With her are her first and second  In Lower Gibsons  princesses Lila Turrell and Cheri Adams; and Miss Congeniality,1  Deanna Cattanach. ���KcnniManimi photo  A glimpse of yesterday  by Fran Burnside  A flashback to Gibsons's past  occurred' last week when renovations to the face of Seaview  Gardens Restaurant on Marine  Drive uncovered the original  storefront sign of "Wally Graham,  :*viwK^?*i-a_^^  wo^^^LARI^)^*^;}^u ,  fhe old sign unleashed a flood  of memories in long-time residents  about a truly unique coast  character, and as many curious  questions in newcomers, and no  , one was more delighted about it  than Wally's daughter, Joan  Mahlman.  "Lots of people will remember  him for his sharp, quick temper,"  Joan recalls, "and for getting  things done. He didn't think twice  about going to help a person in  trouble, and if something needed  doing he'd do it. He was a real  character!"  Wally Graham was born in  Manchester, England, and came to  the Sunshine Coast via the British  Royal Navy - where he was a cadet;  Australia - where he learned sheep  shearing; Calgary ������������- where he  became a pilot and married Olive  Ross, still a Gibsons resident; and  Vancouver - where he had a  barbershop on Howe Street.  One day in 1939 he was cruising  along these shores when he noticed  a boat foundering and went to the  rescue of Frank Wyngaert, then  owner of the Village Store. In helping bring Frank's boat in he got to  see the area up close, fell in love  with the place and moved his family right over.  They lived in a house where  Ken's Lucky Dollar is now, and  Wally leased the Shell station on  the corner and its outlet on.the  wharf from C.P. Smith, Harry's  father.  "It was quite common to see  him giving haircuts on an apple  box at the gas station," Joan  remembers.        ,  There was a restaurant building  which had been closed down next  to the Village Store. "There had  been a jukebox and dance floor in  it, the lighting was dim, and it was  thought to be leading teenagers  astray, so it was condemned,"  chuckles Joan. Wally bought the  building and turned it into a hardware store.  But not just a hardware store!  He also soid dry goods, had a window where one went for marine  repairs, set up his barbershop, and  moved his family in downstairs. He  did cement work and plumbing,  became the water commissioner,  took a first aid course and used his  van to provide the area's first ambulance service.  Wally was also the one called  upon to use his van when a community member died and the body  had to be moved, and recognizing  a need he took training as a mortician. In 1946 he sold his hardware  store to Jack and Jim Marshall,  and bought the former home of  Fred Gibsons on Seaview Lane,;  converting it into a funeral parlour  (the present Devlin Funeral Home)  - but with an area set aside for a  barbershop. "He never did get out  of barbering," Joan recalls.  But his new work was hard on  Wally, and he eventually got for-  K-   ���"���'���   . .'Ml       !���������������     ���  -__-������ ii i i  maldehyde poisoning in his. hands.  So he sold his business tloJohn  Harvey and built the Graham  Block, the waterfront building now  housing "the Gypsy" restaurant,  Unexpectedly uncovered during renovations last week was the  original Gibsons storefront of "Wally Graham, Merchant*'.  ���Fran Burnside pholo  On gas pipeline  Decision  si  Wayne Nesbitt, Liberal candidate for Comox-Powell River expressed disappointment and deep  concern over the B.C: government  decision in choosing the southern  route for the Vancouver Island gas  pipeline.  Nesbitt stated "we're. losing  jobs, investment and an opportunity to confidently develop this  area". The tragedy is that we're  losing a new energy corridor that  could have opened up an exciting  part of the province to the people  Sechelt notes  "I'm really impressed with the  program," PEP committee chairman Graham Craig told council.  "The expenditure is fully  justified."  Craig was commenting on the  new computerized.disaster plan being compiled for the Sunshine  Coast, thought to be the first of its  kind in Canada. He noted that the  program plugs the worst possible  gap in any disaster plan: what happens if all the chief people in  charge of the plan are unavailable.  "Virtually anyone with a little  training can punch the right keys  and evolve all the information  needed in an emergency," said  Craig. He also noted that the plan  was very easily updated, and the  new. computer used for it is portable and can be run on batteries.  The new concrete floor is in at  the Sechelt Arena, and has only to  he sealed to be totally completed.  "It looks as if the final cost will  be just under $70,000," Alderman  Graham Craig reported to council.  Ice will be available on October  1, and icemaker Frank Ketter will  start to make it only five days  before that, compared to the three  wijeks it took with a sand floor.  Craig also noted that, from Oc  tober 1, the arena will require year-  round administration services, as it  will be available for summer use as  well.  The village is now ready to pay  out net assets to Class B debenture  holders of the arena, as $10,800  was realized from the sale of curling rocks.  with ja^moderri barbershop wnere  Tussicj Mussie is.

"He  would^ry anything."  In 1971 Wally moved to Vernon  for the sake of the health of his second wife. At the age of 69 one  would think he would take it easy,  but no, he took up work in the orchards, picking fruit and driving  tractors, until his death from  cancer in 1976.  "I think he had unlimited  energy," says Joan. "After a day  of hard work he loved to put  records on the record player and  dance!  "He seemed to be either way  behind or far ahead of his time,"  his daughter muses fondly. "He  sure touched a lot of lives while he  was here." .  With the number of memories  the uncovering of his old sign has  stirred up, it seems Wally Graham  hasn't stopped yet.  Jf  Of B.C. while creating new potential for jobs with the least environmental impact.  Nesbitt noted "Environmentalists are correct when they express their concern about the  fragile environment along the  southern route. The Fraser River  estuary in particular is extremely  sensitive, and the risks of threading  the underwater portion through  the Gulf Islands is unwarranted."  Nesbitt said "The B.C. government's plan to hold in abeyance  any decision on whether a loop-  back to Powell River should be  built, is an indication that Powell  River has been left out in the cold  so far as natural gas is concerned in  the foreseeable future.  No camp fires  The beautiful sunny weather has  been great for boaters and swimmers but has created a high hazard  fire situation in our forests. As of  August 3, the Forestry Service has  placed a complete ban on all camp-  fires.  This means that no open fires  are allowed anywhere in the Sechelt  MForest Service area except in the  two provincial park campgrounds  and in the local private campground. The ban is also in effect  in the marine park.  There are as yet no forest  closures or restrictions applied to  the industrial sector but most of  the logging operators have stopped  on their, own accord.  Mr.   Jim   Gowriluk   of   'fie  Forestry Service is requesting that  anyone using the forests for recreation or leisure use extreme care. "If  the fire rating remains on high for  four consecutive days then it  changes to extreme and this implies  mandatory operation shut downs  and forest closures."  The Forestry Service rely to a  great extent on the reports of  private flights and individual  sightings in controlling fires  although they carry out their own  aerial patrols on occasion. They  have also hired a special patrolman  to enforce the present campfire  ban.  So the keyword is "extreme  care" and for up to date forest fire  conditions call 885-5174.  For Expo year  Salmon plans  An' innovative proposal by  Economic Development Commissioner Oddvin Vedo to have "U  Catchem" pens of salmon  available on the Sunshine Coast for.  tourist fishing in 1986 and beyond  seems on the brink of getting the  go-ahead.  The proposal would see three  local fish farms receive a total of  150,000 extra coho salmon fry to  raise until 1986, at which time the  fish would be between three and  five pounds each. The fish would  then be transferred to enclosed  ponds or special net pens where  people could fish for them, either  from shore, on floats or in boats,  using a special floating line and  small hook baited with a piece of  cork (which would look like a  pellet of fish feed as well as float  the hook) so other fish and the nets  would not get snagged.  Aside from payment for fish  caught (fee would include equipment rental), Vedo sees the potential for sales of photos of  'fishermen with catch', cleaning  services, and the option of trading  in one's catch for a frozen fish of  equal size or half a side of smoked  salmon instead. Bags of fish food  would also be sold so children  could feed the fish and watch them  jump.  The hitch is that, while federal  fisheries has offered 150,000 fry, it  will not pay fish farmers to raise  them. So Vedo has approached the  Expo '86 committee in Vancouver,  which has over 90 coporations interested in sponsoring various projects so they can use the official Expo Jogo on their products and in  their promotion.  The total project would cost  close to $600,000, and "I think  we'll have a sponsor within  weeks," Vedo told the Coast  .News.: "That amount is nothing in  $he- totaT* pfolrnotipn- btklgei^of^a*  brewery, for instanqe,^ if it would  enable the brewery to 'have! a picture of a leaping salmon and the  offical Expo logo on its bottles and  cans during the influx of Expo  visitors and beyond," said Vedo.  Vedo.has been assured that, as.  soon as a sponsor is agreed upon  by federal fisheries officials, the fry  will be delivered to the local fish  farms of Brad Hope, Tom May  and John Slind.  One of the big pluses of the proposal is that, with corporate sponsorship covering all the expenses of  rearing the fish, the profits from  the sale of the fish would be  available for local use. Vedo has  proposed that the proceeds be split  evenly, with half going to salmon  and sports fish enhancement, and  the balance to the Sunshine Coast  Tourism Associatipn to build .a.  tourism infrastructure of such  capital works as, for example, boat  ramps, picnic sites, "perhaps a  theatre", said Vedo.  Vedo had originally been promised 1.5 million extra salmon eggs  for the Sunshine Coast, to be raised and released from local hatcheries in time for fish to return in  1986, after he had pointed out to  federal fisheries the serious drain  on wild fish stocks a large influx of  tourist fishermen could create.  After officially notifying fish  farmers of how many extra eggs  they would be receiving - some  farmers expanded their operations  to handle the increase - fisheries  changed its mind, claiming wild  stocks could be genetically weakened by intermingling with hatchery  fish. M  As compensation for the loss of  the promised eggs, Vedo has now  requested that the first million  coho eggs to become available in  the fall of 1984 come to Sunshine  Coast hatcheries, and accelerating  their growth by using warmer than  usual water at least 600,000 of  them could be one to two pounds  in time to be available for Expo "  ^promotion. The cost of <rearingM  these fish is judged to be  $2,150,000, and Vedo has; re,  quested a corporate sponsor for  this project as well.  Lost election cards  Word has been received that 30 cards which had been left by  federal enumerators at residences where no one was home have  been found in an empty lot in Gibsons. The cards were left in the  Winn Road/South Fletcher Road area, and possibly other areas as  well, and it is suspected that children took them as a prank and  threw them away.  The result is, however, that anyone who was not enumerated in  person and did not subsequently send in the card left will not have  his/her name on the Voters' List and will therefore not be able to  vote in the federal election on September 4.  If such is your situation, please contact the enumerator for your  area as indicated in the notice on page six of this newspaper, so that  your name may be added to the list.  Environment appeal  Public hearings of the Environmental Appeal Board will take  place on August 14, at 9:30 a.m. at Pebbles Restaurant, Driftwood  Inn in Sechelt.  The meeting will discuss the use of the herbicides 2,4-D and  Round-up. All concerned should be present.  Next riding meet  The next Timber Trails Riding Club show will be held this  weekend at the riding arena on Field Road.  Western Day is Saturday, August 11 and English Day is on Sunday, August 12. Activities on both days get underway at 9 a.m.  Judge of the events will be Ms Pam Arthur and the show  manager is Julie Clarke.  Centennial '86  meeting  The Centennial '86 Society will be holding a general meeting on  Thursday, August 9 at 8 p.m.  This meeting will determine the future direction of the society's .  building project. All members are urgently requested to attend, and  new members are welcome.  The meeting will be in the Marine Room, under the Gibsons  Library.  1  g  ���i  Recently nominated federal Liberal candidate Wayne Nesbitt handed out Canadian flags while taking part in the Sea Cavalcade  parade last Saturday. -->���>.���. nurmWfphon. 2.  Coast News, August 6,1984  ��@_w ft. eaitary  An article elsewhere in our paper states that a local Teen  Night "has been canclled due to severe lack of parental participation".  That is a sad commentary on our times.  Teenagers are the "unwanted citizens" of our society in as  much as we have not been able to accommodate them to.our  adult life���much less accommodate ourselves to their spirit of  adventure and exuberance.  Adult society usually comes down hard on adolescents who  because of "strange" dress and fashions or likings for music we  find unacceptable are suspected of all manner of ill-doings.  Could this small local example of an endeavor created to help  teens in their leisure time, failing to find the adult support it  needed to survive���be the reason why there exists a generation  Is it any wonder that adolescents turn inward and to their own  peers for support ahd inspiration? How easy it is for us to decry  the outlandishness of the Boy George's and Annie Lennox's of  teen music. But what are we prepared to offer them instead?  Too often do we demand that youth meet us on our terms.  However, it is unrealistic and hypocritical if we are not prepared  to meet them on theirs.  Ferry layoffs  The news that the B.C. Ferry Corporation is planning more  layoffs is hot unexpected, but that makes it no more acceptable;  Since the election of the present government in 1975 the process of service reduction has been unceasing. Bigger boats, fewer  sailings,' higher prices have constituted the policy of ferry  management. The result has been slumping utilization of the  ferries. At a time when airlines are cutting prices and offering attractive scheduling to attract travellers our ferry corporation  persists in discouraging those it would attract.  "The public won't notice the difference", is the fatuous comment. Perhaps, but those laid off will and so will the hard pressed local economies which depend on the circulation of money in  the communities served by the ferry.  "Why should the rest of B.C. subsidize the ferries?" demands  the same government which in its last budget allocated almost  half a billion dollars to write off the debts, at least the old ones,  of B.C. Rail. Beside that figure the money lost on the coastal  ferries is chicken feed.  The reduction to the absurd of the current policies will see no  deficit, no ferries, and no coastal communities. Hopefully, we  will have a more enlightened government before they succeed in  strangling us entirely.  5 YEARS AGO  Gibsons Sea Cavalcade  Committee blows up a boat  to mark the beginning of Sea  Cavalcade and windows are  blown in from the Bluff to  Grantham's Landing.

McCall photo courtesy of Joan Mahlman  Pornography and censorship  by Michael Burns  Canada's pornography industry  takes in $500 million a year, part of  a North American total gross of  $10 billion for 1983. Kiddie porn  alone accounts for about $2 billion  of the North American share with  an estimated 1.5 million children  involved.  If the size of the business isn't  bad enough to worry you - then the  extent of sadism, violence, cruelty  and dehumanization mostly of  women, but also of men and infants portrayed in easily available  material should make you wince:  Disturbing? You bet! m  Many groups and organizations  have commented about this situation and are attempting to effect  change. The most recent of these is  the United Church of Canada who  in a task force report say that  changing the laws to regulate and  eventually ban pornography is one  part of the solution.  In its preamble the report states'  that social custom and community*  standards are influenced when  enough people demand change;  and it goes on to say "Local variety  stores can't sell magazines in which;  Black or Jewish people are degraded and tortured. Why do we  tolerate such abuse against  women?"  At their thirtieth general council  in Marden, Manitoba, August 7 to  16, church members are being asked to take a firm stand against  pornography by adopting a resolu-  For Election 984  tion which will urge Canada's  minister of justice to amend the  Criminal Code to:  1. Provide a concise and complete definition of pornography;  2. Provide that production,  distribution, rental and leasing of  any pornographic material be an  offense.  The resolution will also encourage members to lobby for the  establishment of a censor board  under strict control of a legal  definition of pornography. Finally  and most interestingly it will encourage members to take group action by demonstrating outside  stores selling pornography.  Let's bring the picture closer to  home. In how many stores in Gibsons and Sechelt can you or I or  our kids buy pornography? The  drugstores? The variety stores?  Any store that sells books or  magazines?  Most importantly, what is pornography? It it how much is  shown? How it's shown? What's  happening while it'sf-bemg shown?  Is Playboy okay - but not Hustler?  What's the difference between  legitimate sexual explicitness in a  novel and exploitative sex? When  does the merely erotic become  criminally pornographic?  These questions and the opinions they elicit are the reasons  legislators shy away from the problems. In a society where rapid  change and social evolution are  reflected in public mores which are  in a state of flux, it is difficult to  define what is acceptable. North  American deomocr'acy with its inherent pluralism create perceptions  where one person's sense of propriety may be offended by what is  perfectly normal to another.  There are instances in some  Canadian school districts where  wonderful books such as Salinger's  "Catcher in the Rye" and  Margaret Laurence's "The  Diviners" are banned. Canadian  book retailers are very leary pf increased interest in censorship and  in September they are promoting a  national week of censorship  awareness.  If we are going to do justice to  the complexity of people's interest  and involvement with pornography, we're going to have to  examine this more carefully and I'd  rather ask these questions.  What in our society makes individuals greedy to the point that  the objectives of material wealth  and associated power and status  render honorable any means to obtain it? To what extent does the  competitive spirit fostered by our  economic and educational institutions lend themselves to legitimizing exploitation? How does the  technological dehumanization bf  individuals carry over to other  areas?  Why have personal lives and  relationships become jaded to the  point where many seek out the sensational and the violent? And finally, does the fact that we have  forgotten how Mo celebrate life,  spiritually and sensuously, individually and collectively make it  easier for us to accept cheap  substitutes?  It's true these are involved questions that will take time to ponder  and resolve. They won't get the  garbage off the stores shelves - and  yes there is garbage there.  But censorship is not the answer.  It's only a band-aid approach. It  may clear the shelves for awhile,  but don't kid yourselves, the root  causes which created the problem  in the first place will remain and  will show up somewhere else.  We don't have time to get at the  root causes? I disagree. We are living through an era which is the  culmination of band-aid approaches to economic and social  problem solving; all of which have  only bought us little spurts of time.  But the complexity and pervasiveness of what ails us requires  that we cease using this piecemeal  application of our intelligence.  The final irisulfSf censorship is  that it negates individual responsibility-m shaping'one's life and  this belief and dependence on professionals and experts to decide  things for us has done us much  harm and contributed greatly to  making life more meaningless.  Using censorship to deal with  pornography is like treating a brain  tumor with aspirins. It may make  you feel good for awhile, but...!  That's my opinion. What do you  think?  Eight-point economic program  by Tarn Johnson  1. Interest rates are the key .to  reducing the unemployment from  the 1.3 million level. The major:  reason for increasing rates has been  the value of the Canadian dollar  relative to the U.S. dollar. The  relative values of all currencies in  the work! are determined by the  buying and.selling transactions in  the international money market.  To make the Canadian dollar sell  higher, relative to the U.S. dollar,  all Canadians must be made aware,  on a day-to-day basis, of precisely  how they may influence money  market transactions.  To do this the Canadian government will inform Canadians of  those imports which are purchased  with deliberately over-valued U.S.  dollars and of the alternatives  which may be purchased with other  undervalued currencies. This will  be done for all sectors of the  economy: consumers, services,  retailers, wholesalers,, farmers,  military and government and  manufacturers.  The same advertising program  will continuously inform Canadians, in all sectors, of potential  export markets in the world, and  actively assist Canadians to sell in  these markets. This will include  foreign advertising especially in the  U.S.A. At the same time the Canadian government will actively pursue investment from foreign  sources which does not have  ownership strings, attached.  The budget for this program will  be obtained by directing to it the  present 150 million dollar budget  being   misspent   by   the   deputy  ministers on idiot level advertising.  2. On a longer term Dasis tne  dual banking system will be consolidated in Canada. The present  near banks; credit unions, trust  companies, etc. will be controlled  regionally by five regional central <  banks established by the provinces  and co-ordinated by the federal ,  government.  The objective of this banking  system will be the continous  stimulation of new housing starts  and all forms of construction as  well as the higher risk small  business stimulation. A totally new  concept of value added mortgaging  will attract long term investment to  the regional banking system at  stable but lower than present interest rates. '  3. In order to prepare Canadian  youth and others to fit into the  rapidly shifting demands of the  modern economy our Canadian  educational system at all levels will  be guided, solely in respect to curriculum and availability, by five  newly established regional education foundations. Equal representation on each foundation will be  obtained from the three levels of  government, the two levels of  education and the three levels of  the private sector.  Existing federal and provincial  agencies who give away public  money for non co-ordinated and  misguided pursuits will be dispensed with and existing budgets will be  directed to and used by the foundations to pursue educational  guidance and stimulation synchronized and fitted to the demands  of the modern world. This will include pure research. The federal  government representatives will be  responsible for national and international co-ordination.  4.The Canadian energy policy  has thrown billions of dollars into  Arctic and Atlantic shelf exploration as the answer to our long  range energy problems. Other than ,  the hydrogen solution which, in  reality, was a nuclear solution,  Canada at this time has no alternatives. Unfortunately the shelf exploration has. . not discovered  significant new reserves for  Canada. Based on present rates of  usage our light oil reserves will be  largely depleted in 10 to 15 years.  Coal and heavy oil could carry us  for   another   few   decades   but  eliminating pollution hazards with  these fossil fuels is very costly and  difficult.  The only pollution-free, long-  range solution for the assurance of  liquid fuels is agriculturally grown  ethanols and gasoline-like fuels  catalyzed from them. At the same  time one of the few long-range  labor intensive solutions to  Canada's long term chronic  unemployment would be small  energy farms. The desired productivity would be achieved by intensive methods resulting in  multicropping and very high yields  of such crops as potatoes, corn,  sunflowers and artichokes.  As a long range energy policy,  oil exploration would continue but  on a much more scientific basis  than was used to waste our many  billions in the Arctic. At the same  time Canada in conjunction with  the oil companies would phase in a  gradually increasing mix of ethanol  with our gasoline. This would  create an assured market for the  energy fanners.  The research would be accelerated to enable ethanol to be  catalyzed into butanes and octanes  so that compatability of mixing  would be no problem. No new funding is required for this program.  In fact the existing budget for exploration may be trimmed by placing more emphasis on scientific exploration and less on expensive  wild catting.  5. In order to gain control of the  federal spending a system of zero  based departmental budgeting will  become law. Each deputy minister  will be responsible for justifying all  aspects of his expenditures each  year. No across the board percentage increases in budgets will be  permitted. All large capital expenditures and other increases will require cost-saving justification and  these will be followed up by the  auditor general and by parliamentary committee.  The treasury board will be  dispensed   with   and   deputy  ministers will be held fully responsible for departmental efficiency  and productivity and for working  towards the welfare of the Canadian public.

D��ct��rfs lack ��I seitslt ivity elsaifge  Editor's  Note:  A copy of the  following letter was received for  publication.  James G. Lugsdin, M.D.,M.Sc.��  ; Director & Medical Health Officer  Coast Garibaldi Health Unit  Gibsons, B.C.  'Dear Sir:  This letter is in response to your  letter to the editor of the Coast  News regarding the use of her-  ���bicides.  You may have been following  -the dialogue with regard to the use  ; of herbicides with interest but it ap-  ; pears to me your interest doesn't  go deep enough to fully investigate  the issue. I'm appalled at your lack  of sensitivity to the issue.  The issues of lack of exercise;  smoking, alcohol and drug abuse  plus the others you mentioned, are  certainly valid issues but not issues  to be included in a dialogue on the  use bf herbicides.  . In my eyes, what you have implied in your letter is this; the possible risks of herbicide application  such as cancer and birth defects to  name just two, are insignificant in  the light of the so-called economic  benefit we may receive from our  "enhanced forests". Benefits that  we receive, Dr. Lugsdin, or  benefits that MacMillan Bloedel  receive?  Having suffered the loss of my  first baby and having been told by  experts in the field of genetics that  the fatal defect could have been  caused by environmental factors, I v  fail to see how the "benefit of this  herbicide application outweighs the  risk" to quote you, Dr. Lugsdin.  You may believe the pro-  herbicide propaganda all you wish,  but don't you daire imply the death  of an infant, a handicapped child,  cancer or any number of other  health risks are insignificant.  It is my opinion that the current  government is capable of  unscrupulous actions, and lying  about the "safety" of herbicides  may be one of them. I urge you to  attend meetings, gather further information, and question the dictates from above before deciding  how significant or insignificant this  issue really is.  Elizabeth H. Boyte &  D. Bruce Gibsons  Gibsons, B.C.  Trusting professionals disastrous  : Editor:  I am responding to a letter that  ; appeared in your paper written by  ; Dr. Lugsdin, the medical health of-  ; ficer for this area, regarding 2,4-D,  jogging and smoking.  lam appalled that a man with  ;his responsibility would take the  Mime to write such trivia under his  official title. I must assume that he  wrote this during business hours  and at the taxpayer's expense.  First he makes the point that we  should trust the professionals. If  they say a little 2,4-D is good for us  we should believe them. However,  in a day when professional ethics  have all too frequendy been replaced by the profit principle, to blindly trust would require blatant  stupidity or a total lack of caring.  Next, following his own advice  of trust he claims that these professionals would not place these  poisons where people would be affected. Well my creek from which I  draw my water runs right through  the area to be poisoned approximately 600 feet upstream. It is my  understanding that 2,4-D will not  break down in this distance. I  would therefore have to assume  that these "professionals" would  not concern themselves with  whether people will be affected.  Finally Dr. Lugsdin, whose job  is to provide our community with  professional, preventitive medical  advice and assistance, has totally  negated the hazards of 2,4-D  despite overwhelming evidence that  it is a serious health threat.  When our community first  became aware of the possibility  that our waters may become contaminated by this material I had  considered turning to the public  health office for assistance. I am  glad now that I didn't.  Using his logic, I wonder if our  community was threatened, by an  outbreak of smallpox Dr.  Lugsdin's response might be that  we should not concern ourselves  with that because polio is just as  serious a health threat.  I suggest that using 2,4-D in  areas that a community's drinking  water comes from is a serious community health hazard, and I would  call on our medical health officer  to provide us with support and  assistance in our fight to prevent  future health problems and birth  defects.  M.B. Bulmer  Cynicism destructive to human spirit  Editor:  One day during the war years, I  stopped at a "Beer Saloon" in  Bayonne, N.J.. on business. Being  late afternoon, the local workmen  were gathering at the bar when a  ragged creature, presumably  female, appeared and walked slowly murmuring something about a  "drink" while wetting the floor,  provoking laughter among those  unthinking spectators.  No doubt this inhuman spectacle  was once a cute little baby, perhaps  admired by passersby. What is  wrong with life when an innocent  baby evolves into a monstrous  derelict? A good question to  ponder over time and again,  especially when observing humani  ty on skid road...in your own in-  virons.  I, for one, see a connection between such wastage of human life  and those over-ambitious zealots,  blinded by the lure of gold, impervious to the plight of those that fall  by the wayside. A breed so completely insensitive to the suffering  of its fellowman as exemplified, for  example, by Reagan's withholding  funds allocated for the relief of  40,000 homeless in N.Y. City alone  while enjoying multiple luxury  dwellings for himself; or Thatcher  and her ilk who look upon their  country as something to be milked;  and Bennett, who finds it a sporting pastime to emulate his mentors  in Washington and London.  These subhumans, impelled by  greed, pay no heed to the cries for  help that come from the bosom of  humanity.  Breaking the spirit of the people  through enforced unemployment  and curtailment of social assistance  is not enough for these cynics. In  anticipation of popular retribution  - which' is inexorably drawing  nearer, as ordained by the logic  and direction of human evolution  -they are frantically plotting a war  that has no parallel, and senselessly  piling armaments many times that  considered "necessary" for total  annihilation, displaying such panic  as bordering on the grotesque.  Though they may not succeed in  pushing the world over the brink, it  still remains for us to muster  enough determination to collectively rise in indignation against these  usurpers and drive, them into the  sea as the only effective way of ending this scourge.

Bennett  Parliament Buildings  506 Government Street  Victoria,'B.C: V8V 4R3  Dear Premier Bennett:  You did not reply to our letter of  May 15,1984. One month later, we  gave two weeks notice of our intention to replace the nuclear free  zone sign in the hopes that it might  move you to respond or at least,  cause your government to rethink  why it was taking down the sign.  With no response from you, the  sign went up June 29. On July 4,  once again the departmem: of  highways was instructed to take  down the sign.  A government loses credibility  and the confidence of the people  when it. betrays them���when it  gives words of encouragement and  support to the peace movement  and then executes policy that  thwarts the efforts of peace  groups," thereby contributing to the  increased buildup of nuclear  weapons. We appeal to you to respond to our request that you back  your words to the April 28 Peace  Walk and allow the designatory  signs of nuclear free zones, or explain what appears to us to be a  serious contradiction between your'  words   and   your   government's  policy.  It has been over two months  since we first appealed to you. May  we please have the courtesy of a  reply.     . M m . .

Dear Mr. Lugsdin, M.D., M. Sc.,  As a taxpayer I am appalled by  your  callous  statements  in  the  Coast News July 16.  A person in your position should  be one of the first and foremost to  oppose any and all use of any toxic  substances. Besides being a danger  to the environment, it is  economically irresponsible as long  as these are persons out of work.  Your confusing of the issue is an  old   tactic   of   any  government  branch here in B.C. Personally I  do not think it is any of your  business whether we smoke, drink  or do drugs, or how we eat or  drive.  Your position as a public servant  would be better served by one who  would, if not actively opposed to  the use of herbicides (for which  there is not even an economic excuse), at least would be less likely  to insult the people's integrity and  wishes to live in a poison free environment.

Gunnar Asikainen, Denturist  Accuracy requested  Editor:  I am pleased that you published  my open letter to MP's. However,  in all fairness, you should inform  the readers that the letter contained  an eight point program which you  left out.  None of the political parties are  outlining a program that gives  much encouragement to the  unemployed. My platform at least  proposed some positive action, in  which all Canadians could participate, that could lead to considerable employment. .  I believe a condensed version of  the platform would permit your  readers to request positive action'  from aspiring MP's.  Tarn Johnson  Gibsons, B.C.  Editor's Note: See page two.

A BLAZE IN THE BAY
Spectators gathered along the
beach on Redrooffs to watch the
spectacular fire on the -water on
Wednesday night; A 22-foot Grew
caught fire where it was anchored
quite close to the shore and it burned almost tp the waterline.
A B.C. Hydro barge docked at
the Halfmoon Bay wharf came to
the rescue and set hoses on Mhe
blaze but, were unable to save the
boat which belonged to Wendy
MacDonald of the Castaway. The
Halfmoon Bay Fire Department
was promptly on the scene too but
were unable to control the blaze.
PIONEERS LUNCHEON
A . luncheon to honour. the
pioneers of Halfmoon Bay is being
given by the Welcome Beach Community Association on Wednesday, August 15 at 12:30. Members
should be sure to make application
early for tickets which are being
sold at a special rate of $2.50.
Numbers are limited and the
lady to call for reservations in
Mary Shannon at 885-9765. This is
usually a delightful afternoon \
where old friends get together to
visit and to catch up with the
whereabouts of former neighbours
some of whom have moved either
to the mainland or to Sechelt.

KATIMAVIK
The Katimavik group in Gibsons
that is just finishing its program of
nine months tackled the Powell
River Forest Canoe route last week
as its wilderness experience. In
their four days of paddle and portage the young folks found the
greatest hardship was to find room
in the campsites. "Many using the
route were.from Europe," said one
of the Katimavik's, "and they said
there was nothing like this at
home."
ppened just over a year ago the
route is a joint effort of the Powell
River Chamber of Commerce and
the B.C. Forest Service. The route
connects eight lakes, 50 kilometres
paddling and eight of portaging.'

about six days food. And being
green we ended up on the trail with
one pocket knife and two cooking
pots for the 11 of us. The long pull,
about half the trip, on Powell Lake
was pretty demanding," a member
said.
BROTHERS PARK "BUBBLE",
Concrete floor and anchor wall
are ready for the plastic bubble in
Brothers Park on Park Road, and
when all is ready will provide a
roller rink among other programs.
About 1958-59 on a site where
the propane tank now stands in the
Sunnycrest parking lot, an outdoor
concrete slab was laid and used for
two seasons. Metal wheeled skates
. arid concrete were not a good combination and the project lost its appeal to the young public.
In 1969 public roller skating was
organized by a group of public-
spirited citizens to use secondary
school gyms in Gibsons and
Pender Harbour. Teaching- staff
opposed the using of the gyms
fearing damage to the hardwood
floors. "But no one could ever
point to a single dent or scratch
caused by our plastic-wheeled -
skates," says one of the group,
"and we continued providing this'
service until the time in the early
70's when the school was burned,
and all our equipment with it."
"By that time," says Ray
Chamberlin, "our equipment,,
skates and sound system, was paid
for and our bank loan cleared."
He added, "We figure that the
volunteer system is still the only
way to have many of the recreational facilities run in the community."
When asked about the hundreds
of hours put in by the group—Ray
Chamberlin, Bud Laird, Jack
Warn, Elaine Miles (McLean), and
a Mr. Hewitt of Sechelt—he said
they all thought it was worth the
arguments-with the schools, the
loading and unloading of equip- '
ment, and providing strict control
of the skating floor.
When asked about this new
roller project, he said, "A concrete
floor is slow. It really needs a vinyl
covering."
The flagpole and bronze plaque,
by the way, that have been remov
ed from this site marked the
culmination of a centennial project
in the district when Brothers Park
was still part of the provincial
parks branch. The bronze plaque is
in storage and it is expected that
another site will immediately be.
chosen by the town to display the
plaque in some suitable way.
CONGRATULATIONS
A short note of appreciation to
Georgina Cameron, the cor
ordinator of the Queen contest for
Sea Cavalcade, for a splendid pro-
ject happily completed.
Remembering her experience of six
years ago as second princess, she
was determined the 1984 contest be
a fun time for the candidates. And
by all reports it was, indeed. Congratulations, Georgina.
ODDS & ENDS
One outstanding observation on
a recent excursion to Britain and
Europe: the friendly, helpful attitude of the people there as they
gladly shared their recreational
amenities with us open-mouthed
foreigners.
And my friend Norman observes
that now the church congregation
in Vancouver has supinely welcomed the ladies of the street to stay in
the building, they could now expect the ladies to welcome church
groups to stand with them on their
street corners.
Platform
Continued from page 2
8. A weekly conference will be
held consisting of the premiers, the
members of the inner cabinet, the
prime minister and at applicable
times, mayors and private sector
leaders. The conference will be
conducted using close-circuit
television so that no travelling will
be necessary.
The objective of the conference
will be the smooth implementation
of the above platform and the
regaining of mutual respect and
confidence among Canada's
leaders so that our elected
representatives and others at all
levels may work together towards
the betterment of our nation.
I submit this platform for the
consideration of all thinking Canadians.

__ Insect Bites
Insect bites have been very common during the last few
weeks. Non prescription medications are of little use in severe
reactions. A doctor must treat .these people as swelling may
constrict breathing passages. However, for most people insects
bites usually result in local pain, swelling and itchiness.
For bee stings apply ice to the affected area to slbw'the absorption of venom and reduce itching and pain. Remove the
stinger with tweezers. Apply an antispectic afterwards.
In the case of bites by mosquitoes, fleas and flies antihistamines and local anesthetic creams and lotion may be applied. However, these products can actually cause an allergic
reaction themselves and should not be used excessively.
Calamine lotion, camphor or menthol may relieve or prevent
these symptoms as well. Antihistamines may be taken internally
to relieve itchiness, however, they take a while to work and
usually by just avoiding'scratching the situation will improve.

Thanks to "Used Guys"; Hahle,  Jane, and Carol; Bob Carpenter;  David Morgan and his band  "Raign"; Nikki Weber's  "G.G.'s"; Armon Wold; and  especially to Ken Dalgleish for  always being there for the Creek.  Many thanks to Brace Forsythe  for giving so much time to provide  light and sound for the evening  festivities.  A skyful of balloons to "Mr.  D." for making hundreds of kids  happy clowning around with  balloons.  Thank you to the great cake  bakers. ��� Anne McKay took first  place for her delicious Black Forest  cake. Second went to Trish "the  Dish" for her Creek-famous three-  layer chocolate cake. Randi  Morgan won first for her super icing.  Other names may not have been  mentioned but the Daze Committee wants you people to know that  your help, time and talents are  much appreciated.  ENTERTAINMENT COMING  The Roberts Creek Legion has  entertainment this weekend with  "Slim Pickins". Denny says they  have some new numbers, including  several written by band member  Doug Topper. .  They'll by playing both Friday  and Saturday so come in for at  least one of the evenings. Members  and guests only.   ��� .  After the successful 50's night in  June, the auxiliary ladies are planning a Hard Times Dance for  August 25. "Used Guys" will be  playing if they find a drummer by  then. I just can't decide whether  my everyday rags are appropriate  or I'll have to go to the thrift store.  And Nikki Weber's "G.G.'s"  are coming back, possibly August  31. Watch this column for confirmation.  NO TEEN NIGHT  Boo to the parents who don't  care enough to help give their kids  something to do. Teen Night at the  Community Hall on Wednesdays  has been cancelled due to severe  lack of parental participation.  Perhaps people don't realize  how much kids too young to drive  need a place to get together and  have a good time. We just don't  have the facilities or public  transportation that larger centres  have to keep the kids off the  streets.  The Tuesday night Teen Nights  at the Roberts Creek Legion last  winter were such a success that kids  from Gibsons came to get in on the  good time. But there was always  lots of parental supervision in case.,  it was needed. Debbie Osier work-'  ed hard to get a summertime program going for other people's kids  but she didn't get the parental support she needed. Trouble is, it's the  kids who lose out.  PORT MELLON GIFT  Hooray for the Port Mellon  Community Association! Apparently they lost their community  hall because the mill needed it. So  the association gave their collection  of decorations for all occasions to  the Roberts Creek Community  Association. A lot of them were  homemade and very special and '  there's everything from shamrocks  to spooks.  They're also giving Roberts  Creek their trampoline which the  association hopes to put in the  school for use by the community  when wanted. A, very handsome  gift and much appreciated. Thank  you, Port Mellon. Do come and  visit!  ANY SPARES?  The Roberts Creek Community  Association is looking for a toilet  for the men's bathroom in the hall.  If you have a spare that works  please, call Debbie Osier at  886-3994 or Diane Zornes at  886-2087.

Works by local painters,  sculptors, photographers, and  other artists will be on display and  the restaurant will be open at different hours of the day.

SPRINKLING RESTRICTIONS  We're really hot and dry folks.  I'm not complaining about the  weather although it means the  garden sucks up water even more.  It's important to adhere to sprinkling restrictions in the South Pender  Water Works District and if you  hear the fire sirens in Garden Bay  or Madeira Park, please shut  everything off right away.  TENNIS.  Ron Knight, our excellent tennis  instructor, has turned in the final  results of Pender Harbour's Pepsi  Wilson Minor Tennis League  season. To begin with he'd like to  thank. Joan at Centre Hardware  for making registration so easy,  Continuing Ed for supporting the  program,, and Harry Munro for  keeping the grass cut so looking for  errant balls was easier.  In total there were 34 kids in  four classes. This year for the first  time in Pender, there was a novice  level. That means our kids are learning and progressing at the game.  Next year we'll have Novice Two  level. We also had our first class of  four to six year old learning preterm's co-ordination skills. Here  are the names of all those who  received the Tennis Canada Performance Awards. This means  they are on a par- with the rest of  Canada at their levels.  BEGINNERS: R. Wilson, S.  Wilson, J. Jones, N. Gough, B.  Cotter, A. curtiss, R. Stickley,  K.L. Close, K. Close. NOVICE:  M. Stickley, C. Pollock, R. Cotter,  G. Knight, J. Fletcher.  Also, quite a few adults took  lessons for the first time. Now they  can play a decent game.

Lee Bay resident Penny Bokus beats the heat with style in a scenic  setting even with her foot in a cast! ���*-e Meou*�� photo  Successful Fair  _���������������������_���������_���-������B__B__0���������__���_  Bay appreciation  The committee for the Country  Faire of Halfmoon Bay extend very  special thanks to the many people  who helped. The community involvement was fantastic, people  contributing funds, groups and individuals their time and expertise.  Plans for a baking contest were  quickly changed when it was learned Robin Hood Flour was  celebrating their seventy-fifth anniversary with a Sherwood  chocolate cake contest and  cookiegram. Little hamlets across  Canada completed in their areas  then provincially and finally across  Canada With the top winner going  to Sherwood Forest.  Thus the fair became, "The  Country Faire of Halfmoon Bay  Featuring Robin Hood Day in the  Forest of Connor Park", probably  the longest title ever.  SaturdaV, July 21 was the day  and a wonderful sunny day it was.  Master of Ceremonies was to be  Bob Clothier but he had warned  that he may have to work that day  as "Relic!" for the Beachcomber  series. Unfortunately he did and so  yours truly was the MC. Imagine  being a stand-in for Relic.  Miss Halfmoon Bay, Sheila  Needham, graciously opened the  fair. Taking part was the White  Tower Medieval Society of Gibsons who did several fine performances, including an archery  display, a tax collector scene and  some jousting over a stream.  Ten bales of straw provided for  archery by Harry Jacobson of  Buckerfield's Feed in West Sechelt.  Halfmoon Bay Volunteer Fire  Department had their truck on  display, called out for a false alarm  but displayed their quick actions.  They also filled gallons of water for  the jousting stream. Frank Jorgen-  son dug the hole with his backhoe.  Welcome Beach Community  president Bill Vorley ran the bingo.  The village of Sechelt lent their  P.A. system and B.C. Telephone  the generator to run it. B.C. Hydro  put up the sign over Redrooffs  Road. Sunshine Coast Disposal  Unit provided the garbage container and pickup. The public were  tidy with their papers.  The Halfmoon Bay Recreational  Association of which this committee is a part of supported in many  ways. Steve Feenstra, chairman,  looked after the Volleyball Tournament. Sunshine Coast Credit  Union Trophy winners were the  recreation group. His wife, Carole,  was in charge of the trophy run  sponsored by ICG Propane in  Sechelt for the men's trophy. Wendy MacDonald looked after the  ladies' trophy.  Kelly and Diane  Foley, Warren and Barbara James,  Midge Nanson, Mark Kozij, Doug  Wood were a few of the members  very active at the fair.  Fitting music for the day was  played by the Strolling Hat Band.  Don Bouman, Cindy Kirk, Lisa  Light and Katie Angermeyer  played such instruments as a  bohran, penny whistle, guitar,  violin and concertina playing gaelic  music.  The committee who did the  planning were also busy at the fair.  Carol Kozij, in charge of publicity,  was also in charge of the Robin  Hood Cake Contest. Judges were  Lenore Rudland who has done a  lot of fair judging in the Fort  Fraser area and Michele Chapman,  dietician at St. Mary's Hospital.  Both ladies were very meticulous in  their juding of the cakes and  cookiegrams numbered for  secrecy. Robin Hood Flour provided the prizes and promotion  material.  Fiona West and husband Al ran  the Beer Garden, where many enjoyed a shady spot for meeting  friends and conversing.  Bunty Pinkerton, treasurer and  lady in charge of raffle tickets,  helped by Dena Stoker and Els  Mercer judged contestants in the  Century 21 Smile contest.  Phyllis Winton donated two  mugs, one for adults and one for  children. Alma Gladstone and  Peggy Ayer handled the knitting  contest with special pins provided  by Yvette Kent, the prize of a knitting case and 10 pairs of needles  came from Sew Easy. Katie Hayter  took over the feeding of our entertainers, aided by a donated ham  from Fletcher's and her helpers  B & J Store donated ice cream  for the kids. Other sponsors not  mentioned above were: Car-Lynn  Catering, Milore Nursery, Mitten  Realty, Morgan's Men's Wear,  Sechelt Barber, Fin Anthony,  Work Wear World, Cornwell Mill,  Harry Pinkerton, Fiona West,  Pharmasave, Gene Rufer, FAB  Logging, Headquarters, Old Fort  Beer, Wakefield Tennis Club.  The fair ended with a dance at  the Welcome Beach Hall where the  rest of the cakes were auctioned  off. The top price went as high as  $9.50. Larry Reardon was promotion manager and bagman.  All of the many people who  helped have not been mentioned  here but they are recorded by the  committee and they will be happy  to know that their contribution  was appreciated and helped make  the fair the big success it was.  Thanks to all who came and enjoyed.  by Ann Cook, 883-9167  Goodbye, July, I enjoyed having  you, come again next year.  PENDER HARBOUR DELIGHT  I took a little break from Egmont and went to a dance put on  by the Pender Harbour Lions  Club.  What fun! I'm sorry you missed  it. A not too large but enthusiastic  crowd was there. You couldn't  help but pick up good happy vibes  and join in the fun.  Pegasus played music to suit,  and even I tried the Butterfly  dance. There was lots of good  food, two friendly bartenders, spot  dances and other prizes to add to  the evening's entertainment. It was  one of these evenings I was going  out.for a couple of hours and  before I knew it they were annouc-  ning the home waltz.  BOOMING BUSINESS  The Egmont Mini Thrift Store  did so well in July it will be open  every day in August from approximately noon to 3 p.m.  The prices are so good you will  have to work at spending $5, and  remember if you are not satisfied  we will refund your money with a  smile. Besides clothing there is a  good selection of books and some,  plants.  I was going to write about the  beautiful African Violets that  Gwen Colby keeps the store supplied with but we're all sold out.  HAPPY LEO BIRTHDAYS  Iris Kushner, Nick Wallace,  Norma Martin, Brian Campo,  Warren Clay, Jackie Laloge,  Kathleen and her twin brother  Daniel White.  Wanda Jeffries joins the pub  crowd on August 12 to celebrate  her nineteenth.  Fun at the Backeddy this Thursday, Friday and Sunday when the  Powell River Music Man shows up  for lots of dancing and musical  trivia.  Sechelt  Seniors  by Robert Foxall  If you would like to see and hear  a "hive of industry" call into "our  hall" where the arts and craft  group are making pom-poms. I  was driving by two mornings ago  when I noticed quite a large .  number of autbs parked near and-  around the hall so curiosity caused  me to stop and see what was happening.  I found about 24 members  seated at some of our long tables  each one performing a particular  part, of the task of making pompoms. Above all the activity was  the hum of conversation, which is  why I make reference to a "hive".  My main objective in writing this  weekend is to rernind the membership of our summer picnic to be  held at the provincial park,, Porpoise Bay on Thursday, August 16.  If you need transportation be at  our hall by 11:45 a.m. and we will  have cars available.  By the time this is in print you  will have received a telephone call  advising you what to bring. In the  unlikely event that it should be wet  we will hold the picnic in the hall so  rain or shine we will see you at the  picnic.

Winner  #206  Peggy Elgar  >xW~  / **���<&  Always looking for a topic of interest, I have before me a  real dandy! It is a copy of the very new booklet "The  Beachcombers. Gibsons, British Columbia", written up by  Vene Parnell and published by the Chamber of Commerce.  The booklet is in a high-gloss finish containing 23 beautiful  pages of beachcomber scenes and characters. Vene gives us,  in brief, the background and success of every character, as  well as pictures and story of the very beginning of Gibsons  and Molly's Reach. It sells for $2.95 and should be of interest  as a keepsake or gift to a great many people of the entire  Sunshine Coast. It has to be seen and read to appreciate its  worth.  In the years, since 1971, that the CBC discovered Molly's  Reach, the Beachcomber series has expanded and maintained  its excellent quality as a family show. The booklet tells us  that it is viewed by two million Canadians every week, and is  now seen in 35 different countries around the world.  Vene gives us an interesting insight into the production  end, and the number of people employed behind the scenes.  As a businessman I know full well that the CBC and crew  mean a great deal to the economy of this town. They, as individuals have also contributed much to the arts in our community.  As I come to the last page, entitled acknowlegements, I fail  to see the name Ken's Lucky Dollar Foods. If I turned them  down, I now regret it. To make amends we will donate our  10% commission for handling to the Chamber of Commerce  who do need funds for other worthwhile projects and we  hope we sell lots and lots of these booklets.  , $50 GriteBry Draw Winner;  IGUISO-TO]  IFISHI  MARKET!

Peter Trower  Quiet contemplation and animated conversation were both part of  t$e pleasure of celebrating the Arts Centre's 5th Birthday Party last  Saturday.' ���Fran Btirnsicfc pholo  Reflections on writing  A Dedication to the participants and guests of the Written Arts  Festival.  Writing, like life itself, is a voyage of discovery. The adventure is  a metaphysical one: it is a way of approaching life indirectly, of acquiring a total rather than a partial view of the universe. The writer  i lives between the upper and lower worlds: he takes the path in order  eventually to become that path himself.  I began in absolute chaos and darkness, in a bog or swamp of  ideas and emotions and experiences. Even now I do not consider  myself a writer, in the ordinary sense of the word. I am a man telling the story of his life, a process which appears more and more inexhaustible as I go on. Like the world-evolution, it is endless. It is a  turning inside out, a voyaging through X dimensions, with the  result that somewhere along the way one discovers that what one  has to tell is not nearly so important as the telling itself. It is this  quality about all art which gives it a metaphysical hue, which lifts it  out of time and space and centers or integrates it to the whole  cosmic process. It is this about art which is "therapeutic":  significance, purposelessness, infinitude.  From the very beginning almost I was deeply aware that there is  no goal, I never hope to embrace the whole, but merely to give in  ' each separate fragment, each work, the feeling of the whole as I go  on, because I am digging deeper and deeper into life, digging deeper  and deeper into past and future. With, the endless burrowing a certitude develops which is greater than faith or belief. I become more  and more indifferent to my fate, as writer, and more and more certain of my destiny as man.

The early ��� part of the drive is  through . farming country, very  similar to the Ontario countryside.  Then the farms peter out and we  hit a long, heavily-wooded and  largely uninhabited stretch. The  fiery fall maples are every bit as  spectacular as their Canadian  counterparts.  Eventually we arrive at the  Straits of Mackinac that separate  lower and upper Michigan,  traverse a long, narrow bridge and  enter an area of which neither of us  had any previous inkling.  Over a long and lowslung bridge  that spiders the strait between  Great Lakes  in windy Upper Michigan  we cross the threshhold of  Pasty Land.

Most of these men and  women are not aware that Seton  only wanted to be a naturalist and  an artist. And fewer know that it  was Seton who originated the Boy  Scouts with his "League of the  Woodcraft Indians" and that  Robert Baden-Powell simply took  over his idea and militarized it!  Betty Keller has written a provocative biography of this  egotistical, pompous and intensely  ambitious man; it will be released  by Douglas and Mclntyre  Publishing in late September.  Already it has been claimed by the  Book-of-the Month Club as one of  its 1985 selections.  Qn Sunday evening, August 12,  Ernest Thompson Seton comes to  life again as local actor Gordon  Wilson tells his stories and reads  from his journals, while Judith  Wilson reads from the books and  letters of his wife, the travel writer  and determined feminist, Grace  Gallatin Seton.

That's Sunday. at  7:30 at the Arts Centre.  Brian Fawcett, poet and short  story writer, will be reading from  his work and talking about writing  at 8 at Saturday morning, August-  11. Fawcett wrdte mostly poetry  until three years ago but turned to  short story writing to reach a larger  audience; "Unless you're making a  whole lot of money teaching at a  university���which   I'm ndt���yotr  can forget about writing poetry.  There's just no audience for it.  There's   far   too   much   poetry  writing in this country, anyhow.  And it's too easy to get a book of  poetry published. I propose a 10  year   moratorium   on   poetry  publishing, just leaving the poetry  journals   to   publish   works-in-  progress. Then in 10 years, all the  poetry   that   writers   had   been  polishing and polishing could be  published and we'd really have  some poetry!"  The Coast News is represented at  the Festival of the Written Arts  with "Psych Yourself In: Hypnosis  and Health" by West Vancouver  doctor, Marlene E. Hunter, who  uses hypnosis in her medical practice. The Coast News typeset this  book and did the layout with the  help of members of the Writers'  Forge who were learning the  techniques to prepare for production of their next, volume of  "Sparks from the Forge", the  result of their current contest.

When it comes to writing for the  American market, ask Edith Iglauer - she should know. Born ah  American, she was educated at  Wellesley College and Columbia  University and wrote for such  prestigious magazines as The  Christian Science Monitor. During  World War II she worked for the  Office of War Information in  Washington and was a war correspondent for the Cleveland  News.    /  Ms Iglauer's attention turned to  Canada - especially the Canadian  North where she was prompted to  .     write two separate books; The New  /People - The Eskimo's Journey In-  / to Our Time (1966) and Denison's  Ice Road (1975).  Admitting that her fellow  Americans have little literary interest in our country, Edith Iglauer  finds Canada fascinating../'ahead  of the United States in such matters as health...and surprisingly  behind - almost carelessly so - in  the area of human rights".  Ms Iglauer moved to Vancouver  in 1973, and then eventually to  Garden Bay. She will be a guest  speaker at the Festival of the Written Arts Saturday, August 11  where she will address such con-  cerns as writing for the American  market, researching material and  making the big decisions about  contracts and literary agents.  ���AT THE CEDARS'  Thru.

Now is time to  'finish planting fall crops of various  kinds.  : Fill up the empty spaces with  kale and kohlrabi, beets, carrots,  bush beans, perhaps even a crop of  peas. You may also plant radishes  and lettuce, broccoli, cauliflower,  endive and spinach.  Make sure you check the times ;  of maturity on the seed packages,  it's hard to accurately predict the  'time of the first frost but it usually  occurs towards mid-October, leaving us 70 to 80 more frost-free  days, so make sure you buy the  faster-growing plants.  As the summer fruits become  available it can be fun to think of  new and different ways to use  them, other than canning, drying .  or making jams and conserves.  A delicious use for the ripest  fresh fruit is in Italian sorbetto. To  make this delightful dessert, make  a "sugar syrup, of one part sugar,  one part water, boiled for five  rtiiiiutes and cooled.''Al-drib- this*"  two parts of fresh fruit puree and  freeze in a cake pan or an ice cube  tray without the dividers.  Beat it twice���just after it turns  to slush and then before it freezes  completely. If it is too sweet for  you, add the juice-of two lemons.  (It should taste sweeter before  freezing since this process does cut  the flavour.) Experiment with different combinations, but use only  the very ripest fruit. Add a tablespoon of your favourite liqueur for  added flavour.  Don't forget to prune your  raspberries immediately after  harvest, cutting the canes that have  fruited down to the soil surface.  Pull up any new suckers that appear between the rows, unless you  want new plants, in which case dig  them up and move them.  Finally, a reminder to keep your  garden area clean; pick off all the  old flower heads and seed pods,  unless you are saving seeds, and  keep picking flowers such as sweet  peas and nasturtiums to encourage  more blooming.  Water regularly, especially  tomatoes and corn; rhubarb also  needs plenty bf moisture to help it  store up nutrients for next year's  growth.  I've had a request for informar.  tion on cutworms, scourge of the  sictthl clfbpsMandstomato patch.   ' $  The cutworm is two to five centimetres in length, plump and soft-  bodied, dull coloured, sometimes  white or grey with a dull orange  spot at one end.

Prevention is the best route to  follow, however. Keep the garden  clean, and when planting seedlings  place a three inch cardboard collar  around each plant to stop the cutworms progress. Crushed .egg shells  around young plants are also ah effective deterrent as is Bacillus  Thuningiensis, a bactenium that  makes bugs very sick.  Pressley  cautions  Sechelt  Finance Committee chairman  Ann Pressley gave "a word of caution" to Sechelt council last week  and expressed herself as  "somewhat alarmed" at discovering that there are two or three areas  where council has already bver-'  spent this year's. budget:. V  The areas' hiv question concern,  public wbrlks expenditures for oiling lanes and drainage improvements, aind "a few other  areas are sneaking up rather quickly,'Pressley said.  She recommended that council  not sign any new contracts ''for.  public works projects until she had  completed and presented a  thorough analysis of. the village's  financial situation at its September  12 meeting.  by Betty & Perry Keller  For more than 20 years, Roy  Mason flew his small ski and pontoon equipped planes to the remote  and inaccessible lakes, glaciers and  snowfields of the Pacific Coast  range, places that most coast  dwellers never see in a lifetime. Ice  Runway is the story of these flying  adventures.  Unfortunately, the book begins  with an annoying gimmick: Mason  opens chapter one with his plane  crashing through the ice on frozen  Widgeon Lake and then he leaves  the story hanging for 189 pages  while he tells how, he became involved with mountain flying. Not  being a patient reader, I immediately flipped through the  book to find but. how Mason and  his passenger survived. Although  this could ruin my appreciation of  most books, Ice Runway was not  spoiled for me because it is con-.  structed as a series of adventure  stories, and the chronology jumps  years at a time, anyway. Conser  quently, the casual reader can easily dip in at any chapter.  Many of Mason's flights into the  mountain country were made to fly  climbers to their base camps or to  assist in mountain rescues, but the  book gives little information about  these expeditions. In fact, there is  often the impression that Mason  was visiting rather than experiencing the wilderness.  In spite of these faults, Ice Run*  way has many exciting pages.  Mason not only crashed through  the ice of Widgeon Lake, but was  also stranded on the Warren  Glacier when his plane overturned  during a landing. He tells of landing uphill onto a small snow saddle between two rock peaks at the  source of the Lillooet, and landing  climbers on the glaciers of 13,000  foot Mr. Waddington, the highest  mountain in B.C. A 1964 flight  gave him his most spectacular  view: "Ahead and left, the  Homathco snowfield stretched to  the horizon. On the right, unmistakable and forbidding, even  from 30 miles, Waddington stood  above its neighbouring giant, Mt.  Tiedemann. Touched with fresh  snow Mhe twin spires -were* stunn- .  ing, sight���and an awesome  mountain-climbingchallenge."  Mason made many winter and  summer visits to Garibaldi __ke,  an objective known to most  weekend^ hikers, but his ski and  pontoon equipped plane allowed  him to enjoy the meadows and  local peaks without sweating up the  switchback trail from the parking  lot. For the reader who would like  to fly 'into the heart of the Coast  Range without leaving home, Ice  Runway is a light, pleasant read.  BRUCE M.

This past, weekend saw the  season close for minor ball in Gibsons. The Bronco and Pony division All-Stars travelled to Vancouver to compete in the provincial  playoffs.  . In the Pony Division, Gibsons  was eliminated in two straight  games by losses to Capilano 8-4  and Lynn Valley 10-9.  Gibsons mounted a strong' offensive attack early in both games  only to see the opposition whittle  away the lead and eventually win.  In two games they scored 13 runs  on 13 hits and had a zone playoff  record of 17 stolen bases.  The 10-9 loss to Lynn Valley was  by far the most exciting game in the  tournament. Gibsons jumped in  front 5-0 after two innings and  looked impressive, but Lynn Valley  came back to take the lead in the  fourth inning 7-5 after 8 Gibsons'  errors in the third and fourth innings.  Gibsons took the lead 8-7 on  Sean Tetzloff's three-run homer,  and Vince Bothwell's squeeze bunt  gave Gibsons an insurance run.  But in the bottom of the sixth inning Lynn Valley tied the score on a  bases loaded walk. Lynn Valley  won it in the bottom of the seventh  when Paul Lewis hit a two-out,  bases loaded, full count pitch  bloop single into right field.  Hitting stars for Gibsons were  Sean Tetzloff .667, Sean Whalen  .500, and Nathan Strand .489.  Chosen most valuable player was  Sean Whalen, most sportmanlike,  Allan Pollock.  In the Bronco Division Gibsons  was eliminated in three games, losing 13-0 to East Burnaby and 8-6 to  Kensington, but beating News  Westminster 6-4. Stars for Gib-  sons's Bronco team: Aaron Bjorn-  son's great pitching and Brock  Jaeck's and Scott Frampton "s hitting.

A  . few items were stolen and $45  worth of cash was taken. Police are  still investigating.  A 15-year old male has been  charged with breaking and entering  a Roberts Creek residence. The  female occupant of the house  awoke at four in the morning to  find the intruder on the floor of  her bedroom. Police received the  report on August 1.  Also on the first, Terry Grit of  Gibsons, reported the theft of  $1,400 worth of photographic  equipment stolen from his boat  while moored at the Gibsons  government wharf.  SECHELT RCMP  The Second Look Boutique was  the victim of thieves, who broke into the store between July 30 and 31  and stole some liquor.  On August 1, police received a  report of break and entry from a  cabin located in the Sechelt Inlet  area. Several camping and  household items were stolen from  the cabin.  South Coast Ford Sales was  broken into in the early morning  hours of August 1 and four cars  and a quantity of keys were taken.  The four cars, a 1965 Barracuda, a  1981 Capri, a 1979 Pinto and a  1981 Super Van, have all been  recovered. Three were recovered  on the Reserve and the fourth on  the B.C. Hydro right-of-way. The  Barracuda and the Capri sustained  extensive damages. Charges of  break and entry and of possession  of stolen goods are pending against  three male adults and one adult  female.  Nineteen year old Frederick  Daniel Williams has been charged  'with passing a forged document  and has been sentenced to nine  months in jail. Williams forged a  $7,000 cheque used to purchase a  vehicle from Sunshine GM in  Sechelt. Two days after the  fraudulent purchase of the vehicle,  Williams was involved in a motor  vehicle accident and the new car  was smashed.  On July 29, over $200 worth of  fishing rods were stolen from a  boat moored in Buccaneer Bay.  On July 30, a 12' boat left unat  tended at the foot of Seaview Lane  in Sechelt was stolen.  A wheelbarrow valued at $100  was stolen from the yard of a Ebb  Tide Street residence.  Police arrested an adult male on  July 30 as a result of an investigation into the theft of a boat from  the Egmont area. The man was ar-  15.  rested at a camp located in Brigade  Bay in Jervis Inlet. Charges of  possession of stolen property are  pending against the man. During  their search for stolen property,  police also recovered an outboard  motor and a power plant. Some of  the stolen property came from  White Rock.  town  PART 9: RAPE  The myth that all women secretly want to be raped is nothing but a  warped male fantasy.The notion  that rape is enjoyed by the victim is  commonly shared by rapists. It's  certainly a rather convenient way  of rationalizing the ultimate act of  power that rape is.  But rape is much more than  power, it is an incredibly violent  and angry act. Often the anger is  directed towards the whole female  race. Rapists tend to view women  with a mixture of reverence and  resentment. They choose women at  random on whom to vent their rage  about mothers who mistreated  them or women who rejected  them.  Studies and statistics offer a  rough picture of the "typical"  rapist. He is young, most likely  between the ages of 15 and 19. He  is apt to strike in summer rather  than winter, at night rather than by  day, and half the time, he rapes the  victim in her home. He is usually  poor and, like three quarters of all  rapists, he was sexually abused as a  child.  But the statistics are too sketchy  to categorize rapists. Rape is a  crime of terrifying randomness in  terms of who does it, who suffers it  and where it happens.  Women are raped by priests,  doctors, teachers, lawyers, friends,  casual acquaintances and by their  boyfriends and husbands.

The angry rapist, who brutalizes  his victims, leaving her with injuries, torn clothing or other obvious signs of attack, is more common and the power rapist, who  reasserts his masculinity by coercing and subduing his victim, is by  far the most typical. The power  rapist is by far the hardest to convict, however, because the cooperation he elicits from his victim  may later be misconstrued as consent.  Martial rape is by far the most  secret. But it's rape all the same.  And perhaps the most common  argument used in refuting the concept of marital rape, that a man  cannot "steal" what already  belongs to him, is a significant insight into how society and men  regard women in general.  A man does not rape for sex any  more than an alcoholic drinks  because he is thirsty. Rape is not  the aggressive expression of sex- .  uality but the sexual expression of  aggression.  As a society, it is imperative that  the real reasons behind rape be  known and that all the old ideas  and concepts about rape be thrown  out the window. For the sake of  the victims of rape and the way  society regards them, we need to  know.  Next week, the role of the law ih  the case of rape. !

It's a long way to winter  snowfalls but here's something to  look forward to. Those who use  the Sechelt Arena will be happy to  learn that the grade of the steep hill  on Shoal Way has been lessened.  Mr, Shanks of the Sechelt village  ��� office told us that the work was oc-  ; casioned in part because the lay of  : the. road prior to reconstruction  caused   drainage  problems   with  water. getting   under   the   road  leading to rapid deterioration of  the surface.  MThe work crews lowered the  road level by approximately two to  three feet for two-thirds of its  length thus making the grade more  gradual and easier to drive in  winter conditions.

The 'shmpe^^ tkeftytwre$:  by Kenna Marshall  A children's garden in Dougal  Park; an information centre in  Pioneer Park; the museum located  in an old retired ship in the harbour; and a theatre behind Molly's  Reach: these are just a few of the  ideas that Ruby Buick would like  to see realized in Gibsons. But who  is this lady and why is she concerned with changes to the Sunshine  Coast's largest municipality.  A graduate of the Universities of  Manitoba and Pennsylvania, Ruby  Buick is a qualified planning and  landscape architect. For her final  project at Manitoba U, she chose  to develop a "Marine Recreation  System Proposal" for Gibsons.  Ruby first came to Gibsons last  year and has since made the town  her home. She chose Gibsons for  her home because here she feels a  sense of community, and a "happy  combination of a town and of an  open environment". She chose it  for her study because she  understands the pressure for  change which exists in a growing  town.  Focusing on such concerns as  "increased tourism, demands for  more service industries, and increased traffic and parking loads",  Ruby conceptualized a new Gibsons.  The themes "shelter" and  "substenance" are projected  through her designs of "shelters  carved out of the hillside, fountains pouring forth clean spring  water, plantings of protective  forest, of edible fruit and  medicinal species, and opportunities to explore sea life". By  combining the light, openness,  marine setting and natural vegetation already apparent in Gibsons,  Ruby proposes enhancing the  parks and beaches of the area.  An example of a development  that Ruby would like to see is Armour's Beach. On this site, Ruby  would locate a permanent pier for  fishing, boating and swimming.  Better parking, washrooms and  even a youth hostel could be  located here, each surrounded by  plants and trees for privacy  without taking from, the natural  beauty of the area. <  Specific  seniors  sought  There are 2.5 million Canadian  voters over 65 years of age  representing 10 per cent of the total  population. Yet in terms of voters  they represent between 15 per cent  and 20 per cent of the adult  population and this population is  expected to increase substantially  over the next 50 years until one  person in five will be elderly.  The National Advisory Council  on Aging (NACA), established in  May 1980, has a mandate to assist  and advise the Ministry of Health  and Welfare Canada on matters  relating to the quality of life-'of  older Canadians. The 18 member  council also stimulates public  disucssion on aging through  publications, meetings and conferences. NACA believes that older  persons must be a functional,  useful and integral part of Canadian society.  To that end and in view of the  upcoming federal election the  NACA has prepared a questionnaire which it has sent to the major  political parties asking them to  state their position on these specific  issues:  1. Measures to facilitate the participation of seniors in the political  process; 2.. Designation of  resources to ensure illness prevention and health promotion;  3. Provision of adequate funding  to assure a continuum of care ranging from home support services to  long term care; 4. Adequate pensions for today's seniors;  5. Reforms to guarantee the purchasing power of the next generation of older citizens; 6. Availability of housing options to suit the individual needs and preferences of  seniors.  The Sunshine Coast has become  a favoured area for retired individuals and the Coast News sees  it as important to encourage debate  on these issues. We invite feedback  and we will endeavor to report fully  on your comments and suggestions.  Ruby also considered the  pedestrian and traffic flow in Gibr  sons. The current situation during  peak traffic times is described as  "chaotic", and the solution she  proposes is a one-way system of  traffic. Gower Point Road and  Marine Drive would become scenic  routes, School Road would be closed and a down-hill parking area  provided.  Incoming traffic  flow  would meet Gower Point Road  above Pioneer Park, and northbound traffic would go through  Fisherman's Alley, a through road  joining Marine Drive at the wharf  head..'  As.far as walkways, gardens and  shelters, mostly natural materials  would be used: wood, stone, water  and plants. Simple technology and  labour   provided   voluntarily   by  seniors and youth groups wouhi  keep costs down. MM  It is Ruby's hope that resident^  will choose to develop the town in  a way that the natural setting car)  be  maintained. Mm  Ruby's study is in-depth anctinj-  formative. She welcomes questions  and comments from anyone in>  terested.
