 t/e}  The Sunshine  Published at Gibsons, B.C.  15C per copy on newsstands  Serving the Sunshine Coast since 1945  October 10.1978  Volume 31. Number 41  At Gibsons Council  Petition on Brothers Park  By George Cooper  To bring Brothers Park ballFields up to a satisfactory standard  was lhc petition presented lo Council at their October 2 meeting  by thc Gibsons Men's Softball League. Spokesman Freeman  Reynolds pointed out that there is a need for grading and  seeding to make the fields fit for play. "Who looks after Village parks?" Reynolds usked, and Alderman Goddard, chairing Council in Blain's absence, replied lhal that was her committee. "1 am not unaware of the condition of Brothers Park,  and there will be money budgeted for 1179 bul al this time I  don't know how much." She continued, "We use Ihe Village  work crew but Parks work is low on the job priority list. Most of  the crew's time is taken with road repair, sewer and water, and  emergency calls." Alderman Goddard added thai there was a  letter with a similar request from Shirley Maeey regarding the  kids' field at Brothers Park. Reynolds asked if thc Regional  District would assist since *fieir residents use the park. "They  can't since it is not in their 'urisdiction," said Alderman Goddard. "Defeat the recreation referendum this November."  interjected Hume, "and get into specified areas funding."  Reynolds asked if a meeting of representatives of thc many-  groups that use the purk could bc called to organize work projects. "This will be arranged," said Alderman Goddard.  In view of the history of the development of Brothers Park  and Ihe many donations of time and of money from community-  groups and individuals that have seen the present fields  wrenched out of the overgrown swamp, it would be a pity if  this kind of community effort wbre not encouraged and perhaps'  even frustrated by the lack of leadership on the part of the  Village, and all previous work lost to encroaching alder growth  and plugged drains. A 1967 centennial project to build ball  fields begun by the Kiwanis whose members picked stones and  roots and seeded grass was carried on by the recreation commission which re-graded the surfaces and installed the beginnings of a drainage system. Since the Village took over from the  park trustees, the drainage system has been completed with  monies from the Lions Club, private individuals, and Village  funds. But right now topsoil and seeding arc urgently required  for a good playing surface and to repel the alder growth. Originally a memorial to two members of the Jackson family, the  present park is also a reminder of a community accomplishment  in working to a definite objective. Community effort could carry  . on ��� it doesn't die that easily, surely.  In a brief letter to Council  thc Retarded Children's Association   informed   Council  that they would forego plans  to lease land offered  them  earlier this fall. Alderman  Hume,    Gibsons     Planning  Chairman, expressed disappointment in the Association's  withdrawal from the plan after  thc considerable time Council  spent in preparing it. Spokesman for thc Association stated  they were surprised to learn  that any building they constructed would become nominally  Ihe   property   of  thc  Village. When told that thc  Curling Club was functioning to its satisfaction under a  similar    arrangement    with  thc Village,  the  spokesman  stated that they might investigate the matter further  but that in thc meantime they  were    looking    for    rented  accommodations. One of the  spokesmen     informed     this  paper that the report in thc  September 19 issue, of their  having   accepted    Council's  offer of a lease near Harmony  Hall,  is  incorrect.   At   that  time   the    Association    had  received but not accepted thc  offer.  Is the dogcatcher coaxing  canines into his van outside  his geographic jurisdiction?  A letter-to-thc-Editor writer,  Inga M.Fenwick, asked this  question   in  thc  October  2  issue of thc newspaper und  went   on    to    imagine    lhc  resulting confusion if he hud  done  so  to  a  Port   Mellon  dog. That same evening the  Village Clerk, in his administration report, stated that the  dogcatcher's   trip   to   Port  Mellon    on   September   27  was for an authorized purpose.    The    report    states  "Mr. Elson was  acting  on  behalf of the (Village) administration to deliver a very  important written notification  to  thc   Port   Mellon     Pulp  Mill for transmission via their  in-housc telex. The reason for  choosing Mr. Elson to handle  the delivery was simply the  fact  that  he was the  only  municipal employee able to  leave ut thc time.  While in the Port Mellon  area he noticed a dog that  he  had  previously   adopted  out and  made an effort  to  motel at the urging of my  family who think I ought to  retire." She added that  she felt thc only way to  develop the present motel  site was to construct the  two-storey structure. "And  as far as building a public-  sidewalk and putting in two  hydrants at my expense ���  why that's thc Village's  responsibility, not mine.  1 would have fought Chairman Hume tooth-and-nail  on that one." And the Chairman's lot is not a happy one.  Other    items    from    the  call it in un attempt to satisfy  himself that the animal was  healthy and well cared for.  There was no attempt to  entice thc animal into thc  van."  "Al no time," thc report  continued, "has an animal  been picked up outside the  Village boundaries, und on  two occasions dogs that  wandered into the Village  from otusidc have been taken  back to their homes." A  policeman's or u dogcatcher's,  lot is not a happy one.

Residents dissatisfied  Pender School fire protection  By Pender Harbour & District  Ratepayers Association  Publicity Committee  Last week's press coverage  of the water supply issue at  the Pender Harbour Secondary School appeared to miss  the main point.  The whole question of water  for the school is grounded in  the concern of many taxpayers in thc Pender Harbour  ara over thc fact that the  secondary school never has  had and still docs not have a  water supply adequate for  fire protection.  It was for this reason  alone ��� to provide fire  irotection ��� that thc Region  al District was originally  asked to come to thc aid of  the School Board in resolving  the matter.  This point lias apparently  been lost on those authorities  who are now considering a  pump-fed system based on  Anderson Creek, because  such a system would not  provide fire protection. The  Area 'A' A.P.C. has been  supporting the alternate  plan for a system based on  Kleindale Creek is that this  system would provide fire  protection, lt is that simple.  Klcindalc Creek has three  basic advantages over Anderson Creek:  1,   Il   is   closer   to   the  school than Anderson Creek.  2. It is higher than Anderson Creek. A water system  based in Kleindale Creek  would have natural pressure  whereas one based in Anderson Creek would require  pumps.  3, Il lends itself to damming and ground storage,  which is the key.  The report presented to the  Regional Board las! month  by Howard White on behalf  of the Area 'A' A.P.C. was  based on an on-site inspection  by members of the South  Pender Water Board, a contractor experienced in water  system construction and a  retired   school   maintenance  Len Wray and Mrs. Lang's grade two class of Sechelt Elementary are pic-  , tured with the dog Missie, who's story was featured in the Coast News  lately.- Krista May is the little girl who brought the press clipping to her  classroom.

Some questions in Sechelt  Liquor applications  At last week's Council  meeting in Sechelt, Alderman  Joyce Kolibas objected to thc  handling of two recent liquor  applications in thc Village.

Throughout his time al  the Port Mellon mill, hc was  an active and dedicated Trade  Unionist. Some years ago hc  was active in a prolonged fight  at the mill against hiring discrimination which at that time  made it impossible for Indian  people to gain permanent employment in thc mill.  More recently, Frank Ayres  had been active in a campaign  to ensure that cans of paints  and chemicals should bc adequately labelled. In thc last  ten years four men who  worked in thc paint shop arc  reported to have died of can- "This donation  has  been  cer in various forms.

The facts reported were,  not blind guesses but were  based on measurements  taken at the site and on up-to-  date estimates from suppliers  and from the Regional Board's  own waterworks department, It was clearly stated  to the Board thai the report  was not a professional one  and had been prepared only  because no professional study-  had been done. It may he  noted that Alternate Director  Jim Mctzler, a former secretary-treasurer of thc School  Board and thc only member of  the Regional Board thoroughly familiar with the school  water problem apart from  Joe Harrison, agreed with the  A.P.C. report.  The Board was also told  at the time the report was  presented that if a professional study were done and  believable reasons were  found why Anderson Creek,  which is farther away and  lower, were a better site  than Klcindalc Creek, thc  A.P.C. would probably bc  satisfied.  This has not been done.  What was done instead was  thc admittedly non-professional A.P.C. report sent to  thc Regional Board's consulting engineers, Dayton  and Knight, who were asked  to criticize it from the splendid isolation of their Vancouver offices. They complied  with their client in this request  and said, in effect, that the  building of a dammed reservoir on Klcindalc Creek mayor may not be possible at the  cost estimated, which is all  they could say. having never  actually seen It. Had thev  inspected it they would have  seen that a reservoir site  already exists and can be  easily enlarged. In fact a  local contractor has recently '  made a firm offer to construt:  Ihe reservoir at thc cost suggested in the A.P.C. report.  Storage is the main clc:  ment required for lire pro:  lection, since the fire truck  can provide the additional  pressure required.  When contacted by Joe  Harrison, Dayton it Knight  emphasized thc fact that all  they had been asked to do  was criticize the A.P.C.  report and their criticism in  no way constituted a study of  the Klcindalc Creek system or  of the overall problem of  providing water to thc school.  Harrison asked thc Regional  Board to authorize sueh an  overall study bul was unable  to get the Board's support,  and that is where the matter  stands.  The School District is  reported to be considering a  system based on a well  beside Anderson Creek but  this appears lo be not substantially different from tho  system (he school now has.  based on n well beside Kleindale Creek, except lhal it  would dispose ot another  30,000 ol lhc taxpayers'  dollars.

Vindication and the environment  The case of the vanishing spruce  budworm has been hailed as a victory for  environmentalists. They have, according  to the news reports, been vindicated.  You remember the story. Nol too long ago  Ihe spruce budworm was seen lo be on  the verge of destroying the B.C. spruce  forests. The answer was. as is so often  the case, to begin immediate and deadly-  treatment of the budworm by whatever  toxic chemical was deemed suitable. The  Minister of Forests, the Hon. T.M.  Waterland. was emphatic in his demands  that B.C. forests bc protected from the  deadly budworm by thc application of  poisonous chemicals. There was a furor,  wih environmentalists claiming that thc  damage done to other denizens of the  forest would be extreme and absolutely  unnecessary. The spruce budworm infestation was a normal and recurring  phenomenon and would come to a normal  end.  For once the voice of moderation in  thc matter of chemical utilization was  heard in the land. The provincial cabinet  overruled the Minister of Forests,  chemicals were not applied, and now  wc learn that the spruce budworm crisis  has come to the natural end thc environmentalists had predicted for it.  Wc are, of course, pleased that the  environmentalists have been vindicated  but it would seem that the guin is not  theirs alone. And incidentally we would  cast a sideways glance at the use of the  word 'environmentalist' as it appears in  the popular press. It is beginning, des  pite this recent vindication, to be used in  the same way as 'peacenik' was in the  Sixties. Anyone who thought that the  war in Vietnam was brutal, unnecessary,  totally unjustified, and should bc stopped  was subtly painted as some kind of  irrational kook, peacenik. A sad comment  on our society when those clamouring  for peace should have a name coined and  in common usage which implied if not  contempt then certainly a total lack of  respect. Now it would seem that 'environmentalist' is being so used.  But the vindication of thc views that  massive and irrational application of  poisonous chemicals is a practice that is  all too frequently engaged in in our  society without forethought is a victory  not of a kooky fringe clement alone, but  for all thinking members of society. The  proliferation both in type and in use of  poisonous chemicals is something which  should be of concern to every one of us.  That the proponents of massive chemical  use as an answer to problems which  arise naturally in the environment have  been shown so dramatically and conclusively to be absolutely wrong in this  instance makes it, to say the very least,  entirely credible that some of thc usages  presently underway are equally misguided.  Those who seek a more responsible  attitude towards the environment, our  fellow residents of this troubled planet,  and the future can take heart from thc  case of the spruce budworm. A taste of  success sweetens a long struggle.  Ponder School water supply  It is difficult to defend the actions of  the Regional Board in withdrawing from  thc responsibility of supplying water  for the Pender Harbour Secondary-  School in an adequate amount to make  fire protection possible. That such protection is needed surely needs no arguing  in this area where two expensive education plants have burned down in thc last  five years.  In the past this newspaper has been a  supporter of the Regional Board concept  on the grounds that it is easier for a locally based government to be responsive  to Ihe people it represents. In this  ease it would seem to be a false argu-  ment.  Over a year ago a responsible group of  Pender Harbour citizens put forth in  this newspaper a thoughtful and measured case for using Klcindalc Creek  next to the school as a source of fire protection for thc schoool. This year  the  presentation   in   favour   of   Kleindale  Creek was made at the Regionnl Board.  It is the conviction here that thc suggestion was a responsible one and made  by people who both knew the terrain  and what they were talking about. Now  the Regional Board plays Pontius Pilate  and leaves the decision to the School  Board. The case for the Kleindale Creek  is made again persuasively by the Pender Harbour Ratepayers Association  again in this paper this week and it is  to be hoped that it will be given thc  thoughtful consideration it deserves.  There is little point in duplicating their  argument here. It suffices to say that if  local people with local knowledge arc  going to be ignored by local government  as they so frequently are by senior  levels of government, then the argument  in favour of loeal responsibility is seriously diminished.  from the files of Coast News  5 YEARS AGO  Ron Cruice of Coast News staff  took third place in a new photography  competition with his pictures of the  fire which destroyed Elphinstone  Secondary School.

Photo  courtesy Elphinstone Pioneer Museum. L.R.Peterson  I've enjoyed some nice  restorative moments about  Canada in the past week and  they have all come courtesy  of the C.B.C. Radio.  I've been a fan of C.B.C.  Radio in particular since I  spent three years in the Yukon  without television or radio  alternative. I had, of course,  been a radio listener of passionate intensity as a child  in Scotland, but when I moved  to Canada I suppose listening to thc radio got lost  in thc welter of new things to  do und sec and thc Montreal  years went by with myself  largely unawure of the C.B.C.  and its heroic attempt to be a  bit of something for everyone  in this disperate and far-  flung land.  I discovered thc C.B.C.  Radio Service, as I have  said while in the Yukon. I  becumc, us was my way in  those days, a tireless and  enthusiastic booster for the  C.B.C. I was not long in discovering that everyone was  not of my persuasion.  I think my first head-on  collision was with a rather  wimpish Nova Scotian vice-  principal that I was working  with. Of course, his was a  social awareness that had  advanced scarcely at all  from Ihe days of thc cave  man. Left to his own devices  he would have been barking  somewhat ineffectual, cr-  ritorial imperatives from a  shallow cave. He was a member of that Band of Hope  and Glory, Ihat religious  train whose undiminished  fervour may yet si utl us  careening oil' whatever rails  there are, the Free Enterprisers,  According to this delight-  ful gentleman, everything  even remotely concerned  with the government should  be closed down and the country would bc the belter for  it. It's an argument that 1  have heard from time to time  since. In any case hc ended  up leaving the school system  where hc was required to  work and spends his time  nowadays and in the dozen  years between Hying somewhat furtively around the  North West selling stock in  worthless mines to the  unwary. I suppose it is enterprising, and certainly it is  to his benefit lo have as  little overseeing of his activities as possible, so I suppose  wc can say that he is true to  his philosophy.  Now 1 will admit to getting  as mad at the government  as anyone in the country, maybe madder than many for I  refuse to believe ihat govern-  Musings  John Burnside  Slings & Arrows  George Matthews  ments are by some power preordained to bc venal, corrupt,  spineless and stupid. I believe  that good government is  possible and that wc had  better discover thc secret of  it remarkably quickly or wc  might find ourselves with a  government that will rip out  tongues for saying bad things  about it.  Since I first defended the  C.B.C. ��� the fellow mentioned above would have  closed it down completely  and immediately and turned  us over to the mercy of  commercial radio with its  hysterical disc jockeys and its  machine gun spray of commercial messages ��� I have  become much more critical  of what is done with thc dollars I pay in tax. I have been  as critical of the governments to decide what to do  with my money as anyone in  Canada; 1 have been as resentful of both bureaucratic arrogance and waste; driven again  and again to thc gibbering  brink of anarchy and revolution as thc result of thc actions  of one government or another.  But I have no illusions about  being able to live my life  without government. And I  have never begrudged a  dollar of mine that went to  thc C.B.C.  Before I wander down any  more false trails on this  occasion, let me wrest myself back to my starling  point and briefly outline what  particular incidents have  floated through my consciousness in the past week which  would bring mc lo my initial  comments ubout Canada and  the C.B.C. I suppose the first  was Morningside, the Don  Harron show in the morning.  One day last week I had the  leisure to listen and while  Harron has frequently been  irritating with a penchant  for bad jokes al worst times  when I have heard him before,  Ihis was a morning of marvellous radio. Some truly marvellous interviews sent the old  gray cells reeling and dancing  in thc Cerebrum Jig.  Harron himself, as well  as being the voice of Morning-  side, is also thc man behind  Charlie Farquharson who,  if he is not, deserves to be a  Canadian folk hero. In addition to these activities Harron  is an absolutely first-rate  actor. 1 had the opportunity  about twenty years ago of  seeing him piay Jimmy Porter  in Look Back in Anger just  a few months after I saw thc  original in the role, Kenneth  Haigh, play the part in New  York and thc little-known  Canadian actor was in no way  way inferior to thc star of  the West End and Broadway stages.  One of his guests on the  morning to which 1 allude  was Claude Jutras. French-  Canadian film maker of sueh  films as Mon Oncle Antoinc  and Kamouraska, which wc  have been able to sec here  thanks to the Kwahtahmoss  Film Society. Jutras has  recently returned to the  stage because, he says, the  financial pressure on film  makers is too intense and the  compromises demanded are  too great.  The reason for thc interview- was that a group of  English-speuking uctors from  Toronto hud gone to Montreal und put on a show in  French there called The  Maudlt Anglais (Thc Lousy-  English) and Jutras with a  group of theatre students  was reciprocating by playing  in Toronto. Now that's bi-  culturalism much more truly  than bureaucrats learning  French.  And secondly, all week  there have been the excerpts  broadcast from the C.R.T.C.  hearings through which thc  C.B.C. would have its licence  renewed. I have been impressed by the C.B.C. president Al Johnson and I have  been impressed by thc exchanges between thc C.B.C.  president and the C.R.T.C  commissioners Gagnon and  Hcbcrl in particular. It is us  though the great Canadian  debate was finally taking  form. Johnson's passionate  Cunadianlsm opposed, for  example, by Hcbcrl's equally  passionate skepticism. It's  great stuff.  Incidentally, Johnson  points out tiial the 500 million dollars for the C.B.C.  amounts to about six cents  per day for every Canadian,  i say il is one area of government spending that is well  worth while. After all we're  planning to spend four times  as much for tighter planes  we will never use.  An upcoming federal  election! Boring stuff. Thc  fundamental question which  uriscs in the long-anticipated  struggle ��� what is the character of the average elector? ��� has already been  answered. Wc, in fact, know  the result of the election.  Thc Liberals will get soundly  trounced; the Conservatives  will have their usual five year  kick at the cat.  The unfortunate thing  about the election result is  not thc Liberal loss but what  thc Liberal Government has  done to give liberalism a  bad name. Canadians arc a  noble, benevolent und toler-  unt people given to circumspection und tranquility in  their social and political  beliefs. We are, in short, a  liberal people. After ten years  of Liberal Party rule Canadians have become petty,  niggardly, truculent und  malignant; in short, conservative.  The traditional liberalism of  Canadians has been characterized by a faith in democratic institutions, an acceptance of immigrants, and a  respect for individual differences. Good, old-fnshoned  liberal values contain a basic  faith in human nature. Liberals believe thai most people  are good most of the time.  They do not believe in original  sin. They believe in progress.  Old-fashioned liberals do  not believe that society needs  rules and laws for every social  interaction. They believe  that everyone has a right to  go to hell any way they  choose, as long as thev don'i  take somebody with them.  Liberals believe in free  trade; in the natural selective process of the market  place. They distrust hereditary wealth and power. They  hate prejudice and bigotry.  They prefer equal opportunity  in employment. A good, old  fashioned liberal, if you could  ever find one, believes in  humanism as opposed to  science in social affairs, in  business management und in  political life.  The Liberal Party of Canada  has broken every fundamental  tenet of liberalism, and has  done so with such arrogant  cynicism, that most Canadian  liberals have locked themselves in the closet in shame  and disgust. One of the  worst things you can do these  days is to admit you arc a  liberal. The term has even  become one of derision:  "You're nothing but a goddamn liberal!" or "Keep  your maudlin liberal sentiments to yourself," have become acceptable epithets in  social and political circles.  It's ironic how thc old  liberal vulues have become a  part of Conservative Part.'  philosophy. The election  issues will centre around  the Conservative Party's  support of small business  over big corporations, a distrust of big government and  a simplifying of the legal  structure. All of these liberal  values will become planks in  the Conservative Party platform.  And so to thc election.  Perhaps I was hasty in suggesting the demise of liberalism. Liberalism is in fact  alive and well and living in  the Progressive Conservative  Party. It's funny what a name  can do. Call a political party-  Liberal and it will do its level  best to rid itself of every  manifestation of liberalism;  call it Conservative and liberal  it becomes.  , Thc other major political  parly in Canada, the N.D.P.,  will poll its traditional twenty  .percent. It too docs not  contain Ihe requisite amount  of liberal sentiment. Planned  economies, controlled development, laws passed to make  people be nicer to one  another; not for us I'm afraid.  The Conservative Party will  win the election, will attempt  to run Canada for five years,  will stumble from lack of  tact, direction and experience  and bc thrown unceremoniously out of office in (approp-  Please turn to page three  Locker Room  by Carolyn Zonailo  after swimming  giggles  with weight  1 watch  and pubescent  of children  the naked bodies  modesty  before seeing  of these other women  afraid  my own reflection  their skin  of our blossoming  white and inviting  breasts  still shy  as fog  we huddled  1 stand  their soft forests  under sweatshirts  in the shower  mysterious  beside  as undergrowth  it has taken  a black woman  all these years  her wet  1 never knew  the/ocular freedom  to grow  into a body  muscular thighs  are a language  we both  of men's locker rooms  all that pain  our sports  ol feeling  have learned  shrouded in  ballooned and foreign  to speak  ��Maai Letters to the Editor  Acquisition off Soames Perk questioned  Coast News, October 10,1978  Editor;  I am writing in regard to  the proposed purchase of  4.3 acres of property at  Soames Point for the purpose  of establishing a park or green  belt area. The whole cost,  $216,000, of the purchase of  this land is to be borne by  Area *F\ and this money is  to be borrowed. I have read  or heard nothing about the  maintenance, but anyone who  is familiar with the land must  know that a great deal of  maintenance will be required.  It is very marshy and boggy,  overgrown with thick blackberry vines and needs continual mowing and clipping. Wc  have already had a so-called  green belt or park made out  of Soames Hill, and it is not  being properly maintained.  It could become quite danger  ous as the damp rots the slippery steps and railings.  Soames Beach is open to  everyone and is very much  used in summer. There is no  need to go into debt and  increase our taxes to buy this  land, then increase them still  more to maintain an attractive well-kept park. A caretaker would really be required. Anyone who thinks  acquiring and maintaining  this land would affect their  taxes very little is fooling  himself, and is quite likely  to regret it. Wc will have a  large debt just to buy it, and  I doubt if it will bc used much.  Ccrtninly not, unless it is  properly looked ufter, and thc  cost will be high.  There are other undesirable  elements involved such as  parking    arcu,    noise    und  possible vandalism. 1 sincerely  hope the people in Area  'F' will seriously consider  these things before they vote  on this project. jean Robinson,  Gibsons, B.C.  WE'RE RIGHT FOR YOU  More letters on page eight  Shock and anger  More Soames criticism  Editor:  Well! Well! Whaddya  know? Bernie sweet talked the  Sunshine Coast Regional  Board into holding a ref;  crendum on the purchase of  thc last of the Soames property for 'Green Belt' purposes!! That four and a third  acres going for $200,000  plus costs, plus interested for  twenty years ��� say- roughly, $450,000. Wow!! That's  more than a hundred grand  an ucrc. Good business?  Sure ��� for thc lenders. That  is if thc landowners arc big  enough suckers to vote 'Yes'  on such an unbusinesslike  proposition.  This water-logged strip  between the water and thc  highway, flanked by Soames  and Trant Roads is lovely-  property to look at but for  developing in any way, the  costs would lower thc actual  value. It might be worth  $125,000 but even that is  stretching it a bit.  Let's face it, Ihe owner  tried to sell it through a larger  realty firm for $194,000.  So, trying some good old  fashioned merchandising  practices, she upped the price  lo $230,000 and charged the  really firm who erected new  signs. Still no go. That did  it ��� for Bernic. Would she  tukc two hundred grand if  the Regional Board would  go along? Of course she  would, who wouldn't when thc  price would be almost double  the actual value?  So let's all go out and vote  'Yes' and pay thousands of  bucks over the next twenty-  years for something that will  never make it as a park.  J.F.Harris.  Granthams Landing. B.C.  And still more  Editor:  May I make a few comments re the* Referendum  for October 21 which affects  all Area 'F' property owners.  First, I urge all eligible  voters to vote. How you vote is  your privilege. But keep in  mind, the sum of $216,000  has to be borrowed. And the  strange thing about borrowing is that the principal  plus interest have to be paid  back. By whom? The Area  'F' property owners, I believe.  A small group (The Soames  Point Green Belt Committee)  has made much of the fact that  if a private party bought and  developed this 4.3 acres, we  would lose our access to  Soames Beach, There is a  public road to the beach with  residences facing on it. Surely this assures our continued  access.  A third comment is ��� why  are Area 'F' taxpayers expected to play fairy godmother  to the owner of Soames Field?  This person has done nothing  to keep up or improve the  property. It has been for sale  over a long period. No buyers!  Is the price too high?  Through Area 'F"s Regional representative we were  assured that if Soames Field  was purchased no Park would  be developed. The area would  bc kept as a Green Belt. Now-  according to the Referendum  (Coast News, October 3, 1978)  wc are to vote on Soames  Park. Also we were led to  believe that before the Referendum would be called,  a general meeting would be  held. But the Referendum  is publicized first and two  days alter a notice of meeting  on October 13 is posted. Who  can one believe these days?

I was on  my days-off and drinking with  ;i couple of cronies who shared  the same shift-schedule.  After a good many bottles of  McEwan's Ale, it was mutually decided that we should  make a run up to Terrace  where the nightlife was a  hit livelier. One of my friends  owned a battered Volkswagen  and wc set out in this. The  Terrace highway is quite flat  for most of its length but the  surface in spots was treacherous with glare-ice. We were  Pages from a Life-Log  Peter Trower  tooling heedlessly along the  banks of the Kitimat River  when the driver hit a particularly slippery patch and lost  control.

After the usual  mandatory pub-crawl, we  were heading lor a party up  Oak Slreel with two girls on  Ihe shady side of twenty-one  and a considerable quantity  of wine.

As usual, it was  triggered by alcohol, a rather  inordinate amount in this  particular case. I was drinking  with two Icelandic brothers.  Frank and Carl by name. 1  think we were celebrating  someone's birthday, Late  Sunday morning, we departed  a powered-out party that  seemed In have been going  on forever and headed for  home in Frank's car. We  should have taken a cab but  Frank insisted he was sober  enough to drive. Carl climbed  in thc back-scat and almost-  immcdiatcly passed-out. It  had been a long session  and I wasn't long in following sail. No problem so far  but then Frank fell asleep at  the wheel. The driverlcss  car somehow jumped the  ditch and bounced along the  grassy fringe on Ihe upper  side of the road for several  hundred yards, knocking over  mail-boxes like bowling-  pins. By the time we lurched  to a halt, all of us jolted awake  by the wild ride, irate homeowners were emerging from  driveways, shouting and  shaking their lists.

These minor incidents are  by way of leading up to the  truly horrific car-accident of  my life. It took place on thc  Port Mellon highway about a  year after the business of  the mail-boxes. The winding  road bad not been open long  and was still raw and  unsettled. I was cutting  shakes on my mother's property al the time and had  hitched a ride to Gibsons to  buy a power-saw chain.

General Noles: Mars moving  close to Uranus with the Full  Moon opposing Pluto indicates a very eventful week.  We must all be prepared for  sudden upsets, rash behaviour and surprising  incidents. Advice is to stay-  calm amidst unexpected  disruptions. News headlines  may focus on crimes of  passion, underground  explosions and even more  aviation accidents.  Babies born this week will  be impulsive and very  independent. Their future  temper tantrums will need  much patience and understanding. Solution will he to  offer them early responsibilities for which they have  complete control.  Those horn around February .1.

Marriages and  partnerships face final tests  this weekend.  TAURUS (April 20-May 20)  ll's time to exercise much  sell control to prevent arguments and dust-ups with  everyday associates. Others  arc impossible lo deal with  now and should be left alone  to stew in their own frustrations. The week ends with  health or employment hassles.  GEMINI (May 21-June 21)  Where you do your daily  chores is scene of irritating  outbursts. Co-workers may  refuse lo listen and walk  away. Those operating electrical or mechanical equipment should exercise required  precautions. If you can swing  il. stay off the job for awhile.  Any health problems may be  linked lo over-exertion.  Weekend social life brings  change of plans.  CANCER (June 22-July 22)  ��� Surprising incidents may  shock you at social gatherings or places of entertainment and amusement.

LIBRA (Sepl. 23-Ocl. 23)  Focus is on upsetting  financial conditions. Rash,  impulsive acquisition of  unnecessary items may find  you weeping over your upcoming bank statements.  Delay purchase of electrical appliances or gadgets  till later. Meanwhile, guard all  possessions and cheek all  locks. Loved ones insist on  complete control of weekend  activities.  SCORPIO (Oct. 24.Nov.22)  Mars and Uranus together  in your sign indicate rebellion, urging you to assert  your freedom and Independence. You tend lo act rashly or impulsively now and  may later regret harsh words  or daring promises. Depending on your actions, popularity could hit a temporary  low. Those using mechanical  or electrical equipment should  protect the head and face.  November 7 birthdays must  control their tempers.  SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-  Dec. 21)  Bottled-up frustrations and  worries may urge you to  escape from confining situations. However, action time is  November so conserve energy  and revise plans till then.  Advice now is lo let thc tears  How ami count your blessings.  New. two-year cycle begins  soon so maintain faith.  Meanwhile, weekend social  activities bring mysterious  strangers.  CAPRICORN (Dec.22-Jan.19)  Acquaintances' display of  disruptive behaviour may  leave you flabbergasted  and contemplating the price  ol friendship. Strangers  overstaying their welcome  should be politely shown the  door. Right now is a favourable time for starting innovative or original projects. Group  activities may be thc source  of prescnl irritability. Fresh  starts are indicated on thc  domestic scene.  AQUARIUS (Jan.20-Fcb. 18)  Your local reputation is  now on the line. Attacks from  all quarters should bc parried  with common sense rather  than emotional excuses. It ��  no time to boost your position, apply for promotions or  grovel for ihat pay increase.  Authority figures are feeling  cantankerous and have  little sympathy for your ambitions to succeed. Advancement will be easier soon so  have patience.  PISCES (I eb.ll-Mar.2(1)  Those nursing a new-  philosophy or fresh approach  to everyday living must now  expect a true testing of their  beliefs. Danger now is bashing others over the head with  your recently found universal solutions. Remember it  is best to be thought a fool  than to open your mouth and  prove it! Meanwhile, financial  news from far away places  should bring you swiftly  down to earth.  Pender  Clinic films  The Human Collision was  shown September 20.

Book Review  Bill Bisset's Blues  By John Moore  No review this week; I'm  going to take a little space  to comment on the country's  current literary controversy.  I mean, of course, the Canada  Council Kerfuffel, also known  as Bill Bissett's Blues. The  battle has been going on for  some time back East and on  the floor of the House of  Commons. Bissett's contribution to the uproar consists  of his reading, on C.B.C.  Radio, of his poem "A Warm  Place to Shit", which consists of that phrase repeated  thirty-nine times and accompanied by appropriate sound  effects. The resulting bellow  of public outrage has been  heard on open-line radio  shows and found more articulate expression in thc columns of Vancouver Sun contributor, Doug Collins. Mr.  Collins has made quite a  name for himself lately by  way of his criticism of Canadian Immigration policy and,  while he may tell it the way  a lot of people think it is,  reading his column often  gives mc thc same sensation  of intestinal unease that I  feci when I see someone  pouring a can of kerosene on  acampfire.  Mr. Collins doesn't like  Bissett's poetry. Neither, I  confess, do I. I have a certain  admiration for thc enthusiasm  of his readings, but a reading  of one of his books, particularly thc line "published with  the assistance of the Canada  Council", after a long shift  behind thc bar or the wheel  of a eab to pay the rent on a  place to write poetry that after  ten years I'm still not sure is  good enough to publish, is  apt to drive me into thc  midnight streets frothing at  thc mind and howling injustice at the moon. Injustice  is the word we shout when  we mean sour grapes, I know.  All this is beside the point;  even Mr. Collins grudgingly  grants Bissett his right to  write what he pleases. Personally I find "A Warm Place  to Shit" less offensive than a  T.V. commercial featuring a  young woman singing about  panty shields, but Collins  treats the Bissett affair  ostensibly as a matter of  money, not a matter of  taste. It is not Bissett's  poetry he objects to so much  as the fact that he and every  other taxpayer have apparently contributed to the writing  and publishing of it to the tune  of something like $28,000.  A pretty penny to pay for a  panegyric in praise of preheated privies, you might  say, and so it seems. But the  monetary issue is a red flag  Collins is waving at thc  bullish and irate taxpayers,  who are understandably on  the lookout for something to  gore these days, and poets  and publishers lack thc protective bureaucratic padding  enjoyed by politicians. Canada  Council grants are, for the  most part, "subsistence"  grants given to artists whose  time, it has been judged,  would be better spent perfecting and exercising their  craft rather than working in a  carwash,    selling    encyclo  pedias, or teaching literature  to captive highschool students. Whatever Bisset does  with what he's got left after  paying the rent on his "warm  place", I can tell you he's  not out pricing radials for his  new Ferrari. The balance of  that impressively quoted  figure probably went to support publishers like Talon  Books, who, as Bissett's  publishers, are taking some  flack, and who publish many  other West Coast poets and  playwrights. If Talon suffers  as a result of their connection  with Bissett. it will be a  serious blow to Canadian literature as a whole. The argument that taxpayers and  MPs rather than a committee of educated specialists  should decide how arts grants  arc awarded is as specious  as that old chestnut used by  speeding motorists, caught  red-handed, to irritate policemen: "I'm a taxpayer! I  pay your salary, that makes  mc your boss!" Try that the  next time you run a radar  trap and you'll gct exactly  what you deserve. There is  very little point in training  and educating people to  expertness in any field, at a  cost to the taxpayer that  makes thc Canada Council  look like a neglected charity,  if you place the right to veto  their decisions in the hands  of the ignorant and inexpert.  As for the argument that  poetry ought to pay for itself, if it's worth paying for,  it's another version of the  "Government should be run  like a business" song and  dance. It's true that if we'd  listened to that argument  fifty years ago we would  not face many of the problems  wc face today; those problems wouldn't exist because  we'd still be living in the  Great Depression. Poetry  has never "paid for itself" ���  it has survived on patronage  since the "Sons of Homer"  hitch-hiked around ancient  Greece, reciting the national  epics in return for bed and  board at the courts of petty  kings and chieftains. Poets  throughout the ages have  always sung for their supper  at tables not of their choosing.  The institution of patronage, traditionally the province  of a cultivated aristocracy,  has waned considerably with  the rise of free enterprise  and democracy. That the  government should assume  thc role of patron, with no  ideological strings attached,  is evidence of an enlightened  administration and an intelligent populace. Canadians  incidentally arc among thc  greatest per capita consumers  of poetry and one of the most  literature-conscious nations  in the world today. Obviously  the system is open to abuses.  If you spend more time  toadying and hustling grants  than you do writing poetry,  odds are you'll get the grants  and publish junk. Any system  dependent on bureaucracy  and committee is inevitably  subject to nepotism, mutual  sponsorship, and other various forms of influence-peddling. It's healthy that every  so often such complacent  cabals get a swift kick in their  butts, but they're a fact of  life. (If mold grows on it, at  least you know it's edible.)  Behind Doug Collins'  concern for the taxpayer lies  the worst kind of reactionary  reverse-snobbery. By appealing to the lower common  denominator in us all, he  insults the intelligence of the  people for whom he claims to  speak. A thing is not wrong,  evil, meaningless, or valueless just because we don't  understand it or it isn't to our  taste. A country so painfully  conscious of its need for unity  and an identity cannot afford  a witch-hunt  As for Bill Bissett, if he  writes a book of poems 1  think are worth reading,  you'll see it reviewed in this  space, because 1 believe the  function of criticism is to  help good books gct the attention they merit. Flaying bad  books is fun; you gct to use all  kinds of juicy adjectives,  display your rapier wit and  flair for satire, but it's ultimately a waste of ink, newsprint, and everybody's time.  Garbage only floats to the top  for a little while; then it sinks  into the oblivion it deserves.

What the money is for.  Over a period of five years,  MacMillan Bloedel is spending  more than $450 million on up-  to-the-minute production facilities. So far this year, for example,  we've committed more than $130  million for projects in British  Columbia. This is a planned,  deliberate investment: a matter  of decision. It's additional to our  continuing expenses for wages,  supplies and power���our everyday costs of staying in business.  Spending to stay  competitive.  Most of this investment will be  used to equip some of the best  people in the business (MB  people) with the best tools available. (One example: The new  $54 million Alberni Pacific Sawmill.) Why? To help them turn  out even better products at lower  costs. That's essential if we're  going to continue meeting world  competition.  Profit: An investment  in the future.  If you think MacMillan Bloedel  is investing this money in B.C.  because we hope to earn a fair  rate of return on it���you're entirely correct.  Profit is what keeps us here. It's  also what is expected of us by  our employees, shareholders,  bankers and bond holders. Without them, we wouldn't stay in  business long. Nor would any  other company.  So we intend to keep right on  making the best profit we can,  consistent with our responsibilities to our people and the communities we work in.   .  A vote of confidence.  Our company's willingness to  make large, long-term investments in this province tells you  something important about our  hopes for B.C.'s future.

Box 1208  885-2568  This is a frequently used term  for local merchants. Now 1  do not know beans about thc  price of coffee but one thing  that makes motorcycles look  so expensive is the millions of  magazines from down south  that advertise for hundreds  less. The reason of this  U.S.���Canadian difference in  price is thc tariffs. On an  Oriental bike valued at $1,500,  American tariffs are only  five percent, but the custom  man also reads magazines  and he first adds eleven  percent to this price for dollar inflation. This means he  adds twelve and-a-half  percent to $1,665 instead of  $1,500, then adds $205  if the bike - is over 250 cc.  Hc adds another five percent  $93.00. then the Feds rip off  twelve percent, $224, remember, you are no paying tax on  tax.  This brings the price to  $2,025. Before the distributor  can unload it from the boat,  since this price is still in  U.S.Funds, he adds eleven  percent for the poor Canadian  dollar; the distributor's cost  is now $2,247.75, while his  U.S. counterpart pays only  $1,575, or $672.75 more.  Hc now adds his twenty-five  percent mark up and the dealer mortgage's his home to  put one in the showroom.  What I do not know is  were this $672.75 goes, or'  why it is charged. Perhaps  when the government wants  us to re-elect them we should  ask them. Oh, almost forgot,  the government takes one last  rip; sales tax, five percent  now, seven percent after the  election.

Renegades vs Vancouver  United;  An off day for thc Renegades; thc only good thing  about his game was the winning score of 2 to 1 in favour  of the Renegades. Vancouver  United is a team that has not  won a single game yet in their  division. Compared to thc  Renegades last Saturday, they  looked good. The first goal  was scored five minutes into  the first half by Vancouver  United when the ball rebounded off the goalie and was  unexpectedly kicked in by a  right winger.  In the second hall', two  goals were scored for the  Renegades by Robert Joe,  the first one a penalty shot  and the second one from a  crossover by Lupie. The game  had to be one of thc worst  games played by thc Renegades so far. Let's hope they  recapture their old form soon  and give us a game worth  watching.

General Information:  Proposal: We have proposed  to have rep teams in the Peewee, Bantam, Midget and  possibly juvenile leagues  this year. These would consist of any players from our  association who would all be  of an approximate equal  calibre. These teams would  then participate as a 'team'  all year and play in thc higher  division, and compete at their  level against teams from the  lower mainland on an exhibition basis, with possibly some  tournaments involved.  Purpose: The executive feels  thc  level of competition  in  our association is at a stage  where it needs an injection  of   'something   new' this  has been proposed as one  alternative which hopefully  will work, and will offer better  competition for all ages  involved. Our house league  or average hockey player  will bc better off without  the so-called 'stars' who will  play in a higher division.  n.b.���We should stress it  is not our intention to offer  rep teams better ice times or  more ice time, but to continue  our philosophy of providing  an equal opportunity for all  players in our association.  This goes for ice times, practices, games (league and exhibition).  Selections: Anytime forty  boys attend a 'try-out' there  are many problems involved.  There will quite likely be  mistakes made in thc early  selections, but we will not  have to necessarily keep thc  team the same all year. Any  players not living up the expectations of the 'rep' coach  and our philosophy of play  will bc removed to a house  league team and replaced  by a player who has shown a  desire through his play in  house league. Also, changes  may occur occasionally due to  injury or just for exhibition  or tournament play (eg. where  a pw rep team would want  two goalies, a goalie from a  peewee house team might be  invited along as well as  another player).  Try-outs: The team will be  chosen by three individuals  familiar in team selections  of this sort. Previous years  scoring feats will not bc used  as a selection criterion, but  rather thc enthusiasm, desire  as well as ability as a 'team  player'.  A player with a good deal  of desire, enthusiasm and  good attitude would probably  bc selected over a player with  superior ability, but who  comes to practices late  smoking and who is difficult"  to coach.

In  this last case fourteen of the  whales were already high and  dry before the dolphins came  to thc rescue.  These rescues reminded  mc of a text book in elementary school which depicted  the life of PELORUS JACK.  Since a schoolboy's imagination is inclined a bit to  romanticize, I won't go into  my rendition of the story, so  here is an excerpt from  The People's Almanac.  "The Porpoise Pilot:  French Pass, a dangerous  water passage through thc  D'Urville Islands and off the  coast of New Zealand, extends from Pelorus Sound to  Tasman Bay. lt is a shortcut  for sailors, but a risky one,  with deceptive currents  and jagged underwater rocks.  Back on a stormy morning in  1871, thc schooner Brindle,  out of Boston, bound for  Sydney, approached the  passage. A blue-gray porpoise began jumping up in  front of the ship, as though  it were bidding it welcome.  Pottery  facility  Have you been wondering  what all the activity has been  in the old quonset hut at  North Road and Highway  101? Next week you'll have a  chance to see.  The hut has been converted  into a crafts studio by School  District 46 for the use of  Continuing Education classes,  and for the use of a group of  potters which has formed a  unique group on the coast,  The Sunshine Pottery Guild.  For their share, the Guild  is working to purchase equipment for the studio including  wheels, kilns, and supplies  for use of its members and  School District classes.  On Saturday, October 14,  the Sunshine Pottery Guild  will be holding a sale of its  wares and an open house,  including demonstrations of  all stages of pottery production, and free coffee and  snacks. All proceeds from the  sale will go toward purchase  of equipment for this joint  use facility.  Some of the sailors thought  it was a young whale calf and  wanted to kill it. The captain's wife talked them out  of it.  Thc porpoise seemed to  be leading the way through  the channel and the ship  followed it, through deep  water all the way, to arrive  safely on the other side.  From then on. the porpoise,  nicknamed Pelorus Jack,  would meet and pilot every  ship that came through,  every ship that is, but one.  In 1903, a drunken passenger  on thc Penguin hit Jack with a  bullet. Though thc crew wanted to lynch thc passenger,  the damage was done. Jack  didn't show up for two weeks,  but then came back, apparently none the worse for the  experience. However, after  that he would never accompany the Penguin again.  In 1909, the Penguin, long  considered a jinxed ship,  was wrecked in the passage,  with great loss of life.  In April,   1912, Jack vanished,    never   to   be   seen  again."  Odds V Ends:  I was talking with Wayne  and George, who arc mapping  out the old Indian sites  around here. They had been  out to White Island and had  seen seven sea lions. For  years I've wanted to get a  picture of them, when they  congregate at the Trail  Islands. Does anyone know  when this is?  There's a red tide at the  moment, so anyone eating  shellfish is taking a chance.  Noticed in Saturday's  Province that the budworm  epidemic is coming to an  end NATURALLY. "1 told  you so," was thc call of an  environmentalist, and rightly  so.  Fishing Gear:  Walking along the beach  a couple of days ago, I found a  seagull with a length of line  hanging out of its mouth.  When I got closer. 1 could  see that it was a piece of halibut snap gear. It must have  spotted a line, still with a  chunk of bait on it. As it was  only a young bird it probably  gobbled it down quickly.  Thc hook was far enough  down its throat to be out of  sight,    about  gangon was  its   mouth  w  the end of it.  it with a landi  Pat Forst bends over potter's wheel. See story  attached.

It could still fly.  lt wasn't very pleasant to  watch it skimming the water.  Coast News, October 10. 1978  every time the snap hit the  surface it would pull the gull's  head back.  Most of us can remember  creek fishing. tangling  our lines and having to throw  away fifty or sixty feet. I've  done it myself. 1 don't think  I'll do it again. It's a perfect  trap for birds and other  animals.  VLASSIFISB ADS  OPEN4-11     Tuesday to Sunday      Closed Mondays  SMORGASBORD    FRI. SAT.. SUN.

Ocobcr 5,  197H as a very special day in  thc annals of the S.C.R.  District.  On that evening a Management "in camera" meeting  was held to discuss salary  and other personnel matters,  and whilst the meeting was  quite properly "in camera"  thc end results are of course  public property of information  and concern.  The item is that the S.C.  R.D. executive staff volun-  tarilv and without prior board  consultation RED CIRCLED  their remuneration. i.e.  DECLINED a pay raise.  The rationale being that thc  massive oncosts for taxpayers  in 1979 were a sufficient  burden in their own right,  and this comparatively (in  thc overall picture) small  gesture was an indication of  their deep concern.  In my opinion this is a  fine example of restraint in  fiscal matters to which we may  all pay attention and strive  to emulate. It is a fine and  outstanding gesture indicative of the class of Civil  Servants we enjoy on the  coast.

The dog in  question had been in the  Pound in very poor condition  and had been adopted out  in this area. Being in Port  Mellon on other legitimate  business, the pound-keeper  decided to call over this way  to see how the dog was getting  on.  All I can do is to apologize  publicly for any unpleasantness or embarrassment 1  may have caused to thc  pound-keeper, who in fact  was doing nothing wrong.

I am sure she need not fret  that anyone will lose a pet  through Mr. Elson.  Hc has always been ready  to answer questions regarding  lost and stray dogs. Even  as kind enough to pick up a  poor little cat that lay for two  days alongside the road  (which is not his job. incidentally), when I called him. He  is the first to say when dogs  are out of his jurisdiction and  tell you hc can not do anything. Even if hc is called,  he mentions this. So if anyone's pet goes missing, look  to yourself and ask why  you weren't taking care of  it.  Thank   you,    Mr.    Elson.  for your good job well done!!  Mrs. F.Mullen,  Gibsons, B.C.

Council expressed thc  hope that developer Mr.  Len VanEgmond would cooperate and soon have a  crushed gravel surface  (in the road.        ',  On Friday of last week thc  road, though not finished,  was usable.  The land behind Mr. Hat  field's property on Ebb Tide  owned by Glenniont Holdings,  was once again brought under  discussion. Alderman Frodc  Jorgensen informed those  present that, though Glenniont had levelled the ground  off as requested; thev had left  a ten foot drop at thc rear of  Hatfield's boundary. This  drop was in Ihe area allotted  to a lane. Jorgensen asked  that a letter be sent, advising  Glenniont they had thirty  days    in    which    to   rectify  the situation, or the Village  would do it and bill them. This  was passed by Council.  Speaking on the subdivision  aS a whole, Alderman Thompson asked. "How the hell  was this subdivision approved  in tlie first place, when there  wus no allowance made for  paved access to the lots?"  It was noted that thc unsold portion of the subdivision  plus an affiliated one on'  Bowen Island were on the  market, and that there may be  a chance of negotiating a  solution to the ongoing  problems with the new owners  it and when it was sold.

I will conclude with thc hope that the  next presentations arc better  patronized.  Fire! We like to think that  it always happens somewhere  else. Fire Prevention Week.  October H to 14, has special  significance this year, says  Gibsons Fire Chief, Carl  Horner, because the recent  propane lire in thc village  jolts us into remembering  the ever-present dangers of  lire from many causes in our  community.  The proclamation calls on  schools to hold fire drills  and to give special instruction in fire prevention. Thc  proclamation calls for the  inspection of theatres, hospitals, and assembly buildings  lo ensure lhc protection of  occupants when  lire strikes.  FRESH SHRIMP  & PRAWNS  4:00 P.M.

On thc subject of propane storage tanks. MePhee said that  there were simply too many storage tanks of hazardous size on  the Sunshine Coasl to be listed.  But il was to thc storage of gasoline that MePhee directed thc  directors' attention principally. He said that of thc scve   I  locations on the Sunshine Coast where the tanks were loc.  only one. the Esso storage station at Madeira Park, could n-  adequate safety standards.  For III., .est.

A  major area  of concern  3 Cars down there to stay  Chlorine lost  The Sunshine Coast Regional Board heard a chilling report  from Provincial Emergency Programme Co-ordinator Art  MePhee at the regular meeting held on Thursday, October  12. Mr. MePhee was reporting to the Regional Board on the  three rail cars containing chlorine lost recently from a barge on  the way to the MacMillan-Bloedel mill in Powell River, as well  as on the condition of the gasoline storage tanks on the Sunshine Coast.  MePhee reported that the Provincial Secretary of his organization had told him that the case of the missing chlorine tanks is  a closed case. "Thc chance of recovering the tanks is over,"  said MePhee. According to the Provincial Emergency Programme Co-ordinator, the chlorine in the rail cars is in liquid  form and constitutes no hazard to human beings. Apparently  in its liquid state the gas is heavier than water and will not be  able to rise to the surface if it is a depth of sixty fathoms. "It  can be lethal only to fish in a very limited area," said MePhee.  MePhee pointed out that the bottom of the ocean where it is  believed that the tanks went down is very rocky and rough with  high iron ore deposits which militate against a successful  search. "It is regrettable, "said MePhee, "but those three  tanks are there to stay."  Director George Gibb stated that he had heard that thc  chlorine cars had in fact been located. He was not sure of thc  details but said that he believed a Seaspan tug had been involved.  Another concern of thc Provincial Emergency Programme  Co-ordinator was the question of chlorine tanks which arc left  unguarded on Gibsons Wharf from time to time despite the  locked space provided for their protection. MePhee pointed out  that there was a combination lock on the area and all thc deliverers of thc propane had to do was ask the wharfinger for lhc combination but this they neglected to do.

Hc  also pointed out that the  largest oil tanker truck in  Canada serves the Sunshine  Coast over some very questionable highways. "There  are some storage difficulties  definitely." said MePhee.  "but a great deal of thc  danger lies in when these  materials are in transit."  Among thc recommendations made by Co-ordinator  MePhee was that thc Regional  District should acquire a  supply of thc materials used  to clean up oil slicks. Hc  pointed out that when vandals  released oil into Porpoise  Bay recently materials had  to be borrowed from Shell  Oil in Gibsons and Gulf Oil  on the Francis Peninsula.

Trustee Spcikermann was  away al a conference on  community schools in Winnipeg when thc Coasl News  called, so il is not known  whether or not he is seeking  re-election.  The Coasl News learned  that another Bowen Island  resident. Mr. Brian Hodgins,  is   considering   running   for  this seal. Area 'B' covers all  thc properties lying cast of the  Sechelt Indian Reserve  except for thc Village of  Gibsons, and il includes  Porpoise Buy. Tuwanek,  Davis Bay.

Gasoline hazards  We have absolutely no wish to be  alarmist, but when Art MePhee, Provincial Emergency Programme Coordinator points out Ihat in every case bul  one thc storage facilities for gasoline  here on the Sunshine Coast constitute  a potential hazard it's time to pay attention. Something should be done about it  and done soon.  There already is existing a proposal  thai a tank farm featuring all the latest  safety features in a centralized setting  should be constructed near Sechelt on  land which thc Sechelt Indian Band has  Chlorine cars  There is something highly unsatisfactory about this whole business of the  rail cars full of chlorine which just  cannot be found. It is difficult to understand how such things can be allowed to  happen. After all this is an age of advanced technology. We have equipment  which can scan the sea bottom and locate  fish. It is difficult to understand why  three rail cars can defy our expertise.  A suggestion made at the Regional  Board meeting that a Higgs Buoy or some  sort of electronic device could be attached  lo future shipments to facilitate Iheir  location in event of an accident would  appear to have merit.  Applause for students  Again the initiative of the students of  Elphinstone Secondary School is to be  applauded. In the last year or so they  have taken some commendable initiatives such as the Community Forum  which was so informative on the subject of herbicides and they have organized an upcoming forum on thc question"  of solid waste disposal which should  also prove most informative.  Their  most  recent   initiative  is  the  Telephone service  Wc had lunch recently with representatives of B.C. Telephone on the  subject of a recent editorial bemoaning  the fact that il is not possible to make  telephone calls throughout this area  vv ilhotit inclining lung distance charges.  The telephone man pointed out that a  survey a couple of years ago saw a majority of Pender Harbour residents in favour of being able to phone Gibsons  bul thai a majority of Gibsons residents  were not in favour of the direct line to  Pender Harbour.  There is of course a concomitant  increase in rates for such service, and  in these days of spiralling everything,  any increase that can bc avoided must be  given serious consideration.  It may be. however, that the residents  of Gibsons might be interested in casting  an eye on the future of our Sunshine  Coast. As time goes by there will without  doubt be a tendency to centralize administrative facilities and Sechelt has a  natural, central geographic advantage  over the older village. Sechelt will  undoubtedly continue to attract a variety  of governmental offices because of the  advantageous location. There arc payrolls involved in this matter and the  lack of toll-free telephoning from Gibsons  throughout the Sunshine Coast is an  additional disadvantage that thc village  does not need.  .from the files of Coast News  5 YEARS AGO  Agnes Labonte resigns as Chairman of the School Board for School  District #46.

Tilly Rolston, Minister of Education  in W.A.C.Bennett's government  and the first woman'in Canada to  hold a cabinet post with portfolio,  died recently in Vancouver General  Hospital.  30 YEARS AGO  The B.C.Power Commission  representatives visiting the Sunshine  Coast announce that two definite  power extensions will take place  this year In the Gower Point and  East Roberts Creek areas.  A Sechelt farmer, R.H.Henton,  points out that all the mooted  improvements in roads, transportation, postal service, lights, telephone, water, fire protection, schools,  health, etc., etc. means increases in  taxation which a goodly portion of  the residents of this area came here  to avoid.  L  said it would be willing to make available, lt makes sense to modernize and  centralize these hazardous materials  before a fire or another oil spill makes us  wish it had been done sooner.

Apart from the location of lost chlorine  cars, what investigation of the incident  has been undertaken? What steps are  being taken to ensure that a recurrence  of such a thing is highly unlikely? We  simply can't go around dumping lethal  materials into the environment with  long-range impunity, and yet there is  little evidence that this incident is  being treated as seriously as it would  seem to deserve.

In 1792, Captain George Vancouver had given  the island its name from its distinctive shape. F.L.Keeling had  pioneered this site, near Irby Point, in the 1880's. Clay from the  Keeling pre-emption was first made into bricks in 1900. Bricks  marked ANVIL ISLAND contributed their share to the burgeoning  city of Vancouver. Digging such as that seen in progress here left  the former orchard slope in a series of terraces. These are now  occupied by buildings of Daybreak Point Bible Camp, operated by  The Bretheren, of Vancouver. The beach at the summer camp's  beautiful little cove Is strewn with broken bricks from onetime kilns.  Keeling family photo courtesy Vancouver City Archives and Elphinstone Pioneer Museum. L.R.Peterson  mrmmmati  Musings  John Burnside  Years ago in teachers'  college my roommate, a fellow  called Sparky Carr from New  Liskeard in Northern Ontario,  stuck a cartoon on thc wall  of the tiny room we shared in  the men's dormitory, il  showed a couple of fellows  leaning back in chairs with  their feet on a desk which was  a veritable chaos of books,  papers, ash trays, empty  bottles, and discarded clothing. The caption read, "Tomorrow wc have to get  organized."  It was highly appropriate  at thc time and twenty years  later it has neither been  forgotten nor lost its relevancy. Then, as now, the  physical evidence of tasks  being planned or half underway tended to accumulate  around me while I fought  twin tendencies of indolence  and procrastination to an  unsatisfactory draw.  It's almost twenty years  since Sparky Carr and I shared  thai tiny, cluttered room and  organization and I arc still  at the negotiation table.  Despite the passage of thc  years and the chaos of personal affairs and belongings  which has been my constant  companion since those days  I have not lost hope that  organization and efficiency  arc jusl around the corner.  I am still on thc verge of thai  final breakthrough into a  world of calm and orderly  efficiency which I only glimpse  in the lives of others.  To the end of achieving.  at last, that breakthrough I  am joining lhc ranks of lhc  lis! makers. Now I am. of  course, aware thai list-making  in ilsell is no guarantee that  the longed-for organization  will surely follow. lull il seems  like a step iu lhc right direction. To begin wilh I'll try  for a general list and when I  have successfully achieved  the generalities then we'll  lake a crack al the refinements of list making, the daily  or weekly list.  Heading any list of mine  must be the injuction, "Stay  away from bars and taverns."  Since the days when Sparky  and I were roommates, I  have spent much of my lime  in northern and rural pails of  Canada where drinking is the  lifestyle of whole communities  and I have, let il bc said,  partaken of that lifestyle  with more enthusiasm than  good sense. Il is nol only Ihe  actual time spent in bars,  though lhal can he considerable, which constitutes  the problem but lhc lime  required the next day for  recuperation is also consider  able. Even on those occasions  when the after effects of a  prolonged bar session are not  particularly painful there is  Ihe facing the day with the  mind like congealed porridge,  the finding that the simplest  tasks become almost more  than can be borne. No. at  the head of the list, written  with the bold sure hand of  experience, let it be said that  organization and alcohol  arc largely incompatible.  Next on my general list  would be thai other deadly  enemy, nicotine. Smokers of  cigarettes are now forced into  a minority position and that  thc habit is deadly everyone  has accepted. A few years  ago. as lhc majority group,  smokers would assume public  smoking as n birthright.  They would light up and  puff away oblivious of the  discomfort they were causing  others. It's a different game  now. In buses, planes and  ferry boats, smokers find  that there arc places where  they may not sit. Nor arc non-  smokers prepared to bc the  passive victims of the noxious  fumes. Wilh word and gesture  they increasingly indicate  their discomfort and from  being smugly unaware the  smoker increasingly begins  to feci like a modern day  pariah.  Bul it is not the medical  or social aspects of smoking  that concern mc here, but how  it relates to organization  and efficiency. To begin wilh,  for such a disorganized  smoker as myself, life is  frequently reduced lo a virtually never-ending battle  to find cigarettes, matches,  ash-trays, or any combination  of the foregoing. Rarely,  when I sit down Hi have a  smoke in those spare corners  of Ihe day when one could be  doing something constructive, say like making another  list. Then, of course, thc  compulsive and heavy smoker  begins   to   create   smoking  limes in order to continue  to poison himself at his  pleasure. For example, I  am almost constitutionally  incapable of sitting and doing  nothing, unless I'm smoking  cigarettes.  And. finally, in addition  to thc time spent looking for  cigarettes, matches or ashtrays and the lime spent  actually smoking, I have a  feeling thai we do not know  even yet how thoroughly  thc constant inhalation of  noxious smoke affects us.  l-belicve the loss in efficiency  and achieved ends occasioned  hy smoking is great both, as  was thc case with alcohol,  in terms of time spent and  a Iter -e ffcet s s ti ffcred.  Well, so far as lists go, this  one is going to lake no particular prize for originality.  The twin villains of Al K.Hall  and Nicky Teen are taking a  predictable roasting, but I  do believe them lo be the archenemies of orderliness and  achievement and I am sure  that if I can summon up the  personal resources to hold  those villains al bay then  organization will bc within  my grasp.  On thc positive side of  organization I would like to  make fuller use of the magic  of thc mornings. It was ever  my favourite time of thc day,  the freshness of the new day  and the coming again of the  light are daily miracles which  are all loo frequently, by far  ton many, taken for granted or  forgotten about entirely.  I think I'll slop there, It's  not much of a list but I'm  new al Ihe game. I am however, confident thai if I could  hold Al K.Hall and Nicky  Tceii" al arms' length and  make heller use of the morning hours I'd be making a  giant step towards that  orderliness I am determined  to know,  I wonder if Sparky Carr  is doing any belter than his  cx-roomate.  SONNET  Words are the tools by which my thought is built;  The tinder, flint, and steel ol my desire.  A word may drown me in its mire of guilt,  Or set my world of fantasy afire.  Words on a page our written statutes weave,  Which tongues destroy with syllables of speech;  For fine indentured nothings may deceive,  And rhetoric place their shelter out of reach.  Words are but signs for what they hold in trust;  They are not things, but only names of things.  And yet they parry, guard, and lunge, and thrust,  As if their symbol' 'kings'' were very kings.  When I say ' 'truth'', I speak no truth profound;  Truth must be truth in fact, not in its sound.  L.R.Peterson  )f���������������������������������������������������������������������������>����������������������<  Slings & Arrows  George Matthews  Some thoughts and reflections on people who hate  people who love kids.  Last week, Peter Westlakc,  a Vancouver School Board  trustee, publicized a stark  fact which proved beyond a  shadow of statistical doubt  that teachers lake more sick  days than anyone else. In  itself that's not particularly  interesting except for the fact  that all of those responsible  people out there who are supposed to leap lo (he defense  of those who can't lake care  of themselves, sat back in  close - mouthed hypocrisy  and uttered not a word in  favour of thc lowly school  mistress.  Thc statistic hc referred  to was a Canada Manpower  figure which showed teachers  being sick an average of eight  days per year (pro-rated on  an annual scale), three days  more than their brothers and  sisters in management,  The mosl peculiar part of  thc publicizing of ihis fact  was how it was interpreted.  Nobody gasped in wonder  about Ihe poor teachers'  health: no one became concerned ihat lhc daytime  guardians of hall a million  children were he ing stricken  with illness forty percent more  often lhan other people ��� no.  the figure was tr.ed lo suggest  thai teachers were malingering, fcalherbedding frauds,  pigging out in lhc public  trough and then staying home  with indigestion.  There was not even the  most modest suggestion that  most teachers pul in hours of  their spare time marking,  preparing, coaching, working  under tense and often exhausting conditions only to  show up al 9:00 a.m. to face  a hundred or more potentially  virus laden, smiling faces.  One can only conclude thai  people like Peter Westlakc  arc cither naive, irresponsible  or jusl plain nuts. For those of  us who may bc inclined to  forget the hours a teacher  puts in, here is a questionnaire prepared by English  teacher, J.M.Waslenchuk.  and printed in thc English  teachers' professional magazine, Update that makes thc  point more clearly and concisely than lean:  "I am a teacher of English.  I am married, with children.  Bolh Ihe adults in our family  work; our housekeeping duties  are divided evenly and arc-  about thc same as for a single  person.  "So that students may improve their English, 1 feel  they should be given, among  other things, many written  assignments: these should bc  marked  properly and  punc  tually. 11 takes 5���8 minutes  to mark a one-paragraph  assignment, 10���15 minutes  to mark a multi-paragraph  essay. Longer assignments,  such as novelettes, journals,  reports, require more time.  "Lasl year I taught English  to 180 students and gave them  each len minutes of my  marking time per week.

In a  battered four-by-four that  Garth Dougan has loaned us,  we set out to explore a ghost-  camp at the mouth of Knight  Inlet. The road winds along  the opposite shore of the lake.  To our left is a great wall of  burned-off slash, a high,  tilling ruin of charred debris  and fire-flaked rock faces.  Wc could have gotten some  spectacular shots, had they  still been working this mountain-goat ground but. we are  several years too late.  The road gels progressively  rougher as wc rattle closer to  Glcndale Cove. In places, the  gravel is washed away and  half-fallen saplings crisscross  overhead like swords at a  military wedding. At last wc  strike thc ghostcamp.  It reveals itself by degrees  for the campsite has been  obscured by a stand of towering alders. Thc great-timbered garage abuts on thc  road and is the first building  wc see. Its dancehall-huge  inside and empty as a plundered tomb. In the water-  filled grease-pit, drowned  oil-drums lie under a blanket  of silt. Behind thc garage,  more ruins loom through thc  trees. I hurry up ahead of  thc others.

In the old meat-  house, a mossy chopping-  block squats morosely; there  are still cement basins in the  tumbledown washrooms.

Sunshine Coast Credit Union  Cowrie Street, Sechelt, B. C.  885-3255  By Allan J.Crane  This Friday, October 20,  the second film in the Kwahtahmoss Film Society's  retrospective devoted to the  films of Robert Altman is  to bc shown at the Twilight  Theatre commencing at 9:00  p.m. after the Twilight  Theatre's regular programme  (Hooper this week), which  will commence at 7:00 p.m.  for the occasion. The film is  Buffalo Bill and the Indians  or Sitting Bull's History Lesson which was released in  1976 but did not appear in the  Twilight Theatre's regular  programme. Thc film stars  Paul Newman as Buffalo  Bill, and thc cast also includes  Burt Lancaster. Joel Gray and  Ucraldinc Chaplin.  For the previous film,  California Split, I found an  excellent criticism of the film  in the British Film Institute's  Monthly Bulletin, and I  included this in my article  which appeared in the Coast  News on October 3. As mentioned in last week's article,  however, there were only  twenty people at that film,  so perhaps the less 1 say about  thc current offering the  better. Suffice it to say that  the film, which is in cinemascope, is reported as having  been made with Altman's  customary intelligence, and  that it is not quite what one  might expect in that the  Buffalo Bill legend comes in  for some debunking  during  the course of tne film which is  a circus and a satire of the  publicity which created the  William F.Cody and the  Show Business which sustained it.  Robert Altman is among  the most innovate of directors. His most recent film,  Weddings, has just been  released, and his previous  release, Three Women  (which the Society will present  at 9:00 p.m. on Friday,  November 3) has received  universal critical acclaim.  A new film from Altman is  every bit as significant as is  the latest film made by Werner Fassbinder, Lina Wert-  mullcr or Claude Chabrol,  and Altman is undoubtedly  a director of world stature  and one of the United States'  most highly regarded cinematic talents. 1 hope that a  reasonable number of people  will feel inclined to come to  the Twilight Theatre this  Friday at 9:00 p.m. to see  what he does with the Wild  West Show. It is expected  that thc show will commence  promptly at 9:00 p.m. The  last Film Society presentation commenced a little late  because The Buddy Holly  Story was a little longer than  the usual running time for  films, lt was also a case of  different formats, the Buddy  Holly film being in flat format while California Split  was in Panavision. It was  necessary, therefore, for the  masking to be removed from  the screen before the latter  film could be projected. Usually, the Film Society's  presentations will commence  promptly at 9:00 p.m. If you  arrive after ten to nine, you  are likely to miss part of the  film, and prompt arrival is  again requested so that the  ticket cashier and people  helping with memberships  will be able to see the complete presentations. It is hardly fair to expect them to  donate the time and then to  miss part of the programme  because people do not arrive  in time.  Twilight Theatre  Once again this week a  single film is featured in a  week-long engagement at  the Twilight Theatre. This  week the film is Hooper, a  fast and funny spoof of the  movie business, starring Burt  Reynolds, Sally Field, Brian  Keith, and James Best.  In Hooper, thc stuntman is  king and Burt Reynolds, who's  done a stunt or two in his  time, portrays the top stunt-  man in the business who's  position   is   threatened   by  CLASSIFIED NOTE  Drop off your Coast News  Classifieds at Campbell's  Family Shoes * Leather  Goods In down-town Sechelt.  Jan-Michael Vincent.  Audiences will enjoy this  'entertaining comedy which at  no time takes itself too seriously. Hooper will be shown  at the Twilight Theatre Wednesday through Tuesday,  October 18���24. The film will  be shown at the regular time  of 8:00 p.m., except for  Friday and Saturday. Friday,  October 21, it will be shown at  7:00 p.m. to make way for  the Film Society, presentafion,  and on Saturday, October 21,  it will have two showings  at 7;00 and 9:00 p.m.  The next attraction scheduled for the Twilight will  be Jaws II.  <TWI LIGHT  <THEATRIb  886-2827  GIBSONS  Wed., Thurs., Fri., Sat., Sun., Mon.', Tues.

General Notes: During thc  next two weeks, the Sun.  Moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars  and Uranus bunch together  in Scorpio bringing jealousy,  secrecy and passion to our  daily activities. It's time to  control strong feelings and  resist urges to seek revenge.  So many planets in Scorpio  may coincide with news of  spectacular escapes from  death, long-awaited cures or  other medical break-throughs.  Babies born at this time  may become investigators,  detectives, surgeons, psychologists or searchers for  the truth. They will bc intense  emotional and fixed in their  unconventional opinions. A  few will become famous  astrologers.  ARIES (March 21-Aprll 19)  Increased energy is linked  once again to the financial  blunders of those close to  you. Becoming too involved  with the possessions or feelings of other people could  trigger acts of jealousy or  revenge. Focus is on shared  expenses, insurance, taxes,  settlements, wills, legacies  and secret documents.  TAURUS (April 20-May 20)  Strong feelings, passion and  emotions surround all marriages, partnerships and  involvements. Agreements  and dealings with others have  now reached a critical level.  There's no turning back.  Loved ones demand to know  the truth.  GEMINI (May 21-June 21)  Accent is on health and  employment matters. Work-  scene decisions have to be  made despite emotional involvements and passionate  self-interest. Prepare for  overheated arguments with  co-workers who refuse ' to  adapt. Medical problems may  be linked to the car, nose,  throat or one's private  regions.  CANCER (June 22-July 22)  Spotlight is on super-  active social life. It's your  turn to forget worries; go oul,  have fun and soak up pleasures, amusements, romance,  risky involvements and speculation. Direct excess energy  into sports and creative outlets. This trend continues so  plan to live it up!  LEO (July 23.Aug.22)  Focus is on intense domestic 'activities, real estate or  land deals. New family  arrangements may produce  emotional outbursts, stubbornness or resentment.  Advice is to give all members  a chance to let'off steam. Thc  arrival of unexpected strangers or visitors necessitate  changes in weekend plans.  VIRGO (Aug.23-Scpt.22)  Prepare for two very hectic weeks. Frustration now is  having too much on your mind  and little time to tackle  priorities. Local journeys,  phone calls and correspondence will be emotionally drain  ing. Advice is to limit daily  schedule to manageable level.  Learn lo say 'No' and mean it.  LIBRA (Sept.23-Oct.23)  Accent is on personal  finances, buying, selling,  arranging big deals and getting the possessions you've  always wanted. Be warned  that careless cash transactions could soon leave you  with nothing. Irresistible  urge to spend has to be  controlled. Guard well all  wallets, purses, credit cards,  keys and common sense.  SCORPIO (Ocl.24-Nov.22)  Wilh six planets soon to  move through your sign, you Tl  be the centre of attraction  wherever you go. Irresistible  charisma, personality and  charm should bring opportunities. How you present  yourself to Ihe world is the key  to personal advancement.  Those born around Nov.  15 face intense romantic  developments.  SAGITTARIUS   (Nov.23-Dec.  21)  Accent is still on secret  activities, underhanded  schemes, cheats and deceivers. Check all documents  before signing. Those enjoying irresponsible love affairs  should "be more discreet.  With hospitals. nursing  homes and prisons under  strong focus, it's time lo visit  the sick or the lonely,  CAPRICORN (Dec.22-Jan.19)  It's an emotional lime for  those associated wilh group  activities, local clubs and  societies. Traditionally accepted rules and regulations  may soon clash wilh more  efficient, streamlined approaches. Resignations seem  imminent. Meanwhile, friends  and acquaintances are uncooperative and disruptive.  AQUARIUS (Jan.20-Feb. 18)  Standing up for your local  reputation, honour and position continues to be your  number one priority during  Ihe next few weeks. Advice is  to keep feelings and emotions  under control. Planning future  revenge is a waste of time. A  sudden message could solve  thc major issues within hours.  Don't under-cstimalc the  intelligence of those in power.  PISCES (I eb.19-Mar.20)  Once again, accent is un  long-distance communications, people and places far  away. Those involved in job  upgrading or continuing  education courses should  trim down overloaded programmes. Now's lhc lime to  direct energy into deeper  studies, philosophy, law,  religion or serious literature.  Meanwhile, any romance will  bc linked to strangers from  foreign lands.  ���       Sunshine Coast ���  S   Fitness & Recreation *  I             Service I  J       now has a phone J  885-5440 '���  Senior Citizens;  Association  Branch 69, Sechelt  ?a\\ ftasaat & 7ea  Sr. Citizens' Hall, Sechelt,     ���  Saturday, OCTOBER 28.  1:30 ���4:00 p.m.  HOME BAKING JEWELLERY  SEWING DOOR PRIZE  NOVELTIES QUILT RAFFLE  AND DRAW  Admission (includes tea) Adults 750,  Children (12 yrs.) 35c oudsi imbws, uctoDer i/, 19/a  Book Review  New Sci-fi magazine  Bv John Moore vague   and   painfully    self-   culture; the magazine being   .  congratulatory "statement of   the   printed   word's   closest  This year the month of principles".

Without any hesitation,  Harry ��� eighty-one years  old ��� said thai he would go  and spend Christmas with his  sister in Australia. Thc last  lime ihcy had spent Christmas together was when hc  was ten years old, shortly  before his father died, and  Ihe family was separated.  Although they communicated  regularly, they had had only  one visit together: that was  in 1967 when she came to  Canada with her son on a  holiday.  Without carrying thc con-  886-9737  vcrsation any further at Ihat  point, Marie Conner went to  work organizing a combination  dance and party in honour  of Harry, with the proceeds  going toward a ticket to Down  Under. It was not until thc  hall at thc Legion was arranged, ihe band was hired  and invitations were being  sent out, that Harry was let  into the picture. The reason  for this was, although he is  the first to volunteer or to  help out when needed, hc  does not feel people should  put themselves out for him.  In actuality everyone involved  in the venture came out winners ��� the party was a  great success and everyone  had a fine time.  The   Legion   at  Gibsons  donated thc hall free, the Pen  Kings played for reduced  rates, and from all reports,  gauged the audience well.  A major portion of the cost  of the trip was made from the  proceeds of the dance, with  the rest coming from Harry's  family.  He catches the plane on  the 17th of December, and  will be spending six weeks  Down Under with his sister  and family. It will be a Christmas never to be forgotten.  Harry and his friends wish to  thank everyone who made  this possible.  This type of community  spirit is what makes the Sunshine Coast a great place to  live in.  Eighty-one year old Harry Jube was delighted by the  gesture made by his friends and neighbours last week,  which saw them raising funds to assist him to visit his  sister in Australia.

Fri.  and the number of times it  has been seen cut out and kept  in various homes along the  coast, such must be a poem  written by an eighty-five  year old woman which  appeared in this paper several  weeks ago. "If I could Live  My Life Over", by Nadine  Stair, was an affirmation of  all the simple pleasures of  life, and a realization that it  is within the powers and  choice of each of us lo experience more of them. This wise  old lady would accentuate  the positives, eliminate Ihe  negatives, and say "Yes"  much more than "No" on  her next go-round on this  wheel of life.

This is an ongoing  problem which was again  reported to the Sechelt  detachment last week.  Gibsons Area:  October   7:   Two   break-ins  were reported from Gambier  Island.  From one residence  fishing   tackle,   candles,   a  flashlight and a sail bag were  taken.    From    the    second,  several bottles of liquor were  stolen.  October 9: At Melody Point on  Keats    Island    a    break-in  and  theft  was  reported.   A  home on Beach Avenue was  entered   and   a  quantity   of  liquor was  stolen from  the  refrigerator.  October   10:   A   CB.   radio  was taken from a home on  Sargent Road.  October 13: It was reported  to the RCMP that a shed on  Chaster Road was broken into,  during   the   previous   week.  A small cabinet with nuts,  bolts and washers was taken.  Replacement value of the  items is set at $150. A 1963  Pontiac Strato Chief was  stolen from Highway 101 and  Pratt Road, where it was  parked. The vehicle is red  with primer paint on the left  front door. It has not yet been  recovered.  Sechelt to Earls Cove:  October 7: B.C.Tel informed  the police that the telephone  lines at Trout Lake had been  damaged, by someone shooting at them with a high-  powered rifle. Spent 30/30  cartridges were found close  by.  October 8: In order to miss  a deer on Garden Bay Road  at the dump, a driver swerved  and went out of control.  The vehicle landed on its  roof. There were no injuries  and charges were not laid.  At the north end of Sakinaw  Lake, a twelve foot aluminum  Harboureraft boat was stolen.  The letter K was scratched  underneath the seat. A yellow  Initiative  Continued from Page One  1977 we pul together a videotape which we Hied to air  over Channel 10. but because  of lack of equipment, it was  a disaster.  "John Thomas has given  us lhc following basic list of  equipment needed to produce  quality signals suitable for  his standards: a Time Base  Corrector; video switcher:  V cassette VTR wilh auto-  malic assemble function and  full interchange with J/i"  Ll-malie lapes coming from  other machines; a triple  d" B W monitor and eventually colour cameras. We  are nol expecting to go into  fully Hedged TV production  overnight though we are  excited by Ihe things we  could do. We would jusl like  lo use our Channel 10 as  another wtiv lo reach out to  the Community. It would  also enable us lo gct critical  feedback and thus improve  our techniques.  "John Thomas says thai  extension of service has to  be his top priority and we  understand this. It is also  true Ihat Channel 10 will  only benefit cable subscribers.  Presently only half Ihe community is served by cable  and we do not know whether  they share our enthusiasm lor  thc potential of television.  So wc are planning a spring  Forum on Community TV to  raise awareness and lo find  oul if ihere is community  support.

The owner  left it while he went for  lunch at his home two-  hundred yards away; when he  returned it was gone.  October 9: A break-in occurred at Jackson Brothers  Logging in Wilson Creek. Two  youths were apprehended  and charged with using a  blue paint spray can to spray  a car which they then stole.  They were apprehended in  Gibsons the same day. The  same two youths were also  questioned on another break-  in at European Motors in  Wilson Creek. Pop, a small  amount of change and cigarettes were taken.  October 11: A newly purchased set of licence plates,  MSX 147, was stolen from thc  inside of a vehicle parked on  West Beach Avenue.  October 12: A tlare gun and  pellets were stolen from a  boat tied at the government  wharf in Secret Cove. The gun  is shaped like a pen and holds  about twenty pellets.  around similar situations  in other parts of the country  so we should ask your advice;  b) we think that taking part  in the process is the best way  to learn about it and this  Hearing gives us that opportunity. You may be interested to know that the textbooks supplied by the province of B.C. for this course  are all American and therefore refer to the FCC but no  mention of the CRTC!  "If the Commission would  like further information we  are willing to appear at the  Hearing and perhaps while  the CRTC Commissioners  and staff are in Vancouver  it could be arranged for us  to meet with perhaps Mrs.  Rosalie Gower our B.C.  Commissioner and Mr.  Peter MacDonald who, wc  understand, will be heading  up the Vancouver office in  the near future."  Pages from a Life-log  Continued from page four  Our work here is finished.  The following morning, we  check out a second ghost-  camp a Reid Creek which is  of more-recent vintage but  yields some good shots of  old donkey-engines, high-  lead blocks, derelict power-  saws and other discarded  equipment. Then wc push  north again.  That evening, after a  long run up Johnson Strail  and a shorter jog inland  again, along river-narrow  channels, we arrive at Minstrel Island.

If this property is not kept  for park purposes, what will  happen to il? The owners wish  to sell, and if not now, will  sell sooner or later. Thc obvious purchaser will more than  likely bc a developer, who will  want lo make a profit on his  investment.

Editor:  As a part-time resident of  the Coast, working hard to  become a full-lime resident,  I would like to voice my  opinion on the charges of the  Seehelt Provincial Court  Re the Hydro violation, concerning Clowholm Lake.  I do not think Hydro should  be fined ($2,000) as this fine  would be paid, in thc final  analysis, by the (we) taxpayers; thus allowing the  cuiprits "off the hook".  Should not the people, as  persons responsible, be  jailed?  Thc culprits surely must  be the officials of Hydro on a  charge of neglect.

An open and shut case for  heating your home with wood  fyn\.  tafia  Considering the cost of oil,  gas and electric heat these  days, it's easy to see why hundreds of thousands of  homeowners across North  America have recently installed a wood stove.  But there's more to be said  for heating with wood than the  fact that it saves a lot of money.  Wood smells and sounds  good as it burns. And, in an  age of vanishing resources, it's  one form of energy that's still  growing.  In fact, there's almost as  much forest land in North  America today as when the colonists first arrived. So regardless of other energy shortages,  we've got wood to burn.  The burning question.  Bul for centuries, the problem wilh wood has been efficiency. What should we burn il  in to get Ihe most heat out of It?  The lireplace is no solution.  It gives us beautiful dancing  flames, but very little warmth.  Some 95'/r of firewood's heat  disappears up   tap,  the chimney,  pulling a lot of  expensive  furnace-heated  air with it.  Benjamin  Franklin's stove,  and the other  cast iron stoves that followed  were an improvement. They  limited the amount of air that  could reach the flames, so  wood lasted longer.  And they trapped the  heat inside, so that it  radiated throughout the  room.  But still there  were problems.  Cast iron expands a greal  deal when it's  hot, allowing    air to seep in V  through scams and feed the  fire. And most of these stoves  did little to burn the gases that  escape burning wood, containing mosl of its heat potential.  The burning answer.  Then came the Fisher Stove.  Its unique iwo-step combustion  chamber re-circulated wood  gases back into the flames for  almost total combustion, resulting not only in more heat  but fewer ashes.  The Fisher Stove's patented  spin draft controls  and virtually airtight construction  meant almost abso  lute control over how  much air reached  ihe fire.  And its carefully  welded, solid steel  construction made sure every  Fisher Stove would deliver  years and years of remarkable  heating efficiency.  Naturally, imitations followed. But there's still no other  stove around that can offer all  the patented design features  you'll find in a Fisher Slove.  Save 50% or more  on your heat bill.  We can show you a variety  of Fisher Stove models. One of  them can cut your present healing bill by 50% or more. Or  maybe even eliminate it  entirely.  fcj And as authorized Fisher  Stove dealers, we can  give you answers to any  ^questions you might have  *       about heating with  wood. So come in soon.  Maybe you can't do  much about what people  have to pay these days for  gas, oil or electric heal. But  with one of our Fisher Stoves  in your house, you can do  plenty aboul what you have to  An idea Canada is warming up lo.  885-2568   C ELECTRONICS  Radio/haek  authorized Sales Centre  Cowrie St., Sechelt, B.C.
