course we can  apply - the same reasoning to  the mental picturing in other  spheres of life. We can be mulish  in regard to our pet political,  or theory, or sport's activity;  and whatever does obsess us to  the point of almost blind stupidity.,  reflects to some degree the unconscious soaking up of our  early environment.  So why have so many among  us got that "black and white"  syndrome? .      J  Possibly, while they thought  they had it all straight (thinking  that is) they did not know of the  Einstein curve, in which seeming��  ly straight lines take a WOW I  And let's face it. There has been  in each one of us just a smidging  of brain-washing in childhood.  Whatever form or direction it  took, so we have re-acted in our  various guises that range from  the near-zombie to the .fairly  adjusted person of the Middle  Way. What's your colour scheme? Black or White? I'm a gypsy  for rich colours of change, and  challenge. Try them, they will  colour your world.  I started this article by commenting favorably on the more  progressive thinking of this era,  but, just do not get carried away  with the idea that I am a pushover  for every new phase of our living.  What a great opportunity our  younger society has missed or  ruined by much mediocre thinking that reflects in their going  overboard on rock-music, little  of which has real quality in verse  or tunefullness. The repetitive  Ow! Ow! Ow! Ow! suggests  somebody, in pain and is painful  to listen to. Art forms of today  suggest that man has fallen below the standard of the caveman,  whose cave paintings can be  recognised as "true minora of  nature. And that is what art is  basically all about. Mind you,  their immediate elders passed.on  a cubic form, and monkeyish  canvas splash-line style that was  considered great stuff. And they  too rave over a gravel-voiced  guy who couldn't qualify for the  average- church choir. "Old  Blue-Eyes" as the media and  record shufflers call him, should  have retired before he was hailed  as a successor to Bing Crosby. .,  Drugs? What a tragic impact  on our -younger ones. Films?  Their phony message, if they  have one; and sex glorification  with violence; buckets of blood  and bloodier language that rates  high the filthier they can spit it  out on screen.  If the young people are looking  for a better world to live in,  then why not use the opportunity  you have of progressive thinking  and tackle the obvious wrongs  I have listed. Sure you may not  agree with me now, neither did  my Jwo sons when, they were/  your age. but they listed tome  the things I have mentioned  above. Give it all a MIDDLE-  THINK.

Elphinstone Chapter #65 Order of the  Eastern Star was a very special  and happy official visit with these  Grand Officers of The Grand  Chapter of B.C. and Yukon Order  of Eastern Star.  The officers had an afternoon  of constructive and enlightening  instruction on their ritual work  and its performance.  The dinner hour preceding the  evening meeting gave the Grand  visitors an opportunity to visit  with members of the chapter who  had not attended the afternoon  session. In many cases old  friendships were renewed and  of course new ones made.  It was a very proud moment  for the Worthy Matron Mrs.  Mary Gordon, when the Grand  Matron complimented the officers  and members on their work and  remarked that they did everything in this chapter excellently.  Mrs. Bea Rankin, a Past  Matron of Mt. Elphinstone  Chapter, presented Mrs. Fetterly  with a cheque to be used for  cancer research. Mrs. Fetterly  remarked on the amount of work  that is done by this chapter's  cancer station members, they  are well known for the amount  of free cancer dressings, made  and supplied locally and provincially and the chapter as a  whole was praised for the fund  raising projects for this worthy  cause and the many memorial  donations also contributed.  Another Past Matron Mrs.  Edna Fisher presented Mrs.  Fetterly with a money corsage  in the shape of a fan - this to. be  given to the Worthy Grand  Matrons own project, the Queen  Alexandra Childrens Hospital,  where it will be added to a find  to raise money for badly needed  new equipment.

R.Allen  corner  by Vince Bracewell  & Ian Corrance  Two weeks ago I mentioned  I wanted Vince Bracewell to jot  down- some 6f:"hi's' experiences.  This is the first of a two-part  story. Thanks Vince.  A few>weeks ago this paper,  published a photo of spawning  salmon that Ian had taken. This  took me back to the days of my  childhood when.my parents and  I lived on a small fruit farm in the  beautiful little valley of the North  and South Alouette Rivers between-Maple Ridge and the foot-,  hills of the 7Goldeh Ears. These  rivers 'drain a chain of lakes surrounding - these spectacular  peaks including the well known  Alouette Lake and wind their  way down through Pitt- Meadows  into the' Pitt and Fraser Rivers.  My father's property bordered on  the South Alouette and a small  stream branched off from it and  ran through the property close to  our house and thence into the"  North Alouette which flowed  through our neighbour's farm.  In those days, circa .1922,  these ^ rivers and streams were  populated by quite a variety and  abundapce of fish including the.  various: ��� species of migrating  salmon: During the. autumn the  little-stream by our house was  packed with salmon heading upstream to their birth-place and  the night was full of the sounds  of their splashing as they negotiated the rapids and ripples of the  creek.  The water in these streams  was pure and clear and the bottom provided lots of clean gravel  for the spawning beds. There  were problems however in regard  to fluctuations in flow due to rainfall and snow melt etc. and this  whole area was subjected to  seasonal floods which were  modified by tide and wind conditions in the Gulf of Georgia.  In fact the South Alouette was  considered to be tidal about a  mile downstream from our place.  During November in 1922 we  had a lot of rain and we experienced our most serious flood while  living in the Alouette Valley. The  water rose until it covered all  of the land and although our  house was on high ground it  reached the sub-floor, Va of an  inch more and it would have  floated the rugs.  My father and mother were  working frantically in hip boots  tying secure our belongings outside while I remained in the house  looking out the windows. While  looking out the dining room window I became aware of a great  deal of splashing. I opened the  casement sash and peeked down  into the flower bed in. which my  mother cultivated- some of her  more special spring bulbs and  there to my amazement were a  pair of salmon building a spawning bed! I called to my mom and  dad and they came in to have a  look and of/course my mother  was almost in tears when she saw  her favourite plants being scattered by the tails of the vigorous  fish. My father said that as he  waded around in his high boots  salmon had collided with his legs  in the murky waters.  In retrospect one might be  led to speculate on what manner  of crop these "fish farmers"  ; would produce. In a subsequent  article I will provide the answer  to this puzzle and true fishy  story.  Came cry with me  Write Ann Napier,  C/O  Coast  News, Box 460, Gibsons.  Dear Ann:  I'd like to point but a character  that I recently had,dealings with.  A friend told me of a surplus of  wood they had split and didn't  and get it so 1 found this person  *m Oi i,^^  van.'   '..   v.,-.;���. ������)!  with a truck so I said we d share  the wood if they would haul it  for me, a very short distance,  I waited by the phone not to miss  his call, when this would be convenient for him. Then:came the  day. We all loaded the pick-up  and when we came to my- place  after loading, he left me four  pieces' of wood, slivers in my  hands" and speechless. He drove  away with the load and I had to  buy hiy'wood. I'm a girl on part-  time work' and' Tie is about to  open a business. What makes a  person like that so greedy, mean  and unfeeling? I was sick to feel  helpless and treated like that.  Ripped Off  Dear Ripped:  It makes me angry just to hear  about it. But he has the money  to owrt a business and you know  it was by being cheap and selfish  that he can keep subjegating  people :and mistreating them.  It sometimes seems a viciious  circle. He will sometime do  this to a man and find a physical  reprimand - unfortunately,  there are many who like to take  advantage of their fellow man or  woman. They think it makes  them big to outwit someone on  a deal, get free labour or other-,  wise get the best of someone.  It only makes enemies and jn the  end I feel, even if they prosper,  inside "they must know they are  stinkers. Be .wary where you  put your trust.  V  Dear Ann:  1 went to see the latest male  stripper    with    some    friends.  During the show the man doing  his thing seemed to direct his  attention or performance in one  direction.  There was a man and  woman  together and   the   man  .seemed to feel the stripper was  centering   on   his   woman,. so  "without   more   provocation    he"  ��� walked over and threw beer on,  the stripper.. The management s  only reprimand was by not serving this guy.    Shouldn't they  '' have thrown him out?  Annoyed  Dear Annoyed:  Who knows? Some people  are paranoid. They can be with a  very plain ; lady but if she's  theirs; they keep trying to establish this state so it is obvious -  usually they imagine other men  are after her, because they find  her desirable the whole world  is after her, even the entertainer. So he's playing a game  and if she didn't leave, she too  is playing the game. Don't worry  about it. Sometimes it is really  hard to know what's really going  on. Yes he should be asked to  leave in my books. It is advertised and he knows what he's  going for - what to expect in  other words. So he has no excuse to behave in that manner.  If you're a jealous type it's best  to avoid provocative situations.  This obviously is one of those  situations.  Dear Ann:  T have a gay friend who has  had a steady partner for years'.  When the partner departs, he  often goes with a lady. Is he  being unfaithful?  -    Just Asking  Dear Asking:  Only, they know! They may  have an agreement as do many  people these days to be free in  their romancing. Or as one gay  fellow once said, "I get it where  lean."

Hospital Auxiliary meets  by Marie Trainor  The Gibsons Auxiliary to St.  Mary's Hospital held their  monthly meeting in the Health  Centre on Wednesday, Nov. 2nd  at 1:30 p.m. President Joan  Rigby opened the meeting with  32 members in attendance. Mrs.  Elizabeth Johnstone, a new member, was welcomed.  Reports were heard from the  various committee members,  which were very encouraging  indeed. Twenty-two members  worked a total of 69 hours in  the hospital for the month of  October. The bridge committee  reported there were five tables  at the last monthly bridge in the  health centre.  A letter was received from Val  Morrison, head nurse in the Extended Care Unit, requesting  consideration be given by the  auxiliaries to donate three radios  for use by bed patients. After  a lenghty discussion and a unanimous vote, it was decided that  Shop/CO'OP  Gibsons Auxiliary donate money  to the hospital for the purchase  of a good quality radio from one  of our local merchants.  Mrs. Ida Leslie gave a very  interesting report on the results  of the Lower Mainland Area Conference of the Auxiliary Division  ofthe B.C. Hospital Association,  which she and ten other members  attended on Oct. 19th at the  Plaza International in Vancouver.  Helen Weinhandle presented  a very enthusiastic report on  the results of the first dinner,  which our auxiliary catered to for  the Lions Club on Oct. 25th at  Harmony Hall. We gathered  from Helen's report |t was a ���  whopping success and the, Lions  members were most happy with  the food and the service provided by our ladies, as well as  being a good money making project for our auxiliary.

Lockstead reports Kinsmen Club active  One of the great ironies of this  Social Credit government involves the Crown Corporations  purchased while the N.D.P. was  the government in Victoria.  Remember how the Socreds  vowed they would sell Ocean  Falls, Kootenay Forest Products,  Panco Poultry. Columbia Cellulose back to private enterprise  because Crown Corporations  could not be efficient, responsible corporate citizens? Remember the cries about the then  N.D.P. government buying losing  propositions?  Since the N.D.P. government  bought those companies to make  sure that the jobs and communities affected by those corporations would be protected,  every one of those companies  has shown a profit. Who says  crown corporations have to be  inefficient? It has been proven,  social management of plants and  industry can be, and is in some  instances, more productive than  private enterprise while protecting jobs and considering the  long term effect on a community.  The new Resources Investment  Corporation Act, introduced in  the legislature recently, is an  opportunity for the rich only.  This bill has been widely bally-  hooed by the government as  giving the average citizen a  chance to invest in the growth of  this province, but a closer inspection shows this claim to be  nonsense. The so-called "little  man" will be the loser once  again. The act eliminates government share control of Canadian  Cellulose. Plateau Mills and  Kootenay Forest Products, and  reduces government equity in  Westcoast Transmission. These  shares will be offered to the  public, with the provision that  no one individual may purchase  shares worth more than one  percent ofthe total assets.  This all sounds great. The  government is conjuring up  visions of Joe Public getting a  piece of the action and some of  the media have jumped on the  bandwagon.  So why does the Victoria Times  call this legislation "an opportunity for the rich"? A little  arithmetic provides a clue.   The  assets are worth $140 million,  so using the one percent ceiling  (which can be altered by the  cabinet) each individual is restricted to a trifling $1.4 million  That should be great news to  pensioners, students, small  businessmen and working people  What Dave Barrett said in the  legislature bears repeating:  "The people of this province are  now being given the opportunity  to sell off something to themselves that they already own.''  In other words, the $143 million  worth of assets now owned by all  the people of B.C., and acquired  by the N.D.P. government for  only $25 million, are to be taken  away from those same people and  distributed to a minority of our  citizens. The benefits every  citizen receives by the contributions of these operations to  provincial revenues - schools,  health care, roads, etc. - are to  be tossed out.  The healthy financial status of  these corporations gives the lie  to Social Credit election charges  of N.D.P. fiscal ineptitude. The  present government, having  bitterly fought N.D.P. share  purchases originally, and having  pledged in the election to turn  back ownership to the private  sector, was now embarrassed,  by the success of these enterprises.  Six members of the newly  formed Kinsmen Club of Sechelt  and District recently attended the  25th Annual General Meeting of  the Kinsmen Rehabilitation Foundation of British Columbia held in  Vancouver. The organization,  publicised largely at the time of  the Mothers' March, was first  registered as a charitable health  and welfare agency on January 5.  1952. The constitution outlines  that the purpose of the Foundation is to raise funds for the  purpose of providing rehabilitation services to the disabled of  British Columbia on a provincial  basis and to work with government and other organizations to  improve the 'opportunities and  services available to the cirubled.  It had its beginning in t!:-..- polio  epidemic of 1944 and the miniit-  ment of the Kinsmen Clubs of  B.C. to the work of rehab'italion  began when, following ll-.- initiative of the Kinsmen of VaiK.-ouver.  they were to the foiv in >aising  large sums of moiu>\ ami initiating programs lor the tritgic number of people crippled by he disease. Needed hospital equipment  was provided, such as iron lungs  portable respirators, hydrotherapy baths, rocking beds, ambulance services and special nurses.  Eventually the discovery ol the  Salk vaccine removed polio as a  major health menaci. but the necessity for long-term treatment  and care of the epidemic's victims remained, and a serious  lack of rehabilitation services for  those disabled by crippling dis:  eases or accidents of all kinds was  then revealed. This unmet need  presented the ikwI great challenge for the FouDelation during  the early IMSO's and W��\. Thus  the program of the organization  was expanded to till the gaps in  rehabilitation lor nther disability  groups and now oilers a variety of  services to physicall> disabled adults and children.  Besides providing a wide-  ranging program ol patient services the Kinsmen Rehabilitation  Foundation pioneered in Canada  the use of sophisticated electronic  and technical aids tor those whose  disablement is extreme. Its work  in this field was recognised when  in 1975. the Foundation received  the Reader's Digest "Canadian  Rehabilitation Award".  For all your Carpets  T.

Gales lose composure in  games  >The   Peninsula  Gales   won   a  hockey game and lost one last  weekend against the Powell River  Inn team and conducted themselves in a manner which might  lead   one   to   believe   that   last  week's report of their maturity  ;a$ a hockey team was immature.  ;They   won   the   Saturday   night  game by a score of 8-3 with the  :'play being much more even than  ���the score would indicate.   Some  Sterling   work   by    goalie    Sam  CaSey being largely the difference.    Sunday "saw injuries and  isome  internal  dissension  cause  ; the Gales to play short several  flayers   and   the   result   was   a  ;7-5   loss.       Both   games   were  Tchippy   with   fifteen    penalties,  ; including a major and a match  ; misconduct to  Rick  Ion  of  the  f,Gales, _.jofin.-Saturday   night   and.  -���another     seventeen      penalties  /being called in Sunday's contest.  7   The Gales got off to a quick  'start Saturday night with  goals  )by McBrien and Lamb in the first  'ten minutes giving them a 2-0  lead   at   the   end   of   the   first  ���period.    Randy Legge  and Jim  ;;Gray   assisted   on   Lamb's   goal  ���\.while  Roy  McBrien  scored   unassisted.    In the second period  Stevens of Powell River got an  unassisted   goal    at    the    0.37  mark   before  the   Gales   roared  /back with four unanswered goals,  three by Butch Rodgers.   Two of  the three were unassisted and  Roy McBrien and Warren Dixon  drew assists on the other. Sandwiched by Rodgers' goals was a  second goal scored by Dave Lamb  with assists going to Ivan Dixon  and Jim Gray. The second period  ended with the Gales comfortably  ahead 6-1.  In the third period Powell  River narrowed the gap to 6-3  before Dave Lamb scored unassisted and defenceman Sean  Van Strepen scored assisted by  Rob Williams. The Powell River  goals were scored by Sauve and  Trousley.  At one point in the- second  period Gales goalie Sam Casey  played without his goal stick  for an entire minute and was  so brilliant that when he entered  ..theParthenon after the game.the^  Powell R|ver team accorded him  a standing ovation.  The Sunday game saw the  Gales get off-to a very ragged  start and by the end of the  first period they were down  4-2. Scoring for Powell River  were Hohn, Sauve, Polliner, and  Hawkins. Blake got one goal  back for the Gales on an unassisted tally and Rogers continued  his scoring exploits with a goal  assisted by Kennedy.  In  the second period of the .  Sunday game the Gales pulled  themselves together and played  more disciplined hockey and  scored three unanswered goals.  First Seals scored assisted by  Lamb and Blake; then McBrien  notched one assisted by Kennedy; and Newhort put the Gales  ahead 5-4. assisted by Orpin,  and that's how the second period  ended.  Powell River was finished,  however, and retook the lead  with two quick goals by Forsman  and Hohn within the first minute  of the final period. The quick  goals rattled the Gales and the  play degenerated into chippy,  scrappy hockey. Robertson of  Powell River scored the final  goal of the game with eight  minutes.to go and it never looked  as if the Gales could pull themselves together enough to  -threaten;:;. .        .���&:������'������..���.  Last week: the. Gales showed  that when they kept their composure and played disciplined  hockey they were a considerable  hockey team. But good hockey  teams acquire consistency  which comes through discipline.  And consistency and discipline  were what they lacked this  week.

Step up to fitness  Polarity Ski-time Tribute to Harry Wynn  by Fran Berger  Strictly for curiosity's sake,  how would you like to take out one  minute between stores while  you're shopping and find out  what your blood pressure is?  Or how about spending six minutes climbing up and down two  steps in time to music and  then taking your pulse to see how  your heart handles this minimal  increase   in   physical   excertion?  Blood pressure simply defined  is the force of the blood against  the walls of the larger arteries.  It is greatest at the moment  blood is pumped by the heart.  Blood pressure goes up when you  are excited or afraid, or when  exercising, so the heart is pumping faster and the blood is  therefore moving faster and exerting more pressure on the walls  ofthe arteries,-and it goes down  when you are relaxed or sleeping.  These up and'down changes are  considered normal. But if blood  pressure is high all the time,  a condition doctors call hypertension, it may be serious because the constant pressure takes  the "stretchiness" out of the  arterial walls, and the heart must  work harder to pump enough  blood.  The Canada Fitness Step Test  is a simple, safe, self-administered test designed to assess the  strength and-endurance of the  heart, lungs,: a��d circulatory  system. Its purpose is not to  diagnose, but to serve as a  general indicator of cardiovascu  lar endurance, which is the ability  or lack of ability to engage in  sustained, vigorous activity,  and which is perhaps the single  most important physical fitness  factor. The step-up, step-down  exercise is performed to a pleasant musical tempo adjusted  according to age, and upon completion of two three-minute  phases of stepping the pulse is  taken to determine the body's  response to continuous movement. From a Physical Fitness  Evaluation Chart, you can compare your heart rate with that  recommended for someone of  your age and thereby determine  your own fitness level.  Take a "Step Up to Fitness"  and come to the Fitness Service  office upstairs in Whitaker House  anytime between 2:00 p.m. and  4:00 p.m. on Thursdays, and  Joy Smith and Evans Hermon,  R.N., will be available to help  you test yourself and evaluate  the results. You are sure to  find it interesting and it takes  only 15 minutes.  And to let you find out your  blood pressure, in addition to it  being taken just before you do  the step test, Evans Hermon  and volunteers from the Registered Nurses' Association will  hold a Blood Pressure Clinic in  the Trail Bay Mall every Friday  from 2:00 p.m. - 4:00 p.m. So  take a break - and listen to  your heart! Please call the Fitness Service at 885-3611 for more  detailed information.  sJ.,��  Si  W  1  ���"���"���������"���%%%%%%T��?*.��T��%-*M  3a^S^J  S*%&*  FRESH   DAILY     ^jtfS-  C.F.V.

He studied all Eastern  healing practices - acupuncture,  reflexology, Egyptian Hermetic,  Indian Ayuvedic - and all Western  healing - American Indians,  Christianity, Osteopathy, Chiropractic and Naturopathy. He  then founded an East-West  synthesis known as Polarity.  Polarity Yoga is the science  of balancing the life energy  to equalize its flow on both sides  of the body. Polarity currents  link the inner energy of the body  to the outer fields, where interruptions cause tension and pain  and what is called "dis-ease".  Polarity therapy includes the use  of positive and negative contacts with the right and left  hands to alleviate tensions or  blocks and re-establish the flow  of the vital energy through these  currents. Polarity techniques include food awareness, clear  thinking, and body readings.  Body readings are done with the  person standing to check whether  their shoulders are even, hips  are level, etc.  Evans Hermon is bringing  Sharon Coulthurst, a Vancouver  based Polarity Yoga teacher to  the Kindergarten room of Roberts  Creek Elementary School for a  one-day workshop on Saturday,  November 26th, from 1:00 to  5:00 p.m. Anyone interested,  is invited to attend, and all  that you need to bring is a yoga  mat or blanket or a sleeping bag  to lie on. The fee is $4.00 and  should be paid in advance. Registration may be done by phoning  the Fitness Service at 885-3611.  Soccer  KGB  **m����mmmmmmmmmmmm&  tide tables  Tae.

Just five minutes after  the opening kickoff Breben  Skyte scored on a hard drive from  the 18 yard line to put Wakefield  on the scoreboard. Good gbal-  tending by Jim Burns helped  keep the Raiders in this 1-0  position for the remainder of the  half.  ..Wakefield put on the pressure  in the second half and scored 3  more unanswered goals. The  first came from Ken Casey on a  good breakthrough. Walter Tripp  - scored the second goal of the  half after beating two defenders  and Alan Nickerson came up with  a picture goal heading in a long  pass from the corner. Once  again Jim Burns played well in  the Raiders net and was also  successful in stopping a penalty  shot from Walter Tripp.  Next game is noon Sunday,  November 27th against the Sechelt Chiefs at the Reserve field.  : : Gibsons and District Chamber of Commerce.

Mary Cassin  Back in the early 40's Gibsons  was just a village. The road  was not yet through to Port  Mellon. The only access was by  water or air, except. for a trail  which few used. There were  few phones.  This is where Harry Wynn  comes in, bless him. As well as  running the telephone exchange  he also had the only taxi at that  time. With no phone and no  private vehicle one depended  solely on Harry and his wife  for grocery shopping etc. I may  say that between them they did  a great job.  He was always interested in  people. I can remember one  time when we were still living at  Port Mellon while putting through a long-distance call, his taking  the trouble to remark, "I must  congratulate you on the birth  of your son Martin.''  Another member of the Wynn  family I knew well was Mrs.  Riley who was a near neighbour  of ours. She was related by a  previous marriage to old Mr.  Wynn, having come out from  England to act as housekeeper  which ultimately led to marriage.  What I most remember about  her was her birds. Besides  quite a sizeable aviary in her  front verandah, she also had  some pet bantams, which were in  and out of her house.  She used to hold quite a few  parties and it was said she was  friendly with some of the tug  boat captains and would signal  to them with a flag to let them  know when to call on her, so that  the half mast could mean something quite different. She later  married into the Gibson family  and the last I heard of her was  in my lawyers office and they  were getting a divorce after only  a short time married. The lawyer  remarked, I remember, that he  thought they had each married  for money and were disappointed.  Which I considered to be uncharitable.

Among other things the Wynn's  acted as a sort of unlicenced  information bureau, free of  charge of course, like so many  things they did, which brings to  my mind the occasion when  Tryg and I got married.  Tryg Iversen who was superintendent of the mill at the time  and to whom I was engaged,  was to have come to Vancouver to  marry me but could not get  away. So, I had to come to Port  Mellon and from there we had to  make it to Gibsons, hopefully to  find a J.P. or someone to marry  us. Well this is where Harry  came in.  We grabbed a fish boat and  sailed to Gibsons where we first  contacted the Heino's for witnesses. Charlie Heino worked  for Tryg at the mill, we then went  on to Harry's to enquire about a  J.P.  Harry however, had a better  idea he said, and sent us to the  United Church minister Mr.  Bushfield who was gardening at  the time and looked more like  a farmer than a clergyman.  He asked what faith we were and  we told him one Lutheran and  one Anglican. "That's all right,"  he said, "just wanted, to know  what to put in the form.''  He was totally unprepared of  course and Tryg remarked afterwards he wondered if we were  legally married, as half way  through the service Mr. Bushfield went up to the attic to get  some reference book or other!  The Heino's put up an impromptu reception for us afterwards,  quite noble of them I thought.  Then back tx> the haywire mill,  which was so run-down people  marvelled how Tryg was able to  run it, patched up like that,  only later' was new machinery  installed. Starting marriage  with Tryg so preoccupied was no  picnic. After Tryg's death we  moved first to Vancouver and  then Gibsons where the first  phones were soon to be installed,  which were ofthe crank type.  Later we returned to Vancouver  again, arid back once more to  Gibsons. This time to find it  much advanced to what it was  before when we first' came.  Now there was the long-awaited  road to Port Mellon among other  things. And the Wynn's who  were quite an institution were  still around.  I was distressed to hear when  Harry was ready for retirement  the telephone company would  not grant him a pension on  account of some technicality,  too far out of the city limits or  something, so that he kept working longer than he should, but  always with a cheerful smile.  I was surprised to see him working in the Co-op one day. After  all his years of public service he  deserved a pension if anyone did.  Mrs. Wynn passed away and the  last I heard of Harry he was in  a home for the aged.

ROBYN ALLEN  "The winter club should  be open for the kids, there  should be a swimming pool,  which they are presently  building. There is nothing  for teens, you've gotta find  your own recreation which  isn't a bad thing but isn't  a good thing either. We  should encourage them,  you either have to go to  Sechelt or Vancouver. If  your kids want to go skating  you gotta go to Sechelt  .which is,15 miles, 30 miles;  return .from Gibsons arid  most people on the Coast  work shift work. They  should have something in  Gibsons or Roberts Creek."  JAMIE NUOTIO  "Generally there is  enough recreation. Perhaps  a "cultural centre" would  be good so different entertainers could come up and  performers and so on. I  think it would utilize the  environment, there's nothing  else to do. It depends on  the individual."  TERRY THOMSON  "Not for the younger  people. No, I think they  need more for the younger  people to do. There's several  different thing's I can think  of off hand that I would  like to see up here, like the  swimming pool which they  just started. I don't know,  just recreation for the kids,  more than anything. The  kids don't seem to have  anything to do."  ALMORGAN  "I think there should be  an amusement park with  rides like ' rollercoasters,  ferris wheels and all the  types of rides they have at  fairs. They should have a  park area with a variety of  animals and also a swimming  pool. There should also be  a roller rink and the winter  club should be open to the  public more often. That  would be fun for people."  MISS BROWN  "I think there should be  more" recreation .'* fp'r'V the  youngsters around ;here,  particularly for the teenagers.

There are lots in  Gibsons but nothing . in  Sechelt or Madeira Park and  there should be more things  for kids to do at night and in  the daytime. There should  be a jogging class set up  somewhere, must more  indoor and outdoor things,  especially in Sechelt, there's  lots to do in Gibsons."

Mary Cassin  Some of the first people I  met at Port Mellon back in the  40's were the Blains, Lome  and Amy. My husband Tryg  Iversen thought very highly indeed of Lome. 1 think he felt  the mill would not be run without  men like him.  He was very inventive and had  many ideas how to improve the  mill. Believe me it needed it  at that time.  Tryg had some good ideas himself and it was his father who  was brought out here from Norway as an expert to.build some  ofthe first mills in Canada. Tryg  and Lome were good buddies  and they had planned to go into  partnership later, had my hus-  YOStfl'S  ! RESTAURANT  Specialists  in  Chinese &  Western  Cuisine  Sunnycrest  Shopping Plaza  Gibsons 886-8015  band lived. They were talking  of starting a ski camp at Garibaldi I remember among other  things.  I told Tryg he would have to  live to the age of about 300 to  carry out all his schemes. Later  after my husband's death when  we moved to Gibsons I got to  know Amy's parents Mr. and  Mrs. Ray Adams quite well.  Mrs. Adams used to entertain  quite a bit. 1 remember going  there to Bingo one day, given in  aid of the Firemen's Auxiliary  and actually winning to my surprise as I scarcely ever win anything.   ,  Later I gave a tea in aid of the  firemen when we lived where  the Post Office is now. I have  a picture in my living room which  is a constant reminder of Mrs.  Adams who admired it so much.  She jokingly said one day, "If  you go first y��u can will that  picture to me." Tea For Two,  the picture's title, has been much  admired over the years though  who the artist was is still a  mystery. The signature may have  got covered by the frame. I  don't know, anyway it is a nice  picture.  Not so long ago there was a  party at the Bill Davis's for  ladies who had been at Port  Mellon thirty years previously.  It was quite a reunion and I  enjoyed meeting all those ladies  again. I was surprised how many  were able to get together that  were still around, and 1 was,  struck by how little some of  them had seemed to change.  They should have get-togethers  like that more often I think.  I hear Lome is running for  Mayor of Gibsons., He would be  most suitable I think and it is  high time he had such recognition. This would, I am convinced, have made Tryg very  happy. He always considered  Lome one of his right hand men  and expected him to go far.

Dear Sirs:  The plan to shelve.the Gibsons  Marina Development is a grave  .mistake and we ask you to reverse this decision.  - We can vouch for the following  ���information being avid boaters  foryears.  1. Reports show that more boat  sales than ever have taken place  Iwithin the last two years, with the  ^majority going into larger vessels.  2. Marina space is so limited in  Vancouver and districts that it  takes your .name over VA years  on a waiting list to get into certain  .marinas. It has been said people  would gladly store their boats in  Gibsons if space was available.  3. Take a look at our present  Government dock now, it is so  full that boats are packed four  abreast, which is a poor looking  affair  for   anyone  coming   into  For all  the fallen  Editor:  Another Remembrance Day  has passed, and although we  honor the memory of our warrior  dead, as we should, it seems to  me that we tend to forget the  many others wo died because  of the wars. The millions of  Jews who died in Hitler's death  camps; the civilians who died in  bombings on land and sinkings  at sea; the thousands of Japanese  who died in atomic blasts, the  civilians of Korea and Viet Nam -  all victims of wars, and the list  staggers the imagination.  The enclosed poem was written  in 1929 after a particularly vivid  dream, and now, in view of the  later events, seems almost prophetic, but if you think it worthy  of publication, I offer it in memory of ALL who died in war.  E.R. East  Gibsons from out of town, to try  and dock overnight or purchase  supplies.  4. If you noticed the price of  gasoline, which is the same for  cars, 88$, you will know why most  Vancouverites and boaters are  now coming into Howe Sound instead of far away places. I cite  for example Plumper Cove, over  a hundred boats per weekend  all summer, Centre Bay on  Gambier, full of boaters, to say  nothing of the long string of  boats tied to the log booms all  the way up to Port Mellon. Next  year there will be more.  5. Our own Smitty's Marina,  is full to capacity and states he  has a waiting list, and can not  accommodate boats over 28 feet.  Why w^ait for the economy to  return, now is the time to act  and create jobs, and since these  are for Canadians who cares if  the American dollar is worth  $1.10? We will be inviting them  in to spend those dollars when  the Marina is complete.  It is a well known fact that  Gibsons' only facility and future  tourist attraction is its waterfront, so now is the time to develop, especially with Ottawa only  requiring detailed analysis of the  traffic pattern which can be predicted, and we could be on:  Ottawa's 1978 budget. We say  now is the time. Don't stop the  Gibsons Marina.  B. Kennett  K. A. Crosby  Homecoming  Editor:  Calling all Chippewayans home  to North Bay.

S. Davison  Chippewa Secondary School  R��C��MLP��  Editor:  A sense of justice obligates  me to reply to your editorial of  November 15.  The current furore over the  "alleged" misdeeds ofthe RCMP  has gone well beyond the bounds  of commonsense.  The protagonists in this ridiculous confrontation would be wise  to stop their dog-eat-dog antics  and apply a little logic to their  arguments. They would surely  then conclude that'these "activities" which our law officers are  being accused of are not at all at  odds with the kind of challenges  they must face each and every  day.  I pose the following questions  to first the media, and also to  her majesty's loyal opposition,  and to Mr. Ed Broadbent:  1. If you were Chief of Staff  defending this nation against an  aggressor, would you advertise  your strategy to the enemy?  Would you not use subterfuge  and espionage to win your objectives? Would you not take  advantage of your enemy's  weaknesses? Would you hesitate to use your enemy's weapons  against him. Would you not  deem it your duty to protect your  country at any cost?  2. If you were responsible for  the internal security of your  country, would yOu close your  eyes to the machinations of evildoers? Would you fail to keep  close watch on any organization  suspected of anti-social activities? Would you permit subversive elements the leeway to  wreck havoc on our social or  economic life? Would you hesitate to use any and all means  necessary to thwart the objectives  of your nation's enemies?  If your answer is an unequivocal 'yes', then it stands to reason  that you are unfit to pass judgement on the legally appointed  guardians of our social and economic traditions.  Think about it. Then give our  law enforcement agencies the  chance to do their job. They are  fighting a war!  Lawrence B. Frederick  Park puzzle    &*�� P��t�� Navy League  The Army of the Dead  byE.  I dreamed I stood upon a hill;  ;���, Dead poplars rose against the sky.  And all about I saw the great  Of Fame who lived in years gone by.  I saw the tall and haggard form  Of Lincoln, with his gentle eyes,  ... And that great heart that beat with love  And deemed a friend the greatest prize;  And yonder Corsica's great son.  Grazing into some unseen lands  As firm with folded arms he stood  And dreamed of Empire 'neath his hands.  The Father of his Country stood  Near Cromwell, with great Richelieu,  The poet Milton, and the Maid  Of France, who's name the angels knew.  I saw the great of many lands,  Poet and statesman, king and maid,  Soldier and patrior, and all  Gazed on the scene below them laid.  There was a road that wound about  The hill, beneath the poplars dead,  And marching on in ranks there came  A silent Army, angel-led.  Men in khaki, men in grey,  Foes were marching side by side;  Men who came from out the desert,  Men who sailed upon the tide,  Boys with wings upon their tunics,  Eyes that shone with youthful pride;  Those whom death had called in battle  Marching onward side by side.  Women, too, were there, and children,  Tiny babes in arms who wept;  Old and feeble men and women  Who with tottering footsteps crept;  Those whom Vfat had made his victims -  On the great procession swept.  R. East  Marching, marching, coming, passing,  Coming as far as eye could see.  Voices rose from those about me  Crying, "Whence, oh whence come ye?"  And their cry arose in answer,  ' 'From a world at war come we.  Brother is at war with brother,  Kinsman seeks his kinsman's life;  Nation after nation rises,  Joining in the awful strife.  All the world is mad with battle;  All the earth is sodden red;  We are coins the nations barter,  We, the Army ofthe Dead."  Then I saw another figure,  One who stood alone and still,  One whose eyes were filled with sorrow,  Gazing, gazing down the hill.  In his feet and hands were nail-prints,  And his brow was rent and torn  Where the hands of Roman soldiers  Pressed the crown of cruel thorn.  As he saw the Army coming,  From a world of war and hate  Where the nations locked in struggle  For supremacy of state;  As he gazed upon the Army,  Those whose lives had paid the price,  He who once in love and pity  Was a willing sacrifice -  He who blessed the little children  As within, his arms they crept -  E'en as o'er Jerusalem  He lifted up his voice, and wept.  And the great of fame and story  Bowed their heads before his woe  As he wept above the Army  Passing, passing there below.  Editor:  The Howe Sound Greenbelt  Soames Park Heritage Committee  is concerned and puzzled by Mr.  Jack White's appraisal of the  Soames field property as stated  in Coast News issue of Nov. 15.  Certainly, his estimate is based  on a real estate developer's  probable subdivision. Surely  his solution of the $100,000  difference between the asking  price and the appraisal value  must have been given with  "tongue-in-cheek". It would  seem to be a contradiction that  when the market value is appraised at only $130,000, one corner  of the field can still be sold for  $100,000.  A referendum to purchase the  property for greenbelt waterfront could in no way include a  plan for residential development  by either a regional or provincial  parks department to recoup part  of the original purchase price.  Nowhere else on this shore of  Howe Sound is there such an  attractive beach and swimming  area still accessible to the public  and available for purchase. Even  with Soames Road access to the  beach, if the waterfront is developed with 14 houses, the public use of this beach will be  greatly curtailed.  The price may seem high - but  not disproportionally if compared  with the rise in price in waterfront lots in the area over the last  10 to 15 years.  If planners before now had  only been farsighted enough,  we would not now be faced with  trying to preserve some of our  precious shoreline.  While we still have the opportunity, let us try to keep some  greenbelt waterfront for the  future generations.  Mrs. G. Hay, Sec'y  Howe Sound Greenbelt  Soames Park Heritage Committee  Editor:  This here looks like a mighty  interesting winter judging by the  newspapers of November 8th.  Folks in these here parts like to  get things riled up right off the  bat I see. Fighting dirty already  too I see. Just what I like. Course  it's only tongue-fights now but  should get real good later on.  Looks like Tyner and White are  ganging up on Paterson, that  should let a few more people in  in on that one.. Metcalfe and  Metzler sounds like a good one.  The ferry workers against the  citizens, I hope I don't miss that  one!  I reckon these hard working  people that are getting cut off  from making a living must be  pretty mad. The photographs on  the front page is people that want  to get into that one I reckon.  The one I want to invite some  of my relatives over to see is the  lady bulldozer fighter. That's a  new one on me.  That Christian fighter, Cruckshank, he ain't going to get no-  wheres. He ain't the first feller  I knew of that wanted to close  the churches and put the clergy  to work. But it can't be done,  not until the good Lord gives the  okay, and I reckon the Creator  just loves people so much, as  long as one persons wants a  church to go to and a pastor to  smile at them, why there ain't no  power on earth is going to shut  down that there church.  Talking about the good Lord,  I'm going to be praying for the  two that are trying to pick a  fight with Mr. Trudeau. That's  yourself, sir, and Mr. Matthews.  1 reckon there must have been  over a million people voted for  Trudeau in the last election,  and if they all show up somebody's going to get hurt real  bad.

As has been publicized many  times of late, our local branch of  the Navy League is the moving  force behind the drive to build  an activity centre for the organized youth of our community -  an extremely worthwhile project.  Membership in the Navy League  affords adults (particularly  parents of teenagers) the unique  chance to participate either  directly, or as an auxiliary, in  the promotion, organization and  operation of league functions,  and to provide practical guidance  and training for our Cadets and  Wrenettes.  A one dollar fee buys a one  year membership but additional  contributions are requested not  only to assist funding of the  youth centre, but to help defray  the costs of uniforms, equipment and essential supplies.  Please, therefore, even if you  do not wish to actively participate, donate generously and  support the Sunshine Coast  Branch of the Navy League of  Canada.  A. Burton  Chairman.

The results show people prefer a country style of living to  the trend towards a more urban  type of community by a margin  of 2 to 1 (141-69). People felt  population growth should be  limited although the split is  closer (109-86).  Surprisingly people opted  strongly for larger lot sizes, that  is, greater than 'A acre (173-35).  People are opposed to multiple  family dwellings (186-35).  Definitely, they do not want a  public sewer system (169-47).  There is a general dissatisfaction with the water system, particularly in South Pender Harbour as reflected in the vote for  an enlarged water system (109-  84). People are opposed to an  expansion of arterial roads by  100 to 71.  The Ratepayer stand on Canoe  Pass was endorsed with 168  against and 45 favouring the development, a rate of nearly 4 to 1.  The citizens want a mixed community rather than a recreational-  residential community by 2 to 1.  This confirmed the result from  the rural versus urban question.

Tourism was ranked third followed by construction and manilj;  facturing, which people viewer!  as minor importance.  People endorsed the Goliattf  Bay project by a wide margin  (129-46). Frequent comments'  and concerns were voiced on the!  need for pollution safeguard^  and guarantees, howver.        '���'*\  Everyone definitely wants les&  control of what they do on theft  own land (155-41). They waft*  limited separation applying only  to major nuisances but with  small scale business, industry  and agriculture permitted to continue at large. This alternative  was supported by 154 people  against 54 wanting strict separation. Seven independent sotlfe  didn't want any separation of land  use.  To control pollution 192 favdu^  red a ban on dumping effluent  into harbour waters, 167 wanted  pump-out facilities required *at  all marinas, and 138 want largdr  lot sizes in new subdivisions:  A minimum lot size of 1 acre Is  preferred to a sewer system  dumping into the sea (176-23). v,x'  Finally, we could only find tW6  people who don't want the garbage dump. r"  As the first sampling of this  kind ever taken in the Pender  Harbour area the questionnaire  results are being taken very  seriously, influencing the programmes of all candidates in the  current election campaign "aS  well as the Settlement Plan Committee. * ';  It is so popular in fact that We  have been receiving a steady  stream of calls from Egmont aiirJ  Middlepoint angry because  those areas were left out.  The reason no questionnaires  were sent to those areas is 'of  course that they're not in the  territory covered by the Pender  Harbour Settlement Plan and the  questionnaire was designed "to  conincide with the Settlement  Plan. Egmont will be drawnmg  up a settlement plan of its own  in the future and the Ratepayers  will certainly make the questionnaire available at that time-'1f  the area wants it. Middlepoiht  is a little different - it's not really  big enough for its own'plan'artd  some residents iike John Donnelly would appear to have a good  argument for saying it should  have been included in the Pender Harbour Plan. ''--  If other residents feel this way  they are invited to phone Ratepayer president Joe Harrison  (883-9958) to discuss the matter.  It's not too late to make th'e  change if that's what people  want.

Bill Griffiths cleared this  land  when he built his house more  than  forty  years  ago,   and   although the house grew, so did  the trees.   You can still see the  inlet just down below, and Bill's  38. ft. gillnetter Thais, riding at  anchor, but mostly you're aware  of,, the forest,   and the  way  it  stands,    silently,    making    the  house seem smaller than it is.  r*Bill Griffiths knows this place.  He knows it the way some people  know a city neighbourhood, but  instead of streets and buildings,  pill knows the bays, the mountains,   the   inlets,   the   narrows  and the islands that make it up.  Of course he should by now, he's  b,een here since 1920, ever since  he arrived in the place with his  family.   It was just a matter of  luck that they came up this particular inlet.  They were heading  south to Vancouver in his father's  old, fishing boat, and it started  blowing just off Scotch Fir Point,  so.they turned in.  , Bill was a boy then, and he  had a perfect place for his boyhood explorations.     "I   helped  build my first rowboat," he says,  "and: I   built   the   second   one  myself."   With them, he rowed  all over the place, and today he  can still tell you anything you'd  c/ire to know about the area.   He  knows where all the old logging,  shows were, and even the few  .locomotives   that   ended   up   in  ,the   middle-of-nowhere   creeks.  .He can tell you about the brickyard in Storm Bay, or the salteries  that   used   to   operate   around  .there,  or  the  gold  mines  that  ;didn't  pan  out,   or  where   the  Indian people lived before they  moved to Sechelt. And he knows,  too, where the clam beds  are,  -and all the good fishing spots,  -.i-Bill's   been   a   fisherman   all  -his life.   He started fishing com-  rimercially in 1923 when he and a  friend   rowed   north   to   Cape  . Mudge for the summer.    They  .fished bluebacks and moved into  ,an  empty  shack there,  and  at  ���the end of the season he came  .home with his first paycheque -  .$4&,   During the next few years  he worked in a variety of places,  ;either fishing or working in the  salteries.    He tells the story of  how they used to pack herring  near Nanaimo: "We put them  into boxes that held two hundred  pounds. One man loaded with  the shovel and another fellow  tromped them down with his rubber boots. It probably wasn't  sanitary, but the people who ate  them weren't there to see."  Those years were full of hard  work for him, but as Bill says:  "If I added all the weeks or  months together that I worked  for wages it wouldn't total a  year." He did try working in  the woods for a spell, just to  see what it was like. He got a  job in Menzies Bay, working for  the Bloedel company. Three men  got killed in the three months  he was logging, and that was  enough. He quit. Too dangerous. "The men who ran the  donkeys or worked on the boom,  some of them lived to get white  whiskers," he says. Bill went  back fishing.  Then, in 1930, a new school  .�����-������,'  Religion all but gone?  .by The Office of Church In  Society, The United Church of  Canada, 85 St. Clair Ave. E.  Toronto, Ont.  Is religion all bat gone?  Dr. Daniel Cappon, a pro-  "- fessor" in environmental studies  |'at York University, Toronto, at  >a recent international conference  ��in New Zealand suggested that  'the United Nations convene a  'meeting of the hundred best  ^intellects in the world to discuss  ,'the purpose of human existence.  ^He has explained why he is calling for such a meeting: . "With  ^every ideology wavering, religion  /all but gone, science unable to  jgive the answers to why, no one  ican tell us any more what it's  ^all about."  ? Really, professor? Surely you  Recognize that it is of the nature  of an ideology to waver, for it  is a response of emotion and  mind, a matter of anxiety and  aspiration, with respect to a  broad pattern of circumstance  which is constantly changing.  Only for the totalitarian mind  do ideologies not waver.  "Religion all but gone?" Perhaps in some countries, but it  still seems to have an effective  life in Canada and to be showing  signs of becoming stronger than  it has been in the recent past.  teacher came to work at the  Egmont school. Her- name was  Lela, and she was from the  prairies. A friend wrote her  about the school, and Lela recalls: "I could not understand  from her letter how it was that  you would have to go by boat to  the store. I thought you should  be able to go around somewhere. I found out you had to  row." Four years later, she and  Bill were married. They have  two grown-up children now, and  several of Lela's former pupils  have since married inro the  family. They still live in the  same house they built when they  were first starting up, and as  Lela says: "This house is like  Topsy - it just grew and grew.''  Both Lela and Bill are the sort  pf people who .never tire.wof  learning about thing's. On his  fishing trips north, Bill started  taking an interest in geology.  He began collecting every sort  of rock imaginable, and teaching  himself as much as he could  about them. He also collected  any old bottles he could find,  and the glass net floats he's  picked up over the years almost  fill their living room. Bill still  has a keen interest in how things  work, and lately he's taken to  putting steam engines together.  Lela developed an interest in  sea   shells   and   during   those  first years in Egmont the fishermen around there would bring  her different specimens they'd  found. A professor at a coastal  biological station gave her help  with her studies, and even lent  her a dredge to help dig up more  shells. When an American fellow  wrote the professor enquiring  about abalone shells, he turned  the letter over to Lela, and  that started her corresponding  with shell collectors all over  the world. At one time she  traded shells with people from  Austrialia, Sumatra, Florida,  England, South Africa and Japan.  In 1967, with years of experience  in the subject, she published  a book called The Intertidal  Univalves of British Columbia.  It's part of the provincial government's nature series, and still a  standard reference text about  shells in this part of the world.  Egmont has grown a bit since  their first days there, but you  wouldn't suspect it from sitting  in the living room of the Griffiths's house. The loudest sound  is still the antique clock that  ticks away up on the shelf. Times  have changed in their community  since Pete Sausson, the blacksmith, used to chug down the  inlet in his steam-powered boat.  And the times have changed too,  since they built the school. It  cost them $150 for materials,'  and volunteer labour put it together. But a lot of the original  people are still in the area - the  Rays, the Vaughans, the Silveys  and the Jeffries. Many of them  must still remember the parties  they used to have - when Roy  West was the caller, and they  danced the quadrilles and two-  steps, the polkas, and the waltzes,  for the older people.  Tucked away up the quiet  inlet, Bill and Lela Griffiths  still live on the land that Bill's  father settled fifty years ago.  Lela's pretty well given up  trading shells now - it got to be  too much of a chore to wrap up  the packages. And Bill's not  doing as much fishing as he used  to, this next year may be the  last time he goes out. It's doubtful, though, that Bill and Lela  will ever retire in the fullest sense  of the word. Both of them are  still fulltime students of the  world around them. Or as Bill  would say: "I quit school when  I was pretty young but I never  stopped learning. I hope I never  will."  It's hard =tp think Jjh'at^JBiii  has anything* to worry atfout on  that score. He and Lela will  keep on learning as long as  there's something out there to  instruct them.

The Thompson Oil Port Inquiry  may be coming to the Sunshine  Coast when it reconvenes next  spring, according to Pender Harbour Ratepayers' president Joe  Harrison.  The Ratepayers have teamed  up with Local 16 of the United  Fishermen and Allied Workers  Union to request that the commission hold one of its community  hearings in Pender Harbour.  "The commission has tested  opinion in a number of coast  communities such as Namu and  Steveston, but so far there have  been no hearings scheduled for  the Malaspina-Howe Sound  area," Harrison said. "We  think Pender Harbour would be  the logical site because it is  central and because it has the  largest fishing fleet."  The Thompson Inquiry, which  has been studying the need for  and possible effects of a supertanker port on the west coast  since summer, was recessed  November 9 but is expected to  reconvene in January to study a  renewed proposal by the Kitimat  Oil Port Coalition.  "The Kitimat proposal affects  Pender Harbour very directly in  that fishing is our largest industry and the potential spill  zone includes many of the most  important areas fished by our  fleet," Harrison said.  "As far as the spill threat being  over in our area," he added,  ' 'the Sunshine Coast is well within the spill zone from Cherry  Point and there are Alaska  supertankers delivering there on  a regular basis now. It would be  nice to have something to say  about that."  Organizations and individuals  supporting the Ratepayer-  UFAWU request are asked to  write Andrew Thompson, Commissioner, West Coast Oil Ports  Inquiry, 8th Floor, 549 Howe  Street, Vancouver.

A service to the news media  by The Office of Church in  Society, The United Church of  Canada, 85 St. Clair Ave. ��.,  Toronto, Ont. M4T 1M8.  Canada used to be a welfare  state. It isn't anymore.  That may surprise those who  think that today's poor have a  pipeline to society's wealth, a  pipeline that gushes with welfare  cheques, food vouchers, rent  supplements, unemployment  insurance, and family allowances.  If that's "welfare", then certainly this is the first welfare  state. Only in this century,  since the arrival of income taxes,  have governments ��� gathered  money from the community to  redistribute to the poor.  But is that really welfare?  Prior to the industrial age,  before the time when people  flocked to the cities, governments didn't have to hand out  money. Even without handouts,  no one had to starve or freeze  if they were able-bodied. The  land, and its resources, was  available to a greater or lesser  extent to anyone.  In its forests, the community  had a suprlus of firewood; in  its streams, water; on its grasslands, grazing; and enough space  that everyone could have some  kind of a home and garden.  Barring laziness or physical  handicap, most people could  survive without dependence on  charity.  That world of the past could  legitimately be called a welfare  state - a state of communal  ^ ell-being.   But that's no longer  'IF WE KNOW YOU'RE COMING WE'LL BAKE A CAKE^\__  Given 24 hours notice, we will be happy to furnish FREE of charge, <"2��* ^>   $&* IsC^-  true in Canada.  The wealth of our total community still depends on the land.  Its forests, streams, minerals,  and fields provide food for its  people, raw materials for industries, and energy. But the urban  poor have been cut off, from that  communal wealth.  They get filed vertically, in  high-rise low-income housing,  or cramped into rented rooms in  old houses. They can't life on  the crumbs from the tables of  the rich - even our throwaways  are now sanitarily crushed, compressed, packaged, shredded, or  buried. They own no land, and  have no free access to the products of the land. If there is  open land near them, it is zealously protected by local governments for recreation of the total  populace (and possibly for future  development); the poor may  gather neither food nor fuel from  it.  Similarly, the wider natural  resources of the country are no  longer there for the taking. The  riches of Crown (or communally-  owned) land are available only  by negotiated agreement with  the government, on behalf of  the citizens.  This is not a plea to roll back  the clock, nor is it advocating  unrestricted     plunder    of    our  natural wealth by opportunists,  be they rich or poor, individuals  or corporations.  It merely points out a state of  affairs in which the urban poor  have only two alternatives open  to them.  Thev can steal - a method of  helping themselves that society  considers criminal and punishes.  Or they can beg - asking  governments, the custodians of  our communal wealth, for handouts.  It's difficult to describe that  sort of state as welfare. But  there is another, option, if we  have the will to , implement it  they can be genuinely .aided by  creative involvement . in the  political and economic processes  of the nation - and ;the fruit  that would accrue, in a "just  society."

Two Piano     Federal comment  concert  The first ITwo Piano Concern  will be held ih the Sechelt Eleme-  mentary School. Gymnasium on  Saturday, November 26th at  8:00 p.m. The concert is sponsored by the Sunshine Coast  Music, Drama, and Dance Festival Committee, proceeds to  their Festival Grand Piano Fund.  Performing artists will be Aletta  Gilker of Roberts Creek and  Bunny Shupe, also of Roberts  Creek. Also on the program will  be David Fromager with saxophone solos.  The second of the Two Piano  Concerts will be held at Madeira  Park Elementary School Auditorium on Saturday, December  3rd, 8:00 p.m. At this concert  Aletta Gilker, Bunny Shupe and  David Fromager will be joined by  Paul Cram on the flute.  Mrs. Alleta Gilker is a well  known music teacher on the Sunshine Coast, and is one of the  founders of the Sunshine Coast  Music, Drama, and Dance Festival.  Mrs. Shupe received her  musical education in Scotland.  A former music teacher on the  Sunshine Coast, she was one of  David Fromager's early piano  teachers. Now Bunny is well  known as an accompanist. She  is accompanist for the Sunshine  Chorists as well as many solo  .performers on the Sunshine  Coast.  David Fromager is a graduate  of Elphinstone Senior Secondary  School. Last spring he received  his Bachelor of Music from  U.B.C. He plans to continue  his music education. David is  equally accomplished on piano  and on saxophone.  Paul Cram is in his last year of  the Bachelor of Music course at  U.B.C. Paul will be playing one  of his own flute compositions at  the Madeira Park concert.  by   Stuart   Leggatt,   M.P.   New  Westminster.  In Sudbury, Ontario you either  work in the mines or you don't  work at all.  International Nickel literally  put the city on the map. Residents now fear the giant multinational is planning to take it  right off again.  INCO last month shook the  one-industry town with announced layoffs of upwards of 2200  workers. Similar layoffs in  Thompson, Manitoba and Port  Colborne will bring the total  to about 4000 men and women.  The company has served notice  that what it calls a "depressed  market" for nickle will lead to  further workforce reductions in  the near future.  The market is not so depressed,  however, to have stopped INCO  from making $100 million in  profits in the last year alone!  What is really happening is  that the foreign-owned corporation is beginning to wind down its  Canadian operations in favour of  new overseas facilities.  New INCO mines in Indonesia  and New Caladonia will allow  the company to continue to reap  enormous profits without having  to face the "inconveniences"  of a unionized workforce or environmental legislation.  Not that INCO hasn't done  very nicely in Canada.  An obliging Liberal government in Ottawa has allowed the  company to defer $378 MILLION  in taxes owing the Canadian  people. That sum would put a  lot of our unemployed to work  this winter.  In last March's federal budget,  the federal government gave  INCO another package of "incentives" worth $10 million.  ��� Well, INCO showed incentive  all right. They took a let of that  money, added another $70 million  the Export Development Corporation gave away, and opened new  facilities abroad.  Those new nickel mines will  begin competing with Canadian  ore in 1978. Only INCO knows  how many more jobs wil! be lost  then!  No matter where it goes in  the world, it seems that the  company gets the profits and its  employees get the shaft.  Secondary industry could have  saved Sudbury. It could have insured that even when the mines  had been exhausted there would  have been something left for the  community.  In this regard, the Conservatives are no better than the  Liberals. The Tories' economic  critic, Jim Gillies, has publicly  suggested that Canadians should  resign themselves to being  "hewers of wood and drawers  of water"   for  the   world's   in-  Has Your Body Got Wrinkles  In The Fenders Or The Doors?

Dear Sir:  The picture of the docksi in the  Coast News is in Avalon Bay on  Gambier Island across from the  Langdale ferry terminal, and  those docks lead to my Grandma's and Grandpa's and our  summer camp. Those docks  were towed from Squamish. ten  years ago. Lots of boats come and  anchor in the bay because it  is protected from the wind.  Beachcombers also use this  bay for tying up their logs (near  the old raft-like docks in the back  of the picture). At the head of  the bay is an old camp which  belongs to the Thrashers from  Vancouver and the small dock on  the left belongs to the Silks,  who are also from Vancouver.  I have been going to Avalon  Bay since I was a baby and I am  twelve years old now and I still  go there every summer.  Deborah Killam,  Box 1010, Sechelt, B.C.,  VON 3A0  Auxiliary  by Madeline Grose  When Roberts Creek Hospital  Auxiliary members met on Monday, November 14th for their  usual meeting, every one was  talking about the success of their  Coffee Party and Bazaar held at  the Community Hall on Nov.  12th. As a result a handsome  sum has been raised to be used  for the benefit of the patients at  St. Mary's Hospital.  ��� Our auxiliary is host for the  annual Friendship Tea given to  all auxiliary members to St.  Mary's Hospital and a tentative  date has been set of May 10 in  the Community Hall. Mrs.  Bessie Rowberry will convene  this event.  The auxiliary hopes that it  will be possible to arrange for  better storage facilities for their  catering equipment and Mr.  Terry " Raines of Twin Creek  Building Supplies has very kindly  offered to supply all materials.  Thank you Terry.  The president reminded committee chairpersons that their  annual reports are required for  the December meeting and before closing she appointed Mrs.  Grose to chair a Nominating  Committee.  by J.Lear  The ladies of the Sechelt  Women's Auxiliary to St. Mary's  Hospital met on November 10th  at 2 p.m. in St. Hilda's Hall.  The president Billie Steele, who  conducted the business meeting,  warmly greeted new member,  Mrs.C. Budd.  The members readily responded to a request from the hospital for much-needed equipment  in the extended care area.  Ada Dawe read a report on the  annual smorgasbord held recently in the Roberts Creek hall.  We wish to extend our sincere  thanks to all who contributed  to the success of our project.  The time and effort spent are  greatly appreciated.  A call has come from the  physiotherapy department for  more help. A volunteer is urgently needed for Tuesday and Wednesday afternoons and for odd  hours on other days. If you can  help out even for one hour  please call Florence Doig at  885-3403.  Your attention is drawn to the-  annual luncheon meeting to be  held at 11:00 a.m. in St. Hilda's  Hall on December 8th. Lunch  will be served at 12:00. Any  member who has not yet bought  a ticket may get one at Betty  McKay's shoe shop in the Trail  Bay Mall or may phone Doreen  Jenkins at 885-9043. Also,  Betty McKay will accept names  of those wishing to be included  in the Christmas Greeting list  for this season.  On December 15th those ladies  who can help with Christmas  decorations for the hospital are  asked to meet in the main foyer  at 1:00 a.m.  Many patients have asked for  Western novels which are very  scarce in our library collection.  If you have some paper backs  please leave them at the hospital gift shop.  Ada Dawe is acting as our  recruiting officer for the upcoming election of officers. If  you have any names to add to the  list of nominees please call  Ada Dawe at 885-9537, or Ina  Grafe at 885-9761, or Peggy  Connor at 885-9347.  At the close of the meeting  refreshments were served by  Maureen Hall and Mabel McDermid.  Girl guides  are hard  at work  Sixty-seven years ago. Girl  Guiding was brought from England to a small town in Eastern  Canada, a gift from Lord Baden-  Powell. Since then tens of  thousands of girls have been  helped to a fuller life through  Brownies, Guides and Rangers.  Each year new girls join and  work .hard so they too can become enrolled members of this  "family".  The excitement and pride *of  the 1st Canadian Guides and  Brownies of that year 1910 was  no greater than that of the newest  enrolled members of our local  groups today. Allison Frish,  Patsy Sheldon, Shari Rogers,  Suzanne and Angela Middle-  ton, Nadine Skinner, Marlene  Lowden, Leslie Constable, Erin  Brodie, and Tracey Rezansoff  v are this falls' new Pixies, Imps,  Elves, and Gnomes of the 2nd  Gibsons Pack.  Later at a special ceremony  Debbie Shepherd and Debbie  Middleton received their wings  and "Flew" up to Guides. This  marks the end of four challenging and fun years as Brownies -  a sort of graduation from one  group to the other.  Our Guides too have been hard  at work. Heather Cattanach,  Yvonne Valancius, and Shelley  Fyles were presented with lanyards, whistles and stripes. Ruth  Madoc-Jones was enrolled.  Deanna and Heather Cattanach, Shelley Fyles, Debbie Gibb,  Lynn Noweselski, Scilla Webb  and Gail Wheeler, were awarded  with varying numbers and types  of interest badges, mainly involving their many camping  skills. Twenty-six badges were  presented.  Our new Ranger group is also  busy and having a great time.

What is really needed is central  economic planning to ensure a  rational development of our  secondary manufacturing base.  In such planning, there is room  for both the private and public  sector. It does not mean, as is  now the case, that big business  should use Canadians' tax money  to put our people out of work.  When American potash companies withheld tax money from  the Saskatchewan government,  that government called their  bluff and moved to acquire a  stake in the potash industry for  the benefit of the people of that  province.  There is a message in the Sudbury tragedy for such a resource-  dependent province as British  Columbia. We too have our one-  industry towns - Alcan in Kitimat, Cominco in Trail, Kaiser  in Sparwood and so on.  Some of you may still believe  that "free enterprise" will always  act in a responsible and honourable manner.  Well, the people of Sudbury  don't believe that.  Nor should we.  I   op  ELECTRONICS?
