It's a  friendly place."  Blaine Hagedorn continues  as manager and part-owner of  the Super-Valu store in the  Sunnycrest Shopping Centre.  Blaine moved to the Sunshine  Coast four years ago to take  up his present position. Prior  to doing so he had been a  fourteen year employee in the  Kelly-Douglas chain of stores.  One thing that has changed  is that Blaine has given up  sailing in favour of a spanking  new power boat. He expressed  himself as being very satisfied with the way things had  gone at the end of the first  year in the Mall. "It has been  a good year," hc told the  Coast News last weekend.  Haig Maxwell owns and  manages thc Western Drugs  store in the Sunnycrest Shopping Centre. He is one of the  originals of thc Gibsons Mall,  opening his store in the original Mall in thc site of what is  now Link Hardware in 1970.

He is a man of diverse and  varied activities, being Past  President of the Gibsons Kinsmen, presently President of  the Mall Association, and  Vice-President of Western  Drug Marts.

Doug was born in Edmonton  Alta., but has been a resident  of Surrey, B.C. for several  years. Prior to coming to the  Sunshine Coast he had worked  in the Saan's organization  for six months.

EASTER  SAVINGS  AT  SAAN  ��'��,  Richard Macedo continues  as the proprietor-manager  of Richard's Mens Wear in the  Sunnycrest Shopping Centre,  ably assisted by his wife  Betty. The Macedos also have  a family in addition to their  business activities.  Richard's was originally  known as Marine Men's Wear  and was located in the Lower  Village, moving up to the  Sunnycrest Shopping Centre  when it opened last year.  Richard professes himself  very pleased with the move.  "We are very pleased to be  working with the people of  the Mall. It's a friendly  place," said Richard, himself  no slouch when it comes to  friendliness. "We are aiso  very pleased with the acceptance that the Mall has found  with the people of the Sunshine Coast."  Ken and Lorraine Goddard  are the owners of Goddard's  Fashion Centre in the Sunnycrest which opens its second  official year this week. Ken  Goddard is a fourth generation  Canadian and a second generation Britsh Columbian.  Lorraine Goddard was born in  Regina, Sask., and moved to  B.C. at the age of eleven. The  Goddards moved to the  Sunshine Coast in 1962 at  which time Ken was employed by Rock Gas Propane  Company.  In 1968 they bought what  was then The Thrifty Dress  Shop which occupied half  of what is nov, the Bank of  Montreal building in Lower  Gibsons. They moved to the  original Sunnycrest Mall when  it opened in 1970.  Ken Goddard expressed  himself as being quite satisfied with the new Mall.  "It's not been all that bad a  year," he said, "especially  when you consider the general  economic conditions. The Mall  is growing and finding  acceptance in the community."  King Fawkes and his wife  Francis, owners of Fawkes  Books, in the Sunnycrest  Shopping Centre, bring a  wealth of business experience  into the new Mall. Both were  long-time managers for Simpson-Sears in Burnaby, King  for twenty-three years and  Francis for seventeen.  King is a native of Speirs,  Alberta, and Francis was born  in Vancouver, B.C. Francis'  relationship with the Sunshine  Coast goes back over thirty-  five years. She went to school  here and also holidayed  with her grandparents. Mr.  and Mrs. Charles Tyler of  Sechelt. Mr. Tyler built  the original Legion building  in Sechelt. The Fawkes'  have had a summer home in  Sechelt for twenty years  before deciding to make their  home here permanently.  Francis Fawkes expresses herself as being very-  pleased with customer acceptance of the local Mall.  "We have done very steady  business throughout the  year," she told the Coast  News last week as the Mall's  first anniversary approached.  none    v  mcr w  Henry s  Bakery  . ,^ ��!*&.

What with the new baby  and the store and Terry's job  at the mill which he kept until  November of 1977, it's been a  busy year, but they really  enjoy their store and feel that  the activity has been well  worth it.  Terry and Jenny moved  the Sunshine Coast three  years ago from Vancouver.  Terry is a native of California;  Jenny was born in England  but has lived in Vancouver  since she was three.

She was born in  Waco, Texas, in 1900, daughter of a Yorkshireman called  Arthur Rhodes who had  moved to Texas and met  and married there a girl from  Tenessee called Susan. Arthur  Mrs. Gladys Armour is  pictured in her garden at  1212 Burns Road prior to  her departure for Salmon  Arm.  and Susan Rhodes moved to  Winnipeg in 1902 with the  eighteen month old Gladys.  The next stop for the Rhodes  family was in Saskatchewan  where Arthur drove a team  and delivered supplies for  the N.W.M.P. between  Battlcford and Lloydminster  before moving to Vancouver in  1904.  Thc first home that Gladys  remembers was a farm situated near where the Gibsons  Medical Clinic now stands.  Later they moved to a home  site near where the Super Vaiu  store stands on thc hill, and  then again to thc Trethewcy  house on Reed Road.  Gladys became a teacher  and married Sam Armour in  the twenties. The first house  they lived in was across from  Armour's place which stood  above Armour's Beach in the  site now occupied by John  Loudon. That first house is the  one now owned by Bill Peterson. From there the Almonds  moved up to Pratt Road where  they lived until Sam Armour  died in 1954.  During their years on Pratt  Road Sam Armour worked at  the fish canneries up north  and Gladys accompanied him  until their three children  were of school age at which  time she began to stay behind and look after their Pratt  Road place. She remembers  them as busy, happy summers  while she looked after cows  and chickens and children.  After her husband's death,  Gladys went back to teaching  for eleven years, the last  eight of them at Gibsons Elementary School from which  she retired in 1966 and then  moved to her present home on  Burns Road in the Bay Area in  1967.  When the Coast News visited her this weekend she was  in the process of packing her  belongings in preparation of  a move to Salmon Arm to  live with her son Sam. "The  dampness is getting to me  now," said Gladys, and she  feels that the move to the  dryer climate will be a beneficial one.  The names associated with  the family are a fair representation of names long associ  ated with Gibsons. Her  eldest daughter Bea Skellett  was helping her pack and her  other daughter is Sue Tyson  who.lives now near Deep Cove  Gladys has kept in touch  with her mother's people,  visiting Waco, Texas in  1950 and 1959. She leaves for  a drier clime but not without  a touch of regret. Fifty-two  years is a long time to be a  resident of anywhere and the  roots and the memories go  deep.  The Coast News salutes her  departure and wishes her  joy in her new home.  ^7a   round  turkeys  77*  stegk  EASTER SALE  jpfe.  10% off all fabrics.  SMSfcA  w  SUNNYCREST CENTRE  Open: Mon-Sat.

Mike has one  of the finest shell collections in the world.  Mike Hotner ie also a  member off the Sunshine  Coast Lapidary Club and  in conjuction with other  club members will be  taking part in a rock  collecting display in the  Mall during the Easter  festivities.  The above shell almost cost Mike Hotner of Gibsons his life in a tussle with a manta ray off the  coast of Mexico. See Story below.  If you have never walked  the shores and stopped to  marvel at the variety and  splendor of life in the tidal  pools, well, you ain't seen  nothin'yet.  In a comfortable home off  the main highway in Gibsons  lives Mike Hotner, his wife  and half a million shells  collected from all over the  world.  When first viewing the  display one is completely  overwhelmed, not only by  a barrage of colour and shape,  but also by the amount the eye  tries to take in, and it is advisable to sit for a few minutes  and let some of it seep in  slowly.  Mike first became interested in shells about fourteen  years ago, and at an age of  over fifty years decided to  teach himself to swim in order  to do his own collecting. He  semi-retired from his occupation as a carpenter and for the  next ten years spent half his  life in Mexico, where he  would often put in three,  two-hour dives a day with a  cup of tea between each one.  Not all the dives were merely a matter of picking up the  ocean's bounty while ambling  along the bottom. On one  occasion, thc day he found a  Colnbraria Proccra, one of the  rarest shells in Mexico,  there arc not more than a  dozen in the world's collections, he nearly met his death.  Just as hc put the shell  into his collection bag, a manta ray got tangled in his compressor hose. It broke it and  started dragging him out to  deep water. Not wanting to  lose his prize he held on as  long as possible but finally  had to let go and extricate  himself from his diving harness. When he made it to  the surface he motored into  shore and borrowed some e-  quipment and went back for  the shells. As far as he knows  the ray still has his outfit.  Later on his whole body broke  out in a nervous rash when he  had time to think about his  close call. He knew that if he  hadn't gone back for the  shells it would have been his  last dive.  The values of the shells  depend entirely on the rarity.  For example, the Sypraea  Caurica is found widely spread  over the Pacific and has a  value of around $1.00.    The  same shell, but with a darker  pigmentation, found only in  New Caledonia, is worth  $40.00. Many shells have a  price tag in the hundreds of  dollars and higher.  One smallish shell, the Typhis from Mexico, has been  Mike's ace in the hole for  trading purposes. It is on  the market for $30.00 and he  is the only one who knows  where and how to consistently  find them. 99% of his collection has been obtained  either by finding them himself or trading. He has refined this down to where he  has one or two selective  traders around the world he  deals with.  Out of the 100,000 varieties of shells in the world  90,000 are so small that they  can be best viewed only by  using a microscope. Their size  decreases neither their value  nor their looks.  A sponge lying on one of  the display racks holds two  tiny shrimp captive. These  tiny crustaceans spend their  entire lives in this protective  cocoon. When they breed,  they allow the offspring to  stay for a while but chase  them out as soon as they grow  ���n-  ... .," %"   'nil  ~y��  i**>  7 .  "*>   "��f   J.

The baby  shrimps go off to find their  own home and two of them  take up residence. Eventually, they grow too big and are  there for life, and the cycle  starts again. In Thailand  these curios are given as wedding presents as a symbol  of fertility and fidelity.  They form part of the Mike Hotner  Hotner traded for this giant sand dollar in a restaurant in Mexico.  Malae Ringens sits magnificently amongst its kin.  This specimen, gazing down  from its shelf, was the largest  in the world when it first  joined the collection. It still  ranks up there with the  record holders.  Now most of Mike's shell  collecting is done locally,  either up around Egmont  or up Jarvis Inlet. In the Inlet he drags a small wire mesh  basket measuring 16"xl6"x  4" and comes up with an amazing variety, unsuspected by  most of us who see only the  top of the ocean.  At the present time he is  trying to organize a shell  club in B.C. From one of the  magazines he subscribes to  he enquired if they had any  more subscriptions from  B.C., and was happy to discover that there were over  forty. This he hopes will be  the nucleus of the club.  When not collecting shells  or bottles or growing his own  vegetables Mike and his wife  still have time to be ardent  rock hounds and are members  of the local lapidary club.  Opals are their favourites  and they have a fine collection.  In his own words Mike is  one of the few happily semi-  retired men. From his years  in the work force and with  supplementation from carpentry work, of which he is  never short, he has made  for his wife and himself a  good and rewarding life.

The week  before lasl lhc Regional Board  approved a bylaw which  would re-zone the north half  of District 1410 west of Porpoise Bay lo an industrial  zone with the proviso Ihat no  sawmills be allowed. This was  done to allow Jackson's Logging to affcel sonic changes in  his log-dumping operation.  At the lasl regular board  meeting Mike Jackson, who  was in attendance was invited to address the Board. Director Charles Lee objected  after thc fael saying thai since  thc public hearing was over  there should have been no  further presentations heard on  thc mailer. Il appears in  substance lhal Lee is correct  and the whole question of the  re-zoning must now go hack  to public hearing.

He's playing cat  and mouse with thc media, one of  his favourite games, about the date of  the forthcoming election. It seems  pretty certain thai we will be electing  a new federal government in June of  this year, however, after Mr. Trudeau  has had his fun.  Thc country is in sad shape, probably in the worst recession since the  Second World War. Even Ontario  is in economic difficulty and Quebec  beside being in terrible shape economically is threatening to break away  politically and will if the present  government means what it says and  gels whai il wants.  One would think that the leader of  the ruling parly might be running a  might scared as an election approaches. It is a measure of Canada's malaise that Pierre Eliot Trudeau can be  as smug and assured as he is given  the decade of non-achievement over  which he has presided. He has his  finger on Ihe pulse of the electorate,  however, and knows that Canadians  even before the election is announced   are   already   shrugging   their  shoulders and saying, "What choice  is there?"  And so a corrupt, cynical, and ineffectual administration will in all  likelihood be returned to power because of the poverty of choice available and because we have been mesmerized by our favourite millionaire.  In New York recently Mr. Trudeau  summed up Canada's economic plight  by saying that we are the victims of  our own success. Where, one wonders, does the Prime Minister find  evidence of Canada's success in the  last ten years since he came to the  top job?  ���It is a sad thing that throughout  this country political philosophy  and understanding is so moribund  that the only way we can choose our  government is by the personality,  real or imaginary, of one or two men.  It is rendered tragic by the arrogance  of Trudeau and the colourlessness  of his opponents. It is said that in a  democracy the people get the government that they deserve. It will furnish us cold comfort in the next  four years.  C.P. Smith  C.P.Smith, whose presence is  pointed out on Gibsons Wharf in  this week's historical picture on this  page, passed away recently in Burnaby. He was Ihe father of Harry  Smith of Smitty's Marina, grandfather of John Smith.  C.P.Smith arrived in Gibsons 1927  and purchased the original Gibsons  property stretching from the wharf  al! the way round the Bay. He constructed what is now internationally  known as Molly's Reach. During the  depression the structure housed  C.P.Smith's second-hand store which  in those pinched times provided just  about anything at rock-bottom price.  During his stay of approximately  thirty years in the area C.P. Smith  without fuss or fanfare helped many  who needed assistance in a variety  of quiet ways. We pay tribute to  his passing.  Consideration  Last Friday three boys set out in a  rented boat from Horseshoe Bay  cnroule. they said, to Pender Harbour. When the weather worsened  and they hadn't arrived in Pender  Harbour an air and sea rescue  search was undertaken. For fifteen  hours the 90-foot cutler Ready and a  hovercraft looked for them and at  first daylight Saturday an airplane  joined Ihe search. Thc boys were  subsequently found in the Snug  Cove  Motel on  Bowen  Island  and  approximately fifteen hours of search  had been without adequate cause.  Surely the whole expensive exercise could have been avoided with just  a little consideration on the part of  the boys in question. When the  decision, wise as was subsequently  proven, to spend the night on Bowen  Island was made, a simple phone  call lo their destination would have  saved many hundreds of dollars and  great expenditure of the energies  of the rescue people.  from the files of Coast Nam  5 YEARS AGO  Under lhc headline "A Government Buys a Town" the Coasl News  ran the story of how lhc provincial  government had made arrangements  In purchase the town of Ocean Falls  h r one million dollars.

Some facts about herbicides  The other face of 2,4-D  EDITORS NOTE: Last week  we brought you the first of a  three-part report on 2.4-D ���  Ihe herbicide used to spray  power lines. In the second  part Tamoff, reporting on a  publication which was put  together in ihe Okanagan.  basically sums up the evidence of harm done to humans.  CASE HISTORIES  Actual occurences of contamination by 2,4-D cannot be  subject to the same rigorous  controls as laboratory experiments. The effects are so  serious, however, that they  certainly must be considered.  In Vietnam, areas that were  defoliated during the war with  a mixture of 2,4-D and 2,4,5-T  showed tremendous increases  in human miscarriages, still-,  births,    and   birth   defects.  (11-15)  When the same chemicals  were used to improve grazing  land in the Tonto National  Forest near Globe, Arizona,  the rate of human fetal deaths1  and malformations became  the highest in the state.  (11-17)  In Nova Scotia 2.4-D,  2,4,5-T and Dicamba were  sprayed on the Belleisle  Marsh. A wind caused the  spray to drift onto the farm of  Robin Warren. One half of his  dairy herd was grazing in  the treated area. The other  half was upwind and didn't  conic into contact with the  spray. Of those in the sprayed  pasture twenty-two aborted  their calves. In the other  there was one abortion.(11-18)  A power line right of way  on Galiano Island, B.C.,  was sprayed with 2,4-D in  1973. The line ran near the  water supply of Dan and Fran-  cine Kcnaud. Their daughters  Sarah and lamie, born in  1973 and 1975 born had the  spina bifida malformations of  the spine. (11-18)  In Guamo, Columbia, one  million inhabitants were  exposed lo 2.4-D and 2,4,5-  T spraying. There followed an  apparent epidemic of human  abortions, stillbirths and malformations. (11-19)  CANCER  A carcinogen is any substance that produces an abnormal mass of tissue that  grows rapidly and continues  to grow after the original  stimulus ceases. "Not all  chemicals are carcinogens but  those that are produce neoplasia (tumors) at all dosage  levels. Because of differences  among individual humans it  is impossible to set tolerance  levels for carcinogens. Exposure to carcinogens is irreversible as well as cumulative. Many carcinogens have  proven to be more dangerous  when exposure is at low dosage over a long period, of  time. Research by the Bio-  netic Research Laboratory  in the U.S. Food and Drug  Administration demonstrates  that 2,4-D causes malignant tumors in laboratory rats  and mice. Evidence from  Sweden and Vietman suggests  that the phenoxy herbicides  cause cancer in humans as  well. (111-18)  The reference to Sweden  concerns a case where thirty  workers had been employed  to clear brush along the Swedish National Railway. In  1972 they were using a mixture of 2,4���D and 2,4,5���T.  Six of the thirty died of cancer,  by February 1973. The surviving workers reported that  they regularly suffered from  headaches, loss of taste, impairment of sight, bladder  contraction and impotency.  (111-16)  MUTATIONS  "2,4���D has produced genetic abnormalities in a variety  of plants in laboratory tests.  Very few tests have been done  on the mutagenic potential of  the phenoxy herbicides on  animals, but two tests using  2,4,5���T produced chromosome abnormalities in Mongolian gerbils and rats."  (1V-1I)  "Research done in Vietnam  in areas sprayed with the  phenoxy herbicides, reveals  widespread and extensive  chromosome damage leading  to a high rate of miscarriages,  stillbirths, congenital abnormalities and Downs Syndrome. Medical authorities  in that country compare  the effects to those in the survivors of Hiroshima and Nagasaki."

The machines vary somewhat in design from building to building  but the essential details are  the same. They are basically  ihree huge steel beams joined  by crossbraces and ride on electrified rails that run the  length of the line. The stud-  pulling mechanism and the  winch ride on a carriage and  can be moved from side to  side as well as up and down.  The control-cab is a stationary  plexi-glass box that sits centrally at the back of the crane,  suspended under it like a fat  phonebooth. The two cranes  work independently except  when the lines are being repaired and burned-through  pots replaced. At such times,  they operate in concert to  lift thc enormous burdens.  Running crane is one of thc  preferred positions in the lines  since thc cabs arc air-conditioned, insulated from the  heat and fumes. The guy who  operates this one stands against thc wall talking to the  building foreman as we approach.  "What  is   the  problem?"  Pages  from a Life-Log  Peter Trower  asks Luigi in his hesitant English.  "Stud-puller's gone blooey  again," says the craneman,  a stocky Scot with a pronounced burr. "Can't move the  bugger at all."  "Well, we takca look."  I yank on the rope that  dangles below the cab and  pull down the counter-weighted wooden-ladder. We climb  up to thc narrow side-platform  and enter the cab to check  the controls. It's just as  Scotty says. Everything  else works like a charm but  the stud-pulling mechanism is  dead as a doornail.  "Must be electrical,"  decides Luigi, "but better we  check up on top anyhow."  We scale the steel ladder  to the upper deck of the crane.  Here are the terrifying grids  through which the juice pours  to animate this rumbling  robot. Although I know the  grids are deactivated, I give  them as wide a berth as the  narrow catwalk allows.   Thev  spook the hell out of me. Everything's covered with dust.  It's the day-shift's job to hose  the cranes clean but someone's been goofing-off. Luigi  snaps on his flashlight and  makes a brief check of the  greasy carriage. Nothing  seems amiss. The trouble is  definitely in the circuits.  "You may as well go phone  the electrical shop," says  Luigi.  He retires to the cab and  switches on the air-conditioning. I climb back to the floor  and head for the nearest  phone. More often than not,  the crane-problems turn out  to be electrical but it's our  function to answer the initial  calls and ascertain this. I  call the shop and after several rings, a harried voice  answers. "Mother of God!  What's wrong now?"  I tell him. "Sounds like  you've been having a rough  night," I venture. "Figured  things were pretty quiet."  "Quiet, Hell! They've been  running our asses off in the  old lines. Okay, I'll be over."  The phone bangs down. He  really sounds ornery.  Help is on the way, however  unwillingly. The problem will  soon be out of our hands.  I'm thankful we're not working the old lines. That's the  unenviable responsibility of  the other shift-millwright and  his helper. I retrace my steps  toward the crane, sucking  rubbery air through the respirator.  Back in the cab, Luigi's  labouring over a soiled pocket-book, his lips moving  slightly as he struggles his  way through the obstacle-  course of alien words. Reading on the job is not officially  sanctioned but neither is it  expressly forbidden. I've often gone through a couple of  books in a single shift when  things were especially quiet.  The fan's working and the  plexiglass box is a hurricane's  eye of relative comfort above  the moil and clatter. "He's  coming," I say.  "Good. We wait here.  Maybe he needs a hand."  It's unlikely that he will but  this is as pleasant a place to  kill time as any and we're out  of McGraw's way.   I flop on  Mobile homes  are as important  to us as they are  to you.  Mobile homes arc playing an important role in  providing housingforBritishColumbians... and the  Mobile Home Ael has been introduced to provide  an important service to those involved in mobile  homes.  The Mobile Home Registry, a first for Canada,  has been set up lo recognize Ihe rights and protect  the interests of buyers and sellers of mobile homes.  It's similar to the Land Registry in that it acts as an  information centre that keeps a complete record  of Ihe ownership and location of all mobile homes.  Il means that all sales and changes of location are  registered to protect ownership interests. It means  that a title search can be requested toassurc buyers  ihat they are indeed getting legal title And  because il provides lenders with better  securily, it could mean better financial terms for  purchasers of mobile homes.  The Act is in effect as of April L1978. After that  date all mobile homes must be registered before  they can be sold or moved. If you're a mobile home  owner at present, or are considering becoming one  in the future, or are involved in the sale or financing  of mobile homes, you should be aware of how the  Mobile Home Act protects you. Information kits  have been sent out to all known mobile home owners  and other interested parties, but if we missed you...  let us know.  Any information you may need is available from  the Mobile Home Registry in Victoria, Regional  Offices of thc Ministry of Municipal Affairs  and Housing and Government Agents,  Province of British Columbia  Ministry of Municipal Affairs and Housing  Honourable Hugh A.

From  this vantage-point, the pots  dwindle into the distance like  an illustration of perspective  jn some otherworldly art  manual. The operational  crane is pulling studs at the  opposite end of the building.  It's like a tiny mirror-image of  this one, plucking and replacing the steel rods. This  process is not without its  hazards. Occasionally, when  the stud is drawn free from  the pitch-block, a phenomenon called a 'de fonce' occurs.  Molten metal gouts up  through the stud-hole like a  deadly waterspout, sometimes  setting the oily crane on  tire. I've seen a crane burn on  a couple of occasions. In  both cases, thc operators  escaped injury but in some  instances, they have been  trapped in their cabs and  severely burned. Even if no  one is hurt, the subsequent  clean-up and repair-work  is messy and arduous. I  hope nothing of this drastic  sort will occur tonight.  Dimly down the smoggy  vistas, I see the electrician  approaching. As he draws  close enough for me to make  out his face, I can sec he's  still in a foul mood. He's a  French Canadian called Car-  beau who worked at an aluminum-smelter in Quebec  before coming here. Usually  he's fairly congenial but  tonight something seems to  be bugging him out of all  proportion to the mere fact  of a busy shift. He's rumoured to have a pretty wife who  plays around a bit. Maybe  she's taken off with another  guy. The disproportion  of men to women in Ihe town  is acute and such break-ups  are constantly occurring.  Whatever the reason, he sure  as hell looks ornery. Tugging  down lhc ladder wilh unnecessary force, he climbs  rapidly up.  Generally in a situation of  this sort, the electrician will  check with us before going on  top but Carbeau reaches the  cab platform and heads right  on up without so much as a  word, wearing a fixed expression. "Hell with him if he  want to act bitchy!" declares  Luigi and returns to deciphering his story. I sit thinking of Helga. my new-met  fraulein with the blonde  hair and thc sexy accent. We  have a date tonight and I'm  looking forward to it. Then  I remember it'll be an early  curfew as we've got six more  days of graveyard to go.  This shift-work's enough to  drive a guy squirclly. Maybe  I'll phone in sick.  Carbeau has disappeared  from view. We can hear his  feet banging along the catwalk. Then an awful thought  strikes us both simultaneously. The fan is still going.  The power-grid is still electrified. As if in answer to our  fears there's a strangled cry  from the top of thc crane.  "Oh God!" gasps Luigi,  lunging for the main switch.  The juice drains from the  grids just as the colour has  drained from Luigi's ruddy  face. I've no doubt I'm as  pale as him. Our eyes meet  briefly in guilty disbelief.  There's no further sound from  up above, only a thick and  ominous silence.  "Oh God!" says Luigi  again and then we're practically tripping over each other  to gct out the door. I reach  the ladder first and go up it  like a stung monkey with the  Italian right behind me. 1  don't even have time to think  about being squeamish.  Twilight Theatre  The management of the Twilight Theatre marks the holiday  period with a double feature  program for the whole family.  Wednesday through Friday.  March 29 and 31. Thc program  will begin each night with the  movie Hawmps a dazzling slapstick comedy in which camels  are featured prominently, and  follow that up with the return  of the lovable Benji. The double  program will begin each scheduled evening at 7:00 p.m. Both  films are the work of producer-  director Joe Camp.  Hawmps has notable performances by the entire cast and a  broad range of comedy situations.  It should appeal to all ages. The  comedy is based on fact ���  an attempt by the American  Army to replace horses with camels for duty in the Southwest.  Camp may well have another  animal star in Valentine, a baby  camel trained by Frank Inn and  his wife. Other stars of the film  include James Hampton. Christopher Connelly, Slim Pickens.  Jack Elam. Denver Pyle, and  Gene Conforti. Even Benji makes  a cameo appearance in the film.  Il is difficult to know whether  children or adults will better enjoy the film in which Benji stars  in his own right. The film contains none of the saccarine senti-  mentality which makes so many  family shows unbearable for adults and besides the remarkable  acting talents of lhc canine star,  whose real name is Higgins, it  also features thc work of such  familiars as F.dgar Buchanan.  Patsy Garrett, and Francis Bav-  ier. Benji relies on honest humour and character development.  Shot from the dog's point of view  in Texas, its other assets include  careful production, a fine score  by Euel Box. a title song.

It's a well known astrological  fact that all forms of communications are affected by the 'backwards' motion of this planet.  Paper work left until April to be  processed will be subject to misinterpretation, delay or loss.  Please be warned.  ARIES (March 21-April 19)  Last chance now to charm your  way out of a tricky situation.  Common sense and emotions arc  in tune so upcoming decisions can  be banked on. Don't allow midweek idealism to lead you astray.  Avoid domestic bickering as  week i^IoM's  TAURUS (April 20-Mav 20)  Secret desires and speculations  can now be promoted with a more  practical approach. Close associates expect you to unravel their  financial mix-ups. Phone calls  and messages have sarcastic  undertones.  GEMINI (May 21-June 21|  Long-range hopes and plans  crystallize into clearer perspective as friends and acquaintances  bring nothing but good news.  An associate's financial discrepancy is best forgotten.  CANCER (June 22-July 22)  Grab final opportunity to exert  yourself and demand what is  rightfully yours. Those who have  been promoting personal recognition and achievements should  now expect more tangible rewards. Falling back on well tried  methods is the answer to midweek confusion on the work  scene.  LEO (July 23-August 22)  Recent philosophy and ideas  can now be organized and channelled more successfully. Long  distance communications reveal  serious but practical propositions. Those floating on a new  romance should watch out for  mid-week deception.  VIRGO (Aug.23Sepl.22)  It's you especially, Virgo, who  must have all financial, insurance  and tax matters signed, sealed  Liquid Gold  and delivered before month's  end. See to it that other people's  money problems are out of your  hair. Disagreements with recent  acquaintances are only temporary.  LIBRA (Sept.23-Ocl.23)  It's an excellent time to discuss long-range plans with loved  ones. You both see eye to eye  as common goals at last fall into  place. Direct your energy into  personal promotions, achievements, and public standing.'  Clarify confusing midweek messages.  SCORPIO (Oct.24-Nov.22)  Just because your practical and  bright ideas are being accepted  unanimously, there is no need to  unload your whole philosophy of  life onto others, especially coworkers. You now have to guard  mid-week financial activities  which are subject to losses or  deception.  SAGITTARIUS (Nov.23-Dec.2l)  Inspiration is strong again and  the accent is on creating something of lasting value. The urge  to speculate and take unnecessary risks should be controlled.  Although romance and passion  hits monthly high, your midweek mood changes will confuse  loved ones.  CAPRICORN (I)ec.22-Janl9(  Domestic rearrangements begin  to settle down as those close to  you finally accept practical considerations. After all this fuss,  don't go changing your mind.  Mid-week dreams are weird but  indicate nothing.  AQUARIUS (Jui.20-Feb.18)  You too. Aquarius, should have  all important papers processed  and delivered before the end of  the month. Warning ��� all forms of  communication will not run as  smoothly during April. Get that  car tuned up. Mid-week misunderstandings with strangers arc  not vour fault.  PISCES (Feb. 19-Mar.20)  Hopefully, you now have firmer  control of recent financial activities. Right now, checking the  location and safety of all personal  documents is time well spent.  You have lo stand up and defend  your reputation again on Wednesday.  The Sunshine Coast is the  setting for a musical production called Liquid Gold which  will be presented by the  Tamahnous Theatre Company  of Vancouver starting on Tuesday. April 4.

All in all thc  double bill should be a great  success with every member of  the family.  Thc other attraction of the  Twilight Theatre week features  the immensely popular Henry  Winkler, the star of Happy Days,  in a movie about returning Vietnam veterans. It is called Heroes  and is more of a love story than a  war story. Winkler's co-star is  the almost equally popular Sally Field. Heroes will play at thc  Twilight Saturday through Tuesday.

Books  All-time best seller  By John Moore  "Since this is my first book  review for the Coast News,"  I told the editor, "I want to  start off with a bang. I've  been reading this blockbuster  of a book. It's got something  to appeal to everybody. It's  full of disasters, fighting and  killing, sex, and the occult.  The whole ball of wax."  "Sounds   fantastic,"   said  the    editor,     "What's    it  called?"  "The Bible."  To give credit where it's  due, he didn't bat an eye. He  just said "Go to it," and here I  am, writing a review of The  Book. Well, not the book itself, exactly, but an edition of  it at least. Not that my half-  facetious remarks misrepresented the nature of the work.  The story of the Great Flood is  the all-time archetype of all  disaster and survival epics,  occurring in similar form,  right down to the use of a dove  to reconnoitre, in the Babylonian Epic of Gilgamesh and  the Greek myth of Deucalion's  Flood. It's followed closely by  the Plagues of Egypt, the destruction of Sodom and Go-  morray, & if you liked "Jaws"  you'll love Jonah. I'm not  advertising for the Book.  My point is that if you liked  "The Poseidon Adventure",  "Earthquake" and "Jaws",  it's probably because you  were exposed to the archetypes of those stories at your  first Sunday school class. Bible stories, along with fairytales, are usually the first  stories children learn and they  inevitably mold the imagination. The superheroes of  popular culture are commercialized aspects of Moses,  Joshua, Samson, and Christ  and the Bible continues to  function as a kind of invisible  Prime Source for the poets and  visionaries who both create  and criticize our aspirations  for the future.  Let me pause to state my  bias on what has always been  a sensitive subject. Faith,  or the lack of it, is ultimately  a matter of personal conscience. Religious belief is  not a subject for argument.  No amount of rational argument will persuade you to believe if you do not, nor will it  shake your faith if you do.  Still, whether one is affiliated with one of the recognized permutations of the  Judeo-Christian tradition or  resorts to one's own interpretation of scripture, however agnostic or completely  atheistic it may be, one is  obliged to have some knowledge of the Bible. An atheist  who hasn't read the Bible is a  fool. An agnostic who hasn't  read at least part of it is lazy.  An evangelist who hasn't read  it should be ashamed. By  "read it", I mean read the  most literal and authoritative  translation available, and the  commentaries or notes necessary to avoid misinterpretation of obscure or difficult  words and passages.  I stress  the word "translation".  The editions billed as "paraphrases into modern English"  are usually not worth the  trouble it takes to read them.  Paraphrase has been the  cause of enough theological  wrangling, since the ancient  Hebrew practice of not reciting direct from the text but  paraphrasing was responsible for many of the misinterpretations of the Old Testament by early Christian writers. This is a tall order, I  realize, and if adhered to  would doubtlessly reduce the  volume of discussion on the  subject considerably.  If you are not prepared to  hold your peace and are prepared for the amount of reading and thought required,  then I would suggest you pick  up a copy of The Jerusalem  Bible. It comes in a variety of  editions, but the cloth-bound  Standard Edition and the paperback Reader's Edition, at  about $12 and $6 respectively  are the most accessible. The  Standard Edition is a better  deal in the long run. It will  last much more than twice as  long as the paperback (you're  not going to breeze through  it anyway), and the introductions to the chapters and the  footnotes are more complete.  The original Bible de Jerusalem was published in French,  while the English version  was published in 1966. The  editions mentioned are by  Doubleday. The work is the  result of decades of research  conducted under the sponsorship of the Roman Catholic  Church and has been praised  by Biblical scholars and stu-  dents of every variation of the  faith, including the notoriously Hebrew scholars. According to Father Alexander Jones  the General Editor of the  work, the English translation  is not merely a translation  from the French. It was made  by returning to the original  Hebrew, Aramaic and Greek  texts, using the French  translation as a point of comparison for deciding questions  of variant reading or interpretation.  The translation, aided by  excellent typesetting, is very  readable, less tortuous  linguistically than the King  James and devoid of those  eye-straining narrow columns.  Inevitably with any translation where literal accuracy is  important, what is powerfully  poetic in one language becomes a bit tepid and mundane when literally rendered  into another. The historical  and dramatic elements fare  quite well, but the poetry of  the Song of Songs and the  Psalms lacks something in  this translation. In Psalm 23,  the old "Yea, though I walk  through the valley of the shadow of death," a powerful  line in English poetry, is replaced by the less evocative  "Though I walk through a  gloomy valley," but it seems  a small enough price to pay  when weighed against the  useful, informative introduc  tions to the books and the frequent footnotes which reveal  the editor's researches in  history, archeaology and literary criticism and bring the  text into context. Many people have an impressive "chapter and verse" knowledge of  the Bible, without having the  slightest understanding of  the context of the passages  they so enthusiastically quote.  For instance, in the First Book  of Kings, Solomon is censured  for having married many women of different non Israelite  tribes and nations, and for  building temples and offering  sacrifice to their Gods. This  seems straightforward until  the note explains that the  kingdom of Israel was a small  state, rich, since it lay at the  axis of many trade routes,  but in need of allies to protect  itself. Solomon's many marriages were contracted to  cement political alliances and  the various shrines were erected, not to promote idolatry,  but as a hospitable convenience to the number of foreign  traders in the country. From  a short footnote you learn  not only the circumstances  behind the text, but something about the writer himself; that he was religiously  conservative, interpreting  Solomon's actions in the harsher spirit of laws outlined in  Deuteronomy,  The advantage of having  such thorough historical and  archeaological research at  your fingertips is immeasurable. It makes comprehensible a collection of writings  whose impact on our culture  and civilization has been inescapably profound, but  whose obscurity is amply  testified to by the incredible  variety of our interpretations.  Not that The Jerusalem Bible  will put an end to the quibbling and confusion completely. The variety of human  nature will see to that. We'll  continue to reinterpret the  Bible, just as we continue to  squabble over the identity  of Homer and the doctrines of  Karl Marx. The Jerusalem  Bible may never settle a single theological or religious  argument but at least the protagonists will have some idea  of what they're talking about.

Slice and cover with fruit  The press has traditionally  labelled some social concerns  as "motherhood issues".  Nobody, for example, wants to  be against honesty, health or  cleanliness.  Yet the memory of some events lingers on from 1977,  and suggests that as motherhood issues, these are not  sacred after all.  Last September, Ontario's  premier William Davis led a  trade mission to Japan. He  got a rough reception. Japanese industrialists criticized  Canada for high labor costs,  strikes, foreign investment  policies ��� and for having overly strict environmental  controls.  Later, in December, newspapers reported that a breastfed baby was being poisoned  by its own mother's milk.  A variety of industrially produced chemicals which are not  found in nature, such as  PCB's and DDT, but which  are now loose in our environment, had been accumulating  in the mother's body and were  being passed on to the baby.  Other mothers were cautioned  about risks of breast-feeding.  And yet, what choice is  there? Cow's milk matches  the needs of newborn calves,  not of newborn humans. Baby  formula can supply an infant's nutritional requirements, but it must be mixed  with water from our lakes and  rivers.   That water contains  the same industrial contaminants. In fact, one study discovered that the chemicals  in the great Lakes were collecting in fish, and killing off  seagulls that ate those fish.  Gulls that lived on garbage  dumps instead of fish were  healthier.  Besides, in comparison with  breast-feeding, no formula  has yet been manufactured  that offers immunity against  common illnesses and allergies, that helps assure emotional well-being, or that contributes to higher IQ's.  If this most pure and perfect food is now hazardous  because of our environment,  could anyone argue for more  pollution?  Yes. And not just the Japanese industrialists ��� "The  wonderful people who brought  us Minimata," as Norman  Webster described them in  The Globe and Mail. Canadians did too. When Inco,  Falconbridge, and Noranda  all announced massive layoffs, a surprising number of  Canadian voices called for a  relaxation of environmental  controls, to allow the corporations a return to profitable  operations.  Fortunately, sanity prevailed. But the incidents  revealed that for some people,  the only real motherhood issue is short-term economic  gain.

Don Hadden did it againl  He has been in charge of program  and at every meeting he comes  up with a winner. Firstly it was  Dave McTaggard of Greenpeace  who told of his experiences in  Europe, sailing in the South  Pacific, and the North Atlantic,  to protest the killing of whales ���  a term which includes also the  smaller species called porpoises  and dolphins.  . Secondly we were introduced  to Ian MacAskie of Federal  Fisheries, Nanaimo, who presented a film in color, "The Way  Back", of excellent photography,  and all about the transplanting  of Sea Otters. In Nootka Sound  where Otters used to be plentiful  they were virtually extinct by  1929. The first transplant of  thritv from the Aleutian Islands  in 1972, considered an outstanding success was by the Research Vessel, G.B.Reed; with  the otter in large floating pens.  Each time Research learned  more as to why they must be  kept clean, how storms can affect them - and by acclimatizing  them before releasing, more survived, etc. They have also  received a gift of thirty Otters  from the Americans. So now at  Checleset Bay in the North Pacific, where the ecology is right,  there are 120 - 130 Sea Otters  cavorting around and by now we  hope, more. Several have also  been sighted south of Brooks  Peninsula, in a playful mood,  floating on their backs and eating  off their chests. A pelt from a  dead Sea Otter found on the  beach, was passed among us.  Such velvet and luxurious fur;  we now know how they nearly  caused a war between Britain and  the States.

The North-South  players arrived at an inferior  contract through a bidding misunderstanding. South's one no-  trump bid in this situation was  of the balancing type which can  be made with a hand in the 12 to  14 point range. North misread  the bid as showing a hand in the  16 to 18 point range and raised  to three no-trump.  On West's opening lead of the  King of Diamonds East attempted  to show his disinterest in this  suit by playing the four ��� his  lowest card. South interfered  with this signal by false carding  the eight of Diamonds. West  considered that if his partner  held the missing two of Diamonds  his play of the four would have  been the start of an encouraging  high-low signal. Therefore West  continued with a low Diamond  which South won with his jack.  South counted eight winners  and recognized that if his opponent's clubs were distributed  3-3 his fourth club could be established as the game fulfilling  trick. However that would neces  sitate the loss of one club after  which the opponents would certainly set the contract by leading  Hearts. Our South player was  aware of a deception that invariably deters opponents from  leading a particular suit against  a no-trump contract. That is,  lead the suit yourself. Accordingly, South cashed the ace of  Diamonds, entered dummy with  the ace of Spades and led a low  Heart.  East followed suit with the  seven of Hearts; South played  the Queen and West won with  the King. West cashed his good  Diamond then paused to consider  which suit to return. Put yourself  in West's position. Would you  return a Heart into South's suspected A-10. No, you would  probably lead the Queen of Clubs  as our West player did. East  attempted lo discourage by following suit with the six, but  South false-carded with thc seven. West continued with the  Jack of Clubs establishing  South's fourth Club as a winner  to give him the contract.

Sun Dispatch owners Murray Watson and Neil  McClardy and driver Mike  Standing successfully completed their Industrial First  Aid course and now hold  "C" class tickets. How they  found time to assimilate the  considerable amount of course  material and run thc cab company at the same time is one  of the minor miracles of life  on the Peninsula, but they  managed and that's the main  thing. They're now qualified  to practice a fairly complete  range of basic First Aid  techniques. (I looked at the  Manual and I'm not squeamish, but if anyone came to me  in that condition I'd need  first-aid.) Incidentally, don't  expect to see them running  around performing roadside  brain-surgery like a rerun of  an old Emergency episode.  There is a para-medic program in this province, but it's  still smaller and more restricted than anything you'll  see on T.V. The purpose of  first-aid is to prevent the victim of an accident or illness  from dying of shock or bleeding and to deliver him or her in  relatively stable condition into  the care of a qualified physician. Thc "C" ticket, plus  the Class Four Drivers'  Licence, a prerequisite for  driving taxi, makes the boys  qualified ambulance drivers  and the service should be  pretty good since Sun Dispatch has been handling the  ambulance dispatch for the  Sechelt area for some time.  In the course of various  columns, I've used the word  "cafard" several times and  the other day somebody asked  me what it meant. To the best  of my knowledge, it means,  in French, not just your com-  i ion garden variety of madness, but a special exotic form  of lunacy. As far as I know,  it was originally a slang term,  coined by soldiers of the  French Foreign Legion to  describe the madness which  descended on the men without  warning or apparent reason,  as a result of the heat, flics,  repetition, loneliness and excruciating boredom of prolonged service in Ihe desert.  Soldiers who had lhc cafard  were known to become silent  and withdrawn for a short  time, then too suddenly come  unglued, shooting up thc tort  if they could gct hold of a  weapon, or developing a  frenzied superhuman strength  that made them almost impossible to subdue. Occasionally it was necessary to shoot  them. The cafard often left  its victims in a state of semipermanent schizophrenia.  The Arabs native to the area  had known about the problem  for some time.    Their word  "amok" has entered the English language in the idiom  "to run amuck", describing  the frenzy which afflict  a man in a crowd, causing  him to violently attack his  fellow citizens without provocation. The word "cafard"  has the distinction of being  one of thc few slang words  officially admitted into thc  French language. Next week.  Urban Cafard and the Four-  wheeled variety. Until then,  over and out.  As for myself. I'm sitting  here wondering if they know  any first-aid for taxi-madness,  the dreaded Cab-Cafard. I've  been suffering a recurrent  attack of thc cafard lately.  It's like the malarial fevers of  the tropics; once you've  had it. it's subject lo tlarc up  from time to lime. That's  right, you won't see me rattling around behind the wheel  this weekend or next. I'm  on sabbatical leave to have my  nerves overhauled. 1 knew it  was coming on when I backed  out of a parking space in the  Sunnycrest Mall and creased  the fender of a parked car.  The accident wouldn't have  bothered me too much except  that it was exactly identical  to a stunt 1 pulled thc weekend  before in the parking lot of  the Maple Crescent Apartments. Neil McClardy let  out a horrible groan when I  told him I'd done it again and  told me what the first one cost  the company. That was the  first time I'd heard of Salt  in the Wound as a recognized  technique of first-aid, but  there you go. You learn  something new every day.  There were other unmistakc-  able little signs. I nearly had  my door knocked off when 1  opened it without taking a  good long look over my shoulder. What's more I was irritable and rude to lhc man  who took mc to task for it.  My apologies. I've also noticed a tendency to spend more  time drinking coffee in the  Dogwood Cafe than I do out  on the road. (In the city, drivers who're cracking up begin  by taking three and four hour  lunches.) I suspect that it's  as much spring fever as any-  , thing else. Last week I found  myself wondering. "Why  docs anyone want a taxi?  Why does anyone want to go  anywhere except down to the  beach with a flask of a favourite beverage and the words  Gone Fishing tattooed on their  foreheads? As a matter of  fact I carried Ihree moderately  lubricated young men from  the Beachcomber to the wharf  who were going to do just that.  It was all I could do to keep  from saying, "Mind if I tag  along?", but the thought of  leaving the poor dispatcher  vainly calling my number over  the radio of an abandoned  cab was too cruel  to bear.  ,    ^    ^/   ^J   \S  -^J   ���^_-'   W    ^    Y    W -��     .II.N���IIWI     I ��� ���������      ������������   !���  :\\F*t  i "Trfl ilcO'A' Sfioja  1  Besides 1 already felt guilty  for having run out of gas up  on Central Avenue, a choice  location for watching the view  of the Sound while waiting  for the Saint Bernard to arrive  with a little barrel of gas,  and for playing hookey in  the Coast News office, where I  caught the editor plotting  sonic means of legitimately  deserting his post for the  beach.

They  were often put in with the old  timers and this always made  a heat. I expect the promoters  felt we were beyond being  distracted by a pretty girl.  Well we're not shopping  but we're still looking, even  if we need glasses to see.  The procedure was to have a  split start, with us old crazies  starting first followed by the  ladies. By the second lap we  would often begin to overtake  some of these young ladies,  usually unexpectedly and  always dead in the path.

For their outstanding efforts,  the local lads received congratulations from their opponents,  the referee and many of the  onlookers.

It was a completely different learn that bleary-  eyedlv assumed their positions  on lhc soggy pitch. It was as  though Delilah had come along  in thc night and stripped ihe  Wanderers of all their strength.  Against a much less talented  Campbell River squad, thc locals  were powerless as Iheir hitherto highly successful offside trap  became a double-edged sword  that led to breakthroughs in thc  defense and a 5-0 score.

Gymkhana's  are a little different from their  English counterparts. The  horses are ridden in western  stock saddles, and most are  ridden with a curb bit or hack-  amore. One hand only must  be used on the reins in most  events and the animals run  against the clock. All of this  together makes for an extremely exciting experience  for both the horse and rider.

Four  weeks ago the President of  Guatamala officiated at the  opening of a new sixty bed  hospital.  The aims of the organization are initially to give  medical help to the needy,  which is felt to be the first  essential. From there the next  step is hygiene and then  education in family planning.  Large families are a major  problem in the poor areas.  During his six year stint  at the tent hospital he had to  contend not only with tigers,  poisonous snakes and so on.  but also the native customs.  One such custom is, while the  corn is being sown, no one  must eat, drink or kill anything or even give birth.  The fear is that if any of these  activities are carried out, then  the crop will fail.  At one planting time he  received a distraught visitor.  The woman was from the city  and was not so prone to  superstition, her sister was  in labour and was holding  the baby until the crops  were sown. She had sneaked  away in order to bring the  doctor. He and his wife went  to the sick woman.    On the  Local Guatemalan merchant receives a Vitamin B Complex shot.

Potsun City Hall was virtually demolished  during the recent Guatemalan earthquakes.  way they had to ford a river.  Before they plunged across  pital, the eye was saved and  the man's sight regained.  There is occasionally an  amusing side to working with  different cultures. When  attending to an Indian woman  one time, he asked her in  what he thought was her dialect, to open her mouth. She  didn't understand, so he tried  a different language. After  issuing the request, the room  lage of San Pedro to help the  wounded, and in one day on  a slab of concrete which was  all that was left of the settlement, he treated 218 victims. To best aid in the  disaster relief, every available doctor was called to the  city where they could treat  the largest volume of people.  The disaster was of such  magnitude that not everyone  they spotted an alligator  a toad about the size of a  duck with eyes like golf balls  and a six foot poisonous  snake. While crossing they  splashed around in the  water with a large stick,  which always had to be carried for protection. Later on  he also carried a revolver.  When they arrived at the village the woman had been  holding the baby half in for  fifteen hours and it was only  by good luck that he got  there in time to save it.  After saving the baby,  the doctor was offered a  present of some homebrew  called bock or box by the locals. He refused it, because of  the experience of another doctor who had drunk one ounce  of it and remained drunk for  two days. Every time the  doctor had a glass of water  during the 48 hours he became  intoxicated all over again.  Another time he had an  accident victim who had fallen down a precipice. The  man's eye was hanging on  his cheek and he was too  battered up to move to the  city. With the help of a friend  he managed to replace the  eye. Then having limited  facilities, did not want to  reconnect the tear duct. Until the man was strong e-  nough to be moved he had  water dropped into his eye  to keep it lubricated.

Maria, the Miller's adopted  daughter, is a perfect example of what people of their  type can achieve. She is four  years old. The doctor delivered her. At birth she had  a cleft pallet and a hair lip.  The family already had eight  children and thc father was  going blind. Her chances for  survival were negligible. The  Millers asked the parents for  permission to adopt her, and  the result is an impish little  girl who can converse in two  languages, and is having the  time of her life.  Doctor Miller accepts no  salary for his work. The  clinic manages from month  to month. They pay their  bills, but never know where  the next money is coming  from ��� it always does when  it's needed.  A good example of this is  the ambulance that was  temporarily converted into a  camper in order to save expenses on the trip up here.  Doctor Miller came in  contact with an ex-convict  who had been paroled and  was working for the benefit  of other inmates. The man  had sent out an appeal for one  hundred bibles. Wishing  to help, thc doctor sent him  a cheque for $60.00. along  with a note not to cash it for  two weeks because he would  have no money in is account  until then. Upon receipt of  the cheque the man was so  impressed that he published  it in an article. It was read  by a businessman in the States  and his wife immediately sent  a donation of $100 to the clinic. When the Earthquake  hit Guatamala she raised  $3,000 in funds. Her next  donation was the ambulance  which she knew was badly  needed. This along with a  promise that when funds  were available, the clinic  could buy any further vehicles at cost price.  The clinic is in constant  need of money. One way it is  raised is through a $12 yearly  membership. This     $12  enables someone to receive  $90 worth of medical treatment.  The children in Guatamala  don't laugh or cry very much.  Pender  Lions  The Pender Harbour Lions  will be holding another Casino  Night, on April 1 al 7 p.m. in  the Community Hall.

Lockstead reports  OVERRUNS  The Social Credit government  has issued special warrants for  overspending the budget at such  a clip this year that this bulletin  probably will be seriously out of  date by the time you read it. At  the time of writing, no less than  a total of $165 million in special  warrants (cabinet-decreed expenditures above and beyond  those in the budget approved by  the Legislature) had been issued.  Wanted to  Renf  Young working couple with 2  small dogs looking for 1 or 2  bedroom cottage in Roberts  Creek or Gibsons area.

Gift    Certificates    are  also available.  For   more   Information  call: 886-2678 or 886-7128  That alone is a record!  And there are still five weeks to  go before this avenue for cabinet  to cover overruns without Legislative consent is cut off by resumption of the session scheduled for  March 30. Normally, the weeks  immediately preceding convening  of the Legislature are the most  active for government special  warrants.  The Socreds have been noticeably silent about their mammoth  over-budget spending. (It was  the press which tallied up the  warrants issued since the budget  was adopted ��� with promises  by the government that they  would control all expenditures.)  Maybe the pained Socred silence about their record $165  million (and still growing) overruns is due to cheque writing  cramps, not embarrassment. Or  maybe they'd rather not remember their histrionic screams when  the public's need for the NDP-  introduced Mincome and Phar-  macare programs resulted in  overruns.  Because the Socred performance doesn't compare favourably  with the NDP government's  budgetary control. The highest  total of special warrants issued  by the NDP was in fiscal year  1974/75. The total for the  fall year was $135.2 million  compared with the present partial year's $165 million total for  Socreds.  But thc unfavourable contrast  doesn't stop there. Because this  year, due to the Socred switching  of B.C.Ferries and public works  buildings out of the budget  into new crown corporations, two  of the leading departments usually requiring special warrants  aren't involved. It's a bit like  comparing apples with oranges.  BLANKET BRITISH COLUMBIA  & YUKON CLASSIFIED ADS  TWO LADIES' WEAR STORES  FOR SALE: Established (for  16 years) owner wishes to retire.

If anyone  knows the story behind it we would  like lo hear it, too. Last week Deirdre  Dempster of Roberts Creek located  the tree house on North Road near the  junction of Chamberlin Road.  Can you read this?  ilylris Griffith  This article tells how well  some of our students can read.  If you arc ill ihe mood, go a-  head and read it, then come  back and see if you can ans-  were these two questions, just  foryourown interest. You will  then have your men sample ol  a "comprehension test".  1, How did B.C.'s grade 8 anc  Grade 12 students rate on thc  1977 reading tests?  A. Strong to Very Satisfactory  B. To most people's satisfaction  C. Between Very Satisfactory  and Marginally Satisfactory  D. Responding frivolously  E. I don't know  2. What is the main purpose  of this article?  A. To tell how important  reading is  B. To describe the Grade 12  reading test and its results  C. To show that people need  not be concerned about children's reading  D. To compare Sechelt District with B.C. average  E. Idon'l know  Last year thc government in  Victoria tried lo find out how  well Ihe students in B.C.  schools were learning certain  things.  First thev tackled the two  basic subjects. English and  Mathematics. They will lake  the other main subjects. Science. Social Studies, etc., in  turn, year by year. Then, the  idea is to come back to English  and Math again, and so on,  As usual. Victoria forgot to  make sure the local people  knew whai was going on, so  there was a fierce bul short  battle - - you may have read  about it al ihe time - - until  thc PLAP (Provincial Learning Assessment Programme)  was explained In most people's satisfaction.  The besl way lo find oul  how the students are doing,  they thought, is to lest them.  So. in English they gave one  lesl lo all Ihe Grade Four  children in B.C. (who arc  nmsik ten-year-olds), They  gave a different test to the  Grade h students (roughly  fourteen years nidi and one to  lhc Grade 12 population,  aged aboul eighteen,  Students did noi write iheir  nanus on lhc lesl papers, jusl  w hich school distriel .ihcy were  in. The) also gave a lew  details like: iheir age. whether the) speak English at  home, how many hours ihcy  watch I .V., etc. Whai Victoria wauled was an overall  answer m the question:  How well can our students  read?  In case vou are Ihe type who No  Survival  Gear"  laid out  turns to tiie end of a mystery just as in this newspaper or  story first. 1 will say that the any other.  One of the item's  Grade 4's did pretty well on fourteen  sentences:     "Also  their lesl:    iheir rating was aboard the plane were Lionel  "reasonable".   Grades 8 and Dobson, 42. of Rankin Inlet,  12 did not do so well compared pilot Ronald Dietz of Thotnp-  lo what should he expected at son, Man., and co-pilot Bruce  each grade level  By now you will realize that  Ihe projeel was big and complicated. Do you wish to find  out more aboul who decided  what is "reasonable" and  "expected"? The School  Board office in Gibsons can  probably give you a copy of  the whole summary.  Grade 8 and 12 students  ranged between Very Satisfactory and Marginally Satisfactory on Ihe whole test.  Many kids scored far higher,  of course,-and just as many  were lower. But Ihis was  thc B.C. average, and our  Sechell School District students'   results   were   pretty  Winslow   of   Lynn    Lake."  One    test    question    simply  asked:  WHO WAS THE PILOT OF  THE PLANE?  Ronald Dietz was. but one  out of every ten kids over the  province, one gave the wrong  answer. In Sechelt school  district, oddly this is about the  only section in which results  were not the same as the rest  of B.C. Here, two out of ten  guessed incorrectly on who  the pilot was.  Yes. they did check to see  whether some kids were playing or "responding frivolously", and some were doing  just that.   But, according to  well bang on the average for  the computer, they made up  means: a) tn-  b) considerable  dloniissihle      e)  thc province too. Here are  some examples of the questions asked of Grade 12  students.  SINCE SHE IS USUALLY  RIGHT, I DID NOT DISPUTE  HER JUDGEMENT.  "Dispute" means: a) agree  wilh b) dispense with c)  disqualify d) quarrel with e)  I don't know.  The answer is d), and whether or not you got it right,  one  out  of five Grade   12's  did not.  "Deficient"  complete  c)  intact  I don't know.  Again, if you got thc right  answer a), only 4/5 of Grade  12 in B.C. is wilh you.  Further on in thc test there  is a sample ".lob Application  Form" all set out on a big  sheet wilh spaces for 1) name;  2) address,..7) position applied lor: 8) business skills;  9) previous experience;  HI) personal interests; and all  I lie lesl. Students were  asked:  if you had been working at other jobs before applying for this  one. you would list  thi jobs you had had in  space: ?  Well, maybe you know it's  number l)| but 20% of Grade  12 did nol know it. Some of  them will he filling out job  applications soon, loo.  There are several sections  I will leave oul. Some are loo  hard lo describe in an article  and ihe resl I didn't do so  well in. myself.  I he lesl used quite a lol of  imagination, It primed an  interesting little news item  called       "(rash       Victim   :  only 0.1 %  Now why don't you glance  back and answer the two  questions at the top?  Wc can both celebrate if  you gave your first answer  as c) and your second as b).  The firs! tested "literal comprehension" ��� remembering  or finding items. The second  was aimed at "interpretive  comprehension" or what  we'd call "understanding".  Grade 12 got an article to  read called "Cultivation of the  Sea and its Present Exploitation" ��� interesting, but  with somewhat longer words  than mine. Anyway, on their  test only three-quarters  got the righl literal answers  and only two out of three  the right interpretive answers.  In other words, after reading  an ordinary run-of-the-  mill article, one oul of three  did nol understand it.  Maybe it's time we taxpayers and parents tried to  improve our understanding,  too. and figure oul how we can  help our young people to  read belter.  CLUB  NEWS  The response we have received to the information  sheet sent home through the  schools has been most encouraging. We thank all  those who have responded,  and the school staff for being  so co-operative.  The following clubs received the greatest response  to date: Outdoor Living,  Photography, Horse, Dog,  Small Engine, and there is of  course a Dairy Jersy club  already in existence. These  clubs enroll by April 1st.  Those who indicated interest  in other fields will be contacted, to verify if they have  a second choice they may  wish to pursue.  There arc other "Homecraft" clubs. (Clothing, Food,  Leathcrcraft, and others)  available, but enrollment  for these must be by January  1st. Something to consider  for 1979. Should anyone be  interested, we will circulate  pertinent information at a  more appropriate time.  We will contact everyone  personally who indicated interest in joining a 4-H Club  regarding organizational  meetings. Should there be  anyone else who may wish to  join, it is not too late just  phone Sheila Kitson at 886-  9335 or Karl Johnston at  886-2315.  The following is a more  detailed description of the  clubs.  PHOTOGRAPHY: The beginning unit for the 4-H members  arc called "Adventures with  Your Camera", they learn  how a camera works, and how-  to look after it. handling,  holding and aiming. Developing of negatives and printing  of photographs. Trips to take  pictures and some interesting  displays lo show the community the resulis. Other units  are available for more advanced club members.  DOG: Members who participate in this club learn basic-  dog care and management  including: leading, handling,  grooming and fitting. Train  the dog to obey and heel,  establish basic obedience  commands thereby become a  more enjoyable member of  the family. Acquire a knowledge of dog ownership in  thc home and community.  This is a club that members  can enjoy without having a  large piece of property, and  a large feed bill! Make Mr.  Elson's job a bit easier...  SMALL ENGINES: This club  was tried as an experiment  in Nanaimo last year, it  proved to be such a success  that the 4-H Council decided  it should be available province  wide, and judging hy the  response of local young people  it should prove to be as successful here. In the first  unit the members are introduced to Piston Power. They  learn:  The importance of small  engines in today's world.  Practice using the tools and  techniques in engine service  and maintenance. The steps  involved in operation of a  two-cycle engine. To become  familiar with carburettor  operation and chainsaw  operation and adjustment.  Sounds very interesting,  any outboard, generator,  and chainsaw engines that  need some help?  DAIRY: The objectives of the  Dairy projeel are: To learn to  select, feed and manage dairy  cattle. To become more interested in home and farm by  developing pride of ownership and love for livestock.  To learn sound practices in  breeding and management  for dairy production. To  learn inheritance factors in  dairy cattle. How milk is  produced, fitting, showing  and marketing dairy products.  A young member should  begin by raising a heifer  calf. In succeeding years  they may continue to raise  this calf as a yearling or two  year old project as well as  starting with a new calf each  year. Club members have in  previous years participated  in Chilliwack Fair and P.N.E.  open class.  OUTDOOR LIVING:  The objectives of the club are:  1. To teach 4-H members  basic skills in living outdoors.  2. To give members a  better understanding and  appreciation of the natural  resources of B.C.  Do you know how to prepare a meal on a tin can  stove, pitch a lent or which  wild plants and fruit can be  eaten?  Do you know anyone who  would be Interested in being  a leader for this club?  HORSE:    This project gives  members an opportunity to  be associated with the growth,  development and training of  a horse into a saddle horse  for work or pleasure.  The objectives of this project are: To develop good  horsemen and women while  they are enjoying the use of  their horse. To learn the  breeds of horses and their  uses. To make good management decisions related to  feed, care, health and equipment.  When a member has gained  experience with a light horse  or pony in showing al halter,  and in riding performance,  they may wish to raise a  yearling, or two year old horse  or a brood marc and foal.  How about some trail rides  and picnics as a group? Then  there's always a gymkana  with events and games.
