Left to Right: Paula Mercalf, Michelle Fulton,  Lisa Hlgglns, Debbie Donley, Carrie Hillhouse,  Shelly Brown, Sandra Phillips.  Sewers near completion  Sechelt's million dollar system  The deterioration of the present dock facilities in Gibsons Is a  matter of grave concern to the owners of commercial vessels,  and another winter of storms can cause costly damage if some  action is not taken immediately. This is the gist of a brief to  the Director of Small Craft Harbours Branch of the federal fisheries and environment department from the Gibsons Commercial Vessel Owners and Operators Committee. A copy was given  to Council by Alderman Trainor, Chairman of the Marina and  Harbour Development Committee at the April 3rd meeting of  Council.  The brief points out that where once the wharf handled only  seaborne freight, its function now Is to provide shelter for a  fleet of commercial vessels, both tug and fishing, at present  numbering 34, and an ever-increasing number of recreational  pleasure craft. The wharf is the only protection from frequent  winter squamishes, and the grave state of deterioration was  noted last winter when the dock actually trembled in the wind.  Heavy swells that the breakwater could not hold back caused  damage to floats, set vessels adrift and created a hazard to  those trying to get to their craft to check their security. "Even  the wash of the B.C. ferries coming and going from Langdale  can be felt on the sheltered side of the breakwater," the report  states. The value of commercial vessels that rely on Gibsons  harbour for protection is about $9 million and that of pleasure  craft and marine faculties, about $2 million. Should storms next  winter sweep away the breakwater the financial loss would be  extremely high not only in damage to vessels but in loss of  employment and business revenue.  As well as faulty brake-  waters the harbour has inadequate depth of water for safe  navigation at low tide, especially in rough weather. The  prop of one tug has been  fouled four times in five  months in our shallow harbour  and each time at an average  cost of $2,500 for repairs as  well as loss of time. A great  deal of revenue is lost to Gibsons because the inadequate  harbour is bypassed by fishermen and tugboat operators  who would otherwise berth  here bringing business revenue to a dying Lower Gibsons.  The administration of the  wharf by two federal minist-  tries makes for delayed decisions on wharf maintenance  and improvement, the brief  states.  The brief says the problems  can be resolved by such definite action as constructing  a solid breakwater to replace  the present A-frame, by  dredging to 14 feet below low  water in the areas used by  commercial vessels, and by  constructing a suitable breakwater on the north side of the  wharf, also by hastening the  construction of a marina  to ease the present congestion, and by providing protected moorage for seaplanes.  The committee especially  recommends that the situation  be regarded urgent, that a recreational marina be provided  without delay to relieve crowding at the present floats,  and that all interest organizations be given the opportunity  to contribute to the planning  and development of Gibsons  harbour.  Sunshine Coast Regional  District Secretary-Treasurer  Anne Pressley gave a comprehensive report on Sechelt's  sewer system at the regular  meeting of Sechelt  Village  Council held in the Council's  Chambers at the Village  Hall last Wednesday, April  4th. The original proposal  drawn up in 1975 estimated  the cost at' $1.6 million.  Expected to be complete in  May 1979, the system will  now cost S2.25 million.  Alderman Morgan Thompson,  who was a party to the original  proposal, said that inflation  had pushed expenses higher  than anticipated, but he  termed the rates "respectable".  Fortunately direct high cost  grants from the Federal  Government's Central Mortgage and Housing Corporation  have offset much of the increase. $822,625 was received  from this source leaving  $1.43 million still to be financed. Ms. Pressley said that  25% of a loan of $807,000  from C.M.H.C. is forgivable  leaving an actual capital debt  to tile Corporation of  $609,000.  The Village is also eligible  for a grant of $100,000 in  the form of Provincial assistance under the Sewage  Facilities Systems Act. This  leaves $618,000 still to be  financed, and Ms. Pressley  told the Coast News that this  would be obtained through  the Municipal Finance Authority, the Province's financing  body which borrows money on  the world market. She had,  she said, estimated an interest  rate of 12% for this latter  sum, but she was hopeful'that  the rate might be rather lower.  The total debt to the taxpayers with respect to the  capital expense loans from the  M.F.A. and C.M.H.C.  amounts to approximately  $144,000 per annum, and the  debt will be retired in 25  years. This money will be  raised in the form of a charge  of $1.10 per taxable frontage  foot per year. This is an increase of approximately .50  cents per foot over the estimate in the original proposal.  Ms. Pressley told the Coast  News that the increase for  an average 60' lot would be  about $30 per year. A study of  the lands within the Service  V 3k%  ���: -��� -v- * :^^r^^&' - v  \\m*a  }____  Work Is continuing on the site of Gibsons marine pub  at the head of the wharf  Unit gives the total actual  foot-frontage as 55,756  feet, and the total taxable foot  frontage as 39,712 feet.  For single family dwellings,  the minimum taxable foot-  frontage is thirty-three feet,  and the maximum one hundred feet. The charges will be  included in property owners'  taxation notices. An assessment of 2 mils, which would  have added approximately  $12 to $15 to the average  home owner's property tu  was contained -ht the original  sewer proposal, but this, Ms.  Pressley said, would not now  be levied since the budget is  balanced.  Ms. Pressley estimates the  operating costs of the sewer  system to amount to approximately $38,000 per year.  These costs will be met by an  annual fee which will be levied  against all users in the specified area. The rate for single  detached family residences  will be $60 per year which  is a $15 increase over the  estimate in the original proposal. For multi-plex residential or apartment units, the  rate will be $54 per year  except in the case of Senior  Citizens' apartments which  will cost $33 per year. Mobile  home sites will cost $33 per  year, and the school rate will  be $33 per classroom. Each  hotel or motel unit will be  charged $33 or $42 in the case  of units with kitchens. Stores,  offices, service stations, light  industry operations, etc. will  be charged a user rate based  on lot frontage: $140 for frontage of up to 50 feet, $175  for frontages between 50 and  100 feet, and $245 for frontages of 100 feet and over.  The user rates for restaurants  will be calculated according to  formulae which take into  account the patron area and  whether or not the restaurants have dance or game  areas, An estimated operating  deficit of $4,000 per annum is  expected to be met by new  commercial developments in  Sechelt.  Expenses of $140,000 for  connections put in at the time  when the sewer was constructed from the property  lines to the sewer pipes cannot  be capitalized, and these will  be paid by connection fees.  About 460 connections are  expected. The fee will be  $350 where the diameter of  the owner's sewer does not  exceed 100 mm. and $400 for  sewers over 100 mm. in diameter but not over 150. For  sewers over 150 mm. in diameter,  the charge will  be  the actual cost of installing  the sewer connection, but no  connection will be permitted  if, in the opinion of the  Superintendent, the public  sewer is incapable of carrying  away wastes emanating from  the owner's premises. The  fee includes an inspection  fee, and no sewer shall be  covered or backfilled until  the Inspector has given written approval of the Installation. Any defects win have to  be corrected, and a charge  of $10 will be levie<U  additional inspection. Wo*  within the property of appll  cants for sewer connections  will be the responsibility  of the applicants. Sewer fees  paid on or before October  31st will be reduced 15% at  the time of payment which will  reduce the fee for a sewer  of up to 100 mm. diameter to  $297.50. All connections must  be completed within six  months after the plant becomes operational.  At the Gibsons Council  Bits and pieces  Federal N.D.P. candidate, Ray Skelly, was early on  the Job as he greeted day shift workers arriving for  work at Port Mellon.  Elphie students searched  A missing ring and wrist-  watch led to a Grade Nine  class in Elphinstone Secondary School being detained  and questioned for two  hours by the R.C.M.P.,  and finally searched last  Wednesday, April 4th.  The ring and wristwatch  were the property of Teresa  Goddard, a Grade Nine  student. When she reported  them missing the teacher  in charge, Mrs. H. Pelto,  questioned the class about  their whereabouts without  success. Vice-Principal Dave  Richardson also failed to elicit  information from the class  about the items and Constable  Turlock of the R.C.M.P. was  called to the school by principal Barry Boulton.  The students remained in  the Foods Room from  2.00 p.m, until 4.00p.m. when  initial questioning by the  policeman failed to produce  the missing items. The search  of the students may have  been made at a student  suggestion.  While it is reported that the  students appeared to regard  the incident as something of  an adventure, it would appear  to be in contravention of a  recently revised school board  policy which explicitly states  that no interview or interrogation of students by law enforcement officers should take  place without the parents  being consulted and, if possible,   present   during   the  interview.  Principal Barry Boulton  when interviewed by the  Coast News said that he  was not aware that the students had been searched until  advised later by his own  daughter who was a member  of the class.  The attorney for the B.C.  Teachers Federation expressed the opinion that the deten  tion and mass search was  highly improper. Sechelt  Teachers' Association  President, FDoris Fuller,  when asked for comment by  the Coast News declined to  comment but said that she had  asked the School Board to  look into the matter.  The missing ring and wrist-  watch were found next morning in a girls' washroom,  Pioneers pass on  "He was a landmark."  The words were spoken  recently by Gibsons alderman  Jack Marshall on hearing of  the recent death of Tom Fyles  of Hopkins Landing but his  words, could equally have  applied to two other veteran  pioneers of the Sunshine  Coast who passed away  recently. Harry Chaster of  Gower Point and Harry RoO  berts who gave his name to  Roberts Creek also  passed  away recently.  Besides Roberts Creek, the  three pioneers are commemorated on the map of British  Columbia by Chaster Creek  and a mountain near Bella  Coola is named after Tom  Fyles. From the early years of  this century and before  these three men lived active  lives in British Columbia and  we would echo Jack Marshall  in observing that three land-  marks have gone   A letter to Gibsons Council  from Agnes Labonte, acting  secretary of the Sunshine  Coast Committee of the B.C.  Council for the Family, asked  Council to issue a proclamation jointly with Sechelt  and the Regional district  declaring the month of May  Family Month. Council agreed. Mrs. Labonte's letter  announced that the committee  will publish a series of four  articles in May on the theme  children and the family.  Council will pay a $10 membership to Outdoor Unlittered,  a non-profit organization that  operated Pitch-In, a campaign  to remove litter from the outdoors, especially roadsides  and public grounds. Outdoors  Unlittered sends information  packages to schools and other  organizations. Council was informed by circular letter that  the taxpayer will be charged  1.430 mills for the operation  of the assessment authority  and .018 mill for the Municipal  Finance Authority. Council  has sent $75 to the Elphinstone band for their part in  the Golden Anniversary  ceremony when pioneers of  50 years residence in the  Village and district were  honoured.  Alderman Marshall reported the chlorination plant  to be at least half completed  and that No. 1 well was not  operating because of a breakdown in the pump. Council,  after some discussion of what  action to take to ensure that  no crisis develop if the pump  on No. 2 well should fail at  tlie same time, decided to  call for price quotations on a  spare pump, and immediately  purchase the spare as a precaution. "We need to look for  a site for a third well for the  Village," said Alderman Marshall, "especially in upper  Gibsons to keep ahead of  growing water requirements."  Alderman Trainor reported  that the portion of the airport  road which is on airport property is in very poor condition  and some means to grade and  maintain that section will  have to be found. "The con.  dition of the road is somewhat  critical," said Trainor,  "when the ambulance, fur  instance, had to get a baby in  an incubator to a waiting helicopters for an emergency  flight to Vancouver." Alderman Trainor pointed out some  inaccurate information in  a report in another paper IM  week on the possible funding  assistance for the marina  by the provincial government.  "We now have plans for a  marina that could in time provide about 440 berths," said  Trainor, "and we have a lot  more applications on hand  than the article quoted.  The committee will always  provide up-to-date information whenever anyone'  calls."  Alderman Fitchett said he  and Alderman Marshall,  and Works Foreman Ron  Webber were to meet Fire;  Chief Horner the next eve-:  ning, Wednesday. "You win  have the information on the  hydrants that weren't installed for that meeting,"  Alderman Marshall asked  Webber. "I should have it in  time for the meeting,"  Webber replied.  "We apologize for the pool  closure during the school  holiday week," said Alderman  Goddard. Many a dismayed  mother and disappointed  child have been heard on the  subject especially at a time  when outside activitiy has not  much in the way of programmes going. "It was most  unfortunate," said Goddard,  "that the pool water became  so cloudy, the lifeguards  could not see thc bottom and  felt this was a hazard. The  pool was drained and scrubbed during the spring break.''  Haydn Killam  storms out  Election notice  Residents of the Sunshine  Coaat are reminded that the  deadline for registration to  vote In the provincial election  to be held on May 4 b Wednesday, April 11.

It win be noted that  the deadline of Wednesday of  this week makes registration  Imperative Immediately.  Hayden Killam, developer  and owner of Sechelt Building  Supplies Ltd., stormed out of  the Village Council meeting  last Tuesday when his request  for a zoning certificate to construct a commercial retail  structure at Cowrie and Inlet  Streets was referred to the  Planning Committee. Council  members felt that the request  was satisfactory insofar as  present bylaws are concerned,  but it was pointed  out that new bylaws are pending. Insisting on a reply now  and complaining that he could  not wait until the next meeting, Killam asserted that  the request complied with  everything. Hc wants thc vote  to be recorded. It was moved  by Larry MacDonald and seconded by Joyce Kolibas that  the request bc referred to the  Planning Committee. Mr.  Killam left thc meeting in a  rage.  | Delivered to EVERY address on the Sunshine Coast every Tuesday |  _______________  m  ���Ml  ___m____  iBMHn Coast News, April 10,1979.

If you have any doubts about whether  or not you are registered for the upcoming provincial election we would  again draw your attention to the advertisement on Page Three of this newspaper. The deadline for registration is  Wednesday of this week, hence the  urgency. By the time this paper appears  in your mailbox you will have just twenty-  four hours to check that you are registered to exercise your franchise and vote  for the government of this province.  This absurdly short time is an illustration in itself of the unseemly haste with  which this election was called. What we  would like to know is why. Why, with  almost two years to run on the life of  his government and with a  his government and with a commanding  majority in Victoria, did Premier Bill  Bennett call this election to coincide  with the federal election? What is the  crisis that compels him to go to the  voters? Why is an election called with  such haste that it may well be impossible  for many conscientious voters to ensure  that they can vote?  One is virtually forced to the conclusion  that only the bleakest type of electoral  opportunism has made the premier of  this province call this election. If there is  a Social Credit MLA, a Social Credit candidate, or a Social Credit supporter in the  land who can present a valid and convincing explanation why this election has  to be held at this time and at such short  notice we would welcome hearing from  them.  Lacking such an explanation from  somebody we will be forced to conclude  that Bennett is afraid of allowing the  people of his province a clear and deliberate choice and is hoping that the  simultaneous campaigns and the shortness of notice allowed will enable htm to  win the election whether he truly has  the support of the people or not.  Dear Mr. Trudeau  Then, of course, we have our other  peerless leader distinguishing himself  with public utterance that one cannot  without qualm report in a family newspaper. Just over ten years ago the suave  and sophisticated Mr. Trudeau was  kissing the girls with flowers in his  buttonhole and promising us a Just  Society. Today he is hurling epithets at  the unemployed and telling them to  get off their you-know-whats and look  for work.  It is true, Mr. Trudeau, that occasionally people who hold jobs have a difficult time getting up off their you-know-  whats to do then. We would submit  that you have had that trouble during  the ten years that you have held the top  job in this country. Ten years ago, just  after the triumph of Expo, you came  to the prime ministership of a country  which seemed to be on the verge of  finding itself. The great international  exposition of the previous year had given  Canadians more confidence in their  country than they had known before.  You seemed to the vast majority of  Canadians to be just exactly what was  needed to give this new confidence  direction and substance. You were  presented as the only man who could  understand the French Canadians and  so hold this country together.  Ten years later the confidence has dissipated, the economy is stagnant, and the  French Canadians are considering  separatism. Your government is timidly  asking for just over $2.00 for the export  of its natural has to the United States  while the Mexicans are getting over  $3.00 for theirs. Your government has  overseen the export of unprocessed  resources and, consequently, the export  of the jobs that could have been found in  their processing.  And that is why, Mr. Trudeau, those  demonstrators you so bad-temperedly  urged to get off their you-know-whats are  holding placards instead of jobs, You  promised a Just Society, Mr. Trudeay,  but you couldn't provide it. You switched  your party allegiance to take over the  leadership of the Liberal Party. You were  going to reform that aged octopus which  has overseen Canadian non-development  for most of the 20th Century but instead  today you are as arrogantly cynical and  as jaded as the party itself. Like it, you  have nothing left to offer us but your  hunger to retain power.  We have a suggestion, Mr. Trudeau.  Why don't you take your fat politician's  pension and your independent wealth and  go skiing or scuba-diving or night-  clubbing somewhere - permanently.  from the files of Coast News  % YEARS AGO  Mayor Larry Labonte informed members of council that construction is now  underway at the south end of Holland  Park on the new Elphinstone Pioneer  Museum.  St. Mary's Hospital now had a landing  pad for helicopters just behind the  hospital for emergency cases.  Gibsons mill rate for 1974 may be  29.96, the highest mill rate the municipality has ever faced.  10YEARS AGO  Guy Fisher, Gibsons taxi driver for  more than forty years, retired on April  I.Guy began driving cab locally back in  1928.  Members of Sechelt Municipal Council  are concerned about the Regional Board  hiring an assistant to the secretary-  treasurer at a salaryt of $625. Since the  Sechelt clerk Is paid $425 per month, the  council feels the Regional Board is  throwing money around.  15 YEARS AGO  Teachers at the B.C. Teachers' Convention fear that they will not be exempted from the Unemployment Insurance.  Because of the teacher shortage and the  unlikelihood of teacher unemployment,  delegates to the Convention see paying  unemployment Insurance as double  taxation.  Gibsons and Sechelt exchange subscribers vote 4-1 In favour of toll-free  calling between the two areas,  calling between the two areas.  20YEARSAGO  Sechelt Council turned down an appll  cation from the Sechelt Rod and Gun  Club for a crow shoot on the grounds that  crows were not a sufficient menace. -  A petition is being circulated to restrict  the free roaming of cattle around Gibsons  in the Soames Point, Gower Point and  Seaview Cemetry areas.  Coast News editorial: "Premier  Bennet's Indecent haste at striving  to be able next August to say the province  has no debt is doing so at someone  else's expense which takes the litter  off the Idea right at the outset. It is  apparent that Mr. Bennet has an election  In mind."  25 YEARS AGO  Sechelt  Children's  Choir,  trained   by  Harry Roberts of Davis Bay, came within  three points of the top award at the recent  Sechelt Music Festival.

As the first shots were  fired in B.C.'s second election  campaign of this spring of  1979, Premier William Bennett of this province made one  of the most graceless and  offensive utterances I've yet  heard in any election campaign. On two separate occasions Bennett described himself as defending the province  against National Socialism.  For those of you who have  forgotten or may never have  known, the only party called  National Socialists in the history of government was that  headed by Adolf Hitler, generally known as the Nazi party.  If I may be permitted a brief  personal observation, the  movement that is democratic  socialism had its birth in the  coalfields of south western  Scotland where I was born. A  man called Keir Hardy was  the first great organizer of the  movement and from its inception it sought to redress injustice and change government by peaceful and persuasive means. Through the  eighty or ninety years of the  movement's life it has never  wavered anywhere in the  world from this commitment.  Here in Canada, in fact here  in Gibsons, it was born out of  philosophic discussion involving J.S.Woodsworth, who  was a minister of the church  here, and his friends Doctor  Fred Inglis and members  of the Finnish community.  The banner was carried in this  country by CJ. Coldwell and  Tommy Douglas. It was born  of a premise, as I understand  it, that human society would  be a better and a richer organization if the principles of  co-operation and equitable  distribution were followed as  opposed to exploitation and  greed.  In two world wars men and  women of the persuasion of  democratic socialism struggled and suffered in the opposition to tyranny, not least  of all against the National  Socialist party of Adolf Hitler.  When the Second World War  was over the British people  swept the British Labour  Party, the original democratic socialist movement, into  power ��� this after six years  of terrible suffering from  Nazi bombs and guns.  Let us remember that it was  a democratic socialist movement that brought universal  medical insurance to the  society of man, in Britain  after the war, and here in  Canada some fifteen years  later, under the administration of T.C.Douglas in Saskatchewan medical insurance  Musings  John Burnside  Slings & Arrows  ��  George Matthews  ?|  came to North America for the  first time.  It is one thing to disagree  with the democratic socialist  movement, to feel that the  solutions it proposes for society's ills are the wrong solutions. It is quite another to  slander in this ignoble way a  movement which has consistently produced men and women of high ideals and dedication to the cause of just and  peaceful government.  If the only method whereby  the present provincial government in British Columbia can  cling to power is by appealing  to fear, ignorance and greed  then the quicker they get defeated at the polls the better.  If Bennett doesn't know the  philosophic differences between the German Nazi party  of Hitler and the N.D.P. party  in this country then he has  no business running anything  larger than a hot dog stand.  If, as is more likely, Bennett  does understand the difference, then by linking the  N.D.P. with Nazism he is  practising a corrupt and cynical brand of politics designed  to play on people's ignorance  and fears. It is a deep offense  and a slander against many  hundreds of thousands of  people alive and dead who  fought for democracy and voted socialist and 1 wouldn't  even buy a hot dog from the  man.  The elections coming up  should be keenly contested.  Each party and each candidate  should put their best foot forward. Each party and each  candidate seeks to persuade  the electorate that their ideas  of government are the ideas  we should follow. Abuse and  slander should have no part  in the process. Any party or  any candidate that does so  indulge deserves to be thoroughly rejected by the electorate. Such tactics are an insult  to the intelligence of voters  and an assault on the democratic process itself.  *********  1 think it appropriate to  pay tribute to Tommy Douglas  who retires from political  life this year. The fighting  bantam has been a credit to  his party and his country  throughout a long career.  Many people will have a favourite Douglas memory. For  me it came after the 1963  election.  Douglas had been named  the leader of the newly-constituted N.D.P. party after  seventeen years as the C.C.F.  premier of Saskatchewan. It  was generally agreed that in  that seventeen years he had  headed the most progressive  and the best provincial administration in Canada. When he  stepped down to run federally  in Regina the Liberals and  Conservatives teamed . up  against him and he went down  to defeat in the province he  had served for so long.  The C.B.C. ran interviews  with the party leaders and  Pearson and Diefenbaker said  the predictable. When Douglas came on he spoke with  immense and touching dignity. He thanked his party  workers and those who had  voted for him and closed by  quoting an old Scots ballad  called John Armstrong.  "Fight on, fight on my merry  men a 71 am hurt but I am not  slain./I will lay me down and  rest awhile/ And then I'll  rise and fight again."  It was simply and movingly  said. It had that undefinable  something we call class. We  never have too much of it in  public life and as little Tommy  moves on to well-earned re-  irement we would pay tribute  o a great Canadian.  It never rains but it pours.  For months now, thousands  of humble columnists all  across the country have been  subjected to a news drought.  Reporters have had to track  down stories like, "Boy saves  puppy from drowning,"  "Welfare mother of three  wins $50 in Moose raffle,"  or "Earthworm shortage  threatens disaster in Kamloops sports fishing industry."  Columnists have been obliged  to trot out old standards like  "The time I forgot my umbrella on the way to work..."  and "I think it's time I reviewed soap operas." In the  space of two short weeks all  that has changed; now there  are so many stories, our poor  scribblers don't know where to  begin.  Think of the fun a writer  could have with the Idi Amin  story. Nuclear disasters are  glowing with possibilities.  The federal election, the  provincial election, the British  election, are aching to be  analysed. Premier Bennett  needling the New Democratic  Party with the "National  Socialism" label desperately  The Gallows  There was a weasel lived in the sun  With all his family,  Till a keeper shot him with his gun  And hung him up on a tree,  Where he swings in the wind and rain,  In the sun and in the snow,  Without pleasure, without pain,  On the dead oak tree bough.  There was a crow who was no sleeper,  But a thiel and a murderer  Till a very late hour; and this keeper  Made him one ot the things that were,  To hang and flap in rain and wind  In the sun and In the snow.

Letters to the Editor *<  Mu9���um needs  Editor:  The Museum of Northern  British Columbia, in Prince  Rupert, is currendy in the process of re-organizing exhibits  within the museum building.  Part of this re-organization  involves the creation of a new  display area centered around  the Grand Trunk Pacific and  Canadian National Railroads.  Prince Rupert, as the Pacific  terminus for the G.T.P.,  from 1914 to 1921, and the  C.N.R., after 1921, owes a  significant part of its development to these companies.  With this in mind, we are  attempting to obtain items  that will  help to illustrate  the historical importance of  these railroads. In particular,  we are searching for articles  such as tools, switching and  signal lamps, office equipment and furniture, old tickets, promotional posters and  pamphlets, telegraph equipment, clothing from this early  period (including hats, coats,  shirts, pants, boots), photographs or any other items that  could be used in preparing  displays.

Phone:624-3207  Gratifying  Editor:  When a large number of  residents of the Sunshine  Coast confronted B.C.Hydro  in the Community Hall at  Madeira Park over the 'Battle  of the Bulge' on Saturday  March 31st, it was gratifying  to see the whole community  blending their talents to  present a strong, unified 'NO'  to the proposed Cheekeye-  Dunsmuir 500 double Kilovolt  transmission line.  Vivian Cowell  Iris Griffith  Evans Hermon  Solveigh Harrison  Sylvia Woodworth  Ratepayers defend Pender dump  Harrison   fights   closure   of  Pender Damp.  When is a referendum not  a referendum? "When the Regional Board tries to prearrange the result by giving  the voters no choice," says  Joe Harrison. "That's what  they have in mind by closing  the Pender Dump."  Harrison is referring to the  upcoming compulsory garbage collection referendum  imposed by the Regional  Board at its last meeting.  The Regional Board will be  pressing for closure of the  Pender Harbour Dump at  its meeting on April 19th.  The recommendation reads,  "That the Gibsons, Halfmoon  Bay and Pender Harbour  waste disposal sites be closed  and fenced off, that containers  be placed at the three sites  and at other strategic locations  in each community to assess  their use. The Board is  also recommending setting a  charge at the sites for commercial and industrial wastes  and for domestic wastes  over two bags.  "Outrageous" says Director Joe Harrison and we are  sure many Peninsula residents  will agree with him. Harrison  sees no difficulty with the  present set-up. "The proposed changes will cost us  more, be very inconvenient  and will prove unworkable."  adds Harrison.  To begin with the present  Pender site is perfectly good  and with Pender's small  volume of 4.5 tons per week,  it will last for many years.  An on-site inspection by  Harrison and knowledgeable  ratepayers indicates plenty  of fill and alternate disposal  areas free of ground water.  Present arrangements in  Pender Harbour include a  private pick-up service rup  by Danny Leech's Pender Harbour Disposal Service.  He is well known for his  personal service to his customers particularly the elderly  for whom he provides service  to the door. Well known  resident Gordon Liddle says,  "We are well satisfied with  our present service and we  don't want any change  unless we are assured of  something better at reasonable cost. The Press reports indicated Director  Harrison was opposed to a  Referendum. Closing the  dump first casts a different  light on it."  We agree with Mr. Liddle.  A referendum on garbage  collection service after closing  the Pender Dump site would  leave no real choice to the  Pender residents since  (a) Leech would probably  be out of business and (b)  residents would have to pay  for trucking waste to Sechelt  or take it themselves.  This point was not lost on  some Direcotrs who are  anxious to have Area A  included in garbage collection  to share increasing costs in  Sechelt and points South.  Area A assessment of 17  million at just under one fifth  of the tax base is an attractive plum and it is no secret  that some Directors want  Area A to share their costs  even if it inconveniences  Pender residents. Local  marine operator, Peter  Benjafield, puts it this way.  "Marinas need service two  or three times weekly in the  summer and practically not  at all in the winter. Summer  residents and weekenders  don't want to leave garbage  for mid-week collection.  We have a perfectly good  service. Let's leave it that  way."  "We don't mind paying  our share,"says Harrison,  "and  with   one  millraising  Sl 7,000 dollars in Pender  Harbour, we are more than  paying the costs of our site.  If there is any cost problem  at all, it's because they  truck an operator and cat up  here from Sechelt every week  instead of using local men  and equipment." Adds  Harrison "If they think  costs are high now, wait till  they pay for 50 mile round  trips to Sechelt and extra  charges for commercial and  industrial wastes. Have you  ever tried to put an old  fridge in a container?"  The Regional Board has  just received a bill for $11,000  for a study of incineration.  Technical inaccuracies in  the report led the Board to  abandon incineration as  economically unfeasible.  The previous Dayton & Knight  report indicated that trucking  wastes to a central site  near Sechelt would escalate  costs from $4.50 per ton to  well over $20.00 - a fivefold  increase. Director Lee correctly points out that escalating energy costs for petroleum fuels make trucking on  50 mile or more round trips  uneconomic.  Lockstead from  The report of the Select  Standing Committee on Agriculture has come under heavy  criticism from N.D.P. members on the Committee and  from the press.  After spending $3 million  of the taxpayers' money the  Committee has presented the  Legislature with simply a  Social Credit party statement.  The N.D.P. members of  the Committee did not have a  chance to see the final report  nor did they vote on it. These  democratic niceties aside,  every person who cares about  future supplies of food for  B.C. has just cause for anxiety over the report.  The recommendations of  the Social Credit members  would effectively dismantle  the Agricultural Land Reserve. Although the report  gives praise to the concept of  agricultural land preservation  it recommends that agricultural land must come under  a land use policy which accommodates other sectors of  the economy.  In the Committee's own  words, "...non-agricultural  land uses should be provided  on agricultural lands where  practical alternatives are not  available..." In plain English,  if we need a parking lot and  the only land cheap enough to  provide for it is agricultural  land, then the land should be  paved.  The recommended terms of  exclusion for the ALR are so  broad that essentially anything that pays better than  farming could qualify. A factory or a shopping centre both  provide more jobs than  farming, therefore land should  be used for them. Using this  rationale most of the Fraser  Valley and the Okanagan  Valley would cease agricultural production.  It was with this threat in  mind that the N.D.P. introduced the Agricultural Land  Reserve. While in Opposition, Social Credit members  fought the idea tooth and  nail, but soon learned the  idea was popular with the  people and came to pay lip  The ratepayers suggest  that bi-monthly pick-ups  with compulsory sorting will  generate the least amount  of waste. Experience in  other areas of the province has  shown that domestic separation of glass, metal and  burnables, allows easy transfer to re-cycling where economically feasible. It also  encourages home composting  and discouragement of the  throw-away consumer mentality.  Further, the use of several  small decentralized land  fill sites although not without  difficulty are best for all  concerned. Lastly, we feel  that the Regional Board  should not be seeking to  generate more waste by  extending garbage collection  to areas that do not request  the service. Referendums  designed to eliminate any  real choice by the.voters da  not improve the Regional  Board's credibility. The pre-1  sent philosophy seems to be  to generate as much garbage  as possible so we can justify  the most exotic solution,"  says Harrison.  Victoria  service to the Reserve. Now  in government, they have  used the Committee to under-  mind the Reserve and to assist  developers.  The N.D.P.'s position on  agricultural land remains the  same as in 1973. Agricultural  land cannot be compared with  other types of land. In producing that most basic commodity, food, its value goes  beyond short term dollars.  It is our assurance against  shortage or dependence  on   foreign   supplies.  The Socred Standing Committee on Agriculture has produced a report that mortgages our future to developers. It cost the people of B.C.  more than $40 a word, some  $3 million in total. It is a  political scandal ��� nothing  less.

Telephone    4854831, POWELL RIVER Sweat a Hard Cargo     Part VI  There was no shortage of  colourful characters working  the docks in this period and  many were nicknamed for one  trait or another ��� Horsethief  Ford, The Knife-Carver,  Nannygoat, Flarfoot Coote,  Tango Dan, Moose Johnson,  Coalheaver Smith, Coffee  An' Joe ��� the list is endless.  One of the most frequently-  mentioned is Bobby Ray who  was dubbed The Terrible Turk  because of his hairtrigger  temper. The Turk liked to play  thc ponies but was a notoriously poor loser. Once, at the  hiring-hall, word came to him  that a longshot he'd failed to  bet had come in first and paid  off handsomely. "Some sonofabitch is crazy and its me I"  he shouted and struck  himself on the forehead so  energetically, he was knocked  unconscious. There was Old  Bill, the waterboy, a burned  out docker reduced to running  errands for the gangs and  Wimpy who, whenever it  rained, would simply down  tools and go home. Considering the moist character  of much B.C. weather, he  must have missed a lot of  days. Among the brass, there  were the One-Eyed Gunner,  another ex-Army major and  Frozenface McDermott, a  notably miserable supervisor.  Then there were the numerous  skidroad characters such as  Seagull Patsy, the bagpicker,  who simply hung about the  dockside area.  Some men were distinguished  by their infirmities. One  such was Shorty Leonard, a  fiercely-proud cripple who  could sometimes barely drag  himself to sork but would  curtly refuse any offers of  help. Despite his bad legs, he  managed to pull his weight  in the hold. Joe Stoutenberg  recalls that he once took after  a man with a baling-hook  over some real or imagined  insult. Another man who prevailed over disability was  Charlie Chatters who had lost  his right hand in some forgotten accident and carried a  permanent hook. Alec Wills  remembers him struggling  up ladders to board ships  in-ballast that were riding  too high in the water to use the  gangplanks, trying to manipulate both his shovel and his  Pages  from a Life-Log  Peter Trower  lunch and somehow succeeding. It is a tribute to the courage of such men that they  chose to compete with the  able-bodied dockers rather  than take charity. Both  Stoutenberg and Wills worked  next to Chatters through many  long shifts on the grain and  both recall the persistent  click of his hook on the shovel  It became, as Alec says, "a  sort of Chinese water-torture  after awhile."  With the onset of tht  Depression, things grew it  possible, even worse and a  new militancy began to emerge ' among the longshoremen. The company union  underwent a gradual transformation. The sycophants  were ousted and replaced by  men of conscience, totally  dedicated to reform. The exploitation and oppression of  the dockworkers ��� indeed,  of all workers ��� must somehow be brought to an end. In  1934 the longshoremen united  with the seamen and other  maritime workers under a  common banner ��� the Longshoremen and Water Transport Workers of Canada.  By the spring of 1935, every  port on the coast had been  organized and was either  affiliated to the LWTWC or  closely allied. The Seafarer's  Industrial Union became  linked with the new organization and several minor strikes  were successfully fought  and won. The Federation  was by no means unaware of  these developments and was  busily setting its repressive  gears in motion. Another  head-on collision was imminent.  The events that triggered  the waterfront's longest and  most vicious labour-dispute  began on May 17 at the  pulpmill town of Powell River  A union had been newly-  formed among the dock-  workers there and had taken  its demands for recognition  and wage-increases to the  Company officials. These  enlightened gentlemen had  replied in typical fashion by  locking-out the union-members and putting mill-hands to  scabwork the ships. The union  set up picket-lines in protest.  Their demonstrations were  ignored for a couple of weeks.  Then, in reponse to Company  complaints, the lines were  attacked by a contingent of  provincial police. In the ensuing fracas, the pickets  were dispersed and two strikers suffered injury. As  a direct result of this shabby  incident, longshoremen at  Vancouver and other ports,  labelled the Powell River  paper 'hot cargo' and refused  to unload it. The Shipping  Federation, an old hand at  dirty-dealing and doubtless  glad of this provocation to  whip the unionists back into  line, pulled essentially the  same tactics it had employed  twelve years earlier, locking-  out the sympathy-strikers  en-masse and ordering its  office-employees to unload  the ships. Again the docks  were guarded by armed goons  but this time they wore  police uniforms. Use of police  in this manner was a common  Depression practice, fully  sanctioned by Vancouver's  reactionary mayor, the redoubtable Gerry McGeer.  The bulk of the strikebreakers were quartered at  the Ballentyne Pier along with  a force of mounted police to  protect them and prevent  picketing. For the first couple  of weeks, there were only  scattered incidents of no  great moment. But the licked-  out dockers were growing  angrier by the day. On June  17, Ivan Emery, president of  the Longshoremen and  Transport Workers made the  following statement: "The  right to send a delegation to  thc dock is denied to the  union. In the War, many of us  faced the guns of the German  army. Now we are faced with  a squad of Mounties with  machine-guns behind them. 1  believe there are enough  returned men among us willing to listen to the rattle of  machine-gun fire again!"  There were indeed a good  number - at least a thousand  of them. Very likely, their  ranks included more than a  few who had marched on the  Longshoreman's    Hall    and  Lamb's Navy Rum.  When you mix it,  you don't lose it.  Lamb's full distinctive  flavour comes smoothly  through your mixer.  In fact. Lamb's unique  quality has made it known  round the world for more  , than 100 years.  0^  A  Labour Temple in the troubles  of 1918. They marched to  a different drummer now than  misdirected patriotism.  Perhaps the irony of it may  have occurred to one or two  of them as, on June 18, they  formed into rough ranks and  headed for Ballentyne Pier.  At their head was one of their  most popular members  Mickey O'Rourke who had  distinguised himself for bravery in the War and held a  Victoria Cross.This was a very  different sort of war he led  them into now. There was  some excited talk but for the  most part, the men moved  along their certain collision-  course in grim silence. They  reached the Alexander Street -  Heatley Avenue approaches  where they were met by a  solid phalanx of police armed  with tear-gas, clubs and  cocked guns. Vancouver  Police Chief W. W. Foster  ordered the strikers to disperse. The order was ignored.  Having come this far, the men  were determined that theit  case should be heard. Foster  didn't waste time arguing but  ordered the tear-gas fired.  Then he set his cossacks on  the coughing, half-blinded  crowd.  It was an exercise in brutality unparallelled on the waterfront before or since, today,  they would have been said  to have 'over-reacted' but that  is far too-polite a term to  describe the sadistic behavior  of the horsemen. They galloped through the crumbling  ranks of the longshoremen,  swinging their clubs with  ruthless efficiency. Some fell  bleeding from bone-cracking  blows; the rest broke and ran  for whatever refuge they could  find, hotly pursued by the  relentless cavalry of the Establishment. It was a total rout  through the streets and back-  lanes of the east-end. The  police rode right to the steps  of many old houses in the  neighbourhood, in total disregard for the women and  children gathered there.  They did not have it entirely  their own way. There was  considerable rearguard action  among the rundown wooden  buildings and rocks and bottles whistled through the air,  sometimes finding a uniformed target. The right-wing  Province newspaper reported  the tenements to be crowded  with spectators who howled  with glee when a policeman  was hit and while this statement contained a large element of truth, it was intended  to sustain the impression that  the police were quelling a  'communist-inspired' disorder. It was the common  justification for police barbarism during the Depression.  Such pap was scant excuse for  the events of that day, called  "the bloodiest in waterfront  history." Having succeeded in  injuring at least twenty-eight  people, including a bystander  who was hit in the leg by a  sawed-off shotgun blast from  a prowl-car, the police descended on the Longshoremen's Hall where a first-aid  post had been set up by the  Women's Auxiliary. They  smashed the windows and  hurled tear-gas bombs inside  in a culminative act of pointless cruelty. Twenty-four  people were arrested in the  aftermath of the riot. At  least one of these, Harold  Maides, charged with assaulting an officer, was beaten  Cellist Anthony Elliott was the guest artist at the  first of the Countryside Concerts held last weekend.  First concert  in series  By Allan J. Crane  An audience of 57 adults  and nine children were delighted with the first concert  in the Countryside Concert  series given by Anthony  Elliott, 'cello, and Susan Elek,  piano in the lunch room at  Elphinstone Secondary School  this Sunday, April 8 at 2 p.m.  The programme commenced  with three movements from  Bach's Suite in D minor for  unaccompanied 'cello. Mr.  Elliott was playing a 'cello  made by David Tecchler in  1703 which formerly belonged  to the Duke of Edinburgh,  and its rich, warm tone was  heard to good effect in this  music. The second item on  the programme was Beethoven's A Major Sonata for  'cello and piano, Opus 69,  and the programme concluded  with Brahms' Sonata for  'cello and piano, Opus 38.  Mr. ElKott gave a brief introduction to each item before  its performance, and this was  an additional treat for the audience. In introducing the  Bach Suite, Mr. Elliott  paid tribute to the late, great  'cellist Pablo Casals who did  so much to introduce Bach's  'cello music to the public  fifty years ago. It was, he said,  a great honour to be able  to play music of the three  great "B's" on one programme.  Mr. Elliott quoted from contemporary critics who termed  Beethoven's music, "crass,  hideous, discordant and unin-  tellible." Brahms was termed  "the biggest bluffer of the  century" by Hugo Wolf,  composer of many songs,  while another critic said that  Brahms seems to have to force  music out of his brain as if by  hydraulic pressure." History  has repudiated the critics,  and a hundred or so years  later Brahms'music is univer-  savagely in the cells. "Vancouver will no longer tolerate  communist-agitators who incite to riot and the port will  remain open for trade!"  trumpetted the labour-hating  Gerry McGeer in a later  press-statement.  sally known while Hugo Wolf  is known only to specialists.  The performances were  most pleasing. A fine balance  between the instruments was  obtained except for a short  passage in the finale of the  Brahms'piece where the piano  rather overpowered the 'cello.  There was good empathy  between the two musicians in  the performances of the Beethoven and Brahms sonatas,  and the playing was sensitive  and musicianly.  The lunch room at Elphinstone is unsuitable for musical  performances although it is  preferable to gymnasia.  Acoustically it is totally lifeless, and it is certainly to  be deplored that there does  not exist in Gibsons, or anywhere else on the Sunshine  Coast for that matter, a  suitable place for performances such as this series  of concerts.  Community  TV   By Kelly Henry  The addition of a video  studio to the school will bring  some welcomed changes.  Video tapes may be used in  the classes as teacher aides.  Within two or three years,  classes might be able to make  their own video tapes as  class projects.  The Log Construction class  plans to create programmes  on the building of notches.  From this, students can see  where they're making mistakes, and correct them  quickiy. English classes might  perform plays for the cameras.  Eventually, some  tapes on conversation could  'be made to teach others.'  The auto mechanics class are  presently preparing a programme on the pros and cons of  nuclear power.This will be  presented at the forum on  Community T.V., which will  be held on April 21 and 22.  School uses of the video  equipment will not come  about for at least another year,  but the Communications 11  class has made a start in  showing what can be done.

Book review  Beowulf revisited  By John Mo  John Gardner's Grendel,  as novels go, is an unlikely  candidate for the big leagues.  Literary takeoffs and in-jokes,  which is what Grendel, to a  large extent, is, seldom  transcend their own momentarily entertaining peculiarity.  1 have no doubt that Grendel  will join other such works in  the obscurity which most of  them deserve, in spite of  Gardner's growing stature as  an American novelist, but before it does I'd like to get my  two-bits worth in.  Gardner has fashioned the  protagonist of this unusual  little story from the villain of  the Anglo-Saxon poem  Beowulf which, though it  concerns much older events  when the Teutonic tribes were  still confined to the European  continent, is commonly regarded as the first work of  "English" literature. The  Beowulf story is ancient and  archetypal. Hrothgar, King of  the Scyldings, or Spear-  Danes, builds a great hall in  which to entertain his warriors  and generally show off his  wealth and power, but before  long a shadow comes upon  the hall in the form of Grendel, the fen-stalker, the night-  walker, the moor-wanderer,  the grim spirit, the Werewolf,  The Thing That Goes Bump  In The Night. Manlike but  monstrous, Grendel repeatedly breaks into the hall  at night and tears sleeping  warriors to pieces, bolting  the bits like so many canapes,  The poet who composed the  Beowulf poem was apparently  an early convert to Christianity, for he characterizes Grendel as a "son of Cain", a  member of the mythical pre-  Flood race eternally cursed by  their descent from the world's  first murderer. Grendel never  really emerges as a character  in the old poem; he remains a  kind of natural force, the  incarnation of'the traditional  Norse view of the environment as essentially hostile and  the personification of the dark  bestiality from which Hrothgar and his people are struggling to emerge. In due time,  Beowulf, a warrior of the  Geats, turns up with his  friends and, after an  exchange of courtesies,  geneologies, boasts and  insults, settles down to tangle  with the monster. Since Grendel is charmed against  swords, Beowulf uses his  vaunted strength to tear off  his arm. Following the blood  spoor to the creature's lair,  a subterranean grotto, he finishes the job, killing Grendel's  foul mother and a few fire-  snakes for good measure. He  retires to become King of the  Geats and to die in old age,  sword in hand, like a good  warrior, killing a dragon who  has taken up residence in his  kingdom.  Gardner's Grendel is everything he has always been;  bloodthirsty, cruel and rapacious, but he is much more;  he is the embodiment of the  soul-deadening nihilism in  which a skeptical materialist  view of the universe ultimately  finds itself mired. He sees  the universe as a kind of blind,  brutal and purposeless part in  it. for Hrothgar and his  people, whose attempts to  rise out of primeval darkness  are a reproach to the faint  strain of humanity in him. He  delights in their relapses into  barbarity, their treachery,  their greed, their periodic  surrender to bloodlust and  love of gratuitous destruction.  Whenever they seem to be  overcoming their own worse  nature he descends upon them  to teach them an object  lesson. He is able to ridicule  everything about them; their  gods, (he even masquerades  as one of the gods with hilarious results), their nonsense  about heroism and glory, (he  deflates one "hero" by pelting him with apples), everything, that is, except the sad  beauty of the young queen  married to the aging Hrothgar  for political purposes and the  poetry sung by the one he  calls "the Shaper". The  Shaper's songs torment him  by seeming to bring order,  meaning and beauty to the  struggles of these despicable  little hypocrites.  Wandering through the  gloomy northern landscape  that is such an integral part  of the original myth, Grendel  is driven to seek advice from  a cantankerous dragon who  bores him with philosophical  doubletalk and confirms his  nihilistic view of the universe.  The dragon is practically immortal and claims to see not  only the whole of the past  and present, but the whole of  the future as well. "Illusion",  he says of the Shaper's songs;  the universe is nothing but an  infinite succession of irrevocable predetermined accidents  with no meaning and no purpose. Even his own case; he  points out that though he is a  unique creature and the last of  his kind, it is his destiny to be  slain pointlessly by an insignificant man. (Foreshadowing  Beowulf's fatal encounter with  the dragon.)  Gardner's portrait of Beowulf is also remarkable. In  the old myth Beowulf is a  swaggering, completely fear  less, immensely strong stereotype of old Norse warrior  virtues. In Gardner's portrayal  his brute strength is a secondary, almost irrelevant characteristic. His real strength lies  in a kind of moral and philosophic toughness; an ability to  look reality square in the face  without flinching. He is detached, faintly amused, and  utterly ruthless. (Rather like  Clint Eastwood in Saxon  drag.) In their monumental  wrestling match in the dark,  he conquers Grendel not so  much by physical force as  by simply whispering the.  truth, relentlessly, in Grendel's unwilling ear ��� to the  effect that, yes, the universe is  merely a "Meaningless swirl  in the stream of time, a temporary gathering of bits, a  few random specks....Complexities: green dust, purple  dust, gold. Additional refinements: sensitive dust, copulating dust..."but it is the task  of mankind, guided by its visionaries, its illusionists, like  the Shaper, to give meaning to  the meaninglessness, to transform the illusions into realities. Grendel staggers away,  mortally wounded and obsolete, clutching at his old  beliefs to the end. The animals  of the forest gather to watch  him die, "Poor Grendel's  had an accident," he says  ironically, "So may you all."  Gardner makes no attempt  to make Grendel a "historical novel". It is no more  "historical" than the original  myth and is really an attempt  to modernize the myth.  The consciousness of his  characters is sometimes  absurdly and awkwardly modern, but the book is basically  unpretentious. It was never  intended to be a great novel,  and that enables it to succeed  in being a witty and entertaining variation on an ancient  theme; so much so that when  my much-loaned copy vanished into the oblivion that  awaits borrowed books, I  went out and bought another  at $1.95, from Ballantyne  Books.

Sechelt Garden Club  By Jack MacLeod  One of the reports at the  SEchelt Garden Club meeting  April 4, was that of Show  Manager Jack MacDonald,  who reported a record crowd  at the Spring Flower Show  March 31, and a most successful plant sale. Club members  and the visitors enjoyed the  vivid display of flowering  plants and cut flowers.  The club strives to show  specimens of the highest  quality and to introduce  some new varieties. For  example some new species of  camellia evoked special  interest.  In the summer, club members visit on a planned basis,  other members' gardens, and  one that is always of special  interest is the colourful show  of dahlias at the home of Alec  Ellis. With all the 'oohs' and  'ahs' and writing down of  variety names, the question  heard so often is "How does  he do it?" So Alec was invited to tell us at the monthly  meeting about his expertise.  Dahlias like a fairly rich  soil, so a hole is dug and the  soilwe" broken up. Add some  fully rotted manure and a,  tablespoon or so of bone meal.  A stake is put firmly in place,  Film Society  By Allan J. Crane  Tonight, commencing at  9.00 p.m., you can see Alain  Resnais' Providence which  features a veritable feast of  acting, particularly from John  Gielgud and Dirk Bogarde.  One of our members is going  to see this wonderful film for  a third time. The following  notes for the film were compiled by the Calgary Film  Society:  "In an interview Resnais  called Providence a "comedy  which uses certain jokes about  creativity." These jokes  are certainly there in the  scenes where Clive Langham  plays with the characters in  the process of writing a novel  about his family. But this film  is by no means just a comedy  about novel writing. It is a  work concerned with illusion  and reality, death and uncertainty. And it is, above all, an  attempt to come to grips with  life. As Resnais stated at another occasion, it is about an  elderly man who passes in  judgement the various members of his family only to dis  cover, like Oedipus, that it is  he who is the defendant in  this 'trial'.  "This film is about an old  and dying novelist, Give  Langham, who during a drunken and pain-wracked night  makes notes for a novel about  his family, toying with scenes,  characters and lines as they  come to mind. The real world  in this part of the film is represented only by Clive Lang-  ham's painful drunken scenes  during the night and by his  voice which hovers over the  imagined scenes involving his  family. Everything else, except for the final birthday  party scene, is the willed or  involuntary creation of the  novelist. He creates the characters as he sees them: his son  Claude as a cold, icily undemonstrative lawyer, his bastard son Kevin as a self-absorbed soldier who has shot a  wounded man as an act of  mercy. Claude the prosecutor  fails to convict Kevin, Langham sees Sonia, Claude's  wife, as completely without  personality, who is just beginning to have some sense of  her own self, Langham gives  Claude some of his own identification marks (white wine  bottle) but it is Kevin with  whom he identifies. This identity is necessary for Claude's  shooting of Kevin to have a  greater complexity than just  jealousy (Sonia being drawn  to Kevin). Claude hates his  father, whom he to some degree blames for the death of  his mother, who committed  suicide when she learned she  had incurable cancer. When  Claude kills Kevin, he in a  sense kills his father. But,  in a further twist, Langham  provides Caude with a mistress (Helen) who resembles  Claude's mother (Molly).  "The plot described above  is not represented in any  order. The film is, among  other things, about the process of creation. So, Langham  starts scenes, restarts them,  changes location, and sometimes he shifts lines from one  character to another; or he  simply creates a what-if-  game: the football player who  jogs in and out of Providence  is there primarily for the scene  in which he hits Caude in the  mouth.  1st Annual Spring - Summer "SHOPPING SPREE"  The Rainbow's End  Boutique  formerly Downtown Roberts Creek, now relocated on Tyson Rd.

Plant the tuber horizontally, with the eye near  the stake. Cover with soil,  and carefully press down  the earth. The top of the hole  should be slightly lower than  the surrounding area to hold  the moisture. Dahlias need  much water.  To get a more bushy plant,  pinch out the top growth when  6 to 8 leaves appear. If the  grower wants as much colour  as possible in his garden,  let every bud come into flower, but if a few large flowers  are wanted, nip off 2 out of  every 3 buds.  People like dahlias, so do  slugs I As soon as shoots begin  to show through the ground,  put some slug bait around  them. As the plants begin  to grow, some chemical  dusting might be required to  control hungry pests.  The plants should be fertilised at the end of June,  July and August, with 4-12-4.  Our recent cold winter has  played havoc with many  bulbs. Those left in the  ground, or in unhealed sheds,  can almost certainly be put  ���  on the casualty list. Lifting  and dividing dahlia tubers  should be carefully considered  in the Fall.

Exciting possibilities in Community TV  Students eyes opened on  trip  By Maryanne West  A group of teenagers got  together with Bill Wilkinson,  Programme Director for  Community Television  lor Powell River Cablevision  Ltd. and made a movie which  was shown on VCable 10.  It concerned the universal  problem of a high school gra  duate surrounded by so many  choices and finding it difficult to decide just what to do.  The hero sought advice from  his contemporaries and thus  explored some of the things  young people are opting for.

We found exciting ideas  percolating inside the ordinary  concrete block building which  houses the small studio a  stone's throw away from the  main drag in"beautiful  downtown" Westview, as  well as bread  and butter fare.  Bill made us welcome,  apologising for what he felt  we might think was an untidy  operation by explaining that  they were still recovering  from a day-long televised  auction which taxed all the  small station's resources, an  annual event to raise funds for  the Powell River Band.  Brian, who with others of  the Elphinstone technical  crew had spent many hours  during the holiday editing  tapes, improvising and  practising to increase the  technical quality of his work  with the school's old manual  equipment, was thrilled with  the electronic editing machines in the control room.  Orderly rows of push buttons  which quietly reverse or  forward tape at a touch,  hold one tape until the other  is synchronised and ensure  clean, sharp cut-ins and outs,  and open up all sorts of exciting possibilities.  Someone came in with a  public service message and  Bill was delighted to show  us his new computer terminal  which types up messages  directly onto the screen. It  zaps out-dated messages and  back-tracks smartly to correct  a spelling mistake. Neatl  Powell River uses two channels for its community programming, messages on one  and the telex news service on  the other and four evenings  S week community programming.  This of course has fdeve-  loped from small beginnings.  In fact much of the electronic  wizardry has been added  during the last year in response to a growing audience.  Community television is  inevitably a very personal  and intimate use of the  medium,      reflecting     the  character, needs and personality of the people it serves and  those who volunteer time and  skills to get programmes  on the air.  Bill has only been working  as a full time programme director for a year, but for over  two years he has done a  weekly interview with someone who aspires to excellence  in the development of hs/her  creative talents, whether it  be making violins, skating or  quilt making. He says the area  is alive with interesting people  and each one he talks with  tells him of several others.  We didn't have time to sit  down and view full length  programmes and anyway Bill,  too, was busy with a volunteer  editing programming for that  night but we did see snippets  of a number of different  types of programmes; all  manner of ways Cable 10 can  share the information a  communtiy generates; helpful  hints for handymen; do-it-  yourself repairs; insulation;  avoiding firehazards with  that new wood stove; specials  for Library Week etc. The  Martha Graham Dance group  had recently been in town  performing to packed  houses, their success in part  perhaps due to the  perhaps due to the pre-view  coverage on Cable 10.  I suspect Bill rarely goes  anywhere without his precious  portapak colour camera  within easy reach. Obviously  in love with his community,  its beautiful setting and the  potential of television to  enhance the quality of life in  Powell River, he is carefully  accumulating a record of  people at work and play, their  joys and sorrows, their  achievements and what needs  \%P Sand & Gravel    ��/v  v Eves: 886-2652 %  SWANSON'S  READY-MIX LTD.  ���^MOnmy-  Eves: 885-2954  SWANSON'S  EXCAVATING LTD.

We were interested in an  experiment which uses  television for background  programming, a different  sort of relaxation. Bill had  made two programmes around  natural themes which have  been well received, one featuring the sea in all its moods  and die other filmed along the  river - no intrusive human  voice mouthing platitudes,  but appropriate musical  accompaniment.  The movie made by teenagers, mentioned earlier and  called "Out of Focus",  involved some pretty sophisticated techniques possible  with the computerized equipment and some exciting experimentation in the creation  of illusions, but it undoubtedly  served a more serious purpose; important to the young  of being able to explain to the  adults in their community  how the world looks to them  and how they feel about it.  The discussions the showing  of the film provoked and the  whole exercise must have  been a worthwhile learning  experience.  It was interesting and  exciting for us to see what  is being done in Powell  River even though comparisons should't be made too  readily. Their cable system  for example is not only  larger but more compact than  ours, and we can't expect,  any more than they did, to  start community programming  fully6 fledged with all that  expensive equipment. How  programming develops, or  if it will, depend on the time  and talent we are prepared  to devote to it.  Maybe you'll say, "Who  needs it?" or"We'll wait a  few years until the cable  company has to provide it"  but we hope the fun we've  had breaking trail will catch on  and you 'II want to get involved  too.

Three potters will be showing recent work: Angus  Grant of Vancouver with a  collection of mat-glazed  pottery, Elaine Futterman  of Sechelt with a variety  of ware including small  vases, planters, butterdishes etc. and Cindy Kirk  of Roberts Creek who has  some unusual bottles as  well as useful and functional bowls and cannisters.

Rose McLaren is spinning  a supply of natural wool for  sale by the ounce and will  also take orders for her work.

Ambitious drama  By Maryanne West  Sunday at 8:30 p.m.the first  part of CBC's most ambitious  project, a three hour movie  recreating the excitement and  the drama of conflicting personalities which surrounded  the life of Louis Riel, leader  of the prairie Metis in the  Northwest Rebellions of 1870  and 1885. Part II will be telecast on Tuesday at 8:30 p.m.  and carried on Channels  2 and 6.  Starring Raymond Cloutier  in the title role and Christopher Plummer as Sir John A.  MacDonald the film tells  its story on a huge canvas encompassing the rough hewn  headquarters of Riel's pro-  visionary government at  Fort Garry, the halls of power  in Ottawa, the battlefields  of Fish Creek, Duck Lake and  Batoche and the Regina  courtroom where Riel was  tried.  Among all the pages of promotional material, how many  actors, producers, extras  there were, all their credentials and who thinks what  about whom there was a piece  about Doug Wardle and the  special effects crew's efforts  to make the battle scenes  authentic which I found most  interesting. Some 250 rifles  of the proper vintage, hand  guns, cartridges and gun powder and a rapid-fire Gatling  gun, forerunner of the machine gun,were needed to outfit the troops, mounted police  and Metis with firearms.  Tracking down a Gatling  gun was a major project,  the Canadian War Museum  had one but it was the wrong  type, with a round magazine  instead of a stick magazine.  The Glenbow Foundation in  Saskatchewan had one but  wouldn't loan it. Finally  through the Ford Museum in  Dearborn, Michigan, Wardle  was put in touch with a father  and son in Clinton, Ohio,  who specialize in building  working replicas for gun  collectors. They had a Gatling  and would rent it.  Next problem, how to get it  into Canada? The Gatling is  considered to be a fully  automatic weapon and thus a  no-no to import, but the law  describes a fully automatic  weapon as one which can  be fired continuously by one  pull of the trigger, but the  Gatling doesn't have a trigger,  it's fired by turning a crank,  so a permit was obtained.  Next problem was the cartridges which would feed properly into the stick magazine  were unobtainable, so it was  only possible to load seven  barrels at a time. This meant  the scenes had to be done in  a series of edits, the soldier  firing would crank and fire,  then the film stopped while he  could reload ��� a slow process  but you will see it operating  properly with sustained rapid  fire.  All the other firearms were  found in Canada, the Winchester Arms Co. of Coburg  had 15 operable replicas  of Winchesters; Proparm Ltd.  of Chambly had more, Radio  Canada in Montreal had 50  12 gauge rifles from an earlier  production, the Canada War  Museum had 40 operating reproductions of muzzle-loading  flint-locks made for the centennial celebrations in 1967.  A special rifle was made for  Gabriel Dumont modelled  after an authentic photograph of the General with his  single shot rifle.  On "battle days'Wardle and  his crew were first at the site  and last to leave. All the guns  had to be cleaned and oiled  each night and reloaded with  precious brass custom made  cartridges, which were retrieved after each scene.  Three cannons made to historical specifications were built  from wood, coated with fibre-  glass and mounted on authentic-looking carriages, loaded  with black gunpowder and  packed to produce the recoil  and smoke. Explosions in  the ground from cannon hits  were done by firing a mortar  controlled from a main detonator box and timed to the  actions of the combatants.  Debris thrown up by cannon  fire was light material, Fuller's earth, cork pieces and  peat moss.  Bullets hitting trees and  walls were done with explosive charges embedded in the  targets. For the human targets the charge was mounted  on a leather pad under the  actor's costume, in the arm,  leg, back, etc. On top of the  charge was a bag of glycerine  based (so it wouldn't freeze)  stage blood. The actor controlled the device with a trigger  concealed in his hand connected to batteries under his  uniform.  "Throughout the entire  filming we didn't have one  mishap with explosives and  we didn't lose one gun,"  Wardle reports with pride.

This time the event commenced at 12.30 with a smor-  gasborg luncheon featuring  meat loaf, ham, devilled  eggs, several salads, buns  and other good eats, followed  by ice cream with strawberry  topping, and if this was not  enough, a birthday cake  appeared to honour Ave  members. Mr. Len Hornet  blew out the candles and the  following ladies cut the cake:  Mrs. Dorothy Bruce, Mrs. Lill.  Sear, Mrs. Lillian Thomas,  and Mrs. Margaret Crawford.  The President then thanked  the party convenor, Mrs.  Bessie Rowberry and her coworkers for providing such  an excellent meal.  After a one hour session of  "Bingo", the afternoon closed  with the usual activities of  carpet bowling, bridge, and  crib. Our team of eight  five-pin bowlers will continue  to meet with the Golden Age  group at the Gibsons Lanes for  its duration.

In meeting with Fisheries  Commercial Fisherman state case  Forty-three commercial  fishermen met with the  Southern Area Chief of the  Department of Fisheries,  Alan Gibsons, on April 2nd  to discuss proposed changes  for the 1979 salmon season  as introduced by the newly-  formed Pacific Region Fisheries Management Advisory  Council,  The fishermen present  stated their opposition to the  26 inch size limit which has  been proposed. They suggested the size limit should be  22 inch with a one-inch increase each year if improvements in the size of the fish  are shown. They felt that spot  closures were justifiable if  necessary for conservation  purposes.  The commercial fishermen  also felt that the four lines  limit proposed was acceptable  but that a limit of four gurdies  would create problems for  fishermen with eight gurdies  since gurdies are not made to  be easily removed if unwanted. They felt that the  treble hook should be banned  since this causes considerable  loss of immature salmon.  Another area of discontent  was with the July lst-Sept-  ember30th gear  restrictions  for gillnet trailers since the  restrictions punish gillnet  trailers who would normally  alternate during closures from  one type of gear to another.  A trailer gillnetter would not  face this restriction because  they mainly troll during  July to September on the  West Coast then they put  on a drum for giilnetting in  the fall  rictions.  avoiding any rest-  It was felt that seiners  should be restricted to a fixed  depth. The present proposal of  a fixed number of strips  os web could still allow deep  nets depending on how large  the mesh was used to make  the seine net.  The commercial fishermen  felt that sports fishermen  should have a licence and the  same size limit as commercial  boats. Area Chief Gibsons  stated that sports fishermen  were the most difficult to  educate to the need for  conservation measures.  The commercial fishermen  have a meeting planned with  M.P. Jack Pearsall at 1:00 pm  on Monday, April 9th.  VHF exams in Wilson Cr.  There were fifty-two candidates who wrote the operator's licence examination at  Wilson Creek Community Hall  on Friday, March 30th, at  7p.m.  Four members from the  Vancouver Department of  Communications conducted  the whirlwind written and oral  examinations with clockwork  precision as they had to  catch the 10.30 p.m. ferry  from Langdale. In their wake,  they left a group of anxious  people hopeful that they  would receive a certificate  in the near future. (A few  eager beavers obtained a hundred percent mark on their  written portion of the examl)  Anyone, who was unable to  take the examination and still  wishes to, may write to the  Department of Communica- times a week.

Police news  of the week  Gibsons Fire Chief Carl Horner is pictured by the  Fire Hall with the new Fire and Rescue truck just  purchased for the G.V.F.D.  The Coast News learned  from the Sechelt Detachment  of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police that Jacob Birza  of North Vancouver was sentenced to five years in prison  after a three day trial in Vancouver recently.

The conviction resulted  from charges laid by the police  in connection with an incident at the Madeira Marina  on August 9th when a woman  from the lower mainland was  assaulted by Birza when she  inadvertently entered the  men's shower room at the  Marina. Birza was out on bail  at the time facing a charge  of rape in North Vancouver  on which he was subsequently  convicted and sentenced to  four years in jail. The sentences are to run consecutively.  The' Sechelt Detachment  reported a quiet week. On  April 1st, wilful damage to  the Gospel Church on Davis  Bay Road was reported when  their sign was torn down.  Wilful damage was reported  on April 5th when the aerial  was ripped off a lady's 1978  Volkswagen automobile which  was parked outside Capilano  College on Wharf Street.  The theft of a picnic table  and chair valued at approximately $55 from a residence  on the Frances Peninsula was  also reported on April 5th.

He was born in Bolton, Lancashire, England in 1887 and came to Canada in 1910. He and  his brother John settled in Vancouver where they were employed by the Canadian Postal service. Their hobby of hiking  and mountaineering was avidly pursued in Canada, where they  climbed many peaks of the Coast range and the Selkirks of  Eastern B.C. and the Rockies of Alberta. Tom Fyles took many  groups of young people on climbing trips and became a recognized authority on rock climbing. He was a founding member  of the B.C. Mountaineering Club and a founder and honourary  life member of the Vancouver section of the Alpine Gub of  Canada. It was due to his efforts, together with those of about  three other people, that the Garibaldi Lake area was designated  a Provincial Park. In honour of his contribution to mountaineering in B.C., the Committee on Geographical Names re'  cently named a mountain near Bella Coola after him.  In 1922 he married Margaret Gladstone, a school teacher  from Victoria and they raised three sons. Their first son, John,  is the Co-ordinator of Northern Pipeline Development for the  Federal Department of Energy, Mines and Resources. Their  second son, James is Deputy Minister of Mines for B.C. and  their third son, David, is Chief Engineer with B.C. Ferries,  There are ten grandchildren and two great grandchildren. Mrs.  Fyles died several years ago.  Mr. Fyles was a strong supporter of Gibsons United Church.  He was an elder and member of the choir since moving here  {from Vancouver in 1954. Previously he was an elder and choir  member of St. George United Church in South Vancouver.  He had a great love for the mountains, the sea, the animals,  birds and the wild flowers of British Columbia, a legacy left to  his children and grandchildren.He was a true ecologist long  before that term had been thought of.

Minor Hockey finally  wrapped up these past two  weekends with a hockey  jamboree at Powell River  and trips to Gold River, Courtenay, and an all star atom  game in Sechelt.  At Powell River three teams  represented the Sechelt  Minor Hockey Association.  The Legion 109 Pee Wee  Team won one out of three  games, the Midget Credit  Union Rangers won two, lost  and tied one. And the Family  Mart Aces, Bantams, lost  all three games in a jamboree  featuring teams from The  Island, Powell River, and  Sechelt-Gibsons.  Last weekend three teams  travelled to The Island. Twin  Creek Pee Wees and G.T.  Bantams played three games  each at Gold River losing  three times each. The Midget  Rangers finished the season  in Courtenay playing two  games, winning one of them.  At the Arena an all star  team of Atoms split two close  games with Hope in two of the  finest games seen this  year, winning 5���4 and  losing 9���8.  April 20th is the big wrap  up with a Minor Hockey banquet at Gibsons Elementary  School starting at 7:00. We  have some of the Canucks  lined up as well as a sports  announcer from Vancouver.

Frank Sully of Vancouver  moved to Gibson's Landing  with his wife and son in 1939  and purchased the Winn Hall  building. Again there were  renovations and the premises  became known as Sully's  Cafe. In addition to renewing  foundation work, the Sully's  added a large verandah on  the waterfront side.    .  In 1945 Ernie Drew and  wife Mary purchased the Sully  Cafe, then following renovations, re-opened as the  Merry-Em Cafe, following an  addition to the premises by  enclosing the large verandah  to become part of the restaurant.  Later the Drews discontinued operation of this business. They built a partition  down the centre of the building. The half along Marine  Drive became the new premises of the Bank of Montreal.  Mrs. Fisher of Grantham's  Landing rented the waterfront section and opened up  her business premises,  Mariner Cafe.  Following the occasion of  the Bank of Montreal re-locating in their present premises, Marine Drive, their  vacated premises were rented  to Bill Tweedly from which he  operated a cafe for a period of  one year. During that time  period of late 1960, Walter  Nygren, local commercial  fisherman, purchased the  building from owner Mary  Drew. Walter opened a sales  service for both commercial  and sports fishermen, using  the trade name Walt Nygren  Sales Ltd., and which now  occupied the cafe section of  the building just vacated by  Mrs. Fisher ��� at which time  she moved to the Bal Block  and opened a delicatessen  business.  When ��� following a year,  in business ��� Bill Tweedly  closed shop, the premises  immediately became occupied  by Earle Bingley who transferred his stock from the small  one-time butcher shop at the  Howe Sound Trading Store,  where sales were previously  conducted. His sports goods  business was known as  Earle's Agencies.  Following a few years at this  location, Bingley sold his  business to Winston Robinson. Walter Nygren operated  in complete harmony with  both these businessmen. He  cut out a large opening from  the divisional wall so that  customers were privileged to  shop at random from one store  section to the other. It was  generally assumed that the  stock of each store was complementary to the other.  Also, Walter created a  working area beneath the  main floor which was used as  a shop, servicing outboard  motors, chain saws, lawn-  mowers, etc. Jimmie Sawyer  was first to rent this area,  followed by George Sawyer in  1966 (not related) and named  the business "Nuts & Bolts  Sales & Service".  Following a prolonged  illness Winston Robinson  was obliged to refrain from  continuence of his enterprise.  It was at this time, 1971, that  Richard Janowsky, Hs wife  and three sons, mtved to  Gibsons. He purchase! the  building from Walter  Nygren, also the merclandise,  including that of Robinson,  thus confining both lusines-  ses to one operation kiown as  Ail Sports Marine Inc.  As one concludes this  regime relative to this historic  buiding, surely no otter local  building has rendered itself  to so many uses.  However, returning briefly  to the pioneer Gibsons home-  site on which the iiuial part  of this building wis constructed, and following purchase of said property by  Charles P.Smith, trie road  structure through thecentre of  the pioneer's orchard was not  undertaken by the Municipality, in as much as it was  then non-existent. The construction project, thei subjected to a strong sense of protest, was conducted during  August 1927 by 'The Department of Public Worts', Victoria. Local foreman ii charge  was Clare Chamberlin  It may be concluded that,  without the reality of this  relatively short road, subdivision of the old Gibsoi home-  site by new owner C.P. Smith  could hardly have been  feasible without excessive  cost to himself.

Maybe it can be  salvaged. Next time you're  bored, go to a movie.  Dear Ann:  You frequently mention  nutrition, and say, stop  smoking and drink moderately ��� as a boost to well-being,  particularly for sex.  Well, what do you do if  you try to upgrade your life  and your mate won't go along  with you?  I tell him his body can't  handle all the fat in beef and  pork. It coats his arteries  inside like cottage cheese and  can cause heart attacks and  strokes. He just scoffs. I try  dishes with tofu, mushrooms,  bean sprouts and onions.  I use garlic and soy sauce for  flavouring. I find it delicious  and light with a green salad  and fruit. He says he's no  rabbit.

The annual convention  of the BCAHAwill be held  this year in the Hotel  Vancouver from May 30th to  June 1st. Gibsons Auxiliary  will be represented by the  President Joan Rigby and Secretary Pearl Dove.  The Lions Club will again be  holding their dinner meetings  at Harmony Hall and have  approached our Auxiliary to  cater for these functions  once a month. Their next  dinner meeting is scheduled  for April 24th which will  be convened by Veria Hobson,  assisted by Grace Jamieson,  Helen Wynhandl and Hilda  Lee.  We are looking forward,  with interest, to the Friendship Tea on April 19th in the  Roberts Creek Community  Hall for all the Auxiliaries  on the Sunshine Coast to St.  Mary's Hospital, with the  Gibsons ladies acting as  Hosts. Our guest speaker,will  be Mrs. Margaret Mac-  Pherson, President of the  BCAHA. She will be accompanied by Mrs. Verna Temoin,  Area Representative and the  Executive Secretary, Mrs.  A.D.

Final arrangements have now  been completed and it is  hoped that all our Auxiliary  members will make an extra  special effort to attend and  lend a helping hand where  a   Ways  Means   Com  mittee has been formed with  Verla Hobson as Chairman,  assisted by Phoebe Blomberg,  Vi Harris and Ida Leslie. We  will probably be hearing a lot  of weird and wonderful ideas  coming from this group for  fund raising projects. Good  luck gals.  Our next meeting will be  held on Wednesday May 2nd.

HI  ifc  *  t  sl  r  Wildlife  corner  By Ian Corrance  The group made use ol a makeshift raft to get ashore and off again when they  reached Iheir destination and found the ramp adrift.  Jervis Inlet  Eleven of us hardy souls  from the Marsh Society,  braved the wilds of Jervis  Inlet last Saturday.  Under the prod from Wayne  Diakow who, I'm convinced,  thinks that the best time of  the day is two hours before  dawn, we gathered at Madeira  Park, checked our emergency  supplies (binoculars, cameras,  cigarettes, and Sarah Lee  cream cakes), and off down to  the boat.  As we left Pender five  bald eagles were off to one  side, greves were popping up  around us, and the coffee was  percolating on the stove.  I think the coffee was the one  I was watching most.  Agamemnon Channel was  pretty good for bird life,  marbled merrelets, rednecked greves, eagles,  gldeneyes and such, and  Wayne was pretty sure that  he saw a couple of common  murres in winter plumage.  When he tallied up at the end  of the day, he had sightings  of 33 species - not bad for one  SPCA neutering operation  And this was the destination, Chatterbox Falls at  the head of Princess Louisa Inlet.  Fishing Tips from  the Wharfinger  By Gary White  Now io explain why all this  stuff works. The rods recommended are long and soft with  short handles. The length  adds strength and keeps the  herring away from one another. The handles are short  so you can hold the rod in  front of you.  It is advisable to square  your body to the fish as they  have a tendency to get loose if  you play them behind your  back.  The Diawa reels not only  hold a lot of line but they also  retrieve line very fast, allowing you to catch up to a salmon steaming up to the surface. If money is no object  buy hardy lonstongs. They  are the best. Charter boat  line is inexpensive and one  spool will cover the reel  nicely, even with backing.  Line stretches, chaffs and  rots so I change mine every  si.\   months   and   it   doesn't  cost an arm and a leg.  The hooks can be bought  anywhere and are strong and  stay sharp. To sharpen new  hooks stroke your stone down  the outside face of the hook.  You don't have to make a  point ��� it should be able to  stick to your hand.  The knots I use don't  slip or stretch and can be  chaffed without losing too  much strength. Also you can  trim them closely.  The depth (near the bottom)  springs can always be caught  on the bottom, but in the early  morning or late evening, they  can be very near the surface. Experiment.  Seatbeltfc  The matter of seat belts for  school buses was tabled until  the April 26 meeting of the  School Board, as no progress  has been made and no further  recommendations have been  received  What Is the Problem?  Man is presently faced with  the great challenge of reducing the tremendous animal  over-population dilemna.  Millions of dogs and cats  are humanely destroyed  annually in Public Pounds  and Humane Society Shelters  because there are not enough  homes. Join us in our battle  against surplus breeding,  cruelty and neglect. Have  your pet spayed or neutered.  You '11 be glad you did.  Every day of the year,  thousands of homeless and  unwanted dogs and cats  are humanely put to death.  Over 79,000 dogs and cats  must be destroyed yearly  in Vancouer. Why? Simply  because there are too few  homes for the thousands  of puppies and kettens born  yearly. In an endeavour to  help subside the rising tide  of surplus animals, the  Vancouver Regional Branch  Animal Medical Clinic has  been established. The primary  purpose of the Clinic is to  provide spaying and neutering  services at the lowest cost  possible, in order to encourage people to have their  pets spayed or neutered.  In addition, the staff will  monitor the care of Society  animals, administer disease  prevention innoculations,  and care for sick and injured  animals. The Medical Clinic  is not open to the general  public for any reason other  than spaying or neutering.  Consult your private veterinarian for any emergency,  illness, or routine examination  for your pet.  What   Exactly   Is   a   Spay  Operation?  A spay operation is performed by a qualified veterinarian and should pose no  major threat to a normal  female dog or cat, who has  experienced good health  and correct care. The most  commonly employed surgical  technique is removal of both  ovaries, both uterine horns,  and a portion of the uterine  body. This operation is usually  done after four months of age.  | See our j  j Bargain Shelf  for good buys  NDP Bookstore J  POWER OUTAGE  I hese interruptions in Electric Service are essential to enable us to up-grade our Distribution System which will allow us to accommodate future load growth.

What Is the Neutering  Operation?  The surgical technique  employed by most veterinarians is the removal of  both testicles by means of an  incision on the scrotum.  Because of the exterior  location of a normal male's  reproductive organs, opening  the cat s or dog's abdomen is  not necessary.  Will Spaying Destroy  May  Pet's Appearance?  Exercise and a proper diet  will keep your pet attractive  and active; thus, it is impossible even for a veterinarian  to tell if a cat or dog is spayed  by simply looking at it.  Female dogs normally come  into season only twice a year.  During this time, their ovaries  produce female hormones.  The rest of the year their  ovaries are not active. In a  sense, animals are physiologically "spayed" most of  the time. This is the reason  a male dog will not normally  pursue a female except when  whe is in heat.

A quick stop at a  rock bliff below Earls Cove  gave ui a chance to see  some In ian rock paintings.  The p rpose of the trip was  to see as much wildlife  as possit e, nip in through the  channel t Malibu, have a look  at Chatterbox Falls, and then  on the ��y back see if we  could elt our way through  all the food everyone had  overstocked up on.  On thi way up we had the  added tonus of spotting (by  my court) 13 mountain goats,  1 black tear and 3 seals,plus  a good viriety of sea birds.  The hmour for spotting the  first go* goes to old hawk  eye, Peer Gordon. He was  studying a rock slide through  his binctulars, when one of  the rocta got up and walked  away, within a few moments  all the classes were trained  on the iliff faces, and goats  were appearing everywhere.  Once onthe mountain we were  able to tick out ten of them.  ; The] establishment at  Malibu is  something  else.  Intelligence,  Personality,  or  Disposition?  Absolutely not.

Noise nuisance and  damage on both public and  private property have been  reported. In most cases, these  complaints refer to what are  known as trail bikes which  have straight-through exhausts and are usually uninsured. This sort of nuisance  is not confined to the Sechelt  area, and the Coast News  has heard of incidents in the  Roberts Creek area on Lower  Road, Marlene Road and in  the Cliff Gilker Park.  The R.C.M.P. stress the  need for parents to know  where   their   children   are  Lanes and roads, whether  paved or not, are public  property. People riding trail  bikes on private property  must have the permission of  the owners.  The R.C.M.P. warn bike  riders that bikes will be  seized in cases of infractions  and towed away at owners'  expense. Charges will be laid.  Where public property is  involved, offending motorcyclists face fines of $250  for driving without insurance,  $35 for driving without a  licence plate, $35 for driving  without a muffler, and $35  if they are also driving without a valid driver's licence.  In the case of private property, offenders will be responsible for trespassing and for  riding. In order for bikes to any damage caused, and they  be ridden on public property,  will be sued. The police are  the vehicles must be properly licenced and insured, and  the driver must be in possession ofa valid driver's licence.  taking any complaints received most seriously and  intend to prosecute to the  full extent of the law.  was a bit of a problem  ashore.
