Out in force  Pender opposes dump closure  The Regional Board office  was crowded with delegates  from Pender Harbour at the  board meeting held on Thursday, April 26. The delegates  were in attendance to make  plain their unanimous opposition to the recommended  closure of the Pender Harbour  Dump.  The recommendation was  made by Garbage Committee  Chairman <3��rge"' Bit*;  tjlbb's recommendation did  not call for Immediate closure  but was based on the Pollution Control Board's standards  for Class B garbage dumps  which call for thrice a week  burying of garbage  Howie White, speaking on  behalf of the Pender Harbour  Ratepayers and as a member  of the Area Planning Committee, said that there was  virtually unanimous opposition in Pender Harbour to  the closure of the Pender  dump.  "Our community is united  and adamant," said White,  pointing to the fact that 669  signature*-to-a-petition had  been collected in just one  and a half days.  Another spokesman for  the Pender Harbour group,  marina owner Peter Benja-  field, said "The present  system is the only possible  New principal  for Chatelech  system for our area." Benja-  field said that in the summer  time as many as sixty boats  can come into his marina  each with bag of garbage.  "You must listen to the  people who elected you,"  said Benjafield, "not to  your own opinion."  Danny Wolfe, proprietor  of Silver Springs Resort,  said that it was the happiest  .day of his life when ^Puder  got a garbage dump. "Give  this one a long hard look,"  said Wolfe pointing to the  fact that before there was  a garbage dump in Pender  tourists scattered their garbage all over the countryside.  Alternate director for Area  A, Vera McCallister, stressed  that Pender Harbour was a  rural area. "We don't want or  need the kind of garbage  pick-up that one needs in  an urban environment."  Garbage committee chairman, George Gibb, whose  recommendation it was to  centralize the garbage disposal of the Sunshine Coast,  stressed that if burning at  the Pender Dump was to cease  in keeping with the Pollution  Control Board's request the  life of the dump would come to  a natural end in the not-too-  distant future. "If the site is  closed and we don't get another one we want to be ready,"  said Gibb.  Utilities Committee, Harry  Almond, also stressed that  something different was going  to have to be done. A letter  was read to the meeting from  W.G. Hamilton, Regional  Manager of the Pollution  Control Board dated July S,  1978, which said in part: "We  note a flagrant abuse of the  permit criteria in that there,  is general use of burning  as a method at vekune-tedii**-  tion and treatment at each *  of the dump sites. Three of  the refuse dumps were actively burning on June 28  and there was evidence of the  same method being practised at the fourth site...  In view of the foregoing and  the fact that burning is specifically prohibited as a condition of the permits, we would  appreciate advice of the Board  on the projected need for  the four dumps in your Regional District and what  specific efforts are to 'be  undertaken to comply with  the terms of the current  permits."  Hamilton pointed out  that the matter was specifically pointed out to the Regional Board in a letter dated  January IS, 1975.  After the delegation had  been heard and discussion  taken place the Pender  Harbour garbage dump was  removed  from  the  list   of  A press conference was  called on behalf of the provincial and federal NDP candidates in this riding last week  to introduce Henry Lorraine,  national President of the  Canadian Paperworkers  Union, to the local press.  Lorraine said that the national  response was very encouraging indeed. He said that  he had appeared on behalf  of the NDP in Newfoundland  and Ontario as well as British  Columbia to this point.  "We have no long tradition  of political action," said  Lorraine. 'This is the very  first time we have conducted a  national campaign. It is all  part of the central campaign  launched by the Canadian  Labour Congress."  Provincial NDP candidate,  I Don Lockstead, expressed  himself as being very pleased  to receive this visible support  of the national and local  executives of the labour movement." The text of the national president's press release  follows:  j Port Mellon - The Canadian  Paperworkers Union, as a result of mandates by Local  .Union delegates to our National Constitutional Conventions and Policy conferences  has made a profound commitment to support the New  Democratic Party and its  candidates in the current  Federal and Provincial  election campaign.  | That is why I am here  today. It is my purpose to  ;help our local unions and our  membership to translate into  .action the responsible policies  InMoned by onr union  membership. In assuming  my' leadership responsibilities 'it is my intention to  alert our members and to  discuss with them the crucial  issues facing all of us, both  nationally and provincially in  British Columbia.  I want to deal first of all  with the issue raised by some  who suggest that trade union  affairs and the political  process are separate and  should not be mixed. The  realities of living in Canada  in the 1970's shows otherwise.  To posture ourselves as  "neutral" on political affairs  might appear to be a safe and  reasonable position. But  trade unions as Institutions  and their membership are  increasingly affected by  pervasive government policies  and programs.  The most glaring example  at the federal level has been  the imposition of wage controls by the Liberal Government.  At the Provincial level  we are haunted by the spectre  of a Social Credit Party which  if re-elected will in some  form or other introduce so  called right-to-work legislation.  I came to British Columbia  with some awareness of this  threat to the inegrity of our  Unions. But my visits throughout the province have heightened that awareness and  deepened my concern. Although some leaders of the  Social Credit Party maybe  soft peddaling the right-to-  work issue I now have a deep  conviction that if they  Ret  one more crack at governing  this province they will move  to undermine the legitimate  and democratic trade union  institutions which have structured to protect the rights of  working people.  Right-to-work as you know  is a cheap misrepresentation  of reality. It is not right-to-  work. It is the right to fire.  It is the right to hire at substandard wages. It is the right  to pit worker against worker.  It is the right to scab.  These two issues alone ���  wage controls and so-called  right-to-work - should constitute sufficient reason for  us to respond responsibly  and to clearly indicate our'  support for the possible  program and policies of the  Federal and Provincial New  Democratic Parties.  But there are other issues  and we have taken the opportunity to discuss these matters  with our membership.  The first has to do with the  general state of the economy.  The average worker in British  Columbia experienced a loss  in real wages of about S216  in 1978.  The combination of high  unemployment, wage controls and rising prices have  contributed to this serious  situation. Unemployment  is at the unpardonable rate of  9.1 percent. The wage control  program which hurt working  people has been phased out,  but believe me, it is ready to  be reactivated by either a  Liberal or Conservative ma-  Please turn to page ton  National Canadian Paperworkers Union President Henry Lorraine, second from  left, Is pictured with federal and provincial NDP candidates Ray Skelly and Don  Lockstead and local president Stove.

Pebble holds  highway  The new Principal for Chatelech Junior Secondary was  announced at the School Board meeting. She is Mrs. June  Bernauer of Mount Elizabeth Secondary School in Kitimat.  The District received fifty-four applications for the post from  which a short list of six were invited for interviews with the  trustees. These interviews took place on the weekend of April  21/22. Mrs. Bernauer is a graduate of UBC and is completing  her Master's Degree in Educational Administration. Her  eighteen years experience includes primary, intermediate,  junior and senior secondary. Mrs. Bernauer has taught In a  number of Districts including Trail, Kamloops, Vancouver,  Lillooet and Fort St. John. For the past twelve years she has  been at Mount Elizabeth Secondary School in Kitimat where  she has worked as a classroom teacher, a counsellor and Acting  Administrator and a career education co-ordinator. Her work in  the field of Career Education is known throughout Canada. She  was the winner of a Shell Canada Fellowship in Career Education in 1978 and has published several articles for the Guidance  Centre in Toronto.  Mrs. Bernauer has been actively involved in the B.C. Teachers Federation at both the local and provincial levels. She has  also served as an alderman on Kitimat Municipal Council  and as a member of the Kitimat Recreation Commission.  Skiing, golf and writing are her favourite leisure time activities.  Lot 49, Block R, District  Lot 303 and 304, Plan 15675  was the cause for some consternation at the Planning  Committee meeting held in  the Sechelt Village Hall  on Tuesday, April 24th,  1979. Lot 49 is part of a parcel  of lots purchased by Pebble  Holdings from the mortgagors, Glenmont Holdings.  It is directly East of Trail  Avenue and just about directly  across from where Trident  Avenue would come out were  it to be continued Eastward.  "It's a highway, and they  (Pebble Holdings) own it,"  said Alderman Morgan  Thompson. "I don't think  they're aware of the situation," he added. Alderman  Larry Macdonald wondered  whether Council would be in  a position to refuse a building  permit in the event that  Pebble applied for one. "If  it complied with the bylaws, we'd issue a permit,"  said Acting Clerk Ron Gibbs.  The whole matter had been  discussed with the Department of Highways, Morgan  Thompson said, and they  had just "scratched their  heads."

Let's be quite  clear about the fact that it is not the  Regional Board who is dis-satisfied  wilh the present four garbage dump  situation. The provincial Pollution  Control Branch has been objecting to  thc situation locally at least since January, 1975. Specifically the permits  for the local dumps do not include  the right to burn refuse to reduce the  volume. This is carried on in local dumps  in direct opposition to the permits issued  and cannot continue indefinitely.  Secondly, it is simply not true that  local communities are caught in a bind  between the Forestry Department and  the Pollution Control Branch with Forestry insisting that the garbage be burnt  and Pollution Control saying no burning.  This is a misapprehension which has  gained unwonted credence of late. The  fact of the matter is that Forestry wants  the garbage burnt only because it is not  buried three times a week as the Pollution Control Branch requires. Since it  is in fact buried locally only once a week.  Forestry asks that it be burnt as a safety  measure since weekly accumulation of  'Right-to-work'  Social Credit Candidate Gerry Gray  stated unequivocally at the recent  community forum that if a Social Credit  government was looking to implement  'right-to-work' legislation he would personally canvass for the NDP.  , We have at hand, Mr. Gray, a letter  from Minister of Labour Allan Williams  addressed to James J. Butler of the  Labour and Industrial Relations Commission of the state of Missouri asking  for details on that state's 'right-to-work  legislation'. Every paper on the Sunshine  Coast has a copy of the letter,  Mr. Gray, and it would appear, since  Mr. Williams asks very specific questions about how the legislation was  implemented and who supported and  opposed it, that the party yon represent  does indeed'have in mind such legislation.  The letter is available for your perusal  at any time, Mr. Gray, and we would welcome your comments after you have read  it.  The School Board move  We were led to believe, were we not,  that the move of the School Board offices  to Sechelt was to save the taxpayers some  money. Now it develops that the building  they proposed to use is unsuitable and  the site they proposed to locate it on by  Chatelech is also unsuitable and the  intention apparently is to buy land in  Sechelt to house the School Board and  Ihe Regional Board.  It would appear timely to observe  that if saving taxpayer money is the issue  the village of Gibsons already has land  available which was designated for just  such a use. May we clearly hear the arguments in favour of buying land in Sechelt  to house the School and Regional Boards  when land is already available in  Gibsons?  .from the files of Coast News  FIVE YEARS AGO  Cooper's Green at Halfmoon Bay is  on its way to becoming a Regional  District park as a result of a government offer to pay two-thirds if the  Board will pay one-third of the purchase price, estimated at $100,000.  Director J.H. Tyner announced  that Pender Harbour will get a  $90,000 health centre. Announcement  was made at Thursday's Regional  Board meeting.  Premier Dave Barrett announces  that a tourist excursion train powered  by steam, The Royal Hudson, will  make its Inaugural run between North  Vancouver and Squamish in mid-  June.  TEN YEARS AGO  Hon. Isabel Dawson announces that  the Pender Queen will join the Powell  River Queen as the second ferry on  the Jervis Inlet run effective June 6.  FIFTEEN YEARS AGO  A 60,000 gallon stave water tank has  been delivered on site for the Pender  Harbour system and will be erected  by the manufacturer.  MY-OOK, a publication of literary  efforts from Elphinstone Secondary  School, has made its appearance.  MY-OOK Is Sechelt for grizzly bear.  The Coast News editorializes that  the Saskatchewan CCF party has  reached the end of the line as a  political force. Could It also happen in  B.C., the editorial asks.  garbage at unsupervised dumps presents  a considerable fire hazard. If the burying  was done according to standards Forestry  says that no burning would be necessary.  It is quite simply totally uneconomic  to have four garbage dumps with full  time men at each burying the garbage  three times a week according to the  Pollution Control Branch's standards,  hence the move towards consolidation.  The people of Pender Harbour want  to retain their garbage dump at all costs,  citing the distance they would have to  transport it to a centralized facility and  they may be right. The Pender garbage  dump will nonetheless require the services of a full-time attendant to bury  three times a week and this must be paid  for somehow.  It is not a Regional Board plot against  the   people   of   Pender   that   causes  It is not a Regional Board plot against  the people of Pender that causes the  recommendation that there be but one  dump but a perceived economic need  It may well be that the answer will be  two dumps, one at Sechelt and one at  Pender Harbour but the kind of accusations hurled back and forth in the course  of the debate are both unnecessary and  foolish.

Owner-electors of School District  No. 46 will vote on the weekend on a  $211,100 building programme to  provide sites for new schools.

The manager of Baddeley Shows  had intended to bring a group of  elephants to the Sunshine Coast for  the Sechelt Spring Carnival. Upon  investigation, however, it was found  that the elephants were too big and  the ferry too little. They went to Vancouver Island instead.  THIRTY YEARS AGO  After a year of work, the new  water source at Gibsons has been  tapped into the regular source. It  is expected to double the amount  of available water.  Dr. Alan Inglis is leaving after  serving the medical needs of the  Sunshine Coast for three and a half  years. Dr. Inglis is to take a four-year  post-graduate course in surgery at  Vancouver general Hospital.  Vancouver harbour, 1929. The small schooner seen here loaded with  lumber was one of the many fascinating vessels of this continent.  Built in 186888 the MAID OF ORLEANS, she was already old when  Henry Larsen first sailed with her as mate for fur-trader Captain  Klingenberg in 1924. It was Larson's experience on this schooner In  Arctic waters that won him command of the RCMP vessel ST. ROCH  in 1928. In that year, the Hudson's Bay Company acquired the MAID  OF ORLEANS and renamed her the OLD MAID NO. 2. Years later,  under the name of JOAN G, her lines still graceful even as a hulk  stripped to carry shakes, this historic craft spent a summer at Gibsons.

L.R.Peterson  %&awmm*-  Musings  John Burnside  Slings & Arrows *^  George Matthews  A charming elderly . lady  came into the Coast News  office just a little while ago,  before the federal election was  called, and suggested that I  shouldn't write any more  columns or editorials being  critical of Prime Minister  Trudeau. "He's a big man,"  she said, "and we don't  have many of those any  more."  I wish I could in all conscience grant her her wishes  but I am afraid I can't. I  have an innate distrust, you  see, of what the lady called  'big men'. Whenever any  one man stands before his  countrymen, as Trudeau has  done since 1968 and through  the first five weeks of this  campaign, and says that only  he can lead us, I grow wary.  I was wary of Trudeau in  1968 when he swept into  office in that strange phenomenon we called Trudeau-  mania. He was the one, the  chosen man who could make  the French Canadians rest  comfortable within Confederation. Only this one man  could ensure that Canada did  not fall asunder.  Since he has been the  Prime Minister a separatist  party has come to power in  the province of Quebec which  is readying a referendum for  the people of Quebec in which  they will express themselves  on the question of remaining  in Confederation. This is not  Trudeau's fault. The social  tensions which have lead to  the re-emergence of the  dominant nationalism within  the people of Quebec are as  old as Confederation itself  and older, and Pierre Eliot  Trudeau cannot be blamed  for their re-emergence.  Nor, in fact, can he be  blamed for being portrayed  as the saviour of the country  back in 1968. It was not a role  which he sought. He was  appointed to the role by a  Liberal party which was bankrupt of ideas and desperate  for new blood. He moved  into federal politics with his  friends Jean Marchand and  Gerard Pelletier, portrayed  by the Liberal party as the  'three wise men of Quebec'  In terms of dealing with the  social tensions of Quebec  nationalism it was a band-aid  .splutipfl.,,���"$e_'ll.')l(gjsf ' tSrge  strong names from the province of Quebec and the pro-  lem will therefore be solved,"  seems to have been the  assumption.  Unfortunately over the  past eleven years of his Prime  Ministership, Trudeau himself seems to have become  imbued with the conviction  that he and only he can save  the country. It is the kind  of thing that happens to men  who are long in a position  of power and Trudeau the  social philosopher would be  the first to recognize it.  Unfortunately the corruption  attendant on power is a subtle  and a penetrating force and  the ability to recognize the  truth that power corrupts  is not an antidote against  corruption.  So, with regrets to the little  lady who came in to the office,  I must concur with those who  say that it is time for Mr.  Trudeau to go. It is the very  essence of democratic government that no leader be seen as  indispensable. In recent  history it has not been a  salutary thing when entire  countries have become  convinced that only one strong  man can lead them. One  thinks of such as Mussolini  and Hitler.  Mr. Trudeau has been in  power for eleven years and if  the essential problems  besetting Canada are much as  they were when he came to  power, then we all regret  the fact but fact it is and it is  foolish of Trudeau and his  backers to make the same  claims as they did in 1968.  He came to power eleven  years ago as the man who  could keep Quebec in Confederation. Quebec has made  more meaningful moves to  get out of Confederation  since then than it did  before Mr. Trudeau came to  power. It is evident that if  Canadians want this country  to be one they will have to  address themselves to the  problems that would divide  Please tarn to page three  *   Spring Celebration   *  # As April showers bring spring flowers  J to our Sunshine Coast In May,  5 our hairy Mascot, 'Tim Berdays'  ft hicks our annual bash away!  # This year our boy has cause for joy  J as he ogles his running mate;  �� Ms Timberdays, with Timber Boy,  m are poised at the starting gate.  ��  # ' 'Round 'em up and 'head 'em out!",  J ol' Rawhide screams with glee!

Certainly there are many good  reasons why such a service  should be offered. Whether  these reasons are sufficient  to justify the cost is open to  public debate but with all  the campaign promises being  made by various election  candidates, some promises  to look into the practicalities  of public transporation on  the coast would be welcome.  First, take a look at the  problem of impaired driving  on the coast. Is there anyone  on the coast who hasn't  had at least one of his friends  charged with impairment.  Given the geography of the  area, you have to drive a  long way in a straight line  to get anywhere. Once you're  there, the only way home,  other than taxi, is to drive  your car. An evening of drinking leaves the driver with  the choice between a very  expensive cab fare or trying to  drive. Too many people  choose the second option and  the result too often is either  an automobile accident or  impaired driving charges.  The threat of huge fines  and licence suspensions  hasn't solved the problem.  Given a 50 cent bus ride as  another choice, how many  people, who know they  shouldn't be driving, would  get home by bus?  Then we have the problem  of the lack of services and  activities for our young  people. Students who ride  school buses miss out on  after school athletic events.  Rehearsals for plays have  to be scheduled for noon  hours because so many students have to catch the bus  right after school.  In the evenings, young  people who want to visit  friends, go to a movie, go  skating or go anywhere must  ride with a friend, borrow  the family car, work to buy  their own car, or more often,  hitch-hike. I don't know  about you, but the idea of  kids hitch-hiking home, after  dark on a highway which is  probably occupied by at least  a few impaired drivers doesn't  appeal to me. A regular bus  service would go a long way  toward answering the often  legitimate young people's  complaint of not having  enough to do. Given a transportation system, drop in  centres, discos, or evening  school activities become  viable.  Then we have the retired  folk who don't have their o*n  cars. An afternoon of shop*  ping, visiting friends/ 'getting  to the ferry or just going for  a ride is just not possible.  Our senior citizens spend  more on cabs than any other  single group in our community. Those who can't afford  it just stay home, like it or not.  Also service would be a valuable contribution to the  quality of life of Our old  timers.  Then there are all of those  other people who either  can't afford a car or don't  have a driver's licence. There  must be hundreds of people  who need, but don't have,  access to convenient transportation. Come to think of  it, there must be dozens of  people who have had licences  suspended for impaired  driving who could use a bus.  Think of all the money that  is poured into private transport. Private companies  bus their employees back  and forth from work, single  occupant cars use up valuable  gasoline, cab fares eat up the  small incomes of poor people  more often than those who  are better off. If even part  of this huge investment in  private transportation was  used to set up a municipal  bus service, we would be  offering better service to  more people at a lower total  cost.  Geographically, we have  near perfect conditions for  a bus sevice. No place is too  far from the highway. The  less than 30 kilometers  from Langdale to Sechelt  represent the kind of long,  narrow strip of population  which offers the opportunity  for simple, convenient service.  The kind of service we  would need is something like  an hourly bus, both ways  from Langdale to say the  Wakefield Inn, beginning at  6.30 a.m. for the people going  to work, until 11.30 p.m.  for the people coming home  from movies or social events.  Dearly the cost wold be,  quite high. The service, like  all public transportation,  would have to be subsidized.  The economic benefits it  would create however, would  likely more than make up for  the cost. It would provide  employment for the drivers.*  It would benefit local businesses like the theatre,  restaurants, retail merchants  and pubs. A public bus service might eliminate the need  for the redundant services  Please turn to page three NEWS ITEM: May 13 has been set as the data for a nationally  televised debate Involving party leaders.

As  we know there are former  Dawson Creek and district  residents who can best be  contacted through your  paper, we hope you will publish tills letter or in some  way publicize this event.  The programme for the  week is quite extensive,  although many details are  still being worked out. Some;  of the items include a Horse  Rally and a Trail Ride, both  of which will as closely as  possible follow the route  taken by Dr. Dawson, between  the East Pine and Dawson.  These are to be held August  4th and 5th, and we expect  about 100 horses and riders  will take part.  There are also .plans for  picnics, non-denominational  Church Service, a barbecue,  a bus trip to the W.A.C.  Bennett Dam, etc. We have  also had a dollar size coin  minted, which will be presented to each registered  homecomer, and more of  these will be available at  stores, banks, etc. Until  September 30th, they may be  used as legal tender in the  area. On one side of the coin  is the head of Dr. George  Dawson, and on the other,  one of Dawson Creek's  new modern elevators, depicting 100 years of progress  in Peace River agriculture.  Information will be supplied  to any former resident requesting it. There will be  activities at Dawson Creek,  Pouce Coupe, Rolla and  Chetwynd.

I was employed as a Psychiatric Social Worker two  days a week at a Mental  Health Centre on the lower  mainland, with two day's  notice, I was fired; the result  of a government policy  decision to cut the Mental  Health Budget by 10%.  My major concern with unappealable firing was for my  clients. It was necessary  for me to volunteer my time  to talk with my clients about  my departure. It was a very,  difficult task with a depressed,  Slings(cont'd) ���anks  It gives me great pleasure  provided by companies for  ploy  their employees." It could  give the unemployed more  flexibility in where they could  seek employment. In short,  it could mean a significant  increase in economic activity  on the coast.  Obviously, a very thorough  study should be made before  such a system was put into  effect. Some initiative from  politicians at the provincial  regional and municipal  levels is needed to get something like this happening.  Given the potential for  improving   the   social   and  :o thank you for your part in  publishing the letter from  W. I. Hughes challenging  Matthew's views on education.

When the N.D.P. came to  power they stopped all work  on Highway 101 for quite  some time, and then carried  it on from Halfmoon Bay  to the Jolly Roger towards the  end of their term.  Further, and I am not sure  on this point, but when the  Socreds were working on the  highway they used mostly  locals, but the N.D.P. brought  in contractors from outside.

Musings(continued)  ^$50 CASH ^  it in a more meaningful  manner than selecting some  charismatic knight on a white  horse and waiting for the  problem to go away as if  by magic.  National Unity is the issue,  cry the Liberals. The economy  is the Issue cry the Conservatives and the NDP. Might  we, insignificant here at the  edge of the continent suggest  another catch-phrase, as if  we didn't have enough these  days. National Identity, say  I, is the issue here. Some  fifteen years ago despite its  small population Canada  was moving into a respected  position in the international  world. Lester Pearson was  winning his Nobel Peace  Prize, Canadian troops were  central wherever in the world  the United Nations was  endeavouring to keep the  peace, and Canada was looked  upon with favour as virtually  the only white industrialized  nation with a non-imperialistic  background.  Since then we have slipped  more under the control and  into the hip pocket of the  United States of America.  Canada is bidding fair to be  the first industrialized country  to reclaim the status of Third  World   or   under-developed  nation. We are increasingly  being used as a resource  reservoir for other nations, a  sort of a giant-sized Puerto  Rico. Is this an identity that  Canadians can be proud of?  Now it would be foolish to  suggest that there were any  easy ways to reverse this  trend and I do not so suggest.  It would be equally foolish  to look for one man, Trudeau  or anyone else who could  reverse the trend for us.  The plain fact of the matter is  that Trudeau, despite his  charisma and brilliance, has  been the prisoner of a Liberal  party which since the days of  Mackenzie King's 'special  relationship' with Franklin  Roosevelt has presided over  Canada's loss of national  identity.  If we would keep Quebec  with us we should offer them  more than a partnership in a  discredited neo-colony and  to do that we require, not  a 'strong man' but an informed and concerned Canadian electorate.

A Very Special Little Lady  Part II  During this period of my  mother's first widowhood, we  did not live exclusively at  mv grandparent's rambling  home. For reasons that escape  me (but probably due to  Gem's lifelong yearning for  independence) we moved after  a time, to an old stone cottage  near the centre of Islip, where  we lived for about a year.  I recall it as a rather cheerless  place (though not overtly forbidding like the peculiar  house at Maidenhead.) It  boasted a rather large back  garden which my mother  tended with the help of her  parent's general handyman,  Pal Maloney. It must once  have been the site ofa Roman  encampment for Pat was constantly silting ancient coins  and cither artifacts from the  I mg-unturned soil. Once hc  unearthed a gruesome device  of much-later vintage - an  actual man-trap of the type  once used for catching poa-  i hers in thc brutal eighteenth  i entury. At thc end of the garden was a high brick wall.  By clambering to its top,  Chris and I could peer down  on a farm-yard redolent of  manure; full of rooting pigs,  clucking chickens and belli -  gerent geese. Our sojurn  at the cottage ended roughly  with the outbreak of World  War Two. At this time, we  returned to my grandparent's  home.  Despite the fact that her  parents were by no means  wanting for money, Gem's  aforementioned independent  streak led her to seek some  means ot making a living.  Apart from her writing which  v. as a conscious effort in this  direction, she also learned  candy-making and produced  a variety of chocolates and  sweets for commercial sale. 1  can still remember the seductive smells of her candy-  kitchen. Unfortunately,  this venture was not too  successful financially. In  Ihe wake of her failure at  creating a cottage-industry,  Gem made a couple of forays  into the actual labour-force.  Initially, she worked as a  waitress and part-time cook  at a small cafe in Oxford.  Following  the  outbreak   of  Pages  from a Life-Log  Peter Trower  war she worked briefly at  an Armed Services Canteen.  "Cup of char and a wad,  luv" an Airman once asked  to her complete consternation  until some more experienced;  hand informed her that he  only wanted tea and a piece  of cake.  husband, pulp-mill superintendent, Trygg Iversen  and we moved to Port Mellon.  Mary had some difficulty at  first in adjusting to the  rough-and-ready milltown  environment but she was an  adaptable woman and she  managed to muddle through.  Not long after her stint  at the Canteen, my mother  made the most-crucial and  irrevocable decision of her  life and by the same token,  of Chris' and my own. She  decided to emigrate to Canada  for the Duration. The story of  that danger-fraught voyage  has been told before, both in  her words and mine and does  not warrant reprising. Suffice  to say that it altered the  direction of our collective  destinites radically and forever. We were compelled to  leave a great many things  behind including, sadly  enough, Gem's writings.  It seemed somehow, to nip  her authorial ambitions in  the bud. She was not to pick  up a pen again (except to  write letters) tor many years.  Our earliest years in Canada have also been described quite ��� adequately in  another place. Briefly, some  months after our arrival, my  mother (who will hereafter  be referred to as Mary, the  name she was more-munda-  nely known by in this county)  met and married her second  In January 1942, a third son,  our half-brother Martin, was  born. The birth was a difficult  one and Mary came dangerously close to death.  Virtually all that saved her  was a transfusion of her uncommon blood-type (RH  Negative) from the very doctor  who had made the delivery.  She was 37 years old at the  time and the memory of this  profound experience would  alwavs remain vivid.  Mary's marriage to Trygg  Iversen was tragically brief.  In the summer of 1944, he was  drowned on a timber-cruise.  My mother found herself  widowed again, this time in  a relatively alien country with  three children and no indul-  Sent parents to help her.  (ad the War been over at  this point, we might well  have returned to England;  but such was not the case.  My mother did receive some  financial help from this quarter but those latter years of  the Forties were largely  penurious ones. We lived  successively in North Vancouver, Gibsons and Vancouver. Here she purchased  a small house on Clarendon  Street near Joyce Koad and  Kingsway. Our monetary  circumstances compelled both  Chris and myself to quit  school. We ended up in the  logging-camps where I was  to remain for many years.  While living on Clarendon  Street, Mary made the  acquaintance of an itinerant  landscape-architect named  Tun Nowee. They shared a  common love of flowers and  gardening and he subsequently became her third  husband. In 1951, we returned  to Port Mellon ostensibly to  homestead 60 acres of scrub-  timber, left to my mother by  Trygg Iversen. I have no intention of dwelling on this  rather depressing period.  Nowee proved to be a philandering opportunist and my  mother was eventually compelled to divorce him.  We continued to live in  minimal circumstances on  the Port Mellon property.  Chris got married and moved  away. I went into the shake-  cutting business with a neighbour called Mike Cassin. He  became Mary's fourth husband. This again is a perid  of her life on which I do not  intend to linger. As a matter  of fact, I moved away from .the  area myself in 1956 so was not  present for a good part of it.  Cassin was a good worker and  tolerable-enough when sober  but he had a serious drinking*  problem. Alcohol invariably  made him vicious and abusive  and my poor mother was twice  compelled to leave him for  extended periods. In his final  years, Cassin became more  docile and drank less but  the marriage taken overall,  was certainly her rockiest.  After Cassin's death in  1967,1 decided to move back  home, partly at my mother's  suggestion. I was determined  to become a writer and it  seemed a sensible arrangement both economically and  otherwise. By this time, of  course, she had long since  sold the Port Mellon property  and was living on Bay Road  in Gibsons. With the remainder of a sniall English legacy,  I had Mike's old tool-shed  converted to a studio and  moved in.  Must Your Child Be A  *  UF 0. ?  *  Unknown Faceless Object.

Coast Cable Vision Ltd.  has made application to the  Canadian Radio-Television  and Telecommunications  Commission to increase the  monthly cable television  service rates presently in  effect.  The cable Company's  proposal would mean a $1.00  per month increase for subscribers between Langdale  and West Sechelt. Halfmoon  Bay subscribers would see  a 50 cent per month increase  if the application is approved.  The C.R.T.C.will be meeting in Vancouver on June 19,  1979 to consider this and many  other such applications.  A Company representative  stated that "the increases  sought would help to compensate   for   the   increases  in operating costs that the  cable system has incurred  over the past three years.  One of the more notable  increases was the B.C.  Telephone Company's pole  rental charges for this area  which took a 50% jump on  September 1,1978."  The Company also intends  to introduce regular Community programming, such as  the Pioneers Series shown  recently, within two years  of a positive decision from  the C.R.T.C.  Should the C.R.T.C.  approve the pending application, cablevision rates would  be adjusted October 1,  1979. For further information please contact: Mr, C.H.  Bobardt, District Manager  885-3224.

Conditions  will be similar to those experienced last week. Mercury,  Mars and Venus continue to  oppose Pluto bringing tenseness to present situations.  Mercury, planet of communications, is powerfully aspec-  ted. Looks like an honest  discussion of the true facts  will solve most problems.  Babies born this week will  try to hide a fiery, passionate  and outspoken nature. Their  involvements with others  will be intense, emotional  and, at times, explosive.  ARIES (March 21-April 19)  With Mercury, Mars and  Venus bunched in your sign,  you're still the centre of  attention. Others are curious  to know the secret of your  success. Tell them it's hard  work and common sense  but don't sound conceited.  Know that present sex-appeal  lasts only two more weeks.  Avoid sarcasm and rudeness  next weekend.  TAURUS (April 20-May 20)  Emphasis is still on quiet  places, private activities,  thinking alone. Check over  plans ready for new action  cycle beginning mid-May.  Boring situation ends soon.  You'll get a chance to learn  from past mistakes and  start afresh. Meanwhile,  secret involvement is near  boiling point. Friend confined  to home or hospital needs a  friendly visit.  GEMINI (May 21-Jnne 21)  Prepare for intense encounter with friend or acquaintance. Shared experience  should deepen casual relationship. Falling in love with a  stranger is never easy. You'll  have harsh words for local  officials, organizers and  'do-gooders'. Looks like  you're already losing patience  with group activity.  CANCER (June 22-July 22)  Focus is still on your  honour, position, career and  public image. By now, you  should have proved your  ability and established  integrity. Don't neglect  opportunities for promotion  or better deals. Continue to  speak out for what you deserve. Women falling in love  with the boss jeopardize  chances of advancement.  LEO (July 23.Aug.22)  Accent is on the higher  mind, philosophical thinking,  profound learning, searching  for the truth. Quest for knowledge is strong. Local library  is where you should be.  Letter from remote place  demands confidential information. It's time to investigate people and affairs  far away. Long-distance  phone call will confirm  your suspicions.  VIRGO (Ang.23-Sept.22)  Spotlight is still on other  people's money, shared expenses, insurance, taxes and  alimony. Question gently close  a       1 A       .������AAAAAAAA.AA.mAAA       A      A     A      ��  k \k itititifikikitii  Clje Cebarsf Mn  presents  Balladeer Extraordinaire  JOHN ALLAN DUFFY  Wed, to Sat.  8 p.m. till Midnight  886-9815  a a ... .a .a ... a ...�� a ,  kaT^nkw^kwal  associate's handling of joint  finances. Looks like you'll  uncover mistakes and sloppy  management. Withhold  criticism and  suggest  more  efficient    formats.     Unpaid  debt is source of weekend  worry.  LIBRA (Sept.23-Oct.23)  Expect intense discussions  with every-day companions,  marriage and business partners. Dealings with others  now need thorough investigation. Be aware that loved  one's increased sex-appeal  could influence decisions.  Passionate 'making-up'  should not be allowed to cloud  issues. You'll have to be  strong and in control. Read  all documents, contracts,  agreements twice before  signing.  SCORPIO (Oct.24-Nov.22)  Once again attention must  oe directed towards employment and health matters.  Temporary work-upset needs  probing. Tell bosses of any  under-handed moves. Over-  zealous co-worker could be  hiding information. Relaxed  conditions will resume.  Health set-back needs more  tests and investigation. Ask  doctor for up-dated facts.  Meanwhile, abandon fad diet  or miracle cure.  SAGITTARIUS (Nov.23-  Dec.21)  Dive into hectic social  activities, pleasures and  amusements. Dull persons  complaining of boredom have  another chance to climb out  of domestic rut. Romantic  encounters will be passionate  and spiced with danger.  Couples yearning for kids  should try a few early nights.  Now's the time. Unpaid  gambling debt invites threats,  CAPRICORN (Dec.22-Jan.19)  Accent is on a passing upset  at home. Family discussion  uncovers long-buried resentment. Root of problem is not  feeling appreciated where  you live. Why didn't you mention it sooner? Loved ones  will show concern, make  amends and soothe your  bruised ego. Promised  domestic happiness returns.  AQUARIUS (Jan.20-Feb.18)  At last, too many journeys,  visits, messages and requests  produce historic headache.  Was all the rushing about  worthwhile? Advice now is to  leave the phone off the hook  and postpone further appointments. A taste of madness  puts priorities in perspective.  Don't abuse neighbour's  generosity. Happier daily  activities resume soon.  PISCES (Feb.19-Mar.20)  Looks like your financial  position is subject to investigation or enquiry. Check  credentials of persons probing  into your affairs. Refuse to  discuss confidential money  matters over the phone.  Safeguard wallet, credit  cards and cheque books.  Purchase no mechanical items  or appliances. Fraud and 'rip-  offs'areintheair.

I'm talking about food,  of course. Whether you're  a junk food junkie or a connois  seur of haute cuisine, food is  never far from your thoughts.  The old chestnut, "The way  to a man's heart is through his  stomach" may not be medically accurate, but it's true to  the extent that nothing so  readily reduces a weary,  frustrated cynic to a blessed  state of smug satisfaction with  everything and everybody,  including the cook, quicker  than a really good meal.  Psychologists have noted  that eating well produces s  feeling of well-being which  often causes neurotically  unhappy people to overeat  compulsively in the attempt  to achieve this momentary  happiness. I suspect that the  converse is also true: a steady  diet of frozen pizza is apt to  make the great banquet1 of  life look more like a wafer  of pressed hardtack o'er-  spread with leftovers and garnished with cellophane. Not  exactly what the Chinese  sage Confucius had in mind,  I think, when he called food  "the first happiness". He  is even said to have left his  wife because she was an  indifferent cook. A rather  extreme demonstration of  the relationship between  man's digestive and emotional  equipment, but Confucius,  like any gourmet, recognized  that food is much more than  mere food for the physical  machinery. It is one of the  great pleasures of life and the  cuisine of a nation or a whole  civilisation is one of its most  fundamental self-expressions.  In Western civilisation the  fine art of cooking has for  many years meant only one  thing; French Haut Cuisine.  Hunched over our simple  stews and seared steaks,  mince and tatties, toad in  the hole, beans on toast,  (humble grub, but pure ambrosia in its own right), when  we hear the words "fine food"  we have still tended to think  of those unpronounceable  dishes whipped up according  to arcane fomulae by temperamental chefs given to bran  chefs, often called the "Young seen.

The recipes  of La Grande Cuisine often  assumed the existence of a  fully equipped and fully  staffed professional kichen.  With the new style the accent  is on simplicity and versatility and the amateur chef is  encouraged to vary the recipes  according to individual taste  and aesthetic sense.  If you like to cook and to  experiment with food, there  are a fantastic number of  paperback books available to  introduce the amateur chef  to every imaginable international cuisine. For those  specifically interested in the  new French cooking, I would  recommend The New French  Coating, by Armand Aulfclno.

By Terry Allan  and Jennifer Hopkins  This week we had a very  special visitor, Mr. Clarence  Joe. Mr. Joe arrived with his  private boat the Hunachin  Princess on Monday. The  special guests didn't end  there though, Don Douglas,  Chairman of the School  Board arrived Tuesday  by plane.  On Tuesday afternoon all  of us took a trip up to Hunachin, where Mr. Joe told  us stories of the village.  He also told some of us about  a certain leaf called Lily-of-  the-Valley that is used for  healing wounds.  Mr. Joe told us many other  different stories and legends.  He told about tribal wars and  feuds, and how the different  places up here got their  Indian names.  Mr, Joe was raised at  Tsoh-Nye. He told us that  Tsoh-Nye was the largest  village in the reserve; he said  that he used to spear salmon  at Deserted River and that  the hunters of the village  used to climb the mountain  to meet with the hunters of  Squamish.  Mr. Joe also gave us  some names for our buildings.  The girls' dorm is Tsoh-Nye  Princess and the boys'dorm is  My-ook meaning grizzly  bear. The cookhouse is called  Raven and the Classroom  Big Chief's Den.  Our second project has  just been completed. Some of  the subjects are Indian  weapons, owls, dogfish, and  trees.  The weather was great  this week and some of us  decided to go water skiing.  We didn't have any water  skis so we used a door. The  rest of us just sat on the  beach and watched.  We thank Clarence Joe  for coming up to see us. 1  think we have learned a lot  from his presence.

No-one  claimed the $50 prize which  was not offered for guessing  the lines missing from last  week's Comedy of Error.  For the wonderers, the lines  (following, "The Classical  Joint Coffee House, an  establishment") were, "with  which neither of us were  famili-ar.'' Better luck next  time.  Today, however I am going  to write about another error  as a result of which I am the  owner of two 16mm prints of  Eisenstein's famous classic  film The Battleship Potemkin.  It started in 1972.  At that time, I had recently  been appointed District  Librarian and Resource Centre  Co-ordinator for what is now  School District #46 (Sunshine  Coast), and a teacher of Social  Studies      at      Elphinstone  Secondary School asked me to  get him a print of the film  to show to his class. Eventually, I obtained one from  the Embassy of the U.S.S.R.  in Ottawa, and since I had not  seen the film I arranged for  a previewing at a friend's  house. The print was a step  edited (processed from silent  speed of 24 frames per  second to show at sound  speed of 16 frames per second:  version made in 1950 from the  1926 original. A musical sound  track had been added, and a  voice over translated the Russian inter-titles. I was greatly  impressed by the technical  excellence of the film and by  MB REPORTS: The second in a series of five.  In1978  MacMillan Bbeckl sales  were two billion dollars  What does that mean to you.  ?  Last year was a good year for MacMillan  Bloedel-afier several lean years. World  demand for forest products was strong.  Never before has MB brought so much  money into B.C. We did well and we're  proud of it.  In 1978, for the first time, MacMillan Bloedel's sales were over  two billion dollars. Our worldwide  profits were over $100 million.  That's a lot of money and it means a  lot to B.C.  We paid nearly one billion two  hundred million dollars to people and  companies who sell us supplies,  equipment, services, everything from  ships to paper dips, auditing to chain  saw repairs.  About five hundred and thirty-seven  million dollars were paid to the  24,000 people employed by MacMillan Bloedel.  One hundred and twenty million  dollars in income, property, sales and  other taxes is going to governments.  The more money we make, the more  taxes we pay. B.C. needs healthy,  profitable industries to generate  money for social benefits.  Our 17,000 shareholders���private  individuals, trust companies, insurance companies, investment  companies���shared about twenty-  four million dollars in dividends.  The rest of the profit, about seventy-  six million dollars, has been  ploughed back into the business to  make mills more productive, buy  new, more efficient logging equipment, develop new, faster ways to  make paper, haul wood, produce  wood products. It makes every  worker more productive, every job  more secure.  In the current five-year period, we're  investing more than seven hundred  million dollars in B.C. for improvement, enlarging mills, making  them work better, purchasing  the very latest harvesting machinery,  speedier transportation���to make  our products more competitive in  world markets.  We will be investing another three  hundred million dollars in other  MacMillan Bloedel operations in  Ontario, New Brunswick, the U.S.,  and other countries. These investments help strengthen this B.C.  company in world competition.  Twenty-four thousand MacMillan  Bloedel people have helped make this  one of Canada's-great financial and  business successes, from the people in  the forests and mills to the top  policymakers. After several years of  tough times we have turned the corner. From an average return on capital  employed of 2.8% over the previous  three years, 1978's is a gratifying 10%.  MacMillan Bloedel is a very healthy  company���so healthy that a few  months ago the news was humming  with attempts to take over this  independent enterprise. We believe it  is best for B.C. that we remain an  independent B.C. company.  tmmm\  This is MacMillan Bloedel's annual  report. It explains how our business is  going, management plans and policies,  gives historical figures over the past several  years, discusses future plans.

I was somewhat less impressed when the teacher  returned the film to the Resource Centre broken in more  than half a dozen places.  Most of the breaks were near  the beginning of the film and  being totally unfamiliar with  the Russian alphabet, I had  an onerous undertaking for  a couple of hours working with  a hand splicer. I'm not sure  that the results were entirely  satisfactory for I was not able  to get the Embassy in Ottawa  even to respond much less  loan out their film again.  "All right, then," I thought,  "since there's the demand  for the film (the teacher  and others wished to use  the film again), I'll buy a  copy."  Correspondence ensued  between the Resource Centre  in Gibsons and Sovexport-  film in Moscow with the  eventual result that Sovex-  portfilm offered to make the  film for $300 (Canadian)  payable in advance. School  Board purchasing policy  would not permit payment  in this manner from their  budget, so I paid the money  myself intending later to  reimburse myself. The correspondence took two or three  months. Sovexportfilm always  responded by telegram,  but they often took their time  at answering at all. Eventually  the big day came and I collected two cans of film in  professional thick aluminum  carrying cases. It took a  minute or two to- realize that  the film fed from the left  rather than the right which  is standard with North American films. It was not long before I found that the spoken  dialogue was in Russian 1  I could not buy this for the  Resource Centre's collection  of films. The other contained  another copy, sold in this  manner (two positive prints)  presumably so that replacement footage would be avai-  labe in the event of damage.  I owned two prints of Eisenstein's famous film!  A mimeographed booklet  with the Russian shooting  script was included, so I  bought the English Classic  Film Scripts edition of The  Battleship Potemkin and  matched the inter-titles  as well as I could. It was different in many of the titles,  however, and it was not unit)  I took a post as Librarian at  the F.H.Collins Secondary  School in Whitehorse that 1  was able to obtain a complete  translation. Alex Atame-  nenko, who works in the Tourist and Travel Branch of the  Department of Education  there, made the translation for  me.  I have had a tremendous  amount of pleasure from this  mistake and so have  many other people. I have  used it in High Schools, for  Film Courses, to screen for the  Whitehorse Film Club and for  numerous private screenings.  Since accidentally buying the  film in 1973, I must have  screened it more than thirty  times, and the last time I  showed it, I screened the  second print for the first  time. No course on Cinema  could be complete without a  screening of at least the  renowned Odessa steps sequence from The Battleship  Potemkin, and no film known  to me is a better course in  Film Technique. It has been  said that there is something of  Potemkin in every film made  since. All in all, I have to  regard my accidental purchase as fortuitous.  Family Month  The Sunshine Cout Chapter of the B.C.Council for the  Family haa Invited comments  about the family from mem-  ben of this community.  This Is the flnt of a series of  weekly articles to focus on  May aa Famlly Month.  Further opinions about  aspects of the family would  be welcomed through letters  to the editor.   By Nancy Denham  The Provincial Government  has declared May to be the  month of the Family. This  being the Year of the Child,  how fitting it is that we take  time to focus on family  living. Children cannot realistically be viewed separately  from their family life, and  society cannot be separated  from the families that comprise it...Families form an  integral part of the fabric of  society.  All around us we are witnessing phenomenal changes  in the structure of the Family.  The image of the family unit  as a mother, a father, and  their children is not the only  image that comes to mind  when the Family is focused  upon. There are single-  parent families where children  live with only a mother .or  only a father. There are also  situations where children  alternate living between the  home of mother and the home  of father. Some people look  upon their family unit as an  extended family. Grandparents, uncles, aunts,  and cousins are integrated  deeply into their family life.  We also have communal  families where not all individuals involved are related,  yet live together as a family  unit. This community stands  upon a foundation of ��� the  accumulation of several  smaller family structures.  What we learn through the  living-out of our family lives  is what we reflect into our  community. If we do not  learn the principles and accept  the restrictions necessary  to live harmoniously within  our families we cannot live  co-operatively or constructively within society. The  family is the first social  structure we experience.  In many ways it is like a microcosm of society.  We need to experience  security, personal dignity,  self-respect and the respect  of others within our families  (whatever the form of our  family). Then we are free to  discover and develop our par  ticular abilities. We are able  then to mature with a sense  of social responsibility as  well.  With the continuing breakup of couples and the estrange  ment of relationships within  families going on all around  us, it becomes more and more  obvious that family living  needs encouragement and  support. Some find support  in the exchange of ideas  with friends. Others find  encouragement within a  Church fellowship. The educational opportunities made  available in the community  such as parenting groups,  have provided needed stimulation and support for some  families. Other families  actively participate in community events or family activities and discover a unifying  experience in these. But,  people with family problems  too often pull away from  supports such as these,  instead of looking for supports.  If you have ideas or have  experienced activities that  are supportive of Family  living, would you share these  with this community by  writing to the editor?  It might be worth our  while during the month of  May to take some time to  reflect on the Family - on what  it means to us individually  and what it needs to be for  us all. Perhaps we all need  to be challenged to re-adopt  our assumptions about the  Family. And to remember as  well that we are together  members of one family -  the Human Family.  Nutrition  Are there any harmful effects  from taking large doaea of  vitamin D?  Yes, there are harmful  effects from taking large doses  of vitamin D. The Dietary  Standard for Canada states  that the daily recommendation  for children to age four is  400 I.U., children four to six  years 200 I.U., and older  children and adults 100 I.U.  Taking as little as five times  the amount of vitamin D recommended over a long period  of time can produce a vitamin  D toxicity. The symptoms of  vitamin D toxicity include  gastro-intestinal upsets, abnormal calcium metabolism,  and deposition of calcium salts  in soft body tissues such as  lungs and kidneys, which  makes the soft tissue hard and  inabletc function.

Community TV discussed  By Kelly Henry  The main emphasis of the  recent community forum  was the possibility of community TV. To pursue the idea  even further, a panel discussion was held on the subject.  Speakers included John  Thomas, General Manager of  Coast Cablevision. Rosalie  Gower, part-time commissioner of the CRTC; Maryanne  West, spokesperson of the  Steering Committee for  community TV, and John  Denley, Superintendent of  School District No. 46.  To begin the discussion  each person presented a  "brief" as to their interests  and involvement with community TV. Mr. Thomas began  by saying "I support the  effort fully and would support  a full programme effort by  the fall of 1981. Also, by that  time a programme director  could be hired. Until then,  he will serve as director.  Mrs. Gower pointed out that  cable casters started community TV and it should be implemented when the community  is ready and its idea is financially feasible. The use being  A tribute to  Mary Cassin  the voice of the people with no  access to the media; to share  ideas, information and as a  means through which the community can express itself.  Mr. Denley encouraged the  effort because it gives students a real world experience.  Mrs, West was representing  the interests of those who  were tired of seeing a box  revolve on Channel 10.  One of the first suggested  steps towards the goal of  community TV was to bring  the head end down from the  mountain. Hopefully soon, an  agreement can be made with  the School Board to temporarily bring the head end down  to a school building for easier  programming.  Next, the organization of  a Community TV Association  with involvement from Mr.  Thomas and the School Board,  should take place. They could  raise money for equipment;  and the hiring of someone  responsible for the equipment  and programming. Such an  endeavour would: ii require  co-operation from all the  interested parties and people  prepared to work. Or, as Mr.  Thomas said, "All the hard-  By Maryanne West  I don't know about you-all  but I'm bored to tears with  this election campaign.  We have our illustrious leaders and would-be leaden  marathoning around the country repeating the same  banalities from here to St.  John's. Each night's news  provides the same series of  pictures from meetings  of the party faithful happily  cheering the same old cliches.  Everyone glibly trots out  statistics, so many billion  here, (just how much is a  billion anyway? I have difficulty visualising it in dollars  and cents, tons of ore, board  feet of lumber or bushels  of wheatl) percentages  galore and conflicting polls,  Gallup and others. But no-one  tells you what base they compute from or what questions  were asked. The whole  statistical bit has no real  relevance if you don't know  what the original figures  were based on or who asked  what of whom I  ticated and hopefully even  more civilized and no longer  think the putdown is a sign  of leadership.

Isn't it becoming  counter-productive so that in  pure self-defense to save our  sanity and be able to think  straight we throw up our  hands and cry "a pox on all  your houses?" I don't intend  to be flippant, I too believe we  have some very serious issues  to face which won't just go  away by themselves. But  so far all I'm hearing is the  Coast News, May 1,1979.  Surely we need leaden with same old political ploys being  more respect for themselves used in the same old way,  and more understanding of  both provincially and federally  ware   in   the   world  won't  work."

The diminutive lady, so  familiar a figure as she did  her shopping in the Lower  Village, packed a lot of living  into her seventy-four years.  Readers of her contributions  to this newspaper have been  through her eyes privileged  to obtain a glimpse of the  inside of an Indian harem and  a vision of the Taj Mahal  glimmering in moonlight.  They have read her anecdotal  reminiscences of characters  who have peopled the village  of Gibsons over the last forty  years. Always those reminiscences were couched in kind-  Nor was writing the only  manifestation of Mn. Cassin's  creativity. She painted the  harbour of Gibsons from the  penpective of her front  room window in the Bay.  When a young man left the  Sunshine Coast and his candle  making business because he  could not afford the price of  materials she determined that  art could be made out of waste  materials and for a season  or two she created delicate  and intricate sculptures  out of the waste cans from her  grocery shopping to prove  her point.  Above all she moved  through her days with selflessness and love. Until the  end of her life her gallant,  frail figure, indefatigable  and indomitable went about  the business of caring for  those she loved. Until virtually  the very end of her days she  was interested and alive and  therefore interesting. She was  kind and she was loving and so  finally, through all the vicissitudes of life she lived well.  A gallant spirit who lived  fully and generously, she has  gone to a well-earned rest.

We need leaden  who are prepared to do more  than prattle the same old  rhetoric and leaden who don't  by to bribe us with our own  money or resources or with  the promise of election  goodies. Surely they could  credit us with being able to  see through that?  An incumbent politician  who hands out election  goodies seems to me to be  incriminating himself  surely it must be an indication of poor government,  of things left undone.  If, as someone suggested  the campaign Is the fault of  the media because they want  something sensational to  report and try to provoke  confrontation then we have  to ask ounelves who is  running the country and who  is setting the standards.

No-one  however seems willing to  address themselves to the  question of how to change  from our wasteful consumer  society to a conserver society  which would bridge the gap.  Do we make the change willingly or do we force the consequences upon children  and grandchildren?  Inflation, depletion of resources, fish, farmland,  forests, too many people  and too few jobs, these are  all indicaton that those former  solutions don't work. It's a  new ball game, one which  will have new rules and need  new ideas.  The politicians and the  media seem to be engaged in  an old time honoured ritual  which has little if any relevance to the concerns of the  ordinary people and we don't  even have a place on the  ballot to register a protest  vote.

Most important, Elphinstone Student Research  Productions wishes to thank  Mr. Dave Helem from the  District Resource Centre for  this time and patience during  this past year. We could not  have continued our efforts  without his cooperation.  Much to everyone's surprise, we sincerely thank  B.C. Hydro. Hydro officials  spent extra time and staff  on Sunday morning working  from 9.00 to 11.00 to have the  power on for our community  forum. We spoke to Hydro  several times and we were  pleased with their co-operation. They successfully completed the outage and the  problem which happened  after our forum began, was  an accident. The power had to  be shut down for safety  reasons and we appreciate  this.  We thank the editors of the  local papers for their excellent  coverage. We will set up a  schedule for showing our  tapes over Channel 10 and  will notify the public through  the press.  Elphinstone Student  Research Productions.  Please  contact  Editor:  May I please ask the Coast  News' assistance in reaching  those people who filled in  the questionnaire about  their interest in Community  Television at the recent  Forum but who didn't add  their names and phone numbers. Could they please call  me at 886-2147. Thank you.  Maryanne West.  MHTKARE.  The cost of dental care is a major concern in many  families... and Social Credit is moving to meet that  concern.

Detachments may well be advised  to tread carefully when  operating radar speed traps.  Constable Sorenson of  the North Vancouver detachment could tell them a story  of a leg in a plaster cast  for a while as the result of his  involvement in one of these  traps earlier this year. He  flagged down a North Vancouver resident who also  maintains a residence on the  Sunshine Coast and is a frequent visitor, and was helping  to guide her into a parking  lot when she ran over his leg.  The sometime resident of  the Sunshine Coast told the  Coast News that she felt  a bump and heard a yell.  When she looked back  through her window, she saw  the Constable writhing on  the ground. "You're on my  leg," he managed to gasp.  He was taken to Lions'Gate  Hospital where it was discovered that he had a cracked  leg bone.  The woman called the constable thinking perhaps to  invite him to a hockey game to  alleviate the boredom of time  otf in a plaster cut. The  officer did not return her  call. No doubt the Constable  thought that there had already  been sufficient contact.  No charges were laid against  the woman.  At the School Board  Responding to the almost  unanimous concern of Halfmoon Bay parents that it is  too much to ask a new teacher  to cope with six kindergarten  children plus 11 others aged  6-8 years the School Board  agreed to defer the inclusion  ofa Kindergarten at Halfmoon  Bay for a year until September  1980. In the meantime kindergarten students from that area  will attend West Sechelt.  Mrs. Heidi Goodman  spokesperson for the group  presented a petition signed  by 30 parents and outlined  their opposition to the inclusion of Kindergarten 'in the  multi-level plan even though  the Kindergarten children  would only be attending in  the afternoon. The parents  just did not want their children  involved in an experiment  which might not work.  Sechelt Principal Brian  Butcher presentee; a comprehensive report to the School  Board which may form the  basis for School Board policy  with regard to playgrounds.  The committee had researched both playground policies  and equipment in other School  Districts.  The Committee recommended that each school  should have a fenced blacktop  area 60 x 120 feet with basketball hoops and volleyball net;  a wall of rock or cement construction and a sand box.  Adventure playgrounds,  where required should be  designed, planned and constructed by qualified P.E.  teachers working with the  Maintenance Department  and parent volunteers at every  level.  Vancouver had found eight  feet to be a safer height Tor  the highest platform than  six feet because the children  recognised the danger and  took more care before jumping  off. Pea gravel to a depth of  five inches is generally con  sidered the best ground cover  in such areas although Vancouver finds asphalt okay as  the children learn quickly to  take care after a few abrasions I Slides must be designed without a sudden  drop off and swings and teeter  totters should be phased  out as early as possible.  The Provincial Youth Employment Programme has  approved the entire list of  thirteen positions - twelve  for grounds development  and one office relief for  summer work for a total of  $14,560. i mj snirf.

But unfortunately,  she has been spirited off  to the South for a three month  stint and will be busy tripping  between Paul Bunyan fair  grounds and the bank.  . At least, that is what we  are told I However, the story  we are hearing from the Bull-  buckets Association is that she  is taking a much needed  'drying out' session of therapy  down on the Old Ohio River I  You remember how worried  we were last year when she  disappeared after being  heaved out of the Wakefield  Inn? We heard she was on her  way to the Sechelt Legion to  slake an over-powering and  consuming thirst and we had  to call out our field troops to  head her off. Some of you old  timers may remember the  Pacific Coast Militia Rangers,  a guerrilla group made up  of loggers and outdoorsmen  who were being trained in  the fine art of bush warfare to  protect our coastline from  hostile attack .This was back  in the early 40's after we had  actually had firebombs and  other projectiles heaved at  us from submarines and  balloons, so it was serious  business. There are a few of  us left around the Peninsula  who had been under the  Command of Captain Ted  Osborne Sr., and I was one of  them. Lieutenant Chrismas;  .Roberts Creek Detachment; at  , your service, Sir! And this was  .the group who made up our  field troops assigned to  I track down our errant 'Sal'.  ��� When word went out to  ol' Ted he got so excited he  grabbed the first phone he  could get hold of, began calling his old Aircraft Detection  Corp buddies. (ADC, for  short). This was a group set  up to report all aircraft move-  ���ments up and down the Sunshine Coast and Harryi Winn  at Gibsons Landing was the  first try. A strange voice  answered but it wasn't  Harry. Next was ol' Chrismas  at Peter Roger 97, the Roberts  Creek detachment. That  strange Voice again. It wasn't  until he had called his old  number at Halfmoon Bay and  for the third time heard that  strange voice say, "Wot  numbah did you call,  pulease?", did he realize that  he wasn't cranking the old  wall phone - he was spinning a  dial I This brought him down  to earth in a hurry and got his  old woods cunning working  just like in the old days. First  he threw a cordon around the  perimeter of the core area;  then he erected a barricade  on Cowrie at Trail; then he  had (lis trusty group string  a line of dusky brown bottles  filled with high-octane hop-  squeezin's from the local  government drug store along  Trail Avenue to Hackett Park.  When 'Sal' spotted that first  brown jug and the string  ahead of her she began  popping tops and inhaling  suds like Jonah's whale when  he swallowed the boat, crew  and all. By the time she got  to the end of the trail she was  in the Park. Ted's strategy  had worked.  Well, the rest is history.  She walked up our spar tree  with a pint of climbing oil  tucked in her belt, shedding  most of her unmentionables  on thc way up, At the top she  dropped her climbing rigging,  did a jig and a handstand,  then plummeted to earth  down a spindly wire with a  scream like a banshee out of  the hot place! When asked  why she came down in such  a hurry, she replied, "I  shore was pow'fully  parched!".  Well, Sal, wherever you  are, the best of luck. And if  you get dry down there, don't  try to inhale that Ohio River.  It may contain cooling water  from some nuclear plant  and cause a melt down of  your reactor!  Now for the real reason  for spinning this yarn!  We had to find a replacement for Sal and we think we  have hit the nail on the head.  This being the Year of the  Child, and John Hindsons  feeling that we should try to  work some kids' activities  into our loggers sports, we  have decided to do it this  year. So all you junior loggers  from seven to ten years of  age, pick up your entry forms  in the next week or so and  enter the three events which  will be open to you.  First there will be Swede  Saw bucking and you will  be required to saw your way  through an eight inch alder  log. Get Dad to set up a saw-  horse and get practicing!  Next will be a chokerman's  race where you will pick up  a light choker at the starting  line, race to a log, wrap your  choker around it and set the  knob in the bell, then race  back to the finish line. If  Dad has a friend with a  skidder, borrow a choker and  get practicing!  Thirdly, the nail driving  contest. Three spikes each,  three inches long, will be  started in a plank or log. Then  you will grab your hammer  with both hands and pound  away. First to get all three  spikes driven in to the head  is the winner. Don't bend  them as you will lose  them as you lose time trying  to straighten them.  There will be nice trophies,  ribbons and cash prizes for  the winners and all other  entries will win a prize of some  kind.  So come on, Kids! This will  be your day at the Logger  Sports!  For the main eventers,  entry forms will be going  out in the next week or so.  Get them back to us early  so we will know if elimination  heats need be run off in the  morning. We hope to speed  things up for the afternoon  show.  Prize presentations will be  made between events so  we will have only three to  present at the end. Those  will be Lady Logger of the  Day; Weldwoods Logger of  the Day; and Art Williams'  new trophy, Sportsman of the  day.  Avoid ferry lineups this  year by supporting your  Timber Days Celebrations.  "Tlmber'rV - Down the  Hill!"  Police news  Sechelt to Earl's Cove.  April 20.

Public  invited.  Children's  safety  Instead of being hurt or  killed, most children can be  protected with a few simple  measures. This was the theme  of an address April 24 by Dr.  Ronald Estey at Madeira Park  Ginic. He drew on his experience as an MD to prove  his points.  Motor vehicle accidents are  a big killer of young children.  Speaking to an audience of  clinic auxiliary members and  friends, Dr. Estey showed  diagrams of child car-seats  and   other   restraints.  The doctor winced as he  described how he had once  had to pronounce an older  child dead who had been  jarred off the rail of a pickup  truck box even though it was  going at slow speed.  About poisonings, Dr.  Estey recommended stocking  Ipecac Syrup on the home  medicine shelf. Ipecac induces vomiting, and lately  the medical world has agreed  that even such substances  as diesel oil may be vomited  up - everything bu the caustic  substances like lye.  Teaching a child to swim  at an early age could save his  life, too.  Children can take responsibility for their own health as  they grow, the doctor agreed  when questioned. "The most  far-reaching decision a young  person can make," he stated,  "is about smoking. The next  involves drinking and driving.  That one is difficult - often  it is the passenger who is  killed and he or she may not  even be drinking. How do  you   make   that   decision?"  The Year of the Child is  a good time to cut out  unnecessary child suffering.  Coast News, May 1,1979  "LASmSIFIFDADS  SERVING THE SUNSHINE COAST  MODERATE COS!

Province of British Columbia  PUBLIC NOTICE  ROYAL COMMISSION OF  INQUIRY INTO  URANIUM MINING  COMMUNITY MEETINGS  The following Commissioners were appointed in accordance wilh the British Columbia  Public Inquiries Act:  Dr. David V.

Union supports NDP  continued from page one  jority government. Food  prices alone have risen more  than 20 percent.  We agree with the NDP proposal for a Fair Prices Commission which would have  the power to roll back unjustified price increases. Both the  Liberals and Conservatives  voted against such a mechanism.  We agree with the NDP  position that wage controls  are not the solution to inflation  in the economy. We need no  further proof than the experiences of the last three  years to set that issue aside.  And I have very good reason  to believe that if either  the Conervatives or Liberals  are elected to govern with a  majority we will once again  have wage controls.  We agree with the NDP  position on solutions for employment opportunities which  relates to the second major  issue 1 want to raise, the question of an industrial strategy  for Canada.  The time has come for Us  to focus our efforts on revitalizing our industrial base  in Canada. For example,  pulp and paper companies  which have made millions of  dollars in Canada should be  re-investing in Canada,  The high stakes game of  monopoly being played by  some pulp and paper companies as they go about the  country trying to buy each  other out is a disgrace. If  they cannot soberly approach  the very serious problems  facing our industry then there  obviously is need for responsible government policies  to ensure that they do.  We are pleased that the  NDP agrees with our union's  position that as precondition  to any public financial assistance to the pulp and paper  industry that a portion of that  money be set aside to provide  for retraining, new job creation, supplementary pension  benefits or supplementary  unemployment benefits for  workers affected by the industry's modernization  programs.  We agree with the NDP  position that the policies of  the Export Development  Commission must be changed  so that loans are not made  to foreign countries to establish industries which will  be in direct competition with  Canadian manufacturers.  Over the past three years  the EDC has loaned some 900  million dollars for construction of pulp and paper mills in  places like Peru, Poland, Iran,  Romania, Argentine, Mexico,  Czechoslovakia and, would  you believe, the United  States.  That's right, among others,  a loan of $67 million of Canadian tax dollars to Dow Jones  and the Washington Post to  build a newsprint operation  in Virginia, U.S.A.  In 1977 there was a glaring  example of need for federal  assistance to the paper industry in Canada. The Labrador  Linerboard mill in Stephen-  ville was going to be shut  down by the Conservative  Newfoundland government.  Appeals were made to Ottawa  to the economies of Canada  and, in particular, British  Columbia. These elections are  about human problems -  the problems of resource  development which affect  our jobs, the problems of unrestrained price increases and  how they affect our real  earnings.  We are concerned about the  arrogance of a Pierre Trudeau  who mocks and shouts down  those who criticize him. We  are appalled at the irresponsibility of Conservative Joe  Clark, posturing and playing  at politics while refusing to  say what he means or deal  with the issues before us.  We are offended by the  arrogance of Bill Bennett who,  for crass self-serving political  for "assistance. The reply was ' expediency, believes he can  that none was available.  But in almost the same  breath the Federal Export  Development Corporation  loaned S102 million to Iran  for construction of a liner-  board mill. How absurd can  you get.  We approach both elections  ever-mindful of the importance of our related industries  steal an election by calling it  concurrent with a federal  campaign.  Those are the issues we will  carry to our membership -  to the work place and to the  homes of working people.  That is why I am here to  actively support the candidacy  of Ray Skelly and Don  Lockstead.  Gibsons Auxiliary  By Marie Trainor  One hundred people attended a delightful Friendship  Tea held in the Roberts Creek  Community Hall on Thursday,  April 19th, with members of  the Gibsons Auxiliary acting  as hosts to members of the  other five auxiliaries serving  St. Mary's Hospital on the  Sunshine Coast.  On arrival the guests were  asked to sign the Guest Book  by the Secretary, Mrs. Pearl  Dove, and were ushered over  to the Punch Table, where a  delightful fruit punch was  served,  A large buffet table was  tastefully arranged with a  beautiful embroidered cloth  and a centrepiece of Camellia,  flanked on either side with  silver candelabra and  matching tapers. The table  was laden with fancy sandwiches and small cakes.  Presidents from four auxiliaries, namely, Geri Smith of  Halfmoon Bay, Jean Prest,  Pender Harbour, Pauline  Lamb, Roberts Creek, and  Chris Ward of Sechelt, took  turns pouring tea and coffee  from the silver service placed  at each end of the table.  Smaller tables were also set  up around which chairs were  placed in a semi-circle -  all facing towards the buffet  table. Polly Warn did an  excellent job of arranging the  flowers on all the tables  as well as on the stage behind  the buffet table.  Mrs. Joan Rigby, President  of the Gibsons Auxiliary,  introduced the guest speaker,  Mrs. Margaret MacPherson,  President of the British Columbia Association of Hospital  Auxiliaries, who presented  a very interesting talk on the  various aspects of volunteer  work during her term of office.  Her aim has been to try and  visit as many auxiliaries  within the Province as possible. Prior to Mrs. MacPher-  son's talk, Mrs. Rigby presented her with a Dogwood  Hospital Name Tag and a  silver coffee spoon on behalf  of  Auxiliary   members.  Attractive tote bags made  by Haitmoon Bay Auxiliary  members, were displayed and  orders taken from anyone  wishing to make a purchase.  Also on display Were the  lovely hand made quilt and  afghan, for which raffle  tickets were sold by Mrs.  Annie Metcalfe of the Gibsons  Auxiliary. The draw for this  raffle will take place on June  6th.  at 7.00 p.m. In attendance  were Alderman Larry Macdonald (Chairman), Mayor cations  Harold Nelson, Alderman Acting  Joyce Kolibas, Alderman  Frode Jorgenson, Alderman  Morgan Thompson, Acting  Clerk Ron Gibbs, Planning  Consultant Doug Roy, Sechelt  Citizen Helen Dawe and  representatives of the local  press.  The Acting Clerk was authorized to prepare an application for the 1979 Planning  Grant to help cover the anticipated cost of revisions  to the Zoning and Subdivision  Bylaws, a study of the parking  requirements in the downtown  core area and a study of lane  requirements.  Subject to a lane extension  to the West boundary and any  other approvals required by  the Regional District or other  government agencies, the  Clerk was authorized to give  approval to Norm Burley's  subdivision at the corner of  Ocean Avenue and Boulevard.  Planning Consultant Doug  Roy said that Mr. Burley  wished to construct a six  unit town house at the back  of his property. He could  see no objection to the proposal. At present, the property is zoned Rl, but it is in  an area designated in the  Community Plan for higher  density residential housing,  and the Acting Clerk is to  prepare a rezoning by-law.  Mr. Burley told the Coast  News that he has no immediate plans to commence any  construction and that it might  be some time before any  planning could even commence.  "She's asking us to do all  her homework," remarked  Doug Roy in connection with  a primitive sketch submitted  by Mitten Realty for a proposed subdivision of Lot  22, District Lot 22, Plan  140/2 (Gale Avenue). Doug  Roy said that he could see no  objection in principle but  that the proposal could, not  be assessed without a properly dimensioned plan. The  Acting Clerk was instructed  to refer the application back to  In the matter of procedure  for the processing of appli-  for     subdivisions.  Clerk    Ron    Gibbs  felt that if the new Clerk  was to be the Approving  Officer his or her opinions  should be sought. There was  some discussion with regard  to the length of time which  was meant to be implied by  the term, "approval in principle", and the Clerk was  asked to obtain Regional  Planner Bill Lindsay's opinion  in this matter for discussion  at a later meeting.  ^i.xi     YOUR AUTOPLAN  <3H&K    CENTRE  _____   Taking care of  _                  all your Real Estate Needs  Seaside Plaza  1386-2000    Evenings Norm Peterson  886-9121     886-2607  'Wa>WI  For Effective  Representation  Vote  DON LOCKSTEAD  A ul homed by Mackenzie NOP  ________________________________m  GARDENING  |* TIME i  lt)% aft  GARDEN TOOLS  & HOSES  During May  *���*&  Featuring This Month       I  ��� Bedding Plants*  ��� Fertilizer*  ��� Peat Moss*  Need assistance for quotations on your building materials?

The Sunshine  Second Front Page  Highways future discussed  President of the Sechelt Chamber of Commerce,  Emma Campbell, presided over the Open  House held Saturday, April 27, to mark the opening  of the new Chamber office on Cowrie Street.  A binDRL CEDRR H0IT1ES  921-8010  921-9268  Independently Distributed by:  M.D.MACKENZIE LIMITED  Display Home  and Office  6342 Bay St.  Horseshoe Bay  West Vancouver  V7W 2G9  Senior officials of the Ministry of Transportation, Communication and Housing were in  attendance at a supper meeting sponsored by the Sunshine .Coast Regional Board  at the Casa Martinez Restaurant on Wednesday,  April 25, Bert Wilkins,  Executive Director of Planning  and Steve Reynolds, Transportation and Planning Engineer, met with representatives of the Regional Board,  the Sechelt Indian Band  Council, members of Council  from the Villages of Gibsons  and Sechelt and guests from  the Powell River Chamber  of Commerce.  Mr. Wilkins recalled that  he had last met with theBoard  in 1972 at the time of the  controversy over the major  network of highways. The  network had, he said, been  worked out by 1973, Regional  Board Chairman Ed Nicholson  later said, "The proposal of  1973 was approved in principle, but this was later rescinded by a new Board. This  caused confusion to us, and let  the Highways Department off  the hook. The 1973 proposal  has been and still is used as a  de facto situation. Despite the  fact that numerous modifications had been agreed to by  the Department of Highways  and local government."  Mr. Wilkins went on to  explain that the Planning  Branch of the Ministry is  less than ten years old, and  he spoke of the long range  nature of highways planning.  He showed overhead projec-  tuals of old Vancouver illustrating roads such as Kings-  way, and Marine Drive still  in use over 100 years after  they were designated. "One  doesn't   switch   roads   too  easily," he said, and he went  on to illustrate the difficulty  by telling the assembly that  the long delayed two and a  half block extension of Blan-  chard in Victoria eventually  cost $4'/i million because of  very short term planning.  "The right of way for the  future is what the Ministry  is interested in," Mr, Wilkins  continued, "not in distorting  any land use strategies locally  desired."  Mr. Wilkins spoke of the  enormous number of projects the Ministry has on its  books. "The Ministry,"  he said, "is not about to run  in and implement the network for you. The Ministry has  networks all over the Province  in more than sixty different  communities, and waiting  time is ten to fifteen years."  Speaking of the 66', 80' or  100' highway allowances, Mr,  Wilkins said, "Traffic increases at a greater rate  than does population, and  Highway 101 has no more  capacity than a two lane  city street." He then turned  the meeting over to Transportation and Planning Engineer Steve Reynolds in  whom, he said, he has complete confidence. "Steve,"  he said,' 'knows your area.''  "We understand your local  concerns," said Steve Reynolds, "and flexibility is  built in." Harry Almond  expressed concern over  highway allowances and  wondered whether 100' was  needed for say Davis Bay.  "No," responded Mr.  Reynolds. "A 66' road allo-  out, however, that Saanich  was rural forty or fifty years  ago. "The 100' requirement," he said, "was bought  in for sloping ground. 80'  is the best standard," he said.  "When your area turns  urban, don't ever go for  66'. Go for 80'."  Regional Board Director  for Area F, David Hunter,  expressed his annoyance  over the paving of 66' rural  roads "while the Langdale to  Gibsons by-pass languishes."  "How many people have to be  killed on these dangerous  hills and curves on North  Road?" he asked. "The Langdale to Gibsons by-pass  shouldn't be twenty years  down the road," he said.  "We'd better get it done  soon," he continued. "When  might it be started?" he  wanted to know.  "You haven't even agreed  where it should go," responded Bert Wilkins.  "Which connector are you  going to use (Gilmour, Park  or Payne)?" he asked.  Steve Reynolds went on  to explain that planning is  followed by design. "After the  Langdale to Gibsons section  is the Gibsons to Sechelt  portion which is basically  the power line."  "Given agreement on the  design of the Langdale to  Gibsons section, when can  we expect construction?"  asked Al Wagner. At this  point, Chairman Nicholson  interjected to remind the  gathering that it was dealing  with technicians not politicians. Mr. Wilkins and Mr.  wance gives four lft wide    Reynolds then had to leave for  lanes and IT sidewalks, and    the ferry along with ("BJ")  this is a minimum require*  ment in urban areas, not in  rural   ones."

By Kathy Gamble  In the fall the Grade Sevens  of Madeira Park built an  incubation box and installed  it in Klein Creek. We took  the eggs from six female  chum salmon and the milt  from two males. All totalled  we put 18,000 eggs into  the box. This spring our  chum fry came out.  The box sits in Klein  Creek which branches into  Anderson Creek. There were  some problems with our  box at first. It split open  but we nailed it back together.  There were also some problems with the water.  Chum salmon are also  called Dog salmon. The chum  fry only stay in fresh water  a few days and go straight  to the seawater. We'll be  looking forward to seeing  some of our salmon but they  won't come back until 1982.  By James Hammond  The dog (Chum) Salmon  incubation box made and installed by the Grade 7 class  .at Madeira Park is a complete  success. It's the only one on  the peninsula that produced  any salmon. It's impossible  to accurately count all the fry  that come out as some must  have come out at night,  but in the 200 metres below  the box we have counted  1,025 fry, and more are in  the incubation box, still  coming through the gravel.  We started with 18,000 eggs  from six females and two  males. We hope to get 250  more salmon than would  have been more naturally.  They should be coming back  in the fall of 1982, or four  years after we put the eggs in.  # &&4  Gibsons Ready Mix  WORKING  IN THE COMMUNITY  886-9412  ���Drainrock   *Road Mulch  "Sand 'Washed Rock  ���Fill "Navyjack  Monday���Friday  8 a.m.���5 p.m.  SShSBSHsmm^^SSm^^ ���m  MMMM  ���M  m  Wildlife  By Ian Corrance  Can't trust a wlno?  A friend of mine, Bob Barr,  now living in Victoria, had a  renewal of faith a week or so  back.  He had left his dog Sativa  in the car parked outside his  house where he could see it  from the window. An old  rubby came down the road  and had a look inside the car  while passing, went on a few  t'eet then stopped and wan  dered back to it, all the time  peering up and down the  street suspiciously. Bob kept  an eye on him, figuring that  if the old guy stole anything  he would never be able to  run fast enough to catch him.  After a few more glances  around to make sure no one  was in sight, the old boy  nipped over to the back  door, opened it quickly,  rolled the window down a few  inches, closed it and shuffled  away. Bob had left his dog  in the car without any proper  ventilation. Thank goodness  someone's looking after  things.  Metal pecker.  Re my story last week about  woodpeckers attacking metal  pipes etc. Since writing it  I've heard of a couple more  instances of this strange  behaviour. I also got a call  from Harry Almond in Roberts  Creek telling me that this is  a fairly common occurrence  around his place. He teels  that the woodpeckers, far  from being dumb are actually  using our technology to their  advantage. Seemingly when a  bird wants to attract a mate,  it hammers out its message  on a tree or whatever so that  another bird of the opposite  sex, but in the same frame of  mind, hearing this can zero in  on the noise, and the species  continues. So it makes sense  to hammer on a steel ladder or'  a metal drainpipe since the  noise will cany further, therefore increasing the chances of  being heard. Looking in one  of my books I see that this  message is also used to mark  out territorial limits, so I  guess the louder the noise,  the more territory the bird  can have for itself.  Playful seal.  The editor's dog, Rab,  noticed a seal off Gower Point  Esplanade last week, so being  a dog took off after it. It was  no great surprise when I  heard that the seal started  playing with Rab. From reports, the seal took the dog  out quite a ways then along  the beach, staying just ahead  of him, every so often letting  the dog almost catch up with  it. After playing for about  fifteen minutes the seal  changed direction and brought  Rab back to where the whole  game had started, then  disappeared.  I also hear that it used to be  quite a common occurrence  for a seal to join in with the  Indian kids when they were  playing in the ocean. They  would swim amongst them,  dive under them and generally  have a good time. There are  no reports of seals ever doing  any harm to the kids.  Marsh Society meeting.  The next meeting of the  Marsh Society is on Thursday  May 5th, Room 112, 7.30 p.m.  at the Chatelech High in  Sechelt. The speaker is going  to be Keith Simpson. He's  the fellow who's been doing  the studies on the Great Blue  Herons in Pender Harbour.  The work he's been doing  up here is interesting. I won't  write about it, you'll have to  go to the meeting. He also has  a great sense of humour.  Proof of this is that he laughs  at at least 50% of my jokes.  Even I don't think that many  are funny.  Odds 'n ends.  Good news from the kids  at Madeira Park School.  The salmon egg boxes they  set up last fall are bearing  fruit. They had a look inside  them last week and counted  over a thousand young fish  happily swimming around.  According   to   John   Hind  Smith, two people from the  Salmonid Enhancement  Programme were up on the  coast last week. They had a  look at Husdon Creek and  found quite a few fingerlings  in it, (that's the creek that's  under the care of the Gibsons  Wildlife Club), at Twin Creeks  of course there were no fish  in the egg boxes. That plan  was abandoned last fall.  They had a few suggestions  about the state of that creek.  Acting under directions from  the government L & K built  the creek straight. Unfortunately with the run offs  over the winter running in  a straight course it's gouged  out a gully in the creek bed.  The suggestion that the Enhancement people will be  taking back with them will be  to change the course a bit  in the creek bed giving it  a few twists so that the water  can't build up too much speed.  If you see someone running  around in the bush in the early  morning hours with a strange  instrument, don't pepper him  with a load of rock salt.  It's probably only John Hind  Smith. He got himself a hold  of a parabolic recorder and  he's been running around at  weird hours taking sounds  in the forest (that is when his  tape doesn't break).  Reports about bears are  starting again. I hope they  stay away a bit more than  they did last year.  Coast News, May 1,1979. 13.

Terry Hutchings rescued  Ray Bernier and Emily  Henderson, after thc boat in  which they were returning  from the other side of the  lake overturned. Terry, upon  hearing the cry for help,  jumped in his small boat  and was in time to pull the  distressed couple out of the  water.  Coincidcntally both Bernier  and Henderson work for  Mitten Realty of Sechelt,  a 'competitor' to Wharf  Realty for which the local  Corps Commander, Major  Trevor     Goddard,     works.  So the Major, watching the  gallant rescue by the Officer  Hutchings, and seeing that  the rescued were safe aboard  Terry's boat, exclaimed with  good humour: "Why didn't  you let them drown...Thev  are my competitors."  The occasion was the search  and rescue exercise in which  over 130 Cadets and Officers  took part and was hosted by  our local Corps No. 2963.  The following Army Cadets  contingents took part: 34 from  Corps 2290, Beatty St.,  Vancouver, 18 from Port  Moody Corps; 22 from Sechelt  Corps, and servicing were  24 members of the Royal  Canadian Engineers. All  were under the command of  Lt. Col. Andv Conradi.  The main object of the  exercise was map reading  and field craft. The Cadets  had an enjoyable time and  received a great deal of  training in spite of inclement  weather.  On June 9th our Corps 2963  will be taking a boat trip to  Cloholm Falls where they  will be having a very instructive exercise plus ample  time for fun and recreation  arranged by Training Officer.  Lt. Bob Sommerfield.  The Cadets are continuing,  with range practice under  the direction of Mr. Jerry  NeUlaw Sr., every second  and fourth Saturday at the  Sechelt Rod and Gun Club.  The Corps parades every  Monday evening, at 7.30 p.m.  at Sechelt Elementary School.  and all girls and boys between  the ages of 13 and 19 are invited to join.  Doreen E.

The Harry Roberts Story  By Charles Merrick  One more pioneer of our  B.C. coast has passed on with  the death of Louis Harry  Roberts in St. Mary's Hospital  Sechelt, on April 4th, 1979 in  his ninety-fifth year.  Harry Roberts has left an  impact on all he has met.  As his friend Hubert Evans  remarked. "They broke the  mould after Harry Roberts  was made."  The name Roberts Creek  was given to the area about   wharf's  1892 for the Roberts family  Thomas William (Will)  Roberts came to Vancouver  about 1889 and pre-empted  the quarter section of land on  thc east side of the creek.  He then sent for his parents  Thomas and Charlotte to join  him in Canada and share in  the development of a new  homestead.  Harry came later from Red-  ditch, England, with his father  Frank, his brother Tom and  Tom's wife Nancy,his younger  brother Bill, and sister Ida.  They crossed Canada by  C.P.R. arriving in Vancouver  on Harry's sixteenth birthday,  June 29,1900. They stayed  over  for  the  First  of July  now stands, and pointing  east along the shore saying:  "One day I hope you will  help get many little houses  built along that sunny shore  where little children can play  in the sunshine. I dream of  seeing a government wharf  and steamers coming every  day. 1 want you to have the  place named the Sunshine  Belt." Later, soon after  the wharf was built, Harry  did paint "Sunshine Belt"  in big white letters on the  bright   red   freight  shed. This dream of his  granny's has no doubt influenced many of Harry's  activities around the Creek.  From as early as 1908 until  the early twenties, Roberts  Creek was a favourite summer  camping area and Harry  Roberts was a well known  figure as he met the steamer  at the Government float  for passengers and freight  in a small boat. When the  float broke away during  the winter storms and was  not replaced, Harry used  "The Midget  of his skiffs to meet the  steamer during the week,  and for week-ends he used  in The Castle waiting for the  steamer to call the next day.  During this heyday of the  development of the settlement  Harry still found time to build  a thirty-six foot yawl which  he kept in the creek mouth.  He eventually named the yawl  Chack Chack which meant  Bald Eagle in Indian dialect.  He carved the head of an  eagle in the bracket supporting the yawl's bowsprit,  revealing the symbolic  relationship of this unique  craft to the freedom loving  skipper of Chack Chack. Many  local youngsters, visiting  campers and the girls from the  Kewpie Kamp have happy  memories of trips aboard  Chack Chack. Harry loved  helping the young people  and some of his happies hours  were spent with them. Many  a young sailor or boat builder  got their inspiration and skilful advice from "Uncle  Harry' as he was known to all.  However, as more people  and increased business in  the community hampered  or often one Harry's freedom, he longed  for more open spaces and  new challenges so the early  spring of 1925 saw him with  * -ej��  "The Midget" to push his  celebration with his grand- lumber scow loaded with SO  parents who had moved to the to 75 passengers alongside  head of False Creek.

In   summer   a    steamer fyi.  called every day with extra  boats for week-end campers.  Sometimes as many as three  hundred campers would  be  waiting for a steamer on the  Roberts Creek dock of a Sunday night. After the wharf  was  built Harry  kept  pace  with the times by building  a new larger store ��� his third  store building - on the east  side of the wharf. This added  much comfort for passengers  waiting for the steamer on  for his bride Birdie Sissons of w'ntery days as ample inside  Sechelt.

His philosophy of life was  greatly influenced by the  natural laws his maternal  granny had taught him as  a small boy in England.  Some seventy years later  he wrote and published a  booklet "Natural Laws". He  also wrote and published the  Trail of Chack Chack, the  fascinating story of his first  five years on the B.C. coast.  In 1950 he started to build  at Sun Ray his third sail boat  Chack Chack III which unfortunately was never launched.  It too had its bowsprit support  of a large and more detailed  carved eagle head. ;  After his wife Marjorie's  death in 1968 he lived alone at  Sun Ray on Nelson Island  until three years ago when  Mr. and Mrs. H.T.Frederick-  son of Hidden Basin took him  to their home so that he  could remain on Nelson Island  in the wilderness beauty he  cherished. Seaplane transportation connects them to  the outside world. It is interesting to note that Harry in  his nineties took to flying in  and out of Hidden Basin in a  small aircraft as jubilantly  as he took to the sea in his  to adapt to an environment  where he felt content. He  often expressed his appreciation of the hospital staff's  care for him and the interest  they had taken in his long  journey down life's road.  His great-nephew Paul  Merrick to whom "Uncy"  had been an inspiration and  from whom Paul as a young  boy, had learned to design  and build his first skiff from  lumber cut in Uncy's sawmill  from a beachcombed cedar  log at Sun Ray, expressed his  gratitude for knowing Uncle  Harry by designing, and with  the help of his father, handcrafting a beautiful all wooden  casket for their Uncle's  last resting place. On the lid  Paul carved an Eagle's head.  A fitting tribute to Skipper  Chack Chack's free spirit.  The funeral service for Mr.  Roberts was held at the Devlin  Women's  Funeral Home on April 12th  to Sea View Cemetery,  Roberts Creek, with the  Rev. Ten Dinsley officiating.  Many friends and relatives  gathered together to pay  their  last  respects   to  this  beloved  Pioneer of Roberts  Creek.  Harry Roberts is survived  by his sister Mrs. Ida Cope-  land in Victoria (now 92 years  old); son Lee Roberts, daugh  ters Yolana Mortinsen and  Zoe Llovd, and their children  nieces and nephews and their  children, one of whom remarked lovingly "It seems  like the end of an era, we've  known him all our lives."

Roberts Creek. This canoe  was made especially for  Harry's grandparents by  the Sechelt Indians. They  spent two nights enroute  before landing on the beach  of Roberts Creek. This commenced Harry's seventy-  nine years of close association  with life on the B.C. coast  and the development of  Roberts Creek in particular.  In 1905 Harry built his first  log house near the east bank  of the mouth of Roberts Creek  his niece Marjorie Roberts,  daughter of Tom, leaving  Roberts Creek to live aboard  Chack Chack while he built  a small house for a winter  harbour on Merry Island.  From this base they cruised  of the Creek mouth's improvement.  rent. At this time he was also  building  a   new   home   for  In 1907 Harry built his first  store, about the size of a  garage with a big sign  "STORE" on the south  gable to attract passing  boats. Supplies, mail and  passengers came by the  Union S.S. Comox which  Harry met with a skiff and  later a power boat "The  Midget".  About 1910 he started a  sawmill in the Creek mouth,  supplying lumber for the  many houses now being built  in the Roberts Creek area,  which was fast becoming  home and summer home sites  for Vancouver people. He  supplied the lumber for the  thirteen bridges built when  thc Lower Road was put  through and also the lumber  for the first Government  Wharf in 1914. He shipped  lumber by scow as far as  Buccaneer Bay and Pender  Harbour.  He built the "LHR", a  combined work and pleasure  boat which took him to Vancouver for supplies as well as  on many holiday trips with  Mrs. Roberts to Parksville  V.I. where relatives of his  wife had located.  Harry has often told the  story of his grandmother  Roberts in 1901, taking him  to a point where the wharf  himself, a two storey building  with an octagonal shaped  conservatory attached.  Later when a turret was added  this home became known as  "The Castle".  Many  unex-  His first cottage on Nelson  Island was built in Chack  Chack Cove which provided  a mooring for Chack Chack  and the second sail boat he  had built, a schooner called  "Leyo" after his two children,  later he built a larger and  more comfortable house overlooking the open sea of  Malaspina Strait and the great  granite rocks of Cape Cockburn, a new home for his  wife Cherry and their children  Yolana, Lee and Zoe.  This homestead "Sun Ray"  in the wilderness with its  beautiful house made of large  logs, granite rock, five split  level floors of cement and  unique sunray windows and  its bountiful garden and orchard epitomized Harry's  tremendous energy, creativity, imagination, skill, love  of beauty and reverence for  Chack Chacks - maybe he  felt as free as an eagle.  Two years ago the Roberts  Creek History Committee  writing "Remembering  Roberts Creek" had an unexpected surprise when  Harry Roberts "flew in"  to their meeting being held  at the home of Charles and  Betty Merrick. Their home is  situated on part of the original  piece of Harry's property  next to the Castle at Roberts  Creek. Harry with his trim  grey beard and wearing his  tartan tam-o-shanter and  carrying a crooked Irish  walking stick, certainly looked  the part of the Old Laird  of Roberts Creek. The Committee had the honour of  chatting with one of the  pioneer Roberts they had been  writing about, and of helping  Harry celebrate his ninety-  third birthday. They will  long remember that day.  Harry has been in St.  Mary's Hospital, Sechelt for  the past three months. Although his strength was  gradually failing, his handshake was as firm and strong  as ever. He always had  wonderful hands that seemed  able to perform anything  thought   up   by   his   active  By bene Bushfield  ��� The Women's Aglow  Fellowship met April 17 in  Harmony Hall for a delicious lunch of soup and sandwiches and again enjoyed  a time of singing, rejoicing  and sharing with old and  new friends.  Our guest speaker this day  was Joan James from Vancouver who delighted us all  with her message on certain  crisis areas in our lives,  vividly illustrating the essence  of the true Gospel of Jesus  Christ, and the reality of being  "born again" into the kingdom of God. Joan was a  registered nurse for many  years along with ten years  of counselling in the field  of occupational health. Her  talents and prowess as a  speaker has taken her to  places as far off as Japan,  Taiwan, India and Hong  Kong and we were enthralled  as she related how God is  moving in these areas.  The Gibsons Chapter of  Women's Aglow recently  received their charter and at  our next meeting members  of our Area Board will be in  attendance giving us an  opportunity to learn more  about the aims and purposes  of the Fellowship which now  has over a thousand chapters world-wide with more  being added daily. A very  warm invitation is extended  to ladies of all ages to attend  this luncheon meeting starting  at 11.30 a.m., May 15th in  Harmony Hall, Gibsons.  There is a babysitting service  and anyone needing further  information or transport may  phone 886-7426 or 885-3356.

We went to a quaint  little place on the waterfront. We had a few drinks,  and without any word about  where and what we were  going to do, we went to his  sail boat ��� unspoken matters  but a fleeting desire. It was  fun and unreal. The silk  sheets kept tipping us one  way and another as the boat  gently swung at anchor.  Now since it was such a delightful experience I find  myself thinking of him more  and more. I keep wondering  if I'm in love or just infatuated. Must 1 wait 'til he  calls me? I feel like making  a move but don't want to  spoil it.  Confused and Bemused.  Dear Confused and Bemused,  Yes! Weill Sounds far out.  Part IB  By David Hobson  Number 24 (I'm slightly  ashamed to say that I remember her number and forget  her name) and I walked along  a corridor, speaking quietly.  Her voice was soft and  smooth, and she wore a thin,  almost submissive smile.  Her face was very attractive  and serene, as was her body:  small and richly curved, it  moved with the slow grace  of a cat. Finally we stopped  at one of a series of identical  doors and went into what I  assumed was one of a series  of identical rooms - small,  rectangular, softly lighted,;  with a deep bathtub on one  side and a high bed on the  other. And it is in this setting  that I experienced the age-  old Oriental ritual of female  massaging male. It is thus:  I am not allowed to undress  myself as this is part of the  . job of thc masseuse. While  she unbuttons and unties,  steaming water fills the tub.  Shed of cumbersome rags,  I gingerly lower myself into  the scalding water, adjust  to the heat and allow my body  to go limp in the hands of the  maiden who scrubs and  scours, totally unperturbed.  Once out of the tub, I'm  vigourously dried with a huge  towel, followed by a generous  and firm application of a  soft lightly perfumed powder.  So much for the preliminaries.  For the next thirty odd minutes (it's not usually that  long, if at all, for those customers paying for other  services, I am advised and  you have guessed) I am  rubbed, squeezed, kneaded,  punched, twisted, tied,  untied, untwisted and as a  finale trampled upon, the  small feet expertly applying  pressure to otherwise unyielding muscles. It is, to say  the least, exhilarating. My  body feels magically both  relaxed and rejuvenated.  Forgotten are cramped two  day rides on stinking trains,  hours   of   walking   through  thick, dripping heat, half  sleepless nights on mattress-  less beds. I'm aglow in the  glory of senses and nerves  pummeled into repletion.  But we don't sleep forever.  I felt her hand slowly stroking  my head and turned to see  a lovely face steeped in frustration and sadness. She  seemed to take a liking to me,  perhaps because I may have  been the first person in a  while who did not defile  her beauty, and treated her  with some courtesy and respect. Whatever, she seemed  willing to speak to me and in  her fine English told me of  her past. She was from a small  village in Laos and had been  "sold" by her parents six  years previously (when she  was a girl of 12 - and don't  make harsh judgements of  her parents: at that time parts  of Laos were being levelled  by U.S. bombers - I doubt  she nor her family were  strangers to death) to some  people who deal in human  bodies. It was not truly a  sale as the people who paid  her extremely poor parents  did not own any part of her  but her innocence and fear.  She could have easily ran  away from the then strange  Bangkok when she was younger, but where to? And as  she grew older she became  more used to the lifestyle, the  steady money, the benefits,  and thought less of leaving,  just as the dealers had no  doubt expected.  I asked her if she had a  boyfriend, and she said,  "No, I wouldn't want one,  not the way I am. But some  girls do, some also have  children. And many look  for Americans to marry, it's  an easy way out." Did she  want to marry an American?  "No, I want to stay here, I  mean I want to go back to  Laos, but now I can't."  (Since she was taken from her  village, Laos toppled, like a  domino, under thc Red sway.)  Did she want to marry at  all? She looked very tired...  "I don't know, sometimes  I think of children and a home  ...but I just don't know."  Ten minutes from the hour  there was a knock and the  hostess entered, carrying  her tablet and looking at  her watch. She said, "You  still have time you know.  Only ten dollars." I shook my  head. "What's the matter  with you, you're a young man,  like girls, she is very nice,  yes?"  Yes, she certainly was very  nice and I hope any of you  males reading this who  might someday visit Bangkok  do not find her.  Fitness  Fitness and Recreation  Co-ordinator Fran Berger  presented her report to the  Regional Board sponsoring  body at the regular meeting  held on April 26. Berger  pointed out that even with  conservative estimates the  Recreation Service had again  achieved a ten-percent figure  of participation, that is that  at least ten percent of the  stable population of the Sunshine Coast have participated.  In pointing out that the Fitness and Recreation Service  may cease to exist if funding  isn't found for next year,  Director George Gibb observed that the time may be  coming when use of public  money for recreation may  be justified. "These participation figures indicate that  the people want it," said  Gibb. __  "Gibsons Public  (Library  Tuesday 2-4 p.m.    i  Wednesday 2-4 p.mj  Thursday 2-4 &     I  That's part of it, you know.  Unusual but attractive setting-  some one you are at ease  with - a world apart from the  familiar can enhance a chance  encounter, making it more  glamourous than you're  used to. I'd reserve judgement and see what follows.  The fun of the slippery  sheets, the sound of the water,  the rocking boat makes it  all fun. I'm afraid it needs  developing.  Dear Ann,  I'm having an affair with  one of my husband's and my  acquaintance. We go to motels,  ones that are out of town and  down back alleys. I'm getting  to wonder if he's ashamed of  me or why he's so cautious.  I can't help it, I'd like him  to be more bold, to take me  dancing or to dinner first.  We meet in another town  and I must go home atone.  It is sort of a let down, and  it seems he only wants one  thing from me. I have a  dissatisfied feeling. When  he calls I feel this response  and can't say no - I wonder  how I could get my feelings  out in the open without being  too pushy.  Compromised.  Dear Compromised,  That's the right word.  Perhaps he thinks that's all  you want.  Try making reservations  at a dine and dance restaurant and meet him there.  You could try without saying  anything. If he refuses,  then you may have to speak  up.  Dear Ann,  I followed your advice of  the past. 1 bought new and  colourful underwear, and a  different perfume.  It didn't  Opera  Another opera success for  Lyn Vernon. Lyn is receiving  "rave" reviews for her portrayal of Carmen in Bizet's  Carmen being performed by  the Canadian Opera Company  in Toronto. After three more  performances Lyn will return  to her home here in Gibsons  and her second love - horse  riding.  do for my husband what I  expected. Instead of being  pleased and turned on he  became suspicious and  jealous - thought I must love  someone else and be dressing  for him. I am at a loss to  understand my husband.  Wondering.  Dear Wondering,  It's an old cliche that someone in love or with a lover  will buy attractive under  garments. Your husband may  have heard or read that somewhere. It's a shame if you  have to wear white cotton  underwear with holes in it  to convince him you are faithful. Your good intentions  back-fired. Maybe he's a bit  paranoid. Give him mega-  vitamins and see if you  can bring up his tone. He's  in a winter mood. It's lovely  weather and time to break  out and be light hearted. He  should have appreciated your  concern.  Dear Ann,  We have been married  five years. Some years were  really fun. Our happiness  has seemed to bog down  and be heavy. For instance he  speaks harshly to me, and  quarrels easily, then is surprised when I don't want  sex with him. I feel a wall is  growing between us.  Worried.  Dear Worried,  Yes the old saying still  goes - try a little tenderness.  Women never get over  wanting to be wooed - a  pet, a kiss through the day -  someone bringing a flower  or a small gift - turns the  person towards their mate,  particularly women. So much  of sex is in the mood, the mind  of a woman, and she needs  warmth and time to build  up to the act.  It's like the story of the  Wind challenging the Sun to  get a man to remove his  his coat. The Wind blew and  blew but the man only held  his coat more tightly around  him. The Sun shone warmly,  and soon the Man took his  coat off. So as in water, face  answers to face, so does  heart of man to man, so does  heart of woman.  7-9 p.m  Saturday 2-4 p  " 886-2130  m.
