Alderman Trainor, Marina and Harbours Committee Chairman,  however, had already been studying the problem and he gave  notice of motion that would authorize some corrective action.  Wilson, appearing before Council at its August 21 meeting,  complained about his boat being moved from its moorage at a  public float to make way for a CBC barge and then being  improperly and carelessly tied to the barge at some hazard to his  boat.  Mayor Blain felt all boats were moored at the owners' risk and  he argued at some length with Wilson about whether there were  signs on the floats concerning this risk and compared the floats  moorage to a public parking lot. "But someone doesn't move  your car in a parking lot to make room for his own," said Wilson.

It was moved by Director  Charles Lee that a letter be sent  to Shorncliffe Holdings asking  why the cost of the land for the  joint use facility had been  doubled. The motion was  passed unanimously by board  members.  The meeting had been  scheduled for the final  adoption of the Community  Plan but new information and  differences of opinion brought  out at a meeting the previous  evening, brought a rescinding  of third reading of the  Community Plan.  The first public hearing for  the Community Plan was held  in   October,   1978.   Another  meeting.  Except for minor housekeeping changes, Council had  thought the Plan was ready to  send to Victoria for  registration.  At the August 22 Planning  Committee meeting, Chairman  Joyce Kolibas had read  through seven pages of the 19  page Community Plan when  Hayden Killam asked whether  he could make comments as she  read or wait until she was  45 acres of Cliff Gilker Park  Golf Club seeks part of park  A proposal wus put before  lhc Sunshine Const Regional  Hoard last week lhal 45 acres of  Cliff Gilker Park in Roberts  ii eek bc made available to the  Sunshine Coast Golf and  (.'ouiiin Club for the  completion of an IS - hole golf  ���.���nee.  Presenting the proposal was  Alex Warner of Sechelt,  Chairman of the Long  Planning Committee for the  golf club. In presenting the golf  club's request, Warner gave a  brief history of the golf club.  He pointed out that  ..ruani-'ation for the nresent  nine - hole golf course had  started 12 years ago and that  the club had just passed its  tenth anniversary of active use.  According to the Long  Planning Committee Chairman, the green fees charged for  public use of the facilities were  the lowest in the province.  ���  I reae urer James Budd of.the Sunshine Coast Golf Club presents the case for turning  over 4B acres of Cliff Gilker Park to the golf course.  Warner said that between  January 1 and July 31 8,000  rounds of golf had been played  on the present course by  members of the public. The  course employssixandonehalf  employees during the summer  months.  The 45 acres sought by the  golf course are in a strip from  the end of the HI fairway along  the top edge of the park parallel  with Highway 101. The strip  would extend the full width of  the park to its eastern  extremity across the B & K  logging road from the golf  course. The present nine holes  occupies 49'/i acres.  Regional Director Harry  Almond, the director for  Roberts Creek, while praising  the golf club for the quality of  the facility they had provided  for the Sunshine Coast and the  work done by the club  members pointed out that Cliff  Gilker Park was a designated  wilderness park.  Regional Planner Bill  Lindsay pointed out that at the  Planning Committee meeting  which had preceded the regular  meeting the Regional Board  had decided to undertake an  over-all park planning  function. It was agreed that the  golf club's request would be  considered in conjunction with  the park planning and in  consultation with the Roberts  Creek Lions Club who have  undertaken responsibility for  the maintenance of the park.  open .  committee at the clause  regarding set-back from the  boulevard property line "say 25  feet". Members of the  committee said that the clause  was "too restrictive".  "Hayden Killam, Henry  Hall and Van Egmont, I feel  you completely took over some  meetings in your endeavours to  get what you wanted in the  plan," Chairman Kolibas said  after some discussion.  "At those meetings I said this  is a plan for the future, not  what rests today. This plan has  made very little attempt for the  future. This plan is about  protecting the people coming  into our Village from buying  property and having either a  store or commercial building  put beside him. Doug Roy  (former Village Planner) was  harping back to some idea that  Please turn lo page nine  ��I  SeePage 11.  for  Hospitality Directory  such as more dogs running  loose than he had ever seen  there'before. "There doesn't  seem to be any control there at  all," Wilson said. *  Mayor Blain, by the way,  had a sample of the dogs-on-  the loose problem at first hand  on the evening of the official  opening of Sea Cavalcade when  three came tumbling in a  snarling whirl around him and  the princesses as they began  their procession down the ramp  to the stage.  Alderman Trainor interjected his request to read the  motion that he would have  ordinarily read . later in the  meeting at the time of  committee reports. His motion,  passed by Council, proposed  that until such a time as the new  Fisheries Act applies certain  floats should be designated for  use by commercial vessels only,  and others for pleasure craft  and regulations should be  drawn lip by Council to make  the best use possible of the '  moorage facilities. Copies of  these regulations will be sent to  the several federal agencies that  at the present pro.ide and  maintain the dock ana floats.  "There have been problems  of maintenance, administration and parking," said  Alderman Trainor later,  "because at present the Coast  Guard, Fisheries, and the  Department of Public Works  all have something to do with  the facility, and  the public  the facility, and the Village as  the lessee finds itself in the  middle when the boating public  complains. And at present the  Village has no authority to  resolve problems." Trainor  added, "The new act is  expected to give some authority  to local management of the  docks and floats, such as, for  instance, providing for  swearing in a wharfinger as a  peach officer."  Council received copies of  letters between G.E. Brooks of  the Coast Guard's Regional  Harbours and Wharves  Division,   and   All   Sports  structure of the public wharf  and the parking floor in the All  Sports Marine Building. On  July 6 Brooks had given  approval for the construction  of a treated pile and timber  structure which was to meet  Department of Public  standards. On August 17  Brooks wrote, "The structure  was examined on Wednesday,  August 17 by E.A. Appleton, P.  Eng. Department of Public  Works and was found not to  conform with department  standards." The letter limited  the use of the ramp to  automobiles.  The Gibsons Community  Plan Committee will now be  able to call on the planner-  consultant to attend some of  their meetings. Council  accepted Alderman Goddard's  motion that Council grant this  and seek available provincial  grants to pay for this extra  time. New names on the  Community Plan Committee  are Bill Wright, Dick Scott.  Terry Karkabe and Verna Sim.  The Works Superintendent  reported the chlorination  system complete except for the  electrical hook-up. The lane  extension and the sewer line on  Glassford Lane are about 75%  complete. The extension ol the  high-pressure water line to Ihe  new shops and ollice building  at the Cedars is well underway.  Because of the UBCM  conference in early September,  thc next Council meeting has  been re-scheduled to Tuesday,  August 28.  Lee reopens  Pub application  The issue of whether or not there is to bc a neighbourhood pub  in Davis Bay was re-opened at the Regional Board meeting held  on August 23 by director for Area C Charles Lee. At a previous  meeting longtime Davis Bay resident C.E. Scales had made a  presentation in opposition to the pub, presenting a petition signed  by the people of the area.  Lee'^objection to the actions of the Regional Board in throwing  out the pub application was a procedural one. "We should have  been aware of the procedure in this application," said Lee.  ''Technically the petition presented to us was not valid."  The Regional Director demanded to know what the Regional  Board would have done if the applicant, Paul Flett, hadappcared  at a Board meeting with ISO signatures demanding a pub.  C.E. Scales expressed disappointment at the actions of the area  director in re-opening the issue.  Grid suggestion  Almond objects  Director Harry Almond of  Roberts Creek objected  strongly to the mention by the  Department of Highways of a  three-route grid system of  highways in connection with  the Regional Plan.  Almond pointed out that it  had been stressed to the  Department of Highways time  and time again that the regional  district was not interested in  making Gower Point Road am:  Beach Avenue link up ai some  future date into a four-lane  highway.  "The charm of the place i- in  its curving dead-end roads yet  thc Department insists on  regarding the coast roads as a  future highway."  "We keep telling them that  all wc want is a by-pa ��� - higher  up," said the Area A director.  Arena vote November  The voters in Areas B and C  of the Regional District and the  residents of Sechelt Village will  be asked to vote on the  question of support for the  Sechelt Arena at the time of the  regular  municipal  voting  in  November.  It was moved at the Regional  Board meeting held on August  23 that an ad hue committee be  struck to discuss the structure  of the Arena in the event of a  positive vole in the November  referendum.

It involved the spraying of  the blackberry bushes along the side of the  CNR rail tracks as Ihey pass through that  seaside municipality. The railway officials  sprayed the blackberry bushes at the height  of the berry picking season without telling  the municipal authorities in White Rock  Ihat they would be doing it.  Concerned residents ask why the  spraying if it had to be done couldn't be  done a few weeks later when the berries are  over. A public relations spokesman for the  CNR said that the herbicide used was  Tordon 101. As usual hc described it as  being harmless, saying that thc worst that  could happen was that it might give anyone  who ingested it a slight stomach ache.  White Rock Mayor Dan Macdonald  said it was alright, it had rained after the  berries were sprayed, that 150 pounds of  berries would have to be eaten before ill  effects were felt (information source not  given), that the spraying had been done by  a reputable firm which had the proper  licence.  The mayor may be right, let's hope so,  but there are other sources which label  Tordon 101 as carcinogenic, that is cancer-  causing, and have linked it with birth  defects in test animals. It is fair to say that  the jury is still out on the effects of Tordon  101.  The top officials of the BNR when  contacted in Denver, Colorado,  apparently had no doubts about the  matter. The superintendent of Operations  in Denver said, "Why the hell don't they  stay off our property." The incident seems  unfortunately typical of the arrogance and  irresponsibility one meets again and again  on the part of the rich and powerful  whenever any of their actions are  questions.  Order in Sechelt  It may just be that order is being  discerned in the midst of what has seemed  like chaos for much of the recent weeks.  Village Clerk Shanks and Planner Denis  Walton with a little assistance from the  provincial government and the Regional  Board seem to bc getting the situation in  hand and orderly government seems again  a possibility.  We have observed before that much of  the problems of the Sechelt Council seem  to have been caused because the pace of  change attendant on the completion of the  sewer line and the constant urging of eager  developers caused them to lose control of  the situation. It's worth remembering that  it really rarely hurts to take one's time, to  give a situation a second scrutiny before  making decisions. It's a lesson that future  aldermen might do well to remember.  rr"T7-??':.  ���f^^'p'"'- -.  ��� ���:���-'������ Vi'     : -*?i;.,V';c/  m       Sports fans'redemption  0||�� ���" * �� tmS - - ���   -   ���  ** * I   -��� mm**mVM *��.'       -'  There is something highly unusual  happening here on the Pacific Coast of  Canada in this year of 1979. For years  professional sports teams from Vancouver  have been something of a joke. With the  exception of the banner year of 1964 when  thc Lions took the Grey Cup there has  been nothing for the long-suffering British  Columbia sports fans to enthuse about.  Suddenly the Lions are leading their league  with five victories and a tic in seven games  and the Vancouver Whitecaps are  performing heroically in the struggle for  top continental honours in the North  American Soccer League.  It's too early to count the Lions as Grey  Cup winners. We have seen them fold  before and they could well do it again. The  Whitecap story has to be seen as a definite  success   story   however.   Thirty-two  thousand rabidly enthusiastic fans  crowded Empire Stadium Saturday night  to encourage a team which because of the  ridiculous playoff system was required to  win not one but two games in one night  against a team they hadn't beaten all year.  The Whitecaps did it and consolidated  their position as one of the recognized two  or three top teams on the continent.  Besides the success story of the  Whitecaps themselves their emergence and  that of the NASL is an indication that at  long last the grand and aristocratic old  game of soccer has broken through the  defences of the North American public and  the game is well on its way to achieving the  pre-eminence on this continent that it has  long enjoyed in the rest of the world.

The vessel had been built in sections  in Scotland for shipment by freighter around Cape Horn. In 1891 she  was assembled by the Union, and was the first steel ship launched In  British Columbia. Here she is moored to the private wharf built by  George Gibson and his sons with the useof a pile-driver fashioned from  the butt of a huge cherry tree.

Peterson  tel|fi!i��f"  Musings  John Burnside  Slings 8e Arrows  >^  George Matthews  ___m\ \  by John Bumside  The vexatious question of  dogs gets aA airing on the  editorial pages again this week.  From Roberts Creek'comes'.a  diatribe in verse from a  representative of that portion  of the community who would  agree with Raymond Hull,  author and one-time Gower  Point resident, that the dog is  man's best fiend and have  them'all destroyed. As usual it  is the dog at large which best  arouses ire, running loose,  digging, defecating, destroying  and generally creating  mayhem.  On the other hand there  came a request from an old  friend in Gibsons that we  reprint the article beside the  anti-canine verse warning of  the cruelty of keeping an  animal chained. Her complaint  is that the chained dog in its  misery disturbs the entire  neighbourhood.  It is, of course an old  argument twixt dog-lover and  detester and one that will not be  resolved in the pages of this  week's Coast News, but I feel it  somewhat incumbent upon  myself, as the owner of not one  but two fair-sized dogs, to  make some comment on the  debate.  Surely the first observation  that must be made is that the  dog is the responsibility of  whoever owns it and the  problem lies in the fact that all  too many people think it's  'groovy' to have a dog bul have  no sense of. responsibility for  thc actions of that dog. Nor  does this type of owner usually  have any worthwhile conception of the nature of the beast  he has chosen to keep.  Dogs must be kept under  supervision and control, that is  fact number one. Dogs  roaming free virtually always  get into mischief of one form or  another. As a gentleman in  Halfmoon Bay observed to me  not too long ago, a dog is a  social ignoramus. They are by  their nature runners and tearers  neither of which proclivity is  particularly reconcilable with  much of modern life. It must be  recognized   by   thc   dog's  defenders that that lovable old  pooch   curled   by   the   fire  sleeping so peacefully may have  tirpd.h'Blsclf.oW.chasjng deer;  andon hjs way home from tbftf."  may have torn asunder 'the  neighbour's * garbage bag and  strewn the contents all over her  yard while in suit of those  turkey bones.  No, I am afraid that there is  absolutely no doubt that we  can't have dogs running  unattended. Their capacity for  destruction when they get into  it is truly remarkable. Nor is it  by any stretch of imagination  desirable to have dogs forming  into packs and running and  hunting together. There is a  group psychology at work  which can turn docile old  Rover into a slavering killer in  the running pack and a pack of  dogs with their blood up can be  dangerous to more than deer.  So some kind of control is  absolutely necessary but I  emphatically agree with my  friend from Gibsons that the  answer is not a four-foot length  of chain. On a couple of  occasions I have had the  misfortune to live in the same  neighbourhood as a chained  dogs and the haunting, piteous  lament of the poor creatures is  really more than one can  readily bear.  Probably some sort of  confinement for much of their  time is necessary. Ideally if the  dog owner has a fenced yard  which keeps his dog on his own  property then the problem is  solved to the satisfaction of the  neighbourhood and with no  great discomfort for the dog.  Failing a fenced yard, then  perhaps a dog house with  fenced walkway is the answer  for those who do not wish to  share their premises with these  hair-shedding and often  odorous beasties.  However the dog is confined,  however, be it in the yard, in a  dog-run or in the kitchen he has  real needs that must be  attended to and one of the chief  of these is exercise. The dog is,  as we have said already,  designed for running and run  he must. The need for exercise  is absolute. The well exercised  dog is far less likely to get  himself into trouble and cause  the neighbours grief than is the  under-exercised dog with more  energy than he knows what to  do with*.     *,    ,      ,      ,  ft* cannot be overstressed  that a dog should be well  exercised every day. Anyone  who is not willing to set aside  the time once or twice a day to  take their dog out for a run  somewhere where it will not  cause offence to others just  simply shouldn't have a dog. If  the dog is well run then  confinement for him is no great  hardship. Besides running what  they do extremely well is sleep  and most dogs will be quite  content in their yard, or dog-  run, or corner of the kitchen if  they've had a good run  sometime during the day.  The first law of dog-  ownership, then, is that the dog  must be exercised. He must also  be under control of his owner  when being exercised and for  this many people should think  seriously of attending dog-  obedience classes. Dog training  is a knack which can be  acquired and it definitely  consists of more than just  raising your voice as your dog  for the fifteenth time in a row  drops a bundle on your  neighbour's yard. Any dog-  owner or would-be dog-owner  without a long acquaintance  with the animal might derive  real benefit from dog-  obedience classes.  In conclusion there is no  question that dogs must be  controlled. Therein we do agree  with the versifier from Roberts  Creek. But not on four-foot  chains for all of their days.  Therein do 1 agree with the lady  from Gibsons. The alternative  is for dog owners to realize that  dogs take time and need  attention and must be trained  to be as little nuisance as  possible to the people in whose  society they live in the  neighbourhood. Anyone who  hasn't got the time to train and  exercise a dog shouldn't own  him.  It is possible to have a dog,  have that dog happy and to  leave your neighbours  undisturbed by the dog's  presence. It takes time and  trouble but it is what he who  owns a dog owes' to his  neighbours.  by George Matthews  The B.C. Ministry of  Education has been promoting  . the notion of an open learning  institute for about three years.  The basic idea, as I understand  it, is to use television as an  instructional instrument in  order to bring higher learning  to the more isolated regions of  the province. The idea is not a  new one. Britain has had an  open learning university for ten  years and has served over  eighty thousand students.  Athabasca University in  Alberta has been operating five  years and has graduated its first  class of students.  This fall the first classes  using the open learning  concept, will be offered in B.C.  Initially, the offerings and  registration will be somewhat  limited but presumably,  sometime in the future,  registration and offerings will  be more widely available.  The way classes will operate  this fall is that students will  register at a local college,  somewhere in the province, and  will take classes at the college,  not from a lecturer in the  traditional sense, but from a  T.V. monitor. In this case,  however, it's not simply a case  of sitting in front of a T.V. set  and taking notes, rather, the  student will be able to talk back  to the T.V. set or at least the  person who is on the screen.  The classes are presented  from B.C.I.T. in Burnaby and  are broadcast over the Anik B  satellite. The person presenting  the class is in the studio and can  be seen and heard by students  in classrooms all over the  province. Further, because of  the unique technology of the  satellite, the lecturer will be in  constant audio contact with all  of his students. Obviously, he  won't be able to see them all,  but he can talk to them, ask  questions, respond to answers  and so on. Also, the students in  one class, for instance  Kamloops, will be able to talk  to the students in another class,  say in Port Alberni.  In other words, instead of a  teacher working in a classroom  with students within four walls,  the province ofB.C. will be the  classroom.  The satellite classroom has  been tried before with mixed  success.   In   1977, a  limited  number of programs were  produced experimentally at the  University of Victoria.  Broadcasting these classes  frOffl"'B:C:.I.T.,''the;.1ecturers  were able to communicate with  people in places like Pitt Lake  and White Horse. These first  classes used the Hermes  satellite and presented non-  credit, single program classes in  subjects like social work, law  and anthropology. Short  lessons were presented from  pre-taped material, then the  lecturers opened the class for  discussion, often by going off  the air for a few minutes to  allow students to formulate  questions and comments. The  rest of the air time was used for  discussion.  If satellite education works,  and there seems no reason why  it shouldn't (it is being used all  over the world from Europe to  the South Pacific), it opens up  incredible possibilities for the  future. Using the same  technology, it could be possible  sometime in the future, for a  lecturer at say Oxford or  Harvard, to deliver classes to  students in places like Nelson,  Dawson or even Gibsons.  For the time being, obviously ���  this won't mean much to  people on the Sunshine Coast.  We don't have the facilities yet  to receive these programs. But,  if classes can be given in places  like Pitt Lake, the facilities  needed can't be all that difficult  to obtain. While the  capabilities of the system are  not yet such that you can take  classes in your own living-  room, it is not beyond the  imagination to suggest that  some day we will be able to  register for classes and instead  of going to the bookstore to  buy our books, we will rent a  few pieces of equipment, take  them home, plug them in and  have our classes over our own  T.V. sets.  In the meantime, if we had  the necessary equipment  somewhere in our area, we  could be going to classes sooner  than we think. Imagine the  possibilities for our students  who now have to move to town  to go to college. Someday, and  I suspect sooner than we think,  that possibility will be open to  people in our area who want to  extend their knowledge and  qualifications.

They multiplied, these hirsute hounds,  Since they'd nothing else to do;  And left their turds in little mounds,  to desecrate the dew.  Now this fair village of Roberts Creek,  Where man and nature met;  Becomes more filthy every week,  Thanks to this pesky pet.  They bark andi bite and snarl and yelp,  And mill about in dozens;  Every cur and hound and whelp.  With his sisters, brothers and cousins  They yap at the lady fetching her mail,  They bite the man on the bike;  And then they pee on your garbage pail,  And it's someone else's tyket  The peace is shattered most every night,  As your neighbour's dogs run wild;  and tear up your lawn as they howl and fight,  And terrify somebody's child.

Peter Trower  aM}/aaammam%m i^m *Vi��i*Viai -yam **m**m  by Elizabeth McCutcheon,  Editor, Animals Canada  Reprinted from Fredertcton  S.P.C.A. Newsletter  Recently Joan Mercer of the  Newfoundland and Labrador  SPCA sent Animals Canada a  newspaper article, Tasha'i  Story, of the sad neglect and  terror suffered by a chained  dog in her area.  Several board members of  the Canadian SPCA in  Montreal continually bring up  the subject of the suffering by  the chained dog in rural areas  of Quebec.  The sum total of abuse to  each and every chained dog  . adds up to a lot of Buffering.  Perhaps in numbers it does not  approach that in other areas of  abuse but it is time it is  recognized by humane societies  and more attention directed to  it.  The following timely article  appeared in the Fredericton  SPCA Newsletter in March.  What is the most common  problem of animal abuse with  which the SPCA deals? The  answer, clearly, is what we refer  to as the chained dog problem,  one all too familiar to our  inspectors. A family acquires a  puppy, and it soon grows into a  large and active dog. The  children lose interest, the  parents refuse to be bothered.  The young dog winds up on a  four-foot chain in the backyard  on which it will spend the rest  of its life. It is fed on table  scraps, when anyone remembers. In summer it rarely has  water, in winter at best a wood  frame shed for protection. It is  never off the chain, nevei  excercised, never walked, and  rarely noticed. In these cases  the psychological deprivation  far exceeds the physical neglect.  . From the end of its four-foot  universe the dog must watch  the children it loves or would  like to love play while ignoring  him, or worse, teasing him  cruelly. The dog must plead for  the scraps of attention thrown  its way a few minutes a week  out of the dull hours of its  chained existence. It finds it  impossible to defend and  protect those who in any case  have no need or wish for its  endless devotion.  Our workers at the SPCA  animal shelter know the  resulting chained dog  syndrome all too well: the  periods of depressed listless-  ness alternating with frenzied  barking; unpredictable  behavior such as snappishness  and cowering; sexual '���  misbehavior; and no sign of the  discipline, intelligence, and  self-control that is the mark of  the well-reared dog.  Are such animals abused?  When neighbours' complaints  bring our SPCA inspectors to  the scene, indignation and  denials fly. In all but the most  extreme cases the SPCA finds  its hands tied. When a dog is  fed, owned, and not physically  mistreated then law and, all too  common, opinion assume that  no abuse has occurred. Both  need to learn that abuse and  neglect have a psychological as  well as a physical dimension,  and, unfortunately, the chained  dog syndrome may be so  common in the (Gibsons) area  as to be the norm rather than  the exception. Only public  education, increased general  understanding of the needs of  animals, and the tactful work  of our inspectors can ease the  situation of the dog that is  spending its' life at the end ofa  short chain. Promoting this  work remains one of the  SPCA's highest priorities in  educational program.

But the  horrendous looking one-eyed  man (who appears to be pulling  rigging on the trackside-lree)  still piques my curiosity.  "Know anything about that  character?" I ask Vic.  "Hell, haven't you ever  heard about him before? That's  old Hot-Dog Kiewitz. Used to  be a hooktender before he got  burned-out on booze. Claim  he's queer as a thirteen dollar  bill. Regular old arsehole-  bandit. He pretty well keeps to  himself when he's in camp but  they say he buys boys in the  city."  "Guess he's too damn ugly  to get women," I conjecture.  "Sure glad he ain't staying in  this bunkhouse." I'm actually  rather surprised. Homosexuals  are rare at the bullwork end of  the logging business although  I've run across a couple of fey  flunkies in cookhouses before.  The cold-deck show looks to  be a fairly reasonable  proposition. It is about fifteen-  hundred feet further up the  road from the previous  location, maybe twelve-  hundred feet into the toolies  and already rigged up. The  spar-tree   and   small   Skagit  Pages  from a Life-Log  Peter Trower  donkey sit on a hogback ridge  with down-timber strewn  thickly around them. "Guess  I'm goin' to kinda have to leave  you on your own with this,"  says Carmody. "She's ready  to go but we've gotta move the  track-tree. If you get in any  trouble, just holler."  Christ! I've only just become  a rigging-slinger and.now he  wants me to be a hooktender in  addition. This is sure some  chintzy, cut-corners outfit. But  I have Perce and Vic and the  engineer, Reg. Tumulo seems a  reasonable enough man. My  main liability is the vacuous  Madoff but I reckon we can  muddle through somehow. We  get the lines strung out and  begin yarding uphill from a  bowl-like depression where  most of the timber seems to  have rolled. It isn't near as bad  as the former show however  and we rack up a pretty fair log  count by quitting time.  I figure I have things  reasonably well under control  but the following morning,  Cagney-like Carmody tosses a  bombshell at me. "Goddamn  chokerman quit on the big  machine," he says. "Guess I'm  going to have to borrow Perce  here for a bit."  "Yeah,   okay,"   \   say  0��^%.

That leaves only the  hopeless Madoff to aid me out  on the rigging. They seem to be  chronically short-handed at Ox  River and it certainly isn't from  lack of men in town. Some of  the less scrupulous gypos  operate in this fashion  deliberately to cut down on  their payroll costs. I have been  vaguely promised a whistlepunk and another chokerman  but they don't materialize. I  suspect they haven't even been  ordered. I should bitch like hell  or quit, I suppose, but I want to  make a bit of a stake first and,  in a way, the situation is  affording me a chance to get  some useful experience very  quickly. The yarding is short,  the ground tolerable and  Carmody leaves me almost  exclusively to my own devices.  The major fly in the ointment  is Nick Madoff. The going  wouldn't be bad at all with a  savvy and seasoned chokerman  like Perce, but the Doukhobor  is another story, His ineptitude  is monumental. The poor guy  tries in his lumbering way but  he can't seem to grasp the basic  rudiments of what we are  supposed to be doing.  "Christ!" says Vic, "you ought  to ask Carmody to give that  dummy his walking-papers." I  know he's right and yet I hold  off. Madoff is such a big well-  meaning boob, I suppose I feel  vaguely sorry for him.

Madoff nods  eagerly like a little kid and  assures me that he will. But he  seems to be totally uncoordinated and in his willingness to  please, fumbles and stumbles  even more. I decide to put him  on the whistles and set the turns  myself. This seems to work  somewhat better but I'm doing  two men's work and I know the  situation can't continue much  longer.  We change roads and I begin  to run into trouble. There is a  long, rock overhang about two-  hundred feet from the tree and I  can see no way to divert the logs  around it. As a consequence, I  begin to have a rash of hangups. Every second turn noses in  under the shelf and stops dead.  I am compelled to rechoke the  logs at the opposite end and  pivot them over the barrier. To  compound matters, Madoff  (whose whistles have been  hesitant but fairly-accurate up  to this point) starts fluffing and  mishearing my signals. I am  already hoarse, exhausted and  mightily irritated when, just  before quitting time, he  inexplicably blows a go-ahead  before I am safely out of the  bight and almost nails me. It is  absolutely the last straw.  That night 1 corner  Carmody, spell out the  situation and demand that I be  relieved of Madoffs services  before he does me in. He allows  that things sound pretty  panicky and later informs the  unfortunate bumhler that he  can pick up his time in the  morning. Simple Madoff  doesn't seem to realize that it  must have been me who got  him fired and comes over to say  goodbye. I feel illogically as  though I've just kicked a lame  dog but it was his butt or mine.  I hope he gets the hell back to  his daddy's farm and stays out  of logging-camps from now on.  Next morning, I get Perce back  again and things start to go  better.

Coast visitors  Visiting the Sunshine Coast  last week was Alan Emmott,  ex-mayor of Burnaby and  presently Chairman of the  Greater Vancouver Regional  District, with his wife June.  Emmott was mayor of  Burnaby when he served as  First Deputy Chairman of the  G.V.R.D. when it was first  formed in 1967. He resigned his  position in 1968 to contest the  mayoralty of Vancouver  . against Tom Campbell.  " He returned tot thufflcipal  politics in 1973 as alderman in  ''Burnaby and 'G.'V.'R.D.  director. He was elected  Chairman last December and is  in the first year of a two-year  term.  In conversation with the  Coast News, Emmott said that  he was meeting soon with  Municipal Affairs Minister  Vander Zalm and Finance  Minister Wolfe on transit  matters. He said he was  awaiting Vander Zalm's  conclusion about the role of  regional government and said  he had found the findings of the  Farmer Commission on the  matter surprisingly positive.  Emmott said that while  regional government was  usually a rural manifestation in  the case of the G.V.R.D. and  the Capital Region of Victoria  it was a government of  contiguous urban munici|  ities. The chief concerns of the  G.V.R.D. were sewage and  water, regional parks, regional  planning, hospitals, which  parallels the local concerns.

Mrs. Madsen received a  lovely clock radio from her  friends and co-workers at the  Post Office, perhaps to enjoy a  little music while savouring the  long leisurely mornings that lie  ahead.

WATCH  FOR  OUR SPECIAL  MIRROR SALE  COMING  SOON  886-7359  Hwy 101 8, PraltRd., Gibsons 888-7369  THE ONLY COMPLETE QLASS SERVICE  ON THE 8UNSHINE COAST Bookman's Corner  The DeviPs Dictionary  Coast News, August 28,1979  by John Moore  Years ago, a friend's older  sister, aware of my interest in  books, gave me a whole box of  them. This was in the early  Sixties and she was divesting  herself of everything that  wouldn't fit into a knapsack.  Her unusually good taste,  generosity and the lure of the  open road added up to a  bonanza for me. Among the  treasures I excavated from that  seemingly bottomless box of  words was a paperback copy of  The Devil's Dictionary by  Ambrose Bierce. I'd never  heard of the book or author but  asampleofthecontents offered  on the back cover���"Egotist, n;  A person of low taste, more  interested in himself than in  me."���immediately captivated  me. Inside, a glance at the  "A's" proved even more  fascinating and entertaining...  "Adage, n. Boned wisdom for  weak teeth."..."Adore, v.t.  To venerate expectantly...  "Air, n. A nutritious substance  provided by a bountiful  Providence for the fattening of  the poor."..."Apologize, v.i.  To lay the foundation for a  future offence."...The book  abounds with these pearls and  many of Bierce's pithiest  definitions have found their  way into common usage,  though people seldom  recognize The Devil's  Dictionary as their source. I'd  heard this definition of a bore,  "a person who talks when you  wish him to listen," before, and  his definition of a bride, "A  woman with a fine prospect of  happiness behind her." The  entry for Bride is immediately  followed by this cryptic note;  "Brute, n. See HUSBAND."  To say that Bierce had a  jaundiced eye puts it mildly.  His "dictionary" is a cynic's  handbook. Though it contains  what H.L. Mencken called  "some of the most gorgeous  witticisms in the English  language," Bierce remains  comparatively   unknown   in  company with epigrammists  like Oscar Wilde or, more  pointedly, his fellow American  Mark Twain. Like Twain,  Bierce came to the American  West in the late 1800's and  spent many years there as a  newspaperman. As a reporter  and, later, editor for various  papers he was a relentless  polemicist and satirist, his  razor sharp pen always turned  upon the rogues and rascals,  regardless of rank or position,  who were abundant in frontier  California. Journalism was no  tame profession in those  turbulent times; the libel suit  had yet to replace the pistol and  Bowie knife and though it was  said of Bierce that his pen "was  dipped in wormwood and  acid", he was also known to  have carried a large revolver at  all times to accomodate those  who wished "to go farther into  the matter". Even his own  profession was not sacred. He  defined a reporter as "a writer  who guesses his way to the  truth and dispels it with a  tempest of words". (I'll spare  John the lengthy diatribe on  the subject of Editors.)  Though he was recognized as  perhaps the greatest living wit  of his day, his present obscurity  is largely a result of his  extremism of vision. He could  write short stories that are  classics of the genre and horror  stories that rival Poe's (his  collection, In The Midst of Life,  is a must for short-story  freaks), but he lacked the  gentler touch and the sweeping  vision of Mark Twain. He  could never have written  Huckleberry Finn. Bierce was  much too busy bashing ants  with sledgehammers.  The source of Bierce's  unparalled cynicism has  inspired several lengthy  biographies. In his later years,  (he remained astonishingly  healthy and vital into his  seventies), he himself hinted  that his bitterness stemmed  from having driven away or  outlived   everyone   he   ever  loved. He said he was so old he  was "ashamed to be alive".  This, however does little to  explain the contempt with  which he viewed his fellow  human beings for most of his  life..."Man, n. An animal so  lost in rapturous contemplation of what he thinks he is as to  overlook what he indubitably  ought to be. His chief  occupation is extermination of  other animals and his own  species, which however,  multiplies with such insistent  rapidity as to infest the whole  habitable earth and Canada."  Bierce's brother attributed his  inflexible cynicism to a serious  head wound Bierce received in  the Civil War. (A man of great  physical courage, he was twice  wounded and brevetted Major  by special act of Congress for  distinguished service.)  Certainly his experiences in the  war profoundly influenced his  view of life, many of his stories  deal with the irony and futility  of war. Bierce was a voracious  reader in his youth and it is  more than likely that his  youthful contact with  humanity's highest ideals  followed by experience of one  of life's harshest realities  produced in him an admirable  illustration of the fact that  Idealism and Cynicism are  reverse sides of the same coin.  Though he had scant  patience ("A minor form of  despair, disguised as a virtue")  for revolutionaries, ("Revolution, n. In politics, an abrupt  change in the form of  misgovernment.") whatever  their professed politics,  ("Politics, n. A strife of  interests masquerading as a  contest of principles. The  conduct of public affairs for  private advantage.") Bierce in  his seventies paradoxically  joined the staff of Pancho Villa  in 1913. Several months later  all letters from him abruptly  ceased. Much of the mystique  of Ambrose Bierce stems from  the mystery surrounding his  death. There is evidence to  suggest that he went to Mexico  with the deliberate intention of  getting himself killed. "To be a  Gringo in Mexico," he wrote,  "That is indeed euthanasia."  Varying unsubstantiated  reports suggest that, disenchanted with Villa, he was shot  while deserting. It is unlikely  that Bierce was ever  particularly enchanted with  Villa in the first place. It was  also said that, having changed  sides in the war, he was  captured and shot by an officer  who didn't know who he was  and couldn't be bothered trying  to interrogate an uncooperative prisoner whose Spanish  was minimal. It was as  meaningless and violent an end  as Bierce could have wished.  Though he once defined  Legacy as "a gift from one who  is legging it out of this vale of  tears", (he was not above a  shameless pun), Bierce left a  priceless legacy to those to  whom The Devil's Dictionary is  addressed; those who "prefer  dry wines to sweet, sense to  sentiment, wit to humour, and  clean English to slang". As  Bierce himself said, "Dictionary, n. A malevolent literary  device for cramping the growth  of a language and making it  hard and inelastic. This  dictionary, however, is a most  useful work."

SHOP TALK  by Bill Edney  SUNDAY AND HOLIDAY SHOPPING  RECIPE OF THE WEEK  by    Nest Lewis   formerly Home Economic Teacher Elphinstone High School   1965-1976  ADD A LITTLE SPICE TO YOUR LIFEI  This week's column is entirely devoted to the art of making chutney. At this time of  year those of us with gardens are desperately wondering what to do with the apples that '  keep falling on our heads and chutney making gives one a creative opportunity in  combining different ingredients to provide distinctive flavours. Good chutney should  have a mellow flavour so cook it slowly then keep It in a cool, dark place to let the  flavours mature.  English Chutney  A year ago (July 19, 1978) I wrote an article on Sunday  shopping. It detailed the public needs In the present day society  lor famlly shopping on Sunday and our reasons for providing the  service. I don't suppose there are many who have not expressed  their gratitude that we were open to serve their needs.  At the upcoming Annual Convention of the Union of B.C.  Municipalities, Sept. 5,6 and 7, this sub|ect will be debated. Ten  resolutions, taking different approaches and expressing differing  concerns will, II passed, urge the Provincial Government to cease  and/or control bolh Sunday and Holiday shopping. Most aim to  have il stopped wilh certain exceptions. The exceptions are so  restrictive as to virtually make it Impossible lor you to shop a full  line of fresh foods or any other meaningful items.  The prime mover and lobbyist, whose arguments I have read  and heard on talk shows, Is the B.C. Division of the Retail  Merchants Association. We are not members, perferring instead  the broader scope of the Chamber ot Commerce. The Retail  Merchants claim to be speaking for the small corner stores whose  livelihood Is threatened, they say, by the large supermarkets. One  of the resolutions presented by Burnaby entitled "The Retail  Business Holiday Act," is very definitive, requiring closure every  Sunday and every established holiday, being 11 in number. The  exceptions would be stores selling food, newspapers, tobacos,  antiques and handicrafts, but they must meet two other  conditions. They may not employ more than three people, and  the total area serving the public may not be larger than 2400 sq. ft.  Our in-store area Is approx. 5500 sq. tt. and none too large to  provide an adequate choice of fresh, frozen and canned  products.  The main thrust seems to be (a) either to give the Municipalities  complete powers to regulate store hours, or (b) to force the  Provincial Government to provide regulation.  The Issues ere complex, each area, each personal need being  different. I am horrified at the prospect of sweeping legislation  that puts us all in one package ol regulations.  Some of the preamble to some of the upcoming motions  suggests that this extra service is a luxury and can only add to the  price tag. This is ridiculous to say the leastl In 1978 our annual  llxed costs (without regular fixed payroll) were $155,889. Divided  by a daily operation of seven days per week this amounts to $427  per day. If we took out every Sunday and every holiday, they  would be $526 per day.  My argument is primarily this.  1. The need for our type and size of service on Sunday is well  established.  Industry la generally on a seven day wee*. Tourism la one  of our graalaat sources on Income. They arrive here on our  ferry system al ell limes, olt-tlmea delayed many hours and  In need ot food services.

The album,  buoyed by the popular singles,  was a success and the group  quickly attained a top spot  among rock's heirarchy. A  year passed and again they  released a successful album,  Sleeper Catcher. This time the  universally appealing Remin-  scing took the album to the top.  Another year has passed,  and as if bound to some sdlar  cycle (or recording contract),  Little River Band has a new and  promising album, First Under  The Wire. And the featured  single Lonesome Loser will  surely enhance the album's  popularity. The song is pure  a,  jongispii  WANTED  Used Furniture  or What Ham You  AL'S  USED FURNITURE  WE BUY BEER  BOTTLES  CENTRE  bands overflow in raw energy  and talent faun Little River  Band.  I have a few complaints  about some of their other faster  tunes. It's Not A Wonder has an  odor of any one ofa half dozen  B.T.O. songs. And, as if that's  not bad enough, listen to Hard  Life. It's Alvin Lee's I'd Like To  Change The World resurrected.  Perhaps the writer, Graham  Goble, has never heard the  song, but it's more plausible he  just included the progression  because he liked it. Whatever,  it's still not a good idea to use  such a familiar progression in a  new song.  Strangely enough, these two  criticisms tie in with an overall  positive observation. First  Under The Wire is more  conservative than any of their  previous albums. Why should  that be positive? Because  conservative, in this case,  means back to a more  recognizable sound. And even  Little River Band: a melodic  tune with some interesting play  on chords, incredible lead  vocals and harmonies and solid  bass and percussion work that  tie all these dynamics together.  No other band I know of  possesses such a fine balance of  musical forces. I think this  largely accounts for Little River  Band's success in concert. The  dynamics that manifest as  bizarre   gimmicks   in   lesser  though some tunes may lack  originality, I'd much rather  hear Little River Band perform  tunes that one can easily relate  to than suffer through musical  experiments that appeal only to  one's intellect and not to one's  heart.  There's another pertinent  angle. The success or failure of  conservative music usually  depends on the quality of the  lead melody. First Under Tbe  Wire is a definite success. Songs  like Cool Change and Middle  Man show a real understanding  of the value of pure melody.  And, coming full circle, melody  shows off Little River Band's  greatest strength���vocals. Glen  Shorrock and Beeb Birtles have  packed every track with the  best lead and harmony vocals  in modern music. That's why I  like the album so much. Little  River Band has concentrated on  doing what they do best.  Concert-wise, I expect First  Under The Wire to do well.  Every song is simple enough to  be presented live without losing  much of the studio perfection.  Lonesome Loser is an obvious  choice, along with The Rumor  and even It's Not A Wonder.  But watch for Man On The Run.  This rocker, tucked away near  the end of the second side, will  be absolute dynamite in  concert.  Next Little River Band  concert? Judging from their  punctual album releases and  subsequent tours, I'll bet  they're in the Coliseum before  the end of October.  Farflung Community project  Innuit communications  !  at Baker Lake.

"The Inukshuk  Team began work in Frobisher  Bay early in 1979 with the help government has only 20 which  of Nunatsiakmut, the first Inuit must be shared by all  organizations taking part in  DOC's Communications  Program. The Inukshuk  Project will be allowed to use  six stations for the six months  duration of the project.  "The communities involved  are Frobisher Bay, Pond Inlet,  Igloolik, Baker Lake, Eskimo  Point and Cambridge Bay. The  ground stations will be  returned to the government  once the project has ended.  Here are some of the things we  want to try out:  1) We want to find out what  it's like for people in one  community to give a  workshop to people in other  communities. Resource  people can sit in a room in  Frobisher Bay and say what  they have to say to a camera.  People in the other five  communities can sit in the  community hall and watch  and listen and will be able to  ask questions back and be  able to have a conversation  with each other over the  satellite.  2) We want to see what it  would be like for school  children to be taught a class  in Inuit culture and history  by teachers who are in  another community.  3) We want to see what it is like  for people in different  communities to hold a  meeting via satellite. They  could discuss common  problems and arrive at  decisions.  4) Other Inuit organizations  want to participate in these  experiments. The Inuit  Cultural Institute would  like   the' Inuit   Language  film production centre in  Canada. Their first job was to  produce three colour  videotapes for community  distribution and discussion.  The three films include a  documentary about land  claims in the eastern Arctic; a  drama involving a young Inuit  man who is sent to jail and an  information film about the  Inukshuk Project.  "These films were chosen as  examples of the different types  of videotapes which can be  produced to give the staff a  range of experience in writing,  filming, acting and technical  aspects of production.  "All communities will be  asked to fully participate and  get involved in the project.  Community councils and local  organizations will be asked  about the issues and interests  they would like to see covered  and will be helped to get those  programs produced.  "The regional co-ordinators  will travel to every community  in the region to discuss the  project and get ideas. From  these discussions the Project  Director and staff will make a  priority list and get to work on  production. At the same time  the regional co-ordinators will  be looking for people  experienced in videotaping for  film production and making a  list of those who would be  available for contract work.  They will make a list of  available equipment in the  region and under what  conditions it would be  available to the Inukshuk  Project. Trainees will be hired  for the new production centre y  Commission   to   use   the >  satellite to teach language j  classes.  5) The Qunnuayooaq Society, !  a senior citizen society in j  Frobisher Bay wants to try I  out culture and tradition j  classes for the children in ,  different communities.        '  From this program we will gain {  the knowledge and experience  we   require   to   build   a  broadcasting network linking  Inuit communities that will be  designed to meet the kinds of  communications systems that  should be developed for the  future. The Tapirisat and other  Inuit organizations will be able  to decide which system can best  serve their needs.  "The Inukshuk Project will |  also give the Tapirisat more j  influence with government in j  developing a system to use the J  best methods possible to aid the }  growth and development of (  Inuit society. Throughout the !  project   we'll  be  supporting J  existing   Inuit   film   and j  videotape   producers   by ]  purchasing  and   using  their  programs. By increasing thc  amount of northern programming available, wc will be able  to assist the CBC Northern  Service to fulfill its mandate to .  serve regional needs." * J  When I first met Tapirisat'**  Aani Palliser at a conference in  Halifax in 1976 we immediately  understood each other's  problem with the CBC. It was.  vitually the same. The needs of  northerners were being  ignored, (the CBC expressed  shame at what they were doing -  to Inuit society but couldn't  find the money for local  programming) and the needs of  the Southern Canadians living  in rural areas unable to receive  CBC's FM signals were and are  still of no concern to CBC.

Mi  If  Si  Wildlife  corner  by Ian Corrance  From Bugs To Beauty  Last Wednesday I got a call  from Maryanne West, her  butterlies were coming out. I'd  never seen this before so I high  tailed it over to her place on  Gower Point.  Maryanne has been releasing  tagged monarch butterflies for  a few years now. She'll be doing  a more scientific and detailed  write-up next week, so I'll  confine myself to the  observations of an uninformed  but interested observer.  Watching for a cocoon to  open is pretty much like  waiting for a kettle to boil,  except it takes longer.  Fortunately my hosts were  excellent and while I sat crosseyed for an hour, a supply of  zucchini pancakes were passed  to me.  It's fortunate that I kept my  eyes on it, because once things  start happening, it's only a few  seconds before the butterfly is  out and beautiful.  When the monarch comes  out at first, its wings are still  mostly folded up. It has a large  body full of fluid. This fluid is  pumped into the veins in the  wings; you can actually see  them expanding and becoming  ridged.  If you've been following the  T.V. series.I Claudius, you will  remember the metamorphosis  of Caligula from a simple  emperor to a god, and all the  unpleasantries that followed.  For me, it was a relief to witness  one that can also go the other  way.  As I wrote, Maryanne will be  doing a more detailed report,  but in the meantime if you see  any butterflies with white tags  on them, leave them alone.  Budgie  If people in the Langdale  area could keep their eyes open  for a blue, male budgie, it  would be much appreciated by  Darleen Hamelin. She lost hers  on Saturday.  Apparently the bird talks...it  says the usual budgie  stuff..."Pretty Pepper," (its'  name is Pepper), "Pepper  wants a cracker," and what  have you.  It sounds as if she's really  attached to it, so if you see it,  give her a call at 886-8254.  Woops, there's a happy  ending to this story. I was down  at Ken's Lucky Dollar on  Sunday afternoon and the first  words that Mrs. Edny said to  me were, "Did a Mr. Taner get  in touch with you? He found a  blue budgie." The rest is  history, Pepper is at home  enjoying its crackers.  Gibsons Wildlife Club  This autumn's first meeting  of the Gibsons Wildlife Club  will be at 7:30 p.m. on  Wednesday, September 5,  everyone welcome.  It's hoped that a Mr. Hurst  from the Salmonid Enhancement Program will be there,  complete with films and some  vibrate boxes. The boxes (if  they come) will be imbedded in  Husdon Creek, full of salmon  eggs. Apparently there is an  80% survival rate from the  boxes. So if I get confirmation  that he's coming, I'll let you  know next week.  You've probably noticed  that there is an infestation of  wasps this year.

The  bleached grasses of August  often reveal the need for  rethinking a few things and the  reshuffling of the small envious  notes you have taken on  gardens you have visited over  the season.  Consider maintenance. Is the  whole thing getting out of  hand? Perhaps there are a few  areas you'd rather grass over or  switch to low maintenance  shrubbery (remembering our  little friend Potentillia which  did indeed live up to all its  promises and bloom its sunny  little yellow flowers throughout  the most torrid heat waves.)  It's a good time now to dig  any new beds if you have  decided to go for expansion. If  so, do cut a nice generous curve  or loop for your new garden. A  square garden defeats the very  nature of growing things. The  same can be said for flowers  planted in marching rows.  Clumps and groupings are  much more charming with  spaces left for small shrubs and  bulbs.  After digging, place as much  straw, grass cuttings, rye and  compost as you can find over  the area to be dug in later and  start planning for colour and  height. If we start doing things  in this methodical way our  results will be much improved  instead of our more frequently  employed method of flinging in  the plants without pre-treating  the soil, in hopes of instant  flowers. 1 have made a note to  forget next year all about  supposedly exotic African  daisies. They are lean and tall  with a definite tendency to slop  over and the flower is really no  more exciting than old  fashioned Calendula which will  grow as a weed when planted  anywhere.  I intend to put in more snapdragons next year and some of  those huge brown-eyed  Gloriosa Daisies. I almost  didn't winter last year but my  snap-dragons did and have  been blooming ever since,  which makes them almost  perennial because last winter  was particularly tough on  many plants and bulbs and me!  I intend to do something  different with Schizanthus and  Impatiens next year, two  friendly little plants which  bloom so mightily with so little  From Skelly in Ottawa  Confusion on Petrocan  by Ray Skelly  Canada is one of the few  countries in the industrial  world that has no national  energy policy. That, in itself, is  quite extraordinary. In an  international situation where  whole economies are threatened by rising oil prices and  dwindling energy supplies, it is  a disastrous state of affairs.  The recent confusion over  Petro-Canada shows up some  of the problem. Since the  Second World War what little  Canadian ownership there was  in our own petroleum resources  was gobbled away by the  multmhtiSiill' corporations, to  the point where, outside of a  little co-operatively-owned  operation on the Prairies,  almost the entire industry in  Canada was either wholely or  partly owned by foreigners. At  last in 1975, the Liberals, who  had quietly overseen the  alienation of these resources  for generations, came to the  rescue���a timid rescue, at first,  admittedly. The vehicle was  Petro-Canada, a government-  owned corporation with the  specific task of increasing  "Canadian presence" in the  petroleum industry.  Slow to get started because it  lacked, until very recently, the  assets and structure to compete  Monarch emerges  This series of photographs of a Monarch butterfly  emerging from its cocoon was taken at Maryanne  West's home on Gower Point Road by Ian Corrance.  See Wildlife Column above.  with the multinationals, Petro-  Canada did well. In fact, it did  so well it offended the  Conservative Party which  receives considerable financial  support from the private oil  industry. Thus, the Conservatives argued that it was not the  place of government to be  involved in an industry that the  Almighty had placed in the  hands of the international  corporations and they  promised that, should they ever  form the government, they  would get rid of it.  Then came the Clark  government and the new Prime  Minister restated his intention^  ���t*m. '^privatize" Petro'Canada".  That. naturally threw the  operation of the corporation  into a tizzy: employees started  to worry about their jobs and  customers started to worry  about their contracts. Even the  private competition was a little  concerned about the effect of  the dismantling of the public  enterprise on the whole  industry.  If that were not enough, the  new government suddenly  pulled Petro-Canada out of its  role as the negotiator on behalf  of Canada in an important oil  import deal with Mexico.  The newspapers started  reporting that Petro-Canada  was demoralized by the whole  exercise and was at a virtual  stand-still. The Conservative  Energy Minister, Ray  Hnatyshyn, denied these  reports and then, presumably  to calm everyone's nerves, he  announced that Petro-Canada  would not be split up and sold  off to private interests. Indeed,  he said, it would continue to be  the state-owned corporation  "pursuing energy self-  sufficiency for Canada".  That was Friday, August 10.  Less than forty-eight hours  later, the Prime Minister got off  a plane from Africa, walked to  a news conference and told  reporters Petro-Canada would  indeed be sold off to the private  sector and his commitment to  "privatize" the company was  unchanged.  As Cyril Symes, the New  Democrats' energy critic  commented: "The minister of  energy apparently has come to  his senses and the Prime  Minister is yet to be  convinced."  Or, as the latest joke around  Ottawa goes, it appears that  Petro-Canada is being moved  to Jerusalem.  This week I am travelling to  Victoria, Port Angeles, Seattle  and Vancouver on the first leg  of my travels to develop a  policy paper for the NDP  Caucus on air-sea search and  rescue facilities on the West  Coast.  ���OMAN  CATHOLIC SERVICES  Rev.

By shopping locally, you indirectly help yourself.  Civic improvements are only possible if the governing bodies have a healthy tax base for their operations.  This is only possible in a healthy business community, supported by it's citizens.  A SUPER SALE SPECIAL in the city may look attractive, but after the added expenses of ferry fares, meals,  gasoline and impulse buying, you may well find your purse emptier than you would if you had shopped at  home.

That was the advice that Grace  Wiren, at one time supervisor  of elementary instruction in  Sechelt School District, gave to  young teachers, and it was a  precept she lived by herself. To  that she added a finely-tuned  understanding of people,  especially children.  Grace Wiren died suddenly  last year on August 4 in  Gibsons when she had just  returned after some years  absence to attend her granddaughter's wedding. She had  turned 75 on July 22. Grace  had remained in Gibsons for  several years after her  retirement from the School  District staff but a heart  condition demanded that she  live near one of herfamily. Just  prior to her death she had been  living with one of her daughters  in Cap de Madeleine, Quebec.  Anne Burns, former  secretary-treasurer of S.D. No.  46, recalls that she and Grace,'  then Grace Curtis, taught in the  Gibsons school in 1924. Later  in the '40's, Grace taught in the  Port Mellon school and district  records show that she was on  staff when the present School  District No. 46 was formed in  1946. Her long career as school  teacher and administrator in  the district continued until  1968 when she retired. Both  Fred Holland and Les Peterson  remember their days in Miss  Curtis' classroom. "If you were  thinking of some tomfoolery,"  said Fred, "it wasn't long  before you felt her looking at  you with those piercing brown  eyes. Then you got back to  work in a hurry." And Les said,  "Hers was a classroom where  you just naturally got on with  schoolwork and we respected  her for it." Sam Reid, Gibsons  elementary principal, remembers Grace's interesting teacher  conferences. "An outstanding  supervisor," he said, "and a  friend to both me and my  wife."  Lottie Campbell who grew  up here and is at present a  teacher in Cedar Grove school  remembers Grace as a second  mother to her. "From my  14th year to age lg when I  married, I was like one of her  daughters in her home. She  took time to give me piano  lessons because she enjoyed  helping young people," said  Lottie, and added, "I  remember that she was one  never to break a confidence and  a teacher in a small  community she was always  most  discreet  about  school  matters. When I wss s student  teacher here snd then as  teacher, I soon discovered her  great ability as a teacher.  'Every child has a talent,' she  would say, 'and it is up to us to  And it and develop it.' She was  most supportive of teachers  who were just beginning the  job." Lottie recalled that Grace  was a pioneer in looking for  ways to help those children  who had extreme difficulty  learning to read. And this was  at a time when the word  dyslexia had not been heard of.  "She told me," said Lottie, "  'You will learn more by  listening when you are a  teacher than by talking.' She  acted on that advice herself."  In the days when school  inspectors expected to see class  work following to the letter  what was outlined in the  daybook, Grace was not  perturbed to be found doing  something else if it had some  good purpose. When the  inspector found her class  examining a many-tentacled  sunftsh which some youngsters  had just brought in from the  beach after recess, she told him,  "There is a teachable moment  when the children are intensely  interested, and it is up to the  teacher to use it to the full when  it occurs. And this sunftsh is  one of those moments." And  very likely he secretly agreed  with her.  In 1938 Grace was appointed  consultant in primary and  intermediate grades and two  years later, supervisor. She  continued in that position until  1967. She spent the year before  her retirement as a learning .    ... ���  assistance teacher in O'b-^lqUp-^ .   f��p  Community Plan (cont'd)  Grace Wiren, former supervisor of S.D.

Through student's eyes  A glimpse of government  these itty bitty things are for Ihe  good of the community. Wc  should take this and rip it up,"  Killam said in answer to  Kolibas.  VDoug Roy did not write thc  plan, we did ourselves. Hc did  our wishes," said Henry Hall.  Former Village Planner  Doug Roy was not present at  the meeting but a request was  made for his attendance at Ihe  next meeting of Ihe committee.  Unfortunately Roy will not bc  available for the meeting.  According to Morgan  Thompson, the plan "is not  going to be perfect regardless  what Hayden Killam or Henry  Hall say".  According to Hayden  Killam, the plan "limits the  power of elected officials and  bamboozles all the people who  want to do something. There is  something in the plan  somewhere saying you can't do  anything".  "I'm through at the end of  November. I don't give a  damn...I am only here as an  observer," Morgan Thompson  said at one poml in t lu*  discussion.  "Developers practically  turned up to the committee  meetings en masse. Doug Roy  had his hands full chairing  meetings as developers  practically took over," Kolibas  said following the meeting.  Kolibas said she did nol want  to "take the plan back to  square one," as I layden Killam  indicated he would like to.

THERE'S A NEW  ii  Hi^I  itf  THAT YOU  ALREADY KNOW  On the fifth day of the  Forum for Young Canadians  we travelled to the Lester B.  Pearson Building (External  Affairs Building) for the  day's sessions.  The topic of our discussion was, "Canada and the  World". Mr. J.D. Hadwen,  Brigadier-General Wiseman, and Mrs. Catley-  Carlson took part in this  panel discussion. Mr. J. D.  Hadwen is from the  Department of External  Affairs. Brigadier-General  Wiseman currently retains  of Director  Policy Planning  in the Department* of  National Defense. Mrs.  Catley-Carlson is presently  the Vice-President of the  Multilateral Programme  Branch of the Canadian  International Development  Agency.  Mr. Hadwen outlined the  role the Department. of  External Affairs plays in the  area of foreign aid and  relations. Mr. .Hadwen  discussed the role Canada  plays in some Asian  Countries. For example, in  Singapore, Canada aids,  (through money and  expertise) in the Banking  and Central services  systems. While in some  countries that are relatively  independent from foreign  aid, like Burma, Canada may  only participate by exchanging ideas.  Brigadier-General Wiseman's oratorical style was  refreshing   in   comparison  with some of the speakers  we had heard during the  course of the forum.  Brigadier General Wiseman  answered our questions  frankly and to the point. We  discussed: Canada's  defense policy, the reasons  Canada is a member of Nato  and Norad, Canada's role as  an international peacekeeper, and the Defense  Department's role in the  protection of Canada's  national interest.  Mrs. Catley-Carlson  discussed the programmes  sponsored by the Canadian  International Development  Agency. Their programmes  include, food aid, and  community development  projects.  The topic of the next  session was Human Rights.  We were received by Mrs. R.  Cadieux, Privacy Commissioner of the Canadian  Human Rights Commission.  Mrs. Cadieux discussed the  Canadian Human Right  Code. Mrs. Cadieux also  explained why the Human  Rights Code should be  entrenched in the Constitution.  After lunch we discussed  the Judicial System with Mr.  Louis Duclos. Mr. Duclos is  presently employed by the  Law Reform Commission.  Mr. Duclos discussed the  function of Canada's major  courts and the function of  the Law Reform Commission.  Upon completion of our  discussion on the legal  system we went to the  Supreme  Court.  We  were  received by Mr. Hofley, the  Registrar of the Supreme  Court of Canada and  Supreme Court Judge  Justice J. Beetz. Mr. Hofley  discussed his duties as  registrar of the Supreme  Court. Justice J. Beetz spoke  on the topic of the function  of the Supreme Court and  his duties as a Supreme  Court Judge. When we  completed this session we  travelled back to Ashbury,  College for dinner.  After dinner we discussed  the question of National  Unity. We divided into  groups of twelve and  analyzed the situation. Our  group consisted of students  frOrf tiij" oVovihces   of  Canada. We discussed such  points as: what are the  reasons behind Quebec's  action? What are thc  problems associated with  maintaining a bilingual  country? Whaf effect would  separation have on the  economy of the Maritimes,  and what'is the difference  between separation and  sovereignty-a s so ciation?  We prepared a statement  which answered these  questions and many others.  I represented my group and  presented the statement to  the Forum students. We  found emotional arguments  were unavoidable in a  discussion of this type, but  they were minimal. After  each group stated their  opinions and ideas on the  current situation we sang  together ,a beautiful  rendition of O Canada in  English and French. The  discussion was so stimulating that many studcntslook  petitions home to bc signed  with the hope of encouraging Canada to remain  unified. Now, especially  since the dale of thc  referendum has been  announced, wc have little  time to sit idle as our country  counts down to the most  important date in Canadian  History.

FREE INSPECTION  ?  ]  Quality Floor Coverings  WE  MEASURE  UP  To  Our Customers'  Expectations  In Roberts Creek  Propane leaking  A small leak was reported last week in the Canadian Propane  tanks at Roberts Creek. Thc leak was reported to be aboul the  equivalent of the amount of gas from a propane cigarette lighter.  Fire Chief Glen Kraus of the Roberts I leek Volunteei Fire  Department investigated Ihe leak in company with Ihe lire  Commissioner from Vancouver and said thai Canadian Propane  have agreed to upgrade the condition ol the tank. The upgrading  will consist of purging the tank, supervised by thc Roberts Creek  Fire Department, and replacing the volume gauge which is the  source of the leak.  Fire Chief Glen Kraus stressed Ihe fact thai lhc co-operation he  received from lhc local Canadian Propane representatives could  not have been better. Corrective work on the leak, which was in a  seal in the volume gauge, is expected to take place iu Ihe near  future.  The lease for Ihe propane tanks on Roberts (reek wharf has  about four more years to ruti. It is hoped Ihat upon ils expiration  it will be possible to locate thc tanks in an oil tank farm further  removed from residential areas.

Helen  Millburn took second  �� New soccer approach  Some ferocious action at the Medieval Games of last year.  Second Annual Games and Banquet  Beginning on Saturday,  September 8, Doug Elson will  be initiating a new approach to  soccer for the smaller folk.  Basically, the plan is to  emphasize the development of  correct soccer techniques  rather than competition.  The budding soccer players  will be using a modified field  with appropriately-sized goals  and a size 3 ball. Each week,  there will be "games" for the  practice of the skills, but the  composition of the teams will  alter each week and there will  be only seven or eight on each  side. This ensures each player  the maximum opportunity to  come in contact with the ball.  Dr. Robbins, a strong  proponent of mini-soccer,  points out in an article from the  Level I Coaching Manual of  the Canadian Soccer Association, that, although in this last  century we have come to  recognise children as other  than "miniature adults", we  ignore their individual  differences when it comes to  baseball and hockey we fall  into the trap of thinking how  cute the children look dressed  up in their full sports  equipment���sometimes unable  to move���and being blinded to  the real needs of the child.  In this same article, Dr.  Robbins comments on the  good example of T-ball for  young children. "The game  teaches the basics and as a skill  develops, the child can move on  successfully to the game of  baseball."  From the coach's point of  view, there will not be the drive  to produce "winners" but  rather the objective of  developing each boy's potential  in an atmosphere of fun and  social interaction with his  friends.  If this sounds like the sort of  soccer your 7 - 8 year old boy  wants to play, he can meet with  Doug Elson at Gibsons  Elementary School at 10:00  a.m. on Saturday, September 8.

Follow These Commandments:  Always wear bright cap and vest so that  other Hunters can see you easily.  Always carry extra matches, hunting knife,  plenty of ammunition, a chocolate bar and a  length of rope when going into the bush.  Always inform someone where you are  going and approximately when you will be  back.  Also carry a Compass and USE IT before  going into unfamiliar country.  Neyer carry a loaded firearm in a car. It's  dangerous and it's illegal.  Be sure of your target, before you squeeze  the trigger.  Always carry your gun so that the muzzle is  under control at all times.  Guns must alwys be unloaded when carried  into camp, or not in use.  Make sure barrel and action are clear of  obstructions.  Unattended guns should be unloaded.  Never shoot at flat or hard objects or the  surface of water.  Avoid alcoholic drinks.  There is no place for the careless hunter or  the hunter who causes vandalism. Just  remember the next time you put a rifle to  your shoulder "Think, your trigger can't."  Obey the rules of safe gun handling and  insist that others who hunt with you do the  same, and you will be around to hunt the  next year.  Have your vehicle  completely checked  before going-  a) tire* ��� condition and pressures?  b) balancing ���shimmy and shakes?  c) alighnmenl ��� wanders and pulls?  d) front end suspension ��� worn and loose parts?  e) shocks ��� bouncing and wandering?  f) brakes ��� worn out, pulling?  g) exhaust systems ��� leaking?  oastai Tires  TIRE & SUSPENSION  CENTRE  886-2700  1 Mile West of Gibsons  am  mmm  All those planning to attend  the banquet are reminded that  it would be appreciated if you  would come fully costumed,  but failing that, a dagger (for  eating) and a bottle of wine are  a must.  Guest of honour at the  banquet will be Robert "Relic"  Clothier.  Prizes will be awarded for  games and tourneys. The final  event will be the Combat of  Champions���medieval combat  in the extreme using blade*  sword and axe with armor.  Winner of competitions will  automatically be invited to the  banquet.

Peterson  Again Selma found that she  could not maintain her interest  in a book. Now it was she who  glanced at the piano in her  aimless itinerary of the room.  She felt almost afraid to touch  the keyboard. Suppose it was  the instrument itself that wove  its spell about the player,  holding him and leading him  on from the first note he  released? Her fingers tingling at  the feel of the keys, and half  expecting an entire representation of her thoughts to issue  forth, she pressed a chord.  "I play the part of the male  animal. I observe the functions  of the animal that is alone. I  simply live."  Maybe it was the playing  combined with the thought; the  identification of the music with  the mood; the projection of the  physical creation of sound as  an embodiment of the ethereal  philosophy of the player...  "It is wise for the alone to  dwell but sparingly on the  subject of loneliness... There is  only so much of life. It does not  double in the companionship  of two, or treble in the  company of three... They do  not wish to offend by their  abstraction; they wish simply  be left alone."  Perhaps such a philosophy,  intrinsically illogical, was trie  logical outcome of the  circumstances out of which it  sprang. Perhaps���but she  could not let her thoughts  accommodate themr Ives. The  perspective was warped; the  viewpoint out of place. No  quantity of disassociated ones  can make a world. The fringes  of life can hold a few of them,  but there is room for none at its  centre, nor for many anywhere  within it. Yet she could not help  but feel that he did not know  himself where he belonged. She.  wondered, as the sounds of the  chord died away, whether she  herself knew, and whether she  could tell him if she did know.  Madray's skis hissed over the  wet snow. It was the first heavy  fall of the season, and he must  check the tiny mining  operation that yielded him the  means with which to lead a  simple life.  This was not ski country.  Tall balsam firs held circles of  bare ground about their trunks,  leaving the snow heaped  unevenly between. Undergrowth reached above its  surface to catch at the  encumbering planks. Clogged  canyons running down to the  lake sometimes forced him to  remove the skis entirely where  his tote trail crossed on  primitive log bridges.  It was mid-afternoon by the  time he had completed his  chores at the mine site. It woujd  be dark before he reached  home, he realized, even if he  were to hurry. And now a silent  file of flakes told him that the  snow, which had eased off  earlier, was on its way again.  One more ravine to cross,  then the trail led along an easier  route. He was nearly across the  bridge when he fell. His foot  touched an icy sheath under the  new layer and he was falling  through   space.   He   landed  upright, but the skis across his  shoulder destroyed his balance.  One foot, plunging through the  snow accumulated in the cleft,  found an uneven surface, and  shot from under him. A searing  pain flashed up his leg, to  explode in a ball of fire and  then a wave of darkness in his  brain. _ . .  To be continued  GIBSONS  LANES  Hwy 101  Leagues Start Sept. 4th  $2.00 Reg.

Come cry with me   by Ann Napier  Dear Ann,  I find a great puzzle in my  friends. Some of them profess  to be very religious. They are  not generous people. I guess  there are givers and takers in  this life. I find these people are  more takers. If I have a lot of  something I usually share it.  They sell or trade, but seldom  give. It's ok, but I doubt their  sincerity.  Sad.  Dear Sad,  Well there are so many  differences without religion, I  don't think religion mikes the  difference. Some people are  happy by sharing, others Just get  no kick from throwing bread on  the waters. I think all the good  you do warms your own heart  too, and I believe your example  spurs your friends to exchange  favours. Not all perhaps, but  some.  Dear Ann,  I can't believe the people that  go to the beach. They are in a  state of undress that reveals all.  Most of the time it would be  better to cover up what they are  showing. Can't they tell they  aren't that good looking? I find  it funny or annoying.  Needing Dark Glasses.  Dear Needing,  Maybe you do. I have just the  opposite feeling, the body is a  wonderful mechanism doing our  bidding. I think it's physically  and mentally healthy to blend  body and mind with the sea, sky  and air. The vitamin D from the  sun is beneficial and if everyone  swam and took in sun all their  life I think they'd be happier and  healthier. Anytime you can just  enjoy being alive, I'm for it. Salt  water and sunshine are very  beneficial to one's skin. The  exercise more so. Just wear sun  screen and appreciate a body  that does so many things for us,  even if not a standard beautiful  model.  Dear Ann,  When the person you are in  love with is often away for  extended periods, is it unnatural to want to go out with  others in the meantime? I get so  lonely at times and feel I'm  sitting life out. I don't wish to  harm our relationship but, I  like to be with people, go to  parties and dances.  Part-time Lover.  Dear Part-time Lover,  Sure, why not. If you go alone  and come home alone. I can't see  that it will harm your romance.  If you fill in with someone else  and you're steady finds out, be  prepared for a breakup, few  people   are   big   enough   to  overlook a stand-in.  Dear Ann,  I am so annoyed at my dear  husband. He has to be  reminded to brush his teeth and  shave. It's as though he forgets  his appearance. He takes a bath  thank heavens, changes  clothes, but leaves out the  finishing touches.. What to do?  Weary.  Dear Weary,  Maybe he is too. That's  usually the case; one gets too  hot to care. With some people,  grooming and hygiene are  automatic. With others they  need a reminder. At least you  don't have to get in the tub and  lure him in as some women I  know  do.  Pleasantly remind  him���provide  nice  shaving  cream and have everything in  sight or easy reach.  Dear Ann,  My sweetheart is a very  untidy housekeeper. She leaves  things around and ignores the  dust. I want to marry her but  wonder if she'll improve and  with a child she could leave  some un-pleasant things lying  about. What do you think?  Worried.  Dear Worried,  I see what you mean. If she  has her things hanging about and  the dust is thick, perhaps she'll  leave smelly diapers around and  have even less time to do  housework. Well, resolve to get a  hit nf Mn in or do some work  Coast News, August  yourself. Some people are slow  and disorganized. I can't see  much change possible.  Sorry.  Dear Ann,  My friends gave me a  surprise party. I feel quilty  because I wasn't grateful. I am  to be married soon. I was  shopping and out all day. I  hadn't been home long when  here they all came, dressed up,  which I wasn't. I felt really bad  my hair wasn't done. I had on a  nondescript dress for shopping,  felt hot and tired���certainly off  balance��� my apartment  wasn't that tidy, so my  enjoyment of the evening was  dimmed by the surprise of it all.  28,1979 11.  More like shock. What should I  have done?  Unready.  Dear Unready,  I sympathize, it's nice to put  our best foot and appearance  forward, but being gracious is  more important. You could  sneak away and brush your hair  and freshen your make-up, or  even slip into something more  dressy, but I know it's  distressing not to be showered  and the house in order, flowers,  and really ready. Surprise  parties are usually planned in  away that the person dresses up  for a show or dinner out, where  just about to leave, the party  descends or takes the person lu  someone elses house which is  kinder.

Coast News, August 28,1979  On becoming a Rover  Ramblings of a Rover  by Dee Cee  If I live to be as old as  Methuselah I shall never forget  the last day at school. On any  ordinary day it was the custom  for all the pupils to line up in  lhc square facing the front  doors just as the church clock,  adjacent to thc Henry Wright's  Grammar School, started  striking the hour of 9:00 a.m.  At the last stroke our  headmaster, the Very Rev.  Teller, would appear clad in his  black gown and then, doffing  his morlar-board, he would say  "Goodmorning gentlemen".  At which we boys would then in  turn doff our caps and in  unison respond "Good-  morning Sir". Our caps had a  badge with thc F. Coat of Arms  on it, (ihree silver lions on a red  shield). The smaller boys in the  front row wore blue jerseys  while tile bigger boys in either  blue blazers or heavier jackets,  il it was winter time, stood at  attention in the back rows,  lined up behind us were the  teachers or masters as we called  them. Usually our headmaster  would then turn smartly and  lead the procession into the  main hall where we assembled  lor morning prayers before  dispersing to our various  classes.  This particular morning  there was a departure from the  norm. Our headmaster gave a  short speech in which he  reminded us that for some of us  (including me) this would be  ihe very last time we would  assemble in such fashion and he  hoped we would remember the  old school and the precepts that  it had taught. It was not what  hc said that was so impressive it  was thc way he said it. Up to  thai moment all of us boys, I  am certain, shared a common  opinion of him. To us he was a  cold forbidding martinet and,  although I would not go so far  as to say we hated him, we  certainly feared him. Now in  some gifted way he, in a few  short sentences, revealed a side  of him we had never even  suspected. He was essentially a  warm, friendly old man with a  strong and abiding interest in  "his" boys and it was so  obvious that 1 honestly say I  felt ashamed and guilty to have  misjudged him so thoughtlessly.  After our morning prayer the '  certificates were handed out.  Each of us, as our name was  called, then hadtogoouttothe  front and receive our diploma  (if you could call it that) from  our headmaster, returning to  our scats amidst the dutiful  applause of our schoolmates.  Next came the leave taking  and farewells to all the  teachers. I actually shook  hands with Mr. Miller, the  math professor whom I  detested, and the icy Miss Pym,  who had force-fed me enough  history to enable me to receive  a credit in that subject. Next it  was a greeting from old Bill P.  the Latin master. I think the  pubs must have opened a little  earlier on that auspicious day  as he appeared to be in a rosy  glow and gave off a beery  aroma that could only be  associated with either  Shepherd Neame or Rigdens  breweries. When it came time  to say goodbye to Susan 1  almost broke down, I was so  overcome at the thought of  possibly never seeing her again.  Whether she suspected my  feelings towards her I will never  know but, unlike the other  boys' short friendly handshake,  I am certain she held my hand  for a considerably longer time  while the gaze from her limpid  blue eyes almost melted me and  all the old desperate yearnings  returned. 1 longed to take her  into my arms in a passionate  embrace and never let her go!  I do hope sincerely that she  married the lawyer, had a  beautiful relationship with  him, raised many children and  lived a long and happy life.  Somehow the highly  emotional morning passed and  it was home for lunch. My  parents were, of course, pleased  and proud of me as was only  natural. Mother had made one  of my favourite dishes-  Cornish pasties���and I think I  ate three of them, breaking my  rules about pastry being  unsuitable for anyone "in  training". There was one left  over and when I announced  that I thought I would go  fishing over Nagden Marshes  and intended to be home late  she carefully packed it, along  with two hardboilcd eggs, into  my lunch bag with a bottle of  Stone's Ginger Beer to wash it  down. What a wonderful  Mother I had. She always knew  all the things I liked best and  saw that I, her youngest boy,  got them if it was at all possible  at the time.  About the only other thing I  remember about that eventful  day was that I caught the  biggest eel I had ever taken to  date. It was nearly dusk and I  had caught several roach and  had them in my carry-all on the  front of my bicycle when there  came this tug on the line and it  proved to be a monster of an  eel, over four feet long and  nearly as thick as my wrist. Was  I ever excited! I got him and  thought how pleased my  Mother would be as none of the  family would eat the roach or  tench I usually caught. They  claimed they were full of bones  and tasted muddy. In fact my  Mother refused to cook them at  all so I had to do it myself.  Whether I made a good job of it  I don't really know but after I  had fried them brown and crisp  I smothered them in H.P. sauce  and, to me, they tasted  delicious.  It was decided that I should  spend a week or two down at  Acton farm now that I had  finished my schooling and  make plans for my future. I  knew my father, who was  getting on in years, wanted me  to enter the grocery business  along with my brother George,  who was already in the shop as  was my sister Jennie, who took  care of the books in the office,  but I had other ideas. For one  thing I knew that as far as being  a partner with George was  concerned it would never work  out. He was my brother and I  would never say that I hated  him but he and I had had many  differences. He thought, and so  did my father, that he was a  smart businessman but I  thought him a stupid clod  because he had never gone very  far in school. Another thing  was that he was nearly three  years older than I and, over the  years, being bigger physically if  not mentally, he had always  1   ' hr*  A  :-^i. :���'.-..*���  ���'VI.'

I wouldn't like to  say my father favoured him but  it appeared to me Geroge could  always go where he wanted, do  what he wanted, and his  decisions were accepted by Dad  if not by my mother and sister.  I imagine it was a simple thing,  sibling rivalry, but at the time I  couldn't see why he should  have a motorcycle while my  request for one was turned  down, why he could stay out  late at night while I was  supposed to be home by 10:00  p.m. (I very rarely was) and so  on and on. No, my entering the  shop with him would end in  disaster as I realized only too  well.  Another thing was I had no  intention of spending my life in  the little town of F. It was, or so  I thought, and I was only  sixteen going on seventeen,  already getting too small to  contain a boy like me with my  wild and extravagant ideas.  The world was a large and  wonderful place. It was my  oyster and damned if I was  going to be held down in a  small corner of Kent. There  were too many exciting things  to experience and the only way  I could get really started was to  go to sea as my oldest brother  Alec had. That was the answer  as far as I was concerned but  how to overcome my father's  opposition was something I  had not yet worked out.  Perhaps a few days at Acton  would do me good and, who  knows, a solution to my  problems would miraculously  appear!  Lightning starts  Ruby Lake fire  Two lightning strikes started  a small forest fire at Ruby Lake  on the morning of August 22.  A five-man crew from the  Pender Harbour Forest Service  and four tankers loaded with  Phoschek,   fire   retardant,  brought the quarter-acre fire  under control that same day  but remained on the scene  Saturday for mopping up  operations.
