All the necessary permits  (Health Department, Fire Marshall, I.C.B.C, & Building  Inspectors) have been issued and approved. The Aquatic Society  is shooting for an opening date on or about January 31,1980. This  should allow time for the pool to be completed and operating  smoothly for use by the public.  The Aquatic Society reports that all work to this date has been  done locally which has already saved the community a substantial  amount of money. The general contractor, plumber, electrician  and other local tradesmen are to be commended for their interest  and for the impressive work they are putting into the project. The  co-operation and enthusiasm generated by the local people is a  great help in getting the facility built.  The next steps the Society Robi Peters has her current  must   plan   for   are   the   Red   Cross   Instructors  on a yearly basis. The fee will  cover costs of meeting places,  stationery, mailing of  information, etc., incurred by  the Society. The membership  will give voting privileges to a  paid up member as well as  placing the individual on a  mailing list to receive pertinent  information concerning the  operation of the pool by the  Aquatic Society. These  memberships will become  available when the pool is  officially open to the public on  or about January 31,1980. The  Aquatic Society hopes that  many residents will become  members to help make the  operation of the pool  responsive to the needs of the  community.  Further reports will be  forthcoming to keep residents  informed of the ongoing  progress of the Pender  Harbour Pool. For more  information please contact any  of the directors of the Society.

The Cantre for Adults celebrated its first birthday last  Thursday and marked the occasion with a cake.  School Board committee finds  No policy change  on buses needed  a��,ieport of the committee look��i-iaso complaints uf Port  Mellon parents about school bus driven was presented to the  School Board by Trustee Lloyd on Thunday night.  The committee had met with parents, drivers, principals,  George Hopkins and the Student Council and felt the Port Mellon  parents had some legitimate complaints, but that there is no need  to change Board policy or regulations.  Policy requires school bus drivers to complete their route,  taking children to their regular destination. If for some reason this  is impossible, the children should be returned to the school and  parents contacted. Buses must keep to their specified time  schedules and no; leave early. Drivers must report misbehaviour  and problems on the standardized forms to the principal of the  school the child attends. It was suggested that on entering the  school system, children in Kingergarten and Grade one should be  given an orientation course to include road safety when boarding  and leaving the bus and acceptable behaviour when travelling.  Trustee Lloyd felt Port Mellon parents should have no further  cause for complaints. Speaking for the parents, Sharon Astley  made it apparent that considerable hostility remains towards the  bus driver on their route and expressed concern that he be  replaced. Her request for radio phones to be installed in buses so  that children avoid long waits when the bus is delayed was referred  to George Hopkins.  The Board felt the need for continued liason between the parties  concerned and referred the report to the Management Committee.  Residents and property  owners on Gambier Island are  organizing to protest a  proposed copper-molybdenum  open-pit mine on the Island in  Howe Sound. According to  Mrs. Doreen M. Wakely,  Chairman of the Save Howe  Sound Committee, the first  that property owners heard  about the mine was an article in  the Northern Miner dated  August 30 of this year.  The proponents of the  scheme are a junior mining  company known ' as 20th  Century Energy Corporation.  It is understood that they have  drilled 12 holes to date in the  Douglas Bay area of the Island  and outlined a potential ore  body of 280 million tons of  copper-molybdenum. The  proposal is to institute an open-  pit mining operation which  would cost a minimum of $200  million to bring it into  production. It is estimated that  2,000 acres would be required  for such an operation.  A mine of this size would  require in excess of 300  workers, a mill to produce  concentrate for shipping,  several million gallons of fresh  make-up water per day, large  docking facilities, and a tailings  disposal site for 300 million  tons.  The mining company is  currently trying to raise  $60S,000 to further explore the  anomalous zone, said to be one  third of the area of the Island.  M.L.A. Don Lockstead told  the Coast News last week that  he will be making direct  representations to the  government on behalf of his  constituents and that he would  have attended the public  meeting held in Vancouver on  October 23 if he had been  advised of it in time.  Board  wins  Fears of Regional Directors  that the provincial government  intended to centralize land use  planning have apparently been  laid to rest after last week's  meeting with Municipal Affairs  Minister Bill Vander Zalm.  Director Harry Almond said  that unanimity that planning  remain where it was was  registered by representatives of  both the municipalities in  attendance and Regional  Directors and that the Minister  of Municipal Affairs had  seemed to accept this  viewpoint. .  Director David Hunter said  that there will be no change in  regional planning. "We came  away very pleased," said  Hunter. "The Regional  Districts won quite a battle."  programming, operation, and  maintenance of the pool The  directors of the Aquatic  Society, Jack Paterson,  Margaret Gooldrup, Shirley  Vader, and Robi Peters will be  in charge of pool management.  These people have sufficient  qualifications in aquatic and  related fields. Jack Paterson  has a wealth of past experience  in engineering and pool  operation which includes 13  years as a Building Superintendent at the Y.M.CA. in  Vancouver plus a Pool  Operator Certificate from  U.B.C The society reports that  Jack's volunteer services as  Project Co-ordinator have  already been invaluable in  choosing the best pool  equipment obtained at the  lowest possible prices. This has  greatly helped to keep the  project within the allotted  budget. He will be training  Aquatic Personnel to be  qualified pool operators to  assure the community high  1 .standards of pool operation  -,i#l��Jjnaintei)|uice.  >' ��.vThe -Society "secretary,  ��� ' Margaret Gooldrup, is a  qualified Medical Technologist  as we|l which will contribute to  maintaining high standards of  health in the pool area.  Shirley Vader, Society  president, is a graduate of  U.B.C. with a Bachelor's  Degree in Physical Education  with specialized courses in  aquatics. She completed her  professional year of secondary  teacher training at the  University of Victoria and has  been assisting Robi Peters with  summer swim classes and  school swim instruction as well.  Certificate and has been  involved in aquatics throughout her life���this includes  competitive, supervisory and  instructional capacities. Robi  first taught Sun Free Swim  Classes during High School  and for the last six years has  taught Pender Harbour  children during the summer  months. Her job as Recreation  Director for the past three  years has given her insight into  the recreation needs of the  community. All the Aquatic  Society Directors have lived in  the Pender Harbour Area for  many years.  The Aquatic Society hopes  to run the pool using local  people to fill job opportunities.  To this end, there has been  twelve people to date engaged  in qualifying for life-guard and  related status. Further  qualifying courses will be  offered When the pool is in  question.  The Pender Harbour  Aquatic Society will be  approaching the community  for. * input j jntft,..pool. RW-  gramming wMch will be  correlated into a Winter and  Spring Pool Schedule available  prior to opening day. The  public meeting on programming and pool information is scheduled for  November 22, 7:30 p.m. at  Pender Harbour High School.  The Aquatic Society would  like as many interested people  to come to the meeting as  possible.  Membership to the Pender  Harbour Aquatic Society will  become available for the  nominal fee of $3.00 per person  or $3.00 per couple to be paid  Allegations made  Staff problems  at St. Mary's  Allegations that all may not be well at St. Mary's Hospital were  made at the Regional Board meeting of October 25.  The discussion was initiated by Director George Glib who asked  why staffing at the hospital hu not Increased to go with tbe receatly  increased size. Director Joe Harrison of Pender Harbour thea took  up the matter. Harrison noted the importance of the hospital hi iht  community and said that he had no wish to sow seeds of hostility bit  there were some aspects that he could not ignore.  According to Harrison a letter had been signed by half a dozen  doctors which threatened to send the seriously ill to Vancouver  because of lack of nursing care. It is understood that the doctors have  subsequently withdrawn the letter.  Harrison said that there were two other documents which also  suggested that staff problems existed at the hospital.  Subsequent to the Regional Board meeting'the Coast News has  heard the hospital described as "a terrible place to work under the  present administration" and allegations have been made that tbe  nursing staff Is under a lot of pressure and is being mistreated oa a  personal level. It was alleged that the Operating Room staff and the  staff on the second floor were particularly unhappy and that many  staff members have left in recent weeks.

The undoubted charm of the intruder  was somewhat offset by the loss of the entire grape crop.  A delegation representing  the ratepayers of Area B  attended the Regional Board  meeting held on Thursday,  October 23, and took strong  exception to the attack  launched recently by Director  Charles Lee on the Director for  Area B, Chairman Ed  Nicholson, and on the Regional  Board generally for alleged  harassment of Mrs. Cooper,  owner of Coopers Green.  Director Lee took strong  exception to a suggestion made  by the ratepayers group that his  interest in the matter was  prompted by the fact that "a  real estate developer from Mr.  Lee's Area has invested a great  deal of money in an area in  close proximity to Cooper's  Green". The Area B ratepayers  brief continues, "For such a  developer, the acquisition of  Cooper's Green could mean a  private beach access area for  the purchasers of these lots and  consequent increase in the  value of this property..."  The Director for Area C  challenged this allegation  immediately and intimated that  he was prepared to take what  recourse available to him for  the protection of his good name  in the matter.  Chairman Ed Nicholson, as  the Director of the Area in  question, described himself as  being   in   the   moderate's  position between the "extremes" taken by the ratepayers  group and Director Lee. He  outlined for the Board the  background as he was aware of  it of the situation vis a vis  Cooper's Green, a situation  which he had "inherited* when  he joined the Board.  Directors voted to return the  topic to the table until next  month.  Patricia and Eric Hammond await Hallowe'en atop the  190-pound pumpkin which appeared in their garden  this year.  School Board ponders  Will ithe School Board  succumb to the siren offers of  the Village of Gibsons to renew  the lease on their present offices  or take up the Village offer ofa  30 year dollar-a-year lease on  land next to the Council office  on which to relocate their  portables, or will those who  favour the logic of a central  location at the hub of the  Sunshine Coast eventually  prevail?  In the discussion which  followed the report from  Secretary Mills of the Village  proposals for a new 3 year lease  with no opt-out clause without  penalty unless the Board  moved to a location acceptable  to the Village, the central  location argument surfaced  again to dance like a hobgoblin  from one orange pumpkin to  the next. The pumpkins,  complete with funny faces and  appropriate comments were  the Halloween gift of Trustee  Lloyd and replaced fur Ihis  occasion the customary  insignia for each Trustee.  The central location was  given a boost by the report  from Trustee Hodgins, Ihe  Boards observer on thc  Capilano College Board that  the college has requested  permission from the Ministry  of Education to acquire space  in Sechelt and that the School  Districts representative will bc  given voting status early in the  new year.  Trustee Puchalski gave  notice of his intention to  introduce a motion at thc next  meeting to discuss the  advantages of re-locating thc  Pender Harbour portables in  Gibsons giving the School  Board building and office space  of their own.

Rumours that all was not well at St.  Mary's Hospital have been current for the  last few months and Directors George  Gibb and Joe Harrison of the Regional  Board are to bc commended for their  courage in bringing the matter before the  public at the most recent Regional Board  meeting.  As Director Harrison said at the time,  the hospital is much too important to the  community for it to be made lightly the  centre of controversy. It is precisely the  importance of the hospital in the  community which makes mandatory any  reports of staff discontent be fully  investigated and remedial action taken if  such is needed.  We have said before and will say now  again that the Sunshine Coast is well  served by the staff of St. Mary's Hospital.  Many of our friends have returned from a  stay in St. Mary's and have sung the praises  of the staff for their willingness to provide  the extra effort required to make a hospital  stay as pleasantly friendly as possible.  Allegations that such a staff are  overworked or mistreated deserve the  fullest investigation and if there is truth to  the allegations, the fullest public support.  It is perhaps unfortunate that the  allegations have surfaced at a time when  the new Hospital Board has only just eased  themselves into the chairs of responsibility  and the members of the Hospital Board  have our sympathy in that regard. The  allegations, if true, are too important for  any felt sympathy to the Hospital Board to  mitigate against a full consideration of the  situation, however.  It is understood that, in light of the  public airing of concern at the Regional  Board meeting, the Hospital Board  Chairman and the Hospital Administrator  have in mind a press release. Let us hope  that they will ensure that no appearance of  a hasty sweeping of the matter under the  carpet will be allowed. Those who take  care of the infirm and the ailing of society  deserve nothing but the kindest of  treatment and it is now the responsibility  of the Hospital Board and of the  Administrator of the hospital to persuade  us convincingly that such is the case in our  local hospital.  The community should be prepared to  accept nothing less.  The biter bit  One can only deplore the turn of events  in the matter of the long-simmering  dispute in Halfmoon Bay about Cooper's  Green. It is a complex issue and  unfortunately the intrusion into the picture  of Director Charles Lee in the guise of  crusading knight has already had  unfortunate repercussions.  It is unfortunate when a regional  director is falsely accused of aiding  developer friends, as Director Lee  undoubtedly was at the last Regional  Board meeting. What, one is entitled to ask  however, is Director Lee doing making  sweeping denunciations of a fellow  director and the Regional Board itself in a  matter which is not within the scope of his  representational authority?  It is the contention here that the  contentious matter of Cooper's Green  inherited by the Director for Area B, Ed  Nicholson, has been diplomatically  handled by Nicholson and we can only  assume that it is Director Lee's unbending  determination to score points at the  expense of the Regional Board Chairman  which has led him into a situation which  has seen him accused by the ratepayers for  the Area, whose representative he is not, of  having nefarious motivation.  We have a certain sympathy for the  Director for Area C and feet that it was  unfortunate that the Area B ratepayers  drew conclusions from Lee's activity in  their area which are undoubtedly  unfounded. The old adage that he who  lives by the sword must die by the sword  would seem to apply in this instance.  Director Lee's entirely deplorable  tendency to scatter insinuations about the  conduct of his fellow board members and  in this latter case to intrude himself into a  situation which really did'not concern him  has brought him now to a situation where,  his own integrity is being challenged  irresponsibly.  The fact that the developer in question  was a recent alternate for Director Lee is,  of course, what caused the ratepayers of  Area B to draw their unfortunate  conclusions. We believe that Director Lee  was motivated in the matter by a genuine  concern for the well-being of an elderly  widow. His ardour for the defence of the  defenceless was rather enhanced, we feel,  by the circumstance that she lived in the  area of the Regional Board Chairman.  Having made his customary public  splash of righteous indignation and  allegation at the expense of the Regional  Board Chairman, Lee now finds a group  questioning his own integrity. It is a case  of the biter bit.  ...from the files of the COAST NEWS  FIVE YEARS AGO  Construction Aggregates announces plans for a $6 million gravel  production plant at Hillside near Port  Mellon.

Peterson  At no time and under no  circumstances have I pretended  to be an economist. I'm the  kind of character who carries  what money he has, be it  twenties or tens or four or five  ones, crumpled in this pocket���  or was it that pocket? Generally  speaking if I fumble through  the pockets of the clothes I'm  wearing and find enough to buy  a newspaper or a beer or some  such simple pleasure I have no  great quarrel with the world of  finance. In emergencies I, can1  with equanimity cope with  looking through the pockets of  the jacket I wore last week.  I've striven to give up the  deceptively simple worlds of  charge cards and other aids to  instant solvency because they  require a greater attention to  matters financial than I am  willing to pay. If my pockets  are empty and last week's  jacket relinquishes nothing  then I contemplate the  character building qualities of  abstinence.  Since the banks began to  replace the civilized procedure  of a telephone call in favour of  a $4.00 charge for an absent-  minded overdradt, I have even  eschewed the convenience of  the cheque book. In these small  ways have I sought to simplify  my fiscal life. It is an outdated,  an archaic approach even, but  in the days of ever tighter and  more expensive credit that lie  ahead I can expect my small  simplicities to stand me in ever  better stead.  These beguiling and intimate  revelations are intended as a  preamble to some comment on  matters of international  finance and are fair warning  that the musings of such a fiscal  simpleton may mean very little.  No one, I am sure, will cut this  column from the page and rush  with its advice in hand to the  nearest stock broker.  George Bernard Shaw once  observed, however, that if all of  the economists in the world  were laid end to end they still  wouldn't reach a conclusion  and such being the case why  should even a rural scribe fear  to offer his opinions? It has  become apparent that no one,  with the possible exception of  the oil companies, has any clear  idea what they are doing. It is  my contention that the  emperors of our financial  institutions have no clothes and  perhaps no one is better  equipped to observe the fact  than such an innocent as I.  Let us begin, then, with the  puzzling business of the interest  rates. They are, as I am sure  you are aware, at a record high  level. They have been raised  four times since the  Conservatives came to power  six months ago, raised with the  acquiescence ofa Conservative  party which railed against high  interest rates when the Liberals  were reputedly in power. I say  'reputedly' because it has  become manifest that in these  matters our elected representatives are not in power whatever  their political stripe. Gerald  Bouey, Governor of the Bank  of Canada, is in power and we,  in the words of Shakespear's  Cassius, 'lesser mortals peep  about between his huge legs to  find ourselves dishonourable  graves'.  Mr. Bouey agrees that the  (.resultant unemployment  upsurge attendant on the high  interest rates will be 'awkward'  for Canadians but the dollar  must be defended. He argues  that our rates must be higher  than the American rates,  though our inflation is lower,  so that money will continue to  be invested in this country.  Let's be magnanimous and  overlook the fact that a  clerking error made in a New  York bank recently left the  impression that there was a lot  more money in circulation in  the United States than was  actually the case and drove up  the American interest rates and  the follow-the-leader Canadian  rates for ��� no good reason  whatsoever. It is not for. us to  question these matters. It is our  part to shell out our hard-  earned cash without complaint  when the financial emperors  indicate the time is ripe whether  they be right or no.  So, with magnanimity I say,  let's turn away from these  unfortunate evidences of  human fallibility in the highest  banking circles and contemplate Mr. Bouey's defence of  the dollar theory. There was an  article not too long ago in  Business Week by Canadian  publisher Mel Hurtig which  made a most interesting point.  The enormous Canadian trade  deficit which is the root cause  of our vanishing dollar is not  caused, according to Hurtig, by  Canadians buying more than,  they sell. In fact, says Hurtig,  we sell more than we buy. The  deficits are built on the fact that  so much money goes out of  Canada every year in dividends  to foreign investors that what  would be a trade surplus  becomes a huge and growing  deficit. If this is so, and I  suspect it is, I am left puzzled as  to how Mr. Bouey's high  interest rates to attract  investment dollars which will in  turn command further  dividends is in the long range  interest of Canada. Cou^ie  this, if you will, with the present  government's determination to  get rid of the profit making  portions of Petrocan, for  example, and thc absurdity is  complete.  Now fellow sufferers, as if  Bouey's Bankers Bonanza  weren't enough for our  embattled budgets to cope  with, pretty soon we are going  Slings 8e Arrows ��^  George Matthews  to have to deal with substantial  increases in the cost of fuel as  our government and the blue-  eyed Arabs of Alberta raise  prices to the world level which  was called gouging a few short  months ago when the Arabs  and the oil companies  established it. And it's not just  in our cars that we will pay.  Truckers bringing lettuce from  California will be paying more  for their gas and we'll be paying  more for our lettuce and  everything else besides. This  despite the fact that oil  companies' profits soared in  the third quarter of this year to  astronomical heights.  And there's the rub. All of  the sacrifices that Canadians  are making and all the  sacrifices that they are going to  be called upon to make are not  going to do one bit of good if  good be defined as the well-  being of the average Canadian  or the control by Canada of its  own economic destiny. As the  banking and oil profits soar,  the economic control of  Canada accelerates its progress  into a few generally foreign  hands. We are sacrificing not  for our future but for the oil  companies future. We are  defending a dollar by  encouraging foreign investment when the dollar is in  danger because of the  dividends that must already be  paid to foreign investors.  We have one all powerful old  man who calls his automatic  emulation of American rising  interest rates, even when the  increases are occasioned by  simple clerical error in the  tabulation of the money  supply, who dignifies his  conditioned reflex, I say, by the  name of an economic policy  and who is confronted with  successive elected governments  so bereft of ideas and  convictions to have the courage  of that they can only bow the  trembling knee before the  financial despot.  This fiscal simpleton says the  emperor has no clothes. If we  are being forced into sacrifices  they should be made with no  view to regaining some control  of our own economic fate in the  long term. What's happening  now is that the last crumpled  bill is being yarded from our  pockets so that the foreign  control of our economic lives  can proceed at an ever quicker  pace. Bouey says he is  defending the dollar. To me it  looks like selling the farm.  Slings and Arrows not available  this week.  An Open Letter to the British  Columbia Institute of  Agrologists, B.C. Federation of  Agriculture, the United Church  of Canada and SPEC and to all  other individuals and organizations that support the concept  of preserving agricultural land  under the aegis of the B.C. Land  Commission,  by David P. Stupich, M.L.A.  I have heard from and read  statements by some of you  expressing disappointment that  the New Democratic Party is  not speaking out more in  favour of preservation of  agricultural land and in favour  of the decisions made by the  B.C. Land Commission. On the  other hand, you want to avoid  involving yourselves in the  political process, apparently to  keep your dainty hands from  being roughened by the hard  work of electoral politics.  Friends, the effort to save  our farm lands is a political  fight. It has been from the very  beginning. Surely it must be  clear by now that it will be won  or lost through the political  process and none other.  You may recall some of the  heat and fury that was  generated when the Land  Commission Act was first  introduced. As Minister of  Agriculture at that time, I  vividly recall that it prompted a  want of confidence motion in  the Agriculture Minister, which  I believe is the first time that  ever happened in our  Legislature. The Social Credit,  Liberal and Conservative  parties were all represented in  the Legislature at that time and  each one of them fought to  prevent adoption of the Land  Commission Act with an  unparalleled ferocity in the  province's recent history.  The N.D.P. is the only  political institution in our  province that has fought for the  preservation of our relatively  short supply of agricultural  land and it certainly stood  alone doing something useful  about it. During the bitter  battle, it would have been  helpful to the N.D.P.  administration if organizations  and individuals like yourselves  had rolled up sleeves and given  it full-hearted support.  Nevertheless, the N.D.P. used  its mandate of government  with an unwavering determination to establish the Land  Commission   and   the   agri  cultural land reserves.  During that fight and up  until the election in December  1973, leaders of the Social  Credit party in particular  promised to take away the  power of the B.C. Land  Commission if they were  elected. That is one promise  they certainly did keep.  The first action of the new  Social Credit regime in 1976,  with respect to the B.C. Land  Commission, was to replace the  dedicated, knowledgeable and  non-partisan members of that  commission with a hand-  picked group of individuals  who, for the most part, had cut  their political teeth by  involving themselves in the  bitter campaign to fight the  Land Commission legislation.  One Socred appointee even  hosted a partisan fund-raising  rally of Social Credit on his  home property.  This is a political fight. All of  us could be doing more to draw  the general public's attention to  the present administration's  systematic attack on the  principle of agricultural and  land preservation by piecemeal  destruction of the mechanisms  we put in place to save our  farmlands.  It is hard work to monitor  and alert the public to this step-  by-step Socred strategy but if it  was done effectively then the  present administration would  be somewhat more circumspect  about the ways in which it  proceeds with its avowed policy  of many years standing. Merely  urging the N.D.P. to speak up  more often is a cop out.  If organizations want to give  more than lip service to the  principle of preserving  agricultural land, they must  seek out and work with allies in  the political process. Actions  speak louder than words���to  governments as well as to  everyone else. And "action"  involves something more than  urging someone else to stand  up and fight alone.  There is only one way to  preserve agricultural land in  the province of British  Columbia and to make the  Land Commission effective. If  you are not prepared to involve  yourselves in political action,  those who are so prepared will  win the fight against you. How  important is this issue to you?

In the article I am quoted as  having stated that I estimated  the bear population along this  portion of the sunshine Coast  to be approximately 800���  artificially inflated from a  normal population level of  about 200.1 find the statements  credited to me curious, because  to the best of my recollection, I  have never made any estimates  or guesses, or hypothesized  about the number of bears in  our community. I have in the  past expressed my opinion that  the bear population is likely  beyond its natural carrying  capacity, but I have never  reached a figure that might  reflect their density.  During the week following  publication of this article, I  therefore contacted the Coast  News (twice) and requested  that the author of the article  call me and explain where the  figures came from and that a  retraction of the statements  erroneously attributed to me  appear in the next edition of the  Coast News. I was assured that  the author would return my call  and that a correction would  appear in an 'oops' column in  the next edition. Neither  appears to have occured.  This may seem to you a  trivial matter, and indeed, it  has caused me no embarrassment or inconvenience. But  there is a principle behind the  issue: Please don't tell your  readers I said something that I  didn'tl And if you do make an  unwitting mistake, correct it.  By failing to do so, you merely  make another mistake.  Yours sincerely,  J.A. Stephen Jr.  Conservation Officer,  Sechelt Detachment.  Editor's Note:  We owe Mr. Stephen two  apologies.

Lions sst record straight  Editor:  Once and for all, the record  should be set straight  concerning the Roberts Creek  Lions Club and Cliff Gilker  Park.  When the Club was formed  last summer, members decided  to take on, as one of their  projects, the upkeep and  restoration of trails and bridges  in the park. We applied to the  Sunshine Coast Regional  District for permission to do  this. The Board agreed with our  intentions, but asked that  before we undertake any major  projects, we present our plans  to them for approval. To which  we agreed.  We realize that we do not  own or control the Park���it is  crown land under lease to the  Regional  District. We only  wish to do a civic duty, and that  is the care, upkeep and  restoration of various portions  of the Park.  At no time did we propose its  use as a dog training centre.  Nor did we offer space to the  Army Cadets for a training  facility. We know that we do  not have the authority. The  entire matter was blown out of  proportion as a result of Area  D Director Harry Almond's  misunderstanding and  comments made at a Regional  Board meeting. We contacted  Director Almond and cleared  up the matter, but the  misunderstanding persists. We  hope this letter will resolve it.  Sincerely,  Peter McCombie  President,  Roberts Creek Lions Club  Agricultural Lands  (cont'd)  campaigned against the Social  Credit government because  they felt the issues were overriding the question of their  participation in the political  process.

It  followed a small creek entering  the North Arm near the  western boundary of the  reserve, north to a height of  land near Sixteenth Avenue.  Several other branch skidroads  testify to thc existence at that  time ofa large railway or log  dump at thc bottom of the main  road.  Daggclt and Furry had  several other railways along the  North Arm shore. A long ditch,  similar to those initiated by  I'raser, was employed near the  loot of Blenheim Street to float  the logs through the flats.  Another of their dumps was at  Wreck Beach, now the mecca  of nude bathers, where a log  chute was used to propel the  logs down the steep bank. A  chute was also used in the  ravine near thc tip of Pt. Grey  in the same spot where, years  later, a cable system was  employed to raise the materials  used in building the University.  There was also a camp at this  site according to one source.  Although the records are  unspecific, it is thought that  Daggett and Furry logged this  area until 1890. There is some  doubt on this point but since  the Hastings lease expired that  Pages  from a Life-Log  Peter Trower  year and the renewed lease the  year following, it is presumed  that no operations on behalf of  the Sawmill Company were  carried on here after this time.  One further Hastings  contractor active during this  period, although perhaps the  least important, was James  Gillespie. He operated only one  camp on the south side of False  Creek near the intersection of  Granville Street and Fourth  Avenue. While there ' is no  complete record of his  activities, it is known that  Gillespie logged here in the  early 1880's. John Malcolm  (Jack) Stewart, the same man  who had experimented  unsuccessfully with the barge  based steam donkey at  Kitsilano, two years prior to  this, worked for Gillespie as  woods foreman in 1884. The  main skidroad used by  Gillespie followed the present  location of Granville Street to  about Broadway, then turned  southwest. Branch roads led off  into the thick stand of timber  that then covered Shaughnessy  Heights.  The Hastings Company  contractors removed in the  25 year period between 1865  and 1890, the bulk of the timber  from the site of present day  Vancouver. Since their  business was logging rather  than land clearing, they left in  their wake a wasteland of  gigantic stumps, much  standing scrub timber and a sea  of branches, slabs and  miscellaneous slash. It fell to  the clearing contractors and the  settlers themselves to remove  Ihis debris from the newly  subdivided sectors before any  actual building could  commence. This they  accomplished by means of  dynamite, fire and plain hard  work. They were more than  equal to the task and with  amazing rapidity, the city  began to take shape.  MMWMWNNMWMtMMMHMM  While the burgeoning of  Vancouver from village to  fledgling metropolis in the  space of a few years is an oft  told tale that scarcely bears  repeating, some idea of the  settlement as it appeared  around this time can be gained  from the memoirs of the  veteran pioneer, W.H.  Gallagher: "The townsite of  Granville (Gastown) was a  small, oblong, less that twenty  acres���four blocks along the  shore of Burrard Inlet, low  lying at the narrowest  separation of the Inlet and  False Creek. During the high  tide months of June and  December, the water from both  arms of the sea flowed freely  across what is now Columbia  Street. Prior to 1885, it was  nothing more than a secluded  pioneer settlement; a clearing  350 yards along the shore, 250  yards into the forest, boxed in  by tall trees, damp, wet the  actual clearing littered with  stumps and forest debris and a  profusion of undergrowth  including luxuriant skunk  cabbage. A great wall of trees  stood along Hastings Street  and faced the waterfront. Two  similar walls flanked the  clearing along Cambie Street to  the west and Carrall Street to  the east. All else was verdant  woods. The trees east of Carrall  Street were felled in 1885; those  west of Cambie in 1886."  Those walls of timber would  topple as the gaggle of rude  shacks exploded outward and,  curiously enough, the job  would not be done by the  ubiquitous Hastings Company  as the wood was not part of  their vast bailiwick. In 1862,  John Morton, Sam Brighouse  and William Hailstone had  preempted Lot 185, a 550 acre  tract encompassing much of  what is now the West End and  downtown Vancouver. When  the area was later subdivided  and sold as city lots, it became  WMMMMMMMMMMMMMMW  known as the Brighouse estate.  It was the First large area to be  taken up on the south shore of  the Inlet and was purchased for  the inevitable $1.00 per acre.  Ostensibly the owners, more  farsighted than most of that  era, were more interested in the  speculative value of the land  than the quick money to be  realized from the timber for  there is no record of any  logging being done there until  1885. At this time, land values  rose considerably owing to the  proposed extension of the  C.P.R. from its then terminus  at Port Moody to Coal  Harbour. Prior to 1881, 200  acres adjoining the First  Narrows reserve had been sold,  leaving 350 acres among the  three partners. In 1884, a third  of this was sold to the C.P.R.  along the foreshore of Coal  Harbour. The logging of what  remained of the estate was  undertaken on behalf of the  respective owners.  Logging commenced in  1885, on the 200 odd acres still  owned by Brighouse and his  partners. It was contracted by  the firm of McMahon, Carr  and Wright. Phillip McMahon  and Hugh Carr were the active  partners, McMahon being a  teamster. A camp of 30 men  was established on English Bay  near the end of what is now  Bidwell Street. Some well  known loggers of the time  worked this camp including  Jack Springer, a barker, James  Lattimore, a hooktender and a  teamster by the name of Patrick  Myers.  Part of the timber from this  operation was dumped at  various railways along English  Bay and Coal Harbour as the  slope of the land dictated for  the ox teams always hauled  downhill. The main dump was  at the foot of Broughton Street.  The area logged by McMahon,  Carr and Wright extended  from Burrard Street to Nicola  and from Georgia to English  Bay. The logging was  apparently completed by 1887,  for in the spring of this year,  lots were being sold in the area.

Thompson's. Fear  And Loathing In Las Vegas.  (Random House/ Popular  Library, 1971). The book  originally appeared in  installments in Rolling Stone  Magazine in la(c 1971 and the  ensuing eight years have made  it an even more interesting  document of the turn of the last  decade', particularly for those  who had to make the difficult  transition from the energy,  hope and idealism of the  celebrant Sixties to the manic,  burned-out despair and  disillusion (and dissolution) of  the self-indulgent Seventies.  The contrast between the  decade just past and the decade  just beginning is at the heart of  what is billed, with some  justification, as "a Savage  Journey to the Heart of the  American Dream". Instead df  the Sixties pilgrimage to the  peace and love Mecca, of San  Francisco, we are led out  literally into the desert, "the  wasteland" so beloved by  artists and critics alike, to a  mad amusement park city,  a timeless 24-hour neon  Pandemonium rising out 6f the  desert Inferno. The "event" we  are to witness, unlike the Sixties  "events"-, the protest rallies,  rock concerts like Woodstock,  etc, which involved mass  participation, is a typical  Seventies event; the Mini 400  cross-country motorcylce and  dune-buggy race, an absurd  "non-event" which cannot even  be watched, let alone "covered"  in a journalistic sense, since the  starting point is perpetually  obscured by clouds_ of dust  raised by succeeding waves of  riders leaving and passing the  checkpoint. No one participates but the drivers themselves  and nobody knows or seems to  care who's winning. It's just an  excuse to go to Vegas and get  wasted.  Thompson and his companion, a 300 pound Samoan  lawyer, have come prepared in  a rented red convertible called  "the Shark'', loaded with  virtually every kindofdrugand  intoxicant from simple quarts  of rum and tequila on down  through grass, LSD, mescaline,  cocaine, amphetamines,  barbituates, amyl nitrates, and  a pint of raw ether, not to  mention an illegal magnum  pistol. Rolling through the  desert, firing at iguanas, tape-  deck and radios blaring,  terrifying hitch-hikers, they  spend their time in Las Vegas  running up a huge and  unpayable hotel bill, getting  thrown out of casinos,  wrecking the car, and abusing  every drug known to man.  Fleeing from the uncover-  able "event", not to mention the  hotel bill and the reckoning for  the virtual destruction of their  room, understandably  somewhat, paranoid by this  time, they decide to foil their  pursuers by returning to Vegas,  ditching the conspicuous car,  renting an equally conspicuous  white Caddy convertible and  moving in to another hotel to  cover, of all things, the  National Conference of  District Attbrneys four-day  seminar on Narcotics and  Dangerous Drugs. This too,  proves to be a "non-event",  though for different reasons,  and the insane orgy continues;  another destroyed hotel room,  another wrecked car, another  handful of blown brain-cells.  The conference is a "non-  event" because as Thompson  points out, in 1971 the police  were still wasting millions of  dollars making films and  holding   seminars   on   the  dangers of drugs that were no  longer in popular use,  attempting to come to grips  with a psychedelic "Drug  Culture" which no longer  existed. You can tell the  decades by their drugs, he  mggests. LSD, mescaline, and  he cannabis variations were  he drugs of the Sixties, when  .yndon Johnson was in the  White Houce, when people still  lelieved in causes, when  changing your mind" meant  verything from political  hanges of ideology to dosing  'ourself with consciousness-  .xpanding hallucinogenics. By  1971, he points out, ihost drug  dealers wouldn't even handle  quality LSD or mescaline  because you couldn't sell the  stuff at any pfice. "The big  market, these days, is in  downers. Reds and smack���  Seconal and heroin���and a  hellbroth of bad domestic grass  sprayed fvith everything from  arsenic to horse tranquillizers.  What sells today is whatever  (Screws) You Up���whatever  short-circuits your brain and  grounds it out for the longest  possible timc.for every ex-  speed-freak who drifted, for  relief, into smack, there are 200  kids who went straight to the  needle off Seconal. They never  even bothered to try speed.  "Uppers are no longer  stylish. Methadrine is almost as  rare, on the 1971 market, as  pure acid of DMT. 'Consciousness expansion' went out  with L.B.J....and it is worth  noting, historically, that  downirs came in with Nixon."  Thompson also offers some  interesting insights into why  the "consciousness expansion"  obsession of the prophets of the  Sixties, Timothy Leary et al,  backfired. Why should a whole  generation suddenly prefer a  faceful of mace to the Roman  candles of the Mind? Because,  Thompson observes, the whole  idea of1 consciousness  expansion is still caught up in  the ancient mythic/religious  presupposition that there is  something to expand to,  something that can be reached,  whether you call it Oodhead,  enlightenment, "cellular  wisdom" or any of the other  pseudo-religious or mystical  catchwords. When the seekers  ForallvourCarp*t��  Wiosheen  Carpet  i No  CteanW  " ****** 1  Uym^r        T. Sinclair  ^VJ"-      885-9327  of the Sixities realized that, in  fact, the only-thing out there  that can actually be reached is  the frontier of your own sanity,  that God cannot be bought for  two dollars a hit, they found  themselves confronted with the  same existential dilemma that  had sparked it all; the need to  find some way of dealing with  the world as it b. In short, if  you want to reject the  prevailing ethics and moral  framework of your society, well  and good, but you must be  prepared to replace them with  ethics and standards of your  own. Otherwise you're locked  into the Endless Bummer, the  Void, Vacuum-Land, where  "the Hollow Men" whose "dried  voices" "Are quiet and  meaningless/As wind in dry  .grass/Or rats' feet over broken  glass" stagger around  muttering helplessly, "The  horror, the horror..." like  Conrad's Kurtz or his recent  reincarnation, Col. Kurtz in the  film Apocalypse Now.  Thompson and his lawyer  are typical examples of what  happened to the Sixties in one  very limited sense. Rampages  of senseless nihilistic  destruction have been ��� a  prominent feature of the  Seventies, and many of the  people involved have been  former "flower-children" like  the members of the infamous  "Manson family". Still, in  retrospect, what is interesting  about Thompsons book is what  he didn't see, for in the latter  part of this decade we have seen  many of the gentle revolutionaries of the Sixties re-emerge  from limbo and this time  they're not coming with  slogans and flowers. They're  popping up in politics, in the  professions, even in business,  where the notion of "hip  capitalism" would have been  sneered at by both sides of the  fence ten years ago, and this  time they're coming with ten  years of solid work at making  their alternatives, political,  ecofogical, or economic, viable  in* a practical sense, and the  knowledge that the only way to  beat the system is to be the  system. Maybe Las Vegas just  wasn't the right place to look  for the American Dream. All  for now.  Coast News, October 30,1979  Passing of Dr. McCreary  On July 10 of this year it was  our pleasure to note within the  pages of the Coast News a  distinguished Gibsons resident  and Officer of the Order of  Canada, Dr. John F.  McCreary.  Dr. McCreary, aged 64, had  retired as Dean of Medicine at  the University of British  Columbia in 1972 and had lived  since in happy semi-retirement  in his home on Gibsons Bluff.  On Friday, October 12, Dr.  McCreary was the guest  speaker in Harrison Hot  Springs at the reunion of the  first graduating class from the  U.B.C. School of Medicine. It  is reported that his speech was  greeted with a standing  ovation.  At the time Mrs. McCreary  was visiting her ailing mother  and Dr. McCreary was  spending Saturday alone in his  Gibsons home while eagerly  anticipating a visit from his  son Jamie from Ontario.  Unfortunately death came  peacefully to Dr. McCreary  while he waited for his son's  visit and Jamie McCreary  found his father slumped in his  favourite chair upon his arrival  on the morning of Sunday,  October 14.  The Coast News joins the  many friends of Dr. McCreary  in expressing sincere sympathy  to his widow and family.  ,pflraiy>*fierew*MW'.j.ii,MnwAH^^  Dr. John McCreary as he was pictured In the Coast  News last July.  Carl's corner  by Carl Chrismas  A short one this week from a  long way off, or so it seems.  Monday:  Up at dawn to catch a flight  to Toba Inlet, total trip maybe  45 - SO minutes. High winds  gusting to gale force cancelled  the flight.  Tuesday:  A loaded Beaver picked me  up in Porpoise Bay Tuesday  a.m. and dropped me at  Campbell River for flight to  Toba. What with loaded  schedules after Monday's  storm, everyone wanted to fly  at once. It was one of those  "time to spare, go by air" days.  Total trip���seven hours.  Wednesday:  Today I went for a swim in  Toba Inlet. A wet, buckskin log  and caulkless boots caused the  dunking. A floater coat and a  helping hand improved the  environment; an 18 mile trip to  camp for a complete change  iced the cake. Needless to say, a  pair of caulk boots were added  to my garb. I hope my next  swim is a January dip in  Australia.  There's a new language in the  woods. This evening's  conversations around my  supper table consisted mostly  of choppers, their functions as  logging machines, pressures,  hydraulics, collectives and  many other technical terms not  related to fixed wing flight.  The bucking of felled trees  into logs is governed by weight.  The bucker must judge what  the chopper can lift safely and  swing to the landing for loading  on trucks.

There are many changes  going on in the world these  days. I have been out of touch  for a few short years with  changes in the woods, but  thought I was up on aviation.  But women have entered the  game to a greater extent than I  had thought.  On the flight from Campbell  River to the head of Toba Inlet  our loaded Beaver was piloted  by a mere slip of a girl. And  beside her in the right hand seat  was another slip of a girl. She  was a contract log scaler and  her job was to scale for the  helicopter loggers.  She was returning to work  after a shift to town and the  bright lights. Behind both of  them sat two young, hung-over  loggers and, in the rear seat, a  grizzled old-timer with snow on  the roof and a deep-seated  conviction that he was born at  least 50 years too soon!

On November 17 the people of Gibsons will be asked to vote on a  referendum for a permanent moorage Marina in Gibsons Harbour.   .  Why should we vote YES?  The historic and beautiful Lower Village of Gibsons has become the sick  man of the Sunshine Coast. The last few years have seen the loss of the  pharmacy, the hardware store and the 60 year old Elphinstone Co-op.  Residents of the Lower Village are being denied services which are their  historic right.  How can the Marina help?  Traditionally the Lower Village has taken its sustenance from the sea.  Today the harbour is choked to suffocation point. Our commercial fleet is  struggling in the inadequate facility of the Government Wharf amidst a  host of pleasure boats sharing the facility. The Marina will free the  Government Wharf for commercial vessels, provide safe anchorage for  our pleasure boats, and take Gibsons a long step into the thriving future it  deserves.  How much will It coat?  The cost of the Marina will be $1.66 million dollars. Of that sum the  Village will be required to borrow less than 10% and even that will be paid  back in revenues from the Marina. The balance will come from the Federal  and Provincial Governments. If it is not forthcoming the Marina will simply  not be built.  $1.66 million dollars will go into the economy of the Village and the  taxpayers can only benefit. r  Let's vote YES on November 17. We have nothing to lose  and tomorrow to gain.  Voter Eligibility  - All those whose principal residence is within the Village of  Gibsons boundaries.  - All property owners within the Village of Gibsons boundaries.

Sponsored By Concerned Taxpayers And Residents OTHHOT  ������MmmMi  ,  Prisons dehumanizing  Maryanne's viewpoint  Coast News, October 30,1979  by Maryanne West  The Indian people have a  saying that you shouldn't judge  another person until you've  walked a mile in their  moccasins and Judge Cunliffe  Barnett of Williams Lake did  just that recently, spending two  days under prison conditions in  Oakalla.  . His conclusions confirm  what we've been told for years  by inmates, sociologists,  criminologists, Parliamentary  Committees, et al, that prison is  a "cold, hostile, dehumanizing  environment" and that the  likelihood of rehabilitation in a  place which creates, in a very,  short time, "an intense dislike  for authority" is slim.  On any given day Canada's  federal and provincial prisons  have a population of  approximately 20,000 at a cost  to the taxpayers of nearly $500  million annually. Of these  inmates over 60% are not first  offenders. The figures come  from an Atlas magazine report,  Prisons: A Global Failure.  The statistics also support  the opinion of Judge Barnett  who said he found it  frightening to find himself  disliking the guards and their  relationship lo himself as a  prisoner almost immediately.  Judge Barnett described the  philosophy of rehabilitation as  "shopworn"; we're deluding  ourselves with wishful  thinking. He will undoubtedly  Ihink very carefully before  sentencing anyone lo prison for  a first offence and only do so if  there is really no alternative; "It  does them no good and  therefore does us no good  cither."  The.e's no doubt the  medieval fortress of Oakalla  belongs to an era when prisons  were intended to be only  punitive, without even thewell-  meaning intention to  rehabilitate.  It is, of course, not only  Canadians who are facing a  breakdown of the penal system.  The    Atlas    report    includes  excerpts from newspapers of  many countries, including a  Times Of London editorial  which reads in part: "Ttis; blunt  fact is that prisons can no  longer cope. It is not just the  appallingly over crowded  conditions, nor the antiquity  and unsuitability of so many  prisons nor, on the otherside,  is it merely the problem of  obtaining more officers or  paying existing ones more.  Money would obviously help to  build new institutions and to  improve the lot of the prison  officers, but that would not be  the end of it.  The crisis of prisons is also a  crisis of philosophy and faith.  The neat assumptions which  govern the establishment of the  prison system in the past  century no longer apply with  such certainty. The conflicting  views of the penal reformers  and the proponents of  punishment have resulted in  the uneasy and constantly  shifting compromise."  In Denmark the authorities  do not believe prison  rehabilitates anyone���a  penitentiary's basic job is  deprivation of freedom,  nothing else. The Ringe State  Penitentiary���called the prison  of JTomorrow���is an ex-  perfment. By providing  material comfort, an atmosphere which strives to some  extent to mirror the outside  world and provides daily  contact between male and  female prisoners, they hope to  make the inmates feel less bitter  towards society and thus cut  down on the numbers repeating  their offense.  In Canada, Ontario is  encouraging some prisoners to  work outside the institution at  regular paying jobs���others do  such work as forestry, clearing  snow, caring for handicapped  children, and most Provinces  are trying to cut down  escalating costs by making it  possible for those who cannot  pay fines to pay off their debt to  society by community work or  through diversion projects  Just because we are law  abiding citizens whose worst  offence may be the occasional  sliding through a stop sign or  defrauding the Post Office by  re-using an uncancelled stamp,  doesn't really let us off the  hook of responsibility for how  our society treats those who  break the rules and are caught.  We're unlikely to have to  witness a judicial hanging, but  if Capital Punishment is reinstated, it will be carried out  on our behalf.  Let's not fool ourselves, the  inmates of our prisons are not  being helped, they're just  locked away out of sight and  out of mind. Is this really what  we mean by Human Rights or  do we believe those who  trangress and relinquish those  rights? We might at least be  honest about it.

Crisis Centre needed  by Janet  On New Years Day, 1979,1  was that solitary figure on the  beach gazing upon'the silent  sea. Each wave that lapped the  shore sang to me of happier  days. The chilly winds whirled  about my care-worn figure. I  wrapped my sweater about my  shivering body and tears  streamed down my face.  The depths of misery to  stand alone at anytime is a  my soul so that it seemed the  God-forsaken world had  swallowed up ali the love I had  ever known and spit me up  upon the beach with the foam,  dissolving into desolation and  crying with the seagulls. How  many have stood in my shoes?  I was rejected. I ran to  Sechelt but it had slipped away  for no coffee shops or grocery  stores were open so I had no  food; gas stations stood empty;  the bus depot was closed; not  even a church door was open.  The sinking sun screamed no  planes would leave. Sechelt,  sporting its signs of "Happy  New Year" had shut the door  on me too.  The cold of New Years Day  nipped at the marrow of my  bones. In search of heat, I  strode towards St. Mary's  Hospital. There I fumbled  through the phone book  desperately looking for Crisis  ���Center Sechelt���no���Sunshine  Coast Crisis Center���no���  "Oh,"God, help me!" My dime  fell from my hand and tears  welled up into my eyes again. I  desperately needed to hear one  friendly voice this New Years  Day.  The thought crossed my.  mind that I should plunge into  the ocean becoming the years  first fatality complete with tag  on toe.  It still wounds me to recall  the day. The reality stabs my  conscience to tell the tale for  others who walk alone on the  tight-rope of tragedy.  Remember when you are  wining and dining and are  warm at home, someone out  there is sinking into an ocean of  loneliness and searching for a  lifeline.

In the third game played, the  Sechelt United kept pace with  the leaders by eking out a 2 -1  victory over Sechelt Redskins.  The United have seven points  for third place in the league.  The Redskins are currently  second from the bottom with  three points. All teams have  played six games.  Next week there are just two  games on the card with  Wakefield Stompers taking on  the Canfor Raiders at Langdale  at 12 noon and the Bananas of  Pender Harbour hosting the  Sechelt Redskins in a game  scheduled for 2:00 p.m.  Here he is, the terror of the Golden Agers. Fire Chief  Carl Horner was asked to bowl in a Beat the Chief  contest against the Golden Agers Bowling Club. Carl  was to be handicapped but after his less than top notch  167 score the handicap will probably go to the Senior  Citizens. The Golden Agers will bowl their games this  Tuesday.  On the Rocks ^  by Helen Sallis  The Arbutus Club is about to  be overrun with a group of very  enthusiastic curlers! They are  hosting a junior bonspiel on  November 3 and 4 and we're  proud that two of our school  teams will bc competing. Skip  Frank Chamberlin will have  Uelorcs Taphorn, Rick  Buckmaster, and Graham  Solomon with him while  Martin Brooks will be skip for  Shayne Davis, Kevin Van  Velzcn, and Tony Brooks.  Good luck and good curling!  October 20 was actually the  start of what promises to be a  bus\ and interesting season for  our junior curlers. Nineteen of  them attended a Curling Meet  al the Ninth Shore Winter Club  and came away particularly  impressed by the number of  curlers using push brooms. I'm  told that a push broom gives  better support, has less friction  so it's easier to slide from the  hack, and will outlast several  corn brooms.  The Curling meet consisted  of a game, a social get together,  and an instruction period using  video cameras. The ice time,  instructors, and muhchies are  supplied by the host club.  Gibsons Winter Club juniors  will be hosting Powell River at  a similar meet here on  November 10.  Super Valu's First Invitational Spiel is going to happen  here on November 11 and 12.  Come to the rink for the fun  and make the visitors welcome.  There will be rinks from several  communities.  Don't forget, all those whose  fees are paid in full by October  31 will be in on the draw for a  hundred dollar prize.

In  summer the soldiers hunted  and skirmished, in the casual  manner of two great tribes  between whom desultory  warfare is a matter of course. In  winter they stiffened their  defences and completed their  pacification of the hostile tribes  which surrounded them. Many  of the officers and men took  -.concubines from among the  - native women. The camps  ' .^-swarmed with their half-breed  children. Desiring to learn the  5_.45.-am of civilized war, some of  -ia^'efhe tribesmen joined the ranks  3KNW the armies. As the years  -^-"passed, numbers of soldiers  adopted the warrior traditions  of these recruits and allowed  their faces and arms to be  decorated with fierce tattoos.  Officers and men alike  developed a taste for the  powerful grog the tribesmen  taught them to brew from the1  bitter herbs of the mountains,  and came to prefer/it to the  smooth wines of the cities  which were always in short  supply. The poets traded songs  with the rustic bards of the  mountains and a harsh  barbaric note enlivened their  once polished and elegant  strophes...  "In all, ten years passed away  before the generals Were visited  by delegations from the cities.  Once, they were told, the cities  had been rich and powerful,  able to resist even the great  powers whose trade route they  commanded. But ten years of  war, the closing of the pass and  the drying up of trade had  made them poor and the great  powers were growing  drastically impatient. Conferences were held and a peace  treaty was hastily agreed upon,  but the generals were told that  neither they nor their troops  would be returning home  immediately. The governments  of the two cities still did not  trust one another enough to  leave the pass unguarded. The  fortified camps would become  permanent garrison posts and  they, with their knowledge of  the terrain and tactics, were to  be congratulated on their  promotions to the posts of  Wardens of the Pass. As the  satisfied emmissaries departed  for the cities, the generals  retired to their quarters to weep  in private. They understood  that their bitter exile was only  beginning,.,  "Tense despair settled over  the camps like a shroud. The  soldiers drank openly and went  about fully armed, as though in  anticipation of battle. The  poets muffled their lyres. The  discord of a misplayed note or  the twang of a breaking string  might precipitate a massacre...  "Three days later, on a fog-  shrouded morning, the  generals of the two armies met  alone and in secret in the  middle of the pass. By the time  the mist had burned off they  had returned to their sullen and  restless troops. They ordered  their armies to prepare to  march. They commanded that  the forts and camps be put to  the torch. As the camps burst  into flame behind them, they  marched their cheering  soldiers, followed by a long  baggage train including their  native wives and children, back  toward the cities from which  they had set out so long ago. As  they passed through the  mountains they were joined by  curious groups of the tribesmen  with whom they had formed  alliances...  "When they reached the  plains, the armies had become  hordes. They ravaged the  countryside to feed themselves.  When they drew up within sight  of the great cities they had all  but forgotten, they were met by  hastily raised militia armies  composed of their own sons,  brothers, uncles, cousins and  friends. Riders approached  under flags of truce, bearing  proclamations which demanded that the troops return  to their posts in the mountains  and that the generals surrender  themselves. The generals  dropped the proclamations  into the dust beneath their  horses' hooves and rode on  toward the cities. Battle was  joined in which fathers slew  sons who had been children  when they went away to war;  brother butchered brother,  friend killed friend. Even the  Part II  poets threw away their lyres,  drew their ornamental daggers,  and cast themselves into the  bloody fray, raving incoherently...  "The men from the cities  fought desperately, but the  hordes' from the mountains  were made of men as lean and  irresistible as wolves. They  stormed the massive walls and  broke down the great gates.  The cities burst into flame  behind them as they swept  through the broad paved  streets. The shining domes and  towers blackened and  collapsed, like burning flowers,  toppling into the streets to  crush defender and attacker  alike. A hot poisonous rain of  precious stones clattered on the  pavements, scorching those  who tried to pick them up.  Gold foil peeled away from the  statues like seared skin. The  crystal fountains and bright  canals were choked with gore.  Men raped their own wives and  daughters and cut their throats  casually as they looted their  own burning houses. In the  twilight sky over the  mountains, some saw a great  pillar of smoke rising like a  horrid monument from the city  on the plains below...  "In the ashen light of  morning many of the tribesmen  who had joined or accompanied the armies fled, laden  with plunder, back toward  their homes in the mountains of  the gods. Some of the soldiers,  with their concubines and  children, began a degenerate  existence amid the smouldering  ruins of the cities. Many, with  the generals, marched on, away  from that desolation, coming in  time to the borders of other  states and nations, where they  lived outcast lives of nomadic  banditry and pillage, hunted  and. pursued into the waste  places of the world. Farthest of  all wandered the poets, who  travelled to the distant courts  of Princes, Kings and  Emperors, carrying this tale of  their sufferings and of the two  villages and the mountains of  the gods..."  There was silence in the vast  Audience Hall of the Emperor.  The Emperor had closed his  eyes and seemed to be asleep.  Not a courtier dared to cough.  At last the Emperor opened his  eyes and looked once more  upon the ragged poet.  "You shall be doubly  rewarded," he said, raising his  right hand.  The Imperial Treasurer  stepped forward. Light blazed  from the golden mask and the  great golden key upon his  breast.  "See that he is well paid," said  the Emperor.  Then the Emperor raised his  left hand. The Imperial  Executioner stepped from the  shadows. The blank iron mask  reflected no light at all.  "Cut out his tongue,"said the  Emperor.  Hockey league starts up  Coast News, October 30,1979  After two weeks of  organizational exhibition  games, it appears that the  fledgling Hockey League is  everything it was expected to  be. While some players  obviously prefer the slam-bang  style of hard hitting hockey, it  seems that the high scoring and  fast paced, non-hitting format  is agreeing with fans and  players alike. Games have been  competitive in most cases and  will certainly get better as  players become accustomed to  one another, and teams have  the opportunity to practice  together. The ex-juveniles have  added a great deal of speed and  enthusiasm to the League,  while the older players offer a  good balance and added  experience to the various  teams.  It appears that the League  will begin with five teams of  approximately 14 players per  team. However, should any  teams falter due to lack of  participation, then Ihe League  will adopt the original four  team concept. Certainly there  are plenty of available players  for the full five team loop, so it  is hoped the League will survive  the full season with all five  teams intact.  A most important concept of  the League is the sponsorship  of the five clubs; to date three of  the teams have been  sponsored...many players from  the "old" Roberts Creek team  have returned to play for "The  Creek" with the Elphinstone  Recreation Association and  Ernie Fossett sponsoring our  blue team. A young team made  up of primarily ex-juveniles will  be sponsored by Anderson  Reality; they will be the  "Anderson A's" and be wearing  the white jerseys. The core of  the old Wakefield team has  remained intact with some new  young faces from the juvenile  ranks; this team is sponsored  by Cliff Lindsay, and for this  Carefree gardening *���  year will be the "Cozy Court  Bruins" until the new Motor  Hotel becomes a reality. The  Bruins will be in the famous  Boston black. Gibsons is still  waiting confirmation from its  sponsor, so will be "just"  Gibsons, but will be visible this  season in Minnesota green  uniforms. The final team is also  still unsponsored and is  representative of the whole  Peninsula, but will begin the  season wearing Chicago red  uniforms. This team is  tentatively being sponsored by  Crown Zellerback and will be  the "Crowns" until confirmed.  So five teams begin a 24  game schedule, for four playoff spots...and should an  amalgamation take place, four  teams will battle for three playoff spots! Games can be seen  any Thursday evening  starting at 8:00 p.m. Saturdays  beginning at 7:00 p.m. and 9:00  p.m. and Sunday evening at  6:30 p.m. A silver collection  would be appreciated.

This is a particularly  important exhibit as it will, for  the first time in the Arts Centre,  give the Arts Council and the  public in general a view of  many of our artists work from  the Sunshine Coast.  Media included in our show  will be painting, drawing,  prints, photography, sculpture,  and multi-media.  As this article is being  written and read, we do not yet  know which artists will be  showing as they will be selected  on Saturday, November 3 by  the curator of the U.B.C.

The shorter  hours of daylight seem to slow  everything down, most  certainly including writers.  In the garden sweep all the  fallen leaves loosely over your  gardens clustering them in  bunches around roses and  specially favoured goodies as a  winter blanket.  Bulb forcing is fun for this  time of year. Take an attractive  large bowl or casserole dish and  stuff it full of all kinds of bulbs  in layers if you want with  dampened potting soil. Place in  a large brown grocery bag to  keep dark and leave in a cold  shed or garage for six to eight  weeks,; watering only  occasionally and lightly. When  the shoots are about an inch  high remove the bag and as  they turn green bring into a  warmer atmosphere and water  more frequently. Finally place  in full light and enjoy the  earliest of Spring blooms on  your coffee table in January  when you need them. 'Vj  Right now, in the thick of the  early Monsoon, kelp and  seaweed are coming up on the  beaches in great gobs. The time  to get it is at low tide just after a  storm while it is still clean and  pure and before it gets  cluttered up with too much  cedar bark. Bring it home in  boxes, garbage pails and bags.  Don't worry about the salt as  the rain will wash most of it  away. You can mince it up if  you have a mincer; you can  leave it on a compost heap or  toss it right on the garden as is.'  It is marvellous fertilizer and  many prairie people would give  their bicuspids for such a  bonanza as we take for granted.  If done now, this stuff will be all  nicely broken down by Spring  when it can be dug in. This  advice is for eager beavers and  for people who are fond of  Winter beaches in general.  If I see or can think of any  crackerjack gardening ideas  over the Winter I will write a  column or two but otherwise I  intend to assume the foetal  position in a corner somewhere  and devote my time to doing  interesting and creative things  with flat rocks and clay. There  is always the pitted remains of  the family silver to be polished  and who knows what goodies  can be found behind bureaus  and in packed closets.  885-9666  SWANSON'S  Ready-Mix Ltd.

Coast News, October 30,1979  On becoming a Rover  Ramblings of a Rover  by Dee Cee  To tell you the honest truth I  was glad when we cast oil the  mooring lines and got to hell  out of Port Said. Not only had  the trip to the House of All  Nations turned out to be a  fiasco but my shipmates in the  fo'c'sle ribbed me unmercifully  over my hasty departure from  Ihat den of iniquity. Worse,  Ihcy intimated that I was  miscast in my role as Saloon  Boy First Class, that I should  have taken a job as a cabin boy  as it was a well known fact,  according to ihem, that all thc  cabin stewards or "bedroom  boys" as they were called were  nothing but a bunch of  "queers". Looking back on it  now I have to admit that there  might have been some truth in  that assertion as I recall that  some of them were definitely  effeminate in their ways and  could have been members of  the lavender set or, as they  choose to call themselves  today, "gays". Be that as it may,  I resisted all efforts on my coworkers' part to get me to go  with them on a successive night  to another well known brothel,  the Sphinx, which was reputed  to have even more girls and a  better selection that the House  of All Nations. That  "exhibition" business had really  thrown me off as far as the  opposite sex was concerned  and it was quite some time  before I regained my sense of  perspective. The old biological  urge was definitely still there  but somehow I managed to  keep it under control.  We passed through the Suez  Canal without mishap and our  next stop was Port Sudan,  almost midway down the Red  Sea coast. Previous to our  arrival there had been some  trouble in the Sudan so, as it  came out later, we were ordered  to stand by till the arrival ofa  British warship. I guess it was  just a question of "showing the  flag" until such time as a ship  better equipped to handle such  affairs couid show up.  The harbour being very  shallow, we dropped anchor  about half a mile out. Strangely  enough, in spite of this  rumoured trouble, shore leave  was permissable, not only for  the passengers but for the crew  as well. So the following  afternoon I went ashore, along  with some of thc other stewards  and a few of the sailors, in a  ship's lifeboat to see the sights.  The town itself, at that time,  was quite some distance from  the docks and it was  blisteringly hot. I am sure it  must have been over 100  degrees F. in the shade, if one  could find any! My companions took off almosi  immediately, whether to find a  place to quaff some cold beer  or io look for females I am not  sure, but I chose to remain  behind and explore the  beaches. My main objective  was to collect some sea shells to  take home to my Mother and  sister and that certainly wasn't  a difficult task as they were  there in profusion, scattered  along the shoreline, some of the  most beautiful shells I had ever  seen and so unlike the cockles,  mussels and winkles of the  Kentish coast.  I was wearing only a cotton  shirt, white duck trousers, a  pair of light shoes (no socks),  and, of course, my cap for fear  of sunstroke, but soon the  perspiration was running off  me in rivulets. God was it ever  hot and the sea looked so cool  and inviting that as soon as I  got around a bend I decided to  go for a swim although I had no  swim trunks, just the cotton  shorts I was wearing. The sea  was as warm as milk but oh so  refreshing! No sooner was I out  and had gathered a few more  shells than I was back in again.  I was a good swimmer and, as I  have said before, in excellent  shape so I really enjoyed myself  swimming out quite some  distance from shore using the  breast stroke and then  practising my adaptation of the  Australian crawl on the return  to the beach. All in all I must  have been in about eight or ten  times.  Shore leave for the Steward's  Department was up at 4:00  p.m. so, with the exception of  two missing, we assembled on  the dock to await the arrival of  the lifeboat. Once more it had  been noticed that I had  absented myself from the  crowd so they, with quite a few  pints under their belts, started  on me again. They crudely and  jokingly asked me if I had  found a black boy to  accommodate me or whether I  had had a date with "Miss Five  Fingers". I kept my cool but  when they asked me point  blank where and how I had  spent the afternoon I just  simply, as I thought, said I had  been in swimming. If I had  dropped a hand grenade or a  high explosive into the boat it  could not have had more effect!  All banter ceased and they  looked at me with incredulous  amazement. "In swimming?  Good Lord Almighty, are you  plain off your rocker or has the  hot sun melted what was left of  your brains?" I must have been  dense not to sense right away  that something definitely was  wrong but it wasn't until the  Second Officer, who was in  charge of the lifeboat,  questioned me that I came to  realize that this was indeed a  serious business and not  something to be dismissed  lightly. According to him, and  also to my mates, the waters of  Port Sudan were the most  dangerous in the whole of the  Red Sea, either to swim in or  accidentally fall in, as they were  teeming with sharks and  hungry ones at that! They were,  according to all reports, so  numerous and bold that many  times in the past they had come  into quite shallow waters and  picked off some native woman  or girl who was in the act of  pounding clothes clean on the  rocks.  When we got back to the ship  1 hadn't even changed into my  working clothes before the  word got around and heads  Country Stars  judge the costumes and found it  a most difficult task. Square  dancing is fun. Join us.  Here's to happy dancing.  It's a question who's more delighted, the student or the teacher. This picture was taken  at Gibsons Pool during a session for Handicapped youngsters sponsored by the  Gibsons Lions Club.  were thrust curiously into our  quarters in the fo'c'sle to take a  look at that crazy, dimwitted  Saloon Boy who had gone  swimming in, of all places, the  waters of Port Sudan! Whether  it was my imagination or not I  thought I could detect, among  the passengers in the saloon  that night at dinner, a few  covert glances in my direction,  so apparently word had  reached them too of my  foolhardy act. It is said that  God looks after drunks and  fools���who knows, perhaps  there is a great deal of truth in  some of these old sayings,  I do know, however, that thc  fact of the shark danger  definitely registered on me, not  that night but the next when  once more we went ashore in  one of the ship's lifeboats. We  had no sooner left the ship and  were being rowed in the  direction of the shore when I,  seated in the stern, happened to  look over the side and there,  almost under the boat and  starkly phosphorescent in the  dark waters, were five sinister,  grey ghosts, eighteen to twenty  feet long, which followed us all  the way until we reached really  shallow water. They were there  waiting for us when we  returned around midnight and  they trailed us right up to the  gangway that was slung over  the side of the Norman Castle.  There were many Tramps  and Country Bumpkins  kicking up their heels in the  Roberts Creek Gymnasium on  Friday, October 26 as the  Country Stars Square Dance  Club had a Halloween "Hard  Times" Dance.  There were Skeletons and  Pumpkins, games and prizes,  and the ladies provided  delicious food which all went  into making this evening a  huge success.

George W. Inglis  ;. Sunshine Coast  1 United Churches  : f Prayer is becoming in scarce  'supply in an energy conscious,  /-���sophisticated, tongue-in-cheek  j; world.  ��j The old fashioned prayer  ^meeting, which used to be a  I weekly or twice-weekly event in  | every village and town church  'g across the nation, has become a  ' I' museum piece. In fact, so have  . many of the village and town  , churches, but the prayer  :   meetings vanished before the  steeples.  .:��    Those who remain in "old-  ;   fashioned" communities where  such prayer meetings are still  :   being   held   should   count  :., themselves    very   fortunate,  ��� indeed, and should hang on to  j   them   with   everything  they  possess. They are a way of  plugging in to the greatest  sources of energy and power in  the   world���the   energy  and  power which created the world,  and through  which "are all  things". (Rom. 11:36b).  '���r-   There was probably no time  jj in the history of the English  ,' speaking world when prayer  j was more needed than today���  'except for the days in 18th  f, century Great Britain when a  ji five-foot-two Anglican priest  ���'named John Wesley set the  ''oppressed,  malnourished,  l dejected and hopeless populace  . | on fire with the flame of prayer.  y He lit a flame that has never  I j fully been extinguished, by his  .' - example and teaching, and his  /' "societies", which have since  '. burgeoned into a powerful and  ;. useful   world   church,   were  ,., founded on prayer.  ' Jj    Wesley, riding on horseback,  '.",singlehandedly, established  j 3 these prayer societies all over  ���'England   and   Ireland,   and  '. infused thc dejected millions of  : ���' people with a new life and hope  | that may very well have been  ���i.the spiritual bond that kept the  island nations healthy enough  ;o  recover  from  a  malaise  hich was gripping the people  n a fever of hopelessness that  hey were trying unsuccessfully  io shed by cheap gin and beer.  Wesley  took the attitude,  ^vhich appears to be biblically  sound, that a successful prayer  |ifc   is   encouraged   and  trengthened  by  being right  ith God, and this entailed a  ifc of service to God, along  ith much prayer and worship.  (This  also  entailed  sobriety,  ince   he   maintained   it   is  impossible to worship God  sincerely and reverently when  the brain was addled with  strong drink. It also entailed  good living habits, since a  home or chapel prayer service  before work was an assurance  of a day that started a person  off right with the Lord.  Wesleyans were encouraged  to study scripture earnestly,  and to preface their personal  prayers with scripture readings,  as they did in their public  prayer meetings. They were  encouraged to focus on service  to others, and to upright living  in their prayers, asking for  guidance and strength to do  these things, in their prayers.  Their societies, under this  therapy of prayer���prayerful  life, and prayerful service���  flourished and the members  gained a confidence and  acceptance which had never  been possible to them before.  Drunken Cornish coal miners  became leading citizens of their  towns and villages, and the  same magical transition took  place wherever the Wesley  magic touched.  Looking back in retrospect,  it is only fair to admit that  prayer never had a better  theatre of operations. The  people had been oppressed,  starved, beaten and abused to  the point of no return���they  were so far down that anything  would have been an improvement!  Nevertheless, under Wesley's  guidance and teaching, the  prayer meetings became the  focal point of their lives, and  almost immediately they began  to pay off in a way that they  could relate to���with joy and  the confidence that comes in  having a sure and certain hope.  Even if it was a reformation  that was born out of despair, its  effect was magical and so  transforming that a member of  a Wesleyan society could very  soon be picked out by his or her  behavior, rooted in the power  of prayer.  Unfortunately, in today's  affluent society we do not have  that fine edge of despair that  was present during the .time  when Wesley's campaign for a  life of prayer was so successful.  We also have a brittle and  cynical resistance to supernatural events which makes it  extremely difficult for us to let  go our intellectual biases and  "take it to the Lord in prayer",  to quote an old favorite hymn.  We have watched a man step  on the moon, something that  would have been an incredible  dream in Wesley's time, and we  have filled the highways of  space with extra-terrestrial  meterological and communications vehicles that enable us  to peer down at this frail little  globe of ours and photograph  and record its every ecological  change.  Pathetically, however, the  young men and women who are  the leaders of tomorrow seem  to be increasingly skeptical  about a force for good which  can be summoned into being by  the simple device of prayer.  With all of these fantastic  technological advances which  have taken us from the model T  Ford to the miracles of  rocketry in three score years���  the span of one man's life, more  or less��� we have lost the most  precious asset to a community's life, the prayer meeting,  and even prayer itself.  In its place we have  meditation programs, Seren-  dipidity groups, Transactional  Analysis, contact sessions, and  many other ways of expanding  the consciousness, including  drugs and alcohol and other  chemical methods of getting  away from it all.  There is little doubt that  some of these programs or  devices do have a therapeutic  effect, but the long term effect  is to move the participant into a  greater self consciousness and a  lesser God consciousness.  There is only one way  advocated in scripture to  communicate with God, and  that is through prayer.  There was only one way that  our Lord Jesus, when he  walked this earth, kept in close  link with God, and that was  through prayer. He prayed  early in the morning, late at  night, and sometimes all night,  we are told; he prayed before  undertaking ventures, and after  he had worked mighty works  and healings in his Father's  name.  He prayed in love, in praise,  in humility and in hope, and he  told us that we should pray that  way too.  What a pity we have, many  of us, forgotten how to take the  full benefits from this most  precious giftl  Coast News, October 30,1979  11.

As an example of this, I got a  call from Mrs. Negroponte on  Gambier. She was visited by a  Hock of U.F.O.'s. From the  description she gave me it  appears that she had the  dubious pleasure of playing  host to a flock of immature  starlings in winter plumage.  I've included a picture of them  in their different outfits.  Dudley's Cat  A friend of Dudley Gerow  (the butcher at the ex Co-op),  asked if I could do a lost cat  announcement in this column.  Sure. When they were moving  the stuff out of the Co-op a few  weeks ago, Chubby, a small, all  black, female manx**--that's the  type without a tail���got into  the truck and got itself lost in  the Gibsons Bay area.  Apparently the poor wee thing  hasn't had an easy time of it.  The Gerows saw it and its  sibling being thrown out of a  car in front of their house.  Cubby survived, but the other  ended up wider than high. So if  you've seen it, or found it and  are wondering who it belongs  to, call Dudley at 886-9208.  Marsh Society meeting  The next Marsh Society  meeting will be held in the  music room at Chatelech  Junior High in Sechelt at 7:30  p.m. on Thursday, November  1. The scheduled speaker is  Rick McKelvey from' the  Canadian Wildlife Service. The  topic is going to be trumpeter  swans, so that should be of  interest to the musically  inclined.  The owling trip to the  Porpoise Bay Campsite didn't  have a very big turn out either  in people or owls���only one  call was answered, but there  were no sightings. It wasn't a  complete loss. Angus Creek  runs through the campsite and  the salmon were running up.  Odds'n ends  The most spectacular sight at  this time of year has to be the  salmon running up the creeks.  A few coho have made it up  Husdon Creek; there are some  fish below the fish ladder at  Wilson Creek; the dogs are in  Angus Creek of course, and I  went down to the Twin Creek  diversion today (Sunday) and  counted about ten fish battling  their way up.    ���  It's inspiring to watch them,  but remember not to bother  them. They've had a toygh  battle to get back to the creeks  they were born in, so give them  their day.  I haven't been in the Pender  area for a couple of weeks, so  I'm not sure what is happening  in the creeks there; if you have  any information on them, let  me know.  A couple of immature female  American wigeons were seen at  the Wilson Creek estuary so  you might keep your eyes open  if you are around there.  According to one informed  observer, we should be on the  lookout for flocks of varied  thrushes (swamp robins) now  that the snow is on the  mountain tops.  And now a passing word of  thanks to all the prehistoric  animals who gave up their lives  so that future generations  bould profit by it.

Adding ti  that was news that the Foothill!  consortium, who had propose  to build an alternate pipelim  through the Yukon, Britisl  Columbia and Alberta  withdrew their application.  Perhaps the biggest factor oi  the side of the environmental!:  dangerous tanker route is thi  lack of action on the part of th^��  Canadian federal government  There is no indication that thi  Clark government cares om  way or another whether thi  Alaska oil moves by thi  reasonably safe pipeline or ii  carried in tankers along thi  Coast.  Even officials of the U.Sj  energy department expressed"  surprise last week at the lack ofl  Canadian government profile;  on this issue.  They might have been more;  surprised���as indeed ever  resident of the British  Columbia Coast should be���to  find the Prime Minister himselfj  standing up in the House of]  Commons, in answer to  questions, saying he under-j  stood the Foothills application  was still active.  To boot, the conservatives!  proceeded to disallow ani  emergency debate proposed by]  New Democrat Jim Fulton off  Skeena on the whole question!  of safeguards for the British]  Columbia Coast in view of the*  increasing possibility that the!  tanker route will be]  established.
