Ferry  and Marine Workers Union are.  locked in tense negotiations  with the B.C. Ferry Corporation but it seemed apparent last  week that the two sides were  some considerable distance  apart.  A vote authorizing strike  action was approved by  approximate!) 80% of the  voting union membership. This  authorizes union leaders to call  a strike with seventy-two hours  notice in the event that  negotiations presently  underway do not show  progress.  At issue are wages, shift  scheduling, overtime arrangements, arrangements for  educational leave, and several  other issues.  Some concern is expressed  locally about what is described  as inadequate staffing in the  cafeteria aboard the Queen of  New Westminster. "Where the  other  boats  coming  into  Langdale have Ave waitresses,  the Queen of New Westminster  has only two with the same  number of tables," one ex-ferry  worker told the Coast News  last week.  It was also pointed out that  with only one cook in the  kitchen quite often, with the  heavy traffic that has been  experienced, it has not been  possible for the sandwich  maker to have any break at all  during his seven and a half hour  shift.  Petition presented  No to Davis Bay pub  by Carol Berger  Mopping up operations arecarrbd on following the forest fire near Lord JimS.  The fira which began last Thursday destroyed approximately $12,000 worth  of timber before it was contained.  Water bombers contain outbreak  Twelve acres of -timber lost ~m fire  Fire claimed an estimated 12  acres of forest on August 9, one  mile off Highway 101 near  Lord Jim's Halfmoon Bay.  Air bombers contained the  fire until ground workers came  in with caterpillars after West.  Coast Airlines reported the fire  at 11:30 a.m.  Early in the fire a skidder  clearing a roadway ran out of  fuel and was soon surrounded  by fire. A tire caught fire as  three men went in to refuel the  skidder. Fortunately, an air  tanker bombed the skidder,  extinguishing the tire just as the  men moved in.  Cause of the fire is believed  to be human carelessness. The  blaze started in a cold-deck, log  pile, and then spread up the  upper ridge of the property  owned by Keith Fulton and  Alfred Harper.  According to Forest Officer  Bill Davis of the Sechelt Ranger  Station, bikers  had been seen  in the area that day.  "We're just keeping our  fingers crossed that we're lucky  for the next while. The whole  Peninsula is pretty explosive,"  Davis said.  Assisting the firefighting  were approximately 40 men on  the ground, two A-25 air  tankers, one DC-6 air tanker,  one Canso water carrier from  Pat Bay out of Victoria, three  caterpillars, and three tanker  trucks, as well as a bird dog in  the air aiding bombing of fire.  retardant and water.  The fire was brought under  control by Friday morning,  August 10, but a flaie-up at  4:30 a.m. on Saturday called  the crews back once more.  The fixed cost of the first  day's use of air tankers and  retardants, not including  ground crews and tankers, has  been set at $23,000.  An estimated $12,000 worth  of lumber was lost on the  uninsured property. Logging  operations had ceased on June  U.  No injuries occurred during  the fire but there were some  close calls with falling trees and  extreme heat on the first day.  Tankers remained on the  scene all day Saturday to begin  mop-up operations and  prevent further flare-ups. Mop-  up operations are expected to  continue for the next two  weeks.  "Would you like a pub  within a few doors of your  home?" was the question put to  Sunshine Coast Regional  Board members by C.E. Scales  at the August 9 meeting.  Approval in principle  granted to a proposal for a  Davis Bay neighborhood pub  was rescinded after Scales  appeared before the Board to  protest the approval on behalf  of eighty-seven Davis Bay  residents,  Scales presented his  "grounds for reconsideration"  saying that a neighborhood  pub would "turn Davis Bay  into a honky-tonk atmosphere....a pit stop even if the  owners do live above the  premises".  A liquor license from the  Liquor  Control  Board  was  . applied   for   once  and   the  , approval in principle had been  obtained.  Director   Harry   Almond  moved to rescind approval in  principle but, as pointed out by  Director David Hunter, once  any action has been taken on  approval in principle, the  motion cannot be rescinded.  A new motion was made to  send a second letter to the  Liquor Control Board  rescinding a previous letter sent  supporting the neighborhood  pub in Davis Bay.  Youngest swimmer goes  Keats to Gibsons  by Carol Berger  "You made it!" was the thankful mother's exclamation as ten-  year old daughter Tina Fairweather stepped onto Armour's  Beach after swimming, across the channel from Keat's Island.  The seventy pound swimmer from Aldergrove made the  distance in an hour and ten minutes on Thursday, August 9 using  "her own frog-like stroke".  Since spending part of last year's summer at Keat's Island  Baptist Camp, Tina was determined to be the youngest swimmer  to make the distance. After almost cancelling the swim because ot  choppy water conditions, Tina set out at 1:01 p.m. from the  Baptist camp dock with a rowboat in lead.  Although missing her mark by some distance as she was swept  southwards, Tina was pleased with her time.  The swimmer was met on shore by her family and of course, the  family dog Shadow.

A public hearing will be held  August 29, Wednesday, for the  setting up of Service/Industrial  Bylaw 206, formerly known as  Bylaw 176. Included in the  application will be the Pebble  Holdings' amendment application to the Sechelt Vicinity Plan  Bylaw 109 regarding lots 30 to  36 of Block G in West Sechlt.  The original Service/ Industrial Bylaw 176, amendment to  the Sechelt Vicinity Plan went  to Victoria in April, 1978. The  Bylaw was held up because ofa  technicality, while back in  Sechelt, the Bylaw was passed  to third reading, through  public hearings and then  "died", according to Clerk-  Treasurer Shanks.  Because of the shuffle in  clerical staff, the Bylaw was  "forgotten".  Bylaw 206 will take over all  presently zoned industrial  property as Service/Industrial zoning. Some "nonconforming" properties will be  created with the new zoning  designation.  For creation of the new  zoning Bylaw 206, an actual  Service/Industrial for the  public hearing.  ' This will be the second time  at public hearing for the Pebble  Holdings amendment application.  In June when the Pebble  Holdings Application was  found to contravene the  Vicinity Plan Bylaw 109, Bob  Bull of Pebble Holdings made  an application to the Sunshine  Coast Regional District to  amend the Vicinity plan.  The application began,  "These lots have been sold to  the following local tradesmen  and they wish to start building  their workshops".  And closed, "These people  have spent a lot of time and  money arranging funding,  having plans etc. It is hoped  that this technicality may be  overcome".  "They may have been  stretching the point of  ownership, but I know there  are interim agreements signed.  They are being financially held  up at this point. Public hearings  have already been held and  rezoning approved when the  land parcel affected must be technicality was found," said  included in the application for Sunshine Coast Regional  that zoning to take place.

The Village is only  one member on the board but  on the other hand they are their  own entity. It is the Village's  problem," Pressley said.  It is now left as the decision  of the Regional Board whether  or not to accept the amendment  from Pebble Holdings.  The Village of Sechelt has  come forward to the Regional  Board saying that they approve  in principle with Pebble  Holdings' application for  amendment to the Vicinity  Plan, according to Pressley.  The proposed uses for the six  lots, as stated on the  application to the board are;  florist supply sorting and  packing���salal and cedar  boughs, auto body shop, sheet  metal shop, mini-warehouse  and glass shop.  In the new Bylaw 206,  Service/Industrial, some use  deletions have been made to the  previous industrial zoning. One  deletion is packing and  cleaning.  On August 4, Stan Anderson  of Pebble Holdings said they  were   "willing   to   place   a  covenant on the use of the land  if the Village gave an industrial  zoning acceptance to the  application, "in order to speed  it up".  "It passed once didn't it?  Whether they sit on it or not it  will go through. If there is  another public hearing, we'll  take them to court.  "In the final analysis, Pebble  Holdings really isn't terribly  Please torn to page seven  A delegation of irate mothers  who reside along the  waterfront on Marine Drive in  Gibsons took a bucket of dirt  to the Council meeting of  August 7 to dramatize their  complaints about piles of dirt  which had been left on  municipal property along the  waterfront for approximately  two weeks between their houses  and the sea.  What concerned the mothers  was an outbreak of illness  among young children playing  in front of their homes in the  dirt. The illness began with  mouth sores and fever and was  contracted by three or four  children.  One of the mothers involved  told the Coast News, "Initially  we phoned City Hall to protest  because they wrecked the area  between our homes and the sea  and left the piles of dirt there as  long as they did. It was only  when we phoned the Public  Health Officer and he was  unable to discover where the  dirt originated that anything  was done about it."  Apparently the dirt was  designed to protect the sewer  pipe along the waterfront there  from sea action. The concerned  mothers said pieces of  plexiglass, rusted tin and two  by fours were contained in the  dirt.  The mothers on Marine  Drive also pointed out that the  floats for children's swimming  at Armours Beach had not been  put in place this year until just  the week before the Sea  Cavalcade, whereas in previous  years they had been put in place  in late June or early July.  The matter was resolved  when heavy equipment  belonging to the Fiedler  Brothers packed the material  into place on Saturday last  week. The militant mothers of  Marine Drive are pleased that  the work has finally been done  but wish that it had been done  sooner.  "They only reacted to our  complaints when it became  obvious that no one knew  where the piles of dirt hid been  taken from," observed one  mother. "For all they knew it  could have been a serious  health matter."  Pioneer family honoured  Inglis Trail  One of the pioneer families  of the area received much  deserved recognition last week  when the Gibsons Municipal  Council agreed to call the  hiking trail linking the upper  and lower Village the Inglis  trail. The suggestion came from  Gibsons Chamber of Commerce President Arnie  Petterson in a letter dated July  25.  The Inglis family have been  associated with the medical  well-being of the Sunshine  Coast for many years. Dr. Fred  Inglis was for many years the  only source of medical aid  available locally and his home  above the head of the wharf  served as medical clinic and  surgery as well as home.  The concept of a hiking trail  linking the upper and lower  Villages was suggested by the  Chamber of Commerce and  students hired on a Federal  Government works program to  do the actual work of  establishing the trail.  Local students are at present  at work on the project.  Heavy equipment was moved on to the beach Iront In  Gibsons after motheis complained about possible health  effects from ths piles of earth the Village had Isrt the*. See  story this page.

We ordered it from  Victoria one day after il was released but it  Tailed to get here in time for this week's  paper.  I he timing of its release was cynical in  the extreme. MLA DonLockstead  demanded thc release of the report  throughout thc recent legislative sitting,  but it was only after the hard-working  MLA and every one else had thankfully  turned their backs on the Legislative  Assembly for this summer that the Socreds  released the report.  From what we have gathered it does  indeed conclude that the power line is not  the most economic means of providing  power for Vancouver Island. If further  evidence of cynicism were needed the fact  that Hydro announced the awarding of a  $235 million contract to Italian and  Norwegian companies for the underwater  cable on the same day the Shaffer report  was release.  We are pleased to note that Regional  Director David Hunter has taken a most  active interest in this whole question,  making available to certain portions of the  local press letters received from Vancouver  Island clamouring for the power line  largely because B.C. Hydro assured them  that it was needed. It's a strange thing  when people such as Regional Directors  and Aldermen are opposed to Hydro's  plans they are dismissed as know-nothings  but when such gentlemen are in favour of  Hydro's plans it is produced as some kind  of incontrovertible evidence.  What interests us is that this is the same  Director Hunter who spluttered with  indignation when George Gibb suggested  that the Regional Board look critically at  some consultant reports that had been  prepared for it concerning solid waste  disposal. "What," demanded Director  Hunter, "is the point of paying for studies  and paying no attention to them?"  A good question, Director Hunter, and  one we would like to have answered with  respect to the Shaffer Report.  Petrocan reprieved  The record of the Progressive  Conservative Party is just about perfect  now. They have reneged on every single  one of their pre-election promises. From  tax cuts to embassy shifts, the  Conservatives with greater or lesser grace  have backed away from all of their  commitments. It is cynicism which should  be causing some feelings of betrayal or  wrath in the bosoms of those Canadians  who voted for them but doubtless it will  not. The cynicism of the politicians being  largely matched by the cynicism of the  people who elect them.  The truth of the matter is, and this is not  the first time we have made this statement,  that there is absolutely nothing to choose  between the Liberal Party of Canada and  the Progressive Conservatives insofar as  political philosophy is concerned. That is  why during the election campaign they  spent so much of their time attacking each  other's leaders. The politics of personality  are the only politics left for them to fight.  We can at least breathe a sigh of relief  that the Tories' last promise, that they  would dismember Petrocan, has now gone  the way of all others If ever there was a  knee-jerk reaction without reason or  economic justification it was the Tories  apparent determination to deprive Canada  of a' national agency to represent it ih the  world of international fuel supply.  It appeared that the case for Petrocan  was convincingly made when the multinational which was supplying Canada,  Exxon, decided without consultation last  winter to ship oil destined for Canada to  American customers. It was obvious that  that was where the priority lay and obvious  that if Canada wanted to ensure itself a  voice in the international oil markets it  would have to be a government voice.  And so' we still have Petrocan. This is  one broken Conservative promise we can  be thankful for.  4   ... from the files of Coast Newa  ppsifm> ��  FIVE YEARS AGO  Not available.

Photo courtesy Gilbert Lee collection and Elphinstone  Pioneer Museum. L.R. Peterson  The question of energy seems  inescapable these days. No  matter where you turn the issue  arises. A couple of things drew  our attention last week. ���.  First of all, there was the  Vancouver Province distinguishing itself again with .the  kind of virulent and onejwjed  editorial comment whicfljbas  distinguished it since its return  from the strike. In this case it  was one of a series of editorials  attacking the Arab nations of  OPEC about their "price-  gouging" in oil. It strikes me as  ironic that when the nations of  the west were paying only  pennies per barrel for Arab oil  it was smart business. When the  Arabs, on the other hand,  indicate that they have learned  a trick or two from the  international capitalists and  begin to charge what the traffic  will bear, they are accused of  the most irrational economic  behaviour. What's sauce for  the Arab goose is apparently  not sauce for the Western  gander. What made the recent  editorial in the Province most  un-settling is that it hinted  darkly at the possibility of a  war waged against the oil  producers by their oil-hungry  customers. Specifically, the  Province wondered if the  Arabs knew what they were  doing and how long it would be  before the peace-loving  American people with their  life-style threatened began to  clamour for military action in  defense of their interests. Last  time I looked, about 60% of the  non-renewable resources in the  world were being used up on  this continent and I cannot be  persuaded of thc justice of that  situation. What is so special  about thc American life-style  that it should take precedence  over the rest of the world?  It may seem a long step from  the local debate on the  Cheekye-Dunsmuir power line  to the question of International  oil shipment, but I find a  similarity that 1 would like to  draw out. Thc conventional  and guiding wisdom of our  times seems oblivious of the  fact that some changes in our  approach to energy seem to be  inevitable. We cannot continue  to devour energy in the way we  have for the past generation.  There isn't enough of it. When  the Province hints at war to  maintain the status quo of a  suicidal consumer lifestyle and  when Hydro insists that only  through growth can the debt  incurred in pursuing growth be  liquidated, they arc united in  refusing to believe that the  future can hold anything except  more of what we have known.  The concept that it is time to  begin to prepare people for  lessening power sources, to  discuss alternate ways of  providing for and heating  population, is alien to the  Province's editorialist and to  the management of B.C.  Hydro. (. .  The economic leadership of  the Western world seems daily  to resemble more and more the  leaders of a buffalo stampede,  running like hell to avoid being  trampled by their followers and  sure to be the first over the  inevitable cliff.  There is hard evidence  beginning to accumulate in  a myriad of ways that the times  they are a-changing and we'd  better be ready to change with  them or be broken by the  changes. If anyone had been  told even a couple of years ago  that the Chrysler Corporation  would be desperately begging  for money before the end of the  1970's they would have been  looked at as though mad. Yet it  is so and it is so because  Chrysler continued to make big  motor cars after people  stopped buying them because  of the now-recurring gas crises.  Chrysler, in short, failed to  change with the changing  times.  It is unlikely that we have  seen the last of the changes that  will be required of us here in the  Western world, yet conserva  tion is one of those quirky  words which have taken on a  negative meaning in ruling  circles. One is reminded of the  word peace-niks which the  establishment press applied to  those who were convinced that  the Vietnamese war was not a  good idea. Anyone who  thought that raining napalm on  women and children was a poor  way to spread democracy was a  peace-nik.  So now with conservationists. A pitying glance from the  seats of power is what you gain  by asking questions about  conservation. The powers that  be want more of the same in  ever-increasing dose. That's the  medicine they prescribe.  Present day economists are like  the doctors of the 17th Century  who drew blood from the ailing  and if that didn't work they  drew more. They don't know  what they are doing but they  feel impelled to keep up the  pretence that all is well.  If that wasn't enough to be  contending with, now we have  the Vancouver Province  hinting darkly at war, one  presumes nuclear war, so that  the present disastrous over-*  consumption of the world's  resources can continue  unabated.  It leads one to wonder sadly  if mankind is only a more  complex moth fluttering into  the compelling candle.  A Religious Use of Taking Tobacco  The Indian weed withered quite.  Green et morn, cut down at night,  Shows thy decay;  All tlesh is hay:  Thus think, then drink tobacco.

Slings & Arrows  ��*  ������   -. fc  George Matthews  ?l  Living in Victoria, I get my  copy of the Coast News so long  after the publication date that  I've taken to calling it the Coast  Olds. I don't think it's a matter  of sloppy subscription  handling on the part of my  colleagues, but rather a result  of a generally inefficient mail  connection between Gibsons  and Victoria.  I ran into the same problem  earlier this year when an  important document was  mailed to me in Gibsons. The  post mark on the letter was,  Victoria, September 3, 1978. I  received it Feb. 9, 1979. So  much for efficient communication. Of course it may be  something to do with the  generally provincial attitude of  Victorians. They don't seem to  regard the mainland as  particularly important. In fact  the other day I heai;d some  fellows talking about the  possibility of a ferry strike  sometime in August and the  only thing they seemed  concerned about was the fact  that if the ferries stopped  running, the mainland would  be isolated.  In any case, to get back to the  Coast Olds, I was intrigued by  the series of articles and letters  to the Editor concerning school  drop-outs and the various  explicit and implicit criticisms  of the education system  generally. I'm always amused  by comments on education, not  in any superior way, but I've  always observed that the less  qualified someone is to make  a comment on a subject, the  more he has to say. Education  in this one respect is like sex  and politics���everybody claims  to be an expert.  One crucial difference in the  current debate however, is the  quality of knowledge of thc  participants. Here, gratefully,  we have knowledgeable  adversaries debating issues  which ought to be the major  subject of debate of the entire  community. There can be no  more important issue in  education than the relevancy of  schools and the needs of  students.  I was particularly interested  in John Burnside's recent  column dealing with, among  other things, the current trend  toward centralization in the  school system. The trend is  neither particularly new nor  restricted to education in B.C.  There is a trend generally in  North America toward  centralization (retaining  decision making power at the  upper end of the education  hierarchy) that is reflected  throughout the system.  That this tendency is at odds  with the professional integrity  and autonomy of which the  poor classroom teacher is not  within the limits of this  discussion, but suffice to say  that the ability of your  childrens' teacher to make  informed judgements and  decisions about your kids,  based on what she knows and  understands about them is in  danger of being severely  limited.  Allow me to briefly point out  the trend toward centralization  in the system. In the first  instance, we had the  establishment of the Provincial  Learning Assessment Program,  in itself a useful indication of  educational standards across  the province. The fact that the  program is1 being used to  control the assessment process  in the hands of a centralized  authority is however, disconcerting. The trend toward  centralization in an organization is most often associated  with a belief by top  management that the people  carrying out the tasks of the  organization are incompetent.  What that means is that the  bureaucrats in the Ministry of  Education don't trust your  childrens' teachers. You send  your kids to school everyday in  the belief that you can trust  their teachers. You know your  childrens' teachers better than  the bureaucrats, but they don't  trust them.  Further, the tightening of  budgetary controls by the  Provincial Government reflects  another form of centralization.  In this case suggesting a lack of  confidence in local communities to wisely finance  educational projects. Local  education authorities are  severely limited as to the  quality of and amount of  educational spending for their  districts.  Moreover, there are  indications that recent  government legislation (Bill 18  in particular) in threatening  the job security of teachers and  especially administrators, is  another try at centralizing  decision making. When the:  jobs of the professionals are  made more tenuous, then it is  much more likely that they will,  be inclined to "follow orders":  than to use their professional!  judgement. Any attempt to  oblige professional persons to:  comply with the instructions of:  the bureaucracy is clearly a'  centralizing tendency.  This centralizing trend is not'  limited to the Ministry, but is  reflected throughout the  system. Decision making at the*  district level is being  centralized more and more into  a few hands.

Letters to the Editor  Some forty interesting suggestions  Editor:  I propose a modest  suggestion to the province of  British Columbia. I suggest  that they double their ferry fleet  every summer by recruiting  passenger ferries from south of  the equator (where it is now  their winter season) for our  heavy summer traffic. I  understand that these boats are  expensive and therefore it  seems feasible to my untrained  mind that a ferry system could  supplement its fleet in this  manner. These are all oceangoing vessels and it would take  only a few weeks to move one  of these ships from, say, Chile  to British Columbia in the late  spring.  How I came upon this idea is  through my recurring fantasy  of hi-jacking a B. C, Ferry.  Waiting in line-ups has pushed  my gentle law-abiding mind  that far. I know it takes a fair  amount of aggression and  threats and even a weapon or  two, none of which I have much  of, so the very idea of hi-jacking  a ferry is something that I could  never put into reality. Yet with  good reason I continue to have  this fantasy and I intend to get  it out of me now, precise in all  the details of the manoeuvre,  the manoeuvre.  The reason is a simple one-  protest. I protest the terrible  summer service on our B.C.  Ferry system. I object to futile  hours I am required to sweat  out in my metal-lined hot box,  without water to drink nor a  toilet in sight. I am appalled  that if I should wish to visit for  a weekend certain parts of the  province accessible only by  water, that I am required to  spend one-third of that  weekend lined up in those  purgatorial cages called ferry  terminus where I am faced with  not one twig or branch of  shade, but only hot blacktop  and other equally hot metal  cars and assorted containers  for other fellow travellers.  How would I hi-jack a ferry?  Well, come early spring season  when we won't need as many  sailings per day, in fact when on  the Horseshoe Bay-Langdale  run you might have only fifteen  cars on a three hundred and  fifty car capacity ferry, I would  board with the other foot  passengers, make my way  directly up to the Captain's  deck and as the ferry pulled out  of the terminus, I would  present him with my  protest/proposal with all the  obligatory additions so that  he'd know I was a quite serious,  though inexperienced, hijacker. He would be instructed  to radio the terminus that we  just left and tell them the  circumstances and that we were  returning immediately to disembark the fifteen cars. (They  would have to back out.) Then  we would leave the dock again,  and heading out with full crew  for the glorious seas, move on  our way to South America on a  search for more ferries to  supplement our summer fleet  and improve our summer  service.

Coast News, August 14,1979  Frankie's Ticket  Part II  The crummy smells like most  crummies do when I pack my  itutcan aboard with the rest of  tlie animals that first morning.  It's a distinctive odour  compounded of stale sweat,  tobacco smoke, leather, apple  cores and whatever other food  fragments lie decomposing  under the two, long wooden  benches that serve for seats.  Ihese army-surplus trucks arc  widely used to transport crews  in the camps of the early fifties  and trigger vague war-  metaphors in my mind even  then. I've got the green-horn  jeebies worse than usual since  ill be tackling an unfamiliar  job, flic faces of my travelling  companions do little to set me  .it ease. They seem, almosi to a  man, the surliest-looking  bunch of ruffians I've ever  rattled into battle with. There  are only a couple of other guys  my own age. The rest appear to  be in their late thirties or older,  gruff, gristly men who take  llieir logging seriously. I feel excruciatingly young, naked with  inexperience. Directly across  from me sits a gross hulk of a  man with a brutish, booze-  blotched, incredibly ugly face.  His right eye is a sightless slit.  The good one studies me as  though 1 were a new fish in jail,  the mouth parts in more of a  leer than a smile, exposing  broken teeth, brown with  snoosc and decay. He's caught  me staring at him. I look away  en barrassed, and study the  splintery, caulk-pittcd floor.  We bounce on up the  mountain and finally reach the  setting. It is a damp summer  und the landing is a shrouded  mysteryscape, drowned and  unknown in throttling fog. My  sense of unease increases.  Christ, I can't even see what  I'm   up   against!  The   hook-  Pages  from a Life-Log  Peter Trower  tender is a short Irishman  called Bren Carmody. He bears  an amazing likeness to James  Cagney at his feistiest. 1 half  expect him to start hitching up  his pants with his elbows and  talking in a Hell's Kitchen  accent. But this, unfortunately,  is real life. The woods are full of  small, chip-on-their-shoulder  types like Carmody. Great size  is of no particular advantage on  a sidehill. You just make a  better target. Carmody's actual  voice is deceptively soft with  thc fading remnants of a  brogue. "We got a couple days  swinging left out of the hole,"  he informs me, indicating a  mist-sinister abyss that drops  away steeply on the lower side  of the road from the spar tree.  "When wc got that out, I'll put  you on the cold-decker."  I nod with what I hope is an  air of nonchalant assurance  and follow the two chokermen  who are already heading down  the steep socked-in slope. We  stumble our way to the bottom,  at least a thousand feet below  where the remainder of a cold-  deck pile (two-hundred odd  logs) lies sprawled at the foot of  a second spar tree like a giant  game of pick-up-sticks. Since  we are swinging out from a  Fixed location, I am expected to  blow my own whistles. The  starting horn shrills twice; I  reply with a similar affirmative  and the unseen rigging comes  clattering back. I spot it mostly  by ear, over the pile and slack  the chokers down to the logs.  Soon the first turn is bashing  invisibly away up the hill. The  game is afoot for better or  bloody worse.  Actually, I'm rather thankful  for the fog. It will serve to hide  any blunders that may occur  while I'm getting used to this  new responsibility. My  chokermen are a disparate pair  to say the least. Perce Crawford  is an eager-beaver kid from  Prince   George,   catty,  conscientious, bngnt���as good  a rigging-man as you could  wish. He's a natural logger, the  kind who'll move up the ladder  fast if he stays in the bush. The  second man, Nick Madoff, is  quite another matter. He is also  from the Interior around the  Doukhobor country but it is  soon apparent that he must  have left his brains back there if  he ever had any. He is quite the  most obtuse character I have  ever worked withandclumsyas  a china-shop bull to boot.  Madoff is precisely the sort of  dunderhead the old-timers  must have had in mind when  they First used the term  "farmer" as an epithet for such  totally inept loggers. He should  never have left the cow-country  and he probably tripped over  horse buns even there. He has  apparently been here for a  couple of weeks and how he has  lasted that long it is hard to  imagine. They must be  goddamn hard up for men in  this layout.  The foggy day drags on with  Perce and I doing most of the  work. Madoff is invariably last  in and last out of every turn.  The two of us could do just as  well or better if he weren't there  at all.  Shortly before noon we hook  onto the biggest piece in the  stack, an enormous fir butt-log.  It's a First-growth about eight  feet across the base with little  taper. It looks so heavy I decide  to send the pitchy old beast in  alone. The mainline goes taut  and the massive fir lurches off  into the still dense mist.  Realizing he's hooked a big  one, the engineer throws her  into the basement. He'll be  awhile winding that monster in.  Perce and I fire up cigarettes.  Madoff, who doesn't smoke,  sits staring blankly into the fog  as though watching some  unseen movie. I certainly  wouldn't give a penny for his  thoughts.  The  weighty turn  labours up the mountainside  above us. The road-line must  be well-worn and I've had no  hangups so far. Now however,  the immense log hits some solid  obstacle and stops dead. I hit  the whistle. "Better get a bit  further in the clear you guys," I  say. "I'll try skinning it." I go  ahead on the haulback, pull the  invisible fir free of the  obstruction and try again.  Once more it hangs up and this  time I don't stop it quickly  enough. There is a sudden  jangling clatter and I realize the  choker must have broken. The  fir comes smashing back down  the sidehill like a runaway  train. I feel a rush of panic even  though we're probably well out  of its path. You can't see fifteen  feet in this soup and there is no  telling. "Get behind something!" I holler and head for  the protection of a big cedar  stump. Even Madoff has the  brains to take cover, moving  faster than I've seen him move  all morning. It is as well that we  do. The fir thunders down well  to the right of us and crashes  into the pile but there is  something in its wake. A huge  boulder, dislodged by the log,  comes barreling out of the mist  only a few feet away from where  we are hiding and batters to rest  somewhere below us. "Jesus H.  Christ!" whistles Perce, "that's  a bit too goddamn close for  comfort!"  "You're not just shittin'," I  say, feeling faintly ill.  They've shut off the machine  up above. "Hey, you guys okay  down there?" someone yells.  "Yeah, nobody hurt," I  shout in reply. "Better skin me  back another choker though."  I hook onto that stubborn fir a  second time. Thankfully, it  .shoses to cooperate and rides  up without a hitch. The lunch  whistle goes and we head for  our nosebags. I'm still a bit  shaken from that near-miss  boulder. It is hardly a  propitious omen for my first  day. Fortunately, the  afternoon goes well enough  although the fog stays thick as  ever.  \ cowmunitk  Sol icits support in the form of sustaining and corporate memberships  renewable annually for 20 and 40 dollars.

Held by Popular Demand  8 p.m.-12 midnight  FOLK ROCK  with  GARY ATKINSON  by Rae Ellingham  General Notes: Lucky trend  continues as the Sun and Venus  conjoin the beneficial Jupiter.  This is one of the best weeks of  the year to start new projects,  especially those of an original  or daring nature.  Brave lovers getting married  will be glad they did, providing  they    can    handle   unusual  changes and challenges.  ARIES (March 21-April 19)  Accent is on continuing  enjoyment of all pleasures and  amusements. Happiness will  arrive from unusual source.  Holidays started this week will  be remembered for their  pleasant interruptions and  changed plans. Remember this  is your luckiest week of the  year. Gambling or speculation  promise sudden good fortune.  Meanwhile, unexpected  incident may be linked to  child's curiosity.  TAURUS (April 20-May 20)  Domestic happiness continues despite breakdown of  household routines and  invasion of visitors. At least  those expanding the home  notice worthwhile improvements. Don't be afraid to add  original flair to finishing  touches. Realize that rental or  real estate opportunity is rare  deal to be grabbed. Young  Taurus persons leaving the nest  will be glad they did.  GEMINI (May 21-June 21)  Once again all forms of  short-distance communication  are sources of good fortune and  personal growth. Unexpected  letters or phone calls announce  long-awaited opportunities.  Advice is to grab them. Short  trip takes you to the person  with the power. Don't be put  off by strange appearance.  Meanwhile, take note of  neighbour's original plan.  CANCER (June 22-July 22)  Accent is still on personal  finances and possessions.  Many of you should expect  large sum of money from  forgotten source. Dig out and  check those crumpled lottery  tickets. Looks like lost and  treasured article will be found  through strange coincidence.  Others now welcome your  uncontrollable gencnosity.  Guard against impulsive  spending. Place spare cash into  lucrative account.  LEO (July 23-Aug.22)  This is probably your most  fortunate and exciting week of  the year. The Sun, Mercury,  Venus and Jupiter still in your  sign continue to bestow Life's  major goodies. Those starting  new projects, ventures or  journeys have chosen a  favourable period. Don't allow  unexpected incident to budge  you off chosen path. Aug. II  birthdays have best year ever.  VIRGO (Aug.23-Sept.22)  Spotlight is still on activities  behind the scenes, private  schemes, keeping ideas secret.  Those enjoying seclusion,  peace and quiet face  disruptions of a beneficial  nature. Now's the time to sign  papers presented by unexpected visitor. Don't blab  confidential details. Remember  you're expected to serve others  without reward. Sacrifice and  contentment    are    presently  inseparable.  LIBRA (Sept.23-Oct.23)  Long-range plan now  receives unexpected financial  boost thanks to influence of old  friend or acquaintance. Looks  like you'll reach goal more  quickly through alternative  and more challenging route.  Meanwhile, those involved  with local group or community  venture face sudden change in  cash How.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-  Dec.21)  Focus is again on people and  affairs at a distance.  Unexpected opportunity far  away may necessitate change of  plan. Those with firm travel  arrangements must prepare for  delays or alternative transportation. Holiday taken in remote  place will be remembered for its  shocks and surprises. Strong  interest is directed towards  higher learning and desire to  improve personal skills.  CAPRICORN (Dec.22-Jan.19)  Involvement with other  people's property or finances  brings rare opportunity.  Original shared venture hints  of quick gains.

Matter linked to  alimony, insurance or joint  account is settled suddenly in  your favour.  AQUARIUS (Jan.20-Feb.18)  Relations with close  associates, partners and loved  ones continue to bring  optimism and contentment.  However, don't allow silly  disagreement to cool recently  formed friendship. Rebellious  behaviour of someone close to  you is result of misunderstanding. Remember that dealings  with others have never been  better. Aquarians starting a  business or marriage this week  will enjoy periods of sudden  good fortune.  PISCES (Feb.19-Mar.20)  Accent is still on improved  conditions where you perform  daily jobs and services. Those  of you dumped with the housework receive unusual means of  assistance. Employed persons  again recognize opportunity  for advancement. Health  matter now becomes less  worrisome. Appetite increases  so watch that weight!  MM  _______*  ____m________ Bookman's Corner  Doctorow discovered  by Joka Moon  I have a terrible confession to  make (terrible at least for a  book-reviewer): I have an  almost irresistible aversion to  reading books that "everybody" is reading. Undeniably,  there's an element of snobbery  here, but it's been reinforced  countless times by disappointing dips into "best-sellers". As  a result I'm usually a little out  of touch. Inquiries about what  I thought of so-and-so's  acclaimed new novel are apt to  be fielded with all the  enthusiasm of a chronic  catatonic.  A week or so ago Roberts  Creek artist Joan Foster joined  the ranks of those kindly souls  who from time to time, do  something to remedy my  ignorance and remind me that  good writing and making  money aren't always mutually  exclusive propositions. Joan  loaned me a couple of books,  Ragtime, by E.L. Doctorow,  (one of those books "everybody" was reading a couple of  years ago) and an earlier novel  by the same author, Welcome to  Hard Times, published  originally in I960 and' re-  released by Bantam Books  paperback in 1975 to capitalize,  I more than suspect, on  Ragtime's success.  This kind of scam, using an  author's recent achievement to  make a fast buck flogging  earlier and usually inferior  work in matching "by the  author of editions, seems to be  on the upswing in the  publishing business and I  naturally assumed that I might  be in for a few nights of pretty  dull stuff.  Not so. I read Welcome to  Hard Times first, just to keep  my chronology straight. It's  not a very long book and I read  most of it in one night. It may  have got good critical notices in  1960, but I doubt if it made the  bestseller lists then. Those were  the days of "Bonanza" and  "Gunsmoke" and Doctorow's  stark, violent portrait of the  Old West wouldn't have tallied  too well with the popular myth.  Hard Tin.:s is one of those  flyspeck towns that never made  it on any map, a saloon, a store,  a few shacks, a place for miners  to come for a few drinks and  the company of two saloon  girls who've seen better days.  There isn't even a sheriff,  only the unelected Mayor, so-  called because he's the only one  really interested in the town as  such. He keeps informal  records, the census, and dreams  of putting the town on the map.  The story begins with the  arrival of the Bad Man from  Brodie, an outlaw who, like an  elemental force, literally  destroys the town single-  handedly in one drunken  rampage.  The book is really the story  of the Mayor's attempt to  rebuild the town from the ashes  to make it a real town. It was  never a real town before, he  reasons, because the people  didn't believe in it themselves.  Reading Welcome to Hard  Times is, as the jacket suggests,  like reading a ballad by Robert  Service. The characters are  larger than life symbols of the  greed, lust and brutality in  collective humanity, as well as  the obstinate, almost stupid  urge to survive and build  something out of nothing, but  they work because they never  lose their unique individual  humanity. Doctorow's writing  is finely controlled, His  craftsmanship as a writer is  undeniable and the understated  elegance of his prose is what  gives this brief mythic tale its  power.  Ragtime is a much more  ambitious book. Its huge cast  of diverse characters includes  people who are fictional and  obscure and real and very  famous, from Henry Ford and  J.P. Morgan to Harry Houdini  and Sigmund Freud. Their  fates are inextricably woven  together in a masterfully  conceived plot, full of the  marvelous coincidences and  surprises that characterize the  great novels of the past. The  only contemporary novel it can  be compared with is, perhaps,  Canadian author Robertson  Davies' Fifth Business. Again,  Doctorow's control of his  medium, his ability to write  simple, straightforward  compelling prose is much in  evidence. In spite of all this,  there was something vaguely  disappointing about Ragtime.  On the jacket of the Bantam  edition it says "You will never  have read anything like  Ragtime before. Nothing quite  like it has ever been written  before.'.' Well, you can't believe  everything you read. Actually  there are a number of  American writers emerging  who work in a similar, subtly  ' satirical, larger than life vein.  Kurt Vonnegut Jr. comes  immediately to mind.  Vonnegut's early work has the  same quality, the same  understated, simple style. The  danger inherent in this style is  that it can, as Vonnegut's later  work, say Breakfast of  Champions, illustrates, become  self-conscious, self-congratulatory about its own cleverness  and ultimately patronizing to  the reader. Ragtime is a much  tragic, as with the late Ernest  Hemingway. As Picasso used  to say, "It's easy to paint fake  Picassos. I've painted hundreds  of them."  A certain amount of  anachronism is inevitable in  any novel in which an author  deals with a time other than the  one in which he himself exists.  The conciousness of Ragtime  seemed to me to be  unmistakeably the consciousness of the 1960's. The same  might be said of Welcome to  Hard Times, but where it was  ahead of its time, Ragtime  might almost be said to be  behind the times.  So much for the quibbles. I  enjoyed Ragtime very much  and I think Welcome to Hard  Times is a minor masterpiece.  Doctorow's growing, popularity is also a welcome sign that  the American novel is  gradually ceasing to be the all  much better book than but exclusive province of over-  Breakfast of Champions, but   rated and over-paid medio-  there are places where the  author comes dangerously  close to parodying himself.  When others parody an  author's style the effect is  humorous; when an author  begins to parody himself it's  crities. Thanks Joan for  lending me the books and if you  don't have them back by the  time this appears you can give  me one solid whack across the  brainbox with the Oxford  Dictionary. All for now...  More letters  Museum thanks  Editor:  The Elphinstone Pioneer  Museum Society would like to  thank all who made our recent  Sea Cavalcade Art Exhibition  such a tremendous success.  These include Greg Bellerby, at  the extensions department of  the Vancouver Art Gallery, for  an excellent exhibit of the  works of such fine artists as  John Constable, Boudin,  Binnings and Jack Shadbolt,  and the many local artists that  we were proud to host. Also,  thanks to the B.C. Provincial  Museum, for their fine  travelling exhibit, Frank  Swannell, B.C. Land Suveyor  (which will be at the museum  until August 17.).  Further   thanks   to   The  Gallery Shop, the Sunshine  Coast Arts Council and the  characters   who   helped   us  shuffle around the museum's  collection and set up the show.  Sincerely,  The Elphinstone Pioneer  Museum Society.  Community name change  Editor:  We see that friend of  Council, Regional District and  all kinds of other people, Henry  Hall, has seen fit without notice  to any agency whatsoever, to  change the name of our  community, Wilson Creek to  Sunshine Corners. We wonder  what is next. Possibly, this was  done for our own good or for  the good of the community���a  favourite expression that  comes to mind.  We feel that Mr. Hall, in all  his wisdom, should really ask  the people affected before he  changes the name of our  community.  Dennis Hollis  Food cost opposition  Editor:  Are you fed up with rising  food costs? Then read on���  there's something you can do  about it.  It all started in Bramaiea,  Ontario in February when 12  angry women met over the fact  that food prices increased a  whopping 21% in 1978���a year  of AIB "controls". At the  meeting it was decided that if  enough consumers acted  together, something could be  done about food prices.  The group called themselves  Women Against Rising Prices.  WARP moved quickly. They  decided that the most effective  way of exerting pressure on the  supermarkets would be to ask  shoppers to boycott eight  assorted items every two weeks  to crate havoc with the stores'  inventory methods.  The list of items, picked  because they recently had gone  up in price, would be published  in the "shopping basket" pages  of any newspaper willing to  join in on the campaign. So far  several have.  The idea has caught on in  communities all over North  America. Chapters have  already been set up in each  province and inquiries have  come from the rest of Canada  and all over the United States.  The result is the Canada-wide  organization.  If you're interested in  starting or joining a WARP  chapter or would like more  information, contact: Eileen  Pedersen, 410 Wellington St.,  Trail, B.C., V1R 2K9. Phone  364-1679.

Slings and arrows(cont'd)  and process of educational  programs were once pretty well  left up to the school, the  inclination now is to  standardize throughout a  district and allow schools less  autonomy.  This pressure is also being  applied to administrators.  Where the time was that a  principal left content and  method of classes to the  knowledge and imagination of  the teacher, the approach now  is to supervise teacher behavior  much more closely. It doesn't  take a Ph.D. in sociology to  understand   that   the   closer  someone is supervised, the less  likely that person is to try  something new, exciting or  unusual. What we end up with  then is a teacher who is afraid  to take a chance or show  initiative.  I hope that my next few  copies of the Coast Olds will see  the debate continuing. I would  like to read someday, in a  report from a school board  meeting, that these same issues  are being debated where they  are supposed to be debated, not  just in newspapers but right  there in the official arena of  educational discussion.

Aid for refugees  Residents on the Coast are  continuing to give overwhelming support to the local  sponsorship program for  'Vietnamese Refugees. To date,  the Sunshine Coast Society for  Vietnamese Refugees has  received $3,200 in cash  donations. Pledges of 'more to  come' are still being received.  The Society's application to  the Department of Immigration to sponsor two families has  now been accepted by Ottawa.  The Society has been asked to  "be patient" while Canadian  officials in Singapore screen the  refugees. It is still expected that  the families will arrive late in  Arena  Editor:  Thank you for your write-up  re: the Sechelt Ice Arena. Now  ther's no more confusion due  partly to the fact that our  Regional Directors pulled  together so well at their August  9 meeting and some five people  turned out to show their  interest.  The referendum to give  minimum aid to the Arena  should it be necessary, will go  ahead in areas B, C, and the  Village of Sechelt. We hope all  the informed voters will turn  out and pass it so the hockey,  figure-skating and curling may  continue to be enjoyed by all���  whether spectator or participant.  We're fortunate that Phil  Raines will manage the Minor  Hockey this winter and hope  that the kids and their families  from all over the Peninsula will  lend him their full support.  Sincerely,  .

I've been spanked a couple of  times for going out of the  garden, which I think is unfair  when the cat is allowed to  squeezed under the gate and  then sits on the steps and jeers  at me. I thought I was pretty  smart to figure out a way to get  him!  I told you about all the toys 1  inherited and nice as they are I  mostly like things which I And  myself. One of the best games  is to find an apple which has  dropped from the tree or been  knocked off by the crows. It's  much more fun than a ball  because every time you bite it  you get a taste of the spicy juice.  The path down to the garden  is now called "Apple Hill"  because I play there. I drop or  push the apple so that it rolls  down, bring it back up and  drop it again. It's a fun game 1  play every day.  Sometimes, along the beach,  we find those long kelp ropes  with a float and leaves on the  to(�� They're good fun too,  especially if someone will swing  it for me to chase. For several  days I had three to four hung  from the cherry tree and they  swung wildly as I jumped for  them.  I didn't tell you about the  beach���we walk there most  days. It took quite a while  before I discovered the sea. I  thought it was just water at  first, but sometimes it likes to  play too, comes rushing at me  with lots of title bubbles  floating on top. I enjoy  splashing around and chasing  the waves, a game which brings  cheers and cries of "Araminty  Potter" from the onlookers. I  don't know what it means, but  it adds to the fun. However I  don't think you need worry that  I'll disgrace my Boxer ancestors  by becoming any sort of  swimmer.  The sea washes in all sorts of  goodies, sea weed and little  dead shore crabs. They keep a  sharp eye on me in case I find  anything they think unsuitable,  but as I've come to no harm I'm  now allowed to eat the crabs,  and barnacles and mussels.  They're not too easy to scrape  off the rocks but my new big  teeth help. I guess people have  things to learn too! They are  funny though, aren't they?  How can they think a stale, old,  pockety milkbone is fair  exchange for an odoriferous  seagull or fish skeleton?  I did get the squeaky rat I  was promised (even before I  stopped having accidents in the  house) and it's a favourite. I  talk and sing to it and it makes  such lovely, exciting noises in  return.  I've long outgrown my little  bed and have inherited my  predecessor's day-bed in a big  box. The mattress and blanket  were washed and a new cover  made for me, and Fran made  me a little cushion from a piece  of soft velvet material we found  on the beach. I can lie on my  back and pat it around with my  paws, roll and wriggle to my  heart's content without falling  out. I've had several frights  falling off the chesterfield!  I'm just off to look for  another apple; yesterday's is  too soft to bounce properly any  more. I hope you're having a  good summer too. If you don't  come soon to visit you won't  know me any more. I'm  growing so fast���they tell me  net to stretch in the hopes I'll  stay small and cuddly���but not  a chance; I want to be a big, bad  Boxer!!  Give my love to everyone.

Carefree gardening  by Sandy Loam  Ever since moving to the  Coast, I have adored the  splendid view from the hill  looking down towards Molly's  Reach, the main wharf and the  Marina. In the early evening  the whole area becomes a  purple-blue jungle of masts,  pilings and multi-coloured  reflected lights. Last week I was  fortunate in being invited to  visit Marg and Harry Smith  who live in privacy within the  centre of activity. This could  not have been accomplished  without the steep slope against  which their house is built.  They have a charming  planked walkway which  delivers you right onto a square  sundeck overlooking the entire  area of activity, but which  remains relatively unseen by  the general public using the  wharf. Since the house is two  stories, there is plenty of space  for lawn and garden on the  lower level, but Marg has  preferred to bring hers up onto  the deck through the multi-use  of planter boxes, pots and  hanging baskets. The effect is  miraculous.   It   becomes   a  suspended garden with masses  of colour, and to be practical,  I'll bet weeding is almost  unnecessary. I don't remember  ever seeing fatter, healthier  petunias.  The Smiths have neglected  nothing in their suspended  garden. They have a peach tree  growing up against the wall and  they even have sweet peas in a  planter box. These combined  with hanging baskets filled with  begonias, give a vertical feel to  the area as opposed to down  and horizontal. There are  lovely Fuchsia trees in pinks  and purples and ever tropical,  exotic Tuberose Begonias in  shattering shades of orange. In  the tubs are Portulaca, ever  fragrant Nicotiana, Impatiens  and Schizanthus...all this  without the bother of  encroaching grasses or weeds.  Marg gives everything a  good dose of fish fertilizer once  every two weeks and may  indeed be elected carefree  gardener of the year by us.  Imagine all this and complete  privacy in the busiest heart of  beautiful downtown Gibsons...and the view. Oh! my!  The receht little fuss about'  Artichokes in this newspapei  has brought an overwhelmini  response. From as far away a.  Garden Bay and all the way tc  Port Mellon offers of plant!  and seeds have come in alon;  with requests. So just give u: .  time and everything will son  itself out. I will keep track of al  those who send in their names  and will mail out the seeds a!  Soon as I obtain them. As fot  the offer of cuttings, we at the  Coast News are delighted at the  generosity of our readers and  will certainly see that each and  every cutting gets a good home  and plenty of care and next year  at this time we, too, will be in a  position to portion them out to  other interested gardeners.  Thank you all so much for your  support. Down in our news  office this whole affair has been  most gratifying and we are  referring to it as "The  Artichoke Episode". Perhaps it  will become an annual event or  something like it.  The blue flowered ground  cover mentioned in last week's  column is discovered to be  "Creeping Charlie"���a little ;  friend to few, an annoyance to  many.    Happy Gardening!  From Lockstead in Victoria  Transportation suffering  by Don Lockstead  The last Ministry to have its  budget approved was that of  Highways and I took the  opportunity to outline some of  the massive transportation  problems that have long  plagued the Central Coast  region.  One of the main problems is  that the Highways Ministry has  been a traditional source of  political pork barrelling. There  is an old saying in Social Credit  circles "when in doubt, pave a  road". Proof of this is that  announcement of highways  projects are done personally by  MLAs in government ridings  while opposition members  often are informed secondhand. During the election it  was the Social Credit candidate  who announced a supplementary vessel to service Earls  Cove, Saltery Bay and Powell  River, and as MLA for the  riding I had no notification  WANTED  Used Furniture  or What Har/e You  AL'S  USED FURNITURE  WE BUY BEER  BOTTLES  from either the ferries or the  Ministry. (The fact Mr. K.  Sorko is a director of the B.C.  Ferry .Corporation and was  also campaign manager for the  Socred candidate in my riding  may have had some significance.) The point is that  something as important as  transportation should not have  to suffer because of political  games.  Aside from some small  repair work which has  occurred, Highway 101 is still  in need of major reconstruction. That highway does not  even link up with the portion  which was completed north of  Halfmoon Bay several years  ago. The Langdale-Gibsons  bypass has been recommended  by the ratepayers in the area  and I expressed concern in the  House that before construction  starts the Municipality,  Regional District and  ratepayers be satisfied of the  highway's location. The Powell  River sections of the highway  are collapsing into the ocean  and with the traffic increasing  all the time the need for action,  possibly even a different route,  is pressing. The same applies to  Ocean Falls which is in need of  urgent highway repair. For the  entire length of 101 from  Langdale up to Lund there is  not one rest area. These are the  concerns   I   voiced   to   the  ��  9�� ^^^^  ��Ptxional Caxt LPtoduett  ���s/Vutiitlonal JSuhlii t mint  ^ in tual Cituning  iPxoau ati  Phone Ruth  886-7018 or  886-8328 eve.  Shaklee  Because we care  Rodrts ond people together n harmony with natue  J  Minister of Highways in the  hope of action.  Coastal transportation at  present is at the level it was  thirty years ago. Since the  government assumed full  responsibility for coast  transportation the service has  been terrible. For instance  obtaining fresh food supplies is  an impossibility in the Queen  Charlottes and Ocean Falls  because suppliers are given no  special consideration by the  Ferry Corporation. This  inflexibility plays havoc with  most everyone who depends  upon the ferries as their  exclusive means of travel. It  seems confusing that resident  commuter cards are honored  on a number of ferry routes on  the Sunshine Coast across to  Horseshoe Bay but not on the  Powell River to Comox route. I  see no reason why free travel  should be denied to the  handicapped, the chronically  ill, and, during the half-utilized  off-season to school, youth and  service groups.  The coastal residents are not  receiving the transportation  service they deserve. Judging  from the service to the Queen  Charlottes, Bella Bella and  Bella Coola one really wonders  if the government has not  forgotten them. The proposed I  airport at Bella Bella,  presumably a joint Federal/Provincial project is nothing  but a big question mark at this  point. With $90 million in overruns in Highways for each of  the past two years surely some  funds could be directed this  way.  CARS AND TRUCKS  Rental���Leasing  ���Also-  Domestic and  Industrial  Equipment  Seaside Rentals  885-2848  _���!______________ 1  Sechelt Arena  Referendum on again  by Carol Berger  The "wish of the people" was  granted by the unanimous re-  decision of the Sunshine Coast  Regional Board to hold a  referendum in Areas B and C  for support of the Sechelt  Arena August 9.  In a petition brought before  the Board by Larry Reardon on  behalf of the Sechelt Arena  directors and concerned  citizens, the Board was asked to  put the vote before the citizens  and "let the people decide".  At the July 26 meeting of the  Regional Board, a motion was  defeated for the holding of the  referendum in designated areas  B and C even though the  designated referendum motion  had been passed at a June 30  meeting of the Board. After  allegations of illegality, the  motion was brought before the  Board once again.  "We need that grant from  Victoria and that grant is  hinged on the referendum and  that referendum is hinged on  you guys," Reardon said.  It was pointed out to the  board that 75% of Arena users  came from areas B and C.  "The motion that was held at  the last board meeting was in  order, subject to challenge. I  am willing to reconsider and  make a motion to rescind that  motion," Chairman Ed  Nicholson said.  "No one really knew what  the hell they were votingonand  I would challenge the chair for  that motion," said Director  David Hunter.  After some discussion  between Board members  Hunter commented, "It does  not benefit the dignity of the  chair to continue on like this."  "It is unfortunate that this  series of events had to happen. I  get the distinct impression that  Chairman Nicholson is being  blamed for turning down the  referendum," Director  Harrison said.  "What our intentions  seemed to be was we were  interested in a specified area  with no intention not to have a  referendum. As far as I was  concerned, the referendum was  sitll on. The problem is how big  the specified area is going to  be, not whether or not we're  going to have a referendum,"  Harrison said.  In the event that the board  did go to a recreational  package for the entire coast,  Director Lee suggested that he  saw no reason why the Arena  function should not be  included in the package at a  later date.  It was agreed by the board  that if the resolution should  pass in the referendum,  financial control should pass to  the Village of Sechelt and  Regional District.  A solicitor will be acquired  to outline the ramifications of  Arena financing.  The earliest possible date for  the referendum would be  October according to SCRD  Secretary-Treasurer Ann  Pressley. The board will now  decide whether or not to set the  referendum for October or wait  until the November regular  elections.  Coast News, August 14,1979  Sechelt rezoning  This accident occurred at 4:30 p.m. on August 10 on Highway 101 in Pender Harbour.

Fire prevention  film recommended  The Provincial Fire  Marshall's office has  announced a film of special  interest for those interested in  fire prevention will be shown  on Monday, August 20, at 8:00  p.m.  The film is The Other Child  and it is a dramatic  presentation of the disfiguration and suffering caused  children by exposure to heat  and flame. It was filmed at the  Burn Unit of the Isaak Walton  Killam Hospital for Children in  Halifax.  It is hoped that this fire  prevention public information  feature will remove some of the  public apathy towards fire  prevention.

Maybe we'll have to build  duplexes on the lots,"  Anderson said.  Anderson also said that he  thought putting an industrial  park beside the West Sechelt  marsh would be "terrible". But  that for his light industrial  property, 200 yards would not  be too close.  Anderson again restated that  there was equal profitability to  duplex building versus  Service/Industrial zoning and  that no legal commitments had  been made to proposed land  owners.  "Contrary to what Mr.  Henry Hall says, there are no  property holders...in fact one,  but it is subject to rezoning. A  letter to that effect has been  sent to one prospective land  owner who has put some  money in," Anderson said.  The Pebble Holdings  application for amendment is  only the second received by the  Regional Board for the Sechelt  Vicinity Plan since the plan was  adopted a year ago. The first  amendment given was to Henry  Hall.  At the next Regional Board  meeting, August 23, a report  will be presented by Regional  Planner Bill Lindsay advising  the formation of a formal  notification procedure between  the Village of Sechelt and  Regional Board. The procedure is hoped to prevent further  "technicalities".

Burglary & Fire Alarm Systems  for  Commercial, Residential, Vehicles, Boats  Alarm Systems  S86-911S  Serving the Sunshine Coast  FREE estimates without obligation  Sunshine Coast Golf and  Country Club on August 4 and  5 was a huge success. The  tremendous volunteer help  from the members, working at  their various assigned tasks of  carparking, serving lunch and  snacks, spotting and marshalling on the golf course showed  that match and house  committees were well  organized.  This year's winner in the  men's division was John Senick  from Gleneagles, who took the  low gross and championship  with a 36 hole score of 147.  Runner-up to Senick was 1977-  78 champion Bill Cartwright,  who missed catching Senick by  one stroke, shooting a low 148.  A popular visitor on the  Sunshine Coast Golf Course  from Seymour was Harold  Taylor who took low net  honours with a 36 hole score of  126. The Village of Gibsons'  Trophy was presented to John  Senick by Mayor Lome Blain  who mentioed in his remarks  that the Sea Cavalcade opened  with a BANG and the Sea  Cavalcade's Golf Tournament  closing was having the same  impact.  A hard fought game was  played in the ladies' flight with  Anna May Taylor from  Seymour Golf Course  defeating our own Virginia  Douglas by two strokes. Taylor  scored a 36 hole score of 171,  with Douglas carding a 173. A  popular win was achieved by  Kay Budd of Sunshine Coast  who played a steady game to  take the ladies' low net prize  with a score of 141. Lena Grant  of Powell River won second  low net with a score of 142. Dot  Utterback from Seymour was  third low net with a score of  144. Fourth low net was taken  by Doreen Lannigan from  Seymour.

Our 1978 club champion,  Gordy Scott, made a bid to win  the Village of Gibsons'Trophy  but fell a few strokes short.  However, his low net score of  133 in the 0-9 handicap flight  won him first low net honours.  Second low net was Jim  Gilchrist, also one of our  members, with a score of 138.  Third place in the 0-9 flight was  taken by Vern Goodfellow.  In the 10-14 handicap flight  the winners were Ken Hincks  Sr., from Victoria with a net  score of 136. Second in the 10-  14 handicap flight was Alex  Sharp with a 136 and third went  to Gordon Taylor, shooting a  137.  The 15-22 handicap section  went to Sunshine Coast  member Len Mitten with a  score of 132. Second in this  flight was past President Andy  Grey who shot 135. Third place  went to Bill Langhorn,  shooting a 136.  The Sechelt Red & White  Store Trophy for low net was  presented to Harold Taylor by  Bev Giles.  The salmon barbeque  cooked by Pat Mulligan with  the capable aid of his wife  Merle and second helper John  Petula, was delicious. Pat  cooked up two hundred and  thirty servings complete with  his own barbeque sauce recipe,  for all the hungry golfers and  guests.  Each year's Cavalcade Golf  Tournament has been a success  and enjoyable. Plans are  already being formed for next  year's event at our popular golf  course.  Bill Van Weston's offer from  Suncoast Chrysler in Sechelt of  $1,000 in merchandise for a  hole in one was narrowly  missed several times. Maybe  the same offer will be repeated  next year.  Don't forget the men's 36  hole golf match for the Seniors  coming up in a couple of weeks  (fifty-five years and older).

Left to right, Lena Grant, Virginia Douglas,  Business  information  Sechelt and District Chamber of Commerce has opened  a Business Information Centre  in Sechelt, located at its office  on Cowrie Street.  The Business Information  Access Program is running in  all parts of the province under  the auspices of the Ministry of  Tourism and Small Business  Development and the B.C.  Chamber of Commerce.  This program is a referral  service and has been organized by the government so  that persons who are interested in starting a business or  persons who are already in  business, would be able to  seek help with problems which  might arise. The Centre has  access to many sources of  information so that clients can  be advised of which agencies  they can go to for help.  The program is not just for  those wishing to start a new  business, but is also for those  who wish to upgrade and improve, existing businesses.  For example, counselling is  available through the Federal Business Development  Bank through its seminars.  Individual counselling services are also available  through    the  Anna May Taylor, Roy Taylor, Kay Budd, Dot Uttartoack,  Doreen Lannigan.

These  are indirectly supported by  many people in this area.  Some save cancelled postage  stamps which are sorted,  trimmed and sent in. From  the stamps sent in by the 85  chapters in the province and  the Yukon, this year $6,895.29  was realized for the cancer  fund. Others help by giving  old sheets or materials that  may be torn into rags and sold  to raise money for the cost of  dressing materials. Others  contribute to the fund by  attending the teas and bazaars  in July and November and  supporting the draws and  stalls.  Dressing stations are maintained by 63 of the Chapters  and last year there were 1,398  volunteer workers making  dressings for cancer patients  and they worked a total of  33,779 hours. The cost of  materials was $26,261.37  and 219,412 dressings as well  as other items were made.  The local station at Roberts  Creek makes not only dressings for cancer patients but  also for non-cancer patients,  free of charge. All that is  required is a doctor's signature on a form available from  the Public Health nurse.  The Order provides the  Shane Fellowship to assist  financially doctors who wish  to further their education or  research in some area of cancer treatment. One of the first  recipients, Dr. Boyce. gave  a comprehensive report of the  Cancer Control Agency in  Vancouver.

An  informed public, he said, is  one of the most important  tools in thc control of cancer.  He llunkcd the O.E.S. for  Its .support. Since 1946 the  Orcli;- has contributed over  $346,000 to cancer projects  and most of the equipment  purchased over the years is  still in active use for patient  treatment and comfort. Many  of the items are difficult to  get through the government  since they are not general  hospital requests. These include a machine shop for  making a great deal of their  own equipment, radio therapy  for the examination of lymph  nodes by injecting dyes, many  precise instruments, electric  microscopes, special knives  for cutting tissue, patient  comforts (T.V.'s, a billiard  table, bed scales, etc.), pro-  theses (the eyes, noses and  ears made in their shop are  the best on the west coast),  audio-visual equipment for  teaching and making films,  a major contribution of unique  books for the professional library and funds for training  through the Shane Fellowship.  This year's total requests for  new proposals comes to  $31,459.00 and the Order  has committed itself to purchase these, as well as giving  the $10,000 Shane Fellowship  and completing projects from  1977 and   1978  Continued support of the  public will be most appreciated.

It didn't bother  to get out of the way until the  sound of the car stopping  alerted it to the fact that it  wasn't alone. Apparently there  were half a dozen of them  poking around the lake.  Fifteen evening grossbeaks  were spotted on a property up  behind the Pen Hotel about ten  days ago. They are always  interesting to watch. They  appear, hang around for a meal  and then are off again, like  some private travelling club.  Driving from  Gibsons to  Pender on Friday, I counted  four deer. One of them was a  little guy, still with its spots.  They were very tame and I was  able to get close enough for  pictures. I hope they smarten  up before hunting season.  While I was in Pender, I ran  into ex-Fisheries Officer Ray  Kraft. From what he said, there  was a study done on the  lamprey eel in this area. It  would be interesting to read the  findings.

Music Horizon  by Mike Evans  Everytime I 'do one of these  columns it usually starts with  something like "Last weekend  at Gibsons Legion..." Why is it  that none of the other  organizations on the Coast are  interested in holding regular  dances anymore? Perhaps they  don't like the added patronage  that dances draw. You would  think this attitude would soon  result in lack of business and a  generally depressed state of  affairs.   Maybe   there's  by Iaa Corrance  Crows  In the past couple of weeks  I've been noticing newspaper  clippings appearing on my  desk. The first one is titled One  Shot' Scott still at it after  twenty-five years.  "Hidden among the bushes  of Ambleside Park, an off-duty  policeman tenses as the sun  rises to greet another Sunday  morning and he senses the  presence of his prey."  His prey are crows which  apparently come down in great  flocks to make life miserable  for the populace. The article  goes on to list all the nasty  features of these black  marauders, how they steal all  the fruit, dive bomb children  and what have you.  Needless to say, the next  clipping that appeared had two  letters supporting the crows,  one from a graduate student  who had been studying the  crows for three years and  refutes most of the claims made  by the articles. The other was  from a lady who just plain likes  the birds.  Whoever it is that is bringing  in the clippngs, could you keep  doing it as I'm interested in  how they solve the crow  problem.  According to quite a few  people I've spoken to around  here, it's felt that there is  a similar problem here.  Hopefully there's a better  solution   than  just   plain  substance to the rumour that  live music will soon reappear in  Sechelt. I hope so.  Last weekend in Gibsons  Legion a band named  Goodtimes entertained. They  were a four piece group  comprised of a keyboard  player, guitarist, drummer and  a lead singer/horn player.  First off, there's something  intrinsically wrong with this  format. The bass is handled by  the keyboard player using a  synthesizer. Synthesizers just  don't sound as good as bass  guitars   and   too   often   the  keyboard   player   loses  effectiveness because his left  hand is constantly    tied up  playing bass.  Goodtimes'   most   unique  feature was the flute and horn  work of the lead singer. Songs  like MargaritavUle were spiced  up nicely with flute passages  that were note for note like the  original. But his real talent lay  in his trumpet playing. Beer  Barrel Polka was done with a  Bavarian gusto that is the  trumpet's   alone   and   a      professional  mastery of the   roll, they should stick to their  * instrument was displayed in the   own  style  in  Cabarets and  Bird, Chattanooga Choo Choo,  and so on were flawless.  Especially noteworthy was  their rendition of Afternoon  Delight in which the band  showed complex and precise  three part harmony. They had  their music books out in front  of them and they rolled  through this kind of music  easily. However, as the night  wore on and the frequency of  rock and roll increased it  became obvious they were uncomfortable and out of their  realm.  The main culprit was the  guitarist. His laid back  approach didn't come close to  sufficiency for the faster tunes.  He destroyed China Grove and  Takin' Care of Business by  misplaying the rhythm guitar  pieces that are the core of these  songs and his leads were barely  juvenile. He just sat back and  allowed the keyboards to carry  all ol the sound.  Don't get me wrong. Just  because they couldn't play rock  and roll doesn't mean they were  a bad band. Afterall, it was a  rare treat to hear Goodtimes'  varied repertoire which even  included some Samba and  Bossanova numbers.It's just  that if they can't play rock and  Coast News, August 14,1979  WOOD AND    __  ALUMINUM WINDOWS  CONVERSION WINDOWS  GLASS  MIRRORS  AUTO GLASS  iiLet.li mm  Hwy 101 & Pratt Rd   Gibsons  866-7359  PENINSULA  MARKET  885-9721   Davis Bay, B.C  tide tables  Theee two deer were running near Rat Portage Hill on Highway 101 last week.

The Rev. Mallory  quickly saw their point and  agreed to set up this peculiar  pous exploration into unreality. The rock group"Kiss"  offers an excellent example:  It's bass player Gene Simmons fantasizes that he would  like to see his audience  "grovel at his feet" and finally see just "how truly wonderful and amazing I really  agreed au SC.

The point here is that rock  and roll can be as religious as  it wants to be. It-is not always  married to excess. Equally  true is the point that not  everything truly religious has  to have God's name pasted all  the way through it. This whole  thing reminds one of rock and  roll's debut in the early 1950's  when  hundreds  of faithful   jaying that rock and  roll ended the war in Vietnam  pure and simple, but I am saying that it played an indispensable role In increasing the  awareness that finally overcame it.  In light of the more pressing  problems of modern society,  unlimited nuclear proliferation, cruise missiles and the  possibility of imminent global  warfare, rock and roll stands  as the official opposition.  Sometimes it may seem incurably romantic, but certainly not evil.  ~Gib8ons Public  Library  Tuesday 2-4 p.m.  Wednesday 2-4 p.m  1 Thursday 2-4 &  1 7.9 p.m.  ||saturday2-4pm  886-2130  BM-Ti  Cami  FAMILY SHOES and LEATHER GOODS  "IN THE HEART OF DOWNTOWN SECHELT"  FARMERS'MARKET  RoMrU Cram, Sunday, Auguii 12.

Copland  Municipal Clerk 10.  Coast News, August 14,1979  Come cry with me   ^  by Ann Napier  Write Boi 3,c/q Coast Naws  Dear Ann,  I am having trouble with my  mother-in-law. She thinks my  child is being spoiled. Naturally one child gets all the love  and presents are showered on  her, but she is five years old  and I've read that that's a very  sassy age anyway. She certainly has self-confidence.  Everyone dotes on her. I think  she'll be fine���not going  through life looking for love.  She has all she can absorb.  What do you think? 1 don't be  lieve in spanking. 1 correct her  with love.  At Odds.  Dear At Odds,  I agree to a gnat extent.  I think when they get overbearing a swat on the bottom  Is a natural thing. Some children straighten up. Yon may  Ond a swat Jut sets some  children off In a defiant mood.  When that happens I think an  yon can de la reason. Deprive  them of some desired tay sr  food. Children abased often  abase, se children shewn lets  of love are more loving. Ihey  lean to snow their feelings.  No parent should be a doormat. It seems modem child-  relalng haa produced this situation often, where adults  cant convene on the phone or  In person because the child  constantly Interrupts and demands lo be the center of  attention. So, as In everything, It's a fine balance. If  yon mother-in-law, who  should be a doter, b criticizing, examine the scene carefully and see If you are going  overboard. It takes perspective In all things. Love snd  praise do a lot, bnt firmness  new and then Is a guide-line  as to what makes one love-  able. See she gives presents or  flower* and thinks of others In  return.  Dear Ann,  I am seventeen and dating.  I'm confused about my role.  I don't want to have sex. I just  want to dance, kiss and have  fun. My partners, on the other  hand, are playing a more serious game. I feel pressured  after a dance or party. I just  want to go home. Parking and  kissing seems to be just a  start for the guys, but it's my  all. I hate to sit at home when I  love to be around parties and  dancing is a love. What to do?  Limited  Dear Limited,  For     whatever     reason,  you've set these standards for  yourself. That Is your business. Your body Is your own.  Share your company and be  happy and healthy. When you  meet Mr. Right you'll fed differently. This pattern Is right  for you. Others best sex like a  handshake, much too casualty.  Sex Is best when It's heart,  body and soul, so In the end  waiting for the best Is logical.  Dance away and don't wonder.  Dear Ann,  I live with a very pretty  woman. She seems pleased  with me, and sex is great. I  work away sometimes. Last  time I was away, when I returned I watched her undress  and saw a bruise on her shoul  der that looked like a love bite.  I asked her about it and she  said it was the cupboard door.  She raised herself up from  getting something below; it  was open and hit her in the  shoulder. I have a sick feeling  this isn't the case. What to do  and say?  Lost  Dear Loot,  Yon sound a bit desperate.  Many times people probe and  ask for answers they really  don't want If yon are going to  stay, no matter what, drop it.  Confessions bum In the mind  and are hard to forget, whereas a mystery can fade without  ao much trauma. If yon would  leave, be prepared. It could be  what yon think.  take her word. If you've bad  no trouble In the put, hat let  It go. Truth Is stranger than  Dear Ann,  These hot days I can't seem  to keep cool. I hate deodorants. What do you advise���  organic-wise, that is?  Hot and Still Heating  Dear Hot,  There are many ways to stay  cool. In tropical placet people  take a dip In the ocean  throughout the day. You can  Jut step Into a shower or tab  several times at home. Baking  soda sweeten the body. You  may pat some on strategically  here and there. I wu talking  to a local lady in Roberta  Creek who makes  tea, mixes It with alcohol and  sprays It on henelf from time  to time during the day. Eating  foods that have light flavour  and odour���salads and fruit, a  bit of cheese or fish���In preference to red meat helps. The  fewer poison you have to  eliminate the better. So try to  get only food with no ad-  dlalves. Herbal teu and Jukes  all leave one refreshed. A nap  In the hut of the day when  possible Is a battery charger)  even half an hour gives one  new get-up-and-go. If you  make love during siesta, you  may not be so energetic.

Part I  By Lester R. Peterson  He was poking at the  blazing fireplace when the  first suspicion of a call came.  "Once," he said to himself,  "will be only the wind. Alone-  ness has the habit of finding  in a stormy night the inflections of the human voice.  If it comes again..."  It did. Something in the cry,  even through the sounds of  the wind, had told his subconscious mind that the voice  belonged to a woman. Yet,  when he found her in the  snow, the situation took him  by surprise. Since her last  call she had apparently  yielded to sleep, for she now  lay still on the trail, a darker  bundle on the gray-white  ground. She was wet and cold,  and of course a stranger.  She woke gradually from  the deep slumber that had  engulfed her. She returned  to consciousness in stages,  realizing first that she was  waking, and only afterwards  that she had been asleep.  Then, in patched and Inverted  order, came the parade of  incidents that had preceded.  It was daylight. She was in a  bed and in a bedroom. The  hour hand on a clock on the  dresser near the bed stood at  ten. It was a man's room.  The large low window towards  which she faced looked out on  snow falling on a slope that  led down to a tiny lake.  Still in penumbra, her mind  played hide-and-seek between  the dark and light of sleep and  wakefulness.  "This is all but foreground,'  it peeked at her to say. "The  background has not spoken to  you yet."  Then, slowly, from far to  near, from mist to focus,  came the sound of music.  Someone, beyond the closed  door of her room, was playing  a piano. She listened for a bar  that would name a theme she  knew, but none would come.  It was nearly this, and nearly  that, but never quite the one  nor yet the other.  The music was elusive,  yet it probed the ear and penetrated through the mind.  The player was striking the  keys easily, but not softly.  "He is not trying to be  quiet for my sake," she  thought. "He plays the way  he feels; the way he wants  to play. It was he who brought  me out of the past last night,  and who has awakened me  into the future now."  Footsteps crossed another  floor, paused, and a knock  sounded on her door. It  opened at her reply.  The man finally broke the  awkwardness of their mutual  disadvantage. "Are you all  right?"  Her arms and legs had not  reported yet. She tried them  now. They functioned, but  only under protest.  "Yes," she - answered.  "I'm all right."  The sudden host moved as  if to enter the room, then  turned, still holding the door.  "I'll bring you some breakfast."  "It's all right. I can get  up." But already he was gone.  She ate her meal propped  so that she could look out at  the continuing snow. The  man, stirring about the room,  nodded towards where she  watched.  "It looks as though we are  going to have plenty of that."  He said it casually, as if it  meant no more than that.  Jumbled reasoning arrived  at its conclusions before it  had touched at half the points  along the way.She was here...  Snow...If she had been forced  to halt last night, how could  she hope to go on farther  now? Where was "here,"  the spot in space at which she  had arrived? How long before  the snow was gone?  "I'm sorry to be inconveniencing you," she said.  "Did I say all that?"  He had stopped by the window. His glance told her that  he had followed her thoughts  in their backward and forward flight.  "Here-have some coffee."  The girl found that by the  time she had had enough to  eat she had also had enough of  sitting, even in her propped  position. There would be no  more attempts to get up today.  A stand by her bed was  filled withbooks. Apparently,  she was not the first occupant  to spend reclining hours in  reading. Idly, she plucked up  a volume.  Dishes rattled briefly beyond the bedroom wall,  followed by the whispering  of a broom. It stilled, and footsteps crossed the floor. Somehow, the listener felt that she  knew where they would end.  Her guess was right.  She tried to keep the music  in its place, but it would not  stay. It should have been content to form an Incidental  drop beyond the images she  read. Instead, it came between and blurred the words  away. Now, interspersed  among the disconnected  themes, were selections  that she knew. Debussy  tinkled bells in the aurora  of a mountain dawn. Schubert,  from his garret, spoke of  love in melody too beatiful for  words. Chopin tried to answer  the enigma and the disillusionment of life with the only  argument he knew against  a stranger world. And always,  in his own inventions, and in  his Interpretations of these  known melodies, there showed through inflected notes and  chords glimpses of the man  who played.

The morning continued with  a session with Mr. L. Lavoie  the Director of Election Operations of the Office of the  Chief Electoral Officer. Mr.  Lavoie spoke to us about the  duties and responsibilities  of the Office of the Chief Electoral Officer. The office also  investigates election irregularities. Mr. Lavoie also outlined  the prerequisites a person  must possess before he or she  can declare candidacy.  The busy morning continued with a meeting with the  _ campaign managers of Can-  ��� ada's three dominant political parties. We discussed  among other things their campaign strategies in the last  election. The campaign managers were Mr. G. Ashworth  (Lib.), Mr. T. Ralfe (Cons.),  and Mrs, Anne Scotten  (N.D.P.).  We started the afternoon by  viewing several pre-taped  Question Periods. The topic  on one tape was the dissolution of the House for the  recent Federal Election.  The'next segment of the  session was a mock parliament. We were permitted to  join any of Canada's political  a group of N.D.P. members  decided to introduce a motion  of non-confidence. The reason  was that we felt the answers to  our questions were unsatisfactory. (We disregarded the  fact that it is simpler to ask  questions than to answer  them.) The leaders of the Social Credit and Liberal parties  agreed to vote in favour of the  motion. We were required to  introduce the motion correctly, so it required four attempts  before the Speaker (Mr-  Marcel Pelletier, Assistant  Clerk to the House of Commons) asked for the vote. The  Speaker advised us how to  vote properly under parliamentary procedure. Each  member of the House was required to shand and state his  or her name and the name of  his sor her riding. At the conclusion of the vote, it was a  clear victory for the Opposition. Mr. Speaker then requested the resignation of the  Prime Minister and his Cabinet. This exercise was one of  the many exercises in which  we were placed in an actual  decision-making position. It  is also one of the best ways to  learn about parliamentary procedure.  In the evening we hosted a  dinner party for M.P.'s at  ately very few M.P.'s attended because they were working  in their home ridings. One of  the familiar M.P.'s that did  attend was Warren Almond  (Lib.).  Our first session of the  morning was a panel discussion with three members of  the media. The topic was  Media and the Government.  The following people participated in the discussion: Miss  Juliane Labreche (Macleans  Magazine), Mr. Bruce Cameron (C.B.C.) and Mr. Francois Perrault (Radio Canada  T.V.). The panel discussed  such points as the responsibilities and rights of writers  and editors. They also spoke  about the types of articles and  investigative reporting they  had completed in the past.  was devoted to the Government Departments. Mr. J.  MacNaught, the assistant  Deputy-Minister (Finance and  Administration) of the Department of Regional Economic  Expansion participated in this  session. A student asked this  question, "Does the Minister  control the department or  does the department control  the Minister?"  He replied, "To a great extent the department controls  the Minister." For example,  when the party in power  changes, then the senior departmental officials 'break in'  a new Minister.  During the afternoon we  travelled to Lac Phillipe (Quebec) for a barbeque and  sports. This was an opportunity to talk to my fellow Canadians.

We  started with Minnie Souler*  burg, we stayed there for  about 1 hour, The kids really  enjoyed talking with her. Then  our journey went to Hun-a*  chin, then to Fred's house to  see his Pigs that weighed  about 600 lbs. and Billy Goat,  Mother and babies.  The high light of the whole  thing is that wc went camping  up at Chatter Box Falls which  the kids and supervisors  enjoyed very much. Then the  morning after we had breakfast then off we went to Malibu for a grand tour around the  camp, it was something different for the boys and girls.  Lois and Phylis were the two  nice ladies that showed the  kids the Malibu camp, lt was  very nice of them to give us  their time. Then an hour later  we started back to camp.  On the way we stopped off at  Potato Creek for a picnic and a  swim.  Later when wc got back to  camp we all went swimming  for about two hours then had  supper at 5:30 p.m.  When supper was finished  we had a thorough clean up.  Everyone had u> pitch in and  clean up everywhere like the  dorms, yards and classrooms.  All had to be clean before we  left.  After all that was done all  the kids packed and watched  slides until around 10:20 p.m.  By 10:30 everyone was in  bed and asleep, woke up at  4:30 a.m., had breakfast at  5:00 a.m., left by 6:00 a.m.  What a beautiful day for travelling.

Coast News, August 14,1979  On becoming a Rover        I   Ramblings of a Rover  by Dee Cee  On Becoming a Rover  In the unlikely event that the  reader or readers (if any) have  been waiting anxiously for a  whole week to hear the results  of the classic bout between a  brash schoolboy and an up-  and-coming young lawyer, I  hasten lo set their minds at rest.  It (thc boxing contest) didn't  come off. My seconds, after  returning from thc long bike  ride to Sittingbourned,  informed me that Susan's  fiance was no longer ihere. He  had, so they heard, accepted a  partnership in London and had  moved bag and baggage to the  city. Without, I hope,  appearing craven, I must say  that I was relieved although, to  keep up a bold front, 1 assured  Tommy K. and Bill D. that I  would search him out and if  necessary travel to the far ends  of thc earth to beat him up for  presuming to even dare look at  my (?) Susan. To tell you the  honest truth I did nothing of  the kind. 1 still continued to  gaze up her skirts and let my  imagination run riot, but as far  as making any advances to her I  might just as well have been one  of those wooden Indians which  one used to see in the front of  thc tobacconists' shops.  However, I still continued to  "train". Much to my mother's  consternation I refused to eat  certain foods that she placed  before me���pies and pastries  were taboo and spotted dick,  roly-poly puddings and such  were also on my prohibited list,  although the temptation to  have just one spoonful was at  times overpowering. I had  obtained a book on diet and  conditioning from some source  and as far as I remember I  followed it assiduously, living  mainly on oranges, apples,  nuts, and raisins (it was  fortunate my Dad was a grocer)  and licorice allsorts. The latter  were certainly not mentioned in  the book but I was addicted to  them and reasoned that they  were definitely an asset to the  alimentary canal so I continued  to eat them.  Time passed by. I had three  fights, two with my schoolmates which I won, and one  which I lost. This fight was with  a much older and more  experienced chap who had just  signed up with the Army. For  the first time in my life I was  knocked out cold.  In spite of the spartan diet  and all the energy I was burning  up I still had a terrific interest in  the opposite sex. Realising  eventually that my passion for  Susan was an exercise  futility, I kept my eyes open  and senses alerted for  something or somebody to  replace her. I must have  "propositioned" half of the girls  and women in the small town of  F. Those from 14 to 40 were in  my view "fair game", but there  must have been something  sadly lacking in my approach  to them as in all cases I received  the cold shoulder treatment  and most of them, after one  date, refused to have anything  more to do with me. I guess I  had about as much finesse as  far as the opposite sex was  concerned as a bull moose in  the rutting season. I thought  for a while that I "had it made"  with a nubile nymphet from the  girls' school next door (God  knows, I tried), but she too  would have none of this  horizontal position nonsense,  so once more I was back to  where I started from.  I toyed with the idea of  raping one���discarded that,  pondered on where I could  obtain some cloroform and  other hair-brained thoughts, so  it was fortunate for me that  about this time my slightly  dotty old Aunt Jennie  presented me with a five-pound  note as a birthday gift, with the  stem admonition that I keep  the knowledge from my  Mother and Dad. I never did  ascertain what the family feud  was all about but this aunt (on  my father's side) had no use for  my mother. She was a childless  widow and quite wealthy. She  would have nothing to do with  the rest of the family, including  my sister who was named after  her, but I, the youngest, was a  favourite of hers and she  spoiled me rotten (incidentally,  she was instrumental in nearly  killing me when she bought me  my first motorcycle, but that is  another story and will have to  wait).  Anyway, a "fiver" to a boy of  sixteen was really something  and could buy a great deal in  those days, so, on thc pretext of  going to visit another aunt, I  managed to sneak away, catch  the train to London, and  headed for where I had heard  all the action was-Picadilly  Circus.  Realizing 1 had a strenuous  evening ahead 1 fortified myself  with a steak and kidney  pudding dinner at the A.B.C.  and later washed it down with  three or four pints of draught  apple cider (I had already  discovered it had a great deal  more "wallop" than mild and  bitter ale). I took a cab and  informed the driver as to what  was on my mind and in less  time than it takes to write it, he  stopped (I think it was on  Jermyn Street) and the next  thing I knew, here was a real  live tart sitting next to me in the  back seat. She was quite young  and reasonably pretty but the  main thing was she was warm,  willing, and all set to go and,  surprisingly enough, knew  where to. Between the cider I  had   drunk   and   the  exotic  fragrance of her perfume I  became so dizzy I don't  remember what the tariff was.  (I don't mean for the cab���that  was three shillings and  sixpence). I am not sure  whether it was one pound or  thirty shillings which she  insisted she had to have right  away, plus an extra ten shillings  for the room, also payable in  advance. I thought all this very  strange but complied with hei  request and away we went, God  knows where. It turned out to  be a dingy room down a back  street. A slatternly looking old  lady at the door obviously  knew my new girl-friend, an  exchange of money (a 10 note)  and we were on our way  upstairs.  1 think at this stage of the  story, seeing that after all the  Coast News is a family  newspaper, I had better draw a  veil on what went on in that  room. I was so damned nervous  and excited that when she  asked me for a shilling for the  gas meter I am sure I gave her  ten! However, we managed to  bring the sordid affair to a  succcessful close after she  depleted, my resources further  by taking another ten shilling  note from me saying she was  going out to get some  sandwiches and would be right  back. Needless to say I never  saw her again. I waited until the  old hag appeared and gave me  an ultimatium���more money  or get dressed and get out. I had  no alternative. My "fiver" was  almost gone so out I went, slept  the remainder of the night in  the waiting room at Victoria  Station and caught the first  train back to F. in the morning  (luckily I had a return ticket).  On the journey home I  thought back on the whole  affair. Strangely I felt no  elation nor was I proud of  myself. On the contrary, I felt  sad, disillusioned and  depressed. Certainly I wasn't  much wiser but was more  bewildered than ever. If this  was what love and sex was all  about I wanted no further part  of it. I only wish I could have  kept that resolve....
