 J  LEGISLATIVE LIBRARY  PfJ^ament Buildings  VICTORIA, B.C.  V8V 1X4  85.4  by Dianne Evans  "Commitments have to be  kept," said Chief of the Sechelt  Indian Band (SIB), Stan Dixon,  in a conversation with the Coast  News the day after the first  ministers' conference on the  native rights ended in failure.  "We do not want to wait until the entrenchment of self  government in        the  constitution," Dixon said. "We  feel that our rights are already  entrenched in the constitution  (in section 35), so that is why we  have started bi-lateral talks with  the federal government.  "The legislation we are proposing (Sechelt Indian Band,  Self Government Act, March  1985) will enable us to withdraw  from the Indian Act and to conduct our own affairs."  In the Sechelt Indian Band  News, April 4, the Band position   is   outlined   clearly;   tri-.  partite negotiation is not sup  ported, subject as it is to provincial approval. Bi-lateral negotiations with the Federal government will hopefully result in  passage of enabling legislation  after which the Band will then  commence negotiations with the  provincial government to  resolve over-lapping jurisdiction. This will be possible  because self government will  give the Band a legal entity and  the power to enter into contractual discussions.  "We have never changed our  direction," said Dixon. "From  the start we have believed that  bi-lateral negotiations are the  only way to go." The 209 page  Constitution of the SIB was formalized in 1982 and is a  negotiating document for these  bi-lateral negotiations. The SIB  has no wish to commence  negotiations with the province  at this point because the British  Columbia government does not  recognize native land rights, one  of the major issues with the SIB  as it is with most other Indian  groups across the country.  Dixon sees last week's conference as a waste of time and  money and does not hold much  hope for any more success at a  future date.  Gordon Anderson, financial  advisor for the SIB, commented  that failure was inevitable;  "Who would accept watered  down wine when they had a  glass of good wine in the first  place?"  In an attempt to get provincial approval for the constitutional amendment, Prime  Minister Mulroney's final proposal was a watered down version of the original amendment  and would have entrenched the  principle of self-rule for In-,  dians, Inuits and Metis, but  there would be no guarantee of  provision of a process for  negotiating its terms and conditions.  The current push for self  government by the SIB and the  manner in which it is being pursued could, if. the legislation is  passed by both the commons  and the senate, mark the first  step in the ultimate dissolution  of the Department of Indian  Affairs and Northern Development.  "We have never stated that  we wanted the DIA to close  down,".said Dixon, "There'll  always be Indians who need the  department, but it is the start of  the demise of the DIA. There  are a lot of bureaucrats who  want to save their jobs.  "What has to be understood  is that this Band exercises every  power it can under the Indian  Act right now," he continued.  "We are already practising self  government, but with a lot of  restrictions.  "We don't want to change  our legislation. There are two  absolutes that we must have,"  Dixon said. "The first is that we  must have legal title to all the  lands presently reserved for the  Band. Right now we are denied  the right all Canadians have to  their own land.  "The second absolute is that  there must be no provision for  failure in the legislation. We  haven't gone through all this, all  these discussions and dialogues,  to fail. The DIA would like to  put a clause in there that says if  we should fail we'll get taken  back into the fold. That's like  getting married saying you can  always get divorced later.  "Our legislation and constitution has all the protections  necessary for our membership.  In fact we have more protections in there than most citizens  have."  Minister of Indian Affairs  and Northern Development,  David Crombie has expressed  optimism toward the passage of  the legislation, but has put the  issue on the back burner until  the first ministers' conference  ended. It is now hoped by the  SIB that, following the drafting  of a Cabinet Document,  necessary to get the legislation  on the House of Commons  agenda, Crombie will actively  seek passage of the Bill, as he  has promised during discussions.  "We are not asking for a  hand-out, but just for a hand to  get us going," said Dixon. "We  have 36 people in adult education in the city right now, anticipating our move to self  government. We want to have  our own people working for  us."  "We're wasting time," said  Anderson, "this waiting for implementation is holding us up in  what we want to do."  If the SIB is successful it is  probable, according to Dixon,  that many Bands across Canada  will follow its example and also  seek the bi-lateral approach,  waiting until later for a constitutional amendment.

The meeting is designed as a  follow-up working session to  elucidate questions arising from  the Provincial Municipal Partnership Initiative announced on  March 15 in Victoria.  An invitation has been extended to the Gibsons council to  send representatives to the  meeting and this was under  discussion at the April 2 council  meeting.  "I can't see anything right  away in these proposals," said  Mayor Larry Labonte, "but  there is a future."  Alderman Norm Peterson  agreed; "We should be there to  register our opinions; even if we  are not participating now, we  Police donation  Representatives of the Sechelt detachment of the RCMP  turned over $2,566 recently to hospital administrator Nick  Vucurevich of St. Mary's Hospital.

Films on writers  Tonight, Wednesday, April 10, the Sunshine Coast Arts  Council and the Suncoast Writers' Forge celebrate National  Book Week with three oustanding films on Canadian writers.  The film Island will be shown at 7 p.m. This is the story of  the life and work of Jack Hodgins, the Vancouver Island  novelist who opened the first Festival of the Written Arts in  1983.  At 8:15 p.m., the film will be Volcano: An Inquiry into the  Life and Death of Malcolm Lowry.  At 10 p.m. a tribute to the late essayist and poet F.R. Scott  will be shown; it is entited F.R. Scott: Rhyme and Reason. *  All films will be shown at the Arts Centre in Sechelt. Admission for the entire evening of films is 50 cents to cover the  cost of bringing the films to the Sunshine Coast. Coffee will  be available.  Update bulletins on the Forge Anthology, the new photo  copier, and the Festival of the Written Arts will be distributed  to Forge members between 8 and 8:15 p.m.  Birding meeting  The monthly birding meeting of Sechelt Marsh Society is  Friday, April 12 at 7:30 p.m., at the Sechelt Arts Centre.

There was some discussion  among members of council  about the necessity of attending  a meeting to review a program  which seems to lack any  substantive gains for the  municipality, but it was finally  decided that the Mayor, accompanied by Alderman Norm  Peterson would attend, with  Alderman John Burnside to  deputise for the mayor should  he be unable to attend.  Dick Proctor, representing  ; the Sechelt Chamber of Commerce, made a request to the  Sechelt council for a grant of  $5,000 to operate the Sechelt  Chamber's Tourist information  booth this year.  "The only money we have to  operate the booth is from  membership and council  grants," said Proctor.  o. ''It's considerably more than  *we*ve been acfeustoniedtQ granting in the past," said Alderman  Short in reference to the usual  $2,000 allocated for the same  purpose.  RCMP asks  lor help  The Gibsons RCMP are requesting public assistance in  locating the following suspect  and vehicle in regards to an  ongoing investigation. Anyone  with information is requested to  contact the Gibsons RCMP  without delay. Phone 886-2245.  Suspect Description: 30 to 35  year old white male, slim, 160  pounds, five foot six to six feet  tall, his face was described as  having a sharp nose and narrow  features with a thin reddish coloured moustache and beard. At  the time, he was reportedly  wearing blue jeans and a light  coloured shirt, and dark coloured patten-type slip-on shoes.  Vehicle Description: Shiny  white newer mid-sized car with  a pin stripe or chrome piece on  the door. The interior was  described as dark in colour with  a bench seat.  "So in fact you want council  to run the tourist booth, is that  it?" asked Mayor Joyce  Kolibas.  In response to council's request for a financial statement  and '85 budget justifying the request for increased funding  Proctor indicated that the  Chamber is still waiting for  statements from their accoun-  ;taht.k ^;,: '���;<,���  .;-;��� ������'::���, V..

Formed in September 1984,  the Junior Forest Wardens,  under the guidance of club  supervisor Gordon Skertchley  first learned the value of slash  burning as a forest fire prevention and as a preparation for  tree-planting.  Last week, thanks to the cooperation and assistance of the  provincial ministry of forests,  who provided them with two-  year old trees for the planting,  and Canadian Forest Products  who gave them the contract to  plant 2,800 trees on land for  which Canfor had the timber  licence, the young forest  wardens took the exercise  through the full cycle.  "The land was logged in the  spring of 1984 and burnt in the  fall of 1984. Now, with the  planting of two-year old trees in  the spring of 1985 we got a  year's jump on the cycle," Gordon Skertchley told the Coast  News last week.  "We particularly want to  thank the ministry of forests for  finding trees for us and Canfor  for their assistance and for the  contract," said Skertchley.  The club supervisor of the  Junior Forest Wardens said that  the young wardens will be totally responsible for the management of this patch of land.  "The kids are going to  monitor the growth and treat it  as their own little forest," said  Skertchley. "They are going to  do survival studies and  regeneration surveys and  manage this patch of land. They  will be responsible for weeding  the brush and for possible  future thinning." 2.  Coast News, April 10,1935  r  We are fortunate here on the Sunshine Coast to be  witness to a piece of history in the making. The Sechelt Indian Band, in its diligent pursuit of self-government  through legislation and bi-lateral negotiations, offers Indian bands across the country an alternative to constitutional amendment.  Last week's First Ministers' Conference on native rights  and the entrenchment in the constitution showed how  futile it is to approach the issue from a single direction. To  try to placate the provinces and the native peoples required  a miracle that even the smooth-tongued conciliator  Mulroney was unable to perform.  To keep the provinces happy the native peoples would  have had to give up rights already entrenched in the constitution, even if not defined. An approach which would  legislate rights could easily be a pre-cursor to constitutional  change at a later date.  From the beginning the Band has pursued their objectives on a bi-lateral basis; their respect for the power of the  law and the fairness of the law-makers has stood them in  good stead on what has proven to be a lengthy, sometimes  disappointing, course.  That people who are our friends and neighbours should  be denied rights basic to all other citizens of Canada is a  disgrace to us all. That the Indian Act, in its paternalistic  approach to native problems, has created more social problems than it ever solved is a historical precedent that  should be up-rooted.  We should all have the right to decide our future, to  take our own chances, to stand or to fall. We citizens  should lift our voices to the government and make it clear  that such inequities as are suffered by native peoples have  no place in our society.  David Crombie, minister of Indian Affairs and Northern Development is the eleventh such minister to sit at  the table with the Chief of the Sechelt Band and negotiate  self-government. Let us hope he is to be the last.  Dianne Evans  from the flies of the COAST HEWS  5 YEARS AGO  Elspeth Armstrong, local representative for the Island  Trust for Gambier Island, is shocked to hear that the provincial government, despite reports by its own consultants, will permit further mining exploration on land  that is clearly of recreational value.

The  City of Vancouver had been incorporated less than a month when  this series of pictures was taken by 20 year old Harry Torkington  Devine who had arrived in the city during the last week of April to  set up a "photo gallery". He had been trained as a photgrapher by  J.A. Brock, landscape and portrait photographer, of Brandon,  Manitoba, and when Devine's father, John Henry Raymond Devine  (who became Vancouver's first assessor), decided to head further  west, Brock sent the young man off with his blessings to set up a  branch office in Victoria. But Devine chose instead to go to bustling  Vancouver and thereby provided posterity with nearly all the existing  pictures of that city in its historic first year. 1.

He had just popped his head  into our yard from beneath the  overgrown arbour which  threatens to turn the entrance to  our house into a veritable tunnel. I was struggling manfully  with a wheelbarrow loaded  down with unused roofing  materials which had too long  turned a prime corner of the  yard into what seemed a  wrecker's yard.  This was my last barrow-load  - I'd been struggling with the  situation for what seemed the  better part of a lifetime already  that day - and I was glad of the  interruption. I put the wheelbarrow down immediately and  sat on the handle.  "What do you mean, Jake?  The manual labour?"  "Hardly," said Jake.  "You're in no danger of  developing callouses just yet, if  Brace yourself  I know anything about your  dedication to the land. No, I  was talking about the  suspenders, or braces as I  believe you Northern Europeans call them."  I hooked my thumbs through  the latest acquisition to my  wardrobe, a little selfconsciously perhaps.  "Yes, well, I'm finally taking  an old high school teacher's advice."  "Better late than never," said  Jake. "What advice, pray tell."  "About 30 years ago when,  as an adolescent, I thought  wearing a belt was the absolute  mark of manhood, one of my  teachers told me that the braces  I had been wearing were a much  more sensible way of keeping  your trousers up. He told me  that it was much better for one's  posture to have your trousers  hanging from your shoulders  than to tie them around your  middle."  "He's quite right. But what  made you decide to follow his  advice at this late date."  "A couple of things. I had to  wear them in that play we did  and liked the security it gave  me. You see, I've gained a little  bit of a pot belly of late and 1  find that where my trousers used to hang on my hip bones  now they have a tendency to  slide over the hill and end up  considerably lower. These  trousers, you see, we thought  we were going to have to  shorten but with braces on them  they're just right. It feels better  and a fairly close observer of  the scene, who sits across there  weeding the radishes, has ventured the opinion that I seem to  be holding the old turn in more  since I gave up the belt."  "I never cease to marvel at  the inability of humankind to  take any advice whatsoever till  they run smack into the truth of  it for themselves," said Jake.  "Of what use is wisdom?"  "It's a thought that has occurred to me, too, Jake, since I  became the father of young men  and women. The things they do  that I know they shouldn't do  but will continue to do until  they decide to stop doing  them."  "It's not easier getting  older," said Jake. "But now,  that we've established that you  are well-braced against the  world, what's chances of a cup  of tea? It's not every day I walk  up this far."  "You're on Jake. I'll just put  the kettle on."  "And I'll say hello to your  good lady," said Jake, "and  give her a hand with the  weeding till the kettle boils and  you do whatever you had in  mind to do with that wheelbarrow."  Dianne Evans  The community newspaper  One of the tasks I was assigned when I first came to work at  the Coast News was the collecting of material for "We  Remember When". In the  course of this weekly jaunt  down memory lane I came to  view the newspaper as a  repository of the Sunshine  Coast's history; in those old,  yellowing pages were hopes and  dreams, achievements and  failures, births and passings, all  the stuff that makes our community what it is today.  There has been a lot of talk  lately about what the community newspaper should be. To me,  it should fulfill several important roles.  It should reflect the life of the  community. On the Sunshine  Coast we have widely scattered  communities, and no effective  way of hearing about what's going on up the road; the  newspaper should step into the  gap and provide that news. It is  important to those who live in  Halfmoon Bay, for example, to  read about events in that area,  to share in their neighbour's  happiness or sadness.  Too, we have in our community a large number of volunteers, working at everything  from the hospital auxiliary, to  Beavers and Scouts, Kinsmen  and Lions, Legion auxiliaries,  parents' groups, seniors'  organizations; it is safe to say  that without our volunteers the  quality of life on the Sunshine  Coast would be severely limited.  The community newspaper  should be there to carry news  for these hard working,  community-minded   folks.  Without publicity, fund drives  don't succeed and public  recognition for the splendid  achievements of such groups is  the community's way of saying,  "Thank you".  On the political scene, the  community newspaper should  act as an objective recorder of  events occurring at the  municipal and regional levels. It  is in our local politics that we  are able to see the results of our  vote, we are able to go to the  council meeting and make our  concerns heard, we are able to  keep watch on our elected officials far more closely than  with our provincial or federal  representatives.  The decisions made at the  local level affect our daily lives  in many ways, and we need to  be  informed.  The newspaper  has a responsibility to its readers  to carry the local political news,  to let people know what decisions have been made and how  these decisions were reached. A  well-informed electorate is more  apt to make a wise choice than  one whose knowledge is limited:  The newspaper is in a position to support the arts and  leisure activities; encouragement  is a powerful incentive and  publicity ensures a better au-j  dience whether it be for film oh  play, exhibition or festival:  Writers too can be represented  in the local press; sometimes it is  the acceptance needed to eri4  courage further work. ���  Opinions are an important  part of the community  newspaper as well.

I believe a title, with its consequent responsibilities, must be well earned.  Such   illogical   thinking,  bordering on the insane, on the  part of those claiming leadership of whole national units is  the tragedy of our time. Frankly, we have exhausted our  vocabulary in describing the utter senselessness of this course  of action.

Gurney,  Chairman of the Sunshine  Coast Regional District, on the  same page, basically explains  the circumstances of the incident and sheds a little more light  on the matter.  There was no authorization  given by the SPCA for Ms Gow  to send the dog to Sandy Hook  by taxi, and therefore, accordingly, the SPCA feels the fare  should be paid by Ms Gow who  ordered the taxi in the first  place.  However, the dog involved in  this incident was soon placed into a good home by the SPCA.  If Ms Gow and Mr. Orpen  feel we badly need some sort of  control service over here, then I  would suggest that they offer  their help to assist the SPCA to  alleviate the misery of abandoned and unwanted animals on the  Sunshine Coast.

Yet,  both political and economic  leaders cannot see the obvious.  "None are so blind as those  who will not see.-"  Some of us are aware,  however, that the blind desire  by those in the saddle, to retain  by any means���fair br foul���,  the totally immoral and, I may  add, untenable traditional  economic intercourse to  preserve the status quo, cannot  see the suicidal course thus embarked upon.  One may conclude  philosphically, that the apparent inability of humankind  to emerge from the jungle stage,  as shown by the voting pattern  in the main centres of the  western world, justifies the  complete obliteration of all life  on this tortured plant for all  time...

I  do not think that we should be a  part of it. I think that Mr.  Reagan or the Russians are  wrong in building these destructive weapons.  I do not know what anyone  could do if one of the warheads  were accidentally launched. I  am only 13, but I am scared of'  them. I think they should all be  taken and disposed of off the  face of the earth. If I had one  wish it would be that all the  wars around the world were  stopped and that everyone  would be friends.

"My brother Bill was mate  on the Lady Alexandra in 1946  and has warm memories of the  Union Steamship company."  Dick adds, "My Uncle George  was the first engineer on the  Lady Rose when she went into  service in 1937."  HEART FUND THANKS  Mrs. Elizabeth Johnston who  was in charge of the February  Heart Fund drive in the Gibsons  area is most appreciative of the  work of those canvassing and of  the response of the public.  "Despite the hard times,'.'  said Mrs. Johnston, "the people collecting were well received,  and residents gave generously.  In fact," she added, "the total  amount donated in Gibsons was  up by a good percentage, as was  the total on the Sunshine  Coast."  NEW SHOP  When Ruth Benson was asked if her new shop "The  Lighthouse" in the Omega  Block would be in direct competition with the Hunter Gallery  across the street, she said, "I  don't think it is going to be. My  shop is an outlet for homecraft  DIET CENTER.  THE  WEIGHT-LOSS  PROFESSIONALS!  -the cottage industries."

Jean Roberts who lives in the  vicinity of the two fires that occurred just before 5 a.m. Good  Friday tells of her part in the  event.  "I was the one that turned in  the alarm," she said.  "Something awakened me that  morning, a sixth sense perhaps,  and when I saw smoke rolling  by my house, I thought it might  be my neighbour's, Marie  Scott's, home on fire..  "I ran barefoot to her house  to warn her and you can appreciate how relieved I was  when I found no house burning,  and that the smoke came from a  storage garage on Dougal  Road."  The other fire, at the marina  office, is reported on elsewhere  in these pages.  Cavalcade update  Preparations for Gibsons Sea  Cavalcade are moving along  apace, and at the April 2 Gibsons council meeting it was  agreed by council that a rider be  attached to the town's insurance  policy for protection during the  celebrations.

Catherine Kelly sang "Allehany  Moon" and "A Good Man is  Hard to Find", but I must have  been jostled then because my  notes are not too clear.  The 69'ers came on the scene  with their parody "Oh to be a  69'er in Sechelt" and "That Brings You Home". There was  "I'll be Loving You" and a  polka, "I'm Dancing with an  Angel". Then May Winn and  "The Man".  The 69'ers gave us "I'm Getting Married in the Morning",  then Eric with his harmonica,  playing "Santa Lucia" with the  69'ers giving background support, brought a spontaneous  burst of applause.  ���There were many songs, including "Drink, Drink, Drink",  Ain't We Got Fun?", "Falling  in Love Again", and I hope  what I have written will give you  an idea of the versatility of the  artistic population and their  varied talents.  In the finale they promised  that they will be back someday,  and I would like to extend the  thanks of Branch 69 for the  tremendous lift they have given  to our efforts.  I would also ask, on behalf of  the reporters, that the next time,  they try to give us a printed program, so that we may give due  credit to the many fine artists  taking part. My hair is white  enough without putting more  gray in it.  We had ample proof on the  evenings of March 29 and 30  that we do not have to go to  town or any other metropolis to  get the absolute tops in entertainment. The occasion was two  concerts given in the Seniors'  Hall, by the Halfmoon Hams  and the singers from the 69'ers,  all in support of our efforts to  secure a larger hall than the one  we have at present, which was  jammed on both nights.  All the staging was under the  direction of our so capable  Nikki Weber and the accompanist was our own Connie  Wilson. The support shown will  enable us to buy quite a few  sheets of plywood for which we  give our hearty thanks to all.  We have a long way to go but  with the support we have been  receiving we should not find the  task insuperable.  The show opened with a  number of songs by the Hams  -who were smartly costumed in  black shirts and white vests. I  won't try to describe the ladies'  ��owns, but they were all "sooo  .beautiful".  ; They started by singing "It's  Time for Another Show" and  kept up a rapid pace throughout  the evening. Following the  opening song John Hamilton  and Nikki gave us a duet of  "Hello People" and in rapid  succession, "Let Me Go" and  "If That's Not Love". Ruth  Forrester, appropriately dressed, gave us the "Red Yo-Yo".  Ronnie Dunn was a hit with  SIB councillor  at graduation  A ceremony held at Mus-  queam Hall in Vancouver  marked the graduation of the  Band Social Service Worker  program, a unique 15 week program held between February  1984 and March 1985. Chiefs of  five Native Indian Bands were  among the 200 people present.  Twenty three students from  17 British Columbia bands were  involved in the BSSW program  which required a good deal of  dedication   in   order   to   par-  working as social service  workers in their communities  had to leave their jobs for two  weeks at a time to travel to  Capilano College to attend  classes.  The BSSW program focussed  on the principles and practices  of social work, and included instruction on such topics as  theories of social development.  Among those students  graduating as BSSW was Ben  Pierre,   a   councillor   for   the  ticipate.   Students,    already        Sechelt Indian Band.  Cutbacks deplored  In response to a Gibsons  council letter requesting area  support for airport development, Sechelt council will send a  letter to the department of  transportation and highways.  . A letter will be drafted urging  the restoration of the cuts that  have been made to the Air  Transport Assistance Program.  Shirley Henry, mayor of  Pemberton and co-chairman of  the airport divisions advisory  board indicated in a letter to  council that ATAP is subject to  a 'discretionary budget' and as  such, vulnerable to cuts.  Henry in her letter said the  original $5 million per annum  has been cut to $2 million in the  last few years.  Canfor cuts protested  Continued from page 1  SCRD is losing five to six per  cent revenue because of it. The  Union will be talking with the  company as well."  The cost  of  financing  this  popular   program   is   approx  imately $4,000 per annum, or  about $400 per month for each  of the 10 months the pool is  open.  The council supported the  mayor's decision to write to the  company expressing his disappointment at their decision.  ^H%  ^0\^  NOTICE  To All Users Of The  SECHELT SEWER SYSTEM  An increase of 10% has been put into effect for all  users of the Sechelt Sewer System.

The call was  answered and the feeder duly  filled and put in place. It didn't  take long for the little guy to get  the message and he has been  busy all day long.  This is really the only time  when the feeders should be used  because as yet there are very few  pollens around, and in a couple  of weeks there will be lots of  their natural nectars and the  feeder is no longer necessary. So  bear that in mind if you decide  to feed them.  I am still eagerly awaiting the  first flight of geese returning  any day now. Some more of our  own local snow geese have  already returned from far away  places, the latest being the  Hobbs, the Shannons and the  Hughes. Welcome home, one  and all.  HOSPITAL AUXILIARY  The Halfmoon Bay branch of  the hospital auxiliary held their  monthly meeting last week at  Welcome Beach Hall.  On April .16 there will be a  work party at the home of Bertie Haull at 10 a.m. Anyone  who would like to help make  items for the fall bazaar should  attend, and even if you have  never done anything along those  lines there are plenty of willing  gals who would be happy to  show you how.  Members were invited to a tea  at the Senior Citizens' Hall in  Sechelt on Wednesday, April 17  between 4:30 and 6 p.m.  . This is in recognition of all  volunteers on the Coast to  celebrate volunteer week and if  you plan to attend you should  call 885-5881 before April 10  for full information.  On June 2 at 1:30 p.m., St.  Mary's Hospital will be hosting  their annual Appreciation Tea  at the hospital and all auxiliary  members are invited.  May 4 is the big day for our  local auxiliary as they will be  hosting an afternoon tea from 2  to 4 p.m. This is what we like to  call our Friendship Tea and is  the group's way of saying thank  you to all the people in the area  who give such great support to  all the events sponsored by the  auxiliary. Everyone is invited to  attend and you can be sure of a  warm welcome. An added attraction to the day will be a  display by the Halfmoon Bay  Brownies and Beavers. So be  sure to mark that date on your  calendar.  Another date for the calendar  is the Friday evening of April 26  when the Halfmoon Hams will  be presenting their, show at  Welcome Beach Hall at 8 p.m.  We would really like to see a  packed house for this one as the  proceeds will go to the Cystic  Fibrosis Foundation.  The popular 69'ers as well as  Ronnie Dunn will be making  guest appearances at this show,  and you really must come along  to see the Hams' new rock  group in action.  Tickets at $4 are available at  the Halfmoon Bay Store, both  book shops in Sechelt and at  Strings 'n Things.  LUCK TO THE  PERRY FAMILY  All of us in our area are  pleased to see that Art and Donna Perry have become owners  of the new bulk food store in  Sechelt located in the vicinity of  the cenotaph.

A LITTLE OF THIS AND  A LITTLE OF THAT  The Family Bulk Food Store  that opened officially on Saturday April 6, is going to be a  boon to those living alone. Here  they can pick up just the little  bits they need.  This is an old way of shopping that is finding interest today. Such a clean, fresh store  filled with spices, candies, tidbits of chocolate and nuts, flour  of all kinds, and other cereals  such as bran, cornmeal, rolled  oats, etc.  That Ye Olde Doughnut man  sent along doughnuts to serve  with coffee for the opening day.  Sechelt is getting a good feeling  along Cowrie Street as more  small stores open.

Over $500 went to provincial  causes, while nearly $3,000 was  spent in our local community.  Some.of the specifics are: $250  for the Annual Community Picnic; $50 to the fire department  for fireworks; $100 to the Elves'  Club; $100 to the Serendipity  Playschool; $200 to the Wildlife  Club; $250 to Timmy's  Telethon; and $250 to the  CNIB.  The Lions also pay sponsorship fees for the local Beavers,  Cubs and Scouts; give a local  student a $350 scholarship; put  on the Easter Egg Hunt; and  put over $600 into Lions Park  facilities. Nearly $1,000 was  given to local families in  emergency situations.  Support  your  Lions  Club,  who are certainly serving our  community well.  KAYAK TRIP  The handsome young visitor  making local girls' hearts beat  faster is Dirk Stass, who is making his way by icayak up to  Malibu and back.  Dirk left Vancouver in mid-  March, and found himself on  Thormanby Island during that  dreadful storm on March 22.  Now a resident of Vernon,  Dirk came to British Columbia  from Cologne, Germany via  Guatemala. He says that the  people of Pender Harbour ~:t  the friendliest he's met.  Good luck on the rest of your  trip, Dirk. Come back and visit  again.

Coast News, Apri 110,1985  by Gladys Coates  April 1 in Harmony Hall was  no joke. Good will and harmony prevailed under the  leadership of Jim Munro.  Our regional representative  was visiting with us again. Dr.  Johnson told us about the  Canada wide "March to the  Moon" in which all seniors who  are able to walk may participate. The distance is about  270,000 miles, and all walkers  are asked to keep an account of  the miles they walk during the  period from May 25 to June 2.  It is part of Canada's fitness  plan for those over 50 years of  age. Walking is a healthy activi-  , ty, so hope you will all join in.  Inadvertently, I may have  given the impression in this column, that our ceramics class  was failing. Ed Connor says the  class is alive and doing well.  Most of the activities at the hall  taper off, come spring, but all  will resume in the fall.  The exercise classes are on  hold until. September. They  have been enjoyed, and I hope  we can have a better turn-out in  the fall.  This is our last month for  public bingo, the final date being Thursday, April 25. The  public has responded very well,  and seems to enjoy the comfort  of our hall.  The painting class sounds  very enthusiastic, under the  direction of Hazel Coxall with  an assist from Jessie Morrison.  Social bingo will be held each  Monday afternoon at 1:30. We  play 10 games at a cost of three  cards for $1. Prizes depend on  money collected. It is purely for  the pleasure of our members, so  come on out.  Win Stevens reported on  planned tours. The April trip is  a tour of the Expo Centre,  which should be quite exciting.  Then in May we are off to  Squamish for lunch and then a  tour of Brittania Mines.  On April 13 from 1. to 4 Ed  and Molly Connor will be  celebrating 50 years of wedded  bliss, and everyone is invited to  be with them. They have been  long-time members of Branch  #38 OAPO, and have made invaluable contributions in  various ways toward the  building and furnishing of Harmony Hall. They were instrumental in introducing the  carpet bowling that we all enjoy. So come and honour them  on Saturday afternoon. -  A committee has been formed to arrange a hobby show,  and details have yet to be worked out. We are thinking of June  or July, so even you folks who  have gardening as a hobby  could probably show  something.  The ceramics, and art classes  will be displaying their wares, as  well as the sewers, knitters,  crocheters, wood workers,  stamp collectors, cooks and  doers of other types of crafts  and hobbies. Think about it,  make your plans, polish up your  skills, and next month we will  have set a definite date.  The Harmony Hall  Choristers sang for us at our  meeting on Monday. It was very  much appreciated, and we  realize why they are so well  received at the care homes. Jack  Inglis arrived a little late, so accompanied by Steve White on  piano, Jack played a few lively  tunes on the violin, and had toes  tapping,all over the hall.  Friday fun night is still going  strong. Cards start at 7:30  sharp. After cards the dart  boards get a working over by  our avid dart players. Friday,  April 25 will be potluck dinner  at 6 p.m., followed by cards at  7:30.  Harmony Hall is where it is  happening!  No more  Katimavik  workers  It was disappointing news for  Gibsons Council when a letter  was received from Katimavik,  announcing that, due to reduced funding of the program, the  town will not be getting any  volunteers for the summer/fall  trimester.  The town had hoped to have  three volunteers to work on the  campsite, in Brothers Park,  where Katimavikers are already  hard at work. However, it is  hoped that assistance might be  forthcoming at a later date.

I ate all these treats in  a desperate attempt to produce a curve on my body.  Anywhere would have done, I think! Thankfully I'm eighteen no more - and no thanks at all -1 got curves every  which way! I dunno why - but every so often someone offers me a treat and I say yes 'cause I like to know where  all those curves come from! Wanna curve? I'll share this  with you.  It is advisable to avoid your local teenager,as you spread  the strawberries it may make marks of a pseudo medical  nature. Twenty-four hours later of course it will have  forgotten it could have uttered anything so foul and will  ask for more!  By the way, the store had run out of small cartons of  whipping cream so I was forced to buy a large carton.  Perhaps I'll tell you how to develop more curves next  week!

The United Nations  Human Rights Commission  meeting in Geneva has passed  an unusual resolution re  questing its special representative on Iran to make a report  oh the persecution of the Iranian Baha'i community to the  UN General Assembly next faU.  In a rare action, the resolu-.  tion, sponsored by Canada and  five other nations* and passed  by a vote of 21 to five, makes  specific mention of "religious  intolerance and persecution, in  particular of the Baha'is" and  calls for special Rappourteur  Andres Aguilar to make a  report on the situation to the  November 1985 session of the  General Assembly. Only three  other times in its 40 year history  has the human rights situation  in a particular country been  brought to the highest body of  the UN.  Nancy Ackerman, public information officer of the Baha'is  of Canada, said "Canadian  .Baha'is welcome the resolution.  We are particularly grateful for  the outstanding role played by  the Canadian UN delegation in  maintaining international concern over the persecution of our  sister. Baha'i community in  Iran.  ' 'Noting the history of consistent support shown by the  Canadian UN delegation on the  issue of the Baha'is since the  parliamentary resolutions passed in 1980 and 1981," she said,  "this resolution marks a significant step forward because it indicates that international efforts  to make the desperate situation  of the Baha'is in Iran more  ' widely known are gaining  momentum. The Canadians  were as active at this year's  commission as observers as they  were in the past as members."  The encouraging news of the  commission's actions was ac:  companied within hours by the  grim news of two additional executions** of Baha'is in Iran.  Speaking at the commission  meeting early last week, Gerald  Knight, (head of the Baha'i  delegation in Geneva and permanent representative of the  ' Baha'i International Community to the UN) said that during  the time the special representative has been investigating the  human rights situation in Iran,  eight condemned Baha'is had  been executed, as well as a further six whose death sentences  had never been publicly announced.  ���Other   sponsors   were  . Australia,   Costa   Rica,   The  Netherlands, Panama and the  United Kingdom.  **The two latest executions  actually took place during the  Human Rights Commission's  deliberations in Geneva and bring to a total of 192, the number  of Baha'is put to death for their  religious beliefs since the beginning of the revolution.

The 3oo{< Sto^.6  OAK-?EiB Market:  by Peter Trower  One of the best things about  being a writer is the fact that it  brings you into contact with  some extraordinary people.  Generally, you meet these people separately in isolated circumstances, have your conversations, realize kindredship and  part with no one the wiser. But  sometimes, a peculiar juxtaposition of events, brings  several of you together in the  same room.  Such a meeting occurred the  other night. It begins with a letter from Hugh MacMillan,  known in archival circles as the  "History Detective". Hugh  (whom I'll deal with at length in  a subsequent piece) is a  remarkable man. Yvonne and I  met Hugh during our search for  the truth about Herbert Wilson,  the King of the Safecrackers, in  1982. He and his good wife  Muriel had treated us royally in  their log cabin home along the  Guelph Line in Ontario. Now  Hugh is coming west and it is  our turn to play host.  Hugh is on a lecture tour but  has two or three free days between engagements. He has suggested that we bring several  writers of like interests together  for a Saturday night summit-  conference of sorts. Yvonne  and I are certainly amenable  and spend most of the preceding  day preparing the food.  Originally we planned on  having as many as 10 people but  Hugh is unable to contact some  of his friends and we settle for a  smaller group, all biographers  of one sort or another. Even  Yvonne and I qualify for our  work on the Herb Wilson story.  Rae Fleming, an old associate  of Hugh's is the first to arrive.  A slight man in this thirties, Rae  also hails from Ontario but a  research project has brought  him to the West Coast. He and  Hugh met by chance in Victoria, a few days earlier.  Rae is laying the groundwork  for a book about the man who  built Canada's third national  railway line, the Northern  Trunk, that once ran through  the Yellowhead before being absorbed, by the CNR in the  Twenties. Neither Yvonne nqr  myself has even heard of this  line or its founder before. It certainly explains the overgrown  mounds of what must be ancient rail grade that parallel the  Yellowhead highway at certain  points.  Rae's manner seems a little  pedantic at first but he soon  relaxes, betraying a wild sense  of humour, The arid (if often  fascinating) business of research  would seem an unlikely source  of levity but Rae milks it for all  it is worth. His hilarious  descriptions of various pompous or incompetent officials he  has encountered in his archival  travels, soon have us in stitches.  Our little group is soon  augmented by the arrival of Betty Keller, local author and  playwright, justly renowned for  her biographies of Pauline  Johnson and Ernest Thompson  Channel  Ten  Wednesday, April 10  7 pjn.  1.Canadian Diabetes Association.

Betty is in good fettle  also and regales us with  numerous anecdotes of her own  about the travails of the writing  trade.  Hugh MacMillan has been  particularly anxious to meet  Betty. In his constant quest for  archival papers, he has  discovered several hitherto-  unknown letters by both  Thompson Seton and Pauline  Johnson. While it is somewhat  after the fact in her case, Betty  is still interested in seeing the  material.  The exercise proves a bit of a  letdown, however, as Betty has  already seen the letters  elsewhere. The normally-  unflappable Hugh is a bit taken-  aback. Evidently his contact has  sold the letters (or copies of  them) more than once.  Hugh's disappointment is  soon alleviated by the entrance  of John Oliphant, the most  mysterious of our guests. John  is the indefatigable researcher  who single-handedly tracked  down the true story of Vancouver Island cultist, Brother  Twelve - a task that had eluded  numerous writers before him.  Yvonne and I had made contact  with John while tracking down  the same story but had yielded  the field to him in view of his  two-year head start.  Over the years, Oliphant,  Yvonne and myself have  become good friends. In fact we  have developed almost a parental affection for the reclusive  writer. John is addicted to taping people and immediately asks  permission to set up his  recorder. Thus, the rest of the  evening is captured for obscure  posterity.  Soon, the focus of the conversation begins to settle on  John Oliphant and the  mysteries and contradictions of  the Brother Twelve saga. We  are pleased to hear that he has  finally finished the book after  many revisions and is casting  about for an agent.  Yvonne and I are not without ���  certain apprehensions however,  in regard to Oliphant's book. In  the time we have known him,  John appears to have fallen  under, the spell of the long-dead  cultist and become.somewhat of  an apologist for him. We fear  he may have lost objectivity on  the material and voice these  misgivings to him quite frankly.  John assures us that he has left  it all open to the reader's own  interpretations. We sincerely  hope he is right.  The fascinating talk swings  back and forth across the room  as the evening hums along. At  one point, Rae Fleming vows,  quite spontaneously and  sincerely, that it is one of the  most stimulating get-togethers  he can remember - quite different to the dry, academic  discussions to which he is accustomed. We all echo the sentiment. It is a fitting coda to the  evening.  At last, it is time to part.  John Oliphant, anxious to capture it all on fjlm as well as tape,  takes numerous photographs  with his small, hair-trigger  camera and Yvonne takes some  flash-bulb shots with hers. Then  we say our good-byes. It has  been a night to remember, full  of cameraderie and goodwill -  one of those red-letter occasions  when, despite the day to day  traumas - the frequent disappointments and uncertainties of  the trade, I feel very content to  be a writer.

Sometimes too, it  may reinforce your opinions to  the contrary. Whatever side of  the issue you take, it is never a  bad thing to be able to see the  'other point of view, to understand the opposition.  And then there is the advertiser. Advertisers are the community newspaper's bread and  butter. Without them the paper  would not be able to exist. In  our community they are important because the good health of  pur local business means a better lifestyle for us all. When  businesses start to fold and people sell up and leave town, the  whole community suffers.  Local merchants are an in  tegral part of our community,  not just in the business sense but  as contributors to the fabric of  our society. They lend support  to local volunteers, to sports  teams, to numerous other 'good  causes'; they are parents and  neighbours, deserving of our  respect on many levels.  The community newspaper is  a true voice of the community;  it carries news that otherwise  would remain untold, it captures our history from week to  week and reflects the economic  health of our business community. With integrity and  good intentions the community  newspaper can be a valuable  member of that community,  and, perhaps most important of  all, it can give all who care  enough to write a letter, the  chance to let their ideas be  heard.  It might be an idea if the  United Nations were to  designate a "mea culpa" year  for the nations and peoples of  the world. Human nature being  what it is there can be few of us  without some skeleton of man's  inhumanity to man somewhere  in the closet of our history, and  for most of us it's not so far  back that it's been erased from  the collective memory.  The thought came to my  mind* while pondering the sad  case of Ernest Zundel and his  friends who cannot apparently  face up to the atrocities which  were done by some of the people of their nationality.  It's understandable to want  to shift the blame when things  go wrong to someone or  something else. It's a very  human fraility, one with which  we've all struggled with more or  less success. I suppose it's a  measure of maturity in nations  as well as individuals when they  can accept responsibility for  their actions, admit, "I was  wrong", and make reparation.  This, of course, Germany did  soon after the end of the war.  Egos, whether individual or  national, are such tender things  and the patterns of history  demonstrate the likelihood of a  strong leader using another race  or ideology as scrapegoat  following a time of national  humiliation. We see it happening in the U.S. and we should,  of course, be on the watch for a  rise of neo-Nazis.  It seems to be similar to the  self perpetuating syndrome we  see in individual behaviour; the  adult who was abused as a child  so often ends up abusing  his/her own children. It's so  difficult to break out of the pattern.  Closely following the Zundel  trial came the hostage taking at  the Turkish Embassy. One can  feel for the Armenians whose  persecution goes way back into  history, culminating with the  mass exodus in 1915; a crime  the Turkish people of today  want to forget, and the world,  collectively grieving for the  Jews, ignores the sufferings of  the Armenian people.  Perhaps if the attention of the  whole world were concentrated  on these and similar problems  which have been either swept  under the rug or, like the  Palestinians and Northern  Ireland, just left to fester,  something might be done to  overcome the inertia and find  solutions, especially if it wasn't  a case of good guys and bad  guys, but, "we are in this  together".  The territorial imperative is  as important to humans as it is  to animals and people deprived  of their'ancestral real estate are  not going to quietly fold their  tents nor be satisfied to stay  forever in dentention camps or  be second class citizens in someone else's country. Inevitably  the lack of action to find a solution to these problems will result  in acts of terrorism.  It's, a difficult emotional  balancing act; on the one hand  we shouldn't ever forget, nor  allow our children to forget, in  case history repeats itself, but at  the   same   time   children  shouldn't be burdened with the  guilt of their forefathers.  We can't go around throwing  stones at each other because we  all live in glass houses, even  though we must be eternally  vigilant to see that such  atrocities do not happen again  on whatever "righteous"  pretext.  A piece of doggerel which  was quoted to me as a child  comes to mind, "There is so  much good in the worst of us,  and so much bad in the best of  us, that it ill behoves any of us,  to find fault with the rest of  us  "i  THANK YOU  Bruce Carey, John Kavanagh,  Jim & Georgina Benger &  our fans.

Tourism show on the road  It's on to the Sportsmen's  Show in Vancouver this week  for the salmon sharks and the  Sunshine Coast Tourism  display.  "We decided to book in at  the Sportmen's Show because it  brings in the type of people who  are most likely to become repeat  visitors to our area," said  manager Anne Langdon. "We  have an excellent location���our  booth is directly across from the  popular casting pool. This,  combined with our travelling  salmon sharks, will attract a lot  of visitors."  The travelling salmon sharks  caused the committee a few problems in the past week, according to treasurer Art McGinnis. "When you're not in the  least bit interested in the little  devils they are there by the  million. Now that we are actively trying to catch them, there  isn't one to be found."  McGinnis said the display  planned for the Sunnycrest Mall  was cancelled because of the  lack of salmon shark, and the  promotion Easter Saturday in  the Trail Bay Mall had to go  without the star attraction - the  salmon sharks.  After the Sportsmen's Show  the promotion'goes on to Richmond Centre Mall. The staff  have been quite busy, Langdon  said, encouraging businesses to  take part in the display board.  The response was not quite up  to that received for the earlier  boat show entry.  "There is still some hesitancy  out there about the benefits of  our Coast wide promotion.

Craig indicated, however,  that residents who happen to  have a backhoe on hand or the  materials available can still do  their own installation, "as long  as the work is supervised by the  village".  ready to break out of their  winter cocoons to do a bit of  travelling, We should make certain they are constantly aware  of what the .Sunshine Coast has  to offer., so that they will visit us  first."

During the war, he served with the  occupational forces in Germany.  When he returned to Pender  Harbour in 1945, Ted worked  in logging. Later he started the  garbage pickup service, and ran  it until he began work for  Taylor's Store.  Ted's widow Helen is an active member of our community,  with the Hospital Auxiliary,  Lioness Club and the new  Kleindale Cemetery Society,  among other activities.

Coast News, April 10,1985  by Bud Mulcaster  successful twice  The Suncoast Breakers  Oldtimers Hockey Club played  successfully on two fronts this  past weekend. In Powell River  the Breakers "Dream Team"  played in a sixteen team 7-a-side  tournament and skated away  with their third consecutive  tournament win. The Dream  Team is made up of Breakers  Oldtimers bolstered by four  underage players (under 35).  They played in the top division  at Powell River against stiff  competition.  In their first two games the  Breakers  skated  to  relatively  easy   8-1   and   4-1    victories  against local Powell River teams  but* in the third game had to  come back from 2-0 and 3-1  deficits to earn a 3-3 tie against  a strong Dirty 30's team also  from Powell River. Top scorers  in round robin play were Dave  Lamb,    Ivan   Dixon,   Brian  Penrose  and   Steve  Feenstra,  assisted   by   some   excellent  playmaking by Kevin Haynes.  In the final, the Breakers faced a team made up of ex-Powell  River Regal players and squeaked out a narrow 2-1 victory.  Steady goaltending by Jim Gray  and an excellent defensive effort  by Laurie Short who also scored  a spectacular goal.sparked the  win for the Breakers, who were  awarded the Viva Trophy.  A fun weekend for all the  guys and, as usual, many thanks  go out to Ernie Fossett and the  Elphinstone Recreation  Association.  On the home front the  Breakers Oldtimers met their  crosstown rivals, the Sechelt  Wamimanas for their final exhibition game of the season.  The Breakers managed to get  revenge for their early season  loss by skating to a 7-4 victory.  The Breakers dominated early  and built-up a 5-0 lead on goals  by Clarke Hamilton, Pat  Cromie, Mike Ryan and two by  Sean Vanstrepen.  Andy Dube drew first blood  for the Wamimanas and scored  a second time early in the third  period. Two goals by Paul  Thompson made the score close  before Mark Paetkau and Ed  Lans put the game out of reach  late in the third period.  The Breakers will be travelling to North Vancouver In mid  April to play in their last tournament of the season, the Spring Chickens "Chicken Roost"  at the North Shore Winter  Club.  Both the Suncoast Breakers  and the Sechelt Wamimanas  have provided excellent  oldtimers hockey locally, particularly at last month's Suncoast Cup. They are both looking forward to bigger and better  seasons next year.  Eighteen of us took in a 10  game Singles Tournament at  Old Orchard Lanes last Sunday.  We didn't do too well money  wise, with Ed Riddoch winning  around $180, Arman Wold $42  and the rest of us zilch but we  had a good time and we'll get it  back next year.

Ten days of powerful  testimony had a jarring impact  on MP's who have just finished  a West Coast fisheries tour, says  Comox-Powell River MP, Ray  Skelly.  "We heard a lot of strong  statements from people who  clearly told the federal government; 'consult us before you  make decisions that affect our  lives'," Skelly, the NDP  fisheries critic, said at the end of  a ten day tour by the standing  committee on fisheries and  forestry.  Skeliy said many of the  fishing, native and environmental groups that spoke to the  committee condemned the signing of the Canada/USA salmon  interception treaty, which  drastically limits the catch of  Georgia Strait salmon and provides Alaskan fishermen with  unlimited access to salmon  spawned in northern Canadian  rivers.  . The committee also heard a  great deal of concern about proposed legislation to give the  fisheries minister the unfettered  right to allocate fish stocks to  specific user groups, Skelly said.  "On both these issues the key  word was consultation. The  government can't properly run  the fisheries from an ivory  ;tower in Ottawa," Skelly said.  Native groups were especially  concerned about consultation.  "Several native communities  ���literally had their fishery signed  out from under them by the  salmon interception treaty,"  Skelly said. "Believe me, they  had a lot to say about  Mulroney-style consultation.''  Skelly said he was impressed  by the presentation of conservation groups who stressed the  need for increased salmon  enhancement and keeping the  rivers livable for spawning  salmon. "The federal government, whether liberal or conservative, has always had a hard  time understanding the very  simple logic that if we clean up  the rivers and build more hatcheries, we can have enough  salmon   for   commercial   and  sports fishermen and the native  food fishery," Skelly said.  "However, I'm confident this  tour has jolted the Tory MP's  into reality. I don't think  they're going to forget the  lessons they learned here and we  can only hope they'll convince  their government colleagues  that the West Coast fishery requires immediate attention."  More than 60 witnesses spoke  to the committee at hearings in  Kamloops, Vancouver, Campbell River, Nanaimo and Prince  Rupert. The MP's returned to  Ottawa, April 3, and a report of  their findings is due in the summer.  Coast Gardener  Blueberries  Blueberries are delicious berries, and very winter hardy; in  fact they demand a period of  winter chilling to bear fruit properly. Their fruit ripens 60-90  days after blooming and then  needs another period of some  50-60 days to mature buds for  the following year's fruit.  They are slow to mature and  do not bear a full crop for some  six to eight years after planting,  though they do ripen some fruit  by the third or fourth year.

After three years they  start to grow faster, but older  plants are not good to set out  because the root systems are  very tender and the transplant  shock may kill them.  Any plant should be dug with  a good ball of soil around the  roots to protect it from shock.  Blueberries are self-fertile, but  the berries are often fatter and  more prolific if they are cross-  pollinated.  Blueberries in our area should  be given a spot in full sun; they  must be given conditions as  close to those in the wild as  possible. They thrive on lots of  humus, thick layers of mulch,  and natural fertilizers. They do  not do well with chemical fertilizers or spraying.  The best soil is a light loam,  plenty of acid humus and sand;  make sure the sand is not from  the seashore, since the berries  resent salt or alkali. Heavy clay  soils will not grow these plants  because their fine root system is  unable to penetrate the soil. Soil  should have a ph of 4. to 5., 4.5  being the best. The roots are  unable to utilize nitrates, but get  their nitrogen in the form of  ammonia. An acid soil allows  organisms .which , converjt  nitrates to ammonia to flourish  making it ail' ideal medium for  blueberries.  If your soil is alkaline work  acidic matter in to the soil at  least six months before planting. Use pine, fir sawdust, peat  moss, pine needles. If your soil  is incurably alkaline, plant your  blueberries in containers, with  four or five drainage holes in  the bottom, and filled with acid  leaf mold or peat moss mixed  half and half with soil.  Plant your blueberries early  in the spring; first dig in peat  moss or some other acidic matter into the top six inches of soil  so that it is in a two foot circle  where the plant is to stand. Set  the bush so that the root ball is  one to two inches below the surface of the soil. Give the plant a  six inch mulch of well rotted  sawdust immediately.  Trim the branches back when  planting, and remove all fruit  buds and short twigs and dead  wood. The soil should be kept  moist for the first year beneath  the mulch.

A very enjoyable Beaveree  was held on March 30 at Porpoise Bay Park when Katherine  Trueman and two leaders  brought 11 Beavers from the  Sixth Agnes Colony in Seymour  District in North Vancouver to  meet with 17 youngsters from  the First Gibsons Colony under  Sandy Tjensvold and two  assistants.  After an opening ceremony  the combined groups hiked  through the park trails on a tree  recognition and cone gathering  expedition.  The noon hour hotdog roast  was followed by games, crafts,  and sand castle building. A final  'mug up' around the camp fire  ended the outing.

Last week's winner was Jordan  Sugden, Box 692, Gibsons, who correctly located the golf ball  washer at the Sunshine Coast Golf Club.  On emergency equipment  Larry Penonzek, B.C.L.S.,  appeared before the April 2  Gibsons council meeting to ask  that council revert to its old  policy of dealing primarily with  local business.  Speaking to the council,  Penonzek said, "I'm definitely  committed to the town of Gibsons; I've spent eight and a half  years in the town, either in my  home or in business."  "This is important to all  businesses, not just mine," concluded Penonzek.  Mayor Laurente Labonte  assured Penonzek that the  council would look at the idea  of supporting local business in a  favourable light, pointing out  however that larger jobs would  most probably be offered for  tender.  Craig demands action  Alderman Graham Craig in a  report to council last Wednesday passed on an Emergency  Control Committee concern  that emergency equipment  presently stored in the basement  of St. Mary's hospital would  not be accessible if the hospital  itself should suffer some  calamity.

The hospital  itself is essentially a more  sophisticated advance treatment  centre so there is no sense in  having the equipment stored in  the same location said Craig.  At present there are two locations where less sophisticated  "casualty collection units" are  located���one in Pender Harbour and the other above the  Roberts Creek firehall.  It would only require storage  space equivalent to a small  bedroom to contain the advanced treatment centre, Alderman  Craig told the Coast News,  mentioning the Gibsons Marine  room as a possible site.  Craig pointed out that the  ECT has been trying for nearly  two years to get the equipment  moved to Gibsons, but for one  reason or another the Emergency Health Service (Ministry of  Health) responsible for such  equipment has yet to sanction  the move.  "There has been enough  pussyfooting around" said  Craig who stressed that the  equipment's relocation is integral to the ECT's Emergency  Plan.  <5  ��  ��  ��  ONE YEAR  NO INTEREST FINANCING  ���  On Approved Credit  20% Down Payment Required  Buy ANY ITEM jn tF|e store  during the month of April  (Valued at $500 or more)  with payments spread over one year, and pay  NO  INTEREST  ��� No Payment for 45 Days from Date of Purchase  itr  #**  If you buy a  CHESTERFIELD SUITE  Price  + Tax  $899.00  62.93  Total Cost  Down Payment  $961.93  -192.38  $769.55  Payments over 12 months  $769.71 -r 12 = $64.13  THEREFORE YOU HAVE A MONTHLY  PAYMENT OF $64.13 FOR 12 MONTHS!
