The proposed transmission  line wu first brought to tht  attention of the Sunshine  Coast Regional District In  1977. Since that time there  have been a number of discussions between the Regional  District and B.C. Hydro  regarding this project designated to meet the projected  energy demand on Vancouver  Island.  On March 31, t public meeting regarding the transmission line was held in the Madeira Park Community Hall. A  final resolution was made to  request t public hearing into  the matter from Rafe Mair  on behalf of the residents of  the Regional District.

In a memo  from Planner Jim Johnstone,  the Area F Advisory Planning  Commission was said to  endorse the route as did the  Elphinstone Settlement Plan  Committee. Gibsons Village  Council prefers a right-of-way  due north along Sunnycrest  without utilizing Gilmour.  The Board directed the  planning staff to inform Highways of the recommendation  for the connector.  Bowen Island's  school future  July 19 was the date agreed  for the next meeting of the  School Board. On that date the  Board will also meet with Dr.  Ian Housego of the Bowen  Island Boundary Commission.  With regard to the twenty-  four questions submitted to  the Board by Bowen Island  residents in their endeavour  to find out whether West  Vancouver or Sechelt School  District can best serve their  children's needs, the Board  accepted the Management  Committee's recommendation  to circulate draft responses to  trustees and prepare them for  formal approval at the next  meeting.  Trustees were amused to  learn that the West Vancouver  School Board has refused to  answer the questionnaire.  As no response either written or telephoned has been  received  by  the  Secretary-  Treasurer re the proposed  change in electoral boundaries, (Trustee Hodgins'  motion suggesting the establishment of the islands in  Howe Sound as a separate  electoral zone, or the more  far-reaching suggestion that  the entire rural area would be  divded into five separate  electoral zones) there wu no  public advice for the guidance  of the Board and it was decided to table the matter until  January. The Board feels  that some public response is  necessary before they make  such decisions and that  maybe they should call public  meetings to determine If  anyone really cares about the  issue of representation.

A great deal of our economic health is tourism and this  is one of the reasons we fight  it," said Alternate Director  MacAllister.

The Board also received  correspondence from Charles  W. Nuh, Vice-President of  Corporate Affairs.  Hydro's Board of Directors  have concluded that Route Alternative AB'C u shown is  preferred. Following the  meeting at Madeira Park  concerning the location of the  proposed 500 kV transmission  line over the Sechelt Peninsula  and Nelson Island, Hydro  gave "careful consideration  to all factors relating to the  various alternatives".  The Hydra Board will recommend tile route to the Environment and Und Use  Committee for final approval  after taking into account  "everyone's views and concerns expressed at all the  meetings".  The now preferred Route  AB'C is intended to reduce  the visual impact by going  generally north from the  crossing and then heading  west behind the ridge, according to Nuh.

Trustees veto herbicide use  "Good for us" cheered  Trustee Hodgins, u the  School Board unanimously  voted to dump the policy for  the minimal use of Herbicides proposed by the Maintenance Department and put  forward by the Management  Committee, to control unwanted growth along fence  lines and in awkward places.  The Spring spraying had  been cancelled following a  plea from the Egmont Community School Association and  their offer to cut the growth  themselves rather than have  herbicides used. CUPE  however refused to allow  volunteer labour on school  grounds thereby adding an  estimated $14,000 to the cost  of maintenance if the weeds  were to be cut by hand.  Trustee Puchalski was willing to accept the extra rost  rather than use herbicides.  Trustee Rottluff expressed  her concern that even though  the Board might do everything  possible to make sure only  the least noxious poisons  were used and that herbicides would only be applied by  trained staff, etc., we still  couldn't be sure that twenty  years down the road the regular application of small  amounts of poison might not  constitute a health hazard.

RCMP interview policy  of   41  Following an incident at  Elphinstone Secondary earlier  this year in which the RCMP  were called in, the School  Board has discussed proper  procedures both with their  Solicitor and the Teachers  Liaison Committee. The Management Committee presented a revised policy to the  June 28th School Board meeting which read u follows:  ''Where a person other than  a teacher is to interview a  student, that interview shall  take place in the presence  of a parent or locum. Where  the parent cannot be contacted, it is the responsibility  of the School Principal to decide on the locum. Following  the interview, principals  are required to make known  to parents or guardians of tne  child the circumstances and  facts relevant to the situation.  Where the interview is a  formal investigation by a  member of the RCMP the  following conditions apply:  a) No student should be  officially interviewed or Interrogated at school by law  enforcement personnel without prior consultation with at  leut one of the student's  parents or guardians.  b) Such a parent or guardian  should be present (as is required in the case of juvenile court) at such an Interview.  c) In the event that a parent  or guardian cannot be contacted by the school, or cannot be present at the interview, and where the RCMP  are not prepared to put off  the formal investigation to  t time when t parent or guardian can be present, then a  teacher shall be present  during the interview.  d) Where the RCMP are  investigating a complaint  made by the School Principal  or other teacher, then the  teacher present at the interview under the provisions of  this policy shall not be the  teacher who made the complaint.  e) Students are clearly subject to the normal responsibilities of any citizen to usist  the police or other authority  where it is established that  the student involved is not  subsequently to be charged  (reference Administrative  Circular 27,5.74).  The policy wu tabled until  September without discussion  to allow for further consideration and input if necessary.  ElphlnslooeFlreAlann  System.  A discussion on ways tad  means to upgrade the fire  and intrusion alarm system  at Elphinstone Secondary  revealed that trustees really  didn't understand fully how  the present system works  and on Trustee Lloyd's  suggestion the Board agreed  to invite the experts to the  next meeting to explain the  system to  them  in  detail.  | Delivered to EVERY address on the Sunshine Coast every Tuesday f  mmmkWm\mmWLmmm..iiimm..m.mL.wmLWL9LmWLimmmmLtmmLWL..^^ Coast News, July 3,1979.  ���f II  A LOCALLY OWNED NEWSPAPER  Published at Gibsons, B.C. every Tuesday,  by Glassford Press Ltd.

Lots of competitors of all ages  and lots of prizes helped to make it so.  This is an idea which seems better as  time passes. Three years ago when it  was first suggested it was a rather quaint  novelty of an idea but now it makes a  fjret't deal of sense. The fish to be caught  arc generally regarded as a nuisance in  this part of the world and everyone who  puts a line in the water can be grateful  that the local population of dogfish is  yearly being held in check.  Further, with salmon stocks seriously  depleted of late, what the coast did not  need was another salmon derby. The  Dogfish Derby provides all the fun of a  fishing derby plus a touch of novelty  plus the removal of hundreds of fish  regarded as a pest and it all adds up to a  winning combination.  Power line unstoppable?  Well, it looks like Bob Bonner and his  engineers are going to have their way.  Despite unanimous opposition to the  giant power line from Cheekeye to Dunsmuir the letter from Environment Minister Rafe Mair to the Regional Board last  week saying that no further public  hearings are necessary would seem to  indicate that there will be a power line  crossing Sakinaw Lake.  Again, one is forced to the bitter conviction that the whole time-consuming  business of public consultation wu  nothing more than a charade. Hydro  and apparently the provincial cabinet are  convinced that the line is necessary in  order that Vancouver Island will have  adequate power in the 1980's. None of  the opponents of the line wish Vancouver  Island to be without power but questioned whether power could not be manufactured on Vancouver Island from materials presently going to waste.  The opponents of the line generally  raised questions of a conserving nature.  Can waster materials be used to create  power? Should not Hydro encourage  power conservation by moving to a rate  structure which does not give favourable  treatment to the maximum users of  power?  Whether or not this line is built these  are questions that B.C. Hydro is going to  have to face before too much time has  elapsed. Fast-moving events in the world  of international oil are telling us all that  a conserver philosophy is going to be  necessary for our very survival and the  longer the delay in the development of  such attitudes the greater will be our  difficulties.  In the meantime, the charade of public  consultation appears to be over and the  power line is going to be built. It is for us  to take our lumps, endure the eyesore,  struggle along under the Hydro debt  load, and await the 'public consultation'  which will precede the arrival of the nuclear power stations that the Power Corporation chairman assures us we will get  whether we like it or not.  What about the drop-outs?  A rather innocent inquiry of the School.,  Board started a train of thought on which  we would welcome some comment.  We realize that school is out and perhaps  that is a better time to ask the question  wc have on our mind.  Ihe question we began with was  "What percentage of students drop-out  or leave school before graduating from  high school?" From an administration  spokesman we got the information that  official provincial percentage as released  by the Department of Education is that  3.8% of all the students in all the grades  drop-out. This didn't seem very satisfactory since attendance is compulsory  for most of those grades. A school trustee  volunteered to give us the total number of  Grade Twelve students that started the  school year to be compared with the number that graduated. This didn't seem very  enlightening either since most of the high  school students who leave school do so in  Grades Nine, Ten, and Eleven.    ...  We would suggest that a reasonable  grasp of the problem could be gained if  we were to compare the number of students who enter high school in Grade  Eight with the number of graduates from  Grade Twelve. Of course, some are transferred to other schools but some are  transferred from other schools into the local schools so for the purpose of a usable  estimate the transferees can be ignored.  Comparing the entering Grade Eights  to the graduating Grade Twelves, then, it  would seem that possibly 30%, or approximately one student in three leaves  high school feeling that either he/she  cannot learn or that what is to be learnt  is of no value. Given the cost of education and Canada's crying need for young  people with employable skills, this seems  like a staggering failure rate. We would  welcome comment.  from the files of Coast Nam  'e(  FIVE YEARS AGO  The Council of Forest Industries  announces that a boom Inspection  patrol will be operate In the Howe  Sound area to combat floating debris.

There and only there did I  find the sea to be a fascinating  and a comforting medium.  The urge remains, however,  and any day now I will 'screw  my courage to the sticking  place' and immerse myself  in the waters of the Pacific  Ocean. It will be painful going  in, briefly exhilarating, and  promptly chilling and I will  emerge for another year to  dry myself quickly, lie low  out of the sea-breeze and  dream dreams of the Mediterranean.  When it isn't the Mediterranean it is dreams of hot  pools to which I turn. In my  to-an-froing across the northern half of North America  there are few hot pools into  which I haven't sunk with  unspeakable gratitude.  Perhaps my favourite,  though this is difficult to say,  is the hot pool at Radium Hot  Springs, up the Columbia  Trench from Cranbrook and at  the gateway to that magnificent national park in eastern  B.C. whose name, alas,  escapes me. When I lived in  the Crowsnest Pass I made  frequent sorties to Radium  Hot Springs. Perhaps the  zenith of these experiences  came in the winter months.  The steam from the pool  melted the snow on the hillsides just immediately above  it and mountain sheep came  down close to graze on the  exposed foliage. It was akin to  my idea of Paradise to float  there in the blessedly warm  water watching through the  steam as the creatures of the  wild grazed just a few yards  but I can remember a glorious  sunset a few years ago with  the last rays of the setting  sun catching the hot pool  while just beside it the mountain reared gloomy and shadowed with the ice-cold torrent of a mountain creek  roaring by within easy stone's  reach of the hot water that I  loved. ���  My enthusiastic yearning  highway, was improved or for hot water goes back to the  developed but it was the un- Spartan swimming program  improved one a half a mile I endured at high school,  further in that I liked.

I feel the urge and heed  in the winter. You opened the  the pressure but I know with  changing room door and there  were steps which led directly  into the water. Even at forty  below it was comfortable  and once I got sufficiently  brave to emerge from the  water and roll in the snow  before hurling myself back  into the soothing warmth.

Then, all those  human creatures reaped the  harvest of the tree of knowledge and invented science,  just to make life a little  easier. Ever since, man and  science have fought tooth and  nail to see just who ran who.  An interesting feature of  the struggle is that the scientists are never quite satisfied in the most scientific  of times and the humanists are  never happy in the most humanistic of times. All in all,  we've spend the past 30,000  years swinging between ages  of humanism and science.  Right now, we're in an age  which is tending toward the  scientific.  An example of the trend is  the current attitudes of university students. When I first  went to university, the people  I hung around with never  thought about putting their  knowledge to some practical  use, like work. They not  only never thought about  applying their knowledge,  they didn't want to work.  These days, the tone on campus is very different.  I'm going back to university myself for a year, and I've  been out to the campus and  I've talked and listened to the  new breed. I hadn't been  around a university for ten  years and the difference is  mystifying. It is, as I suggested before, the difference  between science and humanism.  Today's student is scientific and career oriented.  Most people would suggest  this is a good thing; I'm not  so sure. Certainly the old  days of airy fairy, liberal  arts, ivory tower academia  was sloppy and often unproductive but if a university,  in the true sense of that word,  is supposed to be a place of  learning and not training,  then our universities have  missed the boat.  Let me illustrate the contrast between the old student  {generation and the new,  magine yourself sitting  around the coffee shop after  class listening to students  talking. In the old days it  would sound something like  this.  "Hey man, I just had Dr.  Sanskrit's lecture on erotic  mysticism in Zorastrian  poetry. Is that guy brilliant.  I can see now I've been wasting my time in Zen Buddhism  300."  "How can you talk about  Zen Buddhism when the workers in Kuala Lampor have  been on a hunger strike for  three weeks. Trotsky would  roll over in his grave If he  could hear you now."  "Yeh but I must find self  fulfillment before I can be of  value to our struggling brothers in the third world."  "You've been co-opted by  the bourgeois task masters.  Unless you dedicate yourself  to the liberation of suppressed minorities every*  where, your self-fulfillment  will be of no value. My sociology prof, who is a Marxist,  says that mysticism is the new  opiate of the masses."  "Well, let's talk  about it after the sit-in  tonight. I've got an essay  due in for my Comparative  Oriental Literature 403 course,  but that shouldn't take more  than twenty minutes. Let's  go have a beer."  "Right on brother."  Same coffee shop, ten yeari  later;  "Hi, I've only got a minute  but I need some help with  my research in Linguistics  Statistics 201. Apparently  systematized reciprocal  programming does not compute with the principles of  co-variance and if I want to  account for futuristic logistical  capability, I'm going to have  to write a new program for  the computer."  "I read you. Your heuristic  monitored projection is out of  phase with the fortran digital  flexibility. I have a recent  M.I.T. study which deals with  that contingency. The research I'm doing for I.B.M.  and Dow Chemical has run  into a similar problem."  "Well, unless I develop a  functional model to isolate  the variables, I can forget  about doing my M.A. in tile  linguistic analysis of high  mobility executives."  "In terms of career expectations, that sounds like a  dysfunctional study. Yoe  should be analysing low echelon speech patterns Instead,  that way you got an automatic  in with I.T. andT. or even  G.M."  "Maybe I'd better put k  on the back burner till after  my Managerial Composite  Workshop. Leg's go have a  beer."  "That computes."  Everything considered,  neither conversation sounds  very hopeful. There's a fine  line between science and  humanity. In either case one  has not done much to help  the other. All I can hope for  is to develop some compatible  transitional flexibility so I can  survive the new generation of  university students.  gffljBjEjjjjgi mimmmmvmmmmm^amm  Coast News. June 3,1979.

More than 1,250 men,  women, and children are  benefitting from the special  international project which  aided the lowest income families of the 85,000 whose  homes were levelled. These  are families without financial  or material resources needed  to rebuild, and who were in  desperate need of housing.

Of course  the Minister of Immigration  and all others responsible  for bringing in the hoards  are smiling and happy.  What single luxury, pleasure,  or desire of their hearts will  they forgo?

Over the subsequent  months, I began to adjust to  >     Thursday,  Friday,  Saturday  July 5,6,7..  Pages  from a Life-Log  Peter Trower  /  f��  *  1 PERIRSULH  BQTEL  an essentially-impossible  situation. The rug itself was  a personal problem, right from  the start. Obviously something tied to your head with  whatever dexterity, was not  a normal thing. Still, I attempted to exist normally in  a wholly unreal position. It  wasn't just the social pressures, the very upkeep of the  hairpiece was a constant  problem. Daily shampooing  was required. Despite this,  some of the sutures became  septic. After all, they were  in effect, open wounds.  The damn thing itched,  infected and began to cause  considerable discomfort.  Sleeping was difficult. Despite a satin pillow, even  turning over in your dreams  could wrench the sutures.  The whole thing was a bizarre  ordeal, practised for the sake  of misguided vanity.  Madly enough I became  conditioned to it for awhile.  The human body and persona  can adjust to damn near  anything, even an off-the-wall  mess like this. The rug  gradually became part of my  life. The sutures ceased getting infected. I was actually  living and surviving with the  goddamn thing. But it cost  periodic bucks because I  had to go back to the cosmic  people and get it reconditioned every once in a while.  Peculiar things would  happen. Once I was sitting in  the Alcazar with a number of  friends. A guy sat down  dead across from me. He was  wearing a rug just like me.  We studied each other, One  thing you learn very graphically from this experience is  to spot another toupee. You  never miss. He was just as  hip to me as I was to him.  My defensive ploy in those  years, was to direct the conversation away from the very  mention of hair. But the guy  kept looking at me and I  kept looking at him. Finally  he said: "I'll admit I'm  wearing a rug but the cops are  onto me and I have to do a  cover-up." His wig was truly  tacky (much worse than mine)  but I couldn't tell him that.  I said: "A rich lady bought me  mine and talked me into  wearing it." I don't think  either one of us believed the  other.  1 truly began to adjust to  the rug. My journal for 1974,  barely mentions the traumas  or discomforts, they must  have been minimal. I literally  lied myself into accepting it  all for a while. But I was  oppressed with moments of  doubts at regular intervals.  You just weren't supposed to  do this sort of thing in the  harsh light of reality. There  was something intrinsically  dishonest about it.  In 1975, I made a short  logging film for the CBC  and this was the only period  when I felt semi-justified in  sporting a hairpiece. I was  supposed to be playing myself  in my early twenties and the  presence of spurious hair  seemed curiously apt. But  it presented certain problems  even there. We were cruising  up the coast in a couple of  small boats and I had to insist  on making landfall every  couple of days, in order to  wash the wretched wig.  Fortunately, my producer  had contact-lenses and a  roughly-similar problem so  we managed to work things  out. But an anchored appliance is no sort of thing to  be wearing in the woods. It  was perpetually getting  snarled-up in branches and  presented a constant hazard.  Back in real-life, the rug  continued to obscurely gripe  me. Straightforward friends  were constantly advising me  to get rid of the goddamn  thing. "It's messing up your  head" they said and they  weren't too far from wrong.  I   began   to   ponder   such  philosophical problems as  whether a writer could run  around like a bargain-basement movie-star and still  remain sincere. It was a real  conundrum. But I had been  trapped in the wig for over  three years now and it was  hard to kick the habit.  Finally, the rug-company  more or less solved the problem for me. They Initiated  an entire new process Involving skin-grafts and  another couple of thousand-  bucks outlay. Mrs. Grauer  had ceased being my patron  iy this time and I simply  didn't have the bread. I  continued to wear the obsolete  piece however, despite constant letters from Cosmic  Hair, claiming that I was the  only person left on their list  of rugheads who hadn't  converted to the new system.  I didn't answer the letters.  And then the thing began to  self-destruct. Two of the sutures came out of their own  accord and the hairpiece  started to flap around like  an old shirt in the wind. It  was just about game-over  for pointless and unaffordable  vanity. I cut the remaining  sutures with a pair of scissors,  threw the damn toupee in a  drawer and went back to  wearing a cap. Hell, it felt  great. It was just like getting  out of jail.  tlfH��M*MH  Ellingham >  '    Astrology  Bill Edney, Mayor Blair and Bruno Gerussi broadcasting their greetings to Happy Valley, Nfld.

Carefree gardenin  By Sandy Loam  Ahead, this month, is the  interesting task of revamping,  clearing and replanting an old,  neglected garden.

Elphinstone  Order of the Eastern Star  IP  July 7,1979   2-4p.nO  Masonic Hall, Roberts Creek  Adults   75��  Children Under 12  35��t  Mystery Prizes,  Novelties, Draws. mm  Bookman's Corner  Raincoast Chronicles #8 available  Coast News, July 3,1979.  5.  By John Moore  The eighth issue of the  K-aincoast Chronicles is now  available at your local bookstores, so if you haven't got a  subscription, get out and get  yourself a copy. Almost all  back issues are now out of  print and collector's items.  This issue, like the past seven,  offers a fascinating range of  history, reminiscence, anthropology, fiction, and  poetty.  It begins with A.J. Spils-  bury's reminiscence "Float  Planes and Snow", which concerns the hilarious and often  dangerous misadventures of  Bush-Pilots (and the occasional unfortunate newspaper  man) experimenting with  novel ways of maintaining air  service to areas made inaccessible by winter weather.  Spilsbury's description of the  technique of landing float-  equipped planes on snow-  fields and glaciers; the jerry-  rigging skill and invention  that was often necessary to  get airborne again, and the  hot water they found themselves in when these haywire  activities came to the attention of the authorities, conveys the genuine hair-raising  flavour of the innovative seat-  of-the-pants flying-style of  the bush pilots. To the authorities these carryings-on may  have looked like so much reckless barnstorming, but the  bush pilots, and the shoestring airlines for which they  flew, were often the only  lifeline of the isolated camps  and settlements on this coast.  Their imaginative unorthodox  ways of overcoming the formidable natural obstacles they  faced testify not to their  reclessness, but to their dedication.  Spilsbury's article is followed by Peter Trower's  "The Lookout Tree", a dramatization of the tragic  murder-suicide that took  place up on Elphinstone  Mountain during the first  World War. The first time I  heard this story I was sitting  out a cold rainy day in Pete's  cabin, I must've caught a  chill because 1 still shiver  everytime I look up at that  mountain. Another violent  episode in the history of this  coast is the subject of George  Woodcock's article "The Little  Bear That Runs Up Trees".  The title is a translation of the  name of Gun-an-noot, known  as Simon Gun-an-noot, the  Gitskan man who was accused  of murdering two men near  Hazelton on the same night  in 1906. Though there were  no witnesses to the crime,  Simon Gun-an-noot had  tangled with one of the men  at a tavern earlier the same  day. The inquest named him  as the probable killer and he  vanished from the community,  though not from men's minds,  for thirteen years. During that  time his legend grew, partly  as a result of several major  R.C.M.P. expeditions that  failed even to glimpse him  while he, aided by the local  trappers, tracked his pursuers. Though he had many  opportunities to do so, Simon  Gun-an-noot never fired a  shot at his pursuers. When  he finally emerged from the  bush more than a decade  later, he came armed, not with  a gun, but with money from  furs sold by proxy; enough  money to buy himself a good  lawyer and beat the rap.  Woodcock's article unravels  the myth that has grown up  around Simon Gun-an-nnot,  offering insights into the way  myths and legends are created  and a fascinating portrait  of a wise and resourceful  man.  Thorn Stitt's article "Sweet  Wort and Sour Krout" sheds  light on a less well-known  facet of Captain Cook: Cook  the scientist. Cook's reputation as an explorer has largely  overshadowed the fact that  he was one of the rare captains  dedicated to the welfare of  his men. He recognized the  importance of fresh air and  cleanliness below decks and  experimented with dietary  measures to control the outbreak of scurvy, the disease  that was the scourge of the  great age of Naval exploration.  Of equal historical interest  is Beth Hill's "If Such a  Frightful Appendage Can Be  Called Ornamental", which  draws on the diary of Frances  Barkley, the first European  woman to visit the Northwest Coast. On her second  visit in 1792 she encountered  the Tlingit people and recorded her disgust at their  custom of painting their faces  red and black with red ochre  and a mixture of charcoal  and seal grease. She was  particularly appalled by the  popularity of the Labret;  the wooden ornament inserted  to   extend   the   lower   lip.  Labrets occur prehistorically  and historically in such diverse areas as Northern  Japan, Siberia, Central  America, and West and Central Africa. Beth Hill observes  rather pointedly that Frances  Barkley seems to have completely failed to recognize  the importance of the Labret  as a symbol of social status  and the red and black paint  as cosmetics, which in fact  they were. Rather odd, as  Hill points out, at a .time  when European women were  smearing their faces with a  lead-based cosmetic which did  irreparable damage to their  complexions, all in the name  of fashion.  The issue also contains an  excerpt from Bus Griffith's  magnificent illustrated novel  "Now You're Logging".  This segment, titled "The  Old Chinese Shlnglebolt  Camp" should be of (pedal  interest to students of logging  history on this cout. There  is a biographical portrait of  the enigmatic cout writer  M. Wylie Blanchet, author of  The Curve of Time, by Edith  Iglaur Day, and a previously  unpublished short story  "Henry Finds the Roar"  by "Capi"Blanchet herself.  There are poems by Earie  Birney, John Skapski, Julia  Moe and George Woodcock,  a short story by Myrtle  Bergren and a tribute to the  grand old lady of the B.C.  Towboat Fleet, the "Brunette", by Howard White.  In his opening editorial,  editor Howard White makes  some observations on a  psychological phenomenon  peculiar to this cout which  he calls "Ruper's Complaint", after the English Poet  Rupert Brooke who recorded  his own sumptoms after a  brief visit here in 1909.  "A European requires haunted woods, the friendly presence of ghosts. Here one is  perpetually a first comer."  Even those who grant the  country "Rich In Stories"  find It "Destitute of Legend",  but u Howard White points  out, "You cannot see the  ghosts or learn the legends of  a place unless you are willing  to do so." If you are willing,  a subscription to the Raincoast  Chronldea is the best edge  you could have. It's a sure  cure for Rupert's Complaint.  Sunshine Coast Homemakers are pictured In the Senior Ctlzens' Hall In Sechelt  after a dinner held In their honour.  Navy Band appreciative  Local entertainment scene  Noteworthy performers  By Allan J. Crane  As the second full week of  Summer and the first week of  July commence on the Sunshine Coast, live entertainment is showing signs of expansion in Gibsons, Roberts  Creek and Sechelt. During  earlier months, it wu often  possible to hear dance bands  of varying degrees of competence at the Royal Canadian  Legions in both Gibsons and  Sechelt and occasionally at  the Roberts Creek Community  Hall during weekend nights.  From time to time, the neighbourhood pubs in these  communities booked bands  for weekends also or solo  entertainers. The quality and  the variety of entertainment at  the various neighbourhood  pubs in Gibsons, Roberts  Creek and Sechelt this week,  however, hu .been noteworthy, and the- tendency  now seems to be to book  entertainment for weekdays u  well u the weekends.  From Tuesday, June 26  until Saturday, June 30, at  the Peninsula Hotel a group  called the Westemalres were  making their own special  blend of old time country and  western music along with a  variety of rock and roll music.  From Roberts Creek, the band  is going to Vancouver to play  at the Waterfront Corral on  Powell Street from July 1 to  July 6. John Wood, who plays  lead and rhythm guitar and  also handles the vocals, told  the Coast News that the band  was a fairly new group who  have been playing together,  mostly in Vancouver, since  March, The other members of  the group consisted of Bruce  Cowan on bass, "Chico" on  drums, "Bugeye" on lead  guitar, and Kelley Tregar who  tinkled the ivories in the good,  old, honkey tonk style. The  group wu obviously well  rehearsed, and was greatly  enjoyed by the clientele.  Hans Meier was the featured entertainer at The  Cedars lut week, and he will  continue to entertain all  comers from Wednesday,  July 4 until Saturday, July 7,  when he leaves for an engagement at the Travelodge in  Surrey. Always wiiling to  entertain requests, Hans  refused to sing any of Elvis  Presley's songs. "We can't  sing Elvis," he said. "He's  dead." But sing, Hans  certainly did. A most talented  entertainer, this man has a  rare gift of establishing a fine  rapport with his audience,  and his personal song book  contains over 350 titles  encompassing a great variety  of styles.  Coming originally from  Northern British Columbia,  Hans has been a professional  entertainer for eight years.  He terms himself a gentleman  balladeer and his repertoire  ecompasses old Irish ballads  u well u some of the songs  popularised by the late, great  Josh White. It might bc interesting to know just how many  of Oscar Brand's "Bawdy  Songs and Backroom Ballads"  Hans knows. I'll warrant he  knows a few that the older  singer does not knowl  John Duffy, who comes  originally from Newcastle,  England, hu been delighting  the crowds at the Wakefield  Inn, and will no doubt continue to do so since he is to  entertain there again from  Wednesday, July 4 until  Saturday, July 7 this week.  John had a good memory u  a child, and he knows, he  says', over a thousand songs.  Accompanying himself on a  twelve string guitar, he regrets that he might now remember only about 500 of  those songs! There is no lack  of variety here. Would you  like to sing along with "The  Black Velvet Band"? Dance  to one of the Beatle's oldies?  John can provide this and  much more. His own particular favourites seem to be the  genuine Irish folk songs, and  this versatile performer captivated his audience with a  performance of an ancient  Irish air which he played on  the traditional penny whistle.  1  had  forgotten  that  such  For all your Carpets  oosheen  CWf"    - .jid-UP  No  Soap  Bu  *������:  *����  iWS  &&  U'  T.

I tried to  get the spelling for the title  of this lovely modal melody  from my resident Irish expert,  Patrick Joseph Murphey,  but unfortunately although not  unexpectedly, he could not  understand my Gaelic mispronunciation.  It is indeed delightful to be  able to write of this fine entertainment, but I do feel obliged  to add a cautionary note based  on my own experience. The  entertainment available is  at establishments where alcoholic beverages are sold,  and the single highway between Sechelt and Gibsons is a  dangerous one. Understandably, the local RCMP are vigilant for impaired drivers,  and quite justifiably the  Sechelt County Court Is not  sympathetic to drivers who  are convicted of alcohol  related offences. But the  neighbourhood pubs also  sell non-alcoholic beverages,  and the Sunshine Cout is  fortunate in having excellent  taxi service. Perhaps in the  not-too-distant future, we will  be blessed with a public  transportation system between West Sechelt and Langdale, but unless this becomes  a reality the only viable way  to get ourselves back and forth  from points on the Sunshine  Cout Highway is by the omnipresent automobile. In order  to minimize the ever present  hazards, a safe and sober  driver Is essential.   Organizers of the Sunshine  Cout Navy League Band wish  to express publicly their  appreciation to Bill Edney,  owner of Ken's Lucky Dollar  Market in the Lower Village,  for the presentation to the  band of band instruments.  The band equipment consists of glockenspiels, cymbals, side drums and most importantly, a junior size base  drum which a smaller person  can handle with cue. The  instrument donation, worth  well over a thousand dollars,  assures the Navy League Band  of more than enough equipment to cover any fiiture expansion of the band. The  enlargement of the band  seems necessary because of  the number of young people  asking to join.  ' Although the negotiations  for a youth group building to  house the Navy League,  Scouts, Cub, Guides, etc. are  coming rapidly to fruition,  the Navy 'League hu been  parading at Ken's Lucky Dollar Auditorium in Gibsons,  since its inception.  The free use of the Auditorium, the generous donation  of certain band equipment und  many other very welcome  gratuities from Bill Fidney  certainly gives heart to many  other people to put forth the  effort to insure the continuance of this much needed  group activity in car community.  Those Navy League band  members who pus fairly  simple proficiency tests are  eligible for regular navy summer camp instruction at the  naval establishment on  Quadra Islnnd.  The Sunshine Coast Navy  League hu laid on a seamanship course for the coming  season which would teach and  qualify young people to handle  boats under sail or power,  plus all the courtesies, survival skills, rules of the sea.  Although the Navy League 885-5144  has  "stood down" for the  summer, the band will meet  for practice throughout the  summer.  Anyone seeking information  can contact Mr. Lloyd Hicks  by phoning 886-7409.  Homemakers  honoured  The Sunshine Coast Home-  maker Service held a dinner  on June 15th, 1979 at the Sechelt Senior Citizens Hall in  honour of the Homemakers  and to say "thank you" to  them for their work in the  community.

In Christ's service  Church in exciting time  By Rev, George W. Inglis  Sunshine Cout  United Ouches  The church today is facing  one of the greatest challenges  in its 2,000-year history - how  to make the faith of its fathers  into a sparkling and challenging movement with relevance for the space-age  society.  This is not the first time the  church has had movements  within its ranks, aimed at  pulling up its historical,  theological or traditional  socks and moving it from an  entrenched position behind  man made walls, out into the  world where it was in the days  of Jesus' ministry on earth.  Some of the other movements,  such as the Humanist movement, the Protestant Reformation of Luther, Calvin and  Zwingli, the Wesleyan awakening in Great Britain, the  Moravian Pietist movement,  the funa.dmentalist and Holiness Cht'rch movements in  the U.S., h ad a tightly defined  area in whioh they were effective.  Today, however, electronic  wizardry has so shrunken  the globe tha.t we here on  the Sunshine Ccmst are almost  instantly aware of things that  happen in Nicaragua, South  Africa, Palestine or Peru,  often before we know of things  that happen right t.>ext door  to us.  It is no longer possible to  shut out the world beyond our  immediate borders and focus  on our own problems, especially if we wish to bear the  burdens of Christ, and ca.try  the story of his gospel in.to  all the world, and to all  people. The hunger in the  Third World, the violence in  the Middle East and Central  America, the political unrest  and government chicanery  in South America and other  Helen's Fashion  Shopjw  SUMMER  CLEARANCE  SALE   I  STARTS  Thursday, July 5th  Tops  Slacks     Sandals  Sundresses  Two Stores to Serve You  Gibsons 886-9941 Sachalt 885-9222  troubled zones are brought  right home to us, in the smallest congregation with the  most modest means, and the  question looms large - "How  do we act in obedience to  Christ's command to love?"  It becomes a gigantic task  for churchmen and women of  humble upbringing and modest understanding of world  affairs, to know just eiactiy  whether it is their responsibility to work on social action  within their own community,  concentrate on building up  and revitalizing the dwindling  congregation, or to step out  in some fashion and take a  hand in world affairs. It would  take the wisdom of Solomon  (as reputed), the genius of a  statesman, the knowledge of  a diplomat, and yet it falls to  humble church boards, sessions, committees and presbyteries to make monumental  decisions affecting the large  body of faithful believers of  the Christian church.  It would not be quite so  crucial if the church were  dealing from a position of  power t'tself, but it is in fact  undergoing a vital time of  questioning and examination,  and for the first time in  centuries, i's truly a member  of a minority group.  Regrettably, the flood of  knowledge of global affairs  which has ma'de even tiny  congregations aware of their  world responsibility, has also  made them aware of the decline and demise of the church  in many areas, and the result  is often a curious mil of outreach commitment and inward-looking stewardship.  This has had a divisive  effect in many of the larger  churches, has all but stifled  the missionary societies of  many churches, and has  created a polarity of ideas at  a time when the focus should  be unwaveringly and powerfully on unity, and ecumenism  fully on unity, and ecumenism, with the whole church's  resources pooled in the fight  against social injustices and  world poverty.  Fortunately, however, the  church is not dependent  entirely on the decisions,  actions and wisdom of humans, and therefore, right  alongside this tension-filled  and sometimes desperate  awareness of the church's  inadequacy to rectify the  world's problems, there is a  powerful and swelling movement of the Spirit of Pentecost, out of which the church  was born in the Upper Room  in Jerusalem in the 1st century A.D. This great ground-  swell of faith in the efficacy of  God's Holy Spirit to empower  life to great achievements,  even "faith so as to move  mountains," (1 Cor. 13:2),  has had s vivid and electrifying efect on the church,  Coming, as it has, in the  dwindling years of the drastic  60's, it has moved the church  forward with dramatic and  sometimes painful surges,  right into the middle of a  movement of reawakening  and reassessment.  Probably the most exciting  part of the new movement,  triggered and spurred on as  it is, by the Spirit of Pentecost, is its appeal to the young  people, the new breed of  space age young people, to  whom the electronic age is  almost passe, and in whose  hands lies the responsibility  of a world which has been  unwisely raped of its resources and is rushing along  blithely on a collision course  with ecological disaster.  The task is one which is  aptiy suited for youth, with all  the energy to engage the problems head-on and courageously, but the wisdom that  is needed to effect the proper  balance between change and  retention of tradition-history,  is the wisdom which comes  with much living and experience. The success of the  church to meet the space-  age needs and continue to  be relevant may very well lie  in the ability of the church  to meld and use effectively  the resources from both ends  of its reform-spectrum.  It is, indeed an exciting time  to be. a. member of Christ's,  church in the World!        *    f  Local wood carver  hard at work  By Can! Baffler  Ernie Burnett bends over one of the 50 carvings he  carves every month. The long-time Sunshine Coast  resident now sells his wares out of The Woodcarver  on Sechelt's Cowrie Street.  Educational commandments  When Ernie Burnett tells  you that he's been carving for  47 years he points to a scar  that marks the start of it all.  "My mother was going to  take me to the beach and I  had to have a boat. This four-  inch scar on my thumb was  the result of it," he explained.  Burnett, 56, has lived on  the Sunshine Coast for 22  years. Up until five weeks ago  the sale of his woodcarving  was done out of his studio  on Lockyer Rosd. Today he  operates out of The Wood-  carver in Sechelt offering  a wide range of carved pieces  as well as basketry, painted  shells and other handcrafted  articles.  He manages to carve at  least 50 pieces a month;  each drawn and carved separately. Much of the wood that  he uses is taken from beach  and bush area; cedar and pine  while Jeluton from Malaysia  is purchased in Vancouver.  In his younger years Burnett lived in an Indian reservation in the Fraser River  area. His work reflects that  Indian influence, but he  adds, "I like to mix in Polynesian, cougars, bears, whatever."  Among the many handmade  tools he uses is the Adze;  an eight-inch carving tool  used like a pick. He is one of  the few remaining Adze  users.  "Now they go in for using  power saws. I found I could go  far faster and get better detail  using the Adze."  Before coming to Sechelt,  Burnett resided in a houseboat  in Gibsons. Reminders of his  stay remain carved into the  wharf including a Polynesian  head and a killer whale.  After selling his houseboat  Burnett moved into a van.  The cupboards, wood moldings and walls inside all  carry the carving of Burnett.  He is now completing a house  near his studio already filled  with carved masks, figurines  and ships.  "I guess I'm more or less  self-taught. I make a living at  it but it is tough going. I  guess when you really like  doing it, it's a whole part of  your life. You just can't  give it up anyway."  Among his more unusual  works was one for a subdivision on Bowen Island. "I  did a 25-foot high woman from  the shoulders up with an eagle  on the top; wing spread of  five feet, to go with a 25-foot  sign. It's really something,"  hesaid.  Twelve years ago Burnett  was commissioned to do the  entire inside of an English  pub.  "I looked at him and said,  'An English pub, but in England?'" recalled Burnett.  A West Coast theme was  done complete with masks and  spear then shipped over for  placement.  "That's one place I would  love to see. So if you're ever  in a pub in England done in  West Coast style..."  Schools should be first priority  ��� Minimum '5000.00  deposit  ��� 90 or 120 day  Term Deposit  Sunshine Coast Credit Union  W\  Cowrie Street, Sechelt  Tel: 885-3255  By Maryanne West  The comments of adults  during this year I've been a  student at Elphinstone  Secondary have been interesting. (The students, perhaps  psely, have kept their  thoughts to themselves!)  Adult reaction ran the gamut  from "Isn't that nice, you've  so much experience to share  With the kids" Ot turned out  quite the other way around. I  learnt far more from them  than they could possibly have  learnt from me); to "The kids  seem to spend all their time  jogging or lounging around in  the Mall these days"; to a lady  at the Horseshoe Bay Terminal who was literally horrif-  fted that any self-respecting  adult would have anything to  do with today's teenagers who  she asserted were "all spaced  out."  There seems to be some  lack of communication add  understanding between the  community at large and the  school community. A situation  in which everyone loses,  especially the kids.  I'm sure growing up has  always been a difficult process, fraught with dangers  and frustrations. Which of us,  given the chance would want  to relive adolescence? But  today's teenagers have many  extra pressures to cope with,  a society which is so fluid  and changing so fast that few  of the old landmarks and stabilizing factors remain.  Schools inevitably will reflect society and the community they serve, and who really  can predict what sort of  world these young people  will Inherit? More than ever  surely schools and educators  need the support of their  communities.  Ernest Boyer, Commissioner of Education for the U.S.  Government thinks the present high schools, (he's  talking about U.S. comprehensive schools) are becoming  obsolete. Interestingly he  was speaking to a National  Conference on Public Confidence and the Schools.  Worried by the obvious fact  that schools are not meeting  the needs of many students -  the national average for dropouts is twenty-five percent  and in some urban areas as  high as fifty percent - he  suggested "There should be  more specialized programs  in high schools that relate to  the special interests of students, specialties in the arts,  sciences, health care, so that  students will be able to concentrate in areas that touch  their own interests and lives."  The most rewarding aspects  of the specialized course in  communications which I was  taking was being able to watch  kids come alive, change overnight from sleepers to leaders  in the class. As one Boy remarked reflectively to himself  coming back from a sunny  Saturday spent indoors filming a public meeting, "And  I'd never have taken this class  if the counsellor hadn't  persuaded met"  As might be expected  trouble in the school system  shows up first in urban areas,  but all schools wilt reflect the  problems to a certain extent  depending on the stability  and concern of the local  community.  The Americans, obviously  have to come to grips with  such issues on a large scale,  but their ideas may be of  interest to us.  The Vice-President for  Education and Research at  the Ford Foundation, Harold  Howe, apearing recently  before the U.S. Senate  subcommittee on Education  suggested what he called  "Howe's ten commandments  for improving fundamental  learning." They make an  interesting start for discussion  in any community concerned  about its children's future.  "1. Put more time, effort  and money into helping teachers contend with their difficult task.  2. Invest in the retraining of  school principals.  3. Enlist the community  (parents and others) in understanding the teaching and  learning objectives of the  school and in providing support for them.  4. Invest in the development of new types of testing.  5. Provide school children  with lots of interesting books  to read.  6. Develop student record  systems that will help schools  to teach highly mobile stud-  dents more effectively.  7. Put a new emphasis on  writing in the elementary  school curriculum.  8. Build better connections  between research on learning  and practices in the classroom.  9. Make sure that time In  school isn't wasted.  10. Promote greater equity  in the provision of public  money to schools."

Maybe we need to take a  new look at our practise of  appointing Principals. It's  long seemed to me thst it  makes little sense to take a  good teacher out of the classroom and pay him extra to do  an administrative job for  which he has no training and  often tittle aptitude. The  qualities which make for a  good teacher are not necessarily those of a good administrator.  Why, I wonder don't we  hire an office manager to do  the administrative work of  several schools so that the  Principals that can devote all  their time and energy to developing and maintaining the  educational philosophy and  objectives of the school, creating a staff which works cooperatively as a team and  being responsible for the well-  being and reputation of the  student body. In a very real  sense a team captain.  If, as the politicians are  fond of telling us, our children  are our most important resource, then schools and  teachers should be the number one priority of our society,  deserving of our continuing  support, care and Interest.  ��  I  Bargain Shell  NDP Bookstore Dogfish Darby  Gibsons' Third Annual Dogfish Derby was not lucky Insofar  as the weather was concerned but despite the rain and the  march-like temperatures in which the day began hundreds of  visitors snd locals took part in what has become one of the regular attractions on the B.C. Coast.  Action was particularly slow In the morning with just a few  hardy souls putting to sea in very unpleasant and unsummery  weather. It picked up, however, as the day wore on and by the  time the last fish was weighed more than three tons of dogfish  had been removed from local waters.  Louie Eckstein of Port Moody was one of the big winners.  Louie boated the largest dogfish caught, a healthy 13 lb. 12oz.  specimen and took back to Port Moody a cheque for $1,000 for  his efforts.  Brian Covernton of Roberts Creek took the second place prize  of $300. Brian's dogfish weighed in at 13 lbs. even.  There was a three-way tie for third place with three anglers  catching dogfish that were weighed at 12 lbs. 14 oz. D. Bezan-  son of Vancouver wu judged to be the winner as his fish wss  the first of the three to be csught. So for getting out there in the  cold snd the rain In the early morning, Bezsnson picked up a  nice cheque for $200. His fish was weighed In at 9.1S a.m.  The special Super-Valu prize of a trip to Hawaii to the person  who correctly guessed the weight of all the dogfish caught  went to Terry DeLong of Gibsons. Terry's guess of 6,363  pounds wu the closest recorded to the actual weight of 6,327  pounds.  Burnaby men showed themselves to be dogfish fishermen to  be reckoned with during the day. A Mr. Renau of Burnaby took  the trophy for the Largest Bulk Weight of dogfish caught. He  brought in a whopping 255 lbs. of fish on the day. Another Burnaby man, Harry Lubyk, won a Bulk Hidden Weight prize for  145 lbs. total of dogfish.  Other Bulk Hidden Weight prizes went to Les Mosolanczki of  Port Mellon at 40 lbs., Kenneth Campbell of Langdale at  8.5 lbs., Harold Allen of Gibsons at 85 lbs., snd Tom Johnstone  again of Burnaby and also at 85 lbs.  Individual fish Hidden Weight prizes went to Nancy McKay  of Gibsons whose fish weighed 5 lbs. 10 oz., Willie Mah of  Langdale for a 9 lbs. 6 oz. fish, Mike Hallgreen of Haney whose  fish weighed 2 lbs. 8 oz., and Ronda Holland of Gibsons whose  5 lbs. 8 oz. specimen matched one of the hidden weights.  Special trophy prizes went to the young. Shannon Embly of  North Vancouver, just five years old and competing In the  'under six' clus pulled In a 8 lbs. 12 oz. dogfish. The largest  fish caught by a competitor between the ages of six and 12 was  caught by Carlos Soils of Gibsons. The twelve-year old pulled in  a 12 lbs. dogfish.  There were five winners in the Bicycle Decorating Contest  held in conjunction with Dogfish Derby and Canada Day. They  were Kirk Jamus of Vancouver, entry No. 3032; Jenle Mont-  gomery of Gibsons, entry No. 3066; Andy Solinskl of Gibsons,  entry No. 3502; Gall Edmonds and Ron Edmonds of Gibsons, i  entry No. 3084; and Cheryl Shaw of Burnaby, entry No. 3075. 8.

For Sargeant's Bay  $6 million proposal  A proposal for development  of Sargeant Bay was presented by Art Angell at the June  28 meeting of the Sunshine  Cout Regional District Planning Committee in Sechelt.  After opposition and defeat  of a rezoning application at  the May 31 meeting of the  Committee, Angell returned  Thursday with a comprehensive plan for his property.  "There are two things we  had in mind for the thirty  acres below Red Roofffs Road  and the 120 acres above left  to be developed," said Angell.  If the above road property  is rezoned into half-acre lots,  Angell can continue with  development.  "The balance of the area  above Red Rooffs, providing  it is rezoned into half-acre  lots, could become residential. A portion of it would be  made for mobile homes in the  back area up Northwood Road  where it joins into Welcome  Woods.  "Below the road, future  development suggested is  that a portion of this land be  designated for public use with  a small marine area and a  fresh water lake in addition to  a breakwater.."  Angell pointed out that  there is no area for boats be-  Also in the future plsns, u  described by Angell, is the  possibility of approximately  seventy condominium units  below the road.  "There has been some concern about wildlife and the  bird sanctuary which is understandable. My feeling is that  we've got 3,800 miles of coastline; a lot of which can't be  used by the public, which will  always be there. Eagles,  osprey, wild canaries, and  humming birds all nest in the  marsh area. We propose to  create a walk to the Crown  land where the wildlife is.  A Bauer report released  recendy stated that a bird  sanctuary wu not compatible  with a marine and sea plane  base.  The project will cost in excess of $6 million, according  to Angell.  "It will add something to  the area; as fine an area as you  can get on the coast. We have  the funds to do this and develop it," he said.  The rezoning of the land  and the proposed development was referred to the Settlement Planning Committee.  Also presented at the Planning meeting was a proposal  by Paul Rett for a neighborhood public house in a portion  of the Whitaker Block.  A survey of a four-block  square radius showed the  people very much in favour,  according to Flett.  "We're not looking for a  drinking crowd. We're looking for a mom and pop type  situation," said Flett,  The forty- to sixty- seat pub  would operate in the hours between 11 a.m. and 11 p.m.  It wu questioned by committee member Lee whether a  pub located on the main thoroughfare would comply with  Highways regulations.  "I support very much the  concept of a neighborhood  pub but I also see considerable  wisdom in Highway policy to  keep them off the main thoroughfare to prevent a pit stop  situation from happening,"  commented Nicholson.  Liquor Board site approval  must be granted before rezoning can be begun to be followed, if pused, by public  hearing.  The neighbourhood pub  was approved in principle by  the Committee.  The evening of June 11th  wu a time of excitement,  anticipation, happiness and  sadness when nineteen  bright-eyed Brownies left  their packs and Brown Owls  to join the Gibsons 2nd Guide  Company and ten eager  Guides left their Companies  to become the 1st Gibsons  Pathfinders.  Misty-eyed Brown Guiders  watched their girls receive  their wings from District  Commissioner, Gloria Fyles  and fly or walk off to more  exciting challenges. Perhaps  the blow of having ten Guides  leave the fold to become  part of the newest Guiding  group, Pathfinders, wu  softened when the Guiders  realized that the flying  Brownies had increased the  Guide Company to thirty-  one girls.  Girl Guides of Csnada  necklaces were presented to  the ten new Pathfinders by  the Commissioner who in  turn wu presented with a  trefoil door knocker from the  Guides and a Brownie doll  from the Brownies. These  gifts were the girls' way of  saying "Good-bye" to Mrs.  Fyles who has served five  years u Commissioner for  Elphinstone District. With  tears not yet dried, Mrs.  Fyles wu again uked to make  another presentation by the  Division Commissioner, Mrs.  Ruth Moore. This one was to  her daughter, Shelley, who  had earned her All Round  Cord and pin. A lot of undercover work had obviously  gone on in order to keep Mrs.  Fyles from finding out that  Shelley wu to receive her  cord at this time, the result  being more tears. After  Shelley pinned a corsage on  'Mom'. Guiders Mrs. Kaspar,  Mrs. Purcell and Mrs. Shepherd were given gifts of appreciation from the Guide Company.

July 10  0415 14.3  1135 .7  1900 15.5  By John Hind Smith  I played hookey from work  last Monday and spent a good  part of the day with Keith  Simpson, the heron man from  Environment Canada.  He has been quite concerned about the birds in the  Sechelt colony meeting the  same fate as those at Twin  Creek and being disturbed  so much by people that they  desert their nests. Having  seen the place now I don't  think he has anything to worry  about unless some real estate developer gets ideas  about sub-dividing it, as happened in Pender Harbour.  We ploughed our way  through thickets of salmon  berry and alders expecting  all the time to meet up with  bruin at every turn because  there was lots of evidence to  show that he too used this  "trail"? We eventually got to  the nesting site where the  undergrowth was not too bad  but this was compensated  for by the hordes of voracious  mosquitos, who behaved as  though they had never seen  a human being before and  took advantage of the situation while they had the  chance.  There are about thirty-five  or forty nests in this colony,  all in alders this time and  apart fron one or two inactive  ones, you can tell those by  the lack of whitewash on the  nest and on the ground, each  nest containing an average of  two young birds. Some had  three and we even suspected  four in some of them. The  best time to count them was  when one of the adult birds  returned with a load of fish  from Porpoise Bay and regurgitated them into the nest  for the youngsters to eat.  The noise that these little  guys made was quite horrendous and there was no doubt  at all when the parents were  sighted and arrived at the  nest. All these birds look  alike to us but the young ones  knew their parents and obviously the adult birds knew  their own nests.  If Porpoise Bay is anything  like Oyster Bay in Pender  Harbour at this time of the  year it will be teeming with  fish and the birds will not have  any trouble finding the food  but with the amount consumed by the little ones,  it must be a full-time job for  the adults to feed them.  In Pender Harbour Randy  is doling his thing in providing  valuable information about  feeding habits, what their  preferences might be as to  what they eat and how fast  they grow (like weeds I guess)  etc. Randy was booted out of  his nest by his brothers and  sisters lately and rescued from  the clutches of ground predators by Keith and his helpers.  He is now living the life of  O'Reilly and is probably the  envy of all his peers.  You may remember that  last year Keith was able to  band about seventy-five  birds (adult) in Pender Harbour. About fifty of these have  now been observed and accounted for, some of them in  the most unexpected places  and as far away as Porpoise  Bay where some of them  appear to commute to eat.  None of the birds in the Sechelt colony appear to be  banded but Keith would  welcome any sightings of  these birds wherever they  might be seen. If you do see  one you could reach him at  883-9181 or myself at 886-  9949. The bands are quite  large, red with black letters  and numbers on one leg and  an aluminum band on the  other.  We checked and rechecked  every nest in the colony except for number twelve which  we never did find. The trees  containing nests are marked  with aluminum tags with a  number scratched on it  and then located on a map to  make it easier to locate. That's  of course when you have the  map with you I The experience  was well worth all the physical  inconveniences that one had to  contend with. Keith, as anyone who knows him will confirm, is one of those lucky  persons who enjoys doing  his job and his enthusiasm is  inclined to rub off on to those  fortunate enough to be with  him. Unfortunately (for us) he  will be transferred to a different department of Environment Canada in August and  will be working with fish  instead of his feathered  friends but I have a feeling  we will still see him around  with the herons to which he  has understandably become  quite attached. He has a  couple of helpers now and tells  me his successor will be  taking over where he left off.  Good luck to her.

The birds did come back this  year but left after a very  short time. I think we can  safely assume that all the  noise of construction by L&K  was the cause of their leaving.

Ramblings of a Rover  By Dee Cee  Jade knife found during excavation at Buccaneer Marina, Secret Cove by Jack  Mercer on June 28. See story.  Jade knife historic find  A new find of jade was  made during the excavation  of a drainage field in Secret  Cove by Jack Mercer on June  28.  The seven-inch long piece  was probably used as a cutting or scraping knife. Often  such pieces were given ceremoniously to young people.  Where did it come from? As  there are no known sources  of jade around the Coast, it  was suggested by local historian Lester Peterson, that it  may have come in trade by  way of Fraser, Pemberton  Valley, or Lillooet River area  down to the head of Jervis  Inlet. Some jade has been  found in Porpoise Bay and re-  Wlid Mushrooms (3).  This week I will skip the  preamble, try and avoid any  side strolls down memory  lane and get on with my  original objective in writing  these articles i.e. to attempt  to classify and describe some  of the more common edible  wild mushrooms found in  this area. Last week I dealt  with the Prince so now we  will proceed to:  1. The Blewlt - a rather  sinister looking mushroom  with its bluish purple gills  but a choice morsel when  cooked, especially stewed  in milk, over toast or, if in  sufficient quantities, makes  an excellent soup with the  addition of more milk or  cream.

From Lockstead in Victoria  No BCRIC amendments  The B.C. Resources Investment Corporation as it exists  today contains some glaring  deficiencies. The NDP last  week offered concrete amendments that would realign  BCRIC with the interests of  British Columbians.  While Mr. Bennett claims  BCRIC gives every British  Columbian an opportunity to  participate in the future of  B.C. he is obviously referring  only to those with more than  one hundred shares that are  allowed to vote. In reality this  excludes the great majority  of British Columbians that  simply'cannot afford the $600  It takes to purchase the one  hundred shares. Cearly a  more equitable arrangement  would be to allow all shareholders  of  BCRIC  a   vote  law for every other company.  BCRIC muat hold an annual  meeting to ensure that the  company directors are acting  in the true interests of the  shareholders. It is still unknown, to this day, what  BCRIC president David Helliwell is paid. Surely the disclosure of salaries and remunerations of the directors is  a most rudimentary right of  all shareholders.  BCRIC was made possible  by some very profitable government purchases made by  the NDP administration. The  Social Credit cabinet however  'is hesitant to acknowledge  that both the private and public sectors are required to  guarantee BCRIC assets  remain in the hands of British  Columbians.

It  is usually found in the fall  months   on  the  ground   in  meadows, in ploughed fields,  sometimes by straw piles or  near manure heaps.

Dear Ann,  I've been going through a  set of disappointments.  My personal life has been  disappointing. I louse up my  love life just doing the wrong  thing. I apply for many jobs  I gathered Meadow Mushrooms by the wash-basin full  and not (at the time) knowing  anything about drying them,  I ate them a frying pan full  at a time and gave the remainder to the lady whom I mentioned earlier was my guide  and mentor.  5. PuOballa - are a type of  mushroom that is easily  recognised by the beginner.  There are six varieties of  which the Clustered Puffball  is the most common. I have  never had the pleasure of  finding a Giant Puffball in  B.C. but I did come across  one in Alberta which weighed  around two-and-a-half pounds  and which, to the farmer's  wife's horror, I brought back,  sliced, fried and ate about half  of it for my supper. They can  weigh up to thirty pounds!  Locally the Clustered Puff-  balls are a common sight.  Dozens of them can be seen  in tight clusters on rotten  wood, stumps, and along the  edge of clearings in conifer  or mixed forests. Last year 1  fouhd a large number right in  front of Bonniebrook Lodge  in the private beach area,  sufficient to have a big feed  for my supper and some  left over for drying. They  are edible and choice if young  and firm and the flesh is  pure white. Later on if the  centres contain a greenish  brown powder when squashed  they are past their prime  and should be discarded.  Their caps are covered with  small granules, giving the surface a rough feel.  6. Chanterelles ��� there are  six varieties of these beautiful vase or trumpet shaped  mushrooms out of which two  are not recommended. The  Yellow Chanterelle is one of  the best liked and the Pigs'  Ears (also a Chanterelle)  is an excellent edible fungus.  It makes a delicious dish when  sliced and fried with meat.  The yellow one has a golden  to dark egg-yellow cap,  smooth first, rounded, then  upturned, centre hollow and  it is shaped like a trumpet two  to five inches across, flesh  white peppery, apricotlike fragrance. They are found  from summer to late fall under  Douglas firs, hemlocks or  spruces, in both old  spruces, in both old and second growth forests. The Pigs'  Ears are found in old forests.  They have a cap either seal  brown or tan, five or more  inches across, flesh grayish.  So far I have only scratched  the surface with regard to the  edible mushrooms. Next  week I will mention briefly a  few more, hopefully get on  to the poisonous and hallu-  cogenic ones and bring this  series to a conclusion much  to the relief, I am sure, of  yourself and the many other  recipients of your newspaper.  P.S. To Hie Editor.  I would respectfully suggest  that you commence looking for  a replacement for your photographer. After his snide  remarks about me I am convinced that he is not only  going around in a hallucogenic  haze but is also suffering (poor  fellow) from premature senility when he cannot even remember that emphatically he  did not take the picture of  the Amanitas last year and he  cannot even recall correctly  whether I had a dragon or a  snake in bed with me.  By the way Mr. Editor are  you still with us or did I inadvertently give you a jar of my  dried amanitas instead of the  Prince which I had intended?  ���OMAN  CATHOLIC SERVICES  Rev.

June  but the ones I really want I m|rp Q fl| am  Dominion Day is one of the  'big thirst' days on the loggers' calendar of annual  events. It was for this reason  that our Tim was in town and  I was able to buy him a bucket  of suds up at Wakefield to  help celebrate Canada's  112th birthday. I asked him  how he felt about the rainy  and un-seasonal weekend we  were having.  "Veil, it yoost go to show  how wrong dem pour folks  vas vot vanted tew svitch  our timbre dayse tew Yooleyel  Ay vas not kanocking de rain  'cause it's good for de garden  and it's good fer de voods. But  ay feel reel sorry fer de pour  folks vot has tew march in de  parade I"  Being as prejudiced as I  am about bringing about the  demise of Timber Days by  splitting up May Day and the  Loggers Sports, I couldn't  agree more with what Tim had  to say. After seven years of  the two day celebrations, the  response from the community  by putting 45 entries in the  parade, donating cash, trophies, valuable prizes and  volunteer effort, indicates to  me that our spring affair is  here to stay. Even the robins  have taken a back seat to our  committees as the harbinger  of the season and are reading  the local press along with the  rest of us in preparing to welcome the annual influx of  tourists.

Coast News, July 3,1979.  Wildlife  corner  Rafe...MalroflettT  It wasn't too long ago that  I felt a wave of relief that  Rafe Mair was the cabinet  minister in charge of the environment.  The first sensible thing that  he did was to admit that he  knew very little and would  learn what he could before he  made any decision.  Two of the major controversies at the time of his  placement were the poisoning of wolves to protect  livestock, and the application  of 2,4-D to the lakes in the  Okanagan as a deterrent to  the Eurasian milfoil weed.  In the past month, Mair  has come to a decision- on  both of these topics. He has  come out in favour of both  the poison and the chemicals.  In my naivete it crosses my  mind that his recent re-election for another term of office  might have made the decision  somewhat easier, but then,  what do I know about politics? The fact that he was a  knight in shining armour before the election, was probably coincidental.  Also in my naivete, 1 wonder why, in the case of the  wolves, a slow acting painful  poison (10-80) is preferable to  one that would act quickly.  I realise that sitting in the  warmth and comfort of a  newspaper office is no place  to criticize ranchers who are  losing their livestock to these  slavering canines, so I thought  I'd give you a few figures  from the office of Mr. M.  Chambers, who is in the  Information and Education  Department of the Ministry  of Recreation and Conservation, at the Wildlife Branch in  Smithers, B.C.  Here ire the official figures  turned into the office for the  Skeena Region (110,000  square miles), for the four  year period between 1975 and  1978.  Cattle killed; by wolves 53;  by coyotes 4; by bear 4;  by others (dogs etc.) 2; Sheep  killed by wolves 15; coyotes  11; bear 22; others 6; Horses  killed by wolves 2; coyotes 0;  bear 0; others 0; Others  killed (goats, pigs etc.)  by wolves 4; coyotes 0;  bear 2; others 1.  From these figures, it looks  to me that either the wolves  have put themselves on a starvation diet, or they prefer  their original fare to that  provided by man. If the loss of  13.25 cows a year in cattle  country constitutes a major  financial loss to the ranchers  then how do they manage to  survive in business when  many more than this ate  run over on the highways  each year.  According to Rafe Mair,  his decision was based on  further information which  clued him in a bit more, so to  be fair to him, I'll see if I can  get a hold of it and see if  it's more earth-shattering  than the information that in  Alberta they are having success with a repellent, which,  when injected into a carcass,  makes the predator violently  sick, and turns it off that  type of diet.  Manh Dedication.  Members of the Marsh  Society are invited to the dedication ceremonies at the Sechelt Marsh. There'll be  represenatives from the Century 21 Foundation there, so  it should be interesting to  pick their brains. If you don't  feel like doing that, pick your  own choice of picnic goodies  and head down there at about  11 a.m. on Sunday, July 15th,  hope to see you there.  Wildlife Federation.

Aboard the fishpacker Samson IV  ByRloWdF.Ke���tt  That's what she is; a  floating shopping centre; a  modern day general store over  the past number of years  serving commercial fishermen  with provisions and other  needs when she takes up station at Wadhams in Rivers  Inlet until the closing of the  fishing season at summer's  end.  In past years fishing packer  Samson IV has served the  needs of some 400 fishing  boats. This year, however,  is an unknown quantity.  Though the season is expected  to be much lighter, Samson IV  is still expected to be a beehive of activity.  On board, this modern  day general store hu all the  supplies and facilities any  super market has including  oceans of parking, a well-  equipped meat department  With three freezers and a  walk-in cooler, (B.C. Packers  requires that the storekeeper  on this vessel be a butcher).  There are ample grocery  shelves and islands, magazine  racks, a good size fresh produce department with walk-in  cooler for dairy products as  well, a check-out with lotions  and notions, films, snuff and  cigarettes, tobacco and the  much needed chocolate bars,  potato chips, candy and pop  machine, for I am told mat  upwards of fifty cases a day  go out of the store, all canned.  There is a section for hardware, knives, pots and pans,  brooms etc., while another  corner of the store stocks the  work clothing, jackets, pants,  shirts, boots and scoks, towels, tace cloths and a variety  of Stanfields. Finally, there is  a section for the many items of  commercial fishing gear and  four pigs. Yes I asked the boss  (a former fisherman himself)  what the hell were pigs doing  on my invoices. Now I know.  Needless to say, between  the store shelves and the large  stockroom, the initial grocery  tally is already 483 cases from  Kelly Douglas alone, not to  mention the specially Imported twenty bags of rice in  lOKg satchels - with handles!  together with cases of special  sauce. What other store can  boast of this?  Just prior to sailing, the  initial supply of meat, produce, frozen foods, dairy  and bakery products will  come aboard and be stowed  in the coolers until we arrive  at Wadhams, and open for  business.  For C. Arthur Monk, ships  husband, O.K.A. ships  master, O.K.A. camp manager, this will be his second  season as such. He is a former  commercial fisherman and  to put it simply, he is probably  one of the most even tempered men I have ever met.  One has to be in this type of  operation.  Also coming along is his  wife Mary who will serve as  store clerk and cashier, ably  assisted by daughter Maria,  at the tender age of twelve.  What a holiday for a youngster!  Father Monk says, "I am  liable to be accused of child  labour," while mother Mary  chimes in "She knows where  the candy, potato chips and  pop ate, besides, she is my  eyes on prices at the check  out counter." One suspects  Mary Monk sees mote than  she lets on,  For those who remembet  Samson IV under another  name, a cook's tour wu In  order from bilge to top deck  noting the changes that have  taken place since her car  ferry days.  Up forward, below the car  deck, is the fisherman's  washroom, showers, automatic washers and dryers without doubt a Godsend for the  fishermen in the area. There  is also a storage room for  numerous cues including an  initial order of 100 cases of  canned soft drinks, coca-cola,  7-up and other popular  brands.  Midships, where the twin  engines once throbbed, is  now concrete ballast except  for two large diesel generators  which keep Samson IV electrified. Further aft of course  is the tiller floats, which house  the steering gear, still operative.  Moving up to what wu  formerly the car deck, the bow  portion hu two large ice-  making machines, recently  screened in for obvious  reasons seeing that the public  stairway is close by. Otherwise, two thirds of this deck  is taken up by the net loft  operated by Harold Millala,  A Canadian born Flnlander.  He says that a net today costs  upwards of $2,000 complete.  Net line and floats about $500,  and net mending $15.00 an  hour. How well I knew these  Finnish Canadians in the Gibsons area, so I said to Harold,  "You Finlanders work hard  and play hard." A warm smile  appeared on his face.  The after portion of the car  deck is the mechanics and  machine shop while the fan  tail or stern section hu two  powerful hoists and slings for  lifting the average size fish  boat out of water for repairs.  Marvin Egeland handles this  operation and has had u  many u ten mechanics  working during the rush  seuon. Except for a two-year  break, Marvin hu ten years  in service. The parts department has a minimum carry  over inventory of $50,000.  Cost of hoisting a fish boat is  $50.00 which is not bad, considering a haircut can cost  upwards of $7.00 nowadays.  Cose by, building a new  office for Marvin, Is Sam  Nishi, the ship's carpenter or  whipwright if you will. Sam  also is a former commercial  fisherman and showed me the  best lure for catching salmon.  I promised him I won't tell,  in spite of the fact that I just  got 2,000 of them in stock the  other day; but it's the colour  that counts, eh Sam?  Ken Nishi (no relation to  Sam u far u either knows)  is the accountant, a quiet  young man and, like most  accountants, strictly facts  and figures.  The observation lounge is  now the ship's office complete  with desks, counters, typewriter, duplicating and adding  machines and all stationery  and forms necessary for a  smooth business operation.  It is the nerve centre for all  * departments. Art Monk Is at  the centre here and tells me  the fishermen buy all their  goods with cash coupons.  Adjoining the ship's office  is the radio shack and Ken  Nishi's office.  The main passenger area  is  now  the  general  store,  two large walk-in coolers,  three deep freezers, a roomy  stock room u well u the  freight elevator serving all  decks with the exception of the  top deck.  Further aft on this deck,  is the very important staff  dining room, lounge and  galley. This area hu changed  but little with those old solid  oak eating booths which will  never wear out and will probably become an eventual  collector's item - all nice and  shiny coated with varathane,  u is the Wed deck.  In the galley, senior citizen  Anne Harris is the cook,  quietly pleasant, busy sorting  out and setting up her operation to feed the hungry crew.  Her husband "Happy Harry"  is helping out and will be tiie  night watchman patrolling  Samson IV, and hu jokingly  acknowledged that he is the  flunky and dishwasher.  Anne lets him believe this  although there is an automatic  dishwuher in * the galley.  On the port side of the galley  is their sleeping quarters.  Anne Harris has previous  restaurant experience but now  with the family grown up, she  wu tired of cooking just for  two.  Finally, on the top deck,  the bridge hu been greatly  changed. You guessed it!  The camp manager's stateroom. All that Is left is the  helm, still operational for ma-  nouevering assistance. One  might uy the camp manager  could roll out of bed, lash  himself to the wheel and be  muter of all he surveys.  Aft of the bridge are all  the other cabins for the crew,  including washrooms, showers and laundry room. The  storekeeper's cabinet is somewhat remote. As Art Monk  says "We do not want the  storekeeper to be eully found  after the store Is closed."  Fair enough.  Last but not least are the  very young deckhands, all  eager beaver, ready and able  to assist the middle aged and  senior citizens operate the  establishment. David Tobiu  at 23 hu served In Samson  since 1974, but alu, he will  not be with the ship this  season at Rivers Inlet for he  is study, jg to become a dentist. Eventually he will drill  and fill with gold, including  his pockets. More power to  you Dave, and he reminds me  that this job over the summer  seasons made it possible for  him to continue his schooling.  His place will be taken by the  former camp manager's  son, Greg Smith. Then there  is Mike Monteith in his fourth  season, quiet but efficient.  Robin Main is the youngster  of the crew, 18 years old in  this second season for him.  On talking with him he asked,  "Will there be any liquorice  ice cream coming aboard."  To which I replied, "Well,  there are ten four-litre palls  of assorted flavours. Take  your pick."

Refugees get support  .ast week members of the  ���tnamese Refugees request-  community response and  .port for the idea of bring-  : a refugee family to the  nshine Coast.    Since that  le,   many  local   residents  ve  given   their   support,  -dges in excess of S2500.00  ve already been received,  d the committee sincerely  inks  the  respondents  for  .'ir generosity.   Many indi-  luals requested more infor-  ition   about   the   sponsor-  ip program and the follovv-  i report may help to define  e project more clearly.  Officials from the Federal  ���partment  of  Immigration  ve assured comittee mem-  rs that the sponsored ref-  ;ces will be admitted over  ���d   above   those   included  thin the government's an*  lal refugee plan. Therefore  is project will have a direct  fluence on how many refuses Canada can accept.  Ba*  .'ally, the project's aim is to  ovide the resettlement as-  stance  needed  to  permit  ese refugees, who would not  herwise   be   accepted,   to  ime to Canada.  The  Committee  for  Viet-  lmese  Refugees is in the  rocess of becoming a legal  iciety so that all  donated  toney will be tax-deductible,  his sponsoring society will  ���en enter into a legal spon-  wship agreement with the  anada Employment and Integration Commission.   The  ociety will be expected to  rovide certain services to the  :fugee family for up to one  ear.  These services include  uterial assistance (accomo-  ation, food, and clothing),  eoeral orientation (greeting  lie family, initial reception,  ounselling,   and   settlement  ssistance), and moral sup-  ort. The federal government  M take care of medical as-  istance to the refugees while  hey are travelling    to this  ommunity,   job   placement  ervices,  language  training,  iccupational   training,    and  ransportation loans,  immigration officials have  tated that most refugees be  come self-reliant and financially independent within four  months of their arrival in Canada. If this becomes the case  with the Vietnamese family,  the society will then be in a  financial position to sponsor  another group of refugees.  Long after the legal commitment for support has expired,  the refugees will continue to  need the friendship and moral  support of the community in  order to successfully adapt to  their new surroundings and  the totally different culture.  The sponsoring society will  ensure that this type of care is  provided.  Immigration officials have  stressed thaf'refugees are  people in trouble and making  a commitment to help them is  a serious responsibility...and  one that should not be taken  lightly." In the last week it  has become evident that many  of the citizens of the Sunshine  Coast are concerned and willing to help these people find a  safer, happier and more comfortable life.  More support is needed.  Please fill out and return the  coupon below if you would like  larticipate in this endea  vour. The financial require- the refugees,  menu can be lessened if material items are also donated  (e.g., clothes, furniture,  food���what about any extras  from your garden?) If you feel  you are not able to donate financial or material assistance,  maybe you could consider do-  nating some time for orientation advice and friendship to  A future news release will  indicate when the society has  been formed and how and  when pledged money can be  forwarded.
