Assembled for the occasion were  fifty of Gibsons' most venerable residents, all of whom had been  living here at least since 1929 when the village was commemorated.  The highlight of the ceremony was the presentation of a beautiful commemorative scroll and an anniversary gold coin to each  of the pioneer residents. The scroll and the coins were distributed to the recipients by M.P. for the area, Jack Pearsall,  by M.L.A. Don Lockstead, and by the Hon. Bob McLelland  representing the provincial cabinet.  Mayor Lome Blain capably "When I phoned some of  handled the role of master of the old-timers to invite them  ceremonies. In introducing the  recipients of scrolls and coins,  he said:  "It seems only appropriate  that this celebration should  honour the fine people who  have contributed so much to  making Gibsons the gentle,  kind, tolerant, and generous  place that it is.  to this presentation they  asked 'What have I done?'

Sechelt fires  Village Clerk  A special meeting of the  Sechelt Council was called on  Wednesday, March 14.  The first motion put to the  meeting was moved by Alderman MacDonald and  seconded by Alderman Kolibas that Tom Woods'  engagement as an officer of  the Village be terminated as  provided in Section 188-6-  (a) (i) of the Municipal Act  effective March 14, 1979, and  that in lieu of notice he receive  five months salary in addition  to the wages and holiday pay  earned to March 14,1979.  The   motion  was  carried  unanimously.  In connection with this,  it was also moved that the  firm of W.K.Smith and Associates be engaged to provide  interim services. The ceiling  for these services was set at  $1,900 per month.  The Acting Clerk and  Treasurer for Sechelt in the  interim will be Mr. Ron C.  Gibbs, the retired Clerk for  the City of North Vancouver.  Mayor Nelson's comment  on the Clerk's termination  was, "In the same position  in another village, it may have  worked out. In this situation,  it didn't."  looking after homes and  rearing children. These are  the heroes who created the  delightful town in which we  live.  ' 'Mrs. Blain and I know that  when grief strikes the good  people of Gibsons rally round  and help in countless different ways."  The cast of the C.B.C. T.V.  series The Beachcombers was  also well-represented at the  commemoration. Series  stars Bruno Gerussi and Robert Clothier jointly read a  proclamation in high style  announcing the Beard Growing Contest which will mark  this Fiftieth Year. The event  will be judged during the  weekend of the Sea Cavalcade in August.  Music for the occasion was  provided by the band of Elphinstone Secondary School  under the most able baton of  Mr. Bill Rayment. The  school band was resplendent in their new blue and  white uniforms and were  splendidly located on the roof  of the Gibsons Museum. They  provided a half-hour of most  tuneful entertainment before  the commemoration ceremonies began and delightful accompanying interludes  at appropriate moments during the ceremonies,  Miss Melanie Mahlman,  Miss Gibsons 1978, graced the  platform along with the visiting dignitaries and spoke  warmly of her pleasure at  being back home for the  occasion. Melanie is presently studying at the University of Victoria.  After the wrap-up of the  touching and appropriate commemoration the scene shifted  to the Municipal Hall for tea,  coffee and the magnificent  birthday cake which had been  prepared for the occasion by  Mr. Jan de Reus of the Super  Valu bakery. Nor was the cake  merely decorative. When the  writer paused to reload his  camera, he returned to find  that the cake was half eaten.  All in all, it was generally  agreed that it was a most  satisfying occasion. Over the  tea and coffee and cake,  Gibsons residents chatted and  reminisced. All agreed that  the staff of the Municipal  Hall, Village-Clerk Jack  Copland in particular, and the  ladies who assisted with the  refreshments, had combined  to mark the Golden Anniversary of the Village in a  memorable and satisfying  manner.  Most of the assembled group of fifty-year residents honoured at the  ceremony In Gibsons commemorating the village's 50th Anniversary  are pictured hece. More pictures on Page 6.

According to Howard White, secretary of the Pender Harbour and District Ratepayers Association, C.B.C. correspondent Scott McCloy has been doing background work on the  powerline question for the past week and plans to give the issue  priority coverage. White said he feels the province-wide news  coverage gives the March 31 meeting added importance and  hopes the community will take advantage of the chance to make  their feelings about the powerline known by turning out in  big numbers and speaking their minds.  "This is really our last chance to get our position on the project across to the public at large," White said. "The point we  have to make is the obvious one, namely, that the northern  Sechelt Peninsula with its beautiful harbours, lakes and waterways is not the appropriate location for a huge powerline  right-of-way."  White says local people have no need to become deeply involved in the technical arguments Hydro is putting forward for  locating the line on the northern peninsula. "The economic  issues, the technical issues, we don't have to worry about  because they have Hydro to speak for them and Hydro does the  job most forcefully," W.iite says. "What we have to speak for  is this magnificent part of the country which has been entrusted to us, because it has only us to speak for it.

The way it  is now those who are responsible in their waste disposal are  subsidizing those who are not." As an example, Gibb mentioned that two houses were delivered to the Gibsons dump the  other day. "That can't be called normal household garbage,"  understated Gibb.  Qlbsons Firemen had a valuable practice last week when they burned down the  derelict property In the Bay Area in Qlbsons.  Alternate Director Vera  McAllister of Area A questioned the need for a referendum in her area. "We've  had referendum after referendum," said McAllister,  "and in every one we have  clearly stated that we don't  want a garbage pick-up service. We don't need it."  P.U.C. Chairman Harry  Almond pointed out that it  might be necessary to close  the Pender Garbage Dump  because it does not conform to  Pollution Control Branch standards! George Gibb suggested that perhaps Area A and  Gibsons could deal with their  own waste disposal. "Let  them get sites and permits  and deal with the Pollution  Control Board if they are not  satisfied," said Gibb.

The  sun shone on a hazy blue day, the speeches were short, the band played well  and the take was excellent.  It was a most happy thought to have  the keystone of the ceremony a recognition of the pioneer energies that shaped  the village in the persons of those veteran  Gibsonitcs who lived here when the village was oiiginally incorporated. It was  heartwarming to see gathered together  in thc sunshine that stalwart group of  fifty-year residents. Their names read  like an evocation of the history of the  village and the Village Council and its  staff arc to be most highly commended  for the good taste and planning that  went into this affair.  The Village of Gibsons has been going  through some rough times of late as It  endured the acute pains of a growth  spurt. It is to be hoped that this Fiftieth  Anniversary year will see the residents,  the local businesses and the Village  Council moving forward confidently into  a dynamic and an imaginative future.  The real challenge that lies before us  here on the Sunshine Coast is to be  worthy in our people doings of the magnificent geographic setting in which  we find ourselves. If we have within us  intact the energy and the vision and the  capacity to endure with hope that was  represented at Saturday's ceremony by  our fifty-year residents, we will do well.  A solid report  George Gibb presented his final recommendations to the Regional Board last  week about the future of solid waste  disposal on the Sunshine Coast. It is the  opinion here, and we have expressed it  before, that the residents of the Sunshine Coast have been extremely well-  served by Director Gibb in this connection. George has done a solid, well-  researched, and sensible job of work and  the path ahead for local solid waste disposal can now be discerned.  What he has recommended will not be  to everyone's liking. Indeed two directors have already expressed reservations  or opposition, but it is the opinion from  this corner that in asking us to look at the  problem and to accept responsibility for  the wastes that we create Director Gibb  is entirely in tune with the times. Whether on a planetary, an industrial, or a  regional level, we cannot long continue to  foul our habitat with impunity. When he  says, "Garbage is making us one community," he is speaking wisely. That is  not to say that the individual characteristics of our mini-communities which we  prize so highly and rightly so, must be  sacrificed before the maw of progress,  but we must force ourselves to confront  the problem of solid waste disposal with  all the logic at our command. If we confront, the tproblem with logic and cooperation we can solve Itffttot fBfthe short  term alone but for the future also. If we  do not it will defeat us in the end.  Support for Channel 9  We have been hearing a good deal of  complaint about the imminent loss of  P.B.S. Channel Nine from our cable-  vision. In our somewhat limited experience of television watching it has seemed  for some time now that Channel Nine has  been filling a huge void in television programming with its consistent dedication  to quality television. If this impression is shared by a goodly number of  the residents of the Sunshine Coast then  perhaps something can be done about it  ��� but it must be done now.  Last week we gave the addresses  of the C.R.T.C. in Ottawa and Vancouver.  In Vancouver the address is: #11, 701  Georgia Street. In Ottawa, it is The  C.R.T.C, Ottawa, Ontario, K1A 0N2.  The recommendation is that letters be  written to both places. They need not be  long but they should be definite. If there  are not enough people who will take the  trouble to write it will mean that not  enough people cared whether Channel  Nine stayed or went and it will go.  from the files of Coast Nam  Ok?   *�����&., ta        erfli-  5 YEARS AGO  Mayor Larry Labonte has decided  to meet with wharf users to see what  can be done about cleaning up the  pollution problem here.

Musings  John Burnside  "Fascinating," said the  young lady who handles the  morning interviews on the  C.B.C. radio. "Fascinating,"  I snorted. "Is she kidding?"  But apparently she was not.  The subject of the interview was the bunker for  Very Important Persons  situated near Nanaimo which  will be their shelter in the  event of a nuclear war. Very  Important Persons, of course,  means politicians, senior  civil servants, and the military. The man she was interviewing had a brisk, officer-  type English voice and made  the whole thing sound like  the most matter of fact and  routine matter in the world.  She did, in the course of an  interview that was as inane  as her closing comment, manage to touch on a couple of  key points. She wondered  what fhe target would be locally in the event of nuclear  war. "Vancouver," he replied. "What about the Trident base in northern Washington?" "That, too,"  said he. "When these people  come out of the bunker after  fourteen days, will there be  anyone left for them to  govern?" "Oh, yes," said  Captain Brisk. "Of course,  not in the immediate target  area. But elsewhere, certainly." "What if someone  shows up and wants to get  into the bunker that isn't  supposed to?" she queried.  "Oh, they'll have to have a  pass," said the voice, which  belonged apparently to the  Provincial Emergency Programme Co-ordinator.  They'll have to have a pass I  And if they don't? Can you  see Mr. and Mrs. Joe Canuck  showing up at the shelter and  have Captain Brisk explain  to them that they and their  three kids will just have to  die because they don't have a  pass. The only way that will  be made to stick will be if it  is backed up with machine  guns and the chances are  those machine guns will  have to be used.  Before an inattentive reader  thinks that Burnside is self-  indulgently reporting his  nightmares or his wildest  fantasies, let me repeat that  this is an interview on Good  Morning Radio on the C.B.C.  It's not my fault that it is  incredible.  Back in 1960 or thereabouts  when the evening classes at  Sir George Williams University, now called Concordia,  were regularly interrupted by  the sound of air raid sirens  and civil defence exercises, I  was in a rather mediocre play  the name of which escapes  me. It is memorable to me now  only because it was the only  time I ever worked onstage  with the audience completely  around the playing area and  because of its subject matter.  I thought, even with the sound  of the air raid sirens interrupting the performance, that  it was pretty melodramatic  stuff.  "  It wis d play about a bomb  shelter. You may remember  that in the late fifties and  early sixties there was quite a  thriving business in North  America in bomb shelters for  the home in the event of  nuclear war. The play dealt  with precisely this question.  Who is to be allowed into the  bomb shelter? I played a  grandfather living with my  son who owned the shelter  and there was considerable  soul-searching before it was  agreed that the grandfather  should be allowed to share the  rations and the shelter. There  was no such doubt about the  neighbours. If they hadn't  provided themselves with a  shelter then they would just  have to die. Of course, the  neighbours didn't see it that  way and the play ended with a  gun battle at the door of the  shelter while real life air raid  sirens sounded outside.  I took the part of the grandfather and played it to the best  of my ability but I was convinced that it was much too  melodramatic and that nothing remotely like it would  ever happen. Till last week,  that is.  Now, in these ramblings in  our little newspaper I have  really no wish to be alarmist.  1 wrote a few weeks ago a  column in which I quoted Ben  Metcalfe as saying that  nuclear war was now 'thinkable' as a policy in international relations but I did not  think to hear corroboration  quite so quickly. The bunker  in Nanaimo must be just one  of many throughout North  America and quite frankly I  find it alarming that the  people who arrange our affairs are quietly arranging for  their personal safety in the  event of nuclear war. Is there  anyone out there who can  greet with equanimity the  concept that they and their  children are expendable in the  event of the nuclear holocaust?  What I want to know in this  free society of ours is, where  are the debates taking place  which decide what will happen  in the event of nuclear attack?  Where is the politician who  stands in public and says that  he must be saved but we must  not? It is not too soon to ask  some very searching questions. The bunkers are built  and provisioned and the lists  of those who will not die have  Please turn to page three  Afternoon  In the clear sky strange Hying machines  cut trails on the wind with their wings,  and white temples are reflected In the dark water  of the deep Inlet beneath the stone pinnacles.

The Ministry  of Personpower, Immigration,  Unemployment, Psychic  Phenomena and Bagel Marketing finally brought the  unemployment problem under  control.  The story of this amazing  economic breakthrough reads  like an Horatio Alger novel.  Failure after frustrating failure had, through hard work,  stubbornness, faith and a belief in the Almighty, been  turned into success.  Like most heroic struggles,  this saga began in the most  modest and unpretentious of  settings; an austere cubicle  in the research assistants'  block of Statistics Canada, in  Ottawa. Jean Paul Smith, a  sheepish and insignificant  researcher, happened, by  pure chance, to stumble upon  some remarkable figures from  a 1975 Statistics Canada survey. The survey was conducted for the apparent  purpose of finding out how  many Canadians used more  than one sex manual when  plotting strategies for making  love; but was really an  attempt to discover how many  leaky faucets there were in  the country. The study was  filled out by eighty percent of  Canadian homeowners and  administered at gunpoint by  the R.C.M.P. and Armed  Forces Canada, to ensure  accuracy. In reviewing an  unimportant section of the  statistical analysis, Jean Paul  noticed that 78.3 percent of  the respondents were unemployed.  After re-checking his figures, he reported these  unusual findings to his supervisor Pierre Macdonald. Macdonald routinely passed the  information along in an interdepartmental memo to the  section chief Jean Guy Chan.  Within eight months, the  information reached the  Minister, Marcel Jackson,  who wisely decided to mention  the information at the next  cabinet meeting.  Needless to say, the cabinet  was surprised, even after a  straw vote indicated that  seventy-two percent of the  cabinet ministers were unemployed. Immediately they  leapt into action: a senate  subcommittee was formed; a  first ministers conference was  called; an all-party review  committee was established;  the entrails of a number of  birds were plucked forth;  and three independent  astrologists were commissioned to write reports.  Fourteen months later, a  White Paper was submitted  for debate and within nine  weeks, the comprehensive  plan was put into effect.  The plan was that since most  people in the country did not  have jobs and could not pay  taxes then it might be a good  idea to have them get to work.  The plan called for a multi-  phased strategy which contained several options. Option  one was called "jawboning".  Several ministers took trips to  far-off, exotic places and made  speeches for the Canadian  audiences, since it was well  known that Canadians never  pay attention to speeches  made in their own country.  The speeches varied in style  and official language but the  main theme was that all  Canadian employers should  hire more people.  Within six months, it became obvious that this plan  was a total flop ��� partially  due to the fact that since the  speeches were given during  January and February, all  Canadian employers were  vacationing in far-off, exotic  places. Option two was immediately put into effect.  Two and one half billion dollars were run off on the  Minister of finance's Gestet-  ner machine and scattered  by helicopter over populated  areas, known to have high  unemployment. The theory  was that Canadians who found  the money would use it to  take vacations or go shopping  in the U.S., thus significantly  reducing the number of  unemployed in the country.  The plan worked brilliantly  for ten days, but then someone noticed that the unemployed were returning home  after discovering that the  money they found was only  worth 32* on the dollar in  the U.S.  Option three became  necessary. Five billion dollars  were borrowed from Japan,  using B.C., northern Alberta  and the Yukon as collateral.  The money was distributed ss  grants to people who got  jobs, on the theory that a new  worker might have a better  chance of getting work if he  could offer the employer a  big bribe. Option three appeared to be successful until it was revealed that employers were becoming so  wealthy that they had to shut  down their businesses and  take business trips in order  to get enough tax write-offs  to moderate their growing  tax bills.  Options four, five and six  were tried and they failed.  The problem appeared hopeless, until an executive from  the New Jersey Advertising  Please tarn to page three Hjefro-'ine defoliants Uk*^  ���to ntiiearrwjes, bw+h ��fefermi4tes  tu  l\.S*  tj-tvironrwvtal Pretectal  ij TMr4V\.  e.\jer <ii(\ce \ <jtra.\KiW-.l pint of  V\a^o��\e i\r\a\e rv\\2>eam��e  e*-rv\c>r^, i f<*n dssurt? at  Letters to the Editor  Theatre concept supported  Editor:  RE: Glassford Theatre  It really makes me have my  doubts about the qualifications of the Gibsons Community Planning Committee  when I have to listen to their  opinions of the location of  the theatre.  First of all one can not  classify it as a recreational  facility as such. Besides, especially during slimmer  months, it possibly will be  more of a tourist attraction  rather than a local attraction.  Also, a theatre like it is  never to be found to my knowledge near a community hall  or swimming pool, but mostly  always close to a museum, a  place with a view, or a place  with parklike setting. No  tourist will ever look for it  behind a curling rink.  Therefore fhe site adjacent  to the fire hall would be the  perfect spot and more so,  since it is Village property.  More concerning the site:  I remember well before it  was purchased by <the Village of Gibsons for the sum of  $100,000 plus interest, plus  taxes, etc., Mr. Labonte,  then Mayor, told me personally that he would be talking  very soon to all the business  people in Lower Gibsons concerning this site. 'But unfortunately this was the last time  I heard it mentioned. Since  then I am wondering and  waiting for Council to justify  the $100,000 plus of public  money spent to acquire the  site next to the fire hall.  The same Mr. Labonte,  as Chairman of the Planning  Committee, seems to worry  very much about the taxpayers' money. What about  the $100,000 which until now  have been wasted and possi-  free  bly  taken  away  from  enterprise to purchase.  If Council is really worried about the taxpayers  and the people of the Village  as a whole, which they should  be, they better stop rezoning  land from residential to  commercial, etc., before  everyone of the original  people plus others, who provide services to the general  public, go bankrupt. I honestly  hope that Council will very  seriously consider the eight or  more businesses which over  the last two years folded up in  Gibsons if they do not want to  be one of the worst offenders  of inflation and putting people  under a lot of mental pressure,  because whenever a business  goes under, someone is left  holding the bag which in  time will bring up prices  considerably.

To put the records  straight and for future reference, I wish to advise that  Mr. Gibsons is not buried in  the United Church Cemetery  but in a plot set aside by Mr.  Gibson himself. The plot to  be used specifically by the  Gibson family. The only  person not a member of the  family is one Arthur Hyde  (Jr.) who was the only person  who died during an outbreak  of small pox. It will be eighty-  seven years this June that the  epidemic broke out and Vancouver's Health Officer and  Coroner Dr. McGuigan came  to the Gibson home on Howe  Sound where out of eleven  persons one was dead (Arthur  Hyde, Jr.) and nine were ill  of small pox.

Sweat a Hud Cargo     Parti  Not a year was to elapse  before the ILA membership in  both Vancouver and Prince  Rupert walked off the job  again, this time in sympathy  with the Winnipeg General  Strike. This protest lasted  exactly one month from June  3 to July 3. It was generally  peaceful. In June of the following year, the Prince Rupert  dockers went out over a wage-  dispute and longshoremen in  Vancouver and Victoria signified support by refusing to  load cargoes destined for the  northern port. Jimmy Greer  recalls that Bill Richards, a  business-agent, was jailed as  a result of this work-stoppage.  He later became reeve of  Burnaby. Again, apart from  this, there appears to have  been no significant incidents  or repercussions.  Alec Will came to Vancouver with his family in 1913.  They lived only a mile from  the waterfront and as he says:  "I just naturally gravitated  down there at an early age."  There was sickness in the  family and the boyhood onlooker soon became the work-  aspirant youth hanging about  the sidewalk by the Longshoremen's Hall, looking for  casual work; often leaning  against the then-new telephone-pole where years later  he would find his name still  carved in the worn wood and  remember those difficult  times. The casual men were  not allowed in the hall and  were obliged to wait outside, no matter how cold or  wet the weather. Eventually,  when all the union-men had  been hired, the dispatcher, a  rather pompous and self-  important individual, would  emerge and select from the  waiting job-applicants however many more hands he  needed for whatever bottom*  of-the-barrel labour was left.  They dubbed him Hill-with-  the-sermon-on-the-hill for he  was a man of pious leanings  and the small joke  helped  Pages  from a Life-Log  Peter Trower  (s7\ SUNSHINE  \*J KITCHENS  FINE CABINETS  886-9411 Gibsons  lighten those long, cold and  often futile vigils. Sometimes  it got so goddamn miserable  that Alec and some of his  more-adventuresome colleagues would dare the forbidden portals to sneak a  fleeting taste of warmth.  Their nemesis was an ex-  prison-guard called Monty, a  sort of janitor-commissionaire  whose chief task was to prevent such intrusions. They  played cat-and-mouse with  this stern figure of authority,  ducking back into the cold  street when they heard his  heavy footsteps on the basement stairs. One particularly  bitter day, Alec lingered a  bit too long over the radiator  and was startled by the sound  of a gruff voice. He'd been  fairly nabbed. But to his  amazement, instead of a  tongue-lashing and instant  banishment, Monty, in a display of hitherto-unsuspected  humanity, permitted him to  stay. It seemed like a major  victory.  But even when they landed  work it was always the worst  and the hardest. Not that any  dockwork was easy but it was  a matter of degree and the  regulars got first pick. They  were left with the dregs.  Alec recalls vividly how bitter  those dregs sometimes  tasted: "A number of times I  got a job at the Terminal  Dock which was called the  Terrible Dock in them days  and quite rightly so because it  wasn't like it is today. All the  planking was bad and even  just walking without hand-  trucks was quite a feat. I  remember one job in particular, I got down there. There  was a ship called the Arizona  Maru at the very far-end of the  Terminal Dock. Part of the ongoing cargo was 750 tons of  salted herring in 200 pound  cases. This had to be trucked  by hand the entire length of  the dock to the ship, lt was one  of the worst jobs I ever had in  my life. It was wintertime with  about half-an-inch of slush  on the planks which didn't  help matters. Sleet was  coming down and there was an  endless procession of men  going back and forth with the  handtrucks. All you could see  was men helping each other  reload their dropped cases.  It was particularly tough for  me, being a short person,  trying to balance this great  weight on the truck. I remember many times, having what  seemed like the start of a  stroke. The muscles of my  mouth would start to twitch  from the strain of the work.  It was really a grim situation.  To make matters even grimmer, I had nothing for lunch  but two syrup sandwiches ���  not very tasty. At suppertime,  they told us to go eat and  come back. I didn't have any  money and didn't know anyone well-enough to ask for a  loan so I stayed behind the  shed while the rest of the men  went up to a cafe on Powell  Street. We worked from seven  to midnight and then, believe  it or not, we took another  hour off and worked from  one to six in the morning."  Men were being replaced  every couple of hours but Alec  somehow managed to stick it  out. His fortitude impressed  the foreman who promised to  try and get him on the steady  board.  Sometimes the casual men  were sent by boat to the Dol-  larton sawmill to work the  lumber-ships. They were  usually advised to pack a  double-lunch which meant a  twelve-hour shift or longer.  The regular men got the  cabin. Alec and his spare-  board buddies were obliged  to stand outside, often in  driving rain. As a result, they  would be soaked to-the skin  before they even reached the  mill to begin their gruelling  labours. It was no bed of roses  to be sure but few of them  complained in those days.  They were damn thankful to  be working.  Danger wn an ever present  companion for the longshoreman on many of the ships.  There was no proper system  for checking the equipment  and it was often extremely  unsafe. Harry Walters, a long  time winch  seeing at least two booms  collapse from dry-rot. Lines  and blocks were often worn  beyond any safety-margin ���  the winches, rusty and unpredictable. Walters remembers the Japanese boats as  being markedly bad in these  respects. He and Sam Engler,  another veteran waterfront  worker, once walked off a  ship because of the condition  of the winches, unwilling to  risk the lives of the men in  the hold. They were called  before the Shipping Board as a  result of this action but stated  their case straightforwardly  and were exonerated. Courageous actions such as theirs  would lead eventually to the  establishment of a rigid set of  standards in regard to equipment but for many years, it  was a completely haphazard  proposition. Many dockers  were injured or killed as a  consequence. Walters cites  the instance of a green foreman who was standing in the  bight of a tightened line.  The block broke suddenly and  the cable took him square in  the head, splattering his  brains all over the deck.  He saw another man crushed  flat as a pancake by a rolling  log on a lumber ship. Loading  lumber and logs was particularly dangerous and the  winch-drivers were by no  means exempt from jeopardy.  Walters was once loading  piling on an American schooner when a ninety-foot log  swung around unexpectedly  and knocked him right out of  hs seat. Greedy for maximum tonnage, the captains  would sometimes take on  enormous log-loads that  strained their capacities to  the limit. A number of these  top-heavy ships later sank at  sea with great loss of life.  The sailor's lot was not an  easy one either.  To be continued  Ellingli(iin 's  '.

Honours Night  A good turnout of people  was on hand at the Elphinstone Secondary School Auditorium on Saturday night,  March 17, for the Honours  Concert of the Sunshine Coast  Music, Drama and Dance  Festival.  Award winners only were  featured this year and the  result was an interesting programme of great variety and  interest which sent everyone  home well-pleased with the  evening's entertainment.  The 1979 winners in the  various categories were:  Disco Dance, Valerie Kettle tied with Disco Dance  Group; Junior Tap, Marlene  Sobie; Senior Jazz, Belinda  Sobie; Elementary School  Speech Arts, Stirling & Carrie Wallace tied with Cedar  Grove Elementary School;  Junior Speech Arts, Carrie  Wallace; Arts Council $50.00  prize, Carrie Wallace; Junior  Vocal,    Debbie    Middleton;  Film Society  bv Allan J.Crane  Lamb's Navy Rum.

In fact, Lamb's unique  quality has made it known  round the world for more  , than 100 years.  There were thirty-eight  people at the Kwahtahmoss  Film Society's screening of the  magnificent motion picture,  Becket, and eleven of these  were new members. Less than  half-a-dozen ballots were  completed, all of which rated  the film "Excellent". One  viewer commented: "I enjoyed it more than the first  time," which is an almost  verbatim reflection of my own  reaction to the screening.  Another commented: "Heroic  performers and performances," and another said:  "What can you say about  Becket? It speaks for itself."  The Film Society's next  presentation will be Francois Truffaut's most recent  film, Small Change (L'Argent  de Poche) which he made in  1976 almost twenty years after  his first film. The 400 Blows,  to which it is related themati-  cally. The following summary  is taken from a distributor's  catalogue,  "There is nothing posh and  everything pleasing about  Small Change, a completely  winning portrait of children in  a variety of shapes, forms and  dispositions. It is a sunlit  film, a burble of laughter, a  wistful sign perpetually edging into episodic exploration  of youngsters in school, out of  school, at home, with adults  intruding occasionally, but  serving largely as background. In the catalytic presence of a welfare child, it  will, of course, bring to mind  Truffaut's first film, The 400  Blows, If its message is the  ringing defence of the rights  Pianoforte Duet, Jonathan  Hunter & Christina Wing;  Pianoforte Sight Reading,  Marian VanderGeest; Junior  Piano Champion, Kimberley  Anne Watts; Senior Tap,  Dawn Duckham; Arts Council  (Dance) $50.00 prize, not  announced; Junior Jazz,  Shannon Peterson; Character  Ballet, Shelly Lynn Murray;  Intermediate Piano Champion  Lisa Matthaus tied with Tony  English; Acrobatic Dance,  'Cat Dance'; Instrumental  Music, Laurie Townsend  tied with Riccoh Talento;  Secondary School Speech  Arts, Donard MacKenzie;  Song and Dance, Roddy  Schultz; Arts Council (Music)  $50.00 prize, Mario Reiche;  Senior Piano Champion,  Suzanne Sutherland; National  Dance, Polish ��� Debbie  Middleton, tied with Urkanian  Group; Open Speech Arts,  John Burnside; Senior Vocal,  Graham Heap.  of children delivered by a  teacher, the film is stating  what was inherent in that first  small masterpiece. However,  the seventeen years between  have enabled Truffaut to see  the experiences of the young  in far more optimistic terms,  and with the appreciation of a  child's resiliency. Small  Change is an original, a major  work on minor keys. It is a  film with so many associations  to other Truffaut films that  watching it is like meeting a  previously unknown relative,  someone both familiar and utterly new and surprising."  Small Change will be  screened on Tuesday, March  27 at 9:00 p.m. at the Twilight Theatre.

General Notes: There is presently so much diverse movement in the heavens that it is  difficult to pin-point a major  trend. Here are the highlights.  Venus squares Uranus, indicating strange and unexpected romantic developments.  Mars squares Neptune warning us against deception and  illconceived actions. The Sun  trines Jupiter bringing optimism and good faith to everything attempted. A contradictory week of unusual and  conflicting developments can  be expected.  Babies born this week will  be romantic, idealistic and  rebellious. Many will be attracted to unusual ideas,  people and places.  ARIES (March 21-ApriI 19)  Association with local club,  society or group activity  brings the kind of warm  friendship you need. Contentment is'found in getting involved and helping others.  It's time to share long-range  ideas with partner or someone  special. Those of you working  on private projects have to be  more realistic. Secrets may  leak out.  TAURUS (April 20-May 20)  Status, position or public  standing is subject to unexpected change. Seize opportunity to get ahead. Close  associate may suggest original  way to boost prestige. Work-  scene promotion is for you.  Fussy acquaintance will  question shared expenses  next weekend. Meanwhile,  say 'no' to stranger's financial  scheme.  GEMINI (May 21 June 21)  Day-to-day companions are  feeling rebellious and cranky.  Work scene smacks of anarchy. To keep the peace, withhold opinions. Rare case of  love-at-first-sight gets your  heart thumping. Meanwhile,  loved one is still unsure of  your intentions. Those born  around June 12 must fight  self-deception and face the  truth.  CANCER (June 22-JuIy 22)  Getting involved with  other people's finances brings  shocks and surprises. Demand  guarantees before parting  with hard-earned cash. Remember, you have to speculate to accumulate. Real  estate deal gets green light.  At last, romance and lust  arouse jealousy and intrigue.  Vague propositions from far  away will need investigation.  LEO (July 23-Aug.22)  Marriages and all relationships face unexpected and  strange developments. Daily  companions may display odd  behaviour. Restless loved one  is anxious to taste long-lost  freedom. Let that person go.  Lifelong mate is in the mood  for domestic change. Everyone (except you) is in an unpredictable mood so make no  promises or commitments.  VIRGO (Aug.23-Sept.22)  Prepare for unusual conditions where you perform your  daily chores. Employment  scene is alive with original  ideas and outlandish schemes.  Harmless flirting on the job  brightens up dull routines.  Medical appointments may  have to be changed or cancelled. Health faddists discover yet another cure-all.  September 2 birthdays must  accept present delays philosophically.  WiMMMMMM  LIBRA (Sept.23-0ct.23)  Accent is on spontaneous  amusements, pleasures and  pastimes. Trying something  different should bring life  back to dull social calendar.  Unexpected stimulation may  find you spending carelessly. Fascinating strangers  will be tempting. Love affairs  blossoming now will be erotic  but short-lived. Have nothing  to do with work-scene intrigue  or tittle-tattle.  SCORPIO (Oct.24-Nov.22)  Accent is on peculiar conditions where you live. Household members are feeling  rebellious and need a change  of scene. Advice is to scrap  dreary domestic routines and  rearrange duties. Social  life hints of trickery. Keep an  eye on your money at weekend  event. Those (jorn November  13 are feeling charming,  irresistible.  SAGITTARIUS (Nov.23  ���Dec. 21)  Prepare for bizarre, short-  distance communications.  Local visits and journeys face  diversions. Unsigned note  becomes a puzzle. Late-night  phone call is no joke. Brother,  sister or neighbour reveals  secret. Recent domestic  activity uncovers hidden  snag. Those born around December 13 should stick to  well-tried methods.  CAPRICORN (Dec.22-Jan.19)  Spotlight is on impulsive  spending. Fight urge to  acquire unusual but useless  items. Think now, save later.  Shop with little cash. Say  goodbye to money lent to  smooth talker. It's the right  time to ask superiors for overdue rewards, favours or a  bigger slice of the pie. Make  extra effort to visit one  confined to home or hospital.  AQUARIUS (Jan.20-Feb.lS)  Venus in your sign, well  aspected by Uranus and Pluto,  promises success through  strength of personality.  Once again, popularity hits  new high. Others are attracted by your charm, originality  and reputation. This trend  ends next week so launch  new projects now. Meanwhile, a recent financial  transaction may have to be  followed-up. Weekend social  life is wild for those born  February 9.  PISCES (Feb.19-Mar.20)  Accent is on unusual developments behind the  scenes. Private activity is  subject to probe, investigation. Secret love affairs, forbidden meetings and cover-  ups face sudden exposure.  Have explanations, excuses  and lies well rehearsed. Protect reputation. Quit dishonest, quesionable venture.  Those born March 11 are  being lead astray.  Pender  celebrates  The Pender Harbour  secondary students will be  celebrating the first day of  spring with an afternoon and  evening of fun for all.  On March 21, from 4 p.m.  to 9 p.m., thirty-five booths  will be set up in the gymnasium.  Several of the student  groups are the sponsors and  some of the many prizes have  been made by them. The 25*  admission is good for a chance  at the door prize, which is as  yet being kept a secret.  MMHMMNMf  SPRING PAINTING SHOW  SENJA BOUTI LI ER  KERTTU VIITANEN  JOAN T. WARN  FRI. SAT.

Dialect notwithstanding, to  most of us the above bit of  doggerel   means   less   than  nothing. But if you had been  a resident of Britain, particu  larly of the city of Edinburgh  in the final days of the year of enough was known about their  aa>*aaa   u  ,j  a *. - .   P. ...  mour, "Resurrectionists")  lurking about cemeteries,  following hearses, and masquerading in mourning at  funerals. When the sexton's  work was finished, theirs  would begin. They became  gruesomely adept at their  work, removing just enough  earth to open a small hole in  the coffin-lid, pulling the body  up and out through the hole,  sacking it up, and replacing  the earth carefully to leave no  trace  of desecration.   Still,  1828, it would have meant a  great deal indeed, for on  Christmas Eve of that year  began the trial of one of the  19th century's most infamous  murderers: William Burke.  According to the letter of the  law, Burke received a fair  trial. He could hardly have  failed to do so, since both the  prosecution and defense of his  case attracted the finest legal  minds in Scotland. But in the  streets of Edinburgh the temper of the populace, inflamed  by rumour and broadsheet  ballads, was such that if by  some miracle Burke had been  acquitted he would certainly  have been lynched, if not torn  to pieces, by the mob. That  the public outrage provoked  by his crimes cut across all  distinctions of class and society was due to the nature of  the crime itself; Burke and his  confederate, William Hare  (who escaped prosecution by  turning King's evidence),  aided by their wives, had murdered sixteen people in order  to make money by selling their  bodies to lecturing anatomists  for public dissection.  In order to understand these  events, it's necessary to remember that medicine was  only then beginning to evolve  into an exact science. Doctors and administrators alike  had realized that if surgery  was to become more than hit-  or-miss butchery, surgeons  requited a thorough knowledge of anatomy that could  only, be gained by observing  and participating in the dissection of corpses. The Edinburgh anatomy schools, in the  vanguard of this .movement,  were some of the finest in the  world. Unfortunately no provision was made to insure the  anatomists an adequate supply of subjects. They were  entitled legally only to the  bodies of executed criminals,  and though capital punishment was far more common  then, this source was both  insufficient and erratic. Without a reliable supply of subjects a school could lose its  students to rival schools, so  the anatomists were forced  to pay extortionate prices for  bodies on the black market.  They also had to swallow  whatever scruples they  might possess and ask no  questions for fear that the  bodysnatchers would take  their trade elsewhere. Most of  the bodies that appeared on  the dissecting table had been  robbed from fresh graves.  One can imagine the body-  snatchers (who called themselves, with quaint black -in  activities for most of the  graveyards of Edinburgh to  be patrolled by armed guards  at night.  The "resurrection trade"  was typical of the underside of  life in prosperous, respectable  Edinburgh. In the old town  there were evil dens and sinks  of depravity the equal of any  19th century. Into this milieu  came William Burke and William Hare, two itinerate  Irish labourers, both of whom,  though they did not know each  other, worked for a time on  the Union Canal. When the  work was finished they drifted, unemployed, into Edinburgh. There they pursued  irregular occupations; Burke  was a cobbler of sorts and  Hare a part-time stevedore  who lived mainly off his wife,  "Lucky" Logue, who ran a  lodging house for tramps.  That house, located in a miserable dead-end alley called  Tanner's Close, was the last  credited with having invented  many of the jokes and riddles  traditional in British music-  hall comedy, but always they  managed to avoid suspicion.  ��� No one's luck holds forever  and when one of their murders was accidentally discovered by neighbours who  wouldn't be bribed, the jig  was up. The Lord Advocate  knew that if he was ever to get  at the whole truth of the story,  he would have to get one of  the two to confess and give  evidence against the other and  the only way to do that was to  promise one of the rogues  immunity from prosecution.  Having decided that Burke  was the blacker of the two, he  persuaded Hare to do just  that and poor Burke was convicted, hung publicly, and his  body, ironically, given for  anatomical dissection. But  public outrage was not satisfied by the sacrifice of William  Burke. The wives of the two  men, though acquitted  (Lucky Logue was never even  tried), were hounded everywhere by vicious mobs and  continually forced to seek  protective custody of the  police. Eventually they both  escaped by emigration into  obscurity.  William Hare, the accomplice and star witness, was not  so lucky, or at least so the  story goes. Released, he was  relentlessly hunted by the  mob from city to city through  Scotland and into England.  stop on earth for many of It is said that they caught up  those who were to fall into with him at Carlisle and threw  the clutches of Burke and him into a lime-pit.

By  chance they had hit upon a  system which left almost no  trace of foul play on the corpse  and though the anatomists  occasionally remarked on the  "freshness" of the subjects,  they were careful not to inquire too closely. Several  times they had close scrapes,  as when one of the students  at a dissection recognized the  subject as a beautiful, young  prostitute he had caroused  with only days before, or when  they made the near-fatal  mistake of murdering "Daft  Jamie", a local street character,  widely known, who is  the science that was his only  passion.

The use of spices to enhance the flavour of food  goes back to the days before Christ when victorious conquerors exacted pepper as a ransom. It  was a splce caravan which delivered Joseph from  his envious brothers.  SPICE ISLANDS is the registered trade  mark of a line of high-quality spices which  our store features, and will soon handle  exclusively. Since it costs so little per meal to  use a splce that can make so much difference  in the flavour of expensive meals, It's not  worth the risk to use anything else.

If It  Is gone, or low, so is the flavour.  Black pepper is, of course, the  world'8 master splce. So versatile, It  can play a welcome role in almost any  dish.

"It just doesn't make sense,"  I concluded. An older lady  looked up at me and remarked with surprise, "You  expect things to make sense I"  I felt, like Rip Van Winkle,  as if I'd been transported  unawares into another age.  In these days it can happen  overnight ��� it doesn't need a  hundred years.  As Alice, Lewis Carroll's  acrobatic performer on the  fine line between sense and  nonsense, might have remarked, "It all depends on  what you mean by sense,"  or, "One man's sense is  another man's nonsense.''  A few months ago Madame  Sauve, Minister of Communications, set up a committee  of "wise" Canadians called  the "Consultative Committee  on the Implications of Telecommunications for Canadian  Sovereignty" under the  chairmanship of the Honourable J.V.Clyne. The committee was asked to make recommendations to the Government "on a strategy to restructure the Canadian  telecommunications system  to contribute more effectively  to the safeguarding of Canadian sovereignty".  ff^B.A. BLACKTOP*^  "QUALITY SERVICE SINCE 1956"  ASPHALT PAVING OF:  ROADS ��� INDUSTRIAL SITES ��� PARKING AREAS  TENNIS COURTS ��� DRIVEWAYS  GRAVEL SALES  "FOR FREE ESTIMATE CALL"  885-5151  East Porpoise Bay, Sechelt  Members:  iWi    Amalgamated Construction  Association  B.C.

I'm not sure if the committee's recommendations have  been made public yet, but  Madame Sauve has already  taken action by giving the  Cable companies permission  to build earth receiving stations and direct access to  satellite transmissions.  So far the Government  intends this as an in-Canada  transaction only, not one  which will extend American  programming, but the Japanese are already testing a  backyard model for the homeowner which may be marketed for as little as $200.

Not of  course, on those dozen or  so channels on your present  TV ��� but fibre optics, a system developed by Bell Canada  and which uses hair-thin  strands of glass fibres to carry  information in laser light  waves, is already being tested in homes in Yorkville, a  part of Toronto. One pair of  these fibres can carry more  than 4,000 telephone conversations or several TV programmes simultaneously, or  hundreds of millions of computer "bits" a second ��� making it possible to turn your  home set into a mini-computer. Those electronic  "pong" games you can now  play on your TV were just the  forerunner. All sorts of information, technical data,  your newspapers, etc., will  be available at the punch of a  button, home shopping, mail,  payment of bills, more sophisticated games such as  chess with a computer, and of game I  course all sorts of movies  and other entertainment. We  know how. The operative  question is, do we want to?  Obviously some of us want  to and it seems to me the  sovereignty in the committee's mandate did not  mean the national real estate  type sovereignty which we  usually understand the  word to mean, the "from sea  to shining sea" type; but the  technological sovereignty,  the sort which would make  Canada a leader in the world  in telecommunications technology.  Obviously this is a matter  of importance and it does  relate to the old fashioned  sort of sovereignty ��� in as  much as it doubtless becomes  obsolete in the Global Village. It's a very complex  issue with far reaching social impacts upon all of us.  Seemingly the Government  is responding to the pressures  of the industry and avoiding a  major democratic debate, a  nationwide discussion as to  whether we really need this  technology at this time or not,  whether perhaps there are  other matters of higher priority in the public interest,  whether the dangers to society have been fully assessed  and understood, and what sort  of safeguards will be needed  to protect the rights to privacy among other rights we  deem important.  Because we know how to  do something, does that automatically make it right, or  even in the best interests of  the community at large?  Is it really true that what's  best for Bell is best for Canada?  The Government talks  about leadership but it would  seem technology runs the  country ��� we can do it, we  can create the markets, it  will make money, therefore  it's good, QED.

CARL HORNER, FIRE CHIEF I SPORTS 1  Strikes  and spares  Coast News, March 20.1979  m1  Tempers flared briefly at the start of Sunday's game  between Elphinstone Wanderers and Belfast United  but the teams settled down quickly to a well-played  tie.  By Bud Mulcaster  We held the Zone Round for  the National Classified Tournament last Sunday amongst  teams from Garibaldi Lanes,  Squamish and Gibsons.  There were nine ladies'  teams involved and our number two team came up winners. They are: Esther Carey,  Barbara Christie, Jane  Coates, Janet Flumerfelt and  Nora Solinsky. They bowled  very well and had a scratch  total of 3,224. Jane Coates  rolled a 318 single and a 717  triple and two Squamish bowlers rolled 300 games. Mary  Carey had a 308 single and  796 for three, Joyce Fluty a  321 single and 726 for three,  and Lorraine Weger a 754  triple.  There were four teams involved for the men and the  Squamish H\ team of Keith  Hoecherl, Glen Price, Ian  Erickson, Ed Antosh and  George Binning were the  winners, rolling a scratch total  Wanderers still can't  beat the Shamrocks  The Elphinstone Wanderers  travelled to Vancouver March  11 for a match against Shamrock Labatts. This was the  third game against Labatts in  two seasons with the Gibsons  Club still unable to beat the  Labatts Club. They managed a  tie at two goals each.  The first half ended in a  0���0 score with the Gibsons  Team holding a wide territorial advantage. Early in the  second half the Labatts Club  moved a goal ahead on a line  goal by the Labatts centre  forward and which just escaped the fingertips of goalie  Frank Havies. An excellent  shot by Gibsons inside left  Robbie Williams, set up by  mid-fielder Lex Tierney, tied  the score at 1���1 and the Gibsons Team pressed for the go-  ahead goal. A goal scored by  Gibsons' Joey Sawyer was disallowed by the referee even  though the linesman indicated  a goal was scored. Labatts  then took advantage of a lapse  in the Gibsons defence and  quickly scored a second goal  with ten minutes remaining to  go ahead 2���1. Even though  time was against them, the  Gibsons Club demonstrated  their poised and ball-controlled game, and were rewarded by a beautiful goal  three minutes from time set  up by right winger Ken Miles  and first-timed into the net by  the constantly improving  Joey Sawyer; by far the prettiest goal of the game.  New players to be welcomed  to the Club this year are  Lex Tierney, a twenty-two  year old Scotsman from Edinburgh, and Joey Sawyer, a  twenty-one year old Englishman from Newton-le-Willows.  Joey Sawyer worked out with  the Vancouver Whitecaps  last year and was one of the  last-minute cuts. Let's not  forget big Frank Havies, a  local lad well-known in sporting circles. These new additions have made the Wanderers a balanced soccer club  and a strong contender in  their division.  Two regular players were  missed during the Labatts  contest with goalie-coach  Jan de Reus out of action due  to illness, and Gary Davies  Missed penalty  costs a point  The much awaited soccer  game between Elphinstone  Wanderers and Belfast  United was played under good  conditions at the high school  field. Many fans turned out for  the contest which ended in a  0���0 draw.  The first half belonged to  Elphinstone Wanderers with  good opportunities available  to Lex Tierney, Ken Miles,  Dan Baker and Duncan  Campbell, but the Wanderers  were held off the score sheet.  The second half was an even  affair with goalie Gary Davies  making two excellent saves  from Belfast forwards. Also  Stevie Miles and Corky  Bland saved two balls on the  goal line.  The Wanderers had an  excellent chance to win thc  game in the second half as a  ball headed into the net by  Joey Sawyer was stopped by  the hands of a Belfast de-  fencer. The resulting penalty  shot was directed straight at  the keeper by Joey Sawyer;  however a second opportunity  was given by the referee as  the goalie moved on the first  shot. The second shot was also  missed by Joey Sawyer and  grazed the goalpost.  Outstanding players of the  game were Corky Bland, Art  Dew, and Robbie Williams,  who showed outstanding  hustle during the game.  The Elphinstone Wanderers are offering a $100 reward  leading to the conviction of  vandals who completely  ruined the Langdale pitch  with a vehicle.

The score  was a somewhat one-sided  32-4 in favour of the local  team.  Despite the high score,  however, the game was tough.  On the opening kick-off  Bob Johnson scored on an  excellent individual effort.  Within two minutes Bob  scored again and the convert  was made good by Jay Pom-  fret. Garry Guelph fought for  a loose ball in the end zone to  make the score 14-0. With the  convert and penalty kick soon  after by Jay, the G.R.C. was  ahead by 20-0 at the half.  The second half was equally exciting with Pat Gaines  scoring twice, the first on an  unassisted run from near the  45-yard line. Lex Tierney  scored the final try with a  short run from about the  5-yard line. The lone Capilano score came midway  through the second half.  The Gibsons Rugby Club is  in the process of rebuilding  this year. Any former members, supporters, and/or  players are urged to attend  a'meeting on Tuesday at the  old clubhouse on Reed Road  The final hockey game in  the Pup division was played  on Saturday morning at the  Arena in Sechelt', between the  Legion 140 team and the Sechelt Canucks.  The Legion team carried  the play to the Canucks for  most of the game. Robby  Stockwell opened the scoring, his team mate Dean Both-  well scored the second Legion  goal, making the score 2-0  at the end of the first.  In the second period, the  Canucks came back with two  answering goals by P.Smith  Soccer  standings  Pliytd Won Lott TMM.  and D.Myers, to tie the game.  Both teams played good,  aggressive hockey in the final  period, and the game could  have gone either way. It was a  fit of over-exuberance on the  part of the Canucks in the  last five minutes which made  them a man short and enabled  the Legion team to score the  winning goal.

Camper dumping needed  ing about $310,000 in the current fiscal year, ending on  March 31, 1979, and has  budgeted for an expenditure  of about $625,000 pending  approval in the provincial  estimates for 1979/1980,  which will be before the Legislature in the forthcoming  session.

At the Hearing all persons who deem their interest In property affected by the proposed By-laws  shall be afforded an opportunity to be heard on matters contained In the By-laws.  The intent of the By-laws is to amend the present zoning to the following described properties as  noted below:  1. By-law No. 329 1979.

I refer of course to the camper  dumping station that the area  has been promised dating  back to 1974, when this suggestion was first put forward  by the Gibsons Wildlife Club.  The idea was well received  by the Village and various  suggestions were made and  sites investigated to find the  most suitable location. Gas  stations were high on the list  but they all turned it down for  various reasons. After quite a  lot of research into the best  location for such a facility,  the then Mayor of Gibsons,  Larry Labonte, told us that  when the Curling Rink building was built, the sewer system would have to be extended to look after that, and at  the same time provisions  would be made for a connection to be made to accommodate a dumping station and  the necessary waterline installed.  This was done, a cement  ae  ar  3E  Roberts Creek  Community  Association  Annual Meeting  i and  n Election of Off leers  Wed., March 21  8p.m.  Community Hall  ���ac     ac     ac =  NOTICE  INVITING  APPLICATIONS  FOR TIMBER SALE  LICENCE A11224  Pursuant to section 16(1)  of the Forest Act, there  will be offered for sale at  public auction by the  Forest Ranger at Sechelt, B.C. at 10:30 a.m.  on March 26, 1979, a  Timber Sale Licence to  authorize the harvesting  of 100 cubic metres of  timber located Homesite  Creek, New Westminster Land District.

If there should be a  surplus, it goes back to the  government, but any deficits  have to be financed by the  Society out of their own resources.  The three main programmes operated by the Society are: Community Service  Centre and Minibus, with a  budget of $61,000 for the current fiscal year; Homemakers  J Figure skating  the Sunshine Coast Figure  Skating Club's Fourth Annual  Carnival was very successful and the Committee wishes  to thank all those who helped.  A special thanks to Uncle  Mick's of Sechelt and Driftwood Crafts of Gibsons for  handling tickets; to Bud Koch  and the Parthenon for their  door prize donations; to the  problem with the campers  having to turn round as they  could just drive onto the pad,  connect up their hose, and  when they had finished, drive  out at the other end and go  around the building.  So far, so good, it would  seem, but now the problems in the minds of Council  members at least, began to  arise. Just what these problems were nobody seems prepared to say but the end  result is that "a new location  is being considered" and  "we will let you know when  this has been decided on".  One would have thought  that after paying all that  taxpayer money to install  facili.y such as this, the Council would have put it into  operation and if the site is not  suitable for some unknown  reason or other, they could  have found another site in  five years. The Gibsons Wildlife Club wrote a letter to the  Council last year asking for  some action and were told  that the matter was under  consideration, etc., etc.  It is not too long to Easter  now and the first long weekend of the year, Campers will  be coming up in droves and  there is no doubt that some  of these guys will just drive  up the nearest logging road  (as we know has been done in  the past) and discharge their  waste at the side of the road,  into a creek or lake or just into  a convenient gravel pit.

At this annual meeting, a  resolution to change the name  of the Sunshine Coast Community Services Society was  passed.

Sechelt Garden Club  ByJacUVfacteod  On Saturday, March 10,  seven members of the Sechelt  Garden Cub went to Delta  to attend the day-long Annual  Conference of the B.C.Council of Garden Clubs. Fifty-  three affiliated clubs were  represented. The morning was  devoted to club and committee  reports, and to the election of  officers.  The Sechelt delegation was  especially pleased to meet  several young people who are  engaged in horticultural or  related studies at centres of  higher learning in the province. The B.C. Council assists them through a scholarship fund to which our club  donates.  Proceeds from items sold at  a display put on by the Sechelt  Club at the conference will go  to this scholarship fund. Club  members Ena Harrold, Carmen Grassie and Joyce Williams had spent much time  creating the artistic items,  using dried flowers and leaves  while Allan Pollock contributed two bird houses he had  made.

The solution to  rid ourselves of them was not  shoved aside by disputes between over-anxious sprayers  and some environmentalists,  but by failure to supply economic measures such as suspending planting for a year in  the infected area, with subsidies paid out for the loss of  crops.

There are adult  students  enrolled  in   Social  Swimming  lessons  The Gibsons Swimming  Pool will be starting their third  session of swimming lessons  for 1979 on Monday, April 2.  Registration for all classes  will commence on Monday,  March 19, and go to Saturday,  March 24, during pool hours;  and from March 26 to Friday,  March 30 from 9 a.m. until  Studies and Communication  courses.  One such student is Maryanne West. She's in Communication. The other students in the class say "she's  just another student". Maryanne believes there's no  generation gap. She works  with the class, has a good  attendance ��� so far. Homework now takes the place of  some housework, according to  Maryanne's daughter.  Mrs. Kitson, another adult  student, admitted to getting  her son to help her with her  homework. She believes it is  harder now to learn. You have  to commit yourself to it to  tally. You have to make the  effort every day to get to  classes, and your homework done, or you'll never be  able to go back to school.  The teachers think adults  are great to have in class.  Older students add an adult  point of view for the class.  They can contribute more because of their experience.  Nevertheless, they must be  themselves, not teens.  Adult students admitted to  being scared the first day,  but found themselves accepted very quickly. There are  many courses available in the  school. It's the adult tax  dollars that pay for the  school, so why not take advantage of your opportunity  for further education?  Packer  sinks  March 13 was not a lucky  day for three local men ���  Eric Antilla, Arthur Jensen,  and David deKerr. The 54-  foot packer, the Island Girl,  sank on them just outside  Nootka Sound on the West  Coast of Vancouver Island.  The Island Girl, skippered  by Antilla, was taking on a  load of herring at 6:30 a.m. on  the 13th, when the boat  tipped and the hatches flooded. The winds were light and  the men were able to jump  into their skiff and get safely  aboard another boat.  About twenty minutes after  the boat was taken in tow, she  sank.
