 iFflSLATlVE LIBRARY  LE        .T^MENT BUILDINGS  The Sunshine  Published at Gibsons, B.C.  15* per copy on newsstands  Serving the Sunshine Coast since 1945  August 22. 1978f -j  Volume 31, Numbet/23 (  Rezoning meeting  well-attended  By George Cooper  The Public Hearing of Gibsons  re-zoning By-law drew a throng  of fifty or sixty people on Monday, August 14 to the new  Municipal Chambers in the basement of the ambulance garage.  Was the mood of the crowd like  that of the villagers in Jackson's  "The Lottery"? ��� all outwardly  jovial, concerned only with  trifles but inwardly tensely  awaiting the selecting of one of  their number for them to stone to  death.  But opinions were aired, questions answered, and a few accusations directed at Council with  no undue emotion. At the end  of thc meeting a member of the  crowd suggested a show of  hands ��� for or against the proposed zoning changes. Of the  five who voted four supported the  Council and the re-zoning amendment. The gathering consisted  of property owners from the areas  to be re-zoned and others who  like Gibsons as it is, and would  preserve its unique character  as a rural retreat from the city.  Richard Abrams, continuing  his theme in his Coast News  article of August IS, called for  a consideration of the quality  aspect of the village; for example,  the waterfront as it stands now  in all its beauty. On thc other  hand, he stated, the quantity  aspect breeds quantity and the  result is more tourists, more lots,  more money. Abrams saw  Council's objectives to be at  odds with the wishes of the  people. Alderman Hume countered that Council worked under  the umbrella of the Municipal  Act to provide the people with the  amenities of community living in  the most economic way possible.  Council answered questions  from the public throughout the  meeting and some of the significant queries and responses  follow:  What b the purpose of rezoning  the R4 areas near Shaw Road as  well as Payne and Reed Roads to  R3?  To allow subdivision, (R4  requires a two-acre minimum lot  size whereas R3 is the smallest  lot size permitted and under  certain conditions permits the  building ofa duplex.)  What has happened to the sub-  regional plan committee's  draft report?  The Village is required to participate in such a plan, but the  Regional Board has agreed to  wait until the Village has its  re-zoning plans complete before  setting out an official sub-regional plan for Gibsons and area.  Alderman Hume stated during  the meeting that the Village at  the time of the 1973 zoning by-law  put certain areas in CDA and R4  zones as a temporary measure  until more practicable zoning  could be determined for these  areas. By re-zoning to R3 and  R2 more homes can be built  that can be economically serviced  with sewer and water.  From Mn. Tail, owner-resident  of Bve acres In the present R4  tone: Since the Village has not  put a road to my property, and I  have had to drill my own wells,  and do without Hydro power for  some years, can the Village not  just leave me alone as an R4  property?  Council can exempt properties  from re-zoning. Property owners  will have to apply and each  application is considered on its  merit.  When a vicinity sub-regional  plan la established for Gibsons,  does the Regional District then  control any further re-zonlng In  Ihe Village?  Yes.  The owner of a business at  Highway 101 and Shaw Road  accused Council of circumventing  the work of the sub-regional  plan committee, some members  of which feel their work has been  futile and discredited first by  the Village boycott of their work  and then by by-passing their  report. He also accused the  Village of setting up Shaw  Road as a future duplex slum with  no allowance for parks. Why  not leave the area alone, he  said. Alderman Hume replied  that to keep the R4 area as a  green belt only fits a plan that  envisions Gibsons' boundaries  remaining where they are at  present. Alderman    Hume  pointed out that the adjacent area  in the Regional District was  rapidly losing its rural character as subdivisions develop on  Pratt, Veterans and near the  former S-bend on Highway 101.  On Tuesday, August 15 ��� the  next night ��� Council passed  second reading of the re-zoning  By-law with three minor deletions  that did not affect the general  changes of R4 to R3 and CDA  toR2orR3.  Although "marina" was not  on the agenda, the persistence  of some of the public got an  informal discussion going at the  end of the re-zoning meeting.  One citizen said she was opposed  to spending of tax money on  marina surveys and studies even  if the funds were budgetted.  Others questioned such facilities  as cannery, and moorage for  over five hundred boats. Alderman Goddard said taxpayers will  decide by referendum if Gibsons  will participate in the building of  a marina. What is going on now  is a study by the Federal Govern-  Please turn to Page Eleven  Lawyers sum up Monday  Herbicide hearing opens  There would appear to be a slight discrepancy here but, as one Sechelt businessman found out, Grinning Grade's smile campaign gets hard to maintain when  forged $20.00 bills are being passed.  Pub proposed in Sechelt  A proposal for a neighbourhood  pub was put before Council in  Sechelt on Wednesday, August  16. The developer, Mr. Paul  McMullen, told Council that he  had made an offer on the property  on the corner of Teredo and Inlet,  his offer dependent on both  Council's and thc Liquor Administration Board's approval of  his project. The name of the pub  will be the Wheclhouse; its  atmosphere, through its decor,  will be that of the waterfront and  shipping.  Mr. McMullen said that he had  spent last summer touring Great  Britain; his ideas for the establishment had been gleaned from  over one hundred pubs he  examined. In four hours of  canvassing in Sechelt he had  collected one hundred names in  favour of the neighbourhood  pub concept. Council referred  the matter to the Planner for  study, and to see if it fitted in  with the Community Plan. If  the proposal does not meet with  Council's approval, McMullen  has an alternate plan; to build  a three store complex on the  site.  A motion was passed that a  letter be sent to Glenmont  Holdings, instructing the company to fill in the excavation  north of the Hydro right-of-way  within thirty days.  Alderman Jorgenson moved  that 11,000 be allocated to the  Economic Study, with the proviso  that if the study does not go  through, the money will be  returned.  It was decided by Council that  the application to house a small  building on Baptist Church  property be turned down. It  was felt that Council had made  enough concessions regarding  parking requirements for the  church, and another building  would add to the congestion.  It was the recommendation of  the Finance Committee that  $50 be donated toward the  Legion's cenotaph project.  Hayden Killam showed Council three preliminary drawings  of his plans for offices or stores  on the site of the present Whitaker House. Two of the plans  were, he said, more functional  than the third which would be  along more aesthetic lines. The  third building, though more  appealing, was felt by the Council  to present parking problems. The  matter was referred to the Planner for comment.  Robert Daniel  asked Council  for compensation for damage to  the muffler of his car which  bottomed out in a rain-filled pot  hole on Inlet Avenue. It was  felt by Council that in granting  this request they would be  setting a dangerous precedent,  and the claim was denied.  Len Van Egmond petitioned to  subdivide the property north of  Marine Way, pointing out that it  would result in the paving of  Reef to the extent of the subdivision. Clerk Tom Wood read a  letter from the Planner Doug  iRpy. which stated that the  present ditching was not completed; there was a problem with  Please turn to Page Nine  Last chance  on Cheekye  The Sunshine Coast Regional Board presented its case  against the spraying of thc  Hydro right-of-way in thc  Pender Harbour area in thc  new Court House in Vancouver on Friday, August 18.  The appeal was heard by an  appointed Appeals Board  operating under the provincial  Department of the Environment.  After a day of hearings thc  Appeals Board adjourned with  two witnesses for B.C.Hydro  still to be heard after which  the lawyers involved will  present their summation to  the Board. The proceedings  are scheduled to get underway again at 10:00 a.m. on  Monday, August 21.  The Appeals Board was  chaired by V.Raudsepp,  retired Deputy Minister in  the Department of Water and  the Environment. Other  members included E.R.A.  Edwards, a solicitor in the  Department of the Attorney  General; Dr. Renney, Dean of  Plant Sciences at U.B.C; Dr.  N.Schmitt, Clinical Instructor  at UBC in the Department of  Health Care; Dr. W. Godol-  phin of the Department of  Pathology, U.B.C; James  Harris, Director of B.C.  Agriculture.  B.C.Hydro was represented  by their staff lawyer Mr. L.  McEwen while appearing for  the Regional Board was  solicitor William Orobko  along with Gordon Turriff,  appearing for John Grames  of Madeira Park.  It was apparent early in the  proceedings that Lawyer  McEwen for B.C.Hydro had  as his main strategy the  discrediting of Regional Board  witnesses on the grounds of  lack of expertise on herbicides.  Witnesses called by the  Regional Board's solicitor  were Joyce Kolibas of the  Sechelt Council. Larry Trainor  for thc Gibsons Council,  Regional Board Chairman  Harry Almond, and Regional  Director for Area 'A'. Joe  Harrison. Also appearing  as an expert witness for the  Regional Board was Miriam  Doucctte who made such a  strong impression when she  appeared at the Community  Forum sponsored by Elphinstone students earlier this  vear.  Regional Board Chairman  Almond was especially  effective on the witness stand,  testifying that he had inspected a portion of the power  line which had been sprayed  early last year and seen  vegetation dead right to the  edge of dried up water courses  which a heavy rain could  turn again into waterways.  Almond pointed out that the  nature of the terrain made it  virtually impossible for thc  stipulation that herbicides  not be utilized closer than ten  metres from water courses  be observed.  Another extremely effective witness for the Regional  Board was Eric W.Brooks of  the South Pender Harbour  Water    District. Brooks  pointed out that the South  Pender Water District took  its water from McNeil Lake  below the power line but that  in dry seasons they opened  a floodgate on Harris Lake  above the power line to feed  McNeil Lake.  Brooks pointed  out that thc Hydro right-of-  way between the two lakes  actually lay over a considerable marsh area.  "There is no regular creek  bed as such between the  two lakes," said Brooks.  Between thirty-six and forty-  eight hours alter we open the  gale at Harris Lake the water  begins to collect in McNeil  Lake but in between the lakes  il just spreads out into the  marshy area." In effect this  means that the entire area  of the power line is over our  water supply.  The first witness for B.C  Hydro was District Manager  Eric Hensch of the Sunshine  Coast whose responsibility  it is to maintain the right-of-  way. The bulk of the cross-  examination of Hensch was  undertaken by Gordon Turiff  representing John Grames  and he skillfully elicited  from Hensch testimony that  his background in herbicides  was limited to two one-day  seminars sponsored by Dow  Chemicals which Hensch  described as promotional  exercises for their products.  District Manager Hensch  seemed unaware that the  marshy area described by  Eric Brooks of South Pender  Water District existed. On  cross-examination he seemed  unaware of what was meant  by the term 'wetlands'  which describes such an area.  Hensch also admitted that it  had been many years since he  read the label of Tordon  10-K pellets which he proposes to use above Pender  Harbour.  Fatality  At approximately 10:00  p.m. on August 16 a single  motor vehicle accident on  Redrooffs Road caused the  death of a fifteen years  old Sechelt youth. Richard  Ian Kammerle died as a result  of injuries received in the  accident.  Sechelt R.C.M.P. announce  that their investigation into  the accident is continuing and  that charges are pending  against the driver of the  vehicle involved, a 16 year  old Seehelt youth.  What may be Sechelt Peninsula residents' last chance to  express their feeling on B.C.  Hydro's plan to run huge 500-kv  powerlines through the area will  come up Wednesday, August 23  at 7:30 p.m. in the Madeira  Park Community Hall. John  O'Riordan of the provincial  government Environmental Land  Use Committee, which oversees  Hydro's plans, will be on hand to  explain the government's position  on the powerline project and  receive input from the community.  No officials from B.C. Hydro  are scheduled to attend the meeting and Sakinaw Lake Property  Owners spokesman lvo Cargnelli  was informed that B.C.Hydro  will not attend any more public  meetings on the Sechelt Peninsula. Cargnelli reports that  Hydro   has   now   received   the  second part of its route selection  study from Beak Consultants but  refuses to make it available to  local community groups. Reliable  sources indicate that the second  phase study has excluded Lasqueti Island from the route of the  powerline but left the Sechelt  Peninsula, Nelson Island and  Texada Island in. "It appears  Hydro has closed the door on  community protest from the  mainland side and simply decided to ignore it," said Director  Joe Harrison of the recent developments. "I believe this is  contrary to the law as set down in  the government's Linear Development Guidelines. We arc  fortunate to be able to meet  with Mr. O'Riordan at this point  because he is responsible for thc  Guidelines enforcement and wc  can make our objections to  him." Hc urged all Peninsula  residents to attend.  Directors irate  Several Regional Directors  expressed resentment over  remarks attributed to Director  Joe Harrison in a recent news  story. Harrison was quoted  as saying that the Regional  Board seemed to take more  interest in developers and  their problems than in thc  people they were elected to  represent.  The issue  arose over  the  question of water supply to  Please turn to Page Nine  Locals missing in plane  Two Gibsons residents,Ron McSavaney of  Floron Agencies and Mamie McKay were injured  in this accident which occurred at the junction  of Hall Road and Highway 101 in Roberts Creek  last week. Ron was released from the hospital  with a clean bill of health but the lady was not  so fortunate. She suffered a neck Injury with  a couple of damaged vertebrae and lacerations.  A Davis Bay man and his  thirteen year old son were  reported overdue on Monday  afternoon August 13 on a  flight from Qualicum to Campbell River.  Missing are Bill Bryson and  his son Brian. The last radio  contact between the aircraft  and Comox Radio was at  10 p.m. Monday evening.  Bryson at that time reported  that he was over Dcnman  Island.  Parksville R.C.M.P.  described the plane as a  Cessna    152,    yellow    with  white wings and tail, and thc  letters CGX OS on the wings.  As of 5 p.m. on Sunday,  Air-Sea Rescue in Victoria  reported that their search  as yet had been fruitless,  but they were still continuing.  Oops!  We let one slip by us last  week, folks, A headline gave  thc date of the recreation  referendum as October 15  while the story carried the  correct  date  of  October   7.  Coast News editor John Burnside accepts the  award for Best Editorial Page from the president  of the Canadian Community Newspapers Association at the Hotel Vancouver last week.  Transfer of road  to be contested  Director Ed Nicholson of Area 'B' broughl the matter of thc  road allowances adjacent to Coopers Green to the attention of  Regional Board members at the regular meeting of the Board  held on Thursday, August 17. Nicholson corroborated the repoi t  carried in the Coast News lasl week thai a movement had been  initiated in Victoria through the Premier's office to transfer the  road allowances to the Cooper property despite earlier assurances that no changes would be made for the time being.  "I had an informal agreement that no changes would lake  place," said Nicholson. "Someone initiated action in Victoria  via the Premier's office that the road allowance had been closed  and the intention was to transfer it to the Cooper estate".  Nicholson said that hc had already informed thc Highways  Department in Victoria that the deeding of the mad allowance  to Cooper would put the property out of thc reach of the Regional Board who have been seeking it to ensure its use by the public  as a public park.  The Director for Area 'B' recommended that the Regional  Board await the decision of the Highways Minister with lhc  public understanding that the Regional Board, if the Minister  of Highways sign thc transfer, will take steps to contest it.  Nicholson pointc out that such a transfer would be in contravention of the Highways Act which required that thirty days  notice bc given in the local press before such a transfer could  take place.  "Due to thc publicity given this matter in Ihe local press."  said Nicholson, "Ihe Regional Board is in a very good position  to ensure that this transfer does not go through."  | Delivered to EVERY address on the Sunshine Coast every Tuesday Coast News, August 22,1978.  mi  A LOCALLY OWNED NEWSPAPER  Published at Gibsons, B.C. every Tuesday  by Glassford Press Ltd.

BLUE  RIBBON  AWARD  Trudeau and trust  Ihere are sonic mighty peculiar  goings on in this country of ours. Sometime in the next few months there will  have to be a federal election. At such  limes one expects that political parties  will be striving for internal unity and  preparing lor lhc event. We arc accustomed lo hearing how this party or that is  described by its adherents as being the  stronghold of all the virtues al a time  like this.  This time out, however, there have  been some strange noises emanating  from the Liberal Party. The constitutional reforms proposed by Prime Minister  Trudeau are drawing criticisms from  Liberal Senators and Members of Parliament   and   the   fear   that   is   being  expressed is that Trudeau's Constitution would open the way for a virtual  prime ministerial dictatorship in this  country.  It surely must be seen as an indication  that thc aloof and enigmatic man who has  led this country for ten years is losing the  trust of the country. If members of his  own party who have ridden his coat-  tails to the Houses of Parliament and  worked with him or for him for ten years  are afraid of the possibility of dictatorship if he gets his way with the constitution, what are the rest of us supposed to  think? Can he ask for the confidence of  thc Canadian people when he doesn't  command the trust of his own party  members?  Energy for export?  These days it is inevitable that something must be said about B.C.Hydro.  Whether it's the giant powerline they  want to build through our Sunshine  Coast or thc herbicides they want to  utilize above Pender Harbour, one is  forced to think about the Power Corporation.  Last Monday. Hydro Chairman Bonner said that Canada may have to develop  an energy export programme in order  to become energy self-sufficient. He  said that the seeming paradox would  result from the spiraling debt costs  associated with thc foreign investment  necessary to develop energy sources in  Canada. Now there's a kind of dog  cha.sing its tail quality about this ��� a  vision of more and more frantically  produced energy to finance the ever-  increasing debts incurred by producing  energy.       Furthermore,   Mr.   Bonner  wants us to stop questioning these  matters. "Energy production not project  prevention," he cries.  Further we are told that local preferences must be sacrificed for the needs  of the nation as a whole. Bonner's  stated goal is energy self-sufficiency for  Canada but one begins to wonder if it  is not energy export that Mr. Bonner has  in mind, if in fact it is not thc awesome  power needs of non-Canadians which are  uppermost in his mind. It is known that  Mr. Bonner is a member of the Tri-Lateral Commission, an international organization of prominent industrialists  and bankers who seek to order the world  as they see fit. Is it too far-fetched to  begin to wonder if the apparently insatiable demands of B.C.Hydro for more  and more expansion have little to do with  the needs of British Columbians or even  the people of Canada?  Pender Harbour water  The new furore in Pender Harbour  over the supply of water is most regrettable. At a time when the Regional  Board and thc South Pender Waterworks arc co-operating in a close and  neighbourly fashion about herbicide  spraying in the Pender watershed this  most recent brouhaha about water to  the Wise subdivision is most unfortunate.  No one on the Regional Board, the  elected representatives that is, has any  intention of forcing Regional water on  Pender Harbour yet a matter of months  after that decision had been clearly  stated it conies up again. Why?  For ihe sake of its own credibility the  Regional Board must tidy up this situa-  from the files of Coaat News  ''e^rnejitol^H  5 YEARS AGO  Not available.  10 YEARS AGO  A report in the Coast News states  that a 'clean-up' of American draft  dodgers in the area is underway.

Why is Joe Harrison crying foul  when it was hc who moved that the  Regional Board look into supplying the  Wise subdivision. He is the Area Director. The other members followed his  advice. Mr. Harrison owes his fellow  members and the public some frank  explanation here. Did he forget he made  thc initial suggestion?  There are also harsh suggestions  being made about thc role of Works  Superintendent Gordon Dixon. It  behooves the directors who bear the  brunt of public criticism to get to the  bottom of the whole business. The  matter is undoing much of the good that  this capable Board is doing in the field  of public trust and respect.  20 YEARS AGO  Gibsons Village Commissioner C.P.

Built  in 1883 for Lord Rolls, she was one of the most palatial private  yachts afloat. When Captain Charles Polkinhorne navigated  her to the Pacific Northwest about 1912 he had to round Cape  Horn, as the Panama Canal had not yet been completed.  The Union Steamships took over the All Red Line assets in  1917 and renamed the craft S.S.CHILCO.   As a Union ship  under this name and, later, as the LADY PAM, she plied Howe  Sound for thirty more years. To the end she was a lady in every  way but one ��� she carried the kick of a mule in her manual  steering mechanism. More than one member of her crew bore  the mark of a broken thumb or wrist from a sudden wild spin  of the wheel as the rudder whipped about while the vessel was  backing from a dock.

L.R.Peterson  Things do crowd in on one  sometimes and this past week  has been a dilly. Less than a  week ago there I was 'swilling  at the public trough' in the  ballroom of the Vancouver  Hotel. The Government of  British Columbia and the  taxpayers footed the bill  for an expensive but mediocre  meal for newspaper publish- j  ers from all over Canada, To  help us through the uninspired dinner we had a brief  little speech bordering on the  apologetic from Bob McLei-  land, the Health Minister.  He was filling in for the  Premier who was billed as the  star attraction but did not  show up, and McLelland  perhaps felt with the scandal  at the Vancouver General  breaking it was a bad time for  him to appear in public.  Be that as it may he restricted  himself to a few pleasantries with only one tiny lament  about 'the high cost of medical  care' and then sat down after  five minutes.  Next up at the same dinner  was none other than Robert  Bonner of B.C. Hydro and Mr.  Bonner is never apologetic.  He grated on for three-  quarters of an hour about the  energy crisis he sees looming.  The general tenor of his  remarks was of course that  unless wc provide the money  and rivers and valleys that  B.C.Hydro feels it needs,  and provide them preferably  with never a quibble, then  wc arc all in serious trouble.  I watched him with some  interest. Has the man ever  been wrong in his life, I  wondered. I was reminded of  Shakespeare's "Upon what  meat does this our Caesar  feed that he has grown so  large." Of course I'd just  finished sharing a meal with  Mr. Bonner and knew that thc  meat in this case at least  was somewhat uninspired  turkey and as such gave no  hint of the source of Bonner's  infallibility.  I took no notes during his  speech. I assumed and quite  correctly that thc ever efficient  P.R. boys at Hydro would  have it reproduced and mailed  to every paper in B.C. before I  got home from thc convention.  It was a fairly standard  'Let me do exactly what I  want to do or you'll be in  serious trouble' Bonner type  speech with a couple of things,  one big and one little, that  seemed new to these cars.  The little thing is a new use  of the language on the part of  thc power corporation chairman.     Apparently  thc eon-  Musings  John Burnside  Slings & Arrows  George Matthews  tiliued accusation made that  Hydro has not done enough to  develop alternate types of  energy is being heard. It is  now the accepted form at  Hydro apparently, to refer  to any sort of power other  than their sort as being  'exotic'. Solar energy is  exotic, coal fired turbines are  exotic, nuclear power is  exotic. According to Chairman Bob only B.C.Hydro can  give us good old non-exotic,  white Anglo-Saxon Canadian  energy so we had better stop  being so difficult and just turn  over the whole province for  them to play with. Only Bob  Bonner can save us from the  exotic.  Thc other thing new to  these ears was the fact that  Mr. Bonner is now talking  about the export of energy.  Apparently the skepticism  about whether all the power  they plan to generate will be  needed is to be countered  with the newly acknowledged  necessity of exporting power  to prop up our shakey dollar.  I've got a feeling that this is  one we'll be hearing more  about.  Well there were more  speeches yet to come, none of  them memorable. One of the  oil companies bought us  breakfast next morning and  took the opportunity to warn  us gravely about our misuse  of energy. The poor consumer. Hc must bear the  blame for all thc problems of  our society as though he had  not been hectored into consumption almost from birth  by thc same people now  taking him to task. A man  from Ford Motor Company  distinguished himself at a  dinner in Chinatown by drawing a parallel between thc  lethal automobiles that his  company is having to call  back before they wreak  any more unnecessary carnage and typographical  errors. Our bellies were  full from all this sponsored  swilling so most of us laughed  appreciatively.  I'm afraid I fled the convention before its close. I  blame my own peculiar brand  of conventionitis. The longer  I stayed thc more depressed  and anti-social I became. I  fled to the Alcazar Hotel and  drank beer with some artists  and longshoremen and it  felt somehow like fresh air.  As I say things crowd in  sometimes. I don't know how-  it is with other people but  I've always found that the  old computer works much  better if it is allowed time to  programme thc intake. This  present week it feels like it  has just been swept over by  impressions and issues,  without thc requisite reflection time.  One overall impression  which was left however was  some anxiety about democracy. Both in Bonner's  speech and at the Hydro  hearing on Friday there was  a sense of impatience about  hearing public concerns.  Bonner spoke of regional  concerns giving way to the  larger picture. The lawyer  virtually accused local politicians of vote-hunting when  they expressed their concerns  about herbicides in the water  supply.  One of the participants at  the hearing observed that it  was of no use contesting with  these corporate giants after  she had been grilled by  Hydro's high priced help.  It was easy to sympathize  with her feelings but for the  sake of thc kind of world  our children's children will  live in we have to continue to  oppose what we believe to bc  wrong. Wc take pride in  living in a democracy. The  essence of democracy is that  the people must be listened  to. When those elected or  appointed lo high office grow  impatient of listening they  must be replaced.  The struggle to make  democracy work better must  continue. No better system  has yet been devised for  assuring social peace and  justice.  Sitting on the bank above  Armour's Beach last weekend,  watching the boom men perform their Sea Cavalcade  stunts a couple of things came  to mind about the work these  men do. First, it is interesting  how little people know about  the boom man's job, despite  the fact that booming accounts  for such a large part of the  local industry. Secondly, I  was impressed again at the  remarkable degree of skill  and knowledge involved in  the job. You can take it from  me that the better part of  these fellows didn't stay  around school long and likewise when they were there  they weren't exactly on  the Honour Roll. But the  degree of intelligence, skill  and initiative shown by these  men on the job says a lot more  about the inappropriatencss  and irrelevance of much of our  public school education than  it does about the ability of the  men who work on the booming  grounds.  Men on the booming ground  and in logging camps for  that matter often display a  number of characteristics  which would alienate them  from the system of public education as it operates today: a  tendency to prefer action to  thought; a distrust of abstraction; pragmatism; an unbridled sense of clan and self-  confidence; a certain endearing disdain of social discipline;  a strong preference for the  practical over thc theoretical  and many other qualities  better left to the pen of a  fmwurur^rvavmKMu^armiwwwun  HB?

Laughter amid the loyal sunflowers  nodding above a confusion of knees,  and the sweet green subtraction of the hours  beneath a startled golden cloud ot bees.

In any case, thc skills we  observed at the Sea Cavalcade last week are only a  very small part of the total  knowledge and ability of the  experienced boom man. Unfortunately, the everyday  job of logsorting takes place  in isolated little bays and  coves, out of sight and difficult  to observe. Those who have  an opportunity to watch a  booming ground in operation  would be unlikely to understand what is going on and  much of the skill that the  workers display is often so  esoteric and made to look so  easy by years of experience  as to go unappreciated by the  casual observer. Making up a  set of sticks, stowing, sorting  the yellow cedar from the red,  pushing a tier of pulpwood  into a bundler, swiftcring  a boom; any and all of these  jobs done in a running tide or  a wind, can be as tricky as  any task performed on any  job.  My own summer on the  booming grounds ended last  week, thc result of a sore  back, a layoff and the need  for a couple of weeks to get  ready for teaching school  in September. I never enjoyed  a summer job more and I  got to work with some fine  people. I learned a lot even  through it would take me quite  a while to become good at it.  Some of thc things I learned  included telling the difference  between red cedar and yellow;  finding out that I'm a slow  learner (that should be a big  help to a school teacher);  that for some crazy reason  thc experienced boom man  makes less than fifty cents an  hour more than the greenhorn, despite being capable of  as much as twice the work;  that a sturdy woman could do  a boom man's job but for some  reason no women work in  booming. I learned a lot of  other things as well and I'm  grateful that I had the opportunity. My teachers, the crew  at Plowden Bay, have my best  wishes and thanks: Gordie,  the boss; big Jim, the King  of the raceway; Lome, Shane,  Mike, Bruce, Don, Ron and  Jock, Barry and Bart, Paul and  Bill and Bill M.

Stroking  Editor:  I enjoy reading Dennis Gray's  "Coast Strokers", as well as I  enjoy riding motorcycles. Unfortunately, 1 can only read  "Coast Strokers" once a week,  whereas I can ride daily. His  column is well written, informative, humorous, and a refreshing  treat. To my mind, a very good  but very short escape from all  those long winded retorts, tit-  for-tat, finger pointing and poison  pencil pushers which seem to take  precedence in all Sunshine Coast  weekly papers (Coast News  included).

Marion Alsager,  Co-ordinator, Sea Cavalcade  Queen Pageant  Bombed  Editor:  Our parade on Saturday was  the best in a long time and fun is  fun but I was sitting on a curb  at Andy's Drive-in enjoying the  parade. I had my dog on my  knee when next thing I knew,  someone on a float threw a balloon full of water at me. It hit  me right in the crotch and my  clean white slacks, plus me  was soaked with dirty water.  They might have intended it for  my dog and I was glad it did not  hit her. She could have been  hurt. One can expect getting  wet from the firemen but one can  stay clear. I had to go home and  wash  my clothes.     It  spoiled  'Astounded'  Editor:  The statement that Eileen  Glassford made under this  heading was, "It astounded me  when the Village Council sat  complacently by and allowed  Sunday opening of Ken's Lucky  Dollar store. Of course the Co-op  had to follow suit in self-  defense." There followed a letter  written to the editor of the Sun  which Eileen submitted, as written on behalf of Stong's who  agreed that supermarkets should  be closed on Sunday. His arguments were that while the general  public would favour Sunday openings they should consider that  this would undermine family  life, the corner stores would  lose the benefit of evening and  weekend business, and finally,  when all stores were open Sundays business would level off  because the same volume would  be done thus creating a larger  overhead in heat, light, refrigeration, wages, etc. In the end  the consumer would pay for this  "convenience".  I have para-phrased as accurately as possible the essence of  the statements made so that my  readers will understand what it  is that I am answering. So often  when I pick up a newspaper and  read a response I say to myself,  "sounds logical, but what was it  that the other person said?"  The issues are complex. There  is much to be said pro and  con. I will try to give you our  position on this subject as briefly  as possible.  1.

Primitive man in his complete  celestial ignorance found most  objects in the sky awesome  and such phenomena as  comets or eclipses,  terrifying beyond belief.  Over countless centuries,  he gradually came lo understand thc nature uf the  universe and things once  held to be supernatural  ucrc revealed in their true  light. Mosl things, that is.  Ilul certain mysteries remain  to this day. Beyond doubt,  one of the most-intriguing  is the enigma of flying  saucers.  It is difficult to pinpoint  exactly where the current and  continuing obsession with  Unidentified Flying Objects  began but it was somewhere  in the early Fifties. 1 came  across my first saucer article  around that time, in a science-  fiction magazine called  OTHER WORLDS. Purportedly by a U.S.A.F. pilot  (whose name evades me)  and touted as "fact", it  described how the author  gave chase on several  occasions to strange sky  vehicles. Eventually, he was  taken plane and all, aboard  an enormous mother-ship  and apprised by the alien  crew of their intentions  regarding Earth (ostensibly  benign). Hc was then released to spread the gospel  of cosmic brotherhood.  The story was curiously  similar in many respects to  the rash of bizarre accounts  that were to follow (some  were probably modelled on  it). I must say. I didn't give  il much credence at thc time.  The editor of the magazine  in question had. a few years  previously, been party to a  colossal hoax involving a  man called Richard S.Shaver  who claimed  to  be  able  to  Pages from a Life-Log  Peter Trower  recall a former existence in  thc lost continent ol l.cmuria.  Shaver churned out a succession of badly-written "fact-  novels" claiming, among  other things, that degenerate  descendants of thc scientifically-advanced l.emurians  still exisled in huge caverns  miles underground where  Ihcy   plagued   mankind   by  broadcasting negative psychic  energy with the aid of archaic  machines. Thousands of  people were taken in by this  arrant nonsense, including  briefly (I blush to admit)  this correspondent, then in  his gullible early teens. Thus,  I lixik the initial saucer story  with several grains of salt.  It   looked   as   though   that  Something Over Elphinstone  Above Ihe green brow of the mountain  something odd hung in lhc light  ga/ing down on those cropped hills ���  it was nol right  Ovoid, peculiar and shining  ii shimmered in lhc clear sky  and il didn't move as lhc gold clouds  glittered by.  The equations had suddenly altered  This was foreign to the rules  a small disobedience in the distance  and I was all the fools  who've ever babbled to the papers  about green men from ships  that saucer slyly from thc heavens  to shanghai folk on queer trips.  1 was frozen on Ihe ferry-deck  1 watched in numb wonder  It was not native to this sky  but to some sky yonder  I'd have heen doubtful of my sanity  had I been standing there alone  but other eyes than mine gazed in awe  to where the wrong object shone.  No one spoke   It was all too curious  Then it grew odder yet  Something broke free from the mother-shape  and slid down the sunset  The cloud-that-was-not was giving birth  There were no precedents to seek  lt fell slower than thistledown  till it vanished behind thc peak  Then the ferry rounded an island  and it was all lost to view  What wc had seen we weren't sure  That we had seen it was all wc knew  No one said much ��� What can you say ���  about unaccountable events?...  But some damn funny things have been going on  around this country ever since.  devious editor was back in  the balderdash business  again.  But this time he proved to  be on the track of something  considerably more feasible  than Lemurian troglodytes.  That possibly-spurious  article in a reasonably obscure  sci-fi magazine seemed to  mysteriously trigger something in thc mass-consciousness. Suddenly there were  pieces of galactic crockery  darting about everywhere.  The news-media jumped on  the bandwagon forthwith  and gave much coverage to  the burgeoning profusion of  sighting-reports. Many of  these accounts were obvious  hoaxes and/or hallucinations  (such as a man who claimed  to have been whisked off to  Venus by an alien craft);  other sightings were honest  misconstruences (weather  balloons, light refractions,  etc.) and then there were  the strange ones. These, of  course, were the cases that  defied either refutation or  explanation. They were sometimes accompanied by photographs that showed no  evidence of having been  faked.  The whole business created  such a furor that the U.S.  Air Force felt compelled to  get into the act. They created  a special department called  Project Bluebook, dedicated  solely to the compilation and  analysis of U.F.O. sightings.  Over the dozen or so years  that the research-teams  were active, they amassed  an enormous quantity of data.  These findings broke down  generally into the aforementioned categories. The incidence of "inexplicable"  occurences was between  fifteen and twenty percent.  In their final summation,  the researchers expressed  honest mystification over this  latter group of cases.  Flying saucers seemed to  slip into limbo for several  years after the publication of  the Bluebook Report, upstaged     by      Mars-probes;  Twilight Theatre  Action-packed adventure is the  key-note for this week's film  programme at the Twilight  Theatre.  The firsl film of Ihe week is  from Ihe Disney Studios, lt is  from Jules Verne's In Search of  the Castaways and a distinguished cast is featured in this  adventure for the whole family.  Included in the cast are Maurice  Chevalier, Haylcy Mills, George  Sanders, and Wilfred Hyde  White.  Adventure follows adventure  throughout the Southern Hemisphere as Mary and Robert  Grant and their friend Professor  Pagenel attempt to find the  shipwrecked father of Ihe Grant  children. Avalanches, floods,  and erupting volcanoes provide  the natural background of this  exotic adventure story which will  be loved by children of all ages.  In Search of Ihe Castaways  will be shown at the Twilight  Theatre Thursday through  Saturday, August 24���26, with a  matinee on Saturday, August  2b at 2:00 p.m.  Sunday through Tuesday,  August 27���29. the scene for  adventure shifts to 16th Century  England.    The film is Crossed  Swords and Ihe cast assembled  for this outstanding swashbuckler  is truly remarkable. In the cast  arc Oliver Reed, RaquelWelche.  Mark Lester, Ernest Borgnine,  George C.Scott, Rex Harrison,  David Hemtnings, and Charlton  Heston.  Crossed Swords is the splendid  raging account of royalty and  beggars during the time of  Henry VIII. Thc film is from thc  same people who recently made  the stunning remake of The Three  Musketeers and is also notable  for some splendid music on thc  film track, thc work of Maurice-  Jarre.  Thc film is categorized as being  for General distribution which  means that here again we have an  adventure film Ihat the whole  family can enjoy.

Recently however, interest in  possible otherwordly visitors  has experienced a revival  with an attendant upsurge  in the popularity of science-  fiction and fantasy. The  resounding success of STAR  WARS and CLOSE ENCOUNTERS OF THE THIRD  KIND has had much to do  with this, particularly the  latter film, certainly the most  expensive and impressive  treatment of the U.F.O.  phenomenon to date.  The trend has even affected  arch-conservative television  producer and former actor,  Jack Webb. After years of  turning out clean-cut, gung-ho  cop shows like Dragnet and  Adam 12, Webb has made a  tentative foray into thc  unknown with a series called  Project U.F.O. based on  actual saucer-sightings  from  the files of Project Bluebook.

By Rae Elllnghi  Week commencing: August 21.  General Notes: Mars and Venus  are both conjunct Pluto, indicating a brief period of intense  emotional outbursts und ruthless  power plays. Advice is definitely to postpone solving deep-  seated disputes unlit next week.  Mars ��� Pluto aspects often  coincide with rumblings in the  criminal underworld. As physical  violence and shootings increase,  leading figures could be bumped  off at this time. Keep an eye on  the news headlines.  Owing to a strong Sun ���  Saturn aspect, babies born this  week will be very responsible,  cautious and well organized. At  times, however, they may treat  life a little too seriously. They  will have a strong jealous nature  and life's involvements will be  very tense.  Those of you born around  January 5, April 4, July 6 and  October 8 should protect your  physical welfare throughout the  week and take no chances.  ARIES (March 21-Aprll 19)  Intense emotional experiences  are strongly linked to loved ones  and close associates. Partnership problems may become  explosive as others demand their  rights at all costs. Avoid signing  contracts and agreements.  TAURUS (April 20-Ma> 20)  Health and employment matters may now have to be  approached quite ruthlessly.  Frustrating medical problems  could reach a drastic but necessary turning point. Those of you  working should expect very little  from unco-operative co-workers.  This is the week to take a few  davs off.  GEMINI (May 21-Junc 21)  Social activities, love affairs,  romance, pleasures and amusements are subject to excessive  jealousy and possessiveness.  Beware infatuating new lovers  as sexual energy and passion  reaches dizzy heights. Those of  you with children may find them  temporarilv out of control.  CANCER (June 22July 22)  Domestic scene is the centre  of intense emotional struggles  as family members challenge  existing rules of the home. Door-  slamming and crockery-breaking  uproars may indicate thc need  for long-overdue changes in day-  to-day routines. Sign no rental  or real estate agreements until  blow-ups subside.  LEO (July 23-Aug.22)  Letters, messages, phone calls  and short visits hint of outright  threats and ultimatums. Arguments may result in blows so  walk away from heated discussions. Refuse to give in to the  unreasonable demands of  brothers, sistersorneighbours.  VIRGO (Aug.23Sept.22)  Accent is on heated disagreements over finances and rights of  ownership. Personal property  is subject to deliberate violations  so guard it well, it's no time to  sink cash resources into impulsive  schemes or ventures. It's an  unfavourable period to purchase  machinery or  mechanical  gadgets.  LIBRA (Sept.23-Oct.23)  Others will be fascinated by  your present personality, charisma and sex appeal. Nevertheless, guard against lust,  greed and getting your own  way by ruthless methods. Violent  or disruptive energy should be  checked. Those born around  October 8 would be wise to stay  at home next weekend.  SCORPIO (Oct.24Nov.22)  Secret love affairs or clandestine involvements now produce  intense developments which  could be blown apart for all to  see and judge. Have all excuses  well prepared. Those anticipating a period of privacy, peace  and quiet should expect the  opposite as Ihe week closes.  SAGITTARIUS (Nov.23-Dec.21)  Violent reactions from friends  and acquaintances warn you that  current plans may be heading in  the wrong direction. Meanwhile,  have nothing to do with thc suggestions from mere strangers.  Those involved in group activities  or community affairs observe  ruthless shifts in power structures.  CAPRICORN (Dec.22-Jan.t9)  Shocks and surprises arc  aimed at your honour, position  and reputation as underhand  dealings are finally revealed.  Faith in your public standing  is restored only after tough  confrontations. Tread extra  softly around authority figures,  supervisors and thc boss.  AQUARIUS (Jan.2U-Feb.18)  Your inner personal beliefs  are probably coming across too  strong for others to show any  real interest or understanding.  Advice is to quit force-feeding  your ideas until others indicate  more receptive moods. New  starts and revisions arc strongly  linked to skills improvement  courses and higher education  matters. Long distance news is  disturbing as the week ends.  PISCES (Feb. 19-Mar.20)  Explosive conditions are  associated with other people's  finances and private resources.  Despite pleas for help, you have  to allow close associates to  untangle their own monetary  mix-ups. Put aside any personal  long-term investments, tax or  insurance matters for the time  being.  Court news  At the Provincial Court in  Seehelt on Wednesday, August  16. James Peterson was given a  fourteen day jail sentence for  being unlawfully al large. John  Goldrup received a $500 fine,  plus six months probation for  impaired driving, and for theft  under $200. Lorraine Joe was  given a one year suspended  sentence.  On Thursday.

In response to  the emergency there marched  out of the past what thc poet  Kipling called "the legion of  thc lot ones and the cohorts  of the damned"; La Legion  Etrangere, The French  Foreign Legion. "Marched"  is not exactly the word; in  fact they dropped by parachute in a surprise move to  rescue the remaining Europeans in the town, getting a  two day jump on the Belgians,  with whom they were supposed to be cooperating, and  causing a minor diplomatic  flurry as a result. The move  was typical of the Legion,  with its long career of doing  dirty jobs and fighting forgotten wars, usually alone or  with the added disadvantage  of unreliable allies. At Kolwezi the Legionnaires were  again alone in the vanguard,  operating with dubious authorization, and once again they  were successful. The relief of  Kolwezi was a dead-end  news story, an eruption of  violence incomprehensible  to anyone not acquainted  with the intricacies of African  politics. It exercised a brief  emotional and sensational  appeal in the media, then  sank without a trace into the  puddle of apathy, ignorance  and ongoing international  tension that makes up our  daily mass consciousness. In  short, it was an absolutely  typical Legion operation,  the kind which earned them a  reputation and an image more  enduring than the significance  of any battle they ever fought.  For most of us, the Foreign  Legion is the adolescent  fable of Beau Geste, the burning sands, the famous order  "march or die", the lost  heroic misfits. The myth  was created mostly out of the  writings of American jounal-  ists, not a few of whom served  in the Legion and survived,  usually by desertion, to tell  the tale in lurid articles with  titles like "The Legion of  Hell", "Five Years of Tor-  ture in the Foreign Legion",  "Cutthroats of the Legion",  etc. for magazines like the  Saturday Evening Post. At  some point in my youth 1  acquired (I'm not sure how or  when), a copy of one such  testament, entitled "In the  Foreign Legion". Published  in 1910 (mine is the 1928  printing and for all 1 know  thc thing's out of print)  the author, thc proverbial  heart-broken American  journalist, identifies himself  only as Legionnaire 17889.  Despite the author's avowed  intention    to    expose    the  cruelties and horrors of life most important traditional  in the Legion and discourage celebration; the anniversary  other men from enrolling, it   of the  battle  of Camerone,  was this kind of writing, as  the incipient melodrama  of thc nom de plume suggests,  that did so much to romanticize and advertise the Legion  as a ready-made hell on earth  for guilty consciences and  romantic suicides. While the  author admits that there were  many such "lost men"  in the Legion, and cannot  resist telling some of the traditional Legion tales, he is at  great pains to point out that  the Legion's best recruiting  agent in those days was  hunger. Poor unemployed  workmen, he says, were the  mainstay of the Legion. That  may have been true in his time  but thanks to books like  In the Foreign Legion, ably  assisted by two world wars, it  did not remain true for long.  Geoffrey Bocca's La Legion  is a much better book overall.  Published in 1964 by Cardinal  Books, two years after the  debacle of Algeria which  sounded the death knell of  the Legion as most people  remember it, La Legion is  no dry military history, but  then no history of the Legion  ever is. The Legion's battles  have been, with the exception  of Dien Bien Phu and Algeria,  completely obscure. Bocca,  like so many others, tries to  capture the human essence  of the Legion. He opens the  book appropriately with a  description  of  the   Legion's  fought on April 30, 1863,  during the Mexican War.  Camerone was an utterly  insignificant action in a  futile war, a senseless engagement in which sixty Legionnaires stood off two thousand  Mexicans for nine hours.  When the Mexicans finally  overwhelmed the ruined  hacienda in which the Legionnaires were holed up, they  were too astonished at the  obstinate valour of their  opponents to kill the three  survivors. Camerone is mentioned in no history books;  it is the Legion's private  anniversary of its spiritual  birth.  Bocca's book abounds with  anecdotes, from the eccentric  commanders to the career of  El Hadj, "The Pilgrim",  a German professional soldier  who deserted the Legion and  joined the Arabs to become  one of the Legion's most dangerous and tenacious  enemies. One of the best  tales is the story of a young  officer who was shot in an  ambush in the desert. An  old trooper inexplicably ran  back to try to save him, but  he too was killed. When the  Legion counterattacked,  another officer searched  the bodies of the two men  for personal effects. In the  old trooper's wallet he found  a picture of a beautiful young  woman.   In the wallet of the  young officer, he found a  picture of an older woman,  the boy's mother, and with a  shock he realized that the  two pictures were unmistake-  ably of the same woman.  He was able to use his  influence to get to the bottom  of the mystery. The old  trooper had, in his youth,  married a beautiful girl  who presented him with a  son, then began to cuckold  him, flaunting her infidelity  mercilessly. Broken-hearted,  he joined the Legion, never  to return. In time their son  grew up, earned a commission  in the Belgian army, and  having a taste for adventure,  enrolled in the Legion, keeping his rank. Men seldom  used their real names in the  Legion and father and son  had never guessed the nature  of their relationship.  Bocca also records the  agony of the independence  of Algeria, and of the Legion  that called that hostile country  home. Throughout thc book  he stresses that the often  inexplicable heroic fighting  spirit of the Legion was not  motivated by fear or despair.  The Legion was an army of  mercenaries, yet the multinational misfits of its ranks  possessed a unique and  enduring esprit de corps.  Lost to the world, they were  redeemed by the Legion,  and it is interesting to note  that the Legionnaires swore  allegiance to no state, not  even France, but to the flag  of the Legion alone. It was  this terrible doglike loyalty  to the Legion which led many  of them to desert their beloved  barracks and join the OAS,  the secret terrorist army  dedicated to a French Algeria,  The Legion suffered the consequences. It was extensively  purged in 1962; its finest  officers imprisoned, its men  discharged and left to the  tender mercies of the police  of a dozen countries.

T  Paintings on view at the Estuary  An end-of-summer celebration  of beach and sea...this is the  collection of paintings by George  and Mildred Doubt now showing  at The Estuary on Gower Point  Esplanade. The Doubts have  roamed beaches from Hopkins  to West Sechelt with water  colours and pens, gathering an  airy and space-feeling number of  paintings throughout this rewarding summer of fine weather.  George and Mildred Doubt  are long-time residents of Gower  Point and have painted regularly  along   thc   shores   for   fifteen  years. Their work is known '..y  numerous people from this area  through exhibition in Vancouver  but this is the first time a true  collection has been shown on the  Sunshine Coast. It will give a  wider audience of people an  opportunity to see the work of  these two thoughtful and professional painters.  The Doubts are masters of the  beach scene. The pearly greys  and tans of sun-bleached logs  against the pebbles or boulders  of our stretch of shore, against  its wide-spread waters with far-  off fishermen, are a theme that  finds a hundred changing  expressions in their painting  summer. George's work shows  the rock and surge of driftwood  logs piled in uneven scallops,  or sheer drops of cliff banks  with arbutus hanging on with  grasping roots. He is a teacher  of Graphics at Killarney Secondary School and shows his firm  understanding of space and  subtle colour.

Whatever it is it  sure is interesting; guess all the  bird books can soon look forward  to an updated printing.  It's been a year of strange  reports all around. For those of  you who did not read the Province  on Wednesday, August 16 here  is an interesting passage from  the regular Odd Spot column:  "MOSCOW���A sea lion surrounded by killer whales cried out  for help and was saved by dolphins, Tass news agency said  Tuesday.  Tass said Soviet sailors witnessed the incident recently  from the fishing vessel Nevelskoi  off thc coast of Kamchatka in  thc Soviet Far East.  Tass said the sea lion was  surrounded by the killer whales,  which were closing in, when it  roared���sending out a distress  call. Within minutes, thc dolphins  turned away. But it was only a  tactical manoeuvre and some  distance away, the whales  suddenly changed direction and  bore down on the sea lion again.  Tass said the dolphins rushed  to the sea lion's aid again, leaped  over the whales and formed a ring  around thc sea lion.  "The predators had to leave  the battlefield ingloriously,"  Tass said. The sea lion was  saved."  There have been  reports  of  Wildlife  corner  giant lizards down by Allouette  Lake, the spoonbill sandpiper  in Delta, the sockeye running  down the inside of Vancouver  Island on their way to thc States  and getting all the Yanks mad.  Even heard a report about  skipjacks in between the Charlottes and the mainland, which  would mean the Japanese Current must be in close, and now  someone tells me that they saw  a person not only fishing, but  catching smelts at the wharf  in Gibsons.  One reassuring thing about it  is that it's not only humans  that arc losing their directions.  For some reason writing that  last sentence reminded me of a  report 1 read a few years ago  about a species of goose that had  become extinct on its native  territory. After a good deal of  time and expense some wildlife  service finally got them back to  their homeland and breeding  happily again. It's good to hear  when something like this  happens, except in this case there  was a twister. The name of the  goose was the Amchitka Goose.  Water Snake:  I was down at the mouth of  Roberts Creek about ten days  ago when Brian Ludwig called  me over. He had found a water  snake about twenty-five feet up  from the creek with a fish in its  mouth. The fish was still alive  and wriggling so it had just  caught it. It had it sideways in  its mouth, and as long as we  peered at it, it wouldn't eat  its dinner, so we stood back a  bit and within a few seconds  there was only a slightly fatter  snake and no fish. It's interesting  thc way they swallow their  prey. They get it head first,  then they almost literally walk  up it with their mouths open and  it is gone.  The only fish that fitted the  description of this unfortunate  one was a gunnel, but I haven't  time to read up on it fully to make  a positive identification.  After it finished its meal it  took off for the creek and we  spent an enjoyable five minutes  trying to follow its progress in  the water.

Mildred Doubt's work, often  smaller in format, shows a delicacy and a discerning eye for  subtleties in colour, for beach  colours are so sun-strained that  they take much study to avoid  the obvious. She has in this  collection a number of studies  of fragile boney trees peeled by  weather of leaf and bark but  contrasting beautifully with  living plants.

From talking with people that  have been around for a while,  the snakes were, or are quite  common, but I've only seen a  couple of water snakes in the  eleven years I've been here.  Maybe that's because most of  my swimming is done on the  spur of the moment at beach  parties, and I don't think snakes  stay up that late.  More about Herons:  John Hind Smith and myself  went down to the heronry in  Howe Sound. Wc had heard from  Keith and Rhonda of the Reifel  Sanctuary, they were coming up  and we thought it would bc a  good idea to give them an updated report.  We were disappointed to see  that there was absolutely no life  going on at all, and thought at  first that the place had been  abandoned. There were plenty  of egg shells around the bottom  of the trees; didn't see any  skeletons of young, which I  kind of expected. They were  probably carted off by predators.  John got a chance to test out his  folk lore by looking to his compass  in order to find the next nesting  tree. He doesn't deserve too  many accolades for this, as the  computations were made a bit  easier by the fact that we could  sec the tree before he made his  calculations, but I must admit,  hc did come up with thc right  direction anyway.  When we got back to the truck,  both Keith and Rhonda were  there. They had come down and  recognized the vehicle so hung  around waiting for thc wet and  bedraggled twosome to appear.  They are up to start the banding of this year's young birds,  so will bc setting up the traps  again at Cameron's. On Wednesday John and I arc going up  for a visit so next week I'll be  able to give you a report on how  they arc doing.  While we were standing  talking, Doug (I think) Gillctt  drove up. When we mentioned  thc empty nests, hc informed us  thc young were already up and  about, so that was good news.  If you notice anything interesting around, give mc a call  at 886-78I7 or 886-2622. It  doesn't have to be penguins or  giant lizards; often the most  interesting things happen with  animals wc see all the time. Ta.  TRUCKS  \ental ��� Leasinc  ��� Also ���  Domestic and  Industrial  '.isuie Re  885-^84 Coast Strokers  Coast News,  By Dennis Gray  Goldbar: the name immediately conjures up visions of a rich  bonanza. However, my casual  inquiry from some of the townspeople was unable to find the  origin of the name. If there  ever was any wealth here, it's  more obvious source was the  extensively logged mountains  surrounding the town. Goldbar  is a small town on the road  east from Everett, Washington,  to Winatchie.  If it has an obvious name  (which its residents seem to  accept without meaning) it has  two neighbouring towns whose  names are a little more puzzling.  Startup and Sultan. Although the  source of wealth, whatever it  was, seems depleted, the area  provides some of the best motorcycle trials country I have ever  seen. Thc American leg of the  world trials was held here in 1976  and last Sunday it was thc  location for the Washington  Slate Trials Championship.  Although much of the area was  warmed   by   bright    sunshine,  high in the rugged Goldbar  mountains it was overcast and  gloomy. The whole day was like  five thirty p.m. November.  The heavy timber in which  most of the sections were laid  out cut the light down even  more, making photography  almost impossible. One person  used an electronic flash; unfortunately it was not me, so I  have no pictures of the event.  Just under one-hundred  riders completed in the two day  event, coming from as far away  as Calgary, Alberta and many  states. The eventual winner in  fact was from Colorado. Goldbar  trial sections are characterized  by one common ingredient:  rocks. Some sections were dry  creckbeds, some were active  creeks but always the same  rocks, big jagged boulders plied  on boulders.  One particularly difficult  section was a five-hundred foot  long sleep stairway of these  slippery irregular teetering  boulders. To ascend this required  every ounce of skill and energy  a rider possessed and sometimes  it extracted some skin as well.  There was no alternate route.  To ride the loop one must conquer  this cruel frightening section.  Since the loop (fourteen sections)  was to be completed three times,  riders completing this section  must have been discouraged by  the thought of having to ride it  two more times that day. That  so few riders dropped out is an  indication of the determination  and stamina of trials riders. It  was a good day for riding and a  good day for spectating, and if the  significance of the name Goldbar  is lost on the residents, it was  not lost on the Trophy Committee. Thc trophies were marble  plaques with a cast metal figure  of an old miner complete with  six-gun, panning gold.  As 1 sit in our motel room  writing this and admiring the  two beautiful plaques my sons  won, I am also apprehensive:  if thc customs people value these  treasures as highly as I do, I  will be unable to pay the duty on  them.

VLASSIFIED ADS  John Hind-Smith's long campaign to get pictures  of the osprey In Pender Harbour is finally paying  off. This is his most recent achievement.  Hind-Smith and the osprey  By John Hind-Smith  I can hear thc groans already  when the readers of the Coast  News pick up their papers and  see the picture of the osprey.  "Not again, surely!" I can hear  them say, "this guy's as bad as  Ian and the herons". They will  probably throw up their hands  in despair and start writing  letters to the Editor complaining  bitterly about the quality of the  material accepted for publication.  However, you must admit  that this picture does look a  little bit more like a bird than the  other one did and if I keep on  trying, I'm sure I'll come up with  a winner sometime. Trouble is  the birds might have flown by  that time.  I have been watching this  pair of ospreys for some time  now. There is a young one residing in the nest at the present  time and the adults are trying to  encourage it to fly.

The top of the snag on which  the nest is constructed is a long,  long way up in the air and I  really don't blame the youngster  for hesitating. I guess the first  flight of a bird is like someone  learning to ride a bike and wondering afterwards what all the  uncertainty was about. At the  present time the parents leave the  nest for quite long periods of  time and sit in a tree some distance away calling to their  offspring to do its thing. They  come back occasionally to give it  a little pep talk but so far junior  has not plucked up enough  courage to take off. If the wing-  span is anything to go by, he/she  must be almost as big as its  parents and according to Keith  Simpson, the man from Environment Canada studying herons,  predatory birds should have left  their nests a long time ago, so  we really don't know what's  going on here. Maybe they  got off to a late start or something.  Talking of herons, Keith is  up here again this week and is  going to try and band the young  birds.    Last time he was well  pleased with his success banding  the adults so let's wish him success   with   the   young   ones.  Actually this was the first time  adult birds had been banded and  they are now the 'proud' possessors of two bands, one red with  black letters or numbers which  are very visible to bird watchers,  and a  smaller aluminum  one.  It   is   hoped  that  by   keeping  records  of where  these  birds  are sighted and for how many  years, etc., something more will  be learned about their life styles.

'Astounded9 - a grocer replies  A new bout of tax and rate  increases wait while the Social  Credit government tries to pick  the best date for a provincial  election. It may be sooner than  we thought.  As the weeks go by, it appears  thc federal Liberals may wait  until the spring of 1979 to call  their election. This creates  problems for Premier Bill Bennett. Many of the activists in  his party provincially are active  Liberals and Conservatives  federally. A healthy distance  between federal and provincial  elections separates federal  and provincial allegiances. After  all you can't ask a fired-up Tory  to suddenly work hand-in-hand  with a fired-up Grit he had been  battling only weeks before.  Another factor in thc election  timing is the state of the  economy.     Not  Socreds failed to "turn the  economy around", as they used  to say before last election,  they have encountered new pitfalls. Earlier this month the  Conference Board of Canada  predicted that all Canadian  provinces will experience economic growth in the remainder  of thc year ��� all provinces  with one exception: British  Columbia.  At the same time other economic analysts are predicting  that housing construction in the  U.S. is in for a fall next year.  If so, the lumber market ��� the  life raft of the B.C. economy  these past two years ��� could  sink.  Faced with these bleak predictions. Bennett may decide  to seek another mandate as  quickly as possible.    Hc knows  Continued from Page Three  ready have far too many regulations imposed on us by a few  articulate people while the silent  majority says nothing.  2. Our business is a familv  enterprise as is already known.  Wc arc required to compete with  the big supermarkets, and  because people tend to worship  bigness for bigness' sake, it is  necessary for us to give more by  way of service than they do. lt  is not difficult for us to compete  pticcwise ��� in fact we can and do  do better in most instames One  of the advantages we hiv as a  lamily business is thai i : can  shape our business 10 s it the  needs of our customers an that is  what it is really all about. If you  want to bc successful in business  you have to supply in goods and  services what you see your customer would like to have. I  hope that thc Co-op has benefitted from being open on Sunday.  Their opening has not affected  our business in the least. So if  their members and customers  want this kind of service, then I  believe they should provide it,  but not simply because they see  that we are doing well.  3, Thc third issue is one of  economics. When the magnitude  of the Sunnycrest Mall became  known to us  mid-summer two  years ago we knew that we would  lose a very substantial portion  of our sales volume for six to  eight months at least. We knew  we had to take steps ourselves to  survive. Our predictions came  true. It is costly to run a food  store these days, and some of the  major costs are those which go  on every minute of the day, day  in and day out. Some of these  costs are power, refrigeration,  equipment deterioration {which  has to be replaced these days at  staggering costs ever,' few years).  It made sense, since we were  here working most Sundays anyway, to bc open and divide our  fixed overhead by seven days'  sales, instead of six.  4. As to the arguments presented by the writer from Stongs,  1 find from experience that they  are fallacious, or, if I was to be  more generous I would say,  only partially true. Stong's is a  chain of Independent Supermarkets which I know does a good  job and which 1 respect but the  arguments they present do not  hold true here.  a) Thc small evening stores  here, including ours at Hopkins,  cannot begin to cope with the  volume of business in fresh  meats and vegetables on Sunday.  Our size market is just right for  what we arc doing.  b) It is wrong to presume  that there is just so much business to be done in a week, and if  divided by seven, there will  therefore bc less done each day.  Food taken home is consumed,  and when consumed is replaced.  The only people this argument  can apply to arc the locally  domiciled, low. fixed income  people, as for instance, many of  our Old Age Pensioners. This  argument docs not apply to those  who have ample discretionary  spending power, or to the travelling public such as we get here,  or to our own people arriving  home from vacation Sunday  afternoon without food in the  house.  What we arc doing is giving a  much appreciated service at some  sacrifice to our personal freedom  in order that wc may (as a private  family) survive in a very competitive market place. Statistics  reveal that private enterprise in  Canada still provides over  60% of total employment. Big  business has always been given  the big tax breaks. Finally, all  political parties arc revising  their platforms to support the  private sector.  The   private   sector   must   be  only have thc there is a point where unemployment rates become politically unacceptable to the majority  of the pubiic that is employed.  He knows we have been very  close to that point for thc past  permitted to manage its affairs two years.    Will that point be  as it sees fit. Wc bear the rcspon-   reached this winter when per-  look good. Then after the election, if Social Credit wins, the  rate increase will go ahead  far exceeding the ten percent.  In the same fashion, Finance  Minister Evan Wolfe has been  announcing the sales tax will  not be put back up to seven  percent after the federal grant is  removed in September. There is  something rather hollow in that  announcement.  It reminds us of the time Bill  Bennett was sending telegrams  around the province saying he  would not close down the sulphite mill at Prince Rupert if  Social Credit were elected. You  remember the sulphite mill  at Prince Rupert. That's the one  they closed down within a few  months after Social Credit was  elected.  Susan Sproule, representing the Canadian World Youth  will bc in Gibsons until  September I.  The response to the request  for billeting the people has  been good, but still more  places are needed. Anyone  interested in billeting two  youngsters ��� one Indonesian  and one Canadian ��� should  either contact her through Box  23 at the Coast News or phone  her at the Ritz Motel before  September.  Finance is available for this  programme, so no one would  be out of pocket, and it could  be an interesting learning  experience.  ^JU^^aJf Alt ahfa) ajlg ^U ah^ ^U ^> ^U ^U ^U <JU <aV  NDP  *00*S%  Gibsons Harbour Area  Great Canadian and  British Paperbacks  886-7744  ,'PT'r *i* *t* *v "T* *���* ���l* ^i* "V ^* nS*P  SUNSHINE COAST  PEST CONTROL  Wo offer o  ���^_^s Complete Post  Control   Sorvic  883-2531  sibility to pay our bills, be com  petitivc, give adequate services  and meet a large local payroll.  1 am sure the question was  innocently posed because of all  thc argument going on in Vancouver over Sunday opening, but  here at least is our side.

Pender Harbour ratepayers report M4���?^:pl~  By Pender Harbour & District  Ratepayers Association Publicity  Committee  Meeting Rejects Water Plan:  Thc Regional District was  called upon to abandon its plans  for a public water system at the  head of Pender Harbour at a  public meeting called by Regional  Director Joe Harrison August 15.  Thc meeting, attended mainly by  residents from the area to be  served by the proposed system,  passed thc motion unanimously  and directed criticism at both  the Regional Board and its works  superintendent Gordon Dixon,  who was singled out again and  again as the person responsible  for the proposal. It was the first  time thc public at large had been  offered a chance to speak on the  long-running water controversy.  Dixon presented an outline of  the planned water system and  explained how the District had  become involved, stating that  "we (the District Works) never  go into an area unless we are  petitioned first". He was immediately challenged by Pender Harbour A.P.C. member Howard  White who asked Dixon to explain  who petitioned him in this  case, since not one person in  thc room seemed willing to support the proposal. Dixon then  stated that he had been directed  to look into the proposal by the  Regional Board, saying anyone  who read past Board minutes  would know this. "I have read  those minutes," White said,  "and as far as I am concerned  they only confirm that this plan  originated with yourself."  Harbour resident Al Lloyd  asked Harrison how it was that  his own opposition and that of  his Advisory Planning Committee  had been passed over by the  other directors on the Regional  Board while Dixon's counsel  was accepted. "What is the point  of our electing directors to the  Regional Board if they are going  to be over-ruled by paid employees?" Lloyd asked. Harrison replied that he would be taking the  matter up with thc Board's  personnel committee.  The meeting expressed very  serious concern about the  planned removal of water from  Anderson Creek, which is one of  the area's most important salmon  spawning sites. Edith Daly of  Garden Bay told the meeting that  the creek had been visited thc  past weekend by no less a person  than Romeo LeBlanc, Federal  Minister of Fisheries, and that  plans were being laid to establish  a seven-acre spawning channel  on thc creek. Mrs. Daly asked  Dixon how he could have gone as  far with his proposal as he had  without getting it first cleared by  the Fisheries Department. Wilf  Harper, who has offered to  donate his land for the proposed  spawning channel, said Anderson  Creek was reduced to "just a  dribble" during the recent dry  spell and there was obviously  no surplus of water available for a  public distribution system.  Mrs. Daly reported that local  Fisheries Officer Ray Kraft was  opposed to the creek's being used  for a public water supply,  although hc felt the secondary  school might be safely supplied  from it.  In a report prepared for the  Regional District in 1977 the engineering firm Dayton and Knight  advised that a reservoir be  created on Lyon Lake to supply  "compensation water" to the  salmon beds during dry spells.  Thc cost of the water system  proposed by Dayton and Knight  was estimated at $420,000 in  1977 dollars and this did not  include 2.5 miles of main line  running from the secondary  school to the Wise subdivision  on East Pender Bay. In an effort  to make the system cost-acceptable to the residents Dixon has  reduced his current estimate to  $380,000 in 1978 dollars, including the 2.5 mile main line. This  reduction was made possible in  part by sacrificing the plan for a  reservoir on Lyon Lake which  could supply "compensation  water" to the salmon beds.  When pressed on the issue of  what he had done to assure the  water system wouldn't interfere with the creek's spawning  capacity Dixon twice pointed out  that the District water system on  Chapman Creek had been an  advantage to salmon spawning.  However he admitted that the  Chapman Creek system does  have lake storage, and this is  what is used to provide water to  the salmon.     With only small  tank storage, thc proposed And-  dcrson Creek system would be of  no help to salmon there.  Several residents criticized  thc District's method of making  its decision to build on thc basis  of petitions. Developer Michael  Wise, who has told thc Regional  Board he may lose his subdivision  if the system doesn't go through,  has been circulating a petition in  the area seeking support for thc  proposal. Two people stood up at  different times saying that they  had signed the Wise petition  but did so on the understanding  the system was wanted by their  neighbours. Because this did  not appear to be the case one said  hc wanted his signature stricken  off the petition, Robbi Peters of  Malaspina Ranch on East Pender  Bay said she didn't think people  realized they were giving the  District power to act on the  system by signing the petition.  "They thought there would be a  referendum or something else  later, after more information  was known."  The meeting reserved its most  outspoken criticism for the District practice of allowing sub-  dividers one vote on the petition  for each lot in their subdivision.  Harbour resident Bill White  called it "a denial of everything  democracy stands for. It should  be one man, one vote." The  meeting passed a resolution calling on the District to institute  a one-man-one-vote rule in all  future petitions and polls.  One resident asked Dixon if  thc District could legally entertain a petition from Wise when  his subdivision was within the  South Pender Harbour Waterworks District and not in Regional  Plumbing  \\  fixtures     *  for the  do-it-yourselfer  TUB & TOP SHOP  will be closed temporarily from  Fri, August 25 through Wed, September 6  Evenings call: 886-7695  Hours:     Wed.���Sat.      10a.m.���5 p.m.  Seaview Place Gibsons        886-7621  Free delivery from Langdale to Roberts Creek.  ..-SCHOOL SUPPLIES ! j  /     'ONE STOP SHOPPING'    /  A COMPLETE SELECTION       Justarrived!

"I would  like to remind you of a conversation between myself, yourself  and the District Secretary-Treasurer in the Regional District  office this morning. The  Secretary-Treasurer stated that  you have no business to even be  talking to a landowner in another  water district, and that you run a  risk of being reprimanded by the  Municipal Affairs Department  by so doing. Do you remember  that conversation, Mr. Dixon?"  Dixon replied in a subdued  voice that he did.  der Harbour. It was pointed  out at the August 17 meeting  of the Regional Board that  the motion to see if there  was any way to help Developer Wise had been initially  made by Director Harrison  himself, consequently his  remarks could have no effect  but bring discredit to the  Regional Board which had  only investigated the possibility of helping Wise at Harrison's suggestion.  Alderman Ted Hume of  Gibsons also was in attendance at the meeting reporting on the recent public meeting  held  in  Gibsons   about   rezoning in the  village. ^^^^^^  In other Regional Board  business, Ed Nicholson  announced his intention to  seek election to the Board in  the November elections.  Director Charles Lee raised  from the table the question of  the editorial in a local paper  which he had last month found  so offensive. Director Lee  read a prepared statement  asking that each director  state his views about the  writing in question. The  agreed time for the meeting  elapsed before the issue could  be dealt with and it will bc  resolved at a later date.

Peterson  Local resident Lionel Singlehurst painted this picture of Pitcairn Island which he  firsl saw in 1917. Mv sreiU grand-father,  who  founded the company, was  born in Mincing Lane, London, England.  Lionel Singlehurst  Profiles  by G.E.Man Cassln  Lionel Singlehurst's latest  painting is of Pitcairn Island,  and it seems a culmination of a  long and interesting life.  Lionel has endless stories of  his seafaring days. He twice  visited Pitcairn Island, once in  1917 while in the British Maritime Marines, so who better  than Lionel to paint a picture  of it, having met the descen-  dents of the Bounty mutineers?  While there, he exchanged  a watch for two coconuts, with  one of the Bounty seamen's  descendents named Christiansen. He was impressed by  how they were able to fix them  by first removing the kernels  without damaging the shells,  then, after a beautiful job of  varnishing them, write "Sou  venir of Pitcairn Island" on  them.  Lionel does not have them  now, as he gave them away,  one to his brother. Hc was  also given a porcupine fish  and some fruit.  As one looks at thc sun  rising in thc painting, it seems  to light up the whole room.  Not that Lionel's room needs  lighting up���hc is a professional interior decorator, and  has decorated some of the  finest mansions in Vancouver,  such as the Rogers', of  Rogers' Sugar Refinery.  As I write this, I have hanging on the wall before me the  painting Lionel did especially  for mc of the tea clipper Ariel,  the ship in which Gilman and  Company, our ancestors, tooK  tea to England from Hankow,  China, where my Dad and his  father before him were born.  Filmbooking  By Allan J.Criuic  In case there are any readers  interested in film who think that  activity towards programming  films for the Kwahtahmoss  Film Society has ground to a  halt, I am writing this short  report to assure you that booking  enquiries arc in process although  only one film has actually been  booked at the time of writing.  I search the mails daily for  responses to booking enquiries  sent out over four weeks ago,  and I have this week sent off  follow-up letters to two film  distributors. A proliferation of  small distributors, several with  important films, has added to thc  work-load of any who would have  the best selection of films from  which to choose. Success in  programming is contingent upon  availability of films for dates  needed and the willingness of  distributors to rent their films  for the minimal rental which a  small film society can manage to  pay.  The foregoing is a prelude to  informing readers that I have no  further information on the Tati  films about which I wrote in my  last article back in July (18).  Those films were intended as  part of a series to be called  Forty Years of Comedy, commencing with Charlie Chaplin's  Modern Times and ending,  five films later, with Eric  Rohmer's comic masterpiece  from  1976,  Die Marquise Von  0 To date, however, only the  Chaplin film is booked and confirmed. I will have more news  next week even if it is necessary  to go to thc expense of making  long distance telephone calls to  obtain it. Nothing other than the  first six films has been requested  at the moment although thc initial  contacts being made will make  subsequent series easier to programme. Among other possibilities under consideration arc  four films in a scries entitled  Forty Yean of Soviet Cinema  which would include both parts  of Eisenstein's Ivan the Terrible,  screened in consecutive weeks,  and the brilliant modern Soviet  film of Nicolai Goubenko, The  Orphans released this year and  screened at thc last Annual  General Meeting of the Canadian  Federation of Film Societies in  Saskatoon during the Victoria  Day weekend. A series of films  by Czechoslovakian directors  is also planned to celebrate the  tenth anniversary of the spirits  which were not subdued by  tanks, and films made by Milos  Forman (of lame for One Flew  Over thc Cuckoo's Nest, among  others) and Jan Kadar (Adrift,  Thc Shop on thc Main Street  and Lies My Father Told Me)  are among thc possibilities. A  series of films made by independent Hollywood directors such as  Robert Altman, Arthur Penn and  Martin Scorsese has also been  suggested, and a series of Italian  films which might commence with  Boccaccio  '70.  Since my last article, I have  received several letters and  telephone, calls expressing  enthusiasm for the idea of  reviving lhc Kwahtahmoss Film  Society, and 1 would like to  thank those people who were so  encouraging. One telephone  call came from a Mr. Huggins  who was visiting the Sunshine  Coast and was associated with  Allan King (director of the  renowned National Film Board  feature, Warrendale) in setting  up thc Vancouver Film Society  and who later established a film  society in Yellowknifc. Correspondence, including programming suggestions, is still most  welcome, and should be sent  to me in care of this newspaper.  1 am postponing until next week  the invidious task I set myself in  my last article of defining what  is known as "art film", at which  time I expect to announce specific  details of thc first scries. Forty  Years of Comedy.  Lionel has won several ribbons lor his paintings, and  won a prize only last year, at  Ihe Toronto Exhibition. There  is a painting of his hanging in  the San Francisco Maritime  Museum, of a ship that was  built there. The painting of  the ship in which he visited  Pitcairn Island, he donated  to St. Mary's Hospital in Sechelt, where it now hangs.  Lionel tells me he has sailed  around the world six times���  quite a feat! His father was a  seafaring man before him.  Lionel has sculpted a beautiful  model ofa sailing ship his Dad  captained; he is working on  another model now. Lionel's  wife Lillian is very talented,  too. She has a lovely singing  voice, and can play the  ���jiano by ear.  I first met the Singlehursts  many years ago while visiting  Mrs. Husby, Sr. Lionel was  working at interior decorating  then. We met years later  when Lionel had an office job  with the Department of Highways, where he met my husband Mike, and they became  friends. Lionel did not take up  painting until after he retired.  He is now in his eighties, and  still painting!  The Singlehursts lived at  one time on Paisley Island,  und that is how their daughter  Paisley got her name. They  have three grandchildren by  Gordon and Paisley Plows,  who visit them frequently, and  are a great comfort to them in  their late years.  Music flowed from her  fingers to the keys of the piano. The theme was different  again today, as it had been different each time lately that  she had played.  It was difficult now for her  to reconstruct just when and  how these ineluctable recurring urges to play had originated. David had been away  for many months before the  first in the strange series ol  fantasies had taken form. She  had tried hard to keep busy  about thc house, doing with  needless care the little things  required to keep the home in  order for her alone. But always it seemed that in her  path from room to room she  had to pass thc window that  looked out on the sea. Must  pass it slowly and more slowly  until she paused and  stopped.... His sea.  Perhaps it was the water  that had whispered thc first  few bars of the fantasy to her;  that had told her to sit and let  her fingers play. It was nothing she had ever heard or  played before that came. It  was nothing planned, nor any  air that faltered in its How. lt  was nothing she could take or  leave at will. She played.  The music came, it seemed,  not from but through her. It  was as if she played from unseen notes, or from an unsuspected store of memory that  came but one chord at a time.  The music each time was different, yet the same. The  foreground moved and  changed, yet something in thc  distance seemed from day to  day to stand and tic thc whole  together. There was no beginning and no end to each day's  contribution, and she wondered why.  A letter had told her. It had  been written at sea. The lines  were an exposition of occurences, and the spaces a delineation ofa rhapsody of moods.  Slowly thc truth had come.  These moods, so carefully  guarded in David's mind,'  were yet so unconcealed be-  SUNSHINE COAST  REGIONAL DISTRICT  NOTICE  Contractors and the general public are reminded that under Garbage Collection and Disposal  By-Law No. 22(1) the dumping of stumps and  logs in the Regional District waste disposal  sites is STRICTLY PROHIBITED.

The letter had  been written on the day she  had Uist played, and what she  now read as words she realized she had days before interpreted as melody.  Life had been a weird dream  after this realization. Intermittently the undeniable call  had come, demanding that she  give it voice. She knew as she  played that a letter was being  written. She knew the incidents that had prompted the  writing, the story built from  them, and, veering like the  wind but ever present, the  moods that at once held them  distant and threaded them together. She found herself anticipating, not the letters  themselves, but these uncanny preludes that told her tales  as they were being spun. She  found herself awaiting thc  notes she would bc impelled to  play, wondering and imagining the fabric Ihat would be  revealed. As wild, as gentle,  as happy, as sad, as fleeting  as the thoughts of the writer  thc music came, and wrought  its spell, and died away. As  letter had substantiated fantasy, each note had meant  more, until they had told her  more than words.  Gradually there had grown  in her as she waited and as she  played a feeling of mingled expectation and dread. She had  awaited, yet feared what each  successive chord on each successive occasion might say to  her of life at sea with all its  perils. And always she had  wondered if today would be  the end, and what the end  would bc.  For gradually the music had  overtaken the written work,  and had passed beyond it. It  had told of a realm a step removed, and had discoursed of  things the writer could not  have known.  Not until today had the continuity of the process clarified  itself. From the start today's  presentation had been different. It seemed not so much an  addition to as a recapitulation  of what had gone before.  -There was a tenseness, as if  she were an instrument strung  too high; a thrill that coursed  a sharp, fantastic way from  her to her piano. She listened,  fascinated, as ends that  had been irrelevant drew together, as incoherent bits  shuffled and fitted, and as the  whole drew on towards an  unknown end.  Gradually she realized that  this was it. This was to be the  ultimate climax to which each  chapter had been building. As  the pattern whirled about her  she knew that today was going  to make an end, and she listened for the sign that would  tell her through her fingers,  pulsing and trembling with  the fullness of what they had  to say. what the end might be.  This was no petty happening  or mere emotion they were  telling of. This was a giddiness that rose above all life  and regarded it as curiously  light.  Now she knew how she  would tell. The music leaped  ahead and told her that.  The whirling kaleidoscope of  sound would crash a neutral  climax and would pause. It  would then either change in  mood and go on, or be ended  there.  Even as she knew how it  would be, the climax came.  The air shook and trembled in  resonance with the mystery it  held. From high to low the  notes w hirled through the window and were gone. The music stopped.... Silences from  the sea entered to join with the  hush of the room about the  still figure seated at the piano,  and she knew their talc.

A questionnaire was sent  to fourteen retail stove dealers in  thc six New England states,  asking them lo report on their  experiences during the past few  years. Their responses cover  sixty-seven different makes.  Even so, in a survey of this  type, wc are bound to miss some  fine stoves that are not sold  through retail outlets, and we  hope that you will not overlook  them when you go stove shopping.  Most of thc dealers recommended what are known as  "air-tight" or "controlled-  burn" models, since they are  generally more efficient than  Franklin-type stoves or inexpensive box stoves. This doesn't  mean that well-constructed  examples of the latter types do  not heat well ��� but they use  as much as twice the wood that a  good air-tight does to produce the  same amount of heat, and they  don't hold a fire nearly as long.  The air-tights achieve higher  efficiency by controlling the  amount of conbustion air that  enters the fire-box, and by employing various devices that  lengthen the path along which  smoke travels on its way to the  chimney, thereby extracting as  much heat as possible. Much of  this increased efficiency is  dependent on proper installation  and operation, however, so don't  expect the stove to work miracles  by itself. All woodstoves require  regular attention to work safely  and well.  In order to establish the  respondents' expertise and to  eliminate stores that sell stoves  as a sideline, we limited our  survey to retailers whose only  business is stoves or who devote  a substantial portion of their  floor space to stoves. We also  asked about installation and  personal use of woodstoves.  Nine of the fourteen said they  install the stoves they sell, and  all fourteen reported that they  use woodstoves wither in their  shops or in their homes. What  follows Is a distillation of their  responses to Country Journal's  questionnaire.  What have your customers  reported aboul the stoves thev  have purchased?  Most of the responses have  been favourable. With few  exceptions, what complaints  there were have been traced to  1278 sq. ft. three bedroom home in Cheryl Ann Perk, Roberts Cr;,  FOR SALE -  $59,500.

There were some  reports of dissatisfaction with  thc small firebox doors on certain Scandinavian stoves. There  was some unhappiness with the  lack of ash drawers or convenient  cleanouts on both American and  foreign-made models. Poor  workmanship did not seem to be  a problem, except in a few  isolated cases, in which the  dealer replaced the defective  part or the whole stove.  I want to buy a stove. What's  Ihe best one?  This is a question often heard  by dealers and it is impossible to  answer, because no stove is  best for all situations. The  dealer has to know what you want  in terms of appearance and cost,  and whether or not you want to  see the fire. He also has to know  the size of your house, thc height  of its ceilings, how well it is  insulated, and where you plan to  put the stove or stoves. He must  also know whether you plan to  heat entirely with wood, or only  want to supplement your existing system.  What Is the best Indicator of a  stove's capacity to heat?  Most stoves are rated in one of  three terms: BTU. square feet,  or cubic feet. Of the three, most  dealers prefer cubic feet, because  they feel it is the most meaningful to the customer. BTUs are  not easy to visualize and square  footage docs not take into consideration ceiling height, which is  an important factor in a room's  heat requirements.  Where Is Ihe best place for a  stove?  It should be placed as centrally  as possible, depending on chimney location, and in an area  where it will receive good air  circulation. Most dealers agree  that a single large stove in thc  basement with registers or heat  ducts to thc living areas works  very well, especially in keeping  thc floors above it warm.  What about Insulation and  general lightness of the house?   '  Very important. The dealers  all recommend as much insulation  as possible, with six inches in  thc walls and al least twelve  inches in the ceilings being thc  amounts most often mentioned.  Tightness is important to eliminate drafts, but one dealer cautioned that an overly tight house,  such as one built for electric  heat, might require that outside  for  air be ducted to the stove  complete combustion.
