Position of the marina at the end of the ramp  makes expensive dredging unnecessary.  Langdale Queen's future elsewhere  The Langdale Queen will not  live out the remainder of her  useful life in Gibsons.  This has been a dream of many,  ever since it was made public  that she had ended her days as  Ihe oldest, fastest, and best  loved ship lo carry people and  cars between Horseshoe Bay and  Langdale.  Many wishful ideas for her  rejuvenation have been the  topic of dicussion at Council  meetings. Chamber of Commerce  meetings, and almost every group  that sat together to look into the  possibilities for the future of  the Gibsons harbour area.  A recreation centre, a yacht  club,    a    floating    restaurant.  a convention centre, a training  centre for all types of skills  affiliated wilh the water. These  and many more possibilities have  been looked at as a way to keep  the old lady alive.  On Wednesday, February 22.  however, a deputation from the  Chamber of Commerce, Jon Mc-  The Langdale Queen(as was)sits abandoned in Coal Harbour in Vancouver. The future of  the old ship is uncertain but it would seem to lie elsewhere than on the Sunshine Coast.  Rae and Terry Amiel; representatives from Council. Ted Hume  and Larry Tralnor; Mike Poppel  from Langdale in an advisory  capacity; Ian Morrow, the drive  behind the idea lo bring her to  Gibsons, and Bob Gentiles,  her one time chief engineer,  went to have one final look at  her to see if she could be saved  from ending her days at the  breaker's yard.  The verdict was, that since  so much of her insides had been  removed by one of the previous  owners, it would be an unfeasible  proposition. Her engine room  had been gutted, the copper  piping, heating systems, and  most items of any value were  gone. In the words of one of thc  company, "It's like seeing an  old lover being raped".  Ever since she was taken off  her run stories of her progress  have been filtering back lo the  area. She's doing great; she's  bankrupt; somebody else has  bought her and is fixing her up;  she's finished; somebody stole  hcrpropellors.  All or none of these stories  could have been true, but at  this moment she is sitting in  Coal Harbour and her only  companions arc the watchman  and his guard dog.  Labonte recognized at council meeting  At the regular meeting of the Gibsons Council held on Tues- said tha, thc concerned Citizens  day. February 21st. Mayor Lome Blain made a ceremonial Committee had agreed again  presentation of a gavel to former mayor Larry Labonte. The this year to organize the Sea  gavel was presented to Labonte in recognition of outstanding Cavalcade. It had been agreed  service to the village of Gibsons as mayor from 1974-77. that federal M.P.Jack Pearsall  In presenting the gavel, Mayor Blain said, "I hope I can do  as well as Larry Labonte did during my term in office."  In accepting the gavel, ex-mayor Labonte commented: "I  hope you do better than I did, Mr. Mayor, because I'm still a  taxpayer in this village."  In other council business it  was recommended that Gibsons Library Committee should  correspond directly with the Regional Board concerning what  was considered an inequitable  allocation of library funds on  the Sunshine Coast. More happily,   it   was   reported   at   the  council meeting that grants  will be available to the Gibsons  Museum Society through Youth  Employment funds available to  the village council.  Under committee reports  Alderman Larry Trainor reported  on the Tourism arrangements  being made by the village.   He  provincial M.L.A. Don Lockstead,  Regional Board Chairman Harry Almond, and Sechelt Mayor  Harold Nelson would be invited  to participate in the festivities.  Trainor also reported that the  steps to the Government Wharf  had been repaired and commended the people at Smitty's Marina  for a splendid job. Trainor  also reported to council on the  developments in the Harbour  Development and projected  marina for Gibsons Harbour. The  report   on   this   undertaking   is  presented elsewhere.  There was some discussion of  the proposal which has been  mooted in the village over thc  past week or so that the Gospel  Rock area should be acquired  as a park before it be swallowed  up by subdivision. Alderman  Ted Hume seemed opposed to  the acquisition of the area for  a park on the strength of thc  fact that such acquisition would  prove too costly. Works Superintendent Fred Holland, a lifetime resident of the village,  requested permission to speak  on the issue and said that as a  long-time resident of this area  he thought it would be a great  shame if it were lost to thc vil-  Musical  play coming  The sailors are swabbing the  decks to thc hornpipe. King  Rat and his pack are swinging  their tails to a disco beat, and  meanwhile back at thc palace  the belly dancers arc swaying lo  cheer up thc Sultan. And in thc  midst of all Ihis. Dick Whining-  ton and his faithful Puss, the  biggest cat in all the land (and  some would say the coolest!)  are out to seek fame, fortune,  and of course, the love of a beautiful girl. And where is all Ihis  intrigue and romance taking  place? Why. right here on the  Sunshine Coast!  What began as a Monday night  Drama and Pantomime class  that the Fitness Service was  offering in Pender Harbour has  now become a fullscalc production of thc musical play. Dick  Wellington and his Cat. Under  the able direction of Ronnie  Dunn and Robi Peters, actors and  actresses of all ages, singers  (the whole Pender Harbour  Community Choir!) and dancers  combine to recount thc won-  erous adventures of thc country  boy who goes lo the city in  search of "streets paved wilh  gold". But this is not your  average telling of thc tale, for  local eyes have seen humour  in situations, and thus you'll  find many comic alterations such  that the action more aptly fits  a West Coast frame of mind.  Sure to tickle your fancy no  matter what your age, this is  ideal family entertainment, and  as a pre-Easter treat for grandparents and children, there arc  special rates for seniors and  students. To make it easy for  people all over thc peninsula  to attend the play, three performances will be given; Saturday, March 11 at 8:00 p.m.  in the Pender Harbour Communitv Hall; Sunday, March   12 at  .Please turn to Page Four  lage. It was also pointed out  at the meeting that much of the  area in question - to thc dip  beyond Gospel Rock ��� is already within the village boundaries.  .Spokesman Ian Morrow for the Standing Committee "for the  Development of Gibsons Harbour and Marina announced thai  initial response from the involved government agencies had  been very favourable In the latest package plan for the development of the harbour al Gibsons and the continuous rejuvenation  of the Lower Village. The announcement was made at a meeting held on Thursday. February 2.1.  Morrow said that the Standing Committee, comprised "I  two political members, Committee Chairman Alderman Larry  Trainor and Alderman Lorraine Goddard, and two non-political  members in the persons of Morrow and Terry Amiel, had recently been in close contact with the Department of Public  Works, thc Department of Transport, and the Department of  Fishing and the Environment and that Ihe results had been  most encouraging.  Morrow reported that under  the auspices of the Department  of Fishing and the Environment  a study of climate would be  undertaken to determine the  worst conditions that the Squamish winds caused in Gibsons  Harbour. Based on these studies  it could be determined what the  placing and type of the required  breakwater would be. Morrow  also said that thc officials in the  Department of Transport could  sec no problems at the moment  under the Navigable Harbours  Act.  It was also reported at the  press conference that Economist  Philip A.Ebey had been appointed on a full-time basis by  thc Department of Fishing  and the Environment to serve  as an advisor on the project.  The re-constituted marina  proposal calls lor a 350 boat  marina in the harbour area.  Some of the results of Ihe preliminary studies should be available by thc firsl of April. The  cost figure for the project could  not be determined until the  initial economic studies were  completed. Initial plans for the  project had been prepared by  Ian Morrow and Kevin Ryan.  ettve feature  n is thai be  would be ex  bay ii would  I ain  with u  The Standing Committee,  in addition to the consultation  carried on with the government  agencies, have also been dis  cussing thc project with Ihe  Gibsons and District Chamber  of Commerce and representatives of the Fishermen's Union  locally. It was re-emphasized  al thc Thursday press conference  that commercial fishermen annually brought between $500,000  and $750,000 into the Gibsons  area and more fishermen might  work out of this area il there  were more facilities for docking  their boats and repairing their  nets. The present Government  Wharf is tremendously overcrowded and should Ihe projected marina become a reality  it would be turned over  commercial boats entirely.  in tin  Il is thc overcrowded conditions and inadequate facilities  which have aroused the Interest  of the Department ol Fishing and  the Environment. If economic  studies prove thai thc marina  would prove of definite economic  value to the fishing fleet the  department could be expected  to pn�� li at least 50% ol Ihe  costs involved.  One ol the .mi  ol the present pi  cause the marina  tended out into th  obviate the necessity  dredging ill the II,i\  at  consequent   major  reduclio   the cosl of the marina.  Commodore Morrow emphasized thai what u;is envisaged  \iiis purely the provision ,>i  moorage and thc new facility  would nut compete ill any way  with the present marinas. The  showers and washroom facilities  mi the marina would be hooked  up iu the village's presi nt  sewage system. Eventually pump  out facilities would be availal '<������  for the holding tanks of small  craft.  Committee member Alderman  Goddard emphasized thai the  marina is seen as self-sufficient  and self-liquidating enterprise.  "If economic studies don't show  thai it will be self-liquidating  it will not be proceeded wiih.'  she said.

The  recent Liberal convention gives clear  indication that an election is not too  far distant on the federal scene and no  matter how you look at it it is a dismal  prospect. The Prime Minister seems to  just about put the finishing touches to  his portrayal of Louis XIV. Lc Grand  Monarque of France contemplating the  future is said to have said. "Apres moi  la deluge". Trudeau's stance is more of  a "Sans moi, la deluge". He apparently  has convinced himself that Canada is  impossible without him and the likelihood  is that hc will bend all his energies in  the forthcoming months to persuading  thc rest of us that hc is right.  It could be argued that in Canada  we don't vote for prime ministers as  they do presidents in the U.S.A., but it  would seem in fact that one of the legacies of the Trudeau years is precisely  that we arc increasingly inclined in this  country to support the leader rather than  the party. Ever since he switched his  political allegiance to join the Liberals  and then adopted the mantle of Lester  Pearson he has single-handedly kept the  Liberal party in power. Remember that  this monolithic party only twenty years  ago was down to just over forty seats  in the Canadian Parliament and even  then discredited after years of power,  corruption and developing arrogance.  Trudeau and the media-fed Trudcau-  mania saved it from extinction and ever  since the search has been among the  other parties for a leader with the charisma of Pierre Eliot Trudeau. The Conservatives tried to buck the trend with Robert  Stanfield. an honest Conservative  politician and a sound and proven administrator. It's the feeling here that they  gave up on him too soon and Ihat if he  were still Leader of the Opposition  Trudeau's defeat in the forthcoming  election would be assured.  Whether even Trudeau's defeat would  be enough for Canada is highly problematic. In effect both major parties have the  same philosophy and it is a philosophy  that has catered to the huge multi-nation-  al corporations that arc beginning to  show their true colours as corporate  citizens of Canada. For years now  Cassandra-like there have been people  trying to tell the Canadian people that  thc degree to which their resources and  industry were falling into foreign hands  was a danger to thc nation's future.  They were not heeded. Canada, with  vast resources and a small population,  was able to enjoy a high standard of  living while conducting a giveaway of  her resources and the control of her  resources at a monumental rate. There  were enough crumbs off the banquet  table to persuade the few millions of  Canadians scattered and divided by their  own geography that they were doing  fine. Now the chickens are coming home  to roost and the illusion grows very thin.  To counteract the situation we have a  Prime Minister grown ever more vain  and shallow who, having been elected to  keep Quebec within Confederation,  seems about to fight for power next  time out with basically the same appeal  that hc addressed to the Canadian  people ten years ago. Ten years later  the problem he was elected to solve is  still, he says the paramount problem  facing thc nation and only he can solve  it. We've heard it before, Pierre.  Also ten years later the Canadian economy seems to be in its worst shape  since the Second World War. The Liberals change Finance Ministers the  way the rest of us change socks and it  is apparent that they have no idea what  to do about it so they'll holler loudly  about Rene Levesque in thc hope that it  will keep the rest of us from thinking  about the state of the economy and the  fact that virtually on the heels of an  economic meeting at which great lip  service was paid to economic restraint  they announce yet again the largest  federal budget ever.  When one contemplates the federal  scene in Canada it is unavoidable thai  one should experience a major dose  of the blahs, and yet it is this very scene  that we would ask the people of Quebec  to continue to share with us. It is still  very possible to believe that they will  but unless some sort of spark of awakening and sensible creativity is discernible  somewhere amidst that morass of turgid  and hypocritical mediocrity over which  Canada's very own Grand Monarch  presides with an absolute control only  exceeded by his arrogance it's really  difficult lo be cheerful about Canada's  immediate future whether Quebec stays  in or goes out.  The Marina proposal  Particular attention is drawn to thc advertisement that appears in this paper  on behalf of the village of Gibsons this  week. It purports to determine the  amount of local demand that exists for  moorage in the projected new marina  facility in Gibsons Harbour. We dealt  last week editorially with the reasons  why this particular marina proposal  seems from this corner to deserve serious  consideration. Without repealing ourselves unnecessarily, il would appear  lo  be  worth  saying  that   the  plan  is  modest enough in scope to be worth  supporting and holds the promise of  offering definite economic advantages  to the entire village and to the harbour  area in particular.  Bearing in mind the crowded conditions which afflict the present wharf, the  diffictiltiesd facing the commercial  fisherman, and Ihe lack of parking which  is paralysing the harbour area at the  present time, this latest marina proposal may well be worthy of support.  from the files of Coast Nam  5 YEARS AGO  Mayor Ben Lang warned Sechelt  council that the village was experiencing growing pains and more  meetings would be needed to cope  with the situation.  I0YF.ARSAGO  School trustee Celia Fisher was  interviewed on T.V.Ihis week.  It was announced this week that  M.P.Jack Davis is lo speak at Elphinstone Secondary School about how-  to make our community a better place  to live.  15 YEARS AGO  Elphinstone Secondary School  won accreditation from the Department of Education.  It was announced this week Ihat  thc new hospital in Sechell will  probably gel Ihe go-ahead from Victoria. Construction start is expected  soon.  20 YEARS AGO  Federal politicians visited the  Sunshine Coasl Ihis week. Sitting  member    Liberal    James    Sinclair  and the Hon. Howard Green. Minister of Public Works in the Diefcn-  baker Government both visited thc  Sunshine Coast.  25 YEARS AGO  Members of the Howe Sound  Farmer's Institute petitioned the  Village Commissioners of Gibsons  to study thc parking problems in  the village. It was said that so many  vehicles are left parked in the street  thai shoppers have difficulty finding  parking.  Benny "Bobo" Paul of Sechelt  won bis 1.1th professional fight this  week in Los Angeles when he knocked  out Pedro Gonzales in the sixth  round.  .10 YEARS AGO  No immediate hope was given  this week by the Department of  Public Works for construction of a  mile and a half road to link thc  lower road from Halfmoon Bay with  thc road at North-West Bay Hill.  The minister encouraged the members of the Board of Trade lo encour-  age their efforts.  .'.   ��������� j^Tri        <-���*   t*  -      .'" > ��".

Sun Ray, last home built by Harry  Roberts, is seen backdropped by a few of the trees that clothed  most of his 140 acres of land, which stretched from an open beach  frontage to the quiet shores of Cockburn Bay. Building contains  20 walls, 5 levels, 1,000 pieces of cedar log, and 350 hand-cut glass  panes to let in sunshine through simulated spider-web windows.  On the shore just above high tide Harry built his last vessel in the  style of a Chinese junk.   He never launched this last dream-boat.  A mile inland from the house, Yolanda Lake and Zoe Lake retain thc  names of two youngest daughters, and Chackchack Lake commemorates the series of boats by that name built and sailed by Harry  Roberts. While it is true that Remembering Roberts Creek, a book  produced by cooperative volunteer effort, is currently on sale, the  fates forfend that this caption should be taken as a promotion of  this nostalgic history of a fascinating community. L.R.Peterson  '.i y*dL  ���aw*-'  Musings  John Burnside  Slings & Arrows  George Matthews  Funerals have never been  amongst my favourite exercises. In Scotland they tend to  be somewhat grim affairs where  the women stay home and only  the black-suited men attend the  graveside ceremony. In Canada  in my experience they arc no  great joy either. I once spent  three days as chief male mourner  at an uncle's funeral in Montreal where I sal with the widow  and greeted mourners beside  the open casket.  Twice I have been to ceremonies lhal followed 'the Irish  custom of holding a wake at which  as far as I understand it. the aim  is to have a party in the name of  Ihe deceased which he would  have been happy to attend. It  is one of the aspects of the  Irish lhal reminds us that once  their island was the lasl bastion  of eivili/ation in Western Europe.  They had a wake for John  Daly in Pender Harbour on  Saturday. Il was a moving and  memorable occasion.  Al the start there was some  concern on the part of the organizers because no one really  had much of an idea what a  wake in fact was, but as it  turned out no one need have  worried. The ladies of Pender  Harbour produced a magnificent  abundance of eating-stuffs and  the eulogies presented were  moving and sin,ere tributes to  Ihe man in whose name we were  meeting,  The range of speakers who had  found their way to Ihe Madeira  Park Community Hall on Saturday afternoon, moved by their  desire to honour John Daly with  their presence and a few words,  was remarkable indeed. They  ranged from ex-Liberal Cabinet  Minister and newspaper colum-  nisi Paul St.Pierre, through Jack  Nichol, President of the United  Fishermen and Allied Workers  Union, through a bcttirbanned  and elderly spokesman of an  East Indian Association who  delivered his oration in Urdu  translated into English by a  younger man. There were  Pender Harbour fishermen who  spoke with moving simplicity of  their respect and affection for  their neighbour; there was a  well-known west coast broadcaster and writer Ben Metcalfe,  who spoke of how John Daly  taught him how lo troll for salmon. Indian spokesman and  activist Angic Dennis was there  and she spoke of Ihe affection  that she and her children felt  for John Daly. She told how after  a visit al her home John Daly  hod noticed that her seven  year old son loved bacon and  two days after the visit thc  little boy received thc first piece  of mail ever addressed to him  personally. It was from John  Daly and it was a tin of bacon.  And so it went. Well-known  Canadian poet Pal Lane from  Middle Point was there and he  read lhc assembly with obvious  ,Relight sonic of the philosophic  jottings and maxims that John  Daly scribbled everywhere on  the walls of his house and boal.  A verse tribute by Lane appears  on this page. Howie While of  Pender Harbour spoke with obvious emotion. He said he had  come prepared to say something  cheerful but the realization had  grown on hint that after a life  time spent in Pender Harbour  hc was attending his first public  meeting in the Madeira Park  Community Hall al which the long  figure of John Daly would not  be unfolding itself lo contribute  to the proceedings.  The speakers spoke of (he  causes lhal John Daly had fought  for. In recent months he has been  active in opposition to the B.C.  Hydro line from Cheekeye to  Dunsmuir; he wrote a piece for  this newspaper just lasl month  reporting al first hand lhc meeting held in Clearwater, B.C.. to  protest Ihe proposed nuclear  reactor in that area: he was a  key figure in the recent victorious battle against the proposed  Macdonald Dam which he argued would seriously affect the  Fraser River fish stocks.  Whether Ihe speakers spoke  of Ihe greal causes lhal John  Daly espoused and fought lor  in defense of Ihis coasl where  he was bom and lived, or whether  Ihcy spoke of Ihe simple human  gestures of kindliness and  Ihoughlfulncss, they were united  in their tributes to ihe selflessness of the man. He had been  a tireless worker for social  causes and an equally' tireless  and thoughtful neighbour.  Nol all of those who spoke  agreed with John Daly's philosophies and opinions. A near  neighbour stood and spoke with  Pender Harbour directness of  the fact that hc had disagreed  with John Daly consistently for  years about religion and politics but in his presence and his  standing to speak he also spoke.  More than one strong man acknowledged tears al the receipt  of the news.  Gilbert Joe of thc Sechelt  Indian band and longtime friend  of John Daly acted as Master of  Ceremonies.  Long night-time miles and  Sunday morning deadlines  made it impossible for me to  stay late to enjoy Ihe festivities  thai followed ihe supper bul I  feel, that I now know what an  Irish wake must be and why il  should be intcr-nalionalized.  As someone who was there said  to mc on Sunday morning il  was nol John Daly's death lhal  was being acknowledged as much  as it was his life, lhc spirit of  John Daly in life was a spirit  which sought to bring social justice ant', human decency into the  affairs , men. Last Sunday in  Madeira I'ark in the hall where  hc hail so often risen lo speak  his pi.ee over thc years lhal  spiril was never more manifest. In death. John Daly had  shown thai what he had always  striven for in life was possible  of achievement.  He demonstrated finally whai  he had always known to be  true. When men so act in thc  quiet of neighbourliness or in  the public heal of social dispute  that no one can doubt Ihat  their aims are unselfish and their  goals arc for thc common good  then Ihe chasms of race and  philosophic stance which so often  seem to divide mankind can become irrelevant and thc common  humanity which unites us becomes manifest to all.  John Daly knew that all of  mankind despite its creeds,  philosophies and skin colours  has so much more in common  than those things that divide  it. He knew that such divisions  could he overcome hy men of  unceasing vigilance and good  will and lasl Saturday in Madeira  Park he proved it.  Trade unionism in Canada has  fallen on hard limes of late.  Strikes, walkouts and what  many people believe lo be  excessive wage demands have  given unions a bad name. In a  recent national poll, thc majority  of those pulled believed that the  power arid influence of unions  is to: srciil. Much of this antiunion icntimenl has been pro-  moled by public relations campaigns directed by organizations  opposed to union activity both in  Ihe United Stales and Canada  but much of the responsibility  for this sentiment must be accepted by unions themselves.  During the past thirty years  trade unionists have become  complacent in the belief thai  firsl of all people will always  remember the struggles and sacrifices of lhc early trade unionists and will therefore continue  to fight the good fight and.  second, thai since the members of  unions were ihe people themselves, Ihcy would not attack  their own organizations, That  after thirty years, union leaders  slill don't seem lo have learned  ihe fallacies of these assumptions tells us something aboul  the greatest weakness of organized trade unionism, lhc Inability to change and lhc way  in which labour leaders, once  they gain power are corrupted by  the symbols of lhal power.  Recently however, lhc formerly  insignificant and relatively undervalued workers in one prominent  Canadian industry, lhc hank  workers, have done more to rekindle the spiril of trade unionism  in Canada than all of the old  established unions have been  able lo do in the past thirty years.  In bank workers we have all of  Ihe exploitation and unfairness  that gave unionism ils early  life and lire. Wc have a public  for John Daly  The house is locked, the roof is done,  I slop my pounding, gather up my tools  and stare. In ihe wel Haze  a greal blue heron slides west  a single line of smoke in ihe evening/  air.  Pat Lane  thai recognizes the injustices  and supports these workers in  their struggles lor improved  conditions.  There arc over 100.000 workers  in the hanking industry in Canada, the majority of them women.  It is the leadership of these  women in banking that has established thy beginnings of trade  unionism in 'that industry. Thc  conditions for the further rapitl  development of unionism in  banking are ideal. First we have  a large segment of the workers  who arc underpaid and discriminated against, and secondly we  have ,i situation in which large  numbers of women are dominated  by relatively small numbers of  men.  Of the sub-Management employees in banking. H.V'i, ore  women while only .V'i> of management level employees are women.  Starting salaries for women in  banking are less than 18.00(1  per year, of those in banking  making under $20,000 per year,  u0����� are women while of those  making over $20,000, 1s>";, are  men.  As far as promotion opportunities are concerned women arc  generally restricted to low level  promotions. These women often  find themselves in the ironic  position of training the' men  who will ultimately become  their supervisors. How many  men have yon seen working as  posters or tellers recently?  In fairness, there are a number  uf factors which mitigate against  women in hanking. Firsl of all.  historically women have worked  in hanks for short, pie-marriage  careers and so. at least in the  past, were nol necessarily  ambitious for promotion. In  Ihese limes, when women ore  often expected and even want lo  combine marriage and a career.  this factor is disappearing.  Women have generally been  more reluctant to accept postings  in olhcr communities, which is  a part of advancement in banking  careers. Many women in Ihe  past have worked in banks to  supplement thc family income  and have been unwilling to accept more responsibility. Times  arc changing however and the  emergence of a union movement  in banking reflects those changes.  That women make good bankers  is more than evident in the fact  that mosi hankers are women.  Il was lo fighl jusl these kind  of injustices and to improve  thc lot of working people Ihat  trade unionism developed in  Canada. While the beginnings  of Canadian unionism have been  obscured by lime and circumstance, the emergence of these  women bankers should remind  us all Ihat ihe wealth and prosperity of working people in  Canada grew out of just such a  struggle.

MJ-J01J  About Hydro Rates  Dear Sir:  Just a little tribute to my good  friend John Daly. I don't feel that  hc was the sort of guy who would  want a whole lot of fuss made of  anything he did, so we'll make  this brief.  John was never afraid of saying  or writing what hc believed to  be thc truth and it was no coincidence that he invariably spoke  on behalf of the underdog.  Bureaucracy and all it stands for  were, to John, what a red cloth  is to a bull and it didn't matter  how big the opponent was, he  was in there like a gladiator.  The other side of John was a  kind, considerate person, willing  to help anyone and in fact going  out of his way to do so on many  occasions. He was a hard and  conscientious worker at whatever  he undertook to do and I think,  perhaps, that was his undoing.  He'd think nothing about driving  to Langdale from his home in  Garden Bay, catching the first  ferry, spending an exhausting  day stating his cose or supporting someone else's in some  smoke-filled hull in Vancouver  and then coming back, maybe  on thc lost ferry, and driving  all thc way back to Garden Bay.  But that's thc sort of guy he was.  It was great to be the friend  of a man like this and he will  be missed by all who knew and  respected him.

We also believe  that mothers benefit from this  type of experience us they con  meet other women with interests  and problems similar to their  own.

To the Editor:  May we ask your help to reach  the people in your area who  heat their houses electrically?  We wonder, do they know  what is hitting them? B.C.  Hydro's new rates will force  them to pay now for this year's  costs and profits, for future  construction and profits, and a bit  extra to cover profits it thinks  it should have mode in the post.  To verify this they need only  read Hydro's own advertisements.  When Mr. Bonner took over  B.C.Hydro hc complained of  having surplus power. He  told us to live better electrically .Hi prevent the waste of this  power. Now he wants us to  conserve. Of course we have  been doing our best to conserve,  spurred by inflation: with the  proposed rates, some of us will  spend a quarter of our income  for the power we must buy.  We are trapped - had wc heated  with oil or gas we could have  altered our systems to run on  coal or wood, but in on all-electric house this can't be done.  So Hydro has no competition.  It claims lo match its demands  to the general rate of inflation.  But for most of us who use  electric heat, the new rates will  be 20% to 24% higher in 1978  than last year. For a local householder. 1977 costs were 32%  higher than 197b: 1976 costs  were 9% higher than 1975;  1975 costs were 20"',, higher than  1974; from 1974 lo 1977. thc increase was 73%; despite urgent  efforts to conserve energy.  Recently Premier Bennett,  along wilh eight oilier Provincial premiers, pledged his  best efforts lo hold inflation  to b'",i per year. The Hon.  Jack Davis. Minister for Energy,  'transport, and Communications,  is a Director of B.C.Hydro. We,  lhc Committee for Responsible  Hydro Rates (CRHR), plan to ask  Mr. Davis to act in Cabinet  to give effect lo Mr. Bennett's  promise. We believe Ihe Government can and should restrain  its Crown Corporation; if necessary hy replacing Mr. Bonner.  We are not alone: 90% of  recent housing, we ore told,  is electrically heated. We would  like people who shore our problems to send us a postcard  or a note authorising us to represent them, by any proper  means, in bringing to the Government our expectation that they  will give us reasonable protection against B.C.Hydro's demands. Add your name and  address, and mail to:  Box 189, Victoria Press, Victoria.  B.C.  You will not be asked for any  further action or contribution,  but please write immediately.

Mai. 2nd. 3rd. & 4th  MHH Coast News, February 28,1978.  UP THE YEARS WITH  FRANKIE LAINE  Frankie I nine was my very first  pop-music hero. Prior to his  emergence in the late-Forties,  l had always paid more attention  to Ihe songs than the people who  sang them. It was difficult to  tell the various crooners apart  unless you had a scorecard  anyhow. Dick Haymcs, Vic  Damonc, Bub Ebcrlc.they were  virtually interchangeable.  I,tine's approach to stvliny a  song was dynamic and different.  It blasted through the blandness  and was immediately Identifiable. Like Al Jolson before him.  he was palpabl) black-influenced  but while the Main my-suiter  came oul "I the vaudeville*  minstrel-slum tradition, Lainc  oweti much more to jazz, Louis  Armstrong was an admitted  influence and so was Rillie  Holiday.  1 first heard l.aine in tiibsnns  mi the summer of 1447. The son^  was Thai's My Desire, his  initial big hit and it insisted  ihrough thc background of that  bewildering season, 1 didn't  become a fanatic, however, until  ihe following winter, after we  had moved to Vancouver and i  was attending John Oliver High  School. There was a cafe on  Fraser Street thai served as a  hang-out and its juke-box was  heavily loaded in Laine's favour.  Me had just released his first  album and the machine carried  all Ihe sides. The songs were  tried-and-true jazz standards  like Sunny Side of the Street and  Mine Turning Grey Over You,  done forcefully in that unique  manner. Black mid Blue with  Carl Fischer's tinkling, insin-  uating piano was a particular  favourite. Before long. I was  irrevocably hooked.  I aine, at this early juncture,  was taken quite seriously as a  jazz-stylist and his initial releases  were favourably reviewed by the  picky critics at Down Beal and  Metronome, the leading Jazz  journals. But hc had cracked  the commercial market also.  Articles began to appear on him  in numerous magazines. From  these. I learned the salient  facts about the man: his real  lasl name was Lo Vccchio; he  was thirty*six years old and had  been scuffling t" make it since  the Thirties when ho sang at  marathon-dances; he had finally  been discovered performing for  ���limits at an obscure Holly-  -ml    nightclub    called     Billy  Pages from a Life-Log  Peter Trower  1"  Berg's and Mercury Records  had taken a gamble on him;  he had justified their faith by  hitting the jackpot with Desire,  his third release. So the legend  went.  I was not, of course, alone in  my fondness for thc pristine  Laine approach to the bluesy  ballads and driving up-tempo  tunes which formed his repertoire then. There was something  about his voice ��� a certain tough-  gU) quality - that tit precisely,  the temper of those post-war  street-times. There were Frankie  l.aine sound-alike contests promoted by local disc-jockeys  where various duck-tailed young  stalwarts attempted to duplicate  that distinctive style. His songs  were the very anthems of our  collective adolescence.  In the summer of 1948, Laine  or 'Mr. Rhythm' as he was beginning to he known,  came to  Vancouver for the first time.   He  was booked into thc old Palomar  Club for two weeks and Saturday  matinees were arranged to accomodate    his   large    teen-age  following. I can recall that initial  exposure   to   the   inside   of   an  actual night-club with some clarity.   West End Blues was throbbing through the  sound-system  as we entered that low-ceilinged  cavern and thc lowdown warm-  up music assured that Laine was  somewhere in the building.   Wc  grabbed a table close to the stage  and watched the place fill rapidly  as  we  spiked   our  cokes   from  surreptitious mickeys of whiskey.  All thc gangs were there, all the  zooty   young   hoods   and   their  gaudy girls.   The Flea, his tall  ubiquitous  mob in  tow.  banty-  roostered through the door.   Finally the place was packed;  the  atmosphere   electric   with   expectancy.     The  lights  dimmed  except for the overhead  spots,  the house band whaled  into a  jump-version   of   River   Sainte  Marie and Laine himself literally  bounded from thc wings onto the  low stage.  Chunky, hawk-nosed,  bewigged, he was no matinee-  idol but  he was a  dynamo  of  charismatic energy.     Grabbing  the   mike   in   a   stranglehold,  he began belling out the lyrics  in a powerful voice that needed  no echo-chambers. The show was  REMEMBERING ROBERTS CREEK"  New Book.

His partner and music-  director, Cherokee Indian jazz-  pianist. Carl Fischer, spearheaded the back-up band through thc  swinging arrangements. Laine  bobbed and weaved like a boxer,  punching out song after song.  September In thc Rain; Wrap  Your Troubles in Dreams; Baby.  That Ain't Right...he did them  all. And suddenly, a final booming note resonated through the  conquered room and he was  gone, leaving us on the ropes.  Laine's magnetic performance  so impressed my friends and  me. that we returned the following Saturday. We were not  the only repeaters and he rewarded our loyalty by doing a number  of different songs. These two  exposures to thc man in person,  made me an even more-devout  fan. I committed most of his  tunes to memory and they ran  incessantly through my head.  When I hit the logging-camps  in 1949, I carried my mental  jukebox with me and many an  insufferable sidehill vigil was  lightened by Laine's remembered  music. Sometimes I'd forget  myself and break into actual song  only to stop embarrassedly  under the puzzled stare of some  gnarly old hooktendcr.  I didn't see Lainc in person  again until 1951. By this time,  he had moved over to Columbia  Records and his repertoire had  altered quite remarkably. Actually, this change had begun  sometime before while he was  still under contract to Mercury,  At the urging of Mitch Miller  (the "Sing Along" man of later  years) he had abandoned the  purist approach and begun recording such material as Mule  Train and Swamp Girl, over-  arranged epics with choral-  groups and plenty of sound-effects. This was a trend he was  to pursue increasingly over the  years. It would bring him a  much-wider audience and a  good-many million-sellers and  lose him entirely, his credibility  with thc jazz-critics. In all honesty. I can't say I was that concerned. Hc still included many of  the old standards in his act and  recorded more whenever he  got thc chance. It was a well-  known fact that thc large record-  outfits exercised almost total  control over their contractual  artists in thc matter of what  songs were committed to wax.  I preferred Laine on thc old  jazz-tunes but I bore with him  through the novelty stuff simply  because I enjoyed his voice.  Sometime in the early Fifties,  I acquired my first record-player  ���  *  *  ***************  ��  ��  ��  ��  ��  ��  ��  ��  ��  ��  ��  ��  ��  ��  I SCO  PRESENTING  ONE NIGHT ONLY  LADIES  NIGHT  AS    A    SPECIAL    TREAT  SENOR  CARLOS  THtJH-'B-C.  SA,  *  *  and scouring the music stores,  managed to pick up most of his  early '78's. I continued to buy  his new records too although  many of them were disappointing.  During the dozen or so years,  Laine stayed with Columbia,  he recorded a huge body of  material and had a number of  smash hits; Jezebel, Jealousy,  High Noon, I Believe - to name  a few. His single releases  were invariably commercial material of this nature but every  so often on his albums, he attempted lo return to his roots.  In al least one instance - an  album called Rockin' ��� thc results were disasterous and hc  sounded like an overblown  caricature of himself. On a couple  of other albums - Jazz Spectacular and Reunion in Rhythm -  the results were a good deal  happier and hc managed to  recapture much of the old feel.  In 1963. Lainc parted company  with Columbia after several years  without a hit. Hc signed with  Capitol but it was a brief, unhappy marriage that produced  one embarrassingly-pious religious album and some mediocre singles. During this low-ebb  in his career, I saw him again  for the firsl time in over a decade.  The voice was as powerful as  ever, although hc didn't move  around as much. In a mad  moment, 1 decided to go backstage and meet him between  sets. Hc still had a strong  following in Vancouver and there  was a line-up. When my turn  came, I mentioned seeing him  at thc Palomar. all those years  before. Hc looked pleased and  gave mc a firm handshake.  I noticed thai his toupee was  appropriately greying. In accordance with.his gathering years.  After his unlucky alliance with  Capitol. Laine signed with ABC  Paramount. Here hc received  much more sympathetic handling  and had his first hit in years -  I'll Take Care of Your Cares  followed by Making Memories.  It was a welcome return to his  original simpler style after all  the inappropriate material and  over-production. In 1967. while  he was riding this resurgent  tide, I saw Laine in person for  thc final lime. Hc was paunchy  now and sporting a grey goatee  but he was singing up a storm.  Again I went backstage and congratulated him on his new-  success.  Laine stayed with ABC for  several years. He had one final  hit with the Marty Robbins tune  You Gave Me a Mountain and  then the bottom seemed to drop  out of his career again. He was  by now a very wealthy man with  many business interests and  these were requiring an increasing amount of his attention.  He continued recording for  several years but the lightning  seemed to have struck for the  last time. Today he is semi-  retired from the music-business.  But Frankie Laine had a good  run. At his best, he was one of  the greatest entertainers to ever  come down thc pike. 1 still  play his old records with pleasure and 1 wish him well.  i f^B^ Ellingham's    l  tWT     * * Astrology j  commencing    February  Twilight Theatre  The BeachComber *  M^itor Inn ��  ������***���*���**********  Next week's attractions at  the Twilight Theatre include  another Agent 007's adventures.

Sails tearing  off everywhere, ropes Hying, tiller heaving back and forth, waves  coming from everywhere and thc  pride of the B.C.ferry licet  hearing down on me bard astern. Nevertheless, I'll grab  some of lhc diurnal detritus and  lash il together and fashion a  raft somehow from Ihe ominous  deadheads of contemporary  events ami a spare fathom or  so of braided polyprop syntax.  Alter a garbled Introduction  like thai I should make an attempt  here at a hit more simplicity,  so I'll turn, surprisingly enough,  to the world of sports. Muham-  med Ali is no longer the Heavyweight Champion of Ihe world,  having lost to a young man whose  last name reminds one of an  F.nglish company that manufactures black currant jelly. It  seemed like the end of an era  when I got the news, but when  1 read the paper thc following  day. I didn't feel too badly.  Said Muhanimed: "I'll be the  first man to win the heavyweight  championship three times".  He will. too.  Heroes arc where you find  them, and while waiting for  thc champ lo make one more  comeback I ran into another one  in the back pages a few days  before thc fight. He was a lawyer, oddly enough. I say oddly  enough because I find lawyers,  generally, a breed roughly analogous In the present day  Irish seller ��� fractious, bumptious, iw itchy, self-important  bunch of humanity lhal drives  mc to the repeated quotation of  Sandburg's delightful line:  "Why does lhc hearse-horse  snicker when he hauls a lawyer's bones?" This lawyer,  however, seems lo be a setter  of a different colour. His name is  Walter Boytinck, and Ihe reason  he's in Ihe news, and Ihis column,  is because he didn't want lo have  his census taken. Many of us are  worried about having our car  taken, or our pulse, but Walter  Boytinck (who perhaps recognizes Ihe intimately sensual  onomalopoetic possibilities of his  surname and doesn't wisli it  to fall into the icy hands of the  federal government), doesn't  want his census taken. He considers it no one's business but  his own how many bathrooms  his house has, or whether his  2.3 children arc enrolled in  public, or private educational  systems. Mr. Boytinck has  demanded a trial by jury over this  issue and the whole thing has  been postponed until the end of  March. 1 wish him luck. Part of  a free society musl be Ihe freedom to mind one's own business,  Ian Corrance took this picture of one of spring's first harbingers, the humble snowdrop.  Freethinkers Pulpit  by Andy Randall  and it's people like Mr. Boytinck who are postponing the  inevitable day when someone will  suggest tattooing our social  insurance numbers on our  posterior portions. There arc a  lot of people who don't have  anything better to do than keep  files on people, and scribble  nasty notes, and I'd rather nol  encourage Ihese types. Too  many of them seem to gel elected.  Other than discovering new  heroes and keeping track of old  ones, I've also been indulging  in my foreign newspaper habit,  reading thc Sunday Observer,  and especially Anthony Burgess's  column which appears every  week. .Last week he wrote about  meeting Jorge Luis Borges at  some sort of writer's conference  and observed that there were  so many people around that the  two of them resorted to speaking  in Anglo-Saxon. Good prose and  offhand literary anecdotes are  definitely two of my healthier  weaknesses, and I got to indulge  even further in them this week  when I discovered an article by  Graham Greene in the New York  Review of Books. Mr. Greene,  as you may know, has been  writing consistently good works of  prose for years. He is now in his  seventies   and   thc   man   can  string  words  together  so  well  that  in  the  space  of a  short  column he can take you all the  way from laughter to tears and  back again, and drop you gently  at the end, the mind blown and  the brain awed.  I've also been reading your  full-blown,   genuine,   cover-to-  cover books this week, including  one of Brautigan's latest, Sombrero    Fallout,    subtitled    "A  Japanese Novel".  It's the story  of a dull writer somewhere in  California, that exotic place to  the south of us, where, as Woody  Allen put it:   "The only cultural  advantage is being able to make  a right turn at a  red  light".  Sombrero Fallout is certainly not  much more of a cultural advantage, and I've decided now that  Brautigan   finally   got   so   laid  back he fell asleep. The basis of  the story is that discarded slips  of   paper   in   the   wastcbasket  are   writing   their   own   story  and the book reads like that.  Brautigan  maundres  back  and  forth between reality and absurdity so many times that the reader  begins to feel he's always improperly dressed for either event.  Thc thing doddles along on the  back of the two-headed sex-and  violence beast, and never gets  off to shake hands.    Brautigan  has begun to write as if some  one's been tampering with his   drinking water. a song she quotes: "You mustn't . ���   ,...    .

Thc massive,  unbelievably powerful White  Russian girls, typical of thc  Steppes, and the petite cuties  from the region of Leningrad.  Just released, sort of, from an  18 month spell in a notorious  hell-camp for persislent escaping, the Leningrad wenches  seemed the answer to a P.O.W.'s  prayer.

I and others were drawn mostly  to their company. Thc busty  gals were good sports, but I  believe in keeping to my size'.  Sure there was romancing,  and romancing means intimacy?  Yes? So we exchanged a good  deal more than just daft nonsense  in our mutually recognized fractured German tongue.

That is a question  I have often been asked by people  who know I've been there. It is  a loaded question, but I will try to  answer it as briefly and informatively as I can, although the answering will take about four  weekly articles to cover. Even  then a lol will have to be left  out as, in my judgement, it must  escape thc criticism of being  trivia.  I, Andrevski Randallski,  international member of a certain espionage agency, have  worked with, dined with, loved  with, danced wilh, Russians in  Alberta in Ihe '30's. Warm,  simple, good people. Then ��� in  1944 I worked in a sugar-beet  called    Audacity    lo    Believe.  Sheila Cassidy was the lady  English doctor arrested by the  Chilean military junta a couple  of years back when the United  Sates spent over eight million  dollars to establish a fascist  state. Although she was arrested, held without trial, tortured  severely with electrical shocks  and watched men die excruciating deaths at the hands of  the secret police, .this is not  merely a book of bitter political  diatribe. Ms Cassidy emerges  as a strong, loving, exceedingly  compassionate woman, who can  state truthfully at the close of  the   book:       "My   deepening  hat. and a loo liberal supply of  vodka. And, complete with rifle,  I did what comes naturally as a  front line soldier until the vodka  petered out. Then, again I was  ye lone wolf on the loose. Maybe  I was one of their unknown he-  rocs. How should I know? Would  you? Wilh vodka down lhc halch  a la Russki style? I could have  shot my grandmother, and  wouldn't have known it. Please  no medals!  A rapid tlil in my narrative  to where I met a Russian captain  who as official interpreter got  me out of a rough situation.  Guess what? The captain wore  skirls. We gol along tine, especially when she learned I  came from Kanada. Then when  I landed in a Russian base  hospital I met some army nurses  of thc no-nonsense variety. A  week sufficed to pul me on my  feet again. On my way to the  Black Sea coast by freight-  train 1 got off while when the  engineers were refueling the locomotive at a stop between Kiev  and Bialystock. for there had  congretalcd an excited bunch of  big. buxom farm women from a  comminform farm complex  nearby.

There you have it. my credentials for assuming that I  know a wee bit more lhan thc  average Joe about thc Russian  people. There's a bit more to  come, but it will run in among  my comments. Of course I  realise Ihat those of certain  ideologies may pul a big question  mark on some of my reporting,  and some others will think I  am pro-Russian. I am pro  Canadian, with an awareness  of the great world around us,  so I can be called a cosmopolitan.  Back lo the serious business.  So whai do I think of lhc Russians? Well, as a people they arc  no worse, and no heller lhan  our Westerners. Like any other  race of people, their good points,  and bad ones, tote up lo a fairly  even balance.

In  fact wc have two flourishing  examples in this school district,  and some people feel they're  a viable alternative to thc "factory" school - the big consolidated one lo which students are  bused long distances eaeh day.  They have though come a long  way from thc early days when  teachers and pupils often endured great hardships, students  had to drop out of school for the  want of a warm coat or a pair  of shoes. One teacher remembers  staging a one-man strike because thc school board only-  paid him $5.00 in three months  to support his family of five.

Once the ice is  broken, you get a warm, generous, cheerful and emotional  friend.

While Chicken  Little squawks "The sky is  falling!' . the person with "sangfroid" creates a sauce or thvs-  sing which will properly enhance  the delicate flavour of chicken.  The only English equivalents  1 can think of arc the slightly  archaic "aplomb" and the compound "self-possession'.  In our tongue the idioms which  express our most intense sense  of our own reality are often  slang expressions, those parasitic fungus undergrowths of  ihe language which, ironically,  seem healthier than the host.  Aplomb might be more colloquially expressed as "cool"  (keeping it, as opposed to blowing  it), or, more currently, as "being  together", "laid back", even  "mellow". (Hear that humming  sound'.' It's Noah Webster,  spinning in his grave like an  enraged dynamo.) Ultimately,  of course, slang is like junk food;  convenient, but not very nourishing, h satisfies the immediate  hunger for expression, the craving to make experience digestible, but in thc long run you  starve for lack of meaning.  English, fortunately, is a synthetic language. It has no  scruples. Stravinsky once said,  "Mediocre artists borrow. Great  artists steal", and the same  mighl be said of great languages.

It steals from the  dead, lifting phrases and epigrams from defunct Latin with the  alacrity of a sexton pocketing the  pennies from a dead man's  eyes. It even steals from itself,  swiping words from professional  and technical jargon and bringing them into common usage,  often with distorted meanings.  It tests its own faddish slang  against a ruthless standard of  utility to see what elements merit  a more permanent place in the  language.  As an example, since John  Faustmann mentioned the  Dictionary of Historical Slang  in last week's book reviews,  here's an etymological pearl  one of my brothers dropped  into my wine. The words "hip"  and "hip cat", ("hep" and  "hep cat" for those who remember), have been current in  North American slang for a considerable time. They originated,  as most people know, in the black  subculture, but the actual derivation is obscure to say thc least.  Now the punchline: the author  of my brother's human geography text observed that western  Africa was thc primary geographical source of slaves and that  in certain West African dialects  the word "hipicat" was used to  describe one who was particularly aware, perceptive, and sensitive. That little detour was a  lot shorter than reading Alex  Haley's Roots, wasn't it?  Well, driving taxi is a Magical  Mystery Detour at the best of  times. Physically, you go from  Point A to Point B. The departures and destinations are as  clearly defined as birth and  death, duly recorded on your  tripshect. but, like life, it's what  happens in between that makes it  interesting and. more often  than not. psychologically exhausting. You have to communicate, politely at the bare minimum, with a variation of human  types that runs from one extremity of thc spectrum to thc other,  and to make adjustments as  quickly as people can gct in and  out of the car. Inevitably, the  fine tuning sometimes gets a  little sloppy. In the course of a  single shift you can make a  friend for life, fall in love, and  get punched out of your socks.  Obviously, a generous helping  of aplomb, "sang-froid", or cool  is essential if you're going to  retain your sanity. while thc  meter ticks over like an anarchist  bomb.  I was going to demonstrate  thc point of this week's mean-  dcrings with a few tall tales  illustrative of aplomb, or the lack  of it, in the face of taxi-madness, but I'll save the balance  for next week. This one I can't  resist, since the joke's on me.  Wildlif  R.Allen  corner  by Ian Corrance  Killer Whales  A sight that never fails to excite a person lucky enough to  see it, is a pod of whales feeding.  Gibsons got their yearly show  last Wednesday when about ten  of them came along the Sound  and out through the Gap. Not  being an early riser when necessity docs not demand it, I was  up in time to see the last one  rounding Gower Point and heading for open water, closely fol-  losed by our intrepid receptionist  Manuane in one of Smitty's  rental boats. By the time she  gout out thc Gap the whales  had started travelling so she  didn't get any pictures, but I'm  sure it was more fun than wading  through a bunch of ledger cards.  One elderly lady remarked that  if thc whales went out the Gap  instead of coming in, then wc  One of the things that can catch  a driver with his aplomb down  is the radio. For the most part,  it broadcasts simple, mundane  directions, so you gct into the  habit of listening with one ear  while your mind is miles away,  I was doing just that last week,  deadheading empty back from  Port Mellon. There were patches  of mist on the road and sun on  the mountains and thc sea. I  was daydreaming about fjords  and long-ships full of Vikings,  battles in the mist, and doomed  gods when a feminine voice on  the radio suddenly asked, "Two-  four? Do you know where Valhalla is?" When 1 regained  control of the car, I pulled over  and thought about that one for  a while. Valhalla, the great  Beer-Parlour-in-the-Sky, where  thc spirits of Viking heroes, chosen for their valiant and violent  deaths, lounge around quaffing  huge horns of mead conveyed by  buxom Valkyries...(Something  like thy Beachcomber or the  Cedars on a Friday night).  My aplomb was somewhere  else that day. I confessed my  ignorance and asked directions.  What I should have said was,  "Sure. You cross the Rainbow  Bridge, then you take thc first  exit to Asgard, then past the  Pole Star, and..."Well, you get  the idea. Next week, the dreaded  Cab-Cafard! Over and Out.

When this was mentioned to a certain unnamed  Indian gentleman in Sechelt  (Terry Joe), he laughed for  five minutes. What the heck,  can't us guys have our traditions  as well? If it's rotten weather  for the next while, it's all your  fault Terry; the whales did their  best.  About ten years ago I was on  the eastern side of Gambier  Island sneaking up on a mixed  flock of scoters and goldeneyes.  It was on the part of the island  that has steep rocks right at the  shoreline; so that, plus the fact  that the birds had spotted me  a couple of times, made thc going  pretty slow. I guess all told  it took me about an hour to get  within about twenty feet of them.  During about the last half  hour I had also been keeping  watch on three killer whales;  a bull, a cow, and a calf, quite  a bit out towards the bird sanctuary rocks.  The whales were taking their  time, sounding regularly and enjoying themselves in the sunshine  as they made their way toward  Bowen Island. When I was  finally getting close to the ducks  something a bit unusual registered on me but I couldn't quite  put my finger on it.  At last I rounded the final  turn and the ducks were sitting  directly below me. It was a nice  tranquil scene which I would be  able to enjoy once I caught my  breath. Suddenly a huge dark  shape showed below the flock,  and a wide gaped mouth appeared, swallowing one of the  ducks and then fell back leaving  the water boiling and thc luckier  birds scattering in all directions.  It took me a few moments of  amazement before I figured  out how this expert bit of hunting  had been accomplished. Thc  bull whale had sounded after  sighting in on the ducks; meanwhile thc cow and the calf had  started surfacing more often,  so that it would look like there  were still three whales (this  was what I had half picked up  on when I had felt that there  was something different happening).  1 guess this little story is just  to show another example of the  case of communication and great  intelligence of these mammals.  Whitaker  The Japanese fishermen have  just recently killed thousands  of dolphins because they were  eating fish, and what is worse  they towed them out and dumped  them in deep water to rot, so  that the usage of their meat  would not affect the economy of  nearby dolphin fishermen. Just  great!!!  Hummingbirds  On January the 6th or 7th  Maryanne West saw a couple of  hummingbirds in her yard. In  past years she had seen them as  far into the winter as November,!  but this was the first time she  could remember them having  wintered here. It does seem a  bit unusual. The reason for it  may be that people arc feeding  them too long and thc birds  become dependent on the hanging feeders. It's a pity, because  I can't see how a diet of sugar  and water, without any supplement from blossoms, could be  enough to keep them healthy  through the winter.  Herons  If anyone knows where there  are any heron nests, could you  either give me or John Hind  Smith a call. My number is  886-7818 or 886-2622. and John's  is 886-9949. A member of the  Wildlife Branch was in touch  with John last week. He wants  to do a survey of the nesting  sites.  In the two heronries that I  know of. the birds have pretty  well deserted them over the past  few years in search of less  built-up surroundings, and I'm  not sure where they have moved  to. John's been phoning around  quite a bit for information as  the Wildlife Representative may  be up this week if we have  anything definite to show him,  so any help would really be appreciated.

Jr. Soccer    Wanderers  The Wanderers Junior met  the undefeated McSwceney Border Brokers on thc top field at  Elphinstone High School, Sunday  February 26. The weather was  beautiful and the Wanderers  Juniors pulled off a very sound  win. The fine defensive playing  of Blair Head, Gary Knowles  and Colin Risebrough and  the consistent playing of both  Mark Jacobsen and Bobbie  Nicholas helped to bring about  this win. Not to be forgotten  is our goalie, Tom Sleep, who  pulled off some beautiful saves in  goal.  The final score was 4-1, the  four goals being made by, Robbie Jonas, two, with one assist  from Corrie Mottishaw, and Ken  Kevasnycia, two, with one assist coming from Robbie Jonas.  A very enthusiastic cheering  section was present helping to  cheer the Wanderers along on  this very important win.  by Karl Johnston  Presently on the coast there  is only one 4-H club.

Elphinstone  Wanderers played a tight checking game against Vancouver's  Aga Khan. The local squad  put on a good show as they  held thc play throughout thc  game. A defensive mixup gave  thc Aga Khan's thc only goal  of the game.  Wanderers, presently on a  three-game losing streak, played  a well disciplined style of soccer  that frustrated the give and go  play of the Aga Khan team.  Forwards Corky Bland, Frank  Hoehne and Graham Chapman  had' many shots on goal and  fullback Duncan "' Campbell  blasted a free kick from 30 yards  that was tipped over thc bar by  the goal keeper at the last possible moment.  Frank Hoehne, playing in  his third game with the Wanderers, gave an outstanding  effort in the center forward  spot. Duncan Campbell and Art  Dew also played especially well.  Kerry Eldrid ended up playing  five different positions during  the game and said he enjoyed  every one of them.  In an attempt to shake the  team out of the doldrums, Terry  Duffy and Jan de Reus have  traded positions. Jan is now  coach and Terry the team manager. De Reus was pleased with  the Wanderers' play except for  the lack of goals. Hc praised  the players for their efforts as  a team.  Wanderers next action will  be on Sunday. March 5 at Langdale Field at 2:00 p.m. See  you there.  Coast  strokers  by Dennis Gray  Motocross in the Pacific  Northwest entered the 20th  century last Saturday night at  the King Dome in Seattle, by  adding one important ingredient: comfort. Over thirty-  thousand people sat in comfort  indoors to watch a young but  well-experienced supercross  star from California take first  place. Marty Tripps. who changes  bike brands with almost each  race, and is well known for his  unique stand up riding style,  had much of the crown standing  up also.  There was no dust, no rain,  no mud. noise was within bearable limits, and everyone could  see all thc track. Even if one  had to leave his scat, the action  was brought to you with closed  circuit T.V. sets in thc halls and  washrooms. The action was  sorted out for the non-enthusiast  by a good announcer. Complete  restaurant meals could be purchased or refreshments could  be bought at vour seats from  vendors. At $8.00 - 10.00 per  seat, the price was right for  live entertainment.  In fact, constructing and dismantling the huge track could be  very entertaining. Also, the floor  is first cpvered with plastic,  then plywood. Then hills, jumps,  and berms arc built of timbers  and plywood. The whole track  is then covered with thousands  of yards of soil. The makeup  of this soil is closely mixed and  controlled to give just the right  track conditions.  Perhaps one day supercross  will come to Vancouver. Till  then keep stroking.

I have  read more than one speculation  by observers that he might  be a possibility for leadership  replacement. You can be sure  that hc has already shown one  characteristic of recent leadership. On a recent nation-wide  telecast, he remarked with  vehemence that "Levesque can  say any "bleep-bleep" thing  he wants and thc English Press  will print it."

Pat Ranson (nee Gust)  MY THINKING PLACE  Whenever anything goes  wrong or I can't quite figure  a thing out, I like to get away and  to try to come to my senses, so  to speak. To be able to do this.  I have to gct away from all distractions.  To go to my thinking place,  1 have to go down Charman's  Road. After going a fair distance.  1 come to two roads, and I take the  one on the right. I follow this  road right to thc end, and there  it is, my thinking place.    It is  It's no different today. Coast News Classified ads are still the place to turn to when you  wish to buy or sell campers, tents, vacation  equipment or anything else.  in a clearing, and quite high up,  on a sort of cliff. From here,  1 can see over the Bay and the  Strait of Georgia. Just seeing this  sight relieves most of my tensions. The only sounds 1 hear are  thc singing of birds and the whisper of wind through the trees.  To mc, this is the most peaceful  place on earth.  There's a rock near the edge of  the cliff, on which 1 sit and gaze  across thc water.  If 1 don't need to think things  out, I sometimes go to this  spot just to enjoy the scenery.  I haven't yet come back from my  thinking place without feeling  relieved or inspired, whatever  the cause of my going there may  have been. My thinking place  truly serves its purpose well.  Scouting  Dear Sir:  I am writing this letter to  everyone presently or formerly  involved in thc Scouting Movement. Thc Sechelt Group Committee has il'-problem, which is(L  lack of piwcnt support, There are  59 boys enrolled in Beavers,  Cubs, Scouts and Ventures in  Sechelt. and at our Parent  Committee meetings we have  5 or 6 faithful and tiring parents  turning out. We have had to  cancel two and perhaps three  of our Money Raising Projects  because not one parent would  offer to give a few hours of time.  Thc money raised all goes to  Scouting Activities. Our Ventures rccenllv went to a Winter  craft supplies and food all cost  over .100 young people attended.  The boys and leaders returned  enthusiastic and excited about  thc possibilities for further such  activities. However, it costs  money! The District Scouts and  Ventures are camping at Mix-  all Lake early in March. Supplies  such as Medical Kits, tents.  Craft supplies and food all cost  money! The Cubs are planning  a weekend camp. The Beavers  are planning to attend a District Bcaverec. This costs money!  Where arc the parents of our  59 boys? Wc need help! Can  anyone formerly in Scouting offer  us help or suggestions? We meet  at St.Hilda's Hall the firsl Monday of each month at 8:00 p.m.  Please, if you feci Scouting is  important for your son and the  community, support the boys!!  Roberta Foxall  Film Board  Request  Dear Sir:  I am writing you with the hope  that you will publish a request  forme.  I am in the process of making  a film for the National Film  Board. It is an education documentary on the history of logging in B.C. I am concerned with  thc period 1850 - 1950 and am  trying to find old photos, drawings, newspaper illustrations  and archival film footage. While  much is available from various  archives and collections, most  material seems to be concerned  with machinery and many of the  photos are posed and static.  The focus of this film is the  men who worked in the woods,  Iheir customs and lifestyles on  thejobandoff.  What I need are pictures  that are relaxed and casual,  candid. Pictures that show the  men in the bunkhouses playing  cards, drinking, and having fun.  Pictures of the men in town.  I would like to appeal to your  readers to get in contact with  me if they have any material  that could be useful. While  only a token payment can be  made, wc will acknowledge their  help in thc credits of the film  and will restore deteriorating  photos as best we can. Any  material uses, will, of course, be  handled very carefully and protected by duplication and the ori-'  ginal picture will be returned  promptly.  If you will publish this request.  1 would be most grateful.   1 can  be contacted at:  Mr. Svend-Erik Erikscn,  The   National   Film   Board   of  Canada.  801-736 Granville Street.  Vancouver.

Annual  fees are $15.00 for individuals  and $20.00 for families. Your  membership gives you the following: free admission throughout the year, members only  film nights, previews of new  animals and exhibits, free subscription to thc Aquarium Publications,   10%  discount on  all  purchases at the Clam Shell  Gift Shop and the opportunity  to join local collecting trips, and  research expeditions. Our family goes at least four times a  year. This past weekend we enjoyed the special exhibit on diving  equipment along with thc usual  live performances by thc Killer  Whales and Ihe Belugas.  Another "best" cultural  investment that you might be  interested in is thc folk dancing  Hydro Again  Editor:  The following is a condensation of a letter written to Mr.  Bayne Vance. Pest Control  Branch. Surrey. B.C. It gives  objections to B.C.Hydro's  application to carry out airborne  spraying operations of their  power line right-of-way between  Earl Cove and Madeira Park.  Fisheries:  All lakes and most stream and  creek mouths in this area nurture  valuable spawning beds. As all  these creeks descend across  thc right-of-way they would be  infected if spraying were carried out. No herbicides should  enter these-spawning beds!  Wildlife:  As this area's wildlife is already depleted for other reasons,  it follows that the situation should  not be further aggravated. Do  not poison drinking water and  feed!  Forestry:  Spraying kills seedlings and  can even damage or deform  older  trees.     Manual   clearing  could preserve the land tor  productive uses, such as Christinas tree farming, lodge pole  griming, etc. Do nol kill this  land with herbicides!  Agriculture:  Many people along the right-  of-way have small orchards and  depend upon vegetables from  kitchen-gardens. Spraying  which went awry could ruin  them. Wc have the right to  enjoy untainted frails and vegetables. Don't spray near our  homes!  Health and Welfare:  Dozens of permanent and thou-  sandsjof summer residents drink  these waters. To protect thc  purity of the waler. health  authorities have imposed stringent waste and sewage disposal  controls. Let these same authorities be as demanding with  Hydro! We should not be  FORCED to Ingest ANY amount  of herbicide!  In conclusion, sir, I request  your hoard refuse Hydro's application!

President of the United Fishermen and Allied  Workers Union and a member of an East Indian  Association were just two of the  many  who  gathered to pay tribute to John Daly in Madeira  Park last Saturday.  Peilder Ratepayers report    pender School Water  Water for the new Pender Harbour Secondary School should  be provided by a private, small-scale system owned and installed by the School District, the APC decided.  The issue came up after reading of a letter from school District Secretary-Treasurer Roy Mills explaining that Regional  District Works Superintendent Gordon Dixon had told him  ' 'there was every likelihood of our water problems being solved  by the running of a trunk line from Lyon Lake down by the  school into Garden Bay".  Mills said, "that's the basis I have been going on" as far  as the school water question goes.  In view of the fact that the Dixon scheme turned out to be  something of a "pipe dream" the APC fell it was advisable  that the school board fall back on Ihe more modest plan which  would draw water from the small creek adjacent to the secondary school. This system would require an earthen reservoir  on crown land above the powerline and 6-inch pipe running  1,500' to the high school via easements and delivering water  at a rate suitable for fire protection as outlined several months  ago in this paper by Bill Scoular. The APC felt that since  the school district would be the system's sole user it was only  logical it be the system's owner. They added however that the  Regional District should contribute financially to the project  if required, just as they have contributed to thc swimming pool,  library and other elcmenw of the new school. Estimated  cost of the system would be $50,000.  The Pender Harbour Commun  ity Plan will go ahead, the Area  "A" APC decided at its February  15th meeting.  Since Director Joe Harrison  served notice that he would  review the Plan's progress and  appoint a new committee at  the last meeting of the Community Plan Committee in 1977  the APC has been deliberating  on the role of the Plan and seeking answers from government on  its possible effects on the community.  One of thc concerns was a  statement by ihe Regional Planning Office that the Community  Plan would give the Regional  District all the powers to oversee and approve subdivisions  that are now held by thc Department of Highways. This caused  concern among some APC  members that substantial staff  increases would be required  -at the Regional District, an added  tax burden to all ratepayers  mainly for the benefit of real  estate developers.  Robyn Addison, Regional  District Planner, has now given  assurances that the transfer  of subdivision powers would not  occur automatically, however,  and could only be done if the  District made a strong request  for it.  Joe Harrison said hc would  be looking for people with a  strong interest in community  planning and the time to pursue  it in appointing the new committee, in an attempt to avoid  the absenteeism problem that  hampered the last committee.  He said the planning area would  also be expanded to include  Middlepoint, and committee  members would be sought in  those areas. He praised the  work of previous members of  the Community Plan Committee  and thanked them on behalf of  the community. Hc said that he  ^���j���    - i  Too Late to  Classify  FOR  SALE  COIN-OP  CLEANERS  886-2231  asked previous members to con  tact him if they wished to continue working on thc plan at the  time the committee last met and  those who had done so would be  given positions on the new  committee.  Paving Dump Road Costly  Paving the road to the garbage dump has been one of the  themes of the last three APC  meetings but enthusiasm was  markedly dampened last time  when it was discovered the cost  would be $57,000. The Regional  District would of course never  consider undertaking thc job at  this cost and the only option  left to Area "A" is to finance  it over ten years with a specified area tax of .92 mills. APC  members felt this would be unjustified and resolved to call upon  the Regional District to make  improvements to the present  gravel surface.  Park and Public Access for Green  Bay  Visitors to Green Bay on Nelson  Island will have the privilege of  tying to a semi-public wharf  and walking ashore on a public  road if a current land use contract application goes through.  A group holding the large block  of land on the west side of the  bay has applied for permission  to build thirteen dwellings and  thc APC recommended public-  access and a park area around  the bay's waterfall as conditions  of the contract.  Sakinaw Parking Problems  Tackled  Sixty parking spaces for Sakinaw Lake residents will be  guaranteed under another land  use contract being negotiated  with landowner Hugh Carter.  Carter has been applying for  relief from the current country  zoning in the area for some time  on thc basis that landlocked  lake residents need a commercial  carpark and marina. Although  reluctant to allow commercial  development on the lake the  APC recognized that Carter  cannot afford to maintain his  valuable holding solely as a  carpark and agreed to permit  light commercial development  such as a cafe, store and camping  facilities providing they are  kept well clear of salmon creeks.  Thc APC also instructed thc  Regional District to look into  the possibility of developing  crown land in the area for parking and latest reports are thai  this is proceeding.  y��  CATERPILLAR  NEW & USED  tVGenuine Caterpillar parts  ���A-TractorsD4DtoD9H  ���,v Loaders 910 to 992  ���it Excavators & Graders  A Hyster parts & Winches  Your Resident Representative  ERNIE UNGER  Res.886-9758, off: 530-1145  at NORTHLAND we save you  Time & Money  12 x 60 Mobile Home, semi-  furnished on Landscaped lot on  North Road.

Nutrition   Power sq��"��d����  Prmluml In tin- Nutrition  Divisor) of B.C. Ministry of  Health.  (Jui'Mjim: Cotl you tell me how  processed cheese and cheese  spreads are made? Does their  nutrient content differ from  cheddni cheese'.'  Answeri To make processed  cheese and cheese spreads,  natural cheeses are ground and  mixed with the aid of heat and an  emulsifying agent, Acid, cream,  water, salt, colouring and spices  tan be attded. A processed  cheese spread contains more  moisture and less fat so that it  will spread easily al room temperature.  Ihe basic nutrients arc not  destroyed in th process but  there are less nutrients per  ounce because the mixture has  been diluted with extra moisture  and extra carbohydrate has been  added. For example, 100 gm.  of cheddar cheese contain 25 .urn.  of protein while the same amount  of processed cheese contains 2.1  gm. of protein and a cheese  spread Ifi gm. of protein.  Question: I have read (hat we  should reduce the fat content of  our diets as a measure in thc  prevention against heart disease.  Do fats such as butter, margarine and salad oils contribute  any nutrients to my diet?  Answer: Although spreads such  as butter and margarine and  salad dressings are not generally  the major source of fat in the  diet, thev contribute several  essential nutrients. Butter and  margarine contain vitamin A.  while oils and some soft margarines contain vitamin \: and the  essential polyunsaturated fatty  iieid. linoleic acid, hats also help  the body to absorb the fat-  soluble vitamins A. D. E and K.  Question: My teenage daughter  is overweight and has been prescribed a reducing diet which  slivsses ihe use of skim milk.  However, she dislikes ihe taste  of it and even complains about  its appearance. What can I do?  Answer: Try serving the milk  in opaque glasses so that the  appearance will he less noticeable, Vou may have to deviate  from ihe diet slightly at first  b\ using }"'������ milk and then  gradually, over the days and  weeks, replace this milk by mixing ii with the skim milk. Hope-  lully by gradually decreasing the  proportion of 2% milk and in-  reasing the proportion of skim  milk, vour daughter will be able  to follow her rilei and drink only  skini milk.  The Sunshine Coast Power  Squadron monthly meeting was  held al the home of Ha/el and  Don Madden on Friday, February  17.1978.  The highlight of the evening  was the presentation of colour  slides by Jim Spilsbury - well-  known as an electronic expert  (Spilsbury Communication Systems, a division of Spilsbury  and Tindall Ltd.) as well as a  flyer of note. Wc have him to  thank for the conception of  Queen Charlotte Airlines which  lie later sold out to Pacific Western.  Jim, an accomplished speaker,  kept the attention and interest  of all. His ever ready camera  caught many interesting and unusual happenings, on water and  land. What photographic skills!  Many have Jim - skipper of  "Blythe Spirit" - to thank for  rescue at sea. tire fighting,  imparting his knowledge of  coastal history and knowing  practically every nook and  reef along the coast as well  as helpful tips to those who have  cruises or are going  to cruise  the waters of the West Coast  off Vancouver. Thank you for  an exhilarating evening.  Two recent graduates of the  accelerated Boating Course,  Bill Williamson from Pender  Harbour and Harvey Engeiken  of Sechelt, were pledged by  Squadron Commander Chuck  Williams and given a warm  welcome.

Other pictures demonstrated  a remarkable fact about modern  England which, though highly  industrialized for centuries,  still supports numerous family  enterprises operating successfully in a small way: among  these, an old, restored flour mill  now producing stone-ground  Hour; a smithy run by an 80-  year-old blacksmith; a wood  turner (capable of turning a  hardwood sherry glass half an  inch high); and a flourishing,  family operated sawmill, converting gigantic oak logs into  lumber. On a sloping beach,  wooden fishing craft by the dozens ("primitive", according to  Sam) are launched with greased  planks, by hand, and winched up  on shore again, by hand, each  boat providing the owner's  living. All of these enterprises  were making a go of it: a durable  indication that, whatever happens, there will always be an  England.  X*<  take it to  U&LViti  A0T# ���#0Y  BBB-7133  We handle I.C.B.C. claims.  farm income assurance programs  have been destroyed by the stroke  ofa minister's pen.  In thc construction industry,  unemployment is on thc order  of 34 per cent. A publicity  campaign has been launched by  the labor movement to call for  action to create jobs. Unemployment among young people has  reached 40 per cent. The prospects for students finding jobs on  graduation arc dim. Even  finding a summer job to pay the  higher tuition fees imposed by  the present government is tough.  The most recent figures show  that 8.5 per cent of thc B.C.  work force is unemployed. That's  almost one person in ten.  Prospects for the future arc  not bright either. The Conference Board of Canada predicts  that the unemployment level  will stay al around eight per  cent throughout this year. These  figures do not include those  who have given up looking for  work because they know there is  no hope of finding a job in their  community. Thc statistics also  do not include status Indians  among whom unemployment is  even more severe.  As a result, many workers are  moving, to Alberta or Saskatchewan, something that's happening with alarming frequency  these days.  Part of the reason for this unhappy situation is the current  state of international trade and  thc collapse of thc U.S.war  economy. However, a significant share of thc blame lies with  the ill-considered actions of the  present Social Credit government in Victoria.  This government of millionaires has been so busy juggling  lhc books to create the impression  of a surplus that it has failed  to take any consideration of the  impact of its actions on the  economy as a whole. The outrageous increases in income tax.  sales tax, ferry rates, auto insurance rates and electricity  rates have left less money to  circulate in the community;  less money around to support  local businesses and create jobs.  Indiscriminate tax and rate increases imposed by the Social  Credit government arc costing  thc average B.C. family an extra  $110.00 each month.  As a result thc bankruptcy  rate in 1177 was up 52 per cent  over the previous year with 595  businesses closing their doors  forever.  We are in what can only be  described as a tax-fed depression. After promising to freeze  taxes, the Socreds have increased  almost every tax and user fee  under their jurisdiction.  In short, the present government has been filling Ihe treasury al your expense, and thc  results are clear for everyone  lo see: unacccptably high unemployment, and a dramatic  increase in the rate of business  failures.  It's not just lhc mid-winter  blues we're experiencing.   Come cry with me  FOR PURR ��� feet \  auto body       |  repairs...     &  Dear Ann:  When one has a lover's quarrel  and hasty remarks fly about,  is this a sign of what a person  really feels - insults and all -  or is it just a blowing off of  steam? Can one go on lovingly  and forget?  Torn  Dear Torn:  The first lover's quarrel  seems inevitable in most close  relationships, we try to be perfect for thc loved one. believing  we have faults and hoping they  will not become apparent. A  word or deed hits a button and  triggers a torrent of repressed  feelings and judgements. They  may just be words popping out  but 1 believe they were repressed  opinions - small but eventually  adding up to one large outrage  and hence an outburst - so usually  the air is cleared. The real  person can relax and is accepted.  An ease comes into the relationship.  If harsh or unfair words are  said there may be no kissing and  making up - too much criticism  results in injury to our self-  image ��� too much discomfort  makes us want to avoid a critical  person - so a lover's quarrel  can go either way. Don't criticize if you can control it. Emphasize thc good points of each and  notice how much more you enjoy  each other's company. A warm  good-natured person draws  others to them. The critical  and verbally discontent can  repel  and  drive  others  away.  Dear Ann:  My boyfriend didn't bring me  a Valentine present. He came  over and made love to mc, and  said that Valentines and presents  are only for those who can't  get together. I'm wondering if  he's just cheap.  Unconvinced  Dear Unconvinced:  Your friend enjoyed his Valentine anyway, so who can  say.  Men have trouble remembering  to buy gifts and just getting  the dates in their minds: work,  and commuting - sometimes  special days arrive unnoticed.  He remembered in time to sec  you, at least. Little things  matter more to women than men  know. I think it's nice to at  least buy a rose or a token of  esteem. Let's hope he agrees.  Dear Ann:  1 seem to end up with men  thai there's no lasting rapport  with, so I'm always starting over.  An affair for a year or two, nothing permanent. I'm frittering  away my young years on men  that have no future in my life.  What to do?  Treading Water  Dear Treading:  Join thc human race, wc all  place our affections in the wrong  place at times. It's like love  looking for a place lo land. Pursue the things you love, collecting  stamps and all their meetings  and conventions, or theatre,  acting, dancing, or art. Do what  you love to do and you'll meet  people that you can love a lifetime. A nature lover isn't going  to find a fishing companion in  an opera enthusiast, as a rule,  some people can and do have  this span of loves and interest,  the more things you love the  hapnier you arc.
