In a  meeting held in the United Chinch Hall members of the Co-op  met to vote on an extraordinary resolution presented to their  board of directors that the Co-operative Association seek  voluntary liquidation.  After a presentation from representatives of Federated Cooperatives Limited and Co-op accountant Leo O'Neill the  membership narrowly failed to vote the extraordinary resolution  through. The vote was so close that at the time of the meeting it  was felt that it had carried and most of the members present left  the Church Hall under the impression that the Elphinstone Cooperative had been voted out of existence.  According to the consitution of the Cooperative Association a  vote of seventy-five per cent of the membership is required to pass  an extraordinary resolution. Ofte hundred and nine members  voted. Eighty-seven voted to support the resolution, 27 voted to  defeat it, and there was one spoiled ballot. If the spoiled ballot was  counted as representing a voting member present the resolution  failed with a percentage of 74.3 per cent. If only the unspoiled  ballots counted, it passed with a percentage of 75.2 per cent.  Initially Acting Chairman Eric Inglis ruled that the motion had  passed. Next morning the representatives from Federated Cooperatives Limited checked with legal opinion in Victoria and  discovered in fact that the resolution had failed.

Council deals with basic issues  by George Cooper  "I represent the seven lot holders on Burns Road that don't have  the sewer line yet," Benoit Lepage told Village council at the  August 28 meeting, "and we note the lines are all around our street  but for some unknown reason ours has been left out."  "How many of those lots are vacant?" asked Alderman  Marshall.  "Five," replied Lepage, "but two owners have said they would  be building as soon as the line is in. That's very low ground there  and the septic tank at my dad's house has required pumping out  three times this year on account of seepage of ground water."  Council discussion disclosed there are some funds available and  the matter was referred to the public works committee to report  on the cost and the crew time available for the job at this time,  Dayton and Knight presented a detailed estimate of the North  Road construction cost���the portion between Highway 101 and  Reed Road. The total cost is $336,000 and of this roadwork,  excavating and removing unsuitable material, levelling, and  gravel and asphalt costs $179,000. Storm sewers and other pipe  work cost $78,700 and engineering and contingencies $77,400.  Other correspondence included notice that H.O, Hind  nck?H rrni  applied for road access across District Lot 1314 which is a village  v.atershed area. Council felt temporary access only was  acceptable in this area which is adjacent to the Village reservoir lot  on Henry Road.  Council received a report of the Board of Variance meeting of  August 27, at which an appeal from Mrs. M. Volen of Glen Road  was heard. The Volens had appealed a stop-work order on the  construction of their new home because the footings did not allow  for the required set-back. The Volens appealed to the board on the  grounds of hardship; first, that the approved plan would obstruct  their neighbour's view, second that the contractor advised the  carport would be useless if built to approved plan specifications,  and that extra expenditure would be required. When the board  chairman asked why they had accepted their drawings back from  the building inspector and had then proceeded to build contrary  to the siting in those plans, Mrs. Volen replied that the plans had  mistakenly ended up with their electrician but that they were  wrong in changing the siting in the approved plans.  The board concluded that this matter did not show a hardship  caused by the bylaw but rather a hardship caused by the appellant  through ignoring bylaw requirements. The board suggested the  only recourse is to seek an amendment of the bylaw setback  Mariners' Rest".  The Reverend J.D. Parker,  Senior Chaplin to The Mission  To Seamen officiated at the  ceremony which deeded "The  Mariners' Rest" as an official  burial ground for seafarers and  their relatives.  Tom Penfold of Penfold  Marine, Captain Len Higgs,  Captain W.Y. Higgs (the  originator of the concept),  Margaret and Captain Jim  Foster representing Rivtow  Straits, Captain Art MePhee,  ex-navy, Captain Gerry  WiUlams, Captain BIU Dolmage  and Captain Graham Smith  from the Company of Master  Mariners sailed from Gibsons on  the "Gambler Scout'to meet up  with the dedication party and  Captain Allan Cabot the  National Secretary of the  Company of Master Mariners of  Canada on the Seaspan tug the  "Seaspan Pacer".  After the dedication ceremony,  the first official burials were  carried out. Ihe ashes of Mrs.  Edna Rumsey, the late wife of  Captain Patrick Rumsay, and  those of Captain J. Tholhunt  were scattered on the ocean  adjacent to "The Mariners'  Rest".  Captain W.Y. Higgs spoke to  the memories of the 31 who had  been buried near this spot prior  to the ceremony, amongst them,  his brother Captain Thomas  Higgs, son Captain Jeffry Higgs  and daughter Sylvia Chataway,  and to the two buried on the day.  "The Mariners' Rest* is the  only official burial marker in the  waters of B.C. and is sanctioned  by the provincial government.  Oops!  Young Carla Paetkau  points out through the mail this  week an error in the recent  Back to School insert we  circulated a couple of weeks  ago. The back page had a  couple of kids walking up the  path towards their school and  the caption read: "They deserve  a future". So far, so good.  Unfortunately as the sharp-  eyed Carla pointed out the flag  flying above the school was an  American flag. Thank you  Carla. It is not the kind of  future we had in mind.  liquidation." Reid said that an  attempt could be made to sell  the store as is or the building  and land could be sold and then  leased from a prospective  buyer.  Director Don Pearsell urged  the members to consider  continuing with a Direct  Charge Co-op. He said that  such an organization was  functioning extremely well in  the Hub Co-op in Nanaimo.  "We have a building worth  $200,000," said Pearsell. "That  is more than enough to take  care of our liabilities."  The principal creditor  involved is Federated Cooperatives Ltd. Representatives from the parent  association were quite clearly  in support of voluntary  liquidation at the present time.  Regional   Manager   Ray  Johnson said, "Federated Coops will put this business into  receivership if you defeat this  motion."  Co-op Accountant O'Neill  listed assets, apart from the  fixed assets of building and  land, on a chalk board along  with total liabilities. The board  showed that there were assets  current of $72,000 and  investment assets of $15,000.  Liabilities were shown as  $159,000 to Federated Co-op,  $46,000 to the bank and $4,000  on equipment.  "Put it on the board so we  can add it up," said retired  Coast News editor Fred Cruice,  referring to the value of the  building and land but when the  meeting ended the Co-op's  most important asset had still  not been listed.  The principal argument of  the Federated Co-op representatives was that the best months  of the year had gone by and  $4,700 had been lost in the  summer months. Co-op  employees pointed out that  after a series of months in  which the Co-op sales were  down from 1978 they had  equalled the previous year  during June and surpassed it by  $3,000 in July. "We felt we were  just turning the corner," said a  spokesman after the meeting.  The situation remains  unresolved though it is  understood that Federated Cooperatives Ltd. will seek to put  the company into receivership.  After the meeting there was  considerable criticism from the  employees about the advice  that had been forthcoming  from the parent organization  during the last few years.  Don Pearsell, Noel Reid and  Rick Gamache, argued that  there were alternatives that  should be considered.  Director Noel Reid, himself  an accountant, speaking  against the motion said, "I am  not blind to the fact that we  have problems, but we have  viable   alternatives   to  Ray Chamberlin collects the votes during the crucial balloting on the future of the  Elphinstone Co-op last week.  Workshop meeting  on power line  A "workshop" meeting will  be held at the Sunshine Coast  Regional District offices in  Sechelt September 6 at 4 p.m.  to discuss alternate routes for  the proposed 500 kv Cheekye  -Dunsmuir Hydro line.  Representatives from  Hydro, ELUC (Environment  and Land Use Committee) and  the Cheekye-Dunsmuir  Coalition will sit down to  review the alternate route  proposed by Sakinaw Lake  Cabin and Lease Holders in  July, as well as new routes.  "The meeting is not a  substitute for a public hearing.  Environment Minister Rafe  Mair has said he will put the  public hearing request to  Cabinet on September 10 when  ELUC meets," President of the  Pender Harbour Ratepayers'  Association Joe Harrison said  in a recent interview.  "I expect they will take some  30 seconds on it and then go  about their business," MLA  Don Lockstead said when  asked about the request.  Work began on the Cheekye-  Dunsmuir line in the Sechelt  Inlet this spring. Surveys,  slashings and a substation road  have been started.  "We are more than ever  adamantly opposed to  construction of the line, . . .  environmentally and economically disastrous," stated  Howard White, secretary of the  Pender Harbour Ratepayer's  Association.  "In spite of government  urgings to give up we still have  to reaffirm our position that no  route is acceptable," he said.  Brian Gates, acting assistant  director in charge of special  projects unit of the ELUC  Secretariat, (civil servant arm  of the Cabint minister  organization of ELUC) will be  in attendance at the September  6 meeting to "listen to B.C.  Hydro and the people " then  take back "facts and feelings" to  Cabinet committee.  Gates will pass on a briefing  note to the committee  following the meetino.  B.C. Hydro will be  discussing their findings in a  report released two weeks ago  regarding the northern route  proposed on July 23 by  Sakinaw Lake representatives.  The route proposed would  go on the west side of the  Sechelt Inlet to Earl's Cove  passing on its way near Klein  Lake and North Lake to  Nelson Island running close to  existing power lines then to the  south side of West Lake. From  there the line would go on to  Cape Coburn underwater to  Texada Island and finally,  underwater to Dunsmuir on  Vancouver Island.  The report released by  Hydro calls the Sakinaw Lake  northern route "unfeasible".  Because of special grounding  conditions required, Hydro  says the location of the  substation can't be changed  now. "We dispute that." Joe  Please turn to page nhw  Hydro protest  on Texada  Carl Rising-Moore, a member of the group that travelled to  Victoria for a demonstration on the steps of the Legislature on  July 19 to protest the proposed Cheekye-Dunsmui line, has  written a full statement of confession for his actions on the  weekend of August 15.  Rising-Moore pulled approximately 50 stakes set by Hydro  survey crews on a road allowance right-of-way on Texada Island.  He then deposited the stakes at the Powell River Hydro office.  According to Constable G McMasier of Powell River, charges  have not been laid but B.C. Hydro security will probably initiate  charges.  A second occurrence of stake pulling occurred the following  weekend on the island and is still under investigation.  The stakes, although not part of thc Texada Island cross-over  for the 500 kv Cheekye-Dunsmuir line were, "probably not  directly involved with the line but indirectly, yes," said Constable  McMasters handling the incident.  Van Egmond  to the rescue  Village property- Sechelt  After rejecting Shorncliffe Developments Ltd. bid of $200,000  plus rezoning of Block 7 for the purchase of Joint Facility  property, Sechelt Council has acquired I 1/4 acres for future  housing of Village, regional and school board offices.  The new Joint Facility will be located on Porpoise Road next to  the sewage treatment plant and Sechelt Marsh.  Council brought an original bid of $60,000 from owner Len  Van Egmont down to $55,000. The Village will now pave Porpoise  Road as part of their arrangement with Van Egmont.  "If we had developed thc property we would have been  responsible for paving anyway,"Clcrk-Treasurer Malcom Shanks  explained.  Van Egmont is also owner of property fronting the opposite  side of Porpoise Road which is set for development.  If all goes according to plan, construction could begin as early  as mid October.  sMaaBaaBaaB************************-'''''''''''.*'''^  For 35 years the most widely read Sunshine Coast newspaper!| 2.

The Elphinstone Cooperative Association, founded in Gibsons  in 1917 and the second oldest Co-op in the  province, is not dead yet but judging from  the events of last week its demise seems  imminent.  What can a bystander at the deathbed of  an institution say? Very little, perhaps, but  there were a couple of disquieting aspects  to the scene that must in all honesty be  noted. To begin with, it had begun to  appear that the arrival of hardworking new  manager Robbie Robertson a few months  ago augured well for the old store. There  was a feeling of vitality, of coming to grips  with the problems that had been missing  over the past couple of years. Yet there  were the representatives from head office  obviously intent on closing the store down.  If threatening bankruptcy is not an  attempt to influence a vote on voluntary  liquidation what is it? Is this the role the  Federated Co-operatives Ltd. sees for  itself?  Secondly, and sadly, it must be observed  that an impression was left that there was a  failure of spirit and of co-operation on the  directorship itself. It seemed to at least one  observer that the majority directorship  vote to liquidate was in some respects the  vote of tired men who neither wanted to  fight on nor to relinquish the reins of the  Co-op to ready and willing hands beside  them.  It is insupportable in a democratic  meeting for valid and pertinent  information to be downplayed to effect a  desired result. The failure, no, the refusal  of those in charge to list the most valuable  fixed asset of building and land left the  unfortunate impression that what was  sought was not a democratic decision but a  rubber-stamped agreement. It was not in  keeping with democratic principles nor the  principles of the co-operative movement  and cast some shadow over the meeting  even before the recorded vote left the  association hanging awkwardly between  dissolution and existence.  A ninety year old lady wrote a letter to  ths editor of the Coast News last week in  which she called for a fight to save the old  Co-op. It was taken from our office to be  read to the meeting. It was not. It is the  regrettable feeling here that if spirit such as  hers had been shown by the leadership of  the Co-op and the representatives from  head office then the meeting would have  voted over-whelmingly to continue.  Public park of value  It is to be hoped that the proposal that  the top section of Cliff Gilker Park be  turned over to the Sunshine Coast Golf  and Country Club will be very carefully  considered before being accepted. As  Harry Almond pointed out when the  proposal was presented, Cliff Gilker Park  is a wilderness park. It is also true that the  section sought by the golf club is the most  scenically magnificent in the park and that  for solitude seekers it is necessary to be in  that section before the omnipresent sound  of traffic can be obliterated.  The park is used by families, by parents  and children, and it will be regrettable if  the golfers improve their facilities at the  expense of the young for whom there is all  too little provision made already on the  Sunshine Coast.  We are sure that the golf club executive  has. explored other possibilities for  expansion but if difficulties present  themselves otherwhere the presence of the  adjacent public park should not be seen as  a ready-made solution.  The tragedy in Ireland  The recent assassination of Lord  Mountbatten, cousin to the Queen and war  hero extraordinaire, has brought the  ongoing tragedy in Ireland into public  focus again. The mindless hatred and  violence are greatly lo be deplored whether  the assassinated is famous and well-born  or not.  That the tale of murder that is being  written in Ireland is being perpetrated  partially in the name of various factions of  the Christian religion lends a savage irony  to the proceedings. That such religious  leaders as the Rev. Ian Paisley of Northern  Ireland are in the forefront of the call to  violence does a disservice to the Christian  ethic which cannot be overstated.  We must remember, however, that the  tragedy in Ireland is a legacy of British  colonialism, that wherever the British  ruled in the world with their divide and rule  methods they left a legacy of hatred. It is  true between the Moslems and Hindus in  India, between the East Indians and the  Negro population in the Caribbean and  between the Protestant North and Catholic  South in Ireland. The tactic of making a  minority the ruling group was always  employed by the British Imperialists and  everywhere left a legacy of hatred and  bloodshed of which Ireland is but one  example.  from the files of Coast Mews  FIVE YEARS AGO  Mr. and Mrs. Harry J.

I just can't help myself. I mean  it does seem to me that the  absolute in absurdity has been  achieved in our lifetime and an  absolute is, something to be  remarked Upon however it  manifests itself.  Never again in the future  history of the wprld and surely  never in the past can an  example of absurdity outdo  what is currently being revealed  in this country.  I speak of the petroleum  industry, of the Canadian  nation, and poor feckless Joe  Clark.  The revelation in the Calgary  newspapers that in effect the  Canadian taxpayer is  contributing 120% of the  expense of drilling for oil in the  Arctic is absolutely staggering.  We pay Dome Petroleum to  drill in Canadian waters ���  naturally and perhaps it should  go without saying that Dome  Petroleum is a multi-national  corporation which is American  owned ��� and if the drilling is  successful with all expenses  paid by you and me they get to  . keep the oil and we get to buy it  from them.  Now, if that isn't enough to  rot your socks we have the joy  of contemplating a federal  government which was elected  insisting it would rid of the  Canadian-owned oil company  and replace it with added tax  incentives to private industry.  Added tax incentives! We're  already paying the whole shot  and then some and Joe Clark  and his fatuous band are  proposing to give them more of  our money to facilitate the loss  of our oil. Is this sane? Can it be  justified by any rational  process known to man?  Canadians, we are paying all  the costs and Dome Petroleum  is going to get all the oil. Is  there a devotee of free  enterprise on the grand scale  who would be kind enough to  justify this monumental  absurdity?  It has been pointed out to us  quite clearly that we could  spend the same amount of  money in Petrocan and own the  oil afterwards. Let's have less  of this claptrap about  government inefficiency. This  government and its predecessor  have been superbly efficient at  turning the whole country over  into foreign hands without as  much as a voice being raised in  anger.  It's not entirely a new  preoccupation    of   mine.   I  probably got my first vision of  the 'development of Canada' in  the ghost town of Dawson City.  Even in the mid sixties, and  almost certainly today, non-  nationals were digging gold out  of the ground and for the price  of gas for their bulldozers and  groceries for their imported  non-national employees were  shipping hundreds of  thousands of dollars out of the  country every fall. It's a give  away and it is not reciprocal.  Do you imagine Canadians can  mine American gold and bring  it home? Don't be ridiculous.  It's illegal for a Canadian to dip  a goldpan in an Alaskan creek.  What Canadians have to do  is realize that there is a worldwide poker game going on and  that they hold in their valuable  resources some very powerful  cards. We are not advocating  any kind of'ism'. We are saying  for God's sake Canada sit  down at the table and play your  cards. Whether it's fish or oil or  coal or what have you - bargain,  bargain! Look to simple self-  interest. As things go at the  present this entire country is in  danger of becoming - if it hasn't  already completed the  transformation - an historic  joke.  Let's make no mistake about  it, the end is in sight for Canada  unless some simple common  sense can enter into the picture.  Meanwhile we have national  magazines proclaiming that  two thirds of Canadians are in  favour of free trade with the  Americans which is akin to  Faye Wray winking seductively  at King Kong and the monthly  newsletter from the Royal  Bank of Canada is fatuously  assuring us that there can't be  much wrong with the people  who invented baseball. The  mind boggles, lurches and reels  to a complete stop.  Would your local grocer give  his customers more than  enough money to buy out his  entire store and then happily  watch them clean the shelves? If  he even though about it an  associate would have him  certified immediately and yet  on the national scene that's  exactly what we are doing.  This is not an anti-American  tirade. If you offer a jeweller  the Crown jewels and pay him  in advance so that the moving  of them will cost him nothing  who is to blame the jeweller if  he accepts? What people would  refuse the kind of deal that  Canada is giving the oil  companies if were offered to  them.  Meanwhile poor Joe Clark is  all for increasing the incentives  as if absolutely risk-free control  of Canada's oil were not  incentive enough. Would  someone please tell me if I have  gone mad ? What kind of Alice  in Wonderland thinking is  going on in this country?  Last week I wrote about a  new kind of university, a  television classroom where you  could not only learn long  distance but could talk back to  your teacher. This week, a few  words about another new  university in the Province.  Trinity Western College,  formerly a non-degree granting  institution in the Fraser Valley  was turned into a full fledged  university by an act of the B.C.  Legislature on July 31.  Trinity Western College in  Langley refers to itself as a  Christian Liberal Arts College  and while it is not exactly Bible  Billy's kill-a-commie-for-  Christ college, it contains  enough Christian, evangelical  dogma tp make the use of the  word "liberal" questionable.  The instructors for example  must sign a 12 point  which  includes a belief in original sin,  water baptism and "everlasting  conscious punishment".  I remember in Sunday  School how silly we though  Esau was when he gave away  his birthright for a mess of "slaVemern'of��Fai'th  potage. We have refined the  process in Canada. We buy and  cook the potage, feed it to the  multi-national corporations  then we give them our  birthright too and wash the  dishes behind them and call it  doing business.  Where is the sanity in this?  The entire nation should be put  immediately into straight  jackets, but perhaps there is no  need. Perhaps we are sedated to  the point where further  restriction is entirely  unnecessary.  Now those are fine,  traditional beliefs, if you  happen to be a born again  Christian, or any other kind of  Christian for that matter, but  they are also beliefs that have  been at the heart of intolerance  and narrow thinking for  centuries. To me, the word  "liberal" has always implied  tolerance, open mindedness  and a spirit of free enquiry,  AND DEATH SHALL HAVE NO DOMINION  And death shall have no dominion.  Dead men naked they shall be one  With the man in the wind and the west moon;  When their bones are picked clean and the clean bones  gone,  They shall have stars at elbow and foot;  Though they go mad they shall be sane,  Though they sink through the sea they shall rise again;  Though lovers be lost love shall not;  And death shall have no dominion.  And death shall have no dominion.  Under the windings of the sea  They lying long shall not die wlndlly;  Twisting dn racks when sinews give way,  Strapped to a wheel, yet they shall not break;  Faith In their hands shall snap in two,  And the unicorn evils run them through;  Split all ends up they shan't crack;  And death shall have no dominion.  And death shall have no dominion.  No more may gulls cry at their ears  Or waves break loudon theseashores;  Where blew a flower may a flower no more  Lift its head to the blows ot the rain;  Though they be mad and dead as nails,  Heads of the characters hammer through daisies;  Break In the sun till the sun breaks down,  And death shall have no dominion.  Dylan Thomas  while phrases like "original  sin" and "everlasting conscious  punishment" have had  overtones which are frankly  anti-intellectual.  Let's take the idea of original  sin for instance. My  understanding of that idea is  that because of Adam's sin in  the garden of Eden, all  mankind hence-forth was born  in sin, guilt and wickedness and  the task of Christian  civilization is always to  eradicate that sin in man. In  otherwords, people have to be  taught how to be good. The  opposing view of course is that  we are brought into the world  without sin and guilt and that  evil results from exposure to  wickedness in the world.  I've had one or two teachers  in my time who knew the  second I walked into their  classroom that I was sinfull as  hell, and they usually spent a  great deal of time reminding me  of that fact. But, if I had a  choice, and I didn't, I would  have stayed clear of those  people and spent my time in  classrooms where the teacher  knew I was basically good,  decent and honest.  To get back to the subject,  Trinity Western College, I  guess they can call themselves  any damn thing they like.but to  associate the three major  universities in the province  with a 500 student Bible school  seems to be a great disservice to  those universities. A university  ought to be a place in which all  human experience, all human  knowledge and all human  endeavor can be studied,  examined and expanded upon  in a spirit of free and open  enquiry. At a college that  demands a belief in water  baptism and "everlasting  concious punishment", how  free and open could an enquiry  be into Karl Marx, Voltaire,  Montaigne, Sigmund Freud,  Darwin, Islam or Buddhism?  How free would a student feel  to challenge the theory of  creation, the Bible, the  historical development of  Christianity or the notion of  everlasting life?  This is not to say that Bible  colleges do not offer good  programs or have high  academic standards. It has  been claimed in fact that  Trinity Western has very high  standards, that the training the  students receive is of good  quality and that the courses  offered are extremely  demanding. The same could be  said of many other institutes  that offer instruction from a  very narrow perspective.

Coast News, September 4,1979  Frankie's Ticket  Part V  The setting is quite sniall  and. once past the overhang,  the logs ride into the tree with  little trouble. It is a genuine  relief to have a partner who  knows which way is up. I  almost forget that we are still  working with a skeleton crew.  Carmody is theoretically  supposed to be hooktending  both machines in keeping with  the curious economics of this  outfit but he seldom comes  back to the cold-decker. I  determine to ask for a higher  rate when I gain a surer mastery  nl the jiib since I'm doing half  his work anyhow.  Despite our short-handed  situation, the yarding  progresses easily. In a little over  Iwo weeks, Perce and I are  hooking up thc final logs on the  lust road. I feel a certain  satisfaction, tinged with some  apprehension. We will be  working directly with Carmody  for the next few days. I hope my  inexperience won't trip me up.  That night I worry  somemore about the tasks that  must be dealt with next. Up to  this point, I have been involved  solely   with   the   business   of  Pages  from a Life-Log  Peter Trower  pulling logs from the bush, a  relatively simple proposition  when conditions are halfway  sound. Tomorrow however, we  have to hang a skyline between  our tree and the trackside, then  move the donkey some distance  to the next setting over what  looks like some pretty nasty  terrain. It has been several  years since I last worked on a  machine move and then I was a  whistle-punk and not paying  much attention. I can't recall  exactly what a rigging-slingcr's  duties arc supposed to be  during the operation. I'll just  have to play it by ear.  The following morning we  hook onto the cold-decker.  From here it must be pulled  through a jack on the spar-tree  and the end shackled to a  stump some distance behind  the donkey. Carmody sends me  back to notch the stump in  question while he and the  others string line and hang the  jack. The stump is an  enormous, twisty-grained fir  tough as teak.

Finally, I have  a ragged notch that looks wide  and deep enough to accomodate the massive cable. The  skyline comes punching stiffly  back through the saplings to a  block about twelve feet behind  the fir. I unhook the haulback,  the others join me, we wrestle  the end around the stump and  secure it with a bull-shackle.  Since it will be tightened from  the trackside end our job is  done. I had originally  anticipated a few easy days  swinging the pile but evidently  old Hot Dog and the other  rigging-crew are going to do  this. Carmody seems in some  desperate hurry to get to the  next setting and start cold-  decking once more. Vic figures  they must be behind on the  quota.  Now comes the onerous  business of moving the donkey.  We cut loose the tie-up lines,  hang a moving block on our  first tail-hold stump and  commence. Things go badly  from almost the start. I figure I  should be able to bluff it  through if I really concentrate  but I'm not totally clear on all  the angles and Carmody is  really pushing it. The ground is  extremely rough and the  stumps are numerous. We  constantly have to change our  holds to avoid one obstacle or  another. Carmody is definitely  not a patient man. He charges  about, shouting orders and  looking more like Cagney than  ever but I no longer find the  resemblance even slightly  amusing since much of the  shouting is directed at me. I  might have been able to fake it  out with a man of milder  temperament but Carmody's  hot-headed outbursts get me  rattled and I start making  mistakes and false moves.  None of my blunders are  particularly serious ones but  they slow things up a bit, I  suppose, and the  hooktender takes due note of  them. It is an ordeal all the way  and my nerves and confidence  are both shot by the time we  finally reach the new setting.  Luckily, the weekend  intervenes at this point and I  am able to relax for a bit. That  Sunday, a new man flies into  camp. I don't pay much  attention beyond noting that he  is tall, bald and somewhere  around forty. He comes out  with us to the cold-decker on  Monday morning however and  I begin to get an ominous  feeling. Finally I break down  and ask the guy what he's been  hired to do. "Oh, I'm the new  rigging-slinger," he says  matter-of-factly. That  sonofabitch Carmody has  replaced me without saying a  word!  There is no way out of the  humiliating situation except to  quit. I am as much hurt as  embarrassed. After all those  weeks of slugging it out short-  handed, the bastard owed me a  little better than this. Vic has  had enough of Ox River too���  "Bunch of cheapskate gyppo  creeps!"���and we fly out  together,  "Dammit," I say as the plane  guns towards Campbell River,  "I think I must have picked up  some of Frankie's bum luck  with that hiring-slip."  "Guess you just might have  at that," says Vic. "But what the  hell, there's plenty more camps  on this damn coast!"  And our conversation turns  to booze, broads and bright  lights.

Arts review  by Joan Huestis Foster  A vivid and imaginative  collection of works from  Vancouver is now on display at  the new Sunshine Coast Fine  Arts Centre in Sechelt. Many  Sunshine Coasters who have  become comfortable with our  ubiquitous local seagull and  beach scenes will be unsettled  by the lively irreverence of this  spirited exhibition.  Summer Suit by Cecelia Ohm  deserves a spot of its own  almost anywhere. It is a small  painting of a carefully dressed  man whose head is a bunch of  red flowers. Bent Space is a pen  drawing by Catherine  MacTavish of her bedroom  where the patterned flooring  reverses itself and zings back  out at the viewer, A tense and  misty Bride and Her Father by  Salmon Harris is fearless and  fearful at the same time. Awake  #1 by Bill Featherstone is  harsh, flat and honest. Gary  Lee Novas' study in dimension  is playing a game with  perspective and J. Williams  certainly has some new ideas on  the use of watercolours. There  is a photo-etching called Crazy  Carousel of a Volkswagon by  Irene Smith that I cannot help  but wish she had thought to  stain yellow. Bridge #8 by C.  Hayward is a large sort of  urgent, batik type painting of  beam angles, totally symetrical.  One of the most evocative  and spookiest paintings I have  seen in a long time is the  evocative tragedy The Terminal  City Lawn Bowling Club by  Olga Froelich. It really brought  forth goosebumps and prickled  my scalp. That is reaction. The  action of painting or producing  art is nothing without reaction.  This is a complex show  which has, in many cases,  utilized photography without  trying to imitate it. It is well  worth a trip to Sechelt to think  and feel something about real  creativity and imagination.  There is nothing Deja Vu  about this display and NO���  you will not find anything here  to match your drapes or  carpeting. You may find a  changing thought, a new idea  or some fresh inspiration.  Of course there are the usual  de rigueur, token, sub-art  specimens. These are, usually  intended to shock but after  seeing them for so many years  their effect is rather more  boring that shocking. Perhaps  this lack of emotion was what  the perpetrator intended. One  such is a piece of dirty white on  white screening which I first  saw twenty years ago, another  is a pallid little dangling  something or other behind the  front desk but for the first time  since coming the the Coast I  was able to view eight or nine  art works which are honest,  individually coloured statements of personal thought  processes rather than pretty  drawing room pictures. It is a  rare exhibition, in any city,  where I am enchanted by more  than five paintings. I was at this  one.  It is the function of a  municipal arts centre to inspire  imagination and to provide a  cross section of what is current  in the world of creative art. If  the viewer is unfamiliar with  late twentieth century art  trends this display might  unnerve him but if approached  with an open mind I doubt that  anyone will remain indifferent.

The Full Moon in moody  Pisces opposes the restrictive  Saturn bringing a heavy dose of  the 'blues'. The mysterious  Neptune squares Venus  bringing trickery and deception  to affairs of the heart. Venus  conjoining Saturn empasizes  that unloved feeling. Finally  the violent Mars squares the  ruthless Pluto invoking a series  of shootings and murders.  A few astrologers have  already packed their bags and  are heading for the hills. Others  are predicting a plague or mass  food-poisoning. Some say that  a well-known politician's wife is  about to meet her match.  ARIES (March 21-April 19)  Accent is on frustrating  health and employment  conditions. Run-down feeling  or lack of confidence could be  holding you back. Where you  perform daily tasks is scene of  deceit and disappointments.  Advice is to spend the next two  weeks in bed, alone. Full Moon  position increases worry and  brings bad dreams. Guard  home against fire and  explosions. April 7 birthdays  should avoid arguments.  TAURUS (April 20-May 20)  Social life is the dreariest for  years. Advice is to curtail  pleasures and amusements till  mid-September. Romance  starting now will end with tears  and deception.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21)  Domestic life is a drag for the  next few weeks. Looks like  there's a conflict between  commitment to household  obligations and the desire for  personal success. Search for  happy medium will be tiring.  Meanwhile, it's the wrong time  to start home renovations or  decorating. Don't sign any  land, rental or real-estate  agreements till mid-September.  Dinner party at your place will  be a flop.  CANCER (June 22-July 22)  Expect disappointing  messages from near and far.  Local correspondence, phone-  calls and trips aggravate latest  bout of depression. Realize that  regular companions won't be in  the mood for your casual visits.

VIRGO (Aug.23-Sept.22)  For many of you, the next  two weeks could be the most  difficult period of the year. The  Sun, Mercury and Venus,  poorly aligned with Saturn in  your sign, bring frustrations  and loss of confidence.  Unfortunately, those close to  you will be feeling the strain  and unable to offer much  support. Virgos surviving  upcoming trend should receive  'strength and endurance'  medal; especially those born  around September 10.  LIBRA (Sept.23-Oct.23)  Prepare to find yourself  alone, isolated and having to  face recent wrong moves.  Now's the time to take stock  and analyse true position.

Realize that  lingering health upset may be  linked to prolonged stress. Oct.  11 birthdays should avoid  argument with superior.  SCORPIO (Oct.24-Nov.22)  What you've been aiming at  is now subject to delays beyond  your control. Looks like you'll  have to draw up new list of  objectives, hopes and wishes.  Meanwhile, passing sadness is  linked to the affairs of dear  friend or acquaintance. Those  involved with community or  group activities face heavier  responsibilities. Social life will  be disappointing.  SAGITTARIUS (Nov.23-  Dec.21)  Your career, position or  public standing now becomes  clouded with doubts and  disappointments. Person in  authority may have bad news  regarding your chances of gain  or promotion. A few of you  may simply have to make a  fresh start. Gloomy domestic  conditions reflect present  frustrations. Anyone born  around Dec. 10 receives the  hardest blow.  CAPRICORN (Dec.22- Jan.19)  Personal beliefs and life  philosophy will be tested  during the next few weeks.  Others will expect you to take a  stand regarding controversial  issue. Have ready facts, figures  and proof. Meanwhile, longdistance message or event far  away may be source of anxiety.  It's the wrong time to arrange  educational matters or begin  extended journey. Jan. 8  birthdays may have to fight  with loved one.

PISCES (Feb.I9-Mar.20)  Relations with other people  have never been worse. Full  Moon in your sign finds you  moody, sensitive and prone to  tears. Seems no one understands you. Loved one appears  cold, ruthless and unsympathetic. What a terrible week!  Realize that person closest to  you is probably suffering twice  as much. Pisces born March 4  experiences strongest Full  Moon effects. Bookman's Corner  Arms trade running amok  by John Moore  If you want a good laugh and  a good cry, don't waste your  money or your time pawing  through racks of historical  romances or tearjerk  melodrama. Just go out and get  yourself a copy of the Coronet  paperback edition of Anthony  Sampson's The Arms Bazaar.  Originally published by  Hodder & Stoughton Ltd. in  1977, this book may well be a  prime source for future  historians as they huddle in the  radioative afterglow of  mineshaft and bunker,  composing their accounts of  the events leading up to World  War III. In itself, it is not about  nuclear war. Sampson touches  on the subject to point out that  the nuclear "deterrent", far  from having made conventional weapons obsolete, has if  anything increased their  proliferation. Ihe Arms Bazaar  is the most current detailed  account of that grimmest of all  by-products of the Industrial  Revolution, the arms trade.  The book begins with a  description of the 1973-76  Battle of Beirut, a civil war  which, despite extensive media  coverage, nobody really  understands. There were too  many players on the program;  Lebanese Christian Falangists,  Lebanese Moslems, The  Palestine Liberation Organization, (Lebanon was an  important base for their raids  against Israel), plus divisions of  the regular Syrian and Israelis  armies. The Lebanese were  further divided into factions  and private armies loyal to  individuals, but for the sake of  simplicity (7), call it a five-way  shootout, reminiscent of the  final scenes of Hie Good, The  Bad and The Ugly, with extras.  When the dust settled, the  most modern and cosmopolitan city of the Mideast was a  shattered ruin in which  makeshift bazaars offered an  astonishing variety of  weaponry. One of the most  interesting aspects of the  Conflict was that it shed tight on  an enormous but hitherto  largely unknown variable of  the arms race; the Soviet arms  trade. The "merchants of  death" of the Western world  have been the subject of a  number of well-researched  exposes. George Thayer's The  War Business has even been  used as a manual for  entrepreneurs in the trade, but  the deadly wheelings and  dealings behind the Iron  Curtain have mostly been a  matter* of speculation. The  Lebanese conflict, however,  was carried on, in the beginning  at least, almost exclusively with  Soviet material. That the PLO  was Soviet-armed was common  knowledge, but when the  Christians started shooting  back with the same Kalashni-  kov rifles, heads began to be  scratched.  As it turned out the Soviet  Union had sold the rifles to  Bulgaria, doubtlessly as part of  a diplomatic and economic  exchange to cement "friendly"  relations between allies. But at  the beginning of the Lebanese  conflict the Christians had a  great deal of money and not  enough guns. The Bulgarian  State trading agency, Texim,  weighed the huge potential  profit, (in highly negotiable  foreign currency, no doubt)  against the obvious embarrassment to Moscow and, with the  pragmatism that has character  ized arms-dealers since the 19th  Century, decided to apologize  all the way to the bank. In  doing so they demonstrated  once again what G.B. Shaw  called, in Major Barbara, "the  faith of the Armourer: to give  arms to all men who offer an  honest price for them, without  respect of persons or  principles".  The Lebanese conflict  revealed that Moscow had no  more control over the final  disposition of its lethal exports  than Washington, London, or  Paris. Sampson reveals in  horrifying detail the extent to  which arms have been the hard  currency of diplomacy in this  century. Diplomats looking for  a flat surface on which to sign  their treaties and pacts have  apparently found a case of  rifles or ammunition to be most  convenient for the purpose.  Henry Kissinger, who was  awarded the Nobel Peace Prize  largely on the strength of his  having "brought peace" to the  Mideast, cemented the "Peace"  with an enormous arms deal to  both sides. If settling one  dispute by promising the  combatants bigger and better  tools to destroy each other in  the next round seems ironic, it  is an irony that Alfred Nobel,  the inventor of dynamite, and a  founding father of the modern  arms industry, himself a livelong pacifist, could well  appreciate.  The Arms Bazaar is a  fascinating history of the  modern arms industry,  containing thumbnail biographies of such luminaries as  Sir Basil Zaharoff, the  archetypal early 20th Century  "merchant of death", and Sam  Cummings, the American  independent entrepreneur who  parlayed a few cases of  antiquated rifles into a multi-  million dollar enterprise called  Interarms. But these are the  high-profile small-fry. The  book gets more engrossing as  Sampson unveils the web of  intrique, influence-peddling,  fat "commissions" to mysterious agents for unspecified  services, small fortunes and  large ones in outright bribes to  government figures, slush  funds, Swiss bank accounts, ex-  officers on the payroll of  private arms firms, diplomats  and even Presidents and Prime  Ministers who acted as  unofficial salesmen for the  same private firms, etc. ad  nauseum.  Scandal and corruption have  always been a part of the arms  business.

Governments in Japan and  West Germany have been  recently toppled by similar  scandals as the desperate  salesmanship of the arms  companies exaggerates every  minor crisis into a major threat  in the attempt to keep the  orders and the guns and money  flowing. Many a politician has  been faced with the dilemma of  favouring disarmament and  arms control in principle while  having to represent people  whose jobs depend on arms  manufacture.  The Arms Bazaar is more  than just a history. It confronts  us with the essential moral and  ethical questions raised by the  traffic in weapons. In spite of  scandals, the arms dealers stick  to their principles: that the  proliferation of weapons is a  deterrent; that "if we don't sell  arms to whoever wants them,  someone else will, and that  arms forge alliances, making  the buyer militarily and  economically dependent on the  seller; and that a healthy arms  industry is vital in case of war".  While it may be true that  people and not guns start wars,  the Lebanese conflict boldly  illustrates that the attempt by  Western or Soviet governments  to control whose fingers wind  up on the triggers has been  ludicrously and tragically  unsuccessful. As the superpowers exert pressure on their  allies to by "standardized"  weapons for NATO or the  Warsaw Pact, keeping their  arms industries in high gear,  these allies, to keep their own  arms industries in business or  offset their balance of  payments, turn and sell  weapons to the revolutionaries  and paranoid status-seeking  dictators of the impoverished  Third World.  Here the arms race assumes  its most tragic aspect.

The situation has  been summed up eloquently by  General Moshe Dyan of Israel:  "the only solution is not to give  us more arms for our security,  but to give us more security so  we can have less arms". Experts  from the military industrial  complex have stated that a halt  in the manufacture of arms  would bring the capitalist  Western economic structure to  its knees. Sampson points out  that "experts" said the same  thing about the Slave Trade in  the 19th century, but it was  abolished. A growing number  of scientists and technicians are  devoting themselves to finding  a way of re-tooling industry  towards peacefully profitable  ends, but the arms industry and  its powerful lobby is well  entrenched worldwide.  There are some hilarious  moments in The Arms Bazaar;  the Lockheed executives  junketing around the world  with suitcases full of money,  cheerfully filling the pockets of  every con-artist who even looks  like he might have an "in" with  the brother-in-law of the tailor  who sews the royal monogram  on the underwear of the local  despot. You'll laugh 'til you  throw up. As one arms dealer  put it in an uncharacteristically  candid moment, ''Gentlemen,  we are in a hell of a business".  That may not just be The  Understatement of The  Century, it could very well be  its epitaph.

Coast News, September 4,1979  Tagging to discover  Mystery of Monarch migration  by Maryanne West  Fran, sorting the mail on a  day in January asked, "Who do  you know in Sault Ste. Marie?"  At that time no one, nor did the  name Kcndrick ring any bells. I  expected it to be another letter  from someone upset by the  triviality of CBC AM radio but  Eva Kendrick had seen my  name in the University of  Toronto's annual Monarch  Butterfly Migration Report. In  fact she had friends on the  Sunshine Coast and had  intended to get in touch when  she visited, but then thought 1  might consider her a crazy old  lady to be chasing butterflies. I  suppose not too many  grandmothers in their seventies  go around with a butterfly net  catching and tagging  Monarchs, but many may wish  they could.  Now she had taken her  courage in both hands and  decided to write. I was, needless  to say, amused at the thought  that I might write someone else  off as crazy! And as for  chronological age, when people  share an interest or a hobby  neither age, gender or other  impediment have any  importance. So this summer on  a trip west Eva and a daughter  dropped by to talk butterflies  and alter her return home she  mailed some to me.  It has been. i excellent year  for Monarchs in Sault Ste.

I put the First consignment of  several females in a breeding  cage and they obligingly laid  some eggs on the milkweed  leaves. The butterflies which  Ian photographed were from  those eggs. The next  consignments arrived when we  had a houseful of visitors so I  just tagged and released them  expecting some would lay eggs  on the milkweed in the garden,  it's the only food plant  favoured by this species and it  doesn't grow wild along the  Coast. For some reason this  doesn't seem to have happened  or perhaps something has eaten  the caterpillars while they were  still tiny. Ian and I looked but  couldn't Find a one.  When I First told Ian about  the tagged Monarchs I'd  released he said he'd like to get  some photographs so we  arranged that I'd let him know  when the remaining Five pupa  which were hanging from the  lid of the breeding cage were  ready for the butterflies to  emerge.  The pupa changes from a  ��  SUNSHINE  KITCHENS  FINE CABINETS  886-9411 Gibsons  translucent blue-green to a  rather dull opaque blue-gray as  the butterfly develops inside;  then to black as you can see the  black body and black wing  markings through the  transparent skin. There may  still be 24 hours or so before  anything happens.  Cooler weather had slowed  down the process and these  pupa were taking their time.  Eventually, one evening one  butterfly had safely emerged.  Next morning three more were  already black. I phoned Ian.  Having a few other things to  do he asked, "How long?"  "Could be a matter of  minutes or several hours," I  told him. It's as impossible to  predict accurately as the onset  of any birth process, everything  is apparently ready but you still  have to wait for whatever  triggers the action. In the case  of an emerging butterfly it's all  over in a matter of seconds. We  forgot to time it, Ian was too  busy with the camera and I was,  as usual, spellbound.  Anyway we agreed that I'd  keep a close watch and Ian  would come out at lunchtime  prepared to stay if by then  nothing had happened.  I looked at them every half  hour or so and nothing was  happening; then I became  involved in some project and  forgot them for awhile and  when I looked again one was  Ion the Beautiful Sunshine Coast at Gower Point  ��� Guestrooms (BreakfastIncluded)  * D'nlng Room   886-9033    fiSMUi  out, wings already extended  and another had just emerged.  Ian dropped everything to  spend the next hour plus  chrysalis watching. Nature  photography requires a high  degree of patience and I suspect  one is rarely rewarded as  quickly. You will have seen  Ian's excellent sequence of  pictures in last week's paper.  We'd been watching that initial  V shaped crack for quite  sometime, wondering if it was  our imagination, before the  butterfly began to push her way  out and then struggle to And a  sure footing on the remaining  pupal skin so that the wings can  hang free as they expand.  Next morning I gently  removed the soft scales from a  small patch on the forewing,  fixed a tag No. A 22993 to the  membrane and off she went.  Monarch populations in  Ontario travel the eastern  flyway to Mexico for the  winter; western populations  overwinter along the California  coast in places like Pacific  Grove where for many years'  they have been a tourist  attraction.  As a result of the  perseverance and dedicated  help of many people like Eva  Kendrick who year after year  tag hundreds of butterflies,  Professor Fred Urquhart, who  has spent a lifetime studying  Monarchs, has been able to  contribute a great deal to our  knowledge of their life cycle,  the amazing distances they fly  and where the populations  migrate to. We still do not  know how such an apparently  simple creature, without the  intelligence of more highly  evolved animals, navigates  successfully a journey of  thousands of miles, a journey  which most probably was not  undertaken by its immediate  forbears, but by the generation  before them.  The purpose of butterfly  transfers from east to west is  that it may perhaps produce  some data to fit a pattern which  may lead us to find out how  these insects navigate.  Carefree gardening  by Sandy Loam  Developing and planning to  create the MOST possible  garden on a small rocky lot  with little maintenance is a tall  order. One of the most  charming I have visited  surrounds the Porpoise Bay  home of Mike and Rita Sober.  Their garden has been designed  to utilize every inch to best  advantage considering sun,  shade and exposures. Mike had  to truck in soil and they have  used gravel, both fine and drain  rock, to segregate their  planting areas. They have not  one blade of grass which  immediately removes one  enormous burden. Their theme  is Japanese Canadian but is not  rigidly enforced.  The house I approached by  cobbled walks through an  exquisite Azalea, Rhododendron, fern and heather rockery  past a delightful reflecting  gold-fish pond and the entry is  brilliant with berried  Pyracantha climber. To the  side, square sections have been  left open in the cement patio to  accomodate plump everbloom-  ing roses and a grape vine  clambers its way along the  siding. This garden is full of  exciting little surprises in  sections most of us would  consider nether areas and  probably neglect. An example  is a two foot wide stretch  behind a storage shed. In most  gardens this area would be  tidied twice a year and ignored.  In the Sober garden over the  inevitable pebbles there are  about eight half barrels  growing vigorous tomatoes,  strawberries, grapes and in the  protective southern exposure  English Cucumbers. Imagine  thatl! Behind the shed!!! This is  another garden that sent me  home determined to try harder  and stop being lazy.  The back garden is business  like, with rows of square  boxed-in vegetable planters  surrounded by gravel. Again  no encroaching weeds or  grasses. The northern exposure  with a magnificent, absolutely  breath-taking view of the  Sound inlet is taken up by a  sundeck and tub garden  containing tuberose Begonias  in flaming oranges and  shattering pinks. Another  section north of the driveway is  a compact orchard with well-  nruned fruit trees heavily laden  Alyssum. As the Coles, the  Sobers are plagued more with  self seeded flowers than with  weeds. Lucky souls. I know it  took hard work and forethought but having done it all  correcdy from scratch, it now  A view of the Sober garden in Sechelt.  with fruit. They have four apple    seems almost effortless  trees, one pear, one cooking  cherry and three scattered  plums. Anyplace where you  might expect to see a foot of  wasted space you will find a full  strawberry barrel with fat little  shoots trying to root in the  pebbles.  In the rockery, salal and fern  mix with marguerites and all  blend beautifully with native  Broom and perennial yellow  and  incredibly beautiful. I don't  make notes as I admire gardens  like the Sobers', I just try to  curb the small green envy  molecules that start clustering  about my head like fruit flies.  Indoors? More lovely original  modern oil paintings. Some  people work very hard but in  the end they do seem to have  the best of all possible world.  Happy Gardening.

Peterson  'H  Mechanically, he began to  disentangle himself. After the  first sharp pain, a strange  warmth had flooded the region  about his ankle. It did not hurt  too much to try to move the  foot, but the foot would not  move. His mind flew circles  about the arms and legs that  began to crawl slowly up the  bank. He must not become  alarmed. He had never been  confronted with exactly this  situation before, but it was  merely something that must be  considered as part of the day's  experience. It was he alone,  against the predicament that  had already asserted itself, and  against whatever complications that might invite  themselves from here on in.  He reached the top of the  bank at last. Again he tried the  injured limb. The ankle  appeared not to be broken, but  it would not bear his weight.  One ski had broken when he  had fallen against it, and he had  dragged the longer part of it  with him up the slope. With his  toque as padding, it made a  passable crutch.  Slowly, he started out. The  snow was falling faster now, the  flakes scurrying like startled  geese among the upper trees,  and settling like quiet moths in  the calmer air below. Again his  mind darted before and after  him, nudging him with  thoughts. He would at least not  lose his way before dark. How  far to the cabin? What speed  could he maintain through the  deepening snow? Idly he  thought, "Supper will have to  be a bit late," and he smiled  sardonically to himself. Deeper  than this surface flippancy, a  suspicion of a doubt attempted  to assert itself, but he would not  listen yet.  Now the warmth had left his  foot again, and the pain  returned. It was a throb this  time that sent long streamers of  torture upwards with each  bump and jar. The temperature  was dropping rapidly. The  flakes of snow were finer, and  the new layer was deceptively  soft and fluffy over the old.  Finally, the makeshift crutch  became unmanageable. Just as  darkness closed in, he  abandoned it, leaving it  sticking like a soldier's rifle  from a drift. He reasoned the  direction he must crawl, and  continued on his way.  Now, gradually, his  conception of the situation  changed. Relative proportions  readjusted, and all factors of  his plight shifted, so that some  of the old were lost to view, and  some of the new exposed.  Doubts and questions that had  been buried deep lay bared at  the surface of his mind. "If" lay  side by side with "When", and  "Defeat" loomed up from  nowhere to overshade  "Success". He accepted them,  and did not care. Fear was still  submerged.  Now his thoughts began to  trick his mind. "Has this  catastrophe really befallen  you?" they whispered. "Is it  really you inching your way  towards a goal you cannot  reach, or is it someone else?"  Someone else? But he was  alone!  Then the setting changed,  and there were a thousand  figures crawling towards a  limitless horizon. It changed  again, and there was only one.  Idly he glanced at the figure,  certain that he would recognize  himself, but he saw instead a  woman. But it was absurd!  How could a woman come to  pit herself against these  elements? What could be the  urge within her that might  impel her on when reason  showed how futile was her  case? Then he knew her  thoughts. She was hoping for  help. She was not attempting to  reach a goal herself, but she was  keeping on until someone  stronger than she might find  her.  Between twinges of pain that  brought him back to earth, he  seemed to be floating over the  snow. Even in the dark he  recognized here and there a tree  along the way he had travelled  so often, and he was able to  gauge the distance still to go. It  was a long way.  He realized suddenly that far  back in time he had rejected the  possibility of reaching home.  He, alone, was finally to lose  against the elements he had  won against for so long. But,  suppose���suppose there could  be help. He would need then to  reach only to where he could  call his cabin. His tired mind  tried to determine why he could  expect help from there, but it  couid not decide.  He didn't know when or  where he began to call. The first  cry startled him. Was that his  voice calling for help? He had  never needed anybody's, help  before; he had never needed  anyone at all. But he needed  someone now. He knew that he  cried out again and again as he  crawled, but his voice did not  reach his ear.  Then it seemed that he was  no longer moving. Slowly, later  still, there came the realization  that hands were touching him,  and that he was moving  mechanically through a  darkness. Just before all  consciousness was lost in a void  of sleep, he felt the warmth of  home and, far away yet near,  there was the sound of a  woman's voice.  Teen centres  This summer two teen  centres have been run by two  workers sponsored by the  Wilson Creek Community  Association and given a grant  by Young Canada Works. The  teen centre has had supervised  trips to lakes, Vancouver and  other areas. They've had  barbeques, canoe trips, hikes  and sports days. The most  successful of these activities  have been the barbeques at  different lakes and the sports  days with up to IS to 20 teens  taking part. The teen workers  feel that the summer activities  have been successful and that  winter activities would be even  better attended.  The teen workers wish to  express their total thanks to the  Wilson Creek Family Centre  and the different community  workers including the Pender  Harbour Community Association, the School Board, and the  school principals who have  allowed us the use of their  facilities and equipment.  The workers would also like  to bring to your attention the  fact that a survey is being taken  in order to assess the attitudes  of people towards various  aspects of recreation including  establishing permanent teen  programs. Should you wish to  include your opinion please  note the questionnaires are  available from the Wilson  Creek Day Care Centre. Please  ask for April at 885-2721.  The workers extend their  special thanks to Ruby Lake  Restaurant for donating ice  cream on a hot day.

Full report and pictures  next week.  From Skelly in Ottawa  No Kitimat oil port  by Ray Skelly  First the good news which is  from the Prime Minister's  office: in reply to my letter of  August 2, 1979, Joe Clark  writes to confirm "the  government does not view with  favour the establishment of an  oil port in Kitimat".  That assurance may, at first,  seem after the fact since the  Kitimat pipeline*proposal  which resurfaced this summer  has once again been  withdrawn. On looking back  on the history of the proposal,  however, the only thing that is  certain is that the idea is never  far from the rumenations of the  people who control the  petroleum industry as shown  by the fact that the application  has come up twice and once  was so firmly put that a full  commission of inquiry was set  up to look into the merits Of the  idea.  Technically, the Kitimat-to-  Edmonton pipeline proposal is  still on the back burner because,  it is one of four alternative ways  being considered to move  Alaska oil to the U.S. midwest  where energy planners say it is  needed.  The other three proposals  are for:  * a pipeline running parallel  to the Alaska Highway  bringing oil directly from  Alaska's Northern Slope to  existing pipelines in Alberta  (this is known as the Foothills  proposal);  * a pipeline from a new oil  terminal   at   Port   Angeles,  Washington which would cross  the border into B.C. at Sumas  and travel up to Edmonton and  connect there with existing  pipelines;  * a pipeline from the  proposed Port Angeles  terminal, across the northern  tier of the United States directly  to Chicago.

I'm just wondering if you've  had any similar pieces of  information like the one I'm  about to tell you. Yesterday  morning I woke up at 7:00  a.m. due to a constant  "buzzing" sound coming from  the direction of the kitchen.  When I approached that room  the place was filled with  wasps���mostly congregating  on the sink and window above  it.  They seemed somewhat  exhausted as only a few were  actually flying around. Some  were even in various stages of  dying..Couldn't see where they  were coming in though but I  suspected the window sash  area. Anyways, after hurriedly  ushering them out the door  etc., I forgot all about it and  they promptly disappeared the  rest of the day.  Well, this morning I awoke  rather suddenly around 5:30  a.m. It was still dark out. I went  into the kitchen and the whole  outside of the window was  swarming with wasps and they  were very angry, trying to get  inside (I had sealed off the  window sash area).  The kitchen light even made  them more incensed. They'd fly  straight into the pane at a  terrific force.  After a half hour, approx  imately, I watched them all  gather in one thick curtain that  left no view to the outside  exposed. They looked as*if  trying to contemplate what to  do next. I crossed my fingers  hoping they wouldn't discover  the bedroom window that is  stuck open.  Then the first streaks of  daylight started filtering  through and as soon as that  started they all disappeared  again. I wonder what  tomorrow will bring. Is this a  usual occurrence when  Autumn approaches? Are they  usually that aggressive and  one-tracked mind? These ones  seem determined to make my  cottage their winter home. Be  interested to hear of similar  experiences and what to do to  ward them off.  Sheila Evanson,  Gower Point Rd.  P.S. I even used that wasp spray  out and as soon as the stuff  dried a new force would be  right behind more angry than  ever. It just doesn't stop them.  I've talked to a couple of  people on this and on a theory  that a new queen may be  starting up on its own and  taken part of the nest with it.  When you sealed off the  window you could have  separated her from her  subjects. As I mentioned last  week, wasps have been a  problem this year. I haven't  been able to clean a fish  without having to spend half  my time swatting at them.  With the return of our usual  Rainshine Coast weather, the  problem should lessen.

Time to  be fit ,  It is at this time of year when  many feel the need to become  more active to shake off the  pleasant lethargy and the  accumulated pounds of  summer and to indulge in more  physical activity. If such is the  mood yon are in the hard part  will be deciding which of the  many fitness classes you would  enjoy most. Want to get your  heart beat up but aren't much  of a jogget? "Aerobic Dance"  will exercise your heart and  lungs as well as legs and torso,  and all you will think you are  doing is the cha-cha!  For the more sedate,  "Fitness for Real" and "Fit or  Fat" will instruct in the how's  and why's of exercise and the  body, as well as provide a good  workout. Particularly geared to  women over 35, "Ladies Keep  Fit" in Wilsop Creek  concentrates on body toning  and flexibility rather than  cardio-vascular exercises. And  "Fitness For Those Who Hate  Exercising" focuses on mature  and senior people, emphasising  bending, stretching, massage  and relaxation.  For those who like to get  their exercise in a sporting  manner, what more could one  ask than the chance to play  Badminton, Basketball,  Volleyball or Soccer.  Gymnastic programmes are  available for students, and  "Adult Activity Night" on  Thursdays in Sechelt makes a  gymnasium available for the  sport of your choice. For the  more artistically inclined  athlete, Disco and Ballroom  Dancing instruction will  provide an elegant outlet for  that extra energy. To complete  the fitness-exercise circuit,  numerous Yoga classes are  offered to slow the body down,  to encourage and enhance  deep-breathing, flexibility, and  relaxation. At the opposite end  of the fitness spectrum from  Aerobic Dance, it is an  excellent way to improve  circulation, tone muscles and  keep joints limber.  So there's what to do if you  are looking for activity.  There'll be something  happening in a community,  close to you, so get out and take  advantage of it.

Pearson  Building for the final day of the  Forum for Young Canadians.  The topic of our first  discussion was Business,  Labour and Governement. Mr.  Mark Daniels, Mrs. G.  Hartman and. Mr. Ken McKee  participated in this panel  discussion, "Making Canada  Work���Careers and the  Future". Some of the subjects  we discussed were exceedingly  interesting. The panel  explained that some of the  biggest problems of modern  civilization our generation will  have to solve in the future. The  problems include; the  development of new energy  supplies, population control  and solving the inevitable food  shortages of the future.  The next session was a  Federal-Provincial Conference. We each divided into our  provinces and prepared a  statement outlining our  proposals. Each group elected  a Premier for their Province. I  was elected Premier of the  Province of British Columbia.  When   the   groups   finished  writing their provinces  statement the Premiers  gathered and sat on a panel  with the elected Prime  Minister. The remaining  Forum students assumed the  role of the media. Each Premier  spoke for three minutes on  issues they felt were relevant to  the conference. I discussed such  points as, bilingualism,  education, cable television and  energy. Our statements were  thoroughly questioned and  criticized by the media.  When we completed the  Plenary Session we toured  Rideau Hall, residence of the  Governor General of Canada.  This was the most magnificent  building I had seen in Ottawa.  The design and decor was  beautiful. The residence was  truly designed for royalty. Less  than 24 hours from this point I  would be behind the doors  which separated the tourists  from the Governor General's  family. (I was one of 12  students selected to stay an  extra two days with the  Governor General's family.  My next article will deal with  my exciting and eventful stay.)  In the evening, to conclude  our session of the Forum for  Young Canadians, we had a  farewell   banquet   at  the  National Arts Centre. Later in  the evening we had a disco at  Ashbury College. It was a time  to relax, chat with new friends  and dance all night.  In the past weeks I have  attempted to share a part of my  exciting Forum experience with  you. Speaking on behalf of  myself and 99 other Forum  students, "We found it  fascinating". I can guarantee to  you that each and everyone of  us have profited in some way  from this educational program.  In the coming years I sincerely  expect to see some of these  graduates at the helm of  Canada.  I would have been unable to  attend the Forum for Young  Canadians if it were not for the  support of the Gibsons Lions  Club. This fall I will be  attending a Lions Club meeting  to show a slide show of my trip.  The Forum for Young  Canadians is truly a unique  educational program developed by the non-profit  Foundation for the Study of  Processes of Government in  Canada. The Forum presented  students with an opportunity to  discuss the important issues of  the day with those in actual  policy-making positions.

Coast News, September 4,1979  Cablevision rates up  In any community, a certain pride is held for its health care  facilities���the Sunshine Coast is no dhferent.  On September 22, ribbon cutting ceremonies will officially open  new additions to the St. Mary's Hospital. The board of trustees  cordially invite the community to attend at 2 p.m. Remarks by  delegates and guided tours to the new areas and renovations will  follow. Refreshments will be served.  Minister of Health Bob McClelland has been invited to  officiate.  The St. Mary's Hospital was built in 1964. The top floor was  constructed in 1972 and now in 1979 final additions are  completed.  Since the middle of the  decade hospital costs have been  rising steadily. Today hospitals  are facing the most serious  budget cutbacks in their  histories. Major centres are  those hardest hit.  Hospital administrators  were met early this year with a  5% ceiling on additional health  care spending as announced by  Health Minister Bob McClelland. With inflation, that  results in a budget reduction of  4 to 10%.  In 1976 St. Mary's Hospital  began its own cost containment  program. With a surgeon gone  on sabbatical for a year, the  workload did decrease and  control was achieved.  According to Administrator  Nicholas Vucurivich, the  workload has only this year  reached and surpassed its load  with the extra summer tourists.  "We have a tight control on  finances and are not giving way  to financial deficits.  "Where other hospitals went  ahead with procedures or  projects not budget approved,  thinking the money would  come later, we have not.  "Basically the Board's  objective is not to run into a  deficit position so I have run  with a budget approved by the  Board and not outspent that  budget; keeping in mind  extraordinary situations," he  said in a recent interview.  In 1978 a per diem of $125.10  was budgeted as cost per acute  patient per day. This year that  budget has increased to  $140.80. Other revenues;  outpatients, emergencies,  cafeteria and rental charges,  are substracted from that  budgeted per diem. Surpluses  are not kept by the'hospital���  an incentive for good  management that Vucurivich  feels should be kept.  Eighty per cent of all funding  is earmarked for people���staff.  That percentage will fluctuate  at times. The remaining funds  go to overhead.  Vucurivich sees the hospital  as a "plant" where every  department must be taken into  account for total efficiency.  Since April six budget-  approved employees have been  added to the staff of  approximately 200. Of those  six, three are in nursing. The six  employees budgeted will flow  from department to department as required.  sometime in October. After  review by hospitals and the  BCHA and recommendations  formed, the report will be  "brought down" in Cabinet by  Health Minister Bob McClelland.  One recommendation that  Administrator Vucurivich is  concerned about is a more  appropriate method of  determining budgets for the  small, medium and large sized  hospitals���each very different  in its needs.  Hydro  On August 23, 1979 the  Canadian Radio Television &  Telecommunications Commission (CRTC) approved  increases for the monthly  service rates of Coast Cable  Vision Ltd.  Coast Cable Vision Ltd. had  applied for an increase in rates  on February 26, 1979 and the  proposal was considered by the  CRTC at a Public Hearing held  in Vancouver on June 19,1979.  The new cable service rates,  which become effective  October 1, 1979 will mean an  increase of $1.00 per month for  the Sechelt and Gibsons  portion of Coast Cable Vision's  operations and a 50c per month  increase for Halfmoon Bay  subscribers.  Installation and extension  service rates will not be  changed in any of the areas now  served by the Company.  A Company spokesman  stated that "these increases are  necessary to maintain the high  standards of service presently  offered and to provide  equipment for the introduction  of new services such as  community programming".  Coast Cable Vision presently  provides cable television  service from Langdale to  Halfmoon Bay and is currently  surveying extensions of service  to the Pender Harbour Area.  St. Mary's Hospital Administrator Nicholas Vucurivich.  It is often heard from the  medical profession that the  funding system is antiquated.  The British Columbia Health  Association and the Ministry of  Health hope to make some  changes to this system now 25  years old.  The BCHA and the Ministry  of Health are jointly  sponsoring a study begun two  years ago by the charted  accounting firm of Ernste and  Winney, one of the largest  accounting firms in North  America, chosen for their  broad knowledge.  St. Mary's Hospital was  chosen last year as one of the  four model hospitals from  across B.C. to be used for the  report. The hospitals were  chosen to get the best possible  cross-section of hospital size  and technical capacity.  According to. Vice Chairman  of the Steering Committee of  the BCHA, Gorden Gilley, the  report   will   be   released  meeting  continued from page one  Harrison said.  Complaints were expected  from residents of Earl's Cove  and North Lake. At the  September 6 meeting representatives from those areas will  be present.  Area representatives admit  they are divided on the route  issue. "We're not trying to put it  onto anyone else but we just  don't believe this is the best  place for it," said Doug  Williams, representative of  Earl's Cove residents.  Ivo Cargnelli of Sakinaw  Lake will be making a  presentation at the meeting  proposing an alternate,  substation site.  Cargnelli has been research-1  ing the possibility of building I  the substation on the Cove Cay I  subdivision. The subdivision!  was begun four years ago but I  has since had financial!  difficulties. The Sakinaw Lake I  representatives propose that I  Hydro could buy t he I  subdivision and use the upper!  portion for the substation!  rather than the earlier'site near!  the Pender Harbour High!

What has been a summer  cottage on the Beecham  property on the Bluff with  access only from Shoal  Lookout will become a  separate lot with access across  the Trevor Goddard properly  on Avalon Drive.  The Pentecostal Church has  requested to purchase a portion  of Lot 8 on School Road, the  lot the village reservoir is  situated on, to add to their  present holding in the area for  future expansion of their  church facilities. Council will  get an engineering report on  future reservoir needs before  making a decision on the  church's request.  Robert O'Connel of the  Uptown Motel has proposed  turning part of his property on  Hillcrest and North Roads into  an overnight parking area for  transient recreational vehicles  and to provide sewer and water  hook-ups. council approved  this needed service but when it  expressed concern that the  facility might become a  permanent mobile park, it was  pointed out that permit  allowed only recreational  vehicles up to a maximum  length of 25 feet ancfa width of  8.  When George Giannakos  and Bruce Gorman, architect,  presented an application to rezone four lots next to the  Omega to Commercial 2, as  well as plans for thc beginning  phases of what will in time be a  restaurant-hotel-retail shopping complex, the planning  committee called for more  detailed plans from the  architect, and the immediate  completion of backfill and  clean-up along the retaining  wall built last Fall. Parking  requirements will also have to  accommodate some of the  parking now lacking for the  'present commercial and  restaurant operation.  ������������"���^xHHHf"  SUNNYCREST  SHOPPING  CENTRE  886-2277  R  T  mmm*  IBSONS  KEALTY  VANO LAND DEVELOPMENT LTD.

Coast News, September 4,1979  On becoming a Rover  Ramblings of a Rover  bv Dee Cee  Life On Acton Farm  Although I do not think that  any boy ever had a better  home-life than I did in the little  town of F. with my kind and  loving parents, my three  bothers and my sister, there  were however distinct  advantages to living, if only  temporarily, down on the farm  at Charing. The predominant  one was thc fact I did not have  to go lo church on Sunday!  While my Father was passive as  regards the mailer of church  attendance and got out of it  himself b> saying he was too  busy on Sunday mornings  straightening up things in the  shop alter a late Saturday's  closing, my Mother was  insistent that, nol only did she  have to attend both the  morning service and the  evening one as well but that her  lour sons and one daughter had  to accompany her, unless some  urgent reason such as sickness  prevented them from doing so.  My Mother's faith was not, I  am certain, a trifling affair,  something to be dismissed  lightly as being the correct  thing to do as the wife of a  successful grocer with five  children to direct onto the  proper path. No, I am sure her  faith in God, the Bible and the  church was deep and sincere  and she was very active in  church affairs, teas, bazaars  and charitable works, to name  a few. All this was okay with me  but as far as I was concerned I  wished to be left strictly out of  it. My two brothers Billy and  George sang in the choir and it  was Mother's wish that I follow  suit.  I had other ideas, so on the  evening of my audition I really  put on an act. I don't think I  had a voice to start with and, as  I have said before, had no car  for music but on this particular  evening I went at it with all the  zeal I could muster so that  when the strains of Abide With  Me or Rock of Ages began on  the organ I let loose with a  bellow that fairly shook the  rafters of the ancient edifice  and really startled, not only the  choirmaster, but caused my  fellow choristers to stare at me  in disbelief that so much sound  could be emitted by so small an  individual. My friend Bill D.,  who was "in" on my  performance to escape this  choir business, told me later  that the choirmaster had  remarked Ihat I sounded like a  "bullfrog with laryngitis" and  that, while my voice had a.  quality that might fit in with  singing sea chanties or ribald  songs associated with  scoundrels and ruffians, it  certainly had no place in a  sacred institution such as the  church. God, was I ever  pleased, although my Mother  was saddened to think that her  favourite son, her youngest,  could not take his place in the  house of God and sing the  paeans of praise to which she  felt he was entitled.  Down at Acton there was  none of this church business to  contend with. Tehe simple fact  was neither my aunt, uncle or  three girl cousins ever went as  far as I knew and, better still,  on Sundays there were no  restrictions on what we could  or could not do. At home my  sister was forbidden to play the  piano (unless of course it was  sacred music), there was no  card playing allowed and  voices had to be kept at a low  decibel, and such pursuits as  going fishing or kicking a ball  around were frowned on as  unfitting for the Sabbath Day.  On the farm we could do more  or less as we liked, as long as we  stayed within bounds, so is it  any wonder I really enjoyed my  holidays there. There were so  many exciting things to see and  do and, for a boy especially, so  many odd and interesting  characters to get to know. I  think my Uncle Edwin must  have had an eye and an ear  tuned to acquiring not only  bargains in cattle, horses and  swine at the market days in  Ashford but also some of the  oddest eccentrics as farm  labourers as it was possible to  imagine.  There was Larry S., the  waggoner, who lived in one of  thc cottages on the farm and  who had, in former days, seen a  great deal of the world in the  Royal Navy and had a  remarkable memory for places  and events, particularly if they  were of an obscene nature, and  delighted in telling "off colour  stories" to his cronies at the  pub when he was well "into his  cups" on a Saturday night.  Then there was hairless Terry,  the yardman, who had served  many years in the British Army  in India and there had  contracted a disease that had  left him completely devoid of  hair, not only on the top of his  head but also he had no facial  hair, no eyebrows or even  eyelashes, only a deep  mahogany tan that had never  left him. He was a very  powerfully built man and,  although good natured and  easy to get along with during  the week, on Saturday nights at  the Rose and Crown at Charing  Heath, where all my Uncle's  workers congregated, if an  argument developed and he  was involved things could get  very nasty indeed. He could be  extremely dangerous to handle  in a fight and the police had to  be called to subdue him.  Charing, being a small village,  only had one policeman, so if  Terry was involved reinforcements had to be called in from  neighbouring villages to assist,  not only in ejecting him from  the pub but in getting him  under lock and key.  Then there was my favourite  character, old Charlie, who was  the odd-job man at Acton. He  ������efused to live with the other  men, some with their wives, in  the cottages provided, but  chose as his abode a  ramshackle dwelling-place  down in a copse near the duck  pond. It consisted of four  wattle gates thatched with  straw with one end open to the  Police News  Gibsons Police News  Residents are reminded to  use caution when leaving  vehicles parked on Highway  101 in Langdale. More  incidents of vandalism  continue.  On August 30 a report of  mischief came from Highway  101 in Langdale after the rear  window of a '77 Toyota  Corolla was smashed.  On the same day $600 worth  of 1906 lathe accessories were  stolen from Burns Road.  Theft was reported on  August 29 from Marine Drive  when an eight-foot dinghy  Sport-Yak make valued at $ 120  was stolen.  On August 28 windows were  reported broken at a house on  Poplam Island. The matter is  still under investigation.  Personal cards were stolen  from a wallet left in an  unlocked parked car in Roberts  Creek on August 27.  Sechelt  "The worst crime of the  week," occurred at 4:55 a.m. on  August 26 when volunteer  firemen were called out on a  false alarm to the Sechelt  Indian Reserve.

Charlie too had seen  "better days" and, although I  never did learn all about his  past life, it was obvious that he  was a man of intelligence and  breeding. Rumour had it that  he was the black sheep of a  titled family, had been a  remittanceman in Canada and  Australia and now, in a way  only he knew, had drifted into  casual labour on the farm. I  was really fascinated with  Charlie and his views and  philosophy of life and I intend  some day to write more about  him but, for the present, can  you wonder why life down on  Acton Farm had such an  appeal for a boy who was on  the threshold of life and  literally was champing on the  bit to get going?
