 ISBftSS.  B0��-O,fi  ���JSSC5B-"  iBRAK*  The Sunshine  Published at Gibsons, B.C.  15* per copy on newsstands  Serving the Sunshine Coast since 1945  September 12,1978  Volume 31, Number 37  Co-operation pays off  Prompt clean-up  on Tuwanek spill  Prompt and co-operative action by local businessmen coordinated by Provincial Emergency Programme Co-ordinator  A.D.McPhee of Sechelt averted a major ecological setback In  the Tuwanek area of Porpoise Bay last week.  The situation developed when vandals opened the hose and  poured 1,500 gallons of dicsel fuel into the bay. The fuel was  the property of Jackson Brothers Logging Company.  On receipt of the information that the spill had occurred.  Coordinator MePhee contacted Ralph Harding of Shell Bulk  Oil Depot in Gibsons where hc was aware that oil spill control  gear, trade named Conwed, was stored. Harding immediately  made his material available and it was rushed to Ihe scene of  the spill by Len Wray of Len Wray's Transfer Ltd.  Meanwhile MePhee had also contacted the Gulf Oil station in  Sechelt, being aware that they too had a supply of Conwed,  described by MePhee as being "a large rolled blanket of  blotter", it nd the second supply of blotter was rushed from  Francis Peninsula to Porpoise Bay on a Jackson Brothers truck.  Finally Tyee Air of Sechelt flew a third supply of the spill  blotters from Vancouver and the combined sources proved  adequate to the task of cleaning up the oil.  Co-ordinator MePhee was quick to praise the co-operation  he had received in dealing with the emergency and to point out  that fortune was also on the side of the cleanup crew since the  water area involved was surrounded by logs and both the water  and thc wind were very quiet at the time of the incident.  Roads blocked  on Saturday  Traffic was diverted from  Highway 101 to the Lower  Road at the cemetery when a  tree, about half a kilometre  towards Sechelt from the  Sangster property, fell at  approximately 10:00 p.m. on  Saturday, September 9,  severing the power lines and  shooting flames into the air  as a result of arcing in the  tree. Not long after the traffic had been diverted, there  was a two car accident on  Lower Road which resulted in  one person being taken to  hospital. This was followed  shortly by a three car accident  which resulted in four people  being taken to the hospital,  and another two car accident  from which no hospitalization  resulted. All three accidents  occured within a period of  five minutes.  Traffic travelling both  ways between Gibsons and  Sechelt was halted for approximately one hour before the  wreckage could be sufficiently  cleared to permit travel again  on the Lower Road. Cars  were backed up for over half  a kilometre towards Gibsons  from the cemetery by the time  the traffic began to flow again  at approximately 11:00 p.m.  On Sunday evening, one  gentleman was still in hospital  with a fractured ankle, and  a female who received facial  lacerations and had her nose  broken is expected to require  further treatment in Vancouver. Of the injured parties,  one was from Vancouver,  another from Alberta while  the remainder were local  residents. Constable Dolhan,  who was on highway patrol  duty at the time, estimated  the damage, all of it to the  seven vehicles involved, at  $16,000. One of the vehicles  was a 1978 Plymouth Cutlass  which had been purchased  the day before the accident.  No names were available,  and the accidents are still  under investigation.  The 27-foot whaler, PeJIcan, is towed into Gibsons  Harbour by the Coast Guard hovercraft late  Saturday afternoon after capsizing off Popham  Island.   See story below and other pictures on  Pages Six and Seven.  Capsized off Popham I.  Three plucked from watery grave  Three young men were plucked from the sea late Saturday   but failed to spot the distressed sailboat,  afternoon when their twenty-seven foot whaler, PELICAN,      "Man, I thought that was it," said Manulak.   "I mean, wc  capsized off Popham Island as they tried to reach Gibsons Har-  were really cold and It was going to bc dark soon and this fish  investigation continues  Tordon charges  being considered  The provincial Pesticide Control Bureau is considering  charges in the matter o, thc herbicide Tordon 10-K which was  spilled into Clowholm lake last week at thc B.C. Hydro substation near Salmon Inlet.  Pesticide Control Bureau Manager, Bayne Vance, when  contacted by the Coasl News said that there were several  areas of concern tu his department in the matter. The first  question that came up was the question of how much of the  herbicide was in thc Hydro storage shed, lt appeared that not  even Hydro officials were sure how much herbicide bad been  stored. Thc chemical had been in the storage shed lor several  years. How many was not known but estimates ranged between  live and nine years.  The second principal area of concern for thc Pesticide Control Branch was thc question of availability to the public. "Wc  arc not sure how appropriate the shed in question was for a  storage area." said Vance. Some initial evidence from the  scene indicated that thc storage shed was unlocked and un-  loekable. A Hydro official was quoted in the city newspapers  last week as being of the opinion that the question of whether or  not the shed was locked was 'academic' since the door to the  shed was reputedly kicked in.  The third area of concern involved the labelling on thc herbicide containers. Again initial evidence, pending a full investigation, had indicated that at least sonic of the labels on the  containers were not readable.  It is understood that both the federal Environmental Protection Service and the provincial Pesticide Control Bureau  arc investigating the situation. Insofar as the provincial authorities are concerned, the Coast News learned that should charges  prove warranted they would be laid under thc Pesticide Control  Act Section 3b on Storage and Section 40 on Labelling.  it if is discovered that the regulations have not been adequately observed a fine of $2,000 or six months imprisonment,  or both, could result.  Gibsons-Regional  Waterand Sewers  bour In rough seas. Ric Manulak and BUI Atamaehuk of Vancouver and Byron Munro of Garden Bay were brought into  Gibsons Harbour just before dark on the Coast Guard hovercraft out of Vancouver with their sunken sailboat In tow.  The PELICAN was running before the wind which was gust-  ing to thirty miles an hour with three-foot swells when a sudden  gust from an unexpected quarter capsized her. "I was lying in  the cockpit," said Manulak, the boat's owner, "and then  suddenly I was swimming."  The most frightening experience was that of Atamaehuk,  however, like his companions twenty-four years old. When hc  was thrown Into the frigid waters he came up underneath thc  main sail of the boat. "I was afraid that I was going to get  tangled in the rigging," said Atamaehuk, "but I dove down as  far as I could and managed to swim out from underneath the  sail."  boat didn't see us. I felt like a real loser.1  Atamaehuk on his third attempt managed to retrieve two  parachute flares from under the afterdeck of the sunken boat  and within a few moments after they were fired a boat, which  was not identified but was out of the Richmond Yacht Club  came by. The occupants of the boat threw a life jacket with rope  attached and one by one the three men struggled through the  rough seas and into the Richmond boat.  "Man, were we cold by that time. None of us could climb  into the boat under our own power. We had to be lifted in."  Two more fish boats were attracted by the flares and, shortly  thereafter, the Coast Guard. Wrapped in blankets, the three  were transported by the Coast Guard hovercraft Into Gibsons  Harbour with their sunken sailboat being towed behind.  Among the gear missing from the capsized sailboat were  one wrapped main sail, an attache case containing wallets, a  All three men swam back to the partially submerged boal, green sea bag with sleeping bags and a wallet, a blue five-  then tried to right her by cutting the sail in the waler loose from gallon gas tank, and a red three gallon gas tank.

A fish boat went by not too far away the Coast News office for forwarding to the owners.  A joint meeting of the Gibsons Village and Regional  Board Utilities Committee  hcldif thc Gibsons Municipal  Hall on Thursday. September  7, saw pretty full agreement  reached on the proposed cooperation between the two  jurisdictions on the supply  of water in the eastern end of  the Sunshine Coast but some  indication that more discussion would have to take place  on the questions of co-operation in sewage disposal for  the area from Langdale to  Gibsons boundary.  Only a few minor matters  remain to be worked on thc  water agreement but some  serious    negotiation    would  appear to lie ahead on the  sewage proposal. The proposal would appear to run thc  risk of eliciting the same type  of jurisdictional dispute that  erupted over thc control of  water facilities last year and  both council members and  regional board members  were emphatic in their desire  to avoid a similar dispute.  It was emphasized to members of thc press present,  however, that the joint  committees were still in the  working paper stage of discussion and that all options  outlined by engineers Dayton  and Knight would be considered fully.  At Sechelt Council  Roads and plans  Work has begun under John Pinkster on the new Sechelt Legion Cenotaph. The  cenotaph will be faced with clear local granite, the step will be faced with black  Portugese marble and the cross will be of blue African granite.  In the Gibsons Chambers  By George Cooper  At its September 5 meeting,  Council heard two petitions,  one for blacktop and one for  extension of beer-serving  hours. Jack Myers asked for  ditching and black-topping  of two hundred feet of Bay  Road parallel to Skyline that  serves three properties. "We  have paid taxes for twenty- club has put out a real com  five years and nothing has munity effort in its part of  been done to it by the Vil-   this     blacktopping,"     said  lage," said one resident, "and  it looks like an abandoned  skid road." Next budget,  soothed Council, with a little  ditching work possible this  year. Blacktop around the  aquatic centre and its  approaches is part of this  year's budget as are all  major projects concerning  the Village.     "The  Curling  Alderman Hume.  The Cedars Neighbourhood Pub petitioned for  extended hours beyond their  present II p.m. closing.  The owner, J.Kavanagh,  referring to recent amendments to liquor control that  permit opening from 9 a.m.  to 2 a.m., asked that he bc  allowed to remain open to  midnight as a start. "RCMP  and nearby residents concur  Please turn to Page Nine  Sechelt Council gave  approval in principle to the  Community Plan now under  consideration. The approval  in principle was given at thc  regular meeting of the Sechelt  Council held on Wednesday,  September 6. Thc approval  was given with the proviso  that thc Council would be  guided by the Community  Plan when formulating policy  matters.  Council also adopted a  policy proposed by planner  Doug Roy with regard to thc  approach to bc used for  development proposals. Roy  proposed that developers  should present a preliminary  plan to the Village Clerk and  Planner. It was accordingly  moved and passed that any  future commercial project  should have plans submitted  with covering letter to thc  Clerk and Planner and then  referred to Council.  In thc matter of thc Arena  Road it was moved by Alderman Morgan Thompson and  seconded by Alderman Jorgensen that thc Village,  together with Len Van Egmond, should open up Trail  Avenue rather than Marine  Way. It was felt that thc  first step should be to have the  road properly dedicated and  that the Council should go on  record as finding means  to  finance the paving of it  in 1979. Van Egmond said  he could begin work on the  road the following day.  In other Council business  thc Council heard Don McDonald, former owner of the  Jolly Roger Inn, outline his  plans for a hotel on Teredo  Avenue. Pending a soil test,  McDonald said hc had no  plans to show at thc present  time but hc estimated that his  projected hotel would take  aboul one year to build.  Bud Koch of Sunshine  General Motors informed  Council that hc would designate a walk for pedestrians in  front of his building and install a chain rail to prevent  parking across it.  Miss Dc Langc, in a presentation to Council, asked that  consideration be given to the  question of the bus service.  She pointed out Ihat several  buses had already been taken  off in thc local area and was  fearful that when thc bus  depot was closed later this  year it would bc a further  curtailment of service. Miss  De Lange pointed out that  seniors and lhc handicapped  were dependent on thc bus  service and would be severely  disadvantaged if more reductions took place. Thc subject  was placed on thc agenda  for the next Council meeting.  A joint meeting of the Gibsons Council and Regional Board Utilities Committees  discussed sewage and water co-operation in Gibsons last week.

A rare opportunity  One can only applaud the decision of  thc Gibsons Kinsmen Club to underwrite thc appearance here of the Tamahnous rheatre Company's production of  Liquid (iold nexl week. Il is nol by any  means a typical community service and  thc Kinsmen deserve much credit for  having the courage t�� try something new  and ai short notice.  It was our pleasure in April while the  play was running in Vancouver to see  the show and there can be absolutely  no hesitation in recommending that as  many of our local residents as possible  should support the Kinsmen's worthwhile initiative by attending thc performance scheduled for September 20 at the  Elphinstone Secondary School. Not only  is ii a most sprightly, amusing and  tin,tight-provoking musical, but it is set  right here on thc Sunshine Coast in an  imaginary Envers Inlet, for which vou can  read whichever of our many attractive  coastal mini-communities happens to  bc your favourite.  It is rare for a dynamic and vigorous  professional theatre company to bring  their work from Vancouver to us. Tamahnous was particularly anxious to do so  in this case because of the play's setting.  Their show was written and performed by  west coast artists and, while it is a  boisterous melodrama, it is nonetheless  faithful to the ethos of our coast and an  absolute delight.  Both the theatre company and the  Kinsmen Club deserve our thanks and  our support for affording us this rare  opportunity to see professional live  theatre on our own turf and the opportunity to see ourselves as others see us  for one night at least. It is a very good  show.  For Peace and Thriftiness  Now that Ihe Regional Board and thc  Gibsons Council have found an amicable  way in dispense and administrate water  among us, the question ol" sewage  disposal conies before us. Again the  engineers feci that the most economic  way to proceed is to have thc administration of thc sewage disposal facility  taken over by the Regional Board.  It may be that the same feelings of  territorial jurisdiction as were displayed  in the great water controversy will come  into play once again and if so the cheapest way may not be the best way. Cert-  ainlv no one has anv desire for more of  the squabbling and bitterness that thc  water proposal occasioned last year.  We would content ourselves with  observing let the people's will be done.  If the administration of sewage is seen by  the residents of the Village of Gibsons to  bc a function that should not be given  up, so be it. On the other hand, if it  does not evoke the same feelings and if  close scrutiny should reveal that there is  indeed a substantial tax saving to be  realized by the proposal that the engineering firm of Dayton and Knight seems  to favour, perhaps there is something to  bc said in favour of thriftiness.  In Praise off Regular. Elections  A headline in lhc Vancouver Province  recently indicated that Prime Minister  .lames Callaghan of Great Britain had  pulled a major political surprise by not  calling an election when the time seemed  opportunistic for his party. Thank God  there is a political leader somewhere  who is making decisions about the  dramatic process not based on thc crassest of self interest only.  One of the weaknesses of democracy as  it is practiced in Canada is thc use that  is made of the right ofa prime minister  or premier under our type of parliamentary democracy to call an election whenever he sees fit. Rather should 1 call it  an abuse of the right. Wc have watched  our federal prime minister waffle  throughout this year as eontlieting opinion polls tell him different things. Government by opinion poll is shabby  government.  Nor is Mr. Trudeau alone. Thc present  provincial government in this province  is reputed to be considering an election  despite a comfortable majority and two  more years to serve. Their predecessors  in the N.D.P. party similarly with a  comfortable majority decided to call an  election two years before they had to.  W.A.C. Bennett for twenty years called  an election on an average of between  three and four years despite the five  year mandate.  Apart from the unsettling effect on  the economic climate of constant governmental indecision, the fact of the matter  is that elections are expensive. They cost  millions of dollars and once every five  years would seem to be quite often  enough unless the government is specifically defeated in the legislature by a  vote of non-confidence.  We could have elections federal and  provincial once every five years in a  stable and consistent fashion and save  ourselves millions of dollars. Getting rid  of some of the shabby opportunism so  apparent in government circles at the  present time wouldn't do us any harm  either.  from the files of Coast News  lit   '     ,��a.7$a. ... VSiLU  em  ?M  5 YEARS AGO  Local man, Steve Littlejohn miraculously escaped death when the fully  loaded longing truck he was driving  on Vancouver Island plunged 325 feet  over a tieep cliff. Littlejohn was  thrown clear of the truck part way  down the mountain and the logs  which had broken loose and the  debris they had stirred up went  right over him.  10 YEARS AGO  A private company, B.C. Hovercraft Ltd.. has been formed to provide an up-to-date fast Hovercraft  transportation system along the  Sunshine Coast. Terminals have  been approved for Powell River,  Texada Island and Gibsons.  15 YEARS AGO  Mrs.   Isabel   Dawson   has   been  chosen to represent the Social Credit  party in the Mackenzie riding in the  upcoming provincial election.  Coasl News editor describes the  home-owner grant introduced by the  W.A.C. Bennett government as an  expensive lollipop. He points out  thai the home-owner grant gives  back about fifteen percent of the  recent one hundred per cent increase  in property taxes.  - -KflJr  20 YEARS AGO  Alex Smith of Gibsons got tangled  up with a 27-foot basking shark  weighing five tons off Popham Island  recently.  Two airmen were rescued by a  fishing boat after their jet collided  over Roberts Creek. The skipper  of the fish boat saw them parachute  into the water.  25 YEARS AGO  Mr. William Woof of Gibsons was  unsuccessful in his gallant attempt  to save the life of a neighbour, Mrs.  Stella Sheddon, when her home went  on fire. Mr. Woof carried the old  lady from the blazing building but  she died later in Vancouver from  injuries received.  30 YEARS AGO  The Coast News is published in  Halfmoon Bay.  An article by Les Peterson reveals  that the community of Gibsons is  soon to have the services of a large  dairy. The farm of H.Gough on the  Sechelt highway is to be operated as  a dairy farm by Secord Dairy.  A six man commission is appointed  in Victoria to study the problems of  school taxation.  ^^^*      <S5b l'  pi-  jIm     I  *=~kri-��+-'l- fc'it1 r  ' >��� ���--���  ^Sijririi faWL  Mia^Si"^W^''  b -vV'                                       "  *- ������'*���"-���" ^^J&S**^''  i    - *<  ***���        '    - Jn. >     ������ ,���"*. ������     , '"  ���  .   t,    ���   ",.-'* *?*     -     -  ���&,,,- _ - ���--^���r ���  ���*  \  ���'I  Vancouver, about 1913.

Musings  John Burnside  Continued from last week  The bear was badly hurt but  he did not run far. A few  hundred yards down the road  which ran past the farm hc  went to ground among some  alders. In his long life he had  been often hurt but hc had  never been defeated and he  knew no code but retaliation.  He lay in thc dark by thc side  of the road and waited.  The rancher and his wife  reached thc outer edges of  thc circle of light from the  farmhouse and paused and  listened. The roars of the  wounded grizzly had stopped  abruptly and now even Ihe  normal night sounds were  stilled. Black silence lay  before them.  "Perhaps he's gone off up  the mountain," ventured the  wife.  "Could be. He could also  be lying up somewhercs  around here."  Slowly and with rifles  cocked they ventured into thc  breathless dark. As their  eyes grew accustomed to the  night they could sec a little.  It was a cloudy night of little  moon but it afforded enough  illumination for dim perception and step by step in desperate tension they moved  through it.  "There's someone coming." Up the valley towards  thc tense pair came the lights  of an automobile. "It looks  like a Volkswagen. It's  probably Bill and Martha."  They waited in the roadway  till the ear drove up and told  their neighbours what the  situation was. There was a  hurried consultation and it  was   decided   that   the   ear  would move behind them  throwing light ahead so that  if they came upon the bear  they would be assured a  clear shot. And so they  proceeded, thc man and the  woman with rifles ahead of  the small car in a pool of  light.  On the rotid ahead of them  the grizzly lay in wait. He  was silent but his breathing  was a gurgling, grunting rasp  for he was wounded in the  lungs. Hc could hear and  smell his assailants as they  came towards him and his  unconquercd and unconquerable heart seethed for  retribution though it was  disciplined with all the  cunning of his turbulent  years. Soon, soon they  would be within his charging  reach.  The presence of thc car  and its lights were slight  comfort for still ahead of them  beyond the radius of thc  lights they knew or feared  that the wounded giant was  waiting. They moved slowly,  stopping every few minutes  to listen.  It was a narrow road of  sharp, sudden corners and  as they reached thc first  such corner the man stopped  and if anything his attitude  of listening readiness was  accentuated. "Listen,"  hc said, "do you hear that."  They stood in silence and,  as they focused, the sound  hc had heard came clearly  to both pairs of cars. It  was thc tortured, laboured,  grisly breathing of the wounded bear.  They stood motionless.  He was close by. But where?  Behind them thc car waited,  its lights shooting into the  bush as the road turned  sharp left.  The bear could discern  them dimly in the light now.  He waited as they waited  and then suddenly he could  wait no longer. He reared  himself to his full, immense  height and roared his last and  awesome challenge.  Thc great form rose on the  unlit side of the road on their  left and they were only dimly  aware of it but both rifles  rang out again and again and  the great bear fell. There  was a still and trembling  moment, then the neighbours  spilled from both sides of  the Volkswagen and threw  their arms around them.  "You got him. You got  him!"  They backed the car up  and swung it around so that  its lights illuminated thc  great fallen bear. "God,  look at thc size of him. I've  never seen a bigger bear."  Around them thc sounds of  the night resumed and  behind them the lights of the  farmhouse beckoned them  back.  In thc morning they relumed and by the light of  day inspected thc giant  corpse. They saw the broken  teeth, the old bullet wounds,  and in thc gaunt frame of  the fallen giant they read  his story. "Hc would have  had a rough jwinter," they  said.  With the aid of an expert  they skinned him and the  great pelt hangs now on their  living room wall, a reminder  of that night when thc old  bear came down from thc  mountain.  The Spell off the Yukon  BY ROBERT SERVICE  I wanted the gold, and I sought it;  I scrabbled and mucked like a slave.  Was it tamine or scurvy���I {ought it;  I hurled my youth into a grave.  I wanted the gold, and I got it-  Came out with a fortune last fall, ���  Yet somehow life's not what I thought it,  And somehow the gold isn 't all.  No! There's the land. (Have you seen it?)  It's the cussedest land that I know,  From the big, dizzy mountains that screen it  To the deep, deathlike valleys below.  Some say God was tired when He made it;  Some say it's a line land to shun;  Maybe; but there's some as would trade it  For no land on earth���and I 'm one.  You come to get rich (damned good reason);  You feel like an exile at first;  You hate it like hell for a season,  And then you are worse than the worst.  It grips you like some kinds of sinning;  It twists you from foe to a Iriend;  It seems it's been since the beginning;  It seems it will be to the end.  I 've stood in some mighty-mouthed hollow  That's plumb-full of hush to the brim;  I 've watched the big, husky sun wallow  In crimson and gold, and grow dim,  Till the moon set the pearly peaks gleaming,  And the stars tumbled out, neck and crop;  And I 've thought that I surely was dreaming,  With the peace o' the world piled on top.  The summer���no sweeter was ever;  The sunshiny woods all athrill;  The grayling aleap in the river,  The bighorn asleep on the hill.  The strong life that never knows harness;  The wilds where the caribou call;  The freshness, the freedom, thefarness���  0 God! how I'm stuck on it all.  The winter! the brightness that blinds you,  The white land locked tight as a drum,  The cold fear that follows and finds you,  The silence that bludgeons you dumb.  The snows that are older than history,  The woods where the weird shadows slant;  The stillness, the moonlight, the mystery,  1 've bade 'em good-by���but I can 7.  There's a land where the mountains are nameless,  And the rivers all run God knows where;  There are lives that are erring and aimless,  And deaths that just hang by a hair;  There are hardships that nobody reckons;  There are valleys unpeopled and still;  There's a land���oh, it beckons and beckons,  And I want to go back���and I will.  They're making my money diminish;  I 'm sick ot the taste of champagne.  Thank God! when I 'm skinned to a finish  I 'IIpike to the Yukon again.  I 'II tight���and you bet it's no sham-tight;  It's hell!���but I 've been there before;  And it's better than this by a damsite���  So me lor the Yukon once more.  There's gold, and it's haunting and haunting  It's luring me on as of old;  Yet it isn 7 the gold that I 'm wanting  So much as lust finding the gold.  It's the great, big, broad land 'way up  It's the forests where silence has lease;  It's the beauty that thrills me with wonder,  It's the stillness that fills me with peace.  Slings & Arrows  George Matthews  You're not going to believe  this but when 1 was young and  naive, I thought that sports  were a metaphor for life.  Over the years however I've  watched hundreds of hours of  baseball and thousands of  hours of football and with all  that first-hand experience  I've realized that I was  wrong. Sports are not a metaphor for life, they are life  itself. Everything else is  filler, half-time entertainment and commercial breaks.  The true spiritual significance  of sports was revealed to me  again a couple of weeks ago  when I met a truly memorable  sports personality at a Giants-  Mets game in Candlestick  Park ��� but more about him  later.  Yes, sports has it all. After  a week of the mundane trivialities of inflation, unemployment, mortgages, panelling  the rec-room and paying bills,  the weekend comes alive with  the really important things:  a pinch-hit double in the  ninth with two out and runners  at first and second; stunting  linebackers, red dogging,  the nickel defense, double  coverage, splitting the seam,  passing under the coverage,  the safety blitz. That's where  the cut and thrust of the  real world is.  Only real life could have  provided a more dramatic  week in the American League  east. As I'm sure each and  every one of you knows,' the  New York Yankees were  7'/i games out of first place  just two weeks ago. Thc  crowds were sullen and  dwindling in thc old ballpark in the Bronx. Billy  Martin had been fired, Reggie  Jackson was unhappy, Thur-  mon Manson was in a slump  and the Catfish had a sore  arm. Scuttlebut in the bleachers was that maybe this year  the Bronx Bombers wouldn't  make their September surge.  Last Wednesday, the Yanks  were four games out of first  place and opening a four game  series against the Red Sox  in Fenway Park. Boston was  in first place, every sports  writer in the country was calling the Red Sox the best team  in the Majors. If the Yankees  lose four they're eight games  back. If they win four they're  in first place. Every game a  two pointer. This morning,  the dust of the first three  games having settled, the  pin stripers are a game out of  first. Wednesday they beat  the Sox 15���3, Thursday they  clobber the Bostonians 13���2,  Saturday the heroes from the  Continued on page three LETTERS  Are Pender people low-rated?  Coast News, September 12,1978  Editor:  One is hard put to rationalize the concern that is being  expressed over the vandalism  of one hundred kilos of  Tordon 10-K at Clowholm  Falls.  What is the commotion all  about? On the same day,  almost, that Visigoths purportedly dumped this comparative handful of pellets  into the foot of a lake twenty  miles in length and very  deep ��� a lake that flows into  the waters of the Pacific  Ocean ��� pellets of that same  composition were, and arc,  being sprayed purposefully  over the water supplies of thc  Pender Harbour area. Arc  the drinking water sources of  Pender then more voluminous  than those into which the  herbicide nuggets were  dropped at Clowholm? Will  Hydro fling less than two  saekfuls of these little bombs  along the Pender Harbour  area right-of-way? Are we  to bc told tic quantity of  Tordon 10-K they intend to  shower on thc people of  Pender    Harbour? And,  after Pender, where next?  Some quite fascinating  comments have already come  out of this incident. We  learn, for instance, that  fisheries officers are on the  lookout for dead trout and  salmon. Wc find that Tordon  10-K pellets are manufactured  under thc warning: "Do not  allow the material to contaminate water used for irrigation, drinking, or other  domestic use." And we discover that residents ��� and  even loggers ��� around  Clowholm have been warned  against use of water from  their customary supplies.  So ��� it is expected that  fish may be killed, even in a  limitless supply of water.  Neither potato plants nor  goats should be allowed to  use water contaminated by  Tordon 10-K. Human beings  at Clowholm have been  cautioned against the use of  lake water. Good.  Now, how about the citizens  of Pender Harbour? Where  do they rate on a scale of  values? Obviously below  a potato plant, a fish, a goat,  No Charges Yet  Sir:  Up to thc time of writing,  no charges have been laid by  the R.C.M.P. in the case of  the dumping of Tordon 10-K  pellets into Clowholm Lake  over the weekend of September 2���3. This is what we  have been told and we have  no reason to think otherwise.  If ever there was a travesty of justice, here is a  gleaming example of the law  being apparently bent to  accomodate a large corporation or business concern, in  this case B.C. Hydro. If anyone else had been so negligent  in storing such a toxic substance as this in conditions  easily accessible to children,  you can almost guarantee that  the book would have been  thrown at them. Instead we  are given to understand that  B.C.Hydro will get off scot-  free.  Just to fill in people on the  hazards of this highly toxic  chemical here is an extract  from the manufacturers  cautions to be observed when  dealing with Tordon 10-K.  1. Keep out of reach of  children. May cause irritation  after handling.  2. Do not contaminate any  body of water.  3. Combustible. Keep away  from heat and open flame.  4. Keep container closed  when not in use.  Special instructions:  Do not treat areas intended  to be used for cultivated  (susceptible) crops or other  desirable plants as it usually  takes up to five years for  Picloram to be deactivated by  the soil.  And there is more, much  more, but this should be  enough to convince readers  of the hazards of this material  that B.C.Hydro treats with  such carelessness. Irresponsibility is the word to  describe Hydro's attitude  but what can one really  expect from such an arrogant  so-called public servant?  It makes one wonder why,  after all these years of extolling the virtues of 2,4,5-T  and 2,4-D which B.C.Hydro  has been using on the Right-  of-Way   up   til   now,   they  should   switch    to    another  product.  Could it bc that thc powers  that be are listening to what  the peasants have been saying  for years? I doubt it but it's  nice to speculate on.  John Hind-Smith,  Gibsons, B.C.  Objection  Editor:  The two weeks Mr. and  Mrs. Reynold had for producing the letter from the Ferry  Corporation, which they claim  they have received, have  passed in silence ��� I don't  think anybody thought there  was such a letter.  What, really, did Mrs.  Reynold think she could  prove by making such a  stupid statement? The Island  Trust feels it is about time  these people send an apology  to the persons involved, including the Ferry Corporation.  Working for the Government,  1 feel Mr. Reynold should have  retracted his wife's statement.  I am sure hc was aware she  was not telling the truth.  May I state, in the two  weeks' waiting time, my mail  lock has been tampered with  and my garden gate damaged.  Whoever is responsible in  grinding personal grievances,  in destroying private property,  should be careful. Some Gambier Harbour residents are  very fed up with childish  behavior, like beating people  up and making the lives of  our old folks miserable.  I have people telling mc  they never want to go to  another association meeting  again. I think this is very  wrong. It is up to the members to stand up against  people who just come to  meetings to air their hatred.  I am living on Gambier and I  am quite determined to stay  and believe mc I shall protect  my property. Many of the residents try to help to ease thc  burden of the old people and  don't make their lives unbearable.  M.Dombrowski,  H.Negropontc,  Island Trust  or a resident of Clowholm,  who in any case can use  unpolluted stream water.  If the dumping of two  hundred pounds of Tordon  10-K into Clowholm Lake  constitutes vandalism,  sufficiently serious to bring  about warnings to water users  there, how should we classify  the defoliation of a four  hundred foot corridor through  the heart of Pender Harbour,  with the occupants given no  more indication of thc magnitude of the offense than  were the peasants of Vietnam  during the I960's?  Of course there is no  proof that all of the lost  pellets were dumped. What's  to say that they don't pop up,  at our schools, through a  juvenile goodies ring, to  compete with Smartics and  other succulents? After all,  despite container warnings,  isn't Hydro saying that the  stuff is perfectly safe for  human consumption, to  Pender Harbourites, at  least?  L.R.Peterson  Gibsons, B.C.  Thank You  Editor:  The Pender Harbour Health  Clinic Auxiliary wishes to  thank all the crafts people  for displaying their wares  at our second annual show  held Saturday, August 26  at Madeira Park.

Slings and Arrows (cont'd)  Bronx bounce the Redmen  7���0. Three games, three  wins. They outscore Boston  35���5 in Fenway Park.  You would think I would be  amazed at this turn of events  but I've been watching the  September Yankees for thirty  years. I was born the same  year as Joe Dimaggio hit  safely in fifty-six games in a  row and they were magic then.  They've been doing it since  before Babe Ruth was a real  babe.  There is protective spirit,  a guardian angel, a divine  presence in the Yankee dugout *- just as there is an  intervening higher power in  all of sports. This was confirmed for me a couple of  weeks ago in the stands at  Candlestick Park when I  met that personality referred  to earlier.  Hold it right there. It's  game time in Fenway Park.  The Yankees and the Red  Sox in the biggest game of  the year. I've got to find out  if the Yanks can sweep the  series. American Armed  Forces radio broadcasts the  game and it starts in five  minutes. My lesson in  divine intervention and sports  will have to wait till next  week.  .  Open Letter  Editor:  Re: Open Letter of the  Taxpayers  Is the recent proposal for  the Recreation Referendum  what we really want? Should  we be working on the concept  of a total regional recreation  plan or should we be thinking  of the needs of the individual  areas financed on a specified  area basis?  The recreation package as  proposed would appear to  be very costly to the taxpayers and does not seem to  meet our needs. I urge you  all to attend the meetings,  ask questions and then  consider this proposal serious-  iy-  Verda D.Schneider,  Gibsons, B.C.  Area E  As you will see from the  advertisement under 'Coming  Events' the first general meeting of the fall season will  take place on Tuesdav. September 12, 1978. at 8:00 p.m.  at the Cedargrove Elementary  School, Chaster Road. The  meeting days have been  changed to the second Tuesday of every month to give  our Regional director and his  alternate a better chance to  attend these meetings and  keep the lines of communication to the Regional District  open. All residents are  cordially invited to attend and  to participate fully in the  discussion of all problems  affecting them. Upcoming  important subjects will be the  'Gibsons Vicinity Plan', the  'recreation referendum',  'B.C.Hydro spraying' and  'powerline routing through  the Sunshine Coast', to name  only a few. They all will  affect our lives for many  years to come. It is, therefore, of utmost importance  that your views on these  matters will be made known  to the responsible authorities.  This can only be achieved,  however, if you attend the  meetings and speak up.   _i^. _ i  CLASSIFIED NOTE  Drop off your Coast News  Classifieds at Campbell's  Family Shoes ft Leather  Goods In down-town Sechelt.

We crouch between the  runners of the donkey-sled.  Corky's patronizing manner  has momentarily vanished.  Common fear has forged a  brief alliance between us.  "Goddamn!" he mutters.  "Hope those bastards drop  before they hit the sticks!"  The runaway turn hisses  out over the water. Seconds  later, the carriage hits the  rubber tires, threaded on the  skyline In front of the jack to  cushion just such an impact.  Even with these to soften the  shock, the rail shakes and the  A-sticks groan ominously.  The jolt triggers the release-  mechanism in thc carriage and  the logs plunge into the bark-  strewn bull-pen with a thwacking explosion of spray.  "Sonofabitch. eh!" says  Corky as we emerge from  cover. Hc wipes his greasy  hands on a piece of rag and  rolls a cigarette.  I glance up the hill. The  haulback-linc has apparently  broken somewhere close to  thc top and both wild ends  have run halfway down thc  mountain. I can hear Ben  LeClair, the hooktender,  cursing with fervour. The  crew is already setting-out  w ith the straw-line.  Thc resultant repair work  involves bringing the broken  ends of the haulback together  and long-splicing them into a  single cable again. It eats up  a couple of grumbling hours.  The rest of the day passes  uneventfully. The wood that  comes down is mostly cedar  and relatively easy to unhook  since it floats well. I begin to  convince myself that I'm  making progress.  I haven't, to this point, been  able to figure out who's running what at Carrington's.  That night. Chris helps mc  sort it out: "Ben thc hooker  and old Harry's son, Ralph,  arc in partnership. Harry  used   to   run   it   before   hc  Pages  from a Life-Log  Peter Trower  retired. Ralph's away right  now. He goes away quite a  bit. Leaves big Ben with all  the work and responsibility.  Beit's not too happy about it.  He don't say much but you  can tell."  "How did they ever get  together."  "They're both old families  around this area. Guess  they've known each other  most of Iheir lives. Ben's a  pretty good guy ��� don't  let his shouting and hollering faze you ��� but Ralph's  another story. Figure hc could  gct damn mean if he wauled  lo."  Next day. thc job begins to  go badly again. There arc  many peckcrpoles ��� skinny  sinkers that are a hassle and  a half to unchokc. I curse,  fumble and tall in twice  before ten o'clock. Around  eleven, they begin doing some  sort of bullcooking up above  and there is a merciful lull  in the logging. I'm sitting on  the edge of the raft in my  damp gear, gazing idly up the  inlet when something enormous breaks water about  three-hundred feet away.  I've seen killer-whales before  but they were minnows in  comparison with this monster.  It's a full-Hedged leviathan  right out of Moby Dick, a  living gunboat of grey,  glistening skin and it's coming  i ght for thc raft as though it  i lans to ram us. I watch ils  progress in awestruck fascination. Even cynical Corky  slops his monkey-wrenching  and stands gazing open-  mouthed.  About thirty feet away when  collision seems inevitable,  I lie great beast suddenly  dives and goes clear under  the raft. It stays submerged  for almost two minutes, then  surfaces again on the other  side, a long distance off.  Shaking an enormous tail as  though in farewell, it dives  again and disappears into thc  cold fathoms of thc Sound.  A starting-whistle jars mc  back to the onerous matters  al hand.  The job continues to go  badly. The harder 1 try. thc  worse il seems to get. I  simply can'l seem to gel the  knack of unhooking sniall  logs in the waler, My confidence deteriorates, I know  damn well thai I'm holding up  production by my Inept  performance. A couple of  times, struggling wilh a  particularly thorny turn. 1  can hear Hen's bullroar of a  voice: "Come on, for Chris-  sake! Let's have that jewelry  back today!''  That evening, he calls me  aside after supper. "Guess  you ain't done too much  chasing before, eh?"  I confess to the obvious,  convinced thai I'm about to  gel the axe.  "Well, I'll tell you what.  I'd give you a bit longer to  break in but we got to gct  another boom out before thc  snow flies. I'm going to have  to put you blowing whistles,  1 guess." Oddly, his manner  seems almost apologetic.  Hc turns and heads for his  quarters.  Several confused emotions  run through mc. I'm relieved  at not being fired; thankful  that I won't have to chase  anymore and humiliated over  thc demotion. I wonder if 1  should quit to save face.  "Hell, no," says Chris when  I tell him. "Hang in there.  This is a pretty fair outfit  and you'd just have to hire-  out again anyhow. They're  not likely to cut your wages.  You'll be getting the same  money for sitting on a  stump."  I allow that he's probably  right. The embarrassment of  it fades in a couple of days  "A Hunting - You     V  Shall     / j  Go"   J  ilFGoodrich  ilFGoodrich  IlFGoodrich  We have many  tires for light truck  and RV's on special, especially  for you hunters, to help you  get there and back again.

Now 1 toil up the steep  incline each morning with the  rest of thc crew. They're  yarding a relatively flat ledge  at thc top of the formidable  hill with a second small  donkey. A kid called Hank  Cassidy works the swing-  tree, unhooking the logs as  they come in and hooking  them up again to'the Tyler-  line rigging. He's amazingly  fast. The other engineer is  a short, stocky Ukrainian  named Paul Kosak, a considerably more pleasant man  than thc scornful Corky  Grist. It's early fall and  mostly sunny with the leaves  of the alders just starting to  darken. Chris is pulling-  rigging with a gawky, bespectacled college-student by the  name of Claude Tate on the  chokers. After the travails  of thc bull-pen, blowing-  whistles seems an exceedingly soft touch. I click the  wooden bug whenever Chris  or Ben holler and sing songs to  myself in the warm September  breeze.  The sedentary nature of  the job gives mc a lot more  time to think and observe.  Ben LeClair is very much thc  star of thc show. He's a  huge man, at least six-three  in his caulks, yet he has a  curiously gentle manner most  of thc time and never abuses  the crew. He's certainly prone  to rages but always directs  his anger at inanimate  objects or God. "You gray-  bearded old sonofabitch!"  he howls blasphemously,  shaking a gloved fist of ultimate frustration at the deaf  sky. His tantrums are almost  mythic in their intensity.  When he really gets going.  I half-expect a bolt of angry  lightning to blast him clear  off the hill. On one occasion,  hc actually gets down and  bites a hung-up choker-  cable. Chris swears he  leaves teeth-marks in thc  steel.  There is no more or less to  IllL CL.AYBURGH does nol suspect that there is another woman in her  lusband's lite in 20th Century-Fox's "AN UNMARRIED WOMAN"  Twilight Theatre  A study of the effects of a  broken marriage and a rare  comedy from director Sam  I'eckinpah form the bill of  entertainment fare at the  Twilight Theatre in thc  upcoming week.  In thc resurgence of films  with strong parts for women,  none have offered a role for an  actress with more range and  depth than the part of Erica in  An Unmarried Woman.  Cast in the part of thc very  modern young woman set  adrift by the end of a seemingly perfect marriage, Jill  Claybttrgh is in every scene  do at Carrington's than at  any other small, isolated  camp. The place is made up  of three, lashed-togethcr  rafts. The large, central  lloa( carries the bulk of thc  camp-buildings: cookhouse,  bunkhouses, washrooms and  workshops. At either end are  two houses on separate floats.  The two elder Carringtons  and Emily occupy a neat  bungalow with an amazing  floating garden in thc back  "yard". Ralph and Ben,  both recently divorced, share  a scruffy. "odd-couple"  cottage at the opposite end.  Apart from human-beings, the  rafts are inhabited by a  morose Irish-setter, belonging  to old Harry; four piebald  cats to keep thc rats at bay and  a lone rabbit with delusions of  cathood who scuttled aboul  with litem like a confused  country cousin.  Wc arc working six days  a week and as thc weeks  lick by, the crew, several of  whom have been there for  months, begin to grow edgy  and restless. There is much  complaining and arguing over  trivial matters. An air of  obscure tension begins to  pervade thc camp. LeClair  is quick to spot the intangible  discontent and knows the  cure for it. "By God!" hc  says, one drizzling Friday  in early October. "I figure  we've earned ourselves a  break, boys. Think I'll shut  her down for a few days.  We'll take a run to Alert  Bay. Check out the hooch  and the Klootchcs. Whattaya  say'.'"  To be continued  in the film. As an actress,  Clayburgh can now bc considered on thc verge of  real stardom if her rave  reviews here are any indication of drawing power.  In fact all the women's  roles in An Unmarried Woman  combine intelligent writing  and intelligent performing.  Clayburgh's small circle of  intimate friends are all interesting characters with  problems and minds of their  own. Alan Bates and Michael  Murphy are the main men in  the film which will be shown at  the local cinema Wednesday  through Saturday, September  13-16. Patrons should note  that An Unmarried Woman  will be shown at 9:00 p.m.  on Saturday, September 16.  Peckinpah's comedy is  called Convoy and, while  riotous action with comedy are  not what the director has been  noted for heretofore, a strong  cast headed by Kris Kristof-  fcrson, Ali McGraw, firnest  Borgnine and Burt Young  combine to make this a most  entertaining film.  Convoy's main emphasis  is on the comedy and while  many get battered during thc  course of its tumultuous  action, few are badly hurt  and none are killed. The film  has some dramatic elements  but these are overshadowed  by the wild doings of the  smokeys (nasty cops) and the  mostly noble truckers.  Convoy will have a 7:00  p.m. showing on Saturday  September 16 and thereafter will be screened at the  regular hour of 8:00 p.m.  Sunday through Tuesday,  September 17-19.  Music  Martial music lovers will  bc pleased to learn that lessons in playing the Highland  Bagpipes and thc accompanying snare drums will be given  this fall at Elphinstone Secondary School on Tuesday  nights from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m.,  starting October 3. The cost  of thc course will be $40.00  for piping students and  $30.00 for drumming students. The course is twenty-  five hours long.

Astrologically. however, it  is a very significant happening. The Full Moon falls in  Pisces, the sign which 'rules'  thc sea, prisons, hospitals and  asylums. Consequently,  news headlines will probably  focus on these institutions.  Hospital and police departments would bc wise to  increase their staff members  during this highly emotional  and somewhat chaotic weekend.  ARIES (Murch21-April 19)  Accent is on wanting to  bc alone, doing things in  private and taking the time  to analyze past mistakes.  You may be temporarily  linked to hospitals, prisons.  large institutions or secret  places. Thc sick, tired or  lonely genuinely need your  helping hand. Don't bc  afraid to shed a few tears.  TAURUS (April 20-May 20)  Friends and acquaintances  may be thc source of frustrations and confusion.  Nevertheless, it's time to  cooperate with others and  direct energy into group  projects or local organizations. Personal hopes and  wishes may now reflect  dreamy or impractical goals.  GEMINI (May 21-June 21)  Spotlight is on your reputation, honour and credibility.  Accent is on raising or lowering your status in the eyes of  the public, so be prepared to  defend your present position  or belief's. Any underhanded  schemes may be exposed for  all to see and judge. Honesty  is the best policy.  CANCER (June 22-July 22)  You'll probably be feeling  more idealistic, religious or  philosophical as the week  closes. The mind then turns  to higher learning, basic-  training and skill development courses. Long distance  communications bring sad  but inevitable news regarding  old friends far awav.  LEO (July 23-Aug.22)  Attention is focused on  close associate's financial  affairs which arc subject to  temporary muddles and confusion. Advice is to forget  any emotional involvement  and tackle possible solutions  objectively. Meanwhile, your  own long-term investments,  insurance or savings should  be guarded against deceit or  treachery.  VIRGO (Aug.23-Sept.22)  Mercury, now in your sign  for two weeks, enhances your  innate ability to sift and ana  who have ignored warning  signs, aches or pains should  seek medical reassurances  without further delay. Attempting to solve problems  on thc work-scene may bc  hindered by over-emotional  and super-sensitive co-workers who have become too  proud to adapt.  SCORPIO (Oct.24-Nov.22)  Venus in your sign for the  next FOUR MONTHS promises more than a fair share of  romantic entanglements for  the remainder of this year.  You'll feel a strong urge to  make major changes in personal appearance and dress  habits. As you create new  image, seek expert advice  when choosing new clothes  and hairstyles. This weekend's social life is a taste of  . hat lies ahead.  SAGITTARIUS (Nov.23-  Dcc.211  Weekend domestic routines are upset by emotional  upheavals and misunderstandings. It's time to review  priorities of all family members and establish common  agreements, Sulking in a  room behind a slammed door  solves nothing. Rental or  real estate documents should  be put aside until next week.  CAPRICORN (Dec.22-Jan.19)  Tears and sadness are  linked to all forms of short  distance communications.  Phone calls, correspondence  and local visits find other  people in highly sensitive  moods. Advice is to postpone  contacts till next week and  stay at home away from the  uproars. If possible, avoid  brothers, sisters and neighbours who'll be difficult to  understand.  AQUARIUS (Jan.20-Feb.18)  Accent is on confusing  financial affairs. Guard  money and possessions well.  Refuse to listen to 'hard-  luck' stories or prepare to  kiss goodbye cash or equipment lent out this weekend.  Avoid buying major purchases. Items bought now are  subject to theft, loss or  breakdown. You     were  warned.  PISCES (Feb. 19-Mar.20)  Full Moon in your sign  accents your wonderful  sensitivity and sympathy.

In elementary school, while  my friends devoured thc  seemingly endless series of  "Hardy Boys" adventures, I  surreptitiously read and reread the Winston School  Dictionary, which made it  possible for me to form an  early acquaintance with thc  world's greatest detective,  the famous Sherlock Holmes.  1 was captivated by Holmes'  characteristic eccentricities  and uncanny powers of observation and deduction, but,  I confess, thc plots of the  stories, particularly thc  longer ones, failed to interest  me very much. (A recent  re-read   of  some  of  Conan  Doyle's stories confirmed my  first impression ��� the shorter  stories are quite good but  some of the longer ones like,  "A Study in Scarlet" are  clumsily plotted and lack one  of the major attractions of  modern mystery writing:  that of trying to second guess  the detective from clues  woven into the plot but apparent only to thc perceptive  reader.) Even now my sense  of curiosity is unmoved by  book-length mysteries; I  don't think I've ever finished  one of Agatha Christie's  numerous novels, even though  most of them could bc read  in an evening and friends of  mine are devoted fans of that  prolific lady.  Some years ago, however, I  acquired a small volume of  detective mysteries that I've  been able to re-read every so  often with undiminished curiosity and enjoyment. I found  it originally in a box in the  basement, earmarked for  eventual incineration. The  box contained books and  pamphlets that had belonged  to my recently deceased  grandfather; almost all of  them propounding the dogma  of various to say the least  somewhat unorthodox religious sects. It was a rainy  Sunday afternoon and I was  desperate for something to  read, but I had something  a little less eclectic in mind.  As I rummaged hopefully  toward thc bottom of the box,  a small paperback bobbed to  thc surface like the proverbial  life-preserver tatooed with the  name of the ship. I grabbed it  and sat on the box to take  my bearings; "Again the  Ringer" the cover announced,  Members of the cast of the lively musical, Liquid Gold, are pictured on a suitable  wharf. The show is set on the Sunshine Coast and can be seen locally September 20  Live rum-running musical  coming to Sunshine Coast  The Kinsmen Club of Gibsons will sponsor a visit to  the Sunshine Coast of the  Tamahnous Theatre Company  with their highly successful  musical production Liquid  Gold which ran in Vancouver  in April and was reviewed at  that time in the Coast News.  Liquid Gold is set on the Sunshine Coast in an imaginary  settlement called Envcrs  Inlet.  The fast moving, entertaining and topical production  is set in the I920's and is  concerned with fisherfolk,  rum-running, and the coming  of electricity to thc unspoiled  coast line. Thc production is  performed in the burlesque-  style of thc 1920's.  The publicity material for  the musical asks rhetorically:  "Will Mort Wheeler succeed  in addicting the gentle fisherfolk of Envers Inlet to radios,  'refrigerators, and all the inconveniences that power can  provide? Or will the battle  ���be   won   by  widow   Sophie  ��� McCafferty,   a   fisherwoman  who sees through Mort's  plan to chain them to a life  of credit?"  It all depends on Moon  Morgan, thc bold adventurer  whose Texada Island distillery provides Wheeler with  the liquor which is thc  cornerstone of his little empire. Where does Morgan's  allegiance really lie ��� with  the fisherfolk who share his  love of the open sea or with  the mighty dollar?  The Coast News review of  the performance said in part:  "It's a good strong script  full of topical relevance, controversial matter, and believable portrayals of West Coast  people. It is a musical and  both in choral work and solos  it is strong with good songs  well sung. It is funny, very  funny sometimes. It is poignant and moving at times and  always it addresses itself to  the central questions of  human values and social  responsibilities."  Liquid Gold will be shown  locally on Wednesday,  September 20 at Elphinstone  Secondary School. It is well  worth seeing for its own sake  but thc fact that it is set on  our very own Sunshine Coast  should make it all the more  attractive for local residents.  r  i  i  OVER THE HILL HOCKEY CLUB  GENERAL MEETING  THURSDAY SEPTEMBER 141978 8:00 PM  AT THE ARENA  Election of Board Registration  Anyone who wishes to join should be  _ present.  I Age Limit: 35 yrs or older  1  I  COMMERCIAL-RESIDENTIAL  ��� DESIGN ��� NEW & REWIRING ��� POWERLINES  CLASS "A" CONTRACTOR  TOM MORRISON    QQ#     Q������  B0B LAMBERT  P.O. Box 1160 DOO'OIjI Gibsons  by Edgar Wallace. From  habitual rambles in bookstores 1 vaguely recognized  Wallace as a writer whose  name I'd seen standing on  end as I glanced over the  mystery section. Beneath the  title and author's name the  words "Judge, Jury and  Executioner!" were emblazoned across an illustration of  a wig-stand which displayed  the powdered wig of a British  judge and a domino mask  beside a dangling noose  against a red curtain background. It looked pretty  melodramatic and of course it  was, but I stayed down there  for a couple of hours, reading  a dozen of the seventeen  very short stories, interrupted  occasionally by the need to  discourage fist-sized spiders  from intruding on my solitude.  The stories are a bit dated;  the edition I found is a 1962  Pan Books reprint of the  original 1929 edition, and  though the main character,  Henry Arthur Milton, is a  kind of vigilante, operating  outside the law, he bears no  resemblance at all to Charles  Bronson in "Death Wish".  Milton has no grudge against  any particular type of criminal; in fact he seems to be  motivated by no personal  sense of vendetta whatever. He will track down a  smalltime counterfeiter of  half-crown coins simply  because his activities ultimately cheat the shopkeepers and wage-earners of the  rewards of their labours.  His next "case" may be that  of a cold-blooded killer who  has cleverly eluded the  police but failed to reckon  on the independent "Ringer".  Taking his name from the  "Ringer of Changes" Milton's  most effective weapons are  his personal anonymity (very  few people have ever seen  his exposed face and lived to  tell the tale), his genius for  disguise, and his consequent  ability to penetrate the British  underworld, not to mention  Scotland Yard, with impunity.  The Ringer dispenses  "justice" in proportion to  the nature and severity of  the crime. In the case of the  counterfeiter, he merely  tracks down the criminal  and provides the police with  anonymous but precise  information concerning the  miscreant's operation and  whereabouts. With others his  methods are less gentle.  A hair-dresser who, with the  diabolical assistance of his  dear sweet old mother, takes  advantage of the naivete  of young ladies newly arrived  in London to draw them into  a life of prostitution, is  kidnapped, thanks to the  Ringer, into the sandswept  Harem of an Arab Sheik  where he is made "a servant  of women, one such as they  may beat with their slippers".  A pompous tycoon, who  seduces his young housekeeper and rejects all responsibility for her and her resultant  child, is publicly humiliated  and coerced into paying for  their support. A vicious bank  robber and murderer, who  makes the fatal mistake of  identifying himself with thc  I"   Ringer for notoriety, is found  dangling from a tree on his  estate with a ten pound note  and thc following cryptic  note pinned to his sleeve:  "Please Give the Banknote  to the Public Hangman and  offer him my apologies for  this invasion of his provinc.''  The Ringer's messages to  his intended victims range  from thc curt, "find another  occupation, I shall not warn  you again," to a succinct  chronicle of the sins of a  young rake who caused the  suicide of a girl, which ends,  "As you are a man of considerable property and may  wish to have time to make  arrangements as to its disposal 1 will give you a little  grace. At the end of a reasonable period I shall come to  London and kill you." They  arc always typed on the same  battered typewriter with distinctively misaligned keys,  or scribbled in a hand instantly recognizable to  Superintendent Bliss of thc  Yard. Bliss is an interesting  character in his own right; a  clandestine poet barely able  to conceal his ambivalence  on thc subject of capturing the  notorious Ringer, a subject  on which his smug and inept  subordinate, Inspector  Mander, speculates inexhaustibly. Mander is as much the  victim of his own grandiose  theories as the Ringer's  brilliant deceptions, as  Bliss reminds him, taking a  backhand swipe at Sherlock  Holmes: "Instead of being  your natural self and establishing contact with the  normal criminal mind, you  waste the time you should  devote to sleeping in working  out theories based, as far as  I can gather, upon those sensational detective novels  which were so popular twenty  years ago. I have a feeling  that you are writing a monograph on cigar ash."  Throughout thc book,  Wallace's writing is lively  fast-paced and full of dry  understated wit. Hc avoids  the graphic violence so  fashionable in recent crime  novels. When the Ringer  invites one of his deserving  victims for a walk in the  garden, his next descriptive  passage concerns the forget-  me-nots planted in the freshly  turned earth. The stories are  full of clues that challenge  the reader to try to spot the  Ringer, but they also abound  with red herrings and I'm  not ashamed to say my record  of deduction was no better  than that of the luckless  inspector Mander.  In spite of the charm and  cleverness of Wallace, his  writing and the sympathetic  character of the Ringer himself, the book should in no  way be taken as an encouragement to would-be Robin  Hoods or vigilantes. After  4,000 years of development,  the law is still a far sight from  perfect instrument, but it's  the most important tool we  have, more important than  any technology, to preserve  the civilization of man. It  makes it possible for writers  to scribble great entertaining  yarns like Again the Ringer,  for us to read them.

In other words, I present the  meal as though we had  company. I am just about to  give up. My old man, young  as hc is, has a few drinks  before dinner, goes to sleep  and refuses to come to dinner,  or he tromps through the food  like a bull moose, ignoring  vegetables and salad. 1  feel defeated on the score  of having him eat a balanced  meal, or caring about the  niceties of house and home.

It was also decided to have  screenings every two weeks  rather than every week as  was the case in the past.  This suggestion was made  by Dcidre and Hugh Munro  who wrote to me in care of  this newspaper, and the executive agreed that showings  less frequently than in the  past may indeed draw a more  consistent following.

Faucet  Dear Faucet:  Many people deserve to  be turned off, but few can  disentangle themselves.  There is such a thing as  transferring your affections ���  if there is an alternative you  can forget faster. It is what  we put our attention on that  involves us. There will be  pangs, and when the relationship is well established it is  like recovering from an  illness, it takes time and  determination. It is possible,  sure, no one likes to be a  figure of sympathy, pride  helps spur you on to other  things and people.  Dear Ann:  You said it was better to  raise an elephant to serve  you, than a tiger, as it may  eat you. Well we've certainly  done that with Hydro ��� it will  take another party in power  to control this jaugernaut.

Why don't they run it  through British Properties ���  it is not quite as pretty.  Bummed Out!  Dear Bummed Out:  Me too. I can't believe it  really. The people are supposed to rule this society,  but obviously their desires  are not considered. The  spoilers tramp on, we are run  by a bunch of greedy business  men.

If you would like to be involved, please let me know.  Thc first series commences  on Friday, September 22  with Woody Allen's Bananas  which provides an opportunity  for those who enjoyed Annie  Hall (1977) to enjoy this  earlier (1971) film which  Jay Cocks described (Time,  May 17, 1971) as "eighty  some-very-odd minutes of  certified Allen hilarity".  This film, and one or two  others which thc Film Society  will bc screening, played in  the Twilight Theatre's regular  programme when first  released. The films being  rerun are offered for the  benefit of those who missed  them when first shown and  for others who would like the  opportunity to see them again.  1 would hope that most of  the programmes are worth at  least two viewings.  Following Bananas, there  will be a series of Robert  Altman's films commencing  two weeks later on Friday,  October 6 with California  Split (1974) featuring George  Segal, Elliott Gould, Ann  Prentiss and Gwen Welles.  This will be followed on Friday, October 20 with Buffalo  Bill and the Indians, or  Sitting Bull's History Lesson  (1976) which features Paul  Newman, Joel Gray, Burt  Lancaster and Geraldine  Chaplin. 1 hope to conclude  what will be an Altman  retrospective on Friday,  November 3 with his most  recent film (1977) Three  Women, but this has not yet  been finalized. Should it  not be possible to screen  that film, the series will conclude with one of his earlier  films, either The Long Goodbye or Thieves Like Us.  Details of the last film in the  first series as well as projections for the second series  will appear in next week's  Coast News, and this column  will continue to be exclusive  to our community-owned  newspaper.  This opportunity to see  three films of Robert Altman  in fairly close juxtaposition  should not be missed. Alt-  man has become a cult director, but he himself regards a  cult as: "just enough people  to make a majority or finance  a film." He no longer has to  care that some people do not  like the experimental  approaches toward his topics  which he has indulged since  his great success with  M*A*S*H. "I don't think  my films are difficult," he  says, "I'm told they are".  Robert Altman was born in  1926 in Kansas City. After  service in the Second World  War,  Altman found himself  writing, producing, directing,  photographing and dressing  the sets for industrial films  with Kansas City's Calvin  Company. He even sold the  films himself. During his  eight years with Calvin, Alt-  man made forays into Hollywood and directed The Delinquents there in the mid-  fifties. In 1957 he collaborated with George W.George  to make thc highly successful James Dean Story. This  led to six full years working in  television during which hc  directed for Hitchcock and had  many assignments with Kraft  Theatre. He directed three-  films in Hollywood in the  sixties (including Countdown,  1968) but it was M*A*S*H  with Elliott Gould and Donald  Sutherland, in 1970 which  made his fame and fortune.  He has been busy and  successful ever since although  he has not always been successful in making his films as  commercial as he might wish.  In eight years, he has made  twelve films. He is engaged  at present on a film called  A wedding, but you may bc  very sure that an Altman wedding is no ordinary nuptial.

Hi, Ian, here's a true  fish story ��� really!  I was recently fishing in  Welcome Pass with a friend,  using a very special, new type  of herring dodger with a  Kripplc-"K" lure. It was  very special because it had  been a birthday gift from a  very close friend. AND, it  was also catching fish!  Wc were staying close to  the rock face of the shoreline to avoid the heavy seas  that were breaking outside  the Pass, and the fish must  have bei m doing the same for  we were catching. We had  landed two, lost iwo and I  was in the process of trying to  A little while later in the Coast News Office the three men begin to warm up and  find something to smile about.  land a third.  After a long struggle with  a beauty, he was turning on  his side beside the boat and  my partner was ready to net  him. But a last second  lunge and collision with thc  rim of the net broke the  line ��� away hc went with  my prized dodger, Kripple-  "K" and all.  Dejection turned to hope  when hc began jumping a  few yards away in his efforts  to rid himself of my precious  outfit. With a yell and a  burst of speed, the long  handled net at the ready, wc  took off in hot pursuit. After  several sharp turns which  almost sent me swimming,  he would dive at the sight of  the boat and reappear somewhere else. We "might as  well be chasin' after moonbeams", as the Irishman  said, as to try and catch  that salmon, so turning our  backs to his enticements, I  mounted another outfit,  strung it out behind, and  went back tofishin'.  Watching this absurd  performance was another  fisherman ��� thc feathered  kind. He must have been a  bachelor bald-headed eagle,  for hc was alone. There was  no sign of his mate in the  dry fir hc roosted in, nor in  surrounding trees. In any  case, if an eagle can smirk,  I'm sure he was as we trolled  away.  Our circuit was short ��� up  to the point and just inside the  worse of the swells, around a  kelp bed, and back down the  rock face. My partner was  facing my eagle friend on the  way back, but he had moved  from his dry fir to a bare,  high rock on the cliff face, and  in his sharp talons, silver side  flashing in the bright sun,  was my fish. Mr. Eagle was  worrying his head and gills,  preparing for a big feed, and  only stopped in his efforts to  watch our progress below.  That wily old codger  had dived on my jumping  salmon as soon as we had  left, made his catch and  carried him ashore for thc  feast. Well, we decided to  get that fish back in the hopes  of retrieving both fish and  gear.  We ran in close below him  and    waved    and    shouted.  but he only moved up the rock  a few yards. We saw no sign  of the dodger, which was  not only shiny chrome but  had a bright orange border.  It had to be nearby.  There was a break in the  rock face nearby, which provided us with a bit of beach  to land thc boat and tie it  ashore. Climbing to the point  of rock where we had last  seen thc eagle, we tried to  sneak up on him, but he heard  us coming and at the last  minute, went winging away  over our heads, silver sided  salmon Hashing in thc sun.  We decided to look further  for the gear, and by manoeuvring to a rock outcrop,  wc were able to see a small  ledge at the water line, and  on it lay the dodger and  spoon. Mr. Eagle had carried  that fish with all that gear to  the ledge, somehow worried  that hook from thc fish's  jaw and flown away with  his prize.  There was no way down to  it from above, so we decided  we could reach it with a boat  hook from the water. After  several attempts, we found  thc water too rough to gct  close enough safely, even  though the cliff face dropped  off deeply to unknown depths.  But my stout-hearted Norse  friend spotted a ledge along  which he though he could  climb lo get to the gear, so  by  nosing  up  to  a  nearby  Granny's Dinner  MENUs  Curried Shrimp  Brown Rice  Cabbage/Carrot  Salad   with  Dates  Peas with Baby Onions  Carrot & Celery Sticks  Dessert:   Apple   Crisp   with  Cream  METHOD: ~  Curried Shrimp: Saute together one diced onion, one  coarsely chopped green  pepper, and about two cups  of cut-up mushrooms.

He made thc ledge  eventually, and rather than  retracing his slippery route  back to the tlat rock, he  decided to make a flying  leap to the boat.

Of those fourteen years,  Stew himself says categorically. "They were the most  gratifying years of my life.  Thanks to all the young people  and the staff ��� the young  people first.

Nutrition notes  By Nutrition Division of B.C.  Mlnlstr) of Health  My son is a regular player on  the local soccer team. What  foods should hc eat before a  game?  In a keyed-up emotional  state an athlete's digestive  processes may be slowed  down. Therefore your son  should eat an easily digested  meal no later than three  hours before game time. He  should avoid foods that are  high in fat or oil, as they are  more slowly digested. The  meal should preferably contain foods high in easily digested carbohydrate. For a  light pre-game meal some  athletes choose a poached  egg, toast, and hot tea. Others  choose commercially prepared  liquid meals because nutrients in these meals are absorbed by the body quickly.  Liquid meals should be limited to pre-game use only as  they are not a good substitute  for regular meals.  What Is ordinary (able salt?  Ordinary table salt is  sodium chloride which is  salt formed from the combination of sodium and chlorine,  two minerals that arc essential  human health.

Before and after the war  Stew worked twenty-six years  for Canadian Pacific Express  in Winnipeg before moving  to the coast where even a  year working in the morgue  in Shaughnessy Hospital  failed to diminish his appetite  for laughter.  As a once-upon-a-timc  teacher at Elphinstone  School myself, I can personally attest to the great and  valued pleasure it was to work  with Stew, To meet him in thc  hallways in thc middle of a  harried day and to exchange  a few quips was to get a  glimpse of life's sunshine.  On behalf of everyone so  cheered by you, Stew. I  would say simply, thank  you. It is unnecessary for  us to tell you to be nice and  to smile. God bless.

My doctor said I should gain  twenty-five    pounds    before  my baby is bom. Isn't that a  lot of weight?  Your doctor is correct; a  mother should at least gain  twenty-five pounds to produce a baby weighing between  TA to 9 pounds, which is a  desirable healthy weight.  Babies weighing less than  6'/; pounds at birth may be  prone to such problems as  learning disabilities, infections, illnesses and physical  handicaps.

Project Sam, the clean-up  of derelict autos and white  goods, faces suspension of  the programme in favour of  private contractors. Apparently many municipalities  have grown impatient with  delay in service by SAM and  now the director seeks support to continue the programme.  Dayton and Knight have  listed specific requirements  for gas chlorination of the  Village water supply.  Watershed Control, which  the Regional District seeks  for the control of spraying by  Hydro, was a topic which sent  the Council into Committee  to resolve whether to support  the District and to determine  what was entailed. "We are  inclined to sec a bogey-man  under the bed," agreed the  mayor after the council came  out of Committee, "any time  thc Regional District asks us  to approve or support a plan."  "We should trust their  intentions," declared Alderman Hume. "Our suspicions  snowball all to hell."  Traffic problems near  Armour's Beach will not be  resolved by adding crosswalks, is the import of a  letter from the District Highways Manager. Crosswalks  create an additional hazard  by giving pedestrians a false  sense of security, his letter  states.  Gibsons Wildlife Club has  called Council to task for  neglecting to complete a  camper sewage dumping station next to the curling rink.  Discussion revealed that pool  access makes the location  unsuitable to use for dumping.  Alderman Hume thought that  Seamount Industrial subdivision was going to provide  such a station but inquiry  has revealed that there was  a proposal by an individual  to install one on a lot that  hc thought he might buy.  Hc has since dropped the  idea.  Committee reports touched  on marina, waterworks, and  building permits among  other topics. Alderman  Trainor announced 245 applications are in hand for moorage. The Marina Committee  is waiting now for the reports  from government agencies  that have been researching  the project and when all the  cost estimates and other data  are in hand, a public information meeting will be held.  By way of commendation of  the district's Provincial Emergency programme, Alderman  Trainor told of the prompt  and successful action to contain an oil spill caused by  destructive mischief at  Tuwanek. Nine hundred  gallons of fuel oil drained  into the salt chuck, but were  mopped up.  The new eight inch water  main to the Sunnycrest  Plaza area is progressing  slowly through hardpan  and mud. Alderman Hume  reported the new Omega  parking lot was proceeding  without a permit. "Why has  work progressed to this point  without a permit?" asked  Alderman Trainor. Alderman  Hume replied that an owner  can do work like bulldozing  without a permit but in this  case somebody got impatient  and went right on with constructing concrete forms.  It appears that the builder's  engineering specifications  do not meet in some details  the requirements set out  by the Village's engineering  consultants.

The trouble began in mid-  July. Over a two-day period.  the track surface was completely renewed. The top  five inches of soil were  removed and discarded. The  new earth was of a complete!)  different composition. At  first the difference was discernible only to a few afficion-  ados. I recall being approached b) a rather colourful railbird clad in a red  jacket and sporting a matching  nose, a fellow known to his  compatriots as Furnace-room  Fernie, A devoted student of  speed charts. Fernie confided  that thc horses were "running  too fast". I told him that  mine weren't, and went off  to thc paddock to examine the  entrants in the next race.  Looking back at the result  charts now. it's easy to see  that the horses were, in fact,  running much faster than  usual, about two seconds  faster in most races. The  new surface had what the  horsemen call "a lot of  bounce". Soon handicappers  were comparing horses who  had run over entirely different surfaces in their  previous starts. The results  were predictable, or rather,  the results were not predictable. The confusion was  compounded by thc first  rainstorm. Nobody needed  Furnace-room Fernie to tell  them that thc horses were  running too slow. far too slow.  HP became a quagmire, and  this was a new kind of mud.

Thc crowd was treated to the  sight of all entrants racing  twenty feet out from thc rail  to avoid thc bog on the inside. There were plenty of  upsets: on two occasions  stakes races were won by  claiming    horses. Three  year olds beat older horses.  Fillies beat colts. Favourites  disappeared and were never  seen again. Thc mud clung  to horse and rider and the  races became slow processions of large brown objects.  In their quest for a winner  at an) cost, some punters  took desperate measures,  even reluctantly parting with  20c to read the newspaper  selections. Others swallowed  their pride completely, purchasing tip sheets or accepting "hot tips". A few further  degraded themselves bv pin-  stabbing and hunch-betting.  To no avail.  But one or two refused to  join in the panic. For them  there was but one course of  action. Drastic measures  were called for.

Box 3622, Vancouver,  Strokers  Bv Dennis Gra>  1 hau- always felt a pleasant  experience is wasted unless  you can share it with someone close to you. It was understandable then that the boys  and I wanted their mother to  come along on one of our  motorcycle trips. We took  every precaution to ensure her  comfort and carried along  mam luxuries such as a tent  and a deck chair.  Now I realize women don't  get the same kick out of cooking over a cow chip fire, sleeping in the open and bouncing  around all day on a motorcycle, but I was sure there-  were many sights and experiences she would enjoy  (besides we needed a good  cook). I still do not believe  what happened. I would not  say she was a jinx, but if we  were at sea we would have  sunk.  The first night we were  evicted from our cabin by  thc owner. who decided to  re-activate his gold mine. It  was near midnight when we  got back to the truck. Spots  where we had never been  bothered by flies before were  suddenly filled with airborne-  piranhas. The only thing we  had going for us the first day  was the weather ��� it was  warm and sunny: the next  day it rained but since it was  a semi-arid area we knew the  rain would not last. The  next day it snowed. By this  time we were ten hours  from the nearest oasis of  sanity. Wc decided to take  the most direct route over  forestry roads to its location.  Now we had seen many  pleasant parts of the Chil-  cotin country and were sure  we had experienced most of  its discomforts, but we had  not experienced Chilcotin  Gumbo. People who think  1 am talking about mud have  never seen this brand of  gumbo either. Most of the  time the earth is so dry-  up there you can hardly spit,  but when it rains the top half  inch becomes the most powerful type of crazy glue known to  man. It is a collection of  Fraser Rise-relay, straw, small  lagged rocks and centuries  of animal dung. You could  make your fortune selling it  as glue if you  could get it  out of a can. Soon the tires  pick up so much they won't  pass under the fenders.  the little rocks fill the spaces  between the chain links  and the bike spokes. When  you get off to clean thc-  bike. great mud stilts build  up under your feet, and when  one breaks off. it is like stepping in a hole, a damn gooey  hole. Soon your clothes  stick to themselves, your  pants stick to the seat and  even your fingers stick together, and when you forgetfully wipe flies away, your  face dries into a Greek tragedy  mask. Now even if you  could get clean food to your  mouth you can't open it without breaking your face. When  underway, mud was thrown  in large chunks. My wife,  who was riding behind me.  collected most of this. It  piled up on her helmet, her  shoulders and all down her  back and did nothing at all  for her disposition.  If it rains for more than a  few hours the gumbo gets to  immeasurable depths depending on how long it rains and  how many idiots have stirred  it up. Word spreads quickly  up there and soon we had  spectators on horseback  watching our curious performance. They did not offer to  help any more than you would  help a mugging victim on  T.V.  When it got dark our  spectators mysteriously  disappeared as suddenly as  they came and we were left  to grope our way along in the  stormy night aided only by  the occasional flash of lightning. Somehow we made it to  a ranch about ten that night  and were allowed to sleep in  a tool shed. It was reasonably  clean, dry and had the softest  cement floor I ever slept on!  Although 1 cannot remember  what: something must have  gone right that year, for my  wife came with us again the  follow ing year.  Bridge  If enough players are interested, there will be a round-  robin type of rubber bridge-  played at the Golf Club  the first Thursday of each  month commencing October  5.

It's great  fun for tins tots to grandparents and a good way to  exercise and keep fit. Over  200.000 Canadians are active  in figure skating through the  Canadian Figure Skating  Association iCFSA).  The National Skating Test  Programme was established  by the CFSA in 1965. The  programme leaches all the  basic mou-s in skating. It  is a series of tests arranged  in order of difficulty, whereby the skater can gauge his  success on thc ice. 7 he standard for passing these tests is  not too high so as not to  discourage anyone. There is  also a system of awards in the  form of colourful felt badges  to accent the skater's accomplishments.  There arc fourteen tests in  thc programme and Ihe  average skater can pass four  or fixe in a season. By the  time the skater has completed  the tenth test,  hc  is  quite  capable of performing the  preliminar) dances and  figures.  National Skating lest lessons arc available on the Sunshine- Coast as well as ice-  time for patch and freestyle.  Information regarding the  Sunshine Coast Figure  Skating Club's activities lor  the coming season will be  available shortly. The executive has been working on the  details of ice times and schedules and registration will  be taking place soon.  A special note to avid  figure skaters and spectators  of the sport: 'Skate Canada  78' is to be held in Vancouver this year ��� a first in  B.C. for this type of competition! This International  Invitational Competition  will be held at the Pacific  Coliseum October 26 to 29.  Tickets arc now on sale at  the Vancouver Ticket Centre  or vou may contact Nancy  Douglas at 886-2103 for further information.

A.F.. retired, who is Deputy  Regional Director for P.E.P.  and Arthur MePhee, Navy  Fleet Air Arm. retired.  Area Coordinator. P.E.P..  who is a resident of Sechelt.  As Mr. Clegg will have been  involved in the training  exercises being conducted  at Abbotsford Airport on  Saturday. September 10.  in which at least one of our  local pilots and observer  will bc participating as a  search unit, their impressions  and experiences should be  of great interest. As this is  the second exercise in training  flight crews and coordinating  control of P.E.P. search units  from all over the province,  thc programme should be  gaining in efficiency and  techniques clear cut.  Mr. Clegg will also outline  the increasing use of Flying  Clubs throughout thc province  to provide greater coverage of  large areas for less cost to  the public than trying to dupli  cate the efforts through the  Department of National  Defence.  Arthur MePhee will provide  some interesting sidelights in  the sue of CB. radio as a  communicating link between  search aircraft and thc pleasure boating community as an  aid in coordinating a search  in the event of a marine  emergency or in the search  ofa lost aircraft.  Following thc presentation.  President Doug Roy will have  important matters to discuss  with the members concerning  Acro Club business.  Pender  School use  On September 25. Monday,  at 7:30 p.m., the residents of  the Pender Harbour area arc  invited to Pender Harbour  Secondary School gym to  discuss how the school  can be used to the best  advantage by the adult  population. The residents  are encouraged to propose  courses for thc winter and  those who have talents are-  asked to share these with  others in thc community.  The plan is to get together  a programme which truly  expresses the needs and  wants   of   the    community.  For further information  please call 885-3512.

Court news of the week  Double       standard  Driving while under suspension usually carries a jail  sentence. Judge Walker  informed Sharon Jean Thomas  and the Judge then went ��n  in say thai he would use a  sort of double standard and  take into consideration the  fact lhal she was married  with an infant daughter of  lour months. In his presentence repori. Probation  Officer Peters had pointed to  the facl thai Mrs. Thomas'  suspension was the result of  accumulated points arising  from a couple of speeding  tickets and a conviction for  driving wilh undue eare and  attention resulting from a  single vehicle accident,  Mi. Peters requested a conditional discharge with a  community service order.  Mrs. Thomas was fined  $500 and given one year ol  supervised probation with an  order to perform twenty-live  hours of community service  under Mr. Peters' direction.  She was given four months to  pay the line.  Police  do not  need  lo  give  Explanation:  Judge Walker ruled that  Police Officers Logan and  Nash were not required to  explain their actions in taking  Leonard Frank Pearee first to  a mobile breath analysing  vehicle (known as a Batmobile) and then to the Royal  Canadian Mounted Police's  Gibsons Detachment for a  breathalyser analysis. The  accused was pleading not  guilty to an offence under  Section 235 of the Criminal  Code of Canada known  simply as "refusal to blow".  Mr. Pearee was the sole  occupant of a motor vehicle  which was stopped at 2:15  a.m. on April 9. 1978. in a  roadside check a half mile  west of the golf course on  Highway 101. Constable  Nash testified that hc noted a  SUNSHINE COAST  PEST CONTROL  Wo offer a  Complete Pest  Control Servic  883-2531  the breath of the accused and  formed the opinion that he  was impaired. He read the  breathalyser demand to Mr.  Pearee and took him to the  police patrol car nearby in  which Constable Logan was  seated. The accused got into  the back of lhc vehicle which  then proceeded approximately  half a mile further along  Highway 101 in thc direction  of Seehelt to a mobile breathalyser unit which was stationed there. Constable Logan  spoke lo Corporal Wade who  was operating lhc unit and  then advised Constable  Nash lhal the parly would be  going to Gibsons, Testimony  was given to lhc effect that  one person was being tested  when the constables arrived  with the accused and that  there were two people waiting. In separate testimony,  both constables estimated  Ihat it would have been  necessary lo wait at least  one hour at the Batmobile  before the accused could  have been tested there.  Under cross examination  by Defence Counsel Cranston,  Constable Logan testified  that no explanation was given  lo thc accused lor his not  being tested at the mobile  unit, and he conceded that the  accused had not actually  said "no" in response to  the breathalyser demand.  At the Gibsons Detachment Office, Constable Nash  read the customary caution  to the accused to the effect  that hc did not have to answer  any questions but that anything hc said could be used in  evidence against him. Constable Nash then asked the  accused at what time he had  started to drive and testified  Ihat the accused had responded; "You told me not  to answer any questions".  Constable Logan, who had  been setting up the breathalyser at the Gibsons Detachment asked the accused to  come over to the machine.  The constable testified that  the accused responded:  "I was taken to tbe van and  refused a test there so why  should I take one now".  Constable Logan testified  ihat he (old the accused:  "You were not," and went on  to say, "Will you take a  breathalyser now? Yes or  no." He said the accused  had  replied:      "I  have   no  intention of taking one now."  Constable Logan then told the  accused that he would be  charged with refusal to provide such samples of his  breath as needed to enable  an analysis to be made.  The accused was alleged to  have responded: "1 didn't  refuse it. You refused to give  it tome."  Defence Counsel Cranston  in his submission expressed  concern that nothing was  conveyed to the accused.  "Citizens have rights," he  asserted, "And are not to be  hauled around at the whim  of police officers." He contended thai refusal had not  been proven beyond reasonable doubt, and that the rights  of the accused were at stake  in thai Ihe officers did not  provide any explanation  although they were asked  several times. He contended  that Ihere therefore existed a  reasonable excuse to refuse  Prosecuting Counsel McCallum contended that the  time lapse had been adequately explained and that  thc demand was reasonable.  Finding in favour of the  Crown, Judge Walker said  the breathalyser would have  revealed innocence had the  accused not been impaired.  He was not satisfied that the  Batmobile incident took the  case outside of the normal  circumstances. He said that  the officers were not required  to give an explanation. Judge  Walker lined the accused  $350, suspended his license  for three months, placed him  on six months probation and  ordered him to attend the  impaired drivers' course.  On another charge of driving  with a blood alcohol content in  excess of .08, Leonard Frank  Pearee was fined a further  $750, and placed on supervised probation for one year.  In other Court news,  Stephen John Graham was  fined $300 for a drinking and  driving offence, placed on  probation for one year, given  a three month suspension of  his license and ordered to  take thc impaired drivers'  course. For a similar offence,  Boyd Goesen was fined $300,  his license suspended for  three months and he was  placed on unsupervised probation for six months and  ordered to take the impaired  drivers'course.

Armaments chosen for us  By the Office of Church In  Society, The United Church  of Canada  Sometime during the next  year, the federal government  will tell Canadians which of  half-a-dozen new fighter  planes we are going to spend  $2.5 billion on.  But if we think that our  Canadian government is  making that decision, we're  kidding ourselves. Thc decision about what we get was  made for us Canadians, the  instant we announced we  wanted just one model of  fighter, to serve dual requirements in Europe and in North  America. The plane will be  the F-I5 Eagle, made by  McDonnell Douglas, costing  somewhere between $18  million and $25 million each.  We will buy that plane  because that's what the  United States needs to sell us.  The U.S. has chosen the  F-15 for its own forces. But  even the Pentagon can't  afford it any more; its cost to  them has soared from $12.8  million each in 1976, to  $17.8 in 1978. And it's still  going up. The only way the  U.S. can bring its own defense  expenses within limits is to  sell more F-15's to other  countries, to make a profit,  and to reduce their perplane  production and development  costs.  Armaments expert and  author Tom Gervasi summed  up the U.S. philosophy:  "Thc F-15 is the aircraft we  need, so it had to be offered  abroad."  That's why President  Carter and Defense officials  were so anxious to win approval for their sale of sixty  F-15's to Saudi Arabia. As it  now turns out. the Saudis  didn't ask for. and hadn't  considered thc F-15. Rather,  it was the only plane offered  by the U.S. An Air Force  Colonel has been quoted:  "The F-15 has a cost problem,  and it makes sense to amortize  thc overrun with a big sale to  thc Saudis."  So the Air Force is doing  what it can to help McDonnell  Douglas market their fighter.  Japan has reportedly agreed  to take 100 F-15's over the  next six years, at approximately $27 million each.  Other countries indicated  as probably purchasers, for a  total export sale of some 400  F-15's, include Australia,  Western Germany, France,  and���yes���Canada.  Because of Ihe Pentagon's  own    commitment    to    thc  F-15. no other U.S. tighter  stands much of a chance.  And thc U.S. can apply far  more incentives (and clout,  if necessary) to our Canadian  economy than can lhc European consortium which is  also lobbying for our purchase.  Now, thc F-15 Eagle is a  remarkable fighter plane.  Experts describe it as the  most sophisticated combat  aircraft in the world, lt can  tly at two-and-a-half times the  speed of sound, can carry a  stupifying load of cannon  shells, missiles, napalm and  turn sharper and climb faster than any other similar  plane.  Bul is thai what Canada  needs? Should wc be buying  lighters at all? The Rev.  Charles Catto, a United  Church Minister who runs a  world-wide    volunteer   pro  gramme called Operation  Beaver, has been crying for  action. For the cost of each  F-15 Eagle, he points out, we  could built up to 1,000 houses.  Their construction would  create two to three times as  many jobs as would result  from defense contracts; and  they would provide work for  thc unskilled and semi-skilled,  who suffer most from unemployment, rather than for the  highly skilled, who are already  in short supply. Providing  adequate housing at reasonable prices has been demonstrated to produce better  health and better educational  standards among children,  especially among low income  and native peoples. Those  benefits, and thc houses  themselves, will surely be  useful to Canada for a lot  longer than even the most  sophisticated aircraft in the  world.

It is a huge site  surrounded by massive defensive walls and a deep moat,  protected on Ihe west by a  high ridge of rock which rises  up sharply from the flat plain.  Everything an archaeologist  ever dreamed of but what a  to write in my diary on the  twelfth of May:  "As I sit here on thc edge  of Trench E I can hear the  cuckoo calling from the  gardens beyond thc East  Gate.

As nothing is straight  forward or logical in these  things, I found myself on a  British dig surrounded by  Australians, including one  Palestinian from Perth. When  the team was eventually  all assembled, Afghanistan,  Britain, the United States and  Canada were also represented.  The first day on site, the  director designated the  trenches and I found myself  in a twenty meter by twenty  meter (yes, even archaeology  has gone metric!) area in the ^^^^^  middle of the site in charge of atop a peak  about a dozen local workmen, clouds streak  We had imported about  eight men from Ghazni, a  town between Kabul and  Kandahar, who had been  trained by Italian archaeologists. By some stroke of luck,  I got Rasul who was a mud  brick expert (it's very important to bc able to tell what is  mudbrick wall and what isn't  and quite often it all looks  the same!) and who worked  with good humour despite the  which our trenches are situated. I can no longer hear'  the tinkle of their bells. A'  workman is humming a tuneless melody against the  background of work ��� earth  against metal, stone against'  wood. Everyone seems to be  half asleep this morning.  Silently two camels piled high  with sticks sway by along the  road to the hustle bustle  bazaars of New Kandahar.  The old city is silent, encased  within lush gardens against  the craggy cliffs. Looking up,  thc old Buddhist stupa rests  firmly against the blue sky  Today wispy  ^^^^^ the sky. It's  hazy to thc south towards the  desert. In the early morning  light the smoke and the mist  mingle amidst tent and tree.  The mist is burnt away by  the orange sun fat in thc  East.

In the distance beyond thc  gardens to the east a continuous  puff  of  black   smoke  fact   that  I  was   a   woman, belches from the kilns; bricks  the only working on the site.  Surprisingly, communication wasn't too much of a  problem. The Afghans  whom I've met during my  travels in that country are  remarkable linguists and  Rasul was no exception.  He spoke Italian and a few  words of English and was  able, strange as it may  seem to understand my brand  of Persian and the little Italian  I'd learned from an Arab while  digging in the Libyan Sahara  in 1973! Unfortunately  my conversations were somewhat limited unless one of our  Afghan Representatives  came to see how things were  going in Trench E.  One of them, Mr. Nasiri  as he liked to be called, was a  delight. The first indication  that I'd have that he was in  the vicinity was hearing a  funny voice strangely like my  own speaking to the workmen. I'd look up from writing  in my site book or from some  of that fiddling work which  is always associated with  archaeology, to sec thc amateur dramatics of Mr. Nasiri  doing what became, after  some practise, an impressive  imitation of thc Canadian  archaeologist instructing her  merry band of Afghan  workers!  Trench E turned out to be  somewhat of a disappointment as soil from the area  had been taken, over the  years, by the villagers to  put on their fields.
