More pictures on Page 8.  38 finishers  Fools Day Run success  Approximately sixty people attended the Public Hearing held  in the Senior Citizens' Hall in Sechelt last Monday, March 26, to  review a number of rezoning applications. The application from  the Catholic Church on Cowrie Street to make their property  conform by designating it "Public Assembly" was received  without comment or question. '  Concern was expressed, however, over the application from  Pebble Holdings to rezone Lots 30���35 inclusive of Block G,  District Lot 304, Plan 15854 to allow a sheet metal shop and  other industrial uses. The are* is near Wharf Road, and Village Planner Doug Roy told the meeting that the Community  Plan for the Village considered this area as suitable for service  industrial development and that the proposal was consistent  with this designation.  Bill Wong expressed concern on behalf of the residents  living near the property because of the potential nuisance factors. Mr. Roy said the matter; of nuisance was arguable. He  said that a pleasing appearance would be expected of any buildings erected, but he conceded that noise and smell could constitute nuisances. He pointed out, however, that there is a  twenty-foot lane between the property and the adjoining residential land, and that other stipulations such as a landscape  buffer could be brought to bear if desired when applications for  Building Permits are received.  Mr. Virtanen expressed concern over the enforcement of  regulations, and he noted that these are not being enforced in  previously developed industrial zones. Planning Committee  Chairman Larry MacDonald said that if such regulations are  written into the By-law, the Village could handle the situation.  When asked about access, Mr. Roy noted that a continuation of  Inlet Avenue, as yet unconstructed, is available on the west  boundary. "The building of the road would be a condition of  development," he said. Mr, Virtanen said that the provision of  a lane did not carry any stipulation that it should be paved, and  he spoke of other situations in the Village with unpaved lanes.  Gibb's proposal attacked  Pender adamant on dump  gional Board, said that if burning was eliminated the landfill sites would fill up four  times as fast. Derby estimated that the Pender dump  There was laughter as Alderman Morgan Thompson  informed the meeting that  there is a paved lane in the  Village, and cheers as he concluded, "If it's required,  we'll pave it." Ron Slack said  that the Village has been going on like this for ten years  and that many promises had  been made and nothing done.  Nell Jaeger maintained that  the proposal is not consistent with the intent of the  Community Plan since the  Plan provides for no new  industrial development until  the present industrial land is  used up.  A perusal of the Sechelt  Village Official Community  Plan appears to bear out  Nell Jaeger's contention that  that application is not consistent. We quote from the  Report (page 9):  "Expansion of commerciai  zoning will not take place  until existing areas are substantially built up or redeveloped. Expansion shall  then be in a staged orderly  manner progressing outward  from the existing core."

This compares with  twenty starters in the inaugural run and thirteen finishers.  First to cross the finish line  at the Cenotaph in Sechelt was  Eric Hagedorn of Roberts  Creek competing for the  first time. The Coast News  Cup was awarded Hagedorn  by last year's winner, Adrian  Belshaw, who finished in  second place this year just  four minutes behind Hagedorn. 7Ve winner's time was  one hour and twenty-two minutes.  The first six finishers all  finished the fourteen mile  run within ten minutes of each  other. After Hagedorn and  Belshaw, Calvin Lee of Hopkins Landing was third in a  time of one hour twenty-  eight-and-a-half minutes;  Leith Skinner of Sechelt finished fourth in one hour  twenty-nine    minutes;    Rob  Patterson of Vancouver finished a half-mihute behind  Skinner; and Stu Craigan of  Sechelt finished the run in  one minute over an hour-and-  a-half.  Patti Cawsey was the first  lady to finish in the splendid  time of one hour forty-nine  minutes. Patti, like Adrian  Belshaw and Leith Skinner,  finished the run for the  second consecutive year. Also  a second-time finisher was  Fran Berger, running this  year without the moral support of George Matthews who  inexplicably left town at  short notice this weekend.

Leading the attack on Gibb's proposals was Director Joe Harrison of Pender Harbour who strongly opposed the first recommendation which suggested that a referendum be held in  each electoral area at the time of the municipal elections in  November to decide, area by area, whether weekly, bi-monthly,  or no garbage pick up is required. "We don't want any more  referendums in Area A about garbage," declared Harrison.  Particularly drawing Harrison's ire was a recommendation  made by Director Gibb that the garbage dumps at Pender Harbour, Halfmoon Bay, and Gibsons be closed down and a central  facility in Sechelt be utilized for a centralized operation. "The  Pender Harbour dump is the best dump in the area," said Harrison. Declaring that regional garbage service was not appropriate for the Pender Harbour area, Harrison went on, "I am  totally opposed to this and will take all steps possible to prevent this going ahead."  Director David Hunter from Area F took issue with Harrison's stand. "Let's have a referendum," said Hunter. "It is  my impression that there is a faction in Pender Harbour which  is not getting their views through to this board."  Harrison lashed out at Di- cial government to undertake  as the Pollution Control Board  requires.  "In three years time the  people in Pender Harbour will  either have to have a new  site or go along with centralization then," said Derby.

When contacted by the  Coast News, Bill Hamilton,  Regional Manager of the Pollution Control Board, said that  the main difficulty with the  Pollution Control Board lay  with the burning of garbage.  "No permit has been issued  for burning," said Hamilton.  The situation is complicated  by the fact that the Forestry  Branch does require that the  garbage be burnt before it  accumulates in sufficient  quantities to cause a fire  hazard. Hamilton said that the  Sechelt garbage dump was the  best site on the Sunshine  Coast because there were no  water courses which could  lead to leaching of waste or  noxious materials. He said  that the deep face at the Gibsons dump caused some problems though no leaching had  yet been reported to him, On  the subject of the Pender  Harbour dump, the Regional  Manager of Pollution Control  said that it was a good site if  properly handled. "It's the  most likely site to have leach-  ate problems," said Hamilton, "but the nearby water  course has been ditched  around the site."

Regional  Board Chairman Ed Nicholson, who is also the Director  for Area B which is facing a  serious water shortage this  summer unless a line can be  put through bringing them  Regional Board water, returned from Victoria this  weekend where he had discussions with the officials of  the three provincial departments concerned.  Chairman Nicholson told  the Coast News that Allan  Williams, Minister of Labour,  agreed as of March 5 to a request from the Sechelt Indian  Band for a land swap to compensate them for a perpetual  easement on land required  for the Utility Corridor.  Nicholson is hopeful that once  agreement in principle is  reached between the provincial government and the  Sechelt Indian Band work  can begin in the very near  future.  "It is my understanding,"  said Nicholson, "that if the  land value being offered is  equal to the value of the land  used for the easement then  they'll have a deal." The  Regional Board Chairman  has asked the Indian Band  Council to grant permission to  begin waterline construction  as soon as the agreement in  principle is reached.  Nicholson is hopeful  that construction of the line to  supply much needed water to  West Sechelt can begin within  the next few weeks.  Hydro at Saturday's meeting  were corporate vice-president  Charles Nash and E.Crowley, head of Hydro's engineering department. A total of owns  twenty-six of the Hydro of- Lake,  ficers were reported to be in  attendance. The Environmental Land Use Committee  of the provincial government  was represented by Allan Ferguson and Brian Gates.  The purpose that B.C.  Hydro sought for the meeting was to select one of four  alternatives across the Secheit Peninsula but speaker  after speaker addressed themselves to the broader question of the need for the line  to be built at all. Several  speakers made reference to a  study done by U.B.C. professors Helliwell and Cox  which indicates that much of  the power requirements Hydro foresees are for the forest  industry and Helliwell and  Cox find that the use of  hog fuel, a waste by-product of the industry, could  generate much more of the  power requirements than  Hydro had indicated.  Environmental concerns  were also a major concern of  the meeting and public concern was expressed about the  inevitable spoiling of tourist  potential of the area If the  huge powerline crossed in the  neighbourhood of Pender Harbour. Hydro's use of herbicides for vegetation control  was also a subject of great  concern. Residents of Nelson  Island were particularly  concerned about the effects  on Big Quarry Lake both as a  source of drinking water and  as an emergency landing place  for float planes.   Perhaps typical of the property owners who would be  affected was Charles Ovans,  retired Secretary of the B.C.  Teachers Federation who  property on Sakinaw  "I hesitated about  coming to this meeting,"  said Ovans, "because my interest was a private interest.  Upon reflection, however, 1  began to wonder just how private was my interest. I am  after all sixty-six years old  and there aren't many years  left ahead of me. What we  are doing is trying to save this  matchless environment for  generations to come."  Terry Chandler of Lasqueti  Island pointed out that the  powerline is primarily for the  expansion of the forest industry. He quoted a recent  report released by Statistics Canada which expressed  concern about overforesting.  "Do we want to build this  line before we know whether  the trees are there?"  Chandler also proposed a  resolution that the meeting  should seek an official government public hearing with Rafe  Mair, Minister of the Environment. The meeting passed  the resolution with an overwhelming majority.

Time for thought
The incident with the nuclear power
station in Pennsylvania is a graphic
illustration of something we have been
saying repeatedly in these columns, that
is perhaps it is time to slow down the pace
of technological innovation. This is not to
suggest that technological innovation is
bad. If one eats a huge meal too rapidly
and suffers from indigestion only a fool
would conclude that food is too blame. It
appears from this vantage point that we
are in danger of incurring social indigestion caused by the rapidity with which
we arc consuming technological innovation.
Whether we are talking about the
use of herbicides, the construction of
giant powerlines or nuclear reactors, we
would argue that the burden of proof of
hartnlcssness should lie with those
who seek to introduce the innovation.
To proceed with chemical spraying or
powerline construction because they have
not been proved harmful is very much
putting the cart before the horse. Those
innovations should be proven harmless
before they are proceeded with. Not to do
so is to render the human lives affected to
thc status of guinea pigs.
Nor is this an academic exercise only
for the residents of the Sunshine Coast.
As you  may  read elsewhere in this
paper, giant powerlines are being opposed in thc United States because of
suspected effects on human health. Studies on laboratory animals indicate
clearly that such effects take place and
yet a giant powerline is being planned
to cross the Sunshine Coast.
Properly regarded, the experts of
B.C Hydro should be seen as having a
vested interest in the construction of
powerlines. Theirs is a partial perspective and this province desperately needs
a well thought out energy policy with
built-in safeguards and assurances that
what we are getting is what we need and
what we can safely tolerate.
If, as seems possible, a provincial election is in the offing we should demand
that our candidates and the parties they
represent have something cogent and
credible to say about the energy requirements of this province and how they are
to be met to ensure not only that we have
enough power to satisfy our growing
requirements but that such power should
be provided to a people with the health
to enjoy it. The future is in our keeping
and the decisions that are made in our
lifetime will affect the children of our
children. We must do everything in our
power not to jeopardize their world.
Centralized power
We would suggest that one issue that
must be given some attention in the
forthcoming federal election is the question of the control of multi-national corporations, if in fact any such control is
possible. The harsh fact of international
life is that tremendous power is being
centralized in very few hands. Can this
country, or any other, continue to exercise meaningful control over economic
decisions which affect its future. Does
democracy as a political system, one that
we have been trained to support, have a
Pierre Trudeau has been having a
great deal of early fun in the campaign
because of some halting efforts Joe
Clark made to explain how he would
handle the multi-national giants but in
truth the Liberal party and Pierre Trudeau have shown no particular ability
whatsoever to indicate that they can or
want to adequately control the economy
of this country.
It may well be that the situation is
already irreversible, that real power is
already too far removed from even the
leaders of this country for any choice
made by the Canadian people to mean
anything at all but if that is so a little
straight talking about it would be good for
all of us.

Suddenly in this spring time
of 1979 elections are appearing like so many crocuses.
Prime Minister Trudeau has
finally called the on-again
off-again federal election.
May 22nd will see Canadians
from Newfoundland to Vancouver Island and from Nia-
gara-On-the-Lake to Elles-
mere Island go to the polls to
choose a government.
As- if that weren't enough,
the inside word from Victoria
is that Bill Bennett may well
announce on Monday or Tuesday of this week that a provincial election will be called.
Apparently Bennett was all
set to go to the people after
the unveiling of one of the
patented Socred boffo budgets
which invariably precede
elections, had some second
thoughts when Trudeau
announced the federal election, but may decide to do it in
any case.
Also in the news is the upcoming battle in Britain between Margaret "The Iron
Maiden' Thatcher and Sunny
Jim Callaghan as the century-
old struggle between the British Tories and the world's
oldest democratic socialist
party goes through its latest
chapter. Back in Canada, the
potato people in Prince Edward Island are weighing the
relative merits of the Liberals
and the Conservatives as the
country's smallest government chooses its leaders and
in Quebec Claude Ryan is
seeking a seat in the legislature in Argenteuil with all
of the resources of Levesque's
Parti Quebecois mobilized
to deny him victory. Ah, well!
All of the political tumult
helps to keep our minds off
nuclear reactors and whether
they will or will not explode.
Not long ago a thoughtful
letter to the editor in this
paper regretted the paper's
silence on the death of W.A.
C.Bennett. It seemed to mc,
as editor, that persons closer
to the man than I were quite
adequately commenting on
the man and his influence on
the province. With elections
in the air so profusely, however, I would comment that
in many ways Bennett the
Elder is still very much a
dominant figure in this province, Both leaders of the
contending parties in the provincial legislature are more
deeply affected by Bennett
the Elder than is generally
realized. Let me explain.
When David Barrett was
first Leader of the Opposition he was sweeping in his
criticism of the older Bennett, as one would expect from
a leader of an opposing party.
Particularly, if memory serves
me correctly, was he critical
of Bennett's control of the
Ministry of Finance in addition to the premiership. Yet
when Barrett was premier he
too took the Finance portfolio unto himself. A more
significant and topical parallel was Barrett's calling of an
election in December 1975
with a majority government
and two years to run on his
electoral mandate. This was,
of course, entirely in the tradition of Bennett the Elder
who mastered the tactic of
calling an election when it
best suited the government
regardless of how much time
to govern was still available.
If Bennett the Younger does
indeed call an election this
week it will again be just over
three years since he was elected with a majority and his
electoral mandate has almost
two years yet to run. It is apparent that both Barrett and
Bennett the Younger who
grew to maturity during the
twenty year reign of the elder
Bennett have learned their
politicking at the feet of
the old master. Dead or alive
W.A.CBennett's stamp is
still on the politics of British
Now with all due respect to
the departed Bennett, I happen to think that this is most
unfortunate, It seems to me
that the privilege given to the
head of the government under our parliamentary system
to call an election whenever
he sees fit is being badly
abused. Firstly because elections are expensive and once
every five years is quite often enough unless the government is defeated in the legislature, Secondly, the opportunism that we see at both the
federal and provincial levels
leads to protracted periods of
indecision where we have virtually government by opinion
polls — a game that Trudeau
has been playing for almost
a year for example.
I am not an admirer of the
present provincial government
but I believe it would be better for British Columbia if
elected governments served
their full term of office. As
Davey Barrett discovered,
opportunistic election-calling
is not a game that everyone
can play, It remains to be seen
whether Bill Bennett can play
it any better than Barrett.
If, indeed, he does call an
election this week it will be
an indication that the spirit
of W. A.C.Bennett and his way
of doing things are still a
considerable force on the political life of this province.
Meanwhile out of Ottawa
comes the election that we are
sure we are going to have.
The early going seems to
indicate     that     Trudeau's
political instinct tells him his
best chance of success lies
in belittling Joe Clark. Clark,
it seems likely, will fight back
in kind so that the future government of the country
seems likely to be determined
on which of the two leading
candidates for the top office
in the land can best abuse the
other. It is not a politically
healthy situation in a country
which is faced with crucial
problems and key decisions.
There's something about
the first green shoots bursting through the winter ground
that makes people want to
travel. Perhaps it's some ancient force inherited from our
wandering, hunting, food-
gathering ancestors, but whatever it is there is a distinct
relationship between the
emerging plants and the increase in ferry traffic.
That increased ferry traffic usually turns our sleepy
little community into a relatively hectic place. I saw a

I Coast News, April 3.1979  3.  Letters to the Editor  Opponent criticizes premier  Editor:  In January Premier Bennett  told the people of B.C. that  he was offering them "a piece  of the rock", five shares in  B.C.Resources Investment  Corporation worth $10 or more  apiece.  In March he said that  although the underlying book  value of the shares was  $12 he was offering British  Columbians the chance to buy  5,000 each at $6, which he  called a "once-in-a-lifetime  opportunity".  Coming from the premier of  the province, that is a pretty  powerful sales pitch, but before jumping at the "opportunity" to buy additional  shares everyone should read  the prospectus published by  B.C.R.I.C. in connection with  the share issue. It is available at every place where you  can make application for the  shares, and it does not contain any claim that the shares  are a bargain.  The prospectus states, in  part, as follows:  RISK FACTORS AFFECTING    COMMON    SHARES  "The common shares are  not guaranteed in any manner  by the province of British  Columbia or any other government, nor has any government  any direct or indirect obligation with respect to them.  "Future prices of the common shares will be determined by such factors as the  selling intentions of persons  receiving free common shares  from the province, the general  economic climate, conditions  in financial markets and the  success or otherwise of B.C.  R.I.C and its subsidiaries in  attaining their objectives.  Rainy River  anniversary  Editor:  The citizens of Rainy River  extend a friendly invitation to  all former residents to join  them for their 75th anniversary celebration and homecoming days, August 3���6,  1979.  This celebration will feature a parade, ball games, a  craft show, golf tournament,  Armed Forces day, dances,  school reunion, and many  more events too numerous to  mention.  It will be a time of family  gatherings, meeting old  friends and former classmates.  If any readers of this paper  have lived or attended school  in Rainy River, or if you  know of any classmates living in your area, send names  to:  M.E.Alice Brunn, Co-ordinator, Rainy River 75th Anniversary Comm.,  Box 220,  Rainy River, Ontario  "Since B.C.R.I.C. has only pie not familiar with the stock  recently  commenced  opera- market would be wise to con-  tions, potential projects and suit with a broker as to whe-  investments in which BCRIC ther he  would  recommend  may participate or which may these shares as the best buy  be acquired by it are not yet available to them,  known.   In   addition   results  experienced by B.C.R.I.C.  subsidiaries over the past five  years are not necessarily  indicative of future performance. No representations  can be made as to the future  influence of these factors on  prices of B.C.R.I.C.'s common shares."  In short, the prospectus  warns investors that they are  entrusting their money not  to the government but to a  group of private individuals  who will invest it in ways not  yet decided on projects that  may or may not make a profit, and no one is guaranteeing anything.  Before risking any money  they can't afford to lose, peo-  Normally people promoting  the sale of stocks are forbidden by law from claiming  that shares will be worth  more than they are offered  for. Apparently the premier  can get away with it, and a  lot of innocent people believe  he somehow stands behind  what he says. He doesn't.  Apply for your "free",  shares by all means. It is the  only way to avoid losing what  you have already paid for.  But as to buying more shares,  give that the same careful  consideration as any other  speculative investment.  Vic Stephens, MLA  Leader,  B.CConservative Party  Historic correction  Editor:  I should like to use a small  portion of your paper if permitted, to offer clarification to  an article appearing in a Sechelt publication dated February 28, written by a Gibsons  resident.  Therein one reads that Gibsons Museum was established  by the Village. With all due  respect to members of our  Village Council, I herein offer  a correction for the benefit of  all local residents.  Firstly: commencement of  collecting artifacts for a  "hoped for" museum was  conducted by Lester R.Peterson; formulating a display in  the basement of his home.  Secondly: the official name  is Elphinstone Pioneer Museum Society. I am pleased to  announce, having been one of  a group of five persons to  commence negotiations to  become established under the  Societies Act, our application  was filed and registered on  June 22,1965.  It was sincerely appreciated  when later Village Council  offered use of the basement  section of the municipal library so that museum artifacts might be displayed.  When still later the library  building became an addition  to the original structure, the  Museum Society was granted  use of the larger basement  section. Following this, however, the membership was advised of said quarters being  considered for lease to the  School Board. The Mayor and  Council members met with the  Museum Society and pledged  a new building. This is the  present Museum building on  Winn Road.  For clarification, the Village  owns the building; the Museum Society conducts the  affairs of the museum. As a  member of the Society, I  herein express best wishes to  the Gibsons Municipal Council as they prepare for their  special event, the Fiftieth  Anniversary as a Municipality. F.J.Wyngaert,  Gibsons, B.C.

The demise of the  ILA left in its wake only the  travesty of a company union  that may as well have been no  union at all. For the average  member of the beaten organization, it meant sporadic  employment in unchanged  circumstances ��� only worse.  Now they were compelled to  work beside or under, the very  men who had betrayed them.  For the officers, shop-stewards and anyone else known  or rumoured to have played  anything more than a passive  role in ILA affairs, it was the  blacklist plain and simple.  They were branded as rabble-  rousers and forbidden to be  hired. Some drifted away from  the docks for good; others  toughed it out somehow. The  plight of those on the blacklist can perhaps best be exemplified by a story that Alec  Will tells about his older  brother.  Jim Will had been active in  the ILA and was one of over  two-hundred men on the Federation's books now denied  employment. In common with  most of them, longshoring was  all he knew. He held out as  long as he could but he swallowed his pride and went,  cap in hand, to the office of  Major Crombie, then head of  what purported to be labour-  relations for one of the shipping-concerns. Crombie,  along with many others who  held key-positions with the  Companies, was an ex-Army  man who had spent many  years in India. Reputedly, he  kept a loaded revolver in his  desk in case the natives should  get restless. They were little  different, after all, from the  'wogs' of the Frontier and  must learn to bow to superior  force. He studied the man who  stood awkwardly before him.  "Do you know what the ILA  stands for, Jim?" he asked  innocently.  "International Longshoremen's Association," replied  Jim, unsuspecting.  "Wrong," corrected the  triumphant Major, twisting  the knife with evident relish,  "it means: I Lost All I"  It was the cruel truth, for  Pages  from a Life-Log  Peter Trower  Jim's house and many of his  possessions were already  gone. He walked numbly  from the office like a chastized  schoolboy with Crombie's  smug words ringing in his  ears. Later, the Federation  relented and he was reemployed on the grain-boats  but he never forgot the incident.  The largely-Indian lumber-  gangs, even after throwing in  their lot with the ILA, had  remained, probably for racial  reasons, a sort of separate  group within the main body.  They had not been in favour of  the strike, perhaps sensing a  trap. Now the trap had  closed. The 'bows and arrows'  who, despite their nickname,  included Hawaiians, several  Indians from South America  and some whites, arranged a  meeting with Captain Crawford, the head of Empire  Stevedoring. He agreed to  give them a percentage of the  waterfront work. They comprised about ten gangs. It  was, in essence, a reactivation of the old LHU. They  headquartered in the Seamen's Hall on Powell Street.  Jimmy Greer was their business-agent. Chief Dan  George, now renowned as an  actor, worked with this group  in his younger days as did  Louis Miranda who was to  distinguish himself in his retirement years by compiling a  dictionary of the Squamish  language. The Indian gangs  thus regained their separate  organization which they  would maintain until 1933.  The volume of cargo  passing through the port continued to increase but the bad  conditions persisted. Opinions  vary as to what constituted the  nastiest cargo to handle. Sam  Engler and others opt for  sugar which came in two-  hundred-pound sacks. They  were frequently solidified  and stuck together from engine-room heat and had to be  pried apart with crowbars.  Vic Pollard, another oldtimer,  has a different choice. Wandering the docks broke one  day, he was offered work on a  small ship hauling cement  between Victoria and Vancouver. The pay ��� $75 a  month ��� sounded reasonable  for the time and Vic decided  to give it a try. It was a decision he would regret. The  labour involved the loading  and unloading of fifty pound  sacks at either end of the haul.  In the dank hold of the boat,  Pollard and his companions in  misery toiled like dogs, their  hands, despite canvas gloves,  soon raw and bleeding from  thc abrasive dust; their nostrils clogged, their hair and  clothing impregnated with it.  The ship carried perhaps  5,000 sacks per trip. As it was  a relatively short run, there  was little time to rest between bouts of herculean,  agonizing toil. Vic can't remember how many pairs of  gloves he wore out in the two  nightmare weeks before he  finally said to hell with her  and quit. There were plenty  of unsuspecting men, ready  and willing to take his place.  The loading of wheat began  to form an increasingly-large  part of the longshoremen's  work in the post-strike years.  Special crews were assigned  to the elevators and grain-  boats. The work, whether  sacking-up or trimming (levelling) bulk-cargoes on ships  designed to take them, involved interminable shovelling. The chief problem was  dust, swirling up from the disturbed grain in choking  clouds. The only protection,  before proper respirators were  developed, was a handkerchief tied over the face like  an Arab in a sandstorm for  what little good it did. A guy's  lungs began to feel like a  couple of vacuum-cleaner  bags after a while.  Respiratory diseases were  an almost-inevitable result of  long-term work on the wheat-  gangs and for many, the staff  of life would prove to be the  staff of death. Joe Stouten-  berg, who put in many years  at this branch of longshoring,  cites the number of workmates  cut down before their time by  this complaint. But the ex-  .lamb's Navy Rum.  When you mix it,  you dont lose it.  Lamb's full distinctive  flavour comes smoothly  through your mixer.  In fact, Lamb's unique  quality has made it known  round the world for more  , than 100 years.  perience has neither embittered him nor dampened  his sense of humour. Now  comfortably retired, he still  enjoys a pinch of snuff and a  glass of whiskey and the stories he tells, tend to stress the  lighter side of a tough business ��� sneaking each other  on the streetcars when they  didn't have fare-money to get  to the docks or the way some  of the guys used to tie their  pantlegs at the bottom and fill  them with grain for their  chickens, walking stiff-legged  past the guard at the gate  like a gang of guilty robots.  There was the time a man  called Roulens got promoted  to siderunner. The unaccustomed authority went to his  head and he began throwing  orders around like they were  going out of style. Finally,  one burly docker, his patience  at an end, collared the smaller  man, turned him upsidedown  and stuck his head in the  wheat till he almost suffocated. It put an effective end  to Roulen's brief career as  foreman. He fled from the  ship in shamefaced confusion  and was never seen or heard-  of around the waterfront  again.  Alec Will, who also served  many years on the grain-  gangs, recalls some rougher  aspects of the profession ���  the competition between side-  runners working opposite  sides of a ship who would pit  one crew against the other in  brutal contest. "Shovel  harder, boys!" they'd holler,  "the ship's getting a list!"  One particularly-obnoxious  character Alec worked under,  got so carried-away, he ordered his crew to show up  half an hour early so he could  have them poised with shovels  at the ready like so many  sprinters to start digging on  the dot, when he shouted  "GO!" With no effective  union to protect them, the  men were helpless against  such abuses in the post '23  period. It was like a regression to the way things had  been prior to 1912. A usual  trimming-gang was made up  of twenty-four men but the  sacking-gangs were much  larger. Alec once saw 120  men working two hatches of a  ship, sixty men to a side. They  worked four men to a sack,  one holding, one shovelling,  one tying and one piling.  Union-activity meant instant  dismissal but men of spirit  cannot be stifled for long.  Alec ��� "being of a rebel  mind which"I was or ami" ���  and many others, began  organizing block-committees  in secret, designed to promote  the election of candidates  sympathetic to the working-  man's cause. Will had a partner who was reluctant to risk  his job by participating in  these activities until a scornful siderunner snapping,  "Come on, you bastards!"  in a rather more abusive  manner than usual at the  hard-toiling crew, convinced  him he had nothing to lose  but his chains. To be continued  Ellin "hum s     :  ��� *  Astrology   I  by Use  Film Society  By Allan J.Crane  There were twenty-nine  members at the Kwahtahmoss  Film Society's screening of  Small Change along with  eleven new members, making  a total audience of forty.  The programme was obviously  greatly enjoyed by those  who came. "Delightful"  was a comment made by several viewers, while B.Howard called it "Most enjoyable." Another viewer said:  "I was reminded of Alice  Munro." Another remarked:  ' 'A breath of fresh air ��� more  please!" Another said: "It  was like being a child."  71% of the audience who  completed ballots rated Small  Change "Excellent"; 21%  rated it "Very Good"; and 8%  rated it "Good" giving a  Reaction Index (% Excellent  times 1, plus % Very Good  times .75, plus % Good times  .5) of 90.  The Academy Award winning animation film, The Sand  Castle, was also enjoyed, and  one viewer quipped: "In presenting The Sand Castle,  I thought the National Film  Board showed a lot of grit."  58.5% of the ballots rated the  short film "Excellent",  16.5% "Very Good", and  25% "Good" which gives a  Reaction Index of 77. This  film was shown by the Calgary  Film Society in January,  and their ballots gave a Reaction Index of 78. The feature  which Calgary Film Society  presented with The Sand  Castle was Providence which  the Kwahtahmoss Film Society will be screening at 9:00  p.m. on April 10 at the Twilight Theatre. That film was  rated "Excellent" by 53% of  the Calgary audience, "Very  Good" by 33%, "Good" by  5%, "Fair" by 1% and  "Poor" by 8%, giving a Reaction Index of 80.5%. Notes on  Providence will appear in next  week's newspaper. In the  meantime, here are some of  the comments received by  Calgary Film Society, the  largest in the country, for their  screening of the film: "A  profoundly compassionate and  affirmative film, despite the  pretentious sub-Pinter dialogue and incongruous acting  styles." "Totally absorbing,  Gielgud was superb, unusually stunning." "Rather nasty  in parts, but what a feast of  acting!" "By far the best of  this and many seasons."  This is obviously a film to  look forward to, and I am very  much looking forward to seeing it for a second time. Incidentally, we can consider ourselves fortunate in securing a  booking for Dersu Uzala  last December as the Kwahtahmoss Film Society is the  only one in the country which  has been able to play the film.  Calgary Film Society was unable to book the film because  the distributors are only making it available to commercial  cinemas. Since the Kwahtahmoss Film Society's presentations are shown in a commercial cinema, we were able  to screen this exceptional film.  It is unfortunate that we have  not been able to attract about  twice as many people to our  presentations and that we  must, therefore, cease operations after the April 10 screening of Providence. Please  note that the British Columbia  Attorney-General's Department of Motion Pictures has  classified Providence "Mature" with a rider, "Frequent  Coarse Language".  Pioneer series  The fourth and last of the  Pioneers of the Sunshine  Cout series will be shown on  Cable 10 on Wednesday,  April 11 at 6:00 p.m. on Gibsons Cable, and 7:30 p.m. on  Sechelt Cable ��� dividing line  being Maskell Road.  Arnold (Ted) Winegarden,  who has lived all his life in  Gibson's Landing, and whose  mother Emma was a daughter  of George and Charlotte  Gibsons, founders of the  community in 1886, talks with  "Bert Nelson about an active  and interesting life. Many  changes occurred in his lifetime, not only in the area  but in logging methods, road  construction and particularly  in Port Mellon. Ted Winegarden remembers the mill  when it employed just a handful of men, most of whom  lived in bunkhouses or "com-        muted" in small boats.

Also aluminum  siding, shutters,  soffits, fascia, gutters, railings and  roll-up awnings.  Week commencing: April 2.  General Notes: Mars, planet  of impulse, conjoins Mercury,  planet of communications  indicating a period of hasty  thinking, rash speech and  rushed journeys. Travelling  needs extra care this week.  Next weekend the sociable  Venus opposes the restrictive  Saturn. Staying at home with a  good book will be more satisfying than going out and pretending to have fun. Meanwhile, Mars trines Jupiter  bringing good fortune to those  who took recent risks.  Babies born this week will  be very independent, emotional, fiery and easily upset.  They will need extra love and  understanding. Any health  problems may be linked to the  feet.  ARIES (March 21-Aprll 19)  There are still strange  goings-on behind the scenes.  Looks like local gossip concerns the activities you  thought were secret. Advice  is to halt questionable involvements. Hidden romance now  faces reality. Deceitful love-  affair is exposed. Spotlight  falls on hospitals, institutions,  the sick, lonely and unwanted.  April 8 birthdays experience  major life-upheaval during  the next twelve months. They  must accept change with  courage.  TAURUS (April 20-May 20)  Now's the time to announce  your long-range goals, personal hopes and wishes. However, it's important to consider the priorities and preferences of loved one sharing  your dreams. Those involved  with local groups or committees must expect controversial discussions. Resignations are in the air. As usual,  an old friend will be all talk  and no action.  GEMINI (May 21-June 21)  Once again spotlight is on  career, job, responsibilities  and local reputation. You may  have to make a decision regarding deeper family commitment and personal advancement. Remember to  speak out for what you rightly  deserve. Ignore superiors'  sarcasm and defend achievements.  CANCER (June 22-Jnly 22)  Looks like you're in the  mood for a lively, philosophical discussion. However try  not to rant and rave in public  places. Bashing personal  beliefs into the brains of bystanders brings shame and  doubt. Instead, scour local  library for provocative reading. Long-distance phone call  or letter hints of harsh words  and emotional decisions.  LEO (July 23.Aug.22)  You may blow your top over  loved one's financial irresponsibility. Arguments over  shared expenses will continue  unless you voice serious disapproval. Having to deal with  other people's money or possessions becomes a headache.  If possible postpone meetings  with bankers or money lenders till next week.  VIRGO (Ang.23-Scpt.22)  Loved one or close associate is anxious to discuss  relationship or partnership  issue. Contracts, alliances and  agreements have to be hammered out. Avoiding confrontation prolongs misunderstanding and solves nothing.  Be warned that partner will  have all facts and figures,  past and present, to support  claims. Marital bliss gets even  better once the air is cleared.  LIBRA (Sepl.23-Oct.23)  Accent is on place of daily  duties, service to others,  wages, earnings and rewards.  Co-workers need to debate  procedures, routines, sharing  the load and methods of payment. Airing grievances will  restore happy work-scene atmosphere. Those receiving  medical treatment should ask  doctor for hard facts.  SCORPIO (Oet.24-Nov.22)  Spotlight is on social scene  where harmless conversations could turn into heated  arguments. First-time romantic outings may be disappointing. Looks like one partner will be doing all the talking. It's you, Scorpio, who  should spend a quiet weekend  at home away from noisy  hustle. Speculators, risk takers get green light. Buy a  lottery ticket on the 5th.  SAGITTARIUS (Nov.23  -Dec.21)  Lengthy discussions are  linked to the home, domestic  change, real estate transactions or land deals. Gather family members to voice  opinions on recent proposals.  Others sharing your living  space may question favouritism or unfair share of duties.  Property speculators should  follow hunches on the 5th.  Anyone fixing up the old  homestead should guard  hands against cuts.  CAPRICORN (Dec.22-Jan.19)  Accent is on communicating  your ideas. The mind has  much mental energy and you  now have the courage to say  exactly what you think. Your  reasoning ability and incisive  comments will command the  respect of loved ones. You will  present your position skillfully and clearly. Meanwhile,  take your time on short trips  and journeys. Avoid sarcasm  with brothers, sisters or  neighbours.  AQUARIUS (Jan.20-Feb.18)  Focus is still on personal  finances, possessions and  rights of ownership. Arguments are linked to money,  unpaid debts and equipment  not returned. Have patience  with bank tellers or cashiers.  Tendency is to fuss over slow  service or wrong change.  Postpone purchase of clothing  or luxury goods till next week.  Items bought now will disappoint after unwrapping.  PISCES (Feb.19-Mar.20)  What happened to that irresistible personality?

The narrative traces  their attempts to set up an  imitation of the ordered,  .democratic, civilized society  ... from which they have literal-  V, ly fallen. They begin well,  ',, adopting a democratic deci-  ���"; sion-making process, dividing  '.the labour, building shelters,  v .and providing for the care of  ',5 the "little'uns": the boys  ,.-'; too young to care for them-  '_._, selves. The book becomes a  "chronicle of their failure as  the group' of "hunters"  under the leadership of one of  ''''the boys, begins to assert the  "'power of might over majority.  ''f The group polarizes into two.  ';' factions and rapidly degener-'  ";' ates into superstition and bar-  ';,',' barism. The novel is a pene-  ''e'' trating study of the fragility of  ' '' "civilized" society and the  ''ease with which we revert to  ''���;���'' savagery.  ''���' Much of (folding's writing  ' shares the anthropological  slant of Lord of the Files.  , From a stylistic point of view,  ''��� Lord of die Files is written  ";,'' largely from the "outside";  '''the author merely describes  '''.' what happens to the charac-  '['. ters without directly attempt-  '.';' ing to make the reader partici-  ��� . pate in their inner conscious-  '���'" ness. The reader remains an  '"observer, except for the mo-  f��[ ments when the boys confront  ���,'". "the beast" in the form of the  ;"���' decomposing body of the pilot  f �� of their doomed aircraft.  ������'*���' (This is a nice bit of irony; the  pilot of the flying machine  j.;,whose existence they ac-  ; cepted without question at  ; the beginning of the book has  .,., become the personification of  ',../ their collective superstitious  !,dread, an indicator of how  IV';. far into barbarism they have  ',J, fallen.)  ;;,',.   The Inheritors is, in stylistic terms, a much more ambitious novel. An imaginative  ;.."' fictional portrayal of the life  "r���'.of   our   remote   ancestors,  ' 'roughly   Neanderthal   Man,  what makes the book interes-  . ting is Golding's attempt to  , '.'involve the reader, as much as  L possible, directly in the cons-  ",'ciousness of the characters.  '/.'He forces the, "uder to per-  '.,; ceive the vorld he describes  '".'as the characters themselves  ', prrawe it. His characters are  a smai. sroup, living in a sin-  ' glc cave under an overhang of  ���''���rock. They have knowledge of  '���fire,  but  not  of weapons.  ���.-They do not kill, but live on  roots and  berries  and  occasionally on carrion, though  .,, eating flesh is always associated with death. They have a  .superstitious, almost religious  r -veneration for nature and al-  ,, most no concept of cause and  /.-effect. Life for them is a  *..series of unrelated accidents,  ..fortuitous     or     calamitous.  ��� Interestingly, Golding's con-  ...ception   of   the   conscious-  ���,,-ness of these people is strik-  ������ ingly similar to the state of  mind  which   many  experts  believe reptiles, birds, lower  j; animals, and perhaps even  j'. early man himself may have  >"shared: a kind of moment-to-  ;���*', moment schizophrenia,  ���^reacting to the environment  ���f without understanding or  ;.; being able to anticipate its  9changes. The story itself Is  Reentered on the inevitable  ;', replacement of "the people"  '���;by new people who possess  j;;'|he civilized amenities of  /.weaponry, a penchant for  ���[violence, and a kind of religion  if in which terror and sadism filature prominently.  JSl The three novellas confined in The Scorpion God  IKalso demonstrate Golding's  ,'[^abiding interest  in  anthro-  '.''inlnov.  interest  . ology, but all three show a  fighter more humorous  !;��ouch than Lord of the Files  !��& The Inheritors. The first  ;j.4'tory, from which the title of  j-.ttie book is taken, is set in  i'^ncient Egypt. It concerns the  jajortunes of an unusual func-  i'jionary at the court of one of  ;*')he small petty kingdoms that  ;''ijlung to the banks of the Nile  /.fjefore the unification of  jt-Bgypt. He is referred to only  **s "The Liar" ��nA hlc *'"���  and his func  tion is to entertain Pharoah  with extravagant and unbelievable tales. (The words  "liar" and "poet" are synonymous in a number of ancient  languages.) The Liar's great  misfortune is that in a society ruled entirely by ritual,  in which the present life is  utterly subordinated to the  life after death, he alone does  not want the gift of immortality. When Pharoah dies, he  must be buried with his retainers, including his reluctant Liar. When the Priests  ask him why he refuses the  gift of eternal life, the Liar utters the ultimate heresy:  "Because this one is good  enough I" Escaping at the end  of the story, he advises Pharoah's daughter to kill her  younger brother and choose a  strong man to share her  throne. Then, prophetically,  he points out that she could  easily conquer the small  neighbouring kingdoms,  perhaps even the whole valley.  The second story is called  "Clonk Clonk" and is similar  in many ways to The Inheritors. Again Golding forces  the reader to see the world as  his characters see it, though  this time the immersion in  their consciousness is less  complete. The society he portrays here is a primitive matriarchy in which the male  hunters are a hilarious group;  leaving the women and their  settlement on a hunting foray,  Library  Following is a list of  new books in the Gibsons  Public Library.

School band  You will most likely have  admired Elphinstone School  Band, smart and proud in  their new uniforms ��� uniforms which through circumstances beyond their control,  .because such items are in  demand, finished up costing  more than the original amount  agreed to by the School  Board. At last week's meeting  trustees voted to increase  their share from $607.50  (a 50% share of the original  estimate) to $1,000, which will  leave the Band $1,275 to raise  themselves.  The Board also approved a  three-day concert tour to  schools on Vancouver Island,  the money for which will be  raised by the Band and its  Parent Auxiliary.  they move out across the primordial plain, teasing, gossiping, making up songs about  themselves, changing their  names at a whim, adorning  themselves with stray feathers  and flowers, indulging in  naps and casual homosexual  orgies in the shade of trees  they have climbed for sport,  and occasionally actually  doing a little hunting. The  women have to use guile,  drink and brute force to enlist  their aid in the procreation of  the species. The story is a  witty and fascinating comment  on sexual roles and the organization of society.  The final story, "Envoy  Extraordinary", is, on the  surface, the most humorous  and whimsical of the three.  Set in Imperial Rome, it  concerns the plight of an Emperor when confronted with a  Greek "inventor" who is so  far ahead of his time that his  inventions threaten to wreak  havoc with the comfortable  static and well-ordered life  of the Empire. The Emperor  finally rejects the inventions  and forbids their being built;  the steam powered warship  because it is noisy and dirty,  a high explosive because it is  indiscriminately   murderous,  and a method of printing  books because he has a vision  of the subversive effect of  universal literacy and, of  course, the mountains of  bureaucratic data he will  have to read and keep on file.  The only invention he has any  use for, being a gourmet, is  the pressure cooker. For this,  he rewards the Greek with a  government job, appointing  him "envoy extraordinary"  to a country he has heard of  only in rumour ��� China, the  Coast News, April 3,  very land which would one day  be credited with these "inventions".  All three stories in The  Scorpion God, like The Inheritors and Lord of the Files,  address themselves to the often erratic and unpredictable course of human progress, whether it be spiritual,  technological, or simply evolutionary. In an age in which  archaeology, anthropology,  and psychology have unearthed  such  a  wealth   of  1979 5.  knowledge about the history  and the mind of man, Golding  remains one of the few writers  who has made use of the  material to create compelling  literate speculative fiction....

Representatives of the S.C.R.D. and the Pender  Harbour Aquatic Society will be present to answer  questions. All interested persons welcome to attend.  First in series  Countryside Concerts  Countryside Concerts for  those of you who don't yet  know, is a new series of  classical concerts to be held at  lilphinstonc School, Sundays  at 2:00 p.m. The first concert of the scries will be on  April 8, and will feature  Anthony Elliott, the principal  cellist in ihe Vancouver Symphony Orchestra, and Susan  Hick, our own local pianist  and piano teacher.  Mr. Elliott, born in Rome,  New York, started studying  cello at thc age of sixteen.  Hy thc age of eighteen,  however, he was already  studying music at Indiana  University with Janos Starker,  one of thc world's leading  cellists. Alter graduation Mr.  Elliott studied with Leopold  Tcraspulsky at Aspen, Colorado, where he was the principal cellist in the Aspen  Chamber Orchestra and the  Colorado Philharmonic. By  the age of twenty-one, Mr.  Elliott was playing in the  Toronto Symphony, where he  stayed for three years. He  later became the associate  principal cellist with the Minnesota Orchestra, where he  stayed for five years. Mr.  Elliot has, for the past year,  been the newly appointed  principal cellist of the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra.  Susan Elek has her B.A.  with Music Major from the  University of Western Ontario, and has for the past  two years been a student of  Robert Silverman ��� probably  Canada's leading pianist  today. Miss Elek is still, in  addition to teaching on the  Coast, pursuing her interest  in playing the piano and giving concerts. Last summer she  was given the unique opportunity of playing a concerto  with the Courtenay Youth  Orchestra. She has attended  Courtenay Music  Camp for  two years on a full scholarship to study with Bob Rogers  and Bob Silverman.  The programme for this  concert will include Bach's  Solo Cello Suite #6, in D minor; Beethoven's A major  Cello Sonata; and Brahms'  E minor Cello Sonata.  Refreshments will be served  after the concert.

There  will also be a sharing of  other poets with an emphasis  on the most current trends in  Canadian and American poetry. Some writing will take  place during the workshops  including joint poems written  together by the group. The  more writers learn to analyze  others' poems, the better they  can analyze their own.  The students are asked to  bring plenty of paper, ink,  their own poems (some to be  discussed and others to  read aloud) and works by  other   poets   they   admire.  thc students will have a clearer idea of what is right and  what   is   wrong   with   their   a-. j.   ����� j.

I am given to understand that  a three day stand was tried  but was found to be too cumbersome. I am sure that at  the end of two days, everyone  connected with the show has  had enough and in all proba  bility, the public feels the  same way. So two days seems  about right for what we have  to offer.  After all, it is only a start on  a season of warm spring days,  a long hot summer (hopefully)  and of getting Father up at  the crack of dawn and away to  the fishing grounds for his  share of the bountiful salmon  runs of fall.  This year's Loggers' Sports  will feature fifteen events with  possibly a novice class for  some. To speed up the afternoon show, some elimination  heats will be run off in the  morning.  And so, that is our show for  this year and I am sure you  will find it a winner. The  Timber Days Committee will  be meeting again on April  19, 7:30 p.m. at the municipal  office, Sechelt. Anyone wishing information is welcome to  attend.  Whoopee I And a couple of  Yahoo's! I'm happy to say that  the Old Trail Boss has taken  over one of the most sensitive jobs as Chairman, Parade Committee. He will be  heading up our annual drive  to show off the new breed  who will be building up our  communities of the future;  some of the older breeding  stock who have already contributed are still contributing  to the well being of our  community; and to bring together the larger community  in a spirit of friendship and  competition.  The new Trail Boss? None  other than Homer (Rawhide)  Glass I If you are in the  vicinity of the marshalling  grounds on the morning of  May 21, you will hear old  Rawhide beller, "Round 'em  up and head 'em out!" as  he starts the long string on its  slow and ponderous exodus  along the Sechelt Trail to the  Hackett Stock Yards.  And it is a prodigious  job I Homer got his feet wet  last year by taking control of  the starting gate at the marshalling grounds. The start  was o.k., but at the first turn,  a low wire and a high mast  stalled the procession while  the mast was lowered. Other  minor setbacks along the way  and near the end slowed  things a bit, so Homer is  determined this will not  happen this year. And with a  possible ten extra floats as  a result of Special Events  giving points for group  entries, this could be the most  ambitious parade since the  beginning of Timber Days.  Old Rawhide will be taking  on a crew of Wranglers as  point riders to turn the drive  at appropriate places, so any  of you hands with ten gallon  hats and high heeled boots  that would like to become  Trail Riders of the Sechelt  Plains, give Rawhide a call  at 885-9418.  Welcome to the gang,  Homer, and I hope you get  as much personal satisfaction from your job as I do  Meanwhile, Kathy Acton,  as Chairman of her Special  Events Committee and working with a live wire crew of  helpers, is planning an expanded programme over last  year's activities which were  very successful. She has fired  up the interest and enthusiasm of local businessmen,  service clubs and Chamber of  Commerce in her search for  ten groups of competitors.  Each ��� ->w$ picks a princess  who is then entered as a candidate in the Timber Maid  contest. They score points for  their princesses by earning  points in sports; darts, bridge  and cribbage; ticket sales;  and parade floats. The candidates are presented at the  Timber Days dance on the  evening of May 12, a week  before the main festivities.  Kathy now has tickets for sale  at S5.00 per couple and if  last year was an example,  they won't last long. Better  call her for yours now at 885-  5051.  Most of the service clubs  and other groups have lined  up their stalls and concessions for the two-day celebrations. There are spaces  available for others to set up  booths to sell their products as  long as It is for charity or ���  worthy cause. This it one of  the most popular ways for  many organizations to raise  funds for their favourite  projects and to provide help  and care to under-privileged  or handicapped folks in this  community.  And then, of course, there  is the Loggers' Sportsl The  combining of May Day and  Loggers' Sports seven years  ago was the birth of Timber  Days. There are times when  the weather dampens spirits,  grounds and enthusiasms  that there is a desire to move  loggers sports along a month  or so, but without the loggers,  we wouldn't have a Timber  Days. So in order to keep what  seems to be settling down to a  well organized and well run  two day celebration, they are  staying with us. And I believe  it is to our mutual benefit.  It takes a lot of hard work and  community effort to put to-  .Hey, Hydro.  You. say insulation can pay for itself in time.  But how tm can I pay for it now?  raur  First step in conservation  insulation:  Is insulation all that  important? Look at it  this way. Home heating is  the largest single household consumer of valuable  energy resources. It  accounts for about 65*31 out  of every dollar you spend on y  total home energy expense. So  adequate home insulation can prevent  major money leaks. And that's important.  What about the expense? It isn't  an expense. It's an investment���and a  very good one. And, with the likely  prospect of rising world energy costs  ahead, it will become an even better  investment in the near future.   .How insulation  pays for itself  The many ways insulation pays:  In homes with substandard  insulation (or none) a proper installation iob can pay for itself in as little as  five heating seasons. And that's only  the savings in fuel. There are other  pluses) Like a home that's more  comfortable year-round: warmer in  winter; cooler in summer. More  uniform temperatures with fewer  drafts and no cold spots. Insulation  even makes a home quieter. And  nowadays, when everyone's concerned  about the need for energy efficiency,  insulation can also add to your home's  resale potential.   Aerial thermographic  surveys pinpoint the need:  Once again this  past winter, Hydro  took infra-red  aerial pictures  of thousands  of British  Columbia rooftops.  3& Our objective:  to help homeowners  fight high heating costs.  Individual roof ^^  temperatures       ���    rr--  are recorded  on magnetic  tapes to produce  black-and-white  "thermograms".  These images pinpoint roofs that  are losing heat by  showing them as  whitish or light-grey  areas���indicating  the need for better  insulation. As we did  last year, we'll be displaying the thermograms!  M^cvumfat  in shopping malls in the  areas we've surveyed.  " dro technicians will be on  iand to help homeowners  find out how their insulation  measures up.  Research verifies  insulation value:  ���eadings of the aerial  thermography program are double-  checked by comparing a sampling of the  aerial thermograms of volunteer Hydro  employees' homes with their actual  insulation values. The aerial readings  have proven remarkably accurate.  And more research:  Hydro is also studying energy  and dollar savings in twelve test-homes  located around the province. These  homes have been fitted with newly  recommended insulation levels  in roofs, walls and windows  and their heat savings  monitored on a continuing  basis. Preliminary results  indicate savings in excess  of 20%, over levels usuall;  encountered.   How to find out if  you need insulatio:  Your nearby  B.C. Hydro office can  provide all the free  literature and information you'll need on  the subject of home  insulation. These  easy-to-follow booklets show you the  simple way to check your  insulation and decide on the improvements you require. They also  contain the simple language for  technical specifications, and many  how-to-dorit tips.   Andhow  to get it now  How to get staited:  First, decide if you  want to do the work yourself or have it done. If you  decide to do it yourself,  you'll find it's a pretty  i  straightforward job as  \  long as you follow the  recommendations in  the literature we  provide.  If you prefer  to have the work  done, get competitive  ., , quotes on the job by  /jrurimJJtM^m^ qualified contractors.  dm^ArftA-vMbr       How do you know  who is qualified? Don't hesitate to ask the  contractor for the names of references���  other homeowners for whom he has done  insulating work.  As a final check on the results of  the job, some contractors now provide  ground thermography verification of  wall insulation effectiveness. Ask your  contractor about this.   How to pay  for insulation  Now!  Homeowners throughout British  Columbia have taken advantage of B.C.  Hydro's Insulation Finance Plan to  upgrade insulation or install multiple-  glazed windows. To date, Hydro has  financed over $1,000,000 to homeowners on this plan.  We'll provide up to  $500.00 at just 10% interest,  repayable over 24  months with your  regular utility  bills. To get the  insulation you need,  ��� right now, you need  only qualify with the  following:  ���have a residential utility account  with B.C. Hydro,  apply before March 31,  .0.  ���have a satisfactory  credit rating,  ���own (or be purchasing  by mortgage) a home  already built.  Projects by qualified contractors under the B.C. Hydro  Insulation Finance Plan are subject to  spot checks by Hydro technicians to  ensure the quality and standards of  workmanship.  All insulation and multiple  glazing materials must be to CMHC  standards and applied in accordance  with recognized practice. And all  "do-it-yourselfers" must purchase  enough insulation to achieve the  required performance.

Hockey  A pick up team of Sunshine  Coast hockey players calling  themselves the Elphinstone  Hockey Club came within a  whisker of beating the Powell River Taws in a three-  game hockey series played in  Powell River last weekend.  The local team, comprised of a  group of players who played  as the Peninsula Gales last  season with seven or eight  new players, defeated Powell  River in a thrilling contest  Friday night by a score of  6-5.  Saturday night the Taws  tied the series up with a 7���6  victory. On Sunday afternoon  the local team jumped into a  3���0 lead by the end of the  first period but were down  6���5 at the end of two and  finally lost the game by a score  of 10���8.  It was a very creditable  showing for a group which  hasn't played together at all  this season.

Nick Bergnach put the local  club ahead 1���0 in the first  half on a goal misjudged by  the Squamish goalkeeper.  Joey Sawer converted a penalty shot early in the second  half to make it 2���0 and from  that point on the Wanderers  played strong attacking soccer. Nick Bergnach got his  second goal on a good pass  received from midfielder  Lex Tierney to end the scoring at 3���0.  The win places the Gibsons  Club temporarily into first  place but the club will meet  the previous league leaders,  Sons of Norway, twice over the  next two weekends. The Wanderers travel to Vancouver,  April 1 to meet Sons of Norway on Nanaimo pitch, the  second game of a weekend  double header.  Frank Havies returned to  action in Saturday's game  and played a standout game  on left wing. He set up many  dangerous plays and created  many scoring chances for the  Wanderers' forwards. Standouts for the game were the  entire defense of Corky Bland,  Art Dew and forever talkative Dan P.Baker. The two  players who left their soccer  boots at home ��� Nick Bergnach who borrowed a pair  from a fellow teammate, and  Stevie Miles who purchased a  new pair in Squamish ��� had  excellent games, making their  presence felt with outstanding  hustle.  The Gibsons Club closes out  their soccer season April 7  and April 8 in a doublehea-  der to be played at Langdale at 2:00 p.m. on both  days. The final league standings will be determined from  the results of these two  games, so come out and  support your local soccer  club.  and lose one  .���e '  Wanderers lose 2-0  The Elphinstone Wanderers took on the Sons of Norway and came away on the  wrong end of a 2���0 score.  The Sons of Norway are now  in first place by one point,  ahead of the Wanderers,  with Belfast United one point  behind. Each of the top three  teams has two games remaining. The Wanderers play  Sons of Norway on Sunday at  Langdale April 8 and tackle  Shamrock Labatts at Langdale April 7. Both games  start at 2:00 p.m.  The refereeing was atrocious and both teams have  protested against the officia  ting. Hopefully, competent  officials will be supplied by  the Referees Association for  next weekend's crucial remaining two matches.  The first half was all  Elphinstone Wanderers but  the local team was unable to  find the net. Sons of Norway  scored their first tally on a  penalty shot awarded by the  referee on a very dubious  call. The second goal was  scored on an offside play and  cut short any possible comeback by the Wanderers.  Come out and support your  local soccer club; we need  you and appreciate your  support.

She approached  Mr. Winn relative to purchasing her grocery stock and offered to relinquish her position as postmistress. Her  resignation was tendered  February 1,1915, having held  that position since October 1,  1906. William W.Winn became the official successor on  April 1, 1915, at which time  that office occupied a small  corner section within his  general store.  In 1919 William W.Winn  sold his store business to  newcomers, the Carter  brothers, They rented the  building which provided  living accommodation upstairs. The Winns, on the  other hand, moved into their  cottage at the upper end of  the property.  The transaction of this business did not, however, include the post office. Winn  continued to render postal  service from the store; but  meanwhile, his vacant building at the wharf entrance was  subjected to some renovations  at front section only. Provision was made for the new  location of the Gibson's Landing post office and telegraph  booth. With a short counter as  a division, Mrs. Winn had  established an area for sale  of bottled soft drinks, candy  bars, cigarettes and ice cream  fountain service.  The one-time Houghton  store was slowly being introduced to various types of  service. There were occasions  when lantern slides were  shown; and the Winns  were the first to introduce  silent movies locally. Son  Harry operated the projector  while father would occasionally  turn the handle of his  gramaphone in readiness to  render soft music in accompaniment. Charlie Chaplin  was always a feature character. On occasions a series  was the attraction wherein  each week there was a continuation ��� entry fee, adults  25*���children, 10*.  The hall proved to be rather  small for some events, such as  dancing. Approximately  twenty-five feet were added to  its width as an incentive to  greater patronage. Coleman  gasoline lamps, operated by  white gasoline and air, supplied the lighting.  During winter months there  were weekly whist drives. In  the autumn of 1922 a local  group of men of mixed ages  organized as the Athletic  Club, sponsoring physical  entertainment. It operated on  Friday evenings, except during summer months, and continued for a period of two  years in the Winn Hall.  It may be mentioned at this  time that a new Marconi  radio, model three, consisting of three sections, and  costing $300, was purchased  by W.W.Winn and placed in  his hall. It operated with wet  storage batteries, but reception was extremely limited.  It was not equipped to handle  speakers. One had to resort to  earphones. It actually was a  first for Gibson's Landing.  One section of this radio is  now held in possession by  Don Hauka.  A further measure of entertainment in the Winn  Hall was that of vaudeville  shows, sponsored by local  talent. In later years, vaudeville groups travelling the  coast line to Alaska by motor  launch, stopped off at Gibson's Landing and presented  their cast in the Winn Hall.  One group was called "The  Roamers". On occasion, during winter months, concerts  Slings and arrows(cont'd)  coffee in the Empress Library  before returning to your  sleeping kids.

First, if you haven't  been to Victoria in the past  ten years, remember, it's a  big city now, more crowded,  more traffic, more sophisticated than you may think.  If you don't like those suggested activities, there are,  always the Parliament Buildings, the Wax Museum,  afternoon tea in the Empress  Lounge, any number of book  shops and art galleries;  just strolling and browsing in  a very pretty, bright and open  city and don't forget Miniature World.  As far as advice is concerned, wear something  warm. Even though Victoria is  a lot drier than here, it tends  to be windy and cool in the  spring time. The final piece of  advice is for everybody except Father.  Don't forget that this is  the old man's vacation, too.  He is not there just for your  comfort, well being and convenience. Make sure he gets  plenty of time on his own  with as few deadlines and time  restrictions as possible. If  he wants to watch the basketball game on T.V., make sure  he is comfortable, has plenty  to eat and drink, then get  lost for a couple of hours.

On one instance, Mr. Winn brought in  a Hawaiian orchestra.  And something quite different, after the fashion of a  bingo game, one played to  win a turkey for Christmas.  The author wishes to direct  the reader's attention to the  lefthand lower corner of the  souvenir page of Peninsula  Times, respecting Gibsons  Golden Anniversary, and  dated February 28. The  inscriptions shown, and citing  no fog, mosquitoes, etc.,  represented printing on souvenir envelopes intended for  tourist trade. They were sponsored by the Gibson's Landing  and District Improvement  Association, and placed on  the counter of the Winn post  office for the years 1923-24.  During 1923, the Harmony  Club was organized in the  Winn Hall. Practises were  held once weekly. The club  rendered instruction in voice  culture and musical instruments. Mrs. William Reilly  of Hopkins Landing, a talented pianist, gave instruction  in singing, while Mr. E.J.  Byfield, gifted in use of several instruments.  May the public be informed  that it was in this same hall  that the foundation was laid  to incorporate as a municipality, and that under the  leadership of William W.Winn  post master, and indeed, a  sincere, dedicated community-minded individual,  this undertaking became a  reality. Admittedly, there was  evidence of strong, harsh  opposition; nevertheless, by  the indulgence of a mere  few individuals, application  to become incorporated was  duly accepted in accordance  with the 'Village Municipalities Act' as of March 4, 1929,  and to be hereafter known as  "The Corporation of the  Village of Gibson's Landing".  Those persons tentatively  appointed as Commissioners  were the following: Mrs.  Flora Jack, Sidney A.Holland, and William W.Winn.  Following a second marriage by William W.Winn,  the earlier addition to this  hall building was converted to  living quarters. The post  office continued to function,  but the main portion of the  original building ceased  in any public functions.  Winn died in 1937 and was  interred in Mount Elphinstone  Cemetery  i2L  mnry W. Block  "You deal  personally  with the  specialist  preparing your  income tax return'.'

The Sunshine  Second Front Page  Concern with safeguards  Sechelt high density housing proposed  A considerable number of  questions were forthcoming  at the Public Hearing in  Sechelt on March 26, when the  rezoning application to provide higher density housing  for a portion of Block 10 lying north of Anchor and east  of Marine Way was brought  forward. Village Planner Doug  Roy told the meeting that the  history of this proposal goes  back to 1975 when Halfmoon  Bay Developers first proposed townhouses for this  area. An adjoining portion of  Lot 18 is also under considera  tion for this type of development but this was inadvertently excluded from the present application. Mr. Roy told  the meeting that the area in  question was one which had  been designated in the Community Plan for higher density housing, an R3 zoning  which could be townhouses  for single or multiple family  dwellings. Mr. Roy went on to  explain to the assembly that  single family dwellings required roughly 7,500 square  feet per unit as against about  2,700 square feet per dwelling  )  In��  ct^fSl'  April 7th and 8th   , f      v ^w'  V  'Sat.andSun., _ w  (cancelled Easter weekend) "^-^  *Sat. and Sun., April 21st and 22nd )  *Sat. only, April 28th /  At 7 p.m. in the Gibsons Elementary Gym  You can still register at TJ's Sound, Sunnycrest Mall.

"In today's world,"  he said, "this has to be considered medium density."  Mr. Mike Ryan asked if  there was a maximum density  per site area, and Mr. Roy  replied that there was no  maximum set out in the Bylaw.  Rene McCall asked what the  developer was going to do  about the paving of roads in  the event that the rezoning  application is granted. He was  assured that Marine View  Road would be paved to highway standards. Glen McCall  also asked questions with  regard to street access.  Mr. Ted Osborne said that  he had been one of the first to  clear this property and that  he had given the land which  is now the wharf to the Village. He was, he said, a friend  of Norm Watson who, along  with Len Van Egmond, is  a principal in the proposed  development. This land, he  said, is expensive to develop,  and there is no way in which a  developer could get his money  back if the land were to be  developed on the basis of  single family sites. "I don't  like to change horses in midstream," he said, but he had,  he said, been talking to Norm  Watson and he thought the  proposed rezoning was the  only way in which maximum  advantage could be taken of  this land and it's view around  Porpoise Bay. Norm's proposal doesn't take in all of  nw-^-\wm-mwmmmAW-~  Lot 10 but it included the  paving of part of Block 11.  "We all want to see Trail  Avenue paved," said Osborne.  Mr. Ken Corbin asked:  "How soon can we expect this  road to be paved?" "I can't  answer your question," responded Chairman MacDonald. "He'll have to put in  the road before he can start  his development." He also  said that the initial proposal included the paving of  all of Marine View Road  including that part which is  not on Lot 10. "Pave the road  first, and then let's talk about  Lot 10," said Ken Corbin.  The part of Lot 10 proposed  for high density housing development is of horseshoe  shape, It is reminiscent of  Gibsons Bluff, and it commands spectacular views of  Porpoise Bay and Sechelt  Inlet. The area involved encompasses approximately  ten acres, and the number of  units to be constructed could  be in the order of 150. No  plans have been submitted  as yet, and both Norm Watson and Len Van Egmond  were away from the area  during the latter part of the  week when the Coast News  endeavoured to contact them.  Neither was at the Public  Hearing.  The Coast News visited  three residents of Anchor  Road who wish to remain  anonymous.

The essence of Chinese cookery lies in the traditional insistence that food  must have good flavour, however humble and simple the ingredients. Their  diet Is comprised principally of foods of plant origin, supplemented by small  amounts of meat.  Chinese dishes almost always consist of a mixture of foodstuffs. Vegetables and meat are prepared In a small amount of fat. Heated to a high  temperature, the oil quickly sears the meat to preserve flavour, Juice, and  tenderness, as well as colour and texture of the vegetables.  Cutting and preparation of Ingredients; quick, intense heat; and a uhique  method of constant stirring, comprise the secret.  OIL  Chinese use the oils of peanuts, soy beans, vegetable seeds, cotton seeds,  and sesame seeds, among various others. Only the lard of pork, chicken,  and duck are used. If you see any Chinese recipe calling for butter you can  be sure it is a new Invention by someone.  Peanut oil is the best as it has less smell than the others. Sesame oil Is  different ��� it is expected to retain Its aroma. In the United States, be care-1  when buying oil and read the fine print on the  label. You may find "cotton seed oil" under the  name of vegetable oil. You may like the cotton  seed oil but I reject It because of Its smell.  Hot oil will burn you easily when your hands  are dry.

They are  concerned with safeguards,  and this was a feeling often  voiced at the Public Hearing.  They felt that the history of  development in Sechelt was  not too salutary and that  it sometimes seemed that the  developers were leading the  Village Council rather than the  reverse. Trail Bay was mentioned, as it was on two or  three occasions at the meeting, and the unpaved portion  of this road remains to try  the suspensions of any motor  vehicles which use it, a mute  testimony to the fears expressed over new developments. The matter of Glenniont Holdings' rubber bond  is also fresh in residents'  memories. It is to be hoped  that the lively public interest  evinced by the residents of  Sechelt will guarantee that  there will be no repetitions  of past mistakes.

District Superintendent John  Denley and Supervisor of  Instruction John Nicholson  together with some of the District's principals were at the  Annual General meeting of  the British Columbia Teachers' Federation at the Bay-  shroe Inn in Vancouver earlier this week to interview  a selected list of applicants.  Mr. Denley told the Coast  News that between forty and  fifty people were interviewed  and many excellent teachers  had been seen. Not many  vacancies, he said, were anticipated, and he agreed that  the high rate of unemployment in the profession created  a buyers' market for School  Boards wishing to hire teachers.  Mr. Denley said that he  would be meeting with all of  the District's principals during  April to discuss enrollment  projections and anticipated  staffing needs.

The finest quality is obtained by allowing at  least three feet from plant to  plant and at least four feet between the rows. A more usual  distance, and one which is  quite satisfactory for all ordinary purposes, is to allow  about 18 inches between the  plants and three feet between  the rows.  BEANS  Broad ��� Almost any kind of  soil is suitable, but a certain  amount of moisture is necessary. Propagated from seed  sown in January. Frequent  hoeing is advisable. It is a  hardy plant which adapts  itself to circumstances.  Dwarf and Kidney ��� These  varieties like a rather light  soil, and are propagated from  seed sown in the open during  April. Plenty of manure is  necessary if good results are  to be obtained.  Runner Beans ��� These beans  are easily grown in any good  garden soil. They are propagated from seed sown in drills  about three inches deep. Deep  digging and manure are necessary to obtain good results.  BEETS  Beets like a rather light sandy  soil, but will grow in ordinary  soil. Deep digging is very  necessary to get good results  with this vegetable. Propagated by seed sown about the  1st of May and a little later for  heavy soils, they should be  planted about one inch deep  allowing 15 to 18 inches between the rows and about four  to six inches apart.  BROCCOLI  A heavy loam with a proportion of clay in it is the most  suitable for this vegetable.  Seeds may be started in the  early Spring in the house or in  cold frames or outside in shallow drills during the latter  part of April or early Mayi  seedlings should be thinned  out.  BRUSSELS SPROUTS  Brussels Sprouts like a firm  rich soil that has been deeply  dug and well worked. This  seed needs a long period of  growth to mature fully. The  best process is to plant the  seeds in the house or cold  frame during February and  transplant to their permanent  positions during May. The  sprouts as they ripen should  be cut off with a sharp knife  and not broken off as is so  often done.  CABBAGE  Cabbbage likes a moist loam  which is not too light, but will  grow in almost any garden  soil. Plant indoors or in cold  frames during February and  transplant to the garden  during April and May. Plant  I1/; feet apart allowing 2 to  2'/i feet between the rows.  CARROTS  This vegetable is fairly hardy  and will withstand light  freezes but not severe ones.  The first planting may be  made very early in the Spring.  They like a rich, sandy, well  fertilized soil. When storing  dig up the carrots, twist off  the tops, leaving an inch of  stem attached to the root.  They will store well in sandboxes, in the outdoor storage  pit, or in the cellar where the  humidity is high and the temperature cold.  CAULIFLOWER  Cauliflower will thrive on most  soils if well drained; deep digging is also essential. Start  the seed indoors or cold frame  during February. Cover the  seed about '/i-inch, thin out  and transplant to the garden  in April or May. They require  ample water during the period  of growth and during the dry  weather.  CELERY  A well-drained soil, deep and  rich and not too light, is most  suitable for this crop, especially if fairly moist. Celery is  grown from seed sown on a  hot-bed in February for early  use and in March for the main  crop. When the plants show  their rough leaves transplant  to the garden. Young celery  plants need regular watering,  as once they stop growing,  even for a short time, they  become almost useless from  the point of view of quality.  They need earthing up as  soon as the plants are a foot  Posh Plant Food     $5.55 401b.

CORN  If garden space is available,  corn should be planted successively so that a continuous supply may be secured.  A well-fertilized soil is required. Corn may be planted  either in hills or in rows, but  should be situated where a  constant supply of water can  be applied.  CRESS  Cress is a hardy annual. Plant  early in the Spring and at  intervals of ten days apart  to assure succession of crops.  Fertile soils kept moist will  assure a continuous rapid  plant growth. Cut for salads  when about two inches high.  EGGPLANT  The Egg Plant is one of the  long-season tender crops, with  cultural conditions similar to  those of the tomato. Seed  should be sown either indoors,  greenhouse or cold frame.  When three or four inches  high, transplant them outside  providing all danger of frost  is past.  KOHLRABI  A rich soil is needed, and the  seed is sown during March in  drills from 12 to 18 inches  apart*, when the plants are  large enough, thin out to  about six inches apart. Hoe  frequently and cultivate the  same as turnips.  LEEKS  Leeks do well in almost any  kind of soil and are so hardy  that they will stand the winter  without harm. Soil should be  well drained and well manured. Seed should be sown in  March in rows about eighteen  inches apart; when the plants  are Ave to six inches high  thin out to about six inches.  Stems need covering with soil  about eight inches.  LETTUCE  A light loam of a sandy nature  is the best for this vegetable,  but it can be grown in almost  any kind if properly cared for.  Seed can be sown during  March and April outside.  The seedlings should be trans-'  planted when about three  inches high or thinned out  earlier than this. Lettuce may  also be forced by sowing in  frames. Water should be  freely given when the weather  is dry.  ONIONS  When seed is sown they  should be planted early in the  Spring even before the danger  of late frosts is over. The seed  will soon start growing and  should be kept continuously  growing until midsummer  when maturity usually occurs.  To grow a large well-developed onion, the plants should  not stand too thickly in the  row. However, when there is  an abundance of moisture and  plant nutrients in the soil,  even thick plantings will  mature to a good size. When  the foliage is withered and  the necks shrivelled, pull the  onions, free them of soil and  place in an airy situation to  dry. As cold weather approaches take them to the storage  cellar, which should be dry  and cold and dark.  PEAS  Do not sow peas in single  rows but stagger the seeds.  This  system   makes   strong  looking rows and yet allows  plenty of room for growing.  The most important disease of  peas is root rot which may be  held under control by providing a well-drained soil and  supplying the plants with an  abundance of fertilizer applied along the rows and thoroughly raked into the soil  when the plants are from 5  to 6 inches tall.  RADISH  A light rich soil is best for  these. Seed is sown from February onwards, often between  other crops. Sow at intervals of ten to fourteen days to  assure succession of crops.  SPINACH  An annual which may be fairly easily grown, but it does not  like dry soil. A sunny position  is desirable and the seed  should be sown in March, and  if desirable at intervals until  the end of June.  TOMATO  Tomatoes will respond to  good care and cultivation.  They require a fertile, well-  drained soil containing an  abundance of plant nutrients,  for best developments. It is  strong feeding plant and  amount of garden space to  produce a good crop, the  value of the crop and the  heavy yield which may be  secured, place it first rank as a  crop for the home garden.  In the late fall just before the  first killing frost, the green  tomatoes may be gathered.  The best way to ripen a green  tomato is to place it in a  Gibsons Ready Mix  886-9412  ���Drainrock  "Road Mulch  ���Sand 'Washed Rock  ���Fill (Navy Jack)  Monday���Friday  8a.m.���5 p.m.  '.v.v.v.y.v.w.  QuQlitu Farm & Garden Supply Ltd.  /^  It's Planting Time  temperature of about 65  degrees (F) and preferably in  the dark; they take from two  to three weeks to ripen.  TURNIPS  For the Spring crop sow the  seeds as early in the Spring as  possible, planting thinly.  Do not cover turnip seed with  more than a quarter inch of  soil. When the plants are from  two to three inches above the  ground, they should be  thinned out from five to six  inches apart in the row, so  they do not crowd each other.  For the late crop the seed  should be sown at least seventy days before early freezes  occur in the Fall. Seedlings  and cultural practices are  same as those for the Spring  crop.  Good  gardening  The foundation of success in  he garden is well-prepared  soil in a fairly sunny location. To build on this foundation requires the development  of gardening skills and a sen-  will respond to applications of sitivity to the needs of growing  manure   and   fertilizer.   Al-  plants. This awareness of the  though   it   requires   a   fair  working   of   plants   doesn't  mean   that   you   have   to  talk to them; plants are poor  conversationalists and I am  not convinced that they even  really listen  to  anything  I  tell them.  It is necessary, however, to  spend a good deal of time  looking at plants. This is no  great hardship, and, to the  uninitiated, may even appear  as idleness. A bench, a chair,  or an apple crate placed in  some strategic vantage point  is a good place to sit and survey the garden, making mental notes of what is about  big enough to need thinning,  what rows will be due for harvest soon, and a myriad of  other observations necessary  for planning upcoming garden activities. There is another way of looking at plants  too: on hands and knees, pull  leaves back to see how they  grow, look at their undersides to see if anything's  chewing on them, observe  how tomato plants form foliage branches and fruiting  branches so you'll know which  ones to prune. Both the overall view of the garden and its  needs and the close-up inspection of individual plants  are a necessity to the immediate success of this year's  garden and to the long-range  development of your own  gardening skills.

Odds'n Ends  It'll be handy when the  Bird Club sets up the phone  list for people to pass on  sightings. There are a lot of  new birds moving into the  area. The most unusual has  been the three independent  sightings I've heard of, of  first time I've heard of them  around here.  Down at Porpoise Bay a  while back, I was watching a  scoter feeding in the shallows.  It dived down and came up  with what looked like a large  clam, and swallowed it whole.  I could hardly believe what I  was seeing, so I got out my  binoculars. Sure enough down  he went again and came up  with another one about the  same size as his head, sat  with it in his beak for a few  seconds, then down it went to  follow the first...I knew that  birds have strong constitu-  I only hope that they didn't  clam up on him.

By the sound of things  we're going to have to move to  a larger room. People keep  expressing interest in coming,  and the last meeting was a  full house.  The guest speaker this time  will be Dr. Ken Hall; he's  a research biologist at the  Westwater Research Institute,  and has made a two year study  of life in the Fraser River Estuary.  There's going to be a slide  show on the flora, fauna,  and bird life in the North  American deserts. Part of it  is going to be on Eastern  Washington, where one of  the future field trips is  planned for.  Wildlife meeting  Fix i what I hear the subject of this week's meeting is  going to be nuclear energy.  This is timely, considering  what's happening in Pennsylvania.  I'm told that there will be a  movie. I was going to give  more information on it but was  unable to get a hold of George  Ruggles for more details.  Smart Eagle  I was talking with Dale and  Sue, who fish prawns out of  Gibsons on the Five Spot.  Here's their story.  They were off the Paisley  Island group fishing, a seagull  came down to pick up a free  cod, bobbing belly up not too  far away. In turn a watching  eagle saw a chance to have  dinner and dive-bombed the  gull. The gull was braver  than he was sensible and refused to let go his fish, so  became the target of repeated  aerial attacks, each one closer  to the water. Finally the eagle  plummeted down on it bodily,  and they both ended up in  the drink.  Eagles are good swimmers,  By Allan J.Crane  An incident occurred on  December 23 last year on  Garden Bay Road when a  single man left a pre-Christ-  mas party which others were  leaving to join families,  The man decided to go  home to play some records on  his stereo. When he got to  his home, there was a note  from the people from whom  he had bought the stereo  equipment informing Mm  that they had "repossessed"  the equipment and saying that  he could have it back when he  paid the money owing. The  man became very upset oyer  this and set out for the nearby  home of the people from  whom he had obtained the  stereo. Neighbours noticed  that he was carrying a rifle,  and they telephoned people  who lived near the house to  which the stereo had been  removed since there was no  telephone there. The people  phoned, however, telephoned  the police, and when the man  neared the residence which  now housed the stereo, he was  met by Police Constable  Hansen and Auxiliary Constable Gamble.  The man pointed his loaded  30-30 rifle at the Constable  and spoke threateningly.  To his great credit, Constable  Hansen remained calm and  collected in this difficult situation, and the man put down  his gun and agreed to talk  to the police officers.  The matter was settled in  Sechelt County Court recently  when Judge Johnson commended Probation Officer  Neil McKenzie on his plea  to keep the man, a reformed  heroin addict for over five  years, out of jail and a probable return to crime. The man  was given a suspended sentence of two years with  200 hours community work  and instructed to report to  the Probation Officer during  the term of the suspended  sentence. He was also prohibited from possessing a  firearm.  The fortunate outcome to  this incident must be credited  to Constable Hansen (the  auxiliary constable was unarmed) who had at the time  been a member of the R.C.M.P. for less than a year. Had  it not been for the restraint  exercised by this officer, an  ugly shoot-out would certainly  have ensued, and a funeral  service rather than a court  case would have been the  likely outcome. Senior Detachment officers were greatly impressed with the Constable's handling of this difficult situation. ,  The application from Cameo  Industries for rezoning to a  new designation, Tourist  Commercial and Accommodation, was made with regard  to property continguous to  the proposed development on  Lot 10. The legal description  is Block J, of Block 11, District Lot 303 and 304, and a  part of Parcel E (explanatory  plan 5677) is also involved.  The land under discussion is  chiefly that land where Tyee  Airways presently base their  operations, adjacent to the  Sechelt Marsh.  Mr. Roy informed the public meeting in Sechelt on  March 26 that the developer  envisaged 150 units owned by  strata title which could be  used by tourists when not in  use by the owners who would  then lease them back to the  company. Some permanent  residences would be considered essential to make the  operation viable, and Mr.  Roy said there may be a tourist-related facility such as a  tackle shop but no banks or  malls. An unidentified questioner asked what foreshore  development would be entailed, and Mr. Roy told the  questioner that the proposal  included only existing foreshore. He then showed a plan  to those present in the public  gallery which represented  a three-story building called a  "boatel". Bill Moore asked  how the proposed development would effect boat  launching. Mr. Roy said that  this was a problem to be resolved with the developer, and  that the problem was one of  parking. The problem had, he  said, been pointed out to the  developer. Ted Osborne  said that the buildings will  have their own parking. Pre  sent parking, he said, will not  be affected, and more parking  could, if necessary, be developed on the property.  The Coast News spoke to  Al Campbell of Tyee Airways. "Hank [Hall] hasn't  said anything to me," he said.  "Nothing's going to happen  overnight." He told the Coast  News that Tyee's maintenance  facility was already on the east  side of Porpoise Bay. Some  dredging would have to be  done, he said, in order to relocate the floats, but he did  not foresee any insuperable  difficulties.

The regulatory provisions of this By-law have been  drawn up to conform as closely as possible with the  policies contained in the Official Community Plan for  Gambier Island adopted by By-law No. 110 of the  Sunshine Coast Regional District in 1977. The Bylaw establishes both provisions of general applicability and provisions and regulations for each of the  eight (8) zones established by the By-law.  The General provision section of the proposed  By-law includes regulations and requirements for  the issuance of Development Permits and Home Occupations, and building setbacks from streams and  the sea.  The zones may be summarized as follows:  Settlement (S) Zone  Allows for Single Famlly residential, Public service,  Parks, Logging and Timber removal, and Home  Occupation use of a parcel of land in this zone.

A copy of the proposed By-law will be posted for  review at any hour, day or evening, at the Entrance  Door to the Legion Hall, Gambier Island.

M.LEE,  ADMINISTRATIVE OFFICER  World Youth report  By KeUy Malngot  Our Canada World Youth  team, made up of sixty-four  people, sixteen of whom lived  in Gibsons from September to  December, was ready to begin  the second phase of the programme in Indonesia after  our three and one-half successful months in Canada.  We arrived in Indonesia  on December 21, after a  smooth forty-hour flight.  Wc stayed in Jakarta for  six days, two of which we  spent with rich foster-families  to get an idea of what it was  like living with Muslim  families, though some of them  WANTED  Used Furniture  or What Have You  AL'S  USED FURNITURE  WE BUY BEER  BOTTLES  Facts About  FUNERALS  * The local funeral home  charges no fee for pre-arranging  and recording your funeral Instructions.

A. Devlin  owner-manager  Devlin Funeral Home  1665 Seaview Rd.,  Gibsons     886-9551  were pretty rich and westernized.  Another motive for our stay  must have been to show us the  vast differences between the  rich families of Jakarta and  the poor of our village. It  was all very valuable, though  somewhat shocking.  Jakarta is an unbelievably  large, hot, crowded, pulsating city. I would love to be  able to walk along its streets,  unnoticed, investigating every  new thing, talking to people.  It's hard because Westerners  are always noticedl  We left Jakarta on December 27, two groups flying to  West Sumatra; our group and  another flying to Medan, the  capital of North Sumatra. We  stayed in Medan for three  days to rest and get ready for  going into our villages. We  used that time to try out our  limited knowledge of the Indonesian language on unsuspecting vendors.  We arrived in our village,  Paya Bakung, on December  31. It is half an hour from the  capital city; population  approximately 3,000. We were  welcomed like royalty with  welcoming dances and speeches and tons of fruit and  drinks. The whole village must  have turned out. There were  kids climbing the walls of the  village hall to get a look at us.  They've never seen so many  Westerners together at one  time before I  We spent two beautiful  months in our village. We all  had foster-families again and  lived with our same counterparts ��� we had no group  living. We all lived comfortably and didn't do without  much. Personally, I didn't  miss any of the 'luxuries' I  was so used to at home in  Canada.  We worked with three committees during our stay in the  village and each one had a  different responsibility. They  planned our schedule for us,  which was completely different from Canada, where we  planned our own. We had no  say and found it hard to accept the schedules we didn't  agree with. That was another  aspect of the Indonesian  culture we had to adjust to.  We had outings scheduled  at least once a week for recreation. We enjoyed them but  felt guilty at the same time,  since not too many of the  villagers ever had the chance  HARRISON'S APPLIANCE  Sales and Service  ��� All Warranty Service  f 6 We Take Trade-ins  ���Will Not Be Undersold on the Peninsula  886-9959  Pratt Road, Gibsons  TOP OF THE LINE BRANDS  Church Services  Roman Catholic Services  Rev T.NIcholson.

We had a  great time. Most of our work  projects were with the villagers or school children.  We played sports with the  villagers (volleyball, soccer,  ping pong, badminton),  taught them English, sang  with them, saw their traditional dances and dramas,  etc. Our work projects consisted of building bamboo  fences in schoolyards, helping  to build two bridges and repair the village hall, clearing irrigation rivers in the rice  fields, cleaning and leveling  dirt roads and teaching English in the schools. We only  worked outdoors about two  hours each day because the  heat was unbearable.  We picked up quite a bit  of the language. They loved to  hear us speak Indonesian,  were patient, and helped us  learn. They even taught us  some Javanese dialect! They  laughed at us a lot, too,  but it was with love. We became very close to our families and friends; they are such  friendly and warm people.  It was hard sometimes,  listening to their ideas and  impressions of Canada. They  would always tell us how rich  Canada is and how much  money we have. They would  ask how many cars we owned,  how many houses, etc. That  is when we realized how rich  we Canadians are ��� even the  poorest of us, compared to  most Indonesians ��� and how  much we take for granted.  We saw a lot of poverty and  malnutrition, corruption and  uneven distribution of the  wealth. Looking at Indonesia gave us a view of the  whole world, on a smaller  scale. There was malnutrition evident in our village, in the young children ���  much poverty all over. We  also saw many wealthy fami-  Canada World Youth students are greeted upon their arrival In Indonesia.

We  also were affected by the corruption in the government in  our work project.  Indonesia is a very wealthy  country in natural resources  but it is just beginning to  develop. Depending on one's  definition of development, it  may grow for the better or  the worst.  The last week in our village was very hectic. We had  many farewell parties and visits. We put on a culture show  for the village and had a big  farewell ceremony at the village hall, lt was very hard for  us to leave Paya Bakung, our  village. The last day, we waited eight hours for our bus  to arrive. We headed for Lake  Toba and met the other three  groups there. Two days later,  our group and one other suffered a twenty-five hour bus  ride to West Sumatra over  very bumpy roads. Quite an  experience! We left Sumatra  March 9 for Jakarta. After  two days in Jakarta, we took a  twelve hour train ride to  Yogyakarta, the Batik capital  of the world, also renowned  for its leather and silver. We  stayed there for four days, had  tours and saw the famous  Borobudin temple. We stayed  in Jakarta for another two  days and left March 20.  By then, we were all physically and emotionally exhausted.  Most of us would have stayed  in Indonesia longer if we could  have. It was very hard to  leave, after being with our  counterparts for seven  months, learning how to  live and learn together,  sharing every experience.  The  seven  month  period  was  a  very   intense  learn  ing experience. We learned  about ourselves, cultures,  our country and theirs,  development and so much  more. It wasn't all roses, but  it was an educational and  rewarding experience, one of  the best of our lives.  There is so much more to  be said....  The programme is officially over on March 25, after our  few days of debriefing at  Camp Elphinstone. Now, we  have parted from our Canadian friends, too, and we will  each continue to grow in our  own separate ways.  Papermaking course  On April 7, Saturday,  10 a.m.���5 p.m., Ryan Mur-  raygreen will give a workshop  on Papermaking, either in  Elphinstone or in Chatelech.  The class will enable the  student to make paper sheets  and then to have fun with  paper. First the student will  make all the necessary equipment: screens, frames, vats,  so the student will take home  a small homemade paper mill.  Then there will be experiments with paper as an art  form: paper casting, sculpture and combining paper with  other art forms. This class  will interest anyone involved  with painting, printmaking  and anyone interested in  making and using unique  papers.  Each student should bring  8' of Txl* fir or cedar and  2'x2' screen ��� flyscreen or  finer, old wool blanket and  any kind of paper to re-cycle.

T.M.Forsyth,  District Highways Manager  Dated at Gibsons, B.C.  this 30th day of March, 1979  Powerline report  Coast News, April 3,1979  By Kelly Henry  On Saturday members of  B.C.Hydro, Environmental  Land Use Committee and  groups from Pender, Texada,  Nelson and Cape Cockburn  came to discuss the proposed  Cheekeye-Dunsmuir transmission line.  Hydro is putting the line  through to allow for extra  power to Vancouver Island for  future use. The meeting was  called to discuss problems in  the "bulge area", of Cape  Cockburn to the Malaspina  Substation. Many, many  problems are created because  of the line. It seems that no  matter what, we will get the  line. Although, Don Lockstead said he wanted to place  a two-year moratorium on  the line, until further study  can be completed.  Nobody wants the powerline  through their property or their  lives. But, we must keep in  mind that our powjr crosses  other people's backyards,  too. One of the most pertinent concerns is that of electromagnetic radiation of the  lines. Studies in other countries state exposure can have  effects on the central nervous system. Some of the proposed routes would be very  close to wildlife, fish and  humans. The next question is  care of the lines. Will chemical  spraying be done? The lines  run near to watersheds of  Sakinaw and West Lakes.  Hydro answered by saying it  didn't know if chemical sprays  will be permissable when the  line is completed.  Thirdly, places like Agamemnon Channel, where the  lines will be over the water,  will create a hazard to planes.

The extra worry of transmission lines would make  landing and take-off difficult. The addition of switching structures, the environmental impact and the escalated cost make submarine  lines unfeasible. Each group  represented had it's own specific problems and questions.  The above were the questions brought up most frequently. Though one must  remember that transmission  lines do not seem to be the  only answer.  All groups stressed the fact  that "people can change the  situation". Although, Hydro  has yet to come to a definite decision: a moratorium of  at least one year would  allow for the completion of  current studies and more studies by independent consultants. All members of the  coast should take interest in  this line. It will eventually  have effects on us all. The  meeting ended on a hopeful  note ��� an official government  public hearing on all aspects  related to the transmission  line may be held soon.

The  debate  gains  importance in light of this nation's  push toward higher capacity  lines. While 765 kilovolts is  the highest capacity line now  used in this country, utilities  are experimenting with lines  of 1,500 kilovolts.

Charged-up  Ohioans fought to stop incoming powerlines.  What do they fear?  Radiation. Not the nuclear  of commercial pacemakers  are affected, but in ways that  do not hurm the individual.  Other research showed  leaf tipis to brown when exposed to strong fields. At  Penn S tate, bees living under  the fields built smaller hives,  stopped making honey, waxed  themselves into the hives and  then died.  Dr. Romberg argues that  fields radiate from high-  tension wires that loop from  tower to tower throughout  the United States.  The verdict on health effects  is still out. But mounting evidence suggests that the fields  do cause biological change.  "We do have some confirmed effects," said Dr.  Richard Phillips, manager of  the bio-electro-magnetics  programme at Battelle Northwest Laboratory and an admitted skeptic of many earlier  studies.  Dr. Phillips' results ��� unpublished and just a few  weeks old ��� show several  unusual effects. The immune  systems of rats exposed to  the fields were impaired, he  said. Young rats reared in  electromagnetic fields suffered temporary reflex disorders. Nerves became more  excitable. Surprisingly, mice  preferred to sleep in very  weak fields.  But it's a long way from  conducting laboratory tests  with animals to saying the  fields affect humans, he  stressed.  Dr. Andrew A.Marino  disagrees. A biophysicist at  the Veterans Hospital in Syracuse, New York, he is a leading proponent of more careful regulation of powerline  routes.  Dr. Marino's work showed  stunted growth and higher  death rates among mice  exposed to the fields and  blood chemistry changes in  rats. More worrisome, he  said, is the fact that changes  begin at levels people receive  trie Power Research Institute (EPRI) in Palo Alto,  California.  A single 765 kilovolt line  carries as much power as thirty of the more common 138-  kilovolt lines, he noted.  For the amount of electricity  they carry, the large lines require about thirteen times  less land than the smaller  wires and cost about ten  times less.  petience.  The U.S. Department of  Energy (DOE) has spent about  S.J million so far on electromagnetic field research.  One DOE-funded study  showed the needles of fir  trees to be brown within  fifty feet of electrical conductors.
