 The Sunshine  Published at Gibsons, B.C.  15$ per copy on news stands  Second Class Mail Registration No. 4702  Serving the Sunshine Coast since 1945  Delivered to every address on the Coast.  March 11, 1980  Volume 34, Number 10  Part of the fun at a clown show is participation. This youngster was kind enough to give Alexander a skipping  lesson during the Saturday performance at Chatelech.  On Lei Lake  SFU scientists present their case  by Ian Corrance  Upwards of 50 people gathered at the Sechelt Rod and  Gun Club on Thursday evening to protest the proposal to  treat Lei Lake with the pesticide Orthene.  Orthene is the chemical  which was to have been used to  combat the spruce budworm  last year. At this time there is  very limited information on the  chemical and it is the intention  of the Simon Fraser University  scientists to apply it to the Lake  and study the results. The  reason they chose Lei Lake is  because of its similarity to  Placid Lake. This is a lake on  the University of British Columbia's land near Haney.  Because of other studies, Placid  Lake cannot be treated. Both  lakes are to be monitored for  differences.  Doctor G.H. Geen, an ,a-  quatic biologist at SFU opened  the meeting by outlining his  reasons for the chetnical application.  To obtain more information  on Orthene, the Habitat Protection Section of the Federal  Government had awarded SFU  a $250,000 grant over three  years. This grant will employ  10 people. The first set of tests  have been conducted in the  SFU laboratories and it is now  time for the field work.  Orthene is different from  other pesticides insofar as it  does not seem to affect non-  target organisms and this, he  explained, was one of the  reasons for a field application.  They had travelled extensively in B.C. looking for two  compatible lakes. The criteria  was that they had to be small  and relatively inaccessible.  Both chosen lakes are five  acres with an average depth of  20 ft. and a small population of  cutthroat trout. Alter the application they will study the lakes  for eight months. Present  studies indicate that the toxicity level of the chemical is  between 1,500 and 3,000 parts  per million (PPM). They will be  applying it to Lei Lake at one  PPM. This would work out to  five pounds for the five acre  lake. At this level Geen does  not expect any mortality in the  fish population.  In 1977 Orthene was seeded  in Hidden Creek near Yale. The  to apply a low concentration in  late summer and study it. He  felt that the work in the lab was  not such that he could determine what would happen in the  field, but it was his feeling that  after a week there would be no  noticable   difference   to   the  V  >*(!  4*  -     4  ���  ���  i  4  it   mw#&t  J'  -     4      ".|  mm i  JkJ*  Dr. Oloffs, the pesticide chemist from Simon Fraser, is  shown here answering questions on his proposal to  use Lei Lake as a testing ground for the chemical  Orthene.  experiment was repeated in the  fall and after an eight hour  application at one PPM, they  found no toxicity in the fish or  the invertebrates. Tests done 1  1/2 miles down the creek  showed very little of the  pesticides as it is water soluble,  and after 24 hours they could  find no trace in the fish.  From this Geen fell that the  three mile run from Lei Lake to  the outlet at a point across from  Nine Mile Point in Sechelt Inlet  would be sufficient to break it  down. What he proposed'was  Lake.  The floor was then open to  anyone with a prepared statement. A local resident, Mrs.  Murray, explained that she was  against chemicals in any form.  Through the unwise use of  supposedly safe chemicals in  1957, her husband had come  down with various illnesses  including ulcers, spinal deterioration and tumors. Three  years after the use of the  chemicals, he died. From her  personal experiences, she advised against the application of  Orthene in any way, shape or  form.  Delegates from the Regional  Board, the wildlife clubs and a  wide cross section of the  population then put many  concerned questions to the  scientists.  Joe Harrison from the Regional Board asked if the  substance was carcinogenic. He  was told by Geen that it was not  a cancer causing substance.  Harrison informed the SFU  doctors present that the Regional Board was against this  and would be fighting it.  Although a permit from the  Department of the Environment was required and there  was room for an appeal after its  issuance, he felt that there  would be very little chance of  the Appeal Board rescinding  the permit, as he felt that those  on the Board had a vested  interest in the furtherance of  chemicals.  When questioned as to why  they had not used interior lakes  for the application since that  was the area infected by the  spruce budworm, Geen answered that it was not within  their budget to set up a camp in  the interior.  One of the questions was,  that since this was a Chevron  product, there must be information on it somewhere.  John Heringmen from the  Habitat Protection Branch of  the Fish and Wildlife Service  answered that there were  studies done by Chevron, but  they were not available from  Canada Agriculture who were  holding them.  Ruth Prefontaine from the  West Coast Environmental  Association read aloud the  warnings on the label of  Orthene. Amongst the warnings were, 'do not use in lake  water' and 'hazardous to  humans'. Doctor Oloffs, a  pesticide chemist at SFU  answered saying that the  chemical companies were not  too concerned about the heavy  warnings that were put on the  labels, people would buv them  For Gibsons Council  Garbage question still an issue  Quite naturally, the main topic of conversation at last  Tuesday's Gibsons Council meeting was garbage.  Five letters were received complaining about the March I  closure.  Alderman Metcalf said that he agreed with the protest letters.  He had seen what happened in a similar situation in Courtney. In  that instance people dumped their garbage anywhere. He added  that the increased distance to the Sechelt dump would make for  higher operating costs to the contractor. If there is anything that  can be done he recommended that it be followed through.  Alderman Trainor pointed out that the situation was not a new  one. "It has been going on for two and a half years," he said. "Now  all of a sudden people wake up to the fact that it is closed."  The same sentiments were voiced by Alderman Labonte. He felt  also that it was a bit late to fight it now. The solution he was in  favour of was an incineration program. He believed that the  garbage company was willing to do this if they could get a contract  with  the  Regional District.  An incinerator would cost  approximately $300,000.  Mayor Goddard as Council's representative on the  Regional Board, was previously requested to ask the  Board to re-examine their  decision to close the dump. She  had studied the Municipal Act  and concluded that such a  request would be out of order.  She will, however, be speaking  to the Board members on an  individual basis.  At his latest meeting of the  Provincial Emergency Program, Alderman Metcalf noted  that there was no provision in  the act whereby the Mayor  could delegate authority. He  recommended that the Sechelt  by-law could be adopted with a  few minor changes. It will be  given to Clerk Jack Copland  for examination and brought  before Council for approval at  a future meeting.  Metcalf also asked that  Finance Chairman Hunter  compile a report on the operating costs of the swimming  pool. Once he had the report he  would look into the possibility  of utilizing the waste heat from  the refrigeration plant in the  Winter Club to partially heat  the pool. The heat from the  plant comes out at 150 degrees  and it may be economic to  reuse it.  In his committee report,  Alderman Labonte requested  that Finance Committee let  him know how much money is  to be allotted to the running of  the airport. He felt that he  would need approximately  $5,000 as Gibsons' contribution. This would pay for  insurance, road grading and  the survey of the six lots  allocated for airport related  industry.  He also reported that the  parking lot on Gower Point  Road should be ready for use  by early April. There was some  concern that the five foot  retaining wall may not be high  enough, but Labonte pointed  out that it had held up through  the recent heavy rains and  should not be a problem.  The proposed Marina in the  Gibsons Harbour is still in  abeyance, but Alderman Trainor informed Council that  Senator Ray Perreault would  be representing them federally  and he would give all assistance  possible.  Wormald Construction  wrote to Council advising them  that they .would be calling for  tenders to demolish the old  pool hall. His client, R.C. Reid,  has plans to construct a five  unit townhouse on the site.  Later in the meeting, Zoning  Amendment By-law 358 gave  first reading to this request.  The by-law also includes the  rezoning of the property behind ihe medical centre fo: a  similar   project,   The   public  hearing for Ihis In law will be  on Monday, March 24 at 7:30  p.m.  Zoning Amendment By-law  357 was given second reading  This concerns the Oianakos  property on Gower Point  Road.  The Sechelt and District  Association for Retarded Children will be constructing an  Achievement Centre at Sea-  mount Park. A sod turning  ceremony is scheduled for  sometime in the middle of  March. The Mayor, or her  delegate has been invited to  officiate.  The Village has initialed a  Vandalism Account. This will  be an ongoing record ol  vandalism within the Village.  Co-op proposed  Competition  proposed  The First Annual General  Meeting ofthe Coast Consumer Co-operative was held in the  Port Mellon Credit Union  Building on Thursday, February 28. On the agenda was the  election of directors for the new  movement towards a consumer  co-operative on the Sunshine  Coast.  The initial organizational  moves came September 19  when six former members of  the Elphinstone Co-op met and  decided to form a 'full food  service, direct-charge co-op'. It  was decided that the new cooperative would be patterned  after the Mid-Island Consumers' Services Co-operative of  Nanaimo. The newly-formed  co-operative will be known as  the Coast Consumers' Cooperative.  It is estimated that 400  pioneer members will he required to 'join an idea, a dream'  for the Coast Consumers' Cooperative to be formed, and a  membership drive is now  underway.  Recently elected as President  of the Coast Consumers' Cooperative is Don Pearsell.  Other officers are Vice-President Rick Gamache, Secretary  Paulette Burgart, and Direct  ors Noel Reid, Beryl Husband,  and Gordon Gannon.  by Carl Chrismas  Mayor Mervyn Boucher has  proposed as Sechelt's 25th  Anniversary Project No. 3 a  contest, open to all residents of  the Sunshine Coast from  school children to senior  citizens, to come up with "A  Slogan For Sechelt".  Vancouver has its "By Land,  Sea and Air, we prosper".  Nanaimo has its "Hub City",  and Victoria its "Bit of Olde  England".  The Mayor is suggesting  something like "Canada's Riviera", or "Rainbow's End" or a  favourite of mine, "Sportsman's Paradise".  Helen Dawe informed the  Mayor that the old Union  Steamship Company had a  slogan for their ships serving  this area; "By North, by West,  by Sun". The Mayor has  transposed this a bit to "North  by West in the Sunlight*. I like  "North by West in the Sun", but  by whatever talent you possess  to express your fancy, it's a  wide open contest with exciting prizes for the winners, with  a 'Certificate of Appreciation'  signed by Mayor Boucher, for  all entrees.  A panel of judges has been  selected by the Mayor and all  have agreed to act in the  capacity. The panel consists of:  Harold Nelson, former Mayor  of Sechelt; Bud Koch, President, Sechelt Chamber of  Commerce; Leif Nelson, President, Sechelt Ratepayers Association; Pat Murphy, President, Royal Canadian Legion;  David Austin, President, Lions  Internation Club.  I've got my thinking cap on  and I'd like one of those prizes!  anyway. This brought some  derisive laughter from the  assembly.  When asked if alternative  testing methods were being  sought, Oloffs answered that  Please turn to Page Thirteen.  Wouldn't you?  Other than the Mayor's  contest, it was a 'business as  usual' kind of a meeting. An  animated discussion as to  whether 'Fairway" was a nautical word or not went on for  several minutes to decide on a  new street name for Ted and  Mona Osborne's subdivision.  Beginning to sound like a nice,  calm water place to live!  I was corrected by Finance  Chairman MacDonald on the  amount of Alderman Hill's  budget. He has $20,000 and  was looking for another 20  grand. Looks like he might get  it too, if Highway Department  approval doesn't come through  on the upgrading of Teredo  Street. Let us hope Alderman  Hall makes the grade. Hackett  Park is in his jurisdiction and  we could spend some bucks  there. Along with his proposed  Trail plan, we could have a  pretty attractive community to  rest our aching bones and  exercise our creaky legs. Keep  busy, Hank!  Timber Days  needs help  by Carl Chrismas  Poor Tim! He's sick with a  fever and may never survive his  8th birthday. A small group of  mourners attended a meeting at  Sechelt Council Chambers on  Thursday night, March 6, to  analyse his prospects of recovery and to collaborate on  medication to cure his ills.  Would a good shot of cascara  bark straighten out his entrails  and get his after burners  working? Or a very large dose  of Wakefield climbin' oil? Or  maybe he's just pinin' away for  a weekend date with Copper  Canyon Sal!  In any case, if wc are going to  bring our old pal Tim Berdays  back to life, something is going  to have to be done might fast.  Somewhere out there is someone with all the answers. Hank  Hall is a great organizer! Can  he take 'er by the face and whip  'er into shape'.' Or Hud Koch!  He's a public spirited citizen  with a lot of people behind him.  Maybe he could shove a lew of  them to the fore!  At last night's meeting, Nel  Jager and Dorothy Goeson  came up with what might be  part of the answer. Our Timber  Days has been loo adult and  child oriented, Not enough  activity has been directed  toward teenagers. This is true,  Our Special Events, for one  reason or another, has been  aimed at the adults. Our dances  have been aimed at the adults.

I nergies which have long been dissipated  due to a lack ol a focal point are now being  focusscd in a very vital way through the  facility ol the new building and those who  planned and struggled to bring it into being  deserve the gratitude and praise of all of us.  So too. do the directors now actively  bringing an excellent variety of cultural  fare among us.  These thoughts, long held, arc moved to  the utterance this week after viewing the  truly remarkable exhibit ofthe paintings of  Pauline l.awson now being shown at the  Arts Centre. It was a coldand rainy Friday  night when we dropped round for this  exhibit and it is absolutely true to say that  one's spirits were immediately lifted on  entry into the building.  Pauline Lawson's exhibit is quite  literally breathtaking and those in the  community who have not yet availed  themselves of the opportunity to visit the  Arts Centre could find no better occasion  for an introduction than this present  exhibit which runs until the end of the  month.  We advise you to go early because we  fully expect that you will want to go again  and again. By all means take the children  with you. It is likely that they will be  absolutely fascinated and delighted with  Ms. Lawson's work.  Again, thanks to the people who made  this exhibition possible, and above all to  the artist. There can never be a time when  the world will have too much of work of  such joyous imagination.  An odour of wrongdoing  An unpleasant odour of wrong-doing is  beginning to hang over the provincial  government of British Columbia. It began  with what the press called The I.ettergate  Affair, a rather trivially seedy little  campaign to write letters to various editors  under forged names, but of late it has been  assuming proportions that are most  disquieting.  Two men have been recently found  guilty of conspiring to bribe cabinet  minister Jim Neilsen, Ugly rumours of  influence peddling begin to seep from the  provincial capital in other areas, and most  recently the man at the head of the  Attorney General's staff, entrusted with  the administration of the Law, has been  accused of using his influence on behalf of  his friends.  One would be tempted to call on Premier  Bill Bennett to take decisive action to  restore credibility and integrity in his  government but, alas, one fears that it  would be a waste of time. Bennett has done  nothing of late to give much credibility to  himself, let alone the government he leads.  With the government settling deeper and  deeper in heavy seas it is perhaps timely to  wonder just how long the opportunistic  and ambitious men who form the Socred  cabinet can be expected to stand loyally  behind a leader so bereft of vision and  common sense, both.  Changes in Victoria could well be on  their w.ay���and possibly before the end of  this year.  Yard Sale success  Wc are pleased to report that the garage  sale held on Saturday on behalf of the three  young Gibsons girls we wrote about last  week who are taking part this year in  Missions International was. in the words of  Kay Owen the organizer, an outstanding  success. Kay was absolutely delighted with  the community support her girls received  and said that the garage sale had realized  its target of $1,000.  There is one item not yet sold���a blue  catamaran. Anyone who has an interest in  purchasing a sailboat should consider this  one. It can be seen in Walt Nygren's yard  by the Post Office in Gibsons.  Heritage project  Some more letters have come in in  support of our suggestion that the  possibility ol acquiring heritage funds to  save the Inglis House should be investigated. In addition, several people spoke to  us last week in support of the idea.  More than vocal support is going to be  needed, however, il the Village Council is  to address itself to the question with some  vigour and haste. Those who believe with  us that the Inglis House is a community  treasure and must, if at all possible, be  saved should let their representatives on  council know their feelings, in writing if at  all possible. It does not seem that the  council itself has any intention of pursuing  the matter unless it is persuaded that there  is some community support.  Make your support count. Make it  public. Make it written. If the fine and  historic old building is to be saved there is  not a moment to be wasted.  |     ...Irom the files ol the COAST NEWS  FIVE YEARS AGO  The School Board is looking at  Indian land behind Si Mary's Hospital  as a possible site lor the secondary  school to be built m Sechelt  Elphinstone Ccigars qualify for the  first tune foi '���" i provincial Senior A  Boys' Basketball finals  Gibsons Council decides to negotiate with the provincial government  for the construction of an ambulance  hall beside the firehall.

The recent copy of the  Klondike Korner, the little  newsheet from Dawson City in  the Yukon, came across my  desk this week bearing sad  news indeed. It tells of passing  of yet another of the gold rush  city's historic old buildings, the  Downtown Hotel, which  burned to the ground on  Sunday, February 24.  Thefe are newer, gaudier  pubs in Dawson City now but  only the New Westminster on  Third Avenue and the Downtown at the corner of Queen  Street and Second Avenue  remained of the old-timers still  active on my last trip to  Dawson in the summer of 1978  and of these two only the  Downtown stayed open in the  siege of a Dawson winter.  In the sixties when I was a  teacher in the Dawson Elementary High School, there were  three pubs to which one could  repair for hot rums and conversation and a brief and blessed  forgetfulness of the encircling  cold and dark. There was the  Occidental, closed by fire  marshall, the Bonanza which  once was call The Pearl and  which also burned to the  ground, and the Downtown.  They all had their charm and  they all have their stories but it  is of the Downtown that we  would speak in tribute to its  passing. A host of memories  crowd forward for attention.  There's Old Pete Brady  coming into the bar there and if  you watch what he's about  you'll catch a glimpse of living  history. Pete's the last oldtimer  who brings gold to the bar.  He's been living up on Hunker  Creek in his little red cabin and  he's in town to raise a little hell  and spend a little money. Yes,  that's gold in the little jar he's  handing over the counter.  Hank Dubois is the bartender  and he'll weigh thegoldand tell  Pete when he's drunk his way  through it. Trust between the  two men is unspoken and  inviolate. You don't see much  of it in the sixites but it was the  Klondike way.  Pete's been in the Klondike  for over 50 years but his Irish  brogue is still pure County  Cork. His hands are the biggest  hands I've ever seen in my life. I  can see one of them now  wrapped around the hand of  my ex-wife Wilma who had just  sung Danny Boy for the old  man. "Count John McCor-  mack couldn't have done  better," he tells her. Still  clutching her hand in his  massive paw he swivels in his  chair. "Hank, bring a drink for  the young lady and young  Burns here." he commands. He  never does learn my name.  There are many memories  Musings  John Burnside  and stories of Old Pete Brady  but the bar of the Downtown is  full of shadows and of memory  and Pete must wait his turn for  fuller consideration.  Look over yonder, there's  another couple of octogenarian  rascals. Otto Lyken and Bert  Barber. Otto mined over on  Sixty Mile. Bert came in with a  travelling vaudeville troupe in  about the year the Downtown  was built, 1905, and somehow  never got away. He's still liable  to sit down at the piano and  belt out a couple of numbers.  Otto and Bert are living in the  Sunset Home and the old  incorrigibles are having a fling.  Watch how Hank the bartender takes care of them. He-  knows better than to tell them  they've got to walk home and  it's sixty below. He draws Otto  aside, sec him do it just now.  He's telling Otto that he thinks  Bert has had enough and  perhaps Otto should see him  home. In a minute he'll pause at  the table where Bert is holding  forth and tell Bert that he  thinks Otto has had enough  and that Bert should keep an  eye on him. Pretty soon, there  they go, a couple of gallant  ageds arm in arm seeing each  other home.  Black Mike Winic is in the  bar tonight, his husky booming  voice with its thick Yugoslavian accent is predominant. It is  the voice of a man who spends  long periods in silence. Black  Mike isn't drinking. He gave  her up at the age ol 95. He's  almost a hundred now,, still  lives in a cabin and still runs a  trap line. He has. the locals tell  you, looked the same as he does  now in the memory of all who  know him. He is reputed to  have reached the Klondike by  walking  across   Siberia.   It's  probably true. His only concession to his years besides his  abstinence is the wire-framed  glasses he wears for reading  and sewing.  These are the best times in  the Downtown Hotel. In the  midst of winter when the last of  the ancients who remember the  gold rush come out and the tall  talcs arc told.  But the summer, too, has its  charms. There was the celebration on June 21 when one ofthe  young Scots geologists working  up the Dempster Highway  brought his pipes to town. The  entire bar was somehow dancing, large Indian ladies, old  miners, and tourists breathless  with excitement and delight.  When the Downtown closed at  1:30 a.m. we all marched in  sunshine over to the Occidental  which was still open, led by our  piper. The police car pulled up  beside the impromptu parade.  "We can't have that noise in the  middle of the night," said the  young officer. The piper  paused a moment in his  exertions. "Officer, have you  received any complaint from  the citizenry?" "No, not yet." "I  think officer." said the piper  gravely, "that until you do  receive a complaint you have  very little to say." And the  piping resumed.  The Downtown Hotel.

Jack  Butterworth poles himself  across Second Avenue on a  piece of floating sidewalk to  have a drink with the  bartender, Eddy Overshoes.

Emily Dickinson  Gas versus  electricity  bv Joe Harrison  Director, SCRD  According to Mr. Art Wilms  of Westcoast Transmission a  natural gas line to Vancouver  Island will displace four million  barrels of oil annually, which  means a saving of $80-100  million yearly in federal subsidy payments. Wilms, who  spoke at the recent Association  of Vancouver Island Municipalities Convention in Campbell River is proposing a line to  Vancouver Island via Powell  River with a spur line to the  Sunshine Coast. Mr. Al Mac-  Pherson, head of the gas  division of B.C. Hydro, presented a competing proposal  for a line from Tsawassen  which seems unlikely to serve  the Sunshine Coast and Powell  River because of added costs of  crossing the Gulf twice.  Wilms indicated that with  record exploration activity in  Northern B.C. there is an  assured 30-40 year supply of  gas. Also Westcoast's facilities  lie on the proposed routes of  the Alaskan and Beaufort Sea  natural gas lines which guarantees secure future gas supplies  for Vancouver Island.  Westcoast's export commitments to the U.S. return over  $1 billion annually to B.C.  Reduction of exports by the  federal government or the  imposition of a federal export  tax would seriously endanger  Westcoast's cash flow position.  This point is not lost by the  B.C. government which uses  natural'gas revenues to finance  local governments. If West-  coast is to continue with its  northern and east coast exploration, the company wants to  improve its domestic markets,  such as the home heating and  industrial markets on Vancouver Island. Otherwise it is  vulnerable to sudden changes  in its sales to the Americans,  which would cut off money for  exploration in Canada.  Wilms indicated that it is in  the national interest to reduce  our dependence on foreign oil  on which the federal government will be soon paying a $21  a barrel subsidy. This can only  be done by using export  revenues and domestic revenues to finance exploration in  the Beaufort Sea and Newfoundland. Also, the continued  export of gas is coming under  increased criticism from all  sectors of the political spectrum which adds to Westcoast's nervousness. All of  which adds up to a giant  confrontation between the  federal government and the  province of B.C. Dr. Andrew  Thompson has recently pointed out that Westcoast Transmission is controlled by the  federal government's Petrocan  while B.C. Hydro is a stepchild  of the B.C. government. Simply, B.C. and the feds are  grabbing for the same money  and markets on Vancouver  Island.  Premier Bill Bennett is  decidedly unenthusiastic about  a gas line to the Island  inasmuch as B.C. Hydro has an  immense surplus of electrical  power going over the damns  which the notorious Cheekye-  Dunsmuir line will soon deliver. Bennett is also reputed to  have made an election commitment to the forest industry  guaranteeing access to cheap  electricity. If Bennett has his  own way the returns from the  home heating market and  industrial users will remain  with the province through B.C.  Hydro's electrical division.  The rub for consumers is that  on Vancouver Island where  people will have to heat  electrically, they will be paying  electricity bills equivalent to  using $60 barrels of oil for  heating. Meanwhile the federal  government will be forced to  continue exporting gas to  finance oil exploration while  paying federal subsidies on  imported oil.  Federal and provincial energy policies are obviously on a  collision course. In Alberta and  B.C. the provincial coffers are  being swelled by export sales of  gas, oil and perhaps electricity,  while the feds shell out billions  in oil subsidies and tax incentives for exploration. There  seems remarkably little sympathy or understanding of the  national interest with these  western provincial governments.  Closer to home here on the  Sunshine Coast this irrational  provincial-federal conflict will  manifest itself in the billion  dollar Cheekye-Dunsmuir line  and the forced reliance on oil  for home heating and industry  rather than cheaper gas. Island  M L As such as Colin Gabbman  of Vancouver Island North  openly acknowledge that the  B.C. government will probably  not allow a gas line because of  the surplus electrical power to  be delivered by the Cheekye-  Dunsmuir line. For us on the  Sunshine Coast there will be no  gas, an unnecessary power line,  and continued reliance on oil as  the result of this conflict where  .veryone loses.  We can only speculate on the  eventual outcome in this nutty  fight between Ottawa and  Victoria. A federal export tax  on gas? No gas line to the  Island? A compromise with  both sides dividing the take?  (And B.C. Hydro granted  permission to export electricity?) What is clear is that  Please turn to Page Twelve. Letters to the Editor  Heritage Conservation is attractive  Coast News, March 11, 1980  Editor:  Your editorial on the heritage possibilities of the Inglis  House reinforces the whole  issue of tourist awareness. One  only needs to visit places such  as Laconor or Port Townsend  or pick up any recent architectural magazine to realize  how current and attractive  heritage preservation can be.  The problem on the Sechelt  Peninsula, as well as other  places, is to understand the  concept.  I believe the brochure you  mention has been distributed  by the Heritage Conservation  Branch throughout the province. It should be noted that  besides its consultative services, it also encourages the  preservation   of   complete  streetscapes as well as individual buildings. The suggestion  from the Ministry of Industry  and Small Business Development to build "old" rather than  "new" is very well taken.  There are still remnants of  charm on the Coast that  suggest such possibilities, Inglis  House being one of them.  There are others in Vancouver,  for instance two apartments  being built in Kitsilano. The  English Sunday Times magazine, in a recent issue illustrated how sensitive and good  design could retain the character of villages, while taking into  account the modern conveniences.  It should also be noted that  we have two Heritage agencies,  on provincial, the other feder-  Browning on humour  Editor:  A few words about humour.  Real fun is when someone very  dignified suffers a slight accident which causes him or her  to lose dignity in the eye ofthe  beholder. Imagine for instance,  a judge of petty sessions  parading at the head of his  coterie of fellow law-butchers,  "clothed in white samite,  mystic, wonderful". On his way  across Parliament Square to  sessions petty or otherwise, he  slips on a banana skin and falls  hard on his bottom. That's  funny for the onlooker, not for  the judge. Especially if he is as  the good Will Shakespeare  described them, "with fair  round belly in good capon  lined".  Then there was the episode  of my good friend Laughton  who undertook to ride a white  mule in the transport section of  our battalion in World War I.  They tripped merrily along but  the mule did not see the  approaching shell hole because  Laughton was pulling his head  around to avoid it. They both  went half ass over tip���a mule  is only a half jackass���and  landed up sitting on their stern  ends on opposite sides of it,  both with the same look of  surprised amazement. Very  undignified for an officer of a  famous regiment which had  fought with distinction at  Waterloo and repulsed again  and again the charges of the  French Cuirassiers.  I read with interest the  editor's soccer triumphs and  disasters and with sympathy his  going head first into a mud  puddle. Ye didna fall in the  mud at Bannock Burrrn, ye  al. Pierre Berton, the head of  Heritage Canada, was recently  out this way promoting "Park  Site 19" in Vancouver's west  end. In this pilot project, it is  hoped to preserve about 13  buildings. (Only one of which,  the Roedde House, is heritage  designated.) Certain trees,  shrubs, gardens, walls, fences  and residences in one existing  block, as a public park.  The Sechelt Peninsula, as we  all know, has great natural  beauty but this can quickly be  eroded away as we can observe  day by day. Concerted action  by its citizens with the offered  assistance of public agencies  such as business, tourism and  heritage, can keep it the park it  needs to be.  Burnell Swartz  spalpeens! Which brings me to  the humour of words. Words  spoken at the right time at the  wrong place, and during the  game of all games, rugby  football.  The scene was Twickenham,  many years ago. France was  playing England al rugby  football. The Royal Box was  down in front close to the touch  line. In it was seated King  George V and Queen Mary. A  pile up occurred where they get  piled on top of each other like  pigs trying to keep warm in an  Alberta winter. There came  from the bottom of the pile a  loud, angry English voice.  "Take your knee off my censored, you bloody Dago". The  good King George laughed  loud and long. The good Queen  Mary was not amused.  John S.

Brent Berry  Associate Director  Use of steam  Editor:  It is a well known thing that  Howard Hughes (among others), years ago had a superb  steam automobile that accelerated from 0 to 80 in five  seconds, ran hundreds of miles  on a tank of water, never  caught fire, did not pollute, was  safe, quiet and comfortable,  lasted almost forever and cost  next to nothing to run. That  was Catch 22. Nobody could  make money with the thing so  we weren't allowed to have it!  So now we are to go to war  fighting over oil we never  needed? No thank you!  Bring back Steamboat Bill,  the choo choo train, steam  trucks, autos and heating.  Let some light cars run  alcohol.  Tell every oil person in every  corner of the globe to stick his  oil in an appropriate place and  God bless America.  M.L. Monolys  Lost clothes  Editor:  On February 23, my 10-year  old son went swimming at the  Gibsons pool and came out to  find that his clothes were gone.  He had to come home in a wet  swimsuit.  I realize they have lockers at  the pool but it's getting pretty  bad when you have to lock up  children's clothing. I would  sure like to know who would be  so mean or desperate to do  something like this. If it was  another child who did this,  would the parents notice these  clothes in their home?  Ann Duffy  Radio  listening  Editor:  I agree entirely with Mary-  anne's Viewpoint. In seven  days, the CBC will not change  the way I listen to radio, and I  write as part of a televisionless  minority for whom radio is a  primary medium of communication.  When the CBC either ceases  to be condescending to their  audiences as a whole or chooses  to extend the choice between  AM and FM listening to their  entire audience, I may begin to  change the way I listen to radio.

Coast News, March 11, 1980  The Wastrels of Cinnamon River  Part III  We lose little time ir* exer-  cising this new found mobility.  The following Friday, Al,  Jerry, a couple of other young  ne'erdowells and myself, make  our maiden run to Squaw  1 anding. The place is more like  some Western cowtown than a  coastal settlement with false  fronted buildings and railyards  clustering the flat valley mouth.  Wc abuse the privileges of its  bars to the total detriment of  .in sobriety, solicit young girls  wilh no success and end up  passed out in some rattletrap  hotel room. It is a rather  lacklustre debauch as debauches go. The next alternoon.  seeing little future in hanging  around, we pick up a cargo of  hooch and head back to  ( innamon River.  Since Ihere are no spaces left  at Ihe regular dock, I have been  obliged to moor my boat at the  booming grounds on the opposite side of the mill. We tie  up. collect our liquor and set  out drunkenly across a short  hut treacherous stretch of  loosely bagged logs to the shore  bound floats. Spud Island Jerry  starts out manfully with a  bottle of rum clutched in either  hand. Suddenly there's a  startled shout and a splash.  Down he goes in a narrow  patch of water between two  skittish hemlocks. "Jesus!"says  Al in alarm," he told me he  can't swim."  Wc set down our booze and  Pages from a Life-Log  Peter Trower  Sunco  Printing  FOR ALL YOUR  PRINTING NEEDS  886-7614  head back for the spot where  he's disappeared. Jerry surfaces like an unwilling seal,  splutters, gasps, gives an agog  look around and goes down  again. Shortly, his head e-  mergcs once more and we make  a vain attempt to grab him but  he doesn't extend his hands.  "That crazy bastard!" 1 marvel,  "he won't let go of that  goddamn rum!" Back he sinks  into the black water.  This time is his third and  there is no more margin fo,  fooling around. When becomes into view, someone  manages to grab the collar of  his jacket. By main force we  wrestle him to safety, almost  dunking ourselves in the process. Incredibly, he is still  holding in a steel-grip, the two  bottles of rum. "Thanks, byes,"  he says when he gets his breath  back. "I didn't want to sec this  good screech goin' to waste!" A  dedicated boozer if there ever  was one. We sit down right  there on the stiff-leg and drink  a toast of the rescued liquor to  his fortitude.  Despite the boat and the mad  new avenues it opens, I still  have hopeless eyes for Annie  Mclntyre. She slinks like a  seductive succubus through my  fantasies. I continue to date  eligible Sylvia whenever I'm  sober enough but it's a surrogate situation that bothers  my conscience. It wouldn't be  so bad if I never saw Annie but  we're constantly colliding.  Occasionally she comes into  the Legion with her husband  Gibsons Public  library  Tuesday  2-4p.m.  Wednesday  2-4p.m.  Thursday 2-4 & 7-9pm.  Saturday 2-4 p.m.  886-2130  and we grin at each other across  impossible gaps. Once, 1 meet  her by chance in the local park  with her daughter. We sit  together under a tree and  whatever mutual attraction we  share, throbs like a pulse  beneath the easy talk. I suppose I'm half in love with her  but who has the nerve to upset  the applecart in this drunken  yet circumspect town? It's a  sort of Mexican standoff. Then  Pat Orban hits Cinnamon  River and diverts my attention  for a bit.  Orban's a biker, one of the  first of his breed, a Brando-  clone in a black leather jacket  who has obviously seen The  Wild One too many times. He  stalks into Cinnamon River  like some lone gunslinger with  a Harley Davidson chopper  instead of a horse. His cocky  Irish face looks vaguely familiar. I can recall seeing him  hanging around street corners  with the Broadway and Main  gang in the heyday of the  zoot suit craze, several years  back. Now, in common with a  number of other post-graduate  alley punks, Orban has found  himself a whole new outlaw  identity. He makes his presence  known almost immediately by  tooling his bike around the few  miles of road, a practice that  will not endear him to many of  the townsfolk. But there is  nothing illegal about it as long  as he doesn't damage property  or run over any kids.  Pat Orban becomes the  newest member of our not  exactly overworked crew. Despite his tough appearance, he  seems easy to get along with.  "Hell,  this  is  better  than  ��  SUNSHINE  KITCHENS  FINE CABINETS  886-9411 Gibsons  stealing and a damn sight  safer," he says. We discuss the  zoot suit times and some ofthe  hoodlums we know in common. I would have pegged him  for an East End kid but he turns  out to be the black sheep son of  a wealthy lumbering family.  One night, he invites Al, Jerry  and myself to his room for a  beer. He's decorated one wall  with his extensive knife collection, every sort of hand  blade imaginable from a Scots  dirk to a World War II  bayonet. He's even got a curved  and murderous looking Malay  kris. "I just dig shivs, man," he  says matter-of-factly. Hoping  he doesn't also dig using them,  we resolve to stay on the right  side of Pat Orban.  Our stint on the Cinnamon  River yard crew is not entirely  an easy money sleigh ride.  Periodically, we are called  upon to do some actual work.  One such task is cleaning the  steam plant furnace and rattling its miles of tubes with  pneumatic agitators on air  hoses. This is an onerous chore,  dusty, noisy and rough on  hangovers but it is nothing  compared with my traumatic  introduction to the business of  strapping rolls.  Generally in a pulp mill, the  final product is wrapped and  baled in roughly square bundles. For certain, special orders  however, a different method is  employed. The main cylinder  of pulp is sawn into four  smaller segments like rounds of  cheese to be strapped and  shipped. I have considerable  experience with the former  system and anticipate small  trouble with the latter when I  am called upon to relieve a  regular man for three graveyard shifts. I am scheduled to  punch in at Saturday midnight  and am so foolishly sure of  myself that I spend all evening  at the Legion, taking on a load  of brew with Al, Jerry and Pat  Orban. I will soon regret this  immoderate behaviour.  To be continued.

For a change  of pace, the show alternated between snakes and black  widow spiders.  Poetry reading  On March 14, 8:00 p.m. at  the Sunshine Coast Arts Centre, in the second evening of  The Poetry and Prose Series,  Daphne Marlatt will read her  writing. This event is co-  sponsored by the Sunshine  Coast Arts Council, and the  Canada Council.  Daphne Marlatt was born in  Australia in 1942. She immigrated from Malaysia to Vancouver in 1951. Well known in  Canada and the United States  as a poet, Daphne Marlatt's  works have included leaf,  leaf/s, Rings and Vancouver  Poems. In 1974, Daphne published the poem sequence  Steveston based on the lives of  the Japanese people in the  fishing community of Steveston, B.C. and during the  following year, a documentary  work on the same region titled  Steveston, Recollected, which  incorporated interviews, archival material, and prose portraits. Steveston has been  recently re-issued in The Long  Poem Anthology, edited by  Michael Ondaatje (Toronto:  Coach House Press, 1979).  During 1977, Daphne Marlatt  published her first complete  book of prose, Zocalo, a  narrative about a trip to the  Yucatan. In its fine blend of  novelistic techniques, personal  journal, and travel book we see  her poetic strengths of exact  and complex evocations of  place and voice. During 1975,  Daphne Marlatt published Our  Lives, (North Carolina, Truck  Press), a little book which  opens with the statement that  the five poems making up the  book constitute 'the musical  score of the initiation of the  psyche into winter'. In Jack  Silver's words, "The five poems  indeed suggest the movements  of a work of music. While self-  contained, they share common  themes, and certain significant  recurring terms, the effect  being the suggestion of an overall unity. The poetic line is  contrapuntal, weaving together  various motifs. As well, (he  poems evoke contrasting  moods, swiftly modulating  from the lyrical to the staccato.  Such a structure demands more  than a strictly linear approach.  One must attend to the sense of  a whole which emerges from  the accumulation of resonances."  A recent work, Opening  Doors: Vancouver's East End,  looks at the story of immigration and assimilation in  Vancouver's Strathcona neighbourhood (now residential  Chinatown, formerly "Little  Italy"). Daphne and Carole  Itter, both East End residents,  tape recorded reminiscences of  a small group of people who  represent the various backgrounds ofthe residents in this  area, and the transcripts of  these 60 interviews can be  found in Volume VIII, Nos. 1 &  2 of the Province of British  Columbia's Aural History  Program publication Sound  Heritage.  During her life, Daphne  Marlatt has attended university in Vancouver and Indiana,  and worked as a cashier, clerk,  waitress, and secretary. She has  taught English at various  community colleges in California and Vancouver, and  worked as poetry editor for The  Capilano Review 1973-1976.  She continues to live in Vancouver, and edits the prose  magazine Periodics with Paul  de Barros.  Come to the Arts Centre  Friday, and hear this fine West  Coast writer reveal her craft.  All are welcome, and the  admission is free.  tt-n-n-fti  :��=*=  -trinr-irinr  VANS PINTO BOBCAT GRANADA MONARCH  Introducing to the Sunshine Coast  Audrey's Coffee seruice  For  Office & Restaurant Coffee  & Equipment  NOW  Available Locally  885-3716  Distributor For Goodhost Coffee  3BBS  _q ii q ��� n H  ata  by Rae Ellingham  General Notes: This week's  astrological picture looks confusing and depressing. The Sun  and New Moon oppose restrictive Saturn and square deceptive Neptune. For some of us the  next few days cculd be the  gloomiest of 1980. It's definitely not the week to sign  agreements or start new ventures. Best advice is to stick to  old and safe routines.  Babies born at this time will  need much extra love and  understanding. Constant  praise and reassurance will help  build positive self-image.  Those of you born March II-  14, June 12-15, September 14-  17 and December 13-16 must  try to accept present delays and  disorder with continued calm  and patience.  ARIES (March 21-April 19)  Accent is on being alone to  face the truth. Use seclusion to  re-evaluate life philosophy,  inner feelings, hunche's and  insights. Realize sense of loss is  only temporary. Hospitals,  institutions, other people in  confinement figure strongly.  Surprise package should have  arrived by now. Money luck is  still strong.  TAURUS (April 20-May 20)  Long range plan may suffer  through financial setback.  Looks like companion will be  forced to say no to shared  venture. Postpone meetings  linked to loans, insurance,  taxes, alimony or joint account.  Although personal popularity  increases, opportunities for  whooping it up fizzle out.  Venus still in your sign encourages improvement of appearance and image.  GEMINI (May 21-June 21)  Looks like you're worried  over career, chances of promotion or future responsibilities.  You may have to accept heavier  load whether you're ready or  not. Don't allow slow rate of  personal advancement to  squelch domestic good times.  Reassure loved one that delays  are only temporary. Best tonic  is still a few days of peace and  quiet alone.  CANCER (June 22-July 22)  Saturn says you'll have to be  more realistic concerning long  distance matter or dealings  with person faraway. Letter or  phone call nudges your sense of  responsibility. It's the wrong  time to launch new educational  pursuit. Instructors and teachers now appreciate conservative approach so forget slick  presentation. New acquaintance is still waiting for your  first move.  LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)  Involvement with other people's money, possessions or  feelings is present source of  worry. Postpone committment  to shared financial responsibility entailing long term debt.  Mars re-enters your sign for  eight weeks reminding you to  finish that project abandoned  last September. You're still the  favourite with persons in  authority.  VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)  Relations with close associates, partner or mate are-  depressing and it's all your  fault. Others find you spiritless,  dreary company. Your moping around the home irritates  everyone. It's the wrong time to  make agreements or sign  contracts. If cranky mood  continues, postpone interview  or meeting.

All Products & Workmanship  CONDITIONALLY GUARANTEED  Ken DeVries & Son Ltd. mim  Off the shelf  by John Moore  If you enjoy the fictional  exploits of Master Detectives,  but you've worn out your  Collected Adventures of Sherlock Holmes pursuing the deerstalker hat through the murky  London fogs; if the pages of  your treasured Raym'ond  Chandler paperbacks are as  yellowed and grimy as the  streets of Philip Marlowe's Los  Angeles, you'll likely find the  change of time and locale as  refreshing as I did in the eight  Chinese detective stories that  comprise Judge Dec at Work,  by Robert van Gulik. (Charles  Scribner's Sons. 1967.)  Though the author is European, these talcs are set in  ancient China, during the  T'ang Dynasty of the eighth  and ninth centuries A.D., when  the Empire enjoyed one of its  finest political and cultural  flowerings. Each one reflects  some aspect of the author's  personal and scholarly knowledge of the Orient; van Gulik  has translated a thirteenth  century manual of Chinese  jurisprudence and crime detection and freely admits that  this work actually suggested  several of his stories.  Judge Dee is a magistrate; a  member of the Imperial bureaucracy, appointed for 3 or 4  year terms to specific districts  ofthe far-flung Empire. Within  his district, the Magistrate is  the supreme civilian authority;  with the assistance of his senior  police officers, he personally  investigates and passes judgement on the cases which come  before him. Like any bureaucrat, his time is largely occupied with the routine tedium of  paper-shuffling, but the tales  naturally locus on the more  dramatic human events, specifically the murders, which  require his attention. One tale,  "The Red Tape Murder", points  out just how important the  endless paperwork can be,  however; one of the vital clues  in the case consists of a slight  irregularity   in   the   Judge's  otherwise meticulous files.  To connoisseurs of the  "second-guess the detective"  school of mysteries, the plots of  these stories offer little real  challenge. They're formula  stuff, the key clues planted in  the narrative well before the  solution, confusion introduced  by hidden motives, red-herrings and frame-ups, but  experienced crime buffs will  easily discover the true criminal  while the wily judge is still  stroking his beard and pondering over a cup of scented  tea,  Still, the charm of these  stories, like all great mystery  writing, lies less in the solution  of a puzzle than in the manner  of arriving at it. It is our  glimpses into the life of the  characters; the rich merchants,  great generals and common  soldiers, courtesans and beggars, itinerant actors and  acrobats, street pedlars and  fishermen, poets and pawnbrokers, as well as the Judge,  his household, and his assistants, Sergeant Hoong, Ma  Joong, and Chiao Tai that  make these tales so enjoyable.  We see Judge Dee at work  and at rest; relaxing in a hot  bath one moment and riding  through driving rain to the  scene of the crime in the next,  walking through a snow storm  to intercede for the life of one  soldier on the eve of a battle  that will cost the lives of  thousands, thoughtfully perusing the library of an almost  illiterate pawnbroker who had  a passion for poetry, or ruminating about taking a third  wife under his roof.  The ease with which Judge  Dee becomes real for us owes  something, perhaps, to the fact  that he is real. Born in 630  A.D., at the beginning of the  T'ang Dynasty, Judge Dee Jen-  djieh lived for 70 years, rising  through the Imperial civil  service to become a Minister of  State,  in which position he  Concert moving  by Susan Elek  It's funny that one can be  tremendously moved in an  audience of 16 people by a  young woman 21 years of age  in a fully lit school cafeteria,  playing on a considerably less  than perfect piano in a little  village by the nameofGibsons,  B.C. But itcertainly happened  on a  recent Saturday night.  It's hard for me not to write  bitterly about the disgraceful  lack of interest by my students,  friends, and the community.  However, that said, I'll get on  with the concert.  Carla Dodek, a 4th year  performance student at the  University of Victoria, student  of Robin Wood, began her  programme with Bach's Italian  Concerto. Although one detected some unease in some of  the faster passages, particularly  in the left hand, the tempos  were comfortable, the style was  sure. There was effective  contrast between the brilliant  quick outer two movements  and the middle cantabile movement which was most thoughtfully played and displayed  good tonal control.  The Haydn Variations in  F minor displayed Carla's  surely in both the quick  running llaydnesque figures  and the slow quiet sections  which had a certain captivating  beauty of tone. Oik had the  feeling in this piece especially  that every note was carefully  planned which this listener  found both a pleasure and a  .jtMAjW  hindrance. The two Faure  pieces, the Nocturne in D flat,  and the Impromptu in A fiat  were new to me, and likely to  most of the audience. These  pieces were again nicely controlled in colour, sometimes  shimmering quietly, sometimes  singing in a broad manner,  both played most effectively.  The biggest surprise of the  evening was the Variations for  Piano by Jacques Hetu, a  Canadian composer who is still  alive. Apart from a few insecure passages here, the playing  was convincing.  Carla finished with the  Chopin Nocturne op. 27 # 2  and the Scherzo no. 3 in C  sharp minor. I felt that the  Scherzo was lacking in the  great breadth it needs in the  chordal sections, but the  descending cascading figures  were nicely controlled.  I've left the Nocturne for last  because it was here that Carla  most moved the listener. Her  sound was ethereal, her statement, touching. In this work,  especially, and in the rest ofthe  programme, Carla displayed  more than pianism and left this  listener with the feeling of  enrichment I always feel after a  satisfying concert.  At Art Centre  Exhibit a celebration  Coast News, March 11, 1980  wielded considerable influence  on both internal and foreign  affairs. He was famous for the  wisdom of his counsel as a  Minister, but is remembered  now for his skill in the investigation of crimes, acquired and  proved during his long service  as a district magistrate. The  Chinese still regard him as their  Master Detective with the same  enthusiasm we express for the  fictional Sherlock Holmes.  Though the plots of van  Gulik's talcs of Judge Dee are  fictional, he succeeds in creating a memorable and sympa-  theticdetective who, even in the  course of a few talcs joins the  ranks of the incomparable  Holmes, Philip Marlowe, Sam  Spade, Inspector Maigrct and  Mrs. Marples. Since 1959,  Robert van Gulik has published a number of collections  of stories which comprise a  nearly complete fictional  chronicle ofthe career of Judge  Dee. I believe most of them are  available from Scribner's.  ($1.95 to $2.50.) They might  wear a bit thin read one right  after another, but with careful  rationing the cases of Judge  Dee could provide years of  reading pleasure  by Joan Huestis Foster  In viewing Pauline Lawson's  colour blitz-krieg currently on  exhibit in Sechelt, one can only  gasp at the amazing changes  that have been brought about  by the creation ofthe Sunshine  Coast Art Centre. In one year  we have moved from shiney  little frogs that hold soap pads  and postcard painting straight  across the board into original  art and imagination unlimited.  When you consider that most  of the artists have been here all  along but have remained in  hiding until our attitudes  changed and we rolled into the  twentieth century along with  the rest of the world, the reality  becomes even more exciting.  With, the exception of its  opening show this little gallery  has abandoned deja vue completely and has moved ahead to  explore the real dimensions of  our coastal art scene.  Pauline Lawson's Journeys  are completely unselfconscious  and ingenuous forays into her  very own Arabian Nights. Her  jewel colours combine dangerous Thalo greens and blues  with impossible oranges, pinks,  gilt and brooding purples (all  school taboos), and her  W  personal magic makes everything crazy absolutely sing. Her  ships belong to Sinbad and his  voyages have become hers. Her  paintings are large and complicated and they truly defy  description. I'll try for a word  painting in the hope of luring  you and your children into  Sechelt to view this marvellous  exploration in the madcap  world of imagination.  Pauline Lawson's ships are  swooping and often berib-  boned, one with a glacier  slipping off its bow. Her waves  are colourful, curling every  which way often right into a tea  tray. There are little ships  within bigger ships and happy  little messages on curling (lags.  Mottos sneak into trees which  spill into mad, moon-shaped  skies. Omar Khayyam leaps  out on scrolls and combines  with exotic gardens and staircases that go everywhere. A  food platter slips off an  enormous piece of cheese.  Crimson trees wend their way  into tipped caves. Philoden-  drons blend into tea cups and  flowing patterned tissue.  Chains that don't connect  compete with chains that do.  Little tea parties contain  themselves and become indi  vidual islands of tiny charm  within larger islands of sheer  exuberance.  Pauline Lawson's imagination has no boundaries and no  horizon. Her work simply soars  and it is my fondest hope that it  will continue to do so for many  years to come. Let's hope that  the Coast remains her home  base.

Coast News, March 11, 1980  More harbingers  Maryanne's viewpoint  In Maryanne West  A nice thing about March,  aside from crocuses and snowdrops, periwinkles and daffodils, is the lengthening  afternoons.  It's nice, once again, to be  able to check the weather  station in the daylight, no more  wandering out in Ihe dark with  ,i flashlight at 6 o'clock until  November.  It will soon be possible to go  lor a walk after supper���an  evening walk along the beach  with the long rays ofthe setting  miii dancing over the water, a  .parkling ribbon of gold, while  [he Iree-elolhed escarpment  absorbs the benison of warmth,  is another world altogether  irom the beach in the morning.  Ihe westering sun bathes the  maples in golden hghl focusing  one's attention on the graceful  contours of the branches and  Ihe trim, pinstriped, tight-  lilimg bark. The buds are  swelling visibly, just beginning  to show the beautiful pinky red  satin bracts which have shielded the embryonic leaves and  (lowers all winter. It's only a  couple of weeks until the  humming birds are due back  Irom iheir southern sojourn  and they'll be hungry if the  maple flowers, oozing sweet  nectar are not in blossom.  Another staple for returning  humming birds, the red (lowering currant, is a little further  advanced, the flower panicles,  though still tightly closed have  keeled over and are hanging  Irom the red winter buds.  The first crimson flowers  burgeon on the salmonberry. I  wonder why one patch always  sports the first flowers while  other bushes nearby appear  lifeless. Maybe its something in  the soil, or perhaps even the  shade of bare winter branches  makes a difference to growth  patterns; yet another similarly  exposed thicket of canesa short  distance away only shows  greening leal buds with no sign  of flowers.  Emerald bunches of leaves  adorn the elderberry,marching  two hy two along the branches,  yellow pollen from the alder  catkins drifts in the air, the tiny  conelike female flowers hang  waiting to receive it and the  maroon winter buds are greening at the tip. An errant beam  of sunlight slides between the  trees spotlighting the lemon  yellow lanterns and pale green  leaves of the skunk cabbage in  the dark black soil of a wet  hollow. In the evening cool,  only the beauty takes your  breath away, the unpleasant  odour of rotting meat at high  noon which successfully attracts flies to pollinate the  flowers is forgotten.  Seagulls fly westwards, singly, quietly homing in to rocky  islet roosts. Winging their tired  way from who knows what  adventures for which they set  out so blithely in morning  gaggles, stitching white patterns across the blue sky.  There are no eagles in the  evening, sitting quietly, still  and watchful on the overhanging alder branches; patiently waiting for the flotillas  of scoter and scaup to grow  accustomed to their dark,  motionless silhouette and forget about it. Only some tufts on  leathers adhering to a log, a  soft white fringed with black,  stirring in the breeze are left, a  reminder of the mornings  successful sortie by a young  eagle. Whether he was allowed  to cat his catch though is  doubtful, he was set upon by a  posse of five other eagles, two  of them adults all so eager to  share in the kill that the young  ones were fighting among  themselves.  A lone cormorant stands on  a rock facing the west. The light  catches a hint of red around the  beak a distinguishing mark of  the pelagic cormorant, illustrated in bird books but usually  difficult to see.  There the shoreline swings  north-east into Howe Sound,  the beach is in shadow, but the  sunlight filters through the  leafless crowns of the maples,  keeping one conscious always  of the sky, until with a  suddenness which is breathtaking, although you've seen it  countless times before, you  round a venerable, sea-polished stump to gaze again upon  an incomparable panorama.  A curving sweep of tree  fringe shore with waves curling  up the beach, a rocky promontory atop which grows a  cluster of pointed firs, leading  your eyes upwards past the  backdrop of forested island to  the western dog-tooth peak of  the Lions and its accompanying crests���snow-covered,  gleaming in the sunlight,  pristine and ethereal.  You turn reluctantly for  home, thinking, if only mankind reflected his environment, what wonderful people  we all should be!  Labour of love  by Beth Shaw  Midwifery ls...a labour of love  was the title of a conference  held this past weekend at the  Sharaton Landmark Hotel in  Vancouver. Sponsored by a  consumer-based group,  M.H.S. (Maternal Health Society) and by C.A.L.M. (Campaign Association for the  Legalization of Midwifery),  this conference featured a panel  of International speakers and  the participation of representatives from the B.C. Medical  Association and the Registered  Nurses' Associciationof B.C. as  well as parents, health administrators, social workers, lawyers, economists, politicians,  and midwives.  Both the medical and nursing professions in B.C. arc  currently considering a system  of nurse-midwifery in B.C.  Saturday afternoon's session  included the presentation of  position papers from both of  these professions and the  presentation of a legislation  proposal from a group of  women in Victoria, the Victoria  Society for Alternatives in  Childbirth. Should midwifery  be legalized in B.C., the  precedent established will  affect every childbearing woman in Canada.  Of 210 countries, only 9 have  no provision for midwifery in  the health care system. Mid-  wives in most ofthe world take  time to provide excellence in  preventive health care and  instruction, to maximize the  joy of birth and protect its  natural processes, to preserve  parental self-esteem and control, to sit patiently through  labour in continuous emotional support���this is wliy  midwifery is a labour of love.  If you are interested in this  issue from a consumer viewpoint, you might like to  subscribe to the Maternal  Health News, published by the  MHS about current issues in  maternal/child health care.

Some recent films reviewed  by Allan J. Crane  La Cage Aux Folles, which  completed a three day run on  last February 26 at the Twilight  Theatre, is a situation comedy  of the highest order. I have to  think back to such films as  [.'Invitation, King of Hearts and  The Ruling Class for the  enjoyment of the order provided by La Cage Aux Folles,  drawing the sort of laughter  which almost hurts. (The other  three films were shown in the  Twilight Theatre by the moribund Kwahtahmoss Film Society.) An earlier Franco-Italian  film by this director, Eduard  Molinaro (L'Emmerdeur -  "Pain in the Ass") was shown by  the Film Society before its  release in Vancouver.  La Cage Aux Folles had a  long engagement at the Fine  Arts Cinema on Georgia Street  and it is scheduled to play at the  Ridge Theatre in Vancouver  (I6th and Arbutus) on March  21-23 starting at 7:30 p.m. If  you missed this film at the  Twilight Theatre, make sure  you see it at the Ridge. It will be  worth the journey, but remember it was at the Twilight  Theatre first LaCage Aux Folles  will be one of the films  marketed by The Ridge with  their money back guarantee:  "We  guarantee  your money  back if you do not enjoy this  movie."  The owner of the night club  La Cage Aux Folles and the  transvestite entertainer with  whom he lives are about to be  given a surprise party to  celebrate their 20th Anniversary. The night club owner had  once spent about two hours in a  heterosexual situation, and the  son had been brought up by his  father and his "auntie". Now  the son wishes to marry the  daughter of the president of a  Commission on Moral Order.  The couple's attempts to  structure a new image to help  the young lovers is the stage for  the film's hilarious send-up.  Ugo Tognazzi and Michel  Serrault (French Academy  Award Best Actor), dominate  this excellent farce with comic  performances second to none,  in an outrageously funny film.  Mention should be made ofthe  splendid actor who played the  part of Jacob, the maid. This  film is distributed by United  Artists and may well already be  available in 16 mm format. It is  eminently suitable for film  society programmes, and further details may be obtained  from Tom Lightburn, United  Artists' Vancouver Manager.

There  was some apprehension over  showing a Cinemascope film,  but I have not yet had a report  from them. They should certainly book La Cage Aux Folles  as soon as possible.  1 also saw "10" at the  Twilight Theatre this week. I  think Dudley Moore who  starred in the film, is one ofthe  funniest men of recent times,  but his talents were not used to  very good advantage in Blake  Edwards' script for this film  about a song writer who gets a  fixation for a young lady (Bo  Derek) on her way to her  wedding. "Eleven", George  Webber (Dudley Moore) replies in response to his psychiatrist's asking for a rating on  a scale of one to ten for Jane  (Bo Derek). 1 would not have  rated the film higher than four  or five out of ten.  I might be tempted to  respond "eleven" in response to  a similar question about La  Cage Aux Folles. Certainly, I  would be hard pressed to rate it  lower than ten. By contrast,  "10" was often tedious, and the  pace dragged. It drew audiences much larger than did La  Cage Aux Folles because of all  the foo faraw surrounding Bo  Derek.  I was much more interested  in Dudley Moore, an immensely talented performer as  anyone will acknowledge who  knows him in the B.B.C.'s That  Was The Week That Was in the  early sixties usually in company  with Peter Cooke or from  Beyond The Fringe. Seeing him  in "10" only made me wish that  he could work again in collaboration with Peter Cooke to  produce something of the  calibre of Bedazzled, the hilarious spoof of the Faust  legend which was written by the  NOT ONLY BUT ALSO team  of Peter Cooke and Dudley  Moore.

While the increases average 7 per cent for residential  and general customers the rate changes will have greater  effect on those customers whose consumption of  electricity is relatively high.  Residential customers who use 550 kilowatt-hours of  electricity or less per two-month billing period will pay  25 cents more per month, or $3.00 a year.  RESIDENTIAL ELECTRIC RATE (Two-Month Period)  OLD RATE   NEW RATE  BASIC  CHARGE  $4.50  $5.00  lST550kW.h  PERkW.h  4M  4.50  ALL ADDITIONAL  CONSUMPTION  PERkW.h  2.(i5c  3.0e  MINIMUM  CHARGE  $4.50  $5.00  The above rate is for residential customers connected to Hydro's Integrated  transmission network.  Here are some examples of how new rates will affect typical  electric bills:  ��� Apartment suite without either electric space heating or water  heating���two month consumption of 500 kilowatt-hours: 25f? a  month increase.  ��� House with electric water heating but without electric space  heating���two month consumption of 2,000 kW.h: $2.79 a month  increase.  ��� House with both electric space heating and water heating���two  month consumption of 5,000 kW.h: $8.04 a month increase.  Large industrial customers served on Hydro's electric transmission  rate will receive rate increases of 22% on April 1,1980, as announced  in 1978.  (New electric rates effective April 1 for all residential and general  customers will be enclosed with the first billing after that date.)  B.C.HYDRO  �� In Christ's service  Denominational integrity  by Rev. George W. Inglis  Sunshine Coast  United Churches  . There seems to be a growing  erosion of the undergirding of  denominational integrity a-  mong today's believers���born  o,Ut of what appears to be an  immature spiritual enthusiasm,  apd a desire to "get on with the  iOb" before learning the controls.  ; "It doesn't matter what  church we go to, we are  children of God," seems to be  ap ofl-rcpeatcd phrase among  r(ewly-awakcncd Christians.  The phrase is al least hall right,  ^e arc all children of God, and  vfc are all under the same two  great commandments���love  God and love our neighbour!  . ��� We are also certainly travelling to the same goal, if wc are  believers, but here the similarity ends. We are still cantankerous, self-willed and  iliverse creatures, even though  brothers and sisters in our  beliefs, and the acting-out of  bur faith can never be uniform,  as long as the human race  remains what it is, a collection  Bf individuals, acting in concert  ujnder various beliefs, ideolo-  es, and interpretations of  ith,  I It is this vast diversity of  fcepability of the human race,  jliis kaleidoscope of creativity,  talent, ability and opinion,that  Jnakes it an exciting adventure  Jo be born into the human race,  &nd face this whole spectrum of  possibility as the rich heritage  t>f being an individual person.  jj is the infant's task to grow  and mature, develop inspira-   __/rJ^_  tion and motivation, and at  some stage of maturity, begin  to offer input into the field of  human endeavour.  No infant is born with  instant knowledge, or instant  capability to make wise and  mature decisions. These attributes are developed over a  period of time, and certainly  not in uniform manner, or from  the same source, or at the same  rate of speed.  Nor should the person who is  born again, in the Spirit, have  the temerity to believe that they  have gained instant knowledge  and the instant capability to  make wise and mature decisions over the much more  complex area of the spiritual  life.  When Jesus walked the  earth, he talked in parables and  homey stories that the people  around him were able to  understand and compare with  their daily lives. He did this to  his disciples also, until they  developed some maturity of  spirit as the result of the long  hours they spent with the  greatest teacher of all time, but  even then they did not understand much of what he had told  them until after the confirming  and sealing event of the  resurrection, and his post-  resurrection appearances and  teachings.  Jesus knew that his disciples  were still raw and growing in  their faith, and this, he realized,  would be the lot of every person  who accepted Christ and was  re-born in the Spirit, down  through the ages to come. His  answer to this problem was to  ask his Father to send his Holy  Spirit, the Spirit of truth, to  remain in the world to tutor,  encourage and strengthed his  followers into a firmer and  maturcr faith, so that they  might not stumble (John 15:26,  27-16:1).  In this process of growth into  spiritual maturity, there must  be a careful assessment of the  way the Spirit is leading, and  what response is the proper  one. Here is where the problem  enters!

Certainly we are all children of  God, but does that make us  robots?  So here is where the denominations come in. Each major  denomination has a great  tradition, a rich background  developed by thoughtful followers of tfle same God, but  outlining the manner in which  the response to God should be  developed.  The major denominations  may stem from the I6th century  Reformation or beyond, but  they have comprehensive doctrinal statements which have  been scripturally tested and  have been found to be compatible with the beliefs of a large  body of believers.  Add to these major denominations an array of sects,  minor denominations and  cults, and we have the Christian  army, a powerful and loyal  force whose aim is to overcome  evil and obtain eternal life, and  whose leader, Jesus Christ,  supplies the incentive and the  training. Like any army these  troops range from the battle-  wise veterans to the raw  recruits, and the opportunities  for service are widely varied,  according to the talents and the  motivations of the recruit.  It is also true that this army,  to be effective, must have a  unity of purpose and a single  loyalty, but the artillerymen,  the armoured corpsmen, the  infantry, the airborne troops,  must all have their own part to  play, and their own expertise.  This may be a loose analogy,  but it is somewhere along these  lines that the importance of  denominational integrity lies.  The newly awakened Christian,  just like the new recruit, should  go through some "basic training" in prayer and scripture  reading and study to get  oriented to this whole new and  exciting world of living in the  Spirit, and in the course of this  orientation should decide upon  the unit in which he or she can  be comfortable and most useful  Coast News, March  This may be a difficult task,  and it may require some  experimentation, but the time  and effort should be rewarded  by the assurance, eventually,  that the recruit has found a unit  in which he or she can serve  with kindred spirits in the  service of the same God and in  the army of the same Christ,  and be most effective in that  service.  It does not make much sense  for the raw recruit to think he  or she knows more than the  seasoned veterans, any more  than it does for the recruit lo  think that he or she can freelance, and do better than the  army.  Christ calls all recruits and  veterans alike to be part of his  11, 1980 7.  church, his army of believers,  but he does not stipulate which  branch to join. It is difficult,  however, to be an effective  member of the church while  playing the field and criticizing  those who have espoused some  firm doctrine to shape their  response to his call.  It is only when we understand firmly where we stand  and have our feet planted  firmly that we can work and  serve creatively.  We have to understand what  we are, before wc can see what  wc are not!

We aim to carry  those items that are related to that class of trade.  For instance, we don't carry packets of screws,  bolts or nails, or motor oil���but we do have  hardware items, such as pots, pans, plastic  garbage bins, etc.  Along with the 'soft goods' such as towels, face  cloths, tea towels, place mats, we carry a few lines  of quality dress socks for men, women and  children, as well as work socks, work gloves and  garden gloves.  It's fairly commonplace to see this sort of mix  today. One major food market has incorporated  huge inventories of general hardware and  household appliances. The volume of traffic a  food store generates makes it possible to sell  these items at a lower price than is common in a  market place that specializes in only these items.  I've oft' times thought it to be unfair to those who  try to make their livelihood in a specialized fashion,  in which they do provide broader selections and  better service.  However, we all have to survive in a market  place that has become a jungle of merchandising  techniques.  The drug stores have perhaps brought about  the biggest change in the merchandising scene.  They now sell everything going, including grocery  items. Meanwhile the drug lobby, supported by  the scare tactics of consumer "do-gooders" have  virtually closed off the sale of a very large block of  household remedies from the low price grocery  trade.  They do this on the grounds that this product  may contain ingredients requiring the protective  guidance and advice of the pharmacist. Do you  find these products on the shelf behind the  pharmacist's station? Oh no! You find them in the  general traffic areas everywhere for your easy  convenience!  And so, while we sell a few related nonfood  items in our store to maintain our business in a  satisfactory position, both from the consumer's  point of view and ours, there may be those who  could say they should peddle groceries too, or,  those consumers who could say, - "Hey, why let  the big drug chains dictate where I may buy nonprescription household remedies."Inmyviewthe  distribution of many commonplace remedies now  excluded from sale in food stores should be  reviewed.  Sim with confidence. Our prices are uery competitlue.  Wi will not be undersold on these aduertlsed Items.  we fully guarantee euerythlng we sell to be satisfactory.  or money cheerfully refunded.

On the Rocks -*  by Helen Sallis  and Bernie Parker  On March 1st and 2nd  Gibsons Winter Club hosted 241  rinks for a very successful  Ladies' Open Bonspiel. Super-  Valu sponsored the "A" event,  won by the TAIT rink of North  Shore Winter Club. Second  prize went to the HUSTWAIT  rink, also from the North Shore  Winter Club. HILLTOP  CHEVRON was the sponsor of  the "B", first prize going to the  DAVIS rink from White Rock,  and second to the SUVEGES  rink of Gibsons. "C" was  sponsored by Howe Sound  Distributors, the ROWE rink  of Cloverdale beating out the  SALLIS rink of Gibsons for  first prize.  We want to thank SuperValu  for their donation of the Club  Perennial Trophy for our  Annual Ladies' Open Spiel.  The Juniors have had a most  successful year and are already  planning for their next season.  Watch for the car washes they  will be holding through the  spring and summer.  Eighteen of their curlers  attended the last competition  of the season in Richmond on  Friday, February 29th, with the  Richmond Juniors winning on  points 18-14.  Kevin VanVelzen, Rick  Buckmaster, Amber Wolan-  sky, and Brad Dorais won both  the league and the playoffs.  Most Valuable Player Trophy  was won by Damir Shtenz,  while Glen Fisher won the  trophy for Most Improved  Player.  Seniors' Curling News  The Seniors had a return  Inter-Club match with Powell  River Seniors on Friday,  February 29th. Earlier in the  month twenty-five of our  Seniors went up to Powell  River to have a Mini-Spiel with  our counterparts at Powell  River. We all had a very  pleasant day ending in a lovely  supper.  An equal number of their  Seniors came down here and  had a very pleasant re-match.  Both being good hosts, we won  up there and they won down  here. We are all looking  forward to the re-match next  year.  Our season is winding up  now and the top two rinks out  of our eight will play two games  out of three for the trophy. We  hope to have this playoff with  the rest of the club's playoffs  towards the end ofthe month.  Good curling!  #��'C  THE  RUSH IS ON FOR. THC HUNTER TRAiNING.

August 1972  G i bSOnS Villagers awake. We've waited long enough to get the 1972 plan for  the alternate route to the ferry completed.  In a series of damaging moves, a group of Area E yahoos have blocked the completion of  the Gibsons by-pass.  Theyhave: 1. Added over $400,000 to the Gibsons sewage treatment plant that you  are now currently paying for.  2. Prevented Gibsons getting a park completely paid for and equipped by  the provincial government.  3. Had the by-pass moved up the mountain where it will be of little use to  Gibsons residents.  4. In contrast, Pender Harbour residents fight for what they want, don't get  their garbage dump closed, don't get their high school rebuilt with  common cement brick like Elphinstone but with fancy brick and a  swimming pool as well.  There is a needed urgency for the 1972 By-pass to be completed as traffic conditions have  become so dangerous in front of the Mall and High School.  Think about it! The village has been dormant long enough. Get in touch with the Area  Planning Committee for Gibsons Village with your ideas.

Miller Marine Electronics of  Gibsons has now gone into the  business of making custom and  assembly line marine alarm  panels. These will be for use on  commercial and pleasure boats  and can also be adapted for  home use.  The alarms give a light and  sound warning for anything  from an overfull bilge to low oil  pressure in the engine. In the  home they can be built as  burglar alarms, tied into smoke  detectors or just about anything that operates with connecting points.  The business has hardly gone  into operation and already  orders are coming in from local  boat owners. Once in full  operation the main sales outlet  will be in Vancouver. They will  also be marketed locally  through Miller Marine. Lome  is also looking into the mail  order business, as there are very  few manufacturers in this  particular field.  Marion Hodson is shown here assembling a marine alarm panel.  And finally Lome Miller proudly displays some of the finished products  Roberts Creek  Parents worried  Roberts Creek parents are  unhappy with current school  boundaries and apprehensive  that if Sechelt parents are  successful in their bid to  include the senior grades at  Chatelech, their children will  be forced to attend Chatelech  rather than Elphinstone, Roberts Creek, with strong feelings  of community identity, also  feels closer to Gibsons than it  docs to Sechelt. Trustee Puchalski presented a brief with  101 signatures expressing the  concerns of Roberts Creek  parents. He was supported by  several parents and students at  the meeting.  Trustee  Clayton  expressed  her  understanding  of the  concerns of Roberts Creek.  They are the same feelings  which have motivated the  people ol'Sechelt and obviously  the concerns of both communities will have to be taken into  account when the School  Board meets the Chatelech  Senate on March 20.  Journey Log - South   Part II   Our long planned trip by car  to the Southern U.S. and  Mexico was finally underway  on Janyary 29, 1980. We were  nearing the U.S. port of entry at  Blaine, Washington, had our  stories all straight for the  Customs and Immigration  people, and in spite of many  years of passing through that  human shield guarding a  common border which separates our two countries, we were  as nervous as cats in a room full  of rockers!  As we pulled up in front of  one of the many cubicles, the  officer looked us over coldly  for a moment, punched some  information into the computer,  then asked, "Where do you  liver  We all tried to answer at once  but he interrupted us. "Where  you off to?"  I bravely took over at this  point and answered; "Well...  you see...uh...there's this hot  sun and warm beaches...down  the road somewhere and..."  Again he interrupted, "O.K.  On your way. And have a safe  journey." This time he sort of  smiled with his eyes, we smiled  back gratefully, then began our  roll out to the long and  beautiful freeways of Interstate  S, stretching for 1600 miles  through Washington, Oregon  and California to the Mexican  border.  "California, here we come..,"  we all sang in unison as we  settled into our comfortable  niche, adjusting tote bags and  pillows, snacking goodies,  expelling the nervous tension  that always seems to build  when approaching a border  crossing, gradually replacing it  with enthusiasm for the holiday  awaiting us on the sun-baked  beaches of the deep South and  Mexico.  The weather at the start of  our journey was as we would  want it to be; cold, wet and  breezy. Forecasts for our neck  of the woods were ominous.  Great! We'd hate to be leaving  Beautiful British Columbia if  the weather was sunny and  mild. Folks back home would  laugh at our smug post cards  saying, "Having a wonderful...  etc...etc..." from the sunny  beaches of San Diego or La  Paz. That would never do. I'm  sure each of us secretly hoped  for a foot of that white, fluffy  stuff to be left behind for our  neighbours to slop around in  while we toasted our tootsies in  the sun. Oh, man's inhumanity  to man!  So we were on our way.  Reclining the seat a bit, I  punched the cruise-control at  58 miles per hour and settled  dwon for the long haul. Even at  58 mph, other traffic began to  pass. I contemplated 60 and  tried it for a few miles, but that  'border-crossing-itis' began to  bother me as I concentrated on  mirrors for that elusive State  Patrol, more than on the traffic  ahead.  I soon punched her back to  58, feeling that I would get  away with a three mile spread,  where I may get cited for five. I  rationalized that 1 would be  saving energy and that I should  be watching my mirrors in any  case. After all, half of the  world's traffic is behind us!  Our first stop that night was  an early one at Tumwater,  Washington, just South of the  State Capital of Olympia.  Winds were rising, snow was  being forecast and it looked  like we were going to get our  wish. For that reason we made  an early start the next morning,  hoping to run out the storm. It  was still dark when we pulled  off the freeway into a small self  serve station that was just  opening up.  The attendant was trying to  thaw out his rest rooms and as  this was partly the reason for  our stop, I decided to buy only  $5 worth so we could stop for a  fill down the road. When 1  handed him the $5, he said,  "Another five bucks, please."  "But...but...but," I stammered, pointing at the 59.9c on  the pump.  "Read the fine print," he  replied. I did.  "Fifty nine, point nine cents  per...half gallon?!"  "Yep! Pumps won't register  over a buck so we have to  double the pump reading."  "Why, we don't even pay that  in B.C.!" I expostulated.  "One dollar, nineteen point  eight cents is what she is, old  buddy!" holding out his hand.  I dug! Very unhappily!  We put in a long day and lots  of miles, spurred on by the  forecasts of freezing rain and  snow all down through Oregon. We were determined to  make the California border  before we stopped again.  We did, but not in the way I  had hoped we would. At a rest  stop just out of Yreka, California I found a tire going flat.  Of course, one month's supply  of holiday gear was piled on top  of the spare, but fortunately the  weather had turned sunny and  warm by this time so we made  the best of it.  We couldn't match our  winter tread in Yreka so had to  go for a new highway tread.  For a second line radial,  including taxes; $72.00 and  change. Has inflation hit the  U.S.? You had better believe it!  Early next morning, and  fortified with a great American  breakfast with golden fried  hash browns, we pulled into the  local self serve station. I didn't  bother checking for we needed  gas at any price. But what a  price!  They are beginning to use  litres down there now, but I'm  sure the average gas buyer  doesn't take the time to figure  out per gallon cost. They just  fill 'er up and pay the shot!  But to us Canadians, who are  getting used to looking for 22c  per litre regular, 33.5c per U.S.  litre, and in California, comes  as a bit of a shocker, to say the  least! It didn't take long to  figure out from my handy  conversion table that a U.S.  gallon contains 3.785 litres and  at 33.5c per litre, we were  paying $1.26 8 per U.S. gallon.  Now, to carry this a bit  further, 1 U.K. gallon contains  4.564 litres. At 33.5c per litre,  our cost for a U.K. gallon  would be $1.52 3. Add to that  the 16% currency exchangeand  we would be paying $1.76 7 per  U.K. gallon in Canadian funds.  The highest we paid was at  Redding, California. For regular gas, it was $1.29 per gallon,  going through the conversions,  the cost would be $1,79 6 per  U.K. gallon in Canadian funds.  By this time we were reviewing our travel budgets and  reconsidering our holiday  plans. We figured our miles to  the Mexican border and decided that the cheaper Mexican  gas would ma ke up for some of  the high U.S. prices. We drove  South as far as we dared on  what gas wc had, then pulled  off into a small town. The first  pump we saw displayed $1.15 9  per gallon.  Eureka!! Compe-  tilion at last! And now I know  why 'Eureka' is the motto ofthe  State of California! It is full of  surprises!  One of the surprises is that in  two days, we are all rejoicing at  paying bargain prices of 13.1c  less per gallon than up the road,  after crying the blues in Canada  when paying $1.00 per a fifth  larger gallon!  And to think that a Federal  Government was recently defeated for 18c per gallon!!! We  should count our blessings!  We found a few service  stations out of gas and some  closed down, but we have a few  of our own going out of  business. We were never refused and always treated  pleasantly. And in case I have  discouraged anyone who had  planned a driving holiday  down South, let me fill in what  our costs finally were.  First ol all, wc had to change  our plans about Mexico, partly  because of Hooding and water  conditions and partly because  of I.D. problems of one of our  party.  Our route took us to San  Diego for a week; over to  Hemct, near Palm Springs;  then on to Phoenix, Arizona.  We just beat the rain out of  Phoenix but it really caught up  to us in Las Vegas. From there  we headed for the Oregon  Coast, up #101 through Washington and home.  We drove a total of 4200  Professional Repair & Service  to your  oil & electric heating equipment  -AUTHORIZED DEALER FOR-  [tsso]  Gulf  The Best Buys  Around!

King  Juba and Petrius and their  small retinue had to ride hard  to escape.  "Thus they travelled from  town to town, harried always  by the relentless Romans, and  at every town the gates were  closed and always the people  said, 'We have no King'. King  Juba grew morose and not even  the songs of Pel ri us could cheer  him. As they passed each town  their retainers began to desert  them, slipping away shamefully  in the darkness. At last only  line remained: a huge black  slave, the King's bodyguard.  He carried no sword, but his  great hands and powerful arms  had crushed the life from many  if the King's enemies and it  pleased ihe King that his foes  should tear one unarmed slave  more than any sword in his  kingdom. This slave was called  Ihe Mute because he had never  spoken since the day they had  taken him as a boy from the  jungles far to the south.  "King Juba, Petrius and The  Mute were driven in time into  the harsh stony country which  borders the Sea of Sand. When  they saw the dunes shimmering  before them King Juba did not  pause or speak but rode on into  the trackless ocean of dust.  Though they had little food and  scant water for such ajourney,  Petrius and The Mute followed  without question. They rode  through the country called  The Waters of Death, where  demons lived in brilliant lakes  that ever recede as they are  approached, driving men mad  with thirst.  "Finally they came to the  Innermost Place, the land the  desert men call The Eye of  God, saying that here God  gazes down upon the world.  They shun this place, for The  Eye of God shrivels all that  lives. Nothing would follow  them here, not the Romans, not  even the jackals and carrion  birds. In the centre of The Eye  of God they halted and raised  their tents, nibbled the last of  Gas versus electricty  ( iinlinued from Page Two.  up on the losing side.

In the  awful silence of that night,  King Juba and Petrius spoke  together for the last time. When  they had embraced and retired  to their separate tents, King  Juba spoke to The Mute with  signs and gestures, giving him  to understand that he had but  one final service to perform on  the coming day. 'Then you are a  free man,' said the King, with a  contemptuous wave of his arm.  "When The Eye of God again  opened on the world, King  Juba and Petrius arose and put  on their armour. As they  stepped into the building light,  Petrius drew his short straight  Roman sword and King Juba  the long curved blade which  had been his sceptre and his  scourge. They saluted each  other. Then the emptiness  was filled with the sound of  iron ringing upon iron.  "In spite of the pitiless heat  and the many wounds they  gave one another, the terrible  combat continued unabated,  until their shadows grew so  long on the parched earth that  it seemed as though two giants  strove there under The Eye of  God. The Mute stood all day in  the sun, unmoving, watching.  At last the blood and the sun  took their toll. The blow no  man can parry was struck. A  moment later, the victor fell to  his knees and collapsed across  the corpse of the fallen.  "The slave waited for a time,  still watching closely. The  victor attempted to rise once,  but fell back with a groan. At  length the slave approached the  two men. He stood over them,  looking down, for a long time.  The victor still breathed. The  slave reached down and picked  up the long curved sword,  whirling it once overhead.  Then, as The Eye of God closed  upon the world, he plunged it  into the victor's breast with a  Licensed  Premises  "Recent Developments", a photographic display of the works of thirteen Vancouver  Photographers was on display at both secondary schools last week.  fierce  cry.  Taking only the  cry,  flaccid waterbag and the  sword, he mounted the strongest horse and fled from The Eye  of God."  The white man's gaze followed the long curving blade  until he stared into the eyes of  the black giant. Suddenly the  sword was whipped away and  pointed out across the limitless  moonlit waves of sand.  "If you wish to go, go now,"  the deep voice whispered, "no  one will prevent you. You may  find your freedom. You may  even find your throne. Perhaps  you will find only The Eye of  God."  The white man rose to his  feet unsteadily. He looked out  into the shimmering emptiness  and shivered. He glanced at the  black man whose eyes were  wide and fixed, staring along  the extended blade. Then he  turned and began stumbling  wearily down the dune toward  the sleeping camp. Behind him  he heard laughter, like the howl  of a mad god, rising through  the still darkness toward the  unblinking moon.

IQiff fff| AT an venire  Wildlife  IF*  corner  hy I tin Corrance  I'.ei Luke  ; I went to the Lei Lake  njeeting at the Rod and Gun  ("liih last week. I had to report  iln it and believe mc, it was hard  tt) try 10 write an unbiased  story.  I can see that there is a need  lor testing chemicals. They  can't be thrust on the public  with no knowledge about them.  Hut when I hear things like the  Chevron company having  already done tests on Orthene  in the States and Agriculture  Canada not releasing the  results, I get suspicious and  rtjad,  j I talked with another re-  rinrter alter the meeting. Her  i'eeling was that the people on  ���he Sunshine Coast complain  about everything, and that they  were not specifically against the  chemical. They just didn't want  it in their back yard. Well I  agree with them, I don't want it  in my back yard either. As one  man at the meeting said, "I've  hunted all over this province  for many years, and I'll show  you any amount of lakes miles  away from anywhere that you  can use."  I've been up to the Lake and  the area around it is unlogged.  This is because it is in a reserve  area. If the logger had to stop  cutting before he reached the  Lake, then why should it be  open game for chemical experimentation?  I say let's be a bunch of  complainers. It's the only way  to keep things in check. By the  way, I was quite impressed that  the meeting was conducted in a  pretty civilized manner, considering that the two groups  were diametrically opposed.  Cool heads and reason will get  us further than if we run  around like a bunch of hot  heads. Mind you if reason fails,  well...  At the pound  There are some pretty interesting dogs up for grabs this  week at the pound. There's a  registered male samoyed about  two years old. It's had all its  shots. A> male collie, good with  kids, and a shepherd lab mix.  This last one needs acreage, it's  a good watchdog, and also  good with kids.  Blue Jay  Chloe Day gave me a call the  other day. She is being visited  by a blue jay���not the stel-  lar's���so I popped up to her  house on Cemetery Road and  had a cup of coffee on the off  chance that the bird would  show up. No luck I'm afraid,  but people in the area should  keep their eyes open and they  may get a sighting.  Spring  It's coming up all around us.  Time to get my boat fixed,  come out of hibernation, get  down to the tennis courts and  maybe even lose the extra  inches I put on to keep me  warm over the winter.  Unfortunately, I didn't make  it to the Marsh Society meeting  again last week. This is the  second one I've missed in a  row, This time the Lei Lake  meeting was on the same night.  This will be a short column  this week as most of my wildlife  adventures consisted of watching the snake show at the  Cedars Inn. I felt that it was  within the line of duty. So that's  all for the moment. Give me a  call at 886-2622/886-7817 or  886-9151 if you have anything  interesting, ta.

Roller  skating  Responding to a request  from Benoit LePage for permission to use Elphinstone's  gymnasium for roller skating,  the School Board was presented with details of the cost to the  District of such an activity. A  conservative estimate would  include an hour for clean-up  after each session and the cost  of revarnishing the floor every  three months instead of the  normal every ten months. This  would add approximately $20  per session to the $7.00 per-  hour rental fee for the gym  nasium for a local non-profit  organization.  The use of a  smaller gym would of course be  proportionately less.  Emphasizing that while they  have no objections in principle  to such use of the gymnasium,  Trustees felt obliged to reject  the LePage application because  no guarantees of adult supervision could be provided. The  Board agreed they would  require sponsorship by a  service club and a guarantee of  several adults, minimum of  four, and preferably six to  supervise, as well as financial  stability before any application  could be considered.

At  that time they found no ill  effects on any organisms except  the ones they were after. The  only incident was with two bee  keepers who had let their bees  out during the application.  There had been heavy losses in  the bees and a high concentra  tion of Orthene was found in  them.  Other questions voiced concern over the safety of using the  pesticide in an area so close to a  populated area, especially  when the area in question has  been set aside for a forest and  recreation reserve.

Send your entries to the Coast News, Box 460, Gibsons.  Last week's winner was Mrs. Barbara J. Yates who correctly located the pictured sign  on Richard Abrams' door across from the Bank of Montreal in Lower Gibsons.  On becoming a Rover  Ramblings of a Rover  by Dec Cce  After the passage of some 54  years I cannot recall with any  degree of certainty just how I  got to Brantford, Ontario,  whether I hitchhiked all the  way or travelled part of the  distance by bus. However, on  my arrival there I was told that  if it was construction work I  was looking for I had by-passed  the place where most of it was  in progress at the time. So back  east I went and eventually  found a road building gang at  work near the small town of St.  George. Someone had told me  that if I were to tell my  prospective employers that I  was a newly arrived Englishman the possibility of my being  hired was extremely remote. So  when I located the foreman I  had my story all ftady. I was a  Scotsman born in Dundee and  had been in Canada for quite  some time. Whether he actually  believed me I have no means of  knowing but anyway he hired  me, pointed out the mobile  bunkhouses and cookhouse  and told me to report at the site  next morning at 7:30 a.m.  The "site" proved to be a  quarry just off the road where  blasting had been done and on  ihe road was a huge stone  crusher, into whose insatiable  maw was fed the rocks which  were wheeled up on planks  from the gaping holes that the  dynamite had chewed out of  the earth. There were three or  four men armed with huge  sledge hammers who remained  in the hole to break up the  larger rocks, but my job was,  along with many others, to load  my wheelbarrow and, by hell or  high water, get it up to the  crusher so that it wasat no time  running idle.  I had heard and read of the  chain-gangs in the southern  states of America where convicted felons were forced to  perform such work, but never  for a moment in my wildest  dreams had I thought I would  be part of one in Canada!  The foreman was a big,  rawboned Dane with flaming  red hair and a temper to match  and the gang, of which I was a  part, with the exception of one  wiry Irishman, was comprised  entirely of what they termed in  those days, Polacks or Bo-  hunks, who neither spoke nor  understood English. Whether  they were Poles, Ukranians,  Estonians, Latvians or whatever is beside the point, but  they were a tough, strong  hunch of men and I stood out  like a sore thumb among them,  not only for I I; youth and  I nglish accent but by my garb.  In all the dilly dallying in  Montreal and later in Toronto I  had never given a thought to  acquiring some working  clothes or boots.  To this day I am amazed that  I was not fired right away but  Pcderscn, the foreman, had one  redeeming feature, he had  either a bizarre sense of  humour or it might have been  he was wondering just how  long I would last in such a  crowd and at such gruelling  work. Looking back on it now I  am also surprised that, after my  excesses in Montreal, I was able  to wheel that barrow up those  planks even empty, let alone  full of rocks, but wheel them 1  did and although by noon I was  in a state of almost total  collapse, when the whistle  sounded I was back at it again  and was determined I would  keep up with it even if it killed  me. That night when once  again the whistle sounded to  signify the end of the working  day, I hardly had strength to  make it to the bunkhouse, get  washed and totter to the  cookhouse for my supper. I  never thought I would live  through the night and see  another day I ached so from  head to foot.  Perhaps I should have  mentioned before that the pay  for this Herculean labour was  75c per hour so with an eight  hour day we literally had made  $6.00. However, our room and  board was set at $1.50 per day  and such things as tobacoo,  socks, gloves etc., were  expected to be purchased at the  Company's store and at  escalated prices, so one had to  be on careful watch all the time  if one's object was to save and  make a "stake".  Although I was far from  being happy with my first job in  Canada I stayed with it and got  stronger and more used to it  every day. There were two  things that really bugged me.  Number one was why we had to  wheel rocks up an inclined  plank to feed the crusher and  why, in the name of common  sense, wasn't this infernal  machine below road level in the  quarry, but when I broached  this subject to the foreman he  enquired sarcastically if I had  come there to work or  reorganize the project, so I  hurriedly let the matter drop.  Number two, and this turned  out to be a serious matter, was  that apart from Jim Ryan, the  Irishman, I was a subject of  ridicule to all the others and,  particularly, to a huge fellow  whom Jim and I had given the  name of "The Ape". Where he  originated I didn't bother to  find out, but he always seemed  to be behind me and on the way  to the crusher up these  sometimes slippery planks he  would either push the tire of his  barrow into my heels or at  times between my legs, almost  throwing me off balance, tothe  hilarious delight of his fellow  Bohunks. Something had to be  done about this and speedily  before the situation got out of  hand. For me to fight him in a  stand up, knock them down  and drag them out brawl was  out of the question as I knew  with his strength and size he  would have broken me in half,  but I pondered it in the  bunkhouse one night after  supper and, unknown to  anyone, came up with a  solution which I proceeded to  put into action the very next  morning.  Most of the rocks we were  wheeling were sharp, jagged  pieces, whether they were  granite, limestone or what I  don't know, but sometimes  among them could be found a  stone that through water action  was smoother. So on this  particular morning. I selected  one and carefully placed it at  the side of my barrow for future  use and, when I threw the  others off, I retained it. One  could almost have called it my  pet rock!  Sometime in mid-morning  with Pedersen up at the cursher  and this idiot up to his old  tricks, I put my plan into  operation. As soon as he gave  me a bump from behind I set  down my barrow and turning  around faced him with, I hope,  a friendly smile and pointed to  his load of rocks and, in  particular, one way up in the  front of his wheelbarrow, so  that he had to bend over to see  what I was pointing at. At the  first lean he wasn't far enough  so I smiled again, shook my  head and continued to point  with my left hand while my  right reached behind and got  hold of the grapefruit-sized  rock I had chosen. With a silly  look on his already stupid face,  he bent further forward so now,  with a behind and over motion  that resembled a bowler in a  Test Match at Lords, I brought  the rock down on his head!  It never occurred to me at the  time that I could have killed  him, but it did the trick! If you  ever saw a pole-axed Polack  here was one as he fell forward  and sideways just like a stunned  steer and, when the foreman  came down to see why the  wheelbarrow procession had  been brought to a sudden halt,  he was still lying on his back  with his open eyes still staring  unseeingly at the beautiful blue  July sky! I am certain that the  foreman knew what had  happened although the  Irishman, with a ready wit,  suggested either sunstroke or a  heart attack! We had a pail full  of water for drinking purposes,  so this was dashed in his face  and soon he revived enough to  sit up and be groggily led to the  bunkhouse.  I feared reprisals from either  him or his fellow countrymen,  but soon after I received a  promotion. No more wheeling  rocks; now I was told to crack  them and who would have the  courage to tackle an obvious  homicidal maniac armed with a  sledgehammer?  Environment  More than 1.4 million tonnes  of nitrogen oxide emissions are  dumped on northeastern Canada every year. The major  source of this pollution is the  car, and it's affecting, our  environment.  This is a new regular feature  of the Coast News. It is being  written and put out by the  Writing 11 class at Elphinstone  Secondary School. The people  involved until summer are:  Kathleen Hall, Kelly Keays,  Ara Bandi, David Laidlaw,  Cheri Martin and Ruth Mc-  Caughtrie. The class leader is  Mr. Geoff Madoc-Jones. It is  hoped that the column will give  the community a weekly  glimpse into the many and  varied happenings at Elphinstone.  Last week the long-awaited  23-passenger mini-bus finally  arrived from Richmond. This  bus had been purchased by the  Student Council and must be  paid off within the next two  years. It was purchased for the  transportation of school teams  and clubs and for field trips as  well. You should look out for  its square, chunky looks a-  round the villages. It's yellow  with ELPHINSTONE SECONDARY, S.D. �� 46 written  on the side.  The yearbook committee is  in full swing again and this year  the yearbook committee is  looking for grade twelve baby  pictures. These will appear in  the school annual at the end of  the year, accompanied by a  witticism���each of which will  be discussed with the individual  grade twelve involved.  Grad committee is also  working hard at sorting out  whattodoonthebigdayatthe  end of the year.  Student Council is in the  process of undergoing an  internal change. The Vice-  President has resigned and the  campaign for election of a new  'VP' will be beginning on  Friday, March 14th. The  council organised a most  successful dance on Friday  night. The band was RAGE  and an enjoyably loud time was  had by all.  On the sporting scene, the  fine weather has seen the  reappearance of Senior Boys'  and Girls' Rugby, and Girls'  Soccer. However, the basketball season is just finishing for  the Elphie senior boys. They  won the Howe Sound Tournament and left last Tuesday the  4th for the Single A Provincial  Basketball Tournament at  Hope which started on Wednesday and finished on Saturday, March 8th. Full details  of Elphie's performance at the  tournament will appear in this  column next week.  Last Tuesday the Drama  Class went to the Waterfront  Theatre on Granville Island in  Vancouver. The students saw  the musical The Fantasticks .  About 25 people went and the  light-humoured play was enjoyed by all. Many expressed a  desire to go to another play.  On March 5, 6 and 7 three  students went to the Counter  Attack Conference at the Hotel  Vancouver.   The   Conference  dealt with being aware of the  effects of drinking and driving  and what can be done about it.  The students that went were:  Sharon Hall, Luke Curwin,  and Neil Neilson. They will  now be involved with a Grad  Awareness Program in the  school and with Mr. Heathey,  Law 11 teacher, with a Coun-  terAttack program in the  Community.  Mr. Heathey also teaches  Geography 12. On March 6, he  took his class to UBC to listen  to a visiting professor. The prof  was the head of the Faculty of  Geography of the University of  Peking. Twenty students went  to hear a lecture on the  Historical Development of the  City of Peking. The information was more than sufficient but the main problem was  the professor spoke broken  English.  Also on March 6, Bob Hearst  from the Fisheries Department  visited Mr. Shead's grade 8  science classes. He talked to the  students about Salmonid Enhancement. They saw films and  did research on the reproduction percentages in oleal  streams. The students are  actively involved in this program as they have cleaned three  local streams.

At the time of purchase, often a buyer is most concerned with obtaining the minimal  monthly mortgage payment possible, because there are so many other expenses  connected with a first-time home purchase.  Over the years, when the home is furnished and the owner's income has probably  grown, he may continue to pay the original monthly payments established when the  mortgage was placed. Assuming the kind of "minimal monthly payment" can cost you  money.  There have been many articles, reports and commentaries illustrating the cost of  borrowing money, including mortgage money. Yoi*can do something, however, to  reduce that cost to yourself. You might pay as little as an additional $20 per month on  your mortgage. One example of mortgage cost saving was based on a $40,000 loan at  11% over 35 years in which it was calculated that the additional $20 per month resulted  in a saving of approximately $41,000 over the life of the mortgage. Your minimum  monthly mortgage payment habit could be expensive!  When applying for a mortgage or reviewing it, the Real Estate Board of Greater  Vancouver urges you to pay close attention to prepayment privileges. If you use  the prepayment privileges wisely and regularly you can save a lot either in dollars or in  the number of years of mortgage debt.  Some mortgages have an anniversary prepayment clause which permits a lump  sum payment each year. The prepayment clause usually states the maximum amount  that may be prepaid as a percentage amount of the outstanding principal. Even if you  cannot make the maximum payment, a partial prepayment could be a benefit. A  savings account for the anniversary payment, wherein a homeowner saves only $20 a  month, could be an answer. Or you could simply add the $20 each month to the  minimum payment you are now making. ���  You could spend a little time and effort to save a lot. Think about the effect that less  than $1 a day can have on the total cost or repayment of your mortgage. There are  mortgage computer services available, or your neighbourhood real estate agent can  check his amortization tables to help you calculate the effective saving reflected in  applying only a,'few extra dollars to each monthly payment. Check out how you can  spend a little, and save a lot.  COAST  /    Af. VANCOUVER ISLAND  lit Sunshine Coast Realtor, March 11, 1980  Mitten Realty Ltd.
