 Provincial Library,  Victoria, E, C.  Printed and Published at Gibsons, B.C.  10c per copy  Volume 28. Number 33; September 3. 1975.  OPEN AREA REDESIGNED  Students see changes in schools  Students at Elphinstone Secondary, and Gibsons anid Roberts-Creek Elementary schools  .will see some changes when  they return to school.  The biggest change will be  encountered by Ephinstone students who move into an entirely neiw section that replaces  rooms lost in the 1973 fire.  . "-The new areas will house administration offices, library,  home economics, art, music,  health and luhe_.rooms._ The  gymnasium is also new. These  rooms surround a paved inner  courtyard that will be landscaped and 'available as an additional instruction ''area in  good weather.  The shop wing on .the west  side of the building and thfc  science and commercial wing  on the east were not destroyed  in the fire.  Building and Grounds Superintendent Bob Rutter has  as  sured the sdhool board that the  building would be usable al-:  though some areas will require  finishing. The school will also  haye new playing fields to  which many students gave  their time and effort last summer.  .At Gibsons Elementary, the  controversial open area has  been completely redesigned. It  how consists of a central air  conditioned * library - resource  centre and seven classrooms.  Lighting and ventilation have  been improved in this area.  The board has recognized the  tremendous efforts of Bob Rutter in ensuring that the three  projects were essentially completed in time for school. His  responsibility was particularly  heavy in the Gibsons Elementary and Roberts Creek Elementary projects which were  carried but under his supervision in a tight time schedule.  The board also commends mem  bers of the maintenance "crew  for their work in getting the  facilities ready in time for  school.  Due to increased enrolment  Roberts Creek school will have  two, new classrooms this year.  One will be used for kindergarten 'and the other for a grade '  one class. The library has been  relocated into a much larger  area and fences have been res- .  tored  around the~ playground- y-  area; Y "  A  fencing  project  has  also  been completed at Sechelt Elementary. The steel wire, mesh ,  has  a  longer  life  expectancy ^  than the previous fence. School  *.  grounds at. West, Sechelt have ^  been   fenced   along   the   road  boundaries providing a necessary safety factor.   . j  Madeira Park school grounds  (Continued on Page _)  WELIiiTypu see, officer, ther��  was this hiorse in front of Molly's Reach the other day and  he had makeup on and he was as if Mr. Ed, the talking horse,  talking and ... no, you would- is not the only movie star  n't believe it. Anyway, it seems    thanks to the Beachcombers.  The R^pnal board is not  happy withthe provincial lands  department because in the  words of one regional director,  "they are flouting their  own  lands branch 'flouting own policy'  ower  policy.''  Information released by Regional Director John MeNevin  at a board meeting last Thursday indicated the provincial  lands department had given  the go-ahead for a Gaipbier  Island development to coin-  mence on property originally  included, in the Agricultural  Land Freeze Act.  Referring to the Lands De-  principle. He said the Gambier  Island community planning  committee was opposed to the  development.  7. The board had earlier indicated to the developer that only  development on the non-agri-  tultural uplands area of thf  property would be approved.  The board will ask the Lands  Department to hold off any decision until a community plan  MAIN HALLWAY  at Elphinstone Secondary, still occupied  with workmen and equipment   as of last week  Save our Salmon project reports success  A group of ten students ���  Kathy Anderson, David Brackett, Bill Jamieson, Mike Jackson, Brenda McKenzie, Rod-  rigo Camposano, John Hobson,  Georeia Rhodes, Allan Stewart  and D. J. Hauka ��� were involved in an Opportunities for  Youth project called "Save Our  Salmon" this sumsmer.  The following is a summary  of the summer's work of the  project:  The goals of our project were  to clear creeks on the Sechelt  Peninsula of log jams and other  v debris that could cause hin-  [drance to spawning fisfh. Most  vi6f the labor was done by hand  and with band tools. Towards  the end of the summer we acquired the use of a chain saw  which greaty enhanced our performance on log jams.  While clearing these creeks  we were under the direction of  Fisheries Department officers  Bat Mulligan arid Ray Kraft  The officers advised us as to  -what was required on each  creek and the locations.  By the end of the summer we  had attained all the goals of  our project. We completed all  the projects (log jams mainly)  on all the creeks as advised by  Mr. Mulligan and Mr. Kraft.  The rigorous work load of  our proj ect was shared fairly  equally among the group. It  should be noted that throughout the summer the girls work  ed just as hard and put as  much effort into the project  as the boys.  We obtained support for our  project from several community sources. We received a loan  from A & C Rental in Madeira  Park of two wheelbarrows for  two "weeks and the rental of a  come-along (a winch type device) for one week. Harbour  Concrete delivered1 several  bags of concrete to us while  we were building baffles at  Sakinaw Lake. From Mr. Newman of Roberts Creek we ob  tained the nse of a boat for  two weeks. The Department of  Forestry loaned us two PVs for  a week to assist in moving  heavy logs. Jamieson Automotive loaned us an outboard motor for two weeks. To all these  sources we are very grateful  for their assistance throughout,  the summer.  We Would also like to make  a special note of the tremendous assistance, the knowledge,  time and equipment that came  from Fisheries Officers Ray  (Continued on Page 4)  ^*��* ^ejffnemployment^  Commission and Canada .Man.-  power are causing unnecessary  hardships on the Sunshine  Coast by classing this a "resort area."  This is the feeling of regional board directors who feel  that both the government agen  cies are not making proper representation on the Sunshine  Coast. Both UIC and Manpower offices for this ares are located in Powell River and officers attend an office in Se-;  chelt only once every two  weeks.  Directors expressed concern  at last Thursday's board meeting because a large number of  applicants for unemployment  insurance from' this area are  apparently being turned down.  Some people are forced to go  on welfare or move away from  the Coast, tlie board noted.  Indications are that both the  UIC   and   Canada   Manpower  are planning to locate staff in  this area on a more permanent  basis.  paii;ment7_^ec^ion^ worked  said he:'wasYridt prepiared to     out.

No SCRD aid on land appeal  Members of Gibsons Council  raised eyebrows quizzically  Tuesday night wondering why  the Sunshine Coast Regional  Board planning committee opted for a "no comment" on a  village appeal to have land  taken out of the agricultural  land reserve for anew public  works yard.  The village is presently involved in an appeal to the Provincial Lands Department to  have part of District Lot 1313  removed from the land reserve  so the present School Road  public works yard may be  moved to this site. The property owned by the village, located at the junction of Henry  and Reed roads already houses  water reservoirs.  Aid. Kurt Hoehne said it was  in the best interest of the taxpayer that the public works  yard be moved because the  present School Road site is  prime property and no longer  large enough for public works  purposes.  "It is unfortunate the Regional District could not be in favor of this," Hoehne said.  (Mayor Larry Labonte asked"  what, the implications  of  the  "no comment"  were.  He  said'  you  either  approve  of something or you disapprove ol it.  Council's speculations remain  wide open.

Phorie 886-2622        PO Box 460, Gibsons, B.C  A bark or a bite  It's time for regional district directors to sink their  teeth into the dog problem.  Every few montlis Sunshine Coa_t residents can be  assured of a dog story ��� about some child or adult  having been bitten by a vicious dog. Such a story is increasingly becoming a tragic deja vu.  It is becoming quite clear to residents and political  representatives alike that one of the Sunshine Coast's  major problems is that of stray dogs. One regional director has even admitted that it isn't even safe to walk  to the store anymore.  Well, then, let's stop pussyfooting around.  The board's detail planning committee recently held  a lengthy discussion on the dog problem and has subse-  for the control of dogs in the region,  qutently   made   recommendations   staltkig   the   regional  board proceed with the development of a leash by-law  That's not tackling the problem head on.  First of all, the average dog owner would probably  turn thumbs down at the idea of having to run along the  beach or in the park with Rover on a leash.  Secondly, what about the strays? Who will put them  on a leash? Or who will do anything about it if they are  not on a leash?  Both Gibson�� and Sechelt RCMP have already indicated they are ndt really interested in issuing warrants  for the arrest of deviant canines.  It appears then the regional district would be responsible for enforcing its own leash, bylaw. If an officer had to be hired to make sure that dogs in public are  attached to a leadh, woudn't it be logical to go one step  further and appoint that person as dog catcher?  ���*'  Director Kurt Hoehne pointed out at the aforementioned planning meeting, almost any action taken to control dogs in the area would require a proper pound and  staff to run the operation. Wouldn't! the whole process of  acquiring a dog leash bylaw then be a waste of time and  money?  Regional District Chairman Prank West has said the  regional board would make a lousy dogcatcher. Perhaps,  but the board i_ in a better position to take on that task  than anyone else.  The SPCA has made it known it is a society for the  prevention of cruelty to animals and not in the business  of dog control. The provincial government has made it  clear that the Domestic Animal Protection Act is for the  pi^crtection of domestic animals and not for people.  What we need here is a means to prevent cruelty  to the residents of the Sunshine Coast. We therefore urge  the regional district to seriously consider adopting the  function of dog control ��� a function that would include  full participation of the villages of Gibsons and Sechelt.  We're all in together  In early August a teen-ager was asked to record  what he would remember most about h_s summer camp  experience. His comment was arresting: "I learned," he  said, "that justice doesnt mean 'just us'."  Those are good words to remember on Labor Day.  Nobody likes strikes; they are disruptive and fru_trat-  ing to everyone, but every purchaser of groceries for a  growing family feels the impact of inflation where it  hurts. The postman or factory worker has to feed his  children just as the banker or civil servant, and a dollar  will stretch only so far, whatever our stations.  There are -5 million people in Canada today living below the poverty level and 2/3 of them are the  working poor. A good deal of talk and experimentation  with the concept of a guaranteed annual income is going  on ��� a scheme that would help these minimum wage  earners enormously. It's worth examining, rather than  hotly rejecting it out "of hand.  While it's true that pensioners and others on fixed  incomes from investment are also caught in the ever-  escalating squeeze, not many scream when interest rates  rise and owned houses double in value.  In short, we are all in this financial spiral together  and until someone, somewhere., finds a way out of the  frightening maze, patience and a willingness to examine facts are something each of us can contribute to an  admittedly frightening economy. The youngster's comment is pertinent. Justice is not 'just us.'  The neatest euphemism pf  the week turned up in the Financial Post, Canada's answer  to. the Wall Street Journal.   *  Iri a front page column containing a general justification  of profits in the world of business, the paper ' conceded that  gi^en last year's unstable con--  ditions anduncertaincommodity prices, "it may be that some  firms in vsome industries were  too quick to keep ahead of rising costs" is the most pleasing  synonym for windfall profits  that has yet appeared and it  comes embellished wit[__ an innocent, or at least viable motive.  It is unfortunate that at a  time when economists and business analysts are calling for investment in Canadian production to take the edge off inflation, profits should be under  fire. However, it's understand  able. Anyone who jeads the  fine print of the finanlcial page  of the newspapers ��� and everyone should ���- can check the  "Earnings" column and find  himself nodding in agreement  over the current high rate of  profits iri many fields."  -- In spite of the fact that private business must know it has  a large public relations job  ahead of it, statements* from  corporation officials have not  really helped too much. W. J.  Tough, the appropriately-named president of the Mining Association of B.C. says, "There  is no such thing as windfall  profits, regardless of politics.*'  Regardless of semantics, that  statement is not calculated to  win sympathy among the readers of the "Earnings" column  and it ignores the problem as  seen from the bottom. For one  thing it is not possible to dis  regard politics in this matter  because that is one of the  means at the disposal of the  man on the street, whose profits decreased last year while  . those of the member companies of the mining association increased. . s  Another corporate statement  which is not apt to sit well with  the general public -was made  by T. M. Gait, president of the  Sun Life Assurance Company  pf Canada, who said that the  rapid growth in government  expenditures and the money  supply had been the major  causes of inflation. "We must  press for real economies in the  operations of our governments  and institutions and be ready  to make and accept the sacrifices these may entail," he said  at his company's annual meeting.  Regardless of the assumption  about government ^expenditure  there is something almost ludicrous in this statement by a  well-fed, well-paid executive,  calling for sacrifices from everyone, which includes the person netting $500 or less a  month.  Even  newspaper  columnists  sometimes  seem far  removed  from the scene of action. Not  long ago. a commentator, from  Montreal asserted, that Mi"  Stanfield coud not ^get the  ��� public really aroused over inflation because "despite higher  prices on all .sides, they can  still buy more." He later said  the same thing, by iway of emphasis, to wit: "There has been  a change involving inflation,  reducing public consciousness,  of it as a great problem."  One can only ask, where  has he been? Certainly not in  the grocery store. Certainly not  trying to rent a house with  three children and a dog. He  doesn't even own a dog, or the  50 percent increase in the price  of dog food would have said  something to him.  One of the troubles with general economic pronouncements  of this sort is that they seem  to come from people who have  little understanding of the man  on the street,-or his wife,! who  is the usual purchasing agent.  Not all incomes, after all, are  indexed to the cost of living.  This is where (Politics enter the  picture, because politicians can  empathize with the so-called  little man. They have to.  ������ Creston Review.

We're not that far  off from a settlement, a bit  more money, a few more holidays, a shorter work week, and  a one year contract," Steve  says without lack of conviction.  Steve and his wife Betty,  along with ten year old Donna  and eight year old Jimmy, live  in a comfortable middle-class  home in Langdale Heights.  Steve is a welder at the Canadian Forest Products Port  Mellon Pulp Mill and holds  the position of chief shop steward with the Canadian Paper-  workers Union Local 1119. For  Steve, this year marks number 15 as a Canfor employee.  Steve has strong feelings  about the strike and the working conditions of workers at  Port Mellon. He sees himself  and his fellow workers in a  \yilly Loman situation ��� the  plight of the common worker  caught in the squeeze of multinational corporations. Steve  gays the Hutcheon report is  not to be taken seriously ��� and  it was meant to be that way  because he believes the strike  is part of corporation ploy to  oust the present provincial government.  "The Hutcheon report is a  joke," says Steve, because it  fails to give workers a shorter  work week, more holidays, it  suggests a pension scheme  worse than the present one,  and furthermore the all-important cost of living clause is  eliminated. The only thing the  report suggests is more money  and that's not necessarily what  Steve wants.  Steve is strong in 'his convictions because he wants a better life for him and his family.  He was born and raised on the',  Sunshine Coast and he wants  to stay here. That's why he believes union people involved in  the strike should stick together  ��� to make life worthwhile.  No one likes to strike, he  says but when you decide to  put down roots and raise a  family you've got. to ensure  yourself a decent standard of  living and a decent w��ay of life.  But no matter how strong  your principles and ideologies  may be, Steve like the other  375 'striking employees, is no  longer bringing home a monthly paycheck. The sacrifice for  the privilege of striking. And  the sacrifice is even greater in  this situation because the CPU  is a relatively young union and  has not had a chance to build  up a treasury of strike funds.  For the Holland family, that  means not receiving about $800  a month.  "A guy may have a strong  conviction, but when you're  down and out goddamn it. . ."  Steve says in a moment of  doubt when he considers how  long he and some of his coworkers can hold out in a prolonged strike.  Then you ask what about the  family? Betty does not hesitate  in saying that she backs Steve  and his principles. She understands Steve's ideas about creating a decent way of life and  does not mind making short  term sacrifices.  "I just don't buy any of the  frills any more," Betty says  without a great sense of loss.  Chips and pop are definitely  out.  And Steve and Betty anticipated the strike. They didn't go  on an elaborate holiday this  year ��� they did a.little camping and as Steve comments,  you can live away as cheap as  you can live at home.  They have also cut down  considerably on the nights out.  Instead of going out to the Legion on a Saturday night they  will stay home and have a few  beers in the rumpus room.  They have a good garden and  planted some extra potatoes at  Steve's father's place: And then  Betty works part time, a few  hours per week, which brings  in a little income. --  "I don't forsee having to stop  my payments ��� I don't want  to speak for anyone else but I  don't think the strike is hurting that much yet. I haven't  talked to one single guy who  complained about the strike."  Betty and the kids" even like  having dad at home and dad  himself, well, he finally has  time to do ;all those odd jobs  around the house, he has time  to swim when the weather is  good, and he's been playing  ball all summer. He also spends  a lot of time at the union office and on the phone helping  to organize union activity. So  he's not bored at home? No  way, he answers.  But how much longer can  this go on?  "We expected the strike to  last at least until Labor Day,"  Steve says, "but it's going tp  last a lot longer now that the  IWA rejected the mediation report."  "We're going to have to go  to work picketing ... and if we  have, to I'll shut off the furnace and we can use the fireplace."  "But I don't think it will get  that bad," Steve says.  i\y^>%  * *_& -  >* 4  BULK   VEGETABLES   available from the Union office are  listed on the sign1  "On Strike" sign.  behind the  Freeman Smith has been working at the Canadian Forest Products mill at Port Mellon for  almost 12 years now. He is an  apprentice electrician and takes  home about $650 a month.  Well, he WAIS taking home  that amount ��� until the Canadian Paperworkers Union Local 1119 of which' he is a member went on strike.  - So now the Smith family ���  Freeman his wife Joy, and the  two children, Michelle, 8 and  Freeman Jr, 11,. ��� live only  from the savings they managed  to accumulate in anticipation of  the strike and the strike pay  donated by non-striking CPU  members in Eastern Canada ���  which, as Freeman says, may  only be $10 but it's something.  And besides, it's nice to know  the boys in the east are there.  The Smith family live in a  comfortable bungalow in Sechelt and even though affluent would not quite be the  right adjective to describe their  situation ("raise two kids, buy  a  house  on apprentice wages    you tell me how you can  save money?") they do all right  which brings about the comment that we're a bad example  because We knOiW there are a  lot of people worse off who are  not even on strike."  However the Smiths do admit the strike is a financial  hardship and that is made  more as an acquiescence tii-u_ a  bold statement because, as is  Business down? Definitely, no question about it  *_��*_? ^M  ,j#~4J*s* ajW   _..i_^_H_f*{_{����_  ^J WASHERS now dry and quiet.  The strike at Canadian Forest Products Port Mellon is  now in its seventh week. About  375 members of the Canadian  Pulpworkers Union local 1119  are determined to play the  waiting game and try to force  management to sign a one year  contract that; among other ben^S  efits, would provide workers  with $1L50 an hour increase and  a 3?i_ hour work week.  The Canadian Forest Products mill at Port Mellon with  over 500 employees is by far ���  the largest single emipioyer on  the Sunshine Coast. Assuming  that the average worker takes  home between $800 and $1,000  a month, calculations show that  the 375 striking workers would  normally inject about $30,000  per month into the local economy. It is not surprising that  local businesses are being affected by this strike. But just  how much impact does the  strike /have?  The. Coast News conducted  a random survey of businesses  in Gibsons. There are of course  other variables that influence  sales but business people have  estimated that sales are down  anywhere from five to fifty  percent because of the strike.  Jack Stone, Produce Manager  at Elplhinstone Co-op, when we  asked if his business was down  answered a definite yes.  "People are just buying the  basics ��� spuds and carrots."  Jack said if it wasn't for the  pensioners who receive a regular income "we would be in  trouble."  Jack also said what many  of the other merchants believed: "we've had some tourists  around and we Won't feel the  full impact of the strike until  next week when the tourists  are gone.  A spokesman for Super Valu  said his business was not down  considerably beteause as he put  it, everyone has to eat. But he  did say that people are not buy  ing the frills.. He agreed that  with the tourist season coming  to an end "things are going to  get a hell of a lot worse."  Bill Edney at Ken's Lucky  Dollar store says he finds it  difficult to determine whether  sales are up or down because  of his recent expansion. He did  agree, however, that businesses  have been riding a crest caused  by the tourist season 'and believes that if the strike continues on into September Gibsons  will be feeling the crunch.   .  Is the strike affecting the  sales of gasoline?  "Definitely ��� no question  about that,,' says Charlie Mandelkau at Gibsons Shell Service. "All those people but of  work, it's going to have a great  effect on business.", ,7  T "Charlie saidf his" business  frt>m tourists was down this  year and that this was compounded by the strikie. He estimated that for the month of  August his business was down  by about 35 percent compared  to the same month last year.  Harold Phillips at Sunnycrest  Esso said his business has not  'been affected significantly "but  you can tell there's a strike  on." Workers are' not going  back and forth to work and  they're not using the products,  Harold said. He also believes  the end of the tourist season  will indicate a more significant  decrease in gasoline sales.  Haig Maxwell at Gibsons  Western Drugs says his tourist  business was up this year and  he found it difficult to say just  how much the strike has affect  ed his business. He believes  drug stores resist recession periods moreso than many other  stores because many of the  commodities are necessities and  not frills.  He did feel the strike was  generally affecting businesses.  "People become more price con  scious when they don't work  ��� they give it a second thought  before they buy."  How about real estate? Norm  Peterson of Butler Realty said:  "I don't think the strike has  affected us but it hasn't helped." Norm said it was difficult  to assess the short term changes because of the nature of the  business. He said there may be  some long term changes because some of the tradesmen  may be leaving the area taking  their skills elsewhere  And clothing? "It hasn't had  any effect on me," says Helen  Johnson of Helen's Fashion  Shop, "but it's going to hit me  when the money runs out."  What about the food and bev  erage business? Leo Hubel of  the Cedars Inn when asked if  the strike affected his business  answered "definitely ��� we  noticed it immediately." Leo  said business was down in every aspect and when people do  come in to eat they settle for  toaimburgers rather than the  more expensive meals. He said  wi-h business 20 - 30 percent  down it Was not a desperate  situation but it did! indicate  the strike had a definite effect.  Len Tiesu, manager of the  Peninsula Hotel, said his beer  and liquor sales were "way  down." He said business was  up considerably at the beginning of the strike but has since  steadily declined. THe^ estimated  that weekends were down by  50 percent.  "I don't expect business to  pick up until three or four  weeks after the strike has been  settled. The bar is strictly a  luxury ��� no money, no luxuries.  Gary Bennett, manager of  Gibsons Liquor store, said the  strike iwas probably hurting  the liquor business but there  was no yardstick to measure  exactly what kind of an effect  it was having.  He surmised that people may  be drinking cheaper brands of  liquor, or perhaps beer instead  of rye, but generally he felt  sales should be increasing because of an increasing area  population and a change in  drinking habits.  noted by Joy, there's a lot of  pride involved in having to admit that you may be slowly but  surely defeated.  "There are no extras around  this house but nobody is crying," Joy says. She even be  lieves the family's austerity is  bringing some positive consequences because everyone is  taking a much greater interest  in the garden. At least it's get-  ing weeded now.  And instead of going for a  car ride on Sunday, they don't.  And instead of having liquor  around the house, they don't.  Freeman goes fishing a lot in  the family's 20 foot boat and  the coast's supply of oysters  and clams make for good,  wholesome ��� and cheap meal.s  "These are not sacrifices"  Joy insists, "they are merely  cutting down. The biggest  thing is that we didn't go on a  holiday this year because the  money was spent on maintaining the house. Freeman has  worked hard, he needs a holiday."  But Freeman didn't seem too  concerned about his missed holiday as he sat and waited for  3:30 to come so he could go  down to the Legion to pick up.  a strike fund check.  "I'm enjoying the time off.  I can do all the things I haven't'  had time to do. I just do things  from day to day, there's never  any rush, and I enjoy what I  have to do."  And Joy talks about the great  work list she's drawn up for  .her hubsand and reminds him  there's still several items on  the list not done yet. That's  why it's so great having Freeman home all the time. Her  only complaint is that it's disruptive in meal planning because she makes a meal for the  kids and then Freeman wants  something too.  So the strike is teaching the  Smiths something about austerity but in Joy's words, "we  are certainly not going hungry."  '^Come back in two months"  she says in a half joking, half  serious tone.

From our work this summer,  we gained knotwledge of many  aspects of stream ecology and  some of the problems in this  area caused by indiscriminate  logging practice,., mainly in the  past. We also learned the proper use of various hand tools  and equipment, and how to  work together co-operatively  in a group.  Here is a short rundown on  the work we did this summer  .We cleared five log jams from  Wilson Creek, two log jams  from Carlson Creek, built several cement baffles on the  creek at Williamson's Landing  on Sakinaw Lake and -worked  on Keokamo Creek clearing a  log jaim, and logs in other parts  of the creek. We also diverted  a portion of Angus Creek in  Porpoise Bay Park, to by-pass  a new channel which had been  cut by erosion and was draining the main creek. We cleared  an obstruction on Twin-Creeks  as our last project.  Any differences of opinion  within the group were settled  by group decision in the democratic, majority rules mode.  Any personality conflicts, problems or other troubles were  solved easily within our group.  We think that our project  was a great success, and we  are confident that the areas  we worked in will be able to  host more salmon and other  spawning fish in better conditions.  lerson  REALTY LTD.

On Sunday August 10, the  club held an achievement day  in Brothers Park in conjunction  with other local 4H clubs. Special judges for this event were  Mr. and Mrs. R. Wilson of Bel-  lavista Farms who judged  showmarisihip and best Jersey  calf classes.  Results of the showmanship  class are as follows: 1. Margaret Kitson; 2. Karl Johnson; 3.  Prank Chamiberlin; 4. Diane  Wells; 5. Mairi Robertson.  Results of the best Jersey  calf class are: 1. Margaret Kit-  son; 2. Mairi Robertson; 3.  Frank Chamiberlin; 4. Diane  Wells; 5. Karl Johnston. Tlhe  Bellavista Farms trophy was  won by Margaret Kitson.  One other member of the  club, Brian Combs, was unable  to attend at the achievement  day because of holidlay plans.  Presentations were made to  Mr. and Mrs .Wilson and Dr.  Pat Perry in appreciation of  the help they have given the  cluib.  On Monday, Aug. 11, four  members of the club and their  animals left for the Chilliwack  show. The results of both the  open and 4H classes were encouraging for local members.  In the open- class for senior  Jersey calves, Margaret Kitson  plated first, Mairi Robertson  placed fifth, and Frank Chamberlin placed eighth. Margaret  Kitson was also named reserve  junior champion in the open  class.  Mr. Cecil Chamberlin exhibited a three year old Jersey  cow and placed first in his  class, reserve senior champion  ahd reserve grand champion.  The 4H competition was very  keen with clubs from C__lli-  fwiack, Lamgley and surrounding areas taking part.  The Howe Sound club was  able to put this, area on the  map when four local members  placed with their calves in a  class of fifteen entrants judged under the Danish system.  Margaret Kitson and Mairi  Robertson tied for first place,  Frank Chamberlin placed second and Karl Johnston placed  third. Margaret's and Mairi's  calves then entered the championship finals where Margcfir  et's. calf captured the reserve  championship spot in combined  junior and senior Jersey calf  classes.  The four members returned  to Gibsons on August 16, tired  but satisfied with their efforts.  They are to be congratulated  not only on their good showing  in the ring but also for their  courtesy and excellent diplomacy in enlightening those interested ndividuals as to where  Gibsons is geographically.  Many people thought Gibsons  -was on Vancouver Island.  Three of the dairy club members went to the PNE to help  with the Bellavista Farms exhibit.  Striking  statistics  Statistics released by Labor  Minister William S. King reveal that there were 46 labor-  management disputes in the  province during July, involving 28,033 workers for a total  of 258,233 man-days lost.  The comtparable figures for  July 1974 were 19 disputes, involving 44,4)10 workers for a  total of 280,524 man-days lost.

A sadder fact is that, while  dentistry has developed new  methods to control decay and  gum disease, neither the public  nor the dental, .profession is  putting this knowledge to thorough use.  Preventive dentistry demands  serious readjustment in the  thinking of patients and their  dentists. The patient should  visit has dentist twice yearly  and faithfully do the homework prescribed. More time  and concern is needed on the  part of the dentist who should  draw up individual program?  to protect the teeth of each  patient.  Although sounding complicated and irksome, preventive  dentistry in the long run is less  complex, less costly and less  painful than the old repair-  slanted dentistry.

By ROB DYKSTRA  L  Men, grab the aprons and fight for your rights  What's so special about women that they can have a  fwhole year dedicated all to  themselves?  International     W o m e n's  Year. I suppose 1975 will go  down in the history books as  nothing more than the year  of   the   sexists.   Maybe   we  could write it off like a bad  tax year   and  blame  it   on  those  political pundits who  felt obligated to dedicate 12  months of lip service to the  likes and  dislikes   of   Kate  Millett.  I think here and now I will  proclaim 1976 the year of the  male.  Assuming that I can sneak  my blabberings past the female proofreaders who would  otherwise classify this material as a giant typo error,  I will emerge from the col-  lec-ive malediction and openly say that never before have  so many been trampled to  death by so few.  Just look at your literature. Many a good man has  been brought to his knees by  some ruthless female libertine who loudly declares one  early Sunday morning: ''Wilbur I'm leaving you. I'm going home to mother."  And. how often do you read  about the machismo, sporting the most honorable in  tentions, melted like margarine because the young coquette keeps thwarting his  most passionate displays of  ichivalry.  And don't tell me you don't  see those television commercials where Harry is made to  look like an imbecile because  he just happens to come  home with the wrong wash  detergent for diapers. Harry  how can you (help it if the  supermarket didn't have the  right brand in stock.  Oh how I long for next  year. I'll be the first to cast  off the shackles of subservience ��� the first to give papa  the  freedom of  being  burdened as "the breadwinner"  of   that   mini-clique   better  known  as  the family.   Men  win at the horse races, men  win at poker games but men  do not, alas, win at the bakery.  Throughout hiptory it's  been an entire female conspiracy that has forced man  out into the rain and sleet on  a cold, dark winter's morning while mama and babe  snuggle warmly under the electric blanket. It's always  been the man who has been  forced to endure the pains of  labor, forced to plug away  from day to day to make yet  another   mortgage payment.  Come out of the kitchen,  - Martha, it's time you went to  work. It's time you stopped  shopping for baby rattles  and time you got yourself  involved into the ratrace of  life.     '  . We want to see callouses  on your hands and don't give  us that bit about being physically inferior. We want to  see you at age 35 with ulcers in your stomach from  overexposure to corporate  boardrooms and we want to  see you fight your way home  on the 6:16 subway nursing  an acute case of neurosis because you think maybe the  lady at the next desk is getting your promotion.  And we want to see much  more. We want to see you  get involved in high and responsible government stations  ���to  help   bear   the   public  cross of hum'an misery. We  are sick and tired of hearing  that man is his own- worst  enemy ��� why do women al-  way get left out of the blame.  We want to see you make  your own decisions ��� we're  tired of making them for  you. ..  Men of the world unite.  Grab the apron and take  over the kitchen. Why not?  12   Coast News.

Bill Laing in a  report to council has recommended the village undertake  an extensive road improvement  program in 1976.  Laing said in the report  many of the municipal roads  are falling apart and the village has not done any major  work on roads for the last three'  years. He named several roads  that needed repairing ancl  others that would have to be  paved.  In the meantime Coast Paving and Zacharias Paving have  been invited by the village to  send in bids for a project that  involves the repaving of Gower  Point Road between School and  Prowse Roads. Bids are to be  in by September 15.  In other public works news,  council announced the award  of a $12,000 contract to Shoal  Development for the installation of a sewerline along ��� Al-  derspring Road. The pipe for  the sewerline will be supplied  by the village. Total cost of  the project will be about $16,-.  000. Work is expected to commence immediately.

The new bylaw, No. 284, is  not radically different from the  previous business license bylaw except for changes in license fees.  Most businesses in the village  will pay between $5 and $25,  for a six month period. However, some will pay more. An  automobile dealer license will  cost $75. Bankers will pay $150.  Circuses and shows will pay  $100. Finance companies will  pay $150. General contractors  with 11 or more employees will  pay $100. Manufacturers will  also pay $1100. Pawn brokers  will be required to pay $250.  It is expected the bylaw will  be given final adoption at  council's next regular meeting  September 16.  In search  of identity  The village of Gibsons is in  search of a motto and a crest.  Mayor Larry Labonte said  Tuesday' night the village needs  a> crest with which to identify.  A search: into the books indicates the village has never had  one.  x Consideration is being gven  to sponsoring a contest either  among local artists or students  at UBC.
