 The Sunshine  Published at Gibsons, B.C.  15* per copy on newsstands  Serving the Sunshine Coast since 1945  July 25,1978  Volume 31, Number 30  Gibsons Council SedidtCpiiiidi  The most sought-after boat in B.C. is now tied to the Wharf at the Garden Bay  Marina in Pender Harbour. The Sunfish was being sought by the R.C.M.P.  in connection with the 13-ton marijuana seizure near Tofino recently. It was  found with only its bow above the water, floating in Hotham Sound in Jervis  Inlet. An attempt had been made to scuttle it, evidenced by five holes chopped  in the hull. As of 10 a.m. Monday, Superintendent Gardiner could give no  definite answer whether or not any drugs were on board, until a detailed search  was completed, probably late that day.  Woods  Closed ���  Hazard  Extreme  The general shutdown of B.C.  logging operations due to extreme fire-hazard, which saw  4,000 B.C. loggers off thc job  last week has shut down camps  along thc Sechelt Inlet, including  the Weldwood operation at Clowhom. Humidity levels as low as  38% and extreme heat were  cited as the main factors in the  shutdown. Thc following is from  a news release from the B.C.  Ministry of Forests, which  indicates how extreme conditions  are.'  Released: July 13, 1978  Weekly Forest Fire Report i  Victoria. B.C. ��� If British  Columbia's weather continues its  abnormally dry. warm and sunny  trend, the entire province could  be facing high to extreme forest  fire dinger for the balance of  the summer. H.O.Doerkson,  provincial forest ("ire suppression  officer, warned today.  He reported the northern half  of the province continues to  experience below normal rainfall and that drought conditions  arc creating serious forest fire  control problems there. Camp-  fire suspensions continued in  Zones R5 and R9 in thc Prince  Rupert forest district.  Ninety-four new fires were  reported this week, bringing  the total for this year to 790,  compared to 759 for the same  period last year.  The public is urged to used  extreme caution in thc forest  areas of the province and to  report any fires to the local  Forest Ranger or by calling the  toll free number Zenith 5555.  Strike Votes Taken  Strike votes have been held at three of the branches of the  Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce, which have membership in the union SORWUC.  The I'orl McNeill branch, the one in the Brookswood N.  Mall and the local one in Gibsons, have all voted in favour of  strike action if the union feels that it is necessary.  A meeting of the union was held in Vancouver on Sunday,  July 23, but no definite plan of action was decided upon. A  further meeting will be held on Sunday, July 30.  This predates by one day a hearing which will take place in  Vancouver, involving the Bank, the two former employees  Carol Dulyk and Eileen Quigley, and the Canadian Labour  Relations Board.  Carol and Eileen are protesting the decision of the bank  to withdraw its promise of rehiring them. The Bank's position  is thai the picketing action involvement was detrimental to the  Bank and feel justified in withdrawing their offer.  The view of Eileen and Carol is that legal picketing cannot be  held against au employee, and therefore the Bank is in the  wrong in refusing lo rehire them.  Public Utilities Meeting  W.G,Hamilton of the Ministry of the Environment,  asking for clarification on the  prescnl state of the waste  disposal sites in the area.  An answer will bc sent to him  advising that a study is  presently underway to  improve Ihe situation.  The Regional Board held a  Public   Utilities   mecing   on  Fatality  At 1:45 a.m. Sunday,  July 23, a two-car accident  occurcd on Highway 101  close to the Wilson Creek  Bridge.  Dead is Lawrence Hitchon  of Roberls Creek. His Fiat  apparently crossed Ihe road  and hit an oncoming vehicle  driven by Kelly Morrison of  Madeira Park.  Morrison was released  Iron'* St.Mary's Hospital  after being treated for head  wounds  By George Cooper  At Council meeting of July 17 committee reports disclosed  that the Coast-Garibaldi Health Unit has now moved to transfer  six staff positions to Gibsons. Requests to overlook the late  tax payment penalty were refused by Council; one of these  came from a bank whose office routine did not permit mailing  their cheque until the 10th ��� the last day to pay without penalty. The aquatic director, George Bodt, was confirmed in his  position; his six months of probation completed. With thc confirmation comes an increase in salary ��� the amount was not  disclosed at the meeting. Bodt was also given $500 moving  expenses from the Vancouver area. Ed Hauka has once again  applied to build a 50'x25' shed on his acreage off Shaw Road  with the intention of later building a house behind the shed at  some future time. Since this plan will prevent future small lot  subdivision, Council will ask Hauka to confer with the Planner-  Consultant on the Planner's next office day in Gibsons. B.C.  Hydro is completing a three-phase hook-up from Henry Road  to the new reservoir lot at a guaranteed revenue of $8,000  over four years. Alderman Trainor pointed out that there arc  many decisions yet to be made before Marina plans can be  said to be final, contrary to a report in this newspaper.  Council will rent its building ��� Council is studying an engineer  a former residence ��� on Prowse    report   on    Langdale    sewage  Road to a resident of Gibsons,  as a studio. Rent is $25.00 per  month plus utilities with the  understanding the building will,  be removed in due time to make  way for expanding boat launching  facilities.  T.Karkabe of MTR Holdings  (former Inglis family residence)  requests reapproval of his  neighbourhood pub project.  Council has decided to consider  only those applications for  licenses that have pre-elearance  from the Liquor Control and  Licensing Branch. A taxpayer  has remarked that the Liquor  people should get busy and  pre-clear all applications that will  meet their initial requirements  and return the applications to  the local government to decide  which one of the several will  get the go-ahead ��� and give  each time to get his presentation ready.  Council agreed to the reserving  July 20. First on the agenda  was a delegation from Redrooffs Road; their complaint  was that they were being  charged an extra dollar per  month on Iheir water user  rate, and wished clarification.  Al lhc present time thc rate  is S3.25 per month, plus an  additional $1.00 if the water  supply requires pumping,  The definition between those  on a pumping system and  those gravity-fed has now  become indistinct. The staff  has been asked to investigate  this and come up with an  averaging rate system.  A decision to call a halt to  evening sprinkling was necessitated by the present water  shortage, due to the lack of  rainfall and added consumption. An example of this can  be seen in the water tank on  Redrooffs Road, which has  the capacity for 150,000  gallons but which presently  contains only 20,000 gallons.  disposal sent to them by the  Regional District. Technically  and environmentally, thc report  states, an expanded Gibsons  facility is the best means to  look after this project. The  Regional District asks Council  if it is ready to negotiate.  At the beginning of the meeting Council heard a message from  a delegation representing the  International Meditation Society  concerning the benefits of TM  to both individual and community. By noting the coincidence of  a lessening of crime in a community when as few as 1% of  that community practice TM, the  society feels there is some  relevancy in the coincidence.  The society is about to campaign in B.C. for an increase to  2.5% of the population who  practice TM to see if the crime  rate drops further. To this end  society groups approach Municipal   Councils   to   enlist   their  of the  tennis courts  ��� three (assistance   in   monitoring   the  locations ��� for the Sea Cavalcade Tournament. The times will  be posted at thc courts. A new  home-owner's problem with  drainage from the street brought  the admonition from Alderman  Hume that the building inspector  take such potential problems  under consideration as conditions  of any future permit. Sargent  Road drainage near the dead  end of the street is causing  great concern to J.A.Foglietta  who began construction last  fall. Since the house is supported  mainly by concrete pillars, it is  particularly vulnerable to uncontrolled water run-off.  The Council/Tides-Take-Out  sparring match over thc meaning  of a zoning by-law, which has  been going on since early spring,  is still at a standstill. Matters  were slowed down when the  Village sent thc un-amended  edition of By-Law #311 to the  other side's lawyer. The Village  has also observed construction  underway on thc site without  the necessary permits being  applied for.  effects of the campaign. Council  did not discuss the proposal.  Local Rower  to Compete  A local man, Chris Milner, will  be competing in the B.C.Summer  Games to be held in Penticton,  from August 16 to 19 this year.  Chris will be entering the  1,000 metre single scull event  and is Ihe representative for  Zone 5, which consists of Greater  Vancouver, Burnaby and the  Sunshine Coast.  His placement in the competition was confirmed on Saturday  the ISth of this month, when he  outdistanced his competitor at  the Bumaby Lake trials.  Last year at the Hedley Regatta  the team Chris was rowing with  was eliminated in the third  round by Ihe eventual winners:  Ridley College of St.Catherine's,  Ontario. This year hc will bc in a  singles event, so the result may  be different.  Doubts were cast as to thc  validity of thc proposed economic-  study by the Sechelt Council at  their regular meeting on July  19. Mayor Nelson felt that thc  projected figures seemed lo bc  high, a fact that was corroborated  by a conversation with Chairman Almond of thc Regional  Board. A point brought up by  Helen Dawe was that two similar  studies had been carried out in  prior years, one by U.B.C. and  another by the Federal Government. She felt that if these two  studies had disappeared into  obscurity then another could  easily suffer a similar fate.  Alderman Lcitner reported  Ihat he had inspected Mr. Nctz-  law's lake, and in his opinion  there was no cause for concern at  the moment. When the rainy  season started he was assured by  Netzlaw, the water level would be  controlled. One fact, brought  up by the Clerk, Tom Wood,  was that in the case of a washout  on Ihe highway, Netzlaw should  realize that he could bc held  financially responsible.  A presentation was made to  Council by Mr. Hanson, a Transcendental Meditation supporter,  asking that the Village cooperate  in statistical information which  could help confirm the theory  that when the community reaches  2'/: % meditators, there should be  an upswing in the positiveness  of the area. It was felt by Alderman Jorgensen that this should  be conducted more on an individual level rather than through  the municipal government.  Alderman Kolibas' opinion of  the recent Health Unit seminar  held at Whistler was less than  glowing. She reported that  there was still dissention amongst  the members about the location  of the staff. There were also  complaints made by those in  Whistler about the location of the  hearing unit in Powell River. It  was felt to be an inconvenience  to take two ferries, necessitating  an overnight stay. Kolibas felt  that it was an unreasonable  complaint since only five people  from that area had used the  unit in the past year.  Excavation of fill from the  Glenmont properties adjacent to  the Hydro right-of-way is causing  some concern amongst the residents, who feel that their property could be left sitting higher than  the surrounding land, and consequently require retaining walls.  Honoured  It was officially announced  on Friday, July 21, that Patrick Lane of Halfmoon Bay  has been accepted for the  position of writer in residence  at thc University of Manitoba in Winnipeg, for the  1978-79 academic year.  This announcement comes  on the heels of thc publication  of Lane's eighth book. Selected Poems.  There was no chance of the parade bombing  out with fine costumes such as .this one,  worn by five year old Stefan Hawes at the  Coopers Green festivities on Saturday.  School Shake-up  A change in School administration at Pender Harbour  Secondary was indicated  in the July 20, 1978 Report  of the Management Committee of School District 46.  Among the Committee's  motions for consideration  and adoption by the Board  are: "That Mr. Frank Holmes  be reassigned to a teaching  position effective September  I. 1978"; "That the District  Superintendent of Schools be  authorized to conduct the  search for a principal for the  Pender Harbour Secondary  School prior to December.  1978 and that. "Mr. John  Nicholson. Director of Instruction, bc advised that in  addition to his regular responsibilities hc is hereby  assigned as principal in acting  capacity to the Pender Harbour Secondary School  until further notice". Nicholson, currently on vacation in  New Zealand, was unavailable for comment.  A spokesman for thc Pender  Harbour Secondary School  Concerned Parents Committee  indicated last week that the  Committee has been working  for a number of months pre  paring a brief on the management of Pender Harbour  Secondary School and to  prepare a "Code of Conduct"  for the school. What impact  on the proposed administrative changes al Pender Harbour this brief may have  had are uncertain at this  time but il is known that thc  Board considered the brief  al a meeting with the concerned parents.  Pender students will  hopefully enter a brand new  school this September and the  Concerned Parents group  is anxious to see things off to  a good start. Further developments on the administrative moves at Pender must  await the School Board meeting on Thursday, July 27 at  7:30 p.m. at the School  Board offices in Gibsons.  Also among motions for  consideration and adoption  is "That the District Superintendent of Schools bc  authorized lo second Mr.  Don Montgomery [former  Elphinstone principal] io  districl-wide duties, without  any special allowance for the  first semester of the 1978/79  schoolvear".  50ve^T*toif|  QUESTION: Whai do you  think aboul the new Gibsons  Marina Proposal?  Richard Abnuns  Resident of Lower Gibsons  Seeing the plans for the  new Marina validates once  again a pet theory of mine.  That is, City Planners and  all other efficiency-minded  bureaucrats, when given  several choices will inevitably choose the least aesthetic. As if they were rebelling  against Mother-nature or  perhaps their own mothers.  I think the whole lot should  be sent to shrinks before  they are allowed to plan  anything for this town.  Catherine Allan  Vancouver Resident  We don'i know much  about it but I think some of  the cottage owners down  past Armour's Beach are a  bit concerned about what it  might mean for them.

The plan, prepared by Victoria F.ngin-  eering (see Coast News. July 18, p.l),  calls for a 1.300 foot breakwater between  Hill's Machine Shop and thc Government  Wharf. Full development provides for  222 parking spaces for cars, and moorage  for an eventual 550 boats.  What is now a "funky", somewhat  sleepy and colourful little seaside village  will become a full blown tourist haven,  with moorage, stores, boutiques, restaurants and literally hundreds of visitors.  Residents, as revealed by comments in  this week's "Street Talkin' " (p.l),  have some concerns about what the  tourist hordes might mean to their  relatively sedate and peaceful wav of  life.  Although the plans are nowhere near  final approval, some such development  could begin as early as March, 1979.  Wc believe that while a marina development will significantly alter Lower  Gibsons, and while there are a number of  legitimate concerns, such development  is vital to thc life of the lower town.  Economic stimulation is essential to  breathe life into the village and while  moorage will assure that only during  the summer months, the spin-off devel-  Fishing  Recent Department of Fisheries restrictions on native fishing rights made  the editorial pages of several B.C.papers  last week. The facts of the case, complicated by years of tradition, custom and  negotiation, are not easily presented but  thc essential issue seems to be that on  the one hand Fisheries officials concerned with low salmon stocks have  begun I" cut further into traditional  native fishing rights in rivers and inlets.  On the other hand spokesmen for native  Indian groups have been demanding  fewer restrictions and the right to sell  salmon caught outside of the restrictions  commercially.  Native fishing rights arc a jealously-  guarded part of the way of life of B.C.  Indians. That native groups resent  restrictions of these rights is reasonable.  However, to permit the sale of unrestricted salmon, gives native fishermen an  unfair economic advantage over the non-  native fisherman, and as such ought not  to be permitted.  That liberal vvhitemen have groaned  under the yoke of guilt for the shabby  treatment of past generations of native  Indians goes without saying. Through  the   settlement   of  some   native   land  from the files of Coast News  5 YEARS AGO  Control of Ihe Community Hall is  a major area of dispute in Roberts  Creek. The dissidents are threatening to take matters into their own  hands if the dispute is not resolved.  In an article in the Coast News.  Mayor Ben Lang of Sechelt calls for  a Secondary School in Sechelt.  10 YEARS AGO  By a vole of seventy-two to one,  the Roberts Creek Community  Association voted to seek Regional  Board help to get quicker action to  get a supply of water for the area.  Gibsons water system is valued by  Dayton and Knight at $303,820.  Gibsons Council plans to bring to  the attention of the R.C.M.P. the  many complaints it has received  about noisy motorcycles.  15 YEARS AGO  Fire which broke out about 2:30  p.m Saturday caused close to $50,000  damage to Sechelt Inn. Seven  guests were registered at the time  and reservations had been made for  a weekend full house.  Frederick Charles Grantham,  after whom Granthams Landing was  named, died July 19 in a Vancouver  opment of businesses and accomodation will bring money, employment and  business to what can now only be termed  a moribund community.  What are thc concerns of local residents'.' The most commonly expressed  concern this week came, interestingly  enough, from residents who wondered  about the aesthetic impact of such  development. They were concerned that  thc marina would destroy thc natural  beauty of our little harbour.  That a chaotic hodgepodge of floats  and anchorages could be construed as  having a "natural beauty" is surprising.  That scrub-infested slopes and ramshackle buildings could be viewed as  anything but the symptoms of a dying  town is amazing.  Presently moorage facilities in Gibsons  are outrageous. Boats are tied side by  side, decks are trampled and made  filthy by yachtsmen scrambling over  other boats. Pleasure boaters complain  of the inequities of moorage rates for  commercial boats as opposed to those of  pleasure boats. All in all. the present  situation is an embarrassment.  Let's have development; the sooner  the better. But in the meantime, let the  Gibsons Council scrutinize the plans  carefully to make sure that what development takes place is environmentally  sound and an aesthetic credit to what  could be once again, "the natural beauty  of our harbour".  claims and through federally supported  economic projects, some effort to atone  for the sins of our greatgrandtathers has  been made.  In an industry as capitol intensive as  fishing, it has been claimed that Indian  fishermen are put at a disadvantage  to their rich white competitors. This may  be the case. But to give one group of  fishermen in an intensely competitive  business, a clear economic advantage is  not the way to solve this problem.  Tremendous advances have been made  in the economic condition of native  peoples by the granting of government  loans and grants for native projects.  The Sechelt Indian Band for one has been  able to significantly upgrade the economic status of its members by skillfully  promoting and investing in businesses  in which their band members can participate.  This is the way to protect native  rights. Encourage these projects, allow  Indian people the opportunity to participate in the economy with the aid of  government funds but to change the rules  for one group and not another invites  inequity and ultimately, disharmony,  hospital in his 93rd year.  Fire caused $25,000 damage and  destroyed three well-built homes on  the Mackenzie property at Mackenzie's Cove in Centre Bay.  20 YEARS AGO  A strike on the Black Ball Ferry  system caused the Boards of Trade of  Pender Harbour, Sechelt and Gibsons  to telegram the federal member of  parliament urging that it be speedily  resolved.  A Sechelt couple, Charles and  Doris Webb, were shot and wounded  while setting out on a shopping trip.  The gunman later committed suicide.  No explanation for the shooting  was available.  25 YEARS AGO  In preparation for a federal election, candidates Bob Bryce for the  C.C.F. party and Jimmie Sinclair  for the Liberals will speak in the  area this week.  Sunday, the Jervis Express, Gulf  Wing and Snow Prince were all  docked at the Sechelt Wharf.  30 YEARS AGO  Not available.  .'U**  ���W*k*;  '%$&*  ---'IH-tJ  Hopkins Landing, 1938.

L.R.Peterson  ��*&amm*  ztS&L  Musings  John Burnside  Slings & Arrows  George Matthews  The great old cavern of  the C.P.R. terminal at the  foot of Granville Street in  Vancouver is astir with life  in thc June-time of 1976  but little of it has to do with  the railway. The ghosts of  pic:.w.- 'i\iv5ia and departures, the uncertainty of New  Canadians arriving in this  most distant colony, the joys  of reunion and the tears  shed for men off to fight two  world wars a continent and  an ocean away, the very warp  and woof of the nation's  history are swept aside and  disregarded in this latter day  bustle.  The station is the site of a  hundred booths for local  handicrafts somehow and  unconvincing!)1 associated  with the Habitat U.N. Conference. Sensitive and  serious-looking young men  and responsible and obviously  liberated young women are  exhibiting their pottery and  their carving and their  homespun blankets. Guitars  are being strummed in various  corners and the people who  have come to take or meet a  train are a somewhat sad and  insignificant minority.  In the fifties and sixties  two transcontinental C.P.R.  trains a day arrived and  depaned from this terminal.  Tile Dominion and The Canadian. Now there is one. It  is probably called The Canadian but this is by no means  clear and no one seems to  care, li is fifteen minutes  before the departure of the  esstbound train and a small  line-up of passengers stands  before the single wicket:  "No reservations required,  sir."  Twenty years ago a line  of officious, efficient and  frlendl) lickel clerks bustled  and phoned and took ostentatious care of the embarkees.  Now a somewhat tired looking  middle-aged lady dispenses  tickets and information. The  information desk is closed. A  supervisory type sits idly  by and one feels thai this little  flurry of activity is but an  interruption in their slow,  sad conversations. They have  the look of people who know-  in their bones ihat iheir  services are no longer valued  by their employers.  Downstairs, where the  trains are. things arc better,  more familiar. There wail the  white-coated porters at the  doors thc length of the train  and the uniformed and the  avuncular conductor checks  the time on his vest pocket  watch. Whatever else is  changing he still has a train to  run.  There are fewer cars on  the train than heretofore. In  the fifties a passenger train  through the Rockies might be  twenty-six cars long. Now  there looks to be about eight.  They arc silver cars purchased  by the C.P.R. in the fifties  with domed observation  ���cars at the rear and near the  front. At the time their purchase had been a stroke of  competitive one-upmanship  over the Canadian National,  w liich railroad had just bought  its own new equipment sans  observation cars, and they  were a telling factor in C.P.R.  publicity at the time. Now  they are aging and while  still in fairly good shape they  must soon be replaced. They  probably won't be.  The one-way coach fare  Vancouver to Calgary is  $43.00, A lower berth for one  night is $41.00. A pillow rents  for 45c and I am travelling  coach with a pillow. Travelling time between Vancouver  and Calgary is twenty hours.  The bus is cheaper and faster, yet there remains a quite  magical charm to rail travel  and shortly after the train  slides out of the station it  begins io assert itself independent of the intentions of the  C.P.R.  It may he associated with  thc soothing, rocking motion  of thc going, the sense of  tranquil security not available on Greyhound buses nor  on airlines whatever their  safety record. For some it  is undoubtedly enhanced by  the availability of alcohol,  not dispensed in silly little  bottles lo thrce-abreasls  forty-thousand feet in the  air. but honest-to-God ready  mixed drinks served by the  inevitably cheerful personnel  one finds on trains, facing  one's fellow passengers  while past the wide window  slides some of the world's  finest scenery. The best  pubs in North America arc  being pulled half-empty  across the continent by rail.  Whatever the reasons,  we. thc train crew and passengers, arc engaged in convivial  and contented conversations  before we have passed  Coquitlam.  Three French-Canadians  have taken their stand in thc  rear observation car. Apparently familiar with the joys  of train travel they are intent  on a three-day party. Apart  from them there are few  Canadians. The observation  cars are filled by Americans  and New Zealanders, by  Welsh  and  Scottish  tourists  and their delight is vociferous  as the train climbs into thc  mountains with the mighty  Fraser in Spring spate boiling  below and here and there  round rock outcroppings thc  trestled remains of thc first  precarious road through the  Fraser Canyon.  A man from Moose Jaw is  going home on this train.  He is a veteran of the Second  World War in Italy and of  hundreds of logging camps  and pulp mills in British  Columbia and of a thousand  bar-rooms. Hc hunches  silver-haired and inflamed of  face in a corner of thc cafeteria car and the stewards  keep them coming and hc  growls a hundred stories to  a scries of willing listeners.  He is unmindful of the mountains ��� perhaps he has  climbed too many. Late at  night hc finds a fellow and in  the scat ahead of me they  share a flask. Later still in  the middle of the night.  the train stops on thc outskirts of Kamloops yards  and the old-timer raises his  head from the window ledge  and peers out into the darkness at the freight cars on  either side.  "Where the hell are we."  he growls. "Down some goddam alley," hc answers  himself and goes back to  sleep.  As night falls, upstairs  alone in the observation car  is the surprisingly young  foreman of a C.P.R. track  crew based in Revelstoke.  Hc talks of snow and rock  slides across ihe track; of  shrinking rails in the cold  weather: of the peace and  beauty of ihe mountains. He  is unmarried and the money  is good.  "Days off we sometimes  fly to Vegas. What thc hell,  a bit of fun and some bright  lights, eh?"  To he Continued  So much for naive idealism.  I'm as idealistic as the next  guy, in my fashion, but watching the lamb led to ihe  slaughter as in the case of  Fred Reid and thc B.C. Land  Commission was enough to  titilate my cynical streak.  Thc case runs something  like this land the fad that poor  Fred appears to have been  suckercd by the Vancouver  Sun is iio sniall contributor  to my cynicism): Fred Reid  was a soil scientist for the  Agriculture Department who  was frequently seconded to  the B.C.Land Commission to  investigate land in the Agricultural Land Reserve (ALR)  for which owners sought exclusion, usually for purposes  of commercial or residential  development. (Let me remind  you here, that only 4.4% of  B.C.'s total land mass is in  the ALR.) At twenty-six.  Fred was considered exceptionally good at his job. even  though it is said that lie was  not always as objective as he  might have been and had a  strongly political, conservationist bias, which is good. 1  think.  Several months ago approximately seventy-five acres  of Class Two (extremely  good agricultural land)  property which borders the  Sidney and North Saanich  municipalities on Vancouver  Island, was brought to the  attention ol the Land Commission when the Sidney Council  applied to have the land excluded from lhc ALR. Thc  property, at that time, was  used as pasture land and hay  crop. Thc Sidney Council  presumably wanted thc land  excluded to allow full commercial, residential and  industrial development.  The Land Commission,  which by thc way was one of  many valuable innovations  of the former NDP government, investigated the property and recommended to the  Provincial Cabinet (the body  responsible for deciding  on exclusion applications  from municipalities) that thc  laud is so valuable as producing farmland Ihat it should  nol bc excluded from B.C.'s  slowly diminishing Agricultural Land Reserve. The  Cabinet, in a rare, though  not unprecedented move,  rejected thc Land Commission's recommendations  and the land was. against the  Commission's advice, excluded from the ALR and Sidney  was permitted to spill over  into this valuable piece of  agricultural    land. What  influenced thc unusual  Cabincl decision is not of  course a matter of public  record.  Enter "Don Quixote"  Reid. Al the pointy end of  this now excluded holding  was a small (10���20 acre)  triangular shaped property  jutting into the Municipality  of North Saanich. now left  surrounded by developed or  developable land. The owner,  naturally, applied to the Land  Commission to have his land  excluded for the ALR as well.  The Land Commission asked  Reid lo investigate the exclusion request and when hc  had done his usual, thorough  job. his report recommended  thai the land not be excluded.  The Land Commission  however, realistically appraised the situation as being  untenable for the owner of  the small holding and against  Reid's report decided to  exclude.  Reid reacted, as he appar-  enly had done before and went  to THAT woman who writes  in the Sun and cried ihe blues.  THAT woman wrote the story,  in fact lour consecutive  stories: Fred was interviewed  on T.V. and a fuss was made  in w hlch lhc Land Commission  was accused of giving awav  all of B.C.'s farmland. The  axe came down on poor Fred  AND SA Y OF WHAT YOU SEE IN THE DARK  Now with these words the book of the sky  closes. Darkness cries the news lo bats  whofly in alphabets no man can read.  The kildeer quiets on her nest  and rests ihe wing she lied with  when she drew the man away.  Night is the image of running  water and what runs beneath:  stones who know no wind.  trees who lean above  the broken banks their lives.  Darkness crouches. The sky  closes on ihe animal: ihe spider  wiih one leg poised on hunger,  the black fly concealed in leaves.  My lire creates the night  I am surrounded by. The image  and what runs beneath.  The silence following sound.  Thai which is bound and that  which is undone.

Everything from thc zany  costumes, the boundless energy  and high spirits, to thc well-  planned events and the incredible  array of good food, combined to  make this a perfect celebration.

Unfortunately, Fred had  made his big fuss in order  to preserve what he thought  was almost ninety acres of  prime agricultural land,  not sixteen. Fred, for all of  his thoroughness, had neglected to find oul aboul thc  adjoining seventy-five acres  which lhc Socred Cabinet  had given away a little while  before. Fred, needless lo  say, looked pretty foolish,  standing up and being  counted for a piece of property  smaller than thc Elphinstone  School grounds, bul such is  the penalty for thc naive  idealist. Fred got thc chop,  thc Sun got several inches of  copy, thc Cabinet got off  scott free, and the Land  Commission, quite undeservedly, were made to look like  thc villains of the piece for  a reasonable, and in fact,  inevitable decision.

I phoned to make an appointment to be picked up in a wheel  chair at Roberts Creek in the  afternoon, to be told flatly by  Miss Bunyan. the bus driver, thai  it was impossible, as she had  eight youngsters tu drive lo the  Day Care School in Wilson Creek  Community Hall. 1 asked her if  she could take me on any other  day. Thc answer was a flat,  "no". The reason: the seats  could not be removed.  Wasn't that thc idea of a larger  Mini-Bus being acquired? Every  person on thc Peninsula helped  lo raise the money. Nearly everybody bought a little white felt  dog for the price of SI.00. I  still have mine.  For what ��� a baby carrier?  I do nol think so. As for myself. I will never ride the Mini  Bus again, but maybe it may  make it easier for those Senior  Citizens to use it.  My family and I have owned  property since 1923.  Grace Cumming,  Roberts Creek. B.C.

The other day at lunch time I  was getting the gas tank filled  when the young attendant came  over and asked me to ask another  driver of a car to please put out  her cigarette while he was filling  her tank. I did as I was asked  and also suggested thai she  switch her engine off. She did  not comply with cither request  and obviously thought it was no  business of mine anyway, and let  me know in no uncertain terms  that she had never heard of any  accidents happening, and therefore, according to her. they were  not going to happen here. I  felt sorry for her and also for thc  gas attendant who. because of his  young age, did nut feel competent  J^ammma.

If there  was a sign where everyone could  see it, it would give a big moral  boost to thc sometimes quite  young attendants.

"Hey,  you'd better get with it,  man!" Blearily, I roll out and  shrug on my clothes. I am  certainly not sorry to leave  this urinous, apallingly-  shabby little room to which  our poverty has reduced us.  Chris has gallantly opted to  w alk clow n �� lth mc. I grab my  suitcase wilh the caulkboots  tied to thc handle (an old  logger's device, I've just  learned) and we depart those  dreary confines in relief.  It is coming on dim daylight in the clammy streets  and foggily drizzling as  usual Chris has a couple of  bucks on him. He stands me  to toast and coffee in an all-  night cafe full of fishermen,  dock-workers, guys from the  railyards, and a few durable  drunks who have escaped a  night in the Crowbar Hotel  and carried right through.  We sit among them and  don't talk much. There  s.'iould be plenty to talk about  bin we can't muster the  words. It is time to go.  We make our way to the  float where the campboat  SMMnaaekCCZESI IstlM/toe*  Pages  from a  Peter Trower  Life-Log  waits, its engine already  snorting exhaust-smoke into  the chilly air. George Crad-  doek, my new employer  stands there, his lined, woods-  weary face bearing a faint  smile. "Good to see you made  it," hc says. "Guess we may  as well shove off."  "Looks like this is it then,"  I say somewhat mournfully to  Chris and stick oul my hand.  "Jesus! I wish you were  coming too."  "So do I, sure as hell,"  he admits, "but we'll make  out okay. Billy's springing for  some grub and we'll grab a  freight out of here tonight.  I'll write you as soon as wc  get settled someplace. Look  out for yourself, eh?"  "Yeah, you too." There's  nolhing else to say and Crad-  dock is waiting. 1 untie the  bow-rope, climb aboard and  watch Chris' slight form move  off up the ramp to disappear  from view. God knows when  we'll see each other again.  Suddenly, I'm full of apprehension and forboding.

I stand on deck among the  tarpaulin-covered supplies  in the faint, wind-flicked  drizzle, watching thc brown  docksprawl of Rupert retreat  into foggy distance. Thc boat  plods doggedly southeast  through a moderate chop.  The shoreline now is thick-  treed and featureless except  for the odd lonely settlement.  Far lo our right, mysterious  islands sulk in the mist.  It begins lo rain heavily ���  great, splashy drops. I get  the hell inside and find a  seat.  Craddock introduces mc to  the boatman, Les Carver, who  is lantern-jawed, bespectacled, looks like a misplaced  preacher. He grins thinly at  me and turns back to his  steering. Craddock quizzes  me briefly about my experience. I lie a bit, not wanting  to admit how green I really  am. The job is only blowing-  whistles but I've never done  it before. My few weeks at  Sandspit were spent mainly  on the bullgang. Still, Chris  has given me a list of the  signals. I figure I can muddle  through.  Craddock, patently not a  man of many words, applies  himself to a grimy Luke  Short pocket western. 1  light a cigarette, lean back  and try to sort out the haphazard events that have  brought me to this point.  The images tumble through  my mind like chaotic pieces  in some sordid jigsaw puzzle.  1 think mostly of Prince  Rupert, that boozy, brawling  whore of a town. I have  finally slipped her clutches  after weeks of madness and  ill-spent money. We certainly  were not very well-heeled  when we first hit the place  after the brief stint at Sands-  pit but we were bound to  celebrate anyhow. Both Chris  and Verne Turner, our partner, had been there before  and knew which pubs turned  the blindest eye to underage drinkers. We proceeded  to sample their heady wares  with enthusiasm. Those  first reeling days are a run-  together blur of overloaded  beer-tables, greasy-spoon  cafes and gallons of wine in  scruffy hotel-rooms, shared  w ith willing Indian girls.  On one latter occasion, our  illegal dalliance with a trio of  comely up-Skccna girls was  interrupted by a sudden  violent banging on the door.  We all froze. If it was the  cops, we were for it on several  counts. Verne was the only  one of us over twenty-one and  giving liquor to Indian girls  was severely frowned-upon.  Then a raucous voice hollered:  "Open up, you bastards!  I know you've got my old lady  in there!"  At least it wasn't the cops.  We kept dead-silent, hoping  he'd give up and go away.  Then something, either a  shoulder or a foot, hit the door  with great force. The lock  gave way with a tearing sound  and he came flailing through,  a white man of medium-  size, wild blonde hair hanging  over a rage-contorted face,  obviously far-gone on booze.  "You bitch!" he shouted at  one of thc frightened girls.  That is all he got a chance to  say. Verne must have been an  old hand at this sort of situation. He came off the bed  like a coiled spring, knocked  the intruder flat with a body-  block and sat on him. "Listen,  buster," he said reasonably,  "we ain't looking for any  trouble but you just kicked in  the wrong door. Now, I'm  going to give you a chance to  get your butt out of here  peaceably. If I were you,  I'd take it. Otherwise "  The guy got the picture.  Verne let him up and he  exited hurriedly, all the fight  knocked out of him. "I'll  be   back   with   the   cops!"  2  C\&  ms^d molluslc "treat  ^��Escdrgcrl"'v>sixsloLO creepies served inspsnal sauce.  sFroaLags <*> a chorus op sddreed amphibians  pHear^Honernade Soop <*> ro-m-m-m-mi  ^LortloirnsClanCr\ouxler ^ our specially  @neu>7ork Steals io^.arEal +asiifnsariditri choice  op mushrooms   or onion rinqs  gSifealc*Crab *��� (=> ����� fYllfil-uJith kirw Crab leas  oPF,  pbrrf  eJ-fecif ic Salmon c= a. saaPcod fanciers del icjhr  ^Captains Plate ��"& hasty combina+ionofcrab,  Scallops, praouos a ousWrs '  ^Cordon Bleu *�� breast of chicken stuffed u/itr.  ham ��* Swiss chee.se TrS^ri3rTv,orherecrlinan  (aromatic  3&uc&  ��RacJc Op Lamb <^> rn<arinetted    in   herb  s&uce and  Cooted -fo perfection  Twilight Theatre  ��F(lef. flusbera <^>,tender slices  topped with Xresh mushrooms,  ana horseradish  ilei-Miqnon  mesan cheese  .All   dinners .  include   salad   with , house���  dress inq , potatoes,   or nee. plus .choice   of-  J     'garlic   orgWeese oread |_  eLord .Jim's Cheesecake  @ ft selection   of   Pine pastries    or  cake.

While this was  unlikely, we prudently broke  up the party and retired to a  bar. The Rupert cops had a  reputation for being singularly  nasty. We wanted no truck  with them.  That more or less marked  the end of our initial debauch.  Already our skimpy stakes had  dwindled to the danger-  level. Chris recalled the  construction-project that had  brought us to Rupert in thc  first place. We checked the  agency and to our mutual  amazement, were hired on  thc spot.  Port Edward is a fishing  village, a few miles up-  Skecna. Thc construction-  site was on a several-acre  mudflat just behind it and the  first steel was already going  up. We had been employed  by a sub-contractor who made  cement-blocks in a Rube  Goldberg portable factory.  Here we toiled for poor wages  amid curses, clatters and  clanks. Something was always  breaking down to the angry  roars of the foreman who  flailed blame around indiscriminately. But it was a job  and at least we were working  under a roof.  Port Edward itself was a  slapdash jungle of rundown  riverside shacks, scattered  around a fish-cannery. Some  evenings, wc braved the awesome reek of the reduction-  plant, to hang around the  poolhall or listen to the  cowboy jukebox in thc Indian  cafe. For the rest, we seques-  ft  Operation  Ufotujc  Did you know that you  must ride your bicycle for  45 minutes to burn the  calories contained in a  simple piece of apple pie?  tered in the barren bunkhouse, suffering colds and  melancholia.  After less than three weeks,  the required number of blocks  had been produced and the  entire crew was laid-off.  We were not exactly brokenhearted about leaving Port  Edward but we still hadn't  made much money. Those  elusive winter-stakes seemed  further away than ever.  Beached in Rupert once  more, we vowed to find more  work of some nature before  the money was gone. In the  sopping optimism of the bars,  we squandered our days of  grace.  It was another groggy  montage of meaningless  events: waitresses with  several kids and no false  illusions, taking us home with  them to damp apartments  by the ratty waterfront;  half-recognized rounders on  floaters from Vancouver,  street-talking us in pubs ���  "Hey, man, what's happening  down on Hastings?"; a white  girl ditching me in the middle  of a date because someone  tips her that I've been consorting with Native girls;  much random movement;  little direction; Rupert in the  rain.  Rupert in thc perpetual  August rain where they have  seemingly never heard of  the sun or summer. "What  the hell's that?" laughs a  snakey old man in a bar.  We dream of toast-warm  beaches; balmy evening  parks and street-canyons;  outdoor-dances, jazz-concerts  and sweet city girls, five-  hundred miles south. Nothing  but this saturated reality to  wet our whistles in and try to  blot out. "Careless hands  that can't hold on to love or  money either.

General Notes: Of great astrological importance is the movement of Saturn into thc sign of  Virgo where it will remain until  1980. Saturn symbolizes responsibility, discipline, restrictions, delays and thc ability tu  learn life's hardest lessons.  Those of you possessing a  personalized astrological chart  should find out through which  'house' or life department  Saturn will pass during this  period. Meanwhile, thc following  prognistications point to those  areas where necessary restrictions and experience may bc felt  during thc next Iwo yean. Keg  ular weekly predictions continue  not week.  ARIES (Much 21-Aprll 19)  Restrictions and delays may bc  closely linked to employment and  health matters. There will be  extra responsibilities and hard  work on the employment scene.  Lack of future job opportunities  could bc source of frustrations.  Aches and pains could become  chronic health condition and. as  usual, professional reassurance  should be sought.  TAURUS (April 20-May 20)  Social life, amusements, and  pleasures should start to wind  down. Being in a more serious  frame of mind, you won't miss  them. Love affairs and children  will be taken more responsibly.  Wild parties and outings should  lack their old appeal. Bc warned  that gambling, speculation and  get-rich-quick schemes should  rrove a waste of time and money.  GEMINI (May 21-Junc 21)  Accent is on heavier responsibilities linked to thc home and  family. Overdue domestic problems will have to be worked out  realistically with much patience  and understanding. It's no time  to dabble casually in any land or  property deals. Advice is to  conserve and improve existing  real estate commitments. The  affairs of both parents may have  delaying effect.  CANCER (June 22-July 22)  Expect to bc in a much more  serious frame of mind during the  next few years. Others may find  you more difficult to communicate  with but simply tell them you're  through with trivia. Frustrations  could be linked to thc affairs of  brothers, sisters, and close  neighbours. Short journeys.  local visits, and day-today routines could become monotonous.  Smile often.  LEO (July 23-Aug.22)  Affairs linked to nuances and  possessions arc thc source of  upcoming delays and frustrations. Money will bc tight and  advice is to hold on to whatever  savings you've accumulated.  You'll be forced to learn the real  value of money. It's time to take  stock of personal property and  question money-consuming luxuries which have lost their original appeal.  VIRGO (Aug.23-Sepl.22)  As Saturn enters your sign,  advice is to take pencil and paper  and spend a couple of hours  noting your personal strengths,  weaknesses, and future goals.  During the next few years, you  w ill have to face yourself honestly  and begin to get rid of all self-  defeating habits and attitudes.  It's time to contact that wonderful person inside you and prepare  for happier days.  LIBRA (Scpl.23-Oct.23)  During   thc   next   few   years  you'll truly feel like withdrawing  from thc world lo enjoy your own  company. Seclusion, peace, and  quiet appeal as never before.  Advice is to express these feelings to loved ones to avoid  misunderstandings. Soon your  life will bc associated with large  institutions, hospitals, prisons,  asylums, sacrificial journeys and  service toothers.  SCORPIO (Ocl.24-Nov.22)  Past irresponsibilities may soon  be the cause of delays to long-  range future goals. Disappoint,  nients could be linked lo not  gelling what you expected. Advice is to approach further  prospects with greater responsibility and determination. You'll  soon be asked lo devote extra  time and energy to group associations and community projects.  New friends and acquaintances  will teach vou lhc most.  SAGITTARIUS (Nov.23-Dec.21)  Your honour, position, status  and public standing will soon be  tested lor genuine worthiness.  During the next Iwo years you'll  cither rise to a respected position  or tumble carelessly and reap  nolhing. It's up to you. Answer  is lo stick to conservative procedures and maintain impeccable  reputation. Being respectful  to authority figures brings rewards.  CAPRICORN (Dcc.22-Jan.19)  Your philosophical attitude  toward life is about to become  deeper, more profound as you  begin a more serious search for  true understanding. This is the  time to lock yourself away in some  place of higher learning. Your  mind will be anxious to explore  and discover new -concepts and  ideas. Long journeys taken soon  will bring valuable experiences  rather than passing pleasures.  AQUARIUS (Jan.20-Feb.18)  Accent will be on added responsibilities regarding other  people's money. You'll be expected lo guide loved ones  through financial troubles and  mix-ups. Affairs linked to insurance, taxes, inheritances  and bunk loans could result in  frustrating legal difficulties.  Advice is to have reputable  law vera! thc ready.  PISCES (Fi-b.l9.Mar.20)  The quality of your relations  with others, especially close  loved ones, is about to bc tested  for genuine caring and sustaining  power. Relationships which have  become stale and sour will either  be revitalized through hard work  or sadly abandoned. Those of  you still single will learn the  benefits of responsible companionship during the next two  years. Good luck.  Musical  Trio  Coming  On Friday.

They are all subjects  on which almost everyone can  be counted upon to hold  strong, even irrational, opinions. As a result it's virtually  impossible lo say anything  on any of Ihese subjects  wilhoul offending or annoying  someone. Times, however,  have changed, and lhal is  really what politics is all  about.  Like most Inflammatory  subjects, politics suffers  from a broadness and vagueness of definition. We use  lhc phrase "playing politics"  to refer to all kinds of interpersonal, inter-departmental,  and International trouble-  making. The word "politician" (one who engages in  political activity, for lack of a  better definition), has fallen  into disrepute, causing public  pundits to coin epigrams like  "Politics is too important lo  be left to politicians". My  Pocket Oxford Dictionary  gives several definitions  for the word "politics".  The first is "science of or a  treatise on Slate organization, affairs of state, questions of policy". Into this  category fall most written  works on the subject; Plato's  Republic, Aristotle's Politics,  Hobbcs' Leviathan, Rousseau 's Social Contract, More's  Utopia. Marx's and Engel's  Communist Manifesto, Mill's  On Liberty. Hitler's Mien  Kumpf. Chairman Mao's  little Red Book, and our own  Pierre Elliot Trudeau's  Federalism. However, the  dreamers and theorists who  tell us how it could be and  should be. and Ihe analysts  and commentators who tell  us how il is. disagree unanimously on one point: exactly  what, outside of their own  narrow and exclusive definition, "politics" is.  The Oxford Pocket Dictionary continues with a  second definition: "strife of  rival parlies". This is more to  the point. All parties, except  the ones where people sing,  dance, drink and throw the  refrigerator down the stairs  at three in the morning, are  political parlies, whether  they're lobbying for govern  ment defense contracts, the  "right to life", equal pay  for equal work, civil rights, or  actually campaigning for  elected office. The difference  between parties and political  parties can be measured by  their aftermaths; the hangover from thc former is something you endure the next  morning while you're trying  to figure out how to get the  fridge back upstairs; the  hangover from Ihe latter is  apt to continue for years,  decades, even for centuries.  Along with the "theory  of government" and "party  strife", the Pocket Oxford  offers yet a third definition:  "persons' opinions or side in  this", as in "What are your  politics?" The definitions  indicate the breadth of human  activities that the word  "politics" describes; from the  scribbling of sages to the  organized struggle, armed or  legislative, of special interest  groups, to thc everyday  opinions of thc man in the  street.  Politics is. above all,  people. An     individual  person's politics are irrelevant  except as they affect or reflect  those of his neighbours. The  politics of a hermit are nonexistent. Only hc is truly  apolitical, having severed his  relationship with his society.  Rebellion and revolution  against the prevailing system  of government or social  organization are obviously  political acts, as is mere  anarchism, and even apathy,  since even apathy constitutes  a tacit agreement, a silent  consent, with the status  quo. In Plato's Crilo. Socrates uses this argument to  explain why he accepts the  sentence of execution even  though he knew that the fix  was in at his trial. A citizen  of a political community is  obliged, he says, to obey Ihe  laws and judgements of that  community, even unto death,  if he fails to exercise his option  to leave.  From our beginnings as a  species, wc have been obliged  to live and work cooperatively  in order to survive. The activity wc call politics is. whether  it is intellectual, verbal, or  physical, as old as humility.  With the advent of civilizations, politics became a subject for learned treatise, a  rationale for the gratuitous  organized   mayhem   of  war.  and the daily fodder for conversation at every level of  society. Politics is the prime  activity of human beings  living in groups, since we  participate in it at every  moment, like breathing,  whether we are aware of it  or not. The derivation of the  word itself, and the "isms"  that describe its variations,  are all related to the idea of  community. Politics is derived  from the Greek "polis" ���  city. Democracy from the  Greek "demos" ��� people;  socialism, like society, from  Latin "socius" ��� comrade;  communism, like common,  communal, and community,  from Latin "communis" ���  common.  Cooperation, of course, has  its dark side; it need not be  applied toward any abstract  moral good. In unity there is  strength, in solidarity, power,  but Ihere is nothing intrinsic  in cither to indicate to what  ends strength and power arc  put. Wc have been told  that "absolute power corrupts  absolutely" and most of us  have seen incidents of even  a little power corrupting  absolutely, so if there is any  intrinsic quality in power it is  its almost inevitable tendency  to be abused. It is ironic that  social and political cooperation, motivated most often  by the need for change in  government or society to  adjust to change in the environment, once it has  achieved its immediate  ends promptly uses every  ounce of the strength and  power acquired in the struggle  to resist further change. Carl  Sagan, in his book of speculations on the e/olution of  human intelligence entitled  The Dragons of Eden, suggests light-heartedly that our  contemporary paranoia over  the abundance of political  conspiracy is a misunderstanding on our part, since  politics is and has always  been a matter of conspiracy,  plot, cabal, and influence-  peddling. In spite of appearances and often in spite of the  facts, he's wrong, since a  conspiracy is by definition  a plot with necessarily evil  intent and the vast majority  of political activity is predicated upon the best of intentions. The problems arise  because human beings are  terribly prone to believe that  the end justifies thc means...  and that is why the road to  Hell is so smoothly paved.  CBC Radio  To be continued..

Accordingly, since June 26,1975 only Canadian citizens  have had the right to vote in federal elections.  You do not need to produce proof of Canadian Citizenship either at the time of  enumeration or at the polls. However, if challenged at the polls, you may be asked  to swear that vou are a Canadian citizen before voting.  If you wish to apply for Canadian citizenship or if you have any doubts  about your status as a Canadian citizen, please contact:  The Court of Canadian Citizenship nearest you  listed under "Government of Canada" in the  white panes of your telephone directory ns  follows:  Citizenship Inquiries, or  Court of Canadian Citizenship, or  Secretary of State.

Come cryfc  with me $  By Ann Napier  Wrile Box 3 c/o Coasl News  Dear Ann:  I have a pet peeve: wc have a  nice park in Roberts Creek. My  family and many friends meet  there for supper. There art-  children everywhere. Dog owners bring their dogs to the park  and they get into the children's  food, drool and defecate all  over ��� anything but appetizing.  What arc these owners thinking  of? A park is for people, children  get worms from dogs and here  they arc unloading tons of  manure and fleas while we  look at thc view and try to eat.  Someone's dog yapping and  drooling really docs detract  from an otherwise peaceful  scene. Curdled Slomach  Dear Curdled Stomach:  f agree heartily.

IAN*  The Sea Cavalcade Fashion  Show was a fine success.  The Legion Hall in Gibsons  was packed with an appreciative audience on Thursday  evening. July 20 to find oul  what the smartly dressed  young ladies and men will  be wearing this year.  The outfits were presented  by the following clothing outlets: Helen's Fashions;  Cactus Flower; Goddard's  Fashion Centre; Jean Shop-  Fab Shop; Attic Antiques;  Sunshine Apparel; Richard's  Men's Wear; and Todd's  Children's Wear.  The seven Queen Candidates modeled the bulk of  the clothing. Adult fashions  were displayed by Mrs.  Marguerite Campbell and Mr.  Philip    W.Gordon. The  representatives      for      thc  young men were Jamie Sallis  and Joint McConnell, and in  the children's department  were Miss Mya Kankainen,  Miss Bobby-Jean Worotny,  Miss Julie Macedo and  Master Patrick Worotny.  Marion Alsager and Jennifer Thompson both deserve  credit for their organizational  work; thc evening went off  very smoothly. One is better  not listening to rumours of  occasional comical dressing  room chaos prior lo the calm  presentations on the floor.  No kind words are necessary  for John McKenzie, the  commentator: he obviously  enjoyed his labour of love and  it looked to be thanks enough.

Franz Harpain, a mathematics teacher at Vancouver  Community College, and his  wife Sanchie, a social worker,  will be accompanied by Grant  Hanson, an art teacher in  Coquitlam.  The primary function of the  lecture will be to bring people  up to date on the latest developments in the organization.  The goal of having 1% of  the population in major cities  meditating has been completed in many cities around  the world, including Vancouver. The next step from there  is to concentrate on two  provinces, Quebec and  British Columbia, in an  attempt to increase this Figure  to2'/>%.  While this increase is under  way research will bc conducted and the end result will bc  to conclusively prove that the  increase in meditators will  cause a decrease in social  negativity. This should bc  most apparent statistically  in areas such as the crime  rate, suicides, traffic accidents and such.  Through previous controlled  studies this claim appears  to be substantiated. At  Folsom, the maximum security prison in the U.S.A.,  10% of the inmates took the  TM course and began meditating. The environment  within the walls was stated  to have improved, plus,  out of thirty prisoners released, only one ended back  inside. This is a drastic  drop from the norm, which  is usually 57%.  Many major commercial  enterprises now have a  programme which pays the  cost of the TM course for  their employees; in return for  this they experience less  absenteeism and ' happier  workers. Included in this  scheme are giants like I.T.&T.  and General Motors, Hilton  Hotels,  and  Great  Western  Life Insurance.  The Gibsons lecture will  be on Wednesday, July 26  at 7:30 p.m. in the Kinsmen  Hall at Dougal Park. The  Sechelt one will be the next  evening at the same time in  the Senior Citizen's Hall.  mfU  LORO  INCUS  TO  FLOROS  AGENCIES LTD  REAL ESTATE * INSURANCE  Box 238 1S89 Marine Drive Gibsons.

Questions in the House,  for example, that arc directed  to the Premier are often taken  as notice. That means a scripted  answer    is    prepared    by    the  Coast News, July 25,1978.  Premier's staff and tabled  by the Premier in subsequetit  sittings of the Legislature. As a  member of both the 1972-75  Legislature and the 1975-to the  present one. it is my impression that a much higher percentage of questions directed at  the Premier and his cabinet are  taken as notice by the Socred  government as compared to thc  NDP. The bvword is caution.  POTTERY SALE  Saturday, August 5  ARE YOU IN FAVOUR OF B.C.HYDRO'S  PROGRAMME OF HERBICIDE  APPLICATION  TO THEIR TRANSMISSION RIGHTS-OF-WAY?

He did  this twice during the past Session. The first was during his  argument with NDP MLA Graham Lea over the tabling of  B.C.'s position in the fishing  boundaries dispute with the  Americans. Mr. Bennett's  accusations against Graham  Lea and myself. Ihat we had  betrayed a confidence, were  patently false. When this became  evident, the Premier hid in his  office and avoided the press until  thc whole event was old news.  Similarly Mr. Bennett showed  himself to bc rather shallow and  petty when he attacked Dave  Barrett for taking his wife to  official functions on government  aircraft on six occasions while  Ithe NDP were in office. Even Mr.  Bennett's caucus deserted him  on that issue.  While thc propaganda team  in thc Premier's office is by no  means in a panic, there is at  present a concentrated effort to  shore up the image of Mr. Bennett. The effort is now on to  humanize Mr. Bennett. He is  not the short-tempered, wooden  figure we have become used  to. No, he is now Ginger Rogers'  dance partner, as witness by the  check-to-cheek newspaper photograph of thc Premier and Ms  Rogers. Mr. Bennett now has a  sense of humour. Hc proved  it again in recent pictures of  himself in front of an on-coming  E & N passenger train. Such  antics! Such personality! In  actual fact, of course, Mr. Bennett is still the rather lacklustre,  unimaginative type that personifies the present Social Credit  administration.

At the  moment ils percentages read  Barrett 54, Bennett 28, with the  other two political leaders sharing  the remainder. The poll began  on the May 24 weekend and has  remained consistent. It would  seem Ihat however much Mr.  Bennett wishes to stage a new  image, the public isn't buying it.

"The Socreds have dealt a  telling blow to a large number of  qualified day care workers,"  Barnes said. "Instead of using  attrition to reduce staff over a  phase-out period, some staff arc  being offered jobs as clerks with  thc option being no job at all."  Last week Social Credit Human  Resources Minister William N.  Vandcr /aim  gave parents of  children attending thc day  centres thirty days' notice that  the government would no longer  operate thc facilities. He said  private organizations would bc  expected to take them over but  gave no information as to what  organizations would bc involved.  Barnes said nearly 200 single  parents and some two-parent  families in which both parents  work outside thc home will hc  affected.  "Now wc learn that thc employees of these centres have  been as abused as thc children  and parents." Barnes said.

The second half  of the stay, it is hoped- that  one of the many camps in  the locale will be available  for a group-living situation.  Each area involved will  have an overall theme. In  the Courtenay-Comox area  the emphasis will be on public  health; Duncan will concentrate on agriculture; Chilli-  wack co-operatives; and  The Sunshine Coast, small  business and co-operatives.  What this involves is that  the appropriate youngster  will observe and work, without  reimbursement on a loose  work schedule, suitable to  the employer, and then take  the knowledge from this experience with him/her to  the second stage of the  exchange and learn by comparison.  A good cross section of the  community life will be invaluable to them. Food stores,  fishing, booming, mill work,  museums and any type of  small business would be an  ideal work situation for this  learning process.  The funding for this comes  from the federally sponsored  parent organization, Canadian  International Development  Agency. Susan Sprowle will  be the coordinator for this  area.

Coast  Strokers  By Dennis Gray  Seeing my wing in a sling  brings many reactions from  people; like, "Ha ha, so you  finally got your's". Even the  doctor said it was a humerus  break. Few people can resist  saying something. I went into  a restaurant the other day and  they even had a sign up saying.  "You deserve a break today".  But some people don't laugh.  They just look disgusted and  suggest I grow up and think about  something more aerioua than  motorbikes.  So what's more serious than  the daily newspaper? Starting  with the comics, or the literary  pugalist's Fotheringham, and  Collins verbally punching everyone out, or Paul St.Pierre telling  the whole world about secret  parts of B.C. that should be kept  secret. Then there is the ridiculous/morbid, The Front Page;  here the contemporary sophistication of the world's greatest  men and women are an influence  and example for bafoons like me.  Such as the photo of our Prime  Minister making obscene gestures; while the exploits of his  wife would be better left unrecorded. Then there are the  U.S./Soviet nuclear talks with all  their abbreviations: SALT,  ICBM, ABM. SAM, etc. How  can you trust people who abbreviate everything? It's like talking  Pig Latin or spelling out words  in front of kids. I think they are  trying to S-N-Q-W us.

After completing the  course, Gordon Scott and Ken  Hincks were tied ' in the  lead, both with a score of  227. In a sudden death  tie breaker, the championship went to Gordon Scott.  In the first flight, low  net winners were W.Reich,  193; and Don Sleep, 205.  Low net winner in the second  flight was Andy Gray with  200; second was Bill Frazer  at 202. Alec Warner and  Harry Martin with scores of  189 and 196 respectively  were the low net winners in  the third flight.

Just push a button and everyone  is gone? Like putting the lights  out with the flip of a switch?  How would you do it if you were  one if those guys on the Front  Page and a memo came down  from Cod or somewhere: "Everyone has to go, we are tearing  this place down for a super  race parking lot". What would  you do? Give everyone FREE  BEER and hope they drink themselves to death? Most loggers  would survive that. Maybe  free B.C.Ferry coffee? Or while  we are on the subject, perhaps  they could begin unloading cars  a half-hour before the ship  docks, since half of North America comes up here each weekend-  it shouldn't take long. Grace  McCarthy could stand on the  slip grinning and throwing in  smile buttons as they splash into  the Bay. Sort of an up-to-date  Lemming migration.  Or maybe you would like to  see something more sophisticated  like thought projection. For  example, if my wife knew what  I was thinking when I see all  these sun bathers, she would  kill me. How would I do it?  Oh. I'd give everyone a moto-  cross bike (or a skateboard or  rollerskates or a shopping cart).  Soon half the population would  be joyously tearing around on  one wheel while the other half  would be falling over in front  of them.

He put up a  perfect performance and made  a beautiful landing. Sir  Richard Fairey (though he  was not titled then) towered  above me; he was well over  six feet, and was standing  beside mc, next to the Russian  buyer. I remember his  remarking on how pleased he  was at how the plane functioned, and how proud he was  of his pilot. The Russian was  a rotund little man compared  to Sir Richard. He beamed  ecstatically and decided to  buy the plane. Later, Stephen  was to deliver it to the Russian  Government in Moscow. And  quite a memorable occasion  it was in his life.  It was in 1935, the beginning of the Soviet Union's  Five Year Plan, and Stephen  was entertained royally by  the    Russian    Government.

He attended several  operas which he loved. He  had a great love of music,  and taught himself the piano.  One piece I remember in  particular was Beethoven's  Moonlight Sonata, which he  often played. ,  What struck him most  about the Russians was their  drab attire, particularly at  the opera, where the orchestra members were the best  dressed. The women looked  so drab in their style of  dress, hc thought, especially  with no make-up. The Russians themselves did not  have access to some of the  luxuries which went mostly  to the visitors. There were  special shops for thc tourists.  (Though they could hardly  be called that. Visiting  delegates would be a better  term.) I still have a shawl  Stephen brought back from  Moscow.  Of course there were privileges for the higher officials,  such as opera tickets. I think  it was four operas a year  they were entitled to. Everything was rationed, it seemed.  The poor were given trips on  the Volga River instead. Even  the clothes Stephen took into  Russia were limited, and  letters in and out of Russia  were censored.  Coast News, July 25,1978  13.

But the Russian  agent (a white Russian)  who accompanied Stephen,  was fluent in his native  tongue and knew his way  around. They were invited  Need-  to a display in Red Square,  were living in cramped  quarters as well. One couple  lie met where the man held  which was cancelled for  political reasons. They had  no idea why bul managed to  sneak onto a friend's balcony  and saw everything. Maybe  it displayed too much of the  Soviet's military strength.  Stephen said he and his  friend were suspicious of one  factory the Russians claimed  produced cars, so they put  on coveralls and sneaked in.  They found, as they suspected, not cars but aeroplanes. Hence the purchase  of thc English plane they had  just delivered. They were  obviously going to produce  more, based on the same  model. Later Stephen had to  deliver a Fairey Battle to  Fairey's factory at Gossilies  Belgium.  A sister of Bogey Hale  who was in the airforce with  Stephen, said how she had  last seen Stephen and how  she would remember him.  She was at the movies  when the news came on and  there he was in the Fairey  Battle, about to fly the English  Channel. She said it was as  though he left this life with a  wave and a smile. Those who  saw the picture remember  him that way, as the camera  caught him waving goodbye. I did not see that news  reel   myself,    unfortunately.  with only two rooms.

Port Mellon Library ���  to Read or Not to Read  By Pay Delong  The Port Mellon Public-  Library was started in 1947  during Sorg Pulp days and  was originally loeatcd near the  present Training Centre until  it was moved in 1957 to its  present location in the Port  Mellon Community Hall.  Interest ran high in the  library's first decade and with  continuing financial support  from the Port Mellon Community Association and the  Provincial Government for  the purchase of new books  and equipment, together  with Canadian Forest Products Ltd. supplying the building, complete with heat and  light through the years, the  library has grown and flourished.  By 1967, the library contained over 5.000 books, of  which 2,000 were volumes for  children. Reference books  were obtained and the library <  became an information bank  for homework and project  assignments.  Although financial support  has continued, the advent of  television, the expansion of  the recreational facilities in  the surrounding area, together with the elimination of  many of the houses in the  Port Mellon townsite. have  greatly reduced the number  of residents taking full advantage of this worthwhile facility.  In reviewing the annual  reports, several facts emerge  that appear to confirm that  the Port Mellon Library, like  many other libraries, is finding it difficult to compete  with other forms of leisure  time activities. This appears  to present us with a paradox;  with modern technology, on  the one hand, making an  ever increasing amount of  knowledge available in  written form and, on the other  hand, fewer people borrowing  fewer books from our library  bookshelves.  Book circulation statistics, although not very stimulating to read, illustrate this  waning interest in our library  very well.  Life Saving Awards  The Gibsons Swimming  Pool recently sponsored thc  Royal Life Saving Society  Bronze Medallion and Bronze  Cross Awards.  Participants followed an  eight week course every Saturday morning from 9 a.m.  to 12 noon. During these  sessions the participants  were trained in the skills of  lifesaving. first aid. search  procedures, etc. The course  was conducted by George  Bodt, Aquatic Director of  Gibsons Swimming Pool,  along with the fine assistance  of Mr. Tom Sheldon, who  gave an excellent lecture on  first aid and a pool session  on the proper use of masks,  snorkels and fins.  The examiner for both  courses was Mrs. Helen  Sorensen, who is thc appointed Royal Life Saving Society  examiner tor thc Sunshine  Coasl.  The Bronze Medallion exam  was held on July I. and the  Bronze Cross Exam on July  H. The Bronze Medallion  Award is the basic lifesaving  award for persons fourteen  years and over; the Bronze  Cross Award is the basic  qualification for a professional  lifeguard.  The following participants  earned their Bronze Medallion by passing the exam  (practical and theory):  Dawn Atlee; Clive Hall*;  Nedenc Smcthurst; Kim Almond; Lori Boyce*; Louise  Murphy;    Sylvia    Passmore;  Tony Pajak*; Gordon Cole*;  Paulette Sheldon*; Lex  Tierny*.  ���These participants held  the award previously, but  requaliftcation is necessary  every two years for the  award to be valid.  On July 8, the Bronze  Cross exam was conducted  and the following persons  were successful:  Gordon Cole; Kim Benner;  Irish Gurr; Paulette Sheldon;  Clive Hall; Lex Tierney.  New Royal Life Saving  Courses will be offered in the  fall of 1978. Please consult  your Fall and Winter Programme, available first week  of September, 1978.

These two very able volunteers are both considering  retirement this year which  presents those interested  in the local library with a  real and pressing problem ���  locating and training interested volunteers in proper  library administration.  This involves more than  "opening up the library  doors twice a week". Library  administration involves understanding and maintaining the  "Dewey Decimal" library  filing and indexing system,  purchase of new books and  retirement of old and worn  volumes plus accounting  for the community and provincial monies alloted annually. This, on top of the time  required to make the facility  available to the public two  evenings a week, will require  a volunteer genuinely interested in the community.  This article affords us an  opportunity to publicly  thank Mrs. Gladys Booth and  Mrs. Marg Gill for their  many years of unselfish service to the community of Hort  Mellon. The community can  show its appreciation by ensuring their successors the  support and interest required  to keep the Port Mellon  Public Library alive and  active.  Some residents of Seaside Village are concerned that excessive removal of  soil for landfill will leave their property sitting above the level of their neighbours' lots and require retaining walls.
