Array LEGISLATIVE LIBRARY,  Parliament Buildings,  VICTORIA, B.C. V8V 1X4.  An historic final meeting of  / %Jhe Gibsons village council was  r   held Tuesday, December 21st,  �� in council chambers in Gib-  _��. Sons. The next time the council  .ji^meets will be as the Gibsons  :^town council on January 11th  " at 7:Q0. The community is iri-  Vited to an Open House for that  & first meeting. All residents of  v. the Town of Gibsons and  y "friends'' of the Town of Gib- -  sons are invited.  z     A population of over 2,600  |,has altered Gibsons' status  \ from village to town. The only  ] visible signs of the. transition  | will be the rewording of signs  "'and   of  letterheads   a<nd  r^envelppesi but internally the  Jfchange has more significance  .^ for Gibsons. 'C-OS.-; m  The council now has more  y autonomy in dealing with Vic  toria and more authority to  direct its-own affairs in such  matters as zoning. Only financial by-laws have to be approved by Victoria; all others can be  passed locally. The town's borrowing authority is increased  by about twenty-five per cent,  but as administrator Jack  Copland pointed out "we will  be very careful to face hard cold  economic facts and to be  realistic in terms of the times".  The main borrowing item at  present is the new fire truck for  the G.V.F.D. which will probably go to referendum in V  February. Valid estimates are1  now in and the West Howe  Sound Fire; Protection Committee is solidly behind the  firemen in their requests.  Another item to be considered is the Bluff sewer and a  To promote tourism  meeting with residents will take  ���place shortly to identify an acceptable course of action.  Under consideration also are  major waterworks improvements, including the  drilling of a third well and work  at the reservoir site. Council is  investigating what funding  assistance is available for these,  projects under the new Federal-'  Provincial job creation programmes.  Copland sees Gibsons..in  1983 as facing the problem of  ' 'increasing productivity while  maintaining the status quo in  terms of cost". But he declares,  "I am very optimistic about the  future of Gibsons". "We must  work to make sure wegrow the  way we want to," he said.  Coast goes to Boat Show  \  Sechelt's newest citizen, first baby born at St. Mary's in 1983, is Fraser Douglas, first-born son of  Mark Gandy and Elizabeth Down of Sechelt. Fraser Douglas arrived at 4:53 a.m., January 2nd,  weighing in at eight pounds, two ounces. Grandparents Peter and Penny Gandy of West Vancouver  and Muriel Down were baby Candy's first visitors. The baby is shown off here by his proud parents.  .-:'������'���'"���'.'��� ���.;\iV".'::'",.;r' ���George Matthews Photo  School brief pefsiiasive  programme saved  y.^  by Maryarine West v  *  An impressive number; of  . rteachers, parents and meihbers  v;of the Sechelt Indian Band attended the .School Board's  , December 21st meeting to protest the proposed termination  ; of the Indian Cultural pro-  < gramme conducted by Bradley  ��� Hunt at Sechelt Elementary  '��� School.  Both the Sechelt: Teachers  Association and Brian Butcher, principal of Sechelt  Elementary School, presented  : briefs attesting to the worth of  the courses and to the value of  Hunt's contribution to the  whole school community.  ��� Although the programme,  which brings Hunt into contact  -with all the children in the  school in a teaching capacity,  as well as acting as special  counsellor both for staff and  Indian children and liaison  wjth the Indian Band, is only'  three years old, it is already  showing positive results in improved feelings of self-esteem  in native children and better  understanding which results in  a more harmonious school, to  the benefit of all th.e children.  In a school in which almost a  quarter of the children are  native Indian, the School  Board has recognized the importance of making special  programmes and services  available to them.  Speaking on behalf of the  Parents Committee, Mrs.  Myhjll-Jones stressed the unique position of Sechelt Elementary School, pointing out that  Mr. Hunt's work provided the  only programme which truly  attempts to integrate the two  cultures, to bridge misunderstandings. It has caught the imagination of all the children.  Mrs. Joan Cowderoy read a  number of letters received from  non-native parents expressing  their concern at the loss of a  programme which has benefits  which reach out into the whole  community.  Chief Calvin Craigan and  Gilbert Joe spoke of their appreciation of Mr. Hunt's work  and expressed themselves confident that something could be  worked out, alternative funds  found, or a compromise reached, and asked the board for a  meeting in the new year to  discuss the status of both the  Indian Cultural programme  and the Native Environmental  Studies programme which has  also been adversely affected by  the cutbacks.  Later in the meeting, during  the discussion of the interim  budget, Trustee McKibbin proposed an amendment to the  motion for acceptance, which  deferred any action,  and  therefore restored 'the  necessary funding to the Indian  Cultural programme until  June, 1983. This amendment,  seconded by Trustee Stephen,  was unanimously accepted.  The interim budget is only a  preliminary spending plan  drawn up on the assumption of  what monies will be available  for the coming year, and which  will have to be revised for the  official budget due February,  after the Arbitration Board's  salary levels have been approved.  The School Board agreed to  incorporate the five non-  teaching days which the  teachers had to donate to the  restraint programme in the  Easter holidays. The spring  term will end on March 25th  and the summer term begin on  April 12th, 1983. .  As enrollment at the elementary school level has not reached the predictions.in either the  district or the department's  forecasts, it would seem the  new buildings planned for  Cedar Grove will be put oh hold  for the time being. Secretary-  Treasurer Mills, while encouraging the board to continue the fight for the needed  improvement to Cedar Grove,  didn't hold any real hope of  convincing the government of  that need.  Sunshine -Coast ��� Recreation  Consultants spokesman, David  Godfrey-Smith, has ainnounc-  _ ed that preparations "have  %��� begun to mount a display pro-  &' moting the Sunshine Coast at  /||, the combined Vancouver Inter-  " national Boat Show and Sports-  ���;m man's Show. The show begins  * on February 5th, 1983- at the-  ., PNE grounds in Vancouver.  ;gP   "With 110,000 visitors ex- ���  pected this year^ the show is an  excellent ��� place for ;Sunshine  ��&������-, Coast businesses and cqm-  ||;; munity groups to l^t^epubiic'  "' -Icniri^^abiriyi^^  G^dfrc^S^tiri^ca^e of the  current* national economy;������������  pePple are looking for places to  holiday that are close to home,  avoiding costly air travel, he explained. "We want to let them  know they're welcome here."  Godfrey-Smith explained  that with- the assistance of the  Economic Development Commission, it is hoped to mount a  truly regional display. Every  business on the Sunshine Coast  connected directly or indirectly  with the tourism industry is being sent a letter this week explaining the project and asking  for support.  "Obviously hotels, campgrounds, marinas, restaurants  and similar businesses stand to  benefit directly from increased  tourism. We hope these people  will actually mount a display  within our overall theme and  aictively promote their individual operation to the  show'svisitors.

While the award must be examined by the office of  restraint boss Ed Peck before it  is made official, the extra  money required to meet the  salary increase could result in  the lay-off of as many as six  teachers in the district.

By-law stops students  A by-law designed to prevent  school-aged children from  visiting the Arcade in the  Sunnycrest Mall during school  hours was given third and final  reading by Gibsons council on  December 21st. The by-law will  be put in effect by the new town  council when it meets January  11th. The new council will have  jurisdiction to pass such bylaws without seeking permission of Victoria.  By-law 488, which will prevent anyone under the age  of 15 from frequenting games  rooms containing amusement-  machines during school hours,  was passed by council following a request for such action  from the principal of Elphinstone Secondary School.  The new by-law limits the  hours of "persons apparently  or actually under the age of fifteen" using the machines, exr;  cept during specified times.m    \  The games rooms will be  restricted between the hours of  10 o'clock in the morning and  three, o'clock in the afternoon,  Mondays to Fridays inclusive,  or after 9:00 p.m. on Sundays ;  to Thursdays, unless on a  ���- school holiday.

There was, for example, a renewed sense of community  spirit and cooperation in projects such as the Dudley  Carter sculpture fund drive, the Rockwood Lodge project and the year-end Elves Club drive to bring Christmas  hampers to .the needy.  Furthermore, the work of the Economic Commission  is beginning to bear fruit and projects which will benefit  the local economy are in the early stages of development.  There has also been a renewed sense of the need to promote our area for tourism which, if fully developed, will  bring more visitors to the coast to the benefit of local  business.  In difficult times many businessmen showed a  remarkable degree of ingenuity and enterprise in offering  new goods and services while trimming costs.  All in all, with the lessons learned in 1982 and the  hopeful prospects of 1983, we look forward to a promising and productive year, a year in which more economic  activity and more employment will help erase the difficulties too many of our neighbours suffered during the  old year.  Statistics  are wonderful  Statistics are wonderful; they can do whatever we  want them to do.  Take for example the Minister of Education's  statistics which show that British Columbia spends the  second highest per pupil sum on education in the country. (We should be ashamed of spending money on our  kids?) Bill Vander Zalm uses this statistic to justify his  current campaign of harassment and abuse against the  teachers of the province.  We are in possession of some other statistics,  however, which seem to tell a somewhat different story.  They come from the B.C. School Trustees Association  and compare the cost sharing in various provinces for  education. The costs are shared between the provincial  governments and the property owners by way of property taxes.  We find in contemplating these statistics that B.C. is a  long way behind the provinces of Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba and Ontario. Figures for eastern  provinces are not available. The provincial government  we enjoy contributes 32.6 per cent of education costs as  of the restraint programme introduced on July 30, leaving the property owners picking up the tab for the remaining 67.4 per cent. In Alberta, the provincial  government contributes 62.1 per cent; in Saskatchewan  the provincial contribution is 53.0 per cent; in Manitoba  the provincial figure is 54.2 per cent; and in Ontario the  provincial government contributes 50.6 per cent.  It would appear then that this provincial government  is already bearing dramatically less of the education  costs than our provincial neighbours. Just something to  bear in mind the next time Blasting Billy fires from the  lip.  ...from the files of the COAST NEWS  I  5 YEARS AGO  The protracted B.C.

Second Class Mail Registration No. 4702  E_�� ���_-d  Three totem poles standing on Sechelt's Boulevard between Inlet  and Wharf Avenues were commissioned by the Union Steamship  Co. in 1926. They were carved near the Sechelt Residential School  by Paul Weenah of the Owikeno band, Rivers Inlet. He was married to a sister pf Dan Paul and the couple lived in Sechelt for a  time. Paul Weenah was assisted by local carvers Dan Paul, Mike  Paul and Frank Isadore (a.k.a. Frank Eugene). Circa 1928 the  poles were erected by Jimmy Bogart, who worked for 52 years as a  carpenter for the Union Co.  The totems stood between the dance  Musings  John Burnside  The names are withheld in  order not to embarrass the virtuous, but the following is a  true story - albeit several years  old at this point.  It concerns my one appearance in small debts court  and took place in Sechelt in the  early years of the seventies.  '.-,  I was at the time a teacher at  Elphinstone and, despitethe  lamentations of teachers  everywhere, I was not short of  ready cashTMy appearance hi  the small debts, court was $%  way of a point of principle. Lei  me explain. ^  I had been renting a charming little cottage in this locale  and when the time came to  leave it the second last thing I  had to do was melt the fat in the  chip pot and leave said pot  clean and sparkling for the  returning landlord and his  charming wife.  You can guess what happened. I took one load of belongings to the new address, left the  pot oh the stove and returned to  a pretty little cottage which had  suffered grievously from  smoke damage. I was  desperately mortified and  notified my landlord immediately. He was sympathetic  and kind and told me not to  worry, that he was insured.  Some time later, I heard  from the insurance company.  They were charging me with  negligence and holding me  responsible. I was enraged. The  bill came to $300 and was well  within my means, but they had  been taking premiums for  twenty years against just such  an accident. I refused to pay  and they took me to court.  Now, insurance companies  do not sue you in their own  name; they sue you in the name  of the householder.  We met outside the court and  the plaintiff, my former  landlord, assured the defendant, me, that this exercise was  not his idea and that he was as  enraged about the matter as I  was.  I expected little satisfaction  in court other than my right to  speak my mind on the ethics of  the insurance company.  I made my passionate little  speech about the letter of the  law and the spirit of the law.  The long-haired young lawyer  representing the insurance  company smirked; the judge  yawned and found against me.  $300 and court costs was the  judgement.  There were three local  workmen there as witnesses,  mainly to testify about the cost  ^t*.  pavilion (including tea room) built for Bert Whitaker, in the first  half of the 1920s (left) and his general store erected in 1899 (right),  These structures were purchased by the Union Co. in 1926. The  firm pulled out of Sechelt after the Second World War. Little boys  climbed the poles to remove beaks, ears, etc. Repairs were made  but the vandalism continued, so on April 1, 1955 the totems were  shipped to Bowen Island. The whole community grieved over (tie  loss. Caption by Helen Dawe.  Slings & ArrowsL%  1*'  [George Matthews  of the clean-up job. Court costs  amounted to $15.00 for each  witness..  After the judge found  against me the first stood and  asked that his fee be struck  from the costs; he was followed  by the second and third.  "I want no part of this  either," said the third. "Forget  my costs."  "$300," said the judge.  "Your honour," said the  r^aintififrom ih^a��kj3$ th<^;  room, "my wife and I have  been talking about this and we  have decided that if Shylock  must have his pound of flesh we  will pay."  And the court'was treated to  the sight of the so-called plaintiff presenting the court with a  cheque on the part of the defendant.  I hastened to assure my  former landlord that it had  never been my intention that he  should pay and that the money  would be his without delay.  "I am not yet finished," he  said. "Please do not concern  yourself."  Ten days later I received a  note from him. He had taken  the matter somewhere else,  some other how and had been  fully reimbursed by his insurance company.  I sent him a note of appreciation and invited him to take his  wife out to dinner at my expense.  Just a small upbeat story to  kick off 1983. Happy New  Year.  The power of the unwritten  word? The eraser is mightier  than the pen?  An interesting story from  Britain, related by Geoffrey  Madoc-Jones' father, who is  visiting for the holidays, has at  its centre the unlikely situation  of a newspaper deliberately  printing a blank page.  It seems in a recent labour  dispute between typographical  < wip.rjt;e.rs:;;,an.4^^n1e.w.s-:p^;per.  owners, the publishers wrote a  one page article in their own  newspaper explaining their  position. The labour union  refused to print the article and,  as a consequence, the paper  came out with one of its pages  blank.  This situation raises an interesting question; could  anything the publishers had  written on that page have had  the impact of that one blank  page?  For the labour union, that  blank page certainly expressed  its frustration with employers  who would use the labour of the  typographers to offer opinions  against the interests of the  workers.  On the other hand, there are  few who would condone the  censorship of opinion by the  employees of the newspaper.  So, whichever side you're on,  the blank page said more than  any words that could have been  printed on it.  Only in Britain you say?  r  Across the Threshold  To enter, to cross the Threshold, just one more step  closer to Eternity. The awe inspiring exactness of the  seasons. The example set for us to follow. A metaphor  of the creator's care for us. We are enfolded by that unseen spirit. All around the signs are there.  As we enter a crisp New Year let us look for the signs  and, seeing, remember. Mneteen-eighty-three one more  milestone reached. A long journey, some of it rocky and  hilly. Stumbling through, passing milestone after  milestone. A long procession to look back upon.  Walk softly, you might tread upon my dreams. Dreams  of yesteryear and of today. A few tucked away for the  future.  The turbulence calmed; sailing into peace on a calm sea  of blessed memories. On this earth a sanctuary of peace  may be found. May we all find and cherish it. And to  make footprints on the sands of time.  Golden moments flying by as silent as the dawn.  Building up through the centuries to erect a golden stairway into the unknown.  Blow the bugles; blow the horns; beat the drums. A  glorious farewell to nineteen-eighty-t wo.  Blow the bugles; blow the horns; beat the drums, a  glorious welcome to nineteen-eighty-three.  ���Margaret Slinn  New Year's Resolutions ,  Is it cynical to suggest that  dieting puts on weight? That's  what a diet expert said on the  radio the other day. He sard  that after 20 years of helping  people lose weight, the only-  thing he had learned was that  going on a diet will ensure that  the person will gain weight.  -'  Now he is a consultant to  people who want to gain!  weight. The things he* did��tO;  help people lose weight he now*  does td'help underweight peO->  pie gain. . -  Does that mean that people^  who resolve to lose weight-  should overeat? He didn't go  that far. What he did say was-  that he spent 20 years trying to  learn from overweight people*  how to lose weight. Now he'./  asks skinny people.  When it comes to keeping  those New Year's resolutions,'  this has soihe interesting im-'  plications. Will a person who  resolves to stop smoking end up  smoking more? Will a person-  who resolves to stop drinking  end up drinking more? Will a  person who resolves to get  more exercise end up lying m  bed all day watching TV? How  about someone who resolves  that 1983 will be the year he succeeds in achieving his personal-  goals? Maybe he'll end up a  total failure.

Just as I feel that  if any resident chose to not keep  any "barnyard animals", for  whatever reasons, that they  deserve to be protected by a bylaw that clearly defines  reasonable minimum distances  between animals; animal housing etc.; and their property line;  among other reasonable defini-  tions, such as minimum  sanitary conditions to be maintained by those who choose to  keep "barnyard animals" etc.  Respect between those  residents on either side of this  "basic human rights issue" is,  in my opinion, the first prerequisite (the second being compassion) for the holding of a  serious dialogue and the eventual formation of a mutually  liveable by-law, one that will be  protective of every resident's  individual rights, while at the  same time not be so restrictive  as to eliminate the personal  choice of whether or not to  keep "barnyard animals"  from any one segment of the  residents of Area 'B' who  reside outside the boundaries  of Sechelt village itself.  It is my sincere hope that  you, Mr. Murphy, will actively  encourage the respect and compassion that will be necessary in  order to approach and to  achieve a truly equitable solu-  tion (in the form of a  reasonable by-law) to this sensitive issue, by your personal ,  example of behaviour, both at  the coming SCRD Board  Public Hearing itself, and  maybe even more importantly,  in any discussions and/or  dialogue that you may have  with various individuals, or  groups, prior to the public  hearing, both publicly and  privately.  Obviously, there is valuable  self-respect inherent in the accepting of the responsibility of  a greater degree of self-  sufficiency, especially during  these tougher economic times;  and I for one.strongly feel that  the personal choice to do just  that, or not, should not be  taken: away, or severely  restricted, by anybody, and  especially so during times like  these.  Additionally, it is my hope  that both the editors of the two  local newspapers will encourage and provide a forum  on this issue within the pages of  their respective newspapers, inviting all viewppints to express  themselves, so that as many  varying aspects and outlooks  are presented to the residents of  Area 'B' for real consideration  and understanding, prior to the  up-coming public hearing as is  possible. All Area 'B' residents  should be afforded the oppor- .  tunity to have a comprehensive.�����  and informed overview of this'  issue prior to their attendance l  at the coming public hearing^' .;  It is my belief that none of;  the residents of Area 'B' should^;  "be in the dark'' about an issue <  that touches their neighbours,  as well as themselves, and affects this community so closely  as this one does. It appears that  the handling of and the outcome of this issue is bound to  show all of us just to what  degree we who live in Area 'B'  are willing to co-exist with our  neighbours. ,  Sincerely yours,  Rex Long  n;",".  Editor:  Canadians today are more  involved than ever before in  law reform, thanks to a growing interest on the part of the  media. With the aim of promoting still a greater exchange  between the general public and  the Law Reform Commission  of Canada, we have established  at the Commission the position  of Director of Information Services.  The first to hold this position  is Rolland Lafrance, who has  ,      ,        �� ��� f<   *      ; I   .���   ��� _ - - ��� '    (  '  ������ .

Please feel free to contact him  as often as necessary.  We are delighted to be in a  position to serve you better.  Yours sincerely,  Jean Cote  Secretary  Law Reform Commission  of Canada, Ottawa  Abolish acclamations!  Editor:  It is unfortunate that so  many people were elected to  public office on November  20th, 1982, by acclamation.  Imagine, 16 people elected to  school boards throughout this  Province without competition.  At an average cost of $4,000 per  year per person plus expenses,  this is like giving away $ 160,000  without effort as every trustee  is usually elected for two years.  It is hard to say how many  mayors, aldermen and regional  directors were also elected by  acclamation, but it must be just  as many as trustees and this cost  will be more, because their  remuneration is more.  These give-away programmes must cease, and one suggestion to avoid some people  obtaining a pension for life  without a contest would be to  place a moratorium on all acclamations until a contest can  be assured. This will save the  taxpayers thousands and  thousands of dollars that could  be used for a worthwhile cause  and, it may also help to make  people more aware of the importance of local elections.  Yours truly,  J.T. (Jock) Smith  Foundation pleased  President Graham Craig of  the Sunshine Coast Health  Foundation expressed himself  well pleased with the results of  the Foundation's logo contest  which was conducted late in  1982.  According to Craig, there  was a total of 36 entries in the  contest from about 25 competitors. The age of the competitors varied from nine years  old to senior citizens and  represented all parts of the Sunshine Coast from Garden Bay  to Langdale. -  As  reported  last  month,  Greta Guzek of Gibsons was  judged the winner by Burrell  Swartz, Dudley Carter and  Bruno Gerussi. Honourable  mention was given to Gaye  Hammond of Garden Bay and  W.R. Langdon of Gibsons.  "As president and organizer  of the Foundation," said  Craig, '4I am certainly  delighted with the results. The  contest was initiated to bring  publicity to the Foundation,  with the bonus of finding a  good logo design, and the idea  has resulted.in success for all  concerned.  PROPANE TROUBLES?  .

The first column of the New Year seems like  a good time to do a retrospective of the past year's events  (mostly because there's  nothing else to write about) but  what really happened in 1982?  Well, there was of course the  controversial Arts Festival in  July, not the success organizers  had hoped. But the "Non-  runners Run" in September got  a lot of guys who wouldn't be  caught dead in a Fitness Class  out on the road. Bob Zornes  was chosen Mr. Roberts Creek  in July and Brett McGillivray  was elected Regional Director  in November.  The new joint facility was  finally ready for use in June,  though it is still not completely  finished. A truck drove  through the window of the Post  Office in May, but ICBC  delayed repairs until July. People rallied to the cause of  Seumus Hennessey who was hit  by a car on Beach Avenue in the  spring, but it still took a long  time for motorists to notice the  new three-way stop signs at the  Post Office in the fall.  The New Horizons group  celebrated its tenth anniversary  in June and, the Cubs and  Beavers started groups in  September. They newly-  formed Ensemble Theatre  made a big hit with productions  of "4 by 8" and "Little Foxes"  and the long-standing Roberts  Creek Crafts Faire was a success once again.  Glen Kraus had a big year.  His 1982 resolution to "change  his image" included a new  hairstyle and a quit-smoking  programme that added several  millimetres to his waistline. His  ' 'run-in'' with the police netted  the RCMP a new car and his  runaway "dolly" drove him  back to smoking.  Speaking of quitting smoking, remember Roy Milliner  and George Longman going  Cold Turkey last January.  George didn't last long and it  didn't improve his choice of  dance partners, either.  Then there was Alex  Ritchie's new door at the  Legion and Lome Pelto's  vendetta against sneaker-  sneaking dogs. The rookies  proved a little hard on the doors  at the fireball, but Alex Ross  got his first chance to put his  fire-fighting training to practice when he got steamed at one  of the patrons. Chief Mulligan  learned something too: always  turn your best side to the  camera.  As for the news for 1983,  things are just starting up again  after the Christmas break.  There's crib and bridge at the  Legion this Thursday starting  at 8:00 p.m. and fitness classes  start next week.  Coming up on Friday,  January 14th, is the Parents  Auxiliary's Talent Show to be  held at the old Community Hall  and featuring parents and  friends of the school. It's  bound to be a good show, so  don't miss it. They'd like more  performers, so if you can sing,  dance, juggle, play an instrument, do magic, or tell jokes,  please call Dianne Evans at  886-2087.  by Joan Cowderoy  Volunteer Action Centre  A variety of new opportunities for volunteer involvement have opened for 1983.  New Playschool for Halfmoon Bay requires volunteer,  help one or two mornings or  afternoons a week with an arts  and crafts programme for preschoolers.  Research Project on Wife  Abuse requires volunteer interviewers from all over the Coast  to assist in evaluating the community's response to wife  abuse. Approximately four to  eight hours a week for a two-  and-a-half month period.  Speech Therapist in Gibsons  requires assistance for one-  and-a-half hours a week with  pre-school child (in; Gower  Point area. Initial training and  ongoing support will be provided. Two to three months duration only.  Telephone Tree for seniors  and shut-ins requires a coordinator for the programme  to take referrals and register  new clients. Approximately  one to two hours a week.  Senior in Gibsons Village  area would like a visitor once a  week to chat and read with her.  Persons interested in any of  the above positions or wanting  to inquire about other Sunshine  Coast volunteer possibilities  are asked to call Joan  Cowderoy at the Volunteer Action Centre 885-5881.

You and I  *^rnarvel that man should travel  *��jso far and so fast.  I *K Yet if they have travelled far  iHlthen I have travelled farther.  And if they have travelled fast,  *��then.I faster. For I was. born a  % thousand years ago, born in the  k culture of the bow and arrow.  | But within the span of half a  % lifetime, I was flung across the  �� ages to the culture of the atom  /'If bomb. And from bows and ar-  | rows to atom bomb is a distance  | far beyond a flight to the moon.  ' ijj . I was born in an age that lov-  �� ed the things of nature.

I  | wvas born when people loved all  ���; nature and spoke to it as though  5 it, had a soul. I can remember  2; going up Indian River with my  *��� father when I was very young.

T; Like a crushing rushing wave  t\ they came, hurling the years  ^ aside. And suddenly I found  $1 myself a young man adrift in  $. this new age but not a part of it.  �� Engulfed by its rushing tide,  �� but only as a captive, going  ;- round and round. On little  j> reserves and plots of land we  *��� floated in a kind of grey  *��� unreality ashamed of our  ���j culture which you ridiculed,  ���; unsure of who we were or where  ^ we were going, uncertain of our  *; grip in the present, weak in the  t* hopes for our future and that is  '.] where we pretty well stand to-  ;\ day.  ^ 1 had a glimpse of something  T�� better than this. For a few brief  ^ years 1 knew my people when  ;* we lived the old life. I knew  ���y them when there was still the  i'i dignity in our lives and a feeling  ���t of worth in our outlook. I knew  �� them when there was unspoken  ;i confidence in the home and a  ;; certain knowledge of the path  ''" we walked upon. But we were  >: living on the dying energy.of a  r't dying culture - a culture that  i* was slowly losing its full thrust.  ']     I think it was the suddenness  II that hurt us so. We did not have  �� time to adjust to the startling  f* upheaval around us. We seem-  Reggie The Sweep.  886-7484  ed to have lost what we had  without a replacement of it. We  did not have time to take our  twentieth century progress and  eat it little by little and digest it.  It was forced feeding from the  start and our stomach turned  sick and we vomited.  Do you know what it is like to  be without moorings? Do you  know what it is like to live in  surroundings that are ugly and  everywhere you look you see  ugly things, strange things,  strange and ugly things? It  depresses men. For men must  be surrounded by beauty if his  soul is to grow.  What did we see in the new  'surroundings that you brought  us? Laughing faces, pitying  faces, sneering faces, conniving faces - faces that ridicule,  faces that stole from us. It is no.  wonder that we turned to the  only people that did not steal,  or who did not sneer, who came  with love. They were the missionaries. And they came with,  Iovei and^rf^f'tme will*alwaiys  return that love! ^" ; ��� ?  Do you ever wonder what it is  like to feel that you are of no  value to society and those  around you? To know that people came to help you, but not to  work with you. For you knew  that they knew that you had  nothing to offer.  Do you know what it is like to  have your race belittled and to  come to learn that you are only  a burden to the country?  Maybe we did not have the  skills to make a meaningful  contribution, but no one wait  for us to catch up. We were  shoved aside because we were  "dumb" and could never  learn.  And now, you hold otit your  hand and you beckon to me to  come across the street. Come  and integrate you say. But how  can I come? I am naked and  ashamed. How can I come in  dignity? I have no presents. I  have no gifts. What is there in  my culture you value? My poor  treasures you can only scorn,  Am I then to come as a beggar  and receive all from your omnipotent hand? No. Somehow I  must wait. I must delay. I must  find myself. I must find my  treasure. I must wait until you  want something of me, until  you need something that is me.  And I can walk across the street  and I will hold up my head for I  will meet you as an equal. I will  not scorn you for your demon  gifts. And you will not receive  me in pity. Pity I can do  without - my manhood I cannot  do without.  1 can only come as Chief  Capilano came to Captain Vancouver, as one sure of his  authority, certain of his worth,  master of his house, leader of  his people. I shall not come as a  cringing object of your pity. I  shall come in dignity or I shall  not come at all.  You talk big words of integration in schools. Does it  t  We wmM Kfec  to ikmcfe  Florence & Wiljo Wiren  and  Kory & Kay McKay  $M QuM dwdum to  Arfiaiy CMiMCOA Twd H  really exist? Can we talk of integration until there is social integration? Unless there is integration in hearts and minds,  you have only a physical  presence. And the walls are as  high as the mountain ranges.  Come with .me to the  playgrounds of an integrated  high school. See how level and  flat and ugly the blacktop is.  But look now it is recess time.  The students pour through the  doors. Soon over there is a  group of white students. And  see over there near the fence,? a  group of native students.  And look again, the black is  no longer level. Mountain  ranges rise, valleys fall and a  great chasm seems to be opening up between the two groups  -yours and mine. And no one  seems capable of crossing over.  But wait. Soon the bell will  ring, and the students will leave  the play yard. Integration has  moved indoors. There isn't  much.'.'room' in the classrooms/  to diyjcH_isms. So there-isrbhly  little ones- there, only little ;f|  ones. For we won't allow big  ones, at least not right under  our noses. So we will cover it all  over with black top. Cold,  black and full of ugliness iri its  sameness.  I know what you must be saying, tell us what do you want?  What do we want? We want  first Of all to be respected and to  feel that we are people of  worth. We want an equal op- >  portunity to succeed in life. But  we cannot succeed on your  terms. We cannot raise  ourselves in your norms. We  need specialized help in education, specialized help in the formative years, special courses in  English. We need guidance  counselling. We need equal op-  portunties, job opportunities  for our graduates, otherwise  our students will lose courage  and ask, "what is the use of it  all?"  Let no one forget it. We are a  people with special rights,  guaranteed to us by promises  and treaties. We do not beg for  these things, nor do we thank ,  you. We do not thank you for  them because we paid for them.  And God help us, the price we  paid was exorbitant. We paid  for them with our culture, our  dignity and self respect. We  paid and we paid and we paid  until we became a beaten race,  poverty stricken .and conquered.  But you have been kind to  listen to me. And I know that in  your hearts you wish you could  help. I wonder if there is much '������"  you can do. And yet there is a '  lot you can do. When you meet  my children in your classroom,;,'.  respect each one for what he is .  -a child of our Father in heaven  and your brother. Maybe it all '  boils down to just that.  And now is the end. May I '  say thanks to you for the  warmth of your understanding  and may I thank you in the !  words my father used to thank  the sun for its light and its  warmth.  ���������Bjl  Coast News, January 3,1983  by Jane McOuat 883-9342  By all accounts so far, this  has been a good holiday season  for the Coast. Nobody seemed  to have had an extraordinary  Christmas, but it. was such a  nice change to have a holiday  without thinking about money  or time - even it if was only for a  couple of days, Thinking about  money comes in January and  that's for sure!  It doesn't seem that there's a  lot going on in the community.  I guess everybody's resting up  after all the imbibing. There  were quite a few good New  Year's celebrations and at Connie's Restaurant some select actually dined on Moose Steak!  No swap meet this month;  they'll probably begin again in  February.  My apologies to John Clyde  the welder. He actually has  . nothing to do with Tomor  Forms, but it was the same style  of print that he wanted for his  ad. Just to show how quickly a  mistake can blossom - someone  asked if John was also installing rolled lawn turf along with  supplying forms. Nope! John  Clyde is just a good welder and  av nice fellow.  Next week we'll hopefully  have something really exciting  to talk about - well, maybe...  NEED WELDING  REPAIRS DONE?

Coast News, January 3,1983  Pacific Yachting visits Sunshine Coast  by Bruce Woodsworth  Pacific Yachting's "Cruising Guide to British Columbia  -Vo. Ill Sunshine Coast: Boundary Bay to Jervis Inlet" by Bill  Wolferstan, 415 colour photos,  216 pp. $44.95.  As with 40-year old cruising  author Bill Wolferstan's  previous Vol. I "Gulf Islands  and Vancouver Island from  Sooke to Courtenay," and Vol.  ��� II "Desolation Sound and the  Discovery Islands," Pacific  Yachting and he have collaborated a third time to produce Vol. Ill for the boating,  fishing and environmental  fraternity.  This valuable and expansive  hardcover sweeps down majestically and systematically  onto the West Coast's lower  mainland, by air, by sea, by  land, all the way from the  Canadian border northwestwards to the top of Jervis  Inlet. Peggy Ward did the  chapter on the Fraser Estuary  only, with husband Bill providing outstanding colour  photography. Otherwise, it's  Wolferstan's show: all of Vancouver's Burrard Inlet - invaluable to the wandering  boatsman wondering where to  lie up for the night; Howe  Sound from Bowen Island to  Squamish (Salish for "Home  of the Winds"); then Gambier  and West Howe Sound.  Bill Wolferstan covers the  60-odd miles of the Sunshine  Coast in minute detail. Flying  with pilot-aerial photographer  George McNutt, Bill has included hundreds of beautifully  sharp colour photos just where  you want them, opposite the  verbal descriptions and charts,  not tucked away by themselves  at the stern of the book! And,  not content to passively accept  hydrographic chart data, e.g.  the navy anchor symbolizing  safe overnight anchorage,  Brother William has personally  tested every anchorage he plots  on his large scale chart sections,  as well as exploration of the  surrounding shorelines.  In a  J       thoroughly seagoing manner  |i       he has sounded the shoals and  |       reefs,  plotted the outlying  $       rocks to the point of deserving  several M AREP (marine reporting) awards, given annually by  the      Canadian      Power  Squadron.  ; Men and women of the out  doors now have a prolifically il-  v       lustrated Vol. Ill which reports  :       faithfully on such unusual  -topics as shoreline geology of  the whole area; bird colonies;  hot fishing spots for trolling,  mooching and casting during  each of the four seasons; safe  and hazardous waters for small  boats (his four Skookumchuck  photos have a hypnotic attraction which need not be fatal as  long as one carefully follows  his painstaking instructions).  There is a map showing suggested diving areas, locations  of wrecks and hulks, museums  and historical sites and small  boat rentals. Another one lists  arid locates no less than 108  government   and   private  wharves and marinas and the  pages where they are described  in detail: whether they have an-  Gibsons  Public Library  Tues. Wed. Sat. 2-4 pm  Thurs. 2-4 & 7-9 pm  886-2130   -   chorage only, or carry water,  lights, power, garbage  disposal, showers, fuel, boat  repairs and maintenance,  maybe even a marine hoist or  derrick...  For the armchair explorer  with a bent for history, Bill includes a chart made by Jose  Maria Narvaez,  1791, in his  Spanish naval schooner 'Satur-  na'; another by Galiano and  Valdez,  June  1792, aboard  their schooners 'Sutil' and  'Mexicana'. The course of  Captain George Vancouver's  sloop HMS 'Discovery' and  armed tender 'Chatham' are  plotted during the fortnight of  13-14th June, 1792, as are the  tracks of his ships' boats as they  sounded and mapped their  laborious way up Burninl's  Canal (Burrard Inlet), Howe  Sound and Jarvis's 'Canal'.  This reviewer has fished in  Hotham Sound and often  wondered after whom Sykes  Island has been named: John  Walbran, a well-travelled  ship's captain, gathered a  wealth of information relating  to the place names of-British  Columbia. According to him,  as related by Wolferstan, Able  Seaman John Sykes had been  for many years an old faithful  follower of Lord Nelson. Cape  St. Vincent lies at the extreme  southwest corner of Portugal  and Sykes was in the famous  naval engagement of 1797.  Pages  from a Life-Log  Peter Trower  Ticking into Jeopardy.  In this counting house of  calloused faces  the caught spent runners  have come to sullen rest.  Their freedom short-circuited  their chancy gambles lost  they languish in cells  revengeful or resigned  discuss in terse voices  the small priorities of prison.  Outside these walls  the world goes about its  business  working playing perpetuating  making children and war.  Oakalla Prison is an  anachronism; a stern monument to narrow thinking and  harsh retribution. Canada legged far behind more-  enlightened countries in the  matter of penal reform. Improvements came slowly and  were only instituted over the  strenuous objections of right  wing zealots. If these reactionary forces had had their  way, the noose, the lash and the  silent system would still be in  active use. Fortunately, saner  heads prevailed and these^  punitive, mediaeval mejasuires |  were phased out. Canadian '  prisons become more humane  places, where rehabilitation  was emphasized. But these  changes were surprisingly re-  cent and the shadow of past  atrocities hangs over Oakalla  and all her many counterparts  like a pall.  Such gloomy thoughts continue   to   preoccupy   me  throughout my sojourn in the  South  Wing. .But  as  days  become weeks, they tend to occur less frequently. I almost  come to accept the forbidding  atmosphere pf maximum  security; the repetitious commands of the screws; the constant proximity of bitter and  provably dangerous men. The  macabre business of serving  meals below  Death  Row  becomes mere routine and I  move about the upper tiers with  practised familiarity. (Fortunately, Sally the queen was  transferred to the Pen. several  days after my arrival. I can't  say I miss her lewd and embarrassing come-ons. "I'm going  out where they've got some real  men!'' she informed us defiantly as she was led away.)  I continue to study the  minutae of the prison. One  such involves the remarkable  transformation of little John,  the wino. When I first met him,  John had looked at least twenty  years older than his claimed age  of thirty seven. I'd assumed he  was just suffering from some  alcoholic delusion. Sure  enough however, as the days  pass, the years seem to drop  away from him, as regular  meals, proper rest and  abstinence from liquor, work  their magic. By the time he is  ready to leave, he looks no  more than a somewhat shopworn forty. John bids us goodbye with the same self-effacing  smile. I watch him return to the  rigours of the street with a certain sadness. For I know,  unless Potter's Field claims  him, he will be back, looking  like a broken old man again.  One day, a prisoner of some  distinction is admitted to the  wing. He is Homer Stevens,  militant head of the  Fisherman's Union. Stevens is  appealing a year for Contempt  of Court in connection with a  marginally illegal picketing incident. 1 have seen him many  times on television. Stevens is. a  fortyish man, with thin brown  hair combed over a balding  scalp. He wears a proud and/  stoical look v His presence in  this den of villains, thieves and  fulltime foulups, seems a bit incongruous at first glance. But  when you stop to think about it,  Canada has a not-sd-proud  tradition of jailing her labour  leaders that dates back to the  days of Tim Buck and before.  Stevens is only the latest in a  long line of railroaded left-  wingers.  They have movies sometimes  in the South Wing, to leaven the  grind a little. They are shown in  a part of the wing I have not  seen up to this point ��� an  auditorium that shares the fifth  tier with the Observation cells.  The room doubles as a church  and a sometime gymnasium. It  is also, Jake informs me (for  grim truths are never far away  here) where corporal punishment used to be meted out in  the hard days.  The filmic fare tends towards  mild comedies and westerns  -nothing too suggestive or controversial .N But it doesn't take  much to get the cons going in  these womanless precincts.  When a relatively innocuous  Doris Day picture is shown, the  lady's anatomy is the subject of  discussion for days.  ���to be continued  :[:      Sure  i��  1982 was  rough, but the  Chinese symbol  ���for a crisis is  e same as for  _gn opportunity.

Nelson's barge  containing 12 men was attacked by a Spanish gunboat containing 26 soldiers. Sykes twice  parried blows aimed at Nelson,  and at last actually interposed  his own head to receive a sabre-  cut which he could not avert by  any other means, thus receiving'  a dangerous wound.  Should any girl from the  Sunshine Coast accidentally  wet her locks with a touch of  ocean spray, or any Malaspina  Strait dreamer have, to wring  brine from his matted beard,  there is only one cure and it is in  two parts:  1) Contact your nearest Sunshine Coast Power Squadron  acquaintance and signify your  desire to enroll in its next  boating course. Gibsons,  Sechelt and Pender Harbour  have each completed a course  recently.and last spring SCPS  received the coveted award  amongst some 15 competing  squadrons composing Pacific  Mainland District for the  highest number of graduates in  final exams - with 85 per cent  required to even pass!

Purchase and study  carefully this excellent hardcover nautical Vol. Fill of  Pacific Yachting's Cruising  Guide and see for yourself what  Bill Wolferstan has in store for  all Sunshine Coast residents.  Even at $44.95, its far-reaching  value is hard to beat: on an  endless carpet the panorama  silently passes in fascinating se-  quence: history and  geography; topography,  geology and meteorology; ebb  and: flood of tidal waters and  current speeds; floraarid fauna  o�� the littoral strip marine  1 resorts and temporary tie-up  spots. Wolferstan's book goes  a long way towards opening up  one of the world's richest and  most varied cruising grounds.  As Ulysses, the Greek explorer and warrior, puts it so  well in Tennyson's poem:  "Come my friends, 'tis not too  late to seek a newer world; for  my purpose holds to sail  beyond the sunset, and the  paths of all the western  stars...To strive, to seek, to  find, and not to yield."

We knew exactly what the  lovable little space horror was  going to look like. We even  knew there was a midget inside  the rubber suit.  In ye older days, this would  have spoiled the fun. I mean, if  you knew what the monster was  going to look like before you  even went into the theatre,  what was the point of going?  My wife and I decided that  we really couldn't afford to  deprive ourselves of a major  cultural experience.  How could E.T. possibly be  a major cultural experience?  Well, it was. -��    '  I'll explain: It was 1897 when  H.G. Wells' The War of the  Worlds became the most  phenomenally popular science  fiction book yet, introducing a  Golden Age of imaginary invasions from outer space.  At their literary peak, in the  1920s and '30s, invading extraterrestrials were known in the  trade as BEMs, for Bug-Eyed  Monsters. Nearly every sci-fi  pulp magazine featured at least  one such BEM every second  issue.  pected   support   from   a  bystander could bring you an  equal victory and great joy.

Here is a chance to develop that  knife-edge balance between  giving and taking, particularly  regarding interest in and attention paid to other person,  rather than shared adventures.

See yourself as an  apprenViceiiserving-.^heiquiel  voice of the master-within,. Ipo  not expect any external advice  to be potent for long.  CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-  Jan. 19)  Gift of sustaining others is  yours. Give support and encouragement. As for Taurus,  'do not allow sentimental  allegiances to lure you to share  good fortunes with undeserving 'friend'. All is above board;  good spirits abound; absent is  intrigue.

Material success is at hand, including all props required for  your drama. Unexpected help  comes.  PISCES (Feb. 19-Mar. 20)  .You   possess   skill   and  bravery, but can be destructive  and  cruel  due  to  lack  of  understanding.  Slow down,  listen.  You will find you no.  longer  need certain values  about what you appreciate, enjoy and expect. Look back on ;  and      ahead      to     great '  achievements due to self- *  reliance, and expectations of '  others will diminish.  They were great. They took  every imaginable form. There  was Green Slime, slithering  things with tentacles,  Mushroom-Men from Mars,  ���_ Mind Parasites, Space Spores,  jelly-like blobs who came and  harvested us like turkeys every  few centuries.  i; During the pulp magazine  ; era, almost to a creature, the invaders from space displayed an  inordinate amount of interspecies interest in scantily-clad  heroines.  That trend continued into  the 1950s and early '60s when  Hollywood and Japan both  jumped into the monster B  movie field. Thatj of course,  was the best part.  - Sci-fi books themselves were  | getting more sophisticated,  culminating at an artistic level  '-with Arthur C. Clarke's portrayal of the eventual conquerors from space as looking  exactly like devils.  On the screen, I watched,  mesmerized, as the Invasion of  the Body Snatchers came and  went, as the Saucer-Men  lumbered off with scantily-clad  heroines in their arms, as a  green-skinned Martian on stilts  staggered back to his saucer  with a scantily-clad heroine...  Ah yes, and then there was  the Monster of The Id, which  was first revealed in 1956 in a  film called Forbidden Planet,  which was the most terrible  space monster of them all ��� the  monster of mankind's, subconscious!  There were all sorts of  monsters from Earth, from  King Kong to Godzilla,  Mothra, Rodan and Chidrah,  which were always trying to  destroy Tokyo or New York.  But these never had the clout  seriously to threaten the human  race. They couldn't call down  swarms of intergalactic battleships armed with weapons  that could evaporate whole  solar systems.    :  SiAnd there's the fubVlf the in--  vaderscomle.to us^lnstead ��f"us  getting to them, tHe game is  over right from the start.  They're the winners. We're the  dopes ��� haven't even figured  out the Interstellar Drive...I  mean.  - So it would be a very tricky  piece of diplomacy Tor a  superior species from the stars  to make contact with human  beings without turning us into  alcoholics and bums for at least  a century or two before we  recovered our shattered pride.  You'd have to find some way  to reprogramme humanity to  accept the idea of an alien being  as an object of affection,  maybe even pity-���like making  a movie that everybody sees  and mass-distributing cute little ugly dolls...  In the movie, E.T., the kid  hero actually kisses the alien!  1 say, man your blasters,  space cadets! We're being set  up!  Any day now, I expect the  real invaders to arrive.

Conference studies  pesticide use  j by Michael Conway-Brown  ;;   "Pesticide Use in Urban Environments" was the subject of  a conference held at Simon  ; Fraser University, December 3  ;and 4. Meeting together were  ^'representatives from municipalities, government, industry  ���and environmental organizations. The purpose was "to present  a variety of views on  ;pesticide     development,  registration and use in Canada,  and to. acquaint municipal  governments 'and the public  ?with        the        available  alternatives". Topics included  pests and their management,  pesticide development, testing,  and  regulation,  and  the  associated health issues.  > Keynote speaker was Dr.  Ross  Hall,   Professor of  Biochemistry and  Health  Sciences at McMaster University, and serving on the Canadian-  Environmental Advisory Committee to the Ministry of Environment. He discussed his recent report, "A New Approach  to.Pest Control in.Canada".  Dr. Hall expressed concern  over the cumulative health effects from exposure to  pesticides. "Most of our food  is contaminated in one way or  another with insecticides and  herbicides", and he emphasized; "We must be concerned."  He criticized the present testing  procedures as inadequate, explaining that "Lab experiments only deal with one  chemical at a time, when in fact  we are exposed to multiple  pesticide residues ��and industrial chemicals." He accepted the present testing for  a'cute effects as "very well  done", but said "the real problems are cancer, birth defects,  and mutations".  ; He recommended moving  away from a .dependence on  chemical pesticides.  ';'Biological controls have been  developed in Canada but are  simply not being used," he  stated, "part of the reason is  political." He described  government policy as being  ''stuck in a rut" and explained  Kow the final say on pesticides  is a political decision, rather  than scientific.  : Dr. Hall cited a number of  alternatives that have successfully been used. He said:  "There are alternatives, they  do work, and the faster we start  moving in that direction the  better off we all will be." "In  my view, chemical pesticides  have had their day, and it's time  to move on."  In response, both government and industry representatives defended the present  system. "Our regulatory  system in Canada today is the  toughest in the world," said  Wayne Ormrod, a senior official from the Pesticides Section of Agriculture Canada, the  agency solely responsible for  their registration.  Dow Chemical's Manager of  Government Relations, Harold  Major added that they may be  too tough, causing an inadequate number of crop protection products toe be ��n the  market. He agreed with Dr.  Hall that present testing does  not account for all long term  hazards,: but posed the question: "If we're doing the best  we can today, how can we be  criticized?"    .  The reserved academic atmosphere became quite strained following presentations concerning the B.C. Environmen-  tar Appeal Board;  Sharp;  criticism was levelled by Dr.  John Warnock, Pesticide  Researcher for the Society Pro-7  moting Environmental Conser-^;  vation (SPEC)j and a. veteran  , of the battle..tq.:kee^2,4^13��0!4fe  of the Okanagan lakes. "The  appeal process is heavily stacked against the public," he said.  Dr. Ron Kobylnyk, thtttew1  administrator of the Pesticide  Control Act in B.C. defended  the appeal board procedures. ���;  In response,  an obviously  disgruntled audience gave the  administrator "a bit of a  roasting", in the words of Dr.  John Borden, a Simon Fraser  University professor in their  Pest Management Programme.  The conference was jointly  sponsored by Simon Fraser  University,  SPEC,  and the  West Coast Environmental  Law Research Foundation.  Cathy    Fox,    conference  organizer and executive director for SPEC explained that  "The conference was arranged  primarily   for   municipal  representatives, because of  their concern expressed over  the IBT Scandal." Several  municipalities have suspended  their use of many pesticides  since it became known that  safety tests performed by IBT  labs were fraudulent and invalid.  A second conference was  held the following day at SPEC  offices where environmentalists discussed objectives and  strategy for improved pesticide  control. SPEC will be organizing an Alternatives to  Pesticides symposium for the  spring, and environmental  researcher Michael Conway-  Brown agreed to examine the  possibility of a province-wide  coalition.

First j I have  been unable to understand how  we ever won the war and,  secondly, how I was able to  leave the Service with ah  honourable discharge and still  retain the rank of sergeant.  Frankly, I was glad to be  leaving Germany although saying goodbye to Lisalotta and  little Gerda was an emotional  and heart-wrenching affair, I  had grown very fond of both of  them but, in view of; the fact  that I had a wife back .in  Canada and the war now ended, it was inevitable that sooner  or later the break-up would  have to come.  Whether I was iri some kind  of a daze, or it could have been  that I was still in an alcoholic  fog, but it wasn't until I boarded the plane that was taking me  to London, England, that.thev  full impact of the seriousriessof  my situation hit me. Any one of  the five charges that I was facing could, on conviction, net  me a lengthy spell in a military .  prison and, in all probability,  that would have been the outcome had not several seemingly  unrelated factors occurred.  ;1  Although I was never permit--  ted to read it in its entirety,  possibly the most important  thing in my favour was the  medical report that had been  submitted to the court of enquiry, held at the R;C.ArE;  Headquarters in Lincolns ilnn  Fields, London. Before leaving  Germany I had had several interviews with our Medical Officer, a Sqdn./Ldr. Thomipson  who, oddly enough, was .an  American. He had been irked  at the long delay before his  country had entered the ^war  and had chosen to join the  R.C.A.F. I remember very little of what went Oh during our  discussions, but it was obvious  that he was sympathetic to my  cause, arid was willing to do  everything hie couldlo help m'e.  Ho'we^ver^f do recall his telling  me^n^^ad^t>e_n^fflem:ber  ,;.. ofaircrew,, he,,would, have had  'no'-hesitation iri recomrnehding  that I be grounded under trie  classification thatT was suffering from combat fatigue. \j#-  fbrturiately, this diagnosis was  inapplicable to members of tjhe  ground crew, although he did  agree, after hearing of my prfQr  digious   consumption .of',..  aquavit and cognac and my  nightly sessions with the lovely  Lisalotta, that it was .'quits  possible I was far more exr  hausted than any former air^  crew member after completing  his quota of flying missions  over enemy held territory.    >'���-,  A day or two after my arrival  at Headquarters, where I was  held under open arrest or, iri  other words, confined to barracks, the court of enquiry was  held. It consisted of a panel pf  five officers - a Group Captain,  two Wing Commanders arid  two Squadron Leaders. Had it  led to a court martial 1 would  have been provided with #  defence counsel, but, seeing  that it was a preliminary iri^  vestigation only, I was on my  own.:   .        :::.>-;-;v.^.;;':���.;���. '^  It was all very formal. After  each charge was read I was asked how I wished to plead and  then marched out of the room  while the presiding officers  debated the pros and cons of  the matter. When they had  reached some kind of,a decision, I was marched back in and;  informed of their verdict. Then  the next charge was proceeded  with and so on until all the  charges had been dealt with. I  pled not guilty to them all and  , then asked and received their  permission to tell my story, not  as a non-commissioned officer  speaking to those of superior  rank, but on a man-to-man  basis. I cannot remember all  that I told them, but I em-;  phasized the conflict of perf  sonalities that had existed between the messing officer and  myself and I even told them a  little, although not all, of my  affair with Lisalotta.  The first two charges concerning the illegal and improper  use of a military vehicle  without permission were summarily dismissed because of the  lack of any supporting  evidence. Apparently they had  been unable to find the requisition form that I had allegedly  forged. (I had taken care of  that, or at least my sergeant  friend in the M.T. Section had,  after my presenting him with a  bottle of French cognac.) Once.  again the more serious charges  relating to my affray with  Flt./Lt. F. could not be  substantiated, as each and  every one of my cooks and  helpers had attested to the fact  that, to the best of their  knowledge, the s.o.b. had tripped over one of the guideropes  and struck his head on some  unascertained object.  Anyway, the hearing went on  and on, until I am of the opinion that the officers grew tired  of listening to all the conflicting  testimony that was being  presented. After I had been  marched out of the enquiry  room for the fifth time, there  was a wait of almost half an  hour before I was recalled to  . hear the verdict. The Group  Captain, acting as spokesman,  went over the charges one by  one and, much to my surprise,  announced that I had been  found not guilty on all counts.  _ There just wasn't enough concrete evidence that would warrant their ordering my court  martial; To my astonishment,  he went on to say that the  records showed that I had been  a diligent and^ conscientious  worker both in the ranks and as^  an :N.C.O. and that they wer_  proud  of me!   Ttiey were  unanimous in recommending  that I be sent to a rest camp until such time as my number  came up for repatriation to  ��� Canada.  Even  after  I had  shaken hands with each and  every one of them,  I still  couldn't believe it.  I think I was still in a daze  when I headed for the bright  lights'of Piccadilly that evening. The war was over and done  with. I was free man and I could  do more or less as I pleased. I  still recall fondly how I  celebrated that night, but not  so fo'ndly the gargantuan  hangover j experienced on the  following morning! ���  Fully equipped  for all body and  paint repairs  Brian's Auto Body  MPmiit^  Beautiful bodies are our business    JB85-9844  Wtotm Spmd ty  CARMEL  ACRYLIC SPA  78" across, 29" deep Octagon  Beige Marble with colour co-ordinated tiles  BAKER SPA PACKS - 2 SPEED SYSTEMS  S-2A - 6 kw Heater - 50 sq. ft. filter  .,...- air switch with 1 hp2-speed pump  Does hot include installation and electrical hook-up  $2800  |)��UA((LX  NORTH ROAD      886^7017  GIBSONS  KLAUS CATERING  AND BAKERY  -.

All I had to do was sit-in  the bleachers and make snide  comments about women dressed like bumblebees. And  anyway if all looked pretty  easy to me, A bit of running,  grooving to the music, a few  stretches. I couldn't understand what all the sweating and  huffing and puffing was  about. If only I knew then  what I know now.  One of the great challenges  of my life was trying to get put  of bed'the morning after I participated in the fitness;class.  The lady at the drugstore  smirked when I brought the  epsom salts to the counter. I  told her I sprained my ankle  skydiving, but I don't think  she bought it. In fact, she  looked suspiciously like;one of  the women I saw at the class.  The lifeguards at the pool asked me not to sleep in the  swirlpool and I told them I  was meditating. "Do you.  always snore when you  meditate?" one of them asked  me.     '.':;'"  In the past week I've been  dropping over to friends'  houses in the evening, moaning bravely in a corner until  someone relents and offers to  give me a massage. Recently,  porchlights have been going  off at an alarming rate as I  pull into these same friends'  Aunt Anastie to the rescue  by George Cooper  p When Aunt Anastie does get-  Un 10 doing something; just  Keep out' of t he way, says Un-  IC-|c Petrov. "Like it's a good  BJ.lca to handle a headstrong  [Korse' ironi .somewhere well  behind."  ^Anything    Uncle    Petrov  incw about horses he'd picked  g*p second-hand from farmers  l^lling^stories   in ;.Bushmill's  tjcneral'siorc where lie Worked  lor forty years for the elder  Mr. Bushrnill. The closest Un-;  cle Petrov "had ever come to  tj^ai farming was one day of  poking behind a four-horse  tender arid then he was fired.  ZVjiid that was a year of bumper  harvest  with   a   shortage   of  hjjp,   too.   The   trains   with  porkers from the ��ast were  lute getting to the Prairies that  ��2ar.    But    Uncle    Petrov's  $>oks twisted and fell as fast  a;S>;he set  them  up and the  farmer paid him off before the  <|ny was over.  **iBui .he did have a point  itKout maiuigiiiij a 'headstrong  IM/Se;-' keep oiii i>i the way.  (jfl&'e was one time I tried to  ffSOp ..out ��� of   her   \\av,   but  '-; 1 was eight, just be I ore 1 came  to live with Aunt Anastie and  Uncle Petrov for good.  The salt pork in the barrels  of oats that were stored in the  machine shed vyas all used up,:  and there was a bunch of Mr.  Bushrhiirs friends coming to  Sunday dinner. It was then  that Aunt Anastie looked at  the big white Leghorn rooster  speculatively like .an Inca high  priest eyeing his;; next human  sacrifice. The bird's barnyard  ' deportment had Aunt Anastie  seething all that first summer  she had come to spend as  housekeeper on Mr. Bushmill's big farm outside the  village. Aunt Anastie's sense  of what was .proper went  a good deal beyond even the  most strict Prairie matron's.  On wash day, for instance, her  line only showed sheets, pillow  cases, and Uncle Petrov's  socks and long woollen;underwear. Her own undergarments  were hidden inside the pillow  cases. .  "Look   at   that   good-for-  nothing strutting about. Just  ;like a  male."  I  don't  know  ���why.she-included''all males in  Iter condemnation since ali of  ihcin  were too  busy driving  USED BUII-DING SUPPLIES  Quality, used lumber, bricks, windows, lights, plumbing, etc.  P A B USED BUILDING MATERIALS  1947 Tannery Road, Surrey  MONDAY-SATURDAY 888-1311  We also buy used building materials -.:   :  horses or doing chores to get  any strutting in. j ^ : :;  Once she had rushed broom  aloft halfway across the barnyard to swat that rooster? in  the tail feathers just as he was>  getting his footing atop a  ci ouehihg. hen. The. rooster  flew at her, but the broom was  too much for him. He didn't  >eem to crow with the same  cockiness after that.  "He'll do just fine prr'-thjfe  ';iilaftere^ync]^y.;,^0.1-;-^'atc(^  li i 11 i-this Tafiefnobn^bby? "zgM  Now I "was deathly scared of  the rooster and one'shprt dash  pretending   1   was  after  him  took me around the manure  pile and the chance to duck into the weeds beyond to hide.  Aunt   Anastie   took   up   the  chase and finally closed in on  him. Waving:her apron like a  hoeaded    bullfighter,    Aunt'  Anastie   got   the   rooster   to  lunge at it and up-ended him  with her free hand.  ���'Come out of those weeds,  boy, and get the axe ready."  I bore no malice towards the  rooster and I was c|iiire i nc I-  fective with the ' axe, . twice  burying it in the block a foot  from the feathered neck and  scarcely having the strength to  pry it loose.  Afterward she said, "Now  j'ust so you don't let me down  ayain, boy, when 1 tell you to  do something, you'll not go to  yoiir Tom Mix movie Saturday  in the town."  Why, oh why could she not  have cut me off from Sunday  dinner,  driveways.    They   must   be  phoning ahead.  After a week of massages  and saunas, not to mention  treatments from' my live-in  chiropractor, I'm about back  to normal--, which, judging  from the results of the fitness  class, may not be that great a  condition to be back to.  .   .  There are many more  muscles in the body than you  would think. I don't know  what all their riamies are, but  most of mine are^nqt too crazy  about me right now; It would  appear I've been neglecting  them for some thirty-odd  years. Maybe if I had just proceeded like a restrained  novice, instead of acting like  John Wayne trying to take  Guadalcanal,. I might have  weathered the regimen with  slightly more aplomb and  poise.  You see, my problem was  that I wanted to show Rieta  Hansen, the local guru of the  fitness programmes - who is  leaving us shortly for  Australia, by the way - that I  could nonchalantly whip  through the exercises without  enduring so much as a lost  bead of perspiration or an errant gasp of breath. Nonchalant ended about the time  my hips told my back to put  my legs down Or they were all  going to be finding new homes  for themselves somewhere else  on my body.  During   the   push-up   segment, when I realized Rieta  Was going to outlast me,  I  sprung up suddenly, deciding I  hadn't taken enough pho'to-  graphs���'���>. for   the   newspaper.  Hell, I only had abbut twenty  at the time. I received know- '���'';  ing looks fr;pm several of the  exercisers around me.  '';' My original plan had been  to try arid keep up with Alison  Watt, who I ��� had interviewed)  the previous week. She had  seemed one of the most fit and  capable participants, and if"I  could keep up with Alison I  knew  I was in pretty good  shape. After watching her rattle off leg raises in double time  while rny own Je^.were.doing  ; an impression of silly putty, I  knew I was beat. It's a good  thing the meek are going toln-  herit the earth.  What Rieta and Alison both  thought to be most important  about the fitness classes was  . the  positive, mental  attitude  ^hich the classes cultivated in  .those who had always believed  physical exercise to be about  .as much fun as slave labour in  Siberia. So, if your rear end is  ;fast becoming the size of your  "garage, or if you can hide a  small child between the layers  of your stomach, or if you're  just   tired   of   commercials  which remind you of our iron-  poor blood, then try a little  fitness. You will enjoy! Just  don't expect miracles,  Rieta  said. It takes time and commitment.  And listen, if you decide to  go to fitness, my porchlight is  always on.  iliiMiiliii  ;���:���- **i~'���������#-"���������������'��� ���'���,:'' ^..v ^--''  GOOD NUTRITION  NO HUNGER PAINS  NO DRUGS  DRINK MILKSHAKES &  EAT REGULAR FOODS  MAINTAIN ENERGY  NO MEETINGS TO  ATTEND  NO EXERCISE  NO GIMMICKS  MONEY-BACK  GUARANTEE  SUBSTANTIAL WEIGHT  LOSS & INCH LOSS  CONSIDERABLE  SAVINGS ON  FOOD BILLS  NO MONTHLY DUES  Phone  885-733Z  5* c a t _:  ^t  V  ,.-7i  M  4  Other Specials Too  at The Book Store  Cowrie Street, Sechelt  885-2527  BABYSITTING  .

Lyn Kinsey, his wife  Yvette and son Derry, returned  from a year in Perth and his exchangee here, Brian Byrne and  his family returned to western  Australia after a year spent-,  teaching at Elphinstone.  Another Elphinstone teacher,  Bob Graham, and his family  departed to spend a year in  Perth and Bob's counterpart,  Steve Woodhouse and his wife  Sharon arrived to experience  Supernatural B.C. and^  Elphinstone.  The Kinsey family odyssey  began a year ago with three  weeks spent in up-country  Malaya. Lyn reports sadly that J  it is no longer "the Malaya of-  Somerset Maugham and the tea,  plantation owner". The area is?  rapidly becoming modernized;  and they have "the craziest  drivers in the world". >  Settling down in Perth required adjusting to very hot;  dry summers with no rain; it  was 43 degrees for a week last  January. It is a climate where  "fof three months you look for  shade, not sun" said Lyn. Ad^  justing to winter was not dif^  ficult as it is even wetter than  the Sunshine Coast, although  not as cold.  .  The Kinseys lived in "affluent suburbia" where the  usual North American symbols  of affluence, swimming.pools?  boats, and video recorders wer��  much in evidence. This was a  contrast to their previous  Australian experience when  they spent two years in a small  country town in southern  Queensland.  Perth, the Garden City, is  "beautifully set out" built on  sand and irrigated by artesian  water which keeps the city  always green. "The population  is fantastically sport's  oriented" observed Lyn.  Everyone plays sports from the  suburban mother who spends  most days on the tennis or  squash courts, to the,children  who play in highly organized  leagues for every conceivable  sport, to the older residents  who are devoted to lawn bowls.  The beaches are magnificent  and although a shark watch is  kept they do not pose the same  threat as they do on the east  Australian beaches.  Lyn taught at Greenwood  High School which is a school  of 1,300 students and 85  teachers, imaginatively designed with each classroom a  separate building in a park-like  setting.. Due to its natural  resources western Australia is a  very wealthy state and spends a  considerable amount on education.  The administrative hierarchy  is very centralized with the  Western Australia Education  Department in Perth controlling the whole state system.  Highly competitive state  wide government exams determine the future of all school  leavers although teacher  evaluation also plays a role in  determining final grades.  "Teachers over there generally  seem happier and less  pressured," said Lyn, although  teacher "burn-out" is beginn  ing to be talked about. All  secondary teachers have 20 per  cent preparation time.  Lyn noted that the same pro- '  blems which afflict our education system are becoming evi-'  dent "down under". The, attitudes of students are changing, family patterns are changing as many more single parent  families emerge and employment opportunities for school  leavers are diminishing rapidly.  No smoking or gum-chewing  was allowed at Greenwood but  the traditional school uniform  was slowly disappearing. There  is a strong movement from  state to private schools in  Australia and iri fact 23 per cent  of the schopl population is in \  private schools.  Derry, a grade nine student,  liked the sports oriented  lifestyle but found that at the  large school he attended he had  more homework, more  discipline arid less free time  than here. Also, school  uniform was compulsory at his  school.  Major events of,'82 in  Australia included ; the Commonwealth Games, t4a  marvelous spectacle", said  Lyn; massive lay-offs of steel  and coal workers in eastern  Australia and tax evasion  schemes rocking the Liberal  Fraser government.  The "worst drought in living  memory" grips much of inland  Australia, but not the west  which had record wheat  harvests.  Aboriginal land claims to  vast mineral-rich areas are  creating controversy. Some environmental protesters spent  Christmas in jail in Tasmania  Sunshine Coast  as a result of efforts to stop the  Tasmanian government dami^  ming the Franklin River, one of-  the world's great wild rivess^  recently declared a Wor3a��  Heritage Site. '     - 2.'  The economic downturn *_��;  just hitting Australia and Lyfi;  predicts that 1983 will be a yea��  pf widespread unemployment  there, particularly for young'  people. .-���'*$  The Kinseys travelled extensively in western Australia a$i_;  particularly enjoyed the gcjlcf.  mining towns of Kalgoorliean��|  Coolgardie and the magnijFil  cent scenery of the southwest;  corner around Albany. Th^|;  were impressed by the great  variety of western Australia  wildflowers and the Kauri an#  Jarrah forests which equjjf  B.C. forests in size. ��<�����  :.";.'-.- *�� ���   -*  ��� . j '        '    ,"������  On their way back to Canada'  the Kinseys spent a few weeks3n;  Queensland renewing frientft  ships.

Closing the book on 1982 helps  put out of mind the effects of  high interest rates, bad  economic policy and the  resulting recession.  Yet,  Christmas remains a  time for celebration, and for  hope. It is the season in which  we can reaffirm the values of  peace and fellowship in the  knowledge that human will and  effort can indeed make this a  better world.  In a recent segsip.n of the  ��+"B,C. _j*s��Klaitur^0^ve Barrett:  <���   said ''more than anything'else,  beyond specific programmes,  beyond promises, people need  hope. When they lose hope,  they lose the potential of  gathering the forces, to take  them through the crises they  meet;"  In this season we hope for  economic leadership to secure  economic stability for our  families and our children. We  look for a chance to make the  democratic process work and  commence a new beginning.  We hope that the goal of  peace will come a little closer  and that leaders of the major  powers negotiate in good faith  .toward disarmament.  We look for hope that our  privince and our nation will  move, closer to the ideals of a  society based upon human  fellowship and human dignity.  But, most of all, we should  remember that our hopes will  be realized only if all of us strive  to make this a better world for  ourselves and for each other.  As J.S. Woodsworth said in  his famous prayer:  We are thankful for these  and all the good things in life.  We recognize that they are part  of. our common heritage, and  come to us through the efforts  of our brothers and sisters the  world over. What we desire for  ourselves we wish for all. To  this end, may we take our share  in the world's work and the  world's struggle.
