Miriam  Doucctte from SPEC said that  the Environmental Protection Agency in the United  States had said that for carcinogenic, or cancer causing  agents, there was a zero tolerance level. The agency  had taken this position in  February 1976. The World  Health Organization had taken  the same position in 1972.  She stressed that the cancer  causing elements in chemical  compounds had nothing to do  with the level of toxicity  in the compound.  She told the forum that this  was also true of birth-deformity propensities in the compounds. She noted that in  the case of thalidomide it  was found that rats, with  which the chemical had been  tested, had a tolerance level  sixty times greater than human beings to the chemical.  health. "It is a provincial  responsibility," said Vance,  "lo ensure thai herbicides are  used in a knowledgeable and  proper fashion." but that lhc  provincial government must  fall back on federal regulations. He listed the responsibilities of the provincial  government as the certification of vendors, lhc licensing of retail vendors, and the  issuing of permits for large  scale use of herbicides in the  public domain. "We try to  ensure that there is no unreasonable adverse effect,"  said Vance. Hc stressed that  new legislation brought in  had instituted an Appeal Process in the case of herbicide  use.  In response to a question  from the floor Cedar said  that 2.4-D was the most thoroughly researched herbicide  there is.   Hc said that there  was a 1971 report ihat 2.4-D  did cause cancer in female  rals. "If the U.S.government decides that the material  in the study is valid." said  Cedar, then it must publish  the facts. If thc herbicide  is shown to be harmful we  will study It."  Ms Doucctte of SPEC at  this point demanded. "Why  do we allow thc herbicides  to be used until they are  proven harmful. Why .do we  have to wait for epidemics  before action is taken?"  In answer to another question Vance gave us as an  example of the work of his  Pesticide Control Branch the  refusal of a permit to B.C.  Hydro to spray from a helicopter in thc Sechelt area.  "Our reasons weren't really  scientific." admitted Vance,  "but we asked Hydro why,  if their intention was to en-  Ex-provincial Cabinet Minister Norm Levi  is shown being interviewed by Elphinstone  Sue Rhodes resigns  from Sea Cavalcade  The volunteer co-ordinator  of thc last two Gibsons Sea  Cavalcades, Sue Rhodes,  has regretfully informed the  Gibsons Council that she will  not be able to perform the  same function this year. Ms  Rhodes says that lack of consultation in key decisions,  made by thc Village Council  but not involving the volunteer committee which was  expected to implement them  is what caused her 'remorsefully' to withdraw from thc  organization of this year's  Cavalcade.  The full lexl of Ms Rhodes'  letter is contained below:  Sir:  Please be advised that I am,  unfortunately, unable to carry on  my efforts on behalf of Sea  Cavalcade. It is with much remorse that I have arrived at this  decision. There are two concepts of Sea Cavalcade: I. a  weekend of festivities for the  most part directed to the community; 2. a tourist-oriented  event.   My main concern is for  the former.  When Sea Cavalcade, it would  appear, was about to be forgotten by community leaders,  it was salvaged by a handful of  concerned citizens. Their priorities were first and foremost  to supply entertainment and involvement lor the people of the  community. This particular approach for the most part seemed  well received.  The second year wc undertook this fun adventure, and  once again were convinced wc  were on the right track.  Thc arrangements and methods wc used to organize Sea  Cavalcade would probably have  given any true organizer ulcers, but no mailer how unorthodox the procedures, people in  the community responded,  not only by attending lhc festivities but also by joining in and  helping in any way they could.  Now that Sea Cavalcade appears to be well established, we  find, unlike previous years, civic  authorities making basic decisions, which will effect Caval  cade planning, without involving  thc community volunteers whom  Ihcy have asked to be responsible for Sea Cavalcade.  As volunteers wc have been  given the responsibility for the  success of Sea Cavalcade, but  we have found decisions affect-  int its success being made elsewhere.  Thc success of the past two  Sea Cavalcades has been largely  due lo the excellent working relationship and continual consultation amongst those of us who  were involved.  If civic authorities wish to  make lhc decisions regarding Ihe  content and organization of  Cavalcade then there is no need  lor a volunteer committee.  I write this letter reluctantly  and would personally like to  thank the many individuals  and community groups who  have already made arrangements  to participate in this year's  Sea Cavalcade.  I hope it will be a successful  community event.  Sue Rhodes,  S.C. Concerned Citizen  student Kim Almond while in town to attend  Sunday's Community Forum.  Police news  SECHELT TO EARLS COVE  Thc Sechelt R.C.M.P. report  that over thc Timber Days weekend there was very little criminal  activity. They have, however,  received a fair number of calls  about motorists passing on solid  lines and passing school buses,  and several violators have been  apprehended.  MAY 19: Charges are pending  in a fight between two Sechelt  men.  MAY 20: There was a break-in  at a cabin in Pender Harbour,  nothing appeared lo have been  taken. Nothing was missing in  another break-in at a home in  Davis Bay. however in Pender  Harbour a quantity of liquor  was taken from a log cabin.  MAY 21: An attempted break-in  at a trailer on Redrooffs Road was  unsuccessful. The windows were  partly pried open.  MAY 22: Two kayaks were  stolen from a property "ii Redrooffs Road. The theft is under  investigation.  MAY23i At thc Irailer park  in Madeira Park, a moving van  was broken into. Approximately  11,000 in tools were taken. A  tape deck and tapes were taken  from a car parked by Ruby Lake.  Value is estimated at $200.  Council discusses Arena deficit  At a special meeting held  in the Sechelt Council Chambers  on Wednesday. May 24th,  Council discussed the recent  operating deficit incurred by the  Ice Arena with its Board of  Directors.  In the first year of operation,  the Arena showed a comfortable  profit, which more than comp  ensated for the losses of thc next  year. In its third year, however,  the books, as of this March,  show a loss of $26,000.  This loss was explained by  a series of circumstances: there  had been several cancellations in  the hockey season; the concession sales had dropped; there  had been a power outage; and  a drop in advertising revenue.  Mr. Loewcn. thc president of  the Arena Association asked  Council if there were sources  available lo give the organization  some borrowing puwer.  Alderman Thompson was  asked to approach the Regional  Board and discuss financing  with them on the premise that  the Arena is used by people  from all over the Regional Area.  Another possible source  brought up was thc inclusion  of the Arena into the recreation  referendum. A comparison  was drawn between this and the  joint use of schools facilities.  School use of the facilities was  also discussed.  MAY 25: Entry was gained to a  home in Sechelt through an unlocked back door. Nothing was  reported missing.  MAY 26: A seven piece cook-  ware set and a six piece cutlery  set were stolen from a salesman's car which was parked in  front of the Manpower Office in  Secheit.  GIBSONS AREA  The Gibsons R.C.M.P. held a  May 25. Thc main topics of the  seminar were shoplifting and  fraud. It was well attended by  fifty people. It was well-timed in  light of the fact that a fair number  of bogus cheques have been circulating through the business  community.  MAY I9t The navigation beacon  at thc entrance to Gibsons harbour was vandalized. The battery which operates the Hashing  light was smashed. A house  adjacent to the Hopkins Landing  Store was broken into. A Sony  coloured television, a ship's  brass hell, scuba equipment and  a chainsaw were taken. Value of  the items is $1,000.  MAY 20: A 30-foot metal ramp  was stolen from West Bay on  Gambier Island. It is made of one  inch metal tubing and is painted  with red primer paint. Value is  set at $1,000.  MAY 23: While walking her dog  on Chaster Road a woman noticed a bear behind her. She sustained minor cuts when she  escaped through a ditch.  MAY 24: There was a single  car accident on Highway 101  at Seaview Road. Thc driver was  taken to Saint Mary's Hospital  and treated for injuries. The  Conservation Officer was called  in to shoot a bear at the intersection of Reed Road and North  Road.  courage salal and other low  growing bushes under the  power line thev were seeking  to spray herbicide over everything."  In answer to a question  directed to thc panel about  thc use of herbicidal chemicals  during the Vietnam War, Ms  Doucctte revealed that thc  chemicals used there were the  same as those used in North  America. "They were pulled  off thc domestic market."  she said. She pointed out that  a federal agency in the United  States has now admitted that  damage was done to human  beings by the herbicidal  spraying in Vietnam. Dou-  cette went on to point out that  of the two million chemical  compounds in use only 6.000  had been thoroughly tested  and of those 6.000. 25% had  been shown to be harmful.  "They told us that thalidomide was less toxic than table  salt." said Doucctte. "but  it wasn't its toxicity that did  the damage, it was its interaction with estrogen." She  reminded the forum that most  of the chemical testing was  done in universities and  that. "Some scientiests get  tremendous amounts of money to do tests on chemicals  from thc chemical companies  that make thc chemicals.  They are not likely to bite  thc hand that feeds them."  Another chilling statistic  from the lady from SPEC  was that though only 9,000  pounds of 2.4-D was used  in B.C. almost 9 million  pounds were used in the  spraying of cereal grains in  the Prairie provinces.  In response to a question  from thc floor, Bayne Vance  of Pesticide Control said,  "We are not saying they are  harmless." Norm Levi then  said from the audience, "Nothing is conclusive so we are  going along with it." Hc  pointed out that Senator Edward Kennedy in a senate  committee in the United  States in 1976 had said that  the Environmental Protection Agency had failed.  "What I want to know,"  said Levi, "is. who's evaluating the evaluators." At this  point Doucette reiterated  that it was surely in the public interest for the government to err on the side of  public safety. "I remind  you," she said, "that according to the Environmental  Protection Agency in the United States and thc World  Health Organization the only  safe exposure to a carcinogen  is absolute zero."

Freighter hits ?  off Aleutians  A mystery of the sea came lo the attention of the Coast News  last week. A freighter belonging to the Star Shipping Company  of Canada Ltd.. the Star Buford. was proceeding from Port Alice  up through the Aleutians to Hakaido on thc North Island ol  Japan. The ship was about one mile before Unimak Pass in  fairly calm weather when il struck something forcibly in what  was supposed to be about 8.000 feet of water at 8:00 a.m.  "It was definitely nol metallic and it wasn't a whale." said  Captain Bobby Middlcton of the Star Buford. "It was loud  enough to wake me up."  Upon arrival in Japan. Captain Middlcton had an inspection  carried out of the hull of his vehicle. No damage was located.  After the return journey Captain Middlcton had a diver from  Vancouver again inspect lhc hull but again no visible damngc  was discovered. The diver did repori. however, ihat just a week  before hc had inspected the hull of a South Korean ship which  reported a very similar incident in the same area just a week  previously. Again lhc bump occurred in a deep sea passage just  east of Kodiak Island and again everyone aboard the Korean  vessel was awakened by lhc impact.  Steps are being taken to cheek Ihe position on the loe.s .il  thc two ships and if close identity is established ill location an  occanographic leant will lie asked to inspect the area.

In the matter of the Lower Village suddenly it is feasible to have a  pub sealing up to sixty people with  apparently no strain on the parking  facilities, Of course, we are asked to  believe that, since these are Marine  Pubs, everyone who uses them will  arrive by boat. What makes it doubly  difficult lo understand is the fact that the  owner of The Tides fish and chip shop is  threatened with the loss of his business  license if he does not forbid his customers  to set at the tables at the back of his  premises to enjoy their purchases. Bear  in mind that one of thc projected pub  ��� sites is almost directly beside The Tides.  Don't people who arrive on boats eat  fish and chips? Won't residents of Ihe  Bay Area walk over ofa summer evening  without ears? Won't someone occasionally drive up to the pub? It's all very  peculiar.  And again in the matter of the location  of the pub which last year was unthinkable but this year is certain, it would  seem from this vantage point and for  two reasons that the original seekers  after a license should be the recipients  And again in the matter of the location  of the pub which last year was unthinkable but this year is certain, it would  seem from this vantage point and for  two reasons that the original seekers after  a license should be the recipients of that  license. Here in the middle of the village is this large and. we must face it,  decaying structure around which much of  Ihe early life of the village revolved. The  furnace doesn't work and the roof leaks  and in this climate its days are definitely  numbered unless restoration work is  done and done soon. Not only did much  of (hc life of the village revolve around  old Doctor Inglis' house, but in that it  housed J.S.Woodsorth in the days  when he with local men conceived  Ihe C.C.F. party, it is an authentic  Canadian historic structure.  There was a programme on television  a week or so ago in which Canadians  were urged  to preserve their heritage  , by making their historic buildings part  of the commercial life around them rather  than letting them fall lo Ihe wrecker's  hammer, The programme was financed  in part by our own provincial government. Surely this grand old house  deserved to be so preserved. No one will  ever spend the money thai it needs to  make it a residence; il is too close to  growl of trucks ascending the hill and  people with enough money to spare do  not spend it in such locations. It must be  a commercial endeavour; it must pay for  itself. It can do so without loss of dignity.  For those who objected to the building  becoming a pub when the project was  first bruited, wc would say. "Please  think again." The house is assuredly  doomed unless some commercial use be  found for it. To those who objected to  another liquor outlet in the village, we  would point out that you are going to  have one in any ease.  Let us remember that neighbourhood  pubs were not intended to be the beer  swilling barns so common in North America. They were modelled on the pubs in  Britain where the pubs so often tend to  be multi-roomed and charming. It is  possible, though rare on this continent,  to find a liquor outlet which has a comfortable and a quiet charm and the house  that was Ihe doctor's is admirably suited  for such a use. In addition, it has off-the-  streel parking and is close enough to  the head of the wharf to service admirably the wharf area.  If further argument is necessary, it  is fair to point out that the proprietors  of the doctor's house have shown locally  in their refurbishing of the Dogwood  Cafe that they are men of taste and ability. In their present endeavour in Wells,  B.C. where they have taken an extremely  run-down hotel and brought it back from  thc verge of collapse, they have shown  the Liquor Control Board their capabilities as administrators.  If. as seems inevitable, there is to be a  pub in Lower Gibsons, justice would  seem to demand that their proposal be  given close consideration. In their  contributions to the life of the community  they deserve it. as does the fine and  failing old house they seek to restore and  utilize.  Well worthwhile  Not enough can be said in praise of  the efforts of Mrs. Marta McKown and  her Elphinstone Secondary Students for  their initiative in organizing the second  Community Forum. Thanks to them, the  citizens who turned up on a lovely  afternoon for the beach lo learn about  pesticides heard presentations and debate from the representatives of SPEC.  Environment Canada, and the Provincial  Pesticide Control Branch. Il was an  instructive afternoon lor everyone there.  Further, lo those who tend to throw up  their hands in surrender before the en  croachments of thc giant corporations,  etc.. and say that resistance is hopeless, wc would point out the assurance  given by Bayne Vance, Manager of the  Pesticide Control Branch at the end of  thc meeting. "When permits are sought  in future for the spraying of the Sunshine  Coast, be assured that the concerns of  the residents will be closely considered."  It is possible that a tide is turning and  thc students of Elphinstone and their  capable and dynamic teacher are showing  the rest of us the way.  from the files of Coast .News  temjmbeF^^  5 YEARS AGO  Thirteen year-old Tom Kettle of  North Fletcher Road found a starfish measuring 20 inches Irom tip to  tip oft Gibsons Wharf.

Basket maker TLYE-AH-HUHM'AT  sits for photographer Helen McCall beside a few of her most  recent creations. North Pacific coast baskets were constructed  mainly of thin strips of the cedar root sapling, coiled around  slivers from the root's heartwood or, as in the examples seen  here, around narrow slats split from cedar wood. Light features of the embrecated designs were gained from a reed  for which the artist used to travel by canoe to the Fraser River.  Brownish-red elements were worked into the design by strips  of natural cherry bark, and black by strips of this bark soaked  over a period of several months in the presence of Iron. The  basket maker seldom if ever repeated any of her geometric  patterns, nor dare she copy the motif of another artist. Since  one coil was linked to the one below it by a continuous root  strip, the basket was in fact sewn rather than woven by the  maker. Throughout her life TLYE-AH-HUHM'AT was highly  renowned at her craft. Photo courtesy R.Hackett and Elphinstone Pioneer Museum. L.R.Peterson  Musings  John Burnside  We have printed in this issue an extremely sad letter  from Sue Rhodes to the Village Council. In it, Sue, the  true Spirit of Sea Cavalcade  the last couple of years 'remorsefully' withdraws from  the organization of the event  this year. It is a great shame  that Sue has been made to  feel that she must withdraw  and whoever fills her shoes  may find that they have been  a very large pair indeed. She  coaxed and bullied and  phoned and worked so hard in  the past couple of years. You  will remember that there  very nearly wasn't a Sea  Cavalcade a couple of years  ago and miraculously Sue and  a handful of dedicated volunteers brought it off. Last year,  having got her feet wet, she  got off to an earlier start and  it was generally agreed that it  was one of the most Cavalcades ever held.  Last year we ran an editorial suggesting that the city  fathers, who had held grandly  aloof from Cavalcade, might  consider lending the volunteer  group some support. The  operative word in the last  sentence is the word 'support'. What has been forthcoming has scarcely been  support.  The crux of thc problem is  contained in the following  paragraph from Sue's letter:  "Now that Sea Cavalcade  appears to be well established  we find, unlike previous years,  civic authorities making basic  decisions which will effect  Cavalcade planning without  involving thc community  volunteers whom they have  asked to be responsible for  Sea Cavalcade." It would  appear that our elected representatives, having neglected  Sea Cavalcade until it was a  success would like to sit back  in their grand wisdom and  make decisions. The hardworking volunteers who have  made it possible are expected  to unquestioningly obey and to  continue to do all the work.  It just doesn't work like that  gentlemen.  What we have here is an  illustration of very profound  and philosophic differences of  approach. Everybody helped  Sue Rhodes because everybody knew that no one worked  harder. They helped her  because she needed and deserved it and because she  embodied the community  spirit. That's what volunteer  organizations are like.  In the opposite camp we  have men who believe in the  principle of hierarchy developed by a career in the mili  tary. There you give commands and lesser mortals  obey.  Now I have had some experience in community efforts myself during the years  I was directing plays for thc  Driftwood Players locally and  other groups elsewhere and it  is my opinion that when you  are working with unpaid volunteer groups, with people  who arc involved for no  other reasons than the joy  of doing and thc good of the  community, thc hierarchical,  command-issuing approach  just doesn't work. You seek  to engage people in a co-operative endeavour which will  give them nothing but the  satisfaction of a job well-  done and you do it by persuasion, by coaxing and by working harder than anyone else  yourself. That's how it is in  small-town community endeavours. Sue Rhodes knows  that. Those who are giving  her orders and thinking it's  support do not.  What exacerbates the situation, of course, is that some  of the decisions which are  being made and relayed to  the volunteer workers are  highly questionable and,  since as far as I can determine  we are not yet all in uniform  they deserve to be questioned.  Thc beer gardens, for example, which have been traditionally in Dougal Park are  to be moved, we are informed,  up to the curling club at thc  behest of thc local constabulary so that we can be contained within walls and under  artificial lighting. Thc Teen  Dance, traditionally held on  thc wharf is to be moved up  the hill presumably for the  same reasons. There arc two  objections obvious. First of  all tradition in these matters  is important to the community  and secondly, is it the city  lathers' intention to turn the  Lower Village into a ghost  town or will it just be done  accidentally? Now, if we could  just find a way  of getting  Armour's Beach into the  curling club   Fellow columnists Matthews and Moore this week  have engaged themselves with  questions of civilization and  barbarism. The hierarchically  minded would have us believe  that through obedience and  law and order is civilized  living maintained. And yet I  am unable to escape the nagging suspicion that unquestioning obedience has led to  thc major atrocities in recent  history. It was uniformed  men unquestioningly obeying  that led gas ovens in Europe;  it was men in uniform who  unquestioningly obeyed their  orders for ten years while  raining thc most unimaginable  destruction und suffering on a  peasant people in Vietnam  'in order to save them'.  Now when il comes lo civilization, forgive me for intruding George, it seems to  me that a very large word in  the lexicon of society must be  co-operation, li is my conviction that it is people working together, co-operating  that makes social life possible. It is my conviction that  those who would make us  tidy by having us obey inevitably make the wrong decisions and give the wrong  orders and it is when they are  obeyed the really big mistakes  are made.  And apart from questions  of civilizations and barbarians  and historic inevitability, they  would remove from us one  of Ihe greal joys. Ihe joy of  giving of ourselves wilh high  volition and a generous heart,  the joy of mutuality, of complete and selfless co-operation. It is ihe great spiritual  lack in out society. It's why  many of us fled thc city to  find something more neighbourly in the country. It's  why Sue Rhodes, who is willing to work endlessly for the  sake of this community, will  not take orders that she has  not been consulted on and why  I am on her side.  Animals  / think I could turn and live with animals, they are so placid  and self contained:  I stand and look at them long and long.  They do not sweat und whine about their condition;  Thev do not lie awake in the dark and weep for their sins;  They do not make me sick discussing iheir duty lo God;  Nol one is dissatisfied���nol one is demented with the/  mania of/owning things;  Not one kneels to another, nor lo his kind that lived thou- /  sands/of years ago;  Nol one is respectable or induslioits over ihe whole earth.  by wait whitman  Slings & Arrows  George Matthews  "Is Canada a civilized  country?" may be the Icasl  asked and perhaps most unimportant question of the  twentieth century. Being a  person who is not frightened  off by insignificant issues,  however. I think it is time  someone faced thc problem  squarely and attempted a  final and definitive answer.  Civilization is a relative  idea. There are no thoroughly  civilized nor thoroughly uncivilized societies. In thc most  civilized societies, acts of  barbarism can occur, just as in  the most barbaric societies,  civilized acts can occur. What  then, makes a society or country civilized?  First, a civilized society  values rationalism and knowledge over superstition  and fear. A society which  fears Ihe unknown and lacks  the courage, confidence and  curiosity to seek to understand its unknowns is less likely to be capable of civilization. In this sense at least,  the ancient Greeks and Romans were more civilized  than thc ancient Gauls or  Britons.  A product of rationalism  and knowledge and another  essential ingredient of civilization, is tolerance. A society which seeks to standardize behavior and eliminate  the differences between people is less likely to be civilized lhan thai which is not  threatened by those differences. In this sense, early  twentieth century England  was more civilized than the  Germany of the same period.  Further, a society which has  a high regard for the qualities  and contributions of those  qualities wc think of as male  and female is probably  more civilized. When the female principle is dominated  by the male, society will more  often than not have barbaric  tendencies. For example, the  difference in attitudes between medieval society and  the Renaissance suggests  that as the status of women  improves, even a small  amount, great progress is  made in civilization. Ghengis  Khan and Attila the Hun  were not known for their  high regard of the female  principle.  Strong social institutions  which have the support of the  people are also essential  features of a civilized country.  Institutions which threaten  to collapse at the first signs of  outside influence will not provide the degree of confidence  necessary to promote civilization. Institutions which are  imposed on thc people become  static and lack the flexibility  needed to withstand threat.  For ihis reason dictatorships  are not civilized and while  Ihcy may show outward signs  of strength and stability, they  must always, eventually collapse. On the other hand,  weak, indecisive and unstable institutions are equally vulnerable. It is curious  for example, how quickly the  native societies colonized by  European countries in the  nineteenth century collapsed  at the first intrusion of the  foreigners.  Also, democratic societies'  are more likely to be civilized  than autocratic ones. Ancient  Athens, fifteenth century  Florence, nineteenth century  Britain, twentieth century  United States, were relatively  civilized because thev were,  compared to other societies,  democratic.  Kenneth Clark, in his book  Civilization, pointed out that a  society's art can be revealing  of its degree of civilization.  Art which has lightness and  confidence and is humanistic  tends to suggest a society  which has more of the qualities wc think of as civilized  than art which depicts darkness, fear and superstition.  In this sense, the art of the  ancient Greeks was more  civilized than thc art of  ancient Africa.  How then docs Canada  rate in the spectrum of  civilization?  There is a strong strain of  religious fundamentalism in  Canada which is in some  respects anti-rational, There  also exist some isolated pockets of superstitious belief,  but generally speaking Canadian society has a high regard  for rationalism and knowledge.  Few societies could accept  so readily the huge influx  of immigrants. Canada has a  small population and recent  immigrants, particularly in  urban harcas, have had a  great impact. Not many  societies are tolerant enough  to deal with this kind of immigration. Give Canada a  B+ for tolerance.  Despite the attempt of the  Federal government to suggest Canadian institutions  are not strong enough to  survive the French-English  issue, the facts suggest otherwise.  In all other respects Canada, 1 think, rates as a very  civilized country. Of course if  I were a citizen of Pago Pago  or Tibet 1 could probably  construct an equally sensible  argument that those places  were more civilized but in  the meantime. I think I'll  stay here.  MM  riMMM  MUM  ��� Coast News. May 30. 1978  Province News Services  LOS ANGELES - If you think  pizza with anchovies is delicious,  you should try it with earthworms.  Deanna Ellis' recipe for Pizza  Aux Verres de Terre Extraordinaire ��� pizza with earthworms ���  has won first prize in North American Bait Farm's Third Nationwide  Earthworm Recipe Contest  "It's just a pizza with everything  on it," Miss Ellis, of Runnells,  Iowa, said modestly. " You boil the  worms, mix with sausage, fry real  crisp and sprinkle on. I only made  the pizza once before. My dad and  brother ate it, but my mother and  sister refused to touch it."  Miss Ellis, who won $500 for her  recipe, was one of 10 finalists in the  contest. The finalists were flown to  Los Angeles for three days and had  to prepare their dishes for the  judges. Entries were judged on  taste and eye appeal.  LETTERS  Poisons  Sir:  Re: Poisons In Ihe Environment  We are being told by certain  "authorities" that certain concentrations of poisons are "ac-  ceptable" or "allowable" in our  physical surroundings, our food,  water, and our bodies.  It's time wc asked who has  the right to make such decisions,  and on what basis. Who has  Ihe right to take chances with  your health? I for one feel that  no one has the right to poison me  nor my water supply, my food,  air or anything else.  Maximum dosage levels of  various poisons and harmful  substances have been set for the  purpose of protecting people from  exposure to these materials. A  very unfortunate result of the  setting of these maximum dosages is that some irresponsible  people decide it's alright to poison their neighbours at that rate,  and what's more, they have an  "authority" to condone their  actions.  Another unfortunate result of  this thinking is that once one  poison is allowed, it is easier to  slip another one in. then another.  Pretty soon poisonous substances  arc so common and are used with  such careless abandon that we  become blase about their abuse.  The effects of many of these  substances on the natural state  and on our own health are not  always easy to measure, particularly at Ihe "permissible"  dosage levels, yet this doesn't  mean that lhc effects arc nonexistent. Many people arc pretty  insensitive to their physical  condition anyway ��� these are  thc very people who had best  be careful of what they expose  themselves to. Poisons are insidious: Iheir effects may not be  immediately apparent. Who  knows how much better you  would feel if you hadn't been  exposed to this material or that?  oi' how much your span of years  has been reduced?  The list of toxic substances  to which wc have all been exposed is growing longer and thc  concentratons are becoming  larger. Levels of toxins are  accumulating in the environment and in ourselves.  It's us against "them", and  they know it. It's important  that we win. for they are really  us.  Nicol Warn,  Halfmoon Bay  Responsible  Sir:  Subject:   Transmission   right-of-  way   Vegetation   Control   ���  Sechelt Peninsula  I wish to thank you for the responsible and factual reporting  you  did on our Meeting  with  Members of the Sunshine Coast  Regional District Board, held on  Fridav,   May   12.   1978  during  which time we discussed B.C.  Hydro's Policy on Chemical and  other methods used to control  our Transmission Line Right-  of-Way on the Sechelt Peninsula.  Thanks again.  E.Hensch,  District Manager  Impressive  Sir:  Enclosed is a cheque for a  one year subscription. Your  columns and editorials on local  issues in thc past few months  have been damn impressive.  Keep it up.  G.Gibbons  Box 466,  Sechelt, B.C.  Wrist slap  Editor:  On the occasion of the official  opening of Cedar Grove School  your reporter was present to  cover the event, and took several  pictures during the programme.  As president of thc Sechelt  Teachers' Association it was  indeed flattering to have one's  picture in the newspaper. However, I was distressed by the  fact that you neglected to identify  in the caption thc other guests  on the platform. Nor did you  carry a story of the ceremonies,  which included not only the  "dignitaries", but the children  who attend Cedar Grove School.  Many hours were devoted to  thc planning of the school by the  Trustees, teaching staff, architects and others, and I feel it was  an affront to those individuals  that you did not sec fit to identify, nor print a news item of thc  celebration.  What happened to your usual  community spirit  and identity?  Doris Fuller,  President. Sechelt Teachers Assn  Democracy  Sir:  On thc 15th June 763 years  ago at Kunnvmedc in England the  cornerstone of participatory  Democracy was placed with the  signing of Magna Charta to the  benefit of the Nobles of the  realm. Some 166 years later  one Watt Tyler was Hung, Drawn  and Quartered for his attempt to  implement the provisions of  Magna Charta for the benefit of  the common people. In 1903  Mrs. Emmeline Pankhurst started thc movement to obtain the  right to vote for women of the  Western World. In 1914 and  again in 1939 millions of people  laid their lives on the line in  two wars. All of these and other  less well known events had one  basic recurring theme ��� freedom  to choose their leaders and representatives and the opportunity  to participate in the governmental process, the cornerstone  of which is the vote and the right  to vote. We as a Board are placed  on the Board by those electors  who,   conscious   of  their  civic  responsibilities exercised their  inalienable right of voting us  in or out of office, thus in effect all  decisions of the Board are the  decisions of thc voters.  Mucli adverse criticism has  been bandied about concerning  thc Regional Board and its decisions, and that is part of participatory Democracy. Thc voters  having exercised their voting  rights arc entitled to look to the  Directors to whom responsibility  has been awarded lo give close  attention to their, the voters,  rights and wishes. This basic  format having been accepted  then the reverse must also be  true of those who chose not to be  a part of participatory Democracy.  The Tuwanek Log Dump rezoning has certain characteristics not Immediately apparent.  First under the Sechell and  Vicinity Plan (the Planner advises me) the portion of Lot 1410  under discussion for rc-zoning,  was set as Industrial and the  relevant map was so marked.  This being so. the fact must be  borne in mind that the Vicinity  Plan became law and. to my  mind, thc eventual re-zoning of  the Log Dump was a part of that  Law. It is worthy of note that the  Public Hearings on the Plan bear  no notations of opposition to the  rc-zoning.  The qucsion now arises: what  was I as the concerned Director  being asked to do by the Tuwanek  and Sandy Hook residents?  Simply to have the legal application of thc re-zoning blocked from  implementation at the behest of  thirty-four duly registered constituents rightly concerned about,  thc welfare of the area anc* their  own corner of it ih particular.  A very reasonable matter for  sympathetic consideration.  I must draw attention to the  following staggering facts:  At about 8 p.m. on Saturday  13th May. I received a phone  call from one of thc two leaders of  thc Residents Association regarding the petitions to block both thc  B.A. Blacktop, and thc Tuwanek  Log Dump implementations. This  man had the temerity to threaten  the Board in general and myself  in particular with legal action to  the tunc of $200 individual  fines per day. and much more  tarradiddle.

You can find  cne of his books in just about  any bunkhouse on the coast.  Otherwise illiterate men with  small patience for reading of  any sort, have entire poems  committed to memory. Elmer  has a guitar-playing buddy-  called Sam Mackleroy, a skinny red-headed kid who aspires  to be another Hank Williams.  He's taken Swanson's ballad  about Rough House Pete and  set a tune to it. As music, it's  probably no kind of hell at  ail but in the humdrum confines of that bunkshack, il  sounds pretty good, We're  convinced, along with Sammy,  that he's going to make it  big.  "Cooks as a rule, swing a  cleaver; they're bitter and flippant of tongue." So goes a  line in one of Swanson's  poems. I've always figured he  was exaggerating for dramatic  effect. One listless Sunday  afternoon. Sammy, Elmer and  I are having a coffee in the  cookhouse. The head-cook is  a short bald Englishman  called Hodges. He seems  neither bitter nor flippant.  Suddenly thc door bursts open  and a big Indian called Masa-  tchi John comes reeling in.  He's tracked down some  booze someplace and he looks  meaner than a gutshot grizzly. "Hey Hodges, I want  something to eat," he slurs  drunkenly.  "Supper's at five o'clock,"  says Hodges reasonably.  "You make me something  right now!" Masatchi John  insists.  The^ little Englishman undergoes a sudden transformation. "You get the bloody  hell out of my cookhouse right  now!" he yells and, by God,  if he doesn't actually pick up  a cleaver and take right after  thc big Indian. Masatchi  John is twice his size but he  makes tracks in a hurry.  "Be goddamned if I'll put up  with that sort of nonsense in  my kitchen!" declares Hodges  emphatically. We nudge each  Pages  from a Life-Log  Peter Trower  other in ill-concealed delight.  Swanson hadn't been stretching things after all.  Such diversions are few and  far between however, those  first few weeks, lime hangs  heavy on our hands during  the off-hours. Long Beach is  only a short hike from the  camp. We go there sometimes on weekends and watch  thc surf pounding primcvally  on thc unsullied sand while  Sam strums his lonesome  guitar. It's awesomely empty  in these days before its discovery by vacationers and  squatters ��� a reaching white  expanse uncluttered by huts  and garbage, looking much as  it must have looked in other  centuries. No wet-suited  sutlers ride those cold rollers.  It belongs to the wind and the  gulls.  Things arc pretty quiet  around Kennedy Lake up to  this point but all that is due  to change with a bang. Until  now. the closest source of  booze has been at Tofino.  a good many miles upcoast  so the drinking around camp  has been minimal. In August  however, a new pub is scheduled to open at Uclulct. Thc  village has been legally dry  since the airforce-base was  phased-out after the War.  It is to be dry no longer.  The camp hums with thirsty  anticipation as the opening-  date draws near. We stand  around the spanking-new  hotel with our tongues hanging out. watching them wheel  in the cases and kegs. My  thirst is as keen as anyone's  but I'm dogged by a certain  apprehension. This is going  to be a damn skimpy stake  at best. I can ill-afford to  squander any of it.  1 actually consider trying  to stay home on opening night  but my shakcy will-power  rapidly erodes under the urging of Elmer and Sam. We  drag a few dollars from the  office and hit that virginal  bar the  minute thev  unlock  thc doors. Before long it's  a roaring bedlam as virtually the entire camp and  every other beerhound in  the near-vicinity converges  on the place. Of the three of  us. only Elmer is actually  over twenty-one but no one  seems to give a damn. Masatchi John goes on the warpath and reels from table to  tabic spoiling for a fight.  Finally he gels more than he  bargained lor. A short burly  hooktender called Kemp  jumps up. He's apparently  done some professional boxing and he decks the big Indian with a couple of well-  thrown punches. I half-expect a brawl to erupt but no  one else seems in a fighting  mood. They're too busy guzzling suds. We come hoo-  railing back to camp at  closing-time and stay up  drunkenly singing half thc  night.  From this point on, Kennedy Lake becomes a pretty  damp camp. The next night's  Saturday and there's a dance  at the local community-  hall which we attend in suitably beer-logged condition.  There's a singular shortage  of women and I begin making  tentative advances to an  attractive blonde girl until  Elmer tips me that she's  the wife of Kemp, the ex-  boxer. I notice him glowering  at me and back off in a hurry.  The novelty of having a  beer-supply so close to hand  has not worn off when work  recommences on Monday.  We're like kids in a candy-  store and every night becomes  a party. Guys start showing  up lo work half-cut with bottles of beer hidden in pockets  and gut-cans. I don't know  how long it's going to keep up  and I sure as hell can't afford  to hang around and find out.  The wedding date is drawing  close and I've already put a  dent in my stake. That Friday. I grab an out-bound  boat and leave Elmer, Sammy  and thc rest to their carousing.  Back in thc city, I pick up  thc black serge suil with the  drape-shape. I've ordered  from an East-end tailor and  show up at the church to  fumble the ring on cue. more  nervous than the bridegroom.  Wc see the newly-weds on  their way. 1 end up with the  bridesmaid's sister and wc  settle down to celebrate.  Not much more than a week  later. the wedding-suit's  in thc hock-shop and I'm  down on t'arrall Street eye-  balling the agency blackboards again. Just one more  camp till Christmas and then  I'll pack-in the woods for  certain. Although I don't  suspect it then. I'm over  twenty years oul in my figuring.

ARIES (March 21-April 19)  Hopefully. your domestic  environment continues to be the  place for increased pleasures and  contentment. The urge to  decorate, remodel or expand the  home should Fill you with optimism. The price of having a  good time is the source of midweek disagreements.  TAURUS (April 20-May 20)  Routine journeys, phone calls,  messages, and correspondence  continue to bring opportunities.  Hollow all leads and you can't  go wrong. Your unnecessary  nagging and bitching is probably  the root of weekend domestic  upsets.  GEMINI (May 21-June 21)  Although it's a week of bargains and sudden Financial opportunities, you have to guard  against overspending for the  sheer joy of it. At Ihe weekend  you'll realize that arguments  with brothers, sisters, and close  neighbours are a waste of time.  Much cure will lie needed on  short journeys and local visits.  CANCER (June 22-July 22)  Of all the signs. Cancer is  still favoured for continued personal opportunities and advancement. You have to take advantage of your more optimistic  attitude and increased popularity. Remember, he who hesitates is lost. Weekend money  hassles are linked to friends  and splitting the bill.  LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)  You now have to believe your  inner feelings, insights, and  hunches despite disappointing  weekend communications. Complaints about your recent achievements hint of jealousy unci should  be ignored. Those born around  August 17 must protect personal  safetv as the week closes.  VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)  Listen carefully lo the suggestions of friends and acquaintances who may have the key lo  your dearest aspirations. Work  channelled into group projects  now brings much deserved  rewards and esteem. Take a  bow. It's a waste of energy arguing your philosophical viewpoint  towards  thc  end  of thc  LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23)  Career, position, and reputation arc still subject to further  opportunities and advancement.  Don'l blow your chances by  flaunting a too relaxed altitude.  Your credibility is still being  assessed. Have nothing to do  with lhc financial upsets of mere  acquaintances.  SCORPIO (Oel. 24-Nov. 22)  As Ihe desire to improve  skills and learn more continues,  others begin lo notice your more  sophisticated mental approach.  Contacts with people and places  far away are still a source of  advancement. Unfortunately,  weekend disagreements with  loved ones may concern your  intellectual conceit and aloofness.  SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23Dec.21|  Attention focuses on other  people's money and resources.  Make il understood that you're  entitled lo a larger slice of the  pie. Anyone employed must prepare lor differences in work-  scene methods and attitude.  Long-distance communications  bring temporary frustrations or  disappointments.  CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)  Getting things done with the  assistance of others now produces much more than doing  them alone. Pull your weight  for best results. Refuse to  worry about delays concerning  long-term investments, insurance  or tux matters. Weekend social  activities arc subject to petty  financial problems.  AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)  Here's hoping that those  unemployed or wishing to change  jobs are ready for fresh opportunities. It's now or never so  grab what you can. Domestic  affairs are tense and produce  arguments as the week closes.  Advice is lo seek being alone.  PISCES (Feb. 19-M��r.20)  Inner contentment is still  strongly linked to social life.  taking a chance, and simply  having a good time. Creativity  hits a new optimistic high.  Frustrating messages and local  journeys are linked to health  and employment problems.  4  PdMICIPdCTIOnl  The Canadian movement lor personal fitness  Fitness.

The books are  translations of ancient works  of literature and philosophy,  as well as more modern works,  which are acknowledged  "classics". Many of these  works would otherwise  remain inaccessible to all but  truly dedicated scholars. Not  without justification, the latest  advertising slogan for Penguin  Classics calls the line "The  library of every civilized  man." It might seem ironic  that under this banner they  are publishing an increasing  amount of he literature of a  people whose reputation for  barbaric savagery is unsurpassed in western history;  the Viking Norsemen. Compared to the Norsemen, At-  tila the Hun and the other  raiders who periodically swept  into Europe from the east  east were minor inconveniences. The Norsemen  terrorized Europe, Britain and  the Mediterranean area for  over three hundred years.  They were the scourge of the  civilized world. An Anglo-  Saxon prayer of the period  implores, "Lord, preserve  us from the fury of the Northmen". In the last years of  the 8th century, they launched  themselves across the seas in  longships patterned after the  narrow seaworthy craft in  which they fished and travelled their native fjords. In  the course of their search  for plunder and relentless  explorations they followed the  great rivers of Russia from the  Baltic to the Black Sea, where  a group of Norsemen formed  the Varangar Guard, the personal bodyguards of the Byzantine Emperor at Constantinople. On the north coast of  France they founded by conquest thc Duchy of Normandy,  which would later play such an  important role in English  history, and for a time they  ruled much of England itself. They occupied much of  Scotland. Orkney, the Hebrides, and founded a Norse  kingdom at Dublin. Eventually they migrated to the Faroes,  Iceland. Greenland, and,  four hundred years before the  birth of Columbus, they discovered and colonized North  America.  We have come to call them  Vikings, though thc word is  properly a verb, not a noun.  To the Norsemen, to go raiding was to go "viking".  The word is derived from the  word "vik", meaning a river  or stream. Norsemen habitually landed their longships  at the mouths of streams and  rivers, knowing that towns  and cities would be situated  along thc banks.  Though the Viking raids  continued into the 11th century, by the middle of the  9th century the nature of the  raids had changed. Thc raiders came in search not only  of plunder, but of land for  permanent settlement. It is  believed that overpopulation  in Scandinavia, where agricultural land is limited, and  an unfair system of land tenure which disinherited younger sons, transformed the  Norse tradition of casual  piracy into a full scale migration. In addition, the people  themselves were a rustic,  independent, individualistic  bunch and during this period  many felt themselves oppressed by the growing centralized power of the Royal House  of Norway. Being a warrior-  society, they also had the  unfortunate habit of settling  their disagreements rather  abruptly, usually with a sword  or battleaxe. It was a habit  they were unable to break and  it ultimately proved to be their  downfall, but many of the  early immigrants were the  families of men exiled for  murders.  It was the island of Iceland  which became the cultural  focal point of this expatriate  society. Within a generation  the inhabitants thought of  themselves proudly as Icelanders, in spite of their continuing close economic and  cultural ties with Norway.  They instituted a quasi-  democratic political system  based on a yearly meeting of  landholders and petitioners.  In the absence of a hereditary  ruling caste, this parliament,  called the Althing, was presided over by an elected  Law-Speaker, and exercised  both legislative and judiciary  powers. Iceland had a profound effect on the Norsemen. The sense of being pioneers, explorers, even outlaws,  made them self-conscious.  During the long winter months  they loved to tell tales of their  adventures at foreign courts,  particularly the ancestral  court of Norway, or to recount  the story of their own migrations and settlements. The  telling of these tales evolved,  in thc 12th and 13th centuries,  into a highly sophisticated  art form; the Sagas.  Iceland seemed to stimulate  the poetic streak in the  Norsemen. For many years  Icelandic poets had a virtual  monopoly on the position of  Court Poet, not only at the  Royal Court of Norway, but  at every court where Norse  was the official language.  Snorri Sturluson, an Icelander  and one of the greatest saga-  writers, also composed the  "Prose Edda", much of which  consists of a technical manual  for Norse poets, cataloguing  and giving examples of the  various and complex techniques of Norse court poetry.  The Icelanders were also obsessed by history and by  historical methods. Icelandic  historians scrupulously identify hearsay evidence whenever  they make use of it. Their historical sense is so powerful  that for many years the Sagas  were regarded unquestionably  as historical material. In a  sense, they are, but ultimately  they are much more than mere  :***************  NOP  Gibsons Harbour Area  Great Canadian and  British Paperbacks  886-7744  y.....V.V.V.\ ��� 1  J*R  CONCRETE S  CONSTRUCTION LTD.  asipsi  f:  if! u house framing  INDUSTRIAL RESIDENTIAL  I.  general contracting &  renovations  it floors, sidewalks, patios  it retaining walls  it foundations  it parking lots  ���..swimming pools  -r.

Scholarship has exposed factual errors in the  Sagas, but it has also identified them for what they are; a  fusion of history and poetry  which transcends both, an  art form whose purpose  was not merely to record or  glorify events, but rather to  understand them and to make  them comprehensible in human, psychological terms.  The Sagas are about people  and their often tragic motivations.  The earliest Sagas are  rough, pseudo-historical  accounts of explorations and  settlements. The two short  sagas concerning the discovery and attempted colonization of Greenland and Vin-  land (North America) are good  examples and arc printed by  Penguin in one volume. Even  in these early works, the  emphasis is on people. Eirik  the Red, father of Leif (the  Lucky) Eiriksson, discovers  Greenland while on the run  after being outlawed from  Iceland "because of some  killings". He craftily names  the forbidding place "Greenland" in the hope that an  attractive name will encourage  people to settle there. The  unscrupulous real-estate  developers who still peddle  acres of swamp or desert  under equally charming  names haven't invented  anything new. The descriptions of the white man's  first real encounter with the  Indians of North America is  fascinating, if only for its  foreshadowing of things to  come. The Vikings got right  down to business, trading a  few scraps of cloth and trinkets for a fortune in furs.  They could have taught the  Hudsons Bay Company a  few tricks. Once again, their  quick tempers got the better  of them and the killing of an  Indian put an end to the first  colonial outpost in North  America,  Even in Iceland, the Norsemen could never escape the  terrible consequences of  unnecessary bloodshed and  the inevitable pattern of  revenge and counter-revenge  which followed. One of the  greatest sagas of all. Njals  Saga, is concerned almost  solely with this theme, though  it runs through almost all the  sagas. Njals Saga is the story  of a prosperous Icelandic  family drawn gradually into  a destructive feud which culminates in their destruction.  Throughout the saga, Njal  who is gifted with prophecy,  or perhaps simple common  sense, sees where events are  leading, but is powerless  to prevent the impending  disaster. Time and again,  the chieftains meet at the  Althing and attempt to set-  Len Wray and his crew, Harold Pratt, Allen Duffy, and Billy Glassford,  exhibit sword of honour presented by Allied Van Lines to the company  which exhibited the largest increase in business in a single year in Canada  for last year.

Njals Saga, by  an anonymous Icelander,  stands with the llliad and  War and Peace as a moving  portrait of human beings  caught in a net of obligations  and events of their own  making which they are unable to control. Though the  events described in Njals  Saga occurred in the earlier  history of Iceland, the work  reflects the problems of the  author's own time, the feuds  and civil strife which ultimately caused Iceland to  lose its independence and revert to a backward, vassal  province of Norway, the very  power the original Icelanders  had defied.  Ironically, one of the greatest saga-writers, Snorri  Sturluson, a reknowned  poet and a trained historian  who knew, perhaps better  than any other Icelander,  the danger of power politics  and feud-intrigue, was himself a victim of those forces.  In spite of his literary and  historical interests he was a  wealthy and powerful man  who could not resist political  intrigue. At the age of 65,  events he had helped to set in  motion caught up with him.  Armed men attacked his  house and Iceland's finest  historian and poet, author of  the Heimskringla, "The Orb  of The World", a tremendous  cycle of sagas, was murdered  in the cellar; a victim of a  feud.  Penguin Classics has  brought out Njals Saga,  King Harald's Saga, The Vin-  land Sagas, and several others. Still others are in the  works.

For several  weeks there is a feeling ���  magic born in the ripening  hay and hot northern sun; and  told again, again, in the  migration of things ��� which  moves in thc air because the  geese have returned.  And before, when their  arrival is awaited, conversation turns toward last year's  geese, and the years' before  and though instinct is strong  everyone secretly, guiltily  grows in his heart a kernel  of doubt: until the far away  heralding from thc north  comes first like an echo then  loud and anyone who is still  in the fields toward evening  looks over the high Cotton-  woods, head tilted, smiling  for friends. Someone shouts,  "Thc geese arc here!"  as the long formation begins  to circle and dissipate, coming  closer and the farmhouse  empties, tractors buzz to a  halt, while wc all run to  stand on thc far edge of the  big cow pasture, a small  welcoming line, silent and  content, controlling the urge  to run any closer, forced to  respect the private needs and  wishes of our shy guests; we  walk back to machinery and  home in the last sunlight with  the fading sounds of the geese  bedding down in the willows  on the sandbanks of the Fraser. We feel like a harbour.  I am moved to tell this  story because there has recently been comment in this  paper and our community  regarding the treatment of  wild animals. My feelings are  idyllic, but 1 have put much  thought into my reasons and  have concluded they are logical and applicable. My own  life happens to be spent with  much concern for animals,  wild and domestic; I do not  expect this of others and of  course it is not a realistic  position for nw people.  However, unti ently, I  had not analyzed with any  real critical attempt my beliefs regarding the protection  and conservation, the culling  and hunting of. wildlife.  Having brought up the subject lately, it is usually given  a snappy ending when most  people will ask of mc, "Do  you eat meat?" My reply  being "Yes." their closing  remark is, "Then you're a  hypocrite." at which point my  face reddens, not with the  embarrassment which they  smuggly think they have  caused mc. but with the physical exertion of containing all  I would like to say about  things which are dear to me  but for which I had not formed  thc verbal responses. It is  becoming clearer now though,  and I would like lo defend the  life of the forest- and sky-  dwellers.  Back to thc gecsc. and my  father-in-law.  Henry Christensen grows  grains and he mows the hay;  he also raises beef cattle:  Hcrcfords. steers that end  up on our plates. Hc is a  quiet, lull, gaunt man; a Dane,  a farmer.    Al Ihe age of six  or thereabouts he was hired  out by his family to work on  farms in Denmark. Things  were harder in those days;  and 1 suppose he feels a degree of comfort and satisfaction now when he looks  over his large green acreage in  May, or watches the yellow  heads of his four sons, and  their brown bodies, moving  through thc gold windrippled  oats and Timothy: industrious  in August sun. Mostly he is  known as a serious, not-  sentimcntal man, sombre;  but then thc geese come, and  we call them Dad's geese.  As early as June Dad's  friends and their friends begin  thc requests; sure as the arrival of the geese. They want  to bring their guns and their  registered German Pointers  and wait on the sandbars  hidden by moving willows and  the logs, dead trees thrown  up in spring by the rushing  Fraser (that is a strong, a  heavy river in thc north;  not calmed as it is here, where  it arrives and mingles with  countless rivers). There  they would lie. sportsmanlike, armed, talking manly  talk. Happy.  Thc family holds its breath  waiting for Dad to say "no".  Hc always docs, but each  time we are afraid he will  be persuaded. Il is hard for  those men to understand in  any way the seeming paradox of a man who raises and  slaughters beef cattle, acting  in ardent defense of these  geese they wish to hunt.  You sec. what is being  objected to is the SPORT of  thc tiling. Though 1 am in  fact unsure as to my father-  in-law's exact philosophy,  it is not difficult to figure  out that hc can without an  ounce of hypocrisy justify  the protective arms he puts  out to what those of us on  that farm consider splendid,  mystical beings. Indeed, he  sincerely cares about the cattle he raises, and he sees to  it they live lives of comfort,  well fed. sheltered, disease-  free. But they are raised for  the purpose of feeding many  and though some of us have  been known to shed tears  when thc inevitably-  christened favourite is either  shipped, or perhaps worse,  slaughtered for our own  freezer, wc know in our hearts  it is the way of things, and in  fact go on to enjoy the good  beef stews and roasts.  North Americans produce  and consume more meat than  is required to meet protein  needs. That is. we raise  domestic beef. pork, sheep,  poultry to cat: animals which  give their lives for us. I would  like to think of it as a quota  of beasts, sacrificed if you will  so that thc others, the wild  ones, can live free of thc fear  of guns, able to go about thc  extremely strenuous business  of feeding and sheltering.  I would like to think those  ones would be aided, not  hunted by man. for sport.  It is true that aid includes  in rare cases the purposeful culling of ihe numbers in  some herds (such as the  elephants in the Kenya  preserves, where they appear  to dale to be destroying their  own   environment),   but   in  ^^ ��*����� V*     Qi���,  I SYLVANIA 26" COLOUR CONSOLE II  You can be certain you can't buy better  printing...you can only pay more money.  printed envelopes  business cards  letterheads  88  88  6-2622  6-7817  it brochures  it booklets B  it raffle tickets  it admission & membership cards  NO JOB TOO LARGE OR SMALL  Call us on your next printing job and  tjoin the COlff UVI  list of satisfied customers.

Sportsmen do not seek the sick and  the aged (with the exception  perhaps of the great-aged  antlercd beasts; where a  trophy of many points is a  prestigious possession indeed and no matter that a  hunter has finally 'bagged'  a valiant strong animal which  was able through guile, wisdom and luck to escape for  years, but not forever, to  grow to be that very possession they crave). So I cannot  buy those claims some hunters  make about aiding the welfare of thc wild animals,  keeping their numbers down  so the survivors will live  better lives. Until next fall  Ihat is. And too many times  I have seen or heard of moose  calves orphaned when by  law their mothers were not  'in season'; I have heard of  the headless dcers come  upon in thc thick trees, where  they were left by hunters  who never intended to eat  them, interested only in the  prize, the trophy; these  things happen too often for  me to believe that many,  or even most, hunt for the  food and with concern for  thc animals.  Many native peoples and  the so-called 'primitives'  apologized when they took the  life spirit from an animal.  They understood: it grieved  them to be draining thc magic  from thc magnificent noble  creatures, but they had to  eat. Recently a column appeared in support of hunting.  Therein hunting was described as "thc ultimate  expression of freedom" and  likened to our most primitive,  basic instincts. And yet. the  primitives did not make sport  of slaughter: they killed to  live: am I to understand the  ultimate sports hunter lives  to kill? Ultimate expression  of freedom? I am appalled  at the excuses made for  blood lust. Where even is  the contest? 1 should better  think the freedom exists in  contemplation of the flight,  not thc fall of. a goose.  Some few days after my  father-in-law hangs up the  phone when thc final requests  to hunt have been turned  down, he himself dons cap  and gun. sharpens his steely  eyes and moves out in the  morning; this is his yearly  ritual pattern, some ceremony  he engages in. Hc is off to  catch thc Christmas goose.  Do we worry? Well, at Christmas we eat turkey.  No one is certain as to  exactly what Dad is trying to  prove when he sets off on the  designated day. Perhaps he  feels hc owes it to his friends,  or his manhood, to make the  attempt. Perhaps he fully  believes ihat. This Year,  he will Do It. But mother has  occasionally gone with him,  and she reports that the day is  spent lying in tall dry grasses,  or in slow ireks across the  sandbars, in blissful observance of his prey, the geese.  I guess they know his intent  by now and they accept him  in their midst, gun and all,  barely moving at his presence.  I imagine him; moved to awe  and respect by those somehow austere creatures: 1  imagine lhc lure of their  instincts, thc wonder at their  migration, the fascination  one can't help feci when you  think of that basic, collective  something ��� 'intelligence',  mystique. This man whose  life is a rigid, rather Spartan  affair is sincerely stirred. I  recall Hopkins' poem, The  Windhover, and feel it is the  same for my in-law: "...My  The axle in this inter-city truck gave way last Wednesday in Ihe middle of  Lower Gibsons.

This man who  is lied lo earth and roots is  simply moved by the flight,  freedom, motion of the Canada Geese that shelter on his  farm.  Whatever it is he feels  he comes home late in the day,  sometimes mumbling about  next year's goose, sometimes bubbling (this sombre  man) about the wondrous  activity of thc birds; but always a failed Sportsman.

And that marvelous blue-teal glow on the  feathers of living ducks: it,  too, wains with the life thc  bullet takes to some, sentimental drivel, silly idealism.  My stand is that it doesn't  take my rather sentimental  feelings for thc wild things to  appreciate them, to wish to  protect them, and to view  hunting for sport as unnecessary al best: wanton, even  decadent slaughter at worst.

This fact became  apparent in the Canada-U.S.  negotiations over a Fishing Treaty for 1978. This issue is very  complex but one which B.C. residents must be made aware of.  The Canada-U.S. fishing pact  is presently being negotiated.  The Federal Fisheries Minister,  Romeo Leblanc, is thc Federal  Minister responsible. Mr. Leblanc comes from a riding in  New Brunswick (Westmoreland-  Kent) which has a fishing industry. As the negotiating stand  Mr. Leblanc is willing to trade  off   B.C.   fishing   concerns   in  exchange for enhanced powers in  the East Coast fishery. As the  negotiations stand Americans  would gain influence in the West  Coast salmon industry and lose  in   the   East   Coast  cod   trade.

What is Premier Bennett doing  in this regard? He said he sent  a cable to Ottawa outlining  B.C.'s position and concerns.  That is ridiculous. Mr. Leblanc is talking of negotiating  one of B.C.'s largest industries  out of existence or severely  curtailing its activities. A cable  is not enough!  It must be made abundantly  clear to Ottawa that B.C.'s  fishing concerns are non-negotiable. The Premier once again  displays his disregard for the  working people of B.C. When it  is time to stand up and be strong,  where is Bill Bennett?  Further in this matter. B.C.  should have sent an observer to  thc Law of the Sea Conference in  Geneva this year. The observer  would have been able to lend  advice to the federal government on how certain positions  affect B.C. This would have  allowed the province's perspective to be considered in the negotiations by thc federal government.  In both these matters Premier  Bennett has shown hc has little  regard for B.C.'s fishing industry. But the B.C. fishing industry provides for the people of  B.C. It is time for thc premier to  take action, but be docs nothing.  Glaucoma  Glaucoma is an eye disease  which affects 1 % of thc average  population over forty years of  age. It is usually insidious and  gives no symptoms. It is most  frequently related to an increase  in pressure within the eye and  this results in poor blood flow  to vital structures at the back of  the eye.  A glaucoma screening clinic  sponsored by the Sechelt Lions  Club and run by the Department  of Ophthalmology, U.B.C. will  be run at thc Sechelt clinic on  June 15���16 at the Medical  Clinic.

Gibsons Council  A letter from Art MePhee,  area co-ordinator. listed some  changes in the organization of  the Provincial Emergency  Programme (PEP). The Sunshine Coast is now part of  the Lower Mainland Region  with headquarters in Abbots-  ford. Names like Civil Defense and Emergency Measures Organization are no  longer applicable to PEP.  I'EP's objective is to organize and train local volunteers  in search and rescue, and to  aid police and other government agencies in times of  disaster such as oil spills,  tidal waves, earthquake, and  forest fire that threatens  built-up areas.  A letter from K.A.Crosby,  president of Creekside Park  Estates, states that they are  now sending subdivision plans  to the Pollution Control  Board and the Health Department for approval of their  ' sewage and water lines  which will be part of the Gibsons system. Concerning this  subdivision, a letter from  Dayton and Knight, consulting engineers, points out a  deficiency in part of the surface drainage system and  recommends reinforced concrete pipe down the steep  bank to Gibsons Creek and a  thirty-inch continuous concrete drain from North Road  to the creek to avoid the need  for a ditch of eight-foot width.  Transport Canada has  reminded the Village  that it must tender for the  lease of the wharf according  to federal regulations.  Local insurance agent,  Charles English, presented  the low bid in Gibsons' invitational call for general  insurance coverage for 1978,  and was awarded the contract.  Charles English's bid was  $6,631 for the total premium  on fire, liability, and boiler  and machinery insurance.  This bid was $624.00 lower  than thc bid of Marsh and  McLennan. Vancouver. The  bids were very close with the  major difference occurring  in the fire coverage premium.  Thc fire insurance has a total  replacement value ot  $1,224,625. This kind of blanket coverage provides full  replacement at current costs  for any building destroyed  by fire. Besides public  buildings such as fire halls,  library, health clinic and  service buildings like pump-  houses, sewage plant, rest  rooms, and ambulance garage  the Village owns two dwellings which it rents out.  Also covered in the policy  are the recreational facilities ��� pool, curling rink,  and museum.  After a brief discussion of  its previous meeting's motion  regarding tennis instruction  on the public courts. Council  concluded that it had, contrary  to one press report, quite  definitely voted down the  proposal to approve the instruction, and that there had  not been at any time any intention to reconsider that  decision.  To reduce the duties of  the clerk-treasurer to a more  manageable load, Council  approved a motion of planning committee chairman,  Ted Hume, which shifts  thc job of approving officer  to the planning consultant  Rob Buchan, for the remainder of 1978, and upon review  in December, possibly for  1979.  A taxpayer reported to the  Coast News that he missed  the inaugural garbage pickup on May 3. He had studied  the map in the newspaper,  he said, and hc knew the day  and hour. But he delayed  taking his containers to the  street so that the neighbourhood dogs wouldn't get at  them on their early morning  rounds, and he delayed too  long. If only, he said, the  truck played a tune on an  amplifier, like an ice-cream  man. it would give us just  the time wc need.  Peace  r*'>*3  By the Office of Church  In society, the United Church  of Canada  As Egyptian officials have seen  peace in the Middle East almost  within their grasp recently,  most nations around the world are  commending President Anwar  Sadat for his courageous and  totally unexpected initiative toward Israel. And yet peace is  always fairly simple to see on the  horizon ��� for those who wish to  see it. The reality of peace is far  more difficult to achieve. Yet  there has been for the first time,  real hope.  One of President Sadat's  most serious problems was the  challenge to his integrity within  the Arab world. Hc has some  bitter critics even in Egypt.  But President Sadat is so popular  among his own people, hc may  be able to resume and expand his  role as a Middle Eastern peacemaker if Israel responds with  meaningful concessions.  Fortunately. Egypt is by far  the most powerful, most prestigious and most populous of  the Arab nations. With a population of about 40 million, Egypt  ���Get'Car  Checked' at  EUROPEAN  ^> MOTORS          Before you start your holiday get  your car lubricated and free safety check  THIS SERVICE AVAILABLE  UNTIL 8:00 P.M.

Navy  Cam Ford of Co-Op Radio interviews Carol  Dulyk on picket line in front of the Bank of  Commerce last Saturday. Assistant General  Manager of the Bank of Commerce, Norm  Eakins. will be here to discuss the situation  with all parties concerned next week.  LETTERS  Hydro has no secrets  Sir:  Many of your readers probably  read a recent report in a Vancouver morning newspaper  based upon a statement by a  B.C.Wildlife Federation official  Ihat B.C.Hydro is "hiding from  the public" a gianl make-work  power construction strategy for  British Columbia. That suggestion was untrue, The facts of the  matter bear repeating.  It has always been B.C. Hydro's job to anticipate electricity  needs for the province and to  develop whatever energy resources will best meet public  demand ��� technically, economically, environmentally and socially. If the provincial government is attempting to attract new  economic activity lo B.C. and  fails to do so because there is  insufficient developed power  available for new industry.  Hydro has not done its job. There  is no secret grand strategy  involved. Hydro's job is to provide the electricity necessary to  meet the economic goals of the  province.  It's no secret the power projects mentioned in the press  report are indeed being assessed.  This work is part of our continuing program of assessing  potential energy options for  development as and when they  may be required.  Liard and IskutStikinc Rivers?  Preliminary studies were done  some years ago. and arc now  being updated to give us a current idea ol their problems,  should these energy resources  ever be needed. These studies  were thc subject of a press  announcement by B.C. Hydro  last year. Preliminary transmission line route studies to  conned these potential power  sites to thc load centres are also  being done.  McGreeor Diversion?   Studies  SUNSHINE COAST  PEST CONTROL  on that project were suspended  early this year after parasitology  studies identified five parasites  known to cause mortality ill the  Pacific (McGregor/Fraser)  drainage system that, if transferred, could endanger fish in  (he Arclic (Parsnip/Peace)  drainage system. Thc news release announcing this decision  stated "for thc moment there  appears lo be no reasonable  method of preventing McGregor  to Parsnip transfer affecting Ihe  Arctic." Studies will nol be  resumed unless thc fish problem  becomes solvable. Wc have  slated that thc McGregor could  still be developed as a conventional power resource with no  upstream diversion into Ihe Parsnip River, which would avoid  the problem of parasite transfer. Ihis limited project, however, is much less attractive  than Ihe diversion would have  been and is nol presently being  considered.  Flooding Reserves? Most of  the major rivers in B.C. have  flooding and other map reserves  on them, held by Ihe provincial  government ��� not B.C. Hydro.  Most of these reserves were  placed long before B.C. Hydro  came into existence. Reserves  exist principally to indicate  to resource users that there  may be other potential uses for  a river basin. A simple statement  of fact.  East Kootcnay Coal? B.C.  Hydro has begun preliminary  feasibility studies for a possible  thermal plant in the Fernie-  Sparwood area, using waste  coal from thc metallurgical  coal mining operations there.  Again this is no secret. We have  had a number of representations  from people in thc East Kootenay  urging this project be started.  Energy from this source may  not be required before Ihe mid-  1980's. bul could precede development at Hat Creek if it  makes economic sense to do so.  Studies will establish the facts  of thc matter.  Murphy Creek?

He pointed out that  studies after thc fact had  shown that human beings  were sixty times more sensitive to thalidomide than the  rats used in experiments.  "How can we know that this  is not so with 2,4-D?  When asked about the  comparative costs of manpower versus chemical  power clearing of right-of-  ways, the Manager of the Pesticide Control Branch admitted that they did not have  figures on thc comparative  costs. "Nor can we question," said Vance, "whether  herbicides should be used in  the first place. There is  nothing in the new legislation which empowers the  government agency to have  B.C.Hydro, for example,  justify use of herbicides.  Some revelations emanating from the experts toward  the conclusion of the forum  were that: from Doucette,  "Research presently being  done on malignant cancer  tumours arc invariably turning  up  2.4-D;  from  Cedar,  The long-defunct Sunshine  Coast S.P.C.A. will hold a meeting In the Senior Citizens Hall  In Sechelt at 7:30 p.m. on June  19.

The object Is  to re-form the Sunshine Coast  Branch of the Society and It Is  hoped that the central location  will encourage residents from the  entire region to attend.  "Tremendous amount is not  known about toxicity." In  addition, when STA President  Doris Fuller asked about how  one could get rid of herbicide  having once acquired it. Doucctte said Ihat there were no  disposal depots in the province of British Columbia.  This seemed to come as something of a surprise to the  Manager of the Pesticide  Control Branch until hc recalled that a few years ago  when faced with some considerable disposal problems  the provincial government had  had to ship it to Kamloops  to be stored in a bunker and  then the liquids were sent to  Ontario to be incinerated and  the solids finally went to  Oregon where a private enterprise firm had the facilities  to safely dispose of them.  .,��. pumic are cordially invited  to attend the annual inspection of  Navy League Cadets.

After the construction  of several hydro-electric projects  in the region there is a highly  trained construction work force  resident in the area and some  people want this employment to  continue. There is no present  plan for the development of thc  Murphy Creek project which in  the past has been rated far  below other potential alternatives. However, the cost/benefit  values of the project arc being  re-examined. This was mentioned by our Seven Mile project  construction manager at a public  meeting in Trail recently and  received considerable attention  from local news media.  In addition to the above projects. B.C. Hydro is also studying  geothcrmal potentialncar Pemberton and will also, within thc  next few months, begin preliminary feasibility studies of a hog  fuel and waste wood thermal  generating plant in thc Quesnel  area. These studies are part of  Hydro's job to program for the  future.  There is no secret about any  of thc above projects. Apart from  routine rcranking of potential  projects to meet long-term planning scenarios. Ihese potential  projects are not part of any corporate planning timetable. Nor  is there any hurry to proceed  from preliminary lo detailed  studies with any of them at the  moment. If anticipated power  needs require that any project  proceed to thc detailed study  stage there will be ample publicity and project planning information similar to that provided on ihe Hat Creek, thc  McGregor, the Site C on thc  loser Peace River, and the Kootenay River Diversion projects.

Even detailed study of a proposal by Hydro docs nol in any  way mean that ils development  is a foregone conclusion. Hydro  must seek formal government  approval for any new generating plant through a public  licensing process, and for Ihis  extensive information is needed  to identify the potential environmental and social impacts.  Wc do nol in any way lake thc  licensing process lor granted.  Nor should our critics.

By Dennis Gray  I am not exactly a disorganized  person, it's just that twenty minutes has always seemed like ample time to prepare for anything  and had il not been for a mild  case of Mapmania I would likely  not have planned our first bike  safari beyond getting on thc  ferry.  If I had planned the trip in  my normal fashion we would have  driven in one direction or another  until we broke down or ran out of  gas. This time, however, 1  stopped running in circles long  enough to focus on a map of the  Lillooet area. 1 became fascinated wilh Ihe possibilities of the  MORTGAGE MONEY  AVAILABLE  10^%  Pender Harbour Credit Union  Madeira Park, B.C.  883-2236 883-9112  many roads and trails. 1 had to  have more maps, road maps,  topographical maps, survey  maps.Forestry maps. Mining,  Aerial and even satellite photos.  Mv eves became red from studying them. It became more than  social mapping. I began to read  alone. 1 knew I was hooked. I  began to see maps anywhere and  everywhere. I lost an old friend  by suggesting the lines of his  face looked like the Gang Ranch.  Then something happened.  I began planning and preparing  for the trip. All winter I worked.  1 wrote letters. I read brochures.  I built carriers and trailers.  1 collected gear lor four people,  I even marked the date on thc  calendar, not twenty minutes,  but six months ahead. Sueh a  wave of enthusiasm was generated that we could have pedalled  our old truck there.  All this planning saw us leave  on the hottest day of the year,  driving through the hottest area  in Canada over some of the dustiest roads in thc world and  looking like a band of Gypsies.  In fact, if wc were to do that again  today we would probably get  relocation assistance. But we  made it to our destination, enthusiasm slightly battered but  still intact.  Over the next two weeks we  found that our planning had  assured us of almost everything  we needed, and as much we  didn't need. One of the things  wc did not need was an armload  of maps. You see. there are no  road signs out there and for every  trail that's named on a map  there are a dozen as good or better which are not marked. The  pay-off came when we spent half  a day looking for a road that  turned out to be a crease in the  map. But all in all it was a holiday  different from most lor we didn't  see another vacationer out there,  for that matter, we didn't see  any people at al  Wildlife  corner  Bv Ian Corrancc  BEARS  There appear to be quite a few  bears around lately.

The other hear gave Mrs. Gains  quite a scare while walking her  dog along Chaster Road. She  turned round and was surprised  to find lhal she was being joined  by a black bear, so she decided  to swiftly depart thc scene via  a drainage ditch and then on to  the safely of her home.

GOOSE EGG  A few weeks ago I put a really  exciting picture in the paper ���  I gel lucky now and then ��� the  picture was of a sawdust barge  in Port Mellon which used to  have a goose's nest on it. When  I got there (here was no sign of  it. so I figured that ils goose was  cooked. A few days ago 1 was  talking to someone who works at  the mill, darned if I can remember who. and he told me that he  had been working on Ihe barge,  and. you guessed it. out rolled  an egg. He has it at home with  a light bulb over it.  1 was reading a vitamin book  a couple of days ago.

Freethinker's Pulpit:-  Rebel in uniform  By Andy Randall  The teller of laics, whether he  be an old sailor; lumberjack;  miner; cowboy; or circus-hand;  or anything else in the worldwide scope of occupations, has  always been regarded with wide-  eyed wonder, amusement or  just plain tolerance. How often  have we heard people say, "He  would have to be as old as Meth-  usalah to have been where  he's been, and done what he  claims to have done." Now, here  1 am. smack into that category of  taleteller, if for no other right  than that 1 have been around  many places, and with little  more than a quarter of a century  to go lo reach my 100 years on  this planet.  So-oh. on with my tale of a  wee rebel. After six eventful  years in thie Gold Mine Camp of  Nickel Plate, near Hedley, B.C.,  and that of Britannia Mines, also  of this province. 1 found myself  all set for one more occupation,  one 1 felt least qualified to  handle, but there would be six  months training, testing and  qualification if satisfactory. Never in my wildest dreams could 1  see myself as some kind of a male  nurse in a hospital, but here I  was in a class of twelve all  dressed up in hospital whites.  My first uniform since 1 shucked  off my army battle-dress.  Sheer bread and butter necessity brought me to this strange  challenge to my ability to handle  what seemed, and proved to be,  a man-sized job. There was a  deep swallowing of pride too.  1 had climbed thc ladder, or  ladders there in Britannia Mines,  of senior-orc-sampler, to reach  and serve that last year of '57-  '58. thc position of acting-geologist in their Victoria Mine way  up on Mount Sheer. Also, I had  filled in as editor of the Mount  Sheer News while there. This  brand new venture would seem  like that of an army major, promoted through the ranks during  a war. and finding himself scrabbling among former subordinates  for some manual labour job in  peace time. But. the rigorous  training schedule required for the  certification of nursing orderlies,  better I say the passing of, at  Shaughncssy Hospital, gave me  little time to feel sorry for myself.  This then is my story of thc  daily trials and tribulations of  the H.N.O.'s. or Ihe Hospital  Nursing Orderlies. Those unsung, unhonoured. bul extremely  important people who act as unrecognized male nurses. My  last statement will shake the  professional and prideful feathers  of certified male nurses, but hold  your fire you starched and  trim pros, I will prove my point  during the unfolding of my tale  of a Rebel in uniform.  I said we had a six months  course of training. Actually  we had a crammed course of  six weeks intensive training, with  a spin out session that lasted the  remainder of a six month's probation. Now if you'll excuse  me I'll look for my old training  manual, and tests we had to  pass, but while you are waiting,  just reflect on this comment. No  one, and I do mean no one,  can put you through a more  disciplined and arduous regime  of training than an assistant-  matron of a hospital. Our beautiful, but perfectionist, Miss Kirk-  Patrick, just put us through the  hoops with charm, and stubborn  will.  That class of twelve shrunk to  six. Not altogether at first go,  but by dribs and drabs. The first  week took its toil of shocked  and disillusioned men when the  stark truth dawned on them that  this orderly job was not just a  wheel them in and wheel them  out thing as they'd seen pictured  on Hollywood's versions of hospital atmosphere. When Jack  Gillies, the head-orderly, on that  first day led the dozen on a grand  tour of thc hospital wards, a  lively chattering died down to a  subdued whisper here and there,  or silence. Smiling faces gradually became set and sombre. 1  swear, more than one face turned  green.  Jack Gillies knew what he was  doing. The canny Scot found  from experience that the best way  to weed the weak sisters out was  to show lo all thc real job of a  hospital orderly. "Here is Ward  Two. fellows. Here in this room  an orderly is giving an enema to  a patient in bed. Let's watch  how he does it." They watched,  and watched until the clcan-  upping was done. Stenchy results, everything. That caused  Iwo drop-outs. "Now. let's go  to thc morgue." Jack ventured  to us all as though going to the  morgue was like going to the canteen for a cup of coffee.  Wc were shown the cylindrical  interiors that looked like old-  style ovens, and each one could  hold a body. Four stark naked  stiffs lay Ihcre that day. Some of  us would find the morgue, later  in our orderly turn of duty, to  be so full, one or more corpses  must rest on the morgue floor.  There was a  mysterious  half-  door sort of safe at Ihe end  that intrigued me. the ever  curious one. Jack smiled broadly  when I pointed to thai one.  then hc slowly opened it to our  fascinated view. "Bits and pieces, lads," he jested, bul some  were not in the mood to appreciate his light-hearted style. He  went on. "In the next room  they." pointing to thc bodies  now shut from view, "are dissected ��� well, certain organs  are ��� by a pathologist and his  assistant, thc latter being one of  our orderlies."  Owen Williams, a short, genial  lad from New Zealand, asked  mc, "What's in there, Andy?"  Hc had been to a bathroom, and  missed Ihe exhibition of thc  contents in the mini-safe contraption. Now 1 knew Owen was  a sensitive soul, but he'd asked  thc question, so I opened Ihe wee  door ��� lo the remains of the  innards of a cadaver. I had to  grab Owen. I thought he was  going to keel over. Right then 1  realized that some of these  lads had not met death in its  various forms as I had in the  Second World War. I think that  will give you a fair idea of why  four more took off pronto. Never  to be seen again. 1 venture to  say. in a Hospital Orderly's  uniform.  One should not dwell too  long on such experiences or  there might just be some readers  who could lose their last meal  in a hurry. So 1 will trot along  with just a mere mention of the  skills, techniques, and overall  training we musl go through to  finally qualify as an H.N.O.  in a veteran's hospital.   Perhaps  The Sun Dispatch office at  Davis Bay is one of my favourite places to spend a rainy  day. The supply of coffee is  unlimited and the office  has a great view of thc bay.  Seascapes have the same effect on me that they seem to  have on a lot of people. I  fall into a kind of narcotic  trance and sit watching nothing in particular for hours at a  time. If I'm driving cab and 1  have to visit thc office, 1  try not to sit in thc chair by  the window. If 1 do, you'll  find me still there hours later  with my feel up, a cup of  coffee al hand, and a cat in my  lap. It's usually a toss-up  which of us is purring loudest,  me or Miss Puss. Unmoved  by the prospect of trips to  Egmont or Port Mellon, the  only thing that's likely to make  mc shift my position is the  cat's habit of flexing her  claws against my stomach.  In the offices of city taxi  companies the pace is so hectic that just being there, let  alone having to work there,  can give you a nervous breakdown. The only time drivers  ever loiter in the office to  shoot the breeze is during  thc graveyard shift, and even  it would be better to skip that  and just say thai we must know  and do jusl about everything  required by a fully trained nurse  in daily routine, jam-packed nursing. The code there, was that the  nurse directed much of the work  of Ihe orderlies in her ward, and  charted in her paperwork in thc  office al thc nursing station  on the ward, as well as giving  out medicines. Would there be  oxygen needed, the orderly got  the tank, and tent, and set them  up with, or without the help  of his nurse, or her supervision.  So it was wilh catheter-work;  putting on a 'T' binder; arm-  sling; temperatures; adjusting or  applying artificial limbs; and we  made beds, wilh or without  thc nurse to help. Like old Figaro, we would each become a  factotum, yes. even to shave like  Figaro. Some of thc old veterans  on thc various hospital wards  would later exclaim. "Damn it.  lads, you do most of Ihe nursing  here." This is by no means an  attempt to discredit thc nurses.  Mostly, they were angels in uniform. No. they had so much  paperwork to do in those nursing-  station offices Ihat Ihcy could  not always be there to act completely as bed-side nurses. Generally, where circumstances  permitted. Ihe nurse and orderly  teamed together in bed-side  nursing care. Definitely that was  so in thc afternoon, and graveyard shifts.  My ncxl sequence will consist  of the human interest side ot  what goes on behind the scenes in  a Veteran's Hospital.  then they're violating a company rule forbidding lolly-  gagging in the radio room.  Such rules arc made in the  first place because, in any  company, drivers do gct into  thc habit of hanging around in  the office when it's quiet,  drinking coffee and swapping  lies. It's a form of goofing-  off which allows you to retain  the illusion that you're still  at work. The dispatcher is  taking calls and giving out  trips, the business is going on  around you; a sense of activity  assuages whatever guilt  feelings you may have about  not being out there hustling.  However, in most urban taxi  outfits, lhc Awol driver is  condemned to a view of a  picturesque, garbage filled  alley and take-out coffee that  would be more profitably  and wholesomely applied to  thc removal of old paint.  If Coast Taxi, with its ocean  view and homemade coffee  were magically transported  to the city, they would have to  knock out a wall, put in some  bleachers and invest in a coffee-pot the size of an oil  refinery.  One of the main reasons  drivers hang around in the  office is conversation. If it's  slow and you don't have your  customers to talk to or a good  book to alleviate thc boredom, it can get lonesome  sitting out there in a parked  car, listening lo thc occasional  crackle of static from thc radio. It's not surprising that  they have a lot to talk about,  since they cover more ground  and sec more of human nature  in a month than most people  do in a year. If they don't  have anyone else to talk to,  they talk to each other, sometimes four or five in one cab,  or they descend on the office  and bend the dispatcher's  car.  A couple of weeks ago on a  rainy day Saturday I parked  my behind in the window seat  at Coast Taxi and, coffee in  hand and eal in lap. discussed  everything from child care to  reincarnation with Wendy  Eccles. who was dispatching  and knitting a shawl out of  *&  I  !

Cab  Stand  __Contlniied From Page Thirteen  we had them deliver enough  Chop Suey to people we didn't  like to feed the hordes of  Ghengis Khan. I must be  getting old."  "Nol old." Neil said. "Just  obsolete."  "Obsolete?"  "Sure. Automotive automation. Pretty soon taxis  won't have drivers.    They'll  Coast News, May 30,1978.  be remote-controlled,  equipped with closed circuit  T.V. and sophisticated guidance systems. Oh, there  will still be operators, but  they'll all be at a central  location, watching their monitors. The taxi office of thc  future will look like the NASA  space centre".  "You mean, the drivers'll  be hanging around the office  all the time?" I said.  "Right. Passengers will  get in. pop a plastic credit  card in a slot and announce  their destination to a microphone. Back at the base,  you'll pick up on your headset,  pilot them home, the computer will take their card-number  and bill them later."  "No more shovelling drunks  out of the back seat? No  more carrying groceries up  ten flights for a nickel tip?"  "Negative." he said, shaking his head. After a few  minutes of thoughtful silence,  I said. "It'll never work. People won't stand for it. They  like having a driver to talk  to. You'll wind up having to  hire somebody with a degree  in social psychology just to  ride in thc front scat and  make    conversation.        It'll  take years of study to produce  these people. They'll have to  become experts on hockey,  politics, marine engineering,  opera, you name it. They'll  have to be walking, or at any  rate riding, encyclopedias.  Think of the expense." 1  levered myself out of my  comfortable perch, disturbing  Miss Puss, who administered  an admonitory scratch to my  abdomen. "I think I'll go out  and take a few trips," I said.  "I had a feeling you might  say that." Neil said with a  small smile.  Over and Out.  ��� Continued from Page Two  tials of this potential adversary  and his supporters. 1 present  the following; of the 84 petitioners. 49 have had so little  concern for the Area that they  have nut even registered as voters. 35 are on the voters' list,  bul only six had the civic responsibility lo vote. Thc question  prcsenied is. what special and  unusual consideration is owed  these people who have so massively omitted their basic concern for lhc Local Government?  What variance of thc due process  of the application of the Law do  they merit? Thc answer comes  down loud and clear. None whatsoever,  and  1  voted  in  accord  with that principle. 1 contend that  participatory Democracy demands that people participate  in government and not just use  thc government when special  consideration is sought. 1 would  mention that of 45 persons employed in the Log Dump operations, living in Area "C", 22  exercised their franchise and  voted, for whom the vote was  placed is of no real concern.  1 would respectfully paraphrase  the message from the late J.F.  Kennedy. "Ask not what the  Regional District can do for mc.  but rather what can I do for the  Regional District".
