Indian. Alliance met Friday  night in Vancouver at a reception given by the Alliance to  celebrate substantial achievements and pay due recognition to  the various individuals who have been instrumental in the  recent progress of the Indian people of B.C. Over 200 guests  attended the reception, including Liberal Senator Ray Per-  reault.  The B.C.Indian Alliance was initially formed in 1974 by the  Sechelt, Musqueam, and Squamish Bands. It was felt by band  leaders at that time that a coalition was needed between these  urban-located bands to deal with problems of a different nature  from those facing rural bands. This coalition's show of organized power brought about many needed changes in both Federal  and Provincial legislation regarding Indian Affairs.

"r ��� -  i-j^Hwawwry*  Motelmen  fight back  The    Sunshine   Coast    Motel  Owners Association, an affiliate  of  the   B.   C.   organization,   is  battling back after the disastrous  decline in their business which  followed    last   year's    dramatic  increase in the ferry rates.   The  .local motel owners have already  ^produced and distributed 10,000  "copies of an attractive black and  *yel!6w booklet which incorporates  'maps of the area from Langdale  ;to Lund. The booklets have gone  ;6ut   to   tourist   centres   in   the  -United   States   and   in   Alberta  ���and a second and up-dated printing is already being planned.  7 A  prominent   feature   of  the  booklet is the included "Sunshine  Dollars" which will be honoured  by participating hospitality merchants. Spokesman for the motel  owners, Lou Baldwin of the Big  Maple Motel in Sechelt, stressed  in a conversation with the Coast  News that other members of the  business  community  were  welcome to participate in the Sunshine Dollars program  on  payment of a small fee.    Morgan's  Men's  Wear  in  Sechelt   is   an  example of a participating store  which is not directly related to  the hospitality trade.  Baldwin said that the Sunshine  Dollars program had been 'devised to counteract negative  publicity about the high cost of  ferry    transportation'. "The  beauty of this scheme," said  Baldwin, "is that a visitor spending a hundred-dollars on the  Sunshine Coast/would in effect  Have his ferry costs borne by the  local motel operators and merchants."  .; The local motel operators are  hoping that they will have their  attractive booklet on the ferries  in the very near future.  Gibsons  vicinity  "We remind our readers in the  Gibsons area that Wednesday,  December 7th is the designated  date for the initial meeting of the  Gibsons Vicinity Planning Committee.

Several of his columns which  first appeared in the Coast  News have been picked up and  used in Vancouver magazine.  The issue of the magazine which  is presently current is carrying  the column and poem that  Trower wrote for this paper a  few months ago called Atlantic  Crossing and more will appear in  coming issues.  In addition to .this local west  coast recognition Trower has a  book coming out early in the new  year. It will be published in.  Toronto by McLelland and Stewart and will be titled .Ragged  Horizons. Ragged 'Horizons  will carry a larger selection and  variety of work than Trower  has heretofore released for  publication and it is believed'  that its appearance will establish him as being more than  just a logger who writes poetry  but rather as one' of Canada's  foremost  poets   who just   happened  to  have  been   a  logger1  for twenty years.  And if this were not enough,  Trower is busy compiling a revised - and updated version  of his very popular book of  logging poems. Between the Sky  and the Splinters. The re-issue  is tentatively entitled Bush  Poems and will feature the  truly    magnificent    illustrations  of logger cartoonist Buz Griffiths,  The Coast News congratulates  its friend and columnist. We feel  that the recognition Peter Trower  is now receiving is both well-  deserved and long overdue.  On Page Number Six of this  paper you will find reproduced  one of the Buz Griffiths illustrations along with the Trower  poem, Goliath Country, for which  it is the illustration.  night dinner included Senator  Guy Williams, Chief Bill Mitchell  and Joe Mitchell of the Desolation Sound Band, Bill Baker from  Capilano, Chief Joe Matthias  from Squamish, the Mayor, or  Richmond Gil Blair.

All were  praised for their efforts on behalf  of B.C. Indians.  Political  representatives   Jack  Pearsall and Don Lockstead were  "in attendance.

Perraeult laid aside  the prepared notes of his speech  and. made' an impromptu rebuttal. Perreault pointed out  that he had been involved in the  extension of the   B.  C. fishing  limits from three to two hundred  miles. The Liberal senator said  that the new fishing regulations  would make Indian fishermen  among the richest in the world  and said that, with all due respect  to the previous speaker it was his  opinion that Ottawa was listening  to the In dian people.  The warmest, applause of the  night, however, was reserved for  the Grand Chief George Matthias  who presented the guests with a  remarkable array of west coast  culinary    delights. Everyone  present was most impressed with  his marvellous cooking ability  including his brother Chief Joe  Matthias of Squamish who hoped  that his brother would visit him  more often.

(TM)  Four advanced teachers. Rick  Weberg, Douglas Walker, and  Bob and Marilyn Pepper will  be conducting an advanced  course for those who have been  practicing meditation for at  least six months, of which there  are approximately 150 on the  Sunshine Coast.  Twenty years ago Maharishi  Mahesh Yogi pioneered TM in  North America. To date there are  upwards of one and a half million  people in one hundred and forty  different countries practicing  this consciousness-expanding  science.  TM is designed to bring one's  body * lto harmony with its surroundings. Through meditation  and increased awareness a person  experiences a marked decrease  in tension and its related body  ailments. With the advancement  in awareness a person finds that  their time is utilized to the  maximum and latent talents  begin to develop.  TM has a following in different  religions around the world and  is said to add to the appreciation  of a person's individual form  of worship.  The Maharishi himself is the  perfect template for his own  teachings, sleeping an average  of iwr> to four hours a day and  maintaining a vibrant vitality.  In 1975 it was announced that  the Dawn of.the.Ag��.Qf��EnIighten.-  ment had arrived. At that time  over 900 cities throughout the  world had achieved a 1% population of practising meditators  and people were beginning to  experience the phenomenon  of lightness during meditation.  In surveys done in Vancouver  and Victoria a year and a half  ago it was noted by the TM  foundation that crime was down  16% and sickness and accidents  dropped 10%. In a conversation  between Douglas Walker and  Art Phillips in Vancouver, the  former mayor said it might be  difficult to get the chief of police  to agree with those . figures  but he personally had noticed  that people's thinking seemed to  be more responsible.  With the dawning of the Age  of Enlightenment, the Maharishi  began tutoring the initiated  in the teachings of the Siddhis  which are a series of yoga sutras  developed by Patangali over  2,000 years ago.  The Siddhis are an advanced  school of enlightenment now  available to anyone once the required standards have been at  tained. In the news lately different phenomena such as levitation, the rendering of invisibility and greatly increased physical  senses have been in the headlines.  In some cases when a person's  hearing has been tested while  he is in a state of enlightenment  the machinery had too small  a scope and more instruments  were required. These1 are some  of the effects possible to a person  with expanded consciousness  although they are not the goal,  which is to live in perfect har  mony with one's self and surroundings.  Both TM teachers Bob Pepper  and Douglas Walker state that  they have achieved this goal  and have experienced the above  phenomena and will eventually  pass on the experience to interested scholars. It is not known  at this time if the course at Lord  Jim's will include this as it is  found to be prefereable to teach  this on their own property where  they can be free from distractions  In the near future a decision from  the main centre in Switzerland    be appearing on the Merv Griffith:  will decide this.

Hydro undoubtedly stands alone in terms  of its arrogant disregard for the wishes of  the common man. Its present chief  executive, Bob Bonner, has been the  Attorney General for the province for  several years under Bennett Senior,  and he has been the chief executive  officer of MacMiilan Bloedel, which  position he,left to assume his present  position as the Hydro boss. Bonner is  almost certainly the single most powerful man Un British Columbia. Whatever  Bonner "wants Bonner gets and Bonner  appears" to want ever more and ever  larger, power installations. The word  restraint-appears to be missing from his  vocabulary. He is the last of the full  pelt; unrestrained bigness boys and all  over.the province his minions are planning dams and power lines as though  there were absolutely no tomorrow.  Bonner .dismisses as fanciful the development of alternate sources of power;  he treats those who are expressing concern about the effects of this giant  schemes'on the environment with barely  disguised -contempt. As a longtime  member of the Tripartite Commission  he is one,of the two hundred or so most-  powerful men in the world,- and he  reminds one of what Cassius says sourly  of Julius Caesar in Shakespeare's play:  "Why, man he doth bestride the narrow  world like a Colossus/And we petty men  do peep about between his huge legs/  To find ourselves dishonourable graves."  It would appear that an overweening  arrogance is an inevitable concomitant  of long-held power and Bonner has  been a power in this province whatever; the democratic tides for twenty  years arid it is the man's own-arrogance  we-see reflected in the dealings of his  corporation   with   the   general   public.  Locally the concern about the use of  pesticides in the vicinity of the Sunshine  Coast's drinking water has long been a  source of concern and citizens have  written to Hydro and to the government  about those concerns. The writer has  seen several of the replies sent to the  letters of concern and they are a form  letter, virtually indistinguishable whether  they come from the provincial cabinet  or a hydro department.  John Hind-Smith expresses himself  as hopeful that a recent meeting with  Hydro officials betokens a willingness  to consider the views of the populace.  Would that it were so, but the business  of the power line that Hydro wants to  string over Sakinaw Lake would seem to  belie the reasoned concern that Hind-  Smith is hopeful of discerning. The  representatives of the corporation time  their visit with the middle of an election  campaign and then announce that the  end of December is the limit for public  input on the matter. Concerned citizens  have barely time to consider the project  before being told that there is nothing  for them to say. With all due respect  to Mr. Hind-Smith it seems from this  point of view that here we have another  token consultation that we have seen  before from government corporations  with the decisions made before the  public is consulted.  At the time of the present writing it  would appear that Bob Bonner and B.C.  Hydro are virtually unstoppable. But  tyrants have tripped over their own  arrogance many times in human history  and there is a growing concern in many  people that we begin, to take stock  very carefully of the results of our actions  on the fragile ecology that supports  us. If B.C.Hydro continues to ride  roughshod over those concerns it might  well find itself being opposed by significantly   more   than   letters   of   concern.  Breathing spell  Quite apart from the looming shadow  of B;C.Hydro, this has been a quiet  season on the Sunshine Coast. After  the elections there has been a breathing  spell before the new councils and local  governments swing into their stride  next week. After the major snow storm  the weather too has been extremely  benign of; late with a gentle December  sun working magic with the lighting  effects from its position low in the  southern sky.  Next week, of course, all the local  governments will be in action and no  doubt the sound of disputation will  again be heard in the land. This weather  too cannot last forever and next week  may see us battling howling winds and  rain or snow. What we have in the  meantime is a breathing spell from the  winds both of climate and politics and  very pleasant it has been. Such days as  these are to be treasured.  Christmas shopping  The editor of this paper took a rare  trip to Vancouver early last Saturday  morning and found the ferry absolutely  thronged with people. It looked as if  the Sunshine Coast residents were  making a mass exodus.  Of course the bulk of those travelling  were taking their hard-earned money into  the big city to spend it on Christmas  presents and this does seem rather  strange. From the few experiences  that he has to draw on of shopping in  the cities at Christmas  time,  the  self  same editor knows what a frantic and  tiring business it inevitably is.  Surely with the pleasant shopping  places we are developing here oh the  Sunshine Coast the day is coming soon  when the bulk of our populace will decide  to save the wear and tear on their nerves  by strolling or driving into their nearest  local shopping place and doing business  with their neighbours. Does anyone  really enjoy struggling around the city  at this, the maddest of commercial  seasons when pleasant and relaxing  alternatives are at hand locally.  from the files of Coast News  5 YEARS AGO  At the School Board meeting: Discussion included the point that under  present school population circumstances,  it would not appear likely that another  secondary school would be built in  Sechelt.

A liquor outlet for Sechelt was discussed at the Board of Trade meeting.  25 YEARS AGO  At the Village Commission meeting  note was taken of the large amount of  cars parked and stored in the streets  and lanes of the village, impeding  traffic in those areas.

Fresh from the treeless surroundings of Fort Qu'Appelle,  Saskatchewan, Fletcher pre-empted 160 acres of forest west of Pratt Road, from Highway  101 south to Chaster Road, in 1888, before any of these thoroughfares existed. For years  he logged the plateau along skidroads that.converged at the head of what is now called  Charman's Canyon. Winding down that ravine, the Fletcher skidroad ran beside the site  now occupied by Kinsmen Park, and ended at tidewater not far from where the pioneer is  seen sitting years after his days in the woods were done. Beyond him appears a retired  steel lifeboat from the old Canadian Pacific Empress of Japan. This craft was used for  some years by Phil Fletcher andftrank Wyngaert as a feed and supply barge, towed by  Phil's Nalaco.

' ��� .'������ 'A^/'X'"  Musings  John Burnside  There really is nothing quite  like west coast snow for driving  on. I am not unacquainted with  snow. In a Scottish childhood  there were occasionally snow  storms and I was never particularly happy about . snow then  either for blowing off the Atlantic  Ocean in Southern Scotland it  was exactly the wet unpleasant  business it is here. Of course.  I was never called upon to drive  in it there. My relationship  with it was limited to the odd  rather half-hearted attempt to  pretent to myself that I was  enjoying tobogganing and even  more half-hearted attempts to  enter into the spirit of mass  snowball battles. After ten  minutes of togogganing I was wet  and miserable and the trudge to  the top of the hill seemed to  outweigh the momentary exhilaration of the descent. Snowballing was worse. My woolen  gloves got wet, my hands got  cold and I never seemed to  manage to hit anyone that I  threw at, certainly not as often  as I got hit. No, I'm afraid that  the storied pleasures of winter  childhood seemed to me all to  literally a wet blanket.  When I lived in Montreal it  was a little better. I did learn  to skate on the city's outdoor  skating rinks. Mind you, as a  woefully inept beginner of things  I retreated to a marsh in a nearby  wood where I cleared off the ice  and spent the first day going  through the agonies of ineptitude  in isolation. When I learned,  though, I was fairly proficient.  Usually the Montreal born that  whizzed around and by me were  not younger than five years old.  My brother was thirty at' the  time. I was fifteen and he too  was learning to skate. We had  races, of course. I was faster on  the straight stretches but there  was something about his cunningly bowed legs that made him  faster on the turns so we usually  ended up about even.  As anyone who has ever  wintered there can tell you,  Montreal is no slouch in the  matter of snowfall and since it  frequently   seemed   to  come   in  great eighteen-inch deep loads it  rendered life often chaotic.  Stumbling through knee-deep  snow in inadequate toe-rubbers  which always seemed to fall off  when you were struggling to  catch that exceptional bus or  streetcar that did manage to put  in a belated appearance was a  dismal business. Of course,  there were also weekends in the  Laurentian mountains north of  Montreal where we went skiing.  The snow was often crisp and  lovely under clear blue skies but  again the young fellows that I  went skiing with were'much more  advanced in the art than I was  and I was too impatient and too  proud to spend much time on the  learner slopes. As a consequence  much of my downhill progress  must have looked quite bizarre.  Somehow I never acquired the  requisite garb and my stove  pipe legs were accentuated by  tight jeans while my upper half  was encased in bulky coverings.  My-lack of training brought me  hurtling dangerous and absurd  down many hills that I never  should have been allowed on.  On one occasion at Mont Trem-  blaht I came hurtling down at  what seemed like a hundred miles  an hour absolutely out of control  and straight towards a long line  of people on skis who were  waiting to use the T-bar. I hurtled towards them howling a desperate warning and some of the  impromptu gymnastics that they  produced as they tried to maneou-  ver out of my path were quite  remarkable. Somehow miraculously I sped through the line  to the accompaniment of curses  of rage and threats of physical  maltreatment. I made no attempt  to stop but raced on till I was  virtually at the car park where I  took off the skis and left the  scene, reasoning that the hill  for a variety of reasons was no  longer a safe place for me on  that particular day.  ��� From Montreal I moved to the  Klondike and in Dawson City I  met my favourite snow. It snows  very seldom in Dawson City and  very gently, dry. light powder  snow which even at the end of  the winter you could tusually  plow easily through though there  was the accumulation of some  seven months by that time. It  was particularly beautiful on the  still, cold nights when under  moonlight it turned the whole  valley there at the conjunction of  the Yukon and Klondike Rivers  to silver and the smoke from  wood stoves stood straight up in  the air and the whole silver  splendour seemed to belong to  me alone as I moved through  the silence. The only unfriendly  thing that the powder snow ever  did to me in Dawson was during  my first December when I went  plunging through it down the*  hill where the graveyard is to  the highway below. I was wearing gum boots and I had my  pants, three pairs, tucked inside  them and the snow got kicked  into my boots as I went down  the hill. The highway when I  reached it was hard-packed snow,  on the gravel and I had the  eerie sensation of hearing my  footsteps on the road without  any accompanying feeling of  walking for I had frozen my  feet quite badly and was forced  to wear bedroom slippers to  school for nearly a month. Of  course I discovered 1 liked wearing bedroom slippers to work and  so an eccentricity was born.  From the still, cold serenity  of the Yukon I moved to the  Crowsnest Pass and found that in  Fernie they enjoyed a snowfall  in excess of twenty feet per  year. I shovelled snow for paths  to the doors of houses that had  all but disappeared; I shovelled  snow from the driveway to carports; I dug automobiles out of  innumerable drifts; I shovelled  snow off the roof of my house  before it turned to ice and crushed the building. It seemed that  I shovelled snow virtually every  day. When it rains and people  complain I think to myself that \  we don't have to shovel it an&7  am ever gratefuL To balance the\  foregoing, on fine days in the  Pass I often went snowshoeing  among the marvellous mountains  and these were among my favou-  ~k Continued on page 3:  Slings & Arrows  George Matthews  School Board budget time  usually is accompanied by a  diversity of opinion, both public  and private, on the wisdom of  spending more or less money on  education. Last week, in an  editorial, written in his usual  crisp, clear and decisive style,  The Press editor Dick Proctor  fired the opening blast in the  annual dialogue. It is Dick's  view, not an unpopular nor unreasonable one, that the school  budget needs a good trimming.  He reasons that with enrollment  up by only four students in the  district, the board's increased  budget is excessive. The editorial  went on to opine that education  seems to be costing more and  more while at the same time not  providing value for money spent.  I value Dick's opinion and believe what he had to say is worth  consideration. It is true that  educating our kids costs us more  every year, even though enrollments generally are beginning  to decline. However, if we take  a look at what the modern school  has to provide for both students  and community, compared to  what used to happen in Dick's  little red school house, maybe  we can understand why the cost  is justified.  First of all we've come a long  way from the time all a good  teacher needed was a sharp stick  and a bare patch of ground.  Experts who know about such  things tell us that the explosion  of knowledge since World War II  has reached such proportions that  in the next fifty years man will  acquire more knowledge than he  acquired in the first million  years of his existence.  While that doesn't mean  schools will have to teach all that  new knowledge (schools now  don't teach one tiny part of one  'percent of what is known to man)  but what it does mean is they  will have to do their best to prepare students to acquire what  knowledge they will need. We  might be able to slow down the  "knowledge explosion" so that  it takes a hundred years to  double ' knowledge instead of  fifty- 'but1 -we; have i no i guarantee  that' other countries '- and other  peoples will go along with a  learning moratorium. No, I suspect we will have to go along with  the Jones and Ivanovitches and  try to keep up the best we can.  Schools nowadays do more,  and teach more than they ever  have before - and that costs  money. I'm not suggesting that  more knowledge is necessarily  a good thing, it hasn't made us  all that happier, but once you get  started on the learning mill,  you just can't stop.  There was a time when all a  kid had to know was how to read,  write and add numbers. In those  days life was simple. If you had  a strong back or a sharp wit  you could get along very nicely.  These days, the complexity of  the work place requires skills  unheard of forty or fifty years  ago. Reading, writing and adding  numbers, while still the core  of learning how to learn, have  lost importance to judgement,  interpretation,  definition,  expo  sition, argument and any number '  of other skills needed to cope with '.  living.     Schools no longer  are "  obliged to  merely teach facts, ".  they are responsible, or feel they  are responsible, to try to bring  their  clients   into'a   "state   of  grace".   It would be nice, easy ���  and cheap if schools could go  back to the time when a little  readin',   writin'   and   'rithmetic ]  were all they were responsible  for.  Any kid in grade six can read, '  write and count, but can he do !  those things, and all of the other '  things   he   has   to   know,   well \.  enough to survive in the modern  world?    Anyone who graduated ,  from a high school twenty years ;  ago would find it very tough to  cope with  schools these   days. ;  The range, complexity and intensity of the knowledge trans-  mitted in a school today is in- *  credible. \  It used to be that if you hired '  yourself a respectable spinster' '  with a year or two of finishing  school to teach your kids a few '  of the basics you had yourself a ;  good teacher. These days it is '  amost an impossible task for a-  teacher to teach what has to be ���  taught to as many as a hundred -  and twenty or thirty kids ranging ���  from the extremely slow to the '���  brilliant and still keep up with all *  of the new information that must  be taught and hopefully learned.  The modern school, like it or '  not, has become the father to '  fatherless children, the mother to  motherless children, the parent  to children whose parents don't  care; the guide, the mentor and ^  all kinds of other things it never *  ���especially   wanted   to   become.  Take one example, the tip of the '  iceberg  of responsibility   -   the  tendency  for more  students  to '  stay in  school longer.     A few  years ago, unsuccessful students. *  were gone into the world at grade '������  eight or at least grade ten.   Now '  these students are staying on.  These are students with all kinds'  of learning or social problems,  undreamed of and certainly un-'  discovered a few years ago.  Now'  teachers  haye  to try ��� to  detect'  these problems early enough so  that a solution can be found  -*  this takes time.    Once detected'  the  learning  problems  have  to"  be solved - often by one to one;  attention  - so that the  student  can find a way to cope with the-  rigors   of   advanced   education.  The time  and  money  required"  are staggering.  We have a wise and judicious"  school board - we have a very '  healthy tax base upon which to '  draw funds. Teachers would '  like to be doing more to help  kids - taxpayers would like us'to ;  do less.  Dick's editorial is  useful be7  cause it makes us stop and ponder "  the difference between modern ���  education and the little red school  house.  Once pondered, the facts  are  inescapable   -  schools   cost ���  more  because   they   are   doing  more and they will continue to ���  cost more as more has to be done.' ���  You can't get away from it Dick - ��� .  there's just no such thing as a.  free lunch.  Cynara  Last night, ah, yesternight, betwixt her lips and mine  There fell they shadow, Cynara! thy breath was shed  Upon my soul between the kisses and the wine;  And I was desolate and sick of an old passion,  Yea, I was desolate and bowed my head:  I have been faithful to thee, CynaraHn my fashion.  All night upon mine heart I felt her warm heart beat,  Night-long within mine arms in love and sleep she lay;  Surely the kisses of her bought red mouth were sweet;  But I was desolate and sick of an old passion,  When I awoke and found the dawn was gray:  I have been faithful to thee, Cynara! in my fashion.  I have forgot much, Cynara! gone with the wind,  Flung roses, roses riotously with the throng.  Dancing, to put they pale, lost lilies out of mind;  But I was desolate and sick of an old passion.  Yea, all the time, because the dance was long:  I have been faithful to thee, Cynara! in my fashion.  I cried for madder m usic and for stronger wine,  But when the feast is finished and the lamps expire,  Then falls they shadow, Cynara! the night is thine;  And I am desolate and sick of an old passion.  Yea hungry for the lips of my desire:  I have been faithful to thee, Cynara! in my fashion.  by Ernest Dowson  \>  i LETTERS to the EDITOR  Entertained    Defence  Editor: ��'-..,  We are entertained by the  verbal war between Fran Berger  and Mr. Matthews especially  because both have an easy flowing style of writing. We hope  that this war will not reach  nuclear proportions. That two  such good writers should billow  into the upper atmosphere,  aerosol and all, in a mushroom  could would be a pity.  Re: jogging, would this be  instead of or in addition to the  85 minutes I read one should  dance on the front lawn daily.  I tried it once. My puff gave  out in 20 seconds and I am not  fat but very skinny. In fact  when removing shirt and vest on  hot days for work outside, little  birds in trees keep chirping  "skinny, skinny, skinny."  Perhaps the fact of having  been born in 1892 in the reign of  the good Queen Victoria and  doing all the wrong things like  two fried eggs and. bacon for  breakfast and smoking tobacco  far too much, and lots of Nabob  but never herbal tea, may have  something to do with my present  unathleticalness.  At school when conditions  such as mud were too bad for  rugby football, we used to have  to do a cross-crountry run of  seven miles, and sometimes up  to the top of Beachy Head and  back. Some boys used to arrive  at the finish line green in the  face and vomiting. How about  that, Fran Berger?  Meanwhile, Fran Berger and  Mr. Matthews, keep up the war.  It makes good reading for these  wet days.  John S. Browning  RR#1, Sechelt  Carol ship  Editor:  Last year was our first Xmas  living in Gibsons.  Never shall I forget the feeling  of pure joy, hearing the sound of  Xmas Carols being sung from the  Carol Ship.  We had just finished decorating our home for Xmas. We  were looking forward to our  family coming to join us, when  my husband said, "1 hear singing.". ,.....,    -,,,.-���.,���.,,���,   ....    ,!���  On looking out of the win 7w,  what a delightful surprise met  our eyes. There before us, on  the calm moonlit waters, was the  coloured lighted Carol Ship.  Slowly it made its way along the  coast line of Gibsons.  I would like to know more  about, the Carol Ship. Does  this happen every year and if so  what year did it start? Who are  the carolers? Who is the owner  of the ship? What is the name  ofthe ship?  This lovely event happened  two nights in a row, two days  before Christmas.  Many, many thanks to all who  participated. I am sure we all  hope you will come again this  year.  (Mrs.) Violet Lynds  MUSINGS CONTINUED:  rite times.  But nowhere in all these snowy  places was there ever anything  that could quite compare with  the treacherous business of trying  . to move a motor ear in a reasonably controlled fashion along  these coastal roads after or  during a snow storm. After the  last one I'm seriously considering  cross-country skis as my preferred means of locomotion if  we have any more of it this  winter.  Editor:  I have never before written  a letter to the editor, and not  to confuse issues, I waited until  the local elections were over,  and I think my husband will not  be too happy about this effort.  The letter under the title  "In poor taste" in a local newspaper, and much scurrilous  previous correspondence printed  in this locality, prompts me to  reply to this last effort by a most  obviously insecure person,  accusing my husband Charles  Lee of "seeking recognition" was  undoubtedly the last straw which  broke the camel's back.  My husband needs no recognition, the local newspapers had  already made him the most easily  recognized man on the coast.  The Italian press, coast to  coast, have familiarized him and  his attainments to half a million  people. The British press has  been reporting him since 1929.  The Eastern U.S. press has had  a hand in recognizing him for  his commercial attainments.  He has been reported a'id  pictured on two continents conferring and working with laborers, workers, lords, dukes and  earls. His present recent friends  include artisans, tradesmen,  millionaires, federal politicians,  judges, and businessmen. The  rich and famous, the poor and  unknown.  His wartime exploits to do with  Arnhem, Normandy Invasion,  South East Asia command etc.,  are recognized m commendations  and recommendations in plenty.  He is a practicing Christian,  who has always given his "Biblical Tithe" to those less fortunate  than'himself, frequently when we  could ill afford it.  At age 63 he lay in the hospital  (after an accident) in a virtual  coma for seven weeks, emerging  paralysed down the left side,  and rehabilitated himself to his  present incredible fit state.  This Mr. Nicholson, is the man  you maligned so close \o Polling  day (which irom phoned in  messages of sympathy lost you  a certain eleven votes, and many  more unknown to me).  Recognition Mr. . Nicholson?  The people of Area 'C were  swift to RECOGNIZE him, the  Left, the. Right,and Centre, the  "Haves'?" and the "Have notsV  and gave him a big hand via the  ballot box. I do not need to detail  where you came in.  Mr. Nicholson, how could you  have been so small, you could  never fill his shoes, and certainly  not his shadow.  Am I prejudiced, I certainly  am. During forty years of mar-  raige, I have never once been  able to say "I am ashamed of  this man" because in the old  'fashioned sense of the word that  is just what he is, no more, no .  less, a MAN.  Mrs. Charles Lee  Thanks  Editor:  I would like to publicly express  my heartfelt thanks to Marg  Pearson of the Wilson Creek  Day Care Centre for arranging  transportation to bring my 3-year  old daughter into Sechelt during  last Wednesday's disastrous  snowstorm.  To Mr. Walter Tripp, who  volunteered to use his 4-wheel  drive for transportation up the  treacherous conditions of Davis  Bay, I am particularly grateful.  JudyMathon  Sechelt, B.C.  Committee?  Editor:  Reference your Nov. 29/77  edition, page 9, what in hell is  "Soames Point Green Belt Heritage Park Committee"? Never  heard of them and we've been  around this area half a lifetime  'and have lived here permanently  for over ten years. They certainly  must be a bunch of upstarts so  I'd be Very glad if they would  expose themselves and offer  membership to some real old  timers of the area.  H.F.Harris  Granthams Landing  Clarified  Editor:  Your November 29th issue contained a write-up headed 'Soames  Field as a Park', stating therein  that "there is a proposed housing  development of the property  which has been brought before  the Board by Gibsons Realty.''  There is no such thing. Gibsons Realty recently prepared an  appraisal of the property, evaluating it on the assumption that the  most likely buyer would be a  land developer, who would subdivide into lots. On this basis a  hypothetical subdivision was  prepared, and the gross proceeds  from the resultant lots determined. From the gross proceeds  were deducted all the various  costs that might be involved in  such a project, also the usual  allowance for profit, to arrive at  a figure which a buyer would be  willing to pay for the property,  in today's realty market.,  There is no way to evaluate  park land, - as such,- because  there is no market-place where  park land is bought and sold.  Any municipal authority considering  purchase  of  land   for  park purposes will have it appraised for its estimated market  value to the most likely buyer  of it, but they won't necessarily  use the appraised value in their  negotiations with the owner.  J. E. White  Gibsons Realty &  Land Development Ltd.  Objection  Editor:  To whoever took a group of  children to the Adventure Playground in Cliff Gilker Park Tuesday or Wednesday of last week,  and left the nearby area strewn  with orange peels, papers, half-  eaten sandwiches and juice cans.  Surely you don't allow your  children to throw their food and  garbage on the floor at home or  when visiting the homes of  friends? Next time you come to  the park please use the containers provided and leave everywhere as tidy as you found it,  so that all may enjoy the beauty  of unlittered woods and paths.

Western Canada Lottery Foundation  Changes in assessment law now makeit  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  will 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  laterinl978.  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. 7  The Assessor's estimate of your property's  actual value' (market value) is shown on  ; your 1978.Assessrnent;Notice.4;,..,.      ti Jt,,  : 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% (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.

IN THE HALLS OF HIGH ART  My days as an art-student come  back to me now in a confusion  of images triggered by the sketchbooks I still possess and sometimes wanly thumb through.  There, in stiffly-drawn succession, are the visual mementoes of  those lost days: fellow students  sketched in the act of sketching  someone else (for we were our  own constant models); Stanley  Park Zoo drawings of lazy seals  slumped on rocks Hke sacks of  meal, Durante-billed toucans and  the lugubrious, emu; beer-parlor  doodles of unaware derelicts and  vanished companions; the steeple  of the Catholic church on Dunsmuir Street that everyone drew;  the cover of an imaginary magazine called Westcoaster that  foretold the Raincoast Chronicles;  ink and watercolour landscapes  from field-trips and dim Gibsons  weekends; nude ladies sprawled  and posed in every conceivable  position, some of which may not  have been as uncomfortable as  my tense drawings suggest; the  view from a garret pad I had on  Melville Street showing a parking  -lot and a funeral-parlour. A  few of the drawings are copied  from books but the majority are  from life and comprise the only  journal I have of those odd times.  Herewith, some echoes.  I had just turned twenty-eight  with ten years of logging-camps,  pulp-mills, smelters and random  debauchery behind me, when I  enrolled at the Vancouver School  of Art. I was fresh from two  years in the multi-racial melting-  pot of the Kitimat aluminum-  plant and the sudden transition  from that grubby world to this  busy bastion of creativity was  bewildering at first. . Not too  many months before, I couldn't  have visualized such a pleasant  change in my fortunes. I had  more or less resigned myself to  some indefinite period of servitude in the potlines. Then my  brother Chris (who had got me  into that fine mess in the first  place) learned of a small legacy  being held in trust for us by an  uncle in England. We phoned  the uncle in question (rousting  the poor old chap out of bed  because of the time-difference)  and he confirmed the existence  of the money. It was our ticket  out of those dark, Satanic mills.  Pages from a Life-Log  Peter Trower  The Art School in the late  Fifties was still at its old location  on Hamilton Street. My primary  purpose in going there was to  try and improve my drawing  ability. I had been drawing and  selling cartoons for some years  but they were technically primitive and I wanted to become more  facile. I had hoped to concentrate  on graphics but first-year students were required to take a  full-curriculum including painting, sculpture and other subjects  in which I had small interest.  I accepted this stipulation and  commenced the course.  My       classmates       averaged  around eighteen, kids just out of  high-school for the most part.   I  felt very  old,   worldy-wise  and  artistically-inept . for the bulk of  them were much better than I  was).   Since.time hadn't scarred  me much as yet, I lied about six  years from my age and passed  myself   off  as   a   slightly-older  contemporary.     Somehow,   this  pointless   subterfuge   made   me  feel a bit less out of place.  . The first weeks were mainly  spent adjusting to this unaccustomed   environment.       I    was  introduced   to   such   unfamiliar  drawing    materials    as    conte'  crayons   and   Chinese   ink   and  stood self-consciously at an easel,  trying to render still-life arrangements of bottles and a sullen-  faced  male   model,   with   some  degree of accuracy.  My drawing  teacher was an outspoken man,  not   given    to    suffering    poor  draughtmanship gladly.     On  a  couple of occasions, he subjected  my efforts to withering criticism.  Knowing his remarks were basically well-intentioned, I accepted  them  philosophically.     Not  so,  one   hypersensitive   young   girl  called Grace.    Shattered by his  acidulous   comments,   she   fled  sobbing from the room and was  not   observed   around   the   Art  School again.  It was complsory -to take one  plastic art. After three sculpture  lessons, I realized I had no aptitude for this discipline whatsoever * and switched to pottery. -.  Although I worked my kick-wheel  assiduously, I wasn't much better  at this. The star of the pottery-  class was a student not long from  China, called Wayne N'Gan.  Wayne's English wasn't too  fluent but his all-round artistic  talents were unquestionable. We  became unlikely friends and  sometimes went sketching together after school. Wayne with  his effortless, Oriental calligraphy, could capture objects in  a few, deft lines while I scratched  away laboriously. He kept up  with his art after graduating and  is one of the foremost potters  in B. C. today.  After a few  months  of cast  drawings,        drapery-rendering  and other  uninspiring   activity,  word went round that we were  about to be introduced to  un-  draped female models.     There  was  a  definite  buzz  of randy  anticipation among certain of the  more   frivolous   male   students.  Our first model however, proved  to  be   a  dumpy  and   unpretty  woman, well past her prime and  about as erotic as a potato. There  was a little disappointed muttering as we committed her flaccid  contours to paper.     After this  initial    exposure,     the    whole  business became pretty routine.  Not all the models were as devoid  of physical charms as the first.  I still have some sketches of a  certain French girl who wouldn't  have looked out of place in a  Playboy centrefold.  One remarkable woman, not especially pretty  but resourceful,  did a sort  of  bump-and-grindless   strip-tease,  starting fully-clothed and finishing naked, instead of doffing an  offhand   robe   and   baring   all  immediately as the others did.  It was an impressive performance  that inspired some of the better,  drawings   in   my   sketch-book.  Word   went   round   later,   that  the  model  had been  fired  for  "being   provocative"    and    we  never saw her again.  I never saw much of my fellow  students after school. I generally  hit the uptown bars and hung out  with the Granville Street rounders -  where I could act;my; own age. 7,  Some   of   my   streetpals   were  extremely interested in the  "naked broad" aspect of Art  School. (1 have no doubt that I  stretched the truth here and  there about the allure of the  models.) One of them actually  went so far as to sneak in the  school to check the phenomena  out for himself.  I managed to scrape through  first year with unspectacular  marks. After a summer of blowpits in Port Alice and bakeries  in Vancouver, I returned to the  halls of high art. Most of my  classmates were back although a  few had fallen by the wayside.  Now we had achieved second-  year status, there was much talk  of acquiring studios. I threw in  with a couple of friends and we  rented an old advertising office  close to the Granville Bridge.  It was a gloomy place with small,  poky rooms. My friends were  deighted with it but I found it  depressing and seldom worked  there.  One of my co-renters was a  kid from the Interior called Kerry  Finch. Kerry was hooked on  surrealism and fond of bizarre  behaviour. He actually moved  into the mournful studio and  lived there frugally, subsisting  mostly on bread and cheese.  When the Beaux Arts Ball was  held, Kerry went as an old man  and subsequently refused to remove the gray dye from his hair.  He wore it that way for some time  in combination with Bermuda  shorts in mid-winter to the consternation of passers-by. Kerry's  studied eccentricities extended  to the classroom. He began  painting with a brush attached to  a long bamboo pole, fourteen  feet from the canvas, among  other stunts. Despite his grandstanding, Kerry was a gifted  artist and subsequently won a  scholarship to De Allende in  Mexico. Then, for some:inexplicable reason, he abandoned art  altogether and joined the Air  Force.  I was to defect much sooner  than Kerry however. A series of  calamities involving'"' my irame -  diate family made it impossible  for me to continue past Christmas  of that year. But by that time,  I was beginning to realize that I  was barking up the. wrong crea-  7tive*'treeK.'lhyli^ to ���  become a word-painter instead.

Weather  Although snow at sea level is  not unknown, generally the Sunshine Coast gets through the  month of November without any.  November this year, however,  was wetter and colder than usual.  203.2 mm of rain fell during  the month and 5.1 cms. of snow  which gave us a total precipitation of 213.1 mms. This level  of precipitation made November  1977 the fourth wettest November  in the last seventeen years behind November 1962, November  1973. and November 1975 which  was the wettest of all at 277-9  mm. In contrast, November 076  was the driest in seventeen years,  recording only 65.3 mm. The  average precipitation for the  month is 182.0 mm.

Ranniger  Model POC76B 886-9116  by Rae EUingham  Week commencing December 5th  General Notes: This weekend  will be a very idealistic time for  many of us as the Sun, New  Moon, Venus, and Neptune  bunch together in Sagittarius.  Thoughts and discussions will  focus on philosophical subjects  and the excitement of long distance travel. Later, Saturn becomes apparently stationary and,  reduces our hopes and dreams  to more practical considerations.  The last oil spill of the year and  other sea-related events will  make the headlines during this  period.       '  Babies arriving as the week  closes.will be true Sagittarians.  Loving to display a great sense  of freedom, many will be attracted to higher learning and long  distance travel. They will long  to be trusted and given plently  of rein.  Those of you born around Feb.  19, May 21, Aug. 23, and Dec. 22  should again remember that  every cloud has a silver lining.  ARIES (March 21 - April 19)  Your mind is now more serious  and turns towards deeper thoughts and subjects. Friends are  puzzled by your more philosophical outlook. Self-centred Aries  now considers others for a  change. Long distance communications are accented.  TAURUS (April 20 - May 20)  ��� Financial arrangements with  close associates increase during  the next few weeks. Loved ones>  may be impractical with their  side of the bargain so you have  to be gentle and persuasive.  GEMINI (May 21 - June 21)  All contracts and alliances,  both personal and business, have  to be double-checked for that  hidden snag you may have  skimmed.over. You may be on  the wrong track altogether. ���  Ignore the advice of loved ones  who are presently unrealistic.  CANCER (June 22 - July 22)  The focus is again on health,  employment, and service to  others where new conditions become unexpectedly confusing.  Vague or mysterious ailments  need immediate attention. Seek- ,  irig practical advice is the answer  to any present problems.  LEO (July 23 ��� Aug. 22)  Emphasis now falls on  more  pleasurable spare-time activities.  of   inspiration.      Dreamy   love  affairs are in the air.  VIRGO (Aug. 23 - Sept. 22)  Expect fresh domestic routines  and rearrangements as plans to  remodel or beautify the home  are discussed at length. Home  entertaining will renew hopes  this weekend. August 23rd  Virgos must look on the bright  side. Setbacks are temporary.  LIBRA (Sept. 23 - Oct. 23)  Accent is on all forms of communication. Letters, messages,  phone calls, short journeys and  visits will increase steadily and  keep you actively happy. Don't  misplace an important document.  SCORPIO (Oct. 24 - Nov. 22)  A new financial approach has  to be checked thoroughly so remember to read all the small  print. You're in the mood again  for splurging on luxurious but  unnecessary items. Do'you really  need them? Money disappears  mysteriously as the week closes.  Be warned.  SAGITTARIUS (Nov 23 - Dec 21)  Venus, passing through your  sign for the next three weeks,  encourages you to spruce up your  wardrobe and appearance. Many  of you make fresh idealistic  starts during this period. A  mysterious aura surrounds you  but others respect your hopes  and aspirations. Good luck.  CAPRICORN (Dec 22 - Jan 19)  You now withdraw from the  hustle and bustle and begin to  make plans in private. This is  your resting period. Use it  wisely and postpone important  projects till next year. Dreams  are again meaningful. Visits to  large institutions may be necessary.  AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 ��� Feb. 18)  New friends and acquaintances  will restore faith in your long-  range goals but, nevertheless,  all schemes should be checked  for impracticalities. Socially,  a very fulfilling and happy period  is approaching.  PISCES (Feb. 19 - Mar. 20)  With the spotlight now on your '  position and reputation, the  possibility of self-deception becomes apparent. Criticism of  your recent achievements should  be accepted gracefully. The truth  hurts but the confusion slowly  clears up.

The public  turned out in fine style to enjoy  our annual Hawaiian luncheon.  The buffet table was suitably  decorated for the occasion with  purple and white orchids, birds of  paradise, ferns and candles.  The flowers were grown by Mrs.  Jean Longely.

Most of the ladies wore long  dresses in Hawaiian colours  which added to the festivity.  Mrs. Ida Leslie and Mrs. Jean  Longley co-convened the luncheon and our president, Mrs.  Joan Rigby, welcomed our guests  on their arrival. Other members  assisted in the kitchen, serving  at the buffet table, serving the  tables, looking after the dining  room needs, cutting pies and  taking tickets. Their efforts and  hard work is indeed appreciated.  A draw for the Afghan and  Baby Shawl took place at the  luncheon. First prize, the Afghan  was won by L.A.

Culling the work of ninety photographers from around the world,  the 181 full-colour illustrations  that appear in this text are  stunning. Tigers leap from the  page, lions yawn, wolverines  snarl, wild camels ruminate  across a Mongolian plain, and a  Northern Manatee, scours the  ocean floor like a pudgy, living  vacuum cleaner. For forty-three  dollars, the price of this book,  you'd be purchasing one of the  most handsome products to be  published this year.  Exceptional photography forms  the basis of this book, but the  accompanying text, which is  readable, informative, and at  times almost chatty, takes the  reader on a fascinating stalk  through the mammalian kingdom. All the species afe represented in words and pictures,  from the smallest mammal - the  shrew, to the largest - the great  blue whale. Details of how these  animals hunt, feed, reproduce,  work together in groups, or  simply play, fill these pages in  an easy, unstrained way. Before you know it you've been  educated, but the book is so  dramatically beautiful that it's  a completely painless way to  learn.  Leafing through the thing, I  began reading about the animals  I was most interested in. The  "chapters serve to group the  animals under headings like:  "Life in the trees", or "Grazing  herds", or7''Gnawing Hordes",'  and I began with the one called  "The Hunters: Dogs." In a  few minutes I'd discovered all  sorts of things I'd never heard of  before. I knew that wolves,  weighing up to 150 pounds,  were the largest of the dog  family, and I knew that all dogs  worked as teams to bring down  their prey, and were "typified  by their relentless pursuit", but  I didn't know about several of  the species mentioned. I didn't  know, for example, that grey  foxes ate fruit and climb trees.  Nor had 1 heard of the African  Wild Dogs, that live in old  aardvark holes, and travel sixty  to a pack. My favourite, though,  turned out to be the rare red  dog, the dhole,, who lives in  Asia. The dhole doesn't bark  or howl.   He's "equally at home  along the seashores and high on  earth's greatest mountains,  the Himalayas. It will feed on  sea turtles, ripping off their  shells, and drive mountain sheep  . over precipices." Also, the dhole  is fond of eating wild rhubarb  blossoms.  I turned to "The Hunters:  Cats" next, where I learned that  the tiger, almost extinct, devours  three tons of meat a year, is  the largest of cats, and will kill  anything: elephants, rhinoceroses, crocodiles, fish, turtles,  rodents and even locusts. I  knew that the cheetah, capable  of speeds up to seventy miles  per hour was the fastest of cats,  but I didn't, know that after .  chasing something for six hundred yards, a cheetah will often  give up. I found out that the .  Canadian Lynx eats mostly snow-  shoe rabbits, and when the rabbits decline in their seven-year  cycle, so do the lynx. Also in  this section, the picture of a 250  pound black Mexican Jaguar, t  staring right into the lens of the  camera, was unnerving.  In the chapter "Big Bears and  Their Kin", I discovered that  bears and raccoons are in the  same family, that the smallest  bear is the Syrian Bear, weighing  two hundred pounds, and the  largest is the Kodiak Bear,  weighing 1600 pounds and standing nine feet tall on its hind  legs. The Chinese Panda, first  seen by a Westerner no more  than a hundred years ago, has  the scientific community in a  dither. One group says it's a  bear, one group says it's a raccoon, and a third group maintains that it is both. Worse  taxonomic disputes arise over  the Mountain Beaver, a resident  of B. C. "Sometimes known by  the name given it by the Chinook  Indians, Sewellel, the Mountain  Beaver is not closely related to  a beaver, does not behave like  a beaver, and rarely lives in the -  mountains."  After reading about bears,  I started skipping around from  chapter to chapter, stopping at  anything that looked interesting.  I discovered all manner of strange  animals and curious habits. For  example: the gibbon of Southest  Asia knows how to sing -in  octaves. A Leopard Seal is  capable of scaring off a pack of  Killer Whales, just as a wolverine  can drive a grizzly bear away  from a fresh kill. There are  vampire bats, and they do live  exclusively on blood, but they  drink it with their tongues, not  fangs. The male duckbilled  platypus, who looks innocent  enough, has venomous spurs on  his hind legs. The golden mouse  builds a nest that is often used by  generations of his family, but in  SPECIAL NOTICE  COAST  Resident Identification  Cards  Residents of the Sechelt Peninsula,  West Howe Sound and Powell River  areas are advised that their I.D.

BRITISH COLUMBIA  FERRY CORPORATION  Langdale 886-2242  Saltery Bay 487-9333  Vancouver 669-1211  by Maryanne West  A new musical for Science-  fiction buffs will premiere on  CBC radio this week, Thursday,  9:04 p.m. on FM-stereo and  Sunday 4:05 p.m. on AM. Star  Begotten by Mark Rodden is  his first major musical work  since he began composing folk  songs ten years ago. Producer  Paul Mills describes Rodden,  who works in CBC. stores in  Toronto, as "One of the most  brilliant melody writers I've ever  encountered. His melodies are  simple, strong and memorable."  Star Begotten opens in a  psychiatrist's office, where ��� he  is urging Anne, a schizophrenic  to come back to reality. The rest  of the action takes place in her  imagination. She thinks of herself as Andromeda, a humanoid  from another galaxy who has  extraordinary psychic powers  and who experiments with astral  travel. Andromeda is no ordinary  creature. Her mere presence  distorts time and space to such  an extent thatlntegron, the giant  collective consciousness of the  many parts of Radioland sees  her as a threat to his little sector  a tribe of gorillas, only the male  leader sleeps in the nest. Male  elk, battling over the female of  the species, sometimes get their  horns tangled. When this happens thie combatants die, eventually, and a by-stander inherits  the cows. Elephants, I discovered  are concerned with their appearance: "In particular, elephants  spend a great deal of time washing, powdering, and massaging  their skin, which is unusually  sensitive for a beast that weighs  six tons."  No delight seems unalloyed in  these complicated times of ours,  however. Though this book is,  in essence, a celebration of.  mammals, it also serves the  reader with a warning. Many of  the species of wildlife on these  pages are threatened with extinction. There may only be two  hundred tigers of a certain  species left. There are only nine  hundred ofthe wild, two-humped  Bactrian Camel in existence,  only a few hundred rhinoceroses,  very few sea otters, and even  fewer humpback whales. The  message is clear: - without due  attention to the animals with  whom we share this planet,  there will soon be few of them  left. They will exist only in our  memories, and in the pictures of  large, handsome books such as  this one.  ofthe galaxy. In a futile attempt  to scare her off he creates a  simulated solar nova. Then expends a tremendous amount of  energy in transporting her to  Callisto, a bleak and lifeless moon  of Jupiter. But the Star King,  a Christ-like figure from her own  galaxy pits his powers against  Integron to save her. -    ;  Between Ourselves,  Saturday  7:05 p.m. surveys the co-operative movement in a documentary  called The Fading Dream by John  David Hamilton.

There isn't much to report this  time, as things have been running  so smoothly that nothing exciting  has happened. First of all I am  pleased to report that there is a  slight improvement in Len  Coates. I was talking to Gladys  last night at the Bingo and she  said that they were going to take  X-rays of Len Friday and they  would know then for sure how he  is progressing. We certainly miss  Len with his droll humor and are  patiently waiting to see him back  with us again. Also glad to report  that Mac MacLaren is home again  and recuperating after his spell  in hospital. Was up to see my  old Buddy Dick Oliver who is  confined to bed ��� with some sort  of bug (not a blonde one), he has  a real wracking cough, and it is  upsetting him no end as he cannot  get out and do his daily dozen,  but we wish him all the luck in  the world and a real speedy recovery. Hurry up and get well  Joe as the bus trip to Vancouver is  next Wednesday and we would  like to see you there.  I hear my good Mend Jim  Derby of Branch #69 S.C.A. is  in hospital at Sechelt. Jim .1  am given to understand is trou  bled with bleeding ulcers and is  to be operated on next Wednesday. To Jim and the doctors  concerned we wish you all the  best of luck and hope to see Jim  around soon, as good men like  Jim are hard to find as there  are not many like him around  these days. Best wishes from all  the members of Harmony #38  who hope you are around again  soon. Remembering Jim after  you do get home take things  easy and don't go galivanting  around and to your good wife  Elizabeth, keep an eye on Jim  as he is a going concern and is  hard to hold down, but I know you  can do it Elizabeth, so keep an  iron hand on him and we all wish  you and Jim the very best of  luck.  Had a letter from Dave Hayward the other day and he is  contemplating a trip to Disneyland and Reno, I will put the  notice up on the Bulletin Board.  I would like to congratulate the  new executive of Branch #69  S.C.A. and wish them every  success in their undertaking, as  a job on the executive of any  branch is a full-time job. So my  congratulations to all of you and  I hope to see you all in the near  future.

We will be running our Bingo  until Dec. 15th and then closing  down for a couple of weeks before starting up again on January  5th.

Well, I am glad to say that I  didn't have to get" any spare'  parts for my anatomy, as everything was O.K. apart from my  ulcer and I don't need any  spare parts for that. I just want  to get rid of it so anyone who  needs an ulcer please contact  me and I will be pleased to give  it away, gratis, and no questions  asked.  By the time you read this our  last general" meeting for this  year will be past and gone, it  has been a very eventful year,  quite a lot has been accomplished  and I have no qualms about resigning as I think I have done  my part and am not the least  bit embarrassed in what I have  done. The Hall is rented out for  every Saturday night in December excepting New,. Years Eve  which we are having for our  branch members. For those who  don't know about it Irene Bushfield, our faithful treasurer,  has had a number of tickets  printed for this occasion. I will  give you more details in my. next  bulletin.  Don't forget the bus trip next  Wednesday, December 7th,  meet at the Bus Depot in Gibsons  no later than 10:45 a.m. as we  are catching the 11:15 ferry from  Langdale. I understand there  are about eight or ten seats  left on the bus, so if you haven't  made .up your mind about going  to Vancouver, make it up real  fast and contact Vi Lynds at  886-7428, who will be glad to  hear from you.  Well as I said this report  will be short, we are going to  have a Hall decorating "bee"  on Friday, December 9th, hope to  see you there. _.. .  * I hope these few lines find you \  all hale and hearty and hope to  see you on the bus.

Some David has run amok  with a relentless sling  leaving a broken green silence -  an apocalypse of wood  and a new void in - the universe ��� ���..  where Goliaths once stood.  They will come to remove the bodies  while the echoes linger  in driven chariots, driven  by the hard ancient hunger.  Birds circle bewildered  like men long-travelled  who return to find their homes gone  and the town levelled.

I am  ; How do Vyou answer someone not   daft   enough  to  testify   to  \?ho declares, "No one knows for them here, the  Church  is  the  sure there is a God.   So why go place for that, but I can supply  to  church?      Religion   and   its readily if sensibly asked.  so-called beliefs were the result  of man's invention to keep simple  minded people happy and give  diem a false hope of the hereafter."  \ Now that takes a bit of answer-  ihg, for the advocates who take  tjie part of the Atheist and  ^gnostic can being just as much  logic to support their claims as  those who take the stand that  tihere is a God, and that their  beliefs are valid.  ��� "God is a mystery." A minister, a friend of mine, once said  that to me when we talked  fionestly of such things. And,  we both agreed that you can't  prove there is a God to anyone  from the Bible. You might persuade many people that you have  $uch and such authority from  $cripture to. "prove" certain  persons existed, and certain incidents took place. Others though  will throw all that back in your  teeth with the ironic comment,  ���"So says the Bible."  *. Yes. God is a mystery. "Have  you seen Him? Have you touched  Him?" The cold lads of logic  ask these questions and many  more. You might counter, "Have  you seen the wind?" Is that your  best answer, or are you stuck"  with the old platitudes and  quotes from the Bible?  It is just about this time that  your companion who started this  discussion has lost interest and  says so with such closing words  as'these, "Let's forget all this  serious stuff. As far as I am coh-  erned its just a matter of different  philosophies. You have a religious philosophy, but mine is  non-religious." But, I can't  let the subject peter out like that.  Those of the clergy, past and  present, who are inclined to be  jealous of their authoritative  pdsition within the church will  likely sweep my ideas aside as  just more froth, "no depth",  from the laity. You see, they  are professional theologians, and  like most pros, give little credence to "stuff from an amateur."  Personally, I have been more  str&ngly convinced of the reality  of-a God by specific and fortunate  incidents in my life, and that of  sorlie    others,   than   by    Bible  Now I ask the question, "How  does anyone explain psychic  phenomena, predictions, warnings given to people that save  lives, and other manifestations?"  "Or how explain those rare reincarnations that baffle us all  and yet do happen from time  to time?" Or, some of us have  met certain disciples of New  Thought that ranges from the  newest psychological 'findings',  and Transcedental Meditation,  Scientology, and so on, and the  odd one will try to blow your  mind with his windy theories.  My answer to them all is, "Leave  the mystery to God, for it is a  spiritual happening." In other  words, these things are beyond  human comprehension.  Let us deal now with the slur  on "simple minded people"  and how they are supposed to be  the end result of religious brainwashing. First, are there not as  many, if not more, in the rank  and file of the Grand Army of the  Unbelievers? These are sweeping generalizations that will not  stand up to a closer scrutiny of  more unbiased evidence; ��� Sure'/v  there are simple-minded people  in church attendances, but for  every one so named there is a  large percentage of intelligent  people that you can find from  the highest in every Christian  land, to the unskilled worker.  What is more to the point in  iriy. opinion in this: Since God is  a mystery, and since only in the  belief of One who alone might  offer an hearafter, then why  not reach out for that possibility,  and that hope? A false hope?  So says the Atheist. Is he any  more sure of what he is claiming  than the believer? In any case,  better to have something to  hold on to than nothing at all.  Like we say, "You've got nothing  to lose." Now here is one of my  final clinchers. Those with hope  and belief, however small, are  richer psychologically than those  who toss hope and belief aside  as the pipedreams of misguided  fools.  I, for my part, declare that  the stupid Atheistic blowhard  and the wiseacre Agnostics are  the' misguided fools,  for  there  afternoon near the Seaview  "Their cup of Tea."  Final clincher, true there is a  lot of mystery that baffles both  religious and non-religious, but  don't get carried away with the  presumptious pessimisms of  those who deny the existence of  God. My experience with many  of them is this, when they get  into a damned deep pit of depression (and they get into some  beauts) then they too often  question their own brash statements that bolster up their sagging egos as Erste Klass Atheists. My crying towel has been  used by more 'helpless ones'  than I can count. So do let us  get along and respect the others  opinions just a wee bit better.  by Tom Walton  It was pleasing to see such a  good turnout on November 21st,  with so many sick members back  to normal and the happy holi-  dayers migrating back to their  winter nests in Roberts Creek.  Still a few missing faces, for  one reason or another, including  Mrs. Edith Walton sporting a  lovely "shiner" after a bout on  the operating table for an eye  condition. Get well soon!  All members stood at attention as the Bridge players entered slowing into their "inner  sanctum" to take their places at.  the three royal card tables. At  Table #1 sit the aristocracy, each  toting a six-shooter in their  holster in the event of a faux pas.  Table #2 is for the intermediates  where shaky bids are tolerated  but not pardoned. Table #3 is  reserved for beginners only,  and for such a humble one to  sit at the head table in error  would be tantamount to a sentence in the Tower of London or  an informal introduction to the  headsman's axe, so beware,  take care. After posting a guard  at the door of the royal "chamber7  of horrors"- the commoners retire to the outer courtyard to;  persue their simple activities.  Second down the totem pole  are the Square Dancers who set  up their Maypole, pick their  .partners and go to town with  their country dances to the merry  tunes of caller Jack Whitaker.  Bowling is next in the line of  skill. There are the good, the  fair, and those who prefer the  bare floor boards to the carpet,  presumingly reminding them of  the rumbling of the cannon balls  down the valley of the Catskill  Mountains as heard by Rip Van  Winkle. Next come the ladies  who dominate the Whist table;  then the male chauvinists who  man the Crib. Last on the totem  pole is the Domino table for  the feeble minded jesters. This  exciting game is played by carefully stacking the dominoes on  end and flipping the last one for  the thrill of watching them all  collapse like a deck of cards.

I can't relax when we go  to parties and dances as the  women pay him a great deal of  attention. 1 see the inviting  smiles then I see red and before  I make a fool of myself, .1 want  to go home but of course he  doesn't want to leave. How can  I overcome this wretched jealousy? Torn  Dear Torn:  First realize that most smiles  are only friendly. At parties and  dances you get a change from  each other and it renews your  awareness of each other as individuals. It gives your conversation at home a boost. Develop  an interest in the people around  you, become absorbed in your  partner and when people start  paying attention to you and  you're having a good time you  won't mind what attention he  gets. It's good for our ego,  the more we like ourselves the  less we are jealous. When insecure a person gets possessive.  You can stay at home and be  that way. When socializing, be  social, be agreeable, and do  some smiling yourself. You'll  realize your fears are unfounded,  i relax and have a good time.  Dear Ann:  I am living with a lady that I  like very much.     We agree on  most  things,  and  in   general   I  am happy but here is the catch.  It's her dog, he's a pretty good  sized dog but is always getting  on the sofa and laying his head  on my lap then he creeps more  and more on till he covers  me  with   his   hair   which    I   don't  appreciate and then to push me  to the edge she lets him sleep  with us.    I find it crowded and  uncomfortable.  To me he has an  unpleasant smell.   Why does he  want in bed and why does she  let him?   I don't want to start a  fight   as   I   fear   she   likes   the  dog as well as me.  Three's a Crowd  Dear Crowded:  At least this is a different  kind of triangle. Some people  treat dogs as if they were people  and don't notice that others find  the hair and odor unpleasant.  It's actually unhealthy for the  dog. They lose their hair in the  house too much and it's not  healthy for the people, dogs carry  worm eggs on their coats and  lick themselves, then people,  sometimes in the face. Hence  get him out of your bed. He may  want to watch, but I'd insist on  privacy. Buy or make him a  doggy bed and train him to sleep  in it.  me  GIBSON!

She asks a question and when I  try to answer she seems to lose  interest. Am I doing the wrong  thing in explaining?  Ignored  Dear Ignored:  That's what you think. I would  guess she's listening, but being  cool. It's best to answer briefly.  If she asks where babies come  from tell her, then if she  asks  how the baby got there, tell her  the father planted the seed.  Times goes by then she'll ask  how? Tell her briefly. If they  want to know more they'll ask.  Only answer the questions they  ask. 1 think they only think about  it a short time until it comes up  again.

Mary Cassin  It used to be Jim and Jack  back in the 40's. They were both  plumbing then, in fact they were  the only plumbers around as  far as I know, after the retirement  of their Dad, who was also a  plumber,   only Huxley  did  not  follow their trade. They were  some of the good Samaratans  of the time, I remember them  saying sometimes, there would  be little if any charge for small  jobs, which if there had been a  man around the house, he would  have done. Kindnesses like  this I never forget. As well as  plumbing they also serviced my  oil stove for me, I don't know  what I would have done without  them.  Jim later served Gibsons well  for many years as Post Master.  Jim is the religious one of the  three brothers. I can remember  in the old United Church before  there was a Baptist Church,  when Jim would help conduct  the service. He had a fine singing  voice and sometimes sang solo.  Jim's wife Kay is also a member of the Baptist Church which  they now attend. Jack's wife  Ellen is a member of the United  Church.  Jack of course is still plumbing,  always a friend in need, he comes  in like a ray of sunshine, with  his cheery smile and ready wit.  I will never forget once when  we still owned and leased out  the big house by the Post Office,  his bursting in and saying,  "Come get ready with a mop  and bucket, you and I have a job  to do." "I have evacuated the  downstairs tenants as the place  is flooded." Only Jack could  get away with such audacity.  After all it was pretty good of  him to take on such a job, I  thought. Between us we cleaned  up the mess and what a mess it  was! The toilet had flooded over  everything.  Edna and Huxley Marshall  were new neighbours of ours  in the 40's and our children  used to play together. Their son  Brent is now a minister in the  Pentecostal Church, Edna herself is also a member of the  Pentecostal Church, besides  church work she is also quite  artistically inclined.  When I knew them back in  the 40's Huxley used to drive a  truck, though he was originally  were still living at Killarney,  I helped Edna start a nursery  school which was held in the  basement of the old United  Church. One child I remember,  a blue baby, whose parents were  both teachers, later died after  an unsuccessful operation which  they had collected money for as  there was no Medicare at the  time. I had moved to town by  then and was very sorry to hear  of it, she was such a dear little  g^l.  I am waiting now as I write  this   with   a   dripping   tap   for  a butcher I believe.

Wilson Creek has community worker  The machines stood idle again at the site of the new Pender Harbour Secondary School  last week. By week's end however funding approval had finally arrived from Victoria and  by the time the paper appears construction could again be underway.  Building delay hurts Pender Secondary  The bare steel skeleton of the  new Pender Harbour Secondary  School has been sitting silent  for the last few weeks with just  the odd workman keeping busy  cleaning the site. The delay in  construction caused by a delay in  Minister of Education Pat McGeer's office is now over. The  funding for the school has been  received and work can begin  again.  The delay has caused problems  of morale for the students and  staff of Pender Harbour Secondary School, however, and there  is no mistaking the .concern  of school principal Frank Holmes  as he discusses it in the makeshift staffroom of his makeshift  school, his eyes straying repeatedly out the window to the  silent skeleton. Holmes became  principal of the secondary school  I'in Pender Harbour in September  ?1^75. It had been a divided and  unhappy school before he arrived  but by the end of the first year  he had turned it around and the  morale and the school spirit  were higher than they had been  in years. And then the school  burnt down.  "At first when we came in  to these portables," says Holmes,  "the spirit was still good. We  were crowded and the facilities  were incomplete but it was a  novelty and everyone co-operated. It began to wear a bit thin at  the end of the first year and then  this happens...", and again his  Bananas tie  The Pender Harbour Bananas'  share of first place in the Sunshine Coast Soccer League was  jeopardized on Sunday, November 27th, when the team only  managed to tie the Wakefield  United team 1-1, in a game,  played at Hackett Park in Sechelt.  Bananas coach Bruce Forbes  offered two main reasons for the  draw. He pointed out that the  Wakefield team are playing improved soccer, apparently  because of sustained practice.  He said that some players were  missing from the Bananas but  it seemed to the coach that the  most important reason was an  apparent lack of enthusiasm and  poor conditioning displayed  by his team.  : ��� Forbes said that some improvement would have to  be  forth-  Police  Upon investigating a report of  a broken window in Roberts  Creek, police discovered that  every window in the house had  been smashed, the owners of  the home are on holidays. The  damage is estimated at $600  and two juveniles have been  apprehended.  At the Watson's summer residence in Roberts Creek twelve  windows were smashed by rocks,  value of the windows is approximately $400.  A yellow Motocross bicycle  belonging to Paul Girard was  stolen from Marine Drive on  November 26th.  A 17-foot Folboat kyak was  either stolen or drifted away  from its mooring at Gower Point  sometime during the past month.  It belonged to Mr. L. Pajak of  Gower Point Road.  eyes stray to the half-erected  school.  Holmes explains that the delay  caused by Victoria means that it  is highly unlikely that the new  building will be ready for occu-  pance in September 1978 and his  students will be facing their  third fall without an adequate  school. "Since    construction  stopped," said Holmes, "vandalism has increased greatly.  We have had more vandalism  in the last month than we had in  the previous fourteen."  Gourt News  At Prpvincial Court held in  Sechelt on Wednesday, November 30th, Donna Hamilton was  charged on two counts of drinking  while under the influence of  alcohol. She: was fined S50 on  each count and . given a year's  probation and her licence was  suspended for one year.  Five people were found guilty  of driving with a blood alcohol  count of over .08; Tracy Tame,  Roger Duncan and Jackie Cumming were each fined $500 and  given six months probation.  Deidre Kammerle received a  $100 fine, six months probation  and had her licence suspended  for one year, and Edward Hanson  was fined $350 and given six  months probation.  For driving with no insurance,  Brian Evans was fined $250,  and on a charge of false pretenses. Joseph Clarkson was  given a suspended sentence and  one year's probation.  coming if the Bananas hoped to  win the mid-season Sunshine  Coast Soccer Tournament which  will be held at Hackett Park and  the Reserve Field in Sechelt on  December 10th and 11th. Fans ���  of the Bananas are urged to  attend the tournament because  the close competition in the  league promises an exciting  tournament.  The coach of the Bananas  took the opportunity of thanking  Pender Harbour Diesel for their  financial  support  of the  team.  Outside in the halls it is lunch  time and the students jostle together. The scene is reminiscent  of Elphinstone during the year  before Chatelech was completed  when nine hundred students were  squeezed into facilities designed  for six hundred. In bad conditions over a long period students strike out. They strike  but at each other and at the  environment around them. Frank  Holmes well knows the cause of  the anti-social behaviour but  knowing the cause doesn't make  him feel better.

Coast News talked to  the new community worker,  April Struthers, and asked her  about thejob.  Let's start by finding ont just  what a Community Worker is?  Community Worker is a general label for a job that includes  many activities...generally my  job is to respond to the needs  and wishes of the community;  specifically I will be an organizer,  communicator, educator, referral  agent, and enabler for group  programs, or start action on  people's expressed interests. I  can help people find the organization or group in which they  are interested, or I can start  new programs if none exists  now. I'm in the position of  having one ear to the ground,  and at the same time I am letting  the right hand know what the  left hand is doing. (If that  makes any sense.)  What is your relationship to  the other agencies and organizations in the community?  The Community Worker job  is not allied with any agency,  but operates under the auspices  of the Wilson Creek Community  Association. While not officially  tied to other organizations, I  certainly will be working in very  close contact with them, and will  One of the major problems in  organizing and in attracting  people to local events, is the lack  of public transport - especially  in the case of teenagers. I've  received requests for Teen Nights  in Roberts Creek and Gibsons,  and I will try to do something  maybe once a month in those  areas forteens.  Another group that I hope to  reach are those people home  during the day, be they women  with small children, shift workers  or retired people. People within  walking distance of the Wilson  Creek facilities. With this in  mind we are offering short workshops, walks, and get togethers.  And of course there are groups  with a particular interest in mind;  I hope that they will use the  facilities on their own, though  I am certainly willing to help  organize any activity at the  Community Centre.  Exactly what facilities are  available at Wilson Creek?  Wilson Creek has an extensive  community set-up. Just up  Davis Bay Road, there is the  Community Hall, with a kitchen,  and a community library. This  hall has recently been renovated.  There is a smaller Scout Hall,  which is currently being fixed -  up, insulated, painted inside,  and' lounge chairs and carpeting  to come shortly we hope.   Then  So the Community Worker  works mainly at Wilson Creek.  How far afield will you range?  When interest is expressed in  activities not available in Wilson  Creek, I will travel, and I'll  work through other agencies with  my personal skills. As long as I  am not duplicating an existing  service, and as long as there are  problems affecting the Coast  generally, I'm willing, to take a  stab at it.  To sum up - you are available  to organize new activities, to  supplement existing ones, you  act as a resource for information  on the community generally.  How do people get hold of you if  they are Interested in a certain  program?  As soon as renovations in the  Scout Hall are completed, an  office will be established there,  with a separate phone number  and regular office hours. Until  then people can get me at 885-  2309 in the mornings, Monday  to Friday. Everyone is welcome  to contact me there.  N.D.P.

What are some of the needs  that you have identified so far?  One critical need that most  everyone I've talked to has  mentioned, is activities for teenagers, after school, evening and  weekends.

Basketball  by D. J. Hauka  Elphinstone Senior Boys put up  an impressive show last Monday  but went down m defeat to  David Thompson Secondary  87-95. The score does not truly  reflect the quality of play turned  in by Elphinstone's senior boys.  The Cougars led by as much as  10 points at times, and had to  fight back from as great a deficit  at others. David Thompson is  a Double "A" school, much  larger than Elphinstone and  correspondingly a higher standard of basketball. It is a credit  to our Cougars that they put up  such a fine effort. High scorers  were, Wally Nygren and Jeff  Mulcaster with 20 points each.  Brian Partridge tallied 12 while  Brad Quarry scored 9.  The Cougars took to the road  Wednesday but were unsuccessful in an attempt to defeat  Squamish. The offense scored  an impressive 89 points but the  defence let 93 go by them.

Brian  Partridge owned the outside  shooting with 18 points and on  the inside, Wally Nygren popped  in 14 most of them rebounds.  Elphinstone got back on the  winning track with a 91-16 romp  over Pender Harbour. The fast  break and roll out proved very  effective against Pender and  Larry Linniker owned the boards  as he brought down 26 points.  Jeff Mulcaster had 15 and Clint  Suveges and Eric.

Coast strokers  by Dennis Gray  The frustrations of today's  insolvable problems can drive a  man to drink, kicking the dog  or yelling at his kids. In my  case my kids are bigger and  tougher and I, my dog at six  months weighs  95 pounds and  case you must look for ruts or  obstacles to assist the front  wheel in changing direction.  Often mud has the opposite  effect, too much traction, this  was the case two years ago at  the Nationals in Edmonton. The  mud   was   so   thick   you   could  even with the impaired drivers   step off your bike and it wouldn't  training; I am sure I couldn't  drive while I'm drunk.  The answer for me is motorcycles ,. When trail riding loses  its challenge you can turn to  competition. No matter how good  you get, or think you are, there  is always someone or something  to challenge you. One of the  challenges at this time of year is  mud. Many riders are afraid of  mud and flop from side to side  like the Laugh-In tricycle rider.  Well! Let the old mud man  give you some pointers, they  don't call be Dirty Dennis for  nothing. First, mud As, .only, a  sever problem 'if it causes you to  lose traction, the worst kind is  wet mud over clay and in this  fall over. Long stretches of mud  were churned up and much horsepower was needed to keep forward mobility. The trick was to  hit these mud holes flat out in  a gear that would pull you through, gear changes were to be  avoided or done quickly.  Mission City Raceway is also  famous for its mud, but in this  case it is combined with clay.  It is customary in turns to extend  the inside leg forward for balance  and front wheel traction, in these  conditions your boot can easily  collect 30 or more pounds of mud.  If -you- fatigue^ and. drop. your  foot, instant katzenjammer glue.  I have seen more than one rider  pulled right off his bike this way.  Mud can also hamper vision and'  goggles are usually pulled off  after the first turn. When you1  fall into this grease your hands'  become so slippery you cannot  grip the bars, for this reason I*  carry a cloth in my belt, it only"  takes seconds to wipe the mud;  off.  It is also wise to explore theser  mud holes well during practice,*  for roots or rocks which can cause  an   instant   horizontal   position?  at best.  Aldergrove was the site of a  mud bath last Sunday, in the form  of an Endurocross. This is  where two riders, each with their  own bike, team up to ride in  relays for four hours in a mass of  slipping sloshing bikes and  bodies.  You can be quite sure, after  four hours of this, if you are  aware of any problems they  are confined within your body in  the form of sore muscles.  Masochistic you say? Mud. has  one.other effect on a ;rider, it  makes him smarter. You see 1  didn't compete last Sunday.  1 didn't even go. I sent my son.    '  On the rocks  ^  by Pat Edwards  Local rinks fared well in the  men's open bonspiel last week,  taking almost half the prizes.  Darren Craze and his young rink  took third and the Gilchrist rink  were fourth in the A event. In  the B, Tetzlaff and his crew were  forced into second place by the  strong McLean rink from Vancouver. Elson and Solinsky took  second and fourth respectively  in the C, and Al Pajak was the  winner of the D event, defeating  Garth Combs in the final.  The top prize went to the Gow  rink from Delta, the only rink to  go through the three day affair  without a loss. They defeated  North Van's Yetman rink in the  A event final. The C event was  won by the Keizer rink from  Powell River.  The annual turkey shoot will  be held Saturday, December 17,  so get out and practice putting  that rock on the button.  Did you hear about the novice  curler who arrived at the rink  for her first game, complete  with a pair of skates? Honest!  It really happened.  "^^^^^m^mmm^m^^^^^  $��  Have some  news?

The visitors are in second  place in the Royal City Hockey League, which is an eight-team league which has been  in operation for twelve years. Every player on the team has Junior A experience, notably  defenceman Dennis Oakland, #19. In addition to their experience, New Westminster  is a big team and play a solid brand of hockey. They should challenge the local team to.  the fullest.  Gales have rough weekend  The life of a young hockey  team isn't easy. Just ask the  Peninsula Gales on the heels of  the visit paid them last weekend  by the rough Merritt Blazers  hockey team. Not only did the  Blazers jump out on the front end  of a 5-0 score by the end of the  first period and then go on to  beat the local team by a score  of  9-2,   but   the   rambunctious  Merritt lads laced into the locals  at end of the second period and  in the resultant mass scuffle  local forward Rick Ion fractured  his shoulder and will be out of  action for an indefinite period.  Not satisfied with the mayhem  on the ice, the Blazers indulged  in some boorish anti-social behaviour at the team get together  after the game and provoked so  much ill-feeling that the Sunday  afternoon game was cancelled.  In the actual hockey game the  Gales came out very flat in the  first period and had given up  five goals by the three-quarter  mark of the period. Merritt's  goals were scored by Ballard  with two, and by Dixon, Robinson  and Belinski.  Goals by Roy McBrien and  Rick Ion at 11:49 and  17:35 of  the second period narrowed the  score to 5-2 but Robinson scored  his second goal of the game at  18:59 and the period ended with  the Gales looking at 6-2 Blazer  lead. In the third period the  Blazers again took the play away  from the home team on three unanswered goals from Belinski,  Twan, and Belinski again to post  their final 9-2 victory.  The.Gales are far from disheartened by their rough weekend this week and are looking  forward to their upcoming weekend games with a New Westminster team which is reputed to  be a quality hockey team.

Faith and Young People  "The generation gap which  caused such a furore a few years  ago may still exist, but the problems that face young people  are basically the same that face  everyone and we'd better get  together to solve them or human  survival is in serious danger."  Not the most profound statement, one mightsay. butconsider,-  ing where it comes from and how  .it was arrived at, we believe it  has very considerable meaning  for us all. In preparation for  the Fourth World Synod of  Bishops which is just under way  in the Vatican, the head of the  Canadian delegation. Most Rev.  Emmett Carter of London, Ontario, conducted his own survey.  One of the themes of the synod  is the problem of youth and how  to communicate the faith to them.  So Carter sent out a personal  appeal to 25,000 young people  in his Southwestern Ontario  archdiocese to tell him where  they were at. And they told him.  More than 2,000 wrote him personal letters and the conclusions  were enormous. The gap is amost  passe because youth are as concerned about "evil, lust, pornography, drugs, rampant materialism" as their parents.  They are confused and opposed  to much of the church's official  teachings about sex. It is too condemnatory and rigid. They find  the official teachings boring  and irrelevant. They long to see  a world in which justice, racial  harmony and peace hold sway.  There is a clear alienation from  the structured church. At the  same time there is a deep spiritual awareness. One young  person said, "I never pray  (i.e. in church) but I talk to God  alot."  - It'seems to us that1 insteadiof  worrying about youth Jiving?* by  A Vancouver reader, Ms. Mary  McKinnon, asks:  Could The B.C. Forest Industries  Achieve Energy Self Sufficiency  By Using Forest Wastes?  It is difficult at this stage to  make a definite prediction.  Achieving complete self-sufficiency will involve new technologies, great expense, economic  adjustments and the resolution of  many problems. However the  industries have started moving  toward the goal you suggest and  it is not impossible one day the  answer to your question could be  "yes".  Of course the idea of using  wood wastes for energy is not  new. For many years some of  our forest industries (mostly  the pulp and paper mills) have  been using their own surplus  bark, shavings and sawdust  (called "hog fuel") to produce a.  part of the steam required  for their boilers. But this practise  has not been universal for a  variety of reasons.  For instance, considering the  forest industry as a whole, not  all our regions produce (or can  use) the same amount of wood  waste and "hog fuel" is expensive to transport. In some areas  we have a large surplus. In  others we have fluctuating energy  requirements and not enough  wood waste to warrant relying  on it as an energy source. Moreover, we have not had the technology to permit using this fuel  for all industry purposes. Most  significant perhaps is the fact  that up to now it has been cheaper  for the forest industry to use oil  or gas. It now uses approximately 23% of all natural gas  consumerd in our province and  65-70% ofthe energy used by the  industrial sector.  Several conferences focusing  on conversation of fossil fuels  have been held recently under  the sponsorship of the Council  of Forest Industries of B.C. As  one outcome of these meetings,  we now have a Wood Waste  Energy Coordinating Committee  designed to coordinate and guide  a sexual morality that is not ours,  we should support them, stop  condemning and listen. The  problems of society that make  adults as dependent on chemicals,  for relief from tension as our-  society is, are the same problems,  that young people face.'���������. ,; .. .�����.;  ,'As Carter said, "We're a||,.in>  th'e-.same'-'bdat aridi���wiiCsirik'*<or-  survive together." ,... ,���;,_,.-  tide tables  Reference:  Point Atkinson  Tue.

This is chaired  by Norman Gish of .the B.C.  Energy Commission and includes  representatives from the Council  of Forest Industries, the B.C.  Development Corporation,  Federal Energy Mines and Resources, Western Forest Products  Laboratory and others.  The committee has an important and complex assignment  before it, but we do have new  technologies which hold promise.  For instance a pilot wood waste  gasifier at B.C. Research has  proved itself to the point where a  commercial model is considered  feasible. One U.S. company  has developed hog fuel pellets  that can be burned directly or  used to create wood gas. Wood  waste gasifiers may also offer  a possible source of electricity  and heat. Producing methyl  alcohol from wood wastes as  an automotive fuel supplement is  yet another possibility that is  low in priority at present, but  also to be considered.  We have very roughly sketched  only a few of the conservation  measures that will be examined  in the year to come.

Gordon Kelk  The following is the last in a  series of four reprinted from  Harbour &Shipping.  In the spring of 1925, Mr.  Smith joined the Bamfield Lifeboat Station under Captain  Brady. This very important  lifesaving station, used a 100 watt  ICW transmitter, and communicated directly with Pachena  Point. There was also a telephone line, but during stormy  weather, it would usually be out  of service.  Nelson Smith's next post was  Pachena Point, where he served  as operator for six months using  directional finding equipment  for the first time. At the outset,  a good bearing was one with  almost a two degree swing on  the minimum...later, improved  sets brought this down to one  We   regret   to  advise that we will  be closed Tuesday  December 13th.  quarter of a degree.  Japanese bride ships were  coming to the west coast during  1925-26, and operators at Estevan  could get hundreds of arrival  messages from each vessel.1  Canneries were being built at  Nootka, Ceepeecee, and Mcbride  Bay. The barge Louisiana was  also a floating cannery. These  operations were later fitted with  radio installations, and their  traffic kept the coastal stations  busy during the fishing season.  Living   conditions   were   fair,  and   groceries   arrived   on   the  Princess Maquinna three times a  month if you were lucky.    They  were   loaded   at   Hesquiat   via  indian canoe, and brought from  Hesquiat over, a cordory road 5  miles to Estevan.   At this time,  we didn't have a truck, just a  crawler  tractor  and   a   wooden  sled.   During the winter season,  the  hunting was  usually  good.  with  lots  of ducks   and   geese.  Fishing off the  rocks  north  o!  Estevan was also good,  usually  getting plenty of small cod. and  an occasional Ling-cod.     Sometimes,  one  of the  gang   might  shoot a wild cow in the bush.  then   we  would   have   a   feast.  These cattle  were decendants of  some brought over by the Spaniards in their early explorations.  Ted's Blasting & Contracting Ltd.

One  operator    was    Fred    Cornish,  another  was   Bud   Wolfe,   both  wonderful   operators   and   quite-  individual. Other operators came-  and went during my time there."  With  that era,   assistance  to  ships in distress were numerous,  and operators spent many  long  hours guiding rescue vessels to  the scene.   At times it was just  a matter of keeping in touch with  a ship caught in storm and wind,  and wanting to know its position  from time to time.     Such  was  the   case   with   the   tug   Cap*.  Scott.   The signal Nelson picked  up that day v. .is so weak, it was  almost a whisper.   The tug was  caught   in   a   terrific   storm   off  northern Vancouver Islam;,  had  lost it's tow, and was swept out  to sea.   The aerial was knocked  out, and the sending set   .ama-  ged. The operator, using a  :teat  deal of ingenuity, devised .. ^end-  ing set made  up  from  a   Ford  coil he found in the engine i     in.

Estevan Point made headlines  during World War II by being  the first light and radio station  to be shelled on the west coast  by an enemy submarine: the date,  June 20th, 1942. George Michol7  son's article in the magazine  section of the Province, July  28th, 1956 gave a very good  account of what happened that  evening. E. T. Radford O.I.C.  at the wireless station, witnessed  the attack.  "The sub surfaced about two  miles offshore and  was  plainly  visible   at   approximately    9:40  p.m. It then comn:  need shelling  for 40 minutes,  tiie first shells  landing about 100 yards in front  of the  lighthouse.     Mr.   Lally,  the     lightkeeper,     immediately  put out the light.   Approximately  25 shells were fired, and except  for a few buildings hit by shell  fragments,     no    damage     was  caused either to the lighthouse  or radio station.   An unexploded  shell found on the beach in front  of the light was of 5.9 caliber.  and weighed 80 pounds. Several  landed in the vicinity of Hesquiat  Indian Village five miles directly  behind the lighthouse.''  It might be noted at this time,  that there has been a great increase in tanker loss, due to  groundings, break-ups, and  collision, but these losses can  still be attributed to the age old  effect of human error, and  mechanical failure. Generally  speaking, sea lanes are so safe  now, that only in rare circumstances are there marine disasters of any consequence.  Still, as man strives for perfection, another great challenge  faces him...as  in  the  twenties,  he was so concerned in his fight  to save man from the perils of  the sea...now he endeavours to  save the oceans from the pollution  of man.     Automated  ships,  responding   to  automated   signals  and lights, supertankers roamiv-  sea lanes the world over, will require   the   greatest   safety   precautions   that  navigational   aids  can offer, for the danger of oil  spills is a great threat to the very  existence of mankind.  ��i.V ^"^  Full Beam Colour/  :-m-:-  :<?k  k;-  SAVE $140.00  On the TS501 Hitachi Luminar 1 26" Color T.V.

Hfore letters to the editor  Press rebuked  Editor:  Only one of the three local  newspapers, turned up at the  meeting with B.C. Hydro officials and the 7 Gibsons Wildlife  Club, the Sechelt Rod and Gun  Club and the Fisherman's Union  held recently in Gibsons. This  seems to us to be a strange way  of encouraging organizations to  let the public know about their  activities through the medium  of the press but maybe ours is  not to reason why. You can bet  however that if this had been a  public meeting with the inevitable  excited people jumping up and  down and yelling at each other,  the meeting would have hit the  front pages. As it was, because  it was an orderly and well con-,  ducted meeting nobody thought  it was worth mentioning.  It is generally understood that a  better understanding of problems  involving the public and government run organizations can be  reached by talking face to face  with the people involved in  making decisions, rather than by  letters and indirect methods  of communication. This is precisely what this meeting was  all about. Nobody really expected  B.C. Hydro to come out and say,  "We won't spray defoliants any  more," and neither did they expect any startling revelations to  ' be made by either B.C. Hydro  or for that matter the representa-  "t tives from the Clubs.  I think I can say here that the  meeting did achieve its objectives  and that at least three suggestions put forward by the Clubs  were accepted by B.C.Hydro.  First, that the Clubs volunteer  their services to look after the fish  bearing creeks which cross the  Right of Way. This was an idea  which originated with the Clubs  and not, as one paper suggests,  . by B.C.Hydro.  The second idea was that the  Clubs take their own samples  of water after the spray programme and submit them for analysis by an independent lab.  This, we think, is an excellent  idea and one which will be followed up.  The third idea as that a local  contractor who states that he can  clean up the Right of Way to  standards required by B.C.  Hydro for considerably less than  anything that B.C.Hydro officials  had been quoted previously,  would be looked into and possibly  acted upon. If this idea is accepted, it could mean that the  spray programme, which is used  mainly for economic reasons,  would not be necessary.  We feel that the public are  well able to make up their minds  on matters like these, rather  than have the news media make  them up for them either by not  attending a meeting at all or by  attending and then not reporting  it, the implication being, of  course, that there was nothing  worth reporting.  I think we should take the  opportunity here to thank our  guests from B.C.Hydro. They  were, Mr. W.A.Best, Asst.  General Manager, Electrical  Operations; Mr. D.J.McLennan,  Divisional Manager, Metro  Region; Mr. H.J.Lazarski,  Production Manager, Metro  Region; Mr. P.W.Bosby, Vegetation Management Supervisor,  and of course Mr. R.J.Hensch,  District Manager, Sechelt.  Thanks are also extended to  Mr. R.M.Janis of the Sechelt  Rod and Gun Club who did an  excellent job of chairing the  meeting and to those members  of the Gibsons Wildlife Club,  the Sechelt Rod and Gun Club  and representatives ofthe Fisher-  mens Union who took an active  part in the meeting, and we must  not Of course forget Mr. Frank  West, who represented Mr. Don  Lockstead, MLA, who was unable to attend. It was also very  good to see Mrs. McKown, a  teacher from Elphinstone High  School, and two of her students.  We appreciate thier interest  in our endeavours.  We are sure that when the time  comes to talk about the new high  voltage transmission line from  Chaekamus to Vancouver Island,  the people from B.C.Hudro will  be prepared to listen to the people  and to come to some reasonable  compromise acceptable to all  ���when it comes to routing it  through the Pender Harbour  area. The subject was touched  upon at our meeting but it  was felt that the time was not  ripe for detailed discussions at  the time.  John Hind-Smith  Poor trees  Editor:  If these trees could talk, they'd  be screaming...If these trees  could walk, we'd be living in a  desert.  It must be possible in this  highly sophisticated industrious  technological country for the B.C.  Hydro and/or Department of  Highways to trim trees and cut  back foliage and vegetation in  a less savage, brutal and shocking  manner as seen on Highway 101  west of Gibsons. There must be  a neater and more effective way  to do the job and I'm not thinking  of chemicals. I do not enjoy  driving this highway with this  reminder of some human's war  to conquer nature. The attitude  displayed reminds me of the  military who have designed  systems to destroy this planet  100 times over, just to be sure.  I have difficulty accepting that  people think like that and difficulty coping with the visual  and physical desolation in the  trees and greenery along Highway 101.

Hydro Avoids Local Discussion  Sakinaw Lake ratepayer Bruce  Barclay is organizing local  opposition to the proposed B.C.  Hydro powerline crossing of  Sakinaw Lake. Interested parties  can contact him at 461-1283.  The powerline will cross the  Caren Range between Mt. Hal-  lowell and the old mine, meet  the existing line north of the  Pender Harbour Secondary  School and continue west across  Sakinaw, Agamemnon Channel  and Nelson Island to Cape Cockburn. The right-of-way will be  about 400 feet wide with parallel  hundred-foot towers carrying six  powerlines. A 35-acre substation  will be built north of the high  school.  An alternate route along the  existing Hydro right-of-way to  Earls Cove was considered but  rejected by a Route Selection  Study prepared for Hydro by  Beak Consultants. The new line  will be four times as large as  the existing Earls Cove line.  Aside from the visual impact  which will have considerable  effect on the tourist areas of  Sakinaw and Nelson Island,  Ratepayer concern centres on the  spraying of chemical defoliants  for brush control. All drinking  water on the peninsula is vulnerable to contamination by Hydro  spraying.  The chemicals used are the  same as those used in Vietnam  and which were responsible for  widespread human birth defects.'  Despite continuous claims to  the contrary by B.C. Hydro,  there is definite scientific evidence that the chemicals have  caused and do cause fearful  birth defects.  Hydro submitted the Route  Study to the Regional Board  November 2nd in the midst of  the election campaign. The  Regional Board insisted on  November 24 that a public meeting be held in Area 'A' as soon  as possible to enable Hydro  representatives to explain the  project to the local people.  Hydro is not enthusiastic about  such a meeting since they propose to hold it in Sechelt. The  Route Study also anticipates  opposition by local residents:  "reactions...have indicated the  local population's willingness to  ������������������**���**���*���***�����  thank mm     __   .

This is especially true of issues  relating to the environment."  (p. 95)  The Ratepayers discussed a  meeting with Hydro officials at  the November 6 general membership meeting and resolved to  hold such a public meeting within  the next several weeks. Hydro  has arbitrarily announced that  the deadline for public input is  the end of December.  "B.C. Hydro seems to be using  every tactic and ploy to avoid  a responsible discussion of the  public concerns of residents in  this area," says Joe Harrison,  newly elected Director to the  Regional Board. "How can they  expect anything but opposition  if they aren't even willing to  explain their position?"  An organized group from  Lasqueti Island as well as local  residents are exploring the  possibility of submissions to the  B. C: Energy Commission.  Legal action is also being considered. In addition, a general  petition against the spraying of  defoliants and forestry insecticides encompassing the whole  Sunshine Coast is being considered by local residents.  A March 3rd Vancouver Sun  article points out Hydro cannot  entirely ignore public opinion  because if people feel they have  no recourse they take matters into  their own hands. SPEC, Greenpeace and the Sierra Club have  a great deal of experience in  ecological    struggles. Their  function is to help communities  resist.  If you wish to present a brief  to the Energy Commission,  write to Norman Gish, Chairman  BCEC, 1177 West Hastings.  Vancouver. Hydro is a corporation and as such can be sued or  injoined by individuals. There  are lawyers who will lend their  aid to this end, available through  environmental groups.  Harrison  to enlarge  committee  Director-elect for ���Area 'A'  Joe Harrison will make good an  election promise of more community involvement by increasing  the size of the Pender Harbour  Settlement Plan Committee to  ten members, he announced at  last Wednesday's plan meeting  in Madeira Park. Harrison feels  the present base does not fully  represent the community and  wants more public input by the  use of sub-committees to investigate and report on specific areas.

The results of the Ratepayei  questionnaire clearly illustrate  that some areas of the curreni  draft of the plan will have to be  modified to meet the wishes oi  the community. The plan has  progressed to the point, where  public input is vital.

Finished my business, I wormed  the above tale of regal defecation  from the normally taciturn storekeeper. But what really intrigued me was the strict programming of these usually variegated functions. "Did she really  do it right on schedule?" I asked.  "Sure did," he replied, "the  queen's just as regular as clockwork."  This incident, as I say, took  place several years after the  day I didn't meet the queen.  Had I known then what I know  now, that the British Empire is  precise, unvaried and free of  constipation even to the very  movements of it's monarch, it  might have made some difference.  I might have seen the queen  . as I rounded a corner I noticed  ���\ a large crowd ahead of me. They  weren't   football   supporters;   I  ') knew that immediately because  they were so well behaved, and  : weren't tearing bits off the nearby buildings, so I approached a  young, scarf-clad woman at the  periphery    of    the    gathering.  ' "Why are all these people here?''  I asked her. "Ooh," she said,  "the queen's coming.   Going to  : dedicate the new library."  That's nice, I thought, and  looked around at all the ladies  in their overcoats and scarves,  and the little kids with tiny  Union Jacks in their hands,  and the few men scattered here  arid  there.      They   all   looked  ��� bored but hopeful, in much the  same way that dairy cattle look  after all.    I might have gazed   just prior to  milking  time.

The day I nearly saw the Queen  By John Faustmann  Now that I think of it, there  have probably been several times  that I might have met, or at  least seen, the queen. I!m referring of course to Her Majesty  Queen Elizabeth the 2nd, whose  portrait graces the walls of nearly  every public institution in this  country, and whose influence  spreads throughout the world,  or at least to those portions  of the globe that used to be  coloured pink for the British  Empire. With her recent visit  to this country, 1 feel it incumbent  upon me to say a few words about  my own personal experience with  the queen.  I am not without credentials  in this area. Aside from seeing  Her Majesty's face plastered  all over everything from tea  cannisters to Japanese cigarette  lighters, I've actually approached  the very seat of her particular  government. This particular  event took place years after the  day I didn't meet the queen,  but I feel I should mention it  just to let you know that I'm not  without experience when it comes  to royalty.  The event took place in Minstrel Island, in the small general  store there. The owner, who was  a surly crewcut type that had  managed to alienate all the locals  in the. place, had recently moved,  tol'J JfiftlJ^^fi��, nodfiem  Manitoba.7* He   brougfat^with;  him a great many possessions,  among them the only one that  could possibly serve as his redeeming social value, and the  only one, also, that gave him  any real pleasure. It was a toilet  seat. Not just any toilet seat,  but a royal toilet seat.  It seems that several years  earlier, when the storekeeper  was still living in Manitoba,  the queen had come to visit the  village in which he was living.  Because of it's rather primitive  location, it turned out that the  storekeeper was the only one in  town who had a flush toilet.  So, several weeks in advance of  Her Majesty's visit, the storekeeper got a letter from one of  the queen's assistants, asking  him if it would be all right for  the queen to use his bathroom.  He replied in the affirmative,  and another week went by before  he got another letter.   This one  contained the detailed itinerary  of Her Majesty's visit. Circled  in red pencil were the times  when the queen would be over  to powder her nose. It seemed  that she was due to use the  facilities twice - once in the  afternoon, once in the morning,  and the itinerary had something  like: "9:10 - 9:17, use of bathroom", and then, further down  the page, "4:48 - 5:05" and the  same felicitous phrase as above.  I seldom talked much to the  storekeeper, but one day, when  I was in his establishment muttering about his incredibly high  prices and trying to decide between a bag of Oreos or some  chocolate Digestive Biscuits,  nature called. It was only natural,  too, that I would see the sign  that the storekeeper had tacked  onto his biffy, which read:  "This toilet was used by Her  Majesty   Queen   Elizabeth    II"  fondly at her tiny, benign and  beribboned little presence, and  gone away a better man. I might  have been quietly blessed by her  ldditive-laden white bread,  wave, or inwardly strengthened  by her demure bland smile,  and had my upper lip stiffened  henceforth. But it's too late now  for regrets. I had my chance,  but I didn't meet her. As you  may imagine, this  has been  a  left them to their monarchist  speculations and went on my way.  The gentleman I had to see  that afternoon lived quite close  by the library. It took me very  little time to conclude our business, and on my way back to the  tube I had to pass through the  same crowd again. By this time  some of them had been waiting  for hours to catch a glimpse of  the queen.    It was still raining  The crowd, their hours of anticipation finally rewarded, surged  forward for a better look, leaving  me on the empty pavement like  the only cynical pebble on a  patiotic beach. By this time I  could no longer see the royal  car, now lost in the ward of  well-wishers. Since it had been  raining since daybreak anyway,  the day decided to get on with it  in earnest, and began dumping  buckets all over the landscape.  I exited into the underground  and made my retreat across  London. It had seemed like such  an ordinary day. It would only  be years later that I would  realize: that was the day I didn't  meet the queen.  I have been largely inconsolable ever since, but of course  there have been some short  moments of regal redemption in  my   otherwise   wretched   com-  Coast News, December 6,1977. 17.  moner's existence.

I was living in  London, and it was one of those  typical English days when it  couldn't decide whether to rain  or just be cloudy, and so it was  raining tentatively, all day long;  trying to make up it's mind.   I'd  ting tentatively wet through to  the skin, and across the street,  r.even the ceremonial ribbon in  ��� front of the library was beginning  to go limp. I was edging through  the crowd, on my way back across  the river, my head full of speculation about group madness,  monarchy, the remnants of  feudalism in the industrial age  and other such dementia, when  a cheery little soul who looked  "here  had to go across  the river on  business, taking the tube from alike a tea cozy squealed  Hampstead to some place in the ''she comes!"  east   end   -   Tooting   Beck,   or 7    Around the corner swept a grey  Thwoknot,   or  Lumper's  Green j!Rolls-Royce, its occupants hidden  or one of those places.
