The students will be ip, the  area until Sunday, February  18, and their visit will culminate with a public meeting in  the Lunch Room of Elphin-1  stone Secondary School at  2:00 p.m. on Sunday to discuss with interested members  of the public the project and  the students' input which will  take the form of a seminar on  Community Meeting places.  Accompanying the students  at the meeting will be Architecture professors John Haaf  and D.Vaughan. Members of  the public are invited to be in  attendance at the meeting.  It is hoped that billets will  be found for the students  during their stay; that is  for Thursday, Friday, and  Saturday nights this week.  Any member of the community who has a spare bedroom or a rumpus room and  could take two or three students for these three nights  should leave their phone  numbers at the Coast News  office.

The truck was loaded with 1,500 gallons of oil at the time of the accident. Firemen  are shown here laying Conweb to soak up the slight spillage. Provincial Emergency  Programme Co-ordinator Art MePhee was on the scene and noted that after the  fuel was pumped back into another tanker only 27 gallons were unaccounted for.  At the Gibsons Council  Best income returns?  By George Cooper  ' 'Do you investigate where the best income returns from your  short term deposits can be obtained?" This was the blunt question to Village Council put by former alderman, Kurt Hoehne at  the February 6 meeting in Gibsons. Hoehne contended that  cash the Village did not need to use for a number of months  should be earning interest for the taxpayers to ease their load of  taxes. "The lending institutions should be asked to bid on any  short term deposits that the Village may seek," said Hoehne,  "For instance, there is a credit union established in Gibsons,  1,400 members strong, that has had the opportunity in past  years to take such deposits but hasn't heard of any bids being  asked for the last couple of years."  Alderman Goddard, Finance Chairman, replied that the  Village had not looked for this kind of income last year but had  done so two years ago. Clerk-Treasurer Jack Copland stated,  "There was less cash flow in 1977 and 1978 because of Neighbourhood Improvement Programme requirements in the Village, and we are at present in the last year of a three-year  contract with the Bank of Montreal. I will say that in 1976 the  Village did get the best return on their term deposits from the  credit union."  The great bulk of tax money flows into the Village accounts in  mid-June to early July before the penalty date. As the public  becomes aware of the bonus which the new by-law, No. 328  pre-payment of taxes, provides, a more even flow of tax payments between January and June may develop, Generally the  Village has cash to spare in mid-year but is short in January and  on. Putting mid-year cash to work earning Interest in short  term deposits can offset some of the cost of money that has to  be borrowed in the first half of the year following, and in this  way save the taxpayers money. In the past two years Council  has followed a policy of paying its share of projects like the  swimming pool and parks development out of current taxes  rather than spreading such costs over several years in the form  of debt. In the view of some this policy hampers other municipal  requirements, such as roads. Council will no doubt reflectively  consider what policies they will adopt for 1980,  In Committee reports Al-   Dixons of 1018 Gower Point  derman Marshall commended  the maintenance crew for  keeping roads clear and water  lines open during the several  periods of snow and frost in  January. "We will have a  considerable amount of road  work to carry out because of  the damage frost has done to  our paving," he stated. A  letter  of jhanks   from   the  was very much alive and that  studies on the feasibility of  the project were well on the  way to completion. "When we  have all the facts and figures  ready, we will present them to  the public for their consideration," he stated. Council  endorsed the Chamber of  Commerce nomination of  Ian Morrow to the Board of  Directors of the B.C.Ferry  Authority to represent the  Sunshine Coast. The mayor  and Alderman Goddard were  appointed to attend the annual  meeting of the Association of  Vancouver Island municipalities in Esquimau, February  16 and 17. A letter from Elphinstone Student Research  Productions inviting Council  to participate in a community  forum in April was filed.  In response to a letter offering information on organizing a local Canada Week in  July, Council will send for  details of the grant programme and "twinning" ���  exchanging ideas with a  village in some distant part of  Canada. Alderman Trainor  will attend the annual meeting  of the Southwestern B.C.  Tourist Association February  23 in Vancouver. Seminars  will deal with co-operative  advertising and packaging  visitor attractions in a community.

"Always happy to see  our citizens acknowledge good  work by our crews," said  Mayor Blain.  Alderman Trainor reported  thaLJhe Marina Committee  Good tax  mothers on  Page 10  Regional Board Directors sought and received the resignation  of Director Charles Lee as the Chairman of the Regional Board  Finance Committee at the meeting held on February 8. The surprise move came as a result of a letter that Lee sent to the individual Directors which was strongly critical of Board Chairman Ed Nicholson.  The letter was written apparently on the subject of the sums  of money that the Regional Board proposes to make available  to the Co-ordinator of the Provincial Emergency Programme,  Art MePhee, and the members of the Sunshine Coast Fitness  and Recreation Service. MePhee is slated to receive $2,000  from the Regional Board to supplement the sum he receives  from the provincial government and each of the five members  of the Fitness and Recreation Service would receive $1,000  from the Regional Board to supplement a Canada Works  Grant.  Before he was elected Chairman, Director Nicholson advocated Regional Board support for the programmes in question. Characterizing Nicholson as a 'Civil Servant with a comfortable financial refuge in these times' Lee suggested that  there was a conflict of interest 'at best' in his support of the  Provincial Emergency Programme and the Federal Works  Grant recipients. According to Lee's letter support for these  programmes was "taking bread from the mouths of the old, the  poor, the defenceless, the voiceless, and the young marrieds  trying to bring up a family and, of course, the unemployed  homeowners."  Members of the Regional Board contacted by the Coast  News described themselves as outraged at the attack on the  Chairman. One Director pointed out that for a home in the  $50,000 range there would be no increase in taxes at all as a  result of the $7,000 in question and that he himself with a more  expensive property could look at an increase in his tax bill of  just 57< per year. "To say that this is taking the bread out of  anyone's mouth is ridiculous," he said.  Another Director characterized the letter as 'a malicious  distortion', "There's two or three fellows on the Board quite  interested in discussing these issues but because of the way  they are presented we wind up talking about Charles Lee and  Ed Nicholson instead," he said.  In his letter, Director Lee said, "If you, Mr. Chairman, and/  or the Board feel I don't know what the Hell 1 am talking about  you have a very simple remedy." The Board took it.  Private ownership cited    .^^^^^^^^^^^^^^  Legality of Arena aid questioned  n���.J a n a .w .-- *-t     ���      ��� ������ -    ���" .    - -  Regional Board Director Charles Lee questioned whether the  Sechelt Arena was a suitable recipient of public funding at the  regular meeting of the Regional Board held on Thursday, February 8. Lee pointed out that the Arena had shareholders. "Is  the funding of the arena in fact legal?" asked Lee, pointing out  that the Regional Board could be in the position of funding an  entity under private ownership.  Lee estimated that the deficit for this year in the arena was  $44,000, although his figures were questioned by Mayor Harold  Nelson of Sechelt, sitting as the Sechelt representative at the  Regional Board, and Village Clerk Tom Wood who was in the  audience. He also pointed out that it would appear that the total  deficit of the three facilities which had been suggested as  suitable recipients of Regional Board support, the Pender  Harbour Pool, the Gibsons Pool, and the Sechelt Arena, for the  present year would be in the neighbourhood of $110,000.  Director Lee felt that it would be inappropriate to utilize the  three mill leeway allowed the Regional-Board for the purpose  of taking up the deficit of the three recreational facilities.  "I recommend we do not spend the total of three mills," said  Lee, "thereby tying the hands of future Boards."  Lee's recommendation that the Regional Board should not  take responsibility at this time for the operating deficits of the  recreational facilities was passed by the Directors with only  Gibsons representative Jack Marshall casting a negative vote.  Director Charles Lee reads the report he made on  the Sechelt Arena situation to the Regional Board  meeting on Thursday, February 8.  Approval in principle  Porpoise Bay  tourist complex  A proposal for a tourist and and recreation complex at the  head of Porpoise Bay was given approval in principal by members of the Sechelt Council, last week.  The concept is spearheaded by Hank Hall. It will, if adopted,  be a two stage development; the initial phase would be to build  a marina, then in the second the grounds and buildings would  be constructed. It would be a two to three year project from start  to completion.  Mr. Chang, speaking on behalf of Intercommerce Developments outlined the proposal to members of Council.  The main building in the complex would be three stories,  comprising an accommodation area, a clubhouse, a restaurant  and a business section on the ground floor. The grounds would  have tennis courts, a swimming pool and public boardwalks.  It was felt by Mr. Chang that the facilities would be ideal for  attracting small business conventions and the marina would be  a good starting point for boating trips along the "inland sea"  towards the Skookumchuck.  Alderman Jorgensen liked the concept, "This is a good start.  The Chamber of Commerce has always wanted something  for the tourists," he said,  As pointed out by Mr. Chang, this proposal would not interfere with the commercial activity within the community and  would concentrate the tourism in one area.  One point Council was not clear about, was whether or not the  plans as shown would bring the residential area into the category of condominiums, which the area is not zoned for.  It was moved that the proposal go before the Planning Committee for further study.  News from the Sechelt Council  Sechelt Council was advised against the collection of  the $50,000 performance  bond posted by Glenmont  Holdings at their meeting  held on February 7. This advice was presented in a letter from the Village's legal  advisor, Mr, Emerson, at last  Wednesday's Council meeting. As a result of this information, Alderman Thompson  suggested that in future a  cash deposit should be requested. This was felt not to  be feasible by Alderman MacDonald as performance bonds  were standard practice.  Council will look into this  problem in order to prevent  its recurrence.  The Clerk, Tom Wood,  reported on a meeting he had  had with Mr. Wiffin of the  Liquor Administration Board  (LAB) regarding the opening  of a cabaret in the Village.  Wiffin had informed him that  a license could not be issued to  other than the owner of the  premises, and that it could not  be situated within one half  mile of a provincial highway. The proposal had been to  open the cabaret in the  Anderson building on Cowrie  Street.  The representative from  Council on the Arena Committee, Alderman Jorgensen,  told Council that the self-help  suggestion for financing  was being put into practice.  A raffle was in the organizational stage. The tickets would  be $25 each. Amongst the  prizes would be a trip to  Reno. He did feel, however,  that it was time for new blood  in the organization.  It was still unclear whether  the proposed building on Lot  A of D.L. 1331 conformed with  the Village Plan. This point  was seen to be of importance  by Alderman MacDonald,  as time was important and  clarification would be needed  before setting the date for a  public meeting. Alderman  Thompson moved that the  matter be referred to committee.  Mr. Koch of Sunshine  G.M. asked Council for rezoning of the bus depot, in  order that he may use the  space as a display area for  camper and trailer sales. The  wording in the zoning bylaw was felt to be open to  interpretation and the matter  was referred to committee  for further study.  In the committee reports,  Alderman Kolibas informed  Council that there were still  two opposing factions in the  ambulance dispute and the  situation was still up in the  air. Other information from  her committee was that Lorraine Goddard had been  appointed the chairman of the  health unit.  It was moved that Planner  Doug Roy be retained as  Planning Consultant until  June, when the situation  would again come up for review.  Roy felt that completion of  the Community Plan would  take at least two more months.  Alderman MacDonald  moved that the garbage bylaw be referred to committee.  It was fitting, considering  the crowded situation in the  Council Chambers, that the  evening was chosen as the  one to strike a committee to  study possible modification to  the municipal offices.

The NHL's Waterloo  It looks as though the painful truth is  going to have to be faced, folks. Hockey  as played by Canadian players in the  National Hockey League is not the superior product that we have been led to  believe it was, not even when the very  best N.H.L. players play against the  Russians in the middle of the season  when they are as close to peak condition  as they are likely to get.  Let's hope that we don't hear too many  excuses for the recent convincing Russian victory in the so-called Challenge  Cup last weekend. You know what they  will be. We will hear it said that the  N.H.L. team just didn't have time to  prepare for the series while the Russians  play together almost all the time. We will  hear it said that the N.H.L. has a schedule of over eighty games a year compared to the Russians' forty-four and no  doubt other excuses will be presented to  us.  The fact of the matter is that at the present time the Russians play better hockey  than the N.H.L. teams do. They are better coached. They play more consistently  with top class players. The N.H.L.  talent pool is now spread too thin to ensure top class competition on a regular  basis and that has a diminishing effect  on the top players.  It is not, yet, that the Russians are  intrinsically better players. In the series  last weekend there really wasn't that  much to choose from in the matter of  the playing skills of the players involved,  but superior training and coaching paid  off, gave the Russians that narrow edge  which makes a wide difference in results.  We have been hearing for years about  the thoroughness of the Russian hockey  programme with hundreds of thousands  of young players being taught the fundamentals of the game by thorough, trained-  Lee's resignation  It is the feeling here that the less  said about the events which led to the  resignation of Director Charles Lee as  Chairman of the Regional Board Finance  Committee, the better. It would seem  that the letter Mr. Lee sent to the Regional Directors was unfortunte both in  tone and in intention.  Let us content ourselves with the hope  that in the coming months the Regional  Directors apply themselves without rancour or egotism to the business of conducting the affairs of the region. By far  the majority of the Directors wish for  nothing else and the public deserves  nothing else.  from the files of Coast News  5YEARSAGO  Harvie McCracken and Joe Bat-  tista, an advance guard of the C.B.C,  are in town to sound out housing conditions as the Beachcombers T.V.  series plans its fourth season.

The result is that the Russians  with ten times the population have a  vastly greater player pool to choose from  and vastly fewer top teams to stock than  is true of Canadian players. The wonder  is perhaps that the Canadians continue to  do as well as they do with the haphazard  nature of conducting hockey for the  young which sees volunteers doing the  best they can but without any real  skill-teaching taking place.  Nor can we realistically look for any  immediate improvement in the situation.  Canada probably cannot afford the kind  of programme the Russians run for young  hockey players and why should the Canadian government institute such a programme so that young Canadians can go  off as soon as they reach maturity and  merchant their skills in Atlanta, Georgia,  Los Angeles, California, and St. Louis,  Missouri. As in many other fields, Canada has got itself into the situation where it  exports its resources for someone else's  gain and the painful realization must  come that we cannot expect a strong  national team in the circumstances under  which Canadian young men presently  play hockey.  A heartening note is the fact that even  the professional apologists who make  comfortable livings out of talking about  the N.H.L. are acknowledging that we  have something to learn from the Russians in the matter of preparing hockey  players to represent their country.  In the larger world outside the realm  of hockey playing it is true that successive Canadian governments have allowed  the vast resources of Canada to be controlled and exploited by non-Canadian  powers. Last weekend's Challenge  Cup .brought that point symbolically  home on the ice in the game that Canadians invented and once dominated.  <*���  mid  I  *.*���* 42  ���    ��  ��� *Ai  -if  M'  1  A mystery picture this week, folks.

Any readers who can identify participants in this picture  or the time of it, are asked to write in and tell us what they can about  the picture.  MWIBWW  Musings  John Burnside  Slings & Arrows ,��*   ��  George Matthews  ^  I was talking with someone  just the other day with nostalgia and warmth about the  plays for children we used to  do here on the Sunshine  Coast. I wonder if any of the  sometimes readers of these  meanderings remember  some of them.  When George Matthews,  Eileen Glassford, and myself  founded the Driftwood Players we did not come to children's theatre right away.  Eileen suggested it rights  from the start but George and  I wanted to try our hands at a  variety of adult stuff.  In the first years we did  such plays as The Lover by  Harold Pinter, The Waltz of  the Toreadors by Jean Anou-  ilh, Suddenly Last Summer by  Tennessee Williams, and an  English farce entitled See  How They Run, the name of  whose author escapes me. All  of them were memorable in  their own way but it was not  until a few members of the  club attended Notre Dame  University in Nelson in the  summer of 1971 to take a  drama course and thereby got  involved in a production of  Plnocchlo that the bug for  entertaining children bit  us. It was a revelation and a  delight to all of us involved  and I added my voice to that  of Eileen's when I returned to  Gibsons, suggesting that it  was time we did some children's theatre.  The first children's play we  did was The Red Shoes and  Colleen Elson, now principal  of Cedar Grove Elementary,  was the director. We did it  under an agreement with  the local School Board and  the first one very nearly  didn't come off when the lead  actor was fired from the mill  just a week before the scheduled production and left the  area. Yours truly was pressed  into service as the villain  Reynardo J.Snogg and we  covered any untidinesses  caused by lack of rehearsal  with some of the most hell-  for-leather chase scenes imaginable. By the time we had  done the play for all the  school children from Langdale  to Egmont, I had bruises on  bruises from a thousand  pratt falls but the kids loved it  and everyone involved was  hooked on children's theatre.  In the cast of The Red  Shoes were Doug Honey-  bunn, Els Mercer (Zuidema  at that time), and Robbie  Ashby.  The play was performed in  June of 1972 when I was still  teaching at Elphinstone Secondary School and we were all  hugely delighted with the  total absorption and exuberance of the young audiences. They hooted the vil  lain and cheered the good  guys; they yelled advice and  instruction to the virtuous and  mis-directions to the evil  forces. It was great good  fun.  The next children's play we  did was a juvenile version of  Androcles and the Lion. In  that cast were George Matthews as the braggadocio  villain, Nest Lewis Austin  as the wicked witch, and the  ever versatile Colleen Elson as  Androcles. Once again-1' Was  pressed into service at the  last minute, essaying the role  of the Friendly Lion when the  almost unheard of happened  and Pat Baker got a job and  had to withdraw at the last  minute. This time I had no  lines to worry about and apart  from roaring myself hoarse  had no problems. The juvenile  leads were played by Debby  McNevin and Randy Kampman from the local high  school.  My warmest memory of that  play took place in Madeira  Park. Again, during every  performance the children in  the audience were vocal and  volatile in their participation  in the play and we had to  specifically ask their conscientious teachers not to  ask them to be quiet for it  was participation that we were  after ��� and we got it. In Madeira Park, George and Nest,  the arch-villains, had strutted  and grimaced their way to the  top of the children's hate  parade and near the end of  the play when the friendly  lion was chasing them and  they collided and fell, five  little gaffers had George  wrapped in a net he had  been carrying by the time the  friendly lion came to collar  him. "Here he is, Lion,"  they said to me with great  satisfaction. Again, if I remember correctly, that would  be February of 1973.  Surely the highlight of our  entertainments for children  was the play we did in 1974,  however. We decided that we  would try our hands at the  kind of English pantomime  that delights youngsters  yearly in the U.K. and that  we would concoct the script  ourselves. As is traditional,  we chose a well-known'  children's story for the theme  and the original Dick Whit-'  tington on the Sunshine Coast  was born.  At first we had a group of  half a dozen only but we had |  so  much  fun  at  rehearsals  that people started coming to i  watch. If they came to three  consecutive    rehearsals    we i  gave them a part. By the time <  we were done we had a cast  of thirty-five ranging in age I  from   twelve-year-old   Mike  McNevin     to     seventy-twi.  year old Andy Randall. Dick  Whittington was played by  Nest Lewis Austin, Allan  Crane was the evil King Rat,  Bruce Wilson was the Good  King and Mary Livingston  played his daughter, the fair  Alice. Dr. Roy Klein was  memorable as Roberto de  Creeko and Bonnie Paetkau  was the Good Fairy. In pantomime tradition, George Matthews and I played the Ugly  Sisters of young Dick. Dodie  Archer and Margaret Jones  also contributed memorable  vignettes.  The show had nine original  songs written by Gordie  Hauka, two major dances  choreographed by Ronnie  Dunn, Ken Dalglcish now of  the Alternate School came  reluctantly along to accompany the songs and got so entranced that he stayed to  accompany the whole show on  the piano in the manner of  the pianists in the days of  the silent movies, was called  Mr. Music, and incorporated  into the script.  I think I can be forgiven for  saying that it was a warm and  marvellous show which we  performed almost twenty  times in total in Gibsons,  Sechelt, Pender Harbour, and  on Vancouver Island. Some  local people saw it more  than a dozen times.  The Sunshine Kingdom,  as it came to be called, was  the last children's play the  Driftwood Players did and the  calendar tells us that it is  almost five years ago. It may  be time to consider another  theatrical adventure on  behalf of the children of the  Sunshine Coast.  Last fall the Liberal Party of  Canada made a calculated  guess that the popularity of  Prime Minister Trudeau's  government would rise while  that of opposition leader Joe  Clark's Conservative Party  would decline. Results of  recent popularity polls seem to  indicate that this is indeed  happening and as a result we  should expect the announcement of the long anticipated  election within the next few  weeks. A number of things  have happened in recent  months to favour Liberal  chances in a federal election,  not the least of which is a dramatic simplification of what  last year were a collection of  vague and largely spurious  election issues.  The main causes of the  brightening of Liberal prospects are psychological and  have to do with the history of  Canadian voter attitudes and  the current mood of the electorate. Canadians have shown  an historical aversion to voting for the Conservative Party.  Certainly there are some rare  instances of the Canadian  voter voting against a Liberal  government with resulting  brief moments of success for  the Conservatives but examples of a positive switch of  Canadian voters to the Conservatives is rare indeed.  This is news neither to Liberals nor Conservatives. Canadian politics is run on the  assumption that the country  has a one party system.  The current mood of the  electorate also favours the  Liberals. The anger, suspicion  and lack of comprehension  which accompanied last  year's many indicators of  economic    weakness    have  Night on the downland  Night Is on the downland, on Ihe lonely moorland,  On the hills where the wind goes over sheep-bitten  turf,  Where the bent grass beats upon the unplowed  poorland  And the pine-woods roar like the surf.  Here the Roman lived on Ihe wind-barren lonely,  Dark now and haunted by the moorland fowl;  None comes here now but the peewit only,  And moth-like death In the owl.  Beauty was here on this beetle-droning downland;  The thought of a Caesar In the purple came  From the palace by the Tiber in the Roman townland  To this wind-swept hill with no name.  Lonely Beauty came here and was here in sadness,  Brave as a thought on the frontier ot the mind,  In the camp of the wild upon the march of madness,  The bright-eyed Queen of the Blind.  Now where Beauty was are  the  wind-withered  j gorses,  Moaning like old men In the hill-wind's blast;  The flying sky is dark with running horses,  And the night is full of the past  sJohn Masetield  finally sunk into the collective consciousness of the  Canadian people. The first  reaction was to blame the  government's ineffective  monetary and fiscal policy for  inflation, unemployment and  the decline in the value of the  Canadian dollar. Now there is  the beginning of the realization that these problems are  the result of a profound  malaise in both national and  international economies.  The Canadian voter is skepti-  cai, suspicious and, above all,  careful; the likelihood of his  trusting His welfare to untried  managers is extremely  remote.  The current unhealthy state  of the economy and its bleak  future outlook may indeed be  in part due to government  bungling but things have  gone far beyond. the finger  pointing stage and the Canadian voter, looking out for his  own self interest, will reelect the Liberals, even  though it is reasonable to  expect a minority government. And don't think for a  moment that Liberal campaign  strategists meeting last  fall were unaware of this  Quirk of insecurity in the  electorate. The decision to  postpone an election was not  made on a whim; these  men have been governing us  most of our lives, for that  matter most of the life of the  country; they know us better  than we know ourselves.  While psychology and history favour a Liberal victory,  the firming up of previously  unclear election issues is  also working to their advantage. Last year the Liberals  tried to pass off the question of repatriating the Constitution as an election issue.  Subsequent events have  shown that it is little more  than an attempt by the Prime  Minister to have himself  permanently entombed In  Canadian history books as, if  not a father of his country,  at least an uncle. Even  though he appears to have  convinced the premiers  that they can be god-parents  of our country, the issue has  not caught on as being a  bread and butter plank in  anyone's election platform.  This is not to say that the  Constitution is not important,  but as an election issue, it  will be no more than window  dressing.  On the other hand what  appeared to be a relatively  unimportant issue last year  has emerged as a more significant force. The'problem of  national unity has gamed new  credibility both within Quebec  and throughout the country.  It is now left to the leaders of  the respective parties to clarify and articulate the issue to  the   people.   None   of   the  mm^mmmmaa Coast News, February 13,1979  Letters to the Editor  New and Old Testaments  Editor:  Let me say thank you for  your article in 'Musings'  in which you comment on  religious philosophy.  Your thoughts interested  me greatly, as you formulate  a code to live by, which is  responsible and intelligent,  as you honestly see it. You  seem to be evaluating the religion of the Old Testament  as portrayed by the prophets  and seers of those days  and you compare that with the  religion of the much later  New Testament writers. You  seem to opt for the New  Testament.  May I offer a few comments  on this subject, which you  have raised, and which,  incidentally, is of wide interest?  More off thc same  Editor:  John Burnside's article in  the Coast News of February 6  was most intriguing, and I  wish to make a comment or  two on its context.  I always feel sort of sad for  those who were brought up  in the shadow of an "angry  God". The Fundamentalists  were prone to teach the Scriptures in this manner, atid in  doing so, left a legacy of  false impressions on the  minds of their adherents.  I prefer militant Christianity  to dogmatic fanaticism.  I do agree with John however that there are many passages in the Hebrew Scriptures which give evidence of  a harse and sometimes avenging God; but there are just as  many stories of his compassion  and  concern   for   his  Chosen People, the Israelites.  Whenever we are faced with  an angry God, it is wise to  seek out the cause of his  anger. We should not overlook the many times his Chosen People failed to recognize him as their great benefactor. They did not always  honour his name. They were  not always grateful for his  generosity. If earthly kings  treated their subjects brutally for being rebellious and  intransigent, why should we  wonder that the Creator and  Lord of the human race would  look less kindly on his ungrateful subjects?  Christians often look more  to the message of the New  Testament, ignoring the  basic laws proposed in the'  Hebrew Scriptures. However,  Slings and arrows(cont'd)  leaders has yet been able to  give this issue, meaning and  significance and if this remains the case it will not have  importance outside of Quebec.  The other major issues ���  unemployment, inflation,  labour unrest, and the decline of the Canadian dollar ���  have all become submerged  in the issue of the management of the economy. Try as  they may the Conservatives or  the New Democratic Party will  not be able to isolate these  problems from the larger one  of economic management.  This will of course work to  their disadvantage and when  it comes to a choice of managers for a shaky economy, the  Canadian people are unlikely  to abandon the Liberals.  The election, coming when  it does, is anti-climactic.  It will be an uninspiring  affair with few new ideas put  forward. National enthusiasm  will not be roused and the  voter turn-out will be low;  and when it's all over things  will be much the same as  they were before.  The Old Testament and the  New Testament cannot be  taken separately. The one is  the foundation for the other.  Of course, it is understandable that we would like to  dwell in a pleasant dream and  clasp closely the tender loving concept of Jesus overlooking everything. As I see  it, Christ was implicit, that  pardon is free to us ��� every-  we dare not overlook the Impact of the Ten Commandments on the conduct of our  daily lives. I am quite certain  that if man was to base his  government of his world  solely on the precepts of the  Ten Commandments, he  would require neither armies  nor police to uphold and  protect his interests. Add to  the "Ten" the one great law  which Christ gave: "Love  your neighbour", and mankind would have the complete  and perfect formula for a  happy and constructive  social environment.  Certainly, the "Beatitudes" are one of the Scripture's great features...but  without the reins on his human emotions which the Ten  Commandments provide...  man would still not recognize his responsibilities to  society, or his total dependence on his Creator.

Editor's Note: Taken from  the book Western Windows ���  A Comparative Anthology of  Poetry In British Colombia,  Patricia M.Ellis  Supervising  Editor.  Logging might not at first  glance, seem a particularly  fruitful source-area for serious  poetry. It has traditionally  heen a noisy, brutal, hard-  headed trade, practised for  the most part by men considerably longer on muscle  lhan book-learning and prone  to be distrustful of anything  more aesthetic than a western  paperback or a skin magazine.  Thc reading-matter beside  the average bunkhouse bed  would be apt to consist of  such undemanding fare and  I have met numerous loggers  who didn't ��� or couldn't ���  read at all. If by some off-  chance, a book of poetry were  to be found around a logging-  camp,   it   would   either   be  Robert W.Service or his  woods equivalent, Robert E.  Swanson.  Swanson, now head of the  B.C. Provincial Railways  Department, published in the  nineteen-forties, three volumes of logging verse:  Rhymes of a Western Logger, Rhymes of a Lumber-  Jack and Bunkhouse Ballads.  They enjoyed considerable  popularity at the time and  Western Logger went into  more than ten editions. The  poems arc written in an unsophisticated, straight-ahead  style that many academics  would dismiss as doggerel.  But despite their antiquated  form, the poems have a good  deal going for them. The  best are laced with sweat-  salty drive, bawdy humour  and an honest sense of nostalgia for the vanished hey-  Valentine^ Day/^7  LIVE ENTERTAINMENT  Irom a p.m.���12 Midnight  .."CONNECTION"  PROCEEDS FROM THE TAPS  GO TO THE��ARIETY CLUB TELETHON  K\)t Cebar* 3ton  886-9815  dey of steampots, wooden  spartrees and tough-as-hell  tame-apes. They impressed  me greatly as a boy and despite their many limitations, I  still derive enjoyment from  them. Actually, they are more  songs than poems and many  in fact have been set to music  and recorded by a group  known appropriately enough  as The Tome Ape*.  Swanson's late brother,  George also wrote Service-  type verse about the woods  under his nickname Seattle  Red. These poems were published in the same series  with the title Rhymes of a  Haywire Hooker. The book  also contains a few of Bob  Swanson's poems left over  from the earlier volumes.  Unlike his brother whose  involvement with steam locomotives took him far from the  logging-camps in later years,  George Swanson was apparently a career-logger all his  life. This deeper involvement  with the gut subject-matter is  reflected in his poems which  are less-generalized and have  an autobiographical ring.  My friend David Day while  searching through the special  books section at the University  of Victoria, unearthed another  woodspoet by the name of  George McGinnis, hitherto unknown to either of us.  His book The Saga of the  Westcoast Loggers, had been  published privately as recently as nineteen sixty-eight  but the poems covered a  vast span of time, the earliest dating back to the turn of  the century. We were both  impressed by a number of  the poems. The title piece in  particular is an overview of  great sweep and power. McGinnis also employed rhyme  and meter but more imaginatively and with a truer grasp  of style than his fellow balia-  deers. FrUstratingly, the obscure edition  contained  no  biographical information  whatsoever on McGinnis. A  bit of literary detective work  coupled with sheer luck, led  us to a small house in the  Kitsilano area of Vancouver  where we met for several  hours with the remarkable old  logger, still clear-headed in  his hundredth year. A detailed  account of this fascinating  visit will appear in an upcoming issue of Sound Heritage magazine.  Both Swanson and McGinnis have poems about the legendary woods-character,  Rough House Pete Olesen  that serve to demonstrate  their difference in approach.  Swanson's poem, still one of  my favourites, is a roaring  melodramatic portrayal of a  larger-than-life, almost  Bunyanesque brawler. He  punches his way indomitably  through a booze-drenched  career and literally dies with  his caulkboots on in a skidroad  flophouse. This fictional demise was concocted strictly  for dramatic effect. In actual  fact, Olesen fell off the old  Union Steamship dock while  drunk and was drowned.  McGinnis' version is less-  flamboyant but much closer to  reality. He depicts Olesen,  whom he knew personally, as  an indifferent logger and a  bully. He was jealous of his  reputation and maintained it  for the most party by squa-  ring-off with smaller weaker  men he knew he could beat.  Despite this precaution, he  frequently bit off more than he  could chew and ended up  flat on his back. "He was  strong as a bull and  twice as ignorant I" This penchant for honesty is characteristic of McGinnis' work.

Among  the remarks were such comments as "Technically exquisite" and "Incredible".  A couple of viewers found the  sound track too loud, and a  member has volunteered to  monitor the sound level and  report to the projectionist  when adjustment is needed.  There is good news, too, on  programme booking, and I  think the schedule for the  next few weeks contains as  outstanding a selection of  varied films as the Society  has ever offered. The Kwahtahmoss Film Society now has  over two hundred members  and the film selection committee hopes there will be for  most of them some favourite  titles among these selections  as well as new films to discover. The schedule is as  follows: Tuesday, February  13, Fellini's 8'/>; Tuesday,  February 27, Mr. Hulot's  Holiday, Tuesday, March 13,  Becket; Tuesday, March 27,  Truffaut's Sniall Change,  Tuesday, April 10, Renais'  Providence.  I am particularly delighted  finally to have secured bookings for the Jaques Tati  film, Mr. HiM'f Holiday, and  for Providence which is notable among other things for  a spellbinding performance  from John Gielgud as a dying  alcoholic writer living in the  midst of his family and trying  to finish his last novel.  People who were film  society members in 1973 and  1974 may remember Jaques  Tati's Traffic which was  shown here. At that time, I  was unable to book any other  Tati films since Mr. Tati  had withdrawn the distribution rights. The films were re-  released only last year. Mr.  jiTati is a craftsman and an  eclectic artist. In almost thirty  years, he has made but seven  films. If you've never seen  Tati, you owe it to yourself  to see this wonderful artist,  a perfectionist in the best  sense of the word. Those who  already have seen Tati know,  and  many are looking for  ward to seeing him again.  Jaques Tati came to the  cinema from the music  hall where he entertained with  a series of sporting mine. His  early interest was in sport,  particularly rugby, which he  played for the Racing Club  de France. He has stated:  "What is demanded above  all from a comic actor is a  training in sport." His films  are conceived in visual terms  and are virtually without  dialogue. Tati's Monsieur  Hulot is as original a creation  as we Chaplin's Tramp or  Marcel Marceau's Bip. His  style, however, is much different. He has said: "Take,  for instance, the scene in the  cemetery, the wreath with the  dead leaves, Hulot just wanted to take out his car tire,  and without his doing anything about it, the leaves  stick to it and it makes a  wreath. If this had happened  to Chaplin, he would have  deliberately put the leaves  on the tire, in order to transform it into a wreath and thus  be able to leave the cemetery  decently. Hulot does not get  out, he stays until the end,  shakes hands with everybody."  John Marion was asking  me this week how I had become interested in films, and  I realized that my real interest  hearkens back to the time,  more than twenty-five years  ago, when I saw Jaques  Tati's first feature film,  Jour de Fete, at the Continental Cinema in Wallasey.  The cinema, which I'm sure  my friend Madoc-Jones will  remember, played films of  operas, but the Tati film was  the first non-operatic film  I'd seen which was other  than British or American, and  I became aware of a whole  new world of artistic endeavour. It was not until 1972,  however, at Ray Boothroyd's  suggestion, that I became  actively engaged in the film  society movement. Since that  time, the Kwahtahmoss Film  Society has programmed well  in excess of a hundred feature length films and numerous shorter films, As stated  earlier, I consider the present  schedule to be second to none,  and I hope that many of our  members will enjoy several of  the outstanding films included  in the schedule for the next  two months.  ���������� >����IH'  By Rae Ellingham  Week commencing: Feb. 12.

Like  everything else, my reading  taste tends to go through  phases, so after reading Slavo-  mir Rawicz's Th* Long Walt  I was ready for more of the  same. On the shelves I found,  purchased on some long-ago  spree, an unopened copy of  the Anabasis of Xenophon. It  may sound like something on  the menu of a Greek restaurant, but it translates as The  Persian Expedition and it's  not only an exciting tale of  survival against fantastic  odds, but a significant historical document as well.  The story, briefly, begins in  401 B.C. The Pelopennesian  War between Athens & Sparta  for the domination of the  Greek peninsula has ended  with the power of Athens  broken and the Spartans firmly in control. Xenophon, born  into the aristocratic, antidemocratic strata of Athenian  society, having seen service in  the war, finds himself unemployed, disenchanted with the  government of Athens, whose  follies include the farcical  trial and tragic execution of  his teacher, Socrates, and sets  off to make his fortune elsewhere.  In those times, the greatest  opportunity for young men  with political and military  experience lay in the camp of  Cyrus, Prince of Persia.  Cyrus' older brother Artaxer-  xes II had recently acceded  to the throne, but there were  many within the Empire who  felt that the personable young  prince was better equipped to  rule. Cyrus also had valuable  allies in the Spartans, who  were indebted to him for subsidies which had aided their  victory over the Athenians. In  addition, Greece contained  large numbers of trained and  experienced soldiers who were  unemployed and had good  reasons for not wanting to  live under Spartan rule. Cyrus  possessed great personal  magnetism and numerous  sycophants, many of them  disaffected Greeks, attached  themselves to his retinue  in the hope that they might  profit by his famous generosity.  In secret, Cyrus assembled  three Greek armies in Greece  itself, then transferred them  tactics had thwarted two  previous Persian attempts to  Invade Greece, were able to  march halfway across the empire unopposed to within  striking distance of the capital  at Babylon. There on the  battlefield of Cunaxa the King  was at last able to marshal his  enormous army. Cyrus had  been right about one thing; for  all its infinite manpower, the  disorganized imperial army  couldn't stand up to a few  disciplined Greeks. Unfortunately his judgement  wasn't always so sound and he  foolishly led a cavalry charge  against the King's bodyguard,  who took advantage of the  opportunity to make shish  kebob of him, thus ending a  brilliant career and putting  the Greeks In the embarrassing position of having won  the battle and lost the war.  Deserted by their native  allies, including their cavalry,  the Greeks had two choices:  emissaries of the King had  invited them to lay down their  arms and await his decision  concerning their disposition  (an uncertain fate at best), or  they could attempt to fight  their way home across the  whole empire, surrounded by  hostile subjects of the King,  dogged by his armies every  step of the way. Reluctant to  surrender to an enemy they  had defeated in battle, the  Greeks decided to trust In  their arms and so they began  their march into history.  An initial truce with the Persians which ended in the treacherous capture of the Greek  generals nearly sealed their  fate from the outset, but  Xenophon, whose part in the  drama has been small up to  this point, rallies the troops,  is elected general and is, by  his own account, largely responsible for their survival.  Modest he is not. He leads the  Greeks on a gruelling march of  several thousand miles, into  the mountains of Armenia to  escape the King's amies, but  where they must deal with  terrible winter conditions,  near impassable terrain, and  a succession of hostile tribes,  some of whom, like the Kurds,  are unsubdued to this day.  Finally, whittled down to eight  thousand by cold, exhaustion,  starvation and ceaseless  fighting, the army struggles  up a ridge, expecting to find  one more range of mountains  and another forest of waiting  spears; instead there is a  commotion in the vanguard  and a shout goes up, "The  seal The seal"  But even having reached  the relative safety of the Greek  colony cities on the Black  Sea, the troubles of the Ten  Thousand were not over. The  Greek cities were terrified by  the approach of a mercenary  army, Greek or not, who  owed no allegiance to anyone  but their commanders. Rumours that Xenophon had  ambitions to use the men to  found an independent city in  their midst appalled them.  Everything, not always short  of armed force, was done to  make them feel that they  should move along. When the  army stated its Intention to  cross the Hellespont into  mainland Greece, the Spartans themselves had to sit up  and take notice. The army was  in large part made up of men  who had no cause to love Sparta and they were generalled  by a man from Sparta's archrival, Athens. Ihe situation  was gradually defused; Xenophon was relieved of command, though he returned  years later to command elements of the original Ten  Thousand who were still under  arms, earning their drachma  a month policing the wild  tribesmen of northern Greece,  Though the Ten Thousand  were accorded less than a  hero's welcome at the time,  the effects of their epic march  to freedom were far-reaching.  The story of their adventure  served as an Inspiration to  Greeks for years to come,  including a young Macedonian  prince named Alexander.  Previously the Greeks had  only defeated the Persians  when they came as invaders;  the Ten Thousand demonstrated that a small number of  Greeks was superior to any  number of "barbarians",  even on their own ground.  Without their example Alexander the Great would never  have been able to get anyone  to take seriously, let alone  fulfill, his dream of conquering Persia. So Ten Thousand  mercenaries who only wanted  to go home helped change the  face of civilization. Their  story, once accessible only  to those prepared to tangle  with ancient Greek, fe now  available in an excellent  translation by Rex Warner,  thanks to Penguin Books.

She warmly welcomed five  new members to the Auxiliary ��� Mrs. Lela Comrie,  Mrs. Bobie Johnson, Mrs.  Marjorie Leslie, Mrs. Jean  Roberts and Mrs. Peggy Le-  Warne. It is of Interest to  note that Mrs. LeWarne has  been knitting for the Auxiliary for a number of years,  and we are most happy to have  her as a member as well.  Reports were read by the  Chairmen of the Volunteer  Committees for the month  of January: Sick Committee,  three get-well cards were  sent to members on the sick  list; Gift Shop, eight volunteers worked thirty-two  hours; Thrift Shop, nine volunteers   worked   thirty-two  and one half hours; Physiotherapy Unit, four volunteers  worked twenty-nine hours;  Knitting, seven baby sets  were knitted by Mrs. Strandt  and Mrs. Jones respectively  and turned in to the Gift  Shop; Extended Care Unit,  six volunteers worked eighteen hours.

It was in  this cosy relaxed atmosphere  that the meeting continued  and we enjoyed the singing,  good fellowship and sharing in  Christian love.  Our guest speaker was  Bobbie Hallett and she inspired us all with her message  on "knowing Jesus". Bobbie,  who is vice-president on our  Area Board came from the  Delta area to visit us. So far  we have been very fortunate  in the speakers we have had  at our meetings; all of them  have had testimonies and  messages that we could identify with and we have been  greatly blessed by them.  This fellowship had its  beginnings simultaneously  in Seattle, Washington and  Victoria, B.C. and has grown  rapidly in a few short years  to what is now an international  organization. We are indeed  privileged to have a branch  here on the Sunshine Coast  and to be a part of a fellowship where the accent is on  today's woman and geared to  the kind of situations, problems and difficulties that  women are faced with.  Our meetings take place  at Harmony Hall on the third  Tuesday of the month. The  next one falls on February  20. Natalia Stasiak will be our  guest speaker that day.

Coast News, February 13,1979.  Come  Ann Napier  Write Box 3, c/o Coaat News  Dear Ann:  I've been reading about the  contaminates in our drinking  water and seing programmes  on the T.V. It goes so far that  our house plants can grow ill,  even die from these additives to our water. The municipalities trying to combat this  condition have poured more  and more chlorine into their  systems ��� while the chlorine  kills many bacteria, it also  links with certain chemicals  to form new substances and  by its own addition has made  tap water increasingly hazardous to house plants.  1 imagine it is carcinogenic  to humans, but killing the  plan's will probably wake  more people up ��� filtering  can help, or catch rain water  for the plants. Alarmed  Dear Alarmed:  Me too ��� If something is  unseen few people worry.  Sprays and additives to our  with  me  cry   water are increasing. Even the  automobile exhaust has  carcinogenic fallout to our  breathing and water systems.  We have to become aware to  do anything about it. Rainwater for plants sounds reasonable but if one has a large  garden, as in the California  nurseries where they have  filtered and stored water to  raise their plants, when you  buy a plant and it doesn't  thrive, or it dies, there is one  possibility. I have often  smelted the chlorine when I  raised a glass to my lips ���  the ansewr is a filter. Filters  are charcoal and inexpensive.  Dear Ann:  I am in my twenties. I have  been going with a man I  hope to marry. We have been  engaged for three years. I  would like to get married, he  is so nice ��� very neat and  punctual. We have been intimate ever since we were engaged. My mother says that is  why he proposed ��� to get  bed privileges. She doesn't  think he intends to marry me.  I, too, have begun to wonder,  as no date is set and he always has new goals to attain  before he is ready to set the  date. Mainly saving money.  Anyway, do you think he is  stringing me along and will  later throw me away like a  squeezed lemon? Wary  Dear Wary:  Not wary enough ��� usually  the man is the one that wants  to clinch the deal. Get married  and stash his prize ��� brand  her so no poachers can get  near. He's Mr. Cool, because  he's either stringing you along  or he's too sure of you. If  you are at his beck and call  but he has the rest of his time  and money to himself,  why should he marry? That's  what this generation of men  found out ��� that with a light  commitment they could have  their cake and eat it too.  You might suggest that you  both date others for a while  and when he makes up his  mind you will rethink it. If  he loves you, he'll snap to, if  not he won't make much of a  protest. The younger you find  out his intentions the better ���  if you have to get over him,  the sooner you start, the sooner you will be free to start  over. C'est La Guerre! I  Dear Ann:  We have been married for  seven years. I want to take a  separate vacation. My friends  seem to disapprove and my  husband is doubtful. It means  so much to me to have a few  days of freedom ��� not to  go out with someone else or  take part in any particular  activity ��� just to be with  myself, to do as I please.  Dear Weary: Weary  1 think it is a valid desire.  At first we can't bear to be  separated a day. Then a marriage reaches the point where  you feel that to renew your  energy and perspective you  would like to take a time  for yourself. I think it is fine.  Autonomy is something we all  need. The more people you  love and live with, the less  autonomy one has. Go somewhere and have a free-from-  concern-time.

Pender pool report  By Shirley Vader  The Pender Harbour Aquatic Committee, upon encouragement from the School  Board, the Regional Director  and many Pender residents,  is redoubling its efforts to  complete the Pender Pool.  The cancellation of the  Regional Recreation Refen-  dum in November, 1978, has  instigated the committee  to finish the pool through local  initiative. The Aquatic Committee is in the process of  forming a society and has obtained a much lower estimate  for the completion of the pool.  The construction cost has  dropped from $365,000  originally, to $175,000 to finish the pool through the use  of local contractors. Of that  amount, the community's  share would be $103,000 as  we are eligible for a 1/3  provincial grant.  The Aquatic Committee  greatly appreciates Regional  Director  Harrison's   support  we must deal wisely with it  now. To help achieve this end,  the committee submitted the  reduced cost estimate to the  Regional Board and a by-law  was prepared for a specified  area referendurn. To construct and operate the pool,  a by-law was drawn up for  2.21 mills for Area A. The bylaw was unanimously approved by the Regional Board  and awaits approval from  Victoria before it can be  voted on by the community.  The committee hopes the referendum can be held by  April, 1979.  The Aquatic Committee  has approached the School  Board for their approval to  finish the pool by local initiative in order to greatly reduce  costs of the facility. We would  like to commend the School  Board for their co-operation on  this project. Our community  is fortunate to have such a  progressive thinking School  Board that realizes the importance of recreation for all  ages at a common  facility.  THE  i  i  ICE  CUTTER!

The need  for recreation in the area will The advantages to the com-  not disappear in the future W muriity   for  having   a  joint    facility      are      numerous.  For example, it brings children and adults in better contact, the taxpayers are already  paying for the school which  can now be used by everyone,  the costs of the pool are  greatly reduced as it is contained in a building that is  already heated and maintained, & the community has  its own entrance so that the  facility can be utilized entirely  independent of the school  even during school hours.  a  ^v\  ir AM/FM Radios  ���d Tape Decks  ���ir Stereos  irT.V.'s  ir Consols  ���k Speed Queen &  Gibsons Appliances  ir Records & Tapes  ���ir Speakers  ^ Wallpaper  it Dishwashers  ir Microwave Ovens  ���tr Kitchen Cabinets  ir Vanities  ir Dining &  Bedroom Suites  a- Mirrors  ir Lamps  ir Carpets  ir Drapes  irLIno  ir Ceramic Tiles  ir Sofa, Chairs,  Love Seats  Sunshine Coast  Fitness & Recreation  Service  885-5440  The present plans for the  pool include a twenty-meter  pool and a hydrotherapy  pool, men's and ladies'  change rooms, office and first  aid area, and lobby for watching pool activities. It was  decided to maintain the hydrotherapy pool in the plans  to encourage residents to use  the facility to benefit their  health. However, the committee did decide to delete  the sauna from the facility to  cut capital and operating expenses. It must be emphasized that the Aquatic Committee is cutting any unnecessary expense from the facility. Because the area under  the gymnasium where the pool  is located is so large and it  would be costly to finish all  available space, there will be  a certain amount of unfinished  space. There have been no  plans made by the Aquatic  Committee at this time for  use of this unfinished area.  Our only concern at the present is to finish the actual  pool and hydrotherapy pool  with the least possible expense to the community.  The committee has not yet  met with any groups to discuss the new developments of  the pool. We would like to  meet with active groups such  as the Senior Citizens, Lions  Club, Legion, and other resident groups in the future  to discuss activities and programming at the pool. The  Aquatic Committee is presently investigating further funds  which may be available to the  community. Please understand there are many bridges  to cross but we feel we are off  to a good start once more.  We urge you to continue to  support this project and if any  person or group can contribute to the project please  contact us.

Press responsibility  By Maryanne West  The case of the Powell River paper and the Ferry Corporation has figured in the  news recently. You'll remember the editor quoted a source  (presumably the usual reliable  variety) which alleged that the  Captain was not on the  bridge when the ferry hit the  Saltery Bay dock last September. Summonsed to attend  an Arbitration Hearing the  editor refused to reveal her  sources and was subsequently  brought before the B.C.  Court of Appeal to face contempt of court proceedings.  Freedom of the press has  become one of the bulwarks of  western democracy and as a  natural corollary the unwritten  law that journalists, like lawyers and priests, can protect  those who confide in them.  The mark of a journalist's  professional integrity is that  his word can be trusted. When  you tell him something "off  the record" it will stay that  way. M  If you stop to think about it,  that's how it has to be. How  else would anyone come forward with information?  This unwritten code of honour also includes the publisher  of the newspaper. It is self-  understood that the publisher  will stand by and support the  journalists in his employ. This  is necessary insurance against  high level pressure being  exerted against the little  guy. When Allan Fothering-  ham is brought into court to  justify his comments he  doesn't go alone, he is supported by Sun Publishing Company. If Katherine Graham,  publisher of the Washington Post, had not had the courage to support reporters  Bernstein and Woodward in  the face of incredible establishment pressure the contemporary history of the U.S.  could be quite different.  While I'm not suggesting  there is any parallel with  Watergate in this Powell  River story, it is something of  a shocker to learn that the  publisher of the Powell River News refuses to support his  editor.  He is reported to have said  that he admired her stand, but  that if she was going to break  the law she was on her own.  To be fair to the gentleman (though you may think  that term in its usual sense  doesn't apply) he is not a  newspaperman with long  experience in the business,  but one who has chosen to  invest in a number of community newspapers in B.C.  although he lives and works in  Winnipeg, and thus he may  not understand the full consequences of his refusal.  It is this apparent lack of  any understanding of the role  of a community newspaper  and the responsibility of the  publisher and his staff to the  community it serves, which in  turn supports them, which  concerns me.  It is of course a free country  and there are no legal restrictions on absentee publishers, although the recent  Davey Report drew particular attention to the dangers to  democracy in the change from  home-owned newspapers  which was obviously the developing trend.  Especially in small communities, a newspaper is so  much more than just a commodity, a fact sheet with information on weekly shopping  specials, the court news and  the reports of Council meetings. At its best it becomes a  reflection of the many facets of  the society it serves, of its  shared joys and sorrows; of  its aspirations, its hopes and  fears; a vehicle for a continuing dialogue and sharing  of talents; in a very real way  the heartbeat of the community.

Inevitably, the boss  sets the standard for the other  employees. If he doesn't  care about the community he  serves ��� that will eventually  be reflected in the product.  The turnover in staff will be  high because those with high  ideals will soon find the lack of  support and interest in what  they do to be a burden and  look for a happier posting.  The newspaper business is  in many ways a tight little  world of its own, and our  Winnipeg friend's action, or  lack of it, will not go unnoticed and more than likely  will result in his papers  being blacklisted. Which will  mean of course that he will  not be able to attract the  highest calibre of journalists  when he finds himself with  staff vacancies.  Seemingly this is of no  great concern to him.

Care of Horses  By Carmen Peters  Did you know that a horse  weighing anywhere from  500 to 1,200 pounds will  drink four to five gallons of  water per day? It seems that  a lot of people would like to  have a horse, or they already  have one, but they really  don't realize what they're  getting themselves into.  For those who haven't  bought your horse ��� perhaps  you should think over a few  questions so that you will  have an idea of what you want,  l.Will I be riding for pleasure or show? If you ride for  my need for a beginner's  horse? If you feel that you  can't handle an excitable  horse or one that needs to  know who's boss, then you  should have a horse that's  even-tempered and does what  is asked of him.  Minor  hockey  Another excellent weekend  of exhibition hockey games  has been witnessed with  teams from Squamish.  Our Elson Glass Juveniles  lost a close 4-2 decision to the  Squamish Midget Rep club.  pleasure, you probably want a On Sunday our own Midget  horse that is well-mannered Rangers defeated this same  and   already   trained.   For  a   person   who   wants   to  show, you probably want a  horse that is well-mannered  and   already   trained.   For  people who want to show  their horse, they too should  have a well-mannered horse,  but  maybe  not  completely  trained.  A  show  horse  is  never really finished training.  A horse that is willing and  doesn't fight back is good for  showing.  2. Do I want to feed local  or alfalfa hay? Each horse is  different. Some horses get too  much protein with alfalfa, so  instead, you could feed local  or even timothy. Timothy  hay is not as readily available as local or alfalfa. The  reason being mainly because  it is cut only once a year.  Whereas local and alfalfa  are cut twice a year.  3. How much money do I  want to put out? The average  cost of a pleasure trained  horse is $500. You should be  able to get a well-mannered  sound horse for that price.  4. Do I have a vet I can  trust? Each year a horse  should have at least a tetanus  shot and tube worming. It  helps if you have a vet that  you can call and talk over a  problem with and perhaps  save his time should it not be  serious enough for him to  handle. If you carry a good  medicine chest for your horse,  quite often you can look after  cuts and scrapes without the  vet.  5. Am I experienced  enough in handling the horse  or should I be sure to express  team 4-3 in an excellent game  which saw the tying and  winning goals scored in the  last two ininutes of play. All  who played and watched  Squamish were impressed  with their on and off the ice  performance. A really nice  group of fellows.  This past weekend saw two  teams down from Powell River, scores and results available for next week.  litis weekend has just two  exhibitions, with our Midget  Rangers travelling to Squamish for a rematch of their  exciting 4-3 game. While  Squamish will send over a  Midget-Juvenile house team  on the Sunday to play our  Tyee Flyers.

Grace Chamberlin tribute  By F.Ross Gibson  On February 2, 1979,  Gibsons lost one of its true  pioneers in the person of  Grace Chamberlin. The first  white child born in Gibsons,  she lived her entire life on the  Sunshine Coast.  Grace was the third eldest  child of the late George and  Mary Glassford, and grand  daughter of the founder of  Gibsons Landing,  Often Grace would tell of  the experiences she encountered while growing up in  the Gibsons area. The Glassford family owned the property which is now Granthams  Landing and the family  lived in a clearing at the  mouth of Soames Creek. The  property was sold by Mr.  Glassford to Mr. Grantham  and the Glassfords moved  back to Ontario. Grace remained in Gibsons where she  and her husband, the late  Clare Chamberlin, had home-  steaded on ten acres on what  is now the Chamberlin Road.  The ten acres was a wedding  gift to Grace and Clare from  her father.  A house was built on the  property by the late Karl  Willander, the father of Willie Willander, presently residing on Galiano Island. The  house was destroyed by fire  a number of years ago. The  clearing produced a wonderful garden and much hard  work. The Clare Chamberlin  family ��� Pearle, Hazel,  Nina and Cecil ��� grew up  there.  The years passed and  during the war years (WW2)  Grace and Clare moved to  Halfmoon Bay but in a few  years returned to Gibsons  where they cleared land and  built a home next to the bowling alley. Here Grace and  Clare enjoyed retirement  years,    fishing,    gardening  Court news  At the Provincial Court  held in Sechelt on February 7,  Raymond Beadle was found  guilty of refusing to take a  breathalizer test and fined  $500 plus six months probation.  For being in possession of  liquor while still a minor,  David Kelly received a  $100 fine.  On a hit and run charge,  Gregory Hills was given a  two year suspended sentence.  His driver's license was also  suspended and he was ordered to make restitution ���  the replacement of a fire  hydrant, For causing a disturbance, he was given fourteen days in Oakalla and  one year probation.  Jamie Little was fined  $50 on a hit and run charg  CARSANDTRUCKS  Rental���Leasing  ���Also-  Domestic and  Industrial  Equipment  Seaside Rentals  885-2848  and being good citizens, an  asset to the whole community.  Community spirit was  number 1 in Grace's mind. At  school sports day, she could  be found behind the lunch  counter or cheering on the  sidelines. Grace was a lover of  sports and the great out-of-  doors. She enjoyed badminton and never missed a basketball or baseball game.  Grace was a charter member  of the local Women's Institute, Whenever anyone needed help Grace was always  there and I am sure many  confided in her as I did knowing she would never reveal  what she knew.  Over the years Grace knew  sorrow and a great deal of  happiness, and enjoyed a full  life to the end. As I pen these  lines I recall many interesting  stories she told me of early  Gibsons Landing, of the In  dians, Chinese and the flume  on the side of Mount Elphinstone. My visits were well  rewarded.  Years passed but I kept in  close touch with Gracer she  was an ardent writer of letters. Age crippled her hands  and feet but she kept her  keen sense of humour and  bright outlook on life in  general.  Two months ago I enjoyed  tea and cake in her home on  Reed Road and when I said  goodbye her usual happy  voice said, "Come again  soon". She stood frail and  feeble on the doorstep as she  waved goodbye.  I could write much more  about Grace but it is nice to  think we might have a few  secrets or an interesting  story to tell at some later  date. I loved Grace, you see;  she was my Aunt.  Editor:  I am shocked and amazed at  Fran Berger ("More of us are  active". Coast News, February 6).  Male Coast Newspersons  have occasionally been known  to make tasteless remarks  or omissions (tongue-in-  cheek, of course) about the  place of women in society, but  our Feminine Fitness Freak?  Eekl  Ms Berger, tsk, tskl Hurrah  indeed for Malibu Man, and it  is true that most of the athletic laurels of the put have  gone to Golden Gods and  Supermen of the masculine  gender, but where were  your words of praise for  Malibu Woman? She's come a  long way, babyl Since preschool she was discouraged  from vigourous activity, her  high school physical education  teacher humiliated her, and  she learned to think it enhanced her femininity to be as  helpless in athletics as in any  other physical endeavour.  Malibu Woman and her  sisters are now out there ���  with the men ��� jogging,  swimming, cycling, crosscountry skiing, limbering up  with yoga, even aerobic  dancing! Peninsula Woman,  along with legions elsewhere,  is turning out for TEAM  SPORTS: volleyball, softball,  soccer, hockey. There were  rumours of rugby. (It is true  these activities are not regularly reported in the Coast  News. Perhaps the women  find their rewards elsewhere  than on the sports page?)  As for the boom being in  sports and not in babies,  women today are doing both!  Recent articles tell us of women competing into their  seventh, eighth and ninth  months of pregnancy in running, tennis, and other  sports. Comparisons are said  to be odious, and vlve la  difference....  I'm sure your intent was to  include everyone, but your  fervent words do not make  this plain: "with Ilia rise we  may once more be renewing  the struggle to bring forth and  live up to all that is best in  man." Probably an unintentional oversight, Ms B., but  more of us are active, and  some of us are female 1  Joan Robb,  Roberts Creek, B.C,  Police News of the week  The Centre's program  Many people have asked  about the Adult Day Care  Programme being held in  the Kin Hut Tuesdays and  Thursdays.

Sechelt Tax Service  Good tax news mothers  If you were one of our customers last year, you know  that I have some good news  for you in this week's column.  Even if you weren't a customer last year, take heed, and  pay attention.  What the good news is, is  that the Canadian government, bless its vote-grubbing  little heart, is going to send  each person who received a  Family Allowance cheque as  of December 1978, $200  for each child for whom a  payment was made. Of course  nothing is as straight-forward as it first appears.  There are income restrictions  and a complete set of new  forms to be filled out. However, most people living on the  Sunshine Coast who have  children will qualify for some,  if not all, of the $200 per  child payment.  Here's how it works I The  person in whose name the  Family Allowance cheque is  written (usually the woman)  was mailed a Schedule 10  in December of last year.  This form, when accompanied  by a completed income tax  return, entitles the person to  collect up to $200 per child.  Now, if the person applying  for the $200 rebate has no  income, they are still required  to file an income tax form. The  way that this is done is to  fill in the top part of page 1,  titled "Identification", put a  zero on line 60 page 4, put the  dollar amount of the child  tax credit from Schedule 10 on  line 78 page 4, then carry this  amount down to the refund  line (#79) and sign the return.  That was the simple part. The  harder part is to determine  what the child tax credit  actually is on Schedule 10.  Here is how you determine  the child tax credit on Schedule 10.1 will give you some  examples of different family  relationships; hopefully you  will be able to identify with  one of the situations. The  first is John and Mary Canuck.  They are legally married, have  three children; John's net  income in 1978 was $16,500.  Mary didn't work. Thus, line  1 of Schedule 10 reads,  three children times $200  equals $600. Mary did not  work, thus line 2 reads,  01 Line 3 is John's income,  $16,500. Line 4 is the total of  lines 2 and 3 equals $16,500.  When you subtract line 5  ($18,000) from line 4 you get a  negative number, thus you  enter a 0 on line 6. In this  instance, line 7 is also 0, so  Mary is entitled to a full  $600 child tax credit, which  she claims on her own income  tax form. Note, this credit  does not affect John's claim  for personal exemptions on  Mary and the three children,  nor does it affect his ability  to claim the Federal Tax  Reduction of $50 per child.  Fred and Ann Canuck are  legally married, have 4 children, Fred's net income is  $21,500. Ann's net income is  $8,700. Thus line 1 of Ann's  Schedule 10 reads, four children times $200 equals $800.  Line 2 is Ann's income of  $8,700. Line 3 is Fred's income of $21,500. Line 4 is the  total of lines 2 and 3 equals  $30,200. Line 6 is equal to  line 4 minus line 4 equals  $12,200. When line 6 is multiplied by 5%, line 7 equals  $610. Now subtract $610 from  line 1, which is $800. The  child tax credit is $190. Now,  Ann enters this amount on  line 78 of her income tax  return. Again, as with  John and Mary, Fred's  claim for personal exemptions  is unaffected by Ann's child  tax credit claim,  Joe and Joan Canuck are  living common-law. They have  three children. Joe made  $25,000 last year and Joan  did not work. Now, please  take note of this I Under the  existing Canadian Tax Regulations, Joe and Joan's relationship does not exist. Thus  Joe cannot claim a personal  exemption for Joan, but he  can claim the three children,  and he can also claim the $50  per child Federal Tax Credit.  But, under the regulations  for the new Child Tax Credit,  Joan can maker her claim,  without having to include  Joe's income in the calculations on her Schedule 10.  This is a minor slip-up on the  part of Ottawa which will  probably be eliminated in the  near future, but for the time  being, will benefit couples  living common-law. Joan's  Schedule 10 reads like this:  line 1 is three children times  $200 equals $600. Lines 2,3,  and 4 read 0. Lines 6 and 7  /F2B.A. BLACKTOP**  "QUALITY SERVICE SINCE 1956"  Gravel Sales ��� Grading ��� Curbs ���  Soil Cement ��� Drainage  Roads ��� Industrial Sites ��� Parking Areas  Tennis Courts ��� Driveways  885-5151  PORPOISE BAY ROAD, SECHELT  North Vancouver Oflice ��� Toll Free       Zenith - 2628  Amalgamated Consl'uclion  m\ Association  6C Road Buildors  read 0 thus line 8 reads a full  $600. Also, she does not have  to have Joe's signature on  her Schedule 10.  Sue Canuck is a divorced  lady who earned $19,400 net  in 1978. She has two children.  Her Schedule 10 goes like  this. Line 1 reads two children  times $200 equals $400.  Line 2 is $19,400. Line 3 is  0. Line 4 is $19,400. Line 6 is  $1,400. Line 7 is $1,400 times  5% equals $70. Thus her line  8 is $400 minus $70 equals  $330. Her Child Tax Credit of  $330 is entered on line 78 of  her Income Tax Return. Again  this credit does not affect her  Personal Exemptions or her  Federal Tax Reduction of  $50 per child.  Mary Ellen Canuk was  abandoned by her husband,  does not work, and has seven  children. Her Schedule 10  goes like this. Line 1 reads  seven children times $200  equals $1,400. Lines 2,3,4,6  and 7 are all 0. Line 8 is a  full $1,400.  There are a few people with  children on the Coast who  have too great an income to  qualify for this exemption.  An easy way to determine if  you are one of these is to add  $4,000 for each child to the  figure of $18,000. If your net  income is less than this number then you qualify for some  of the Child Tax Credit. If  it is greater, then you do not  qualify. If you have any  confusion in your mind about  whether or not you qualify,  please feel free to stop by our  office in Sechelt and we will  advise you free of charge.  Remember, the $18,000 is  net income, not your gross  earnings. There is often a  great difference in the two  figures.  Now there are a few things  which must be made clear  about claiming this tax credit.  First you most file an income  tax return to make your claim.  Second if you are married  your spouse mutt file an  income tax return, and he/she  'must sign the spouse's certification of Net Income on  Schedule 10. You must have  a Social Insurance Number.  If you do not have one you can  get an application at the local  Post Office, Unemployment  Office, or Canadian Employment Office. You must include a copy of your TFA-1  slip with your return, and you  must be the person to whom  the Family Allowance cheques  were made out. Also, you  should mail the completed  return to Surrey, not Ottawa.  This will be Sechelt Service's fourth year as your  local tax man.

S. report  By John Hind Smith  After Ron Fearn, Jamie  Dixon and Greg Miller had  finished their presentation to  the Gibsons Wildlife Club on  Wednesday, February 7  evening, the feeling of quite  a few of the audience was  expressed in the statement by  somebody that, "It's a long  time since I felt that I wouldn't  mind going back to school".  At the present time a total  of forty students a year out of  a total* of around 1,400 are  able to take part in this  programme, known officially  as the Native Environment  Studies Programme. This  situation, according to Ron  Fearn might change as time  goes on but at the moment  the whole thing is in what  might be called a probationary  period and not until the  next semester is over will it  be decided whether or not the  programme will be continued  and if so, in what form. There  didn't seem to be much doubt  in Ron's mind that this was  one of the most interesting  and challenging projects he  had ever been involved in  and I'm sure the same could  be said for both Jamie and  Greg. It seems that certain  people were worried about  dropouts and racial problems.  They need not have worried as  neither of these problems  arose.  Ron, Greg and Jamie are  assisted by Joan Marshall,  the cook who doubles as  crafts teacher (weaving,  spinning, etc.) and by Paul  Duprey who is'the maintenance and general handyman,  and also instructs the boys in  mechanical repairs. Joan is  the girl's dorm supervisor and  Jamie looks after the boys.  The safety of the students is  of primary importance in any  project such as this and of  equal importance is the responsibility which each individual is expected to accept. The  first thing they take is a course  in first aid. Simulated accidents give the opportunity  to practise what they have  learned. The correct handling  of canoes and water safety in  general is emphasized, jervis Inlet can be a pretty rough  place at times and it can also  be very beautiful. The students are taught in the Gibsons pool how to deal with  spills and how to help each  other in case of trouble. Both  Ron and Greg are qualified  instructors in canoe handling.  Talking of boats, Jamie is  responsible for getting everyone to and from camp in  M.V.Mednu but even here  the students are involved in a  learning experience. They  are taught how to navigate by  compass, how to handle the  V.H.F. radio and radar and  how to maintain the boat and  its engine.  Jamie Dixon, apart from  being what might be called  the general factotum around  camp, also teaches native  arts such as carving, and  Stephanie Read brought along  some samples of the sort of  things they do. Jamie said the  kids were so enthusiastic  about this aspect of the course  that they practised their new  found art out in the rain and  even in the dark. He told me  he was surprised to find the  white students seemed to take  to it better than their Indian  peers but that in the final  analysis Rocky Joe came away  the winner with his totem  pole.  Overnight hikes and study  of the environment and how it  relates to the students' way  of life are encouraged. Tsoh-  Nye is located in a beautiful  position and the mountains  surrounding it are accessible  by old logging roads. Self-  reliance is impressed on the  students at all times. If they  want to go fishing, hiking or  canoeing they have to file a  flight plan telling people  where they are going and what  time they estimate they are  going to return. The site  itself was made available to  the School Board by the Sechelt Indian Band and they  also provided the trailers and  set them up. The students pay  $20.00 a week for their food  but I guess that doesn't go  too far feeding a healthy  bunch of teenagers.  As one would expect in a  wilderness situation like this,  there is lots of wildlife around.  Bears were quite a problem  for a while but the secret  there was to bury the garbage and lock away all the  food. Ron told us of an interesting little occasion when  coyotes found the stock of  toilet paper and had a ball  scattering it all over the place.  The problem arose when the  camp ordered another box of  the commodity and the powers  that be wanted  a  detailed  explanation as to how such a  large amount of toilet paper  could be used in such a short  space of time by so few  people!  Academic work at the school  is not neglected and Maths  and English are regular subjects in the curriculum. Ron  told us that a total of twenty-  four subjects ranging from  Home Economics to Physical  Education, Mechanics, Navigation, and Native Studies  were covered by three teachers and their valuable helpers and they found it rather  demanding to say the least.  The twenty students (ten  boys and ten girls) equally  divided between Indian and  non-Indian, and I guess the  adults too, learned a lot from  their experiences about each  other and how to get along in a  completely new situation to all  of them. There will never be  another semester like the first  one for Ron and his staff of  stalwarts and I would think  for the most part it will be a  never-to-be-forgotten experience for the students.
