In a related motion moved  by Director David Hunter  of Area F, it was moved and  passed that there was no justification for defence activity  to the Strait of Georgia. Hunter's motion refers to the fact  that the best route for underwater cable would go from  Reception Point near Halfmoon Bay to Nanoose Bay on  Vancouver Island. This route  is at present not available  because it lies across the  weapons-testing range in the  Strait of Georgia.  Regional Board Chairman  Ed Nicholson, a self-described  strong advocate of the Reception Point Route, has made the  Regional Board position clear  to a letter to the local newspapers this week. (See Page 3)  On June 25, the Sakinaw  Lake Steering Committee  wrote a letter to Honourable  A. McKinnon, Minister of  National Defence, urging  that the minister do everything within his power to  permit the power line to use  the Reception Point-Nanoose  Bay crossing.  Ivo Cargnelli, a spokesman  for the Sakinaw Lake Steering Committee, had earlier  made plain that his group was  most upset at the proposed  route. Cargnelli pointed out  that his group had been discussing the matter with Hydro  for two years and had earlier  been assured by Hydro that  the power line would to no  circumstances cross Sakinaw  Lake.  "That power line will be  700 feet wide," said Cargnelli, "and they are going to  an enormous economic bun- in no position to make such an  gle, and the gas line studies��� announcement.

That's all we ask. We  have never taken the position  that anybody on Vancouver  Island should freeze to the  dark."  The Pender Harbour Regional Director expressed  doubt    about    the    recent  to a publicity campaign by  Mr. Bonner," said Harrison, '  pointing to the fact that recent  press statements have contrib*  uted to no new information.  "Bonner's intent has been to  inflame public opinion in  favour of this line."  A 57% rejection of the Pulp  and Paper Industry contract  was tallied on July 13 from  Local 1119, Port Mellon Canadian Paperworkers Union.  A recommendation for acceptance from negotiators  Steve Holland, Dave Gant and  Don Pearsell, as reported in  the July 9 issue of The Coast  News, was reversed after a  local problem at MacKenzie  was not resolved, according to  negotiator Dave Gant.  A meeting of Local 1119 was  held in the Legion between  negotiators and members on  July 12.  "We told the members  about MacKenzie and left it  up to them to make up their  own minds. We recommended nothing," he said.  Cited as further reasons for  the rejection was the "narrowly defeated" cost of living  allowance by the caucus and  banking of overtime. Banking  of overtime will not come into  effect until January 1,1980.  "There will be a lot of hard  feelings for some time until  this takes effect. I would say  the way they were talking last  night there will be internal  problems," said Gant.  The deadline for balloting  from all eighteen locals is  midnight tonight. Results  should be known by Wednesday. The "crucial" locals  still to be tallied are Powell  River, Elk Falls, and Port  Alberni.  "If the package is accepted,  our local will accept it."  Internal problems as a result of the rejection could be a  refusal of workers to work  overtime and a lack of co-operation within the mill, according to Gant.  "The company has called  this the biggest offer ever���  we don't. They say it will cost  them $300 million for implementation of the contract over  the next two years. We  haven't any proof of it."  to 1977, under the Anti-  Inflation Board regulations,  management had to give proof  of costs.  'no'  Regarding the 50 per cent  increase to pensions, Gant  called it "a breakthrough".  Canadian Forest Products  (Canfor) have never given voluntary supplement to workers'  pensions. Canfor has now  agreed to a $50 increase to  the approximate $100 a month  currently given to those workers retired before 1975 still  living���a total of four retired  workers.  "It's not as much as we  want but we can look to a fight  another  day,"   said   Gant.  A meeting will be held next  week between local net  Edttoria  Who's in the cave?  'It's a time when we should be coming  Mt of our caves to see how best to cope  with a major world shift, not simply  Owning to the back wall and hiding in  ���> shadows."  'These eloquent words are the product  of Paddy Sherman, publisher of the Via.  r'ar Province, and appeared under  byline on the editorial page of last  Saturday's Province bearing the headline  "Out of the cave".  I What occasioned Mr. Sherman's reflections was the opposition on the Sunshine Coast to the construction of B.C.  Sdro's 500 kv power line across Sakinaw  .e. The cave dwellers he chastises are  us, fellow residents of the Sunshine  Coast. The Sherman piece follows an  editorial in the Friday edition of his paper  which bore the heading, "Bloody-mind-  edness in Sechelt".  The 'crisis' of power supply to Vancouver Island has obviously more recently come to Mr. Sherman's attention than  is the case locally. Here on the Coast in  meetings with B.C. Hydro going back a  couple of years, we have become well-  acquainted with Hydro's projection of tile  power needs of Vancouver Island and  a>ove all with their solution, the Cheek-  ejre Dunsmuir line1. In the meetings with  Hydro and in the preparation undertaken  far these meetings the so-called cave-  dwellers of the coast, amongst whom are  numbered  some  considerable  minds,  have come up with some questions that  Sherman might do well to consider.  First, let us dispose of the prime reason  for Mr. Sherman's somewhat hysterical  attention. Last week, Ivo Cargnelli of  Sakinaw Lake Property Owners was quot-  i saying in response to a provincial  �� banning further public meetings  discuss the power line that the public  would have its input if it was by way of  burying aa axe in Bob Bonner's desk or  thtoower line off the UU.  is no doubt that this was a burst  of emotional rhetoric and that Mr. Cargnelli hu no intention of taking an axe to  the chairman of B.C. Hydro or of blowing  up power lines.   We are, after aU, a  We have been subjected ?"!**���,^Jn "*  *-**��  ..... . * I nflcr    a liir irlma nt a **-rim�� wau. la ��� F*.u-  Coast. Our idea ofa crime wave is a few  extra break-ins by bored adolescents and  a few extra drunken drivers. It should be  further borne in mind the news that the  power line would cross Sakinaw and that  there would be no further discussion  came to Mr. Cargnelli after his group had  been told that there was no need for them  to appear at the last public meeting on  March 31 because all thought of crossing  Sakinaw Lake had been dropped.  So, for now, let's put Mr. Cargnelli's  unfortunate hyperbole behind us and  attempt to discuss, as Mr. Sherman did  tors and mill representatives  BUI Hughes, Jim Foglietto,  and Don Maclin to discuss  the 1979 Bull Session Agreement.  Items in the local agreement  still to be clarified between  workers and management  include a mill lunch bar, meal  tickets, fitness program, union  office faculties and other improvements.  The walkout staged on July  6 by approximately. 150 day  workers to protest of slow  negotiation talks 'ended on  July 9.  not, the power to Vancouver bland question to some depth.  There are three aspects to be considered. The first two are aesthetic and  environmental and it wu indeed these,  Mr. Sherman, that first caused a stir. A  giant power line crossing an unspoiled  seuide lake coupled with Hydro's unrepentant commitment to the use of herbicides to clear the right of way is a daunting prospect. Other routes were suggested to Hydro during the lut two years.  Bruce Woodsworth, who worked in  power line placements for B.C. Electric  for years, flew by helicopter over more  northerly routes that were both feasible  and far from people. At one meeting a  Hydro engineer, BUly Ellis, wu overheard by Woodsworth assuring a Pender  Harbour resident that representatives of  the area were satisfied that the northerly  routes were not feasible  Further. Hydro's preferred route  would go from Reception Point to Nanoose Bay. preferred because the ocean  bottom is absolutely perfect there for  the laying of underwater cable. The line  could be buried under Highway 101 and  invisible to all. Of course, we have a  sacred cow to that part of the Georgia  Strait in the form of a torpedo-testing  ground for the armed forces. And how  does Mr. Sherman feel about target  shooting to the middle of one of the best  recreational boating areas on the West  Cout?  Despite Hydro's protests about their  concern for aesthetic and environmental  concerns, they have in fact to typical  Hydro fuhion decided to bull the monstrous line through just where they  please. The public hearings at which the  concerns have been discussed have been  largely charade, what one speaker  referred to u Hydro's touring summer  stock theatre show.  It Is these aesthetic and environmental  concerns that Mr. Sherman ao airily dismisses, and why should he not? He  doesn't drink the water of Sakinaw Lake  and his television and radio reception wUl  be quite unblemished by this power line,  the health of his children unaffected.  It became apparent, however, to the  course of two yean' investigation that  there were'some very serious political  questions involved in the Cheekeye-  Dunsmuir power line, and tills is an area  in which Mr. Sherman, u publisher of  a large city newspaper, would be well  advised to investigate with less frothy,  righteous indignation and more hard  thought. The alternative is'to turn his  editorial page over entirely to the public  relations men hired by B.C. Hydro.  Let'sjustlistafewpointsofwhich Mr.  Sherman appears unaware.    First,  report by Helliwell and Cox urges that t!  utilization of hog fuel, a by-product ot  pulp mills, could go far towards solving  the Vancouver Island power needs���it  has been ignored by B.C. Hydro. Second, a report by economic consultant  Marvin Schafer, commissioned by the  Environment and Und Use Committee  to investigate the economic justification  for the power line, is reported lo have  found it to be a major economic blunder  with costs escalating upwards to $1  billion. This cannot be ascertained because the government will not release  the report and Environment Minister  Rafe Mair denies any knowledge of it  Third, from Hydro's natural gas division  word hu leaked that the power needs of  Vancouver Island could be adequately  and more economically met by piping  natural gu from the mainland.  Certainly it would appear that a com*  biliation of hog fuel and natural gas  would render the giant power line un  ,necessary.  ��� It is at this point, Mr. Sherman, that  some of the in-depth analysis of events  that you assured us we had been missing  when your paper recently reappeared  might have been of value. You see, these  power lines that are being rushed to the  rescue of Vancouver Island are built  at considerable extra cost to transmit  power in both directions and there is  a lurking suspicion locally that in the long  run the Cheekeye-Dunsmuir line is  designed to move power from atomic  power stations, dearly sought by both  Bob Bonner and Pat McGeer, but being  downplayed for political reasons at the  moment, to be built on Vancouver Island  and to be tied into the American power  grid.  In short, Mr. Sherman, we think that  there may be much more afoot in the  Cheekeye-Dunsmuir power line than  Hydro's propaganda campaign has led  the Wander* and your unsuspecting  self to believe. We think it possible that  Bob Bonner is the continental energy  man in this province and his designs  have little to do with the needs or wishes  of Vancouver Island or the power needs  of Canada.  These are big questions, Mr. Sherman,  and deserve some serious thought,  Hydro's answer to its huge debt is more  and more growth to stave off bank  ruptcy. They are locked, it is possible  into a kind of tunnel vision, and since  a tunnel is a man-made cave, we feel  justified to asking, "Who's in the cave?  From where we sit, it looks possible that  it might be B.C. Hydro, and its apol  ogists���and that includes you, Mr.  Sherman.  Sechelt Public Hearing  Standing room only  It was standing room only on July 11 to the Sechelt Senior  Citizens' Hall when approximately 130 people showed up to  participate in a public hearing on proposed rezoning and bylaw  amendments from the Sechelt VUlage Council.  AU speakers were limited to five minutes of comment until  all parties were through speaking on each issue.  "First of ail I would like to say to council that five bylaws at a  public hearing of this nature is unfair. I think we will be here  until tomorrow night at this time," said the first speaker of the  evening, Henry Hall.  Zoning amendment bylaw  number 146.6 regards the  rezoning of the Rockwood  Lodge property across from  Sechelt Elementary School  from public assembly to residential IV. The rezoning  would allow apartment construction on the property.  Purchase conditional on the  rezoning being accepted, Jad-  ran Construction would begin  construction of a 26-apartment  structure.  "We have received some  letters and correspondence on  this and these will be noted  in our deliberations," said  Alderman Morgan Thomson.  "My objection is to the traf  fic at the corner near the  school. I walk put there  almost daUy and I see many  children in danger and now  Mr. Butorac (President of Jad-  ran Construction) proposes to  have twenty-two cars coming  out of there," said Helen  Hawe.

Stories of  the call for investigation of the Sechelt  Council and the oppostition to the  Cheekye-Dunsmuir power line have been  featured un TV, on radio, and in the city  dailies. Stinging editorial rebukes from  the editorial desk of the Province in particular have been showered upon our  heads, unwonted, unwanted, and unwarranted.  We would suggest that in both issues  there is evidence of a malaise of the  democratic process, to the one case because arbitrary and growingly authoritarian powers are sweeping aside the wUI of  thc people with a dangerous and highhanded arrogance. In the other case,  because elected representatives have  apparently allowed themselves to be  stampeded out of their composure into  decisions against the will of many of the  people.  In the first case, the case of the power  line, an unfortunate remark made in  frustration and exasperation has been  used to label the people of this area as  unenlightened and selfish cavedwellers  unconcerned with the needs of their  fellows elsewhere. Ivo Cargnelli's  remark about burying an axe in Bob  Bonner's desk and blowing the power line  off thc hill is the understandable outburst  of a reasonable man who has employed  reason and found himself toyed with by  an authority that made a pretense of  consulting.  The fact of the matter is that far from  being mindless selfishness, much of the  opposition raised to the Cheekye-Dunsmuir power line was of an extremely high  calibre. Many of the questions being  asked in the Madeira Park Community  Hall in 1978 and again in 1979 were very  searching questions indeed. Invariably  they were treated with disdain. The attitude of the B.C. Hydro representatives  throughout was one of ill-concealed and  impatient arrogance. "We are the experts. You must do as we say," seemed  to bc the approach.  Lockstead at work  Spare a thought for Don Lockstead  over in Victoria. Don's certainly earning  his monev as representative of the Sunshine Coast these days.  As if he didn't have enough on his  plate representing the people of Pender  Harbour on the issue of the Cheekye  Dunsmuir line���and we should bear in  mind that the people of Vancouver Island  arc also represented by NDP members  and Don is in no easy political position-  he is now i'lso immersed in the question  of the investigation of the Sechelt Council I It's the kind of configuration of  events that ages an MLA rapidly.  Let's hope for as peaceful and as  positive a resolution to the presenta difficulties as possible. In the meantime,  hang in there, Don.  . .from the files of Coast News  This is undemocratiac and dangerous.  It seems to be highly debatable as to  who controls whom between the provincial government and B.C. Hydro and  is not a situation that a thoughtful person  can contemplate with ease.  to the case of the activities of the Sechelt CouncU, it appears at leut as if  the councU has allowed itself to be rushed  off its collective feet with the pace of  change attendant upon the completion of  the sewer system. When an alderman is  moved to observe at a public meeting that  he hoped that someone could solve the  problems because obviously the council  can't, the people being represented  must feel uneasy.  Apart from allowing itself to be rushed,  the CouncU has allowed itself a dangerous rationalization. At the lut two public  meetings they have decided that because  there were ninety at one meeting and one  hundred and thirty at the other, that  everyone who wasn't there wu satisfied. The Sechelt CouncU's faUure to  heed the danger signs inherent in irate  taxpayers it has brought upon itself the  opprobium of possible investigation by  a senior government���and this for the  second time in three years.  It would seem apparent that the Sechelt CouncU needs to take a deep breath  and decide what it really is about before  proceeding much further. Are they going  to be guided by their Vicinity Plan, or are  they going to scrap it? It is in all likelihood an imperfect document but it would  seem preferable to piecemeal and hasty  improvisation to that it wu at leut conceived in relative tranquility.  There may be a lesson in both instances and that lesson is that in a democracy  the people must be heeded. They are;  often ill-informed and they are often stubborn and misguided. Nobody has ever  said thai the democratic exercise is perfect, but as Winston Churchill observed,  it is in the long run simply preferable to  all others. At the present time, it would  appear to be in a rather delicate state of  health.  m i  i  FIVE YEARS AGO  The local school board, after a series of delays occasioned by a delay in  receiving approval from the Department of Education in Victoria, signs  Ihe contract for the rebuilding of  Elphinstone Secondary School.

They gathered amenities in the home they hoped would be a  permanent place. The oldest children walked the North Road route to  the one-room school that had been built at Gibson's Landing in 1891.  By 1911, a road ran along the West Howe Sound waterfront, and a  second structure with two classrooms had been built on the site of the  first. But a trip to school remained a three-mile hike, much of It  uphill. When the large home was destroyed by fire, the family lost all  their worldly goods, and were obliged to begin anew.

Peterson  Slings & Arrows >^  ������������ fc  George Matthews  Dances in Roberts Creek I  In the last ten years I've lost  count of the number of good  dances I have attended in the  Roberts Creek Community  Hall.  Last weekend it was a new  local group called the Rainbow  Riders providing the music for  the Roberts Creek Daze dance  and I found myself for some  reasons cavorting in soiflfc-  thing of a time warp of all tne  dances I had been to in that  venerable old hall.  For me the vintage time in  the old hall was around 1972  when the remarkable local  group called Home Brew were  in the full flush of their brief  togetherness. Local fixture  Ken Dalgleish was on the keyboards; blonde and good-  looking Pat Murphy was showing promise of being another  Gene Krupa on drums;  skeletal Jesse whose lut  name escapes played guitar  and contributed the odd  country-oriented song; Dave  Virella was the hard rock  belter on vocals; and the band  included two female vocalists,  Hahle Gerow and Lainie, a  rail-thin and wonderfully  talented coloured lady; Steve  Hodgson played mouth organ and flute and the whole  compendium wu a miraculous  blending of high energy, great  talent and a fine diversity of  styles and tastes that somehow became a truly remarkable dance band.  In 1972, summer thereof,  I was in a state of considerable  emotional disrepair, having  brought myself to that condition by an unremitting program of several months of  severe self-abuse and the personal agonies of an unrequited  love, I never missed a dance,  therapeutically driving the  twin poisons of alcohol and  unhappiness from my body to  the music of Home Brew, and  I suppose I remember the  group fondly for these reasons.  It was, nonetheless, a remarkable band, and for me it  was the first time a band had  delighted me in which every  member was a personal  friend.  I can remember one dishevelled night when for some  reason the right lens of my  eye-glasses kept popping out  and onto the dance floor, to  a haze of stomping feet I  narrowly rescued it a score of  times, sometimes right from  beneath the descending heel.  On another occasion as the  last man from the hall I found  myself out of gas and walked  to the dark rain of January to  Gibsons.  Saturday night the faces  were mostly new though some  veterans of the years were  still boogying in fine style,  their faces adding to my  sense of time warp. The  dance wu still comfortable  and casual though not as casual u once was the case.  There were no visiting dogs  that I saw and no children  being whirled happily around  the floor in the arms of adults  or aping their elders in corners  of their own. Signs of change.  It was a good happy dance,  nonetheless, and though  my stay was briefer than heretofore, largely because Sunday is no longer recuperation  day but production day at the  newspaper, I enjoyed the  dance.  to what I think was the  second-last set of the evening  Steve Hodgson and his mouth  organ appeared on stage and  for a moment completed the  time warp. Then it was back  to the present with a paper to  publish and it was time to  leave. Another dance in the  old Creek Hall.   My career as a photographer did not precede my  emergence on the staff of this  newspaper.    I am only just  beginning to live comfortably  with cameras, having manfully avoided all contact with  them until the fateful year of  1976 which saw me undertake the new profession of  journalism.  I have reached the stage  where I no longer feel self-  conscious with the ever-present camera. I no longer leave  it behind, seldom produce  rolls of blank films of what  might have been masterpieces, and occasionally even  manage to get a picture which  is timely, in focus, and worth  developing.  Still, my record is largely  one of near-misses. I am to  photography what the beginning angler is to fishing. I  can wax eloquent about the  one I didn't catch.  Last week 1 added another  to my lengthy list and all I can  do is to take recourse in  words. It was definitely a  scene worthy of being recorded. I was driving to Madeira  Park in the Coast News truck,  came round a corner where  the road construction is taking  place and there was a young  Please turn to page three  The Tunnel  y When we were boys, the tunnel was a game  S we made up, putting our ears to the tracks  S and flipping pennies until a train came.

It was late at night  after a tiring day and I had  been reading and dozing  while tuned into 103.5 megahertz on my FM tuner. All  of a sudden a faint voice said,  "Mayday, mayday, this is  Skylab, do you copy?" After  a pause of about thirty seconds, the voice repeated,  "Mayday, mayday, this is  Skylab. If you copy, push the  power-on button on your onboard tape deck and respond."  Well, you can imagine how  I felt. I got up, went into the  bathroom, looked in the mirror and splashed a lot of cold  water on my face. When I  returned to the living room I  was again greeted by the  faint, mechanical voice,  "Mayday, mayday. This is  Skylab. If you copy, push the  power-on button on your onboard tape deck and respond.  Over."  Now this is where it gets  a little embarassing. I closed  all the curtains in the living  room, looked around to make  sure no one was peeking, and  went over to the tape deck and  pushed the power-on button  on the tape deck. Taking a  deep breath, I said, "Uh,  hello there, uh Skylab, this is,  uh, George. Over." I released the button and held my  breath. "George, this is  Skylab. I can barely copy your  signal. Tell me your location.  Over." I pushed the button  again, said "Hi there, I'm,  uh, in my living room, over."  "George, get serious. I  need your geographic location, astrophysically speaking.  Over."  "I'm, uh, in Victoria, Skylab, in British Columbia...  Canada....Do you know where  that is, Skylab?"  "Don't be an idiot, George.  Listen to me; I'm circling the  earth and am fading from your  signal. 1 will be within range  at 04:25 hours. I will contact  you at that time. Do you copy?  Over."  "Well, uh, it's kind of late  here, Skylab. I've got to get  up and go to work in the morning, over."  "George. Do you mind?  This is a matter of life and  death. Be there when I...."  At this point the faint voice  trailed away into a hue of  static.  You don't believe it, right?  Well, I told you. But, generous soul that I am, I stayed  awake, and just like the voice  had promised, at twenty-five  past four, I again heard the  signal. Skylab and I talked together three different times  that night, for about twenty  minutes each time, and very  sad and poignant conversations they were.  After a few minutes of polite  banter about the weather and '  so on, the voice, sensing it  could trust me, I suppose, told *  me his real name was Weston '  House and that I should call  him Wes. Wes was really the '  Skylab   computer,   he   ex-'  plained.  Wes had called be-'  cause  he  was  feeling  de- *  pressed and needed to talk to  someone.    He believed his '  boss back at NASA was not  really being honest with him i  about what was going to hap- ���  pen to him.  He had learned -  about his impending plunge to  earth not from his boss or his -  friends but had happened to  hear   about   it   accidentally'  while   listening   to   Walter'  Cronkite on the six o'clock ���  I told him I was sorry about ���  what was going to happen and -  tried to reassure him that peo- -  pie didn't really blame him for  the danger he was imposing. ���  Naturally, I asked him when ���  he was going to come down. '  He said that the best he could ���  figure was sometime in the  next ten days or so, explaining  that everytime Skylab bumped ���  into a piece of the earth's atmosphere   it   slowed   down i  more and more. i  I, of course, asked him if  he could say where he would i  come down. He told me that  he had given up on making  predictions and that if he had <  been able to predict more accurately  he  wouldn't   have '  been in this mess in the first '  place.  i  On his next circuit, I told!  him that we people down on'  earth were a little concerned  that there might be some ra-'  dioactive material on board.,  He replied that even though:  he was somewhat  annoyed,  at his boss, he still felt enough  loyalty not to give away any  secrets.   But he added that  since I had been so nice to him'  he would simply say that he  still had lots of energy and l'  could draw my own conclusions.  On his final pass, I just let.']  Wes ramble on about his]  friends and all the things he'd \  seen and done and how he'  wished he could have a chance  to keep on working. I didn't-  interrupt him other than to'  offer my sympathy and under-.?  standing from time to time. 3  He wu close to tears when it J  came time for him to say good-*'  bye. He allowed as how hej  felt a lot better having had*,  someone to talk to and signed'  off for good with a simple'  "See you around, Good bud-**  dy." i  I said, "That's a big ten-,  four, Wes." Then I turned'  off the radio and went to bed. V"  ���BSS  Minaenaai  MM  MMM|  Cn-IST /"BUS.  So this is what it's like outside the cave.,  Coast News, July 17,1979  Chairman makee Regional Board's position plain  Editor:  The Board of Directors  of the Sunshine Coast Regional District wish to express  their concern over some of  the statements reported  recently by the media to reference to the security of the proposed Cheekye-Dunsmuir 500  kv transmission line.  Under no circumstances  whatsoever would the Regional Board encourage, support,  or condone any action token  which might result to the  damage or destruction of public property.  We believe that any suggestions that such action  might be taken were made u  a result of the anger and frustration felt by many of the  residents of the Sunshine  Coast after our repeated  failure to obtain clear evidence  of the economic necessity  for this power line.  The official policy of the  Sunshine Coast Regional District, adopted unanimously  on July 13, is as follows:  1. We urge the provincial  government, as requested by  our MLA Don Lockstead,  immediately table in the  House all documents relevant  to the Cheekye-Dunsmuir line,  including the Shaeffer memorandum. A delegation from  the Sunshine Coast wUI travel  to Victoria next week to  support that request.  2. We are deeply concerned over the effects that  the actual construction of  the line across the Peninsula  wUI have on both the environment and the economy of the  Sunshine Coast. The presently proposed route for the line  would take it through an area  not only important to the residents u a base for recreation  industry but is also vital to  them as a source of drinking  water.  3. Although we are sympathetic with the concerns  of the residents and local governments of Vancouver Island  over the spectre of "jobless,  shivering in the dark", we do  not believe that they are in  possession of all the facts on  this matter.  4. Nevertheless, if it  was clearly and conclusively  demonstrated that the need  for the Cheekye-Dunsmuir  line exists, the Board would  continue to advocate the adoption of the Reception Point-  Nanoose Bay route as the most  logical choice in terms of economics and ecology.  To this end, the Board is  writing to the Premier and  minister of National Defence  requesting them to come to an  agreement which would allow  B.C. Hydro to construct the  power line through the naval  testing grounds if the power  need is justified. This would  demonstrate to the people of  Some educational opinion  Editor:  Your editorial on schools  was crystal clear. What wUI  be done, then? Clearly no  change can be made whUe  school is in session. Once the  wheels are to motion, classes  and teachers assigned, day  will follow day in monotonous  succession as before. If a  change is to be made it must  be made during the summer  holiday. The schools should  not be allowed to re-open and  carry on to the same fashion as  before. Let me refer to Director Lee's quotation to The  Press of July 10, page 4, column 6, line 60. "AU that ia  needed for the triumph of evU,  is for good people to remain silent long enough."  Your foUow-up editorial, if it  means what I think it may,  provides the absolute foundation for any attempt to solve  the "schools" problem.  Is "that dreadful apple"  knowledge itself? The old  Book says "the knowledge of  good and evil". Is it an intentional mistranslation?  Over the centuries the  "thirst for knowledge" is one  that hu parched the throats of  men. Strangely enough it hu  not noticeably affected women. I am almost sure that  God is female. I am not so  sure that the will to know and  to understand is sinful.  to conclusion, some sort of  "middle path" must surely be  the one to choose for the proper nurture and growth of our  children. Let me delineate for  the sake of curiosity the two  extremes.  Imagine the first extreme  wherein a member of the  R.C.M.P. escorts each child to  irons from its home to an assigned seat in the classroom  where It is chained securely in such a way that it can  face front only. The mouth is  plugged so the chUd can speak  only when required to do so by  the teacher, who has a set of  buttons and can administer a  shock if the chUd does not respond suitably and within a  certain length of time. This  method need not be enlarged  upon u one can easUy imagine the ringing of bells, shifting from room to room, problems attendant upon bathroom  going, smells of sickness, alienation from parents, etc.  The other extreme features  a situation where all the parents, maybe even all the adults, take off for parts unknown such u Las Vegu,  Hawaii, Shoal Lookout, etc.,  and leave the children entirely  to their own devices. For the  most part this would entail  entrusting houses, cars, personal   effects,   indeed   the  this province to general and  the residents of the Sunshine  Coast in particular that tourists are more important than  torpedoes.  Ed Nicholson,  Chairman,  Sunshine Cout  Rgional District  whole industrial complex to  the hands of the children.  The answer, I say, lies  smack in the middle of the  two. At the risk of seeming to  influence the decision, let me  suggest that the present system is too near the first extreme.  Yours gratefully,  Arthur Shaw  P.S. Ret George Matthews,  Cout. News, July 10, column  the lut, line 10 from bottom,  "venom...that buUds up...after dealing...with children".  Why kid ourselves? No matter  how often they protest otherwise, teachers don't like  school any more than the kids  do. In general, men are less  suited to it than women, but  women are not what they  could be to this male dominated or patriarchal system.  For Chicken Little  Editor:  Our esteemed North American society appears to be  breaking apart at the seams-  energy crisis, street violence,  family break-up, and an imperfect educational system are  the symptoms of its demise.  Even the sky (Lab) is falling  and we have our own Chicken  Little���editorializing for the  Cout Snooze.  Schools, and the society  which they reflect, have in  this turbulent setting failed  some. But those faUures are  vastly outnumbered by successful, stimulating, and inquisitive young adults graduating from our schools every  year.  It is tempting to look at only  the failures of an imperfect  school system. It is always the  euier path to criticize rather  than construct (for fear of  being labelled an innovator).  In fact, some teachers so overwhelmed at these challenges  and responsibilities gave up  and left [sic].  When those ex-teachers  begin to rant about an imperfect system from which they  have fled, then there can be  only one response���that response which was given to  Chicken Little.

A living had to be made. Bus  quit school at fourteen and  took a business-course at  Sprott-Shaw. His parents  couldn't afford to pay the tuition-fees so Bus worked his  way through by running-elevator and doing other janitorial chores. Upon graduating,  he took a job with the Massey-  Harris Farm Implement Co.  Art took a back-seat to athletics during this period. "All  through my teens, I did a lot  of boxing; then weight-lifting  and wrestling. For a while I  even considered a career in  pro-wrestling, encouraged by  the late, great, middleweight  champion, Jack McLaughlin.  But Jack got a chance to go on  a barnstorming-tour of Australia and nothing came of it.  When the Depression hit in  1929,1 lost my job with Mas-  ley Harris. There wasn't  much Work around of any kind  and I ended-up in the woods,  wrestling logs."  Bus was to wrestle logs for  a long time. He seemed to  be dialling further and further away from any chance of  realizing his early ambitions.  "Once I got working in the  camps, I did very little artwork  beyond drawing the odd  picture for some of the guys."  Bus's initial stint involved cutting cordwood for the princely  sum of $2.00 per week plus  two meals a day. He soon got  fed-up with this starvation labour and graduated to the regular logging camps which paid  somewhat better. Working  camps from Howe Sound to  the Fraser Valley, Bus did a  bit of everything but mostly  hand-falling and bucking timber. He preferred to stay with  the   small,   gyppo   outfits.  Towards the end of the Depression, Bus met and married his wife, Margaret. The  union would produce two  sons, Bert, now an R.C.M.P.  sergeant, and Steve, a marine-  biologist,  of whom Bus  is  Pages  from a Life-Log  Peter Trower  undisguisedly proud. He went  to work with his brother-in-  law, logging-ofT small patches  of timber around Pitt River.  In 1939, he signed-on with a  man called Fletcher who had  started logging on Burke  Mountain near Port Coquitlam. He carries a chilling  memory from his days at Fletcher's camp.  "Jack was his name and  he'd only been at the outfit  a short time. Previously, he'd  been working for a gyppo  layout further up the valley  that was notorious for paying  real Chinaman's wages. I  remember asking Jack as  we hiked into the setting that  morning, how he liked working at a decent camp. "It's  sure great," he smiled.  "Hell, with this extra money  I'm making, I'll be able to get  ahead."  "When Jack came, we were  just getting ready to move in  and colddeck a setting of big  fir and cedar on a very steep  sidehill above the Coquitlam  River. We moved the machine  in and got the spar-tree  rigged. The ground was so  steep we had to build a crip  so the donkey-engine would  sit more-or-less level on the  sidehill. This involved lashing  a big cedar log crossways on  the hill to a large stump and  pulling two smaller logs in  behind it. We yarded the donkey up on to this rough platform, lashed the two smaller  logs to the runner and tied the  machine back to another  stump.  "We started to log on fair-  lead, straight downhill from  the donkey. The sidehill was  steep-enough around the spar  but just beyond the guylines  on the lower side, it really  got hairy���practically straight  up-and-down, I was chasing  and had been going outside  the guylines to fight the con-  stant hang-ups as it sawed the  hooker having to climb that  mankiller of a hill. The morning was cold and frosty. The  whistle-punk had a bark-fire  going beside a guyline-stump  on the lower side of the spar  and had taken his caulk-  boots off, the better to toast  his toes. I was shooting the  bull with him and watching a  huge fir-log wind agonizingly  up out of that suicide-hole. It  was a damn tough pull and I  heard Jack lug her down into  the oil-can. That bloody log  didn't budge an inch. Hooked  up and it was like watching a  movie in slow-motion. The  donkey had broken its tie-up  line and was riding forward on  the crib. It teetered precariously for a moment, then toppled over the side of the big  cedar. Grinding and crashing,  it tumbled awkwardly down  the hill and slammed to a  stop about a hundred feet  below. I hollered down to the  rigging-crew. The whistle-  wire had broken and there was  no way to blow the accident  signal.  "Then I hustled up the hill.  I'd seen a little smoke rising  from the runaway donkey and  was afraid of fire. The machine carried several oil-drums  lashed to the back and the  bung was always out of one of  them where the feedline entered. There must be fuel  spilled about. I thought Jack  must be under the machine  but there was no sign of him.  I scrambled on up to the crib  and found his cap in front of  the big cedar. Against the  topside of the log was poor  Jack, just sitting there as  though he were eating his  lunch. But he wouldn't be  eating lunch or anything else  again. He must have frozen at  the controls. When he saw  the machine was going oyer,  I suppose he jumped off, forgetting about the two smaller  logs cabled to the runner.  They had caught Jack against  the cedar and crushed his  head like an egg. It was the  most horrible sight I have ever  seen!  "I headed on up to the  trackside and asked one of the  crew to notify the Provincial  Police at Port Coquitlam. Roy,  the trackside hooker, said he'd  go back below with me. The  headloader, Art by name,  looked squeamish and said he  didn't figure he could stomach  it. I told him not to bother as it  sure as hell wasn't pretty and  there were enough of us down  there to pack poor Jack in.  "Then we were back down the  hill, standing around the  corpse, nobody saying much;  all of us feeling a bit queasy  with the apparent exception of  Roy, the trackside hooker. He  went over to the body and  leaned down to take a closer  look. 'Wonder what scooped  out his head like that?' he  said lightly. It didn't seem to  faze him at all but the rest of  us were a bit taken aback by  his casual manner.  "Art, the headloader came  down the hill. I guess curiosity had overcome his faintheartedness. We hadn't  moved Jack as yet and how  Art didn't see him, I'll never  know. He moved up close to  the body and said, 'Where the  hell is he?' Before anyone  else could answer, Roy remarked, 'Your're goddam  near standing on him, Art.  Look outl If he moves, grab  him!'  "Art took one look, turned  several shades of green and  hjghtailed it back for the track-  side tree like a bear running  from a bee-swarm. Although  it sounded pretty callous, I  don't think Roy meant it quite  that way. He was a rough,  tough guy on the job but off  work, he could be quite polite  and gentlemanly. I pulled-rig-  ing for him both before and after the accident. He tried to  ride me a bit at first but I  stood up to him. Once he realized I wasn't about to swallow  any guff, we got along fine."

Well D$J, ui /CIA's fhaajkt fh.i if  jg��t  iart of  ���������  Local entertainment scene  Quality varies  By Allan J.Crane  A number of people have  taken issue with my favourable review of Hans Meier,  who entertained at the Cedars  Pub for two weeks ending July  7. I referred to "a rare gift for  establishing a fine rapport  with his audience". From  where I was sitting, this is  exactly what he did.  I did not maintain that he  had a great voice or anything  of that nature, but he had a  significant portion of the clientele enjoying his songs, particularly the smutty ones, and  many joining in. One might  define a good entertainer,  particularly in a pub situation, as one who engages the  attention of a goodly proportion of the audience, and this  Hans certainly did with significantly greater success  than did Mark and Michael,  piano and guitar, who played  at the Cedars last week.  I heard this duo twice. The  lack of cohesion between the  pianist (Mark) and the guitarist (Michael) could be attributed to the fact that they have  been playing together for only  two weeks, for I noted a greater empathy between the two  musicians at the end of the  week. Individually, they were  good enough musicians, and  Mark played both electric and  accoustic piano simultaneously and skillfully. The attention  of few of the pub's patrons,  however, was engaged.  The Coast News was unable  to contact a most interesting  duo, CHILDGROVE, which is  booked to play at the Cedars  from Tuesday, July 17 until  Saturday, July 21. The duo,  which comes from Victoria,  appears to have a great variety of music to offer from  Renaissance   and    Baroque  music to Contemporary folk  and original music with traditional jigs, reels, and ballads  added for good measure.  Apart from small percussion  instruments, I saw what appeared to be a zither and a  lute along with guitar, sax-  phone and clarinet in the  rather indistinct picture which  the newspaper received.  At the Wakefield Inn, John  Duffy continued to entertain,  while there was disco music at  the Peninsula Hotel. I did not  hear the disco music as it  seemed very limited to me  when I went to discos in Maz-  atlan a couple of years ago,  but it is certainly popular  with a fairly large segment of  the population. The disco  classes which were given in  Sechelt and Gibsons earlier  this year were well attended.  Rainbow Riders, who  played for the Roberts Creek  Daze dance last Saturday  have obviously gained from  their experiences, for they  have a much better sound now  than when they last played at  the Roberts Creek Hall a few  months ago. Their selections  were well varied and included  the reggae song, "You Can  Get It If You Really Want It".  This comes from a film, The  Harder They Come. The Rainbow Riders' performance  might not have been in the  great tradition of Jimmy  Cliff, but it was certainly a  creditable performance.  The "boogies" at the  Roberts Creek Hall have  sometimes been enjoyed in  spite of, rather than because  of, the many groups which  have played there. The Daze  dance was not such an occasion, and the Rainbow Riders'  performances were greatly  appreciated, and rightly so.  General Notes: Mars, planet  of action, opposes Neptune,  planet of confusion, warning  us to double-check plans before starting any new venture.  Trickery and deception are  in the air.  Mercury turns retrograde  indicating delays in all communication matters. Getting  the message across will require more effort during the  next few weeks. Expect mail,  rail, and bus strikes.  ARIES (March 21-April 19)  Short-distance communications become confusing and  irritating. Argument during  short trip may force you to  turn back. Letters and phone  calls may be insulting. Advice  is to postpone inquiries till  next week. Brother, sister, or  neighbour may announce impractical scheme. Refuse to  sign important papers. Drive  carefully on Friday. Hitchhikers beware.  TAURUS (April 20-May 20)  Accent is on muddled financial conditions. Tendency is  to spend without thinking.  Check small print, guarantees before purchase of major  item. Say "no" to smooth-  talking salesperson. Don't be  fooled by "hard-luck" story.  Hold on to cash next Friday.  Rental or real-estate procedures now require more patience.  GEMINI (May 21-June 21)  Others find you impulsive,  over-idealistic, hopelessly  confused, and in need of guidance. Advice is to put aside  recently started project until  next week when clearer  conditions return. Local travel  faces slow-downs. Absent-  mindedness loses wallets,  purses, keys and tickets. June  9th birthdays could be making  a silly mistake.  CANCER (June 22-July 22)  Looks like there's something weird going on behind-  the-scenes. Spotlight is on  deception, secret manoevres,  and cover-ups. Have nothing  to do with gossip, intrigue or  busy-bodies. Beware flatterers. Be honest and act alone.  Say "no" to drugs or booze on  Friday. Guard financial papers against loss or theft during the next few weeks.  LEO (July 23.Ang.22)  Long-range plans, hopes  and wishes now become too  ambitious and impractical.  Tendency is to forge ahead  with hazy schemes and projects. Advice is to slow down,  count your cash and realize  limits. Friend or acquaintance  may become loud-mouthed  and uncooperative Friday  night. Rushing around without itinerary gets you nowhere  for the next few weeks.  VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)  Your honour, position or  achievements may be attacked  from hidden sources. Looks  like someone out there is  determined to undermine  your local reputation. Your  opposition could be exposed  Friday night. Remember to  act and speak with dignity.  Meanwhile, small personal  items may be lost in secluded  places.  LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23)  Accent is on religion and  personal beliefs. Tendency is  to defend vigorously life  philosophy and conviotans.  However, try not to bore companions with so-called "facts"  or "proof'. Long-distance  travel, affairs and events hint  of muddled arrangements.  Friend or acquaintance may  become elusive during the  next few weeks.  SCORPIO (Oct, 24-Nov. 22)  The financial situation of  someone close to you looks  confusing. Try to persuade  that person to quit impractical venture or "get-rich-  quick" schemes. Meanwhile,  avoid bankets or loan sharks.  Resist urge to borrow equipment. Argument Friday night  may be linked to shared expenses. Correspondence  related to job or career faces  delays.  SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-  Dec. 21)  Marriages, partnerships,  and commitments are subject  to hasty actions and  misunderstandings. Close  associate seems mesmerized by unrealistic expectations. Confrontation next  Friday should clear the air and  bring loved-one down to earth.  Long-distance communications slow down. December  11th birthdays should control  temper and be more practical.  CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-  Jan. 19)  Accent is on confusing employment and health matters.  Co-workers may find your  present ideas impractical and  too idealistic. Current methods and routines will be discussed and revised on Friday.  Any health upset may be lined  to arms, chest, or lungs. Paperwork related to shared  finances is now subject to  hold-ups.  AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)  Social life, pleasures, and  pastimes bring muddle and  confusion. Beware mysterious seducer. Love affair  starting now will end in tears.  Men should avoid loud, domineering women. Gambling  or speculation is money down  the drain. Say "no" to drugs  and booze next Friday. Communication with steady partner needs greater understanding soon.  PISCES (Feb. 19-Mar. 20)  Where you live is scene of  hodge-podge and disorder.  Advice is to put aside domestic project until plans have  been revised. Stall rental or  real-estate transaction until  next week, Household member may object to re-arrangements next Friday. Local trips  to social functions face snags  soon.

One  book that has all the ingredients, however, is Norton  Juster's The Phantom Toll-  booth (Random House, New  York, 1972). The story concerns the adventures of a boy  named Milo who "didn't  know what to do with himself  ���not just sometimes, but always". "Wherever he wu,  he wished he was somewhere  else, and when he got there  he wondered why he'd bothered. Nothing really interested him���least of all the things  that should have." To Milo,  a sort of junior existentialist,  almost everything seems to  be a waste of time. "I can't  see the point in learning to  solve useless problems, or  subtracting turnips from turnips, or knowing where Ethiopia is or how to spell February." Of all things, the process of seeking knowledge  seems the biggest waste of  time.  Coming home from school  one day, Milo discovers a mysterious package in his room, a  package which contains The  Tollbooth, some coins, and a  map. For lack of anything better to do, Milo sets up the toll-  booth, pays the toll, and finds  himself, like Alice, transported to the Lands Beyond. On  his trip he passes through the  Land of Expectations, where  everything looks extraordinarily rosy, strays into the  Doldrums, where doing nothing is a serious business carried on on a tight schedule,  visits the warring cities of Die-  tionopolis and Digitopolis, undertakes a quest which leads  him through the Forest of  Sight and the Valley of Sound  and the Mountains of Ignorance to the Castle in the Air to  rescue the princesses Sweet  Rhyme and Pure Reason and  restore harmony to the Kingdom of Wisdom. He Is accompanied by Tock, the Watchdog, who has a large alarm  clock in his stomach, and the  Humbug, an overdressed and  somewhat overbearing beetle  who claims ancient and noble  ancestry���"Why, we fought  in the Crusades with Richard  the Lion Heart, crossed the  Atlantic with Columbus,  blazed trails with the pioneers, and today many members of the family hold prominent government positions  throughout the world. History  is full of Humbugs." Along  the way they encounter such  unusual and amusing characters as Azaz the Unabridged, King of Dictionopolis,  Monarch of Letters, Emperor  of Phrases, Sentences, and  Miscellaneous Figures of  Speech, and his Cabinet, the  Duke of Definition, the Minister of Meaning, the Earl of  Essence, the Count of Conno  tation, and the Undersecretary of Understanding, and  are guests at a banquet at  which everyone ia forced to  eat his words, literally. They  also meet The Spelling Bee,  Officer Short Shrift (a two-foot  tall policeman), Faintly Macabre, the not-so-wicked  Which, Kakofonous A. Dis-  chord, Doctor of Dissonance,  and his assistant the Awful  Dynne, the Mathemagician,  and a host of horrible demons  that includes the Terrible Tri-  vium, demon of petty tasks  and worthless jobs, ogre of  wasted effort and monster of  habit, The Gross Exaggeration, the Threadbare Excuse,  and the Overbearing Know-it-  all.  The point of the story is to  illustrate the uses and abuses  of knowledge, and Juster uses  every pun and play on words  he can dream up to get his  point across. Kids enjoy the  book, I suspect, because it  makes such wonderful sense  and nonsense out of the rules  of grammar and arithmetic  that too often seem a dry and  pointless exercise. I liked it  because I hated the dull,  boring basics when they were  taught to me. The story is  complemented by appropriately neurotic illustrations by  cartoonist Jules Feiffer. The  Phantom Tollbooth could help  you survive a case of School-  kid's Malaise, or the"Why do  we have to do this stuff, anyway?" syndrome, and when  the kids are off at school you  can settle down and read it  yourself. All for now.  Carefree gardening  by Sandy  A solid week of rain has left  most of our gardens thriving  in the leaf department and  pallid in the blossom end of  things, with the usual and always exception of the old reliables.  All the different varieties of  daisies including the ever  faithful Cosmos are in full  blast. The Marguerites, Nasturtiums and Iris are laden  and pickable as ever and the  primroses and snowdrop  Chrysanthemums are gathering themselves for another  blooming.  Now you know why I  devote so much ink to praising  these old fashioned, common,  non-hybridized plants. They  simply never, let you down, no  matter what the weather.  The weeds have gone mad  and are threatening their usual takeover. I think the time  has come for one of those  appalling inch-by-inch garden  "house cleanings". That is  marching forth with the edger  and the claw, loosening the  soil and flinging all intruders  to the four winds, trimming  and sharpening all edges in  short (or long, depending on  the size of your beds) giving  everything a complete overhaul. It wUI look better and  the trimming will be as good  for you as the garden. It will  also do a great deal towards  mollifying the summertime  idlers' inevitably guilty consciences.  Mother Nature has handed  me five lovely ears of corn as  a simple unsolicited gift which  I do appreciate.   They have  I clustered up in a spot where  my kindly neighbour ran his  roto-tiller and which  I am  : returning to lawn. 1 am going  : to simply mow around the  : corn until I can eat it. Maybe  : I can squinch a dozen ears  : from this volunteer crop.  One has only to spend a few  minutes in a woodland glade  to realize how unnecessary it  is for us to go to all the trouble  we do in order to recreate or  remake our natural beauty  into a citified conventional  garden that will match our  neighbour's. How I hope  someday to have the chance to  build my dream house can-  tilevered around a giant live  tree with plenty of room for  trolls and puppies under the  eaves.  I would love to toss my  lawnmower into the ocean and  have leaf mould and pine  needles instead of lawns....  The fragrance alone would be  worth it. The joy of tossing  plants and bulbs in betweeen  the trees and really just nip-  ping continuously at the undergrowth could hardly be  called work.  I will do it one day but in the  meantime I must carry on  with lawns, hedges and curving gardens, which is not  really too much to complain  about. It's just that as I drive  along our beautiful peninsula  roads and see all the glorious wildflowers blooming  with total abandon I get to  thinking "whatif" kinds of  sweepstake thoughts and  not a single one of them practical.  Now is the time to trim  hedges and thank the Lord you  don't have to worry about  sprinkling.  Happy Gardening.  On power line  Demonstration  in Victoria  A meeting held at Sakinaw Lake on Sunday morning between  Brian Gates and Alan Ferguson of the Environement Land Use  Committee and local residents concerned about the Cheekye-  Dunsmuir power line seems to have indicated that the door is  closed on possibilities of any change in B.C. Hydro's intention  to string the massive power line across Sakinaw Lake.  Howard White of Pender Harbour told the Coast News that  there now appeared to be no options open. Nonetheless, White  and Regional Director Joe Harrison will be amongst a group of  local citizens who will be travelling to Victoria next Thursday to  stage a demonstration outside the Legislative Building in protest against the routing of the power line. Anyone interested in  joining the group should contact White at 883-2730 or Harrison  at 883-9958.  The Sunday morning meeting with the E.L.U.C. representatives was televised and will be shown on the CBC evening  newscast.  Regional Board Chairman Ed Nicholson also indicated last  week that he intends to travel to Victoria to discuss the power  line with members of the government. "We've got to keep the  official lines of communication open," said Nicholson.  Freshasa DAISY!

On the dark side of the coin,  there are many millions more  of quasi-scholars who are  taking that 3,000-year-old  textbook, jumping it right out  of the context and culture in  which it was written, and applying it harshly and literally  to today's culture and context,  without benefit of the scholarly process of careful reconstruction that is so vital to the  enterprise.  Maybe one of the problems  is in the terms used for such  study���exegesis and hermen-  eutics���which can be quite  mind-boggling I  Actually, in simple terms,  what is required is the answer  to some questions:  DWho  was   talking  to  whom?  2)What was going on?  3)Where was the piece  centered?  4)Why was it written?  5)When was it written?  And if that looks like the  Five W's of journalism,  forgive an old retired working  newpaperman, but it is as applicable to the Bible as to  any piece of literature, even  though the Bible has the unique qualities of being a faith-  history written by a series of  unknown and known authors  over the 1,000 years of its writing, all of whom are believed  to have been guided by the  same power���God's Holy  Spirit���during the period of  creation.  And just like any other piece  of literature, it is valuable  to know much about the writer's point of view, his reasons  for writing (specifically), and  the purpose he hoped to  achieve. Anyone who has ever  had to reconstruct flash-back  pieces from a newspaper  library (morgue) will know  that he can virtually tell whose  work he is reading by these  clues, and by his grammatical  construction and turn of  phrase.  By the time this process is  complete (known as exegesis),  the scholar should feel almost  as much in touch with the  writer as it is possible to be,  over the span of years, and he  should be feeling angry or  sad, desperate or triumphant,  despondent or victorious,  right along with the writer. He  should know the aim and purpose of the piece, and what its  specific references were  aimed at, in its cultural milieu,  be it Judaic or Christian, or  borrowed from some Middle  Eastern ancient culture to  make a point.  Then, and then only, should  he move out of the text, with  quiet confidence that comes  with knowledge, to apply the  text to today's life, culture and  needs. And this must be done  with deep integrity, without  the wild figurative flights of  fancy that were the trademark  of the otherwise-excellent  scholars of the Alexandrian  school of theology and Bible  itudy during the early years of  Nothing is more gratifying than an unsolicited testimonial from a  satisfied customer, whatever business you're in. This Is what Len Salgo  of Concord Carpet Care has to say about advertising In the Coast News:  "The Coast News Is without a doubt the place to advertise. When we  first opened our business on the Sunshine Coast we ran steady ads for  two or three months In all three newspapers; we advertised on television  and we solicited by telephone. By far the best results have come from  our Coast News advertising." v  Len says that he kept a careful record of the effects his advertising  dollar was getting for him. "Eighty percent of our business has come  through Coast News advertising; five percent through referrals from our  satisfied customers. The remaining fifteen percent of our results have  come from television advertising, telephoning, and advertising in other  newspapers."  Today Concord Carpet Care is a thriving local business with over four  hundred satisfied customers, and Len Salgo gives much of the credit to  his business relationship with the Coast News. Shouldn't you be giving  it a try?  It Pays to Advertise in the  Church scholarship.  If these orderly processes  are followed, and if it is clearly understood that the Bible is  not a history book, nor is it  a record of blind snd unquestioning faith, nor is it a collection of myths (in the modern  sense of the word), or a loose  weaving together of ancient  literary contributions���then  the process of Bible study becomes an exciting and dynamic revelation of God's will and  purpose for mankind.  Seen in this light, the Bible  becomes a faith-history,  soundly rooted In history, and  yet not a slave to history,  since it is telling only one facet  of history, the relationship of  God with people during several ages or dispensations, as  they used to be classified.  Roughly, these ages would be:  the primitive age; the patriarchal age; the exodus and conquest of the land; the age of  monarchy; the exile and the  post-exilic age, and finally,  the new age of the new covenant which came with Christ.  The faith of the people was  framed and shaped by the  events, the hopes, the fears,  the depth of understanding,  and the cultural climate of  these various ages, and even  by the period within the age in  which the writing was located.  Hence, although it is a faith-  history, both its faith and its  history were as dynamic and  as volatile as the events  which framed the lives, as  well as the faith, of the people.  When light-hearted literal-  ists wave this precious book  aloft confidently, and spout  isolated texts out of context in  support of their preconceived  theories, they draw many listeners by their forceful assurance���some of them have created commercial dynasties on  the basis of their certainty,  Even the comedian Stan  Freeburg made a tidy sum  lampooning this type of so-  called "expert" in his best-  selling, single called "It's In  theBookt"  And it certainly is "in the  bookt"  All the hope and knowledge and nurture and wisdom  that man will ever need is truly in the book���the Bible-but  it is not lying loosely there for  any scatter-gun hunter to discover, one random text at a  time.  Instead, it is deeply planted  in rich soil, and must be  cultivated and cared for, constantly weeded and tilled, until the final grain is discovered, and may be harvested���  one mystery at a time.  And, as Jesus said in Mark  4:24, "Take heed what you  hear; the measure you give  will be the measure you get,  and still more will be given unto you."  Karl Johnston of Gibsons attends one of the sessions during his trip to Ottawa.  Student gets  A glimpse of government  by Kari Johnston  (One part of my journal on my  recent attendance at the Forum for Young Canadians. The  article will continue next  week.)  On June 23, one hundred  students from across the country arrived in Ottawa for a  week of close-up study of the  dynamics of government. I  attended this recent session,  representing the Sunshine  Coast. In the upcoming weeks  I will be relating my experience to you.  The program I attended is  known as the Forum for Young  Canadians, a unique educational program started in 1976  by the non-profit Foundation  for the Study of Processes of  Government in Canada.  The students, aged 16 and  17, were selected at the provincial level according to provincial quotas. All provinces  and territories were represented, as well as English and  French language groups, Indians and Inuits. The Forum  portant issues of the day with  those who are actually in policy-making positions. Simultaneous interpretation was  provided at all formal meetings.  Besides providing a fascinating glimpse into the  workings of government, the  program gives students from  widely diversified regions and  backgrounds a chance to discuss Canada's problems together, and to learn about the  rest of the country from fellow  Canadians.  While in Ottawa, we were  housed at Ashbury College, an  independent boys' school in  Rockcliffe Park. We travelled  daily to the Parliament Buildings and other government  centres for our onsite sessions.  My tuition and transportation costs were paid by my  sponsors the Gibsons Lions  Club.

Mr.  Forsey was joined by Mr.  James Hurley, a professor at  the University of Montreal.  We traced the origins of the  Canadian political system  back to Great Britain. In addition we also discussed and  compared the Canadian and  United States constitutions  and political systems.  In the afternoon we toured  the Museum of Science and  Technology. The displays  ranged from ancient machinery to modern satellites.  Next week I will explain to  you the new Immigration policy prepared by the Forum  students.

There is a great shortage of  wintertime storage for aircraft and no place for maintenance, according to Rogers.  "On the surface, it sounds  like the land is going to be  used properly. I think a  special meeting of both  councils [Sechelt and Gibsons]  would be required," said  Alderman Morgan Thomson.  A request wu made for  a twenty-year term for leasing  of the lots, made negotiable  every five years.  Council recommended that  no applications be considered  until   leasing   arrangements  have been made by Gibsons  and Sechelt councils and that  the presentation of Muffins  and Gordon be given priority.

Regarding bylaw 146.7,  amendment Sec. 291, it wu  pointed out by Henry Hall  that proposed deletion of the  word "contractors" so it just  reads "shops, offices and  yards" wu a duplication of  bylaw 179.  "I propose to rescind first  and second readings and put  it to bed u it should be,"  hesaid.  "The bylaw that Mr. Hall is  referring to wu in the works  some time ago but wu not  pursued by our former clerk,"  explained Alderman Thomson.  At this point in the meeting  a member of the audience  commented, "Blame it on  him."  The audience wu frequently reminded by Alderman  Morgan Thomson that it wu  "not an information meeting  but we will listen to and digest  comments that have been  made".  Amendment to bylaw 146.8  wu divided into four sections.  One section dealt with the  formation of a new residential IV zoning.  "I am in opposition. In  regard to the subregional  plan: wu the regional plan  agreed to by the council?"  asked Henry Hall.  "Yes, whether we like it  or not," answered Mayor  Nelson.  ' 'Making a rezoning IV zone  is in total contravention to the  subregional plan and the Sechelt Village Plan.

An issue that brought considerable discussion wu the  amendment to decrease  parking lot sizes from 10 feet  by 20 feet to nine feet by 18  and a half.  CouncU wu questioned  whether it would cause a  problem for campers and  motor homes, u the area is  tourist oriented.  "We need spots for our  decent sized cars," said Lee  Wilkenson.  Hayden Killam suggested  that "maybe some of the people here do not realize that the  majority of business Is done  In automobiles and we all  know there is a gu shortage.  You can't even buy a big  car."  "I can agree with KUlam  that you do not want targe  parking spots taking up valuable property that could be  developed by developers,"  said Henry HaU.  Mayor Nelson commented,  "You're taking a hard line on  this," after a suggestion wu  made for the instaUation of  a sign at the entrance to Sechelt warning the people that  if they aw going to Uve here,  they had better have a small  car.

"I regard it u unethical  to seU or trade that land,"  said Helen Dawe.  The property wu sold to  the Village of Sechelt below  market value by an elderly  woman named Alice French.  She "trusted" the village and  so placed no covenant on the  land, according to Dawe.  A general dissatisfaction  wu voiced in regards to the  moving of the library she in  the interests of senior citizens  and the quarter-mile distance  they would have to travel to  get there.  ' 'I hope somebody wUI come  up with a solution. Obviously  we can't," said Alderman  Thomson.  When CouncU wu asked  why the "rush" on doing  these things, Hayden KUlam  spoke up, "Because we're  all getting old and we're going  todie."  "A lot came in at once. We  felt that each person that had  a request for rezoning would  get a pubUc hearing," explained Alderman Thomson.  The mayor and councU have  their   priorities   mixed   up  be the same one to act on  this come November.''  If a ninety-day moratorium  on councU business were to  be placed now it would end  somewhere near November  elections.  President of the Sechelt Ratepayers Chuck Dowman said after the meeting  that the point they had been  after wu a ninety-day moratorium to "stop and look at  things and to ask if they do  want to go in for the subregional plan."  According to MLA Don  Lockstead, a moratorium  is not required to be placed on  the councU since all business  must be pused throught Victoria anyway.

The purpose of the society is to coordinate a sponsorship program  for Vietnamese refugees. The  society is a non-profit organization and any donating person will automatically become  a member of the society. A  copy of the society's constitution will be provided to  members who send a stamped  self-addressed envelope to  the address indicated in the  Refugee Aid coupon.  A bank account has been  opened and the society is now  ready to receive previously  pledged (or new) donations.  Donations can be made in  either of two ways: a single  donation can be made by  sending a cheque or money  order as indicated in the coupon. For those who prefer to  send monthly donations,  please send, if at all possible,  twelve post-dated cheques.  (This will eliminate a great  deal of administrative work.)  The society has applied to  Ottawa for a taxation number.  If and when this application is  approved, income tax receipts  will be issued. Because the  society is non-profit and based  on humanitarian principles,  there is little doubt that the  taxation number will be  granted. However, it can  apparently take up to six  months for Revenue Canada  to send their approval. The  society is looking into ways  to speed up this process.  Even if it does take the full  six months before the society  can issue tax receipts, that will  still be before next year's  tax returns are due.  For more information,  please phone Susan Nichols,  885-9798.  Wildlife  corner  Norwegian Birdwatchers  I got a call from a lady in  Sechelt last week. She had  two visitors over from Norway  who were interested in doing  some birdwatching while  here.  Since she didn't leave a  name, I've been unable to call  her back, but I gave her  Wayne Diakow's phone number as a person to talk to. I  was on the phone with Wayne  a couple of days ago. He told  me that he would be happy to  go out and show them some of  the better places around.  So if the woman whose  name I don't have contacts  Wayne at 883-9159,  something could be organized.  OwllngTrlp  Here's something that the  above-mentioned people may  be interested in.  On Wednesday night at  9:30, Wayne will be leading an  owling trip in the Porpoise Bay  campsite. The last trip was  successful. He managed to  call a screech owl within a few  feet of us.  Anyone interested is invited  to go along. If you have a  camera with a flash, it would  be worthwhile to take it with  you.  The owls will sit still even  when a flashlight is played on  them, so if you want a picture,  you should be able to focus  on the highlights of the eyes.  Some Bird Sightings  This is more information  from the talk with Wayne.  (Maybe he should be writing  this.) David Sterling, a park  naturalist with one of the top  sighting records in Canada  was up here recently and  found a Caspian tern at Mission Point. \  A red crossbill and a pair of  red-eyed vireos were seen at  Madeira Park by Wayne.  doors scared to move in case  they sparked something off.  A few feet separated them.  A slice of untouched bread between marked out no man's  land. The tension mounted.  A blur of movement; a hand  straked out closing the gap;  the Masked Stranger was on  the attack. Fat Cat stepped  back on the defensive, hoping  for an opening. A gray hand  grabbed the slice of bread and  held it to its chest; the Masked  Marauder stood up on its  haunches defiantly daring Fat  Cat to take it away. This  change in tactics befuddled  Fat Cat. The rules had been  altered and he didn't have a  rule book. After several seconds of bemused musings, Fat  Cat took a great interest in an  obscure clump of grass at the  other side of the garden. He  had been heading there in the  first place and who was this  masked stranger, anyway?  Fishing Owl  Now for a break in the high  drama. A new culprit had  been added to the list of goldfish thieves. On Friday  night, Sam Nelson of Sechelt  and his wife were having an  evening cup of tea. They had  been losing several of their  goldfish from the pond in  front of the window. It had  been mystery to them until  suddenly a small owl swooped  down. There was a flurry in  the pool and off it went to  perch on the corner of the  house, holding yet another  goldfish in its claws.  This is the first time that  I've heard of an owl going  after pond fish. Has anyone  else had this complaint? As a  deterrent to further thefts,  Mr. Nelsen has strung a strip  of invisible netting above the  pond hoping that this will be  enough to break up the flight  path of what he thinks is a  screech owl which has been  around for a couple of years.  Odds V Ends  According to John Rogers  in the Son, the eagles and  great blue herons in Stanley  Park are being bothered by  low-flying planes and it's  affecting their nesting.  Another little point of interest, this one from Aileen Cam-  bell in the Province. "The  oldest known bird tracks in the  world may have been discovered in the Peace River Canyon. They could be 120 million years old."  If you want to contact me,  give me a call at 886-2622,  886-7817 or 886-9151 in the  evenings, ta....  Another approach  Confessions of a potato nut  by Maryanne Weal  potatoes were gone. If we  were working anywhere near  the farmhouse Basil would  sneak off now and then, returning munching away with  an expression of pure bliss  on his weatherworn face. To  stop his treks through the  kitchen, his wife finally left  a bowl of cold new potatoes on  the stone slab in the dairy  from which we all could  help ourselves, if we could  beat Basil to them I  I had no intention of writing  about potatoes to complement  John's musings on the subject last week until yesterday,  when digging up several volunteers to make room for  some cabbage plants provided  a feast of new potatoes for  supper.  While there is no doubt that  the potato has sustained many  in times of famine or economic  hardship and as a staple food,  it tends to be taken for granted. In my opinion the potato  ranks high as gourmet eating  in its own right.  What is more delicious than  those first new potatoes, tiny  ones not larger than a banty's  egg gently eased by careful  fingers from the sides of the  rows so as not to disturb the  plant from its good intention  to develop a mature crop  then carefully washed,  steamed with a few sprigs of how many fillings  mint and served with the first baked variety?  Potataoes are not only a  supplement to a good meal.  They can be a meal in themselves. Baked in their jackets (oiled, not wrapped in  icky foil I) and filled with  cheese and crisp fried bacon-  bits, they need only a green  salad for a meal to satisfy the  most fastidious. Isn't there a  restaurant somewhere���Seattle maybe���which serves only  potatoes with goodness knows  for  the  A couple of friends of mine  moved into the Gorge area in  Victoria and became next-door  neighbours to a family of  racoons. From the onset  they expected to have a bit  of trouble, since their own  family consisted of a frisky  middle-aged dog who denies  that she is anything but a  teenager, and several cats.  As expected, the showdown  finally came; one of the  younger racoons wandered off  in search of adventure and  ended up paying a daytime  call to its new neighbours.  Bob and Sandy made it welcome and invited it to share  their lunch. The tomcat was  also interested in meeting the  stranger, but his intentions  were not necessarily to make  friends as he stalked it across  the lawn.  Like two old-time gunfight-  ers they squared off at high  noon, steely eye to steely  eye. The Fat Cat moved in,  while the Masked Stranger  held his ground and waited.  Bob and Sandy became bit  players in the drama, staring  out from behind the saloon  peas slathered in butter?  English tradition requires new  potatoes, green peas and  lamb, followed by gooseberry tart for Whitsuntide.  Because space is at a premium we grow maincrop  potatoes rather than an early  variety and this year have  tried an experiment in high-  rise potato culture. The theory is that the plant will produce a far larger crop of tubers  if it has more room for its  roots so we have used 2-3 foot  high barrels and boxes, started the potatoes at the bottom  and gradually filled up with  soil as the green leaves appeared. Now we have beautiful plants with hopefully a  barrelful of potatoes developing underneath.  It is, however, difficult to  sneak those tiny ones out the  side and one just has to wait in  faith the plant is doing its  thing. In the meantime they  make very attractive patio decorations. I hadn't realised  what really handsome plants  they are.  Those tiny potatoes are  equally delicious cold. I  remember a farmer for whom I  worked during the war was  particularly partial to them  and drove his wife to distraction with his constant raids  on the pantry. When it came  to suppertime she always  had to cook afresh; the cold  Have you tried plain boiled  potatoes (those new little ones  are special but any age or  size will do) served hot topped  with a dressing of cottage  cheese, sour cream or yogurt,  chopped green onion and a  sprinkling of caraway seed?  When I was at school our  favourite meal and Founders  Day tradition was Bangers  and Mash���pork sausage,  fried brown and succulent  with gravy and huge dollops  of mashed potato beaten with  hot milk and butter. We have  it still on October 18.  Never any problem of what  to do with left-over spuds-  sliced and fried crisply in  bacon fat with an added  chopped onion, or made into  a meal by the addition of  bacon pieces and with two or  three eggs beaten with a  little milk, poured over the  potato mixture in the skillet  and cooked slowly until set.  Bauernfrustuck, it's called  in Germany, and if you're a  farmer or doing other physical  work, it's a good breakfast;  we find it sufficient for supper with a salad.  My childhood memories  include as a special treat  going to a tiny cottage in the  village of Daslow on the edge  of Chatsworth Park where  the lady of the house served  afternoon tea in her parlour  or underneath the rose arbour with the most mouthwatering potato scones. I've  tried many recipes, but have  not been able to duplicate the  texture and delicacy of those  hot-from-the-griddle delights.  Maybe I've got too heavy a  hand! But I guess that's the  way it is with memories!  REFUGEE AID  I 11 enclose a single donation of $   |   | | enclose 12 post-dated cheques of  each.

It was an enjoyable  evening of fellowship and  sharing.  Our guest speaker was  Diane Brackett of Gibsons.  What a pleasure to have Diane  with usl She spoke to us about  how we should look on the  positive side of everything  and keep our eyes focused  on Jesus. Another point she  made was that we should not  be "Yo-Yo Christians with  grasshopper minds." We  thank the Lord for having had  the opportunity to hear Diane  and we hope that she will be  able to join us again soon.  A number of the women at  the meeting had attended the  W.A.F. Retreat in Langley on  the first two weekends of  June. It was a delight to have  a few share some of their  experiences at the Retreat.

Coast News, July 17,1979  Come cry with me  Dear Ann,  My husband dyes his hair.  I know no-one wants to have  grey hair though I didn't  mind it. I feel rather that  he's less masculine or something. I don't like him doing  It, but 1 can't define my  feelings exactly. Why do you  suppose 1 feci this way.  Wondering.  Dear Wondering,  You may have felt your  husband was strong - tun  strung to feel this Insecurity.  You had faith In his strength,  anil now discover he'i  and just as vain or vulnerable  as you or I. Maybe we expect  more of others than ourselves. I'd forget about It  You want him to feel good  about himself, If that's part  of It .accept.  Dear Ann,  I wonder if my husband is  all right. He is always pleased  to have me wear unusual  under garments - a garter  belt or a fancy bra turns him  on. When we go to make  love he wants me to put on a  black slip or other impractical  undies. I've tried to please  him but wonder if this  is  normal? Can you tell me?  Costumed.  Dear Costumed,  I think It's pretty normal.  There's an old saying-people,  or women, look bettor with  a little on than node-that they  are more provacative with a  little left to the Imagination.  So your man la like many  others ��� he finds it glamorous  to have a bit of bee and ribbon  over the piece de resistance.  Dear Ann,  I'm having raccoon problems. They are very daring  coming to the house and in  my chicken pen. What can  I do, as I like them and  wouldn't harm one but would  like to see them less?  Animal Lover.  Dear Animal Lover,  I too have raccoon friends.  They aren't always blends  but I too love them.  I'd like to know if anyone  has developed a raccoon  repellent I have my garden  dug up every other night.  I've planted my lettuce,  the same lettuce four times.  They go through the garden  digging up earthworms In  my compost and under the  black plastic, so I'd like to  know loo.  Dear Ann,  In a past column you've  dealt with the subject of impotence, but I didn't have that  worry at the time, and I've  forgotten what you suggested.  My husband won't go to a  doctor so I need a private remedy.  Thanks in advance,  Seeking  Dear Seeking,  This Is an interesting subject with no certain remedies,  as the causes are ao varied.  Recently I read where sine,  20 or 30 milligrams, combined  with primrose oil, Vitamin F  combined with zinc snapped  bored animals back to the mating urge.  Restoring sex drive to labor  atory animals moved them to  try the remedy on humans and  they had a high degree of  success. Oysters have a high  zinc content, hence the longstanding belief that oysters  were an aphrodisiac. Vitamin  F Is found in oils of seeds and  nuts. Zinc ia found In Over  and other red meats and whole  grains. Many times diet contributes to a tired and bored  attitude In life. Hence one  Isn't often In a sexy mood.  Good health and good nutrition go hand in hand. Lack of  sine In laboratory animals  actually resulted In shrivelled  sex organs, so pre-supposlng  that animals and man have  similarities, It's worth a college  by.     Many  different  cause* are touted, so If It's  In the mind, or poor health,  yon can experiment and make  your man better nourished if  nolhing else.     Smoking Is  Hal  Is a hard habit to change.

Last week's winner was Jodl Eldred of  Spruce Road, Gibsons, who correctly located the house sign on the Francis Penln-  f ula Road.  Ambulance Service may save lives  Vancotiver-In a province-  wide effort to provide the  best possible emergency  medical service, the Ambulance Employees of B.C.  six months ago launched the  "Vial of Life" program. This  week, the 100,000th vial was  distributed through the Vancouver Branch of the Canadian  Red Cross.  The program is simple.  It costs the private citizen  nothing. But in a medical  emergency, it could save his  or her life.  The Vial of Life is a 3-inch  plastic cylinder which contains  a brief form with essential  medical information on the  various people living in an  individual home: heart conditions, diabetes, epilepsy,  allergies, prescription drugs  being taken, etc.  The vial is attached by rubber band to the underside of  the top shelf of the refrigerator in the home. A decal  indicating the presence of the  vial is placed on the refrigerator door.  In an emergency, medical  personnel, guided by fhe information contained in the  Vial of Life, will be able to  begin treatment immediately  or to avoid standard procedures which might be dangerous to individuals with  drug allergies or existing  health conditions.  According to Dave Skid-  more, secretary of the B.C.  Ambulance Employees, the  objective of the program is  to provide a Vial of Life fo  every home in the province.  "We began the program in  January," he said, "and we  have been overwhelmed by  the acceptance of the program  itself and the support it has  been given by a wide variety  of organizations���from local  service clubs to organizations  like the Vancouver Branch of  the Canadian Red Cross.  The Ambulance Employees will be concentrating their  efforts on the Vial of Life  in B.C. for the neit few  months, but long term plans  call for taking the program  into all the provinces across  the country.  Further information on the  program can be obtained  through the Ambulance Employees of B.C. p.o. box  80900, South Burnaby, B.C.,  V5Y3Y1  Indian Heritage Dollars  For the third consecutive  year, Indian Heritage Dollars  will be available around the  Province during the summer  and fall of 1979.  The 1979 issue consists  of three pieces paying tribute  to two famous native women  and one famous chief.  The first coin to be circulated is the Capilano Dollar,  named for that most famous  of native women, Mary Capilano. Maty Capilano was a  Yaculta princess and chief-  tainess in her own right and  on her marriage to Hyas  Joe of the Squamish received  the name "Princess of Peace"  ���Lah-Who-Late.  The second coin in the  series pays tribute to Nlmp-  kish artist Ellen Neel, whose  work and teaching had a  profound effect on the resurgence of Coast Indian art.  The third coin honours Chief  Sahelton, Chief of Chiefs  of the Cowichan.  All artwork on this very  beautiful trio of coins has been  created by well-known Tsim-  shian artist Vernon Brown.

School was a pain off right there and then I  in the neck, church attendance As I have said before,  a bore and a waste of time (1 school was a headache to ssy  am still of the same opinion), the least. I hated mathe-  and it was with difficulty that ntatics and all thst it implied-  I tried to conform to my par- columns of figures, percen-  ents wishes and do whst they tages and fractions snd geo-  wanted me to do instead of  going my own blithe way.  It was in the year 1921 that  I came to a momentous decision. I would suffer out the remaining school years, hateful  as they were, and once free  from the disciplines attached  to obtaining an education and  parental authority, I would do  what I really wanted to do. Go  out into the world���see everything, do everything and in  those years experience all  that was to be experienced  and, crazy as it may sound  now, I hoped to have it all  metry and trigonometry. To  this day I only know approximately what I have in the  bank and am only vaguely  aware of the cash I have on  hand and it seems to me, judging from my past experiences,  that the only interest I have  ever had in money is getting  rid of it as soon as possible I  Getting back to school, I  tolerated English language  and literature (couldn't stand  Shakespeare and still don't).  Went along with history as  being necessary to give some  kind of a background into the  life I was about to embark upon, and had a certain flair or  aptitude for drawing and mastering the language I had  chosen, French. In fact I  was so good at this latter  subject that the teacher, a  Monslenr he Sage, used to  hold me up ss s shining example of what s boy could do  if he tried, but he alwsys concluded his remarks by saying  thst it was too bad I was such s  good French schoolsr but thst  he was certain I would be  hanged before I was twenty-  one years oldl This, no doubt,  wss inspired by the fact that  I was an incurable mischief-  maker and did everything I  could do to disrupt the class,  once I had assimilated whst I  thought was necessary at the  time.  There was one other subject I detested and that wss  Latin. The character who  taught this subject, brilliant  as he was, was an object of  ridicule not only to the boys  but to the other teachers as  well, although they tried  hard to conceal their contempt  for him. I personally saw  nothing wrong with him but it  was common knowledge that  he spent his lunch hour in the  nearest pub. The fact that he  was in a somewhat despond  ent mood and an air of gloom  hung over the morning class  and he was strangely in a  flushed, jovial condition during afternoon sessions wrestling with the ancient language, didn't really register on  me at the time. However,  should he bend over to correct something one had written down in one's exercise  book, the heady odour of  malt and hops was only too  apparent. '  Whether it was his example  or not I am not sure, but I  think it was due to his influence and, possibly, the  hatred of Latin that inspired'  me (urged on by some of the  older boys) to pinch a bottle  of port wine from my father's  cellar (he was a grocer and  had a wine and spirits licence). I did this during the  noon hour lunch period, took  it to school and, hidden in the  back row with the port concealed in my desk, I kept  taking furtive sips (oh yes, I  did give the other boys a  swig or two) until I got com  pletely blotto and commenced  to sing a ribald song and do an  impromptu dance.  This episode ended by my  being removed from the classroom, escorted home by another outraged teacher with a  note from the headmaster,  the Very Reverend Arthur  Telfer, to my father, advising  him that if my behaviour did  not improve or if there were a  repetition of these disgraceful  goings-on, he would be forced  to expel me. 1 have only a dim  recollection of what my father's reaction to all this was  before being led to bed by a  tearful mother and sister to  sleep off the effects of nearly a  bottle of port. It was an excellent wine of vintage stock  as 1 had purposely taken it off  a shelf at the back of the wine  cellar rather than removing  one of the cheaper sherries or  ports in more popular demand  in the front, figuring that,  covered with dust and the odd  cobweb, it would hardly be  missed.
