In the process  the forty-two diameter pipe was squashed to an oval shspe In  one of its sections. The pipe did not rupture since it is made of  pressurized creosoted wood spliced together to form a pipe that  will withstand a fair degree of stretching.  The area of the pipe that has to be repaired was dug out carefully from the sixty-foot high mudslide. The accumulation of  debris contained some big logs displaced by the mudslide onto  the pipe.  The slide was discovered by the water utility man whose  daily rounds take him by the road adjacent to the pipeline. A  Denley to  conference  specialist from town was brought in to repair this special type  of line since it requires a specialized knowledge to splice a  replacement section thst csn be fitted to the remaining pipe.  The flexibility of wood under stress such as was experienced  last week makes it preferable for such s pipeline but the art of  repairing that type of line is dying slowly and experts in thc art  are getting hard to find.  The Rainy River Valley feeds the Port Mellon water line with  thirty-two million gallons a day. The mill, however, had the  requisite material on hand to effect repairs. As of Saturday  morning the affected pipe had been repaired and the mill was  operating normally.  Repair work was necessary last week when a mud  slide damaged the water intake line for the Port Mellon Pulp Mill.

Hydro at a public meeting to be held Starch 31 in  the Madeira Pari Community Hall. The meeting, which will be  jointly sponsored by the Regional District and the Pender  Harbour Ratepayers, will also be attended by representatives  of the Environmental Land Use Committee, the government  agency which has approving responsibility for the line, and will  he covered by media.  According to Area A Director, Joe Harrison,' Hydro has now  received cabinet approval for all sections of the powerline  route except the one between the proposed Malaspina substation near the Kleindale High School and Cape Cockburn on  Nelson Island. All of the three routes across the northern peninsula originally outlined in Volume I of the Beak Report are still  under active consideration by Hydro, in addition to the new preferred route south of Sakinaw Lake as outlined in Hydro's new  Special Report on the Sechelt Peninsula.  "It is important that residents from all of the areas affected  by possible routes, which include Irvines Landing and the  south end of Sakinaw, the mid-Sakinaw area, the area between  Sakinaw and Ruby Lakes, the Earles Cove area and the West  Lake area on Nelson Island, come to this meeting prepared to  discuss the problems they see in their areas," says Ratepayers  Secretary Howard White. "While Hydro seems very closed to  any suggestions about moving the powerline out of the north  peninsula, they do seem quite open to any input we have on the  selection of this particular segment. It is quite possible the area  finally chosen will be the one that puts up the least opposition,"  White added.  Puchalski  easy winner  in trustee  election  Any parties wishing further  information on the meeting  are asked to contact Howard  White at 883-2730 or Joe Harrison at 883-9958. The Ratepayers are asking for help in  preparing briefs on all aspects  of the powerline question,  including such major alternatives as the Reception  Point route and the Jervis  tajntet nm&Mlie use of AnuW-  cides, and the need for the  line.  White is particularly excited about the effect that the  new decision to ban the use  of the herbicide 2,4,5-T in the  U.S. may have on the campaign to have its use stopped  in B.C.  "It has now been accepted  that 2,4,5-T is causing miscarriages in pregnant women  who become exposed to the  herbicide and state authorities have ordered its use  halted," White says.

By Howard White  Those who watch C.B.C.  television's excellent public  affairs series The Fifth Estate may have already met  Trudy Finlay, the new nurse  at the Pender Harbour Health  Centre. Last year the series  did a segment on Canada's  foreign aid programme with  a very interesting episode  covering the work of CIDA  and CUSO in Ghana. Canadian personnel there were  trying to get the Ghanans to  use good disease-free water  by establishing clean community wells, but as a CUSO  nurse explained to interviewer Eric Mailing, the job  was not as easy as it seemed.  When the clean water finally  was made available, many  older tribesmen refused to  drink it because they didn't  like the taste. There was  nothing to it, in their view.  They missed the good old  mud and germs.  The CUSO nurse who told  this curious story was Trudy  Finlay, who took over duties  as the Pender Ginic's full-  time nurse last week.  Trudy, an R.N., was born  and raised in Agsssiz, B.C.  She attended the University  of British Columbia as a  music student, earning her  Bschelor's Degree with a  voice major. She had originally intended to teach, but  after finishing her degree  decided to take up nursing  and finished her training at  Royal Columbian Hospital  in New Westminster in 1972.  After graduation she spent  six months st the Williams  Lake Hospital specializing  in pediatrics and then put in  two years nursing at the general hospital in Chilliwack  before going to Ghana as a  CUSO volunteer.  If things are a bit quieter  on her new job than they were  at the medical clinic she used  to operate by herself in Ghana  Trudy won't complain. After spending three-and-a-  half  years   in  the   African  country, sometimes with  her nearest white neighbour  twelve miles distant, she is  ready for a different sort of  challenge.  "Before 1 came here I had  a chance to take over a nursing post in the north where I  would have been on my own  with no doctor around,"  she says. The government  tried to persuade her to take  the job because they felt  she was the only person available who could handle it.  "I turned it down because  I'd had enough of that sort of  thing for a while, but I still  couldn't bring myself to go  back into a hospital." When  she heard about the Pender  Harbour Clinic from the nursing association it seemed just  the sort of thing she was  looking for.  In addition to the overwork  and isolation she encountered working in the wilderness clinic in Ghana, Trudy  found the work somewhat  frustrating. The preference  for foul water wasn't the  only unhealthy local attitude  she had to fight. The leading  killer amongst children  there was measles and  because the native women  believed a child with measles  would die if it fell asleep,  they often put pepper or chicken manure in a sick child's  eyes to keep it awake, sometimes    causing     blindness.  They also refused to wash a  child with measles, and when  they did wash a baby the practice was to alternately plunge  it into a basin of hot water,  then cold. In face of these age-  old beliefs the white medicine lady's teaching didn't  always win ready acceptance,  and often cases would come  into the clinic only when all  else had failed and the patient was beyond help.  She suspects medicine men  sometimes sent patients over  when they knew death was  near, just so whiteman's  medicine would take the  blame. In trying to build  people's confidence it didn't  help that the clinic was frequently unable to get basic  supplies and the vaccines they  gave had often lost their  effectiveness in transit.  Trudy thinks small-scale  CUSO-type foreign aid projects are more effective than  the massive projects undertaken by CIDA and she is  proud of the fact she eventually put herself out of work by  training two African nurses to  take over, but after labouring  three-and-one-half years  under CUSO's policy of paying  volunteers according to native  pay scales, she is looking forward to being back on Canadian wages. II has also been  a long time since she had a  piano in her home and she  misses her music, so she is  delighted at thc level of musical interest she has so far  encountered in her new community. She has already been  approached to give piano  lessons and would like to,  although she feels it's too  late to start this season.  How long will she stay?  A few years anyway. Beyond  that she isn't certain. Sometime she would like to go back  to school and take up midwifery. But that's just an idea  and it could change ��� who  knows? Right now her  thoughts don't go much beyond the excitement she feels  for her new job and new  community.    | Delivered to EVERY address on the Sunshine Coast every Tuesday  mmt 2.

Its  purpose was to go over the 1979-80  budget for School District #46 and it  would seem that the representatives of  local government were by and large satisfied that the concern of the School Board  is to provide quality education locally  and satisfied that such education had to  be paid for, and that the expenditures  being made locally for education were  justified.  This said, however, it is instructive to  look at a letter addressed "to all Mayors  and Elected Municipal Officers" by David Kendal, President of the B.C. School  Trustees Association. It would be quite  fair to say that the B.C. School Trustees Association has never been known to  bc a particularly radical organization and  with this in mind the facts and figures  luiiveyed in Kandal's letter take on added impact.  He begins by quoting a survey conducted by Koenig and Gowdy of the University of Victoria which showed that only  15.6% of the taxpayers felt that they  received good value for their federal  tax dollars; 39.2% said that they felt  they got good value from the provincial  government; while 51% felt that they  received full value from local government for their municipal and tax dollars.  Kandal goes on: "These statistics are  encouraging because they come about,  not as a result of, but despite provincial  government influence, despite provincial  government officials constantly holding  local governments up to public ridicule."  Kandal pointed out that in the last five  years the cost of the Basic Education  Programme has risen 75%, set by the  The Choice off Alternates  A reader and a voter in Regional  District C phoned this week to discuss the  method by which Alternate Directors are  chosen for the Regional Board. The substance of the gentleman's point of view  was that with the choice of an Alternate  being left entirely in the hands of the  Director it is entirely possible that a  seat on the Board can come to be filled  by someone who could not get elected.  This is undemocratic.  Why, he asked,  shouldn't someone  seeking election to the Regional Board  be requested to name his Alternate at  the time of his own election. That way  they could be elected as a team much as  the American President is chosen. A  Vice-President in the American system is  little else but an alternate President and  his name is on the ballot at election time.  If the practice was followed by aspiring  Regional Directors the public could exercise some additional and justifiable control over the choice of their representatives.  . .from trie files of Coast News  -tar  5YEARSAGO  Fred Kirkham of Reed Road will  be one hundred years old on March 6.

Meanwhile the  provincial government's own share of the  Basic Education Programme has gone  up only 45%.  This is the same provincial government  which has just issued stern instructions  to local governments to keep their  spending down and which has proudly  announced an annual surplus ��� of our  money ��� of $145 million for this year.  This is the same government which has  amassed a total of $316,700,000 in the  past three years ��� of our money. This  represents an extra tax levy of $436  for every household in B.C.  There is no great secret to the accumulation of governmental surpluses. If the  government consistently shifts more of  its financial reponsibilities to local  governments and the individual property  owner for such massive expenditures as  education, as the President of the B.C.  School Trustees Association has pointed  out, then it will amass a financial surplus  on its own books.  It bears saying again and again that  government is not a business. It is not in  Ihe ; i; -making field. These huge surpluses are not, as Bennett would have us  believe, an evidence of business-like  administration, but a misappropriation of  public funds.

Musings  John Burnside  The events on the world  stage are unbelievably grim.  What's taking place in the Far  East, the Middle East, and in  Africa is casting an unavoidable shadow over our lives.  The 'balance of terror' which  .has been the tactic which has  held us back from global  conflict since the end of the  Second World War may be  becoming an obsolete tactic  in the eyes of the world  powers. We have been told  that immense stockpiles of  nuclear weapons have been  built up solely to ensure that  no nuclear war will ever take  place, despite the evidence of  history that new weapons are  inevitably put to use if they  are available.  The root cause of the next  war, if there is indeed to be  one, will be the root cause of  almost all wars. Economic  gain of resources or retention  of resources. The stage has  been set by the enormity with  which the finite and nonrenewable resources have  been squandered in the last  few decades. The United  States of America have not  been self-reliant in the matter  of the resources with which to  fuel their vaunted standard of  living for many years and  now with more and more  industrialized nations pressing for resources and with the  Third World or storehouse  nations, with the exception of  Canada, beginning to question the monopolization of  their resources by the rich and  powerful, a squeeze is beginning to be felt affecting the  basic availability of the raw  materials of power and wealth,  and it would seem that the  evidence available is pointing  not towards co-operative  use of the world's resources  but a competition for them  waged with nuclear weapons.  In a recent article in the  Georgia Straight, noted Vancouver journalist Ben Metcalfe  writes: "Diplomatic and military correspondents of the  serious international press  (which essentially excludes  Canada's three main national  newspaper monopolies) have  lately discerned a variety of  subtle and not-so-subtle  signs in United States/NATO  policies and postures indicating that the nuclear war option now has been embraced  and awaits only its proper time  to ripen." Metcalfe quotes  U.S. Defence Secretary Harold Brown in a recent interview in the Washington Post  as stating that there is an  increasing likelihood of the  United States and the Soviet  Union "being dragged into a  nuclear war" for the sake of  resources. Brown was speaking in the light of threats to  the traditional United States  resource colonies such as Iran,  the Middle East generally,  and Africa.  The thrust of Metcalfe's  article is that there has been a  recurring series of leaks indicating that the United States  could fight and win a nuclear  war, that the option of nuclear war has crossed the  threshold of 'thinkability'.  He points out that a major  campaign has been undertaken to re-acquaint the American people in the ways of  civil defence and that even in  good old Canada Defence  Minister Barney Danson has  created an elite Special Force  out of the First Airborne  Regiment, equipped with riot  vehicles, water cannon,  manacles and truncheons to  'pacify' Canadian cities in the  eventofnuclearwar.  '  Now, we have lived on the  brink of disaster worldwide  for over thirty years and perhaps the latest international  manifestations will pass leaving us safely still astride the  tightrope of terror, but things  do not remain the same indefinitely and if the major  world powers are intent on  fighting over the world's  dwindling resources rather  than pooling their technological expertise in the search  of replacement possibilities  then the world as we know it  may be accelerating to its end.  Slings & Arrows K  tl  George Matthews  V  iiajin  Over fifty years ago 'the  war to end all wars' was  fought in the trenches of northern France and nothing that  has happened in my lifetime  indicates that the species  called man has found an other  method than dreadful slaughter to settle  his  disputes.  The technological developments that have taken place in  that fifty years and the means  of waging war that we have  seen developed since, would  indicate that nothing has or  can prepare us for what might  happen in another global  conflict. It is this century,  let us remember, that has  brought the techniques of total  warfare against non-combatants to a high art and the  means with which such a war  would be waged are beyond  our wildest imaginings.  A generation ago in August,  1945, two single bombs levelled two separate Japanese  cities. By the standards of  todays technology those  bombs are primitive. A devastating range of horrors have  been developed from the nuclear bomb to the neutron  bomb whose function seems to  be nothing less than total  depopulation of its target  leaving the man-made structures intact after the men,  women, and children associated with them have been  destroyed.  In some strange dream have  we lived while our leaders  moved on with these dreadful preparations and if, in  fact, the day is approaching  when these unspeakable  forces are unleashed on our  species and our world, the  survivors, if there are any  outside of the luxurious bunkers built to protect the elite,  will not even have the comfort  of telling themselves that they  were surprised. We have  bickered and fought amongst  ourselves on a myriad of  issues whilst the great issue  of survival of our species may  have gone by default.  Last ' Wednesday night,  the C.B.C. aired its television  movie production, Drying up  the Streets, and it apparently  survived the unfortunate  conflict with As Yon Like It  and Charlie's Angels well  enough to have caused some  interest and controversy.  The Canadian production,  starring Don Francks and  Sarah Torgove, "examines  the ugly and cruel world of  drugs and prostitution".  Francks portrays a middle-  aged, dropped out, former  Simon Fraser University  chemist whom we meet as he  is withdrawing from heroin  addiction. From this auspicious introduction, we are  guided by our new friend on  an Orpheus-like descent into  the bizarre and depraved  underworld of drugs, prostitution and pornography in  Toronto, on a search for his  teenage daughter.  The guided tour of the  seamy side of Toronto shows  some brutally frank scenes of  strip joints, whore houses,  child pornography, perverted  sex, snuff films, heroin  factories and pill popping  orgies. The chemist, who  seems quite at home amongst  these horrors, finally finds his  daughter, now leading an  upright life in a foster home,  but chooses not to communicate with her. He finds instead a surrogate daughter  and spends most of the film  trying to save her from  exploitation and heroin addiction. In the end he saves the  girl, helps bust the bad  guys, and returns, renewed,  from his underworld odyssey.  As far as production is  concerned, this made-for-  T.V. film confirms the fact  that the C.B.C. can produce  televison drama as well as  anyone. The acting, sets,  camera work and direction are  superb. As technically fine as  it is, however, the film does  contain some serious and disturbing flaws, and herein  lies the source of the controversy this production has  already created. Instead of an  objective study of some sordid facts of life, the film  chooses to be didactic and  moralizing. Instead of a serious attempt to explore the  complexities of human character and emotions, it chooses  to be simplistic and shallow.  The characters are thinly  disguised stereotypes. The  university professor for example comes across as a caricature of Timothy Leary. The  police officer never emerges  as anything beyond a clean-  cut Beast of Buchenwald.  The baddies are all very, very  bad, the goodies very, very  good and those in the middle  are at least struggling for  righteousness. The characters  are, in short, melodramatic,  right down to the black pimp  in the white hat who drives a  Cadillac.  There are features of the  film which are truly disturbing. For example, spurious  connections are made between  protest movements of the  Sixties, encounter group  participants, marijuana smokers, child pornography  freaks, heroin addicts, sodomites, pimps and gangsters;  as if all of these things were a  part of the same thread of  aberrant behavior. Oversimplified patterns of behavior  are developed. First comes  marijuana smoking, then  pill popping, then L.S.D.  trips, leading right towards  heroin addiction, lust, avarice,  greed, child pornography and  finally to the ultimate depravity, snuff films. Certainly  these are forms and degrees  of deviant behavior, but to  imply that there is s direct  causal relationship between  these depraved activities is  naive and even dangerous.  From a civil liberties point  of view, the film portrays a  clean-cut cop who is so morally self-righteous that his  flagrant abuses of the main  characters' rights are not only  glossed over but condoned as  necessary elements of the  criminal justice system.  I will admit to some ambivi-  lant feelings about the programme. On the one hand, I  found it fascinating and entertaining; while on the other,  the naive moralizing was  disturbing. The film is clearly  more didactic than dramatic  and, as with any device that  spends more time lecturing  than "exploring, it ultimately  fails.  Reaction to the programme  was immediate. It was discussed in the House of Commons on Friday and has been  discussed widely by television  viewers. It won't be long before some self-righteous citizen insists it be shown to  every high school kid in the  province. When it's shown  again, it should get a wider  audience because of the publicity.

We are featuring evening programmes of  what are bound to be highlight  performances, and well worth  the effort of attending.  On Monday, March 12 (see  our ad for times and places)  we present the largest Speech  Arts and Drama Section of  the Festival to date, culminating with the evening performances of three high school  plays. Come and see what  excitement these young people generate. Following that,  on Tuesday evening at the  Band Festival, bands from  Powell River and Squamish  join all of our local bands in a  crescendo of sound that along  with the wit of our adjudicator,  Mr. Fred Turner, will leave  you talking about this evening  for weeks.  On Wednesday evening we  feature the top pianists and  vocalists of our area, along  with a popular feature that is  exclusive to our festival,  which shows the spirit of our  community, the "Age Sixty-  Five or Over Vocal Solo"  category. A fun evening.  On Thursday evening,  something special. The "Musical Comedy or Light Opera  Vocal" category, choral  groups, and a new item in our  Festival this year, the possibility of a Championship  Playoff in Senior Piano.  Suspense with top entertainment on the last evening of the  Festival. I've been talking  about the evenings, but you  will find interesting and thrilling performances all day,  every day at the Festival.  But the Festival really  begins this week on Thursday and Friday, the 8th and  9th of March. Dancing, at  the Twilight Theatre, with a  flashy evening programme of  dance, also at the Twilight.  The Dance Festival has developed into our largest section, with 230 entries from Nanaimo, Coquitlam, Burnaby,  Vancouver, North Vancouver  and the Sunshine Coast.  This section of the "Festival  has become a boost for local  businesses, as hundreds of  performers, parents, teachers  and adjudicators arrive, many  of them having to stay overnight, patronizing motels,  restaurants and shops in a  holiday mood.  The success of the Dance  Section of the Festival is due  in large part to two public  spirited people who are not  even members of the Committee. Mr. and Mrs. Booth-  royd, owners of the Twilight  Theatre, who along with their  son, organize and facilitate  the logistics of this complicated programme, with its costumes, dressing rooms,  music, P.A. systems, back-.,  stage  communications,   and  Highway  Complaint  Editor:  This is a copy of the letter I  have sent to Alex Fraser, the  Minister of Highways:  Dear Sir:  On February 19, two people  who are very close to my  family almost lost their  lives. Their truck plunged into  Trout Lake on Highway 101,  after swerving to avoid a car  that was out of control, due to  the black ice on the highway.  The black ice condition occurs  regularly and people who are  not familiar with the highway  have no forewarning. I am  appealing to your department  to post proper signs warning  of the dangerous ice conditions, and to maintain regular  salting through the winter  months.

Not to  mention foregoing the bread  and butter revenue of their  theatre while we are using  their facilities. Special thanks  from the Committee and the  community.  I also need to thank you and  the editors of the other  Sunshine Coast newspapers  for your support of this  worthy community effort.  If some people think  that young people are all  going to the dogs these days,  all they have to do is come to  the Festival to see that they  are not. It can be a revelation  if you have not attended the  Festival before. Don't forget,  all performances are open to  the public.

An open and shut case for  heating your home with wood.  Considering thc cost of oil. gas and electric heat  these days, it's easy to see why hundreds of thousands  of homeowners across North America have turned to  wood heating.  It's more economical (it can trim   j \'v'-/.;:.'; '  SOtt ormoreolTyourheatingbill). '  Wood smells and sounds as good as  it bums. And it's one form of energy  that's still growing.  But what do you bum wood  in to gct the most heat out of it?  We'd like to suggest a Fisher  Stove.  The Fisher's unique two-step combustion chamber  recirculates wood gases back into the flames, resulting in  more heat and fewer ashes. Its patented spin draft controls  and virtually airtight construction mean you can regulate  how much heat it puts out. And because it's made from  carefully welded, heavy plate steel, it will give you years  of remarkable heating efficiency.  We have a variety of Fisher Stove models to choose from.  So come in soon and find oul what makes a Fisher a Fisher.  Case closed. .�����,..  An idea Canada u warming up lo.  J&C ELECTRONICS  Cowrie St   Sechell.

Sweat a Hard Cargo      Part I  In 1906, Fitz St.John, in  company with a number of  others, formed a new union  among the lumber-handlers,  the majority of whom, as  noted, were Indians from the  Capilano Reserve. They  decided to affiliate with the  International Workers of the  World, more commonly known  as thc Wobblies, then in the  first flush of their radical  crusade. They became the  Lumber Handler's Union,  IWW No. 502 and elected a  man called George Walker as  Iheir president. St.John  became secretary and himself  designed the local's insignia,  a crossed pcavcy and crowbar. For the first years of its  existence, the union held its  meetings in the Native Hall  of the main North Vancouver  Indian Reserve. It maintained  the spark. For the rest of the  men who laboured on the  docks, there was no representation whatsoever. It was  'take things as they are or  go hungry!' until 1912. There  is no record of other organizing activity on thc waterfront  between 1903 and that date.  Paddy McDonagh came  round thc Horn from his  native Glasgow in 1910, an  arduous journey that took  seventy-two days. The ship's  MMMMMMM*  Pages  from a Life-Log  Peter Trower  eventual destination was New  Zealand and he had signed-  on for the duration of the  voyage but the ordeals encountered so far had soured  him on further sailing. This  place called Vancouver looked  a likelier bet. Quitting the  ship, he sought employment  around the docks. Still clearheaded and active at ninety-  two, he remembers those  grim, early days, lining-up  hopefully for the chance to  sweat a hard cargo in some  rusty hold when safety-  regulations were unheard-of  and the siderunners drove you  like bosuns with rope's-ends  of invective. For two years,  he eked out a haphazard  living along with thc rest until  thc International Longshoremen's Association was established in 1912 and the men  once more had a voice. After  this "things got a little  better". Instead of having to  show up at whatever ungodly  hour a boat happened to make  port, the crews were now  picked the previous evening.  Paddy still keeps among his  mementoes his original ILA  membership-book and pin.  The    new    union    merged  almost immediately with the  still-flourishing Lumber-  Handlers. While the merger  were being negotiated, Fitz  St. John went to Chemainus  to prevent the stevedore  companies making an issue of  his leadership. He returned  when matters were consolidated. McDonagh worked his  way up to winch-driver, a  trade he was to stick with for  most of his forty-six years on  the docks and was instrumental in getting the unsafe rope-  slings then used for cradling  loads, replaced with steel  cables. He and Fitz St. John  were well acquainted and  often worked the same boats.  Hc recalls a humourless  incident that occurred when  the West Indian was side-  running. McDonagh was running the double-winches  and St. John was giving him  hand-signals from the hold.  It was quite dark below and  St. John's complexion tended  to become one with the background, making him very difficult to see. He tried using a  whistle for a time but a loading-dock is not the quietest  place on earth and this was  none too satisfactory either.

He disappeared during the  lunch-break and returned  wearing a gleaming white  dress-shirt and gloves. "Can  you see me now, mon?"  Always it was tough but some  times were tougher than  others. Paddy recollects one  ship that came in with rails  for the PGE at Squamish in  one hold and machinery for  the Ocean Falls pulpmill in  another. As was the custom  then, he and Ave other men  were sent upcoast with the  boat to help unload it. They  received some extra compensation for this so the  money was reasonable-  enough but the accommodations left much to be desired.  For the duration of the three-  week job they were compelled  to sleep on straw on the poop-  deck in the company of three  pigs. Though it rained constantly, there was no provision  made for them to dry their  clothes. The longshoremen  were obliged to work in the  same sopping gear, day after  day. Hard-earned dollars in  hard-luck times. But things  were rugged all over then for  the working-stiff. Sure, a man  could always try another racket, logging maybe. But from  what you heard tell, things  there were rougher yet and  they killed a good many more  men. No union either. So you  stayed on the beach,  Two years after the formation of the ILA, Canada found  herself embroiled in the first  World War. The distant rumble of that conflict and the  resultant upsurge of shipping-  activity to meet its bloody  needs took precedence over  other matters for a time.  Although the general state of  affairs on the waterfront was  a long way from good, things  had been improved somewhat  and it was, after all, a lot  better than the trenches.  Paddy McDonagh remembers  a minor-strike among the  lumber-handlers in 1916 but  it was evidently of short-duration. Hiring-practices altered  slightly during this period.'  A list of work available was  now posted at the union hall  and the men were now able to  study this before proceeding  to the dock of their choice. At  this point, the men were  picked by the same line-up  system except that a business-  agent was now present to see  that foremen did not start  choosing crews before the  appointed starting-time.  This varied between 7:00 and  8:00 on the day shift. There  were also line-ups at 1:00 and  5:00 p.m. Jimmy Greer, who  started on the docks in 1917,  recalls the rate then as  being 80* per hour  straight-time and $1.20 overtime. The men worked ten-  hour shifts and coffee-breaks  were strictly a thing of the  future. National Registration  was then in effect and any  man without a card was forbidden to work under risk of  severe penalties to both himself and his employer. Greer  remembers: "There was an  Film Society  By Allan J.Crane  There were sixty-eight  people at Lea Vacancea de  Mr. Hulot, although it seemed  that the audience was larger  because audiences for Modem  Timet, Romeo and Juliette  and S'/t averaged less than  forty. There were two people  who obviously found the film  tedious since they left about  halfway through the film.  The general reaction, however, was overwhelmingly  positive. Thirty ballots were  completed and only two rated  the film less than "Very  Good". One viewer remarked:  "Hulot dragged a bit but  excellent anyway." Others  commented on the film with  remarks such as "Super",  "Entertaining", and "Light-  hearted", and "Amusing".  Reaction was also generally  favourable  toward  the  two  short films screened, Disney's  1936 cartoon, Mickey's Grand  Opera and the 1977 National  Film Board production Bead  Game. Seventy percent of  the ballot rated Mr. Hulot's  Holiday "Excellent", twenty-  two percent "Very Good",  four percent "Good", and  four percent "Ordinary",  giving an audience reaction  index of 88.5.  The Film Society's next  presentation is Peter Glen-  ville's wonder film Becket.  The film is based on Annou-  ilth's play and it depicts the  relationship between King  Henry II and Thomas, Archbishop of Canterbury. Peter  O'Toole plays the role of the  King and Richard Burton that  of the Archbishop. The film is  scheduled to play on Tuesday,  March 13 at 9 p.m. at the  Twilight Theatre. There will  be an assessment of the film  in next week's column.  Sunshine Coast Festival  The 1979 Sunshine Coast  Music, Drama and Dance  festival gets underway this  week when the Programme of  Dance Competitions takes  place at the Twilight Theatre  on Thursday and Friday,  March 8���9. There will be  three sessions on Thursday,  at 10:30 a.m., 2:30 p.m., and  7.-00 p.m. On Friday there will  be two sessions in the Dance  Section of the Festival, at  8:00 a.m. and 12:30 p.m.  Admission for the public  will be 25* for each session  incident about this time when  a longshoreman was taken off  an Australian ship berthed at  Pier A. Evidently he had not  complied with some part of  the Military Service Act and  was taken in charge. The men  working the ship walked off in  protest. As far as I can recollect, this happened in the a.m.  The employers wanted the  work to proceed and at 1:00  some men other than ILA  members showed up to continue work on the ship. The  Australian crew, I suppose at  the request of the ILA, objected to these men and the Captain decided to pull away from  the pier and laid in the stream  until the following morning  when the ILA men returned  to work."  To be continued  and 50* for the entire programme. Participants are requested to arrive at least  fifteen minutes prior to dance  time.  Other competitions will be  held next week with the  Speech Arts and Drama  being held on Monday, March  12. The initial sessions will be  held in the Elphinstone Band-  room at 9:15 a.m. and two  other sessions in the Elphinstone Auditorium at  1:15 p.m and 7:00p.m.  In the Music Section of the  Festival, the Band Competition will be held on Tuesday,  March 13, in two sessions in  the Elphinstone Auditorium  at 1:15 p.m. and 7:00 p.m.  The Piano and Vocal Competitions will be held in five  sessions on Wednesday,  March 14 and Thursday,  March 15. On Wednesday, the  sessions will be held at 1:15  p.m. and 7:00 p.m. On Thursday, the times of the sessions  will be 9:15 a.m., 1:15 p.m.,  and 7:00 p.m. All sessions in  the Elphinstone Auditorium.

Chairman of the Festival  Committee, Peter Prescesky,  paid particular tribute to the  work done to assist the committee by Ray Boothroyd of  the Twilight Theatre.  KUiiighom n  ^   Astrology  ByRteFIHngham  Week Commencing! March 5.  General Notes! Mars, planet  of action, opposes Saturn,  planet of restriction, indicating a brief period of delays,  frustrations and set backs.  Recently started projects  may face unexpected snags.  Advice is to show patience  and hold on for inevitable  burst of fresh energy. Foolish  persons will charge around  achieving very little. The wise  will simply wait.  The following prognostications point to the areas where  self control will be needed.  ARIES (March 21-Aprll 19)  There's frustration behind  the scenes. What you started  in secret may have slowed  down too soon. Advice is to  put aside schemes and come  out into the open. Inspiration  will return afresh. Matters  linked to hospitals or institutions may face delays. Expect to make new friends  and acquaintances this month.  TAURUS (April 20-May 20)  Long-range plans, hopes  and wishes face temporary  hold ups. Resist urge to scrap  future programmes. If you're  prepared to wait, solutions  will arrive. Those involved  with groups, clubs, societies  or committee work must show  patience and understanding.  Companions' behaviour may  be disappointing. Prepare for  increased popularity with  superiors.  GEMINI (May 21-June 21)  Matters related to position,  career or public standing  bring passing anxieties.  Pushing recent success is a  present waste of energy.  Wise Geminis will forget fame  or prestige for a few days.  Employers, bosses and those  in authority will say 'no'  to your original ideas. Looks  like pleasant, long-distance  communications are for you.  CANCER (June 22-July 22)  Your philosophy, beliefs or  ideas are about to be tested.  Others demand proof of your  convictions. Temptation is to  force the truth down the  throats of the unenlightened.  Advice is to keep opinions  private and offend no one.  There's news of delays far  away. Long awaited visit may  have to be postponed. Borrowing money or equipment  becomes easier this month.  LEO (July 23-Aug.22)  Delays and frustrations are  linked to other people's  money and possessions.  Getting what you want from  close associates is impossible  this week. Even loved ones are  stingier than usual. Put aside  all documents related to tax,  insurance, loans or shared  expenses. Believe it or not,  relations with marriage partner or mate improve this  month.  VIRGO (Aug.22-Sept.22)  Recent negotiations or  dealings with partners face  temporary frustrations.  Someone you were relying on  may have to back down from  commitment. Sign no new  contracts or agreements till  next week. Meanwhile, reassure loved one who is feeling tense and irritable. Work-  scene  atmosphere   becomes  more relaxed this month.  LIBRA (Sept.23-Oct.23)  Employment and health  matters face short-lived delays. Trying to get things moving on the job brings boredom  and doubt. Sit back and let co-  doubt. Sit back and let coworkers do all the complaining. As usual, health upsets  are linked to anxiety and  stress. Medical appointments  may have to be postponed.  Be glad that new social whirl  starts this month.  SCORPIO (Oct.24-Nov.22)  Social activities, pleasures  and amusements grind to a  temporary halt. Responsibilities catch up with you again.  Advice is to stay home, keep  promises and work on commitments. Flirting with that special someone brings results  next week. Meanwhile, save  your energy. Those with children now have to share their  frustrations. The desire to  beautify living space is felt  this month.  SAGITTARIUS (Nov.23-  Dec.21)  Recent domestic activity  slows down. It's time to take a  break from household bustle.  Those in the middle of decorating or remodelling may have  to wait for supplies or materials. Hard work resumes next  week. Und or real estate  transactions face delays.  Family members are stubborn. Local journeys and visits  are sources of upcoming happiness.  CAPRICORN (Dec.22-Jan.19)  Accent is still on frustrating, short-distance communications. Local visits, messages and phone calls won't  bring the results you expect.  Advice is to save non-essential  journeys till next week. Tty  a night with the phone off the  hook. Drive carefully next  weekend. You'll soon be in the  mood to buy quality items,  clothes and pictures for your  room.  AQUARIUS (Jan.20-Feb.18)  Venus in your sign says it's  your turn to spruce up appearance, change that hairstyle and buy the clothes that  will enhance your good looks.  Personality becomes charming, irresistible during the  next three weeks. Meanwhile,  have patience with financial  delays. Cash transactions  should be checked for accuracy. Buy nothing mechanical  till next week.  PISCES (Feb.19-Mar.20)  Although two-year action  cycle has started, you'll  have to face temporary setbacks for a few days. Looks  like envious associates are  determined to block your recent courageous moves. Advice is to ignore the opposition. Believe that you now  have the energy to overcome  the obstacles which have held  you back. Meanwhile, secret'  love affairs will tempt the adventurous and lonely,  Meditation  The Transcendental Meditation Society recently announced a new breakthrough.  "Forty research co-ordinators  have recently completed their  training and will co-ordinate  scientific research projects in  over twenty-five countries  throughout the world. This  research programme, which is  based on what the scientists  describe as a 'breakthrough  in research in consciousness',  is designed to make every  country self-sufficient in  research on the growth of  higher states of consciousness in the individual, and in  the scientific study of the rise  of national invincibility."  The local TM instructor,  Daryl Henn, will be giving a  seminar on Thursday, March 8  at 7:30 p.m. in Room 109 at  Elphinstone High School.

Seaside Rentals  885-2848 Book Review  An appreciation of Poe  By John Moore  I missed my anniversary. As  of February, I've been contributing to the Coast News for  a year; an appropriate time, I  think, to thank everyone on  the newspaper staff, and all  of you who've waded through  my often murky prose week  after week, for one of the  most interesting and rewarding years I've ever spent.  I've been wondering lately  what it was that ever made me  want to write. The other night  I discovered, by chance, part  of the reason. Looking for  something to read In bed, my  hand fell on a copy of Tales of  Mystery and Imagination by  Edgar Allan Poe. Halfway  though "The Pit and the  Pendulum" I realized why it  had been so long since I'd  read Poe in bed. Though he  no longer has the power to  make me sleep with the light  on, the way he did when I  was fourteen, Poe is still a  force to be reckoned with.  How else can you describe an  author whose slender stock of  verse helped fuel the fires of  genius in Charles Baudelaire  and generations of French  poets; an author whose  prose contains so many definitive "classic" examples of  short stories of various  genres: the Gothic horror  tale, the science-fiction story,  the detective story; an author  whose psychological and  philosophical observations  have been recognized as a  major influence on modern  thought?  What makes this all the  more remarkable is the fact  that Poe's verse ranges from  mediocre to bloody awful,  his prose is mannered and  exotic, his plots are often  clumsy, and his characterization frequently one-  dimensional. For all that, his  stories and poems remain  unforgettable and his influence on Western literature  so profound that even T.S.  Eliot (who would dearly  have loved net to have had to  consider Poe at all, since Poe  throws a hefty wrench into his  conception of culture), was  forced to confess, "One can't  be sure that one has not been  influenced by Poe". Truly, it's  almost impossible not to have  been influenced by Poe. In  spite of periodic condemnation of his grotesque style  and macabre subject matter,  his work has been anthologized and studied in the educational system where ever  the English language is read.  The reason is obvious:  teachers need material which  interests their students,  particularly young students  who are just being introduced  to literature. Poe succeeds  where even Shakespeare  can't muster a smattering of  polite applause.  Like most people, I discovered Poe in my early  teens. The secret of Poe's  persistent influence on Western literature lies, I suspect,  in the fact that for many  young people, this is the first  writer they encounter who  demonstrates the real power  of the language; not merely  its power to convey informa-  Vnxitip  JfooD*  DELI  and  HEALTH FOODS  GRIND  VOUR.  OWN  tion, but to create whole  worlds out of words, to totally dominate the sensibilities of the reader. His power  to do this stems precisely  from those extravagances  of style and subject for which  he has been chastened by the  critics. T.S. Eliot suggests,  rather condescendingly, that  Poe's popularity with adolescents stems from the fact  that "the forms which his  lively curiosity takes are those  in which a pre-adolescent  mentality delights: wonders of  nature and of mechanics and  of the supernatural, cryptograms and cyphers, puzzles  and labyrinths, mechanical  chess-players and wild flights  of specualtion". All this is  true, to some extent, but by  attempting to dismiss Poe as a  kind of intellectual toymaker  for arrested adolescents,  Eliot misses the point. It is  rather the hypersensitive  Roderick Usher, the vengeful Montresor, the guilt-  haunted narrator of "The  Tell-Tale Heart" and the  whole gallery of Poe's hysterical heroes with their violently disordered emotions  who make a direct and powerful appeal to adolescents who  feel themselves, like the characters, victims of emotional  forces beyond their control  or understanding.  Even now, when I know  from endless re-readings that  the sufferer is rescued from  the infernal Pit and that the  sailor survives, miraculously,  the descent into the Maelstrom, I can still re-read the  best of Poe again and again.  The secret of his staying  power is his depth. Despite  attempts to write him off as  a drug-addicted dissolute  hack (the most serious of  these by, ironically, Poe's  own literary executor, Rev.  Rufus W.Griswold), critical  examination reveals beneath  the surface of his writing the  same rich veins of theme and  symbol which characterize  the work of any great writer.  In.the few pages of "The Tell-  Tale Heart" Poe achieves  what it takes Dostoyevesky  the whole of Crime and  Punishment to equal. The  inexorably descending ra-  zor's-edge of Time in the "Pit  and The Pendulum" compares  favourably with Franz Kafka's  In the Penal Colony, another  tale in which the workings of  the universe are expressed in  terms of infernal machinery.  In many other tales, like  "William Wilson", in which a  man is dogged by his physical  double and moral obverse,  or "The Domain of Arnheim",  in which a wealthy eccentric  artist uses the natural landscape to create art on a grand  scale, Poe is the equal, if not  the direct antecedent of the  Argentine parable-maker,  Jorge Luis Borges.  But it is no more necessary  to read Poe in this kind of  critical depth to enjoy him,  that it is any other great  writer. Literary critics too  often imply that unless a work  is read with their own particular brand of minute scrutiny,  the reader is wasting his time.  This is academic bilgewater.  Any novel, story or poem that  can't be navigated without a  critical commentary isn't  worth the paper it's printed  on, much less the time it takes  to read. Critics are rather  like those odd kids who have  lo take everything apart to  see how it works. I'm not running down the analytical impulse; without it there'd be  nothing to understand in the  first place, but to appreciate  the wonderful effect of the  mechanical chess-player it is  far from necessary to know  exactly how the effect is  produced. For most of us, the  knowledge all too often  spoils the effect entirely.

Butor is one of the most important contemporary critics  of French literature and his  book is really about Baudelaire, but the French understood and appreciated Poe  before anyone in his own  country really did and Butor's  insights into Poe are very  penetrating.

Students  research TV  A small group from the  Elphinstone Student Research  Productions went to North  Vancouver recently to have a  look at the TV studios at Capilano College and Northwest  Cablevision. The students  learned a good deal from the  people at both places on how  to go about creating a proper  studio. Our studio at Elphinstone underwent drastic  changes after this trip as we  used the examples of more  sophisticated studios to improve our own. New ideas  such as black walls which  absorb extra light, diffuse  shadows and provide a contrast to the subject, carpeting,  and plants have made the  ESRP studio rather impressive  and improved our picture.  At Capilano we watched  some simple tapes being done  by individual classes learning  interview techniques. This  serves a dual purpose as it  gives the students more confidence in front of a camera as  well as learning from the interview itself.  At Northwest Cablevision,  they watched a more professional interview in the process  of being taped.

Her parents,  Robert and Clara Donley came  to Bargain Harbour in 1909  and camped on the beach near  the Japanese logging camp.  The following year they  bought Edgecombe Island  and moved over there, where  Ida's brother, Bill, was born in  1912 ��� the first white child  born in the Bargain. Harbour  area. In 1913 the family moved  to what became known  as Donley's Landing on the  eastern entrance to Pender  Harbour where Robert  Donley built a store, the first  of several.

Robert Donley must have  been a remarkable man. He'd  lost an arm in an explosion in  Detroit, yet he cleared land,  built cabins, wharves and  floats, and a large smokehouse. The smokehouse, in  which some of the bricks  salvaged from the older cannery in Bargain Harbour were  used, was for smoking herring; the kippers sold to such  far away places as Britain  and Australia attracted the  first Scottish settlers to the  area, who brought their families to live in the cabins built  up the hillside behind the  store.  Mr;. Higgs recalls many  interesting stories of the resourceful people who settled  this area; of her first train  ride on Anderson's logging  train; of the Reverend Pringle  from Vananda who kept a  small library In the store; of  the Gonzales of Irvings Landing; and many others.  Arrangements are being  made to have the videotape  shown in Pender Harbour on  March 15 ��� please watch  for details next week.

The eggs are traditionally packed in a soft sandy loam. Like most imports,  the condition of the pots, and the eggs, upon arrival depends  on their care in handling.  In Chinatown they have sold variously from $25 to $35; in  department stores, after a bit of dressing up, as much as  $75; and last August an American customer who bought  six of them, said they were $150 each.  In the last two years we have sold well over 200 at prices  ranging from $15 to $30. At the moment we have a stock of  good quality, priced from $28 to $33.95.  We are told that Chinese duck pots will soon be a thing of  the past. Damage of the pots, and contents, by modern  handling methods, makes pottery of this nature too expensive a vehicle for duck eggs ��� a Chinese gourmet dish.

They were not of course  intended personally, nor do I  think C.B.C. should not produce network variety shows in  Vancouver. It's just that I  think it's less than honest to  describe them as fulfilling the  C.B.C.'s promise to British  Columbians for programmes  which reflect and express the  diversity and quality of  West Coast life.  While I understand young  Rene's ambition to use the  C.B.C. as a launching pad to  stardom in the U.S. (it's a  Canadian tradition isn't it?),  and therefore the use of a  slick Hollywood format, do  we always have to copy the  Americans?  Inevitably we're going to  come up second best ��� a  country with such a relatively  small population just doesn't  have the market to generate  the revenue necessary for  such lavish productions. The  C.B.C. will tell you that it's  a fact of life that we're so  hooked on American formats  it's the only way to get an  audience ��� a mass audience,  that is. Whether this is true or  not, and media people who too,  other way round.  Basic to the discussion is  the premise that Canada is  different from the U.S. ���  not better or worse, but  fundamentally different.  We have evolved as a nation  along parallel but distinctly  different lines, we have a different form of government,  quite distinct environmental  differences, and a society  which is consciously trying to  create a complex ethnic mosaic. If this isn't the case, then  we're wasting our time because obviously we would in  many practical ways probably  be better off to join the U.S.  So as Canadians are a distinct North American species,  shouldn't our national television reflect our individuality  in innovative and creative  ways, rather than so often  depicting us as the poor relation trying to keep up with  the Jones?  It seems to me that there is  an alternative to joining them  if you can't beat them. If  you can't compete then do  something absolutely different so that comparisons are  impossible. That doesn't  mean leaving variety and sitcoms to the U.S. and concentrating on documentaries ���  the U.S. can do these well  I can't believe there is  Eclipse in Manitoba  2 minutes 16 seconds  New face at  the Co-op  A new face in the commcr-  tend to live in the very small only  one  acceptable  format  world of media people  un- and no other ways to present  doubtedly believe it, it's very news,   or  public  affairs   or  important that we challenge musical talent.

Quite apart from the age of  gurus coming fast to an end,  do we have to copy the Americans? If they still think news  is made credible by a "father  figure", that's their business.  It doesn't have to be carved in  stone for the rest of the world.  Maybe Canadians are more  sophisticated and are more  interested in the news than in  the messenger. If the Americans can afford, and they think  it necessary, to make stars of  their newsreaders and pay  them exorbitant salaries to cial fabric of Gibsons is that of  prove the credibility of the the newly-arrived manager of  news, that's their business, the Co-op, Robbie Robin-  C.B.C. surely would make son.  more sense and gain immea- Robinson was born and  surcablc support if they said raised in Ladysmith, B.C.  honestly ��� "Sorry guys, and most recently spent three  wc just can't afford it, and we years working for the Mid-Is-  have other priorities, such as land Co-op in Nanaimo.  improving the Canadian Robinson is married with  content of the news rather three children.

Obviously the  bright ideas just aren't getting through, or no one has the  courage to go for broke once  in a while.  Why, I ask myself, all this  expensive hype to produce  popular music shows? If the  performer or group is any  good surely that talent not  only can stand up by itself, but  is diminished by "cheap"  gimmickry, It seemed insulting, for example, not only to  Andre Gagnon in a recent  special, but to the audience as  well, to dress him up like a  dog's dinner and make him  act like a circus clown. An  hour just watching him play  would have seemed short to  his fans, but somehow with  all the flashing lights it  seemed endless and we never  did get down to really enjoying  the music.  If C.B.C. brass were  quoted   correctly,   Knowlton  uled back to back which would cipitation were recorded during the month of February,  1979, including 6.10 centimetres of snow. This is well  above the eighteen-year average for the month, of 13.00  centimetres.  The 4.86 centimetres of precipitation recorded between  8:00 a.m. on Saturday, February 24 and 8:00 a.m. Sunday, February 25, are the  highest single-day precipitation measures recorded  since October 16, 1975, when  4.98 centimetres were recorded. The record for one  day occurred on Christmas  Day 1972, when 6.35 centimetres were recorded.  The daytime high temperature was 9.5 degrees Centigrade and the overnight low  was minus 3 degrees Centigrade.  If it's important for Canadians to have their own talk  show to provide a showcase for Canadian thought,  art, talent, whatever, then  let's have one, and let's face  the fact that it may take  several years to build an audience. So what did C.B.C.  do ��� put it back to back with  Johnny Carson, not only  inviting comparisons with a  programme which should be  quite different, but at the  same time scrubbing "a loyal  audience for a programme of  old movies, something we  were doing well. We even  borrowed an American title  from Saturday Night Live.  Had we scheduled 90 Minutes  Live earlier in the evening,  we would undoubtedly have  attracted a larger audience  and at the same time given  Canadians the chance ��� if  they also wanted to watch  Johnny Carson ��� to recognize their own culture. Now  it's gone and again we are  convincing ourselves that  we're failures and again,  C.B.C. leaves behind bitterness,    lost    opportunities  and wasted talent.  How are we going to survive as Canadians if C.B.C.  continues to believe in the sort  of media mythology which  reflects us as second rate?  We need someone who has the  courage to pull the goalie  when we're two goals down  and we might just recognize  ourselves.  Its Spring Again!  Beachcombers  are back !  1971 - 1979    at the Reach!

ByS.DawnMcKlm  I love Nature and respect  her. I enjoy seeing her put on  a display for us. Everyday  things are worth more than a  passing glance, but she does  have a store house of "specials" ��� and "super-  specials".  I've seen the Mackenzie  River in the Arctic at the very  moment it broke in the spring  with all the noise and the  drama of a river rolling and  tumbling free after having  been sealed in ice for nine  months.  I've seen the harvest moon  slowly rise and fly above  the hills and treetops to make  a shimmering silver path over  the waters of Malispina Strait  to the very edge of the water  where I sat.  I've clocked the Equatorial  sun from the time the bottom  edge touched the water until  the huge red orb disappeared,  leaving us in darkness for the  next twelve hours. (It set in  two minutes.)  I've run across the mud flats  of the Bay of Fundy, racing  before the surging incoming  tides; and I've watched that  Bay empty as the water  flushed out again to leave the  two-mile flats bare once more.  But none of Nature's displays of energy, power,  beauty, delicacy, and perfection affected me as did the  solar eclipse this year over  Manitoba. Nothing I had  heard, read, or imagined  prepared me for this experience.  Jane and I chose to watch  the syzygy (I had to use that  word once so I may as well  get it over with) from a roadside five miles south of  Winnipeg. That would put the  city of Winnipeg behind us  with no opportunity for any  city vapours or smoke to block  our view.  The view was unlimited in  all directions ��� north, south,  east and west, and overhead. No trees. No buildings.  Just limitless horizon and the  clear sky far, far above.  I set up my tripod and  attached the camera. Jane and  I took turns looking through  the No, 14 arc welder's  glass I had. In the next car  (Minnesota licence) Rob and  Jim were using a pinhole  box. Not bad. But they preferred my glass.  The prairie was bleak and  the wind raw. The surface of  the side road where we had  parked was blown bare, and  the v/ind had whipped the  endless stretches of snow  into interesting sculptures.  Well-protected with an Arctic parka and fur mitts, I  was more or less comfortable.  Every time we went to set  the cameras or prepared to  take another picture, it was a  social event for camera buffs.  Ken warned us: cover your  lense or you'll ruin your  light meter. I insisted that  we should protect our cameras  from getting too cold: the  advance mechanism won't  work. Your film will break as  you try to advance it. And  Jane had to scold Sam, the  dog, to come away from the  tripods.  We recalled the words of  the narrator at the Planetarium. He said that no one  should be alone during total  eclipse. We all agreed that  this was loads more fun than  being alone, so we took pic  tures of each other.  We watched the progress  of the moon's advance over  the sun. Intermittently,  for approximately one and  one-quarter hours, we looked  through the dark glass. Our  fingers were almost freezing.  Our faces were windburned.  We sometimes returned to  our cars and warmed up.  Lib offered hot tea from her  thermos.  As we approached "total",  everyone grew quieter. The  sun would be totally eclipsed  here for two minutes and  sixteen seconds so I did  another mental rundown of  what I planned for those  brief moments, and then I  set my camera for a one-  second exposure to get one  shot of the sun's corona.  Up to about one minute  before total, or until ninety-  eight or ninety-nine percent  eclipse, it was "like watching  a turtle race".  Then all at once (literally)  the world grew darker with  shades of purple and blue.  In that eerie light the horizon  took on the colours of the rainbow, colours muted. The wind  whipped our clothes and  swept the snow before it.  The lights on a radio station  antenna field appeared in the  distance. It was dark. It was  time to look at the sun with  eyes unshielded.  The sun, in one last display of glory before being  completely shadowed by the  moon, shone in a burst of  silver on the edge of the  dark moon ��� the diamond  ring I Below the diamond,  we saw the dribble of liquid  jewels of light (beads).  By that time I realized  that I should be using my  binoculars. Where had I put  them? Yes. Here, around my  neck. There are the flames!  (They were cherry red rather  than hot red-orange as the  flames of a wood fire.)  The camera. Dash over.  Press the button. Back again  to using the binoculars.  The following includes some  of our exclamations ��� some  whispered, some gasped,  some shouted.  "This is a light show put  on by God."  "Delicate,"  "Wow!"  "Nobody ever said it would  be like this."  "Oh, you beautiful moon."  "There's Mercury."  "The corona is a burst of  light like a crown. The pictures always showed it like a  cotton cloud."  "I don't believe there  could be anything more  beautiful."  "That must be Mars."  "Can you believe we are  really here watching this and  being a part of all this?"  The diamond appears on  the right side of the moon.  A quick, last look to see the  beads. Then close your eyes.  And remember.

Elphie hosts tournament  Minor Hockey Association  By Kelly Hemy  A very strong Armstrong  team narrowly defeated  Little Flower Academy to  win the Senior Girls Provincial Basketball Tournament. The final score was  48-44. There were many ball  turnovers, two controversial  calls in a very hard-played  game, with each team holding  the lead at some point. The  audience was cheering  Armstrong on all the way to  victory. The rest of the teams  placed as follows: Elphie  12th, Fort St. James 11th,  Prince Charles 10th, Garibaldi 9th, G.M.Dawson 8th,  South Gate 7th, Kelly Road  6th, Grand Forks 5th, Revelstoke 4th, St.Thomas Aquinas  3rd, and LFA 2nd.  Teams came from all over  B.C. Kelly Road (Prince  George) and Fort St.James  flew to the tourney; the others  drove to Gibsons. Funds came  from School Boards, and the  local communities by way of  donations from local clubs,  bottle drives, dance-a-thons,  fish sales, light bulb sales,  chocolate sales, raffles, and  shoot-a-thons. All the girls  worked very hard to get here.  Many teams defeated up to  eight other teams in,., their  zones. They all agreed the  tourney was exceptionally  well run. The banquet, put  on by the Grad Committee,  was enjoyed by all. The after-  dinner talks were worth listening to. Comments about  refereeing ran the gamut,  from slack to the best refereeing the girls had ever  played with. Referee Larry  Mierau said, "It is easy to  see by the positive attitude of  the players, that they are here  because they deserve it, they  want it and they enjoy it".  The girls thought all teams  were sportsmanlike on and  off court, and very good competition. They all appreciated  the individual host idea.  Thanks to the Community  Recreation class for supplying them. Special mention  to the good, job done by  scorers and timers from the  players. The girls believed  Gibsons was a very nice town  and the hosting team (Elphie)  was very helpful.  All games were played  well. The climax to the tourney was the Armstrong win.  After the game, the team cut  down the net as a special souvenir. Finally, the awards  were presented. Banners were  given to all team captains.

After a four-month  layoff due to weather conditions making fields unplayable  the Wanderers came up with  a strong performance. Goals  by Duncan Campbell and Graham Chapman led the Wanderers to the win with two  other goals disallowed because of a disputed offside  call for one, and the other  disallowed by the referee,  but it was obvious it crossed  the goal-line by a good two  feet.  Jan De Reus came up with a  good performance in goal and  lost his shutout in the last  ten minutes of the game on a  penalty shot.  The win was a solid team  effort with outstanding performances by right-winger  Kenny Miles, who was  unlucky not to have scored a  goal, and Frank Havies who  made several fine solo efforts  on left-wing; Lex Tierney  anchored a good mid-field  with Stevey Miles as usual  making his presence felt.  Corky Bland led his defensive  corps with good ball distribution during the entire game.  The win now makes the  Wanderers' record a respectable six wins, two losses and  two ties, and they stilt hold  fourth position in a very  competitive league. The  Wanderers still hold three  games in hand over the  divisional leaders, Sons of  Norway, who are seven points  ahead and with wins recorded  in the three games can  move up the ladder significantly.  The Wanderers travel  to  Vancouver March 10 to meet  Shamrock Labatts and the  following weekend, meet  Belfast United at Langdale.

I'll have to start  looking for another now; that  is unless the young salmon  laid last year can find a way to  struggle up through the gravel which has washed down  the hillside this winter. In  some places it's about four  feet thick, so I would guess  that the run is wiped out.  Outraged I You bet, but  there is a kicker to this.  Somehow our lumbering  dinosaur of a judicial system  has virtually declared open  season on this type of misuse  BI HEI6BB0DB  Name Brand Appliance  A lot of things have changed since the days of the  washboard and wood stove.

In a court case recently in  Powell River, Fowler vs Regina, concerning the dumping  of deleterious material into  a fish bearing creek, the  court ruling was that the  trial was unconstitutional  and it's off to a higher court.  Meanwhile every case of a  similar nature is being held  over until a ruling on this  legality is figured out.  My favourite little creek  comes into this category. A  date had been set in court  concerning it; now it has been  remanded until 1980. What  about next year's run? Dog  salmon have a four year  cycle, at which time they  return to the stream of their  birth. Last year's run is presumably wiped out. On one  instance 1 went there and  the water looked like it could  have been scooped up and  used for pottery.  Sometimes I think that  stream pollution should be  put in the same category as  the inevitable death and taxes.  And what about major streams  like Chapman Creek? Is the  same thing inevitable there,  too?  C.O.R.E.  My apologies to the Gibsons Wildlife Cub for not giving more publicity to your  C.O.R.E. hunter training  programme. I had it all set for  the paper two weeks ago but  somehow it didn't get in.  Last week I made sure by  announcing, "make sure the  CORE programme goes in  this week." Unfortunately  with my funny Scottish accent  the word CORE was heard as  COURT, so in went the  court news.  Bird meeting  Last week's bird meeting at  Chatelech had a packed  house. I counted forty-nine  people, and no one could have  been disappointed at the presentation Wayne Campbell  gave on owls.  Wayne is the Assistant  Curator of birds and mammals  in the Victoria Museum. He  gave a great slide show on  the owls that have been recorded in B.C., some of them  very rare.  One interesting thing that  he pointed out  is that very  LIZ FORSHNER  DEPOSITS CLERK  Liz has been a Gibsons  resident for twelve  years, but her husband  Terry still considers her  a newcomer.

Good news for those  who think that everything has  been done by experts and  their amateur observations  are old hat.  The highlight of the show  was when he brought in Keah,  a full-grown female great  horned owl , who enjoyed  having us tickle her behind  the head. She had been the  victim of a car accident six  years ago. Since then, she's  been Wayne's sidekick,  going to lectures around  B.C. taking up to three  hundred school kids a day in  her stride.  It was great to hear someone with credentials call down  the practice of feeding hummingbirds. According to  Wayne, you can kill hummingbirds by using pasteurized  sugar in the feeder. Don't  ask me the difference between  pasteurized and unpasteurized sugar, but I never have  thought that it's a good idea  to feed them anyway.  There was an outing of the  club to Vancouver on Saturday. If I can get a hold of  Wayne before press time I'll  give a run down on how it  went.  Odds 'n ends  Passing Trout Lake on  Friday afternoon, I noticed  four hooded  amongst the reeds  males and two females.  They're not very common  around here, so it might  be worthwhile having a look  to see if they're stiHthere.  On the way back to Gibsons,  I spotted an osprey flying  up Chapman Creek. A pair  had a nest up there a couple  of years ago. Hope that they  have returned.  Ling cod fishing is closed  until April 31, so stocks can  be brought back.

On the  rocks  The Kenmac Parts Trophy,  emblematic of supremacy in  the Club Mixed Bonspiel  was taken by the Reitlo rink  on Sunday afternoon when  they defeated the Jack Clement rink in the final draw.  The B event was contested by  the Doug Elson and Dennis  Suveges rinks with Elson  taking the prize.  Keeper trophies for first  and second in the A event  were donated by Stewart  Enterprises and Shoal Development Ltd., while B  event keepers were donated  by Smitty's Marina. Many  thanks to all our donors for  their generosity.  Sixteen rinks participated  in this bonspiel which is one  of the most popular events of  the curling season.  The highlight of the 'spiel  was the "Eclipse Turkey  Shoot" won by Dave Richardson. The shoot is so  named since Richardson made  his shot in complete darkness. With eyesight like that,  Elphie students are warned  to be on their guard when the  "Veep" is patrolling the  halls.  Only two weeks of league  play remain, with play-offs  beginning on March 19.

Seven yean of research and  writing have been devoted to  this work, 'The West Howe  By Frank Wyngaert  Compiling material for such  a story is a tremendous challenge, but also a delight.  Only a few descendants  of the early pioneers and  settlers remained when work  on this history, covering a  ninety-year period, realized its  beginning. Reminiscences  of bygone years with some did  not always prove fruitful. One  discovered that most folk were  absorbed in present day  occurrences ��� perhaps radio  and television contributed to  this trend; so that memories of  earlier years at Howe Sound  were of vague recollection. To  a few remaining individuals,  the past was still interesting  conversation and they were,  therefore, highly responsive.  It was my privilege as a  child, along with my parents,  to settle at Gibson's Landing  in August 1909. I had therefore grown, as it were, with  the community.

It Is a comprehensive history covering a  ninety-year period, 1886-  1976, relating to the early  history of oar local Islands,  with Gibson's Landing and  district as the focal point.  The book depicts a year-by-  year record of all manner of  development,       businesses,  sure to put to use. My family  resided next door to the  'Chuck' Winegarden family  for half a century. Emma,  'Chuck's' wife, was a daughter of George Gibson, Sr,  Conversation frequently  centred around events of those  early pioneer years. Following the death of the pioneer  and his wife, the Winegarden  family took up residence in  the pioneer's home as caretakers. It became my pleasure  to stay with them a few days,  and to sleep in an upstairs  bedroom overlooking the Bay.  In later years many socials  and dance parties were held  within this pioneer home.  Initially it was not the  author's intent to write a history of such length and detail.  What actually changed the  course of events was my being  approached by several persons who indicated disappointment in not having a  history relating to those  years of sacrificial labours by  early settlers. In fact, just to  know something of their  past, their problems, perplexities, their manner of life  during that pioneer era;  coupled with numerous anxieties; and in simple fact,  how did they manage to survive.

The  former provided the author  with an interesting source of  information respecting those  early years. Many years later,  Grace, daughter of the Glass-  fords and her husband Clare  Chamberlin, assisted tremendously.  The initial home of the author's family at Gibson's  Landing was on the fringe of  the Finnish settlement. My  upbringing was a close  relationship with these folk.  Their ability to cope with  pioneer life was most invaluable to all who shared their  companionship. With a community spirit at heart they  depicted a creative and  interesting type of leadership.  As a youngster then, growing up amongst these folk, 1  developed within me a deep  sense of pride and joy in the  reality of such a privilege.
