Array legislative Library        tiOl  Parliament Buildings,  Victoria, British Columbia  ^     The Sunshine  Published at Gibsons, B.C.  15* per copy on newsstands  Serving the Sunshine Coast since 1945  May 15,1979  Volume 34, Number 20  f  Addresses joint Lions Clubs  International Lions leader here  Harmony Hall in Gibsons was crowded on Monday night,  May 7, by well over a hundred members of the Sunshine Coast's  three Lions Clubs and their wives as the President-Elect of the  International Lions Club Organization, Lloyd Morgan of Lower  Hut in New Zealand was on hand to give local Lions an inspirational address.  Vice-President Morgan, as he presently is, was on the West  Coast of Canada to mark the 25th Anniversary of the Chinatown  Lions Club in Vancouver. Local man Ray Holbrook had made the  acquaintance of the International President-Elect while on a  visit to New Zealand and Australia and when it was learned that  Morgan was planning a visit to British Columbia It took only a  phone call from the President of the Gibsons Lions Gub, Don  Andow, to persuade him to take the time to visit the Sunshine  Coast.  In  his  opening  remarks,  these exchanges we seek nap-  Morgan   acknowledged   the  P'ness and understanding for  greeting of Gibsons  Mayor the young, "said Morgan.

Despite Socred victory  Lockstead easy winner locally  NDP MLA Don Lockstead was swept back into office last  week as the provincial election ended in a narrow victory for the  Social Credit party. Lockstead rolled up 63% of the vote in this  election as opposed to 54% in the 1975 election.  The NDP MLA wot. 37 of the forty-five polls in his far-flung  Mackenzie riding, losing only six and pulling an equal number  of votes to his Socred opponent, Gerry Grey, in two small polls.  On the Sunshine Coast only Irvines Landing and Wilson  Creek went narrowly against the incumbent MLA. A feature of  the voting was the fact that Lockstead won the Sechelt poll for  the first, time in the history of this riding.  In a visit to the Coast News Skelly last weekend, Lock-  office while canvassing with stead said, "I'm very happy  federal NDP candidate Ray  with the show of confidence I  have received in the Mackenzie riding, and particularly  here on the Sunshine Coast."  Lockstead particularly pointed  to the five hundred volunteer  workers who had worked for  him throughout the campaign  as the reason for his victory.  In discussing his immediate  concerns on his return to  Victoria, Lockstead said that a  decision on Ocean Falls must  be made very quickly. He  said that the residents of the  upcoast milltown were pessimistic about the Socred government closing the town  down.  Another of the MLA priorities was the proposed 500  Kv power line to Vancouver  Island. He said that he would  continue to press for a moratorium on the power line,  pending further evaluation of  Vancouver Island's power  needs.  Lockstead also expressed an  urgent interest in improving  transportttlon facilities for the  entire coast and said that serious allegations had been  made just prior to the election  about direct political interference in the working of the  B.C. Ferry Corporation which  Please tun to page nine  'a cousin'. "I am proud to  belong to the Commonwealth  as you do yourselves," said  Morgan,  - The International President-elect stressed the importance of the individual club.  "Club control of the organization must never be lost," he  said. "It is because of the  active role of the individual  clubs that we are the greatest  service club organization in  the world." Morgan stressed  that the Lions success had  been because the approach  had been commercial and aggressive and active while the  goals were fellowship and service.  "We want to reach out with  the hand of friendship to those  less fortunate than ourselves," said Morgan. He  also stressed the Important  role played by Lionesses. "In  just three short years Lionesses have already become the  second matt active ladies'  service club in the world."  Another area of significant interest stressed by the International President-elect was  the area of international youth  exchange sponsored by Lions  International. "Through  Federal NDP candidate Ray Skelly showed good form last Saturday as he pitched  this tomato at the head of the hapless Geoffrey Madoc-Jonee who was in the stock  for being clean-shaven and falling to buy a smoothie button. The punishment was  meted out by the Gibsons Sea Cavalcade Beard-Growing Committee.  In Madeira Park meeting  Skelly slams Fisheries  West Coast Fisheries policy came in for criticism when  federal NDP candidate Ray  Skelly addressed a public  meeting in Pender Harbour  Friday night.  Skelly, brother of Bob  Skelly, elected M.L.A. in  Alberni last week, faces Liberal Jack Pearsall and Conservative Al Lazerte (a Campbell  River lawyer) in next Tuesday's federal election. The  newly-created Comox-Powell  River riding includes Port  Hardy, Campbell River, Courtenay, Ocean Falls, Powell  River, and the Sunshine  Coast.  In response to questioning  by fisherman Sonny Reid,  Ray Skelly called for a Royal  Commission to sort out the  tangled mess of fisheries policy. He suggested that fishing  boundaries were used ss a  bargaining chip by Trudeau to  gain advantage in other economic negotiations.  "How else can you explain  that the Americans used opposite arguments on West and  East Coast boundaries and  ended up winning both?"  asked Skelly. Japanese control, loss of the processing industry, and boat licensing  were issues also raised by  fishermen.  Skelly attacked the "gold-  rush mentality" used in managing fish stocks. Poor Fisheries Department budgets,  direct political interference  by fish companies, the consolidation of the industry in  fewer and fewer hands, the  elimination of the small fishermen, and slow progress in  salmon enhancement were  mentioned by Skelly as problems.  "I don't have all the answers," said Skelly. "It will  take a long time to sort out.  This resource belongs to  our children. Fishermen and  processors have to sit down  and work out a rational  policy."       Hitting the Alaska boundary  negotiations, Skelly said that  international law recognizes  that anadromous fish stocks  such as salmon belong to the  country where they are  spawned, Most of the salmon  Trudeau gave away to the A-  laska Panhandle are spawned  in B.C. rivers that empty into  the Pacific in Alaska. If we  don't get benefit from our  fish, many people want these  rivers used for hydro-electric  dams.  Asked about his chances to  be elected, Skelly said Jack  Pearsall is not campaigning  and is neglecting his responsibility. "I am optimistic, and  if I had my choice, I would  choose this riding over any  other in Canada."  "You're getting to be a politician already I" said one  man, drawing a good laugh.

"What would District 19-A  be like without Lions International?" he asked. "What  would be the position worldwide without the 32,684  Lions Clubs helping others?  "We have built up such a  tremendous fellowship  throughout the world because  each of us thinks the same,"  said Morgan. "There is no  difference between Lions all  over the world because the  Lions feel for their fellow men  all over the world  The international leader  stressed that the greatest  challenge facing Lions international was to let the entire  world reap the rich rewards  that come from serving one's  fellow men. "We are all in  need of love and understanding," said Morgan. "Without  these, what would the world  be worth?"  In stressing the apolitical  nature of Lions International,  Morgan said that the organization dealt on a people-to-  people basis. "We must  reach out and circumvent the  political barriers dividing  mankind," he said.  "Everyone should have the  right to delight in the joy that  comes from helping other people," said Morgan, pointing  out that Lions founder Melvyn  Jones believed that it was  possible for mankind to live  in harmony throughout the  world.  At this point, the Lions  leader found it most appropriate that the meeting he  was addressing wss taking  place in Harmony Hall on  Harmony Lane.  Pointing out that this was  the International Year of the  Child, Morgan suggested a  twinning program of elementary schools with schools  elsewhere in the world. "We  must reach out and endeavour  to do something for the millions of children who have  little hope of happiness in  the world," he said.  "You arc not a small  club," Morgan told the local  Lions in conclusion. "You  are part of a force that will  stand up and be counted. I  hope I have expressed your  ambitions, your dreams, so  that we can together help to  bring harmony to the people  of the world."  After the remarks of the  Lions President-Elect, gifts  were presented to him and his  wife Ngaire including, from  the Gibsons Lions Club a copy  of the book Gibsons Landing  Story by local man Lester  Peterson. Members of the local Lions Clubs signed the  book before the conclusion of  the dinner meeting.  mmwmm*amAmwmw��m-m  See Page 13  for  Hospitality Directory  These Sechelt youngsters are hard at work honing their logging skills for the  Children's Logging Competition in this year's Sechelt Timber Days.  Timber Days Loose ends  ByCarlChriamw  There are many worrisome  things to beleaguer a committee such as ours when  putting together a show like  Sechelt Timber Days. And  one of the most worrisome is  that famous 'loose end.'  "Ladies and Gentlemen I"  the M.C. is demanding of his  audience full attention, trying  to build excitement and drama  into the presentation about  to be made. "We are proud  and happy to be awarding the  coveted prize of Ms Timber  Days "79 to our lovely  Ms Fleganpotcherl" He looks  around for some one to hand  him the tiara and trophy  but no one moves. All look  blankly at one another, then  all eyes focus on the Chairman  He pales, tries to dislodge the  tongue that has suddently  plugged his vocal cords, then  blurts, "Oh, Gosh-Dash- I  forgot to order it I"  I have dreamed of this  moment and woke in a cold  sweat. I'm sure some of my  committee members have said  more than 'Gosh-Dash' at  my early morning calls to  allay this fear I  But there is one 'loose end'  that is impossible to cover.  And that is the weather. All  one can do is speculate and  turn to the soothsayers. In  my case, I have turned to  Canadian   Farm  and   Home  Almanac of 1979. And from  this I have worked out a prognostication for Timber Davs of  May 20 and May 21. Here it is:  May 12 to 15: Storm period.  Hearing beginning in Manitoba, becoming fair to the  Pacific Coast.  May 16 to 19: A variable  time. Fair in the West, then  unsettled.  May 20 to 23: Clearing  timet Showers in Manitoba,  then clearing to Pacific  Coast.  May 24 to 27: Storms  commencing in B.C. and  Alberta. These storms will  be the result of Manitoba  sending all her empty clouds  back out to B.C. for refills  after dumping their showers  on her parched lands. It takes  the usual three days of storms  to load up out here before they  begin to kick up a fuss and  head back to the prairies.  And by that time, they'll  be so loaded they won't have  room for it all on the prairies.  The Almanac forecasts  severe storms in Saskatchewan and Manitoba, continuing on into Ontario,  Quebec and Newfoundland.  So if you have friends on  the prairies and in the East,  send them a copy of this forecast and invite them out to  good old B.C. for two beautiful  days of celebrating Sechelt  Timber Days. And we'll  promise them a good time I  For the fishing derby sponsored by thc Sunshine Coast  Credit Union on May 12 and  19, this forecast may be a  guide. The almanac also gives  us a fishing calendar which  shows that evening fishing  will be better lhan morning on  May 12. As the weigh-in is  from 2.00 to 3.00 p.m. the  catch may not be as good. But  if tides and local conditions  are right, who really knows?  That's fishin'l A change of  moon happens about then - a  brand new one and the moon  seems to affect fishing. So  don't give up hope for the  12th.  Belter news on the 19th!  Morning fishing is thc best.  And if Ihe weather is on schedule, the 16th to the 19th is  shown as variable but fair in  thc West. This is of course,  subject tu local conditions so  wc must watch the winds.  And speaking of winds, I  heard from an angler the other  day, who said to a stranger  who had landed in an open  field near a stream he was  fishing, "Must take a mess o'  guts to come down in a parachute on such a windy day  To which the stranger  replied, "I didn't come down  in a parachute, I went up in a  tent I"  We'll have to watch our  little girls changing tent in  Hackett Park it it's blowing on  T.D.Day.  | Delivered to EVERY address on the Sunshine Coast every Tuesday Coast News, May 15,1979.  mm i>v  A LOCALLY OWNED NEWSPAPER  Published at Gibsons, B.C. every Tuesday,  by Glassford Press Ltd.

Premier  Bill Bennett was returned to power,  sure enough, but the election that he  needn't have called saw his lead shrink  from eighteen seats over the opposition NDP to just five, and this  despite the fact that three NDP seats  were wiped out by redistribution. Bennett  is secure enough for another term but  he can't feel wholly satisfied with the  result. He has successfully done what he  set out to do when he entered politics,  that is to unite the anti-NDP vote behind  a Socred banner but it has even so been  barely enough for the 'free enterprise'  government of the Socreds to hold power.  Dave Barrett, though he has in the last  two elections raised the popular vote for  the NDP party to 46% which is an all-  time high in British Columbia, is nonetheless a two-time loser and his future  as leader of the party may, though not  necessarily, be in doubt. Both Tothill  of the Liberals and Stephens of the Conservative party saw their parties wiped  out in this provincial election and there  can be no joy there.  While the political leaders all have  some wounds to lick, the people of British  Columbia may have been well served,  however. There is a government with a  clear enough mandate to govern but,  essential in our democratic system, there  is also a strong and experienced opposition which should keep the government  responsive to the people and on its  legislative toes. Further, it is the opinion  here that it is well for democracy when  the two political parties who form the  government and the opposition have  clearly differentiated political philosophies. Much of the personal abuse that  is the feature of the federal campaign  between the Prime Minister and the  Leader of the Opposition is taking place  precisely because there is really no  philosophic difference in their parties.  Only by extolling the virtues of their leaders and decrying the other fellow  can the Liberals and Conservatives  appear to be different parties.  Despite the fact that there is no love  lost between Premier Bennett and the  Leader of the Opposition in Victoria,  the provincial campaign never descended  to the level of a personality comparison -  which is probably just as well for Premier  Bennett ��� precisely because there is a  real philosophic difference between their  parties and a real choice for voters.  Be all of the above as it may, Premier  Bennett has been given the right to run  the province for the next three or four  years. He said from the victory podium  that British Columbians will now be in a  position to enjoy the fruits of Social  Credit frugality. We will be watching  with interest.  The Federal election  Prior to the televised debate which we  deal with elsewhere, we would have said  that it looked as if Joe Clark would be  the next Prime Minister of Canada, possibly even with a majority. After the debate it is difficult to believe that that  could still be the case. Clark was not impressive, in fact the Prime Minister in  particular wiped the floor with him.  He looked like a boy who had got into the  men's locker room by mistake.  This is an unfortunate thing for Canada. The country desperately needs a  change of government. The Liberal party  is grown weak with the defection of some  of its strongest ministers and is at the  present time a party which can in all truth  be described as a one-man band. Further,  that man, Trudeau, has an old and bitter  rivalry going back many years with the  present leader of the provincial government of Quebec. It would have been better to replace him, even with a replacement as nebulously different as the Conservative party but that would appear to  .from trie files of Coast News  ._v *ik,-._  e ISEggB-TOB f  FIVE YEARS AGO  Cecil Currie Lawrence, founder ot  Sechelt Motor Transport dies in  Sechelt aged 59.

It is our conviction that NDP leader Ed  Broadbent has waged the most thoughtful and responsible campaign but indications are, the Toronto Star's endorsement  of the NDP notwithstanding, that Canadians are not yet ready to give democratic  socialism a try. Whether in or out of  government, however, the NDP and its  predecessor, the CCF, have initiated  most of the progressive legislation  enacted in Ottawa and Broadbent's  performance in the campaign and in the  debate, coupled with his party's steadfast  and meaningful philosophic position,  has made the federal NDP a party worthy  of support. NDP members of parliament  have played a more important role in  parliament than either Conservative or  Liberal backbenchers and in the present  paucity of choice are by far the most  attractive electoral choice being offered  for that portion of the electorate which  makes any pretence ot being open-  minded and rational.

Musings  John Burnside  Impressions before die Great  Debate)  Let me begin by saying that  I like the idea of televised debates featuring those who  seek the highest office In  the land. Through the blessing, for the viewer, of the  unforgiving close-up we can  gauge the composure and  sincerity of the speakers  utilizing half-forgotten tools  of communication older even  than language. We can,  if we pay close enough attention detect the superficial  and the glib in the bearing of  the utterer even when the  practised mouth is smoothly  deflecting our understanding  and the issue. It is an opportunity to study our would-be  leaders as they perform  under pressure, study them  at close hand and in the comfort of our own home.  Of the participants, it is  safe to assume that Prime  Minister Trudeau has undertaken to take part in the Great  Debate of 1979 in Canada  because he feels confident of  his ability to shine by comparison with the other two leaders.  He is the acknowledge master  of the TV screen, much-practised with opponents who are  much less so.  Trudeau, however, has not  been fighting a winning  campaign. He has been allowed to do whatever pleased  him since without him the  Liberals are nothing and what  has pleased him is to hammer  away at the issues of national  unity and the repatriation of  the constitution. These may  well be issues of historical  significance but a leader  calling for patriotic housekeeping measures would be  in a more credible position  if he had shown himself the  master of more immediate  matters involving the economic welfare of the country.  Trudeau has not and it would  appear likely that he will need  all of his vaunted skills to keep  the attention of the electorate  focussed on the issues he  prefers during the debate.  Joe Clark, one remembers,  was most reluctant to take  part in the televised debate.  He insisted it was because  he wanted a head-on confrontation with Trudeau to the  exclusion of Broadbent of the  NDP but it is doubtful whether  anyone believed his given  reasons. The truth is probably  that his advisors did not  believe that he could best  the Prime Minister. Clark,  whose campaign is going well  at the moment has the most  to lose. Traditionally when  Canadians tire of a Liberal  government  they  give   the  Conservatives their vote and  Clark has only to avoid  making any obvious mistakes  to become Canada's next  Prime Minister.  Despite the image that the  press has tried to hang on  him as a sort of political  Jerry Lewis, Dark is reputedly  no mean debater and Trudeau's general position is  very assailable and it is unlikely when the debate is over  Clark will have done himself  any great injury at the hands  of the Prime Minster.  Ed Broadbent, the man  that Clark wanted to exclude,  is in the fortunate position  of having least to lose. The  schedule calls for him to meet  Clark in the first half hour  and then Trudeau in the  second half hour. The NDP  leader is, as is usual with  his party, fighting an uphill  battle for acceptance in the  minds of the people of  Canada.  More than the leaders of  the larger parties he has  concentrated on what ails  the country during the campaign. He has spoken tirelessly about food prices, about  unemployment, about the  need to regain control of the  Canadian economy and his  success on Sunday night will  be measured by the extent  that he conveys to the Canadian people the impression  that his concern is sincere  and that his solutions are  viable.  Impression after the Great  Debate:  The debate Is now over and  one is in the position to give  some impressions. To begin  with let it be said that Trudeau did not disappoint  his supporters. Like the actor  Marlon Brando, he does  nothing superbly well. Standing slightly removed from  the podium as the moderator  explained the rules, sitting  immobile except for the eyes  during the Clark-Broadbent  exchange he looks like a man  to be reckoned with. In action,  the Gallic shrug, the apparent  mastery of his facts and the  assured mastery of himself  make him impressive even  to those who cannot support  him.  Clark, on the other hand is  as bad as one has heard.  Again, and again he looks as  though he wishes he could put  his finger on something that  escapes him. An unfortunate  little chuckle which he manifests, one assumes to indicate  manly ease, comes close to a  nervous giggle. He is as bad  as the press has painted him.  He is a sort of political Jerry  Lewis. As a future Prime  Minister he lacks all credibility. How on earth did he become leader of the Progressive Conservatives? Trudeau  is ready to be taken but this is  not the man who can do it,  one feels.  Broadbent is good.

A few weeks  ago Bill Hughes, in a thoughtful letter to the editor, challenged some ideas I had  professed in a recent column.  My original point was that  generally speaking, more  students were staying in  school longer and learning  more and that as a general  rule the smaller the size of  the class, the better the education.  Bill's point was that students were not learning the  basics and his implication  was that many teachers were  not as dedicated as they ought  to be. He also suggested  that I was using my column  to promote my own self interest as a teacher. I think  he was right to take me to  task for that and henceforth  I am going to try to be more  objective in my comments  about education.  I would however like to  draw on a recent item in the  Kappan magazine to point out  where some of the weaknesses  in the system may be coming  from. As a former school  board chairman. Bill Hughes  should relate well to what this  article is about.  The basic assumption here  is that teachers need some  policy direction to help them  design courses for the benefit  of students and that with  or without this direction  most teachers are doing a  good job. The article is about  the responsibility of school  boards and the question it  raises is whether or not school  boards are doing their job.  "The primary obligations  of a school board are long-  range planning, setting priorities, and evaluating the superintendent. But too many  urban board members do not  even know each other. Their  time and energy are generally  committed to dealing with  immediate, headline-catching  emergencies. Animosities  between members are common. Political alignments  typically take precedence over  loyalty to the board and school  system. In such a climate,  which often approaches chaos,  the achievement of consensus is rarely possible.Boards  default on their primary obligations.  "The Seattle, Washington,  Board of Education has, however, found a way to focus on  long-range goals, short-term  priorities, and professional  effectiveness. Board members  and the superintendent of  schools recognize that planning and evaluation take time,  require mutual understanding  and cooperation, and should  be based on accurate and re  liable information. They recognize too that the time  for pressure-free planning  and evaluation cannot be  borrowed from board meetings. Instead, the board and  the superintendent schedule  an annual retreat over a long  summer weekend, away from  the city, the telephone, and  daily obligations.  "The focus of these retreats is always on planning  and evaluation. Last summer's meeting was held in  a beautiful, relaxed setting  about 25 miles from Seattle.  The board members, the  superintendent of schools,  and a consultant-facilitator  worked together from Friday  noon through Sunday noon.  Meals were catered in a private dining room to permit  members of thc group and  spouses who attended to get  to know each other socially  as well as professionally.  Dialogue about school plans  and accomplishments was  continuous. The group sessions emphasized developing  consensus rather than vote  taking. Contrasting points of  view were identified and possible resolutions considered.  "The beginning point for  for discussion was a report  and self-evaluation by the  superintendent. This meeting  was open to the public, as  were all group sessions except the one on Saturday in  which the board discussed and  evaluated the superintendent's leadership.  "Saturday's sessions were  devoted exclusively to the  board's evaluation of the superintendent. The original  agenda called for an assessment of the board's effectiveness as well, but this item had  to be deleted because of  protests by the press. (By  state law closed sessions can  be used only when staff  evaluations are being made.)  The items on the original  agenda illustrate the breadth  of the board's self evaluation;  role of the board (e.g., policy making versus administration); board relationships  with administrative staff;  board decision-making process; and board committees  and their work. Board members were asking each other  such questions as: Can we  differ philosophically and  retain respect for each other's  individual opinions? What  should be the relationship  among board members during  school board campaigns?  And what should be the relationship between the board  and the superintendent?

We certainly owe those old  boys a great deal. They had  all their buttons and they kept  them sewed on and polished.  Look at Canada's history.  Yeah ��� I know the kids say  it's dull. But look just the  same. In this century (plus a  few years) Canada has sent  troops to three of Britain's  wars, held off Fenian raids,  quelled a couple of risings  in the West, become a voice  that receives a good hearing in  world matters, increased its  population from a few million  to twenty-five (1 can remember when it was rated at  seven) came through two or  three recessions and the worst  bloody depression the world  has known.

Hughes in his letter  to the Coast News of April  24 questioned, amongst other  things, the need for smaller  classes in schools. He referred  nostalgically to his own education in the fifties when there  were 40 in a class, an untrained teacher and the children helped each other. Perhaps he was lucky and had  that rare commodity, a  natural-born teacher, not to  mention 39 cooperative,  dedicated classmates. Perhaps the school was happy  and well-run, or perhaps Mr.  Hughes was exaggerating.  Whatever the reasons, I don't  find them convincing, and I  would like to put forward the  following arguments (there  are probably many more)  against lsrge classes.  l.Some schools, especially  in cities, are huge and impersonal. The personal  touch of being known well  by a teacher is important from  kindergarten up.  2. The family unit was  stronger and less scattered in  the fifties (not so many single  parents-not so much moving  around)therefore the personal  interest of a teacher helps to  give security to those children from broken homes  or nuclear families.  3. There are many children in Canada who do not  speak or understand English  very well and who could  not learn easily or be assimilated into the Canadian culture very easily without the  personal attention of a teacher.  4. The Provincial Government now wishes the handicapped to be integrated into  schools. A handicapped  person wouldn't have a chance  in a big class.  5. A small class gives the  teacher more opportunity  to teach and is essier on  the nerves. Any teacher is  better if he can relax and enjoy  some rapport with his students.  Mr. Hughes' suggestion of  children helping children  sounds great and could be  useful in helping teachers out  with some of the many out  we are by our own standards  which may be good or may  be lousy.  I asked a French Canadian  who had been badly wounded  in W.W.I and earned the  Military Cross in so doing  (he carried on). His answer  "C'est les Anglais." Yes -  and I have received the same  snobby treatment by a Frenchman in Paris, because I, a  Canadian, spoke lousy French  Who can I speak French with?  We just don't know each  other. We should. That means  listening - but with understanding. Broad understanding. Who really has that?  How many people listen  to all candidates regardless? Heaven knows it's a  thankless unending task to  try and understand both  provincial and federal politics,  the candidates, the issues.  But if we peremptorily go  to the radio and shut a candidate off with a "Oh Lord  I   can't   stand   that   man"  do.  On the subject of what the  teachers actually teach,  I agree with Mr. Hughes that  the 3 R's are a necessity.  They sound easy but are a  terrible chore for some  children. If they can be made  fun to learn, why not? But  that leads to other arguments  and another letterl  B.

Over The Edge  Parti  On Thursday, August 30th,  1973 Steve Littljohn's loaded  logging truck left the road on  the east side of Alice Lake and  plunged 325 feet down a steep  cliff. Steve survived. The  truck, owned by Joe Borer  Trucking, a contractor for  MacMillan Bloedel, was  totally demolished. "I don't  know how he got out of it,"  said M&B industrial relations  officer Al Woodhouse when  interviewed by a Port Hardy  'North Island Gazette' reporter. "The first part (of the  tall; was down an 88 percent  grade."  He throws the 848-Ken-  worth Into gear. The huge  logging truck shudders awake  and snorts ponderously off  down the grade. Behind the  cab, the log load towers,  riding his back like a bet.  She's wooded-down pretty  good, but what the hell,  Littlejohn likes them that  way. His flnt name Is Steve,  but be Is known more commonly as Speed In tribute to  his bell-for-leather driving  style. It's a long, treacherous  haul to the dump and the other  drivers seldom make mon  than two trips a day, but on  one occasion, to everyone's  profound amazement, be  made four.  Littlejohn Is appropriately  named. He's a small man -  no more than five-six In his  sboes ��� but what he lacks In  stature, he makes up for In  an almost total absence of  fear. He's been skinning big  rigs for years and knows them  Inside-out, pushing them to  the limit and beyond, taking  risks that make more cautious  men shudder and shake their  beads. This recklessness  has ended in near-disaster  on more than one occasion,  Pages from a Life-Log  Peter Trower  Re-Elect  JACK  PEARSALL  a  Authorized by egent  lor Jack Peeriell,  liberal Comox-  Powell River.  and be has the scan to prove  tt. He's made the hospital  twice this year already, but  close-calls only whet his Insatiable appetite for danger.  At thirty-six, be Is already a  legend around the upcoast  timber-claims.  Sure, I've known Stevie  for years. More than twenty,  I guess. First time I ever met  him, he was maybe fourteen.  Rode his horse through the  brush tu Port Mellon before  the road was built. He had  a haywire, don't-give-a-  goddam look about him even  then. Course, he still had both  eyes, and his face wasn't  as banged up as it is now,  but he really wasn't that much  different. Steve always had  this thing about horses. Might  have become a jockey if he  could've made the weight.  Later on, he used to hang  around Hastings Park.  Worked as an exercise boy for  a while. Owned a couple of  racehorses too. Can't remember what in hell we talked  about that first time, but I  thought he seemed like an  interesting kid.  It's about eleven o'clock  in the morning and nice weather, early September sunshine gliding the stripped  hills, splashing like honey across the windshield. Through  shades, Steve studies the road  with his one good eye. The  glass one, slightly crooked,  dreams off elsewhere. Been  here two weeks and figures  he'll stay awhile, maybe even  till Christmas. The guys are  an okay bunch, and working  seven days a week the money's sure as hell good. He's  hit worse layouts than this  for goddam sure. His mind  turns to the load. It's chained  down since a good part of the  run Is along a semi-public  highway, but that one hemlock  Is too far ahead. Could slip  further on the steep stretch  and bind against the cab.  There's only one other landtag  between here and the hill. If  he's going to do anything  about the hemlock, It better  be now. The lower tree is  Just ahead. He brakes down  and wheezes to a halt beside  the grapple-loader. "Hey can  you buck that Jill-poke off for  me?" he shouts to the chase.  "Sure thing, Speed."  The landtag-man picks up  his power-saw, climbs the cab  ladder and yanks on the starting cord. A minute of whining  and grinding later, the protruding end drops free and rolls  to the ground with a small  thud. "Okay now?"  "Yeah, that's great. Thanks  a lot, guy. See ya later."  Steve lights a cigarette,  opens her up again and rumbles off down the road. Should  be able to make the spill by  lunchtlme.  Recall the first camp Steve  ever worked. I was setting  chokers at the same place.  He was fresh out of school  and green as grass, so they  put him blowing whistles.  Had a bit of a rough time of it  at first, and the crew ribbed  him a lot. They were a pretty  hardboiled bunch. One time  he slipped off a log with the  coil of wire. Got it in such a  hell of a tangle it took fifteen  or twenty minutes to help him  straighten it out. Poor kid  was practically in tears. He  was game though, and he  picked up fast. Finn Billy, the  hooker, took a liking to him.  Christ, it wasn't more than  a year later, he had him up  the spar tree with him in a  spare set of belt and spurs,  teaching him the business.  But Steve really didn't want to  be a high-rigger. Had his eyes  on the trucks, even then.  The lower tree's out of sight  now and he's starting down  the wont part of the road.  It winds like a sloping, crooked ribbon along the north  wall of the valley. It's downhill  for a long distance bom this  point at maybe a thirty  percent grade - not the steepest run on the coast, but  steep enough for a heavily  loaded rig any day of the  week. The upper side Is a  wasteland of logged-over  slash. The lower side hain't  been yarded yet. It drops  away almost vertically, a  giddy mountain goat show,  Jackstrawed with felled and  bucked   timber.   It   doesn't  faze Steve ta the least. Tough  sidehllls are no new thing.  He's seen more of them than  be can remember. He doesn't  envy the guys who'll have to  yard that one, but bell, that's  not his department. He's a  truckjockcy - a high-money  man. Climbed enough of those  bastards when be was a kid.  There's a crow yarding to  another road at the bottom  of the valley. He hears the  whistles float up and smiles  comfortably, content with  his lot.  It was several years before  Steve got a chance to break  in on logging truck. In the  meantime, he practiced on  cars. Hell, he must have  totalled six or seven of them  before he was twenty-one.  We were all wild young bastards in those days, but Littlejohn was just about the wildest. Put him on the B.C.  Interdiction List by the time  he was nineteen, which has to  be some kind of nutty record.  Didn't slow him up a damn  bit. I can remember one godawful ride we took to Sechelt  before the road was paved.  Must have hit a hundred on  the straight stretches, kicking  up gravel like bloody shrapnel. Scared the living Christ  out of me I  Something's wrong, very  wrong indeed. The Kenworth  Is picking up speed. Speed to  Steve Is a frequent and normal  condition, but this tail's  hardly the place for It. What  the hell's gone wrong?  He Jams the air-brakes on  full, but there's no response  whatsoever.

Nothing to do but Jump  before she gets going much  faster. Then be realizes be  can't do that either. The load  Is practically scraping the  bank on the driver's side,  and there's not enough  clearance. He'd either get  clobbered by the bunks or  go under those steamrollering  wheels. Far off down the road,  he can see a pickup truck  approaching. Boy, that guy  better get the hell out of the  wayl Then be hits on one thin  hope.

Mars also squares  Jupiter indicating rash promises, hasty schemes and risky  associations. Taking another  chance on love will need  careful thought.  Meanwhile, four planets  have moved into Taurus  redirecting our attention to  affairs which may have been  neglected or forgotten. The  following prognostications  point to those life departments where renewed energy  will be felt.  ARIES (March 21-April 19)  Accent is on personal finances and possessions.  Looks like your heading for  a spending spree you'll  regret. Urge is to buy unnecessary clothes and Items.  Temptation is to be the big  spender at upcoming social  event. Advice is to leave  cheques, credit cards and  extra cash at home next  weekend. Say 'no' to child's  exorbitant demands. Financial  common sense returns soon,  TAURUS (April 20-May 20)  The Sun, Mercury, Mars  and Venus in your sign  highlight personality, intelligence, courage and sex-  appeal. Others begin to find  you irresistible. It's your turn  to lavish money on clothes,  hairstyles, improved personal  appearance. Follow up all  opportunities presented  during next two weeks. Those  born around April 24 may  fall in love again seriously  next weekend.  GEMINI (May 21-June 21)  Contentment is found being  alone, working on projects  without interruptions. It's  time to contemplate personal  limitations and problems.  Thinking in private produces  ideas, hunches, brainwaves.  Silence brings the answers.  Right now you could be attracted to mysterious person  confined or in seclusion.  Secret or forbidden involvement deepens. Beware,  CANCER (June 22-July 22)  Looks like you'll be expected to get involved with community enterprise. Happiness  is found sharing your skills  and suggestions with organizers. Anyone searching for  love may find the right person  at group gathering. Don't  hesitate to smile 'hello'.  Meanwhile, friends and  acquaintances suggest ways  to further goals, hopes, future  dreams.  LEO(July23-Aug.22)  Career, job or public  standing receives much-  needed boost. You now have  the ability to charm your way  into enviable position. At  last, flattering the boss gets  you what you want. Promoting  recent achievements brings  helpful contacts. It's the right  time to request more money  and a few days off. Those of  you born around July 26th  hit lucky streak.  VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)  You'll be noticed for your;  increased love of learning,  searching for the truth, re-  fusing to accept, knowing how  it all should be. Despite  what others say, your present  ideas are brilliant. Meanwhile contacts with foreigners  are favoured Falling in love  with well-travelled stranger  is tempting. Mail or process  long-distance communications  now. Dreams are erotic.  LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23)  Accent is on other people's  money or possessions. Now's  the time to negotiate long-  term loans. Bankers and lenders of cash are feeling  generous. Switch on the  charm to get more than you  need. Close associate's  financial position improves.  Loved one may be tempted to  overspend or gamble.  SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22)  Relations with other people  now bring happiness. Love,  warmth and passion return to  marriages and commitments.  It's time to work out differences, say you're sorry and  kiss away tears. Starting all  over again is worth another  try. Meanwhile, business  agreements, alliances and  contracts seem too good  to be true.  SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23  -Dec. 21)  Contentment is found where  you perform daily tasks.  Looks like you're beginning  to enjoy present occupation.  Others still appreciate your  innovative ideas, short cuts,  tricks-of-the-trade. Remember  happier work-scene atmosphere revolves around you.  Lending a helping hand boosts  popularity and prestige.  However, falling in love with  innocent co-worker will set  tongues wagging.

(Oxford University  Press, Toronto 1978. $4.95).  The book is his eleventh  and certainly his most substantial to date. Containing  many of his strongest poems  from previous books and number of new poems, it is the  kind of book a poet wants and  needs to publish from time  to time in his career as a milestone to indicate the distance covered so far and suggest directions for the future.  One of the most striking  features of Lane's poetry  has always been his uncompromising realism in the face  of the horrific aspects of  existence. This unflinching  courage and his masterful,  economic control of words  combine to create effects  that are genuinely stunning,  as in the opening lines of  "Last Night in the Darkness,"  "Last night in the darkness  someone killed our cat.  dipped her in gas. Set her  aflame.  Her scattered kittens  adorned the yard  In opaque sacks where she  aborted them  none of them burned in her  pain."  Such passages are an almost unreadably brutal  assault on the consciousness of the reader, almost  as brutal as the act described,  and Lane has occasionally  been accused of using his  talent merely for sensational  effect. Yet even a cursory  reading of his work reveals  the genuine depth of his concern with suffering and its  implications. In "Because I  Never Learned" he describes  how, when he was a boy,  his father told him to step on  the head of a kitten they  found lying i.' the street  "after the bus had run over  its hind quarters." Twenty  years later, the minute details  of the scene are still indelibly  etched on his memory.  "The silence of the dying  when the fragile skull  collapsed  under my hard bare heel,  the curved tongue in the  dust  that would never cry again"  and finally the image of his  father "as he walked tall  away", the embodiment of  thc courage it takes to look  at mute unalterable suffering,  not dispassionately, but  compassionately, without sentiment, and to put a merciful  end to it, where possible,  in the same spirit. The poet  says he didn't question his  father "because I never  learned how/ to be gentle and  the country/I lived in was hard  with dead/animals and  men". Yet everything about  the poem says that he has  never quite learned not to be  gentle, never quite managed  to match the self-contained  courage embodied in his  father's calm erect backbone.  It's that unspoken boyhood  question that he has been  asking and attempting to  answer in poetry ever since.  Whether his subject is a bird  frozen to death on the window sill, a man who murdered  his own child, lepers and  children in the streets of South  American cities, or a man who  cadges drinks in the beer  parlour by hammering pins  into his paralysed arm, Lane  persistently struggles to resolve the tension between  ugliness and beauty, to give  pain its place as the prerequisite of ecstasy, to accept  existence    in    its    totality.  CARSANDTRUCKS  Rental-Leasing  -Also-  Domestic and  Industrial  Equipment  next to the liquor store  In Sechelt.  Seaside Rentals  885-2848  Fortunately, the tension can  never be resolved by a single  act or a single poem; it's  something everyone must  face and resolve for themselves on a daily, even momentary basis, and it has  produced such marvellous  poems as "At the Edge of the  Jungle," "Unborn Things,"  and "And Say of What You  See in the Dark".  "My fire creates the night  I am surrounded by. The  image  and what runs beneath.  The silence following sound  That which is bound and  that  which is undone. This is  the bond,  the light and the night  beyond,"  My first real encounter with  Lane's poetry occurred only  a little over a year ago.  The unfortunate thing about  the vast amount of poetry  published in this country  every year is that you have to  wade through so much wasted  paper to find a few things that  are really good. I complained  in this vein to Peter Trower  one day and he handed me a  copy of Lane's Albino  Pheasants (Harbour Publishing). The poem he wanted  me to read was "From the  Hot Hills' and, reprinted in  Poems, New and Selected, It  remains one of my favourite  poems. It is simply a story of  Sikh immigrants working the  "Green-Chain", the most  dangerous job in a lumber  mill. Isolated, alienated, the  butt of crude jokes and  beating, forbidden to speak  to the women of the town  and unable yet to bring their  women with them, "they  break/on the long weekend  when the loggers/pelt their  shack with stones." In the  resulting fight, three are  injured and taken to hospital  "with arms and bellies  slashed." Questioned by the  police, ...they tell him  the fight was amongst  themselves.  They say they fought over  the memory  of their women; that to keep  from going mad they had  driven themselves  there with words, believing  they could survive  by telling each other stories  of love."  Narrative poems like this  one reveal an accomplished  story-teller co-existing with  the lyric poet. "From the Hot  Hills" is a compelling short  story, compressed even  further into powerful poetry.  Story-telling is one of the  great human arts; it is how we  learn about ourselves as  human beings. When it falls  into decline and is superseded  by the disjointed recitation of  neurotic symptoms,* it means  we are losing contact with,  and perhaps even losing  interest in, our own humanity.  At a time when it's getting  to be a relief to read someone  who has something to say,  the poetry of Patrick Lane,  lyric or narrative, has a stubborn integrity that's encouraging to the reader and,  let's hope, to the rest of the  literary community in this  country.  Positive vibrations  By Isaac  The new music has arrived!  Let's look at the three groups  that have spearheaded the  attack on our complacent  radio stations; Dire Straits,  Elvis Costello and the Attractions, and Blondir  We should all be familiar  with Dire Straits by now.  Their first album has been out  for more than six months and  it nearly went unnoticed until  someone actually listened to  it and decided to take a chance  and play'it on the radio. Now  it is firmly rooted in the top  of the album charts and in  rcdio playlists as well. The  success of Dire Straits shows  that people want to hear something other than the soft disco  pap that is currently strangling the radio frequencies  across North America and the  radio programmers are starting to respond. Their songs  are longer than those of most  new bands but the energy is  there in abundance as well as  a bit of punkish venom.  Their second album Communique is to be released in May  and the band could be in the  unique position of having two  albums in the top ten at the  same time; I would like to see  their royalty cheques if that  happens.  Elvis Costello and the  Attractions have made it  the hard way. When it became  obvious that radio stations  weren't going to play his  style of rock and roll, he  started touring North America  almost constantly for the past  year and a half. His third  album, Armed Forces broke  into the top ten on the  strength of his great live performances and a lot of good  press coverage; now radio  stations are starting to play  Costello's music. His earlier  records certainly shouldn't  be overlooked. The first, My  Aim Is True is his most varied  record, ranging from the ten  der Allison ballad to the  reggae based classic  Watching the Detectives.  The second album This Years  Model was claimed album of  the year in nearly every music  paper and it ranks as one of  the best records of the decade.  The songs are driven along  by the manic playing of the  Attractions and the spite of  Costello's lyrics. It is a great  dancing record for people  who like rock and roll in a  Buddy Holly style. Armed  Forces combines elements  of the early records with more  emphasis on the songwriting  in an attack on what Elvis calls  emotional fascism; music for  the head as well as the feet.  Blondie have used a different method to gather airplay.  They recorded a disco song  and got it played on both  AM and FM radio. David  Bowie used this technique to  finally gain North American  recognition with his Fame hit;  it worked for him and the  method seems to be working  for Blondie. The song Heart  of Glass was number one in  England for about four weeks  and its success pushed the  album Parallel Lines into tho  number one album spot.  The group led by singer  Debby Hany play pop-rock  material with roots in the late  fifties early sixties, adolescent  love songs with the insight of  a thirty year old. They also  have three albums Blondie,  Plastic Letters and Parallel  Lines, try the latter and if  you get hooked then try the  other two.  All three groups have  brightened up the radio play-  lists considerably. More importantly they have opened  the doors for more new  music to get a fair hearing.  So if you're suffering from  dull music do yourself a  favour and try one of the  above records, but be prepared to do some dancing.  Coast News, May 15,1979.  5.

We prepare the ground for planting,  making certain that we select the  right kind of species for the area. For  instance, hemlock does better on  moist sites, while Douglas-fir excels  on dry, sunny slopes.  In recent years, fertilizing has proved  to be a cost-efficient way to speed up  growth and make a stand ready for  harvesting in a shorter time.  Any gardener knows that thinning is  essential. It's the same with trees.  You thin out the weaklings to provide  more water, nutrients, sun and space  for those that remain.  The science and art of forest management is evolving at an exciting  pace. MacMillan Bloedel foresters  work closely with provincial foresters.

Tom Rothney, Principal of  Pender Harbour Secondary  School, welcomed the School  Board to Pender Harbour for  their May Educational Meeting, and outlined the proposed  course of study for the 1979-80  school year, hoping that some  extra staff will be made available to the school, even on a  part-time basis.  The proposed schedule  would return to the old three-  term system, requiring each  student to be enrolled in a  full eight-course programme.  Grade 8 students would be required to take six constant  courses: English, Math, Social Studies, Science, P.E.,  and French, and during the  year would take five-week (fifteen hours) Introductory courses in a wide range of subjects  wood and metal work, electricity, drafting, foods, textiles, consumer management,  and typing, with a choice of  Junior Band or Art and Drama.  Grades 9 and 10 take five  constants and select three  other courses from a wide-  ranging list, some of which  can only be offered in alternate years. Students will  be encouraged to get as varied a programme as possible  in order to keep their options  open for their senior years.  Grades 11 and 12 will have  four constant courses and will  be expected to complete (successfully) fourteen senior  courses, including one marketable skill (commerce, I.E.,  Home Ec., etc.) in order to  graduate. Because of staffing problems in such a small  school, some courses such as  Science 11 and 12 and Construction 11 and 12 will be offered in one year so that stu  dents can take both Chemistry and Biology if they wish.  Mr. Rothney added that the  beautiful new school had contributed to an upswing of  school spirit and pride in  themselves among the students.  Mrs. Karen Adamson,  speaking for the School Advisory Committee, asked the  Board for individual help for  the students in the matter of  career guidance, expressing  their need for information  about entrance requirements  and options available for further education���things which  parents rarely know about  because changes take place  so quickly in today's society.

"Certain conditions are  essential to provide leadership  for long-range planning, the  selection of immediate priorities, and the evaluation of  educational progress. First,  board members must have  time to deliberate, to work  toward consensus, to come to  know and understand each  other. Second, those who  serve on boards of education  must maintain loyalty and  commitment to the board  itself, rather than see themselves as a collection of representatives of diverse  constituencies that compete  for advantage. Third, mem  bers must achieve a team  spirit within the board while  at the same time they protect  the rights of individuals to  maintain personal convictions through dissenting  action. Finally, and most important, the board must  achieve community support  for its leadership."  The Kappan article gives  a clear definition of what  school boards ought to be  doing whether in Seattle  or Dawson Creek. It would be  interesting to make enquiries  around the province to find  out just how many school  boards are doing the job they  were elected to do.  If you have a gripe about  education, the most convenient target is the teacher but  the likelihood exists that the  teacher is only the bottom  rung on a rotting ladder, Like  they say in Sicily "The fish  starts to rot from the head."  The regular monthly meeting of Branch No.38 O.A.P.O.  was held on Monday, May 7,  at Harmony Hall. We kept this  meeting to a minimum as  we had rented the Hall to the  Lions for a very special  occasion.  The pot luck supper which  took place on April 25, and the  whist drive which followed  turned out to be a pleasurable  event. This was the project  of the "over 40 Club", organised by the convenor,  Mrs. Gladys Coates. This  group plans on one social  event per month.  The Spring Bazaar was a  tremendous success, and was  the result of the combined  efforts of numerous workers  under the direction of Mrs.  Irene Bushfield. We wish to  thank everyone who made  donations and gave their time  to this worthwhile cause.  First and third prizes of the  raffle went to Mrs. Mar}'  Carmichael, and the second  prize went to Mrs. T. Knowles.  The mystery prize was won by  Mrs. V. Campbell.  On June 5 we will welcome  visitors from Winnipeg. A  luncheon will be served at  Harmony Hall, with Mrs.  Gladys Coates as convenor.  We would welcome assistance  from members, and a limited  number of tickets are available  at a cost of $2.50. Those  desiring tickets please let us  know early so that we can  order the necessary supplies.  We have to cancel our social  afternoon this month as it falls  on a holiday weekend. However on Monday, May 14,  the Hall will be open for  games and cards. Carpet  bowling will continue until  the end of June if sufficient  interest is shown.  A work party is planned for  Thursday, May 17, at 10 a.m.  for the purpose of cleaning the  many chairs we have, and performing general household  chores. Arrangements have  been made to have the floors  chers were recompensed for  missing the hockey game and  the election results by a performance by Elphinstone  School band augmented by  seven Pender Harbour  students and conducted by  Bill Rayment.  The Band was happy to play  for the School Board to demonstrate not only their  expertise but show off their  smart new uniforms, for which  the Board contributed  $1,000���the balance raised by  the students and their Parents' Auxiliary���before they  set out May 22 for a tour of  Vancouver Island. They will  give concerts In Sooke, Parksville, Sayward, and Port  l| Hardy as well as attend a band  clinic at Port McNeil before  returning May 26.  Mr. Rayment spoke highly  of the commitment of the  group, of their willingness to  put in the required practice  sessions, and their pride in  their achievement. They hope  to enter the Vancouver Kiwanis Festival next year and  bring fame to the Sunshine  Coast. They are presently  practising a new and different  skill���marching and playing���  so that they may take part in  the Timber Days Parade.

The school's exchange programme with a Toronto  school, planned for next  month, has unfortunately  been postponed, although it is  hoped that it will go through  either in August or later in  the Fall. Paul Levine showed  a filmed tour of the Sunshine  Coast filmed by Andrew Fletcher and Alec Muncaster  with spectacular footage of the  Pender Harbour and Skook-  umchuck taken from the air,  which the students had intended to take with them, but  which will be forwarded in the  hope that the prospect of a  visit to such a beautiful area  will motivate the Toronto  students to raise the necessary funds.  After three very successful  trips to the Bowron Lakes,  Cape Scott on the northern  tip of Vancouver Island, and  last year, along the West  Coast Trail, the Pender  school's Outdoors Club isn't  able this year to fit in a week's  trip but hopes to arrange  another trip next year.  ilHIUKHlIililll^  The Gallery  Shop  Special local hand-painted  cards, wood carving, rock  jewellery,    and     paintings.

It enables the grower  to be generous with his less  talented friends or to make  a buck on the side.  Most seed packages wilt tell  you to sow the seed where you  want the plant in the garden.  For the lazy gardener and  indifferent weeder this is often  difficult as the little seeds  sprout along with little weeds  and it is impossible to tell  one from the other. I recommend the purchase of a large  bag of porting soil. This is  sterilized and the only sprouts  will be your own.  Thin plastic containers are  cheap or may be obtained  from any gardener. Fill the  container two thirds full  of wet potting soil, lightly  scatter the seeds, cover and  VWWW  BACK JACK  AuthorUadbyagant lor Jac* Paarull  llbtnlCmix-FDwall Kvar.  tmm-m_mm___mmm___m  TO CONTROL FOOD PRICES  ��� Establish a Fair Prices  Commission  ��� Return the subsidy for milk  and wheat  e Restrict corporate concentration  FOR A RIDE TO THE POLLS ON  MAY22ndPH0NE   885.8312  ^gjjjW^*  RAY SKELLY   N.D  Authorized by the O.A., Comox-Powell River N.D.P., 1509 Cllffe Ave., Courtenay, B.C.  set on a sunny window sill  inside or outside now. Earlier  in the season we would have  kept them inside but we are  starting late. Keep lightly  watered. Transplant gently  when they have two full sets  of their own leaves. You will  soon learn to recognize the  leaf shapes unique to each  different plant and if you mark  the container at seeding time  you will be able to name  them.  You will soon be in that  glorious position of being able  to tell a flower from a weed.  One packet of seed will give  you about three dozen plants  for 39*. As the season warms,  place your seedlings outside  and when they start to look  fat and healthy transplant  into empty, well-tossed and  weeded sections of your  garden. Check the packet and  plant according to expected  height.  A new gardener usually  has the tall plants in the forefront and the little guys  blooming to no applause in  the rear. We all learn as we  operate. Some plants are more  difficult to grow than others so  risk someone at the plant shop.  My favourites are Cosmos.  They are big fat pink and  mauve daisies which grow  tall and provide plenty of cut  flowers   until   heavy   frost.  For a fast and colourful late  starter this year, nip out this  very day and buy four packets  of climbing masturtium seeds.  These are delightfully prolific  orange and yellow flowers  which require almost no care  at all. Just poke them about  half an inch into the ground  everywhere...against posts  and gates, beneath trees and  besides logs and stumps.  They will climb all over the  place giving you plenty of  colour, cut flowers and the  green leaves for your salads.  They are lovely and fragrant  and will bloom their little  hearts out for you in the worst  possible soil. They are cheap  and effortless and will seed  themselves in years to come.  It is fun, this time of year, to  waste a very little money on  seeds to just toss into dull  areas.  Now with this week's  effort accomplished you can  retire to your hammock with  a good book and await results  but you're probably not yet  thoroughly hooked. Just wait  till the first blooms appear  then we'll have you bragging  like a fisherman.  If you have any money left  over you'll wish you had a  claw and a trowel in order to  keep the soil turned and the  weeds at bay. Remember  that, for the little time and  money you are putting into  this, the rewards will be great.  As for your grass, all we  suggest is that you keep it  trimmed. If it is full of weeds,  don't worry about it, all that  means is that it will remain  green during the dry season  when all the finer lawns  turn yellow. Weedy grass is  tougher and the children can  play on it to their hearts  content. That's what it's  for.  Let the fussy people worry  about creeping fescues and  Kentucky blue. Remember,  we are the careless gardeners  who want to enjoy our gardens  rather than become slaves  to them.  A Richmond couple came through the Sunshine Coast lately In their 1928 ren  Ford. The renovallon was undertaken by the owner himself.  mated  '' '..mm  a*-mm��   ^^BB  WmW           ���  4tf I   ���   "4 A  Wm  J  B "'^'  Hw__\\  ���'   \  mt'i-mmWrn.    ^^^^^     \,*i?        aH  k                      : T*       ^-                  "           m*M  ^^^JMm  *f|   a^^     HI      1  f\  Sunshine Coast Lions Club's Mother's Day Pancake Breakfast was well-attended at  the Homestead Drive-In last Sunday morning.

From September of 1962  until the summer of 1963, I  was attending the C.F. Mott  Training College in Liverpool,  my third and final year at  this institution designed to  teach teachers to teach.  For English Literature, I  had chosen to write my special  paper on the development of  the short story with special  reference to the short stories  of Aldous Huxley, D.H.  Lawrence and Katherine  Mansfield. Through reading  journals, collections of letters,  volumes of criticism, clippings  from magazines and so forth,  I had established many links  between D.H.Lawrence and  Aldous Huxley, between D.H.  Lawrence and Katherine  Mansfield, between both men  and Katherine Mansfield's  husband, the critic and somewhat less than spectacularly  successful author J. Middle-  ton Murry, but nothing to  relate Aldous Huxley and  Katherine Mansfield in any  tangible way.  I complained of this to my  tutor, K.J. Fielding, a Dickens  scholar of some renown who  was also the Vice-Principal  of the College. He shrugged  The Burlington  LookS9  &  o**  $a\e Conti^  ����  //,  Until May 31st. , 1979.  his shoulders, but raised his  eyebrows in disdain when in  my enthusiasm for thoroughness I suggested that I write to  Mr. Huxley and ask some  questions of him. "These  people are too busy to write  to students. They have much  better thing* to do anyway."  Words to this effect escaped  his lips, so it was indeed  gratifying to show him the  following letter in February of  1963: 27   1   63  Dear Mr. Crane,  Yes I knew Katherine Mam-  field fairly well, and liked her  stories. She was an unhappy  woman, capable of acting  any number of parts but uncertain of who, essentially,  she was - a series of points  and arcs on the circumference of a circle that was  uncertain of the location of  its centre.  Since The Doors of Perception I have written a short  novel, The Genius and The  Goddess (Edwin Muir thought  it the best thing I ever did -  but I don't know if he is right)  and a long Utopian phantasy  published last Spring called  Island, a book which I regard  as important which has aroused enthusiasm and annoyance on the part of its readers.  I have also written a volume  of Essays, "Adonis and The  Alphabet", and a short  volume (to be published this  year) on Literature & Science.  Yours truly  Aldous Huxley.  The letter was hand written  on an American air letter.  I sent a copy of the letter to *  Professor  Grover  Smith  of '  Durham, California who was *  authorized by Aldous Huxley's  family  to gather  his :  letters into a volume for pub- I  lication. The book, Letters of .  Aldous Huxley, was published ���  by Chatto & Windus in 1969, ,  and the letter, in edited form, ,  appeared   in   this   volume, j  In a brief acknowledgement ,  of the copy I sent him, Grover  Smith said that the corres- ',  pondence   between   Aldous .  'fuxley and Katherine Mans- .  field had been destroyed in s .  fire in 1961 which consumed .  his house. There is only one  other letter in the volume  which makes anything more  than a passing reference to  Katherine Mansfield. Coast News, May 15,1979.  9.  Adults need love too  The Grand Opening of Ocean Wholesale Ltd. took place on Reid Road last Saturday  Society has long ago recognized the concept and validity  of rehabilitation. However,  when child abuse Is mentioned  the almost universal reaction  is to become incensed with the  parents, here is no empathy  for these parents who are often viewed as less than human. Today, thanks to an  increased awareness and  greater understanding of  this problem, a much more  positive view has developed.  Awareness in itself is  helpful. If each and everyone  of us realize that we are potential child abusers this is a  start. Each one of us can recognize that everyone has  strengths and weaknesses. 1  know that 1 change and grow  in an atmosphere of warmth  and acceptance more than in  one of ostracism and condemnation.' It is easy to see that  people who are condemned  and ostracized do not come  forward to ask for assistance,  help and understanding. Thus  in May, Family Month, as  well as this being the Year of  the Child, it is an excellent  time to become more understanding of ourselves and  others. ���.  This month is also an auspicious time for every adult to  recognize his/her influence on  children. It is a time to strive  for more effective and positive ways of interacting with  children. Friends, nurses,  counsellors, and social wor  kers are there to talk to, to  understand and to help you to  be understood. Parenting  courses are offered by Adult  Education. This month affords every parent a chance to  build upon his or her strengths  to greater strengths away  from weakness in an atmosphere of warmth and acceptance.  Child abuse can be prevented by understanding that part  of us which is frustrated and  confused. Parents can grow  from exploring themselves  and discussing with others the  joys and difficulties of parenting. Parents are as precious and lovable as the children and need to be understood and loved too. This year  is our year as people and as  parents to better understand  ourselves, our children, and  each other.

New Chatelech principal here  Recently Mrs. June Bernauer was appointed principal of  Chatelech Junior Secondary School, where she will take her  post in September. On Monday and Tuesday last week she  visited thc school to become acquainted with the staff and to be  briefed by the present principal, Mr. Roland Hawes.

She was thc win-  mined not to "fall on her face." In the early years of her tea- ner of a Sne" Canada Fellow-  ching career, she found as a working mother that she had no sniP in Career Education in  choice but to be extremely well organized - a quality which is  going to be very useful to her as a principal. Now she has no  family commitments, so she will be devoting all her energies to  her new job.  1978. The accredited careers  course which has been offered  in Kitimat, where she presently teaches, includes comprehensive aptitude testing as  well as practical experience  in the work place. The important thing is to find out what  the student is good at in order,  hopefully, to secure job satisfaction in the future. She says  that there are many difficulties involved in a pre-appren-  ticeship programme, but talks  are going on between the Ministry of Labour, union leaders,  and the educators. It would be  a major achievement if some  kind of programme could be  started in Canada, which at  the moment is a net importer  of skilled workers.  The appointment of Mrs.  Bernauer from a number of  well-qualified candidates was  a lengthy process which involved studying the files, and  an informal discussion before the usual interview. One  of the school trustees to whom  this reporter spoie said they  are very optimistic about their  choice and were pleased with  the slate of excellent candidates who had applied. In  the end it was the human qualities which had to be judged���  which was well summed up  by Mr. Don Douglas, Chairman of the Board,"After  having considered the needs  as expressed by the community, staff, and students,  my final decision was based on  whether or not the candidate  had the personal qualities that  I felt would be required  "In Mrs. Bernauer, I  saw what appeared to be a  poised, articulate, clear-  thinking, structured person  with a great deal of empathy  for the needs of developing  young people."

Association  AL LAZERTE  wants to be YOUR  Member of Parliament  As principal she will not  confine herself just to administrative duties but will also  teach some subjects. When  asked which ones, she replied,  "Teachers are hired to teach  students, not subjects".  She maintain', that students  respond to good teaching  primarily and not necessarily  to how knowledgeable of the  subject the teacher may be.  The poor morale in schools  today is due partly to lack of  discipline and lack of communication amongst students,  teachers, and the community.  Mrs. Bernauer believes that  the younger members of the  school must be disciplined in  order that they may learn to  discipline themselves by the  time they graduate. With an  open-door policy, she hopes  that parents and any other  members of the community  will feel free to discuss  problems and put forward  ideas. "Education is a co-operative effort, and teachers  do not necessarily have all the  answers." Therefore, all  problems, including those  related to drugs and alcohol,  should be dealt with openly,  as schools are part of communities, and consequently  school problems are communi-  Skelly slams  Continued from Page One  housewives. Mr. Tapio felt  husbands should be able to  pay the Canada Pension contribution for their wives. B.F.  Friesen voiced his concern  about those on fixed incomes.  Many speakers agreed that  personal income tax exemptions were too small.  Skelly outlined Ed Broad-  bent's economic package.  "The corporate share of taxation is shrinking while the  wage earner is paying more  every year, "said Skelly.  Tommy Douglas's proposal  to keep oil prices low to stimulate employment and keep  our products competitive was  mentioned by Skelly. "If the  NDP holds the balance of  power in a minority government, they'll sing a different  tune when it comes to the new  Bank Act and mortgage  rates," said Skelly.  Regional Director Joe Har-  ty problems. But she concluded that one must approach  teaching with the premise  that children are basically  good.  Mrs. Bernauer supports the  C.O.R.E. Curriculum, as she  believes that it is necessary  for students to learn the basic  skills. It is also important to  teach children to have the desire to learn (that the learning  process does not stop at graduation), how to think, and how  to make decisions. Her ambition is to prepare every student to cope with living in  today's society.  On the subject of te'.evision,  Mrs. Bernauer said that its  influence on the learning  process is not fully understood either by teachers or  by parents. Like a lot of modern technology, it has disadvantages as well as advantages, and must be used accordingly.  In an area like the Sunshine  Coast, which is made up of  numerous small communities,  it is an advantage to have  smaller secondary schools.  Mrs. Bernauer maintains however that large schools do not  necessarily present the same  problems to city students who  are  used to living  in  the  rison thanked Mr. Skelly for  his dedicated and thoughtful approach. Mr. Skelly promised to make himself available to his constituents and  to speak for their concerns.  Local piper Jock Cummings  piped him into and out of the  meeting to a rousing Scottish  tune. "I'm no stranger to the  sound. Our house was often  filled with pipe music and my  brother is a piper of some  note," said Skelly.

The Board expressed their  discomfort and reluctance to  make a quick decision on  an issue with far-reaching  implications, and deliberations lasted for two hours with  a number of suggested  amendments before a final  agreement was reached.  Had the Board decided  that policy must at all costs  be adhered to and insisted  on more time for study it  wouldn't necessarily have  meant the end of the project,  but who knows how long the  delay if (Jie Aquatic Society  missed the May 14 deadline.

A little before midnight  the final draft was given unanimous approval and read  as follows: Capital Costs-  the School Board has provided  the pool tank and the basement in which the tank is  situated, at a cost of $75,000.

Operating Costs-The operation of the pool is vested in  the District who shall be  responsible for the accounting  function.

Never over cook fish. It ruins its naturally sweet,  delicate flavour. Most fish will flake easily at  the gentle touch of a fork when done.  Care must be taken when handling fish. Use a  rack frame or a hinged wire broiler. Always oil  the grill rack, foil, etc., otherwise the fish will  stick and may come apart. Handle the fish as little  as possible. Use a sharp edged spatula, one turn  per fish steak should do it. Allow 7 minutes  total cooking for a 11nch steak or fillet, 15 minutes  for a 2 Inch cut.  A good trick when broiling fish Is to sprinkle  herbs, such as thyme, dill or fennel on the coals.  Then use a simple Baste, butter with a hint of  lemon.  MARINATED SALMON STEAKS  2 lbs. salmon steaks  Marinade:  1 cup oil and vinegar dressing  Make an oil and vinegar salad dressing with  no seasoning. Combine with lemon juice, paprika,  salt and pepper. Dip steaks In cold, salted water  and pat dry. Marinate for 30 minutes, turning  after 15 minutes. Barbecue 4 Inches over medium-  hot coals. Baste several times with marinade.  Cook about 10 minutes, turning once. Fish is done  when It flakes easily with a fork. Serves 6-8.

The game was  controlled throughout by the  Wanderers Club, however  the home team's inability to  put the ball in the net, a  problem encountered all year  by Elphinstone forwards,  led to their defeat. During  regulation time, Graham  Chapman had an opportunity  to put the home club ahead  1-0 on a penalty shot awarded  when Robbie Williams was  fouled, but the Underwriter  goalkeeper, who played an  outstanding game made a  good save on the play. The  Underwriters scored S straight  penalty shots to 4 for the  Wanderers, with Duncan  Campbell, Stevey Miles,  Robbie Williams and Joey  Sauver connecting for the  home team. Lex Tierney  missed the net on his opportunity for the Wanderers.

On Sunday, the first game  of the day proved to be the  most exciting game of the  tournament for the Renegades. They met with the  Sliammon Sounders of Powell  River and played a tight  game that ended in a 3-3  tie. Instead of going into  overtime play the referee  chose to go into penalty  shots with 5 players chosen  from each team. Final score  ended with a victory for the  Sliammon Sounders over the  Renegades with a 4-3 score.  Renegades last game was  once  again   played  against  Above is the top team of all the Gibsons Bowling  Leagues pictured after winning the local Tournament  of League Champions.

The Chiefs  took the Renegades by surprise by scoring first early  in the game. Before the first  half ended the Renegades had  evened the score to 1-1.  Second half brought another  victory for the Renegades;  final score 3-2.  All stars were chosen by  the referees and the coaches  of the 11 teams that participated in the Tournament.  Tony Paul was picked best  goalie. Other all-star trophies  went to Darren Dixon, Ernie  Dixon and Vern Joe, who  also received a trophy for  scoring thc most goals.

Since  the animal showed no intentions of leaving, he had no  choice but to shoot it.  The animal was in pretty  bad shape. It looked like it  had been quite a while since  its last meal. Bob contacted  Jamie Stephens the Conservation Officer to see if he had  any anwers.  From what Jamie told me,  the animal was quite young. It  didn't seem to have anything  wrong with it except starvation, and had possibly been  chased out of its territory  by a dominant cat, so was  living off the lean of the land.  Ravens.

One of the pictures with this  column may seem a bit gory  for the squeamish, but  it was something neither I nor  the conservation officer had  heard of before. It's the picture ofa heron hanging upside  down (unfortunately dead)  from a tree. Jamie Stephen  found it out by Angus Creek.  The only explanation he could  come up with was that it had  slipped, caught its leg in the  fork of two branches and was  unable to free itself. Has  anyone ever heard of this  happening before? it's  new one on me.  New Fisheries Officer.  It looks like Lawrence  Chambers, the replacement  for Ray Kraft is going to be  keeping a watchful eye  out. He checked out a group ot  fishermen on May 2nd, and  found that they had a total of  78 salmon in die cooler in the  back of their .truck, that's  22 over the posession limit.  It looks like the recent good  fishing we've been having  provided too great a temptation for them. The fish  and fishing gear was seized,  plus there will be a court  appearance in June.  Odds'n ends.  Well as you can see, the  picture taken by John Hobson,  of the seven pelicans at Snake  Bay in Sechelt Inlet turned  out. I had to take the picture  from a slide, and so lost a bit  of the detail. In the original  you can see the nob on the  upper part of the beak, they  get this during breeding season. Well, even though - in  my judgement - the picture  won't be too clear once it ends  8 Come cry  up in the paper, the slide is  clear enough that you can  make the birds out easily.  Well done John, you not only  got the first sighting that we  know about but you also got  proof positive.  Bears seem to be coming  into the news again, I hope  they have the good sense  to stay in the bush this year.

About 90 per-cent of the  businesses in Canada employ  fewer than 200 people.

"The small business is  subject to pressures that are  unknown to large corporations," says Skelly. They must  respond more quickly than  thc corporations to changing  market circumstances and  they are denied financial,  managerial, and technical  benefits that the corporations  take for granted.  It is in these latter three  areas, Skelly says, that small  businesses have a number of  problems in common ��� all of  them critical.  "The small businessman is  particularly vulnerable to  cash flow problems, particularly in the start-up period," says Skelly. "Another  problem is his frequent difficulty in arranging satisfacory  bank loans."  Skelly stated that neither  The Small Businessman's  Loan Act, nor The Federal  Business Development Bank  have been adequate to alleviate the difficulties facing  the small business.  The Small Business Loans  Act guarantees a loan made  to a small business but only  if the lending institution  agrees to loan the money  at a lower rate of interest than  that which must be paid by  the average borrower.  What is more, the Small  Business Loan Act has a  $75,000 ceiling which Skelly  says is too low for all but the  smallest business. Finally,  nothing in The Small Business  Act obliges the bank or  lending institution to loan  the money.  Skelly is also critical of the  Federal Business Development Bank. "Most small  business spokesmen will  tell you that The Federal  Development Bank has been  of little help," he said.  "Like the traditional  private sector lenders, this  federal agency has operated  under a policy of excessive  caution," Skelly says.  In addition to the persistent  problems associated with the  securing of credit, the small  business man suffers in  another area. "The domination of large areas of our  economy by the large corporations has made it difficult for small businesses to  have access to managerial  and    technical    expertise,"  said Skelly.  The result has been a disproportionately high number  of bankruptcies by small  businesses, mostly in the first  six years of operation when  the need for advice and credit  are at their most critical.  Skelly contends that thc  big business corporations  have been using a combination of inequitable tax breaks  and financial clout to systematically eliminate small  businesses for many years  now. The result has been  an increasing domination  of our economy by foreigners  and a handful of mammoth  Canadian enterprises.  Skelly points to the record  breaking profits enjoyed by  major retailers operating in  Canada together with the  increasingly high costs  that confront the Canadian  consumer as to what can happen when the small business  sector of the economy is  hobbled in its attempt to provide a vigorous competitive  alternative.  Because of the inestimable  benefit to the Canadian  economy provided by the  small business both in terms  of providing effective compe  tition and keeping smaller  Canadian centres economically vital, Skelly says that  an N.D.P. government  would make assistance to  the small businessman a  priority.  "The Federal Business  Development Bank would bc  instructed to increase thc  amounts which it lends to  small businessmen and without thc traditional forms of  collateral," he said.  In addition, he stated that  an N.D.P. government would  insure that a substantial  portion of government spending for goods and services  be directed to sniall businesses.  A temporary economic  stimulus would be provided  by offering employment tax  credits to labour intensive  firms, which most sniall  businesses tend lo be. "These  would be introduced to balance capital investment ta,x  concessions which frequently  result in firms purchasing  machines' and eliminating  labour", hesaid.  "Finally," Skelly says, "An  N.D.P. government would nol  ignore its obligation to the  small business and make  available marketing, technical  and managerial expertise at  critical periods ol' the firm's  development."
