 Legislative Library,      $0.1  Parliament Buildings,  Victoria, British Columbia  The Sunshine  Published at Gibsons, B.C.  15* per copy on newsstands  �� MSI ataasJataOaa Nt. 4TIS  Serving the Sunshine Coast since 1945  July 31,1979  Volume 32,Numbe- .11  Sakinaw crossing  Hydro may reconsider  After i July 23 meeting with Sakinaw Lake representatives,  a reconsideration may be given to the proposed 500 kv transmission line crossing of Sakinaw Lake.  Environment Minister Rafe Mair and Eamon Crawley, manager of Hydro's systems design division, landed on Sakinaw  Lake July 23, Monday morning, for an hour-long meeting with  Sakinaw Lake and Pender Harbour representatives.  Mair and Crowley toured the lake from the south to north end  accompanied by Joe Harrison and Howie White of Pender Harbour, and Ivo Cargnelli and Bruce Barclay of Sakinaw Lake.  After a short tour of the area   near to Klein Lake and North  to be crossed by the proposed  500 kv transmission line, Mair  commented, "Sure it's beautiful. That's the problem, all  of British Columbia is beautiful."  A new alternate route was  proposed by representatives  to go north of Sakinaw Lake.  Eamon Crowley has said that  he will prepare a study of the  new route on technical feasibility.  The route proposed to Mair  at the meeting, following the  lake tour, would go on the  west side of Sechelt Inlet to  Earl's Cove passing on its way  At Port Mellon  Lake to Nelson Island, running  close to existing power lines  then to the south side of West  Lake and on to Cape Coburn  underwater to Teiada Island  and finally underwater to  Dunsmuir on Vancouver Island.  Although passing near  Klein and North Lake the line  might not be visible and only  partly visible on the south side  of West Lake, according to Joe  Harrison.  "It now appears thst a substantial number of people are  going to voice complaints from  Earl's Cove and North Lake,"  Harrison said in a recent interview.  Hydro says that a review is  being made of the route but  two problems remain���a substantial amount of private property would be crossed and  the provincial cabinet would  have to approve on the takeoff point from Earl's Cove  across the Ambrose Lake  Ecological Reserve.  On July 24, Mair said a  public hearing regarding the  proposed line was being considered on the condition that  no question was made of line  justification.  Howard White continued to  press Mair on July 23 on the  issue of line justification and  release of the Shaffer report  but no new reply was given  regarding either question.  White also reiterated to  Mair that Sunshine Coast and  Sakinaw Lake residents were  as much opposed to one line as  any other.

Lawyer H. Suiger, on behalf  of Henry Hall, pointed out the  close proximity of the marsh,  200 yards distant, and residential areas to the north,  esst, and west of the lots.  "If you're going to change  these lots to an industrial use,  you have to' be concerned  about the image," Suiger  said.  "Sometimes the word  'developer' is a very negative  word. It is the duty of the  Board to give some stability  to planning.  "You are told today that  there Is going to be someone  manufacturing windows.

VICTORIA���Construction of s  msssive nuclesr power complex at Sedro Wooley, Washington, would create a serious  risk to the economic livelihood  as well as the health of the  population of southern British  Columbia, a brief by by B.C.

Presenting the 1,500 word  brief in Seattle were: Robert  Skelly (NDP���Alberni), caucus environment critic; Chris  D'Arcy (NDP���Rossland-  Trail) caucus energy critic;  and Gordon Hanson (NDP���  Victoria).  The brief pointed out that  the $3.1 billion nuclear power  plant proposed by the Puget  Sound Power and Light Co. for  Sedro Wooley, only thirty-  five miles south of the international boundary, would affect the bulk of B.C.'s population if an accident occurred. Added to the potential for human error, one of the  causes of the Three-Mile  Island incident, were considerable geological factors.  Sedro Wooley is near the Mt.

Perhaps it is through an  elderly neighbour who finds the regular  visit of a homemaker a great blessing.  Many of our elderly residents are enabled  to retain their independence in their twilight years through the simple thoughtful expedient of a homemaker's occasional visit. Perhaps it is through an  awareness of the Minibus and the part it  plays in solving the crucial question of  transportation for our elderly and handicapped. Perhaps it is through knowing  sonic young person who has benefitted  through contact with Alternate Education  or a Child Care Worker.  li has been said that a society's worth  can be guaged in the way it takes care of  Its young and its elderly and the Sunshine  Coast Community Services Society, an  organization largely of volunteers, goes a  long way towards easing the lot of the  young and the old in our part of the  world.  For those who directly benefit, of  course, none of this needs saying. They  know what advantages accrue to them  through the good offices of the Community Services Society. The rest of us may  need reminding of the role played by the  Society in our communities. We may  need reminding also that the Sunshine  Coast Community Services Society is part  volunteer and part provincial funding and  that the provincial funding available depends to a considerable extent on the  local funding raised.  Let's make our appreciation concrete.  A Sustaining Membership is $20, and  local businesses can contribute as Corporate members to the extent of $40. It is  little enough to ease the lot of the elderly  and provide some hope for the troubled  young. The cheque from the Coast News  is in the mail this week. Won't you join  us? The Community Services Society  needs and deserves our help.  Nuclear border  We concur with the group of NDP  MLA's who travelled recently to Washington to protest the construction of a  nuclear power plant fifty-five kilometres  from the Canadian border. The group  sent a telegram urging Prime Minister  Joe Clark to take a hand in the discussions since, given the prevailing winds,  any radiation leaks from the Sedro  Wooley plant would come straight across  the border. A major accident would see it  necessary to evacuate the city of Vancouver and yet neither the federal nor provincial governments seem to have anything to say about the location of the  plant.  Can there be any reason for the loca  tion of such a plant in such a place other  than the fact that should anything go  wrong, the ill effects would not be felt by  the State of Washington? Can there be  any justification for our governments  having nothing to say about the matter?  Something like seventy percent of the  people of British Columbia are clustered  in the South-West corner of the province,  which corner would have to be evacuated  in the course of a major accident. Couple  this with the information that the plant  site is on the side of Mount Baker, apparently a still-active volcano, and the conviction grows that someone up there in  the halls of government is asleep at the  switch.  Parochialism and the arena  Director Ed Nicholson of Area B is  opposed to Area B and C supporting the  Sechelt Arena. He says he is being  asked, Why us? and he can't give any  answer. So the tortured saga of the  Sechelt Arena goes on.  Nicholson and the people of Area B  who ask the question are quite right, we  feel. The arena should be supported on a  regional-wide basis if it serves a regional-  wide function.  It begins to be apparent that the piecemeal approach to providing regional  recreation is not satisfactory. Our scattered pockets of population are none of  them large enough to supply decent rec  reational facilities. Fortunately, there  has been in the Regional Board's support  of the Pender pool evidence of late that  some co-operative give-and-take is starting to be possible. The sooner the better,  and not for the Sechelt Arena, poor misplaced entity, alone.  Oh, and by the way, Director Nicholson, on the subject of parochialism, take a  look at the map. You may live on the  Sechelt Peninsula but about two thirds of  the people in the regional district of  which you are the chairman do not. The  Sechelt Peninsula stretches from Sechelt  to Earl's Cove, Ed. A lot of people  around here don't live on it.  .from the files of Coast News  r WWm  V.

Peterson  ���'i^mmmWam*  Musings  John Burnside  Slings & Arrows  >*  **  George Matthews  Please be guided to the  letter on Page Three from my  friend Jack 'The Ostrich' Pope  of Chatelech SeromU*  School, who gallantly remains  In the lists In defence of the  school system. Since my men*  tal meandering) this week  take the form of a letter In  response to Jack's, the reader  may be well advised to contemplate the most recent salvo  from the educational establishment before undertaking  my assault on the same.  My Dear Ostrich: Thank  you for your reply to my most  recent observations on the  school system. It is a pleasure, indeed, to exchange  views with a gallant opponent,  whatever the discrepancy in  views.  Now, with the niceties of  civilized exchange assuaged,  let's get at it. Your letter, sir,  leaves me with a "This is  where I came in" sort of feeling. The figure of three percent for drop-outs is the selfsame figure that got me mad  in the first place. It is arrived  at by counting everyone from  Kindergarten to Grade 12. As  I pointed out to the administrator somewhat senior to  yourself, not many drop out of  Kindergarten.  Surely, even to one of your  sandy perspective, it should  be apparent that a truer figure would be arrived at by  comparing the number of  hopefuls entering high school  with the number who graduate from that institution.  I say thirty percent fewer  graduate than enter. If I'm  wrong, show me but don't  give me the official twaddle  about three percent.  And perhaps, in all fairness, 1 should pause and make  perfectly clear that my main  criticisms are directed at the  high school level. In my experience, and I have taught both  in elementary school and in  high school, the elementary  programs are generally much  better, much more in tune  with the student than is the  case in high school. I believe  that it is at the high school  level that our educational  system runs into serious difficulties and that those difficulties are caused by the administrative set-up.  My friend the Ostrich says  that he does not feel that  'school' beyond the age of  sixteen is for everyone and  says 'our own politicians are  seriously considering a Grade  Ten Leaving Certificate.' Is  not much of the problem delineated here? Why is our professional educator waiting for  the politicians to decide whst  is educationally desirable?  The very attitude of passive  acquiescence on the part of  educators to the political establishment bespeaks autocracy.  ' If any history of this country  worthy of the name were  taught in our schools, my  friend the Ostrich would see  as clearly as I do that at the  present time the educational  system resembles nothing  more closely than the French  Imperial System of the Seventeenth Century. To assure that  the colony would be loyally  obedient to the throne of  France, they used to appoint  two colonial leaders���often  at cross-purposes. The governor was in charge of the army  and was always, as is the way  with army leaders, short of  money. The intendant was in  charge of the budget and considered successful if he kept  the spending down. Both were  automatically at loggerheads  and thus far-away Paris  retained control.  In the school system, it is  the superintendent and secretary-treasurer and the system  is designed, in this case, to  keep the power centralized in  Victoria. The model is of centralized power having its  effect from the top from power  level to power level. Each  level is in turn obsequious and  authoritarian towards the  upper and lower levels respectively and that, Mr. Ostrich,  is authoritarian.  Now all this has little to do  with children, it might well be  objected. But it has a lot to do  with children. The authoritarian structure which sees  determined and single-minded mediocrities reach the  middle levels of power,  ranging from principals to  superintendents, is generally  conducive to low morale on the  part of the only educators  worth talking about. The  classroom teacher is the one  who does the job after all the  jargon has been uttered and  the reports filed. After all is  said and done, education takes  place    in    the    classroom  between teacher and student  and too often the classroom  teacher is bedevilled and harassed by pompous nonentities who can neither teach  nor let others teach in peace  and who draw fat salaries  for administering a bad system.  Giving power to mediocrities to ensure their loyalty is  a tactic as old as dictatorship  and it is the system you work  under, Mr. Ostrich. That's  why morale in teachers is so  often low. That is why you  wait passively for some power  (I.e., politician) to think what  should be done with education.  You say the system is democratic, my dear Ostrich. I say  bullfeathers. I say it is designed in the classic fascist pattern. I have seen too many  excellent teachers harassed  out of the profession by twits  with power. In a classic manifestation you see the cocky,  nay arrogant, administrators  surfacing in the teachers'  association, usually in the  salary committee. The result  is larger and larger differentials between the non-teaching  members of the teaching profession and the poor browbeaten characters who have  the duty of actually teaching.  I say the system stinks.   I  say that, for a start, principals  should get a modest honorar-  Plcasc turn to page three  Kroon first of all classified  Legislative Members into four  categories: the intelligent and  arrogant legislator; the intelligent and humble legislator; the stupid and arrogant legislator; and the  stupid and humble legislator.  He illustrated these concepts  by pointing out, from the gallery, the types he was discrib-  ing.  "See that fella down there  in the three piece suit who's  reading all the time when  somebody is asking him a  question? He's one of your intelligent arrogant types. That  one over there, Mr. Lauk, said  the other day that the arrogant  one, Mr. McGeer, fancied  himself as a wit, but decided  that that judgement was only  half correct.  "Your intelligent, arrogant  member is your most dangerous variety. A man like that  can do anything he wants and  say anything he wants, even  though he ignores everybody  else, and then figure out a  good reason for saying what  he did in the first place. Your  average dictator is one of your  intelligent, arrogant types.  "Then," Kroon continued,  "there's folks like that lady  over there, Karen Sanford.  She's one of your intelligent,  humble types. That's your  best kind of legislator. She's  got enough sense to keep her  mouth shut and her ears open  till she has something important to say, like about that  Reveille  Wake: the silver dusk returning  Up the beach ot darkness brims,  And the ship ot sunrise burning  Strands upon the eastern rims.

"Your other two types get  here more by good luck than  common sense. That one down  there, the one with the tanned  forehead and the five o'clock  shadow, he's one of your stupid, arrogant types. He's not  too dangerous, though;  anybody who knows anything  ignores him and the rest don't  count anyway. Now your  fourth type, the stupid, humble ones, are all too common  in here. In fact your stupid,  humble legislator is the backbone of this great institution.  You can recognize him real  easy. He never says much and  when he does people get sort  of embarrassed."  At this point I asked Kroon  which side of the house contained the most stupid, humble members. He replied thst  neither side had exclusive  rights to that tendency. He  said that in his experience the  government side had more  arrogance but the stupidity  was shared around pretty well  equally. He offered the theory  that whenever the opposition  became the government, the  stupid, humble members were  transformed into stupid, arrogant members and vice  versa for the government who  became the opposition.  He offered that your best  M.L.A. was intelligent and  humble and he pointed again  down into the chamber to  Karen Sanford, who was taking Mr. McGeer to task, snd  pointed out that the only really  interesting debates occurred  between the intelligent, arrogant and the intelligent,  humble types.  The debate centered around  Education Minister McGeer's  efforts to create an open university for B.C. Ms. Sanford  seemed uncomfortable with  the idea that the Minister had  spent S3 million setting up  seven post-graduate courses  which consisted of text books,  audiotapes, phone-in tutors,  and tests, when the same programme could have been set  up through the very effective  Correspondence Branch for  much less money.

Red Cross grateful  An open letter to  Ma Murray of Lillooet  Dear Ma,  This Newspaper should reach you on your ninety second  birthday if neither the Post Office nor the P.G.B. is on strike.  You have many fans and friends who wish you many more birthdays.  There is another generation of kids coming up who have yet  to hear of Ma Murray but not to worry, we'll keep your thoughts  olive and tales of your fighting spirit going. Stories of your exploits become more exciting in the telling from year to year as  befits a legend but we sometimes forget that you are really a-  nother warm human being making the best of this crazy world.  We understand that you've had a less than banner year, what  with nursing your hip and your awful loss of loved ones. If we  could be there to fight beside you, we would, but carry on dear  Ma, you'll never be alone. You have umpteen generations out  here and we are your cheering section. (You know, Gimme an  M, Gimme an A....)  Our gift to you is a promise���to never forget your feisty spirit  and to make sure that the people who eventually make a movie  of your life, as surely they must, tell it as it is and wss.  HAPPY BIRTHDAY, MA.  Joan Huestis Foster  Terry David Mulligan  John Burnside and the  Staff of the Coast News  Musings (continued)  Dear Chicken Little:  Your reply to my letter was  well oiled, as one might expect  from one who earns his gold  by the pen. However, my  carefully trained teacher's eye  detects many errors in your  statements. In fact, I must  give you a score of seven  wrong. As an ex-teacher  yourself, I'm sure you can  relate to that.  I shall address your "essential" statement: "If one  student in three is dropping  out, why is that not cause for  concern". 1 checked our  school's records, and must  correct your "essentii*1"  statement. Less than three  percent of our students  "dropped out" (your label).  I, too, was rather surprised  that the figure was so low. I  do not believe thst "school"  beyond the age of sixteen  years is for everyone. Countless countries, representing  the entire breadth of the political spectrum, agree with me.  In fact, our own politicians are  seriously considering a Grade  10 Leaving Certificate. What  we need to do then is to  provide other avenues of self-  development for our own  youth, as other countries  throughout the world are presently doing. Our society dictates twelve years of "school"  for all, and ostracizes those  who don't fit thst mold by  labelling them "drop-outs".  Although there were many  other errors contained in your  editorial, I must take particular exception to your claims  of autocracy and the lack of  democracy in the schools.  Schools reflect the society  they serve. Society has in the  past few years become more  democratic toward its minorities (including children). Perhaps in your four-to-five-year  absence from the classroom  you hsve failed to notice the  evolution toward democracy  that has taken place among  many educators.  Society, in the face of adversity, must have a scapegoat.  History will provide any number of examples, for there are  many. Our society is up  against the ropes, and schools  are an easy target to strike  back at. This "critic and questioner has" NOT "been driven  out". It is the only means of  survival in this society. My  survival necessitates defending the things I believe in.

Pender clarion call  Editor:  I was appalled to read about  the marina complex planned  for the entrance to Pender  Harbour. 1 though the residents of the area settled that  plan some years ago, with  a resounding rejection. The  reasons are obvious ��� the problem of sewage disposal,  harbour entrance blockage,  and an impossible demand  for water, all this by wheeler  dealer companies with no  interest in the area and its  people except to develop and  make quick dollars, To top  it all off, we would then be  berthing Seattle yachts all  year.

"One time, my partner  and I h- d just finished chopping ti indercut in a big,  leaning dar. Maybe we  should e gone a bit deeper  but we igured it'd probably  be okay. It was solid across  the und -cut with no sign of  a hole I as soon as we cornered u my partner's side,  we realized the butt was hol-  luw. I p " the springboard in  (he from -tch and we started  lu come p my side. All at  once, tli cedar seemed to  explode "he tree, the front-  half of tl itump, the springboard an. I . took off together.  Fortunati I rolled to one  side of t! . falling cedar. I  ended up about twenty feet  down the hill, a bit bruised but  thankful to be alive.  Once I had a tree fall on  top of me but was fortunate  enough to escape with no  more th a lump on my right  collar-bcie. But I wasn't  always that lucky. I had the  ribs on my left side broken  three times. The last time was  thc worst. I had the ribs separated from my breastbone on  that occasion and nobody to  blame but myself. I was bucking at the time and having a  bit of trouble with my power-  saw. The fallers had gotten a  few trees ahead of me and I  was highballing to catch up.  They had felled a big yellow  cedar and it had broken at  about fifty-five feet. It was  maybe thirty inches through  al this point and there was a  bit limb near the break. I  figured I could get a nice,  Pages  from a Life-Log  Peter Trower  clear, forty-eight-foot log and  leave the limb on the broken  chunk. I noticed that the limb  curled over the spot where I'd  have to stand. I should have  bucked it off, but, being in a  hurry, I got careless. I didn't  think the chunk would move  much but when I made the  cut, it fell sideways. The big  limb caught my right shoulder  and pinned the left side of my  chest against the sawn-end of  the log. It drove the breath  right out of me. I swore I'd  had it but the chunk hadn't  moved that far and somehow I  was able to wriggle free."  For most of Bus's career,  nobody wore hard-hats in the  woods. The canvas, bone-dry  hats that proceeded them  provided no protection whatsoever. When the Compensation Board finally decided that  the skull of a logger was no  thicker than anyone else's  and made safety-helmets compulsory, the power-saw fallers  were the first to wear them.  "I had three hard-hats  broken altogether, two by  falling objects���and surprisingly small pieces of wood at  that. The third was broken on  the way to work.  ' 'It was early in the year and  the outfit was anxious to get  some timber down so they  could start another side.  Being the senior set of fallers,  my partners and I had been  called-out to fall a setting on  top of the snow. We were all  in the front-seat of the crummy, heading north along the  Island highway. I was on the  outside, looking at the salt-  chuck. There was a strong  nor'-wester blowing. I remember remarking that we  were probably 'just going for a  ride', meaning that the wind  was too strong for falling timber. Next thing I knew, the  crummy had swerved suddenly toward the beach, left the  road and flopped over on its  side. I was thrown over my  partners and hit my head on  the driver's-side door. The  force of the blow tore the hard-  hat off my head. It felt as  though it had taken my right  ear off in the process. I  reached up, expecting to find  my ear gone but there wasn't  even any blood. Retrieving  my hat, I found it was split  from the brim to the crown. A  truck came down the highway  and screeched to a halt. It was  from the Vehicle Testing Station. 'Have you reported  this accident yet?' queried the  driver. I'm afraid my reply  was neither polite nor printable, My partners had the  same idea as me. We figured  that if we could flop the crummy back on its wheels and  it would still run, we'd be  on our way again, I guess the  guy knew loggers and thought  we'd have something like thst  in mind. But we were pretty  lucky and outside of a shaking*  up, nobody was hurt. I had a  headache for a couple of days  but the hard-hat had saved me  from a serious head-injury."  Thus went Bus's days in the  logging-camps. Around 1961,  the claim at Buckley Bay was  finally finished. Bus decided  to switch careers. He bought  a trailer with his savings and  took-up commercial salmon-  fishing. He still took an occasional falling-contract in the  off-season but the woods  ceased to be a full-time proposition from this point on.  His new occupation afforded him more leisure-time and  Bus was able to resume his  art-career he had continued to  follow sporadically over the  years. He began a series of  paintings based on his recollections of the oldtime camps  and these brought him his  first taste of serious recognition. The paintings were purchased by the Courtenay Historical  Society and a  sub  sequent article about them,  put him in touch with Martin  Keeley, editor of The Lumberman, a logging-trade paper.  At Keeley's urging, Bus took  his long-defunct comic-strip  out of mothballs and began to  totally recraft it for an adult  audience as his own unique  and personal tribute to the  woods that were. When Keeley, after publishing a couple  of episodes, was obliged to  discontinue it for economic  reasons, Bus brought his revitalized strip to Raincoast  Chronicles where it presently  appears. The game had come  full-circle.  www*****  June and I sst in the dimming living-room, thoroughly  impressed by this gruff-  voiced, kindly man who, after  a lifetime of gruelling labour,  is finally being allowed to  realize his long-thwarted  dream. His talent has weathered the years of hard-knocks  and the proofs of his accomplishment lie before us. A  recently-awarded Explorations Grant from the Canada  Council will enable him to  complete this pictorial saga he  subtitles "A Story of Logging  in the Hungry Years". It is  a genuine labour of love that  only Bus Griffiths is equipped  to carry out and it will stand as  a valid historical document.  I feel proud and happy for  him.  But the clock's calling us  south and we have to hit Nanaimo before nightfall. June  takes a couple of photos of Bus  and we say our goodbyes.  Just as we're leaving, a car  drives up and we're briefly  introduced to Bus's wife,  Marg, that good, supportive  lady who kept his ambition  alive through the difficult  times. We promise to return  again and then we're gunning  off down the highway with  good memories to sustain us  I clasp June's hand as the  Island hamlets flash by. It's  encouraging to know that  some stories can still have  upbeat endings.  **-*****************mmm  V*  ^  r^r?y2 GIBSONS LIONS CLUB      #x^��v     r*V  W> GARMN I S��  in the Gibsons Curling Club  wwl  Friday, Aug. 3"  7:00 p.m. to 12 midnight  Saturday, Aug. 4  1:00 p.m. to 12 midnight  Music by RAINBOW RIDERS  Food available  Admission '1.50 per person  Evenings only  Proceeds In aid of Lions* Charities.

Arts Centre opens  The new Arts Centre at the  corner of Trail and Meduss  begins a new era of art for the  Sunshine Coast when it opens  its doors publicly for the first  time on Saturday, August the  4th. Everyone is cordially  invited to come and see for  themselves the cumulative  efforts of many months of  hard work. Refreshments will  be served. The Sunshine  Coast Arts Council is pleased  to be opening with exhibits of  paintings by David Burggraf  and ceramics by Muriel Par-  fitt.  David Burggraf was born in  Chicago in 1943 and, although  he had no formal training in  art, he was staging exhibits in  his home city by the late  1960's. His inspiration comes  from the 16th Century Dutch  school; this led him into developing his skills as a still-life  painter. David feels an empathy for the power that can  emanate from stillness and  tranquillity, and his often  nocturnal effects can bring  about a metaphysical aura.  Though David has been primarily interested in still-  life, his move to Roberts Creek  ten years ago spawned an  interest in landscape painting.  The sense of quiet and subtle  use of colour found in his earlier works are still evident.  Muriel Parfitt has twenty  years' experience with ceramics, which has allowed her  to develop her own distinct  feeling for clay. Most of her  pieces are porcelain, and have  an appearance of delicacy;  each work Is individual, and  not necessarily functional.  Muriel is fascinated by the  subtle forms found in nature,  and often the shapes she creates suggest plants and shells.  Roberts Creek is her summer residence where she has  set up her propane gas kiln,  in 1970. Muriel's reputation is  well-known throughout B.C.  where whe has won seversl  awards. In 1977, she was one  of seven invited to show at the  B.C. Potters Guild Invitational.  One of the objectives of the  Sunshine Coast Arts Council is  to provide a building of multicoloured use with emphasis on  quality in all fields of art. This  includes the visual arts,  music, performing arts, and  crafts. Hopefully, the events  will be diverse enough to include as many sectors of the  community as possible. Local  artists, as well as those from  larger centres, will be featured. Upcoming shows include an exhibit from the  Artlsts's Gallery in Vancouver, .'a juried show of local artists, a mask-making workshop and exhibit, a selection  of local crafts, a music series,  a 'culture wagon' to take  people to Vancouver, plays  and dance performances, plus  much more. The program is  being arranged by a selected  steering committee and is  open to further suggestions.  The Arts Centre will be  open from 11:00 to 4:00, Tuesday through Saturday. Everyone is welcome.  Coast Directory  being updated  New organizations recently  formed on the Sunshine Coast  should make sure that they  get themselves listed in the  Sunshine Coast Directory of  Services. The directory is  presently being updated from  its 1976 format.  To be included in the  directory, new or old organizations should contact Patricia  Lee at the Community Services Offices, 885-5881, Monday through Friday, 8:00���  5:00.  Patricia is working on the  project on behalf of the Community Services Society on a  Canada Works grant during  the months of July snd  August.  ��*���������������*��������������*���*��*  by Rae Ellingham  General Notes: For many of  us, the next two weeks could  be the most fortunate period  of the year.

POTTERY SALE  Handcrafted Stoneware  by Elaine Futterman  SATURDAY,  AUGUST 4th  9:30a.m.���1 p.m.  St. Hilda's Hall.  Sechelt  !  m_______m__________m  mtm_mmm  J__________m___m Bookman's Corner  Hiking Book a must  hy John Mo  If Howard O'Hagan's Wilderness Men, the subject of  last week's offering, inflames  you with a sudden desire for  forays through the foliage,  treks to the timberilne, trudges across the tundra and  marches over the mountains,  you'd be well advised to start  right in your own backyard  with a copy of Hiking Tnlls of  the SunaUne Coaat in hand.  Written by Rita Percheson,  Pam Gross, and Sandy Barrett, and published jointly by  Harbour Publishing of  Madeira Park and Signpost  Books in Washington State,  this little book should prove an  invaluable guide for visitors  and residents alike.  When you live amid great  natural beauty, you can't  help becoming a bit Maee* after  a while and taking it all for  granted. Sometimes s long  spell swsy from your own hills  and woods can jar you into  realizing just how lucky you  are. The enthusiasm of visitors can have the same effect.  Not long ago I was walking out  on deck aboard the Queen of  New Westmlnater, lost in  thought and psying no attention as the islsnds and mountains slipped past. A friend  had returned from Europe a  few days before and subjected  me to the obligatory slide-  show of alps and fjords. As I  was counting my pennies and  feeling sorry for myself, it  suddenly hit me thst I'd just  been sailing through some of  the most magnificent scenery  anywhere in the world, surrounded by tourists  whose  cameras were making more  noise than a field of grasshoppers. I flipped a penny  over the rail for luck, in the  hope that I'd never let myself  become that dense and oblivious again.  No one needs to be told that  the Sunshine Coast is beautiful. But, for visitors in particular, the great trick in such  magnificent country is finding  the right way to get out into it.  Exploring logging-roads csn  be great fon, but busting the  axle of the family station-  wagon in the middle of nowhere is not. Neither is a  head-on encounter with a logging-truck, though you might  have a lot less time to curse  your own stupidity. Being  charged with trespassing is a  lousy way to start a hike and  being sheepishly led out of a  bush by a search party is an  equally poor way to end one.  A friend and I once set out  to climb the Lions. Rsther  than follow the recommended  route, which begins with a  two-hour slog up a switchback  logging-road, we thought  we'd cut out the switchbacks  by going straight up and picking up the road at the top. Five  hours Ister, after thrashing  through heavy undergrowth  and crossing a patch of steep  broken shale that dropped off  into a heart-stopping canyon,  we literally crawled���cut, blistered, branch-whipped, and  utterly exhausted���onto the  road we might have reached  three hours previously by s  pleasant stroll. To this day my  knees get weak when I hear  someone say,"Let's take a  short-cut!"  With a book like Hiking  Trails of the Sunshine Coast  in your pocket, you need never  find yourself in such a predica -  ment. You will always want to  go exploring on your own off  the beaten track, finding your  own secret spots in the hills,  and what this book csn save  you in footsore confusion you  csn devote entirely to that  end. The book covers hikes  that vary in time and difficulty  from the twenty-minute  scramble up the front of Knob  Hill, (not to be attempted, I  can personally attest, on a hot  afternoon after severs! glasses  of beer), to the 6,200 feet,  three-day trek up Red Top.  The major networks of logging-roads that make much of  the terrain so accessible are  well mapped, (Robert Jack's  illustrations are excellent  throughout) and information is  provided for hikers to contact  logging companies for permission and further information.  There are lots of photographs to assure you your  efforts will be rewarded, and  there is even a special section  on cross-country skiiing in the  Mount Elphinstone area.

Deserves support  I Services Society  benefits people  In Christ's service  Bible's high integrity  by Rev. George Inglis  The single most intriguing  aspect of the Holy Bible we  know today, aside from its  magnificence as a faith-history of God's relationship to  man and its enduring importance as a literary masterpiece without peer, is its pitiless honesty in recording the  frailties of mankind in general  and the Israelitic nation in particular.  It is important to recognize  that the preponderance of the  writers were of the Jewish  (Israelite) race, even to the  great apostle to the Gentiles  himself, Paul of Tarsus. Paul's  writings make up the bulk of  the New Testament which is  not covered by the evangelists' four gospels, and  three of them were Jews. The  Old Testament is a borrowed  manuscript, or collection  from the Hebrew writings,  and are an impressive mass oi  narrative, anecdotal, hymnal,  liturgical, oracular and other  prophetic utterances, all ol  which were written by authors  of the Hebrew race.  Consider further, that the  Israelitic histroy was the story  of a small, fractious, and often  despised minority race, which  had known captivity and military occupation by such ss the  Canaanites, Philistines, Assyrians, Greeks, Syrians, Se-  leucids, Persisns, Egyptians,  snd Romans. Their chief  clsim to fame was their selection ss the chosen race by  Yahweh, and this was a dubious and self-styled distinction in the eyes of many of their  neighbors.  Some of the members of the  race who had achieved any  kind of distinction, such as  Abraham, Isaac, Joseph, King  Ssul snd King Dsvid, had  achieved this recognition  largely within the tribal ranks,  and were little known outside  the boundaries of the racial  territory itself. It wasn't until  King Solomon came on the  scene thst the little tribal  group was organized into a nation, and the city of Jerusalem  became a place of world focus.  It was during Solomon's  reign that a great deal of the  recording of the events of the  first 3,000 years of the relationship between Yshweh  (God) and his people took  place, snd it would be perfectly in keeping with msny of the  world's history projects if this  story had singled out the striking and praiseworthy events,  such ss the parting of the Red  Sea and the confounding of  the mighty Egyptian army, the  defeat of the mighty Philistine  army, etc.  Instead, the story is relentless in its honesty, telling of  the hesitation and uncertainty  of Moses, the fractiousness  and rebelliousness of the people of Israel, the revolt at Mt.  Sinai and the execution of  3,000 men by the tribe of Levi.  These and other unsavory aspects of the exodus story continue right on into the conquest and settlement of the  land of Canaan, with pitiless  and   unscrupulous   honesty.  None of the heroes of the  story sre classic heroes in the  romantic style���even the  great King David, hero of  story, song and poem���was  uncompromisingly portrayed  as a lecher, a seducer, an implied slayer of his lover's husband, and various other unpleasant facets. The great  Samson, slayer of the Philistine giant, was hardly the  type of man you would invite  home for supper, as he was  portrayed in the book of  Judges.  Patriarchs, tribal leaders,  judges, prophets, monarchs,  or other noteworthy men who  carried the thread of the relationship between God snd  the Israelites, were never  without the more sordid side,  and yet all of their frailties  were honestly portrayed. By  comparison, think of the motley collection of back-shooters  and cut-throats thst peopled  the American west in the early  days, snd have been glamourized into the legendary Wyatt  Earp, Billy the Kid, Buffalo  Bill, Bat Masterson, etc. and  elevated into the ranks of folk-  hero status through the writings of lurid quasi-history  books, even before the film  and television industries commercialized them Into authenticity.  Consider how this same  vein of honesty continued into  the New Testament, and how  the story of Jesus itself does  not glamourize him into a fearless hero, riding rough-shod  over all opposition, but details  how he bled, how he was spat  upon, how he was tried, how  he wept, snd how he died the  most    ignominious     death  known to the people of his  time���death on a crude cross.  Think of the "rock" of the disciples, Simon Peter, and how  he is shown as a coward who  denies any relationship with  his Lord!  This is the story throughout  the Bible, and yet it went  through the purification  stages of collection, translation, interpretation, editing,  culling, selection and finally  canonization. With not a  tiny alteration in the message's  unflinching honesty.  Even for the most destructive critic, who refused to believe in die influence of the  Holy Spirit in guiding these  writers, editors, compilers,  and authenticators, this would  have to stand out as an outstanding achievement in hon-  estyl  In this day and age of expedience and artifice, this  makes the Holy Bible stand  alone as a book of high integrity and purpose, which  should be read by anyone  whose interests lie in the field  of history, ethics, ethnics,  Mesapotamian culture, archaeology, liturgies, hymnody���  let alone the field of religion I  Each morning and afternoon during the school year,  the Minibus driver cheerfully picks up Aaron Kelly to  transport him to and from Sechelt Elementary School. Although Aaron would prefer to  travel with his classmates on  the regular school bus, this is  not possible. You see, Aaron  is confined to a wheelchair,  which requires the special lifting equipment provided by the  Minibus.  For Mrs. Kelly of Redrooffs  Road, this service makes a big  difference. She can and does,  when necessary, lift Aaron  into the car and then wrestle  the heavy, automated wheelchair into her station wagon,  but it is obviously a strain for  her.  The Kellys are just one of  the Sunshine Coast families  which genuinely appreciate  the Minibus service, sponsored by the Sunshine Coast  Community Services Society.  The Minibus also provides  transportation for Seniors and  to others on the coast who, like  young Aaron Kelly, are in  some way handicapped.  The Minibus service is just  one of many ways in which the  Community Services Society  serves the people of the Sunshine Coast. The Society is  also the agency through which  the Homemakers, the Volunteer Bureau, and the Services  for Seniors and Handicapped  serve the people of the Sunshine Coast.

Some  women go about it as if their  husbands were balloons,  and blow them up; others keep  them constantly in hot water;  others let them freeze by their  carelessness and indifference.  Some keep them in a stew by  irritating ways and words;  others roast them. Some keep  them in a pickle all their  lives. Now it is not supposed  that any husbsnd will be good  managed this way���turnips  wouldn't, onions wouldn't,  and husbsnds won't. But they  really are delicious when properly treated.  In selecting your husband  you should not be guided by  the silvery appearance, as in  buying a mackerel, or by the  golden tint, as if you wanted  salmon. Be sure to select him  yourself ss tastes differ, And  by the way, don't go to the  market for him as the very  best ones are always brought  to your door.  It is far better to have none,  unless you patiently learn to  cook him right. A preserving  kettle of the finest kind of porcelain is the best, but if you  have nothing but earthenware  pipkin, it will do, with care.  See that the linen In which  you wrap him is nicely washed  and mended, with the required amount of buttons and  strings nicely sewed on.  Tie him in the kettle with a  strong cord called Comfort, as  the Duty one is apt to be weak.  Make a clean, strong, steady  fire out of Love, neatness and  cheerfulness. Set him as near  this as seems to agree with  him. If he sputters and friz-  les, don't be anxious; some  husbands do this till they are  quite done. Add a good bit of  sugar in the form of what confectioners call kisses, but no  vinegar or pepper on any account. A little spice seems to  improve them, but it must be  used with good judgment.  Don't stick any sharp instruments into him to see if he is  becoming tender. Stir him  gently, watching the while lest  he should be too close to the  kettle snd so become inert and  useless.  You cannot fail to know  when he is done. If thus treated, you will find him very digestible, agreeing nicely with  you at all times.  Notei Some old fashioned recipes tickle the fancy.

A motion to create a specified area including Areas B  and C to support the arena  was defeated by the final vote  of Chairman Ed Nicholson.  When asked why he had  defeated the motion, Nicholson said he did not agree with  "any specified area".  "People have called me and  said 'Why us?' and I don't  have an answer.  "The regions' are  saying  that recreation is important.  It's now whether or not we  should have a region-wide  proposal or a specified recreation area.

She was actively involved in the preparation of a  project which would connect,  via satellite, many Artie villages in a communication  hook-up in their own languages. After the project received Government approval,  the Tapirisat offered a trip to  Cape Canaveral to watch the  Anik B launch to the winner of  a contest to name the project. David Audlakiak, Bell  Canada's Assistant Commercial Manager in Frobisher  Bay, and Larry Ussak, a trapper from Rankin Inlet both  suggested "Inukshuk", the  name of the traditional stone  cairns used to mark the trail  (D\ SUNSHINE  \jy KITCHENS  FINE CABINETS  886-9411 Gibsons.  when hunting, a word which  when translated literally  means "HereIsm."  Aani accompanied David  and Larry to Florida last December and I recently received  a copy of her description of the  adventure written for the July  issue of Inult To-day, and I  thought others might enjoy it  as much as I did.  The Launching of Inukshuk  "We arrived at Cape Canaveral about eleven at night.  We'd hastily got rid of all our  heavy boots, sealskin mittens,  hats, and scarves. We'd only  taken the little summer gear  we had, considering that in  Frobisher Bay it was sub-zero  ���this was .December. I'd  taken the one warm sweater  which friends who had been to  Florida approved of, although  one friend complained that  even that would be too hot.  "As we got off the plsne we  were expecting really hot weather. We'd all been worried  about not taking our ssndals  and shorts. Our first impression was of the cold fall night.  Gee, but it was cold I David  Audlakiak said to me, 'May-  be our expectations were.too  high!' We burst out laughing at ourselves and then  started worrying that we  might not be adequately dressed!  "Joseph Pudlayat of  Taqramiut Nipingnat was  waiting for us at the airport as  were the Telesat officials and  PR people. After checking in  at the hotel, we were anxious  to start exploring Florida and  we were also starving, so we  went hunting for a restaurant.  Someone said that there was  one a mile away. We were  only too happy to walk that  mile, our first sights of Florida. I had to borrow Larry's  coat to keep warm because it  was so cold, but we ran around  jumping in the air hugging  palm trees, touching thorned  leaves, trying to get the feel of  Florida. We were hoping we'd  find one of those exotic little  jungle-like huts where they  served exotic foods and  drinks, Florida style. But no,  that restaurant was your regular hamburger and fried chicken joint. 'Oh well,' we said,  ' tomorrow we'll rent a car, go  to Disneyland and eat and  drink exotically.'  "The next morning at ten  o'clock sharp we had rented a  car, so anxious were we to be  on our way. It was s beautiful warm day. We got lost a  few times, but finally we were  on the right track, the long,  long road to Disneyland.  "We stopped several times  to take pictures of the Florida  scenery, the palm trees, the  thousands of little swallows  that circle certain areas and  even dead snakes. On the way  to Disneyland we stopped at  the Sea World. A friend in  Frobisher had told David  these fantastic stories about  Sea World and so we went in  there. First stop, be sure to  take pictures of the signs and  of ourselves hugging and kissing the palm trees. We  went to see Shamu, the 7,000  pound killer whale, who was  just so fsbulous we all fell in  love with him. He did tricks at  show time which just fascinated us. We spent the whole  afternoon walking around Sea  World trying to see everything, not to mention trying to  buy everything 11 It wss sbout  five p.m. when we reluctantly  made our way out to continue  to Disneyland. We made it  there just an hour before they  closed, much to our dismay.  "Maybe because of our  disappointment, we immediately lost each other. We  spent the first half hour lost,  looking for each other while  trying to take a look at everything. The second half hour  we spent looking at the picture  history of the man who made it  all, Walt Disney.  "The next day was the  launch night and everyone  was up early and at the beach,  in foil dress because we  hadn't taken any beach gear.  The waves from the ocean  were so strong that by the  time it came to shore and  pulled back you had a sensation of the earth moving  under your feet as the sand  was sucked into the ocean. We  took pictures of each other  jumping in the water and  waving our arms with the  water birds flying around us.  In the afternoon all the launch  group was taken on a tour of  die Kennedy Space Centre....  That took the whole afternoon.  After a brief rest period, we  were taken to the place from  where we would watch the  launch. It had been a bit rainy  that day and clouds gathered  by the evening. There was  speculation as to whether or  not the launch would be possible. But then they said  'Yes', and a few minutes later the countdown started. We  were sitting tightly on our  benches hardly daring to move  except to excitedly take pictures. '4-3-2-1-0-' then there  was fire, smoke and light for  miles and miles and the most  tremendous roar of engine  noise and the rocket was off I  "It shot up and disappeared  into the clouds within seconds,  but the whole thing was the  most exhilarating spectacle  we'd ever seen. We just  smiled and laughed and just  sbout went crazy with excitement. I felt like dancing, singing and crying all at the same  time. It was beautiful tt  "Afterwards there wss a reception courtesy of Telesat....  We met all kinds of people and  talked with them about the  Inuit Tapirisat and Inuit  cause. There were people  from Germany, Australia, the  States and Canada.  "Our last day we spent at  the beach. It was nothing less  than sensational. Larry and  David rented a surf board and  tried to learn how to surf. I  walked for miles looking for  shells to take back home. All  too soon, we were on our way  back up north to the below-  zero temperatures and the  snow and ice. Florida was my  first trip outside Canada and  there is just one word that  says it all: SENSATIONALI!  "When I went back home to  Inukjuak for Christmas, I  tried to convince my parents to  move to Florida so I could visit  them more often���but of  course no such luck I There  was just one disappointment  in this whole trip. We saw no  Indians. That land of theirs  is so beautiful, so huge and  so different. The air is rich in  itself. It is no wonder that the  Indians went to war to retain  their rightful ownership of  that beautiful land. But it was  such a shame not to meet any  native people at all."

No sooner had the government given  Sechelt a rabbit punch, than  they were embarking on yet  another energy fiasco with the  lack of foresight that has become the hallmark of the  government's energy policy.  The government intends to  export 60 million cubic feet  of natural gas daily to the  A lovely double ring marriage was solomnized by Father Franks on June 30, 1979 in  St. Mary's Catholic Church,  Chilliwack, B. C. when Harold  Stromquist of Chilliwack took  Mava Schneider of Gibsons for  his bride.  The radiant bride, gowned  in a white full-length nylon  sheer over net-and-satin  gown, featuring applique'd  roses complementing self-  pleats down the front of the  skirt and continuing around,  full-length train and long  tight cuffs for the full sleeves,  was escorted down the aisle  by her father, Gus Schneider.  Before giving his daughter to  the groom he raised the veil  and gently kissed her snd then  placed his hand in Harold's.  Her bouquet was of white  roses and peach-tinted carnations. Her only jewellery  was a diamond necklace���  a gift from the groom. A  fringe-tip veil complemented  her gown.  Mava's attendants were  dressed in peach gowns with  matching boleros and carried  yellow Gladiolias. They were  Maria Schneider, maid of  honor,  and  Debbie  Strom'  American market with a future  provision for export of up to almost double thst amount.  Even B.C. Hydro has opposed  the sale of the natural gas, a  position it adopted at the National Energy Board hearings  currently underway in Calgary. Hydro maintained the  exports would jeopardize  future gas supplies to Vancouver Island and the lower  mainland and could mean  price increases for some  274,000 customers. For Sunshine Coast residents this is  especially bitter medicine as a  gas pipeline to the Island  might have averted the need  for a transmission line in the  first place. While Hydro and  the government presented opposite views at the NEB  hearings, this embarrassing  contradiction prompted a  flurry of behind-the-scenes  politics which resulted in  Hydro abruptly terminating its  presence at the hearings.  The government's intention  to export additional natural  gas at the expense of the  future energy requirements  can only be interpreted as a  scheme for quick cssh. Energy  Minister James Hewitt has repeatedly justified the export  plan on the grounds it will  generate $75 million in yearly  revenues. What Mr. Hewitt  ignores is that the asking price  of B.C. natural gas slated to  increase only to $2.80 per  thousand cubic feet on August  1 is not even a semblance of  the fair market price. It should  be substantially above $3,  the experts say. B.C., as  Canada's second largest natural gas producer, already hu  lost in excess of $60 million in  potential revenues for the first  six months of 1979. That figure in the second half of the  year will climb even higher  because of the government intention to export additional  natural gas.  The 1979 projected revenue  loss of over $125 million is no  thing more than a B.C. subsidy to American consumers.  This policy reminds us of the  previous SocialCredit government which sold natural gas to  American purchasers at a  price one-third less than our  own B.C. customers were paying for our own gas.  Natural gas is truly a nonrenewable resource. Once gss  reserves are exhausted both  revenues and energy flow no  more. Thanks to the government's confused energy policy  that time may well arrive prematurely and the ringing of "I  told you so" will offer little  solace. Why is this government so anxious to sell gas so  cheaply to the U.S.? Surely we  could use the money a fair  market price would bring���  perhaps $120 million or more  extra in a year���for our hard-  pressed hospitals and schools?

The people who live in these  parts have known the problems all along. Now that the  public outside Is aware of  some of them, perhaps solutions will be found..  One of the problems is that  it is difficult to get doctors to  set up practices in such communities. Perhaps then we  should be looking to the model  set by the people of Queen  Charlotte Islands who have an  effective Health and Human  Resources Board that actually  hires doctors to provide on-call  regular service. A similar  board hires doctors on staff  in the James Bay district of  Victoria.  These organizations are, incidentally, two to three remaining resource boards left  over from the days of the former NDP government, most  of the others having been done  away with in 1977.  www  1 wu pleased by the positive response of Defence Minister Allan McKinnon to my  suggestion thst the two new  helicopters being purchased  for coastal air-sea rescue work  be stationed at Port Hardy  rather than Victoria. As I  pointed out to the Minister in  a letter I made public, there is  a serious gsp lis rescue facilities between Comox and  Ketchikan, Alaska, while the  south coast has adequate resources to draw on.  We are still waiting for the  Minister to definitely decide to  go ahead with a mid-coast location for the new helicopters.

Contrary to the contentions of the  Encyclopedia BritannJca, they  do indeed grow north of San  Francisco. If any gardener on  the Sunshine Cout is growing  artichokes, would she or he be  kind enough to call me at the  Coast News u I would love to  try to make a cutting just for  fun or indeed buy a plant. I  had a friend in Victoria who  ended up with a veritable  walk-through forest of them  and kept the entire neighbourhood generously supplied. I  suppose their growth could actually be a profitable venture  as well.  The artichoke flower picked  and stuck in a vase without  water is unsurpassed, for  those of us who are fond of  dried flower arrangements,  to carry us through the turgid  rainy seasons. Mother Nature  has sprayed it gold and lt will  retain its purple center for  many months.  My thanks to lovely Nonie  Hill for naming a few local  wildflowers for me. As is now  obvious, I am wild about wild-  flowers and since I am myself  a transplant, I am unfamiliar  with many. The gorgeous  evening Primrose had me in  thrall last week along with its  obvious first cousin, a similar  shorter white variety. These  lovely generous yellow blooms  were cascading throughout  every ditch and byway on the  Coast; they were clustered at  every post-box and gate I saw  but no one seemed to know  their nsme. Thank you,  Nonie. I intend to spend a  great deal more time with  wildflowers in the future.

Council meets ratepayers  by Carol Berger  A special meeting was held  between the Sechelt Village  Council and the Sechelt Ratepayers' Association on July  26.  Discussion regarding "nutters in general concern.,,  some of the things said over  the lut couple of weeks" wu  held In camera for two hours.  Representatives from the  Ratepayers wanted "more input into the Community  Plan," according to Clerk-  Treasurer Shanks.  It wu pointed out to the  ft  p  Ratepayers that the community as a whole had input by the  committee of eight and that it  was "too late now".  According to Ratepayers  President Chuck Dowman,  Council is "willing to discuss  it and allow more input".  "We'd like input to be on  more of a one-to-one basis snd  put the taxpayers' opinion up  front," Dowman ssid in an  interview following the meeting.  A letter hu been sent from  Victoria to the Sechelt Ratepayers' Association dealing  with the  "fact-finding mis  sion" made by two representatives of the Department of  Municipal Affairs on July 20.  The contents of the letter sent  on July 26 should be known  sometime this week.  In a telephone conversation on July 26 between Clerk-  Treasurer Shanks and Dave  Conway from Administrative  Services, it was indicated that  no further investigation of the  Sechelt council would be necessary.

Backlog awaits  Caution required around power    Sechelt Planner starts this week  M. .   ,*.���! nJ,������ At the time of Doug Roy's   he was Senior Planning Offi-  to out in five davs a wee  Five young British Columbia boys can vouch for the importance of being cautious  around electricity.  Three of the youngsters suffered severe burns in separate recent mishaps. Two  others were luckier but narrowly escaped being "fried  like a hot dot", in the words of  a rescuing policeman.  The four incidents dramatically underline B.C. Hyro's  program of constant warnings  and safety education.  In South Bumaby in May,  an inquisitive twelve-year-old  boy used his father's hacksaw  on a ground-level Hydro kiosk  near his home. The boy sawed  through the lock-hasp of case-  hardened steel, then opened  the box and reached in with  the saw.  Inside was a transformer  carrying electricity at 7,200  volts to serve an underground  circuit. As the saw touched  the wires, there was an ex  plosion-like sound and a short  circuit went through the boy,  knocking him out and cutting  off electric service in the area.  The unconscious lad was taken  to hospital with head, arm, leg  and back burns.  In late April, near Victoria,  two seven-year-old boys  climbed to the top of an  eighty-foot-high transmission  tower, which supported wires  carrying electricity at 138,000  volts. Fortunately, the boys  were rescued unharmed by a  Hydro crew and an RCMP  constable. But the policeman  told them in graphic terms  what could have happened. ���  "If you had touched the  wires," he said, "you would  have been fried like a hot  dog."  In mid-April, a thirteen-  year-old suffered severe burns  when his kite contacted a  powerline near Kamloops.  The victim's kite was attached  to copper wire, through which  Nuclear danger  continued from page one  insurance to $560 million for  nuclear accident damage at  present and it is obvious  considerably more economic  damage than that level would  be sustained by B.C. in a  "worst case" scenario at  Sedro Wooley.  The brief also noted that  nuclear energy is extraordinarily expensive to produce  geologic and geographic  factors connected with the  proposed site. However, the  NDP brief did step beyond the  strict terms of reference to  point out that the Bonneville  Power Administration has  completed a study vliich  shows that conservation pol  icies alone would provide  enough power to meet the  Pacific Northwest's energy  growth needs to 1995 without  the construction of any new  power plants.  "It is, therefore, our position that in terms of economics  as well as safety, a nuclear  plant at Sedro Wooley would  be a terrible mistake," the  brief said.  ' 'The NDP policy is opposed  to nuclear plants anywhere  because there is no technology available to guarantee  that mishaps will not occur  or to provide safe, permanent  disposal of wastes that will  remain radioactive for thousands of years."  the electricity ran to ground.  At Logan Lake, southwest  of Kamloops, a seven-year-old  boy received second-degree  electrical burns to his hands  and arms after touching live  25,000-volt equipment in a  Hydro kiosk that had been  pried open. This latest incident occurred on July 2.  J.A. Deptford, manager of  Hydro's safety engineering  department, urged parents to  make sure their children are  aware of the potential hazards  of electrical equipment.  "These incidents should  have been avoided���and they  could have been avoided if the  children involved had had  proper training and knowledge," he said.  "Electricity is a useful servant, but it can be extremely  dangerous if not treated wise-  ly."  To help educate children to  be cautious near electricity,  Hydro has developed a continuing safety program with  the theme, "Be Electrically  Alert", which to date has been  presented to approximately  100,000 pupils in B.C. schools.  Designed for youngsters in  grades two to eight, this program consists of posters, a  sixteen-minute cartoon on  videotape, and comic books in  which students can describe  their own safety impressions  and experiences.  The program is available  through Hydro's six regional  division offices located in  Prince George, Terrace, Vernon, Newton, Victoria, and  Vancouver. The videotape is  also available in reel-to-reel or  cassette through the Hydro  film library in Vancouver.  B.C.

After the acceptance of  former Village Planner Doug  Roy's resignation, one of the  reasons given for the acceptance was a shortage of planning funds.  When asked how the Village  plans to pay the new planner,  Coast News was told by Clerk-  Treasurer Shanks, "We hope  that most of it will be paid by  developers in their applications for rezoning." The current cost of rezoning applications is $50.  At the time of Doug Roy's  resignation, $7,000 of the  $9,000 planning budget set in  January was gone. As of  October, council can change  monies from one area to another as part of the Municipal  Act.  According to Shanks, CouncU also plans to apply to the  Provincial Government for"  planning funding in the near  future.  Out of five applications,  Walton, 47, of D.B.

The proposed site for the  program is a 9.7 acre strip of  provincial land between the  Roberts Creek Park and B&K  Road.  Funding for the training  ground will come from the  Provincial and Federal governments and Lions club District A-B-C-D and H, according to Godfather Joe Benner.  If approved, the project  would be the only one of its  kind in Canada. Expertise for  training of the dogs would  come from as far as Germany  and England.  "It's a three-year project  before we can put a dog on the  field. Only five percent.of  every batch of pups can be  trained," explained Benner.  The breeds of dogs will be  purebred German Shepherds  and Black Labradors.  Along with the announcement of their proposed project  at the July 26 meeting of the  Sunshine Coast Regional District, the Club was also given  approval by the -Board to  develop the Roberts Creek  Park.  On August 2, members will  meet for a work party to finalize development plans to be  presented to the Regional  Board for further approval.

Jamie the  Conservation Officer got a  call from people out at Welcome Beach that they had  found an abandoned youngster on the beach.  It still had part of the umbilical cord attached, so it was  only a day or two old. It was  force-fed overnight and the  next day Jamie contacted the  Aquarium in Vancouver. According to the curator, that's  about the only way you can  feed them at first. Apparently  when the mother feeds them,  the milk is forced into their  mouths and the young have  no instinct to suck.  The young pup was flown  over to the Aquarium where it  will stay until it is able to feed  itself; then it will be released.  This is the fourth one they  have had this year.  Fishing  Since catching a nice-sized  spring a week or so ago, I've  had a one-track mind. Ninety-  eight percent of my conversation has been about my  adventures on the old briny.  After a week or so of this,  people are starting to bring  up other topics; maybe I'm  getting boring.  Oops, one more fishing  story just came in a minute  ago. I can't resist telling it.  It's the Sun Derby today  (Sunday), so we phoned  Smitty to see if anything exciting was happening. He  told me to call Colleen Morrison of Langdale.  Last night���the day before  the derby���she and her hus-.  band headed down towards  Port Mellon, to be ready at  daybreak for the big one.  On the way down, they  stopped to pick up some rock  cod and you guessed it, they  both hooked into salmon at the  same time. The lines got  tangled and they had to cut  one of them loose. The one  that they kept on the line  made it into the boat an hour  and a half later and weighed  in at thirty-three pounds.  Needless to say, they stayed  * out overnight and fished the  same area next morning, and  caught nothing but dogfish.  Last year she caught a twenty-  six pounder the day after the  derby. Perhaps we should see  if we can change the date and  make her the first woman to  win it.  Apparently there is good  cutthroat fishing at Rainy  River; a couple of people from  the Wildlife Branch or something like that went up last  week and were picking them  up on flies.  Odds V Ends  I got a call from Dorothy  Wright on Hanbury Road,  telling me where there may be  another heron nesting site. I  haven't been able to confirm  it .yet, but this is the type of  information that the Fish and  Wildlife is looking for in order  to get a clearer picture of  the birds' movements. So if  you know of any, give me a  call.  Coyotes have been seen in  the King Road area in Gibsons; this was from Rob  Leask, who also tells me that  for all my gallivanting around  on the water, I missed out on  seeing a pod of killer whales  travelling through.  That's all; I want to go  fishing, so if you have anything interesting happen, give  me a call at 886-2622/886-7818  or 886-9151. ta.  ,^B^  &jj^tiim? ....

Mrs. Muriel Eggins,  Worthy Matron, gave a few  words of welcome before  introducing our Convenor  Mrs. Jakie Donelly who  passed to Mrs. Mary Gordon  (a past Matron of Mt. Elphinstone) the privilege of describing to a most receptive  audience the many activities  and special projects in which  the chapter is involved. She  then declared the tea officially  open in her own gracious  manner.

The annual Canfor Tournament was won by W. Sneddon, Jr., who shot a gross 78.  Second prize went to Wilf  Reiche with a score of 82. Low  net winners were Luke Lappin  and C.Jones.  The annual RCMP Tournament was held on Thursday with our stalwarts chasing  birdies and' pars instead of  speeders and lawbreakers.  Seymour Golf & Country  Club returned our visit last  week. A good day was  enjoyed by all with Sunshine  reason to be proud ot her  members, and we are certain  the customers were appreciative of their efforts.  Lending an extra bit of  enjoyment to the tea was our  favourite fortune teller Mrs.  Eva Lyons who fascinated all  those who patronized her  special table.  It was a pleasure to welcome so many out-of-town  visitors besides our many  faithful supporters from the  Sunshine Coast. Greeting old  friends and neighbours  seemed to be a major pleasure  and some of those we were  able to see were Mesdames  Margaret Swan, Margaret  Trueman, Molly McColl,  Alice Brooke (Grand Secretary  of B.C.), Mr. Stan Trueman,  Mrs. Leona Gatz, son Ron and  Leona's two great granddaughters Vera Milne, Margaret and Jim Foster, and a  contingent from Grace Chapter #39, Powell River.  Special mention should be  made of the great assistance  provided by the men of the  Chapter���setting up for us  outside and then helping to  move us inside, setting up  again, proceeding to . wash  mountains of cups, saucers,  spoons, and all those things  used at teas, smiling cheerfully through it all and then  ending up congratulating us  on a job well done. Thank you  so much, gentlemen. .  Coast winning the event by a  score of 20 to 10. The total  score of these two matches  was 30 to 27.  A beautiful landscape painting by J. Budd and donated to  the Golf Club for this special  event now adorns our clubhouse wall. It will be awarded  to the winning club annually.  It is remarkable how well  the fairways on the golf course  are holding up with the long  stretch of dry weather and the  busy summer season.  Eric Bauer and his crew are  to be congratulated for their  fine efforts under the director  ship of Larry Farr, Emma  Drohman, and Isobel Barnes,  who are still producing their  tasty sandwiches, muffins,  pies, and tarts, in spite of the  hot weather encountered this  last while.  It has been reported that  Bill Van Westen of Sunshine  Coast Chrysler of Sechelt has  offered the Sunshine Coast  Golf and Country Club a prize  of $1,000 in merchandise tc  any player playing in the Sea  Cavalcade Tournament, Aug*  ust 4 and 5, who can make a  hole-in-one of the fifth hole.

SSSSSHBS^  .���:���  warn  w_mm_________________\ Education: Should press  watch school boards?  by Cynthia Parsons  Education Editor of  The Christian Science Monitor  The following Is reprinted  from THE CHRISTIAN SCIENCE MONITOR of Monday,  July 9,1979.  MIAMI BEACH-Walter  Cronkite speaking: "The  free press, after all, is the central nervous system ofa democratic society. No true democracy, as we understand the  term, can exist without it.  "The press may be irres  ponsible at times, obstreperous, arrogant, even cruel,  when innocent individuals are  caught in the riptide of damaging publicity. But a free,  unintimidated, and unregulated press is democracy's early  warning system against both  the dangers of democracy's  own excesses and the approach of tyranny."  The time and place; Miami  Beach, April 22, 1979, at the  annual convention of the National School Boards Association (NSBA).  More than one panel session at this year's NSBA convention dealt with the media���  and particularly with the relationship between public  school board members and the  press.  That it's not a comfortable  relationship was easy to determine. While many said they  agreed in part with broadcaster Cronkite, they disagreed  vigorously with the notion  that the press has the right  to be irresponsible.  I attended two panel ses  sions dealing with media  relations, and spoke with more  than a score of school board  members about the press.  In general, the complaints  drowned out any faint voices  of praise.  School bawd misconception  At the same time, it was  obvious that many school  board members made the serious mistake of thinking they  were conducting private business while determining  policy for the spending of  public money for public  schools.  At one session, when a  board member said he was  shocked at the local press's  request for a salary list of all  school employees, he had to  oe reminded that such a request was well within the  rights of the media as these  were public servants paid out  of public funds.  And it's here, most clearly,  that many of the irritations  occur. What the press does  with what it learns about how  the schools are managed and  operated is the subject oi  much controversy.  Some school board members gave some good hints  about how to "care and feed"  the press. In one school district, each meeting starts with  commendations and the  awarding of certificates to  students and parents who  have done something special.  Over time this has become a  "media event", and highly  popular in the community.  The press, which the spokesman said earlier had Ignored  school board meetings unless  they contained confrontations  and verbal jousts, now covered all meetings as they were  of great public interest,  nphaidsehttaas  All board members present  at that hearing noted how  cleverly that school board  managed to get "good" news  in.  One man asked, and he  chuckled when he spoke:  "How do you deal with the  investigative reporter short of  punching her in the nose?"  He didn't like the advice  he got���to tell the reporter  Coast News, July 31,  whatever she wanted to know.  To let her sit in on any and all  sessions.  Another board member  wanted to know what to do  when a reporter called for  individual assessment of what  had gone on at a meeting. She  received conflicting advice.  Some said: "No comment"  would be the smartest answer.  Others thought it might work  to put forth your point of view  in hopes it would get into the  press and influence decisions  at the next board meeting.  Not a few thought that strategy would backfire, and that  no one should do much of  anything to make the press's  job easier.  1979 11.  A constant thread appeared  to run through much of the  discussion���and that was that  the press should promote the  schools (and the policies of the  school board), and in a sense  be an advocate. Members of  the press tried valiantly to say  that that was not the job of the  press.  That a good press was a  watchdog.  An implication, along the  lines of Walter Cronkite's  remarks, that the press is  some sort of warning system.  But this suggestion was  countered by a board member  and applauded roundly by  all his colleagues: "The press  is what needs the watchdog-  gingl"  JWWCTlfff!

At this session our assignment was to  develop an immigration policy  for Canada.  Each year thousands of  people immigrate to Canada  and the federal government  must control this flow. The  flow of immigrants is controlled by a National Immigration Policy. At the recent  session of the Forum for  Young Canadians, one hundred senior high school students were placed in this decision-making position. Our  goal was to teach a concensus  on one of five suggested  immigration policies. This  was a challenge each student  accepted with enthusiasm.  This topic afforded us the opportunity to discuss matters  other than solely immigration,  for example, energy, urban  affairs, urban sprawl, native  rights, Northern affairs,  agriculture, and natural resources.  During the course of our  discussion, several pertinent  questions came up that we  had to address. A few of them  were: How would an increase  in immigration affect our  dwindling natural resources?  Where would people settle? If  they settled in the cities, how  would urban sprawl affect our  vital agricultural lands?  Were these New Canadians  prepared to accept out customs and learn our languages?  These questions and many  others were discussed and  answered by the students.  At the conclusion of our discussion, we had to decide  which immigration policy  Canada should adopt. We had  five policies to select carefully  from the policies were:  a) 0 net immigration; b)  50,000 net immigration; c)  100,000 net immigration; d)  250,000 net immigration; e)  500,000 net immigration. We  now realized that our choice  could cause either an increase  or a decrease in our population. If we were to choose  policy A, B, or C, then the  result would be a population  increase. You must realize  that approximately 70,000  people depart Canada yearly.  You must also consider the  baby boom of the 50's and the  increased use of birth control.  After careful consideration,  our group's choice was policy  C. This was a difficult choice  because some members of the  group favoured policy A or B,  while others favoured policy D  or E. When the groups  gathered again at the conclusion of group discussions, our  group was amazed to see that  the unanimous choice of each  group was policy C, net immigration of 100,000.  At the present time 100,000  people immigrate to Canada  yearly. Canada's refugee  quota is now 40,000 people  annually.  I found this exercise exceedingly interesting for the following reasons: a) It placed  me and my fellow students in  an actual policy-making position; b) The steps we took to  reach our goal were approximately the same as the federal government would hive  taken; and c) Most importantly, the exercise offered students from across our vast  country the opportunity to  discuss issues of concern  to all Canadians.  The following day we travelled to Parliament Hill for  a discussion on the Central  Agencies. We were received  by Mr. J.C. Tait, the Assistant Secretary to the Cabinet  of the Privy Council Office.  The central agencies are: the  Privy Council Office, the  Prime Minister's Office, and  the Treasury Board.  One of the many things  we learned was that the main  function of the Privy Council  Office is to give the Prime  Minister advice and analysis  on the totality of his policies.  Our discussion answered such  questions as: Is the Privy  CouncU Office partisan? Is  the P.C.O. politically sensitive?  The other central agency  we discussed was the Prime  Minister's Office. I found this  discussion particularly fascinating. The staff of the  P.M.O. consists of approximately sixty people. The staff's  duties range from clerical  work to advising the P.M. on  policy decisions. Members of  the P.M.O. have no powers  vested in them other than  those vested in them by the  Prime Minister. The students  asked such questions as: "Is  the P.M.O. a mini-cabinet?"  The answer to that particular  question is No, the members  of the staff are only the P.M.'s  personal advisors. Due to lack  of time, we were able to study  the functions of the Treasury  Board. *  The morning continued with  a discussion on Federal-  Provincial Relations. The  speaker was Mr. Nicholas  Gwyn. Mr. Gwyn is presently  the Assistant Secretary to the  Cabinet for Federal-Provincial  Relations. Earlier this year,  there was a Federal-Provincial  Conference and we analysed  their discussions. Some of the  topics we discussed were  provincial control over communications, natural resources, and also a constitutional amending formula.  In the afternoon we discussed "transfer of power".  We were met by Mr. F. Drum-  mie, the senior Assistant  Secretary to the Cabinet (Machinery of Government) of  the Privy Council Office. One  of the many questions asked  was, "How do the newly  elected members and chief  civil servants know what to do  at the time of change of government?" The answer is  simple: Read the government publications.    The fed-  ROMAN  CATHOUC SERVICES  Rev.

Another question  asked was, "What happens  to the past government's  documents?" The cabinet  secretary collects all documents. Any information the  new government needs is  released to them by the secretary. The secretary is only  permitted to reveal the facts  pertaining to the document  in question. All documents  are stored st the National  Archives. After approximately thirty years, the papers  are removed and are placed on  display for public inspecion.  Our next meeting was with  the Honourable Renaude  Lapointe, Speaker of the Senate since September 12,1974.  bTMr.RctnrtteFoTerJ0^  Gulf  ISJafldS \]dte  Fortier was appointed Clerk  of the Senate and Clerk of Parliament in 1968. This session  was held in the Senate Chambers. The chambers were  being redecorated but even  with the presence of scaffolds  it remained a magnificent  room. We were also shown  Mme. Lapointe's office.  Mme. Lapointe proudly displayed the numerous gifts  presented to her by governments around the world.  During our discussion on  the Senate, we learned  what the prerequisites are to  become a senator. Some of  these are that one must own  $4,000 worth of real property,  and must also be of a minimum age of thirty years. The  Canadian Senate is comprised of some of Canada's  most prominent politicians.  One of the most outstanding  of these is Senator Eugene  Forsey.  After dinner we concluded  our second day by playing a  game of soccer. The teams  were Eastern Canada versus  Western Canada. The end  result was a one-point win by  Eastern Canada.

The following article is  reprinted bom THE GULF  ISLANDS DRIFTWOOD of  Wednesday, June 27,1979.  by Jezrab Hearne  Is British Columbia to have  a nuclear future? Robert Bonner, chairman of B.C. Hydro,  addressing a luncheon meeting of the Victoria Chamber of  Commerce, says yes.  Painting the usual pro-nuclear picture of gloom and  doom, Bonner told the assembly, that we will run out of oil  in six years' time, this necessitating a massive conversion to electricity. He described the trend for greater  electrical needs in B.C. and  declared that we just have to  accept the fact that "nuclear  is inevitable, regardless of its  consequences".  Just what these consequences were, he never did elaborate on. Very briefly he  alluded to the possibility of  re-orienting our energy policy  towards conservation   ethics  and renewable sources. When  he did so, it was in a tone of  mockery and contempt. He  slurred the efforts of environmentalists struggling to  keep B.C. safe for people, as  the "strident lobby" of a  "bunch of people" who  "seem against just about  everything".  FOR THE U.S.  At one point in his delivery,  Bonner himself was hard-  pressed to justify his claim to  such exorbitant power  forecasts. Then he quickly  told the group, though he  Secondly, this gives Canada  sufficient time to embark on a  comprehensive program of  energy conservation and implementation of alternate  technologies, such as solar  power for light and heat, bio-  mass for automobile fuel,  windmills and tidal pumps for  localized electricity generators. With such a change in  its energy policy, Canada  would not only not freeze in  the dark, but its standard of  living would improve I  PRESERVATION  Thirdly, it is sheer slander  Come cry with me  By Ann Napier  Write Bex 3, c/o Coast News  Dear Ann,  Despite all my efforts I cannot gain weight.

The digester oper-'  ating floor reached a temperature of 112 degrees last week,  according to Gant.  Regarding vacations,  ground rules have not been  negotiated since 1971. New  negotiations on vacations  will start in September  through October for 1980.  An unresolved grievance is  company hiring policies.  "We told management that  the time is coming to have a  showdown���not enough people are hired from the coast,"  said Gant.  Union negotiators would  like a preferential hiring  policy to enable local people  and high school students to  acquire more permanent and  weekend work.  In the current Canfor contract, after thirty days of employment the worker is classified as a permanent worker.  "We're looking into it, waiting for the Labour Relations  Board to answer," explained  Gant.  According to Earle, "We  don't have any part-time  workers. Summer employees  are classified as full-time employees. If these summer employees choose to stay on they  can. In the collective agreement they have certain  rights.  "We set up a process aa  free from bias as we possible  j can," Earle said.  1 Regarding working condi-  1 tions within the plant, Earle  j said that major changes have  j been made over the past five  years.  Dave Gant commented on  issues from past Bull Session  Agreements that had taken  two-and-a-half years for completion.  Vice-President of Pulp and  Mill Manager Bill Hughes did  not attend the meetings as he  has gone on vacation.

Coast News.July 31,1979  On becoming a Rover  Ramblings of a Rover  by Dee Cee  The long, dreary days of  school dragged on. I was beginning to think they would  never end when a new and  startling change took place,  something entirely unforeseen  and unexpected that was undoubtedly to have a profound  effect on mc and on the life I  intended to follow. Not only  did il change my whole outlook on life but it added a new  dimension to ever) thing I did  or thought. Up to now 1 had  regarded the opposite sex not  exactly with disfavour, I respected my mother, my sister  and thc various aunts and cousins 1 came in contact with,  but my attitude towards girls  and women was epitomized in  the words of Kudyard Kipling���they were simply "a  rag, a bone and a hank of  hair" and 1 just wasn't interested.  The William Gibbs School  for Girls was next door to  the grammar school 1 attended  and only a high stone wall with  broken glass on the top (quite  a deterrent to any thoughts of  climbing over it and mingling  with the squealing females)  separated us. The authorities  had so arranged it that when  the recess periods for the girls  occurred we boys were safely  back in class and, presumably,  immersed in our studies of  the various subjects on the  curriculum. However, from  the upper windows of the  school, although it was forbidden, one could, if one stood up  when the master's back was  turned, gaze down into the  girls' playground and see  them walking around the perimeter or playing such games  as females indulge in���tennis and grass hockey, or practising for the end of term  sports day by jumping over  the tennis net and other silly  pursuits. Some of the older  buys risked censure by jumping up and taking furtive looks  but, as I said before, I just  wasn't interested and ignored  the commotion going on outside although one would have  had to be stone deaf or wearing earmuffs to escape hearing the squeals, screams and  cries of perhaps two hundred  girls at play.  Suddenly my feelings and  altitudes towards them  changed. It didn't occur gradually or by various stages but,  looking back on it now, it was  as if a bombshell had exploded  it came about so rapidly. Of  course I suppose it had to  happen sooner or later, the  first stirrings of sex consciousness, as 1 was about  fourteen years of age and  naturally, being daily in the  company of older boys, I had  heard some pretty lurid  stories (real or imaginary)  from them as to what you  could do to girls and, more important, what they could do  to you. I didn't believe half  of these stories and dismissed  them as wishful thinking or  sheer braggadocio on their  part and was too busy with  other things such as football,  fishing and swimming.  1 remember the new fall  term was commencing and,  without any warning, when we  attended the first day of school  wc found, much to our surprise, that Mr. Meadows the  English master was no long  er with us nor was Mr.  Thomas the History master,  Whether it was due to the  First World War and the carnage that had occurred, re*  suiting in a shortage of qual  ified men to fill their posts, I  have never determined, but  we were dumbfounded to  find in their places two women���Miss R. Pym to teach  History and a Miss S. Wilson  to assume the duties left by  Mr. Meadows.  Two girls or women more  unalike it would have been  hard to imagine. Miss Pym  was a tali, tweedy type who  wore pince-nez, woollen stockings and sturdy brown  brogues to emphasize what  was only too apparent���there  was to be no nonsense as regards her and the knowledge  she was about to impart to us  boisterous boys. Although at  the time I was in no position to  judge her qualifications, there  was certainly one thing that  did stand out���she had about  as much femininity and sex  appeal as a roll of barbed wire  and we were duly impressed,  at least I was. Miss Wilson  (we later found out her first  name was Susan) was something else again. On the short  side, cute and cuddlesome,  with all the curves in their  right places, a pair of delightful dimples and long,  dark, shoulder-length hair.  She threw us all in a tizzy and  I think it is safe to say that in a  matter of only a few weeks  half of the older boys were  madly in love with her, myself  included. 1 had had formerly  only a passing interest in English Language and Literature  but now it, or I should say her,  became my passion and I a-  waited eagerly her classes. All  the other classes, with the exception of geography, became  even more dull and uninteresting.  I have no means of knowing  just how smitten my classmates were but I do know that  I had such a crush on this delectable little creature that it  became an obsession with me  and I began to behave in a  most strange and irrational  manner. I became moody and  irritable, flared up at the  slightest provocation and,  strangest of all, lost my  appetite for food. I, whose  grocery consumption previously had been about the  equivalent of a Pereheron stallion, eating anything and  everything my mother put in  front of me, now became  choosy and full of complaints.  Before this consuming love  bug hit me I cared nothing  about my appearance but now  I spent long hours before the  mirror, examining myself critically, smoothing down my  hair and searching for any  possible signs of a blackhead  or a pimple which might mar  my otherwise healthy complexion. My parents noticed  all this strange behaviour and  thought I was sick and there  was talk of sending me to our  family doctor, old Dr. Evers. I  doubt if he, wise as he was,  could have found anything  seriously wrong with me. It  was simply that I was in love  for the very first time and, in  those years, there were no  pills, potions, or tranquillizers  available that would have  cured me or helped to alleviate  the condition.  maammaa��mamamamama  Week-long programs'of  SUMMER  ACTIVITIES  FOR  Sunsnlne Coast  Fitness & Recreation Service  Call 885-9386   __  ������������������������a  IS3SSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS2  SUNSHINE  The usual prize of $5.00 will be awarded to the first  name drawn from the barrel Identifying the location  of the picture above.
