 JEW***"  ' lit&#2?m&S&~-  For a  The Sunshine  Published at Gibsons, B.C.  15* per copy on newsstands  January 3,1979  Volume 33, Number 1  On School Board move  Gibsons mayor  makes statement  L.B.Blaln, Mayor of Gibsons  Statement with Regard to Removal of School District #46  Offices bom Gibsons to Sechelt Vicinity  School District #46 offices and workshop have been located in  Gibsons ever since the inception of the School District because it  has, and has had, the heaviest concentration of population.  Gibsons has been negotiating with the School District for the  past two years with regard to replacement of their existing  crowded quarters and when informed that the School District  had portable school rooms which could be used, offered them  valuable Village property on a long term lease at $1.00 per year.  This offer was made at a joint meeting of Council and the School  Board in March of 1978 and the offer was detailed in an ensuing  letter from the Village.  That offer was made by Council in the realization that the  School District is supported by Village taxpayers and in order to  keep the School Board office within the most dearly-populated  area.  The School Board did not reply to this offer and being heavily-  weighted voterwise against the Gibsons area, announced without further consultation that the offices were to be moved'to the  Sechelt area.  When two members of the Board were asked for reasons for  the decision, they said that the Sechelt area north contained  nine schools with approximately 1,250 pupils against four  schools with 1,250 pupils in the Gibsons area. On further  questioning, the reply was that Roberts Creek was included  with the Sechelt area as Roberts Creek Elementary graduates  were sent to Chatelech Junior Secondary School in Sechelt.  Pursuing the same logic, Chatelech Junior Secondary graduates  are sent to Elphinstone Secondary in Gibsons and this being the  case, then all Sechelt area students should be considered Gibsons area students. That of course is as ridiculous as including  Roberts Creek students in the Sechelt area.  With Roberts Creek Elementary School being considered in  the Gibsons area, then Sechelt north contains eight schools  with a total enrolment of 1,123 and the Gibsons area, five  schools with an enrolment of 1,393.  Even without the potential industries mooted for the Gibsons  area, which would have a considerable impact on the school  population, Gibsons area schools have twenty-four percent  more students than the rest of the Sunshine Coast.  All figures above were compiled from School District #46  Attendance Summary for November, 1978.  I must condemn the decision to move the offices to Sechelt on  the grounds that it moves a government office to where it is less  accessible to the public it is supposed to serve.  In conclusion, it would appear that the School Board's action  defies logic and that the decision was made on the basis of  juggling figures to justify a desired conclusion.  I leave it to the public and the Honourable Minister of Education to decide whether the decision makes sense, and if not,  to try and dissuade them from taking this precipitate action.

Mill was forced on to full shift operation over the  holiday by the cold weather.  School Board move questioned  By George Cooper  The School Board proposal  to spend an estimated  $55,700 to provide new offices for itself in Sechelt has  stirred up fretful remonstrance in Gibsons, the most  recent coming from Mayor  Blain in a statement to Council December 19.  Now the location of its offices is the School Board's  business���and a big business  it is at $6,656,674 proposed  for 1979's budget. What is  much . more important than  where their headquarters are  located is how much they are  going to spend on the project. For every penny that is  paid for it is picked from the  pocket of the taxpayer. And  most of that directly from  property taxes. As far as the  operation of the everyday  classroom work is affected,  the Board offices could be  located, quite centrally too,  in the empty buildings of  Merry Island lighthouse.  Accounts, records, and general communication centre are  the   chief   functions   of   a  School Board office and  students can quite blissfully  graduate from secondary  without ever having heard of  such a place.  The taxpayer has no way to  protest what the Ministry of  Education and the School  Boards impose upon him.  True, the School Board in the  past decade has several times  foregone the comfort and the  status of its own office building in order to construct  school buildings whose costs  had jumped beyond what the  referendum allowed. (Old-  timers will remember the days  when the taxpayer had a  direct voice in school expenditure with his vote on referendum day.) Now the School  Board has made a decision  which no doubt appears  reasonable to its members ���  use buildings they already  have at hand on land they  already own for a mere  $55,000 of taxpayer money to  dull them up. The Board pays  $4,200 a year for the space it  presently uses in Gibsons  Village Hall. Compare that  amount to interest on $55,000  Boats must be moved  Wharf repairs  Residents of the Sunshine Coast who have boats moored at  Gibsons Wharf are asked to note that repair work done on the  wharf starting on Monday, January 8,1979, will require that at  least twenty-five boats be moved bom their present position for  a period of up to two weeks.  The shaded area on the adjoining diagram Indicates the sections of the Government Wharf Involved In the repair work.  Boat-owners seeking farther Information should contact the  wharfinger, Gary White, at 886-8017 or the Municipal Office In  Gibsons, 886-2274.  at, say, 10% per annum. If  the staff of administrators and  clerks finds its present space  too small there is no doubt  more available in the present  quarters. The new Council  chamber, for instance, can  double as the School District's Board and Conference  room, while the present Board  Room can be re-designed  as offices.  Location is not a crucial  factor for School Board office functioning. The real  reason for the proposed removal of offices is yet to surface. When this does let us  hope the expenditure of  $55,000 adds to the education of the district's 2,500  students.  Gibsons Council on hearing  a request from Keith evans  and Al Wagner of the newly  formed Raquetball Club for  a $50,000 grant in cash and a  site near the indoor pool,  referred the petitioners to the  example of the Winter Club  which built its curling rink by  raising the local share through  workbees and debentures,  and its own borrowing. The  petitioners who said they had  plans for two hundred members and two courts with  public time available were  glad to hear Council would  look favourably on a request  for a site on Village property. They announced they will  look into other means to finance the local share of their  proposed health, squash and  raquetball club.

FRIDAY, DECEMBER 14,  1978: It has been a busy and  eventful year.  For me, days have suddenly  become months as I attend to  the many, often small, often  detailed, but always important  problems of constituents  dealing with government. Superimposed on this day-today work have been the major  issues of the province ��� the  new forest act, curbs on the  rights of labour, the heroin  act, economic policy.  The greatest disappointment has undoubtedly been  the failure of the governments, both federal and  provincial, to do anything  about unemployment. The  joy of this Christmastime is  muted bV the knowledge that  thousands of families are  suffering because the economy cannot provide a meaningful place for them.  If the province as a whole  were able to make a New  Year's resolution, it surely  would be: to find work for  every man and woman now  unemployed, able and willing  to participate in making British Columbia the healthy and  prosperous place it should be.  The coming year will probably see a provincial general  election. It will be a time of  decision for British Columbians which will have significance far beyond the simple  results of the vote. The next  government will be making  decisions which effect generations of British Columbians for  better or for worse.  Before we enter the fray,  with all the emotions that will  involve, this holiday is perhaps a good time to mention  the good feelings that are a  part of the life of one who  serves in public life.  Although we New Democrats are staunchly committed  to changing the government  now in Victoria, we recognize  that those in power have ideologies and values of their  own which are to be respected.  I am proud of the good relations I have been able to develop with members on the opposite side of the house and  with cabinet ministers with  whom" I "deal  The fraternity and good  will among fellow New Democrats in the Legislature is  another blessing I am counting this holiday season. Many  residents of Mackenzie had a  chance to meet with some of  my fellow opposition members  when we held a public caucus  meeting in Powell River  But most of all, the support  and encouragement of the  people of Mackenzie makes  the duties I perform worthwhile. The feeling that we can  work together to solve individual and community problems, regardless of how one  voted in the general election, is an asset which benefits the whole riding.  1 wish you all a happy  holiday and rewarding 1979.  Molly Almond dies  Mrs. Molly Almond of  Henderson Road In Roberts  Creek died suddenly on Thus-  day, December 28. She was  visiting with a group of friends  at the home of Milt and Fran  Ovens of Sechelt when she  complained about a pain In  her neck. She was taken to  St. Mary's and then to St.  Paul's  but  died  later  that  evening.  Mrs. Almond, who was  forty-eight years old, suffered a cerebral hemorrhage.  She was the wife of Harry  Almond, until recently  chairman of the Regional  Board.  Mis. Almond had been a  resident of the Sunshine Coasl  for more than twenty years.  She was a talented artist,  president of the Sechell  Sketch Clnb, and an enthusiastic gardener, member of  the Sechelt Garden Club.  The Coast News would  like lo express Its sympathies  to Harry Almond and his  children al Ihis tragic and  untimely loss.  A beachcomber brought this wheel Into Gibsons police station last week. According  to Accident Investigation Spokesman at Vancouver Airport, Mr. Abbitt, it may be  the missing wheel from a Piper PA 28 which crashed In the Fraser River on December 19.  | Delivered to EVERY address on the Sunshine Coast every Tuesday Coast News, January 3,1979.

Troublesome thoughts  Oil seems like it is intent on playing a  major part in our lives during the coming  year and perhaps throughout the end of  the centiry. Not that oil hasn't been playing an ever-increasing part in our lives  during the last century or so, but there  are new kinds of changes lying ahead for  us it would seem and many of them have  reference to oil.  There is, of course, the continuous and  unsolved problem of the vast potential  for marine disasters as ever larger  tankers transport ever larger quantities  of oil through the treacherous seas of the  world. The recent spill near Spain in  which disaster was most narrowly  averted, following on the heels of the  earlier one which polluted the beaches of  north-western France, served as a  reminder ��� if we needed one ��� of the  immense damage which is possible at  any time.  Oil must be transported, we are not in a  position to do without it, but what must  increasingly concern us is that it be trans  ported as safely as possible. The oil  companies have cut their transportation  costs and maximized their profits by  utilizing vessels registered in such places  as Liberia where virtually no questions  are asked which could lead to costly regulation of the transport vessel. This has to  stop. Any loopholes which make it possible for any organization to send vast  quantities of oil abroad on the seas of the  world in vessels in which everything has  not been done to ensure safety of the  cargo and the seas, should be plugged up  by international action immediately.  Canada should be pressing this view at  the United Nations and with the oil  companies. We have as much coastline  as anyone. As individuals we should be  pressing our representatives to do some  thinking about this and let us hear the  results of the exercise.  It is safe to predict that the transportation of oil will continue to grab its  share of the headlines in 1979.  More troubles and a slight hope  Nor will the production of oil be a  minor consideration in the coming year.  Because of the massive use of oil in North  America and dependence on it there is a  very real likelihood that the balance of  power in the world will swing dramatically towards those countries which are in a  position to supply the oil that the industrial world needs to function effectively.  At the present time the events in Iran are  causing some considerable anguish on  this side of the Atlantic Ocean. Under the  Shah, Iran has been one of the most loyal  of the pro-Western Arabs. It has supplied  vast quantities of oil to North America  and bought with the money great  amounts of sophisticated and costly  North American built armaments.  Now, despite the effusive support of  the American persident and the loyal  support of the well-equipped army, the  people of Iran seem intent on getting  rid of the Shah, lt seems that the American government has again distinguished  itself by supporting a military dictatorship or military-supported dictatorship  until such a time as it has become totally  contrary to their own best interests as  well as their alleged democratic principles. What happens in the next year as  the Arabs continue to use oil as a lever to  gain American support in their confrontation with Israel will be of intense  and crucial interest.  There is also the gathering storm in  Africa with Rhodesia and South Africa  struggling to keep the nineteenth century  alive in enclaves of the most total racial  oppression. That pot can boil over at any  time and will bear watching.  Usually, however, it is the unexpected Uiat has the most impact. Who would  have predicted at this time last year that  the rapprochement between Communist  China and the Americans would have become total to the point where the Americans would drop all diplomatic ties with  Taiwan, heretofore their showplace in  Asia. It is of course the gigantic Chinese  market that tempts the business-oriented  American government.  And perhaps we can take some comfort here. After all if we swing into 1979  knowing that Coca-Cola has been granted  a monopoly in Red China then the next  most amazing development to that would  be if greed were to be vanquished and  sanity and peace break out spontaneously  all over the world. It often seems that the  only absolute we have left is the absolute  of certain unexpectedness. It may be  enough. Let's wish for ourselves a happy,  peaceful, and prosperous New Year and  see what happens. Happy New Year to  all.  .from the files of Coast News  5 YEARS AGO  The Human Resources Society's  Mini-Bus makes its appearance for  the first time on the highways of the  Sunshine Coast.

L.R.Peterson  Slings & Arrows ��*  3��  George Matthews  I suppose that every once  or twice in a lifetime there  occurs some incident which  leaves an indelible impression. Such an incident was the |  assassination  on   November  23, 1963, of the president of'.,  the United'States,  John F. <  Kennedy. '  It is probably safe to say  that everyone who was old  enough can probably remember exactly what he or she  was doing when he or she  heard the news of the assassination. Millions may actually  have witnessed it on television.  For my part, I was teaching in Dawson City in the Yukon at the time far from any  available television sets.  When I heard the news that  Kennedy had been shot I  was teaching a Grade Ten  English class. On the curriculum at that time was a little-  known play by John Drink-  water called Abraham Lincoln and this was the subject  of our studies on that fateful  day. We were in fact discussing the assassination of  an American president a  century before when the principal of the school put her  head in the doorway and said  simply, "John Kennedy has  just been shot in Dallas!"  I left my class and went  down to the empty gymnasium  where the principal had the  radio piped in over the public address system and,  stunned, paced the floor while  the welter of semi-hysterical  voices from Dallas proclaimed  the dreadful details.  There was that about John  F.Kennedy which stirred the  imagination, His classical  eloquence, comparative  youth, and public posture  were such as to cause even  residents of countries other  than his own to entertain  perhaps extravagant hopes  about what he would achieve  by way of shaping the future.  It is easy to forget at this  remove in time that the White  House was popularly known as  Camelot in those days in tribute to the glamour, excitement, and promise of idealism  that it generated.  Perhaps in the fulness of  time we would have had many  of the high hopes dimmed,  as has been the case in Canada ten years after Pierre  Eliot Trudeau came to power  with similar impact. In November 1963, however,  Kennedy was almost universally popular throughout  the world and it seemed that  the dawning of a new day  was immediately at hand.  The bullets which tore into  Kennedy's head and body as  he rode in an open car through  -Dallas put a brutally sudden  end to such hopes. Suddenly  were..was a President Johnson  *tml perhaps the kindest thing  one can say about L.B.J,  is that here was no King  Arthur, The shiningest knight  pf the new round table was  gone and in his place was the  embodiment of every political  Compromise and shady dealing that had ever been made.  The new day was the old day  still.  1 can remember as I paced  the floor of the Dawson City  gymnasium in almost total  incredulity that I was amazed  when, within a few moments  of the assassination, it was  announced that there was a  suspect and he was a man of  Communist background with  some tie-in with Cuba. A  short while after that there  came the announcement that  the suspect, Lee Harvey Oswald, had been apprehended.  What incredible police work,  I thought.  In the days that followed  there came the tragic farce  of Oswald's assassination.  The newspaper pictures at  the time caught the pallid  Oswald's grimace of agony as  Jack Ruby stepped from a  crowd in the Dallas police  station and shot him in the  stomach as he was being escorted by two grim-faced but  apparently oblivious Dallas  detectives. Here, again, the  assassination took place live  and on television and a  stunned world went reeling in  disbelief and shock again.  What was one to think?  The alleged assassin of the  president of the most powerful country in the world had  been shot to death in a police  station before thc television  cameras and the nation before  he could be brought to trial.  His killer, Jack Ruby ��� a  seedy two-bit gangster-  operator of a particularly  unsavoury Dallas nightclub ��� proclaimed that he  shot Oswald because of his,  Ruby's, intense patriotism.  The parallel with the assassination of Lincoln continued. As in that case the  alleged killer of the president had been gunned down  before he could be brought to  trial. Again, allegations of a  conspiracy were common  gossip. As in the case of  Lincoln's   assassination,   the  authorities were quick to  declare that there had been no  conspiracy; that one deranged  man acting alone had been  responsible and that the subsequent killing of the alleged  assassin had been merely  unfortunate.  The Warren Commission,  appointed by President  Johnson at whose urging  Kennedy had gone to Texas,  declared itself satisfied that  Oswald alone was responsible  and that the matter was  closed. There came a spate of  books contesting these findings. There was talk of a shot  from a grassy knoll in front of  Kennedy. One motorcycle  policeman was so certain a  shot had come from there that  he charged up the knoll on his  bike and there was rumour of  a fleeing figure.  All allegations and rumours  were discredited. The matter  was uneasily closed.  Last week, however, a tape  made accidentally at the time  of the shooting was declared  by experts to have at least  four gunshots, as opposed to  three that Oswald was alleged  to have fired in less than  six seconds from the Texas  Book Depository ��� though his  army records declared him an  indifferent marksman ��� into  the moving target of the president. "This is not a new  technique," declared the  expert. "It has been used as  evidence and accepted in  courts all over this country.''  And so again, the sombre  spectre of conspiracy is raised  and more disquieting still,  the spectre ofa massive cover-  up at the highest levels. Those  of us who share the original  American dream of open and  honest and just government  by the people, of the people,  for the people, have reason for  the deepest concern.  A friend of mine returned  last week from a brief visit to  the Pearly Gates. He was  there, at Heaven's very door,  as a result of a head injury inflicted by a carelessly aimed  champagne cork. He was pronounced dead by a recent  graduate of, the St.John's  Ambulance first aid course  and as he recalled to me later  he actually saw his own soul  departing his body. He said it  rose up out of his left nostril  and hovered overhead for  what he estimated to be about  three minutes then slipped  away into the bathroom and  out an open window. The  other occupants of the room,  who were there to celebrate  my friend's birthday had, in  the meantime, stood the  corpse in a corner, put a lampshade over its head and carried on with the celebration.  They were singularly unaware  of the soul's departure.  My friend's soul ascended  immediately to Heaven with  only a brief pause in Purgatory  to recover its breath. My  friend tells me that he might  have been granted immediate  entrance into the kingdom of  Heaven had it not been for an  apparent dispute between  Saint Peter and three heavenly  aspirants waiting to gain  admission. Being at the end of  the line my friend was obliged  to listen to every sordid detail  of this unseemly argument.  These three souls who, coinci-  dentally, were also former  residents of the Sunshine  Coast, were arguing furiously  about who should be the first  to gain entry. It seems they  had arrived simultaneously  and each had his own good  reason for claiming the right  of first entry.  Saint Peter had the three  draw straws for the privilege  of stating his case first. The  first soul allowed to speak, a  Winter SOlstice   by John Moore  Every sacrifice, all that can be done  that might move or entice the sulking sun,  has been performed. So many things have died.  Like the thick veil of a reluctant bride,  snow obscures the features of the earth; trees  are wrapped In heavy winding-sheets, a frieze  ot ivy along the balcony trails  like a mad suitor frozen to th rails.  \ In Ihe dawn darkness, the silent seal of snow  j ruptures like a membrane of Ice, as though  ' some sluggish hibernating creature stirred  r and hushed the first whistlings of the birds.

He was there, he  claimed, as a result of a terrible bit of bad luck. He had  just completed a million dollar  land development deal (at  this point he offered Saint  Peter the plastic briefcase  clutched in his hand as proof  thc papers had been signed)  and he was gunning his camper up Davis Bay hill at no  more than seventy miles an  hour so as not to be late  for his Lion's Club meeting.  At that very moment, as fate  would have it, as he pulled  out to pass a burning school  bus a fully loaded logging  truck crested the hill and well,  here he was. The Sechelt soul  stated his case in firm, confident, businesslike terms:  first he was here through no  fault of his own; second he had  served his fellow man well by  turning no fewer than 680  acres of previously useless  virgin timber land into parking  lots and tract residential  development; third, he was  obviously better-dressed,  more successful, and more  used to getting his own way  than the other two; fourth, he  could offer Saint Peter a good  deal on a piece of West  Sechelt waterfront property.  The second soul was a former resident of Roberts  Creek. My friend reported his  statement verbatim.  "Man it was a bad scene.  Can you dig it? There I was  up at thc powerline checking  up on this Canada Council  sponsored agricultural project I've got happening. I'd  just finished putting out the  slug bait, taking a few tops off  my plants, and was about to  take my '52 Chevy pickup  back to my old lady's place.  I threw the kids and the dogs  in the back but do you think I  could get that goat into the  front seat? No way, man. If  she would have got in two  minutes sooner I wouldn't  be here right now. I was just  past Snodgrass Road when  this crazy son of a bitch in a  camper comes over the hill  about ninety miles an hour  and slams into this logging  truck right in front of me. Well  the brakes in the old Chevy  aren't the best and all I remember was this big log coming right for the windshield.

Lockstead writes Vander Zalm  Editor:  I am enclosing for your  information a copy of my  letter of December 14, 1978  to the Honourable William  Vander Zalm, Minister of  Municipal Affairs, regarding  the recommendations put forward in the Regional District Review Committee Report published recently.  Don Lockstead, M.L.A,  (Mackenzie)  ' 'Dear Mr. Vander Zalm:  I have now had the opportunity to read the recommendations put forward in the  Regional District Review  Committee Report published  recently for your ministry  and wish to make the following observations as these  recommendations relate to  my constituency. As you probably are aware, there are three  whole Regional Districts in  the constituency of Mackenzie  Firstly, that the Sunshine tioned recommendation.  Coast Regional District should Secondly,   Central   Coast  be amalgamated with the Po- Regional District takes strong  well River Regional District exception   to   the   proposal  because these two districts that they be eliminated.  I  share   a   common   highway tend   to  agree   with   their  link, to me simply does not point of view. While I realize  make   sense.   The   Powell that that particular district  River   Regional   District   is is very large with all its elec-  geographically separated from toral   areas   geographically  the Sunshine Coast Regional isolated from each other, and  District by Jervis Inlet and that they as well have a very  both     district     encompass low tax base, it seems to me  large geographic areas. Fur- that the district is starting to  ther, both Regional Districts cooperate and to work much  are in the midst of carrying better now and it would be  out planning functions in their disastrous to disassemble all  respective electoral areas in of the efforts that have been  consultation with the community and people involved  and the recommended change  in my view could seriously  hinder these functions. I  have not spoken to one Regional Board member, or  member of a Municipal  Council or private citizen who  is in favour of the aforemen-  put forward to date.  Finally, while I understand  the problems of Regional  Districts to at least some  extent, it is my opinion that  Regional Districts still offer  the average citizen the best  opportunity, particularly  in rural areas, to have a democratic voice in governing their  own affairs.

Editor:  This was supposed to have  been a time of peace on earth  good will to all men; but I  certainly don't feel too friendly disposed towards the type  of vermin that is infesting our  neighbourhood! In fact I am  mad and getting madder by  the minute. I am referring of  course to the moronic imbeciles whose idea of fun is  going around upsetting  mailboxes, destroying some,  knocking down road signs,  and many other acts of a lunatic nature.  Isn't it about time the authorities apprehend these  jerks and, when they are  hauled into court, instead of  a mild slap on the wrist and a  suspended sentence, let us  have a public flogging, preferably in front of Molly's Reach  on a Saturday afternoon so all  can attend and witness  the surprise and humiliation  when their shirts are ripped  off their backs, their trousers  lowered and about 20���30  lashes of the cat o'nine  tails administered. I think the  pain and the fact of being  exposed as a public spectacle might at least penetrate  some part of their rotten  hides; to reach their brains is  an impossibility as it is obvious they have none.

TAi  Update on Tom Walts  Starting with Frankie Laine  in the final years of the  Forties, 1 have developed  fixations on the voices and  vocal-stylings of a sizable  group of singers. My enthusiasm for some of these performers has waned with the  passage of time but a fair  number continue to move me  as much as they did originally. Billy Holiday; Louis  Armstrong; Dinah Washington; Ray Charles; Tony  Bennett; Anita O'Day; Sarah  Vaughn and numerous others,  still retain the power to enchant me with their best work.  The Kock Era ushered in an  absolute avalanche of new  talent. Some of it was (and  continues to be) pretty minor  and derivative but there were  many new giants: The Beatles; Elvis Presley; Bob Dylan;  Van Morrison and so on, ad  infinitum. I plunged into a  brand-new phase of fandom  and bought their records too.  Pecuniary difficulties over the  last few years plus a rickety  record-player that should have  been put out to pasture long  ago, have discouraged me  from adding to my collection  of late. The sole exception to  this has been the albums of  Tom Waits which I make  haste to acquire whenever a  new one appears.  I have outlined elsewhere,  my obsession with this unique  artist. His lyric-writing  ability can only be described  as phenomenal and it is  matched by his skill as a performer. An interesting  glimpse of Waits in his native  habitat was provided in the  dying weeks of C.B.C.'s  90 Minutes Live when Flo and  Eddie, the show's resident  rock-clowns, took television  cameras to the seedy Tropi-  Pages from a Life-Log  Peter Trower  cana Motel in Los Angeles  where the singer holes up  when not on the road. Tom  Waits' pad (like his act)  has to be seen to be believed.  It looks like the epicentre of  a permanent earthquake.  Cardboard-boxes, empty  beer-bottles, guitar-cases,  books, record-albums and a  host of other random possessions lie cluttered in' a classic  jumble that would drive the  most stoic chambermaid to  the dithering edge. Flo and  Eddie pick their way through  thc topsy-turvy battlefield of  the room and join their affably-growling host at the far  end where he keeps a battered upright piano. After a  spate of small talk, Waits  flops down at the keyboard  and gruffs out a ballad he  has just written (and never  recorded to my knowledge).  Later there is some mention  of the role he has just completed in Sylvester Stallone's  new film, Paradise Alley,  Waits is rather noncommital  about it.  Recently, I saw Paradise  Alley and am obliged to report  that it is not a particularly-  successful film. It has good  moments and the grungy  Hell's Kitchen environment  is convincingly captured but  the whole thing is played as a  broad farce which lessons the  impact. Also the cutting  seems very chaotic and illogical in spots. It is not my  intention to outline the plot  which involves the sleazy  lower-echelons of professional wrestling and some smalltime-gangster caricatures.

He is  limited to scraps and snatches  of songs (mostly not his own)  and is largely confined to  mugging in the background.  Stallone who wrote, directed  and plays the lead part in  his usual one-man-band  fashion, could at least have  allowed Waits to sing the  title-song behind the credits  but he elects to essay this  role also.  Tom Waits' movie-debut  may be nothing to write home  about but fortunately, his  latest album Blue Valentine  is quite another story. He  pulls out all the stops on this  one and the result is the most-  consistently-good record he  has made to date. The first  side opens with Somewhere  from West Side Story (one  of his few uses of non-original  material). Accompanied by  what sounds like a full orchestra complete with strings,  Waits husks the lyric movingly, seasons it with a touch of  Satchmo-style phrasing and  achieves an overall effect  that is oddly beautiful. The  tempo shifts startlingly as  does the mood. Now Waits is  back on familiar turf, hissing  and whispering his way into a  shuffly blues called Red  Shoes By The Drugstore.  It tells the sad tale of a girl  waiting in vain for her boyfriend who has been gunned  down in a robbery-gone-  wrong. It becomes apparent  from this track on that Waits  is singing more and better  than ever before; trying new  things with his voice; driving  himself even harder; plunging  deeper into the blues that  have always dominated his  work. Christmas Card From A  Hooker In Minneapolis is  the sad plaint of a shady  lady fallen upon hard times.  Waits moans the sad-funny  lyrics to a slow two-piano  backing that gives predominance to the wry and clever  words. (Blue Valentine differs from the earlier albums  in that Waits plays little  piano, choosing to wield a  mean electric guitar on most  of the tracks.) He employs  this instrument to good effect on the next song, a hard-  driving Chicano blues called  Romeo Is Bleeding. The scene  is a street in the Barrio where  a gang of young apprentice-  punks hangs admiringly  around the older hoodlum who  is their hero. Romeo accepts  the homage as his bounden  right but he is a man marked  for violent death by his very  life-style; a man already figuratively bleeding. Waits spits  out the lyrics to a Latin-  tinged beat, his regular group  augmented by a wailing organ and conga drums. The  reference to James Cagney in  the final line is no accident.  The whole scenario harks back  to Angels With Dirty Facet.  Waits ends the piece with a  free-form takeout where he  simulates very effectively,  the actual voices of the Chica-  nos street-rapping in Spanish.  The final track on the first  side is an eight-minute killer  of a blues called Twenty  Nine Dollars And An A1U-  gator Purse. The lyrics are  extremely compelling and  Waits hammers them home  over a slow-rolling blues  line that gathers intensity  as it goes. The protagonists  in this tale are black and when  he makes them speak, Waits  slips easily into the exaggerated inflections of the black  hipster. Story involves a girl  from Chicago who is conned,  robbed and nearly killed by a  slick-talking, heartless,  L.A. street hustler.  ...and she's lucky to be alive  the doctor whispered to the  nurse  she only lost half a pint of  blood  twenty-nine dollars and an  alligator purse.  The second side opens hard  with another tough blues  called Wrong Side Of The  Road. The lyrics are considerably more surreal but  Waits does not slacken his  attack, blasting them out like  a string of insults to conformity. The pulsing,  medium-tempoed backing  propels the words relentlessly. Waits plunges off the  end of the lyric into another  swinging spate of scarfing and  improvising. The next song is  an out and out stomper entitled Whlstlln' Past The  Graveyard. Waits dons the  persona of Papa One-eyed  Jack, a bombastic anti-  hero whose lineage traces  back to the very beginning of  the blues. The words are  largely tongue-in-cheek as he  rasps out the warcry of a  professional "bad dude".  Kentucky Avenue makes a  sudden change of pace, returning to the soft ballad  style of the album's opening  track. Playing piano again  and backed by full orchestra,  Waits spins a fantasy of  childhood, perhaps autobiographical. Sung from the  viewpoint of a young boy, it  tells movingly of his hopeless  desire to somehow make a  crippled friend whole again.  This is the tender, nostalgic  side of Waits and makes an  effective counterpoint to the  raunchy, smoldering mood  that infuses most of the album. That mood is reinstated  resoundingly in the next  song, Sweet Little Bullet  From A Pretty Blue Gun,  an uptempo blues of great  power; certainly, the most  jolting in the whole collection. Similar in theme to  Twenty Nine Dollars, it also  traces the downfall of a young  girl, engulfed by the city.  In this case however, the  denouement is considerably  grimmer:  ...no that ain 't no cherry bomb  Fourth of July's all done  Ellingham n     :  a.   Astrology   *  ��*�����*������������***<  Film Society  By Allan J.Crane  It has not proved possible  to commence the Film Society's activities for 1979 on  Jan. 9 as had been planned  because the Twilight Theatre's regular programme, the  motion picture realization  of Agatha Christie's Death on  the Nile, runs for a full two-  and-one-half hours. The  Kwahtahmoss Film Society's  first programme is postponed, therefore, until  9:00 p.m. on Tuesday, January 16 when Charlie Chaplin's Modern Times will be  shown. By way of contrast, the  other face of drama will be  represented two weeks from  that date on Tuesday, January  30 when the Zeffirelli Romeo  and Juliette will be screened.  For the time being, films will  continue to be screened once  every two weeks. Later in the  year, it may be possible to  schedule films every week as  was done in previous years  Fellini's 8'/i has been  booked for Feburary 6, but  this booking was made before  it was known that screenings  would be scheduled every two  weeks. Please see this column  in later issues of the Coast  News for further details since  it is hoped that the Fellini  film can be held over for showing on February 13. Future  programmes will be chosen  from films which are coming  to Vancouver for screening at  the Ridge Theatre, the Dunbar and other Vancouver  cinemas. Details will not be  announced until the programme for the Ridge Theatre  covering the months of Feb  ruary and March has been  finalized.  New World-Mutual Pictures  in Toronto, however, have  informed me that both Alain  Resnais' Providence (featuring a magnificent performance  by John Gielgud) and the  renowned French film, The  Lacemaker will be playing in  Vancouver in the New Year  and that they will be made  available to us. These films  should satisfy the viewer  who wanted "more and more  of this quality".  Both films were  screened at Saskatoon during  the Annual General Meeting  of the Canadian Federation of  Film Societies held over the  May Day weekend this year.  The audiences at the meeting  rated both of them even more  highly than did they Dersu  Urzalu  It seems that there will be  a great variety of films for  screening by the Society in  1979, and it is hoped that  there will be something to  suit every taste. As always,  the film selection committee  welcomes suggestions from  the Society's patrons. These  may be made either by submitting them in writing to me  in care of the Coast News or  by writing them in the space  for comments on the film  rating ballots which are provided for audience evaluation  of programmes after each  screening. On behalf of the  executive of the Kwahtahmoss Film Society, I take this  opportunity to wish all of our  patrons and the management  of the Twilight Theatre a  very happy New Year.   ��� nothing quite like a  damn  By Ray Ellingham good row t0 ciear the air.

Again Waits does a highly-  compelling job both on guitar  and vocal and an outstanding  tenor-sax solo sparks the cut.  The album closes with the  title-song Blue Valentines.  Moody, reflective, it features  only Waits and one other  guitarist. The lyric, a lament  to a first love, contains some  fine images and the tune is  particularly haunting. Crooning in a heartfelt way, the  singer builds a mood of subdued anguish that is totally  convincing.  I suppose the album could  be faulted on certain counts  (repetition of the victimized-  woman theme, etc.) but that  would be mere nit-picking.  While I am partial to a great  deal of Waits' earlier work,  this collection seems to me, a  definite breakthrough both  musically and vocally, (The  poetic quality of the lyrics  continues to amaze but he  has been turning out exceptional lyrics since the beginning.) It is chiefly in the vocals  that Waits has switched into  overdrive. He is stretching for  fresh effects; varying the  whiskey growl and the results  are stunningly effective. Fortunately, many other people  must concur, Blue Valentine  is on the Rolling Stone Chart  and moving up.  I had a hunch the album  would be good. In a moment of  over-exuberance, I actually  phoned the Tropicana Motel  last August and (to my  amazement) got Waits on the  blower. He had just come back  from laying down the first  tracks of the album and was  very "up" and into talking.  "Gonna be  a  good  one!"  gambling dens  he gruffed. So I read him  Kisses In The Whisky and he  dug it and said send some  stuff so I did and I haven't  heard anything. And maybe  and techniques.

In many cultures it  is a time when debts must be  paid and accounts squared. It  is inevitably a time when we  take stock of the year past, the  failures and successes, and  ponder the challenges of the  year to come. As we sit,  glutted, dyspeptic, and hung-  over in the aftermath of the  Christmas feast, enervated by  too much revelry and days of  enforced idleness, the prospects are apt to appear somewhat dismal. If you listen to  the news or read a newspaper (one that's not on  strike), the whole world seems  to be going to hell in a handcart while our country shuffles  into the future, increasingly  divided by issues of language and culture, mumbling and grumbling about its  lack of unity and remaining  fundamentally unconscious of  itself.  Recently when the Victoria  City Council was about to  adjourn for the holidays, one  of the final items on their  agenda was the endorsement  of the federal government's  Canadian Unity petitition.  The petition was endorsed,  but not with the rubber stamp  unanimity that was expected.  One of the aldermen objected  to the waste of public money  and the time of public servants (including, presumably,  city aldermen), involved in  the composition, circulation  and endorsement of such  windy, if well-intentioned,  documents, and actually had  the nerve to suggest that the  cause of national unity might  be better served by a more  constructively concrete  expenditure of that money,  time, and energy.  The government of this  country is pouring money into  its campaign to publicize the  "cause" of national unity, an  effort that is truly a "campaign" in the political sense  and involves everything from  revising the constitution to  expensive cross-country  junkets and promotional  tours by a lot of highly paid  help who would be better  employed conducting the  actual business of the people.  Ironically, while all this money  is being pumped into advertisements for ourselves, the  financial rug is being pulled  out from under the one area in  which it is just becoming  possible for us to truly see  ourselves and recognize our  unique distinctively Canadian  identity. I refer to the funds  available for government  patronage of the arts.  When we encounter the  ancient civilizations of our  world, out of the mass of  archeological information  available, it is the relics of  their arts which elicit our  most immediate and powerful response. The public reaction in the U.S. to the touring  exhibition of the relics of King  Tutankahmen gives some indication of the range and  power of this response. We  may decipher their dry histories and even eventually  write scholarly commentaries  on their grocery lists and  graffiti, but their true identity,  the human "soul" of their  civilization can only be known  to us through their arts.  Where else should we expect  to find our own image mirrored more clearly than in the  works of Canadian artists?  I'm not suggesting that the  image is perfectly clear, that  all we have to do is spend  some time in a few galleries  and read a few books and the  problems of geographical  dissociation, linguistic and  cultural distinction will vanish  like greasy fingerprints wiped  from a mirror. We are an  emergent people and our arts  reflect our newness; often too  sophisticated in imitation of  foreign models; often crude  and unpolished as we strain to  see with our own eyes and  speak with our own voices.  Our best poets, for instance,  are not at their best often  enough and publish too often,  in, the attempt, I suspect, to  produce the same volume of  good poetry produced in a  country with three times the  population. Too few of our  younger poets appear to have  learned anything about the  craft, the actual mechanics, of  their art and likewise publish  too frequently, abetted by a  publishing industry which  occasionally sacrifices its  critical sense on the altar of  literary provincialism. Their  poems abound with a welter  of blood bones innards and  generally not too sublimated  violence that testifies to vacuous bourgeois upbringings  and often take refuge in an  obscurity that reveals all too  clearly that they really have no  idea what they are talking  about.  Still we can be proud of the  fact that Canadians are among  the world's highest per capita  producers and consumers of  poetry, and we can boast a  number of poets who admirably exemplify Northrop  Frye's assertion that "poetry  is the simplest way of saying  anything".     Our    novelists  all too often write as though  they meant to be read by  professors of literature and  university students in search  of an essay topic, yet Canadian books enjoy a growing  popularity with the Canadian  reading public. Obviously  Canadians recognize Canadian literature and the arts in  general as a source of that  elusive self-image, the  "Canadian" identity. Why,  one wonders, doesn't the  government? Why should  they pull the plug on the  artists and publishers who are  collaborating to bring this  shadowy image into sharp  focus, only in order to spend  millions on a campaign to  tell us who we are?  Personally I think the  acclaim accorded to works by  Marie-Claire Blais and  Michel Tremblay has done  more to promote biculturalism  and bilingualism in this country than all Mr. Trudeau's  speeches, petitions and  constitutional tinkering.  It is a shame that this government can find no other response to public criticism over  their spending than to cut  back on funds in an area  where a genuine Canadian  sense of identity is being  created, only to pump the  money back into government  and fob off on the people an  expensive artificial hype, an  image created by the government and for the government.

This was on the Indian Lands  at Sechelt.  Fisheries man  Ray Kraft moving  Over one hundred friends  gathered at the Madeira Park  Legion on Friday night to  give the Fisheries Officer Ray  Kraft a grand send-off. Ray  has been the officer in this  area for eight-and-one-half  years, arriving here in 1970  from Alert Bay, where he was  the Fisheries representative  for three years; he has all  told thirteen years with the  Department.  Originally Ray had entered  a competition for a position  in Comox, but due to a mix  up, he re-applied for and was  given the position in Parks-  Timber Days quick start  By Carl Chrismas  You might think Timber  Days is a long way off from  this holiday season, but I  would like to give you something to think about during  those 'after season' doldrums.  We got off to a slow start in  1978 because everyone  thought it was "too early"!  If it hadn't been for some last  minute help from former  committee members, things  may not have gone as well as  they did. Especially the  parade I There was even talk  of cancelling because of the  lateness.  Can you imagine what our  kids would think of a community that couldn't organize  a parade to show off their  May Queen? And the decorated bikes, floats and clowns?  And how about our local  crafts and industries who put  out a lot of money, time and  effort to dressup a two-day  celebration?  Last year we fiddled around  until we missed having our  local pipe band in the parade.  What is a parade without a  pipe band? Rather dull, I  would say I We will certainly hope to have them this  year and also have them do  one of their special drills as  part of our field day celebrations.  We are going to need a  Parade Committee Chairperson this year, and somewhere out there is that special  person who will take on that  task. To one who has done it  before, it will be a breeze.  And for anyone who has never  done anything like it, a real  challenge that will leave  him or her with a sense of  accomplishment and satisfaction that is very rewarding. And as a result, if a prize  winning float can be selected  to represent Sechelt Timber  Days with the 'big outfits'  parades in Vancouver, as we  did in the Sea Cavalcade, that  would be the frosting on the  cake I  There will be other committees, equally as important,  that will require leading and  helping hands. We have the  TD'78 folks as a nucleus for  'Committee '79', but we will  need new people, with new  ideas and enthusiasm to make  the coming year a big success. We will be having a  first meeting sometime in  February and we will publicize the date a week or two  before hand. In the meantime, anyone interested in  getting information for the  coming events may call  Cathy Acton at 885-5051.  Cathy was Chairman of Special Events in 1978 and she  did a bang-up job of introducing new ideas and excitement into Timber Days. She  will be expanding on that this  year and will appreciate help.  Give her a call. You will find  her fun to work with.  In my own case, I will be  away until February and on  my return, will chair the  Loggers Sports for 1979 and  will help out with Timber  Days, where I can.  Loggers Sports will be bigger and better than ever in  1979 and our little mascot  "Timberdays" will be the  busiest guy around. A planning committee is already  doing the groundwork to  improve the show for next  year, such as having mid-  morning competitions so that  the main events of the afternoon will move along faster.  We are hoping for the return of Copper Canyon Sal...  that is, if she can be kept  sober long enough to keep  all her clothes on during her  tree climbing act. And her  boyfriend, Art Williams, is  donating a new trophy this  year for 'Sportsman of the  Day'. Along with trophies  for each event and Weld-  wood's 'Logger of the Day'  trophy, the boys of the 'Calk  Boot Club' will really have  something to shoot at.  So that is the tip of the  iceberg for Timber Days  1979, but we will need a few  people to help out, to bring  the 'berg to the surface. Give  it some thought over the  holidays and watch for the  February meeting date!  In the meantime, to all  our friends and neighbours  who gave us encouragement  the past year, and to all who  will help in the next, a very  special Christmas and New  Year from Lucy and Carl  Chrismas!  aajga^SiRSi^B^ I  ville. He will be moving there  in the early part of this year.  The eight-and-one-half  years spent on the coast is  the longest time he has stayed  in one place since his marriage. Even though he loves  this area, he felt that it was  time to move. "You can't  stay and become stagnant.  I love this area and a piece of  me will always be here. The  people here are priceless", he  said;  Since Ray took the position  here, the territory has increased. Originally it  stretched from Sechelt to  Earls Cove and Jervis Inlet. It  now has been extended to  take in. Port Mellon to Jervis  and Lasqueti Island.  One of the heartening  things that he feels has come  about in the past few years is  the public awareness that our  waterways must be protected  in order to guarantee a future  supply offish.

DOGWOOD  1979 Fitness Program  Once more the many festive  celebrations have slipped into  the past, to be packed away  with the Christmas tree ornaments until another winter unwraps them for us again. It  is hoped that the season to be  jolly has indeed left you smiling, and that the afterglow  will sustain you far into the  New Year.  Of course everyone is still  recuperating from too much  turkey and chocolate, tarts  and cheer. It will be a week  before anyone really feels  like moving again. So while  in an armchair with a newspaper is still the favourite  place to be, here's a sneak  preview of some of the things  which will be available for  you to take part in once you're  moving again.  The following programmes,  offered by the Fitness and  Recreation Service, all begin  the week of January IS, except  where noted. With few exceptions the cost is $8.00 for ten  sessions or SI.00 per class,  and for some classes pre-  registration    is    requested.  MOREL'S  Framing &  Construction Ltd.

Wildlife Club  <" ���������������> '���",o D*~ sees Tanker Bomb  for his participation in school  sports as well as all band  activities such as basketball,  hockey, rugby and soccer.  Sportsmanship and good conduct in all his ventures.  This year he is at Tsoh-nye  at the Sechelt Indian Band  Native Environmental Studies  Programme.  Most dedicated athlete  of the year award was presented to Tony Paul for his  helpfulness and leadership  in all he gets involved; both  with boys and girls.  Most inspired athlete of  the year award went to Herb  August. All we can say about  'ole Herb' is that at the age of  sixty he'll still be active in  everything and anything we  have to offer. Thanks Herb 11  Gentleman athlete of the  year award went to Chuckie  Feschuck. This award speaks  for and explains itself. Other  than that Chuckie is one of the  most popular athletes there  is.  Sportsman of the year  award was presented to  Tommy Paul. It was a toss-up  between Tom, Chuckie and  Herb August for this valuable  award.  By John Hind Smith  On Wednesday, January  3, the Gibsons Wildlife Club  will hold the fourth in their  series of special meetings.  These meetings are held on  the first Wednesday of every  month at the Wildlife Club  on Highway 101 at 7:30 p.m.  The object of the meetings is  to try and present to membership and the public in general  subjects which the club feels  will inform and at the same  time stimulate some dialogue  and discussion.  The January subject is  particularly topical. We will  be presenting the film called  Tanker Bomb which tells the  story about the development  of oil tankers, some of the  largest of which will be plying the waters of the West  Coast carrying oil between  Alaska and the U.S.A. mainland.  The film points out the potential dangers of operating a  ship of this size and warns of  the consequences of an accident resulting in an oil spill.  The law of averages shows  that an accident will  occur  some time, whatever precautions may be taken to prevent  one. The results to the rugged  coastline of B.C. would be  disasterous.  We have invited Mr. Art  MePhee, the local co-ordinator of the Provincial Emergency Programme, to explain the  measures taken to combat a  spill locally and we think we  can guarantee that people  attending the meeting will  come away better informed  about this important subject.  Recently it was announced  that Mr. Rafe Mair, the new  Environment Minister of  B.C., was going to call a Federal/Provincial meeting to  determine where responsibility lies for oil clean-ups,  etc., and also to review precautions to be taken in the  event ofa spill.  The club executive would  like to thank the Resource  Centre of the Sechelt School  District for allowing us to use  this outstanding film for our  meeting and we look forward  to seeing a good turnout  at this first meeting of 1979.  There is no admission charge,  and it is open to the public.

Wildlife  corner  By Ian Corrance  Birds bomb buteo  Since Miss East moved  from Gibsons to Vernon, I've  missed the stories she used to  tell me, so it was a pleasant  surprise to get a letter from  her recently. Here it is.  "Dear Friend Ian:  Ever since it happened I  have been intending to write  you about the following incident, but somehow the time  and the typewriter never came  together.  It was August 16 of this  year, for I moved into my  present home on the 17th,  and was busy packing. My  then apartment looked out  onto the craggy face of a hill,  with long grassy slopes to the  north sloping up to bench  land and a higher crest hidden from me. As I passed the  glass doors leading to the balcony I saw what looked like a  puff of smoke above the grassy slope, and caught up my  binoculars for a close look.  To my surprise the "smoke"  was a closely packed bunch of  birds, which I assumed were  starlings, while below them,  circling lazily above the  grass, was a large hawk,  As I watched, the starlings  drew together into a compact  ball and threw themselves  down onto the hawk, completely covering it. The hawk  flapped strongly and drew  away from the starlings, then  resumed its circling. The  starlings rose again into a  loose group, and at that  moment, from over the crest  of the hill came a long tadpole-  shaped mass of birds; I say  tadpole-shaped, for the vanguard was a rounded group,  while the rest flew in a long  .sinuous tail behind, with a  few stragglers flapping frantically in the rear.

The new arrivals joined the original group,  and after milling for a moment  the mass split into three  groups and first one and then  the second formed a "ball"  and hurtled down upon the  hawk. After the second attack  in this fresh assault the hawk  had received enough punishment, and flapped strongly  up and over the hill, seeking  refuge over the grasslands  beyond. The starlings drew  into a flight line and followed,  and all passed from my sight.  I wondered what starling  crime this hawk had committed, but knowing that starlings nest at least twice in a  season, I conjectured the hawk  had robbed a nest, and a cry  for help had gone out. This  incident was wonderful to me,  for the attacks were carried  out with military precision,  almost as though vocal commands were given, first  "Close ranks" and then  "Bombs away I" I had never  seen anything like this before,  and wonder if this "balling"  procedure is a known tactic  in such cases. I thought it  interesting enough to relate  to you.  I find your column always  interesting, and the occasional  pictures are a delight. Keep  up the good work.  All good wishes for the  Holiday Season, and "may  your shadow never grow  less".  Sincerely,  E.Ruth East"  Gibsons Wildlife Club  The new executive for the  club was chosen by acclamation, so it looks like all were  happy with the choices.  There's a meeting of the club  on Wednesday, January 3 at  7:30 p.m. The film Tanker  Bomb will be shown and Art  MePhee, the co-ordinator of  the Provincial Emergency  Programme for the area, will  be on hand to answer questions. It looks like it's going to  be interesting, especially as  we hear over the news that  another tanker is wallowing in  its own oil somewhere off  Spain.  As usual Andy Anderson  reminds people at this time of  year to renew their memberships.  At the last meeting a couple  of weeks ago John Hind Smith  made another plea that the  club look into the condition of  the logging roads around  Chapman Creek. This time the  club supported him unanimously. A letter will be sent  to the Regional Board asking  that they look into this. The  concern of the club is that  erosion may be hazardous to  the fish eggs. Copies of the  letter will be sent to the various concerned parties, including the newly appointed  conservation officer at the  Sechelt Rod and Gun Club  and the Pender Club.  Easyfbhln'  Jim Waldie had a few  friends visiting him at his  home in Hopkins a while  back. They were sitting in the  livingroom when Jim noticed  something splashing in the  ocean. With a pair of binoculars he was able to make out  Look.oour  JANUARY CLEARANCE  SL  JANUARY 3rd  BIG SAVINGS ON EVERYTHING  a sea lion holding a salmon by  the tail. It must have been  playing with it, as every so  often it would submerge and  allow the fish a bit of swimming room; everyone took  turns watching this through  the glasses. As if this wasn't  interesting enough, while  they were watching, an eagle  suddenly came plummeting  down and stole the fish.  The bird had quite a time  wresting the fish into the air,  but finally got a few feet off  the water and headed laboriously over to a rocky point  where it had a feast. I guess  my mother was right when  she warned me against  playing with my food.  Bird meeting  Wayne Diakow, a member  of the Marsh Society in  Sechelt will be holding his  first birding meeting at the  Chatlech Junior Secondary  in Sechelt on January the  11th at 7:30p.m. in Room 112.  It looks like it will be a  winner. Ervio Sian, a renowned bird photographer  will be present. Stan is  presently working on a new  book of bird photographs;  it will be called 'Birds of  B.C.  Another guest will be John  Toochin,   the   Chairman   of  the Vancouver Natural History Society and a renowned  B.C. bird watcher. See you  there.  For further information you  can phone Wayne at 883-9159.  That's all for now, if you  notice anything out of the  ordinary ��� woops, the phone  just rang. Keith Simpson,  the fellow from the Wildlife  Branch who was doing the  heron banding in Pender last  year, was on the other end.  He'll be back up here again  this year to carry on with the  programme initiated in  1978. He's looking for a reasonably-priced house to rent  somewhere in the Harbour  area, from February to  October. If you have a place  available leave a message for  me at the Coast News office.  This year he's hoping to be  able to hire someone locally  as his assistant.  By the way, salmon fishing  is still good. Gary the Gibsons  Wharfinger, caught an eighteen pound red spring last  night.  That's all for sure now, so  if you see anything interesting, give me a call at 886-  2622 or 886-7817, ta.

On garbage  By Maryanne Wesl  Considering his reluctance  to attend the Forum on Waste  Disposal (claiming Port Mellon was too far away to take  any interest in the rest of the  Sunshine Coast) Mr. Hughes'  disparaging comments (Coast  News, December 12) are  somewhat strange. There  seem to be several things he  did not understand.  Of course garbage is a  political issue. Anything  which involves citizens'  money has to be, and the  Korum was the result of the  Regional Board's difficulties  in coming to grips with this  very complex problem, with  little help from thc electorate.  While it's true that the Federal and Provincial politicians  arc not directly involved, they  were here at the invitation of  ihe students who, rightly,  in my opinion, believe their  representatives should know  about problems which beset  their constituents, and because both Jack Pearsall and  Don Lockstead had been  supportive of the Student  Research group's earlier  Forums.  The Regional Board asked  the students at Elphinstone  to research and present the  Waste Disposal Forum to  challenge public apathy and  to bring both the problems we  face and the options into  public discussion. Not only  the Directors but also the  students are pragmatic  enough to know that in general the "public doesn't care  how much  garbage  it pro-  plex this garbage disposal  problem is, that like many  other of today's issues, there  is no simple solution, what  have the students to show for  the three-and-a-half months  work on this project? They  have had practice in researching a complex issue  and being able to lift relevant  data from an immense store  of material; they have learned  how to use the reference  facilities of Vancouver Public Library; they have gained  knowledge of some of the  government departments and  agencies, university departments and citizens' groups  which also provide resource  material; they have had practice in the art of letter writing,  letters asking for, and of information, invitations and  lhank-you's; and experience  contacting people in government and business by telephone.  Other student experiences  connected to the Forum  include practice in writing  press releases and accounts of  day-to-day activities; much  art work and lettering; technical skills in setting up and  use of television and audio  equipment; overcoming self-  consciousness and fear of the  unfamiliar; experience in  meeting people, acting as  chairman for meetings, conducting interviews with the  general public, with experts  in a particular field, and  politicians.  They have developed the  ability to resolve problems and  come to a consensus, whether  it be a technical,  moral or  Guess Where*  rSs,���' ���-.-������v-*-AM-~!*amM   . .  The usual prize of $5.00 will be awarded for the correct location of the above drawn  from the barrel. Send your entries to the Coast News, Box 460, Gibsons. Last  week's winner was Cole Edwardsen of Box 196, Madeira Park who correctly identified the statue at the white house on Irvine's Landing Point In the mouth of Pender  Harbour.  More letters  American war movies  duces, doesn't want to pay for  organizational issue; the abili-  its disposal, and will turn  instantly into snarly 'concerned citizens' if a new dump  or incinerator is planned  within their sight or smell".  The object of the exercise  was to raise public awareness. It is difficult to judge  success because the Forum  obviously has to be just a part  of an on-going discussion ���  and the preparation reached  out to many more people  than those who actually  attended. Certainly it was to  be expected that the majority  of those who would take the  time to go to such a function  would be those who are concerned, the people who care  about the environment, about  thc sort of world we are going  to pass on to the next generation; people who care enough  to change their lifestyle.  It was obvious from the  displays put together by the  students that many of them  are concerned about the future, wondering how their  generation will cope with the  problems caused by our  default. Many of them commented that "working on the  Forum had made them much  more conscious of litter  and waste".  I've heard some others  query not so much the value of  the Forum but the value to  highschool students of using  school time and energy on  such issues when they would  bc better occupied with academic studies. I find this  surprising at a time when  many of the unemployed in  our society are highly educated university graduates,  and when we have come to  understand that education  cannot be cut off from the reality of life in the community.  The strength of the Communications 11 course being  offered at Elphinstone this  year is surely that besides  teaching technical skills and  theory it involves students  actively in their community  and its daily life and problems.  Besides acquiring an understanding of how very com-  ty to share knowledge and  skills with others ��� to be able  to work with others; an understanding of the interdependence of individual and differing talents; an understanding of the interdependence of  individuals within the larger  community, for the accountability with which teachers and  elected representatives must  live; the satisfaction and  reward of working together  for a common purpose for the  good of the community; the  opportunity to be a self-  starter and work out one's  ideas.  This is good experience  whatever one plans to do later.  And, Mr. Hughes, the students did take a "quiet door-  to-door" survey, by phone.  Oh, yes, a few people hung  up, and it was no scientific  poll, but maybe things aren't  quite as hopeless as you  seem to think.  Editor:  I see by the ads on the TV  that we are going to be bombarded with a slew of American war movies again.  For almost forty years we  Canadians have been bar-  raged with movies, novels  and television shows about  what everyone else did during  World War II. And if you are  of my generation, post war  baby boom, one tends to get  the mistaken impression that  we did very little. Well 1 for  one am quite tired of hearing  about what 'everyone else'  did and would like to say a  word or two about 'us'.  During the years 1939-1945,  the Dominion of Canada enlisted 1,086,771 men for participation in World War II.  These men fought campaigns  in Sicily, Italy, the Aleutian  Islands, Hong Kong, France,  Belgium, Holland, and  Germany. Everywhere  Canadian soldiers were in the  thick of it: Dunkirk, Dieppe,  Leonforte, Ortona, Cassino,  and Normandy, just to name  a few.  On land, air, and sea, we  were there.  Canadian pilots participated  in the Battle of Britain, Malta,  and North Africa, flying the  famed 'Spitfire'. And they  flew 'Lancaster' and 'Liberator' bombers over Germany.  We hunted U-boats in the  North Atlantic, escorted  convoys, sent Destroyers to  Area F A.P.C.  West Howe Sound (Area  F) Director, David Hunter  and Alternate . Director  David Fyles, named the  A.P.C. co-ordinate and advise  on all problems and solutions  for this area.  Named were Mrs. Nancy  Douglas for North Road,  Mrs. Joan Park for Grantham's, Mrs. Laurella Hay  and Mrs. Ruth Hogberg  for Soames Point, Ray Chamberlin and Mrs. Joyce Sme-  thurst for Hopkins Landing,  Mrs. Shirley Maeey and  Marvin Iverson for Langdale,  Gordon Stephens for Williamson's along with Special  Advisors Don Hoops for Economic Feasibility and Don  Head for Marine Services  Mrs. Joyce Smethurst will  act as Secretary and Phillip  Hopkins will act as communications officer.  The West Howe Sound  (Area F) A.P.C. will meet  EVERY third TUESDAY at  LANGDALE SCHOOL. The  meetings will be open to the  public.  On the Beautiful Sunshine Coast at Gower Point  ��� Guestrooms (BreakfastIncluded)  ��� Dining Room    886-9033  Vour Hostess  Connie Achterberg  At the inaugural meeting,  the A.P.C. agreed that the  main concerns for this large  area are: joint use of schools,  recreation, beach access,  waste disposal, water, sewage, settlement plan, industrial areas, and planning.  All citizens that have  problems should discuss it  first with the A.P.C. member  named for their district, but  may at any time bring it to  the attention of the monthly  A.P.C. or directly to the  Director (886-7075) or Alternate Director (886-7714).

At home Canada's per capita production was the highest  of all the Allied Nations. We  built 11,000 aircraft, 31,000  armoured vehicles, 83,000  artillery pieces, almost  600 ships, and turned out  thousands of millions of  rounds of ammunition, big  and small calibre.  In foodstuffs we produced,  and shipped to Great Britain and Russia, millions of  bushels of wheat, millions of  barrels of flour, and tons of  ham, cheese, eggs, beef, and  fish.  Our steel mills doubled  production, and Canada's  aluminum production in  1943 was greater than what  the rest of the world produced  in 1939.  For a country with a population of eleven million during  the war years, I'd say this  was quite an accomplishment.  Wolf Christiansen,  Gibsons, B.C.  History  appreciated  Editor:  RE: The Salvation Army  Camp Hopkins Landing.  We were very interested  to see the photo and read the  accompanying historic comments concerning West Howe  Sound, July 1928, and The  Salvation Army Camp.  We note that the original  photo has been donated to  Elphinstone Museum by Jim  Leith in memory of J.T.  White. Is there any possibility of our obtaining a copy  for our archives? Also, we  would be grateful to receive  any further historical, information pertaining to the commencement of our Camp, if  such is available.  We will appreciate any  assistance you can give us in  this request, and we will  await your reply.  God bless you.  Donald Kerr,  (Major)  Divisional Secretary  Displeased  Editor:  This letter has been delayed  but I must comment on a  matter which I found very  disturbing. I was pleased  when I chanced on what appeared to be an interesting  and informative programme  Neighbourly News following  the 8 a.m. newscast on C.B.C.  My pleasure was shortlived. The third item was an  editorial from your paper  which stated that when Richard Nixon engineered  the break-in of an opposition  party office and tried to cover  up, he had to resign.  That, then, was compared  to the "crimes" committed  by our national police force,  e.g. "Buildings burned,  break-ins, theft, government  cover-ups" and so on. The  editorial concluded with a  scathing denunciation of the  ethical standards of the  Canadian people for condoning all of this.  I agree that certain ethical  standards need denunciation  but you are condemning the  wrong persons. I submit that  your paper and the C.B.C.  programme should be condemned.  Buildings burned: One  barn suspected of being used  by subversives for meetings  with known American terrorists. The office of a radical  news agency entered without warrant when suspected  of being tied in with terrorists. Dynamite stolen in an  effort to penetrate terrorist  cells known to be' carrying  on subversive actions.  True, errors in judgement  were made by over-zealous  officers but how easy it is to  be Monday morning quarterbacks! A Cabinet Minister  had been murdered; an official  representative of the United  Kingdom kidnapped and held  for ranson; 90 bombings,  25 hold-ups, 6 deaths all  attributable to terrorists ���  27 injuries in the Montreal  Stock Exchange bombing  alone.  That was the atmosphere  in which these wrong-doings  took place. It is totally unrealistic to compare these  happenings with the "politically inspired matrix of wire-  traps, burglaries, lies, forgery, strong-arm tactics and  Museum  exhibit  The famous Coelacanth, a  fish found living off the east  coast of Africa in December,  1938, is the topic for this  exhibit.  Fishes of this kind were  thought to have been extinct  for seventy million years, and  to be nearly 150 million years  older than the first dinosaurs.  Similar fishes were probably  the ancestors of all land  inhabiting animals, including  man.  The exciting discovering of  this ancient fish is depicted  in the display, along with a  realistic cast of the fish, a  225 million year old fossil and  photographs of actual specimens.  The Old Fourlegs exhibit  was created by the National  Museum of Natural Sciences  and is distributed throughout  British Columbia by the B.C.  Provincial Museum's travelling exhibition programme.  The exhibit will be on display in the Elphinstone  Pioneer Museum, Gibsons,  from January 8 to January  26, 1979. The museum will  be open Saturdays from 9  a.m. to 4 p.m., however the  facilities are available at any  time to schools and tour  groups.

It wasn't as  severe as was the great slump  of the Thirties, but just the  same, there was widespread  unemployment. About that  time, a logger out of work  appeared at our place and  asked father if he could stay  in one of the Linnehan's old  bunkhouses that was still  standing. When permission  was given, he proceeded to  make himself at home in  the old shack. He built a bunk  and filled it with old hay that  he got from father's barn for  a mattress, and that bunk  became a favourite hangout  and resting place for him. He  would occupy it sometimes  most of the day, getting up  perhaps long enough to get  something to eat. That something consisted mostly of  rolled oats porridge which was  cheap!!) and milk that he got  from us. I don't know how he  worked in the logging woods,  but during his stay with us, his  greatest exertion on most days  consisted of his walking about  a couple of hundred feet to our  house to get milk, and back.  As a natural result of his  aversion to any physical  activity, his clothes, which he  wore all night, gradually got  dirtier and dirtier. The matter  went so far that at various  gatherings of the Finlanders,  the women started to talk  about it, and some of this got  to his ears. Finally he bestirred himself enough to  wash his pants, and when he  went out wearing them, he  vowed that he would never  wash them again. The washing, he said, had removed the  accumulation of dirt and the  wind blew through, and that  made them drafty.
