In the subsequent balloting Nicholson was elected as Chairman over Lee, garnering six of the eight directorial votes cast.  Director Lee was nominated by Gibsons representative on the  Board, Director Jack Marshall.  ly. Jo took the picture from a boat wilh a  In another new departure.  Director Lee suggested that  candidates for the chair should  show cause why they should  be so elected. This was  agreed upon. Director Lee  read a prepared statement  listing his administrative  background dating back to  1934.  In his address to the Board  the then Director Nicholson  stressed that the position of  chairman, as he saw it, should  be primarily concerned with  relationships. "There are  ihree areas of concern,"  said Nicholson. "I feel lhal if  I am elected to Ihe chair I  must work to improve the  relationships between the  Regional Board and Ihe public; I musl work to improve the  relationships between thc  Regional Board and staff:  and I must work lo improve  the inter-personal relationships between Regional Board  members.  Nicholson said that he  would insist that directors  accord each other a mutual  respect and that he would  invoke Robert's Rules of  Order toward this end.  In the other local governments last week the Seehelt  Council saw thc seating of  Alderman Joyce Kolibas for a  second term and Alderman  Larry Macdonald for his- first.  In Gibsons it was Alderman  Lorraine Goddard being seated for her second term and  Alderman Dick Fitchett taking his place for his firsl  term. The only change of  personnel at Ihe Regional  Board was the seating of  Director David Hunter replacing Bernie Mulligan  who retired.

By John Burnside  When Eileen Glassford  was in Nassau earlier this  month someone recognized  her from having seen her as  an extra in a segment of the  Beachcombers. She had that  kind of face, thai kind of impact. A year ago I was walking  with her towards Trolls in  Horseshoe Bay when a middle-aged lady fell into step  with us. She prattled away to  Eileen and when we prepared  to leave her at Ihe door of thc  restaurant she kissed Eileen  and insisted that she come to  visit her in Virginia. Eileen  had never met her before.  To travel with her, as I did  frequently to drama festivals  and such, was to become Ihe  centre of a group draw n to her  instantly by her enormous  magnetism. 1 remember an  adjudicator al a drama festival  in Vernon asking her some  years ago whai il was that she  did in lhc drama club. Eileen  jusl smiled. Some hours later  when he, an Intensely shy-  man, had been glued to her  side for hours al some reception or other he suddenly told  her that he knew what her  role in thc drama club was,  kissed her and lied in embarrassment.  What she did for the drama  club was what she had done as  a teacher for almost thirty  years on the Sunshine Coast  and what she continued to do  in her home after she retired.  Eileen Glassford was a fountain of support and understanding. In the classroom  where others saw a discipline  problem Eileen saw a troubled  child. She believed always in  the best part of us all and by  so believing brought that part  Into being. Whenever I tra-  In memory of Eileen Glassford  veiled on the ferry with her I  could be certain that some  rough logger or fisherman or  mill worker of mature years  would come up and throw his  arms around her and bc for  a few moments again a delighted little boy.  Her nickname when she  retired from Elphinstone in  1971 was "Thc Groovy  Granny" and whoever invented thc term 'generation gap'  had just never met Eileen  Glassford. For her there was  no generation gap. She knew  intuitively, as Peter Trower  has said, that we arc all just  children growing older and  she moved as easily in the  company of the young as she  did among her old and treasured friends.  She was as much ul home  among the native people in  Sechelt as she was anywhere.  Clarence Joe has said. "She  wus a true friend to our  people, Ihe young and lhc  old," and in truth hers was  a warm wholc-hcnrlcdiicss  which recognized no artificial  discriminatory barriers between people. She did not  preach her vieyvs, she lived  them and let the living action  speak.  Il is just and accurate to  say that she was a great  woman. She never forgol thai  every child born is anxious to  please; that people sometimes  do things they shouldn't  despite themselves not  because they want to be evil  and her steadfast faith In  people never wavered,  Lester Peterson's first  memory of Eileen Glassford  yvas many years ago when she  was slill a fairly young  woman. She and Harry Curled were doing Olympic-type  diving off the wharf in Gibsons  and we are reminded that she-  was both a runner and a  swimmer of international calibre in her youth as well as  a player of basketball, field  hockey and lacrosse. She also  Comers was a model for whai  houses should be. Years ago  I tried to tell her how much I  appreciated it, whnl it meant  to me, what an oasis of security and warmth I found it,  She smiled and said, "It's  a house that's seen a lot of  love, John." And so il had  and so it did in my time.  her support and encouragement eased us through many  a rough place, later when  Ian Corrance and Manually  and I undertook to lake ovi i  the ailing Coasl News she was  a pillar of strength and oni  of our I'nnilcsi traditions  was Granny's Dinner which  she prepared and fed to tin  entire staff on lhc long production Sundays Again sin  was proud and'happy when ui  did well and to make Eileen  behind me. "Thai was mix  John's favourite snug." she  said. And then she said wilh a  note of wonder, "That's the  first time I've been able lo  say his name since he died."  And then she began to speak  of John Glassford. marvellous  long stories of lining reminiscence. And so she gave me  Ihat. too. At a time in my  life when bitterness or cynicism mighl have developed  she gave me her testimony  that a deep and enduring line  between man and woman was  a  reality   and  ihat   hope  was  justified,  Eileen came first lo llus  lovely coasl in 1912 as a sum  mcr complaint to lhc summer  cabin lhal was lo be her lasl  home.

It is an example of the selflessness  and thc dedication to the common good of  ordinary men and women which must  give pause to all those who have depraca-  ting things to say about what they term  human nature. It has been said here before and cannot be said too often; we are  all of us indebted to these men and women for thc service they render.  Secondly, let's do our besl lo help  ihem. Winter time is the time of overheated stoves and the worst weather  seems to bring with it a rash of fires.  The lire lasl week should be a reminder lo  all of us to take every care wc can (o ensure thai wc avoid the dreadful devastation thai fire can cause so terribly quickly.  And, finally, wc are struck wilh an  obvious inequity in the distribution of  public funds. Much, much more is lost in  property value every year to fire than is  lost to criminal activity, yet we spend  hundreds of thousands of dollars to equip  and maintain police forces while relying  on volunteers to protect us from the  greater menace. Can anvone explain  this?  Victoria shuffle  ; We are in receipt of the official government press release from Victoria explaining the recent cabinet shuffle and  ipust confess that wc find it both uninspiring and unconvincing. The plain truth  iS that the Socred government is talent  tjlin and there is little behind thc front  bench that Bennett can turn to for cabinet  ��� material when he regroups his forces.  ; What he has done in this exercise is to  ��� ejideavour to consolidate his control  oj the reins of power by moving prominent ministers into unfamiliar portfolios lest they become too well-known or  successful in present portfolios. Parties  ��tf the extreme right such as the B.C.  Socreds are essentially undemocratic  id structure which is why they tend to  ���'��� (lass their leadership along like so much  inherited wealth, witness Caoucttc the  Younger in Quebec Creditiste circles and  Bennett the Younger locally. They believe in the centralization of power,  first into the hands of thc central government then into thc hands of thc strong  premier.  Mind you, one cannot really blame  Bennett. If we headed a movement yvhieh  encompassed the ambitious Mr. Vandcr  Zalm wc would be looking carefully over  our shoulders too. And speaking of Vandcr Zalm, it can be hardly considered  good news that hc has been appointed lo  thc Department of Municipal Affairs.  Already he is on record as saying thai he  thinks there is too much local government. For what it's worth it is our serious  contention that in the past three years  there has been all too much Vander  Zalm in government. The man epitomizes  the Socred urge to centralize power in  as few hands as possible and unfortunately the area of Municipal Affairs  gives him an ample target for his hatchet  work.  Finally, people get the government  they deserve and if more of the arrogance  of McGeer and Vander Zalm and more of  the portion of taxes such as school taxes  being shifted onto the backs of loeal property owners is what the people of B.C.  want then one supposes they shall have to  have them.  Regional Chairman  : The choice of Ed Nicholson us the Reft-, gional Board Chairman looks like it might  he the right one. The degree of animosity  between ex-Chairman Harry Almond and  iti, aspirant Charles Lee was in danger of  I* becoming extreme enough to affect the  smooth working of thc Regional Board if  either man had been chosen us Chairman. Ed Nicholson may bc thc righl man  to take some of the heat out of thc exchanges at thc Regional Board and may  be the man to help ensure that the activities of the directors remain co-operative  and constructive. The Coast News wishes  him well in his new task.  He has already evinced some solid  statesman-like qualities in naming his  defeated rival to thc position of Vice-  Chairman as well as asking him to head  up the prestigious and important Finance  Committee. It is apparent that a man of  Director Lee's background and experience has much to offer and it is to Chairman Nicholson's credit that he immediately moved to ensure that Director  Lee has challenging scope for his abilities  and concerns.  All in all, this is a solid branch of local  government at the present time and thc  coming year should see good work done.  .from the files of Coast News  5 YEARS AGO  Officials of the provincial Ministry of Lands, Forests, and Water  Resources acknowledge that flagrant  violations in the Chapman Creek area  pose an imminent danger to the  Elphinstone watersheds.

L.h K-idsm.  Musings  John Burnside  The publication date of this  newspaper coincides with my  mother's birthday and I have  little doubt that the person  most surprised that I should  be aware of that fact is my  mother. I am, I'm ashamed to  confess, one of that band of  prodigals yvho has never in his  life remembered to send my  mother a birthday card. Why  is it that mothers arc so little  appreciated? Oh, I am aware  that few could match my  record of thoughtlessness  but nonetheless I think that we  take the selfless devotion that  gives us birth and keeps us  alive when we are helpless  too much for granted.  I myself was a difficult  little beast from the very  beginning. Firsl, I made my  appearance after my brother  was fifteen years old and my  sisler almost twelve and my  mother might have been forgiven for believing that her  time of child bearing was  over. Then, true to ensuing  form, I was late in arriving  and poor mother, struggling  with the workload of a coal-  miner's wife in Ihe days when  washday wus a scrubboard  and a stone outside boiler,  was forced lo bear thc burden  of the recalcitrant young Burnside throughout an exceptionally hot summer until hc  finally made an appearance in  late August.  Nor were troubles al an  end after the birth, Thc belated third child was a sickly,  disaster-prone infant who  howled and screamed through  most of his first year until a  painful hernia was finally  diagnosed and treated and Ihe  disposition improved. Then in  the cold dump stone houses  she had a yearly battle to  keep her youngest son alive  as pleurisy and pneumonia  saw    him    hospitalized    for  one long stretch and death  seemed ever possible.  The school days were  marked largely by every variety of illness known to man and  I was spoon-fed cod liver oil  several times a day in an effort to improve thc constitution. During thc war years  this meant that thc entire  family candy ration had to bc  confiscated and fed to the  puny little wretch in order to  get him to take his medicine.  Oh, I was spoiled!  1 raised incredulous gasps  in the Coast News office  recently when I casually  mentioned that as a child I  ate virtually a chocolate cake  a day, baked largely for my  consumption. Then there wus  the homemade toffee with  which I removed each of my  baby teeth in turn when Ihev  became loose. A much more  agreeable procedure lhan  tying strings to doors and  slamming them which apparently was thc fate of  several of my contemporaries.  This degree of care and  attention was accomplished  despite the fact that after my  father had been cruelly in-  Slings & Arrows fc^  George Matthews  m  my due largely unappreciutive  of the care und effort expended for my well-being by a  woman whose life yvas incessant toil.  It is common-place after  the formative years and the  rebellious years of adolescence are over, for young  people to discover to their  great surprise that their  parents were much smarter  than they had thought.  Ian Corrance said on his return from Scotland after an  absence of ten years that his  parents had learnt a lot in his  absence, and so I discovered  in 1976 al the age of almost  forty when I spent six weeks  in Scotland. My mother, I  discovered, was a woman of  considerable wit and Intelligence, I had never noticed  that before.  In many respects I found  her unchanged. She still <  starts working early in thef  morning and keeps busy all  day long until she fulls asleep  in bed over her favourite  magazine. She is hale and  hearty, or at least she doesn  Although I've always  recognized that what has come  to be called the Holocaust was  a horrendous event, I was loo  young in 1948 to feel or  accept the guilt that western  society was supposed to feel  at the fate of the Jews. As  a result, thc connection  between the Nazi death camps  and lhc creation of thc state  of Israel has never made  complete sense lo mc. In  fact it made about as much  sense as returning Italy to  the Etruscans or the Normans  giving England back to thc  Saxons or the Saxons giving it  back to the Angles or the Angles giving it back to Celts or  Picts. While it occasionally  occurs to mc that wc should  give Canada back to the Indians, thc idea generally is  fairly outlandish.  In 1948, thc United Nations  decided to take a great chunk  of thc ancient land of thc  Palestinians and give it to a  multitude of Jewish refugess,  few of whom could ever have  traced their heritage to  ancient Israel. The more  fanatical of the Zionists who  promoted thc state of Israel  contended that modern Israel should approximate  thc territory of ancient Israel  which spread from the Nile  to the Euphrates. Since 1948  the state of Israel has grown,  at thc expense of her Arab  neighbours, towards fulfillment of those territorial  imperatives.  Since 1948, thc myth has  been perpetrated that Arabs  hated Jews and that in fact  thc hatred was so irrational  that Arab newspapers refused to recognize or even  mention Ihe state of Israel.  That myth was partially pul  to rest one year ago when  Anwar Sadal travelled to  Israel in search of a peaceful settlement of thc conflict. Since that time it has  been Israeli intransigence  yvhieh has kept the parties  from reaching a settlement.  An editorial from thc English  language Egyptian Gazette, of  November 19, tells the Arab  version of thc dispute, in  recalling Sadal's visit:  Thc Problem  Exactly a year ago today  President Sadat made his trip  to Israel that caught thc imagination of thc world. Many  outside thc Middle East  confidently predicted a rapid  conclusion of peace. Today,  however, thc peace negotiations arc still continuing and  thc prognosis is not exactly  bright. Why?  Thc reasons for foreign  optimism last November arc  closely bound up witli thc  foreign misunderstanding  of thc nature of thc Middle-  East conflict that has helped  feed the fires of that conflict  for every thirty years. Aftci  World War II aiding Israel  was seen as a do-good-  lo-thc-Jcws effort in a West  overwhelmed by conscience  after thc revelations of  Hitlerite enormities. Arab  resistance to the establishment of Israel were inter-,  prcted in Western terms as  "anti-semitie bigotry".  Few seemed to realize that  aiding Israel was not synonymous with "doing good to Ihe  Jews" and was doing harm to  thc Arabs. Almost nobody  in the West seemed to understand that thc Zionist programme for Palestine was  very much akin to 19th  century plans for white settlement in Africa. Rather  worse, indeed, since 20th  century Palestine was already an over-crowded little  country and thc Zionists were  scheming Ihe displacement of  thc native inhabitants in order  to make room for Jeyvish  settlers. Almost nobody took  into consideration thc fact thai  the Arabs were Semites them  selves; that hundreds ol  thousands of Jews had beer  living peacefully in Ihe Arab  yvorld since the tmc of Ihe  Inquisition: and that the Muslim culture of thc Arab homeland recognized Jews and  Christians together with  Muslims as being of thc family of "the People of thc  Scriptures".  When the deed was done  and Israel was established,  few paid heed to the Arab  calls for peace: after thc  armistice of 1949, peace based  on the UN resolution that  urged Israel to allow thc  repatriation of the refugees  it had created; after 1967,  peace based on UN resolution  242. And who took notice of  the Palestinian call for a  secular Palestine in which  Jews, Christians and Muslims could live as equals  under the law regardless of  religious faith?  The myth of Arab bigotry  persisted. It took President  Sadat's courageous initiative  of last November 19 to shake  what in psychology would  probably be termed a projection of thc West's own  complexes on lo the Arabs.  Everybody has had a new look  at thc issue. But the conflict  persists after a whole year of  peace talks. And the high  hopes are not so high. What  then is thc problem? What it  has always been: a clash  between Israeli settlers  and Arab natives over ownership of the land of Palestine; a  clash between colonialism and  thc UN Charter principles that  forbid the forceful acquisition  of land and support the right  of all peoples to self-determination.  The hitherto "homeless"  Israelis arc bent on denying  the Palestinians a home of  their own in Arab East Jerusalem, the Wesl Bunk and till  Gaza Strip which comprises  the lust one-fifth of Palestine  left to its inhabitants after  the 1948 alienation of mosl of  their country.

MM Letters to the Editor  Sense off humour necessary  Coast News, December 12. 1976  Editor:  May I offer a sour note  concerning the recent waste  disposal forum al Elphinstone. Oul of all lhc talk and  all of the exhibits, I detected  only one useful, "down-to-  earth" conclusion: "The more  often you collect garbage, the  more garbage you will have to  colled".  A forum of Ihis type seems  lo appeal to four quite different kinds ol people:  1. The politicians who bring  a political message.  2. The ubiquitous "concerned citizens" wiih an  OXC lo grind.  3. Ihe true conservation-  isis, the one-tenth of one  percent of our population who  are knowledgeable and concerned aboul our environment  and who practise conservation in their own lives.  4. Mr. Gibb! It is with Mr.  Gibb that my sympathy lies,  because after the political  messages have been delivered, the axes ground, and  we've heard descriptions of  how to make sandals oul of old  lires, it is Mr. Gibb who must  continue to cope with the increasing mound of garbage  from the public. It's a public  which doesn't care how much  garbage ii produces, doesn't  want lo pay for its disposal  and will turn instantly into  snarly, ill-informed "concerned citizens" if a new  dump or Incinerator is planned  within Iheir sight or smell.  My advice to lhc politicians  is lo slay, away  from   these  Forum work applauded  Editor:  .lust il note of appreciation  for the thorough and painstaking work Elphinstone students and Marta McKovvu  applied lo their recycling symposium.  Though the turn-out was  less than might have been  expected or hoped for, I'm  sure many interesting ideas  were seeded among those who  did attend.  Twenty years past il would  have been hard to get an  audience at all Oil the subject of garbage.

Hut I  continued lo buy Kerouac's  bonks as they appeared,  perhaps looking for some sort  of answer. None was forthcoming.  After lhc publication of  thc Dharma Bums, Kerouac  began lo run into more publishing-difficulties, Tho bonks  he had written during Ins  years of exile, were slill considered loo far oul of the mainstream. Kerouai had submitted to stringent editing  in gel (hi I he Road into print  and had written I he Dharma  Hums in u fairly conventional  style more or less to order for  Viking. All his remaining  manuscripts however, were  ,'ouched in tin' free-form,  "spontaneous prose" style of  I Ir Subterraneans and hc was  loath I" change them, Viking  uas equally loath tu publish  anv oi ihe buoks as Ihcy  stood, li was the end of  Kerouac's association with his  publisher.  Grove Press, who had published The Subterraneans, is  an avanl garde house and  willing lo lake a gamble on  experimental writing. They  snapped up several of thc  titles that Viking had rejected.  Over thc long haul. Grove was  to release more of Kerouac's  books under ils imprint, than  any oilier publisher. In 1959  alone, thev released two titles,  Doctor Sum and Mexico City  Blues. Sax is perhaps Kerouac's strangest novel. It is  essentially a childhood fantasy, set in a surreal Lowell  and built around the author's  childhood obsession with The  Shadow. lhal enigmatic  crime-fighter of radio shows  and pulp-magazines, 1 musl  confess that I have never been  able to gel loo excited about  this odd work although il has  received high praise from  some critics.  Mexico City Blues is a collection of 242 poems, arranged  Pages  from a Life-Log  Peter Trower ���  as ja//-ehoruses. As a poet.  Kerouac leaves a lol lo be  desired. There are some effective sections hut much of  the book is given over lo obscure, private writings lhal  verge on the incomprehensible. It is interesting as part  of Kerouac's overall output  however, since it draws from  the same experimental  sources as prose.  I1)?1) saw the publication of  a third book. Maggie Cassidy,  in  a  cheap   Avon   paperback  edition, Ibis relatively minor  work is also set in Lowell  during Kerouac's curly adolescence and thc treatment is  realistic as opposed to Doctor  Sax. Il deals with the writer's  love lor thc girl of the title  and contains (like all Kerouac's massive and uneven  output) some passages of fine  writing.  Another onslaught of  Kerouackia hit thc bookstores  in 1960. A second minor novel,  Tristcssu. was released in  paperback from Avon. Set in  Mexico, it is a sordid laic of  the author's brief and largely-  unrequited love for a drug-  addicted prostitute. From thc  obscure Totem Press came the  equally obscure Scripture Of  The Golden Eternity, a long  sutra, dedicated to poet  Gary Snyder. Laurence Fcr-  linghctti's City Lights Books  presented Book Of Dreams, a  curious and fascinating  collection of thc writer's  actual night visions, through  which many of lhc key figures  familiar from thc novels, move  iu often strangely-altered  guise. New Directions published in a limited edition,  selections from Visions Of  Cody, Kerouac's second and  much more impressionistic  consideration of Neal Cassidy  (here called Cody Pumcray).  A fifth book of collected essays  and prose poems culled Lonesome   Traveller   was   issued  by McGraw-Hill. This contains  lhc complete text of October in  the Railroad Earth and Kerouac's meditation on the  American hobo among other  interesting pieces. It is one of  mv personal favourites among  his many works.  Keioiiae-mania was beginning lo level off however and  many of these latter works  received verv negative reviews. 1901 saw only one book  appear, u selection of stills  from the underground film  Pull Mv Daisy, featuring Allen  Ginsberg and other Beat  luminaries with spontaneous  narration by Kerouac. I have  never hud thc opportunity to  sec this short film bul it is reportedly quite impressive.  Hollywood, wilh one exception, has ignored thc Kerouac  novels as a source of movie  material. (When On The Road  w as at its height of popularity,  there was talk of a film  version with Marlon Brando as  Dean Moriarty but nothing  ever came of this.) The Sub-  lerruncuns however, was  filmed by M.G.M. in 1959  wilh generally disastrous  results. George Peppard  played thc Kerouac-figure  quite convincingly but studio-  heads turned thumbs down on  thc inter-racial love-affair.  The Mardou character was  changed to a French girl  played by Leslie Caron. This  effectively blunted much of  the book's point. A totally  unrealistic happy-ending was  also tacked on. The film was a  fiasco on several levels and  bombed badly at the box-  office.  Kerouac's literary star  seemed to bc already sliding  into decline but the forces  his books had set in motion,  continued lo gain momentum.  Dropping-out was becoming  the "in" thing lo do and half  the country's youth seemed to  bc packing rucksacks and hit  ting the road. Kerouac himself was beseiged by hordes  of eager kids, anxious to meet  their hero. Vaguely flattered,  he went along with it for  awhile but hc was slipping  further into alcoholism. Thc  whole situation was rapidly  getting out of control.  In 1961 after four years of  rampant notoriety and suicidal  drinking-bouts, Kerouac finally reached the end of his  tether. In what was to be his  last pilgrimmagc to thc  West Coast, hc hit San Francisco, ostensibly to discuss the  publication of one of his few  remaining unpublished manuscripts with Laurence Fcrlin-  ghctti and visit other old  friends. Thc trip was an unqualified disaster. Ferlin-  ghctti had offered to lend his  Big Sur cabin to Kerouac as a  retreat but it became instead a  psychological killing-ground.  Hallucinating from weeks of  cheap Tokay wine, the distraught writer experienced  terrifying death visions and  saw for thc first time, the utter  bleak truth of his plight.  The breakdown was of brief  duration but it affected Kerouac profoundly. For almost a  year afterwards, he attempted  to moderate a life-style that  had become a headlong  plunge into self-destruction.  At the end of this period he  had distilled the awful moments of understanding that  had overcome him at Big  Sur and hc poured them out in  a novel of the same title. It  was to be his grimmest and  most self-revelatory book.  Big Sur with its blunt honesty,  garnered Kerouac his first  really positive reviews in  several years and gave a  brief shot in the arm to his  sagging reputation. (It is in  the introduction to the novel,  that thc author first expresses  the desire to see all his interconnected works published in  a uniform edition under the  collective title The Dulouoz  Legend with the real names of  thc characters restored. This  is still an unrealized dream.)  The resurgence of interest  Twilight Theatre  in 1944 Elizabeth Taylor,  then a lovely twelve year-old  came to public prominence in  a story about lhc Grand National Steeplechase culled  National Velvet.

The following  year, Visions of Gerard, his  dreamlike tribute to his long-  dead brother, was published  but the critics were less than  enthusiastic. The book is  obviously deeply-felt and contains, as always, passages of  beautiful writing but it is also  heavily laced with Catholic  dogma and reads in part,  like a quirky religious tract.  It did not do well. Two years  elapsed before Desolation  Angels, a novel hc had begun  in 1956 and finished in 1961,  finally saw the light of day.  There was a good deal of initial optimism about this book  which was concerned largely  with the period of his life just  prior to the publication of  On The Road and promised a  return to thc power and scope  of that watershed work.  Desolation Angels is certainly  not lacking in scope. It ranges  from the Pacific Northwest  through San Francisco, Mexico, New York, overseas to  Tangiers, France, London and  back to America. All the familiar characters: Burroughs,  Ginsberg, Corso, etc. arc present and there are many  traces of the old fire. But the  book is extremely episodic und  hus no real central theme to  hold it together. Despite its  lack of cohesion, however,  Angels is a vital link in thc  total Legend and hus enough  going for it, to rank among  Kerouac's more-important  novels.  By thc year this book  appeared (1965) Kerouac's  personal life was once more  spiralling towards disaster.  Although hc had twice married for brief periods und hud  lived flectingly with a number  of women, his chief allegiance  had always been to his mother. It was invariably to her  that he turned when relationships dissolved and the world  closed in on him. At Jack's  insistence, they returned to  Lowell to live. Here hc drank  with boyhood pals or alone  and began his last major  novel. Kerouac had always  espoused "Americanism"  and he now drifted into a  crabbed conservatism Ihat  seemed lo utterly deny thc  free spirit of On Thc Road.  Imprisoned by his growing  paranoia, hc began to shun  Ginsberg und his other old  New York friends.

December 12, 1978  Book Review  War's grim echoes  By John Moore  We've passed the sixtieth  anniversary of the armistice in  the "War to end all wars"  and, as we prepare to celebrate the one-thousand nine-  hundred- and-scventy-eighth  birthday of thc Prince of  Peace, we might reasonably  expect to hear, among the  jingle-bells and Ihe jingles  that sell, the faint but encouraging sound of swords being  beaten into plowshares. Instead the reward for turning  up one's hearing-aid is the  sound of Begin and Sadat,  having collected the Nobel  Peace Prize for two hugs and a  handshake, squabbling like  merchants in the bazaar over  the details. Next door, the  Syrian "peace-keeping"  force is shooting anything  that moves in order to keep  thc Lebanese from killing  each other.  Meanwhile, the Vietnamese  having rid themselves of thc  French, then the Americans,  have now quarrelled with  their erstwhile allies thc Chinese, so they're lobbying for  assistance from Moscow and  fighting a nasty little war with  Cambodia, just to keep in  practice. Aggravated by this  situation, the Russian-Chinese border feud is escalating.  Russian troops arc massed  on thc frontier and since the  opposing Chinese army is  ill-equipped certain Japanese  businessmen arc going back  into the armaments racket to  make a fast buck peddling  better guns to Peking.  They're not supposed to, under the terms of World  War II surrender, but then  they're not supposed to have a  standing army cither. They  got around that one by raising  a "civil defense" militia that  is larger and better equipped  than the armies of many  small nations. (Hitler used  this same dodge to get around  the Treaty of Versailles by  creating thc Labour Corps���  "Present shovels! Ready.  Aim...Dig?).  The continents of South  America and Africa have been  divided up into states that  are, for the most part, the  stomping grounds of local  warlords, with the exception  of South Africa, crouching  behind its barb-wire and waiting for the inevitable black  explosion, while other nations  criticize it with righteous  indignation in public and  make fortunes selling it embargoed arms on the sly.  In spite of thc fact that, since  the advent of nuclear weapons, war is a luxury we can  no longer afford, the score  still seems to be Swords ten-  Plowshares zip.  So many fine books have  been written exposing the cold  political reality behind the  "noble cause", the nauseating profits of the international  arms industry, and the grim,  ghastly folly of war that I  hesitate to recommend another, but in 1962 William  Morrow and Company published a small book called  Last Letters From Stalingrad  that ought to be required  reading for anyone who contemplates the subject with  casual apathy, let alone  enthusiasm.  In 1943 the insanity of  Hitler's decision to attack  Russia was apparent to every  German soldier on the Eastern  Front. They were being beaten, mercilessly, not only by  the Russians but by the same  fierce Russian winter, more  terrible than any army, that  had devoured Napoleon's  Grand Armee more than a  century before. The Sixth  Army had been stopped cold  by the Russians at Stalingrad, yet Hitler obstinately  refused to allow them to  withdraw. In no time thc  270,000 men were surrounded. Too largr a host to be  supplied by air, Ihcy were low  on food, ammunition, and  medical supplies. When their  commander General von Paul-  us radioed for permission to  surrender. Hitler replied by  promoting him lo Field Marshal and reminding him thai  no German Field Marshal  had ever surrendered.  Before the grim tragedy  of Stalingrad entered its final  act, thc soldiers were told  Ihat one last mail-plane would  leave thc shattered airstrip.  They were given ten hours to  compose the last letter they  would ever write. Translated  by Franz Schneider and  Charles Gullans, these selected letters, written by men  who knew that but for the  grisly formalities they were  already dead, constitute the  most moving testimonial  to the futility and idiocy of  war I've ever encountered.  The letters vary in tone from  desperate resolve and wry  gallows-humour to bitterness and rage against the  government that betrayed  them. There are letters  from dedicated Nazis, pathetically losing their fanatical  faith as thc ring of darkness  closes around them, from soldiers who have lost faith in  their officers, from men painfully struggling in their last  hours to find God. In one letter  a talented pianist tries to explain to his wife that hc has  lost most of his fingers to  frostbite; only at the very end  can he bring himself to tell  her that playing the piano is  only one of a great many  things he will never do again.  Most of the letters are to  wives or sweethearts; a few to  fathers, asking them to break  the news gently to mother, but  reading any of them is a profoundly disturbing experience. Their rage and grief is  all the more poignant for the  fact that these were not green  recruits, recoiling from their  first glimpse of the horrors of  war, but mostly seasoned  veterans who had, being familiar with victory, inflicted  the same horrors on millions  of other human beings like  themselves. Thc Germans at  Stalingrad were nol heroes;  they were invaders, would-be  conquerors, yet these Idlers,  stripped of names and addresses, mighl have been written  by the defenders of Thermopylae, Musudu or thc Alamo.  In the introduction, Brig.  Gen. S.L.A. Marshall says,  "Rare revelation, these letters  bare for us lhc soul of thc combat soldier in his worst hour.  Amid the encompassing blackness, there is also a tenderness hardly less than sublime.  Thc writers were Germans,  in that hour our enemies. But  who may read and nol weep  for them?"  Thc history of the last  letters from Stalingrad is  interesting in itself. They  never reached thc loved ones  who waited for them. They  were confiscated by the Nazi  government, opened, read,  and analyzed for evidence of  troop morale with a view to  their being used for propaganda. When Ihe results were all  in, however, the evidence was  so damning that Propaganda  Minister Goebbels described  them as "untragbar" ��� unbearable. Their publication  was suppressed and they were  discovered by the allies in thc  captured Potsdam archives  and later published in Germany in 1953.  In the study of history our  attention is too often focused  on the makers and shakers,  the statesmen and politicians;  the resl of us, no matter how  you slice it, are just so much  cannon-fodder. In Last Letters From Stalingrad thc cannon-fodder speaks out with its  own voice, not to make a pretty speech of thanks for some  beribboned piece of brass,  but to condemn anyone who  would dress a man in uniform, hand him a gun, and bid  him legally murder others  like himself.

New driver for Mini-Bus  The Mini-Bus service was  faced with a serious problem  recently. The driver of the bus  left thc area, und thc bus  dispatcher, Betty Crosby, took  another job within the Sunshine Coast Community Resource Society.  Thc Society hus been fortunate to be able to find two  qualified people to continue  thc Mini-Bus service. Thc  new dispatcher. Norma Clark,  will bc starting her job soon,  and the new driver. Kathie  Tuppcrt, is already on thc  job. Mrs. Tuppcrt had previously worked as lhc Mini-  Bus relief driver und she is  pleased thai she can now perform thc duties on a regular  basis. Already some of her  passengers have expressed  their pleasure with thc Society's choice.  Thc Mini-Bus service is  funded by thc Department of  Human Resources and was  established to provide transportation to the residents* of  thc area who have no other  means of transportation. Thc  service is extended to individuals who have medical or  related appointments, people  involved with thc home-  makers program, certain volunteers, and various other  necessary services.  Thc bus service is administered by a committee headed  by Art MePhee. Part of the  committee's job is to maintain  a list of priorities for thc use of  the bus service. These priorities have been approved by  the Ministry of Human Resources as a basis for their  funding, Mr. MePhee is  happy with Ihe operation of  thc service, but hc would like  lo see the service expanded.  Currently thc Mini-Bus  service is funded only for the  uses shown on the list of priorities, and for operation during regular working hours.  This means that thc people in  this area who do not have  transportation, and who cannot afford thc cosl of a taxi,  have no way of participating in  activities, day or night. For  example, many people now-  residing in thc long-term care  unit at St. Mary's Hospital  are limited if they would like  lo join in any civic or social  activities. This problem mighl  be solved if additional funding  could be obtained to provide  for a part time driver and perhaps another vehicle. Money  lo supplement Ihe existing  service would have lo be obtained from another government department and locul'y  subscribed    funds. Mr.  MePhee is hopeful that a solution can bc found so that our  house-bound, institution-  bound citizens can lead more  normal lives.  For Mrs. Tuppert's part,  she recognizes the need lor  a transportation service. She  goes one step further and adds  a little cxtru to this service.

"'n contrast to most other  countries of the northern  hemisphere where wolf  populations have been exterminated or reduced to small  remnants, Canada still has  wolves in 90% of its area.  Biologists now recognize  that wolves play an important  role in the functioning of  healthy wild ecological systems. However, thc wolf is  still considered an undesirable  competitor by some who see  it as a threat to livestock and  desired game species. With  thc increase in thc human  population in Canada, competition between people and  wolves constitutes a growing  problem. What policies should  guide the management of  wolves so that they can continue to fulfill their role in  nature in the face of growing  pressures to utilize their natural habitat and compete with  them for their prey? This  question has become an urgent one in B.C, because of  complaints of wolf predation  on livestock and a concern  that wolves may be responsible for an evident decline in  caribou numbers have apparently led the Government  to consider wolf control in  northern regions."  The panel was chaired  very ably by Dr. Ian Mc-  Taggart Cowan of U.B.C.  and was composed of Dr.  Ludwig Carbyn of the Canadian Wildlife Service who has  done extensive studies of  wolves in Jasper and Wood  Buffalo National Parks,  Dr. David Mech of the U.S.  Fish and Wildlife Service,  internationally renowned wolf  specialist and Mr. Don  Robinson of the B.C. Fish  and Wildlife Branch.  The discussion started with  both Dr. Carbyn and Dr.  Mech telling us that in spite  of all the research that has  taken place over the past few  years on wolves, there is still  nol enough known about them  to make any decision either  for or against exterminating  or controlling Ihe wolf population. Dr. Carbyn did ^ay that  frontier farmers were entitled  to have some protection from  wolves but that that did not  mean total extermination was  necessary or even desirable.  The range of the research  that these two men have done  covers a very wide field and  when you are made aware of  some of the variables that can  effect the wolf and prey animals alike, it is no wonder that  no hard and fast decisions  have been made.  Despite the fact that wolves  are very social type animals,  in other words they stay  together and have recognized  hierarchical levels and in fact  arc right at the top of the  pyramid in predatory animals,  having few or no enemies,  Ihcy do sometimes travel  great distances to establish  new territories. They have  been known to travel up to  400 miles and then having  met up with a compatible  female, they have set up a new  pack with perhaps as many  as nine in the following year.  Electronic devices have  been attached to wolves  to trace their wanderings,  they have been studied both  in captivity and in their  natural surrounding and quite  a lot is known about their  diet through study of their  skat. It is known for instance  that they consume a large  quantity of water fowl and  muskrats and eat about an  average of five to eight pounds  of meat per day. The wolves  living in the National Parks  have lots of prey to feed on  and do not need to go outside  to hunt. Riding Mountain  National Park in northern  Manitoba is bordered by farm  lands right up to boundary of  thc park but there have only-  been two recorded cases of  wolves killing livestock.  This is not to say they do not  kill livestock but as there is  lots for them to eat within the  park boundaries, they don't  have to go outside and if they  do, the chances are they will  never return because they arc  more than likely shot by hunters or farmers.  To bc continued  Concern has been expressed over the condition of the Jackson Bros. Logging rtoaii  above Porpoise Bay.

Finally giving up in  disgust, he dumped it into the  chuck with a fine flow of invective. Even Bruno couldn't  come in on cue for laughing.  The amusing little scene  was repeated several times,  bul the admiration fur an  actor's ��� skill in imparting  meaning lo words didn't  diminish.  If you listen carefully when  watching thc Beachcombers  this Sunday at 7 p.m., you'll  find Ihat whai sounds like  genuine profanity is really.

I asked  director Rene Bonnierc as he  tried it out in french!  If you live in Courtenay  you need not ask that question. Sid Williams has been  the embodiment of the Muse  of Entertainment both tragic  and comic in that city for  fifty years. And in fact his  name should bc familiar lo the  rest of Ihe province as hc was  Century Sam in 1967 and also  thai year and again in 1970-71  hc toured with the Barker-  ville Show, which if I remember correctly, gave a performance at Elphinstone.  Sid was a founding member  in 1930 of thc Comox Vallev  Drama Group which after the  war became Courtenay Little  Theatre, a group which regularly won awards at thc annual B.C. Drama Festival. But  it all started buck in 1921 when  Sid was in Grade Seven and  volunteered to play St. Nicholas for thc primary grades and  then began more serious  acting with the Junior High  School Drama Club.  In those days when travel  to Vancouver or Victoria from  up-Island was difficult and  time-consuming amateur  theatricals were popular and  ambitious productions ��� even  going "on lour" to sueh  remote places us Denman and  Hornby Islands.  For thc young Sid Williams  who worked in thc retail shoe  business, thc theatre was an  exciting and rewarding hobby  tu which he must have devoted much time and enthusiasm, A man of many talents,  he could sing as well as act.  design stage sets, costumes,  props, was on occasion stage  manager   and   director,   anil  won awards in all categories.  He also found time to pain! in  oils, serve as a volunteer  fireman and youth director  and when possible go off into  thc mountains prospecting.  After thc war. during which  he entertained the troops,  he was elected to the Board  of School Trustees on which lie  served for lour years followed  by twenty-three on City Council. An actor who is at home in  classical roles he nevertheless loves best to clown, has  been for many years the star  of loeal parades, conventions,  parlies, etc., and during his  years on Council enlivened I hi  last meeting of each year bv  playing Santa anil distributing  /any   but   appropriate   gills.  Now at seventy he's beginning a new career as a film  actor, playing a fugitive from  an old folk's home, one Tom  Hawkins, wiih ihe Beachcombers' crew,  Ihe script of The Last of  the Handlincrs was written  by Arthur and Win Maysc.  Arthur was for many years a  contributor to the Saturday  livening I'ost and for ten  a columnist with thc Victoria  limes. When their children  were grown, the Mayses  moved to Campbell River to  begin a new career us freelance writers. They have written regularly for thc Beachcombers.

Native Environmental Studies  Deserted Bay report  Hv Ulan J.Crane  I asl week's article in the  scries on Native Environmental Studies commented on  bad logging practices and the  spoliation nl lhc salmon run in  Descried River. Il attributed  thc spoliation to the Gustav-  siin Logging operation. In  Fact, there were several  logging operations subsequent in the Gustavson one,  and il was these rather than  iusi.iv sun's which were  responsible for thai damage.  the Coasl News wishes to  apologize lor this emir.  Tcacher-in-charge Ron  Fearn is responsible for all  aspects of the on-site Deration  at Deserted Bay while it is  being used tor the Native  I nvironmental programme.  From Ihe time the students  and members of staff board  the MV PRICE in Egmont  ni 8:00 a.m. on Monday  morning until Ihev disembark  al approximately noon on Friday, Ron assumes full responsibility for Ihe educational  and material well-being of  Ihe Ivv Liiiv students enrolled in  Ihe programme for the semester. In I his responsibility he is  assisted by ihe other members  nl staff: Assistant Teacher  Greg Miller. Teacher's Aide  Jamie Dixon, Maintenance  Man Paul Duple, and Cook  Joan Marshall.  For the students coming  from thc Gibsons area, the  week begins at about 5:00  a.m. on Monday as the bus  Laves al 6:00 a.m. to collect  students en route for embarkation ai Egmont.

Monday and  Thursday evenings are  devoted to recreational activities. There is usually  "disco" type recreation on  Thursday evening, but some  of the students have become  bored with this and are in  the process of setting up a  mini-band programme using  instruments and music associated with the regular band  programmes at the various  high schools. They use thc  cookhouse for their practices.  Students who do not wish to  take part in any of the organized activities are free to  read or play games if they can  do so with the noise level from  the "disco" in the classroom  or the "band" practice in the  cookhouse. If not, they are  free to engage in these  activities in the dormitories,  although male and female  students are restricted to  their respective dormitories  at this time.  Wake up is at 6:45 followed  by a run or warm up between  7:00 and 7:30 a.m. Most of  thc students and some of the  staff jog every day and their  prowess is reported on a chart  in ihe combination cookhouse  and diningroom. A number  of students have given up  smoking. Morning duty  commences at 7:30 with  breakfast at 8:00 a.m., clean  up al 9:00 a.m. and the first  class period of the day at  9:30 a.m. There is a break at  10:45 a.m. and the second  period of ihe day commences  at 11:00 lasting until 11:45  and so to lunch again at noon.  It is obviously nol possible  to duplicate a regular high  school curriculum al an isolated location thirty miles up  Jervis Inlet, but thc Native  Environmental Studies  programme does teach the  cure curriculum and endeavours insular as is possible to  schedule time allotments  in accordance wilh the School  Calendar.

The drawing up of the  school curriculum was coordinated by Director of Special Education Ed Nicholson,  Chairman of thc Native  Environmental Studies  Committee whose other members were: Ted Dixon, Maureen Clayton, Ron Fcarn,  Clarence Joe Senior, Dcrwyn  Owen, Marta McKovvn, and  Dave Smelhurst. This committee was assisted by several teachers other than those  on the committee and by many  other people too numerous  to list in full. The task of designing a curriculum was complicated by a number of factors, one or two of which are  still in the process of being  resolved as the programme  pushes forward.  Probably the most important single difficulty is the  dearth of curriculum related  material on the topic of the  Seehelt Indian Nation and its  lore. The continuing efforts  to solve this problem will be  dealth with in thc next article.  Another complication is the  enrollment of students from  three distinct grade levels  and three different schools  nol all of which use the same  text books in mathematics  for example. Furthermore,  Pender Harbour Secondary  School and Chatelech Junior  High School are fully semes-  tered whereas Elphinstone  Junior-Senior Secondary  School is only partly semes-  tered. Flexibility, therefore,  becomes the key word in designing programmes to meet  Amm\\mWmWBSSCSSk  In just about any building it  is smoke from combustion  lhal first presents danger, and  if allowed to develop and  spread, causes death to thc  inhabitanis.  This is because of two characteristics of the smoke itself. In the first place it is  frightening, making people  blind and creating panic  reactions. Secondly, smoke is  largely composed of toxic-  gases, which can affect your  brain. You may be unable to  think rationally or act correctly, and your chances of  survival will be lessened. In a  very short period of lime the  poisonous gases will induce  unconsciousness.  The poisonous content  comes from burning objects  in the building such as drapes,  upholstery and rugs. Furniture and countless other manufactured items contain natural and synthetic materials  thai generate toxic gases  simply when heated, let alone  burned.  Recent surveys throughout  Canada show that death by  fire has increased twenty  percent in thc past len vears.  In 1976, 829 people lost their  lives in fires. At least half of  those deaths would have been  prevented, had a smoke detection unit been installed.  There are two main types of  smoke alarms. Photoelectric  types "see" smoke. They  have a tiny light beam which  spots smoke particles coming  into openings in thc detector. The biggest disadvantage  of this type is that it must be  connected to an electrical  outlet, which renders it inoperative should there be a  power failure. The other,  most popular type, is the  Ionization Detector which  "smells" smoke. This type is  ballcry-opcraicd and its  specialty is quick response to  very small, even invisible  smoke particles from fires Ihat  flare up suddenly. A tiny  trace of radioactive matter,  about thc same as on a watch  dial, ionizes the air in a small  chamber creating electrical  current in it. When smoke  floats in, it disturbs the current and triggers the alarm.  When buying a smoke detector, always make sure that  the one you purchase is ULC  approved. Some makes react  more quickly to smoke than  others, some have test buttons, others you can lest by  Deserted Bay report  By Mike Frankland &  Stephanie Read  Our last week at Tsoh-  nye was quite good except  for one thing ��� our water  line froze up again, but wc  managed once again with  buckets and  pots  of water.  This bucket business makes it  extra hard for the kitchen  clean-up crew, because they  have to wait for all their water  to boil before using it.  The students' main subjects arc the projects or  reports that are read to the  the needs of the various  students. The primary duty of  the Native Environmental  Studies staff in conjunction  with the sponsoring school  has been .to develop specific  programmes for each student  which will satisfy academic  course requirements while  providing an awareness of  man's relationship with the  environment particularly as  it pertains to the traditional  environment, history and  culture of the Sechelt Indian  Nation.  class when finished. Thc reports are usually fairly long  and are based on such topics  as: science and culture.  The reports were worked on  very hard this week and took  most of the students' time.  On Monday, when we  arrived al Tsoh-nye, we heard  from the caretakers that a  cougar had been around the  place. Immediately everybody  was on their guard and always  walked with someone else at  nighl time. Many people  even wore their survival  whistles as a precaution.  But wc never saw him; hc  was heard once but that is  all. He'll probably appear  again while thc students  aren't up there.  On the nighl of December  7 we had a Christmas party  at which everyone exchanged  gifts and kisses. We had a  tree covered in homemade  decorations such as: popcorn string, shaving cream,  cards, and paper.  Some of the group also  used the plankton net, but it  was unsuccessful in getting  very much plankton. Better  luck next time!  PRESENTING  The  blowing a bit of smoke into  them. They should all be  tested regularly. There is a  wide range of prices in various  models. Stick to well known  brands and remember you  usually get what you pay for.  When you have a fire,  seconds can mean the difference between life or death.  A good smoke detector will  provide this vital safety margin.  Fire drills in your home are  also a good idea, especially  in two-story homes with  bedrooms upstairs. If you  have a babysitter, go over  escape plans with her.

An official division game  was scheduled for Saturday  between the Seehelt Renegades and Vancouver United  but failure from Ihe official  referee to appear resulted in  an exhibition game between  Ihe two teams. Hubert Joe  and Frank Hoehne did a good  job referceing and both teams  did their best in the first game  ever played on the new Porpoise Bay field.  The resulting score ended  in a 3-3 tie, with Renegades  goals scored by Bradley Joe,  Verne Joe and Robert Joe.  The terrain of the new field  definitely presented some  hazards to thc players giving  at times the impression that  the game was played in slow-  motion. Vernc*s goal for example seemed to take an  eternity to reach its destination.  These field conditions  could easily be greatly improved by the application of  sod on the existing grounds.  m*  facie Bag?

Gymnastics  Approximately one hundred  people enjoyed an afternoon of  gymnastic exercises which  took place at thc Elphinstone  Gym on November 25. A  good cross-section of exercises pertaining lo the various levels of training, from  beginners to the more advanced, was demonstrated.  Exercises involved mat work,  use of thc spring board and  vault and trampoline, in addition to rhythmic gymnastics,  which is a combination of  calisthenics and dance movements set to music.  Taking part in the event  were thirty students from Gibsons Elementary supervised  by Gordon Stevens and Roger  Douglas, twenty-five students  from Halfmoon Bay, Davis  Bay and Wilson Creek, under  the supervision of Carole  Leibel; ten students from  Roberts   Creek    with    their  Despite vigorous goal mouth action on the part ol the  Renegades, the visiting Vancouver United defence  headed the ball clear in the game pi  park at Porpoise Bay lasl week.  supervisor Orbita Dclos-  Santos; and ten from Cedar  Grove under direction of Jeff  Brown.

Coast News, December 12,197t.  Salmon enhancement  By .lull  i llmd Smith  II  docsn'  seem   like   two  vears since  we first met with  thc  S.F.P.  (Salmonid   En-  banc  enient  Programme)  peop  le    in  Madeira    Park.  Quit  .1 loi h  is happened since  thai  mite  .  nd apparently it  was  time lo  tell us what had  bcei  going  on.   We  got  a  difl'ercnl sei of fares too.  llu chairman was James  Boland. Drnis Deans. Special Projects Manager, did  mosl ol the lalking on behalf  nl SIP. ami explained what  had been done over the past  link- while. Mm Young of the  Federal Fisheries represented  Ray Kraft. Mr. Les Edge-  .v,nili. Executive Director of  ipci'iilions from Vancouver  .lis prescnl as well as two  biologists, Dave Marshall  representing Ihe Federal  Governmeni and a spokesman  from ilu- Provincial Government.  II I was lo go into all the  Mails ol what S.E.P. has  been doing over the past two  .ears throughout the province nl B.C. this story could  ill the paper so I think rather  lian go into all thai perhaps  ,vc should concentrate on the  Sunshine Coasl area.  We were told that 800.000  Jollars had been set aside for  vtream improvement but ihat  millions nf dollars were being  spent un hatcheries, spawning  channels, fishways and lake  fertilization. The latter is a  method of upgrading thc stock  of lisli food in a lake to enhance the growth ol the fish.  A programme involving  siiidcnis from both elementary and secondary school  levels is In he introduced and  in tail is already in operation  in al leasl one of our schools.  The total money lo be spent.  150 million dollars, will be  spread over a period of seven  years instead of thc original  fiveyeas as planned.  No major schemes arc en-  visaged lor the Sunshine  (nasi Inn the region of Jervis Inlet will come ill for some  intensive stream work in  Phase II of the scheme. During the question period it  was made very clear lo the  powers that be, Ihat we would  like lo see that plan moved  ahead to Phase I and it was  also made abundantly clear  that the people wanted more  money spent on stream improvement where Ihev felt  lhal a major part of the fish  increase should come from.  Ihis was emphasized all thc  wav through and as the whole  ol lhc proceedings were recorded on tape, the S.E.P.  people know without any  dnuhl hnvv Ihe people of the  Sunshine Coasl feel.  A proposal to consider  Sechell   Inlet.  Narrows  Inlet  and Porpoise Bay. etc., as an  inland sea and introduce its  own resident salmon was  suggested and that it be made  into a sportsman's paradise,  apparently closed to commercial fishermen. This did not  go down too well with the  representative from the  Fisherman's Union, and the  question of how these so-  called resident salmon were  going to be prevented from  leaving through thc Skookum-  chuk was not answered.  Gilbert Joe suggested that  enhancement of thc creeks in  Jervis Inlet would be a waste  of time unless something was  done aboul seals and sea  lions which he said consumed  a large amount of salmon.  Another long-time fisherman  disputed this and said that  when seals had a bounty on  them he had found very few  salmon inside them vvhen their  stomach contents were  examined. There also seemed  to bc quite a lot of different  views expressed about the  herring fishery and its effect  on the salmon population.  Most, if not all, the speakers emphasized that small  creeks should be given priority  and that the natural way to  produce fish was the best.  Ray Phillips suggested that  the fishermen police themselves when it came to the  enforcement of regulations  and the representative  from the Fisherman's Union  did nol sec why people should  not be paid for their efforts  vvhen Ihcy worked on a creek.  Stream adoption is being  encouraged. In this way a  group of people like thc  Gibson's Wildlife Club who  have adopted Husdon Creek  or an individual like thc old  gentleman in Earls Cove  who has undertaken to look  after a creek himself, can  apply for money to cover  cost of materials etc., in a  project involving that creek  bill the work is all voluntary.  To a question by Bob Janis  of the Sechelt Rod and Gun  Club about culverts, their  sizing and positioning, Denis  Deans assured us that from  now on there will be close  co-operation between Fisheries and the Department of  Highways whenever a culvert  carrying a fish bearing creek  crosses a road.  In the year 1979 a total of  31.5 million dollars will bc  spent bv S.E.P. The Fish and  Wildlife Branch of B.C.  spent $850,000 in 1977,  1.5 million in 1978 and will get  a total of 2 million dollars in  1979.  I am quite sure I have left  out quite a few things in this  summary of the evening's  proceedings and I apologize  to those people whose pet  projects were left out. but this  report will give some idea of  what S.E.P. is all aboul with  particular reference lo the  Sunshine Coast where we  have a multitude of small  creeks which have the capability of supporting healthy  fish populations, salmon.  trout and sleclhead. In many  cases they have supported  major runs in the past, according to some of the old-  timers and there seems to be  no good reason why they  shouldn't do thc same thing  in thc future with a little bit  of help from thc people.  The meeting adjourned at  11:30 p.m.  Anyone wishing lo receive  more information about S.E.P.  should contact them at 1090  West Pender Street, Vancouver, B.C. V6E2P1.  Teacher  transfer  Effective January 2, Ian  Nichols will be transferred  from Chatelech Junior Secondary School to the staff of  Sechelt Elementary School.  This transfer is being effected  to relieve the over-crowding al  Sechell Elementary School.  The Coast News contacted  Mr. Nichols who is very much  looking forward lo his new  assignment, which will be  with a Grade 5 class.  The Board of School Trustees is presently awaiting a  response from the Department of Education in connection with their request for  funding to move a portable  classrooom from Pender Harbour Secondary School to the  site of the school at West  Sechelt, to provide more classroom space. A teacher from  the main school will be assigned to the portable.  Gibsons Auxiliary  Bv Marie Trainor  This young lady obviously approves of this locally-  crafted rocking horse.

Filly-five members and visitors of Ihe Gibsons Hospital  Auxiliary enjoyed their Christmas luncheon meeting at the  Gibsons Arena. The ladies of  the Curling Rink catered so  well, auxiliary husbands may  have suffered at dinner time.  Mrs. Ida Leslie became Mrs.  Santa Claus and dislnbuted  gifts to each lady.  It was filling lhal thc first  Iwo door prizes were won by  Edna Husby and Helen Weinhandl, as Ihese two ladies are  not only hard-working members of the auxiliary, hut also  hard-working caterers at the  Arena. Amy Blain and Margaret Inglis won the other two  door prizes.  Because it was a social  meeting, the business was  condensed. The combined  contribution through the Gift  and Thrill Shops, the Extended Care Unit and Physiotherapy saw twenty-  seven volunteers work a hundred and twenty-six hours in  and for the hospital during Ihe  month of November. Novelties and hand-knit garments  were displayed before going  on to the Gill Shop for sale.  Phoebe Blomgrcn's crafts  were greatly admired.  Wc Love enjoyed catering to  the Gibsons Lions Club and  were happy lo serve their  Ladies' Night, October 28, at  Harmony Hall. Wc are serving a turkey dinner for the  C.N.I.B. Friday December 8 at  the same hall.  The quilt on which we have  been working for some time is  now ready to tic and have the  border sewn on. Watch for it.

Now that thc final short list  has been announced all Canada is looking heavenward in  anticipation of thc final decision from Ottawa. Will the  new plane be thc F-16, the  single engine plane which  might not withstand thc  Arctic weather, or will il bc  thc F-I8A, the plane especially designed lo operate from  aircraft carriers'.' It must matter little to the Cabinet that  our last aircraft carrier was  the ill-fated Bonavcnturc.  But why dwell on past boondoggles when wc arc about to  nosedive into yet another  mess.  It is as if our military  policy was formed after the  Cabinet sat through a private  showing of Star Wars. You  have to admit all those sleek  looking planes have a certain  appeal. Canada, however,  laces real life decisions and  thc decision to buy expensive  tighter aircraft at this point hi  our military history is a bad  Toward the Alexander Mackenzie Stone  Voyage of the Sea-Raker  bv Bruce Woodsworth  From the dinghy, nearby  Carter Passage looked like a  good short-cut westwards to  Wells Passage. Not so when  examined by chart 3596 (Port  Harvey to Queen Charlotte  Strait): Sea Raker only drew  three ft. of water���and it  might make the 5-mile-narrow  Carter Passage, but Tajow  drew 5.5 feet from waterline to  lower edge of its heavy lead  keel. Read as at low tide,  none of this passage's depths  appeared to be less than two  fathoms (12 ft.). But already  I had cut my eye teeth on  charts which didn't even show  all the submerged rocks, let  alone their depths. From now  on both boats would have to bc  doubly cautious; marineways  with boat lifts so that one  could work on damaged hull or  propeller would be practically  non-existent.  With regret I scaled off the  7.5 mi. back to Sullivan Bay,  then the 5.5 mi. W and S to  Napier Bay in Tracey Harbour. With regret I compared  this 13 mi, distance to our next  port-of-call, to the 8 mi. via  Carter Passage; then privately  marvelled that our voyage was  already turning me into a compromiser���a Caspar Milquetoast instead of a man of derring-do.  According to Maryanne  West's "CBC Upsets Film  Makers" (Coast News 28 Nov.  1978), the ability to compromise is a Canadian characteristic. A Charles Dalfen referred several times to this  trait: "...to accept differences  and live with things we can't  change". It is a quality she  finds hard to knock on the one  hand, "because obviously thc  art of living with others and  thc art of compromise arc very  closesly allied, yet surely it  does deprive us of thc sort of  vibrant, dynamic society  which is essential if we're  going to survive as a nation?"

Write  Miles Ind., 1293 Marine Dr.,  North Vancouver, B.C. #50  Last July I hadn't, of  course, read her comments on  Canadians as compromisers,  but 1 was reflecting even then  that perhaps this big West  Coast land of infinite sky and  water, asking no favours and  granting none, might just, in  the long run, deal a wee bit  more leniently with "the compromise"���'something lying  midway between, or combining the qualities of, two different things' rather than with  a fakeroo swashbuckling attitude as typified by the late  'Australian-American' actor  Errol Flynn?  So with that bit of homespun philosophy tucked into  our fisherman's waistbands,  Sea Raker's crew of three followed dutifully Tajow's crew  of two, counterclockwise  three-quarters of thc way  around North Broughton Island. We had weighed anchor  at 1500 hrs. (3 p.m. for landlubbers), and passed Sullivan  Bay at 1615 hrs., then dropping anchor in Napier Bay at  the far end of Tracey Harbour at 1715 hrs. Here wc  found a very large and seemingly modern logging camp  and wharf, completely deserted except for a watchman.  This shut down because of  tinder-dry woods conditions  seemed typical of the entire  coast, for when we returned  home at the end of July  we found that, apart from two  tiny evening drizzles, there  had been no rain for 52 days���  a record stretching back for  many years.  So far two conditions prevailed: no logging due to  dry woods; dry throats due  to a bar strike. By Monday,  July 17 we would find no fish  because of a tendcrmen's  strike for higher pay, supported somewhat unwillingly by  trawlers, gill ncttcrs, purse  seiners, and cannery workers.  For many years it had  seemed to me that proper bargaining machinery made up of  representative employer-trade  union-government officials,  but functioning all year round,  would have forestalled both  beer and fish strikes. That is  how Schandinavian social  democratic countries have  maintained almost continuous working conditions for  many years, whereas Canadian and American industries  apparently enjoy working and  striking using what 1 call the  "Brinkmanship Method".  This method functions very  simply���you just wire to South  Africa and order a flock of ostriches, then train them to dig  holes in the sand, place their  heads in same; then use their  brainless feet and long legs to  cover similarly brainless  heads completely with sand.  A wonderful technique thai  works perfectly���sometimes  lasting for three or four  months!  Here wc do nothing about  renewing contracts until thc  deadline is less lhan a week  away. The union then puts in  cxhorbitant demands al the  last moment, which they know  full well could never bc met.  Two days later, after ignoring  these demands, the employer  issues a statement to (he effect that 'a careful perusal of  union demands has drawn  them to the unwilling conclusion that business conditions  There is no question that  our aging fleets of CF-I0I  Voodoos and CF-104 Star  fighters arc obsolete. But thc  question that has not been  answered by thc Liberal  government is whether or not  wc should automatically and  unthinkingly replace these  costly planes. The plain fact  is that our military requirements have changed since  1961 when we look delivery on  the Voodoos and Starlighters  and our military policy should  reflect this fact.  Thc government claims wc  need these planes for service  in two areas of lhc world ���  Canada and Europe. However, strong arguments can  be made Ihat these planes  are not needed in either  place.  Barney Danson. the current  Minister of Defense, insists  that wc need these planes  because they will offer, "adequate protection against a  bomber attack on thc North  American continent".  Wonderful. Someone  should inform Mr. Danson  that wc have been in Ihe missile age for some years now.  North America would only  come under attack in the  case of an all-out nuclear  war, and if this were to happen both sides would be wiped  out before the first bomber  got halfway to its target.  Somehow the government  has got it into its head that  our allies expect us to maintain an air presence in Europe  as part of our NATO commitments. This is just not the  case.  The decision to purchase  thc fighters was made in  principle in 1975. That year  James Sehlcsingcr in his capacity as thc U.S.Secretary of  Defense on a visit to Ottawa  have been in such an unstable  state as lo make it impossible  ��� to meet such as the union pro-  poses'. Both sides call off  their dogs���which withdrawal is carefully supervised by  a government negotiator���and  thc strike (or lockout) is on...  "Oh, Canada, we stand on  guard for thee."  said that we really did not  need new planes over there.  Instead he said that "well  equipped ground forces would  be thc mosl illustrious contribution Canada could make  to Western security."  Even if we persist in placing these planes iu Europe  there is a good chance they  will hc useless in a combat  role. The lead article in lhc  October 1978 issue of Scientific American points to the  increasing sophistication of  the new "smart weapons".

The lighter aircraft may  well bc in for the same talc  as lhc battleship; Once  again Canada is buying into  the tail end of a technology  when we should bc in al the  beginning of a new one.  If we go ahead with this  aircraft purchase we will not  receive thc last new plane  before 1987, and by then wc  will have locked ourselves  into a questionable military  strategy until at least thc  year 2.000. Before we do that,  docs it not make sense to take  a little bit of time to allow for  thc drawing up of a White  Paper on Defense? Then a  rational national debate could  take place around Ihat White  Paper before we make any  long term military commitments.  In thc meantime, may I  suggest to the Cabinet thai  they take a little field trip to  our airbase at Trenton. Ontario. There they will find,  waiting for their inspection,  thirty-eight mint new CF-5  tighter planes. They have  been there since thc early  I9o0's and they have yet lo  sec a single day's service.

He found an old cutting he  had saved from a magazine  published in New Albany.  The writer explained how she  had taken the leaves and in  her case some blanches from  a black walnut tree and  spread litem around where her  dog slept and in a few days  the fleas were gone.  Don tried it on his cat this  year. He did il a little differently. He tilled a cardboard box with leaves and left  the cat in il for half an hour.  Needless to say the cat  objected strongly, but after  half an hour when the poor  creature was given its freedom, there was no more  scratching. He mentioned that  lhc leaves should be green for  this to work. Thc leaves from  thc black walnuts that I know  of have already taken their  yearly leap to the ground, but  it will be good to keep this in  mind fur next year.  Still on cats. Anne C'argvlc  in Roberts Creek is playing  mother to a very affectionate,  striped torn who walked in  one day from thc cold.

Doggone it:  Here's a letter thai came in  by mail, in reply to a wee  thing I wrote last week  about Mrs. Price's dog coining  home injured:  "If Mrs. Price's dug was  injured on a recent Friday  around 12 noon to I p.m..  please ask her lo think back  to the injury and ask herself  whether this injury could lime  been caused In ,i .22 creasing  it.  I live cm acreage with  livestock five miles from Gower Point and was forced*  to shoot al a handsome  marauder of age and breeding  described. The dog's lace  reminded me of a coon's  mask in reverse colouration.  Under the dog's chin dangled  a metal disc.  If Mrs. Price feels I am  describing her dog and its  injury, she may be surprised  to learn a) the dog is ti killer,  b) it  is roaming  far afield,  c) if it comes again 1 will  reluctantly use a shotgun  instead of the .22.  I'm glad the dog recovered,  bul doubt if it has learned to  avoid livestock. I suggest that  the dog in any event bc  kept under its owners' control  as law demands, and nol  allowed to run loose, a  hazard to itself and others.  forgive me for not identifying myself.
