Array The Sunshine  Published at Gibsons, B.C.  15�� per copy on newsstands  Serving the Sunshine Coast since 1945  July 4,1978  Volume 31. Number 27  Hydro misrepresentation  charged on power line  B.C.Hydro officials have been charged with deliberate make such a mistake," said  misrepresentation by representatives of two Area 'A' groups McNaughton The comments  opposing plans to run twin 500-kV powerlines across the came at a joint meeting between  northern Sechelt Peninsula and Nelson Island. The charges  arose over un alternate route proposed by the Area 'A' A.P.C,  which would route the lines further north with a crossing of  Jervis Inlet at Vancouver Bay and a crossing of Malaspina  Strait near Stillwater.  The route was proposed by A.P.C. member Don McNaughton  at a meeting with Hydro May 24 and flown over by helicopter  June I. According to McNaughton and consulting engineer  Bruce Woodsworth of Middlepoint, the helicopter flight showed  that the Vancouver Bay route could be used, a view confirmed  in the report of Hydro's own geologist Carl Rickcr.  Thc misrepresentation charge arose when  Hydro official  Bruno Gerussi looks in some disbelief at the object of all the action  in the Dogfish Derby on Sunday.

"What   provincial government.  was particularly pleasing," said Smith, "was the family nature  of the participants.   Most of the boats had families which is  what we were alter when wc started the Derby."  Jerry Dulyk wits the winner of the $1,000 first prize.   Dulyk  brought in his fourteen pounds three ounce dogfish in the  morning. Nine years old Andy Solinsky of Gibsons also caught  a fish weighing fourteen pounds three ounces, but took second  place because his was caught later in thc day. Some consolation  for Andy, however, as he won $300 for second place, and also  a $50 voucher for shopping at Super Vaiu as one of the Hidden  Weight prizes.  Tom Richardson won third prize with a thirteen  pounds thirteen ounce catch and the prize of $200.    David  Shirley caught the fourth biggest fish, weighing eleven pounds  two ounces, and won the trophy.  In addition to Andy Solinsky, Hidden Weight prizes went to  Laurie Hicks. Garry Berdahl. Rob Pike, Harry Lubyk, M. Hoop,  Fd Winchar. Tom Jones, Steve Willard, John Duffy, Guy  Redmond. Dave Anderson, Dave Simons, Wayne Nakatami,  and Bill Grant.

Apparently lhc officials in  yictoria arc lyider the impression lhal the June H meeting  held in the United Church  was to select Ihe most favourable site for a marine pub,  rather than to sound out the  residents of the  Lower  Vil  lage   about   the  desirability  of having a marine pub at all.  In a letter addressed to  Alderman Ted Hume, Chairman iif thc Village Planning  Commiitcc. Reid 'asked for  a special meeting to discuss  thc mailer.

Denis Eyrie of Granthams Landing was drowned In saving his  three-year old daughter In an  accident off Soames Point.  An eyewitness to the accident  told the Coast News Sunday  night: "Wc were sitting on our  porch when we saw something  fall out of thc window near thc  front of Ihe boat. We couldn't  tell whether It was garbage or a  very small person. Then we saw  someone Jump out of thc rear of  the boat and realized Ihat It  musl have been a child. We saw  Ihe people In Ihe boat throw  life Jackets lo those in Ihe water.  The father held lhc little girl up  and a rowboat that was nearby  picked her up but thc father wcnl  under before hc could bc saved.  We tried to gel oul lo help in  Ihe search but by lhc time we  rowed oul it was loo laic."  The boat Involved was the  aluminum boat Gambler IV  owned by Gambler Log Sort.  In    another    accident    early  Sunday morning (boat containing four people caughi on fire  near Salmon Rock. All four  were rescued  Victoria ��� Opposition members of the provincial Legislature have attacked the redistribution of the electoral boundaries as a callous effort of the  Social Credit Party to guarantee  its re-election.  "Thc view of the government  is that thc people will fall for  this crude re-drawing of the electoral boundaries." commented  Opposition leader Dave Barrett.  "The way redistribution was  handled shows panic, desperation  and bad judgement by the  Socreds. I am hopeful the public  will show this government that  their democratic rights and their  franchise cannot bc treated  with such contempt."  Thc redistribution bill was  introduced in thc Legislature only  24 hours after the tabling of the  interim report of Judge Lawrence  S.Eckardt, a defeated Social  Credit candidate who was named  a one man royal commission to  look into electoral reform.  Thc bill was sponsored by  Provincial Secretary Grace McCarthy who. as MLA for Vancouver-Little Mountain, appeared to  have much lo gain by thc recommendations of the report which  carefully   added   to  her  riding  Social Credit voting polls from the  Shaughnessy district while  deleting from it NDP-voting polls  in Vancouver's South Slope  district.  New Democratic Party Members   unanimously   condemned  thc    redistriction,    which    will  _Pleaie turn to Page Nine  Region refuses  Arena aid  A request from the Village  of Sechelt presented by Alderman Frode Jorgensen that  thc Regional Board aid the  village with thc deficit for the  Sechelt Ice Arena was turned  down at thc regular board  meeting held on June 24 in  Sechelt.  Jorgensen laid most of the  blame for thc deficit this  year at thc door of thc School  Board of School District #4t)  After eight hours and with the help of a backhoe, a one-ton truck, and a crane,  this boast was finally lifted out of the ditch at the top of the.Qayis.Bay Hill  which, hc said, had booked  blocks of time and then failed  to use or pay for them. Another contributing factor, said  Jorgensen. was the demise of  thc Peninsula Gales Hockey  Club which failed to complete  its projected season.  In the discussion which  followed Jorgensen's request  thc Regional Directors seemed  to feel that a decision on  assistance for thc Sechell  Ice Arena should bc delayed  until after thc results were  known from the region's own  recreational referendum.  The arena's location was  felt to bc a contributing  factor in its difficulties. "A  group of people went ahead  on their own with the arena  and put it where it is. Now  it's experiencing difficulties  they come with their hands  out to the taxpayer."  In other Regional Board  business thc directors heard a  thorough report from Ed  Nicholson about the work of  the Provincial Emergency  Programme committee of  which he is the chairman  along with a representative  Irom each of the villages.  Nicholson presented thc  directors with a copy of thc  report prepared recently  which lists the most likely  sources of emergency trouble  on thc Sunshine Coast.  Billy Ellis told a Regional Board meeting June Q that the Vancouver Bay route was out and even Woodsworth and McNaughton had agreed after the helicopter flight that it was  unusable.  "Both myself and Bruce Barclay understood from Ellis'  remarks that McNaughton and  Woodsworth had given up on the  Vancouver Bay route after seeing  it from the air. and this cut the  ground out from under us.   We  had been prepared to press for  it," said Sakinaw Lake property  .owner Evo Carnelli.  "We could be generous and  say Ellis was honestly mistaken,  but he's in charge of this project  and I don't see how he could  Board may seek  court injunction  The directors of the Sunshine Coast Regional Board were  unanimously irate about the decision taken recently by B.C.  Hydro to spray the section of the power line from Middelpoint  to Rod Webb's Construction company starting this month.  Thc director most closely connected with the area, Director  Joe Harrison of Area 'A', was especially indignant.  "The people of my area are totally opposed to spraying,"  said Harrison, "and I think with good reason." According to  Harrison's information the responsibility for the decision must  bc placed at the door of Hydro Area Manager Eric Hensch.  "Morally the responsibility is his. 1 have a great deal of respect  for Mr. Hensch." said Harrison, "but the responsibility for this  decision is his."  The Area 'A' director made a motion that the Regional Board  seek legal advice about thc feasibility of a court injunction to  prevent thespraying of the power line by Hydro. In seconding  thc motion, thc other area representative involved, Ed Nicholson of Area 'B'. also expressed great concern at Hydro's  decision. "I feel that Eric Hensch is a reasonable man." said  Nicholson, "but I believe that Peter Mosby of Vegetation Management on Hydro's staff is exerting a great deal of pressure.  Wc were told at thc hearing," continued Nicholson, "that we  would have thc costs of mechanical clearing before a spraying  decision was reached. That is due process, lt is a matter of  public record."  Nicholson said that Bayncs Vance of the Herbicide Control  Branch in Victoria had told him while Vance was in town for thc  symposium on herbicides organized by Marta MacKown of  Elphinstone Secondary School recently that the Sunshine Coast  was thc only district in addition to the Okanagan to object strenuously to the use of the chemicals. "1 believe that B.C. Hydro  is anxious not to set a precedent for themselves," said Nicholson, "and that is why they arc going ahead over our protests."  Thc Harrison-Nicholson motion to seek legal advice about a  court injunction was passed unanimously by the directors.  In discussion following the passing of thc motion, director  Harrison said that if the Regional Board were unable to halt the  proposed use of herbicides this summer they should insist on  observers going along to make sure the chemicals were kept  well away from thc creeks. Board Chairman Harry Almond  said that he had investigated the power line between Port  Mellon and Langdale which was the last portion sprayed and  that chemicals had definitely got into the waterways.

Sakinaw Lake  representatives and Regional  Director Joe Harrison July I.  McNaughton said Hydro had  even gone so far as to show the  Vancouver Bay route on a map  with thc notation "rejected due to  avalanches and rockslides" al  an open house meeting in Madeira Park June 17. Woodsworth.  who has himself worked for  Hydro in the past assessing  powerline routes, denied that the  Vancouver Bay route had significant obstacles. "Hydro  geologist Carl Kicker agreed  with me flying over the Percketts  Creek link in particular that there  was very little could be said  against it," Woodsworth said.  The Area 'A' group maintains that if thc line was built  over the Vancouver Bay route  it would be kept away from residential areas, visual exposure  to waterways would be greatly  reduced and three dangerous  aerial crossings would be eliminated, including those over Sechelt  Inlet and Stillwater would follow  a coarse shown on Hydro's Route  Selection Study as being thoroughly feasible.  The crossing of Jervis Inlet is  within Hydro's limits, the submarine link across Malaspina  Strait actually has a better report  than the one preferred by Hydro  at Cope Cockburn, and the lines  would land on Texada Island  much nearer the currently-  favoured point of departure for  Vancouver Island. The major  drawback of the route is that it  is 70% longer between Salmon  Inlet and Malaspina Strait, but  this could bc offset by the length  saved on texada Island.  "Hydro knows that the public  is overwhelmingly opposed to  bringing these lines onto the  Sechell Peninsula, and the onl)  excuse they have heen able io  offer us is that there's nowhere  else for them lo go." said Director Harrison. "Now we have  shown them another place then  can go and il appears they've  brushed our suggestion aside  without giving it the benefit of  serious consideration."  His feelings were echoed by  A.P.C. member Howard While,  who said Hydro Community  Relations Officer John Dawson  had agreed with him June  9 that Hydro could use the  alternate route if the preferred  route across the Sechell Peninsula weren't available. "This  shows clearly how Hydro is  thinking." While said. "Thev  know there are other ways they  can go but the route across the  peninsula looks easier so they  say that's the wa> they must go.  no matter thai il cms through  our hack yard, poses extreme  danger to the flying public and  mars one of B.C.'s lop recreation  spots."  While added lhal public outcry over the projeel wilt he even  greater once construction begins.  "Mosl people ore thinking of  this line as a single hue roughly  the same as Ihe ones lhal run  through the peninsula now. The>  du not rcitli/e ihai Hydro Intends  to build Iwo lines on two rows  of steel lowers which will dwarf  the present lines It is a monstrous thing, h will spoil every  view in this pari of Ihe country.  The right-of-way and substation  and pumping stations will use up  thousands of acres of our land and  the amount of chemical used in  defoliation will he many times  what is used now. Unfortunately,  hy thc lime Ihe reality of all this  dawns on most people it will be  too late."  The group agreed that thc only  hope of forcing Hydro to change  its thinking lies in a "massive,  last-ditch public outcry" directed  at both Hydro and die provincial  governmeni. Plans call lor distribution of printed form letters  and another public meeting in  Pender Harbour.  mmawawaawavawawawaaawawKaaaaawi^amamAmawKaawaawaaa^aaawaaaai^^KKi^^iKaawKawaaaaawawa^  Delivered to EVERY address on the Sunshine Coast every Tuesday!  1^������fja^a^a^MMMMMMMMM���B      wmmmmmmmmmmtmbbm^^MW I I   I ���������������������������������MWWW*".* I        ���t^maaxaat  iMumaaa wmmmmm  July 4,1978.

(*CNA  A dogfish future  What a good idea thc Dogfish Derby  is. Where other fishing derbies wage  war on lhc poor beleagured salmon,  here we have one that raises to respectability the neglected and despised  dogfish with which thc waters teem and  which is second only to salmon in food  value. Thc case with which dogfish can  be caught ensures that everyone who  participates has a chance of success and  of winning the available prizes.  But it is not only as a promotional  idea to attract to thc Sunshine Coast  some much needed tourist revenue that  the Dogfish Derby is a sound idea. The  Coast News was privileged to have considerable conversation with Russ Mohney, author of The Dogfish Cookbook,  during his recent visit here in connection  with the Dogfish Derby and thc man is a  mine of great ideas.  Mohney is a consultant with a firm in  Washington state which is processing  dogfish for markets in Europe primarily,  though potential eager markets are available in the teeming east as well. At  present, he points out, the dogfish is  utilized to an extent of 40% in the processing plants though a plant in California  presently is getting underway to begin  again utilizing thc valuable livers of the  fish which were used during the Second  World War as a prime source of Vitamin  A, which will mean that 60% of the fish  can be utilized. Mohney tells of the  market for the fins which is available in  China for shark fin soup.   He tells of an  area in Washington state where the  residue of dogfish is returned to the  sea where, because of thc extreme  efficiency of the fish as a calcium utilizer,  there is a developing and flourishing  crab fishery because the crabs, feeding  on the dogfish remains, can develop  shells up to nine inches across and can  change shells twice a year.  According to Mohney such a processing plant for dogfish is absolutely  odour free, unlike a cod processing  plant. In terms of income he calculates  such a plant with full time employees  and fishermen supplying it might realize  an income of as much as $3.5 million  a year. Thc visiting author says that  information about such a plant and about  sources of capital to set it up are readily  available from B.C.Fisheries.  So perhaps it is time to widen our  sights a bit here. The sea before us  teems with dogfish. The markets of  Europe and Asia are crying out for it.  Wc are industry and payroll poor here on  thc Sunshine Coast. Perhaps the local  Chambers of Commerce whose initiative  brought us the Dogfish Derby in the  first place hiight feel that the time is  ripe for investigating a processing plant  for the Sunshine Coast. It would seem  with salmon and cod stocks being depleted on both coasts that the dogfish is  about to come into its own in a protein  hungry world. The Sunshine Coast would  seem to bc in a position to avail itself of  the opportunity that lies before us. It is  something we should begin considering.  Hydromania  So Hydro intends to go ahead and  utilize herbicides on the Sunshine Coast  after all. The local programme is scheduled to gct underway this month despite  the virtual unanimity of thc residents of  the area in opposition to herbicide spraying.  According to Hydro officials :he  herbicide programme is the responsibility locally of Area Manager Eric  Hcnsch. Mr. Hcnsch says he shares  the responsibility with the Supervisor  of the Right of Way Maintenance Programme. W.Cootes. According to Mr.  Hcnsch hc has recently provided the  Regional Board with comparative figures which give the cost of clearing the  right by mechanical and hand clearance  and apparently the Power Corporation  finds the costs of such methods of clearance too high.  In neighbouring Washington state,  however, all clearing of power line  right of ways in thc western mountains  is done by hand and mechanical means.  It is generally fell that the environmental  concerns are important enough to warrant thc cost.  It is not merely the importance of not  contaminating drinking water but the  effect of the chemicals on berries and  possible deer grazing is considerable.  In addition any talk of savings by using  chemicals must lake into consideration  from the files of Coast Nsws  ^W^^s 1  5 YEARS AGO  Fire starting early on Saturday  morning completely destroyed the  centre block of Elphinstone Secondary School. Firemen were hampered  by lack of water pressure and rocks in  the water line in their fight to save  the school. Principal D.L. Montgomery was in the forefront of salvaging efforts involving school  records.  At Tuesday's council meeting preceding the school fire, Mayor Wally  Peterson and Alderman Robinson  said that they felt firemen were  pressing too hard for improvements  to the firefighting situation.  10YEARS AGO  The Sunshine Coast Region Board  of Directors is ready to resign If the  garbage impasse cannot be resolved.  The Directors want to get on with  what residents of the area want ���  a garbage collection system.  Persons having three or more  dogs in Gibsons will be regarded as  running a kennel under the new  dog bylaw awaiting final reading by  Gibsons Municipal Council.  15 YEARS AGO  Further consideration was given  to preliminary engineer problems  involved in a proposed sewage system for Gibsons at Tuesday night's  council meeting.  20 YEARS AGO  Not available.  25 YEARS AGO  The last lap of the road to complete  the ferry link with Powell River is  now in the making and a new era is  dawning for the lotus land that was  prosaically named after Lt. Pender of  Her Majesty's survey ships of the  Navy.  30 YEARS AGO  William Youngson, President of  Sechelt Liberal Association, reports  he has received a letter from James  Sinclair, M.P. for this riding, with the  good news that the appropriation for  Sechelt Wharf is $56,000, which is  more than the $18,500 item approved  last year.   thc high unemployment rate locally.  If jobs are not provided the amount of  money spent on welfare and unemployment insurance will far surpass  thc savings realized by using herbicides.  It just docs not seem to make any  sense whatsoever, despite Hydro's  protestations. It bears saying again and  again that this strip of development at  the foot of thc coastal mountains has all  its water come across the power line. The  area proposed for spraying this year is  directly on thc water supply of the Pender  Harbour district.  It has been suggested that the Power  Corporation is most anxious not to set a  precedent here, since besides the Okanagan this is the only area expressing  strong hostility to the use of chemicals.  Thc only recourse that would appear  to be open now would appear to be  through the courts and it is to bc hoped  that thc Regional Board will pursue its  intention to seek a court injunction  against the use of herbicides locally.  It must be brought continually to the  attention of thc provincial government  and B.C.Hydro that they are thc servants  of the people and where the people are  as nearly unanimous in opposition to  anything as they are locally united  against thc use of herbicides, their will  must bc served.  Port Mellon, about 1909. This photo forms the two centre  frames of a panoramic view taken in four sections from a  rise behind the new mill, looking down West Howe Sound.  Alfred Whellwright. pushing into his 90's and still spry, saw  the pulp mill complex on a visit to his daughter and son-in-  law, Lorraine and John Beeser, in the spring of 1978 for the  first time since he had worked on its construction in 1908.  He recalled having travelled on Captain John Cates' private  boat to Seaside Hotel, a Cates enterprise then.  To reach his  job, he would paddle a dugout canoe across the mouth of Rainy  river andwalkthrough a forest to the mill site, in what he refers  to as a "glade". This ghost from a Joseph Conrad past found  the trip by auto a far cry from hisarrivalvia steam launch at the  time of his youth. Only after he had crossed the everlasting  river into Seaside Park did he find his bearings. There,  briefly, he could recapitulate a little slice of life from three  score and ten years into the past.

Peterson  Musings  John Burnside  Slings & Arrows  George Matthews  This paper will appear on  an anniversary of mine.  Twenty-four years ago on  July 4, I954, I stepped out of  a T.C.A. Super-Costellation  aircraft at Dorval Airport  outside Montreal, blinking in  a sunshine of unaccustomed  brightness and wearing a  navy blue wool suit which  was entirely unfashionable  in its heavy double-breasted  bagginess and, like millions  of immigrants before and  after me confronted the new  world for the first time.  I used to have my original  passport before time and  travel and a general ineptitude with regard to personal  belongings separated me from  it. The picture showed a  grim-lipped and surprisingly  chubby-faced young Scotsman  wearing National Health Service glasses with black wire  frames. The young fellow in  the picture was sporting  a short back and sides haircut,  the kind that looked like a  bowl had been placed on his  head, but already a hint of  the hirsute tumult that was to  come was apparent in the erect intransigence of the hair  that had been left.  The expression on the face  can only be described as an  l-shall-overcome expression.  The young man was much too  serious about this whole business of a new life and a new  world to do anything so frivolous as smile. Hc had come  to escape the coalmines and  make good in the land of  opportunity and it was no  matter for smiling apparently.  He had no idea what it was he  would do but it was going to  be something significant,  by God.  No time was wasted. A  hurried poll of friends and  relatives in Montreal led to  the conviction that the young  man's future would be best  assured in thc railways. Further, for rapid advancement in  a railway career shorthand  and typing should he acquired  forthwith. I forget how  these decisions were arrived  at bul the swiftness was extreme. Eight days after  finishing my last class in  Cumnock Academy I went to  work in the headquarters  offices of the Canadian National Railways where I was to  be a junior or mail clerk in a  dusty little office whose  function was to keep records  of everybody alive and dead  who had ever worked for the  CN.R. An Italian called  Giovanni taught mc my duties  and subsequently how to  play touch football. His  father was Italian, his mother  was Spanish, and they lived  in a working class district  called Ville Emard. Visits to  their house made my head  spin since the entire family  spoke English, French, Spanish and Italian with equal and  interchangeable ease, heady  stuff for a lad who had never  heard anything but English  spoken outside a classroom.  The  Staff  Record   Bureau  was  most definitely  a  dead  end street. Most of the people  in there looked like they had  got stuck in a time warp and  through the years they became as dusty and irrelevant  as the files they guarded.  Our young hero was upwardly  mobile, however, and the  September term at an evening  business college saw him  hard at work learning Pitman  shorthand and typing in the  company of one of the younger  clerks in the office, a French-  Canadian called Armand Du-  beau. Our twice a week  sessions were not unpleasant  and in a year and a half we had  the requisite skills and certificates to become stenographers.  In the meantime the ambitious young Scot had  squirmed with dexterity from  the stagnant pond of the Staff  Record Bureau. The biggest  departments with the most  scope for promotion were the  Passenger and the Freight  and three months after starting work I had been hired  by an office of the Passenger  Department and joined the  mainstream.  The accent was very, very  thick in those days. I spoke  broad Scots in a kind of machine gun mumble and everyone asked me to repeat  everything I said two or three  times. "Gee. that sure is  cute," they would say.  "Say it again." I got tired of  being cute and worked conscientiously to lose the accent  with ninety-five percent success.  As an example, when I  was hired for the Passenger  Tariff Bureau the hiring officer was Assistant Manager  George Edwards. He was  a formidable authoritarian  and natty gentleman with a  razor thin moustache.  "What's your name, boy?"  hc demanded as we started  thc interview. My nervousness was considerable. ' 'John  Burrrnsidc, surrr," I stammered. "I beg your pardon."  He frowned. "John Burrrnsidc, surrr," I repeated seeing  thc job vanish in his frown.  Thc frown deepened. "I  beg your pardon," he repeated. I tried again. "Oh, for  God's sake, write it down,"  he said. I did and got the  job despite my incomprehensibility.  The five years in the railways saw me move smoothly  through all the required  manoeuvrings until I was a  private secretary in the head  office of the Freight Department with a 'real future'  promised. I knew intimately  all the executives that I was  supposed to be emulating by  that time and I didn't like what  I saw. I saw ulcers and heart  conditions, asthma and alcoholism. The plush offices  looked to me like a luxurious  Death Row. I wanted out.  If they had let me play with  the trains I think I would never  have left. I am convinced  I could have gone on to be  one of the great  train  dis  patchers in North America  but thc only time I saw the  trains was when 1 used my  free passes to travel ��� twice  to the west coast in five  years, etc.  And so I left the CN.R.  After shorthand and typing  I found I could attend university at night and was  working towards a patchwork  quilt degree at Sir George  Williams University. I took  a year off and financed a  year at Teachers' College  with my Unemployment  Insurance and became a  teacher.  Thc water has flowed inexorably under many bridges  since then arid fifteen years  in the classroom and three  years after that have come and  gone and I have worked in the  east and the north and now  in the west of this vast and  virtually empty country. I  have a daughter born in  Montreal, a son born in  Dawson City in the Yukon,  and a daughter born in the  Crowsnest Pass in the south  west corner of British Columbia.  I have become a Canadian  legally and in my heart. I  am as thoroughly Canadian-  ized as a man can bc who was  not born here to begin with.  I have studied thc history of  this country from French and  English Canadian instructors  and found it fascinating. I  have read thc lives of John  A.Macdonald and Wilfred  Laurier and been delighted  with the scope and nature of  the Canadian experiment.  I don't know what the  future for this country holds  but it suffices to say that if  I had it to do over again I  would come here again.  I don't know where in the  world it would be better to  be. I hope we can all stick  together.  If you are looking for  something to read while sunning yourself on thc beach  this summer I can recommend  a couple of books I've just  finished reading. Daughters  of the Moon, by novelist and  sometime Sunshine Coast  resident Joan Haggerty  has been around a while but  is one of the best things I've  read in some time. My copy is  a Bobbs-Merrill hardcover  edition; .144 pages and sells  for $7.95. The novel was  published in 1971 and while I  haven't seen many copies  around I'm sure the Gibsons  Library has one.  Daughters of the Mmm is  a beautifully written, lyrical  account of the fanciful, mystical and real experiences of  two women whose lives cross  on the Balearic Island of  Formentera. During the 1960s  it became almost a joke  among the poorer travellers  in Europe that thc "in"  thing in the Balearic Islands  was for North American and  English girls to go there for  the express purpose of having a baby. While young men  were travelling to Katmandu  or Afghanistan to perform  that curious rite of "finding  one's self" the girls were  "finding themselves" by  becoming pregnant and producing kids.  There is a far away, nostalgic cast to Haggerty's kaleidoscopic talc and anyone  who was a part of that often  joyful, sometimes tragic  generation of child travellers  of the late 50's and early  60's will warm immediately  to the author's descriptions of  thc contrasts between the  staid and conservative island  cutlure and the brash and  often insensitive young savages from America.

But'  like any book worth reading'  the harder the going the'  higher thc payoff.  While Haggerty's prose is  complex and filled with meta-'  phor, the shortness of the.  chapters and descriptions  gives the book a dynamic  quality. As a sample of her,  prose here is a one para-,  graph chapter from page 45,  a description of the moment  of conception of Anna's  child.  "A seagull rose into the air  from thc roof of the shack;  awakened by the surge of  thc springs dancing a life  rattle. He flew up and the  pull of his departure took the  circled universe of two mating  bodies into longshot, so that  they were no more than a  dark smear on a testing glass.'  As the two parents became  as still as their breathing  would allow, a comet streaked  across thc sky, its head  ablaze, lit up with urgency.  It plowed through all obsta;  clcs, traversing the light years  and thc heavy soil, until the  interior was penetrated, tho  earth opened to receive the  shock, and the bed fell into  thc ground, split by earth'  quake. When the shell  closed, sending comets  back from its completion:  quietly the smear separated  into two pinpoints of darkness  lying side by side on the vytj  sand, surrounded by circles  of sea and stars, deciding,  by intricate partnerships  fast moving as telegraphedt  code, all the details for the-'  pattern of a new human,  being." -i  By Persons Unknown ��� is  an account of the 1973 Demen  ter murder case written byt  Toronto writers Georgei  Jonas and Barbara Amiel;,  Although the early part oft  thc story is a bit too grizzlyi  for my taste, the bizarrei  ii  ���*���*  MM Coast News, July 4,1978  LETTERS  ICBC  Dear Sir:  This letter is going to every  sniall weekly paper in the province, in the hope that some may  find space for it, in their "Letters to the Editor "column.

The ads are clever. The pet  owner is made to feel guilty if  he neglects to buy one.  The sad reality is ��� putting  a flea collar on your pet is to  transform thc poor animal into  a dangerous object...an object  that is now able to affect not  only the health of the pet, but the  health of you. your children, or  anyone who goes near the animal.  The three main chemicals  used in flea collars are:  1. Dichlorvos (Organo Phosphate  also used in Vapnna no pest  strips). This compound hits the  central nervous system and kills  fleas by shortcircuiting the nervous system. It has also been  indicted for causing mutations.  2. Lindane ��� Chlorinated  Hydrocarbon. more powerful than DDT and longer lasting;  capable of causing leukemia  and other serious blood disorders.  3. Tetrachlorvlnphos-Dloxln ���  the most deadly man-made chemical in the world. This compound  is absorbed through intact skin.  It is capable of causing cancer,  mutations, birth defects and  neurological damage. It also  accumulates in fat tissue, making  chronic sniall doses exceedingly  hazardous.  Recently, a woman told mc her  cat died half an hour after she  put a flea collar around its neck.

Surely no one would knowingly  expose his pet to such a possibility when there are other safe  ways to control fleas.  The vacuum cleaner is your  best weapon...pick up the eggs  before they develop.  Comb your pet with a fine  comb and kill the fleas by quickly  dunking the comb into water if  you aren't fast enough to squash  them with your fingernail.  Give your pet Vitamin B (Brewers Yeast) either in tablet or in  powder with his food. Most animals love to eal yeast.  Garlic capsules can be put in  his food. Red cedar shavings  can go in your pet's bed. Try a  few drops of Penny Royal oil  behind the ears and base of  spine. Try a spoonful of cider  vinegar in food or drinking water  for your dog.  Keep in mind that the insidious nature of chemicals makes  it very difficult to trace back the  cause when dire results  mani  fest themselves.

A 22.4% rise in thc school  tax is certainly unacceptable,  but is our school board entirely  to blame? In education as in  many area of public service  thc present provincial government has reduced its financial  contribution, forcing local hoards  and municipalities to pass  a greater share of their costs  onto local ratepayers.  Thc school khoard has in fact  reduced the service being offered lo children of this area,  and still found it necessary lo  raise the local tax.

There was the Rex Theatre  across the street from ihe  Beacon, touted as thc finest  movie-house in the city when  it was first built.

Then there were trie legiti-  latc concerns bill even they  ere mostly of thc shoestring  irt.     Tliis   was   backwater  crritory.  Strange  anachronistic  res-  aurants  that  had  originally  catered to Ihe elite but now  led gladly any customer who  ''ad   the   price,   drilled  into  ���id obscurity.

Its roomy booths were  equipped with velvet curtains  which, once your food was at  hand, could bc closed, effectively isolating you  and your  party from the rest of the cafe  in  a  sniall.   private  cubicle.  Such ii privilege was certain  to bc abused.   (Possibly, that  was   its   intended   function.)  In any event, once we twigged  to   Ihe   place,   we   took   full  advantage.

I recall several brief but  fervent encounters in thc  ephemeral privacy of the  booths. Il was yet another  way we could play like adults  along those uneasy streets.  Wc moved recklessly among  these anomalies of pasl and  present and we moved always  to music, li throbbed endlessly Irom jukeboxes in the Belle  Bar and lhc other cafes we  frequented; throbbed on  in our heads when the loudspeakers went silent. I have  recounted before how we discovered early black rhythm  and blues on that singular  jukebox at the Stratford  Grill. I have also detailed my  personal obsession with thc  songs of Frankie Laine that  began in these years. Aparl  from these areas however, our  listening tastes (if such they  could bc called) encompassed  a pretty catholic spectrum.  Ihcy ranged from certain  banal but inescapable Hit  Parade novelty tunes to the  frenetic discordances and wild  scat vocals of be-bop on thc  avant-garde frontiers uf jazz.  (The only forms of music wc  generally eschewed were  classical and country. These  were considered too square  lo warrant consideration.)  These were the dying days  ol the big hand era and many  ol those huge aggregations  were slill on Ihe road. Tommy  anil Jimmy Dorsey; Duke  Ellington; the late Glen  Miller's group with Tex  Bcneke al thc helm; Count  Basic: Bob Crosby; Harry  James: Benny Goodman and  a host of lesser names barnstormed Ihe country as they  had done since the glory days  of Swing, albeit to diminished  audiences. Vancouver was  considered too out-of-the-  way for many of these groups  but sonic of Ihe morc-adven-  uiresiime made it past Seattle  lo play the town. I was privileged in catch a couple of  them in live performance,  during this period.  One was thc legendary  Wiuulv Herman Third Herd.  featuring such illustious  sidemen as Sum Getz, Zoot  Sims. Bill Harris. Serge  Chaloff and Chubby Jackson.  Il was a rousing night of  great jazz at the old Hastings  Auditorium. Unfortunately,  1 was a bit under the weather  at this function and was also  in the company of a vivacious  young lady who diverted a  good deal of my attention.  Not that the latter circumstance was in any way unfortunate but it prevents my  giving any sort of coherent  report on the proceedings.  I remember the event mostly  as a happy, roaring blur with  inspired solos cutting period  ically through the fog.  Thc second band 1 saw  around this time, was that of  Gene Krupa and here the  converse applies for I recall  this amazing concert with  exceptional clarity. It was  held at the same Hastings  Park location and I attended  it with my home-districl  cronies, Deke. Joker. Dapper  and Bird. We reconnoitereil  at the Belle Bar. early that  late-Spring evening, had a  few beers at one of the skidroad pubs that usually  deigned to serve us and set  out tipsilv by streetcar for the  gig. The place was like an  enormous hlghschool gymnasium with tiers of bleacher-  seats along either wall. We  staked oul a suitable spot and  settled back to catch the  action.  i;  Bv Rae Ellingham  July   5.  month's  Came Snodgress indulges in brainwave experimentation with teacher.

This was the beginning of the B.C. Cultural  Fund which has since annually  dispensed a per capita allowance  to cities and communities on a  graduated scale based on population density. On the Sunshine  Coast, a group of residents  formed an Arts Council centred  in Gibsons, which by 1970 had  evolved to the premises of the  Credit Union Building in Sechelt  where the products of local  artists and era ft people were displayed and sold. Around that  time the Arts Council was in-  corporaled and became a nonprofit society with a registered  constitution and by-laws. In  1974 they rented Whitaker  House in Sechell.  In I97(> an old log bouse was  offered to be removed for restoration as an Art Centre, and  upon serious consideration, the  Arts Council felt that a new log  building of a more innovative  design could be produced at  aboul the same cosl. It was  estimated thai a bare log building  could be erected for approximately $.W,(K)0. and that about  $15,000. could be raised in material and cash donations. A  presentation  was  made  to  thc  Sunshine Coast Recreation  Commission and subsequently  to the Village Council of Sechelt,  requesting land for the proposed  facility. In early 1977, a grant  of $28,500. from Canada Works  was approved and thc Village  agreed to tease, at one dollar  per year, most of thc existing  works yard for the site. Construction began at the corner of  Medusa St. and Trail Bay Ave.,  just prior to Christmas of 1977  with the grant paying wages  only, at the rale of $.Vb() per  hour. An important qualifying  aspccl of this project under  'Job Creations' was the emphasis  on training unskilled employees  to operate a sawmill and learn  log construction. Material donations to the value of around  $10,000. came in thc form of  professional services such as  design. structural analysis,  drawings, white prints, loan of  tools, transits, sawmill, planer  mill, tractor, back-hoe. logs,  shake blocks, gravel, hardware,  expertise and substantial discounts from irades and suppliers.  $.1,500. in cash was raised by  various Arts Council activities.  In May 1978. the Canada Works  Grant terminated and construction stopped.  It is important to understand  that the Arts Council with a  membership of almost 300,  functions with about  40 volun  teers and raises money by  raffles of donated art, flea  markets, garage sales, and a  commission of 20% on the sale  of local arts and crafts through  Whitaker House, these revenues  going toward payment of rent,  The philosophy with respect  to thc new Art Cenlre has been  'pay as you go' as the Arts  Council has been careful not  to incur any debts or incumber-  ances. A sustaining grant of  about $1,900. from the B.C. Cultural Fund is administered as  scholarships, grants to local  artists or groups and cultural  events.  At Ihe prescnl lime, in order  to complete the building, an  application for $18.(MM), one third  of capital cost, is pending from  the Recreational Facilities  Fund in Victoria. Considering  prescnl construction costs,  the new Art Cenlre will be providing ihe community with a  greal deal of value for very little  money. Versatility of use in  Arl shows, performance, workshops and on-going programs will  serve to enhance and up-grade  all aspects of community life  including the economics of the  Sunshine Coasl. Since il can only  be au asset to ihe whole population, more com mini fly Involvement is inevitable as thc  projeel develops.

By John Moore  In the animal kingdom  any change in physique or  instinct is ruthlessly judged  on the basis of efficiency  alone. Defective traits or  behavior patterns are eliminated by the process Charles  Darwin called "natural  selection". Organisms that  make positive changes which  increase or maintain their  efficiency in the face of  changes in the environment  are rewarded with survival.  But thc survival of humankind  depends less on instinct than  on knowledge. Thc key to  human adaptability lies in our  understanding of ourselves  and our environment, our  ability to record and learn  from our mistakes. To survive, human beings require  more than the genetically  inherited instincts and basic  survival skills which animals  learn soon after birth. Even  to simply reach maturity,  man is obliged to learn infinitely more than his animal  counterparts. Man has the  longest childhood, comparatively, of any animal precisely  because of thc enormous  amount of non-instinctual  learning he must do. An  unselfconscious species has  the luxury of being able to  forget its mistakes, but we,  as a species, are obliged to  preserve and study the record  of our failures with more  energy than we devote to  self-congratulation on our  successes.  People arc fond of saying,  "history repeats itself",  but this is passing the buck.  History does not repeat itself; people do. I've been  known to say that if experience is thc best teacher,  human beings are the worst  students. I was exaggerating,  of course, but it does often  seem as though all our technologies, all our "civilization", are less a partially  successful attempt to correct  our i mistakes than a scries  of ingenious stopgaps, jerry-  rigs, and stalling tactis devised so that we may continue  to make thc same mistakes  over and over again while  avoiding the extinction such  obstinacy rightfully deserves.  The crime of the dinosaurs  was an innocent misdemeanor; they grew too big, too  specialized, to adjust to  changes in their environment.  Our crime is our smallness,  our refusal lo put aside our  petty obsessions with ourselves, our clan, our tribe,  our race, our nation; our refusal to recognize the final answer to our own first question  and start thinking and acting  as a species.  Well, human beings may  not be thc best students but  as far as we know at this  time, we're the only kids in  the class. The obligation to  study the world and ourselves  presents us with a problem  which men in thc past might  never      have      anticipated:  the sheer volume of knowledge itself. The volume of  human knowledge increases  with the passage of time, and  it does so at a rate which  exceeds the rate at which  the present becomes the past.  As the seconds tick away into  history, archaeologists uncover more of our remote  past, genetic research investigates the origins of  life itself, and astronomers  probe farther into the physical universe. Thc extent to  which the volume of human  knowledge has increased  can be observed in the increasing specialization of the  sciences and. in fact, all  academic disciplines.  In ancient times, there was  only one subject: Philosophy,  and it embraced literally the  sum of man's knowledge  of the world and himself.  Philosophers studied mathematics, biology, astronomy,  geography, history, rhetoric,  and ethics and it was possible,  even necessary, for a "learned  man" to have a thorough  knowledge of all thc existing  available information on all  of these subjects. Even in  that time, the average man  may have had only the vaguest  awareness or interest in the  more specialized aspects of  this knowledge, but the body  of knowledge itself was smaller, more manageable, and  on the whole more accessible.  Socrates, after all. was a  stone-cutter by trade and  practised philosophy in the  public squares and markets  of Athens. Certainly philosophy was largely the business  of professional intellectuals  also functioned in the service  of kings, generals, and politicians. However, the intellectuals of that time were  not the narrow specialists,  the mental button-pushers of  today. but well-rounded  individuals who, while they  might use their knowledge  of math and physics to help a  general construct scigc engines to capture a city, might  also use Iheir knowledge  of rhetoric and ethics to  argue persuasively in favour  of clemency for thc inhabitants. In ancient China, for  example, it was necessary for  an applicant seeking a post in  the Imperial bureaucracy  to pass an examination which  tested not his ability to  shuffle paper, mumble, and  obey his superiors, but rather  his knowledge of the classics  of Chinese poetry and philosophy and their commentaries. In this way the government was guaranteed  civil servants who arc intelligent and cultured, men  whose energies and interests  extended beyond thc narrow,  dangerous obsession with  political ambition, intrigue,  and acquisition of power  which unfortunately characterizes contemporary aspirants to a public career. The  system may not have completely eliminated avarice,  corruption, or power politics.  but it did produce a government which was stable and  enduring and which outlasted  invasions, coups, and the  passing of Emperors so far  removed from their subjects  as to be irrelevant.  Thc problem we currently  face   is   that   the  volume  of  The problem we currently  face is that the volume of  knowledge has grown so  drastically that each branch  of learning has become a  separate discipline unto  itself wilh further specialized branches of its own.  Where we once had a single  tree wilh a number of branches, we now have a forest  with Incalculable branches  and we are in real danger  of losing sight of the forest  for Ihe irees. Ihe days of  the "renaissance man",  when a single human being  could acquire knowledge from  different branches of learning  and synthesize it into a cultivated, unified whole, are  passing us by. In order to  gain a command of one branch  of knowledge, we are forced  to sacrifice knowledge in  another area. Not only is  the knowledge of our world  and ourselves becoming  less accessible lo thc average  man. but "experts" themselves arc actually becoming  more ignorant in a total  sense, as the volume of knowledge increases. This observation is drawn from the writings of .lose Ortega y Gasset.  a modern Spanish philosopher  who has pointed out the precarious position of our civilization in the face of the  specialization of knowledge.  Under the illusion of progress,  he says, humankind is becoming totally dependent  upon a fragile specialized  culture which may easily  crumble under the rapidly  growing pressure of change  and plunge us into immediate  and complete barbarity. On  that cheerful note. Over and  Out 'til next week.

Can't develop Ihe co-operation to play team  sports.  Can't learn to swim.  Consequently, the facilities and teaching taken  for granted by most people have been largely  closed to the mentally handicapped.

In what was described as the  mosl errant case of trying to  ti\ Ihe election results, three  seats mm held h\ New Democrats  were sirnpU abolished. Those  Included the hvo-nicmber riding  of VancouM'i-Burrard, held by  Rosemary. Brown and Not man  Levi, and the riding of Revel-  stokc-Slocanheldln Bill King.  .lustitlcation tor abolishing  Revelstoke-Slocaii was that Ihe  seat, wilh 10.41U registered  voter,*, was loo small. However,  Iiekardt did not do away with the  riding of Allin. held by Social  Credit, which has 3,158 registered voters,  In another case of alleged  political manipulation, NDP-  voiing polls in the Victoria  Wesl district were removed  from Esquimalt riding and NDP-  voting polls in Saanich were removed from Saanich and the  Islands   riding   in   an   apparent  effort to protect the interests of  Social Credit Ml.A's in those  two ridings.  Ihere was little consistency  in the redistribution measures.  Opposition critics pointed out.  For example, the suburban riding  of Delta. now held hy Social  Credit, was made a two-member  riding apparently in an effort to  insure the election of two Socreds  because of thc high concentration  of Social Credit votes in that  riding, while another suburban  riding. Coquitlam, was divided  into two one-member ridings,  apparently because it went  Social Credit by only a few votes  in the last election and the careful division of (hc riding would  guarantee the election of at  least one Social Credit member in  the next election.  There was no effort to seek  ���representation by population in  the Rckardt report or in the  bill that followed it. For example,  in the previously under-represented City of Vancouver, the  number of seats was actually  cut from 12 to 10.  Critics noted that Bckardt  was appointed to his one-man  commission on January 12,  1978 and announced immediately  that he was leaving on a month-  long vacation outside the province. Premier Bill Benne  defended the holiday in a report  in the Victoria Daily Colonist on  January 19 because "before the  commissioner left on holiday,  the preliminary work was already  in progress and would continue  until Eckardt 's return from  vacation."'  When the report was suddenly  tabled in the house at 2 p.m.  June 20. the Queen's Printer did  not have sufficient time to provide all members of the house  with a copy and only one copy  was provided to the entire  18-member NDP caucus. Nonetheless within 24 hours the government was presumably able to  read, digest and adopt the recommendations and have it drafted  into legislation and printed in  time for all members to receive  a copy hy 2 p.m. the next day.

The matter is slill under  By Ian Corrunce  The idea of diverting a  good fish creek is a controversial one. especially so  if the alteration is necessitated  for the construction of an industrial complex.  Al Twin Creeks in Howe  Sound. L A: K Logging have  completed such a diversion.  On Wednesday of last week  the final barrier was broken  through and both streams  found themselves mixing  with ocean water several  hundred yards along the  shore from their natural outlet.  After much trepidation  over the loss of a local salmon  run, it was a delight to see  the quality and thought that  had been put into conserving  it. The new channel looks to  be more than wide enough lo  handle any water How with  ease. The left hand side of  it. as you face the ocean, is  raised a loot or Iwo higher  than the other half.   This is  for excess water in thc rainy  season. In the main stream  there is a series of steps which  in time will form pools beneath them, ideal for fish.  Parts of the bank have been  planted with conifers and  greenery is already sprouting  in other spols. In a short  lime they should be safe from  erosion.  Once the water had started  (lowing through the diversion  and the level of the original  creeks had dropped sufficiently, three Fisheries men began  scooping out (he coho fry and  cutthroats, Al one point  they were given assistance  from sonic grade seven students.  When the fish were caught  ***************  NDP  Gibsons Harbour Area  Great Canadian and  British Paperbacks  886-7744  :**************>  they were transferred up-  si ream a short way lo a holding net. Upwards of a thousand fish were secured.  A lew days after the operation was completed and the  holding net hail been removed  thc area was slill learning  with fry. none thc worse for  their experience. The diversion which iiad originally  been a mud and gravel  bottom was already washing  itself clean in many spots and  a good rain should continue  the process admirably.  According to the Fisheries,  it will take three lo five  years for (be new route to  establish itself.  I. & K Logging and Feidler  Brothers, the contractor,  should be congratulated on  the job thai has been done.

Both  races were sailed around a  triangular course which began  with a heat lo windward, was  followed by a broad reach, and  was completed by a reach to  thc finishing line.

You will be happy to  know that from the tests that have  been done this year, the poisoned  bird seems to have been an isolated case.  Another bit of good news is  that thc birds have moved back  into the heronry in Howe Sound.  They had disappeared for a while  and we thought that the site  had become defunct.  The Porpoise Bay lot were  checked last week and there are  brought it out.  It already had a   an average of 2.8 voung per nest,  band on it.

They plan to bc back when  the youngsters are up and about  and thev will band them as well.  To date thev have banded  sixty-six; that's about haif the  colony, so their three o'clock  in lhc morning vigils have paid  off.  I went up to watch the operation a week and a half ago, with  Maryanne West, her daughter  Fran, and John Hind Smith. By  this time they had taken down two  of the traps so we didn't have to  go running back and forward from  one to another and could sit  around and tell tall stories.  After drinking the last two  beers in captivity wc checked the  trap out. There was a bird in it,  so Keith tripped thc trap and off  we went lo investigate. The  bird had already been banded  so it was let go. The fact that  birds that have already been  trapped return bears out his  story that they don't get damaged  by this method of trapping.  Trapping these birds is no  different than fishing. We sal  in thc dark peering through  binoculars at the bait tank and  thc birds sat with full beaks on  the other tanks across the bay.

At the western end of Pender  Harbour, the view from the  Landing looks across at the  Francis Peninsula with the  rocky islets upon which the  remains of thc houses which  used to be the summer residences of thc Sulish Indians  can be seen,  Maurice and Pauline Green  arc thc owner-operators of  the Irvine's Landing Marina  Cafe and the transformation  they have wrought in Ihe place  in lhc lasl year and a hall'  is mosl admirable. It hasn't  all been easy-going, Just  before the cafe was scheduled  to open Ihis spring fire broke  oul and only lhc alert work of  thc Pender Harbour Volunteer Fire Department prevented the entire edifice  from being destroyed.  What the fire department  could nol prevent, however,  was thc complete destruction  of all lhc interior renovation  work lhal Maurice and Pauline   had  done  on  thc  cafe  # Granny s #  * dinner  *  MENU:  Sweel <t sour spare ribs  Baby earrois  Shallots  over the winter. Undeterred  by the set-back, the indefatigable Greens went to  work and seven weeks after  thc fire had their cafe shipshape once again. And the  results of their labours arc  mosl pleasing. The little  cafe has never looked more  trim and attractive and with  fascinating historic pictures  of the Landing contributing  much to thc decor.  Nor docs the (.harm of the  place cud wiih the historic  pictures inside or Ihe legend  of Irvine's Landing on the  outside. On my first visit  to the cafe last year I discovered thai Maurice, who  was on duly, made possibly  the finest fish and chips in  North America ���a fael which  I mentioned to him despite  thc counter-fact that hc is an  Englishman. While paying  thc tally I nol iced Ihe splendid  looking pics on the counter.  "Oh whai lovely pies!"  I exclaimed ��� sometimes I do  stuff like lhal. "Docs your  wife make them herself?"  "My wife." said Maurice  drawing himself up lo his  full height which in all truth is  not overly impressive, "is  al the wharf dispensing gasoline. You arc now in my  department." And so il is.  Maurice is thc chef and it is  nol only his fish and chips  which arc beyond reproach.  The menu available is amply  varied and everything that I  have sampled is exquisitely  prepared. In fact, if the  residents of Gibsons and  Sechell would like someplace  different to dine of an evening  ihcy could do much worse  than in motor to ihis pleasant  spot and enjoy the line lure  and I lie pleasant company of  Maurice and Pauline.

Come on get a grip, we're all just people. Most have  families or will have, and it takes money ��� lots of it ���  to keep il all happen,i , Mechanics and car salesmen  have jobs, and their uuik .-, centered around ihis lump of  rusting steel ami cracking plastic with 10.0(H) moving parts  and when a mechanic works on an average of six cars a  day. that's tiO.000 moving parts he is digging through  lo find out which six parts are not working properly.  The onl) thing more difficult lo work on would be the  human body pulled from a burning plane ureck.  Then there is the salesman, the guy or gal. that sold you  Ihe car. Do you rcalK think that person wants to see  miu back with your motor ka pul or your lights not working  nr vour window not rolling up'' No. myself. I'd rather have  you pop in lor an oil and lube and hear (bal lhc car is greal  and it's never missed a beat.  So bear in mind a number of thoughts about cars and  dealers. An estimate in some cases Is just that. It could  be a little more, and if you're lucky, a little less. And. if  your bill is higher than you thought il would be. ASK  WHY! Don't go away thinking you've been ripped off.  When buying a car trust 'your'judgement. Ask a friend  then trust the salesperson has checked thc car out to be  safe and priced according to the local market prices.  Remember used cars are expensive. They cost hard  earned dollars lo maintain so don't kid yourself. If you're  buying a SI.000 car, have $500 handy to fix brakes, or  Ihe iransmission, or some other ghastly thing.

Sincerity subject to proof  sincerity, of the fanatic. There  is the sometimes dangerous  sincerity of the person who  believes that he. along with those  who think as hc does, has a  monopoly in some significant  segment of truth and wisdom:  hc may he intolerant, bigoted,  hating those who disagree  with him and sometimes cruel  toward him. but you've got to  give him credit for complete  sincerity.  Then there is thc dangerous  sincerity of the person who combines initiative-taking. self-  confidence, and gross incompetence. If you have much to do  with such a person you learn that  sincerity can sometimes do more  harm than malice. But many of  us from time to time fall into that  trap ourselves. Wc excuse our  folly and ineptness by assuring  ourselves that we are sincere  anyway. Wc sometimes assume  that our sincerely good intentions  allow us to be incompetent and  foolish in their implementation.  We must not. of course, fall  into the easy cynicism which  assumes that all appearances of  sincerity are deceptive. But we  do need to be aware that sincerity, no matter how genuine it  may bc is not in itself a guarantee of truth, never a substitute  for knowledge, never an excuse  for unnecessary incompetence.  Our sincerity is always subject  to proof.  "Sincerity is always subject  to proof," John F. Kennedy said  in the address he gave at his  inauguration as President of the  U.S.A.  Was Kennedy being just a  little cynical about sincerity?  Or was he being realistic, saying  that we should be suspicious of  declarations of sincerity and  appearances of sincerity?  He had learned, as we all  learn, that sincerity is an ambiguous notion, Ihat an image of  sincerity is not a guarantee of  honesty and integrity. Most of us  have had thc experience of being  conned by slickers who exude  sincerity like cheap after-shave  lotion.  The late Lord Thomson, the  Canadian who became a press  lord in Britain, once said this,  with a twinkle in his eye, "I'm  frank, brutally frank. And when  I'm not frank. I look frank."  What would you make of that?  A man being sincere about his  own occasional insincerity?  As the popular saying has it,  "Whether you mean it or not,  be sincere!"  Some expressions of sincerity  are calculatingly deceptive.  And sincerity also has other popular aberrations. There is the  sincerity,    lhc    quite    genuine  Come cry with me  By Ann Napier  Write Ban .1 c/o Coast News  Dear Ann:  3 am not writing about sex or  intproving my appearance. It  would do no good. My husband is  ail alcoholic. He is untreated as  hi; doesn't believe he is an alcoholic. Our life has taken a bad  turn, lots of bickering and insults  and he has an indifference to the  rest of thc family's needs, and  feelings financial and emotional.  What to do? Will leaving him  make mc feel guilty, or will it  make him straighten up? I  have mulled this over a great  deal of late. Trapped  Dear Trapped:  ���Leaving or staying is up to  the individual. It also depends on  how abusive he is, and how you  are surviving economically. What  effect will it have on the children, etc.? No one can tell you  what to do. When we love someone it is hard to desert. That is  how we look at it. Other illnesses,  such as a broken leg or cancer  would not make us think of  leaving. So an illness of the  mind or emotions must be dealt  with individually. Hopefully  he will see the downward turn  your life has taken and correct it  himself,   before  the  family   is  separated. There are institutions  and groups who help deal with  this situation. Alanon is for the  family of the alcoholic. Sometimes attitudes help. So find out  what yours should be, then proceed before your are too fed up  to cope. Be hopeful.  Dear Ann:  I have a very jealous man.  If I am out of sight hc worries.  It doesn't matter if I am with a  man or woman or if I am visiting  the neighbour. He is always  questioning and doubting me.  He seldoms lets me go anywhere  alone. .This is a strain. Is it  necessary for me to reassure him  and answer all his inquiries,  or should I try to ignore his  questions and restrictions. It  is very wearing when I have no  idea of being unfaithful. Accused  Dear Accused:  Sometimes we get out of balance particularly where love is  concerned. The love object  that is the key to our happiness  seems so desirable that we can  feel that others value and judge  them in the same manner. Also  paranoia manifests itself in this  way. The chemistry of the person  is unbalanced and they have imaginary fears.    The B complex  Carol's  helping  hand  By G.E.Maty Cassin  Words fail me when it  comes to describing Carol  Brukstad. She is quite a  complex character, often  misunderstood. But when  you get to know her. she has  a heart of gold and the animals love her.  When thc ladies of the Fish  Market got started, who was  it that gave a helping hand  but Carol, and she still docs  sometimes. She is always  there ready to help, even thc  smallest and least of God's  creatures. She will nurse a  sick bird back to health, until  it is ready to fly away. The  wild birds would often go  hungry in thc cold weather,  it it were not for Carol feeding  them. She has been doing  this for years now.  I am sure both our eats  owe at least one of their  nine lives to Carol. Tibby  would never have made it  through thc night one time,  but for Carol opening up an  abscess, until we could gct  him to ilk mi ilu next day.  And Simba loo was saved  by Carol's prompt attention.  Only ihe other day a wild  cat bit Simba in the throat  near thc jugular vein, nearly  killing him. Without Carol's  help we might have lost  him. Though Simba still  goes in fear of his life from  this same eat. who seems out  to get him. The S.P.CA.  can do nothing apparently.  Another time, it was Carol  who took pity on a poor  sick stray cat that had climbed  into our house seemingly  to die.  It was Carol who insisted  we get him to thc vet. even  though it was quite late in  thc evening and we had to  take him to Dr. Perry's  house. The doctor tried but  could no nothing to save him.  Carol is a person of many  talents. What is not generally  known 1 think, is her artistic ability. She won a $1(H)  award for a painting in West  Vancouver one time.  Carol also gave a much  admired painting of hers lo  Dr. Swan. She also makes  jewelry and taught lapidary  up al the school for two years.  As tor myself 1 feci I can  never repay Carol for all she  has done for me. Jusl the  other day when 1 cul my loot  on a tin can it was Carol  who got her husband Lance  to drive me up to the clinic  for an anti-Tetanus shot  just as it was closing on  Friday for thc weekend.  It is at times like this that  Carol is invaluable.  I lor one. could not do  without her sometimes.  Even though Carol's profession is nursing, she seems  to carry it over into her  free time as well. She has  in fact dedicated her life to  helping others. She docs this  in spite of being in poor health  herself, witli a sick husband  to take tare of.  They are both very brave-  people.  vitamins are supposed to help.  You can try that or have him gct  a check up. In any case it is an  uncomfortable situation. Deal  with it gently and try by improving his health to improve his  outlook. Il is a tine line between  natural possessivencss and mental illness.  Dear Ann:  If you are one who needs a  face lift and one who does not  want surgery, is there a working  alternative that you know of?  Droopy  Dear Droopy:  Gravity docs get the best of us  in the end. and in other places  too ��� yes , yoga teachers claim  that if you will work intensively  for two and a half years you can  practically be rejuvenated.  I am too lazy to try it myself so  you are on your own but there  is a series of facial exercises  that arc printed in ladies' magazines and I saw on T.V. a lady  being treated, and face lifted,  by accupuncture. So there are  possible alternatives but no  guarantees. Go for it!  Dear Ann:  I'm a pretty generous man but  1 work very hard for my money  and my wife seems to spend it all  and I can't save and plan. We  fight over this a lot. What should  I do?

Lockstead said u marketing  board would be able to guarantee supply to operators outside  ot the major corporations .is well  as to new companies coming into  the industry. Special!) firms,  such as boat-builders, would be  able to count on a supply of  lumber as they are not now, he  said.  Lockstead,, noted that 42%  ol the supply of logs from B.C.  forests are now controlled In  eight major corporations, all but  one ot which is U.S.dominated.  "Ihese corporations set the  price ot logs artificially and ihat  price does nol reflect thu true  market value ot the produce."  Lockstead said. 'When that  price is set ion low, the province  loses stumpage and royalt\ revenue. That loss is reflected in  the standard of governmeni services in other areas, such as  social programmes."  "It is simply not acceptable  for foreign-owned companies to  determine their own prices, outside of the realities ot the marketplace, and for those prices to  be reflected ill the qiuiliiv of  government services received by  the people of the province who  own Ihe forests in the first  place."
