 The Sunshine  Published at Gibsons, B.C.  15�� per copy on newsstands  Serving the Sunshine Coast since 1945  April 4,1978  Volume 31, Number 14.  To take planning position in ftanaimo  Peter Hoemberg resigns  The Gibsons  Volunteer   Department   was  called out lor this brush (ire which got out of  control last week on Highway 101 beside the  Highway Department Yard.  Matthews and Berger make it  Thirteen finishers in Gibsons-Sechelt run  Bv Ion Corrance  The first annual Coast News Gibsons to Sechelt April Fool's  Hay Race has been run. Out of around twenty starters, thirteen  hardy souls completed the fourteen miles. Here are their names  in order al the finish line:  Adrian Bellshaw; Maxwell Hainmersmilt; Leith Skinner; Bob  Dohlan: Rick Underwood; Nancy McLeod; Mark Slack; Patty  C'awsey and Juan Rigby (lie); George Matthews and Fran Berber (tie); Ken Birken; and Waldo Dahl.  From the very beginning Bellshaw took the lead and maintained il throughout. Hcwill be presented with the Coast News  hnllenge Irophy on Saturday, April 8th.  Ihe idea for the race came  aboul originally from two  longstanding and completely  different ideas on the meaning  uf lhc word health,  The opinion of George Matthews is that smoking and  drinking do not necessarily  guarantee poor health, as  long as at least once a week  you can get on to the rugby  field and get battered and  stomped into shape for eighty  minutes or so followed by ��n  evening of off colour songs at  the local tavern. While Fran.  Berger perfers isometrics,  aerobic dancing, yoga and  wearing blue wigs.  Naturally with two such  opposing views, it was inevitable that there would have to  be a show down. In a spontaneous burst of armchair  energy the gauntlet was  thrown down, "Let's race to  Sechelt," and before anyone  could back out of it, your  local newspaper got wind of  it and would not allow it to  die.  It was a perfect day for a  foot-race. Although �� few cf  the runners felt a little warm,  the weather felt just great  from the passenger seat of the  pilot car. There were sliced  fruit refreshments at Lockyer  Road in the form of oranges  and lemons (lemons?) supplied by the race officials,  Terry and Manuane (Joan  Robb nearly got some).  Of the thirteen that finished  the most surprising and surprised were the instigators,  Fran and George. They came  in hand in hand past the bus  depot and were in a photo  finish for tenth and eleventh  place. There was an ugly  HwHour-gemg around that the  reason they were hand in  hand was because George  did not want Fran to come up  with a final burst of speed  and pip him at the post.  Of course we lend no credence  to this.  Another surprising entrant  was the Coast News editor,  John Burnside, He had been  proclaiming for days that a  Burnside would run. The  world knew different. Then it  was discovered that he had  imported a ringer in the form  of his son Stuart. It was a  darkly-kept secret which allowed him to party the night  before secure in the knowledge that he had an ace up  his sleeve. Anything so underhanded should and did  receive its just rewards. Stuart slept in. A battered blue  Datsun was seen catching up  with the runners at Davis  Bay. Burnside jumped out  and ran ahead of George and  Fran for at least 178'/) yards  then stopped for a cigarette.  In all fairness it was decided  that he would have to make it  back to his car under his own  steam.  A greatly appreciated service at the cenotaph in Sechelt for lhc runners, was a  massage under the soothing  hands of Evans Harmon and  Dawn McKint.  The race was a great  success and will be run again  next April.  There are wild stories  flying about, again from the  daring duo, George and Fran  (after a John's special at the  Cedars) that they will be on  the highway again for Timber  Days. We shall wait and see.  In a surprise move, Director Peter Hoemberg announced  his resignation from the Sunshine Coast Regional Board at the  regular Board meeting held on March 30. Hoemberg made  his motion at the conclusion of the meeting and it was the timing  of the announcement which caused Board Chairman Harry  Almond to express some surprise. "I had thought that Peter  intended to carry on for a few weeks longer," said Almond in a  conversation with the Coast News subsequent to the meeting.  Hoemberg announced fha* he was resigning his position to  take the Senior Planner's joo in Nanaimo Regional District.  Hoemberg first served with the Regional District as an Assistant to Planner Ed Cuylits at the time when the Agricultural  Land Reserve was first implemented. Subsequent to Cuylits'  departure Hoemberg served as Planner in an interim capacity  until the arrival of Adrian Stott to take the Planner's position.  He first served on the board as director when, as alternate  to Rita Rolf, he put in several months in 1974. In 1974 he was  elected to his first full term as the director for Area 'B' and won  re-election in 1976. His second full term would have run out  this year.  When he announced his resignation March 30 veteran directors Harry Almond and Morgan Thompson expressed impromptu appreciation for the service that Hoemberg had given the  Regional Baord and the community. "I've had disagreements  with Peter over the years," said Thompson, "but when I realized that he had the good of the whole district at heart we got  along fine."  Grants awarded  Provision was made for  three additional grants in  the Regional Board budget  for the coming year at the  meeting held March 30. The  grants were awarded to the  Southwestern B.C.Tourist  Association; the local R.C.M.  P., and the local branch of the  B.C.Council for the Family.  For the Southwestern B.C.  Tourist Association, Rick  AntOnson made a brief presentation asking for between  $1,000 and SI,500 for the  Association's role in promoting, the Bf.C .tourist industry.  After some discussion before  the budget was passed,  Director Joe Harrison of  Area 'A' told the board  members that the information  he had received from the motel owners' association in  his area had indicated that  grant of $400 would be  adequate. Accordingly the  Regional Board members  voted to award the Tourist  Association $400 for their  work in the coming year.  Sergeant Farenholz of the  Sechelt detachment of the  R.C.M.P. made a presentation  to the Board for a grant of  $2,000 for auxiliary police in  the area. He told the Regional Directors that the Provincial Government had allot-  ed less money for this purpose  than heretofore. Provision  had been made for only two  auxiliary positions in the entire southwestern part of the  province stretching from  Boston Bar to Sechelt and  those two positions had  not been awarded to the  Sunshine Coast.  Sergeant Farenholz pointed  out that criminal case load in  this area per man is very  high, there having been a  71% increase in thc call for  policing in thc last year. "The  auxiliary force worked a total  of 2,000 hours lasl year,"  said Sergeant Farenholz,  "and were reimbursed for  their out of pocket expenses."  The Sechelt head of detachment said that training programs were underway which  it was hoped would upgrade  the auxiliaries to Ihe point  where they could handle the  more menial of police tasks.  Regional Board Director  for Area 'B', Peter Hoemberg,  expressed some misgivings  about the grant request.  "Consideration is being given  at the present time," said  Hoemberg, "to the restructuring of the present govern-  turing of the present system  whereby more of the policing  costs would be shifted from  the provincial government to  the Regional District."  Under questioning from  Hoemberg, Sergeant Farenholz admitted that there were  no regional districts in the province which at ihe present  time grant monies for the  funding of auxiliary police  throughout the Regional  District.  At the request of Mrs.  Agnes Labonte the Regional  Board also voted to provide  $50 for prize money for a  Family Essay Contest to be  held in conjunction with thc  second annual Family Month  in May. sponsored by the  B.C.Council for the Family.  Pender  confusion  Some confusion existed at  the discussion held at Ihe Regional Bard on March 30  concerning thc provision ol  water for thc Pender Harbour School, Apparently the  School Board had reported  that they had been unable to  procure an easement to bring  water from the creek above  the school to provide domestic waler requirements. They  further said that the Ministry  of Education was unwilling  to launch expropriation procedures, and therefore asked  that the Regional Board expropriate for them and turn  it over.  Confusion arose because  it was unclear whether the  School Board was asking that  the Regional Board should  expropriate thc land or just  water easement over it. Regional Directors expressed  themselves as being in favour of expropriating a water  easement but unwilling to  engage in land expropriation  for someone else.  Director Peter Hoemberg  of Area 'B' moved that the  School Board be asked for  clarification as to whether  they wanted an easement or  clear title. The motion carried and Secretary-Treasurer  Anne Pressley was instructed  to contact thc School Board  for clarification.  Lucky  winners  The winners of the Mall  Association trip to Hawaii  and the $500 Super-Valu  draw were announced this  past weekend. Mr. and Mrs.  C.D.Hanson of Veterans  Road in Gibsons arc the lucky  winners of Ihe trip to Hawaii,  and Mrs. E.M.Webb of  Soames Point won the $500  Shopping Spree.  Important Creek   meet  An important meeting of the  Roberts Creek Community Association will be held in the  Roberts Creek Community  Hall at 8:00 p.m. on Wednesday, April 5. The meeting will  discuss some contentious is-  sues which have arisen lately  in connection with Roberts  Creek and will be under the  chairmanship of Regional  Board Chairman and Director for Area 'D', Harry Almond.  In court  In this breathtaking action shot the Coast  News editor is shown in a comfortable lead  over George Matthews, Fran Berger, and  John Hind Smith at Davis Bay during the  Gibsons-Sechelt run last Saturday.   Notable  in the picture is the admiring finger that Fran  Berger is pointing at the fast-striding figure  of the editor. Winner of the race was Adrian  Bellshaw and he will be presented with the  Coast News Challenge Cup next week.  At County Court in Vancouver,  the jury for the Shannon murdei  trial is expected to go out on  Monday afternoon, April 3.  At Provincial Court held in  Sechelt on March 29, Fredrick  Vopinka was charged with not  having  a  driver's  license  and  speeding. Hc was fined $35.00  on each count. Nichol Warn was  fined $35.00 for driving a defective motor vehicle, and Ivan  Dixon was given a suspended  sentence and six months on  probation for being in possession  of liquor.  The Coast News photographer surprised  Norm Peterson in one of his favourite Mor-  rell mushroom patches last week but has  promised to refrain from divulging the location. -'  smtrngBMa*  Delivered to EVERY address on the Sunshine Coast every Tuesday  ^tmtataaax m  mm  Coast News, April 4,1978.

In many quarters, Hoemberg has  been perhaps thc most unpopular director. This was occasioned by the thoroughness with which hc addressed himself to local government. He was, over  the years of his service to thc district,  consistently the local legislator who had  best doqc his homework. His careful  preparation and incisive intellect made  him a dominant force in every board  he served on, though he was consistently  denied the chairmanship.  When regulations arrive in a previously  un-regulated area of human experience,  it is natural that they should be resented  at the outset and this natural resentment  was often directed against Director  Hoemberg for his outstanding diligence  and ability. And yet it must surely be  said that hc served the Sunshine Coast  well during his terms of office. The  business of preparing legislation which  adequately resist the efforts of those  who would seek, normally for their own  ends, to circumvent the statute book is  a tedious and a time-taking business and  by his dedication and thoroughness  Hoemberg set a standard for legislative  competence which stood the District in  good stead on many, many occasions.  The customary charge levelled against  him was one of dictatorship and yet he  won election twice in democratic action  and had he chosen to run again this  fall it is difficult to imagine who could  have beaten him in Area 'B'. In his area  he was respected as a concerned and  available representative of high ability  and justly so.  Hoemberg arrived on the Sunshine  Coast in his sail boat with his wife  Karin and son, and fell in love with the  area and forgot about completing his  round-the-world cruise back to Denmark.  He was not long in making his mark  here and the Coast News can do no better  than echo the words of Director Morgan  Thompson when Hoemberg announced  his resignation last Thursday night.  "Peter had the good of the whole community at heart." Thank you, Mr.  Hoemberg.  Garbage  With all due respect to the directors  of the Regional Board it would seem on  the question of the relocated garbage  dump they seem to have gone out of their  way to make their lives complex. The  situation is that they have to upgrade  their dumps to conform to provincial  Pollution Control Board standards.  At present there are dumps at Pender  Harbour, Halfmoon Bay, Sechelt, and  Gibsons. All of them have to be maintained, in addition the Gibsons dump is  beginning to show definite indications of  a developing leaching problem.  The solution originally was to have the  dumps at Pender Harbour and Sechelt  only with perhaps containers for a pickup service for those who wanted to  take their own waste away at Gibsons  and Halfmoon Bay. Then the Chairman of the Garbage Committee came  forth with the thought that the people  of the south end of the Sunshine Coast  shouldn't be so far from a garbage  dump. One is not quite sure why. Instead he suggested we should have  a dump at Roberts Creek and abandon  the Sechelt dump too. It just doesn't  seem to make much sense.  The Board is now paying to have a  study done by engineers to see if a  suitable site can be found in Roberts  Creek. The people of Roberts Creek  can be safely assumed not to be too  happy with the idea.  It would seem that, if pick-up containers at Halfmoon Bay and Gibsons  are provided, the existing dumps at  Pender Harbour and Sechelt could serve  the purpose. Surely the expense and  trouble of finding a new site in the no-  man's land of Roberts Creek isn't worth  the trouble. It's creating a contentious  issue for certain to avoid a dispute which  may never arise.  Dialogue  An interesting dialogue is taking place  at the Regional Board level concerning  the role of the directors. Director Joe  Harrison is the foremost spokesman for  the directors following completely the  dictates of the people who elected them  and his concern is admirable. Chairman Harry Almond, while perhaps  no less conscientious about representing  Roberts Creek, also feels that there  must be times when the directors must  take the area as a whole into consideration and act as a united board.  Perhaps some light can be shed on  the matter if we consider it possible  that a director's function is more than  to act as a mouth-piece for his area.  His exposure over a prolonged period  of time to the various issues at large  puts him in a better position than those  who elect him to see the overall picture  and part of his function should be an  educational one, explaining and giving  the background to those he represents  who are not in as good a position as he  to have it.  If finally he does not do enough representation then the people have the  right to speak with their votes. Director  Harrison would argue that the people  of any specific area would have what  happens to them affected by the vote  of seven men who were not accountable  to them. He is right. But the perfect  democracy has not been designed yet and  it is in the interstices of imperfection  that wc must trust commonsense and  consideration for the common weal.  ...from the files of Coast News  5 YEARS AGO  Regional Planning director E.R.  Cuylits informed the Regional District Board that subdivision activity had  increased by leaps and bounds of late.  J.G.Warn's application for rezoning  for a commercial marina at the mouth  of Roberts Creek was turned down by  thc Regional Board this week.  10 YEARS AGO  Head table guests at a Cedars Inn  tribute to returning long-time Gibsons  shop keeper, Vince Prewer, included  Bernie Mulligan, Dave Kinnc, Gordon  Plows, Wally Venechuk, and Pete  Trower. The retiring Mr. Prewer  was presented with a Trower colour  cartoon.  Norm Watson and Joe Benner travelled to Ottawa to attend the National  Liberal Convention.  15 YEARS AGO  Chief Charlie Craigan died in Sechelt.  Three hundred people turned out to  hear federal political candidates in  Gibsons School Hall.  Among o'ther things, Liberal candidate  Jack Davis said in an election speechl  that a Liberal Government would  process more of our natural resources;  create a million jobs in the next four  years; and establish the long-range  planning essential at the national level.  20 YEARS AGO  The Seaside Hotel in Port Mellon  burned down in a fire which broke out  Saturday night.  Provincial NDP candidate Tony Gar-  grave said that Social Credit was dead  as a political force in B.C.  Conservative Bill Payne defeated  Liberal Jimmy Sinclair in the recent  federal election.  25 YEARS AGO  A new shingle mill opens just east of  Wilson Creek.  Four generations of the Armour  family gathered in Gibsons for photos.  They ranged in age from 92-year old  Samuel G.Armour to Stephen Gerald,  just a few months old.  30 YEARS AGO  No paper available.  2gmsis^>Jr��-  Mouth of the Capilano River, early 1900's. No homes. No commercial enterprises. The snow-mantled Lions look down on a  stream somewhat groyned but as yet unbridged. Water from  the Capilano first travelled to Vancovuer through pipes laid  under supervision of J.J.Nickson beneath the First Narrows,  a considerable feat for turn-of-the-century technoloby. Since  the city imposed less than one tenth of the present drain on  its resources, the flow of the river is scarcely diminished in  this scene. Nickson spent his last days at his home in West  Sechelt. Photo courtesy Ada Oawe and Elphinstone Pioneer  Museum. L.R.Peterson  Slings & Arrows  George Matthews  It is not my custom to reply  to letters to the editor. I feel  that in this space and in the  editorial portion of the editorial page I have my kick at the  can and that writers who  disagree or point out errors  should be allowed to do so  without the editor odiously  utilizing the opportunity that  exists because of his control  of the medium to have the  last word on all issues.  ' I would, however, make an  exception this week, hopefully  in the spirit of civilized debate. I refer to the excellent  letter appearing on Page  Three this week from Regional Board Director Charles  Lee. It may be remembered  that a couple of weeks ago I  editorialized on what seemed  to me to be becoming a  somewhat intransigent attitude that Mr. Lee was developing to the Regional  Board which led me to specu-  ate that he might have some  philosophic opposition to the  concept of Regional Boards  particularly since that concept  is up for review this year at  the behest of our masters in  Victoria. I asked for enlightenment in the matter, hence  the letter this week.  Mr, Lee's letter, as one  would expect from a man of  his considerable abilities, is  a vigorous and a witty statement. I must confess, however, to some disappointment.  To the central issue, namely  his attitude to the concept,  Mr. Lee addresses himself  hardly at all except to say  somewhat mysteriously there  are solutions other than death  and that several alternatives  are being bruited aboul.  The bulk of the letter is devoted to a chapter and verse  presentation, again, of what  I referred to as Mr. Lee's  support for thc motherhood  issues of fiscal restraint,  support for the underdog,  and vigorous representation  of the wishes of his constituents.  I have no wish to quarrel  with the director on these  issues. In person and in  print I have agreed with him  on these matters. They are  not at contention. Long may  he continue to advocate restraint in government spending, consideration and justice for the less fortunate, and  vigorous democratic representation. But what about the  Regional Board itself? Is  he for or against?  There is also a mysterious  reference to my "well-known  philosophy" in the paragraph which circumvents  the central issue. Before I  address myself to that in  detail, may I observe that Mr.  Lee    has    intimated    silkily  on several occasions that he  shares my "philosophy"  whatever he presumed it to  be. Let insinuations be cast  carefully.  Thc central sentence in the  letter reads: "What is the  future of the Board? Let's  just say there is a remedy for  everything other than death  and with your well-known  philosophy, John, you well  know that turmoil eventually  turns up such a remedy."  The inadequacy of this as an  enlightening statement of  position, I have already referred to. In the interest of  some specific clarity I would  say that I know of no philosophy of mine that actively  seeks turmoil, whatever Mr.  Lee thinks he can descry.  In further pursuit of clarity  let me set down as clearly  as I can what would pass for  my general philosophy. I  shall pass from the general  to the specific. In general I  would describe myself as a  conservative with an emphatically small "c". I would not  set myself against change and  growth for the same reason  that King Canute would  not set himself against the  tide, but I would argue that  this turbulent century has  seen nothing but upheaval  and change and it seems to  me, for the good of the  human spirit, some period of  tranquility should at least be  sought.  In government 1 am passionately and peacefully a  democrat. That is, I have  grown to manhood with thc  good fortune to live in societies where thc transfer of  power went on without the  rattle of machine guns and so  would I have it continue.  Without turmoil, Mr. Lee.  I am opposed to the Liberal  party of Canada because my  studies of Canadian history  have persuaded me that for  the past fifty years they have  been selling the country out  and we have ended up broke  in the process. I am opposed  to the Progressive Conservatives because it seems to me  that their malaise is inherent  in their name. "Progressive"  implies let's get on with it;  "Conservative" implies let's  hang back, and it seems to  me that the Progressive  Conservatives have been  getting on with hanging back  ever since I came to Canada ���  and never more so than when  Diefenbaker briefly mesmerized the country and made  them the government.  I am opposed to the Socreds  in B.C. because it seems to  me that the party under the  previous and present Bennetts  had and has either a hostility toward or an incomprehen  sion of the basic democratic  process. Don Lockstead  writes on this well elsewhere  in the paper and I won't dwell  on it here. When I vote 1  usually vote N.D.P. but without much enthusiasm of late  I am afraid.  I am opposed to bigness:  big corporations; big governments; big bureaucracies.  They may be inescapable  but they lend themselves  so easily to corruption and  inefficiency. I am in favour  of people in their various  areas having as much control  over their own lives as is  humanly and socially possible.  And, Mr. Lee, at the present time I am rather in favour of the Regional Board  concept because of the above.  It seems to me that those  opposing it arc either the  government trying to centralize lhc decision making  process in its own hands or  those who would without  let or hindrance and to the  benefit largely of themselves profiteer by reason of  the distance, indifference,  corruption and inefficiency of  the centralized power.  I am in favour of the Regional Board concept because  it seems to be working fairly  well just now and most importantly, Mr. Lee, because  nobody has told me what  would replace it and 1 do not  like to be led blindfolded.  In thc spirit of civilized  debate, sir, these are my  philosophic positions which  lead mc at the moment to  be in favour of the Regional  Board concept for the Sunshine Coast where I reside.  I am willing to learn of better  alternatives and space in  this paper is at your disposal  should you wish to reply.  Generally speaking there is  nothing so unsatisfactory as a  tie. It proves nothing, no  conclusions can be drawn and  worst of all, the hours of preparation are unrewarded. Fortunately, on Saturday, after  fourteen miles of running,  winning became secondary  to simply finishing. There  were enough extremely fit and  fine runners there to remove  any illusion of being able to  run the distance particularly  well and there was a great  deal of satisfaction to be  gained from being able to do  it at all.  My challenge of several  months back to Mrs. Berger  would hopefully answer the  question once and for all as  to whether or not an aging,  overweight and generally  debauched suds guzzler  could run further than the  clean living, nutrition conscious fitness queen. The  mystery remains unsolved.  However, the mere fact that  such an unlikely individual  as the former can even run  that far, however slowly,  should be a source of encouragement for all of my  malt-jockey mates at the Cedar's Inn.  It is clear then that some  other form of challenge ought  to be issued to clear up a  few things once and for all.  I was pretty sure, that a  lightweight like Mrs. Berger  would call it quits after a  couple of miles. But it became clear early on that she  was made of sterner stuff.  II was true that 1 was under a  considerable amount of pressure. I had a busy schedule  that day. I had planned to  drive up to Sechell at 6 a.m.,  park my car, run down to  Gibsons in time for the race,  run to Sechelt, jump in my  car and drive down to Langdale field to play rugby.  A series of events prevented me from putting this  excellent plan into operation:  first of all, my friend Waldo  Dahl needed a ride to the race  in the morning, so I had to  change plans. Now 1 would  have to run toSechelt, then  run back to Langdale, hopefully fast enough to play at  least in the second half of  the rugby game. My plans  were completely ruined when  Mrs. Berger showed up twenty minutes late. Even though  I was amazed to see her show  up at all. I did have the courtesy to wait until she was  ready to run. This of course  threw my plans off completely. Unless I could run to  Sechelt very quickly my chances of getting to the rugby  game became almost impossible.  My disappointments however were more than made  up by having Mrs. Berger  as a running companion.  She kept me amused mile  after mile with stories of how  people who eat too much meat  die at early ages and between  Gibsons and Sechelt she must  have given me two dozen  recipes for meatless meals.  She also presented me at the  beginning of our run with  some Vita-Tea, wheat germ  and bean sprouts, all very  foul looking concoctions  but maybe after all it's time  I tried some of these things.  After all, if a frail little creature like Mrs. Berger can run  all the way to Sechelt without  steak and potatoes and beer,  there must be something to  this health food stuff.  The fact is of course that  * Ptaue turn to Page Three  Overhead Crane  Insect-click of circuits  clang of struck steel  hells and the vast orange hulk  of the building-wide crane  rumbling forward on charged rails  swinging its fat hook ���  an electrified fisherman  of rivets, girders, and grids.

There's an expression  on his beard-stubbled face of  absolute disbelief. God knows  how many volts went through  him before Luigi threw the  switch but it's a miracle he  wasn't thrown clean off the  crane to the cement below.  Hc appears at first glance,  to have had the course anyhow. Nasty visions of Luigi  and 1 being hauled up on  charges of gross negligence or  worse. Hash through my mind.  He proves, on closer examination and to our intense relief,  to be only unconscious although his breathing is shallow and his pulse irregular.  "I'll go phone the first-aid  man," 1 say. "But how the  hell are we going to gct him  down from here?"  Luigi thinks for a second.  "I know," he says suddenly.  "After you phone, go to garage and pick up the big tow-  motor. Get the box too. It's  at the other end of the line. I  stay here in case he come a-  round." He begins applying  some sort of artificial respiration and I set about my mission.  All trace of tiredness has  left me in the face of this near-  calamity. I jog off up the line,  oblivious to the heat and  fumes and to the intense amazement of the shuffling potmen.    They gaze at me in  Pages  from a  Peter Trower  dumbfoundment as I dash  past. I guess they figure  this place has done it to me  at last.  I burst unannounced into  the line-foreman's office. He's  dozing at his desk and looks  up startled. I brief him on  what's happened and hc gets  on the blower to thc first-  aid man. I scoot off about my  duties to more puzzled stares.  The garage is in the open  compound between the old  and new lines. It's a heady  feeling to be out of the bitter  smoke and breathing fresh-  air again, however briefly.  Dawn's breaking over the  grim grey buildings. Looks  like it'll be another scorcher.  The big lift-truck's parked  behind the garage with several smaller models. Luckily  they've finished servicing  it. I start it up and trundle  back. Re-entering the line at  the opposite end, I spot the  box and pick it up with the  forks. It's just a pallet-board  with a railing around it that  we use as a work platform to  make repairs on the undersec-  tions of the cranes. I head off  with it down the centre of  the line. I'm not the world's  best driver and usually travel at the slowest possible  speed but time  may  be  of  Davis Curio 8  Specialty  Shop  CRAFTS  Come in and see our  ���Tandy Leather Products���  ���Rugnelle & Shagnelle���  Kits  1212 Cowrie Street  885-5715  the essence on this occasion  so I gun her a bit. There are  ore-trucks and crustbreakers  in my path but I honk my horn  importantly and they let me  through. Generally, when I'm  called upon to drive through  the lines, I'm obsessed with  the unlikely fear of somehow  spinning sideways, bridging  the gap between the two charged rows of pots and electrocuting myself. Tonight, I  barely think about it.  The first-aid man and Ihe  line-foreman are already up on  thc crane when I gel there.  I can see them wilh Luigi on  the catwalk. Carbeau seems  to have regained consciousness. He's sitting up now.  holding his head. Maybe  they won't need my mobile  elevator after all. But Luigi  gives me the high-sign so I  move the machine close and  raise the hoist to its fullest  extent. They help Carbeau into the box and I lower them to  the floor. The electrician is  still dazed and shaken but at  least he's alive.  Curtis, the tall and scholarly-looking first-aid attendant,  wears a look of amazement.  "That was a close one," he  says. "Lucky the lad there's  got a strong ticker. He must  have taken enough current to  blow the ass off an elephant.  Good thing you guys threw  the switch quick as you did or  he would have been a goner  for sure!" Hc confides this  to us in a low voice, not wanting to further alarm Carbeau  who's shakily standing now,  gazing about in humble wonder.  "What'll happen over  this?" I ask Curtis. "Will  we get hauled up on the carpet?"  "Not necessarily," says  Curtis, who's a decent enough  guy and no Company stooge.  "I'll have to make out some  kind of report but it doesn't  have to go into too many  details. Unless Carbeau lays  a complaint against you, I  doubt anything will come of it  and he seems to figure it was  mostly his fault for not checking with you before he went  WESTERN CANADA'S  CLEANEST AND BRIGHTEST  MIDWAY  APRIL 10th & 11th  Mgj^sg^^^^^^^^^^^^^  up. Probably the less said a-  bout any of this, thc better.''  "Yeah," mutters Carbeau who's overheard.  "Youguys don't have to worry.  If I hadn't been in a lousy  mood, it never would have  happened. We don't say no  more about her. eh?"  "How arc you feeling  now?" queries Curtis. "You  want to go lie down in the  first-aid room for awhile?"  "No, that's okay. I'll be  all right in a minute. Then  I'll gel the hell back up there  and fix that goddamn stud-  puller."  Curtis looks a bit askance at  this bul Carbeau is quite adamant about it. And shortly,  he docs just as he says. I  guess it's like a pilot taking  another plane up right after  he's crashed. The grimy show  must go on. Curtis and the  line-foreman leave but Luigi  and I hang around till he's  finished. This time wc go on  top with him to make sure he's  okay. I look at those ominous  grids with even more respect  than before. Thev damn near  fried a man tonight.  Finally it's qiiillingtimc and  we're standing under the  showers, soaping free the pot-  line soot. "Good thing old  McGraw, hc never show up,"  says Luigi.  "Yeah," 1 say. The events  just past are already beginning to blur like an escaping  dream. I'm thinking of sleep  and Helga.  Twilight Theatre  lhc ebullient Mickey Rooncy  stars in thc upcoming Walt  Disney Studios' production of  Pete's Dragon, a musical fantasy  combining both live action and'  animation. Thc film also stars  Helen Reddy, Jim Dale. Red  Buttons, and Shelley Winters,  and introduces juvenile Scan  Marshall as a runaway orphan  who has an occasionally visible  dragon friend named Elliott.  Pete's Dragon will be shown at  thc Twilight Theatre Wednesday  through Saturday, April 5-8.  There is also a Saturday matinee  at 2:00 p.m. on Saturday the  8th.  For Mickey Rooncy and Red  Buttons the film marks the first  time the two have worked together since they entertained the  troops in 1945. It also marks  thc acting debut of Helen Reddy  whose hit song, "I am Woman"  made her an unofficial spokesperson for women's independence. The movie includes some  fine songs and some breathtaking choreography and should  be enjoyed by the whole family.  The second film of the week is  First Love starring William Katt  and Susan Dcy, both of whom  deliver exceptional performances.  Their trials and tribulations,  separations and reconciliations  will touch thc hearts of most  audiences. Thc film is based on  a short story which appeared in  thc New Yorker magazine written  by Harold Brodkey and it marks  the directorial debut of Joan  Darling who shows herself very  much at home with the bittersweet material.  In the movie William Katt  portrays a touching naivete  and sincerity while Dey is excellent as the indecisive more  experienced girl who finds herself involved with Katt and also  an older man, played by Robert  Loggia. First Love will be shown  at the Twilight Theatre Sunday  through Tuesday, April 9-11.  Of special note to moviegoers  is the fact that the film will be  shown at 9:15 p.m. on Sunday to  make way for a prior musical  performance by the Pender Harbour Community Band. Monday  and Tuesday it will be screened  at the regular hour of 8:00 p.m.  Democracy in kitchen  By Maiiiitiiie Laplante  In matters of political knowledge, I am sorely limited.  The media keeps mc under a  constant barrage of international news, poorly absorbed,  mostly misunderstood due to  lack of informative background and easily dismissed  by an already overloaded  brain.  In matters of national  politics I am overly cautious,  no doubt underestimating my  own capacity for understanding its historical, economical  and ethnic complexities.  Add to this that I am French-  Canadian (though I pride  myself in being more of a  French-Columbian) which in  these days and times means  that to many  people,  I  am  ��� *p *p *p n>i|!

Things have changed greatly  in ten years. I am as ignorant  of these changes as anyone  living outside Quebec. But I  will never forget feeling number two as a race.  There is one political arena  I wish to venture in boldly,  however. I have the knowledge, the experience and a  representative party to back  me up though I am prepared  to stand alone. Whoever said  that if everyone swept their  own front steps the street of  the nation would be clean hit  it right on. 1 therefore step  out of the closet (along with  the broom) and proclaim without fear to be a kitchen democrat. Freedom and education  for the blue apron workers!  No more slavery in the home.

I found  myself confronted by an "outside thc home" and an "inside the home" full time job  By Rae Ellingham  Week Commencing: April 3rd.  General Notes: It's shake up time  again as the New Moon in Aries  opposes Pluto. Emphasis will be  on endings and new starts in our  various affairs. However disturbing the changes feel, it should be  remembered they are for the  best. Many of us will pick up  the pieces and create even better  things and situations.  Babies born at the weekend will  be very energetic and certain of  their goals. Many will be born  leaders but should learn to control selfishness. Mid-week arrivals will he much more sympathetic.  ARIES (March 21- April 19)  Upheavals and endings now  pave thc way for fresh starts and  increased personal growth. It's  time to say goodbye to those  relationships which have gone  stale. Try to project a new, more  positive image as you begin to  take alternative directions. Those  born around April 7 can expect  twelve months of intense change.  TAURUS (April 20-May 20)  With Venus in your sign for  three weeks, you'll be feeling  more attractive and sociable.  Throw out those faded clothes  and treat yourself to more flattering gear. Meanwhile, whot  you've been hiding is forced into  the open for judgement. Be  honest. Institutions, hospitals  and people in seclusion are in  focus.  GEMINI (May 21-June 21)  You may shock others by  changing drastically your long-  range plans and goals. Old  friends may be drifting away but  new acquaintances arrive to  promote revised ideas. Seclusion, peace and quiet will be available soon to those who genuinely need it.  CANCER (June 22-July 22)  A major change in status,  position or public standing seems  inevitable. Remember, it's for  the best. Domestic situation is  likely to need entirely new  approach. Happiness is found  sharing ideas with small informal  groups.  LEO (July 23-Aug.22)  Others continue to be impressed by your fresh philosophical outlook. You're convincing  so there's no need to go into  personal reasons and details.  You now realize what you should  have done months ago. Affairs  and communications from a distance are still the keys to further  progress.  VIRGO (Aug 23-Sept 22)  How other people have been  handling  their   finances  finally  forces you to take only drastic  action. Let them know your  patience has been exhausted.  Your own insurance and investments need immediate reshuffling for greater rewards.  Thoughts of higher education and  long distance travel will absorb  your interest quite soon.  LIBRA (Sept 23-Oct 23)  Accent is on changing relationships. It's time to assess your  needs and confront those people  who arc failing to give you  support. Remember that new,  friendly faces arc waiting and  willing to give fresh encouragement. Those born around October 12th have lo abandon  old habits and clean up thc act.  SCORPIO (Oct 24-Nov 22)  Expect to be showing an entirely new attitude towards health  and employment mailers. Day  to day procedures on thc work  scene have to be revised soon.  Once again, health freaks throw  out thc cigarettes and sugar to  return to sensible diets, homemade bread, and assorted soul-  foods. Those with a chronic  health problem should now seek  a second opinion.  SAGITTARIUS (Nov 23-Dec 21)  If social life has fallen into a rut  now's thc time to change it.  You're ready for new amusements, speculation, and risks.  You only live once. Those with  children have to renew their  approach toward them or face a  long struggle. Casual love  affairs end suddenly bul new  attractions keep up lhc pace.  CAPRICORN (Dec 22-Jan 19)  It's an energetic time for routine work on the domestic front.  Follow the urge to clean out that  attic, spare room or basement.  Once again you're forced to balance family commitments with  personal advancement. Accept  the final solution.  AQUARIUS (Jan 20-Feb 18)  A series of phone calls, messages, and short journeys will  indicate that regular daily routines have to be changed more  drastically lhan you expected.  All correspondence is aimed at  trying to change your mind.  An urge lo beautify Ihe home will  be fell during Ihe next few  weeks.  PISCES (Feb 19-Mar 20)  Emphasis is again on money  and possessions. You'll probably  scrap old financial arrangements  and direct your cash more  wisely. It's time to replace worn  mechanical or electrical gadgets which arc now subject to  irritating break downs. Remember, you onlv gct what vou pay  for.  when I started working for  this paper. A family meeting  was in order. The household jobs were listed in order  of frequency and volume and  distributed to each of us  accordingly. A contract was  duly approved of, after much  debate and discussion. An  otherwise dishevelled household has been running smoothly ever since. Blessed as I  am with a loving, open-minded and understanding adult  partner, my personal ultimatum was the inevitable  insanity and bitterness which  would befall my person if  something drastic wasn't  done about my traditional  role of mother and housewife.  1 won't bore all you sophisticated people with the details  of my  household's  arrange-  Help us build a new  St. Andrew's Church  ��� at the entrance to Front Road In Madeira Park ���  We ask you to mall in a gift, however small.  pay for the steeple or one of the main  beams:  pay for half of the large window at  front of the church:  pay for one pew:  pay for a square of shakes:  see the shakes put on:  buy one suare yard of carpeting:  buy one hymn book:  buy 2Vz lbs. of nails:  Please make your cheque payable to St.  Andrew's Church Building Fund and mail  *0: St.Andrew's Church  P.O.Box 236  Madeira Park, B.C.

So far, the eyeopener  has been the most interesting  aspect of this venture. 1  now understand why the main  wage earner of a family would  be tempted to scream at the  cook for not having supper  ready; why screaming children should be expelled from  human dwellings upon arrival of that wage earner; I also  felt that constant and maniacal  housework reserved for one  specific member of the family  is a dangerous habit to cultivate.  Let's face it, the world is  changing: everybody should  have an equal chance at facing  the challenge it poses and everybody should make him or  herself available to thc knowledge needed in dealing with  il. It's worth trying and it's  very necessary. Very few of  us can afford servants that arc  hired or already living in thc  house. No one should be  denied the privilege of participating both in thc internal  and external affairs of thc  family unit.  i   Gibsons Public     i  ��� Library I  J Tuesday 2-4 p.m. ���  J Wednesday 2-4 p.m.!  i Thursday 2-4 & I  i 7-9 p.m.  ��� Saturday 2-4 p.m.  i  I.  886-2130  ���  l  .J  tf��ai��itfi  mm  ���MiMiiit  M CBC  Radio  A recent dramatization of the short    the direction  story ' 'The Lottery'' was presented at    Mackenzie.  Elphinstone Secondary School under  of  student   Donnard  From the Cab Stand  By John Moore  Well, my limited attention  span finally caught up with  mc last week. I sat down to  the typewriter with my head  full of the results of the  Industrial First Aid course and  promptly got detoured, completely forgetting that I'd  ieft my presumed audience  hanging the week before.  When I handed my pages to  thc editor in the Dogwood  Cafe, he snatched them  eagerly and said, "Great.  I  want  to find  out  how   it  you may carry as many as  thirty or more fares, each one  an unknown quantity. You  can learn to avoid certain  parts of town, and you can become a pretty adept sidewalk  psychologist, sizing people  up at a glance, but ultimately  you never know what you're  in for until you're underway.  Then you have to deal with it,  and with thc disadvantage of  having to maintain control  of your vehicle, almost completely on your own.  On Wednesday night in  the West End of Vancouver,  Tommy Tang, a 26-year old  thirty  There  comes out."  "How  what  comes  out?"   Yellow Cab driver, picked up  I said innocently.  (Still  half  The One drivers have night-  asleep, I hadn't the slightest  idea what he was raving  about.)  "The car-chase story. You  did finish it, didn't you?"  he replied with growing suspicion.  "Well, actually, I mean,  exactly, well...no." There  was a moment of ominous  silence.  'Something    came    up  !"  I gasped at last, removing his  clenched fingers from my  windpipe. In fact, I really  hadn't intended to finish the  story. My "to be continued  next week' remark was just  a figure of speech, since I'd  compared the drivers sitting  mares about. He picked up a  punk who tried to rob him of  the sixty or seventy dollars  he'd taken in and who shot  him in the head with a .22  calibre revolver. " Tang  subsequently died in the intensive care unit of St.Paul's  Hospital. According to the  official reports from the company, he refused to part with  his money. At first, this  seems ridiculous. Who would  get himself shot over seventy  bucks, or seventy thousand,  for that matter? But people  have died defending a lot  less. It is, as they say, the  principle of the thing. It  helps you to understand  if  little you've got  scared seconds,  isn't a cab driver anywhere  who couldn't tell you why  Tommy Tang fought for his  money or what, in detail,  they'd like to do to the bushwhacking little coward who  shot him.  It seems to me that it's  one of the ironies of the social  and economic system under  which we live that the rich,  who can afford to lose a few  dollars without a fight, can  also afford to protect themselves and their money,  while the poor are left to  steal from one another and  get themselves killed defending an amount of money that  wouldn't even cover some  peoples' bar-bill for an evening. The punk who shot  Tommy Tang is probably  broke, unemployed, and  scared stiff. Now he is a  murderer. Sure, you can say  that Tommy Tang didn't  have to put up a fight for a  lousy seventy bucks, and that  the guy who tried to rob him  didn't have to pull the trigger, but what were those two  young men doing trapped in a  car together with seventy  dollars and a loaded revolver? Think about it. Over  and Out.  By Maryanne West  There are a number of program  changes on CBC-AM Radio  with the end of the winter schedule. Jazz-Radio-Canada has  switched to Fridays at 8:30 p.m.  to be replaced on Thursdays by  Country Road, formerly heard  on Fridays.

Signature is finished replaced by thc Entertainers,  Sunday at 4:35 p.m.. this week a  Country music extravaganza.  Between Ourselves has also  changed places with Our Native  Land and is now heard Saturday  at 6:15 p.m. This week the Elliotts of Sunnydalc, Yukon tell  of their happy back-to-the-land  experiences, "Hayranching north  of 60".

The Mobile Home Registry, a firsl for Canada,  has been set up to recognize Ihe rights and protect  the interests of buyers and sellers of mobile homes.  It's similar to the Land Registry in that it acts as an  information centre that keeps a complete record  of thc ownership and location of all mobile homes.  It means that all sales and changes of location are  registered to protect ownership interests. Il means  that a title search can be requested to assure buyers  that they are indeed getting legal title. And  because it provides lenders with better  security, it could mean heller financial terms for  purchasers of mobile homes,  The Act is in effect as of April 1.1978, After that  dale all mobile homes must he registered before  they can be sold or moved. If you're a mobile home  owner al present, or are considering becoming one  in the future, or are involved in the sale or financing  of mobile homes, you should be aware of how the  Mobile Home Act protects you.

Wildlife  corner  By Ian Corrance  It's been a couple of weeks  since I have had a chance to  write this column. I've been  spending too much time being  the Easter Bunny or getting  belated Christmas trees off  flag poles and other important  things. (El). NOTE.Hmm!)  The Saturday before last  John Hind Smith made it  back to thc heronry in Howe  Sound. Hc found two more  nests on trees that had not  been marked, so it looks like  they have just been recently  built. A good sign.  Later on when the babies  have grown up we, in conjunction with the Canadian  Wildlife, hope to be able to  band some of the birds in  order to collect more information on them. The reason  we're waiting until they are  close to full size, is because  of the high mortality rate,  it's about 80% in the fledglings. As yet no one has come  up with an inexpensive and  practical method of catching  them. Any brilliant ideas  would certainly be appreciated. The main problem is  that they are usually solitary, plus the fact that they  are often out in the open and  can see you coming. The only  ideas I've come up with are  motorized minnows on a line,  or mechanical birds of both  sexes. By the way thank you  to the people who contacted  me about the locations of  nesting sites. It was a lot of  help.  KAMIKAZE SWAMP ROBIN  For the past week I've  been getting daily reports  about a bird which has been  playing bang its head against  the window in the editor's  bedroom. From the aforementioned person's fuzzy,  early   morning,   myopic   ob-  This Is a photograph of two baby  herons and a still-to-be-hatched egg.  The picture is compliments of Keith  Simpson and his associates at the  Delta Reserve.  scrvalions. it seems to be a  varied thrush, or swamp  robin as it is called locally.  Its plan of attack seems to  be to sneak up on the poor  unsuspecting pane of glass,  then when it is close enough  to pounce without loosing  its quarry, it crashes headlong into it. Once it has thc  window completely at its mercy, it delivers the coup de  grace in the form of a few  swipes with the old beak.  Thc score to date is. the window has delivered seven  headaches, while the bird  has partially disabled its  foe by cracking il across one  corner.  (ED.NOTE As part of the  score, some considerable  number of hours of editorial  sleep hus been lost. Not even  a nuked male form dancing  and gibbering with rage can  discourage the creature for  more lhan a few minutes.)  The only thing that we can  figure out is that either it  nested in the room before,  someone used to feed it,  or when the light catches  the glass at a certain angle  it becomes invisible.  I got caught in a similar  way when 1 was a kid. 1  was in an indoor arcade at  night time taking a short  cut home from the Boys Club.  At the end of the corridor  there was a hobby shop with  no glass in the window.  I went running down to it  and just about broke all my  fingers,   three   inches   away  from picking up a  model of  the Santa Maria.  CIV1TCAT  In response to my asking  about the reason for a local  skunk-type animal being  called a civit cat. a reply came  in informing mc that the wee  animal is actually a closer  relative to the badger than  our skunks. Watch il though,  it still smells.  Finally I've found a natural  lead in to my favourite skunk  story. There was a family  of skunks living under a woodshed in Roberts Creek. In  the natural course of things,  it wasn't long before Ihe size  of the family increased.  It was decided to call the two  new arrivals In and Out.  possibly because skunks have  trouble with anything more  complicated than basic  sounds.  The two youngsters grew  up happily under the shed  for some time, bul eventually  it came to their time in life  when the immediate area had  been thoroughly examined  and they wished for adventure  further afield. Knowing the  dangers of the great outdoors, thc mother skunk  made one rule which had to  be strictly followed. Only  one of the young could go  adventuring at any one time.  It was a balmy summer  evening and the kids wanted  to enjoy themselves before  it got dark. They drew  lots and it was decided that  it was Ill's turn to go and play.  It got dark and the small  skunk had not returned. The  parents became worried but  decided to wait a while.  Eventually it got so late that  something had to be done.  Little Out volunteered to go  out and find her brother.  It was mentioned that since  they both played in the same  area she would have a better  idea where to look. Out the  brave little skunk went into  the dark to look for her  brother. The night was pitch  dark and it was with great  misgivings and not much  hope of success that thc parents allowed Iheir offspring  to take such a chance.  They were amazed when  only after a lew minutes  both children arrived al the  doorstep. The parents ran  up to greet them, asking how  little Out had succeeded so  quickly. Matter of factlv  Out said. "Oh, Instinct".  ODDS 'n ENDS  The young eagle is still  hanging around Gibsons Harbour. It's not as tame as it  was last year when it was  hurt, so it must be getting  better and growing up. The  geese have been returning  over the past week or two.  Morrells are out. This is  for the discerning mushroom  pickers. Anything around  that's interesting'.' Let me  know at 886-7817 or 886-  2622. Thanks.  Regional Board  passes budget  The Sunshine Coast Regional Board passed the budget  for the current fiscal year at the regular board meeting  held on March 30, but it was not without some controversy.  Director Charles Lee opposed the budget.  Lee felt that there were some $60,000 which could be trimmed  off the budget. "In having a budgetary increase this year,"  said Lee, "we are flouting the advice being offered by the senior  governments. This budget is the culmination of several years  of empire building. I see it as local government expansion and  an improvident use of our money."  Gibsons representative to the Regional District, Jack Marshall, also expressed himself as being opposed to the size of  the budget but in the final analysis voted for it leaving Lee the  the only negative vote. Other directors pointed out that an entire evening had been spent in budgetary discussion and that  Lee's opportunity to have input had been available to him at  that time. "We spent a lull evening discussing the budget,"  said Area 'B' director Peter Hoemberg, "and all Board members were satisfied at ihat time."  The main concern Lee enumerated was largely in the staffing  of the Building and Planning Departments.  Egmont    By-law rescinded  Dance  Rick Scott and Joe Mock, the  magical musical duo who form the  Pear of Pied Pumkin will be  hosting another dance in the Egmont Communitv Centre on  Friday, April 7. starting at 8:30  p.m. Included in Ihe evening's  entertainment will be films and  refreshments from the licensed  bar.  Tickets will cost $3.00 for adults and $1.00 for children between the ages of 7-12.    As is  In business arising from the minutes of the previous meeting  the directors of the Regional Board voted unanimously al  their March 30 meeting to rescind the previously passed bylaw 96.1 covering the rezoning of the north half of District Lot  1410. The by-law had been passed to facilitate upgrading at  trade union behest of the Jackson Bros. Log Dumping operation  on the property.  The rescinding came on the advice of the solicitors for the  Regional Board who found that in allowing Mike Jackson to  speak to the Board after the public hearing the Board had left  themselves open for legal action if the by-law carried.  Another public hearing on the matter must now be held,  probably late this month and the residents of Sandy Hook and  Tuwanek subdivisions who objected to the rezoning will have  traditional In Egmont those u"nder another opportunity to persuade the Regional Board that the  six and over sixty wil be admitted  free.   Proceeds from the dance  will go to the Egmont Community  Club.  Bearing in mind lhc long and  dangerous drive from Egmont,  organizers of the dance urge  that each carload of people  from the southern end of thc  Sunshine Coust should keep a  driver sober.  rezoning of the portion should not be allowed.

At the March 30  meeting of the Regional Board  the directors learned that  Municipal Affairs Minister  Hugh Curtis viewed the  Revenue Sharing Act as a  means to move responsibilities for policing costs to local  communities.  The expressed concern was  over whether this move would  prove to be equitable, that is  whether sufficient revenues  would be provided to cover the  increased costs to the local  government or whether local  taxes would rise as they did  recently when more of the  school taxes were shifted to  the local taxpayer.  ***************  NDP  Gibsons Harbour Area  Great Canadian and  British Paperbacks  886-7744  s*************** Granny's  Sunday Dinner  JU���   Roast turkey, stuffed.

Of weapons and war  Once again the men whose  main mission seems to be to defend the Western nations against  nuclear attack are talking of  weapons and the possibility of  war. The major Western power,  the United States, is spending  billions on a nuclear and thermonuclear weapons system that  almost certainly will never be  used.  Thc U.S.Navy's latest toy is  the first Triden submarine, now  under construction by the Electric Boat Company in Groton,  Connecticut. The Trident is an  18,700-ton vessel that will carry  twenty-four nuclear-tipped missiles. Thc price tag for the 560-  foot long submarine will be about  $1.2 billion. One uf the Trident  program directors. Rear Admiral  Donald P.Hall, estimates thc  U.S.Navy will spend $22 billion  on thirteen such submarines.  And in Europe.

Thc topic of the lecture was  the work he and his family  arc doing with the underprivileged and earthquake victims in Guatemala.  One of thc main points he  made was that although the  earthquake occurred two  years ago, the  medical and  clean up work still goes on.  Over a million people are still  in dire need of help. The major problems are unsanitary  overcrowding, with the chances of a cholera epidemic  great, plus a completely  altered lifestyle for those  affected.  The slide presentation  was not pretty; it showed  dead and injured people,  but then it was a plea for  help and understanding for  those afflicted and not put on  for its entertainment value.

Another ominous note was  struck by John W.Taylor, the editor of Jane's all the World's  Aircraft, who has warned that  President Carter's decision to  scrap thc B-l strategic bomber  could help to bring about a  Western defeat if a general  nuclear war breaks out. Mr.  Taylor puts the bill for a fleet of  244 of thc B-l bombers at $28  billion.  Other nations, especially those  in thc Warsaw pact, cannot be  excused from our condemnation  for this dealing in death. The  sum being spent on both sides in  a war of nerves that may become a war of bullets, bombs and  other horrific weapons, boggles  thc mind. Sad though il is. the  nations of thc world arc not yet  united. And therefore one cannot  pretend that governments will  abandon the arms race that is  causing such a fearful drain on  global resources.  But it is thc scale of weapons  construction that must be reduced. Thc thirteen Trident  submarines, when completed.  will carry still another .112 nuclear  missiles to be added to the already awesome total. If the world  is lo make progress Inward  nuclear disarmament, the men  who like to speak of weapons and  war ��� especially of cataclysmic  war ��� must be silenced. World  war today is highly unlikely if  not Impossible, And those who  want even more and lugger  weapons are only asking for  trouble.  Regional review  The Elphinstone Electors  Association needs your help to  put together a brief for the Hearing on Regional Districts which  comes to Sechelt on May 8, 1978  (briefs to be submitted before  April 24) and will meet for this  purpose in Cedar Grove Elementary School, Chaster Road,  Thursday, April 6 at 8 p.m.  Whatever you think about any  level of Government, local  government plays an important  part in our lives. No one likes  rules and regulations, it's likely  most of us have disagreed with  the Regional Board al one lime or  another, bin thev are here.  Remember thc old days when  the "unorganized" territory was  administered from Victoria?  We had no water system, no  regular garbage collection, thc  neighbourhood cattle roamed  the roads and not infrequently  played havoc in flower gardens,  letters to Victoria received thc  usual political run-around and if  one wanted help it was usually  necessary to appear in the Capital in person to get any action.  The Regional Board, however  far it falls short of perfection,  and obviously no level of Government can please all thc people  all the time, is here. We can attend thc meetings, pick up lhc  phone and call the office for  free, or talk personally with our  Area Director.  It has been widely rumoured  the Social Credit Government  wants to abolish Regional Districts, relieve us of local control  of our affairs and administer  such areas from centralized offices again. Whether this is  true or not, you have thc right  and privilege to express your  personal opinion, and thc more  people who exercise their democratic rights and have their  say at such public Hearings the  better the democratic system  works.  It is customary for groups such  as the Electors Association to  make representation also on your  behalf if you so desire, so if you  live outside the Village of Gibsons  and cast of the Cemetery conic to  Thursday's meeting. Whether  you're satisfied with the present  regime or have some better ideas.  arc a home owner or tenant,  everyone is welcome. Your input is needed. It's no use just  grumbling, now you have an  opportunity lo make your opinions count.  Coast News, April 4,1978 7.

Because of thc absence of horses  on the highways, the average  motorist has no idea how to  behave when approaching a  horse. We recommend the motorist slow down and pass by as  you would a group of bicyclists.  In no instance is the use of the  horn recommended. This could  cause the horse to rear up or  bolt into the traffic involving you  in a serious accident.  Riders should be familiar with  traffic laws. Horses are not welcome on shop parking lots, public parks or any place of business. One or two infringements  of this kind give all horse owners  a had name.  RIDERS:  Be sure to cheek with property  owners before crossing private  property, (are must he taken  with your horse when first trail  riding in the spring; remember,  your horse has had a few months  of inactivity so will not he able to  do a great deal of work at first,  lake it easy with him as he will  need to build up his muscles and  lungs gradually.  Many times we see young  children riding in hare feet, with  no saddle and more than one  child on thc horse. Parents  should be more responsible in  seeing that the children ride  safely and use some common  sense.  A child without a saddle has no  secure way of staying on thc  horse should the animal jump  sideways, or bolt away from a  dog or any frightening object.  Thc child will probably be thrown  onto the road. Many toes have  been broken by horses stepping  on hare feet. Doubling on the  horse is not only dangerous, it  is very hard on the horse.  We would like to ask that horse  owners and thc parents of children who have horses, really  use "Horse sense" so that 1M78  will be fun for thc horse owner  and the rest of the community  alike.  Rugby club  The Gibsons Rugby Club  Ill's opened their playoffs with  a decisive win over Vancouver  Trojans Saturday at Langdale  Field. Hard tackling, hard running and a refusal to give away  thc ball were Gibsons' strong  points. Trojans, a fast, fit  young team won a fair share of  the ball in both scrum and line-  out bul consistently kicked  away the advantage. The final  result was a ln-n victory for Gibsons. The playoffs continue next  week against Tsawassen. a very  strong team that gave Gibsons  a sound beating last time out.  ^CLOSING OUT*  SALE  �� All fabric shower curtains  $15.95  -fr All vinyl shower curtains  L $9.98  / it All mats and tank sets $12.95  ft Seat covers    King.���  $6.95  Reg.���    $5.95  !��.

It is the  dream of many young riders  to become a factory rider and  have a mechanic to wrench  his bike; unfortunately it is  doubtful if there are more than  two or three riders in Canada  who are so lucky. I've seen  riders spend a small fortune  on trick equipment then have  the bike fail due to lack of  basic servicing.  When on a consistent weekly race schedule most riders  have developed a procedure  for bike preparation. This  usually starts the day after  lhc race. If you are like me,  you are still too stiff and  sore to ride Monday so this  is a perfect time to clean and  check your bike. Any faults  noticed during a race will  still be fresh in your mind,  also if parts are required  they should be obtained as  soon as possible. If you wait  till Saturday to gei them you  may spend Sunday spectat-  ing.  During this clean up period, you should check carefully for broken or loose parts.  Tuesday, Wednesday and  Thursday, what time can be  devoted to bikes should be  spent riding. This is the time  to make adjustments to the  bike and to perfect any new  riding technique you may  want to use on Sunday. All  changes should be made before Friday. This day should  be spent perfecting your riding changes and adjusting to  any changes made to the bike.  If time permits you should  ride long and hard. Fill your  gas tank and ride until it is  empty; during this time you  should practice conserving  your energy, rest without  stopping. (With age you  begin to suspect energy is a  non-renewable resource and  efficiency becomes more  important.) Try to finish this  practice period in a positive  frame of mind. By doing  something you enjoy doing,  a long wheelie, a jump, a  tight corner or even by passing a slower rider, if one is  around.  For Saturday I have two  hard and fast rules: one. don't  ride the bike and two, don't  make any more major changes. This includes changing  fork oil or pressure. Saturday  should be spent if possible  relaxing while servicing your  bike. Thc spokes, the steering head, the bars, the chain,  the air filter and the tire  pressure should be checked  and serviced. Tire pressure  should be about 10 PSI dependent upon the track, but  never less than 9 PSI or you  can expect rim damage. The  number plates should be  made to conform.   The side  Hand in hand at the finish line and looking  as fresh as daisies Fran Berger and George  Matthews trot into Sechelt at the end of their  stirring victory over improbability. To lessen the chances of their success we even  threw a party the previous night but nothing  could daunt the indomitable two. Fran  stayed longer at the party than the bon  vivant George.

Thev are often  only held by two small bolts.  During the week you should  have adjusted your brake  and gear shift levers to suit  you, now make sure they are  secure to their shafts.  For good stalls lhc clutch  adjustment is very important.  It should have been set during  the week also, and check  Saturday that the lock mil is  tight so that it will nol change  during the race. If anything  was don with lhc wheels or  tires during the week double  check lhal you have made  them secure. For thc rear  axle use al least an 18"  wrench.

Ouick Facts about  WAGNER SHOWS  Mark and Don Wagner are thc  Canadian counterpart of the Ring-  ling Brothers of Circus fame.

WAGNER SHOWS is Ihe largest motorized carnival in Western  Canada. The Show plays to over  eighty centres from Victoria,  B.C. to Thompson, Manitoba.

Marv Ctissin  My earliest recollections of  Mrs. Husby concern her love  of children. This in fact, is  how I firsl made her acqain-  lance. She was often surrounded by litem in those  clays. She was firm but kind  with them. Thai was back in  in thc 40's. Many were the  limes she look care of Martin,  my youngest son for me and  refused to lake a penny for  il.  I remember an incident during the earthquake in 1946  when Mrs. Husby was looking after Martin, while I  was in town seeing my lawyer.  On my return she told me  what had happened. She was  out in thc garden apparently  with Martin on the swing.  Neither of them noticed the  quake at firsl as the swing  was moving. I was on Ihe Union Steamship boat returning  home and noticed nothing.  I wondered why they had  slopped the engines but thai  was all, on a boat that size  It was hardly perceptible. My  son Chris told me when I got  home, thai he had been  thrown out of bed.   Someone  else said ihat they had seen  a row boat go up in the air.  Many were Ihe tales Mrs.  Husby would tell me of her  early pioneer days, enough  to write a hook about (which  she did. though it was never  published). Ron Thody, a  journalist friend, of ours,  while hoarding wilh Mrs.  Husby. typed out her manuscript for her. Il was entitled  "The Adventures of Mary  Lou" and mosl exciting it  was. Hon really enjoyed doing  it for her. He would remark  sometimes: "I have been on  another adventure with Mrs.  Husby today." or words to  lhal effect; he got so involved  in the story.  Mary Lou Husby was born  wilh a silver spoon in her  mouth in a Swiss castle,  the daughter of a Swiss Count.  Mrs. Husby's family first  emigrated to the States she  said, and she told me how  hard she had worked helping  lo develop her father's property. She described how they  had once lived in a large tent  in Juno. Alaska, and how surprisingly warm it was inside  but how cold oul. Once she  got both her legs frost bitten  while out hiking. Fortunately  she suffered no lasting  effects. I was most intrigued  with some of her talcs, which  were much like thc wild Wesl  stories of which one hears.  She would loll of men getting  away with murder. One man  she spoke of had killed three  people and got away with it.  Mrs. Husby's description of  an alpine garden on top of a  glacier much impressed me.  I was shown photographs  of her in thc men's pants  she wore hiking, long before  it was customary for women  to dress that way. She could  also handle a gun and went  hunting with thc men. She  told me how she cleared land  and helped to build roads.  Mrs. Husby was quite psychic. She told me how once  while returning from a neighbour's her Hash light went  out and yet there was a light  thai shone in front of her all  Ihe way home.  There was a beautiful  view of thc ocean from her  breakfast nook where we  would sil having a cup of  tea while she told stories  of her pioneering days. Her  family used to be wealthy and  there was a time when her  father owned three gold  mines.  One time I remember her  telling me how during the  Depression. Doc Inglis (father of Drs. Hugh and Alan)  while visiting patients, would  find them sometimes near  starving. One lady, having  nothing else to offer the  good doctor, gave him boiled  water as she had no tea and  boiled potatoes as she had no  bread. And we think wc have  it hard sometimes and still  grumble. Mrs. Husby went  on to say that the lady in  question later received the inevitable hamper from the doctor.  To augment her income  Mrs. Husby started to take  in boarders. She looked alter  them well, and always had a  good table. In spile of Ihis.  wilh all her kindness she once  was robbed of her old age  pension by some ungrateful  boarder. I met some interesting people while visiting Mrs.  Husby. I made my first  acquaintance with priests  while there. Not being a  Catholic myself, il was quite  an experience.  Mrs. Husby loved gardening. She had a lovely garden  al one lime; quite a profusion  of dowers. It was a delight  to see. Mrs. Husby never  got used lo such things as  electric washing machines  and preferred doing things  by hand. I would ask her  sometimes why she was not  using her machine and was  told il did nol work. One day  she announced that she had  jusl been chased by her automatic washer, which had gone  out of control. She had had to  jump into Ihe bathtub until the  cycle slopped. Don Hauka  would be called in again to  fix it. Don was always ready  in an emergency, hut according to her it would just go  wrong again. Mrs. Husby  had a greal sense of humour  though, the way she would  tell a story like that.  Though no longer with us  she still lives in my memory.  In Ihe spring, when thc  (lowers bloom again. I think  of her.  Coast News,April 4, 1978  9.  are you  Ready  WHY WAIT 'TIL SPRING....DO IT NOW!  -   Decorative Fir Bark Mulch   ^.

Vou say I  am continually seeking to present  the Board Members as "men  lacking in both intelligence and  integrity" and you also apply the  appelation of cretinous to boot,  strong stuff John; but I think  maybe you just may have dozed  off for a while. In any case you  overlook that you did in fact  print my letter of 15 December in  which I said in part. "Contrary  to some widely held opinions, for  the most part, they are not a  bunch of crackpots, knuckle-  heads, dictators, and or layabouts on the Board for the princely $25.00per week, but some well  dedicated men who will not go  along with the board just to be  nice or whatever". Ihc'fait that  I disagree with some ot the items  of legislation means that they  disagree with me also:    that is  NEW'-  their right.  So please tell me John, where  did 1 go wrong? That admirable  young man on your staff. Ian  Corrance, interviewed me in  my home in October, and at the  same time took one of the One  Thousand printed programs of  my aims and ambitions, the  philosophy accepted by the electors. This very same philosophy  I carry out in all my dealings with  the hoard, and the public, and  will continue so to do. It was and  is all there plain as the nose on  your face, I have a feeling  John, that you find it quite incredible that any one would  ever contemplate implementing  election promises, once having  been elected to office. What  other "enlightenment" do you  require ol mc? What about  public debate tor instance, you  ��?TURE-TREAD        ^  ������!��  k*-'V:..'.> ���  Now!  ... a textured, self-vulcanizing rubber,  seamless deck coating, you ROLL-ON in  two easy coats.

I can only  say, "Parochial my Butt". The  great accord after years of friction between Gibsons and the  Board, you so glowingly wrote  about in your paper, was my  effort culminating in supper at  my house before the "historic"  joint Board Village meeting  Those present: Harry Almond;  Jack Marshall; and Mayor Lome  Blaine. Reading some of the  newspapers since. I feel that we  would all have been better  served had we got tanked up at  the house and presented ourselves, drunk as lords at thc  meeting; at least we would have  made some history, had some  laughs, instead of getting all  this flack.  You ask me, What is the  future of the Board? Let's  jusl say there is a remedy for  everything other than death, and  wlth your well-known philosophy  John, you well know that turmoil eventually turns up such a  remedy. . Currently there are  several being bruited abroad.  You ask what is my philosophy? As far as thc Regional  Board is concerned, it is quite  simple. First this is not a political  job on the board. What politics?  It is strictly a form of business,  with 12,500 shareholders (the  peoplcl and eight Directors, one  principal source of revenue (Port  Mellon) and same Servicing  monies from the Provincial  Government. What the shareholders get for their money is  the responsibility of the Directors  good business direction, good  dividends ��� bad direction, wc  go "Bust". Personal ambitions,  political or financial have no place  on the Regional Board. Balance  and proportion is the name of the  game. Yes John, money, that's  it. We are going to lose all our  young people to Vancouver, and  just nothing is going to happen  here. Sure we love the most  beautiful scenery in B.C. and  many other finer things in life,  but we can't eat it. We have to  have funds just to keep ahead of  the current inflation, already  those least able to afford it are in  grave trouble trying to keep  heads above water, and that  segment reputedly represents  some 60% of the people in the  Regional District. I am of course  referring to those on Fixed Income, add to this the low income  struggling young persons, young  family people, the proud poor and  you don't end up with very  many people who can afford to  say I don't agree with the business analogy set out above.  John, I have tried to give you  a fairly concise run-down on the  subject matter as I know you to  be a personally well concerned  person of feeling and depth of  perception, and as you so kindly  asked me publicly to declare my  "ARTICLES OF FAITH". I am  sure you will just as publicly  publish them.  Charles Lee  Director  Area "C"  Dear Sir:  We are trying to communicate  with all former students of our  community. Would you please  print this letter in your paper?  This year, the Town of New  Liskeard, Ontario is planning its  75th birthday, and in conjunction with these festivities, a  School Homecoming event is  programmed.  All former students and staff  who attended any school in New  Liskeard. at any time, are invited to participate. It is anticipated that the New Liskeard  Secondary School will be open for  hosting visitations on Saturday,  July 1st. A mammoth dance and  reunion is planned in thc town  arena that evening.  To assist the Planning Committee in finalizing arrangements  and to have your name put on our  attendance list, please contact the  New  Liskeard  School  Homecoming,  P.O.Box 730.  NEW LISKEARD. Ontario.  P0J1P0  Would you please forward the  names and addresses of other  former New Liskeard students  and staff of which you are aware,  who will want to take part in  this event?  Jack Willars,  Chairman,  N.L.School Homecoming.  Expediency  Dear Sir:  One of thc nastiest little bits of  political expediency to come along for some time is the series  of newspaper ads directed at  "those who think thev can cheat  the U.I."  In a time of massive unemployment in the country the government's response is to make  scapegoats of thc unemployed  themselves, trying to focus the  resentment of thc public against  them, instead of where it should  go, against Pierre Trudeau and  his Liberal government. It is  their lack of concern and action  that have caused unemployment  figures to soar, to a Anally admitted 'one million plus'.  The unemployed make an easy  target, unable to defend themselves from the implications of  dishonesty in these ads.  Bud Cullen, thc Minister  responsible for Unemployment  and Emigration, would be well  advised to channel the money  and   energy   wasted   on   these  HANDYMAN  looking for odd jobs.

NDP Candidate,  Comox-Pow;ell River  About arena  Editor:  This statement is an attempt on  my part, as the President of the  Sunshine Coast Recreation Association, to dispel the fog of misinformation and lack of knowledge that seems to cloak the  Arena.  There are 260 men playing  various hockey leagues; 280 lads  in Minor Hockey, 100 girls and  boys in the Figure Skating  Club, public skating draws 175  weekly, the indian Band has 100  regular users and the schools  have 760 users.* The Curling  Club has 815 regular members,  including school students, seniors  and ladies. And no. Virginia,  Ihcy won't fit into the Gibsons  rink. In fact, the reason wc entered an expansion plan in the  upcoming recreation referendum  is so the club could grow. It  would also allow the Arena to  streamline its whole operation by  eliminating Ihe costly weekly  change over from skating to curling ice and freezing 2'/i days of  ice time for hockey, skating.  Now, one can sec by thc figures  above that, unlike the two lard-  bellies watching kids playing  hockey on the road because they  couldn't be bothered driving  into the "boondocks of Sechelt"  as depicted in a stupid cartoon  in one of our local papers a few  weeks back, a good percentage  of the whole peninsula population is enthused enough to come  to use our first class arena. Since  thc whole peninsula is boondocks. 1 think the arena is pretty  well placed near the centre of it  all. Soon the road will be paved  all the way (won't it Mr. Van  Egmond?) making the drive more  pleasant.  Because the arena is totally  subsidized, and the Association  has no borrowing power (imagine  trying to run a million dollar  plant without a line of credit),  and thc Village of Sechell doesn't  have the lax base to support ils  operation, thc Board of Directors  spends hundreds of unpaid hours  trying to keep the place solvent.  That has been done in the past  by keeping costs to a minimum,  and by charging users a pretty  stiff ice rent compared to subsidized rinks.  Now. for some reason if thc  arena showed a scries of losses,  or thc Association decided because it's a well used public  facility, let thc public run it, or  thc fees got so high people  couldn't afford to use it, thc Village of Sechelt could end up with  thc biggest meat cooler in B.C..  and kids would be waiting for,  Trout Lake to freeze again.  (How soon we forget.I  I think thc Arena is too important an asset to the peninsula to  allow that to happen. It has an  annual operation budget of about  $130,000.00 of which half is  wages, mostly spent locally.  The spin-off business it generates  for sporting goods stores, motels,  restaurants. food suppliers,  trades people, to name a few  has to be substantial (it is a proven fact it helped reduce juvenile  problems, too).  This winter the Arena's fortunes were equated with thc  Gales. It's Irue. if everything  had gone according to plan, it  would have been a great year for  both, but because they were  booked in prime time their  problems wilh team cancellations  became our problems with no  customers in the snack bar and  in the Porpoise Room. In spite of  a few setbacks thc Arena is having a strong finish for thc season,  with a busy 35 rink Easter Bonspiel. a very well attended Figure  Skating Carnival, etc. I don't  want to leave anyone out. We  appreciate all our customers,  including the Chamber of Commerce using our banquet room.  I'll close by commending our  manager. Eric Wilson, and his  whole staff for an excellent job  done. I hope they arc all back  next season. Also a word of appreciation to all the volunteer  coaches and committee members  who make the peninsula a great  place to grow up. I would like to  see thc press do a few positive  articles about people like these  and spare us the negativism  unless thev have legitimate  reasons lor criticism.  Our General Meeting date has  been changed to Thursday,  April 27ih. 7:30 p.m.. with the  hope a few more debenture  holders, than Ihe dozen at last  year's meeting, will show up.  * I here arc also 400 lo 500 spectators weekly, some of whom  cannot afford more sophisticated  entertainment.  Brian l.owen. President  Sunshine Coasl Recreation Assn.  Gratitude  Dear Sir:  On Tuesday. March 14, the  restaurant at Irvine's Landing  was damaged by fire.  This letter is to publicly acknowledge our gratitude, appreciation and sincere thanks to the  Volunteer Fire Departments of  Garden Bay and Madeira Park.  The fire occurred at 4 a.m., but  both departments arrived in  the shortest possible time, and,  thanks to them the building was  saved. None of us realize how  much we owe these volunteers  until we need them in a hurry.  To all our friends and neighbours in Irvine's Landing, we also  owe a large "Thank you".  All of you were a great help  to us ��� wc shall not forget your  efforts. Ken White must be  singled out for special praise,  as without his knowledge, guidance and physical help there  would have been nothing left  for the fire departments to work  on. Thanks, Ken!  To everyone, our sincerest  thanks ��� we owe you all a great  deal.

Can these resentful feelings go away?  Outraged  Dear Outraged:  Unfortunately from the many  couples I've known over the  years, in all walks of life ��� this  unpleasant occurrence is a reality  in an unbelievable number ol  couples' lives. 1 think it is because of frustration on the male's  part. A woman verbalizes her  displeasures because she can't  haul off and clobber her mate.  He being needled and not being  as vocal as she, just settles his  pent up feelings with a slap.  This can be overcome and not  to arouse this force is the answer.  If any mark or injury remains  I think absenting oneself from  the scene, is inevitable: when  fear enters a relationship, love  goes out the window. That's  my opinion of course. There are  people who enjoy being banged  about - those I can't explain.  If you're not numbered among  formal entertainment, there will  be a raffle featuring six major  prizes which include a two-weck  all expense paid trip for two to  Hawaii, a colour T.V.set, and two  ten speed Puigeot bicycles.  See you there!  Nell Whaitcs  QkLVefi AOTs 660Y  BBG-7199  We handle I.C.B.C. claims.  this group talk it out and avoid  pushing him.  Dear Ann:  I'm young and a woman and I  like to do varied things and meet  interesting people. My boyfriend  is jealous and misconstrues this  adventure in living as flirting and  playing the field. How can I  have my cake and eat it too?  Determined  Dear Determined:  Well lots of women share your  view point today. Self-gratification and self realization  are their code in life, opposed to  our mothers' day when service  and the desire to please were  their code. Men are supposedly  always looking for their mothers,  symbolically of course. The comfort, the security, the out-pouring  of love and attention, the loving  pride in their accomplishments  and small victories. I think everyone would like these qualities in  a relationship but men arc providers and protectors traditionally, and still want a home and  castle. Women who furnish this  refreshing, bolstering retreat  gct the man and keep him - that's  one thing one has to make a  choice about. A self-centered,  self-serving person may not  hold or even get a man - Everyone's choice, to be or not to be.  Dear Ann:  I know you've dealt with Ihis  problem before. I have a lover  younger than I am. I being a  woman get criticism, and don't  always know how to deal with it.  My friends are full of advice,  mostly negative. How should I  handle this verbally?  May it December  Dear December:  This is a changing attitude.  There was a book titled, In  Defense of the Older Woman,  obviously the men have been  trading their 40-year old wives  inon2-20'sforsometimc and it's  accepted. Women reach their  peak after 30. Men at teenage.  I am speaking of sex of course.  So it seems the December woman  has the advantage with a young  man. The liberated woman will  learn to deal with her friends.  It's just what one gets used to.  As of present thc average age of  women at death is ten years  older than the average man.  So in time to keep down the growing population of widows, it may  be the popular thing to marry or  pair off with the younger man.  There are too many lonely women finishing their lives alone.

By this time, thc  MLAs usually have argued out  the Throne Speech which is  the government's general  statement policy and the Budget, and would have started  to work on the department-by-  department debates on spending.

Here, the government is  going into the new fiscal year  without any parliamentary  approval to spend a cent.  Their tactic, of course, will  be to introduce an interim  supply bill to gct a portion of  the budget to pay thc bills for  thc few months and they will  force it through with the  weight of the majority in the  house but without proper  public consideration of how  and why the money is being  spent.  It has become clear that Mr.  Bennett docs not like the  legislature very much and will  avoid il as much as possible.  Rather than take part in the  debate, use thc ample opportunities to introduce and  defend government policies  and programs before his peers  thc other elected representatives of thc people, hc prefers the grand presidential  style.  His "State of the Province"  addresses are an example of  thc style he prefers. Last  January his six man press  relations staff staged the latest of these "media events".  The television networks gave  him free time, hand-picked  right-wing reporters were  carefully seated in an arena,  sitting far enough apart to  look like a large crowd, and  then at the signal of his  press secretary, he pranced  into Ihe theatre, well made up  and glowing with a southern  tan, and delivered the news  that things arc great and will  get better. The friendly  press asked him a few questions, and then it was all over.  Not a word about the S200  million overruns that were  building up ��� which came to  light later because of opposition and less friendly press  doing some digging into Social  Credit accounts. Not a word  about the fact that thousands  of students getting out of  school this year will have no  work. Not a word about the  twenty mortgage foreclosures  a day that arc building up.  If he had delivered his  state of the province address  in the legislature, he would  have had to explain these  omissions. His make-up man.  his press secretary, his reporter friends would nol have  been able to help.
