 Victoria <g  e Sunshine Coast since 1945  LEGISLATIVE LIBRARY  Parliament Buildings,  VICTORIA, B.C.  V8V 1X4  81.1  The Sunshine  Delivered to every address on the Coast  January 20,1981  Volume 35, Number 3  Caustic soda causes eye burns  Two injured in mill accident  Two men were sent to St. Mary's Hospital early Tuesday  morning to be treated for eye injuries sustained during routine  maintenance of caustic plant equipment at Cantor's Port Mellon  Nil.  B Josip Shtenz and Ken Macmillan were injured at  approximately 10:20 am. when they attempted to clear clogged  inlets above a pump on the white liquor clarifier which removes  solids from the caustic mixture used to digest wood chips in the  pulp-making process.  During the attempt to clear the inlets, caustic soda splashed  back and struck both men in the face. Shtenz sustained second  degree burns to both eyes and Macmillan received burns to his left  eye.  Residential development planned  Both men were given a 15-20 minute first aid eye-wash at the  plant before being transported to St. Mary's. Subsequently both  were transferred to Lions Gate Hospital in North Vancouver for  further treatment. Shtenz and Macmillan were discharged from  Lions Gate Hospital Thursday morning.  Caustic soda burns to the eyes may not cause permanent  damage if treated promptly and properly, Neither Shtenz nor  Macmillan is expected to suffer permanent injury asa result of the  accident.  According to Dennis Davidson, Safety Supervisor at the mill,  the accident investigation into the incident has recommended that  a standard procedure for clearing the inlets be established and that  protective clothing and equipment be worn at all times during the  procedure.  Bonniebrook deal completed  Land-clearing equipment made short work of the job of clearing up the lot at the junction of Seaview Road and Highway 101 last  week. It is reported that townhouses are going to be built on the site. - J��hn ����"��">��� p"��'��  All swap land now in Egmont area  CP land deal near completion  Ministry of Forestry officials in Victoria have confirmed that  an agreement of transfer has been completed in connection with  the land swap of 2,000 hectares of land on the Sunshine Coast for  acreage on Vancouver Island. Land on the Sunshine Coast will go  to Pacific Logging, a subsidiary of CPR in the deal.  Ed Knight of the Department of Strategic Studies for the  Forestry Ministry said that the government had decided against  including in the swap the 1,000 hectares originally scheduled to be  exchanged in Roberts Creek. Instead, the whole amount of land  to be turned over to the CPR subsidiary will be in the  Skookumchuck area.  Knight estimated that there was $60 million of timber involved  and a like amount in gravel resources. It is estimated that the  province stands to lose $12 million stumpage fees on the timber  and an estimated $10 million royalties on the gravel.  Knight said that an agreement of transfer had been completed  though some negotiations remain to be finalized.  Sprhelt fieefU fnrnripr' tfhrarv -- %^S^  kJV/Vll^ll    1 !.*_/*_/VI. O        M-P- " ��J\sM. IlJJlal   J ���   the immediate construction ofa Gibsons by-pass on the Sunshi  M. M. ' J Coast Hiihwav.  Alice Amelia French sold a 33 foot lot for the token amount of  $1200 to the Sechelt Village Council in 1966 for the purpose of  building a library.  She had worked in a pay-lending library previously and was  interested in Sechelt having the same kind of facilities.  In 1973 the Village bought another lot next to it for $5000 and  now both lots are worth 10 times that amount.  The library committee. Alderman Joyce Kolibas and Charles  Lee have suggested the sale of one of these lots to fund the building  of the new library.  It all looks financially good on paper but to some it isn't such a  good idea.  Helen Dawe, town historian and ex-librarian, feels that both  lots should be kept for the future expansion of the library for when  a larger archives than present will be needed.  *��� >  Sechelt's 25th  Sechelt will celebrate the 25th Anniversary of the  incorporation of their village on February 14. There will be a  Dinner Dance in the new municipal hall for past and present  members of council and Sechelt citizens that have been  residing in the village since 1956.  A commemorative plaque with the names of all council  members since 1956 will hang in the council chambers, along  with the picture of the Queen and chairs for the council  members donated by the ex-mayor Merv Boucher.  Silver maples will be planted along Teredo Street as silver  is the symbol for a 25th anniversary. Local businessmen will  celebrate the event with 25th Anniversary sales.  Morgan Thompson, a 27-year resident of Sechelt and the  Committee head for the 25th Anniversary celebration, said  that a float will commemorate this event in the Timber Days  Parade instead of February 14, because of the weather  factor at this time of year.  Covenant to go  As a result of discussions held at the public meeting last  Sunday at the Welcome Beach Community Hall, Area B  regional director Peggy Connor will recommend that the  regional board lift a restrictive covenant which prohibits the  '-,e of a lot adjacent to the Jolly Roger Inn for anything  other than "twenty parking spaces."  The lot, owned by Jolly Roger Inn Ltd., will now assume  full Commercial 2L zoning. Few people from Secret Cove  attended the meeting, but Area B Alternate Director Jack  Mercer has contacted a number of residents and found no  opposition to the lifting of the covenant.  Firehall expansion  Approximately forty-five people attended the public  meeting held at the Welcome Beach Community Hall last  Sunday to vote in favour of putting the questions of the  Halfmoon Bay Firehall expansion to referendum.  The referendum on the purchase of the lot will be held  March 7 and projected final adoption of the by-law is April  -9, 1981.  Her most important suggestion is that there is a need to appoint  a library board to oversee the details of building and maintenance  of the library and the archives.  A library consultant would be called in to supervise the building  of a proper library with attention to details and layout of the  library itself as well as the archives.  Archives must be kept at specific temperatures and the light  monitored to preserve the delicate old documents.  The great need for professional attention was stressed by Miss  Dawe as the importance of Sechelt history and heritage is at stake  in the decisions at hand.  Labour problems cited  Penco departs  Penco Manufacturing is relocating to Vancouver after only a  year in business on the coast.  The textile plant, which makes garments for the Canadian  branch of Kore't of California in Vancouver, was to have  employed 45 locals and turn out 2,500 to 3,000 garments per week.  Only 8 employees were working when the plant shut down this  week. The lack of experienced workers, and the inability to keep  staff was the major reason for the downfall of this operation, said  one of the disillusioned owners.  Minimum wage was offered to the girls during the training  period and after that they could go to piece work where they stood  to make as much as $50 a day, said a past employee of Penco.  "But that didn't keep the girls interested enough, they wanted a  raise in the hourly wage."  Bill Stacey and Jerry Boezewinkel, partners in the business, are  happy about the move. They found a new building in Vancouver  where the rent is $1,000 cheaper than they were paying in  Seamount Industrial Park. Heat and lighting is also included and  they won't have to pay travelling costs to take the products to  town.  In Vancouver, on Beattie Street, Boezewinkel feels they won't  be faced with the same staff problems, "The girls have more  initiative and they won't work unless you do pay them by the  piece."  Forestry roads damaged  Work is scheduled to begin by the end of January on repairs to  31 kilometers of roadway and 28 culverts on Forest Service roads  in the Sechelt Forest District damaged by flood swollen creeks  and rivers in late December.  According to Mike Lister of the Sechelt District office, access to  some small logging sites, reforestation sites and "special products"  sites has been disrupted and will be restored on a priority basis.  Roads maintained by private companies, classed as "industrial  roads", sustained less damage from the floods. Industrial roads  are generally better ditched and maintained than the more  extensive network of Forest Service roads, many of which have  been "inherited from old logging operations".  The preliminary estimate of the cost of restoring Forest Service  road systems within the whole Vancouver Forest Region is $1.8  million.  Anyone requiring information concerning forest road access  should contact the Sechelt District Forest Service Office in  Teredo Square or call 885-5174.  As of January 6, ownership of Bonniebrook Lodge and trailer  park and 91 acres of adjacent land passed into the hands of two  companies formed by a group of local businessmen.  Approximately 7 acres of commercially zoned property  presently occupied by the Lodge and trailer park has been  purchased by Bonniebrook Land Investment Ltd.  According to Jeff Harvey, who will manage the Lodge and  trailer park for the company, improvements will be made to both.  The trailer court will be run more efficiently, Harvey says, and  substantial improvements will be made to the Lodge. While  preserving the character of the Lodge itself, the company plans to  open a good restaurant and lounge on the premises.  The remaining 84 acres, currently undeveloped, is already  zoned for residential development and will be the site, Harvey  says, of a "major residential development."  Powell River urges  1  by-pass construction  in  - . ... appeal for  the immediate construction ofa Gibsons by-pass on the Sunshine  Coast Highway.  ���i  In a letter to Alex Fraser, Minister of Transportation,  Communications and Highways, the Powell River Regional  Board points out thi.t since it "is concerned about the Sunshine  Coast highway and ferry connections at Langdale and Earls  Cove", the board "strongly endorses the need for immediate  construction of a Gibsons by-pass highway".  The letter alto requests that the Minister advise the board of  plans "for upgrading or improving the Sunshine Coast highway  connection and the Earls Cove to Saltery Bay ferry link for the use  of the projected increased traffic to and from the Powell River  The residentially zoned acreage has been sold to Bonniebrook  Ocean Estates Ltd., and though details of the development are still  in the planning stage, Area E Director Jim Gurney says he has  been contacted by the company and has walked the lite with a  representative of the developers and discussed their plans.  "What they want to do definitely appears to be some sort of an  asset to the area," Gurney said.  Gurney said the developers are aware that some of the flat land  they have purchased is included among a number of parcels in  Area E which he and his Advisory Planning Committee have  recommended be covered by zoning amendments that would  increase the minimum lot size to one-third of an acre. The regional  board, Gurney said, will likely give first and second reading to  those amendments at their regular meeting this Thursday evening.  ON THE INSIDE...

J"m Bu'���",�� <*"*'���  Sired year's first lamb  Bear victim did not die in vain  It is ever a pleasure to find the silver lining which redeems the  cloud and this week we are afforded just such a pleasure. It is a tale  of gallantry and heroism which was not in vain. .  Last fall we all remember that there was a spate of bear stories.  It wat theorized that the closure of the Gibsons Dump, long a  happy hunting ground for bears, combined with an unusually  poor year for the berry crop of the Sunshine Coast had driven the  animals to look for their pre-hibernation sustenance on the  property of their people neighbours.  On September 16 we ran pictures of two dead bears which  between them had been responsible for three dead sheep and two  dead goats.  It can now be revealed that one of the dead sheep, a ram killed  when a bear broke into the barn on the property of Geoffrey  Madoc-Jones on Reed Road, did not die in vain.  The three ewes in the barn at the time of the attack all escaped  and it appeared that the ram���a 200-pound animal���had done  valiant battle before being dragged off by the large black bear thus  enabling the ewes to escape.  Last week the first of those three ewes gave birth to what may be  the first lamb born in 1981 locally. The other two ewes are alto  pregnant.  Ruth Madoc-Jones found the lamb which was born in the bush  on Monday, January 12, about mid-day.  i  ���takaaaa 2 Coast News, January 20,1981  The  Sunshine.  /  A LOCALLY OWNED NEWSPAPER  Published at Gibsons, B.C. every  Tuesday, by Glantord Press Ltd.

Second Class "Mail Registration No. 4702  Production Department:  Pat Tripp  Nancy Conway  Sham R. Sohn  Lyn Fabio  Circulation  Michael Nozinski  Welcome news from Iran  Late-breaking news as we finished the  paper on Sunday night indicated that Iran  and the United States had come to an  agreement and the American hostages  were on their way back home.  We welcome the news. The world is one  confrontation the less and the families of  those held in captivity are long overdue the  release of the terrible tension under which  they have lived.  Whether the agreement was reached  because the Iranians feared to try to deal  with the incoming president of the United  States or because, with oil exports cut off  and a war with Iraq still going on, they are  in desperate need of money is of little  importance.  It is enough that the long melodrama is  over and one possible powder keg on the  world's stage has been defused. However  difficult, the way of negotiation and  compromise is the way of the future and  the fact that it is being followed in the  hostage incident is welcome indeed.  More Socred favouritism  It's pretty hard to keep up with the  government of the province of British  Columbia these days. Announcement  follows announcement and the list of  scandals or seeming scandals or possible  scandals grows every week. We were still  reeling from the news that Marathon  Realty had been dealt several thousand  acres of Sunshine Coast real estate when  the news broke about some more farm land  being excluded from the Agricultural Land  Reserve in the Fraser Valley.  We are told that the governments of  Delta and the Greater Vancouver Regional  Board favoured the exclusion of the 323  acres in question because land for housing  was growing scarce. It seems futile to point  out that within a generation it may seem  massively more important that arable land  is growing scarce.  That the land involved belongs to a longtime supporter of the government party  and financial backer of the MLA for the  area should surprise no one. Everything  this government has done since it came to  office in December 1975 has indicated  that it is a government of privilege and  short term gain. It has no vision which  extends further than the immediate  accumulation of wealth for its members  and supporters and it is a tragedy that such  a venal bunch should be in charge of the  future of this beautiful province.  Opportunity missed  Elsewhere on this page the point is made  that the present furore over the repatriation of the constitution is reminiscent,  more than anything else of the Great Flag  Debate of the early sixties. It is indeed  likely that a repatriated constitution will  have as little lasting effect in promoting a  Canadian identity as the flag has proved to  have.  It is achingly obvious that the Prime  Minister after a lacklustre���which may be  kind���twelve years in office sees the  repatriation of the constitution as his  surest way to a place in the history books.  In a dozen years he has seen the  governments he has headed achieve  nothing else of significance.  A repatriated constitution will not cure  n��nada's ills any more than the new flag  brought in by his predecessor did two  decades ago. For better than fifty years the  Liberal party has been papering over the  cracks in the walls of Canada while selling  the furniture and it will take more than  paper to keep the country together.  The country cries out for a sense of  renewal and a sense of vision. It seemed  briefly to be at hand in the late sixties when  the present Prime Minister came to power  but at the moment is nowhere to be found.  History, if it is interested at all, will not be  kind to Pierre Eliot Trudeau despite his  vaunted intelligence and his enormous  vanity. He is a man who might have been  great and who was given the opportunity.  His failure to measure up to his  opportunity must be obvious to all but his  most fanatical admirers.  .from the files of the COAST NEWS  FIVE YEARS AGO  Regional Board has given the go-  ahead for the the re-building of the  shake mill at Wilson Creek which was  recently destroyed by fire.  Art McPhee, who recently replaced  Don Pye as the co-ordinator of the  Sunshine Coast Emergency Services  Program, told the Regional Board that  a great deal of work has been done on  the program locally but that several  important decisions are upcoming.  Canada Manpower officials say that  there are approximately 700 people on  the Sunshine Coast looking for work  and that the chief problem locally is the  large number of unskilled people  looking for work but with no jobs to  accommodate them.  TEN YEARS AGO  Mrs. Agnes Labonte is named Good  Citizen of the Year in Gibsons. Mrs.  Labonte has been prominent in the  community in girl guide work, as a  school trustee, and for diligent work  among young people generally.  C.H. Scoffield, general manager of  the Canadian Chamber of Commerce  reports that a survey conducted  recently of Canadian public opinion  had stricter enforcement of antipollution regulations as the chief  public concern.  FIFTEEN YEARS AGO  In spite of letters complaining that  the $30 per year water rate was too  high for Gibsons, council decided it  was reasonable and cheap at that  price.  Ron Haig is elected president of the  Gibsons and District Chamber of  Commerce with Percy Lee as vice-  president.  Gibsons Elementary School Science  Fair was postponed until February 3  owing to a heavy fall of snow.  TWENTY YEARS AGO  Sechelt Indian Band donates 11  acres of land  opposite the Indian  School for construction of the new St.  Mary's Hospital.  From Sunday, January 8, to Sunday,  January 15, 8.42 inches of rain fell in  this area.  Chief Charles Craigan is re-elected  for his third term as chief of the Sechelt  Indian Band.  Plans are discussed in Davis Bay to  tie the area water system in with that of  the village of Sechelt.  TWENTY-FIVE YEARS AGO  The 201 ratepayers of Sechelt are  involved in a hot and heavy debate  about the merits of incorporating as a  village. The vote is expected next  Saturday.  The school board has approved the  construction of a high school in  Pender Harbour but the site has yet to  be chosen.  Wilson Creek Community Association members are considering  enlarging their hall.  THIRTY YEARS AGO  In addressing a public meeting,  James Sinclair, MP, forcast that  running a car ferry from Horseshoe  Bay to Gibsons would change the face  of the whole area.  Howe Sound Farmers' Institute  Building has to move from its location  next to the Bals Building. The new  location is not yet determined.  Mrs. E. Nestman is serving her  second term as member of Gibsons  village council. She is the first woman  to be elected.  THIRTY-FIVE YEARS AGO  The final meeting of the Pacific  Coast Rangers, Pender Harbour  Branch, was held on January 4 at  Irvines Landing for the purpose of  purchasing arms. The unit was organized in 1942.  The explosion of an oil stove  wrecked the greenhouse of Mr. William  Elliot of Sechelt Greenhouses.  A school of blackfish has been  visiting in the Halfmoon Bay area.  When Europeans first came to the Pacific Northwest coast late in the eighteenth  century, sea mammals lived here in abundance. And, despite the fact that these  creatures lived largely on salmon and herring, waters also teemed with runs of fish.  The sea otter was sought first. By 1830, the much prized fur-bearer was practically  extinct. Then the hunt was on for the whale and the fur seal. Jack London  dramatized life on a sealing schooner in his novel "The Sea Wolf". When the photo  shown here was taken at Victoria about 1910, the animal had been almost  exterminated as far north as the Bering Sea, and the schooner fleet idled. Migratory  mammals became protected by law while fish remained comparatively plentiful.  Now, all around the Pacific Rim, with salmon and herring stocks becoming  depleted, the remaining mammals are being looked upon as the modern wolves of  the sea���competitors in the hunt���and their species further endangered. Photo  courtesy Fred Betsworth Collection. L.R. Peterson  Musings  John Burnside  Slings & Arrows  >*;  George Matthews  Why do editorial writers so  seldom have anything constructive to say? Why doesn't  Canada dare to be different?  There are a couple of questions that I thought I might  address myself to this week.  It's more than two decades  now since I first attempted 4*  write something constructive  editorially and at that time all  I won for my effort were hoots  of derision.  In the late fifties I gloried in  the title of Night. Editor of  The Georgian, which was the  name of the university newspaper of Sir George Williams  University, now known as  Concordia University.  It was a position which  carried with it little prestige.  At that time there were about  2,000 full-time day students at  the university and 8,000  zealots who were combining  full-time employment with a  university education. Thus my  only previous newspaper experience to this was as the  token representative of the  exhausted 8,000.  Relationships between the  day and the night occupants of  the downtown concrete campus were not cordial. In the  first place the day and the  evening students rarely met.  In the second place the  evening students tended to be  older and more care-worn  and unsubsidized. The consequence was that the day  students looked down on the  evening students for their  lack of 'school spirit' while the  evening students thought,  when they had the energy to  think about it at all, that the  day students were frivolous  and immature and spoiled.  It was virtually impossible  to find an evening student who  had the inclination or the  energy to take part in anything  extra-curricular. I was the  exception. In a particularly  frenzied period I was working  for the Canadian National  Railways, taking three university courses, acting in a  play with the drama club  which couldn't even begin rehearsals until 10:30 p.m. when  classes for the evening students finished, and of course  I would be delighted to take on  the position of Night Editor.  Be all that as it may, I  greatly enjoyed my stint with  the Georgian. They let me  write a column entitled Night  Light. I covered the odd  front page story and I found a  staff of a few dedicated and  foolish evening students to  work with me, By the end of  the year the day editor would  often phone me to see if I  could find a reporter for him  amongst the evening students  so all in all it was a successful  year.  In the late fifties the great  Canadian Flag Debate was  just continuing. The welfare of  j the country for the future  would depend on whether we  retained the Red Ensign, as  John George Diefenbaker, the  Prime Minister, so passionately wished, or whether we had  a new made-in-Canada piece  of bunting to hang over our  Post Offices and the occasional school. As an exercise in  masochistic identity search it  was not unlike the present  constitutional debate.  The constructive suggestion  that I made at the time was  that Canada eschew a symbol  of nationalism whether old or  new, choosing instead to  adopt as its emblem the flag of  the United Nations. It was an  editorial that never saw print.  It was too radical for the young  radicals who ran the paper.  They were full of derision for  the crusty old conservative  who was Prime Minister  and passionately in favour of a  flag for Canada, but my idea  shocked them right down to  their essentially conformist  roots. Take away their radical  posturing and they were as  unable to think a new thought  as old Diefenbaker himself.  I still think it was a good  idea and certainly anyone who  thought that Canada's identity  crisis would be solved with the  coming of the Red Maple  Leaf emblem must have been  long ago disillusioned.  As with the flag debate, so  it will prove with the grand  constitutional designs of  Pierre Eliot Trudeau. Twenty  years from now the debate  that rages now about the constitution of Canada and who  should repatriate it and how  and whether or pot a charter of  rights should be included now  or later, will make as little  difference to the citizens of  this country and whether or  not it is still a country as the  flag above the Post Office does  today.  If Canada exists it will be  because it deserves to. For  Canada to deserve to exist  it will have to dare to be  something different from  other countries, specifically in  this country's case, different  from the giant neighbour to  the south. That means that  Canadians will have to think  thoughts which are their  own, hold opinions that are  their own and support causes  which have their origin here.  Let me suggest a few:  Let this country take the lead  in urging the abandonment  of nuclear weapons as a  national policy and suit actions  to words by relinquishing  immediately all connection  with nuclear armaments. That  will be a distinctive Canadian  position. Let this country urge  that Jerusalem be designated  an international city and that  to emphasize the international  nature of the historic place,  the United Nations headquarters be moved there  without delay. Let this country  be a passionate spokesman in  support of international peace,  justice and thereby human  survival. That will resolve  any question of identity.  Canada will be different by  definition and by philosophic  stance and we will be spared  the sight of would-be philosopher kings trying to ensure  their place in the history books  by quibbling over quasi- or  would-be legalities.  Well, there you have it.  Something constructive in the  form of a suggestion as to  how Canada could dare to be  different. I expect that it will  get as much support as my  long-ago suggestion about the  flag and the alternatives  chosen will have as little  impact, but the suggestion is  made.  There is something mildly  incestuous about columnists  commenting on one another's  work in the same newspaper,  but I feel compelled to comment on Frances Fleming's  article in last week's Coast  News, "Teachers professional? No way." In her column,  Mrs. Fleming argued that  teachers' claims to professional status were a chimera;  that the educational system,  the bureaucratic structure,  "negate the claim that teaching is a profession at all".  Under normal circumstances, anyone suggesting  that teaching was not a profession wouldn't raise an eyebrow. Of course teaching isn't  a profession. But these are not  normal times. When most of  the teachers now in the system  were hired, they were in great  demand. Ten years, ago,  a new teacher could choose  between a half dozen desirable teaching situations.  Teachers were fawned over  and competed for. Nowadays,  teachers are generally unloved. Parents suspect they  are pompous pedants, university professors consider  them charlatans, educational  administrators believe they  are incompetent and, in  general, the world, except for  the children they teach,  believes that teachers are  over-paid, bleeding heart wet  nurses. Consequently, when  someone like Mrs. Fleming,  Shine,  Perishing Republic  While Ihis America settles in the mold of Us vulgarity,  heavily thickening to empire,  And protest, only a bubble in Ihe molten mass,  pops and signs out, and the mass hardens,  I sadly smiling remember that the flower fades to make fruit,  the fruit rols to make earth.  Out of Ihe mother; and through the spring exultances,  ripeness and decadence; and home to the mother.  You making haste, haste on decay: not blameworthy;  life is good, be il stubbornly long or suddenly  A mortal splendor: meteors are not needed less than mount-  tains: shine, perishing republic  Bui for my children, I would have them keep their distance  from the thickening center; corruption  Never has been compulsory, when the cities lie  at the monster's feet there are left the mountains.  A nd boys, be in nothing so moderate as in love of man,  a clever servant, insufferable master.  There is the trap that catches noblest spirits,  that caught���they say���God,  when he walked on earth.  Robinson Jeffers  who knows what she's talking  about, makes a statement  about teachers not being  professionals, many of those  insecure teachers react with  uncharacteristic hostility.  Actually, the last thing  anyone should want is that  teachers be considered "professionals". The whole concept of professionalism is  medieval and has gathered  around it so many misconceptions and inaccurate notions that anyone, from  plumbers and garage mechanics to baseball players and  golfers can lay claim to professional status. The truth of  it is that a good mechanic  probably has more justification in calling his job a  profession than any of the so-  called professionals.  Professionals, by definition,  deal with matters of life and  death. Doctors, lawyers, ministers of the church can, under  some circumstances, claim  such responsibility. Further,  professionals operate from a  theoretical base. Theories  concerning the practice of  medicine have existed for  more than 3,000 years, lawyers operate from a structure  of laws that has existed for  centuries and ministers base  their work upon the Bible.  There is no such thing as a  theory of teaching. Certainly  there are some tentative  theories on how people learn,  but no connection has ever  been made about how to  teach.  In the case of the true  professional, the primary responsibility lies with the profession itself, with the base  of theory and knowledge.  The client is a secondary  responsibility. The very nature of professional work is  that it is designed to keep  personal interaction as objective as possible. In dealing  with the matters of life and  death, the last thing needed is  subjective concern and emotional involvement. Could we  tolerate teachers with no  subjective concern or emotional involvement with their  clients? Of course not; the  whole notion would be absurd.  Teachers, the best of them as  Mrs. Fleming pointed out, are  constantly and deeply involved with the children they  care for. Those who aren't  have no business in the  business.

Letters to the Editor  Howard White replies  Editor:  I would like to answer two  criticisms levelled at the January 6 Pender Harbour Ratepayers Report in last week's  .'paper. Referring to the December 14 Community Plan  meeting, Robi Peters asked  ���how the report could label "150  people all to be Hot Shot  developers and lurking real  ���estate promoters." The answer  is, nowhere in the report was  'this stated or even implied.  ' What was stated was that there  ' had been a phone campaign to  get people out to fight the plan,  'which is an undeniable fact.  People were told that their way  of life was on the line, that the  plan would make progress a  forgotten word, and that plan  committee members were fraudulently dividing the Harbour  up amongst themselves. After  attending   the   meeting   and  seeing for themselves what a  moderate and sensible document the plan is, many of these  people were more than a little  indignant about the way they'd  been misled.  In a letter to the editor Jock  Hermon stated that as writer of  that particular week's Ratepayers Report 1 should have  signed myself a member of the  Plan Committee rather than  the Ratepayers Association. I  don't agree. I am currently  sitting on the plan committee,  but 1 am there as secretary of  the Ratepayers Association  and 1 contribute to the Report,  a regular feature in this paper  for several years, as chairman  of the Ratepayers Publicity  Committee. The settlement  plan committee is made up of  about IS highly independent  individuals of all viewpoints  (Mr. Hermon was a member  himself until recently) and I  could no more presume to  speak for the entire group than  Jock could speak for all the real  estate agents.  The danger is not that the  plan will be "force-fed" to local  residents, as he suggests, but  that vested interest groups will  succeed in removing the modest protection it does offer the  community. For this reason the  plan committee is considering  putting it to plebescite so that  every member of the community will have his or her fair  say on it.

For an additional premium you can increase this  amount all the way to  $10,000,000.00 if you wish.  Remember it is this coverage  that protects you if you are  involved in a lawsuit as a  result of an accident. Because of claims precedent,  increase your Liability to at  least $500,000.00 preferably $1,000,000.00. The  additional cost isn't a lot.

For a flat charge of  $12.00, you can guarantee  that, if you are involved in  an accident, the other driver  will have at least as much  Liability Insurance as you  do. In other words, if you  carry $1,000,000.00 coverage and the person at fault in  the accident only carries  $100,000.00, your coverage  limit of $1,000,000.00 will  apply.

Sergeant Murdoch really socks it to us. With  him breathing down our necks  and bellowing like a mule-  skinner, it is quite easy to forget  that we are only temporary  soldiers I soon discover that I  have two left feet when it comes  to marching in unison. Try as I  might, I seem to be constantly  getting out of step. Murdoch  certainly doesn't overlook my  ineptitude. He is on my tail like  a bird-dog. each time 1 lose the  cadence. I feel like the clumsiest  fool in the universe.  Thankfully, there are. only  t��o drill-periods a day. The  rest of the time is taken up in  classroom activities. We learn a  little basic Boy Scout first-aid,  how to break down a rifle and  what "the dead ground" means  on a tactical map. It all has its  place. I suppose but I'm curious  to get to the Nuclear business.  Another payday rolls round  and again. Paul, the Rube and  myself head downtown in our  uniforms, pseudo-soldiers on  leave in search of whatever  kicks, jaded Granville Street  may deign to offer. It is to be an  eventful and near-calamitous  night.  After a few beers, we part  company. Paul is bound to hit a  poker-game at the Athens Club  and the Rube has some unspecified business to transact at the  irther end of the street. I  squander most of the evening  with a couple of civilian street-  cronies in a noisy pub. It is a  pretty pointless exercise. Finally, I decide to head over to the  gambling-club  and  see  how  Pages  from a Life-Log  Peter Trower  Paul is making out. I am about  halfway there when I check my  pockets and discover nearly all  my money is gone. Since 1 have  only spent a couple of dollars  and no one had a chance to pick  my pocket, 1 can only conclude  I must have somehow dropped  it. Frantically, I head back to  the pub but of course, there  isn't a trace.  Furious with myself, I start  back up the street and run right  into Paul. He looks no happier  than I feel. "Jesus, man! There 1  was sitting with a pat hand so I  bet nearly all my bundle on it.  Turned out the bastard across  from me was holding a Royal  Rush. Goddamit, I'm just  about cleaned out!"  "You and me both, pal!", I  commiserate and tell him of my  own inexplicable misfortune.  His face drops even further. I'm  sure he was going to hit on me  for a few bucks to get back in  the game.  Companions in folly and  misery, we begin plodding  leadenly in no particular  direction. "Looks like a hungry  week coming up", says Paul,  "and the bloody rent is due  too." 1 don't need reminding.  Somehow, we find ourselves  in front of the Railway Club on  Dunsmuir Street. "Think this is  where the Rube said he was  going", I remember. "Let's see  if he's still there." Not that  seeing the Rube is going to ease  our common predicament but I  can't think of anything better to  do.  The  Rube  is sitting at a  corner table, somewhat in his  cups and looking like a displaced ploughboy as usual.  Only the shrewd eyes betray  him. "Grab a seat, fellers", he  says.  We join him and foolishly  recount our mutual tales of  woe. The Rube nods like some  cracker-barrel philosopher.  "Just don't appear to be your  night, fellers", he agrees. "I was  just thinkin' on a scheme to  pick up a little easy moolah. I'm  willin' to cut you boys in if  you're game."  Turns out that the Rube had  worked briefly at a small  furniture factory near the city-  limits. "The place is a piece of  cake. There's a loose window in  back and I know the combination of the safe. No one's going  to suspect us in these toy-  soldier uniforms."  1 have had similar propositions in the past and managed  to decline them. Going to jail  was never one of my cardinal  ambitions. But 1 am so disgusted over losing the money  that my usual sense of caution  is out of whack. Paul seems to  be in a similar state of mind. A  couple more drinks and we find  ourselves in the Rube's asthmatic clunker, heading for the  outskirts of town.  We tool through the suburbs  and pull up at last on a quiet.  tree-lined street. "We better  walk from here", say the Rube.  "It's only about a block away."  The night is cold and foggy, a  fitting backdrop for our illicit  mission. The chill air clears my  head and I begin to have very  definite second thoughts. What  if we get caught? The Rube is  totally given to it now. He  strides purposefully as though  he was leading us on some  legitimate military manoeuvre.  "Be like taking candy from a  kid", he insists.  All too soon, we are standing  outside a back-window of the  factory. It looms over us in the  misty drizzle, unlighted and  sinister. Paul is also starting to  look a bit apprehensive. The  Rube busies himself at the  window. Suddenly, it comes  open with a strangled squeak  like a bomb going off. "Told  you this was a cinch", he  declares confidently. "You  fellers just stay out here and  stand point for me." He hauls  himself over the sill and  disappears into the black  depths of the building, clicking  on a small penlight.  To be continued.

Two children, played by  Brooke Shields and Christopher Atkins, grow up  stranded on a tropica] island,  isolated and unaffected by  society. Taught survival skills  by the only surviying member  of the shipwrecked crew, the  cook played by Leo McKern,  they survive after his death  and reach puberty totally  ignorant of the facts of life.

From Sunday to Tuesday  (January 25 to January 27)  The Twilight Theatre features  a tribute to the late Peter  Sellers; a double bill of two of  Sellers' finest films. First up  is Hie Party, one of Sellers'  most under-rated outings, in  which he plays an East Indian  actor mistakenly invited to a  Beverly Hills movie mogul's  party. The total destruction he  inadvertently wreaks is hilarious and Sellers gives a  marvellous portrayal of a  gentle sensitive man with a  genius for chaos.  The second film is Being  There, Jerzy Kosinski's fable  of the television age, which  has been hailed as the crowning achievement of Sellers'  career as an actor. Both of  these films are worth seeing  again.

Last week 1 was  on about books becoming  'commercially available on  i tape. The only disadvantages to  1 the commercial product are the  abridgements necessary to get  ���novels down to a 2 1/2 hour  ' -reading time and the expense of  pre-recorded cassettes.  The idea of taped books  obviously occurred originally  as a method of making information available to those  whose vision is totally or  partially impaired. Taped  ���books still get their fullest use  ���for exactly this purpose and  there is a library service of  "talking books" available on  the Sunshine Coast under the  auspices of the Sunshine Coast  Community Services Society.  Last week I spoke to Louise  .'Hume, who manages the tape  library for the Society. She told  ' me that, while use of the library  is restricted to people with  handicaps or disabilities, such  disabilities don't necessarily  have to be directly vision-  related. The library exists to  serve those whose ability to  read is impaired, and the  impairment may take the form  of a learning disability or a  physical condition, like a  stroke, which makes holding a  book difficult or impossible.  The  Community  Services  Society undertook to provide  : this service several years ago,  during a period in which the  Canadian  National  Institute  . for the Blind was phasing out  -its taped book service. The  . CNIB   subsequently  reconsidered its decision and all taped  ��� book services in the province  including   the  University  of  B.C.'s Crane  Library, are  I presently   being  coordinated  under the wing of the provincial government's Library  Services.  This mingling of services will  .result in a much wider selection  .of material made available to  ithose whose reading is impaired and this cooperative  lending library system has  obvious advantages over the  commercially available pro-  - duct.  . Taped books through the  Library   Service  are not  a-  ;. bridged. "We even have The  Joy of Sex, verbatim," Louise  Hume told me, "The girl who  reads it sounds like she's been  shot from a cannon, but she got  through it all." The unabridged  [Version  of Shogun  runs  to  'some 48 cassettes, which works  'out to about $336. at the going  ;' rate for commercially available  ; pre-recorded tapes.  ',   The  Community   Services  Society has about ISO titles  available at a given time, with  the tapes rotated gradually to  keep new material coming in  . >nd still give everyone a chance  to listen to them while they're  [here. There are presently 32  [regular subscribers to the  service on the Sunshine Coast  , and tapes are available at the  .Society's   office  on   Cowrie  , Street in Sechelt on Wednesdays from 9 am. until noon.  If you know someone whose  reading is temporarily or  permanently impaired, drop in  at the office and talk to Louise  or phone 885-S881 for more  details. The society does have  three portable cassette players  that can be loaned out for short  periods but they're naturally in  demand.  A portable cassette/ player/  recorder makes an excellent  gift for someone whose reading  is impaired and while you're at  it, check around in the basement and see if you've got an  old one you're not using.  Portable cassette recorders  were a big fad ten years ago  when they first began to be  produced cheaply and many  sound freaks have since updated their equipment to keep  up with the state of the art. If  you've got one of. those old  cassette players gathering dust  somewhere and it's still in  working order (the Society has  no budget for repairs) you  might think about dropping it  off at the Cowrie St. office.  There's somebody out there  who could get hours of pleasure  from it.  Since some of the library's  subscribers have difficulty  getting down to the office, what  the  Society really  needs is  volunteers to deliver taped  books to subscribers. If you  regularly drive up and down  the coast, as many of usdo, you  should give the Society your  number and add the odd short  stop to your schedule.  If you enjoy reading and are  able to read aloud well and at  length, you could also consider  volunteering your services to  one of the organizations that  produces talking books. The  Crane Library at UBC was  always looking for readers  when I was there.  If you're serious about being  a reader, the people to contact  are the Provincial government's Library Services  Branch, 150-4946 Canada  Way, Burnaby, B.C.VSG4H7.  (Phone: 298-0322) A good  speaking voice is essential.  Louise tells me they're beginning to screen their readers  because the voice can make or  break a talking book.  Apparently they prefer male  readers because women tend to  read at a more rapid pace and  their voices often sound shrill  when recorded. I'm going to tell  that to the girl who once told  me, "Men are only good for one  thing, and they're not very  good at that." Up with Mascu-  linism. All for now.  Book Look  by Murrie Redman  A Woman of Substance by Barbara Taylor Bradford, Avon  $2.95.  While I was on vacation, the most popular paperback being  passed around was A Woman of Substance. Most of its readers  were satisfied that it told a story and offered good, light  entertainment. I am not fond of romantic novels of the Harlequin  variety simply because of their brainless language, but although  this one hails from the same genre, it is well written. Some of the  descriptions are lovely and, certainly, the love scenes are  deliciously irresistible.  Literally a rags to riches tale, Emma Harte bent on revenge,  claws her way to become queen of the clothing and textile  industry. Born into poverty, she begins as a kitchen maid in the  manor of a wealthy family in the moors area of Britain. Bright and  beautiful, it is not long before Emma is noticed by the son and  heir. Their brief affair ends with pregnant Emma fleeing to nearby  Leeds, vengeance stamped indelibly on her mind.  Like most romances of this kind, credibility is stretched to its  limit. Emma's luck is uncanny. Soon she is on her way to building  her own empire in the retail business. Feminists Will find little to  celebrate as hard-nosed but attractive Emma charms all the males  in her way to submission. At the end her rewards are predictable.  A Woman of Substance in blockbuster size, can only be called  a classy Harlequin style romance. It offers nothing new but makes  for great reading while sitting on a bus or ferry.  Bulgarian Night  at Arts Centre  This Saturday, January 24,  is Bulgaria Night at the Sunshine Coast Arts Centre.  The latest addition to the  centre's popular series of ethnic  nights will include a potluck  dinner and a folkdancing  session led by Adrian Belshaw  and Nancy McLeod.  Prospective eaters and dancers should note that because of  increasing attendance at ethnic  nights, admission has been  limited to advance ticket  holders only.  "0 Time in Your Flight"  Meeting Gilbert Egan  by Carl Chriimas  I have just had the pleasure  of meeting Gilbert Egan,  principal character in Hubert  Evans new novel, 'O Time in  Your Flight'. Of course, in  my mind, Gilbert Egan was  Hubert Evans as a boy.  At eight years of age, Gilbert  tells ofa one year slice of life in  a small Ontario town at the  turn of the century. Born of a  practical and understanding  mother, and the son of a  strong-willed two-fisted school  teaching father who waxed his  mustache and carried a walking  stick, Gilbert despised his own  name as being 'sissy'.  When his newly-born brother is named Henry B. after a  pioneer great-grandfather, Gilbert's nose is out of joint.  Henry B. used to be the best  broad-axe man in Huron  County and Gilbert would have  liked to be called "Hank Egan,  that plucky Canadian boy,  tough as a pine knot, who  paddled hs birch bark canoe up  river to live with his Indian  friends in a real wigwam. When  things got tough around home  he would send them down a  whole load of pemmican, roots  and alll"  His frequent boyhood fantasies are pure gems, some of  them hilarious.  In one, he 'phones from way  up North and says, "Is that you,  Henry B? Well, this is your first  born brother Gilbert. I have an  Indian name now, but you can  call me Gilbert for old times  sake." "My certes, Henry B.,  how your voice has changed.  You used to squawk and your  eating habits made me sick.  When our mother fed you at  one or the other of her bumps -  all that guzzling and lip  smacking..."  During an Easter break to  Ottawa with Poppa, he managed to visit Parliaments and  shake the right hand of friendship with Prime Minister, Sir  Wilfred Laurier. In his imaginary interview with the press,  he reminds them that his greatgrandfather was a personal  acquaintance of Alexander  Graham Bell."  He also has an imaginary  conversation with a large group  of lawmakers in parliament,  which goes as follows:  "If it's alright with the bunch  of you..." Go right ahead, Mr.  Eganl  "First off, how about a law to  stop people wanting to put tin  ears on people or calling them  blatterskitesr Fine!  "How about this one? On  account of this is a free country,  people should not have to toe-  out unless they feel like it!"  (This in reference to his Indian  friends who walked pidgeon-  toed).  "And oh yes! It is alright for  ordinary yankees to come up  for the summer but the blow-  hard ones should not be  allowed to set foot across the  border!"  These are but a few of the  quotes from many delightful  pages of dreams, real life  situations of an eight year old  boy and his friends, especially  that "no good, stuck-up Ruby  Greer!" As far as she's concerned, she can "go pull the chain!"  Maybe none of us dug an  escape hole in our school desk  with a short piece of wire; had a  cornet playing seat partner in  school who died of 'inflamation  of the stomach; or had as the  strongest expletive of all 'by a  long chalk; pull the chain on  them!"  But I had my dreams and  some of them were lulu's.

His many  friends in the area were saddened to learn of his death on  January i I th. Mr. Anderson  was born in London, England  where he apprenticed as an  electrical engineer, fought in  the Boer War and came to  Canada in 1903. He worked in  a machine shop in Toronto for  a spell and then came to the  West Coast in 1910. Fora spell  he lived in Invermere in the  Kootenays where he dabbled in  prospecting and where he did a  lot of game hunting.  His wife, Maud's family  owned land at Boston Bar and  in 1938 the Andersons settled  there and played a big part in  the initial development there.  In 1969 they retired to Half-  moon Bay and in 1970 Maud  passed away. James lived alone  in Halfmoon Bay and made  many friends because he had  always a friendly greeting for  all. He was a keen gardener and  there were always flowrrs in  bloom for his birthday celebration in the month of May.  His flowers will bloom again  this May, and they will continue to do so for many years in  his memory.  On the Sick List  Good news this week for  some of our frie'ids who have  been under the weather for  quite a spell. It was great to see  Blanche McCready out having  a walk after her recent surgery.  She looks very well and  appears to be making great  progress. Keep it up Blanchel  Blackie Petit is also coming  along quite nicely and it was  good to see him out walking  too. Jack Halford is still a  patient in hospital in Vancouver and it will indeed be  good news when we see him  back home again on Redrooffs.  Talking of Redrooffs���a  word of praise for the good job  being done to clear out the runoff gutters along the road.  Things were pretty bad there  for a while with all the new  upper roads being built with no  place for the run-off, causing  water to drain off all along the  highway.  The Shannons' Travels:  Managed to get some parts  of the recent three months  trip that Mary and Vince  Shannon took in their brand  new Frontier camper. As  Mary says - they "Roughed it  very smoothly"!  In all, they drove well over  fourteen thousand miles,  going right across the country  as far as St. Johns, Newfoundland.  They loved Nova Scotia,  found the people delightful,  and the Cabot Trail an exciting  and scenic adventure. They  did feel however, that September is just a bit too late in  the season for a holiday in the  Maritimes as most camp  grounds and tourist attractions close down for the  season on Labour Day.  Heading south they found a  feast of colour in New York  State in the fall. On to Florida  where they visited the Busch  Gardens and Disney World,  then a delightful drive along  Daytona Beach. Always interested in historic sites Vince  and Mary couldn't resist a  jfoofcg  8S4VX936  trip to the city which claims to  be the oldest city in the US -  St. Augustine. An old fortress and stone wall still bear  witness to the long struggle  for control of the seaport by  the French and Spanish. St.  Augustine boasts the oldest  schoolhouse in North America. It is made of wood and is  anchored by huge boom  chains to prevent its collapse  when hurricanes hit.  The only place where snow  was encountered was while  travelling from Texas to the  Gulf of Mexico. By way of  contrast they did some shopping in the French Quarter of  New Orleans and enjoyed a  day trip on the paddle steamer  "Cotton Blossom" along the  Mississippi and through the  bayous. The return trip home  was by way of San Francisco  with many stops to admire the  splendid beaches and to be  lulled to sleep by the Pacific  rollers thundering on the  beaches. As is the case with  most people the Shannons  were happy to be home  again to the Sunshine Coast  and can still claim that there  is nowhere else that they  would rather live. And we.who  are lucky enough to know  Vince and Mary are equally  glad that they live here.  Dance at Welcome Beach  Don't forget the Recreation  Society's dance at the hall on  e#f.

Redrooffs  will be well represented at this  one as John Hamilton, Ronnie  Dunn and Yours Truly will all  be contributing to the program.  That's because we all talk  funny!  The Women's Programme  By now you have probably  received your program of  events of the Continuing  Education Dept. in which there  is a whole section on activities  for women. If you study this  you will be sure to find  something there which will  meet your needs as the program  is excellent. There are many  women in this area who are  finding great difficulty in  gaining employment because of  lack of training. There are some  splendid courses offered as well  as just plain companionship  and fun with members of our  own sex.  The first of these will start on  January 22 and is in the form of  of a "Careers Alternatives  Course" where you will meet  with other women who are also  exploring options. Locally, in  the Halfmoon Bay area the  Body Newness class under the  leadership of Verity Purdy will  be starting up again on Monday January 26 at 10 am.

Dot and Stan Silvey  of Egmont Post Office fame are  pleased as punch at their  daughter Leah's effort. Leah  and Alan O'Neill are the proud  parents of seven-pound seven-  ounce baby girl named Lisa  Dorene.  Lisa saw her first light at  10:21 am., January IS, and  welcomes anyone to work out  her Capricorn chart. The other  grandparent is Alan's father,  David O'Neil, who is alive and  well in Ireland.  The prodigal sons return  And on it goes. Apparently  our clams and oysters are still  closed. Most people up our way  have forgotten what they taste  like. Actually I've talked to a  small handful of people who  have gambled with the fate of  red tide and won, but I  wouldn't advise monkeying  around with paralytic shell-fish  poisoning.  The water has cleared up and  the word is out. For the first  time in months the town is  plugged with scuba divers.  Egmont is known as a diver's  haven since Betty Pratt Johnson's write-up in her book 141  Divers in B.C. and National  Geographies resume of this  area in their April 1980 issue.  The water has been murky for  most of the winter and now has  finally cleared up and how all  these out of town divers find  this out all at once I'll never  know.  The phones have been on the  blink again. We have never had  good service up this way and  the last couple of weeks have  sparked another barrage of  complaints against BC Tel.  Everyone in town is on a party  line and apparently there isn't  room for any new phones. It  makes you wonder what will  happen when we get any more  development up this way.  /D\ SUNSHINE  Xjy KITCHENS  FINE CABINETS  866-9411 GibsonsJ  by Robl Peters  When my three teenage  sons decided to cut the apron  strings and leave the nest I  was smitten with depression.  It was so quiet and lonely  around the place, but I got  used to it. In fact I found I  had time to explore my own  interests - listen to my music -  watch my TV shows, have  people get through to me on  the 'phone, get to the bathroom first and find enough  hot water for a shower, milk to  have a cup of tea in the  morning.  Do I sound like I complained? Well, I didn't know  what I was missing until they  left. The food bill dropped  75%. Utilities, like long  distance 'phone calls and  electric bills, dropped considerably. The fridge stopped  opening (just to have a look)  that alone must have cost  $3.00 per night. The continuous roaring in and out of  cars at strange times during  the evening and the phone  calls, usually after 12 a.m.,  from their friends or enemies  to check on their whereabouts.  When I finally got over the  fact they were out and on their  own,'I patted myself on the  back and thought I had  adapted quite well. My  husband and I have nothing to  argue about and are now  talking to each other, may  even think about a second  honeymoon. Life has a new  perspective.  Now they want to. come  back! My God! It's back to the  fridge door opening every two  seconds, a fitness room set up  in my guest room; weights  being dropped and I think a  bomb has exploded; rope  skipping while I'm trying to  watch J.R. finally get his  brother Bobby; lights always  left on; no one remembers  to put wood on the fire, or put  the cat out. They talk you into  having  a  New Year's Eve  party (just a few special  friends, Mom). When you  return later in the evening,  you find every kid in the  Harbour there.  But when they talk to you  about their hopes and ideas  for the future, it's funny how  small these irritations become. You're proud to be a  part of their .lives and glad  they are back home.

(See story below.)  At the Arts Centre  Focus on Sechelt, 1956  The year 1956 was twenty-  five years age and it wis that  year which marked the .beginning of Sechelt's incorporation as a village; a recognition that it was growing up  and taking on a definition and  a destination.  The Sunshine Coast Arts  Centre in  Sechelt  is  celebrating Sechelt's 25th Anniversary with an exhibit focusing on the first year - 1956;  . The show opens on January  ; 27 and continues through to  : February 15.  Wh��t wis Sechelt all about  i that year when the world was  j busy moving from the atomic  ��� age into the space age?  Though having been settled  : since the 1890's, sixty-odd  ; years pissed before this  ;��� settlement developed and  ij formed into i community thit  I officially realized its relation-  ��� ship to the rest of the coast as  ; a centre,  and  became  in-  ��� corporated as a village.  Throughout the first part of  lie century Sechelt was  primarily a logging centre and  a resort with beautiful and  well-used beaches, tennis  courts and lodgings.  By the . mid-1950's, the  resort aspect wis phasing out  and the Sechelt we have today  was taking form what with  better access by ferries and  roads, more, people moved to  the coast and utilized, the  village.

The Board give a new  gym for Roberts Creek third  priority on its new CEP list  last month when tenders for  the project came in sd much  higher than the architect's  estimate and moneys available.  If Roberts Creek qualifies  for a full-sized gym under the  Ministry's new guidelines, the  Ministry would approve financing only for a basic school  gym with no. finishing of the  mezzanine, kitchen, or proper  acoustics. By cutting out those  things, the cost of the building  is estimated at around  $520,000 rather than $620,000  or more.  The Ministry may only  approve, money to cover the  difference between what has  already been raised for .the  joint use facility and the cost  of the basic gym. It is to be  hoped, however, .that the  School will undertake to fond  the full cost of the gym,  leaving   the   approximately  $200,000 obtained from the Roberts Creek Legion last  Joint Use Fund and the Wednesday night. They are:  Recreational FAcilities Assis- Rov Milliner, president; Ernie  tance grant for the "extras"  desired for community use.  The first Community Association meeting of the year  is tomorrow, Wednesday, at  8 at the Community Hall.  Regional Director Harry Almond will report on the  situation regarding the joint  facility and will answer any  questions.  Another item that might be  discussed is the question of  the Province's swap of Crown  land in the. area for land in  False Creek needed for B.C.  Place and owned by CPR's  Marathon Realty. The main  objection to this arrangement  is that it would cut out the  smaller logging operators.  Word is, local forestry  people have objected and the  proposed swap may be changed to Include more land In  the Egmont/Skookumchuck  area _ rather than Roberts  Creek. Harry will have any  other available information.

Long division was no longer  long division as they had been  taught; they could get the  answers, but nol the way the  teacher wanted the answer to  be arrived at. Children talked  about base 6, instead of base  10; they dealt in "sets". And  what annoyed the parents, the  old emphasis on rapid calculation and accuracy seemed to be  a lost art.  Then metrication hit the  school system, and parents who  could deal very competently  with inches, feet, yards, miles,  fathoms, ounces, pounds and  tons found that their offspring  were into grams, litres, kilometers, and once again, they  became frustrated in trying to  communicate distance, quantities, weights and measures to  their little ones.  We know that we are now in  the age of the computer and the  pocket calculator, provided the  batteries are not dead, is 100%  accurate. The only unfortunate  aspect to all this so-called  progress is that little kids are  still being marked and graded  according to their teacher's  whims and the vagaries of the  mathematics textbook writers,  .vhen perhaps it should all be  considered a game.  The history of mathematics  is a fascinating study and is  never studied in school. Why  not? It would interest the  children and their parents, and  give everyone a fresh approach  to this baffling subject.  The Alexandrean scholars,  three hundred years before  Christ, used water clocks and  sun dials to limit lawyers'  speeches, they had pumps,  pulleys, wedges, tackles, gears  and mileage measuring devices.  Heron (100 B.C.) invented a  machine whereby a S drachma  coin, dropped into a slot,  released an ounce of holy  water. These ancients had  doors which opened with a  coin, a water driven organ, a  compressed air gun, and a hose  for spraying liquid fire. They  had water fountains, figures  moved by water pressure, and  used steam to drive floats in  annual religious parades. In  temples, by use of steam, gods  raised hands, shed tears, poured out libations. Archimedes,  Al Wagner  Al Wagner  Invites you  to join  Brothers  A service of friendship freely given by  men, to boys without  fathers.  For Information  886-2615  885-5664     .  with a mirror, set fire to the  Roman ships beseiging Syracuse, according to legend.  The ancient math was practical, and measured everything.  It enabled men to travel, to  build tunnels, to build pyramids. They formulated the  hydrostatic principle and the  relationship of spheres and  cylinders. Philolaus writes:  "Were it not for number and its  nature, nothing that exists  would be clear to anybody,  either in itself or in its relation  to other things.... You can  observe the power of number  exercising itself not only in the  affairs of demons and gods but  in all the acts and thoughts of  men in all handicrafts and  music."  Some ancient scholars regarded the odd numbers as  good, and masculine; the even  numbers bad, and feminine!  The Pythagoreans believed 1 to  represent reason; reason could  produce only a consistent  whole. 2 was opinion; 4 represented justice (the product of  equals, 2 x 2)���and don't we  still talk about a square  shooter? The number S represented marriage; 7, health; 8,  love and friendship. The number 6 was a perfect number,  being the sum of its divisors, 1,  2 and 3. The number 10 was the  ideal number, being the sum of  consecutive integers: 1,2,3,4.  Two numbers were considered  amicable if each was the sum of  the divisors of the other. 220  and 284 were friendly numbers  for this reason. Numbers which  were considered suitable were  written on pellets and swallowed as aphrodisiacs.  Euclidean geometry dealt  with a closed and finite world.  It used limited instruments;  limited axioms; preferred the  circle to the straight line. Euclid  and his colleagues did not  attempt to deal with infinity.  They shrank before "the silences of infinite space". Aristotle  saw the infinite as unfinished,  imperfect and therefore unthinkable, they preferred not  to investigate the properties of  moving figures. They strove for  eternal static values. Human  reason was a Greek contribution, mathematically based.  Sophicles wrote: "Nothing  vast enters into the life of  mortals without a curse."  Modern mathematics has o-  pened the doors to infinity.  Most of us say it is beyond our  comprehension, and leave it  there. Some of us would say,  "Math is Greek to us. All we  understand is finite, limited  and concrete." And there is  nothing we can do. Pity the  children who are trying to find  their way in this fascinating but  terribly mixed-up area of study  in the year 19811 And spare a  kind thought for many of their  teachers, who are probably as  baffled as the rest of us.  way:  Fleming accurate? No  The following is a response to the recent article by Frances Fleming titled "Teachers  Professional?���No Way." My concern about the article is due to the fact two subjects have been  treated simultaneously: the issue of whether or not Teaching is a profession; and the limitations of  our system of education as it presently exists.  The juxtaposition of these two themes has the effect of implying that the latter subject can be  attributed to the former���something I can just not accept. My reply is an attempt to set the record  straight.  Yours truly, T.A. Rothney  by Thomas A. Rothney  Whoa! Hold the phone Mrs.  Fleming! I share your disappointment that the system of  education in this province (or  anywhere else for that matter)  is not ideal. I even agree that we  have yet to achieve completely  the goal of ensuring that guided  development of every child as  an individual with his own  learning pattern and his own  potential occurs. But to imply  that the reason that "all that  could be but is not" is because  teaching is not a profession, is  blatant, unsophisticated, narrow-minded provocation of the  lowest order. At best, your  article is a distorted misrepresentation of facta. At worst, it  is an inaccurate, unwarranted  and unforgivable attack on  teachers.  You are correct in stating  that teaching is not a full  profession: but your reasons  are wrong. Teaching is not  technically a full profession  because it fails to meet completely some of the recognized  and accepted sociological criteria for professions. It is  generally agreed that the  following seven conditions  must be met in order for an  occupation to qualify for  professional status:  1) Professions must provide an  essential service to society in an  atmosphere of high public  confidence. The service we  teachers provide is essential,  Mrs. Fleming, but articles like  yours aren't helping us to  maintain high public confidence.  2) Professionals have a recognized expertise not shared  by the general population���a  body of knowledge and a  repertoire of techniques, and  decisions are made in the  interests of clients in accordance with established principles and theory. In the "old  days" some teachers may have  been able to "wing it," but not  anymore. Teaching today is  guided by established and  validated principles of learning  and is becoming a more  scientific art all the time. We  know what we are doing and  why we are doing it, Mrs.  Fleming.  3) Professions are organized  into associations which are  entrusted with the responsibility for controlling the pro  fessions. This is one condition  we don't meet yet, Mrs. Fleming. We have the association���  but the universities and government extensively regulate our  activities, as you know.  4) Professionals undergo  lengthy programs of preparation in professional schools and  colleges. It used to be that  individuals could become teachers with little or no professional training. That is no  longer the case. A minimum of  four years of preparation are  required and it will only be a  matter of a few years before a  Master's degree (and eventually a Doctorate) is considered to be essential.  5) Professionals are given  permission to practice by their  clients but they are accountable  to the organized profession.  Teachers don't quite qualify on  this count: we do have a code of  ethics; but students don't  usually have the opportunity to  choose their teachers.  6) Professionals are free from  direct on-the-job supervision  and direct public evaluation of  individuals. Teachers are su-  ervised on-the-job; but evaluations are conducted by other  teachers.  7) Professionals are characterized by a strong service  motivation and a lifetime  commitment to competence. I  defy you or anyone else, Mrs.  Fleming, to identify other  occupational group (with the  exception of the clergy) which  devotes so much time to the  service of others for such  minimal financial return.  Yes, Mrs. Fleming, you are  right; teaching is not technically a profession. But you  are way off track in suggesting  that this is the direct cause of all  the shortcomings in our educational system. The idea is  preposterous and it doesn't  deserve the dignity of discussion. I feel compelled,  however, to respond to a few  specific innuendoes and/or  criticisms contained in your  recent article:  a) We have specialists in  education too, Mrs. Fleming.  From the primary teacher with  expertise in teaching reading to  the secondary music person,  schools are staffed with teachers with highly specialized  skills. We rely on advice and  assistance from outside experts  as well���particularly for stu-  $ &9R dndath&on*  CARPET, TILE ft SHEET VINYL  BOX 1092 SECHELT, B.C.

Yes, Mrs. Fleming,  the more difficult the task, the  more expertise is brought into  play.  b) No teacher takes satisfaction  in "almost" teaching a student  to do something, Mrs. Fleming. We too are innovators who  strive to obtain results. Lack of  success is as disappointing to us  as it is to lawyers and doctors.  c) To say that a student "who is  'held back' in grade one is a  loser and will never recover  from that traumatizing experience" is an insult both to  educators and to the millions of  students (past, present and  future) who have not been  ready for the next level of  learning at the end ofa specific  term. In order to be successful  students must possess the  prerequisite cognitive and  affective entry characteristics  for each new learning. To  confront students with challenges for which they are not  yet prepared is educational  homicide.  d) To say that our schools are  not structured to take full  advantage of available expertise in order to best serve the  needs of individuals is probably  true. But that is not the fault of  teachers as you imply. Show  me a doctor or lawyer or  anyone else who is expected to  diagnose the needs, plan activities to meet these needs and  then implement these plans for  25 or more clients at a time. The  ideal teaching/learning situation is a one-to-one tutor/tutee  arrangement. When education  is accorded to public support  necessary to provide for this  guidance on an ongoing basis  we will have achieved our  Utopian dream. In the meantime, Mrs. Fleming, we arc  doing the best we can with what  we've got.  You may hang up the phone  now.  Sale  Continues!  The show goes on but the beard comes off!

However natural it may be to  wish that what one doesn't  like, or what doesn't fit in with  one's hypothesis will just go  away if you pretend it doesn't  exist, it isn't an exercise to be  recommended for politicians  or anyhone else for that  matter.  In fact one could hazard a  guess that it's just such a  philosophy of ignoring issues  which were not of special  interest to Central Canada  which has resulted in the  feelings of alienation in both  the West and the Maritimes.  My first reaction to Western  : feelings of frustration with  Ottawa when I came to  Canada was that it was just  parochialism, a result of living  on the far side of the mountains. Mountains which had  been for so many years more  than just a physical barrier.  It wasn't until as a Director  of the Canadian Broadcasting  League I had the opportunity  to go to Ottawa and Toronto  regularly to meet with polit-  iclans, parliamentary bureaucrats and middle and top  management of the CBC  that I came to understand the  validity of western frustration  and anger.  If we suffer from parochialism we're not less myopic and  wrapped up in ourselves than  Central Canada.  Whatever you may think  about Lougheed's attitude,  right or wrong, he has at  least achieved something.  The boundaries of Canada as  seen from Toronto have been  extended to the Rockies.  Formerly the boundary became hazy where Yonge Street  left Metro for the great  beyond, where somewhere  there was the Lakehead and  beyond that Winnipeg, "the  West". They have heard of  B.C. but in general think we  live in a Shangri-La, not in the  real world. A casual acquaintance on the subway remarked  wistfully and a little sadly,  "Vancouver. I knew someone  once who went out there. They  never came back".  Exaggerated? In essence  not really. Harry Boyles'  hope that because there are  few native Torontonians, that  they all came from either the  West or the Maritimes and  therefore their roots unite us  all, doesn't seem to work.  Sure, politicians and executives fly into Vancouver  regularly, but they all stay at  one of the chain hotels and  meet their counterparts in  familiar boardroom and office  settings. For all they experience of Vancouver and  B.C. they might just as well  have stayed at home and made  a conference call. It's widely  believed by these people that  because they grew up in  Moose Jaw of Wolfeville or  some place outside Metro  Toronto that they represent us  in the halls of power. Or as  one CBC executive told me,  "Of course I understand  B.C.'s problems, my wife  came from Vancouver" 11  The Liberal preoccupation  with Quebec and all things  French for the past decade  hasn't helped the Western  and Maritime Provinces to feel  that they are integral parts of  a working federation. And  now their determination to get  their priorities enshrined in a  constitution regardless of the  views of others, first minister's conferences notwithstanding, must leave a lot of  us wondering about a system  which can apparently ignore  whole segments of the country.  I have mixed feelings about  joining the Western Separatist  movememt, mainly because  blackmail isn't an exercise  which I can really convince  myself is moral under any circumstances. I'm not sure that  the ends ever justify the  means.  I have to agree that Quebec  used this method extremely  successfully and also to admit  that without Rene Lcvesque  and the Pequist we'd undoubtedly have gone happily  0WR  NO NONSENSE  DIET  The NO NONSENSE OUT lormula is i concenlraled source ot  nutrients in a delicious beverage base loim All necessa.'V nutnlional  elements are supplied in quantities *hich sal-sly bodily  requirements Ihe NO NONSENSF PUN is formulated to replace all  meals in Ihe riiel U is quick convenient and very pleasant lasting,  rtavinn .1 milkshake consistency  THE SIMPLEST  MOST PLEASANT  LEAST COMPLICATED WAY  TO LOSE WEIGHT.

But  it shouldn't be necessary to  hit politicians over the head  with a 2x4 to get their attention.  I must admit though that  the Western movement has  some attractions, it's better  to have a cause to work for  than to have to sit back and  watch Ottawa with mounting  anger, even firing off the  occasional sizzler does little  to relieve the frustration.  A western state might be  small enough to let us decrease the number of governments and no longer having  Ottawa to blame for all out  woes we'd really have to work  to make our country a viable  proposition. If we came at  Federation again from the  vantage point of a.sovereign  state maybe we could put  together a constitution which  would work for the common  good regardless of population  disposition.  Of course we could do this  now, without a lot of hassle  and re-inventing the wheel,  if we had leadership in Ottawa  and a head of Government  with the intelligence and  understanding to realise that  such an important issue as a  constitution has to be taken  out of the political arena. We  have to understand that a  country such as Canada,  which has no natural cohesion  and makes no sense geographically or demographic-  ally, will inevitably come  apart at the seams unless  the central authority works for  the good of all, without fear  or favour and makes it abundantly clear that wherever they  may live or whatever their  ethnic background all citizens  are of equal concern to the  government.  Mel Hurtig wishes Trudeau  would be more tactful when he  comes West, the trouble is  that what he has done and has  not done speaks so loudly it  really doesn't matter what he  says.

"We wanted a family show,  pure entertainment" said  Producer Richard Tomkies,  "something the brave few upfront can enjoy doing, while  the most of us look on and  laugh".  It turned out to.be a brave  decision. "Arsenic" Involves  14 characters in a macabre  comedy-farce located in New  York during the forties. The  five-months of preparation  have left their mark.  "It's been like shell-shock"  reflects Tomkies. "Every time  we moved ahead, circumstances beyond our control  knocked us back again.''  There were three casting  sessions, one in Madeira Park,  two in Sechelt. When rehearsals started in September,  ten of the parts were filled.  First to drop out was "Einstein" - a febrile, phoney  doctor of mid-European, Jewish ancestry, with a penchant  for booze and criminal surgery. Einstein was replaced,  then his replacement dropped  out. Directors changed - twice.  "Mortimer", leading man and  dramatic critic, discovered  prior commitments In the  Beaufort Sea - and he dropped  out. Members of the cast  jockeyed around, replacing  each other; some left, new  ones came. The task of  scheduling rehearsals to encompass Individual prior commitments became a -flight-  mare.  "Ideally, we should have  one person in the cut. We  should hog-tie him for the  duration" joked tomkies, a  serious glint in Jiis eye.  Rehearsals con timed, two  nights a week to start with.  The Chatelech Musk Room  would have been ideal, but a  fitness group using it forced  the cast into the Art Room.  Every night, in a spate too  small, the tables and (hairs  were pushed to the wall and  the prop people carried in a  multiplicity of furniture,  knick-knacks and plenty of  coffee. As in every co-operative effort, the stalwarts  emerged: Deirdre Murphy  and Patti Allan as the two  homicidal Aunts, sweet as  flowers, who mass-murder in  the name of mercy; Al Lloyd  as Mr. Glbbs - a near victim;  Bradley Benson as the Rev.  Harper whose daughter.EI-  aine, played by Eli Mercer,  gleaned her sez knowledge  high above religion in th��  choir loft; the three New York  cops by Dodie Marshall, Paul  Smith and Mike Smeaton.  Gordon Wilson as Mortimer,  trotting out his talent after a  day teaching at Cap College  Barry Krangle, the last and  latest Einstein and a born  comic.  "It was. like pulling teeth"  said Tomkies. "With 20-thou-  sand people on the Coast,  you'd think we'd find 14  easily. But we found them".  The most unexpected member of the cast is professional  actor Dana Still. Dana was  "employed" by the Society to  direct the show - his "salary",  if any, is very much dependent  on ticket sales. Dana hails  from Burnaby, travelling with  near-religious fervour nightly  to Sechelt to bring us professional quality, 'n the  absence of any local Thespian,  he agreed to take on the part  of "Teddy", the nutcase  nephew of the mad aunts who  believes he's Teddy Roosevelt. Dana Still has an impressive professional track  record; his interpretation of  the play, not to mention the  character Teddy, is masterful.  He has a deep commitment to  community theatre and we  owe him a vote of thanks.  The biggest and last problem to be faced was obtaining  stage space. The old problem  of demographics and paro-  chiality reared its head.  "Presenting in Gibsons would  be unfair to Pender Harbour"  explained Tomkies, "and vice  versa. Either one would be  unfair to the cast. We had to  rehearse in Sechelt and we  had to present in Sechelt. We  never thought there'd be a  problem..."  Finally, support from June  Bernauer, Chatelech Principle, from Gym Teacher Lawrence Stoochnoff, from School  Board Secretary/Treasurer  Roy Mills; the show will go  on, in the Gym at Chatelech,  8:00 p.m. Friday, January  23rd, matinee on Saturday  24th at 2:00 p.m. and again at  8:00 that night. In all, a  tremendous community effort,  by us and for us, bringing a  fresh cultural dimension to us  all. The poison? It's in the  play, not the Community.  "If you think you're gonna  get out of this by pleading  insane, you're crazy!"  screams Elaine at Mortimer in  Actn.  "Best quote in the play"  said Producer Tomkies. But  he's smiling.

People twitch nervously and seem to think they could never make one!  I hate to disillusion you but souffles are simple. Of course there are all  kinds of exotica���gourmet creations that one can only dream about if  one has a budget to follow. However, a souffle is a great way to  disguise leftovers. Once you get used to the idea that a souffle is dead  easy to make there will be .no end to your creativity. Try salmon  souffles, green bean souffles, mushroom souffles etcetera. The only  snag to the souffle ��� if you could call it that ��� is that you must eat it as  soon as it comes out of the oven. However, one look at this golden  brown lighter than air delicacy and people will be/jghfing their way to  your table!  The recipe I'm going to give you today is for a Ixkic cheese souffle. It  should be enough for four people if served with some potatoes, a  couple of cooked vegetables and a salad. One doesn't have to have a  souffle dish to make a souffle ��� any ovenproof dish will do. lusually use  a V/2 quart pyrex casserole for this dish. The only other fact that you  must remember about a souffle'is that once it's irjthe oven you mustn't  open Ihe oven door to see how it's setting on. You have to wait till it's  done.

George W. Inglis  Christians all over the world  are being called upon this week  to participate in a week of  prayer for Christian unity.  It is a distressing fact that  this global fellowship which  was founded by Jesus of  Nazareth about 2,000 years -  the Christian church - should  be in need of prayers for its  unity, since all of its members  and adherents are bound  together by a simple message of  love and fellowship!  It is distressing, but at the  same time, beautifully reassuring, since it tells us that  Christians are not a closed  society of plaster saints with an  extremely limited membership,  but a gathering of human  beings, with all of the frailties  and faults, desires and temptations, weaknesses and  strengl hs, misunderstandings  and misinterpretations, hatreds  and bi iscs, fears and foibles, of  any collection of human beings  in the world.  It is reassuring, because it  tells us that any of us, no matter  how inadequate or unworthy  we may think ourselves to be, is  just as welcome in this gathering, and entitled to its full  rewards, providing we are  willing to pay the entry price of  faith and belief and conduct  ourselves according to its rules,  which are two in number - love  God, and love our fellow  humans!  It is also reassuring for  Christians who find themselves  being questioned about their  lack of unity, to be able to point  to the Bible, wherein believers  began becoming involved in  quarrels, divisiveness, and  theological struggles, as reported by apostle Paul, barely a  quarter century after Christ,  A week of prayer  for Christian unity  For all your Carpets  \  rW*2?  �������'  ��.*�����,...  x&l  T. Sinclair  885-9327  the anointed one of God, had  founded the church.  It was this lack of togetherness that made Paul write in his  Epistle to the Ephesians:  "There is one body and one  Spirit, just as you were called  to the one hope that belongs  to your call, one Lord, one  faith, one God and Father of  us all, who is above all and  through all and in all. But  grace was given to each of us  according to the measure of  Christ's gift." (Ephesians 4:4-  7).  This grace refers to the  varieties of gifts of the Spirit,  which are conferred upon ail  who believe, "according to the  measure of Christ's gift," and  Paul, in I Corinthians 12, deals  in some detail with these gifts,  which are the gifts of Jesus  Christ to his church, by the  grace of God.  It is the variety of these gifts  that distinguishes Christians,  one from the other, and gives  the church its preachers, wise  men and women, prophets,  healers, miracle workers, interpreters, and humble saints.  Each member of the church  is called with the same call, but  the reaction to the call is based  upon the response to the  summons, and it is in this  response that the human hand  is heavily implanted.  As Paul puts it: "...and there  are varieties of service, but the  same Lord; and there are  varieties of working but it is the  same God who inspires them all  in every one." (I Corinthians  12:5,6).  It is the same Christ who  issues, through God's grace, the  call, and apportions the gifts  individually as he wishes, but it  is in the interpretation of the  call that the unity really breaks  down.  However, this ability to  interpret is the greatest God-  given gift that we humans  possess; it is the one which  distinguishes us from all of the  other members of the animal  kingdom, and enables us to  make the choice between good  and evil.  How, then, you may well  ask, can we hope for Christian  unity?  The answer is disarmingly  simple!  We may hope to be united in  love, even though as far apart  as the poles in every other  respect.  To be united in love, we must  be able to accept with tranquility the fact that we are, indeed,  vastly different, both individually and corporately, and we  must be prepared to celebrate  this difference!  It is not enough to tolerate  our differences, but we must  explore them, understand  them, and honor them, while at  the same time searching our  hearts to find ways in which we  might soften the impact of our  own differences on those with  whom we come in contact.  This means that individuals,  not only denominations and  sects, must be involved in this  task, seekingto understand and  respect the differences, while at  the same time standing firm on  our own beliefs.  Entailed in this search,  undoubtedly, must be a willingness to work hard to understand what we truly do believe,  and a readiness to be open to  change, if our search seems to  indicate the necessity for some  re-assessment.  It is a difficult and all-  consuming task, and one which  Come and Hear  Father  Jacoba Hurst  Episcopal Priest  from Georgia  speak on the subject of  "ISRAEL"  This Sunday. Jan.

However, without a thorough knowledge of our own  beliefs, faith-stance and acceptance of God's truth, we are  unlikely to become anything  other than "wafflers" around  the periphery of our call, and  never appropriate it, or its  meaning for our lives, fully.  This is where we should turn  to a common denominator, a  yard-stick whereby we may  find a common ground upon  which to stand, upon which we  may start from in confidence,  no matter how intimidating the  task of sorting out the variety  of understandings.  And it would appear from  Jesus' own words that this  common denominator might  undoubtedly be a guide, counsellor, comforter: "...even the  Spirit of truth, who in the  Spirit of truth, whom the world  cannot receive, because it  neither sees him nor knows  him." (John 14:17a).  But he is known and seen, we  are told, through prayer. And  prayer is a highly commended  Christian activity!

Roberts Creek  Hospital Auxiliary  Due to circumstances beyond the control of the Roberts  Creek Auxiliary, the December  Annual Meeting and regular  January meeting were combined on January 12th.  The meeting, at the Golf  Club was chaired by Pauline  Lamb who received the annual  convenors reports, indicating a  fruitful year in terms of service  to our hospital.  Charter members (16 years)  were honoured with Life Memberships and "rose" pins. These  ladies are Lillian Flummerfelt,  Flo McSavney and Margaret  Crawford. Jessie Naylor who  was unable to attend was also  honoured as a Charter Member.  Following the meeting the  traditional candle-lighting ceremony   was   conducted   by  Betty Patterson, Area representative for the Lower Mainland. Those officers so installed  are Pres. Beverley Northway,  Vice-President, Peggy Gallo,  Secretary Flo McGavney,  Treasurer Win Stevens and  Convenors of Membership and  Publicity, Anna Pike and  Moira Richter, respectively.  Mrs. Northway made a  presentation to Pauline Lamb  in recognition of her successful  term of office. After appointment of Millie Forbes as  volunteer director with the  assistance of Madelaine Gross  and Marion Cupit the meeting  adjourned for a delightful  lunch.  The next meeting will be  February 9th in St. Aidan's  Hall at 11 am.  Mrs. Margaret Causey and Mrs. Marge Rankin thought it would  be a good idea if there was a display case for knitted goods and gift  items in the Pender Clinic for which items could be donated and  which in turn could be sold to raise money on behalf of the Clinic.  Naturally since it was their idea they became the committee and  this recent photograph indicates that there is room in the display  case for any items which can be donated. The money raised is 'for  items the government won't buy' and all donations towards that  end will be gratefully received by the members of the Pender  Clinic Auxiliary which has raised SI 5,(11)1) since it was started up in  1976.  Pender Auxiliary  The regular January meeting of the Pender Harbour  Auxiliary to St. Mary's Hospital was held on January  14 and was opened at 1:30  p.m. by the new president  Gladys Brown. It was a sunny  day and a good number of  members had come to the  meeting.  The business portion of the  meeting was completed quickly and smoothly. Peg Riley  agreed to act as convenor for  the Extended Care parties.  There was a ten-year spoon for  Eileen Alexander. Unfortunately she was not present to  receive it in person. A letter  from Sally Robinson thanked  the members for her ten-year  spoon and contained also  Seasons Greetings. In the  absence of the Publicity  Chairman, L. Richardson, the  report on the In Lieu of Local  Christmas Cards campaign  was read by J. Whittaker. The  campaign was very successful.  A former president, E.

This first meeting under the  plan to make meetings more  productive found the ladies  doing knitting and crocheting  as the meeting progressed.  When the business portion of  the meeting was concluded,  the members worked together  to finish the Valentine tray  favours for the hospital. The  favours were completed and  packed for delivery quickly.  Although power was off for  a short time it was restored in  time to make tea. Refreshments were bountiful and  included a delicious cake  made for the occasion by Bill  Brown, husband of the new  president.  It is hoped that the more  relaxed type of meeting will  encourage new members to  join the Auxiliary.  Enjoy motherhood  The Sunshine Coast Women's Program commends  this joyful, young mother who  makes the time in her own  busy life to share with others  her special contentment.  Here, in her own words, is  the outline of the series of  'get-togethers' Nancy Den-  ham will offer beginning  Friday, January 30, at Holy  Family Church Hall, Sechelt.  Each Friday morning, from  9:30-11:30, Nancy will welcome mothers who wish to  listen to and share valuable  experience in parenting. Pre-  registration is recommended.  Call 885-5392.  Being a parent is oftentimes an all-embracing activity. Wrapping ourselves in  the needs of those we love  and feel responsible for, we  shelve our own needs and risk  losing our personal sense  of identity.  Parenting can be rewarding, challenging and a joyful  life experience if we develop  a sense of our own growth  within the parenting role.  Through discussion and  some outside reading, this  program will offer to help  define our priorities as parents  and to examine some ideas on  personal growth. We will  share ideas on such questions  as: Who am I besides a  mother? Is a mother responsible for all her child's  behaviour?  Children are people, but  mothers are tool  The first goal will be to help  one-another develop a sense  of self-awareness so that we  can become conscious of our  own growth as individuals.  The second goal will be to help  one-another feel that our work  is relevant and important,  that we are able to care for  ourselves without guilt feelings and that there are other  women who share similar  needs and who can and will  support them from becoming  isolated.

We  could have used that money in  son many useful ways. By  today's standards that amount  would not go very far, but in  those Depression years a five  or ten dollar bill could buy a  host of things and it would  have saved us both a lot of  hard work and, in Mogen's  case, worry, had we have had  a little cash in reserve to draw  upon.  Of the three counties,  Stormont, Dundas and Glengarry, I have always con-  sidered the latter to be the  most attractive with its green  fields, rolling hills and small  streams that meandered seemingly purposelessly through  the verdant countryside. I am  not certain as to the positive  date in history, but I think it  was around 1784 that the first  Scottish settlers came up the  St. Lawrence River and  Jecided to settle there. I am of  he opinion that their choice of  a site, to carve out a new home  from the primeval forests and  re-establish themselves in this  new land, was governed in  large measure by the fact that  the terrain reminded them oi  their beloved Scotland they  had left behind. Mostly they  settled in the hilly part of the  country and avoided the  lowlands and, although their  choice was practical at the  time, in later years it was  distinctly a drawback. Not  only was the clearing of the  land more difficult up on those  rich, black loam and prosperous farms, while the  descendants of the Scots still  scrabble away on their hillsides trying desperately to eke  out a living with all the odds  against them.  That fall and winter of 1930-  31 were hard times indeed for  Mogens and me. If there was  anything we had in common  with out Scottish neighbours  it was a chronic shortage of  cash. There was plenty of  work, not only to be done on  our own farm but many of the  farmers around us needed  help, but, like ourselves,  had no money to pay tor it.  As a consequence, a form of  barter prevailed so that  wherever possible no money  changed hands. Besides attending to our own work,  either of us or both would help  the others with their harvesting or thrashing or,  possibly, land clearing and in  lieu of cash payment would  settle for a load of hay or  straw or, if their crop justified  it, a few sacks of oats or barley  to help out with our problem  of getting our stock through  the winter. During one of  these transactions I managed,  by working three full days, to  become the owner of a .22  rifle and it was one of the most  useful acquisitions I ever  made.  The pastures and fields of  our farm Stonestile (we named  it after one of my uncle's  farms in Kent, England) were  riddled with marmot burrows.  Known locally as groundhogs, they were disdained by  our Scottish friends and neighbours as an article of food yet  they were considered a delicacy by the French Canadians.  Mogens and I had no hesitation or qualms about eating  them and we found them,  slopes, but when the forests of either roasted or stewed, the  hard  woods,   maple,   birch,   equal if not tastier than rabbit.  beech and others were levelled and burned, the soil  underneath was found to be  shallow, full of stones and  gravel and unsuitable for the  While one did not see much  evidence of the latter-named  animals during the summer  and fall months, once - the  snow fell the woods  were  growing of most crops. Later, crisscrossed with their tracks  with   more  settlers  coming and it was a simple matter to  in over the years, the swamps snare   them.

Frequently we were able to  vary the menu when I shot  either one or a brace of spruce  partridge - commonly called  "fool hens", as if one unluckily missed them at the  first attempt they would  stupidly sit there on a branch  until one was able.to reload  and this time knock them off  with a well placed shot.  With vegetables and fruit  (there were several apple and  plum trees on the farm)  and a pig being fattened  for winter use there was little  likelihood of our going hungry, but still there were other  things that had to be bought  from the store. Necessities  such as sugar, tea, salt ot  flour had to be paid for sonnei  or later, not to mention  tobacco as both Mogens  and I smoked pipes.  I have said that no-one had  any money but this was hardly  true of a few living in the  village of Dunvegan. The  storekeeper MacLeod definitely was "in the chips", as was  MacKinnon the owner of a  small sawmill, while Donald  Dewar, a retired C.P.R.  Superintendent, was said to  be "so rich he didn't know  what to do with his money".  These were the three individuals my friend and I  worked for when we absolutely had to have money. The  storekeeper not only extended  credit to us but gave us the  opportunity of working off our  debt. MacKinnon gave each of  us work from time to time,  either in the sawmill or driving  one of his teams of horses on  such projects as roadwork-  for the Municipality and Mr.  Dewar, who lived in a fine  house just on the outskirts of  the village, called upon us  when he needed a man to  assist him in such tasks as  fence building, digging a ditch  or tending his lawn or garden.  They are all long gone to  their reward, but I remember  each and everyone of them as  exceptionally fine men of  character and would like,  belatedly, to give them thanks  for making things a little less  hard for Mogens and me  during those difficult times  and, particularly, that first  winter on the farm in Glengarry.

At this time  of year most of our fishing  fleet is in port and salmon,  halibut, cod and black cod  fishing is closed to commercial  activity.  Because the fishing last  year was very poor for a large  number of boats so in order  to keep ahead of expenses,  quite a few are presently  engaged in prawn and shrimp  fishing. So if you like your  seafood fresh now is a good  time to buy shrimp and  prawns.  Some of the sports fishermen are catching spring  salmon and are providing  fresh fish for their families  in this time when there is none  to be had in the stores.  The logical thing to do is to  go to the fish market and buy  frozen ":sh. I v-s talking to  Anne at the Gibsons' Fish  Market a few days ago and she  told me that.they have a  problem with customers who  come in to the store for fresh  fish and are quite upset when  they are told that there is none  available at this time. Anne  and Jane then show them the  good selection of fresh-frozen  fillets of cod, sole, flounder,  red snapper, ocean perch,  black cod (sablefish) in the  round, east coast scallops and  Lutefisk from Seattle, Wash,  but a great number of these  people declare that they will  not purchase frozen fish.  If any of my readers are  among this group I would like  to point out to them that about  75% of the fish that is served  in our household is frozen.  We keep a good supply In our  deep freezer at all times.  I would also like to inform  you that Chak-Chak was one of  the first customers to patronize the Gibsons Fish Market  and I have yet to purchase  seafood from this establishment that is not top quality.  This standard of excellence  is not easy to maintain with a  product as delicate as seafood  and it requires a good deal of  knowledge and dedication  both in purchasing from the  wholesaler and selling to the  consumer. I take my hat off to  the "Flsh_Ladies" of Gibsons  Fish Market.  More on this important  aspect of seafood next week.  Sea you.  LUMBER & PLYWOOD  WHOLESALE  5/8 T 0. G Std.

Armed with  the knowledge of how prescription prices are arrived at  the consumer can save money.  Prescription prices are  based on the actual wholesale  drug cost and a few for  service, rather than the usual  retail practice of marking up  the product a certain percentage. The thought behind  this is that it usually takes  a pharmacist the same amount  of time to dispense expensive  drugs as it takes to dispense a  less expensive drug.  The dispensing fee covers  the pharmacist's wages, pays  for the rent, utilities, tables,  bottles and equipment used in  filling prescriptions. This fee  varies by about 15% in B.C.  Dispensing fees in the  Vancouver-Gibsons area seem  to range from approximately  $3.85 to $4.52 per prescription.  Most people do not realize  that the drug costs also vary  from pharmacy to pharmacy.  This is where the savings  come in. Most drugs can be  obtained from the manufacturers and this usually represents the lowest price.  Sometimes a manufacturer  offers drugs on quantity  deals and if the pharmacist  is willing to buy the larger  amount, he can save his  customers money. The other  route a pharmacist can take is  to buy drugs from a wholesaler. This is an easier, more  convenient way for the pharmacist to order. However, it  adds 10-12% to the cost of  drugs. This is passed on to the  consumer.  Another way a pharmacist  can save the customer money  is by using generic (no name)  * + + :)��(:*******:)<  NOP  brands.   The   savings   are  usually quite significant.  When a. pharmacist is  willing to take the time to shop  around for the best drug  prices the customer benefits.  If you are interested in trying  to save some money, consult  with your pharmacist and find  out what his buying procedures are.  .0o^r0/f  The most  COMPLETE  GLASS  SHOP  around!

Nor do I object to people  smoking in my presence. I  rather like the smell of tobacco  smoke if it isn't too thick.  But I do find Joan Huestis  Foster's "smokers lament"  much too thick - although  apparently intended as wry  humor. Like other smokers.she  is so full of the stuff that the  doesnt realize how offensive  the inconsiderate smoker can  be to the non-smoker. Many  non-smokers suffer physical  reactions from smarting eyes to  near-nausea in concentrated  smoke. Many find the smell as  irritating as the unwashed she  mentions, or the smell of liquor  on the breath to a person who  hasn't been drinking. Or even,  lord love us, the smell of garlic  to one who hasn't been eating  it.  Much worse, however -  research has established that  non-smokers who spend much  time in a heavy tobacco smoke  atmosphere can suffer the same  deleterious results as smokers.

Thank you.  Yours truly  (Capt.) John Bunyan  This is being recognized in  the increasing development of  non-smoking areas, and rightly  to. There are merchants who  ban smoking entirely not only  in fairness to non-smokers but  to protect their shops against a  trail of burns, ashes and even  outright destruction caused by  inconsiderate smokers.  One must wonder whether  Ms. Foster was so ferociously  confronted with a dirty ashtray  in a shop which had a sign  requesting or ordering no  smoking? And if so, wasn't she  getting what she deserved?

The destructive  potential of a nuclear exchange will have far-reaching  consequences beyond the imagination of the average man.  It will suffice to recall a  statement by Premier Kru-  schev in the United Nations,  that the outcome of such a war  would "make the living envy  the dead" - but it would be  wise, indeed prudent, for us to  heed these words. But.such a  drastically different kind of  war demands a drastically  different approach to forestall  its realization. It Is naive to  rely on those in power - enjoying the fruits of affluence - to  bite the hand that feeds them.  It remains for us to act in  unison in support of this all-  pervading common Interest  and. fight aggressively for  peace or perish in a mushroom  cloud - and this choice is  painfully real I  Sincerely,  Joseph Sparacino  by Joan Huestis Foster  One does not have to go very  far these days to find tiny,  needling irritations, most of  them quite local. Last summer  we all gasped in admiration at a  magnificent stand of Foxglove  on the new unnamed road  above Beach Avenue off Mar-  lene Road. This was a display  of thousands of massed purple,  pink and white wild Foxglove  ranging in height from one foot  to seven feet so dazzling as to  make Bucharts blush in shame.  The new road was cut in  a straight line, of course, but  this unbelievable mass of  colour growing at will and  drifting into the trees graced it  with natural curves.  Now - on to Highways  department and a name for this  sun dappled beauty, laced as it  is with evergreen, salal, Indian  Paintbrush, wild Tiger Lillies  and plump blackberries.  We all wondered... Will it be  Foxglove Lane, Blackberry  Lane, Hidden Creek Road, (it  will have a view of the Ocean),  Oceanview Court? It boasts  dozens of different birds, will it  be Bluejay Lane, Eaglecrest,  Old Eagle Lane, Bushwhack  Way?  Provocative, vibrant and  with limitless imagination, as  always. Highways has laboured  mightily again and brought  forth Kraus Road. Run along  wildflowers, birdies. Tritiums  and Evergreens. Kraus Road it  is to dazzle your friends and  embellish your stationery.  Little kids will grow up with  memories of Kraut Road.  I would rather have 'Dead  Mouse Path' which at least  gives the mind a thought to  conjure. Kraus Road indeed!  With Crawe Road, Joe Road,  Henry Road, Veterans Road,  Pratt Road and Leek Road  already there to stir the senses  why not add the euphonious  blessing of Kraut Road?  If Victoria and West Vancouver are noted for their  clever and catchy street names,  must we not be considered  almost remarkable for the  mediocrity of ours? There is no  saga provided for us by Tucker  Forsyth of the Highways  Department but would he  consider lending his august  name and letting us have  "Tucker Close" which at least  sounds kind of cozy? Please,  somebody else, say something.

The plan as it  Islands today reflects all the  j input which has gone into it  during that time, and still re-  j tains the basic structure given  lit by Paterson's original com-  [mlttee, In addition, it reflects  j input   from   several   public  'meetings, numerous petitions  ���and delegations, a public opi-  Lrjion survey, and many spe-  ific .directives from govern-  eatv  From this point on it will be  orked through further public  leetings,. then presented to  le Regional Board, which will  ve the opportunity to make  hatever changes it thinks  cessary, whereupon it will  subject to further scrutiny  id changing by an intergo-  rnmental committee called  EXCAVATING  the Technical Planning Committee. Finally it will be received by Municipal Affairs in  Victoria, who will have the privilege of making any adjustments they see fit before  sending it to the Lt.-Governor  for assent. The Community  Plan, or Settlement Plan as it  is now supposed to be called,  may be nearing the end of its  local drafting but it still  has a long way to go before it  can start working for the area.  The plan as it stands  attempts to be a balanced  document allowing for development, but shaping it in such  a way as to preserve, as goal  .1.1 states, '.'a natural atmosphere, tranquility and a sense  of rural community." Other  goals recognize the need for  services, separation of land  use into compatible areas,  conservation of water, forest  and agricultural land and environmentally sensitive land  development. Goal 3.3 gives  primary recognition to the  community's economic interests: "Fishing and logging interests, marine related industries, tourist and commercial  and Imited service or light  industrial development sites  PACIFIC GADCO CONSTRUCTION  Land Clearing, light or heavy  Road Construction ��� Excavation ��� Logging  Bulldozer ��� Backhoe ��� Grader ��� Front End Loader  iGravel Truck - Skidder 886-7287 886-7951 886-7142  f  J.B.EXCAVATING  886-9031  Water, sewer, drainage installation  ��� Dump Truck ���  Backhoe  ��� Cat ���  Land  ��� Free Estimates  ���  oaennoe i\   .

The thirteen pages that follow statement of the seven  goals are devoted to elaborating on how the goals are to be  realized. Each goal is broken  down into a number of objectives, which are further  broken down into policies. The  goals, being the third item discussed in the plan, are all  numbered 3.1, J.2, 3.3 and so  on. The objectives, being the  fourth item, are numbered  4.1, 4.2, 4.3 and so on. Thus  each objective relating to the  first goal, goal 3.1, begins  with 4.1, and is designated  4.1.1,4.1.2,4.1.3 and so on.  When objective 4.1.1 is  further divided into policies,  sthe policies are designated  4.1.1.1, 4.1.1.2, 4.1.1.3 and  so on. It's really not so difficult once you stop seeing the  dots as decimal points, and it  happens to be the simplest  way of numbering a document  containing multiple divisions  of this kind.  Goal 3.1, stating the need  to preserve sense of rural  community, has four objectives: to preserve spaciousness, to encourage development of suitable roads, to  encourage a sense of community pride, and to minimize noise pollution.  Taking objectives one at a  time, the first (spaciousness,  etc.) is supported by four  policies, which are among the  most crucial and therefore  most controversial provisions  in the plan. The first, 4.1.1.1,  states:  "Lot sizes for development  in the Pender Harbour area  will depend upon the categories as defined in the plan  map. The governing factor  in setting lot sizes must  depend upon the sewage  disposal capability of the land  and availability of water,  keeping in mind that a general  sewer system is not considered economically feasible  or desirable in Pender Harbour and that water resources  are limited."  The next policy, 4.1.1.2,  sets the minimum lot size for  new subdivisions at two  hectares or half an acre.  The thinking that went into  these two policies was as  follows: The most recent  Sanitary Survey study done by  the Pollution Control Branch  in 1977 revealed something  well known to anyone who has  dwelt in the area long enough  to witness the deterioration of  many closed bays and lagoons  such as Salt Legoon, Whiskey  Slough, Madeira Bay and the  swimming lagoon at Garden  day, once clear and healthy,  into weed-choked deadwaters.  The report stated that there  were already serious pollution  problems in Pender Harbour  and recommended that "in  areas slated for greater development a more extensive  sanitary sewage collection and  treatment facility may have to  be designed" and that "present recreational, residential  and commercial development  in Pender Harbour be restricted until proper sanitary  facilities are provided." An  engineering study undertaken  in 1977 detailed the problems  and costs of installing a sewer  in Pender Harbour. The firm  doing the study, Webb Engineering, being in the sewer  building business, quite naturally urged that a sewer  system be built as soon as  possible. Despite this sanguine attitude however, the  report confessed the difficulties to be immense, and set  the cost of a system in 1977  dollars at $7,275 million.  Of course, much of this  total could be raised through  grants and subsidies, but even  after subtracting all of these,  the community would still be  burdened with an annual  cost of $260,079.64. Since all  these estimates were in 1977  dollars, they would have to be  doubled for any system  contemplated for completion  in the mid or late 80's. This  system would serve only the  main harbour basin, excluding  Sunshine Coast  Business Directory  land east of Gunboat Narrows  where some of the worst  pollution problems are and  where the greatest development potential lies. The  service area presently includes about 250 occupied  homes now but even doubling  this figure, the per-home cost  for such a system would be  over SI,000 a year. But this  cost would be minor compared  to the cost of hooking up to the  system for many homes. Since  a pressurized or "force  main" system would be used,  homes would have to "pump  in", requiring elaborate pumping facilities which could add  another $5,000 per house  installation cost in difficult  areas, with additional operating costs.  Such a system would have  to discharge outside the  Harbour and therefore could  nol  be  built  piecemeal.  Even using rough figures it  is plain that the costs of  living with a community sewer  system would be sufficient to  drive many residents on  moderate or fixed incomes out  of Pender Harbour and would  be a severe burden on everyone. Certainly other areas  have sewers, but because of  its rambling layout and  choppy terrain, Pender Harbour can't take them as  models.  Seeing that this course  was undesirable, the plan  committee investigated other  alternatives, and the only  other alternative is keeping lo)  sizes big enough that sewage'  can be absorbed where it is  created. This course was  compatible with the plain's  general attempt to preserve  rural atmosphere by avoiding  city-style crowding and so a  soil study was commissioned  to determine septically sound  lot sizes in specific locations  throughout   the  plan   area,  These vary from five acres  down to a minimum of half an  acre and are recorded on the'  plan map. With these density  guidelines in place, no one  will be driven out of Pender  Harbour by sewer costs in the  foreseeable future, because  a sewer won't be needed.  More next week.

The hunt closes in  Carl's  corner  In  search of a career  by Carl Chrbrmu  That blazing pine tree pushed back the darkness of the  deep forest night and held at  bay the penetrating cold of late  November. We had managed  to gather cedar boughs to  fashion a backwall to reflect the  heat, then had piled more on  Ihe ground for a make-shift  bed. Taking turns at sleep, we  had been able to catch a little  shut-eye and to rest our weary  bones for the chase that lay  ahead. Even old Ted was  resting between dreams of his  close encounters with the cat.  Poor old Perse was in a lot of  pain from the broken ribs as he  had not take time to get taped  up while in the store at Cassidy.  The storekeeper had given him  a large roll of wide tape and  during the night I had taped  him up as best I could in the  light of the fire. But the pain  and discomfort was going to  make a cold tracker of Perse for  the rest of the hunt and he  would have to tag along  behind.  I was right in the middle of  being cuddled and comforted  by a dusky maiden on the beach  at Waikiki when 1 felt a sudden  jab in the ribs. I awoke with a  start to find that Perse had been  nudging me and calling "Daylight in the swamp"!  Dawn was just beginning to  paint out the sparkling stars of  the frosty night with dabs of  pink and blue as the Eastern  sky began tq lighten. Our pine  tree had burned to the top and  our fire was cooling. So was I  and it was time to get moving.  "Soon as it's light enough to  backtrack Ted to the last tree  the cat was in, we'll be on our  way", growled Perse. He was  still in pain and pretty tuckered.  The track led us back down  the hill, across the river and up  onto the ridge above. We found  the tree where Ted must have  kept the cat for hours before  Perse had called him in to our  fire for his own protection. Ted  had been getting so hoarse and  tired that he had pounded  himself a bed in the snow where  he could rest and watch. After  Ted had left the tree in response  to Perse's shots and our shouts,  the cat had come down out of  the tree, pee'd in Ted's bed,  made a bed for himself in the  middle of the torn up ground at  the foot of the tree and had  J-ested there in the most audacious show of scorn that the  hunted could leave for the  hunter. That cat had no fear of  dogs. It was the noise of the bay  and bugling and the tinkling of  Ted's bell that put him up the  trees to rest!  Ted was reading sign just as  we were and it only took  moments' to sort out his pee'd in  nest, the cat's bed and the new  track he was making as he  headed again for the river. If  old Ted was excited before he  was furious now at the indignities being heaped upon him  after the frustrations of the past  day and night. He was off down  the hill with me right behind,  both of us slipping and sliding  down the slippery slope. His  track led us right into the river  and there it disappeared.  This was one smart cat and  he'd been chased before. He'd  lost his pursuers by taking to  the water and it looked like it  was going to work again. Ted  was charging frantically up and  down the wide, shallow stream,  following first one back and  then the other, trying to pick up  scent or track. The chances  were good that he had gone  down stream so I waded into  the cold water and followed.  Sure enough - there was a big  pad mark in a hump of snow on  a  flat  rock  in  mid-river.  I  shouted to Ted and kept on  going. Further down I spotted  a windfall suspended from  shore to shore just above the  water. The cougar had climbed  out, taken a few steps along the  top and left a perfect set of  prints in the snow. I shouted to  Ted again, waited until he had a  whiff of the tracks so he would  know we were on his trail, then  down the river we both splashed again. Ted was sticking  pretty close to me by this time  as if he knew I had the edge on  him under the circumstances.  The river was beginning to  narrow as we neared the roarof  the falls, the right bank was  steepening into a sheer rock  wall and the water was getting  too deep for wading. The left  bank was pretty steep but by  the look of the canyon ahead  and the white water rapids, the  cat was going to have to leave  the river soon, and on our side.  I was right.  As we rounded a bend  another rock wall appeared in  front of us. And there in the  snow were his tracks. He had  wet the snow around him as he  shook off the cold water and  had headed up the hill. And he  was not far ahead of usl  To be continued  Coast News, January 20,1981  17  Marta McKown of Elphinstone Secondary School proudly stands before the van provided for her  Coast Television program.

Our Air Service is usually  called on to assist with aircraft  which have gone down away  from an airfield, and which  must first be found and so the  'search' capability must be  developed and practised. In our  situation here on the Coast, we  can apply this same expertise to  our other "Search and Rescues" (Marine & Land) par-  Nature Note  byVlckldeBoer  Hot Dogs  Some Chinas* Food  Grocery  Food W  There was a report of a  Great Grey Owl sighted in the  Roberts Creek area not long  ago. It is most unusual to see  this owl so far south as they  are usually found in the Arctic  regions. Some years when  their normal prey of lemming  is scarce these birds as well as  the Snowy Owl are forced  south in search of food.  The Great Grey Owl looks  very much like the Great  Horned Owl but is does not  have the characteristic 'horns'  Because its plumage Is so  thick to keep it warm during  the long cold months of winter  it appears to be as big as the  Great Horned Owl but in fact  it weighs less. There have  been a few sightings of this  large Owl on Vancouver  bland and also some as far  south as Oregon.  The bird sighted in Roberts  Creek was being chased by a  flock of crows which is not unusual as crows are the only  birds which will harass the  large Owls. They create a  great racket and dive at the  Owl while he is roosting in  Fresh Fruit  Canned Goods  OPENING  January 26  Gibsons Landing  (beside Bus Depot)  his tree, this usually causes  him to move on to a more  peaceful neighbourhood.  We normally think of Owls  as night-time creatures but  they have very good sight in  daylight and they can contract  their pupils in bright light and  expand them greatly in the  dark. There are in fact a few  species of Owls that hunt in  the daytime. These include  the Hawk Owl, Short Eared  Owl and the Snowy Owl.  It has been discovered  that when hunting in the dark  the Owl uses his specialized  sense of hearing more than his  sight to catch- his prey.  He can in fact catch his prey  in total darkness. Add to that  the almost silent wing beat  caused by the long flight  feathers being tipped with  down on the leading, trailing  and upper surfaces and you  have a stealthy accurate  hunter that only the acute  hearing and speed of the  Kangaroo Rat can escape.  The Owl's main prey Is  rodents and the Great Horned  Owl is one. of .the few predators a skunk must worry  about. Owls regurgitate the  indigestible parts of their prey  such ss the bones and fur.  These remains form pellets  that gather around the base of  the tree where an owl is  roosting.

They breed  much earlier in the season  than most other birds, some as  early as February, when they  have little competition for  their food supply. The female  sits on the eggs for up to five  weeks while the male brings  food to her. The eggs are incubated from the time the first  one is laid so the young hatch  out at different intervals.  The babies are cared for by  both parents from nine to  twelve weeks and they have an  insatiable appetite. When  they can fly they are off on  their own to find new territories. Sometimes a young  Owl will fall from the nest  before he can fly but the  parent birds will continue to  feed and protect him until he  can fly. It is very difficult to  raise a baby Owl by hand and  for this reason they are best  left alone if found out of the  nest.  It is true a large Owl can  and sometimes will go after s  chicken or other domestic  fowl but his main prey is mice  snd rats so he is doing man a  service by keeping the rodent  population in check. Because  he is basically a nocturnal  hunter so long as.your barnyard fowl are locked in their  coop at night you shouldn't  have to worry about that  hooting noise outside your  window.  ticularly for vessels or people  reported as 'overdue' and  whose position may not be  known precisely.

LOCAL MANUFACTURING MEANS EXCELLENT  SERVICE AND LOW PRICES  Permaseal  Aluminum Mfg. Ltd.  Airport Rd., Wilton Creek   SSS-3S3S j  Slings and Arrows (cont'd.)  parishoner. The teacher works  with groups, twenty or thirty  at a time. Where the physician  consults in his office, the  teacher is constantly operating  in the waiting room.  In times of insecurity and  public criticism, teachers will  of course cling to the mythic  'lotinn of professionalism. It  's a way ;o make their trials  and tribulations seem more  tolerable, a way of insulating  themselves against the jabs  of friends and foes alike.  Frances Fleming is a friend of  education and a friend of  teachers. Even more, she is a  friend to children. In her  column last week, her misuse  of the term professional  offended many of the people  who teach school in the district. Many thought her  comments negative and anti-  teacher. Nonsense. She was  simply using a term that  teachers use themselves and  showing how inaccurate and  misleading the term professional is when applied to  the art of teaching.  Teachers are well paid for  their work. They don't need  claims of professionalism to  improve their negotiating  position. Such claims do a  disservice not only to themselves but to those they  serve. A good teacher deserves every cent he or she is  paid. The work is stressful  and demanding, subject to  criticism from within and  without. Giving that work a  mystic aura by hanging the  albatross of "professionalism" around its neck only  serves to confuse the issue.  Status, on the other hand, is  another problem. Most teachers would like to have then-  work more highly regarded.  In fact, where education is  considered important, teachers do have a high status.  In those communities where  education is not seen as  particularly important however, teaching is seen as just  another way to earn a living.  The whole idea of "professional" status has nothing  whatever to do with the way a  community regards its teachers. For teachers to assume  that they are professional and,  as a result expect to he highly  regarded and respected, is  silly. When teachers are loved  and respected as much as they  think they deserve (a condition  not likely to occur) you won't  hear the word "professional"  trotted out.  So, all of those teachers who  were offended by Mrs. Fleming's article should reconsider their bruised egos  and take a hard look at what  she was saying. We should all  get off the professional band  wagon and stay off it. We  should all (and I include myself in this category) have  much more faith and confidence in what we do and  not worry about how "professional" we are but concern  ourselves with how skillful we  are. Leave professionalism to  doctors and people who play  golf for money and wait  patiently for the day when a  grateful parent or a loving  former student invites us to  lunch.

The number and value of building permits issued in the Sunshine Coast  Regional District (excluding Gibsons and Sechelt} are presented for the period 1972-1979 in Appendix  Table VI-1.  The number of permits issued has ranged between about 600 and 700 during the past 7 years. A 35%  increase was recorded in 1973, the year of implementation for the Land (Commission Act that constrained  the rczoning of designated agricultural land throughout the Province. During 1976, a significant drop  occurred in permits issued, which was coincident with the raising of ferry rates to and from the Sunshine  CoasI.  The value of permits issued has risen fairly steadily from $4.1 million to $14.9 million, in current dollar  terms, an increase of 258% since 1972. The only year experiencing an absolute decline in total value was  1976. The average value per permit has also more than doubled since 1972.
