 LEGISLATIVE LIBRARY,  Parliament Buildings,  VICTORIA, B.C. V8V 1X4  - Former alderman ��� and  regional board director Charles  Lee has withdrawn from the  race for the vacant position of  jmaior of Sechelt. ,; 7 M<  j   Tne by-election:was occa-i  stoned by the resignation of incumbent Mayor Bud Koch in  January. Koch, who resigned  citing business reasons, has  ���-jTiow declared his intention to  seek re-election.  ri\  Lee's withdrawal leaves a  ^two-way fight between ex-  ;mayor Koch and Alderman  ���Joyce Kolibas who resigned her  Aldermanic seat to run for  -jmayor.  V-- In a written statement to the  ,Coast News Lee said, in part:  -''When, after long and persistent canvassing by ex-mayor  JKoch and his signing nomination papers for my candidacy  for the mayoral seat on Sechelt  Council, I noted that 1 would  withdraw my papers if a more  suitable person came along.  "My opinions are it has  become increasingly clear* that  efforts have been made to use  me as a stalking horse to  politically destroy a fine person, Mrs. Joyce Kolibas. My  views are re-in forced by Koch  placing his own name on the  election ballot. At no time did  he advise mej his nominee, of  his own nomination."  Lee claims that Koch's  resignation was caused by friction on the village council and  at the regional board.  "If he were re-elected,"  writes Lee, "what will have  changed?"  Referring to an allegation  made in a local publication that  a group of Sechelt citizens  would underwrite the cost of  the by-election so that the tax-.  payer would be spared the expense of Koch's resigning then  re-running, Lee asks:  "Which well-heeled citizens  are putting up the money to buy  this election and why?"  Lee's written notice of  withdrawal concludes: " As I  no longer wish to have Koch's  name on my nomination papers  I will, as declared, withdraw in  favour of...a more suitable  candidate for the office of  mayor of Sechelt for the next  ten months, i.e. Mrs. Joyce  Kolibas and I urge the citizens  to vote her into office."  Graham Craig is the only  declared candidate for the vacant aldermanic seat on Sechelt  council.

V'Yeahi; it's terrible what they  get up to when a fellow turns his  back."  ;Tt was in Davis Bay last Monday the foregoing conversation  took place. Across the highway  from the Davis Bay wharf \\  giant crane was preparing to lift  the roof off the office of the  Bella Beach Motel. .. XX  One of the onlookers at'the  scene was Vic Franske of Davis  Bay, long-time owner of the  Bella Beach Motel. Vic and his  wife Katharine brought up  their family in the old house  between the years 1964 and  1979.  ���:. Prior to purchasing the Bella  Beach Motel; the Franskes had  operated Vic's Trading Post in  Davis Bay from the; time of  their arrival in 1950.  "When I first arrived here,"  says Vic, "there was nothing  here but Englishmen and  Scotsmen. They used to give me  a rough time because of my  name but I've outlasted them  all."  Vic's Trading Post was purchased from Ronald Whitaker  who had the original quarter-  section of land. During the  trading post, years the  Franske's operated the first  restaurant in the Davis Bay  area, Vic's Coffee Shop, ran  the gas pumps, looked after the  post office and ran their store.  They purchased the Bella  Beach Motel in 1964 rebuilding  the main house extensively at  that time.  Retiring in 1979, the Franskes now live in a comfortable  home on Whitaker Street  overlooking Davis Bay wharf  where handyman Vic busies  himself making glass lampshades.  The old ho lis e ? A fie r  dismantling, it is destined to be  rebuilt on a piece bf land on  Redrooffs Road, property of  Michael and Mary Baecke.  Eponoroic Commissioner  Oddvin Vedo organized the  conference to bring together  the operators; and the, various  government organizations they  are involved with for the purpose of promoting aquaculture  on the Sunshine Coast.  As representative of Marine  Resources Branch of the  Ministry of the Environment,  Don Tillapaugh, told those in  attendance just how fast the industry is growing and directed  interested persons to a guide  recently published: by the  ministry to help in getting  through the maze of permit and  licence regulations required to  start in the aquaculture  business. The guide book "A  Permit and Licence Guide for  the Prospective Aquacuitur-  ist" is available through the  Ministry of the Environment.  Herb Adrian from the Coast  Guard told the conference  about the permission needed  from the Coast Guard to place  long^Iines, fish traps, crab  traps,<. anchor buoys, floats,  : wharves and fish pens: and ^.  i��b|ie^��!^fo^  . the> Niaviga^e'Waters Protection Act.  Representatives of the  Ministry of Land, Parks arid  Housing, the Mines Department, the Department of the  Environment, the Worker's  Compensation Board and the  BC Forest Service, outlined the  requirements of their departments dealing with aquaculture  operations.  Also, Manley Fisher, a Coast  log salvager, commented on the  potential conflict between his  industry and that of the  aquaculturists, due to the loss  of sheltered tie-up sites to  aquaculture operations.  Nelson Island fish farmer  Brad Hope led a discussion oh  the future of salmon farming  on the Coast, citing the difficulty in obtaining funding for  fish-farm operations as the major factor slowing growth in the  industry. He pointed; out that  because of the initial financial  burden involved; Norwegian!  fish farmers are now able to sell  their products here corn-;  petitively against local fish;  i' ��� X'  xys^s>^^^y^M^^^^^i' 2  Hope urged cooperation  from government agencies arid'  financial institutions in order  to put the industry on a more  stable footing.  Also discussed briefly at the  meeting was the potential for  seaweed production in the area.  It was the general consensus  of the forum that with proper  support and management \ the  Sunshine Coast will soon be  known for the wide variety of  seafood produced here and that  the potential exists for export  to world markets if sufficient  production volume can be  achieved in order to obtain less  expensive shipping rates.  Late Ferry blues  >;"The wash from the ferry is  causing a bigger problem on the  islands' than we thought it  wOuld. We're going to have to  slowdown." '���'������)���'.,-������  vThe speaker was B.C. Ferries  chairman Stu iHodgson at a  meeting in Gibsons last week.  ";?'It's the front end of the ship  (the Queen of Coqiiitlam) that  isvdoing it," said Hodgson.  >Hodgson acknowledged that  the ferjy corporation had  already paid for repairs to a  rwimber of docks between  Horseshoe Bay and Langdale  which had been damaged by the  wash of the new, larger ferry.  ."We've thought about  changing ships but no decision  hks been made yet."  I Hodgson said there would be  discussions held in April or"  May to discuss scheduling  changes which may be  necessitated' by the slowing  down of the Queen: of Coqiiitlam.  Langdale ramp delayed  Last week in Gibsons B.C. Ferry chairman Stu Hodgson  ruled out improved loading facilities at Langdale until the  1984-85 fiscal year'at the earliest'.  Hodgson said that the capital expenditure programme for  the ferry corporation next year had been cut to the bone.  Water in  The controversial subject of water supply to Area E  (Gower Point and Pratt Road areas) will be the featured  topic at the next meeting of the Elphinstone Electors  Association.    -  Guests at the meeting will be Dayton and Knight engineer  Hagris Berzins and regional Superintendent of Works Gordon Dixon.  The meeting is.scheduled for 8 p.m. in the gymnasium at  Cedar Grove elementary school.  Indians caution  The Sechelt Indian Band cautions that the successful  passage of the legislation necessary for them to achieve independence, is by no means 'a foregone conclusion' as  previously reported in the Coast News.  "The passage of the legislation will in reality be a long and  difficult struggle. Of course we are optimistic about the outcome," a letter from the Indian Band informed this  newspaper.': ;;  The Sechelt Indian Band has been invited back to Ottawa  in April for additional exploratory talks abbiit the legislation. .'.   '���'..  "We are going to honour our  commitment for a late night  ferry sailing in the summer  schedule," said B.C. Ferries  chairman Stu Hodgson in Gibsons last week. Hodgson was  on the Sunshine Coast at there-  quest bf the regional transportation committee.  Apart from.the reassurance  about the late night summer  sailing, Hodgson had little to  say of a cheerful nature.  "We just don't know what's  going to happen to our  budget," said Hodgson.  ' 'We've tried everything we can  to find out from (Finance  Minister) Mr. Curtis. So far no  luck. We are trying for an additional $5 million on our subsidy  but we are not hopeful."  Hodgson pointed out that in  1981 the ferry corporation lost  $6 million on the Horseshoe  Bay-Langdale run; in 1982 it  lost $8 million on the run. 1983  losses for the run are projected  at $6 Vi million despite the cutback in service.  "If traffic picked up we  would be pleased to put your  late sailing back on," said,  Hodgson, but he pointed out at;t  the present time the 9:25 p.m.':  sailing from Horseshoe Bay is  averaging only 52 cars.

When Koch resigned office in January he said that he  was resigning due to pressure of business; later he implied that he resigned to protest what he believed was  financial mismanagement at the regional board; still  later it was suggested that his resignation was due to  lack of co-operation from Sechelt council.  Whatever his real reason for resigning, it has caused  an unnecessary election and an unnecessary expense  either to the taxpayer or to an unnamed group who for  some reason, it is claimed, stand ready to assume electoral costs.  If Koch's business pressures are relieved we are well  pleased for him; if friction with the*council was the real  reason it should be noted he will be required to work  with essentially the same council���a council that has  been working very amicably without him; if Koch,.as he  seems now to be saying, resigned to draw attention to  mismanagement at the regional board it seems a very  strange course of action. ���  Koch sought and was given a mandate to tend to the  affairs of the village of Sechelt. His blustering re-entry  with avowed intent of confronting the regional government should please no one who is reflective.  Certainly there are concerns of the village which must  be vigorously addressed by the Sechelt council, as they  have been addressed by council in Koch's absence and ���  will be whether he is re-elected or not. A return to  acrimony and regional board bashing can scarcely be  welcome, however. Surely it is time for reasonable  discussion. We have had enough of the other.  Is honour dead?  It is not a good time for government morality in  Canada. Federally, we have the Liberals claiming that  the guidelines governing the conduct of former cabinet  ministers can be ignored at will. Provincially, we have  our Premier telling the bare-faced lie that the expensive  television advertising campaign paid for by the taxpayers is non-political.  Not to be outdone we have the Vaughan-McRae  report to the regional board concerning documentation  on downzoning.  This report is somewhat of a mystery in its inception  and a definite question mark in its execution.  Apparently director Ian Vaughan was charged with  responsibility and in his somewhat incomplete researches was aided by director Jon McRae who has a major  interest in a large development at the centre of the  downzoning controversy.  Vaughan, with the aid of McRae, reported that there  was inadequate documentation of public hearings to  justify downzoning. Whether that is so or not, and it at  least seems debatable, what is McRae doing involved in  the matter?  How can this be seen as other than an improper: conflict of interest?

In one memorable sc^he  from the motion picture ohf he  life of Mahatma Gandhi two  lines of refugees are depicted.  They are the lines of refugees  ,- with which we are sadly  familiar in this century,  whether they trudge along with  their belongings and children  on their backs in white, brown,  or yellow skin's.jThese. are the  timeless and terrible images;Of  people whose lives have been  uprooted by War.

When the discovery that his  baby has died prompts one  father to fury and a rock throwing, fist-swinging brawl breaks  out between these victims of  division and distrust the tragic  folly is further underlined.  Historically the scene takes  place near the end of Gandhi's  life and, as was mentioned last  week, recent slaughtering of  refugee Moslems by Hindus in  Assam is clear indication that  however uplifting was Gandhi's  vision and achievements his  policy of non-violent, non-cooperation is not in ascendancy  even in India, his home turf, let  alone in the rest of the world,  of the,world.  "The demons that haunt  mankind," Gandhi is depicted  "-'���**-^-  as saying just before he is  assassinated, "dwell in his  heart and it is on 'that battleground that they should be  fought."  The demons of division and  distrust led to the division of India into Hindu and Moslem  partitions; they led to the killing of the lylahatma by a Hindu  from an extreme sect who  believed that Gandhi was adr  vocating too much power for  the minority Moslems; they led  to the lines of battling refugees;  they have caused terrible  bloodshed and suffering  throughout the world since the  death of Gandhi; and they have  led mankind today to the edge  of an abyss where, from fear of  others*ithe species stands ready  < to launch itself into extinction.  , How did they grow so strong?  ��� At the beginning of the independence movement in India, Gandhi and his small  group of supporters were of  both Moslem and Hindu persuasion. As the Mahatma said,  there were Moslems and Hindus living peacefully side by  side in every village in India.  It is only when the independence movement is well  advanced that fears of the  mistreatment of the Moslem  minortiy are expressed. And  they are first depicted as being  expressed by the representatives of the empire that Gandhi sought to displace.  "Without the administrative  skills and experience of the  British, how can the Moslem  safety be assured."

Slangs & Arrows]  k5e or ge Mat��he vrj|*  The likelihood that the  Ministry of Education will be  testing the parents of students  in grades 3, 4, 7, 10 and 12 this  year should give those parents  some pre-exam jitters. Most  parents haven't been in the  classroom for some time and  we can anticipate that they will  be boning-up on their math and  English skills before the exams  in June. Consequently, this  might be a good time to offer  parents some advice On how to  prepare for their exams.  Before offering advice,  however, let me explain how  parents will be tested. First of  all the Ministry of Education  ,will.v be festirigj-, the ��k;ills;-; in  reading; writing and mathematics of all students in grades 3,  4, 7, 10 and 12 this June. The  results of these tests will be  analysed and reported by the  Educational Research Institute  of British Columbia. The  analysis will compare the  academic skills among those  tested.  The analysis will also reflect  how well students have been  prepared for these tests. There  are perhaps three major factors  which will influence how well  students perform: students'  native intelligence, the effectiveness of teachers in preparing the students, and the effectiveness of parents in preparing  their children. In the first case,  students' I.Q is a predictable  factor. IQ is statistically  distributed over a normal  range, i.e.: few students are  really thick, few are really  bright and most are somewhere  in the middle. Generally speaking, the brighter students will  perform better than the dull  ones. We certainly don't need  an exam to prove this.  Secondly, we have the effectiveness of teachers in preparing students. In the case of  teachers, we are talking about a  much narrower range of ability. Compared to a population  of students or a population of  parents, teachers are more or  less similar in their ability to  teach. They have all graduated  from university; they generally .  like children; they are more or  less middle-class; and most  have been trained in one of only  three universities.  In other words, teachers are  more the same than different;  they represent a fairly  homogenous group in terms of  intelligence, ability and talent.  So, of all the factors that will  account for the differences in  performaiice of students, the  difference between teachers  will account for the least difference.  Parents, on the other hand,  represent the most variable and  diverse influence on children.  They aire no doubt distributed  on a normal statistical curve,  but the range pf ability will be  very large between the most effective parent and the least effective, at least in terms of  preparing their children for  academics. As a result, the one  factor that is really being examined in these June exams will  be parenting skills.  Parents! Are you ready far  that? ��� : ���,���:������'��������� ."���' ."'���'.  When the Ministry of Educa>  tibn publishes the results of the  June compulsory exams, the  results will, more than any  other factor, reveal how effective parents have been. Student  intelligence will be a totally  predictable factor in the results  and therefore not worth extensive comment. Teachers are so  similar as to be relatively unimportant in accounting for dif-  ferences in results. Parents, oh  the other hand, will be the most  influencing factor and it is the  skills or parents that will hav��  been tested and revealed for ajl  '.How will parents on the Sun-.;  shine, Coast rate, comparedv  let's say to the parents of Victoria or the western half erf  Vancouver? The demographics  of those areas probably reflect  an educated, professional,  upper-middle class environment in which children are  more often directed at a very  early age toward a university  education. Academic skills are  encouraged, tutors are hired  for children with learning problems, and education has a  high priority in the typical  household in those areas.  If you're still guessing at the  answer to the previous question���don't bother. The  students of parents in Victoria  and the western half of Vancouver . will perform  significantly better than  students on the Sunshine  ���v Coast. Are the children in those  areas any more intelligent?  Probably not. Are the teachers  any different? Hardly any different. Are the parents any different? On the average���considering the fact that more than  half of the students in those  schools are college boiind~l  would say the parents are  significantly different; and it  will be these differences in  parenting in academics which  will be revealed in the June exams.  Now, how should parents  prepare for their exams? First,  turn off the TV set; second,  spend two hours a night���every  night, doing homework with  your children; third, at every  opportunity, instill in your  children the importance pf  academic skills.  Furthermore, remember that  while in high school a student  will be working on English  skills less than a total of 1,000  hours, the time spent with  parents will be something like  3,650 hours, given two hours a  day for the "five years of high  school. How are your grammar  skills, parents? Do you say  things like "I did good at work  today", or " between you and  I"'? ������"���;  Amazing how that 3,650  hours can erode that 1,000  hours of class time.    ;  When the results of this  year's parents' tests are  published, I'll report the  figures. They should be interesting. In the,meantime  parents, good luck on your exams.  &I1  ���,?���.���*���  % Coast News, March 7,1983  Editor,  �� My article "A Cutting Case''  apparently struck a raw nerve  & the secretary-treasurer of the  jgoard of School Trustees,  Evidenced by his lengthy letter  ^ the February 28 edition of  pie Coast News.  ^ Over the years I. have  afcrupulously        avoided  references to the local school  gcene. My scope is provincial.  i^Phe poem to which he appears  to have taken exception is titled  i&The Ballad of the B.C. Student, 1983". It is a composite  jipf all the cutbacks that are taking place in theprovince.  t||If it does riot apply to the  ^arishine Coast pupils, I am ;  Relighted.

Mr. Mills obviously identifies himself with that group (a  thing I would never have done  to him) and has shot his bolt.  My head is bloody but unbowed.  ; But, Mr. Editor, imagine all  that verbiage and venorn being  turned on a novice trustee, out  to reform, who might ask in all  '. innocence the crucial question,  "Why cannot we simplify the  school system to better support  the classroom teacher? Starting  with the Sunshine Coast?"  That trustee would have been  blown out of the board room.  As a citizen of the Sunshine  Coast, and NOT in the role of  an "educational expert'' (a title  I have NEVER applied to  myself), I think I had a right to  ask that question.

I wish further to let people  know that I put in my bid for  the office of mayor because I  felt it would be unfair for  anyone to slip into the seat uncontested.  If elected I will work with the  council in an effort to bring  several items outstanding to a  conclusion and to make what  progress we can on hew projects.  The sewer function is one of  our main concerns at present  but we have been holding  meetings to keep ourselves informed in all facets of sewer  changes.  The zoning by-law is almost  ready for public hearing and we  have segregated the sign and  fence portions of this by-law to  make separate iteriis of these  two functions.  Citizens within the village  and those contemplating mov-  .   ing into the village should acquaint themselves with all  governing by-laws.  The library expansion is  another project we are vitally  concerned with, however, we  will have to see our outstanding  taxes come in before we can  move too quickly on this.  We have a co-operative staff  arid hard-working aldermen at  present so we should be able to  steer a clear course forward.  Vote your choice, but do.  please vote March 19.  J. Kolibas  Propane  defended  Editor*  Come on propane consumers! It's time we stood  behind our supplier, if you  don't want to pay exorbitant oil  prices or if you are not in aposi-  tion to get free beach-:w,ood,  we're gdmg to have a problem  which really is an unnecessary  panic or scare.  Stop and think of the oil  tanks in the Gibsons area. How  long have they been situated  where they are in the boat harbour? That COULD be a  disaster area tod.  think of the big tanks at  Davis Bay sub-division; or by  Sechelt's new condominium  area; or at Sunnycrest mall.  These tanks could be as  dangerous.  It's all highly unlikely and  I'm quite sure we'll never get  weather as hot as Spain or  Arizona to cause all this concern.  Grace Gilchrist  Kinsmen  Editor,  The Kinsmen Club of Gibsons would like to thank all the  residents of the Sunshine Coast  who responded to our 1983  campaign. This year to date we  have collected $5,230.31 All  money collected stays in British  Columbia td help the disabled  of this province.  To all our Marchers, a big  thank you for braving the  elements; without your contribution our campaign would  not be possible.  A special thanks to a tremendous group of people, the Gibsons Rovers.and Venturers,  who worked with our club on a  committee basis, stuffed  envelopes and marched as well.  These^young people are a credit  to our community.  Any reader who knows  anyone who may be helped by  the Kinsmen Rehabilitation  Foundation, please contact Kin  Tom Smith at 886-7565.  For those people who may  have been missed, and would  still like to contribute please  forward any donations to the  Kinsmen Club of Gibsons, Box  22, Gibsons.  Rick Wray  M. M.

The results of my questioning reveal that most men  familiar with Cameron's  writing would like to have x  heard her speak but assumed  they wouldn't be allowed to attend and didn't feel they would  be welcome. All felt the situation unfair. Most women I  spoke to agreed.  Why is it then, that a general  interest event such as this is  labelled a woman's dinner?  Many readers will argue that  it is unfair to single out this one  event and criticize and it as unfair because Continuing  Education has tremendously  enriched lifestyle on the coast.  But it is also a great opportunity to illustrate that most people  are interested in seeing the opposite gender's point of view.  -This!riiust be encouraged whole  heartedly; We are all? people.

Continued British presence,  however, has done nothing to  bring the slaughter to an end in  Ireland arid perhaps the  demons of division and distrust  were fed by the British in India  and elsewhere for their narrowly selfish ends.  Could it be that the British  Empire and its administrators  were in large measure a part of  the problem rather than part of  the solution? Did Gandhi's  ideas fail to carry the day in India because of a subtler evil  than simple exploitation? Can  it be that the seeriiingly fatuous  and ineffectual representatives  of the Empire knew well, if little else, how to divide and conquer? What is the legacy of the  British Empire in those parts of  the map which once were coloured pink?  !     I 'I  I i  i i  i !

V  by Ruth Forrester 885-2418  DID YOU CALL? ~  I wonder how many of our  residents responded to the letter in last week's issue which  had been written by the President of the Area B Ratepayer's  Association. It had to do with  the recent controversy over lot  sizes for future developments  in our area and was a request  for input from you. There were  plenty of comments at the time  when the issue was first  brought to the fore, but the  Board of this Association  would like to know that you are  all behind them in their protest  of the overturning of our local  Settlement Plan's recommendations by the SCRD.  The only way that this  Association can take the  necessary action is if they have  good strong membership and  know that they are acting on  your behalf. It is in fact, the only voice that you have here who  will go to bat for you when you  feel that you are being unjustly  treated arid walked upon by the  powers that be. They have  fought many local battles for  you - have won some and lost  some, but at least they are in  there trying. So why not pick up  that phone and give a call to  some of the Board members at  these numbers - 885-3334,  885-3126 or 885-9276. They do  need your support.  Those of us in the Redrooffs  area are at a very unfortunate  disadvantage when it comes to  establishing policies for our  area because we are in fact so  greatly outnumbered by voting  residents of the West Sechelt  area who are also included in  Area B. In most matters crucial  to us they can vote us down by  the fact that they are about two  to one of us. This is not done  with any deliberately harmful  intention nor in any malicious  way by our good neighbours iri  West Sechelt.

Gwen in Gibsons  Carnival  appreciated  by Gwen Robertson, 886-3780  You should have been there  J at; the Survival Carnival;-Day  one is oyer. The panels were excellent as were the displays and  . entertainment. .''Many  Moons''; received a standing  ovation���my nearly three year  Old granddaughter commented  "That was a good show.'', as  we left in the car. Need I say  more? Look for the advertisement in the Coast News for  more showings of "Many  Moons".  The panelists were well  prepared and each established a  good rapport with the audience. Beginning with the  "Hungry Thirties", where  each panel member had a surprisingly, different perspective  of the era, the panels took more  time than the alloted 60  minutes and could well have  taken another 60 minutes.  Dr. Helea Caldicote's film  "If you Love This Planet",  had by my last count, four  showing; As one'of these showings preceded my panel  "Future Survival", we spent  several minutes duscussing the  merits of the film and its subject matter���planning how best  to present it to a wider audience, (school children, for example).  Each panel pointed out the  necessity for us to improve our  knowledge and skills if we are  to survive a prolonged recession but, more importantly,  survive after the recession. It  was stated, and restated, that  we pay far too little attention to  one basic need���to be aware of  what is going on outside one's  tiny circle or even within one's  own tiny circle.

The native people of Vancouver Island have preserved  for generations the history of  their people through oral tradition that is now threatened to  be lost.  Yet in its telling there is a  strong feeling of hope for the  whole world along with the  sadness of what happened  when the explorers stopped this  way.  Weaving together the lives of  mythic and imaginary  characters, Daughters of Copper Woman offers a shining vision of womanhood, of how  the spiritual and social power  of women���though relentlessly  challenged���can endure and  survive.  Anne Cameron's books are  so popular that the bookstores  have trouble keeping them in  stock.

Polii- Rd.  Gibsons  At the Arts Centre  Coast News, March 7,1983  by Belinda MacLeod  At the Arts Centre this week  is an interesting exhibit entitled  "Beginnings and Endings: the.  Progress of a Work of Art".  Nancy Angermeyer's painting, with its powerful design,  skilful foreshortening and  vibrant colours is painted in  traditional style but uses non-  traditional subject matter. The  painter has concentrated on the  space that most people avoid  looking at���the feet rather than  the head; the popcorn littered  .. floor between the seats- o. a  cinema. Accompanying the  painting is a pencil sketch,  some notes on the figure in the  painting and two photos the artist has used for reference.  Another work which uses  photography is "Marine" by  Burrell Swartz. In this case,  however, the photo, a glossy ad  from "Life of an Idealized  Young' Marine", is used as a  starting point rather than a  drawing aid, and the photo is  transformed by the artist's imagination. Other artists have  worked directly from nature or  from their sketches, while  others have been inspired by  works by other artists. '.    -  The materials used in this exhibition are as varied as the  styles and have an effect on the  artist's workJ Printrriakers and  sculptors must plan their work  and patiently go through a long  process before they can see the  result of their initial inspiration, while painters arid  photographers can put their,  ideas down more directly.  Some artists try to retain their  original concept, while others  prefer to let their work develop  GIBSONS  Tuesday, March 8  SECHELT       ���;���������'���:  Thursday, March 8  Beginning at 7 p^rri.

Frank is the author of an interesting  chronology of life in West Howe Sotind in the 90  year period from j 886 to 1976;  The occasion, of course, was the Survival Carnival, held this past weekend at Elphinstone high  school, it was Organized as part of the Continuing  Education Programme by Selia Karsten.  For me, even the 2Vi hours of private talks in  preparation for the panel discussion made it all worthwhile.  Each of us reviewed our background in  brief, leading up to the '30s, and how we fared in  those years.  1 had never met Mr. Wiren, who at 82, is an active  and interesting narrator. He was six years old when  his family arrived here to begin "stump" ranching as  he put it. That was in 1906, just 20 years after old  George Gibson himself landed on these shores.  Frank Wyngaert arrived in 1909 as a child, two  years of age. His father, an ironworker by trade,  bought 52 acres on Cemetery Road and proceeded  to clear and build other buildings and farm.  We were told that there were only three pioneer  families able to earn their living entirely from the  farm, the Wirens, the Steinbruners and the  Wyngaerts.  Connie's story broughtput the manner in which  the loss of work by her father, who was a skilled  tradesman   literally destroyed  his  confidence  in  himself, and the shame he felt when his wife had tol  go out and earn their living as a housekeeper. They|  lived in Montreal at the time.  I can't begin to recount in detail the interesting!  revelations from the personal experiences of all of|  us. just let me say this:  1. Get, and read Frank Wyngaert's "The West|  Howe Sound Story".  2. The comparisons between the '30s and thel  '80s worthy of making are mainly those relating to|  the use of one's time.  3. Happiness is a state of mind. If we can learn to|  become content with our lot in life, we can be happy. '���������.".  4. We can cope with our future more easily if wej  can understand and learn from our past.  5. Careful budgeting is a means of sorting out the|  difference between one's wants and one's needs.  by Bill Edney  ''REALWIIT'  K.L.D.

Extended Care Unit enjoy an outing and a tea break at the Arts Centre  ���John Burnside photo  St. Mary's auxiliaries merge  by Peggy Connor  Close to 100 people attended  the annual volunteer meeting  for St. Mary's Hospital Auxiliary at Roberts Creek community hall on Wednesday,  February 23.  Volunteer director Mary  MacDonald had a fine pro:  gramme lined up starting with  the auxiliary prayer by Betty  Laidlaw, assistant volunteer  director and chairman of the  Sechelt branch of the auxiliary.  Florence McSavaney of  Roberts Creek was secretary  for the day.  Peggy Gallos, chairman of  the Roberts Creek branch and  her helpers set up the hall for  the meeting.  The director then introduced  the interim board of the Sechelt  Auxiliary to St. Mary's  Hospital, president Pauline  Lambe; vice-president Edith  Simmons; secretary Joan  Rigby, treasurer Carol Rigby  (absent, patient at the  hospital); board representative  for the auxiliary Charlotte  Raines; and past president  Billie Steele.  First volunteer director for  St. Mary's hospital, Peggy  Connor, talked of' thieV first-  work done by the. auxiliaries^7  the taking around of the basket  for personal shopping for the  patients. ���-���'..-  Chief engineer from St.  Mary's, Harry Jenkins,  displayed the ABC fire extin-  quishers and explained the uses  of each. He also spoke on the  disaster plan and the volunteer  role.  Training co-ordinator  Darlene Snell showed a few  slides explaining how to move  patients in an emergency situation.  Pauline Hoene, ultrasound  technician, explained the  diagnostic value of an ultra  sound examination assisted by  slides.  The pictures taken by the  ultrasound are then referred to  the radiologist Dr. McCannell  to be read and then passed onto  the patient's doctor to inform  the patient.  Nursing supervisor Wendy  Hunt then spoke about what  accreditation meant to the  hospital. Comparing it to a  beauty contest with many of  the same requirements.  Three-year accreditation  rating is granted when  established standards are met.  A two-year rating means standards are being met but there  are a few weaknesses. A one-  year rating is provisional when  more serious weakness in essential functions have been observed.  St. Mary's hospital has had  two three-year accreditations  and of course is now heading  for another three years. These  ratings all enhance the quality  of care, and are only achieved  by co-operation of all.  Vice-chairman of St; Mary's  Hospital Society Guy Lewall  spoke on the joint meeting held  in January with the auxiliary  council. They are anxious at all  ..times .tpp^eep a.good liarsoti.

Arts Centre  presents  Bergman  This 1978 film by Ingmar  Bergman is something of a  tribute to Ingrid Bergman as it  was her last major screen performance before her television  portrayal of Golda Meir.

V-w  Creek  by Moira Richter  The community library in  Roberts Creek has ; been^  designated a reading centre.  The hours of operation have  been increased to six*per week,  thus qualifying for the government grant recently received.  Nine volunteers are prepared  to serve the readers of this area.  The Monday opening has not  been successful so will be  discontinued after March 14.  Beginning March 7 the  Thursday opening is increased  to four hours, 3-7 p;m. It is  hoped that this will be more  convenient for people returning home from work or shopping in one of the villages. It will  also serve the children immediately after school.  There is a suggestion box in  the library and the committee  will try to file requests. Seaview  Market has a box for book  returns but* please attach your  name to any returns. The  library membership of $2 per  family per year can be a grand  investment.  visitors  The Volunteer Visiting Program is the newest service to be  'developed at the Volunteer Action Centre. A regular friendly  visit from a volunteer will help  the day pass more quickly for a  disabled or senior person who  has difficulty getting out into  the community. Perhaps the  client and visitor will read a  book, share a craft, play a  game, enjoy a drive, or discuss,  an idea. However they decide  to spend their time together,  each one will be enriched by the  friendship which will develop.  If you would like to participate  in the Volunteer Visiting Program as a client or a visitor,  please phone the Volunteer Action Centre at 885-5881 for  formation.  *r SUNSHIN  PEST CONTROL & HEALTH SERVICES LTD.

Coast News, March 7,1983  I- Chatelech secondary school  "w senior boys' basketball for-  * ward Grant Glessing was  * honoured two weeks ago at the  ���.Howe Sound Single "A"  \ champions as he was named to  "���: the first team all-stars for the  �� championship.  ��\ Chatelech finished fifth in  I' the championships in its first  I year competing on the senior  i boys' basketball circuit and the  I 16 year old Glessing was a ma-  * jor factor in what Chatelech  *\ coach Bob Corbett considers a  successful first season. The six  ��� foot one inch grade 11 student  ��� will be back next season along  ��� with 11 of 12 of the team's  ��� players. Coach Corbett looks  '. forward to a winning season  '. next year and is particularly in-  ! terested in promoting a  ; regional basketball rivalry with  ; Elphinstone in the hopes of  popularizing the sport which,  at one time, saw Elphinstone  ranked among the top four or  five teams in the province.  Corbett told the Coast News  that at a recent game between  Steveston and Richmond in the  lower mainland, 800 spectators  paid $3 each to watch the game.  If such enthusiasm could be  sparked locally, Corbett suggests that it would go a long  way toward making the sport  into a money making proposition for the school, not to mention helping to improve the  quality of basketball on the  local level.  Meanwhile, all-star Glessing  intends to keep in shape playing  soccer for the Elphinstone  Wanderers in preparation for  what he hopes next season will  be a trip to the single "A" provincial basketball finals.

The Kats displayed very  strong set and line out play  throughout the first half winning almost all possessions.  Loose play saved the younger  Gibsons side.  Second half action saw continuous pressure from the Kats  but Gibsons held on and finally  scored from a brilliant run by  scrum-half Ken Miles. Ken,  with surprising support by  number 8 John Duffy, pulled  two beautiful fakes which left  the bewildered Kats wondering  where he was. Final score 14-0.

J  Many thanks to Carol Skytte  for all trie hours spent  coaching, telephoning and  organizing for the juniors.  . The last day of league curling  isNon March 10 with playoffs  following the next two weeks.  Our last event is the club mixed  spiel slated for March 26 and  27..The wind-up dinner and  dance will be at the Roberts  Creek community hall April  16, Tickets on sale now at the  club.  Gibsons Goldhawks ran into  another tough Sechelt team on  Saturday, March 5 and were'  defeated 1-0 by the Sechelt  Drifters at Sechelt elementary.  Meanwhile at Roberts Creek,  Sechelt Pacmen defeated the  Roberts Creek team to jump into first place in the 8-9 year old  division in the second half. /  Two Division VIII. teams  have been confirmed from  Powell River to. attend a four  'team tournament with two  local teams for April 1 and 2.

John Seaman, who has an  oyster growing business up Jervis Inlet, gave an interesting  talk on some aspects of producing oysters for the market and  indicated that production  needs to be greatly increased in  order to satisfy consumer  demands for both fresh and  processed oysters.  After listening to comments  by other growers and reading  various publications it would  seem that the oyster, whose  traditional lifestyle was a  somewhat lazy existence reclining in communal beds just  guzzling seawater and leisurely  growing over a period of up to  20 years, is faced with a rude  awakening. The Rip Van  Winkle existence is definitely  over for poor old Mr. Oyster.  From now on he may be  strung out on lines, hung from  rafts, grown in trays or stoked  in the mud. It seems that each  location has a different method  of culture.  <  Innovative ways are being  developed and encouraged.  Aquaculture in B.C. is getting a new high profile and an  Coast Naturalists  -(m  infusion of funds from the provincial government. Biologists  from the Marine. Resources.  Branch of the Ministry of the  Environment are working with  local growers to discover new  ways of producing marketable  shellfish in our coastal waters.  r   As I have stated in this col-  iumri on a number of occasions,  "we have a lot of catching up to  do. Growers in Japan, China,  Korea, Norway and the United  ; States   are   carrying   on  aquaculture in a very efficient  and profitable way and are exporting the products to us. So-  : meone said the other day "that  B.C. imports over $4 million of  s processed oysters each year".  We are in trouble with bur  primary industries of timber  jand mineral  production,  perhaps we should direct our  attention to supplying bur own  seafood needs and keeping  those import dollars at home.  Then if we can produce these  products in an efficient manner  we may be able to tap the world  demand   for   these   very  nourishing foods.  It depends on how motivated  we are to using our foreshore  for food production in conjunction with other uses including recreation and whether  we are prepared to buy and consume the products there-from.  ��� Sea you.  Season of wonder  by John Hind-Smith  Hundreds pf thousands of  little miracles; are.happening  right under pur noses; in the  creeks up and down the coast  but when the water rampages  down like it has'done over the  last couple of days, it is a  wonder any of these little guys  manage to survive at all.  The other dayT had the good  fortune to look at just, one of  these little wonders of nature at  closequarters;; Here was this  little fish moving around in his  own little world completely  unaware of the problems ��� he  and his kind are causing in this  part of the world today. - X'  /Over the cbiirse of the next  few years he will be subjected to  all kinds of dangers and adventures arid visit all kinds of interesting places and by some instinctive or intuitive means  which we humans know very  Carpet   Cabinet Ceramic Centre  North Rd., Gibsons  WOOD STOVE  (1) only Lll Soot (Brass Door)  (MoblleHome)- C.O.S.P.

Drop in for a Demonstration  for in Home Demo-  nttie about, he will in four years  time return to Wilson Creek as  a full grown coho salmon to  help reproduce the next generation of his species that he will  never live to see.  After eight long years we can  at last see some tangible results  of all our efforts. It has not  been a bed of roses by any  stretch of the imagination and  there's still lots of time for all  kinds of things to go wrong.  Two attributes which anyone  entertaining the idea of raising  salmon must have, is eternal  Optimism and lots and lots of  patience.  Problems are created to be  overcome. They can be natural  like floods and mud slides,  about which we can do very little, but they can also be man  made, sometimes carelessly  and sometimes thoughtlessly.  An example of the second  category occured recently.  Clearing of alders on the hydro  right-of-way was being carried  out in the upper reaches of  Wilson Creek and in the process machines were run through  the creek several times and the  ground was cleared of most  vegetation causing heavy silta-  tion in the creek. Siltation will  be repeated every time there is a  heavy rainfall. On several occasions the silt has been heavy  enough to plug a two inch  waterline supplying the incubation box. In this case the people  responsible pleaded ignorance  of the fact that the creek had  fish in it and whether they will  be charged or not is not known  at this time.  I have only mentioned one  creek here but there are many  up and down the coast all the  way from Twin Creek to  Anderson Creek in Pender  Harbour, all of them being  cared for by a mixed bag of  vplunteers and all trying to improve the wild salmon stocks  on the Sunshine Coast.

President Sue Whiting  opened the meeting at which 26  members were present.  '}. After the minutes were read  and approved the chair was  handed over to Amy Blain for  !he election of officers for the  coming year.  , We were happy to note that  all positions on the executive  were filled immediately and the  following ladies accepted their  hew positions: Sue Whiting,  president; Sandra Woodhouse,  yice-president; Vera Farr,  secretary; Marg Perry,  treasurer.  ; These ladies were all given a  pund of applause and a word  of thank you to those who had  forked hard last year was also  Extended.  \ The president Sue Whiting  again took the chair and the  following ladies took up their  positions on the various committees:    Helen    AH-mc  favours; Dorothy Heron, tuck  shop; Clem Cruickshank, sunshine girl; Rosemary Fay,  publicity; Linda Comeau,  flowers; Helen Weinhandle,  corsages.  After this brief and most successful election of all the officers the meeting proceeded. A  special thank you was extended  to Mrs. Celli Carlos and her  grade two class from Gibsons  elementary school who made  individual Valentine place-  mats for each resident and then  made a trip to the home to visit  with the residents, and sing a  few songs. This was expecially  appreciated by the residents  who hope to see these young  people again shortly. Apparently a puppet show and a  band show are on the list of  events which are planned by the  students for the Kiwanis  Home.  A bazaar will be held on  Saturday, April 23, 1983 from  1:30 to 3:00. There will be a raffle  fr.v ,.-u;~v.  tickets have  already been printed and were  handed out for sale. Two  beautiful prizes are offered as  well as the usual items of art  work, etc., that the residents  have been busy preparing.^  The meeting then welcomed  two guests from the kiwanis  Club of Gibsons, Daniel Devlin  and George Cooper, who came  to offer their help and the support of the Kiwanis club in any  project that we might undertake in the future such as the  possibility of purchasing a van.  Their practical and helpful suggestions will be taken under  serious consideration and we  wish to express our thanks for  their time and effort in attending our meeting.  Head nurse Cathy Baxter informed us that a new hair-;  dresser would be starting at the  home and that a supply of  towels were required. The auxiliary agreed to purchase these  necessary items.  This brought the meeting to a  close and we will meet again on  Wednesday, March 16, 1983.  by Frances Fleming  Television viewing is giving  the human race a fresh insight  into the lives and loves of other  living creatures, ranging from  lions to lemurs, from elephants  to emus, from ants to  antelopes.  There is no privacy in the  wild any more. In the comfort  of our livingrooms we see them  courting and copulating, enduring birth pangs, dedicating  their energies to the rearing and  the protection of their young.  And how dedicated they are!  In most instances, the entire  band will act as group parents,  ready to give up their lives in  defense of the helpless little  ones they identify as being vital  to the preservation of their  species.  But human beings seem to  have lost that collective instinct. In times of stress, we  seem to turn against our very  own children, and cut back services to them without anyone  getting very excited or upset.  Family allowances should be  increased as our collective  wealth increases, not frozen, or  cut back. Family allowances  should be extended to pregnant  women, to aid in their nutrition. I doubt that they ever will  be, in Canada.  Dental care is vital to a  child's proper growth and  development. It is being  withdrawn. In the thirties, I  remember the agony of dentists  who were paid to extract, but  not to fill, caried teeth of  welfare children. The children  of well-to-do parents will have  their Crest checkups, and or-  thodonty where needed. The  children of the poor will be the  denture wearers of tomorrow.  Richard Cohen, writing in  the Washington Post, states:  "Children, the raw materials of  any country, are undernourished and under-educated. This is  the true infrastructure of the  society and it is rotting at avery  young age. Suffer, the little  children."  The unrelenting attacks on  schools, teachers, health services, the importance given to  mega-projects and deficit  financing, the political  mahoeuverings to grab or retain power, spell doom for bur  species, the children of the poor  are as important to our country's future as the children of  the middle classes and the rich.  Education and schools should  give each child an equal opportunity to grow to a competent  and fulfilling adulthood.  School is where the scales  should balance, with extra  resources .jbeing poured in  where obvious inequality exists, extra resources in the form  of food, medical care, tuition,  clothing, whatever is necessary  to rear our young.  In America, according to  Cohen, the poor are in full  retreat. Families are eating at  soup kitchens. In some places  they are cold and homeless. In  other places they are out of  work, and discouraged. In all  places, they are miserable.  Alcoholism, violence and child  abuse follow as tempers flare  and nerves fray.  Teachers are one of the few .  groups who are trying to fight  back. They are being labelled  unpatriotic, disloyal, selfish,  unco-operative and money-  grabbing. Teachers are none of  these things. When they speak,  we should listen to them. We  should tell our political leaders  to back off the schools. Not only parents should be concerned.  The human race is at risk-  Children with respiratory  diseases  Thirty per cent of pediatric  admissions to St. Mary's  Hospital in 1981 were related to  respiratory disease such as  asthma, bronchitis, and  pneumonia. The aim of the  educational offering "Nursing  Children with Respiratory Disease: Meeting the Challenge" is  to review and update our nursing knowledge in order to provide our young patients and  their families with the best care  and support possible.  Recently three nurses from  our pediatric/medicine nursing  unit; June Bandi, Bev Brand  and Helga Fitzgerald, attended  a two day workshop on  pediatric respiratory disease.  They have prepared a programme^ in conjunction with  our inservice co-ordinator  Darlene Snell, and will present  relevant topics. In addition  some of the local doctors have  been invited to make presentations. Some of the topics include: Pathophysiology of  Acute Respiratory Disease;  Nursing Assessment and Nursing Management of the Child  with Acute Respiratory  Disease; Emergency and  Critical Care of the Child in  Respiratory Distress.  Nurses, not presently  employed at the hospital are invited to attend as there is a very  >eal desire on the part of health  care professionals to keep current and abreast of changes and  innovations in the delivery of  health care.

As the days-grow- warmer and the  garden wakes after the winter months,  there seems to be mjpre and more to do.  This is! one of the; busiest months for the  gardener, although many of the results of  this labour won't be apparent until  harvest time.  We've had a mildwinter this year and  the soil is workable now in most areas. A  general rule to follow is this; if a handful  of soil stays in a ball when squeezed it is  probably too wet to work, but if it  crumbles like cake it1 is ready. Peas like  the cold; in fact they may be planted in the  fall for an early spring crop. They like a  soil high in humus content to retain  moisture without letting it puddle. Dig a  trench about four inches deep along the  rows, with your netting or trellis in the  middle. Sow the seed quite thickly on  each side and cover with about an inch of  soil. As the seedlingsigrow, continue to  pull some of the soil into the trench until  ground level is reached. If you are planting the bush variety you may wish to give  them some support by criss-crossing lath  along the row, or using leafless branches  about two to three feet high as support.  This is called "pea bush". If you've  planted more than one set of peas you'll  find enough space Between the rows,  which should be about three feet apart, to  plant some green onions, spinach, and  lettuce. By the time the peas are growing  higher the others will benefit from the  shade provided;        -  Many seeds cannot be planted directly  outside at this time of year because of our  weather. You may, of course, buy seedlings from a nursery when the time is right,  but the expenses may be high if you intend  to plant a large garden. You can use many  different containers- to start seedlings;  small plastic pots, flats, tin cans, cut-  down milk cartons, used styrofoam cups,  wooden flats, or you may buy peat pots.  This can be expensive if you are planting a  great number of seeds; but the advantage  is that the seedlings do not have to be  disturbed when transplanting as the peat  pot will decompose :in the garden soil,  whatever container you use (other than  the peat pots), make sure they are clean  before filling with your potting mixture,  and that there is a hole in the bottom for  adequate drainage.  The type of potting medium may vary.  You may use a commercial potting mix,  or sterile vermiculite,or you may make  your own mixture; using equal parts of  fine sifted top soil, ground peat moss and  sand. You can sterilize this by pouring  boiling water through it-or-baking it in the ���--  oven for about an hour at a fairly hot   i  temperature. Once you have filled your   j  containers,   water, the   mixture   i  thoroughly. You may do this by standing  . each cpntaiiierin ^water an iiich or two  deep! si^^wtijglrl^iolseep up through  ���^tgXx-;^$:g 'Iff ���" ;  XX Many ^^r^n|k��*ds of vegetables and  ^Wers-^^!b|^anted indoors now, so  , the .seediings^wili be.re^xio transplant  $reh^t^ .;'  Sorrte%uggestip^^ ]  coli^^b^ge^  :sirmmef arid winter ' WrMy% tomatoes,   ���  peppers, e^g ,^njts^^awi(flowers,  'ageratunv^:C ;  fine spray. Seeds germinate at different  rates, but generally, when the first two  sets of true leaves appear, it is time to,  transplant to a larger container.

Childhood conference  Capilano College is presenting an Early  Childhood Conference, Saturday, March  12 at the Sechelt Learning Centre.  Many people involved with young  children locally require information on  training and licencing requirements. It is  not unusual for those already working in  the field to find it difficult to complete requirements or to upgrade qualifications  they already hold.  Another problem in the field is that  each;resource,-7!whether daycare,  playschool or in-home centre, works in  isolation; There are common concerns  and challenges which could likely be addressed more readily by a group approach. '.���"���;'!;:.'��� >���.'���' '^ '���- /...^ ._!:.��� ���,  This conference provides a'chance to  get workers together to discuss needs in  early childhood work on the Sunshine  Coast. In the morning two keynote  speakers will appear. Kay Britton of the  B.C. Preschool Teachers' Association  will talk about the advantages of forming  a local group. Lois Rennie of Capilano  College will discuss training in a rural  community.  In the Tatter part of the day the participants will get a chance to express their  needs and some solutions in small groups  led by local workers.  Anyone interested in early childhood  issues is invited to attend. This is your  chance to meet fellow workers and  parents and to express your local needs.

I'm writing in response to the  letter titled "Pro-lifers impose  views". I'd like to quote a couple of clear statements spoken  by very thoughtful and serious  men.  1. George F. Will: "The  idea that freedom of choice is  necessarily neutral as regards  social outcomes is the  characteristic pretense of  liberal societies: But liberal  societies do not '.'���provide"  freedom of choice without having certain expectations about  which choices will be made.  And they try to shape choices  by shaping attitudes. All  societies do this. Only liberal  societies pretend tp be  neutral".  2. Franky Schaeffer  Jr.: "Every human being  operates on the basis of faith  and religion, whether it is  organized or personal. Every  one believes in something by  faith;  "The humanist doctrine of  behaviour is not proven in a  neutral, scientific manner as-is  pretended by the humanist.  There is no such thing as  neutrality. All life is religious,  and in the same breath, all life is  secular. There is no division  betweenuthe two."  3. Franky Schaeffer  Jr.: "Everyone has some  moral base, even if that base is  that his morality is expressed in  immorality, or his faith is faith  in not having any faith at all.  The pretense that those who  have no religious or moral posi-'  tiohs iare somehow operating  from a more neutral and open-  minded stance is totally unsubstantiated, especially when  seen in the light of the religious  fervour with which they prorogate their position."  These statements make it  very clear to me that we who  choose to be pro-life are in ho  way imposing bur views any  more than those who are pro-  abortion, for to say pro-choice  is to be pro-abortion; as stated  there is no neutrality.     /  After ally abortion is  widespread; used, and encouraged in almost every sector  of our society. Who is imposing  their views, morals, life styles?  I send a picture of two of the  results of abortion and you tell  me, who imposed their morals  . :on:them?;7'���:.rv^.v.y.:uV  I will agree that there most  ��� certainly is a choice and people  are free to chooser But it's a  choice of believing a lie or  believing the truth; a choice of  right or wrong, for which each r  of us is responsible to decide.r  No one should make that decision for us.  : All who are capable of making a choice by the gift of intelligence and capable of  understanding are by the facts  of those gifts responsible to see,  ...know and think intelligently  kfor themselves. Is abortion  right or wrong? That's your only choice. .  : Once you've made that  choice, you either do and teach  right beliefs or wrong. But  : please don't let others make  that decision for you and  believe naively what you are  told by all the professionals of  our society. (Under the myth of  :. neutrality.)  Use your God-given brain to  know the facts, in truth, think'  outior yourselves and I have no  little doubt that the number of  pro-lifers will indeed grow.

I will instead use this  precious opportunity to thank  all of the wonderful people who  have addressed the issue for  me, both by phone and in the  media.

Coast sir.ce 1.967  Coast News, March 7,1983  17.  by Adrian Belshaw  Chatelech, Sechelt, Tuwan-  eic...as in many other parts of  North America v/e use native  Indian words as place-names in  our everyday speech. Yet many  people, especially those who  are new to the Sunshine Coast,  are surprised to learn that the  Sechelt language is still alive  and being spoken today.  The Sechelt speakers are the  elders on the Sechelt Reserve.  They are the ones who grew up  in homes where Sechelt was the  first spoken language. Among  the Sechelts, English did not  become the main language  spoken at home until the late  thirties. Now, efforts are being  made to revive the Sechelt  language in the younger  generations.  Just what is this "Sechelt  language"? Is it a "dialect of  Salish", as some people call it?  Or is it a language in its own  right, different enough from  any other to be called unique?  . Calling Sechelt a "dialect of  Salish" is like calling English a  "dialect of Indo-European".  The Salishan family of  languages is a large and varied  group. Salishan languages were  once spoken along most of the  Inside Passage, on the Olympic  Peninsula and around Puget  Sound and into the interior as  far as Shuswap, the Okanagan,  most of Idaho, and the western  tip of Montana. There were  Salishan enclaves at Bella  Coola to the north and  Tillamook, Oregon to the  south.  Sechelt does have strong  similarities to its nearest  linguistic neighbours, the  Sliammon of Powell River and  Comox and the Pentlatch of  Texada Island and Parksville.  Sechelt was spoken by the people living along Jervis Inlet,  Sechelt Inlet, and most of the  Sunshine Coast. A Sechelt  speaker: could often understand Sliammon or Pentlatch,  just as a Spanish speaker can  understand some Portuguese  or Italian. However, the differences in pronunciation and  vocabulary are big enough for  most linguists to think pf these  _as separate languages. The  >4sjinilarities, on the other hand,  -are strong enough to group  Sechelt,   Sliammon,  and  ifPentlatch together in the North  -Georgia Branch of the Coast  -Division of the Salishan  :r languages.  Sechelt is less closely related  ;  to the languages in the South  Georgia Branch. This branch  includes the Squamish of North  Vancouver and Squamish, and  ;;  the Halkomeleni spoken in all  r  its dialects from Nanaimo to  ;j,:.:?Point Grey and up the Fraser  i galley as far as Hope.  iO'j?Although   the   Sechelt  \ilanguage has changed since  contact with the Europeans, it  is still.a rich, beautiful tongue  ;with great expressiveness. It  can flow from one speaker's  .-mouth like a gentle river, or  -come sharp and coarse from  ;    another.  The Sechelt sound system is  quite different from ours. For  .one thing, there are no voiced  -  consonants like our "b", "d", ���  -rcor "g". The Sechelt language  7 v more than makes up for the  ���.v.Jolack of these sounds by having  v; what are, called ."glottalized"  .consonants. The glottalized  consonants are said with a  ���j, catch in the back of the throat  and are written with an  apostrophe: "f ", "p' ", "k'  h ; ", "ch' ", "q' ", "ts'".The  a consonants may also be  -"labialized", that is, said with  X\ -the lips rounded so that a "w"  XX sound can often be heard  before and after the consonant.  \it   The Sechelt language is rich  y , in sounds made in the back of  s the mouth, like "k", "q" (like  o. "k", but said further back in  ?!.'������.��� the throat), "kh" (like the  .  "ch"in the Scottish "lock"),  ;; "qh", and their glottalized and  ';'   labialized variants.  j t;    One particularly beautiful  5; -sound is "Ih", which is made  >q by breathing past the edges of  ij.'rr: the tongue when it is held near  the position for saying the  English "r". This is a sound  i���  well-loved by the Welsh, who  spell if "11".

Council learned that  ;,the Land Commission had rejected two applications for a  change in status for land in the  Agricultural Land Reserve.  ���' An application to exclude a  large area of land between  Reed, Payne and North Roads,  which includes the land behind  the Sunnycrest Mall was turned  down. Mayor Goddard told the  Coast News that wFle she  doesn't feel that the If id concerned is good agricultural  land, she is willing to abide by  the ruling.  However, council is trying to  arrange a meeting with Jack  Heinrich, Minister of  Municipal Affairs, to discuss  the proposed extension of town  boundaries to include several  lots on Payne and Reed roads.  There is concern that growth of  the municipality is being  limited by provincial  authorities. ��� >.  ���  ���, The Agricultural Land Commission has also rejected a proposed rezoning of land inside  ,the ALR on Payne Road. The  Commission does not approve  , of lot sizes lower than five acres  for land in the''freeze'' and the  Town wants to apply a  minimum lot size of two acres.  The Commission wants the  Town to develop a special zoning for ALR land.  An attempt by council last  year to have the Land Commis^  sion exclude ALR land within  Gibsons boundaries from the  land reserve met with the same  result. At that time, council  was told that the Official Community Plan must outline the  purposes and projected zoning  for land within the ALR that is  requested for exclusion. The  Gibsons Community Plan is  still incomplete and it remains  unclear as to why the town requested exclusion with the plan  unfinished.   ,  A resolution to urge the  government to alter its view- \  point about public spending to  meet certain urgent needs of the  municipalities was proposed by  Alderman Edney. He expressed disagreement with the view  that "we can spend no more  money and incur no further indebtedness." The resolution  will be presented for discussion  to the Annual General Meeting  of the Association of Vancouver Island Municipalities.

Billie Steele,  Sechelt; Peggy Gallo, Roberts  Creek; and Eva Rideout, Port  Mellon are the nominating  committee.  Plans are under way for a  Christmas bazaar in November  and several items were received  at this meeting, as already a  number of ladies are busy making things. "������'.'���  The industrial education  teachers of School District'46  have launched a campaign to  protest what may amount to  the end of the training rjro-  gramme which allowed  tradesmen to become teachers  of woodwork, metalwork,  draughting and auto mechanics  in the public schools of the province.  A spokesman for the IE  teachers told the Coast, News  Friday that the local IE  teachers'- association, with the  support of the superintendent  of schools, will write letters'of  protest to the Ministry of  Universities, Science and Communications, the ministry  responsible for funding the IE  teacher training programme,  and will be asking people to  sign a petition in support of the  continuation of the Division of  Industrial Education at the  University of British Columbia.  The majority of seven industrial education teachers  Carnival  well  received  by Judith Wilson  Survival in all its aspects,  economic, physical, mental,  emotional and spiritual, was  the theme of a celebration  which drew people of all ages to  Elphinstone school last weekend. The aim of the carnival  was to show people how to survive the present difficult times  with all their attendant problems. To this end there were  panel discussions covering  topics which ranged from stress  to small business, to food  gathering and demonstrations,  and displays of survival skills  and crafts. <  Theatre presentations  reminded the crowd that there  is still fun arid entertainment to  be found in times of adversity.  Small children clambered  over a large partly carved totem  pole lying in the middle of  Elphinstone gym. The pole is  being carved by a group from  the Sechelt Indian Band, led by  Arnold Jones, and will .eventually be part of a group of six  pples in front of the new hall on  the Sechelt Indian band property- ���; ���"':������ ./' ������:'  . Adults learned how their  time arid skills can be put to  work for the benefit of the community by such organizations  as the Food Bank, the  Volunteer Action Centre and  the Exchange Network. '  A lunch eating crowd en-;:  joyed a performance Of "The X  Little Prince" presented by f  Ensemble Theatre. This was  followed by a presentation by  Nikki Webber and her troupe  of young performers.  In the evening the first performance bf a locally  developed musical, "Many.  Moons", was given astanding  ovation by the enthusiastic audience,   v      ' "��� :rx  Much food for thought was =  provided by the many panelists  and it would be interesting to  see their topics further developed in future workshops. It  was encouraging to hear Dr.  David Gerring explain the  situation we find ourselves in at  present can be a very creative  one if we use our stress wisely..  "You can decide which way  you want to go," he said. "You  can decide whether to survive  of not."  Those who attended Survival?;:  Carnival surely discovered new  and interesting ways to survive  in our present circumstances.  m  SUPERSHAPE UNISEX HAIR DESIGN  proudly welcomes "AUU*.  to its present staff.

In the spring of 1982, UBC  was informed by the ministry  that funding for the only IE  teacher training faculty in the  province would be phased out.  Furthermore, the lease on the  training facility, at BCIT has  not been renewed and it ap-  . pears as though the training  programme which graduates 75  to 80 teachers a year will collapse. As a result, there will be a  shortage of trained teachers at  a time when, according to the  minister of education, there is  to be a revamped curriculum  for vocational education in the  province to encourage greater  vocational training for  students.  Until now, more than half of  IE teachers graduated in the  province^ have been  journeymen who, with ayear  and a half of teacher training  through the Division of Industrial Education, were given  -qualifications for teaching in  B.C. schools. The other IE  teachers have gone through five  years training at UBC which included specialized training at  the specially designed facility  of BCIT.  The issue arose as a result of  what appears to be a dispute  between UBC and the Ministry  of Universities, Science and  Communications in which the  ministry insists that UBC fund  the programme through its own  budget, while the university insists funds continue to be provided on the traditional "earmarked" basis.  Whatever the source of the  dispute, local IE teachers are  worried that if training for  vocational teachers ends, programmes designed to train  students- in woodwork,  metalwork, draughting and  mechanics will have to be cut  and the large sums of money  already spent on machinery,  equipment arid shop space will  be wasted. The concern arises  at a time when industrial education teachers - are already in  short supply in the province.  *  *  *  *  *  *  *  *  *  *  *  *  *  *  *  *  *  **.**��.'��.* �������.���  ��.���������*������-�������� ����������-����� �� ����� ����� �������������-�� ��  ENSEMBLE  M/- presents ,  "MANY MOONS'  and  "THE LITTLE PRINCE"  ROBERTS CREEK HALL  MARCH Lif-7PM,[i25-2PM & 7PM,|13r2PM  Limited Seating Available  All Tickets $3.00  RESERVE AT THE BOOK STORE 885-2527 or SEAVIEW MARKET 885-3400  *  *  *  *  *  *  *  *  *  *  *  *  *  *  *  *  *  *  *  *  ��V ��'�� �� �� J��#. +;'   ��������������*�������������� * "* �� ��.-V�� ��  D.A.
