I...  The Coasl News learned on the weekend that four fifty-pound  drams of Tordon 10-K had been emptied Into Salmon Inlet at  Clowholm Falls between Friday night and Saturday last week.  Juveniles are believed to have been Involved.  The caretaker at Ihe Clowholm Falls sub-station is quoted  as saying that the herbicide was being stored awaiting dispersal. Local R.C.M.P. are reported to have expressed concern  that Ihe herbicide was stored In what is described as 'an unsafe shack'.  District Manager for B.C.Hydro, Eric Hensch, was unaware  of Ihe Incident when Informed of it late Saturday.  Tordon 10-K, which was the herbicide to be utilized In the  Pender Harbour area, is described as being in the form of  orange pellets which turn white on contact with the water.  A Clowholm Falls logging camp has been advised against  use of the water which customarily provides their water supply.  R.C.M.P. Investigation is continuing.  Hydro granted permit  Appeal fails  The Sunshine Coast Regional District was informed last  week that their appeal against the use of herbicide in the Pender  Harbour portion of the powerline has been denied. An initial  report from B.C.Hydro said that the application of the herbicide  would begin on September 5. A subsequent report, however,  said that tenders for the application of thc herbicide had nol yet  been sent out and the application would bc delayed.  Gordon Turiff, barrister for Secret Cove man John Grames,  who had shared thc case against herbicide application with  William Orobko, solicitor for the Sunshine Coast Regional;  District, appealed on behalf of Grames for financial support  from the Regional Board since his presentations on behalf of  Grames had assisted the Regional Board in their case.  Also present at thc meeting on August 31, Grames said that  hc had recently discovered that his water supply was not directly affected and said that he could not justify the expense of a  further appeal without aid from the Regional District. Directors  agreed to take the matter up with their solicitor and give it  consideration.  Referendum delayed  Sixty-five people attended a  spirited meeting at the Senior  Citizen's Hall in Sechelt on  Tuesday, August 29.  The purpose of the meeting  was to discuss the rezoning  of Mr. Len Van Egmond's  property on the bluff at the  head of Porpoise Bay. and the  first draft of the Sechelt  Official Community Plan.  Of more immediate concern  to the residents ��� especially  those living in thc Osborne  subdivision  around   Harbour  Kolibas who was chairing the  meeting, fell that a discusslo  of this nature could not be  successfully conducted at an  open forum, and recommended that those interested meet  as a whole in the near future, thc gathering abstained.

The date for the referendum on recreation facilities has been  set back to coincide with the November elections. The decision  was taken at thc August 31 meeting of the Regional Board.  Originally thc date of October 7 had been proposed.  The reason for the delay was the director's feeling that  the recreation public meetings were at an awkward time with  a convention of B.C. municipalities intervening. To delay the  October 7 date to another date than the November election  would not bc worth the $1,000 a referendum would cost by itself since the time saved would be negligible.  Almond vs Harrison  Utilities corridor stalled  Regional Board Chairman Harry Almond demanded  that Director Joe Harrison  withdraw remarks attributed  to him concerning the controversy which arose over the  proposed Regional takeover  of Granthams Landing Water  and allegations about initiatives taken without Board  approval by Works Superintendent Gordon Dixon.  Harrison refused to withdraw his remarks and accused  ���he Board Chairman of using  his position to badger and embarrass a director, Director  Ed Nicholson of Area 'B' attempted to resolve the matter  by proposing a vote of  confidence in the Works  Superintendent but the representatives of Gibsons and  Sechelt, Jack Marshall and  Erode Jorgensen appearing  as alternate for Morgan  Thompson, indicated that they  would abstain on such a  motion and it was finally  referred to the Management  Committee,  A delegation from the Sechelt Indian Band led by Chief  Calvin Craigan attended the regular meeting of thc Sunshine  Coast Regional Board held in the Board offices on Thursday,.  August 31. The delegation was in attendance to make clear the  support of the Indian Band for the concept of a Utilities Corridor  through the Sechelt Isthmus, a corridor which would involve  land administered by the Indian Band, by the Regional Board,  and by the municipality of Sechelt.  In his comments to the Regional Board, Band Councillor  Gilbert Joe reminded the directors that sophisticated approaches to the question had taken place before the existence of the  present slate of directors. "In the interests of communication  we are before the Board to make our support clear for a utilities  corridor stretching from Mission Creek to West Sechelt",  Derwyn Owen, Economic  Advisor to the Indian Band,  pointed out that this issue  had been discussed since  1972. "The band became  concerned about the request  by the various utilities for  land at that time and the idea  of a Utilities Corridor originated with the Sechelt Indian  Band".  A proposal for the Utilities  Corridor had been made to  Labour Minister Allan Williams and though the initial  provincial reaction had been  favourable the matter had  subsequently bogged down.  The issue which had brought  progress to a halt apparently  involved   thc   unwillingness  , of thc provincial government  to accept an  Administrative  .Commission,    composed    of  representatives of the Indian  Band,   thc   Regional   Board,  and thc Municipality of Sechelt.     "The province does  .not  seem  to be willing  to  accept local input where B.C.  .Hydroand the Department of  ..Highways is concerned.  Regional Director Charles  Lcc wondered if the fact that  the right-of-way was mortgaged by Hydro to Montreal  Trust to cover borrowings  was a factor. Director Nicholson asked if it were possible  to support a Utilities Corridor  without an Administrative  Commission if the provincial  government was only balking  at thc commission.

The bird was brought to his office after it had been apparently  injured on the beach at Roberts Creek.  Lockstead meets  with Minister  M.L.A.Don Lockstead had a meeting with Minister of High  ways, Alex Fraser, on the Sunshine Coast recently. Lockstead  met with the Minister last Wednesday morning. It is believed  that the Minister was on thc Sunshine Coast to acquire first  hand knowledge of various highway and ferry problems in thc  area.  While here the Minister took the opportunity to look at the  Coopers Green property along with Geoffrey Ketcham of his  department. The Minister of Highways said that no decision  will be made on the question of the transfer of thc road allowance adjacent to the Coopers Green property. Thc Minister said  the M.L.A. would be informed when the decision was reached.  It has been the contention of the Regional Board that the  property should be reserved for public use as a park. In apparent reference to the contention made recently by Regional  Director for the area, Ed Nicholson, that if the Highways Department transferred the road allowance without adequate  notice being given locally they would be acting in contravention  of the Highways Act, the Minister said that in his view the de-  gazetting of the allowance could be legally accomplished under  Section Eleven of the Highways Act,  M.L.A.Lockstead assured the Coast News that Regional  Director Nicholson would bc kept fully informed of the progress  of the matter In Via-tori,     ;  ative agreement was reached, the public to put themselves that   the   trail   would   then  but as thc Clerk Tom Wood jn the place of the developer, skirt    the     Village    centre  explained, Mr. Van Egmond who  was  governed   entirely and continue  up  as  far  as  had not been present at thc by what  thc  market   would the Arena.  meeting and any agreement bear, and  rather  than  sub- A   straw   vote   was   taken,  was therefore inconclusive. divide   the   whole   of   Block which   indicated   that   those  As all thc Council members 10 when only part of it would present were largely in favour  were present at thc Tuesday bc marketable, he should be of ajrail in the Village  meeting, a request was put able  to  build  as  the   need      ~  from thc floor that the dis- arises.

Regional District Planner Robyn Addison  opened the meeting by explaining lhc concept of  Settlement Plans to thc one  hundred and sixteen people  in attendance ai the Welcome Beach Hall.  In the second phase of Ihe  meeting the public was divided into groups according to  the area thai they lived in  and a hall hour's discussions  took place in the individual  groups before a recorder  from each group reported to  the whole meeting on the  concerns ol the group.  Planner Addison made a  note of thc principal concerns  expressed then someone from  each area group was appointed to a committee to study thc  Settlement Plan.  Regional Board only interested in school  Local publican John Kavanagh savours the  first draft beer available as the beer strike  came to an end last week.  Pender residents reassured  A delegation of Pender  Harbour residents was  assured at the Regional  Board meeting held on August 31 that the Regional  Board's prime concern in  Area 'A' was the provision of  water for the Pender Harbour  Secondary School. The residents were concerned that the  Regional Board intended to  provide water service for the  area between the Wise subdivision along the highway  two and one half miles to  thc secondary school in the  Kleindale area.  Board Chairman H,��rry  Almond assured thc delegation from Pender Harbour  that thc Regional Board had  no intention of acting upon  thc petition presented by  Developer Wise at a recent  Public Utilities meeting.  "Hc is not under our jurisdiction,"      said      Almond.  "What we want is to gct  water to the high school.  In answer to the question  if the Regional Board had  the legal right to extend into  Area 'A', Almond explained  that while the Regional Hoard  had no legal right to extend  within the jurisdiction of the  South Pender Water District, it was their responsibility to provide water where  needed or sought by residents inside Area 'A' if thc  area in question lay outside  thc South Pender Water  District.  On the subject of the supply  of water to the Pender school  Howie White, on behalf of  thc Area 'A' A.P.C. pointed  out that it was the feeling  locally that Kleindale Creek  was a much better source of  water to provide fire protection. A study conducted independently by the residents  of Pender Harbour and reported in the Coast News  last year estimated Ihat it  would cosl only $27,000  approximately to give thc  school in Pender a gravity  led water system from Kleindale Creel..'  This was at variance wilh  the proposal of Regional  Works Superintendent Gordon Dixon and Maintenance  Supervisor Bob Rutter of  School District #46 which had  informed Ihe Regional Board  that it would cost $50,000  to utilize Kleindale Creek  as opposed to $30,000 for  Anderson Creek.  In addition to the cost  discrepancy White pointed out  Ihat pumping would be necessary from Anderson Creek  and pumping is costly. Vera  McAllister also pointed out  that Anderson Creek was a  major fish-spawning creek.

BLUE  RIBBON  AWARD  Night is right  Il is unfortunately impossible to believe thai the Regional Board���John  Grames appeal against the use of Tordon  10-K on the powerline above Pender  Harbour got a fair hearing. The principal  ingrcdlcnl In Tordon 10-K is a chemical  called pecloram. It is an exceptionally  long lasting herbicide which takes at  leasl five years to bc deactivated from the  soil according lo a publication released by-  Dow Chemical. The same publication  specifies that thc herbicide not be  allowed to contaminate any body of water  nor used near irrigated areas, flic user is  even urged not to clean thc applicator  near trees and shrubs which are designated desirable.  Il is in short a powerful herbicide  wiih a long life and it is being used  directly above the drinking water of  Pender Harbour, lt is thc considered  opinion here that no impartial tribunal  could have  found  that  its  use  should  have been permitted in such a situation  and we can only concur with the terse  comment of John Grames of Secret  Cove who took money from his own  pocket to oppose the use of the herbicide. "Might is Right".  We also agree with Mr. Grames that  it is likely that the Sunshine Coast was  caught in a particularly vicious Hydro  power play because another decision  against the use of herbicides on thc heels  of the Penticton decision would have  meant strong precedents had been set  against use near any populated area.  If there is any issue which finds  this individualistic area united it is in  opposition to thc use of herbicides above  our water supplies. Is there anyone not  in the employ of the power corporation  who is in favour of it? And yet the virtually united opposition of thc populace  is not enough to prevent its use. It fills  us with foreboding ��� and anger.  Tordon 10-K on the loose  And if the proposed use of Tordon  10-K were not enough we find that  B.C. Hydro, having brought the stuff  into the area, is incapable of keeping it  out of harm's way even before they  apply it. Two hundred pounds of the  herbicide have been emptied by a group  of young people into Clowholm Lake  above Salmon Inlet. It should never have  been where thc wrong hands ��� are there  right hands in a case like this? ��� could  Water absurdity  It is the opinion here that the Pender  Harbour���Regional Board kerfuffle has  reached absurdity. Let's try to make a  few simple statements and suggestions.  First of all to Regional Director Joe  Harrison: if you believe, sir, that the  Regional Works Superintendent Gordon  Dixon has been taking initiatives not  sanctioned by the Board say so at the  Board meetings and ask for an investigation. That way the man can bc reprimanded if you are right and absolved if  you are not. it is unacceptable to have  him work under a cloud of innuendo.  Secondly, apparently there arc two  forms at Ihe Regional Board Office for  Sechelt Council  The Sechelt Council has not been  fortunate in its dealings with developers.  We will not attempt an exhaustive list  hut a glance back at the Seaside Village  fiasco should be enough of a precedent.

The other is a form letter over  thc signature of Gordon Dixon and has  the appearance of at least encouraging  petitions for water. The second is the  one used in thc case of the Wise subdivision. It may have caused much of the  misunderstanding. Perhaps the Regional  Board should get rid of it.  In any event the directors should stop  bickering and give serious attention  to thc business of establishing mutual  trust among the people of thc Sunshine Coast. We have enough to contend  with without needlessly battling each  other.  Is it not the law that developers should  agree to supply paved roads before  getting subdivision approval? Isn't  it time the Sechelt Council began enforcing its own laws? Appeals for sympathetic understanding for developers who do  not conform to thc law are difficult to  understand.

He had been  only a week a logger.  The approach to Porpoise Bay  wharf is now under construction.

L.R.Peterson  ffidaifr^aW**  For Brad and June  The grizzly bear was old and  scarred. He had fought for his  territory with his kind and in  his prime had weighed close  to 1,800 pounds. From nose  to tail he was over nine feet  long. Subsequent investigation was to reveal bullet holes  in his hide and his long  career as king of his particular hill had seen more than  one brush with the noisy  species whose buildings and  fields were beginning to climb  now to the top of thc valley  which hc considered his  territory.  In the past hc had moved  after his encounters with the  puny species who could  somehow inflict injury from a  distance, had gone elsewhere  and with his great size had  disputed prime territory with  its occupier and prevailed.  Now, however, hc was too  old to move on again. His  teeth were broken and gave  him constant pain. He  weighed only 1,100 pounds  and the pain of his teeth and  thc gnawing hunger in his  belly made him surly and  disinclined to go far afield to  feed. He stood on a ridge  above thc valley and snuffed  thc scent of horses which  thc breeze carried him up thc  valley. It was new to his  nostrils and he was hungry.  He started down thc hill to  investigate.  The man and his wife  were new in thc Kispiox  Valley. Years of saving and  planning were behind them  and their long dream of a  horse ranch of their own  seemed near fruition, livery-  thing was very much in the  chaotic beginning stage of  homesteading. A rough shelter had been thrown up for  themselves with the long  term plan for the ranch house  awaiting a better time. A  corral for thc Arab stallion  and thc marc with thc foal  had been a priority and now  it was barn building time so  that the precious livestock  could have shelter from the  snows of the high country.  A ten year-old son and an infant daughter rounded out  thc family, along with a small  dog called Pesky which  had travelled with them from  the city.  The days were long and full  of labour and it was a tired  family who sat around their  kitchen table as thc day.  closed, full of the anecdotes  of the day and thc plans for  thc morrow. The lamps were  lit, the tea brewed, a guitar  Musings  John Burnside  Slings & Arrows  George Matthews  was picked up and thc sound  of cheerful song passed  through thc lighted window  and soothed the horses in  thc corral outside.  The grizzly bear came down  from thc ridge witli nothing  particular in mind except  Ids pain and his hunger and  this new intriguing smell  which hc wanted to investigate. As thc sounds from thc  farm house came to him he  paused and grunted. An old  disquiet from his previous  encounters with people came  back to him but hc was too  old and too surly to heed  the warning that it brought.  Again he grunted and swung  down towards thc lighted  farmhouse.  On thc edge of the light  close to the corral he paused  again. The smell was strong  now and hc could hear thc  sounds of the horses, grown  uneasy, as they moved restlessly in their corral. Somewhere thc dog barked insistently but the old bear had no  fear of dogs and shuffled into  thc farmyard.  The wife noticed thc barking dog just as she finished  the song she had been singing. "What's that, Tom?"  she asked her husband.  "Pesky sounds pretty excited,  alright," said the rancher.  "It may bc a bear or a cougar."  He went to the door and  threw it open and recoiled at  the sight. The old grizzly was  no more than twenty feet  away caught in thc circle  of light.  "My God, would you look  at that!"  His wife joined him at the  door and together they looked  in disbelief at the gaunt old  giant in their yard. The bear  looked belligerently back for a  moment before the quickwitted wife picked up a  saucepan and a spoon and to  thc accompaniment of her  husband's yells beat a swift  tattoo.  The old bear grunted and  raised himself to a height of  almost twelve feet on his  back legs. Around his legs  danced thc little dog, yapping  heroically. The bear disdained  him and gave his attention  to thc lighted doorway and the  people that it framed. Hc  peered and snuffed in their  direction and then, monumentally unimpressed,  shambled off into thc surrounding dark.  Back in thc farmhouse  behind the rcelosed door  there was considerable consternation.   "Tom,   did   you  see thc size of him? And he  wasn't scared. Do you think  he'll come back?"  "If he docs we'll have to  shoot him," said the rancher.  "He must bc after thc  horses."  There was no singing in the  farmhouse as night fell at thc  end of thc next day. Caught  in the tension of the occasion  the children were very still.  The baby slept and thc ten-  year old boy played in desultory fashion with some toy  cars. The mother sewed and  at the other side of the fire  the rancher stared unseeingly  at the farm catalogue in his  lit" l loaded rifle stood  against the wall by the door.  The waiting time was  mercifully short. Again there  came thc hysterical barking  from thc dog outside and from  the corral the drumming  hooves as the horses moved  restlessly about, "lt must  be him," said the rancher and  strode to the door.  The bear came steadily  from the darkness and was  already visible. There was no  mistaking his fearless pur-  poscfulness and without  hesitation the rancher shouldered his rifle and fired. The  grizzly went down but was up  in an instant and went roaring off into (lie night. The  rancher stared after him,  "Tom he's wounded, we've  got to go after him." The  rancher's wife pulled on her  gum bools and a windbreaker  and picked up a second rifle.  "Are you serious?" demanded her husband. "We  can't go after a wounded  grizzly in the dark."  "We must, Tom, he could  hurt someone."  Her husband paused a  moment. "Alright, let's go,"  and together they moved  through the friendly circle  of light toward thc darkness  which sheltered the bear.  To be Continued  The subject of last week's  column was the perceived  conspiracy on thc part of  big business and government  to attack the credibility of  labour unions. I suggested  that thc conspiracy was both  a conscious and unconscious  effort to create the illusion in  the public mind that the working man and through him,  labour unions, have become  so powerful as to pose a threat  to the nation's, in fact the  continent's, economic well  being. I further suggested  that such an illusion was pure  nonsense and that in fact the  working man had never been  in such a disadvantageous  position since thc I930's.  This week I would like to  pursue this theme by probing  further into the main weapon  in thc conspiracy, the creation  of a new management caste,  through which those in power  hope to manipulate both the  workers' and public opinion.  It should be re-emphasized  at this point that the issue in  question is not strictly a  Canadian one. In fact the  initial action in thc anti-  labour campaign came from  the United States and has  spread here by the usual  process of cultural osmosis  and the activities of multinational corporations. The  unusual number of labour  disputes in B.C. this summer  is only a small part of a  continental trend. U.S.  labour unions both large and  small have been faced with  lock-outs, wild-cat strikes and  stalled contract negotiations.  Again, the main issues are  not necessarily wages but the  attempt on the part of management to re-assert what it  perceives to be its authority  and the re-establishment of  a new order of industrial  discipline. Shop stewards  arc being fired or suspended  for minor infractions, workers  who display an inordinate  degree of leadership ability  FIRE AND ICE  by robert frost  Some say the world will end in lire,  Some say in ice.  From what I Ve tasted ol desire  I hold with those who favor lire.

This trend does  not only involve industrial  workers but service workers,  technicians, university  instructors, even school  teachers who in nine states  in the U.S. have gone on  strike to protest new trends  in education management  and the decline in thc quality  of education.  The new management class  is, interestingly enough, the  product of academics; industrial sociologists, behavioral  psychologists, management  training instructors, none of  whom have much experience  in actually putting their pet  theories into practice. The  entire exercise is supposedly  designed to "rationalize"  the work place.  Every year training courses  are held for managers and  administrators in which the  theories of these instructors  are passed on to people who  must actually put them into  practice. ihe theories, it  would seem, have grown  out of the computer age in  which it is thought everything  can be made predictable and  objective. Human beings  can be made to act in predictable enough ways that  thev become like components  in a rationally ordered structure and if a component fails,  or is not predictable enough  within a clearly defined range  of deviation then thc component is replaced. Little wonder that the pure joy of the  work place, thc spontaneity,  the human colour and much  of the challenge has been  removed from most work  today.  These management training courses are often sponsored by American firms in  business machines industries,  and arc offered by those  same sociologists and psychologists whose job it is to give  courses in management, not  to be- managers. Part of the  trend involves the transient  manager. It is thought by  industrial sociologists and  behavioral psychologists  that if thc manager is "in  place" too long, then the  tendency for him or her to  develop a personal commitment and personal responsibility for those he supervises  becomes too strong and his  judgement will be influenced LETTERS  Coast News, September 5,1978  3.  Unpaved  Marina opposition  Editor:  I wish to go on record as  being very much opposed to  the marina which is being  considered for Gibson's  Harbour.  I came here in I934 and  bought property later. My  first tax bill was for Sh.OO  and was paid to Bob Burns.  Now my present tax on a  33' lot Is $770.45. Just how  much more can I bc expected  to pay if this multinilllion  complex goes through?  I should like to point out  that although Ihcy claim to  have two million dollars to  start with, bolh the skating  rink and the swimming pool  cost far more than estimated  and the taxpayer had to pick  up the difference. With a 10%  inflation rate per annum the  building trades will not be  satisfied witli an 87C dollar,  and the cost will escalate out  of all proportion to the so-  called benefits of such a  marina.

Raftcamp Country  Locating the bunkhouse  whore Chris is staying, I  toss my gear on an empty  bunk and sit down to wait.  I've arrived at Carrington's  floatcamp at last after a flight  from Vancouver that had not  gone according to Hoyle.  About halfway to the Tribune Channel area ihat was  my destination, the engine  had suddenly developed an  alarming knock. It was evidently of a serious-enough  nature to alarm the pilot also  as he presently landed, tied-  up alongside the boom of  some   nameless   gyppo   anil  'ioecl lor help. After a  , isiclcniblc wail. three  I. avers droned in from  i    mpbcll   River   like   stubby  ils lo terry us ou our  separate ways. I'd heard  some disquieting rumours  about these pint-sized planes,  namely that they had virtually  no glide-capacity and tended  to drop from the sky like  slones if the motor quit. I  snuggled to suppress sueh  thoughts as I climbed into one  of the suspect craft with  another logger, bound for the  same general area.  I elected to sit next to the  pilot in thai cramped cabin  and soon regretted the choice  as wc droned through passes  whose rawrock walls seemed  close enough lo touch and Ihe  Heaver bucked like a feisty  horse in the updrafts. I felt  overwhelmingly vulnerable.  Ihe pilot was a Ihin man in  his late Ionics who spoke  little. Hc didn't look any  too healthy. I began, along  with my other forbodings, to  UNSHINE COAST  PEST CONTROL  ���  ���Confra^l $��rvlc  I&253I  Pages from a Life-Log  Peter Trower  imagine what would happen  were he suddenly to be  stricken wiih a heart-attack.  Between spasms of aerophobia and general paranoia. I  stole nervous glances at the  particular stretch of coast we  were bouncing over. It looked  little different from any other  part lo my untrained eyes  except ihai the mountains  appeared sleeper and ihere  seemed lo be more islands.  Glum green and roekblufl  grcj sireehed the fragmented  land cxccpl where orange-  brown slash scarred the  beaehless slopes. Between  lay heaving, jade sea. Often,  several A-frames were visible  al Ihe same time, each with  ils pen of captured logs and a  clutch of floating buildings  nearby. This was raftcamp  country. Flat land was at a  premium and the cheapest  way to log the rest was from  Ihe waler. Like a symbol  endlessly repealing itself.  ihe A-siiiks of the gyppo  camps la\ scattered to the  ragged horizon and beyond.  Just when I'd begin to relax  and drink in the spectacular  view, the plane hit another  air-pocket and jolted my  heart back into my mouth.  Wc dropped off the other  man, a sombrc-faccd Swede  taller, at an anonymous float  and forged on. This last leg of  the journey was mostly over  waler and relatively smooth.  At lasl we began to circle  above a motley collection of  flouting, shacks about a  quarter-mile to thc cast of  ui another A-frame show.  Soon Ihere were reassuring  planks under my feet. The  pilol nodded a terse goodbye  ami thundered away.  My first impression of thc  camp was that it seemed to  be operated by some pretty  old people. A stooped, grey-  haired man came limping to  greet me and led me to an  immaculate cookhouse where  two elderly ladies assessed  mc carefully and offered me  coffee. Ihe old man was Ross  Carrington; the two women,  his wife Mildred and her  sister. Emily. It was unlike  the set-up al anywhere else  I'd worked but no two gyppos  were the same. I signed the  usual forms for old Ross,  relinquished my Insurance  hook and retired to the bunkhouse.  Around five. I hear Ihe chug  of an approaching engine.  I walk lo the open door of thc  bunkshaek. The eampboat,  a battered troller with the  fishing-gear removed, pulls  in and half a dozen men,  sweaty from the hills, pile  off. They trudge towards one  or another of the two bunkhouses, my brother among  them. I stand with traces of  the foolish shyness that  often overcomes me in a new  camp, watching them approach. Chris spots me and  smiles like when we were kids.  Hc looks businesslike and  tough in grubby jeans and a  hickory shirt. It's good to  sec him. He'd preceded me  to Carrington's by a couple of  weeks on the understanding  that I'd follow when another  job came open.  After he's showered, 1  fill him in on my aeronautical  adventures. We're partners  again in the same camp after  a couple of solo excursions.  It's a comfortable feeling.  Shortly. the guthammer  rattles and wc head for the  cookhouse. Chris has mentioned that the grub is well  above average and it is  home-cooking of the best  variety as compared with the  indifferent chow, they throw  at you in most camps. Thc two  old ladies certainly know their  way around a kitchen but their  presence imposes an air of  decorum, curious to find  in a logging-camp dining-  room.     The  usual   profane  banter is conspicuous by its  absence and the object of  prim frowns whenever it  occurs. I've never seen such  a polite-spoken bunch of  loggers in my life, it's like  Sunday dinner at your maiden  aunt's. But thc quality of  thc food makes up for this  minor restraint.  I've hired-out as an A-frame  chaser, a job about which, I  know precisely nothing. lt  was the only opening available but now I began to have  misgivings. "Figure I can  handle il okay'.'" I ask Chris  back at the bunkhouse.  ".Sure." says Chris positively, "lis no big deal, .lust  keep your eyes open and you 'II  make out all right." I'm still  apprehensive. I've done very  little chasing of any kind.  My brush-experience at this  point is limited almost exclusively to setting-chokers  and blowing-whistles,  But I don't have much time  to dwell on it. Not many-  hours later, I'm standing on  thc massive raft under the  towering sticks that swerve  the same function as a spar-  tree, watching Chris and the  others toil up the face of the  pummelled mountain. The  A-frame is held off-shore by  a ram of Iashed-togethcr  logs called a Tyler gravity-  system, the first I've seen.  A skyline, tail-hotted to thc  back of thc raft, runs through  a jack at thc apex of thc sticks  and upmountain a thousand  feet or more to a just-visible  spar poking above the hill-  brink. The choked logs are  pulled free of the pile to a  special four-block carriage  that rides the skyline and  braked with the haul-back  down the steep slope. At the  bottom, a release-mechanism  i rips and drops the logs with a  mighty splash in the boom-  stick-encloscd waters of the  bullpen. My job is to unhook  them.  The big logs are no problem  but much of the timber is  small hemlock, spindly  poles that sink frustrating!}'  under   my   clumsy   weight.  iiin  STEREO  THIS COMPLETE SON Y  STEREO SYSTEM  FOR ONLY  $688  .00  SONY  ///ffflllllUV  LXZSSSSSSBSSiaLJ  *     H      . . m.        -  PST 1 Direct Drive Turntable with Shure  Cartridge.

Twilight  Theatre  This week's programme  at the Twilight Theatre presents a chilling thriller and an  affectionate spoof of thc  master of that genre. Alfred  Hitchcock.  The thriller is Swarm, a  topical thriller by thc 'master  of disaster' Irwin Allen. Based  on thc best-selling novel  by Arthur Hcrzog, the screenplay centres on a swarm of  killer bees heading for the  U.S. and thc efforts of military and civilian forces to  counter their progress. Killer  bees from Brazil, a product  of genetic backlash, are  indeed travelling slowly-  north. There have also been  actual reports of swarms of  bees attacking sniall groups  on picnic outings.  Some gripping music by  Academy Award winner Jerry  Goldsmith sets thc pace and  an all-star cast ensures a  memorable if frightening  movie. Heading the cast are  Michael Caine, Kalherinc  Ross and Richard Widmark  and there are five Oscar  winners in supporting roles:  Olivia de Haviland, Jose  Ferrer, Ben Johnson, Lee  Grant, and Patty Duke Astin.  Henry Fonda. Fred Mac-  Murray. Richard Chamberlin, Bradford Dillman and  Slim Pickens round out the  cast.  Swarm will bc shown at thc  local cinema Wednesday  through Saturday, September 6���9.  Mel Brooks is responsible  for the Hitchcock spoof,  High Anxiety, and it should  provide appropriate light  relief for local film-goers  after thc menace of Swarm.

General Notes: Jupiter, the  planet symbolizing opportunity, expansion and sheer good  luck, enters the sign of Leo  for one year, bringing fresh  chances for all of us. The following prognistications point  to thc life departments where  opportunities are most likely  to bc found during the next  twelve months. Those of you  with personalized astrological charts should locate the  'house' through which Jupiter  will transit and expect good  fortune therein. Regular  predictions resume next week.  ARIES (March 21-Aprll 19)  Prepare for opportunities to  extend social activities,  pleasures, amusements and  creative outlets. Speculate  or lake a chance with lotteries or love. Rxpect improved relationships with  children. Theatres or places  of entertainment figure  strongly.  TAURUS (April 20-May 2(1)  Accent is on improved  domestic conditions. I se the  next twelve months to remodel, redecorate or expand thc  home environment. A' rental  or real estate transactions are  favoured. Family problems  clear up, Relations with parents become more amicable.  Gl MINI (May 2I-June21|  All forms of short-disluikc  communications bring opportunities. Follow up all  suggestions relayed by phone  or mail. You'll bc in the  right place at the right lime.  Brothers, sisters, relatives  or neighbours arrange worthwhile introductions.  CANCER (June 22-Julv 22)  Prepare for opportunities  to increase financial How and  acquire possessions you've  always wanted. Conversely, beware over-indulgence  and over-spending as cash  tends to accumulate and  disappear quickly. Advice is  to save or invest wisely.  LEO (July 23-Aug.22)  Jupiter in your sign for  twelve months indicates it's  your turn to grab thc best  opportunities and enjoy  lucky breaks. Increased optimism, greater self-confidence  to date, certainly it is one of  his funniest. Brooks functions  in the film as producer-  director���star���co-author���  lyricist���composer and singer.  Madeline Kahn provides the  love interest and Harvey  Korman and Cloris Leach-  man supply much of the  comedy.  in all, nearly everything  works and thc total effect is  sheer pleasure. The film was  shot on location in San Francisco in Panavision and  Deluxe Colour and with an  inspired script by Brooks and  his cohorts, High Anxiety is  a sure winner, lt will bc shown  at thc Twilight Theatre  Sunday through Tuesday,  September 10���12.  and a willing personality  highlight popularity and  bring rewards. Warning:  those with weight problems  should restrict diet as Jupiter  expands not only the mind  but the body.  VIRGO (Aug.23-Sept.22)  Gains and rewards will be  linked to quieter, more private actitivies behind the  scenes. Advice is to seek  seclusion and contemplate  the spiritual and religious  dimensions of life. Prepare to  be of service to others,  especially the sick, the lonely  and confused. Chronic health  problems begin to respond  more favourably.  LIBRA (Sept.23-Oct.23)  Thc next twelve months  should see realization of  hopes, wishes and long  range plans thanks to opportunities presented by old  friends and acquaintances.  Benefits are gained through  group activities or community  projects so pull your weight.  SCORPIO (Oct.24-Nov.22)  Opportunities will be linked  to profession, career, public  standing and reputation.  Those in authority recognize  your accomplishments and  reward well. Many soon rise  to honourable or respected  positions. Those of you  seeking promotions should  act now. Credibility reaches  all-time high.  SAGITTARIUS (Nov.23-  Dec.21)  Opportunities   are   associated with people, places and  affairs far away. Long distance  communications  and foreign -  travel   bring   good   luck   so .  maintain contacts. Many will  be   in   a   more   optimistic,  philosophical frame of mind, i  Those returning to school or  seeking extra knowledge have  chosen the right time.  CAPRICORN (Dec.22-Jm.19)  Prepare   to   benefit   from  other     peoples'     financial <  affairs and resources.     It's I  a favourable period to borrow  money, equipment or start a ���  new   business   partnership, i  Long-term   investments,   tax |  or   insurance   matters   reap  long-awaited rewards.

Thc money  was poor, but thc experience  was priceless. I was taken on  largely owing to thc good  graces of thc Mate, Eric  Chlsholm, whose sympathy  with my plight overcame the  natural reluctance he must  have felt about taking on a  turkey whose nautical experience consisted of pre-adoles-  ccnt fishing-trips with Dad.  When I stepped aboard the  ship I knew enough not to  refer to the bow as "the  pointy end" or thc stem as  "the blunt end", but that  was about all. I drove Erie  crazy for awhile by constantly  calling the deck "the floor",  the. galley "thc kitchen",  and thc ports, "windows",  but 1 was so determined to  overcome these aggravating  landlubber habits that I now  confuse people by calling thc  floor "the deck", the kitchen  "the galley" and so on. The  ship had been built in 1929,  toward thc end of thc golden  days of great motor yachts.  She was no cadet-training  vessel by any means, being  built on thc lines of a luxury  liner (scaled down) but a.  good place to learn some very  basic seamanship and Eric  was a good teacher. He's  knocked about a good deal,  working on the same ship  once before in thc Thirties  between spells on thc coastal  freighters who once plied the  coast from San Diego to  Alaska, and hc taught mc  port from starboard, the maim  tainance of teak decks and  acres of varnish, some elementary chart navigation,  thc proper handling of lines,  and how to tie a knot I could  untie without cutting. Though  the groat days of sail are long  past, these last two skills  are still indispensable to anyone who wants to bc more  than ballast on thc water.  Here and there on the  ship there were examples of  the decorative ropework which  appears on thc lanyards, rails,  and rigging of many older  yachts and ships, but in  Seattle Eric took me aboard  a boat owned by one of his  acquaintances, the pilot of  another yacht, and I saw what  could really be done with  odds and ends of rope:  the stanchions were wrapped  with tight netting, Turk's  Heads (those three and four  strand braided circlets often  used to mark the midship  spoke on a ship's wheel)  encircled the rails at intervals, and woven rope mats  guarded thc tops and bottoms  of thc gangways. When I  expressed my admiration  for thc work, Chris, the boat's  owner, and Eric began teaching me some of the simpler  techniques. It had been  awhile since Eric had done  any of that kind of work and  I was a complete novice,  but wihin a few days our  enthusiasm had studded the  rails of our ship with Turk's  Heads, sheathed assorted  liquor bottles with ornamental  netting, and improved thc  deck of our foesle home with  a rope mat or two, not to  mention clearing the ship  completely of thc odds and  cuds of worn rope that accumulate on rails and in lockers.  Just as wc were about to  sail from Seattle, Chris  loaned us a book on thc subject, which helped grease the  wheels in Erie's memory  and improved my education  considerably, lt was called  The Arts of Ihe Sailor, by  Hervcy Garrett Smith, and it  covers, as I soon found out, a  much wider range of subjects  than ornamental ropework.  lt is intended, I think successfully, as a handbook for the  yachtsman, by which actual  sailing techniques arc mentioned only in one chapter.  For thc most part, thc book is  devoted to thc basic skills  and safety procedures with  which any boat owner, or  passenger for that matter,  should be familiar.  Thc book begins with a  chapter on thc anatomy of  rope and cordage. Smith  explains thc composition of  rope and sniall "stuff";  lines, twine and marline, and  offers observations on its  advantages, disadvantages,  various uses, and behaviour  under varying climatic conditions. He provides a succinct  glossary of terms connected  with ropework and sailing in  general and discusses sailor's  tools, the fid and marlin-  spikc, even commenting on  the correct choice of a knife.  (A small sheath knife is his  choice; easier to get at in a  pinch, when you often have  only one hand free and  neither thc time nor the dexterity to fish a clasp knife out  of a pocket and open it.)  His chapters on knots and  splicing arc the most valuable  to the novice since they're  accompanied by the author's  own excellent and explicit  drawings. There arc chapters on hand-sewing and  canvaswork, cleats and belaying pins, rope-strapped  blocks, instructions on how to  rig a boatswain's chair and  By Maryanne West  Harvest fever in Saskatchewan to traditional sea  shanties, crime dramas from  contemporary Toronto to  folk singing on Salt Spring  Island arc part of the fare  offered this week on CBC  Radio. Between Ourselves,  Saturday, 6:15 p.m. documents the life of a Saskatchewan farming community  at harvest time, from the first  round of the combine, through  thc anxiety and excitement of  bad weather and breakdowns  to thc delivery of thc biggest  harvest in 1976.

Chris' edition of thc book  was a well-thumbed old hardback published in 1953 by  D.Van Nostrand Company  Inc. Much as 1 wanted a  copy of my own for reference.  I was sure that, with my  luck, it would bc out of print  and I would spend thc next  few years trying to remember  thc title every time 1 went  into a second-hand bookshop.  I was delighted when, months  later, Eric presented me with  a paperback copv, published  by Funk and Wagnalls (1968).  Hervey Garrett Smith has  spent thc greater part of his  life designing, building and  sailing his own boats. He  has also written Boat Carpentry and thc Small-Boat  Owner's Bible. If you're thinking of buying your first  sailboat, even if you've owned  a boat for years or simply  go sailing with friends on a  regular basis. The Arts of thc  Sailor, at $1.75. is the best  investment you could make.  it's consistently clear and  humourously written, studded  with illustrative anecdotes,  and it goes a long way toward  preparing you for whatever  might happen out on the salt-  chuck. If you tried sailing this  summer and liked it. spend  the winter reading The Arts  of the Sailor and helping  somebody scrape and paint  the bottom of his boat. You  might as well know what  you're getting into.

At the outset. 1 acknowledge thai any definition will  bc an oversimplification and  that there is often artistic  merit in movies which are  studio dominated, and lack  of il in directors' films.  Since "ail film" is likely  to be thought of as film which  is suffocatingly slow and dismally dreary. 1 am going (o  abandon Ihe lerm and endeavor lo draw a distinction  between what I will call  "movies", which would not  be thought of as "art films",  and what I will call "films",  which would, Willi movies,  the producer and the production lean) are the dominating force, and the director  is simply pari of lhc studio  team. Ihe person who tells  the camera man where lo  place lhc camera and tells the  actors how to say their lines.  Sueh a person usually has  little or no say in the matter  of financing, scripting, casting or even in thc editing of  the motion picture with which  he or she is involved, These  motion pictures are often  noteworthy for professional  teamwork of considerable  skill, and it should also bc  noted that several gifted  people sueh as Rene Clair,  Ernst Lubilseh and Josef von  Sternberg, among others were  able to put their individual  stamps on movies made under  impersonal factory conditions.  Others, such as Billv Wilder.  John Ford. Alfred Hitchcock  and William Wyler were both  producer and director. Generally, however, the movie is  explicit and complete in itself,  predictable, and made for a  passive audience from well-  worn and tried formulae.  Film, on the other hand, is  the personal statement of an  author who is his own producer and director, and it  involves thc audience in implications posed which demand  their active participation.  Audiences for the film demand as did Diaghilev of die  young Jean Coctcau: "Astonish mc".  In Europe, the motion  picture has long been thc  realm of ihe director, bin ihis  has very rarely been thc ease  in Hollywood until fairly  recently when the moguls  have been seeking ways lo  lure ihe fickle audiences  away from Iheir television  sets. In attempts to accomplish this, they have been willing to lake chances on lhc  vision of individual directors  sueh as Stanley Kubrick. Mike  Nichols and Robert Allnian.  among others. Ihese men  enjoy complete artistic  control over the motion pictures they make lo an extent  thai was extended only once  lo Orson Welles (for (id/en  Kane) after which he was.  in effect, an exile, a misfit  with loo large an ego and too  greal a talent lo lake a place  within a studio system dominated by tycoons and producers.  Some of thc elements which  determine whether a motion  picture is thought of as a  film or as a movie have  nothing lo do with aesthetics.  Ihe motion picture in a foreign language or dialect is  harder lo appreciate than is  the domestic product. A  British movie will be thought  of as a film by many even  when it is a direct deseendent  of the Hollywood studio  system.  Nol everybody wants, with  Diaghilev. lo be astonished,  and Ihere is a need for Ihe  simple, unpretentious cnter-  tainmeill offered by Ihe  movie. Regular commercial  motion pictures, however, are  by no means all simple and  straightforward, Roberi  Allnian. Iwo or three of whose  films will be shown in the  revised firsl series, says:  "I always try to make a film  commercial". Nevertheless.  Allnian is considered to be  one of the most innovative  of modern American directors,  and die improvisatory spiril  of his films has frequently  been commented upon.  Ihe first series is set  to commence on Wednesday.  September 20 at 1:00 p.m.  Ihe Twilight Theatre's  regular programmes will bc  broughl forward to 7:00 p.m.  in accommodate the Film  Society's programmes, Full  details of thc first four films  will be announced in next  week's newspaper.

I ran a picture last week of  a bird which has been friendly  to thc natives in Lower Gibsons, and called it a female  red-winged blackbird. Since  then I've been getting calls  from people saying "it's a  cow bird isn't it?"  Well, so many people said  this, that I was becoming  convinced that I was wrong,  but I went out yesterday  armed with $11.25 and bought  another bird guide, opened it  up at a page with the female  red-wing and the female  cow bird side by side, and  showed it to one of the disbelievers. He immediately  pointed to the red-wing and  said "That's it," so my  reputation is once again  secure (on this subject anyway). Just to keep the ball  rolling. I went into a cafe,  on Tuesday, and you've  guessed it, there was the bird  again. Since it had been the  instrument for casting aspersions on thc validity of  my observations, I decided to  give it a cold shoulder, so  taking absolutely no notice  of it I ordered a bowl of  soup. I made the fatal mistake  of crunching up my crackers  inside the cellophane before  putting them in the soup  (if me old mother heard I  was doing this, she'd have a  fit; manners dictate that  you're supposed to take a  dainty nibble of the cracker  then a mouthful of soup ��� this  is supposed to stop you from  being ungenteel or something) and the bird immediately forgot about my standoff-  ishness and perched on my  soup bowl for a handout.  As all on-the-spot photographers should, I had my  camera with me and snapped  a picture of it. I've included  it here so the identification  game can continue.  I haven't seen the little  crater around for a few days.  Hope it didn't end up as a  tidbit for one of the resident  cats.  Western grebe:  Dr. Dennis Bailey had an  interesting customer last  week. A call came in from a  gentleman in Roberts Creek  that he had found a western  grebe on the beach. It had  been, he thought, molested  by dogs. He tried returning  it to the water, but it just sat  dejectedly and he was worried  that dogs would get it again,  so he took it down to Dennis  at the animal clinic.  You've no idea how beautiful the red of their eye is  until you see it up close.  Dennis was a bit worried  that it may have some nervous disorder, as it didn't  seem to have complete control of its feet; apart from  this it looked quite chipper.  We took it down to Armours  Beach where there was less  chance of dogs being around  and set it in the water, for  another chance. It didn't  rush around madly, happy to  be free or anything, which  was a bit of a worry. Instead  it made its leisurely way out  to deep water and away. On  thc chance that it doesn't  make it, it would really be  appreciated if you could keep  your eyes open if you're on  the beach between Gibsons  and Hopkins in ease it gets  washed up. If this is the ease  and you find it, I'll send it off  to see if there is any poison  in it. These birds are susceptible to pesticides and sueh.  Pigeon:  While I was at the clinic,  Dennis showed me a pigeon  we are open:  Mon.���Fri.  6a.m.���9p.m.  Weekends  7a.m.���4 p.m.  tinent.  I haven't found any penguins in it as yet; maybe  I missed them.  Hunting:  The hunting season is  on us again. Jamie Stephens,  the Conservation Officer,  tells me that this year evidence of species and sex  will be required. This means  that the animals and birds  will have to have evidence  of the sex and species still  attached to them. See page  six of your 78-79 hunting  regulations. This law has  been in effect for three years  but it was not upheld too  strictly; thc period of grace  is now over and the regulation  is now being enforced. The  minimum fine for not following this is $.15.  I noticed a couple of interesting things in thc regulations that I hadn't known  since it's a long time since  I've done any hunting.

What  could or should I do?  Lack of Love  Dear lack of Love:  I always think first of the  physical. Young doctors  have had success with treating this condition. Thc B  vitamins in therapeutic doses  have helped. That is about  1,000 miligrams of B's which  have no known side effects.  Take vitamin BI2 and K and  zinc, lots of C and calcium.  If you aren't sexy after all that  at least you will be healthier.  I have written on this subject before. Smoking and  alcohol are the enemies of  sex. So it's a big job to change  these habits. In your eyes I  am sure it is worth it. Next,  consider die mental outlook.  Sometimes a job causes in-  liniidalions. men persist  at a hated job but il leaves  little energy for the leisure  hours. Some women hen-  peek men and take away  their manly feelings, and  their sex drive. Yes, you can  help. Kind the cause, nol  an easy task, then proceed.  GETTING  'BOMBED'  IS DYNAMITE!

I turned Dennis on  to Len Wray who keeps  pigeons and its place of  origin should be able to be  traced by the band number.

While I was watching them,  I had a chat with Norm Hof-  far, who had seen a short-  eared owl a day or two before.  This was thc same species of  owl that was in the paper  last week, although it was still  alive.  I'm going on holidays for a  couple of weeks.

In only nine starts,  he also shows two seconds  and three thirds. He's been  out of the money only once,  and that was in his first start  of the season, a sprint over  a sloppy track. Nobody wants  to bet him. He paid $11.50  for that last win and went off  at an amazing 25-1 in one one  stakes in which hc placed  second.

Two Bowls of Rice didn't  look like much when he  started racing at the age of  two in 1976. Hc ran four times  finishing third once.

Each year of course we have  a turn over of leaders and  were sorry to lose Mrs. Judi  Killam as' Brown Owl of Wilson Creek pack. Judi has  put in several years with  this pack and will be sorely  missed.  The Guide Companies  suffered leader losses when  Mrs. Pat Robson of Pender  Harbour Guide Company  moved to Burnaby; Mrs.  Joan Hoff of Sechelt moved to  Alberta and Mrs. Anne Buckle  of Sechelt felt she wanted to  give her time to other things.  All these leaders will be  missed.  The one gap which will be  most difficult to Fill however  will be our Camp Advisor  who will be leaving the area  and leaving Guiding as well  after many years of service  to girls all over the province.  Mary Johnson has put in  yeoman service as Browrl  Owl, Guide Captain, Ranger  Leader, District and Division  Commissioner, Trainer, Camp  Advisor but most of all as a  friend to all in Guiding.

Strange how we can always  someone better off than  llrsclves without even looking,  and hc found us without even  seeing. Perhaps he is a real  man. Richard Needam describes  a real man as one who never  complains. Maybe you arc for-  tunatc enough to know one of  these people,  Art Rowells of Pratt Road  comes lo mind. Hc is not blind  or crippled, in fact his only  affliction may be his infectious  good natured grin. I first met Art  several years ago when he rode  his small motorcycle out for a  tunc up. It was early spring, so  early in fact thc roads were slill  glazed with enough frost to make  standing up difficult, much less  riding a motorcycle. Art has  ushered in spring for us in this  manner ever since. The fact  that he beats the robins shows  his youthful enthusiasm. He is  very good at it, but then he has  seen eighty-two springs. I am  sure he remembers most of them  and has enjoyed all of them.  Art lives in a small ivy covered  home he built himself, surrounded by the positive mementoes  of a happy life. It soon becomes  obvious his main love is horses.  To put that in perspective, the  first thing one sees on entering  his home is a large framed  colour reproduction of a photo  by Richard Avidon, that I had  often admired, lt shows a buckskin horse with a flying blonde  mane running through thc tall  golden grass. Followed by a high  stepping tanned, equally nude  woman, her blonde mane also  flying. I immediately respected  him for his taste in horses, photographs and women; none of this  Tom Mix kissing your horse  business.  Art purchased his first motorcycle from Fred Dccly in 1935.  He describes it as a motorized  bicycle. He has owned many  motor bikes since that time, of  various types and sizes. During  his time on the King Ranch, both  in Texas and California, when he  wasn't riding horses he was  riding motorcycles. And if he  was ever over parked it never  cost him his pleasant disposition.  Art doesn't ride far anymore.  Just to take his garden tools  with him to his job. Hc says one  thing about a motorcycle, "If  you don't ride it you don't have to  feed it." KeeponStrokin'.

I cranked up the stereo Back" when I thought I'd  and dashed to my favourite better get more tangible proof  chair, ready to be treated to of this repetition. So I played  more brilliance from Scholz the album again and figured j  out each song's chorus  and wrote down the basic  chords. Then, to facilitate  comparison, I transposed  each chorus into the key of  A. What 1 found was most  disconcerting. Five out of  seven songs used the same  four chords for the chorus:  F#minor, A.D.E. No wonder  each song sounds like the  last one. It is like the last  one. As it turns out, of the  two remaining songs only  "Party" rates as a first class  song. It might have even  made it on Boston I but then  Boston II would have lost its  last ounce of credibility.  I also noticed that the  overall sound quality of  "Don't Look Back" wasn't  as good as its illustrious  predecessor. The explanation  could lie in the fact that  Boston I was recorded in  various established studios  such as Capitol and The Record Plant while Boston II was  recorded in Tom Scholz'  private studio.  This album is almost void  of good leads of any duration  or importance. What a huge  disappointment for an album  conceived, written and  produced by a lead guitarist.  And lyrics. They had some  nerve printing them on the  record sleeve, as if they  were worth reading and  cherishing or something.  They're not. A more juvenile  collection of garbage you'll  never find, except maybe on  a Kiss album.  and Company.  Well, what did I expect  anyhow? After all, it's hard  to come up big twice in a row  (Fleetwood Mac did). Ah,  but this couldn't be. Maybe  my taste had soured on the  Boston sound in general.  1 played Boston I just to be  sure. No, it was still great  music. Then what was the  problem with "Don't Look  Back"?  The problem has to do with  Boston's unmistakable  sound and style. It's too  unmistakable. Even repetitious. Specifically, the whole  of Boston II is very much like  certain parts of Boston I.  Sort of as if they retrieved all  thc left over ideas from two  or three of the songs from the  first album and stuck it all  together to form Boston II.  To make matters worse,  the execution of this leftover  junk is as repetitious as the  junk itself. The tone of  Scholz' guitar never changes.  Ever. The same old fuzzy,  raunchy rock and roll sound,  song after song. Also, in most  rock music there are basically  two scales for leads: major  and minor. Each has its  separate merits and uses.  But Scholz always plays his  leads in the major scale.

Send  your entries to the Coast News, Box 460, Gibsons. Last week's winner was  Dorothy Lukacs of Box 768, Gibsons, who correctly located the sculpture  on Ihe Humms' property in Selma Park.  divider Wise, who saw it as  a way of providing water to  his development, and presented the District with a  petition in favour of such a  system. The District received  this petition and processed  it through the regular channels, but only because they  were duty-bound to do so.  In assuming the District was  itself advancing the system  when it was only giving  Wise's petition standard  treatment, Harrison and the  Harbour people were guilty  of jumping to conclusions  and the mistake was theirs.

Given that Almond's story  has some bad holes in it and  no one else at the District  is offering a better one, we  arc left to speculate as to  what really happened.  Whatever the final explanation, this latest development  in thc case of the disappearing  waterworks has not done the  Regional District's image any  good. In spite of Almond's  protestations to the contrary,  many people in the Harbour  feel that the fix was in and thc  only thing that stopped the  unwanted waterworks from  going ahead this time was  their own opposition and that  of Harrison, their representative on the Board. To them  Almond's attacks on Harrison appear vindictive and they  wonder at thc chairman's  role in this affair. The question has been raised as to  who is really running the  show down at Regional Works  and when thc disappearing  waterworks is going to slink  back into the picture again.  Utilities  Continued from Page One  Economic advisor Owen  said that the provincial  government was willing to  deal with thc Sechelt Indian  Band about the corridor  through their lands. "It  is possible that the Provincial Government is putting  a wedge between the Band  and the Regional Board,"  said Owen. It was the position of thc delegation from the  Indian Band that the next  step was up to thc Regional  Board and the Municipality  of Sechelt since it was over  land under their jurisdiction  that the problem lay.  Weather  The wettest August in the  seventeen years for this  recording station with 12.82  cms.

Lockstead  WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 30,  1978: By the time this column  appears, the federal leader of  the Social Credit Party, Mr.  Lome Reznowski will have  complete his visit to B.C.  It remains to be seen how  many of the provincial cabinet  ministers, let alone the Social  Credit backbenchers, will turn  up at Mr. Reznowski's speaking engagements. It seems  odd. After all, when federal  NDP leader Ed Broadbent  appears at various centres  throughout B.C., the local  provincial NDP M.L.A. is  always in attendance. Ed  Broadbent's success with  national issues reflects  well on thc NDP provincially.  His comments, for example,  when he was last out in B.C.  about price-gouging taking  place by food chain stores  mirror the provincial party's  concern for the economy.  Similarly, Mr. Broadbcnt's  anger over thc continuing  high    unemployment    rates  in B.C. and the rest of thc  country is an anger shared by  thc provincial party as well.  Such a parallel between  federal leader and provincial  party policy is only true in  some cases as far as the  Socreds are concerned. Mr.  Reznowski, for example,  has stated that the banks and  the legalization of abortion  are responsible for the dire  times we are now experiencing. Human Resources  Minister Bill Vandcr /aim  backed up Mr. Reznowski's  ideas when questioned by  NDP M.L.A.'s in the Legislature this spring.  The right wing has, of  course, more issues than those  listed above. Every second  month, for example, each  M.L.A. in the Legislature  receives the United Right-to-  Work newsletter. This out-  rightly anti-union propaganda  sheet originates ��� in Surrey ��� where else? ��� the  home of Mr. Vandcr /aim.  Its contents arc always  strident  about  the  evils   of  unions and very long on what  it perceives as undemocratic  features of unions. At the  moment its wrath is directed  at public sector employees.  This is no coincidence. The  next major contract up for  renewal as far as the provincial labour scene is the  C.U.P.E. agreement. It will  affect most municipalities in  the province in the next six  months. Time will tell how  much anti-union hysteria this  newsletter can whip up in the  interim.  aSSV*X\^t***?S*.1  CANADIAN  POWER  SQUADRONS  BOATING COURSE  REGISTRATION  Courses will commence  7 p.m., Wed.,Sept.6  at   Sechelt   Elementary  School (Mr.Gray's  room)     and     Madeira  Park   Elementary   (Library).
