 Provincial Library,  Victoria, B, C.  Printed and Published at Gibsons, B.C.  10c per copy  Volume 28.   Number 39, October 15, 1Q75.  Long distance tolls to be  eliminated between Sechelt-PH  Arson suspected in residence fire  Telephone long distance tolls  are to be. eliminated between  Sechelt and Pender Harbour  but not between Gibsons and  Pender Harbour.  Results of balloting conducted by B.C. Tel last month indicate that subscribers voted  59.96 percent in favor of eliminating the long distance tolls.  The proposal to eliminate the  tolls between Gibsons-Port Mellon arid Pender Harbour was  rejected by 60.19 percent.  The results of the balloting  ���were announced by Brian Bag-  ley, District Manager for the  B.C. Telephone Company, following a count of ballots: by  representatives of B.C. Tel and  the Sunshine Coast Regional  District.  . Implementation of the toll-  free calling between Sechelt  and Pender Harbour is expected to be in operation by the  autumn of 1977. Monthly tele  phone charges will increase for  both private and! business subscribers. It is expected the rate  for a private single-party subscriber will increase 35 cents  per month.  Bagley explained that implementation of the new calling  plan would require engineering, ordering and installation  of additional cables and transmission  equipment.  He said the company's next  step following the referendum  is an application to Canada  Transport Commission for authorization to put the proposed  toll-free calling plan into operation.  The Regional board earlier  encouraged the elimination of  the long distance tolls between  Pender Harbour and the rest  of the Sunshine Coast because  it was felt the present system  taused social fragmentation.

Walter  'Froese, representing Impax,  explained the development  proposal to council and concerned residents last week. A  delegation of Crucil Road residents made it clear to council  they did not want the area re  zoned commercial.  Contacted for comment after  council's decision, Frbese said  he will appeal to the board at  variance. He said if the decision to reject the rezoning  application stays firm he will  proceed with a six unittious-  ing de velopment  The housing development,  shown to cotincil and residents  last week as an alternative to  the proposed commercial ^complex cqi^sjs^ofsix;^wo-is1#W5yY  boxlike units.  Froese said the housing de-r  velopment   would   effectively  block the view of existing Cru-,  cil   Road   residents   and   that  property values may go down  by $10,000 to $15,000.  Sechelt RCMP are searching  for suspects who may have set  fire to the Sechelt Indian Band  Residential school last Thursday morning. -  The fire, spotted by ROMP  Cst. Wayne Dingle, at 3:40 a.m.  completely gutted the third Y  floor of the three storey residence and caused extensive-  smoke and water damage to  the rest of the building.  "Much of the furniture and  other contents inside the building was also destroyed. No official estimate of the loss ia  available.

Jack Macleod and Joe  Horvath have indicated they,  will run again this year aifter  the expiration of the two year  school trustee term. Both represent rural area 'B' which is  the area from Sechelt south to  Langdale and Bowen Island.  Agnes Labonte, representing the village of Gibsons, will  not run for the school board  position this year.  Celia Fisher, also representing Area 'B' has not decided  whether she will run again or  not.  The trustees are elected for  two   year   overlapping  terms ^  thus insuring some experienced  persons are on the seven-person board. Any person may run  for  election  as  long  as they  meet    the    requirements    set  down    by    the    BJC.    (Public  Schools Act.  B.C. School Trustees Association President Mike Berg said  in a^-recent press release that  too many trustees have been  elected by acclamation in the  past. The BCSTA is launching  a province-jwide information  campaign fo encourage more  citizens to run for school trustee this fall. Last year more  than 65 trustees throughout  B.C. were elected1 by acclamation.   .  November 15 will also see  elections for other public bodies on the Sunshine Coast.  For Gibsons village council,  Alderman Stuart Metcalfe, Jim  Metzler and Mayor Larry Labonte have indicated they will  seek election agam this year.  In Sechelt, Alderman Norm  Watson and Mayor Harold Nelson will be seeking another  two year term. Aderman Ernie  Booth, whose term also expires  this fall has not yet made a  decision whether or not he will  run again.  In the Sunshine Coast Regional Board, Chairman Frank'  West, representing area *E' has  indicated he -will run for reelection. Director Tim Frizzell  representing area 'C will not  run this year. A newcomer to  the board,- John R, Whitaker  of Davis Bay, has filed nomination papers for area. 'C.  James Causey, director for  area 'A', Pender Harbour, will  also  seek  re-election..  All nominations close Monday, October 27. Election day  is November 15.  It appears that the school  bus crisis may be over but  both the board and Sechelt  School Bus Service are reluctant to accept responsibility  for injuries to students when  the bus contains more than 37  students.  In a letter to the board,  George Hopkins, President of  Sechelt School Bus Services  said he would be willing to  abide by school board, policy  as long as it does not allow  more students per bus than  the bus rated capacity and as  long as the policy did not contravene the Motor Vehicle Act.  The manufacturer's rated ca  pacity of the bus is 55 passengers and the motor vehicle act  states passengers shall be safely and comfortably seated allowing 15. inches for high  school students and 12 inches  for elementary students. School  bus seats are 39 inches across.  Hopkins said in the letter  that if any student injuries  result from the set policy the  school board will be responsible.  However, in advice from  Darryl Muralt of the Department of Education the board  was told it should not accept  responsibility in case of injury  to students.  iSaid Muralt ina memo to  the board: "As a licensed motor carrier Seehpi4, School Bus  Service under tne law must  accept full responsibility for all  passengers carried and undei  no circumstances should the  board agree to his [Hopkins'}  suggestion that it accept the  responsibility for injury to students caused by carrying passengers over the limit of 37."  Reacting to this statement,  George Hopkins indicated he  would not be willing to accept  the responsibility.  "If it is my responsibility  then I should have some say  over the policy," Hopkins said.  AN EDITORIAL  Si.nir  uma*"��r E*r_rk  CELIA FISHER  JOE  HUKVA1H  Your chance to get involved  You want to be involved in local school affairs,  here's your chance.  School board elections will be held November 15.  Four trustee positions will be open. The last year in  this school district has seen some breakthroughs in public participat-tan. You had input on the decision of hiring a new district superintendent. You had input on the  choice of locations for the new Sechelt Junior Secondary.  Good for you.  Now you have a chance for even more direct input.  Things are happening in the schools right now. Education philosophies are changing, teachers are expressing  opinions on schools and curricula. Parents are becoming  more interested in what their children are being taught.  When election time rolls around let's not have trustees elected by acclamation. Let's not have trustees appointed. It's happened here before and it's <a strong sign  of public apathy. Furthermore, an appointed trustee is a  trustee without a public mandate. If you don't care about  the education of your children, why should "anyone else.  Many major educational decisions are now made at  the local board level. The position of school trustee therefore carries a lot of weight. It also involves a lot of work.  If you care about your child's education, if you have  some strong ideas about what education is all about,  here's your chance for input at the most direct level.  resumes  Mill  production  After a three-imonth shutdown caused by striking members of the Canadian Paper-  workers Union Local 1119, the  Canadian Forest Products operation at Port Mellon will resume full-scale production this  week.  Picket lines at mill gates  were withdrawn Friday night  after members of the Port Mellon local voted to abide by the  provincial government's back-  to-work legislation announced  last Tuesday afternoon.  Mill Manager Bill Hughes  said the start-up procedure  would be slow but maintenance  and electrical workers have  been busy since last week preparing the mill for operations.  He said that by Friday of this  week operations would be pretty well back to normal.  Preparations for resuming  work were already being made  within 48 hours after Bill 146  was passed but there was no  indication that striking workers  would be back to work until  (Continued on Page 12) 2     Coast News, Oct. 15, 1975.  iilif WMWM  Subscription Rates:  British Columbia $4.50  per year;  $2.50 for six months; Canada except B.C. $5.00 oer year;  United States and Foreign $8.50 per year.

Phone 886-2622        PO Box 460, Gibsons, B.C  Not the end of the world  Officials of British Columbia's labor unions, rushing into a situation made by Premier Barrett's Bill 146  felt that history in this case was meaningless. IhJey  overlooked the past on the North. American continent  when striking workers were forced to return to work  dotting a 90 day breathing spell;��� and the world did not  come to an end.  In fact records will show in practically every case  where the 90 day action was imposed, the 90 day period  passed and the need for strike action passed along with  it.  Workers gain more than they lose under the 90 day  cooling off period. To buck the laws of the land will not  help any union movement.  Premier Barrett has earned the respect of the*Britiish  Cohimlbian public. The situation warranted his action. It  phould have .been used by Prime Minister Trudeau  -months ago in the various postal strikes. The Barrett  action is much more kindly to labor than is the hands-  off principle which has ruled political leaders for the past  few years.  Premier Barrett while improving his "face the nation" status has undoubtedly cleared the air of many minor backlashes which have been regarded by the opposition  as political dynamite. In past editorials this paper has  maintained that Premier Barrett holds all the political aces. He played one of them in Bill 146.  If the Barrett government! had continued its earlier  decision to keep hands "off labor affairs, nobody would  have gained and labor might come off in a far worse  position than it is today. After having dealt with leaders  of the industries involved and leaders of the various  unions for a somewhat lengthy space of time the premier  decided the only way out was the action he took in presenting Bill 146.  This bill was not hammered out in a few minutes.  The thoughts put into it emerged as the debate involving the two sides dragged on day after day with no result.  In a recent copy of the New Statesman of London,  England, Paul Johnson, a former editor of that publication wrote an article headed Can Unions Strangle Democracy? The New Statesman is socialist oriented. Here  are the two lead paragraphs from, that article:  People often assume that rade unionism and socialism are roughly the same thing; that a trade unionist is  a socialist, and vice versa; and that trade union and socialist activities are designed to secure the same objects.  I would like to show that these assumptions have always '  jbeen dubious and are now demonstrably and flagrantly  false. Indeed it is possible to argue that in Britain today,  the trade union movement is not only self-defeating in  terms of its own aims but is a positive and growing ob- .  stacle to the accomplishment of socialist ones,  i "Socialism teaches that the wealth of a society  should be administered in the interest of all; that every  one of us, men, women and children have an equal duty  to it���to do our best-^and an equal right to share in its  fruits. Socialism is not a program for the industrial  workers or the manual workers or any particular groupt  of workers. It is not a program for the working class. It  is not a program for any class. Socialism does not believe  in classes. It is against particularism, group or sectional  interest, and above all it is against sectional interests  which organize themselves to exploit the rest of the  community.  "Socialism expresses the essential unit and common  humanity of society���our sisterhood, our brotherhood.  That is why it is inseparable from democracy and why,  to be true to itself, it must work through a government  responsible to a universally elected assembly. That is  where all the essential decisions which affect the life of  the community must be taken and nowhere else. Any institution iii a society which challenges this principle can  not be a socialist institution; indeed', it must be an anti-  soci'alist one." ���FC.  Highlights of the financial and economic review  p*0*^+*i^��^*+^+^+*+m^.^i^+i*r>*'  I have held the lovely hand of summer,  Have known her golden kiss,  At her breast have savoured wondrous food  ��� an eager lover;  Fruits of the earth with myriad colored shapes  Have seen their purple shadows die with night  And then with aging eyes soft winter's  shadow  mantle  Enshroud the Sleeping Lions  O'er Seymour's heights  Basil Smijth  , The fiscal year of 1974-^5  has been an excellent one for  the people and the province  of British Columbia, according to the former finance minister Dave Barrett.  In issuing a report on the  highlights of the 1975 financial  and economic review, Barrett  said, "Our economy has continued its outstanding perfortm-  ance, which is reflected in the  production of another year of  Provincial Government revenues exceeding exipenditures. I  have said that we will not go  into deficit financing to pay for  our many new social programs  such as Mincome and Pharxna-  fcare, and I am pleased to report that in 1974-75 we again  paid for these new programs  and still produced a surplus in  revenues  ,i  The following are the highlights:  In the 1974-75 fiscal year;  provincial revenue receipts amounted to $2.625 billion. For  the preceedinig year (fiscal  1973-74) the comparable number was $2,109 billion.  Budgetary expenditure for  the year ending March 31, 1975  was $2,531 billion, up from  $1,832 billion the year before.  The revenue surplus on budgetary account at March 3*1,  1975 was $94.6 million.  Non-budgetary expenditure  amounted to $108.2 million.. Of  this, $80.5 million was appropriated for special-purpose  funds/Most of this money went  to programs with a high em  ployment generation impact.  Of the balance of the 1974-75  non - (budgetary expenditure,  $26.7 million was accounted  for by grants and advances to  provincial crown corporations  including a $15 million grant to  the British Columbia Railway  The remaining $1 million of  non - budgetary expenditure  resulted from an advance of  that amount to the BacaiE-e  North Coast Native Co-operative.  At March 31, 1975, the accumulated budgetary cash reserve was $143.7 million. At  March 31, 1972, the reserve  stood at $98.6 million.  Expenditure  Highlights  In ,1974-75, expenditures on  Health and Social Services exceeded $1 billion for the first  time. In 1971-72J expenditures  in this area amounted to $505,9  million. In 1974-75, the amount  had risen to $11,061 billion.  Areas within the Health and  Social Services function where  expenditure more than doubled  over the 1971-72 to 1974-75 period were Public Health1, Mincome, Pharmacare, Day Care,  Child Welfare and Public Hous  inlg.  The share of total expenditures devoted to Health and  Social Services and Education  stayed roughly the same over  the period. Alimost two-thirds  of total provincial expenditure  is devoted to these two areas.  In 1971-72, Health and Social  Services and. Education took  63v4 precent oif the budget. In  1974-75, the comparable figure  was 63.7 percent.  Highways and ferry expenditure stood at $308.9 million in  1974-75 ��� up from $289.8 million the year before.  Revenue (Highlights  The review indicates that a  higher proportion of provincial  revenue comes from corporations in 1974-75 than was the  case in 1971-72. Higher revenues from natural gas and a  higher provincial corporate income tax rate were the principal factors lying behind this  shift. The share of provincial  revenues arising from taxes  and charges on households in  1974-75 were correspondingly  less compared to 1971-72.  Total assets of the province  increased by $265 million during the fiscal year to a total  of $3,845 billion at March 3)1,  1975. Total assets at March 31  1975 were over three times the  total at March 31, 1965. <  . Fixied assets (highways,  bridges, buildings, etc.) of the  province totalled $1,828 billion  at March 31, 1975 ��� up $140  million from last year.  The province's excess of assets over liabilities increased  $137 '064,918 " in 1974-75 to $2,-  388,801 ,���46 at March 31,  1975.  The province held a 12.4 percent interest in Westcoast  Transmission Company Limited  at March 3H, 1975 on an investment of $25,456,750. Dividends  of $2,024,969 were received by  the province during the fiscal  year. A further $1,041,412 has  been earned this fiscal year.  The outstanding direct debt  of the province fell during the  1974-75 fiscal year by $1 million to $42.7 million. This debt  is fully offset by sinking fund  investments whose par value  at March 31, 1975 was $43 million.  The net contingent liability  debt of the province at Mariclh  31, 1975, was $3.8 billion. This  is debt of provincial crown corporations, munici p a 1 i t i e s,  schools and other local governments and private enterprises  whicin is guaranteed by the  province. Most (70 percent) of  the contingent liability debt is  associated with B.C. Hydro.  Parity development bonds  outstanding of the crown corporations have been reduced to  $141,505,000, a reduction of  $112,020,000 since 1972.  The Review describes the  provincial crown corporations  and provides detailed financial  information on British Columbia Hydro and the British Columbia Railway.  The British Columbia Petroleum Corporation, a crown corporation fromed in November  ili973., recorded net income for  the year ending March 31, 1975  or $92.6 million.  The 1974 gross provincial  product (the market value of  all goods and services produced  in the province) increased by  ���an estimated $2.35 billion to  $16.17 billion or 17 percent  higher than in 1973.  wSJi^'WSW'y'.C^-ft w^t ���**%�� s'   j" *������   <���"  $      *      g      $  Above average earnings are  yours as a Fuller Brush representative.

The trail, a joint project of  the Centennial Committee and  ^rw_*>  THE   CENTENNIAL    Cycling  Trail passes through the land  of dairy farms.  ���BJC. Government Photo.  4 times a year.

In the early days, the Fraser  Valley was home to the S&lish  Indians, who followed the  many waterways for fishing  and trading. Later, trappers  seeking furs, and miners en  route to the Cariooo and Upper  Fraser River goldfields carved  through the bush and forests  to make their way. In this  century, the loggers came, and  the entire valley is laced with  logging roads which stretch up,  down and around the stands oi  timber that cover the coast  mountains.  The Centennial Trail began  with a combined effort by  many groups to survey, clear  and mark the various sections  of the trail. Eventually, it is  planned to continue through  Manning Park on the Skyline  Trail, through Cathedral Provincial Park and on to Osoyoos  some 480 kilometes east of  Vancouver  Because the project was undertaken by many groups,  maintenance and upkeep is especially difficult, although the  CYH hired students in 1972  and again plans to hire help  this summer, to recut and! ,re-  mary the original trail. The  maple-leaf signposts and red  tape markings have slowly  disappeared in many sections.  The Centennial Cycling Trail,  about a 60-mile (95-kilometre)  round trip begins in the Mat-  squi area at Mount Lehimann.  To begin, take the Mount Lehman interchange from Highway 1 and drive north to Harris Road, where both the hiking and cycling trails converge.  You cah'lgb a little further  northwest to the actual starting point, Taylor Avenue and  Ross Road.  CROCHET PATTERNS  Most popular! You'll love it  for town, country, travel!

The CYH office also has irifomation on dav  hikes on the trail, and on one  two-day   backpacking   trip.  The cycling trail offers an alternate route soon after its beginning. You may either travel  south and through the bustling town of Abbotsford, or  stick to meandering backroads  through the settlements ot  Straiton and Kilgard. Along  the way the country roads  wind up and down, through  the valleys and low hills that  dot the wide, mainly flat Fraser River Valley. These back  roads are narrow, often lined  with deep drainage ditches.  and seldom straight; they follow the streams and creeks  that cut through the lush farmlands.  The colors around you are  mostly shades of green, from  light to dark, yellow-^green to  deep blue-green of clover, alfalfa grazing land and the neatly-rowed 'vegetable farms. In  the distance On the north side  of the river, as well as to the  south and east, are the smoky  blues and purples of the mountains, until late summer still  snow-capped and dotted with  white glaciers.  For nature lovers, the cycling trail provides a variety of  wildflowers and grasses, with  bullrushes along the swampy  ditches. Daisies, foxgloves and  buttercups line the roadsides.  Barns and silos dot the landscape, multi-colored and of, every shape and size, for this is  a dairy farming area, and the  fields are full of the black and  white of healthy milk cows.  The cycling trail parallels  the highway for a short distance, on a less used road, then  cuts back into the farrhlands  and ends up in the city of  Chilliwack, about 30 miles (50  kilometres) from its beginning.  It is easy riding for the entire  family, and makes a good day's  outing.  If you plan to use bipycles  on the hiking trail, check first  with the local Chamlber of  Commerce or Visitors Bureau  in that region to get. up-to-date  information on the condition of  that portion of the trail, and to  obtain local maps that will  show other routes that will  make an afternoon or evening  cycle trip .

Preparing pumpkin for your favorite fall desserts  Everyone is an artist when  it -comes to carving a Jack O"  Lantern face for Hallowe'en,  and. everyone can be creative  swhen it comes to preparing a  special pumpkin dessert. But  the practical cook knows how  to cook fresh pumpkin after  it's removed from the Jack O'  lantern and before it's made  into pumpkin filling.  This is the way the practical  cook prepares fresh pumpkin.  To boil pumpkin, remove the  seeds and pithy parts and  scrape out the flesh from the  pumpkin with a spoon. Cut in  3m&U pieces and cook in boiling salted water for 20 to 30  minutes or until tender. Then  PUMPKIN CAN be used in  muffins, cookies, pies, breads,  custards and preserves, among  many other dishes. But for a  rather unusual and delicious  dessert Food Advisory Services  Agriculture Canada offer their  recipe for "Pumpkin Creese-  cake." The "Bumpkn Preserves" are , more traditional  but always welcome.  ���Agriculture Canada photo,  SUNSHINE COAST  REGIONAL DISTRICT  NOTICE OF ELECTION  PUBLIC NOTICE is hereby given to -the electors  of the herein cited ELECTORAL AREAS of tihe  Sunshine Coast Regional Dfetrid;, thlat I require  the presence of 1ihe said electors at the Regional  District Office, Wharf Street, Sechelt on Monday  the 27th day of October 1975, at the hour of 10:00  o'clock in the forenoon, for the purpose of electing persons to represent them as Directors for  each ELECTORAL AREA of the Regional District  as hereinafter Specified:  Electoral Area ' Term yof Office  "A" Two Years  "C" Two Years  ��E" Two Years  The mode of nomination of candidates shall be  as follows:  Candidates shall be nominated for each ELECTORAL AREA in writing by two duly quali- v  fied electors of the respective electoral areas concerned.

Frankly it does not have  to when our own politicians  are all to eager to implemeniy  the wishes of the Canadian  Communist Party.  For instance, at the 21st  Convention of the Communist  (Party of Canada held November 27-29, 1971, resolutions formulated and passed' included:  Government take over and  control of land, government  take over of all natural resources, gas "and oil pipelines,  credit unions, insurance companies, transportation and communications.  IThe Communists in Convention called for rent control,  Crown Corporations, free dental care and government con^-  trol of all pharmaceutical companies. Along with demands  for day care centres, a thirty  two hour work week and the  abolition of compulsory arbitration, they called for maternity leave at full pay for work  ing women.  In patting themselves on the  back for work accomplished  in promoting "independence"  for Quebec, opposition to the  War Measures Act and involvement in the "peace" : movements, the Party called upon  its membership to increase  their efforts to get elected to  Municipal Councils "in order to  implement communist programs."  Obviously we will not have  a revolution ha Canada ��� not  while we are so intent upon  putting the noose around our  own heck!

The nominati'on-paper shall be delivered to the  Returning Officer at any time between the date  of this notice and noon of Monday, October 27,  1975. The nomination-paper may be in the form  prescribed in the Municipal Act and shall state-  the name, residence, and occupation of the person nominated in such manner as to sufficiently identify such candidate. The nomination-  paper shall be subscribed to by the candidate.  In the event of a poll being necessary, such poll will  be opened at the Municipal Office on Saturday, the  15th day of November, 1975 between the hours of  8:00 am. and 8:00 pm., of which every person is hereby required to take notice and govern himself accordingly.

Mayors and local councils at  the UBCM, and the list goes on  and on. Unlike Mr. Bennett,  who talks about the issues,, the  NDP finds very few issues on  which it can speak positively,  such, being the state of the  B.C. economy, and B.C. politics.  Even more interesting to note  "the big government psychology" of the NDP as revealed1 by  Mr. Lockstead in your- article  He points to what he thinks is  the greatest accomplishment of  the government bringing in  "two hundred pieces of legislation" since coming to government".  Is this not a classic example  of the big government, big  stick psychology that has become so much a part of the  NDP.  They have shown they can't  administrate, all they know is  legislate. British Columbians  don't want more government,  they want less government,  and what government they  must have should be of a. much  better quality than the bunch  of socialists that are now running  this province.  ���SUZANNE VAN EGMOND  Sunshine Sketches...  It seems Gibsons Alderman  Bill Laing has passed the final test. At last week's council meeting Aid. Jim Metzler  asked Aid. Laing a question  concerning the Gibsons-Sechelt airport. Aid. Laing, who  is Gibsons representative on  the airport committee spoke  profoundly on the question  for a few minutes. Everyone  looked puzzled.    .  Aid." Metzler then broke  out laughing and said to  Laing: "You sound too much  like a politician."  Speaking of politics, Aid.  Kurt Hoehne voiced a bit of  disappointment last week.  About 30 people had crowded  into the council chambers to  give opinions on the proposed  Crucil Road development. After that topic had been thor-?  oughly discussed the delegation filed out of the chambers  leaving only council, the clerk  and the members of the press  Ale.. Hoehne then proceeded  to give his report revealing  how well the village has been  adhering to this year's budget  in spite of inflation and' increased labor costs. Those 30  or so village residents missed  the best part of the meeting,  thought  Aid.   Hoehne.  That'^unidentified'^ man in  the page 12 photograph in the  Coast News last week has  been identified. The man is  Vancouver singer Terry Jacks  Jacks had been diving near  Gambier Island when he experienced dizziness. A party  on board the Jacks boat  called the Coast News via  radio telephone and asked if  we could arrange to have an  ambulance on the Gibsons  wharf.  It was nothing serious. Apparently the singer had been  working too hard in the pas^  few weeks and the only thing  he had for breakfast that  morning was a rum and eggnog.  Congratulations to John  Smith of Hi-Baller Salvage.  John won last week's Lions  400 Club draw for $100. Ticket was drawn by Ross Orris in Gibsons Bank of Montreal.  Gibsons RCMP detachment  is now officially a sergeant'*  detachment. October 3 was  the big day for Corporal. ..  (sorry sarge) Sergeant Harvey Finch who received his  promotion on that date.  Sechelt carver Jamie Dixon  called last week to say that  the photograph of the Indian  basket maker which ran on  the editorial page of this paper last week was his great  grandmother.  Her name was Agnes Charlie and she lived to be  105  years old. Had all her teeth  when  she  died in  1942 said  -. Jamie.  She originally came from  Seabird Island near Agassiz  and was well known for her  baskets in tlje Sechelt area.  Jamie also said that Captain Jorgenson of' the Union  Steamship Company was a  nephew of Agnes Charlie.  Gibsons resident poet Peter  Trower has an article published in the October issue of  Vancouver Magazine. The article is called "Over the  Edge." It's about Steve Littlejohn's logging truck accident in 1973 on the east side  of Alice Lake. Like most  other things Peter does, the  article is worth reading.

"The time has come for a  new voice to be heard in Victoria, a voice that is familiar  both with the problems facing  management and the problems  facing union members," Cooper  said while visiting the Sunshine Coast last week.  "Few may realize that our  forest unions are made up of  normal intelligent people. They  are caught up in an interlocking web of rapidly increasing  prices and wages surrounding  them at all points, a situation  for which both levels of government nriust bear a large  share of the responsibility.'  "Ironically.'. for the welfare  pundits in Victoria, no one in  the NDP seems to realize that  true welfare has something to  do with the real efficiency of  the economy. All the while the  NDP is interested in keeping  the business sector off balance,  a state of true welfare does  not and cannot exist."  Asked about the present  NDP social policies, Cooper  said the NDP has no preserve  in looking after unfortunate  people. He agreed in this day  and age no one should starve  and that any government has a  responsibility to the unfortunate members of society.  Commenting on the government's recent back-to-work legislation Cooper said, "I think  Barrett is a wolf in manage  ment's clothing."  "I agree with Barrett's decision ��� there was no alter/  native ��� but it would have  been better if he had done it  on his own accord."  Cooper said there should be  some efforts in this province  to achieve better management-  labor relations.

Get your furnace in shape for winter ���  so you can be both warm and a little  richer. You'll cut your fuel bill by as much  as 25%, and help to conserve Canada's  fast-dwindling energy reserves:  AS A NATION we waste more energy than  xVsome countries consume in total. We're on  an energy binge that we can no longer afford.  Modest cut-backs now will be easier to face  than shortages and even higher prices in a few  years time.  For every $ 100 you spend on energy at home,  more than half of it goes into heating. So your  furnace is a great place to start saving.  ature: perhaps try an oil nozzle 10% to 20%  smaller (or the lowest firing rate recommended  for your furnace).  ��� If you're paying for a complete check of the  furnace and heating system, make sure you get  it. Start by reading The Billpayer's Guide to  Furnace Servicing.  This free book explains everything that you  and your serviceman should do to save fuel and  money. (See coupon below.) It has a complete  oil and gas furnace checklist, and a calculator  for determining overall furnace efficiency.  3  1  Check the efficiency  of your oil furnace.  Is your oil furnace working at top efficiency?  Find out:  Look for a dirty flame. Lift the flap that covers  the small hole on the front of your furnace. If  you see black smoke coming from the tip of the  flame, your burner needs adjustment. Gall the  serviceman. .  Inspect for soot. Shut the furnace off and poke  a flashlight inside the box. An accumulation of  soot means it's time for a service call.  Check the barometric damper. This valve  between the furnace and chimney bumps open  and shut as the wind blows and as the furnace  cuts in and out. If it sticks in any position, you're  wasting energy.  Lower your thermostat.  Dropping your setting from 72 to 68��F will save  about 10%. If each of us saves 10%, Canada  will conserve 8 million barrels of oil and 24  million cubic feet of natural gas each year.  It's time to pay the piper.  We can't live in the future as we do now. The  resources simply won't be available. Here  two facts to ponder: ������   y  ��� If we continue to consume at our present rate  of increase, Canada will need twice as much  energy in 12 years.  ��� The capital costs of developing new sources  of energy will soar,to. $110 billion over the next  10 years���an investment of about $20,000 for  each Canadian family.
