Array '"  The Sunshine  Published at Gibsons, B.C.  15* per copy on newsstands  Serving the Sunshine Coast since 1945  October 3,1978  Volume 31, Number 40  Contractor questioned  School construction troublesome  A Port Mellon employee gives evidence of a sense  of humour with this No Fishing sign on the dike  containing the oil spill at Port Mellon last week.  Approximately 440,000 gallons of Bunker C oil  were contained, narrowly averting a major oil  spill. It is suspected that a plate at the bottom of  'the bulk storage tank ruptured.  The regular meeting of the  Board of School Trustees of  School District Mb (Sechell)  was held, commencing at 7:30  p.m. al the School Board office  in Gibsons. Attending were  Trustees Maureen Clayton,  Kay Dombroskl, Tim Frizzell.  Peter Precesky. Joanne Rot-  luff, and Claus Spiekermann  with Trustee Don Douglas as  Chairman, along with District  Superintendent John Denley and Acting Secretary-  Treasurer Lloyd Yorkston.  Also in attendance as observers, in addition to members of  the press, were Sechelt Teachers' Association President  Doris Fuller, Maintenance  Superintendent Bob Rutter,  Supervisor of Instruction/  Acting Principal of Pender  Harbour Secondary School  John Nicholson, and Co-ordinator of Educational Resources  Dave Hellcm. Two people  from CM. Projects were also  present to report to thc Board  on construction at the Pender  Harbour School, and to present a report on progress in  the matter of the new school  to be erected on Bowen Island.

For years the Sunshine Coast has had  Ihe potential lor being a center for music,  drama, and craftsmen of all kinds and  yel these aspects of human activity  have received little encouragement from  our governing bodies. It seems shortsighted in the extreme to withhold  encouragement from thc talented folk  lhal the Coast has attracted over the  years,  We hear constantly from'every corner  of the area aboul how important it is  tu our economy that tourists be attracted  here and considerable monies and  energies are spent attracting them.  When we get them here, however,  it seems we throw up our hands and  leave il up lo our scenery lo entertain  llieni. How much belter would il be if  Joe and Edith Traveller from Alberta  or Washington could come into our  area and spend a few davs browsing  through little stoics specializing in the  eiallwork and artwork produced locally  and in the evening ill decent and comfortable surroundings attend musical or  dramatic presentations all locally produced.  There is a tendency on the part of the  business community and thc Chambers  of Commerce lo regard those involved in  ails and crafts, music and drama, as  somehow frivolous and they are generally  ignored in favour of ice arenas and halls  iu which young people can bc marched  around. And yet such people, the artists and the craftsmen, the musicians.  and thc actors can be a real resource,  economic as well as spiritual. In the  final analysis if we wauled to have  communities here as unique for visitors  as our scenery is we would be encouraging the cottage industries of Ihe arls  and crafts and lhc practitioners of music  and drama to stay and work locally.  It is a simple and obvious fuel that tour,  isls do not travel to visit Building Supply  places or to inspect real estate subdivisions. With imagination and encouragement we could still make the Sunshine  Coast a unique, charming and invigorating place where, when tourists  arrived here, they would be delighted  at the scope and variety of filings to see  and buy and do. We are so painfully  close. We have the people who could  make this vision a reality but so far we  have almost totally failed to encourage  I hem.  We are not calling here for handouts  and subsidies, we are only commenting  that the quality of an area is not gauged  by its swimming pools and curling clubs  alone. Recreation does indeed encompass  the arls and crafts and, further, that a  community with an active, productive  admixture of artists and craftsmen is a  community which visitors from elsewhere find attractive enough to visit  for more than just a tew hours.  It could be said that the Arts Centre in  Sechelt now under construction is a  step in the right direction bul il is a  small and belated step. There is so much  more that might be done if the problem  were addressed with imagination and  energy. If we of the Sunshine Coast want  to fashion of our developing area something of individuality and uniqueness  perhaps there is still time to give the  matter some thought and explore the possibilities. The alternative, let's face it,  is to make of this exceptional environment a dreary suburbia. Only the leavening of the unlettered and encouraged  energies of creative individuals can  make il anything else.  Some questions about schools  It would appear thai there may bc some  cause for concern over what is happening  in Ihe local school district and particularly al thc administratipn level. Both in  Pender Harbour and at Elphinstone there  have been recent,changes in the high  school principals and in both cases some  question must remain about the reasons  lor lhc changes.  Further, when the chair was challenged at the most recent school board  meeting on ihe specific question of more  community involvement in the selection  of school principals it became apparent  lhal at least some of lhc school trustees  are concerned aboul thc manner in which  principals arc 'placed in and perhaps  rcniovcd from office.,  Ihere are Iwo points lo be made.  First, iii Pender Harbour we have a  senior  staff' administrator  performing  the duties of principal and doing the  job very well from what we can gather.  The question is, at thc salaries such men  are paid how can hc be so easily spared  from his normal duties for such an extended period of time. And secondly,  the changeover at Elphinstone which  sees an ex-administrator at top salary on  staff to teach an elementary school grade  on Bowen Island, a situation duplicated  in Sechelt, does not speak highly for  the money management policies of this  school board.  Perhaps it is time we reminded ourselves that the authority for education  in the school district rests with the trustees and that Superintendents arc hired  to advise them on the quality of education. And it may also be time to wonder  about the increasing proportion of school  board business conducted in camera.  .. .from the files of Coast News  5 YEARS AGO  A charge of arson has been laid  in connection with the recent fire at  Elphinstone Secondary School.  Captain Gordon Scott' Hopkins,  son ol the founder of Hopkins Landing, died in Vancouver in his 89th  year.  10 YEARS AGO  A 300 foot spawning channel for  cutthroat trout has been constructed  by the Fisheries Management Division of the Provincial Fish and Wildlife Branch at Ruby Lake.  Mammoth fishing derbies have  been criticized by the B.C. Wildlife Federation.  15 YEARS AGO  James Paton of the Community  Resources Branch of the Department  of Education spoke locally in favour  of having a recreation director for  the Port Mellon to Pender Harbour  area.  New Democratic candidate Tony  Gargrave was re-elected to the  provincial legislature with a majority  of 346over Mrs. Isabel Dawson.  20 YEARS AGO  Greenlees Piledriving Co. of Vancouver submitted the low bid for  improvements in Gibsons Harbour.

The aboriginal name for the river  mouth here, where the lake was almost level with the sea, was  TUSH���KWE���AHT. By 1910 a railroad operation had already  carried much timber to tidewater at Michigan Landing, now  called Willingdon Beach Park. The site seen here was chosen  for a paper mill because of an abundance of fresh water for  power and processing. No other mill anywhere has been able  to secure exclusive use of a natural lake sixty miles long.  Construction began in 1910, and newsprint was first shipped  in 1912, some of it on sailing ships. From its beginnings,  Powell River was a big plant. As new machines were added,  Powell Lake's resources became inadequate. During the 1920s  water from the Gordon Pasha Lakes was sent through pipes  to turbines installed at Stillwater. After World War II, the distinctive concrete stacks were dismantled. By 1957, additional  hydro-electric power was brought in from Cheekeye, and this  line was later doubled. A merger of the Powell River Company  with MacMillan Bloedel created one of the great forest enterprises of the world. Now a further gigantic expansion programme is planned to maintain the international pre-eminence  of our neighbour to the north as a producer of paper.  L.R.Peterson  Slings & Arrows  George Matthews  I wandered into Peter  Trower's place the other day  as is my occasional wont and  found him entertaining an old  friend of whom I had often  heard but never met. Ted  Poole was a long-time resident of the Sunshine Coast  but in recent years lias been  comfortably ensconced  in the interior of British  Columbia.  The talk turned, as good  talk will, in many directions  and after a while I asked Ted  if he had been doing any  writing of late, knowing that  he had done some successful writing in the past.  "No." said led, "I've  learned a thing or two from my  old dog. I've learned that if  I can just avoid scratching  that first (lea bite then I can  lie still. My idea of the  successful life," he continued,  "is one in which fifty percent  of every day can be spent  in doing exactly what you  want to do."  As a long-time devotee of  the benefits of absolute inertia I heartily agreed, only  demurring to the extent  that I found his percentage  rather on the low side.  Avoidable busyness is one  of the besetting sins of our  species. I would suggest.  We may have reached a point  in our societal development  when a little less doing and  a little more reflecting ubout  w bal should be done might  hea valuable thing.  I am reminded of a hobo  I once saw iu Genoa in Italy.  Wc were travelling by rather  primitive tourist class from  Marseilles to Naples on a  Turkish boat and we made a  stop of a lew hours iu Genoa  and look the opportunity uf  making a brief walking tour  of a small area of the city  just above the harbour.  The highway wound in  tortuous curves up the side  of the cliff, great sweeps to  the left followed immediately  by equal sweeps to the right  as the road climbed the hill  in a series of switchbacks,  It was bustling with traffic  and Italians seemed to drive  with great energy, throwing  llieir usually liny cars into  each corner witli abandon and  leaning on lhc horn at each  corner witli what can only  lie called enthusiasm, The  result was a modern-day  cacophony of screaming engines, squealing lircs and  blaring horns.  We climbed lhc hill, as I  recall,    about    halfway   and  stopped and rested to overlook thc harbour und thc  Mediterranean and thc hobo  was sitting below us on the  grass between two bends of  the road. Below and above  him the automobiles hurtled  noisily by, but he seemed  most admirably oblivious.  As we first noticed him he  was just settling himself  down and opening bis old  knapsack. With infinite  deliberation he took from it a  large tin which once upon a  time in its commercial days  had held about two pounds of  something. It was filled now  with something white that  might have been rice and once  he had opened it and placed  it securely by his side to his  entire satisfaction, he rummaged once more in the knapsack and produced a spoon.  If it was indeed rice he ate  I am sure that not a single  grain escaped him. Slowly  und deliberately and witli  infinite precision and care  and obvious relish he worked  his way through the entire  tinful. We watched in fascination, thc harbour forgotten.  He was an island of collected serenity surrounded  on all sides by blaring and  hasty confusion.  When at last his measured  repast was done, he put a  lid on his empty tin, cleaned  his spoon with infinite care  and replaced (hem in his  knapsack. Now he rummaged  deeper and broughl out a  legless, wire-rimmed pair of  spectacles and a needle and  thread und with the same air  of precise deliberation began  to patch his ancient jacket.  We watched undetected from  our vantage point above him  und there was much that was  soothing in the old man's  painstaking and unhurried  stillness. When it came time  for us to return to the harbour to take to thc ship  again he was still quietly  needling and threading,  timeless in the midst of the  blare and haste of life in the  industrial age.  I am not recommending, of  course, that the future lies  ahead which would make it  possible or desirable for all  of us to emulate the hobo  in Genoa . but there was  something in his stillness and  simplicity which seemed  worthy of nolo. He was obviously a man who had learnt  to make do with what he  needed as opposed to what lie  could want. He was a man  whose every action was carefully forethought and neces  sary or not undertaken.  For the most part thc  traffic around him seemed  like modem society: noisy  and assertive and alive  with dangerous and unnecessary urgency, wasteful and  expensive motion for motion's  own sake.  The dichotomy of the hobo  and the traffic also seems a  reflection of our limes. We  have those who never rest,  scheming, dreaming, acquiring, and asserting and we  have those who idle by doing  as little as possible. What wc  need, perhaps, is a time of  synthesis, a coming together  in us all of activity and reflection.  If I seem lo lake the side of  Ihe hobo in this little musing  il is because he is generally,  as lie was in Genoa, badly  outnumbered. The deliberate  and undemanding and reflective approach to life is  the one which our modem  ways militate against.  In the last analysis we are  the traffic in Genoa. A little  of the hobo's thoughtful  stillness and economy of  motion might not he a bad  idea.  OriaJMSVK  The other day 1 overheard a  kid ask his mother what  "beatnik" meant. 1 didn't  catch the answer but from thc  pensive look on her face I  concluded she was hard  pressed to define that ancient  expression. Ihe woman  looked to be about forty years  old and so would certainly  have lived through that era  of the 1950's and even though  she may never have heard of  Jack Kerouac she should have  been able to supply the  desired definition.  I did catch the word "hip-  pics" from mother's lips and  it occurred to me that that  often misused word is beginning to go the same way as  beatnik. Beatniks in the  fifties, hippies in thc sixties;  where are the anarchists  of the seventies? The truth is  there aren't any. Thc struggle for affluence, respectability, conformity and yes,  mediocrity has become so  intense that even the most  individualistic non-conformists are hustling for a piece of  the action.  I can recollect a few of the  last gasps of hippiedom  in the days when the plieno-  ��1  To Autumn  Season of mists and mellow Iruitlulness,  Close bosom-friend ol the maturing sun;  Conspiring with him how to load and bless  With truit the vines that round the thatch-eves/  run:  To bend with apples the mossed cottage-trees,  And lill all truit with ripeness to the core;  To swell the gourd, and plump the hazel shells  Wilh a sweet kernel; to set budding more,  And still more, later /lowers tor the bees,  Until they think warm days will never cease,  For Summer has o'er-brimmed their clammy  cells.

There were the  city boys trying to bc farmers;  the genteel daughters of thc  wealthy producing niacramc  and children in the back of  dilapidated vans or crummy  shacks; the children of stock-'  brokers and corporate vice-  presidents raising potatoes  and chickens; and scruffy  collections of shaggy young  men and poorly dressed  young women huddled by.  oil lamps and candles engaged  in encounter sessions or'  reading the I Ching.  Those looking for alternate'  lifestyles in Ihe sixties and'  early seventies mostly found  the life tedious, laborious  and downright uninteresting^  and only Ihe strong survived.  Alternate lifestyles are a  necessary pari of our society.  They give us choices, they  make us ask questions aboul  our own lives, the answers to  which can give us stronger  and more meaningful existences. The city boys are back in  llie city now. the children of  vans and shacks arc in private  schools in Pasadena, stockbrokers' children are stockbrokers, corporate vice-  presidents' are corporate  vice-presidents and all's  right with the world. But  somehow wc arc the poorer  for their passing. Ihe hope  rests with the survivors.  I received a message from  some of Ihe survivors lasl  week.

Working within a very  limited budget the Board of  Trustees arc charged with Ihe  responsibility of providing thc  best possible medical service  for the Community.  The Board of Trustees are  committed to this goal.  They are determined lo  make our clinic the best of  its kind in British Columbia.  To accomplish this the  Board of Trustees must hire  the most qualified and experienced staff Ihat their budget  will allow.  To permit other considerations lo influence their  decision in this respect would  bc to abandon their responsibility.  Our medical receptionist  not  only  must  be  qualified  in typing, record keeping and  general office routine but also  must have an intimate knowledge of the proper handling  of medical files. She must  have an understanding of  laboratory techniques and to  assist in them where required.  She must have experience  in collating the material from  laboratory and other tests  with other information contained in lhc medical file.  The medical file is the  centre of lhc system.  The medical staff depend  upon il to give proper treatment to thc patient.  Our medical receptionist  is extremely well trained and  has a wide experience in this  work.  To suggest thai Ihis knowledge can be picked up within a short time is not Irue.  Thank you again for your  interest, we will be looking  forward to your joining the  Society and actively assisting us in providing a first  class clinic for the people  of lhc Pender Harbour and  Eg mon I Distriel.  Yours Sincerely,  J.H.Tyner, President,  Pender Harbour & District,  Health Centre Society  Editor:  We the children of Grades  6 and 7 at Langdale Elementary School are having a raffle.

The dog refused and  went home. Perhaps this was  just a friendly gesture on the  dog-catcher's part, but one  cannot help wondering what  this man was doing so far outside his jurisdiction in working  hours. A check with the Municipal Hall confirmed that his  powers did nol extend outside  Village boundaries. This area  is ten miles from Gibsons.  Ecumenical  . Dear Sir:  Thank you for this opportunity to let the people of the  Sunshine Coast know about  an Ecumenical Service to  be held at Holy Family  Church on October' 8 at 7:30  o'clock.  This will signal thc opening  of the Fall series of Bible  Studies.  It is a good thing, once in  a while, to forget our differences and concentrate on  those things upon which we  arc agreed, especially those  which have to do with our  life and happiness.  There will be further  announcements of thc subjects to bc discussed and  place and time of meeting.  Those of you who have attended thc studies before will  remember what good times  wc had and will look forward  to a renewal of friendships  made then.  Alice Tavlor  Had the dog-catcher picked  up this or one of the other  dogs in this neighbourhood,  the owners, and neighbours  would undoubtedly have spent  considerable time searching  the neighbourhood for the  lost pet. probably worried that  the animal might have been  killed by a cougar.  There has also been a report  of the dog-catcher operating  in the Langdale area. It is to  bc hoped this man will have  the boundaries wherein he  may operate firmly pointed  out to him. P,et owners outside Village boundaries, if  you lose your pet, cheek first  with the Pound. It seems the  dog-catcher wanders farther  than the dogs.  Inga M.

Coast News, October 3,1978.  lajwij ��r^ Uvi  Buckling Swashes in  Smuggler's Country  Historical romances arc  rather like science-fiction in  reverse. Instead of being flung  forward into the near or  remote future, one is drawn  inexorably back to whatever  period the author h;ts chosen  to recreate Ihe effectiveness  ol such stories is determined  primarily b) the writer's  skill al spinning a good  yarn but accurate research  is also of ureal importance.  More than one otherwise-  excellent tale has been Hawed  by glaring contradictions of  established fact or patently-  incorrect background details.  Fortunately, the best historical novelists arc quite scrupulous in this regard.  Many of the belter-known  historical novels have been  filmed with varying degrees  of success. Some of lhc all-  lime classics include: Mutiny  On The Bounty (lhc original);  Gone With The Wind; Scara-  niouche; Spartacus and A  Tale Of Two Cities. Unfortunately, a good many promising properties have arrived  on Ihe screen, seriously  marred by inappropriate  casting or shoddy production-  values. The believable  recreation of any bygone  era is a taxing and tricky  business at thc best of times  and there have been many  costly failures. It is gratifying to report that the  U.B.C. scries Poldark (which  recently concluded its second  season on I'.B.S.) is definitely  nol one of these.  Poldark is a rousing success  on all counts. Based on thc  previously not-too-well-  known novels by Winston  Graham, it is set in late  18th-century Cornwall and  concerns ihe adventures of  Ross Poldark. a professional  soldier turned tin-mine  owner. As the sprawling  saga opens. Poldark has jusl  returned from a gruelling  session with his regiment in  lire American Revolutionary  War lo find the family estate  Pages from a Life-Log  Peter Trower  a rundown shambles and  his former sweetheart. Elizabeth, betrothed lo his cousin  Francis. Ihe Poldark manse  has been supposedly in the  care ol two drunken servants,  Judd ami ins common-law  wile. Prudcy. Surprised by  Koss' unexpected arrival and  spurred on b) his anger, they  grumblingh sel about clcan-  ing-up lhc long-neglected  house. Ihe matter of Elizabeth however. Poldark is  unable to pul right. Hc has  slaved awa> loo long. She and  Francis are married.  Poldark (played wilh style  and conviction by Robin Ellis)  is anything bul a cardboard  character. Often hot-headed  and given lo impetuous action,  he does not suffer thc loss  gladly. But there is little he  can do. Elizabeth has made  her choice. Accordingly, hc  throws himself into the task  of putting the derelict farm  back in order and seeks  romantic solace wiih a sympathetic strumpet in the nearby  town.  Poldark perseveres with his  bare-subsistence-level farm.  While attending a village-  fair, he conies lo thc rescue  of a grubby waif called  Demelza who is about to  receive a beating from a  stall-keeper she has attempted  to rob. Hc buys the ragged  girl a meal and she attaches  herself to him like a stray  dog. Ross ends by taking her  home with him to work as a  housemaid. Her drunken,  ne'er-do-well father attempts  lo reclaim her but Poldark  stands firm. Under the.  dirt. Demelza (played by  Welsh actress Angharad  Rees) proves to be a strikingly-pretty girl but Ross,  still obsessed with Elizabeth,  pays sniall heed lo her charms  at first.  Part of the threadbare  Poldark legacy is a supposedly  worked-out  tin-mine.  Gamb  ling that the shafts must still  contain some marketable ore,  Ross at length, reopens it.  He reemploys several of the  villagers who formerly worked  Ihere and begins to eke out a  slightly better living than the  threadbare farm is affording  him. But it is a nip-and-  tuck proposition from the outset. Poldark continues to carry  a darkly-smouldering torch  for the aloof Elizabeth and is  not above trying to cuckold  his cousin for whom he has  sniall respect. But his former  sweetheart (a thin, rather icy  blonde played by Jill Town-  send, who seems scarcely  worth all the trouble) gives  him sniall encouragement.  She bears a son to the weak  and dissolute Francis. In his  frustration, Poldark turns  to the blossoming Demelza  who has fallen in love with  him and is not at all averse.  She in turn, becomes pregnant. Thc child of their  illicit union is stillborn but  Poldark, largely motivated by  guilt, marries her.  A progressive young doctor  called Dwight comes to the  remote area to set up practice  and, in a tragic sub-plot,  becomes involved with the  wife of one of Poldark's  miners, a former travelling  actress, bored with her lot.  The miner learns of the affair  and in a fit of rage, kills his  unfaithful spouse. He subsequently flees to France. A  second subsidiary plot-thread  involves another of Poldark's  employees, a sickly youth  who, despite Ross' intercession, receives two years for  poaching. (This incident  is seemingly inserted more to  emphasize the barbarous  laws and prison conditions  of the time than anything  else.) The frail lad subsequently dies as a direct  result of his incarceration.  Before long, Poldark  himself becomes caught up  in the brutal legal machinery  of the period. A troop of  soldiers has been stationed  in the locality in an effort lo  curb the rampant smuggling,  a traditional activity on the  rugged coast with its proximity to France. One stormy  night, a ship is wrecked on  the rockv shore near Poldark's  farm. When he goes down lo  investigate, he finds a mob  of villagers engaged in looting thc stricken vessel. Ross  attempts to enlist some of  them in the rescue of survivors  but times arc hard and the  men are dead-set on booty.  The soldiers appear on the  scene and a pitched battle  ensues. Poldark is arrested  along with a number of the  villagers. When the case  comes before the magistrates.  Ross is astounded to find  himself charged with inciting  to riot. The chief witness to  this false accusation is his  drunken man-servant Judd  who has been bribed by the  Warleggans, two unscrupulous bankers, father and son.  with whom Poldark has  incurred an earlier enmity.  They arc anxious to bring  about his downfall. Fortunately for Poldark, the confused  and bibulous Judd recants  his false testimony on thc  stand, thus saving his master  from the hangman. Many of  the villagers however, arc  sentenced to transportation  for their part in the looting.  For reneging on his bargain,  the unfortunate Judd is set  upon by thugs in thc employ  of the dastardly Warleggans  and left for dead. He is only  in a coma however and revives in time for his own wake.  Poldark returns to the operation of his struggling mine.  Demelza has another legitimate child which this time  lives. Dwight the doctor,  now Poldark's closest friend,  becomes involved with one  of his patients, the wealthy  Lady Caroline and they eventually marry. Beset by financial pressures, Ross unwisely  allows a local smuggler to  Please turn to page six  1 YEAR TERM DEPOSITS  'Redeemable before Maturity at a reduced rate of interest.

The Buddy Holly  Ston1 will be on view Wednesday through Saturday,  October 4���7. Wednesday  and Thursday, October 4  and 5. the film will be shown  at thc regular hour of 8:01)  p.m. On Friday, October  6, show lime will be 7:00 p.m.  and there will be Iwo shows on  .Saturday, October 7. with  starting limes of 7:00 and  <>:00p.m.  Il is perhaps possible that  an entire generation is listening to Buddy Holly songs  without being aware of it.  His songs have been recorded by the likes of Linda Ron-  stadt, the Beatles, and many  others. This film helps to pul  thc bespectacled rockabilly  from Lubbock. Texas, into  historical perspective.  Through naivete and per  sistence Holly demanded  and got his own way. In this  Fred Bauer production we  see Ihe results of that  persistence: a clean fresh  sound with innovative rhythms, harmonies, and instrumentation. The best scenes  in the movie arc those which  recreate with llavourful  authenticity Ihe joy and  energy of early rock and roll.  Talented Gary Buscy por-  trays Holly with a charming  relaxed quality which balances  nicely with the intensity of  his feelings about his music  and Maria Richwine is particularly endearing as Holly's  wife.  The second feature of the  week will be shown Sunday  through Tuesday, October  11���13, at 8:00p.m. each  night. It is Confessions of a  Summer Camp Counsellor  and il carries thc censor's  warning thai it contains some  sex and suggestive dialogue.  Music Horizon  By Mike Evans  Just to clear up sonic old  business...the Boston concert  several weeks ago in the  Pacific Coliseum.  It was awful. Thc volume  was actually physically  painful, the sound quality  was disgusting and the  stage show was laughable.  And to lop it off, Tom Scholz  was a frozen, timid dud.  Ain't he supposed to be whai  Boston's all about? Yet silling through the smashing  blare of confusion I detected  traces ofa good band, but the  aforementioned W sound and  mixing successfully camouflaged it.  New business...the latest  Pablo Cruise album "Worlds  Away".  Even   though    their   first  allium, "A Place in the Sun"  is one of my favourites 1  think this latest effort is  better. Not only is their single  "Love Will Find a Way"  au able successor to "What-  cha Gonna Do", thc rest of  the album has much more  depth. Just listen to songs  like "Family Man", "Run-  nin" or especially "Don't  Wanna Live Without It".  And then there's "Out To  Lose" and the delightfully  exuberant "Rio". Several  of these songs could make  it as singles, which is why  Ihis album really gets moving  .and never loses momentum.  Particularly impressive is  Pablo Cruise's ability to translate mood and feeling into  music, lhc tragic and powerful message in "Family  Man"   is   accompanied   with  Grwii  >i  1��  I  c  ���r  cnil'^TEfb  886-2827  GIBSONS  JL JL JLJLi  BUDDY  HOLLY  Wed., Thurs., Oct.  4th, 5th at   8 p.m  Sat., 7th,  Two Shows, 7 p.m. and 9 p.m.  STORY  Fri., 6th,  One Show, 7 p.m.  Double Late Night Horror   grffilET^  11:00p.m., Sunday October8  Theatre of Blood  and   Mark of the Vampire  Sun., Mon., Tues.

General Notes: The New  Moon conjunct the Sun,  Mercury, and Pluto indicates  a time for new starts based  on recent negotiations, discussions and decisions. Fresh  agreements have now to be  applied without hesitation or  regrets. Because wc arc in  the middle of a two-week  trend, the following prognostications will be similar  to those of last week.  ARIES (March 21-April 19)  Emphasis is still on working  out problems with loved ones  and close associates. Definite  decisions have to be made now  if marriages and partnerships  are to run more smoothly.  Honest communication and  willingness to accept inevitable changes become key  issues.  TAURUS (April 20-May 20)  Major changes linked to  health and employment matters must now be accepted  philosophically. Those actually working must familiarize  themselves with new procedures or techniques. Health  and keep-fit fadists must  prepare to adjust their daily  routines. Those seeking a  second medical opinion should  hesitate no longer.  GEMINI (May 21-Junc 21)  Prepare to take a new  route in the pursuit of amusements, pleasures, romance,  risks, and speculation. It's  time to question stale social  life and seek out more stimulating gratifications with  happier companions. Recent  love affairs may fade in favour  of more intriguing temptations.  CANCER (June 22-July 22)  Accent is still on major  domestic changes. Make sure  that all family members  understand the reasons for  upheavals and fresh starts.  Don't blame yourself for confusions, instability and shakcy  home life. Time is running  short for the signing of  real estate or rental agreements. Those leaving home  will eventually bc glad they  did.  tragic and powerful music;  "Sailing to Paradise" captures a comfortable, breezy  mood, and "Rio"! When 1  heard that song I could just  sec some crazy Latin American carnival. Isn't that what  good song writing is meant  to do?  "Worlds Away" also more  clearly defines Pablo Cruise's  style as a mixture of Disco  and Rock founded on a Latin  American beat. Within this  framework a very tasteful  and refreshing album has  emerged. I look forward to  their concert this Wednesday.

It's a hectic week of  rushed journeys, dramatic  phone calls and messages.  Any threatening correspondence should bc put aside  till next week. Brothers,  sisters, relatives or neighbours arc linked to endings  and fresh beginnings. Drive  carefully.  VIRGO (Aug.23-Sept.22)  Decisions regarding personal financial situation  can no longer be delayed.  Failing lo act may tempt  others to take over resources.  Seek expert advice regarding  settling of debts or new speculative ventures. Guard possessions and leave cash at  home. Avoid purchase of  major items.  LIBRA (Sept.23-Oct.23)  Spotlight is still on you,  especially personality and  appearance. Now's the time  to quit bad habits and mannerisms. You have to become  more forceful and show firmer  control of day-to-day situations. Prepare to surprise  others with more positive  attitude and aggressiveness.  October 2nd birthdays face  twelve months of new beginnings.  SCORPIO (Ocl.24-Nov.22)  Recent private activities,  secret involvements and intrigues may soon lose control,  exposing all and shocking  everyone. Advice is to hideaway until the gossip-mongers  have had their day. Seek seclusion to prepare explanations  and excuses. Meanwhile,  major changes will be linked  to the sick and lonely, the  confused and deceived.Shame  on vou!  SAGITTARIUS (Nov.23-  Dec.21)  Whether you like it or not,  some long-time friendships  now, have to end. You're ready  to meet new faces, share original ideas and forge ahead  with fresh hopes and wishes.  Meanwhile. your oldest  acquaintances arc ready to  take new directions so wish  them luck. A few of you may  soon become bored with local  group activities or projects.  CAPRICORN (Dec.22-Jan.19)  Hopefully you have been  preserving or protecting your  reputation and position.

John Burnside and Tim  McHugh gave excellent  performances as caricatures &  of an R.C.M.P. constable and  corporal, and Tim McHugh,  in the rather more substantial  part of the corporal, came  close to stealing the show.  One or two of the other  performers could have emulated his timing with his  lines rather than have rushed  into them before the audience's laughter had sufficiently subsided. A few good  lines were lost in this way.  Mary Doray and Dennis  Bailey, as Gus and Morris  Gelbin, were only on stage  for the final scene of thc play,  but they made the most of  their small roles.  The set designer and stage  manager are particularly to  be commended for compensating as well as they did  for thc sniall and shallow  stage at thc Twilight Theatre.  There can be no doubt that  this often created difficulties  for the performers, particularly during thc more crowded moments in the play.  Footlights would have improved the set visually, and  the lighting generally was  inadequate. There are larger  and better lit stages available, but these are in school  gymnasiums with painful  acoustic.  In spite of the shortcomings  of the Twilight Theatre's  stage, there can be no doubt  that this is the most suitable performing space on the  Sunshine Coast. The Driftwood Players certainly made  the most of their material  and the performing space, and  all involved are to be congratulated for presenting  this lively entertainment. It  is indeed pleasing to witness this reactivation of the  Driftwood Players, and I  hope there will be more to  come.

This wc magic, warmth and humour to  certainly intend to continue.  Ten minutes BEFORE nine  is the LATEST time recommended  for  arrival.  It is gratifying to note that  more than one third of those  who came to our first presentation took the few seconds  necessary to fill in the  ballots rating the film presentations thus making it possible  to offer a fair assessment of  thc audience's reaction to the  filnis. Films are graded:  "Excellent", "Very Good",  "Good", "Fair", or "Poor",  and the number of votes in  each category arc expressed  as percentages. These figures  are synthesized in a further  figure termed an audience  "Reaction Index" which can  vary from 100 down to zero,  "Excellent" counting as  1, "Very Good" as 0.75,  "Good" as 0.5, "Fair" as  0.25, while "Poor" counts  zero. Above you will find the  figures for the Film Society's  most recent programme.  It will bc noted that the  audience's reaction to the  Mickey Mouse cartoons was  more favourable than it was  for the Woody Allen feature.  There is always more than  one way of looking at figures,  however, and so it will also  be noted that nobody rated the  Allen film, "Poor", and many  less rated it as low as "Fair",  as did they for the cartoons.  One person rated the cartoons  "Yick" (under "Poor").  On the other hand, one  viewer commented on the brilliance of the colours, the  backgrounds, the drawings  and the animation; about just  how elaborate and expensive  to produce were these cartoons from earlier times.  (1978 is Mickey Mouse's  fiftieth anniversary!) One of  the cartoons, I am told, was  made in 1952. My informant  didn't get the date for the  other, but it is likely that the  two were contemporaneous,  both made just as television  was beginning to make its  massive inroads into cinema  audiences. Never again would  such expensive cartoon shorts  be made for the cinema.  Leaving behind the declining  cinema, the Disney Studios  turned to the emerging  medium and untold millions.  I missed the cartoons  because there were people  who did not arrive in time to  get their tickets and membership cards and to bc seated  when the films began at 9:00  p.m. Perhaps we wil| have  more early cartoons, i Short  features, cartoons or trailers  will not always precede the  Film Society's main features  which would then themselves  commence at 9:00 p.m.  Next week, however, the  National Film Board's Oscar  winning animated short,  Thc   Sand   Castle,   will   bc  charm thc most calloused  viwer".  The review which follows  for this week's long feature  is condensed and reprinted  with permission from Monthly  Film Bulletin, Copyright,  The British Film Institute,  1974 (Joseph Rosenbaum):  Even before the title  sequence starts, over the  familiar Columbia Pictures  log, California Split has already begun to chatter. A  steady rush of talk-telegraphed, overheard, sometimes barely audible ��� spills  into the opening scenes like  a scatter of loose change from  a slot machine, meeting and  eluding our grasp in imitation  of a strictly chance operation. Much of fragmentation  and discontinuity virtually  atomised in the broken  encounters of isolated cranks  in The Long Goodbye persist  in California Split: even if  the sense of a common  bond between the gamblers  is practically all that keeps the  putative narrative going, it is  ostensibly determined and  then severed by the arbitrary  whims of chance, and continually intenvoven with the  jabbering world of compulsive  night people around them.  For the first time in Altman,  there is no moral judgement  of the behaviour occurring  within this absurdist framework: the respective introverted and extroverted styles  of George Segal and Elliott  Gould are presented in their  own terms, as they play  against one another, and  interpretations are left to  the viewer's discretion.  A similar contrast is afforded by the respective 'hard'  and 'soft' styles of Ann  Prentiss and Gwen Welles,  each as remarkable as the  other. After the more sim-  ops!

The twist, a dance of the past,  was hard on the knees. So  maybe? Usually exercise is  good for the joints, surely the  belly. Check before you start.  More power to you.  Dear Ann,  When you happen to sec a  male adult showing a lot of  attention to a child that isn't  his, arc you suspicious or  wrong to wonder what his  motives are? The parents  seem oblivious to the danger.  Is it my business to say anything to them? Aware  Dear Aware,  _You arc treading on nebul  ous ground. There are so  many people that jusl love  children, have none of their  own, so lavish attention on  their friends' children. On  thc other hand, girls arc subject to unwelcome sexual  attentions from fathers and  step-fathers. They seem helpless; the mothers usually  won't believe them, for reasons best known to themselves. For instance, the mother has economic reasons���  she docs not want to leave her  husband, or she finds sex  unpleasant, and doesn't  care where hc goes. If some  child conies to you with a story  like this, and has gone to her  mother with no results, then  you might report it. Thc  child can bc removed from the  home. Male domination and  subservient women have lent  this practice a dark place to  grow.  Dear Ann.  We are middle-aged; mod  est circumstances. Wc arc  comfortable, have friends, and  I thought we were happy.  Lately I've been wondering.  My husband is thinking of getting a hairpiece. He has started buying more dashing  clothes. He has been letting  the hair grow long and brushing it over his bald spot. That  apparently has its drawbacks  for he's talking about a hairpiece. What is happening?  Wondering  Dear Wondering,  Thc male is subject to thc  climacteric also. Hc finds  himself changing visually, and  just as his female counterpart,  fights against thc onslaught of  age. Combing hair from one  side to the other seems to  comfort thc person. High  wind renders his efforts useless and ludicrous. If seems  better to me to cut it short and  turn on thc personality. I  would not worry about his  actions, though a bit expensive.  Pages from a Life-log  Continued from page four  use the cove below his farm  as a drop-off point for contraband goods.

It's not that many years  since I was a cub myself, but  even I can remember when  you used to be able to wander  from berry patch to berry  patch, scratch your signature  on trees and generally laze  around in thc sunshine without being disturbed by  noisy yellow beasts dragging  the forests off to thc sea.  Why some of the older bears  tell stories told by their  grandparents, about when  these human animals used to  against humans as long as  Ihcy don't bother me. but to  tell the truth, it's getting  pretty hard to like them.  Over the past few years  I've been moving further  into the bush, bul they seem  to have the same idea.  One thing I've found out  is that if you let thc humans  see you from a long way off.  and don't surprise them,  they'll usually go off and  leave you alone. I hear that  they arc just as scared of  us as we are of them.  The biggest mistake you  can make with humans, is  to gct between a mother and  her cubs. Avoid this at all  costs. The mother will run  off to her den and come  back with humans with big  sticks and dogs and they  keep chasing you even after  thc cubs have been rescued.  If this ever happens don't  go back to thc same area.  There arc a few advantages to humans. Outside each of their villages  they store lots of food which  they don't seem lo want.  Every so often a big yellow  machine comes along and  covers it up, but if you get  there fast enough it's there  for the taking.  A word of warning about  this though. At most times it's  safe to go there and eat, but  don't    gct    too    confident;  walk on their own feet, and  were   almost   easy   to   live every  so often  one  of our  with. friends suddenly dies, usually  It   seems   that   this   year after a loud bang.

While  I  was  down  Personally I've got nothing there I had a visit with Mel  .lager. In the few minutes  that wc talked, we saw  mergansers, pintails, a kingfisher, coots, herons, mallards and grebes. The latter  were already changing into  their winter plumage.  A couple of seals have been  seen fishing off Gower  Point. This was from a lady  who had just moved up here  and she was quite excited  about it. Great!  A little anecdote from Bob  McKcnzie at the golf course.  It seems that up until a week  or two ago, a bird about  robin size with a greenish  body and brown wings has  been a companion of the golfers. It followed them around,  sometimes perching on the  golf carts. While the people  walked through the grass  they disturbed tlies and that's  what it was waiting for.  Down it would hop, and supper was on the table. He also  mentioned that swallows will  often follow after thc golfers  for the same reason.  That's all.

Area recreation plans outlined  GIBSONS AND  DISTRICT CHAMBER  OF COMMERCE  A General Meeting, Gibsons Legion Hall,  Wednesday, October 11,1978,8:00 p.m.  Editor:  We are really directing the  following to the attention of  thc voting public as well as the  press. It is our attempt to  make sure that the philosophy  and concept of regional recreation be clearly understood by  the voters.  On November 18 the voters  will have the specifics of the  Sunshine Coast Regional District Recreation program  placed before them for their  decision as to whether or not  the program should be proceed.  The package is the culmination of three years of work and  consultations by thc Committee.  The Regional Board's instruction to the Committee  was to ascertain what was  wanted, where it was wanted,  who would it serve, how much  it would cost, and how to fund  the package. Very early in the  game we recognized the universality of RECREATION,  like the rain it is no respector  of political boundaries.  We strove to ensure that a  maximum variety of recreation  was made available to a maximum number of users. The  geographical locations were  as central to the most users  wherever possible.  Having established those  priorities we addressed ourselves to the Board's requirement for financial responsibility on our part. We asked ourselves, "What can we afford?" bearing in mind that  the Committee was all taxpayers, even as you the reader.  Our research showed that  many Regional Districts face  costs on thc order of six mills  for recreation. We felt that  this was too high and set our  sights on two mills,  unani-  The first in a series of MB Reports.  w  ete MacMillan Bloedel  & we'd like to talk to you  Over the next six weeks, we'll  be publishing a series of seven  bulletins like this. They'll tell  you a lot about MacMillan  Bloedel. If you read them, you  will learn in some detail what  our company is up to. Where  we're "coming from." Where we  plan to go. And how we feel  about the future of British  Columbia and our place in this  province.  Here today. Here to stay.  There's one point we'd like to  make in this first report.  MacMillan Bloedel was born in  B.C. and we're deeply committed to this province. That's  partly pride���but it's also good  business sense. While we've  grown to become an international company, we're still a  forest products company. And  B.C. is where the forests are.  We think you're aware that a  company like MB can only  operate in this province with  your say-so. The people of  British Columbia own 80% of  the forest lands we manage. So  we're not the landlords, you  tire. We're the tenants.  A time of change,  for HC. & MB.  Nobody has to tell you that the  economy has been through a  period of critical change. And,  as you may be aware, so has our  company. In the following reports, we'll try to tell you what  these changes could mean to us���  and perhaps to you.  An $800 million vote  of confidence.  Next year, we expect to spend  about $800 million right here.  That's for wages for 16,000  employees, benefits, supplies  and services, heat, hydro and  the like. Our everyday costs of  staying in business. (We'll be  spending an additional amount  for new equipment and improvements. More about that in the  next report.) What does $800  million mean to the economy?  It puts into circulation something like $316 for each person  ���each man, woman and child  in B.C. We're confident it will  be a sound investment.  What to look for in  upcoming reports.  We'll do our level best to give  you an in-depth look at what  MB is all about. What plans do  we have for investing in new  equipment? How do we plan to  compete in today's tough world  markets? What are we doing  about productivity? What does  our tree planting program mean  to the future, and why is science  an important >art of growing  better forests? ,Te'll also tell  you some of the vitar things we  do in the com "."tities where  we live.  We'd like to hear from you.  In these reports, we'll be talking about us. But what about  you? If you have any ideas or  reactions concerning these topics,  we'd be very interested in hearing from you. Just write to this  address and we'll be in touch:  MB REPORTS,  1075 West Georgia  Street, Vancouver, B.C. V6E 3R9  lSL\  mouslv. We further resolved  to finance our package on a  definite term and as short as  we could manage. The referendum stipulates twelve years  for the complete payout for  principal and interest, and  that's short.  The building and thc funding programs would be quite  different were it not for the  large tax base represented by  thc Mill at Port Mellon.  The District has two other  principal areas of high assessment per capita, those arc thc  Commercial and industrial  areas in thc two Villages.  The balance of thc region is  dependent on residential assessments with their 15% levy  as compared to 20% and 25%  levies in the non-resident properties. We arc unalterably  opposed to parocialism and  hope to see that thc returns  from the Mill as well as the  commercial and industrial  levies are spread over the entire region. Only in this way  can the costs of thc major  proposals in thc package bc  born. The following is a  breakdown ot the amount  required to complete the  building program. $92,900 for  twelve years will pay off the  principal and interest; $78,350  has been budgeted per year  to assist in thc cost of operating and maintenance of all  the projects on thc list. Total  $171,250. Revenue from two  mills in !978cqlials 173.000.  leaving a sniall surplus of  $1750 per year.  The building program will  proceed (voters willing) as  per the following priority  standings. The stands were  arrived at by trial and agreed  to as to method of trial by both  the Board and the Committee.  PROJECT  CAPITAL    OPERATING  COSTS  DEFICIT  Arts Center  $   -  $    1.000  Roberts Creek Hall  225,000  5.000  Pender Harbour Pool  275,000  25,000  Redrooffs Playing Field  20,000  1.000  Arena Extension  200,000  3,000  Libraries  ���  5,000  Equestrian Center  1,000  ���  Motorcycle Site  500  ���  Gibsons Pool  80,000  38.000  Sechelt Marsh and Selma Park  1,000  350  Bicycle/Skateboard Track  2,500  ���  Hopkins Landing Park  70,000  $875,000  $78,350  The Board will have to find  expenses first and Capital  costs second tailored to fit  within the total yearly budget  of $173,000 per year. It follows that thc Board will be  required to proceed one project at a time until they are all  completed, or until the yearly  budget is exhausted.  You should also know that  the Board may not transfer  funds or costs from one function to another under any circumstances. For example,  a surplus in one account such  as water may not be spent on  garbage, etc. This is what is  known as zero budgeting,  which controls surplus levies  being carried over, or any  unnecessary levies and/or  any other kind of fancy bookkeeping. All increases in  capital cost must come only  from   natural     growth   for  twelve years or a second referendum must be taken.  Responsibility for prudent and frugal management  will rest with local management from within the community who will be encouraged to form non-profit societies. They will be required to  produce yearly operating budgets that can pass thc scrutiny  of the Regional Board. Thc  societies will bc open to the  general public, as are all the  facilities.  The answers to more detailed questions will be dealt  with at public meetings that  will be held throughout the  peninsula.  Youe attendance is earnestly solicited by both the Regional District Board and  this Committee.

Licences for these television stations, as well as for television  cable companies, become due  for renewal every lour years,  and the various applications  for renewal together with  any interventions are heard by  Ihe Canadian Radio and Television Commission which is  the government's regulating  agency for transmission of  radio and television signals.  Thc Commission's hearings  arc a sort of public forum  where any interested person  or group can make representations.  The Coast News then contacted both Dave Hcllem and  Maryanne West (who is intervening in connection with CBC  radio) with regard to interventions which are to be presented to the Coin mission, and  what is being sought is the  activation of CBC's television  transmitter in Victoria,  CBUVT, for transmission of  CBC programming on Channel 10. The activation of this  very recently completed  facility has been halted by  the   cut-backs    in    govern  ment spending. Ils only costs.  however, would be the power  needed to run it together with  verv sniall maintenance costs.  This transmitter would make  CBC programmes available in  Pender Harbour and in other  areas which are not now able  to obtain them. In order to activate Channel 10. n shuffle of  channels in the Vancouver  area would bc needed, and  this would result in Channel 5.  KING, being transferred to a  mid-band frequency. A special converter, costing between  twenty-five and forty dollars is  needed to receive mid-band  channels. The hearing with  regard to CHEK (Channel 6)  and CBUVT is scheduled for  October 24 at the Four Seasons Hotel in Vancouver.  A horse lament  Sechell   Urbanization   Detrimental    to    Horse    Liners:  Homer Glass pleaded  guilty to Ihree charges of  allowing a stallion over one  year old to run ' at large.  Crown Counsel stated Ihat  Mr. Glass' fencing was apparently inadequate, and that  a garden hail been damaged  as a result of one of the  incidents. Mr. Glass told  thc court that the stallion  had first broken loose when a  couple of colts had been  introduced   lo   ils  enclosure  because it was nol used to  the colts, and that on another  occasion, lhc stallion had  escaped when he was feeding  his animals. He also told the  .court that lie had paid damages for the damage to the  garden and impounding  charges. People had been  coming into the fields and  provoking the horses, he said,  and he added that the difficulties of urbanization were  forcing him to dispose of  the horses. He was lined  $50 on each of the three  counts.  A John Robbins Workshop  is being co-ordinated through  Continuing Education and  S.C.Fitness and Recreation  Services.

New service  Wilson Creek Community  Centre is adding another  service for parents and kids.  A daily after-school programme for 6���12 year-olds  will begin early in October  ai the Community Hall.  What's an After School  Programme? It's an Out of  School Care Programme of  activities both indoors and  out in a safe, supervised and  friendly atmosphere.  The successful previous  Summer Fun programmes will  provide ;i model to follow.  There will be games, sports,  hikes, field trips, films, arts  and crafts under group  leaders. The Community  II,ill houses a library and  reading coiner for story-  limes; the kitchen facilities  will be used to prepare hot  snacks (granola cookies ���  mini num).  The kids in ihe programme  will also have access to other  community facilities and  events.   They   can   use   Ihe  Community Resource meet  The Sunshine Coast Community Resource Society held  a public meeting in Sechelt  School Tuesday, September  2b. Guest speaker was Mr.  Fred Taylor, Regional Supervisor of the Ministry of Human  Resources, Powell River. Mr.  Taylor spoke on policies of the  Ministry as they relate to local  community workshop or join  in gymnastics twice (?) a  week at the school.  The programme provides  a healthy environment for  6���12 year-olds, 2:30���6:30  p.m. every day. The fee is  $50 per kid per month (full  lime), and subsidies are  available through the local  Human Resources Office.  There is a limit of twenty  in this programme and spaces  arc tilling up. Parents can gel  information or register their  kids by calling the Wilson  Creek Communitv Office at:  885-5422  services. He expressed the  Ministry's belief that community societies, such as this,  arc generally more efficient  in the delivery of many services than an administrative  board located many  away.  The Society was pleased to  learn that the Ministry of  Health through its Long term  Care has authorized a six  month demonstration program for an Adult Day Care  cenlre, details soon to be announced. Louise Hume, who  has worked with senior citizens for a long time, originated the drive for the facility  and will see thai it serves  its purpose to full extent.  Mr. Taylor reviewed the  projects administered by the  Society, namely Homemakers,  Mini-Bus, Senior Services.  Volunteer Bureau and Special  Services to children. The  Homemakers plan is now serv  ing one hundred and thirty  two clients through a staff of  fifty-three. If it were not for  this care in the home many of  the clients would have to be in  hospital or nursing homes at a  miles cost considerably greater than  the amounts now provided.  in a three month period thc  Mini-Bus carried 1,933 people  and covered 9,500 miles.    It  will be easily understood that,  with only one vehicle and  driver, it is just not possible to  satisfy all demands for Mini-  Bus service, but steps are  being taken to try to improve  the capability of the service  to meet the requirements of all  residents of the Sunshine  Coast who are entitled to the  service. Watch for developments.  Thc Volunteer Bureau  worked with the publicity director by holding a slide show  and poster exhibit in Sechelt  and Gibsons malls to make thc  public aware of the presence  and services provided by thc  Resource Society. These activities will be extended.  Mr. Taylor and members  spent some time in reviewing  the Special Services to Children. The Society administers  the programme of Alternate  Education with centres in Gibsons and Pender Harbour.  Child care workers deal with  children to try to keep them in  their own homes even though  difficulties exist there.

Lockstead report  Monday, September II,,  IM7K: Wlio is to blame for the  prescnl crisis in unemployment?  Let's start with a bit of  background, courtesy of the  Federal Department of Manpower and Immigration.  In :, publication of January  IT" entitled Labour Market  Outlook 1978 7'). B.C.'s  economic future was assessed.  I he prediction was a*, follows:  "Al present, coal mining  is the only major industry  in the province undergoing  significant growth and ils  luiilier development is con-  aidcrcd vital to the economic  prosperity of the region.  I vpectations are ihat future  world energy needs will make  large scale mining developments in the province inevitable...Il is probable that the  construction industry will  I" uelil as' early as 1978 as  the preparation of the necessary infrastructure gets under  way."

In 1975 ihere were twenly-  Iniir mines iu operation. Ill  1474 there were only twenty-  one and In the end of this  war. the B.('. Mining Associ  ation  predicts  there  will  be  only eighteen.  As for the predicted infrastructure construction work  recent news reports point  to. just thc opposite. No  Stronger an indictment could  have been made against thc  bungling of Mr. Phillips  lhan Ihe September 8. '1978  story in lhc Vancouver Sun  which was headlined "Construction jobless nite soars in  disaster", The text of the  story detailed Ihe current  thirty percent unemployed  rate iu the construction industry. Industry spokesmen  termed 1978 the worst year  foi construction in lhc last  decade. ' What is worse,  economic forecasts show no  improvement for the industry  in ihe coming year wilh easily  up to hall the construction  workers of B.C. without  jobs. Robert Urquhart, president of Commonwealth Construction, one of the largest  such outfits in B.C.. said  "People arc going lo go  broke. Il is a disaster.

Crown Submits Contradictory  Evidence: Two pieces of evidence, one a conversation  between Larry Paul, a treaty  Indian, and Conservation  Officer James Stephen on  February 26 when the Officer  stopped Mr. Paul and a male  companion; and the other a  statement which Mr. Stephen  eventually elicited from  Mr. Paul as a result of a visit  on March 7 to the Paul residence, were submitted by  Crown Counsel Mr. I.A.Brand  in "voir dire" proceedings.  "Voir dire" is a sort of trial  within a trial, the purpose of  which is to establish whether  or not statements were made  voluntarily. If threats or  inducements in the obtaining  of the statements can bc  established, the evidence  would be dismissed.  Under examination by  Crown Counsel, the Conservation Officer related the  incident. He told the Court  that he was on his regular  patrol to Chapman Creek  near Sechelt when he saw  two young men carrying  .22 rifles which he subsequently found to be loaded. The  Officer was not in uniform,  but he identified himself and  questioned Mr. Paul. He told  the court that Mr. Paul's  rifle and ammunition were  seized, and he said that the  ammunition had been mutilated by having the lead  criss-crossed, presumably  with a knife. Asked how this  would effect the projectile,  Mr. Stephen said that the  bullet would open up and  fragment upon impact,  and he agreed that this was  what is termed a "dum  dum" bullet. He acknowledged that there was an  Indian Reserve nearby and  that it encompassed part of  the B.C. Hydro right-of-way.  There is no sign post, but he  thought it likely that he had  apprehended the two young  men inside the Reserve.  The Officer asked Mr.  Paul, "What are you doing  with that gun?" Mr. Paul  answered, "Looking for  deer." When asked where  he was going, the Officer  testified that Mr. Paul had  indicated an easterly direction. "Doyou have a permit?"  the Officer asked. The accused  expressed surprise over this  question, Mr. Stephen testified, and responded, "We  don't need a permit."  "You're a few months late  Larry," the Conservation  Officer responded at which  Mr. Paul Shrugged. At one  point, the Officer testified,  Mr. Paul said that they were  just going to shoot targets.  "But Larry," the Officer  said, "you just told me that  you were looking for deer."  Mr. Paul's response to this,  the Officer testified, was'  another shrug.  On March 7, the Officer  testified, he called on Mr.  Paul at his residence where  he found the accused unresponsive and not particularly co-operative. Mr. Paul,  he testified, was very reluctant to give anything in  writing. The Officer said that  Mr. Paul had responded  "paper targets" when asked  upon this occasion what hc  was   going   to   shoot.  He then  made and signed a statement:  "We went for target practice and a walk."  Mr. Paul was then cross-  examined by Defense Counsel  David Leslie acting for Larry  Paul. Mr. Paul testified that  he had been on the Indian  Reserve at the time.  In summing up, Crown  Counsel contended that the  intention to hunt was established, and he cited Supreme  Court cases to support his  argument that Indians are  not excused from provincial  legislation. He said that there  are exemptions in that treaty  indians are not required to  purchase tags as are non-  Indian hunters, but they are  still subject to regulations and  should have obtained a permit  to hunt out of season.  Defense Counsel Leslie  argued that the intention to  hunt had not been established  and that even if it had, the  Wildlife Act would not apply  to an Indian hunting on  Indian reserve.  Judge Johnson noted that  the Crown's case was based  on "voir dire" evidence which  was contradictory in that it  stated, on the one hand,  "We're looking for deer,"  and on the other that the  young men were only out to  shoot at targets. The Crown  could, he said, have put in  only the evidence of February  26, but the Court was bound  by all statements which left  the matter in confusion  raising doubt as to what Mr.  Paul's statement was.  The Judge could not find  that Mr. Paul was out hunting.  There was no need for him to  decide on the application of  the Wildlife Act. He dismissed  the charge and ordered the  confiscated rifle returned to  its owner.  The Sunshine I(g0jy  Second Front Page  Local Socreds Annual Meeting  September      19,       1978:  The Mackenzie Constituency  of the British Columbia  Social Credit Party held its  Annual Meeting in Madeira  Park on Sunday. September 17.  Chairman of the meeting  was Mr. Dan Hanuse, Senior,  Director for Region One which  includes Vancouver Island  and the Sunshine Coast.  Thc keynote speaker was  Mr. Les Keen, President of  thc British Columbia Social  Credit Party who spoke of the  progress the Party is making  in   gaining   new   members,  which are now at the highest  level in the history of the  Party. He discussed the progress made by Premier  W.H.Bennett in instigating  thc policies he set out to  accomplish when he was  elected. He stressed, however, that much was left to  be dolie and thc Government  was actively engaged in completing its programme.  Duncan A.Sim of Madeira  Park was elected President of  thc Constituency for a two-  year term. John K. Sorko of  Gibsons was elected Vice  President,   also   for  a   two-  Soccer introduction  year term. Gerry Gray of  Powell River, jane Sorko  of Gibsons and Peter Prescesky of Madeira Park were  elected Directors for a two-  year term.  Duncan Sim, the newly  elected President stated that  the new Executive would bc  faced very shortly with  an election and that everything must be done to prepare  thc Mackenzie Constituency  to elect ;i Social Credit MLA  in order that some of thc  major problems of thc Constituency may receive thc  attention of thc Government.  A gentle reminder that the flashing red lights on school buses require all  motorists to stop.  Benefit of doubt  Doubt Resolved In Favour of  Accused:  David Randall Axon  appeared in court without  counsel to contest a charge  of crossing over a solid  double line in his vehicle.  Giving evidence for the  Crown, Constable Dolhan  told the court that he had  observed the accused's  vehicle through the rear view  mirror of his marked police  vehicle, and that three-  quarters of it had crossed over  the solid line. He said that  there had been no vehicles  between the police car and  the  accused's  vehicle.   Mr.  Police news of the week  Since the attack made on a  goat by a bear, the R.C.M.P.  have been beseiged by phone  calls. The conservation officer,  Jamie Stephens, has captured  a bear which fits the general  description of the one in the-  goat incident, and is also  trapping in potential trouble  spots.  GIBSONS AREA:  September 25: A five gallon  Mercury gas tank and frame  valued at $125 were stolen  from a boat moored at Hopkins Landing. A break in and  theft occurred at Gambier  Harbour. It is unknown to  date what is missing. Between  $200 and $300 in damage  occurred at Port Mellon.  Vandals poured a flammable  material, Siloo, on a sign and  set it alight. A business in  lower  Gibsons  was  broken  into. Entry was gained  through the rear door. The  owner of the business sur-'  prised the thief and gave  chase, but was unable to  catch him.  SECHELT TO EARLS COVE:  September 23: Brian's Auto  Body was broken into in the  early morning. Initially the  police reported the premises  were insecure. When the  owner arrived, he apprehended a youth in the building.  Charges of break and enter  will be laid.  September 24: Two crab  traps, valued at $50 were  stolen at Storm Bay. Thc  traps had the name Ianno on  the bottom.  September 25: Two mag  wheels and tires were stolen  from a vehicle at the Pender  Harbour      Chevron.      Thc  vehicle had been towed to  the garage after being  involved in an accident.  September 27: Willful damage  was reported at the Chatelech  High School. A chain post  was driven over, damage is  estimated at $50. Police request information on the incident. A 1977, four door  Subaru, licence number  XGE 356 was stolen from a  residence on Field Road in  Roberts Creek. The vehicle  is white with a blue top. At  the time of the police report,  it had not been recovered.  Axon contended that there  were two campers between  his vehicle and the police  car, and that his had not  crossed the solid line.  Judge Johnson said that  he had no reason to disbelieve the police officer,  but that he had heard opposite  statements and was inclined  to believe both. Perhaps  there had been a mistake,  he thought, or there might be  some other explanation.. He  couldn't decide this, he  said, and so the doubt was  resolved in favour of the  accused, and the charge dismissed.  A break in and theft at the  Beaver Lake Motel was  reported. During the previous  week a Turquoise Hammond  bed-chesterfield was taken.  September 28: A nineteen  year old youth was taken into  custody and assault charges  are pending after a disturbance, which was reported by a  citizen. Thc scuffle was  between a man and a woman.  It began outside the Bank of  Montreal. The police apprehended thc youth in the Trail  Bay parking lot. The woman  suffered a swollen eye.

Coast Strokers  Bt Dennis Gra)  I noticed a photograph in  iln.' Sun Leisure Section of a  motorcycle and rider involved  in an Enduro, The photo  typifies the spirit of competition: the ruler is obviously  screaming out a savage howl  .is he charges out of a mud  hole, li is like .1 glimpse into  ihe past ��� Man's recession  irom the computer age to the  savage, the warrior charging  into battle, a bloodless war  (hopefully) in which Man  recalls his animal weapons  in a total effort to win. The  yell, partly a battle cry, to  urge himself on and terrify  thc enemy, and partly an  exclamation of joy at the freedom of competition, thc freedom of war, the paradoxical  charge Into the battle against  no enemy.  ""wan**  s>  Or am I reading something  into the picture that is not  there? Perhaps he is just  screaming because he ran  over his own foot. Maybe he  came down on the gas tank in  that mud hole or maybe he is  tired of riding and is trying to  hail a cab.  If he is like me he is swearing. He has saved up all the  mads, the frustrations and the  pain for days or weeks, then  releases them all together in  a joyous blue streak while  hc is riding. A purge of the  soul as Exlax is a purge to  thc body.  I was not always that way;  in fact I was raised in an  entirely different environment. My father was a happy,  hard-working man who seldom raised his voice in anger  and almost never swore except  for the rare 'Hell' and a scattering of 'Damns'. This must  have taken super human  strength in view of his undesirable chore of raising me,  but it seemed like the easiest  of my father's virtues to  emulate and considering my  un-polished nature, cuss  words passed through my  lips with respectable infre-  quency. It was a situation  that may well have seen me  bleed to death from biting  off my own tongue if I had  not been influenced by someone whose views on profanity  were easier for me to live  by.  This man in most respects  could be considered a refined  gentleman. He was distinguished looking, spoke slowly  and quietly, was well-read and  to give further credence to  this description, he had a  British accent.  The one exception, in glaring contradiction to his polished image, was his frequent  use of profanity. His justification for reaching into that  soiled sack of shocking  phrases was that it was an  important part of thc English  language. Used, if not recorded, by all of history's  greatest men. That was good  enough for me, however 1  did compromise with my  upbringing and try to do most  of my swearing when people  cannot hear, i.e. while riding  a motorcycle.  I swear at ��� the weather,  the track, the spectators, other  riders, but mostly at myself.  One day I swore at a man  who caused me to fall by  watering the track. I suggested with his unique appearance he should stick to defecating. Unfortunately since  my bike had stopped running  he heard me and turned the  hose on me. But usually it  works when all else fails,  I swear!

Saturday, Hackett Park,  2:00 p.m. RENEGADES VS  LYNN   VALLEY   FALCONS:  A must win for both thc  Renegades and the Falcons  brought thc fans an exciting  game last Saturday as both  learns were tied for second  place of their division. The  game had the fans on edge  throughout the game. It was  the Renegades' best game  so far this season.  Il is said that the Lynn  Valley Falcons had been  forewarned by West Van  Royals that thc Renegades  carried a fast ball with snappy  passes. The Falcons came  into (he game well prepared  for thc Renegades' fast  plays and they gave thc Renegades a tough go in a game  which ended in a scoreless  tie.  First half was rough, both  teams feeling each other's  strengths and weaknesses  and both receiving several  warnings from the ref who  kept a tight watch over the  game. Number 2 player of the  Falcons was thrown off the  field for unsportsmanlike  conduct toward the end of thc  first half.  Second half followed the  same fast moving pace as th"e  first. The Falcons struck to  defensive playing to deal with  the Renegades' one man  advantage.  At this point one fails to  understand why with such an  advantage the Renegades  could not manage to score at  least one goal out of all  their opportunities to do so.  a~V..Hit   onpc   In   thp    Fstrnnc  for withstanding the pressure  applied   by   the   Renegades  although they were aiming  mainly toward keeping the  game scoreless.  There were a couple of  mad scrambles in front of  thc Falcons' net which kept  the fans on tenterhooks  leaving them afterwards  puzzled as to why no goals  were scored. An exciting  game, filled with constant  action and great plays from  both sides.  Wanderers  Wanderers Jr. met Mc���  Sweeney Border Brokers  at Langdale Field. A good  game well played by everyone with the two counting  goals made by Corric Motti-  shaw and Larry Linckcr assisted by Robbie Jonas. The final  score was 2���1 in favour of  Wanderers Jr.  Their first game was September 24, 1978 at Squamish  with a final score of 4���1  in favour of Wanderers Jr.  against Squamish Sounders.  This year alternating in  goal are Tom Sleep and  Bryan Armstrong. We're  hoping for a successful season  again this year.  Raiders  By Mabel and Buds  'm  In the game played at  12:00noon Sunday, October 1,  on the High School Field, the  score was 4���3 Redskins.  For the most part the game  progressed clearly on both  sides, with frequent good  individual efforts.  Goals scored for Redskins:  Adrian Dixon; Tim Joe;  Sharkey Louie; Ricky August.  Goals scored for Raiders:  Bob Crosby; Mike Plourde;  Bill Sneddon.  Special thanks to Referee,  Bradley Joe.  High winds made for an exciting sailing race last  Sunday off Paisley Island last Sunday. Ten boats  entered the open-handicap event. First place went  to Barry Quarry in a tri-maran, Dave Smethurst  was second in a mono-hull, Roger Douglas'  brought his boat in in third place.  Strikes and spares MM  by Bud Mulcaster  Eleven-year-old Richard  Connor was the star of thc  lanes last Saturday. Bowling  in the Y.B.C. Junior League,  Richard put six strikes, a  spare and a strike together for  a dandy 345 single. Not bad  for a first-year junior.  In the Classic League, Carol  Skytte rolled a 331 single and  1104 for four. Dianne Fitchcll  had a nice 350 single and a  four-game total of 1014. Holding up the men was yours truly  with a 314 game.  Freeman Reynolds is having  a rough start this year, but  finally managed a 357 single  in the Ball and Chain League.  Carole Skytte is off to a good  start, as she rolled a 294 single  and 809 for three in the Wednesday Afternoon League. For  a girl who doesn't like bowling, she sure does well!

A day's work  The above photos show the  progress to date and indicate  the speed and efficiency with  which thc fireproof metal  stud exterior wall assembly  was erected at the St. Mary's  Hospital extension.  Whitehall Contractors Ltd.,  who pioneered this metal  stud construction technique  and who used this form of  construction on the original  building in 1963 as well as  on thc top floor addition in  1972, is the only local subcontractor on the present  $2m addition.  This type of construction  is particularly adapted to  commercial buildings such as  shopping centres and hotels  because of its fire resistant  qualities and cost advantages.  This innovative construction technique is considerably  less costly than other non-  combustible types of construction due to its light weight  and speed of erection.  Whitehall is moving its  head office to the New Cameo  Industrial Park which borders  the Gibsons-Sechelt airport at  Wilson Creek.  Cameo Industries LTd.  Assistant Manager Philip  Best welcomes Whitehall's  move to the Cameo Industrial  Park and seeks their move as  the beginning of a core for  the Peninsula Construction  Industry.
