The Forum took thc form of a display of students' work on the  subject of solid waste disposal, some music provided bv local  musicians, and a panel discussion. The panel discussion was  recorded by Delta Community Television mid will be aired locally later over Channel 10.  Panel members were Regional Director George Gibb: Mr,  B.Mason. Ik-ad of the Services Section of lhc Municipal Branch  of lhc Pollution Control Hoard; Pal Benjamin, n professional  Waste Disposal Consultant hired by the Regional Board as a  consultant on decisions affecting Inline wuste disposal on ihe  Sunshine Coast; and Brel McGillivray, a concerned residenl ul  Roberls (reck.  The format called for statements Irom the panel members  after which the Forum was thrown open lo questions and  comments from the public.  In his opening .statement  governmeni representative  Mason contented himself  with saying that his department was in essence a regulatory body enforcing the Pollution Control Act. He stated  that the department was in  the process of getting into  Waste Management but at  present was in a transitional  period. Engineer Benjamin  said that he believed in public participation in waste  disposal decisions.  McGillivray from Roberts  Creek pointed out that just  over one hundred years  ago the English were irate  because a law was passed  saying that they could no  longer throw their garbage  out of their windows into  thc street and that some such  radical change was not necessary. Specifically McGillivray said that most attention  should be focussed on some  method of reducing thc  amount of garbage produced.  He!" pointed" out that those  who separated their garbage  were charged as much for  waste removal as those who  did not, producing in the process three times as much  waste.  Regional Director Gibb,  whose responsibility it is to  supervise waste disposal on  the Sunshine Coast, stressed  the immediacy of the problem  here on the Sunshine Coast.  Hc pointed out that present  landfill sites had a projected  life of one-and-a-half years if  burning on site at the present  levels is allowed. Further,  said Gibb, given the terrain  of the Sunshine Coast new  landfill sites were very difficult to obtain. He said that  it cost $130,000 per year  last year for waste disposal  and that when the requisite  machines were considered the  cost would be as much as  $250,000 ��� if a new landfill  site could be found.  Director Gibb also pointed  out that some changes  would he necessary in thc attitudes of the public. "American beer cans can be recycled," said Gibb, "bul  Canadian beer cans cannot."  He pointed out that this was  so as a result of pressure  by American consumer  groups. "In the long run,"  said Gibb, "we are going to  have to get into resource  recovery. At the moment we  are getting nothing. Wc arc  burying resources in the  ground."  "Whatever wc do." concluded Gibb, "is going to  cost more than it has before."  Some differences of opinion  on thc panel and among thc  public were apparent when  thc meeting was thrown open  to the public. Particularly  divisive were the subjects of  incineration and recycling  or resource recovery. Director Gibb pointed out that incineration could be relatively  pollution free and that sonic  of the heat generated by incineration could be used to  heat public buildings. Brett  McGillivray and some  meni-  The magic of Christmas was apparent in the faces  of children in the Sunnycrest Mall when Santa  Claus made his appearance last Saturday.  School opening  The pictures above and below show some of the weaponry brought to the Gibsons  and Sechelt police stations during the amnesty last month.  _  The official opening ceremonies for the new Pender  Harbour Secondary School  took place on Friday, December I.  The main speaker, well-  loved former principal Frances  Fleming, gave a heartfelt  history of education In the  Harbour and her hopes for  its future, which left those  present with a feeling of  pride and community spirit.  With her style of refusing to  beat about Ihe bush. Ms  Fleming did not gloss over the  fact that thc area was made up  of individuals who by their  very natures found il difficult  to conform, but she felt that  with "fair play for all and  responsibility for one's actions, good and bad," the  school could look forward to  thc same public cooperation  she had received.  Mr. I.es Canty from Ihe  Ministry of Education, symbolically passed thc key for  thc school into the hands ol  Don Douglas, thc Chairman  of the School Trustees.  Hc  pointed out that the burning  of the old school could be seen  in some ways as a blessing in  disguise. Now with the improved facilities, the facilities could be of school and  public benefit eighteen hours  a day.  The ribbon-cutting was  performed by Mrs. Fleming,  This was followed by a tour of  inspection with the students  acting in the capacity of  hosts.  Retraction  A few weeks ago on the  occasion of Director Charles  Lee's resignation from the  Recreation Committee wc  editorialized and found fault  wilh what seemed to us  Director Lee's blanket criticism of members of (he committee.  In subsequent discussion  with and cxaminalion of thc  notes of Director Lee wc arc  satisfied that in large pari the  Coast News was in error.  One-time Principal of Pender Harbour Secondary  School, Frances Fleming, was in fine form last week  when she officiated at opening q! the new school.  hers ol thc audience lilt  strongly thai a programme ol  recycling should bc a priorit)  since no adequali decision  could be made until ii was  clearly established what  solid wastes wen.- unavoid-  able and what could be recovered and recycled.  Director Charles 1 ci spoki  informatively on the subject  ol "Garbage for Fun and  Profit". He outlined thc  various use. lhal could b<  made in Ihe home nl materials  presently tin own away.  Included were such items ils  rolled paper logs constructed  from combustibles and wash  paper and a hnsl ol oilier  uses which, said thc Director,  were nol theoretical in ilk  least bin actually practised  in his own home.  Again panel member Mc  Gillivray fell thai persuasion  and education would not prove  adequate in convening the  public to such uses of their  waste materials. "Somehow  recycling or resource recovery  should be institutionalized"'  said McGillivray "It should  be enforced, brought into the  legal structure.  Director Gibb, while lauding thc contributions ol whai  he called the philosophers  on the subject, pointed oul  thai he had the problem of  deciding whai to do with thc  one hundred-and-leii  tons of wastes produced even  week on thc Sunshine (oast.  "It is important to know whai  the federal and provincial  governments arc prepared to  do to make packaging more  recyclable, but in the mean  time we have this one Iniu-  drcd-and-tcn tons ol garbage  and we are in need of a solu  lion urgently."  Liberal Member of Parliament, .lack Pearsall. applaud  ed the initiative being show n  by the young people of Elphinstone and agreed with  Director Gibb thai hcai produced by incineration could bc  utilized.  On the subject of packaging,  he said thai two parliamentary  committees in Oltawa were ai  present working on the ques  lion of packaging. "We musl  remember thai packaging K  a process of making monev.  however."     said      Pearsall.  Mr. Mason of thc Pollution  Control Branch pointed olii  there had been what he calleil  a brave attempt at recycling  on thc Sunshine Coast Iwo  years ago and that the pro  vincial governmeni had sup  plied grants matching the aid  given lhc project by lhc local  government. "For some t-cti  son the Regional Hoard wilh  drew ils support, however,"  said Mason, "and the pro  gramme was dropped,"  Donna Shugar Irom Roberts  (leek In ought loi ward Mil  point, with Hi. ii McGllli  vray's support, thai il tech  nological solutions rather lhan  changes m aliunde were  sought then conceivably  tins  would   not   lead   In   a   fcdtlc  lion in thc waste of resources.  "More garbage might mean  cheaper disposal and lead lo  garbage being seen as a social  good rather than a social  evil." said McGillivray.  One ol the lasl speakers ai  the microphone was Bruct  Culver nl Wesl Vancouver  who is associated with Wesl  Vancouver Recycling. He  pointed out thai his organization was being strongly  supported bj thc West Vancouver Municipal Council  who were financing a public  education programme because  thev fell ii imperative i" cul  down the volume ol wasp,  materials.

Advertising Department:  Penny Christian  BLUE  RIBBON  AWARD  The forum on waste disposal  Close attention paid to the Community  Forum held at Elphinstone Secondary  School w as w ell rewarded. Some very real  illumination on the nature of the problem,  present and lo come, was definitely  forthcoming.  The most attractive stance at firsl  glance was that of the people in favour ol  recycling. Of course, in a plane! with  finite natural resources thc criminal  waste thai takes place in North America  and on the Sunshine Coast of materials  which could be salvaged cannot go on. It  must come to an end and thc sooner thc  better. Bret McGillivray and Charles  Lcc who spoke strongly in favour of thc  recycling process, or the recovery ol  resources process ��� perhaps a happier  phrase ��� were absolutely right when  they stressed that the process should  begin in the individual home. Lcc felt  that it could be done by educating the  public while McGillivray felt that some  sort of 'institutionalization' would be  necessary. Both approaches should be  utilized and utilized with a minimum of  delay.  The advantages of separating thc  waste materials in the home arc multiple.  First, there are the finite resources  which could be recovered and utilized;  secondly, the cost of waste disposal could  be dramatically reduced if the waste were  reduced and, as was generally agreed,  these arc costs which every taxpayer is  going to become increasingly aware of in  the near future; and finally thc available  land for landfill will be available for disposal of necessities for a longer time.  The argument in favour of incineration  would seem to be similar. It would require the sorting of wastes because some,  like tin and glass, won't burn and this  sorting is done nowhere more easily  than it is in the individual home. Further,  in the production of heat energy some  return will be realized on materials that  we now throw away.  But it is also necessary to heed the plea  of Director George Gibb who is charged  with the responsibility of making recommendations to the governing board  on the subject of waste disposal. It is  not just an academic exercise. One  hundrcd-and-ten tons of solid waste per  .veek must be disposed of and must be  disposed of in Ihe short term while we  seek long-term solutions. If we on the  Sunshine Coast are to find viable long-  term solutions we will have to waste no  time.  On another track, wc found the representative of the provincial government,  as was the case on herbicides, taking  refuge in thc claim that his was just a  regulatory body. The only person on the  panel accepting a high salary at taxpayers' expense in connection with  waste disposal was the one who seemed  to be dragging behind the unpaid and  virtually unpaid members of the panel.  Finally, everyone at thc Forum was  full of praise, and rightly so, of the students' efforts which made it possible.  It is fair to say that Director George  Gibb deserves a great deal of respect and  credit for the role he has played in bringing the matter of waste disposal to the  forefront of public attention. When he  became a member of the Regional  Board and was given the responsibility ot  thc Garbage Committee, the question of  new landfill sites had been before the  Board for a long time and thc mood of  the directors was in favour of a speedy  compromise of the matter but George got  his teeth into it, did some research, and it  is fair to say that if he had not insisted on  serious consideration this area would  have taken another stop-gap solution  which would have solved nothing. It is  a great pleasure to state strongly that thc  people of the Sunshine Coast have been  very well served by Director Gibb.  When the student who chaired the  panel discussion, Carl Johnson, made his  closing remarks he thanked the Superintendent of Schools, John Denley, and  the Regional Board for their support  along with a host of other dignitaries ol  greater or lesser note. With all due respect to Carl, one name was left out which  should have been mentioned. When  things go wrong in schools teachers are  blamed and it seems only just, when  students delight their elders with their  competence and their enthusiasm, that  the teacher who motivated them should  be brought forward for a bow for a job  well done. The prime motivator in the  high school was teacher Marta McKown.  She, too, deserves the congratulations  and gratitude of us all.  Nonetheless, as George Gibb would  undoubtedly remind us, when the credit  due has been paid and thc ideas brought  forward and the issues discussed there  remains over one hundred tons of solid  waste accumulating every week that must  be disposed of. Thc final test of the  Forum and of the population of the  Sunshine Coast will come in the foreseeable future when hard and expensive  decisions must be made. May our decision-makers in this regard have the  benefit of a concerned and informed  electorate. They deserve it and we all  need it.  from the files of Coast News  5 YEARS AGO  A delegation of concerned citizens appeared at the Regional Board  Meeting last Thursday to protest the  despoilation of the Chapman Creek  watershed area. According to the  presentation, one block of timber was  to be taken under a provincial licence  bul in fact three blocks were taken  and the logging was done right to  the banks of the creek which will  supply water to a wide section of the  Sunshine Coast.  Regional Planner Ed Cuylits reports no progress in the attempts  to get a bulk oil storage plant for the  Sunshine Coast.  10 YEARS AGO  St.Mary s Hospital has received the  go-ahead signal from Health Minister  Loffmark on its $688,000 hospital  expansion.  Regional Director J.H.Tyner placed  a proposal before the board from the  Pender Harbour Ratepayers that a  medical clinic be established at  Madeira Park.  15 YEARS AGO  Pender Harbour Secondary School  hosts a volleyball tournament with  teams from Max Cameron of Powell  River, Brooks High School, Elphinstone and Pender Harbour competing.  W.H.Palmer of Cannery Road lost  eleven lambs to a marauding dog  last week. This brings to nineteen  the total of lambs that Palmer has  lost this year.   20 YEARS AGO  Heavy rains in the past two weeks  have created havoc in the Twin  Creeks area of the Port Mellon Highway. Mr. and Mrs. Alfred Farris  almost lost their lives ilong with their  two children when a bridge in the  area washed out just as they were  about to cross it. They left their  car which was eventually overturned  by water and mud.  A well-attended public meeting in  Sechelt discussed the problem of a  growing rat population in the village.  25 YEARS AGO  The addition to the Sechelt Municipal Hall is almost ready for use.  Sechelt Volunteer Fire Brigade  purchases an ex-RCAF crash fire  truck from the town of Haney.  Burglars broke into Thor Chris-  tenson's Gibsons Meat Market but  failed to get anything of value.  30 YEARS AGO  Liberal Member of Parliament  James Sinclair, in a blast at his own  party, says that the Liberal Party  must look to its record and chart its  future so that everyone can understand it. Sinclair said that the great  need of the Liberal Party is "a clear  and simple statement so that the ordinary working man can understand  just what the Liberal Party stands  for."  Local businessmen took to picks  and shovels recently to repair local  roads.      __^_  Gibsons Landing, 1906.

L.R.Peterson  Musings  John Burnside  Slings & Arrows  ��*  George Matthews  ^  Though I have been a census taker in my time, I heartily  support the lady on the Lower  Mainland who is contesting  the right of thc government to  demand endless information  about its citizens. Wc arc all in  danger of becoming stripped  bare of even the most basic  elements of privacy because of  the endless hunger of bureaucrats, police forces, and administrators of all types who  feel that the essential dignity  of thc individual and the right  of privacy are secondary considerations to the information  that they see themselves in  need of in order to do their  jobs.  Of continuing concern to  some of the more thoughtful  and responsible members of  parliament is thc increasing  mis-use of Social Security  Numbers. When these were  instituted wc were assured by  thc federal government Ihat  they would bc used only to  facilitate the administration  of Ihe social services departments, Since that time they  have been made available lo  every branch of government  from the tax branch lo the  R.C.M.P,  Now, there will be those  who say that if one has nothing to hide he has nothing lo  worry about, but a more  thoughtful stance would find  concern in thc centralization  of greal amounts of personal  information about a citizenry  in the hands of officialdom.  In Canada we are wont to put  too much trust in governmental agencies, it seems to me.  Oh, we complain copiously  about the size of the bureaucracy and about their inefficiency but by and large wc  remain convinced that Canadian bureaucracies are incapable of conscious mis-use of  the information wc supply  them but in the long run this  may bc a dangerous naivete.  It bears repeating that  liberty and human dignity  are neither achieved nor maintained by apathy and inertia  and the drift towards greater  and greater centralization  of information in the hands of  government officials about  every man, woman, and child  in this country is being accomplished by an overly-zealous  officialdom on thc one hand  and an electorate which seems  to believe that everything will  always be alright without any  effort on its part.  My own experience as a  census taker was during the  1966 census and I was engaged in the exercise I now  question for the good and simple reason that 1 needed the  money. As census-takers go  I was remarkably fortunate.  Not for me thc tedious house-  by house solicitation of urban  census taking for I was resident in Dawson City at thc  time and was given as my  census taking territory not  thc town, which was done  by a decent soul called Hcdi  Mueller, but the outlying  creeks and sparsely populated  valleys of thc western Yukon.  It was fortunate for two  reasons. First, there was a  high prccentage of thc most  delightfully eccentric old  trappers and prospectors on  whom it was my duty to call  and secondly most of them  were by no means apathetic  about their liberties and did  not hesitate to tell mc quite  roundly what they thought of  censuses or censi and census  takers so that I myself, who  had been quite happily asking  thc government's questions  was forced for the first time  to re-cvaluatc thc equanimity  with which I had been pursuing my task.  Again I was fortunate in  that having lived in thc area  for three years by that time,  I had already visited most of  the old-timers in my explorations of Klondike places and  people. Some of them I knew  and in knowing them I had  somewhat polished my approach to what must be some  of thc most individualistic  men in thc world, with a  strong sense of their individual privacy and a bias against  governmental meddling.  Generally speaking, to  stride up to a cabin door in  thc Klondike and demand  personal information from the  occupant is to invite being  told to gct lost or worse in  any one of a dozen accents.  The census taker in such cases  must make haste slowly.  A diffident entry followed by  conversation of a general  nature is a must. In some  cases a tin mug full of over-  proof rum would be placed  before me and there was no  hope of paying attention to  thc census until its contents  had been consumed and conversational dues paid. Then,  if one's timing was right and  the host sufficiently mellowed  thc deed could bc done.  Naturally one didn't make  too many calls in one day on  this task. Thc distances to be  covered and thc dangers of  inebriation kept thc daily  number very low.  Last week the lady from the  Lower Mainland was conducting her own defence against  charges of non-co-operation  with census takers. She had  something very valuable, it  seems to me, in common with  thc crusty old sourdoughs  from whom I sought information on behalf of the Canadian  government. It was a very  healthy skepticism about the  powers that governments  take unto themselves if only  through the momentum of  their own ponderous record  keeping. Why do they have to  know everything they say  they have to know? Why is it  not necessary for them to  explain to us the reasons for  their demands? Why is thc  average Canadian liable to  punitive action if he or she  does not immediately acquiesce to governmental demands?  render unto Caesar that which  is Caesar's. The trouble with  Caesars and governments  generally ��� even democratic  governments ��� is that they  constantly redefine and enlarge their realm and we  would be foolish not to  realize this.  And so wc applaud thc lady  who thought that census takers had no right to ask how  many visitors came to her  house or what door she used  to gain access to her home,  in questioning thc necessity  and thc suitability of some of  the questions she is acting  on behalf of all of us.  Somebody the other day, 1  think it was Bob Bjornson,  made a comment about how  we'd all be better off without  paper. Working every day in  the worst paper shuffling bureaucracies the idea was a revelation. The thought is so  bizarre that I haven't been  able to get it off my mind.  I first have to dispose of the  underlying realities; that I  make money from paper and  that a very significant part of  thc economic justification for  this community exists in the  production of that paper,  namely pulp.  Putting all that aside, but  never forgetting it, the idea of  not having paper is fascinating. My initial reaction is how  calm, peaceful and glorious  thc world would bc without  paper. First, there would bc  no newspapers to feed the  fears, vicarious desires, and  paranoias of the public;  no more sordid details of mass  suicides; no more descriptions of the remains of the  victims of ear or airplane accidents; no more disclosures of  the human frailties of politicians.  Warming lo the possibilities, one can't avoid the fact  that no more bad novels could  be written, There is so much  paper, so cheap, around these  days that anybody can write  anything and some damn  fool feels obliged to print it.  Did you ever wonder what  happened to thc really great  piece of literature? Thc unforgettable story with the universal theme? There is so  much paper in the world these  days, and so many books, that  novels are written for isolated  and specific sub-cults. An  author can write almost anything he wants these days  and be pretty sure that at  the very least it will end up  with a lurid cover on some bus  depot book shelf.  It also seems likely that thc  more books there are around,  thc less people read them.  Imagine how valuable books  would become all of a sudden  if there was no more paper.  What books there were would  be hoarded, read with great  care and passed on from  generation to generation.  In business and government  the disappearance of paper  would  have  great  benefits.  People would actually have to  start talking to one another  again. Thc lies, obfuscations  and    circumlocutions    made  possible by the written word  would disappear. Most messages in any bureaucracy are  insignificant, redundant  and  unnecessary. In most public  and private agencies the workers suffer from communication pollution; that is, so many  messages on so many bits and  pieces of paper that nobody  bothers   to  read  them   any  more.   Even   the   messages  marked    "urgent",    "confidential", "important",  "top secret", "for eyes only",  etc. can be confidently consigned to the waste bin because if thc message is really  that    important     somebody  would have told you about it.  Talk about trimming waste in  government;  with  no  paper  there would bc no messages,  except  for those you would  have   heard   about   anyway,  no more need for messengers,  no more typists, no wasted  time writing memos, no more  time reading memos; people  would actually have to spend  their time getting things done.  On thc other hand, if there  was no paper how would information    bc    communicated,  stored    and    remembered?  Obviously the computer would  become the chief instrument  in storing and remembering  information and while this will  happen eventually anyway I  don't think most of us arc  quite ready for it yet.  The  vast majority of people arc  computer     illiterates;     wc  don't understand how to use  the celluloid  tape or those  little    electronic    disks,    if  paper were to disappear right  now that tiny elite with computer literacy would have us  in the palms of their hands.  Recall  from  history  how  a  handful of priests and monks  were able to rule society during   the   middle   ages   only  because they had mastered  the secrets of reading and  writing.  With no paper the  computer programmers would  have us in exactly the same  situation; that is if they don't  already.  Please turn to page three Coast News.

As various  writings began to appear both  by and aboul the members of  ibis decidedly eccentric group  of friends and (in several  cases) lovers, the picture  became less-confused. Kerouac, Ginsberg and Burroughs, the real progenitors of  the literary and social upheavals to come, had met in New  York in the mid-Forties, Burroughs, more than a decade  older than the other two,  cynical, literate, morphine-  addicted, wordly-wise, became a soil of decadent guru  lo thc younger writers. Both  bc and Ginsberg would  achieve literary renown of  their own but it was Kerouac  who would provide the catalytic spark and lead thc way.  His first novel, The Town  and The City, was published  under the name John Kerouac, when the author was  twenty-seven. It is an interesting book, conventionally-  structured but full of finely-  written passages and many  hints of what was to come.  Town and City is far more  highly-fictionalized than any  of the subsequent works but  springs from thc same autobiographical sources. The Lowell of his childhood becomes  Galloway and the Kerouac  lamily. the Martins, but most  of thc basic details arc factual.  Kerouac's chief divergence  from reality is in thc way hc  handles his own persona and  ihat of his sister. Nin. In real  life, thc Kcrouacs had only  three children, one of whom,  ihe sickly Gerard, died tragically when hc was only  four. (Thc loss was to haunt  Kerouac for the rest of his  life.) In the novel, he increases  the number of children to  eight. The tive Martin boys  are all aspects of himself al  Pages  from a Life-Log  Peter Trower  various ages: the three girls,  aspects of his sister. The story  follows pretty much ihe course  tin fragmented form) of Kerouac's actual early years:  the fantasizing, the football,  the move to New York, the  lather's death, the first contacts with the hipster underworld. By Ihe end of the book  Peter Martin, Ihe character  most like Kerouac. is about to  set out on Ihe road for the  firsl time.  The Town and file City was  no runaway best-seller hut  it received good reviews.  By the time it saw print,  Kerouac was deep into thc  early drafts of thc book that  was to make him famous.  The pivotal character, Dean  Moriarty, is modelled on  Kerouac's peripatetic road-  buddy, Neal Cassady, another  important figure in thc Beat  pantheon. Cassady was a  largely self-educated Denver  streel-kid; son of a barber  turned wino; pool-hall philosopher; inveterate car-thief;  tireless ladies-man. (Cassady  also aspired to be a writer but  couldn't slow down long  enough to apply himself. His  only published work, The First.  Third, consists of three chapters from an unfinished novel  and several fragments.)  The two brotherless men became close friends. At one  point, they shared Cassady's  wife, Carolyn, in a menage a  trois arrangement on the West  Coast. It was of their wild  crosscountry wanderings that  Kerouac would make legend.  Getting On The Road down  on paper was not to bc an easy  task. Kerouac attempted it  first in thc style of The Town  and The City but that correct  and measured prose seemed  somehow at odds with the  subject-matter. John Clellon  Holmes, who saw most of  the initial drafts, avers that  some of them were brilliant.  But they were not what Kerouac was seeking and he discarded them one after thc  other. Finally, he achieved the  break-through he was looking  for. Suspending a roll of teletype paper so that il would  feed through his typewriter.  Kerouac embarked on what  has to be one of thc most-  remarkable creative marathons of all lime. Stoked on  benzedrine, hc wrote practically non-stop for three  weeks. The herculean effort  brought him to thc verge of  collapse but at the end of it,  hc had written 120,000  words ��� the entire first draft  of On The Road.  Kerouac's jubilance over his  remarkable feat was soon to  bc dampened. His publishers,  Harcourt, Brace & Co., rejected the manuscript out of  hand. They had been expecting an orderly sequel to  Kerouac's initial novel. Instead, he was trying to foist  a chaotic explosion of words  on them, that appeared to  have no commercial possibilities whatsoever. The eccentric work received an  equally cold reception from  several other publishers.  (They are undoubtedly still  kicking themselves in tbe way  of short-sighted and overly-  cautious editors since time  immemorial.) For Kerouac.  it represented a major setback but he had opened the  creative floodgates now. Seven years were to elapse  before On The Road (edited  down by a third and with a  good deal of conventional  punctuation inserted) was to  finally appear. During this  period. Kerouac knocked  about the country, spending  extended periods in California, the Pacific Northwest and Mexico; cranking out  a continuous flow of prose and  poetry in scrofulous skidroad  hotel-rooms. Between travel-  junkets, he hung out on the  New York underground scene  or holed up al his widowed  mother's house, where hc  maintained a spartan writing  room. In his final years of  obscurity, Kerouac became a  serious student of Mahayana  Buddhism, a belief that conflicted with his essential  Catholicism and which be  would ultimately discard.  Thc advent of On The Road  was to ultimately change lhc  course of many lives but none  more than Kerouac's own.  Almost overnight, he was  transformed from an itenerant  literary figure of minlscule  reputation to the status of a  full-fledged cult hero. For  Kerouac, essentially a shy,  introverted man, the transition was a jarring and awful  thing. He had always relied on  liquor to ease his awkwardness with most other people.  Hc now began lo rely on it lo  a much greater degree. Il  would lead to embarrassing  interviews and quasi-incoherent explanations of what  the expression "Beat" was  actually supposed to signify. (It appeared to hover  somewhere between beat-  down and beatific.) These  occasions were unfortunate  since they tended to make  Kerouac appear foolish and  irresponsible. They also drew  attention to his persona rather  than his writing, a situation  that would distress Kerouac  more and more as time went  by. Someone dubbed him  King of the Beats, a half-  facetious title that he detested. Fame was at him with a  vengeance.  I saw Kerouac on television  for the first and only time in  1960. It was on the old Steve  Allen Show. Poor Jack, all  duded up in a tweed sport's-  jacket and freshly-pressed  pants, seemed quite sober  but visibly nervous. He and  Allen exchanged a little random talk but only when he  began to read did he seem to  relax. He performed excellently.

Corvette Summer, which  will be shown Wednesday  through Thursday, December  6���9, could be more properly  called a love triangle involving  a hoy and a girl and a ear.  A Stingray is one of the main  characters in this fast-moving  action comedy in which the  other leads are Mark Hamill  of Star Wars and Annie Potts,  making her film debut her.  Hamill plays a naive high  school senior obsessed with  retrieving thc lost Stingray  and getting into trouble as a  result. Potts portrays an inexperienced but willing prostitute who is delighted to learn  that she will be Hamill's first  experience. Accent is on comedy and action as they meet  with frustrations in their  particualr goals.  Thc large supporting east  offers a wealth of funny  characters and the film is  fun to watch and a guaranteed  crowd-pleaser. Shown at the  regular 8:00 p.m. time on  Wednesday and Thursday,  the film will have two showings on each of Friday and  Saturday nights at 7:00 and  9:00 p.m.  The second film of thc week  is entitled Jokes My Folks  Never Told Mc and for those  who like their film fun with a  touch of naightiness it may  just bc the sort of thing that  censors warn us about. Jokes  My Folks Never Told Mc will  play at the Twilight Theatre  Sunday through Wednesday,  December 10���13.

TJ'S INTRODUCES:  the piano behind him, Kerouac read from the concluding pages of On The Road  which contain some very moving lines. All would have been  well had they left it at that  but they insisted on dragging  him out for the big show-biz.  finale when all the performers  clasped hands and rushed to  the front of the stage to bow  and accept applause. Kerouac  looked palpably reluctant and  excruciatingly embarrassed.  Either just prior to or just  after this event, Kerouac and  Allen cut an album together,  lt was entitled Poetry For The  Beat Generation and I still  possess a badly-scratched  copy. Out of print for years, it  features Kerouac reading various poems of varying quality.  One of thc finest things on the  disc is a rendering of October  In The Railroad Earth. An  excellent prose-poem (of  which this is only a brief  excerpt), it derives from Kerouac's stint as a brakeman  working out of San Francisco.  It bristles with movement and  vivid images. There arc several other good tracks on thc  album along with some trivial  things but Kerouac is in fine  voice throughout and Allen's  intelligent accompaniment on  piano, tomes in at the right  spots. To the best of my  knowledge, Kerouac recorded  only two other albums, one  of haikus with a jazz group,  the other of unaccompanied  readings. It is unfortunate  that he failed to do more in  this area, for Kerouac's work  is more closely connected with  music than the major body of  flat-footed modern poetry.  These were thc days of  strange changes. Much to  Kerouac's dismay. On The  Road was becoming a sort of  handbook; a bible for thc dis-  afilliated. Thc Dharma Bums  was becoming a similar  manual /or the more spiritually-inclined. The Beat  Generation that hc had only  postulated was suddenly  giving birth to itself. The upheaval I had imagined might  occur was beginning.  Student  Performance  The students of Madeira  Park Elementary School will  present a musical version of  Joseph's Coal at the school  on Wednesday, December 13.  There will be two performances of thc play: one at 1:30  p.m. and another at 7:30 p.m.  Friends and visitors from  all areas of the Sunshine  Coast are invited to attend.

It was all much ado about  nothing; thc course was  "tailored" (gutted, might bc  a better word) to allow for a  maximum of mathematical  and scientific ineptitude ���  thc expanding universe, for  example, was explained by  analogy to a raisin muffin  rising in the cosmic oven (I  slill haven't sorted Ihat one  out, but it did cause an upswing in fortunes of thc campus cafeteria). Ironically, the  course turned out to bc one of  the most valuable learning  experiences 1 was to undergo  al the hands of the educational  system. I'd always been in-  tercsled in  "uutcrspace" in  a disorganized way but what  I "knew" was as much  science-fiction as fact; for the  first time I was confronted  with thc body of serious  scientific knowledge about  the universe and discovered  once again that truth is at  least as strange and fascinating as fiction.  Recently, thanks to Prentice  Hall of Canada, I was able to  relive and extend that experience by reading The Cambridge Encyclopaedia of Astronomy. Edited by Dr. Simon  Milton of the University of  Cambridge, Institute of  Astronomy, Thc Cambridge  Encyclopaedia of Astronomy,  published only last year, is  the finest book on the cosmos  I've ever seen. Though it is  an encyclopaedia in the sense  Ihat il is a thorough survey ol  a subject in a single work,  the editors wisely chose to  present the information in the  form of a series of "themes"  rather than opt for thc alphabetical system we usually  associate with an Encyclopaedia. The alphabetical  system is a boon lo editors,  since it makes for easy organization of data, and presents no  obstacle to random browsing.  but its order is arbitrary,  essentially irrational, and presupposes that the reader  knows the proper name for  what he is seeking (and how to  spell it correctly). Presenting a  large amount of material in a  rational integrated way. so  that it can provide a real learning experience, even to someone inexperienced in the subject, is an enormously difficult  task, but the editors of Thc  Cambridge Encyclopaedia of  Astronomy   succeed   impres  sively.  They begin with a general  survey of the universe and  proceed from a discussion of  the various kinds of stars, and  their composition, to a sharp  focus on our own solar system. Along the way, there is a  fascinating chapter on the distribution and origin of the  chemical elements that arc the  basic building blocks of the  universe. From our own cosmic neighbourhood our eyes  arc turned outward again to  the space "between thc  stars", thc nebulae, thc birth  and death cycle of stars, and  the near and distant galaxies.  The final chapters of thc book  arc devoted to Cosmology (the  nature of thc universe as a  whole), life in thc universe,  the major trends in thc history of astronomy, and astronomy in space. All this information is accompanied by  a host of clear and helpful  graphs, charts and diagrams  and dramatic photographs  from thc finest observatories  in thc world, in an excellently  bound hardback volume of 49b  pages. Thc result is a fine  reference book, a comprehensive, up-to-date work you can  return to again and again in  search of specific information  or, just out of curiosity, for an  enlightening browse.  As wc race toward the  21st century it becomes increasingly apparent that our  future survival depends to no  small extent on our understanding of thc workings of  the universe. Thc Cambridge  Encyclopaedia of Astronomy  has to bc thc basic manual  on the subject. It's not cheap  by any means ($35.00) but you  gct what you pay for (and isn't  that nice for a change'.').  It's the perfect gift for anyone interested in the stars.  though if you buy it for one of  your children, be prepared for  an avalanche of subtle hints  on the subject of a telescope. .  Susan Elek on piano and Eric Doolittle on cello perform at the benefit concert tieid  at Elphinstone School last week on behalf of the Sechelt Arts Centre.  Piano workshop here  Bv Susan Elek  On Saturday. December 9,  from 9:30 a.m. lo 2:30 p.m. al  Elphinstone School. Mr. Kum  Sing Lee is giving his first  "piano workshop" on the Sunshine Coast. The workshop  will be modelled on a master  class situation: each student  will play a piece that hc or  sh<5 has mastered, to thc best  of their ability, and then  receive comments from Mr.  Lee. Thc half-hour alolted  to each student is a brief period of time, but sometimes all  it takes is a few words from a  teacher with a different  approach to give students new  insight into the pieces they arc  playing, or into the music  itself.  Mr. Lcc is presently head of  Ihe piano department of the  Community Music .School of  Vancouver which has about  1,400 students attending,,  aged three years and up.  Mr. Lee is, iu addition to being an excellenl teacher  as those of you who have  heard his students know,  a line pianist of international  repute and  a   man  of great  sincerity and warmth.  The Intermediate Session-  grades V and VI (Royal  Conservatory of Musie) is  from 9:30 to 11:30. The Senior  Session ��� grades VI, VIII.  and IX ��� is from 12:00 to  2:30. There will be admission  to and from the room after  each participant is finished.  Because of the full financial  support by the Sunshine Coast  Arts Council the workshop is  free of charge. If there are  any further questions please  contact Susan Elek, 885-  3936.  Lockstead report  POWELL   RIVER   -   The  Social Credit governmeni is  preparing ihe public mentally  for yet another ferry rale  increase. Don Lockstead.

President of  the MacKctizic Constituency  of the British Columbia  Soeial Credit Party announced  today that Premier W.H.  Bennett would attend and bc  the keynote speaker at thc  Nomination Convention of the  Riding to be held on Sunday,  January 21, 1979 at 1:30 p.m.  in thc Beach Garden Hotel  in Powell River.  A  candidate  for  the   upcoming    Provincial    Election  will   bc   nominated   at   this  Convention.  The Convention   ^^^ ���  will be chaired by Dan Han-  use. Se., Director for Region  One of the Parly.  More than 400 delegates  from the Constituency, which  ranges from Port Mellon in  the South lo B Ocean Falls  and Bella'Coola in the North,  are expected to bc iu atten  dance at the meeting.  Mr. Sim staled lhal a new  executive had been elected  at the recent annual meeting  and lhal a revilalization of the  Soeial Credit Parly in ihis  Constituency is well under  way. Al present the member  for Ihis area is N.D.P.  lo approximately $4h.h million." The same message  appears on signs in the ferries hul Ihcy are printed  without any punctuation.  "The purpose behind Ihis  campaign is sinister." I mi-  stead said, "livery British  Columbian knows the ferries  don't make money. They ne-  vcr were intended lo make a  profit and they are supported  in public funds just like the  highways, schools and hospitals."  He said Ihe only conceivable reason for the campaign  is that the government  wauls to make ferry passengers feel guilty about the public expense of the ferry sys-  kin.  "Il is clear ihat Sam HawII  lljie Smial Credit minister  responsible for ferries) wants  the users nl the ferries to  feel they are gelling something they don't deserve,"  Lockstead said. "Once lhal  impression is planted, he will  he free in raise ferry fares  again as the Socreds did in  ll)7h uiili disastrous results  in coastal and Vancouver  Island local economics."

Greg  has previous associations  with the Sunshine Coast  from visits to Camp Byng  when he was a Cub Leader.  Teacher's Aide Jamie Ui.xnn  is a man of many pans, and  the only person on staff who  has previous connections  with Deserted Bay itself.  He grew up there with his  firsl cousin Teddy Dixon, the  Sechell Indian Hand's Home  School Co-ordinator. As  young men. both Jamie and  Teddy frequently journeyed  back and forth between Tsoh-  nye and lluiiaecliin (Head)  another traditional Sechelt  Indian village site al the head  of Jems Inlet. When from  time to time the older men  were away logging, Teddy and  Jamie were effectively elders  of the new generation, and as  such they attended to the  hunting and fishing for thc  families  living in  bolh  loca-  tions. Jamie is a well-known  carver, and hc instructs  the students in carving  and Indian Arts. He operates  the boal which makes the  twice weekly journey of  approximately three-and-  a-half hours between Egmont  and Deserted Bay, and he  also instructs the students in  navigation. Jamie's background, like Ron (-'cam's,  includes periods spent in  the logging and fishing Industries, and for several years  he was the very popular driver  nl the red bus which for main  years conveyed Native students from the old Residential  School to various schools on  the Coast. In addition to his  instructional and navigational  responsibilities, Jamie is  Supervisor of ihe Boys' dormitory and he also acts as  Maintenance Man and  Janitor when thc regular man,  Paul Dupre. is away, usually  on alternate weekends.  Paul Dupre replaced the  original Maintenance Man  and has now been pari of the  team lor three weeks. He was  burn in Vancouver, but as  the surname reveals, he is of  trench-Canadian origin.  Hc is bilingual, and his knowledge of French is sure to  be utilized sooner or later.  While Ihe Coast News'  reporter was at Tsoh-nye,  Paul was overseeing the replacement of a starter motor  in a Secheft Indian Band  Council pick-up which is at  the siie. He was instructing  two students in this particular  aspect uf auto mechanics. In  addition in his mechanical  aptitude, Paul is very knowledgeable with regard tu  boats, and Ihis aspect of his  background is likely also in  be utilized, Paul, and his  w ife Sascha, are in the process  n! building a substantial  sailboat.  I he tilth member of lhc  stall is the Conk. Joan Marshall.

Joan comes originally from Montreal. She took a  Bachelor of Fine Arls degree  al Mount Allison University  in Sackville New Brunswick,  and she taught English and  Art at St.Andrews-by-thc-  Sea High School. New Brunswick, for nne year thereafter. She subsequently  obtained a leaching assistant-  ship at Bowling Green University.

Joan alls been lhc recipient  of a Canada Council grant for  her weaving as a result of  which she had a showing of  her work in Calgary. She  weaves on a Salish loom, but  she thinks of herself more as a  resource person than as an  instructor. She has presented  a slide show on weaving to  the students, and she has assisted students with spinning wool on her own wheel  and weaving on a small  loom. A student is making  weaving one of her projects,  and Joan is accessible whenever help is needed.

The new boal called 'Medusa  2' is a 24' aluminum herring  skiff with twin .15 horse power  motors which make il the easiest boat we have.  We have also got a new  plankton net to fish with. Il  is shaped like an airport wind  sock with the net made of a  very line mesh. The students  will probably bc looking at  plankton under microscopes.  Ihe water problem of last  week has been resolved. Mother Nature warmed up lhc  ground a little and our pipes  aren't frozen.  Also lasl week, lhc sill-  dents were given repori cards.

There's no place like home  By Maryanne West  If you are travelling to Victoria via the Tsawwassen���  Schwartz Bay Ferry between  December 15 and the New  Year be sure to look out for the  Pearson Tree of Light which  stands on a rocky bluff overlooking Active Pass on the  north end of Pender Island.  Each Christmas light which  decorates the seventy-foot  fir tree, and there will be  several hundred, represents  a donation to CARE of Canada  to provide food for hungry  children in many parts of the  world.  I've written the story of the  Pearson Tree before ��� but  I think it bears repetition ���  a reminder of thc far-reaching  effects of thc efforts of two  concerned people.  Nineteen years ago George  and Edith Pearson and a sniall  group of their friends decided  they would rather celebrate  Christmas by helping to feed  the hungry than by buying  gifts for each other ��� things  they really didn't need. Between them they collected  S102.50 which they sent to  CARE of Canada and instead  of presents under their tree  George Pearson decorated a  small tree overlooking the  water, a coloured light for  each of that small group.  Last year the Pearson Tree  raised $9,455 and every cent  of every donation was forwarded to CARE.  For many years George and  Edith Pearson did all the secretarial work, acknowledgements and temporary receipts  themselves, but as each year's  contributions  increased   and  they were not getting any  younger, a couple of years ago  the North Pender Lions Club  gave their support so that all  the money could continue to  be sent each year to CARE.  Edith Pearson will bc eighty-  four on December 15. thc day  the lights will be turned on,  and George will be ninety-two  on January 8 ��� but both still  like to do as much as they can  and look forward each year to  thc renewal of friendships  which have grown up over the  years with people whom they  have never met, living across  Canada to the Maritimes. and  south to California.  The Lions Club has readied  thc lights ��� everything is  ready for your donation if you  would like to add another  light to the joyful tree. If  you would like to send a donation in memory of someone  dear to you thc tree of coloured lights wears a crown of  white memory lights. Send  you donations to the Pearson  Tree of Lights, c/o Pender  Island Lions Club, Port  Washington. B.C. VON  2T0.  Another tradition has grown  up with the tree; an annual  poem written by George Pearson about its message.  This year's poem is called  The CARE Christmas Tree ���  it grows on Pender Island,  B.C.  Again we come to Christmas  Time/ And on this Isle it  seems/ A band of workers  try so hard/ To show what  Christmas means./It means  the CARE tree must be lit/  And new lights bought by thc  score/ The tree to climb now  very high/ To shine from  shore to shore./It speaks a  language without words/  As silently  it stands,/  Yet  reaches out with love and  care/ To far off distant lands.'  It also speaks to those quite  near/ And tells them how in  share/ Our joy and quiet happiness/ Bv vour friendly gill  to CARE>rhe white lights  too a message bring/ And  echo love's refrain.' That in  that new and better life  We all shall meet again./  lt tells the world that people  CARE/ The hungry must be  fed./ And hearts are warmed  o'er all thc earth/ By gifts  of daily bread.. For nineteen  years we've tried to help  And sec what CARE could  do,/ And so we say with  thankfulness, God Bless  each one of you.

Wc looked forward to  a fall break and some warm  sun and thc excitement of  frenetic 'Frisco.  But life can dish out some  disappointments!  We can console ourselves  by repeating the old adages:  "The darkest cloud may have  a silver lining!", or "It's a  long road that has no turning!" But the road from hereto 'Frisco has many turns, and  though we saw many dark  clouds, all of them dumping  their loads on us and heading  back to where ever they come  from for refills, we saw no  silver lining until a few  days later when we caught a  good old CP Air jet and headed North.  On our trip south, we ran  the gamut of thc weather department; freezing rain and  gusty winds which blew vehicles from icy freeways into  mudpie medians; cloudbursts  which produced oceans of  spray and puddles an inch  deep and miles long. In three  days of driving, the sun made  two brief appearances only to  produce a few hopeful cheers  of "California, here we  come!" from a glum clutch of  spirit-dampened travellers.  II was only the enthusiasm of  the parched Callfornlans  who had been without rain  since February,  thai  perked  our spirits a bit and made us  determined to 'enjoy'!  Wc had looked forward to  gorging ourselves on seafood  at Fisherman's Wharf; exotic  and mysterious goodies at  S.F.'s Chinatown; shopping  on Market Street; riding on  the cable cars. But how do  you do all of these things in  the rain? Wet, that's how!  We had left all of our rain  gear and bumbcrshoots at  home. After all, this is California, where it hasn't rained  since February!  San Francisco is a walking  town. The premium parking,  narrow streets and steep hills  make it so. And with thc cable  cars to take you to most  places of interest there is no  need of a car. But during the  rainy season, it is a different  story. You must be prepared,  and wc were not.  And prices! Don't go to  California looking for bargains  in wardrobes or styles, Christ  mas gifts, or just plain fun.  Thc only bargain is booze and  it serves well to dull the pain  of paying the price for other  things. 'Frisco is a convention  town and if you are on a generous expense account it can  bc a fun place to go. But for  thc tourist and sightseer,  it can be a tourist trap. The  airlines promote 'Frisco  flights from Vancouver. From  'Frisco, they promote Whistler flights. If there is lots of  the white stuff at one end and  lots of the folding green at the  other, you can both have a  good time. If not, stay away!  For us there is no bargain.  You pay 18% for U.S. funds.  Seven percent on most goods  for tax, eight percent on rooms  or motels at rates from a  base of $25.00 to $70.00 and  up in the better hotels. We  have to go south to appreciate  what we have at home.  In two days, we had taken  the wrinkles out of our tum  mies at Fisherman's Wharf;  passed up on Chinatown after  reports of better food and  prices in Vancouver; driven  down the 'crookedest street  in the world'; had seen the  Maritime Museum, Alcatraz  through a spy-glass; and  strolled among the weirdo's  of Market Street. The same  evening I heard of my near  miss as an alderman-elect,  but as I said, "Life can dish  out, etc.!" However, we  had seen what we came to  see, much of which we have  in abundance at home and  some of it better, including the  rain. The rest we can watch  from our boob-tube in the  comfort of our own home, in  front of a crackling fireplace,  and think back to our lovely  summer past and look forward  to the next.  Our long road straightened  out when we boarded a Vancouver-bound CP Air jet, and  our silver lining appeared  when the Captain announced  a pleasant, clear, cool landing  at Vancouver International.  And if some day we can buy  the Golden Gate Bridge, put  on a toll to the Peninsula,  pass a super-recreational  package, we will be the envy  ofalloftheU.S.ofA.!  ��� Sunshine Coast        ���  ��� Fitness & Recreation ���  '.

There's a supposedly sure-  fife   way   nl    indoctrinating  them  into accepting  a  new  territory. Take them to your  Dew home and apply butter  to their feet ��� make sure not  to get it on your scratches.  k will cither spoil thc flavour  for them or turn  them  into  good  ratters.  Once  thc  befuddled feline has licked the  rii   ��� from its paws you're  i  free ��� it will now accept  tyitp.icsv home.  \ |'ve been given numerous  testimonies that this works,  but my own success has been  limited to one failure. My  last cat, Corky, proved to  bc one of those territorial  bcastics who would rather go  hungry than change. I eventually finagled him into moving. Did all the right things,  fed him treats, loved him up  and then liberally smeared  his paws with thc prescribed  butter. 1 spent the evening  telling him that he would  enjoy the new place and Finally got him to the point where  hc pretended to relax, tensely,  underneath thc dresser. All  was perfect until the door  broke open and an excitable  human burst iu shouting,  "There's a fire or whatever,"  and that I should gct a picture.  Corky  went  over  the   sofa,  up the curtains, out the door  and off to his own world. Well,  better luck next time.  It's amazing how many of  what we consider old wives  talcs, actually work. Our  typesetter and spiders mix  like oil and water, so to save  ourselves the distress of running around hunting them  down with rolled up back  issues of the paper, we put  out feelers for a remedy.  Surprisingly we found one.  At strategic points around the  typesetter we placed chestnuts, and there the spiders  arcn 't.  There's nothing new to  report on the S.P.C.A, The  membership cards and what-  havc-you are still in the  making, so when anything  conies up. I'll let you know .  Thorwald:  Thorwald is an old Danish  word meaning big and  strong. It was with an eve  to a hopeful future that Karin  Hoemberg named the tiny  week-old squirrel that the  cats brought in a couple of  months ago.  To keep it alive at the beginning, Karin put it on a  heating pad and fed it every  three hours. It's still really  attached to her and won't go  to anyone else. This can probably bc attributed to its  strange entry into thc household. I haven't developed the  picture of Thorwald yet, at  the present time the camera's  in town, taking pictures of  the Wanderers game; if it gets  back in time, I'll include it.  Odds 'n Ends.  At least four killer whales  were seen just out from Joan  Marshall's place on Redrooffs Road on Saturday. A  call came into the office on  Sunday that there were cither  killer whales or sea lions off  Gospel Rock, so 1 headed  down for a look at them, lt  was four sea lions; they had  been around for about an  hour before I got there and  they appeared to be quite  happy just basking about. One  of them looked fairly light;  it reminded me that there has  been a light-coloured one,  spotted up at Roberts Creek,  hopefully it's a descendant of  that  albino  that  was   there  Bell Ringers here  Karin Hoemberg of Middle Point is pictured here  with her new pet, the squirrel called Thorwald.  about twelve years ago.

Thc group, consisting of  eleven girls ranging in age  from thirteen to nineteen,  rings thirty-seven handbells.  An excellent sense of rhythm  is essential for such a group  because all eleven become the  one instrument wc hear.  The bells were donated to  thc Highland United Church  in 1970 in memory of a member of musical familv who had  vcr lasl week. The main topic  was wolf control.

German journalists visit Sechelt  After ten days in Canada,  visiting the offices of politicians and statisticians, il  was a welcome change for  visiting journalists from Germany to tour thc Sechelt  Elementary School last Thursday and visit with the youngsters.  The four newsmen were  on a fact-finding mission in  this country. Between them,  their fields of expertise ran  the  gamut  from  economics  fo politics, theatre, communi  cations and North American  Indian literature.  Karl-Hugo Dierichs is the  editor-in-chief of thc Ducs-  sclorder Nachrichten Wup-  pcrtaler Generalanzeiger  Westdcutschc Zeitung;  Molger Moellenbcrg, the  Cultural editor of the Rhcin-  ischc Post in Mcrkur; while  Helmut Prinze is the founder  and editor of the broadcasting scries, Mittagsmagazin  in Cologne, and Ewald Stein  the  economics   editor  of  Handelsblatt in Ducsscldorf.  Although they had not yet  had time to correlate the information they had collected  and were (lying back to  Germany that afternoon, it  was felt by Moellenbcrg  Ihat there were definitely  major social differences between the two countries.  This, hc mainly put down to  the population density of  Germany, as compared to  Canada.  Their visit to thc school  was designed to give them a  first-hand impression of  desegregation in our education system. Sechelt was  picked to be their example.  The tour was conducted  by Clarence Joe, representing the Sechelt Indian Band.  It did not go unnoticed by thc  visitors that in every class  they entered at least one small  voice piped up "hello Grandpa".  Wildlife schedules info meetings  Bv John Hind Smith  In order to try and stimulate  some interest in thc activities  of the Gibsons Wildlife Club  two meetings per month are  now being scheduled. The  first Wednesday evening of  lhc month is devoted to a  speaker and/or film on some  subject of interest to members  and thc public al large. Everyone is welcome and we are  sure you will find something  both informative, stimulating  and enjoyable at the same  time.  In October wc presented a  film and talk on water pollution as it relates to salmon,  with particular reference to  work done in thc f'ort Mellon  and Howe Sound areas. November saw Keith Simpson  of thc Canadian Wildlife  Service talking about his  work with thc great blue heron  and he illustrated his talk with  slides. Hc also brought a film  about caribou and the discussion afterwards revolved  around predation and the proposed control of thc wolf  population.  Our next meeting on December h will be hosting Mr.  Phil Gilbert, Forest Manager  with thc Council of Forest  Industries. His topic will hc  forest management and sustained yield. He will discuss  forest management as it applies to recreation and wildlife, and outline the new forest  regulations.  In view of the fact that thc  Sunshine Coast is dependent  to quite a large extent on the  forest industry, we are hoping  that we will be able to attract  quite a number of people to  this meeting. We suspect that  Mr. Gilbert will bc bringing  along a film or slides to  illustrate his talk.  The meetings are all held at  the Gibsons Wildlife Club  house on Highway 101 right  opposite the cemetery. Thc  time is 7:30 and out of deference to our speakers we like  to start the meetings on time.  There is no charge for admission.  The second meeting of the  month is thc one where business of thc Club is discussed  and takes place on the third  OES Bazaar  Wednesday of the month,  again at 7:30. If members  have any problems or suggestions they would like to  discuss, this is thc time to  do it. Remember that if you  don't participate in thc making of decisions, you have no  grounds for complaining afterwards so come out and air  your views and let us know  what you arc thinking.  In January we hope to show  the film Tanker Bomb, a  film about oil tankers on thc  West Coast and the potential  hazards involved. Thc film has  won many international  awards. We hope to have thc  Provincial Emergency Programme Co-ordinator for the  Sunshine Coast at the meeting.  But don't forget. Wednesday, December 6 at 7:30  p.m., at the Wildlife Club. We  arc sure you will have an interesting evening.  "Gibsons and its neighbouring areas are very lucky  lo have thc lire protection  that thev have," said Colin  Evans, Fire Chief of West  Vancouver. Hc was addressing the annual banquet for  the volunteers of the West  Howe Sound Fire Protection  District held a couple of weeks  ago in Gibsons. With the volunteers offering their services because they like the  work and feel this is their way  to help out in thc community,  a low-cost, efficient protection is provided for Gibsons  and the adjacent district.  In his address Evans  dwelt on the recommendations  of the Keemleysidc report on  fire prevention in the province. "Only a very few of  these have been implemented," said hc, "and now there  is urgent need of a province-  wide training programme to  standardize methods and  equipment. It is now up to  the Attorney-General's  ministry to initiate legislation to put this into effect."  Hc also pointed out that there  is more dollar loss from fire  than there is from theft yet  thc manpower and expense  put out for theft prevention  far exceeds the meager  amount spent for fire.  "The increase in thc fire  budget for 1979 is S3.200,"  Alderman Hume reported to  Council at their November 21  meeting, when he presented  the provisional budget of  West Howe Sound Fire Protection District to Council.  "That's not an undue increase  considering inflation."  1 Gibsons taxpayers pay about  half the cost of this budget  which covers $1,350 for administration, 52,800 each for  the  alarm   and  communica  tions operation, and the  maintenance of lire halls,  Maintenance of lire trucks  calls for $7,407 which along  with several other operating  expenses adds up lo $26,197.  Following  thc   request   ol  the fire Chief for Ihe second  year, Hume moved lhal Gibsons request the Regional  Distriel io participate in .i  review of road names on lhc  lower hall of ihe Sunshine  Coasl.

Last Saturday the Sechelt  Renegades lost a game to thc  Nomads, an excellent team  from town. The game ended  in a dismal score of 6���1 for  the Nomads.  Let it bc said that the Nomads are a second division  team as compared to the  Renegades who arc in the  seventh division. The Nomads didn't get where they  are   now   on   nothing.

This  would involve a two-game  series and they would return  the visit after Christmas.  More on this next week.  Should be fun!  should point out also that the  Renegades showed greal  courage and stamina against  sueh a good learn. They gave  thc Nomads a run for llieir  money and although there was  a lack of communication  between thc players, lhc  Renegades played well.  A word of apology lo lhc  Wanderers is in order. Wc  were not aware there were  so many injured Wanderers  and we can only  hope  that  ihev recover soon and give all  the soccer fans the good action and games wc were all  looking forward to seeing.  This weekend on Sunday,  the last and final results ol  the Sunshine Coast League  games were a pleasant surprise for many.

Film Society  By Allan J. Crane  Richard Rumley of Madeira Park escaped from this accident virtually uninjured on  November 30. Accident occured when he swerved to miss a deer just north of the  Riggers' Roost.  Coast News Editor John Burnside's Datsun suffered a freak accident when hit by a  jriverless runaway while waiting for gas at Gibsons Shell Station last Saturday.  See story below.  As you can see from the  results tabulated above, there  was a mixed reaction to  Medea with the balance  tipped slightly in favour of  the favourable reaction, although that sometimes with  reservations. The figures in  brackets underneath thc  Kwahtahmoss Film Society's  ratings are those of thc delegates from all oyer Canada al  thc annual general meeting of  the Canadian Federation of  Film Societies held in Toronto  In I975.  Perhaps the majority opinion was expressed by thc  person who commented:  "Excellent acting, costumes,  etc., etc., bul very Bloody  Heavy." On the other hand,  one viewer who signed himself, "Tillicum Claude."  made a new box which hc  called DISGUSTING and he  said: "Whoever chose this  film for showing should have  been placed in thc flaming  inferno so vividly portrayed at  the end of this lousy, shitty  film." Another viewer noted  that the first boy to be sacrificed had capped teeth. Thc  Film Society's Consultant on  Dentistry, however, denied  this allegation and said that  the boy had really beautiful  teeth. He noted, however, that  Laurent Terzieff, who played  thc Centaur, did have capped  teeth of indifferent quality.  The Film Society's next  presentation is really something special. Dursu Urzalu is  a true story of the friendship  between Arsenyev, a well-  known Soviet explorer, and his  I should have stayed in bed  By John Burnside  Sonic days it doesn't pay to  get up in the morning, truly.  This thought came to mind  again Saturday afternoon as 1  endeavoured to fill my gas  tank at Charlie Mandelkau's  Shell Station in the Lower Village of Gibsons.  I'd just parked my gallant  little Datsun beside the pumps  between them and the gas  station, told Charlie 1 thought  she'd take about $5.00 worth  then sprinted across thc street  into the bookstore. Business  completed. 1 re-emerged.  Just as I made it to the sidewalk I heard a loud metallic  crump just to my left. A red  station wagon was wheeling  down School Road hill with no  one at the wheel. The crump  I'd heard had been thc vehicle  colliding with thc iron bannister at the steps al thc corner  of thc building,  Thc runaway, while I  watched, bounced off thc bannister and knocked over the  stop sign on the corner which  it dragged underneath it  across the street in the direction of the wire fence on thc  far side from where I stood.  Just about half way across  the street I guess the wheels  got tangled up on the dragging stop sign, for the car  turned sharply left and headed  straight on to the gas station  lot. "My God," I thought,  "it's heading directly towards  my car! This can't bc happening."  But it was, and as unerringly as a thrown dart thc red  wagon bumped on to thc gas  station lot,  narrowly missed  the gas pumps, and slammed  into my poor defenceless  car. I couldn't believe il.  I'd just been in a collision  while across the street from  my car which was sitting off  thc road at gas pumps. What  could I do? 1 took a picture.  Apparently thc red wagon  had been parked on the lower  parking lot of the Inglis House  just a few moments before.  It had no handbrake, had not  been put in gear and thc  wheels were turned downhill.  There was no possible straight  line it could have taken to  my car but it had rolled,  bouncing off of obstacles and  changing directions twice  until it met my car.  I  should   have   stayed   in  bed!  guide Dersu Urzalu. a true  son of thc Asian tribe. Ussuri  Taiga, and a wise. kind, unselfish man. Dersu Urzalu  was a book written by Arsc-  ncyev as he recorded his  Siberian journeys. Thc prestigious Japanese director  Akira Kurosawa (Rashomon,  The Seven Samurai, etc.)  first became interested in  Dersu I'r/alu in thc 1930's  vv hen he was still working with  Ihe director Yamamoio, and  his interest centered around  Ihe fact that il speaks of man's  unity with nature, of his struggle against predatory extermination, The topicality of  thc film in the overall issue of  ihe contemporary struggle  for environmental protection  does not overshadow its political aspects, for nature is being  destroyed by capitalist and  socialist industrial monopolies  with mercenary motives.  Consequently, Kurosawa calls  upon humanity to ponder  the question of what lies  ahead by putting in the centre  of the film events the character of (hc trapper Dersu  Urzalu who lives in harmony  with nature.  I want to assure readers  that this is not a "heavy"  film. I saw it at Saskatoon lasl  May, and thc location photography in the Siberian tundra  is breath-taking. The film is  not difficult or puzzling cither  in the way that Three Women,  for example, was. It is a narrative film, but it is not overburdened with dialogue since  much of its interchange is  portrayed visually. Nor is it  by any stretch of thc imagination what might bc looked  upon as a depressing film in  contrast to Medea or most of  the Bergman films of thc late  Sixties and early Seventies  which could bc so regarded,  lt is a moving and lovely film  which gently poses questions  which arc of concern to us all.

Toward the Alexander Mackenzie Stone  Voyage of the Sea-Raker  By Bruce Woodsworth Part IV  Tues. 4 Jul. 78: Crews of  both Tajour (38-ft. ketch with  Chuck and Jo Williams as  skipper and first mate), and  Sea Raker (25-ft. mahogany-  hulled cabin cruiser with  Bruce and Sylvia Woods-  worth and dog Baku as  Skipper, first mate and cabin  boy respectively), were tired.  Wc all needed a rest badly  after the stresses and strains  of the preceding hazardous  days. This morning Chuck and  1 had caught seven Dungencss  crabs, not six but six-and-onc-  half full inches across the shell  as required by the Department  of Fisheries. So Sylvia and  Josephine (she prefers 'Jo')  combined forces by taking the  dismembered crabs which  Chuck had subdued with an  eight-inch soft iron 'peacemaker' rapped across thin  folded-under tails, before  pulling them apart at the  joints and removing the  feathery lungs and internals.  Thev dropped them into boiling water for fifteen to twenty  minutes, then pried out the  meat and placed it in quarter-  pound salmon tins, packed full  to exclude air, salted to taste,  placed in pressure cooker with  lids loosely on top and one-  and-a-half inches of hot water  in cooker; then with valve  open steamed for ten minutes  before removing with forceps  and sealing lids. They then  returned thc tins to the  cooker  where   pressure   was  increased and maintained at  ten pounds for seventy minutes, after which it was allowed to gradually drop to  zero before they opened the  valve and removed the heavy  aluminum lid; after which  they placed thc tins in cold  water to speed cooling process.  Besides yielding each boat  four quarter-pound tins, Jo  and Sylvia had lots of crab  left over for a delicious crab  supper with all the trimmings  for two evenings hence and  seventy miles away in Smith  Sound.  While the women were thus  engaged in providing extra  protein the way women have  continued to do for at least  three million years, Chuck  worked on his charts for the  afternoon's short cruise.  Hc used the Canadian Power  Squadron formula 60D equals  ST, where D is the distance  in nautical miles, S is the  speed in knots, and T is the  time required, first given in  minutes but afterwards converted to hours by dividing  by sixty. Given any two of  thc above, the unknown third  may be easily calculated.  I personally dislike mathematics hut found great satisfaction in learning just exactly  how our boat performed at  different speeds, different  loads and greatly varying  weather and current conditions.  While travelling, Sea Raker's eight-foot  dinghy  had  its port gunwale reposing in  two notches cut on the outside  ends of two strong cleats  bolted onto the cruiser's  swim grid. This dinghy  weighed ahoul seventy-five  pounds and possessed both  turnbucklcs and tie lines at  both bow and stern. Besides  these embellishments (which  reminded me of the Kentucky  hillbilly who was so pessimistic of thc possibilities of his  pants dropping off that hc  secured ihem with both galluses and a bell...), part of  thc rower's wooden seal had  been removed so that the  dinghy, when in place for  travel, fitted ncatl; over the  9.8 h.p. Honda outboard  auxiliary.

Nevertheless, thinking  back to some davs vvhen wc  had a following sea of while  raging waves ready to pull us  down like a pack of wolves  docs with a lired moose. I  don'i mind their secret amusement. Wc never lost our dinghy ��� our main lifeline ���  and that is more than some  oilier cabin cruisers can say...  But it was quite a chore lo  get it into the water, and  moreso to get it back across  the transom into place, so I  borrowed Chuck's Davidson  dinghy, which _ he always  towed. I explored numerous  ragged bays and sniall peninsulas, meanwhile fishing for  cod. Ihis was also the fifth  day since Baku had had a  movement, so I frequently  landed him and lei him climb  up and down ihe rugged  shoreline while following me  as well as he could ��� hoping  that Nature would soon take  its course with his internals!

Gibsons Chamber "I  (ommcrce gave us a cash  donation which allowed us lo  purchase craft materials and  building supplies. Mr. Wraye  Carsen gave Ills lime and  talents to build us a portable  supply cupboard from these  materials,  Gibsons Hospital Auxiliary  has Icni us tour card tables;  Gibsons Winter Club a dozen  slacking arm chairs; ihe Uni-  led Church Thrift Shop has  given us live T.V. trays, jigsaw puzzles, books, etc. and  several have given ils cards  and crib boards.  Cash donations have been  given by the Gibsons United  Church Women and a concerned    couple.  The Centre provides two  davs of programme a week.  At present there are sixteen taking advantage of this  projeel and as the group  grows there will be more programme days added. A day  consists of coffee and conversation; learning or sharing  a craft; a hoi noon meal;  cards, games, sometimes an  outing or a party and even  limes just sitting quietly and  observing others, It is for the  latter purpose we would appreciate receiving a small.  easy-to-move sofa and two  comfortable chairs as we have  no furniture for a quiet corner to read, think, or snooze,  cultural evening for us.

Co-operatives are intended principally for families of modest and  moderate income, pensioners and handicapped. There is no discimina-  tion due to sex, creed, religion or marital status,  6. Who runs the project?  A board of directors elected democratically from amongst the members, often assisted by an outside management company. In this way  problems connected with your home and general environment receive  attention from people with first-hand knowledge of the circumstances.  3. What is the cost?  A small down payment and monthly payments projected on the following basis:  1 BEDROOM SUITE-$130 PER MO.  2 BEDROOM SUITE-$165 PER MO.  3 BEDROOM SUITE-$185 PER MO.  These payments could be lower to qualifying members. Once fixed,  these payments include all costs other than your own electricity consumption. There are no other charges. You may qualify for Provincial  Assistance of $52 per month for 5 years under family first Home Grant  Programme which will further reduce these payments.  7. Who can vote at meetings?  All members receive only one vote,  monthly payment.  irrespective of shares owned or  4. What are the benefits?  A. High quality housing at reasonable cost.  B. You control your own living environment co-operatively with other  interested members.  C. Control your own monthly payments by taking advantage of available government programmes and considering the well-being and  financial health of your co-operative.  8. Can you sell your interest in the Co-operative?  Yes. Sale of your shares in the Co-operative is usually quick and simple with no legal fees, etc. involved. Shares appreciate modestly in  accordance with the cost of living increase.  9. Are Co-operatives a new idea?  No. There have been co-operatives on-going for almost 20 years. The  oldest one in B.C. is in Vancouver and has been operating for close to  7 years, and presently there are over 30 co-operatives in the province.  10. What do the authorities say?  They find that this is one of the best ways to provide good housing for  people and to avoid low cost, run-down projects. This project has  agreement in principle from the Village of Gibsons and Central Mortgage and Housing Corporation.  D. Each member is considered to be a homeowner.  E. You become part of a large increasing organization throughout  Canada interested in lobbying for and improving the housing standards of individuals.  11 ��� What will be done about renovations?
