 rhe Sunshine  Published at Gibsons, B.C.  15�� per copy on newsstands  Serving the Sunshine Coast since 1945  June 13.1978  Volume 31, Number 24  Power line meeting set  Discussion uf B.C.Hydro's controversial twin-500-kV hydro  power line, as mentioned last column, has recently centered  on a possible new route which would avoid the Sechell Peninsula and eliminate the mosl dangerous aerial crossings,  The new alternate route was t'irsl brought up at a May 24  meeting of the Area 'A' APC by APC member Don McNaughton  and al Ihat time Hydro officials willingly agreed to provide a  helicopter and a staff geologist to overfly the route with APC  members. This flighl has now been completed. Hydro geologist Karl Ricker arrived by helicopter in Madeira Park on June I  and picked up McNaughton and AI'C member Bruce Woods-  worth for an aerial survey of the area between Narrows Inlet  and Vancouver Bav where the route would be located.  This group of Roberts Creek residents, led by  Paul Sonntag who is pictured holding their  petition, gathered at 7.30 a.m. last Monday  morning to oppose the widening of an access  road at the bottom of Park Avenue in Roberts  Creek. The Department of Highways truck  looms up in the background.  Significance of Ihe new route:  As background, it might be  explained that Hydro and its  route selection consultant  Beak Consultants Ltd. have  from the beginning of public  discussions agreed on the feasibility of a more northerly  powerline route crossing of  Malaspina Strait from Albion  Point near Wcstview and running north of Hotham Sound  to an aerial crossing of Jervis  Inlet in the area of Vancouver  Bay. The submarine crossing  from Albion Point is given as  preferable to the one at Cape  Cockburn and the aerial crossing from the high bluffs  near Vancouver Bay is also  shown in the Beak Repori as  feasible. Thc problem was  getting the line to Vancouver  Bay from the easl. A sliorl  direct route linking the  Vancouver River Valley wilh  a tributary of lhc Squamish  River called Ashlu Creek was  rejected by Beak because of a  suspected slide area. A route  up the east shoreline of Sechelt Inlet and Jervis Inlet  was feasible but disfavoured  bv locals because of its un-  sightlincss, The route suggested by McNaughton would  reach Vancouver Bay In taking the line up Narrows Inlet  and running through a choice  of two inland passes io Vancouver Bay. II feasible ihis  route would provide the key  thai would open the long-  sought "feasible alternative"  to Hydro's proposed crossings  of   the   Sechell    Peninsula.  Report on the first alternative:'  Woodsworth. who is a consulting and explorations  geologist with experience in  aerial powerline surveys,  wrote the report of the AI'C  delegation's findings, He  pointed out ihat two routes  were looked al. Route Number One leaves Ihe head of  Narrows Inlet and runs up the  Tzoonie River valley to the  junction of the Chickwat  Creek which it follows to a  pass at the 3.900-foot elevation. North of this pass it  joins a tributary of the Vancouver River and runs down  Petitions at Sechelt Council  At the Sechelt Council  meeting on Wednesday. June  7 George Floros was given  approval in principle for his  building complex adjacent to  the Parthenon.  This was the second application by Mr. Floros and it had  been modified to comply with  thc planner's wishes. There  are several covenants in the  approval, the principle one  being that the two parcels of  land, one with the Parthenon  on it and the one for the combination residence and business complex, are to be kept  as one even in Ihe event of  the sale of Ihe land.  Village planner. Doug  Roy. read a two-page brief,  giving his reasons for approval  and the provisos that must be  followed. He felt that it was  unreasonable to make Mr.  Floros wait for the Sechelt  Vicinity Plan in order tu  begin construction, and that  the revised plans, it adhered  to, met the village requirements. There was mention  that the complete site was  shy two parking spaces,  but this was fell to bc acceptable considering the amount  of on-street parking available in the immediate area.  The planner's main concern  was the water run off, and he  stipulated that a site survey  would be required before a  zoning  permit  would be  is  sued.  Henry Hall made representation to Council on behalf uf the proposed Sunshine  Coast Econnmic Study. In  his presentation, he pointed  out that Powell River had done  a study similar to what he  was proposing and were presently reaping the benefits  from it.

When John Kavanagh,  owner of the Cedars Inn,  put thc question to council  members, "How many liquor  outlets does this municipal  council intend to allow in the  village of Gibsons,'' Alderman  Hume drew applause from the  meeting when he answered,  "As many as the people of  the village want to have."  Bill Edney of Lucky Dollar  Foods said that it was not an  issue concerning the interests  of established liquor outlet  operators or MTR holdings.  "As a businessman of thc  area." said Edney, "I see a  great need for people to be  able to buy a drink in thc  lower village without climbing  thc hill ur taking a taxi. It  is an opportunity and wc  should seize it."  it was generally agreed  that thc feeling of thc meeting  was definitely in favour of  at least one liquor uutlet in  thc lower village and possibly  mure than one since, as was  said, "A marine pub is nut  intended tu service the people  uf the communitv."

Thc  Sechelt Indian Band, the Regional Board, the two municipalities, the two Chambers  of Commerce, major employers in the area, and major  trade unions. The cost to  the Sechelt Council was tentatively set in the $1,500  region.  Mr. Len Van Egmund  requested a rezoning of one  part of Seaview Estates in  Porpoise Bay to Residential  111. This is so that hc can  go ahead with multi-family  dwellings on the property.  Council asked Van Egmond  the reasons for thc delay in  upgrading Trail Avenue.  He explained that work could  not be continued on thc road  until the water lines had been  installed. All that was now  required was to lay the  gravel and grade it. This wili  bc happening in thc near  future. Thc planner felt the  area would be suitable for  rezoning. huwever the study  of the area had not been  completed and he felt that he  could come up with some solid  recommendations by the middle of the month.  Mr. Munru. thc Powell  River operator for Filter  Queen vacuum cleaners  asked Council to waive the  usual $200 per person for a  peddler's license. He fell  that if he had several salesmen in the area and had to  pay $200 for each one. then  he could not run a viable  business.

Woodsworth  wrote i  "I. Very solid granodloritc  bedrock in evidence mosl ol  route; 2. Relatively low pass  elevation; .'. Completely  unsettled throughout; 4.  Northern half in very gentle  terrain following disused  railroad grade: 5. Similar  truck road follows southern  half north to within one mile  of pass."  Woodsworth's repori  also included unfavourable  comments on Route No. 1:  "I. The firsl mile from the  pass going north has a very  sleep descent, thus posing  problems for an exceptionally  heavy 500 kV line; 2. In same  area as above and next half  mile as well there is evidence  of very small snow avalanches  coming down four narrow gullies each aboul 200 cards  wide. SUMMARY: While  avalanche areas arc so small  as to bc no direct risk to  transmission lowers. air  turbulence they set up is said  lo reach velocities that could  take oul the lines. In thc  opinion of this consultant all  problems could be overcome  by using heavier lowers  placed at higher elevations  above the slide areas."  77ie second alternative:  Route Number Two follows  the same route as Rome  Number One up the Tzoonie  and Chickwat but strikes  west about Vh miles earlier,  running through a 4,200-  foot pass and down the valley  of the Perckcll Creek to  Tidewater some 2 miles  south of Vancouver Bay.  Woodsworth's comments are  as follows:  "I. Bolh sides of pass are  serviced with logging roads to  within a mile of height of  land: 2. Route would have  slightly less snowfall than  Route I because of exposure  to warmer ocean air: .t. Northern and southern sections  of grade both favourable;  4. No steep descents throughout.  It would appear to this  consultant that Route No. 2  is entirely feasible with no  major drawbacks. Il is .?()()  feci higher than Chickwat at  the highest point bin this may  be compensated for in terms  of snowfall by its being closer  to the ocean.''  The APC excursion was  thus successful in proving  the existence of a viable  alternative route which would  eliminate many of the undesirable alternative routes  crossing Sechelt Peninsula  and Nelson Island.  And     the third alternative:  A third alternative was  also studied al lite APC delegation's    request,    litis    one  following   the   Ashlu   Creek  course some fifteen  miles in  a norihwcsi direction, thus  striking southwest down lite  vallev of a creek called lhc  Stiikawtis and finally down ihe  Vancouver River lo Vancouver  Bay. This route was also  found to be clear of major  obstacles, and from social  and environmental standpoints n is much ihe niosi  attractive so far considered.  Il would limit aerial crossings  of sail water lo one. and avoid  exposure of ihe line anywhere  bul in ihe immediate Vancouver Hay area.  The question as to whether  any of Ihe three will be accepted by Hydro has nol yet  been answered although it  may be ai ihis Saturday's  .

Even without  particular background on the details of  tins particular dispute, however, somc-  iliing might conceivably bc said.  First the continuing Canadian bugbear  of disparate regional interests is evident  here. Local fishermen feel that Fisheries  Minister Leblanc. an Easterner himself,  is trading off fishing rights on thc west  coasl to achieve some gains for east  coasl fishermen. We have no wish to  add our voice lo any bleating west coast  dissatisfaction with Canada when the  old girl needs and deserves all the  friends that she can gct, but it is true  that often the federal government, the  vast majority of those federal members  of parliament represent eastern constituencies, frequently betrays a lack of  sensitivity ��� to say thc least ��� to the  concerns of the West. It is a situation  which in Ihe long run will prove intolerable but will nol be rectified until we have  a federal government with its strength  scattered throughout the country rather  than grouped in two or three provinces  in Ihe Eastern part of the country.  The second observation which might  bc made is that il is lo be hoped that our  government, besides attempting to rep-  resenl Ihe legitimate concerns of Canadians on bolh Ihe east and the west  coasl. will negotiate wilh some toughness  on behalf of Canadians' interests as a  whole. The hislory of negotiation between the United States and Canada in  the one hundred and ten years of our  federation's life has been one of constant outsmarting of Canadian and  British negotiators by their American  counterparts. From thc days of the  negotiations concerning the Alaska  Panhandle when the British sold out  Canadian interests to appease the  Americans, lo the Columbia River Treaty  which W. A.C.Bennett masterminded  with disastrous and continuing cost  to the Canadian taxpayer. Canada has  continually cume out with the short end  of the stick in these negotiations.  If our country is to continue to be a  country we as a people, while guarding  our non-belligerent stance vis a vis the  world, will have to see our representatives refusing to let us continue to be a  pushover for our neighbours to the  south. This present fishing dispute  would seem tu be as good a place to start  as anv.  Hydro comes again  Attention is drawn to the article from  the Pender Harbour Ratepayers about  Hydro's continued plans for a power line  to Vancouver Island, and in particular  to the meeting being planned again  Ihis Saturday in Madeira Park. It would  appear ihat routes for the power line are  available which will lessen much of the  environmental impact of the puwer line  and we deserve to be assured that they  arc receiving full consideration from the  power corporation.  What must nol bc allowed to happen,  after the splendid interest and argument  lhal Ihe people of the Sunshine Coast  have thus far presented against the  original plans for the power line, is that  we lapse into indifference and apathy.  The public meeting which will be held on  the weekend will be al least as full of  information for the men from Hydro as  ii will be fore the residents of the  Sunshine Coast. If. after that last memorable meeting, Hydro officials come  amongst us Ihis time and find that the  turnout and the interest is noticeably  diminished they will be perfectly justified in believing ihat previous protests  amounted to nothing more lhan a tempes'  in a leapot and go ahead with whichever plan appeals to iheir technocrats  most.  It is simply not enough to raise our  voices once against a plan which we  find unacceptable. We can be sure  that the Hydro men are masters of the  waiting game and if they detect any  lessening of opposition or interest on  thc part of the residents of the Sunshine  Coast they will please themselves and we  will have no one tu blame but ourselves.  It is necessary, then, if our concerns  about this massive new power line and  the route it takes to Vancouver Island,  or indeed its necessity at all, if those  concerns were justified in the first  place they are justified still today. If  our resulutinn continues to be high in  opposition to the plans of the Power  Corporation it behouves us tu continue  to indicate that opposition with all the  eloquence, the concern, and the vigilance  that were in evidence the last time Hydro  officials came through here to discuss  their plans.  If our stance is weakened by a serious  reduction in numbers at this meeting we  will have gone a very lung way to undermine whatever positiun we suught to  take. It has been proven that concerted  opposition can affect thc decision makers  from afar but it cannot be a one-shot  opposition. It must be consistent, enduring and determined if it is to be  effective.  from the files of Coast New  fe1^11*  er  L  w  ��  5 YEARS AGO  Vince Prewer, aged 76, long-time  resident of Gibsons and a man very  active in the commercial life of the  community died on Monday of this  week.

A singles  match is underway on the clay court built and maintained  by a local tennis club on property owned by W.W.Winn.  Eric Inglis recalls having helped to take blue clay from a bank  where the highway crosses Chaster Creek, mixing it with sand,  and rolling it flat for a smooth surface, usable only in dry weather. This site was excavated in 1947 to make space for Bal's  Block. After this loss, the community raised funds with which  to help clear and commence to develop Dougal Park. There,  Eric did his bit not by bringing in clay but by removing hard-  pan. The two courts built In the Park have been recently  refurbished by the Village. Two additional courts, also made  possible by public support, are located near Elphinstone  Secondary School. With only a minor break, the community  has contrived to maintain facilities for this venerable game for  nearly fifty years.

In fact there  are occasions when I am quite  fond of it. I give frequent  thanks for what the poet  Rupert Bruoke referred tu as  "the benisnn of hot water."  I like a good long, meditative  bath and indulge myself  frequently. I like the brisk  tingling action of a good  shower. All over Canada I  have sought hot springs and  can lie inert and happy in  hot water whether in a rocky  crevice or a tub fur as long  as anyone I know. Many  years ago on my unly foray  suuth intu the sub-trupical  zunes of the world. I paddled  and swam and floated with  the enthusiasm of a real  aquaphile in lhc clear warm  waters of Ihe Mediterranean.  No it is not water per se that  I have a quarrel with.  It will bc apparent to the  perceptive reader that the  constant in thc above paragraph of tribute is temperature. I like warm water. It  is entirely Ihe question uf  temperature that exercises  whatever negativity I feel  towards thc substance which  covers two thirds of the  world's surface. Any exposure to water which isn't  the same temperature as the  blood leaves me cold, so to  speak, and since I have spent  virtually my entire life in  northern climes my relationship wilh Ihe wel stuff in its  untreated forms has nol often  been a happy one.  Of course, the roots of ihis  uneasy relationship go back  to the rools of childhood.  Western Scotland is a charming place, a bonny place lull  of warm and hospitable people  and I love il dearly, but it is  no disloyalty on my part to  acknowledge that it is assuredly not the sun and fun  capital of the world. The  North Atlantic is cold. They  tell you with a heartless  cheerfulness that thc Gulf  Stream touches the coast and  that il is warmer than the rest  of the Atlantic bul it is small  comfort indeed. The best  that can be said for it is that  there are not actual icebergs  visible.  When I was very young  wc paddled first in the muddy  puols of little streams. Thc  Fuller Burn near Mauchline  was my first splashing place.  Wc used to go off, three or  four of us on thc rare sunny  days when real warmth could  be discerned from the sun for  'a day at the Fuller'. We  would fortify ourselves  with  polatoes and turnips and carrots lifted from farmers'  fields along the way and  make ourselves improvised  and meatless stews in a billy-  can over a campfire and  splash with varying degrees  of enthusiasm in the muddy  tepid water. Even then.  as an astonishingly thin  child I was always thc first  to feel the cold, there never  being an ounce of fat between  my poor bones and the elements.  Sometimes we undertook  an expedition to thc sea,  just eleven miles away but  the distance does not indicate  the massive nature of Ihe  undertaking. On hot Sundays  we would irek the mile to the  bus slop encumbered with the  paraphernalia of summer  pleasure sueh as we knew it  and would stand in line fur  buses which came every  hour. On such Sundays  half the population of lhc villages of the area would have  the same idea and il was not  unusual to see thc great  red double deckers already  loaded with beach bound families sweep right past us  and then it would bc another  wait of an hour in thc hopes  of gelling on to the next  one.  Our destination was always  Ayr, which is a very pleasant  coastal town and Ihe capital  of the county. The beaches at  Ayr surely lake second place  tu none in lernts of sand.  Mile after mile of Ihe mosl  incredible golden sands, but.  oh, the temperature of the  waler. I have pictures of  incredibly crowded beaches  wilh people wrapped in rugs  and shawls and huddled in  deck chairs bravely sunning  themselves in the face of a  cool breeze off the North  Atlantic. The men would  take off their jackets and tics  and, depending on age. would  stroll thc sands nr play soccer on thc adjacent grass.  The women would superintend thc inevitable tea and  sandwiches and thc more  hardy among them would  wade calf deep in thc frigid  waters. Some impervious  children would frolic and the  very occasional swimmer  would actually enter the sea.  but fur the must part it was  empty and as a child I would  content myself with my sand  pail and little shovel and  make castles or wander  around looking at the people,  a life long hobby of mine.  Later in high school they  gave   us   swimming   lessons.  and fine exercises in sadism  they were. They marched us  across to an open air swimming pool in April in Scotland,  tor God's sake, some eight  or nine degrees south of thc  Arctic Circle and taught us  swimming. I lurked in changing rooms and washrooms  and set all kinds of records  for thc time taken lo gct out  of clothes and into swimming  trunks and kept the dreadful exposure lo the icy water  down to a minimum. I was  invariably blue and shivering  and the P.E. teacher, whom 1  loathed, look great delight in  making sure I was getting my  quota of suffering.  Years later and of my own  volition I learned to swim at  an indoor pool, heated, at the  Central Downtown Y.M.C.A.  in Montreal and since my  arrival on the Coast here  I will on very hoi days in very  sheltered rock-warmed pools  actually succeed in enjoying  the business of swimming.  1 envy those who plunge in  and frolic and on very brief  occasions manage it myself.  For the mosl part however I  like to look at water or meet  it in the aforementioned  hoi pools or bathtubs.  A few years ago 1 was  back in Scotland and walking  Ihe same beaches I had shivered on as a boy. Two urchins  burst from the waves right  beside me and I asked thc  traditional question. "How's  thc water!" The little buy  who answered me was blue  and shook uncontrollably wiih  the cold. "Oh. it's grreat,"  he said and scampered off  to wrap himself in Ihe biggest  towel he could find. I admired  his tenacious optimism but  could not and cannol emulate  it. No one is more abjectly  and ineffectually miserable  than this skinny Scot at the  merest touch of cold water.  So was it when I was a boy.  So is it now I am a man.  Could it be that thc Driftwood Plavers are actually  going to get together and do a  play after all this time? It  seems that this time Burnside  is the culprit. On his own initiative, without the least encouragement from anyone,  he went out and bought a  couple of copies of three  very funny Eric Nichol plays.  Then one night at thc Cedars,  in a fit of beery enthusiasm  he managed, as only the Coast  News editor can. to talk both  of us into doing something  about it.  Once John had his sucker in  the bag he did a Matthews and  skulked away on some lame  excuse about a holiday and  left thc poor sucker holding  his own bag. To make matters  worse, everybody that read  thc damned script seemed to  like it. So there we were with  a good script, some turned on  people and no money with a  first rehearsal coming up on  Tuesday night at Mary Dory's  place on Pratt Road. In the  best Driftwood Players  tradition thc casting will be  open. We're looking for -a  young, beautiful but vacuous  female who looks stunning in a  bikini; a tough , worldly,  middle-aged female housekeeper who collects purno-  graphie dnltwuod; a cynical,  good looking .15 to 45 year old  poet; a tweedy but attractive  young female professor;  a mad Russian poet; two big  police officers, referred to  irreverently as "Tweedledum" and "Tweedle-dum-  mcr"; an aggressive, wealthy,  middle-aged patroness of the  arts; her mousey, but business  wise dog-food manufacturer  husband; and a young Eskimo  sculptor.  The play itself is a relatively simple three-act, hilariously funny, irreverent,  sexy, satirical and light  hearted play. Called "The  Fourth   Monkey",   the   play  was first performed in 1968  at the Playhouse Theatre in  Vancouver and featured the  Beachcombers' Rae Brown in  one of the lead roles. The setting is a small, privately  owned Gulf Island and contains enough coast humour  and reference to make it  perfect Gibsons fare.  The next step, after casting. I guess is to gct the  stage manager working, start  rehearsing twice a week,  and look to put the play  together by Sea Cavalcade  time. Putting on a play is an  interesting business. The  object of the exercise is clear,  the time line precise and not  much in this world offers the  opportunity to make order  out of chaos in such simple  terms.  People work harder, accept  instructions and criticisms  more easily and devote  themselves to the success of  an enterprise more willingly  when they are doing something they like and want to  do. Play production is such  an enterprise.  Anyone out there who wants  tu work in this production  should gct oul to our first  rehearsal. Be prepared to do  a reading, listen to ihe director wax philosophical about  the qualities of each character and generally bc ordered  around. We need actors  and backstage people willing  to commit two months tu the  production,  Damn you Burnside! How  could you do this to me?  I could have spent thc next  two months sunning on thc  beach, weeding the garden,  reading, getting intu shape  and generally recreating myself. Now you've got me  turned on tu doing this  bloody play and you're not  even going to be in it. Damn  your suul! But yuu and 1  know hnw much fun I'm  going to have.  MEETING AT NIGHT  The grey sea and the long black land;  And thc yellow half-moon large and low;  And thc startled little waves that leap  In fiery ringlets from their sleep,  As I gain the cove with pushing prow,  And quench its speed in the slushy sand.  Then a mile of warm sea-scented beach;  Three fields to cross till a farm appears;  A tap at thc pane, the quick sharp scratch  And blue spurt of a lighted match,  And a voice less loud, thro' its joys and fears,  Than the two hearts beating each to each!  by Robert Browning  mm  mmmmmmtmm Coast News.

It was to remain  that way until my latter teens.  Around l��MK. after several  years elsewhere, I returned  to Vancouver with my family  and began exploring thc warrens of thc city anew. My eyes  were beginning to widen by  now; my interests beginning  to stray beyond movie-theatres, libraries and secondhand bookstores, Accompanied by my equally-curious  friends Dapper and Bird. I  drifted again to that scruffiest section of town. We were  motivated partly by Ihe  rumour thai certain pubs in  the area took a lax attitude  when it came to serving  minors. (After a number of  embarrassing ejections, we  eventually located a couple.)  Women loomed large in our  thoughts also. None of us  for some reason, was doing  particularly well with girls  during that particular period.  Accordingly, we became very  intrigued by thc painted and  beckoning gypsy women who  sat in the windows of several  empty stores along Main  Street.

One night, we determined to  find out.   Fortified by several  beers, wc approached one of  thc   stores   in   question.   By  some process of elimination,  it   had   fallen   upon   Bird   to  broach  the  matter.     As  we  waited   breathlessly   outside  he  entered   the   store,   approached  the  smiling,  seated  gypsy  and   engaged   her   in  nervous   conversation.      Abruptly  she  broke  Into  gales  of laughter.     Her  action  so  demoralized  poor  Bird  that  hc just  stood there stunned  for a second.   A large, mous-  tached  gypsy male emerged  through a curtain  from  the  back,   also   laughing.      Bird  lied in confusion.  Wc hurried  away from there, feeling like  a   pack  of  fools  and  didn't  bother thc gypsies again.  One of our chief diversions  on those initial skidroad  junkets was simply studying  the characters who made the  district their home. There was  a peculiar man who wore a  white suit (somewhat stained  and discoloured with age),  puttees and a pith helmet.  Several medals of obscure  origin decorated his right  breast. He looked like a refugee from Victorian India  somehow cast adrift on these  alien streets. We often spotted him silently scuttling on  unknown errands among  hoarse-voiced derelicts and  shrill-voiced eastend housewives shopping for bargains  at cut-rate clothing or meat  stores.  Then as today. Chinatown  lay cheek by jowl with thc  skidroad-proper but studiously maintained its own identity.  The Chinese population was  notably abstemious and it was  highly unusual to see a drunk-  JJ  en Oriental. There were the  immemorial tales of secret  passages that honeycombed  the earth beneath Pender  Street and led to subterranean opium-dens but if they  existed, they were strictly  off-limits to white men. Before the licensing of cafes,  there were no liquor-outlets  of a legal nature in Chinatown. There were however,  two or three quite notorious  bottle-clubs where you could  bring your own and buy mixer.  I received a rather jolting  introduction to eastend cabaret night-life in one of these  places.  It came about in the late  fall of that year, courtesy of  my brother Chris who had  just arrived in town from an  upcoast logging-camp with  his first stake of any consequence. 1 was still working  then at thc General Hospital  laundry for minisculc wages  and when Chris offered to  finance a night on the town,  I was far from averse. I was  by this time, keeping sporadic  company with a dark intense  girl called Alice and Chris  had secured a date with an  old girl-friend. He had come  down from camp with a partner however and somehow  it was agreed that the guy  would join us for awhile.  Chris' friend was a Cape  Bretoner called Scotia. He  was new on the Coast and  Chris felt duty-bound to invite  him along for a few drinks.  Scotia was squat, bushy-  browed, burly, about thirty  and seemed friendly-enough.  We picked up a couple of  bottles and made our way  to the seedy establishment  already mentioned. The club  was virtually empty. We ordered Chinese food and ginger-ale and settled in to have  aparty.  Everything went swimmingly up to a certain point.  With a few drinks in him.  the somewhat taciturn Scotia  became very talkative and  regaled us with wild stories  about his Maritime boyhood  and thc long Odyssey that had  brought him finally to the  westcoast woods. It was  amusing at first but hc didn't  know when to stop and  after awhile, his constant  talking began to grate on our  nerves. The girls were beginning to gel edgy and bored.  Chris and I retired to the  John to discuss some diplomatic method of getting out of  there minus the garrulous  Easterner. Suddenly, the door  burst open and Scotia came  charging through like a berserk rhino. He'd somehow  developed the delusion that  Chris and I had come to the  washroom to fight. "You  ain't punchin' out any partner  of mine!" hc hollered.  I was so plain damn surprised. I didn't even sec the  blow coming. It caught me  off-balance and square in  the mouth. The next thing  I knew. I was sitting on my  rear-end in the urinal with a  cut lip.  "Hey! Take it easy for  Christ's sake!" protested  Chris. "Nobody wants to  bloody fight! We're just  talking."  "Don't tell me what to do.  you sonofabitch!" roared thc  burly Maritimer. quite amok  now and completely forgetting his original purpose in thc  raw business of battle. Hc  swung on Chris who was a  good deal lighter than me and  knocked him flat on his butl  too.  I lurched to my feet with thc  seat of my pants soaking wet  and no sort of strategy in  mind.

Since lhal lime  il has held its various activities  including weekly practices, in  Vancouver. During the ll)70-7l  season il was a male chorus,  numbering a do/en members.  Il began by performing the short,  simple songs of ihe mountains of  Italy in Ihree or four pans. In  the following season the chorus  grew lo about 20 members,  including a half dozen women.  Since lhal time it has grown in  size (40 members) and has ex  panded ils repertory, to include,  besides lhc folk music, also some  operatic choruses, and some religious music.

It's something   ings  of alienation  from  all  to bear in mind when you  hear people talk about filling  in and subdividing the marsh  sanctuaries of birdlife or in-  this "culture", at least they  have something concrete to  feel alienated from.

An unspoiled natural environment  and abundant wildlife arc an  essential part of Ihe history  and heritage of this continent. Our irresponsible attitude toward Ihis heritage has  already resulted in thc near  extinction of Ihe once numerous bison and bald eagle and  the placement of many other  species on the endangered  list. If wc fail to continue and  expand our conservation activities this continent will stxin  resemble Africa, where the  remnants of what was once  the most prolific and varied  wildlife in Ihe world are  crowded together on a few  preserves that are still ruthlessly plundered by poachers.  Surprisingly, for a people  who have become increasingly urban-oriented over the  past century, our attitude  toward our cities has been  little better. Traditionally  man has progressed by  building thc future upon the  foundation of the past. In  Europe, new buildings coexist with ancient structures.  Thc  castles,  cathedrals and  tempt for our own history  that we have already shown  for the natural environment.  We knock down perfectly  serviceable buildings less  than fifty years old to make  room for jerry-built buildings  which will doubtlessly bc  pulled down long before their  usefulness is ended to facilitate thc construction of still  other "temporary" structures. Il may make for a  healthy construction industry, but when a high percentage of the stores and offices  thus created remain untenanted for long periods the  wisdom of such enthusiastic  growth might seem questionable, particularly when  buildings of truly historical  interest and significance are  resettled from the bulldozer  at the eleventh hour only by  the most determined acton  on the part of citizens' groups.  Thc alienation North Americans feel when confronted  with their culture differs  greatly from thc alienation  of Europeans. It's one thing  to be alienated from a culture  represented by. say.

We live in a time when it is  possible for a human being to  have witnessed both the  Wright brothers' first powered flight and thc first landing of men on thc moon. Our  very surroundings change so  rapidly and radically that wc  constantly feel like strangers  in our own homes. Just the  other week I shared a cup of  coffee with an older man in  the Dogwood Cafe. He'd  spent mosl of his life farming  in the Gibsons area and he  regaled me wilh laics of the  days when mosl of what is  now upper Gibsons was farmland or bush and strav cows  used to wander through the  lower village. He spoke with  wistful resignation of thc  changes hc had seen and 1.  curiously enough. didn't  find il all thai hard to empathize with him. I realized at  some point in the conversation  that Ihe reason for this was  simply that my own earliest  memories of Gibsons are of  the "Gibsons Landing" of  fifteen to twenty years ago,  when it was thc terminal of  overnight fishing-trips with  my father and wc tied our  boat up to the jetty and  slept on thc damp deck,  rocked to sleep by the waters  of the bay lapping against  thc hull with a sound like  poetry chanted in an impossibly beautiful alien language.  My memories of Gibsons  were a child's memories,  clear and distinct, but almost  too real, somehow timeless  and dreamlike. For years 1  seldom consciously gave a  thought to the place, though  every so often, when I'd had  it up to here with the city  and my thoughts turned to  potential sanctuary. Gibsons  would spring to mind out of  my subconscious memory.  When the town re-entered  my life (or 1 re-entered it's,  depending on point of view)  1 became aware of the many  changes that had taken place,  but I also recognized, with the  relief you always feel when  you discover a place you think  you might have dreamed, that  thc fundamental character  of thc place, the intangible  quality that had impressed  itself on my young mind,  still persisted.

If we cannot completely control our destiny,  we at least have the power  to seriously affect the direction that change will take.

On Saturday night I was on  my way lo Pender Harbour to  sec how Keith Simpson's doing.  As you probably remember he  is the fellow from the Reifel  Sanctuary in Delta, and is doing  studies up here on the Great  Blue Heron.  Anyway as you can tell from  the opening line. I didn't make it.  I really wanted to go up there  because Keith is up with his  family ��� it's a hard life when  your job forces you to come up  to an area like Ihis and tramp  around in the sunshine. What  is interesting is that he's figured  out a way It) catch the darned  birds and has so far banded  seven of them, Hc goes to thc  heronry every morning and  evening when thc birds are  roosting, it should make for  some interesting pictures. It'll  bc interesting if he has finally  come t�� the realization that all  hc has to do is stand at thc  bottom of thc trees and imitate  a minnow. When the birds  gather around his wife has only  to sneak up behind them and  gtomp on to them. I guess I'll  find out because 1 intend to  make it up there this week,  right after 1 remember to buy  my vitamin pills.  BOURBON  The second thing that I didn't  do wasn't my fault. I can blame  the editor's dog. It was my  birthday a couple of weeks ago,  and a friend of mine came over  from Victoria and presented me  with a large red dog. it looks  like it's an Irish Setter with a  bit of Gordon Setter in him.  Hc came with a name which he  doesn't answer to: Bourbon ���  no, it's Brandy ��� no, I was  right thc first time. As you can  tell 1 don't like the name, in  fact a couple of days ago 1 had  to call him during a minor emergency; I couldn't get his name out  so shouted SPOT! at the top of  my voice and got more reaction  than ever previously.  What I was planning was to  take a picture of him and put  il in the paper and offer a five-  dollar prize to a kid thai came up  with the besl name.  Shortly before I was to take  thc picture, he got into a fighl  with Rab. the aforementioned  editor's dog. and if I were to  take a picture right now most of  'Repairs  *Ready mades  *C raft items _  *Minor Alteration?

DUCKS  I was at the marsh in Seehelt  ihe week before last and was  happy to see a group of about a  dozen teals swimming about.  Last week there was a wood  duck in the same area. I guess  ihis means that the tourist season  has started. For confirmation of  this. I was down in the Mission  Point area early on Friday morning and came across thirteen  harlequin ducks. I've never  seen so many at one time before.  Most of them were bobbing  around in thc surf, but three or  four of them were sitting up on  a small rock. Every time a big  wave came in they would get  completely submerged then reappear after it had passed. They  looked like they were having a  greal time.

Captain  Hodgson was public spirited  in many ways and was one  lime Mayor of Gibsons and a  very good one. He was also  a good artist, Hc did a portrait of John Diefenbaker  of which hc was very proud.  He had a snapshot of himself presenting his painting  to Diefenbaker.

I was visiting a friend on the  waterfront and Ihey flew along  the shore at eye level in front of  her house,instead of higher and  quieter. It seems the helicopter  is a real offender-low and loud.  Maybe if we phone or wrile il  would help. Us sure a nuisance-  the highway in the sky-loud  unpleasant noises over which we  have no control contribute to  high blood pressure, tension  and longevity. It seems everyone would be interested in keeping    the    sound    level    low.  MM  MHIM Freethinker** Pulpit:-  Rebel in uniform  By Andy Randall  The newly-elected executive of the Gibsons Lions Club were sworn  last week.  into office  Music Horizon  By John Burnside  To the lol of editor of a  small town newspaper. I  discover, falls some unexpected tasks. I was ready when  I launched myself haphazardly  on this new endeavour for thc  writing of news stories; I  was ready for lite requisite  editorials and 1 was ready for  thc weekly responsibility of a  general column. Since I  began, however. I found  myself one week recently  writing a cooking column and  to say that I am one of the  world's least foremost cooking  experts is lo bc very kind.  This week again 1 am confronted with a new challenge ��� that of music critic.  Now all my life I have been  somewhat of a slow beginner  and a late developer and nowhere was that more apparent  than in the field of music.  At thc age of twelve I was  asked to leave the church  choir. "Come back when  your voice matures." said the  kindly gentleman. The drama  club I belonged to as a boy  did Scottish Country Dancing  between plays and 1 was  excused. "You have no  sense of rhythm." they told  mc.  In some important aspects,  however, I am impervious to  discouragement and I persevered sufficiently to the  point where I can occasionally  sing without anyone throwing  something and in thc last  twenty odd years I've danced  a million miles. So when I  discovered that Mike Evans,  the new columnist for the  Coast News who has undertaken a regular review of  local bands and the music  scene generally for this  paper, was working with his  band. Horizon, at the Sechelt  Legion on Friday and Saturday  nights of last week 1 intrepidly volunteered a review of his  band in thc space usually  reserved for his column.  It's a four piece ensemble  featuring Evans on lead guitar. Rick Nelson on Bass.  Rick Warren on keyboards,  and Peter Kcrbis on drums  and on Saturday night in thc  **************  tf  NDP  25% OFF  All Farley Mowat books  **************  is!  I  Sechelt Legion they were  playing before a packed hall  of enthusiastic dancers. Their  work was most enjoyable. The  playing was tight and the  beat good. Ihcy. for thc most  part eschew flashy solo work  in favour of tight ensemble  playing and tile whole was  professionally presented.  The breaks between sets  were not excessive and they  went from one song to another  without the annoying delays  between numbers that cool  thc blood and frustrate thc  spirit.  What solo work Ihcy did  undertake wus impressive.  Evans is a fine guitarist and  in one Johnny Winters number in particular, hc permitted  himself some soaring lead  guitar work that seemed to  these cars to bc worthy of thc  man himself. lhc vocals  were handled by Evans. Nelson and Warren and Warren's  vocal work was especially  interesting. If there was a  fault in thc earlier going il  perhaps lay in Ihe vocals of  Nelson and Evans. Not because thev can't sing. They  can. but in eschewing the  flashy approach to their  work, which 1 heartily approve  of ��� how many more se-  quincd strutting peacocks  can wc stand ��� they rather  overdid the self-containment  in thc early part of the dance.  Later they warmed up and  addressed themselves to their  tasks with more intensity and  thc vocals strengthened  as thc night wore on but it  might bc advisable for them to  seek that vocal intensity,  that projection of feeling and  enthusiasm earlier in the  evening when thc crowd  needs warming up.  Again let mc stress that this  is a minor quibble. In thc  later stages of the evening  their attack on thc material  was energetic and commendable and if they can begin at  that level of energy and sustain it they will do very  well indeed.  And a special word must  bc saved for thc work of  drummer Kcrbis. Along with  Evans and Nelson, Peter  was once a student of mine  and the fact Ihat he was not  a vocalist did not surprise  me. I think in three high  school years 1 rarely heard  him utter. Likewise in three  high school years. I rarely  saw him move and so it was  with delight that I watched  his work as a drummer.   He  laid down the requisite dancing beat witli authority and  did so with imagination and  energy and contributed no  small amount lo lhc driving,  danccablc quality of the  music.  The selection of music  played was commendably  wide. Slower tunes like  Margueriteville by Jimmy  Buffy and Knock on Heaven's  Door by Dylan were in evidence: standard rockers there  were in abundance like B.T.  O.'s Taking Care of Business  and Bob Secger's Rock and  Roll Never Forgets. The  Rolling Stones were vigorously represented by Jumping  Jack Flash. Let it Bleed, and  Star. Star. The Beatles were  nol overlooked, with such  numbers as Rock and Roll  Music and Day Tripper.  Giants such as Van Morrison  and thc aforementioned Johnny Winters had their work  presented with competence  and energy and some of the  newer work such as Happy  Anniversary by thc Little  River Band. Monday Morning  and Go Your Own Way,  by Fleetwood Mac, and Eric  Clapton's Lay Down Sally  kept thc crowd bouncing.  This is a competent local  band of dedication and tight  musicianship and I for one  will look forward to their  next dance and join the festivities.  **************  NDP  20% OFF  All Cookbooks  All Garden Books  **************  Shaughnessy Veteran's Hospital, way down and off Oak  Street. Vancouver, had been  built for the wounded and  maimed service-men of the  First Great War. and was mostly  called the Military Hospital. In  some respects certain unique  features set lhc 'Vet's Hospital'  distinctly apart from all other  city hospitals. By city here I  mean, of course, buildings in  the city, not necessarily owned or  operated by Ihe city. One remnant of the old traditions was the  presence of those old barrack-  type huts that stood to the left  of Ihe road leading to the majestic-looking structure, that with its  later extensions became our present day Shaughnessy Hospital.  Now you didn't need to be  overly endowed with intelligence  to reali/e Ihat serving your orderly apprenticeship in those wooden  huts would be one hell of an  experience, funking back now,  I'm sure il was Ihe best thing for  me for 1 got my rough edges  smoothed off before I got into  the more 'spit and polish' system  of thc more sanitary, and immaculate ward-rooms of lhc main  building. Complete obeisance  to authority has never been my  strong point, so the semi-barrack  room atmosphere in those ward  ' huts eased me into harness  just okay.  I will spell out the other unique  features in thc unfolding of my  yarn. Each ward had a leller.  not a number to designate it from  the others, and thc letters of the  alphabet ran backwards from the  road ward-wise. Was there  a 'Y' or a 'Z' to start them off?  I can't say offhand, but I recall  the 'W' ward, seems there was  an 'X' ward. I worked al the  extreme end huls of 'M' and  'P'. No A.B.C.'s. not enough  huts presumably. Therdexisted  a bewhiskcrcd pun on the letters  of M and P. It was possible to  catch a new nurse off her guard  by asking if she was going to  'M' and 'P'. generally she would  fall for thc gag and nod or say.  "Yes. 1 am". Some would blush  at the thought.  The 'M' ward seemed to be  primarily a convalescent home,  or home away from home, for the  Old Sweats in residence there.  Many made their own beds and  kept a barrack room tidiness,  but a few tried to impose a skid-  row atmosphere on the ward. The  old curmudgeons, many of them,  would get leave to go out almost  any night of the week. Pension-  cheque times saw them off on  Fridays. Saturdays, and maybe  some would nol return until  just when the fancy moved them,  Once in among their old cronies  in their Legion branches, or  shacking up elsewhere in the city,  they, many of them, would come  back at all hours of day or night,  and in some indescribable conditions, to rest up' until the next  big bash. I had my share of  night duty later in my experience,  and had to help separate more  battling old sweats than 1 care  to mention. Some of them didn't  even know they had been slugging il oul 'last night', but thc  nurse and myself, and even an  intern would patch them up.  so black eyes, broken noses,  and bruised hands always told  of thc night before.  If I had been there years before  so Ihe gossip wags would say,  I would have seen 'The Huts'  at their clandestine best. A real  jimcrack of a Peyton Place. Yes  Sir! Thev were rough, but so  interesting for ali concerned. Even wheelchair patients with still  enough get up and go about them  would race down the centre  corridor between thc ward-  huts, and mix for a while with  some old buddies who had shared  thc same trench with them in  that other war they could never  forget. This, my first year  there, was 1958. All high jinks  would end when the huts fell to  thc wreckers, and we moved,  lock, stock and barrel, just about,  into austere regions of the Main  Building.

An hour later, a justifiably irate  nurse berated him on the time she  had to spend with him sorting  out whose teeth belonged to  who.  On one of my earliest graveyard shift spells. Maurice too  on that shift, had just finished  his lunch, when his nurse told  him they'd 'lost' a patient, and  would hc gct the body ready for  removal to thc morgue. Next.  Miss Kelly, an Irish lass of  course, phoned me on Ward  'P'. "Will ye help Maurice.  Andy, and see he doesn't take a  live one away". She laughed at  one of thc many humourous  digs at Maurice's 'countless  booboos'.  Wc lifted the body on the  wheeled stretcher, after prepping  all ready according to Shaughncs-  sy Hospital procedures. Just  as we were moving off along the  corridor. I looked up at Maurice  and remarked. "Where's your  teeth, lad?" Maurice gave me  a wide mouth-gaping grin and  said. "Back there on the orderly  room bench."  I couldn't resist thc obvious  dig. "Hope that guy hasn't  got your teeth."  Maurice laughed. "Yeah.  That would be funny."  Half an hour alter I'd settled  down on my ward duties, the  phone rang again. 1 lifted it up  and the daftest laughter just  about shattered my ear drums.  Then, half choking. Miss Kelly  could bc heard saying. "Andy,  come back to 'W' ward. You  need to help Maurice again, but  at thc morgue this time."  "Whv. Miss Kelly?"  "I'll be damned if I'll tell  ye. It's too good to spoil. You  find oul ..." all 1 heard were  hilarious shrieks.  "What's wrong, Maurice?"  In my most diplomatic voice.  When I got thereon W.  "I washed my teeth before I  went to attend to that body. His  teeth are here. see. "And he  lifted up a set of real old-fashioned dental plates. "Mine are  on that guy in the morgue."  So wc went to the head orderly, got the morgue-door key,  and retrieved Maurice's dentures  from Ihat ice-cold body. Did  Maurice finally settle down to  a sober-minded character? No.  He was too irrepressible. He had  more ideas than a dog has  fleas.

Alderman Jorgensen reported on the recent Provincial Emergency Programme (PEP) meeting. He  had a sixteen page brief of  the meeting, but outlined that  the main point of the meeting was that the co-ordinators  were working with B.C.Tel  and trying to set up a telephone network in case of  emergency.  The installation of the  system would cost $519,  and would bc $855 per month  rental. It was hoped that with  this system 24 hour surveillance would bc possible.  B.C.Tel presented the  Village with a bill for $169.29.  This was lor damages to a  cable which was dug up by a  contractor working on behalf  of thc Village. At the time  the Village had thought the  contractor had insurance  that would cover this. They  had not heard from thc telephone company in two months  and thought the matter was  settled. The Village has  decided Ihat in thc future it  will hire only contractors  who are fully insured.  Thc Clerk was instructed  that he send a letter to lhc  Arts Council, requesting that  thev keep the site of thc future arts building tidier.

By-law 180 ��� the Trail  Bay Mall Expansion ��� required a commitment from  Council that they would construct the proposed Teredo  Street before implementation.  Council agreed to this and instructed the Clerk to send  confirmation to the Department of Highways.  Mayor Nelson informed  Council that during the recent delegation to Victoria  it had been discovered that  the Highways Department  had no intention of putting  a major road through Sechelt  for several years. At the  present time they were only  interested in acquiring a  right of way. They asked  Council if a traffic count  could bc carried out during  July and August.  The Village will be in contact with the Regional Board  in order to find some financing for the Arena.  In order that thc three  main governing bodies of the  Sunshine Coast become  acquainted with each other  il was felt that a luncheon  meeting at a time best suited  to all should bc arranged.

Hydro systems designers as  thc ones that cross thc Sechell  Peninsula and Nelson Island.  As previously noted, these  latter routes represent the  Ideal course from the standpoint of case and economy  of building and security of  maintenance, and this is why-  Hydro desires them so greatly. The argument against  them is Ihat they would make  a hash of one of thc most  attractive residential and  recreational areas in thc country, thc Sunshine Coasl.  The new routes brought to  light by the Pender Harbour  APC would not entirely eliminate the adverse social.  environmental and economic  impact of the lines on the area  since there would still bc at  least one unsightly aerial  crossing near Vancouver  Bay. but they do greatly  reduce this impact. They  represent a compromise  between the technological  considerations of Hydro on  the one hand and the human  considerations of the local  communitv on the other hand.

Will Hydro compromise?  So far thev have shown no  sign of it. In spite of the  emphatic rejection of their  plans by the local community  at numerous meetings, they  continue to come back with thc  same proposals, unaltered  from the original Beak Report  by so much as one word,  So far Hydro has nol offered  one significant concession lo  the local community, while  demanding a complete capitulation from the people in  Iheir concerns. There lias  been no offer of a cessation  of spraying, of putting cables  under water in those areas  where thev might present a  serious risk to air' traffic, or  of adding length to circumvent local community watersheds. Compromise must be  a 50-50 thing, but in recent  discussions with the APC  Hydro has been insisting that  technological factors, such as  safety of the line, receive  100% consideration. No  doubt many people feel that  thc only 100% consideration  should he reserved not for the  powerline but for the safely  and health of the people who  live under it. but the Hydro  position effectively eliminate  these factors from any consideration al all.  Thc prospeel ol Hydro  now giving in and accepting  one of the alternatives pointed  oul In the \PC or rinding  some oilier alternative does  nol therefore seem too prom  ising.

F.J.Holland,  Superintendent of Works Coast News, June 13,1978.  Our man at the track  Hoofbeats  B\ Jim Hates  The 1978 edition of the- Lieutenant Governor's Handicap  attracted eighl runners to compete for the total purse nt  $22,450. In this, ihe 18th running  ot the mile and one-sixteenth  fixture, the crowd chose as us  odds*on favourite a four-year-  old stiii ot Dust Commander,  Smiley's    Dream. Smiley's  Dream didn't disappoint his  backers. He made ii to ihe  finish line about a length and a  halt in front of his nearest foe  and paid WHO to win. Not  much of a payoff, someone said,  but a few regulars made their  largest wagers of the young  season, reasoning that 4���5  odds on Smiley's Dream was the  biggest bargain offered so far.  The one puzzling aspect of  Smiley's Dream's win was the  final time of the race, a rather  tepid one minute and forty-six  seconds. Looking back at the  last ten renewals of the Lieutenant Governor's, any horse  running 1:46 wouldn't, have come  within four lengths of winning  thc race. 1:4b would have put  Smiley's Dream as much as  twelve lengths behind a few of  the previous winners. So what  does the mediocre final time  signify? An average to good  horse beating a poor bunch?  I'robabK not.  lets take a look at the running  of the race. Last year's Lieutenant Governor's winner. My  Boj K.K.. took (he lead and  cut out some slow early pace  and kept his horse more  forwardly placed than he might  ordinarily have done. Despite  being close lo the lead. Smiley's  Dream appeared to be running  well within himself. After three-  quarters of a mile. Skinner eased  the colt to thc front and opened  up a couple of lengths on thc  field. The stretch-runners made  their moves hut didn't make  much of a dent in the two length  margin, and Smiley's Dream  didn't appear to be labouring  at the finish, though Skinner has  been quoted elsewhere as saying  the horse was "pretty much all  out to win". However, the feeling in this corner is that Smiley's  Dream ran 1:46 because that's  what it took to win. If the early-  pace had been a little faster, and  if something else in the field had  pushed a bit harder. Smiley's  Dream would likely have run  SEAMLESS GUTTERS  INSULATION  BLOWN IN WALLS and CEILINGS  ALUMINUM   3| DING   V'NYL  aluminum pATI0 CANOPIES  ALUMINUM AU/MlMQC   ROLL-UP  V,NYL DECKING  Locally owned and operated  few licks faster and won by about  the same margin. In the coming  weeks he'll probably do just that.  More than a few observers feel  he's the best horse to call Exhibition Park home in quite a while.  Who is Smiley's Dream and  where did he come from?  Like a lot of good thoroughbreds, he was born in Kentucky.  His sire. Dust Commander, won  Ihe 1970 Kentucky Derby. His  breeder and original owner.  Golden Chance Farm (nom de  race of Mrs. Robert Lchmann)  came up with a number of good  foals in 1974. Two of Smiley's  Dream's stahlemalcs were Run  Dusty Run and Bob's Dusty,  both giKtd enough to run Seattle  Slew's Kentucky Derby in 1977.  Run Dusty Run ran second to  Slew in that one and was  generally regarded as Ihe next  best three-year-old of the year.  Bob's Dusty was used in that  Derby to run a torrid early pace  to tire other horses, setting up  the stretch-running Run Dusty  Run. But Bob's Dusty was a  pretty good colt in his own right.  Hc won a division of the Spiral  Stakes al the Lationia track in  Kentucky. Who won the other  division of Spiral? Smiley's  Dream. In the Kentucky Derby,  trainer Smiley Adams (now you  know how Smiley's Dream got  his name) elected to go with  Bob's Dusty and Run Dusty  Run.  By July of 1977. most of the  classic races for three-year-olds  in the east had been run. Run  Dusty Run had established himself as the colour-bearer for  Golden Chance and Smiley's  Dream became expendable.  Enter Vancouver trainer Don  Morison. looking for a good  3-year-old to carry the Jawl  Brothers' silks in the B.C.  Derby. Morison took a long  look at Smiley's Dream at Arlington Park in Chicago and liked  what he saw. A deal was struck  for "about $50,000", and  Smiley's Dream was shipped to  Vancouver.  His first outing here was the  Hopeful Handicap last July 13.  and hc caught the local horses  and bettors napping, paying  $13.00 to win. Then it was down  to Seattle for the prestigious  Longacres Derby and an $11.00  payoff.  Bettors finally woke up and  made him the favourite in the  B.C.Derby. However, he was  asked to carry 125 Ib. and faded  to fourth. That's what makes  horse racing. After a second-  place finish behind Skovinsky in  the Churchill.  Smiley's  Dream  You'll find the perfect gift  for the perfect Dad  at  7^  S  <Aa/      > '<Kn  II  Cowrie St 885-9330  was overlooked again in the  B.C.Premier's Championship.  He whipped a fine field and  rewarded his backers with a  ridiculous $19.00 payoff. He  wound up with earnings of  $108,577 for the season, almost  $89,000 while racing for the Jawl  Brothers, and was named B.C.'s  Horse of thc Year.  More importantly, in the  Experimented Highweight,  Smiley's Dream tied for second  amongst three-year-olds in Canada, recognition rarely accorded  a horse running anywhere but  in Toronto.  Things looked rosy for 1978.  After a winter's rest, the coll  was in belter shape than ever,  and was being pointed toward  the Portland Meadows Mile.  Unfortunately he developed a  little heal in one leg and the  Portland plans had to he shelved.  When he was well again, Smiley's  Dream lost a couple of spring  stakes, to no one's great surprise.  He prefers to run a distance.  He did, however, come within  a nose of beating the speedy  Alberta Green In one of those  outings.  Not many bettors were put off  by the spring losses when it came  time for thc longer Lieutenant  Governor's Handicap. Thus the  $3.80 win price. One gleeful  fellow heading for the $50.00  cashier defended thc low payoff  to a scoffing bystander: "Oh  yeah? What did the rest of them  pay to win?"  And his payoffs will probably  stay low.

Strikes  and spares  By Bud Mulcaster  We wound up thc year last  Wednesday night with thc playoffs for thc Spring League. The  winners were the Newfies. Gerald  and Rose Martin, Andy and Joan  Seward. They really bowled  well and were 521 pins ahead of  thc second place team, the  4 C's ��� Mike. Paul. Peter and  Laurie Cavalier. It was a good  Spring League and the winners  left with some pretty nice prizes.  The Swingers had their playoffs last Tuesday and the Hot  Shots, Art Teasdale, Ev MacLaren. Phil Fletcher and Inga  Bemhof were the winners. Second place went to thc Halo's,  Art Smith, Charlie Strom, Flo  Gough and Lil Perry.  The YBC Bantam winners  were: for the Jets. Bryon Fitchell, Drew Knowlcds, Grant  Olsen and Suzanne Middlcton;  for the 9:00 a.m. Bantams,  Tracey Skytte, Danny Hurren,  George Williams.

Coast  strokers  Bv Dennis Grav  We met George Sargent on  one of our first bike trips into the  Chilcotins. He is a quiet lonely  man. one of the last frontiersmen  in a forgotten pocket of B.C. and  perhaps a final chapter to the  cowboy and Indian battles,  for he is both Indian and cow- getting bumped on the head in  boy.    It was before wc trusted   some slaughter house and they  country. Everything seems worn  out or trampled and the streams  are all muddied up. Also following a bike along a trail mined  with cow chips in their pre-chip-  py state keeps one busy ducking,  sometimes unsuccessfully; riding  in front you stand a chance of  running into the creatures themselves. Now these cows aren't  the docile dewev-eyed variety  wc were used to seeing. They  are wild animals. They spend  their summer in the mountains  and   see   little  of  man   before  the land enough to turn our backs  to it and get a good night's sleep,  without thc security of a cabin or  tent. It had taken us until late  afternoon to get this far in our  stop and go manner, for there  was always one of us who had to  stop and secure his baggage,  lube his chain, or flick his Bic,  I was hoping to find a cabin or  shelter lo spend the night in and  was getting more than a little  impatient with all the delays.  We were in cow country which  meant flies, also Grizzlies, and  the presence of all three was  obvious.  I don't particularly like cattle  Conner, Jane Lathem and Lori  Skytte.  Our 300 Club Tournament  was held on Sunday. May 28,  and was won by Art Holden. Art  rolled a 3-game total of 890 which  was 230 pins over his average.  Gloria Tourigny was second with  83 pins over and Ralph Roth  was third with 69 pins over.  300 games were rolled by Ralph,  a 310 and Art. a 322. Pretty good  bowling!  Got A Pain In  The Drain?

When we found the lone cabin  it was in a high box canyon which  seemed so out of place and idyllic  as if dubbed in from some romantic novel. Lush-looking, white-  fenced pastures ran up the canyon  walls to a crown of timber around  its rim. Draining this little scoop  of serenity was a clear stream  line with poplars. At the very  centre of the valley partially  hidden by thick pine was the  cabin, its logs as if polished  were glowing golden in the evening sun. Unfortunately there was  no one there. We also found we  had lost our tent along (he way.  As we turned to retrace our  path we all had our own thoughts  about the uncertain night ahead.  This then is when wc met George.  He was returning to the cabin  just before dark. Hc was alone  and I think about as happy to  see us as we were to see him.  He offered to let us bunk up at  the cabin, for which we were  thankful. Although one of a  quiet breed. George later  explained he had just lost his  voice chasing away a Grizzly  from a young calf. Hc had forgotten to take his rifle that  morning and had to holler and  slap his chaps to scare it away.  That night he told us much  about himself and his way of  life. He told us how, not long  ago, there were three cowboys  and a cook to do the job he now  did alone. The next morning  we were aroused before light and  treated lo a meal we will not  soon forget. Stacks of golden  hot cakes, thick slices of ham,  fresh butter, real maple syrup,  fried eggs and hoi coffee. We  often remember that meal, think  about George Sargent and wonder  what we would have done that  night if it were nol for his hospitality.

They have spent some twenty-  five years in as many foreign  countries with those excruciating  problems arising from politics,  poverty and social adjustments  which only too often result in  revolution.  When presenting our observations on our distant and beloved country, we know that we  reflect the feelings of thousands  of our compatriots who, like us,  are engaged in diverse professional activities abroad.  We are also fully conscious  of the many regional, economic  and cultural problems which tend  to divide our nation, but we firmly believe that in reality Canada is  not by any means a dying country. To the contrary, we are convinced that Canada is on the  way to its own Renaissance. As  distance does not allow us to  participate directly in this  awakening, we have wanted to  make our contribution by sending  this letter to the 950 English and  French language newspapers in  Canada.  Wc simply refuse to believe  that Canadians are less intelligent  than other people. Surely Canadians realize that a united Canada  is a strong Canada and that a  divided Canada can only bc a  weak   country   which   projects  are you  Ready  WHY WAIT 'TIL SPRING....DO IT NOWI  * Decorative Fir Bark Mulch  * Top Soil  * Hydro Poles  * Shot Rocks  * Rock Oust for Driveways  * Landscaping B  ���350 & 450 Crawler  ���Extenda-Hoe  ���Dump Trucks  We also install & repair septic fields  Building a new house?

The  disunity of a country, of any  country, only invites lack of  respect abroad for that country.  A divided Canada clearly risks  being absorbed and disappearing  completely in thc big American  melting pot. It is axiomatic that  the unity of a country is intimately  linked to its identity and image  abroad.  The common experience of  your two correspondents demonstrates clearly and abundantly  that acts of goodwill and joint  efforts by the conflicting parties  can only lead to a better mutual  understanding and respect, even  to friendship, with all the advantages this implies. How else  could one explain the durable and  numerous friendships that we  ourselves have developed in so  many countries speaking such  different languages?  It seems to us that the starting point towards unity is a real  and drastic change of attitude  towards languages and a simple  appreciation and recognition of  the advantages which the knowledge of languages carries in  Canada or anywhere else. A  second language is a recognized  necessity for an educated and  cultured person, most particularly when such languages are as  universally used as are English  and French. If the Chinese,  the Russians, thc Germans, the  Americans to be sure, and many  other nations had that same  "lingusitic" opportunity as have  Canadians, you would see how  quickly and efficiently they would  exploit it to their very best  advantage.  It is a matter of meeting the  challenge. Here are a few of the  small and simple means within  the reach of all of us:  1. Post notices at appropriate  places reading: "On parlc  francais" or "English spoken".  2. Write individually or collectively to your Editor, Member  of Parliament. School Board (or  all three) requesting that both  English and French be effectively  taught and used in the first  grades of schools. Our famous  Dr. Penfield has demonstrated  that the ability to learn languages  is greatest in young pupils.  3. Organize and/or support in-  terprovincial visits.  4. Promote the interchange of  language teachers.  5. Increase communication by  organizing pen-pal clubs through  newspapers or schools.  We who live overseas have made  a first gesture by writing this  letter. It is up lo you to ensure  its success through your individual or collective efforts. When  lhal slake is Ihe survival of thc  country, nobody can refuse lo  answer the call or to make an  effort. Long live Canada!  M.F.Rodman.  Santiago de los Caballcros.

Spain  Island Trust  LETTER* ������  We had an Island Trust meeting on Gambier Island last month  the main purpose of which was a  public hearing on the Gambier  Sea Ranch development at the  head of Port Graves Bay (Long  Bay) which they have been  working on for about six years.  It's surprising Ihe things that  came out at that meeting. One  resident twice said that he knew  for a fact Ihat the Highways  Department docs not want to  make any more roads on Gambier  Island. Where does this resident  get his inside information from,  and what a statement to make  about one Government Department to another. And make no  mistake, the Island Trust is  Government. We have about  five miles of road and about  forty vehicles, mostly belonging  to Summer people who park them  for weeks at a time as near to  te wharf as they can get so that  they don't have to walk.  One Summer resident stated  very emphatically that she didn't  want any more roads. Thanks to  the old timers who weren't so  hard boiled and wanted a few  conveniences she had a road on  which to haul Ihe material for  building her house as well as  electricity and telephone. Perhaps she would have preferred  to do what the old timers did  before they got the roads ���  hauled their goods on a horse  drawn stoneboat. Don't suppose  she would know what a stoneboat  was, and what the stoneboat  couldn't lake was packed piece  by piece thc hard way. They  worked to make the Island what  it is, and now wc have a saying,  "the last one on the Island  pulls up the drawbridge". They  don't want anything more, and  don't want anyone else to share  what they have.  M.Dombrowski  H.Negropontc  Gambier Island  Lee replies  Editor:  Anenl the published Letter  from the Tuwanek Ratepayers  Association, and the somewhat  pathetic ' 'editorial *' in the  Peninsula Times. First the "editor" should know better. God  only knows who in thc world  composes such obvious bilge.  Such an admirer of Churchill  that he writes under the banner of  his quotation, should read the  collected works of this great  master of the English language  for his better education. Several  times Churchill points out that  failure to Vote. Public Apathy,  and 'who cares' attitudes were  the root causes of wooly, rotten  legislation, and the primal cause  of the last and the previous war,  and since we are on the subject  and currently reminded, also of  the Holocaust. I among others  am tired of this Media Mandarin's mealy-mouthed meander-  ings.  For the Tuwanek writer who  wishes that I "correct any misunderstandings that thc other  directors or the public might  have", I respond herewith in  chronological order and brevity.  Madam, your association, opposed the rezoning of the Log  Dump, which was by law indicated as Industrial and Jacksons  had the so-called "Grandfather  rights". I became at your behest,  and as the duly elected director  for Area 'C\ involved in listening to your concerns and as 1  happen to believe that the  electors via the director make  the laws, and inasmuch as you  were asking for thc law to be  set aside or not applied, you  should bc well entitled to call  a few bars of the tune, after all  that is the primary reason one  votes for a director, isn't it.  Nothing wrong so far. 1 regarded  you as concerned citizens and  electors, certainly not riders on  the Municipal Bandwagon propelled    into   motion   by   other  Egmont  Because of an outbreak of  chicken pox.

My presentation on your behalf  to thc Regional Board was  defeated 6 votes to 2. The  director who voted with me, and  please mark this, voted on the  basis that he should go along  with the recommendations of  the concerned director, his vote  was not on the issue as such.  We next come to the union of  yourselves and the Sandy Hook  group in thc B.A.BIacktop matter. Le me discuss the trigger  that fired my curiosity as to who  was calling Ihe tunc and waving,  not a baton, but a damned  big stick intimating, sing my  tune or you gct well and truly  clobbered. Now I don't give a  four letter cuss word for the  assinine threat as such, which  for the record, was taken supposedly, and wrongly from the  Municipal Act. During my 68  years I have had a few threats,  and I have learned that it is prudent to appraise thc potential  adversaries, and that is just what  I did. Thc result is now history.  Of Ihe 481 votes cast in Area  'C. the members of your joint  associations cast but b. The huge  proportion of your members who  had so little civic concern as not  lo register as voters is in my  considered opinion appalling.  I came by these figures in a  perfectly normal manner. The  Municipal Act 70 (1) a.b.c.  requires at the Polling Station  the Candidate, a Principal  Agent, an Assistant Agent, and  a possible further Agent to  attend the vote count. The  Assistant Agent is the Scrutineer,  who scrutinizes each Voter, and  checks him against the Voter's  HORSE  RIDING  Supervised trail rides  by appointment  886-2887  or  alternative  886-9033  BOnniCBROOK  RESORT  Create your own home  cooking center  w  ^am    (1   T~i The powered  \T"\ ventilation system  U   is built within the  with JENN-AIR GRILL-RANGE  Jenn-Air s incredibly versatile model  selection lets you create a range to meet  your every need' In cooktops choosr the  beauty ol smooth white glass-ceramic or  t>       Ihe electric conventional-element Simply  * lift out either cartridge to convert your  range to a Char-Flavor grill m  seconds' Convected or Conven  -.     tional radiant heat in your oven at  \      the Hip of a switch1 The Conven-  . \ tional cooks your present  ,\v recipes without change.  --Convected your Jenn-Air  .cooks cooler and (aster  (Turkeys roasts and hams cook  af 50  lower temperature  reducing cooking time  as much as 30V]  range, capturing  smoke and odors  more efficiently  CARPET-CABINET-CERAMIC CENTRE  ���  Highway 101  North Rd., Gibsons  Visit our showroom or phone tor the brochure  describing Jenn-Air's complete line  ot ranges and cooktops  Nothing  "*- 886-2765  STORE HOURS  THURSDAY, FRIDAY.

You will be interested to  note that these Agents swear  "That I will keep secret, and will  not disclose any information  which 1 may receive during  such election as to what Candidate any person votes for."  not very grammatical but as far  as the right to privacy you noted  is concerned, that is the sum  total of it. Now you will remember that Jacksons repeatedly  stated thc numbers of persons  looking to them for employment,  so fair is fair. I checked that  too. Jacksons indicated who  they were, and conclusively  proved their point. Now with  your list of petitioners. Jacksons  dependants, and the Voter's  List and there are the statistics.  My conclusions: It is quite  apparent that your two associations massively omitted to acquire  by exercising your civic responsibility of voting, the election of  a director who might reasonably  be expected to attempt to change,  vary, or set aside the law in  favour of thc electorate. It is my  opinion that you are not the  (in the true sense of the word)  electors and therefore law makers  ipso facto. I am not your agent,  and/or representative, by which  you referred to me. but a duly  elected Regional Director under  the Law. and I give notice that I  will not attempt to change or  vary the law made by past duly  elected directors, for the benefit  of those I believe failed in their  civic responsibilities, but expect  to have a part of changing the  law. On matters of your welfare  and well-being as residents and/  or taxpayers, certainly you can  look to me to forward your leg-  3,1978  11.  itimate and proper concerns.  I am sure you can divine the  distinction therein. ;!���  Your point to the effect thai-  there is more to it lhan appears  is irresponsible and does you jifc  credit, as our Lord said. "There -  are none so blind as those who  won't see".  Of course you arc understandably annoyed. You didn't'  make your objective, but il you  are still not happy you have  (praise be to God) under out.  Participatory Democratic system  thc right to ��� I have forgotten  who said it ��� VOTE THE BASTARDS OUT and by that simple  act you will be a part of lawmaking.  In passing I would like to  mention that I ran for election on  the advice of Mayors Tom Constable and Jack Volrich when  I expressed dissatisfaction with  Regional matters; the effect  being don't bitch and scream  but gct intu the electoral system  and do something about it;  I created mv manifesto, published  it. called on 250 homes, explained  my programme, 2Hl of 481  voters liked it and voted me in.  I am. and will continue to implement every word of it.  Finally, if a similar proportion  to thc Tuwanek and Sandy Hook  Associations had failed to register a vote, my rough estimate  is that 50 voters would have  turned oul rather than the 481  who registered a vote in Area  *C". I pose the question ��� what  price Participatory Democracy  with 50 voters from among  2,300 people with probable  1.870 voters? Charles Lee.

Lockstead  reports  Small and medium-sized lumber operators lace a gloomy  future under the new Forest  Act put before the Legislature  last month by thc Social Credit  government.  Oh there's no gloom in the language of thc bill nor   in the pub  lic relations bows Ihat were  on il when Fores! Minister  Tom Waterland brought it forward. In the accompanying  "highlights" of thc bill, Mr.  Waterland's public relations  man writes: "Parnership in  management between the Crown  ATtfAW���� ^IWWCNr?  By    Kelly    Henry       Grade   9  Elphinstone Secondary School  I believe being part of a family  is thc best thing that could ever  happen to you. Without a family  a mother couldn't bc a mother,  a father would no longer be a  father, and brothers and sisters  wouldn't exist.  Families aren't falling apart as  everyone seems to think. More  than ever now. they're staying  together. Even if the immediate family consists of a mother  and son. it still holds together,  and if the people love and care  about each other, then it's a  family.  Families don't have lo spend  every minute with each other,  sometimes it's better if they  spend time apart, to know that  they miss everybody. This  doesn't mean separale vacations,  it jusl means lime alone.  Vacations arc an important  family adventure. They are  a learning and doing experience  for all. Thai doesn't mean that  going camping will be a learning  experience, it will bc funl (I  personally love going camping!)  Families must work out problems together; how can a family  decision bc called such if "mom  and dad" come oul of thc kitchen  and tell you? I admit they are older and most often wiser, but  still everyone should be involved  in a family decision and everyone  should talk out their problems.  "If you can't talk out your  problems with your family, who  can you talk to?" is a favorite  saying but not necessarily true.  Sometimes it's hard to talk  with mom or dad, so I talk to  my friends, but in the end I  go and talk to mom.  Whether your family is together or apart, consists of two or  ten; if the family can always  communicate or sometimes not,  being in a family is an essential  part of your life.  By. Kester   Tomkies   Grade   3  ;    Madeira Park School  My family is made up of six  people. They are my mother,  father, and my three sisters.  We have a lot of animals. I  won't name them all but I will  name a few.    a horse,  a cat  and a wolf. My dad feeds the wolf  every other day. My sister and  1 feed the rest of the animals.  My mother cleans most of the  house. Sometimes my sister and  I will help her. We all help each  other so that we all live. My  dad is a writer who writes so we  get enough to live.  1 think families are important  because people can learn about  other people and other languages. My mom and dad pay  taxes so their children can go  to school and learn different  subjects or go to different places.  1 think families are important because they can have Christmas  or they probably would not  know about it. Our mom and  dad look after us. They give  us clothes, food, take us to school  when we arc late for school, and  give us shelter, care, help, and  love. Our family will help each  other. My mother looks after  me and my other sisters. We are  very lucky because other children  are dying of no food, clothes,  shelter, love, care, and help. I  will treat my children like my  mom and dad do me. My mom  and dad do a lol of things for  my sisters and mc so we must  help them. We arc quite different  from each other. We have five  girls in our family plus one man.  That is why I think families arc  important.  By Wendy Cummlngs   Grade 6  Madeira Park School  A family is a group of people  that are related. A family usually consists of a mother, father,  sister or brother and so on.  A family starts when two people  fall in love and get married and  if they decide to have children  then they do. So it is carried  on by generations. If people  didn't get married there would  be no families and children  wouldn't get the love and care  they need.  There are lots of families that  barely have enough money to  buy food, some even starve. IF  there are enough jobs people  should work not just sit around  and go on welfare.  Problems are very common in  the family. Like some families, most problems usually are  the same like who's going to do  thc dishes or make supper.  Jealousy is another common  problem. Jealousy usually is  because of another person, especially babies just brought home  irom thc hospital.  Then there are tantrums.  Some are easily controlled and  others aren't. They are usually  caused by someone not getting  his own way or being in a bad  mood.  Birth and death sort of run the  same way. it's like every new  baby born someone dies. If  no one died the world would  soon be over populated.

The occasion wus a mock (lower  show competition with a qualified judge pointing out thc merits  and demerits of thc entries. The  club was fortunate to receive  recently a new member. Mrs.  Montie Dowdie from Prince  Rupert, who is an accredited  judge, having taken thc courses  and examinations as prescribed  by thc B.C. Council of Garden  Clubs. At competitive shows  only thc judge and stewards are  and industry is a major aspect of  the legislation...It is written in a  straightforward manner and  humanizes thc relationship between the Crown and its lieen-  cees."  The Independent Loggers'  Association of British Columbia  was quick to catch the funny  stuff in that statement. In their  critique of thc bill, Ihcy note:  "If the terms 'industry' und  'licenccc' arc used interchangeably and defined us 'present  quota holders' these are indeed  accurate statements. The new-  Act, us proposed, 'humanizes'  the relationship between the  Crown und -the present quota  holders to the virtual exclusion of  all other British Columbians."  There is indeed much in Ihe  new Forest Act thai concerns  the truck loggers and inevitably  all citizens of this province, which  is so dependent on the forest  industry.  For example, thc bill makes  cutting rights, which arc now  short in term, virtually perpetual,  running on a conlinuul renewable  basis for those lew large companies that now lease the rights.  It also denies an opportunity  for newcomers to thc industry.  Another concern of opposition  MLA's. as well as people working  in thc industry, is the provision  that in effect does away with  bidding for trees and this will  leave serious effects on public  revenue.  Backed by the weight of the  Social Credit majority in the  Legislature thai will force its  passage, the new Forest Act  has implications lhal will affect  thc quality of life of many generations of British Columbians.  And these implications arc indeed gloomy.  present when the points and rib-  bons are being awarded but the  departure from this custom enabled the members to get a rewarding insight into the techniques and methods of judging.  Mrs. Dowdie answered many  questions concerning lhc preparation of entries for a show.  Thc club members contributed  much to thc learning exercise  by bringing in some cut flowers,  potted plants, and succulent  collections.  The purpose of the evening's  programme was to continue our  aim of upgrading the quality of  our public flower shows, and  Mrs. Dowdie's contribution to  this aim was most noteworthy.  Members of the club were very  appreciative ol the knowledge  gleaned from her talk. Congratulations to Mr. Tarn Johnson,  our bulletin editor, who arranged  for such ail excellent programme.  Ihe next meeting of the club  will be on September 6 in St.  Hilda's Church Hall, to be followed In the September Flower  Show September Ih in the Senior Citizen's Hall, Sechelt.

Then  there is drugs ��� a little worse.  People like smoking it or taking it  or just like to bc high and relaxed which is a bad influence on  their children.  A happy family does not come  easily. You have to care and help  each other. You musl learn not  to fight but to share and keep Ihe  family together. A family isn't  iust a house with people and thai.  It's togetherness, love and happiness. That. tomC, is a family.
