 LEGISLATIVE MflgAHY    81.1  |    PARLIAMENT BUIiOINGS  VICTORIA, B.C.  v8v 1x4  rrested at Texada demonstration  Four residents of the Sunshine Coast journeyed to Texada  Island on Tuesday, of last week to participate in the series of  demonstrations taking place there against the construction of  B.C. Hydro of the Cheekye-Dunsmuir power line. One ol them,  Iris Griffiths of Egmont, took her turn standing in front of the  bulldozer preparing an access road for the power line and was  arrested and charged with public mischief.  : The four demonstrators took the 10:15 am. ferry from Powell  River to Texada Island where they joined forces with the other  demonstrators scheduled to take part in the latest of a series of  formal demonstrations and peaceful protests.  In all, thirteen demonstrators were present at Tuesday's  demonstration at which Griffiths was arrested.  Right at the entrance to the site, said Griffiths, the group was  met by an employee of B.C. Hydro, reportedly an ex-RCMP  officer, named Gerry Young who distributed copies of thc  restraining order Hydro had been granted on June 18. Other  Hydro employees were present along with contractors on thc  project and their supporters.  The demonstrators proceeded by 4-whccl drive vehicles and  finally on foot to the site of clearing work. Once there they all  joined hand in silent prayer, which has been a tradition of  demonstrators at the site.  After the prayer the group broke out their banner which said  ir Power Line" and then the Egmont  ?  111 aiifcaay  housewife and mother stood in front of the bulldozer. The  foreman told the operator of the bulldozer to back away and clear  a few yards off. Griffiths repeated her symbolic act of protest at  the second location.  An RCM P officer approached her and asked her if she knew of  the injunction. Upon her reply in the affirmative she was told that  she was under arrest and charged with public mischief under the  Criminal Code.  Griffiths stressed to the Coast News that the arresting officer  was most polite as he gave her notice that she was to appear at the  Powell River police station for photographing and fingerprinting.  "There was no confrontation or hostility," said Griffiths, "and I  even accepted a lift away from the site from the foreman ofthe  construction crew, Ken Grieve of Comox. The construction firm  involved was Edgett Construction of Comox."  With Griffiths at the demonstration was her thirteen-year old  daughter Maureen. It was the third demonstration that they had  been to. The demonstrations according to Griffiths have all been  peaceful though one demonstrator, Brian Bayley, had his foot  hurt early in the demonstrations by the bulldozer and the presence  of supporters of the Hydro contractors had apparently been  occasioned by the exchange of heated words at the previous day's  demonstration.  Griffiths will appear in Powell River on September 8.   The following is an interview given Ihe Coast News by Griffiths  in Egmont last week:  Why did you get arrested - was it deliberate?  Yes, blocking the bulldozers on Texada was planned months  ago. Whenever Hydro started clearing thai one spot, and if the  B.C. Government still hadn't investigated whether the line is  needed or not, then the dozers would be blocked. Public support is  pretty strong there.  To get the whole mailer into the courts, you must be arrested.  You plead "not guilty", on grounds thai Hydro has no right 10  build the line. They bring evidence���expert witnesses throwing  doubt on thc need for thc line, showing thai they could get  electricity in other ways- that sort of thing. This techique  somtimes works, I hear.  So you've known for months that you'd be arrested?  No, just since lasl week. We have supported the demonstrations  all along, but when they were deciding to have one person per day  block the bulldozer, I realized there should be someone from Ihe  Sechelt Peninsula, so I pul myself down for Tuesday.  What does It feel like to face a bulldozer blade?  A .deep sadness, a sense of loss. I remember thinking "Whal a  way to talk lo your government!" Some fear, too. But I heard  friends clapping; you know, friends help a lot.  Do you really think this gesture will do any good?  Boy, I sure Ihoughl a lot about lhal, beforehand. Here all our  lives some of us have tried to uphold law and order. Now 1 risk a  criminal record, and for what? Can anybody stop Hydro?  On this particular power line, I don't know. But, if someone is  pushing through a project like this, and he finds opposition right  from beginning to end, maybe he'll think about that while he's  planning the next one. Who knows, it might tip the balance on  some doubtful project ofthe future. Then, too, what's life if you  don't stand up for something once in a while?  How do people react when they hear you got arrested?  It varies���amusing; painful; touching. Amusing when people  who know me as a community-club, committee-member citizen,  can't help goggling a little. I'd do the same in their place. Painful -  some good friends are distressed that I could be so foolishly  irresponsible to our growing family. That's hard to take, but I  think I am responsible. Being arrested is not the same as breaking  the law. Wc will all plead "nol guilty" of public mischief. I don'l  think we are guilty, either. Goodness knows we've tried every legal  avenue. I've even been in a delegation speaking lo the Minister of  Environment, asking for a public hearing.  The touching reactions are like a long-distance call from  relatives offering bail money.  The arrests seem to be over...what's next?  More demonstrations. Shifting from confrontation to  "information picketing" at Hydro offices and thc legislature. Our  trial should he interesling, too.   The Sunshine  Published at Gibsons, B.C.  15C per copy on news stands  Second Class,Mall Registration No. 4702  Serving the Sunshine Coast since 1945  Delivered to every address on the Coast.  August 26, 1980  Volume 34, Number 34  rnsiaMtoKHMtauM  Ferry committee runs aground  1  After months of correspondence and meetings, some wilh  senior B.C. Ferries staff in Victoria, the Ferry Advisory  Committee of the Sunshine Coast is right back where it started,  requesting a return to last year's Fall schedule with the addition of  a 7:30 - 7:40 am. ferry.  The committee and the regional board had recommended the  adoption ofthe second of two prospective schedules suggested by  the Corporation's Chief Operations Manager, G. Baldwin and  published in the Aug. 12 edition of the Coast News. The  recommendation, made in a letter dated Aug. 19 from the regional  board to the Corporation's Board of Director, was abruptly  withdrawn two days later when regional board Chairman David  Hunter was informed that the adoption ofthe new schedule would  seriously affect SMT bus service on the coast.  "Every sailing our buses arc on now is not on that schedule,"  SMTs Bill Hamilton told the Coast News, "It would literally shut  down any facsimile of the service we give now."  Hamilton said the company would not discontinue service if  such a schedule were adopted, but pointed out that they might be  ���.orced to do so by economic necessity.  "We carry 100,000 passengers a year," Hamilton said, "and our  schedules are based on what Ihe majority of those people want.  Historic public demand indicates that's when the people want to  travel."  . Hamilton pointed out that direct connections to Powell River  would be impossible and the freight service, on which many local  businesses depend, would also be affected.  Hamilton stated lhat the first he knew of the new schedules was  what he saw printed in Ihe Aug. 12 Coast News.  "I knew at a glance il wouldn't work out," Hamilton said.  Asked why no one had consulted with Sunshine Motor  Transport concerning thc new schedule's effect on service,  Metcalfe concerned about  employees' mental health  Alderman Metcalfe expressed his concern overthementalwell-  being of village poundkeepers because thc number of animals  destroyed under the euthanasian program is quite substantial. He  cited that out of 19 dogs picked up recently, five were claimed, two  were adopted and the remainder were put to sleep. Six dogs  picked up in Sechelt were also destroyed.  Although this method of animal control is the most humane,  Metcalfe felt that over a period it was mentally taxing on the dog  catcher. He asked council to consider that the job be rotated.  Discussion ceased when Alderman Trainor pointed out that  one ol the job requirements ol the poundkeeper was dog control  and this included euthanasia.  regional board Chairman David Hunter replied, "God only  knows. Back at our very first meeting with Bill Bouchard, the  Ferries Communications Manager, we were told that they were in  contact with all the agencies concerned."  "From now on," Hunter said, "SMT is on our list of people to  contact for input into any proposed changes. If the Ferries won't  do it, we will."  Hunter said that in addition to a letter advising the corporation  to disregard the Aug. 19 recommendation ofthe board, he has  spoken to Ken Sorko and requested a return to a schedule "much  the same as was in effect last year." Bill Hamilton of SMT has also  written to the Corporation's Board of Directors, pointing out the  effect major scheduling changes would have on service.  Hunter said he is also concerned about the Ferries' policy of  cancelling sailings to the Sunshine Coast in order to take the  pressure off the Nanaimo run from Horseshoe Bay and other  Ferries' policies.  "The figures they have show no overloads on the 9am. sailing,"  Hunter said, "and I've informed them that those figures are  wrong. The number of overheight vehicles on that sailing makes it' ���  impossible for them to use the elevated ramps and people atj  regularly left behind. Their figures show full sailings but Iftr  overloads."  Hunter said he was surprised by the lack of response locally to  the publication of the proposed new schedules.  "I didn't get any calls until the evening ofthe 19th," Hunter said,  "Since then I've discovered we may have more commuters up here  than we thought. I've got one person in every area now who's  responsible for finding out how things will affect people in their  area and reporting back before we made these decisions."  The B.C. Ferries Board of Directors meets this Monday to  make a decision on the new schedule.  ON THE INSIDE...

The letter, a copy of which was received by Gibsons council at  their meeting last Tuesday evening, indicates the ownership of a  number of craft and structures moored in the harbour, including  four steel scows, owned by Smitty's Barging and Towing, which  are employed transporting goods in the Howe Sound area.  The letter identifies the floating boathouse and shed as  belonging to Mike Fitzgerald of Gibsons and points out that the  deteriorated 10 x 40 foot float which has been moored in the  harbour for many years is not owned by Canada, though it may be  HMM^wMMM^^^taaM^IlM  The two ex-B.C. Ferries lifeboats, owned by the Navy League  of Canada, have already been moved and moored at Armour's  Beach. Harbour Master Harry Smith indicated la.i week that a  number of concrete anchors, placed on the harbour bed without  the approval ofthe Ministe. of Transport have been removed and  piled at the foot of the bluff.  Addressed to Larry Sorkin, Regional Manager of the Lands  Branch of the provincial Ministry of Lands, Parks and Housing,  Brooks' letter states that he has advised Gibsons council that "the  foreshore and bed of the harbour are under the control and  administration of your Minister," and recommends that Sorkin  attend a further meeting with council and representatives of  concerned citizens "to discuss the proposed course of action."  The meeting, scheduled for Sept. 4 at 9 am. in the municipal  offices, should clarify the question of jurisdiction over the  foreshore, which the municipality leases from the provincial  iimn niiiM'ni       11  Traffic was deloured last week as work commenced on Ihe    include a culvert with a grid lo assist spawning salmon to run up  *fif"Tiifit IfihifrMftrtr y~*rffif��rf��f'fttiiiff"1"'-,;// "���t���  For 35 years the most widely read Sunshine Coast newspaper!  ���������������  ma '��� ��� f  mm���v  mmmmm  ^mmm  tmmmmmmmmmmmm  ��� Sunshine jLp  <��CNA  Coast News, August 26, 1980  BLUE  RIBBON  AWARD  1978  A LOCALLY OWNED NEWSPAPER  Published al Gibsons, B.C. every  Tuesday, by Glassford Press Ltd.

Nancy Conway  Advertising Department  Allan Crane  Fran Berger  A matter of conscience  When citizens as sensible and as stable as  I ris Griffiths are labelled as public mischief  makers the rest of us should pause and  consider what is going on. Mrs. Griffiths is  but one of many who have protested  peacefully against the initial construction  phases of the Cheekye-Dunsmuir power  fine.  We have been over the arguments  against the line many times. We have  chronicled the opinions of experts other  than the experts purchased by B.C. Hydro  that question the need for the line. Wc have  speculated what the real use of this power  line is to be since the magnitude of it make*  it unlikely that Vancouver Island is the sole  cause of its construction.  The steamroller that is B.C. Hydro has  rolled on despite the outcries ofthe people.  It is likely to do so despite the actions of  Iris Griffiths and others who have  continued to protest and yet it must be  protested. Like many other development  in Canada's recent history we suspect that  the Cheekye-Dunsmuir power line has less  to do with Canadian needs than we are  being told. All the signs indicate that the  export of energy is to be Canada's future  role. It has been ordained elsewhere and  B.C. Hydro is the agent. When the power  from nuclear stations on Vancouver Island  is coursing along the Cheekye-Dunsmuir  line for sale south of the border we might  remember the protesters of the late  seventies and of I980 and wish that more of  us had been there with Iris Griffiths.  Passing the buck  The statements allegedly made by  Mayors Goddard and Koch in favour of  the new provincial Holiday Shopping  Regulation Act would seem to be strange  positions for free enterprisers to take. If  ever there was an unnecessary intervention  in the commercial life of the community  this would seem to be it and yet our local  leaders greet it with applause. Why?  In fact, one could travel far and fail to  find a better example of gutless buck-  passing on the part of government that this  new Act provides.  To begin with, the Lord's Day Act is a  federal law which cannot be utilized  without the consent of the provincial  Attorney General. Thus does the federal  government pass the buck. Now we have a  provincial Holiday Shopping Act which is  in effect unless municipalities pass a by-law  to the contrary. Thus does the provincial  government pass the buck.  The evil of rumours  The tragic death of Marnie Jamieson  last week was doubly regrettable. There  was in the first place the death of a young  girl, the snuffing out of a promising young  life, and the anguish that was caused her  family and friends. What we know for sure  has happened is terrible enough, God  knows.  What is also terrible is the effect that  such a tragedy has on others. First there  are the young and the old and the timid  who live with more fear now than they did  just a little while ago. Then there are the  aggressive and violent folks who tend to  sound their mouths off before they know  much about what they are talking about.  Put the two together, the mouthing off and  the climate of fear, and you have fertile soil  for the kind of baseless rumour current  recently.  The best thing we can do now for the  memory of Marnie Jamieson and the good  of the community is refrain from repeating  or listening to rumours born of violence or  fear. Speculation in matters such as this ;  can as readily be evil as idle.  ...from the files of the COAST NEWS  ff l^fl^feSl  FIVE YEARS AGO  Leader of the Social Credit opposition, Bill Bennett told 250 people who  attended a special Socred"function at  Sechelt's Peninsula Drive-in last  Thursday that, if elected, his party  would invite private insurance companies back into the province to  compete with ICBC. Bennett also told  the enthusiastic crowd that one of the  first things his government would do if  elected would be to repeal the  controversial Mining Act Bill 31.  Sechelt School Board announced  the appointment of Mr. L.P. Todd to the  position of Supervisor of Instruction  for Elementary and Secondary  Schools.

FIFTEEN YEARS AGO  No   Coast   News  was  published  between Aug. 26 and Sept. 2 in order  for the offices to be moved to new  premises behind the Bals Block.  TWENTY YEARS AGO  The coroner's jury hearing evidence  in the inquest into the deaths of four  people when the fishing boat Unimak  sank July 23 off Roberts Creek  commended all those who took part in  the attempt to rescue those trapped in  the upturned hull when the vessel  capsized.  Over 120 people owning property  along the West Sechelt highway  attended a meeting in the school hall to  be informed about the proposed water  system. All present were in favour of  Ihe proposition submitted by six  persons who have been working on the  project.  Large crowds watching the PNE  Parade applauded the Squarenaders  from Gibsons, who rode an improved  version of the winning float from  Gibsons July 1 parade.  TWENTY-FIVE YEARS AGO  Prosecutions will occur if any person  is found using water for sprinkling  purposes, members of Gibsons Village  Commission said this week. The threat  of prosecution was made when several  commissioners said they knew or knew  of people who were sprinkling in spite  of the regulations. Increased building  is putting a strain on the existing  system and low supplies of water  currently could create a serious fire  hazard, commissioners observed.  In connection with fire calls outside  the village, Commissioner Ballentine  moved that after Aug. 31 the phqne  office be instructed not to turn on the  fire alarm unless the fire is within the  municipal boundaries of the village  proper.  THIRTY YEARS AGO  The lightest vote ever saw passage of  Gibsons $7,000 water bylaw, with 26  out of an eligible 221 voters casting  their ballots in favour with 6 voting  against and one spoiled ballot for a  total of 33.  A new rural postal delivery route,  from Halfmoon Bay to Pender Harbour  has been announced by the Post Office  Department in Ottawa. E.B. Pratt,  Halfmoon Bay storekeeper, was the  successful bidder for the route.  THIRTY FIVE YEARS AGO  The Sechelt Motor Transport firm  has put into service a modern 35  passenger bus to serve increasing  business between Hopkins Landing  and Pender Harbour. It is stated that as  soon as the passenger ferry from  Gibsons to Horseshoe Bay begins, the  bus line will cooperate so that people  can make direct connections.

Peterson  jfHttwetm*  Musings  John Burnside  By the time that this offering  appears in print 1 will have  notched up another milestone  on the highway of the years,  It may seem to be an  insignificant portion or the  route that I have arrived at. I  mean, odes are written on the  subject of age and lyrics attest  to the splendours of youth but  little is said of the middle yearly  The lack of attention paid by  poets and other commentators  on the human condition would  almost lead one to believe that  these are the doldrum years.  And yet, in fact, these might  be the best of the years that  make man's lot. Thc fevers and  uncertainties of youth have  abated yet the energiesare little  diminished. The mind is clear  and firm without necessarily  being inflexible.  Approaches to the passage of  the years differ with the  personalities ofthe individuals  involved. Some prefer to ignore  them; others defiantly deny  their passage; and a third group  acknowledge their passing bul  quail pathetically before them.  In this third group, for  example, is friend George  Matthews. It is several years  now since virtually the whole  staff of Elphinstone Secondary  School had to unite to shepherd George through his  thirtieth year. It was a classic  case of a high school football  hero who had been so giddy  with the success of his youth  that he tried to retain it. We  bought George such birthday  gifts as coffins and corsets lhal  year and tried by the means of a  crash course in total debauch to  pole vault him halfway inlo his  thirties in Ihe course of a single  night so thai the leaving ofthe  twenties would no longer  trouble him.  Then there arc those who  defiantly defy the passage ol  the years. Such a one is U.S.  presidential candidate Ronald  Reagan. Reagan the politician  is a better tribute to the actor's  arts than Reagan the actor ever  was. An acid-tongued friend of  mine refers to him as the  Formaldehyde Kid and 1  myself wonder if Reagan will  suddenly grow old like the lady  who escaped from Shangri-La  when the skill of the makeup  artist is no longer sufficient.  What will be thc consternation  among thc youth-conscious  American voters when their  chosen dynamic leader suddenly and visibly ages twenty  years in the space of a few  months?  This is by no means an  academic question as Reagan  himself acknowledged w hen he  agreed on a procedure to be  followed lo relieve him of office  should he grow senile in the  presidency. Thc rigours of the  campaign trail and the demands of the office of president  of the United States have aged  dramatically much younger  men than Ronald Reagan and.  it is indeed almost inevitable  that, ifelected.hewillprovidea  dramatic example to us all  within his first term of the, self-  defeating futility of denying the  passage of the years.  Those who do not deny but  simply ignore the passage ofthe  years deceive only themselves.  The years are not deceived. The  accumulation of hurts which  marks the passage of mortal  time continues and the day  inevitably comes when such  deception is no longer possible.  As that master of contemplating mortality, A.E. Hous-  man, has it in his poem  Epitaph: "I'd face it as a wise  man would/ And train for ill  and not for good." A little  contemplation of mortality  year by year avoids the shock of  confrontation and such is my  preferred approach.  And so as the birthdays roll  by do 1 lake stock of the.  situation and this year while I  acknowledge that forty-two is  not twenty-two, it is nonetheless a fine age to be. The  little aches and pains of  accumulated hurt are not  sufficient to be noted by any  except the most microscopic  examiner. On the other hand  there are some destructive  habits which the body is  indicating clearly simply cannot longer be tolerated.  The cigarettes are gone.  Almost eight weeks of abstinence from nicotine has  revealed a suspected truth, that  being that some of thc aspects  of accumulated injury can be  rapidly and easily reversed.  Indeed, stepping smoking after  about twenty years of it has thc  delightful illusion of youth  rediscovered. There is the  improvement, almost immediate in one's appearance which  draws comment from acquaintances. There is the improved  zest which one brings to  virtually everything. Why, I  had a pork chop the other day  which was by far the best pork  chop that I have enjoyed since  the early sixties. Even the  illusion of the reversal of the  inevitable march to the grave is  a pleasing thing.  Another acquired vice whose  days may be numbered if mine  are to be extended is the  unhallowed practice of alcohol  absorption. The present beer  strike would seem to be as  appropriate a time as any for  some consideration on my part  for defeating this second  monster. Stomach lining has its  own irrefutable logic and mine  is presenting its case.  This particular year's stock  taking, then, is not without its  awareness that time is taking its  toll and that some things must  be left behind. There is stijl,  however, the affirmation that  life is sweet and that the  instrument of appreciation of  that fact is the body which must  be maintained and cared for.  None of the foregoing ranks  among the world's great discoveries nor is it being so  presented, lt is merely the  stock-taking of a middle-aged  gentleman with an appreciation both for the frailty and thc  sweetness of life and a hunger  still unrequited both for thc  years and the wisdom of thc  years.  With Rue My Heart  Is Laden  With rue my heart is laden  For golden friends I had,  For many a rose-lipt maiden  And many a lightfoot lad  By brooks too broad for leaping  The lightfoot boys are laid;  The rose-lipt girls are sleeping  Infields where roses fade.  A.E. Housman  Slings & Arrows V  fo  George Matthews  My dear old friend and  editor, John Burnside, chewed  up my column on American  political life last week and spat  out an interesting piece of his  own. You'd think any sensible  person would take a hint and  go back to writing human  interest stories but I never was  a fast learner. In fact I guess  the only thing I learned from  the experience was the answer  to the question of why the  English never gave the Scots  home rule. In any case, as a  little more grist for the  Burnsidian mill I thought I'd  take shot at an explanation  of the constitutional conference issue.  First of all, I think the whole  constitutional question is a  terrible waste of lime and  energy. Whenever you see  politicians posturing as statesmen, you know something's  wrong. These fellows were  elected to enact laws and  develop proposals to get  people back to work, to deal  with inflation, and to strengthen the economic condition ofthe land. Instead, we  find them making pompous  pronouncements on issues of  provincial rights and the  integrity ofthe nation. There's  no doubt that these high  blown philosophical questions  make for better sounding  speeches than anything inflation or unemployment could  provide but one wonders if  maybe their fascination with  these ideas is a consequence  of their inability to deal with  the more important, albeit  mundane, problems facing the  country. The other thing of  course, and one suspects Mr.  Trudeau's motives here, is  that many of these men have  been seduced by the prospect  of making asterisks of themselves in some history book.  At the centre of the constitutional debate is the issue  of authority. Now most people  believe that authority is some  mystical power emanating  from the laws and leadership  ofthe country. On first glance  it appears to be some power  residing in the hands of those  at the top and dispersed with  some kind of God-given right  down amongst the people who  are obliged to obey. The fact  is that with all of their pious  pronouncements, the politicians know this just isn't so.  They are fully aware that  authority resides not at the top  of the heap but with the  bottom, with the demos, the  mob. It is from us petty folks  that the real authority flows  and while they would never  admit to the fact, the first  ministers  know and   under  stand this political fact of life.  That fact, more than anything explains why the pro.  vincial premiers and the  federal government have been  at one another's throats these  past six months, and more  than that, why the bloodletting has been so public.  These leaders have been so  outspoken because.they aren't:  quite sure yet what the people  are thinking and, more importantly, what we will accept.  If authority was a simple  matter of passing laws and  assuming they will be obeyed,  the federal government, would  have whipped up a -constitution years ago. They  would have written up the  document and said, "Here is  your constitution people, obey  its laws and principles because we are in authority and  we say this must be so,"  No leader in his right mind  is so naive as to believe this  could happen.  The fact of the matter is that  the Canadian constitution, the  bill of rights, the common  goals and purpose of thc  country already exists. It  resides in the collective  consciousness of the people  and all the political speechifying is simply an a tempt on  the part of the leadei s to tease  out that collective consciousness so it can be stated and  written down. The provincial  leaders are listening a lot  harder than they are talking.  They arc trying to figure out;  just exactly what the people  will accept. Of course if they  ever do figure it out and get  it written down they will take  the credit along with the  historical footnote.  I'm nol exactly sure what  purpose will be served in  writing down the common  principle of our people.  Certainly if they had been  written in 1920 or 1940 or  1960 they would not have  served as well for 1980.  Our country, and our people  have changed a great deal and  what our grandfathers would  have accepted is no doubt  much different than what we  will accept.  No matter what it is that our  leaders tell us we believe  in, one hopes that it will  satiate their lust for statesmanship. Perhaps when the  constitutional issue has been  resolved our leaders will get  back to following us again.  Maybe at best we can hope  that after going through the  exercise, the politicians will  come to know us well enough  that they will be able to serve  our interests better.  mmm  m^m* m  Coast News, August 26, 1980  SuperAfolu  SUNNYCREST CENTRE  Better���\bu Bet  100% Locally Owned & Operated  "What America needs now is a return to old spiritual values". . . .  Letters to the Editor  Pygmies with long shadows  Editor:  The public "right to know"  begs that the reported sayings  of Chairman Dave are quite  unfounded, inasmuch as he  appears to require a vote  to vote on a motion (quite daft)  in order to adhere to the  childishly simple rules governing regional board voting,  i.e. proportional, mandatory  under the Municipal Act  which he rules "out of order"  as "we have never done it  like that before", also untrue.  The recently issued copy of  the act has quietly deleted  the two third majority rule  except for the setting of  meetings.  According to chairman ���  Dave's sayings the intent of  the municipal act has been  perverted now Director "C"  Sechelt Alderman Lee has four  votes is pure kneejerk ma-  larkey. Sechelt has and had  one vote. Area "C" has and  had three votes. From Chairman Dave's arithmetic Lee  has four Sechelt votes and  presumably four "C" votes,  total eight votes. The fact is  Lee will vote three with Aid.  Stelck's one and vice versa  where the mutual interests of  "C" and Sechelt are involved.  The Municipal Act needs no  interpretation, is written in  simple English, and will not  be gainsaid or dictatorily  refuted by a chairman who so  frequently appears not to be  very well versed in its contents.  Speaking of which, no  public report appeared of my  challenge of the Shah of Iran  style entourage taken to  Victoria, which could have  done by one person fit to sit  in the board room, and cost us  $500 more than needed,  prompting a Chairman Dave  saying "as long as I am  Chairman I will take who I  like". Such Maypole games  would not be harmful if it did  not prompt such uneasy  questions as how much public  money was wasted, and if we  can spare two highly paid  public servants away from  their desks, did we need them  in the first place?  The reported remarks of  past Alderman Hall's re  Lee's clean political hands, as  objectionable, is a very curious insight. Plato echoed by  Disraeli said "the cleverest  thing in politics is to be  honest and straight". Recently Area "C" and Sechelt  electors, God bless them,  seem to have known this.

In particular we would like  to thank thc Sunshine Coast  Regional District for making  available Iheir various maps,  the Sechelt Senior Citizens  Association and the Pender  Harbour Legion for the use of  their halls for command posts  and to Diane Strom and her  group for organizing so many  volunteers from thc Gibsons  area.

The Director of Vancouver  Crisis Center. Mr. Gary Mavis,  suggests that thc need be  assessed now. Crisis calls from  the coast arc increasing to the  Vancouver Crisis Center which  is overloaded with local calls.  It is vital that lonely,  troubled and depressed people  have a communication link.  The long-distance call to the  burdened Vancouver Crisis  Center is not the answer for thc  coast.

The village of Minstrel  Island lies at the mouth of  Knight Inlet near Tribune  Channel, 200 odd miles north  of Vancouver. It is scarcely a  prepossessing place, despite  its importance as a steamship  stop, mail pick-up, supply  depot and watering hole for  the many gyppo camps that  fan out around it. There just  isn't much to this limberlost  hamlet sulking in its small,  bottle-cluttered bay: an arthritic hotel dating back to the  turn of the century; an all-  purpose general-store of newer vintage; two miniscule  cafes; a battered, barn-like  community-hall; a clutter of  ragamuffin shacks and shanties. But if Minstrel is short on  any sort of imposing facade, it  is long on legend.  The very name of the place  is reputed to have been coined  when a blackface minstrel  troupe was stranded here in  the early days. Proponents of  this whimsical theory, cite  other place names in the area  such as Bones Bay and Negro  Point. However apocryphal  this yarn may be, it is a  colourful one to juggle with.  There are many such yarns  bruited about in the small,  no-frills beer-parlour, heart of  Minstrel's sketchy social life.  Here the loggers and fishermen gather to drink unchilled  hcer from the bottle, butt their  roll-your-owns in sardine-tin  ash-trays and keep the tall  tales coming. Most of the  stories deal with the exploits  of various eccentric characters  who have landed up in these  parts at one time or another.  Pages from a Life-Log  Peter Trower  Some were brawlers and one  old-timer recalls a thunderous  set-to between the famous  logger, Johnny on the Spot  and a huge faller, that began  in the bar and ended on the  dock with Johnny bloodily  triumphant. But most were  known for other feats and.  peculiarities apart from fighting ability. There was the  bearded recluse who showed  up once a month for supplies  and always paid for them with  a brand new hundred-dollar  bill. It was rumoured that he  either forged them or was  living on the profits of some  forgotten robbery. No one,  including the police, ever  learned the truth.  And there was the garrulous  old boozer who lurched into  the pub one night, claiming  that he had been attacked  by a cougar and had dispatched it with nothing but a  stick. The man in question was  known to be a notorious liar  and his claim was scornfully  dismissed. The next day  however, someone decided to  check on his story and the  body of the dead cat was,  discovered along a trail. It  had indeed been slain with an  improvised club and the man  became something of a hero  for a time.  Minstrel Island even boasts  its own home-grown murder  story. It involves a fisherman  called Spitz. Spitz, by all  accounts a rough and drunken  man, lived aboard his grubby  Green & Flowering Plants,  Cut  Flowers & Arrangements.  Dried Flowers, Gifts.  Deliveries across Ihe Peninsula  0  Gibsons  SoaJum Jlotwu S Giki  886-2316  boat with an Indian woman  whom he was given to mistreating when in his cups.  Word of this situation reached  the woman's relatives in Alert  Bay and several of the men  decided to right it. They  arrived in Minstrel one night  and waylaid the fisherman. It  is unlikely that more than a  beating was actually intended  but in the ensuing struggle,  Spitz was killed. The Indians  apparently panicked, took, the  body aboard their own boat  and threw it overboard several  miles away. They neglected  to weight it down and when  the tide changed, the corpse  drifted sure as a homing  pigeon, right back to Minstrel  where it was found bobbing  incriminatingly beside the  dock, the following day.  Despite this, there were no  witnesses to the killing and  the case remained unsolved  for almost twenty years. At  that time, one of the Indians  involved decided to confess for  reasons of his own and the  whole business came to light.  No charges were ever laid.  Such are the legends of  Minstrel. There are many  more.  Davie Grogan is neither a  brawler, a cougar-slayer nor  a murder victim but he is  destined to achieve a certain  minor notoriety in the Minstrel Island annals for all that.  It is a late-fall day in 1950  and I am sitting in the drab  beer-parlour with its bare,  scarred, pictureless walls. My  companion is a newly-immigrated Irishman called Paddy  Flynn and though you'd never  guess it, we are both looking  for work. The A-frame show at  which we were both employed  until a few days ago has been  shut down for snow. It is still  over a month to Christmas and  I am hoping to augment my  winter stake with a few more  weeks   at  some   lower-level  camp. The Minstrel pub  functions as a sort of unofficial  hiring-agency for the sixty-  odd gyppos in the near-  vicinity. But the boys are  hanging tough this close to  the year's end and the prospects are not too rosy. I figure  I will hang around one more  day and then head for Vancouver.  It is a Tuesday and the bar  is almost deserted except for  a couple of fishermen arguing  half-heartedly in one corner  and Abie Stein, the unlikely  Jewish owner, presiding glumly behind his makeshift  bar. "Ah, she's not after  being like the pubs at home"  observes my Irish friend'with  a sigh.  A raffish-looking character  enters with a thirsty look.  I have noticed him around the  village before. He is somewhere in his forties, a lean,  lank-haired man with a wea-  therbeaten face full of wry  humour. Paddy evidently  knows him. "About time you  was up, Grogan"he says.  "Sit yerself down and buy a  round."  I assume he is just another  logger in the same boat as  ourselves but it turns out that  Davie Grogan is a businessman of sorts. "Hell, I've had  enough ofthe goddam bush",  he declares. "I'm running that  restoorant across the bay now.  Matter of fact, I'm looking for  a short-order cook. Either one  of you boys be interested?"  "Not me", says Paddy.  "I've got a line on a camp-  watching job for the winter.  Don't know about me friend  here."  "Christ! I'm no cook",  I protest.  "Nothing to her, son",  insists Grogan. "Just bacon  and eggs mostly and the odd  can of Campbell's soup.  Ain't no goormays around  this goddam place I"  I continue to protest my  inadequacies but Grogan is  tenacious. After a few more  beers, I find I have been  talked into taking a stab at  it.

At the Twilight  Wednesday, Thursday and  Friday this week the Twilight  Theatre features "Hie Holly-  wood Knights", an outrageous comedy in the tradition of  the overwhelmingly successful  American Graflttl.  The Hollywood KnlghU is  set in 1965 and recounts the  uproarious events of a Hallowe'en night as the "Hollywood Knights", a typical "car  club" ofthe Sixties, gets even  with the Beverley Hills Home  Owners Association for having  razed the club's hangout,  Tubby's Drive-In.  Starring newcomer Robert  Wuhl and Tony Danza of the  popular TV series T��l,' The  Hollywood Knights is sure to  strike a responsive chord in  anyone who spent a good  portion of their youth sitting in  the parking-lots of places like  Tubby's, comparing chrome-  laden hot rods, munching  french-fries and feeling misunderstood.  This Columbia Pictures  release also features Fran  Drescher, Moosie Drier, Leigh  French and Richard Schaal.  As with American Graflttl, the  soundtrack of The Hollywood  Knights, a compilation of  rock-n-roll hits of the middle  Sixties, will be released by  Casablanca Records.  The Hollywood Knights is  rated R and carries a warning:  Frequent coarse language;  some nudity and suggestive  scenes.  From Saturday August 30 to  Tuesday September 2, the  Twilight Theatre features The  Octagon, starring Chuck Nor-  ris, Lee Van Clcef and Karen  Carlson.  Audiences will recognize  Van Cleef as the snake-eyed  villain who tangled with Clint  Eastwood in a series of  successful "spaghetti- westerns", Like Bruce Dern,  Van Cleef is a vastly underrated character actor who has  been buried in two dimensional villainous roles by  Hollywood for years. Only in  recent years has he begun to  get meatier, if still villainous,  roles that enable him to  demonstrate his range as an  actor.  In The Octagon Van Cleef is  teamed with Chuck Norris,  another veteran of action  pictures of a slightly different  genre. Norris has played a  number of lead roles in  "samurai westerns", which  feature oriental martial arts in  place of the familiar blazing  six-guns.  In The Octagon Norris pits  his skills against a mysterious  organization resembling the  ancient Japanese "ninjas"  who were mercenary masters  of a wide range of martial arts  and unusual weapons.  The Octagon will have a  strong appeal for martial arts  fans, but carries the warning:  Frequent violence and occasional nudity. Not suitable  for children.

Off the shelf  A book from our backyard  Coast News, August 26, 1980  by John Moore  John Nichols' The MUagro  Beanfleld Wv is one of those  novels you wish would never  end. It's been around since  1974, when it was originally  published by Random House,  but I missed it on its first  go-round and still didn't pay  any attention when it was  issued in paperback by Ballan-  tine Books in 1976.  I've reached the point  where the bi-annual tidal wave  of trash issued in paperback  sends me climbing to the  library rafters until the flood  recedes and I leave it to my  friends to beachcomb the  racks for salvageable reading  matter. In this case, The  MUagro Beanfleld War was  recommended by Richard  Abrams and Allan Crane  within a week of one another.  Briefly, for the novel runs to  some 630 pages, the story is  set in the southwestern United  States, in the small town of  Milagro, where the traditional  water rights of the Chicano  subsistence farmers in the  northern part of the state have  been systematically eroded or  legally stolen by a cabal of  developers working hand-in-  glove with the state water  engineer and the governor.  Originally, the water was  required to serve large commercial farms in the irrigated  deserts to the south, but the  latest dam planned for the  area involves the creation of  a water district that will see  the taxes of the poor Chicano  population in effect paying  for a water system that will  enable local millionaire developer Ladd Devine the  Third to create a lush resort  and golf course on land bought  for a song from Chicano  farmers who lost their water  rights in the legal shuffle.  Everything is rolling along  smoothly for the developers,  with the Chicanos resentful  but resigned to their lot, until  one of their number, thirty-six  year old handyman, hustler  and n'er-do-well, Joe Mon-  dragon, out of sheer perversity as much as anything  else, takes a hoe in hand and  begins to illegally irrigate  his father's old beanfleld.  The developers, bureaucrats and politicians are  quicker to understand the  symbolic significance of this  lousy acre of beans than the  people of Milagro, whose  initial reaction ranges from  "Ai, Chihuahua!" to "What's  that little half-pint son of a  bitch want to cause so much  trouble for?"  The developers and politicians decide to move  cautiously and clandestinely,  fearful of creating a martyr  around whom the populace  might rally. They could hardly  move more cautiously than the  largely illiterate and suspicious people of Milagro,  and the result is a hilarious  phoney-war of ineptitude and  lunatic guerrilla tactics that  had me laughing out loud as  I haven't done since reading  Catch 22.  The plot of The Milagro  Beanfleld War is determined  largely by the characters  themselves. The fiesty maniac  Joe Mondragon, an unwilling  hero and even more unwilling  martyr of the "beanfleld  war", is regularly eclipsed by  such characters as Amarante  Cordova, the ninety odd year  old alcoholic former sheriff of  Milagro who has obstinately  survived almost every disease  known to man, outlived  most of his children, and still  proves to be a crackshot with  an old Colt Peacemaker he's  barely strong enough to aim.  Foremost among the cast of  subsidiary characters are Sef-  erino Pacheco and his enormous sow; Scferino is perpetually in search of his  beloved but errant pig whose  destructiveness, agressive-  ness and indestructibility are  legendary in the community.  Pacheco's pig, which reappears as a running gag in  the novel, also turns out to be  the catalyst in the "beanfleld  war".  Add to that Onofre Martinez, the one-armed Staur'o-  lite Baron with the vicious  three-legged German Shepherd, who persistently and  deliberately violates the towns  one parking-meter and tears  up the tickets and whose  missing arm, which he claims  was eaten by butterflies  has a life of its own.  Known as "El Brazo Onofre", the invisible arm is  Milagro's chief gremlin. Used  by parents to frighten children  into good behaviour, the  ghostly arm also has some  other eerie habits, like playing  boogie-woogie piano, writing  threatening letters to Ladd  Devine the Third and dabbling  in illegal midnight beanfleld  irrigation.  The MUagro Beanfleld War  isn't just a funny book: it's  a hopeful and compassionate  portrait of disadvantaged,  disunited people finding the  courage to fight a battle  even they don't think they can  win and discovering that the  only thing that beats a royal  flush is a damn good bluff.  All for now.  by George Cooper  Timmy the West Coast Tug by  Jeremy Moray. Illustrated by  Dee Gale. Freedom 79 Publications, Vancouver. L980  $6.95.  A children's book set right in  our own saltwater backyard  and illustrated with more than  a dozen colour plates is a good  step in the development of  book publishing on our west  coast. But apart from the  unique setting the story text by  Moray does not measure up to  even the least demanding  criteria.  Moray has allowed three or  four of his characters to  shoulder Timmy, his main  character, right out of the plot  picture. Timmy needs to be in  full control of his captain and  crew who he has some use for,  and certainly ofthe hangers-on  like Simon thc Seagull, and  Matilda, the cat. How else can  a main character resolve the  difficulties he runs into? But the  plot is quite bland, like cream  of wheat without sugar, and  even then the minor characters  guide Timmy through his  difficulties. One might suspect  Moray is more interested in  producing a profitable series  than he is devoted to entertaining children. He has yet to  learn the story-teller's art.  The illustrations, on the  other hand, bring the animal  Carefree gardening  by Sandy Loam  Most gardeners are considering their gardens right  now with a critical eye.

They are reliable in the garden  no matter what the weather  situation and will last weeks  as cut flowers, indoors.  They are a regular stand-by  mast for every garden. This  year and last, most of the  plant shops were offering  the blasted 'double' Marguerite which looks and acts like  a small Chrysanthemum. Unless the plant has a flower you  can see when you are buying,  this mix-up is difficult to avoid  as the leaves are almost  identical. The double Marguerite has long twisted  sloppy stems and it flops  over immediately into neighbouring plants. It does not  Astrology cont'd  ment   with  co-worker  looks  intense, risky, exciting.

PISCES (Feb. 19 - Mar. 20)  Looks like your personal  opinions, religious or spiritual  beliefs may be subject to  unnecessary probing and analysis.

Loved one or close  associate is ready to discuss  strengths and weaknesses ofthe  relationship you both share.  even come close to the perfection of the single, either as  a garden plant or as a cut  flower. This Marguerite mix-  up began last year and  worsened this year. By worsened, I mean, I And several  in my own garden in spite of  being aware of the problem  and on guard in doing my  selecting. There is simply  no way to judge by leaf alone  and the Plant shop people  were as confused as anyone,  selling one for the other and  labelling all "Marguerite".  Next year I hope they will  label 'single' or 'double' or  better yet do not seed for any  of the doubles. The same  should go for the wholesalers.  Please.  Autumn is a good time to  purchase and plant spring  flowering shrubs. The soil is  still warm and they will have  plenty of time to establish  their roots and settle in for  spring blooming. For the truly  Fatality  Former local boy Billy Ray  Fewell, aged 16 years, was  instantly killed on Friday  August 22, at I pm. when water  skiing behind his uncle's boat.  Another boat struck him after  he had fallen in the water.  A memorial service was held  Sunday in Glad Tidings Temple in Vancouver. Billy attended school at Temple Academy.  He lived in Gibsons off and  on for twelve years.  lazy gardener shrub gardening requires no flower  beds and very little edging, if  any, and you will get plenty of  colour each and every spring.  Budgets must be considered  and since we all go overboard  in our spring buying it is wise  to pick up shrubs and evergreens in the fall and reserve  spring money for extravagance with annuals and perennials.  Now is a good time for  splitting and dividing perennial plants including peonies and you will be sure not  to lose a season's flowering.  I hope everyone has noticed  our magnificent Summer Lilacs. They are a tall many  flowered wild shrub with long  purple lilac-like blooms. If  looked at close up each tiny  purple flower has a minute  flaming orange heart. This is  a Tibetan butterfly bush  and will spread nicely if  pruned after flowering. We  are very fortunaie to have  these lovely shrubs growing  wild along our coast.

The Welcome Beach Hall  was the scene of a very happy  evening on Sat. Aug. 16th  when some seventy five family  members and guests gathered  to share the 25th wedding  anniversary of Keith and Olive  Comyn of Welcome Woods.  Master of Ceremonies for the  evening was Olive's brother  Peter Walcott from Delta  who welcomed the guests  as they sat down to enjoy a  delicious dinner which had  been prepared by a group of  the ladies of the Welcome  Beach Community Assocn.  Oldest son David Marshall of  Vernon while proposing the  toast to his parents gave a  very moving and humorous  little talk on the years that  Olive and Keith had shared  with him and brother Ron.  Relatives and friends had  come from Vernon, Kamloops,  Everett, Linwood, Vancouver  and Calgary and it wasn 't long  before everyone present felt  as though they were all  members ofthe family.  The happy couple were  presented with a small travel  case containing the gift from  those present which was a  sum of money to help towards  a trip for Keith and Olive to  Olive's homeland - England.  This has been a dream that  Olive has had for many years  and everyone present would  be happy to see this come to  pass.  After dinner entertainment  was provided by Paul Hansen  who played accordion for  dancing and singing to wind  up a most delightful evening.  Keith and Olive would like to  express their thanks to all who  took part in the celebration  with special mention of the  ladies who had been responsible for the lovely meal  and to Carmen Grassie who  had done such a beautiful job  of the floral arrangements on  the tables and the exquisite  settings ofthe head table.  Fall Activities Planned.  It's that time of year when  things are getting going  again for winter activities in  the area. Seems like there has  been hardly any summer and  here we are planning for the  long winter nights.  The Halfmoon Bay Hospital  Auxiliary will be meeting for  the first time since June.  Volunteer work has continued  throughout the summer even  although the group has not  met officially. However, the  first meeting is scheduled for  Tuesday Sept. 2nd at 8 p.m.  in the Welcome Beach Hall.  Normally this group meets  on the first Monday of each  month but due to the Labour  Day holiday it has been  changed for this one occasion.  It is hoped that all members  will attend this meeting as  there is much planning to be  done and the help and cooperation of everyone is really  needed. It would also be a  good opportunity for any new  residents to come and meet  your neighbours and to decide  if you would like to join the  Auxiliary. The group is always  happy to welcome new members and this is a very good  way of making new friends  and of becoming part of the  community. So don't forget -  Tuesday Sept. 1st at 8 p.m.  The Welcome Beach Community Association directors  held their meeting last week to  discuss some activities for the  season. Roy Hill will once  again be in charge of the  shuffleboard events, Keith  Comyn will take care of carpet  bowling and the ladies auxiliary will be planning the social  functions for the season.  There are also plans for a  possible bingo night once a  month as well as talk of one  evening a month for card  games. Thea Leuchte is once  again lining up the films for  the season and the first of  these will be shown on the  Thursday of Sept. 25th. There  will be more information  coming your way just as soon  as plans are finalized.  Likewise you will be hearing  more about a new programme  due to start in Sept. This will  be a fitness type of class for  the "Over fifty" ladies of the  area who would like to trim  up their bodies and enjoy the  process. The programme is  called "Body Newness" and  is designed to help us get in  touch again and to gently  re-supple the muscles. This  sounds like a very exciting  programme and I shall give  you more information as to  dates and times. Suffice at  present to say that we are very  lucky to be able to have a  highly qualified infractor by  the name of Verity Purdy of  Brooks Cove who is a former  member ofthe Royal Academy  of Dance in London England  and a member of the Imperial  Society of Teachers of Dancing. The classes will be held  at "The Hall" and there will  be limited space so early  registration is advisable.  Local  weather  Weather August 16-22,1980  Did you get caught in the  August 17th thunderstorm?  It broke suddenly, just when it  seemed the rain would let up,  accompanied by squally winds  and heavy rain. The storm  yielded l'/> cms precipitation  but otherwise it was a dry  week until Friday evening's  shower.  August 16-22 last year was  as wet, 1.92 cm to this week's  1.92 cm but the days were  mostly sunny.   ���  Thus the temperatures were  higher last year, averaging  21.5C daytime high to this  year's 19.5C with overnight  lows of 14.5C to this year's  11.5C. On two nights this  week the temperature dropped to 10.0C and Tuesday was  the warmest day at 21.0C.  Precipitation this year to date  is 66.37 cm, ten centimetres  more than at the same time  last year.  CHANNEL TEN GIBSONS  WEDNESDAY.

McRae stated that the Water  Rights Branch had indicated  that they would waive the setback requirement from the  creek, if the west side of the  building were to be erected two  feet above the flood level. The  Planner recommended that a  written approval should be  obtained from the Waters  Rights Branch before this was  discussed further.  There is still a deficiency of  14 parking spaces allowed for  in the plans. This is a result of  12 1/2 of the parking spots  being delegated to small vehicles. As the committee has  already made a concession of  20 parking spaces associated  with the banquet room facilities, it was felt that they should  look into other zoning by-laws  to determine a proper allowable percentage for small cars.  Robert Reid the owner ofthe  site ofthe old pool hall,advised  the planning committee that he  had a potential buyer for his  townhouse project and he  wished to continue with his  application for a foreshore  lease.  It was felt lhat since Reid was  selling the property, the application for the lease should not  be given approval, lt was noted  by Mayor Goddard at a later  council meeting, that the lease  was not turned down. It was  simply not given approval  under the present circumstances.  Volunteers needed  "The Extented Care Unit at  St. Mary's is looking for  volunteers to come share their  talents and skills.

FEDERAL  BUSINESS  DEVELOPMENT BANK  145 West 15th Street,   North Vancouver, B.C    980-6571  FVnder opinion  Coast News, August 26, 1980  bv Robi Peter*  What is a PFD you say?  It's a personal flotation  device, in other words a life-  jacket or life preserver.  With the warm weather  here this week it's a good time  to see if your PFDs will hold  you up when needed.  If it's your size and has  the correct buoyancy your  head and top of shoulders  should be out of the water. If  not, you need a new one.  If you have small children  it is especially important that  the devices fit well and hold  the head out of water, lt is  a good idea to get a child used  to being in a PFD in water.  We did a small experiment  at the pool this spring with our  parent and tots class. We  asked the parents to bring  the PFD they used on the boat  and test them. The findings  were quite surprising - One  almost new vest on one of the  children did not keep the child  far enough out of water to be  any use, also there was the  possibility of the child rolling  forward and floating face  down. Another one was too  big. It almost slipped off and  over the child's head. One of  the best types were with  collars (held even an 8-months  head up beautifully) it also  had a strap back to front  between legs to prevent it  slipping up.  One thing to remember,  this type of PFD more commonly known as a "Mae  West'' is fine in warm weather  where the water temperature  is around 75-80 degrees.  But the usual water temperature around Pender  Harbour and coast, except for  a few occasions never gets  that high. If a body has to  survive in water below 50  degrees for more than an hour  it just might not make it.  Sad as it may seem ��� your PFD  held you up, but you died from  exposure. Experiments at the  University of Victoria have  proven that thermal jackets  can help you survive around  9-10 hours longer than ordinary PFDs.  It is something to think  about next time you need to  replace the PFDs in your boat.  The expense will be worth it,  not only for your peace of  mind. Your life could depend  on it.  In the last few years new  findings in Water Safety have  occurred: such as the h.e.  l.p. position and relaxing  strokes such as travel stroke  and drownproofing to help you  survive. These and more will  be taught at the pool in  September, most likely in a  family survival class. Phone  the pool in September or  watch the papers.

School phobia: reluctant children  need understanding from all concerned  bv Fn  Fl  rniiiiy  At this time of year when the  summer holidays begin to be  just a little boring, most  children begin to look forward  with eager anticipation to the  start-up of school. New clothes,  new shoes, brand new pencils  ,nd crayons, packages of  exercise books which have  never been used, perhaps a new  lunch kit, all promise an  exciting year of social interaction and learning.  But for a small number of  little ones, and some not so  little, thc opening of school  hangs over their heads like a  threat of doom. Some begin to  be short-tempered, and cry a  lot over small things. Some  begin nightmares, forget their  toilet-training, and behave in  ways absolutely unacceptable  to their puzzled parents. Teenagers become hostile and uncooperative; nothing pleases  them.  Some of these children will  be suffering from a syndrome  which is called "school phobia". It is a genuine and deep-  centred fear of and aversion  toward school. Distraught  parents may try bribes, punishment, threats, lo no avail.  Sometimes great family quarrels develop, with family  members taking sides and  supporting one type of treatment or another.  Some times the parent begins  to question his or her own role  in bringing up Ihis child. Their  own consequent self-doubts  only make the child feel more  insecure, and the situation  worsens.  There are three cardinal  factors in school phobia. First,  the child is acutely anxious,  and depressed. Second, his  mother, or parents also become  anxious and depressed. Third,  ihe problem has been going on  since early childhood and is  getting worse. Usually the  parent and child need professional help to overcome Ihis  developing pattern of refusal  and frustration.  Since the child is suffering,  the parent must seek help. The  principal of the child's school  may be the first professional to  approach. Thai person may be  able lo arrange a visit by parent  and child to thc empty school,  before school Marls. A quiet  walk around, a friendly chat.  may help. A friendly visit to thc  teacher's home, or a one-to-one  conference in the empty school  may help. If the teacher can  involve the child in a special  opening day task, so much the  better. This will give him (or  her) something to look forward  to.  Trying to go over the past to  determine what began the  attitude may be unproductive.  Children are future-oriented,  and need to look forward to  pleasant events. This may be  helpful in mild or newly  developing cases.  However, if the child continues   to act  out  and   rebel  against the start-up of school,  thc office of the school board  should be contacted for specific  counselling. A case history of  the child's school performance  bolh academic and social  should be studied. All impediments to his learning and  socializing should be considered. Does he have a reading  problem? Is he too old or too  young for his grade? Is he  clinging to home because of  some parental situation which  he does not want to leave? Is he  being teased unreasonably?  Does he "bus" to school? Does  Ihis create problems for him? In  other words, the behaviors and  interactions of this child must  be studied and considered,  until some clues appear as to  why he fears or hates school.  He must know that his  parents, the school staff, and all  the adults in his life are anxious  to help. This means a stifling of  criticism, no matter how tempting it is to indulge in some well  phrased home truths. Patience  is the key-note in dealing with  disturbed children. That and a  lot of love and understanding  from all concerned will usually  win the day.  Next week: The child who  cannot read.

The  papers and television news are full of  all kinds of things that are of earth  shattering importance, so they say,  when in fact our most important asset  and concern should be our children.  Without them and their ability to guide  and control their destinies, there is no  future. All the oil or gold in the world  will mean very little. We must make  every effort to protect and guide them.  A good start would be to eliminate the  word "permissive" from our  vocabulary, to teach and instruct, and  to earn the respect of our children  which, in turn, will give them much-  needed respect for themselves, for  they will inherit the earth-or what there  is left of it.  hi ii ��� ie sai  ift**��  mmta  M^^M��aa��aaaaMi��MaM  MAMMAE Pictured above are the local and regional executive of the  Provincial Emergency Program.

Centre's Mystery Tour.  Fishing resource neglect costly  by Ray Skelly  MP Comox-Powell River  For too long many people  have taken British Columbia's  fijhery resource for granted.  Now we are paying a high price  for that neglect.  In the salmon fishery alone,  the annual catch has fallen  from 280 million pounds in  1970 to aboul 100 million  pounds Ihis year. Things are no  better with olher catches.  This year's poor showing,  combined with repressive unemployment insurance regulations which prevent fishermen from collecting the benefits during ihe summer, have  had a disastrous effect on the  economics of west coast communities dependent on the  spin-oil revenue from commercial fishing.  Despite the seriousness of  (he situation and evidence the  size of the harvest will continue  to decline, there seems to be  little effort to find a remedy.  We're still taking ihis valuable  resource for granted.  Poor management is part of  the problem. Failure to deal  effectively wnh the growing  encroachment by U.S. fishermen is also pari ol the problem.  Pervading the whole situation  is the failure of governments -  at all levels to prevent the  continued pollution of our  waters.  For example, righl now there  arc a half do/en projects  planned or underway which  probably will endanger the  fishery habitat in my own  constituency. I wo of these are  sewage disposal note: disposal not treatment projects  near Powell River and Comox.  In another case, a log sorting  operations has been given  provincial government approval despite evidence il will  seriously affect oyster ground  near Buckley Bay. Further  north the Quinsam Coal operation is moving along with only  a handful of people concerned  about its effect on the fishery.  Meanwhile, further north  the Social Credit government  and Alcan plot the Kemano II  project which will alter river  flows to enable Alcan lo  generate more electricity to sell  to B.C. Hydro to sell to  Washington State. North of  that the provincial and federal  governments have come to the  defense of a multinational  corporation that wants lo  dump mine tailings into Alice  Arm when, for a few bucks  more, they could be disposed ot  where they won't endanger the  traditional food fishery of Ihe  Nishga people. Down in Victoria local politicians are  planning the ribbon cutting  ceremony on an installation  that will dump raw urban  sewage info Juan de Fuca  Strait.  Every one of these projects  has the blessing, in one form or  another, of a federal, provincial  or regional government. Every  one is defended on the grounds  that   by   itself   il   docs   not  constitute a major hazard. But  together and multiplied tenfold  up and down Ihe coast, they are  what is killing the fish stock.  What is needed is an agency  that will lake an overall look al  this resource and the industry il  supports, some instrument lhat  can measure Ihe total environmental impact of commercial  and industrial encroachment of  the sea, and lhat can judge the  effectiveness of the Department of Fisheries management  of this resource. Politicians are  always reluctant to call for yet  another public inquiry, but in  this case, no less than a Royal  Commission is needed lo look  into our sick fishing industry.  ��� '    (PC  PEP assures  quick local action  Coast News, August 26, 1980  Residents and visitors ofthe  Sunshine Coast can be assured  of quick action in the event of  an emergency in their communities, thanks lo the efforts  of volunteer groups such as thc  above.  When an emergency occurs  thc firsl contact is usuallv with  the RCMP.

DILL PICKLES  1. Wash and sterilize jars.  2. Wash dill and place a piece 0/ stalk the length of the jar in  each, plus a couple of leaves.  3. Rush out and pick your cucumbers. Rinse them in cold  water and pack them neatly into each jar.  4. Into each jar place the following:���  I head of dill  1 sliced garlic clove  2 chilli peppers  1/8 teaspoon powdered alum  Boil up  3 pints of cider vinegar  I 1/2 cups coarse salt  4 1/2 quarts cold water  Pour this hot into each jar and be sure you cover the  cucumbers completely. This amount of liquid is loth so /  make up the whole batch and keep any left over in a glass  jar to reheat as needed.  6. Seal the jars and keep in a cool dark place for  about a  month.  Waiting a month isn't too bad, but if you're a pickled  onion freak you have to wait a bit longer���at least three  months. You never know, by then the beer strike may be  over and you'll be able to have the perfrect lunch of whole  meal bread, cheese, pickled onions and beer. So with hope  springing its eternal thing���here's the recipe.  PICKLED ONIONS  Buy silver skin onions���as many as you think you can  eat���give them a quick rinse in cold water and pop them  into a brine made of 1 part coarse salt to8partscoldwater.  Put a plate on top of them lo ensure lhat they're below Ihe  surface of the brine then leave them for twelve hours.  When 12 hours are up remove them from the brine and  pop them out of their skins. This isn't always as simple as  you might think, so if you're making lots get someone to  help you. When you've finished pop them inlo a fresh brine  of the same proportions andleave them for thirty-six hours.  As soon as you've put them in this brine make up a batch  of spiced vinegar. 1 always use malt vinegar for pickled  onions but if you want a milder flavour or if you want to use  it for other pickles use white.  To each quart of vinegar add the following:  1 cinnamon stick  I teaspoon whole cloves  1 teaspoon mace  I teaspoon whole allspice  I teaspoon peppercorns  Heat the vinegar and spices to boiling point in a covered  saucepan and allow to steep covered for two hours. Strain  and keep in a cool place until required.  After Ihe onions have sal in the brine for their 36 hours  drain them thoroughly, pop them into jars, pour the cold  spiced uinegar over them and seal. Keep in a cool dark  place for 3 months.  The spiced vinegar can of course be used for other  pickles, beets, or red cabbage or cauliflower.  Add a little spice lo your life.!

This past week we have had a large number of Inquiries as to  whether or not we will be open on Sundays and Statutory  Holidays,���or,���if the recent legislation will prohibit us from being  open on those days.  As the act is written and passed,  1) It does NOT take effect until Jan. 1st, 1981.  2) It WOULD apply to our size of store on the effective date.  3) There IS scope for remedy by way of local by-law.  Many people express concern that this type of legislation should  have been allowed to pass without consideration of the modern day  needs of the users of this service. I have written several articles in  letters to the editor and Shop Talk giving our reasons for providing  the extended services, and we have urged ourcustomers toexpress  their views to Victoria.  Now it is a matter for us to deal with locally. I hope that after being  in business here almost 10 complete years, we have a broad enough  experience and understanding that we may seek and obtain the  necessary endorsements to continue as we have in the past.  I am well aware, with some, it is an emotional subject���that of  being open on the Sabbath. In these 10 years, I have been quite a  steady church goer. I believe in and support its work. I do, however,  believe also that we as Christians must go and preach our gospel by  everyday example, and be with and go where the people are.  We live in an age of round-the-clock shift work, dual and oft times  different husband-wife work schedules. It has been argued that  Sunday should be set aside for "family". There is no family more  family minded than we are. The innocent and provident task of  shopping groceries on a Sunday surely should not be forbidden to  those who are willing to provide the service and those who wish to  use it.  Let's debate the issue, reasonably and sensibly. We will be  carrying our side of the story little by little in Shop Talk. Your  expressions in letters to me, and/or the newspapers will be  respected and appreciated.

The  Ladies played a 36 hole  tournament for the club  Championship. Connie Grant  continued with her hot streak  to take the trophy. Connie shot  a gross 163 to add the Club  Championship to her other  victories this summer. Virginia Douglas, not yet fully  recovered from recent surgery  and many times winner of the  Ladies Championship, along  with Doreen Mathews, played  a steady game to force Connie  Grant to play up to her potential. The tournament low net  winner  was   Jay   Townsend  shooting a 135. Judy Foreman  was 2nd with a 136. Audrey  McKenzie 141 and Hazel  Wright 3rd with a score of 141.  In the 9 hole tournament  playing with irons only,  Winn McGowan took 1st place  and 2nd went to Isobel  Cowley.  Financially, the club a-  ppears to be doing well for  the 1st part of the year.  The goal of 20 new members is  slowly being reached. Green  Fee play is busier than last  year at this time.  Coming up is the Directors  Tournament, open to all past  and present directors of the  club. This is another relaxed  tournament where the players  Sechelt's 1980 Parks and  Recreation Programme is almost over, and by next week  most of us will be back at  school.  Previously I have written  about skills that we, as a team,  have developed. As this will  be my last column, I thought  I'd write about some of the  things that 1 have learned  during the programme.  Any job in which one has  contact with people tends to  develop into a course in public  relations and communications.  This job was no different,  yet through this contact with  the general public I met some  really great people who were  incredibly enthusiastic and  helpful, and who continually  brightened my days.  I tend to joke that I have  learned enough this summer  that I could easily go into  general contracting. It would  he more accurate to say that  I've learned enough to know I  couldn't! It's true that I can  converse fluently about practically any species of wood in  both lineal and board feet,  and my standard for any  price comparison is now a  yard of crusher dust (at $5.72  a yard). Yet if I have learned  anything this summer, I've  learned  how  much  I  don't  must let their golfing ability  do the talking instead of their  debating skills.  The Thursday morning seniors have decided to end their  summer schedule on the 1st  and 2nd Thursday of September with a 36 hole Eclectic  Tournament. In this event the  best role scores are used  to make up the lowest 18  hole score possible. Plans are  underway for a wind-up  celebration.  know; a valuable lesson for  any 1st year university student.  My bookkeeping skills have  improved vastly. By the end of  the week I expect to be doing  T4's and Record of Employment forms in my sleep, and  I no longer bat an eyelid at  doing a payroll and remittances for fourteen employees.  Probably my most painful  lesson this summer was that  the deadline for this paper is  always at noon on Sundays -  yet there always seems to be  less than seven days between  deadlines. Somehow the staff  ofthe Coast News managed to  be patient with me as, every  Sunday, I'd come panting into  thc office sometime between  noon and three, my copy  scrawled on a bit of paper  recycled from somewhere -  clutched in a sweaty fist  promising "Next week I  be on time-for sure I"  CLASSIFIED NOTE  Drop ofl your Coas, News  Classified a, Campbells  Family Shoes, Sechell. or  Centre Hardware.

You might not be  able to identify them immediately, for their unique  characteristics are not always  apparent to the casual observer, but should you chance  to join their hiking party for  a day or two their true natures  would be revealed.  From years of observation  on backpacking trips I've  concluded that the thousands  of outdoorsmen (and women)  who flee to the forests and  hills for serenity and exercise  fit neatly into one of several  categories.  In every fair-sized group of  hikers you'll find the Braggart. This individual's feats  of mountaineering, canoeing  and backpacking are legendary, at least in his own mind.  He's had more death-defying  adventures than Evel Knievel  has subdued grizzlies with  only a hunting knife and once  set a record for remaining in  his tent for 20 straight hours  during a blizzard. You'll find  this person dominating the  chatter around the campfire  late at night, topping everyone  else's modest tale with a  grander one. He'll make  offhand remarks like, "No,  I haven't been to Outer  Mongolia, actually, but I hiked  a little in Inner Mongolia.  It wasn't much, really. Let's  hear about your walk up  Soames Hill."  Cousin to the Braggart is  the Show-Off. He's a quieter  sort, fond of displaying his  superiority by wearing the  newest and fanciest hiking  gear, leading the trek at a  break-neck pace and performing dangerous feats for the  titUlation of the more cautious  hikers. The chaps who enjoyed  wine and caviar at the top of  Mt. De Cosmos while the  rest of us ate soup, cheese and  crackers were Show-Offs. How  we admired and envied them I  Another common type of  hiker is the Plodder. This individual is usually a serene,  placid sort who never hurries  or gets excited, just plods  along at a steady pace, smiling  occasionally as he passes the  speedsters panting for breath  at the trail's edge. The  Plodder is a moderating  influence on the group.  Though he says little, he  often knows more than his  voluble companions, has  seen more too. In a crisis,  he moves swiftly, maybe even  takes charge, then resumes  his even pace.  Few hikes are without a  Whiner who invariably finds  the trail too muddy or steep,  the pace too fast, his boots too  tight, his pack too heavy,  the mosquitoes too persistent,  the food too bland. If there's  any justice, he shares a tent  with the Braggart.  Search and rescue organizations are familiar with  the Wanderer. This is a  curious hiker, not curious in  the sense of strange, necessarily, but inquisitive. Rather  than follow the leader or keep  to the trail, he'll prefer to  wander off on his own, to  check out deer tracks or follow  a stream or gather wildflowers. When found hours  later he'll express surprise at  all the fuss. Tying a leash to  his pack and giving the other  end to the Show-Off usually  curtails future wanderings.  The Fashion Plate is usually  a woman but there are also  men who can't believe that  sweating in the company of  others is perfectly acceptable  and that looking grubby is  the way hikers are supposed  to look, at least while they're  hiking. The Fashion Plate  lugs along enough cosmetics  to supply an Avon lady for  a month and frequently stops  at crucial points in the hike  to check her lipstick or comb  her hair. The other women  in the group look like Russian  shotputters but the Fashion  Plate is a dainty creature  who puts in curlers by flashlight and is the last one to  break camp because she's  waiting for her toenail polish  to dry.  Finally (and this is far from  an exhaustive list), there's  the Ecology Freak. His heart's  in the right place, no doubt,  but he's also a pain in the neck  and by the first night his  fellow hikers are ready to  wring his. Imagine a combination of Felix Unger and  Ralph Nader and you get the  idea. Every plant that's  stepped on is mourned by the  Ecology Freak who bemoans  the ravaging of the wilderness  and feels terribly guilty for  taking part. He trails the  others alert for dropped gum  wrappers and insists on  conducting his own "environmental impact" study before  a campsite is selected. When  the group is prepared to leave,  he scours the campsite, eager  to point an accusing finger  at whoever left more than  footprints at this spot in the  wilderness. His companions  resent his vigilance but  they're secretly glad to have  him along, nevertheless.  So there they are, hikers  all, each communing with  Nature in his own way. Bless  them, every one.

Following this worthy motto a group of eight  students and one instructor  spent the better part of a  three day camping trip on a  local island known as "Garbage" Island, a name they  rejected for one that describes  its size and not its character,  Puny Island. The purpose of  the camping experience was  to assist the people to get to  know one another as well as  to show the needs, problems,  and logistics of setting up  camping trips; a skill that all  outdoor education people  must master to ensure the  safety, security and happiness  of those they will be taking  into any possible type of  environment.  Environmental education  teaches that there is a distinction that must be realized  between camping in "campgrounds" such as Porpoise  Bay Provincial Campgrounds  and camping in a wilderness  environment. The wilderness  is not a campground. It does  not have garbage cans, it does  not have "campsites" all set  up with firepits, roadways,  toilets etc. etc. The wilderness  is a sensitive environment  that is under attack from all  directions. The wilderness  cannot be treated as if the  campsite maintenance men  will come along in the morning  to clean up after the "campers".  When a group of people go  camping in the wilderness be  TEAK  HARDWOOD  FLOORING  3 finishes and  8 patterns from  which to choose  TEAK ROOM DIVIDERS  Custom sizes available  OPEN THURS. ��� SAT., 10 an. - 5 pm.  it Alpine Meadow, Rain Forest  or Puny Island they have the  responsibility of not only  being their own maintenance  people but also of ensuring  that the wilderness be maintained through the coming  ages. They must leave no  trace of themselves ever  having been in the area.  The nine people who stayed  on Puny Island did not build  any fires even though it  rained two out of the three  days they were on the Island.  They did not cut down any  trees or branches nor did they  leave any other evidence  of their stay on the Island. It is  a difficult thing for nine  people to live in a restricted  environment and leave no  trace.  We hear; "Who's ever  going to look behind that  tree?" "Why not just leave  your junk; the logging companies are going to wipe out  the wilderness anyway I" The  reason is simple, no one is  going to protect the environment if we, the campers and  hikers, don't become we, the  environmentalists,  The nine environmentalists  who stayed on Puny Island  learned and followed the  ethics of camping, the ethics  of Low Impact Camping. The  ethics of Leave No Trace.  These environmentalists will  all be going back to their  students in the fall to teach  them, through the two great  teachers Experience and Nature, this environmental skill.  They will learn to slip through  the forest like a deer, to go  where they want to go quickly,  easily and safely and without  trace.  Carpet - Cabinet -Ceramic  BwHour��        Centre     ssb^^  by Michael J. Norimld  People often ask "How  many miles do you get to a  gallon?" referring to my little Yamaha 100 motor-cycle.  They're generally surprised  when I say, "I have no idea."  After all, I buy my gas in  litres, my odometer records in  kilometres, and I lack the  curiosity, slide rules or electronic calculators necessary to  juggle the equation. An  equally valid question might  be "How many miles do you  get to a gallon of digestive  juice?"  The recent overturning of  B.C.'s mandatory Helmet Law  once again makes headline  news out of motor-cycle  safety. While it would seem  logical that a helmet would  indeed protect a biker's  noggin, there's a vocal opposition who maintain otherwise. In a minority view,  helmets dangerously limit  vision and hearing, their  weight contributes to whiplash, and a tight fitting hard  hat may actually contribute  to brain damage by not  allowing a fractured skull  to expand and thus let out  pressure. But a medical  wizard I'm not, and for  the foreseeable future I'll  regularly be donning my  helmet, hoping I'm not riding  a "big lie".  In my view though, a helmet  or the lack of it has very  little to do with motor-cycle  safety. The greatest hazard  cyclists face is careless drivers, sometimes rude reckless  car and truck drivers who  throw away all decency  and common sense, willfully  ignore the law, and drive as if  there were an "open season"  on bikers.  No such hunting season  exists, and anyway, very few  bikers are unrepentant outlaw  monster demons whom the  world would be better off  without. Many guys and  nowadays many gals ride  motor-cycles for a  freedom  and intimacy with the road  which makes that antique  auto the "convertible" seem  stuffy in comparison. Motorcycles, mopeds etc. are a  cheap, energy efficient means  of transportation in a world  chronically running out of  oil for a century or so.  Motor-cycles of course consume gas and oil, are subject.  to virtually the same traffic'  regulations which govern cars,  and trucks, and are absolutely  entitled to an unqualified t  equality of the road! While  law enforcement officials have  the right to make certain  that a biker is properly  licensed and insured, they  also have a duty to protect  this often maligned endangered species of taxpayers.  It would be an important  contribution to road safety if  more reckless drivers were  hauled off to jail for illegally  tail-gating, passing, failing  to yield, or otherwise callously  threatening the lives of decent  people guilty of nothing more  than obeying traffic laws on  two wheels instead of four.  As an iron-clad rule, bikers  are made of mortal clay, are  quite often gentle souls,  and generally do not wish to  be splattered all over the road.  It can be hoped that with  conscientious law enforcement  and consciousness raising  exhortations to decency that  there might be a new birth  of road courtesy in an era  when two wheel vehicles  are by necessity becoming  more and more plentiful.  For the real issue is not  kilometres per litre or the  statistical validity of a hard  hat "brain bucket", but  broken bones and mangled  bodies, life and death and  nothing less.

Certainly I was on the receiving  end of lots of their chaffing and  practical jokes but they were  mostly of a good natured and  harmless variety and did me no  harm. In fact many of their  pranks did me good as they  added to my knowledge of the  ways ofthe forest and how best  to   overcome   some   of  the  difficulties associated with  wresting a living from it.  lt also has to be considered  . that in those days there were no  such things as radio or T. V. and  while  the   moving  picture  industry was still in its infancy  with its silent films, it certainly  hadn't penetrated up into the  wilderness area and was strictly  confined to the urban centres  and its future was still uncertain.   Most   of  the   reading  material such as newspapers  and magazines that found its  : way into our camp was nat-  : urally in French and it must be  remembered that the majority  pi the men were semi-illiterate  .and  not interested  in the  written word. However many  of them could and did tell some  amazing stories to pass the long  winter nights away. Sinclair,  thc clerk, certainly had books  but he kept them to himself and  damned if I would lower myself  to ask for thc loan of any of  them. 1 read, laugh if you will,  I one of the few books available  in English, the Holy Bible. In  fact  I read it through from  Genesis to Revelations twice  and  at   the  end  was  more  confused   that  when  1   had  started. I could make no sense  out of the largest part of it.  Christmas passed unevent-  :   fully, apart from the fact that  two sides of beef were sent up  the name of Mogens Jensen  having been only a year in  Canada, spoke it haltingly and  with a pronounced Scandinavian accent. Among these new  men was a character named  Tom McGivern. He was a  loudmouth and a braggart and  I don't think in all my travels  around this old globe I have  ever encountered anyone I have  detested more. According to  his version of it, and it is quite  possible it might have been  true, he'had been in the late  1914-1918 war serving in the  Strathcona Light Horseand, to  hear him tell it, it was a wonder  anyone else had bothered to go  overseas as he had practically  won thc war single handed.  When he arrived in France I  guess the Germans simply gave  up!  I never was able to understand why he and two of his  cronies selected poor old  Mogens Jensen as thc target for  all their crude and sometimes  cruel jokes. I did hear that  Jensen, not being accustomed  to the woods, had left his horses  unattended for a while and  they, being cold, had beat it  back into camp much to his  discomforture and to the  hilarity of the other teamsters.  The story was probably true  but I think the main reason was  that the Dane, not being  proficient in the language,  could not respond in kind to  their bantering. Anyway things  went from bad to worse until  one night after Mogens had  bought a pair of oil-tanned  moccasins in the commissary,  when he went outside for a few  moments, they spiked them to  thc floor with the result that  when Mogens leapt out of bed  the next morning at the sound  of thc bell and thrust his feet  into them he was immobilized  and, to his amazement, could  go nowhere. All very funny, but  these same moccasins cost him  $7, almost a week's wages, and  they were now completely  ruined.  A few nights later after  supper they were at him again,  while I was lying in my bunk  trying to read. I don't know  for the event to relieve the   .      t,  St   monotony ol1 our salt pork diet,   what got into me but I could  Wml once again odr cook>came> Stand'it'no longer. Sb fgot out  I  up with a splendid stew, but  I   many of us still remembered  our experience with the moose  meat and were leary of it, so ate  :   very lightly when it was placed  on thc table. He (the cook)also  made some raisin pies but I  guess pastry was not his forte as  thc crust was so hard it almost  needed a hammer and a chisel  to crack it. but we ate it just the  same and. as far as I know,  Ihere were no ill effects.  New Year passed and the  week   following   there   were  some new arrivals in camp.  Five   new  teamsters  arrived  with their horsesand, out ofthe  five, four were English speaking while the fifth, a Dane by  on to the floor and faced up to  this Tom McGivern and invited  him to pick on me for a change.  At least 1 could speak his  language. After a brief exchange of pleasantries, during  which he called me a "Lippy  Limey" and I responded by  referring to him as a "horse's  arse", he struck me a vicious  blow that knocked me to the  floor but I was not there very  long and the fight got underway. He had all the advantages  of height, weight and reach and  it was soon evident he was no  stranger to the fight game. Put  very simply I had underestimated him and bitten off  more than I could chew. I was  definitely getting the worst of  the encounter when a distraction occurred. Mogens,seeing!  was losing the battle, attempted  to intervene but was retrained  by some ofthe others. However  McGivern made the fatal  mistake of turning his head to  sec what all the commotion was  behind him. That was sufficient  time for me to grab a three foot  length of birch from the stack  of firewood piled near the  stove. So that when he turned  again to face mc 1 let him have  it right on top of the head and  down he went! He still wasn't  out so when he attempted to  rise I hit him again and, by this  time in a blind fury, kept  raining blows on his head till I  was seized from behind, lifted  bodily and flung half way  across thc bunkhouse. It was  Larabie thc foreman who had  been attracted by all the shouts  and noise in the bunkhouse.  His lace was livid and he  shouted at mc "You crazy  young bastard. What are you  trying to do? Kill him?" He  followed this up by warning  everyone to keep quiet and  dispatching one of the men to  go and get Sinclair who,  besides being the clerk, had a  First Aid ticket. Then turning  once again to me he said, and  his volte was stern, "I'll see you  over in the office right after  breakfast."  I fully expected to be fired  but such was not the case. I  guess he had learned of the  circumstances that led to the  fight. But he really chewed me  out and, as he put it, "you had  better learn to control that  temper of yours or you will end  up dangling on a rope."  The aftermath of all this  excitement was that Tom  McGivern. his head swathed in  bandages, left that same morning for the long journey south  to Mattawa and proper medical attention, while the rest of  us went quietly back to our  respective tasks in the woods.  Mogens and I bjcame very  close friends and our friendship  endured for over forty years till  his death. Although I did not  know it at the time, he and I  were later to. farm togetjierapd  it was1 through' him and his  influence on mc that I called a  halt to my hoboing days and  became the proud owner of my  first home in Canada���a log  cabin way down in Glengarry  County, Ontario.

But eleven SFU Environmental  Education students have discovered that being alone need  not be either boring or threatening, and can, in fact, be  rewarding. These students have  just returned from a three-day  solo experience.  Under the supervision of two  of the Institute's staff, the  students were ferried to pre-  designated locations along  Sechelt Inlet. These spots were  on either side of a central  supervisory beach site. Once  located the students were left to  their own devices for a three  day, two night period.  Although there was no  restriction on what they could  bring, simplicity was recommended. An average pack  consisted of tarp or plastic  sheet, sleeping bag, ensolite,  knife, flashlight, matches, a  book, a journal, some clothes,  water and food mostly of which  was fruit and granola. Some  students chose not to bring any  food.  The purpose of the solo  varied according to the personal needs and desires of each  soloist. For some it was a  chance to observe nature, for  others a first experience at  solitude and for all an opportunity, to reflect, meditate and  'Wink.  For liability purposes, the  solists were restricted in their  actions. Since everyone had a  portion of water frontage, a no-  swimming rule was in effect.  There was a 100 feet travelling  Salvation Army Camp  students to perform  Over one hundred students  attending the Senior Music  Camp at the Salvation Army's  Camp Sunrise will perform  "Music of Youth" on Wednesday afternoon Aug. 27 in  lower Gibsons.

Daily checks were made by the  staff to ensure the soloists  safety.  At the outset ofthe experience there were some of the  typical apprehensions. But  once settled thc anxieties were  dissipated. With living arrangements to be tended to in a no-  trace manner, and 100 yards to  explore, and nature to observe,  and personal and wordly  thoughts to contemplate, there  was no opportunity for boredom. And as for fear, that  comes from within and can be  controlled by asking, "what's  the worst thing that could  happen?" and "is it likely to  occur?"  Though everyone's solo  experience was unique and very  personal, a common element  could be seen in their reunion  on the main beach. There was a  glow and aliveness that radiated from each soloist as they  spoke about their sites, experience can best be summed up  in the words of environmentalist/naturalist, Sigurd F.  Olson: "We cannot separate  ourselves from society, comradeship, sharing and love.  Unless we can contribute  something   from   wilderness  experience, derive some solace  or peace to share with others,  then thc real purpose is defeated."  m  Product of' British Columbia  QUALITY LIVING WITH CEDAR  Every detail in a Lindal Cedar Home radiates gracious, yet sensible  living.

Wildlife  corner  by Ian Corrance  Eggdttng Newa.  It looks as if Maplewood is  not the only poultry producer  to run into difficulties. Six  months of intensive hard  labour on my part watching  Steve Carroll building chicken  runs and what have you, are  sort of bearing the fruits of our  labours. Never having been  a chicken rancher before, it  didn't dawn on me that their  eyes are in their head, far  away from their brains and  they have to practice before  they can produce legitimate  eggs. If the first one had been  green, it could have hidden  in a jar of pickled gherkins.  The second attempt could  have passed for one of the pool  balls on my $35 pool table.  After the third attempt,  success. 1 guess everything  taki.s a bit of practice.  Now that it looks like we're  on our way to self-sufficiency  and freedom from the egg  marketing board, I think that  we should move to Alberta  and apply for a federal grant.  How not to catch flsh.  Come fishing with me. Two  things are fortunate in the  Coast News, August 26, 1980  fishing game as far as I am  concerned. 1. That when I  write later in this column  about where the fish are, I call  the people who know and  don't go by my own vast  store of knowledge, and 2.  That food on my table is not  dependent on my prowess as  a fisher of salmon.  On Wednesday evening I  anchored in my favourite spot,  just off the green house at  Gower Point and felt that I  was in the right place at the  right time. Others obviously  thought that too, as I was soon  surrounded by boats. ALL  CATCHING FISH. I tried  every trick I knew, praying,  swearing, acting casual,  changing depths and spying  on the other fishermen.  Nothing worked. Perhaps God  meant me to be a chicken  farmer.  There was a happy ending  to thc expedition. We got  shipwrecked. Seagull outboards have the nasty habit  of running out of gas. This  happened on the homeward  trip and while refuelling  I shorted out the electrical  system.  Your first impression could  be that this is not a happy  ending, but after making a  landfall on Shoal Beach, I  noticed that a bunch of  teenagers were having a wee  bit of a party. From listening  to the police and the shopkeepers, you get the impression that all teenagers  are vandals and it would seem  a bit foolhardy to leave an  open boat full of gear for  their plundering. I'm happy to  report that everything was  intact when I returned the  next morning. Perhaps God  does want me to catch a fish  this year after all. I'll try  tonight.  Where the fish are.  If the reports are anything  to go by, try the Horseshoe  Bay area. The further up you  go, the worse it gets.  Sewell's at Horseshoe Bay  reports lots of 4 to 5 pound  cohos at Passage Island, up  to nine pounds at Seal Rocks  and a 33 pound spring was  snagged at Cowan's Point.  Moving north, Merrill at  Hyak in Gibsons has seen  one 12'/i pound coho come in,  but the rest are small, although there are quite a few  of them. He'd like to remind  fishermen that there are lots  of grilse around. They are not  trout as one nut thought. So,  if they are under 12 inches,  put them back carefully.  Hugh at Lord Jims is further  north, so the tale is sadder.  Fish are coming in, in ones  and twos. He adds that the  weather is beautiful, so how  about some sight seeing.  Maurice at Irvines Landing  makes a great apple and  blackberry pie, so perhaps you  can stop in for some of that  instead of chasing the few  cohos that are around. The  flash in the pan of large  northerners a couple of weeks  ago, was just that. There are  some nice springs in the 15 to  18 pound range being taken in  the Lees Bay and Fearny Point  area. Go down deep with live  bait for them.  Horror stories.  Years after the fact, we  learn that the American  government was using the  public as guinea pigs to test  their germ warfare nasties.  The stuff was let loose in  subways, crowded streets and  other suitable locations where  it could be monitored. To  release it into the subway,  a goon took a light bulb full  of nastie beasties on one of the  trains. When he was enroute,  he dropped it between two  carriages and smashed it.  The finale was when a U.S.  Navy boat went into San  Francisco harbour and aero-  soled the city. The compound  was supposed to be in quantities small enough that  it would not be noticed by  the public. Unfortunately  there was a hospital in the way  and 11 patients reacted to it.  One ofthe people was obliging  enough to die from the  experience, so I guess the test  could be considered a success  and the microbes an effective  deterrent against the yellow  peril.  Don't be smug and think  that this type of behaviour is  confined to south of the  border. Get a hold of Friday's  Province and you can read  about open air tests with  deadly botulism chemicals in  '43 and '44.  The tests were carried out  The first three eggs from the famous Corrance/Carroll chicken ranch were from the one hen. While it  proves that the chicken came firsl, il doesn't necessarily mean that it knows whal an egg is supposed  lo look like.  by the Department of Defence  in Suffteld, Alberta, 35 kilometres northwest of Medicine  Hat.  With idiots like this around,  it's no wonder that any  thinking person must demand  that all chemicals should be  considered unsafe until proven safe. Not vice versa.  Sanity stories.  William Rich, the vice-  president for Alcan BC, has  decided not to fight the court  ruling to maintain the flow of  the Nechako River in order  that salmon may have some  water to spawn.  There was a weird little  news item last week about the  fisheries lowering the water  temporarily, in the very river  that they told Alcan to keep  their hands off. I phoned the  fisheries in Vancouver and  went from department to  department trying to get some  clarification on it. When the  information secretary finally  gave me a number that ended  up being the department of  justice, I gave up.  There is good news from  the Goodyear (blimp) people.  They say that they have come  up with a cheap method of  rendering PCB's harmless.  PCB is that stuff that is used  in electrical transformer.; and  is as deadly to the environment as a flame is to ice.  Millions of pounds of it have  been put into storage dumps  over the years, because no one  knew what to do with it.  Let's hope that for everybody's sake their claims are  true. Especially since the  States recently stopped BC  Hydro and other like companies from using their  dumping grounds.  That's it.

Gambier Society Founded  Six Gambier Island property  owners are in the process  of forming the Gambier Island  Preservation Society. The  primary purpose of the society  will be to raise money for the  production of a 15 minute  colour documentary film dramatizing the unique recreational potential of the  island and the threat to that  potential posed by the possibility of an open pit copper-  molybdenum mine.  The Society will be trying to  raise an estimated $30,000  for the production of the film  and to cover advertising and  distribution costs. The film,  to be written and produced  by Peter Haworth and Derek  Gardner, has a projected  completion date of Sept.  30th and will be made a-  vailable to groups and organizations interested in the  controversy surrounding metal exploration on the island.

Like most gyppo's of the  hungry thirties, we were limited  for equipment by what we  could alTnnl to buy. Ihe old  AC Tractor hail no dozer blade  but the tracks were good and  the engine was a cheap running  diesei.  Bert had traded in his  sawdust truck for a new three  ton Ford with a used, six ton  logging trailer. An old one ton  truck was loaded with tools,  hand equipment and grub and  lied on a hitch at her rear was a  utility trailer loaded with beds,  a stove and other cookhouse  equipment.  Our first chore was to find a  low bank, run the tractor up on  it, then load onto the back of  the log truck. Next the log  trailer was hooked behind the  truck and we were ready to  travel. That little convoy  represented all we owned in the  world, but no one could have  been prouder cf that handfull  of tired iron that we were as we  pointed the lot toward the  timbered hills of the Cowichan  Valley and the E. & N.  K.iilway crossing of the Kok-  silah River.  I God only knew what lay in  Store for us in the months to  come as we struggled against  the fates that faced all gyppo  loggers in their struggle for  survival in the rough and  tumble times of the hungry  thirties!  The first few miles of our  journey into the unknown was  on blacktop as fa r as Cowichan  Jitation. We made a short stop  there to freshen up our supplies  of tobacco, bread and a few  other staples. We were going to  be in the bush for awhile and  didn't plan a trip out until we  were logging.  While we were in the store,  Bert had been making inquiries  about the condition ofthe road  into Kinsol Siding on the E. &  N. Railroad. This surprised me  as Bert and A.T. Craike, the log  broker who owned the timber,  were supposed to have been on  the ground and checked the  ALUMINUM  COMPANY OF  CANADA, LTD  APPOINTS SENIOR  CUTIVE FOR  BRITISH COLUMBIA  William J. Rich  Patrick J.J. Rich. President. Aluminum Company  ol Canada, Ltd, has announced the appointment  ol William J. Rich as Vice  President lor British  Columbia, reporting directly to the President.  The appointment follows a  recent announcement by  Alcan that it will review its  prrposal to build additions hydro-electric and  smelling capacity in  British Columbia. The  development ol a proposal that will take into account the interests ol  governmental agencies  and ol residents in the  area that could be affected  will be a prime responsibility of the new executive.  Bill Rich is a graduate engineer and joined Alcan at  Kitimat in 1961. He has  held a number of management positions and  was, until this appointment, manager of the  Kitimat smelter.  The Aluminum Company  of Canada, Lid's facilities  in British Columbia are  managed by Alcan Smelters and Chemicals Ltd  which operates the smelter at Kitimat and the  hydro-electric facilities at  Kemano; and by Alcan  Canada Products Limited  which is responsible for  six fabricating plants and  seven sales offices in the  province.  road  conditions just a few  weeks before.  We left the blacktop at the  store, crossed a bridge onto a  gravel road and headed West.  The gravel soon gave way to a  narrow set of tracks that  climbed an easy grade into the  hills through heavy second  growth crowding in on both  sides with alder and scrub  growing between the wheel  tracks. It was obvious that little  or no traffic had been over this  road since last fall's hunters  and thc winter snows.  We had been jolting along  over this increasingly rough  trail for a couple of hours,  feeling our way through low  spots and water holes when,  after descending into a small  ravine, Bert's outfit stopped in  front of me. Relishing a chance  to stretch my legs, I walked up  to where Bert and Jim were  surveying the condition of a  small bridge. One stringer had  partly collapsed while the other  looked to be ready to. Light  vehicles and four wheel drives  had been clawing their way  over it in the past, but there was  no way it would support our  heavy loads. It was also  ob'ious that Bert and Craike  had not crossed it in their fancy  car nor hiked this trail in their  city shoes.  I remarked to Bert, "Well,  the timber can't be too far from  here. You fellas must'a walked  in the rest of the way?'  Bert grunted, "Must of  rained hard lately. But I knew  we'd have to fix this bridge.  Better drop the trailer, unload  the 'cat and see if we can find  some logs for stringers".  That job took us most ofthe  day so it was almost dark when  we crossed the new bridge with  our heavy loads and crawled  cautiously along the unfamiliar  track to our final destination.  An hour later we pulled off  the trail into an old siding of the  E. & N. Railroad. This had  been the site of the mill that had  been sawing the timber from  the claim we were now going to  finish logging. A big fire had  destroyed the mill before the  logging was completed and it  was decided that the remaining  timber was not worth building  a new mill for.  They could have shipped the  logs by rail, but for some  strange reason, it was never  done. Within the next few days  we were going to find out why,-  but that night we were all so  tired and hungry it couldn't  have mattered less what the  reasons were.  A quick sandwich of crusty  bread and bully beef soon eased  the hunger pangs, then topping  it off with a fresh brew of  campfire coffee, we dug out our  sleeping bags. We scratched  around in the grass like a pack  of hounds after a cougar hunt,  looking for soft spots to spread  our beds. Moments later I was  stripped of my sweaty clothes,  stretched naked and warm in  my padded cocoon, with only  the stars above me.  My last thoughts of the day  as I lay on my back and picked  out the configuration of the big  dipper in that star-studded sky,  was that because the laddie was  upright, no water would spill.  That meant dry, hot weather  for the next few weeks which  we would need so badly to get  our new road built and packed.  For the moment I was happy  with the decision I had made to  embark on the new career of  'logger', and I wondered if Rat  Portage John would be pleased  if he knew that I had made the  change.  As 1 began to doze, I  wondered if I would someday  top and ride the wildly swaying  pick of the forest crop; to  harness and tame it to its  function as a spar tree; to  become one of the legendary  steel-nerved breed who was  idolized in a forest camp or a  skidrow street as top man in his  trade.... a Highrigger!

The funding is a further  development of what used to  be known as Canada Works  and is designed to provide  direct assistance to job creating projects.  Skelly said that while he  was pleased funding has been  'made available in his constituency, "the amount provided is insufficient to meet  the needs ofthe many projects  being planned and it does not  reflect the real unemployment  rate in the riding."  As a result, the local  advisory board will have a  difficult job determining  which projects will receive  grants, he said.  Five of the board members  are Doris Marlow of Courtenay, Mayor Gilbert Popovich  of Alert Bay, Wally Diesman  of Bella Coola, Colin Palmer  of Powell River and Stephen  Holland of Langdale. A sixth  member of the board, from  Campbell River, will be  announced later,  The co-ordinator of the  board will be Greg Hartnup  of Campbell River, a staff  member of the Department of  Employment and Immigration.

At the Hearing all persons who deem their interest in  property affected by the proposed By-law shall be afforded an opportunity to  be heard on matters contained in the By-law.  The intent of the by-law is to amend the present zoning to the following  described properties as noted below:  1. That part of the west half of Lot 6, Blocks 4-6, D.L. 698, Gp. 1,  N.W.D., Plan 3678 which part may be more particulary  described as follows:  All that part of the west 1 /2 of said Lot 6 lying northerly of the  westerly projection of the southerly boundary of Lot A, Lot 6,  Blocks 4 to 6, D.L. 689, Gp. 1, N.W.D., Plan 11588 and  containing an area of 1413 square metres more or less to be  rezoned from Residential Zone 3, R-3 to Public Assembly,  P.A.  2.

J. W. Copland  MUNICIPAL CLERK  On the  Seafood  Platter  by Chak-Chak  Chak-Chak has been away  on a flight to the inland  waterways. The Fraser, Thompson, Nicola Rivers and Nicola  Lake. The Coldwater, Tula-  meen and Similkameen Rivers.  Osoyoos, Vaseux, Skaha and  Okanagan Lakes. Ogopogo  raised his ugly head from the  depths of Okanagan Lake but  this old bird did not catch a  glimpse of him.  My wife and I took advantage of fresh fruit and vegies on  our trip. We had one meal of  vegies to which we added a tin  of mackerel which was quite  good. We had a dinner of  Chinese food in the town of  Osoyoos and it was very poor,  overcooked and smothered in  beef gravy.  As it was our fortieth wedding anniversary while staying  at Todds Tent Town on the  lake at Peachland we drove  into Kelowna for a special  dinner at the 'Pirates Cave', a  restaurant with a very unusual  decor. The whole place is a vast  cave created from carpet  material with live fish swim-'  ming in pools fed by fountains  and waterfalls tumbling down  rocky slopes.  They have a very good salad  bar on a par with 'The Great  Canadian Dough Factory' in  Gibsons. Of course we ordered  seafood for the entree, my wife  had 'Salmon Steak' which was  done quite nicely, but my  'Pirates Platter' was very  mediocre.  I would like to have tried  Kelowna's floating restaurant,  an old paddle wheel ferry called  the Fintry Queen. The list of  seafood that is available is very  impressive:���Baked B.C. Salmon; Baked Sturgeon; Baked  Halibut; Whole Octopus; Baked Tuna; Smoked Australian  Eel; Baked Artie Char; Smoked Black Alaskan; Smoked  Trout; Scottish Kippers; Shark  (when available); Fin'n Had-  die; Smoked Herring; Barbecued Salmon; Alaskan Baby  Shrimps; Baked King Cod;  California Squid; West Coast  Smelts; Fresh Oyster; Maki  Maki (Hawaii); Smoked Gold-  cyed (Winnipeg); Sable Fillets;  Louisiana Frog Legs; Filet of  Sole; Deep Fried Prawns; King  Crab (in season); Pickled  Herring and much more...  Perhaps we will try this on  our next trip.  The mainstay of this part of  thc country of course, is beefsteak but the diligent fisherman  if he travels around to the right  places can bag a variety of  fish;���Kamloops trout 1 1/2 to  20lb.;Kokaneelto9lbs.;Lake  trout 2 to 25 lbs.; Steelhead 16  lb. average; Rocky Mountain  whitefish up to S lbs.  I have given just a peek at  what is available in this  bountiful province of ours. Let  us all who partake of this  bounty be ever mindful of the  need to conserve and protect  these fragile resources.  Back to the coast next week.  Sea you.  Sewer concern sparked  A letter to Gibsons council from Federal member of  parliament, Ray Skelly, sparked off concern at the Aug. 19  meeting over the future sewer project for the bluff in Gibsons.  To install the sewer council will require funds through the  Community Services Contribution Program. The program is  administered by Canada Mortgage and Housing. Although  Skelly's letter expresses hope for the program's continuation,  there is still doubt that it will be extended past 1980.  Council has written, asking that thc program be continued into  1981 as previously understood. In the meantime they will go  ihead and complete the engineering plans this fall, so work can be  itarted immediately if the funds are forthcoming.  \   y'3p*-ii.'."i  Molly's Reach is always a popular tourist attraction. This is  especially true when they are shooting at Ihe Reach and visitors  get a chance to see Ihe actors work.  Crisis centre sought  A Mrs. Velma Reed asked council to give consideration to a  feasibility study for a crisis centre serving thc area from Port  Mellon to Powell River. She felt that the outlay would be  minimal, mainly requiring volunteers to man phone lines in thfi;  evening.  Alderman Metcalfe said that one had been tried in Nelson and  he was not sure of its value. He felt that a viable alternative could-'  be a Zenith number where people could call direct to Vancouver,:  It was decided that council's representative would bring it before  the Regional Board for discussion. ���'.  Middlepoint fatality  Charges of criminal negligence causing death and  impaired driving have been  laid against 25 year old  Philip Robert Lewis of Madeira Park.  At 2:30 a.m. August 16th,  Lewis' car went out of control on Highway 101 near  Middlepoint. The passenger,  24 year old Patricia McCor-  mack, of Vancouver was killed  in the accident.  Lewis escaped with minor  abrasions.

As I  dragged the first one in, a  familiar odor filled my nostrils,  verifying my initial belief tnat  the 'Lavabos' had been exploited for a purpose other than  what I had been told it was  designed for. After all, there  was a drain in the floor! No  time for second thoughts now,  wc shoved thc other bag in,  foiling thc door shut. Relieved  that they were finally out of  sight, we went to look for a  seat. As the conductor came  into the coach, Pierre perked  up his ears to hear whether the  conductor had any queries as to  whom the two big white bags  belonged to. Not hearing  anything more unusual than  "tickets, please," he gave me the  high sign ��� we were in the  clear!  Five minutes before arriving  in La Rochelle, we went to  retrieve the sails. Through the  motion of the train, one ofthe  bags had become lodged between the door and the wall. The  laughter started all over again,  but this time with a little  nervous twinge to it, as 1  recalled Ihesong about "Char.-;.  lie on the MTA" (Massachu  setts Transit Authority) who  couldnH get off the train.  Struggling, we finally managed  to shove the door open far  enough to hook 'one arm  around the door and latch onto  the culprit. As the sails hit the  platform at La Rochelle, Pierre  and I shook hands, still laughing.  "Good luck in the race."  "Thanks."  October 13 was the day  Ppalu was to officially receive  her new name for the race: Paul  Ricard. The sponsors: Ricard  International, had chosen  Marc's home port, La Baule.  for the christening. Marc and  Corinne had been tripping  around Europe in Kicard's  private plane, promoting thc  race and speaking at functions  organized by Ricard. They  arrived back in La Rochellc  just two days before the  christening. Immediate plans  were made to sail Ppalu lo La  Baule, about 75 miles away.  But, there was no wind! If it  remained this way, Ppalu  would miss her own christening. We departed La Rochelle  at 11:00 hours, October 12. and  did not reach La Baule until  05:00 on the 13th. At 08:00 we  were towed into the marina by  Marc's father and escorted by  two monohull racers decked  out in flags for the occasion.  They were also contestants in  La Route du Rhum. After  considerable difficulty, but  spurred on by copious amounts  of yelling and screaming, we  managed to dock Ppalu in her  pre-arranged place, right  across from the raised platform  from which the dignitaries  would hold their speeches and  let the champagne bottle fly.  We had to dream up a scheme  of how to break the bottle over  Ppalu without damaging her.  So, we trapped the spinnaker  pole to the gunwhale, then tied  a line onto the jib halyard to  which the bottle was secured at'  the desired length. Then a  smaller line was attached to the  bottle neck and led over to the  platform. To make sure the  system was foolproof, we tried  a bottle ��� filled with water;,it  worked fine. Jean Manson, an  American singer living in Paris,  was to cut the line. At 12:00  sharp, a busload of 60 European journalists appeared.  They were all ushered down to  the dock.  Marc was interviewed by all  of them, cameras blazing away.  A half-hour later the public  address system beckoned  everybody over to the platform. A short address was  given by Marc, Jean Manson  and thc Ricard officials. Although I couldn't understand a  word they said, 1 did hear thc  name Ricard and Paul Ricard  mentioned no less than 50 times  in five minutes; 1 wondered if  the news media got thc right  spelling. Jean was ready to let  the bottle go... more pictures...  thc bottle plummeted towards  the boat, a loud metallic ring  was heard as it hit the spinnaker pole ��� but did not break.  Ihe crowd shifted uneasily.  Marc pulled the bottle back up,  much higher this time, Jean let  go once more.... Sssshplat! The  crowd clapped and whistled.  The formalities over with,  cocktails and lunch were  served. They sure put on a good  show. After lunch, more pictures on board for publicity.  "Marc, stand over here next  to Jean."  "No, over here at the mast,  right."  "Jean, stand a little closer to  Marc, look like you are going  to miss him."  "Point at something, Jean.  Look like you're interested."  "Let's have one at the chart  table r-i-i-i-ght!"  After the pictures hit the  papers, the docks hummed  with spectators, all coming to  see the Paul Ricard. At times  like these, one does tend to  become a touch cynical. It was  like being the star attraction at  the circus. But then that's wihat  the game is all about.  Patrick Toyon, an electronics technician and his wife  Dominic had been helping on  board since the first day Ppalu  came ,to La Rochelle. Dominic  is the kind of girl every  yachtsman dreams of. For her,  ketping'tfawgs'tidy wan'^ara-  mount, she was a real workhorse and a super cook, and  was responsible for keeping our  stomachs filled. I don't know  how we worked as well as we  did, for every lunchtime turned  into a two to three-hour feeding  orgy. Those Frenchmen do like  their food! Patrick's work was  cut out for him. Electronic  equipment and deck hardware  started to accumulate on  board, the latest Omega position finder, a Nagrafax weather  map machine, a single sideband  radio, everything had to be  installed, tested and re-tested.  More batteries were added, and  more solar panels to charge  them with. A new, heavier  forcstay, three new sails,  including a fully battened  main, a drifter and another jib.  Two Barbarossa backstay  tentioners, new sheets, halyards, a second autopilot,  safety nets, a'new lifeboat, thc  list was endless. When all this  was finally in place, wc started  thinking of sailing to St. Malo.  All competitors had to be  registered there by midnight.  October 29. We depar.ted from  LaBaulc on October 24, giving  ourselves plenty of time to  cover the 280 miles. When one  hears the words'Bay of Biscay'  it is generally spoken with  respect. Notorious for howling  gales and rough seas, the Bay  was anything but. During my  entire six weeks in France it  had been like a mill pond. It  was under these conditions that  we set sail and it stayed that  way for the entire trip. Very  discouraging when one is trying  to test new gear. Dawn on the  26th still saw us 130 miles from  St. Malo.  I had just relieved Patrick at  the helm. It was 06:00. The sea  was almost flat, wind speed 3-5  knots, boat speed 2-3 1/2  knots, close-hauled indicator at  30 degrees. Incredible! This  new 5-ounce drifter and fully  battened main were making all  the difference. We were in thc  English Channel, freighters  constantly coming up behind  us. then passing. As the sun  broke through the horizon and  thc thin veil of mist lifted, I  noticed another sailboat 3  points off the starboard bow.  and at 3-4 miles distance. An  hour later she crossed our path  about half a mile ahead, went  another 200 feet, then tacked.  "A challenge."

Photo by Fran Berger  A MOVING EXPERIENCE  How do you plot the moves of your potential clients and customers?  Watch for studies like a recent one concluded by J.W. Simmons of the University of  Toronto, Department of Geography. Using recent census figures, Mr. Simmons  disclosed the following "moving" facts.  Intercity moves by Canada's far-flung population involves 11%% of all moves taking  place in the country every year. At the end of a given five-year period only a bit more  than half the citizens of the country can be found in the same house or apartment they  were in at the beginning of the period.  Moves are made within the same neighbourhood, across town and across the  country, but more than 4% of the moves of citizens over 5 years of age were registered  to another country.  Simmons says "The Canadian urban system is incredibly diverse, producing strong  variations in the patterns of population growth. These underlying economic, social  and cultural differences do not change rapidly."  He discovered, however, there was a reduction in migration from the Atlantic  provinces and the outflow from Southern-Ontario has increased. Also, people who  formerly moved to Toronto from Atlantic Canada have been abandoning the  metropolis and returning to the Atlantic provinces. 2. Sunshine Coast Realtor, August 22, 1980  At C?
