Food stores, had already decided that it was more suitable,  for them to close Mondays instead of Wednesdays. One reason is that there is no movement of food by truck on Mondays and secondly that the Wednesday holiday does not allow for the best distribution in  the store for food sales from  Thursday and over the week  end. There is also the trend of  having most national holidays  on a Monday which gives labor,  back-to-back holidays.   ,*  Those merchants who have  not made up their minds about  Monday closing plan v further  discussiohs^to see if there" cain .  be some form of' co-operation  amongst all merchants:; v   ���"���'..  \ In the hope of protecting watersheds and runoff areas in Regional^ . District forest areas,  members of the Regional District board decided at the board  meeting Thursday night to explore, the situation based on information they now have available through correspondence  with.gpverment officials.  Deploring the situation in Lions Bay. area recently when  heavy runoff created serious  flooding problems as the result  of heavy timber cutting at higher levels, Regional board members believed they had through  correspondence during the last  couple of  years a  base from  ��� which to'work out the problem  of timber cutting in watershed  areas.  Board members also noted  that the provincial parks department was establishing a considerable number of new parks in  the coastal area but having got  the land set aside was doing  nothing about improving them  for public use including those  on the Sunshine Coast.  Board members also noted  that a considerable number of  applications for land on Nelson  Island in West Lake area had  been advertised., In view of the  fact the board's zoning regulations ave not yet complete it is  expected the . board; will urge,  caution on part of the provincial  lands, department in .granting  such applications, before the Regional board, has its zoning completed. What, the board is concerned with. generally is .public,  access to waterfront facilities.  An application, for- water  lease in Garden. Bay area when  examined closely caused board  members to consider the application more deeply with the result that it was turned over to  the planning commitee for consideration and it was feared  that if the application, was al-.  lowed it would create difficulties  in access to other waterfront  properties.  . Two applications for Skook-  umchuck land on the north side  were also passed over. to ��� the  planning committee in view of  an earlier rejection of application for land in the same general area. '._.'.���:���'  Mayor Wally Peterson, Gibsons representative on the Regional, board offered the suggestion that waterfront leases  should be issued on yearly basis only. The Nelson Island  leases were reported to be chiefly on the waterfront of West  Lake and were being < applied  for in names of three or four  families of the Pender Harbor  area.  Vancouver, toTcost!$245,212.  The low tender on construction  work, submitted by A. J. Barr  of Victoria, was, withdrawn and  the water\committee decided to  return the company's bond owing to the nature of the. error  that had been made. \  The need.for a truck for the  waterworks, superintendent Gordon Dixon, was discussed, and  passed-on to the water committee to act on.  considei^^'the SiM-ei_i_^v^  individual :cq^  consent of their neighbors  . Yours truly, A. R. West,  Sunshine   Co-ist   Environment  Protection Society.      v  fire help  ���Gambier Island, reisidents  want a volunteer fire brigade  and asked the Regional board  for?help. The Regional board has  suggested that first 4be provincial fire marshal should be approached for advice as to the  type of service, required.  In the meantime the board's  secretary will ascertain the assessment values of the area to  be covered. The request arises  from a fire which occurred early in the summer.  And fhe rains came!  Very little rain fell on the Sunshine Coast during the first two  weeks of September. From then on it really rained in earnest. In  one week alone from the 16th to the 22nd total rainfall was enough  to beat all existing records for the month of September, as indicated in the September statistics.     ,  Sept. 69  Normal  Extreme  Total Rainfall  -   ������1*"  2.97"  :    9.16" (69)  .82    (65)  Days with rain ���.  14  6  14        <69)  Hig&estTemperattire (10th)  . :74  77  84        (63)  Lowest Temperature; ;(15th)  40  4i '.  35        (61)  Mean Temperature  56  56  62        (63)  Total precipitation from .January 1 to September!-30, 1969 is  37.22 inches.; Normal for this period is 36.09 inc-ies.  Regional District board member Director Frank West reporting to the. Regional board on  the union of B.C. Municipalities'  convention revealed that in conversation with an official of the  hospital division of the health  department, he learned that hospital authorities were showing  a tendency for smaller clinics  in areas remote from established  hospital services.  This he suspected could result  In Pender Harbor obtaining the  type of (first aid clinic it was  seeking. However there was nothing official about it so Pender  Harbor would have to wait and  see.  PARCEL RATES UP  Parcel post rates for overseas  destinations have all increased,  information supplied by the post  office reveals. The increase is  dated to start Oct. 1. It is also  announced that the air mail  parcel post rate has been abolished; All such parcels now go  first class mail.   ..   ,  .���..; ���; ������,���.-.'  Editor: My family and I have  felt a deep concern about the  impending underground .ratpmic;  test on Amchitka Island. Last  night we sent the following.telegram to President Richard Nixon of the United States:    -  "As American citizens living  in Canada we feel a double responsibility to protest the proposed atomic tests scheduled for  Thursday in the Western' Aleutians. The fact that the two-gov-  ernhients have issued protests  should be reason enough to call  off such tests, let alone the  chance of endangering human  life and property around the Pacific Rim. It is one thing, to be  God1, and quite another;to play  God. We urge you to call off  the tests."     ,  We are much more concerned  about the threat to human life,  but know from experience that  property is equally if not more  important to the U.S. government. Therefore we gave them  equal billing in the telegram.  For more than- 20 years we  have been protesting, along with,  millions of  other humans,  nu-  year.  -; -We '������' protested    against    the  bomb by joining the PTA, voting, and making with placards  T Wtat Twas;a]^ cause  in the early 1950s became the  majority, cause by -the early  1960s; resulting finally in the  test Jban treaty.       T  But the bomb got bigger, and  went underground: One nation,  outside the treaty, discovered  how to make the bomb and continued testing.  The U.S. government keeps  telling the worldv what a boon  atomic energy is. We have yet  to see a boon that offsets its  evils. Fear arid death in monstrous proportion were introduced at its birth, and continue to  haunt the human race. The horrendous example of Nagasaki  and Hiroshima, like the ghost of  MacBeth, remain with us. The  burned- 'bodies, the blobs of human' flesh, the skeleton of school  buildings with the silent echo  of the voices of atomized children���air are etched on our  memory.  . No, we do not want a repeat,  nor dp we wish to hear a doctor  pronounce a death sentence on  our grandchildren '������ "radiatioh  sickness," "leukemia," because  we 'sat on our hands1 or "were  afraid to act. .  Frank Fuller,  Doris Fuller.  .Don't forget the Boy Scout  bottle drive in aid of Brothers  Memorial Park. It:- takes place  Saturday. First Gibsons Scouts  and Wolf Cubs have decided to  make their first bottle drive this  season for the benefit of improvement for all youngsters of  , the park grounds:     :   -  Those desiring^ to take their  bottles to the Scouts can do so  by leaving them at the Super-  Valu store, Sunnycrest Plaza, or  they can call Mr. ,Ozzie Hincks  at 886-9392 and arrangements  will be made for the pickup.  'This drive has been- organizedby the committee in^charge  of development of the park. The  committee consists of a dozen  community-minded citizens who  have  the  park's: future, under  consideration      .  The board of trustees of Brothers Memorial Park gathered  this committee together to help  in the development of the park.  The board has indicated its appreciation of the work by the  Kiwanis club and Gibsons Athletic Association for their continuing efforts and hope their con  full support will also be given  the newly formed development  board. It is also hoped that all  users of the park will assist  financially and with labor in  further development.   T  The committee is composed of  12 members, Jim" Drummond,  Bill Scott, Gene Yabionski, Dick  Gaines, Len Wray, Larry La-  bonte,Terry Connor, Fred Holland, Bill Wright, Ozzie Hincks,  Lome Wolverton and Gil Musgrove.   ...        ;.-,-7. ,;  ., _       Coast News,  Oct.  1, 1969.  - Higl* be<ef for some years?

The numbers racket appears to be holding its own in today's  monetary situation as revealed by continued demands for more and  more in order to get less and less. Consider the days of the 50 cent  haircut on a $200 a month and then think of today's $2.50 haircut  on a $400 plus monthly salary.  Paul Einzig, famous writer on economics in a book on How  Money is Managed, recalls the John Law experiment in France  between 1718 and 1720 which provided an instance of the changing  value of currency which we today are undergoing. His idea was to  strengthen confidence in his paper money by^ trying to discredit  gold and silver coins. He sought to achieve this by frequent changes in the value of coins in terms of paper money, as a contrast with  the so-called stability of the nominal value of his notes. Between  September 1719 and December 1720 he changed' the.value of gold  coins on 28 occasions and that of silver 'coins on 35, in an effort  to induce holders to rid themselves of such so-called unstable currency and seek safety in converting their coins into his so-called  stable notes. The disastrous failure of the experiment shows that  monetary policy is helpless in the face of economic forces brought  about by large scale inflation, the Einzig excerpt concludes.  Canada has debased its coinage in cheapening the metal,content and is now offering a nine-year double your money savings  bond which replaces the last year's 13-year double your money  gimmick.  Any effort to equate the federal economic council's forecast of  a wonderful world in 1975 with the double-your-money-in-nine-years  type of bond is difficult. Perhaps we are missing the point. If so  will someone please explain. We are open to any sound advice on  the situation. By 1975 we may be talking about a $2.50 haircut in  the same vein that we noygtelkto^  need the trunk of our hi|^ (&^  inflated wages in order to take them h  Ob leaving Britain   v  With laggard step and backward glance  We entered old Vic Station.  The morn was dull, 'twas pur last chance  To see that grande olde nation.  At Gatwick Airport we detrained  Amidst its throng of mortals.    .  But 'twas not long ere we emplaned,  Too quick, they closed the pottals.  The motors roared, we were airborne,  Our plane rose like a thrush. ,  Aloft, through window, we, forlorn,  Watch^ England, quite ahush.  Its country side with all its grace,  Its rivers slow and limpid,  Passed far too quickly by that space,  That land, 'neath clouds, soon hid_  It Reined hot long 'til we were home  And family all embraced.  We'll long remember our fair roam  Our course, on maps, well traced.  _B_.Iv.___.

Beef prices will probably remain at their" present high level  for- some years to come',Taccord-  ing  to the Bank  of Montreal.  In its September BusdnesSjReT  view the B of M surveyslxrends  in Canadian meat prices through  out the 1960's. The underlying  market 'Situation for all types  of meat can' be explained in  terms of the relative ability of  supply to respond to, and adjust  to, rapidly rising demand, the  bank says. In the future, poultry  and pork production should keep  pace with demand but beef production may not.  In the three month period,  from April to June of this year,  the index of average beef prices rose nearly 20 percent, more  than it had in the previous three  years. The climax was a 12.7  percent increased in June: 7;  The sixties were prosperous  for most Canadians, says the B  of M. Between 1960 arid 1968,  personal disposable income \on  a per capita basis rose 54 percent, from $1,408 to $2,168. With  the increase in earnings came  an increase in meat consumption.   -    ' .7.7 7 :^y'i  From 1960 to 1968, per capital  beef consumption rose 24 percent, poultry consumption 43 per  cent - probably because chicken remains among the cheapest  of meats. Pork consumption  varies from year to year but  has remained in the same general range.  While beef consumption has  increased at a rate of 4.2 percent per year since I960, cattle  numbers increased annually up  to 1966 and then declined at a  rate of one percent per year  up to, the present time.  The cattle industry is a continental market and both Canadian  and American demand affect the  situatbin. In the U.S. too,demand  is growing rapidly in relation to  supply. At present, 3 percent  of the Canadian herd is exported to the U.S. but this could  change substantially if supply  pr demand in either country  veers sharply from the norm.  Beef is not a product which  is readily conductive to rapid  supply increases. One reason is  biological: the gestation period  is nine months and iriiulti-bifths  are virtuaily nbn'-existant. Secondly, the cattle are usually  two years old before they're  available for slaughter br/7 for  . breeding. T  Neither hog nor poultry production has experienced the  same difficulty in adjusting to  demand. Over the decade, hog  numbers have been increasing  at an average rate of approximately 1.5 percent per year. . .  The industry has Undergone important structual changes in recent years . . . The emergence  of large production units has  resulted in economies of scale.  The poultry industry is most  flexible in adapting supply to  demand. Birds are marketable  within months of hatching and  improved technology has increased efficiency of the industry.  Chicken production rose 43 percent frona 1961 to 1968, meeting  demand and keeping prices  down.    Government'  estimates  Pbitilof law  (By a Practicing Lawyer)  Copyright applied for  Q. How is a jury in a criminal  case chosen at the trial and who  may the lawyers object to?  'A. It is the duty of the sheriff  to have sufficiant persons present at the commencement :o| the  ������ itri^tfttSin ^__om--f^jOTy^sJic^i^  ,' chosem^^Either^  (through Ms lawyer, the defeiicl  counsel)    or   the   government  (tthrpuh   their,   lawyer,    crown  counsel) ; may firstly challenge  thie ^entirearray - that is all the  potential jurors present. To do  this, they must assert.that the  sheriff failed in his duty on one  or more of three    grounds  or  challenges: partiality, fraud, or  wilful    misconduct in selecting  ,the jury 'panel'.' The judge tries  this matter, and either directs  that  they have  been  properly  chosen, or dismisses the paneU  and in this case ia new panel,  would have to be chosen. This  procedure is very rare.  The panel is then called according to how their names appear on cards shaken up in a  box by the sheriff. As members  of the panel come forward they  may be challenged or accepted  by defence counsel. The accused  has 20, 12 or 4 peremptory challenges. Defence counsel may exercise up to 20 challenges if the  charge is a capital one - that is,  one for which the accused may  be sentenced to death; up to 12  challenges if the charge is one  for which the accused could be  sentenced to five or more years  of iiniprisoment, arid up to 4 challenges in all other caseS.A peremptory challenge is one for  which no reason need be given.

Name not on panel, 2.  Member not .indifferent to the  case. 3. Member haying been  convicted of an offence for  which he was sentenced to death  or to term of imprisonment of  oyer 12 months, 4. Member beting an alien, or,5. A member being physically unable to perform  his duties. There is a procedure  -then followed for trying the case  whether the challenges for cause  are valid or not.  After the jurors are chosen  the trial commences and the accused is, it is to be hoped, in  the hands of a jury of his peers-  "Twelve good men and true".  Memos to remember!

The immunity usually persists  for life.  The vaccine has been shown  to be 99% effective in trials  -with thousands of children, most  will experience no reaction to  the vaccine.  Your child should not receive  vaccine for the following reasons:   ���;..  Sensitivity-to eggs, feather or  chicken protieri. The vaccine is  prepared in chick embryo tissue .culture and children may  experience an allergic reaction  if sensitive to the above; previous , substantiated measles infection; eczema, and children  receiving corticosteroid ined_-  cation.  Vaccination should be deferred  if your child has* received gamma globbin, blood, or plasma  durring the preceding 6 weeks.  Vaccination should be deferred  for 4 - 6 weeks if your child has  recetly had (immunization ^  against poliomyelitis or has had  dren with a fever. If your child  has had a convulsion due to fever please contact your own physician befre comming to the clinic.  Special points about measles  infection: -  In North America, measles  infection is seldom -fatal. However, this virus infection lowers  the resistance of the mucous  membranes to invasion by other"  bacteria and may lead to pneumonia, infection of the sinuses,  or infection of the middle ear.  Although fortunately quite rare,  encephalitis following measles  infection can occur.  Themeasles virus is transmitted directly by droplets spread  by close contact, i.e. coughing,  sneezing, talking etc. Most infections are spread during the  ambulent period and before.the  appearance of the rash.  Children at home and at school  .are the main spreaders. Meas-  ' les is chiefly a disease of under  fives; In Canadian communities  the virus of measles is wide-;;  spred and always present, from  time to time it reaches epidemic  proportion.

Paul St. Pierre,- Liberal member of eoast-Chilcotin constituency iri the house of commons  and Minister without Portfolio  Hon. Isabel Dawson assured  Mayor Wally Peterson that they  would do all they could to help  the Sunshine Coast in its tourism program.    ������  Mayor Peterson met both political figures at Powell River  last week during a meeting at  which a regional plan to boost  B.C.'s tourist industry was outlined to leaders of 30 municipalities in the southwestern section  of the province.  Called the Mainland - Southwest, the 12,000 square mile region will extend from Lund to  White Rock, east to Boston Bar  in. Fraser Canyon and north "to  Pemberton and Garibaldi region.   ��� ��� ������/������:,  ��� /-.'.���������;���  ������'-������  Alderman Ken Crosby will be  the Gibsons representative on  the 30 municipality setup. He  was asked by Mayor Wally Peterson to. be chairman on behalf of . Gibsons municipality.  Mayor Peterson, who was ac-,  companied by Aid. Gerry Dixon, reported the meeting was  quite useful. The next meeting,  in a month's time, will be held  at Coquitlam.  Mike Overiell, who y was appointed regional co-ordinator for  Mainland-Southwest, said it is  supported by the provincial government and ���-by the Greater  Vancouver Visitors and Convention bureau.  Jim Bensly, general manager  : of the   bureau,   said   the   new  name is designed to attract the  public to an area that has every  variety of interest. ,  Avstylized M in green and blue  with a directiorial arrow is- the  Mainland--^ti_west symbol.  Tourism wi% be BJC.'s greatest revenue producer before the  end ofr4;h�� next decade,; Ovenell  predicted. 7 r  Research Yshowed visitorsy  spend only h_df the time theyy  would normally spend because  * there are fewer opportunities to  , become actively involved in  high revenue-generating activities. '  Discussing the advantages of  a four-season tourist trade.Ove-  nell said July and August are  peak months. Substantial gains  have been made during summer  months arid the peak has now  been reached two months earlier  and will last a month later.  Over the past five years the  spring increase has grown and  more than doubled the over-all  tourist growth. Here the weather is generally with- us and  the potential" for tourist growth  truly exists. %  Winter gains are also encouraging. The sleeping giant of  skiland is beginning to stir and  offers in my view, one of the  best opportunities we have for  providing a year round base to  our visitor industry.' ...  The fall pattern is disappointing. We have odviously not yet  found a way to effectively encourage fall tourism.  Mainland-Southwest, he said,  was designed to encourage a  family of municipalities involving Powell River, Secheit, Gibsons and some 27 or more other  municipalities.

By  now  my  northern lily-whiteness had, under the steady gaze of the hot  Mexican sun, yielded to a less  conspicuous    southern    browhi-  ness. It was on the beaches of  Mazatlan, just south of the Tropic of Cancer on the west coast,  that I had begun my full bodily  tain, as well as being initiated in  to  other  interesting  facets   of  [Mexican   life.   Fortunately   for  me, I'd met a fisherman on the  bus from Los Mochis to Mazatlan, who directed me to a casa  de  huespedes  (literally,   house  of hospitality)' which proved to  be a very fine, cheap place to  stay. This man was most informative. As we rolled but on the  highway from Los Mochis, past  fields of sugar cane, corn and  tomatoes,   he  told  me  of  the  coast   and   the  sea   which   he  loves so much. We were interrupted as the driver beeped at  several farm carts weaving erratically across both lanes  of  the road. I learned this man was  a  diesel  mechanic  on   shrimp  trawlers in Mazatlan now. He  had spent most of his 50 or so  years: of life on .the s^a,,; be.it,  fishing  tuna  out of Ehseriada,  . anchovies in Pefui of oil freighters in South America or the east  coast of North America.  Consequently it was the,coastal states such as Sonbra, Nayar-  it and Sinola that he spoke of  most frequently and enthusiastically. He explained the people  of north west Mexico are taller  than those in the mountain  states, Guanajuato," Mexico and  Oaxaca. As to the women, on  the cbast they are dark haired  and blonde, but not brunette, he  said. Overall the women are taller and slimmer and more beautiful, he stated emphatically  and I laughed at his unreserved  enthusiasm. Later in Mazatlan  when I strolled about with him  of a humid, scented evening, he  was wont to point out "nice wct-  mans" to me as they went by.  "He's a-nice woman; that"one,"  he would say, nodding, in her  direction. And I .had to agree,  he was quite right and how nice  it was. that, female beauty was  so well recognized and appreciated .by him. It was just a niqe  natural statement for him to  make.  Reboarding the bus after supper at Culiacan, capital of Sin-  aloa, we were joined by a new  passenger. Clutched in one  hand, a bundle of rods, in the  WANTED  Used furniture or what  have you.

Phony   blue  captain's hat, gaudy shirt over  bermuda .shorts   swelled   with  protruding belly, and a boyish  grin completed the  picture.  A  little commotion while he oversaw  the  safe  stowage  of  his  rifles and general safari- gear.  Seating rhimself he turned' and  tapped iiis cigarette box at me,  asking if he could smoke in sign  language.   He flattered me by  mistaking me for a Mexican. I  probably^ lacked    the    glaring  gringo identification he sought.  When X spoke English he acted  most relieved. Said he had no  idea there was such a cheap (20  pesos) fine bus to Mazatlan, and  he paid 350 pesos to come the  same route in a taxi. When we  arrived in Mazatlan, he couldn't  find his luggage, right away so  he yelled "Stupido!   I call the  policio!" and had the driver call  back to Calican. If he'd waited  patiently like everyone else he  would have received it, in firn,  In  the baggage  claim  department, where it was eventually  found. I heard no apologies. He  called a taxi and the bemused  driver loaded his guns and rods  and took the Great White Hunter home. I had seen my first  fea cara or ugly face;    .  I awoke to the sound of Penny Lane "in my eyes and in my  ears'' with children beating  time to it in the courtyard below. From the hotel roof I visually embraced my first tropical  town: Mazat_anY->AY sun-baked  resort town impressed itseiLf upon me, from the twin yellow  church spires to the palm trees,  to the beckorimgYblue Pacific.  That is, it is a resort town to  me. To the inhabitants it is a  place to live, a shrimp trawling  port and a tomato growing area  My mechanic Yfiiendv Senor  Abbud, who had directed me to  this1 inexpensive hotel (30 pesos)  now called me and said there  was room at the casa de huespedes where he stays. Sos soon  I was in a very friendly household. My room bordered a small,  open-air courtyard filled with  the color, and fragrance of banana, papaya, guana, pear and  avocado trees, plus roses and  daisies.' The rcourtyaid.~ was a  surprise, as from the street one  sees only a' whitewashed wall  broken by an entranceway.  I passed some pleasant days '.  there, getting to know the fam-  ayan$-I_e chara^ .,  ermah-mechanic friend. The patriarch' a retired civil engineer  who had designed the Mazatlan  sea wall, his gentle-faced wife,  two lovely daughters and several grandchildren completed the  family. The father had begun  his career in San Francisco,  where he learned English, then  returned to live in and help  build Mazatlan. Now he was  semi-retired, just running this  * casa he huespedes.  Senor Abbud,  a  young  electrical engineer and I took our  meals just across the street at  the house of a widow. She cooked excellent Mexican food for  us  at a very reasonable price  -.{about $io per week). It was  there that I was introduced to  enchiladas,    gorditas,    tortillas,  frijolesj tacos, carnitas, oporto  wine  and  tequila.  These interesting dishes developed my taste  for Mexican food, though I avoided things with too much chili  in ;them,  to the amusement of  the cook. But chili, which comes  in different varieties, some less  hot, has much .vitamin C. "Too  much   vitamin  C"   said  Senor  Abbud, for emphasis in his imperfect- English. .Without it the  slum   dwellers   around Mexico  City would be less healthy he  said.: For them,  there is little  more  than tortillas  and beans  seven days a week.  The days passed with trips to  Senor Abbud's shrimp plant, to  the beaches and in the courtyard learning Spanish from the  elder daughter, who., I agreed,  was a maesitra7 bonita. On the  way to the shrimp plant Senor  Abbud had shown me a tortilla  factory. The girl workers asked  us "Que quiere?" or what do  yoii want? Senor Abbud replied,  "To see the factory and to see  you." The girls giggled.  At the dock, Senor Abbud  took me below decks in a steel  shrimp trawler to show me a  fish powder machine -��� the type  he overhauls. These machines  grind up the junk fish (sharks,  rays, etc.) and their powder is  used for chicken feed and possi  bly fertilizer. The shrimps, as  big or bigger than our prawns,  are feed into the hatch. But the  shrimps are scarcer and the  season catches are about one-  quarter as big as they were four  or five years ago.  Before I left, Senor Abbud  and I bought some beer while  Carlos, the electrical .engineer,  bought some tequila. We assembled at the widow's place and,  with an abalone salad, began  imbibing.    Tequila    is    taken  straight with lemon squeezed in  it. A bit Of salt is licked off the  back of the hand, chased by the  tequila; the glass drained. Later  we went to a beach dance spot  and listened ,.to marimba music.  One hears its tu-Minig melodies  in the afternoon. Later on, iri  the evening, one can be serenaded by the table-4wanderinig mari-  achi singers and hear such lively tunes as Guadalajara! Guadalajara ! Music is pervasive in  Mexico -���in buses, restaurants,  bars, houses, streets. The people's ears are filled with music.  Such a change for me from the  silent north where one feels utterly alone dnf   a   vast,   miitel  ��� world:   .  The next day, after a fish  (white snapper) lunch in 7 my  honor at the casa de huespedes,  I rushed off to my bus to Guadalajara.  And   so,   through   the  "rear window of the bus, Mazatlan receded in space and time,  though still, uppermost in my  mind. It was  a tiring,  warm,  v and sticky journey in a crowd1-  ���ed bus.
