Developers rule charge laid  "What is happening in Sechelt is that Council doesn't rule  but is ruled by developers;" Mr. Henry Often told the Coast  News reporter who spoke with him last Thursday, April 19.  Mr. and Mrs. Henry Often, who live at the corner of Trail  Avenue and Pebble Crescent, had been at the Sechelt Council's  regular meeting last Wednesday, April 18, 1979 to address  Council on the condition of Trail Avenue and the dirt piles on  the power line right of way. In what he described as "a year in  the life of a citizen of Sechelt," Mr. Often told the assembly  that he and his wife had travelled around the Province looking  for a place suitable for retirement, and that they had finally  settled upon Sechelt.  "The sewer," he said, "is not a favoured point with me."  For three weeks, he said, it had been impossible to sleep with  pumps going day and night, and trucks shaking everything  as they drove on Trail Avenue built on peat. "Skid row in Vancouver is cleaner,"said Mr. Often. "Disgraceful," said  Mrs. Otten with regard to the aftermath of the sewer construction and the dumping, "I hate living there." Holes and stagnant pools of water have become breeding grounds for mos-  quitos and black flies,'' they said.  Alderman Larry Macdonald  said, "There are stumps there  which could have been hauled  away by the sewer contractors." Alderman Morgan  Thompson said that he would  take the matter of the stumps  up with Gordon Dixon to see  what could be done. Alderman  Kolibas remarked that there  were trees which could have  been left standing and which  were simply sold for the  dollars they were worth without regard to the environment.  Mayor Nelson thanked the  Ottens for attending and  bringing these matters to  Council's attention, and he  assured them that the matters  raised would be investigated.  The Coast News visited Mr.  and Mrs. Otten in their beautifully landscaped and well-  appointed home. They had,  said Mr. Otten bought a lot in  a planned subdivision from  Glenmount Holdings in  1974. The property North East  of the power line right of way  was to have been a golf  course. It was recently rezoned to allow Pebble Holdings to build a sheet metal  shop there and to permit  other industrial uses although  Nell Jager had objected that  this was inconsistent with the  Community Plan since there  is much industrial land still  not used up.

In the 36,000 square miles of  coastal territory Skelly, a  Courtenay resident who, like  the Conservative candidate  pilots his own plane, said that  he and MLA Don Lockstead  were looking forward to forming a diligent NDP team to  represent the coastal areas  in Victoria and Ottawa.  Of prime importance in  the election, Skelly felt, was  excessive foreign control of  Canadian Industry. "What we  need is public participation to  represent the Canadian  people rather than the multinational corporations," said  the NDP Federal candidate.  Skelly predicted that the  probable outcome of the  present election was a minority government with the  NDP holding the balance of  power, "Although," said  Skelly, "for the first  time in the history of Canada  it is possible that the NDP  could form the government  ifter this election."

Candidates joust  vs Lockstead  Gray  A definitely partisan  crowd about equally divided  between Socred and NDP  supporters was on hand for  the provincial all-candidates  meeting held as part of the  Elphinstone Community  Forum on Community TV on  Sunday afternoon, April 22.  Many of the Socred supporters  wore straw boaters and  sported large political signs  and both groups interjected  frequently into the proceedings.  Socred candidate Gerry  Gray spoke first and referred  to promises being made by  NDP leader Dave Barrett  and contrasted the NDP  leader's promises with the  'good management of Premier  Bennett which is putting surplus money back into the community.' As a union man,  Gray said that he believed in  trade unionism but said that  he was afraid that big labour  business will dominate any  NDP government.  "Social Credit is a grass  roots party representing  everyone," said Gray, "but  the NDP cannot even repre  sent the working man. The  mills are full of men who  support the Social Credit party  in this province. We pay union  dues to the unions to represent us, instead the money  goes for propaganda against  our government."  "Free enterprise is the only  hope we are ever going to  have in this province,"  declared the Socred candidate.  MLA Don Lockstead  followed Gray and said that  the creation of jobs was the  most important issue facing  the electorate. Lockstead  said that the NDP had created  144,000 jobs in its three years  in power as compared to just  103,000 created by the Socred  government of Premier  Bennett. "In Ocean Falls  when the plant was closing  and the community dying  when we took office. We  saved it and will modernize  the community and create  jobs for the central coastal  area."  The NDP MLA said that the  present Government in British  Columbia had created 'a  tax-fed recession' with its  abrupt raising of the ferry  fares and tripling automobile  insurance when it took office.  "These moves by the Socreds  hurt principally those on fixed  incomes, working people  and the small business men  of this province," said Lockstead.  Other priority areas indicated by the NDP candidate  included a deteriorating situation in health care as he  saw it; a need to work closely  with the 11% of the population which is native Indian  to enable them to achieve  economic self-sufficiency; and  the need for a moratorium on  the proposed Cheekeye-  Dunsmuir power line.  In a spirited question period  after the candidates had  made their presentations  they were asked questions  about the control of B.C.  Fisheries, highway development, their party's position  on local autonomy for school  boards, right-to-work legislation, and health care.  sewer construction and the  dumping of stinking mud  on the Hydro right of way,"  said the Ottens.  Sand has been removed  from the right of way, and  "peat" brought in to take  its place, he said. More has  been brought in than has  been taken 'out, and Mr.  Otten, who conducted the  Coast News reporter around  the area, anticipated eventual  water run-off problems  on account of the imbalance.  "Some muck has been cleared  up today," (Thursday)  said Mr. Otten.  The Coast News contacted  other residents of the  area at least two of whom are  endeavouring to sell and get  away from their carnaged  surroundings. "It looks like  a moonscape, "said one,  "left in a filthy disgusting  state."  "This is going to be a  slum area," commented  another, and he concluded,  "Developers can do just as  they please." Another expressed himself as being,  "Too full for words," and he  reiterated the feelings expressed by the Ottens with  regard to being pestered by  the sewer machines, trucks,  dust and filth.

In the provincial poll,  70 Lockstead Dogs wne  purchased to Just 18 Gray  Dogs.  In the federal poU, 27 Skelly  Dogs wen sold, 6 Pearsall  Dogs, 4 Lazerte Dogs, and  2 Pederson Dogs.  ster Trudeau. "When he is  faced with Canadians who are  enduring the real hardship of  not being able to find work he  tells them to stop drinking and  get off their backsides and  they'll find work. There are  7,000 people out of work in  this riding," said Skelly,  "more than a million in  Canada and the Prime Minister reacts with contempt.  His time has come and he  will have to go." The NDP  candidate said that NDP  leader Ed Broadbent has  pledged that before the  NDP would work with the  Liberal Party Trudeau would  have to go.  Skelly was followed to the  platform by Conservative  candidate Al Lazerte, a  Campbell River lawyer.  Lazerte said that leadership  was the main issue in this  election. "The present Prime  Minister believes in confrontation and unilateral action."  In contrast Lazerte asserted  that, where Trudeau and his  tactics were dividing Canada,  Joe Clark the Conservative  leader believes in a team  approach to the business of  government. "Clark leads  -a team," said Lazerte. ."He  has united the Progressive  Conservatives in a way unseen  since the early Diefenbaker  years.  Lazerte said that the Conservative party was opposed to  big govenment. "We'd  get the government off your  backs and out of your pockets," said the Conservative  candidate.  No redress  Assessment  errors  When a vacant property is assessed for improvements such  as a house that isn't there, what's a taxpayer to do? The owner  of a lot on South Fletcher found her 1978 assessment listed  at $6,902 when it should have read $1,591, and immediately got  in touch with the assessment office in Sechelt. There she was  told the obvious error would be corrected on the roll. The error  was corrected but not in time to show on the property owner's  tax notice.  When the owner complained to the Surveyor of Taxes, she  was told not to pay the extra charges since it was an error. But  no word of this was sent to the Village and a penalty of $61.14  was added to her tax bill. Finally over a year later, the tax bill  has been corrected and Council voted to correct their audited  books by means of a tax credit to the owner's account.  Another error by the Assessment Authority in the Village  tax rolls last year - perhaps not an error but a lack of information  to the Village - cost Gibsons a $3,000 loss in its budget funds.  Apparently there is no redress for the inconvenience caused  by these errors.  Lazerte said that the opposition members under the  Liberal government had  been totally frustrated,  "Everything is decided in  the Liberal cabinet or caucus  and brought to parliament  to be rubber-stamped into  law.  "The Liberal Government  has   brought   this   country  Please torn to page thirteen  V  .  Marshall queries  Pool closure  When Alderman Marshall asked why the swim1 pool was  closed Easter week-end, Alderman Goddard replied, "We are  looking at a deficit of nearly $60,000 for the year, and we  feel we cannot afford to pay the double-time to staff on statutory  holidays." Following on a closure during the Easter school  break because the water turned murky in the pool, the Easter  closure seemed a bit much to parents whose children were home  from school. The pool was closed Good Friday, open Saturday,  closed Sunday (not a statutory holiday) and Easter Monday.  There are two salaried full-time employees - the director and  his assistant - and eight part-time on hourly wages ��� five lifeguard-instructors and three cashiers. These latter employees  are the ones that would receive double time when working on a  holiday. The pool is open 88 hours a week, and, apart from  about ten statutory holidays in the year, is open seven days a  week.  Now that the commercial brand of purifying chemical that  closures are expected from that cause. "The water was clear,"  said George Bodt, aquatic director, "until oxygen from swim  suits and bodies reacted with some part of the brand of chemical  we were using, and then the water got so cloudy that we couldn't see below the four foot mark, and that was too dangerous. A  pool chemist consultant told us draining and re-filling was the  only way to correct the problem."  New masthead  We at the Coaat Newa  have long wanted to replace  the stylised whale* that  used to adorn oar masthead  with something mote authentic In the way of Indian  representational art. Now wa  feel that we have found what  we wanted.  We an pleaasd to draw  serpent repituwilaHiw that  makes Its appearance lor the  first time on oar maathead this  week.

With  the aid of the sea serpent,  called Tchaln-Ko, there was  never any difficulty In getting  the children home In time for  ���upper.  No sani-station  for tourists  Gibsons Council does not feel that village taxpayers should  provide a sani-station for tourists. This was an apparent consensus among aldermen at the April 17 meeting when the matter  was brought to the meeting by Alderman Marshall. "Some  members of the Wildlife club have urged the completion of the  sani-station which the Village began construction on three years  ago near the Curling Rink." he said.  "All sani-stations that I saw on a trip across the country were  in camp-grounds or service stations," said Alderman Fitchett.  . "I believe the two provincial parks on the Sunshine Coast  provide this facility which should be adequate for this area's  service to tourists," said Alderman Goddard, "and if there is  to be one in Gibsons, it will have to be provided by private  enterprise."  Both Roberts Creek Park and Porpose Bay Park provide a  year-round sani-station service for the public, a Park official told  this newspaper. Alderman Marshall said he would attend  the next Wildlife club meeting to hear what the members  Now, look here, Mr. Motorist, it's the Year of the  Child you know.

For two  days the students of Mrs. MacKown's  Communications Cass filmed panel  discussions, all-candidate meetings,  and local talent. The results will be  appearing shortly on your TV screens on  Channel 10.  Everyone who was a part of the Forum  was again impressed by the dedication,  energy, and ability shown by these young  people and their keenness and competence give credence to the belief that  there is absolutely nothing amiss with our  young people that being given an interes  ting challenge and some encouragement  and support wouldn't rectify.  The calm competence in the face of  an undertaking of the magnitude of the  weekend Forum and the technical  difficulties and the power outages they  had to contend with was admirable  indeed. We wholeheartedly congratulate  all concerned and thank them for the  fresh and inspiring energies and attitudes that they are sharing with this  community.  In their drive for Community TV they  are deserving both of our support and of  adequate facilities.  Clarification required  The report carried in a local paper  which quoted the Socred candidate for  this riding, Gerry Gray, as saying that  work stopped on Highway 101 when the  NDP took office and began when the  Socreds came to power must be rectified.  The fact of the matter is that work on  Highway 101 was carried on during the  three years of NDP government and had  reached the Jolly Roger when the Socreds  came to power and the work abruptly  stopped.  For fully three years under the Socreds  nothing was done on the highway until  just a few weeks before the election was  called. Two things are possible here:  either Mr. Gray was misquoted or he  misrepresented. When asked about  the matter at the meeting on Sunday  he declined to comment. This is simply  not good enough Mr. Gray.  The statement attributed to you was  wrong, totally wrong. If you were misquoted you should make that clear. If  you were ot misquoted you should retract the statement with apologies  to the people of this riding who might  have been misled by it.  Mr. Gray should have immediately  clarified the situation at the Forum  on Sunday. We trust that he will rectify  his oversight at the first opportunity.  Come off it, Mr. Laierte  Conservative federal candidate for this  riding, Al Lazerte, was protesting the  innocence of the Conservative party at  the Forum on Saturday. "How can we be  associated with big business," wondered  Mr. Lazerte. "We haven't been in power  often enough to be associated with them.'  We think this is absolute hogwash,  Mr. Lazerte, and as a veteran Conservative campaigner we believe that you must  know it to be such.  Is it not true, Mr. Lazerte, that the  multi-national corporations who have  gained complete control of Canadian  industry habitually, before the recent  amendments to the Election Act made it  illegal, gave 60% to the party in power  and 40% to the official opposition?  When the Conservatives were in power  just sixteen years ago they were the  gladsome recipients of 60% of the cam  paign money provided by the giant  corporations as they bought successive  Canadian governments. Since then and  until this present election your party,  Mr. Lazerte, cheerfully accepted the 40%  alloted to it by the multi-nationals.  Wasn't that Joe Clarke wooing the  support last week of the big wigs on  Toronto's Bay Street? Bay Street is not  nor has been the centre of small business  in Canada, Mr. Lazerte.  The fact of the matter is that both  old-line parties have been willing stooges  of international finance as Canadians  have progressively lost control over  their industry, their resources, and their  destiny. Too many campaign dollars  from the giant corporations have found  their way into the satchels of Conservative bagmen, Mr. Lazerte, for you to  profess innocence as a Conservative in-  these matters now.  ...from the files of Coast News  FIVE YEARS AGO  Gibsons  Rugby  Club  won   first  place and  the cup  in  Vancouver  Rugby League Fourth Division action  this year.  Coast News editorial: "With  election talk running its usual course  in Ottawa, the possibility of Prime  Minister Trudeau springing an election on the theme "who is running the  country" might not be too unlikely a  theme."

Enroute to hospital it was  thought that the little boy was dead  but he recovered without ill effect.  Dr. Pat McGeer in an address to  the Windermere chamber of Commerce as reported In the Coast News  says: "A far right government such  as that run by Premier Bdhnett  and Social Credit can often provoke  a terrific resentment In the people  against industry."

The re-opening of the hotel coincided  with the 50th anniversary of the Port  Mellon mill.  The British Columbia Automobile  Association disagrees with Highways  Minister Flying Phil Gagliardi  that speed allowable on B.C. Highways should be 65 m.p.h. The Association feels that 60 m.p.h.

In my teens and full of  all the great curiosities, I  partook in everything that was  going on. I lifted weights,  engaged in marathon tennis  matches in the oppressive  heat and humidity of the  Central Canadian summer,  I painfully learned to skate  while pint-sized Canadians  skated circles around my  wobbling and erratic course.  Summers I canoed and winters  I skied. In the fall I played  touch football and in the urban  eastern Spring I followed  the Stanley Cup playoffs  and dodged the sprays of  gook thrown up by the agres-  sive Montreal traffic.  It was the winter-time  skiing that brought me to  one of the major decisions  of my life, not really the  skiing itself which, since . I  was there as in skating  trying to catch up to Canadian  friends with much more  expertise than I commanded,  was a hazardous and helter-  skelter business with a gaunt  and jean-clad figure in a  variety of one-legged, arms-  flailing poses skirting disaster  all the while. No, there was  not much time on the actual  ski-slopes for any great philosophic revelations but the  travelling back and forth was  an entirely different matter.  Skiing for Montrealers for  the most part means a fifty  or sixty mile trip into the  Laurentian Mountains to the  north. In the 1950's of pre-  Expo Montreal the Quebec  highways lagged well behind  the rest of Canada's highways, one is almost certain.  Certainly it was true that  getting on and off Montreal Island was an undertaking of no  mean proportions. There  were, I think about half a dozen two-lane bridges over  which the weekend-bound  Montrealers must cross en-  route to their pastoral and  recreational delights. When  you take into account that  there were well over a million  Montrealers living on Montreal Island and seeking to  escape the city on the weekends, some idea of what the  traffic was like may be attained.  Mind you, it was no better  on the summer weekends of  canoeing and fishing and my  great revelation might have  taken place then. It is only  a matter of historic fact and  accident that it came to me,  as the light to Saul on the road  to Damascus, while I was  struggling to get  out of the city on Friday  afternoon or back into the city  on Sunday evening while  going and coming from ski  outings. Because there were  only six ways into and out of  the city and sometimes the  bumper to bumper line-ups  would stretch ten miles  approaching the bridges.  There was no easy way around  the congestion. Each bridge  was as bad as all the others.  I think my great revelation  came to me as I sat mournfully  in wet clothes with bruised  body after two days of inept  but exhilarating skiing  in a crowded, over-heated car  inching towards the city in  endless traffic through a  blizzard as likely as not.  Memory of the details dims  but I imagine myself gazing  out the window as the traffic  on a Sunday evening swished  by on the lanes, empty and  inviting that led from the  city. Like all great revelations  it was marked by a classic  simplicity. I suddenly realised  that what I must do for the  rest of my life was live where  people went on the weekends.  Thus I would be going when  the herd was coming and  coming when the mass was  going.  Residents of the Sunshine  Coast, judge for yourself how  faithful I have been to my  vision. Who among you does  not smugly contemplate the  enormous line-ups of ferry  traffic waiting at Horseshoe  Bay on Friday afternoons as  you motor in leisurely fashion  off a half-empty ferry on your  way to the weekend city?  Who among you, returning,  does not disembark from  similarly half-empty ferries  on Sunday evening past the  sweating hordes attemting  to return to the city.  Once in my ten years on the  Sunshine Coast has circumstance in the form of returning  children and city-bound visi  tors made it necessary for me  to take a ferry to town on a  summer Sunday evening  and the experience reinforced  that twenty-year revelation if  reinforcing it needed. I waited  sweating and swearing with  youngsters cooped up and  complaining as three ferries  came and went, the third  leaving me but one car away  from embarkation. Four  precious hours of one lone  life spent in the car park of  a ferry terminal. Four hours of  one fleeting mortality wasted  in a waiting crowd.  Please turn to page six  While you have probably  never heard of Pierre Duncan  Winoski of the Canadian  Beer and Hockey Party, he  has been running a vigorous  but low key campaign for election in the federal riding of  Portage-Fort Cranberry since  last November. While Winoski  is the only candidate running  for his party, he has been  assuring audiences from Newfoundland to Vancouver  Island that he will be the next  Prime Minister of Canada.

April 19,1979.  Peter Trower  for his party's policies and at  that time I was fortunate  enough to be granted exclusive coverage of his campaign.  A complex, almost mystical personality, Winoski  is running a campaign which  is simple and direct, "The  way I see it, Mr. Matthews, is  that all them fellows who've  been in politics a long time  has themselves some darn  good ideas. What my party is  going to do is guarantee that  any promise made by any  party any time is going to  get done. Why represent  the wheel, as they say."  A man with that much self-  assurance has to be admired  and after I came up with the  price of another beer for my  new found friend he generously volunteered to tell me his  life story. This offer was no  mean thing considering Mr.  Winoski's heavy campaign  commitments. Even at this  early date in the campaign,  Winoski looked weak and  haggard. His eyes were bloodshot, no doubt from the heavy  reading required of federal  campaigners, he desperately  needed a shave, and his raincoat hadn't been pressed in  weeks.  After I'd scraped up enough  for a third beer for the valiant  old war horse he began his  story. He had apparently been  raised by Ukrainian foster  parents in Winnipeg after  being abandoned at age six  by his Scottish father and  French Canadian mother.  (He made great use of this  during his campaign, he  said, claiming this combination made him the perfect  Canadian.)  After quitting school in  Grade 8, Pierre, (after the  fourth beer he insisted  I call him Pierre) tended  trap lines in Northern Alberta  before joining the Mounties  when he was twenty.

Matthews challenged on views on education  Editor:  George Matthews has recently been permitted to use  his column "Slings and  Arrows" to advocate changes  to the educational system.  George is a teacher by profession and the case he  presents contains the well-  known arguments, buzz-words  and non-sequiturs perenially  advanced by the Teachers'  Federation to increase the  number of teachers employed  in this province.  As a fellow product of the  educational system of the  'SO's and a former school  commission chairman, I  would like to object to a number of the statements made in  the article. Like George, I  was once part of a class of  40 students facing a single  teacher - 40 students in 8  grades, and a teacher who had  no "qualifications" except  that his vision was so poor  that he had been rejected by  the Army. But he had two  qualifications not always  found in classrooms today,  and certainly not "recognized" by the legions of organized teachers - he genuinely liked children and he  had a professional zeal and  determination to do his best.  The result was not chaos,  but a co-operative educational  experience which stressed  fundamentals. As a student  in Grade 2, I would give  spelling tests to Grades 7  and 8. Later in the day, a  Grade 6 student would correct my arithmetic. We  learned. We learned the 3  R's. We learned to communicate, We learned to cooperate. We learned to  tolerate.  George states that a reduced student/teacher  ratio will provide better education for our children and  expects that this will be  accepted as a self-evident  truth. Not sol Unbiased  research on the subject  places a number of caveats  and limitations on this relationship. On a personal note,  I've attended courses in which  the ratio was 120/1 and I've  attended one course in Modern History in which the ratio  was 1/1. A ratio of 1/1 is not  a learning environment unless  you're sitting at the feet of  Socrates.  George states that students  are better educated today...  that there is more to learn  today. Nonsensel In these  statements, George implies  that education is the prerogative of schools and teachers,  It is not I Education is a  life-long process for which,  hopefully, the schools will  prepare you be developing  an inquisitive mind and two  essential skills - a working  knowledge of mathematics  and fluency in your mother  tongue. In fact, more students  today are poorly educated  because, in our permissive  society, they are nof required  to take those subjects which  are essential to the development of these skills. With  fluency and a working knowledge of mathematics a student will be able to successfully experience, throughout  Ms life, any form of training  or education to prepare  him for a vocation or avocation.  George states that there is  a direct relationship between  your investment in education  and the rising quality of education, again as a self-evident  truth. Personally, I see interesting parallels between  education and play, recognizing of course, that play  is a major form of education.  Invariably, the most effective and most satisfying forms  of play for a child are the least  structured, the least directly  supervised and the least  equipped. How often have  you seen a child tire quickly  of the new toy "as seen on  TV" and return to the discarded box which he can cut,  paint, sit in or sit on? The1  box places no limitation on his  imagination.  Ifl were asked to make a  weighted list of the factors  which are important to education, the physical plant,  the student/teacher ratio,  etc., I would place teacher  quality very clearly at the top  of the list. (By quality, I do  not mean qualification. The  best teachers in my personal  experience have usually  possessed modest qualifications.) And yet we seem to  address every problem  except teacher quality. Our  most pressing need is a system which will provide an  objective assessment of a  teacher's ability with provision to weed out those who  are incompetent. In this way,  teaching may again become a  true profession.  The second item on my  weighted list would be the  strengthening and expansion  of provincial educational  standards. Without standards,  you cannot measure results,  and we should not be forced  to look back on ten years of  experience at U.B.C. before  we learn that language education in B.C. is inadequate.  Yes, it would mean more  centralized control of the  curriculum, but I'm convinced  that the basic educational  needs of children in Kamloops  are the same as children in  Comox. The hue and cry about  local needs serves only to  support a local educational  bureaucracy which must  determine what these needs  are and how they can best  be satisfied.  The final item on my list  would be an educational organization in which the major  policy decisions are placed  in the hands of professionals  who do not have a vested  interest in the outcome,  either politically or economically. The general public  should be given channels  to influence these decisions,  but most of us are at a significant disadvantage in dis-'  cussing education. We lack  the training and we're unfamiliar with the jargon.  Told that failure to improve  the student/teacher ratio  will permanently impair the  cognitive domain of our  child, we're apt to panic.  Told repeatedly that more  money will improve education,  we may begin to believe it.  Parents are too easily influenced by the teachers to  be considered totally independent in their opinions. '  W.I.Hughes  The need for sniall boat safety  Editor:  May I first of all express  the condolences of those who  took part in the rescue, and  the recovery of the victim of  last week's tragedy in Davis  Bay, totheDePlantes.  There are a few features of  that mishap which indicate  a need to refresh our knowledge of safety in small boats,  and I would like to take this  opportunity of listing some -  with no reflection on what  happened, or to the persons  involved, but simply to try to  avoid further incidents, with  the sadness it must bring.  Would people please remember!-  1. If your visiting friend  wants to go fishing, please  make sure that if he cannot  swim (and this applies to you  tool) he wean a lifejacket,  or at least a personal flotation  device (both of which will  keep you afloat, but the  lifejacket should float you  face up.) You should also have  a whistle with you - better  than shouting.  2. Before you leave, even  on a short trip, let some  responsible person know -  where you are going, if you  know, but more important,  when you expect to return.  If you don't appear, then at  least someone will be looking  out for you! The weather  might change while you are  out,  3. If something does happen  to someone else out on the  water, please use "common  sense" in becoming involved  in your boat. If you just think  of it, once darkness sets  in, a lot of small boats in the  area, without any overall  control, makes the Coast  Guard Searchers' job more  difficult, as they must spend  some of their efforts in avoiding collisions, and trying to  prevent    more    casualties!  Just one more thing, not  in boats, but those parachute  flares do burn hot while  they are generating all that  candlepower, so don't try  to handle them should they  come down near you, On the  other hand, don't put water  right on them, but if necessary, wet the area around the  flare, to prevent a fire starting.  It is the hope of all the responsible authorities that we  can enjoy lots of safe boating  (and   good   fishing)   along  Agreement  Editor:  I would like to Congratulate  you on your Editorial re the  Calling of a Provincial Election by Mr. Bennett. I agree  entirely with you, that the  Social Credit Government had  plenty of time to fulfill their  promises in the recent Budget  that they exposed to the Public, with all its promises and  give aways.  I am sure there are thousands of Voters who feel the  same way about it as you do,  why all the hurry, and such a  short time for People to get  on the Voters list?  Thanks Mr. Editor again.

Tue8.,Wed.,Thur8.,Frl.,Sat Coast News, April 24,1979  Comedy of error  By Allan Crane  A Very Special Little Lady  Parti  In her younger years, she  was often called Gem (a  nickname based on her initials) and she was indeed,  a many-faceted lady. She  was born on October 17,  five years after the turn of the  century, in the small town of  Butterworth, Malaya and her  earliest memories hark back  lo this exotic setting. E.VV.F.  Oilman, her father, occupied  an important Government  position and was a figure of  high esteem in the area. The  family lived in a spacious  home with many servants and  amenities. It was a halcyon  lime for the little girl whose  Christian names were Gertrude Eleanor Mary and whose  wide-eyed face peers yet from  a contemporary photograph  like a small Edwardian Alice.  Although her mother was  inclined to be an overly-  strict disciplinarian, she  recalled most of her early  girlhood with fondness. She  often spoke of Elephant Rock,  a small hill in the neighbourhood, down whose smooth  slopes, she and her young  friends delighted to slide.  Gem Gilman remained in  thc tropics until she was nine.  During the latter part of this  period, the family moved to  the larger settlement of  Penang and two brothers,  Charles and Christopher,  were born. She received her  initial education from a  native tutor or "amah" but  in May 1914, this first tropic  idyll came to an abrupt  conclusion. She was shipped  to an aunt in England and  enrolled in a girl's boarding-  school near Southampton.  It was the first of several  drastic shifts of scene that  were to characterize her  life. A few months later, Archduke Ferdinand was assassinated and smouldering  Europe exploded into war.  Her early schooldays in  England were for the most  part, a grey, lonely time,  dampened further by knowledge of the conflict that  raged bloodily across the  Channel and threatened to  engulf the world. It was not  a period she referred to with  Pages  from a Life-Log  Peter Trower  much warmth or pleasure.  She did her lessons dutifully  and took part in such compulsory sports as grass-hockey  which she hated. When she  referred to the time at all, it  was usually to mention the  unpalat ible food that wartime  shortages dictated; margarine  that tasted like cart-grease  and an ominous suet-pudding  called "spotted dog." When  Gem finished her formal  education, she attended a  cooking school for two years.  (Women of her class in those  days, seldom went on to college but were trained for  wifehood in this manner.)  The culinary expertise she  picked up at this establishment never left her. "My  mother always kept a good  table" she often said "and 1  try to do the same." She  certainly did. Her meals were  simple fare for the most part  but invariably delicious.  During this period, she frequently spent time with her  mother's sister whose husband ran a boys prep-school  called Bannisters in Southhampton. It was an ancient,  rambling place, reputedly  haunted by the ghost of a  hanged cavalier and replete  with secret passages and  priest holes. Her uncle by  all accounts, was a rather  cruel man given to excessive  use of corporal punishment.  He was fond of Gem however  and she was often able to  intercede on behalf of one  unfortunate boy or another.  When this tactic failed, she  would frequently hide the  cane he was so prone to employ. An erratic, unstable individual, he was destined to end  his days in an asylum.  In 1926, Gem rejoined her  parents who were by then  residing in Kuala Lumpur in  Malaya. She was by this time,  an extremely beautiful  young woman and had numerous suitors. She finally  settled on Stephen Trower,  a five year veteran of both the  Navy and Airforce, who was  then working as an air-survey  pilot   for   a   civilian   firm.  Both parents were against the  match, not from any personal  animosity towards Trower (a  handsome man of high intelligence) but because of the  dangerous nature of his work.  Gem however, was adamant.  She had found the man she  loved and she intended to  marry him come hell or  high water. At length, her  parents both capitualted albeit  grudgingly and in late spring  of 1929, the ceremony took  place. Stephen was working  out of Calcutta at the time  and the first months of their  marriage were spent in that  sweltering, disease-ridden  city. Gem disliked Calcutta  intensely and fortunately their  stay there was not a long one.  Late in that same year, Stephen secured a job as test-  pilot for the Fairey Aircraft  company and they returned  to England. They went first  to live with Stephen's parents  at St. Leonards on Sea in  Sussex. It was in this tranquil  resort town on August 25,  1930, that I first saw the light  of day.  Living with in-laws is seldom an effective arrangement  and this case was no exception. Gem and Stephen set  about looking for a place of  their own. In the rather  bohemian town of Maidenhead, near London, they  finally found a house that  suited both of them. I have  written elsewhere and at  length about this peculiar  dwelling. Suffice it to say that  my earliest memories were  formed within its, eerie confines (for if ever a house was  haunted it was that one.)  Since his job took him to  Belgium much of the time, I  saw all too little of him. In  those earliest years, I shared  the house with my mother, an  antisocial cat and a trio of  phantoms, real or imaginary,  that I kept claiming to see.  In January 1933, my brother  Chris was born, adding a new  member to that most curious  household. We occupied those  sinister premises until 1935.  In that grim year, my grand  parent's worst forbodings  were borne out. While testing  a plane called the Fairey  Fantome, my father apparently suffered a blackout while  pulling out of a power-dive  and drove that long-obsolete  aircraft into the ground. My  mother was literally paralyzed  with grief when she received  the awful news. Stephen was  only thirty-five, in the prime  of his life. It was a shattering  blow. Fortunately, my grandparents were back in England  by this time. My grandfather  had retired and they had  bought a huge rambling house  in the Oxfordshire village of  Islip. They drove down forthwith, rescued us from that  phantom-ridden death house  and took us home to live with  them.  This relatively idyllic  period has already been recounted in another place. It  was, after my mother had  gotten over the initial shock of  losing Stephen, one of the  most tranquil phases of our  lives. Never, before or since,  would we be more protected  and pampered. As if to compensate for our loss, my  mother's parents spoiled us  silly. It was the very antithesis  of the somewhat strict upbringing our mother had  received. We lapped it all up  like a couple of hungry little  animals. Our mother, for her  part, plunged in a veritable  maelstrom of creativity. It  was some sort of sub-conscious therapy, I suppose, but  it guided her through those  painful times. I still retain  vivid images of her scrawling  endlessly on sheets of foolscap. She was encouraged in  this endeavour both by my  scholarly grandfather and a  professional writer named  Hugh Chesterman who lived  locally. In those latter years  of the Thirties, she produced  a novel and at least fifty  short-stories. Fortunately,  most of these manuscripts still  exist and we hope to find a  place in print for the best of  them.  My mother also had a great  love for poetry and held a  This Saturday, April 21,  I set out for the Orpheum  Vancouver with a friend for  a concert in wheh the featured  soloist was to be Leonard  Rose. He was to play the Concerto for 'cello and orchestra  by Antonin Dvorak.  The little comedy of errors  began when we decided to  catch the 6.30 p.m. ferry,  from Langdale on the Sunshine Coast for Horseshoe  Bay and Vancouver, rather  than the 6.00, to allow more  time for Susan to practice  piano and for me to work on  reports for the newspaper,  Since the concert was scheduled to start at 8.30 p.m.,  wc decided that it would be  too risky to catch the 7.15 p.m.  ferry. We duly arrived at the  terminal only to discover  that the 6.30 ferry had been  discontinued five days previously when the special  schedule for School Break  and Easter expired. We would  be on board the 7.15 p.m.  ferry after all, but we thought  we would probably squeeze in  on time. "  We parked the car a few  blocks away from the auditorium with three minutes to  get to the concert, and we half  ran, half walked down Granville Street ii the auditorium  only to find the Granville  Street entrance closed. There  were, however, people milling  around. Apparently, the concert had not yet started, but  there wasn't time to get to  the Seymour Street entrance.  We banged on the door, and  someone let us in.  We mingled with the crowd  and wondered not only about  the relaxed starting time but  bronze medal for elocution.  When she wasn't busy writing, she would frequently  recite to me such favourite  poems as The Highwayman  by Alfred Noyes and The  Listener by Walter De La  Mare. Her voice, in those  years, was strong, clear and  full of feeling. She instilled a  love of language in me that  has never left.  also about the crowd itself  which seemed different from  the usual audience for the  Famous Composers series.  It was a wonder to us, too, as  to why we had been given  an announcement of another  concert rather than the regular  programme notes as we  entered the auditorium to  find our regular seats already  occupied. We were a week  early I  We fled to the lobby in a  state of bemused embarrassment. I felt like seven different kinds of congenital  idiot but 1 told Susan that  the lapse was probably due  to blows and lacerations on  the head received in an automobile accident four days  previously.  A du Maurier Pops concert  with "Take me home country  roads" and "You light up  my life" among the items on  the programme was not quite  what we were anticipating.  Brahms and Tchaikowsky  were also on the programme,  and there were empty seats,  so we settled down and waited  for Brahms' Academic Festival Overture to commence.  Very un-Brahms like sounds  reached our ears from the  orchestra. A change in order,  perhaps, we thought as we  recognized the popular  "Sabre Dance" from Khacha-  ��� turian's "Gayane Suite".  Then Susan pointed to the  starting time - 7.30 p.m. I  We had arrived at intermission and missed both the  Brahms and the Tchaikovsky!  We stayed for Denver and  "You light up my life", and  "Boogie woogie bugle boy"  and (ughl) "A fifth of Beethoven" as encores.  We thought the tale worth  telling to friends in the  orchestra and so we went back  stage where our tale was  heard with amusement.  We were invited to the  Classical Joint Coffee House  on Carroll Street (S.W. off  Cordova)   an   establishment  There, our ears were  assuaged by string quartets  of Mozart and unfifthed  Beethoven to: complete an  evening of the unexpected.

Reports  of the attack, dramatised from  H.G.Wells' novel about a  Martian invasion of the  Earth, were believed in spite  of their fantastic nature and  the absence of evidence that  the city was under any kind  of attack whatever. That Truth  should be the first casualty of  war is a commonplace of our  century; we are accustomed to  the distortion of major battles  into minor skirmishes and vice  versa, inflated or favourably  adjusted "body counts  and recently, thanks to  Ugandan dictator Idi Amin's  having taken a hint from  Messrs. Wells and Welles,  the final refinement: completely fictional battles,  Until just lately one of  Amin's favourite tactics for  distracting public attention  from his bankrupt treasury  and hopelessly inflated economy was the invention of  military emergencies in the  form of invasion forces  crossing the borders from  neighbouring states. (Tanzania was the favourite bogeyman and in fact did give  sanctuary and a base of operations to Ugandans dedicated to Amin's overthrow.)  For awhile there I was hoping  that the idea of completely  fictional war might catch on,  as an alternative to humanity's number one blood  sport, but inevitably, it seems  the wars of words must escalate into the real thing. Rebel  Ugandans, backed by Tanzania, are now turning Amin's  fictions into realities with a  vengeance.  In a volume of his collected essays and book reviews,  spanning the period 1968  to 1973, and entitled The  Heel of Achillea (Picador,  1974), Arthur Koestler makes  some interesting observations  on the connection between  language and mankind's  self-destructive aggressiveness. "Let me repeat," he  says, "wars are fought for  words. They are man's most  deadly weapon. The words of  Adolf Hitler were more  effective agents of destruction  than thermonuclear bombs.  Long before the printing  press and the other mass  media were invented, the fervent words of the prophet  Mohammed released an emotive chain reaction, whose  blast shook the world from  Central Asia to the Atlantic  coast. Without words there  would be no poetry - and no  war. Language is the main  source of our superiority  over brother animal ��� and,  in view of its explosive potentials, the main threat to our  survival."  Koestler goes on to point  out that among animals of  the same species aggression  and combat are ritualized  to stop short of murder and  thus to avoid the danger of  self-extinction in the species.  Ironically, it is language ���  the very tool which enables  us to exchange ideas and concepts, to formulate and communicate plans of action, to  rise, in short, above the  animals, that seems to contribute most to man's urge to  self-destructively murder  members of his own species.  Part of the reason lies in the  fact that all members of the  species do not share the  same language. The Tower of  Babel, he says, is still a valid  image. Differences of language are a major divisive  force since they identify and  separate groups of people  from one another psychologically. We in Canada know  this as well as any. Language  reinforces and goes a long way  to create unity within a group,  but it divides that group  against the whole. There are  few peoples in the world who  are not defensively proud of  their own tongue. Even within  a single language, variations  of accent and vocabulary are  often sources of prejudice  and hostilit-  Dixon discuss the proposed  sechelt Garbage Dump.  new location of the  CORNER OFSCHOOLAND  GOWER POINT ROAD  ABOVE THE NDP BOOKSTORE  Pick Up Your Bumper Stickers  And Lawn Signs'Here  886-8214  Mon. to Fri.  9a.m. to 9 p.m.  Sat. & Sun. 10a.m. to 9 p.m.  THE COFFEE POT'SON  Authorized by the McKenzle NDP  m_m__^___m_m___m______m__%  Language operates divisi-  vely on a number of levels.  Most obviously there is the  difference between major  languages themselves along  racial and national lines. Then  there is the divisiveness of  dialled, mutually incomprehensible variations of the  same language, along geographical lines. Then too,  there are the differences  of accent 'and inflection that  appear along economic lines;  the identification of a person  as "working class' of "upper  class' merely by the pronunciation of certain vowels or  the dropping of certain  consonants, or the use of a  special slang jargon. Last,  but far from least, there Is  the matter of words themselves; a single word may  have many meanings, and  many more differing shades  of meaning and emphasis,  depending   on  the   context  in which it is used and the  understanding of the person  vho uses it. Dictionary  Jefinitions are a valuable,  in fact necessary aid, yet they  can hardly keep pace with  changes in actual common  usage. Also, there always  exists that sub-strata of  thoughts, ideas, and emotions  that words are simply inadequate to express and communicate. Koestler has ample  grounds for his statement,  "Thus language appears to  be one of the main reasons,  perhaps Ihe main reason, why  the disruptive forces have  always been stronger than  the cohesive forces In our  species."  Language, he suggests,  may actually be at the very  root of these disruptive  forces, since lt is language  that allows us to overcome the  taboo against murder within  the species which protects  less articulate animals. It  does so by giving us the power  to deny the very humanity of  other members of our own  species ��� we coin words like  "savages" or "barbarians"  (the term Bar-bar-ous, he  reminds us, "is imitative  of the alien's gibberish" ���  his language as opposed to  our own - "or the barking of  a dog") which mitigate or  utterly negate the criminality  of whatever violence we  wish to perpetrate upon them.  The Nazis used the term  "Untermenschen" ("under-  men or sub-human") to describe mental defectives,  Jews, Slavs, Poles, Gypsies,  and anybody else they didn't  like and to justify their extermination of same. As a result  of what is nothing more or  less than an exercise in  semantics, the persecution  of the nonconformist, the  burning of the "heretic", the  slaughter of the "infidel",  the massacre and dispossession of the "savage", the enslavement of "the barbarian",  and the extermination of the  "sub-human" become acts  of social virtue and even  of piety.  In an age when the mass  media subjects us to an  increasing bombardment of  bombast    from    politicians  and self-appointed saviours,  all of them notably eager  to point out who and what the  enemy is, (even our own  provincial Premier can play  fast and loose with terms like  "National Socialism" when  it suits him), it is all the more  difficult and all the more important to make sure nobody  talks you into hating a total  stranger. In spite of this excursion into some of the  darker aspects of language,  our ability to communicate  temains our single hope for  deliverance from our own  self-destructive ignorance and  fear. Since it's the International Year of The Child, you  might try getting some books  on children in other lands  for your own kids. If they  learn to understand and  accept other people as fellow  human beings now, it may  just save them both from  having to face one another  across a battle-field in the  future.

There was strong  demand for our products, and Canada's  devalued dollar helped. In the woods, the  mills, the offices, we kept a sharp eye on  costs, worked harder, improved productivity, made some tough decisions. It all  helped. We are a financially solid  company with our roots in a financially  sound province.  A 10% return may look pretty  good. In fact, however, it's  about average���what manufacturing firms in Canada have been  making recently. In the years from  75 to 77, MacMillan Bloedel averaged only 2.8%.  The financial community thinks our  return should be nearer 14%. Surveys indicate that the public thinks  we make around 18% profit, with  some suggesting as high as 30%.  10% on investment in 1978 works  out .to be $100.9 million. $76.8  million of that has been ploughed  back into the business���to buy new,  more productive equipment, to rebuild mills to improve their production, reduce pollution, hasten  reforestation, provide more secure  jobs.  Healthy profit catches the eye of  the financial community. If we  need extra money for growth it  becomes easier to borrow at  reasonable interest. As you know,  your banker is kinder when your  credit is good.  Our improved profit in 1978 meant  that, if you were a shareholder, you  received a bigger dividend for the  year. 24% of the profit was distributed among our 17,000  shareholders.  This kind of profit tells the world  that MacMillan Bloedel is financially healthy. It is no wonder that  outside companies have sought to  take over this independent British  Columbia enterprise.  This is MacMillan Bloedel's annual  report. It explains how business was last  year. It covers our operations, products  and markets, gives financial figures for  the past several years, discusses future  plans.

Nearly all  were rehired after they had  served their token punishment-periods. Conditions  were not to improve appreciably until thc Depression  ended with the onset of the  Second World War, but they  were getting better as the men  grew less-afraid to voice  their grievances. Alec Will'  remembers the business of  the shovels not long after he  had managed to get back  on the grain-boats. Some  genius in the front-office had  developed the notion that  Ihe wheat could be moved  faster if the men were issued  with heavy, wide-mouthed  coal-shovels in place of the  lighter variety normally used.  One shift with these clumsy  implements proved quite  enough. That night, as the  exhausted gang left the boat  there were twenty-four  splashes. "Guess they're  still down there in the bloody  mud I" It was a minor incident  but indicative of a new spirit.  Alec soon worked his way up  to siderunner and was a considerably more-benign boss  than the foul-tongued men  he'd often worked under.  Things were beginning to  change for the better at last  and this time, happily, they  would continue to do so. In  1944, the Vancouver local  which had vastly increased its  strength since the set-back  nine years earlier, affiliated  with the powerful International Longshoremen's and  Warehousemen's Union and  the other B.C. locals soon  followed suit becoming thc  Canadian link in an organized  front that stretches from  Alaska to California. This was  the year of the Greenhill Park  explosion when the munitions-  ship blew-up in the harbour,  taking the lives of eight  dockers but that tragedy has  been dealt with too extensively elsewhere to reprise  in detail. In September 1950,  the ttWU in B.C. negotiated  the biggest wage-gain of any  union in Canada -18 cents an  hour across the board - and a  pension-plan was won shortly  after. In 1958, the first serious  strike since 1935 occurred in a  dispute over compulsory arbitration but it was a far cry  from the days of the Ballentyne Pier blockade. The longshoremen were solidly backed  by organized labour and wide  community-support. In precisely one month, the Federation threw in the towel and  virtually all the docker's  demands were granted. They  were no longer dealing with a  few hundred desperate rebels  who could be starved, beaten  and blacklisted into submission. The Dark Ages were  gone for good.  The present-day Vancouver  waterfront is a vastly different place from the Ill-  paying, dangerous jungle of  indifferent equipment,  exploitive bosses and drive-  'em-till-they-drop siderunners  that it once was. Containeri-  zation or the preloading of  cargo in truck-bodies has eliminated much of the out-and  out bullwork. Many ships are  still stowed in the old manner  and the strong back has  certainly not gone out of  fashion but the use of lift  trucks in the holds has taken  much of the weight from it  now. There is no longer any  sacking of grain and the  shovelling's gone too, the  wheat now being bulk-blown  into special tanks. Joe Stor-  tenberg tells a good analogy  of the difference between  then and now. Where it  once took 120 men to sack-load  a 9,000 ton ship, it now takes  only six to load a vessel of  130,000 tons. He adds that the  latter ship which he saw on a  recent visit to the docks was  "so big it looked like it was  coming in sideways I" Safety  takes top-priority on all jobs  now with regular inspectors  to check the winches and other  gear before use.

But  it was from the thousands of  thankless hard-cargoes they  sweated long ago that it all  grew; from the first stands  they took when the going  got unbearable; from the  dreams they dreamed and the  battles they finally fought.  Those still around - and there  are many of them - temper  their harsh memories with  humerous ones for as Alec  Will says "every grim situation had its lighter moments."

Mayor  Nelson of Sechelt was at this  meeting as a representative  of the Regional Board which  wasalso attended by Consultant Architect Killick who discussed the costs involved  to move the School Board's  portable complex to a site  proposed at Chatelech Junior  Secondary School.  Mayor Nelson reported on  this to Council at the regular  meeting held in the Sechelt  Council Chambers last Wednesday, April 18, 1979.  "The cost is prohibitive,"  he said, "to make the portables into a real building."  A committee is to be formed  to discuss sharing accommodation between the Village of  Sechelt, the Regional Board  and the School Board. Alderman Macdonald was asked  and agreed to represent the  Village on  this  committee.  The Coast News contacted  Regional Board Chairman  Ed Nicholson and School  Board      Secretary-Treasurer  Roy Mills to gather further  Information about the proposed tripartite use and the  ad hoc committee which has  been    struck.  Roy Mills agreed that  it would be expensive to  locate the portable complex  and renovate it to the extent  suggested by the architect.  The architect said that unless  we spend money on the  exterior it will detract from  the site and from Chatelech  School. "We didn't set out  to make a marvellous building," said Mr. Mills, but  rather a utilitarian building  at reasonable cost."  Ed Nicholson said, "It is  necessary to look at all options, but it would be easier  to  locate  on  level   land."  School Board Secretary-  Treasurer Roy Mills was  optimistic that a joint use  proposal may go ahead. He  too said, however, "We are  not closing any  either." In the case of the  School Board, tangible  developments are of the  essence if the the tripartite  agreement is to proceed.  The Board's lease with the  Village of Gibsons expires  on June 30 of this year.  Coast News, April 24,1979.

There goes  Breton he married a Mic-  Mac girl and settled down  to raise a family.  At the age of forty-five,  he moved out west where he  was a logger and salmon  fisherman. It was in B.C.,  at a Salvation Army banquet  that he heard what he described as "a calling". He said  a voice with a French accent  told him to pack up and move  back to his boyhood haunts  and raise up the people in a  glorious crusade to save the  Canadian nation. So he returned to Fort Cranberry and  spent twenty years preaching  the theme of a strong Canada  to all who would listen.  In 1977, the year he started  getting his first old age pen-  i sion cheque, he made up his  mind to run for election.  Along with a few old friends,  he raised enough money to  establish the Canadian Beer  and Hockey party. He was  running his campaign on  shoestring he said, with  hardly enough to keep body  and soul together. I felt  the warmth of generosity  in my breast as he allowed  me the honour of buying  him yet another glass of  beer.  He carried on in his weary,  often stumbling voice, ex-  plaining what his party stood  for. He believed, for example,  that it was tantamount to  treason to allow Canadian  hockey players to be exported  to the U.S. without a large  export duty being levied. He  believed the export duty on  hockey players would be  enough to pay for the policy  of guaranteeing any election  promise by any party with  enough left over to provide  a healthy government subsidy  to deplete the price of a glass  of beer, which, he reminded  me, wasn't getting any  cheaper, as I bought yet another round.  By the end of the evening,  the old veteran was so weary  that he fell asleep right there  on the table. I couldn't help  wondering how he would  manage when the election  campaign really got rolling.  As I assisted him back to his  party headquarters at the  Acme Rooms, he told me how  much it meant to him to have  a friend of the party in B.C.  and he assured me that he  would look me up on his next  swing though Western  Canada.  It almost brought tears to  my eyes to see the gallant old  politician     negotiate     the  a real Canadian fighting the  good fight on real Canadian  issues, I thoght to myself.  These half-baked leaders of  other parties should be  ashamed of themselves witli  their jet planes, campaign  buses, three piece suits and  whatnot. Who the hell do they  think they are? They sure  don't represent anything even  close to that true Canadian,  Pierre Duncan Winoski. Just  how gullible do those politicians think we voters are?  Gibsons Detachment.  April 16, 9179.

Under the NDP, there was a virtual halt in the growth of revenues from our  resource industries. A major reason was the unfair "super royalty" on mineral  production-a royalty which seriously reduced mining exploration and  development.  Social Credit has changed all that, by removing the "super royalty" and adopting a pos.'ive approach to dealing with mining, forestry and other industries.  The result has been an increase in provincial government resource revenues  of 75% in only three years... with major benefits for all British Columbians.  > Lower taxes for the individual.  With our resource industries expanding  and providing more of the revenues B.C.  needs, this governmeni has been able to  reduce taxes in several areas. The provincial sales tax was permanently cul from  7% to 5%, recently reduced to 4% with a  commitment to keep il down to 4%. Thc  provincial share of personal income tax  will be reduced by 2%. Important tax  relief was provided for farmers and small  businessmen.  ���More money for programs people need.  Under Social Credit, spending has increased in all areas affecting the well-being  of our people: health and hospital care,  education, housing, services for senior citizens and for the handicapped. To a large  extent, this increased governmeni spending has been possible because of ihe  growth of revenues from our resource  industries.  > More jobs for British Columbians.  The upsurge of activity in forestry and  mining is creating new jobs throughout  the province. In fact, there are 75,000  more people working in B.C. today than  in 1975. With renewed invcslor confidence  since Social Credit look ollice, prospects  are good for the months and years ahead.  SOCIALCREWTWORKS. FOR YOU. HMM��������<��MI  8.

Roberts Creek Due is  coming. Along with the planning of this year's events,  the Roberts Creek Community  Association is enthusiastic  about finding ways to make  the spirit of the Daze last  throughout the rest of the  year.  At the latest monthly meeting on April 18, the Association members joined together  in taking positive steps toward encouraging the strong  sense of community that the  Creek has always  had.   In  addition to the July 13 and  14 Roberts Creek Daze celebration, the Association has  instituted the Roberts Creek  Hall of Fame - a means of  honouring outstanding  citizens and achievements  in the community.  A committee hss also been  formed to organize a regular  Farmer's Market for the  summer months in the park  behind the Post Office.  The Library Committee  would like to expand the  library's hours, and several  people have expressed interest in having a summer  story time for the children.  An annual fall dinner  promises to be a memorable  community event. And a concert featuring local musical  and dramatic talent is also  in the offing.  The Community Association  welcomes the participation  of all residents of Roberts  Creek. If you would like to get  involved in any of the above  projects, or if you have any  other ideas, please call  885-5783. And don't forget  the Roberts Creek Daze  planning meeting on April  25, at 8 p.m. in the Community Hall.

Children's and assorted other  races will be held In the morning   with   the   traditional  Come  cry  with  me  By Ann Napier  Write Box 3,c/o Coast News ,  Dear Ann:  My boyfriend, or whatever  you call a live-in man, and I  separated. We are now thinking of trying again. I have my  doubts - can the fire be  re-kindled? Are we just  remembering what used to  be? Bemused  Dear Bemused:  A good question, with as  many answers as there are  people.  Whatever caused the  break? Analyze the cause*  and see if it is gone or can be  removed. Usually when  people that love each other  separate, it's because of a  third party. Unless that is  resolved, it will happen again.  When people separate, most  of the time, they are emotionally divorced before they  physically quit the scene.  I hope this is helpful. I know  it's vague, but only you can  know what is in your head and  his. A lot is in attitude -  proceed cautiously. Remember there are billions of  people in the world - there are  people compatible to you  somewhere.  Dear Ann:  I have a good love affair  going and am content. My  problem is, a friend of my  lover keeps coming on to me,  and not too subtley either.  Asking me outright if I want to  get it on, to grabbing and  wrestling me around. Because  he's my lover's friend, I  don't want to tell on him.  How can I handle this myself?  Poshed  Dear Pushed:  Well everyone must have  this experience at some or  other.  You won't discourage him  by not telling - he thinks you  like it. Explain to him why you  haven't mentioned his behaviour to your lover - you feel  you'd rather not jeopardize  their friendship, put if he  doesn't straighten up you  have no alternative. Be firm  and give him a pinch or shove  next grab around. Then see  if you can arrange for him to  meet some athletic young  lady,  You realize your lover may  only laugh if you tell him.  Men have a blind eye to their  friends' faults, as you may  have noticed in other things.  He may just think he's a  good ole boy, complimenting  him on his choice. He, in other  words may make excuses for  his rude behaviour. Men think  they're irrestible, so forgive  MkMMMMMI  their friends the same thought  A few real emphatic repulses  may do the trick.  Dear Ann:  With all the elections coming up, how do you decide  who is the better man? I  hear some one lauded and the  next speech they are criticized -1 get mote confused as  time goes by. How does one  decide on their own who is the  better man? Confused  Dear Confused:  I can only tell you how I  (eel. I judge by the past  performance. Are you and  your friends as happy or pro-  your friends as happy or pros-  at  perous as you were under an  opposition leader. It's like a  good lover, you know if your  life is better or not. If you  want to quit or continue,  that is the question. Judge the  character of the critic against  the politician - then you know  which to believe!  So hence there are many  yardsticks and each voter is  probably using a different  one. But they may reach a  majority in their varied ways  that is valid - let's hope, I  deplore the married couple  where one is a rubber stamp  for the other-think I  Girls rugby  ���**���������***���*���  By Kelly Hemy  Due to the efforts of Mr.  Spence and some determined  girls, a girls rugby team has  been formed. The team consists of eight grade 8's and  nine senior players. All the  girls enjoy the game; however, it is a physically demanding sport.  The girls have been practicing for about two weeks,  with one as a team. Occasionally, the junior boys have  been helping the team on the  skills of the game. At the present, they are the only girls  team on the coast. All games  will be played Against Vancouver and surrounding district based teams. The first  game was played last week  at Garibaldi. This showed  the girls the real game of  rugby. Until then, practices'  were going well, but the girls  were still hazy about the playing of the game. Elphie  lost 16 to 0.

These  two are the third or fourth  generation offspring of swans  originally obtained from Consultant I) If Mr. Manyk's  Stanley Park and introduced  administrations are success  rejected swans, via our waterfront property, to Sakinaw  Lake. A third swan, of the  same generation, which has  been moderately lacerated  by the other Ruby swans when  it attempted to get Into the  water, is at present being  mursed back to health by  Mr. Manyk. (Mr. Jamie  Stephen, our Conservation  Officer,   is   the    'Resident  to Ruby Lake, by the late  John dine, about 14 years  ago. Since that time, despite  losses from natural predators  and some not so natural,  (one was found dead with a  .22 calibre bullet in its body),  they have multiplied and  made their homes at the south  end of Ruby Lake and the adjoining Lagoon, bordered by  the Ruby Lake Restaurant and  the Ruby Lake Motel.  Recently, because these  swans are very territorial,  three other pairs refused to  permit the two now in Sakinaw  any access to the water in  either Ruby Lake or the  Lagoon I Consequently  they took to roaming dangerously on Highway 101 and  languishing between the two  bodies of water, unable to  obtain their natural feed. The  fact that they survived can  be attributed solely to Mr.  Ted Manyk and to Mr. Norm  Armstrong; owner and operator of Ruby Lake Restaurant  and Ruby like part time resident, respectively.

We appeal  sincerely and earnestly to  all residents and visitors to  Sakinaw Lake to accept personal responsibility that these  beautiful, regal-like creatures  are nurtured and protected  from all humanly-generated  harassment.  We appeal to power boat  operators, water skiers,  hunters, overly-exuberant  children, dog owners and all  people not normally exposed  to wildlife to guard and  succour these gorgeous  birds zealously.  Finally, we appeal to everyone to provide an environment  conducive to the health,  happiness and well being of  these rare and majestic birds;  where it is hoped they will  thrive, reproduce; and be on  aesthetic joy not only for  people at Sakinaw Lake  but for the residents of the  whole peninsula, as well as  being our legacy to the many  generations of our children  yet to cornel  1st Annual Spring - Summer "SHOPPING SPREE"  The Rainbow's End   I      Boutique  formerly Downtown Roberts Creek, now relocated on Tyson Rd.

We are not alone.  Pixie Daly lives on Redrooffs Road. Even with this  beautiful weather that we're  having she was a wee bit  disturbed to be woken up at  6 a.m. by what sounded like  the Little Drummer Boy  practising on a Peak Frean's  biscuit tin. A bleary eyed  investigation unearthed a  red-breasted sapsucker  attempting to drill a series  of holes in the drain pipe  outside her bedroom window.  The only problem, for both  Pixie and the woodpecker  was that the pipe was brown  painted metal, even if the poor  bird had managed a few holes  I don't think that the forthcoming sap would have been  very nutritious. It does say  a lot for the tenacity of the bird  that it kept at its work even  through a hail of miscellaneous objects aimed at it from  inside the house. Perhaps this  is the beginning of a new  breed of bird and in the future  little Johnny will come running into the house shouting,  "Mommy Mommy I just  saw a northern three-toed  metalpecker in the garden.''  Gray whales on the move.  I got a call from the west  coast of Vancouver Island  last Thursday. It was Barry  Campbell at the Pacific Rim  National Park, between  Ucluelet and Tofino. He was  asking if we had given any  space to the annual movement  of the gray whales along our  coast. Every year the migration from Baha in Mexico  from Baha in Mexico to the  Bering Sea and points north.  From counts done by the  Goodyear Balloon off San  Diego, the population is  estimated at between eleven  and thirteen thousand, (night  counts are not possible).  The migration begins in  February and will be continuing for a short while yet.  While he was talking to me  he could see five of them just  outside the surf line. There  was no mistaking the excitement in his voice. I don't  blame him; I remember  coming towards the top end  of the Island after ten days  of fishing and meeting two of  them. The trip had been  moderately successful, but  the weather had been bleak.  I had started my wheel watch  before daylight and as everything brightened up into a  muddy gray I could make out  land at Cape Scott (equally  gray). Suddenly the rising  sun broke through a thinning  section in the overcast and  sent silver shafts of light over  the bow, at the same time I  spotted the two whales quite  a distance off hugely making  their way towards me. They  passed in front of me. The  combination of these giants  and lighting effects from the  diffused sun was awe-inspiring. It brought back the fact  that man is still a relative  stranger on this planet.  Birds'n things.  The Marsh Society had another field trip last Saturday.  Twenty-three people showed  up and between them spotted  64 species from Porpoise  Bay to Hopkins. Here's some  of the more unusual ones:  American Widgeons, Black  Oystercatchers, Lesser  Yellowlegs, Dunlin, Yellow-  Bellied Sapsucker, Hairy  Woodpecker, Orange-Crowned Warbler, Harlequin  Ducks, an Osprey and a Blue  Grouse. Not bad for one  morning.  Vince Bracewell will be  leading another trip next  Saturday. Anyone interested  should be at the Sechelt  campsite in Roberts Creek  at 8 a.m. That's the camp site,  not the picnic area.  Vince is interesting to talk  to, he was telling me about the  Solinar tables. This is a set  of tables, rather like tide  tables, which, by calibrating  the positions of the sun and  the moon (hence the name)  claims that periods of animal  activity can be predicted.  The chart was made by  Richard Alden Knight. His  period of activity is now over,  but his wife is still publishing  them. The address is Box  207, Montoursville, P.Q.  17754. Vince is sending off  for one so I'll have a look at  his copy. If it works as Vince  says it does, it would be  a handy thing to have. Another observation he made,  while on Saturday's outing  was what could have been  a porpoise in Porpoise Bay.  He's not sure because he onl>  saw it briefly, twice.

The Sunshine  Second Front Page  In Sechelt  High density excessive-Victoria  "There appears to be an excessive provision of land designated for 'Higher Density Residential Use' considering the  basic character of the present community'.'This statement was  contained in a letter from the Senior Planning Coordinator of  the Provincial Ministry of Mundpal Affairs tod Housing dated  March 29,1979 and addressed to the Village of Sechelt's Acting  Clerk, Mr. Ron Gibbs.  It was one of the points contained In a letter which addressed  itself to what the Ministry sees as deficiencies in the Village's  Official Community Plan. Alderman Larry Macdonald referred  to this point while speaking against the first reading of the  zoning amendment By-law No. 146.5/1979 referring to Lot 18  and the remainder of Lot 10 for high density housing. The first  reading of the application for similar rezoning In connection  with the portion of Block 10, District Lot 303 and 304 now legally  described as Lot 18 was put and approved earlier during the  regular meeting of the Sechelt Village Council held on April 18  with Alderman Kilibas voting against the motion.  The applications are made wasn't considered desirable  for all of what was originally to have a mortgage against  Lot 10, an area of approxi- the whole parcel. Effectively,  mately 15 acres now divided however, this divided the  into two parcels. The land lies parcel, and so it has become a  North of Anchor Road on the necessary procedure to deal  West side of Porpoise Bay with two applications.

The Acting Clerk reported  that a letter objecting to the  rezoning from the Sechelt  Ratepayers' Association  had been received, and his  suggestion that this be referred to the public hearing  was accepted. The motion  was then put. Aldermen  Kolibas and Macdonald  voted against the reading, and  Aldermen Jorgensen and  Thompson voted for it.  "The ivory tower again,"  remarked Mayor Nelson in  reference to the letter from  Victoria, and he cast the deciding vote in favour of the  motion which was declared  carried. Alderman Macdonald  told the assembly, however,  that the motion should be  considered defeated since  our zoning by-law requires a  two thirds majority. Alderman  Thompson said that he  thought that this is the  way it used to be but that it  had since been changed so  that a simple majority carried  the motion. The Village Clerk  rxrs��%��*T)tr*#<9<%i|{.  cHAPPY  * Birthday  SIN BABYj  is to check the by-law.  When questioned by the  Cout News concerning plans  for the proposed development,  Un van Egmond said, "We  don't prepare plans until the  zoning has been approved."  He also noted that Mayor  Nelson and Alderman Joyce  Kilibas planned to attend the  Strata Title Seminar to be  held in Capilano College on  Saturday, April 21st, 1979,  and he hoped that a clearer  understanding of the sort of  development conceived for  Lot 10 would emerge from  the seminar. He felt that  Council at present were concerned with design and colour  scheme rather than fundamentals.  Further to Lot 10 as a whole,  Mr. van Egmond told the  Coast News that the dedicated park agreed to and subsequently developed as a result  of the 1975 proposal would be  in the wrong place unless  the whole area was rezoned as  originally proposed.  "What's good for the  village is good for a major  landowner," said Mr. van  Egmond. He termed himself,  "The least deserving of all  developers of boob and  kicks," and he was pained to  note that no one commended  the bird sanctuary which he  had landscaped and sold to  the Village at $5,000 per acre  for five acres. The property  had been part of a parcel he  had bought at $9,000 per  acre, Mr. van Egmond told  the   Coast  News,   and  he  Please ton to page thirteen  Gibsons news  2 lbs. butter  1 small onion, minced  11b. ground bool  1/4 lb. ground pork  1/2 cup milk  1/2 cup fresh bread crumbs  1 egg, beaten  1 tsp. salt  1/4 tsp. pepper  2 tsp. sugar  1/4 tsp. allspice  1/4 tsp. nutmeg  3 lbs.

Qood taste, low price, good nutritive value and  versatility have made It so. Creative cooks In  other countries have also learned to stretch  meat dollars while serving attractive end  satisfying meals. Native spices are used In  regional recipes to transform ordinary ground  beef Into taste-pleasing sensations.  Many of the recipes in this book were acquired during travels In other countries. The rest have been  collected over the years from friends and relatives.  Beef consumption in this country averages 95 pounds per capita per year. An estimated 40 percent of  the beef consumed is ground, which adds up to 38 pounds per person per year...now that's a lot of hamburger!  You will encounter three varieties of ground beef in your shopping. Fat content greatly affects price of  each.  GROUND BEEF Is made from meat trimmings containing about one-third fat. It Is suitable for broiled  hamburgers and recipes calling for the meat to be cooked and fat drained off - as In casseroles.  GROUND CHUCK is ground from the chuck section and contains less fat - making It perfect for meatballs and meat loaves.  GROUND ROUND Is the leanest of all.Thls variety is great for diet burgers, Steak Tartare and Beef  Burgers Wellington.  Grinding your own Is beet. With the aid of a food processor, it takes no time at all. This enables you to  control fat content, meat quality, and freshness. Watch for"speclals" on chuck steaks and roasts. Trim  away bones and fat and process according to the manufacturer's directions.  Freshly ground meat should be stored loosely wrapped In the refrigerator no longer than 24 hours after  purchasing. To avoid spoilage, it Is really best to buy ground meat the day you intend to cook It, or freeze it  for later use.  Store ground beef in the freezer not more than 3 months. It should be thawed In the refrigerator to  prevent bacteria growth that can occur If left too long at room temperature. Frozen meat used In recipes  calling for browned beef may be cooked slowly In a skillet while it's still frozen. Also, frozen meat patties  can be cooked in the frozen state. Thawed meat should never be refrozen because It Is likely to be unsafe  to eat.  Excerpts from ��� Tha Ground Beet Cookbook  by Joanna Waring Llndeman.

Developers rule  Page One  Village   Clerk,    R.C.Gibbs.  The letter reads as follows:  "Dear Mr. Otten:  Re: Condition of Trail Ave.,  peat piles on power line  right of way, etc.  This is to confirm that at the  Council Meeting held on 18th  instant, Alderman Morgan  Thompson said that he would  see what could be done with  respect to cleaning up the area  where the sewer line was put  in some time ago. Insofar as  the peat moss, etc., which has  been placed on the power  line, I must say that we have  not been able to find any bylaws which are violated in this  respect, but Alderman Thomson indicated that he might  be able to get together with  ^mmmm^mTmm*Mmmmmmmmm+m^'  See our *���  Bargain Shelf  for good buys  NDP Bookstore  other members of Council to  see if anything can be done.  Thank you for drawing this  to our attention.  Yours truly, for the Corporation of the Village of Sechelt, R.C.Gibbs, Acting  Clerk."  Stan Anderson of Pebble  Holdings told the Coast News  that the peat had been exchanged for bare sand upon  which nothing would grow.  He said that about 10,000  yards was involved of each,  and he denied the contention that more had been  brought in than had been  taken out. The peat, he said,  ("Call it rotting vegetation  if you wish.") was taken from  a low lying area where it  would never dry. The intention, he said, is to allow it  to dry and then to spread  and landscape it. He expects  the peat to be ready to spread  in late Summer or early  Fall.  The pot-holey road on airport property has been graded and ditched by the airport  committee, reported Alerman  Trainor to Gibsons Council  last week. "I am trying to  get some answers," he said,  "on ways the villages can  charge fees for the use of the  airport space by helicopter  companies which use the airport for as much as five or six  months at a time." The two  villages which pay a part of  or airport maintenance have  the authority to charge fees  but have no collector on hand  to do so. "The administration of the airport is a very  loose arrangement," Trainor  said, "and we are looking for  ideas to improve it."  A letter from Captain  M. Taylor, Commander  Maritime Forces Pacific,  states his regret that scheduled training prevents sending ships to Gibsons in  August at Cavalcade time.  Gibsons will have a visit,  however, from the Training  Squadron minesweepers  April 30 and May 1.

An application for approximately one acre of unused  crown foreshore in the Bay  area for a private ' marina  has been made to Land  Management branch, Ministry of Environment, by  Clarence Bleackley, who has  a postal address in Burnaby.

The Commission's view,  verified by legal opinion, is  that thc provisions of the Act  and the regulations take precedence over local bylaws.  Zoning bylaws that set up  residential or commercial  areas which in effect prohibit  farming use will be suspended  under the Agricultural Land  Reserve Ace."  Sewer  loans  Mayor Nelson addressed  the regular meeting of the  Sechelt Village Council  on Wednesday, April 18, 1979  on a new residential rehabilitation programme being developed by the Central Mortgage  and Housing Corporation.  The programme is intended to  provide loans, part or all of  which may be forgiveable  depending on financial circumstances, to assist homeowners with home improvements.  The loans may range as  high as $10,000, and Mayor  Thompson said that putting  in sewers is a home improvement.

Sunshine Coast Retarded Children's Association was one of the groups making a  report at the Community Forum.  In other Sechelt Village  Council news, it was moved by  Alderman Thompson and  seconded by Alderman Macdonald that the Council  advance up to S275 to the  Lions Club as the Village  share of a litter pick-up  programme for ten months  of the year, 1979. Alderman  Thompdon said that other  funding came from the  Chamber of Commerce and  from the Service Club itself  which co-ordinated the clean  up. He thought that it might  be possible to have this done  on a weekly basis, and told  the gathering that it might  be the Girl Guides who did  it one week, the Cubs another,  and so on. A cash bonus usally  accrued to the group which  did the best job. The motion  was carried.  It was moved by Alderman  Macdonald, seconded by  Alderman Thompson that the  Clerk be instructed to prepare  the necessary By-law to provide for the rezoning of Lot A,  Block 5, District Lot 1331,  Plan 2917 (Rockwood Lodge,  Jardran Construction Ltd.)  for apartment purposes for  consideration, if possible, at  the next meeting of Council  on May 2,1979, so the Public  Hearing can be arranged. The  motion was carried.  Alderman Morgan Thompson reported that the proposed  lane exchange between Ebb  Tide and Neptune was progressing favourably. Mr. Bob  Bull reported that an estimate  of $6,990 for paving has been  obtained, and it is expected  that a sketch plan will be  ready for distribution at the  Federal Election candidates  continued from page one  to the verge of bankruptcy,"  said Lazerte. The Conservative canadiate said that  Canada had paid $9 billion  on interest alone last year.  "We've got a government  making loans to Cuba and  Tanzmania (sic)," said  Lazerte, "and the average  Canadian can't afford to  borrow money to buy a  home."  Lazerte said that the Progressive Conservatives believed in foreign investment  rather than foreign control.  The third speaker was Sy  Pederson representing the  Communist Party of Canada.  Pederson, a falter and log  scaler for MacMillan Bloedel,  said that inflation and unemployment were the principal  issues in this election. "The  ratio right now is twenty  people unemployed for every  available job," said Pederson.  The Communist candidate  said that what was needed  was an all Canadian investment fund. He pointed out  that his employer, MacMillan  Bloedel, was Investing heavily  in Brazil and that this flight  of capital cou'd be seen in  the flight of Inco from Sudbury  after enjoying $300 million  of tax deferments in the past  several years. Inco also had  moved to South America.  Pederson urged that the  hours of work should be  reduced to thirty-two hours  a week without reduction in  pay. "90% unemployment  should be paid for the full  period of enemployment,"  said Pederson. "I'm sick and  tired of hearing that the  Canadian working man is  not producing enough.  There's a lot of money being  produced in this country,"  said Pederson,  The last speaker of the  meeting was the incumbent  MP Jack Pearsall of the  Liberal Party. In his interrupted presentation Pearsall  identified tourism, fishing  and logging as the three main  industries of this riding.  The Liberal MP pointed out  that this area had received  considerable   monies   from  the federal government  in all three areas over the  past five years. "I'm not  talking about promises but  actually received revenue,"  said Pearsall. He pointed to  the $330,000 received by the  village of Gibsons for the  Neighbourhood Improvement  Fund and a variety of other  federal contributions.  Pearsall pointed to his work  on the Small Crafts Harbour  comrriittee during his five  years in Ottawa and said that  there would have to be improvements made in Gibsons  Harbour very soon as well  as in Campbell River and Port  Hardy.  "I have served you to the  best of my ability for the past  five years," said Pearsall,  "and look forward to serving  you again.  In a rebuttal period allowed  each candidate Skelly said  that on the subject of leadership Ed Broadbent of the NDP  made specific suggestions  for curing Canada's ills;  Prime Minister Trudeau  displayed contempt; and Joe  Clarke was indecisive. Skelly,  a history teacher also pointed  out that the records of the  Conservative governments  in this century had been  uniformly bad.  Lazerte said that the NDP  party had kept Trudeau in  power from 1972 to 1979  and said that Broadbent  would support Trudeau  again. The Conservative  candidate also suggested  that the recently appointed  NDP Governor General, Ed  Schreyer may support Trudeau in the event ofa constitutional crisis. Jac Pearsall  of the Liberals said that he  was shocked to hear Mr.  Lazerte question the integrity of the Governor General  of the country.

In connection with the first  reading approved earlier,  Mr. Norm Watson presented  to Council a Letter of Intent  -from the Bank of Montreal  which is to be followed by an  irrevocable letter of credit.  Mr. Watson told the gathering  "Marine View Road is just  about ready for paving,"  and he said that the estimated  expense was $22,250.

Saturday, April 21. The students were presenting a  summary report of the seminar they had just taken on  Community Meeting places  during which they had concentrated on the village of Gibsons at the invitation of the  Steering Committee of the  Eileen Glassford Theatre  Foundation. Accompanying  them were their professors  John Hough and Don Vaughan  The students had not limited their consideration to the  narrow question of a theatre  and its suitable site, but rather  had looked at the location  and architecture of the village  of Gibsons as a whole. The  three, Elaine Horricks, Annie  Pedfret, and Bill Krohn,  presented their report in an  hour-long presentation, moderated by Coast News editor  John Burnside, which will  be shown shortly over Channel  10.  Basically, the students  noted that the village is  naturally divided into two  sections. There is the historic,  seaward facing village and  the flatter, newer portion  which the students found  admirably suited for the  services presently being provided there.  It was the unanimous  finding of the seminar that  the lower village was the more  suitable location for a theatre  cum meeting place. "It's  historically the more extroverted portion of the village.  People congregate there for  boating and fishing," said  Krohn. "On the top of the hill  people look after more private  concerns.  The students observed  that as the historic village  had grown there was evidence  of considerable ��� common  sense. "The houses are naturally terraced so that no one's  house interferes with the view  of the people living behind  them." The overall effect  was of the village facing and  embracing the bay.  Again and again the students stressed the importance  of the relationship between  the village and the sea both  historically and visually.  During the presentation,  the analogy was made of a  coastal home with the front  of the house facing the sea  and the access from the road  giving on to the back of the  house.   "In effect the bay  Wtflfiroonv J/lccthb  Located in Campbell's Shoes  Decorator Fragrance Guest Soap  Swedish Sauna Soap  Vitamin E Cream  Sea Kelp Hair Shampoo & Conditioner  Eucalyptus Oil  Bath O Is  Natura: Bristle Friction Brush  Natural Sponges  Loofah Sponges  Cowrie St.,   885-9345  Sechelt  Your friendly neighbourhood drop-off point for1  <0fQl4i\<Vy  mWMWmV    Classified Ads  Classifieds should be prepaid and pre-written  All Information In classified ad section of CoastNewSj  area and the view of the island  and mountains is the front  door historically and visually  of Gibsons," said the  students.  Another recurring theme  in the students' presentation  was the desirability of reinforcing in a harmonious  fashion patterns of development already found within  the village. "Any new structure, be it theatre or anything  else should be in keeping with  the harmonious relationship  between the lower village  and the sea it faces.  One perhaps controversial  contention of the students  was that the location of the  new marina in the bay area  was not a harmonious reinforcing of existing patterns.  They questioned the advisability of locating the marina  in a location which would  require constant dredging.  "It may be less expensive  in the short run but the long-  term necessity of dredging  more than counter-balances  this," suggested Krohn.  They also felt that in turning  a residential portion of the  village into a commercial portion the marina in the bay  would be a serious disruption  of the present pattern within  the village.  They pointed to the present  wharf as being the historic  gateway from the water for  the village of Gibsons and  stressed the importance' of  that gateway being maintained. They suggested that  if a theatre-meeting place  were to be located near the  head of the wharf, in the historic core area it would have  the effect of reinforcing  the historic pattern. Alternate sites for such a structure  would be on the rim of the  core, in the area by the fire  hall since it would have the  effect of linking the commercial area of the Lower Village  with the governmental area  past the fire hall.  The students saw the problem of parking as being less  of a problem than residents  consider it. "There is land,  for' parking available but"  it is not being utilized," said  Pedfret. The students pointed'  out that it is not unusual  anywhere to have to walk a  block or two after parking  one's car.  They also felt that some  provision should be made for.  pedestrian traffic in the Lower  Village by way of benches and  covered walkways to protect'  the pedestrian. They also felt  that some form of pedestrian  walkway along the edge of  the bay would enhance the  historic seaward facing of  the village and make the  Lower Village an attractive  place in which to linger and  visit.

Sojourn in Bangkok  Part   n  By David Hobson  There are no lack of touts or  previous visitors to direct  you to a parlour; we were  driven to one by an employee  who roams the entertainment  district looking for lascivious  looking men. of all ages and  races. We had no idea where  we had been let off but as  ���Soon as we entered the  building we were too fascinated to care. The "lobby" of  this one (we only visited the  one; there are apparently  parlours catering to the whole  range of money, class and  taste, literally from those  suited to royalty right down to  the sleaziest holes - from what  I could tell, this one was somewhere in the mid-range)  was large, low-roofed, with  a dim reddish glow settling  over the artificially elegant  decorations and furniture.  There was a bar and a few  tables to the left, and the  right...to the right was a sight  that I'm sure has thrust more  than a few people, male and  female, for varying reasons,  into tears. The entire wall  was a sheet of glass and  behind this massive window  were thirty to forty brightly  dressed young women,  drenched in cruel white light  and makeup, each with a piece  of numbered cardboard  hanging from her neck.  They sat like bored, sad little  dolls, filing nails, chatting  lifelessly, staring at a television or at their reflections  (from our side it was a "window", in fact it was a two way  mirror). Mike and I were met  by a very precise, businesslike lady carrying a tablet  covered in numbers who invited us to sit in one of the  couches facing this human  menagerie. We ordered beer  and increasingly felt like we  were caught in a Fellini  film that made sense. We  stared at this sight iu awe  and wonder as we would later  at the Taj Mahal and Himalayas - but all that was inanimate, dead, solid substance.  And it was very difficult to  believe these very re-\ and  alive human beings before us  were more than m?-nequins  on display at Eaton's, except,  of course, what was being sold  was not the clothes off their  backs but themselves.  Anyway, we were pressured  by the drill sergeant madam,  maybe she was expecting a  busy night, to choose our  companions. This was not a  particularly easy chore. There  was a wide range of bodies  and faces in front of us,  ranging in age from perhaps  twelve or thirteen to thirty, in  physical development from  fat to meatless and in facial  characteristics from what is  known as "plain" to what  has been deemed "beautiful." I personally was not  there to indulge in the pleasures of the flesh beyond what:  I'd heard (all the way from  Indonesia from otherwise  hard men whose faces melted  into rapt joy in recollection)  of the sumptuous massages.  Therefore it may have been  wise to have chosen a larger  woman, all the more strength,  perhaps, with which to  squeeze and batter my defiantly aching muscles and  bones into submission. But  I have a basic bias towards  slimmer, smaller ladies.  Also, succumbing to the  socialization that makes  mockery of the cerebrum, I  picked one of the beauties,  "Number 24, please,"  I said to our hostess, feeling  like a customer in a pizza  parlour. She took Mike's  number and soon Numbers 24  and 7 were sitting on our  knees, smiling quietly.  But down to serious business.  The hostess, explaining  prices: "You want sex, $10  one hour (of course she used  Thai currency, but that's too  complicated), you want  massage only, $5. Anything  funny, extra, girl tell you how  much. The sergeant gave me  a terse look when I handed her  five, and told me coldly  that if I changed my mind  later it would cost me a full  ten extra rather than five now.  Thanks, serge, but no.  To be continued  Creek  Auxiliary  By Lillian Shields  The usual monthly meeting  held in St. Aidans Hall.  24 members present.  President Pauline Lamb  opened the meeting with a  poem "It Takes So Little".  Secretary Marjorie Gibb  read the minutes of the March  meeting.  Gladys Ironside reported 11  members worked 165 hours in  the Thrift Shop. Bunny  Shupe's report revealed 16  workers worked 76 hours in  the Gift Shop, Library, Physiotherapy and extended care.  Lillian Thomas looks after  the cards and flowers from the  Sunshine fund; advising  everything in order. Madeline  Grose was away with the  flu but will have her Library  report at the May meeting.  As the Hospital Gift Shop  will not function from the  Lobby for the next four  months, the mobile cart will  be taken around the wards and  it is hoped a new cart will soon  be in use. Some areas will be  closed temporarily and the  hospital needs volunteers as  guides. Eileen Smith is in  charge of the schedule for this  phase of operation. The  thought was expressed that  summer students might apply  for this part-time work, perhaps with some Government  assistance.  More knitters are needed  for Gift Shop items. A wide  variety of goods can be  handled.  Charlotte Raines is again  Chairman of the Blood Clinic  to be held June 25th in the  hospital. She hopes this date  w.'l hold a high priority in  your scheduling.  Three beautiful knitted  bunnies were turned in for the  Gift Shop, a most appropriate  time. A game of Bingo was  donated for added pleasure  in extended care.  November 10th was set  aside for the Roberts Creek  Early Bird Xmas Boutique.  Members are reminded of  the Gibsons Friendship  Tea in Roberts Creek Community Hall, April 19th. As this js  our home ground it is hoped  there will be a good representation from our group.  May 14th will be the next  meeting in St. Aidans Hall.  Please note new time in the  evening, 7-8 p.m.  Piano  lessons  There will be an intensive  8 week piano course given  to adult beginners. The course  will teach music reading,  some basic theory and general  musicianship. This course is  intended for those with no  previous knowledge of music,  who are willing to practise  one hour a day for the duration  of the course. The class will  commence the week of April  28.

This is not because the  Community Health Centre  is involved in any serious  difficulties. Indeed, the clinic  is indisputably in better  shape at the present time,  doing a better job and receiving more support both from  the local public and from  government, than it has at  any time since it opened.  The outlook for the future  has never been more prosing.  This situation is well described in a recent letter circulated to the society's  members by the clinic doctor  Ronald Estey, M.D.:  "There is a completely new  staff at the Clinic. The first  person a patient meets upon  entering the Clinic is Gladys,  our receptionist-stenographer.  She has had ten years experience doing this type of work  in  a  Community   Clinic  in  Saskatchewan. It is a delight  for me to open a file folder  now and see things arranged  in an orderly fashion.  "You may have already  read about Trudy, the new  nurse. A local newspaper  interviewed her recently and  gave her front page coverage.  Trudy received her training  at the Royal Columbian Hospital. She worked in B.C.  for a while after receiving her  R.N., and then was off to  Ghana to do volunteer work  for C.U.S.O. She worked on  her own in a remote village  for three years running a nursing station. I am pleased that  %he has joined us here in  Pender Harbour - her competence is a definite asset  and we work well together.  "Anyone who has been driving by the Clinic lately will  notice the number of cars  parked outside. Unfortunately, far too many patients  have been simply dropping  in because previously it may  have been easy for them to be  "squeezed in". No one is  turned away from the Clinic,  but people arriving without  notice are now putting the  squeeze on other patients  and the staff. Please try to  make appointment!  "In closing I must thank the  Clinic Board, particularly the  chairman Mr, Tyner, for assistance, counsel and hospitality  since my arrival. I have found  their interest and responsive-  IAN  MORROW  &   CO.   LTD.  Marine Surveyors, Condition and  detail surveys for Evaluation.  Surveys for insurance claims.  Phone 886-2433,886-9458.

I  trust that we are rapidly achieving the medical services  desired in this community."  The upswing in the clinic's  fortunes of late can be graphically shown by quoting a few  figures. Previous to the arrival  of Dr. Estey and his current  support staff, community use  of the clinic had sunk to a low  of 163 patient visits per  month. In the new staff's  first month they more than  doubled this figure to over  500 patient visits. By March  the figure had almost quadrupled to 635 patient visits.  At the same time the clinic  has won recognition in Victoria as an important unit of  the province's health services,  recognition which has been  reflected in ready approval of  an increased budget. Credit  for this very important turn  of events must be attributed  to the excellent Victoria  contacts and negotiating skills  of the Clinic Board chairman  Jim Tyner, who continues to  be the leading force toward  the Board's long-stated aim  of making the local clinic the  best community clinic in the  province, providing care that  is not merely adequate but  excellent.  With all this going for the  clinic, one might fairly ask  why is the Sunday meeting  so crucial? The answer can  be put in a single word:  controversy. Unlike such rock-  ribbed institutions as village  councils, regional boards or  hydro corporations, medical  institutions  like  community  clinics do not bear up well  under controversy. They are  too fragile to last long as political footballs. And in spite  of the overwhelming public  support which the Pender  Clinic increasingly enjoys,  factional controversies which  have their roots in the long  and frustrating campaign  to establish the clinic continue  to cast their shadow over it.  For reasons that have little  to do with a sincere interest  in health and much to do with  political animosities, one  group with a history of hostility to the clinic has been campaigning for some months  to gain positions on the Board  at the upcoming meeting.  And for reasons that have  been made clear by the  clinic's increased use over  the past two months, the  Board some time ago made  a series of staff changes  which conerned some members of the clinic society  enough to call for a special  meeting. This special meeting  has been scheduled to follow  the regular general meeting  on Sunday and could serve  to generate controversy,  though hopefully it will have  the opposite effect.  The point all parties should  realize is that the opportunity  for success Pender clinic  now enjoys might not come by  again if it were spoiled by  internal dissension. It is therefore essential that all those  who support the ideal of a  successful community clinic  in the area come out Sunday  and show their appreciation  for the wonderful job that has  been done.
