Students entertain  School board enjoys meetings  The School Board must look  forward to the monthly  education meetings - cake and  ice-cream rather than bread  and butter issues. Cedar  Grove students entertained  on April 12 at their school  with choral recitations, origi  nal poems and stories and  a film demonstrating language  arts and the development of  skills from Grade 1 through 5.  The children couldn't have  had a more attentive and  appreciative audience.

The  course, which is organized by  the Southwestern B.C.  Tourist Association will be  offered at the Cedars Inn in  Gibsons on Sunday, April 22,  from 9:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.  and at the Irvines Landing  Cafe on Monday, April 23,  also from 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m.  There is no charge for the  Hospitality Course but  attendance is limited to 40  people at each location.

Those  interested should contact  thc host facilities without  delay.  tion of Frankenstein directed  and filmed by their teacher  Barry Krangle assisted by  Mike Smeaton using the  School District's video equipment was a delight. The script  was adapted from the original  story or Mary Shelley with  care taken to retain the atmosphere of the period by keeping  ihe manner ot speech, giving a 19th century charm to  this macabre story played  convincingly by these Grade  5 students. Undoubtedly  Marie-Anne Neufeld as the  professor and Ronnie Edmonds as the monster were  the stars and with other  members of the cast thoroughly enjoyed the experience - especially filming on  location in Vancouver. Frankenstein will be shown next  weekend at the Community  TV Forum at Elphinstone.  Elphinstone Student Research Productions, whose  spring Forum on the Potential  for Community TV on the  Sunshine Coast takes place  April 21/22 made a presentation to the School Board also  demonstrating good use of  video-equipment. Introduced  by Mrs. Marta MacKown,  Karl Johnston gave a brief  outline of earlier Forums researched and presented by  the students  the students; Joanne Braithwaite recalled the field trips  taken this year to study public,  commercial and community  television and to learn about  the different types of equipment used. Brian Wall described the work done in  class assignments and presented a short edited film of  excerpts from these productions,   the   Music   Festival  Young Jennifer Cramer rests during a break In the action at the gymkhana held at  Brushwood Farm on Pratt Road last weekend.  and the basketball tournament. Maryanne West traced  the development of the students' interest in community  issues to their desire to see  Cable 10 activated for community use and their exploration  of ways and means to bring  this about. Mrs. MacKown  .concluded with an invitation  to the Trustees and the community to come and take part  in the Forum which hopefully  will be the beginning of  exciting involvement in local  television.  The Salmonid Enhancement  programme for west coast  fisheries has also an educational project for schools  which has been used across  the Province. Stuart Heecus,  Wendy Symonds and Mike  Allegretti who teach at  elementary and secondary  levels in this school district  spoke enthusiastically of  their experience in using the  study material at the Aptil 12  School Board meeting.  Wendy Symonds' Madeira  Park students constructed an  incubation box, which they installed in a nearby stream  with the help of the Fisheries  officer and are impatiently  waiting to estimate the success of their project.  The programme provides a  mammoth  folder of lesson  Elans, reference material,  isson aids, and suggested  activities, but as Mike Allegretti reported the students  quickly think up projects of  their own, eager to Investigate  their particular interests such  as the logging/fishing balance. Many of the students  see themselves as guardians  of the fish which spawn in the  streams near their homes.  The School Board has ap-  6roved requests from Jamie  avidson, Roberts Creek Elementary School, Cheryl  Douglas, Cedar Grove Elementary; George Matthews,  Elphinstone; Sheila Page,  Gibsons Elementary; Romy  Talento, Pender Harbour and  Jim Weir, Elphinstone, for  long term leaves without pay  during the school year 1979-  1980.  "Up with People", an internationally known organisation  of young people will stop over  on the Sunshine Coast in  September between engagements in Powell River and  Vancouver. This American  based group now celebrating  its 10th year offers a musical  programme of interest to all  age groups of international  fold songs and pageantry,  a medley of hit tunes and  dances of the past SO years  and original compositions,  spirited choreography and  Please turn to page nine  Parking seen the problem  Sechelt ponders apartments  A Public Meeting was held  in the Seniors' Hall in Sechelt  last Monday, April 9, 1979,  at 7:30 p.m. to discuss the  Sechelt Village Official  Community Plan. Alderman J.  Kolibas was Chairperson, and  Acting Cerk Ron Gibbs,  Planning Consultant Doug  Roy, Assistant Village Clerk  Marsha Phelan were also in  attendance together with  twelve residents of Sechelt  and a reporter from the Coast  News, originally, this meeting  had been scheduled to hold  final reading of the Plan,  but changes required in the  Plan by the Department of  Municipal Affairs necessitated a postponement of the  formal reading, and the  meeting, therefore, became  an informational one.  Planner Doug Roy said that  the changes were in arrangement rather than in the fundamental content of the Plan  and that the Plan had already  gone through four or five  refinements. This, he said,  was not unusual. Victoria is  he said, a difficult master to  please when it comes to dotting "i's" and crossing "t's"  One of the main points for  discussion was apartments for  the Village of Sechelt. Making  provision for these has been  discussed by Council, partly  as a result of the application  from Jardran Construction  Company to construct an aprt-  ment on the property presently occupied by Rockwood  Lodge adjacent to Sechelt  Elementary School.  Ih answer to a question from  Mr. Bob Bull, Mr. Roy said  that the Planning Committee  had decided to include provision for apartments but that  sites had not yet been designated. He said that the various  designations on the maps  accompanying the Plan were  not intended to preclude  other areas which Council  may subsequently decide to  use for apartment construction for example. The high  density housing designated  in Porpoise Bay (Lots 10 and  18) and proposed for development by Halfmoon Bay  Developers does not  include apartments, nor do  any of the other areas similarly designated. These are  zoned R3, and they would  have to be rezoned R4 in the  event that applications to  build apartments on these  sites were approved.  Objections on a number of  grounds were expressed  with regard to the proposed  apartment construction on the  Rockwood Lodge site. Mr.  Burley said that what was  needed was apartments for  senior citizens and incapacitated people who could not  climb stairs, and the Rockwood Lodge site was not suitable. Level land close to shops  is what is needed, he said,  land such as that on which the  present senior citizens' homes  are built. He said that there  was a waiting list for these  homes, Mr. Burley told the  Coast News that he had received calls from several  elderly or incapacitated people  who felt unable to maintain  their homes. It costs $12  an hour to hire a gardener  these days, he said. The  people who called were hoping  that Mr. Burley would develop apartments on his land  on Boulevard.  Mrs. D.W. Steele, who has  lived next door to Rockwood  Lodge for thirty years spoke  of the parking problems  already existing in this area.  There was, she said no off-  street parking for Sechelt  Elementary School, and her  driveway is the only place  where people can turn around.  She told the Coast News that  she had first complained  about this situation in 1956.  Mr. Roy said that he had no  answer to the question of  school parking requirements.  Letters of objection to the  proposed apartment on the  Rockwood Lodge site have  been received from Mr. and  Mrs. P. Gross and from Mr.  Ben Lang. Joyce Kolibas  said that the proposed construction would create more  parking problems in the area,  and she referred to part of  the plan which allows parking  in the front yards between  the building and the street.  She was, she said, opposed to  this.  Mr. Hunter said that problems arise with regard to  traffic when any apartments  are built. Access to the busy  highway near the double S  bends was also mentioned,  and it was pointed out that the  two schools and the church  were already feeding into  this dog leg of a stretch of  highway. Mrs. Parish asked  why we couldn't get the main  highway built through the  power line area. Mr. Roy  said that he had had an office  in Gibsons in 1957 and a  survey for the still unbuilt  Langdale by-pass was going  on then. He couldn't see the  by-pass of which Mrs. Parish  spoke going in for many years.  "Tucker Forsythe and the  Highways people just raise  their eyes to heaven when  asked when the Sechelt bypass will be built," he said.  Mr. Roy said that congestion and parking are concerns  for the Village of Sechelt, and  that Council is going to apply  to Victoria for money to carry  out a study to see what rational solution to the parking  problem could be found. He  thought that perhaps a Parking Court, a shared parking  situation might be part of  the answer. For residences,  he said that one and a half  parking spaces per dwelling  unit are required.  Mr. Vic Walters said that  the use of stub streets near the  waterfront had been proposed, and he wondered  whether adjacent property  owners would have any rights  to use these for their parking.  Mr. Roy replied that they  would not, and he went on to  explain that Council felt that  Boulevard should be for  pedestrians only, and that  each stub on Inlet, Trail,  Ocean and Shorncliff should  be closed to vehicular traffic  except for access to certain  properties. He also said that  Teredo Street may be made  one way with Cowrie Street  one way in the opposite  direction.  "There's no question about  it," said Doug Roy, "the automobile is a benefit and a  curse, and it's going to be  difficult for the Village of  Sechelt to find a balance."  Lockstead makes  strong protest  Don Lockstead, N.D.P. MLA for Mackenzie Constituency  has sent a strongly worded telegram to Ken Morton, B.C.  Registrar of Voters.  The following is the text of this telegram, which reflects  Mr. Lockstead's indignation over the way voter registration  has been handled.  "As the elected representative for Mackenzie, I am outraged by the indifferent and shoddy treatment shown thc  people of this electoral district.  I draw your attention to the fact that many voters in my  constituency have been disenfranchised because of the  unseemly haste with which the voter registration took place  this week. The Returning Officer was not in an office until  Monday, April 9th. Locations and phone numbers for voter  registration were not made known to the public before  Monday, April 9th in Powell River and Texada; and Tuesday,  April 10th throughout the Sechelt Peninsula.  Voter registration was to end as of midnight April 11th  but even this was not the case.  Apart from Powell River, registration centres appear to  have closed at any time between 5:30 and 9:00 p.m. on  Wednesday, April 11th.  Such inadequate notice and early closings have stifled  the democratic process. I demand accountability for this  deplorable situation."  ��� ���     . ���  These lambs, perennial signs of spring were photographed with their mothers at  the Kitson place on Henry Road.  One man drowned,another saved  in Selma Park boating accident  One man was drowned and  another rescued in the last  stages of hypothermia as a  result of a boating accident  between Trail Island and  Sechelt last Friday night.  Gibsons photographer Cecil  Abernethy told the Coast  News that he was visiting his  sister Mrs. W. Parke in  Selma Park on Friday night  when his niece told him to be  ready to flag down the ambu  lance.  Apparently Abernethy's  nephew, Ron Parke, aged T%  together with a cousin James  Evjen, aged 13, visiting from  Surrey, had gone out about  8:00 p.m. to check on their  crab traps when they heard  a faint cry for help coming  from further out. Upon investigating the two boys found a  man clinging to his boat  and they managed,  despite  the fact that he was heavy-  set, to get him aboard their  rowboat and return him to  the shore.  Despite his weakness,  the rescued man was able to  tell them that a big wave  had capsized the boat between  Trail Island and Sechelt about  6:00 p.m. and that the second  man in the boat had gone  down almost immediately.  The survivor had been in the  water almost two hours before  the two boys heard his cries.  The body of the second man  was found by the hovercraft of  Airsea Rescue about 10 p.m.  The body was in the water  about three hundred yards  from where the boat had  drifted.  At the time of going to  press next of kin had not yet  been contacted and no names  were available.

Nonetheless it is  true that the method of government  which we prize so highly depends upon  elections and elections depend upon  choice and choice depends upon some  exposure to the issues and candidates  who seek office. It well behooves us,  therefore, to endure with grace the  politicizing that is taking place these  days.  Nor is it advisable to endure this period  of electioneering with closed minds.  Surely the days when people voted for  this party or that because their fathers  did are gone from among us. The exercise  of voting deserves more than just a preconditioned or reflex response. If it is to  be meaningful then the voters must  weigh the options open to them and make  their choices as intelligently as possible.  This does not mean that we feel that  voters should agonize and brood over the  multiplicity of issues federal and provin -  cial that beset them. None of us has the  time, the opportunity, nor the enrgy to  make ourselves instant experts on the  political problems that exist. The best we  can do is intelligent guessing or instinctive decision-making. Our own best  judgement is what we should be relying  upon, not the likelihood of this or that  result, as explained to us by the tireless  and tiresome takers of public opinion  polls, but the promptings of our own  inner voices after we have given the  matter as much consideration as time  and opportunity will allow.  The first great sin in a democratic state  is not to vote. The right to vote, to  change governments peacefully if we are  dissatisfied, is too precious a right to be  let go by neglect. It is our privilege  and our duty to vote according to the dictates of our consciences.  The second sin is to vote without  reflection, to make this most important of  decisions carelessly as though it didn't  matter.  Properly regarded, a say in the choice  of government is a sacred trust and even  if the clamorous politicians with their  contradictory claims become, during the  process of electioneering, something of  a pain in the neck, nonetheless they are  engaged in an important part of an important process and we must consider them  with minds as open and as receptive as  we can make them.  The Community Forum  This coming weekend is shaping up  as quite a weekend. In the first place, it  has long been planned to hold another of  Elphinstone Secondary School's Community Forums on the role, this time, that  community T.V. can play in community  life. The forums held in the past on the  use of herbicides and on solid waste  disposal have been uniformly excellent  and informative and undoubtedly the  coming forum will be of great interest.  The incidence of a federal and a provincial election at the present time has  made the afore-mentioned forum, at  which several of the candidates were to  be present in any case, seem a natural  focal point for all-candidates meetings  and oh Sunday, April 22, such meetings  for both federal and provincial candidates  have been scheduled, the federal all-  candidates meeting at 11:00 a.m. and the  provincial candidates face to face at  4:30 p.m. In addition, organizers of the  forum inform us that it is hoped that there  will be an information desk with details of  voting places and advance polls and a  host of other informative matters to facilitate the electoral process.  All in all, it would appear that Elphinstone Secondary School will assuredly be  the place to be on Saturday and Sunday of  this week for all those people with an  interest in their community, their province and the country.  from trie files of Coast News  FIVE YEARS AGO  The Sechelt Indian Band becomes  the first Indian band In Canada to  take complete management control  over Indian lands.  Grant Carson, executive director  of North West Log Salvors, writes to  the Coast News:"...we should blame  our former governments...who for  40 years took no steps to correct the  problem of forest wastes on waterways and beaches) nor forced the  Forest Industries to cease their  irresponsible practices."  Fashion store owner Helen Johnstone Is hospitalized after a fall from  a ladder In her Gibsons store.  TEN YEARS AGO  Lyn Vernon, daughter of Mr. and  Mrs. Ran Vernon of Gpwer Point, is  awarded a Canada Council grant for  further music studies in Geneva.  Secretary-Treasurer Jim Metzler of  School District #46 reports that a  saving of $63,000 and earned interest  of $2,000 has been achieved by bulk  buying of school supplies.  Coast News editorial: "Gimmicks  have their place In the political  field but not to the exclusion of fundamentals which is something the  Bennett government has avoided.''  FIFTEEN YEARS AGO  An order has gone to the Department of Transport to raise an oil  barge containing 200 tons of heavy  fuel oil lying between Paisley and  Bowen Islands. The barge, enroute to  Port Mellon, sank after hitting a  deadhead.  TWENTY YEARS AGO  Gibsons Municipal mill rate will  remain at 13 mills but the school  mill rate will rise 4 mills to 19 mills.  Rock and roll group The Planets  will entertain in the Port Mellon Community Hall on April 25 from 1 p.m. to  5 p.m.  The completion of the ferry link  between Campbell River and Lund Is  said to be imminent.  TWENTY-FIVE YEARS AGO  A letter from an Egmont resident  asked School Board support In having  the Agamemnon Road extended three  miles to Egmont.  The Roberls Creek String Orchestra, under the direction of Miss  Margaret Mclntyre, will present  their final concert of the season  on April 24.  Tom Davey of Gibsons suffered  severe pelvic and abdominal Injuries  when logs he was unloading In the  Bay area rolled and fell on him.  THIRTY YEARS AGO  A $6,000 catch of dogfish was made  in two days by local fishermen  recently. The fishermen use a long  line with up to 2,000 hooks to catch  the fish whose livers are valued at  $4.50 per pound.  A midget cow has been discovered  in Everett, Washington. The animal,  three feet long and two feet high and  weighing only 90 lbs., Is believed by  cattlemen to be a cross with the  midget deer found on Whidbey Island  near Everett.  Any one of many photos could be selected to commemorate the  passing of Harry Roberts. He would undoubtedly have approved of  this one. It shows his ODAMITE, which he had built at Roberts  Creek in 1917, at the Malaspina Gallery on Gabriola Island. Charles  Merrick says that the name of the craft originated from repeated  refusals by the Department of Transport to accept any of the suggestions Harry had applied for permission to use. In frustration, he  painted ODAMIT in bold letters on the hull, then added an E to  temper the invective when it came time to register. Later, this  became the first of Harry's beloved CHAK CHAK series, travelling  on each of which he hoped to attain something of the freedom of  their namesake, the eagle.  In recognition of Harry's veneration of nature Charles Merrick  and his son Paul hand-crafted a casket entirely of wood. On the lid  they carved the likeness of an eagle.

L.R.Peterson.  ."MM*. ��� ���  Musings  John Burnside  Slings & Arrows ��*  George Matthews  Let's leave our masters and  would-be masters on the  hustings this week and concern ourselves with other  matters than the weighty  business of who shall be the  rulers. Already, early in both  campaigns one begins to  weary of the constant diet of  argument and counterargument on our television  sets and on our radios and  while I do believe that the  current elections are of extreme importance in the life  of our country it will do little  harm to the country or to  ourselves if we divert our  attention briefly from the  issues of the day and consider  matters of less moment.  Easter-time with its great  twin observances of Christ's  sacrifice and resurrection are  behind us again for another  year and perhaps a musing  columnist might be forgiven  for turning his back a while  on these seething political  times and contemplating older  and perhaps larger questions.  Easter is the second greatest of the Christian celebrations after Christmas. Together with Thanksgiving  they make up the three  primary occasions of the  Christian calendar.  Years ago I read an essay  by D.H. Lawrence called  Christ the Risen Lord, and I  would interject that if there  are readers of this piece who  have not made the acquaintance of Lawrence the essayist  as opposed to Lawrence the  novelist, 1 would urge that  they do so. A writer of irascible wit as an essayist  with a mind that ranges  freely over a great range of  human thought, he is entertaining and provocative. It  may be impossible to agree  with him but it will certainly  be difficult to be bored.  In any case, in this particular essay called Christ the  Risen Lord, Lawrence addresses himself to the question of Christian celebration.  He observes, quite accurately  that the early Christians  facilitated acceptance of their  creed by adopting the holy  days of pagan thought and  adapting them for their own  use. When the Roman Empire  was christianised, for example, it was much easier for  the emperors to impart the  new religion to their subjects  by leaving the holy days or  holidays unchanged and changing only the names in which  they were celebrated. Thus  the 25th of December has  more to do with a traditional  mid-winter celebration of  the earlier Sun-worshppers  than it does with the actual  birthdate of Jesus of  Nazareth.  One would assume that  such adoption and adaption  are but practical at times  of great religious transitions.  The common people have  their familiar household gods  and practices but little changed and are the more disposed  to accept the new spiritual  truths.  As with Christmas, so with  Easter and with Thanksgiving. It surely needs little  emphasis that mankind has  always celebrated a festival of  rebirth and renewed hope in  Springtime and a celebration  of thankfulness for blessings  given in the Autumn.  Where Lawrence takes a  sharply different tack is in  his stressing of the fact that  unlike the great cyclical  celebrations that preceded  the Christian faith, Christianity has no celebration of  high summer. There is a  celebration of the winter solstice, parallelling the pagan  festivals, the celebration of  rebirth in the Springtime  and the celebration of thanksgiving in the Autumn, both  parallelling traditional and  prehistoric ritual, but in the  high summer there is a blank  in the Christian calendar.  To paraphrase Lawrence,  there is no celebration of joy  for life at its fullest and most  fruitful, no high summer gladness for being alive in the  Christian faith.  In his most irascible and  irreverent way - and let me  acknowledge here that  I use the word irreverent  as a positive. It seems to me  that all the truly worthwhile  questions have been asked by  those irreverent of the conventional wisdom of their  time - Lawrence stipulates  that the fault lies with what  the gospel tells happens  after the miracle of rebirth.  There is, says Lawrence,  this miracle of the victory  of life over death, but for  what? What does Christ do  after his re-emergence  from the tomb? The irascible  Lawrence observes that the  Saviour skulks in hiding for  six weeks after the miracle of  rebirth, reveals himself to  his faithful on a couple of  occasions and then goes up  to heaven on a cloud. Lawrence finds all this unsatisfactory. The true miracle of  rebirth after death, he argues,  is that the reborn life creates  more life and that the Christian myth as cyclical myth  would have been more convincing if, after rebirth,  Christ had mated and reproduced.  Lawrence argues that much  of the anti-feminine bias  of the Christian church  is traceable to the fact that  there is no summer celebration of the conception of the  fruits for which we give thanks  in the autumn. I think the last  work of note that Lawrence  wrote was a companion  novelette to this essay which  came to be called The Man  Who Died in which he has  the risen Lord recuperate  from the crucifixion and the  tomb and then repudiate the  saviour's role and eventually  marry and reproduce in another land with a priestess of an  ancient cult.  Lawrence's        arguments  in the essay will undoubtedly  Please turn to page five  Can you  remember what  high school was like? Do you  remember basketball games,  cheerleaders, school dances,  chalk dust, grumpy librarians,  crowded hallways? Can you  remember the combination of  your locker or even your  locker number?  If you can remember some  of these things, you might  even remember what learning  was like. The only thing I can  remember is sitting in English  or Geography classes listening  to the teacher, writing page  after page of notes (which I  never reread), drawing pictures of river estuaries or  continents off the blackboard  and trying to be very small  when the teacher started  asking questions.  I went to school in the  1950's and to tell you the  truth, I remember very little  of the experience, and even  though I must have learned  enough to get into university,  I can't really remember learning much.  In those days, forty students  in a classroom was common,  or what we would call today,  a pupil/teacher ratio of 40  to 1. Since that time, schools  have changed, Classes of  more than 25 are uncommon  today. By agreement, class  sizes are almost never over 30.

And whence such fair garments, such prosper!���ty?"-  ��� 'O didn 't you know I 'd been ruined?'' said she.  ���"You left us In tatters, without shoes or socks,  Tired of digging potatoes, and spudding up docks;  And now you 've gay bracelets and bright feathers three!''  '' Yes: that's how we dress when we 're ruined,'' said she.  ��� "At home In the barton you said 'thee 'and 'thou',  And 'Ihikoon', and 'theasoon', and' 'other'; but now  Your talking quite tits 'ee for high compa���ny!"���  ��� 'Somepolish Is gained with one's ruin, "saidshe.  ��� "Yourhands werellkepaws then, yourfaceblue  and bleak  But now I 'm bewitched by your delicate cheek,  And your little gloves tit as on any la���dyl' '���  ���' We never do work when we 're ruined, "says she.  ���"You used to call home-life a hag-ridden dream,  And you 'd sigh, and you 'd sock; but at present you seem  To know not of megrims or melancho���lyl' '���  ''True.

You ain 't ruined, "saidshe.  Thomas Hardy (1866)  does that mean to me? First  of all, it means you are paying  more taxes, and a greater part  of your taxes are going into  education. More than 80%  of school board budgets  go to pay teacher salaries  and those salaries can range  between $15,000 and $25,000.  Let's say there are 100 teachers in your school district  and their average salary is  $18,000 per year, and let's  say you have one teacher  teaching 40 students. The  annual cost is going to be  $1,800,000 in teacher salaries  or roughly $450 per student.  Now, let's say your school  board has decided that students would learn better if  they had one teacher for every  twenty-five students rather  than for every forty. All of a  sudden the cost of education  has risen. Now the salary bill  is going to be $2,880,000  a million dollars more than  before and instead of paying  out $450 per student, it's  now costing $720 per student,  an increase of 60%.  In fact, in most school  districts, when you add in  administrators, counsellors,  librarians, learning assistance teachers and so on you  have something like one teacher for every twenty students.  What then are we getting  for our money? The first, and  most important, thing is  better education for our children. In a classroom of twenty-  five students, it is quite rare  to see students scribbling  reams of notes from the blackboard and the possibility  of poing unnoticed when the  reader starts asking questions is extremely remote.  Education research, compiled  over a period of fifty years  tells us that student achievement improves as the size  of the class decreases. Average achievement, in fact,  improves about ten percent  when class size decreases  from forty to fifteen.  This "achievement" is  measured only terms of what  educators call the "cognitive  domain" or what the public  would call, knowledge, comprehension, interpretation,  application, analysis, evaluation and judgement.  A much more difficult,  but extremely important,  factor to measure is what is  called the "affective domain,"  This factor you would recognize by such words as attention, awareness, willingness,  Please turn to page three Coast News, .April 17,1979.

Sweat a Hard Cargo Part VII  Two days after the disastrous march. Ivan Emery and  Oscar Salonen, Business-  agent for the Lumber Handlers, were arrested and  charged with inciting to riot  and engaging in thc same.  Salonen was released almost  immediately on $1,000 bail  arranged by the Canadian  labour Defense League but  i-.mery was held until June  15 before being freed on a  S5.000 bond. Thomas Nelson,  district secretary for the  I .L.D.I., was himself arrested on some trumped-up  charge and held for two hours.  On June 23 at the Orange  Hall, representatives of  thirty unions met in harried  conference, It was resolved  "That this meeting go on record as protesting the use of  police on the docks, demand  Ihat the police be immediately  removed and that the rights  of free-speech assembly  and peaceful picketing be  granted." But McGeer  had already countered this  petition on June 20 when he  stated dogmatically: "The city  will not grant relief to strike  families. This would only be  subsidizing revolutionary  work." Any form of picketing  was declared illegal and the  police, far from being "Im-  Pages  from a Life-Log  Peter'Trower  mediately removed" had their  ranks strengthened with additional men. They were more  than an abstract threat now.  They had demonstrated  the ruthless lengths to which  they were prepared to go  and the strikers trod more  warily. But despite McGeer's  ruling in the matter of welfare,  they were by no means ready  to capitulate.  The climate of public thinking in regard to the strike  was considerably different  from the postwar apathy of  1923. The grim spectre of the  depression had brought an  upsurge of social-consciousness and the strikers received  sympathy and support from  many quarters after the  Ballentyne Pier outrage.  Fascistic union-smashing  was becoming less and less, a  tolerable practice. The Maritime Federation in the United  States refused to handle the  scab cargoes emanating from  the cordoned-off docks of  Vancouver. It was reportedly  costing the Federation  $120,000 a day to keep the  port open with their badge-  packing thugs and inexperien  ced crews. Such influential  religious groups as the United  Church and the B.C. Federation for a Christian Social  Order came out impassionedly  in favour of a reopening of negotiations and a return to  fair collective-bargaining on  the waterfront. On September  28, $3,700 was collected on a  tag-day and distributed  among the beleaguered  strikers and their families. In  the face of such massive  public disapproval of their  actions, the Federation finally  gave indication that it was  prepared to recognize the  Union. It began to look as  though the strike, despite  its bloody beginnings, would  be ultimately successful.  But this sadly, was not to be  thc case. On September 18,  Mr. Justice Davis of the  Ontario Supreme Court entered the picture, appointed by  the Federal Government to  mediate the dispute. Davis,  undoubtedly an honourable  man by his own lights, listened carefully to spokesmen  from both parties for over  a month.

All this notwithstanding however, he was swayed  by his basic allegiances to the  power-structure in his ultimate findings. His interesting  but firmly-biased final report  exonerated the Companies  and laid the blame in the lap  of that ubiquitous whipping-  boy "left-wing union leadership."This report, made public at the end of October  gave the legal kiss of death  to the strikers. They continued  to hold out for over a month  but their cause had been weakened beyond saving. The  courts, in the name of British  Justice, began meting out  harsh sentences to those convicted in the initial rioting.  William Squires, longshoreman and war-hero, holder of  the D.C.M. and the Military  Medal was sentenced in Burnaby to three years and five  lashes on charges of robbery  with violence and assault  although many witnesses  testified that he had been on  the picket-lines at the time of  the alleged crime. Mildred  Dougan of the Women's  Auxiliary was fined $25 or  thirty days for assaulting  police officers. She went to  jail on the grounds that "the  money is needed for relief  more than it is in the police-  court treasury." In November,  Ivan Emery was found guilty  on two counts of counselling  unlawful assembly and, despite a strong recommendation  for leniency by the jury,  was given three months in  Oakalla.  At least sixteen other union-  members were found guilty of  various offences connected  with the Balllentyne Pier disturbance antJ handed jail-  terms ranging from three  months to one year. It is significant that not one of the  policemen who rode roughshod over the crowd on that  black day was so much as  even reprimanded. At the beginning of December, the  Union was compelled to surrender to the inevitable and  officially terminated the  strike. It is said that nothing  was gained by the Union  in 1935 and in any material  sense, this was certainly true.  Again the blacklist was widely  implemented by the victorious  Federation. It looked on the  surface to be simply a repetition of 1923. But a solidarity  had been forged among the  dockworkers that would  never be stamped-out again.  There were hard years ahead  for many but the tide had  turned irrevocably. The Companies had pulled their last  high-handed coup. They had  barricaded the docks for the  final time.

Film Society  Not surprisingly, there  were mixed reactions to  Providence, a strange and  complex film and the Kwahtahmoss Film Society's  final presentation of the season. One viewer found the  film gross, nihilistic and of  no worth. Two other people  from the audience would  not go quite so far as that,  but they thought that the  great acting and fine visuals  were essentially a waste.  Only three ballots were completed, two of which rated  the film "Excellent" and the  other "Very Good". One commented: "Acting - superb;  Setting - catches one'up into  the wild imaginings of the  old man; Story - so so."  Another comment was, "Excellent, but an entirely  confusing film" Tony Archer  found the film most interesting. He has attended the  Film Society's screenings  regularly, and he pointed out  the interesting thematic  similarity between this film  and Fellini's 8'/i which was  screened here on February  13,1979.  I saw Providence for a  second time last Tuesday. I  had, however, retained only  a hazy though favourable  impression of the film from  my first viewing since I saw  26 other films in less than  three days on that occasion.  There were a couple of images  which I found incomprehensible. Otherwise I thought  the film could be viewed  simply as a division between  actual events (those which  ocurred when Clive Lanham,  the writer, was in actual view)  and fantasy or imagined  events (those which took  place when Langham was  off camera, although his  voice was often heard during  these periods).! was no more  disturbed by the slight-  ness of the plot than was I  for the similarly slender  story of 8'/i upon which Tony  commented. I did not consider  the coarse language or the  few gross scenes gratuitous.  I though these were manifestations of Clive Langham's  character and of his preoccupation with death and completion of his novel. I though the  film well worth seeing and  the sort of film which adds  an intriguing variety to film  society programming.  I regret that it is not possible to screen any more films.  Altogether, there have been  fourteen presentations, and  the reaction to most of them  has been most favourable. It  is gratifying to have delighted  and pleased, but the hard  reality of economics dictate  the terms under which films  for minority audiences can be  screened.  The same reasoning applies  to other events of a cultural  nature such as the Countryside Concerts series which  commenced last week. It  is sometimes possible to  subsidize such events to an  extent with grant funding, but  the ventures must fail if they  are not sufficiently patronized.  On behalf of the executive of  the Film Society, I would like  in conclusion to thank everyone who came to the films.  ������^���m  ���������  \f w  M  i  Elli nulla in '.*     :  1 *  Astrology   *  words concerning partner's  financial muddle.

Book Review  A Socred attack  The 1200 Daysi A Shattered  Dreamt Dave Barret and the  N.D.P. In B.C. 1972-75. by  Lome J. Kavic and Garry  Brian Nixon.  N.D.P. Campaign officials  must be giggling behind  their hands about Premier  Bennett's constant drawing  of attention to this book during  the first days of the election  campaign. There is no doubt  that the book represents a  relentlessly hostile attack on  the performance of the Barrett  government during its brief  hold on the power it now begs  to regain; this cankered viewpoint is so obvious from the  first few pages most readers  will quickly reject it and read  on for the valuable statistics  and juicy inside  that follows.  On one page poor Barrett  will be flayed for refusing to  listen to his caucus and running a one-man government;  on the next page he will be  flayed for giving in to the  caucus's 'misdirected'  urgings and not being a one-  man government. Barrett's  daring move to increase  B.C.'s income from natural  gas exports to the U.S. -  one of his most indisputably  triumphant actions in office -  is acknowledged only by  criticizing him for not doing it  sooner and bigger. The  N.D.P.'s successful housing  iniatives which bore fruit  largely after they were out  of office, are simply ignored.  The N.D.P. is blamed for  creating problems which were  in fact the result of co-ordinated opposition to them by  big business.  It's obvious in spite of a  parting pat on the head in  the last chapter that these  authors whoever they are, are  hopelessly down on Little  Fat Davey's case and this  must lessen the effect of all  they say about him. On the  other hand it lends great  credence to any points they  grudgingly allow in Barrett's  favour, and to any criticism  they make of his Social  Credit's opponents.  In this way the book ends  up doing more harm to the  Socreds now touting it than  to its intended target, the  N.D.P.  For instance the devastating  role played by the daily media  that pesky rumour that he,  well, lies a lot:  "The new premier went on  to announce that 'we will  have a cash shortfall of close  to $400 million.

By Steve Ripper,  Karl Johnston and BUI Home  Re: Community Forum on  Community T.V. April  21st  and 22nd.  Announcing a Community  Forum on Community Television presented by Elphinstone Student Research Productions to be held on the  weekend of Saturday the 21st  and Sunday the 22nd of April  in the Elphinstone Auditorium.  Our intentions are to bring  to light the issues of Community Television relating  particularly to the problems  associated with the Sunshine  Coast. The goal of this forum  is to probe into the pros and  cons of Community Television. Another major aim of  this forum is to educate the  public on the subject of the  television media.  The first day of the forum  opens with a series of video  tape productions. These productions are examples of  possible Community Television programming. There  will be seven live performances to be viewed in the  gym. These shows should  please those in all age categories. The programmes  range from the Driftwood  Players to a tennis lesson.  All seven will be video taped  using broadcast quality colour  equipment. The equipment  will be loaned for the use of  the students by Sony video  suppliers in Vancouver.  The equipment is of the type  the community would be  able to afford and of the  calibre that it would be a  worthwhile purchase. The  equipment consists of a  minimum of 3 colour portable  cameras and 3 video tape  recorders.  On Saturday we will also  present a series of prerecorded videotape productions. These productions are  examples of possible Community Television programming.  They include the recently  aired Window on the West  Pioneer tapes, a grade five  production of the classic  Frankenstein, the action  packed culmination of the  Provincial Girls Basketball  Tournament, highlights of  the Music, Dance and Drama  Festival, and a variety of  ESRP class and community  T.V. productions from other  Cable Stations will be available for viewing.  Sunday.  At 4:30 p.m. on Sunday  ESRP in co-operation with  provincial campaign managers  is presenting an All-Candidates Meeting. The candidates  at that meeting are Don Lock-  stead-NDP, and Gerry Gray-  SOCRED. This meeting will  be held in the Elphinstone  Auditorium.  Sunday morning begins  with a Federal All-Candidates  Meeting. The candidates  include Jack Pearsall-LIBE-  RAL, Ray Skelly-NDP, and  AI Lezert-CONSERVATIVE.  The meeting starts at 11 a.m.  in the Elphinstone Auditorium.  From 12 noon to 2:00 p.m.  select programmes will be  available for viewing. They  include interviews with  pioneers Ida Higgs, Ada  Dawe, Ted Wyngarden and  1st Annual Spring - Summer "SHOPPING SPREE"  The Rainbow's End  Boutique  formerly Downtown Roberts Creek, now relocated on Tyson Rd.  (see map.)

Hydro  Cheekye to Dunsmuir Transmission Line.  At 2:00 p.m. we bring to  you the highlight of the Forum  our fourth panel discussion.  The panel consists of John  Thomas, Rosalie Gower,  Maryanne West and John  Denley. Here is a brief history of each of the panel  members:  John Thomasi Mr. Thomas  was in charge of the establishment of cable television  services for the communities of Sechelt and Gibsons  and surrounding areas.  Mr. John Thomas and his  family took up residence in  Gibsons in December of 1969  and later Mr. Thomas and his  family moved to Selma  Park where he resided until  July of 1973.  Mr. Thomas and family now  reside in Tsawassen (Delta)  where Mr. Thomas is employed by Delta Cable Television Ltd. in the position of  General Manager. Delta  Cable Television Ltd. provides cable service to over  85% of Delta municipality.  Rosalie GowenRosalie Gower  of Vernon, B.C. is a part-time  commissioner of the C.R.T.C.  She has held this position  for six years. Mrs. Gower is  particularly interested in  Community Programming.  Rosalie was formerly employed as a Registered Nurse.  Maiyamw Weati Mrs. Mary  anne West is the president of  the Sunshine Coast Steering  Committee on Community  television. This body asked  the ESRP to organize the  Forum.  John Denleyi Mr. Denley  has been Superintendent of  S.D. #46 for four years. He  has encouraged the ESRP  from its very beginning to  be involved in relevant-  meaningful community  affairs. Mr. Denley supports  the idea of Community Television and looks forward  to this School District's participation.  Power out  Could it be that the forces  have decided the Sunshine  Coast Bingo fans should  switch to other gambling  activities like driving Highway  101 or Russian Roulette?  Heaven knows! The fact is for  the third time this year, the  power went out at the Roberts  Creek Community Hall during the best of the Bingo  game, leaving everyone in the  dark (including Hydro)  and therefore forcing the  game to a halt.  There are back-up lights of  course but they will only sustain visibility for a half-hour  and that doesn't take care of  the Bingo machine. Apart  from being a good night out  for many folks, these Bingo  games, organized by the Elphinstone Recreation Group  do contribute fair amounts of  monies to the community.  It's rather unfortunate that  all the voluntary labour that  goes into organizing these  games was wasted by what  remains a mysterious power  outage.' It appears that the  Masonic Hall has suffered  similar problems also. If  worse comes to worst we will  just have to rename Hall Road  if this happens again. Anyone  for Jinx Boulevard...how  about Spooky Drive?...  Mystery Lane?  Special guests at the Forum  include the social consultant  to the president of the C.B.C.  He will be available to discuss  C.B.C. programming during  the course of the forum.  ��SUNSHINE  KITCHENS  FINE CABINETS  886-9411 Gibsons  YOUR AUTOPLAN  CENTR!

Whan most people think about Italian cooking, tha first thing  that comas to mind is spaghetti, or some other pasta dish. In  actuality Italian cooking offers a wide and varied menu, and  many of tha dishes are simple to make and enjoy. In the series  Nitty Gritty Cook Books, foods from all over the world are shown  and simply explained. Entertain your dinner guests and family  alike with international cuisine, and make your mealtimes  memorable.  Meat Is plentiful and good In Italy and any and all cuts of beet are pampered Into succulence by the  j��. Italian chef. Milk-fed veal, much of It from Lombardy, It featured In a great many dishes. The thin slice  */' of veal, often pounded thinner, Is the basic theme on which many chefs build their subtle variations.  Lamb can be exceptionally tasty and uniquely Italian when dressed up with garlic, rosemary, truffles,  or anchovies and red wine.  Modern Italians are fond of pork and, In addition to the routs, chops, and ribs, they make a number ol  good pork sausages. Usually they prefer fresh lemon with pork Instead of the applesauce favoured In  America. Variety cuts are widely used in Italian kitchens and many recipes are available featuring these  variety meats.  Chicken hat numerous variation! - broiled, pen-fried, oven-baked  grilled, stuffed, (not with breed, but with ham, chestnuts, sausage,  olives, etc. I) or smothered In mushroom), ham  and melted cheese.  a       Excerpts from ���  The Italian Cookbook  by Katharine Ramano.

We regret the disappointment by many who were  unable to obtain plants, as  we were sold out by 11:30 a.m.  In order to organize a sale  of this nature, it is very necessary that we receive  plants the evening before,  or no later than 8:30 a.m. on  sale day or are notified in  advance for pick up service  and that we know in advance,  what is forthcoming.  Those donating time for  pick up service, pricing and  display work were criticized  for buying plants the previous  eveningithere is no opportunity whatsoever for these  workers to do so on day of  sale.

The irreverence he evinces  however, is the irreverence  of those who address themselves to great questions  fearlessly and afresh. If the  criticisms he expresses and  the answers he proposes  outrage us they will nonetheless cause us to contemplate  the  central  tenets  of  Christianity with fresh vigour.  If in his work on Christian  themes this irritable and  irritating author, as E.M.  Forster called him, makes  us aware that there is an  anti-feminine bias historically  in the Christian church and  that in fact there may be some  distortion in the creed because  there is no celebration of life  itself in its cyclical celebrations, he may be doing us a  service however angry he  initially makes us.  rsi/tfp//>U  DRVdERninC  seruite  Peninsula  Cleaners  & Laundry  ALTERATIONS & REPAIRS  PENINSULA CLEANERS i  a WILL BE CLOSED I  % FOR EASTER HOLIDAYS 1  I FROM QOOD FRIDAY i  I APRIL 13 to APRIL 23 %  | (Inclusive) ?

Hydro to  the B.C. Energy Commission.  Tl�� Project  B.C. Hydro and Power Authority is considering the poss-  bility of extending its natural  gat service to Vancouver  Island. As part of the project,  a !conventional underwater  pipeline would be constructed to transport natural gas  from the Mainland to Vancouver Island, and transmission and distribution systems  would be constructed on Vancouver Island to serve all  major load centres between  Campbell River and Victoria,  including the Alberni area.  Over the past few years,  B.C. Hydro has studied the  feasibility of extending  natural gas service to Vancouver Island. A number of  preliminary technical, economic, and environmental  assessments have been carried out and these investigations are continuing on  specific aspects of the project.  The Provincial Government  has instructed the B.C. Energy Commission to study the  feasibility of extending natural, gas service to Vancouver  Island. In its study the Commission will examine the costs  of both the transmission and  distribution systems, will  assess the market on the  Island, and will conduct a  financial analysis of the pipeline* system. The BCEC will  also do an impact study of  serving the Island with  natural gas and study such  things as the impact on  gas exports, the Impact such  a system would have on  Hydro's electric load, and the  savings that would accrue to  the Province from electric  system capital deferments.  BiC. Hydro was asked by  the Commission to contribute  to the study by supplying  the Commission wit* the  proposed transmission and  distribution system costs  and preliminary design, information on the existing distribution system on the Island,  and information on the impact  a Vancouver Island gas system  would have on provincial  electrical requirements,  related capital deferments,  etci'This Hydro has done.  The rationale for this project  is, 'in outline, that it would  proyide natural gas to Van-  cotiyer bland, the only significant market in Western  Canada not served with natural'gas; Island residents who  choose gas for home heating  would save on home-heating  cosjp; it would enable Hydro  to reduce its capital borrowing  requirements for electric  generation and transmission  facilities; it would become a  self-supporting addition to  Hydro's existing service area;  and the project would have  less environmental Impact  than conventional methods of  generating and transmitting  electricity, particularly with  respect to impacts of a continuing and long-term nature.  Osi Supply  There is sufficient "conventional" British Columbia  natural gas to warrant supplying natural gas to Vancouver  Island. It is currently estimated that annual production of  B.C. gas will be able to meet  total annual provincial requirements until at least the  year 2000. Thereafter, declining "conventional"  production could be supplemented with natural gas from  new discoveries, from Arctic  sources, or with synthetic  natural gas made from coal,  natdral gas made from coal.  The Route  B.C.Hydro has completed  a general route location study  for a natural gas transmission  pipeline from the Mainland  to Vancouver Island and concluded that a southern route  front the Lower Mainland via  Georgia Strait and the Gulf  Islands would be significantly  more attractive than a northern route via Powell River.  Both, options were assessed on  the ;basis of environmental  impact, effects on land use  and: people, cost, snd  and;people, cost and engineering difficulty.

Okay, Hydro.  The why of conservation  Energy is an essential  part of our modern lifestyle.  Without energy it's back to  caves and candles.  Buttheworld'stotal  energy resources are becoming  scarcer���and more costly. If we  are to enjoy a reasonable standard  of living in the years to come, we have  to keep an eye on our energy reserves now.  For some of us, that means forming a whole  new set of habits���now.  Here&whatwete  doing  Practising what we preach:  At Hydro, conservation begins at  home. So we've initiated a number of  continuing programs to cut down our  own energy use. In our head office  building, m Vancouver,  lighting levels have been  significantly reduced in a  number of areas. We're condujUf  ing ongoing reviews of energy  efficiency in all our buildings. And.  of course, we have reduced our ther-1  mostat levels to the temperatures  we recommend to other British  Columbia business and industrial uprise  At our natural gas headquarters, in Burnaby, we are now usin$ a  solar water heating system. This provides  part of our hot water requirements. When  our new research and development centre is  completed in Surrey, later this year, its architecture will include integrated solar panel  designs. We will monitor the results closely.  What we learn could be of benefit to  homeowners throughout B.C.  Aerial thermographic surveys:  Hydro is conducting a continuing  series of aerial missions to help British  Columbia homeowners  fight high heating  ,\ -     costs. We're taking  infra-red aerial  pictures of thousands  of rooftops. Individual temperatures  fare recorded on magnetic tape to produce  Black-and-white  "thermograms". These  pinpoint heat losses by showing them as  whitish or light grey areas���indicating the  need for better insulation. ��mit$it+<  The thermograms are ,w��*��4A��y,  displayed in shopping malls, -    -���""  where homeowners are  invited to come  and see how  their insulation  measures up.  B.C. Hydro  personnel are on  hand to help  people locate their  homes and to interpret the results. To  date, this program  has shown thousands  of British Columbians  how to save energy  money. We expect  thousands more to  Second in a series.  ttmUI^M-  AHfiMttWhr  Research:  We are participating in test  programs to replace tne pilot light  of gas furnaces with electric  ignition (no constant pilot), and  other innovations for gas appliances.  In another project, we're study-  ,������_pw��rand dollar savings in homes  fitted with newly recommendedjnsj'  levels in roofs, walls and windows,  inary results are very promising-  savings in excess of 20% are indies  over levels usually encountered.

Hydro specialists  provide information for recommended changes. We also  guidance and advice to any  wishing to undertake an audit of its  total energy efficiency.  We're conducting a series of seminars on all  aspects of industrial energy use. These have  been attended by executives and engineers  from some of British Columbia's largest firms.  As proof that business and industry in  this province are taking energy saving  seriously, many firms are now appointing  their first energy conservation officers.  Public information  programs:  Television and radio  commercials. Posters. Transit  advertising. Displays and  demonstrations. Brochures and  bill inserts. And print advertisements like the one you're  reading now. Hydro is passing  the message along to every  energy user in the province:  We must conserve energy. And  we must do it now.  Here's what  you can do  Home heating:  Heating accounts for about  two-thirds of the total energy used in  your home. So this is one area  where a little attention can pay  big dividends. Cleaning or replacing filters twice each heating  season is a good first step.   Install adequate insulation:  TWce advantage ofB.C. Hydro's  Home Insulation Finance Plan to upgrade  your insulation to recommended standards.  Based on present energy costs, the cost of  insulation can sometimes be recovered in as  little as five years of use. After that���it's  money in your pocket.  Reduce indoor temperatures:  Select the minimum temperature  you need for comfort, "fry 20��C  (68��F) for daytime, and  le-CCfjO-F) at night. Use the  night setting if your home is  unoccupied for a few hours.  It only takes a half-hour or  so for the average home to  return to 20��C. For further  savings, turn off the heat and  close the registers and doors in  unused rooms.  Check weatherstripping,  thermostats, dampers-.  Make sur��1 window* and'doors are  properly weatherstripped to eliminate drafts  and heat losses. Storm doors are another  energy saver.  Thermostats should be located on  inside walls where they are not affected by  heat from the sun or appliances���or by drafts.  Keep fireplace dampers securely  closed when not in use.  Water heating is big too:  Next to home heating, water heating  is the biggest consumer of energy, so check  those dnps. One dripper second adds up to a  tankful every week. That's energy and money  down the drain.  Make sure the temperature control  on your water heater is at tne lowest setting  compatible with cleaning efficiency.  Long pipe-runs waste heating  energy. Water heaters should be located as    close as possible to the point of use.  When this is not feasible, it helps  to insulate the hot water pipe.  Lighting is an  easywaSer:  Use the light you  need, but turn off  lights when and where  they're not required. This  saving is at your fingertips.  Fluorescent lights are about  three times more energy-  efficient than incandescent  bulbs. Switch to them wherever  possible. Keep light bulbs and  fixtures clean. A clean 60-watt bulb  outshines a dirty 100. Consider the use  of dimmers and timers to restrict lighting to  the amount and location needed.  Other suggestions?  These are only a few of the things  you can do to save energy and money around  your home.

By Pender Hufaour k Db Met  Ratepayers Association Publicity Committee  At the recent general meeting of the Pender Harbour  Ratepayers, members voted  by a narrow margin to oppose  the upcoming swimming  pool referendum. Many members were unhappy with the  vote, however, because the  meeting did not have complete information on the pool  project and many of the questions voiced went unanswered. To help people make  their decision on the referendum, to be held this coming  Saturday, April 12, we have  interviewed pool committee  head Shirley Vader and obtained the following facts.  The Proposal.  The project proposed by the  referendum will be completion  of the partially-finished  public swimming pool loca  ted under the gym of the new  secondary school in Kleindale.  Vader describes the proposed  1800- square-foot pool as  "small" by community  standards and "purely recreational" in purpose. It  would be accompanied by  a small whirlpool tub for  therapy purposes. The pool  would be operated 10 hours a  day 10 months of the year  with 4 hours a day during the  week reserved for school use.  The remaining 6 hours a day  and weekends would be  programmed for a variety  of uses including various  types of classes, open public  use and private rentals.  Projected admission rates  would be an average of  75* for individuals and  S2S an hour for rental. Year  passes would be available  for about $100 per family.

Tel. Planning  by crisis is more the norm for  public management.  Among the topics which the  group is investigating are  developments in the tourist  industry and in the retirement  industry. The group consists  of Al Wagner, Chairman,  representing the Gibsons  Chamber of Commerce;  Hank Hall representing the  Sechelt Chamber of Commerce; Carl Christmas of the  Sechelt Village Council; Brian  Stelk representing industrial  employers and the motel  group; Art Devlin representing the Village of Gibsons;  and John Jorgens representing the Regional Board.  John Jorgens told the Coast  News that retirement is seen  as a major industry in this  area. Victoria and White Rock  are rapidly becoming full,  and the Sunshine Coast is  seen as a natural area for  retirement with lots of land  still available. In the long  term, water supply and  transportation are seen as  problems which will, eventually, have to be faced. But the  group wants to hear from  the public. They want the  people to tell them how they  view economic growth for the  Sunshine Coast. Your opinions  are sought, and you are  invited to come and make your  voice heard at the public  meeting on April 23.  Cost of the pool was originally estimated at $365,000  but with the work now done,  grants and savings expected  by using local contractors  Vader estimates the facility  can be completed for  $169,000. Contingencies,  financing and the referendum  cost will raise this sum  to $192,000, which is the total  capital expense foreseen.  After an anticipated $89,000  provincial government grant  the community share of this  will be $103,000. This will be  paid off over the life of the  facility with an annual debt  charge estimated at $13,800.  Operating Cost  The operating costs for the  pool have been estimated by  comparing it with existing  community pools, particularly  the one in Gibsons. The biggest operating cost would be  staff salaries,* with a paid  staff of seven people during  weekdays and two on weekends anticipated. Vader feels  the annual total for salaries  would be kept down to  $28,000 by training local  people for all jobs and keeping  pay rates at the minimum  wage for all but the key  position of head guard.who  might get as much as $7  per hour. Seven local people  including Vader herself have  already begun taking training  for the work.  Additional estimated operating costs including $7,500  a month for heating would run  the total to $4,800 a month ot  $48,000 per year. This would  be offset by an estimated  $23,000 per year in revenue,  estimating revenue is a dicey  business at best and Vader  feels the group is playing it  safe by projecting 1,000  users a month, pointing out  the Gibsons pool has been  used by 35,000 people in its  first 7 months. She likewise  feels $3,000 per year in  private rentals is conservative  pointing out the pool's large  lobby area will make it a good  setting for pool parties,  adding that no drinking  would be permitted. The contribution made by the School  District from its general revenue has not been agreed  upon but Vader would like  to get the same amount  currently been granted to  the Gibsons pool, $10,000.  With the total estimated  revenue of $23,000, the balance comes to $25,000,  which together with the  debt charge of $13,800  brings the total yearly deficit  to be raised by taxes to  $38,800. With an assessed  value for Area A of  $17,525,000 this could be  raised by a tax of 2.12 mills.  It must be understood however that all figures being  used are estimates and actual  figures could differ substantially. The mill rate is not  fixed at 2.12 mills and will be  raised or lowered to meet  actual expenses as need be.  In addition neither the provincial government contribution to capital cost nor the  school Board contribution  to operating costs have been  guaranteed or put down on  paper to this point. Both of  these bodies want the local  taxpayers to commit themselves to the project first. In  answer to criticism on this  matter Vader points out  verbal understandings do  exist, and that the pool may be  eligible for additional grants  from the Provincial Lottery  Fund and Canada Works,  Please turn to page fourteen  Double wedding marked  A double wedding embracing Lethbridge, Calgary,  Hawaii, Wexford in Ireland,  Gibsons and Sechelt was  solemnized in the Sechelt  Council Chambers last Monday when Assistant Commissioner for Marriages Marsha  Phelan joined Alex Sharpe and  Vera Delaney, and Dave  Bidiuk and Debbie Roach in  matrimony on Monday,  April 9,1979.

The society plans to  keep the therapy pool available all day long to accommodate these residents. The  separate pulic entrance  facilitates public use even  during school hours.  The Aquatic Society has  made every effort to cut costs  of this pool, tailored to serve  a small community of about  2000 people, with regards to  size and operating expense.  The pool will be run by local  residents only which will  provide job opportunities for  the community. There are  already 8 persons from Pender  taking courses to qualify for  life guarding. The society  plans to cut costs by doing  its own programming and  managing at the pool.  Budget projections from the  Gibsons pool for 1979 were  used to ensure accurate  operating expenses for the  pool. The Pender pool operation expenses are approximately $48,000 per year.  Estimated revenue is $23,000  which leaves an operating cost  of $25,000. These figures are  based on a 10 month operating  period (pool will be closed in  summer) with the pool running 8-10 hours per day. We  do not plan to run the  do not plan to run the Pender  pool on as large a scale as  the Gibsons pool but plan to  tailor programming to the  size of our community. This  greatly reduces staff salary  expenses.  The financing of the pool  is as follows:  Total estimated capital cost  (including interim financing,  etc.)$192,000. School's share  The above scheme will pay  for the pool over the period  of the life of the facility.  This is a fair system which  allows for people moving into  the area to pay their share  of the pool in later years.  It is projected that any increases in operating expenses  ' will be absorbed by increased  area assessment as the area  grows. This increased growth  will result in a lowering of the  mill rate over the years. The  society will apply for Provincial Lottery monies (we have  just received the application)  as well as a Canada Works  grant which should further  reduce the mill rate.

The  advantages of having the pool  in the school are many, all  resulting in a saving to the  community. The pool is contained in an already heated  and maintained building. The  school printing facilities, etc.,  can be shared with the community, as well as cheaper  liability insurance under a  blanket school insurance  policy. We must act now to  take advantage of these opor-  tunities as each year building  costs rise.  It is time Pender Harbour  had recreation facilities of  its own. The travelling time  and gas money saved by  having recreation at home will  more than pay for the expense  to an individual for a pool in  pour area. The average taxpayer (owning a $55,000  home) will pay $1.50 per  month to completely finish  and operate our pool. What  a small price to pay for the  benefits we will receive I  Already we are paying for  South-peninsula students to  swim at the Gibsons pool  while it is too expensive  in travelling time and money  for our students to take advantage of the Gibsons facility.

Let's get in on the  ground floor. School districts  throughout the province  are following our lead to  combine public and school  recreation progammes.

Fishing Tips from  the Wharfinger  Gibson's gap till May,  Salmon Rock, Gospel Rock,  Gower Point and Camp Byng  till late September, early October.  To avoid making an ass of  yourself, a few tips on anchoring. Buy a Danforth anchor, a  pound for every foot of  vessel length is a good rule.  With a foot of chain for every  foot of length, and a minimum  of 200 ft. of rope, preferably woven poly or nylon  braid for boats over 14'/i ft. is  nice, you can get a good grip  Coast Insulation Co.  on it and it won't kink. Find  the spot you want to anchor,  and check the tide direction  by looking at other boats  around you. Leave enough  room to drift back 100 to  300 ft., and slowly lower your  anchor. Don't throw it. The  chain will sink faster than  the anchor and if it is thrown  chances are it will tangle and  not hold. Done properly you  don't have to motor in reverse  to set your anchor, it will hold  if done as recommended  above. Attach a float to the  end of the rope, so if you hook  a large fish you don't have to  pull your anchor up, but can  untie it from the bow and  throw the whole works overboard. Then boat your fish and  re-tie to your anchor.

They are  the guinea pigs in this?  3. Has every other possible  avenue been researched,  such as natural predators,  etc.  4. If the forest industry is  going to be the one that  suffers in lost revenue, are  they going all out to aid in  this problem, or are they  hoping that government will  handle it for them?  From listening to news  reports on this it seems that  all that has been offered so  far is that hyperactive and  pregnant people should leave  the area - the rest I imagine  just   take   shallow  corner  By Ian Corrance  Spot the shot.  Reading over my column  after it appeared in the paper  last week, I was a wee bit  perturbed to find that instead  of the usual ending "If you  spot anything interesting...."  the word shot had been substituted for spot. Luckily I didn't  get any calls from people  shooting muskox or koala  bears in the Trail Bay Mall.  Even though I've been ostraci*  sed     from     conservational  society and haven't been in- should  vited to any cocktail parties for breaths for a while,  a week, I'm big enough to for- if,   as  is  claimed,   huge  give the typesetter, and just amounts of 'future revenue'  put it down to a Freudian will be lost, why should the  mistake. Mind you, if anyone people in the area - the chan-  does shoot a polar bear on the ces are none of them will  bluff, or a boa constrictor in ever see a penny from the  the Dogwood Cafe, I'd like to 'future revenue' - be the ones  hear about it. to pay for this, both in incon-  GypsyMoth venience and possible health  It looks like the residents in hazard. Why not instead, if  Kitsilano are going to protest this  'future revenue' is as  the spraying of the gypsy  moth.  I was kinda hoping that a  solution to the moth problem  would be quickly ironed out,  because if they are not stopped in the next week or two,  we could be looking at a major  forest decimator, introduced  by chance, but here to stay.  In theory there's a three  block area where the larva is  lurking, waiting for some of  our occasional sunshine, so  it can turn into a moth and  start gobbling up our forests.  The officialdom has, in  their eyes tried to be as  reasonable as they can with  the residents. The contention  is that if they hand spray this  small area now, then there  is a good chance that the  spread of the moth can be  nipped in the bud. If left to  propagate, then this greedy  little creature will start  eating our forests. In the east  there is such a situation and  massive annual spraying  programmes are carried out.  important as is stated, charge  the ones who will be raking  in the money? Has anyone  offered the residents of this  three block area accommodation (preferably in keeping  with the standards of a large  logging company executive?)  for the duration of this mini-  siege on the gypsy moth?  Again, independent studies  would have to be done to  calculate the duration.  Hell, Mac and Bio alone  could buy the whole area,  hopefully at inflated prices,  and not notice it, even if it  came out of their own pockets  come tax time.  lt looked as if at the beginning of this controversy,  everything was being handled  well, and people were going to  be sensible. Now officialdom  has reverted to officialdom,  and just as silly in my estimation, some of the residents  are saying, "Don't spray,  we promise to go out and  pick every larva by hand,  honest we do."

OdtU'nendi.  1 noticed a plea from the  editor of the Gibsons Wildlife newsletter that the author  of a note found on his door  "I was here, but you weren't,  so I left," own up. Unfortunately I let the cat out of  the bag before I realised  that it could have been the  beginning of an intrigue. I  don't take credit for originality. It was plagiarized from a  similar note I received. In one  of my outbursts to my friends,  "Listen I don't mind you borrowing things, but let me  know." I came home and  found a note saying, "I know  you hate people borrowing  things and not telling you,  so I thought I'd tell you that  I borrowed something."  (unsigned)  The wildlife clubs are now  selling raffle tickets. They get  a commission on them, so  if you want to help them out,  buy some. You might even  win a Datsun as a bonus.  While up Jervis, I had kind  of hoped to see rafts of  scoters, but I was disappointed. On Wednesday I had the  luck to be up on the Gibsons  bluff photographing 20 local  beauties (someone said they  counted 40) jumping into a  swimming pool after Rene  Simard. Apart from the obvious delights, I also noticed a  huge flock of scoters sitting in  a tide rip between the bluff  and Gospel Rock. It was  impossible  to  get  a  good  count, but there was anywhere  between 1,000 and 2,000 of  them. They looked as if they  were stopping for a snack  on their way up north. Good  to see them.  It looks like there are  a few changes In the fresh  water fishery regulations  this year. Anyone going  fishing should study them.  Tin Roberts Creek marauder  Identified?  A few weeks ago I mentioned that a large black bird  with six foot wingspan was  ripping the backs of chickens  in Roberts Creek. Since then  I've been told by Steve Carroll  that he's seen ravens doing  this on two different occasions. I can see someone  thinking that a raven had a  six foot wingspan when it was  at close quarters and doing  nasty things to your egg  supply, so we may have uncovered the mystery. Please  don't go out and start shooting  ravens. Buy more chickens,  or protect the ones you have.  Wire is cheaper than buying  eggs by the dozen.  That's all for now, so if you  spot anything interesting,  give me a call at 886-2622, or  886-7817. My home number is  886-9151,ta.  PS  A couple of weeks ago, I  mentioned that Western Bluebirds had been seen in this  area. It should have been the  Mountain Bluebird, my  mistake.  Pender milk run  Important Notice: The meeting scheduled for Thursday,  April 19th must be postponed  until Friday, April 20th,  7:30 p.m. at the Village office I  Anyone requiring information  regarding the above may  phone Carl Chrismas at  885-5200.  Other happenings:  The fishing derby sponsored by the Sechelt Credit  Union will be expanded this  year. It will run two consecutive Saturdays, rather than  just the Sunday as was done  last year. The weigh-ins  be from 2:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m.  on May 12th and May 19th.  We will also make an effort  to provide a little entertainment during the hour.  Also this year, to commemorate the 'Year of the Child',  Larry McDonald will be presenting a trophy to any child  accompanied by a parent,  who weighs in the largest  fish. A nice gesture!  There will be NO entry fee  this yeari All that is required  is that each fish be accompanied by a real, live person!  The Sechelt merchants and  Nutrition  I was told that I should not  eat bananas on my low calorie  diet because they contain  Tat. Is that so?  Don't let your friends turn  you off bananas because you  are dieting. They taste rich,  but bananas have only 85  calories per 100 grams, wh.cli  is about a six-inch banana.  These calories cortain some  valuable nutrients and only  0.2 gm of fat. Tiose other  nutrients are: carbohydrate  22.2 gm, calcium 8 mg, phosphorus 26.7 mg, iron .7 mg,  sodium 1.0 mg, potassium  370 mg, vitamin A 190 I.U.,  vitamin C 10 mg, niacin .7  mg.  Bananas arc a nourishing  food and an excellent source  of potassium, and should be  included in any well-balanced  diet.  Is raw sugar more nutritious  than refined sugar?  | Raw sugar is essentially  the unrefined sugar crystals  extracted from either cane or  beet sugar. The minute  amounts of minerals in raw  sugar supply little of the total  daily needs. Therefore, neither raw nor refined sugar can  be considered a nutritious  food.  business men seem to be  entering into the spirit of  the Nursery Rhyme Theme  by dolling up their stores and  staff. Prizes will be given for  "Little Lord Fauntlcroy",  "Little Bo-Peep" or any other  theme from child mythology  or dream world. We expect  the contest will run for the  week prior to Timber Days,  with judging and presentations made during official  functions.  No V.I.P. receptions this  year. Instead, we would like  to present the kids with free  goodies on the field, such  as hot-dogs, pop and ice  cream. Don't worry, parents!  We'll find some way of sharing the loot so their little  tummies will not be overloaded!  As many of our committee  members have been away on  holiday this past week or  more, we are a bit behind.

Close to 200,000 secondary  school students from 210  schools throughout the province will take part in one of  the most unique events to be  staged during School Sports  week in Canada.  The Milk Run works this  way: All secondary schools  in the province are being  encouraged to have their  students join in a three  kilometer run, jog or walk on  April 25. All participants are  being asked to donate a coin  to the B.C.Lions Society for  Crippled Children.  Upon completion of the  three kilometer course, each  participant will be given a  carton of milk from the local  dairies, as well as a partici  pation certificate.  The programme planned  by the students of Pender  Harbour Secondary School  is to have both students  and community members  involved in the 3 kilometer  run, jog/walk. Everyone is  welcome!  School Sports Week in  Canada is April 22-28 with a  "fun and fitness" theme.  It is designed to promote  participation in school sports  programmes and dedicated to  recognizing the contributions  of the thousands of volunteer  teacher-coaches who work so  hard to make school programmes successful.  It is hoped that the Milk  Run will raise some $20,000  to $25,000 for the Lions  Society for Crippled Children.

The club has five teams  participating this month in  Provincial Tournaments in  various parts of B.C. including  Mission, Kamloops, Vernon  and Victoria.  The club players and  coaches appreciate the fine  support they have received  from the people of the Sunshine Coast which has enabled  them to participate and perhaps bring more championships back to the Coast.

At the present time, a trip  will be made at least once a  month. There have been a  few questions lately about the  spay/neuter programme so  a little enlightenment is perhaps in order.  The Vancouver (main)  branch of the S.P.C.A. has  co-operated with the newly  formed local branch to allow  us to provide the service  so soon.  As the animals in question  have to be transported to  Vancouver, it follows that  there must be a sufficient  number of animals available  to make the trip viable. Doug  Elson, Vice-President, is  currently compiling a list  of members who wish to have  their animals neutered or  spayed. When the list comprises fifteen animals or so,  he then arranges with the  Vancouver branch for a day  on which to take them in.  The owners are phoned and  they present them at a predetermined time (all pets  must be in a suitable leak-  proof container). The pets are  taken to Vancouver and returned the following day to  the point of pick-up.  Costs of the service are  kept as in line with the actual  Vancouver price as possible.  As their rates adjust in relation to their costs, so, the  membership will be advised  accordingly. The aim of the  S.P.C.A. spay/neuter programme is to prevent the production of unwanted kittens  and puppies at as low a price  as can be obtained. This will  ultimately remove the pyra-  dical effect of over production  as experienced in this area in  previous years. This will hopefully, with members' participation,   bring   the   number  of cats and dogs on the Sunshine Coast to an acceptable  level.  In order to get the best  service from the spay/neuter  clinic programme, it would  be wise for all interested  to observe the following.  Eligibility Requirements.  1. Spay and neuter services  are available to all members  of the Sunshine Coast  S.P.C.A. (Memberships can  be obtained by sending $5  to Box 1686, Sechelt)  2. Any dog or cat must be 4  months or older.  3. No female dog that is pregnant, nursing or in heat will  be spayed while in this condition.  4. The Veterinarian performing the operations may disqualify any animal, if, in his  opinion, the animal is not  medically sound to undergo  surgery.  Pre-and Post-Operative  Requirements.  1. The animal must be in good  health.  2. Food must be withheld  from your pet for at least  twelve (12) hours prior to  surgery.  3. After your pet arrives  home, proper care should  be given to his diet, confinement, and observation concerning any possible complications that might occur after  surgery, such as lack of appetite, listlessness, wound interruption, etc.  In future, the scale of  charges for spaying/neutering  offered by the Sunshine  Coast S.P.C.A. on behalf of  the Vancouver branch will be:  Spay   Dog $30   Cat $25  Neuter   Dog $25   Cat $20  These fees include the following services:  ��� Pre-surgical examination  ��� Pre-anaesthetic injections  and confinement  ��� Surgery  ��� Post-surgical     hospitalisa  tion  ��� All medicines and pharme-  ceuticals required.  At the time of spaying or  neutering, it is recommended  that animals not protected  should be vaccinated, at an  .additional cost of SS per  animal.  Remember the S.P.C.A. is  a non-profit organisation run  by members for the benefit  of the members'animals  and for all other animals in  distress and in need of help.  This mutual benefit can only  thrive while the support is  forthcoming and continuous,  so the sooner there is more involvement by the people of  the Sunshine Coast, the sooner the services can be extended to cover more areas.

Grade 12 tests for adults  During the last couple  of years several hundred  adults on the Peninsula have  written the G.E.D. tests  and qualified for a Grade 12  Equivalency Certificate.  Most of the adults have  written the test without  previous upgrading but some  nave spent considerable  time in acquiring sufficient  skills to be able to write the  examinations.  The General Education  Development (G.E.D.)  tests are a series of comprehensive examinations in  English, Social Studies,  Natural Sciences, Literature  and Mathematics.  The certificate which is  awarded to successful students is accepted by most  employers and Institutions.  To take the tests you must  be, at the time of application,  18 years or over, a B.C.  resident for at least six  months, and out of school  for at least one full academic  vear.  The tests are made up of  multiple choice questions.  That means you mark a space  on an answer sheet to show  which answer you think is  best for each question.

In answer to criticisms  voiced at the Ratepayers  General Meeting that the  area's ever-ascending tax  levels will eventually drive  lower-income and fixed-  income residents away, Vader  CLASSIFIED NOTE  Drop off your Coasl News  Classifieds al Campbell's  Family Shoes It Leather  Goods In down-lawn Sechell.  points out that the pool costs  as estimated would only add  $1.50 per month to her own  property tax bill, which she  considers average. This does  not include the portion of  the cost raised from school  board general revenues,  but as Vader points out,  these revenues are already  being tapped to support the  Gibsons pool and with its own  pool Pender Harbour would  be getting some of its own  back.  "I feel that social life in  this community has gone  downhill since I grew up  here," Vader says, "And I  really feel this pool could  improve things. Naturally  there is a cost but I think it's  well worth it."  The Ratepayers Association  urges all Area A voters to go  to the polls this Saturday  and make their feelings on  this issue known.

You can take one or more  of the tests again in an alternate version to raise any of  the scores that were not  satisfactory. However,  sometimes your average  score for all tests must  be raised more than you can  do by improving only one or  two tests. If this is the case  you may have to consider  taking all the tests again.  Answer papers or copies of the  tests are not available to candidates other than during  writing sessions as this would  jeopardize the validity of the  tests. The next test session  will be held on April 27-28  starting Friday night with  two tests, and continuing  Saturday morning with one,  finishing off Saturday afternoon with the two remaining  tests.Special application forms  can be obtained from the  office of Continuing Education  which is located on the parking lot of Chatelech Junior  Secondary School or you can  call 885-3512 and the form  will be sent directly to you.

BrDnreHebew  AnMng In Bangkok, we  ���ere tired, and, so we  thought, indelibly filthy.  We'd Jut come op on the two-  day train ride from Singapore, in the heat and sweat.  My last shower was fading  fast from memory, and as  we hadn't had a chance to  wash our clothes in two or  three weeks, our once bright  shirts had turned communist  dull gray. So all we wanted  was to get to a hotel, any  hotel with a bath or shower,  and soak and sleep in cool  water. But naturally it wasn't  so easy. We chose from a  guide book ��� which we subsequently burnt ��� a hotel  that was recommended as  cheap, clean and hospitable.  So we bartered with the  hordes of "samlor" drivers  swarming around the station  and were off. A samlor is a  three-wheeled monstrosity  Ihat gives understanding to  the phrase "technological  devolution". It is a crippled  motorbike engine and frame  with a carriage for two attached at the rear. It's incredibly loud; incredible, at  least, until you try to communicate with the half or fully  deaf driver. The exhaust is  spewed into the passenger  area, probably purposefully  so as to make easy shortchanging the dazed and  drugged victim. Add to these  throngs of mechanical mosquitoes a never-ending  procession of screaming,  snarling cars and trucks and  their furious unmufflered  engines pouring out noxious  gas that cannot dissipate, and  you have the recipe for hell.  Anyway, we arrived at the  hotel to find it full, of course.  As was the case with the next  three or four we checked  over the course of the next  two hours, suffocating in sam-  lors or labouring under the  ridiculously heavy loads of  our packs which tempted us  more than once in those  hours to renounce all our  worldly goods. But, finally,  paradise was found, rather  stumbled upon, down a back  street in the form of the  "France" hotel. This offered  cool luxury at seven dollars  a night which was seven times  what we usually paid, but we  were ready to register at the  Hilton.  Things began, inexplicably, to look good. Large packets of mail awaited us at the  GPO which we devoured  around the pool, through cool  drinks of Ballantines. One  letter contained a cheque for  $200, an unexpected income  tax refund which Mike's family forwarded. We felt rich, and  worldly goods magically regained their appeal. It most  certainly was the time and  place to celebrate.  Of course on outward appearances Bangkok would not  appear to be an accommodating place for celebration.  One sees, smells and feels the  horrifying results of a deranged pursuit of the Asian  version of the American  dream. In the last decade or  two commercial and industrial concerns have multiplied like mitosis-izing cells  gone mad, leaving a dripping  residue of smog, pollution and  uncontrolled urban sprawl.  But there is relief from all  that, as Mike and I and most  of the million tourists who  pass through Bangkok each,  year found.  The charterloads of European and Japanese businessmen don't give a damn about  the heat and smog and noise;  they can put up with it for  days, snapping the usual  pictures while running  through the litany of sightseeing. It's all put up with  because the Bangkok night  more than rewards them with  its wonders.  The Thai name for the city  is Krung Tbep, which translates to "City of Angels" I  believe; it might just as well  be called "city of burning  flesh". To put it plainly,  Bangkok has a reputation for  being a centre of sensual  pleasures. I'm not sure how  long it has had the facilities  to deserve this world renown,  but it surely goes back to the  Vietnam war, when thousands  of thirsting G.I.'s were sent  there for R. and R. (and probably as far back as the  French domination of Indochina). And just like the  soldiers then, the tourists  now might take in certain  exhibitions not suitable for  family outings. In fact it's impossible here to detail or even  outline what goes on in a typical live sex show  because,  naturally, this is not "Hustler" magazine; besides, it  would be worthless since most  people probably would not  believe  it  (or  allow  them-  Twenty cadets and six  officers of the Sunshine Coast  Army ' Cadet Corps No.  2963, Sechelt, had the opportunity to survey the Sunshine  Coast area from the air on  Sunday, March 10 by helicopter,   supplied  by   Highland  selves to believe it). Suffice Helicopters based in Sechelt,  it to say that these shows were and  piloted  by   Mr.   Dave  positively beastly. But this is Hocking. Three cadets and  just one form of entertainment one officer were able to go  that tourists and natives  alike enjoy ��� the pleasures  of paid flesh offered another.  Prostitutes could, as anywhere, be picked up off the  street, particularly one street  or from the bars which line  this street. But as far as I  could tell most people preferred to take their delight  in one of the hundreds of  massage parlours, and a visit  to one of these is the main  subject of this piece; the rest  of Bangkok, as far as I was  concerned, could (and probably eventually will) suffocate.  To be continued  Come cry with me  By Ann Napier  Write Box 3, c/o Cout News  Dear Ann:  I started seeing a married  woman. I'm in my twenties. I  have had second thoughts  about it, I just don't feel  good about myself. 1 have  tried to talk to her about the  difference in our ages, and  other reasons why I feel I  shouldn't see her again.  Was that a mature approach?  Uneasy  Dear Uneasy:  You must have been easy  to start with? I don't think it  is right for you. An older  woman, that is. If you can't  see past her age well, I'm  sure she has lots of other  qualities that could turn you  on or off.  When we were kids the first  questions we asked when  meeting a new friend were:  How old are you; What grade  are you in? That was to see  if we would continue to develop a friendship if we were  suited. That measure should  be long gone by the twenties.  Dear Ann:  I'm just an ordinary working  man but come Christmas, my  wife thinks I'm a millionaire,  She buys and charges, and  remembers everyone as elaborately as if we could afford  it. It takes us all year to pay  off our Christmas binge.  How can I stop this eternal  circle. And still remain married, that is? Deflated  Dear Deflated:  We all have that deflated  feeling after Christmas  spending, but we shouldn't  take a year to catch up.  One thing you can do is sit  down with her and total up the  cost of Christmas, tell her next  year you could go to Hawaii  for Christmas if she'll just  send cards. Another way is if  she spent $500 for instance,  have her put in a Christmas  bank account a portion each  month, and stay within the  savings. Still others have a  pot luck party and get together around Thanksgiving  and draw names ��� then you  have a person and partner and  or children. You can put more  thought and money into the  gifts you select and not feel  so frantic.  If all else fails, drop the  charge accounts and let the  chips fall where they may.

Not my  size or taste. How can this  happen? When you are together day in, day out, he should  know by looking what I  like. Disappointed  Dear Disappointed:  Look around you, go to  the department stores, and  see how many things are  being exchanged. It must be  that lots of people look without  seeing. It's flattering when  you have to return a gift because someone thought you  were smaller. You could give  a list ahead of time and  sizes, and things you need,  and preferred colours. That  usually happens after you are  married. He really doesn't  look at you any more ��� well,  some quit seeing. They assume you are there, and what  you are like. It can work to  your advantage.

Another aspect of cadet  training will take place in  April at Sakinaw Lake and on  the 17th and 18th of March  some members of the Corps  spent the weekend preparing  the area in readiness for the  training at which four more  Corps from the Lower Mainland and Powell River will  join them.  From March 24 to April 2  two cadets, W/O Randy Ban-  yay and Sgt. Robert Kobus,  will be attending the Outward Bound Course in Kere-  meos, B.C. They were selected for the course because of  the fine standard they achieved whilst members of the  Cadet Corps and were readily  approved by the Cadet Corps  Headquarters.  In the very near future all  cadets will be completely  uniformed thanks to the efforts of Supply Officer Lt.

Major T.J.Goddard  and Training Officer, Lt.  Robert Sommerfield, who did  a wonderful job in arranging  and organizing this exercise.  Each cadet and officer had a  very exciting twenty minutes  in the air, gaining valuable  knowledge as to the terrain  of the area for future Search  and Rescue operations.  The Corps has also started  see the cadets travelling to  Vancouver to visit the McMillan Planetarium and  the Centennial and Maritime  Museums as well as the B.C.  Regimental Museum.  The Corps is extending  gratitude to the sponsor, the  Branch 140 of the Royal Canadian Legion, Sechelt, for the  very generous financial help.  There is still time for new  recruits to attend the Catchup-Course and it is open to all  male and female youngsters  between the ages of thirteen  to nineteen. They may join  the cadets at the Corps'  regular parade held every  Monday from 7:00 p.m.  at Sechelt Elementary School.

She has  men coming in and out of her  apartment very often. I see  young, old, and in between, I  wonder if she's a call girl -  what do you think?  The Observer  Dear Observer:  You could be right, but why  do you care? She may only be  indulging in her longing for  vanity, or maybe she's looking  for a prince and they are all  trying on some glass shoes -  but like in Cinderella he may  be very scarce, and so she  searches on. Seems to me if  she was a call girl she'd be  away more.  m*m  See our  Bargain Shelf  for good buys  NOP Bookstore  The end of the month will  CANADA  EMPLOYMENT  CENTRE  We Have Moved!!!

Last week's winner was Brad Krintlla of  Gibsons, who correctly guessed that the gate decoration was down the steps beside  The Tides.  A Conservative view  Government spending  Vic Stephens, Leader  B.Conservative Party  The Conservative Party of  British Columbia has been  waging a long and determined  Tight against high taxation,  especially at the property  lax level. Our strong stand on  this issue is one of the reasons  why we have become the fastest growing political movement in Canada today.  Governments usually react  to the loss of votes faster  than to anything else. That  is why the resurgence of the  Conservatives has forced the  provincial government to  react by placing a "freeze"  on municipal spending.  While I'm pleased that our  efforts are having the desired  effect on the government 1  am disappointed and alarmed  at the method which the government has chosen in an attempt to control property  taxes. By attempting to control spending of all of the  municipalities in British Columbia from the Minister of  Finance's office in Victoria,  the government of this province has stolen our free and  democratic choice to select  the men and women we will  trust to run our local affairs.  The Bennett government has  committed the unforgivable,  cowardly act of trying to place  the blame for high taxes upon  the shoulders of municipal  politicians when it belongs  squarely with the provincial  government.  Spending increases by government are certainly alarming but the record shows that  municipal governments have  been by far the most responsible with the taxpayer's  Police    [  dollar. In the last decade provincial government spending  ahs increased by 413% with  the present government already ONE BILLION DOLLARS ahead of the previous  one. Increases at the municipal level have been a little  more than one-half of this  rate.  The dramatic increase in  property taxes is the direct  result of three provincial  government policies over  which municipal governments  have no control. Firstly, the  new assessment legislation  caused an increase of at least  25% in all industrial property  and shifted the greatest  tax burden to areas where  inflation on land has struck  hardest. Secondly, the basic  mill rate for school tax purposes, which is fixed entirely  by the provincial government,  has been increased by more  than 50% in the past three  years. Thirdly, where previously the provincial government contributed almost 70%  of the total educational cost  with the property owners  picking up the remainder,  now only 58% is paid by the  province and so an increased  burden has been shifted to  the school tax property.  The deliberate transfer of  spending from the provincial  to the municipal level may  assist the government to  balance its budget but it prevents the property owner and  the municipality from balancing theirs. This, in itself, is  a slippery move but the attempt to place the blame on  the local governments is  reprehensible.  See our  Bargain Shelf  for good buys  NDP Bookstore  An incidence of wilful damage was reported involving a Sechelt resident  who had the windshield of  his Volkswagen Beetle  broken by a balloon full of  waler which was thrown at  the car. This happened on  Highway 101 near Field Road.  Anyone having information  with regard to this incident  is asked to contact the  R.C.M.P. in Sechelt, Tele-  hone 885-2266.  A break-in was reported on  April 9 involving a summer  trailer on Lagoon Road. No  mention was made of anything  having been stolen.  Vandalism lo the Pender  Harbour Community Hall  was also reported on April 9,  Three windows were broken.  On April II, the owner of  Sunshine G.M., Sechelt  reported wilful damage to  thc police. Hc said that there  had been several incidences  of hub caps and mirrors  having been stolen during  the last couple of weeks,  and aerials have been snapped  off cars.  Vandalism was reported on  April 12 on the Frances  Peninsula. Mail boxes were  knocked over.  A report of break and entry  into the old service station at  Halfmoon Bay was reported  on April 12. Nothing appears  to have been stolen.  On April 13, a rock was  thrown through the upstairs  window of Cheryl Ann Developments. Ltd. in Sechelt.

In other news of developers,  re-zoning applications and the  Village of Sechelt, the matter  of the proposed lane exchange  in connection with Block V,  District Lot 304 (between Ebb  Tide and Neptune) was discussed. Alderman Thompson  reported that he had checked  this site together with Bob  Bull, and they both believed  that a cul-de-sac would be  preferable to taking part of  Lot 8. Other changes in the  proposed exchange of lane  allowances were also pending,  Alderman Thompson said,  and Bob Allen is to be asked  to draw up a plan so that the  proposal will be easier to  understand.  Mr. Roy reported to the  meeting that he had not had  time to prepare a grant  application to seek funding  for the study of the parking  problem in Sechelt. He will,  however, attend to this as  soon as possible, he said,  since the deadline for applications is April 30,1979.  Acting Village Clerk Ron  Gibbs told the assembly  that he had not had time to  prepare a report on the possible recovery of planning  costs from the developers.  These are presently paid by  the taxpayers from Council  funds since Planning Consultant Doug Roy is retained by  Council on an hourly basis. It  was pointed out at a previous  meeting that Mr. Roy was  spending a considerable  amount of time working with  the developers. Mr. Roy  commented at the Monday  meeting on the crazy number  of \ re-zoning applications  beits processed for a village  withy population of under  1,000. "How many of these  balloons will land and become  reality?" he wondered.  Mr. Roy also noted that  most of the developers are  of the absentee variety  living in West Sechelt, Davis  Bay or elsewhere rather than  in the Village itself. (In fact  the only developer who lives  in the Village is Len Van  Egmond who lives in Porpoise  Bay.)  A proposed addition to  The Dock for a car stereo  installation was discussed.  Mr. Roy reported that there  had been a deficiency of six  parking spaces when the complex was constructed and that  this had been agreed to with  the provision of a covenant  giving the easement between  the two buildings for access  to the rear of the property.  It was generally agreed that  a programme of lane dedication in this whole block  is needed. The following recommendation was approved:  Recommend that the Village  Clerk be authorized to issue  a zoning certificate to Fjord  Design and Construction  Ltd. for an addition to their  building on Lots 12 and 13,  Block 13, District Lots 303  and 304 in accordance with  their letter of March 28th,  1979, and attached plans, on  receipt of a written report  from the Planning Consultant that the By-law requirements have been met.

NCE UPON A TIME, in a land called British Columbia, there lived a man called Bill Bennett.  He wanted to be Premier of the fair land. So he thought, and thought, and thought and, finally,  came up with an idea. D "I will make promises," he said. ��� So he went out among the people of  the land and gave them promises. To some, he said he would improve their health care. Those who  lived on the land's largest island were guaranteed better ferry service to the mainland.  All this, and more, he promised. He even said to the people, "I will  freeze your taxes".    ���     Then Bill Bennett became Premier.     ���     He  increased everyone's income and sales taxes.  ���   He tripled the cost of  some people's car insurance.    D     Quadrupled the cost of staying in  a hospital. And doubled the people's bus fares. The people on the  :>pk  urjlt  island' found their ferry rates doubled. Overnight. He even charged  the British Columbians twice as much to go camping in their  land.   D    All in all, he increased people's taxes by 50 percent.*  All these payments left the people of the land with very  few coins in their purses to spend in the shops. Sad shop  keepers had to close their doors. Then Bill Bennett saw  it wasn't working out. So he  began to sell things. The  natural resources, three  ferry ships, a bus line,  one of the fair land's  largest food plants,  and a pile of other  things.    ���   All sold  to people who lived  outside the fair land.  ��� Sniirii   Dpptirtmcnt nf Pinnncc, Kiminriiil and Eninumic Heview.  Integrity in  government.  One more re-ason.  IOW, Bill Bennett wants to  'be Premier again.  He's out among the people.  And he's making more promises.  11fouVe  better on:  with the  NDP  L
