 VlCl����1*' "  The Sunshine  Published at Gibsons, B.C.  15�� per copy on newsstands  Serving the Sunshine Coast since 1945  November 28.1978  Volume 31. Number 48  Marj Leslie, pictured in the background with Postmaster Les Virag, is retiring from the Gibsons Post  Office. She started working there June 1, 1950. The  occasion was the retirement dinner given in her  honour at Mr. Mike's by her co-workers.  School District disagrees with Victoria  Is Sechelt Elementary crowded ?  According to thc Ministry of Education, i�� �� hum lhc Board nl  School Trustees is beholden lor funding, the capacity of Sechell  Elementary School is 422. The present enrollment of the school  is .378, and wilh tin anticipated increase of four students. District Superintendent of Schools John Denley is looking for more  capacity throughout the complex. "The problem with Sechell  (School)." hc said, "is lhal il is plugged."  The Ministry regards each classroom as a unit of thirty, and il  is. of course, possible physically to pul thirty students into a  classroom. There arc classrooms within the School Distriel  which have thirty students, and the Board docs not have a  policy on class si/cs. It is, however, the objective of thc Board's  Management Committee, consisting of the District Superintendent, the Secretary-Treasurer, and thc Chairman of Ihe  Board of School Trustees, to maintain class sizes between  twenty-live and thirty for intermediate grades and twenty lo  twenty-live for primary classes with the intention of aiming  towards the lower figures.  Consequently, there is a need for space and lor a teacher ai  Sechelt Elementary School, and Superintendent Denley-expressed himself as being, "quite frankly leafy al getting a new  teacher and supplying a sub-standard size area for a classroom." This came as a result of some discussion concerning lhc  possible use of the Learning Assistance Centre, the room at the  end of the Trail Bay building which was lhc school library in  earlier davs.  In a related matter, the  Board approved the addition  of a part-time assistant teacher at Davis Bay Elementary  School. The teacher engaged  for this position would also  work as home and hospital  visiting teacher in a half-time  position. Both this teacher and  Ihe additional teacher for Se  chelt Elementary School will  be assigned to the new positions as a result of transfers or a series of transfers  from Chatelech Junior Secondary School since that school's  enrollment has declined and  thc school is considered to  bc essentially one teacher  overstaffed.  Sec re I a ry-Tren s u rer Roy  Mills spoke of lhc extra room  which lhc library has taken  over in lhc pasl Iwo years, but  Sechelt Elementary School  Principal Brian Butcher was  very much opposed lo tiny idea  of reassigning present library  space. "I'm really hostile to  lhal idea." he said. "It would  effectively destroy the library." "I don't think it's  a good idea cither," said  District Superintendent  John Denley. "We don't  waul more buildings on thc  Sechelt site," hc said, as he  went on to speak of lhc need  lo consider new facilities at  Wesl Sechelt for September of  1979. An expansion at lhc  present Kindergarten to  Grade Three level is possible,  but an expansion lo include all  elemenlary grades is a consideration.  Denley said lhal a community meeting lo discuss Ihe  cmcrgenl problem will bc set  up wilh ample lime lor September planning.

In thc meantime, the Board  voted to move an available  portable from Pender Harbour lo Wesl Sechelt and to  provide toilets for thc facility so as nol to overcrowd  the toilets at lhc school.  Sechelt Elementary School  Principal Brian Butcher expressed his reservations con-  cerninganioving students from  the main school, bul thc  District Superintendent said  that something had lo be done  to relieve Ihe pressure at thc  Sechelt School.

A lot more. The  choice of thc best system for  the Sunshine Coast is nol  going to be a simple one. Your  representatives on thc Regional Board need your in-  formed support in order to  make   the   right    decisions.  Review Committee finds regional concept worthwhile  Regional Government  given a positive evaluation  The future of ihe Regional District concept of governmeni  seems assured judging by the repori brought down b) Ihe Regional District Review Committee which has jusl been made  public. Thc 287-page repori has a total of fifty-two recommendations and generally speaking the conclusions drawn arc very  favourable insofar as Regional Districts and Ihe manner in  which they have been operating is concerned.  In Chapter II of this report, under thc heading ol "Alternatives" the Review Committee concludes: "lt was thc view of  the Committee that substituting a different system fur the  present one would not in itself solve thc problems mm encountered In British Columbia. Nor would thc abolition uf the  present Regional Districts provide thc answer. During the Hearings the Committee found that there is considerable support  for the present concept of Regional Government. The peculiar  geography of British Columbia with ils expanse of virtually  unpopulated areas, its mountain ranges forming natural barriers and its highways system providing the only real communication link in many areas, indicates that thc Province musl  develop its own system of Regional Gov eminent. Such a s) stem  was established in 1965 and in many cases has workeil well."  In discussing problems that have arisen, thc Report  points out that many of these have stemmed from a general  lack of commitment to the Regional District concept by the Provincial Government over the years, a lack of support from Ihe  Ministry of Municipal Affairs and Housing, a lack of co-operation by other ministries and their field agencies.  The Report ginds that there is little support for the abolition  of Regional Districts throughout the Province and Ihat while  secrecy of operation was a public view that was expressed  this arose largely from poor communications on Ihe pari uf the  Regional Districts rather than unfair practices. Thc claim lhal  Regional Government costs were excessive was found by Ihe  Review Committee to bc based usually on "very little analysis  of either the costs or the services provided." Thc pour image  that many Regional Districts have with the public, the repori  found, was caused bv thc fact that they had unpopular functions  to fulfill.  tin lhc subject of the lack of support obtained by Regional  Districts from lhc Municipal Affairs and Housing Ihe Re\icw  Report is quite specific. "Ihe volume of complaints aboul the  Ministry is an aspect which cannol bc ovcrslrcsscd by ihis  Committee, Il is from ihis Ministry that Regional Districts  expect support, encouragement, help and guidance. By and  large Ihcy have nol received support." The Review Committee  also fiiuml Ihat delay in securing Ministry approval for by -laws  was another recurrent theme in presentations made In Ihem.  They strongly urge lhal Ihe Minister of Municipal Affairs and  Housing undertake a critical examination of lhc degree and qua-  lit) of support extended to Regional District Boards and stall  and uf the process involved in by-law approvals where his ami  other ministries are involved.  Thc controversial planning function of Regional Boards also  was commented un specifically in thc report: "Despite many  comments lu Ihe contrary, it is considered lhal Ihe Regional  Districts make an honest effort to obtain public input or comment un land use proposals."  Another area of Ihe report that touched on problems familiar  locally found thai there was much evidence uf parochialism on  Regional Distriel Boards "especially un the part uf municipal  directors and as a result a lack uf cohesion as a regional body.  Municipal directors, being also members uf Iheir councils, have  Iheir regional responsibility as an extra work load and arc also  subject tu potential conflicts. The Committee appreciates lhal il  is difficult lo think regionally if one is accountable lo a particular electorate by virtue of being a member of a municipal  council."  The Regional Review Commilcc made two specific observations concerning Ihe Sunshine Coasl Regional District, first,  Ihcy recommended that the merging of Ihis Regional Distriel  with Ihe Powell River Regional Distriel might be beneficial  since Ihcy are adjacent and share a "common road system".  They also observed lhal "There appears lu hc a need fur Ihe  incorporalioo of larger municipalities, as thc population of Ihis  District is grow big rapidly."  Breakwaters too costly  Marina changes  Although federal authorities have not yet come up wilh a  written cost comparison of the two possible sites for a marina  in Gibsons, ihev have expressed the view lhal Ihe more economic site is the inner harbour. W.Parkinson, head of Ihe Sniall  Boals Harbour Development section of Enviornmenl Canada,  has told Ihe committee thai the cosl of breakwaters would be  much less for lhc inner harbour sile as compared lu Ihe silc  most recently studied between the wharf and Armour's Bench.  As a consequence Alderman Trainor presented seven recommendations to lhc November 21 council meeting which would  see a re-design of the plans for a marina in the inner harbour.  The object of re-designing is to preserve the esthetic value ol  the harbour and bench and lo make the vv hole lay -mil of parking  and floats more pralical. "Wc arc pressing the federal aillhorily  to slate iu writing whai their cost share will be," said I minor,  "so that wc can present plans and costs lo lhc public by lhc  middle of ncxl Febrary or at the latest the end of February."  Another recommendation called for the 19.79 budget for  the marina to include the amount remaining in ihis year's  along wiih an additional 51.200. Mayor Blain will lake Alderman Hume's place on the committee when Hume's term runs  out early in December until new committees are set up for the  ensuing vear.

Il appears that thc proposed  charge of $2.1)0 for new commuter cards proposed by thc  B.C.

Advertising Department:  Penny Christian  An encouraging report  The extensive report brought down by  the Regional District Review Committee  amounts to a surprisingly sweeping vole  of confidence in a much maligned branch  of government. All too often in the past  the Regional Governments in British Columbia have had to function in an atmosphere of hostility at home and of neglect  in the provincial capital and the conclusion drawn by the Review Committee  that they are performing an essential  funcion and performing on the whole  rather well must come as something of an  unwelcome surprise to the provincial  government which appointed the committee.  There is much food for thought in the  Report just released and those locally  who have been waiting in quiel anticipation for Regional Boards to disappear are  facing a major disappointment. On the  provincial level, too, there must be consternation because here wc have a clear  voice in favour of de-centralization being  addressed to a provincial government  which throughout its tenure has sought to  centralize more and more power in its  own hands.  The support for the regional concept  has been consistent in this corner on  the grounds that the more control we  have over our own lives and localities  the better. It is heartening to find  that those charged by the provincial  government to study the matter throughout the province are in agreement with  us.  Unfortunate referendum  We would deem it unfortunate that the  recent referendum on whether garbage  pick-up should be on a weekly or semi-  weekly basis was held at all. The reason  given for it was that the Regional Board  sought information. With only 7.4% of  the electorate responding and that percentage split almost exactly for and  against, it can hardly be said that the information sought was forthcoming. When  one couples this with the fact that the  present arrangement has a contractual  obligation to run for one more year in any  case, it can be fairly said to have been an  unsatisfactory and unnecessary exercise.  Apparently it can also be said that the  holding of it has had unfortunate repercussions. In Area 'B', for example, where  Are these our priorities?  We are informed by the Federal  Government ��� you remember the  Federal Government? They're the folks  that have promised to reduce spending  for years now while running up the largest deficit in history ��� that the choice  of the new fighter planes for Canada  has been narrowed to two. We are informed that the available field of choice  was narrowed to the two planes chosen  because they were most cost-effective,  the cheapest in short. They will only cost  thc Canadian taxpayer two billion dollars.  Aren't we lucky. .  At the risk of being tiresomely repetitious wc would say that it is absolutely ludicrous for the Canadian government to bc spending this kind of money  on warplanes when it is being forced by  thc disastrous state of the Canadian  economy to reduce services to people  .. .from the files of Coast News  5 YEARS AGO  More than 100 people attended the  official opening of Gibsons Kiwanis  Village last Sunday.  Prominent Hopkins Landing pioneer Eric George Philip Hopkins  died in North Vancouver on November 25 at the age of 85 years.  Larry Labonte, popular leader of  Gibsons Athletic Association, and  frontline official in various other  organizations, will be Gibsons mayor  for 1974. He received 359 votes while  Ken Goddard received 203.  10 YEARS AGO  YOURS MINE AND OURS starring  Lucille Ball and Henry Fonda is  scheduled to play at the Twilight  Theatre on December 4, 5, 6 and 7.  At an open house at Lissi-Lands  Florist, one of the most unique  pieces on display was a kissing ball  complete with mistletoe.  15 YEARS AGO  A Gambier Island pioneer, Mr.  Oliver Becker, died on Monday,  November 18 in his 79th year.  The Gibsons Hospital Auxiliary  are arranging for Christmas corsages priced at $1.00 and $1.50 to  be on sale at the Welcome Cafe,  Co-op Store and Coin Dry Cleaners.  20 YEARS AGO  REAL ESTATE: Pender Harbour,  3'/2 acres, wonderful view properly  on road.

Ernie and his wife Irene will  make you very welcome, even if  you've only come to satisfy your  curiosity. (From an article by Mrs.  M.West.)  25 YEARS AGO  The Roberts Creek String Orchestra gave a delightful concert in the  Community Hall on the 21st under the  able direction of Miss Margaret  Mclntry. Many of the old favourites  and some modern selections were  presented, among them Cumberland  Reel and Marriage of Figaro by  Mozart. Popular melodies included  Shrimp Boats is-a-comin' and Everywhere I Wander.  30 YEARS AGO  With the completion of the new  dock this year, it is now possible to  handle the largest freight and passenger boats on the coast. There are  three shipping companies new serving Gibsons daily, making the trip  to Vancouver in one-and-a-half  hours.  a very strong majority of those voting  voted against the present weekly pick-up,  expectations have been apparently  aroused that cannot bc met. This is unfortunate and not a situation designed to  produce a contented electorate in that  region of the Sunshine Coast.  If all this weren't enough, it must be  observed that an extensive evaluation of  the waste disposal system present and  future on the Sunshine Coast is even now  underway and the frequency of pick-up  of garbage is closely tied in with larger  questions of eventual disposal that have  not yet been resolved.  All in all, this appears to have been an  exercise in democracy which was neither  justified nor fruitful.  along the full spectrum of government  programmes.  Let us remember that the giants of  economic health extant in thc Western  world today are Germany and Japan,  neither of whom arc allowed to spend  money on armaments. Against their  currencies thc Canadian dollar continues  to slide in value and yet we arc spending  two billion dollars out of an economy  which already has a deficit of several  billions for warplanes.  If the Canadian government has commitments that require it to spend billions of dollars on warplanes then wc  should get out of them and gct out of  them immediately. We are haunted by  thc certain knowledge that someone  is getting very wealthy manufacturing  warplanes and it sure as hell is not the  Canadian taxpayer!  Robert Shuttleworth poses with a cougar he has shot at his new home  near the Stranby River, twenty miles along Vancouver Island's east  coast from Cape Scott. Today, an ecology-minded public would say,  with considerable justification, that a human being has no right to  take the life of one of nature's most awesome creatures. But in 1913  these predators outnumbered pioneer settlers in remote areas everywhere throughout the Northwest. Shuttleworth waylaid this marau  der in the family's chicken coop with his "owd tin shotgun". The  odds were not so much in the pre-emptor's favour as the photo may  seem to show. A single barrel weapon such as he holds sold for as  little as $3.50 sixty-five years ago, with a bore, even if not of tin, none  too sturdy for its charge of black powder, and with no second shot in  the event of trouble.

L.R.Peterson  Musings  John Burnside  Slings & Arrows >^  George Matthews  2S   >  The recent events in Guyana arc almost more dreadful than one dares to think  about and yet it seems to me  that think aboul them we  must. ,'  No doubt in the last week or  so everyone has been saturated with the details of thc bizarre happenings in the jungle  of South America. Of the welter of detail lhal crowded the  airwaves it seems to me mosl  significant thai a doctor  trained in an American  medical school and a nurse  similarly trained were on hand  to dispense the cyanide; that  mothers spoon-fed their babies a cyanide fruit drink at  the behest of the crazed madman who was Iheir leader.  How could trained medical  people get so involved in lhc  doings of this self-styled mes-  siah as to administer deadly-  poison to hundreds of people?  How could mothers kill their  own children al his word ol  command?  Of course, the techniques of  brainwashing, of making people into something other than  themselves, have been well  chronicled since lhc end of  the Second World War al  least, bm like mosl evil things  they happened elsewhere and  to  other   people,   or   so   we  thought,  The hundreds of people who  were brought to mass suicide  in Guyana were not broughl  to that point by the massed  power and techniques ol a  hostile    slate,    bill    In     the  machinations of one charismatic leader. They were the  products of a society much  iikc our own and contemporaries of ours anil we would  do well lo ponder lhc reasons  for. and the implications of  it all.  The last thing one would  want to do in ihis case is to  come up with facile explanations or riglucous indignation  shallowly fell. At best wc can  offer one man's thoughts  expressed with as much  humility as possible iu thc  face, yet again, of lhc aberrations of which our kind is  capable under certain situations.  It seems to mc lhal there  are Iwo aspects of the case to  which we must address ourselves in order i��� extract  something instructive from  bizarre and shocking events,  and Ihcy are, lo repeal, what  is il in this specific society ���  for purposes here hefer to Ihe  North American society as one  society ��� that creates the conditions that such as Jones can  exploit, and apart from the  societal questions, what chord  i^ it in thc makeup of our  species that such as he can  sound given Ihe right circumstances.  To the firsl, it would appear  Ihat the bulk of Jones' followers were the coloured poor  of San Francisco. People,  one presumes, so disenchanted and alienated from what  passes for normalcy in our  society lhal they were ready to  seek other and desperate  solutions to the dilemma  of their lives. This is a time  when, throughout North America, governments are effecting economics in lhc areas of  social welfare while pressing  ahead with massive expenditures on armaments thai it  would bc suicide ever to utilize; a time when the centres  of great cities, instead of  being the meeting places of  minds and culture that they  theoretically could be, have  become centres of mass  despair ripe for exploitation.  The Germany thai the  Allies left bereft of pride or  hope of improvement after  the First World War was made  to order for the crazed madman who promised a new  world, and so il is ill Ihe cities  of North America and much of  the world today. Unless we  heed Ih. teachings of lhc man  we pay lip service lo as our  spiritual leader and look upon  Ihe dispossessed, the poor,  the unfortunate all over the  world as our brothers and  sislers in distress; unless wc  become our brothers' keepers  then we are setting the stage  for a massive madness beside  which thc happenings in  Guyana could seem to be a  mere soap bubble of misfortune.  Secondly, what is the chord  in our makeup that allows us  to kill our offspring at a madman's command; what is thc  chord lhal allowed civilized  and educated people a mere  generation ago to attempt  genocide at the command of  another madman. It is a dangerous truth that a people in  despair seek the comfort of a  strong leader. Someone who  appears to have all the answers to the questions that  beset Ihem. Even in Ihe relative wealth in which we live,  we find too many seeking a  strong   leader   with   all   thc  answers. In return for these  answers, too many of us are  willing to exchange a doglike  and unquestioning devotion  and inevitably such devotion  is abused and misdirected by  Ihe fallible human being who  has been made into a god by  thc weakness of his followers  and thc strength of his own  arrogance.  What is needed is a caring  and a sharing at all levels of  society; a distrust of magical  leaders who will somehow  waft away all our problems.  The Second World War  showed us what is possible  when a people alienated in  hopelessness is exploited by  a charismatic figure who  promises them solutions thai  they cannot otherwise sec.  What happened in Guyana  should make il plain that  such things do not just happen  elsewhere but can happen  anywhere that human misery  and the overweening pride of  a gifted individual arc allowed  lo become dangerous bedfellows.  It appears as though important public officials arc  getting a lot more than free  mailing privileges these days.  Aside from the fact that judges and hookers apparently  have more in common than  the age of their professions,  politicians too have quite a  following, and not just ill their  constituencies.  In a recent article in Saturday Night. Edward Shorter  discussed "The bedroom bureaucrats at play in Ottawa"  ("The Private Life of the  Ruling Class", Saturday  Night, October, 1978).

There  seems to be more lhan just a  healthy, rampant lust to the  whole venture; in fact, according to Shorter, the quickest  way to the top of the bureaucratic garbage heap is to sleep  around as much as possible;  bul never with anyone who  has less power or prestige.  Thc article itself was a  revelation to me until 1 started  to think aboul my own observations of the sexual charisma  of power. While I've never  been powerful or important  enough to take advantage of  this peculiar social phenomenon, I've seen many poor  souls trapped by the lust for  power and the power of lust.  My firsl experience (the article makes it clear to me now)  was going to the post office  with my aunt to mail Christmas cards and seeing thc Post  Master kissing all thc ladies  under thc mistletoe he'd hung  by the stamp wicket. Under  normal conditions nobody  would have even spoken to  the old cool bul I can see now  lhal the sexual charisma of his  powerful office seduced the  poor ladies out of their normal  reticence. I can sec now too  that the crush I had on my  grade four teacher was only  another example of the sexual  charisma of power.  Since the Saturday Night  article dealt only with bureaucrats in Ottawa, I decided to  check under thc lip of the  iceberg by interviewing some  of the lesser known bureaucrats and civil servants just to  satisfy my own curiosity on  Ihis scandalous topic. I should  warn you now lhal if you are  offended by frank discussions  of disgusting lusl and depravity among thc filing cabinets  then slop reading here.  My first interview was with  Ms X. a head librarian of a  municipal branch library  in a certain large western  city.' I asked Ms X how Ihe  sexual charisma of power had  affected her. She told mc how  she had risen to head librarian  from assistant file clerk by  ruining the reputation of the  assistant archivist. She spoke  without emotion about how,  when thc ageing archivist  made a lewd suggestion  about how well her tweeds  fitted, she had screamed in  alarm, right there in front of  everyone in thc reference  section. The old archivist was  so embarrassed, he asked for  a transfer to the microfilm  room and was never seen  Please turn to page three Letters to the Editor*"*"0"  Dreaa code eenaible  Coast News, November 28,1978  3..  Sirs:  I would like to make an  observation on a reply given  by your columnist in your  "Come Cry With Me" section  to a young writer who complained about a restaurani  here on the Peninsula, refusing them admittance because  the young man was wearing  jeans. Your columnist's reply  was to agree with this young  person's immature altitude  towards dress codes, and Ihis  I think, was in itself poor  judgement.  Of course there arc dress  codes, whether it's what one  chooses to wear to a wedding.  a funeral���a birthday party or  a theatre, and if these young  people didn't know that when  you choose to dine out in a  better type of establishment,  you do not wear jeans, then  you did them no service by  agreeing with them.  The sooner they realize  that the world is a little  bigger than Sechelt and  Gibsons and that mosl better  restaurants the world over  from Wesl Vancouver to London, will nol admit people  who are wearing clothes more  suitable for lounging around  the yard or cleaning the car,  the belter thev will   lil   into  society other than  the local  scene.  If your columnist is to give  advice for the better, and one  supposes this is the whole  idea of the column, at least  let her give advice worthy of  an adult.  Whether they like it or not,  there arc "rights and wrongs"  of dress for special occasions  and if they did not like it,  then it should bc advised that  they stick with thc local drop-  in cafes and drive-ins where  nobody cares what you wear  or how. And il is not a question of being "snobby" but  just common sense!  K.Anderson,  Madeira Park, B.C.

My second subject was a  G.L.O. grade four, an assistant supervisor in the Ministry of Transport in a provincial  capital.

The Call of Jack Kerouac Part I  I first ran across the work of  Jack Kerouac in the jazz-  journal Down Beat, somewhere in early 1957. 1 was  sequestering in the town of  Kitimat. 500 miles from rhyme  or reason and my mind was  fogged with smelter-smoke  and discontent. Books, records and films were virtually  my only contact with anything  creative. The prose in Down  Beat was generally quite  pedestrian and 1 was totally  unprepared for Kcrouac's  pyrotechnic style, li hit me  like a belly-punch, The piece  was called Jazz Of The Beat  Generation and described a  scaring session in a black  jazz-joint through thc ecstatic  responses of a young white  writer and his frenetic companion. It was a vibrant,  unforgettable bit of writing, a  breakneck, staccato attack of  images that somehow managed to convey the driving  sense of excitement good jazz  can engender. You could  almost hear thc music. 1  was tremendously impressed.  Nol many months after this,  I read the first review of On  lhc Road in Playboy. It was an  enthusiastic assessment and I  could hardly wait to get my  hands on the book. When 1  finally obtained a copy in Vancouver that Christmas, I was  not disappointed. Thc jazz-  piece proved to have been excerpted from this work and  the whole novel seemed to  tingle with a similar energy.  The book excited me more  lhan anything I had read in  years. Kerouac appeared to  have exploded the form;  given writing a new freedom  and vitality. His pell-mell yet  perceptive prose with its frequent Hashes of pure poetry,  gave me my most intense  creative impetus to that point.  1 had only toyed with writing  io this juncture, mostly con-  irived short-stories that owed  more to books than'real life.  Now for the first time I knew  (hat 1 really wanted to write; to  paint with words thc way Ker-  Pages  from a  Life-Log  Peter Trower  ouac did; to transmute and  transmit actual experience.  For On Thc Road was most-  assuredly autobiographical.  It throbbed with the chaotic  rhythms of real life.  The theme and substance of  On The Road are generally too  well-known to demand much  of a reprise. Set in thc latter  part of the Forties, it involves  the cross-country odysseys  of one Sal Paradise and his  restless, wild-driving sidekick, Dean Moriarty. Thc book  ranges like a hipster travelogue, back and forth across  thc United States and into  Mexico, introducing a large,  kaleidoscopic cast of characters. The pace seldom flags  and many of the descriptive  passages are remarkably  evocative. The book is not a  conventional novel as such but  highly-charged, literary  reportage in the manner of  Thomas Wolfe and Proust. It  is a twentieth-century epic  that demands more than a  single reading to deliver its  full impact! But On The Road  was to prove more than just a  well-written, episodic account  of disaffiliated youths batting  randomly about North America. It would transcend thc sum  of its parts to become a clarion-call whose sociological  implications are still being  felt.  Certainly the book had a  great deal to do with my own  defection from the workforce the following summer.  (Although, the receipt of a  small legacy was a factor  too.) 1 returned to Vancouver,  still spitting smelter-dust and  determined to seek my fortune in the Arts. I think I  expected to find a Beat  Generation (such as Kerouac  had postulated) in full cry but  that phenomenon had yet to  manifest itself. My interests  were already shifting away  from thc cartooning that had  been my chief preoccupation  up to this point out I enrolled  at the Vancouver Art School  anyhow. It seemed the likeliest place to meet creative  people, some of whom had  undoubtedly read Kerouac  and perhaps shared my enthusiasm for his work.  I was somewhat disappointed in this regard. Most of the  students I encountered were  cither dedicated to the point of  boredom or rich kids marking  time. If these people were  indicative of the avant-garde,  Vancouver was in sad shape.  Gradually, 1 discovered a few  kindred souls who had also  been bitten with the Kerouac  bug and shared thc feeling  that something was definitely  in the wind. Through one of  them, I learned a second and  less-well publicized novel  called The Subterraneans was  available and made haste to  obtain it. This book is written  in a style considerably more-  eccentric than that employed  in On The Road. Single mad  sentences sometimes sprawl  the length of entire pages, the  words and phrases strung  together like wild beads. This  shorter and (because of its  style) slightly more difficult  book concerns a brief love-  affair between Mardou, a  beautiful black girl and Leo  Percepied, a white writer. Although the names are different, several characters  (including the Kerouac-  Percepied persona) are recognizable from On The Road.  It was evident from reading  the two books, that Kerouac  was embarked on something  much vaster and more ambitious than a single novel. Allen Ginsberg's first major  collection of poetry, Howl,  was published around this  time. Apart from being  bowled-over by the sheer  power of the title poem, I  was fascinated by thc dedica  tion which is to Kerouac and  mentions by title, several  (at that time, unpublished)  books. There was definitely,  a whole saga here.  There were few published  facts available on Jack Kerouac himself during this  initial period of popularity. It  was possible to learn the bare  facts of his life from the jacket  notes. He was of French  Canadian ancestry, was born  in Lowell, Mass. in 1923 and  spent most of his early years  in the East. He had attended  Columbia College in New  York, sailed to various Atlantic and Mediterranean  ports as a merchant seaman  and rambled, as his novels  suggested, over much of  North America. His first book.  The Town And The City, had  been published in 1950.  (1 was very anxious to read  this early novel but it was  some years before 1 was able  to obtain a copy.) Apart from  this sketchy data, it was possible to conjecture a good  deal from the content of the  books themselves but it was  inevitable that truth must  have been manipulated in  places, either for legal reasons  or dramatic effect. Also the  Kerouac figure functions in  large part as an observer,  giving centre-stage to a succession of other characters.  Kerouac's next book, The  Dharma Bums, was touted as  a sort of sequel to On The  Road and was released by that  book's publisher, Viking, the  following year. It opens promisingly enough with Kerouac  (this time using the soubriquet  of Ray Smith) riding a railroad gondola car with an old  hobo to unknown destinations.  But the book soon bogs down  in a welter of predigestcd  Buddhism and shaky philosophizing. The book's central  figure is a young Buddhist and  poet named Japhy Ryder  (later revealed to be real-  life poet, Gary Snyder) with  whom Kerouac climbs a  mountain near San Francisco.

Faye Dunaway will be seen  in Eyes of Laura Mars, a  movie of psychological  suspense and bizarre high  fashion. She is cast as a photographer obsessed with death  and possessed with the power  to see murders about to be  committed while being powerless to stop them. Also prominent in the cast are Tommy  Lee Jones. Brad Dourif, and  Rene Auberjonois. Eyes of  Laura Mars is a film which will  be very difficult to ignore.

The Last  Wallz will be shown Sunday through Tuesday, December 3���5.  the book and in describing the  ascent and descent, Kerouac's  prose comes alive. In the final  analysis however, the novel  comes off as rather turgid and  flatly-written. It is also annoy-  ingly preachy in spots. While  several of the same characters from the earlier books  reappear briefly under different names, they seem to be  drained of energy. I found the  book a disappointment.  But if Dharma Bums failed  to measure up to the previous  two books, it was by no means  bad enough to dampen my  enthusiasm. Sections from  such unpublished works as  Desolation Angels and Visions  Of Cody began to appear in  Evergreen Review and other  literary magazines, promising  better things to come. By this  time, I had become familiar  with the other writers and  poets who were considered  pari of the Beat movement:  William Burroughs; Gregory  Corso; Lawrence Fcrlinghetti;  John Clcllon Holmes and the  aforementioned Ginsberg and  Snyder. All appear as characters in both Kerouac's books  and in thc novel Go by Clcllon Holmes. The latter book  predated On The Road's  publication by several years  and, while not entirely successful, is fascinating in that  it presents another view of the  New York bohemian scene  during the same time-period,  including one of the first  objective looks at Kerouac  himself, albeit slightly-  fictionalized.

I refer to  Peter Trowcr's Bush Poems  and Bus Griffiths' Now You're  Logging.  If Peter Trower never writes  or publishes another poem  about logging, it won't matter; Bush Poems is thc definitive edition of his logging-  poetry and a landmark in the  poetry of lhc West Coast. Peter Trower went logging in thc  forests of this raincoasl when  hc was young and stayed at it.  on and off, for Ihe belter or  worse (depending on which  stories he tells) part of his life.  When he began to write poetry, he naturally drew his  images and subjects from the  environment and profession in  which he spent so much of his  time. The significance of  Trower's poetry lies in his  having transcended thc logger-poet epithet to write  poems lhal are, first of all,  good poems and arc. incidentally, about logging.Ihcy are  also aboul fear, courage,  death,beauty, and man's  place in Ihe universe.  His real achievement has  been to prove that "bunk-  housc-poetry" doesn't have to  lake the singsong doggerel  ballad-form popularized by  Kipling, Service and Swanson.  Not to deny Peter his literary  ancestors; a number of rctros-  spcclivc poems from Between  The Sky And Thc Splinters,  his first collection of logging-  poems, reappear in Bush  Poems and still show thc  influence of those early mentors. Any poet worth his salt  has learned lhc rudiments of  his craft by imitating their  example; thc lessons they  teach about the metrical and  musical properties of words  are invaluable. But poets  mature, find their own natural  voice, and so do their verses.  Early poems like "The Ballad of Booted Bondage"  and "Like a War" have been  re-worked and lightened up,  like roughnecks spruced-up  for the family portrait, since  they have to stand in company  with some of Trower's best  work; "Grease For The  Wheels of Winter", "The  Last Handfallcrs", "The  Mountains/The Valley" and  "The Alders". Bush Poems  also contains a number of  good previously unpublished  poems.  If Peter's Ragged Horizons,  published earlier this vear by  McClelland & Stewart,  demonstrated the range of his  poetry, Bush Poems sounds its  depth. When hc first began  publishing his work, Peter  Trower was a curiosity; a log  ger who happened to write  poetry. Now he's a big-league  poet who happens to have  been a logger and Bush Poems  is a special kind of book; a  finely crafted testament to the  elemental "larger than life"  profession that forged the man  and his poetics:  Logging's a bit  like writing poetry.  Mind-cables wrench loose  the sluggish ideas,  sometimes to wedge them  in hopeless canyons  and knowing just when  to blow the whistle  and cut them off  is a knack  of no small importance.  Peter learned that "knack"  in a hard school where failure can cost you your neck,  but thc fact that he did learn  it is apparent on every page  of Bush Poems.  The large format of the book  enhances not only the poems,  but preserves the impact of  Bus Griffiths' marvellous  illustrations. It's always difficult to describe graphic work  verbally, but the originals of  thc Bush Poems illustrations  have drawn superlatives from  everyone who's seen them.  Not only are the scenes Bus  Griffiths portrays accurate to  the finest detail (if you could  unravel one of his cables you  can be damn sure you'd find  exactly the right number of  strands) but, though he's a  self-taught artist, he has the  hand of an engraver and an  instinctive sense of composition that is stunning. The illustrations for Bush Poems don't  merely "illustrate" thc poems  though there arc connections  between the plates and specific poems; 1 think "accompany" is a better word, since  any one or all of them stand  on their own as powerful  works of art. The sequence of  six "high-rigging" illustrations in the centre of thc book  is a minor masterpiece all by  itself.  Bus Griffiths' major masterpiece is Now You're Logging,  an "illustrated novel" of some  Drama Club  Would-be actors, actresses, directors, stage managers, set and costume designers, and those interested in  attending drama workshops  are invited to join a drama  group now forming with the  hope of having a production  ready in the spring. The group  will be organized now and get  underway after Christmas,  and ths first meeting will  be held on Wednesday, December 6.

Howard While.  Pete Trower and I compared  notes on thc difficulty of adequately describing Now  You're Logging. You try to tell  people aboul it and you come  out with something like.  "Well, it's like a comic  strip, only it isn't because it's  all so real, and it's like a novel, only in a big-format hardcover like an art hook, except  that it's about logging and you  could jusl about run your own  camp after you've read it,  but it's about a lot of other  things loo,, and...Aw. what  Ihe hell, you have to see it  to believe it."  Howard White . dmittcd  that vvhen hc talked about  the project so many people  looked at him like he'd slipped  his moorings that hc was  beginning to get nervous,  but two weeks ago he got hold  of an advance copy from thc  printer and just the briefest  glance put everything back in  perspective. The book is a  winner on all counts; good  storytelling; scrupulous  accuracy of detail, and superb  graphic art; not to mention a  thorough lesson in the history and practice of logging  on this coast. It takes a lot of  nerve for a publisher to produce so handsomely something that can't be easily  described, much less conveniently pigeon-holed. If  sticking your neck out has  notorious disadvantages,  il obviously has one great  advantage in enabling you to  sec just a lit tit? bit further  ahead than everyone else.  Now You're Logging is an  instant collectors' item. Bus  Griffiths and Howard White  deserve to sec the time,  energy and money devoted to  this project well rewarded.  With Christmas only a  month away, Bush Poems by  Peter Trower and Bus Griffiths, at $5.95 and Now You're  Logging, by Bus Griffiths, at  $15.00 are things worth keeping in mind.

Hwy. 101     3  Gibsons      5  The programme of Native  Environmental Studies is now  underway as evidenced by the  splendid presentation of slides  and commentary given at the  Educational meeting at Chatelech Junior High School on  November 9, but as Clarence  Joe told Ihe Coast News:  "It is only just starting".  Asked whether he was happy  with the programme. Clarence  said. "The kids arc happy  with it, and if they're happy,  then I'm happy."  Clarence was speaking of  thc realization of a long-felt  desire on the part of the  Sechelt Indian people to see  the establishment of an  Educational Programme and  Curriculum ihat would  record and teach the culture  and heritage of the Sechell  Nation. The programme came  into effect largely through the  work of Clarence Joe Senior.  Teddy Dixon, thc Band's  Home School Co-ordinator and  Ihe School Board's Co-ordinator of Special Services, Ed  Nicholson, with the support of  District Superintendent  of Schools, John Denley,  the Board of School Trustees  and thc Sechell Band Council  with the participation of their  Economic Advisor, Derwyn  Owen.  Teddy Dixon also spoke of  the students' enthusiasm and  said that some of the students  would like lo go for ten days  and then have four days off.  He said that initially the  Band had been looking at the  idea of providing cultural  enrichment for native children  at Tsoh-nye (Deserted Bay),  thc site of thc project, and an  important traditional village  site of the Sechelt Nation  about eight miles from the  head of Jervis Inlet. Hc said  thai casual conversations  with Ed Nicholson during  ferry rides to and from Vancouver in the company of Gilbert Joe had led to the establishment of the first committee  (Clarence. Teddv and Ed) on  Tuesday,   May   11.   1976  to  i /��% ittk 1  ESSO ECONOMIC  THE NEW LITTLE  THAT CAN SAVE  A LOT OF FUEL.  The new Esso Econoblue takes  up only 3'/e> square feet of floor  space. Yet it is designed for maximum  fuel economy.  This oil-fired, forced air system  uses a better mixture of air and  oil vapour for more complete combustion. And because the mixture  is also recycled, you get more heat  out of every drop of oil.  If yourold furnace works at 66%  efficiency, for example, Econoblue  could reduce oil consumption by  20%. This means if you now use  750 gallons of fuel a year, Econoblue could save you 150 gallons.  So, if your furnace has  been showing signs of age lately,  don't wait until it gives up  altogether.  Call Esso 1 iome Comfort.  The sooner you do, the sooner  you'll start saving fuel.  investigate the possibilities  of creating a course in Native  Studies which would be of  interest to both native Indian  and non-Indian students.  Ed Nicholson told the Coast  News of the meeting of the  minds and the huge amount  of time which went into making the dream a reality.  In the thirty-five page Native  Environmental Studies Programme proposal which he  drew up, including, as it  docs, detailed curriculum  suggestions, he sees the fusion of Clarence Joe's dream  and Teddy Joe's concern over  problems arising from non-  attendance of Indian students  when they were engaged in  traditional family activities.  This document is the basis on  which lhc programme has  been activated.  The programme objectives  are defined as follows in thc  document, and stress is pul  on the intention of providing  enrichment for students rather  than some sort of "Alternate  School":  1. To develop an appreciation by bolh native Indian and  non-Indian students of the  history and culture of thc Sechelt Indian Nation in their  traditional environment, by  living and studying in that environment.  2. To create an awareness of  man's fundamental relationship with his environment by  studying Ihe geography and  ecology of ihe Pacific Coast  Region, particularly Jervis  Inlet.  3. To demonstrate to thc  students enrolled in environmental studies how lhc original inhabitants of the above  area developed an harmonious  relationship with Iheir natural  surroundings by effective and  efficient utilization of natural  resources.  4. To permit the students to  experience the importance of  both self-reliance and group  co-operation in achieving self-  sufficiency in a natural environment.  5. To give students an opportunity to understand the  inter-relationship between  various academic subjects by  relating them to a common  theme.  6. To create a desire in these  same students to discover  more about their surroundings, albeit in a regular  classroom environment.  With the groundwork thus  laid  in  the  Proposal  which  included site development,  necessary buildings, equipment and so forth, there  remained the task of staffing  the facility and selecting  twenty students. This was a  joint project with the School  Board assuming the responsibility for providing the  educational staff and the Sechelt Band Council the responsibility for the rest. From  the fifty-one student applications received for the first  semester, a joint School  Board/Indian Band screening  committee selected the twenty  successful applicants.  It was apparent from the  Coast News' three-day visit  to the site that all parties had  done an exceptionally successful job in selecting both students and staff for the programme. Thc Coast News'  reporter has been actively-  associated with education  both in Canada and the United  Kingdom since 1963 and he  expressed himself as being  most impressed with thc education taking place at Tsoh-  nye under the direction of  teacher-in-charge, Ron Fearn,  and assistant teacher, Greg  Miller. Together with Boat  Operator and instructor in  carving and Indian Arts  Jamie Dixon, cook and instructor in spinning and  weaving Joan Marshall, and  maintenance man Paul Dupre,  these teachers constitute a  very effective team whose  work will be thc topic of next  week's article on the Native  Environmental Studies Programme.  World Youth volunteers  By Jo-Anne Bushnell  Earlier this month, thc  Canada World Youth Group  responded to a request for  volunteers to assist thc elderly  with some outside chores  which they could not do themselves.  The youth group is composed of fourteen young  adults, seven from various  parts of Canada, and seven  from Indonesia. All had been  carefully screened and selected to take part in this programme. Since their arrival  on the Sunshine Coast ten  weeks ago. the group has  become an integral part of the  community. They have been  voluntarily sharing thc daily  work load in small businesses,  learning aboul the working  world in a small town. Two in  thc programme have been  working with the Coast News  staff. Besides this daily work,  the Indonesians have been  sharing their culture with thc  communitv, putting on cultural shows, and educating the  public about Indonesia.  On November 11 and again  on November 25, the group  divided themselves into work  parties to rake leaves, clean  windows, split wood, plant  bulbs and do a variety of other  tasks which needed to be  done. Local volunteers responded to provide transporta  tion. The recipients were  grateful to have had these  chores done for them; the  group enjoyed meeting these  people and being able to help.  The group demonstrates the true spirit of  voluntcerism. Relative  strangers to the community  are willing to give their time  and their energy to help other  people   who   arc   in   need.  More people are becoming  increasingly aware of the  presence of the Canada World  Youth Group. Unfortunately,  just as they become a part of  the Sunshine Coast community, they must leave us for  Indonesia.

Well, it may surprise the  Socreds to learn that the people of the coast and the Island  are taxpayers too. These taxpayers are well aware of the  fact that the ferry system does  not make a profit���just as  hospitals, schools and highways don't make profits.  Can we now expect to see  signs on thc highways to the  Cariboo telling thc residents  of that good Socred riding  that the cost of their journey is  subsidized by the taxpayers of  British Columbia���because it  is, just as much as any ferry  route.  And while we are putting up  signs, perhaps there should  be one on the door of Premier  Bennett's office, reading:  "The cost of this office is  subsidized by thc taxpayers  of British Columbia. In 1978  the amount of the subsidy will  be $754,000."  But if the new signs that  have gone up on the ferries  are an insult to the people  who use them, they are also a  sad admission that the Socred  government simply does not  understand that the ferry  system is an essential part of  the transportation network of  this province���many parts of  which are separated from each  other by water. Consequently  they cannot see running ferries as an essential part of  government service. Instead  they think they are running  some kind of cut-rate cruise  ships sailing between Aca-  pulco and Pango Pango and  that the lay-abouts who are  the passengers should be reminded that they are getting  away with something they  don't deserve.  Well, if that's the impression the Socreds are trying to  leave, it just isn't working.  As a fellow passenger in the  cafeteria line-up observed:  "If that's supposed to make  me feel guilty, 1 don't."

Having earlier described the C.B.C. as Canada's  first line of defence along its  undefended border, he was  confronted with a number of  independent film makers who  wanted to know just why  C.B.C. refuses to accept their  feature films while the Public Broadcasting station in  Seattle, Channel 9, is running  a special Cinema B.C. series  featuring Canadian films  made by both freelancers and  the National Film Board.  The answer given earlier  as to why C.B.C. couldn't  be more like P.B.S. ��� that it  has a different mandate and  is required to be all things to  all people ��� really wasn't  much help, because presumably, the mandate would  apply also to Canadian film  makers as much as to Canadian singers, musicians or  athletes.  As far as B.C. is concerned  the answer is actually quite  simple. There just isn't time  in the schedule. What regional  time there is for programmes  by British Columbians for  British Columbians is a daily  thirty minutes for the Bob  Switzer Show, a weekly half-  hour foi Klahanie and the  weekly hour for Pacific Report. The flexibility to schedule a couple of hours or even  ninety uninterrupted minutes  for a feature film just isn't  there.  Len put his finger on part  of the problem when he said  that being dependent upon  commercial revenues for even  a small proportion of your  budget inevitably results in  the tail wagging the dog. The  commercial imperative is  dominant and in reality  the schedule is decided in  New York.  The C.B.C. is often criticized for carrying American  programming; Rhoda, Barney Miller, Three's Company,  et al ��� programmes which  get high ratings and thus  attract advertisers, but if we  were to give some of them up  so that we could air some  Canadian feature films would  the advertisers be assured of  that big audience?  Feature films and dramas  do have a loyal following, but  it is a specialized rather than a  mass audience, one C.B.C.  has been cultivating by using  its own film makers rather  than freelancers. It really is  little wonder Canadian film  makers and directors migrate  south of the border. Even if  you are a reasonably well-  known Canadian film maker,  a Claude Jutras or Allan  King, and have had your films  shown on television, and won  national and international  awards, still no theatre will  carry them for general distribution.   Film distributors don't  believe people will go to see  films which have already been  previewed on T.V. and says  the C.B.C. should put up the  money for any such gamble.  The C.B.C. with enough financial problems thinks its  first duty is to make programmes. It is a problem for  the struggling Canadian film  industry.  But back to the B.C. film  makers and their problem with  the C.B.C.  Four years ago in response  to the overwhelming concern  of those who presented  briefs to the C.B.C.'s license  renewal hearings, the C.R.T.  C. set up a time table to get  the C.B.C. out of advertising. You may remember the  howls of protest which greeted  this very modest proposal to  cut back one minute per hour  for the next five years. In  fact, we would only just be beginning to notice the difference! The C.B.C. understandably was scared to give  up a source of revenue over  which it had total control,  without any assurance that the  government would come up  with the difference. We, the  people, left the C.R.T.C. with  its neck out and no visible  means of support; therefore  nothing came of the idea and  four years later while we  realize the importance of the  C.B.C. it is perhaps even  less relevant to us.  Charles Dalfen referred  several times to this Canadian  characteristic, the ability to  compromise, to accept differences and live with things  we can't change. It is a quality  I find hard to knock on the one  hand, because obviously the  art of living with others and  the art of compromise are very  closely allied, yet surely it  does deprive us of the sort of  vibrant, dynamic society  which is essential if we're  going to survive as a nation?  . Just getting out of the  commercial imperative won't  change the C.B.C. overnight  however. There are other fundamental problems. What  makes P.B.S. different is that  each station is its own boss,  it doesn't have the C.B.C.'s  mandate to support national  unity or a national identity.  The U"S. doesn't have to  concern itself with Canada.  The C.B.C. reflects Canada  only too well ��� with its centralized structure. What  chance is there of, for example, a festival of B.C. films on  C.B.U.T. until C.B.C. British  Columbia is more than a  name ��� an outpost of the  C.B.C. empire regulated in,  Toronto by Toronto's stan-  ards of what is good for us?  The C.B.C. recognizes that  change is coming, though it  seems they are not able to  overcome the corporate inertia and make those changes  themselves.  Len Lauk favoured a Royal  Commission to study the  whole Canadian Broadcasting system but Charles Dalfen spoke vehemently against  such a waste of time, money,  and effort when we need  action now.  The Conservatives I'm told  have a plan for decentralization of the C.B.C. We'd  be well advised to study it  carefully.

Twenty-  five thousand commuter cards  are presently in circulation in  the two areas.  S.P.C.A.  It looks like the newly,  almost-formed Sunshine Coast  S.P.C.A. has lots of energy  behind it. Talking with Bill  Waikey on Saturday, the new  President said he was happy  the way things were going.  The structure of the organization will be a bit different  than before. The coast will  be broken into areas, with  approximately the same boundaries as the fire departments. Each area will have a  .designated member, who will  look into any complaints in  their own area. If it turns out  that the complaint has to be  acted on, then the member  will bring in Len Wray, who  has been appointed the Inspector, and he'll deem what  action is necessary. Because  the member lives in the area,  it's hoped that it will mean he  will have more insight into  the situation (makes sense).  There's going to be a membership drive on the 16th  and 23rd of December, at the  Sunnycrest Mall and the Trail  Bay Mall, and if it can be  arranged, somewhere in the  Pender area too.  One thing that's realized by  the members is that each  area will have different  problems. For example, the  built up areas will mostly be  concerned with dogs and  cats (apart from the occasional  bantam or two), while the  more rural areas will be con-  cerned  with  horses,   goats.  etc. This is one of the topics  that it is hoped will be discussed at the membership  drive. I'll give you more details next week; by that time  there will be more information  available.  By the way, Len Wray  has an eighteen year-old  horse that needs a good home.  Wolves:  It looks like the go-ahead  has been given to get rid of  the wolves in the Quesnel  area. Apparently they've been  after the cattle and the  ranchers are up in arms.  Even though it's our fault  in the first place, since we've  taken away their natural food,  the plight of the ranchers can  still be seen. What is inhumane is the way they are  going to do it. With a slow-  acting poison.  It's not too hard to imagine  what would happen if a neighbour's dog got into your  chickens and you decided to  Salaries  In other School Board  news, Secretary-Treasurer  Roy Mills reported on the  contract signed between the  Sechelt Teachers' Association and the Board of School  Trustees.

So why the heck are a bunch  of farmers, sportsmen and  wildlife chappies, who would  to a man probably deny that  they arc a bunch of yobo's,  getting away with it.  On thc same train of  thought. Mrs. Price from  Gower Point Road dropped  in to the office this afternoon  (Sunday). She was pretty upset when her year-old German  Shephcrd-and-husky cross  came home with its eye all  milky and looking as if it had  been clubbed. You can't  blame her, it is a pretty extreme way of telling a dog that  you don't want it to hang  around.  Odds 'n Ends:  A couple of racoons came to  a shocking end on Reed and  Payne. Allan Cripps left a  message that thc two wee  furry beasties had been  hanging around the area for  a couple of months, when for  some reason, on subsequent  evenings, they climbed up a  power pole and became conductors between two hot  points on Ihe transformer.  Hydro has restored power to  the area, but could do nothing  for the racoons.  There are still lots of salmon running up the creeks.  On Saturday I counted around  fifty of them under the Chapman Creek Bridge, and they  are spawning just below the  fish ladder at Wilson Creek.

The First Canadian Bank  Bank of Montreal  Gibsons Branch   686-2216  League  standings  No league games were  scheduled due to Provincial  Cup playdowns this weekend.  Wanderers took advantage  of the time off to recover from  injuries to players Gary Davies, Frank Havies, Duncan  Campbell, Jimmy Sawer,  Robbie Williams, and Nick  Bergnach. Next week's schedule is not yet available and  the following is present league  standing:  Sons of  09 7  10 6  i .  T.   L.   P.  The cry of "Sweep, Sweep" rang out at Ihe Gibsons Winter Club last week as the  local club hosted a very successful bonspiel.  Elphinstone Wanderers reports  The Wanderers travelled to  the mainland Saturday.  November 18, to notch their  fifth win of the season over  league opponents Cliff  Avenue, making their record  for the season a respectable  five wins, one tie and two  losses.  Thc injury-plagued Wanderers were outplayed for  much of the game but capitalized on their infrequent opportunities. The first goal was  scored at the ten minute mark  of the first half by ever-  dangerous Robbie Williams.  Cliff Avenue pressed for the  remainder of the first half but  were constantly thwarted by  a solid defensive corp led by  Centre Back Ken Bland and  Fullbacks Art Dew and Graham Chapman. When thc  opposition did succeed in  breaking through. Goalie  Jan Dc Reus preserved his  shut-out by a strong performance and played by far his  besl game of the year.  The second goal was scored  by striker Dan Baker late in  thc second half with a quick  move which ended with the  ball being driven into the  lower right side of the opposition goal which struck the  death knell for the Cliff Avenue team.  Injuries forced thc Wanderers to forfeit their November 19 Sunday game against  the Sechelt Renegades for a  berth in the Provincial Cup  playdowns. Gary Davics and  Frank Havies are still on thc  injury list with leg' injuries  while     Duncan     Campbell,  Robbie Williams, and Nick  Bergnach suffered injuries  in the Cliff Avenue contest.  Thc club wishes to welcome  back Art Dew who played an  outstanding aggressive  game at Fullback. Also Graham Chapman has recently  returned from a six-week  European vacation and is  quickly playing himself back  into shape. Also, a familiar  face from last year is Danny  Paul, who turned in a steady  performance at Halfback.  Frankie Hoehne, instrumental  in bringing organized soccer  to Gibsons, has left thc club  due to work commitments  and will be greatly missed.  Wedding bells chimed recently for Ken Bland and his  new bride, Lisa, and they have  our congratulations and  best wishes. Ken even found  time to play a game of soccer  only one day after the wedding which demonstrates the  great enthusiasm shown by  everyone associated with the  team this year.  A second half schedule wi  be printed in the paper a;  soon as available for our sup  porters. See vou al Langdale.  Fight the  king  cripplers  Emphysema, Aslhma, Tuberculosis,  Chronic Bronchitis. Air Pollution  Use  Christmas  Seals  The Wanderers have two  games in hand over the league  leaders. Two previous cancellations against Sons of Norway and Shamrock Labatts  will be played at Langdale  however dates are not yet  available. Providing wins are  notched in both games the  Wanderers will be close to  the top of their leaugue.  Referring to the Coast  News article of November 21  captioned "Renegades win  Again" by J & Co., we  comment as follows. For your  information, the Wanderers  have never defaulted a game  intheir four year history and  enjoy good competition which  the Renegades have always  provided. However, as we are  certain even the Renegades  are aware, soccer is a game  played by eleven players and  not seven as would have been  the case had the game been  played. The cancellation of the  previous week's  game  was  Norway  Belfast  Western  Union  Squamish  Elph.  Wanderers 08  Shamrock  Labatts      08  Cliff  Avenarc     10  Trojans 10  Musqueam    09  Coach-  House  10  09  5   I   2   11  3   2   3   00  06  05  05  09   2   1   6   05      J  brought about by the decision  of the referee due to extremely  hazardous conditions brought  about by ice completely covering the Langdale pitch.  Sportsmanship and fairness  are always important parts of  the game, especially with our  Sunshine Coast rivals, the  Sechelt Renegades. However  the article appearing in the  Coast News of November 21  by J. & Co. was unfair and  unjust as the reasons for the  cancellation and the forfeit  were clearly explained to  the writer.  Good luck to the Renegades in the Provincial  Playdowns!  To Ken Verhulst the injured Wanderers player,  we wish a speedy recovery.  Ken just underwent a second  knee operation in Vancouver  and is back on the Peninsula.  f  I 886-   ?. WOOKs,.   7744 4  I  V%4.  \  sssssso  Corner of School Road  and Gower Point Rd.

The critic of The  New Yorker magazine wrote  of this film:  "Because movies mostly  still rank aesthetically as  vulgarian upstarts compared  to grand opera, the relief and  surprise among Miss Cailas'  faithful followers was breathtaking (at the film's gala  world premiere at the Paris  Opera] when her cinematic  Medea turned out to contain  the greatest acting performance of her career ��� being,  moreover, immovably set in  its perfections by the camera,  so that the grandeur of her  accomplishment cannot alter  or diminish from one showing  to another, as did her singing performances...To her  physical artistry Pasolini not  only has supplied the melodramatic sweep and scope  of the ancient classic tragedy  but has placed it in terrains so  little known to us as to seem  truly the antique Mediterranean world, which we have  just discovered for the first  time...In its basic elements,  Medea ranks as the bloodiest  horror story of the early Hellenic dramatists' imaginations. Owing to the presence  of Maria Cailas, it can be said  that in this new Medea  there is contained acting of a  supreme dramatic achievement, which will rank the film  as a rare work of cinematographic art."  1 believe that it was a bold  stroke of genius on the part of  Pasolini to cast Maria Cailas  in this non-singing role which,  in the Cherubini version, had  been one of her starring operatic roles. 1 remember the  musical score as being strangely evocative of the barbaric  theme and times of over 2,000  years ago, and the costumes  and settings are outstanding.  On Monday last week, 1  went to Vancouver to see for a  second time one of my favourite films, Les Enfants Du  Paradise, a film which 1 first  saw two years ago at the Annual General Meeting of thc  Canadian Federation of Film  Societies held that year  (1976) in Cornwall. Ontario.  1 had long wanted to see thc  film and had wanted to screen  it for thc Film Society, but it  was lost for a number of years.  The people who used to distribute this film became bankrupt, and the film (one 35mm  print and one 16mm) finally  turned up at a railway auction  of unclaimed property. From  the time I first saw thc film,  I wanted to sec it again, and  apparently so did several other members of our local Society for 1 saw six of them at  this one night screening,  several seeing it for a second  or third time. It's that sort of  film. The Ridge Theatre was  full for this occasion, and  approximately 300 people  were turned away. Normally,  I would have endeavoured to  book thc film for showing  here at the Twilight Theatre,  but the length of the film  (three hours) makes this impractical with a starting time  of 9:00 p.m.  The Film Society's next  presentation   isDersu Uzalu  *���     jg     �������-    n     "���"  ace  -3LC-  HOLIDAY  HOME BAKING  Starting December 10  At Gibsons Fish Market  Christmas Cakes, Ginger Bread Men, Shortbread and Tarts.  home baking by Trish  E-      3F      JC      JC        Jam.       ar        ac      -3  886-7817  THE MIME SHOW  Wilh Gerardo Avila & Patricia Smith   Saturday, i>cemtier 2. 8 00  p.m .Cedar Grove Elemenlary Gym, tickets: $1.00 ������ $2 50  Recreation Service 885-5440  POTTERY SALE  Pat Forsi will be having a sale ol pots Saturday  November 25 at ihe  Craft Studio (corner ol Hwy 101 and North Rd } Doors will open at  9:30. air  SUNSHINE COAST LIONS CLUB GIANT BINGO  At Sechelt Legion November 30 Doors open al 7 00 p m Firsl Game  at 6:00 p.m Advance tickets only  Entry  3 cards for $5 00. addition,  al cards $1 OOeach Tickets available al Big Mac s.
