 legislative library  parliaments buildings  victoria, b.c.   80.1  The Sunshine  Published at Gibsons, B.C.  15$ per copy on news stands  Second Class Mall Registration No. 4702  Serving the Sunshine Coast since 1945  Delivered to every address on the Coast.  Voters decisive and positive on election day  Hive you ever tried to unload a truck of empty beer bottles when the truck is on its side and most of the beer bottles are  broken? This was the unfortunate lot of Rueben Stroshein after his truck hit a patch of black Ice early on Thursday  morning while taking the corner by the Peninsula Hotel.  Nicholson rebuffs Lee's charges  Obviously indignant, Chairman Ed Nicholson of the  Regional Board described two  written depositions produced  by Director Charles Lee at the  Regional Board meeting held  on November 15, as a 'pile of  UUef crap'. The depositions  alleged that threats and intimidation had taken place in  Nicholson's Area involving  Nicholson and'the Regional  Planner.  Lee made two motions to the  Regional. Board on the matter  of Cooper's Green which has  been exercising him of jate. The  first was that the Regional  Board should make no further  approaches to the Coopers  with a view to purchasing their  property. Chairman Nicholson, who had relinquished the  chair to Director Harry Almond for the occasion, seconded the motion.  A further motion by Lee that  'The Board will not permit its  servants to interfere with the  Coopers' affairs outside their  nrahdate' was rejected by the  Regional Board after strong  criticisms by the Directors.  Director Joe Harrison said  that Lee's motion imputed  nasty motives to staff which  imputations were not warranted. "It is a political ploy on  Lee's part," charged Harrison,  "The legal opinion quoted by  Lee was sought by the Board  before we did anything improper, not after the fact of  impropriety."  Directors Gibb and Almond  joined in the condemnation of  Lee's actions: "This comes  across u a vendetta against the  Board Chairman," said Gibb.  Almond deplored the fact  that the imputations had been  brought up in letters to local  papers.' "This Board has not  been harassing the Coopers; I  have not been harassing the  Coopers," said Almond. "I am  disgusted that a Director  should be able to get away with  this."  Chairman Nicholson, in  whose Area Coopers' Green is,  told the Regional Board that  what was involved was a local  neighbourhood issue which  should be settled within the  neighbourhood'.  Nicholson said that there  were two concerns still active in  the matter. One was that the  number of campers must  conform to the legal limit on  the area available. "Up to four  times the legal number have  been allowed in the past," said  Nicholson, "which endangers  the health of children swimming at the beach." Nicholson  said that the Regional Board  was pressing for the re-gazetting of a road across the green  which had been improperly re-  gazetted by the Provincial  Government. "It's a matter of  Please turn to page three  Test lake opened  for fishing  Lei (Logger) Lake, the small body of water above Halfmoon  Bay which is being examined by Simon Fraser University  scientists as ah experimental site for the testing of the chemical  Orthene, has been reopened to the public as a recreational sport;,  fishing area. *  This decision was made last week by Conservation Officer J.  Stephen. It was prompted by the fact that S.F.U. will not make an  official application for the testing of the chemical until they "have  more complete information to present to the Provincial Pesticide  Regulatory Agency". This could mean a delay of up to a year.  In a letter to the Gibsons Wildlife Club, Dr. G.H. Geen , an  aquatic ecologist from S.F.U. in charge of the project, refuted the  statement that the funding for the operation came from the  Chevron Chemical Company, stating that a grant had been  received from the National Science and Engineering Research  Council (NSERC) which is a Federal Government agency.  According to Geen's letter, the reason for the testing is to find if  Orthene can be used as an alternative to more toxic chemicals  presently in use. The application of Orthene in the two lakes���one  in Haney and Lei Lake���is so that an accurate comparison of the  effects can be tabulated, due to the similarity in the two bodies of  water. To date studies have been restricted to the laboratory.  Geen expressed his willingness to meet with members of the  Gibsons Wildlife Club to discuss the matter in detail. He noted  that, "We may not agree on all issues but hopefully we can  eliminate problems stemming from incomplete information".  A carbon copy of the letter was forwarded to Rafe Mair, the  Minister of the Environment.  To date, no answer to the letter from the Wildlife Club to Mair's  office requesting further information has been received. .  Voters throughout the Sunshine Coast were In a decisive and a  positive mood at the elections held on November 17. Incumbent  Mayors were overturned In both of the region's Municipalities  referenda, in Gibsons on the Marina project and in Areu B and C to  support the Sechelt Arena, both passed with comfortable margins.  lite Gibsons Marina vote was S05 In favour and 270 against. In  the support for Sechelt Arena referendum In Regional Areas B and  C, the affirmative vote tallied 50$ votes with the negatives polling  344.  In voting for the one Regional District seat being contested,  incumbent Director Charles Lee withstood a strong challenge from  Ed Nicholson in Area C. Lee polled 265 votes to Nicholson's 196.  Lee, who sought unsuccessfully for a seat on Sechelt Council at the  same time, told the Coast News, "The seat that I won was the one I  would have preferred to win. I am looking forward next year to good  strong representation from the two Villages."  Lee said that he had no intentions at the present time of seeking  the Chairmanship of the Regional Board.  In a garbage referendum held In Regional Areas B through F, 799  Regional voters voted to continue the weekly system of garbage  collection in force at the present time. 343 voters voted to go to one  collection every two weeks and IS independent souls said that no  garbage collection whatsoever was required.  A breakdown of the voting In the two Villages follows.  'Dark Horse' is the  winner in Sechelt  'Dark Horse' candidate  Mervyn J. Boucher was elected  Mayor of Sechelt in voting held  on November 17. Boucher  topped the polls with 188 votes  . to 127 votes for incumbent  Mayor Harold Nelson. It  marked the end of fourteen  . consecutive years of community service for .Mayor Nelson.  In the Sechelt aldermanic  races candidates Henry Hall  and Brian Stelck were elected  to fill the vacancies occasioned  ' by the retirement of Morgan  Tnompson and Frode Jorgensen. Hall and Stelck ended  Stelck. First time candidate  Michael Evans made a very  respectable showing with 148  votes. Regional Director Charles Lee trailed in Sechelt,  amassing only 114 votes.  Mayor elect Boucher des-  �� Goddard and Marina  and  winners in Gibsons  cribed himself as being the  most surprised man in Sechelt  but expressed confidence in the  Council that had been elected.  "We're going to have a pretty  good Council," said Boucher.  "We're going to get right down  to work. There's a lot to do."  Alderman elect Hall told the  Coast News that he was rather  pleased with the way that the  cards had fallen. "I think this  Council will work well together," said Hall.  Hall also paid tribute to the  work of Mayor Harold Nelson  defeated in his bid for reelection. "Harold Nelson has  been a devbtilT Mayori'said  Wall. "I'm sorts, to see him  defeated but perhaps it was  time for the change."  At the time of going to press  the Coast News had not been  able to contact Alderman elect  Brian Stelck for comment.  At St. Mary's  Staff morale  Lei Lake above Halfmoon Bay Is the proposed testing site of the chemical Orthene. The herbicide Is to be tested by  Simon Fraser University scientists.  The matter of staff morale at  St. Mary's Hospital was  brought before the Sunshine  Coast Regional Board on Thursday, November 15, by Director  Harry Almond who is the  Regional Board's representative  on the Hospital Board.  Almond reported that members of the Hospital Board were  of the opinion that the matter  had been settled but that other  information coming to him  indicated that the issue was by  no means a dead letter. "I have  been talking to patients who  approached me first," said.  Almond, "and to nurses who  naturally did not want their  names revealed and It would  seem that there is definitely  something underlying all this."  Director Almond said that  there was definitely a great  amount of discontent and dissatisfaction on the part of the  hospital staff. "We have been  accustomed to hearing that when  people have gone into St. Mary's  they have got the best of care and  concern. It has been a happy  hospital, but It is changing."  Almond said that it was apparent  that communication between the  administration and the hospital  staff was not adequate.  Almond's concerns were e-  choed by Bob McCartney of the  Hospital Employees Union. "We  in the H.E.U. are very concerned because we represent  over 50% of the staff," said  McCartney. "Morale is very  poor due to staff shortages and  also to a lack of responsiveness  on the part of the present  administration."  Like Almond, McCartney  pointed out that St. Mary's had  always been a place where there  were few malcontents in the  past.  At the Regional Board  meeting on November 15, Director Charles Lee suggested  that the matter should be  discussed in a closed meeting but  Director Gibb took Issue with  the suggestion and with the  recent Press Release released by  Gordon Hall, Chairman of the  Hospital Board. "Patient care  has never been an issue," said  Gibb. "What is at issue is the  question of staff morale." Gibb  said that the hospital represented the biggest single expenditure of the tax dollar on the  Sunshine Coast and charged  that it was being treated 'like a  private dub'.  Director David Hunter suggested that the matter should be  discussed with the Hospital  Board at the first opportunity.  by George Cooper  Mayor elect Lorraine Goddard told the Coast News after  the election, "I am so very  pleased to have won the  election and I am very grateful  to the people who voted for me.  I will do my level best to serve  the taxpayers without fear or  favour in the next two years. It  is going to be a busy term of  office, first in getting the  Marina built after we have  commitments from the two  senior governments, and then  in looking for means to encourage development in the  lower part of the Village. And,  of course, there are other  projects like recreation that will  get our attention too. I am very  happy to have the experienced  people on Council that we now  have, and I know we will make  a good, efficient team."  Mayor Goddard added that  she agreed with a statement by  aldermanic candidate Karkabe  made at the All Candidates'  meeting held November IS that  a problem exists in Lower  Gibsons and, since every  problem has a solution, we  have to persist in finding it.  As John Kavanagh of the  Cedar Plaza said in a lengthy  harangue at the All Candidates' meeting, "Lower Gibsons needs a new set of rules,  i.e. in zoning, such as reducing  CI site requirements to 15,000  8*. ft, Lower Gibsons needs a  system of land banking to  provide for parking needs.  Lower Gibsons needs a theme,  that of a fishing village perhaps, to give it a unique  atmosphere which will attract  visitors."  Goddard had responded that  parking was generally a responsibility of the developer or  the merchant but it is plain to  see that Lower Gibsons presents a unique problem as far as  parking is concerned and both  Council and merchants will  have to approach it with an  open mind and determination  to find a satisfactory solution.  The first to congratulate  Mrs. Goddard when the returning officer proclaimed her  elected, was the outgoing  Mayor, Lorne Blain.  In the counting of ballots for  the two year term for aldermen,  Labonte led the way throughout. The suspense in the count  focussed on the ballots for  Strom and Trainor. They edged  each other for the lead all the  way through the tally and only  in the last few ballots did  Trainor get his three vote lead.  Asked after the election if she  was considering an application  for a judicial recount, Strom  said she was going to think  about it, and at any rate, she  was going to run again another  time.  The outcome of the one year  term for alderman was never in  doubt. Metcalfe led all the way  from the start to a 2 to 1  victory.  The Marina vote was never  in doubt either and was almosi  2 to 1 in favour. Now the  Council has a clear voter  opinion on the matter to show  to the Federal Government and  to the Provincial. Fisheries has  already indicated that Gibsons  Marina will be in their budget  for 1980 and Gibsons will noii  have to wait and see if restricted  Federal spending will still allow  the funds needed for the:  breakwater and dredging. Oncf  this is forthcoming Gibsons  can continue in its application  for funds from Provincial  Government sources.  Alderman Larry Trainor,  who appears to have won reelection, told the Coast News  that he was especially pleased  that the vote on the Marina had  ben virtually 2 to 1 in favour. "I  am convinced that it is a  turning point for the Village,*  said Trainor.  Alderman Trainor expressed  satisfaction with tbe Council  that had been elected. 'Wi  going to be a very good  Council," said Trainor, "but I  am sorry to see Lorne (Mayor  Blain) go. He's done a very  good job in his. two years in  office." e  ',r  Postscripts  Of the fairly small number of  spoiled ballots���four in the  Mayor count, 17 in the one year  alderman term, and one in the  Marina���most were simply not  marked and dropped in the box  blank. A few ballots were not  turned in at ail causing some  consternation at the beginning  of the counts. During the day;  one voter, after looking over  the ballots, turned the lot back  unmarked and departed. An  elderly gentleman grumbled his  Way out of the poll about being  tired of his wife's telling him  how to vote. Many ballots in  the two year alderman election}  showed only one choice made  by the voters when the ballot  called for two choices. And two  regional district voters arrived.  at' ten minutes of closing time  at set to vote on the garbage  question and no one could tell  them where their poll was.  Returning Officer Copland, his  two clerks, and the Constable,  Fred Cotton, put in more than  IS hours on the job. Counting  more than 3,000 ballots in the  prescribed way took just over  three hours to do. But it was as  exciting as any game to watch.  immt{\\\XW  3  rafJfciT"  *-i**.  ���:**-*,*S*.W  _____W^         ''m\\W  H*fl B^^l   ^H'-fl  ���1 11   ��� ���  __Wm_______9%___\i_____\::m_____\ ���  _.-���    ���  ���j'"  tt*'-'��                                        I  ^-^  ���aS*  r ���������'*tSw  WmWi  *��ML2S.

Thc (nasi News congratulates all  successful candidates and wishes them well  in iheir future deliberations. We offer our  condolences and our gratitude for those  public-minded citizens who offered their  services but were defeated at the polls.  And, lastly, we would especially thank  those individuals who have made their  contribution on thc Stage of local  governmeni and now depart the scene for  the time being.  Mayors Harold Nelson and Lorne Blain  are in this category. Gentlemen, your  communities owe you a vote of thanks for  ihe time and effort spent on their behalf.  Leaving the stage also are Aldermen Jack  Marshall ol Gibsons and Morgan Thompson and Frode Jorgensen of Sechelt. You,  tOp, gentlemen deserve our thanks.  Apart from the candidates from office,  the voters were in a decisive mood on issues  Election notes  ���before them. The Gibsons Marina, the  support lor Sechelt Arena, and thc weekly  garbage pickup all received strong  affirmative votes which had the great  blessing of being clear cut.  Perhaps of the three it was the  affirmative decision registered by the  voters on the Gibsons Marina which was  the most momentous. Those who favour  the Marina project and who agree with  Alderman Larry Trainor that the referendum vote is a turning point for Ihe Village  have good cause for rejoicing.  It may be, however, that this is as good a  time as any to take note of the principal  fear of those whoopposed the Marina, that  is that the Marina will cause serious  pollution of Gibsons Harbour. Such a  thing would be to the benefit of no one and  it would perhaps go a considerable way  towards healing some of the scars that the  sternly contested referendum may have left  in the Village if those who have been the  proponents of the Marina would re-iterate  and consistently maintain a dedication  that the Marina should not be polluting. A  polluted Bay will serve none of us well.  Iniative applauded  :  :  .

Peterson  Musings  John Burnside  Slings & Arrows ��*  -���-���a----------   jp4  George Matthews *.  ***���  I enjoyed and empathized  completely with Dee Cee's  preamble last week about the  fashion in which a writer's  mind wants to wander along  " patgi uflsnspectjdT' *heif'tge  journey,1commenced.*I dortY  know,, jpy friend,' whether/^-  not it is an affliction that affects  all who take the figurative pen  in hand but I can assure you  that this particular ^corner of  the Coast News frequently  linds that what is in mind when  a column begins often endures  strange sea-changes along the  way.  For example, I've just been  turning over in nly mind the  thought of writing Something  on the subject of capital  punishment and while I was  reflecting, before even putting  ink on the paper, I found  myself reminiscing about a  particular house I occupied on  Marine Drive in Gibsons, a  three-legged electric frying pan,  a couple of visiting Irishmen,  two bottles of Bushmills Irish  Whisky, and a gifted man who  died tragically because of his  inability to stop drinking it.  The house on Marine Drive  was that deceptive three story  number on the beach side right  beside the Gibsons Athletic  Association hut by Armour's  Beach. It is probably necessary  al this point for me to make  mention of the fact that I have  lived a virtually nomadic life  during the quarter century that  I have lived in Canada. It  occurred to me not too long  ago that there are only two  houses I have lived in during  Ihat twenty-five years which I  inhabited lor more than one  year and one of those wasa tiny  12(1 sq. It. cabin that 1 shared in  Roberts Creek. The other was  the tcachcragc in Dawson City  which was 'home' for three  happy years in the North.  The rest is a bewildering  stream of half-remembered  landladies in my teens and  rented houses and apartments  during my alleged maturity.  For example, though it is now  ten years since I arrived on the  Sunshine Coast, I stopped  counting houses in 1975 when I  had lived in eleven different  ones in six years.  Like all nomads, I discovered that the amount of  property I possessed was  severely curtailed by the necessity of carting it about. There  are those who would say that I  carried my obsession to minimize my material possessions  to a Spartan-like excess. I  remember Les Forcek, thc  painter's comment when he  came across ex-Coast News  book reviewer John Faust-  mann struggling from that very  house in September 1973 with a  cardboard box containing most  of my'peJSdiial'betbhgingS.  forcek asked FitUstmann what  (ie was doing. "Helping Burnside move again," said Faust-  mann|: "What's he got to  move,,', said Forcek, "besides  his toothpicks?"  Certainly the most important possession in that house  was my beloved three-legged  electric frying pan. It was the  only cooking utensil I owned  and I made everything in it;  soups, stews, tea. You name it,  I made it in my electric frying  pan. I can't remember how  long I had it, how the leg got  broken; or what eventually  happened to it, but for a long  time it seemed to be the  absolute center of my universe.  I found that if I propped a box  of Catelli Spaghetti under thc  broken leg it was exactly the  right height to sit level and thus  keep the contents inside the  pan.*  I was reminded of the three-  legged frying pan by remembering the visit of a couple of  Irishmen that took place in the  house on Marine Drive. They  were John Breen of Pender  Harbour Realty and his friend  the playwright, John Kelly. I  bought a couple of bottles of  Bushmills Irish Whiskey a-  gainst their visit having known  a few Irishmen with a fair way  with a bottle and, since thc  bibulous Mr. Trower was also  in attendance, two bottles  seemed a requisite amount.  Then, as now, John Breen was  a non-drinker as it turned out  so while we sat by the fireplace  swilling hot Irish Whiskies I  kept prancing less and less  steadily through to thc kitchen  making tea in thc electric frying  pan for my non-imbibing guest.  The gifted man who died a  tragic drunk was Irish playwright Brendan Behan who  expired in his late thirties,  consumed by his unquenchable  thirst for the Bitch Goddess  Booze.; .1-say 'Bitch' advisedly  for alcohol is both a seductive  and a vicious mistress.  One of the three masterful  dramas that Behan gave us in  his tragically shortened life was  perhaps the best and most  eloquent statement of the case  against capital punishment  ever made. It is called The  Quare Fellow and has been  made into an absolutely first  Irate movie with the same title.  Six years ago Allan Crane, who  Was the .founder and operator  of the Kwahatamoss Film  Society, brought The Quare  Fellow to the Twilight Theatre  and Brean and Kelly came  down from Pender Harbour for  the occasion.  The 'quare' fellow of the title  is the condemned man and her  never appears In 'the movie  except as a pair of legs walking  towards the gallows near the  movie's end and finally, as the  camera travels up his body in  thc last shot, as a black-hooded  figure with a hangman's rope  around his neck. The movie  focuses entirely on the effect of  thc hanging on the man's wife,  on the warden, on his fellow  prisoners, and on the prison  guards. It is a moving, compassionate, penetrating and  compelling work of genius.  It comes to mind again these  years later because of the  cynical expediency with which  Joe Clark is, despite the fact  that he is himself a convinced  abolitionist, allowing capital  punishment to be used to score  political brownie points with  that unenlightened segment of  our society which still passionately believes in ritualized  murder, despite thc fact that it  has been proven that it is not a  deterrent and that the number  of murders taking place in  Canada has actually declined in  the years in which there have  been no hangings.  All of us who saw The Quare  Fellow that night of three-  legged frying pans, tea, whiskey  and firelight were of the  opinion that the movie should  be shown all over the country,  should bc included in school  curricula, thai thc simple  eloquence with which it spoke  against social murder should bc  heard by all. Six years later it  still seems like a good idea to  mc.  We often think of the ancient  Greeks as being capable of  generating quaint, but generally irrelevant tales of fantasy,  death, incest and the like, but I  heard a story the other day that  recalls just how timeless some  of those incredible yarns are. I  can't guarantee the veracity of  ifthls'.-one, but' it's just weird,  en'bugh to be true. Remember  the one about Pygmalion,  where this fellow creates lor  himself the "perfect" woman,  with unexpected consequences?  My story involves a modern  day Pygmalion.  In this case, a lonely, divorced, computer programmer  with a distinctly heterosexual  inclination but generally jaundiced opinion of women decided to construct for himself  the "ultimate" girlfriend with  the help of his best friend, the  computer.  He began by instructing the  computer to display various  facial and body parts on the  display screen. From these  parts he chose what he thought  were the most attractive features. He chose hair reminiccnt  of Farrah Fawcett Major's, a  forehead similar to Linda Day  George, eyes like Gina I.ola-  whatshername, a nose like Mia  Farrow's, a chin like Raqucl  Welch's (not to mention a  number of other prominent  features of this noteable lady),  the legs of Juliet Prowse, and  the belly button of Brigitte  Bardeau. When he had installed all of the bits and pieces  in their appropriate locations,  the screen of his computor  terminal displayed a creature  that resembled a Barbie doll  with a severe case of nymphomania.  Now that he had thc physical  characteristics of his electronic  girlfriend assembled, the difficult part began. Hc started to  build her personality.

She also  had to be a good conversationalist so she was "taught" all  of Shakespere, Oscar Wilde,  and the collected volumes of  lhc Reader's Digest. As he  preferred his wo'then with ibit  ofa kinky streak,jSf$njHn  the works of the Marquis de  Sade.  Her personality was rounded  out with liberal quotes from  Dale Carnegie. She was  coached in grace, deportment,  culture, and elegance. She was  clothed from Bloomingdalcs  and jewelled from Til'fanys,  and then the third phase began.  She was taught how to play  poker, drink beer from a bottle,  handicap the ponies and love  watching Monday night foot-  tail. This latter exercise resulted in an appropriate hatred  for Howard Cosell and an  indepth understanding of the  nickel defense, thc rotating  secondary and thc fake blitz  with double coverage.

She never nagged  when he watched college fool-  ball, never complained when he  went to the track, never became  outraged if he stayed out all  night and never said a word  when he went drinking with the  boys. She was as pleasant as  could be when the lawn needed  mowing, when the roof leaked,  when thc toaster broke arid  when the garage door got  stuck. In short she was the  perfect woman, a woman any  man would cherish and desire.  Unfortunately, things didn't  stay that way. After a few  months of computer heaven,  filled with all the bits and bytes  a man might ask, the relationship started to break down. The  first signs of connubial pathology appeared simple enough  to correct. It began with an  inclination to complain of  headaches in the evening. It  developed into a persistent  complaint. Every night it was  "not tonight my loving and  passionate god", (he got a bit  carried away when he programmed her for respect). He called  in a psychiatrist to analyse her  program.

Coast News, November 20,1979  The Shakecutters  Part II  We were hired on a piecework basis which sounded fine  in theory but after a couple of  pretty skimpy cheques, I came  to the conclusion that I was  being rather grossly underpaid  in relation to the frequently  gruelling work. The feeling of  being exploited began to grow  but I shrugged it off at first. I  had little alternative jobwise  and Jake was, I supposed,  leaching me the business. One  weekend in Vancouver however, I ran into a couple of guys  from Mission who knew Jake.  He was apparently notorious  for short-percentaging his  crews. "I 'd watch that joker if I  was you, kid," one of them said.  I resolved to ask Jake for  more money. I waited till he  seemed in a good mood and  I hen propositioned him. But he  went immediately into a hard-  donc-by song and dance about  high overheads and low shake  prices. Hc was too big to argue  with and I was in no position to  quit so 1 let it ride. But I  determined to get out from  under at the first opportunity.  Stump Hollow lay on the  upper side of the highway.  Straggling along the beach  about 400 yards below us and  screened by a strip of trees and  brush, was a shack colony of  real squatters. A couple of  them worked for the mill but  Pages from a Life-Log  Peter Trower  ($T\ SUNSHINE  XZ_y KITCHENS  FINE CABINETS  886-9411  Gibsons.  most worked as little as  possible, subsisting on welfare,  unemployment insurance or  pensions. There was Pirate  Sam, an old prospector who  worked part time slinging beer  at the local bar and made  potent, foul-tasting moonshine. There was the numerous  Mollett family and their busted  down fishboat the old man was  always threatening to fix and  take north but never did. There  was restless Mrs. Guelph with  the alcoholic husband, perpetually on the make for  anything in pants. There were  the squabbling, drunken Bron-  sons with their cowed, slave-  driven- kids. And there was  Mike Milano.  Mike had once worked at the  plant but was now an itinerant  boomman. He was balding, in  his late fifties and had a slightly  simian look. Originally from  Italy, he had barracked with  Mussolini during World War 1  and later fled the Brown Shirts  to Canada. Although he had  been in the country for over 30  years, his accent was still  pronounced. A bachelor, he  had taken to visiting ourstump  ranch. He was on his best  behaviour in those days and I  enjoyed talking with him. I told  him of my irritating situation  with Jake."Listen," he said,  "there's plenty of good shake  timber right here on this  property. I've done a bit of  splitting in my time.

Wooden Toys  Weavings  885-3818  wings^^l  Somewhere in the back of my  head I must have considered  this. Now the vague idea  jumped front and center to  become a practical possibility.  But there were certain immediate obstacles. We had no power  saw, packing frame or frows  and no clear knowledge of the  market. "We'll work all that  out," assured Mike.  The next day wc took a walk  through the property. I'd  always assessed it before from a  logger's viewpoint, seeing only  the standing trees. Now we  studied it with different eyes. It  was a ravaged tract, logged  originally by thc old Hastings  Company in the early years of  the century. The gigantic  stumps testified to this. It had  been re-logged for hemlock at  some later date. Jap shingle-  bolters had worked the place  too and left their evident traces.  But despite this long ago  plundering, there was still  much left. Barkless, white  snags reared like ghost trees  through the dim tangle; enormous windfalls lay half buried  and untouched in branch  shadowed hollows. There was  incipient money everywhere.  I'd been in the driver's seat  all along and too dim witted to  realize it. Since my mother  owned the claim there would be  no stumpage or royalties to  pay. This was buckshee wood.  In the first heady rush of  discovering the obvious, I was  all for quitting Jake on the spot  and flying right at it. But Mike  reminded me of the problems  wc had to iron out first. We  were both strapped for cash  beyond bare living expenses;  there was the matter of equipment and markets. I agreed to  stick with Jake for a bit longer  while Mike, who wasn't working, located the tools we'd need  and found a buyer. The frows  or splitting knives were no  trouble. Several of the older  residents  had them and we  simply borrowed a couple.  Mike found out the measurements for a packing frame on  which the bundles were made  and knocked one together out  of scrap lumber. The aluminum  strips used to cinch the bundles  down had to be ordered from  town so we sent for a couple of  boxes. We made contact with a  buyer called Jimmy Chow who  owned a shingle mill on False  Creek. He agreed to send a  truck over every two or three  weeks, pick up our bundles and  blanks and pay us cash at lhc  roadside. That left the power-  saw. We'd have to put out al  least two good loads before we  could afford to buy one. Mike  began working on one of thc  handiest windfalls with a  crosscut but it was ridiculously  slow.  That weekend I borrowed  Jake's McCuUoch on thc  pretext that I wanted to buck  firewood. It was the least he  owed me for the lousy money  but I knew damn well he would  never have agreed had he  suspected what was really  going on. Saturday and Sunday we almost wore the bar off  that saw and burned up several  tanks of gas but by the time  we'd finished we had enough  blocks bucked to make up  more than a load. Nothing  could stop us now. We were on  our way to the big money for  sure.  To Be Continued  A freak accident occurred on Highway 101 in  Halfmoon Day on Wednesday, November 14. The  driver of theabovepickup was momentarily blinded by  the sun and drove Into the rear of a tree chipper. The  driver of the chipper was wearing earplugs and did not  realize anything was wrong until the car had been  chewed up to the windshield on the passenger side.  The driver, who was a local man, was taken to the  hospital with minor injuries. No name was released by  the R.C.M.P.  Choral concert this week  by Susan Elek  The Sunshine Coast Arts  Council will present the fourth  concert of its series Countryside  Concerts this Sunday, November 25 at the new Arts Centre in  Sechelt, at 2 p.m. The excellenl  acoustics of the building should  make this choral concert a most  memorable one.  The University Chamber  Singers from the University of  British Columbia under the  leadership of Courtland Hult-  gerg, are known not only for  their excellence of standard but  for the good rapport they  manage to develop with their  audience through their friendly  manner and Mr. Hultberg's  witty comments.  The choir is a small select  ensemble made up of 12  students in the Department of  Music at the University of  British Columbia. Since their  establishment in 1964, the  Chamber Singers have followed  a policy of performing only '  those works that larger choral  groups find too intimate or too  difficult to perform well. These  works include the literature of  the Renaissance, chiefly madrigals, and the very latest 20th  century.  Their programme on Sunday  will include works by Monteverdi, Gesualdo de Venosa,  I.igeti.lhe conductor, Hultberg.  As a special, they will feature  a few Christmas carols, the date  being precisely one month  before Christmas. Refreshments will follow.

A committee has been working since September, keeping  an eye open for promising  pieces of art by promising  young artists. Of course, not all  these kids are going to be  artists, but encouragement of  the creative art is a necessity for  the stimulation of imagination  and feeling of freedom of the  child to express his or her view  of the world.  The pieces of art are principally chosen from schools on  the Sunshine Coast and from  the private collections of Sheila  Page and Joan Warn. The local  School Board must be commended for their aid in helping  us to organize the exhibit, and  hopefully a show such as this  will inspire many of our young  people to pursue their art, no  matter at what level. No  children by the way, were  informed that their work would  be chosen.  The age group spans preschoolers to grade seven. Some  of the pieces were done several  years ago though, so former  students of Sheila Page and  Joan Warn might find some of  their art work displayed.  Media presented in the show  will be drawings, paintings,  prints, collage, photography,  claywork, and multi-media.  The Performing Arts Committee and Elaine Middleton  are collaborating in thc exhibit  with the presentation ofa small  showcase of talented, young  performers from the Coast.

This indicates a  major change of activity for  many of us. The undermentioned prognostications point  to those areas where renewed  energy should be channeled  during the up-coming months.  Meanwhile, Venus conjoins  dreamy Neptune and squares  restrictive Saturn bringing  deception and disappointment  to relationships heading nowhere.  Babies born next weekend  will be impulsive, eccentric and  possess a strong sense of duty.  ARIES (March 21 - April 19)  You've got to prepare for  many months of increased  assignments and hard work.  There'll be pressure where you  perform daily jobs andservices.  Patience will be needed to  avoid friction with co-workers.  Resulting health upsets may be  linked to over-exertion or  inflammatory complaints.  Take days off when inner voice  pleads.

Beware impulsive rental or  real estate transactions. Meanwhile, expect to share a secret  with close associate.  CANCER (June 22 - July 22)  The remainder of the year  brings an increase in all forms  of short distance communications. Local messenger could  be your next role. Future  involvement may require you  to take countless short trips.  Plan to drive more slowly from  now on. Brother, sister or  neighbour could be source of  prolonged irritation or dispute.  Meanwhile, infatuation with  co-worker loses its oomph!  LEO (July 23 - Aug. 22)  Fighting for your property,  possessions or financial rights  will expend much time and  energy during up coming  months. Don't be bullied into  relinquishing treasured item.  Personal initiative and enterprise should help boost savings  and resources. However, beware reckless spending sprees.  Remember to insure and guard  valuables against fire. Meanwhile, check background of  recent mystery person.

Others will  soon notice boost in personal  vitality. Meanwhile, try to be  more realistic concerning confusing domestic arrangement.

Meanwhile, vague  message needs clarification.  SCORPIO (Oct. 24 - Nov. 22)  The next six months is a time  of your life to do something  positive about your long range  goals, hopes and wishes. You  must now make enquiries,  study possibilities and accept  the help of friends possessing  influence and 'know-how'.  You've sat around day dreaming for long enough.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23 -  Dec. 21)  Be determined to direct fresh  energy into promotion of  career, position, achievements  or local reputation. Now's the  time to start fighting your way  to the top. Don't be intimidated by powerful authority  figure envious of your courage.  Plan to reach peak of success by  next summer. Meanwhile,  Venus and Neptune add a  touch of mystery to your  present irresistible personality.

The title is  taken from a Victorian poem  for popular recital; "Backward,  turn backward, O lime in your  flighl./Make me a child again  jusl for tonight." and this is  precisely what Evans achieves.  The novel encompasses a single  childhood year in the life of its  autobiographical hero, Gilbert  Egan, in turn-of-the-century  Ontario.  The momentous events of  historical melodrama remain  beyond the limits of the small  town of Gait. In fact, it is a  major source of frustration for  Gilbert that the great nation-  spanning railroad has been  recently completed; otherwise  his father might have been an  engineer and he might have  lived a pioneer life in the West.  Instead his father teaches  science at the collegiate, waxes  his moustache and is thought to  be something of a stuck-up  ; dude, while Gilbert dreams of  running away to live with the  Indians and make his fortune in  the wilderness, like the runaway boys in the English Boy's  Own Annuals devoured by  Gilbert and his friends.  Just how momentous the  year will actually be, particularly for Gilbert, is not revealed  until the end of the novel, but in  the meantime Hubert Evans  reconstructs that year with a  precision historians are sure to  envy. He seems to have developed a kind of miraculous total  recall for smallest details of his  early life. No amount of  painstaking research and imagination could enable a younger  writer to achieve the indelible  stamp of truth that is on every  page of O Time In Your Flight.  Some of the objects and  inventions need Robert Jack's  illustrations to be recognized  by most of us. But O Time In  Your Flight is more than a  historian's delight.  Margaret Atwood said in a  recent interview that she  doesn't write books about  people who have faith and hope  for the future because she  doesn't see much in the contemporary world to inspire  either. Perhaps then, Gilbert  Silver Donald Cameron has  suggested, "a mournful comment on what happened to that  promising nation". Yet it is  worth noting, I think, that a  significant number of people in  this country still respond to the  challenge of life in the Northern  wilderness of this country with  a curiousity and enthusiasm  that is the equal of Gilbert  Egan's.  Neither is Gilbert merely one  of the plucky one-dimensional  heroes of a Boy's Annual. By  the end of the novel he has not  given up on his dreams, but he  has gradually, unconsciously  acquired a maturity and a sense  of responsibility to his family  that are the first signs of  manhood. His growing awareness of the complexity of the  problems faced by adults is  very subtly handled, as is  everything about O Time In  Your Flight. Hubert Evan's  writing is, throughout, polished and marvellously evocative. We should all do what we  do so well at 87.  Don't expect to rush through  O Time In Your Flight. In many  ways, it's very much a 19th  century book; it moves at a  gentler, more reflective pace.  To rush it is to cheat yourself of  much of the experience, so take  your time. It's worth it. All for  now.  Hubert Evans was photographed in his Roberts Creek  home recently by Fran Berger.  Hubert Evans interview  to be broadcast Saturday night  by George Cooper  All the ingredients of a good  story are there; a central  character who yearns to see his  hopes fulfilled, who yearns for  affection from those close to  him, who dreams dreams ot  being a free spirit, and added to  that a setting that works to  hamper all these expectations.  That the central character is a  boy of eight or nine and the  setting, a country town in  Ontario at the turn of the  century by no means makes the  story a bland one. Rather it is a  very down-to-earth tale.  Gilbert, the nine year old,  sees life unfolding before him���  not always as he would like it  to���and he reaches out intently  to partake of it to the full. And  Gilbert's hopes soon have the  reader caught up in the story,  the town springs alive and he  sees the characters go their  ways as though the reader lived  in a house on the same street.  A master story teller, Hubert  Evans in a lean narrative style  deftly weaves a charming tale.  It stirs the recollections of  anyone whose childhood was  spent in towns with similar  customs and economies transplanted to the prairies by  migrant Ontarions. The unhurried pace of life, the strong  influence of church doctrines,  the strict conduct of outward  . life, the earnestness of political  views are all there and when  seen through the nine year old's  puzzled eyes the humor of  many a situation wafts through  like a pleasant aroma. If  children still find adult behaviour hard to understand at  times, and if they still have to  resign themselves to the dense-  ness of adults when it comes to  discerning a child's expectations then the youngsters too  can read this story with interest.  The very writing of this  book���Evans was in his mid-  eighties when he produced O  Time In Your Flight���is an  object' lesson to all, especially  those of us in our golden years,  and that is that skills can be  kept sharp by keeping them in  Through the observations of  the boy, Gilbert, there peeps  out the humor of life that  engenders understanding but  not scorn for our fellow man.  Gilbert's uncle, the one that  owned the livery stable, always  had a sick horse that needed his  attention just about church  time nearly every Sunday. And  his mother said she would give  the apostle Paul a piece of her  mind for the way he talked  about women, but she only said  that at home.  Gilbert's father keeps a  distance between him and his  boy���he is the authority figure,  not a companion or friend.  Children did not discuss matters with parents, at least not in  his house, and they did as they  were bid and did not talk back.  Gilbert often wished his father  was not a high school teacher  and wore work clothes like  other fathers and was not called  "Mr." by everybody. Gilbert  would have liked the coal oil  man, his friend, just to talk  "man to man" with his father.  Those were the times when a  boy would grow angry over the  story of how Black Beauty was  mistreated by the men who  hired the horse at the livery  stable. Times when five cents  would buy, after lengthy deliberations among themselves,  six boys enough candy for the  day. Bulleyes were six for a  cent, all day suckers one cent,  and licorice plugs for spitting  contests and fooling the teacher  into thinking you were really  chewing tobacco, were a cent  each. And Gilbert's mother  paid a copper for every twenty-  five flies swatted in the house,  and if a fellow let a few extra in  the door he could save his  conscience with the thought the  flies would have got in sooner  or later.

Radio's Programme  Guide states briefly that Anthology, Saturday, November  24 at 10:05 p.m. will present a  tribute to 87 year old writer and  poet Hubert Evans.  This is long overdue and has  been made possible by the  determination and dedication  of former C.B.C. announcer  Bert Nelson of Wilson Creek.  Bert had been an admirer of  Hubert Evans since reading his  classic novel Mist on the River  (published in 19S4), a story  presenting the difficulties of  young Native Indians caught  between two such different  cultures. Coming to the Coast  in 1975 to look for a home Bert  discovered that Hubert lived in  ^^^^^^^^^^^^^ Roberts Creek and went to see  Egan's boyish sense of wonder him.

About three years ago a part  of that tape was aired on Good  Morning Radio by Bob Sharpies  to the great delight of listeners  all over the Province and we  waited in vain for more.  In these days Canadian  writers, the Atwoods, Bertons,  Mowats and Munros are  household names, their books  prominently displayed in the  Canadian section of every  bookstore across the country.  It wasn't always thus and  writers of Huber Evans' generation had to turn to American  or British publishers and were  and are still virtually unknown  in their own country.  This seemed all wrong to  Bert Nelson who believed they  too should share in our newfound pride in ourselves as  Canadians and in the creative  talents this country has inspired. For more than three  years he has tried to get air time  GIBSONS  on C.B.C. radio for his tape.  Producers' reactions both here  and in Toronto, busy with the  present generation of writers,  were predictable���"Evans? Never heard of him".  Now, thanks to Bert Nelson's persistence and the  eventual co-operation of Anthology's executive producer in  Toronto, Howard Engel, the  interview has been updated and  combined to be a part of a  belated but very welcome  tribute which will be heard  across the country.  Commenting on the successful completion of this struggle,  Bert Nelson said, "It's specially  nice that the tribute is being  aired co-incidental to the  publishing of Hubert's latest  work���a novel, O Time in your  Flight.

Then  there was the school yard and  the fights the big boys promoted among the smaller, and  the occasion Gilbert was  stuffed into a post hole with  only his head showing, and as  he was enjoying having an  excuse for being late, a startled  school principal pulled him out  and led him back to class by the  car.

People from different countries have  different customs and Christmas seems to be the  time when we harken back to our childhood and  attempt to recreate the well loved memories.  With my British background I'm making  Christmas cakes and puddings, and if you haven't  already made your Christmas cake you should  havel I've just made mine so I'm feeling quite  smug. The traditional British Christmas cake is a  rich dark fruit cake bursting at the seams with  raisins and currants and candied fruit, foaked in  liquor and left for all the tastes to mature for  several weeks, or months if possible. Just before  Christmas it gets covered in marzipan and royal  icing���and then it gets decorated. When I was a  child my mother always used to make a snow  scene complete with Eskimos sliding down snow  banks and trees surrounding a little pond that she  made with an old watchglass and a benign Santa  Claus chuckling over all. I remember making an  elaborate angel out of icing one year���he was  even blowing a trumpet. Christmas cake icing is  great fun.  When making a Christmas cake there are  certain precautions that one takes to ensure  success. One simply must line one's tin as the  cake has to stay in the oven for simply ages and  can easily got singed round the outside. Burnt  Christmas cake just isn't as good as the  unscathed variety. I always line my tin with two  layers of waxed paper, sides and base, stuck  together with some melted shortening. Then  cover the outside of the tin with pieces cutfrorn a e  brown paper bag���at least two layers thick and  tied on with string. Lastly, cut a circle of brown'  paper, brushed with shortening on one Aide.':  Place that on top of the cake when it goes in the j  oven and remove about half an hour before the ���  cake comes out. That will save you picking out  cindered currants. This preparation of the tin may *  sound like a fiddle, but it's really worth it.  The other thing that makes a good cake is the  preparation of the fruit. Soak it for 48 hours in  whatever liquor your recipe calls for. Place all the  fruit in a large bowl, pour in the booze, stir it all up,  cover it up and let it sit at room temperature for  the flavours to blend.  If you're going to decorate your cake, you'll  want to end up with a flat surface so once you've  got the mixture in the pan flatten it to make a  slight dent in the middle and then it won't rise to a  hill���unless you want a hill in the middle of your  snow scene of coursel  When you're storing your cake, wrap it up in tin  foil and place it in a tin in a cool place. If you have  drops of liquor left in bottles, make little holes in  your cake with a darning needle or skewer or  knitting needle���whatever's nearest���and let the  booze trickle down the holes to fortify the cake.  Every family has it's own patent recipe and  there must be as many recipes for traditional  English Christmas cake as there are emigrants  from its sceptred isles.

"They have to be the  stupidest dogs!"  Well, he's entitled to his  opinion of course, but 1 suspect  that dogs like people cannot be  classified by such sweeping  generalities, and that like  people each individual is  quicker at some things than  others.  Some dugs have good spatial  perception; ihev quickly figure  out how to get from A to B  when the direct route is  blocked; others who may be  completely confused by this  problem can easily relate their  weight and strength to a-  nother's and adjust accordingly*  It's all relative isn't it? And  depends upon what criteria you  use 10 judge intelligence in an  animal.  II' it's servile obedience to his  master you seek it will be  difficult to obtain from a  Boxer. They arc undoubtedly a  strong willed breed, determined to do their own thing.  Overly friendly extroverts and  natural clowns, their thing is to  enjoy life, to have fun, to play  and everything, anything and  anyone provides an opportunity lor play and for elbowing.  Foolish? Silly? Maddening?  Yes. But stupid���I don't think  so.  I have to confess to some  partiality. We've had a Boxer in  the family for almost 32 years.  Their particularly endearing  quality common to the breed is  of not taking themselves, or  allowing anyone else to take  thcmself too seriously. How  can you stay depressed or  haruour the Monday morning  blues when you have joie-de-  vlvre personified in the house?  Also, of course, to keep that  phenomenal energy under  acceptable control, daily walks  cannot bc avoided.  We came by our first Boxer  somewhat by acident. After the  war, both jobs and housing  were in short supply in England  so wc accepted a three year  contract in Germany with the  British Army of the Rhine.  Frank continuing his Army  Intelligence work in a civilian  capacity.  When I was able to join him  thc unit was in thc process of  moving   from  a  small town  outside Hanover where every-  , one   lived   in   the   security  ; compound, to a place where no  ' security could bc provided. A  guard    dog   was   recommended���"But remember,"  Frank said firmly, "we can't  take him home because of the  six month quarantine restrictions."  I didn't wanl a Shepherdora  Doberman, so a Boxer was  suggested. By the time he was  old enough to leave his mother  we'd been transferred to an  aparlment in Hamburg where  we really didn't need a dog, but  thc die had been cast.  Puck was four months old  when he caught up to us on a  weekend in February when  Frank was away. We lived in a  ihree story row house near the  Alster which before World War  I had been a single family  home. Between lhc wars il had  been converted like its neighbours in ihree upartmenls and  a basement suite. We lived in  the middle and when Puck, left  in the kitchen for the night,  howled like a banshee 1 look  him into the bedroom before  Ihe neighbours complained. He  lost no time in ensconsing  himself cosily in bed and when  Frank returned a couple of  days later he found his righl to  his bed holly contested wilh  fierce puppy growls!  He was nol quite a year old  when our first daughter was  born and from their first  introduction when she was a  few hours old he was lolally  captivated, appointing himself  her guardian and playmate.  She would stay content in her  playpen as long as Puck was  nearby and when she outgrew  it, but couldn't yet walk, giggles  and laughter usually meant  Puck was rolling her over with  his nose. After she learned to  walk they would racket  through the apartment, invariably landing in a heap of  flailing legs and arms. One of  the favourite outdoor games  was tug-of-war with a stick.  Puck always balancing his 80  lbs. to her 20, never pulling her  over or letting her fall.  We sent him to Hamburg  Police School for training and  he passed the obedience course  with distinction, but completely failed the advance course for  guard dogs in which he was  supposed to defend his master  when under attack. Hc couldn't  be persuaded that the exercise  wasn't a game so he always  joined in attacking his master!  He also couldn't be persuaded  that school had anything to do  with homes���all commands  and expectations were met with  a stubborn, "no way!"  He had some sort of sixth  sense���which we came to  notice slowly but could never  explain. Everyone coming to  the house in Benedictstrasse  had to use the same gate. It was  iron, old and sagging on rusting  hinges, and squeaked, grating  on the path as it was pushed  open. We discovered that Puck  knew when someone came  through the gate whether they  were coming to visit us. When  the gate squeaked we came to  look at the dog, if he ignored  the sound the visitor wasn't  ours. Otherwise his head would  be up, listening intently, then  he'd go to the door to meet  whoever it might be. Often we  didn't know. It was the time of  the Berlin airlift and much  intelligence activity. Frank's  "clients" often reported to him  at home not wanting to be seen  entering the downtown office  so he never knew who might be  coming.  Puck's sixth sense was very  useful, but whether it could be  classified as "intelligence" I  don't know. He had great  intuitive understanding of  babies and toddlers, all of  whom he loved without reservation. Older children who  tease, he held in low esteem and  wasn't beyond chasing them.  He was a consummate actor,  fought every male dog he could  engage in combat regardless of  size, with heroic enthusiasm  and absolutely no technique���  always getting bitten himself  without inflicting a scratch on  his opponent. When dragged in  and scolded he sat with sad,  penitent expression, big, brown  eyes almost brimming with  tears. "I am sorry���I won't do it  again." But those who could see  the littly stumpy tail wriggling  with joy knew he was really  thinking, "That was fun, what a  good fight, just wait till I get a  go at Prince again".  Of course we took him home  with us and brought him to  Canada too. He was, with the  kids, a part of the family and  stupid or bright wasn't of any  consideration at all.

In Christ's service  Discovery of the Spirit  Rev. George W. Inglis  Sunshine Coast  United Churches  One of the toughest tasks in  the world is to discover a gold  mine and be forced to keep cool  about it until all the claims have  been properly filed and authorized.  The prospector, who just a  few moments before was a  dirty, tired and forlorn old  desert rat, or mountain goat, is  suddenly shot into the dizzying  prospect of being a potentially  powerful and influential person  who may never have to lift a  pickaxe again. It is an intoxicating, thrilling event, a once-  in-a-lifetime experience that  can turn a modest old sourdough into a strutting peacock!  In its dramatically close  analogy, the searcher after  knowledge is frequently catapulted into sudden ecstasy with  the discovery of some truth,  such as the apocryphal story of  Archimedes leaping from his  bathtub shouting, "Eureka! I  have found it!" on his discovery  of the mystery of buoyancy.  It is equally possible to  understand how a person feels  when he or she suddenly  discovers Christ, and God's  Holy Spirit, and for the first  time becomes aware of thc  powerful force that is literally  flooding their consciousness  with a feeling of love and well-  being, identity and self-worth.  It is like discovering thc  mother lode and the fountain  of knowledge at the same time,  and thc "discovery" is so  overwhelming that thc ecstatic  and elated treasure finder is  forced to shout his or her  message from the roof tops���  and thai is good!  Ihere is a dark side to this  wonderful event, and I speak  from long observation of the  phenomenon in the lives of  those around me, as well as  from a more deliberate and  purposeful achievement of the  same awe-inspiring and uplifting phenomenon in my own  life. This dark side is the  tendency on the part of many  who share in this bountiful  discovery, to look on their  fellow humans with a judgemental eye.  So many "born again Christians", as the newly converted  like to call themselves, overtly  criticize those around them  who have not shared in the  same soul-stirring experience  they have enjoyed. In their  criticism, they all too often  include a judgement as to  whether the other person is  really a Christian or not.  In their joy and elation, they  become triumphant, instead of  humble, and their ecstatic  witness to their new found  knowledge becomes judgement, which turns oft their  listeners, rather than inspiring  Ihem.  This is not a new phenomenon, however, but is as old as the  church of Christ itself. Just 20  odd years or so after the apostle  Paul had founded the church at  Corinth, we find him in II  Corinthians having to address  a problem raised by a group  from the mother church in  Jerusalem, whom Paul called  "superlative apostles", in his  dry sarcastic way.  This group claimed to have  made its own discoveries which  led its members to believe they  were true apostles directly  descended from Moses, and  that they contained the true  message, which said that all  those who were Christians had  to be orthodox Jews first, with  the proper circumcision, ob  servance of temple worship,  and compliance with Jewish  law, including purity and food  laws.  Paul,    who    had    already  fought a similar problem in the  Galatian churches, in an impassioned and beautiful plea,  told the Corinthians that they  need not fear the claim of the  old covenant, but:  "...when a man turns to the  Lord the veil is removed.  Now the Lord is the Spirit,  and where the Spirit of the  Lord is, there is freedom.  And we all, with unveiled  face, are being changed into  his likeness from one degree  of glory to another; for this  comes from the Lord who is  the Spirit." (II Cor. 3:16b-  18).  Paul was an orthodox Jew  himself, and probably better  qualified to speak on the  subject of the covenant of  Moses than those who were  judging him, and found him  wanting. It is unfortunately so  today, also, that young and  enthusiastic new converts to  the Christian faith, especially if  their conversion is dramatic  and Spirit-filled, are inclined to  look at their more conservative  brothers and sisters in Christ,  and find them wanting.  Instead of moving into their  new life, in Christ, with joyous  and confident desire to learn  more of this amazing addition  to their lives, they frequently  set out to evangelize and  conven everyone in sight,  including those beautiful old  Christians who have been  serving their Lord quietly and  loyally for a half century or  This lady was one of a light voter turnout in Halfmoon  Bay.  Aero elections  by Sharon Gurney  With our Annual Election  meeting having taken place on  November 14, our executives  are as follows: President - Ken  Gurney, Vice President -  Dennis Davison, Treasurer -  Len Wray and Secretary - Art  more.  The result, in many instances, has been to inflict deep  wounds on a long standing but  uninformed believer, who all of  a sudden finds himself or  herself all of a sudden being  told his or her faith of years has  been spurious, based upon  improper understanding of  scripture. The detractor frequently has a liberal stock of  "proof-texts", verses that support his or her contention, if  taken literally and usually out  of context, so that the listener is  impressed with his or her  scriptural knowledge.  What a pity that the instant-  evangelists don't take some  time, after that wonderful event  of conversion, to assess their  position and to pray and study  scripture for guidance, before  they start laying heavy trips on  everyone in sight!

"Ay fought yew vas a  pcrm-an-ent feexchure up at  Clowhome!"  .."Well, Tim I was about to  ask you thc same t'ing!", 1  replied, hoping I wasn't offending by matching his accent  as I am prone to do when I am  around Tim for a few hours.  "Veil, ay yoost vanted tew  hev a loook at dis helichopter  logging de company iss doin'  opp har. Dey yoost mought  bring vun of dem big sky hooks  into Clowhome!"  I invited Tim over to the staff  house to get in out of the cold  drizzle that was beginning to  settle in, before answering his  original question. As a matter  of fact, I was beginning to  wonder what kind of an answer  I was going to be able to come  up with to satisfy him for he  was always ribbing me about  being retired and living in the  lap of luxury. I was sure I was  going to have trouble convincing him of my motives for  beiiig here. After getting him  settled with a cold beer, I joined  him atid sat down to try to  come up with an answer that  would satisfy both him and me.  I began by explaining that  the company wanted a large  float and ramp built at the head  of the inlet to unload the freight  boats, tankers and airplanes.  "Shucks, eny yippo logger  kin dew dat!", says Tim. "An'  yew ain't no yippo logger  nomore!"  "But Tim, maybe there aren't  many gyppo loggers around  these days. They're all working  for thc big companies as  handymen or foremen or the  like. And the old gyppo as we  used to know them , that could  get into the business with a  Gilkrist Jack and a roll of  hardtack, now has to put  together a quarter of a million  bucks worth of equipment and  a pile of cash to look at a  contract or a timber sale! And  how many of this younger  generation have built donkey  slids, floats dr A-frames?'  "Veil, maybe yew vas right.  Dey hev tew dig yew old  snoose-chewers outa de vood-  vbrk tew hayvire dem toged-  der!"  Tim seemed to be satisfied  with that so we were able to  settle down to talk of interests  we had shared over the years  from the old steam yarder days  to the present mobile equipment and helicopter loggers.  After a couple of beers and a  final agreement that aerial  logging was here to stay, we  called it a day and hit the sack.  Awakening at 5:15 the next  morning to the lash of a  pouring rain driven by gale  force winds, I asked myself the  same question as Tim had  asked the night before.  What in Copenhagen or any  other place was I doing up here  anyway',' Was it money? Well, 1  suppose it helps as wc are  planning a New Zealand-  Australia holiday this winter  and bur normal budget doesn't  cover Ihat kind of expenditure  without a bit of a struggle. But  that was not the main reason!  My wife Lucy is convinced  she kiiows the answer.  "You are a 'workaholic'!",  she says. "I just don't know  what I am going to do to get  you out of thc woods and into  our back yard!"  But that is not the answer  either. Of that I am convinced.  lam just as lazy as thc next guy  and enjoy my freedom from the  slave market. I can work when I  feel like it or lay in bed any lime  I wish. And thc psychology of  working because I want to  rather than because I have to s  a great energy producer.  It was on thc way to the  beach an hour later, driving  slowly in the heavy downpour,  when,  what   1   think is the  8 corner  answer, came to me. I was  listening to my little crew  talking about the job we were  doing and of how long it had  been needed. How the special  float logs, 80 foot cedars of four  and five foot diameter, had  been bucked in half by mistake  because they had been sitting in  a landing for so long. And how  other materials accumulated  for the job had been waiting for  some one to put it all together.  Then the condition of the old  float and ramp was criticized  and how dress shoes and high  heels were awash with salt-  chuck on rainy, wet days when  trying to get ashore from the  aircraft. And how the pickups  sank the old, waterlogged  barge while trying to unload  the freight boat. And the three  big cedar logs that just kept the  barge above water and how  waterlogged they were.  One of my helpers made the  remark, "The guy that gets that  mess cleaned up and a new  r?.mp and float into place is  going to be remembered for a  long time around here!"  And there, I am sure, is the  answer. The great feel of pride  for a job completed. One that  may not be a work of art or a  thing of beauty, or a job that  maybe could have been done  better by someone else, but one  that will be in place for many  years and that thousands of feet  will cross, many tons of freight  will be unloaded, in the course  of keeping a camp supplied.  My name will not be on it; no  one will know who built it or  really give a damn; a hung-over  crew will cross it dejectedly on  the way in, elatedly on the way  out. The fact that it is a place to  be picked up and dropped off at  intervals will be of the only  importance to them.  I may never see the camp  again in my lifetime, but if I do,  I will cross over to shore and  look at it to see how it is  standing.up and if all is well, I  will say to my friend Tim,  ."Well, good buddy, she's still  afloat. A little loose in the  lashings and floating a bit  lower, but a few good cedars  parbuckled under her belly and  she'll be good as new for  another long spell!"  And creaking along on my  burl-studded cane I wonder if I  will be thinking to myself,  "Now, I wonder if I should have  a talk to the company about  that?"  Coast News, November 20,1979  Tutorial program at Elphie  Karin Achterberg displays one of the many fine outfits on display at the Sunnycrest  Mall Fashion Show on Friday evening.  Elphinstone School news  Elphinstone students have completed their first quarter of the  year's term. For those on semester this means half of the course is  over. The Communication Class plans to continue covering  school news to inform the community of the many exciting  programmes existing in our school and of new ones planned.  Laura Mathieson talked with Mrs. Virginia Douglas about the  Elphie Tutorial Programme. Kathleen Hall reports on the Science  Department's "Egg Dropping Contest". Kelly Henry interviewed  Mr. Harry Turner about the proposed Work Experience  Programme, its prospects and what it can do for the students.  Student work program  by Kelly Henry  What is the purpose of  school? Most will answer���to  prepare for life, and a career.  Many work skills have been  taught at Elphie, but not much  emphasis has been place on  actual work experience. Up  until now Elphinstone Commerce teacher, Harry Turner,  has been offering a two day job  experience programme in Personal Business Records 9. The  other job experience opportunity is for Senior Commerce  students; it only allows students to become familiar for a  week with secretarial occupations. Now, through Mr. Turner, this idea of job experience  within the schools is being  expanded. ���*  The new programme will  consist of three phases. The  first part of the new proposed  programme will start in the  English 10 classes. Students  will learn how to write resumes  and letters of application. Next,  they will take up job studies.  This will allow pupils to see  different categories of jobs and  discover where their interests  lie.  In May of 1980, the students  will work for one week in  Gibsons at a job related to their  field of interest.  So far, the prospects of the  programme becoming a reality  are very good. The teaching  staff, the English Department  and the Parents Association are  all pleased with the idea. Also,  the Gibsons Chamber of Commerce likes the plan.  The most encouraging news  so far is that 38 employers,  including B.C. Telephone, the  two Malls, and many area  merchants have consented to  "hire" a student for a week.  The main difference with the  past and proposed programme  is that it offers a broader scope,  and will try to look at all  occupations, contrary to the  business outlook of the Personal Business Records 9  course. The programmes purpose was summed up by Mr.  Turner, "The idea is to help  students develop realistic goals  for themselves regarding occupations."  Bear in mind that this is only  information concerning phase  one. As phases two and three  come into perspective, more  information will be presented  to keep you informed on the  workings of Elphie Students.  by Laura Mathieson  For some of us, learning and  understanding is more difficult  than for others. For these  individuals there is a programme within the school  where the Seniors assist Juniors. This programme is known  as Tutorial II.  The programme is designed  so that the Senior students who  are interested, may help the  Juniors in academic subjects,  benefitting all participants. The  teacher in charge of this  programme is Mrs. Virginia  Douglas. This programme is  run during school hours at  Elphinstone and has approximately 75 students involved  during a semester.  This programme is an especially good experience for those  Seniors going into social  service oriented careers. It gives  the Juniors needing a more  individualized programme  added tutoring in areas where it  would be quite difficult to learn  under regular circumstances.  This situation then results in  benefit to all involved, as the  tutors will better understand  the basic principles of language  learning, and the Juniors who  are being assisted, will feel  better about themselves, and  will be able to meet the social  and academic requirements in  preparation for further education.  The tutors are given two  weeks of special training to  prepare them. The service is  presented in several different  ways to suit the pupils' indi  vidual schedules. As the programme progresses, records are  kept and the parents are  notified of their child's progress. If this programme is  helping your son, daughter or  friend, change will bc noticed in  all aspects of his everyday life.  If this programme will keep  even one pupil from dropping  out of school, I think we would  all agree that it is worthwhile.

Why should students  of Elphinstone School drop  eggs off the top of the school  building? What has that got to  do with education? On November 9 there were about ten  entries in the "Great Egg  Dropping Contest". But, it  wasn't as simple as it sounds.  There were some limits,  r First and foremost, the egg  could not break when it was  dropped. In order not to, it had  to be placed in a container that  would Drotect it when it hit the  Royal birthdays  by Vvonne Klan  Last week Prince Charles, the present Prince of Wales,  celebrated his thirty first birthday. Did anyone notice?  Regal birthdays were not always greeted with yawns. In 1862, a  previous Prince of Wales celebrated his twenty first birthday. New  Westminster's British Columbia gleefully chronicled the  remarkable proceedings staged by the citizens of its rival city,  Victoria.  "Our friends across the Gulf seem to have a queer sense of  showing their loyalty...  "A Confederate flag is hoisted upon a boot-black's  establishment at 7 a.m. A grand procession composed of a few  firemen, the Lord Mayor, and a member of City Council  accompanied by his Lady takes place.

"This patriotic pugnacity seemed to animate the brute creation  as well, manifesting itself in horses running away, dogs fighting,  etc., etc."  Board inquiry  In an extraordinary move last Thursday night the Sunshine  Coast Regional Board struck a Committee of Inquiry to  investigate the justification for and the proposed location of the  525 kv power line B.C. Hydro intends to build from Cheekye to  Dunsmuir on Vancouver Island.  Several major figures in the power line controversy will be  invited to attend an inquiry to be held in Sechelt on a date to be  agreed on. These include B.C. Hydro Chairman Bob Bonner; the  Honourable Rafe Mair; Mf. Marvin Shaffer who made the report  that was released on the Cheekye-Dunsmuir line last summer;  John Jones, a Forestry Consultant for the Federal Forestry  Department who in a report released this past Spring, said that  there was 200 megawatts of electricity not being utilized in waste  products on Vancouver Island; a representative of the B.C.  Engery Commission; the Honorable James Hewitt, Minister of  Energy; a representative ofB.C. Hydro's Gas Division; and Bayne  Vance of the Pesticide Control Branch.  The Committee of Inquiry will be comprised of Chairman Ed  Nicholson, Director Harry Almond, and Director Joe Harrison.  The idea for the inquiry was the first raised by Chairman Ed  Nicholson under a little used section of the Municipal Act, Section  181, which grants municipalities the right to sub-poena witnesses  for a court of inquiry. The inquiry in this case has not decided to  use the powers of sub-poena, preferring to invite the participants  to attend.  The announcement made by Nicholson reads as follows:  "Under the authority granted us under Section 181 of the  Municipal Act.I hereby appoint a committee of three to convene a  formal inquiry into the justification for the location of the  Cheekey-Dunsmiiir power line."  ground. The container couldn't  be any bigger than 10 cm x 10  cm x 10 cm. You could not use  parachutes on the egg, or foam  rubber in the container.  The purpose of the contest  was to, "design a vehicle that  would protect an egg when  dropped from a height," said  Mr. Smith, Science teacher.  Therefore, students made containers that could absorb high  speed shock.  The winners of the contest  were Mairi Robertson and  Nadine Smethurst, and second  was Doug Raines.  The contest was organized  by Physics teachers, Mr. Paul  Smith and Mr. Gordon Shead.  They want to get more students  interested in Physics by proving  that "Physics can be fun" with  no theoretical equations. Many  more students are getting  interested in the ideas of the  two teachers. Also in the works  are a bridge building contest, a  Grade A egg race and other fun  Physics activities where more  students will get involved  Barry Friesen  Law Office  (formerly Barker & Friesen)  Barry Friesen  Barrister & Solicitor  Notary Public  ��� Uncontested Divorces  ��� Separation Agreements  ��� Marriage Agreements  ��� Conveyances (Land Titles)  ��� Wills  ��� Estates  ��� Incorporations  GIBSONS OFFICE      ��� Phone 886-2277  Sunnycrest Shopping Centre  Office Hours: Saturdays, 9:00 - 3:00  VANCOUVER OFFICE* Phone 683-1515  Suite 519 - 925 West Georgia Street  (opposite Hotel Vancouver)  Office Hours: Monday - Friday 9:00 - 5:00  For Fee Estimate  Warning  The R.C.M.P. remind people  that there have already been  accidents due to black ice on the  highways.

The weekend before last,  Elphinstone travelled to Richmond and started the second  half of the season off against a  chippy Labatts team. Poor  officiating and a lacklustre  effort from the Wanderers saw  Richmond come away with a 4-  2 Victory.  More disappointing was the  5-3 loss suffered by thc locals in  league cup play this weekend.  They played a strong Viluse  team from Vancouver.  Robby Williams opened the  scoring for the locals on a  penalty shot after he was  hauled down inside the 18 yard  box. Vituse then turned the  game around and scored two  goals to take the lead at half  time.  A revitalized Wanderers side  seemed to be on their way to  victory when they scored two  goals in the second half to  regain the lead but a defensive  error saw Vituse tie the game  late in the second half.  Vituse scored two goals in thc  overtime session to emerge as  winners.

An example  Truly great often simple  by Terry Cowderoy  The truly significant people  nl our times are paradoxically  not those whose entrance into  the political and social arena  creates the biggest stir or makes  the  most  noise.  The image  makers whom we hear about  incessantly,   the   politicians,  , presidents,   movie  stars and  ; rock   idols   arc   seldom   the  |' people who have done our lives  ; ihe most good. The truly great  ! people of our age are often  [���satisfied with a simple life and  ! consequently have few of the  1 neuroses   that   seem   to   be  ' inherent  in the lives of the  ; modern person.  ,'    One   such   person   was  , Thomas Merton (1915-1968), a  ', Trappist   monk,   writer  and  poet, who  in  the  rigourous  ', confines  of a  Benedictine  monestary, tucked away in the  ', woodod   hills   of   Kentucky,  1 wrote over 65 books. For 27  '. years Merton wrote on issues  1 lie felt were of great importance  1 to himself and the world. In his  ', writings wc see Ihe work of  I someone who was incredibly  ' flexible in his approach to life,  I yet single minded in the pursuit  ' of what was considered truthful.

Still he was humourously  capable of poking fun at the  invocation to 'be yourself���"In  an age where there is much talk  about being yourself, I reserve  the right to forget about being  myself, since in any case there is  very little chance of my being  anybody else. Rather it seems  to me that when one is too  intent on being himself, he runs  thc risk of impersonating a  shadow."  The true measure of human  stature in Merton was in the  fact of his utter simplicity and  passion for truth. Merton was  noboby's hero. He wanted  neither power nor success.  Rejecting them when offered,  he was not concerned with  sounding his bugle to the world  before every action. In this  Merton was the antithesis of  the egocentric image maker.  Most important he somehow  became what he was meant to  be���human. An increasingly  difficult task in a "social  structure which is outwardly  ordered and respectable and  inwardly ridden by psychopathic obsessions and delusions". Merton's life was and  continues to be an immense gift  to the world���a lesson in  reality. His books are still  published, but you have to look  for them.  Books by Thomas Merton:  New Seeds Of Contemplation  Conjectures Of A Guilty Bystander  Mystics And Zen Masters  Faith And Violence  Thoughts In Solitude  This introduces the series  entitled: A Tale Of Energy  Exploits ��� with subtitle as  seen.  A story is told of a  mythological beast, a many-  headed Hydra which lives in a  deep, dark cave and never sees  the light. Because it never sees  things clearly, each one of the  heads of this many-headed  Hydra speaks that which is not  true. However, because the  Hydra cannot see what it  cannot see, it believes it is  telling the truth. Thus each one  of its heads is mad!  For example, one of the  heads says to another head  nearby that "we care all about  the environment". The other  head replies "profits come first!  Profits come first!" A head  further away says to another  head even further away, "We  will keep all the gold in the  kingdom". The other head,  further away yet, says, "No, we  will sell all our gold to the  neighbouring kingdom, then  we will get more gold!"  One head yells out, "No. I  have seen that report and yes,  you can't have it!" Another  head screams, "Yes, I have not  seen it and there was nothing in  it!"  One can imagine that it was  quite a hellish place, in this  cave.  Sits On The Gold  Now this would be no  problem for the inhabitants of  that mythological kingdom,  except that the Hydra happens  to run the country, on account  of controlling the cave which is  full of gold; justifying its power  by the golden rule: "He who has  the gold, makes the rules!"  Therefore, in order to get  anything and indeed, go  anywhere, the inhabitants have  to deal with the Hydra, a sad  necessity which usually leaves  them sorely perplexed and  often poorer. For example, the  inhabitants wanted to find out  about their future, so they went  to the Hydra and enquired.  One of the bigger heads  announced that in the years to  come there would be nuclear  reactors all over the land. Then  another head declared that that  head really didn't make such a  statement. Another head said  that there would be alternate  forms of energy. But then a  different head avowed that the  Hydra can only use traditional  forms of energy. One head  insisted that alternate is fine as  long as it is conventional.  Amounts To Nought  To find out all this, the  inhabitants had to spend much  time and money, which as you  can see, amounts to nought in  the end.  On top of nought, the Hydra  is collecting more and more  money from the people  through its government taxes,  so that it can build projects  which send energy to the  neighbouring kingdom. Then it  tells the people that since there  is no energy left in the  kingdom, they must give more  money so that the Hydra can  build more projects so they can  have energy, but since they  can't use all this energy it must  go to the other country which  can, which means there isn't  enough energy left, therefore  the Hydra will have to build  more projects and they will  have to pay more money...

But with the debt from new  projects continually added on  to the debt from old ones is  there ever to be the day Vvhen  the Hydra will be out of debt?  Thus the Hydra seems to be  running around and around  chasing its tail, like the famed  Euroborus, another slithery  mythological creature.  This bizarre behaviour on  the part of the Hydra has led  many of the inhabitants to ask  questions about this most  perplexing problem. "Why,"  they ask, "are we paying more  and more for less and less?"  Others ask, "Why is it that the  Hydra, who has all our money  as well as all the gold, is so  heavily in debt?" And some  query, "How come we don't get  a chance to say how we want  our money used?" And some  want to know, "How come all  our energy and resources go to  the neighbouring kingdom and  we're stuck with a bill?"  Enter The Argonauts  Such a high-tension  exploration on the part of the  inhabitants has led them to ask  one central, definitive question.  To wit: "What in tarnation is  going on around here anyway?"  This central question has led  many of the inhabitants to join  together in search of an answer  to this most perplexing  problem. The Argonauts, for  such is the name of these  seekers, are determined to  succeed in their quest. Acting  as "non-official Hydra  Watchdogs, as it were, they  lair and drag it out into the  open, along with its dirty linen.  And while they make their  plans, the Argonauts polish  their mirrors.

November 20, 1979  On becoming a Rover  Ramblings of a Rover  h> Dee Cee  Had thc light up on Number  One hatch between the ship's  Cook and Krastein. the Fruit  Steward, been a paid admission  affair there would have been a  lot of disgruntled tans storming  the box ollice for their money  hack. Il was of such short  duration that ii had no more  -.larled than il was all over.  Mthough there were a few  supporters of Krastein among  Ihe stewards, mosl of ihem  thought that he had ii coming  ui him on account of his  bullying manner inwards ihem  and also because it was well  known lhal. in order lo in-  erallale himsell wilh the Walk-  nit! Dead, he was an informer  or, in their parlance, "a slool  pigeon". Personally I thought  lie had lo he crazy to tangle  .villi the ship's Cook in the firsl  place and I had no doubt of the  outcome. Il was no Marquis of  Queensberry event: there was  no weighing-in ceremony, there  were no rounds and certainly  io gloves. Krasiein was a big  man and must have weighed  around 220 lbs. to the Cook's  180 lbs. so he had a 40 Ib.  advantage bul il did him little  good. We all knew ihat sooner  or later these Iwo would come  lo blows. The reason being Ihat  ihe Iruit Steward made it a  practice io attempt lo palm off  half-rotten Iruit and decaying  vegetables on lo the sailors and  Iheir Cook, being the man he  was. would have none of it and  ihere had been many arguments.  Thc "light", if it could be  described as lhal, took place  .1 round 9:00 p.m. and il was all  over in less lhan ihree minutes.  None of the sailors or firemen  were permitted (ship's . regulations) forward or. for that  matter, any other place but aft  and Iheir place of work so (1  have remembered his first  name) Steve had no supporters  with the exception of one  saloon boy. but hc didn't need  my. Krastein and hc were up  ah the hatch arguing when  someone shouted "let's go" and  the fight was on! I certainly am  not. nor ever was, qualified as a  sports' announcer but as I saw  it they met briefly in thc centre  of the hatch, there was a flurry  of blows, mostly on Krastcin's  part, which never landed, then  suddenly there was a "whoosh"  and thc Fruit Steward was on  his back. Somehow the stewards pried and prodded him  to his feet and pushed him  forward. There was another  exchange of blows, another  "whoosh" and poor Krastein  went clean off the hatch into  Ihe arms of his shipmates and  this time hc stayed there, out  colder than a dead mackerel! I  understood he was "out" for  nearly ten minutes while the  stewards worked over him with  iee water and someone came up  ��� wilh some smelling salts, bul I  wasn't there lo witness it. 1 was  back aft with Steve having a  "victory drink" from a bottle of  Johnnie Walker's Red Label he  produced from his duffel-bag  and which he had been keeping  for just such an occasion.  After this break from monotony, ship life resumed it's  tedium till we reached Mombasa where many of the first-  class passengers were to disembark. A strange incident, at  least as far as I was concerned,  occurred on the morning we  were due to dock. Although I  mentioned tips and tipping in a  former article. I forgot to add  that I was supposed lo get a  percentage of whatever the  Dining Stewards received.  Theoretically gratuities were  pooled and around 591 was  supposed lo be mine. Up to  now I had never received any  nor had I asked for any. It  appeared lo be a degrading  business to me and 1 am still of  the same opinion. Anyway on  this particular morning, as  breakfast was being served,  Higgins, the Head Steward  who waited on the Captain's  table, handed me a white  envelope as he passed me on his  way back to the galley. It  wasn't addressed���simply a  plain envelope���and when I  looked at him enquiringly he  made a motion of his head to  signify it came from none other  than Lord and Lady R. and,  possibly, their gorgeous daughter Maureen. I had already  done a lot of fantasizing about  her. I had, in my imagination,  rescued her when the ship had  caught on fire and burned  everyone else to a crisp except  her and myself, or the ship had  been wrecked and at great  personal risk I had saved her  and she and I were alone on a  desert island. Now, of all  things, a letter from her! I  opened it with shaking hands  hoping to see, written in a  girlish hand, her plans for a  secret assignment with me,  possibly ashore in Mombasa,  but there was nothing of the  kind! Just a card with the  words, "in appreciation of your  services", and a crisp 5 pound  note. For a moment I was  nonplussed and more than a  little embarrassed. I didn't  know whether to keep it and I  certainly had no time to write  her a note declining their  generous gesture.

We didn't go  ' all the way,.iust a few miles, but  wc beached the boat at a small  island. There were many coconut palms growing close to the  beach and lots of mango trees.  We had no trouble gathering  fruit from the latter and they  were delicious, but when we  attempted to climb a coconut  palm and obtain some of thc  nuls it was a horse of another  colour! There were no lower  limbs to hang on to. one simply  had to wrap oneself around the  trunk and shin up inch by  painful inch al a time. I, being  the youngest of thc crowd and,  of course, wanting to show off,  managed to make it up to  where the foliage began but I  sure wasn't up there very long  nor did I get anywhere near the  nuts. I had no sooner reached  thc palm fronds when it was as  if a thousand hot needles were  thrust into my arms, shoulders  and chest. I was so startled and  in such pain I almost let go and  fell to the ground, but instead I  slid down the trunk so abruptly  I burned the inside of my thighs  in doing so, just as if I had slid  down a rope with the same  frantic speed. The needles were  still there when I hit the ground  so I rushed into the river as the  only avenue of escape from  whatever was biting me. It  turned out to be red ants,  armies of them, which had  attacked me as soon as 1  disturbed them in the foliage. I  am certain my friends (?)knew  what was going to happen bin  they had never warned me and,  in fact, were laughing their  heads off at my antics in the  water, trying to rid myself of  these red devils that wereeating  me alive.  That night in my top berth I  was so itchy I couldn't sleep so  my mind strayed first to  thoughts of the 5 pound note I  had been given and how 1 was  going to spend it and then,  naturally, to thc lithe and  lovely Maureen. "In appreciation of your services"���as far  as she was concerned I could  think of only one service I  would have been delighted to  perform, and that had absolutely nothing to do wilh  polishing brasses or glasses! Is  il any wonder with such  lecherous thoughts I have  turned out to be a dirty old  man?  Allergy study  "Current Concepts in Allergies" is the subject of Dr.  Mandl's session on November  24, Saturday, 1-3 p.m. in  Wilson Creek Communitv  Hall.  Dr. Mandl is a well known  Vancouver specialist in all  types of allergies in children as  well as adults. His appointment  book shows clearly what a  sought after authority he is in  his field and his commitment to  this subject makes him travel  many miles in his spare time.  Dr. Mandl knows better than  most people how allergies can  handicap children in their  learning and how adults have  had to choose life styles  according to their nature in  order to function.  Research has been late in  catching up, but many new  discoveries have been made in  recent years, It is not possible  for the layman to catch up on  the new data which are mostly  publicized in medical journals,  but if you or any member of  your family suffer from allergies this lecture with discussion  will doubtless be of value.  Dr. Mandl has suggested  that if you want information  about specific allergies and  problems to relate these to  Continuing Education when  you register.  The fee is $3.00 to be paid on  arrival.  ___,.��- /3H���,  Qlbsons Tot Lol  Fridays, 9:30 -11:30 in the Gibsons United Church Hall.

Hydro was training new linesmen on this tree on  Beach Avenue in Roberts Creek last Friday morning.  Anti-Krcczc Warning  It's thc time of year again  when the old radiator should bc  checked for anti-l'reezc. If you  need a bit of a top up bc very  careful with it. Don't spill any.  According to an article passed  to mc, dogs and cats like the  uste and will happily lap it up.  One teaspoon is enough to  do in thc average cat. while 2'/;  will take all the life out of a  small dog. It takes about live  tablespoons to kill a larger dog,  but even small amounts ingested will cause severe kidney  damage, so take care.  Man's Best friend..lhc Bird?  Two different press cuttings I  read this week seem to indicate  that the bird world is trying to  take over the prestigious  position as man's best friend.  In Sunland, California. Ray  Berwick, the trainer of Fred,  Baretta's cockatoo, claims that  these birds can understand  complete sentences and it  would be possible for them to  act as seeing eye birds for the  blind.  Meanwhile another United  States resident has a mallard  that thinks it's a pointer. When  the man and his duck go  fishing, the duck will soss out  the area then suddenly stopand  point its neck into the water. A  suitable enticement dropped  into the indicated spot never  fails to come up with a fish.  Can you imagine what would  happen to our literature if this  insidious avian plot to take  over thc dog's position in our  society were to bc successful.  For example:  The Beachcomber  It was getting dark and  . Harry hadn't seenalogoversix  feet long, but he stuck duckedly  to it, and duckgone it hc came  up with a nice fir peeler. That  last sentence may sound like  duckerel to the non beachcomber. Hc ducked it and  headed in for some supper.  Absentmindedly, he headed  to the Duckwood, then remembered that it was now  Fitzgerald's and they wouldn't  appreciate his caulk boots, so  he nipped over to the Village  Store for half a dozen hot  ducks. Son ofa duck, he wasn't  as hungry as hc figured, so he  put the remaining ones in a  ducky bag. He'd save them for  later, after he had changed, had  pul on the duck at the local  dunce and would be hungry  again.  lei Lake  I went up for a look at Lei  Lake on Saturday just so that  I'd know what it looks like, if or  when it turns into a fight  between the goodies (us) and  the baddies (them).  Reading through Dr.  Geen's letter, everything  makes sense from his perspective, expecially when I hear on  C.B.C. Radio today that only  2% of the thousands of chemicals on the market have been  thoroughly tested. BUT. If you  look at the Lake from the  opposite hillside, you can see  where Andy Hansen had to  leave a logging buffer because  the Forest Ranger Ray Wilson  felt that it was too important a  wildlife area to bc lost. Is this  just another case of thc left  hand in thc Government not  knowing what the right is  doing?  As mentioned in another  part of the paper, it's probably  going to be about another year  before any actual tampering  with the Lake happens. Let's  not let the passage of time dull  our memories. It appears that  fatigue can set in. An example  of ihis is Hydro ordering their  underwater cable and acquiring the services of two European Companies to oversea  (not a pun) its installation.  If you come across anything  interesting give me a call at 886-  2622 or 886-7817, ta.  Come cry with me gg^  Dear Ann comes to food. Most of North **m**^  Dear Ann,  In my family, when the kids  gct to be old enough to know  thc facts of life, my husband  won'l talk to the hoys. I have lo  do it. I don'i understand why  hc feels so shy. It svould be  better it seems from their  father. What do you think?  Reluctant  Dear Reluctant,  If communication is flowing in  your house, usually there is no  embarrassment over the  intimate things in life. The  children today seem lo be pretty  well informed. Older children  enlighten the younger ones. So  relax and when the subject  comes up, ask them what thev  know. If they need any filling in  you will know. Don't be  surprised if they know more than  you do, but in case there is any  wrong information it will give  you a chance to straighten them  out. It does not matter which  parent fills them in, whoever is  most at case.  Dear Ann,  I'm destroyed by my  inability to lose weight. I hate  being fat. I still like theclothes I  wore when thin, but of course  they look ridiculous. Am I  overlooking something? Why  can't I lose weight?  Dumpling  Dear Dumpling,  I don't think you have  overlooked anything except willpower. It is sure scarce when it  comes to food. Most of North  America is having this trouble,  refined flours and sugars are  partly to blame. Wc can cut what  we eat in half and remove these  offenders, but you have to have a  tight grip on your self-control  and few of us have. We can be  moral, but weak when the pie is  passed. Use a small plate; leave  a little on your plate; eat each  meal but cut the amount in half.  It is slow, but you can succeed.  Your health is important so try.  There seems no short cut. I've  really looked.  Dear Ann,  I had a small accident with  our car, my husband takes his  truck and I have the family car.  I'm so upset and afraid to tell  him even though it's my first  accident. There's not much  noticeable damage to a fender  but the estimate of repairs is  quite substantial. How can I  tell him and why am I so  intimidated by my husband.  Worried  Dear Worried,  Well, everyone's seen these  helpless moments when someone  backs into you or scrapes the car  in the parking lot. The wonder to  me is that there aren't more  bangs and scrapes. So don't feel  too guilty.  On the other hand, this fear  and wanting to hide the accident  looks like a hangover from  childhood���the fear of  punishment and the feeling that  the male person is in control.  Realize you are partners and loss  of a vehicle or money is just as  upsetting to you as to him, but  nomore so. .,�� ���  Relax, share the annoyance,  but don't be totally dwatUted.  Dear Ann, di  I'm not out of school but I  am pregnant and lee) I want to  have the baby. My mother  doesn't want me to .She wants  me to have an abortion. I feel so  mixed up about it. Where, can I  turn for advice nqt so  emotional as my mother's. She  wants mc to finish school and  have a life on my own before I  settle down.  ....Torn  Dear Torn,  This is one of those times in  life when it's all up to yap. There  are agencies to hell* unwed  mothers and programs'through  Human Resources. Explore by  phone and think it put for  yourself. It's too ticklish a  question with long le/m,, lifetime consequences for anyone to  make the decision for you.

V0E 2S0.     #48  our past when thousands of  musicians connected up with at  least a thousand managers,  lawyers, artists and repertoire  people, publishers, editors,  engineers, unions and agents  the "Industry" was born.  Without it musical life as we  know it would cease to  exist. As an obvious example of  this intimate connection  between the music industry and  our musical environment, let's  look at the Beatles.  One of the main reasons the  Beatles have had such an  incredible influence on  contemporary culture is  because they managed to hook  up with the Industry through  Brian Epstein, a record store  owner turned Beatle fanatic  and manager overnight.  Epstein, perhaps to the  disappointment of people who  want to envision the Beatles as  self-determining, took the four  and refined them in his own  image. He changed the way  they dressed, told them the  halls in which they would and  wouldn't play, and through  persistence and determination  eventually landed them a  contract with E.M.I.'s  Parlophone label. The rest is  math, history and lawyers' fees.  The Industry is the reason  that we are so familiar with  today's music. The immense  popularity of even a self-  managed supergroup like  Fleetwood Mac would be  literally impossible without  company support. Without it  Jlmi Hendrix, although an  amazing guitar player, would  never have even made a  footprint in our musical  landscape. Finally, were it not  for Sun Records and the  shrewd promotion of Colonel  Tom Parker as manager, Elvis  Presley himself might still be  driving a truck.  The contemporary music  industry is a 24 hour per day, 7  day a week concern that plays  with over $4 billion every year.  The collosal $2.2 billion that  Americans spent on roci  records and tapes in 1974 was  more than three times as much  as they spent on their nations  pastimes���football, hockey,  basketball and baseball, both  college and professional, added  together.  With this kind of money  floating around it is definitely  safe to call it Big Business. Bob  Dylan's 1974 tour grossed over  $5 million for a mere 40  performances. It remains to be  seen whether his recent  conversion to Christ and  resultant album, Slow Train  Coming, will earn him more or  less money. That may sound  cynical, but the fact is, that  regardless of the depth of his  conversion, if the music  industry can find a way to cash  in on his religious experience, it  will. If it didn't sell, Dylan  would be off the airwaves, I  hope this doesn't concern him.  The Industry sees to it that  we hear the music. The radio  stations pursue us relentlessly,  24 hours a day. Songs are  manufactured by the thousands in the hopes of getting a  "hit", a million seller. There's a  key word for the Industry-  Sales. That's what it's all about.  A big company like Warner  VILLAGE OF GIBSONS  INVITATION TO TENDERS  BUILDING FOR SALE  Sealed submission will be received up to 4:30 p.m.  Wednesday, November 28, 1979 (or the purchase  and removal of a two year old Chimo portable  structure, measuring 10 feet x 40 feet, presently  situated on Block A, District Lot 1314, Plan 5950.  Forms of sale are chase with the successful  tenderer being granted 30 days from date of  aceptance to effect actual removal of the building  from the site.  For further Information, specifications and  viewing of the building, contact the Municipal  Inspector at 886-2274.  The Municipality does not bind itself to accept  any of the tenders and no tender will be accepted by  the Municipality until it has been approved by the  Municipal Council of Qlbsons.  J.W. Copland  Clerk-Treasurer  Village of Gibsons  P.O. Box 340  Qibsons, B.C.  VON 1V0  ��  Brothers wouldn't do all this  work for nothing. There is very  little money advanced to a  group if the company thinks  they have no commercial  potential.  In an intensely vicious cycle,  sales potential is determined by  what is selling. So for very  practical reasons it is easy to see  why pop music sounds more  and more homogenous.  Contemporary music has  become an unhealthy hybrid of  no culturally enlivening  significance. The techniques  and awesome technology used  to create rock are light years  advanced from its raw and  urgent beginnings in the fifties.  Almost any sound one wants to  hear can be manufactured at  will. The companies take this  knowledge and combine it with  the latest chart position and tip  sheet information on what is  selling and literally manufacture supergroups. If a new  band doesn't sound like a hit, it  doesn't get promoted. Or if  they like a band, but it is a little  bit rough around the edges, the  company will help the band out  by hiring professional session  musicians to "fill out" the  sound���if lead guitar solos are  selling, hire one of the best  guitarists around to put the  song over the top. Sadly the  goal for today's recording  industry as a whole is money,  not good music. Admittedly,  sometimes the Industry will  risk a "new" sound and is  overwhelmed when it sells well,  (Dire Straits, Joe Jackson).  Dire Straits won its way into  superstar status in just over 18  months, precisely because it  was fresh, emotional,  committed and different. Of  course, three weeks later they  were old hat after being played  into the ground all day long.  Overkill!,./ -,">'  A few years ago Dr. Thomas  Turicchi, a former professor of  Music Theory, who'also had a  background in Educational  Psychology, conducted a series  of tests on thousands of teenage  people, in which he had them  listen to popular music and  measured their physical  responses on,, a variety of  instruments. After a few  months compiling these  measurements, he began to be  able to predict the physical  responses of those people being  tested. He told a New times  reporter that he could predict  whether or not a given song  would be a hit with 92 per cent,  accuracy.  The music industry got wind  of Turicchi's experiments, and  started sending him pre-  released records to see if the  material was hit quality before  the record reached the radio  stations. In the words of one  company executive, "It's all a  little eerie, but who's going to  argue with success; this guy is  right a lot of the time". But in  fact predictions are a sort of  security blanket. If the word  gets out that Turicci .thinks  such and such a record will be a  hit, then the company feels safe  to release it, and once it's heard  over and over on the radio,  people buy it and it's a hit.  What made it a hit? The Dr.'s  prediction or the repeated  playing?  This attitude towards  musical expression is a sign of  the music industry's lack of  integrity. The Rock ahd Roll  business has become a formula  oriented, hit-making,' excessively profit-oriented  enterprise that spends a lot of  its time orchestrating  excursions into unreality. I like  Rock and Roll. I care about it  as a form of creative  expression, and it hurts me to  see music handled with the  same approach MacDonald's  uses to sell hamburgers���big  volume sales with questionable  nutritive value.

Exams  Continuing Education offers  thc G.E.D. exams twice a year  and an increasing number of  adults sign up. The last two  sessions were attended by  approximately-! 30 men and  women and thb success rate was  high.  Grade 12 Equivalency Exam  -"The General Education  Development Tests are a series  of five comprehensive examination!! in the areas of Writing  Skills (60 mins.); Social Studies, (90 mins.); Science, (90  mins.); Reading Skills, (60  mins.); and Mathematics, (60  mins.). They are designed to  test reasoning ability and logic  rather than facts.  These tests may be taken by  anybody who is at least 19 years  old and has been a resident of  British. Columbia for six  months: Participants must  have been out of school a year  or more.  Many adults who did not  graduate from secondary  school "have acquired skills,  through work, B.T.S.D. or  studyExperiences, at or above  secondary school level. The  G.E.D. tests provide an opportunity for you to earn an  official document stating you  have a Grade XII Secondary  School equivalency standing  which may assist you in  qualifying for better jobs, for  promotions within your own  organizations and in applying  for admission to post-secondary educational institutions.  Some people may wish to take  the tests for personal satisfaction.  The Ministry of Education  cannot guarantee that all  employers will accept the  certificate but experience has  shown that it is widely recognized.  You can take one or more of  the tests again in an alternate  version to raise any of the  scores that were not satisfactory. However, sometimes  your average score for all tests  must be, raised more than you  can di by improving only one  or two tests. If this is the case,  you may have to consider  taking all the tests again.  On the Sechelt Peninsula  98% of those who have taken  the tests, passed and 2% failed  one test which they took later.  Deadline for Application is  November 25, 1979.

Help the Elves to make  Christmas 1979 a Merry one,  not for just a few but for all.  by Ray Skelly, MP  Comox-Powell River  VANCOUVER  Joe Clark and his Conservative government appear intent  on repeating the mistakes of the  Diefenbaker administration,  Ray Skelly, NDP Mp for  Comox-Powell River said  today.  Skelly expressed concern  about the announced sale of  five crown corporations and  emphasized particular concern  over the sale of de Havilland  and Canadair. "Just as we are  getting a firm grip on the  aerospace industry and  becoming recognized internationally as a serious aircraft  design and manufacturing  nation the Conservative  government decides to throw in  the towel. The ghost of  Diefenbaker and the Avro  Arrow looms large."  Skelly says he believes the  two aircraft manufacturers  cannot survive for long backed  only by private investment and  operating independantly in the  international marketplace.  "There are good times and  there ate bad times in the  aerospace industry. When the  bad times come round we can  be sure any private owners will  be back asking governments  for help. It is a terrible waste of  the taxpayers investment to  turn de Havilland and  Canadair over to private  entrepreneurs when there is  such a great potential for the  companies to do really well.  "The Canadian taxpayers  should be told that their  investment is largely  responsible for the present  optimism in the aircraft  industry."  De Havilland was purchased  from the British firm Hawker-  Siddeley in 1974 for $38  million. Assets are now  estimated at $190 million.  Profits for the 1979 fiscal year  were $3.7 million. Employment  has grown since public  investment from 2,800 to 4,600.  And 50 STOL Dash 7 aircraft,  valued at $4.4 million each, are  now on order.  Canadair was purchased  from General Dynamics of the  United States in 1976 for $38  million. Assets are now valued  at $245 million. Profits in 1978  were $3.2 million. Employment  has grown from 1,500 to 5,600.  Revenues   and   profits   are  expected to jump with  deliveries of the Challenger  executive jet. The current order  is for 120 valued at $7 million  each.  "The private sector has  already shown its unwillingness  and inability to invest  profitably in the aerospace  industry. There is nothing to  suggest that private ownership  will not once again result in  market abandonment, cut  backs, loss of jobs, and a  reluctance to pursue research at  a first sign of a fluctuation in  the industry. Certainly more  sooner than later public funds  will once again bc required.  These firms should, therefore,  remain in the hands of the  public and not in the hands of  private, probably foreign,  entrepreneurs who will make a  quick buck and then cut losses  when the going gets rough.  "The sale of de Havilland  and Canadair makes no  economic sense, makes no  sense in the development of  secondary industry in Canada,  and contradicts the long  standing Canadian tradition of  public involvement in the vital  communications and transportation industries. This is a  reckless political adventure  motivated entirely by the  dreamland world of 19th  Century Tory laisse faire  ideology. Its time Joe Clark  and Sinclair Stevens woke up to  the realities of Canada's mixed  economy and the necessity for  the government to act in the  best interests of Canadian jobs,  Canadian science, Canada's  trade position and long term  economic wisdom."  Mr. Skelly will be available  at this VANCOUVER number  this evening; 521-4694, or  contact Steve Lee OTTAWA;  613-995-0840, (home) 613-232-  8029.
