Aaaoclatlon Publicity  Committee  There has been a new development in the Sechelt Peninsula's  battle with B.C.Hydro over routing of the proposed Cheekeye-  Dunsmuir 500 Kv powerline.  In the preliminary draft of Hydro's "Special Report on the  Sechelt Peninsula Area" released to Regional Board directors  last week the power corporation recommends a new route across  the Peninsula which was not shown in any previous studies.  The new recommended route, designated "AFC" in the  report, would differ from previous proposals basically in being  several miles closer to Pender Harbour, It would cross Sechelt  Inlet in the Storm Bay area, skirt the south end of the Karin  Range to the proposed forty-acre substation near the Lions'  Park, then run around the south end of Sakinaw Lake to high  ground on the south shore of Sakinaw Bay, crossing Agamem-  mon Channel to Fearney Bluffs. From there it would run around  Quarry Bay to Cape Cockburn.  According to Hydro this new route "offers the minimum  potential social and environmental impacts, reduces the number of aerial water crossings and would cost only slightly more    The report itself recognizes  to construct than the lowest cost route." that "the crossing of Aga-  Basically, what the new route does is to eliminate the Sakinaw memnon Channel occurs in a  Lake crossing which has'drawn so much criticism to the pre- well-used boating and sport-  viously recommended route without the added expense to fishing area," but claims  Hydro of routing the line to the north along the presently-used "no significant visibility ex-  powerline right-of-way, as the Sakinaw Lake property owners posure is anticipated from the  group has recommended.

The report summarizes  "socio-economic impacts"  of the route in this way:  "segment AF encounters a  number of seldom used trails  and dirt roads to properties  along the south shore of  Sakinaw Lake. At Km 4.5  this route would pass through  an undeveloped land reserve  north of Mixal Lake which is  zoned for public and institutional use. It would then  cross a number of private  properties before reaching  to the report, "the aesthetic Agamemnon Channel.

Direct  impacts at road crossings  are not anticipated. However  the presence of a cleared  right-of-way could detract  from the recreational values  on the wilderness atmosphere surrounding these  roads."  The report does not discuss  the question of health hazards  under socio-economic effects,  but in a separate section  later in this report, makes  clear there has been no  change in the corporation's  policy of using herbicides  along the route: "following  initial clearing for construction purposes,  right-of-way maintenance  done by mechanized mobile  equipment, by hand  the use of chemical  cides".  UBC Architecture  (Students begin  ommunity study  About twenty architecture students from U.B.C. along with  two of their professors spent almost four days in Gibsons last  week doing a preliminary investigation of the village with particular emphasis on the problem of the revitalization of the core  of the older village.  During their stay the students talked to everyone in the village that they could: people in the street, businessmen, pensioners, and young people. They were billeted in several local  homes during their stay.  The four-day period climaxed on Sunday afternoon at Elphinstone Secondary School when working groups of students with  maps of the area discussed the problems of the village with  several businessmen and other residents of the village.  During the Sunday afternoon meeting the energy and interest  of all parties were very evident. Co-ordinator for the afternoon  meeting, John Burnside, thanked the students, the members of  the public and.those community-spirited citizens who delighted  the visitors with some real Sunshine Coast hospitality.  "What we are doing here," said Burnside in his brief remarks of summation and appreciation, "is beginning an investigative process. There are no facile or glib solutions. Real  solutions will take time and energy and continued applied  thought. On behalf of the Steering Committee for the Eileen  Glassford Arts Foundation and the projected relocation in Gibsons ofa structure to combine a theatre, classroom and community meeting place I would say that we see our project as being mainly a catalyst.''  On behalf of the visiting students Professor John Haaf expressed his appreciation of the treatment that they had received  and assured members of the public that a synthesis of the students' findings will be made available in the near future. Professor Don Vaughan told the Coast News that the students'  interest in the village was very high. "Every once in a while,"  said Vaughan, "a project comes along which students really get  excited about and get their teeth into. This is certainly such a  project."

A team of top administrators from Capilano College visited  the Sunshine Coast on Friday, February 18, to discuss community needs in the area of post secondary education of varying  types as well as upgrading of the educational skills of those who  for whatever reason have dropped out of school before completing their secondary education.  They met in the Parthenon Restaurant with an invited cross-  section of community leaders with the purpose of a cross fertilization of ideas. The college administrators explained what  types of courses could be offered, the source of, and types of  funding for them, and the community representatives offered  input as to what they felt the needs of the community were that  the college might meet.  A general theme running throughout the four-hour meeting  was the need to offer the young people of the Sunshine Coast  tne eclipse with anything the opportunity of continuing to train themselves while living at  other than four or five sheets nome.

Four in School Board contest  The Coast News is pleased  to report on the candidates  for the vacancy for school  Trustee resulting from Tim  Frizzell's resignation. The  election is to be held on Saturday, March 3, and further details will be printed in this  newspaper.  The Coast News asked each  of the candidates three questions: (1) "Do you think education is costing too much  money?" (2) "Do you think  teachers have it pretty easy  these days?" (3) "What is  your main concern with regard  to education in this School  District?"  Peter Bandi of Davis Bay  whose nomination was nullified for the last vacancy  (filled by Len Van Egmond)  because one of his nominees  was not resident in Area B,  is now a candidate to fill the  current vacancy. Mr. Bandi  was born in a part of Transylvania which is now under  Rumanian control. His native  tongue, however, is Hungarian, and he completed his  education at the University  of Sopron. He came to the  Sunshine Coast in 1965  where he now operates an  automotive body shop. Mr,  and Ms. Bandi have five  children ranging in age from  eleven to fifteen.  Mr. Bandi felt that he  lacked the knowledge to make  any judgement as to whether  or not education is costing too  much money. He does not  know the per capita cost, at  present, nor how it is spent.  Asked if he thought teachers had a pretty easy time of  it these days, Mr. Bandi felt  that the answer to that question was both "yes" and "no"  with the weighting being  tipped towards "yes". He  said that teaching was like  any other profession in that  there were outstanding and  dedicated members and there  were others who were not up  to par. He felt that his phil  osophy differed from that of  some of the teachers, but he  said he wouldn't be one.  Mr. Bandi was unequivocal  over his main concern regarding education in the District.  He said that only two to  three percent of students from  the Sunshine Coast graduate from university, and  he was certainly concerned  about this.  Bruce Puchalski was born in  Manitoba, but he came to the  Sunshine Coast as a young  child in 1953. He is now employed as a log grader. Mr.  and Ms. Puchalski have two  children, one now in Grade  One and another who will be  entering Kindergarten next  year.  Mr. Puchalski did not think  education was costing too  much. He thought that if  anything needed to be done, it  was not to reduce costs, but  rather to make sure the taxpayers receive good value for  their money. He didn't think  teachers had an easy time at  all, and felt that they had a  very difficult time.  Questioned with regard to  his main concern with regard  to education in this District,  Mr. Puchalski felt that the  present School Board was  doing a fine job, and said he  would like to see this continue.  He would, he said, like to encourage more community use  of schools, and he would like  to see more interaction between the various schools and  the communities they serve.  Brian Stelk was born in  Edmonton. He came to the  Sunshine Coast in 1973 and  taught at Madeira Park Elementary School for two years.  He resigned from this position  in 1975 to enable him to devote more time to the business  the family had bought there,  the Jolly Roger Inn in Secret  Cove. When the premises  burned down in 1976, he  returned to Alberta where  he  completed  his   Masters  fully neglecting a horse. The  conditions are that he may not  own a horse for that time  period and must write a  2,000 word essay on the  responsibility of pet owners.  Degree in Education. He and  his family are presently involved in rebuilding the  Jolly Roger. Mr. and Ms.  Stelk have two children, one  already in the school system,  and another about to begin.  Mr. Stelk didn't think teachers had an easy time. They  have, he said, a difficult  time,  Mr. Stelk felt that education  was costing too much in certain areas and thought that a  review of expenditure in some  areas was in order. Asked to  define the areas, he said that  the (budget) sections on auxiliary services, health fees for  example, were definitely in  need of a second look. He  expressed his concern over  the increase in the non-  operating section of the budget, which, he said, was in the  region of 47%, and he specifically mentioned dormitory  costs. He felt that it was necessary to try to exercise fiscal  restraint.

Too often, perhaps,  for anyone's good, the university lives in  a world very much of its own with no  real awareness of the problems that beset the real world beyond the ivory  towers.  In the case of the Capilano College visit  it would seem that the post-secondary  education people are intent on bringing  their products to the market, thereby  reducing real economic hardship experienced by the families of Sunshine Coast  students who seek to pursue their education. A great many dollars presently  leave the Sunshine Coast which could  remain here if students could pursue  post-secondary and upgrading work in  their local community while living at  home.  The fact that many vocational training  courses could already be provided with  one hundred percent funding from the  provincial Ministry of Education does  nothing to lessen their attractiveness.  It is understood that one hundred percent  funding for academic courses is also  Immediate steps needed  Quite simply the action of the Exxon  Corporation in diverting oil destined for  eastern Canada to the United States to  make up for shortages there caused by  the crisis in Iran is appalling. It is winter  time in eastern Canada and supplies of  fuel oil are crucially required.  The attitude of the corporation obviously characterizes the populace of  Canada as insignificant country cousins  which must be sacrificed if necessary for  the good of American citizens. Contiguous with this, of course, is the fact  of life that Imperial Oil of Canada cannot  guarantee oil supplies to this country  being in a position of being overruled by  the parent company should the parent  company decide it wants to do just that.

In the matter of the architecture students who were here in connection with  the projected Eileen Glassford Arts Foundation relocation of the structure presently located at Bachelor Bay, it was apparent from the outset that theirs  was no narrow approach of preconception. They came to acquaint themselves  with the forces that shape the village of  Gibsons and for three days they brought  fresh and fascinated eyes to the village's  problems.  Many who were skeptical of the value  of the interaction between the university  and the village were agreeably surprised  by the maturity and intelligence of the  students who were here. It was generally  agreed that the series of round the  table meetings on Sunday afternoon  were of considerable benefit to all who  took part.  Generally speaking, it is refreshing to  find the universities leaving their ivory  towers and bringing their expertise to the  people. There has long been an unfortunate gap between knowledge and its  practical application and any steps taken  to make universities functioning social  resources in the broadest and most  practical sense must be applauded.  company supplying Canada has an American-based or foreign-based parent company that could make a similar decision if  they felt so inclined.  It is time for the government of Canada  to show some courage by protesting in  the strongest possible terms about this  sacrifice of Canadian welfare, It is similarly time for the Canadian government  to take immediate steps to ensure that it  is in fact in a position to safeguard the  interests of the citizens of this country.  Anything rhort of swift, decisive, courageous action must not be tolerated. We  would suggest the Canadian people have  some searching questions to ask all the  political parties in the forthcoming federal election. Any party that is wishy-  washy in the defence of the interests of  the Canadian people should be consigned  to the trash can of history.

Musings  John Burnside  O, Canadal The news that  the Exxon Corporation, the  parent multi-national of Imperial Oil of Canada, had redirected oil destined for Canadian oil refineries to customers in the United States because of shortages occasioned  by the loss of Iranian oil is an  ominous testament of something that some of us have  been saying for a long time.  At least since the end of the  Second World War, Canadian  control of its own economy,  and thereby its own destiny,  has been allowed to dwindle  dangerously until at the present time it is virtually non-  existant.  Canada is unique in the  modern world in that it seems  to be moving from the status  of an industrial nation to that  of a third world or under-developed nation. After we have  said that we are a large  country regionally divided  and with a small population  living side by side with the  industrial giant of the United  States, we still must face the  fact that compared to Mexico,  say, where the Mexicans have  retained control of their natural resources in dealings with  the giant we have blandly  and blindly allowed the takeover of everything of value to  be found within the land's  generous contours.  Personally, I think we can  date the beginning of the loss  of selfhood as a nation from  the special relationship  William Lyon Mackenzie  King thought he had with  President Roosevelt and the  giveaway of our control over  the blessings of the country  has continued unabated for  almost the last half-century.  The Americans are our  neighbours and our friends,  we have been told, and undoubtedly it is so. They are  also demonstrably adept at  looking after number one, and  historically it is simply true  that the Liberal Party of Canada has presided over the decline of this country as a viable  independent expression of a  people's will. The last time  they came to power replacing a Conservative regime thc  major issue was whether or  not Bomarc missiles in La  Macaza, Quebec and a place  in Northern Ontario whose  name presently escapes me  should be armed with nuclear  warheads. It seemed strange  that only in these two sites in  all of Canada should nuclear  warheads and missiles be  required but the Americans  were quite forthright about it.  They wanted to have missiles  there to defend the industrial  north-east of their country.  Canadians were their front  line of defence ��� unwitting  but willing decoys. Lester  Pearson argued that we must  live up to our international  agreements and John Diefenbaker huffed and puffed in  vain.  It is not surprising that the  Americans put their own interests first. It would be surprising if they did not. It is  sad that Canada has not found  throughout most of this century a political leader or a  political party which could  reasonably do the same thing  for Canada.  The Canadian political  dilemma can be construed in  the solution the Liberals propose for the Exxon oil diversion. They are, I believe, contemplating buying oil direct  from Venezuela via their  Petrocan Crown Corporation.  Their political rivals for the  government of Canada are on  record as being opposed to  the very existence of Petrocan. So there you have our  choice: a party on the one  hand that has presided over  the country as it slipped into  the role of powerless satellite and on the other a party  that believes that we should  still put our fate in the hands  of the multi-national corporations who in Sudbury last year  and last month in the diversion of Canadian supplies to  American users have indica  ted that the best interests of  Canadians or Canada are the  farthest things from their  minds.  A statistic released recently  by the Canadian Federation  of Independent Business  tells us that nine out of ten  new jobs in Canada in 1977  were created by small businesses with less than twenty  employees. What is it, then,  that the huge multi-national  corporations who move our  coal and our iron and our oil  hither and thither throughout  the developed world give us in  return for the wealth they take  from the country and the  consequent loss of control of  our lives? If they are not providing jobs for Canadians  what are they doing for us?  Quite simply we need to  realize that we are not without  cards in this poker game of  power. WE have still vast  resources that are needed in  the modern world. We must  be prepared to bargain better  with them. As a country  Canada has acted as though  terrified that they would not  be needed, as a frightened  girl afraid of spinsterhood  we have tried too hard to  please our wooers. If this  country is to continue to be a  country we must regain control of the riches that lie within our borders. When we sell  them it must be through hard  bargaining. A leadership that  puts its faith in a mythical  special relationship and the  good will of those who would  use what we have is no leadership at all.  Canada has lived well in  the role of kept woman. She  may discover the pain of the  kept woman when the time  arrives when the keeping  comes to an end, the illusion  of security dies. If we can find  the path back to dignity and  self-reliance, however hard  the path, last week's Exxon  lesson will have been of real  value.  I'm sick to death of people  telling me how good they are.  You know what I mean;  it's an ungracious, social  custom all too common in an  uptight, neurotic economic  environment.  "When I was president of  the Spuzzum Lions Club in  1973, I guided my membership into a monumental  decision that shook Western  Civilization".  "Oh! That's nothing,  when I was secretary-treasurer of the Knights of Columbus  in Peoria, Illinois in 1963,  we rounded up enough votes  to condemn American Involvement in Vietnam."  "Yeh, but how many people  do you know won the furniture salesman's 'Man of the  Year' award for the whole  North West B.C. Zone two  years in a row?"  "Look, not only was I the  fastest typist ever in Golden  Secondary School, but I  had the highest bowling  average in the Ladner industrial league in 1958."  What ever happened to  modesty, humility and respect for others? I know these  virtues are out of fashion but  there is no reason to have to  put up with conceited windbags and bloated braggarts.  I can't point to any one  event in the past few weeks  that has put me off, but I  have noticed a low level,  ubiquitous over-confidence  among people lately. More  people lately have just seemed  to think it is more important to  tell more people how much  more they have to offer than  others. It could be that this  has always been so, and I've  just noticed these displays of  vanity. Keep your ears open  for the next little while and  see for yourself if it's true or  not.  I'm not talking about a  good healthy self-confidence  either. To feel good about  yourself is important. If you  don't like yourself, then  for sure no one else will.  There are few more charming human qualities than a  sense of your own worth and  place. The sort of thing I'm  talking about is the almost  pathological need to remind  others of every petty triumph  and every minor virtue instead of allowing people to  discover these graces for  themselves.  Why people have the urge  to tell others of their own  triumphs and virtues, I don't  know. Perhaps we are all the  victims of high pressure salesmanship. Maybe we are so  dominated by the hard  sell that we feel obliged,  to sell ourselves like so many  vacuum cleaners or used cars.  It's a fact that a quality  product sells itself and the  more personal salesmanship  going on, the more suspect  one is of the value of the  product.  On the other hand, maybe  in an uncertain environment  and a competitive job market,  people feel obliged to let  others know what they have  done, what they are doing,  and what they will do in the  future. Even the most humble  of job opportunities practically  demands a resume these days.  These outlines of your qualities and experience are little  more than brag sheets and all  too often the job will go to  the person who brags the  most.  Of course it could be just  a simple matter of living in a  more and more crowded  world and having to do a little extra to stand out from  the crowd. There's not much  a person can do these days to  catch the attention of others  except constantly remind  people how good, how  different, how special, how  wise, how beautiful, how decent, how pleasant he is.  When there are so many people who are all of these  things, it becomes difficult  to get yourself noticed.  More likely however,  bragging stems from the need  to be accepted. With so many  people sounding off about  themselves, a normally modest person can lose confidence, begin to feel inadequate. He becomes a victim of  the vanity explosion, as it  were. After all, conceit is awfully insensitive. Every time  you sound off to make yourself seem better, you make  some other more sensitive  person feel less adequate. It's  good to keep in mind that  every time someone says out  loud that he is really quite  wonderful, he is really saying,  "Look, I'm not too sure of myself today, and I would just  like you to respect me for a  while until I get my own sense  of security back."  Of course, if the bragging  goes on, then you've probably  got an insecure neurotic on  your hands.  I guess the lesson is not to  get carried away with our own  self-importance and to be sensitive to the conceit of others.  But if someone close just can't  seem to keep his or her mouth  shut, then what he/she might  really need is a good kick in  the behind.  I think continually ���������  / think continually of those who were truly great.  Who, from tha womb, remembered the soul's history  Through corridors of light where tha hours are suns,  Endless and singing. Whose lovely ambition  Was thai their lips, still touched with tire,  Should tell ol the spirit clothed from head to loot  In song.  And who hoarded Irom the spring branches  The desires falling across their bodies like blossoms.  What Is precious Is never to lorget  The delight ol the blood drawn from ageless springs  Breaking through rocks In worlds before our earth;  Never to deny Its pleasure In the simple morning  Light,  Nor Its grave evening demand for love;  Never to allow gradually the traffic to smother  With noise and fog the flowering ot the spirit.  Near the snow, near the sun, In the highest fields  See how these names are feted by the waving grass,  And by the streamers ol white cloud,  And whispers ol wind In the listening sky;  The names of those who In their lives fought lor life,  Who wore at their hearts the fire's center.  Born ol the sun they traveled a short while towards  the sun,  And left the vivid air signed with their honor.

It may onjy be  February but time is most  precious to those involved  with Timber Days.  As it stands we have four  people who have committed  themselves to being a part of  the organizing committee.  What we need from your  newspaper is an extra special  push to help advertise our  upcoming meeting and recruit new faces. Last year we  found recruiting new faces a  difficult task. With only a  handful of volunteers we were  able to organize a very successful Timber Days. Just  think of the success we could  attain if a few of your readers  could be persuaded to help.  I cannot promise fame or  fortune to those willing to  help but I can promise them  one of the most rewarding  experiences of 1979.  So any considerations given  this letter would be appreciated. In closing, our meeting is  on February 22, 1979 at 7:30  p.m. in the Sechelt Village  Office. I thank you in advance  for your co-operation.

CAULK-BOOT LEGACY ���  logging Poetry In B.C. Put II  I am obliged to say something about my own logging  poetry at this point but will  endeavour to be as brief and  objective as possible. It serves  to bridge the gap between the  old and the new, much as my  actual woods-career did. I  wrote my first logging poem  in the late fifties, an eminently forgettable epic called  The Rangltang Road. It was  jingly derivative doggerel of  thc most banal sort. As I  fumbled my way into the craft,  I fell under the influence of  numerous writers: Thomas,  Cummings, Roethke, Kerouac, Kesey ��� the list is  extensive. At the same time,  I continued to work in the  woods and slowly deepen my  insights. I began to view the  camp as a microcosm where  men were subjected to stresses and risks that often paralleled the conditions on a battle-field. I became for a time,  foolishly ashamed of my  woods background and dabbled in obscure surrealist  verse that brought me little  satisfaction and less fame.  Out of desperation, I began to  write directly from experience again. In nineteen  seventy-one, I made some sort  of minor breakthrough with a  logging poem called Grease  for the Wheels of Winter  that was accepted simultaneously by Poetry (Chicago) and a major text-book  publisher. My collection of  iogging verse: Between the  Sky and the Splinters finally  saw print in nineteen seventy-  Pages  from a Life-Log  Peter Trower  four, ine reviews were generally encouraging and a documentary film of the same title  was subsequently produced by  the C.B.C. in both French and  English.  Patrick Lane who wrote the  introduction to my first woods  book is certainly one of the  best poets in Canada today.  His   honest,   powerful   work  transcends fads and schools;  is widely respected by many  disparate   groups.   Lane   is  no stranger to the  chokers  and has worked on numerous  logging shows  in  the  B.C.  Interior. He has limned these  experiences  in  a variety of  highly-successful poems. His  work  is  not  for  the  fainthearted or weak-stomached.  Lane pulls no punches.  He  knows  exactly  what   makes  loggers  and   other  working  men tick and he imparts this  understanding in a tense raw  style,   perfectly   controlled.  He hails from a background of  hardtimes and tragedy.  His  older brother Red Lane, also  a poet of great talent, died of a  brain haemorrhage at twenty-  eight   with   his   best   work  unwritten. His father was the  victim of a senseless shooting  in the family's hometown of  Vernon.    But    Lane    never  stoops to self-pity.  He  has  managed to channel creatively  all the anger and pain. His  best work is included in such  collections  as   Passing  Into  Storm, The Sun Has Began to  Eat the Mountain, Bewan the  Months of Fire and Unborn  INCOME TAX SERVICE  p located at  CONFIDENTIAL  BUSINESS SERVICES  SEA-VIEW PLACE   GIBSONS  Personal &  Small Business Returns  886-9636  Things.  The aforementioned David  Day has produced the only  other book of "pure" modem  logging poetry outside my  own. It is a tour-de-force  called The Cowichan that  impressed me when I first  read it and impresses me still.  1 remember thinking selfishly,  when I first saw the manuscript, that it was a damn good  thing I'd published mine first.  But there is ample room for  both collections since Day  goes at it from a quite different tack. Our woods-backgrounds are similar. We both  served several years as rig-  ging-slingers, a sort of straw-  boss for the chokermen and a  thankless stint at the best of  times. Day's stuff is dead  authentic and captures with  effortless skill, the truth of  what the trade is all about.  Frequently assuming the  voices and viewpoints of old  time loggers he has known, he  crafts his material with  vigour and understanding.  Mad high-riggers piss gleefully on the crew from fresh-  topped spartrees; an incredible family of logging brothers  share clothes, funds, liquor  and women; a calloused veteran tells of the murderous  days before safety-regulations  when they threw dead choker-  men behind stumps and kept  right on yarding. It's wild,  gruesome, wonderful stuff.  Charles "Red" Lillard  hails from the farthest frontiers of logging on the Alaska  Panhandle. His earliest mentor was an old lady who  lived alone in a ghost town.  She encouraged his intrinsic  love of literature and loaned  him books from her extensive  private collection. That has to  be a pretty unique way for  anyone to get started in the  writing game and Lillard,  happily, has not disappointed  his reclusive friend. Over the  years he has developed his  skills to a high level. Red has  worked at many logging-  camps in both Alaska and  B.C. between teaching stints  at various universities. His  books Cultus Coulee and  Drunk on Wood, reflect this  influence. He uses his logging  experiences as kick-off points  to profounder investigations  and is perhaps the most  "intellectual" poet of our  small coterie. But this is by no  means to disparage his accomplishments. Such powerful  poems as "Boshed" describe  memorably the price that  wilderness work often exacts  from the men who undertake it.  Tom Wayman is no logging  poet, God knows, and would  be the first to admit it. His  considerable talents range  over other ground. But he has  spent many years on the B.C.  coast and is well aware of the  genre. In his recent anthology,  A Government Job At Last, he  devotes a good part of one  section to this branch of the  working idiom. Apart from  several of the people already  mentioned, he includes a  number of other poets who  have used the woods as a  source of inspiration. M.C.  Warrior contributes some  powerful poems based on his  sidehill experiences as do  Brian Brett and Robert Garrison. Even Wayman himself  presents a humorous piece  entitled "Logging Friends"  that lampoons in a good-  natured way, the whole gung-  ho business.  The future of logging poetry  appears a bit bleak. The trade  itself is becoming automated,  overgroomed,' oversafe and  polite. The cowboy romance of  it all has damn near flickered  out. We must proceed to other  themes like pollution and  outerspace. Time blunders  on leaving one more random  pocket of written experience  behind.  In the fall of 1978, a radically revised edition of Splinters was published under the  title: Bush Poems. It contains  much new work and is pro-  EXTENDED HOURS  MOTOR VEHICLE  OFFICE SECHELT  Mon.

As expected, reactions were mixed.  A couple of members, who did  not complete ballots, found it  tedious and they left before  the conclusion. Reactions  received so far, however, were  overwhelmingly    favourable.  In the meantime, I hope  that many members will be  looking foward to the marvellous Jaques Tati film,  Mr. Hnlot's Holiday. This  was Tati's second feature film  made in 1953, and in it Jaques  Tati introduces his second comic character, Mr. Hulot. He  adamantly refused all inducements to cast his first, the  gangling postman Francois, of  Jour de Fete (1949), as a married man. No sequel was forthcoming, and films featuring  Mr. Hulot subsequent to  Mr. Hulot's Holiday were  made entirely on Tati's terms.  Mr. Hulot is less farcical  than is Francois, but he is  equally an outsider and disrupter of everyday life. The  following comments concerning the first Mr. Hulot film  are taken from Roy Armes  French Cinema since 1946.  I urge you, however, if you  have not seen Jaques Tati,  don't believe me or Roy  Armes ��� come and see this  supremely talented mimic  artist for yourself. If you can  tell me you've sat through the  film without smiling, write to  me and I'll refund the price  of your admission.  fusely illustrated by the formidable logging artist, Bus  Griffiths.  "In repose, Hulot is a normal enough type, pipe-smoking and solidly middleclass,  with a battered old car that is  the counterpart of Francois'  bicycle, but his gait marks  him out as an oddity and sets  him off from those around  him. Les Vacances follows the  same pattern of construction  as the previous film. The action is enclosed between shots  of the arrival of Monsieur  Hulot and the other guests  at their holiday hotel and their  departure a week or so later.  The early scenes built up the  atmosphere of the hotel and  the sleepy seaside resort  which the presence of Hulot is  to disturb. Among the guests  is a pretty girl, Martine, who  attracts Hulot's attention,  but nothing comes of their  relationship despite a few  clumsy and tentative advances  on his part. Most of the other  guests and the staff are alienated by Hulot's behaviour  but he does win the support  and affection of the children  and of the solitary little man  who spends his entire holiday  walking just a few paces  behind his domineering  wife."  This film can be seen next  Tuesday, February 27, at the  Twilight Theatre commencing  at 9:00 p.m. The Film Society's presentations are for  members only, and members  must be over eighteen in order to comply with the terms  of the Motion Picture Act.  Admission is $3.00 per film.  If you are not already a member, membership costing  $1.00, may be purchased from  the ticket cashier when you  pay your admission.  Brian Stelck 0  SCHOOL TRUSTEE  AREA 'B'  VOTE MARCH 3rd!  By Rae Ellingham  Week commencing: Feb. 19.  General Notes: The February  26 Eclipse of the Sun takes  place in Pisces. This sign of  the zodiac rules the sea, oil,  chemicals and anything pertaining to water. Hence, sensationalist, gloom-and-doom  astrologers (like myself)  are predicting such catas-  trophies as tidal waves, flood-  ings, burst dams and the most  serious oil shortages of the  century. Because the effects  of an eclipse are not usually  felt immediately, it may be a  few weeks or months before  these events occur.  Babies born on February  26 will be emotional, sympathetic and inspirational.  Many may become great, independent thinkers. A few  will become prominent and  famous.  Meanwhile, for the rest of  ui the effect of the eclipse  wi be to recharge our minds  and bodies for the months  ahead. The following prognostications indicate in which  areas this new vitality will be  felt.  Anyone observing the eclipse should wear approved  viewing aids.  ARIES (March 21-Aprll 19)  Looks like you'll have to  take yourself out of circulation sometime this year.  Eclipse points to withdrawal,  seclusion, solving problems  alone. It's an excellent opportunity for mystical or spiritual discipline. You may be  called on to take care of the  sick or the lonely. Any chronic  health upset will receive the  best attention.  TAURUS (April 20-May 20)  This could be the year you  realize your hopes and wishes.  Eclipse focuses on long-  range plans and the start of  new projects. Involvement in  group activities brings new  friends and acquaintances.  It's time to join other clubs or  societies and enjoy change of  scene. Emphasis will be on  sharing skills and talent.  GEMINI (May 21-Jnne 21)  You have to come to terms  with who you are and where  you are going. Eclipse brings  attention to one's position in  the world. This is the year to  assess achievements and rate  of advancement. Personal  disappointments must be  overcome with fresh courage  and determination to succeed.  Positive approach brings promotions, raises and benefits.  CANCER (June 22-July 22)  This  could   be   the   year  Its Spring Again!  WfLCOMEBACK  Beachcombers  are back !  1971 -1979    at the Reach!  Now seen around the world in England, Scotland, Ireland, Luxembourg, Austria, West Germany, Malaysia, Singapore, New Zealand,  Australia, Jamaica and the Bahamas.  you take that extended journey. Eclipse focuses on people  and places far away, longdistance communications,  fresh starts in remote areas.  There's a desire to broaden  the mind, acquire knowledge  and brush up skills. Universities and places of learning  figure strongly. New philosophical attitude may emerge.  LEO (July 23.Aug.22)  Solar eclipse emphasizes  other people's money and possessions. Partner's financial  position and earning capacity  are due for change. Personal  matters linked to tax, insurance, alimony and long-  term' loans will need fresh  approach. It's time to re-  channel cash or savings into  more productive areas. Inheritances, legacies, figure  strongly.  VIRGO (Ang.23-Sept.22)  For the remainder of the  year, all partnership matters  will assume great importance.  Eclipse points to new philosophy regarding marriage,  alliances, contracts and public dealings. Upcoming  agreements will have far-  reaching consequences. Those  born around September 1  have to accept extra responsibilities on behalf of others.  LIBRA (Sept.23-Oct.23)  Prepare for new attitude  toward employment or health  matters. Eclipse hints at  change of occupation or job  location. Enthusiasm for new  health programmes, keep-  fit schedules, better eating  habits increases during the  next few months. This is the  year to re-assess physical,  mental and personal well-  being.  SCORPIO (Oct.24-Nov.22)  Looks like it's time for a  change of social scene.  Eclipse urges you to seek new  sources of pleasure, amusement and entertainment.  This may be the year you take  the biggest gamble of your  life. Romance, risks, speculation and love are inevitable.  Buy a lottery ticket on the  26th (don't forget who told  you I).  SAGITTARIUS (Nov.23-  Dec.21)  Accent is on domestic  changes. Eclipse emphasizes  need for reorganization of  family structure or household  routines. Looks like many of  you will be changing residence during the next few  months. Those involved in  land or real estate speculation must prepare to try new  approach. The affairs of parents require more attention  this year.  CAPRICORN (Dec.22-Jan.19)  Your ability to communicate  now becomes clearer. Eclipse  says you know what you  want and how to get it.  You'll amaze others with your  decisive mental outlook.  All short distance contacts ate  highlighted. Prepare for an  increase in local journeys,  visits, phone calls and correspondence. Hold on to positive feelings.  AQUARIUS (Jan.20-Feb.18)  Focus is on personal possessions and money. Eclipse  urges you to get your financial affairs in order. Expect  radical change in attitude towards money and ownership  during the next few months.  Prepare to take banking, savings and investments more  seriously. Many of you will  start to plan for the uncertain  years ahead. A fool and his  money are soon parted.  PISCES (Feb. 19-Mar.20)  The Solar Eclipse falls in  your sign (at 7 degrees Pisces)  indicating major changes In  personality, appearance, habits and mannerisms. This is  the time to project bold, new  image onto the world. At last,  die-hard idealists may begin  to question once-fashionable  convictions.

I'd also recommend it to anyone interested in the history of  England and Scotland or of  their own families, since an  astonishing number of North  Americans bear surnames of  the great reiving families of  the Borders. The "border"  referred to is, of course, the  Anglo-Scottish border, and  the plurality of the designation "Borders" is a cany-over  from the days when the area  was divided into six "marches"; three on each side of  the line, ' administered by  three Scot? and three Englishmen, each of whom, as Warden of his. March, was responsible for maintaining law and  order in his section of an area  which contains some of the  most beautiful and desolate  scenery in Britain. These  Wardens held regular meetings with their opposite numbers to1 resolve any legal issues that arose from crimes  committed in one country by  nationals from the other.  It all sounds quite reasonable and, for the times, rather  well-organized, until one considers the Borders record of  almost three hundred years of  uninterrupted local and international strife. Responsibility  for the failure of "The Border Law" lies to some extent  with the inhabitants of the  Borders themselves. Popular  literature, from the beautiful  and melancholy "Border  Ballads" to which English  literature owes so much, to  modern pulp historical romances, has portrayed the  Borderers as gallant, courageous, and bold, driven by  circumstance to a life of noble  outlawry. Bold they might be,  and courageous on many  occasions, but their chivalry,  if it can be so called, was of  the kind that knocks on your  door in the middle of the night  to tell you they're about to  burn your house down and  was probably motivated by a  desire to get a clear shot at  you.    ,  The Borderers, and often  the Wardens themselves,  who often came from Border  families for whom the War-  denry was a quasi-hereditary  office and family business,  devoted, a vast proportion of  their energies to the simple  country pastimes of rustling,  robbery, kidnapping, blackmail, house-burning, pillage  and deadly feud. Organized  loosely along clan lines, like  the Mafia and many of the  outlaw gangs of the Old West,  the major "riding families"  of the Borders, the Armstrongs, Elliots, Scotts, Kerrs,  Grahams, and Carletons,  could put three-to- five hundred riders, armoured with  "backs and breasts" and  armed with lances, longbows,  pistols and swords, surmounted by the characteristic  "steel bonnet" helmet,  into the field on very short  notice; enough to daunt the  most intrepid Warden. Yet  many of the Wardens, Borderers themselves, were far  from daunted and organized a  "hot trod" (a posse to follow  a fresh trail in the hope of  catching the villains with the  goods) on the spur of the moment and, as often ss not,  actually succeeded in capturing or killing some of the  guilty parties (resisting  arrest was standard procedure) and recovering the property in spite of overwhelming odds.  The keeping of law and  order assumes new proportions as Fraser explains that  the Wardens and the riders  were usually locally recruited  and, given the Borderers'  penchant for intermarriage  and strong clan ties, it was  virtually impossible to avoid  situations in which Borderers  were required to hang, arrest  and even kill their own relatives in the name of the law.  The law did not always win  out, in fact was lucky to break  even, when the Wardens  themselves could be at feud  with the families of their own  officers.  Some superficial historians  have characterized the Border  conflict as a simple matter of  Scots-English national animosity and racial hatred, but it is  significant that one of the  most knotty problems confronting the Wardens was the fact  that many of the larger and  most troublesome riding families had chapters of the clan  on both sides of the Border  and members would jump the  Border at will, claiming Scots  nationality when pursued by  the English and English nationality when harried by the  Scots. The Wardens' meetings, intended to resolve such  problems, were attended by  large numbers of armed and  interested parties from both  sides and not infrequently  erupted into pitched battles.  Add to this the problem of  the Debatable Land, a few  square miles of territory on  the Borders that neither side  wished to take responsibility  for, and which naturally became a haven, a kind of Cas-  bah, for every outlaw and  broken man on the Border,  and resisted even total devastation by several armies in  the attempt to depopulate it,  and you have the reason why  so many Wardens were not  equal to the task. Politics and  patriotism were matters of  convenience on the Borders.  English Borderers acted as  scouts and guides for invading Scots armies and Scots  Borderers did the same for  English armies returning the  favour. ^  Neither side can be blamed  for its lack of national loyalty.  Until the death of the Scottish King Alexander III in  1268, the Borders were no  more lawless and violent than  any other rural area of the  country. But Edward I was  the first of a long line of  English monarchs who wished  to bring Scotland under their  sway for strategic reasons and  the Scots War of Independence, ted by Wallace and Robert Bruce, was the first of  many Scots' objections to  the seating arrangements on  the throne of southern neighbours. From that time on,  armies from both sides passed  through the Borders with  fire and sword. The Borderers  repeatedly had their homes  burned, their harvests confiscated or razed, their families slaughtered, and their  possessions looted, by soldiers from both nations,  while they were forced to  live a nomadic existence in  the hills, subsisting on whatever livestock they could  drive before them. Even when  the armies had gone, under  the relatively quiet reign of  Elizabeth I, it was in the  interest of both nations to  see that the Borders remained  somewhat turbulent. More  than once a small force of  Borderers, in a rare display of  patriotism, made things so  hot for a potential invasion  force from either side that the  expedition was abandoned.  Fraser follows all the twists  and turns of Border diplomacy and law enforcement  and along the way paints a  colourful and illuminating  picture of the life of the  people, particularly in his  thumbnail histories of the major family feuds that so powerfully shaped events on the  Borders and in sketches of its  most interesting inhabitants.

The favourite food of these creatures is  deciduous trees, but it is felt  that they will spread to the  coniferous variety, which if  not all logged off, will provide  a bountiful food supply.  The present plans have  included spraying the area by  helicopter. This naturally  has the locals up in arms. The  Greenpeace Headquarters is  in the middle of the spray  area, so that should cause  some fury. From interviews  I've listened to, everybody  appears to be responsibly concerned and talking over the  problem sensibly, so it may  be worthwhile to follow the  proceedings and maybe we  can get some pointers, as we  are constantly up against similar 'to spray or not to spray'  problems ourselves.  Dog hater  Driving along Pratt Road on  Friday, I was following one of  those creeps who give the human race a bad name. He or  she was driving toward  Highway 101 in a brown and  cream, newer model pickup. Suddenly the truck  swerved across the road onto  the opposite shoulder. At first  I thought the driver was drunk  or dodging a kid, then I noticed that the truck was hot on  the trail of a dog which had  been minding its own business  by the roadside. Fortunately  the aim was as bad as the  driving and the dog escaped.  It seems such a pity to waste  all those fantasies on poor  dumb animals, when the driver could drive the metallic  extension of his/her ego  around school playgrounds  and really live it up.

Taxpayer supports Lee  Editor:  I, as a taxpayer, was very  shocked to read, in your paper, about the Regional Board  asking for Mr. Lee's resignation as Chairman of the Finance Committee.  He is the one man on the  Regional Board who really  does his homework and tries  to keep our expenses down.  There are too many on the  Board that have never had to  meet a payroll and don't seem  to know the value of a dollar.  The name of the game seems  to be "spend money, there is  more where this came from''.  Mr. Lee has always done an  excellent job of keeping us informed about the Regional  Board's spending. It is a great  loss to all tax payers in this  area, to have Mr. Lee relieved  of his Chairmanship.  Regarding the sums of  money the Regional Board  proposes to make to the Fitness Programme ($5,000.00)  and the Provincial Emergency  Programme ($2,000.00). Sure  it is "only" $7,000.00 but that  is this year, what will they ask  for next year I If these people  are not happy with the funds  they are getting now, why  don't they go to the Senior  Governments that started the  programmes? Why do they  come to the Regional Board?  Probably they feel the Regional Board is easier to deal with.  Personally, I wish we had  more members like Mr. Lee on  the Board, with the intestinal  fortitude to stand up and say  what he (or she? thinks and  stand by it. He calls it as he  sees it.

Alaatalr  Gillespie, Minister of Energy,  Mines and Resources.  Sir:  I heard with distress today  on the radio C.B.C. broadcast, the news that "within  weeks" Canada will finalize  a multi-million dollar deal with  Mexico ��� to receive crude  oil from Mexico in return for  atomic reactors from Canada.  It is a shock to think that our  trusted government feels it  must so prostitute its trade  with Mexico by sending atomic reactors. There is no  excuse for such bargaining.  It is more than distressing to  feel that our country would  stoop so low as to send such  dangerous tools in the name of  necessary exports.  Mexico is one country that  most certainly does not require a substitute for fuel ���  since she is sitting on one of  the greatest supplies of oil  in the world. Therefore we  may assume that Canada's  government is piling one  selfishness upon another,  using dishonest, unethical  tactics to raise our dollar  value.  What price is our dollar  when our name and character are equated with selling  equipment dangerous to  humanity and to our world  home in return for monetary  advantages?  Though I love the Mexican  people and feel a close bond  with that country through the  friendship of the hundreds  that we met during an eight-  month sojourn in Mexico, I  was happy to return to our  Canadian cities where one  could leave one's car unguarded and come back to find it  whole. I felt at ease with my  own country's honesty, justice and dependability. But  here is a tremendous instance  of disease in the very top of  our country ��� in our government ��� in its irresponsible,  dangerous, and yes, dishonest use of our resources.  Canada has better ways of  raising the value of her dollar;  by honest hard work and output for one thing, and less  emphasis on forever getting.  Though some of our resources ��� paper, lumber, farm  equipment for example ���  have less melodramatic appeal, they could be more dependable exports to a country  experiencing a great commercial boom.  I think it is a tremendous  pity that Canada is becoming  famous for expertise in manufacturing such dangerous and  unwarranted equipment, and  for making opportunities to  export it. We demand of our  leaders an ethical and moral  stand on issues so involving  human safety and international respect. Mr. Gillespie, we shall be watching the  news reports with great interest for correction of this  irresponsible move on the part  of our government.  Joan C. Warn,  Box 17, Gower Point,  Gibsons.

Twenty-four rinks from all  over the lower mainland vied  for more than $1,000 in prizes  ranging from blenders to  blankets and toasters to tools.  Thanks to the Powell River  crew and their fantastic ice  machine, we curled on the  best ice ever.  In the finals on Sunday  afternoon, the Revitt rink  from Haney took the A event  and the M&M Log Sorting  trophy with a win over Lang-  ley's McAninich rink. The  local Reitlo rink won the B  event and the Royal Bank  trophy, defeating another  local rink skipped by Alex  Skytte.  The Ted Hume Services  trophy for the C event was  contested by Bud Will and  Wally Pomeroy, both from  Delta. Bud went home with  the hardware in this event.  North Shore's Charles  rink met and defeated a Port  Coquitlam rink skipped by  Downie, to take the Sunshine  Coast Disposal trophy in the  D event.  As well as the trophies,  winners in each event went  home with prizes donated by  Canfor in the A event and Suveges Marine in the B event.

Last but by no means least,  hearty thanks to Deirdre and  Maurice Pearson for the many  long hours they spent in preparation for this annual event.  Much of the success of a bonspiel of this size is due to the  smooth running of the event,  which takes many hours of  behind-the- scenes preparation and organization.  Looking ahead to next  Sunday, don't forget the high  school green bonspiel sponsored by the Elphie curlers.  Many of these kids have not  curled before and deserve  our interest and support.  Remember, they are the future members of our club and  our encouragement will ensure the continuation of this  great sport.  Maulers  Getting into shape for the  BIG game against the R.C.  M.P. Mumps, the Trail Bay  Maulers pitted themselves  against the Burnaby Bruisers  on Saturday night at the  Arena.  < The final score in the game  was 6 to 5 for the home team.  They led one to zip coming  into the second period and extended their lead to four���one  at the end of it.  According to 'reliable'  sources, the performance on  Saturday night proves beyond a shadow of doubt that  they will be more than a match  for the Mumps who, if rumour  is to be believed, feel that they  will be able to play with one  hand behind their backs and  still win. This undying optimism still survives in the face  of the undeniable proof that  the Maulers trounced them  soundly in their last outing.  There is a good deal of  interest and fun being generated around next Saturday's  game, so anyone looking for  an evening of good entertainment should be at the  Arena by 8:30 p.m. to cheer  on the winners and/or the  losers.

By Maryanne West  So the C.R.T.C. wonders  why it lacks credibility in  B.C.I  The comment attached to  the renewal of C.B.C.'s  C.B.U.T. license reads:  "The Commission is satis-  fled that the Corporation's  new production facilities in  Vancouver completed in the  winter of 1976 have enabled  C.B.U.T., Vancouver, to take  significant steps to meet not  only its local but also regional  obligations through diversification of production content".  Such gobbledegook fairly  boggles the mind, doesn't  it?  One has to wonder what  statistically embroidered  fairytales the C.B.C. used to  persuade the Commission to  support the status quo.  Maybe a lot is going on  which I've not noticed. I  know we now have a whole  hour per week over and above  the nightly newshour for  Pacific Report which allows us  to explore and discuss issues  of local concern, but that  programme resulted more  probably from the revolt  of the producers who publicly supported the B.C.Commit-  tee for C.B.C. Reform. We do  contribute to the summer  symphony series, and a number of variety shows and specials are produced here because we have these good  facilities. Many of them like  the one to be aired this week,  starring a Toronto singer  Grant Smith and for which  both producer and director  were flown out from Toronto.  And of course there was  that most expensive series  built around the famous  "Canadian" Wolfman Jack  and the present equally expensive series starring well-  known British Columbian,  Rene Simard. Rene Simard  makes no secret of using  the exposure C.B.C. provides  as a stepping stone to Hollywood, and the show, which  does provide a showcase for  other Canadian talent, sometimes maybe even British  Columbian, is obviously  American style with producer  imported from L.A.  I may be missing the point,  but this isn't my .idea of the  C.B.C. 's regional obligations.  Does the C.R.T.C. really  feel that the Beachcombers  even portrays the reality of  West Cout life? The script  'writers may build a story  around handliners or Indian  lore but the thin thread of  historical or even current fact  is lost in the comedy-farce  format. Now we're to have a  new West Coast series, but  the producers are coming out  from Toronto, and it was the  same with the. recently aired  "Albertans", ' producers,  director, writer ��� all from  Toronto.  Yes, we do have some locally produced variety shows-  a trivia quiz and a shoestring budget show taped on  location in the Penthouse,but  the big productions for the  network have very little  to do with British Columbia  except that we happen to have  this Vancouver facility whict)  needs to be used.  Certainly since 1976 we've  lost some very talented and  dedicated producers, among  them Mike Poole and Mike  Halloran, both of whom have  done so much to bring environmental issues to public  attention, but who finally  succumbed to the discouragement of inadequate budgets,  eastern interference and the  frustrations of having Toronto  production teams sent out to  film the token B.C. inserts in  "national" documentaries.

Enter at these  participating  deafen.  gramming ��� those facilities  have to be used but the most  important ingredient is  what goes on in the heads of  those who make the decisions  on Bay Street or Bronson Avenue ��� and as far as one can  judge from here, that thinking hasn't changed at all.  Do people living in Prince  Rupert or Prince George, in  the Kootenays or the Okanagan, or even in the Fraser  Valley, feel proud of their  British Columbian heritage, or  that they understand each  other better or even are more  aware of each others' existence because of C.B.C.'s  "Etibicoke West" production  facilities in downtown Vancouver? I doubt it. The nickname itself tells the story.  Does the C.B.C. reflect the  rich cultural and ethnic mosaic which makes British  Columbia such a rewarding  place to live? Shouldn't the  C.B.C. be taking the lead in  making sure that on-camera  positions reflect the reality of  British Columbian society?  That even though people of  Indian, Asian, Slavik, Latin or  African heritage may be minorities, they are an integral  part of B.C. life? If you are a  native Indian do you recognize yourself on television?  How come the native people  of this province do not have  their own production team  and air time from this building? Where are the programmes which would tap that  huge reservoir of historical  stories in this province?  Where are the programmes  about west coast literature?  Where are the British Columbian choirs, music groups and  symphonies (apart from Vancouver)? Where are the B.C.  theatrical groups? Why do our  film makers have to ask  P.B.S. in Seattle to find air  time for their work? One could  go on and on.  While one understands the  unenviable position of the  C.R.T.C. with regard to the  C.B.C, one of having no power to change anything,  at least former Chairmen  Pierre Juneau and Harry  Boyle used these occasions  to make constructive recommendations. Or does the present chairman feel the C.B.C.  is in such danger that it is  dangerous   to   remark   on  ��� 'M;M.J;i'J  [outboards]  My mother and I, accompanied by Lady Irwin, the Viceroy's wife, were invited to a  Purdah party in an Indian  Harem.  It was back in August, 1927.  There was one guest in  particular I can remember,  being the only Indian present,  not one of the wives (there  were so many of them, they  were a party in themselves!),  the wife of a prominent Indian  lawyer.  The occasion was in our  honour, my mother's and  mine. We were the guest of  the Viceroy with my father,  the late Mr. E.W.F. Gilman  C.B.E., who as controller of  Labour Malaya, was in charge  of all the immigration to that  country, which accounted for  our visit. To continue; we were  ushered in by two burley  Eunuch Guards who guarded  the entrance to the Harem.  It was like something out of a  fairytales the place left me  speechless with wonder.  Here were some of the most  beautiful women I have ever  seen, in their story book  setting. Rare Oriental rugs,  vases and ornaments adorned  the place. Here were women  no man had ever set eyes on  save their nearest relatives,  and few women either, so  closely were they guarded.  What exquisite innocent  beauty they displayed (the  young ones I mean), with their  sleek dark tresses and their  black saucer-like eyes set  strangely enough in their  fair-skinned faces, a little  lighter than our own, which  they kept that way presumably  by keeping heavily veiled.  Their clothing was of the  finest silks and satins in the  most dazzling array of colours. They wore trousers,  which is the custom among  these women, in a kind of  jodhpur style. Their jewels  were magnificent. One wonders how one mere male could  pay for all this, even an Indian  Rajah 11 Some were little more  than children and looked from  twelve to fourteen years of  age. A few had grey hair and  only one was a white woman,  rather elderly. She looked  peaceful and contented as  indeed did they all, leading a  life of ease and indulgence, if  a little quiet to our way of  the continued shortcomings?  This I can't help feeling will  neither add to the credibility  of the C.B.C. nor the C.R.  T.C.  It's not good enough for  the C.R.T.C. to hide behind  the fact that apparently no  one came forward at that  October Hearing to complain  about C.B.C. ��� if the  C.R.T.C. really doesn't  know itself how things are,  if it isn't taking the time to  listen to its representatives in  Vancouver ��� then perhaps  there is really very little  sense in the Commission coming here at all.

The sole Indian guest was in  sharp contrast to the rest,  though dressed in Indian style  too, but in the more conventional sari. She nevertheless  was in Parisienne shoes and  her hairstyle was European  too. It was short and fashionably waved, she wore modern  earrings extremely large and  glittering. Her face, though  beautiful, had a wistful expression. She was a lovely  woman too, with her blue  black raven-like hair and her  large grey-blue luminous  eyes. But her face already  began to look a trifle pinched  under her makeup; and the  dissipation and anguish of  the outside world, were plainly written on her wan face.  Yet with it all, she was still a  handsome woman.  There is something to be  said for the quiet life of the  Harem. Little did these  comely, if rather helpless  women know of the tragedies  without. Did we do them such  a favour by emancipating  their women? I wonder.  After a pleasant afternoon  with these somewhat silent  women (even those who did  speak English had little to  say and my Hindu-stani  was very smattering, which in  all probability they would not  understand, because as you  probably know, there are as  many dialects in India as in  China), but all I wanted to do  was look. Then we partook of  their hospitality for which the  Asiatics are noted, with such  delicious concoctions customary to them, eaten with accompanying music and the  smell of joss sticks (which are  ever present to keep away the  mosquitoes) emitting an odour  similar to incense.  We finally took our leave  amid much bowing, then pro  ceeded 'home'. Home being  the swagger Cecil Hotel, just.  brimming with Brass Hats!!

Of the many  kinds of roses, the hybrid  teas are the most widely  used by home gardeners  because of their variety of  brilliant colours, for their  symmetrical shape, and in  some cases for a pleasant  fragrance.  We have all occasionally  seen a wild rose. It is of pale  colouring, has a single row of  petals around a yellow centre,  and certainly does not earn a  great deal of enthusiasm or  praise. Yet that wild rose is  the far removed ancestor of  our modern hybrid teas and  other varieties.  The dramatic change in the  original wild rose has been  brought about through a  process known as hybridizing  or plant breeding. *  It is simply a natural  phenomenon when the pollen from one plant is placed  on the pistil of another one  and a new variety more or  less is created. But when hybridization is left to the birds  and the bees and the wind,  results are not predictable.  Man, through deliberate  and selective process, has  more control of the outcome.  This process of plant breeding has been of exciting interest to man from early ages.  The best known plant breeder  of modern times was the late  Luther Burbank of the U.S.A.,  but the Chinese have grown  cultivated roses for countless centuries, and in Egyp-  tian tombs dried bouquets of  hybridized flowers have been  found.  One of man's inherent  abilities and desires is to  create something new, and  this is shown in many different endeavours. In the field  of gardening many persons  engage themselves iff creating  new plant varieties, and the  results are shown in the production of new varieties of  apples, oats, wheat, grasses,  etc. and have added much  to human enjoyment. (The  big red rosy apple on your  table did not grow by letting  the tree do just what comes  naturally.)  Two of the members of  the Sechelt Garden Club, Bill  Cormack and Tarn Johnson,  gave talks and slide presentations on hybridization at the  February meeting. Bill spent  some years in Kenya, working  with the people there in set-  ting up crops such as wheat  and developing a programme  to control plant diseases. His  hobby is working with miniature gladioli, as they are  particularly useful in making  floral arrangements.  Through the hybridization  process he has developed a  new variety of miniature gladioli known as 'Puck', which  may be purchased across  North America today.  Tarn Johnson was recently  a lecturer in Economics in  Loyola University, Quebec,  and is now retired and enjoying life and gardening in  the Gibsons area. One rose,  the 'Hiawatha' which is grown  locally, has attracted his  attention. This rose is of the  single variety, and Tarn is  experimenting with it in order to double its chromosomes. The result will be a  bigger plant, more petals, and  more blooms.  Gibsons Area  February  13) An attempted  break-in  at the  Sunnycrest  Mall was aborted when entry  was not gained.
