 UBRABtf  The Sunshine  Published at Gibsons, B.C.  15�� per copy on newsstands  Serving the Sunshine Coast since 1945  July 11,1978  Volume 31, Number 28  ���bWC v i"i  Hydro preparing to ram line through  By the Pender Harhour  Publicity Committee  cS  Distriel Ratepayers Association  Hydro because whatever version  of the facts they happen to be  handing out at the moment,  they insist that it's beyond question, but then the nest time we  talk it's been changed. Different  groups get different stories.  Hydro has not done anything  to enhance its credibility in this  matter."  Ratepayers Secretary Howard  White described Hydro's method  of planning the line "section by  secion" as "phoney". "The  way they're doing it, first they  went to Squamish, and got it all  okayed there. Then they came  to us. They want to settle it with  The long-running Cheekeye-Diinsiiiitire powerline debate  has now established two things:  1. That there is no inescapable reason lor the enormous  damage the proposed double 5(10 kV transmission corridor  would do to the landscape of thc Sechelt Peninsula. Thc lines  can be routed elsewhere, further away from people and further  aw ay from land which is valuable for other uses.  2. That Hydro is gearing up to push their lines through the  Sechell Peninsula anyway on a "full speed ahead and damn thc  torpedoes" basis.  These two essential points have become clear since the  "Open House Meeting" held by Hydro in Madeira Park June  17. The theme of that meeting, as repeatedly stated by Hydro  Project Manager Billy Ellis, was Ihat Hydro has run out of time  and the project must go ahead without further delay if il is to us so they can go on to Texada  be completed in time lo meet Vancouver Island's needs. Ellis and Vancouver Island and hash  said there was one major industrial project in particular that is it out with the people there. If  being held up because Hydro can't provide it with the power it they were really so short of time  needs. "What are we going to say to the people who need you'd think they'd do all the sec-  those .100 jobs that are being held up?" Ellis asked. Another tions at once. Theyjan't accuse  Hydro engineer told a recent convention of Illuminating Engineers on Vancouver Island that Island residents would be  facing brownouts within five years if "environmentalists"  were successful in stopping or delaying Hydro's plans for new  power supplies. The planned sources were described as thc  twin 500 kV lines scheduled for completion by 1983 and a nuclear power plant planned for 1993. Ellis said personnel in  charge of the powerline project were starting to get  "pressure" from Hydro higher-ups "coming to us and saying,  'hey, when are you guys going to get going on that thing?' "  Full of this newfound urgency,   Hydro of "trying to ram its plans  Ellis displayed impatience bord  cring on ill-temper dealing with  any sustained argument against  the line. "We've spent two  years talking to you people about  this project," he fumed at one  point. "People keep coming to us  and asking us to look at things  we've looked at before, and we  agree, we go over it again and  come to the same conclusions.  We can't keep this up indefinitely. We've got to get on  with the job." He said there  would be no more public meetings on the issue unless they  were held "very soon".  Ellis' claims were rejected  at a joint meeting of Sakinaw  Lake Property Owners and the  Area 'A' A.P.C. July 1. Regional Director Joe Harrison accused  through using this scare story  about brownouts as an excuse."  Harrison denied that there had  been two years of consultation.  "It might have been two years  ago that they first contacted  the Regional District, but at that  time they said the lines would  follow the Wood Bay route, well  away from settled areas and  completely out of sight of the  travelling public. Then we didn't  hear from them for over a year,  when they popped up with  completely changed and completely unacceptable plans  last fall. They've changed  other things as well. They've  changed their power-demand  forecast for Vancouver Island  three times. It is very difficult  to have meaningful dealings with  us of holding the ifiing up because it's their own idea to do it  section by section like this.They  seem to be more concerned about  keeping opposition groups from  getting together than they are  about saving time. They tried to  clamp a .10-day limit on public discussion last fall and the current  hurry-up is just another one of  their P.R.tactics."  Apart from the claim that they  don't have time to look into  them, Hydro has been unable to  convincingly discredit the two  major alternative routes which  people of the area have put forward.  The Vancouver Bay route  first advanced by A.P.C. member  Don McNaughton and since inspected by helicopter, was found  to be free of obstacles by local  geologist Bruce Woodsworth,  and grudgingly accepted as  "marginally usable" by Hydro  geologist Carl Ricker. It actually  appears to be more favourable  than the territory between Wood-  fibre and Salmon Inlet, which  is part of Hydro's recommended  route, and it is instructive to  take comments Hydro applied  to the route it favours and com-  These little clowns were most active last weekend promoting the Roberts  Creek Daze which will take place this coming weekend.  Sechelt Village Council  Three bids were invited  by the Sechelt Municipality  for the drainage contract in  the village. At Wednesday  night's Council meeting two  quotes were read. Don Mac  bid $38,527 for concrete pipes  and $39,500 for corrugated  metal ones. B.A.Blacktop's  bids were, $39,350 and  $41,500.  In addition Don Mac offered  a savings of $2.00 per foot if  imported bedding was not  required; $1.00 per foot if  testing was not needed; and  $1,000 reduction if they did  not have to do patching, The  company also suggested that  if the village wished, they  could work on a cost plus  basis. Don Mac was awarded  the contract.  There was also discussion  about the upcoming paving  between Cowrie and Boulevard. B.A.Blacktop quoted  $12,600 for a 40-foot pavement. Some concern was  expressed over the condition  of the wooden culvert presently installed, but Alderman  Thompson assured the members that it had been handling heavy traffic and was  suitable.   He moved that the  price of $12,600 be accepted,  It was noted during the  acceptance of the minutes  that Alderman Jorgensen  had been slated to serve on  the economic study committee. This was corrected to  read Alderman Leitner.  Alderman Jorgensen reported that the application  for arena funds from the  Regional Board had been  deferred until the Regional  referendum.  The firm of Kerr and Associates were recommended to  be retained to make application for airport assistance.  pare them to comments it applied  to the route the A.P.C. favours.  Hydro's preferred route has a  section along Howe Sound characterized by "steep bluffs inaccessible except by helicopter,"  but this is dismissed by saying  "since there are already 138  kV lines through thc area one can  assume a 500 kV line could also  be erected," (Beak Report, p.  75). The Vancouver Bay route is  serviced almost its entire length  by good logging roads, but there  is one pass with no pre-existing  access, although Ricker agrees  a road could be built in to it.  In spite of this, the route is  dismissed as "inaccessible,"  (Report K4240A p.7). At another  part of Hydro's preferred route  it is noted "there are avalanche  tracks but they can be spanned  by judicious tower placement,"  (Beak Report p. 75). The A.P.C.  route also crossed some areas  which Ricker claimed had avalanche tracks although Woods-  worth said they were so small and  inactive as to be insignificant.  Nevertheless Ricker stated in his  report to Hydro, "from the outline of avalanche tracks it appears  the route is unsafe," (Report  K4240A p. 7). Ricker also gives  a long lecture about thc dangers  of taking "a major transmission  line through a heavy coastal  snow belt at Alpine elevations,"  and recommends snowfall  studies be performed before  considering the route further ���  but where Hydro's preferred  route goes through similarly  high country near Henriette  Lake there is no mention of  snow studies (Beak Report p.  75).  After arguing the comparative  merits of the routes over a  long period, A.P.C. member  Don McNaughton said, "if they  don't want to go someplace, no  matter how good it is, they'll  find reasons against it. And if  they want to go some place, it's  the other way around. You  can't win."  The other major alternative  involves crossing from the Reception Point area directly to  Vancouver Island across the wide  part of Georgia Strait. This route  was previously rejected because  Hydro thought it could only go  seven miles underwater, but now  there appears to be complete  agreement by all Hydro departments that this would be the  most troublefree and advantageous route of all. The lines  could be brought to water without crossing any occupied land,  and while there may be some  conflict bringing it ashore on  Vancouver Island, Hydro faces  this problem no matter what  route is followed. There has also  been a suggestion the line could  be buried for the part below thc  Island Highway. The one obstacle to the route is a Department of National Defense War  Please turn to Page 12  Ernie Davies of Hopkins Landing makes a  point at the public meeting held to discuss  a possible marine pub for Hopkins Landing  last week. The meeting was opposed to a  pub. As Davies said, "We'd rather lose a  store than gain a pub."  No pub in Hopkins?  "Instead of helping to  drink Hopkins dry, leave us  alone with a dry Hopkins."  These words from Gibsons  Village Planner, Bob Buchan,  reflected the feelings of those  present at Langdale School  on Thursday, July 6 for a  public meeting to discuss the  proposal for an "F" license  marine pub on the site of the  present Hopkins Store.  Area "F" Representative,  Bernie Mulligan, opened the  meeting with a presentation  from the developers, Maurice  Girard and Bill Edney. It  was explained by Girard that  Ihe present business was not  a money-making proposition,  whereas a small pub with  marine facilities would be  commercially viable.  Doctor Bland, speaking on  behalf of the Hopkins Landing  Community Association,  told those assembled of a  petition that had begun circulation two days before,  which already had over eighty  signatures protesting the pub.  He felt that the area stood to  gain nothing and lose a lot  if the pub was allowed. He  went on to say that such an  establishment would increase  the noise level, the potential  for boating accidents would  be great, garbage would  become a problem, and  there would be a danger of  accidents at the tricky coner  onto the main highway above  the store.  Bob Buchan stated that the  picturesque idea of an English Pub was a fallacy and that  that country now has the highest percentage of alcoholics  in the civilized world. A  marine pub he felt would  take away from the rural  atmosphere of the area.  Most of the residents close  to the store moved to Hopkins  to retire, and as such wanted  the present ��� tranquility to  continue. A neighbouring  property owner. Mr. Ernie  Davies, explained that it was  with no animosity that they  were protesting the liquor  establishment, it was simply  that they wanted to preserve  their way of life. "The  Edneys," he said, "are  respected and appreciated  by the community, and I  hope that this is not taken  personally."  In summing up, Director  Mulligan explained that the  meeting had been so that he  could gauge the public  feeling toward the proposal,  and he would take his findings  back to the Regional Board.  Dogfish Derby  footnotes  President of the Gibsons and District Chamber of Commerce.  Jon McRae. was loud in his praise of those who  helped make the Second Annual Gibsons World Championship  Dogfish Derby such a resounding success on July 2.  Singled out by thc Chamber of Commerce President were the  co-sponsors of the event, SuperValu and Molson's Brewery.  Others whose participation helped contribute to the success of  the Dogfish Derby were the C.B.C, Beachcombers crew generally and series stars Bruno Gerussi and Robert Clothier in  particular.  Authors Ted Peck and Russ Mohney were also mentioned by  McRae, along wilh Norpac Foods, who took away thc dogfish  catch; Toledo Scales, who provided the means of weighing  them; marine biologist Rick Smith, who aged them; thc Boy  Scouts; the Navy League; Ihe Fire Department; the Lions Club;  the Curling Rink people; anil a host of others who pitched in  with their time and energy.  One of the new features ol thc Dogfish Derby this year was  the trophy given for the oldest dogfish caught. Andy Solinsky  of Gibsons was the trophy winner when his fish was aged at  48 years. The trophy, an Inscribed pewter mug, was provided  by the Charles English Really company and said. "From the  oldest realtors for the oldest dogfish",  Most of the 2���3 pounds fish caught were already from ten  to twelve years old. Dogfish tlon't have young until they arc  about twenty-five years old and carry Iheir young for two  years.  Coast News wins  national award  The Sunshine Cout Newt learned on Saturday that In the  Better Newspapers Competition for 1977 organized by the  Canadian Community Newspaper Association, It had lied for  tint place In Canada with the Goderkh Signal Star of Ontario  In the category of Beat Editorial Page. II la believed lo be the  first lime lhal a Sunshine Comal newspaper has been so recognized In national competition.  The awards will be presented to the Coasl News si Ihe annual  convention of Ihe Canadian Community Association which Ihis  year will be held In Vancouver al the Vancouver Hotel.   New marina  plans unveiled  The Marina Committee, under ihe chairmanship of Gibsons  Alderman Larry Trainor. lasl week unveiled the up-dated plans  for the proposed marina in Gibsons Harbour. Unlike previous  plans which called lor the marina lo be in Ihe middle of the bay  in Gibsons Harbour, the present plans call for it (o be constructed parallel to the shore extending approximately 1,300 feel  from Armour's Beach to the Governmeni Wharf.  Entrance to the marina would he from the Government  Wharf side with road access down lhc roadway by the old pool  hall. There would be an emergency vehicle entrance from the  Armour's Beach side. Additional access from the water would  be provided by a break in the fixed breakwater just opposite  Hill's Machine Shop. Besides allowing access to thc Machine  Shop such an entrance would allow tidal flushing action to take  place.  The study was prepared for the village council by Mitch  Babkowski of Victoria Engineering Ltd. and calls for parking  sites for automobiles to be constructed from rip-rap materials  obtained in the dredging of the marine portion of thc complex.  The reclaimed land would provide a projected 222 parking  spaces; this is thirty-four more spaces than is required hy  the number of wharf fingers involved.  The fixed breakwater is so designed that expansion of thc  marina at a future date would be possible. The first two sections to be completed, from Armour's Beach to a point almost  opposite Jack's Lane, would provide wharfage for 375 boats.  The expansion would take place between Jack's Lane and thc  Government Wharf.  The committee will now discuss the plans with thc village  planning committee and thc village planner. If the concept  proves satisfactory to the village council land survey of the sea  bottom of the area will be undertaken. Committee members  estimated that if everything goes smoothly March 1979 could  see construction getting underway. Eventually moorage  could be available for 553 berths.  At present 170 applications have been received. It is  estimated that the feasibility of the project would bc without  question if between 200 and 250 applications are received.  Three of the applications at present on hand are from Turkey.  Halifax and Calgary.  Gibsons pub  dispute continues  Gibsons Council at their regular meeting held on Tuesday,  July 4, heard petitions from lawyer Robert Reid and John Smith  concerning the go-ahead given on the Janowsky application for  a marine pub license. Both Reid and Smith were questioning  the fact that Janowsky was able to get prc-clearance from the  Liquor Administration Branch in four days while they have  not been able to get prc-clearance in almost three months.  Underlying the dis-satisfaction is thc fact that a member of  the Janowsky group is a close associate of the cabinet minister  Rafe Mair under whose jurisdiction liquor licensing falls.  In his presentation to coun- eral Manager of thc Liquor  cil, Bob Reid reminded thc Administration Branch,  councilors that the final de- Reid made specific refer-  cision in the matter of thc loca- ence to thc political nature of  tion of the marine pub is up the situation.

(*CN/  Award  It is. of course, extremely gratifying  for the people who work for this newspaper that the Coast News in its first  year under present management should  be awarded first place in a national  competition for quality newspapers. At  the same time such recognition is no  more than the lovely area which we  serve deserves,  And indeed, the Sunshine Coast is no  stranger to award winning. The jam  factory which used to operate on Henry  Road won not national but international  recognition for the quality of its products.  A few years ago the Driftwood Players  were regularly winning provincial competitions and might have done well  nationally if B.C. had been a member of  the Dominion Drama Association.  We are sure that there are numerous  other examples where individuals or  groups brought distinction to the area  and would welcome any information from  our readers about such individual or  groups and the awards they won. This is  an area to be proud of and those of us  fortunate enough to call it home can be  forgiven for being so.  Favouritism  It would appear from this vantage point  that the provincial government is making  a blatant attempt to show favouritism in  the case of the marine pub application.  The speed with which the Janowsky  application was processed coupled with  the latest information from Victoria  which says that no further pre-clcarances  are possible until the Janowsky application has been dealt with would seem to  indicate that the provincial licensing  authority is doing everything in its power  to usurp the right of the village council  to make the decision about where the pub  should be built.  The other applicants are not asking  for favouritism. They want all  four applications to be accorded equal  treatment. There are available examples  of situations where pre-clearances for  sites were granted simultaneously and  competition thrown open. That is all  that is being sought here, fair and  equal treatment for all.  It has been suggested that the village  council should declare a ninety day  moratorium before proceeding to ensure  that all applicants get a hearing. It is a  good suggestion. If the village council  allows itself to be pushed in the direction  of the provincial government's choosing  it stands to lose all credibility with the  people of the community. Justice must  not only be done but be seen to be  done.  Applause  We heartily applaud the Regional  Board's decision to contest Hydro's  decision to use herbicides on the power-  line above Pender Harbour in every  possible way up to and including court  injunction. The appeal to the Pesticide  Control Branch is the first and obvious  step. Mr. Baynes Vance said that this  area would assuredly get thorough consideration in the event of an application  by Hydro to use herbicides because of the  concern expressed at the community  forum he attended. Mr. Vance, it is  time now for that consideration.  Should Mr. Vance fail us as provincial  bureaucrats have a way of doing once  they are safely back in Victoria then we  must to the courts. The Sunshine Coast  versus B.C.Hydro is a David and Goliath  confrontation and we know how the  original match up came out. You're  never beaten until you think you are.  Mascot  The Sunshine Coast News has a new  mascot. It's a little brown hamster that  came down to model for an advertisement on behalf of Unicorn Pets V  Plants. It was an instant success in the  office and looks like it will be a permanent  fixture.  "What should we call it?" said sweet  Cynthia, our typesetter.   "What do you  call little hamsters?"  "Hamlets," said Bruce Wilson back in  action as the resident wit of the back  shop.  The hamster was a female so Ophelia  she became. She's an eccentric little  number. We think she'll be right at  home.  Art Show  Any residents of thc Sunshine Coast in  town for a meal and a show would be well  advised to stop in at the Canvas Company  restaurant on Davie at Seymour. The  food is good and there is on display a  remarkable variety of work by Sunshine  Coast artists, glassworkers, and sculptors. Besides having a first rate meal  you will be proud of the work of your  fellow Sunshine Coasters, not least  among them the Coast News' own Veronica Plewman. It's worth a visit.  from the files of Coast News  5 YEARS AGO  The School Board announces that  teachers and students attending  Elphinstone Secondary School will  go on a double shift system starting  in September. The action was necessitated by the fire which partially  destroyed the secondary school.  More than fifty members ol Sechelt  Indian Drum and Bugle Band travelled to Southern California recently  to give a special performance at  Disneyland.  Mayor Ben Lang of Sechelt announces that he will not seek re-election  after his current term is served.  Rivtow Straits Limited in conjunction with Seaway Estates Ltd.,  proposes to take Sechelt's swamp  area in Porpoise Bay and turn it  into a man-made attractive lake-  shore with lots fronting it.  10 YEARS AGO  Not available.  15 YEARS AGO  Gibsons Council has passed a  bylaw which will give the village  possession of the former Gibsons  Memorial Church property so it can  be made into a park in perpetuity.  Sechelt School Board has been  asked   to   ascertain   how   $45,000  school taxation on Canadian Forest  Products' new construction for 1962  was diverted into a provincial fund  instead of to the credit of Sechelt  School district.  20 YEARS AGO  Port Mellon First Aid Team won  the Workmen's Compensation  Board Provincial First Aid Totem in  competition with six teams, all  champions in their own areas.  Gibsons Village commissioners  decided to purchase two street  signs at $15 each out of their own  pocket to gauge what public reaction  would be.  Seventy men from the Sechelt  Peninsula fought a forest fire about  seventy miles up the Sechelt Inlet  at Misery Creek.  25 YEARS AGO  The Sechelt Rod and Gun Club  came into existence by an organization meeting held Sunday at Selma  Lodge.  Long-time residents Stewart  Luckie Henderson of Wilson Creek  and Henry King of Gibsons passed  away this week.  30YEARSAGO  Not available.  "ON THE ROAD TO GOWER POINT" is the caption Helen  McCall used about 1930 to identify this scene. The camera  shows Chaster Road westward from about where King Road  now branches off it. Until not long before the time of this picture, when a road around Gospel Rock had been pushed  through, this was the only access to Gower Point. During the  "Hungry Thirties" the provincial government offered $20 a  month "relief" to man and wife when no employment was  available. Following their weddings, so many young couples  built homes here to avoid city rent that it became known colloquially as "Honeymoon Lane". Perhaps, if all goes well  with this nostalgic avenue, widening and upgrading, while  removing summer dust and winter mud, will allow it to retain  some of the erstwhile charm that lured both photographer and  honeymooners to It.

L.R.Peterson  Well I'm taking my questionable courage and screwing  it, as Lady Macbeth or her  husband said, to the sticking  point next week. I'm going to  step aboard an airplane.  I wrote a column once  upon a time about my devout  cowardice and in it I let fall  the information that I have no  head for heights. It has been  a thorn in my side all my  life for to this day I love  clambering and climbing,  cliffs or trees. The actual  physical business of climbing  delights me but inevitably I  get up the magical distance  and the old imagination takes  over and turns me from a  sure-footed if somewhat  scrawny goat into a paralyzed whimpering lump of  total ineffectually.  It seems to me that the  magic height is about twenty  feet or so. Anything above  that and I become a candidate  for Air, Sea Rescue.  Coupled with thc foregoing  is the fact that I am possibly  the second worst passenger  in the world in anything. My  brother is the worst. I was  driving him through Montreal one time when I had to  stop and give him thc wheel  because he had brought mc  to the point of nervous collapse with thc level of his  anxiety.  Now I'm not quite that bad  but it is sure that I sit beside  very few people happily in  an automobile when I'm not  the driver, it's a bit of a nuisance for about the only blasphemies that anybody takes  seriously these days occurs  when their sense of humour,  their sexiness, or their ability  to drive an automobile is  questioned.  Now when you link these  two neurotic aspects in one  personality you will not produce an airline's model passenger. The first flight I  ever took I approached with  a fearless and cocky brash-  ness. I made such a fuss  about being the first member  of the family to fly that,  while we were waiting as  one does at the airport, my  Uncle Will took my mother  up for a fifteen minute flight  in a tiny plane and stole my  thunder.  I don't know when the terror started, but I do know  that as I grow older it gets  worse. The last time I flew  to Scotland my friend Brad  Hope fully filled me up with  thoughts of imminent disaster, whisky and other assorted goodies but despite all  that could be consumed and  said I was in a state of total  panic by the time 1 was trundled aboard the plane. I  did something I rarely do.  I whopped out a sheet of  paper and began rambling a  paranoid letter ��� I never  write letters, haven't for years'  ��� to Peter Trower back in  Gibsons I suppose because he  seemed in my delirious state  to be the person best equipped  to understand such paranoia.  I never mailed the letter  but delivered it by hand on  my return from Scotland. It  was interrupted in the middle when the stewardess  asked me if I wanted wine  with my dinner. I gibbered  something like, "Let me  understand this. As far as I  can judge il's midnight and we  arc in broad daylight about  35,000 feet above the North  Pole and you arc asking if I  want wine with my dinner."  She smiled soothingly, pulled  my little tray down, tucked  my bib around my neck and  suddenly 1 had regressed to  the age of two and was sitting in a high chair being  tended to. I immediately  fell in love with her in an  abject, dependent sort of  way.  To say, then, that 1 have  taken the decision to entrust  myself to one of those giant  metal crates of anonymity  wherein the only contact with  the pilot is a faceless and  metallic voice which uncon-  vincingly attempts to make me  feel that everything about  being seven miles up in the air  is ordinary and routine and  not to be worried about.  That's a man up there somewhere, I say lo myself. He  may be separating from his  wife or have a bad heart or  just be hungover today. I  think and quake and swallow  my Dutch courage eagerly.  If there were but money  enough and time I would  never go near an airport.    I  would travel in leisurely  and luxurious fashion by train  and boat and contemplate the  going with sweet serenity.  Airplanes are for looking at  when they fly overhead and  only then if you feel like  looking and there isn't a bird  around.  lt will, 1 presume, have  been gathered that something  extraordinary is a>ming up  to tempt this pigeon-hearted  poltroon, this musing milksop, this querulous craven  again aloft. And so it is. I  am going on holiday to Dawson City.  After ten vears away 1  am going back to the confluence of the Klondike and  Yukon Rivers, back to that  ancient and unglaciated  plateau where the part-time  creeks have carved the landscape into rounded and permanently frozen gravel hills  which seem to stretch forever.  There arc roads and trails and  vistas there that I walked  all the days and temperatures  of thc year and I love them  dearly.  There are people there,  notably my beloved Art and  Margie Fry now busy at thc  height of their gold mining  season but wc will find  time to talk and time also for  me to wrest away from them  and bring back to thc coast  the Yukon Territorial Hearts  Playing Championship.  Time for us lo be old friends.  There is not money enough  and time to travel by boat  and train. I have six times  driven the monstrous Alaska  Highway. It starts at Dawson  Creek in the far north east  corner of B.C. and winds  interminably west and north.  Twelve hundred miles of gravel road to Dawson City. I  have vowed never to drive it  again.  And so it is I take a plane.  Leaving behind the cluttered and incomprehensible  desk in the Coast News office  which has been my daily  altar for the past eighteen  months, mastering my irrational terror as best I can,  off to see a place and some  people I love.  I'll tell you something about  it when I get back.  Slings & Arrows  George Matthews  How would you like to  spend five days a week driving around in sturdy, powerful little machines bumping  into things like on those  car rides at Funland; run  around on floating, Sargaso  islands; make death-defying  leaps from one water borne  zone of terra ftrma to another;  discover secrets to magic  gateways; learn to negotiate  labyrinths and mazes; steer  indestructable boats through  unpredictable obstacle courses and, on top of it all, do it  for as long as you want and  get paid for it? That is what  your average boom man  does every day, all year  long; except when he is forced  to take two days off each  week for those mandatory  weekends.  The boom man is to Gibsons  what the logger is to Sechelt ��� the heart, the soul,  the character of the community. The essential connection  is symbolized every year in  Sechelt's celebration of  Timber Days in May and  Gibsons' celeberation of Sea  Cavalcade in August. A more  fascinating contrast of character couldn 't be imagined.  The logger is a communicator. He talks about his  work. He explains, then re-  explains to the greenhorn,  then says it all over again.  Then he lets you try it and if  you don't get it right, meaning  the way the loggers have done  that thing for a hundred  years, then he explains and  re-explains again until you  have it.  Loggers have heroes.  They have a concept of the  ultimate logger. They praise  skill and expertise, they admire the craftsmanship of  their trade.  On the job and off- loggers  talk logging. They have  developed complex, sophisticated, often bizarre and  sometimes humourous ways  of letting each other know  what's going on. They communicate with radios, electronic horns, hand signals,  voices and a highly developed, exceptionally colourful vocabulary.  The work they do goes in  fits and starts. Sudden outbursts of intense activity are  followed by brief lulls.  Strength, speed, quickness  and agility are essential.  There are no slow, clumsy  loggers. Their work is also  exceptionally routinized and  hierarchic. Everyone knows  his function, knows what is  expected. They work as a  synchronized and co-ordinated  unit structured on distinct and  unquestioned lines of authority. The work is also extremely dangerous.  Boom men on the other  hand are the anarchists and  individualists of the work  world. First of all, they  shun, avoid and apparently  dislike communication. They  tend not to talk about booming  or log sorting off the job, and,  for that matter, on the job.  What communication there is  is subtle and unapparent to  the untrained eye as the bidder's motions at an auction.  An imperceptible nod, a slight  turn of the head, a raised  eyebrow, a finger on thumb  raised minutely and when all  else fails and there's no way  around it, a brief word or two.  A boom man is expected to  know what comes next, what  the order of priorities of the  job is; like chess, he knows  not only what to do next, but  ten or twenty moves along,  all with a minimum of communication.  Thc boom man has no  occupational heroes except  the power, speed and man-  oeuverability of his boat.  He shows an amazing ability  to make his machines do his  work for him.  The boom man's conversation, usually witty and intelligent, revolves around the  three unmentionables of  polite discourse: sex, politics,  and religion; but never, at  least in my brief experience,  booming.  The work itself is slowed,  moderated, calmed, made  elegant and graceful by the  omnipresent medium of  water. Grace, skill, technique replace the "go ahead  on her" approach of the  logger. The work is often  hard, requiring incredible  upper body strength and agility, plucking immense chains  out of the depths as though  they were no more than errant  flotsam. (Boom men are  physically different than  loggers. Where the logger  is lean, hard and often on the  smallish side, the boom man  tends to concentrate his  physical being in his massive  neck, chest, shoulders and  arms, no doubt because he  uses his arms for lifting  heavy weights but saves his  legs by moving by boat.)  There are no side hills on the  booming grounds.  On the surface, though  clearly not in reality, the boom  man's work seems to centre  around the man and his  boat. Everyone starts out in  the morning, often without  clear, spoken directions, and  begins his task and by some  unspoken, almost mystical  force, the work proceeds towards its objective.  Boom men are given and  accept great individual  responsibility. Their work is  such that communication is  difficult and therefore has  become largely unnecessary.  They work hard and have  great skill.  Finally, one great difference  exists in the fact that boom  men live at home while loggers generally live in camp.  Which of these groups of  men is the more admirable?  I don't know. But I have it on  the authority of those who  claim to know about such  things that boom men make  better lovers.

As a longtime personal friend  of Gary Powers and an active  participant in the U-2 programme  from its inception to its cancellation, 1 know I'm qualified to  set lhc record straight.  I. The name is Francis Gary  Powers, nol Gary Francis.  2..Gary Powers did not die last  week as the article stated; he  was killed in July 1977.  3. Hc never carried a cyanide  pill.  4. The pilots' ' never were  ordered or even "Suggested to  commit suicide. The means was  provided but for a different  reason. Thc over flights crossed  vast unpopulated areas and  should they crash and become  seriously injured with no hope of  rescue, they had thc choice  of suicide to a possible slow  slow agonizing death or torture  if captured.  5. Gary's wife did not leave  him because of embarrassment.  Barbara Powers developed a  serious drinking and other  problems. She was far from  being an "all-American girl".  Tiiey were separated and on the  verge of divorce long before his  capture. In thc end, he left her  and remarried.  6. The editor gives the impression that Gary returned to the  United States in disgrace,  drummed out of the Air Force,  shunned by his government and  fellow countrymen, unable to  find a job. Not so. Gary left the  Air Force by choice (as did most  of the pilots) and on return  immediately went to work for  Lockheed Aircraft Corporation  in Burbank, California as a chief  test pilot and doing what he  loved most ��� flying U-2's.  He continued with Lockheed and  the U-2 programme for over  ten years until the military  phase-out of the U-2's. He then  chose to work for the radio  station.  7. None of his government  superiors, business associates  or friends felt any ill wilt toward  Gary for not committing suicide.  We never expected him to.  8. The U-2 programme was  recognized as the "most successful reconnaissance, espionage  project in history", lt was conducted during the "cold war"  by a select group of dedicated  technical experts who sustained  an "esprit de corps" throughout  a world-wide network that  may never be equalled.  Discrediting the programme by  implying sinister, inhumane  suicide plots is "cheap shot"  journalism and totally a figment  of the editor's imagination.  Francis Gary Powers was a  courageous, honorable and patriotic man respected by all who  knew him. He certainly does not  deserve the ridicule heaped on  him by an editor with a great  zeal to criticize, but little apparent interest in seeking the  truth.  In the future, before he expounds so vehemently on this  subject, I suggest that the editor  take the time to read "Operation  Over Flighl" by Francis Gary  Powers.  Bill Keim.  Garden Bay, B.C.

"Are you lookin"?" shifty-  looking characters would hiss  from shadowy corner-tables.  Fortunately. I never was.  I've picked up a good many  bad habits in my time but  shooting-junk was never one  of them. Over the years  however. I came to know a  substantial number of heroin-  addicts, sometimes to my  detriment.  When my friends and I  first began frequenting thc  shady side of town, we were  dead-ignorant about drugs.  There wasn't even much about  them in the papers at that  time. The availability of  heroin in Vancouver was  largely a post-War phenomenon and the number of addicts  was relatively small in comparison with today. The first  junkies I met were through  my erstwhile gang-moll  girlfriend. Dot Shannon.  Dot didn't use dope herself  but several of the eastend kids  with whom she'd grown up  were quite heavily addicted.  They often came into the  Belle Bar and we were puzzled  at first by their peculiar  behavior. At times they  seemed   normal   enough;   at  others, their speech was  slurred and their heads kept  dropping forward as though  they were suffering from  terminal exhaustion. (This,  we would soon learn, was  called "nodding-out" or  "playing the nod" but at  first, we naively thought  they were just drunk.) They  seemed to sometimes spend a  long time in the washroom  at the back of the place but  we weren't worldly enough to  connect the two things. Ed  Brown, the bespectacled owner of the place however, was  not as guileless as we were.  He soon pegged what was  going on and finally, when a  couple of them sidled off to  the John, he followed them.  They must have forgotten to  lock the door and I suppose  old Brown barged in and  caught them red-handed.  In any event, he came barrelling down the stairs in a literal  fit shouting things like "Goddamn junkies!" and "Call  the Narcotics Squad!" The  two whitefaced young hypes  came hightailing down  behind him with their sleeves  still rolled up. They and  their friends were out of the  place before Brown even had a  'WINNING NUMBERS FOR JUNE 1978*  -Tne?Sf .

There were several cafes  further east on Hastings which  were not nearly so picky  about having junkies for customers. One place next door  to the Broadway catered  almost exclusively to addicts.  I was in this cafe once or  twice, before I became  fully-aware of its notoriety  and had the sense to stay  clear. It was a sleazy, nondescript establishment, the  chief distinguising feature  being that all the coffee-  spoons had holes drilled in  them. The owner had reportedly resorted to this tactic  to prevent the junkies stealing  them for cooking-up purposes.  Across the street was another restaurant called  Angelo's. It too had a rather  unsavoury reputation but the  food was much better than the  indifferent table of fare at the  Belle Bar and we sometimes  went there to eat. Such  notorious rounders as Zoot  Harry, the King of the Boosters and his burly lieutenant  Bernie Grimes were frequently to be seen holding court  there. I suppose we got a  certain vicarious kick out of  being in the proximity of these  sleazy street-heroes.  One lacklustre, quite ordinary-seeming afternoon, 1  was sitting in Angelo's  with Deke, my drummer  friend and a couple of girls  we'd just met. The four of  us were about to leave the  cafe and catch a movie. Suddenly the door slammed open  and about sixteen cops,  both plainclothes and uniformed, stormed into the  place. "Everyone sit where  you are!" commanded one  of them. "This is a raid!"  That fact was obvious enough.  We had no idea what it was  all about but prudently stayed  put. To say we were nervous  would be an understatement  even though we were guilty  of nothing more than being  there.  A couple of policewomen  showed up to further swell  the ranks of the Law. The  place was literally bristling  with badges, guns and stern,  official faces. A couple at a  time, both customers and  staff were taken to the back of  the cafe, questioned and  searched.   (The policewomen  quizzed the females including  our companions.) Deke and  1 were grilled briefly together.  "Roll up your sleeves!"  ihcy ordered. We bared our  needle-innocent arms to their  critical scrutiny. "Okay,  you kids clear to hell out  of here," said one of the  detectives. "You can get in a  lot of trouble hanging around  places like this!"  Shortly, we found ourselves  back on Hastings Street,  gasping in mutual relief.  A black-maria was now parked  outside thc cafe and several  handcuffed people were being  prodded aboard. We still  had no idea what was going on  beyond the fact that it was  obviously a drug-related  operation of some sort. Whatever was happening, we were  all damn glad to be out of  the middle. Wc hit the Rex  Theatre as we had planned  and unwound in the safe  darkness for a few hours.  By the time we hit thc  street again, the afternoon  papers were out and the story  was featured prominently  on the front pages. Apparently, the owner and his three  sons had .been charged with  READ ANY GOOD  LABELS LATELY?  A basic guide to the Who, What, Where, When  and Why of Shopping Canadian.

The experience at Angelo's  (the place was subseqently  sold and thc name changed)  certainly instilled no desire  in me to get any further involved with junk or junkies.

Wednesday through Saturday, July  12���15, will see Anne Bancroft  and Shirley MacLaine starring in  The Turning Point. Sunday  through Wednesday, July 16���  19, the film is The Choirboys.  The Turning Point is a thoughtfully written work about the  choices that life forces us to  make. Bancroft and MacLaine  portray two friends and rivals,  one of whom has gone on to become a leading ballerina while  the other has settled down with  her husband and family to run a  dancing school in the country.  Of the show producer-director  Herbert Ross says, "Of course we  will entertain you. We have an  honest and poignant emotional  story to tell, we have the glamour  and strangeness of a background  you have never seen before, we  have in short a show. But I'm  not ashamed that we also have a  story that deals in human values  and senses the meaning of life."  Besides Anne Bancroft and  Shirley MacLaine, the film gets  a strong performance from Tom  Skerrit as MacLaine's husband.  Mikhail Baryshnikov and Leslie  Browne also make notable film  debuts. The Turning Point  is rated for mature audiences.  The Choirboys is director Robert Aldrich's filmic interpretation of former policeman Joseph  Wambaugh's novel. The story  deals with a group of big-city  cops and how they relieve themselves of thc tensions and frustrations inherent in their jobs.

Despite an optimistic  Sun ��� Jupiter aspect, the next  few days could be filled with  trickery and passing anxieties.  Advice is to smile and check all  financial dealings thoroughly.  Sorry folks, but there arc gloomy  prognostications for all of us  this week.  ARIES (March 21-April 19)  Accent is on disappointing  social activities owing to other  people's financial upsets. It's  definitely no time to speculate  or risk hard-earned cash. Beware  of tricky or deceptive monoucvers  on thc work scene. Mysterious  aches and pains now need prompt  attention.  TAURUS (April 20-Miy 20)  Domestic conditions face temporary delays and setbacks.  Loved ones enjoying a rebellious  streak are not in the mood to  discuss matters sympathetically.  Having a good time could he  spoilt by overindulgence. Romances starting now hint of disappointment and deception.  GEMINI (May 21-June 21)  Messages and short journeys  now bring unexpected or sad  news. Avoid signing contracts  and agreements. Pul aside all  important paperwork till next  week. Inspect closely real estate  deals which look a little dicey.  Every Gemini must take care on  the highwav this week.  CANCER (June 22-July 22)  Be prepared for financial  shocks and surprises. Guard all  valuables and carry as little  cash as possible. It's a gloomy  time to purchase new items,  especially clothing and adornment. All messages have to bc  double-checked for true meaning  and clarity.  LEO (July 23-Aug.22|  It looks like a week of wasted  journeys and personal frustrations.

Each of the ten 'choirboys' gets his turn at both  party scenes and separate on-  duty episodes. Burt Young turns  in a noteworthy performance as  an unshaven, raunchy, vice-  squad sergeant who surprisingly  shows a touching compassion for  a young arrested homosexual.  Other notables in the fine cast  include Randy Quaig, Don Stroud  and James Woods.

Certainly we often  demonstrate an unhealthy  enthusiasm for trivial faddish  things, while displaying a  distressing lack of interest  in thc social and political  forces which mold our lives.  The people who argue vehemently over whether or not  professional hockey players  ought to break -the monotony  of the game with the odd  punch in the nose, or who  hold up the victory of Team  Canada over thc Russian  national team as a triumph  for democracy are, paradoxically, the same people  who are apt to become suddenly hard of hearing when  someone screams for help on  a street at night or who are  too "busy" on election  day to do their part to make  the democratic process work.  While we take an obsessive  interest in the sports page,  the TV Guide, in cars, in  clothes, Eastern mysticism,  health food, backgammon or  whatever, the streets of our  cities become increasingly  unsafe and an embarrassingly  small percentage of the population actually elects our  governments.  Neurosis and apathy are no  "acts of God" like bacterial  or viral diseases; they are  human reactions to the rapid  pace of change. We become  neurotically fascinated with  the trivial and socially and  politically disinterested in  order to avoid confrontation  with circumstances and forces  which we feci to bc utterly  beyond our control. The strain  of keeping abreast of change,  of keeping our bearings in  the face of its dizzying pace,  encourages us to withdraw,  to put a distance between  ourselves and reality, to keep  the world at arms' length.  We feel that if we fail to do  so, we may be destroyed.  This fear is not unfounded.  People who have been caught  in the figurative machinery  of change can be mangled  as severely and permanently  as if they had fallen under a  truck. Several weeks ago,  thc editor of this paper saw  fit to comment at length on  the career of one such individual, the recently deceased  Francis Gary Powers, the  U-2 pilot whose name joined  that of Benedict Arnold as a  synonym for treachery in the  American vocabulary when he  refused to die on command.  As the editor observed,  Francis Gary Powers, in 1960,  was just ahead of his time.  Throughout the fifties and  early sixties the United States  was fighting the Cold War,  a clandestine Atomic-age  conflict, with a set of John  Wayne ethics, a "public  myth" left over from the  propaganda movies of the  Second World War. A captured soldier was supposed  to spit defiance at the enemy  and lecture his captors on  Truth, Justice and the American Way. But Francis Gary  Powers' war was not W.W.  II. He was engaged in an  internationally illegal act,  spying, an activity categorically denied by his own President, directed against a country with which thc U.S. was  not officially at war. The  world had changed a great  deal, but the minds of the  people would need still another decade and the agony of  Vietnam before they could  adjust. Meanwhile Francis  Gary Powers' life was broken  on the wheel of change. He  was caught and crushed  between the past and the  future.  Coincident-ally,   last  week  another even more tragic  casualty of the Twentieth  Century was laid to rest.  Claude Robert Eatherly,  former major in the U.S.A.F,  winner of the Distinguished  Flying Cross, piloted the  B-29 bomber which scouted  and selected the targets  of Hiroshima and Nagasaki.  Eatherly issued the final  go-ahead orders for the dropping of atomic bombs he knew  nothing about. He was  twenty-four years old at thc  time. A year later, he participated in further atomic tests  at Bikini atoll, where he was  caught briefly in a mushroom  cloud. After that incident he  started to go to pieces. He-  was discharged from the air  force for psychiatric reasons:  "severe neurosis and guilt  complex". His life became a  series of sordid brushes  with the law and bouts of  psychiatric confinement.  His death of cancer ended  thirty-three years of chronic  insomnia, nightmares, and  anguish over the part he  played in ushering the world  into the Atomic Age.  Claude Robert Eatherly  and the other flyers who  lost their sanity and committed suicide as a result of their  connection with the Bomb,  were soldiers, cogs, tools,  just as were the people of  Hiroshima and Nagasaki,  in a display of power whose  ultimate purpose, it has  been suggested, was to demonstrate, not to the Japanese,  but to the Russians, who  were threatening to enter the  war in the Pacific, that the  United States possessed  atomic weapons and were  prepared to use them ruthlessly to protect their control  of the Pacific sphere. Like  Francis Gary Powers, they all  were given a glimpse of the  future and that vision, one  way or another, destroyed  them.  What is ironic is that we  have come to live under the  shadow of weapons which  make the atomic bomb look  like a firecracker. We are  able to do so, in spite of the  films and statistics, only by  deliberately "turning off"  and adopting an apathetic  attitude while distracting  ourselves with trivialities.  There are still periodic  eruptions of outrage; recently  Gibsons Public  Library  Tuesday 2-4 p.m.  .Wednesday 2-4 p.m  iThursday 2-4 &  I 7-9 p.m.  |saturday2-4p.m.  886-2130  demonstrators actually  stormed the Trident nuclear  submarine base, and disarmament talks continue fitfully,  breaking down whenever  political expediency demands  that one of the participants  take a hard line. Yet amid the  talk of "detente", "Limited  nuclear warfare" and "clean  bombs", the fact remains  that some years ago the Defense Department of the  United States was pleased  to announce that it had  enough nuclear weapons in  the state of Texas alone to  exterminate every living  thing on thc face of the globe  sixteen times over. That was  a few years ago, and perhaps ihe protests have not  all been in vain. At least the  great powers arc now making  polite noises on thc subject  of disarmament instead of  comparing "overkills".  After all, boys, once is more  than enough. Still, it's  small wonder people get a  bit disillusioned, disinterested  and fatalistic from time to  time. Living in a world where  rapid, drastic and uncontrollable change is the rule,  it's hard to stay light on  your feet. Next week, the  basic Two-Step.  By Ann Napier  Write Box 3, c/o Coast News  Dear Ann:  We are a couple in our forties.  We have a lot of fun together.  We have parties, and kissing  develops ��� no real hanky panky,  but flirtations. Well, our next  door neighbours are in our relative age group. We do have them  and they in return have us there  for parties and dinner. Well,  when we were feeling pretty  high one night, the neighbour  (a nice looking man) and myself,  exchanged a few torrid kisses ���  whamo! We were in love or  something. He gave me his  office number. I phoned ��� we  started dating ��� dinner, motels,  the works. It was all so great  until I found an earring and a  match cover in our car from one  of his wife's favourite haunts.  I opened my eyes and found it  was an involuntary switch. Now  the fun of it is gone for me.  Why do you suppose 1 feel this  way. All the excitement is  gone ��� darn! Beswltched  Dear Bcswitched:  Well it wasn't love! It was the  excitement of someone strange.  The feeling of doing something  secret and furtive. The daring  of it. You didn't say how you  felt facing his wife. That was a  bit daring too. Well, when you  found you weren't putting anything over on them, it was an  equal experience. You realized  it was the soap opera syndrom;.  The drama which had made you fade, or one couple will move,  feel ii was something special So learn thai all isn't always  was gone.    Il will probably all   what it seems to be.  ^Px  The advertisers on this page  arc members of:  GIBSONS HARBOUR  BUSINESS ASSOCIATION  ^aufd     Y0UR AUTOPLAN  ^���n^    CENTR]  Taking care of  all your Real Estate Needs  Seaside Plaza  886-2000     Evenings Norm Peterson  886-9121 886-2607  <aB*aw  Seaside Plaza, Gibsons  886-2811  Do you know wc have: Beads ���  Stamps ��� Paints ��� Brushes ���  Acrylics ���  All types of toys &  games???

LETTERS  TO INQUIRE PHONE  886-2742  Continued from Page 3  placement of my decimal points;  that happened somewhere in  the "Peninsula Times" office.  Regardless, anyone reading "The  Press" would have seen my  letter reproduced correctly!  Secondly, Mr. White appears  to purposely choose to disregard  the basic points in, and my reasons for, writing the letter, lt  was and still is my intention to  generate an interest and an  awareness in my fellow taxpayers, of the ' PERCENTAGE  CHANGES in this year's mill  rates.  I chose this method of portraying the unhappy situation,  as we all have different 'Dollar  Taxes' and are all (throughout  thc Sunshine Coast) subject lo  different charges dependent on  Services provided Mill r.uev  however, arc lhc same for all  in the same area for thc same  service.  Therefore I will continue to  laud those who DECREASE their  mill rate and berate those who  INCREASE theirs despite the  raised Assessments. When we,  as individuals, find our personal  financial positions being continually eroded by inflation (hopefully at not more than 10% per  year) I cannot evoke ecstasy  at the compulsion to pay mill  rate tax increases of 20.30  or, in my overall bill, 40percent!!  1 reiterate, we should campaign for a fair system of Property Taxation, where appeals  could be made at any of the  three stages of the production of  our actual tax bill: 1. Upon  assessment; 2. After mill rate  assertation; 3. Upon receipt of  the final tax bill.  Lastly, unlike some people, 1  have no political axe to grind and  I would require the system outlined above from any government party and whichever organizations are supposedly pursuing  our interests and welfare.  Trusting this delineates  my position precisely.

The letter written about flea  collars was obviously done so by  one who is nol fully aware of the  true control and status of sueh  pesticides in tlea collars.  lhc functions of the chemicals  for controlling fleas are as  described in the printed letter,  bin the extremes stated are to  sit) the U\ist a little over stated.  li  is as bad as saying dogfish  have been further raids, and in  particular, the South African  army's recent raid on the refugee camp at Cassinga in Angola  during which, according to the  correspondent of the British  Financial Times who visited the  camp after the raid, large numbers of students and school  children were killed.  Those who have tied from  racial persecution and have  escaped the raids are in need of  food, clothing, shelter, medical  care and education. Much can  done by the citizens of Western  nations to lessen racial bitterness, such as that which led to  the recent massacres at Kolwe/.i.  A gesture of good will tin our  part, and the sending of timely  help, may serve to show that  there   need   not   be   bitlerness  tude for the beauty and peace  of this Canada, our adopted, or  native land.  But we arc disturbed with a  sense of foreboding because wc  stand at the crossroads of national  destiny. Which road will we  take? There, on one hand, lies  the road to a fragmented and  purposeless conglomerate,  exhausted by endless, selfish  regional bickering, pathetic and  impotent, to In- gradually absorbed piece by piece, by our  strong and purposeful neighbours  who would have predictable  plans for Quebec!  There, on the other hand, is  the road for us to take. We must,  with decisive deliberation, opt  for continuing unity, counting Oncosts and making lhc necessary  sacrifices.   Two of these Mexican red-legged tarantulas arrived in the Unicorn Pets 'n  Plant Shop last week. The bite of this variety of tarantula is no worse than a  bee sting and 'tis said they can be taught to do tricks.   mercury is dangerous to you  when in effect you would have to  cat thirty pounds of the fish every  day for ninety days to come to  any harm.  The level of toxicity in modern  flea collars is low enough to be  harmless to humans, but effective against fleas. All anyone has  to do is read thc analysis on the  package to check. Such statements as made in thc printed  letter are, as far as I am concerned, not the words of someone  who is fully conversant with the  Government's regulations  as required by the holder of a  pesticide license.  Fleas are well adapted to  living in a world such as ours,  and the methods of removing  fleas as described (vacuum  cleaner for removing eggs)  leaves a lot to be considered of  the person using such a method  to rid the home of fleas that  defy even the most sophisticated  approaches.  Penny Royal, Cider Vinegar,  and Garlic may have been considered adequate when there  was nothing else to combat  such a persistent parasite, but  if you are going to ignore the  progress of modern science,  then 1 would ask Thclma Mac-  Adam why she goes to the doctor  when she is ill? Surely her  grandmother had enough cures  for anything that ailed her,  so what would she want with  modern drugs?  Bill Walkey  Racial War  Editor:  The spreading racial war in  Southern Africa continues to  claim hundreds of human lives  and to drive many victims into  exile in countries which are  themselves impoverished and  unable to provide the needed  relief for refugees. A united  Nations report lasl year slated  that 1.500 persons had died as  a result of Rhodesian Government  riads on refugee camps (Manchester Guardian. December  25,   1977).     Since   then,   there  between blacks and whites.  Though Ihe sums Ihat can hc  provided by individual Canadians  will meet only a fraction of thc  enormous needs, they are a practical way for those of us in thc  West who are appalled at lhc  systematic racism practised in  southern Africa to express our  indignation and our sympathy  for thc victims. We therefore  appeal to your readers to make  whatever contributions they can  to our funds. Contributions are  tax-deductible, and should be  sent to Canadian Aid for Southern  African Refugees.

"I didn't know you  were coloured". You probably  didn't know either. Actually I  am not black, or brown, or red or  yellow. I am more purple. That  is, over the years most of my  body has been purple at one time  or another.  Thinking back on it, I am sure  a car body subjected to thc same  blows and abuse would have  long ago been written off. My  bumps and bruises did not start  on motorcycles of course. In  fact il has only heen within the  last five years that there has been  a rash of them connected with  motorcycles (rash would seem an  appropriate word as serious  bruises are often accompanied  with a raspberry rash on the  knees and elbows).  It started soon after I got my  first bike. In reality it was more  a collection of mobile scrap metal  that turned ninety percent of its  fuel into heat and touching it  almost anywhere would result in  a blister. Then when I started  racing I did not have enough  sense to keep my feet on the pegs  and was always getting them  stuck in a hole or run over, often  by my own bike.  Then there was thc Nationals  at Kamloops. Twenty-five of us  were racing down a dusty chute  where there was only room for  five. When 1 came to. someone  was trying to pull my helmet off  without undoing the strap. Somehow I found my bike and completed the race. Afterwards a  young feljow apologized for running over me. I said I did not  know 1 had been run over and he  said. "Hell, I was the third guy  to run over you".  That took care of about 50% of  my body colouration. 1 looked  like a burnt waffle from all the  tire marks. I related in a previous  column how 1 put the rainbow in  my posterior when 1 lost my  seat. Another time, while practicing, I kept overshooting a  corner. Finally in ^a rage I  yanked the front brake on hard  and refused to let go. Well I did  not overshoot that time. The bike  simply pivoted over the front  wheel and drove my head into  thc ground. From thai little  display of temper I received a  bent finger, a waler pouch on  my knee and a few more patches  of my royal colouring.  The latest phase in my colour  mc-beautiful happened on a  recent Sunday at Agassi/. I  don't race that often any more {it  is taking longer for the bruises  to heal) and I had a surplus of  adrenalin to use up. 1 got most  of the wildness out of my system  during practice when some nut  decided to stop on the track for  a rest. I did not mind flying  through the air. in fact it was  rather pleasant and it gave me  time to select the only part of  my body not tenderized. If the  (lying was pleasant the landing  was horrendous and my body's  last small area of pink took on  the nightmare of colours so painfully familiar to me. thus completing my crazy quilt complexion.  Now 1 do not know if it is  stupidity, stubhorness or my  Scottish heritage of milking a  nickel, but I had paid to ride and'  I planned to get my money's  worth. Well, even though it  brought tears to my eyes I rode  and won my two motos for a  trophy half the size of my bruise.  I guess I am not tough enough to  be a coloured person so next  time around just colour me  chicken. Till then, keep strokin'.  Roberts Creek Daze  SCHEDULE OF EVENTS  July 14: (i p.m..

Tennis  By Keith Evans  Sea Cavalcade is approaching  fast so now is the time to hit the  courts and work the bugs out of  your game. This year's tournament will include ladies' singles  and doubles: men's singles and  doubles; and mixed doubles.  There will also be a consolation  draw for all those who lose in the  first round. This guarantees  everyone at least two matches in  each event.  One major change from last  year will be thc restriction of  entry in two events only. For  example, if a man chooses to  play in men's singles and mixed  doubles, then he may not enter  men's doubles. Another change  from last year will be that all  matches will bc held on Saturday  and Sunday. August 12 and 13.  Once again, Trail Bay Sports  Police news  in the Sunnycrest Mall will handle  the registrations. This year's  fee will be $4.00 per person per  event. Balls will be supplied and  there will be prizes for first and  second place in the main draw  and also for first place in the  consolation draw. Final date for  registrations will be Thursday,  August 10 at 6 p.m. No registrations will be accepted without  payment of fees and in no case  will registrations be accepted  after the deadline.  You have probably noticed that  the courts in Dougal and Brothers  Parks have just been resurfaced.  This was due to the fact that the  original surface was improperly  finished. However the repair  work has only been done inside  the actual playing courts and the  treatment used is actually a  sub-surface for a coloured coat.  Since the coloured coat is not  going to be applied, be prepared  to play on very hot courts and to  get very black shoes and balls.

Appeal  The Regional Board, under  advice from their solicitor  Mr. W.Orobko, of the law  firm of Orobko and Shook  of Campbell River, will appeal  to the Pesticide Control  Branch against permission  given recently to B.C.Hydro  lo use herbicides in the upper  half of the powerline above  Pender Harbour.  Should thc appeal fail, it  is presently thc Board's in-  lenlion under legal advice to  seek a court injunction against  the use of herbicides since  thc powerline crosses potable  water sources.  Schools  At the regular meeting of  the School Board held on  Thursday. July 6. the signing  look place of the agreement  between School District #46  and the Sechelt Native Indian  Band concerning use of thc  facility at Deserted Bay for  the Native Environmental  Studies Programme. The programme is scheduled to get  underway in September.  In other School Board  business, it was announced  that Mr. J.Boulton had been  hired to Till the position of  principal of Elphinstone  Secondary School replacing  Don Montgomery who recently resigned the position to  return to the classroom.  Neigbour-  hood Watch  The Gibsons Neighbourhood  Watch learn is now working in the  Gower Point Road and North  Road areas. Starting this month,  they will be making frequent  trips to Keats and Gambier  Islands to complete the identification programme for the summer residences.  The area between Port Mellon  and Gibsons has been completed.  If there is any person in that  area who was not home when the  Neighbourhood Watch workers  called please contact the R.C.  M.P. in Gibsons and arrange  to receive an engraver.  It has been discovered that  many residences are not displaying their Neighbourhood Watch  stickers. We encourage everyone  to display these stickers as the  engraving identification section  of thc programme is only half  of this crime prevention  programme.  Court news  It was a quiet week at the  Sechelt Provincial Court. Two  men were fined for drinking  offenses.  Jon Hoff was found guilty of  impaired driving and given a  $500 fine; and Patrick Poyle  received a S750 fine for driving  with a blood alcohol count of  over.08.  Gibsons  pub  dispute  Continued from Page 1  reviewed and the case decided  on its merits."  Smith also has a letter from  Director of Licensing Munkley  in which it is said that pre-  elearance is not a necessary  prerequisite for the village  reviewing the application.  Munkley later contradicted  this in a three-way telephone  conversation between himself,  Alderman Hume, and Smith.  Smith went on to point out  that he had his site inspected  bv Inspector Whiffin of thc  Liquor Bureau as long ago  as February 19 and the Inspector had indicated no problems with the site at that  time. Despite this, five  months later, Smith has not  been able to get a pre-elearance from Victoria though the  Janowsky application got  prc-clearance in four days  after legislation was passed  creating "F" licenses for  marine pubs.  Further, Smith said that he  had phoned Whiffin on April  21 when he first read in the  Vancouver Sun that marine  pubs had been created. "The  Inspector told me at that time  he had no idea what an  "F" license was yet four days  later had passed the Janowsky  application. I was amazed  when 1 read in the Coast News  that Janowsky had obtained  pre-elearance," said Smith.  "Every time 1 phoned him up  to ask why there was no  correspondence 1 was told it  takes time for these things to  be processed. Apparently  only for some people."  Smith in closing urged the  village council to set up a  meeting with General Manager Woodlands since it  would appear it is in his  hands to issue pre-clearances.
