Spiekermann's remarks came in connection with a brief and  lively debate on his motion concerning community involvement  in the selection of administrators. Originally, this motion had  referred only to the selection of thc new Principal for Pender  Harbour Secondary School, but Trustee Spiekermann amended  the motion so that it would pertain to the selection of principals  for any of the District's schools: "moved that communitv  members in School District #46 have a direct imput into the  selection of a school principal." The amended motion was  seconded by Trustee Frizzell.  -flt-^j22>^" ���'.. ^w.-1***  **:  !^]&-  This house on Oldershaw Road burned down last Friday when a communications break-down sent the wrong Fire Department to the  wrong place. See story below.  Confusion delays  firefighters  Through a mix-up in communications, local firefighters  were unable to arrive at the Hanson home on Oldershaw Road  in Roberts Creek In time to save thc building.  In the early hours of Saturday morning, thc Gibsons Fire  Department received a call to all ml a fire at Oldershaw Road.  Oldershaw Road is in the Roberts Creek tire protection area.  By coincidence there Is an Aldersprings Road In the Gibsons  area and because of the similarities In the names, the engine  went there.  When the mistake was realized, the Roberts Creek Department was notified. When they arrived at Oldershaw the fire  had taken hold and it was only possible to ensure that it was  contained in the one building.  Between using the tanker truck as a shuttle, and pond water  via a portable pump, the volunteers worked until dawn and  prevented the fire from spreading.  In the event of a similar situation arising, a map show ing the  different protection areas and EMERGENCY numbers has been  reproduced.  Speaking to his motion,  Trustee Spiekermann said that  if the motion was passed, the  Pender Harbour Community-  would have direct input into  the selection of a principal for  that school, and he felt it to  be proper and beneficial for  communities to be so represented through a democratically elected representative in  the selection of educational  leaders.  Trustee Clayton said that  the trustees themselves were  representatives of the various  communities. Trustee Precesky said that the Community  often feels that the Board is a  thing apart from the community, and Trustee Frizzell felt  that the involvement of as  many as possible in the selection would result in the maximum amount of accountability on the part of the community. Hc did not feel that such a  procedure would constitute  any sort of challenge to his authority.  Trustee Spiekermann was  amazed that thc Board, which  had supported community involvement in thc selection of  the Superintendent, should be  undergoing such a change of  heart when the selection of a  principal was concerned. In  rebuttal, Trustee Clayton responded that if thc Board is  considered a thing apart, the  fault was that of the members  of the Board. Trustee Rottluff  pointed out thc fact that thc  policies pertaining to Community Relations (#1162) and  to the Selection Process for  Administrators (#2211.1) had  been adopted by the Board as  a whole on January 26 of this  year.  Trustee Frizzell temporarily  took over the chair, as Chairman Douglas vacated it to  express his feelings concerning the motion. He felt that  not only would involvement of  a member or group from the  community in the final selection of an administrator be  unnecessary, it would also be  an abrogation of his responsibility as an elected trustee to  shift that responsibility to  someone else. Hc stressed  the fact that he was here  speaking only of the final selection, and that the community is involved in developing  thc criteria which will be used  by thc Board in making its  final decision through meet-  Utgg iuch as the one which  took place at Pender Harbour  on October 12 of this year.  Douglas pointed out the fact  that the responsibility for  short-listing candidates is  vested in the District,Super-  As a public service to avoid repetition of the incident last week, the Coast News has  printed above a map of the Fire Protection Areas and their respective emergency  phone numbers.

Further to John Wood's petition for regulations limiting  refuse turning, the clerk reported that "Contact was  made with the City of Victoria  Fire Prevention Bureau, and  it was affirmed that the City  from Shell Canada Limited  that Council reconsider their  refusal to grant a permit for  construction on their Gibsons  site. Shell's letter stated  "...the scope of the work  covered a load rack spill slab  with a 1000 gallon oily water  separator...exclusively . for  environmental purposes...in  no way enhancing the profitability of our plant. Its sole  purpose is to assist in the e-  limination of the dangers of  a spill." The permit had been  refused on the grounds that  the facility is non-conforming.  Dog control was discussed  again. First over a letter from  Sechelt Village requesting  that the dogcatcher work there  only one half-day a week instead of two for thc reason  that thc dog problem was  much reduced since Elson had  started making his visits, and  besides their budget was overspent by several thousand  dollars. Alderman Trainor  said a definite arrangement  should be made each year with  Sechelt Village, and Alderman Hume moved that Sechelt be asked to meet with  Gibsons to discuss and resolve  the matter of pound use and  dog control. A look al Gibsons  by-law on dog control showed  that there was nothing to prohibit dogs being tethered outside stores "even though the  dogs mess on Ihe sidewalk".  After some discussion about  forming regulations requiring  owners to poop-scoop alter  their dogs on Village streets,  thc Council decided to look  into plugging the loophole in  Ihe bylaw.  Charles Lee addressed thc  council on the urgent need for  all three loeal governments to  consider thc soaring costs of  public works and services. "It  is difficult for elected officials  to say, 'Draw the line,' but  with a limited and at present,  a non-expanding tax base,  some projects will be found  necessary where others will  have to bc postponed," he  said. With hospital expansion, and the up-grading of  the refuse dumps demanding  thc spending of large sums of  tax money, and with cost-  sharing by senior governments being curtailed, Lee  feels thc area cannot afford a  recreation package when its  true   costs   are   determined.  make this decision and thc  only person who has access to  the confidential material required for this process. Concluding by recommending defeat of the motion. Trustee  Douglas said. "I feci, and I am  certain that procedure will  bear mc out. that if wc should  involve, in this final step, people other than elected officials  bound by oath of office, then  confidential information such  as reports from principals,  District Superintendents, and  other solicited information  that we require to make informed decisions would not bc  made as readily available to  us. 1 feel my responsibility to  the electorate is to have before  me as much pertinent material  as is possible in order for mc  to make an informed decision."  In concluding the debate,  Trustee Spiekermann felt that  the suggestion that direct  community involvement represented an abrogation of  School Board responsibility  was going a little too far. He  felt that the proposed involvement intended by his motion  would result in a commitment  on thc part of the parents and  a closer liaison between the  community and the school.  He also said that there were  several precedents in thc  school districts of this Province for the sort of community involvement he was proposing. Trustees Spiekermann, Frizzell, and Prescesky  voted in favour of the ritotion  and Trustees Clayton. Dom-  broski and Rottluff voted  against.' Thc tie was broken  and the motion defeated when  Chairman Douglas cast thc  deciding vote against the motion.  Schools budget  Secretary-Treasurer Roy-  Mills presented the Provisional Budget in thc amount of  $6,656,674. This compares  with $5,905,814. which was  the figure for last year's  provisional budget, and the  Secretary-Treasurer anticipated a slightly higher mill  rale than that of last year. Hc  said that thc budget did not  include funds for library staffing nor for updating thc policy-  manual. Thc budget had been  debated and amended during  a Special Meeting held during  the day of Monday. November  6. Trustees Frizzell and Spiekermann had not been able to  be present at Ihis meeting on  account of work commitments.  and both fell that it was not  unreasonable to go over some  motions at the current meet-  ing. Trustee Spiekermann  moved an amendment to include half funding for a Community School Co-ordinator  for the Bowen Island Community School.the other half lo  he paid through the Community School Association which.  he said, had a brief in preparation. Trustee Frizzell supported this idea, stressing the  fact that His Committee from  Bowen Island had endured for  four years while thc average  life of a committee is eight to  twelve months. Trustee Clayton said that she was not prepared to support the motion  and wished to wait for thc  brief. The motion was defeated by a vote of four to two.  Trustee Spiekermann also  moved an amendment to include funding for library services for Ihe small schools of  thc District (Egmont. Halfmoon Bay. Davis Bay. and  Bowen Island). This evolved  from what Trustee Spiekermann described as a completely reasonable request  from the Liaison Committee of  thc Sechelt Teachers' Association. Trustee Clayton made  a motion to table this matter  until the next business, meeting, and this motion was carried. The Provisional Budget  as a whole was approved u-  nanimouslv.  Health offices to  move to Gibsons  The offices of thc Coasl���Garibaldi Union Board of Health  will be moved to Gibsons from Powell River in two or three  years' time when thc addition lo Gibsons Health Unit building  has been completed. This message came from the Minister of  Health, the Hon. R.H.Melclland, to thc Directors al the recent  meeting in Westview.  Dr. I.aing, Health Director of the Coast-Garibaldi unit still  proposes to establish some officials In Sechelt but is opposed by  thc directors who wish to see thc whole staff under one roof.  Thc Coast-Garlbaldl Health district includes Squamish,  Whistler Mountain, Pemberton, and D'Arcy as well as thc  Sunshine Coast up to and Including Powell River and Lund.  II is hoped, that thc location of thc Health Unit headquarters  will prove that service lo thc entire area.  ���HME'ii.1%  | Delivered to EVERY address on the Sunshine Coast every Tuesday |  mm Coast News, November 14,1978.

Vj   Advertising Department:  Penny Christian  BLUE  RIBBON  AWARD  The Middle East  One of the most dangerous of the  global trouble spots and one of the most  difficult to assess is thc Middle East  where thc beleaguered but powerful  state of Israel faces an array of Arab foes  which, to Israel's good fortune, are  united only in their enmity to Israel  and by very little else. It is apparent that,  despite the world-wide publicity attendant upon the Sadat���Begin personal  diplomacy extravaganza orchestrated by-  President Carter at Camp David, the  Israelis are engaged in a very dangerous  poker game indeed.  lt begins to appear that thc negotiations ut Camp David were primarily an  attempt by thc Israeli Prime Minister  to buy time and raise money. Certainly  his tub-thumping visits to Canada and  the U.S. give the impression of being  for the purpose of preparing a war chest.  The Arab���Israeli conflict is such an  old enmity and the history of the Jewish  people in thc Twentieth Century so  tragic that one hesitates to comment.  Still, any fresh outbreak of Middle Eastern warfare could endanger us all and at  some stage it would seem that we are  entitled to an opinion about what's going  on there.  In thc first place, the situation there  represents an extension of a situation  created after the World War when, to  make amends and solve a problem in  Europe, thc Western powers created a  homeland for the Jewish people at the  expense of the people already living  there. It is the failure of all concerned to  do anything about the displaced Palestinians that has caused the situation to  fester until it seems likely to cause a  major conflagration.  It isJiard not to have sympathy for the  homeless Palestinians who occupied what  they considered their homeland for two  thousand years before Jews from Central  Europe were resettled there. Equally  difficult not to sympathize with the Israelis who have an understandable determination that their people will never  again bc so helpless and unprotected as  they were in Germany in the 1930's.  Three wars have been fought in the  last thirty years and another one is entirely possible and yet this gnawing problem  remains unresolved. Since thc Camp  David talks there has not been much to  indicate that real progress is being  made. And the recent Israeli decision to  make Jerusalem the capital of Israel musl  be seen to be inflammatory. Jerusalem is  a holy city for Moslems and Christians  as well as the Jewish people and the  leader of the Palestinians, Mr. Arafat, is  already calling for a holy war to free the  holy places of the Moslem faith from  Jewish control.  We would content ourselves with just a  few observations. First, why could it not  have been possible to make Jerusalem an  International city administered by the  United Nations, lt might even make an  ideal headquarters for that organization  which, with all its faults, remains a  forum where nations of the world meet to  discuss and to appeal to world opinion  rather than to launch the horrors of  modern industrialized war at each other.  Certainly it is hard to see how with the  Israelis determined to claim it as their  holy city and the Arabs likewise, it can be  anything but a flintstone which might  touch off the entire powder keg of the  Middle East.  And there seems something rigidly  righteous in Prime Minister Begin's  assertion that his people cannot be guilty  of racism because they have suffered so  much from it. Racism is as old as tribalism. One can be certain that ever since  man took to living in groups he comforted himself around the campfires by telling himself and his brethren that as a  group they were generally more worthy  than that other group over the hill in the  other valley and that the groups have  been mistrusting and mistreating each  other periodically ever since. No segment of the human species is immune  from it and if peace is ever going to come  in the Middle East, less rigid minds are  going to have to meet over the problem  than any of the Middle East leaders with  the possible exception of President  Sadat of Egypt, are displaying at the  moment.  What makes it an even more dangerous  poker game for the Israelis is that there  are signs of labour unrest within the  country. Prime Minister Begin may find  generous and enthusiastic support  touring the Jewish centres in North America where the first bomb has yet to  fall, but there may be indications that  his people in Israel are growing tired of ,  the stringencies of a war-based economy.  It begins to appear that the best hope  for peace in thc Middle East is a change  in the government of Israel at the next  elections.  from the files of Coast News  5 YEARS AGO  The School Board provisional budget lor 1974 is $2,719,138 which is  greater by $261,838 than the 1973  budget.

L.R.Peterson  >:*iM**m**  The form was not much to  fill out as government forms  go. It was in fact thc Voter  Registration Form and while  there arc no elections being  held in that portion of the  Sunshine Coasl which is my  present location. I filled it out  in some vague hope that I  might not have to do it again  for the provincial or the federal elections coming up in  the future.  I say I filled it out but  that's only more or less.  Simple as it was it nonetheless posed at least one  question that I could not  answer without locating some  elusive piece of documentation or other. You sec, I  am one of these poor unfortunates that cannot ever find  his driver's licence vvhen  asked lo do so. in fact not  long ago I hadn't seen it  for so long that I despaired of  ever seeing it again and reported it lost only to learn  that it had lapsed some  months before in any case.  Now, if I have trouble  locating something in such  frequent demand as a driver's  licence is these days, you can  imagine how totally inept l  am at finding something less  immediate like a birth certificate, or a passport, or a certificate of naturalization.  I occasionally come across my  birth certificate while leafing  through the passages of a  book and if I do I greet it  like an old acquaintance thai  I have met occasionally over  the years bul wc make no  plans to meet again al any  specified time or place.  My passport is only Iwo  years old bul I have absolutely  no idea where il is. I did find  a passport of mine lhal was  almost twenty years out of  date in a box in a friend's  basement jusl the other  day. however. In ihe case of  thc documentation sought  by the Voters Registration  Form which was proof of  Canadian citizenship, I am  totally at a loss.  I know that somewhere in  my books or belongings  there will be a neal little  card with my picture on it  which states thai I am,  and vvhen I became, a Canadian. I expect to meet il  one day much in ihe same  manner as 1 expect to meet  my birth certificate but if  someone demanded thai 1  produce il within twenty-  four hours or lace deportation  I'm afraid I'd just have to go  back to Scotland.  It didn't always used In  bc thitt way. There was a  period of about len years after  Musings  John Burnside  Slings & Arrows  George Matthews  ���H  I came to Canada during  which, itinerant as 1 was, I  hud all my important papers  within easy reach. 1 kept them  in an important looking  leather-bound folder marked  Important Papers which I  had been given during the  first months in Montreal  by a life insurance agent who  nersuaded me to part with,  4laTf of Iffy tiny salary in thc  name of some false god of  security or other. 1 think I  cancelled the policy and took  my losses after about three  payments but I kept the  folder and conscientiously  kept things in it until somewhere along thc way it  dropped out of my life as  things will sometimes.  Of course, towards the end  of its career thc contents  became highly eccentric  as the wayward anarchy of  my adulthood gradually took  over from the trained, bright  dutifulncss of childhood.  Gradually, thc pattern has  been increasingly towards  ineffectually in dealing with  documents and forms, especially forms.  There was a time when I'd  help people with their income  lax forms and classroom registers. As lime went by I kept  secretive aboul the fact Ihat I  was quick al arithmetic and  had no trouble filling out  forms because I loathed it  so much. And finally thc  loathing has increased to the  point where as soon as 1 see  a governmeni form I am  reduced to a catatonic despondency which is capable of  nothing more complicated  than a signature,  Where once I methodically  and conscientiously and with  a cheerful heart understood  Ihe convoluted questions,  researched the Information  they sought, and filled neatly  in the appropriate boxes,  now I stab wildly into my  memory and my dishevelled  hair and with desperate hysteria race through a series of  incoherent generalizations  and approximations.  It's got so bad that if I  happen to be having a morning cup of tea in the Dogwood  Cafe beside someone who is  filling out a crossword puzzle  I move away because the  exercise reminds me of nothing so much as filling out a  government form.  Unfortunately, this is not  jusl an abstract torment.  There is an apparently real  world out there peopled with  i\ whole army of people who  take nothing more seriously  in all their lives but that  government forms be treated  with all thc reverence and  deference reserved lot-  spiritual matters in healthier  and less warped civilizations.  I am. for example involved in  communications with thc  Lords of thc Income Tax  about the reimbursement of  an overpayment of a repayment of something or other  they claimed happened in  1975 and there are problems  of similar baffling complexity  simmering on their fiscal  stove I have no doubt.  My God. I wouldn't mind  it if 1 were rich, but they arc  already taking more of my  money than I am. Sometimes I  think they should just lake il  all and give me a weekly  allowance and an annual  report and if I wasn't satisfied that it made sense 1  could fire the individual  responsible. Then we'd have a  civil service.  In any case, I fought down  my natural feelings ��� I  believe my reaction towards  forms and the filling of forms  to be completely healthy and  natural no matter what the  'real world' thinks ��� and  filled to the best of my atrophying abilities, the Voter  Registration Card.  So far it is still relatively  simple find il is very important.  One of the great adventures in family living is taking the kids out to dinner. I  don't mean a burger, fries and  shake tit the favourite beanery  but something much more  elegant: 1 mean thc "Yes,  Papa", "Yes, Mama". "Ever  so good of you to take us to  dine, mon pere" of the most  gracious culinary experiences,  en famille.  One of the most important  educational obligations thrust  upon even the most artless  and unsuspecting parents is  thc necessity of teaching one's  offspring itovv to conduct  themselves at table and in  public. So it has been my  parental duty from time to  time to take my girls to dinner with nothing more on my  guileless mind than to show  them the fundamental differences between the fish  knife and the salad fork.  These comestible proceedings  more often than not begin in  the most innocent of circumstances: "What do you mean  you gave the hamburger to  the dog? We don't have a dog.  But really, Andrea, you  mustn't feed stray dogs....  Three pounds you say? Well,  I suppose it must have been  hungry. Now, what did you  say you did with the potatoes?....Yes, but where  exactly did you plant them?....  Oh!   you   don't   remember;  The waking  (7953,1  / wake to sleep, and take my waking slow.

How would all my darling  daughters like to have dipner  at a restaurant tonight?"  Thus the saga begins.  "Now, I want you girls to have  a bath and get dressed but  before you do I'm going to  teach you how to reserve a  table at a restaurant. Just  wait until I dial then listen  very carefully. You'll have to  learn how to do this for yourself one day....Hello, Gustav,  Ihis is Mr. Matthews; I'd  like a table for four at seven,  please....Yes, myself and  three young ladies....No,  these arc the younger ones....

Too busy eh?....Good bye."  I hate Bulgarian food anyway.  Two hours later the little  dears are mean and hungry  but clean and dressed. I  have reservations at a discreet Argentine cafe in thc  Italian section that specializes in Bosnian pcrogics.  Downtown, a convenient  parking place and a last  minute inspection: "Really,  Lesley, you shouldn't bring  your blanket in to the restaurant; and Lindsay, you really look pretty but that blue  sock docs not go well with  the pink one. Well let's sec,  maybe if you wear your blanket over your shoulders.  Lesley, people will think  it's a shawl, and oh by the  way Andrea, try not to bite  thc waiter this time."  I'm sure you would be  surprised at just how charming a Spanish-Portuguese-  Bosnian motif can be, but  while the service left something to bc desired, thc  gaucho-clad wine steward  with the bull fighter's cape  who kept referring to me as  "Tovarich" was an instant  success. My children's attention was caught immediately  by the exotic costumes of the  waiters.  "Dad, why is that man  wearing a dress? "(Have you  ever noticed how children  always speak too loud?)  "Well kids," I whispered,  "That's the way people dress  in Bosnia."  I guess my whisper was not  quite low enough, because  after the owner came over to  inform us that "That man  wearing a dress," was his  wife, what little service there  was definitely deteriorated.

November 14 197R  Editor:  I read with great interest  and admiration the story of  Anderson Creek Salmon  Spawning area. Seems the  people involved arc using  thc Salmon as their example  ���trying over and over again,  against great odds, to achieve  their goals.  Is it time for thc Coast as  a whole to back them? Can  wc achieve a spawning area  by ourselves? I think wc can.  I am sure thc Fisheries  people have had more education in theory, than most of  us, but 1 am sure there arc  many people in this area that  have that most valuable of  assets ��� practical experience  ���called wisdom. Years ago  we had less people and more  salmon, now Fisheries says  they don't want too many  fish. We know that idea is  wrong, there can never bc  too many fish for feeding thc  world; especially if there is a  recession in a few years,  that may be all the protein  we can afford.  How to build ourselves:  first if there is silting, ask  thc lumber companies if they  will allow a buffer zone along  the creek. Many lumbermen  arc fishermen, also and I  am sure they will co-operate.  Next, labour and money ���  have money-raising projects  for thc "Salmon", i.e. cake  sales, etc. A Salmon Barbecue iu three places along  the Coast ��� Pender Harbour area, Secheit area and  Gibsons area. Make the cost  as low as possible, the idea  being to get as many people  involved as possible to help  in the project.  As for labour, I for one  certainly will be happy to  give time to shovel gravel,  etc. Maybe it will work into  happy community work projects, pot luck feeds, etc.  As for design and planning,  docs it have to be as elaborate  as Weaver Creek or can it  bc somewhere in between  that and nature?  How about thc school kids  making paper machc models,  to learn ubout the project and  show at all the events.  I don't like to fight the  government representatives;  if they want to work with us,  great, they are welcome; but  if they don't want to go along  with us we will have to go  alone. We must realize we  do not always need government money to do things.  The resources belong to  Nature and the People, not  government. This is the  second project on the Coast  thc Fisheries have stopped ���  remember the man from Egmont trying to farm the  Salmon.  Wc need many small businesses in this area and a  Salmon Spawning Creek  will help Ihe whole Coast in  thc future.  Thank you, Mrs. Daly,  Mr. Harper and all thc other  people fighting so hard, don't  give up. just lei us know how  wc can help you. "United we  stand, divided we fall".  Barbara Pease,  Selma Park  Recreation referendum  seem inappropriate  Editor:  It would seem to be a most  inappropriate time for the  Regional Board to hold the  Recreation Referendum.  With unemployment, rapidly increasing prices and un  already heavy tax burden we  can very well do without this  additional expense.  This is particularly so when  we realize that we have one  of the finest natural recreational areas in the world.  There is no shortage of  recreational facilities for  young and old if we just gct  out and use them. We have  Slings and arrows(cont'd)  with hunger. After ordering  thc Chateau Neuf du Pape  '57 (which never arrived). 1  was confronted by thc Carte  de Mote and while Bosnian  has never been easy for mc  I managed to point out a lew  dishes I thought would suffice. The borseht arrived with  ice cubes in it (a Bosnian  delicacy, I was told). My  youngest embarrassed  us by shouting to thc waiter  for a straw to drink her  borseht while the other two  ate the ice and left thc rest.  Three-quarters of an hour  and half a bottle of very bad  Bosnian wine later, the main  course arrived; a ragout of  sauteed acorns garnished with  vine leaves (another Bosnian  favourite). After waking thc  children up and urging them  to try it, it was soon discovered that this dish was about  as popular as thc last. It was a  minor triumph however to  discover that all three of the  girls threw their vine leuves  on thc floor with the correct  fork.  Thc one dish that did meet  with some success was thc  mushroom caps stuffed with  pickled rose hips and horseradish. My clever daughters  soon discovered that by  covering them with sugar and  milk they were really quite  tasty. I must say in all honesty  that the deep fried ice cream  ��� WATCHES  FASHION  JEWELRY  HANDMADE  jTURQUOISE JEWELR  & STERLING SILVER  ��� KARAT GOLD JEWELRY  ��� DRESDENS FROM GERMANY  ��� LIMOGES CHINA MINIATURES  ��� CZECHOSLOVAK!

Mercifully, they remained  asleep as I carried them one  by one back to Ihe car and the  last thing any of them said  that night was uttered by  Lindsay as 1 propped her  carefully in the back scat.  She opened one sleepy eye  and said something like,  "Thanks dad. but next time  can we have a pizza?"  All in all it was a perfect  evening even if I did have to  drive twenty miles back to thc  restaurant, wake up the owner  and get him to help me find  Lesley's blanket which was  left under the table. For those  adventurous families who  demand something more  challenging than the mundane trivialities of a Big Mac,  dining out can be an exciting  experience and despite the  indigestion 1 experienced  later that night I went to  sleep secure in the knowledge  that my girls had learned a  thing or two about elegant  cuisine.

Does Sunday feel like a  family day to you, a time when  you'd like to do some things  with your kids and share some  fun? We thought so, too, and  so we've arranged for "Family Time" in the Chatelech  gymnasium every Sunday  from 2:00p.m. until 4:00p.m.  There will be lots of games  going on. How about Volleyball, with a twosome of one  parent a'nd one child twelve  years or over getting together  with other twosomes and  forming teams. Or Badminton, with a big person and a  little person on each side. And  thc tumbling mats will bc oul.  and people will bc around who  teach gymnastics, so what  better time for parents to  help their little ones learn  forward rolls and cartwheels.  There might even be a trampoline to jump on! And  Dodgcball will no doubt keep  both parents and kids running  in circles. Upstairs in the  mezzanine thc pingpong  balls will bc whizzing back and  forth, and for thc quieter  ones there will bc lots of tabic  space so you can bring your  fuvouritc games to play.  Thc cost for "Family Time"  is $1.50 per family ��� and  there must bc at least one  adult in each group. For more  information please call thc  Recreation Service at 885-  5440.

The Fuller's Wife  God knows, the upcoast  camps get lonely. Stranded in  some cheerless, rainy inlet  on the dead edge of winter,  the sense of isolation can hit  you hard sometimes. Especially on Saturday night when  you're sitting in the bunkhouse. reading your girl's  last letter for the twentieth  time and the one from your pal  about thc great parties they've  been having. All of a sudden,  you get a feeling of being  utterly cut-off from thc  juices and joys of life ��� a very  exile of ihe wet darkness  and distance. At this point,  before a guv dissolves into a  jelly of self-pity, it is best to  go watch the pokcrgame or  fradc some lies with that kid  from Saskabush in end bunk.  Guess you could call that  feeling the boondock blues  and they're dogging me  harder than usual at Fanny  Angleworth's camp. The place  is so sniall and remote you'd  swear you were on another  planet sometimes, a six-man  floatcamp stuck way to hellan-  gone up some obscure waterway in the general vicinity of  Knight Inlet. I've been almost  six months from the bright-  lights and 1 suppose I'm well  and truly bushed. Thank  Christ, they'll soon be shutting her down for Christmas.  The outfit's got a couple of  things to distinguish it from  the dozens of other gyppos  that clutter the coast in the  early Fifties. They're using  the smallest A-frame I've ever  seen ��� at least twenty-feet  shorter than the average  w here the sticks meet ��� along  with very light rigging. Also,  the push is a woman.  Fanny Angleworth's one  of the few lady camp-bosses  on the coast and she fits the  part. She's cast in the Tugboat Annie mold ��� fiftyish,  squat and big-breasted with  a deep voice that can outcuss  a man's when the occasion  warrants. Fanny's been  known to don caulkboots and  work on the rigging when  they're shorthanded. But for  all that, she's surprisingly  gentle and kindhearted under  the gruff exterior. You can  see she was a pretty woman in  her youth. She has an adoring  husband called Albert, who's  thin as Jack Sprat, runs the  donkey and seems quite  content to play second-fiddle. Fanny docs the cooking  when she's not out selling  logs or hiring men and there's  little to complain about on  that score. I'm bound to admit  I'll probably hit worse camps  before I'm through. Since I'm  only punking-whistles, I'm  not exactly overworked, ll's  just that the grey monotony of  it all is really getting me  down. The rest of the crew-  is made up of local men who  live year-round in the area and  accept its privations but  I'm homesick as hell. Then,  unexpectedly, I discover a  kindred-soul.  Curiously enough for a  place this small, Fanny is not  the only woman in camp.  There's also June Slater.She's  the wife of Matt Slater, a big  raw-boned taller in his forties.  They've got a couple of preschool kids and live in a small  house at the far end of the  float-complex. Jane's in her  early thirties, a well-built  and quite-pretty woman with  dark hair, who seems to pay  an unusual amount of attention to her appearance for this  unsophisticated neck-of-the-  woods. She's always neatly  dressed and combed and  carefully made-up. Hardly  the typical logger's wife. I  wonder about her in a vaguely-prurient way but it's  all purely academic.  She seems a bit aloof and  nothing passes between us  for the first few weeks beyond  pleasantries and the occasional polite smile. Then one  evening, Fanny brings back  several cases of beer from  Minstrel   and   everyone   in  the layout is invited over for a  drink. Somehow, during the  course of the evening, I  find myself sitting next to  Jane on Fanny's couch.  Matt is arguing board-feet  with Albert over the kitchen-  table and carefully coiffed  Jane is patently bored. "I  guess you're from around here  too, eh?" she asks me in a  somewhat-doleful voice that  several beers have failed to  brighten.  "Not me," I say, "I'm from  the Lower Mainland, Vancouver mostly."  "Oh really!" Her whole  remote demeanor suddenly  falls away like a gossamer  shield. It's as though I've  said some magic word.  "God, do I ever miss the  city," she says in the most  heartfelt tones I've heard for  a long time. And all of a sudden we're jabbering like a  couple of conspirators about  the Embassy Dancchall, the  Palomar Supperclub, all the  downtown joys beyond the  damp horizon. We talk our  way right out of that logging-  camp until thc beer is finished  and the party self-destructs  around midnight.  After that, things are  quite different between Jane  and me. We've got something  in common. A couple of nights  later, she invites me over for  supper and we have another  long talk about Vancouver.  Matt's no city man and, apart  from the odd remark, he says  little. He engrosses himself in  a True Detective magazine  while Jane and I ramble on.  She's also interested in art.  1 show her the few crude  sketches I've made of logging  scenes and we talk about that  too. Matt, although he's  being largely ignored, seems  not to mind in the least. He  seems glad that Jane's  found someone she can talk  The days drag by on that  lowkey operation. The timber's small and the pace of the  logging relaxed. The boom  builds slowly. This place  lacks even the occasional  moments of danger and  excitement that enliven the  working-hours in more production-conscious camps.  I'd be climbing the walls  with boredom and cabinfever  if it weren't for my friendship with Jane. At their invitation, I take to dropping by  whenever the mood strikes  me which is reasonably often.  It's getting on for Christmas  and the weather, although  mild enough, is pretty bleak  and damp. I look forward to  my visits with Jane. Her kids,  a boy and girl, three and five  respectively have gotten over  their initial shyness and  treat me like an adoptive  uncle. It sure beats sitting  around the bunkhouse.  to be continued.,..  Students on  Channel 10  There will be more than the  clock in Coast Cable's Gibsons licence area on Channel  10 on Wednesday.

General Notes:  The Moon and Mercury contact Neptune indicating a  period of confusion, misunderstandings and delayed communications. It's a time of  restlessness, strange moods  and morbid fears. Advice is  to stick to traditional, well-  tried routines. All paper work  should be checked for slips  and errors. We should all be  on the look-out for tricksters  and deceivers.  Babies born this week  will be imaginative, highly  sensitive, idealistic, artistic  and dreamy. Their happiness  will bc linked to all forms  of creative expression. Many  will become famous photographers.  Those of you born around  March 7, June 7, September 9  or  December   8  should   try  to get a firmer grip of reality.  ARIES (March 21-April 19)  Accent is on confusing  short-distance communications. Local visits, phone calls  and messages are deceptive.  Aid poor memory with lists  of items, jobs or priorities.  Recent financial upset should  have taught you an expensive  lesson. Protect hands and  arms against cuts and burns.  TAURUS (April 20-Mav 20)  Focus is on financial misunderstandings with close  associates. Tricky cash transactions must be clearly recorded. Tendency now is to lose  everyday items, keys, wallets,  books and information.  Meanwhile, loved ones arc  ready to forgive your recent  moodiness or bad behavior.  Those born around May 11  should offer sincere apologies.  GEMINI (May 21-June 21)  Those close to you now  find your attitude and actions  bewildering. Personal confusion is linked to mixed-up  messages or ideas. Do you  really mean what you say?  Advice is to postpone any  shared decisions until next  week. Recent lonely spell  affected you more than  vou realize.  CANCER (June 22-July 22)  Advice is to take a break  from recent whirl-wind social  activities. Now's the time to  leave the mad crowd and  withdraw into seclusion,  secret places or favourite  hide-outs. Being alone helps  to analyze worries or hidden  fears. Dreams will be spooky  and should be ignored.  LEO (July 23-Aug.22)  You're now very susceptible to friends' influence.  Advice is to wait a few days  before agreeing to any new.  long-range plans. Current  social contacts should be  checked out for sincerity.  Recent fight to maintain your  honour and position brings  greater respect.  VIRGO (Aug.23-Sept.22)  , Spotlight is on you and your  local reputation. What you say  or how you act in public may  be source of future gossip.  Advice is to state present  position clearly. Any recent  communications from far  away   places   should   yield  For all your Carpets  mr;r\\ ^MW-       T. Sinclair  ���l^VJ1-       885-9327.  surprising results. Those born  around   September   9   must  resist the dishonest way out.  LIBRA (Sept.23-Oct.23)  Looks like you're going  through a period of mental  discord or anguish. Beliefs,  philosophy and ideals are  temporarily botched up.  Secret is to avoid profound  discussions. Stick to well  organized day-to-day routines.  Those close to you must  accept recent financial calamities. Check long-distance  message for accuracy.  SCORPIO (Oct.24-Nov.22)  Accent is on passing money  troubles. Conditions are  muddled so don't touch any  financial documents until  next week. Put aside matters  linked to alimony, inheritance, insurance, taxes and  debts. Pay no attention to  loved one's rebellious behaviour. Forgive and forget.  SAGITTARIUS (Nov.23-  Dcc.21)  Mars, Mercury and Neptune in your sign bring  energy, ideas and inspiration.  It is assumed you have new  projects developing successfully. Meanwhile, prepare  for emotional conflicts with  close associates. Confrontations with women are likely  to be intense.

One of her favourites  is "abracadabra", which  threw me completely for a  loop. I'd always thought the  word was a bit of mumbo-  jumbo, a nonsense "magic-  word" dreamed up by carnival  magicians to approximate the  incantations of sorcerers.  According to thc Pocket  Oxford Dictionary. I was  right, in a sense, but I had it  backwards. "Abracadabra"  has come to mean gibberish,  a nonsense formula, but  originally it was a genuine  incantation used by thc Gnostics and other sects of the  First and Second centuries  A.D. to ward off evil in general and fevers and agues in  particular. According to the  dictionary, it's derived from  Latin and Greek, but it  doesn't give the word-derivations and it sounds to me like  there mighl be a touch of  some Semitic language in  there as well.  So, in for a penny, in for  a pound; just for the hell of  it I looked to sec if "Abracadabra" was listed in my old  encyclopedia. Sure enough.  Ihere it was, accompanied by  quite a detailed little article  which mentioned not only its  use as a charm against  fevers, but also that the word  was inscribed in thc shape of  a triangle on amulets worn for  good luck and protection from  disease. The word first  appears in a Second century  poem by Sammonicus. Intrigued. I checked up on the  Gnostics, from thc same  sources.  According to tradition,  Gnosticism was founded by  Simon Magus, thc infamous  magician denounced by Peter  as an enemy of the faith.  Though they made use of  .ludeo-Christian Scripture,  the Gnostics differed markedly from the Christians in  several important respects.  They were elitist and individualistic, where the Christians  tended to be egalitarian  and communal. The Gnostics  stressed the mastery of  "secret knowledge" and exotic mystical techniques. The  word "gnostic" comes from  lhc Greek "gnosis", meaning  a system of esoteric knowledge. The doctrines of thc  Gnostics are difficult for us  to understand now, since they  distrusted the written word  and such writings as they did  produce are couched in a  convoluted symbolic language  meant only for initiates.  The Gnostics were responsible not only for radically heretical interpretations  of Scripture but also for outright forgeries and falsifications of text. They were  Dualistic, distinguishing  between God the creator and  God thc Supreme Deity,  and between the divine and  historical persons of Christ.  They also insisted on thc existence of a secret tradition,  separate from apostolic tradition, derived from Christ  himself and passed down  mystically by great magicians.  The Gnostics' belief in the  irrelevance of the material,  sensual world led them to  excesses of libertinism  and  asceticisms. The libertines  argued that, since salvation  depended on mystical knowledge rather than on faith  or right conduct, the concept  of "sin" was meaningless.  The ascetics held that since  the material world was a  distracting illusion, acknowledging it or contributing to  it was the only sin. For this  reason they rejected not only  the lusts of thc flesh, but  abjured procreation as well;  an attitude not calculated  to multiply thc number of  their followers by any means.  The muddled mixture of  superstition and philosophy  thai was Gnosticism, though it  declined after thc Second  century, had more than one  beneficial effect. By playing  fast and loose with Scripture  and tradition they forced the  orthodox Christians to system-  ize their own vague dogma  and draw up an official canon  of Scripture. The Gnostics, by  Iheir heretical excesses, in a  sense, created the Church.  They also kept alive, in however degraded a form, thc  ancient philosophical belief  that "knowledge is power"  and many Gnostic doctrines  later surfaced in the Middle Ages as part of the arcane  discipline of Alchemy, the  forerunner of modern experimental science.  These days most of us know  more about Agnosticism than  NDP Bookstore  Fishing history  Sometimes, most of thc  time in fact, it's very difficult  to sec rhyme or reason in the  way thc media dishes publicity  out to books. Three years ago  when Hancock House brought  out the first two volumes of  its resource series on B.C.  industries, there was no end  of notice given Ed Gould's  l��8B'nS> >i disgraceful assemblage of plagiarized misinformation, while thc companion book in the series,  Anne and Joseph Forester's  Fishing, passed virtually  unnoticed into oblivion, even  after placing second to  Ralncoast Chronicles First  Five in the B.C.Book of the  Year awards.  Fishing is still in print and  it's worth taking another look  at. for it is thc nearest thing  we have to a standard work on  the coast's oldest industry.  Neither of the Foresters  are native to the province and  in fact Hancock hired them to  produce their book only a  year out of teaching jobs in  Boulder, Colorado.  Thc result of their very  hurried labours is truly  remarkable, especially when  compared to that of Gould,  a native west-coaster with  family background in the subject of his book. Where the  logging book is thrown together and full of gaffes,  the fishing book  is  reliable.  and comprehensive, giving  thoughtful coverage to the  early-day sealing, whaling,  steam halibut fishing and  Indian fishing as well as the  better known methods, trolling, gillnctting, seining and  dragging. As well there arc  chapters on the role of thc  Japanese, the rise of the  canning industry, the history  of salmon conservation and  the Fisheries Patrol.  Although the authors both  write out of academic backgrounds, their book does not  lack for human interest ���  the number of oldtimers from  all gear categories they  managed to interview is quite  phenomenal. Still the outstanding feature of the book  is its scholarly thoroughness  and there isn't an oldtimc  fisherman on the coast  who knows so much about thc  industry's names, dates and  people that hc wouldn't  find this a very useful book  to have at his elbow.  Thc illustrations are unusually fresh and original for a  Hancock publication, from the  engravings taken out of the  old Edward Lipsett gear  catalogue illustrating thc  endpapers to Fredctte Gill-  netter plans culled from old  issues of Western Fisheries  and thc headshots of well  known fishing personalities  like Ole Skog,  Joe  Babcock  FLOHO  6ENCIE*  FLORON  AGENCIES LTD  REAL ESTATE - INSURANCE  Boa 236 15��9M��rioe Drive Glbtont.

The word "Agnostic" was coined by Huxley  in 1869, primarily to distinguish a kind of rationalist  faith from the philosophies of  atheism and materialism that  were becoming popular in  the 19th century. In the spirit  of scientific rationalism, the  Agnostics held that the kind  of knowledge dreamed of by  the Gnostics, a unified knowledge of all things spiritual  and material, was ultimately  unattainable. Material, scientific knowledge might bc  gained, but knowledge of  spiritual matters was finally  a matter of faith and could  not bc verified in a scientific  sense. The Agnostics had no  desire to debunk religion.  To debunk something you  must be able to refute it  scientifically, and religious  matters are as impervious to  refutation as they are to proof.  Thc Agnostics simply sought  to point out that confirmed  skepticism, like confirmed  belief, is like a victory party  before the race is over. Neither is any substitute for a  healthy curiosity.  Well, there you have it,  Gnostics, Agnostics, and  Abracadabra. I'm an Agnostic  myself, but with all the dreadful bronchial 'flu that's going  around, don't be surprised  if you hear me muttering  "Abracadabra!" from time  to time.  By Fran Berger  "Mime is magic," said the  soft-spoken man, gesturing  gently and expressively with  both face and hands. His love  and enthusiasm for his art  emanated warmly from him.  "It creates a reality out of  nothing but thc body and thc  imagination. And it is the  unspoken universal language."  Then before my eyes his  art spoke for itself, as one by  one he pulled from a small  cupboard masks he had made  himself, and with a nod of the  head, a turn of the wrist, a  sweep of the arm. brought to  life a cast of characters and  emotions which, even though  never seen before, were recognized and implicitly understood. Thc body speaks eloquently. Words are vague.  The magician is Gerardo  Avila, Mexican-born mime  artist who, along with Patricia  Smith, has recently returned  from a year's study of mime in  Poland and other European  countries. Gerardo is totally  engrossed in all aspects of  his art, and has a strong sense  of the history of mime as  well as a deep understanding of the need it fills in our  modern world.  The roots of mime are in the  tradition of the Clown. Court  fools and jesters were the  first mimes, and while clowns,  they were nonetheless considered wise, and were seen  and respected as the counterpart, the balancing opposite,  of the king. Mime, while  incorporating elements of  dance and controlled body-  movement, in its turn influenced these areas, and is  itself the root and basis of  the story-telling form of  classical ballet.  The Clown teaches us to  laugh at ourselves, that it is  alright to be silly and foolish. "Wc satisfy the desire  of the people for the ridiculous so they can accept our  idea of the sublime." is a  Clown quote spoken with  reverence by Gerardo, who  himself began as a down ten  years ago while studying  drama and communications  in Mexico City. But the Clow n  is a dying tradition, as circuses slowly disappear, and  what we of North America  arc being left with in its  place  is  the  stand-up  com-  and Dr. Darby inserted over  pictures of their boats.

Gerardo feels Canadians  sense this lack, and believes  that one of the reasons for  the growing popularity of  mime in Canada is that it  satisfies our desire for the  Clown.  Mime has no rules, needs  no props or equipment;  nothing but awareness,  imagination, and creativity,  lt is the study of the body and  how Ihe body uses space and  than others no one is set aside  as a 'star'. The sketches are  often long dramas father than  short spots, and there is much  audience involvement and  participation ��� which means  the action is experimental  and always innovative.

Its embellishments are particular to the  country which nourishes it.  and Gerardo has noted  marked differences in approaches to it in his travels  throughout the world. In Mexico, there is a strong folklore tradition, and this in-i  fluence translates itself into  mime sketches often using  masks and based on Ihe many  characters and symbols of  Mexican history, ritual, and  myth: animals, corn, Aztec  Indians, ritual dances. European conquerors, etc. In Poland, mime is an equal partner with theatre, and the  stress is on its physical  aspect, such thai il incorporates many acrobatic and  gymnastic movements. Il is  done by groups, in which  every member is considered  equally strong and important, and while some mimes  are    uiidersiundablv    better  In Canada, mime is different yet. It is mime in the  classic French tradition as  perfected by Marcel Marccitu  that is considered acceptable and the only "true"  mime, and all other approaches are felt lo bc experimental.

Mount Elphinstone Cemetery  Community help needed  Most local residents are  aware of the location of  Cemetery Road, but not all  are familiar with the existence of Mount Elphinstone  Cemetery, immediately west  of thc terminus of this road.  This community cemetery,  organized In the Howe Sound  Farmer's Institute back in  I9lb. realized its first burial  in November WIS. It became  the only legal community  cemetery for ihe entire district. Volunteer labour maintained the grounds lor many  years. Witli the advent of a  second cemetery in the mid  1930's, Mount Elphinstone  grounds became suddenly  totally neglected.  By virtue of a special  meeting held in the Anglican  Parish Hall, September 20,  1958, a new slate of board  members was nominated.  Thc Board at its first meeting  nominated F..I.Wyngaert  as president. As time passed  members one by one indicated  a lack of interest in the  continuance as Board member. The role of caretaker  and manager for the past  twenty years, has remained  very much Ihe responsibility  of the elected president.  On one occasion some years  back the Boy Scouts undertook a clean-up job and did  very well. During the past  two years Guy Fisher and  F���I.Wyngaert have conducted  this work.

The first heavy rains of fhe winter caused the creek to find its own bed underneath  the water flow check log, though salmon were still making their way up the creek  past this point when the picture was taken.

Husdon Creek Report  John Hind Smith  Husdon Creek and its  piscatorial inhabitants are  alive and well, thank you very  much. There had been speculation that there were not  going to be any fish there this  year and they certainly are  late compared to last year.  I spent a couple of hours  wandering up the creek bed  lately taking out a few obstructions to make thc gallant  little cohos' task a little  bit easier and watching the  fish, lt never fails to amaze  me how these fish overcome  all thc difficulties pm in their  path by nature in order to  reach their birthplace.  Husdon Creek must seem  like heaven to them after  they have tackled Wilson  Creek wilh its fish ladder and  some pretty formidable  waterfalls. Wilson Creek is in  flood   right   now   after   thc.  Auxiliary  Gibsons Hospital Auxiliary-  will again bc accepting donations in lieu of local Christmas  cards.

The fish I saw looked very  healthy and did not seem to  be too alarmed by my presence. (Gypsy, my dog, stayed  in the car.) They cruised  around right under my feet  and you could clearly see  their beautiful colours.  Wildlife Club members  will be pleased to know that  the logs wc placed across the  creek arc looking great and  there has been no apparent  failure, in fact thc gravel  has now built up behind them  and they are better than when  we placed them.  The lazy red chum or dog  salmon have arrived too and  there were quite a few in the  big pool at thc bottom of the  fish ladder under the shelter  of the trees. Thc water was  quite discoloured and it made  it hard to see them but if you  watched quietly there they  were just cruising around  doing what chum salmon like  doing.  This news is quite encouraging and I guess the old  adage "better late than  never" is quite appropriate  when applied here. Let's  hope that the people carrying guns (I won't call them  hunters) who made salmon  the object of their frustrations in Twin Creek do not  find their way to Wilson  Creek,  Water -fish  Water is highway, byway,  communications medium,  nursery, playground, school,  room, bed, board, drink,  toilet and grave for a fish.

EXCELLENT  55 17  VERY  GOOD  8.5  GOOD ORDINARY  57.5 8.5  POOR  8.5  "Too weird", "strange,  but well done", "awful",  "good, but too heavy":  these are typical of the remarks and comments which  were entered by people who  filled in thc film rating ballots  for thc Kwahtahmoss Film  Society's most recent presentation, Three Women which  was screened on Friday,  November 3. One viewer  who found the film strange,  did not make any mark in  thc ratings, but commented  on a need for time to think  about thc film, while another  commented on thc strange use  of symbols (twins, paintings,  etc.) and went on to say:  "Change occurred in both a  visual and a sublime way.  interesting overall but very  strange. 1 would have to think  first before seeing it again."  Another viewer found the film  "choppy", while another  termed it, "a bit long".  There were seventy-six  people at this film, but  only thirteen took the few  seconds needed to fill in the  ballots which are placed on  the candy counter in the lobby  for audience rating. This may  be the reason for the generally  negative results as shown in  the ratings above. It seems  quite possible that it was  mostly people who reacted  unfavourably to the film who  completed the ballots, for  several people to whom I  spoke subsequently told me  they had had a favourable  reaction to the film but had  not filled in ballots. Writing  about commercial movies in  1977, Bill Beard, a film  instructor at the University of  Alberta, writes: "Three  Women. I gave up trying to  make conventional sense of  this brilliant movie after reading its director Robert Alt-  man's statement that he'd  always wanted to make a  film that could only be understood in purely cinematic  terms. Hc succeeded at  last in Three Women, a  haunting, puzzling, satisfying movie that has the-  obscurely compelling logic of  a dream."  Stephen Scobic, a member  of the Edmonton Film Society's Programme Committee  and an English professor at  the University of Alberta  wrote an essay of over two  thousand words on this film  which appeared in the Society's magazine. I will quote  his opening comment and his  conclusion: "I regard Three  Women as Altman's finest  movie since McCabe and  Mrs. Miller, and as a film so  surpassingly great that it  made everything else that  appeared in 1977 trifling in  comparison,..This account  has done little more than  scratch the surface of an  immensely rich, complex  and multi-layered film. Like  all true masterpieces, it is  both lucid and enigmatic,  endlessly satisfying and  endlessly new." Certainly  the film was provocative,  and I will lend this essay on  it to anyone interested.  Tonight's       presentation,  Outrageous, is of a v'cry  different nature, and I hope  that it might meet the wishes  of the viewer who wrote  (of Three Women). "Good,  but too heavy. Give something  cheerful." In a full-page  salute to Outrageous in the  New York Daily News, Rex  Reed says, "It's a marvellous,  fresh, funny film with heart-  tugging compassion and mosl  definitely the season's major  unheralded surprise."  Charles Champlin of the Los  Angeles Times termed the  film one of the three best  movies he's seen at Cannes  this year (1977). Three  Women was also screened  there at thai lime, bul I don't  know that it was among Mr.  Champlin's other two.  Outrageous is film and  television writer Richard  Brenner's feature-film  directorial debut and it is  based on a story in The  Butterfly Ward by Margaret  Gibson, one of Canada's  most acclaimed new young  writers. The story concerns  the friendship which develops  between a homosexual  hairdresser and a schizophrenic escapee from a mental institution, and the encouragement of the latter as it  aids the hairdresser to achieve  his yearning to become a drag  queen entertainer. In the process Liza, the schizophrenic,  played by Hollis McLaren, is  helped to fight her fantasies  and terrors, and she achieves  out-patient status. Robin, the  hairdresser, achieves the  dazzle he desires as he moves  into a new career as a female  interpreter.  Craig Russell, who plays  the part of Robin, is a real  life female impersonator.  Hc lived for a while with  Mae West. Those who have  seen him either on stage or  on television speak highly of  him as an entertainer. If you  wish to come to see Outrageous and are not already a  Member, arrival not later than  8:45 p.m. is strongly urged  in order to allow time for you  to purchase both your membership card ($1;00) and your  admission ($3.00).

This film  which stars Maria Callas in a  non-singing role, was shown  in a previous series by the  Kwahtahmoss Film Society  about five years ago. Vincent Canby, writing in the  New York Times of October  29, 1971. describes the film  as full of eccentric imagination and real passion. Some  further information on this  fascinating film will be given  in a later column. As  announced in last week's  column, the final presentation for 1978 will bc Akira  Kurosawa's wonderful film  Dcrsu Uzala to be screened  December 12 and it is hoped  to present films from several  other countries in 1979.

B.C. who correctly  identified fhe net shed on Ihe Indian Islands at the entrance lo Pender Harbnnr  International Women  lit Colleen & Mail, Bostwick  llu.' Socialist International  meeting was preceded by ;t  two-day conference of Ihe  International Council of Social Democratic Women, a  women's organization aliil-  iatcd to the S.I. They met to  discuss the general problems  of violence in society.  A series of papers was  presented to lhc delegates  which louched on everything  Irom violence to children to  atomic war. Despite the \asi  differences in kinds of violence, lhc women find a common source. Irene Pctry, the  keynote speaker, explained  violence as "a product of  economic, social, cultural  :iiul political inequalities and  injustices which characterize  our modern societies ami  which affect even more ihe  soeielies in Ihe so-called  'developing countries'."  Violence, she said, "is a  giant wearing velvet gloves."  Economic industrialization  has led lo lhc rise in lhc  standard of living lor sonic,  hut remains haphazard and  injtisl in ils distribution of  benefits. The consequences  of the widening gap between  ihe rich and poor countries,  the constant reality of unemployment, lhc dehumanization  of work, all breed attitudes  of violence,  The rise of \ iolenee is linked  io feelings of frustration,  unfulfillment, insecurity,  and anguish. Violence becomes an everyday reality  and helps perpetuate ihe  inequities between the  strong and ihe weak. The  mood of violence even affects ihe family, leading to  unloved children and battered wives.  Ihe abolition of violence  can only result from a solu-  liou lo hundreds of imporlani  problems and Ihe construc-  lion of civilized soeielies  based on greater sharing and  co-operulion.  One gol Ihe feeling ihat  Ihese brave words belied a  certain doubt among ihe con.  li fence delegates. Some  delegates seemed lo suggesl  lhal solutions to the many  faceted aspects of violence  .-hid lie round .il a personal  level, llu delegates from Ihe  more industrialized countries  "I Europe and Norlll America  ,'oiiecnlrflled on ilu tin nies ol  k mule   oppression,    m msih.  and lhc inequality of women  within soeielies. file dele-  gales from lhc less developed  countries, from lhc areas of  the world where lhc fruits of  technological progress and  electoral democracy were still  a promise rather than a reality  tended to concentrate less on  lhc inequities between males  and females. They pointed to  (he transnational corporations  as lhc greatest obstacle to a  more tranquil world in which  individuals behaved as  equals.  Ihis division between  those concerned with inequality and violence between the  .sexes and Ihose concerned  wilh the broad social institutions that oppress the majority  of people of both sexes has  become a common one at  international meetings of all  kinds. In 1975 thc International Women's Vear conference  in Mexico City saw a similar  split. There the women from  lhc developing world talked  about economic and political  imperialism, while the Canadian and U.S. delegations  talked about job advancement and abortion.  Social democratic women,  however, seemed determined  nol lo let apparent differ,  enecs w uleii into an acrimonious splil. The discussions  lended to seek ;i more general  statement of purpose and  a consensual resolve lo act on  all Ironis ��� to seek amelioration, improvement, hiiniani/a-  tion where ever and whenever  possible.  Il 'was  hard  to avoid  Ihe  feeling thai good intentions  count for a great deal among  social democrats. As if to  underline the difference between hopes and reality, the  delegates to the women's  conference attended an  evening reception at a hotel  on Georgia Street. In order to  reach the reception room  every woman had to run a kind  of gauntlet of street walkers  surrounding the hotel and  propositioning the passers  by, Inside thc women might  comfort themselves that the  world at least has a chance to  eliminate the degrcdation of  women, but outside on the  street, the world's oldest form  of oppression seems to be  thriving.

He felt that  there would be less damage  if people were allowed to  smoke freely and to have ashtrays provided for thc purpose. Surreptitious smoking  resulted in floors being used  instead of ashtrays, hc said.  Thc Board passed a motion  which will change Board  policy so that smoking will be  permitted in schools for community use purposes. The  policy will also bc so ammend-  ed so that teachers smoking in  the school staff rooms will not  be in violation of Board policy,  as this has come to thc attention of the Policy Committee  along with the request to allow  smoking   during   community  use of schools and a request  for a designated smoking  area at Gibsons Alternate  School. Policy chairman Jo-  Anne Rottjuff spoke of thc  need for a good, up-to-date  policy manual, and said Ihat  lhc Board had twice that evening been caughi with ils policies down. She distributed to  the other trustees a summary  of a seminar she attended  September 22-24. entitled  "The Importance of Policy",  which she felt to have been of  great value to her and whici.  she expected to be of great  assistance to the Board in the  reconstruction of its policy  manual.

Our  main reason for staging this  meeting was to help in becoming a vehicle for community dialogue. By presenting  the candidates to thc public we hope we helped people  make wiling decisions. From  iliis meeting we gained experience in dealing with a  panel discussion. This knowledge will be very useful fot  future meetings and forums.  We are also learning to use  videotape equipment. The  videotape of the meeting  will be aired on Channel 10  on Wednesday at hp.m.  Sonic students involved  with the Forum will audio  tape interviews with Seniors  on recycling and conservation during the depression.

More than fifty members of the general public, including parents, students, and  teachers were also present.  Principal of Roberts Creek  Elementary School Bob Wet-  more introduced eleven Grade  Seven Egyptologists from the  school who commented on  slides showing exhibits from  the tomb of King Tutankah-  men which were seen by four  hundred and thirty-nine students from the District on  October 23 and 24. In closing,  Mr. Wetmore, the overall  co-ordinator for this field trip,  paid tribute to the help and  support received from the  Board of School Trustees,  from the Department of Education, from Dorothy Lair of  the museum in Seattle, and  last but not least, from B.C.  Ferries, whose first ferry on  October 23 catered to an extra  439 foot passengers. Trustee  Spiekermann noted that Bowen Island had been included in  this district-wide field trip,  and he said that Principal Barbara Webber had commented  on the commendable behaviour exhibited by this large  number of students. There  was applause as Trustee Spiekermann said that this spoke  highly of the calibre of professional staff working for the  District.  Director of Special Education Ed Nicholson introduced a  number of students taking  part in the Native Environmental Studies programme  which is now underway at  Tsoh-nye, (Deserted Bay) on  Jervis Inlet, the site of an important village of the Sechelt  Indians. He also introduced  Indian Home-School Co-ordinator Teddy Dixon who spoke  of the events leading to the  establishment of thc project,  and Teacher-in-charge, Ron  Fcarn. Also introduced were  assistant teacher Greg Miller  and general factotum Jamie  Dixon, who acts as a teacher's  aide and instructor of Indian  arts and carvings as well as  boat operator and supervisor  of the boys' dormitory. An  impressive selection of slides  was then presented with commentary by Ron Fearn, Greg  Miller and Jamie Dixon, after  which a number of students  showed samples of carvings  upon which they were working. The presentation concluded with a tape giving a  lusty rendition of the N.E.S.  song, whose predominant  theme seemed to be the  difficulty in trying to get  some sleep. Apparently, the  transition from the family  home to dormitory sleeping  accomodation is not a simple  matter for all involved. Local  teacher Faye Birkin, whose  son Geoff is one of the participants in the first semester of  this project, was very much  impressed by the programme,  and Trustee Spiekermann said  that he had been deeply  touched by the presentation  and considered this a highlight in his twelve years as an  educator. A reporter from the  Coast News will be going to  the site next week, and a com-;  prehensive report on this exciting project will appear in  subsequent issues of this  newspaper.  In other School Board business, Bill Forst, sponsor of  the Chatelech Student Council, introduced three students  from the school who gave a  report on a conference they  had attended along with students from Pender Harbour  and Elphinstone Student  Councils, and representatives  from student councils in the  sister districts, Powell River  and Howe Sound. Problems  such as lack of organization,  communication, and ideas in  Student Councils were discussed as well as fund-raising  ideas, and the students said  that they returned from the  conference with lots of ideas.  "Maybe the School Board  should get some of your ideas  for money-raising," quipped  Trustee Clayton.  Kory Regan, Special Assistant to District Superintendent  Denley, spoke of a survey to  determine whether or not the  Board will be required to offer  instruction in French with  English as a second language.  In order to qualify for such a  programme, students would  have to have parents whose  first language is French, and  the   minimum   number   re  quired to institute the programme is ten. A letter is to  bc sent to all parents via the  schools on November 17. A  request for the free use of  school facilities by the Pender  Harbour Community Band  and choir was refused because  the District has carefully developed a policy of making the  facilities available to the public at the lowest possible cost  without the public at large  having to subsidize use of facilities by any particular group  or groups. A bass drum has  been made available to the  group, thus making it unnecessary to transport the one  from Madeira Park Elementary School to the Pender  Harbour School every week.  Recreation Department  brings NFB films  The National Film Board of  Canada has made some mar-  velously entertaining short  movies over the past few years  and Sunshine Coast audiences  will have the opportunity to  enjoy viewing some of the  best of these over the coming  weeks.  A potpourri of shorts covering a wide range of subjects, but all related in some  way to leisure pursuits,  recreation, dance, sports  and health will be presented  in a series of two Film  Evenings by the Recreation  Service, and promise to prove  highly entertaining.  Worthy of special note is a  film to be imported from the  Australian National Film  Board entitled "Leisure",  which, using both animation  and live photography, is  probably the best expression  of the wise use of leisure time  in our modern world that has  been done to date.

Auxiliary  By Marie Trainor  The annual Aloha Luncheon sponsored by Gibsons  Hospital Auxiliary on November 3 was very well attended  in spite of inclement weather.  The buffet table was tastefully decorated for the occasion with purple and white  orchids, Birds of Paradise,  ferns, other colourful plants  and candles. The tables were  also adorned with hurricane  candles which enhanced  the Hawaiian theme. The  flowers for the buffet table  were grown by Jean Longley.  Auxiliary members wore  long colourful dresses which  added to the festivity. Jean  Longley and Ida Leslie co-  convened the luncheon.  President, Joan Rigby,  welcomed the guests at the  door and Margaret Inglis  ushered them to the buffet  table where they were served  by Stella Morrow, Dody  Archer, Win Elrick and Gladys  Davis. Other members assisted in the kitchen, served the  tables and looked after dining  room needs and, of course,  sold tickets. A small craft  table was set up by Phoebe  Blomberg and attracted much  attention.  want to be in Class B. B  here when they go and B  here when they come back.  I remember when I registered. I went up to the desk.  The man in charge was my  milkman. He said: "What's  your name?" I said: "You  know my name." "What's  your name?" he barked, so  I told him, "August Childs."  Hc said, "Arc you an alien?"  I said, "No, 1 feel fine."  He asked mc where I was  born and I said, "Pittsburg".  And then hc said, "When did  you first see the light of  day?" I said, "When we  moved to Philadelphia".  He asked me how old I was  so I told him, "Twenty-  three the first of September".  He said, "You'll be in France  the first of September and  that will be the last of August."  The day 1 went to camp I  guess they didn't think I'd  last long. The first fellow 1  saw wrote on my card ��� Flying Corps(e). I went a little  further and the same fellow  said, "Look what the wind  blew in." I said. "Wind  nothing, the draft's doing  it." On thc second morning  they put these clothes on me.  What an outfit! As soon as  you 're in it you think you can  fight anybody. They have two  sizes ��� too small and too  large. The pants are so tight  I can't sit down and the shoes  are so big 1 turned around  three times and they didn't  move. And what a raincoat  they gave me. It stains the  rain. 1 passed an officer all  dressed up with a belt and  all that stuff. He said, calling  after me, "Didn't you notice  my uniform when you  passed?" I said, "Yes, but  what are you kicking about,  look what they gave me."  Oh, it was so nice. At  five below one morning they  called us out for underwear  inspection. You talk about  scenery. Red flannels, B.V.  D.'s, all kinds. The Union  suit I had on would fit Tony  Galento. The Lieutenant  lined us up and told me to  stand up. I said. "I am sir,  this underwear makes you  think I am sitting down."  He got so mad he put me out  digging a ditch. A little  while later he said, "Don't  throw that dirt up here."  1 said, "Where am I going  to put it?" He said, "Dig  another hole and put it  there."  Three days later we sailed  for France. Marching down  the pier I had more luck.  I had a Sergeant that stuttered and it took him so long  to say "Halt," that twenty-  seven of us marched overboard. They pulled us out and  lined us up on the pier. Then  the Captain came by and said,  "Fall in." "1 have already  beenin,sir,"Isaid.  I was on the boat twelve  days, seasick for twelve days.  Nothing going down, everything coming up. I leaned  over thc railing all the time.  In the middle of one of my  best leans, the Captain rushed  up and said, "What company  are you in?" 1 said, "I'm  all by myself." He asked if  the Brigadier was up yet.  I said, "If I swallowed it,  it's up."  Talk about dumb people.  I said to one of the fellows,  "I guess wc dropped thc  anchor," and hc replied,  "1 knew we'd lose it. It's  been hanging out since we  left New York."  Well, wc landed in France.  Immediately we were sent to  the trenches. After three  nights and Ihe cannons  started to roar and lhc shells  lo pass. I was shaking with  patriotism. I tried to hide  behind a tree but there  weren't enough trees for thc  officers. The Captain came  around and said, "Five o'  clock furlough." Hc said.  "Well, haven't you any red  blood in you?" I said. "Yes,  but I don't want to see it."  Five o'clock wc went over  the top. Ten thousand Germans came out. Thc way they  looked at mc you'd think it  was I who started thc war.  Our Captain yelled, "Fire  at will," but I didn't know  their names. 1 guess thc fellow in thc back of mc thought  1 was Will. Hc fired his gun  and shot me in thc excitement. (Bad place to gct  shot.) On my way to the  hospital, I asked thc fellow  where they were taking me.  He said, "You're going to the  morgue." I said, "There  is some mistake. I'm not  dead." Hc said, "Lie down,  do you want to make a fool  of the doctor?" Finally a  pretty nurse came in and  said, "Move over." Oh,  what am I saying...that goes  in another story....  Dick Fitchett's picture  didn't make the paper  last week. He's running  for Gibsons Alderman.  Amnesty  Although there have been  no prohibited weapons  turned in locally under the  November Restricted Amnesty, there has been some reaction. People arc bringing in  unregistered firearms and  having them certified. The  police urge that hand guns be  registered. There will bc no  complications, unless the weapon has been used in a crime.  z=:  GARDEN BAY MARINE!

A tribute to Ron Breadner  Teaching requirements  By Maryanne West  As one looks back on school  days most of us can remember  one or more teachers who had  a real influence upon us.  When I was in Grade Eight  the classroom door was at thc  back of thc room and Miss  Hunt who taught us both Math  and Literature that year didn't  believe in wasting time. In  fact she started the lesson,  bc it a geometrical theorem  iOr "The Rhyme of the Ancient  Mariner", on the stairs.  By the time she reached the  classroom she was in full  flight and heaven help you if,  when she reached her desk  and began firing questions  around the class, you hadn't  been able to keep up with her  train of thought. Eccentric  she undoubtedly was, but I  wasn't thc only one to whom  she imparted a life-long love  of poetry and even a liking for  mathematics because she  loved her subjects and she  challenged us to extend  ourselves to share that love.  The Christian Science  Monitor which has a regular  weekly section on education  recently carried a three-  volume evaluation of what  makes a good teacher contributed by a parent from Seattle,  a teacher from New York and a  student from Oklahoma.

All of these plus "one overriding requirement ��� a good  teacher needs to have an  immeasurable, an unquenchable love ��� love for life, love  for people, for the subject he  teaches and above all for his  students."  From the student's perspective, not surprisingly,  consistency and fairness was  important. The Senior High  School student didn't mind  whether her teachers were  authoritarian or preferred a  loose democratic approach as  long as they made their  requirements clearly known,  provided the challenge of  new ideas and new problems.  "Students," she said, "tend  to bc disappointed by thc  teacher who does not demand  quality work. Observing this  kind of teacher, they think he  does not believe teaching is  important, therefore they  don't see learning as important."  It's too long to reproduce  in lull but I think the salient  points are universally relevant  and of interest to us too.  "Teachers must have self-  respect for their chosen profession and, of paramount  importance respect for all  humankind," writes the  parent. "Teachers must respect their students as individuals not just by ethnic groupings, compatibility or individual 1.0." She continues to  develop thc reasons that  Twentieth Century life has  become so complex, more  technical, and rapidly changing that, "without a strong  sense of self-worth and self-  respect our children may become increasingly disillusioned and lacking in confidence. Positive feelings of  self-worth are likely to be  constructive while lack of such  feelings may evoke hostility  and aggression-feelings  which seriously limit peoples'  ability to function effectively  as adults." Academic development without attention  given to character development is incomplete education,  she insists. She thinks teachers must be not only knowledgeable but innovative and  flexible providing not only  intellectual perception but  skills  of analysis,  construc  tive thought, the ability to  ask pertinent questions and  develop ideas.  She believes teachers  should "involve parents in  their children's education and  that when practical a teacher  should attempt to reinforce  thc expectations and values  set by thc parents and must  work with parents in a mutually consistent and unified  manner."  Returning to her central  theme that education is more  than just book learning Mrs.  Groves sums up, "A competent teacher is committed to  instilling a sense of self-  respect and respect for others  as well as self-discipline and  responsibility, is enthusiastic about learning, likes teaching and really cares about  kids."  Demonstrating Mrs.  Groves' recognition of thc  importance of "thc training  and skills needed to present  educational material in a  clear, concise and well organized manner," Ellen Mansfield, who teaches English  at thc Junior High level,  has a short list of essentials:  a teacher must "he kmve  ledgeable in his uwn '.eld;  have an ability tc communicate easily, whic'. often means  Come  cry  Ann Napier  Write Box 3, c/o Coast News  Dear Ann:  You hear about the man  who conies home at lunch for  a nooner, others make love  in the .ifternoon.

WE'LL  TUNE IT  AND HAVE  IT READY  TO SING  IN THE SPRING  ~*0ohnson  DL/TBOORD5  By John Hind Smith  It's tough being a friend of  Ron Breadner. Little did 1  know what 1 was letting myself in for when 1 first met  this smooth, ingratiating  individual.  1 should have known right  from the beginning when I  found myself hacking through  fallen trees and digging my  way through snow drifts, all  for the pleasure of paddling  my canoe through a snow  storm in June away back in  some God-forsaken lake.  Instead of having my feet  up in front of a nice warm  fire with a good book, I found  myself being dragged by this  ruthless person out into thc  freezing cold and skiing further and further back into thc  wilderness where no other  self-respecting person would  be found dead. This is the way  to enjoy winter I was told.  Next came thc mud, up to  your knees mud. thick, slippery, gooey mud which  sucked your boots off at the  slightest encouragement and  made carrying a fifty-pound  plus rucksack under and over  windfalls sheer torture.  We found this delightful  place at thc Northernmost  tip of Vancouver Island. I  later discovered that thc  object of our trials and tribulations with the mud. was to  have the pleasure of camping on thc beach and getting  washed   out   of  house   and  home by a tide which had  never heard of King Canute or  Moses or whoever it was that  held back thc Red Sea, and  obviously did not know when  to stop rising. All our incantations and protestations were  in vain.  All last winter I was  dragged screaming back into  the snowy wastes again  and given to understand that  this was belter for me than  sitting at home with my  eyes glued to thc idiot box  with a case of beer to keep me  warm. Who's trying to kid  whom, you might ask. Anyone who believes that kind of  stuff must bc out of his mind!  All this evidence, which  keeps growing, only goes to  prove the truth of my statement at the beginning of this  preamble and it's not all  been told yet. Read on and I'll  tell you more.  Last summer Ihis unscrupulous person dragged a bunch  of innocent youths out to thc  notorious West Coast Trail.  I have no idea of course,  what devious methods he  used to inveigle these youngsters into his nefarious  schemes but perhaps it would  not be wise to go into such  intimate details here. All that  need be said is that we next  found ourselves ploughing  through salal over our heads,  staggering across swaying  suspension bridges, wading  through gushing torrents and  all  this  under  thc   pityless  sun. It was enough to test  the hardiest ones but I think  the climax came when 1 was  press-ganged into running  the rapids on an uncharted  river on a homemade raft  which rapidly disintegrated  as \\"F ploughed our way oul  into the roaring surf of thc  Pacific Ocean. The lasl we saw  of the gallant little raft, or  what remained of her. she was  disappearing over the horizon  headed directly for Japan,  To crown all. somebody got  lhc bright idea of building a  sauna on the beach. Rocks  were heated in a monstrous  lire and everybody gol cooked  to o cherry red and then  quenched in the freezing  ocean. It rained the next day  to show the displeasure of the  Gods who were obviously  upset by seeing all these  scantily clad individuals  racing across Ihe sand to  plunge into the sea.  from the foregoing you can  see that this fellow will slop  at nothing and there is absolutely no way of telling what  he will get into next. There are  rumours of camp-outs in the  snow, this winter, of all things  but I doubt whether even hc  would   stoop   so   low   as   to  suggest that.  Like I say. it's tough being  a friend of Ron Breadner bul  if you do find yourself dragged  inexorably in, you'll find life  is never dull.  P.S.: For those unfortunate  (or maybe they arc fortunate)  people who arc unaware of thc  identity of Ron Breadner. hc  is a teacher at Pender Harbour  High Sftiool and is one ol  those rare individuals who is  willing to spend lime with  his charges oul ni school  hours, In progressive Pender  Harbour they have whai they  call an Outdoor C"luh Qt school.  The members work hard on  all kinds ol projects to earn  themselves enough money io  take them on all kinds ol  Hips al no expense lo the taxpayer.

At the Socialist International  Differences of approach  By Mark and Colleen Bostwick  By thc third day of the  Socialist International conference held in Vancouver  last weekend, thc stack of  position papers is almost a  foot thick on the tables, thc  ashtrays are overflowing, the  voices of the translators are  becoming hoarse. Still the  words spill out. Listeners  begin to nodd off or amuse  themselves watching thc  photographers trip oxer each  other.  It is hard to deny that  solving thc world's problems  will take a lot of talking.  And thc world's Social Democrats, who gathered in Vancouver to talk about Peace  and Development, are not  without verbal staying power.  They share common hopes  even as Ihev speak in  different tongues. The goal  of disarmament, of a new  international economic order,  of a "North-South dialogue"  between the rich and thc poor  countries, and thc solidarity of  democratic forces against  authoritarian governments  and economic greed, arc all  part of the Social Democratic  programme.  Reports who expected an  ideological free-for-all were  disappointed. The mood was  friendly, the power of agreement greater than the voice of  dissension. In order to find  differences one had to listen  very carefully, seeking out  nuances and subtle distinctions. Willy Brandt of Germany had kind words for  Jimmy Carter; the Caribbean  and Chilean delegates were  less kind. The delegate from  an obscure Italian party  said the multinational corporations arc "not bad per se."  while thc representatives  from the Southern African  movements find them to bc  the pillars of apartheid.  Several times the delegates were reminded that  their responsibility was not  to let a river of words flow  into a desert of inaction.  While thc Socialist International has a membership  of millions, and not a few  major world figures who  head important governments  (i.e. West Germany, Great  Britain, Zambia, Jamaica),  they sometimes lack the power  to really change things.  At its most general and  least powerful thc Socialist  International stands for  "peace and development",  for turning swords into plowshares. Peace, the Norwegian  delegate reminded us, must  begin with a reduction of thc  fiZZBaA.

Forty million dollars are poured into military  systems every hoar and  almost a half million scientists  and engineers are working  to perfect the machinery  of death. Something must  bc done about this if war is to  bc avoided.  The difficulty is that the two  powers who must make the  major step toward peace and  The Social Democratic  role is reserved for the plowshare phase, for the transformation of the world economy into a more equitable,  accountable, and humanized  system. The Socialist International parties are in the  forefront of thc promotion of  thc so-called New International Economic Order.  The NIEO is a blueprint for  new patterns of world trade  which will protect jobs in thc  industrialized countries  while providing work and  development in the poor  nations. It is possible to get  as technical as one wishes in  discussing this plan, but when  one gets down to basics it  means food, shelter, work  and dignity for everyone.  The hardest part is finding  ways to ensure that the poor  don't take from the rich.  Thc only real solution is that  both rich and poor countries  grow together in a context of  greater social justice. Up to  this point everything seems  reasonable. No one wants to  deny the starving child milk,  or a Sudbury worker a job.  But reason isn't enough.  There are obstacles, roadblocks, on the way to peace  and development.  We don't live in a Garden  of Eden, and the world is  full of monsters. The biggest  ones are called Multinational  Corporations ��� the three or  four hundred companies who  will soon control most of the  world's production and distribution of goods and services.

All the delegates agree that  these monsters aren't necessarily motivated by the desire to achieve peace and  development. It seems the  fire in the multinational's  bellies is a lust for profits  and growth. But there were  differences of opinion about  the exact nature of these  monsters.  Some delegates think the  MNCs are like dinosaurs ���  big and dumb, clumsy and  rather hard to move. You  wouldn't want to have one  at your dinner table, partly  because they arc big, mostly  because they are clumsy.  Other delegates, especially  those from the developing  countries, seem to think these  monsters resemble saber-  toothed tigers. Hungry,  greedy, dangerous animals  who are not very well-mannered at the best of times,  and terribly dangerous  when cornered.  Those who see dinosaurs  would like to turn the MNCs  into pets, to rope them in,  to put some fences around  them, and teach them better  manners. This approach  involves establishing codes  of conduct on a national,  regional, and even international basis. The dinosaurs  should be helped to make  better decisions ��� more investment for better purposes  in the poor countries, less  insensitivity to the social  needs of developed countries.  And where these monsters  lack a conscience ������ as in  Chile or South Africa ��� they  should be chided severely.  The group of nations,  mostly from Africa, Latin  America and the Caribbean,  who see saber-toothed tigers  have a different approach.  A delegate from Jamaica  traced thc origins of thc  MNCs back to the slave  traders and argued that by  their very nature tigers  impose poverty, exploitation,  and domination on small  countries. Thc MNCs will not  only have to be curbed, but  eventually replaced in part Or  ��� Sunshine Coast        ���  ��� Fitness & Recreation *  ', Service S  I      now has a phone       I  I ffgflfl \ fidgeTed  ���'  slsgjpsg   .,���'  Le' fr -���-     Mr-  ^^^^^^^^^^^B  Hontt^e ;^~'  fl  ^:   >m  mamamMtlir       i*i�� ,.

In thc end thc Socialist  International Conference  took a somewhat ambivalent  position. They passed a  resolution calling for more  controls over the MNCs ���  and encouraged their brothers  and sisters in the world  labour movement to organize  a countervailing force to  the MNCs.  But the delegates were most  warmly receptive to the  Third World groups who are  fighting the MNCs in Southern Africa. They agreed with  Sweden's Olof Palme that the  two pillars of apartheid  in South Africa were used by  MNCs of cheap, unorganized  black labour inside the country  and the continued investment  in such industry from global  corporations which strengthens the Botha regime. In  this quarter of thc world,  neutrality is impossible.  "Between thc exploiters  and thc exploited there is  no middle ground. Action  must bc taken to end a system  which is both evil in itself  and a threat to peace."  Whether this is another  river of words (lowing into a  desert of inaction will depend,  many delegates pointed out.  on the solidarity shown by  peoples, parties and governments in thc industrialized  countries.

UALWOON INN  S miles north ol Sechelt on Hwy 101  Pjjjjj phone for reservations  885-5500  By Pender Harbour & District  Ratepayers Association  Publicity Committee  Provincial Government taking  more powers away from  taxpayers: As an organization set up to watch over the  spending of the local tax dollar thc Ratepayers Association  has had occasion to express  some qualms about the Recreation Package recently put  together under the aegis of  Ihe Regional District, but wc  can take no comfort in the way  it was so peremptorily cut  down by Victoria. To us this  gives new evidence of a very  disturbing trend toward  centralization of municipal  powers at the provincial government level. Our position  has been not so much that  thc taxpayers' dollar should  bc hoarded at all costs as  much as the taxpayer himself  must have the say in how and  where it is spent. Now in  recent months wc have seen  some two million dollars put  into questionable hospital  expansion that will not create  one new bed but which will  create new lounge facilities  for doctors ��� because the  provincial government decided that Ihis would be good  for us, while the swimming  pool, art centre, community  hall, curling rink. etc. arc cut  down because the provincial  government decided 'this  would not be good lor us.  Reasons given for the  government's sinking of the  recreation package ��� that thc  Regional District Review  Commission is coming out  with big changes in the Regional District structure soon ���  certainly do nothing to allay  these apprehensions about thc  disappearing rights of thc  taxpayer. Whatever may bc  said about thc Regional  system, it has given local  people in unorganized territories like Pender Harbour,  Selma Park and Roberts Creek  a degree of control over local  political issues they never  had before. But given the  record of the present government this local power is likely  to bc thc first thing to go  when any changes arc made.  A strange course to take in  the midst of a taxpayers'  revolt.  For the record: There haven't  been any newspaper headlines reporting it and in fact  it's been hard to find any  mention of it in thc local press  whatever, but Area 'A'  Regional Director Joe Harrison's stand on thc Wise  water system controversy has  been completely vindicated by  the Regional Board's actions  in recent weeks. After meeting representatives of the  South Pender Waterworks  the Board has decided to  support Harrison's recommendation that thc Regional  District withdraw from any  plans to aid the East Pender  Bay developer with taxpayers'  money. Thc final position  arrived at is that Wise will  Deserted  Bay report  By Shelly Robinson &  Mike Frankland  Monday morning we spotted a pod of killer whales  travelling up Princess Royal  Reach. It was an entirely  new and fascinating experience for most of us, who can  only associate killer whales  with museums. Jamie Dixon  tells us the whales, dolphins,  and porpoises have been  coming to Deserted Bay for  years. They feed on thc  seals and salmon that are  abundant in the Bay and at  Huna-chin.  Deserted Bay gave us an  excellent opportunity to  observe a salmon run. Thc  Fisheries Department has  given us an incubation box for  salmon. Wc plan to experiment with it and if all goes  well, it will be our first step  toward the goal of improving the salmon run.  Nine students went overnight camping. They hiked  up to the first lake (of three)  behind Deserted Bay. Along  the way the students crossed  a very cold and swift-flowing  river. It was dangerous but  successful. Thc students  enjoyed camping in spite of  the weather.  Over all it was a very progressive week, in thc way of  studies, canoeing, Indian  carvings and Indian paintings.  be left to complete the waterworks system for his subdivision at his own expense.  Whether or not he continues  his petition to be excluded  from the South Pender District will be his own matter  to decide, but there would bc  no advantage in it now that the  Regional District has rejected  plans for becoming involved in  a public water system in  Kleindale. More likely thc  Wise system will become a  part of thc South Pender  system at some time in thc  future ��� as was planned in  the beginning before whoever  it was on the Regional District staff started promoting  a public water system in  Kleindale and got everything  all balled up. Harrison waged  a gutsy campaign against thc  whole plan in thc face of  outright vilification by some of  its supporters and hc deserves  thanks from those landowners  who will be spared S800  a year water bills for water  thev didn't need.

Kiwanis  Village  approval  Approval ot an addition of  thirty units or more to Kiwanis  Village has the Gibsons Kiwanis busy working their  way through the start-up  stages with CMHC, the supervising agent for the provincial  government. This addition  will provide senior citizens  with services in personal  and in itermediate care that  are not at present available  on the Sunshine Coast.  In the past month interviews with CMHC have clarified the financing process,  and the Kiwanis Village has  made application for start-up  funds for thc planning and  design of the facility. Three  architect firms with recent  experience in designing this  type of facility in other districts have been interviewed in  the past three weeks, and the  Vancouver firm of Jones and  Haave has been chosen to  design and supervise the  construction of this care  facility. Jones and Haave  have not only designed intermediate care facilities but  have sat on the boards of  directors of several of these  to learn at first hand how to  provide the environment that  will make living more satisfactory for the seniors living  there.  The Kiwanis Village  Society will work in close  liaison with Susan Frizell,  Long Term Care Administrator for this area, a Ministry  of Health service instituted  in January of this year, and  with Louise Hume, Co-ordinator of Services for Seniors  and Handicapped and also  Co-ordinator for Adult Day  Care.  At present on the Kiwanis  Village site just off North  Road there is a senior citizens apartment dwelling that  can accommodate twenty-  seven persons. The personal  and intermediate care facility  now proposed for the site  will be a separate building  to accommodate thirty or more  persons and provide them'  with a dining room service  and recreational facilities  as well as the health services each individual needs.  Area E  Settlement  Plan  The Settlement Plan  Committee for Areas 'E' and  part of Area 'F' has had its  first meeting.
