Array d^4  601  ^     The Sunshine  iir mt  \ V'c'  Published at Gibsons, B.C.  15* per copy on newsstands  Serving the Sunshine Coast since 1945  May 8,1979  Volume 34, Number 19  fj  \S~J  In Sechelt    >  Site sought for Regional  and School Board offices  An ad hoc committee met in the Chambers of Sechelt's  Municipal Htll on Tuesday, May 1,1979 to discuss a communal  facility which might house offices for the Sunshine Coast Regional Board, the Board of School Trustees, the Village of Sechelt  and possibly the Department of Human Resources, the Provincial Court, end other Federal end Provincial bodies. The Regional Board was represented by Secretary-Treasurer, Anne  Pressley; Area D Director, Harry Almond, who also functioned  as Chairman; and Area F Director David Hunter. Secretary-  Treasurer Roy Mills and Trustees Un Van Egmond and Bruce  Puchalski represented the School Board, while Aldermen Larry  Macdonald and Morgan Thompson represented the Village of  Sechelt.  In opening the meeting, Director Almond told the assembly  that the Regional Board's lease expires on August 1. "The Regional Board has thought," he said, "that the best way to go  is to acquire a building, but only $90,000 has been approved  for capital costs." He said that the School Board Is in a similar  position. "They have," he said, "a building (the portable  complex from Pender Harbour) and $50,000 for renovations."  He said that it had originally been thought to put the structure  on a site on the land which presently houses Chatelech Junior  Secondary School but that one of the sites would require costly  excavation. School Board Secretary-Treasurer Roy Mills said  that another site (that on which the portable offices now sit)  was level and would be suitable for a School Board Office but  not for the sort of complex under discussion, since that would  interfere with the school. Harry Almond said that the site which  is now being considered is Lot 7 which lies directly to the West  of the present Trail Bay Mall extension.  "The Village owns two or  three lots there," said Alderman Morgan Thompson.  "I think it's three." The  rest of Lot 7 is owned by  Pebble Holdings whose representative, Stan Anderson  was at the meeting. He  expressed himself as willing  to negotiate. "Do we use your  (the School Board's) building," Alderman Thompson  wanted to know, "or do we  sell and combine funds?"  "The problem Is time,"  explained Trustee Van  Egmond. "The School Board  has a building, a site and some  money, but we'd like to see  all services in a centre which  would be an anchor for the  Community." He said that  he had been very disappointed  in the quality of the presentation made by Consultant  Architect George Killick, and  Roy Mills later remarked:  "George's design used space  profligately, and still there  Please torn to page eight  Lockstead cautious  MLA Don Lockstead made  a swing though this constituency last week and expressed himself as being  cautiously confident about the  outcome of this week's  provincial election.  "Things look pretty good  in this riding," said Lockstead, "but we're taking  nothing for granted. We're  going to be working hard  right up to the federal election."  Lockstead said that provin-  cially the NDP was somewhat  behind   the   Socreds   when  wmamamjmv-mmnwm-a  See Page 15  for  Hospitality Directory  the election was called but  that there was some thought  that they had pulled almost  even with the governing party.  "The next few days will tell  the story," said Lockstead.  "We may lose some ground  because of Socred gerrymandering of the ridings."  The MLA said that there  were a number of matters  pertinent to this riding that  he Intended to work on as  soon as he got back to Victoria  "A decision must be made  about Ocean Falls concerning  modernization and timber  allocation and priority attention must be paid to highways  construction and improvement  in this area.  Lockstead also said he  was concerned about commuter cards. "They have not  Principal Tom Rothney Is in character at the Pender  Harbour Grease Day. Story and picture on Page 13.  Just a man and hit bearl Clyde the bear Is pictured after filming with The Beachcombers In Cliff Gllker Pa*..  been renewed for three years,'  said Lockstead, "and I am  concerned that the Socreds  mean to do away with them.  The local MLA pointed to a  stated NDP policy which  would allow the handicapped  and those travelling for medical reasons to go free. He also  said that groups such as Minor  Hockey groups, Brownies  afld Guides etc. would be  able, under a NDP administration to travel half-fare with 12  days notice given on midweek sailings.  "I personally would push  for such groups as these and  school groups to be allowed to  travel free during eight  months of the year," said  Lockstead.  Lockstead also said that  he would continue to work  hard for the people of this  riding whatever the government in power representing  individuals and groups.  Vandals  destroy  signs  "We don't have a clue  whose doing it," was the  response of Ken Barker of the  Gibsons NDP Office when he  was asked by the Coast News  about the reported vandalizing of Political Campaign  Signs. Mr. Barker estimates  that the NDP replaces about  6 signs daily which have mysteriously disappeared; some  have turned up in very odd  places, others have gone  completely.  Pat Perry Social Credit  Canvasser in Roberts Creek,  does not know who Is destroying signs In his area and  has had to replace his own  sign 5 times. Consequently  he has come to the conclusion  that all political signs should  be dispensed with, not only  because they invariably create  bitterness between neighbours but also because they  do nothing to enhance the look  of our beautiful area.  It would seem, though,  that during this Provincial  Campaign that it is vandals  who are responsible for all  the damage, and although  they do seem to be partial to  political signs there are  others, too, which have come  to grief.

On Fishery negotiations  Fishermen state  their concern  Ed. Notei The fallowing statement of position Is reprinted from  a brochure distributed by the United Fishermen and Allied  Workers Union and slates their cue on current Canadian-  American fisheries negotiations.  Canada has been negotiating with the United States for years  in an effort to stop U.S. interception of Canadian salmon.  Canada spends millions on fisheries management. She foregoes industrial and hydro-electric development along her  rivers and her fishermen endure stringent regulations, all to  conserve and expand her salmon resources.  The U.S. wants Canada's salmon because she has largely  destroyed her own salmon rivers, despite her efforts in recent  years to restore them through a large scale hatchery program.  By conservative estimates, the U.S. intercepts close to Ave  million Canadian salmon annually. That, by 1973 figures, is  $32.5 million worth of salmon. U.S. interception of Canadian  salmon ranges from 14 percent to as much as 45 percent of thc  total Canadian catch, with an average of 23 percent.  The situation is complicated by the fact that Canada also  intercepts salmon bound for U.S. streams. But when Canadian  interception of U.S. salmon is set against U.S. interception of  Canadian salmon, the balance is heavily in U.S. favour - at  least 2.5 million annually. That's equal to the total Canadian  catch of sockeye salmon bound for the Fraser River in an exceptional year.  Canada would be most unwise to base a treaty on the strength  of U.S. salmon runs because she has no voice in development of  U.S. salmon rivers, such as construction of dams on the Columbia River, nor over control of U.S. artificially produced hybrid  salmon, which cannot be intercepted.  Canada and the U.S. agreed in June, 1971 to certain basic  principles to govern their salmon interception talks. These  were:  ��� That each country harvest only its own salmon.  ��� That where it is not possible to avoid interception of the  other country's salmon because of intermingling, an  equitable balance should be struck.  ��� That this equitable balance should be arrived at by reducing rather than increasing interception.  The U.S. systematically set out to undermine these prenciplcs  by presenting illogical valuation schemes purporting to show  that equity already existed and by claiming "historic" rights  to harvest salmon stocks on the Fraser River, the Skeena and  the Nass.  Since 1971 Canada has steadily compromised the original  principles by retreating before U.S. demands.  Canadian negotiators have been unable to get federal government support for actions necessary to compel thc U.S. to negotiate for a treaty based on the 1971 principles.  Now Canada is prepared to write off "equity " and ' 'reduction  of interceptions by the U.S." as its goal in negotiations. The  U.S. sensing this weakness, is increasing its pressure. The  proposal Canada placed before the U.S. in February, 1974 is  similar to earlier proposals made by U.S. negotiators themselves. Even though the huge imbalance remains, Canada is  contemplating catch limits on her own fishermen.  The federal government hopes it can push thc treaty through  with the argument that Canada is losing time in proceeding with  salmon enhancement projects, although as long as the issue of  interception is unresolved, the ultimate loss of Canadian salmon  to the U.S. will be far greater.  Canadian negotiators-are going into the next round of talks  basing themselves on their version of U.S. proposals. But the  U.S. already has indicated serious disagreement with even  this most "generous" offer and is demanding still more concessions.  The alternatives are clear. Either Canada takes a strong stand  in negotiating an equitable treaty reflecting her sovereign  rights or she participates in another humiliating giveaway  of her resources, the consequences of which, like the Alaska  Boundary Treaty and the Columbia River Treaty, will be borne  by future generations. ^"\^  Teacher victim  More responsible heads prevailed, however, and Clyde, since there was a ferry to  catch...

The Social Credit party bills itself as the  party of free enterprise heroically manning the battlements against the socialist  hordes who are, once more, at the gates.  The vision they would have us accept is,  of course, simplistic and arrant nonsense.  It may not have come to the attention  yet of Bill Bennett, Bill Vander Zalm,  Pat McGeer, Bob McClelland and company, but the economy of virtually every  industrialized country in the world is a  mixed economy. A mixture that is, of  private and public ownership. It is so in  British Columbia and it will remain so  after this week's election, whichever  party wins*  Capitalism is an eighteenth century  economic philosophy first expounded  by Scotsman Adam Smith in his book  The Wealth of Nations and the free  enterprise he urged was a reaction to the  great monopolies granted by absolute  rulers to court favourites, which monopolies resulted in enormous corruption  and inefficiency. Free the businessmen,  urged Smith, and it was done. In the  ensuing two hundred years Capitalism  has brought many benefits particularly  in the area of mass production of goods  but nowhere does it now exist in an undiluted form.  It is an historic irony that the free  enterprise being urged by the Social  Credit party is largely a free enterprise  of giant international monopolies which  make the original monopolies that free  enterprise was urged against look like  miniatures. Certainly, no one who takes  a clear-headed look at the facts of the last  three years could argue that the Social  Credit party has done much good for its  traditional supporters in the small business segment of the economy. Under  their stewardship bankruptcies have  risen at a record rate. One Is compelled  to view their call for free enterprise to  be a call on behalf of the giant corporations which provide them with their  election funds.  The bankruptcies above mentioned  have been caused, we would argue, by  the fact that the government of Bill  Bennett ignored the principal economic  theorist of the 20th Century in the  Western World. John Maynard Keynes  argued that governments should spend  money in times of business slow down to  take up the slack In the economy. When  the Socreds came to power business  throughout the Western World and in  Canada was in a recession. Instead of  spending the Socreds went on an orgy of  hoarding which took hundreds of millions  of dollars out of circulation and made  things drastically worse, hence the thousands of hard-working and hopeful  British Columbians who were forced into  bankruptcy.  Their simplistic claim to be the party of  free enterprise is therefore doubly and  cynically misleading. It is misleading  in that they support the giant corporations whose monopolistic control over  segments of our economy are a major  threat to the democratic process and their  policies have made life intolerable for  many small businesses which provide  employment for the majority of the population of British Columbia.  We would argue that this is a government lacking in imagination and compassion and as such is underselling of  another term in office.  Election vandalism  We would particularly draw your attention to the excellent letter from Valerie  Tomkies of Halfmoon Bay on the subject  of the destruction of election signs  which, as usual, has been an unfortunate  part of this election campaign as it has  been in previous elections. As Ms.  Tomkies so rightly points out, the fact  that there is a choice available is the very  essence of democratic government and  the -nisguided zealots who destroy the  signs of cither party are doing no one  a service, least of all the party that they  support, if in fact they support either.  When all is said and done it is true that  the supporters of both the Socreds and  the NDP hold the convictions that they  do because they feel that the party of  their choice is the best party to govern the  province of British Columbia. As is  generally true, the combatants have more  in common than what divides them, not  least an interest in the future well-being  of this beautiful province. It is something  that the misguided vandals would do  well to remember.  from the files of Coast Nans  FIVE YEARS AGO  Coast News carries a picture of the  construction  work  being  done on  Highway 101 to eliminate the S-bends  just past the trailer court.  Sechelt village taxes are 18 mills,  the same as last year, while Gibsons  tax rate comes In at 29.83, fractionally below last year.  TEN YEARS AGO  Roberts Creek Fire Department  makes a start towards procurement of  firefighting equipment with the purchase of a fire truck from Sechelt  for the price of $1.00. Hon. Eric  Kierans, Postmaster General, writes  to say that the Roberts Creek Post  Office will not be closed.  FIFTEEN YEARS AGO  A building permit covering construction of an at least $50,000 new  Elphinstone Co-operative store on  Marine Drive was approved at Tuesday night's municipal council  meeting.  The Garbage Disposal and Collection Board selects three sites for  garbage dumps In the area. Method  to be used is sanitary landfill which  will enable the land to be reclaimed  for future use as parks.  Chairman Mrs. Whitaker of tha  Pender Harbour Recreation Commission stated at the organlzaton's annual meeting that there was a possibility of having a regional director In  the district In September.  TWENTY YEARS AGO  A move to oust the board of trustees at St. Mary's Hospital was defeated at the annual meeting of the  Hospital Society at Pender Harbour  on April 26.  A protest was registered regarding  charges being made to boats tying up  at the Gibsons Government wharf  while fishermen get free wharfage.  Les Peterson stresses the need for  an archives to house the relics of  early days still available in the area.  TWENTY-FIVE YEARS AGO  On May 1st Hill's Machine Shop  officially moved to Its new quarters  in the Chevron Station on Marine  Drive in Gibsons.  Lloyd's Store at Garden Bay will  have covered the whole rocky promontory when the new addition to the  building Is completed.

We've seen the rival  leaders declaiming on television and heard cabinet  ministers and would-be cabinet ministers wrangle on  the radio. We've listened  to the promises and the policies and collectively on Thursday we will make our collective minds up about which  party will form the government.  I trust that the readership of the Coast News is in  no doubt about where the  bias of the editor of this  paper lies. I believe that the  NDP deserves to form the next  government. There was, in  my view much to commend  their first term of office.  It was marred by the mistakes  that beginners make and  marred also by the haste  that always attends the actions of a reform party which  has been long out of office.  They tried to accomplish too  much too soon. They failed  to inform the electorate adequately of what they were  about and they paid the price  of defeat. One can safely  expect that these mistakes  will not be repeated if the  party wins power in this  election.  The knock against the Social  Credit party is that it is  essentially a party of negativity. It was born in the Thirties of a long-ago discredited  fiscal idea and has evolved  into a caretaker party which  portrays itself as being a  party of fiscal responsibility  largely because it has no new  ideas to put forward and has  not the ability to attract to  it individuals in whom the  faculty of creative thinking  is noticeably present. Everyone has been at some time or  another a member of a club,  or a board, or some form of  organization in which there  was a particular tiresome  member who satisfied himself  of his worthiness on the  grounds that only he of all  the people involved knew how  to take care of a dollar. It is  the last refuge of the closed  mind and the Social Credit  party is Its political embodiment. Bill Bennett's party  has no worthwhile ideas  so they can only cry that they  will take care of the money  well.  The party as it is now constituted is an uneasy collection of ex-Liberals, and ex-  Conservatives, and aging and  second generation Socreds  united only by the desire  to keep the NDP out of office.  For this reason I say it is a  party of negativity.  The policy it has followed is  a   policy   it   learned   from  Musings  John Burnside  Bennett the Elder. Spend  your term hoarding the public  money so that you can sqan-  der it with a lavish hand at  election time. It worked for  Bennett the Elder for twenty  years and gave the province  of British Columbia a stop and  go economy as money was alternately witheld from and  plunged back into circulation.  Is this kind of political and  economic primitivism something we can afford going into  the 1980's?  In addition to being a party  of negativism it is a party of  division. It seeks to perpetuate  the illusion that there is a  fundamental cleavage of interest between the small business men of this province and  the working men who are  their customers. It cries  out that the trade union  movement is out of control  and causing inflation even  while the headlines on the  business pages of our newspapers inform us that the  giant coporations who control  our economic life are recording profits 49% higher than  was recorded last year.  Still, we are told the unionized  worker is causing inflation  even though his wages have  been federally controlled  for the past five years.  The truth of the matter  is that the Socreds are no  longer the party which represents the small business  man in this province. The  proof of that is in the  record number of bankruptcies which have occurred  in the small business segment  of the economy during the  Socred years of power from  December 1975 until the  present time. It is now a  quarter of a century since  the successful hardware  store operator from Kelowna  became the head of the  provincial government  and in that time the party that  he headed has drifted away  from its small town merchant  identity. It is now a party of  opportunists and millionaires  and its policies while in office  have been injurious to the  working man and the small  business man alike.  So, for these good and  several reasons I personally  reject the government of Bill  Bennett and cast my ballot  and voice behind the NDP  party. They deserve another  chance  Ths Listsnsrs  "Is thereanybody there?"said the Traveler,  Knocking on the moonlit door;  And his horse In the silence champed the  grasses  Of the forest's ferny floor.  And a bird flew up out of the turret,  Above the Traveler's head:  And he smote upon the door again a second  time;  "Is thereanybody there?" he said.  But no one descended to the Traveler;  No head Irom the leai-fringed sill  Leaned over and looked Into his gray eyes,  Where he stood perplexed and still.  But only a host of phantom listeners  That dwelt In the lone house then  Stood listening In the quiet of the moonlight  To that voice from the world ot men:  Stood thronging the faint moonbeams on the  dark stair  That goes down to the empty hall,  Hearkening In an air stirred and shaken  By the lonely Traveler's call.  And he felt In his heart their strangeness,  Their stillness answering his cry,  While his horse moved, cropping the dark turf,  'Neath the starred and leaty sky;  For he suddenly smote on the door, even  Louder, and lifted his head:-  ' 'Tell them I came, and no one answered,  That I kept my word, "he said.  Never the least stir made the listeners,  Though every word he spake  Fell echoing through the shadowlness ot the  still house  From the one man left awake:  Aye, they heard his toot upon the stirrup,  And the sound of Iron on stone,  And how the silence surged softly backward,  When the plunging hoofs were gone.    Walter de la Mare  Slings & Arrows ���*  George Matthews  Provincial Conservative  leader Vic Stephens might be  a bit of a whiner but he does  have a point when he criticizes our provincial proclivity  for limiting our political  choices to two parties. Both  the Socreds and the NDP tend  to be politically doctrinaire  and as such represent views  which may not be generally  held by the average citizen. In  fact it may not be unfair to  say that our cherished ideal of  democracy is somewhat  shallow.  To run for office, a candidate must fit some fairly  narrow criteria which probably  excludes the vast majority  of citizens. So to begin with,  the largest part of the population goes unrepresented, at  least in terms of having their  peers represent them in the  legislature. The average candidate is a male, over thirty,  with at least a high school,  and probably a college graduation. The candidate is most  likely to be a businessman, a  professional or an academic.  Further, he is likely to be  successful, personally gregarious, aggressive and ambitious. If you think about it  we have just eliminated about  95% of the population from  political qualification, lhc  possibility exists therefore  that those elected to office  represent about 5% of the  people.  When we see that eligibility  for political office is limited  in the Soviet Union to the 5%  of the population who belong  to the Communist Party we  call it a sham. In Canada it's  known as democracy. What  percentage of Canadians  belong to political parties?  Less than 5%. Who is eligible  for election in Canada? Those  who are members of political  parties.  Don't get me wrong. I  haven't been a sympathizer of  Communism since I read  George Orwell when I was a  teenager. But I do suspect that  we have narrowed our vision  of political qualification to  the point where democracy is  not always being well served.  With all its weaknesses  however, our system of parliamentary democracy has one  saving feature; you the voters  can always correct their  mistake the next time around.  When a government is voted  into office which consistently  errs in judgement, becomes  arrogant, usurps the powers  of local government or passes  legislation which is clearly  in the interests of a small  group of people, then it will  be forced to suffer the humiliation of political defeat.  A government which does  not think it may be voted out  of office will ultimately lose  its sensibility and responsiveness. The power of recall  is the one control that the  people have over their representatives and while the citizens might elect a stupid  person once, they rarely do it  twice.  To get back to the problem  of two party politics, it would  be good to see a few other  views represented in the legislature. B.C. politics in particular are becoming unpleasantly  predictable. If one party wins,  the views of the opposition  are ignored for three or four  years. When the others get in,  the opposite happens. It's  getting to the point where the  people almost have to vote In  the other group at every election just to make sure the  representation gets passed  around evenly. For four  years half the population Is  left seething in frustration  while the other half basks In  the benevolent light of their  party, while for the following  term the first bunch get a  chance to make up for lost  ground.  When was the last time you  heard the party in power take  seriously a suggestion or proposal of a member of the  opposition. If an opposition  member has a really good  proposal, the reaction is either  to condemn it or to figure out  a way of making it look like  the government really thought  it up first. It would be very  refreshing to hear the government say "That's a great  idea, why didn't we think of it  first, but now that you mention it, let's do it."  Sounds strange doesn't it?  In any case, when we wake  up on Friday morning we will  have elected either the good  guys or the bad guys, depending on your point of view and  no other parties will have  representation in the legislature; no Liberals, no Conservatives, no Marxist-Leninists,  no Trotskyites, no Gay Libbers.  Good government is hard to  come by these days. That's  what makes it such a precious  commodity.  ���a  ������H  Wamaaa +iV '    ' i'V.

My subject is politics.  My action is symbolised by  the vandalism of signs supporting the candidates which  represent the major parties  contesting the provincial  election May 10th.  We have all seen these  signs, many of them on private property, torn into unre-  cognisability by "persons  unknown", presumably in  quest of partisan preferences.  I would suggest that the  Intelligence and commitment of people who do this be  questioned  by  people   who  don't - whatever their political stripe.  We should perhaps remember that we enjoy, in Canada,  in British Columbia, one of the  few remaining free democracies on earth. Surely, this is  something worth preserving?  Those who would tear down  our signs of political preference, do, by their misplaced  enthusiasm - or something  worse, God forbid I ��� impose  upon our freedom a level  of impertinence, of stupidity,  ��� albeit righteously pursued ���  which breaks ground ahead  for the emergence of what  we all fear and dread most:  a society in which freedom  of expression, of mutual disagreement, of reasoned com  promise, of love for one another above all, must fall in  the face of totalitarian  tyranny,  Let us all shout aloud  our differences for all to hear;  let us never suffocate one  voice ��� one sign - lest all be  deprived of voice to call,  eyes to perceive, ears to discern. In this context the one  who tears the opposing sign  is cousin to the killer of the  Ulster bobble, the Israeli  child, the old Man in Brazil  who voiced objection to a  General's rule.  Surely we have more sense  than this?  Valerie Tomkies  Halfmoon Bay  Government's Integrity questioned  Editor:  What price integrity?  Recent revelations by Vic  Stephens about the deal between Federal P.C.'s and the  Socreds to deny us the democratic right to vote for a Provincial Conservative raises  the question of integrity.  It precedes all questions of  ideology or point of view.  If you can't trust the party or  politician, the rest is irrelevant.  By allying themselves with  the Socreds, the Conservatives force us to remember:  1. The ICBC and Ferry increases;  2. The yo-yo sales tax from 5  to 7 to 4 percent;  3. The  (Center caper  and  Davis conviction;  4. The destruction of the Vancouver Resources Board;  5. The new Human Rights  Commission;  6. The Hydro mess;  7. The herbicide fiasco;  8. The dumping of school  costs on local tax-payers;  9. The sale of Panco to the  Americans;  10. The timber barons getting  energy and B.C. Rail service  below cost as well as new 25  year tree farm licenses;  11. The flagrant gerrymandering of election boundaries;  12. Bill 89, the Labour Code  Amendment and other union  bashing stunts.  Joe Harrison  Pender Harbour.  April 12,1979 regarding the '  questionnaire in  connection ���  with   the  fishing   industry,  my position is as follows.  I favour strict control of  foreign investment in the  fishing industry, as well as  any other Industry, to insure  maximum returns for the  Canadian people. Any company that is not prepared  to abide by government  control of foreign investment  should be nationalized and put  under democratic control.  I support the union's call  for a full investigation of  concentration of ownership  in the fishing industry.  With respect to the United  Fishermen and Allied Worker  Union being investigated  by the Restrictive Trades  Practices Commission under  the Combines Investigation  Act, I believe this action is  inconsistent with the original  intent of the Act which was to  prevent corporate price fixing.  It is imperative that this Act  be used to control monopolies not working people.  The membership of the  UFAWU are workers and as  such should be certified under  the Labour Code of Canada. If  elected I would certainly  raise the question of the prostitution of the Combines  Investigation Act against the  UFAWU.  I support the union's call  for a Canadian negotiating  position that maximizes  Canada's boundary claims and  access to stocks which would  include strong opposition  to the surrender of any part  of Dixon Entrance to the  United States. The Canadian  government has continually  retreated from the pressures  of the American negotiators  for concession. Canadian  sovereignty is not negotiable.  As a candidate for the  Communist Party of Canada,  I believe that the Issues facing  the fishing industry workers,,  are issues important to all  workers ��� the rights of workers  over monopoly interests,  jobs for Canadians, and the  protection of Canadian  sovereignty.  Because of the importance  of these issues I will be sending copies of this letter to  the press in the Comox-  Powell River constituency.  Objection  Editor:  I read in our local papers  that Coast Cable Vision Ltd.  is applying to the C.R.T.C. to  increase our cable rates by  $1.00.  I think it is time they improved the present service  and give us some value for  our money. I'm sick and tired  of having a programme  go wonky just as I get interested in it.  If others feel as I do - let's  stand up and be counted.  H.L. Carson  Langdale  Wildlife Management a ' give-away*       Submission  Editor:  The new 'Proposed Wildlife Management Plan' for  B.C. is a total give away to  the recreational hunters.  Many people may not even  be aware of the plan's existence. However, anyone who  claims to care at all about  wild animals had better make  sure that they obtain a copy.  They are available at Fish  and Wildlife Branch offices.  You may have to put your  name down to get one.  One of the aims of the new  plan is to provide a total  of two million, two hundred  and thirty six thousand hours  of 'sport hunting activity'.  Surely this is not the type  of management that we want  for our wildlife, and it must  be the responsibility of every  wildlife lover to help make  sure it does not happen.  The opportunity to rectify  this situation is available  right now. The Minister of the  Environment, the Honourable  Rafe Mair is looking for input  into this plan, don't disappoint him. Get a copy of the  'plan' and answer the enclosed questionnaire. Remember, they are your animals  too.  Barry Smallwood  President I.W.P.A.

N  T41  Deep Watering Is Beet  for Lawns and Plants  A Ven Special Little Lady  Part ID  I have no reason to regret  this decision. The almost-  twelve years that I (and  latterly, my brother Martin)  spent with my mother on the  Bay Road property, may have  had their ups and downs but  they were largely happy.  They were also artistically  productive. Initially, economic pressures compelled me  to resume logging but in  1972, I went to work for the  newly-formed Raincoast  Chronicles and was able to  devote all my energies to  writing.  My mother had, by this  time, retrieved her long-  lost manuscripts from England in company with a host  of other possessions. These  included many curios from  thc Twenties and even earlier-  treasured mementoes of dear,  distant days. The small house  became a virtual museum of  her colourful life. These  artifacts were soon to be  joined by a plethora of new  exhibits. Sometime in the  early Seventies, Mary took  up junk sculpture and with  her usual boundless energy,  turned out dozens of unique  little constructs: plaques;  hanging baskets; Malayan  tableaus with palm-trees  and rickshaws: an endless  array of vivid parrots and  other birds. She created her  sculptures with great ingenuity from such materials as  discarded candy wrappers,  feather dusters and empty  soda-pop cans. They adorn the  walls and shelves yet, like  bright shards of her personality.  My father, Stephen Trower,  was a fine artist of considerable talent and in the brief,  happy years before his untimely death, they had often  painted together. Now, at  the urging of my brother  Martin who was working in  the same medium, she also  resumed this long-dormant'  activity. She produced over  fifty watercolours and acrylics,  one of which hangs in the  Pages  from a Life-Log  Peter Trower  Gibsons Fish Market. Several  others contribute additional  brightness to the walls of  her living-room. Her favourite  subject was the Gibsons  wharf of wheh she made several   renderings   but   Mary  subsequent two years, she  wrote and published a number  of charming profiles, stories  and vignettes. They dealt  with local personalities both  past and present and more-  eiotic memories from much  painted many other scenes,  both real and imaginary. She  was extremely fond of the lone  blue heron who inhabits the  beach in front of our house,  stalking aloofly among the  smaller birds. He appears  in both her paintings and  sculptures like a recurrent  symbol.  In the winter of 1976, I  commenced this column in  the Coast News. It seemed to  inspire Mary to yet another  surge of creativity. Over the  earlier times. The positive  feedback she received from  these little pieces gave her  much pleasure and encouragement.  late last November, Mary  began complaining of headaches and having uncharacteristic lapses of memory.  This was accompanied by  weight-loss and physical  weakness. Several trips to  the doctor revealed nothing  and the symptoms were attributed to the virulent flu then  rampant in the village.  We enlisted the aid of the  homemaker-service, I took  over the cooking snd we  attempted to get her back  on her feet. Over Christmas,  she appeared to rally somewhat but early in January,  her condition began to worsen  She was admitted to St.  Mary's Hospital but several  tests still showed no organic  cause and she was discharged  after a few days.  We resumed looking after  her at home but the task grew  more and more difficult.  My mother's condition was  visibly deteriorating and she  finally became unable to  hold down her food. The  situation was obviously  beyond our ability to handle  and we had her readmitted  to St. Mary's. When further  tests still produced nothing,  she was transferred to Lion's  'Gate in North Vancouver and  the care of a neuro-surgeon.  Several days later, after running more-exhaustive tests,  he gave us the grim news.  My mother had an inoperable  brain-tumour. Her condition  was terminal.  Naturally, this black  diagnosis hit us like a ton  of bricks. I phoned Chris in  Toronto and he flew out immediately. We decided that she  must not be told. She had  made a will some years before  and direct knowledge of her  illness would serve no purpose  beyond frightening and distressing her. My mother was  returned to St. Mary's.  She had been given (barring  a miracle) about six weeks.  Gratefully we learned that  there would be little or no  pain. A drug called Decodron  was prescribed that would  relieve the pressure and keep  her condition stable for perhaps a month, allowing her  friends (and of course, Martin  and myself) to visit and pay  our respects.  It was a long month and  we lived it day by day. I  recall every visit with infinite  sadness and affection.

Fear not, as  there will be no worrying  here about mulches, black  spot or thrips. This section  will never concern Itself  with complicated things  such as soil P.H. or nitrogen  levels because I never know  what they're talking about  either. Just plan your garden  for the closest possible  proximity to your septic  field or follow a horse for  nutrients. Do pick a sunny  area and remember we are  starting late.  The first step in forming  a garden is to place your foot  on a shovel and cut a nice  sharp curved edge...a sort of  no-mans-land between grass  and flowers. Then turn all  the soil within the area flinging out all weeds, grasses  and assorted flotsam. Don't  make it too big as you can  always expand but do give it  a lovely curve. Stand back  and admire how tidy it looks  just like thst. If you are renovating Sn old garden do the  same thing but leave in the  better looking shrubs.  The next step is to visit a  gardening friend. Most gardeners are generous souls  who will be eager to assist  your noble effort by sharing  shrub and plant cuttings with  you. Ask him the height of  what he has donated, drink  your drink and hustle on over  to your local plant shop. Buy  six or eight yellow marguerites and two Snowdrop  Chrysanthemums. Rush  home, plant and soak all your  goodies. For about three  dollars you will have flowers  until frost for admiring and  picking. Soak well two or three  times a week making sure to  deep water rather than  sprinkle. Add a plant or two  a week and first thing you  know you will be expanding.  Just think: you have a garden.  You are a gardener. A couple  of hours work and a little  running around and there it  is.  mind and heart for as long  as I breathe. Ironically, under  the pressure-reducing drug,  she actually seemed to be  improving for a time. Whenever possible, we took her out  for car-rides which she appreciated with the frank joy and  wonder of a little girl. Her  speech and thinking were  sometimes confused but her  spirit never flagged. "We're  going to be famous" she'd  say "I just know we are."  at other times, her mind  would drift back to that day  almost exactly half a lifetime  ago when the doctor had  pulled her back from death  with a pint of his own blood.  "You must get in touch with  him" she'd insist. "I know  he can make me strong agin."  It was a pathetic, lastditch  hope that was no hope at all  but we couldn't tell her that.  We simply had to keep assuring her that we were trying  to contact the doctor in question, now an old man himself  and semi-retired. Towards  the end of her strength, she  began trying to tell us a story  she had never written about  a native uprising she had  witnessed as a girl but unable  to relay more than the  sketchiest details.  I won't dwell on the rest of  it. As the doctors had foretold, the Decodron started  to lose effect. She began to  sink quite rapidly and grew  progressively weaker. At  about 8.20 on the evening of  April 17, she passed away  quiety in her sleep.  And so she has been taken  from us, this dear, remarkable  person who was once little  Gem Gilman in the vanished  Malaya of another age. Her  life was not an easy one but  she always bore up bravely  through the agonies and  disappointments. A gentlewoman in both senses of the  term, she will always be  remembered fondly by those  who knew her. For we who  are her sons, she leaves a  tragic void that can never  be filled. She was a very  special little lady.  April 30,1979.  Author's Footnote!  I would like, on behalf of  my brothers and myself, to  personally thank the many  friends, both professional  and otherwise, who helped us  to weather this most difficult  time. I know my mother  thanks them also from whatever brighter plane she has  journeyed to.

We eagerly  examine biographies, autobiographies, and, when we  can, the personal diaries of  such people in the attempt to  know more intimately those  whose ideas and actions  exercise such a profound influence on our own lives.  As Thomas Flanagan says  in his introcuction to The  Diaries of Louis Riel, "Few  documents are prized by  students of history as much  as the diaries of a famous  man. They offer glimpses  of the diarist when his guard  is down, when he communes  with himself and forgets  his status as a public figure.  Such insights give us a living  sense of the man's character  and personality." In the four  known diaries of Louis Riel,  published in translation - in  one volume by Edmonton's  Hurtig Publishers in 1976,  Canadians possess just such  a document.  In the United States, great  rebels and even mere outlaws  and thugs often achieve immediate assumption into the pantheon of folk-hero demigods  by means of the popular press.  This popular mythology is  even to a large extent reinforced by history as it is taught  in the educational system.  Like the Americans, we venerate the men who explored  and settled this vast country,  yet on the subject of outlaws  and rebels Canadians display  a marked ambivalence. Most  of us, thanks to the rather dull  job made of Canadian history  in high school, know who Riel  was. We know he led a rebellion of the Metis in what is  now the province of Manitoba  in the latter part of the last  century. We know that the  rebellion was crushed and  that Riel was hanged for his  part in it. An understanding of  just who the Metis people  are, what the issues of the  rebellion were, and who, as  an individual, Riel was, has  probably escaped us.  Some of these questions  can be answered in terms, of  fact. The Metis were and are  largely French-speaking  peoples of mixed French and  Indian ancestry. In the late  19th century they inhabited;  a considerable portion of the  Northwest territories of Canada. The issue of the rebellion  was also fairly straightforward.  Ownership of the vast Metis-  inhabited territories had been  granted to the Hudson's Bay  Company and the Company's  decision to sell off large tracts  of their holdings naturally  caused concern among  the inhabitants. There was,  in addition, a religious angle  to the problem. The Catholic  Metis did not want their  territory administered by  Protestant Ontario. They  wanted provincial status and  thc degree of autonomy which  accompanied it within the  Dominion. The indifference  of the federal government  to their protests and petitions  led them to lake up arms.  Louis Riel, the young man  who rose to lead their movement, poses a knottier prob  lem for the historian. History  is made by people, so in order  to understand events it is  very useful (and, unfortunately, usually almost impossible,) to have access to the  private motivations of the  people who made them.  When all the propaganda and  press-releases have coalesced  into public mythology, when  all the official biographies  and autobiographies are into  their umteenth printing,  the private journals of such  a man, Ihe hasty scribbles  in cheap notebooks, the record  of his conversations with himself, remain thc most invaluable source of real knowledge about the man himself.  Born in the Red River  Colony, Riel's intellectual  gifts attracted the attention  of the church and at fourteen  he was sent to study at the  College of Montreal. His teachers seemed to feel that he  was destined to become the  first Metis priest. His diaries  reveal how nearly correct  they were. They consist  almost entirely of interminable prayers and religious  meditations. From them too,  we can also see how wrong  his teachers were. The notion  of the "Metis priest" obsessed Riel to the extent that  at one point during the succes-  ful part of the rebellion, he  offered the Catholic clergy  of the colony a choice; they  could join him and participate  in the new "Metis church"  he was determined to found or  they could be incarcerated.  They opposed him to a man  and Riel, good as his word  arrested them. The church  had seen only the obedient  intelligent boy in Riel. The  diaries reveal how deeply  divided against himself he  truly was. Even the obedient  Riel is devout to the point of  neurosis. In his tirelessly  lengthy prayers he asks  God's blessing for everyone  from the Pope on down  through the hierarchies of the  church, for his family, his  friends, his political confederates and finally even for  his enemies. He requests the  intercession of every order of  heaven from God, the Holy  Ghost, Jesus, Mary, ondown  to the saints on their behalf.  Beside the mania for order  and hierarchy, there is, as  Flanagan points out, his style  itself - "he was particularly  addicted to what rhetoricians  call   "Pleanasm",   that   is,  redundancy. He loved to pile  up synonyms, and he rarely  used the positive' degree of  and adjective if he could find  a way to employ the comparative or superlative." Flanagan also observes that behind  the excessive devotion and  humility, particularly his  extravagant self-condemnation for his own wildly  exaggerated sins, there lurks  pride of such magnitude that  it makes Riel's vision of himself as Louis "David" Riel,  the Metis Messiah leading  his people to both political  and religious salvation, not  at all inconsistent with his  assumed piety. Riel's religious obsession; which some  historians have attemted to  dismiss as a political ploy  to increase his power among  the Metis, is more genuine  than anyone could have imagined. His penchant for prophetic and messianic utterance is repeatedly confirmed  by the diaries. His statements  were so heretical that he  actually spent nearly two  years in lunatic asylums,  committed by his friends who  were certain he was insane.  This duality was a constant  feature of Riel's career. Able  to identify himself totally  with his people and their  cause, he did not submerge  his own ego but rather expanded it to see himself as  the personification of the  Metis movement. He incited  an armed rebellion, even intrigued to promote a simultaneous rising of the Indian  peoples, then refused to  employ Guerilla tactics  which were, as Flanagan  points out, his under-equipped and ill-trained force's  only real chance of military  success. He was politically  astute enough to have forced  the government to negotiate  with him once, yet naive  enough to imagine that they  could not even imprison, much  less execute him, without  bringing about their own  defeat.  Given Riel's florid style  the diaries are not easy to  read. Riel devotes irritatingly  little attention to the real  events of the rebellion, yet  they offer a unique insight  into the character of the man,  not as he saw himself, but as  we may now see him. It is  a fascinating and thought-  provoking self-portrait of  a leader and a rebel. ($4.95  from Hurtig Publishers).

Morton, Chief Electoral Officer,  2735 Cambie Street, Vancouver, B.C. Coast News, May 8,1979.  A feeling of belonging  Memories of a one-room school  By Maryanne West  Reading of the School  Board's proposals for multilevel instruction at Halfmoon  Bay's small one-room school  brought back memories of  a most rewarding teaching  experience.  By the vagaries of change  and upheaval resulting from  the onset of the Second  World War I found myself in  1940 in a small Somerset town  in charge of a class of 12-15  children aged 3-8 years. It  was one of these "schools"  not uncommon in Britain in  those days run by a group of  parents who wanted more  individual attention for their  children than was possible in  the state school system.  These parents ran two  schools, one for the 3-8 year  olds and another for the 8-11's  and from there the children  were expected to pass entrance examinations to a boarding school of their parent's  choice.  The two classes were quite  separate and held in different parts of town. My classroom was in a converted loft  over what many years before  had been the stables of a  large private home. We had  the use also of a spacious  bathroom and separate toilet  facilities at the end of the  bedroom wing of the house.  Entrance to the classroom  was a tiny winding stone staircase with an Alice in Wonderland door about 2Vi feet high -  there was a trap door which  lifted up so that visiting  adults could enter in the  usual manner but the children  and I never bothered to use it.  There was something symbolic, I felt, in teacher and students rising from their knees  on entering their classroom I  It was perhaps an ideal  teaching situation. Parental  demands were simple: by  the age of eight they expected  their children to be able to  read fluently, to write legibly  and coherently and to have  mastered the basic rules of  arithmetic, addition, subtrac  tion, multiplication and division. How I achieved those  ends and the rest of the curriculum was up to me. They had  advertised for and hired a teacher with a National Froebel  Union Certificate and presumed she was adequately  trained.  My previous teaching experience had been in larger  schools where the children  were graded by age, including  a never to be forgotten month  as student teacher in charge of  55 five year olds in Brixton,  a low-income London suburb,  where I never did remember  all their names as the school  population seemed to change  daily. But as all classes invariably present wide ranges of  interests, and skills both apparent and potential I don't  remember being particularly  worried by the age range in  my new job. It was far too  exciting to be on my own with  full responsibility for the  development of this fascinating group of individuals.  A  group  which included  a  3 year old with a mental  handicap, a 6 year old with a  speech problem and a 7 year  old with a slight physical  disability, as well as 4, 5 and  7 year olds at various levels  of scholastic achievement.  I decided to work around  my own version of John  Dewey's project system in  which we developed the children's interests in any given  topic. One of the most sue-  essful themes was trains.  There were still steam engines  on many of Britain's rail  systems and as the group  was predominantly male it  was a natural.  We had so much fun  learning about trains. We  collected stories, songs and  games about trains, wrote  our own stories and made up  our own songs and games.  We researched the history  of the steam locomotive,  learning about the lives of  the early inventors, made  a classroom frieze with pictures from the early experiments in  steam propulsion  through Stephenson's  "Rocket" to puffing billies  and engines like the "Flying  Scotsman", pride of the  L.N.E.R. We built a train  from wooden orange crates  and other odds and ends in  which the children could  pull each other around.  Though its proportions  were not to scale, its G.W.R.  colours were authentic  and we learnt a lot about  measurement and mathematics in its construction,  about freight and freight  rates, passenger fares and  all the interesting place names  we could choose for imaginary  trips. We weren't able to take  a trip on our branch line but  we did go down to the station  where Cyrus and David who  were the biggest were allowed  to pull the levers to signal  a train through,  I understand the fears of  parents that younger children  may cause a disruption and  take too much of the teachers'  time, but I didn't find that to  be the case. On the contrary,  children learn so quickly  from each other as every  parent watching the second  baby knows, that the younger  ones seemed to learn effortlessly  by osmosis.  In  fact  I was surprised to discover  four year old Laura had learnt  to read from listening-in  while I was teaching the 5 year  olds.  There are other advantages,  once you've established the  perameters, behaviour which  is acceptable to the basic rules  of the game. The older children will see that they are  adhered to because they do  not want to have limitations  put on their activities by a  younger child who misbehaves  After one or two aborted excursions I had no further  difficulty. The children were  always well-behaved and responsible on field trips and we  went out often to such places  as the Post Office, Library, the  store, the flour mill, the Police  Station as well as being regular visitors to the nearby  farm.  They were a happy group.  There was no bullying by the  bigger children, they basked  in the admiration of the little  ones who looked up to them  and whose ambition was to  be able to read as well, climb  as well, be as quick with  numbers, etc. They were  always graciously willing to  share knowledge or help  with  their  expertise.   Each  child was free from the competition which results from  being compared with his  peers, so he could strive  for excellence at his own  level of achievement and contribute at his own level.  We all trimphed with 3  year old Serge who had poor  co-ordination when he finally  mastered the intricacies of  his snow suit, Jan, whose  speech problem was rooted  in acute shyness, soon found  he had skills we couldn't  do without and became so  immersed in any construction  that he forgot himself and  could tell the others clearly  how it should be done. It  was some time before he could  get up in front of the class,  but that came too eventually.  In Canada we tend to  equate the one-room School  with the bad old days of the  Depression. Certainly those  schools lacked amenities  and the sophisticated equipment of today's schools, but  they may have had the  warmth, the feeling of belonging, of being an integral  part of a natural whole which  is so important in the nurture  of young minds and provided  the security from which to  grow and develop willingly  and naturally.  If your child attends a  one-room school, you're probably luckier than you realize.  MB REPORTS: The third in a series of five.  Our roots  are  deep  in  British Qlumbid  In the current five-year period  (1978-82), MacMillan Bloedel is investing an extra $700 million in B.C.  mills, logging equipment, transportation  equipment to make us able to produce more  efficiently, to deliver better products for  B.C. 's huge international markets. These  investments will help make each worker  able to produce more, keep us competitive in  the world, make B.C. jobs more secure.  MacMillan Bloedel's business is international; our roots are in B.C.  We are building a brand-new,  $163 million newsprint  machine at Powell River. We're  rebuilding four other newsprint  machines in B.C. to increase production and improve paper quality at a  cost of $32.7 million.  Our new self-propelled log barge, the  HAIDA BRAVE, was built in Victoria at a cost of $13 million. It  eliminates losses through logs sinking. Each of its cranes can pick up  4()-ton bundles of logs (about the  weight of 35 Datsuns). At Port  Alberni, we're spending more than  $73 million to build a new sawmill  and modernize our own plywood  plant.  These are just some of many  hundreds   of   improvements  MacMillan Bloedel is making to keep  our products competitive in tough  world markets.  We are an independent B.C. company, putting capital to work in this  province, where our roots are. Our  mills, plantations and production in  other provinces and countries bring  income to B.C.  nci  The HAIDA BRAVE is just one of  hundreds of investments MacMillan  Bloedel is making in B.C.

Come cry with me  By Ann Napier  Write Boi 3, c/o Coaat News  Dear Ann:  You are from time to time  writing that smoking and drinking reduce sexual performance. I wonder on what  you base this statement?  ' I've been smoking for ten  years and so far so good.  Skeptical.  Dear Skeptical:  Unfortuntely you have lots  of company. In today's  world we have lots of stress  and pressures. Many take a  break and forget their troubles  with a few minutes of nicotine,  but - Prevention Magazine  has an article In last month's  edition about smoking. It  is harder on the heart than  the lungs. The heart loves  oxygen and the cigarette  gives off carbon monoxide  and retards the blood carrying  oxygen. Then see what  happens - the brain and  heart are starved of their  life giving oxygen, the lungs  are irritated as are the sinus  and bronchial tubes. Drinking  kills vitamins - hence you  deprive your most vital organs  of their basic needs and you  are limping along through  life far from efficient, far  from feeling that well-being  that leads to energy and a  good sex life. If you put  water, even a little,  in your gas tank, each day  or week eventually, as this is  foreign to the motor and  mechanical needs of the  motor, it will weaken and rust  and here and there require  new parts, finally - fini.  So you take better care of  a car than you do of your  only body. Yes, smoking is  an enemy to sex and health  and long life. It causes cells  to cross-link and aging  occurs because the elasicity  disappears from the skin,  Large doses of Vitamin C  and E are cleansing to the  body snd could help restore  health. If you are skeptical  just stop foreign material  entering your body and soon  see the difference in the way  you feel. The body has wonderful healing powers so  can rebuild. Hope you investigate and feel the satisfaction  and well-being that can be  yours. Pot smokers lose  energy and irritate their  sinus snd suffer from bronchial coughing, so it just  behooves us to be moderate  or restrain from all these  harmful drugs. Our grandparents lived longer without  all these vices small as they  may seem. Back to nature,  what can you lose? Save your  body, sex and money.  Dear Ann:  I have a big problem.  I'm middle-aged and separated from my husband. My  teen-age son has been really  getting Into trouble. He steals  things. I don't know until  friends or police come to  me. Soon I'll hsve no friends.  He just doesn't listen to me.  His peers are into vandalism  and theft also. I feel helpless.  What can I do?  Beat  Dear Beat:  You aren't, unless you do  nothing. Talking isn't too  helpful  -  they  switch  off.  Deprive him of his vehicle -  bicycle or car - then you put  a hitch in his get-away. Many  people have rifles and are  up to using them when  they catch intruders. Most  teenagers, in poor light  or under excitement, can  give an impression of being  an adult and many teenagers  are shot, some killed. Point  out these dangers, then look  into a good camp for hiking,  riding, and other self-reliant  skills. Music gives boys  a way to relate and cuts down  on mischief. Look into "Outward Bound". It's a boy's  school with lots of excitement -  shooting rapids and many  other sports - they keep  them busy. Find out if you  can get him in and get human  resources to help you. Doing  nothing leads to jail and  a ruined life. Remove him  from his environment. Good  luck.  Dear Ann,  I like a lady that is still in  university. It will be several  years before she finishes.  My problem is, should I  wait and see if our relationship endures, as we live a ferry ride apart? Or should I play  the field, and stay less involved? Cautious  Dear Cautious,  If you have to ask should  you continue a relationship  whole-heartedly, something is  lacking. When you're in love,  you can't help yourself. You  have to see it through.  So it seems to me it's best  you find more immediate companionship. There's lots of  involvement socially and  scholastically in university,  and you may wind up just losing years and no permanent  girl. Sorry, but people  change year by year, and you  may grow apart. So proceed  and protect your feelings and  your time. Try to verbalize  your feelings, and see how she  responds. Women seldom let  go of one man until they love  another, so it's up to you.  Dear Ann,  Mother's Day is coming up.  I'm not a demonstrative person. I wonder if mothers really care about the cards and  gifts. Don't they know they  are loved all the time? What  I'm asking is, should I participate in this one-day demonstration, even though I'm  not too into this type of expression of my caring?  Doubtful  Dear Doubtful,  Well, look at this way: I'm  sure mothers know they are  loved but we all like a little  tangible token of our sons' and  daughters' thoughtfulness  and affection. Mothers treasure these gifts and show their  friends. Yes, do give your bouquets while they're here to  enjoy them. Funeral flowers  are wasted on them. Be  glad you have a chance to  show how you feel, that she's  still among us.

A catwalk joined  the structure, part of which  was built on pilings, to the  new government wharf.  The site was well chosen.

A nasty litigation developed regarding  patent rights.

West Howe  Sound dogfish became unemployed.  But not all. One fine day,  the Dougals, who had bought  the Headlands pre-emption of  George Gibson Jr., returned  home from a stay in Vancouver to find a great pile of quite  defunct dogfish giving their  yard a charmingly rustic look,  and rending unto the atmosphere what might be called  a rather heady aroma.  Attached to the door of their  home the Dougals found a  note of explanation: A nameless fisherman, having found  himself with a plethora of  dogfish, but without fresh  vegetables, had toted his treasure-trove, fish by fish, up the  beach from his boat, along a  soft uf ad hoc grease-trail, and  had left them, in the hope that  their worth would counterbalance the value of the various and sundry items he had  self-served from the garden.  Ignoring the fact that the  transaction had been obviously effected some days before, there remained one  minor problem���the LePage  Glue Factory had been hors de  combat for approximately five  years....  Well   into   the   twentieth  century, the great clear floor  space of the main building  served the district as a free  community hall, where dances, concerts, and public  meetings could be held.  In 1923, the Corlett family  divided this space into low-  rental suites. So that he could  be near the sea when the end  came, my father, cared for  by my mother, spent his last  days in one of these Corlett  apartments, still affectionately  referred to by all citizens as  "The Glue Factory".  A great pity, really, that it  was not permitted to fulfill its function. It did produce  glue of an excellent quality  during the very brief spell it  operated. The Elphinstone  Pioneer Museum has on display a dollop of this stuff,  still vigorously clinging to a  piece of plank from its vat  after these many years.  As well, as producing a  worthy product, the factory  could have offered employment for some stalwart individuals. Killing two birds, as  it were, with one stone, it  could simultaneously have  reduced the dogfish population, at sea as well as on  shore.  And, whetheror not the processed article surfaced under the LePage label, what  would it matter? A glue by  any other name would smell as  sweet.  BRITISH COLUMBIA*  BETTER SHAPE.

Proposed   sabseant   Bay   rc^ional   Beach   And  natubc  Papx  Society seeks members  By Joop Burgeijon  Last year some residents  around Sargeant's Bay formed  an Association to promote  conservation of the natural  habitat of Sargeant's Bay. At  that time the beach and the  marsh were threatened by  plans for a marina.  Now, the Society is proposing a Regional Beach and  Nature Park for the area with  a parking lot, boat launch,  washrooms, picnic area,  walking trails, waterfowl  sanctuary, view tower and a  nature house. If the area  were purchased for  public  use, it would become an  attractive park for the enjoyment of all Sunshine Coast  residents.  The Society has letters of  support from the Fish and  Wildlife Branch and Ducks  Unlimited, who will change  the marsh into a productive  breeding habitat for waterfowl. There are favourable  reports from the Land Management Branch and by  shoreline expert Wolf Bauer.  The National Second Century  Fund of B.C. and the Provincial Government have been  approached for funds.  Anyone on the Sunshine  Coast who agrees with die  Society's objectives can join  as a member. They are:  to promote conservation of  the natural habitat of Sargeant's Bay, and: to act in  the best interest of those who  wish to enjoy the rural atmo-  phere of Sargeant's Bay. The  membership fee is SS per  year.  Anyone concerned about  the future of Sargeant's Bay  and in support of the proposed  Regional Park, should contact  the Secretary, Judy Mal-  narick, P.O. Box 1562, Sechelt  B.C. VON 3A0, Phone:  885-5698.  Search for office site  continued   from   page   one  was space undeveloped."  The space requirements of  the various bodies were then  discussed, and it was stated  that the School Board required  about 3,800 square feet,  the Regional Board about  3,000 and the Village of  Sechelt about 1,000 including  space for the library. Stan  Anderson said that a new  building doesn't have to cost  $42 per square foot. "We  can't afford elaborate buildings, but we can afford a  building which would last."  He estimated that the main  floor of such a building would  cost $26-27 per square foot  with $20 per square foot for  the second floor, and that  figure was to include air  conditioning and thermo  pane windows. "Prices increase at about 1% per  month," he said. "That's the  rate of inflation."  Len Van Egmond said that  the total space requirement  would be about 8,000 square  feet if we're all to go in the  same building, and that the  portable complex with a lower  floor would leave lots of  space to share, "1 can't  get too enthused about that,"  said Alderman Thompson.  "It's going to be ticky  tacky because that's the way  it started out," said Stan  Anderson. "It's no use trying  to make a silk purse out of  a sow's ear," he continued. "I  wouldn't sell the land if that  was  going to go  on  it."  Roy Mills said that any  savings which could be made  by sharing a facility would  go to the taxpayers, but that  it was possible for the School  Board to move their building  to a site on Chatelech and  renovate it within their  budget,  "The question left  from the last meeting," he  said, "is can we put this building on a level site?" He said  that there were already  similar complexes to the one  the School Board proposes to  use on the market, a seven  module complex from Campbell River and an 11 unit  one from Salmon Arm.  "Selling is not all that easy,"  he said. "We don't want to  end up spending more money,  getting a smaller building  and having a time lag. I'm  not at all sure we can get an  extension from Gibsons."  (The School Board's lease on  the premises presently leased  from the Village of Gibsons  expires June 30.)  "With a new facade, one  wouldn't be able to tell that it  (the portable complex from  Pender Harbour) had ever  been brought in," said Trustee Van Egmond. "It's a  straight frame construction."  I really can't visualize  it. I'm sorry," said Alderman  Thompson. "Our renovation  costs would include replacing  the windows," said Trustee  Van Egmond, "since the windows in the complex were  designed for school use not  for offices. We all need to  know do we have a site,"  he continued. "In my esima-  tion, the site Stan Anderson  is offering is ideal."  "How much do we need?"  asked Alderman Thompson.  "An acre to allow for future  expansion," answered Trustee Van Egmond.  . Asked for a figure for the  proposed land swap, Stan  Anderson said, "I couldn't  even begin to tell you how  much we are looking at."  He later told Alderman  Thompson that he would give  an answer within a few days.  In answer to a question from  Alderman Larry Macdonald,  Trustee Van Egmond said  that space provided for Sechelt Village Council would  be unfinished. "The .Village  is looking at hand exchange  plus finishing the office,"  said Alderman Thompson.  "The Village is expecting to  spend to renovate anyway,"  said Alderman Macdonald.  "This is a good concept,"  remarked Director David  Hunter with reference to the  multi-use complex under  discussion, "Speaking only  for myself," said Alderman  Thompson, "it would certainly be a benefit to the  Village to have tills sort of  complex here."  "The taxpayers will lose by  not getting a common facility," remarked Trustee Bruce  Puchalski. "Can we do this  with the existing building?"  asked Harry Almond, hypo-  thetically. "I think we can."  "We need a commitment  from Sechelt," he continued.  "We have to," said Alderman  Thompson. We need a site  too." He said that a response  would be forthcoming from  Council at their meeting on  the following night.  Assurances were given that  the building would be renovated to the satisfaction of  the doubters, and Trustee  Van Egmond further reassured the gathering,  "There'll be lots of nice trees  left If I've got anything to  do with it."  At the conclusion of the  meeting alternate sites  were discussed briefly against  any possibility of negotiations  breaking down between the  Village of Sechelt and Pebble  Holdings, the group for which  Stan Anderson spoke.

The local commercial vessel owners have  been made aware of the  desire of the owners of at  least twenty other fishing  vessels who wish to locate  in this area and keep their  boats using the same moorage  space as the commercial  fleet. Pleasure boat owners  have no other recourse,  there is nowhere else to go;  and, under present regulations, there is a moral obligation on the part of the Federal  Government to allow them to  remain.  There is obviously an obligation on the part of both the  Federal, Provincial and Municipal Governments to provide for a proper, well protected, recreational craft  harbour, to eliminate the congestion problem. In this  regard, the Village of Gibsons  is wholeheartedly commended  for its initiative and has the  full support of the Commercial  Vessel Owners and Operators  committee. The offer made  by the Village to accommodate  the Commercial Vessel overflow at the proposed Marina  is very much appreciated.  Government vessels must  also use the Wharf facilities  and floats, therefore, adequate extra moorage must be  included to accommodate  them.  Fishing vessels have particular needs for special  facilities such aa net floats  and gear repair accommodation which are non-existent  here, their home port.  It is obvious that strict  anti-pollution regulations  must be enforced in such a  small harbour.

At that time, seventy-three  years ago, it was called a  talking machine.  How we children enjoyed  changing records. Carefully  we would slide the precious  object out of its mystery box  and adjust it gently on its  waiting arm.  We always stood around the  machine while it was playing.  We would not dare sit down in  the presence of such a wonder. Tune after tune rolled  merrily along as we changed  records. Our only worry  was there were so few records.  One record which I remember so vividly was "Stop Your  Tickling, Jock". "Stop your  tickling, Jock. Stop your tick-  a-Iicking, stop your tickling,  Jock".  Our musical tastes did not  reach to very dignified  heights. But as we grew older  there was a decided improvement in most cases.  James the hired man was a  popular person that winter, for  he was kept going from house  to house all of the long winter  evenings. He had a big chore,  carrying records, music box,  and the big horn ��� that  "Mystery Horn".  Every evening as James got  all set to entertain, the request was always the same.  "Please play, 'Stop Your  Tickling, Jock' ". Any latecomers to the crowd asked  for the same song, saying:  "We have not heard It since  last night over at Pat Kelly's."  And the record would be  played once more. I believe it  was the Scots comedian  Harry Lauder, who sang it.  He sang it so cheerily.  And the way he laughed at  the supposed tickling I After  the laugh, the song went,  "You   make  me  laugh  so  Margaret Slinn started  her literary career as a  young child in Ireland making up poems and reciting them to the frogs in  the flax ponds in the  fields. Born in 1900 in  Belfast, Ireland, Mrs.  Slinn was sent out to a  great aunt's farm in the  country to recover from a  long illness. It was during  this time she was introduced to the wonders of  the gramophone ��� the  "Talking Machine".  Mrs. Slinn immigrated to  Canada in 1921 along with  21 other Irish girls and a  chaperone. She settled in  Regina and finally in  Gibsons, B.C.  hearty, you fairly make me  choke".  At the end of the evening  came the same request, once  more if you please. "Jock".  That song echoed up over the  hills and along the wide sweep  of our green Irish valleys.  One evening it would be  played at poor Widow McVeigh's to cheer the poor soul.  Next evening it could be  heard in the white-washed  cot of Biddy McSorley who  was quite beside herself, so  happy she had lived past  eighty, that she might hear  the talking machine. Oh, the  wonder of it I  Of course all this hard work  on the face af poor "Jock"  was bound to cut some very  deep grooves or wrinkles as  all late nights have a habit of  doing.  Poor "Jock's" singing  condensed to a mere croak  and the hearty laugh more  like he was strangling.  There was quite a time getting records in those days as  they were not as plentiful as  they are today. We trudged  many times to our village  before our beloved "Jock"  arrived all shiny and smiling.  We had wings on our ankles  as we hurried home with  "Jock". Once more, "Stop  Your Tickling, Jock" rolled  merrily on.  Grandma was a little upset with these goings on.  She said that James was  half-asleep in the day time,  because of his wandering  around at night, with "Jock"  and his like. It just goes to  prove you cannot please  everyone.  However, I was curious to  know what "Jock", who  lived at the end of the horn,  ate.  As I was perfectly sure that  there were real live people in  the box, I got myself in a very  tight corner when caught  putting cooked potatoes down  the horn.  I wanted to make sure  "Jock" would have enough  strength to carry on.  cause greatly, rolling another   pins over average to take top  400  game,   a ' 401   single.  He also had a 302 game and  a 1626-6 game total. For the  12 games he averaged 266.  Second place went to the  'OH S..T' team of Ken  Skytte, Gwen Edmonds and  Jim Peers. Gwen rolled a 321  single and 1479 for 6.  The consolation money  went to the 'Misfits', Mike  and Laurie Cavalier and  Paddy Richardson. They beat  the second place team by  20 pins and it was a good  fight; all 12 games between  the 'Misfits' and the '2 Thorns  and a Rose' team with the  lead going from one to the  other every game. (One more  game and we would have had  them!) Other 300 games by  spot with Marion Reeves  second, 138 pins over and  Lynda Olsen third, 131 pins  over.

Celia rolled  85 pins over her average  and Hugh was 25 pins over.  The Y.B.C. Bantams had  their playoffs last Saturday  and the Peewee Champs  are Bryan Fitchell, Nadine  Olsen and Scott Husby.

Theatre Club prepares  By Kelly Henry  For the past two months  the Elphie Theatre Club has  been diligently working on  "Variety Night", which will  be held on May 17. It will be  a collection of one act plays,  mime, a one-man act, a  duologue, piano music and  singing. The plays are under  the direction of Mr, Heap,  the club's sponsor. The other  acts are from the imaginations  and talents of the actors.  Acting is only one aspect of  the club. Set designers,  prompters, costume designers, and stagehands are  some of the others involved  in theatrical productions,  although the main core of  the club consists of the actors.  They give up a great deal  of their free time after school  and weekends for rehearsals.  The thrill and challenge of  acting always compensates  for all the time spent in  practice.  Much work goes into the  play before the audience  ever sees it, such as discussion of the character,  stage moves, and finally,  character evolvement. This  part involves actually "becoming" the character; a  totally new person. This takes  imagination and a great  amount of contemplation.  When the audience sees the  actor - it's not someone  reciting memorized lines,  it's really another person,  Working in front of others  can make the players a  little nervous, but the feeling  wears off quickly because  they're enjoying themselves  too much. Most of the actors  when questioned about acting  careers were very enthu-  psvwapwv  siastic about acting.  All this creative energy  and work should make  "Variety Night" as much fun  for the audience as the actors.

The Sunshine  Second Front Page  Health and childbirth  The Junior League of Vancouver together with the Province of B.C. Ministry of  Health will co-sponsor a  Perinatal educational exhibit  in honour of the International  Year of the Child. The exhibit  will be publically displayed  in various communities  throughout the Province  during 1979.  The purpose of this exhibit  is to emphasize the need of  good health habits before,  during, and after childbirth.  The exhibit will be on display locally during the week  of May 15 to May 17 1979 at  Sunnycrest Shopping Mall,  Gibsons. Please contact  Public Health Unit at 886-2223  for further details.  Perinatal Health is preven  tative medicine. Two-thirds of  perinatal deaths are preventable and two-thirds of perinatal damage can also be  prevented.  A comparatively new medical term, perinatal health,  generally refers to the last  four months of pregnancy up  to the first week after birth.  Did you know? That the perinatal mortality rate in B.C. in  1976 was approximately 17  deaths for every 1000 births;  that Canada ranks 11th in  the world for infant mortality  rates; that for every perinatal  death, there are two or three  infants who survive but are  "perinatally damaged" in  various degrees of severity;  that the Vancouver School  Board estimates it costs nearly  8 million dollars per year for  special education of the  handicapped; that the lifetime  care and rehabilitation costs  for a severely handicapped  survivor is conservatively  estimated at $300,000 to  $500,000; that with good  perinatal care, 200 lives  could be saved in B.C. each  year; that the special education programmes for the  physically handicapped  and mentally retarded children costs from 2 ��� 8 times as  much as the basic educational  programmes for the average  student.  Some preventative measures: early identification of  high risk pregnancies; quality  of care in the hospital nursery;  approved  pre-natal  classes;  rB.A. BLACKTOP^  .

"Up With People" is an international group of young  people who are trying to bring  people closer together with  its "upbeat, exuberant stage '  show". This non-profit, cultural and educational organization is now in its tenth year.  All the people of fhe Sunshine Coast have to do,  through the various service  clubs, the schools, interested groups, and private individuals, is to guarantee  $3000, most of which should  be made from the public  performance. Already,  the Sechelt Lions have  pledged ten percent of the  cost. As well as the main  performance, the group has  developed a variety of programmes for schools, hospitals, old people's homes, etc.  So let's not allow this opportunity to pass us by.  ; "������:��>:*%������'*���  ..>-f*Kt.'-,-'���**%? ee ..*,*  Paul Lavigne and Jan Brlnton were obviously in the spirit of things at the Grease  Day in Pender Harbour last week.

Beat egg,  add sugar, oil. Alternate flour and milk In mixture  until blended.  Use either an electric griddle or frying pan set at  about 380 degrees.  After batter is In pan, wait for bubbles to cover top  of each pancake. Bubbles help make a light,  airy texture.  Check to see If the underside of the pancake is  browned by lifting the edge with a pancake turner.  If it is, turn to brown on other side. Remove it from  pan when browned to your taste. It takes less time  to cook the second side.  Place pancakes as cooked ih preheated 350 degree  oven, on a cookie sheet one layer deep. Do not  cover or they will become soggy.  Creamy Souffle Cakes  These pancakes are. very soft and creamy Inside,  almost soufflelike. They are delicious with jam or  fruit, especially berries.

"We have had enough of  government that attacks  people, that picks out doctors  or teachers or businessmen  or trade unionists for casti-  gation," Barrett said. "What  we need is government that  brings unity to the community."  The NDP leader said bring  ing business and labour together "in a balanced approach that will get both sides  working together with optimum results to the economy"  is the major goal of his party.  He released to a meeting  here copies of a letter he had  sent to the leaders in the  business community in  which he said, "Over the last  two years I have met with  a large number of British  Columbia business people  seeking their advice and  counsel. From my talks with  these people and with labour  leaders, 1 am.convinced that  it would' be very- useful to  establish an Economic Advisory Council."  No Pender  wallflowers  There was no space for wallflowers at Pender Harbour  Secondary school's Grease  Day Dance, because everyone  was jiving and whatever else  they did in the 'SO's I There  were some mighty fine slick  hairdos, cute pony tails, fancy  leather jackets, and lots of  white bobby-socks, but you  didn't have to look the part to  have a good time as I found  out.  1,021 "people dances" (calculated like "man hours")  ���vere danced by the seventy-  seven participating students  ably assisted by numerous  teachers. This, according to  informed but partisan sources,  is a world record. Perhaps Elphinstone and Chatelech  would like to challenge this  outrageous assertion? Do not  be misled, though, as the Pender Harbour Hustle, as it has  been called, is not just a simple dance marathon; you must  not dance with the same partner more than twice and if it is  an international competition,  (I.e., involving Pender Harbour, Sechelt, and Gibsons),  you must dance the majority  of dances with students from  the other schools���a sort of  cultural exchange I  The money raised at the  door paid fpr the film, Rebel  Without a Cause, starring  James Dean, which was  shown after the dance.  Seven LP's, donated by  Magic Mushroom and an  anonymous donor were given  as prizes, the names were  drawn from a hat; the more  dances you danced, the better  chance you had of winning and  the winners were: Maureen  Griffith, Dawn Adamson, Pete  Dubois.

Browning  Sometimes I get an overwhelming yen to write, and  this is one of them. Your  excellent little newspaper  contains accounts of travels  by land, sea, air, adventures  and deeds of derring do  so why not write of my early  experiences as a boy.  I spent my early boyhood  at Norfolk Island, six hundred  miles from New Zealand  and about a thousand miles  east of Sydney, Australia,  no other land near it except  Nepean Island, all rocks and  sand where we used to go  in whale-boats for Kittiwakes'  eggs, hundreds of them.  There was also Philip Island  quite barren, said to have  tians. Previously, up to the  18S0's it had been a convict  station for the worst offenders  transported to Australia.  In the 1890's the rained  prison buildings were still  there, and it waa said that  you could hear groans and the  rattling of ghostly chains if  you ventured there after  dark. I never did.  There was also a bridge  called Bloody Bridge, where  some convicts had killed their  guards and incorporated  their bodies in the cement  work of the bridge. It was said  to be haunted. My Uncle  Will O'Ferrall and Aunt  Alice swore they saw the  ghost.  I remember Queen Victoria's Diamond Jubilee  at Norfolk Island in 1897.

We lived at the Mission  Station to which boys, girls  and young men were brought  from the Solomon Islands,  New Hebrides and Santa  Cruz groups to learn about  Christianity and the three  R's. They believed and were  scared of "tamates" and  especially "tamate kurr  kurr's". "Tamate" meant  "a dead thing" and "kurr"  meant "eat", so a "tamate  kurr kurr" was a dead thing  or ghost which would eat  you right up. There was a  Tamate kurr kurr in the  tobacco plantation, so I was  told, next to our garden,  where our outside plumbing  was, so no wonder I would  never go there without my  mother however great the  urge, and sometimes attendant disaster.  The other side of the island was inhabited by descendants of the Bounty mutineers  sucking pig and yams, roasted  in an "oom", a hole in the  ground. If you never ate  sucking pig and yams roasted  in an oom you ain't lived,  chums. Afterwards at night  there were fireworks. About  a hundred So'omon Islanders  sitting on benches in the  dark. When the first rocket  went up, every one of them  ducked under his or her  bench. They thought it was  Queen Victoria's gun boats  lobbing shells at them.  Some took off for the bush.  Our way of getting about  was by the mission sailing  ship "Southern Cross",  a three masted barquentine  of 240 tons, square rigged on  the fore and fore and aft  rigged on the main and mizzen,  On a trip to Auckland we  ran into a hurricane. My  father was seasick and lost  his new dentures into five  miles deep of Pacific Ocean.  Where I was sleeping was  flooded a foot deep by a big  wave. I jumped out of bed and  just its head showing and  extracted the number of teeth  required for the financial  transaction. In fact they  made the tokens of exchange  i.e. money equal to the goods  produced which was the original formula for Social Credit.  They paid in the 1890's  six pigs or thirty shillings for  a wife, rather more if she was  a virgin. Reasonable enough  when you consider that the  human body is 83 per cent  water.

The sighting was made  by John Hobson last week. He  was out in a boat when he  saw them and managed to  get close enough to take some  slides of them. When the  slides get back I'm going to  see if I can reproduce them,  and we'll have proof positive.  He reported this sighting to  the Thursday night meeting of  the Marsh Society. Wayne  Diakow was so pleased that,  in a fit of exuberance, he gave  him a free poster. John and  Wayne headed up to Snake  Bay by boat on Friday to look  for them, but they weren't.  Others hoofed it out past Osborne's subdivision to the bay  and also came up empty-handed, so 1 hope the slides turn  out as it's the first sighting  we've heard of in this area.  Death of a Giant  Overheard on the radio  was that a nine hundred-year-  old Douglas Fir had been cut  down in the Torino area, so I  phoned up Phil Hood, the editor of The Westcoaster for a  bit more info. He had found  the story while reading the  Mac and Bio magazine, Mainline, and got permission to  reprint it.  Apparently the old fir was  found around the Kennedy  Lake area. It was the sole survivor of its peers, the rest of  the trees around being about  a hundred years old. It had  survived floods, forest fires,  and wind storms, but unfortunately it was powerless to  escape the chainsaw.  It's an eerie feeling when  you think that Richard the  Lionhearted was rallying his  troops for the Crusades when  it began its life, snd by the  time Columbus made history  by discovering the wrong way  to India, it was already older  than what we have around  here.  Club News  Last week was the last regular meeting of the Marsh  Society for the summer. The  guest speaker was Keith  Simpson from the Fish and  Wildlife Branch (great blue  heron dept.). He gave an  interesting talk and slide show  on the work that is being done  on the herons, both on the  mainland and over here. He'U  be starating banding again  pretty soon as he's spotted  quite a few herons in the Pender area that stilt hsve not  been given s number. The  ones from last year have a red  band on one leg and an aluminum one on the other. The  reason for this is so that he  can follow their movements,  so if any of you see a banded  bird and are lucky enough  to read the number, or even  if you can't get that close, give  him a call at 883-9181. It'll  help him out a lot.  There's a meeting of the  Marsh Society on Tuesday at  7:30 in Room 112 at Chatelech. This will be for the election of officers, so anyone interested in helping their  club should drop in.  Reading throught the Gibsons Wildlife Newsletter, I  see that Chris Roberts from  BCIT spent his Easter in the  snow at Panther Peak looking  around and collecting information for the three-year-old  proposal that the area be  turned into a Class A Park.  The annual fishing derby at  Sakinaw and Ruby Lakes takes  place on the 26th and  27th of this month. Those  interested should contact Fred  Holland  According to Chris Blazicevic there are many points  in the gun law regulation that  require clarification. The police were scheduled to be at  last week's meeting to answer  questions; I haven't been able  to get hold of him to see how  it went, but I hope from the  look of all the questions he  had ready for them, a lot of  necessary and useful points  were going to be cleared up.  Life is certainly becoming  complicated, and it looks as  if you just about have to be  a lawyer as well as a good  shot, to target shoot. By the  way, it's s good picture of  Harry in the cartoon.  The Rod and Gun Club in  Sechelt is taking nominations  for this year's choice for the  Gus Crucil Trophy. This goes  to the person who has done  the most for the club in the  psst year.   The cup Is now  Coast Newt, May 8,  filled, so after this year it  will be retired to a place of  honour in the clubrooms.  Pat Mulligan will be the  club's delegate to the BC  Wildlife Federation Convention in Vernon from May 9th  to the 12th.  The next trap shoot will be  on Sunday, May 20th.  There's going to be a seafood barbecue on June 17th.  Pnone Marty at 885-9858.  All tickets must be paid for  before June 14th, so I'll give  another reminder closer to  the date.  Odd. V Ends  It looks like the gypsy moth  scare in Kitsilano is being  treated in the same manner  that officialdom treats everything and the locals are  up in arms. As usual methods  other than spraying are being  looked into, now that the public outcry is great enough, and  as usual It looks from my point  1979.  15.  of view that it's been left too  late. Way to gol j  From reports that .Y. hear,  fishing is good. I beard that  a twenty-eight pounder was  hooked a few days ago in  Howe Sound. My own personal experiences in the last two  outings were a rock cod last  week, and the week before  I didn't even leave old terra  firma; instead I hung a line off  Gibsons Wharf and picked  up a dozen perch. After you  fillet, skin, and Ay the heck  out of them, they make pretty  good fish cakes.  Give me a call at 886-2622 or  886-7817 if you see anything  interesting. My home number  is 886-9151, ta.

Elphinstone Chapter No. 65 OES  took place at the Masonic Hall  in Roberts Creek. Incoming  Worthy Matron Mrs. Muriel  Eggins and her Worthy Patron  Mr. John Harrison were  Installed into office under  the very capable and impressive hands of Mrs. Bea  Rankin Past Matron as  installing officer and Mrs.  Ruth Harrison Past Matron,  who installed her husband  Mr. John Harrison into his  office. These officers assisted  by Mrs.Doris Aitchison PM  as Installing Marshall, Mrs.  Margaret Hauka PM Installing Chaplain, Eleanor  White organist, Mary Gordon  PM warder, Min Martin  sentinel, and Mary Steele PM  soloist, were the ones who  impressed upon the new  worthy matron, her officers  and members, the meaning  of this organization and the  principles for which it stands,  they could not help but realize  and pledge to do their best to  continue the many duties and  reponsiblities related to these  important causes. "Harmony-  Praying hands and'the Lamplighter" as her chosen guide  lines will certainly give inspiration to Mrs. Eggins in her  new office and she and her  officers cannot but help but  have a successful rewarding  year in office.  The gracious tribute presented for Mrs. Betty Brown  retiring Matron and her  worthy patron Mr. Ted Morrison from their officers will  bring pleasant memories in  the future. The beautiful  solo rendered by Mary Steele  PM at the end of the installation Ceremonies personified  the very spirit and meaning  of the Order and its members.  The beautifully decorated  tables in the downstairs  social room gave added enjoyment to those present, Rosebuds, purple violets and  golden lamps made an effective background. The large  cake at the end table was a  focal point of the refreshmen  hour, it had been carriei  out in the Worthy Matrons  theme and had the lovely  Praying hands accompanied  by a golden lamp as its central decoration. It was a very  proud moment for Mr. Harry  McWatters as he presented  his mother with her beautiful,  gavel and accompanied by  his friend Ray Little, (a  special friend of the family)  expressed what their wishes  for the year to come would  bring to the new Worthy  Matron. Mrs. Fran Watkins  Worthy Matron of Triumph  Chapter and Mrs. Gertrude  Shead Worthy Matron Elect  of Fraser Chapter No.  30,  along with visitors from  Naomi No. 26, Alexandra  No. 6, Princess Patricia No. 9,  Burrard No. 3, Maple Leaf No.  19, Coronation No. 81, and  many personal friends of  the Worthy Matron and her  officers spent a very happy  and memorable evening,  bringing messages of congratulations, love and best  wishes for the ensuing years,  and renewing old and new  friendships.  The officers and members  of this dedicated Chapter  are now diligently preparing  for their summer tea which is  an annual event anticipated by  all who have attended. This  and their fall bazaar is the  manner in which they donate  to those causes such as  cancer research and dressings, scholarships, and  service to their community.  We look forward to informing  the community on our activities as the year progresses,  and thank them for the support they have given the  Eastern Star these past 30  years.  Fitness is a national issue.  We call it Body Politics.  }  mXrmnmz  When you think  about it...  Under Bill Bennett's Socreds services to women have been  slashed.
