 I  The Sunshine  Published at Gibsons, B.C.  15�� per copy on newsstands  Serving the Sunshine Coast since 1945  September 26, 1978  Volume 31, Number 39  Forestry active too  More herbicide spraying  Pictured above are members of the Canadian World Youth Exchange  Program which will see Canadian and Indonesian youths living and  working locally for the next ten weeks.     Members of most of the  Municipal convention  Of definite value  Most of the local Regional Board members and village aldermen were out of town last week at the U.B.C.M. convention  held in Penticton. Many of them stayed in thc interior for a few  days after the conclusion of the convention and were unavailable for comment.  Regional Board Chairman Harry Almond was back in time to  make a few observations to the Coast News upon request.  Almond said that for him the convention was most worthwhile  with interesting conversations being held on a variety of topics  with others involved in local government from all over B.C.  One particular subject which struck responsive chords was  the vexing question of waste disposal. Almond particularly  singled out the municipality of Nelson as one which shared a  similar dilemma to the Sunshine Coast. Nelson, too, is running  out of suitable sites for landfill disposal and is being forced to  look at incineration as a possible disposal method. Almond said  that the Nelson officials were eager to agree to an information  sharing with the Sunshine Coast.  Almond also cited various discussions with officials from the  Departments of Highways and Municipal Affairs as being most  worthwhile and a seminar given on the Cost of Growth also  as being most interesting.  "I found the convention to be most definitely of value,"  said Almond.  The Regional Board Chairman did say that from remarks  made to the convention by Municipal Affairs Minister Hugh  Curtis it would appear that some changes are in store for  Regional Districts regardless of the findings of the commission  that recently toured the province. The Municipal Affairs Minister said that "the people are particularly fed up with the  planning activities of the Regional Boards".  families who will be billeting the young people are also pictured.  Alderman Ted Hume and Jon McRae welcomed them to Gibsons  On behalf of the Village and the Chamber of Commerce.  Wristwrestlers prevail  Local champions  Ernest and Emily Lowe celebrated their 56th wedding anniversary recently in  Gibsons. Letters of congratulations were received from Prime Minister Trudeau,  Joe Clark, Jack Pearsall, and the Governor General.  Lawyer donates services  By Richard Underwood  Saturday, September 16, proved to be a day of reckoning  at the Skyline Hotel in Richmond for a few members of the  Sunshine Coast Wrist Wrestling Association. There they were  pitted against assorted Canadian National and Provincial  champions in a day long wrist wrestling tournament. Three of  Gibsons' finest ��� Pierre Berdahl, featherweight; Craig Norris,  lightweight; and J'm Peers Jr., heavyweight ��� took first place  honours in their respective weight classes, to the "loud"  jubilation of their many Gibsons supporters present.  Berdahl displayed near perfect form snuffing out his opponents, among them the Canadian National and Alberta champs.  He lost only one match throughout the day, but quickly rectified that shortly after. Very exciting!  The Canadian lightweight champ, previously unbeaten for  the last two years, did not last long under the persuasive  arms of Craig Norris. Norris showed his stuff successfully all  day.  Jim Peers Jr. dusted off a massively built former world  champion twice in his quest for first place, and made short  work of the others, allowing himself no losses.  Harry Kammerle of Pender Harbour finished the day with a  third place trophy for lightweights, doing very well.  All the above athletes have been trained by Paul-Peter  Klachan. Paul has his World Class Referee's ticket and has  given much of his time to the sport during the time he has lived  on the coast! He was a chief official at the Skyline in Richmond,  where he did a commendable job throughout the long day.  Brad Norris was there as Assistant Referee.  Congratulations to the local men above for an ear-splitting,  nerve-wrecking, heart-stopping and heart-warming performance.  On Wednesday, Mark Kevin  Everard, a Gibsons resident,  was saved from a possible  unjust conviction when a  lawyer rose to defend him.  Thc lawyer. Richard Achtcm,  was scaled in thc court awaiting a trial for which his ser  vices had been retained. Mr.  Everard was without counsel  and had pleaded not guilty  to a charge of speeding, the  charge having been laid by  the R.C.M.P. after investigation of an accident involving two vehicles one of which  Project underway  Co-ordinator of Special Services for School Distriel #���)!>.  Ed Nicholson, reports that the Native Environmental Studies  project at Deserted Bay in Jervis Inlet is now in full operation.  Nicholson has just returned from a visit to the silo and found  staff and particularly the students settling down very nicely.  The project, the first of its kind in the province, sees twenty  students from Grades 9���11 and two instructors in residence  at Deserted Bay where in addition to studying local Indian  legend and lore they are taking regular school courses. The  students are divided evenly, ten white and ten Indian, and ten  male and ten female.  According to the Special Services Co-ordinator there were, as  was expected, some original organizational difficulties in that  twenty-two courses over three grade levels are being offered.  "The logistics of the thing are quite complex." said Nicholson.  "but the co-operation of the students has just been first rate"  The pioneer group weathered its first crisis during 'Black  Tuesday' of the first week when mechanical failures  and other difficulties beset them but by the time thc Special  Services Co-ordinator arrived on the Thursday the difficulties  had been resolved and the morale was high.  By Ian Corrance  While court cases and public meetings to stop B.C  spraying 120 acres in Pender Harbour were going on  disconcerting to discover that the Forestry, on September b\  sprayed 216 acres in the Skwakwa River Valley at thc head of  Jervis Inlet.  The chemical dropped by helicopter was Krenite. It is manufactured by Dupont.  Although costs of the project had not as yet been compiled,  Paul Kuster of the Forestry Suppression Crew in Sechelt was  willing, after authorization from Vancouver, to share what  information was available to him.  "Krenite, according to Dupont specifications is a low toxicity  chemical with a half life of fourteen days. The spraying conditions were established by Bayne Vance of the Pesticide Control  Branch, members of thc Federal Fisheries and the Department  of the Environment were present during the application, and coming from Thelma McAdam  Provincial Fisheries were advised of the project." who has been travelling and  The reason for the spraying   growth rate to a point where   campaigning against the use  there would be little danger to  the trees.  If the clearing was done  by hand the root systems  would still bc intact and grow-  in again the next year, whereas  the  spraying  would   kill  the roots and  new  growths       would   have   to   Mart    from  Hydro scratch. Hand clearing would  it is also be very slim, possibly  as little as one acre a day.  which would necessitate a  constant rotation lo keep the  area cleared.  This same chemical Krenite  was scheduled to bc applied  in the Bowser area, twenty  miles north of Qualicum on  Vancouver Island. The public  protest in thc area was such  that for this year at least the  programme was stopped.  This  information   was  forth-  was to cut back the salmon  and thimble berry, which  had grown to a height of ten  feet and were choking the two-  feet high trees. At this time of  year the coniferous trees  have    slowed    down    their  Tordon 10-K  Labelling and  storage in doubt  No decision has been reached as to whether charges will bc  laid in connection with the dumping a few weeks ago of Tordon  10-K Into Clowholm Lake. If charges are laid they will be laid  under Sections 36 and 40 of the Pesticide Control Act dealing  with storage and labelling of pesticides.  Section 36, dealing with storage, reads:  "A person, other than a licensed pesticide vendor, who is  responsible for the storage of a Schedule I or II pesticide, or a  slgnable formulation of a Schedule III pesticide, shall ensure  that  (a) the facility in which the pesticide is stored Is lockable and  ventilated to the outside atmosphere;  (b) a placard is affixed and maintained on the outside of each  door leading Into the facility In which the pesticide is stored  bearing the words "Warning���Chemical Storage���Authorized  Persons Only" In block letters clearly visible; and  (c) no unauthorized person can enter the facility In which Ihe  pesticide is stored without the express permission of the person responsible."  Section 40, dealing with labelling, reads:  "Where a pesticide is handled, stored, or transported and is  not labelled by individual package, the drum, holding or transport tank, or other container shall display a label in a conspicuous place showing the product and chemical name, thc concentration, the name of the manufacturer or owner, and instructions to notify the administrator, or such other person as thc  administrator may require, in the event of accidental or other  discharge of the pesticide into the environment."  of unproven chemicals, one  of which she feels, because of  its newness, is Krenite.  McAdam also pointed out,  that in the Nimpkish Valley.  where the fish stocks were  decimated by D.D.T. in the  Fifties, Hydro is planning to  apply 2,4-D. This is unfortunate as the Federal government is presently pouring  money into fish enhancement  in the very area where the  chemical will be applied.  The Water investigation  Branch of the government  planned to apply 2,4-D in  other areas in the Interior.  At Kelowna they met with  successful municipal opposition; the same situation came  up in Peachland and the  opposition was equally successful. In the North Arm of  the Okanagan they also mel  with resistance, but in Ihis  case it was overridden and  the 2,4-D was applied ���  allegedly to the surprise of  the residents.  It docs seem that it no  longer is a question of whether  chemical control of under-  brush is advisable and beneficial, but thc criteria lor  application is based entirely  on thc amount and power of  the opposition encountered  in an area which has been  designated for application.  This can by no stretch of the  imagination be seen as a  logical or scientific way to  use modern technology.  71  $T ""  was driven by Mr. Everard.  Crown Counsel Dan MacLeod  had already questioned the  investigating officer, Constable Turlock, and was questioning Constable Dolhan when  Mr. Achtcm rose from his  seal and went to Counsel's  table to speak to Mr. Everard.  Hc then declared to the Court  Ihat he was representing Mr.  Everard.  The Crown's case had been  based on what Crown Counsel  called "expert opinion" as  to the minimum speed an  automobile would have been  (ravelling which skidded  seventy to seventy-five feet  before halting. Constable  Dolhan's expertise was  based on an intensive one  week training course and his  personal investigation of  hundreds of accidents. Defence Counsel, however, contended that this had no  relevance. Mr. Achtcm  afterwards told thc Coast  News that he realized as it  proceeded that the Crown's  case was spurious, and so  he went to Mr. Everard and  Continued on Page eight  Debby MacLean demonstrates a rather unorthodox dismounting technique wilh  her horse Camella.

Five  were reported on Gower  Point Road, and a goat was  reported killed by one on a  property on Highway 101.  Complaints have also come in  from the Pender Harbour  area.  GIBSONS AREA  September 20: A motor vehicle in a parking lot on Highway 101 was broken into. A  308 Savage ride, a 4X scope  and Iwo boxes of 30-30 shells  were taken.  September 21: A break-in  and theft at a residence on  Reid Road was reported. A  small jewel box and ils contents were taken: a value has  not as yet been placed on the  missing items. A home on  Crucil Road was also broken  into. Nothing appeared to bc  missing. A juvenile was  apprehended and charges arc  pending. A liquid air regulator, oxy-acetylenc tanks and  fifty feet of hose with a cutting torch were stolen from a  property on Stuart Road.  Value of the items was set  at $350. Two cars in thc  Gibsons Legion parking  lot were broken into. Nothing  was taken from the first car;  $75 in fishing equipment and  a coat were taken  from  the  second.

The goose and the gander  Sonic- interesting stuff out of Penticton  lasl week from the convention of B.C.  Municipalities. Of particular note was the  chastisemenl thai local governments  received Irom the provincial government  aboul the accumulation of budgetary  surpluses. Il is simply not acceptable,  apparently, lor local governments to  accumulate surpluses. The provincial  government says so.  Yes. Martha. Ihis is the same provincial government which is boasting in  virtually the same newspapers that it  has a budgetary surplus of $140 million  dollars. What is sauce for the provincial  goose is not sauce for thc municipal  gamier, it would appear.  We would dispute that any government  has the right to accumulate surpluses.  A government is not a business, it sells  no goods. What moneys it has it gets  from one source and one source alone ���  thc pocket of the taxpayer, if a government has accumulated a surplus it is  quite simply taking too much from thc  taxpayer.  What makes the instructions of the  provincial government to the municipal  governments the more hypocritical  is the fact that this provincial government  took dead aim on budgetary surpluses as  soon as it took office. Do we remember  how the insurance rates shot up; how the  ferry fares doubled? Do we remember  how a significant portion of school taxes  was shifted from the provincial area of  responsibility to the shoulders of local  taxpayers? Accumulating surpluses is  not just acceptable at the provincial level,  it is virtually a tenet of Socred faith.  Bennett the First perfected the technique and Bennett the Younger has  followed faithfully in the old man's  footsteps. First you take as much money  as you can from the pockets of the taxpayer, hoard it, then when it comes time  to seek re-election you begin to buy  votes by distributing election goodies.  It is practical, it works, it wins elections,  it is also a perfect example of what is  wrong with democracy. Governments  are not elected after trial in the arena of  ideas but by purchasing votes with  money cynically hoarded for that  purpose.  And that is why it is unacceptable for  municipal governments to have surpluses. Moneys allotted to the municipalities  and not spent should, by divine right of  budgetary surpluses, be in Victoria swelling the Socred pre-election slush funds.  How else can our masters purchase our  support?  Just like typographical errors  A professor of law was on the C.B.C.  radio thc other day recommending that  the Ford Motor Company be charged with  murder in the case of deaths occasioned  by I'intos which break into flames when  rear-ended al normal city traffic speed.  Deaths have occurred in (laming accidents caused by the unsafe construction  of the Pinto.  According to the gentleman in question  there was a memo circulated at a high  level in the Ford Corporation which  acknowledged that. yes. deaths could  occur because of the defect in the Pinto  bul    recommended   against   correcting  thc flaw because of the high expense.  A few weeks ago we mentioned the  representative of Ford who, while hosting  a dinner for the publishers of B.C. Community newspapers, drew polite and  approving laughter when he likened the  Pinto affair to typographical errors. The  analogy stands revealed in ail its crass-  ness with the news that Ford knew the  Pinto was unsafe and could kill but  delayed corrective action until the deaths  had taken place.  If the principle that cost-effectiveness  is more important than human life  gains acceptance the poor could be facing  a rough future.  What comfort we can  One of the difficulties of writing editorials weekly is finding something positive to say. On the international, national,  and provincial fronts cynicism, corruption  and dishonesty surround us. Just add  stupidity and stir.  On the same day we hear thc Canadian  Government is borrowing $750 million  to shore up the falling dollar we also hear  wc arc spending S2 billion on fighter  planes. We learn that from the beginning of the embargo against Rhodesia,  successive   British   governments   knew  British oil was being supplied the racist  and rebellious regime.  One searches in vain for something  cheering. Let us content ourselves with  noting thc fall equinox and wishing for a  pleasant fall. Let us take note that friend  and columnist George Matthews had  thc Vancouver Sun pick up and reprint  one of his Slings and Arrows columns in  last Saturday's Sun. Let us take what  simple comfort we can find with our  friends and families. There is much else  to make us mournful.  from trie files of Coast News  m |  5 YEARS AGO  A proposal from Ian Mackenzie  Junior lo have a curling rink built at  the foot of Shaw Road was defeated  by Gibsons Council.  Sechell Council heard from Federal M.P. Harry Olaussen about the  best methods of obtaining assistance from larger governments for  local projects.  10 YEARS AGO  Liberal Federal M.P. Ray Perreault  described the Canadian economy as  being 'a paradox in paradise'. Mr.  Perreault said that better fiscal  controls would be necessary. Perreault said much of the problem was  occasioned by greediness and inflation.  Jack Mayne received a reply from  Prince Philip on the occasion of a  message of loyalty sent to Queen  Elizabeth to mark the twenty-first  birthday of the Chamber of Commerce.  15 YEARS AGO  Piper Eric Thompson marked the  official opening of the Twilight  Theatre.  An all-candidates meeting in the  School Hall in Gibsons saw Tony  Gargrave, N.D.P., Isabel Dawson,  Socred, and Frank McCloskey address a crowd of 150 persons.  For Sale: Alder and Maple $8.00  per load, $10.00 delivered.  20 YEARS AGO  After a trip to Europe in the company of Robert Bonner, Dr. G.Shrum  addressed the Sechelt Peninsula  Board of Trade that the tendency  towards higher wages and shorter  work hours was keeping the consumer from benefitting from scientific advances.  Scotty Melville of the Regina  Leader Post is quoted in the Coast  News as saying that there is nothing  wrong with the B.C. Lions that a  few wins wouldn't cure. Melville  points out that this is only the Lions'  fifth year of operation and many  had pointed out that not too much  could be expected in the first live  years.  25 YEARS AGO  M.L.A.Tony Gargrave says that  the new Black Ball Ferry across  Howe Sound has created serious  parking problems in the village of  Gibsons.  30 YEARS AGO  A seaweed encrusted book found  locally by Charles P.Smith of Gibsons  and which appeared to be the log  of Christopher Columbus' voyage  to the Americas has been declared to  be a fraud by Dr. Frederick W.  Meisnest of the University of Washington. The real log of the voyage  was thrown overboard by Columbus  when caught in a storm on his way  home. It has never been found.  The Hudson's Bay Company sidewheeler SS BEAVER, first  steamer on the North Pacific coast, was built in Britain in 1835  (not 1855, as shown) and arrived here a year later. After an  illustrious career sailing the waters of New Caledonia and a  rather ignominious twilight as a tug, the ship struck a reef at  the foot of Prospect Point in 1889. Tom McCain, whose name  appears where the inner ring cuts the sheer bank, on a series of  midnight trips gathered all the copper fittings he could retrieve  from the doomed craft. Then, with the use of a photograph,  he had souvenir medals cast, of which this is a view of the  obverse of No. 397 of the third and final series. McCain's  venture was the first anywhere in which metal from a ship was  used to form commemorative pieces. The entrepreneur then  wrote a book on the BEAVER and on his undertaking. Both  medals and book are highly prized bits of Canadiana today.  Photo courtesy Gordon Ballentine and Elphinstone Pioneer  Museum. L.R.Peterson  The trouble witli chemicals  and thc various uses to which  they are put is that wc of thc  Western world have been on  an absolute binge for a couple  of generations now. Whether  you want your mood altered,  or your calf to grow, or your  bronchitis cleared up. or your  lake or right-of-way cleared  there is a chemical compound  that does thc job.  lt stems, I think, from thc  false and idolatrous place lo  which wc have raised science  in general here in thc west.  So great have been the advances and so striking the  various breakthroughs we  have become convinced that  there is a chemical compound  which will clear up ail our  difficulties.  The latest shocker is that  much of the meal we eat is  shot wiih anti-biotics administered to cattle when alive.  People with allergies to  anti-biotics are justifiably  alarmed at this latest. Of  course, they are being told  thai there is too little of thc  anti-biotics in thc meat lo be  a factor bul a lack of Irusl in  thc experts is becoming  chronic and whether fears are  misplaced or not Ihcy are  real.  Another article in lhc  newspapers assures us Ihat  several new compounds have  been developed to encourage  growth in calves alter a  predecessor known as D.E.S.  was found to bc cancer-  causing in the people who  ale Ihe meal.  We hear lhal there is a  strain of gonorrhea which has  become resistant lo antibiotics, thai Ihe bugs in  fact are lighting back.  Is it loo much lo say lhal  we have been a society loo  much in haste, that we have  become inclined lo sec  short-term solutions in a  convenient pill or injection in  too many areas of human  activity. Thc lisl of chemicals  once thought safe and used  in abundance grows. No one  now hears of D.D.T. and yet  il once was a household word.  Thalidomide was hailed as a  wonder drug for pregnant  women until its terrible side  effects shocked the world.  Our scientists are pampered  and subsidized to produce  ever newer miracle compounds which will cure all  our ills. Our doctors prescribe  vast quantities of compounds  on a daily basis, often treating  symptoms rather than causes.  So complete is our dependence on chemicals that a few  years ago when a so-called  counter-culture was flourishing it loo relied for its  insight and direction on thc  product of chemical laboratories. I've had otherwise intelligent friends argue with  mc long and hard that the  chemical L.S.D. was thc key  to man's future happiness.  Their counter-culture amounted to saying, "our chemicals  arc better than your chemicals".  Wc are beginning, however  to bc disenchanted. From the  Orient comes a mechanical  method of Healing suffering  called acupuncture which  requires nothing but thc  temporary insertion of  needles. Diseases like rheumatism and arthritis for which  our doctors have been able to  do nothing but prescribe  painkillers are responding to  the new ? met hods.  People are proving in  o'utcroppings of enterprise  everywhere that it is possible  to grow nourishing food without the massive use of chemical fertilizers.  It is not the purpose here to  decry thc work of thc chemical  industry in its entirety.  Obviously, great and valuable  discoveries have been made  which have improved thc  human condition and removed  much of Ihe suffering and thc  pain thai is part of thc human  lot.  But our unquestioning faith  in the work of our scientists is being appropriately  shaken.Appropriately because  it is an unhealthy thing to  have an unquestioning populace accepting without  question Ihe discoveries  fostered upon them by a  handful of specialized men  whose comfortable livings arc  furnished by those who stand  to profit by the ever more  wide-spread use of chemicals.  Skepticism about drug-taking is certainly not absent,  but it's always the drugs  that the other person takes  that constitute the problem.  When we add the common  usage drugs like alcohol,  nicotine, and caffeine to the  vast quantities of prescribed  drugs and illicit drugs in  circulation wc have a picture  of a society in which the  majority of its members are  virtually always under the  influence of something or  other. Wc arc all of us popping happiness pills of one  kind or another.  Wc no longer confront  our difficulties and solve  them. Wc ingest something  that makes us forget them.  Wc no longer apply our  people's energy to rendering  our environment better  but leave them drawing  unemployment insurance and  welfare and send a handful  of men wilh expensive  chemicals lo kill what wc  consider to be undesirable.  Perhaps the current and  growing skepticism and concern about the rampaging  use of chemicals is an  indication thai wc arc beginning to learn thai there are  no answers that are miracle  answers, lhal everything we  use and do affects us. Maybe  wc will develop a sense of  thc long-term before our  short-term aims and solutions  combine to make a long-  term anything unlikely.  '  Slings & Arrows  George Matthews  Like the lemmings running  mythically for the Atlantic  cliffs, thousands of students  and their teachers plunged  suicidally back to the treacherous slopes of academia  this month and the annual  ritual was accompanied by the  usual media hype designed to  make us believe that education is the chief battleground  in the great Canadian culture  war.  A couple of teachers in the  province were suspended  for possession of funny tobacco. Pat McGeer moralized  about how the insidious rot  at the core of education would  be excised by the Socred  scalpel. Robert Fulford, in  a thoughtful editorial in  Saturday Night showed how  school libraries and librarians  have become the focal point  of anti-pornography campaigns by the likes of Renaissance International (we won't  find out who they are until  they come out of the closet).  The Martlet, the University  of Victoria student newspaper, condescendingly  defended professors who  drank beer in the student pub.  In fact the Martlet item went  oh to say that as long  as  professors didn't   (perform an obscene act)  in front of their classes, they  could do just about anything  they pleased without damaging their credibility or ability  to teach.  Further, we have a number  of people perpetrating the  myth that there are too many  teachers and fewer and fewer  students. On the other hand  the President of the University  of Victoria has opined publicly  that the next four years will  see a serious shortage of  teachers in B.C. and that in  fact 30% of new teachers  hired in the province had to  be imported from elsewhere.  The whole exercise goes to  prove one of the inescapable  facts in education; namely,  everyone is an expert. There  is not a single soul out there,  except professional educators,  who can't tell you what's  wrong with the school system  and what to do to make it  right. Our great good fortune  in having upwards of three  million education experts in  B.C. stems from the fact  that everybody spent some  time in school; clever of past  generations of Ministers of  Education to train all of these  experts.  The main target of the three  million or so educational  consultants in the province is  the teacher, the poor sucker  who has to sweat it out with  eighty or ninety different  kids every day. A typical  comment on what the perfect  teacher ought to be came from  a Fraser Valley School Trustee I spoke to last year. He  said, "Think of the most  memorable, good teacher  you had in school and that's  the kind of teacher I want to  see in every classroom in my  district".  I must have found it impossible to hide an hysterical  impulse to laugh as I conjured  up my most memorable, good  teacher because the trustee  turned a rather nasty shade of  red, made an obscene, and  Pleaae turn to page three  Church going  by Philip Larkin  Once I am sure there's nothing going on  I step inside, letting the door thud shut.  Another church: malting, seats, and stone,  And little books; sprawlings ol flowers, cut  For Sunday, brownish now; some brass and stuff  Up at the holy end; the small neat organ;  And a tense, musty, unignorable silence,  Brewed God knows how long. Hatless, I take off  My cycle-clips in awkward reverence,  Move forward, run my hand around the font.  From where I stand, the root looks almost new-  Cleaned or restored? Someone would know: I don't.  Mounting the lectern, I peruse a few  Hectoring large-scale verses, and pronounce  'Here endeth' much more loudly than I meant.  The echoes snigger briefly. Back at the door  I sign the book, donate an Irish sixpence,  Reflect the place was not worth stopping for.  Yet stop I did: in fact I often do,  And always end much at a loss like this,  Wondering what to look tor; wondering, too,  When churches fall completely out of use  What we shall turn them into, if we shall keep  A few cathedrals chronically on show,  Their parchment, plate and pyx in locked cases,  And let the rest rent-free to rain and sheep.  Shall we avoid them as unlucky places?  Or, after dark, will dubious women come  To make their children touch a particular stone;  Pick simples for a cancer; or In some  Advised night see walking a dead one?  Power of some sort or other will go on  In games, in riddles, seemingly at random;  But superstition, like belief, must die,  And what remains when disbelief has gone?  Grass, weedy pavement, brambles, buttress, sky,  A shape less recognisable each week,  A purpose more obscure, I wonder who  Will be the last, the very last, to seek  This place for what it was: one of the crew  That tap and Jot and know what rood-lofts were?  Some ruin-bibber, randy lor antique,  Or Christmas-addict, counting on a whiff  Of gown-and-bands and organ-pipes and myrrh ?

This proposal  seems to be off to a very  negative start judging from  last week's article in thc  Peninsula Times 'Recreation  Chairman fears referendum  failure' and perhaps it should  bc!  There are many reasons  why this referendum may  fail other than those mentioned by lhc Recreation  Chairman and these reasons  probably vary according to  where you live. We'd like  to support the Gibsons Pool  in Area F but not at the  expense of jeopardizing  present and future recreation.  If this referendum were to  pass wc would bc tying  ourselves down for twelve  years recrcationwise. All that  is offered the people of Area  F is the 28 acre Soames Hil  which we are presently paying  slightly more than Vt mill  for now, far less than this  referendum will be.  It is a known fact that  neither pools nor arenas can  break even on operating  costs which is why most  communities operate these  facilities through taxation.  For these facilities to be  considered a 'detriment to  the public' is ludicrous.  Pools and arenas can be  assets to a community for  several reasons and not thc  least to bc considered is  healthful recreation.  Several other questions  arise, such as, why do we  need another hall at Roberts  Creek when the local schools  arc being altered to allow joint  use of school facilities at a  present cost to the taxpayers  of approximately '/a mill?  Are libraries not being  supported by the Regional  District now? Are not some of  the other projects so narrow  Introducing:  Coastie  MacNews  in scope that they only meet  the needs of a very small  minority?  Why should we at one end  of thc peninsula support a  facility at thc other end and  vice versa? Curling rinks are  usually self-supporting and  our Gibsons Curling Club is  a prime example, so why  should we subsidize curling at  Sechelt? Why should an  extension be done at the  Sechelt Arena when this  facility  will   never  be   fully  utilized by the residents of  the Sunshine Coast due to  its location?  I, who have wholeheartedly  supported recreation in the  past, cannot support this  proposal. I urge the Regional  Board to stop Ihis referendum  now and save the taxpayers  time and money. Thc most  logical step forward in my  estimation would be for the  Regional Board to allow  'specific   area'   referendums  in which each area would  support the project of their  choice. Several areas could  combine forces on a larger  project, and with that in  mind perhaps it would make  sense to turn over the present  Sechelt arena to the curlers  and hold a 'specific area'  vote for an arena facility and  playing fields at Roberts  Creek where we wanted them  in the first place!  (Mrs.) Nancy L.Douglas,  Gibsons, B.C.  Artists and craftsmen  Where have all the artists  and craftsmen gone?  We arc busy; working on  projects for the purpose of  raising   funds   for   "Special  Slings and Arrows (cont'd)  what seemed like a very  rude, remark and stormed off  in what might most generously be described as a fit of  pique, to search out new  disciples for his expert council.  My most memorable, good  teacher was the most bizarre  and eccentric galoot you could  imagine. Hc was pedantic,  self important, patronizing,  intolerant, stubborn, sloppy,  egocentric, indolent, as well  as having an almost uncontrollable dislike for anyone  under the age of twenty. Hc  mumbled, stank horribly of  tobacco and brandy and was  subject to rather frightening  staring spells during which hc  would stop in the middle of  a sentence, stare blankly  into space for thirty or forty  seconds and then carry on  where he left off. Thc kids  said hc suffered from an old  war injury and had a steel  plate in his head. Weird as  he was, the man could teach.  I don't think hc gave much of  a damn about kids but he  could make his subject  magic.  My most memorable bad  teacher interestingly enough  was Walter Hardwick, the  current assistant to Education  Minister Pat McGeer. Smiling  Walt, bow tie and all was a  student teacher for a couple of  weeks when 1 was in grade  ten or eleven. Presumably  he learned from his experience and became a good  teacher but when I had him  he was awful.  The point of all this is that  throughout this school year,  as during most school years,  you're going to hear and read  a lot of comment and advice  from many different people.  None of what they will say  is new, none original, but  because of our fortunate  B.C. birthright, every single  thing they tell you will be  straight from thc mouth of  a genuine education expert.

"I figured vou musl have  heen flung in Ihe bucket or  something." I tell him the  whole unlikely story. "Well,  vou did a damn sight better  than me." he avers with  just enough envy Ui make me  feel good. All I got was aboul  sixty bueks down in lhal goddamn game."  My haphazard interlude  with Ruby proves lo be  strictly a one-lime thing.  When I eheek out the float,  later in the day, the seiner  is gone. So much for fly-by-  night romance. We don't  clear Alert Bay for two more  days but it's a downhill  route from Ihat point. Inevitably, we're chugging back  up Tribune Channel, sick,  sober but not all thai sorry.  The monotony has been  broken, if nothing else. Chris  and I sit out back, studying  thc country. Wc throb past  lonesome handlogging shows  where determined hermits  slug out a boom a year: past  other unknown floatcamps  rocking in the wilderness  wind.  It is late Monday afternoon  before wc arrive back at Carrington's. Ralph, Ben's scl-  dom-thcre partner is waiting  on the dock. "Jesus! I  thought you guys would have  been back yesterday. We  gotta gct that boom finished!"  "Ah, don't get your shorts  in a knot!" says Ben carelessly. "The guys needed a  break. Christ knows, you take  enough of them."  Ralph hasn't got much  ground to stand on there.  He's a stockily-built blonde  man in his thirties and he  looks mad enough to spit  nails but he turns on his  heel and stalks peevishly  away. At supper that night.  Ihe Iwo elderly ladies eye the  dishevelled lot of us with  disapproval. Even the usually  garrulous   Harry   is   silent.  We seem to have antagonized  the entire Carrington clan.  Next morning, we're on  ihe mountain again and all  is more-or-lcss back lo normal. Aboul a week later, we  have jusl moved Ihe donkey  lo a new location and are  chunking-out a selling for it,  using ihe light haulback and  a sideblock. Tate the choker-  man, hooks on lo a blown-  down alder dose to lhc butt.  Thc roots appear lo bc torn  free Inn a lew are still  holding. The tree snaps  upright and comes whistling  full-length Inwards Chris.  He iries to run clear bul his  feet are tangled in salal.  The alder slams him like a  giant switch across the  shoulders and he goes down  under il. The whole thing  happens so quickly. I stand  stunned for a second. Then  I gel Ihe hell over there.  Kosak has shut the machine  off and Ihcy are all heading  for the spot where Chris is  lying. I'm full of sick apprehension. The lice isn't  thai big but it hit him with  awful force. He's white as a  sheet and dead slill. LeClair takes his pulse with an  enormous hand. ".Iust seems  to be knocked-out," hc informs to my profound relief.  "Let's get this sonofabitchin'  thing off him."  Kosak's brought thc  stretcher from thc back of  the machine. We lift Chris  on to it as gently as possible.  "Way that bastard clobbered  him, hc could have something  busted," says big Ben. We'd  better carry him out real  easy."  Since nothing else can bc  found to secure him to thc  stretcher, wc are obliged to  use thc rope from LcClair's  climbing-belt. Four of us  grab a handle apiece and.  with Chris tied to thc litter,  we start off down the treacher-  ous hill. We stumble and  strain down thc steep skyline-road like men al some  ominous rile. Chris stays  silent as death. It's all a  bad dream. Finally, however,  he Ids out a groan and by  Ihe several centuries it takes  lo reach lhc bottom, hc has  more-or-lcss come around.  "How are you feeling?"  I ask anxiously.  "Like a goddamn house  fell on me," he mutters  dazedly,  The camp shuts down for  the resl of the day while  LeClair and I run Chris  down lo the Alert Bay hospital. It is dour autumn weather  wilh a mean wind roughening  Ihe channels. The doctor  can find nothing broken but  since Chris is very stiff and  bruised, he puts him on Compensation and sends him to  Vancouver for a more-extensive check-up. Without my  brother for company. Carrington's becomes a much lonelier place. Ben brings in his  youngest brother Mike to do  the rigging-slinging. Mike is  a strange cocky kid of about  seventeen who has been logging und drinking since he  was six. He's only been  south of the Euclataw Rapids  about twice in his life and  pesters mc constantly to tell  him about the City. 1 oblige  him with accounts of remembered parties and dances  and talk myself homesick.  I have a girl there called  Toots, who writes mc faithfully. I gaze at her photograph and sigh.  The year winds down towards winter. Chris has recuperated and drops me a  line from one misbegotten  inlet or another. The mornings arc sometimes frosty  and bitter now but it is cedar  country and easy to light  fires. 1 gct mine blazing  before    the   starting-whistle  each morning and hunker  down beside it to relay Mike's  falsetto yelps and Ben's  deeper-throated bellows.  The kid on thc chokers quits  and his place is taken by a  chunky, red-faced Irishman  called Paddy Moran. He's  only a year from the Old  Country, full of laughter and  wild stories about thc I.R.A.  Relations between Big  Ben and Ralph Carrington  grow progressively more  strained. Often at night, they  can he heard shouting and  arguing in Ihe boar's nest of  a house Ihcy share. Ralph is  complaining aboul low log-  counts and Ben is yelling right  back ihat if hc wants more  logs he'd better, by thc Lord  Jesus! pitch in and help  instead of whoring around thc  country in his speedboat all  the time. Our sympathies  arc with Ben. Granted, Ralph  is the money-partner but he  has certainly been abusing  the fact. In the several months  I've worked here, he has  been away at least half thc  time.  lt seems a minor miracle  that they don't come to blows  and perhaps they might have  but the snow steps in. A regular blizzard begins, late in'  November. By thc time it has  run its course, there arc  several inches on the hill  with the dark-clouded skies  promising more. Normally,  this wouldn't have been  enough to close the camp but  Ben is at the end of his  tether. It is as good an excuse  as any. In one final shouting-  match, they dissolve the partnership.  Suddenly, we are all unemployed and heading for Minstrel Island with our gear and  final paychequcs. Minstrel  is the closest regular steamship-stop. Il consists of a  hotel, a general-store, a  couple of cafes and not much  else. Wc converge on thc  beer-parlour. Abie Klein, the  owner, runs his premises  in a casual-enough manner  although he rumouredly  keeps a shotgun behind thc  1 YEAR TERM DEPOSITS  'Redeemable before Maturity at a reduced rate of interest.

In the fourth feature film  of thc week, F.I.S.T., Sylvester Stallone makes a very  strong bid lo retain his  considerable popularity with a  powerful film about thc union  movement in the trucking  industry. Canadian Norman  Jcwison produced and directed the story by Joe Esztcrhas  which Ihe latter and Stallone  prepared for the screen.  There are elements of thc  Jimmy Hoffa story and thc  Senate rackets investigation  plus enough truth in the  expose to make audiences  wonder how much is based  on fact. The episodic talc  chronicles Stallone's rise from  organizer to head of the  powerful union.  Beginning with Stallone,  whose presence tends to bc  overwhelming appropriately  enough, thc acting is all firsl  rate.

General Notes: During thc  next two weeks, thc Sun,  Moon, Mercury and Pluto  will bunch together in Libra  indicating a period dominated  by intense diplomatic negotiations in our varying affairs.  Discussions, debates and  arguments should bring major  changes in our daily routines.  The following prognostications point lo the areas where  new conditions may bc felt.  ARIES (March 21-April 19)  Accent is on emotional  discussions wilh close associates and loved ones. Expccl  lo be forced lo listen lo  others' points of view and  prepare lo make amends.  New conditions will be associated with alliances, partnerships, contracts, lawsuits or  marriages.  TAURUS (April 20-May 20)  Clear, honest communication is now required al place  of employment where coworkers arc feeling touchy.  Have lhc courtesy to explain  reasons for new methods or  techniques before resuming  operations. Meanwhile, those  suffering from extended  illness should now seek a  second medical opinion.  GEMINI (May 21-Junc 21)  Social life, pleasures,  amusements, love affairs or  children arc subjects for  heated debates or arguments.  Your having loo much of a  good time now demands full  explanations. Resist fresh  urge lo gamble, speculate  or take risks. Those unattached face romantic opportunities.  CANCER (June 22-July 22)  Prepare for major changes  on the domestic scene.  Family members may have lo  abandon personal ��� day-today routines following lengthy  discussions. Rental or real  estate transactions may have  to be completed whether  you're ready or nol.  LEO (July23-Aug.22)  Your mind is now super  sharp, quick, alert and ready  to argue any controversial  topic. Bc warned that you  may soon regret much of whai  you say. Local visits and  short journeys may bring  unexpected arguments.  It's no time lo discuss emotional matters with relatives  or neighbours.  VIRGO (Aug.23-Scpt.22)  Accent is on intense discussions regarding personal  financial situation and cash  (low. Those living beyond  Iheir means receive nasty  news concerning Iheir monetary irresponsibility. Advice  is to seek expert guidance.  Money is often thc rool of all  evil.  LIBRA (Scpl.23-Ocl.23)  Appearance. personality  and mental outlook are now  due for major changes.  Speaking your mind will  convince others of fresh attitude   and   new    approach.  Those born around October 8  must expect complete change  of lifestyle during the next  twelvemonths.  SCORPIO (Oct.24-Nov.22)  Spotlight on secret activities and very confidential  communications. Guard  carefully private plans and  documents. Many will seek  seclusion lo contemplate  past mistakes and arrange  means of escape. Hospitals,  prisons, hideaways, thc sick  and the lonely come under  focus.  SAGITTARIUS (Nov.23-  Dcc.21)  Discussions and decisions  will favour abandoning long-  range plans and point to more  practical ventures. Those  involved in clubs, societies  or group activities must  expect changes in internal  power structures. Meanwhile,  refuse lo argue with friends  and acquaintances who are  now feeling dogmatic and  uncooperative.  CAPRICORN (Dec.22-Jan.19)  Heated arguments may bc  linked lo sudden upheavals  in your reputation, position  or public standing. Career  or job prospects may soon  require vital decisions. The  dictatorial attitudes of those in  authority are the main sources  of any upcoming anxieties.  AQUARIUS (Jan.20-Feb. 18)  Accent is on major upheavals in far away places. Longdistance messages and phone  calls may inform you of significant events affecting close  family and old friends.  Meanwhile, many of you arc  ready for further changes in  religious, philosophical or  general outlook on life.  PISCES (Feb. 19-Mar.20)  Intense discussions are  linked lo how badly other  people have handled their  recent financial affairs.  By all means offer a shoulde'r  to cry on but say goodbye  to hasty cash loans. Refuse to  be involved with any underhanded money making  schemes or risky speculation.

The same  statement may bc applied to^  thc Arthurian legends, since  both sets of legends are inextricably intertwined. Most  of us have a nodding acquaintance with the tales of King  Arthur and the Knights of the  Round Table, either through  Alfred Lord Tennyson's  Idylls of thc King, Thomas  Malory's Mortc d'Arthur, or  one of the hundreds of simplified versions, children's  editions, und movies, even a  musical (Camelot), that have  been derived from them.  Briefly: according to the  legends, when the Romans  had withdrawn their legions  from Britain to defend thc  core of their shrinking empire,  thc native Britons, divided  into petty kingdoms and lorn  by internal strife, were unable to defend themselves  against thc tide of migratory  invaders from the continent;  the barbaric pagan Anglo-  taxons. At their hour of  greatest need, Arthur, a  young man of mysterious  birth, who had been under  thc tutelage of thc magician  Merlin, came forward to fulfill thc prophecy thai whoever  could draw a sword from a  stone or anvil in which it had  been immovably embedded  would unite and rule all  Britain. Hailed as King of  Britain Arthur later acquired  another sword, Excalibur,  from the Lady-spirit of the  Lake. Arthur gathered to  himself, at his castle Camelot,  thc finest knights of the land  to form the brotherhood of the  Round Table. The Knights  swore allegiance to Arthur and  to a strict code of Christian  ethics. They undertook many  quests, making the land safe  from marauding beasts and  renegade knights. His finest  knights undertook the greatest  quest of all: The Quest of thc  Holy Grail. But in thc end  evil prevailed; with his finest  knights gone in search of the  Grail, Arthur's bravest and  most trusted knight. Lancelot,  began an adulterous affair  with Guinevere the Queen.  Tristan, another of the  knights, carried on similarly  with Vseult, wife of thc Cornish King Mark. Arthur declares war on Lancelot, Guinevere seeks sanctuary at  a monastery and eventually  takes Holy Orders. Thc  ascetic Merlin succumbs to  the fatal charms of the enchantress Vivien, an agent of  King Mark. Weakened from  within by thc treachery  of Arthur's wicked cousin  Modrcd and King Mark,  Arthur's kingdom is destroyed  at the battle of Mount Badon  where Arthur himself is mortally wounded. Hc is carried to  a chapel by Sir Bediverc  who reluctantly casts Excalibur back into the lake from  which it came. Arthur doesn't  exactly die but is borne away  in a swan-bout crowed by  fairy princesses to the enchanted Isle of Avalon where,  he prophesizes, his wounds  will be healed and hc will  rest until the Kingdom of  Britain needs him again, at  which time he will return.  Hc is therefore called "The  Once and Future King",  ���the title of T.H.White's novel  on the subject, and thc sim  ilarity to Christ is far from  accidental.  Glastonbury, located in  Somerset, in thc heart of  the mythical kingdom of  Arthur, has its own set of  legends, not the least of which  was its claim to have been  founded in 37 A.D. by Joseph  of Arimathea escaping the  persecution of thc Romans.  Joseph is supposed to have  brought with him the Holy  Grail, thc chalice from which  Christ drank and performed  communion at the Last  Supper. Glastonbury has  many other legends, thc  Christmas-flowering hawthorn that grew from thc staff  of Joseph, and visits by such  lights of Celtic Christianity as  St. Patrick, St. Columba and  St. Bridget, but it was the  story of the Grail which captured lhc imaginations of  people from lhal time to this,  though the Grail obsession  hit its high-water mark in thc  Mediaeval period when Grail  Quests and Arthurian Romance became a highly refined art form, fhe Grail is  not all that connects Arthur  to Glastonbury; Glastonbury  is said to bc thc monastery  where Guinevere took refuge  and there was a secret tradition thai Glastonbury is itself  thc Isle of Avalon, the burial  place of King Arthur.  Grail legends appear all  over Northern Europe, but  they are strongest and appear  to have originated in thc  Celtic strongholds of Wales,  Cornwall and Brittany. Despite its strongly religious  overtones and even the strong  evidence that it functioned  as a kind of mystery-cult of  thc Virgin Mary, the "Grail-  Cult" was much too esoteric  to have ever found favour with  thc Roman Catholic church.  It was peculiar to Celtic Christianity which, when the  Romans retreated, developed  along independent and  frequently eccentric lines and  returned to the Catholic  fold with considerable reluctance. King Arthur's Avalon  contains a fascinating capsule  history of this unorthodox  Catholicism whose main  English Shrine was at Glastonbury.  Anthropologists have  had a field day with the legends of the Holy Grail and,  for that matter, with the legends of Arthur. The Grail  myths, they say, arc survivals  of a pagan mystery-fertility  cult, and the Arthurian  legends degenerate talcs of  thc birth, death, and resurrection of a Celtic god-hero.  Ashe reviews their speculations with an enquiring open  mind; in the case of the Grail,  the historical evidence for the  Joseph of Arimathea story is  nil. Thc Grail remains as  elusive an object as it was to  thc questing knights. Arthur  too, when divested of the  trappings of mediaeval  chivalry in which thc poets of  thc Middle Ages dressed  him, seems to fade to a  spectre, yet hc retains some  intangible, maddeningly  "historical" quality that has  saved him from the obscurity  shared by the other mythical  Celtic gods and heroes.  Arthur, if he existed, lived  in thc darkest shadow of thc  Dark Ages, jusl beyond thc  pale of history. Thc only  contemporary historian, thc  monk Gildas, docs not mention Arthur, but Arthur and  the Church were never on thc  best of terms and Gildas'  own reliability may bc questioned since hc retired to  Brittany to write his "Complaining  Book",  chiefly  de  voted to slandering his  countrymen. The first historian to speak of Arthur as the  "dux bcllorum", thc war-  chief of the Celts, is Nennius,  writing circa 800 A.D., much  too, late to be of historical  value, except that the situation is qualified by thc victorious Saxons' understandable reluctance to promote  histories of Celtic heroes.  Thc stories survived in Wales  and Cornwall, the last bastions of the Celts in southern  Britain.  Ironically, just as anthropology has buried thc ghost of  Arthur, modern archaeology  has found good cause to  resurrect him. For some time  excavations have been underway at an ancient hill-fort  called Cadbury Castle, which,  il is believed, may well bc thc  site of fabled Camelot. In  the course of his book, Ashe  assembles evidence from all  sources in an attempt to  form a portrait of Arthur.  The picture that emerges is  all the more compelling  for being at odds with the  legend. Arthur, like his  predecessor, Ambrosius  Aurclianus, was probably a  Romanized Celt, one of thc  few who preserved thc knowledge of Roman fortifications  and tactics. particularly  Ihe use of lightly armoured  cavalry, which would bc  quite effective against thc  stand-and-batter style of the  Saxon foot-soldiers. Though  hc might save thc day for a  little while, thc "dux bcllorum" had no political power  to establish a stable self-  defending society. Hc was not  a king and once the fighting  was over he was retired.  Whether he died in battle or  in bed, Arthur's success in  winning a little breathing-  space for a doomed people  has brought him an irrepressible and imperishable glory.  Glastonbury too suffered  thc ravages of time. Pillaged  by various monarchs jealous  of its riches or fearful of  its power as a symbol of  Celtic Catholicism in the heart  of a Protestant country, it  has been allowed to lay in  ruins for long periods, but  nothing could exorcise the  irrcsistablc magic of the  place. Even now crowds  gather at Midsummer to experience the mystery of thc  Isle of Avalon, the final  resting place, in spirit if not  in body, of Arthur, King of  Britain. King Arthur's Avalon  is available in paperback  from Fontana Books and at  $2.25 it's worth every penny.  PRICE CUTTERS  Appliances  Cabinets  Carpets  Stereo  T.V.

Hydro to  stop using sprays and other  forms of defoliants on the  right-of-way which extends  the length of the area from  Port Mellon to Egmont and  also up to Clowhom Lake  generating station.  Because of B.C.Hydro's  policy of spreading the work  done on the powerlines in  keeping the undergrowth  under control, a different  area is involved every year.  Last year it was Port Mellon,  this year it is Pender Harbour,  and next year who knows  where, but you can guarantee  that there is going to bc  another fight somewhere.  The main reason why all  areas protest B.C. Hydro's  actions is that all the drinking  water used on this coast has  to cross the right-of-way  and is therefore subject to  contamination by the herbicides used to control thc  underbrush. As none of these  herbicides, Tordon 101,  2,4,5-T, 2,4-D or Tordon  10K have been proven to be  harmless and perfectly safe  to use, the people maintain  that they should not be used  until there is no shadow of  doubt as to their safety.  B.C. Hydro and Dow Chemicals, the main supplier of  these herbicides, try to convince us that if used in thc  correct way, there is no  danger what so ever of the  water supplies becoming  contaminated but who is to  say that correct methods  have been used?  Last year we had a case in  the Port Mellon area where a  loaded tanker broke down on  the right-of-way. In order to  gct the vehicle out and back  to Vancouver on the ferry,  the load of herbicide was  dumped in an area limited by  the distance that the spray  hoses would reach. A few  weeks after thc incident, an  official of Environment  Canada came along and investigated the mishap and  tested the water and reportedly found no trace of contaminants in the water. This  incident would never have  been reported and only got  to the notice of B.C. Hydro  through a meeting held at thc  Gibsons Wildlife Club.  One has only to read the  warnings which are posted on  every container of these herbicides to make one wonder  just how safe these things are.  Here is an example: "Keep  out of reach of children,  Harmful if swallowed, Causes  irritation of eyes and skin,  Avoid contact with skin, eyes  and clothing, Do not contaminate   any   body   of  water,  Specializing  in  Ladies & Mens  Cuts  & Styling  , Colouring  ��� Blow Drying  All Types of Perms  *) Hair Care tor the entire family.  Quality Redken, Jhirmack & Vidal Sassoon Products  tj��,cA<eU yheaa/u craw  ���?i  (Open Tuesday to Saturday)    AAR-9A1A    Cowrie St.  etc., etc., etc." Under limitations heading, the following appears: "Do not make  applications to water, along  stream banks, or on inner  sides of ditch banks, or to  wet lands feeding into possible water sources.'' That last  part of the sentence is very  relevant on the Sunshine  Coast. A great deal of the  Hydro right-of-way is a  collecting area for water  which eventually finds its  way into the creeks and because of this one would  be very applicable to the  Pender Harbour area and  also to Port Mellon and that  area between Langdale Creek  and Port Mellon.  Ninety pcr-ccnt and perhaps more of thc population  living on the coast, live below  the powerline. Many of them  still obtain their water from  wells and these are also fed,  via the water table, from  these wet lands. B.C. Hydro  assures us that the application of the herbicide is controlled very rigidly but there  have been very many cases  where the applicator has  overrun the guide lines which  theoretically are supposed to  stay away from creeks a distance of ten metres.  As a responsible Wild Life  Club we are not only concerned for the people's  welfare. We are also worried  about what effect all these  herbicides are having on the  fish in the creeks and also  the wildlife which lives in  close proximity to the Hydro  line.  Many of the creeks support  healthy fish populations and  with work being done by  different people and organizations under the guidance  of the Federal Salmon Enhancement Programme, these  populations are going to  increase. In Pender Harbour  there is a significant sockeye  salmon run in Sakinaw and  Ruby Lakes and the creeks  running into them. B.C.  Hydro has plans to install  a new transmission line running down the greater part of  the Sechelt Peninsula to  feed electricity to Vancouver  Island. This will involve a  right-of-way between 400'  and 600' wide and Hydro has  stated that it will be necessary to spray herbicides  to control the brush. The line  is to cross Sakinaw Lake and  one can only speculate on the  results of ail these chemicals  sprayed on the line, running  into the lake. The results  could be disastrous as far  as the fish are concerned.  Hydro, in its wisdom, ignores  all these possible detrimental  effects and rides roughshod  over the protests of the population.  The Sunshine Coat was  declared a high unemployment area some time ago and  a figure of 16% has been  mentioned. On many occasions the idea of employing  people to clear the right-of-  way has been suggested  but every time Hydro has  made excuses of one sort or  another for not doing this.  One of the reasons stated  is that it will cost too much.  They did not produce some  figures that were supposed to  prove that but nobody could  understand them and the  environmental costs of damage caused by their insistancc  on spraying were never even  considered.  Apart from taking a number  of people off the welfare or  unemployment role, and you  have to pay for that anyway,  IMWW A0T# 6*0V  BBB-7199  We handle  I.C.B.C. claims.  J  Gibsons      3  7******1  it would help improve B.C.  Hydro's battered image in  this community greatly and  would be good for public  relations.  Recently there was a case  of a group of juveniles throwing what they thought was  fish food, into Clowholm  Lake at the head of Salmon  Inlet. The pellets turned out  to be Tordon 10K, a toxic  substance used to defoliate  or control brush. This is an  example of extreme carelessness and negligence on the  part of Hydro, in leaving these  chemicals in a place easily  accessible to the public.  According to what we read  in the papers it seems the  stuff had been stored for at1  least seven years and forgotten about. How can a public  servant call itself responsible  when it-allows things like this  to happen?  A few years ago Hydro  cleared and seeded with  grass a stretch of the right-  of-way in the vicinity of  Roberts Creek. They then  leased this off to people to  graze their horses on and it  did an excellent job all round.  Admitted this cannot be done  over the entire length of the  line due to the nature of the  terraine but there must be  many more places where it  would be practical. Last year  a contractor in Pender Harbour offered to machine and  hand clear the right-of-way  ffom Port Mellon to Pender  Harbour for a price well below  anything that Hydro had been  offered before. The only  stipulation was that he got  thc whole contract and only  that way could he make it  worth while. He was turned  down.  Those are just two examples  of what could be done but it  appears that if Hydro gives  way to public protest here on  this coast, they will have set a  precedent which they will  find it very hard to ignore  when it comes to dealing with  people in other areas. As was  stated at the beginning of this  brief in regard to the water  used by the people, etc., having to cross the right-of-way,  it could be that this situation  is unique in B.C. and if so  then Hydro does not have to  worry about precedents.  The circumstances and reasons for not spraying here are  applicable to this area only  and do not apply to the rest  of the Province.  In conclusion, as an illustration as to how united the  people are on this issue, a  couple of examples of what  has been done by the people  and by elected representatives  of the Sunshine Coast to try  and convince B.C. Hydro of  the opposition of the populace  to their actions might be  in order.  Earlier this year the students of Elphinstone High  School in Gibsons held a  public forum to discuss the  pros and cons of spraying the  right-of-way with defoliants.  Both sides of the case were  presented in what seemed to  be a fair and well balanced  programme. Government  representatives from the  Pesticide Control Branch,  Federal and Provincial  Government M.L.A.s and  M.P.s were present, together  with experts in the field of  toxicology and herbicides.  All parties were given equal  time to state their cases and  the public were able to question these people. The  students did an excellent  job of presenting both sides  of the case and, in getting  involved themselves, learned  a great deal about the subject in hand and about the  people involved. In a vote  held at the conclusion of the  Forum, 98% of those present  opposed the use of herbicides  by B.C. Hydro. The second  illustration occurred just  recently when the Regional  Board, who are united in their  opposition to the use of  herbicides on the powerline,  appealed and unfortunately  lost the decision of B.C.  Hydro to spray in the Pender  Harbour area this year.  According to the lawyers  representing them, they had  a very strong case but it was  completely overruled by  the Appeal Board and in fact  the spraying is now in the  process of being put into  practice.  Incidentally the use of these  chemicals, Tordon 10K,  at this time of the year goes  against all recommendations  of Dow Chemical, the manufacturers of this herbicide,  but this is just one more  example of the "I know best  what is good for you" attitude  of   your    public    servants, Coast News.

The  Twilight Theatre's regular  programme is designed to  prescnl a great variety of  cinematic entertainment  catering lo many different  lasles. Obviously, there arc  few films which have universal appeal, and the object  then becomes to present  films which have as wide an  appeal as possible.  A business musl endeavour  lo bc economically sound, anil  the presentation of film entertainment is a haphazard  type of operation. It is particularly so where the catchment  population is small. In such  situations, it is flirting wilh  financial disaster to present  films for minority audiences,  and films in languages other  than English arc usually a  case in point. So, in a different way, arc re-runs,  particularly if they have been  on television, although reruns of some fairly current  films or revivals can sometimes be commercially viable.  lt is the object of the  Kwahtahmoss Film Society to  cater for the minority interests, lt should be borne in  mind, however, that a number  of the films that will be shown  in Ihe Film Society's programme first appeared in  ihe Twilight Theatre's regular  programme. Many good films  continue to appear in the  regular programme, and I  am sure that most of thc Film  Society audience will be  watching out for thc interesting offerings therein.  Although rock 'n roll is  hardly mv venue, 1 am looking  forward to The Buddy Holly  Story which is scheduled to  play at the Twilight Theatre,  October 4���7. Wednesday  through Saturday.  I heard a panel programme  on C.B.C. radio part of which  Involved a discussion of that  film, I doubt that any of the  panelists even knew who  Buddy Holly was before the  film, but all were most favourably impressed with the film  and- considered Gary Busie,  who plays the early rock  idol (Holly died in 1956 in  a plane crash), a major new  talent. In a different way, I  am looking forward to seeing  Walt Disney's cartoon feature  The Jungle Book which plays  with The Sign of Zorro on  September 28, 29, 30, Thursday through Saturday with a  matinee performance scheduled for Saturday, September  30 at 2 p.m.  Among thc films I have  seen fairly recently at the  Twilight Theatre have been  Thank God it's Friday, An  Unmarried Woman and The  Swarm. The less said about  the latter, the better.  An Unmarried Woman  seems to have been quite  a highly acclaimed film. It  was directed by Paul Mazurski  whose previous films include  Harry and Tonto (1974) and  Next Stop Greenwich Village  (1976). Mazursky is noted for  thc shrewdness of his casting,  and the film presents splendid  performances particularly  from Jill Clayburgh playing  the part of a woman with a  fifteen year old daughter  who suddenly and unexpectedly finds herself without a  husband when he leaves her  for a younger woman. The  film, set in New York's Manhattan, depicts with considerable sensitivity the woman's  struggle to adjust herself  to her radical1' changed  circumstances.  In the final third of so of  the film, Alan Bates, as one  would expect, gives a wonderful performance as an artist  who loves her. Ian Corrance,  however, can attest to the  fact that a microphone intruded into the top of the  frame in one of the shots  involving the woman at the  artist's apartment. He noticed  it first. It surprises me that  this was not caught when the  film was edited.  Players present comedy  1 found Thank God it's  Friday a lively and unpretentious little film with several  fine characterizations and a  good supply of zany humour.  That's entertainment, as the  motion picture title reads ���  twice.  This article is written before  the Film Society's first  screening (since 1976) at the  Twilight Theatre. I will report  on that in next week's newspaper. I would like to conclude  this week's article by thanking  Eric Zazberg, Keith Wallace  and Jeanette Gordon for their  efforts with the Film Society  during its operation in 1976.  My thanks also to the management of the Twilight Theatre  886-7241..,.

I  appreciate a skillfully  built precision machine and  feel a special kinship to those  who feel likewise. Eric was  one of these people. His bike  was always clean and well  maintained. Unlike so many  riders who accept all the credit  for a good ride and blame Ihe  bike for a bad one, he considered the bike as part of a  team and regarded its condition as important to a successful ride as his own good  health.

Saturday 22nd, Hackett Park,  2:00 p.m.  Renegades vs Kalhsa:  In their third game of the  season the Renegades were  tied by Kalhsa in a score of  2���2. in the first half of the  game, the Renegades had  control of the offensive.  First goal was scored fifteen  minutes into the game by  Renegade Stewart Craigan  with a fast angle shot thirty  yards out. This seemed to  bring out a little more competitive spirit from Kalhsa,  who retaliated ten minutes  later by scoring a goal of their  own.  Thc second half was even  more vigorously played by  both clubs. The Renegades  were left open in the middle  by Kalhsa's great footwork  in centre field which interfered somewhat with the  Renegades' usual defence  manoeuvres.  Regardless of these weaknesses the Renegades'  offensive lines pulled through  with an unassisted goal by  Vern Joe twenty minutes into  the second half. At that point,  Kalhsa made another come  back goal which tied up the  game.  In the last remaining  ten minutes of the game  Kalhsa shifted its strength  exclusively to defence in order  to deal with the Renegades'  offensive surge to win the  game.

Instruction will be offered on  Saturday afternoon before the  'spiel for those who haven't  been bitten by the curling bug  and old-timers are invited to  come out to limber up.  Skips are reminded of thc  important meeting on October  3 to discuss new rules and  club rules. It is important  that skips attend or'have their  thirds represent them.

Whether you  are six years old or sixteen  years old, you are not too  old to join the association.  This year, we are sure we  will have just the league for  you, as a beginner, to join in  and have a bail and learn  our great game of hockey.  As   you   know,   we   are  expecting to try a new format  of two levels of hockey   a house level in each division  as well as a rep team for those  players who perhaps have  advanced a little quicker in  their developmental skills.  It Is not Important if you  have not played previously!  Equipment: For your information, it is mandatory to  equip your child with a face  protector, as well as pants,  shinguards, cup, elbow pads  and gloves. Sweaters will  be provided by the association.  Registration: Registration  began this past weekend at  Gibsons and Pender Harbour  COMMERCIAL  HOCKEY LEAGUE  GENERAL MEETING  THURS., SEPT. 28,  7:30 p.m.  SECHELT  ARENA  REGISTRATION  and will continue this weekend  at the Sechelt Elementary  Gym, Saturday, September  30, beginning at 10:00 a.m.  and going to 4:00 p.m. Also,  we will hold another final  registration at the Gibsons  Mall from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00  p.m. this same Saturday.  Don't forget the equipment  swap at Sechelt, bring your  old gear, price it reasonably,  and hopefully trade for your  new equipment.  Pacific Coast Amateur Hockey  Association: We have been  in touch with the PCAHA  on the Lower Mainland and  the early indication is that  our association may become  an associate member. This  would mean we would be able  to play games with clubs from  Burnaby W.C., Hollyburn,  West Vancouver, North  Shore, Surrey, just to name a  few, at all levels. We will  attempt to get our house  teams as well as our rep  teams home and away exhibitions with these other communities on a once or twice  monthly basis. This is what  thc kids like, and I think  thc parents really enjoy seeing how our own teams stack  up against others.  Conflicts: Hopefully our  scheduling committee will  be able to come up with ice  time which will not conflict  with other activities. We have  already been in touch with  the Sechelt Minor Soccer  people, and we will do our  utmost to schedule the games  around these other designated times. We don't want  the kids to miss hockey,  because   they   are   playing  soccer believe   me   when  I say they can play both  sports, and be better for it  too.  Sponsors: Again, we are looking  for  willing  persons  or  businesses to build our association   into   a   strong   one.  With your assistance, games  with Lower Mainland teams  will be a reality.

Seaside Rentals  685-2848 Local wrist wrestlers Craig Norris, Harry Kammerle, Pierre Berdahl, and Jim  Peers distinguished themselves in competition recently in Vancouver. See reports  this page.  Wristwrestling victories moving  By Paul Peter (Pcpi) Klachan  At the International Arm-  wrestling Invitational held at  the Skyline Motor Inn in Richmond September 16, Sunshine  Coast members took it home...  every division they entered,  they brought home a champion. Pans from the 'Coast'  who were there will tell you.  lt started with the featherweights. Pierre Berdahl was  the featherweight champion.  Pierre ruled the roost over  eighteen of the best featherweights in the large area  represented. He defeated  George Hicks, thc present  Canadian Featherweight  champion in a short match  early  in  the evening.  Pierre celebrated after his  final match by leaping on  top of the competition table  and dancing a jig on it.  Lightweight champion  Craig Norris was a true  'Champion'. His first match  with B.C. champion Andy  Elliot, Norris plunked  him down before the referees  could realize it. Norris'  second match was a special  event. Borden Letawsky from  Edmonton,Alberta is the National Sit Down and Stand Up  Lightweight champion and has  been for more than two  years. His titles and trophies  fill a room in his Edmonton  home. Norris and Letawsky  were called to the match, a  special referee was declared to  assist this match, one from  Alberta, one from British  Columbia. On the word.  "Go..." Letawsky whipped  Norris' arm back two inches,  from there Norris dug in.  Il looked like he had given Ihe  edge to Letawsky so there  would be no question of his  abilities. Slowly hc brought  Letawsky back and pinned his  arm in an awesome display  of  courage   and   technique.  Craig went on to the finals  after five more matches.  Just before the final event  in thc double elimination  tournament against Andy  Elliot, Norris was squatting  down watching the featherweight final; hc stood up in  a hurry, seemed to faint for  a moment. Unsteady on his  feet he headed for some  fresh air. Elliot, sensing  Norris had a problem wanted  the match to proceed right  away. He called for a default,  knowing well enough a competitor has a reasonable  length of time to come to  the table. Norris heard the  word default, returned to  lhc table still unsteady on  his feel, hardly able to focus  his eyes on the situation, but  said hc was ready. Elliot  pinned his arm, having  displayed thc only tense  attitude of the evening, for  which he could have been  faulted by the refcrree.  Norris went outside with  brother Brad Norris for some  air, came back in ten minutes  for thc second final match,  each competitor having one  loss. Norris plunked Elliot  down in the usual manner,  took two steps and passed out  into brother Brad's arms.  Brad Norris carried out the  younger brother, dancing and  telling him..."you're the  Champion...".  Mr. Tony Senger, from Edmonton, Alberta, the undisputed best middleweight in  Canada, was the middleweight Champion.  In thc heavyweights,  250 pound Jimmy Peers  Junior downed them all.  He first downed a 275 pound  Alberta fireman, an Alberta  heavyweight champion. His  second match was against  Heinz Hucssman, the 1974  Cartings World Champion.  Hucssman looked in tremendous shape at 6 feet seven  inches, 290 pounds, with nine  years experience ��� obviously  thc heavy favourite. Huess-  man had to bc asked by the  referee repeatedly not to  crowd thc tabic for the advantage. But when the  "Go..." came. Jimmy Peers  Junior Hashed Huessman's  arm down so fast the Alberta  contingent stood up and  stared. They hadn't seen that  speed except from men  like present-reigning heavyweight champion Virgil  Arciaro from California.  Jimmy was ecstatic. A little  guy rushed out of the crowd  and leaped on to Peers,  "I've been waiting for years  for someone to do that to  Heinz Hucssman..."  Jimmy went on to win three  ���foun  CLASS*  DOGWOOD  cm  weareopen:   Mon.���Fri.  6a.m.���9 p.m.  Weekends 7a.m.���4p.m.  CLEAN IT NOW!

Heinz Huessman had to be  beaten one more time. Heinz  wanted an independent  referee. Borden Letawsky,  said to be one of the most  referees anywhere and John  Lcmpman, handled the match.  Jimmy Peers Junior breathed  in several boxcars of air,  prepared his senses and waited for Heinz Huessman.  The word, "Go..." couldn't  be heard for the noise of the  crowd   except   by   the   two  heavyweights.  Then as fast as before.  Jimmy Peers Junior had defeated the heavily favoured  man. He jumped into his  dad's waiting arms. J.P.  Senior whirled his son around  like a toy. If there was a dry  eye around I didn't see it.  I went out for a moment's  quiet to dry my face. It had  been a night of victories in  the tournament sport of  armwrestling...Peers, Norris,  Berdahl...Harry Kammerle  finished third in lightweights,  ahead of nineteen other  lightweights...all of them winners, three of them champions. Gibsons and the  Sunshine Coast went home.  James Peers Junior will  train and pick his way to the  top heavyweights in the world  class. Norris is on his way to  Petaluma to the World Wrist-  wrestling Championships  on October 8 to plunk down  Clay Rosencrans. Berdahl  is considering the next tournament which ever one is first,  to do his jig on top of that  table. They know where Gibsons and the Sunshine Coast  arc today in armwrestling,  wristwrestling. Now we can  support our champions...  it's very possible to bring a  world championship home to  'the Coast' with planning,  training and support.  mm\taa\     REAL ESTATE  ;  INSURANCE  FLOROS      ACENCIES LTD  OT  1589 Marine Drive Gibsons,  OFFICE: 886-2248  RON McSAVANEY  AGENT  885-3339  JOHN BLACK  886-7316  VARIETY FOODS  SNACK BAR & DELI  .;\f��?f1"/a..r<  mm  .."XAVe*"  886-2936  l SNACKS IN THE SUN  HEALTH FOOD  ST.BARTHOLOMEW'S ANGLICAN CHURCH  Harvest Thanksgiving Dinner, October 1, 1978, 5:30p.m, At Church  Hall, Hwy 101. $3.50 adults; $1.50 children under twelve years.

The first thing I noticed  when 1 arrived were literally  thousands of starlings, every  T.V. antenna and wiry contraption in the city centre  was coated with them ��� this  was not thc pleasant surprise;  it's just another case of man's  meddling with the natural  balance.  I stayed on Ihe ground floor  of an apartment building in  a place called the Gorge, in  the middle of the City. One  evening I was spending my  time productively lying on the  floor watching the tely. when  I noticed a movement on the  balcony.

I didn't want to scare it  away so I stayed still. Within  a couple of minutes it was  joined by another and another,  until there were four of them  nosing around on the porch,  They didn't seem to be scared  by my bearded face staring  at them from a few inches  away, so I went into the  kitchen and brought back a  few slices of bread, opened  the door a few inches and  threw oul some chunks. The  bread was soon gone and they  were asking for more. When  it got to the stage where I  was endangering my supply  of morning toast 1 called it  quits. They stayed around for  quite a while longer, and we  eventually got a game going.  1 would press my nose up  against the glass and one of  them would come over and do  the same on the other side.  We would move along the  glass nose to nose then sit  and stare at each other for  a while and then it'd be off to  make sure that nothing edible  had been missed. It was one  of the highlights of my visit  and completely unexpected.  Taco bout wild:  Although it has nothing to  do with the great outdoors,  I must mention the wildest  tacos in Victoria...well actually it's just inside Saanich. On  the corner of Cloverdale and  Quadra, there's a little place  called the Fourway Fish and  Chips and Tacos. The tacos  are only excelled by the personage of Duffy behind the  counter. At no time is the  joke cracking and general  craziness allowed to be  replaced by the more staid  and orthodox methods of  parting a customer from his  money in exchange for nourishment. A word of warning;  unless you have spent most of  your time in Mexico and just  came up here for a holiday,  start on the medium or hot  tacos, and then when you have  proved your palate is up to  it, move on to the damn hot.  Beats:  It's been a heck of a year  for bears and humans bumping into each other, and it's  still going on. Last week in  around Gibsons at least six  were seen; one was actually  blamed for the death of a goat  and the police had to be called  in to chase it off. From talking  with a lady from Pender, a  friend of hers who is single  with four children is worried  by the presence of one of them  furry creatures around her  property. They may look  nice and cuddly but they can  be a nuisance when they get  over their fear of human  habitation.  Coyotes:  It's been known that there  are coyotes somewhere up  behind Elphinstone Mountain or thereabouts, but it's  a wee bit uncommon to hear  about them down around Roberts Creek. About three weeks  ago at least one was spotted  up around a friend's property  behind the Beachcomber  Inn. Fearing for his chickens,  he put the run on it. So far  it hasn't come back, so possibly it felt that the big city  was not for it.  Sparrow Hawks (Kestrel):  I guess it must have been  last Tuesday I was in Gibsons,  and even though still on holiday, ended up in the office  chewing the fat for a few  minutes.  While there a female sparrow hawk flew down and  landed on a fence post about  twenty feet from the window.  Suddenly a flock of crows  came swooping down and  began to harrass it; being  smaller than thc crows, the  poor bird didn't stand a  chance, so it tried to make  good its escape. Manuane  went running out to thc rescue and found it lying on its  back in front of thc Credit  Union. When she tried to  pick it up, it stirred itself  and flew off into a thick  clump of trees down by thc  beach where 1 hope it found  safety.  The hawks that 1 saw on  the telephone wires on Field  Road were still around on  Friday. It's worthwhile going  up for a look at them. They're  beautiful.  Sea Lion:  Gwen Varcoe in Roberts  Ceek gave me a call on Friday morning. She had spotted  what looked like a sea lion  swimming around right by  the shore in front of her  place. The only thing was that  it was far too lightly coloured.  I was in the area that afternoon so I dropped down for a  visit. Naturally there was  nothing about, but I did meet  one of her neighbours who  informed me that, about ten  years ago, there had been an  albino sea lion in the area.  It would be interesting if  this was another,  Come cry with me   (0k  By Ann Napier  Write Box 3, c/o Coast News  Dear Ann:  If you think the younger  generation has problems, you  should reach your seventies  with an oversexed partner.

Retired  Dear Retired:  We are all so different,  1 am surprised when people  make it over a few years.  I guess either he has to slow  up, or you have to speed up.  Start jogging a few feet at a  time and in a few weeks you  can get away from him.  You could read provocative  books. Have your Doctor  give you a tonic. I think it is  preferable to speed you up as  sex is so good for the body and  mind. They find people with  active sex lives are more  cheerful and healthy. When  sex extends into the later  years, people have fewer  aches and pains so consider  the benefits, then get involved.  Dear Ann:  I have been doubting a  faamndship, because when I  bought something from a  friend she charged more than  she payed for it. Do you  think I am being unfair?  I did not find out until after  I bought said object, that she  had bought it and another  valuable object for the same  price that she charged me.  Is that friendly? Disenchanted  Dear Disenchanted:  No! It is not friendly and  when it comes to money and  sex, friendship often takes  a backseat. If you're satisfied with your purchase, let  it go, but avoid doing business  with that person in the future.  This is a case where the  friend couldn't win for losing ��� your friendship, that is.  Dear Ann:  I am not a bad looking man  overall. I have a muscular  build and all my hair, but 1  have big ears. Reading of the  plastic surgery changes for  women I was considering it  for my ears. Does this seem  reasonable? Overendowed  Dear Overendowed:  That's a good way to put  it. You have more wind  resistance but what the heck,  go for it if you're sure it will  make that much difference  in how you feel about your-1  self. Think how little it matters  what our friends look like.  It's how they treat us, their  thoughtfulness, and warmth.  Appearance is important but  won't replace a good personality and a caring person.  How many people do you  like for their appearance?
