The Port Mellon mothers made  their position of protest clear in meetings held last week with  MLA Don Lockstead, School Board Chairman Don Douglas,  and at a community meeting filmed by BCTV.  The incident which sparked a long-simmering discontent into  the open took place oq Tuesday of hist week. A power pole came  down strewing electric and telephone lines across the road a  reported 2.4 kilometres from Port Mellon.  Despite the fact that a bypass route through Construction  Aggregates property wu available for traffic, the school bus  driver deposited the school children at the side of the road and left  them to find their own way across the downed lines.  A spokesman for the Port Mellon mothers said that it was not  until Thursday morning that B.C. Hydro was in a position to  confirm that the downed lines were not live.  'He let those kids out of the   bus couldn't make it.  BCTV cameras were on hand in the Port Mellon Community Hall as the parents of the community discussed their  grievances with school bus service. mama  bus to cross power lines that  might have been live, in the  midst of shift change traffic and  in a wilderness area with a high  population of bears," said one  mother. The twenty elementary  school children ranged in age  from rive and a half to twelve  years,  It was pointed out that a 40-  foot Peninsula Transport track  had already successfully  negotiated the by-pass and  there was no reason die school  Other complaints voiced  included school children being  put off the school bus at  Hopkins Landing and left to  walk in a snow storm to Port  Mellon, school bus speeding,  early departures leaving  children at the side of the road,  and allegations of verbal and  physical abuse.  Veteran bus driver" Jim  Mullins who has been driving  the Port Mellon school bus for  23 years informed the Coast  News that he was resigning  from the position. This is the  thanks you get after 23 years of  driving kids without so-much as  a single accident," said Mullins.  Mullins said that there was  something wrong underneath  the bus which prevented him  delivering the Port Mellon  students via the by-pass at  Construction Aggregates. He  denied ever swearing at the  students or in any way abusing  them.  The School Bus Rules and  Regulations issued by the  Board of School Trustees  includes the statement, "The  driver must allow the student to  complete his ride either home  or to school".  "Bus drivers can be  replaced���our children  cannot," said the mothers of  Port Mellon.  It is understood that the dissatisfaction with the school bus  service also includes dissatisfaction with the driver of  the morning bus.  In addition to a letter written  to Dr. Pat McGeer, and  interviews with Don Lockstead  and Don Douglas, the Port  Mellon mothers are asking  residents in other areas of the  Sunshine Coast to speak up  and voice their complaints if  they have any.  At the present time the  School Board issues a contract  for the operation of school  buses and the Port Mellon  group feels that if the School  Board leased buses and hired  drivers it would be in a better  position to ensure (hat the  service was being handled in an  entirely satisfactory manner.  School Board Chairman  Douglas assured mothers that a  committee of thc School  Board with parents will be  struck this week to investigate  their complaints. "Certainly  your concerns are real," said  Douglas at a meeting with  representatives of the Port  Mellon parents held in the Port  Mellon Community Hall on  Friday morning, "I am very  concerned about children being  put off the buses."

Sakinaw Lake Home  Owner's Association first  presented   the   proposal.  Crowley's reasons for  turning down the site in Earl's  cove were access of the 500 kv  line coming over private  property and "affecting the  viability of the subdivision".  The Cove Cay subdivision  hu been described as "nonexistent". No residents live on  the subdivision and the project  owia M*r.yi5million to^  Royal Bank,  "In the count of time that  property would become very  valuable," Crowley said.  In response to objections  raised against the Malaspina  site, Crowley sent letters to  representatives   last   week  site.  The Malaspina site would  afford a flat area and  expansionary potential for the  25 to 35 acre substation.  . , Ivo Cargnelli, Sakinaw Lake  Home Owners Association,  will meet with Crowley on  September 24 to discuss the  substation site.  "That ugly old rumour is  coming back again���that  nuclear power will be coming  back from the top end of  saying   the   Malaspina ,Vancouver   Island  into  the  substation would not be across   energy grid," Cargnelli  said  from the Pender Harbour High  School as some feared. The  substation would be from three  to four kilometres away.  Crowley said that representatives had mistaken the existing  138 kv substation near the High  School for the proposed 500 kv  Wednesday. ���_^____  "Why else would they still be  going to build this line?  Nothing else makes sense. No  form of line justification has  ever been given," he said.  After battling the line for  over two years, Cargnelli said  he feels "quite pessimistic".  "They want to put the  substation at Malaspina and a  line across Sakinaw Lake���,  nothing has changed."  * Howard White, secretary of  the Pender Harbour Rate-  payer's Association, on  receiving the news, said he did  agree with Hydro's reasons but  that it didn't make the reasons  for Malaspina any more-  attractive.  "People don't realize the  larger issue. Every day the  possibility of power coming  back from Vancouver Island  becomes more likely."  White also said the Cheekye-  Dunsmuir Alliance would  continue to fight the line on a  united front; hopefully gaining  a wider oposition to the line  beyond the Sechelt Peninsula.  The Roberts Creek referendum for a new community hall  which would double as a  gymnasium for Roberts Creek  Elementary School passed  easily in voting held in Roberts  Creek on September 22.  A total of 376 of the eligible  voters cast their ballot and'235  of them voted in favour of the  new hall for a percentage of  62.5% Only51% approval was  needed in the ballotting.

David Hartman of  Sechelt officiated at the  invocation and the assembled  crowd of some 150 people  heard remarksfrom local MLA  Don Lockstead and the  Minister of Health, the  Honourable Bob McClelland,  who also officiated at the  ribbon-cutting ceremony.  Regional Board Chairman Ed  Nicholson also congratulated  the team which had brought  the hospital improvement  project into being.  The guests were invited on a  tour of the new facilities and  later served refreshments in the  hospital cafeteria.  "Good neighbour" Gibsons has agreed to allow Langdale  residents to connect a proposed sewage system with theirs.  Municipal Affairs in Victoria has approved the proposal.  Petitions will be circulated and if accepted by 66 per cent bylaws  prepared and funds obtained. Seventy-five per cent of the cost  would be paid by the provincial government.  If accepted, the Langdale-Gibsons sewage system would serve a  population up to the 600-foot elevation at North and Reid Roads  to the Chamberlain Road area.

After a "search" for other  possibilities, thc best area for  integrating treated effluent was  found to be the current area  used by Gibsons just off Gospel  Rock.  Interceptor sewers would bc  provided for shoreline  residents with pumps for  individual residents on rocky  shores. Installation of the  initial ten-inch pipe to final 24-  inch connecting pipe to  Gibsons should be "invisible".  Langdale residents would  pay Gibsons a rental for using a  portion of the treatment plant.  According to Director David  Hunter, cost to Gibsons  residents would actually bc less  because of thc increased  volume of sewage.  Thc petitions will bc  circulated within the next one  to two months to determine  whether or not the system is  desired by Langdale, West  Howe Sound residents.

First, the completion of the addition of  "St. Mary's Hospital has been achieved,  -practically on schedule and as Hospital  Board Chairman Warren McKibbin  observed on Saturday with justifiable pride  "'within budget'.  -; As Regional Board Chairman Ed  -Nicholson observed in his remarks, "The  Sunshine Coast now has a facility which in  'quality matches thc work of the staff of St.  .Mary's Hospital". It has been said many  ijjjtties and from many quarters that we are  figrtunate in the hospital services provided  -for us here on the Sunshine Coast but it  does no harm to say it here again.  In addition to the successful completion  of the renovation of the hospital, the  Sunshine Coast racked up its second  successful recreational referendum of the  year on Saturday when the voters of  Roberts Creek voted convincingly in  favour ofa new hall to be used jointly with  the Roberts Creek School. After several  years when everything proposed seemed to  elicit a negative reaction, 1979 has seen the  completion of the Pender Harbour  swimming pool proposal, the Gibsons  swimming pool, and now the Roberts  Creek facility.  As if this weren't enough, there now  appears to be co-operative noises  emanating from Area F concerning the  proposal that that area tie in to the  Gibsons sewer system, and co-operative  noises from Gibsons in return. There has  been the suggestion that the voters of Area  F may be willing to contribute to the  operating costs of the Gibsons Swimming  Pool for the good and sufficient reason  that many residents of that area use it.  It is always pleasant to record positive  and co-operative steps. As the man said,  "Sound the positive notes. Harmonies are  still possible."  to  Open aeoaon on B.C,  The   proposed   disbanding   of   the  Environmental Land Use Committee by.  K^l^-provineialgoveniment must be Seen ar  ii retrograde step. The Committee was  established to act as a watchdog in matters  environmental throughout the province  and as daily we are confronted with  environmental    horror   stories    about  mercury and chemicals which have found  ���atheir way into the water systems and the  - food chain of North America, one would  Shave thought that such a body stood on the  REreshhold of an active and important life.  Now  our  provincial  lords  in  their  wisdom   have  decided  to disband  it,  presumably because it had the temerity to  take the initiative in commissioning the  Shaffer Report whose negative findings on  the economic justification of the Cheekye-  ���"Dunsmuir   line   was   a   source  of  "embarrassment   to   a   provincial  government to whom Hydro's word is  apparently unquestionable.  The   line   will  apparently  be  built.  Nothing that has happened in the  protracted dispute about the Cheekye-  Bunsmuh line has completely persuaded  us that its future does not have more to do  with Hydro's self-perpetuating growth  fixation or that the line does not eventually  figure in plans to export energy, a program  with much more to do with Hydro's  enormous debt than it does with the power  requirements of Vancouver Island.  So, E.L.U.C. is no more. Naughty little  bureaucrats to question mighty Hydro and  its plans. How dare they even investigate  the Cheekye-Dunsmuir line? The  government action does not bode well.  There are signs that the government is  moving away from the Agricultural Land  Reserve despite the fact that the program  has been hailed as a model in federal  quarters and it begins to look that our  masters in Victoria are moving towards  declaring open season on the beauties and  the riches of this province. We wait with  some considerable trepidation for the next  developments.  from the files of Coast News  FIVE YEARS AGO  Bob Wilson of Gibsons is  interviewed by the Coast News as he  plans an 'around the world' trip in his  32-foot cutter Morning Maid.

Peterson  im��******  Musings  John Burnside  Slings & Arrows **  George Matthews  Being a sort of medieval  parable of the good knight Sir  Henry Hiccup and the true story  of how Macdonald's Hamburger  chain got its slogan.  It may be somewhat  presumptuous of me to be the  one to outline for our social  historians the story of i how  Macdonald's Hamburger got  their slogan. My acquaintance  with the giant fast food chain is  limited in the extreme.  As a matter of fact, I can only  remember one visit to a  Macdonald's store. It was in  Spokane, Washington, as I  remember, and I was the  somewhat dis-oriented  companion of a couple of  carefree farmers from the  Grand Forks region of B.C.,  including ex-Elphinstone  school teacher and longtime  friend, Waldo Dahl.  Waldo and his friend Bob  Burns were enroute to Spokane  to investigate the mysteries of  farm machinery and I was a  tourist at loose ends who went  along for the ride. The going  and the coming were enjoyable  but the duration of my stay was  spent largely in the waiting  rooms of suppliers of  agricultural implements and a  more unlikely setting for yours  truly is difficult to conceive.  Finally the last of the  agricultural shopping was  completed and after a brief  study of American drinking  habits at first hand, Burns  suggested we eat at Macdonald's. I have never been an  enthusiastic eater of hamburgers and certainly not at  places which specialize in the  mass production of same and I  demurred.  "Listen," said Burns, who at  the time at least was growing  crops, eating organic foods and  living the life of a stalwart,  healthy Canadian farmer, "the  only reason that I go to  Macdonald's when I come to  Spokane is because I consider it  my annual inoculation against  the American way of life".  What could I say and to  Macdonald's we repaired and I  too regarded it as an  inoculation, hopefully ofa less  than annual necessity.  As far as I can remember,  and my memory is spotty to say  the least, that amounts to my  expertise with the successful  franchise, but the other day I  did come across in a little  known source book the  medieval legend which I have  been led to believe gave  Macdonald's their well known  slogan, "We do it all for you".  It seems that verj 'j>ng ago in  a very little kingdom in the far  west there was a valiant knight  known as Sir Henry Hiccup. By  deeds of valour and much hard  work Sir Henry had raised  himself from the status of  humble squire in the household  of the Lord of Plaster. After Sir  Henry achieved knighthood by  his deeds of valour and  dedication he sought to  establish a comfortable little  feudal fiefdom for himself in a  beautiful country by the  shining sea. Sir Henry had two  main rivals in that lovely  fiefdom who also sought  control.  There was the veteran knight  Sir Van Egg who had been long  in the country and the brash  young knight of much wealth  Sir Heydiho Murder. Both of  these were valiant knights who  were like Sir Henry, seeking to  become lords of realm but Sir  Henry had much energy and  with his slogan, "I'm doing it all  for you," persuaded many of  the peasants of the land to  support him against his rivals.  Sir Heydiho wanted to build  some blacksmith shops in his  corner of the kingdom but Sir  Henry wanted all the  blacksmith shops to be on his  piece of the kingdom and he led  his loyal peasants, who didn't  have horses and had no need of  blacksmiths, in a campaign  against Sir Heydiho so that Sir  Henry could have control of all  the blacksmiths.  At the same time Sir Van Egg  was preparing to build a grand  castle for the wizards of the  realm on one of his pieces of the  lovely realm but Sir Henry  wanted the castle of wizards to  be on his territory too.  Assuring his loyal supporters  that he was doing it all for  them, he persuaded them to  object to Sir Van Egg's castle as  well as Sir Heydiho's  blacksmith shops.  Unfortunately the ancient  manuscript which tells the tale  was torn from its binding  before the end of the titanic  struggle was revealed and as the  unforgiving mists of time  closed around the skirmishings  of the three knights all has been  lost to us today, except of  course the battle-cry and  slogan of Sir Henry Hiccup  which we can still hear echoes  of in our meeting places and on  our television screens. "I do it  all for you..."  Ah will, it may not matter  that the true exploits and  derring-do of Sir Heydiho  Murder, Sir Van Egg and Sir  Henry Hiccup are lost to us  behind the swirling mists. For  myself, as with Macdonald's  Hamburgers,   I   find  myself  something of a skeptic. Some  warning twitch begins to affect  me behind the left ear when  anybody begins to trumpet at  me that what they're doing is all  for me, whether it be fast food  chains or valiant knights or  even fair young maidens. ...  It's what' keeps me from  frequenting hamburger joints  and from falling into line  behind this or that aspiring  knight. Through the days of my  life I have sought for the Holy  Grail of selflessness and have  found it seldom other than in  mothers and sometimes fathers  and never in knights who  would enlarge their kingdoms.  I must confess, however, that  the frequency with which I have  been hearing Sir Henry  Hiccup's slogan of late leaves  me feeling that perhaps another  inoculation is necessary.  Macdonald's here I come.  The capacity of the human  mind to learn is truly  remarkable. If you're a regular  reader you'll recall a couple of  weeks ago I wrote an item  about Herbert Simon and his  work with computers and how  he was working on a computer  to simulate human thinking  processes. Now I know you're  not going to believe this, but  when I wrote that piece I hardly  knew a thing about computers.  Since that time I've been  honing up on the subject and  I've now started to build my  own computer. '  There you are. Three weeks  ago I didn't know a thing and  now I'm an expert. I don't want  to give away too many of the  details about my computer  until I get a patent on it but I'll  share with you the general idea.  The most important feature  of my computer is that it will be  inexpensive. Anyone will be  able to build one, you can use  Lay Your Sleeping  g  ft    Head, My Love tf  JD       Lay your sleeping head, my love,  ���J       Human on my faithless arm;  J)       Time and fevers bum away  Individual beauty Irom  Thoughtful children, and the grave  Proves the child ephemeral:  But In my arms till break of day  Lei the living creature He,  Mortal, guilty, bul to me  The entirely beautilul.

Wysten Hugh Auden  bits and pieces of things lying  around the house or from  garbage cans and it doesn't use  any electricity. Incidentally, an  important spin off feature is  that it will be the first computer  in the world which is slower  than the human brain. Another  interesting benefit is the size. I  suspect, after taking a few  preliminary measurements,  that the average size suitable  for most families will probably  just about fit into your  basement���with maybe some  parts stored in the garage.  The heart of my computer,  the information storage  component, is designed around  the ordinary styrofoam cup.  Amazing isn't it. I figured out  that all the information you are  likely to need can be stored in  styrofoam cups. Incidently I've  been collecting them the past  two weeks and I now have 1256  with another 230 in reserve that  are too dirty or sticky to use  right now.  How can you store all that  information in styrofoam cups  you ask? Well, here is the truly  remarkable feature of the  system���you write it all out on  tiny bits of paper and store the  tiny bits in the styrofoam cups.  Let me give you an example.  Let's say you wanted to play tic  tae toe, (you know, X's and  O's) with your computer. First  of all you have to teach it how  to play. You do this by writing  out each possible move on a  tiny piece of paper and placing  each piece in the styrofoam cup  labelled tic tae toe. Now, there  are 90 possible moves in tic tae  toe so you'll need 90 little pieces  of paper. Once you have the  pieces in the cup you can play.  If it is your turn first you fill a  space on your score sheet with  an X or an O, then you reach  into the cup and pull out a slip  which shows an X or an O and  tells you what space on the  score sheet to put the mark in;  for example one slip would say  "X upper right hand corner".  (You have to write quite small.)  If you have chosen X on your  first move, then you put the slip  aside and pick another until  you get one marked O. If your  computer tells you to fill a  space already filled then you  simply set aside that slip and  pick another. You proceed in  this manner until either you or  the computer have won the  game. A wise cautionary note is  to remember to keep the  windows closed so the wind  doesn't blow your little bits of  paper away.

Browning  Port Mellon complaint to Victoria  Editor:  Herewith a copy of the letter  sent to Victoria with regard to  our school bus service.  September 20, 1979  The Honourable  Dr. Pat McGeer  Minister of Education,  Parliament Buildings,  Victoria, B.C.  Dear Sir,  We wish to bring to your  attention a very serious and  potentially dangerous incident  which occurred to Port  Mellon and District school  children recently.  On Tuesday, September 18, a  Hydro pole toppled, strewing  electrical and telephone wires  across the Port Mellon  Highway. An ample detour, via  Construction Aggregates road,  was immediately opened to  allow shift-change pulp  workers and large equipment  safe passage. A flag man was  stationed at either end of the  detour.,     .,,,      , ,.���  .jasqju  The school .bus driver  returning approximately 20 of  our children from Langdale  Elementary School arrived on  the scene, and without any  regard for the safety of his  passengers, promptly opened  the doors, discharged the  children and hastily departed.  The children ranging in age  from S'/t to 12 years old, were  left to cross the downed wires at  their own risk. Thanks to B.C.  Telephone, B.C. Hydro and  Construction Aggregates  crewmen, our children were  time it was not known if the  wires were alive or dead. Our  children were then left to walk  (unsupervised) along the  highway in order to get home.  This particular time of day is  shift change and traffic on the  highway is very heavy. This  procedure was again re-enacted  an hour later when the same  bus driver deposited the high  school students in the same  fashion.  The bus driver neither  attempted to use the detour  road or ask if alternative  transportation could be  arranged to take the kids home.  The detour road was fully  capable of being used by the  school bus as forty foot  transport trucks used the road.  We contacted the Sechelt  School Bus Line to find out  what action will be taken  concerning our latest incident.  We were told the driver was  advised to contact the school  bus line if a similar situation  distance between Langdale  School and Port Mellon lies  seven miles of wilderness. Our  children have been ordered off  the bus, anywhere along this  highway, and left to walk or  hitch-hike home. We the  parents will no longer tolerate  irresponsible acts on the part of  these bus drivers to our  children.  ' We feel there has been a  grave and serious injustice  done to us as parents,  concerning this abandonment  of our children in this situation.  We entrust our,very precious  children to you with the belief  that all will be done within your  power to ensure the safety of  our children from the time they  leave us until they are returned  after  school.  Preferably we would like to  see an investigation into this  whole school bus affair on the  Peninsula, as we have heard  rumblings of complaints from  other communities concerning  shgpld d<;y,.;|pp< However,.the,:, service anddrivqrs also.-.  driver was neither repre  manded nor replaced. He  continues to drive our children  to and from school, irregard-  less of his actions.  Mr. McGeer, we are asking  you, both as parents and  concerned citizens to please  look into this matter for us. Its  a horrible feeling not to know  what perils your child might be  exposed to next, under the  supervision (or lack of it)of an  irresponsible adult.  This is not the first nor only  incident of neglect on the part  of  these   bus   drivers.   The  helped safely across. At this  Slings and arrows(cont'd)  missing so you could make The really big job will be  ano.ther one. Also, it might teaching my computer to play  chess. The number of possible  chess moves is represented by a  number that is so big it  wouldn't fit on this newspaper  page. I believe, however, that if  I write small enough I can do it  all using just 80 cups, 40 for  white and 40 for black. Most  chess games don't go on past 40  moves so that should do it.  The next obvious question is  how will I be able to get at this  information when I have it all  stored away. (We computer  specialists call this "accessing"  and "retrieval".)  I think I have most of the  bugs worked out on this  problem. I plan on storing the  index to all the computer  information in a separate cup  and when I need to know where  something is I will simply dump  the cup out and search through  the little scraps of paper until"  find the directions to what I  need. Let's say I was doing a  crossword puzzle and 1 needed  a four letter word starting with  A. I would just look through  my index cup until I found the  information "look for A's (four  letters) on the top shelf behind  the pickle jars". Then I would  go to the place indicated and  find what I need.  As you can see, the system  needs some refining, but the  fact that I can even begin such a  project is amazing in itself.  There is no doubt that we are in  the computer age and not only  should everyone know how to  use one���we all ought to have  our own. Following my plan,  everyone can have his own  computer for a very low cost  and without the usual high cost  of electricity.  A bus driver can be replaced,  but our children can't. We have  been very fortunate that  nothing fatal has happened to  our children yet, but next time  might be too late.  THIS IS THE YEAR OF  THE CHILD! ACTION  MUST BE TAKEN TO PUT  AN END TO THIS PROBLEM!!!  Sincerely yours,  The Concerned Parents  of Port Mellon and District  School Children.  (34 signatures)  make the game simpler if you  put all the X's in one cup and  the O's in another.  I've tried this game out  several times in the last three or  four days and while the  computer hasn't beaten me yet  you have to remember that I've  been playing for years. Another  small problem I've been  working on is the time it takes  lo play. So far the fastest game  my computer and I have played  took 2'/i hours.  Now if all your computer  could do was play tic tae toe it  wouldn't be much good to you;  so you have to teach it more.  The project I'm working on  now is teaching it words. You  probably think that sounds  dumb but wait until I explain  how I plan to do it. First I am  going to write out all the  words that start with A and are  only one letter long and store  them in one cup. That should  be easy because there aren't  many of those. Then I'll write  out all the words that start with  A and are two letters long and  store them in another cup. I'll  stop when I get to words more  than 12 letters long because 1  don't use those much anyway. I  calculate that by following this  plan I will be able to store the  entire contents of the Webster  unabridged dictionary in  slightly more than 300 cups, (I  won't bother with X's and O's  because I don't need those very  often). It may take awhile to  complete this part of the plan  but I figure that ifl get my three  daughters to help we'll get the  job done in two or three  weekends.

The York is no  ephemeral or new-hatched  establishemcnt like some of  those we've visited tonight. It  dates back to the early part of  the century���a real landmark. I  have known it a few years  myself. It is full of memories  and lost faces. My mind  dislocates in time and space.  December 24, three years  later. I'm on my way, bearing  gifts and liquor, to spend  Chritstmas with a married pal  and his family in Richmond. I  decide to stop off at the York  lor a few with the boys and  girls before grabbinga streetcar  and heading out. It is not a wise  decision. All my old gang-  friends are here tonight, a fine  cross-section of the sort of  people your parents always  warned you about. Several  heer-crammed tables are pulled  together; a summit conference  of streetwise, fairweather faces  drunkenly greets me. A couple  of whiskey bottles are relayed  Irom hand to hand like  messages in jail. 1 stash my'  packages under the chair, gag  down my first boilcrmaker and  start to sail. The waiters don't  even caution us about the hard  booze. Hell, they're all half-  leaded themselves. Yahooy, it's  the festive season! Soon I've  cracked one of my own bottles  ;tml things arc galloping out of  control and focus. Every so  often I make half-hearted  a'fterhpts to leave but  goodtime-Charlie hands keep  dragging mc back for one  more. My capacity is not  notably great in these days.  Inevitably, I pass out in my  chair like a blackjacked idiot.  Nt.xt thing I know I'm flailing  tip out ofa bottomless pit with  the sting of ammonia in my  nostrils, pungent enough to  shock a corpse alive. "Closing  time kid," says the waiter  recapping the vial,  j Everyone has gone. I grope  under the chair in a sudden  piithc that proves to be well-  Pages  from a Life-Log  Peter Trower  founded. All the rest of my  booze is gone and some  unscrupulous bastard has even  made away with my presents.  At least they didn't go through  my pockets. I thank God for  small mercies, catch the last  streetcar cursing myself and  journey sans liquor or gifts to  my friend's place with nothing  to offer but dumb apologies.  Another winter in 1957. I'm  staying upstairs for the first  time. The rooms in the' York  date back to some halcyon age  of elegance. They are huge and  impractical, over twice the size  of thc utilitarian cubicles in the  newer establishments but no  more expensive. Great party  rooms. I'm back in the city for  the first time in a year and a  half, considerably bushed and  moderately stakey. After a  couple of strike-outs I've  rustled myself up a girl to party  with. It's a pretty minimal  party���just the two of us, a  bottle, a case of beer and a  record player. After all those  charing and largely womanless  ' Htimat months my needs are  sjnple. Unfortunately, my  young companion has old-  fashioned, overly-protective  parents who wait up for her.  She grabs a cab home around  two or so and I conk out like a  light. One disadvantage of the  York rooms is that they don't  have Yale locks. They have to  be secured with a key from the  inside and I neglect to do this.  During the night some brazen,  Indian-silent prowler enters  and lifts my topcoat and wallet.  I absolve my lady-friend of  suspicion since she is a country-  girl I've known since she was a  kid. That doesn't alter my  predicament. It is snowing  relentlessly outside and I have  to fly north again the next day.  1 feel like jumping out the  window. Then, to my intense  relief, I discover an overlooked traveller's cheque still  hidden in my suitcase. It is just  enough to buy a secondhand  topcoat and clear town.  These negative experiences  might be expected to sour me  on the York permanently but  somehow they don't. Perhaps  I'm a sucker for punishment  but I have a peculiar affection  for the old hotel and anyway  the good times I have there far  outnumber the bad. It becomes  the rough axis of my downtown  wanderings.  My association with the  York will continue for a good  many years beyond this  arbitrary point in time.  Headlong into the psychedelic  period and a whole confusion  of different faces changing  seats in that place like a game of  musical chairs in a speeded-up  movie. Enigmatic girls on the  run from Toronto and  themselves, clutching my  fascinated hand under tables;  frenetic musicians with  piercing eyes psyching me out  through the smoke; sometimes  confused friends from the  previous decade who are  having great trouble adjusting  to the snowballing nonconformity. Scenes. Assignations. Revelations. Human  comedy conterpointed always  by human tragedy.  1966. The last time I will ever  stay at the York. By now they  have chopped a lot of those big  rooms in half to bolster their  tottering revenues. But they  haven't altered the bridal suite  so I rent it. I'm temporarily rich  from a powerline job. My  companion now is a gentle girl  called Karen. She is one of the  best girls of my life and I want  to show her the stage of my  graceless past. They have  television sets in the rooms  now. We drink whisky together  and watch a great black, blues  show on channel nine. We're  alone at last in my old historic  hotel with the world locked out  behind the Yale locks they  Anally installed. It is a good  warm together moment and I  cling to it and Karen as long as I  can. Later we venture down to  that familiar bar and sit ther  tipsily watching the plastered  parade. I tell Karen of the  strange stratas that exist for me  here and watch the faces and  tables unwind into yesterdays  beyond yesterday.  But suddenly all the dreams  are gone. I'm a sad sidewalk  superintendent peering  through a knothole not many  years ago. There is nothing left  of the York but a few piles of  rubble in a block-square crater.  Clanking steel dinosaurs  perpetrate change; break  ground for skyscrapers; chew  the tawdry two-bit memories to  dust.  Consider briefly the cadaverous man  crouched alone in this congested minute  glazing eyes fixed on invisible disasters  veined arthritic fingers clutching a beer-glass  no hope but dust for the seamed cheeks  dry-mud flesh cracked by too many suns  his universe reduced to a dark corner-table.  Behind him they are filming a t.v. commercial  a light-hearted study of beer-parlour patrons  the young director poses a barmaid, joking  cameras grind arc lamps glare bawdy remarks fly  the cadaverous man sits locked on some lost tragedy  glimpsed dimly through withering distance  they film around him, fixing contented faces  their mission has little in common with truth  they seek a congenial image  it has nothing to do with reality.

Garden Club  by Jack MacLeod  Members of the Sechelt  Garden Club had reason to be  pleased with the high quality of  entries in their recent Fall  Flower Show, and with the  support of the many Coast  residents who attended in such  good numbers.  Top grower at the Show was  Tarn Johnson of Gibsons area.  Tarn took home the silver rose  bowl donated for the  competition by The Royal  Bank. On his way to winning  the Grand Aggregate Trophy  he gathered up the Redman  Memorial Cup for the most  points in Section One���Cut  Floweis. In Section Two���^ot  Plants, he tied with Thelma  LeFeaux for the Frank Read  Trophy.  The show has a category for  members who have never won  an award, the Adam Mitchell  Cup, and this also went to Tarn  Johnson. By this way or  reckoning, up to award giving  time Tarn was a Novice as he  had never won a trophy before.  Some Novice! Congratulations  Tam!  Winner of Section Three-  Arrangements, was Carmen  Grassie who was awarded the  Janet Allen Plaque. Best  hanging Basket in the show  went to Theima LeFeaux who  won the Copping Cup. Alec  Ellis won the Sechelt Garden  Club Cup for the best Dahlia in  the show while Louis Hanson  won another club cup for the  best Pot Plant in the show.  In the children's Dish  Garden Category, cash prizes  went to Lyle Chenier, Teresa  Robilliard, and Andrea  Robilliard.  This Garden Club has  sponsored a Junior Club in the  Sechelt Elementary School for  some time. Pat Craig, a teacher  at the school, was the liaison  person, organizing weekly  noon hour meetings.  In September some school  gardens were inspected by the  club and prizes were awarded  to Leah Vandeberg and Carole  Karpenko.  Mr. Jack Kirkland of Selma  Park, a long time member of  the Point Grey Chrysanthemum Society, gave some  beautiful in-curve "mums" for  the stage display.  The numerous entries in the  show were judged by Miss Rose  Bancroft of Burnaby who  i received a beautiful corsage  and made many helpful  comments. She said that she  was very impressed with the  quality of the exhibits.  Club members extend thanks  to the Royal Bank for  supplying the Grand Aggregate  Trophy and to Winnie Cheung,  Loan Officer at the Bank, who  efficiently performed the show  opening formalities.  New  Horizons  The first meeting for this fall  season of the Elphinstone New  Horizons Group will be held on  Monday, October 15 at 1:30  p.m. at the Roberts Creek  Community Hall. All seniors in  the area are very welcome to  enjoy an afternoon of  fellowship and activities with  us. There are no membership  fees. This is your opportunity  to meet your neighbours and  make new friends. We look  forward to meeting you.  Tom Walton  by Rae Ellingham  General Notes: Mercury and  Venus conjoin Pluto in Libra  emphasizing the need for  straight, honest talking. Saying  what you really mean in a  pleasant manner now produces  results.  Mars enters Leo for eight  weeks indicating a re-  channeling ofenergy into those  various life-departments which  may have been gathering dust.  Jupiter moves into Virgo for  twelve months promising long-  awaited opportunities where  we had, perhaps, given up  hope.  Babies born this week will be  born leaders and natural  diplomats. They will respect  only thc truth, fairness and  justice for all,  ARIES (March 21-April 19)  Relations with close  associates continue to improve.  All should be sweetness and  kindness thanks to honest  discussions. Don't be surprised  if loved one starts to reveal  secret desires and fantasies.  Looks like you're being  encouraged to do the same.  Remember that social  pleasures and creative energy  hit high peak during the next  few weeks.  TAURUS (April 20-May 20)  You continue to say the right  words where you perform daily  tasks. Co-workers will admire  your ability to solve problems  fairly and diplomatically.  Those anxious for change in  employment scene should mail  applications and resumes this  week. Realize that your pen is  now instrument of good luck.  Prepare to direct extra energy  into domestic priorities.  GEMINI (May 21-June 21)  Emphasis is on words of  love, giving someone a "line",  persuading admirer you're the  best available. Appreciation of  beauty, art, music or poetry  increase. Others may whisper  you've become soppy. Children  in your life are now prepared to  consider your philosophy and  way of thinking. Extra energy  will soon be channeled into  local communications, short  trips, delivering messages  around neighbourhood.  CANCER (June 22-July 22)  Tranquility in the home  continues. Now's the time to  encourage airing of personal  view-points amongst family  members. Deep-seated  domestic problem can be  rooted out and solved. Anyone  wishing to clinch rare rental or  real estate deal must keep on  talking. Those still switching  furniture around or decorating  living space will bc glad they  did. Prepare for confrontation  with stanger over money.  LEO (July 23-Aug.22)  Mars in your sign brings  extra energy and courage to  help get what you deserve.  You'll be busier than usual  during the next eight weeks.  Try to control over-  agressiveness and "me-first"  attitude. Local visits and  friendly gossip are still sources  of contentment. Realize it's  your best time of the year to  catch up with correspondence  back-log.  -^tf-. *#*:). >)���:)���*:  NDP  VIRGO (Aug.23-Sept.22)  Continue to anticipate  pleasant news concerning  money, gifts and prizes.  Statistics would prove that  Virgo wins the most this week.  Don't lose that lottery ticket.  Good luck arrives on Saturday  when the fortunate Jupiter  enters your sign for a twelve  months stay. Meanwhile,  private plans and hidden  activity should still be kept  secret.  LIBRA (Sept.23-Oct.23)  The Sun, Mercury, Venus  and Pluto still in your sign  bestow charm, intelligence and  determination on your day-today affairs. Your powers of  persuasion have never been  stronger. Force of personality  quells all complaints or  objections. Make the effort to  attend all crucial meetings.  Remember that local group  venture may need your  leadership skills.  SCORPIO (Oct.24-Nov.22)  Accent is on secret  developments about which you  know nothing. Looks like  you're being discussed in  private. Your business affairs  could be the topic of phone  calls and confidential notes.  Advice is to combat mystery  with mystery and disappear for  a few days. Chances are hidden  facts will be out in the open  upon your return. Sick or  lonely person in confinement  needs your attention again.  SAGITTARIUS (Nov.23-  Dec.21)  Contentment is still found  being actively involved with  group venture or community  project. Remember you have  the ability to . influence  decisions and directions. Say  "yes" to nomination for  committee membership. You'll  be glad that recent friends and  acquaintances have pointed  out wider range of social  activities. Continuing  education courses or longdistance affairs soon demand  extra attention.  CAPRICORN (Dec.22-Jan.19)  It's an excellent period for  promoting your honour,  position and achievements.  Don't be afraid to announce  that you've done a great job.  (Nobody else will!) Ask bluntly  whether up-coming promotion  will be yours. Believe it or not,  bosses and superiors will be  impressed with your audacity  and charm. Avoid arguments  linked to shared expenses,  long-term investments,  scraping around for cash.  AQUARIUS (Jan.20-Feb.18)  Looks like you're still  fascinated by a stranger or  philosopher from far-away  place. Higher learning, foreign  lands, researching for the truth  are still sources of contentment  and peace of mind. Now's the  time to enroll in self-  improvement class or renew  library membership. Thirst for  knowledge needs quenching.  Prepare to say "no" to loved  one's bossy attitude.  PISCES (Feb.19-Mar.20)  Accent is on manipulating  your way around other  people's financial affairs. Yov  now have the ability li"  persuade others to lend you thc  exact amount for your plans.  You could also talk your way  out of nasty, lingering debt.  Make sure that close associates  remain unaware of current  deals. Work scene confrontation Figures strongly. Linguistics must consider poetry  The Bookman's Corner  Debuts as soprano  by John Moore  B.F. Skinner has suggested  that individual freedom and  human dignity, as we  understand these terms, are  outmoded concepts used  primarily to justify or excuse  the periodic outbursts of  irrational savagery which occur  in the midst of our supposedly  rational civilized society. As  such, these concepts are a  dangerous luxury which  humanity can no longer afford.  The moral ambiguities which  complicate this question have  best been dramatized in recent  years by Stanley Kubrick's film  of Anthony Burgess' novel A  Clockwork Orange, which deals  with the "rehabilitation " of an  incorrigible urban savage with  the use of "operant conditioning" techniques, many of  which have been in use in less  sophisticated form for some  time in prison camps and  mental institutions around the  world.  The "Science of Behavior"  which Skinner believes could  redeem our tottering techni-  logical nightmare, as well as the  "benign" technocracy which  would have to apply and  administer such "science", are  obviously fraught with perils  that are no less concrete for  being ethical. Controlling the  mind, in fact, is often about as  far from the realm of  comfortable mental abstraction as you can get. If you're  interested in a non-fiction, (but  no less harrowing for that) look  at what the mind-mechanics  have in store there's The Shape  of Minds to Come by John G.  Taylor (Penguin Books).  The liberal-humanist  foundation of modern Western  culture has been understandably shaken up by far-reaching  implications of Skinner's ideas,  many thinkers have suggested  that man's creative impulses  spring from the same  subconscious source as his  most destructive urges. Skinner  has come under attack from  many quarters, but entrenched  behind his graphs and  statistics, and a wall of  incomprehensible jargon, he  characterizes himself as the  apostle of science and  rationality surrounded by  wooly-headed liberals, full of  Rousseauesque twaddle about  the noble savage, whose  criticism is on a par with the  occupants of a runaway car  arguing over the road-map.  However, one of Skinner's  most persistent critics, Noam  Chomsky, is not to be  dismissed quite so handily. A  professor of linguistics,  Chomsky first came to public  prominence in 1957 with his  book Syntactic Structures,  which expounded, in relatively  non-technical, therefore  understandable, form, his  theory of "transformational  grammar"; a system of  linguistic iffldy by which any  language can, in theory, be  subjected to a kind of  mathematically logical, and  therefore scientific, analysis to  determine its most distinctive  features and patterns. Ideally,  the reduction of the major  characteristics of any language  into mathematical formulae  makes possible a truly  "comparative" study of  languages, a study uncluttered  by confusing environmental  and cultural influences. With  its appeal to "disinterested  science" in method and its  opening up of the tantalizing  vista of comparative linguistics, it's hardly surprising that  Chomsky's work revolutionized linguistic studies. While  his theories continue to be as  controversial as Skinner's, it is  a measure of the man that most  modern schools of linguistic  study define themselves in  terms of where they agree or  disagree with Chomsky.  While   a   fundamental  opposition to Skinner and the  Gibsons  PENTACOSTAL  CHURCH  Moving  to  Cedar  Grove  Elementary  School  let  Sunday  in  October  ���"������"���������'IBM  Behaviorists is implied by  Chomsky's earliest work, he  first emerged as a critic of  Behaviorism in a 1959 review of  Skinner's Verbal Behavior. He  has since amplified his attack to  include many other social  scientists whose "scientific"  obsession with statistics and  lab experiments with animals  is, he says, an accretion of  meaningless data assembled to  give them the illusion of  credibility among sciences  founded on genuine hard  evidence, while their  methodological wrangling and  jargon are a smokescreen  which prevents them from  coming to grips with the real  problems to which they should  be addressing themselves.  According to Chomsky,  language is not merely a set of  habits built up by reinforcement, but is radically different  from any form, of animal  communication. Transformational analysis of the  grammar of widely diverse  languages indicates, he says,  that certain general, fundamental structural similarities  exist which suggest an intimate  relationship between language  and the structure of the human  mind. Language, he concludes,  must be to a considerable  extent biologically determined.  Chomsky's theories go a long  way toward explaining how  children really do acquire such  a remarkable rapid mastery of  language and, if language is a  reflection of the universal  human mind, then by studying  it we can gain valuable insight  into our own minds and the  minds of our fellow human  beings, regardless of their race,  social position, or physical and  intellectual characteristics.  Vernon to open Opera Season  Much of Chomsky's impact on  other academic disciplines has  been a result not only of his  appeal to reason in a scientific  sense, but of his appeal to a  belief in human dignity and the  brotherhood of man.  If you're not up to a straight  plunge into the murky waters  of linguistic theory, one of the  best little books you can pick  up as an introduction to  Chomsky and his work appears  in the Fontana Modern  Masters series. It's called  simply Chomsky and it's by  John Lyons. At SI.50 it's a  cheap way to acquire erudition;  in fact the whole series, from  the ones I've dipped into, seems  to be quite above the run-of-  the-mill intellectual short-cuts.  They're a hell ofa good way to  brush up on those "significant"  people one is supposed to know  about but, whose works can  often be tedious, interminable,  fragmentary, or incomprehensible without a commentary to put them in context.  Obviously I lean much more  toward Chomsky's position  rather than Skinner's, if only  because Behaviorism, as it  applies to language, seems to  me to be a superficial view that  leaves no room for the poetry,  for Dylan Thomas' haunting  love of Ride a Cock-horse to  Banbury Town, or for my own  fascination with lines like  Yeats' "That dolphin-torn, that  gong-tormented sea", which I  confess I still don't understand.  Poetry has been defined as "the  simplest way of saying  anything" and as "language  charged with meaning to the  ultimate degree". It seems to me  that any serious study or theory  of linguistics ought to take  account of it.  The Vancouver Opera  Association opens its 1979-80  season on Saturday, October  13 with Cavalleria Rusticana  and I Pagliacci. Written in 1890  and 1892 respectively, these  short operas are the traditional  double bill of Opera. "Cav" and  "Pag", as the operas are  affectionately known, will also  be performed on October 16,18  and 20 at the Queen Elizabeth  Theatre, the location for all of  the Association's productions.  The Subscription Series  continues with a new English  translation of Smetena's  infectiously melodious opera,  The Bartered Bride and  concludes with Verdi's  stirringly dramatic II  Trovatore. Season tickets  ranging in price from $ 18 to $87  for all three sessions are still  available, and individual  tickets for the double bill are on  sale now through all branches  of the Vancouver Ticket  Centre.  The opening production is  particularly interesting in that  local resident Lyn Vernon is  making her debut for the  Vancouver Opera Association  in Cavalleria Rusticana singing  the role of Santuzza. Lyn has  previously been singing roles in  the mezzo soprano range, and  her appearance at the Queen  Elizabeth Theatre will be her  first as a soprano. It is not very  unusual for singers to transfer  their singing activities to a  higher register. The great turn-  of-the-century tenor Giovanni  Zenatello and, later, the great  Wagnerian tenor Lauritz  Melchior both started their  operatic careers as baritones.  Contemporary Metropolitan  soprano Shirley Verret was  singing mezzo soprano roles a  Local product Lyn Vernon Is pictured In her recent acclaimed performance as Carmen  in the opera ol the same name.  FREE INSPECTION  Superior  BING'S EXHAUST  few years ago, and Marilyn  Home now calls herself a  soprano. Lyn says that Marilyn  Home always was a soprano  with an extraordinarily well  produced lower register.  Lyn was born in New  Westminister but moved while  she was still a young child to the  Sunshine Coast where her  parents own the Bonniebrook  Lodge and Trailer Court. She  graduated from Elphinstone  Secondary School, and she  remembers Lester Peterson,  Mrs. Fallows, Mr. Bennie,  George Cooper and Mrs.  Hercus among her teachers.  Upon graduation, Lyn  studied for a general Bachelor  of Music degree specializing at  first in piano. During her first  year, however, she also took  singing lessions with Donald  Brown and audited French  Tickner's Opera Workshop  sessions. These were her first  singing lessons although she  had sung in choirs organized by  her mother on the Sunshine  Coast and had always enjoyed  singing. Her first opportunity  came when Erica Busch, who  was to sing the small part of the  governess in the Workshop's  Christmas presentation of  excerpts from Moussorgsky's  Boris Goudonov, was given a  role with the Vancouver Opera  Association. Lyn took her  place.  When she returned from the  Christmas vacation, Lyn took  the Opera Workshop as a  course at French Tichner's  suggestion. During summer  vacations she worked at  various jobs including a stint  with B.C. Ferries, and she took  a year out from University  during which she worked as a  waitress, as a clerk at Eatons, at  the Bank of Montreal in Prince  George and at a variety of other  occupations, "long enough to  know that she didn't like it," as  Lyn put it. When she returned  to U.B.C, her love of singing  resulted in her devoting her  energy to the serious study of  opera. At this point, she did not  feel that she had a clear cut goal  as she was uncertain' as to  whether or not she had  sufficient talent for a career in  opera, but she left U.B.C. after  a total of three years when she  was invited to join the  Vancouver Opera Association's studio group. Here she  met Robert Keyes who had at  that time been a Covent  Garden vocal coach for 25  years. She had wanted for some  time to go to Europe and hc  suggested that she go to Zurich  to study. It was not long before  she had a contract with the  Zurich Opernhaus, and she  became more and more  immersed in opera as she  assayed bigger and better roles.  She was also engaged by the  Grand Theatre de Geneve, and  she has subsequently sung for  the Edmonton Opera Association, the English National  Opera, the Canadian Opera  Company and for the  Australian Opera.  Among singers of the past  whom she admires, she  mentioned Kirsten Flagstad  and Tito Gobbi, She would  also, she said, love to have  attended a performance by  Maria Cailas although she does  not particularly admire her  singing from the point of view  of vocal production. Among  contemporary singers, she  admires Janet Baker and  Dietrich Fischer-Diskau. She  also thinks the Canadian tenor,  Jon Vickers a most exciting  singer although she feels that  his singing does not quite have  the polish of that of the other  two contemporary artists  whom she mentioned.  Her favourite operatic role  to date is that of Octavian in  Der Rosenkavalier. She is very  much looking forward to  singing the role of Santuzza in  Cavalleria Rusticana as this  opera'is among those which she  has most enjoyed watching.

Perhaps in the near)  future we will hear of Lyn from  Bayreuth, the home of the great  Wagnerian music dramas.  She has not, however, lost  interest in the mezzo soprano  repertoire, and she would like  to sing the role of Eboli in  Verdi's Don Carlo and that of  Adalgisa in Bellini's Norma.  Perhaps most of all, she would  like to assay the great dramatic  soprano roles such as  Brunnhilde, Sieglinde and  Isolde in Wagner's Musik-  dramas.  When Lyn returned to  Canada about one year ago,  she was thinking of resettling  here, but now, she says, she's  getting restless. It took her until  last year to decide that she  wanted to continue with her  singing career. At one point,  she had been thinking of giving  up singing and taking up  teaching.

Government Recipe Leaflets A Bargain  Nest Lewis formerly Home Economic Teacher  Elphinstone High School 1965-1976  I've never had great faith in Government Departments since the time I wrote off to  Federal Government for Information on Solar Heating. A year and three months later I  received a small pamphlet from them���I'd forgotten I'd asked for it! However, I've had my faith  restored by a Provincial Government Department which only took four days to write back.  Surrey, of course, isn't quite as far as Ottawa!  The Department I'm praising Is the Provincial  Ministry of Agriculture. I wrote to them after I'd  heard a C.B.C. lunchtime programme telling me all  the ways I could cook Zucchini. Any gardener will  understand how relieved I felt. For once in my life I  organized myself into getting a pencil and paper at  the right time and wrote the address down correctly,  Postal Code and all!  The Zucchini pamphlet tells you how to select  Zucchini, how to store them, how tof reeze them and  also gives you sixteen recipes all the way from  chocolate Zucchini cake to Zucchini relish.  "Chocolate Zucchini cake," I hear you mutter! I  tasted some the other day and It's just incredibly  good���moist and crunchy. Great for lunch bags.  I wrote too for information on Honey. Did you  know that during its six week life span each honey  bee gathers only about one teaspoon of honey-  amazing. This pamphlet I found helpful because it  Jold me how to substitute honey for sugar in recipes.  Then there were lots of honey recipes-  Orange Honey Quickbread, Honey  Apricot Yogurt, Honey Salad Dressing  ���just to name a few.  I also received a most useful booklet on  Gardening Hints and Recipes which is a continuing  series published quarterly by the Ministry. Each  issue contains a different collection of kitchen  tested recipes and seasonal gardening information.  The gardening section is written by Bernard  Moore���so you know it's bound to be good.

Coast News, September 25,1979  In defense of the park  Maryanne's viewpoint  Maryanne West  A couple of weeks ago I  wrote my concern about Cliff  Gilker Park, and that my  pressures from private interest  groups to intrude on a park  which has been set aside for  walking trails for the public  should be resisted. Feedback  from both park users and  golfers has been interesting.  Not surprisingly those who  use and value the Park, its  streams and natural wilderness  trails, feel very strongly about  it. People lor some reason often  ieel very protective about  trees���I wonder if anyone has  done a sociological or  psychological study of the  subject? Park people have  never felt anti-golfer before but  many do so now, "The Golf  Club has a lot of gall to even  think of taking over part of the  Park".  Not, I'm sure, seriously  because most people shake  their heads in disbelief. Why,  they ask, should we send a  delegation to the Regional  Board or run around with  petitions. It has nothing to do  with a numbers game. The  Regional Board cannot give  away to a private interest group  what belongs to the public, not  just the residents of the  Sunshine Coast but to the  people of British Columbia. "It  just doesn't make sense," is the  comment most frequently  heard. There arc those with less  faith in the integrity of  politicians and a petition is  being signed. There is a copy at  the Coast News office.  "It would be stupid to create  a precedent like that, even if  thgy.jiad the right to do so,"  relfec! the pragmatic. Today  it's the Golf Club, tomorrow or  before there would be a whole  raft of other groups who want a  piece of the pie, all with equally  good rationalizations as to  their merit and before you  know it, only a trail down one  side of the creek is left as part of  ihe 'landscaping' for public use.  It doesn't make sense!"  "The Regional Board can't do  that," someone else said,  adding, "it's the same as if I  built a swimming pool in my  yard and then decided it wasn't  big enough and wanted the  Board to allow me' to extend it  into my neighbours yard. And  charge him to use it. It doesn't  make sense."  Someone with a fine sense of  the art of trade-offs came up  with an idea which has brought  a sparkle to the eyes of parents  with small children, horseback  riders and dog owners. "If the  Golf Club gets a quarter of  Cliff Gilker Park for their  private use, they should in  return open up the golf course  to the community for picnics  and for those who would like to  run or walk on all that lovely  green grass. How about  Saturdays and Sundays, that  would be a fair return don't you  think?"  The Park is designated  "wilderness", the lease,  however, describes it as a  recreational park, but  obviously with the intention  that it remain in its natural  state as there are two attached  conditions; that no part of it  may be subleased nor any trees  cut down without the  permission of the Minister.  Golf Club members cite the  problems of popularity and  wonder how much longer it will  be possible to encourage public  use of their facilities unless they  can expand to eighteen holes.  But there isn't by any means  unanimous agreement among  the golfing fraternity that this is  the way to go���I've been  quoted a SO/SO split. Others  believe the club would then lose  its unique and friendly  atmosphere becoming just  another large, impersonal  enterprise, that fees would go  up putting the game out of  reach of many people.  Park people, obviously, are  sympathetic to the golfers  problems, but say not at the  expense of our recreational  facilities. This is thc only park  we have and it's small enough  as it is. My feeling that it is in  reality a very small area is  shared by many who regularly  walk the perimeter trail, some  whose small children now hike  the trail which has been  familiar to them as long as they  can remember, having first seen  it from a backpack or vantage  point on Dad's shoulders.  The late Cliff Gilker in  whose memory the Park is  named, a former chairman of  the Board and director for  Roberts Creek, may have been  ahead of his time, but there can  be little doubt we shall  increasingly, as the area grows  and becomes virtually a  continuation of North and  West Vancouver, have reason  to be grateful to him, his fellow  directors and the government  for their foresight and wisdom  in setting aside this small parcel  of easily accessible land to  remain in its natural state for  the pleasure, refreshment and  recreation of all people.  Carefree gardening '^  by Sandy Loam  THINKING AHEAD: Have  you ever noticed how colourful  sprrjy gardens are in very.early  3S3Sg? Hey Novice! That's  because someone remembered  to plant those bulbs in the fall.  Now is the time to start buying  and planting for Spring colour.  I am always astonished in the  ���Spring when I am in the plant  'Shops and I overhear some  .poor soul asking to buy some  4u!ip, crocus and daffodil  "bulbs. She usually looks  embarrassed when told that  those are planted in the fall.  Driving around she has just  noticed that most gardens are  filled with colour and hers isn't.  Shu is inquiring a little late. Six  ^nonths late. She reminds  herself that it won't happen  again. She will put some in next  fall but who, but a gardener, is  thinking of spring flowers in  the fall? So she forgets again.  "This is your reminder. You  have from now until the end of  eNovember to buy bulbs and put  them in. Why not put this small  fhore on your 'must do' list  ���instead of putting it off.  ~ You should have Tulips,  ..Daffodils, Crocus and  Snowdrops. Anemone,  tjyacinth and Iris are nice too  but never seem as essential and  are a shade more expensive.  You have probably found out  by now how generous most  gardeners are but I'm afraid  you will see thc niggardly side  of iheir nature if you try to  mooch any bulbs. This is  simply not done in the  gardening world. Iris maybe,  but nolhing else.  Planting bulbs is no big deal  and only lakes an hour or so.  Shovel in hand, lift about seven  inches of soil, drep in a handful  ol bulbs, point up and replace  ������the soil. Step on it. Run all over  the garden doing that for an  "Hour or so and whoosh you can  'Jjrag for three weeks. Be good  Jtnd smug about it.

Remember, when planting,  to place the shorter Crocus and  dwarf Tulips in the front of the  garflen���an4. grpup jftK-JaUsu  Tulips and Daffodils just  behind. Avoid row planting as  much as possible as clumping  and grouping is so much  prettier. Just think, one hour in  your garden now will provide  you with all the Spring colour  you will really enjoy. But you  must buy the bulbs and shove  them in, then you can relax for  six months and be surprised  when they poke their little  heads up.  Snowdrops (tons of them)  are a tiny bulb and can be  tossed in EVERYWHERE by  the fistful. They are  particularly lovely as their tiny  white blooms are the very First  to appear, usually against  impossible odds on the first  sunny day in January. In the  thick of miserable, discouraging, bill-paying, rain-  pouring January these little  white flowers pop up in drifts  (if you plant them that way) to  remind us that Spring is really  on the way.  All our local garden shops  have a fine selection of bulbs. If  you are fussy about variety  there are many exotic double,  J,.m fa,-?***!*?-1 >< i ���xypn  available. My favorites have  remained fairly static. In Tulips  I have remained faithful to  dwarf Red Emperor but I also  have lots of the taller, later  blooming types to sway in the  spring breezes. Also I always  buy a few Jonquils, Narcissi  and Anemones for super  special but there are many  more. I have dwarf early-  blooming crocus as well as the  regular in mauve, yellow, white  and striped. Every year I buy a  few more and toss them in.  Most real gardeners lift their  bulbs when bloom is over in  order to get on with their other  chores but I tie the foliage in a  knot to die off on it's own and  leave them in the ground year  after year and keep adding to  them. This is the lazy persons  way and you are reading the  carefree busy Coast Snooze  gardening column. I am rarely  disappointed in Spring and I  don't lose any weight over  trifles.

Rallying to the call for  donations to help make up the  required local community  share, three organizations in  1970 gave more than $5,000  between them. The Women's  Institute presented cheques of  $2,000 and $280; the Fall Fair,  $1,500 and another $500 in  1974; the Howe Sound  Farmers' Institute gave $1,500  and by 1974 another $800. The  United Church Women gave  over $500 in furniture for the  common room and in 1973 the  Fireman's Ball team presented  $100 to the fund. A Christmas  card fund provided nearly $900  between 1970 and 1974.  Roberts Creek was well  represented in donations to the  fund. The Elphinstone  Recreation Association, for  one, gave over $500 raised in a  special bingo in 1973, the  Roberts Creek bingo girls, $ 100  in the same year and the Royal  Canadian Legion Branch 219,  $225 between 1970 and 1974.  Many will remember the  sales of fresh cut flowers by a  group of ladies at a stand in the  Super-Valu. Beginning in 1970  the ladies raised over $500 for  the fund. Canfor employees  donated $300 and a matching  of dollar for dollar at the L & K  log sort between employees and  the company added over  $1,000. The Army, Navy and  Airforce Vets presented a  cheque for $700. From the  Sunshine Coast roller skate  club came $200 in 1970 and in  the same year the OAPA gave  over $200 which they had  collected from their members.  In 1974 the Royal Canadian  Legion Gibsons provided a  washer and dryer for the  apartments laundry.  Some donations took the  form of work on the site-  Fiedler Brothers donated $400  in this way and Ed Johnson of  Universal Timber, $500. And  the land for the building site  which got the project underway  came from Keith Wright and  John Matthews at a 1971 value  of $6,000.  Club members made special  collections at meetings between  1971 and 1974, ran a TV  raffle���the set donated by  member John Harvey from  stock in his furniture store���  and continued with their  customary money-raising  activities like the boat raffle to  bring in the remaining funds,  all of which were on hand  before they were needed in the  development of the project.

Directors disagree  Sewer exchange  Regional Board directors found some cause for disagreement  during the Public Utilities Committee meeting of September 13 oh  the subject of thc desirability of sewer construction on the  Sunshine Coast.  Joe Harrison, Director for Area A, in opposing expensive sewer  development, said "My reading of the people of the Sunshine  Coast is that they are opposed to the high density development  that the Sechelt experience indicates that we can expect."  Harry Almond, Director for Area D, pointed out that some  areas have already grown to the point where problems exist and  that the Board would have to do something about the situation.  Concurring with Almond were Ed Nicholson of Area B and  David Hunter of Area F. "Some areas are already high-risk areas  in environmental matters right now," and Hunter pointed out that  the density in Area F had seen 50 foot lots for 50 years. "People in  my area are asking for sewers right now," said Hunter.  Gibb suggests need  De-regulation  Two letters are to be written to the Ministry of De-Regulation in  Victoria as a result of the deliberations of Regional Board on  September 13.  The first concerned the purchase by the Regional Board of the  Tuwanek and Sandy Hook water systems. The Tuwanek Water  Company withdrew all maintenance of the system on August 31,  1977. The Sandy Hook system is owned by the same company and  is still being maintained.  Director George Gibb questioned why the Regional Board was  having to negotiate purchase of the system with the Tuwanek  Water Company when service had been withdrawn two years ago.  Gibb felt that the Comptroller of Water Rights should have been  able within two years to make a decision which whould make the  current negotiations unnecessary.  The second issue brought to the attention of the Ministry of De-  Regulation concerned the erection of signs on the Sunshine Coast  to indicate beach access paths. The erection of the signs has been  delayed for ten months because the Department of Highways  locally is insisting on maps being drawn by the drafting  department of the Regional Board for each access path before the  signs can be erected.  "It's ridiculous to let ten months go by on paper work so that we  can get some signs in the ground," said Gibb.  Gibsons offers  School Board  home  Gibsons Council has  reaffirmed its offer of property  for the School Board offices at  a rate of $1.00 per annum lease  or an extended 5-year lease at  $1.20 per square foot.  In his introductory remarks  at the Council meeting held on  Tuesday, September 11, Mayor  Lorne Blain said that he felt  Fiction Corner  Coast News, September 25,1979  686-9737  My Government Claim and I  by Margaret E. Slinn  I sat despondently on my  home-made chair by the homemade table. I surveyed the  interior of my one roomed  cabin. One home-made bench,  badly scarred after seven years  abuse, but still it showed traces  that I had made an attempt to  paint it. One very large and  black cook stove, an old-  fashioned iron bedstead  complete with non-descript  springs, a thin mattress, two  grey blankets, a fancy patchwork quilt, a pillow covered  with a flour sack���these things  comprised my furniture. There  were also two shelves attached  stiffly to the south wall on  which rested my few precious  books, a clock and several odds  and ends.  The west wall was really an  artist's gallery. I had saved  calendars every year of the  seven years since I built the  cabin on my government claim.  The calenders were divided into  three groups; animals, scenery  and girls, (listed in order of  preference). The girls were kind  of purty, but a mite short on  duds. However, the thick  calendar paper helped to keep  the snow from blowing in the  cracks of the wall.  The north wall had a hole in  it for the stove pipe to peek  through.  This wall held an  array of cooking utensils. Two  shelves in the corner held with  great courage my very few  chipped dishes.  In the centre of the east wall  was the door and a small  window on each side of it.  The patchwork quilt, the  picture gallery and the door  were a trio of joy to me. On  opening the door in the  morning, the sun bounced in  with a bright morning greeting.  My rough, unpainted board  floor was bare of mats or  scatter rugs. But it was easy to  sweep���just swish over it  because there was nothing in  the way.  How well I remember on my  twenty-first birthday my dad  mentioned quite casually, "Dan  Quinn, you are a fine, strong  young man. Why not get  yourself a homestead?" I was  startled and I must have looked  it, for my dad continued as he  filled his pipe, "Lots of good  land around Regina just for the  asking. Only ten dollars for a  hundred and sixty acres."  "Dad," I was excited, "There  must be some strings attached."  "You must live on the place  six months every year for a  number of years," Dad  explained. "Also clear and  cultivate a portion of the land  every year, and build a cabin."  "Gee, Dad!" I was bubbling  with excitement and anxious to  make a start on this new  adventure.  In a few months I landed on  my government claim, tucked  away in my own little world.  But I can hardly say "little"  because as far as I could see  there was flat, rolling prairie. I  was quite worried by the  absence of neighbors, the  closest ten miles. There were no  women; all the farmers were  bachelors like myself. I  remember Mum had said  before I left my childhood  home, "Son, don't worry.  There'll be families coming in;  you'll not be alone for long."  Dad and Mum loaned me  some money and together with  the bit I'd saved paid for a  team, a wagon and some other  equipment. There were a few  dollars left after I bought a  grub stake which included a  generous supply of dried beans;  there were no canned beans  then.  I slept under the wagon while  building my cabin, but I moved  in before it was half finished. I  worked hard in the fresh air  and I was young and healthy so  I had a tremendous appetite.  The menu was sadly lacking in  variety. Beans with pork and  then pork with beans, no  matter how you look at it can  be tiresome. Hard-tack bread  puts a big strain on the teeth.  The horses fared better because  they foraged for themselves.  They discovered where the best  saskatoons grew. So for awhile  we three made out purty good  on the fresh fruit.  My nearest neighbor was  Ben Linn, an elderly gent and  full of wisdom on many things,  especially on how to live on  almost nothing. He came to be  a source of great comfort to me.

The Department of Fisheries  has undertaken to improve the  wharf to provide better  protection this year and to  complete studies to improve  the available facilities for  commercial fishermen as an  ongoing project.  On the marina project  discussions took place on the  procedure for completing an  application for the requisite  federal funding. A spokesman  for   the   project   expressed  2. Fine goals were scored in the  first half by Joel Sawer on a  penalty shot and Cory  Mottishaw who blasted home  the tier off a corner kick.  In the second half the  Wanderers took St to their  opponents. After a few near  misses Rob Williams chalked  up his second goal in two games  to put our boys ahead for good.  Lex Tierney clinched the game  after a fine effort by Peter  Kenny set him up beautifully.  The team has a face lift this  year with new players replacing  a few retired players. From the'  Elphinstone Junior team, Ken  Kwasnycia, Rob Jonas, Cory  Mottishaw, Mark Jacobson,  Chuck Esslemont and Mark  Boothroyd played a strong,  game in the victory. Captain  Daniel P.

Tell your story  by Carl Chrismas  Have you ever laid down a  poorly written story of an  inconsequential plot and said  to yourself, "Shucks, I can do  better than that!"  Many people have had  thrilling or tragic experiences  during their lifetimes and have  at least one story to tell. But  where do you begin? That is the  problem for most of us. But  now you can learn how to sort  it all out; to build the  framework of your story; close  in the walls; put a roof on it;  cross the 'tV, dot the TV and  send 'er out!  All of the details are in the  Continuing Education paper  recently circulated around the  Sunshine Coast offering a  Creative Writing workshop  with Carolyn Zonailo as the  teacher. I enrolled last year and  found the experience very  rewarding. I learned the level of  competency I had achieved as a  writer; what I must do to turn  what had been a hobby into a  'late-in-life career'; was advised  to learn dialogue���make my  characters   speak   and   act,  rather than tell of their actions;  and many other things that I  discovered by listening to the  problems of others. So for me,  it was very rewarding.  We were all instructed to  keep a 'dream journal' and to  use the resulting material as a  basis for writing short yarns.  Boy, some of the dreams we  were regaled by were lulu's. But  some good short stories came  out of this encounter and with  the help of Carolyn and  criticism of the class after a  reading, we all profited by the  exercise.  Carolyn will edit much of  your material and advise on  how to improve or prepare for  sending it on it's way. She has a  great way of drawing her class  into discussion and participation without being self  conscious. After the first  session you become part ofa  family group and it is possible  to make a lasting friend with  similiar interests.

Words cannot do these  photographs justice, full  impact can only be received by  a visit to the Arts Centre.  The exhibit will open  Saturday, September 29 and  close on Thursday, October 11.  A preview reception and a  chance to meet the artist will  take place on Friday,  September 28 from 7;30 p.m. to  9:30 p.m.  Nomi would also like to  share her knowledge with  photographers in the  community by holding two  workshops on hand coloured  tinting of black and white  photographs. The workshops  are $5.00 per session, one on  Saturday, September 29, 4:00  to 6:00 p.m. and the other on  Thursday, October 11,4:00 to  6:00 p.m. Phone 885-5412 for  registration  welcomed the meeting of the  Women's Aglow on September  18 at Harmony Hall.

This is the overwhelming desire  to cleanse. Firstly I wash my  face and hands, and then my  grimey clothes go to the  washbasket.  Now, I am not a cleanliness  freak, but I do know the saying  "cleanliness is next to  Godliness", and since the first  state seems easier to achieve  than the second���you could  say that I strive after  cleanliness.  Often it's the dirtiest object  which demands a scrubbing���  the back verandah, or the  underside of the dish rack.  Today it was the toilet bowl.  Earlier, (before thc cleaning  began) my daughter discovered  a long spagetti-like coil of  "substance" clinging to the  toilet bowl. We had had  spagetti for dinner, and while it  is slippery, I'd never known it  to slip through quite so  quickly. I blanched at the  memory of text book pictures  of various tapeworms, yards  long, with tenacious heads.  Once I had been unjustly  accused of having pinworms,  and in the resulting official  muddle, my immigration to  Canada was delayed. No one  would admit responsibility for  this "thing" which lurked in the  toilet bowl. Prodding from a  safe distance did not solve the  mystery. At the same time, we  discovered   that   the   water  supply had been inexplicably  shut off, so there was nothing  to do but shut the lid on the  problem.  When the water did return,  hissing and spurting, chocolate  coloured and full of grit, (and  the hot coming out of the cold  tap?) I flushed and cleaned the  toilet bowl.  When the water ran clean  enough , I washed the dishes,  pondering as I did so, whether  this need for water purification  could be my act of contrition,  for all the money I spend in  Vancouver. The splurging of  Chinese food and blue icecreams at Park Royal. The  compulsive buying in  boutiques, the betrayal of diet  at Purdy's chocolate bar.  Today I'd sat cramped in  seven city busses and had  passed through Granville  Street. What better reason for a  hot bath. I scrubbed the bath  before running the hot water.  Pristine white ceramic. But  what was this tea and coffee  grounds which defiled my  white and lovely tub? Ah, mud  and dirt. I let it run until the  water paled and the grit settled  to the bottom. A little texture  will help erase the Vancouver  grease. As a child, I grew up in a  water starved area of Western  Australia where the only water  we had was what was collected  from the roof. If a bird  happened to fall into the tank,  we never discovered it until we  tasted it, and at tank cleaning  time there were usually several  animals which had fallen to a  watery burial in the tank. So I  am not frightened by mud.  I bravely put my feet in the  water, crouched down and  readied for the point of no  return, the bottom plunge.  Being closer to the water, I  could now study the "foreign  substances" in the water. A  wriggly red stripe, three  quarters of an inch ling, came  into view, then another. I could  go no further. It was bottoms  up and away, as visions of  salamanders, tapeworks and  dead birds attacked my feet.  This night I have gone to bed  uncleansed. Tomorrow if the  water doesn't run cleaner, well,  maybe it will rain. Meanwhile,  what about the "thing* in the  toilet boil?  Bridal shower  A surprise miscellaneous  bridal shower for Heather  Wright, bride elect, was held  September 15,1979 at the home  of Verda Schneider. Co-  hostesses were Mava Strom-  quist and Debbie Stromquist.  Many beautiful and useful gifts  were brought to Heather to  wish her happiness , from the  len attending ladies v ,,,  The ladies were served  dinner after which Heather  opened her gifts and then cut  and served a beautifully  decorated cake.  The future groom's mother,  Pam Belanger from Victoria,  journeyed to Gibsons for the  occasion.

Coast News, September 25, 1979  On becoming a Rover  Ramblin^s of a Rover  by Dee Cee  Whenever I think of Acton  Farm I think of "clover  pastures drenched with silver  rain", which is a line from  Service's The Man from  Eldorado. Certainly at times it  rained there or there would  have been no farm but most of  my holidays were during the  summer months and the  weather, as I remember it, was  ideal. Haying and harvesting  grain followed one another in  due rhythm. In the Spring there  were mushrooms in profusion  to be gathered, especially on  neighbouring Stonestile Farm  which my Uncle also owned  and on which sheep had been  grazed for centruies. Where  there are sheep there always  appear to be mushrooms-  why, I cannot explain. On the  farm there were numerous  small ponds, muddy and deep,  in which lurked large coarse  fish. In the evenings the wild  rabbits emerged from the  thickets to feed not only on  grass but, to my Uncle's  annoyance, on the fresh  sprouted fields of barley and  oats. Wild pigeons and rooks  also took their share of the  ripened grain as did pheasants  and partridges, hence the  numerous "shoots" that were  held at the end of Summer  when the fields had been  harvested and only the stubble  remained.  All too soon my holidays  came to a close and it was time  to return to the little town of F.  where my home was and where  my Father had his grocery  store. This time there would be  no going back to school. Those  days, irksome as I had found  them, were behind mc and now  the question of what my future  was - to be and what trade,  profession or occupation I was  to follow had to be settled one  y/ay or the other.  My Dad was and always had  been a very tolerant parent but  he made it very clear, every  time I brought up the matter of  following my brother Alec's  feoWteps antfgoirig ttjsea, thai  ihett was no way he was going  to put out money as he had in  Alec's case to apprentice me to  some shipping company. At the  time I was unaware that not  only my Father but Alec had  regretted it, although my  brother went on to rise from  midshipman on the Colonial  Empire, the last and largest  sailing vessel of it's day, to the  rank of Captain on one of the  ships of the Clan Line. Poor  old Alec. Although perhaps he  hadn't enjoyed certain parts of  his sailing career I haven't a  doubt that there must have  been foreign ports to go ashore  where there were wine, women  and song to be indulged in at  very reasonable prices���atleast  I found that to be the case in  later years!  My Father accepted the fact  that I did not want to become a  grocer, along with my brother  George, so many other  alternatives were suggested.  How about law, the medical  profession, banking and���how  my Mother's eyes brightened���  entering thc Ministry? It had  always been her wish to have a  clergyman son but a more  unlikely, unsuitable and  unwilling candidate for the  priesthood than myself could  hardly have been imagined and  I was adamant in my refusal to  even consider such a calling.  At last my Dad's patience  was exhausted and the question  was asked for the umpteenth  time. All right, what do you  really want to do? This was the  time for the strategy that had  been worked out with Charlie  down in the copse at Acton. I  wanted to go to sea and, before  my Father could hit the roof, I  followed it up with the  suggestion that he did not have  to invest money in an  apprenticeship lor me but I  would apply for a job on one of  the many ships sailing out of  British ports, in any capacity,  on thc deck, in the stewards's  department or, failing  everything else, in the  stokehold or engine room. At  the mention of the latter my  Mother blanched and I thought  she was going to faint dead  away, while my sister broke out  in tears and had to leave the  room. What all this commotion  Vas about I didn't have a clue  but I image they all thought I  was plain daft or consigning  myself to a life of hell  shovelling coal in the bowels of  some ocean liner.

What discussions took place  between my Mother and Dad  and what part my brother  George, who wielded quite a lot  of influence at least with my  Father, took I will never know  but at long last the decision was  reached. Reluctantly my Dad  informed me he would agree to  my going to sea only if I went  about it entirely by myself,  took all the initial steps, wrote  all the letters and, for better of  for worse, accepted the  outcome. I was overjoyed and  silently said a prayer for old  Charlie���his master plan had  paid off! Now I could get going.  I am fairly certain that both my  parents, especially my Mother,  were praying in the opposite  direction that all my  endeavours would come to  nought.  There was writing paper,  envelopes and stamps galore in  the shop's office over which my  sister presided. So now I set to  with a will. More important,  my Father's business at times  entailed transactions in  London so directories of that  city were available. I found the  names and addresses of most of  the larger shipping companies  and wrote to them all���  Cunard, White Star, P. & O.,  etc., etc. What I actually said in  my letters I cannot, after so  many years have elapsed, recall  but the request was always the  same���"did they have an  opening for a boy 16 going 17,  proof of education supplied,  references if required, willing to  work in any capacity for a  minimum wage to start?"  Letter after letter was  dispatched, in all cases a  stamped and addressed  envelope was enclosed for their  reply, and one by one they  returned and in correct and  precise terms I was informed  that regretfully they had no  opening at the present time but  would consider my application  at some later date. Certainly I  became discouraged but I think  it was to my credit I never gave  up. I kept on writing until one  day a long envelope arrived  (not the one I had enclosed)  from the Union Castle  Steamships Ltd., informing me  that they had received my  letter, were interested and  would I kindly present myself  at their offices on, I think it was  Fenchurch Street, at such and  such a time on such and such a  date?  Holy Smoke, was I ever  excited! I was aware that most,  if not all, of their ships were on  the African run���Port Said to  Capetown and all stops in  between, so long before I even  kept the appointment I had the  maps out and was memorizing  the names of all the places I  hoped to visit. I am sure that  my parents were dismayed but  they kept their part of the  bargain and, when the  agonizing days of waiting were  over, on the appointed date, I  was given money for a return  ticket to London and a little  extra for expenses for the day  and, although I did not actually  have their blessing, I was on my  way!  Sechelt  dump road  repair  The garbage dump road in  Sechelt, which has beencausing  problems throughout the  summer, is to have its grade  reduced to 15% in an attempt  to lessen the difficulties of  access.  A low bid of approximately  $40,000 was received from  Fiedler Bros, to take 18,800  cubic yards of gravel from the  hill and store it at the dump for  future fill material.  Works Superintendent  Gordon Dixon proposed the  method of improving the road  but there was some disagreement as to whether a 15% grade  is sufficient improvement as an  access road for heavy vehicles.

George W. Inglis  Sunshine Coast  United Churches  The Christian who desires to  live a life of devotion to the  principles of pure Christian  ethics is finding it increasingly  difficult to be properly  informed.  In the same manner as  churches and church leaders  have moved away from  purposeful and dynamic Bible  study, Christian ethicists have  become increasingly issue-  oriented and have moved away  from the Bible as a source of  authority for doing those  things which conform with  God's will.  There is very little doubt that  the Bible fails to serve as a  specific handbook for facing  ethical issues in the space age  era, where science and  medicine alone have created  literally thousands of problems  which were not dreamed of  2,000 years ago. It is difficult,  for instance, to find a specific  answer to the recent  manipulation of the impregnation process which creates  infants known journalistically  as "test tube babies".  Examples may be found  through the whole gamut of  societal behavior, and scientific  expertise, which have resulted  in many old problems gaining  new emphasis through  increased global communications, and in new problems  receiving instant and worldwide publicity.  How, for example, does a  Christian learn what stance to  take when his aged parent is  passed beyond the normal  functions of life, to all intents  and purposes, and there is a  decision to be made on whether  to cease life-support systems or  not? How may the parents of an  infant with mental defects that  have been pronounced  incurable, and who is also  being kept alive by mechanical  or chemical means, face this  problem with a olfar-gty  decision on their Christian  responsibility?  The answer, unfortunately,  is becoming increasingly  difficult to find, as responsible  Christian ethicists, church  leaders and pastors find the  Bible archaic and irrelevant  and try to find their answers  from sociology, psychology,  biology etc. The result may be  some very exciting discussions  which produce some very neat  and informative publications,  and very little real value to the  individual(s) seeking to make  the responsible Christian  decision.  If the Bible is consulted at all,  it is usually brought in after all  the socio-political factors and  data have been exhausted, and  thc Bible is expected to speak  directly to the issue that has  been isolated, and is often  unique.  One of the difficulites with  thjs approach is that the Bible is  only authoritative when it is  read by the faithful, who are  already committed to doing  God's will, and who seek to be  informed on how to be in right  relationship with God, and not  necessarily how to do each  individual act.  As a "How To Do It" book  the Bible becomes difficult to  apply to today's problems; as a  "How To Live" book, the Bible  serves today, as it has through  the ages, as a dynamic and  nerve-tingling catalyst calling  men and women into the  relationship of faith.  It must also be remembered  that the Bible separated into  fragmaneted "proof-texts",  (which are verses or portions of  verses used to prove a point or  bias) can be made to  substantiate or contradict just  about any facet of human  activity.  Bible texts, used in this  fashion, supported slavery and  the domination of the black  people by the white in the U.S.;  homosexuals use texts to  support their life-style, and  their opponents hammer back  at them with other texts;  . pro-abortionists and anti-  abortionists frequently .stand  back and pelt each other with  piously spoken proof-texts.  It is only when the Bible is  accepted, with faith, as the  Word   of   God,   and   is  recognized as the complete and  continuing   story   of  God's  relationship with man, that it  begins to become helpful to use  it as a guide for Christian  living, and as a clear light with  which to light upourpathways.  "He has showed you, O man,  what is good; and what does  the Lord require of you but  to do justice, and to love  kindness,   and   to   walk  humbly with your God?"  (Micah 6:8)  But to penetrate this  requirement takes diligent  search and recognition that the  Bible spoke to other people in  another culture and another  time, and it addressed specific  situations. To the faithful  community in Palestine in the  1st century, the scripture was  equally remote in its origin and  life-patterns, and yet we find  Jesus was extremely well versed  in scripture, and used it in most  of his teaching sessions as the  unquestioned authority.  He also took the legalistic  concepts of the Mosaic Law  (the rules of ethical behavior  for the Jews) and brought them  up to date in his Sermon on the  Mount (Mt. 5-6-7), to show  people that the scripture is not  a dead, static document, but  the living and dynamic Word of  God.  But this dynamism, this life-  giving power of the Bible can  only be recognized, and  employed as an agent of  reconciliation and witness  through the members of the  believing community, when it is  carefully and reflectively  studied in context and just as  carefully interpreted in the light  of today's needs,  Then the answer will be  found to the question, "What  shall I dor  And the answer will be found  in terms of being not doing!

From Skelly in Ottawa  Fisheries dispute  by Ray Skelly  Tuesday, September 11, 1979  The dispute over U.S.  fishermen pursuing Pacific  tuna into Canadian waters  raises some serious questions  about the value our neighbors  put on the usually good  relations between our two  countries.  Of course, it is not a major  international incident. It will  all be patched up. If the  patching up means Canada will  have to once again give way to  its powerful neighbor, many  Canadians will be annoyed but  I suspect most Canadians are  not anxious to find themselves  involved in some crazy "tuna  war" with the Americans.  Still, there are those nagging  questions about what the  Americans are up to.  Most countries in the world,  including Canada and the U.S.,  have 200 mile fishing zones off  their coasts. But the U.S., along  with Japan, has exempted  albacore tuna from their  declaration and refused to  recognize the 200 mile limit of  other countries as it applies to  tuna.  It is generally known that the  reason for this peculiarity of  U.S. law is the strong lobby of  the California tuna fishing  industry. That's right. It is not  the steel industry or the  General Motors but the tuna  fishermen of San Diego who  wield all this weight in  Washington.  Canada and many South  American countries, who have  also had trouble with the  maurading  Californians,  do  allow foreigners to fish for tuna  within their waters but only  under license. The U.S. law  makes no provision for that  licensing and so it is a simple  case of two laws conflicting and  the U.S. fishermen choosing to  recognize only the law of the  U.S.  It should also be noted that  the U.S. Government has  actually encouraged such an  attitude among its fishermen by  setting up an insurance fund to  cover costs should U.S.  fishermen be arrested fishing in  foreign waters.  Washington's response to  the recent seizures off B.C. was  a formal protest, followed by  threats, followed by an  embargo on Canadian tuna.  Then a congressman from  Louisiana said that affair  jeopardized the U.S. -  Canadian agreement on east  coast fisheries. What will be  next? I do not know if the  gentleman from Louisiana has  any clout but it appears that at  least some people in high places  have not grown much beyond  the gun boat diplomacy of their  19th century predecessors.  There is also a rather archaic  haughtiness about their  attitude: foreign laws aren't  real laws, they seem to be  saying.  All this must be put in the  perspective of other events.  There is a growing movement  in the U.S. which seeks greater  economic interaction with  Canada and Mexico. There is  talk of common markets,  economic union and common  energy policies. This talk comes  from people like Edward  Kennedy, John Connally and  Jerry Brown.  Where are these distinguished and far-sighted  American public officials now  that the whole of U.S. -  Canadian relations is thrown  into turmoil for the sake of the  San Diego tuna lobby?

It is his  first day back at school. He is  32.  Robert is one of the  thousands of adults in the  Vancouver suburban area who  daily go through thc  excruciating embarrassment of  not being able to read or write  even the simplest words.  "Long ago I learned to  recognize the words in Men's  and Women's rooms," says  Robert. "But if even one letter is  scratched out or missing from  the Men's I won't go in for fear  I've got the rooms mixed up."  Because he can't read a  phone book, Robert carries a  series of handy phone numbers  in his pocket.  He shops by recognizing a  picture or a letter on a package,  or squishing the product with  his hands.  The method is not always  foolproof.  "One time I got mustard  when I thought I was getting  ketchup," he grins.  His wife helps him fill out job  and credit card, applications,  income tax forms, UIC forms  and other documents.  When he looks for a street  location he takes a relative  along to read the signs.  Robert and about 50 other  adults who have reading and  writing skills below that of a  Fourth Grade student are  enrolled in group classes at  Douglas College. The program  is in its second year.  Supplementing the group  classes is a new program started  this winter that uses voluntary  tutors to work on a one-to-one  basis with the learners.  Called I Care, the pilot  project is funded on a two year,  $72,000 grant from thc  provincial government. It has  been tried successfully in the  United States and Great  Britain.  Other group programs are  under   way   at    Vancouiitel  Community* College, but still  the number of illiterate adults  who are assisted remains small.  Says Barb Bowmar, head of  the Douglas College program,  "We need more tutors���we  have 15 for 50 student  applicants.  "We need better ways to find  the adults and get them to the  program. We need many,  many more programs like this  one."  The adults who do inquire  about classes are painfully shy  of their handicap.  In a society that presumes  literacy, they cannot decipher a  magazine, a hockey line-up or  candidates on a ballot form.  Many have kept their secret  from wives or friends for years.  One young man who  attended classes was terrified  his employer would find out.  Another had repeated  nightmares about not being  able to read.  Amazingly, some students  have started their own  businesses, where their shortcomings are kept from  customers by a wife or relative  who makes out invoices.  Their ages range from 16 to  76. One elderly student is in his  70's and had never attended  school in his life.  Their earlier school is  remembered with bitterness.  They recall a lack of individual  treatment and insensitive or  unobservant teachers.  "I just kind of fWated  Ihruugh school," says Robert.  "I was told a million differeni  reasons why I couldn't k.i.n to  read. '  Finally a psychiatrist told  n1e I didn't need school anyway  and I should leave. I was 15, in  Grade Six. I was going to leave  anyway; I was so mad and  frustrated."  Ed, 52, who has struggled  with alcoholism says, 'I've pot  GfadeSix.Al leasl the; d  that. 1 think Ihe school system  pushes you ahead jusl to get rid  ol'you."  In thc classroom, I'd reads  from his textbook: "This is a bi|  city. It is a windy city. It is  windy in (his city."  Colette, 16, the most  advanced student in the class,  proudly shows olf a poem  completed in her neat  handwriting. She will graduate,  soon to secondary school skills.  Locally, Continuing  Education    has   launched   a  similar project to start in the  end ol September.  Students pay a $5 registration lee, but the course is free. It  will serve all adults on the  Sunshine Coasl.  The co-ordinator in charge  ol' this program is Sheila Page,  a trained and well recognized  teacher; ihe will meet with thc  volunteers in the end of  September to discuss the best  and mosl effective ways to  teach.  Some adults prefer lo be  : mghl a home and others like  th;' idea ol a sniall classroom  iting where they can  exchangi experience without  misgivings because everybody is in the same situation.  I1!:'.i le help us rettch those  who can't read or write and  those who gave up school after  only a few years of learning.  lutois interested in Adult  Basic Education should  contact SH5-5SSI, Volunteer  Bureau.

OTTAWA���"Rushing more  than 860,000 pounds of  emergency food to Nicaragua  for some 80,000 desperate  victims of the civil war has been  our priority in recent weeks.  Now we are concentrating on  plans for urgently needed  rehabilitation programs," Ray  Rignall,   veteran   of  sixteen  4H&  YOUR AUTOPLAN  CENTRf  Taking care of  __ al I your Real Estate Needs  Seaside Plaza Evenings  886-2000   Norm Peterson   Dennis Suvege  886-9121    886-2607       or 886-7264  years with CARE, the  international aid and  development agency, said on  his return from Nicaragua last  week.  Reluctant to discuss his own  brush with death during  sporadic fire fighting in  Managua, he stressed "the need  to reopen Nicaraguan schools  on schedule in September to  FOR SALE  Concrete Building  Lower Gibson Waterfront  5 Rentals Grossing $1,550 monthly  $160,000  In Good Condition  Can Be Developed Further  886-2791 or 886-9941  begin rehabilitating youngsters  who have been brutally  victimized by the war. Most  schools were closed during the  revolution and many of them  became centres for refugees  who used much of the furniture  as firewood for cooking.  CARE recently imported  equipment for a school  furniture workshop in  Managua where desks and  chairs will be constructed by  Nicaraguans themselves.  CARE also will distribute tools  and equipment to help  Nicaraguans repair the  damaged, schools. That's the  way CARE works���we help the  people to rebuild their own  country."  He pointed to urgent need  for feeding and day care  centres, expanded rural  education programs and work-  skill training for women.  "Many of the women whose  husbands and adolescent  children died during the war  are now the only source of  income for their families. Day  care centres are an obvious  priority   need  in   Nicaragua  where such tragic family break  down followed the war. CARE  staff members on the scene arc  anxious to get on with  expanded rehabilitation and  reconstruction projects. We  will do so when the necessary  arrangements are made and as  soon as donations come in and  funds permit," he said.  Mr. Rignall confirmed that  CARE is also rushing drugs  and medical supplies to  Nicaragua from Guatemala.  Earlier shipments of relief loud  were flown into Nicaragua  from both Guatemala and  Costa Rica, two-of the more  than thirty-five developing  countries in Africa, Asia, Latin  America and the Middle East  wher CARE has ongoing  programs. In Nicaragua these  programs included construction of schools and water  systems as well as providing  improved rural health care  through MEDICO, thc  agency's medical arm. CARE  also helped reconstruction  following the earthquake that  devastated Managua in 1972.  Donations may bc sent to  CARE, Nicaraguan Relief and  Rehabilitation Fund, Dept. 4,  1312 Bank St., Ottawa. K1S  5H7.
