Also in the  picture from left to right are Kiwanis members, Ken Goddard, Bill Wright, Mo Girard, Ray and Greta Taylor, and John  Robinson.  For Gibsons Harbour  Strata development proposed  A group of three individuals  presented preliminary drawings to the February 18 meeting  of Gibsons Planning Committee of a proposed 75-unit  Strata-Title residential/commercial development for Lots  A and 2, located across from  the Fire Hall in the harbour  area of Gibsons.  Brian Johnson, speaking on  behalf of the group which  included Broth Garner and Vic  Laingj said that the approach  made on Februaty 18 was  intended as an exploratory  meeting and that if Council  reacted favourably, the group  would make a formal application.  Mayor Lorraine Goddard  said that the Village Planner  would have to review the  proposal as presented and then  report back to Council at the  March   17 Planning meeting.  The Planner indicated that the  finished presentation would  have to include detailed sketch  plans and elevations.  Mr. Laing, on behalf of the  same group, said that he had  been perusing the recent. P.  Eby report with respect to the  proposed Gibsons Marina and  noted that it seemed a potentially solid investment. Laing  asked if Council would be  willing to entertain a proposal  from private developers to  lease-manage all aspects of the  marina from construction  through to operation.  Mayor Goddard stated that  Council would be open to any  suggestion with respect to the  marina proposal.  Councils make peace  The misunderstanding between the Arts Council and the  Sechelt Council was cleared up  at the evening meeting on  Wednesday. February 20.  At a previous meeting, the  Sechelt Council had been left  with the impression that the  Arts Council was asking lor  unreasonable grants and that  "they were also asking the  Village to remove their works  yard and building from the  premises. The second request  had particularly annoyed  Council, as they had given the  Arts Council a live-year lease at  a  dollar  a   year,  with   the  Edmund Juneau must surely rank amongst the oldest voters in last week's federal  election.

Representatives of the Arts  Council, Keith Wallace and  Burrell Swartz explained that  the letters to the Village had  been misinterpreted. They were  primarily concerned with the  frontage area and it was not  their intent to rush Council into  moving the works yard. The  grant they were asking from  Council was so that they could  level and fill the area prior to  planting. Most of the shrubbery needed has already been  acquired by the Arts Council  and is presently in storage.  Alderman Hall volunteered to  supply them with fill from one  of his projects, and the Village  Superintendent George  Fawkes will be looking into the  practical aspects involved in  levelling the area.  Earlier in the meeting, a  letter from James Chabot, the  Minister of Lands, was circulated. The letter announced  that the Village of Sechelt has  been given a free grant of four  and one half acres of Crown  Land close to the Arena. This  land is.for use as a public  works yard.  RCMP  arrests  After intensive investigations, Gibsons RCMP  searched three local residences  and recovered several thousand  dollars' worth of stolen property.  Part of the stolen goods was  identified as being from the  February 2nd theft of $20,  000 in tools and office equipment from the MacMillan  Bloedel yard at Avalon Bay. It  appears that most of the  property from the theft has  been recovered. The remainder  ofthe goods appears to be from  various other recent thefts in  the area.  Four people were taken into  custody on Saturday, February  23rd. Two were later released.  Charged with being in possession of stolen property are  two Gibsons men, Keith Cool-  en and Thomas Dennis.  Pressure of business given as cause  Macdonald resigns from council  It was with regret that Mayor Boucher read out Alderman  Macdonald's resignation to the Council members at their meeting on  Wednesday, February 20.  The letter explained that increased business responsibilities had  forced him to mike the decision.  What this means to the electorate is that a by-election will now  have to be called to vote in a replacement. Formal public notice ofthe  by-election mutt be given no less than 30 days and no more than 45  days from receipt of the resignation, and the election must be held on  the' third Saturday following nominations. This will put the date of  the by-election at approximately May 3.  In an interview Alderman Larry Macdonald explained to the  Coast News that since the election one and one half years ago the  time commitments aotfc to his profession and Council hud greatly  increased.

From Ms experience tm Council he has come tu the conclusion  that, Instead of hiring three local governments, a single overall  governing body would avoid duplication and pro* ide mure service fur  the tax dollar. This should not be construed as a slight against the  two Sechelt Councils he has worked with, in both ( ouneils he fell Ihe  lines of communication were always open and problems Here always  able to be talked out.  Time and money put  Joint facility in some doubt  The future of the proposed  joint facility in Roberts Creek  seemed a little uncertain at a  meeting held between representatives of the Regional Board  and the local School Board on  Thursday, February 21.  The proposal is that the  Regional Board on a specified-  area basis contribute to the  construction of a full-sized  gymnasium-auditorium attached to the Roberts Creek  Elementary School, said structure to double as a replacement  for the aging Community Hall  in Roberts Creek.  Regional Director Harry  Almond of Roberts Creek told  the meeting that the cost ofthe  structure ws in the neighbourhood of $410,000. Of that sum,  $106,000 has been guaranteed  by the Recreation Facilities  Assistance Program of the  Provincial Government. Almond said that his community  group was hoping to get an  additional $30,000 from the  Recreation Facilities Assistance Program,  In addition to the $106,000,  $84,000 was available from  money voted the project by the  Regional Board. Additional  funding could come from the  Roberts Creek taxpayers with  the possibility of $70,000 from  the School Board at a future  date. The $70,000 from the  School Board has been allocated by the Ministry of Education  for the construction of two  additional classrooms for Rob-  At Sechelt Council  erts Creek School this year. If  the Joint Facility goes ahead,  the present gymnasium would  be converted into the two  classrooms.  Superintendent John Denley  pointed out that with two  classrooms required for September, time was a factor in the  School Board's deliberations.  "In addition," said the schools  Superintendent, "the school  program must have precedence  in the matter of timetabling."  School Trustee Brace Pu-  chalski from Roberts Creek  said that he could fdreiK no  difficulties in this regard.  "Basically the building would  be used by the school during  the day and by the community  in the evening," said Puchalski,  adding that only one community group was interested in  daytime use, that being the  senior citizens who would seek  use of the facility on only one  morning per week.  "An asset is being built to  which the community is contributing to make it a better  asset," said Puchalski.  While reserving their options  pending indication that the  joint facility would proceed  close to schedule, Ihe School  Board representatives agreed  to discuss the question of  leasing the land for the joint  facility al their next meeting.  scheduled for Wednesday,  February 27.  The ducks at the Sechelt Marsh always appreciate a handout during the winter  Timber Days and finances  Carl Chrismas, last year's  Chairman of the Timber Days,  informed Council that he  would be unable to act in that  position for this year's festivities. He will be looking for a  replacement as Chairman and  hoped to meet with council  early in March to help form a  Timber Days Committee. Carl  will stay on as Chairman ofthe  Logger Sports for this year.  Finance Chairman Macdonald requested that there be a  $50,000 reduction in expenditures in the upcoming budget. He recommended that this  be done by cutting back  $30,000 from Public Works  and $20,000 from recreation.  As a result of this move, Ihe  budget would show expenses  exceeding revenues by $50,000,  this would be made by using Ihe  surplus from previous years.  Alderman Hall asked lhat  the proposal be tabled until the  committee meeting on Tuesday, February 26.  Village Clerk Shanks informed Council that there had  been another minor accident at  the exit from the Dock's  parking lot. Council had a  motion on floor that the  parking by-laws be changed so  that two spaces on Cowrie  Street would be kept clear. The  Clerk explained that this was  not necessary and a simple  resolution from Council would  enforce the no parking area.  The resolution was carried.  Council passed a motion  standardizing the procedure  for the naming of streets. This  resulted from a letter from the  Osborne Logging Company  asking that an unnamed road in  Sunshine Heights be named  Fairway Avenue.  The suggested name was  turned down as it did not come  into line with the nautical  flavour of the Sechelt street  names and Osborne will be  asked to suggest another.  Alderman Hall presented a  motion stating that in the  future, to avoid complications,  the subdividers be given the  first chance at naming streets.  The name would have t" lit  within Ihe nautical theme and  there would be a lime limit of  one montli after the subdivision approval. If this was not  forthcoming, then the purchaser of the land would be  able (o submit a name.  Teachers back to class  by Geoffrey Madoc-Jones  Teachers became students  last Friday. While their pupils  enjoyed a day away from  classes, the teachers returned to  school to learn more about the  task of being effective.  The venue was Elphinstone  Secondary School and by 9  a.m. the main foyer was filled  with enthusiastic educators  chomping on the bit. The  theme of the day's work was  "Sharing", and much of the  initiative and expertise which  made the day possible came  from Ihe teachers in the District  themselves, led by Ken Rogers  and the Professional Development Committee.  Fourteen different sessions  were planned for the day,  ranging from a whole morning  workshop dealing with Stress  Management through Career  Education and Working with  TV and Audiovisuals in the  classroom to Rhythmics and  primary spelling.  A large group of elcmentariy  and secondary teachers of  English Language Arts used  the day as part of their yearlong writing programme. These  teachers had already met on  February 5th for an evening of  Basic Skill Development. The  instructors were Dr. Ken  Reeder and Dr. Syd Butler  from the Faculty of English  Education at U.B.C.  The Friday session was part  of a three-day workshop called  "Topics in the Teaching of  Writing". This entailed work  ing Irom 4 to 6 p.m. on  Thursday, night, through six  sessions .hi I riday. and then a  whole da) on Saturday      ,  The day was a bus) time hut  in the opinion ,.l most involved, a sery fruitful experience.

A heritage possibility  We would respectfully take issue with  Ihe Council of the Village of Gibsons in the  matter of their reaction to a brochure on  the Heritage Conservation Act. The  Planning Committee concluded that it was  difficult to determine any applicable site  which would fit the criteria and quite  frankly we find this more than surprising.  May we point out that in the Old Inglis  House which sits forlorn and decaying  across from the head of the wharf in the  Village of Gibsons is a heritage building of  the highest order. It can only be said that  the fact that we are in danger of losing our  heritage could not have a finer example  than this over-looking of the Inglis House  as a heritage site by the Gibsons Council.  The Inglis House has at least a twofold  claim for consideration as a heritage site.  First of all, insofar as the community is  concerned the house for many years was a  bona fide centre of the community. From it  Dr. Hugh Inglis and his father Dr.  Frederick Inglis dispensed medical  attention along the entire length of the  Sunshine Coast. It was doctor's office and  medical clinic for generations of the  Village's first settlers and this fact only  would qualify it as a valid heritage site.  But this is not, let us not forget, the Inglis  House's only claim to fame. Of national  interest is the fact that it was to this house  that J.S. Woodsworth and his family came  when he first came to realize, in Gibsons,  that he could not pursue his career in the  church. In the late night discussions which  must have taken place as the First World  War came to an end in the Inglis House the  seeds of the CCF party which Woodsworth  was to form were sowed. Irrespective ofthe  individual's personal partisan politics, it is  an unarguable fact that J.S. Woodsworth  is regarded as one ofthe saints of Canadian  politics and the house that gave him shelter  during the critical period between his  turning from the church which was his first  calling to the political arena he was to  grace on the federal scene for many years is  a house which deserves its place in  Canadian history.  it may be, upon careful reflection, that it  may not prove financially feasible to save  the old house for a heritage site. It may be  that the process of decay that it endures is  so far advanced as to make its restitution  unadvisable. But certainly it deserves  consideration ami active pursuit if at all  possible.  With discussion of the beautification of  the Gibsons Landing area and the  revitalization of the Village around the  harbour in the air, some thought should be  given to the preservation of this Fine old  building which was so long at the very  heartbeat of the Village of Gibsons. What  a site for a museum, for example, the old  house would make. Can a tourist centre be  better found?  We urge the association of Gibsons  Harbour business people who are looking  to the beautification of the Village to give  this matter some thought. We urge the  Council of the Village of Gibsons to  actively investigate the possibilities of  obtaining federal assistance in the  restoration to dignity and life ofthe Inglis  House.  A recent consultant from the Ministry of  Industry and Small Business Development  urged the Gibsons Harbour businessmen  to build something not new, but to build  something old. It is simply true that history  has its charms and any community looking  forward to developing the tourist trade  would be foolish to ignore the fact.  Good luck Canada  Now that the partisan fevers have  subsided and we find ourselves in the  familiar position of having a Liberal  government in Ottawa, lei's wish wisdom  and courage for those who guide the  country's destiny. Some adjustments in the  Canadian nation must take place in the  next few years and we wish the decision  makers nothing but success in their  deliberations on the country's condition  and future.  This marvellous decent potential which  is Canada must not be squandered by  timidity oravarice. If Pierre Eliot Trudeau,  regardless of past performance, can before  he leaves the political stage help his party  to take some steps towards ensuring the  future stability of his country he will have  earned his place in the history books ofthe  future. If not, his failure at a critical time  will, on the personal level, be as tragic as  the failure of the country he failed to save.  from the files of the  FIVE YEARS AGO  Dr. Hugh Inglis retires after 40 years  of practising medicine, most of them in  the Gibsons area.

TWENTY-FIVE YEARS AGO  Fire causes approximately $35,000  damage to the Fairway Service Station  located on the highway across from  the Pentecostal Church. Besides the  service station, the fire also destroyed  the Ivyette Beauty Salon and the  Fiedler family living quarters on the  second floor. The Fiedlers escaped  with only the clothes they were  wearing. Fire Chief Fred Feeney  thanked the Fire Departments of Port  Mellon and Sechelt for help rendered.  Dog packs are reported to be playing  havoc with deer in the Pender Harbour  area.  THIRTY YEARS AGO  The Public Utilities Commission will  hold public hearings on Union Estates  application for increased water rates in1  Sechelt.  Clarence Joe writes a column on  behalf of the Sechelt Indian Band for  the Coast News entitled Voice of the  Manitou.  A quote from E. Nestman's column in  the Coast News: "Made the trip to  Roberts Creek the other night to the  VON Board meeting in Dr. Inglis' car.  The doctor is a very brave man to  venture the trip, but on the way he  brought out his little black book and  every spot on the road where it was bad  he would stop and refer to the book  and we would get through. Passed a  couple of unfortunates on the way  home who had deserted the car. Left it  high and dry in the mud."  HMS Repulse is seen entering Vancouver Harbour, off Burnaby Light.  The battle cruiser, along with HMS Hood and several light cruisers,  formed a Special Service Squadron that toured the world during 1923-  1924. Although these warships appeared in B.C. waters on a peacetime  mission, their predecessors had from the times of Captains Cook and  Vancouver made the presence of the British Navy felt along the  Northwest Coast. Without the Admiralty's Pacific Squadron Base at  Esquimau, a Canada from coast to coast of North America could most  likely not have emerged. Launched in 1916, the Repulse displaced 3200  tons, had a complement of 967, and was capable of a speed of 32 knots.  During the early part of its world tour, General Billy Mitchell was  revealing the vulnerability of the unprotected battleship to air attack. In  December of 1941, along with HMS Prince of Wales, the Repulse was  sunk off Singapore by Japanese planes, with loss of all aboard. Here,  though, as it seems to fill the First Narrows, the sight of the dreadnought  can still awake a feeling of invincibility on the high seas. Gower Sutton  photo, courtesy E.S. Clayton collection L.R. Peterson  ,^-*a*e*  Musings  John Burnside  It is time, I think, to take a  break from the world of  politicians. Let's leave Pierre  Trudeau with his date with his  history and ours; leave Joe  Clark for what is to be sure a  well-earned vacation; let's wish  for Ed Broadbent a deserved  vacation and perhaps some  Quebec voters for his next go-  round; let's ignore Bill Bennett  and his new bridge for as long  as possible. Let's leave the  whole pack of them and turn  our attention as far from the  world of politics and politicians  as we possibly can for as long as  we can.  Where to turn? Certainly not  towards the Vancouver Canucks limping along near the  bottom ofthe league. Oh, sure  their recent trades may gel and  they may transform themselves  magically into a respectable  hockey team but perhaps it's  more likely to happen if we  don't pay too much attention  or hope too much.  No, having voted for the  NDPand loyally supported our  local hockey team through this  infuriating season I am in the  mood to consider champions  and on the West Coast there is  nowhere to go but lo the world  of soccer and the contemplation of the Vancouver White-  caps, our honest to goodness  North American champions.  Into every life a little winning  should be allowed, whether  vicarious or actual and of all  the teams for which I raise my  voice and my hopes only the  Vancouver Whitecaps have  repaid me of late with a  championship won.  It is appropriate that it is my  oldest and my first love which  thus in these days of chronic-  losing teams comes to my  rescue. As Scottish schoolboys,  soccer was the only real religion  that we recognized, We practised it diligently and at every  available moment with an  awesome ardour. In the games  before school, at recess, at  luncheon and the marathon  matches after school which  were terminated only with the  going of the light some degree  of proficiency was inescapable  and 20 years ago those diligent  years prepared me for a brief  taste of championship glory of  my own. Of course, this brief  glory could not have been mine  but for the fact that the  passions of Canadian youth  ran to ice hockey. Canadian  football, and baseball wilh  soccer at that lime a virtual  non-starter in the hearts of  Canadians.  My brief season of glory  came 20 years ago last tall while  I was enjoying simultaneously  at Macdonald College on the  west end ol Montreal Island mv  one and only luxurious year of  full-time study and the first real  love of my life. As if leisure and  love were not ample delights,  the fates also saw fit to give me  my first taste and my last of  athletic success in team sports.  The Macdonald Aggie soccer  team was comprised mainly of  robust agricultural students  with only a couple of us puny  leaching students making the  grade. We played the old style  with five defenders, five forwards and the goalie. I suppose  in these scientific days the  formation would be described  as a 5-5-1 formation. Ofthe six  defenders! including the goalkeeper, five were coal black  West Indians, the sixth a  steady, bustling North Country  Englishman. Another West  Indian played left wing with an  Italian playing inside him.  Yours truly, a Scot, played  centre forward, inside right was  a Hungarian Jew of great  soccer brilliance, outside right  was a White South African. A  veritable little League of  Nations of a team.  At six feet tall and 135 lbs. in  weight and wearing glasses I  was an extremely unlikely  figure in the centre of the  forward line. I earned the place  because 1 could run all day in  those blessed pre-smoking days  and because, having played  most of my years on mass  teams wilh a tennis ball, 1  proved to be adept at sticking  the ball in the net in the midst of  scrambles. In any case there 1  mm*  mm  M  was and very proud of it I can  lei I you.  I scored many goals, in fact  won the league scoring title,  that year thanks mainly to the  incomparable skills of Frank  Licberman playing alongside  me. Two of them I remember  with great vividness and delight  for different reasons. The first'  was the only goal I ever scored  which on the surface at least  seemed to be spectacular; the  second was the goal which won  me the league scoring title in  the last seconds ofthe last game  of the season. But more of that  one later and of the surprise  and chagrin felt On that  occasion by my friend and  teammate Frank Lieberman.  Let's turn our attention first  to my one and only spectacular  goal. This is the heretofore  untold inside story.  The day was a cold one in  November, freezing rain was  falling on the pitch of Loyola  College, our hosts. The field  was a morass of semi-liquid  mud which deepened virtually  into lakes in the areas around  the goal mouth where I could  be expected to be doing most of  my cavorting.  "I must try to stay on my feet  today," I told myself as I kicked  off to start Ihe game. 1 slipped  the ball to Lieberman who  turned it back to our centre half  whose name escapes me, the  lone Englishman on the defence. He swung il to the wing  and the speedy West Indian on  Please turn to Page Three.  mmmmmmmmmm  Signals  The guy next door nods out, missing The End  of the horror-movie on the Late Show;  screams fade to music in the cathode glow.  After the anthem, the test-pattern sends  a last signal, the vacant A-flat drone  of a heart monitor when steel and stitches  fail, the fanfare of death, before the switches  are turned off. The murderous monotone  cuts through glass and plaster into the night.  A cabdriver wipes blood off the back seat,  checks the cushions for change, and counts his sheet.  The cops are going for coffee; black and whites  parked at the curb with stuttering static  crackling on forgotten frequencies.  The lights are low in the Emergency;  nurses sneak a smoke, the wounded and sick  sigh in sedated sleep; solutions drip  time into ebbing veins. In the Morgue below  the strangled child has a tag on her toe.  On nightmare-narrow cots of jail men grip  the bars of sleep and plead their innocence  before hooded tribunals of the mind.  We're outlaw lovers, peeking through the blinds  of darkened hideout rooms. The hot silence  of cigarettes and sweat is broken by  eccentric rhythms of flesh; the rumble  of immutable drums, sending jumbled  maydays to the black and unending sky.  John Moore  m  Slings & Arrows >  \r%  George Matthews  3i s  1 suppose the prospect of a  western separatist movement is  no laughing matter, but with  the current discussion of  separatism in reaction to the  lack of Liberal representatives  in the West, I'm reminded of  my own experiences wilh  separatist movements in B.C.  As a student in the late 1950's  and early 60's, I was fascinated  by the prospect of an independent B.C. The motivations, I  suspect, had more to do with a  youthful romantic radicalism  and difficulty in respecting the  mystical sanctity of beavers  and maple leaves, than in any  genuine sense of political or  economic alienation. In any  case, whenever W.A.C. Bennett made disparaging remarks  about Ontario or someone  complained about freight rates  I would jump on Ihe bandwagon.  Just how bigour bandwagon  was was never very clear. Many  westerners in those days decried the influence of the East;  and upon reflection I think it  stemmed more from a sense of  inferiority than with any real  grievance, but when it came to  organizing a separatist movement in the province, not much  was going on. My first experience with a western separatist  movement was in about 1960,  when I read in the paper that a  mass rally of western separatists would be held in the Queen  Elizabeth Theatre in Vancouver. Wishing to get in on the  ground Hour of this unique and  worthwhile organization I  made arrangements to attend.  Realizing that the Q.E. Theatre-  had a capacity of fewer than  5,000,1 made sure 1 had a ticket  two weeks in advance. I even  bought five extra tickets for  some friends I thought would  be interested. As it turned out  my friends couldn't make it;  two had to sludy for exams, one-  had lo go shopping with his  mother, one had to babysit and  one had to buy a present for his  cousin's Bar Mitzvah. I didn't  mind; just being a pan of the  crowd of similar thinking  people made me forget the  money 1 put out for the tickets.  On Ihe appointed day, a  Sunday, I showed up an hour  early, in order to gel a good  seat. 1 was lucky; I was the first  person in the audience. I sat in  the center, in the third row  from the podium. By 2:00 p.m.  the audience had assembled,  me, a scruffy looking journalist and an old wino who sat in  the back row and snored. Can  you imagine, a huge hall,  capable of holding 5,000 souls,  with only three people? I asked  the journalist if we should sit  with the drunk so we would at  least look like a group; he  yaw ned and went back to sleep.  I felt so embarrassed for the  speaker. I don't remember a  word he said except to remember that about half way  through the second hour ofthe  speech, his voice had risen with  such passionate intensity that  he began to remind me of old  newsreels of Adolph Hitler I  had seen at school. So much for  the British Columbia Separatist Party.  My second run-in with  organized separatism came in  my second year of university. A  student I occasionally had  coffee with told mc about a  "secret organization" that met  once a week to discuss the  prospect of an independent  B.C. Despite my last disappointment, I expressed interest  and was consequently invited  to attend the next meeting. In  order to maintain security. I  was told that 1 would be picked  up at home and driven to Ihe  secret rendezvous. Two nights  later, an ancient Morris Minor  drove into the driveway. 1 was  told to put on a blindfold so 1  wouldn't know where I was  being taken. 1 told the driver I  would gel car sick if I couldn't  look out the window and he  said that he guessed I didn't  have to use the blindfold as  long as 1 pretended not to know  where I was going.  We arrived at the secret  rendezvous, a sleazy shack on  West Broadway, about 9:00  p.m. Upon entering, I was  greeted by a very loud record  player, which was screaming  out the strained tones of the  Horst Wessel song. I became  immediately wary, particularly  after seeing a Nazi flag on one-  wall and several large photographs of Der Fuhrer himself  on the other. The room also-  contained three grubby young  men and several dozen empty  beer bottles. They welcomed  mc with a peculiar handshake  and some German words, and  told me that their leader would  be there soon.  When the leader arrived. 1  discovered he was a salesman  from Seattle who made money  moonlighting by smuggling  German army momentoes into  B.C. and selling them to kooks.  weirdos and motorcycle gangs.  It was hard to take seriously, a  40 year old man wearing a Nazi  army helmet and talking about  the independence of B.C. to  three beer guzzling students in  the basement room of a shack  on West Broadway.  Since that time, whenever I  hear talk of Western separatism, I recall my own experiences and have a good laugh. In  Ihe present instance, the best  that can be said of the people  talking separatism for the West  is that there hearts, if not their  heads, may be in the right  place.

Editor:  When Greenpeace first announced its campaign to bring  attention to the herring roe  fishery on the West Coast we  were greeted with threats of  violence and bloodshed. Now  that a few months have passed  and the initial flurry of emotions is behind us, perhaps a  more sober presentation of the  facts will expose Ihe herring roe  fishery for what it really is���a  wasteful, shortsighted approach towards one of the most  valuable links in the food chain  on our Pacific continental  shelf.  Following is a summary of  ihe Greenpeace position on the  herring roc fishery:  - Since I976 the catch of  herring has steadily decreased  despite heavy fishing effort. In  I979 the catch was 40% below  the previous year, and this year  it is predicted thai ihe catch will  be 20'.'l lower than last. Fisheries Deparlment estimates  have been consistently optimistic and therefore we may expect  a decline of even greater than  20% in 1980.  - The herring roe Fishery is  incredibly wasteful, with only  14% of ihe body weight being  utilized for direct human  consumption while the rest of  Ihe valuable fish protein is  ground up for use as animal  feed.  - There is no accurate  {assessment of the present  .; stocks or of the population  \ trends ofthe herring species on  ^ the B.C. Coast. This is pri-  ��� marily due to the fact that only  '��� $106,000 was spent on herring  ���-research in 1979 even though  the landed value ofthe fish was  $200 million.  - It is foolish to kill all the  .herring just lo gel their eggs.  .This is a case of killing the  .goose even before il lays its  .golden egg. If the herring are  .not killed, they will come back  for live or six consecutive years  to lay their eggs. For thousands  of years the native people took  .advantage of this fact and  .placed hemlock boughs in the  .water upon which the herring  .would deposit their roe which  ,was harvested and eaten.  . The herring roe fishery is  almost completely exploitive.  There is little or no effort to  concentrate on the preservation of herring spawning areas  ,or of enhancement of spawning  areas that have been damaged  ,by industrial activity.  - In its present form, the  fishery is socially wasteful in  that a very few people make a  ployment rate is at a record  high. The use of Fishing methods which involve harvesting  the roe rather than the entire  fish would create much higher  employment in the industry  and would share the wealth  among coastal residents.  - The entire herring roe  fishery is controlled by the  Japanese trading companies  and the Japanese market. This  can hardly be in the long term  interests of either the herring or  Ihe people of British Columbia.  There is some suspicion that  Ihe Federal Fisheries Deparlment has actually lost control  entirely and thai all ils new  regulations arc too laic.  - One final point is the fact  thai the Japanese government  defends its continued whaling  industry on the basis that the  protein from Ihe whales is  necessary for human nutrition  in Japan, in particular for the  school   lunch  program.   The  credibility of this position is  undermined by the fact that as  much as 30,000 tons of herring  are reduced to fishmeal in order  to provide 5,000 tons of a  luxury food item for wealthy  Japanese.  Greenpeace has achieved  tremendous effectiveness  through its initial statements  and policy positions or. the  herring roe fishery. Only last  week the former Minister of  Fisheries, James McGralh,  announced in Nanaimo thai he  was in favour of phasing out  the fishery because ofthe threat  to dwindling herring stocks.  Greenpeace has therefore  decided that there will be no  physical confrontation wilh the  B.C. herring Heel this year. Wc  will continue lo keep a close eye  on Ihe progress of the fishery  and the effectiveness of Ihe  Fisheries Deparlment in bringing about badly needed changes in herring management.  The Greenpeace directors  have decided instead that the  top priority issue for an active  campaign in the coming year  will be an all-out effort to stop  the continued use of supertankers to transport oil from  Alaska down the B.C. Coast  and through the Straits of Juan  de Fuca. This 'disaster waiting  to happen' is an immediate  threat not only to the herring  fishery but to the entire  fisheries and recreational potential of our rich and beautiful coastline. We hope that the  people of B.C. will join together now in an effort unlike  any undertaken since the battle  to stop nuclear testing in  Amchitka. We won the battle  and with perscrverancc and  determination we can win this  one too.

Like  mc, he has a load of obscure  information in his head gleaned  from many hours spent in  cheap theatres and studying the  credits in Screen Romances.  But Al has carried his star-  struck fantasizing a notch  further than mine. He actually  has aspirations of becoming an  actor. "Hell, man, we can save  up our loot, get down to  California and enroll in Pasadena Playhouse. Working in  movies would be a lot better  than this nowhere scene."  "Yeah, you're sure as hell  right there," I say, letting the  pipe dream take me along with  the alcohol. It's an exciting idea  all right and sometimes 1  almost believe we might actually do it. But in truth, I'm not  all that unhappy with our  present situation. There might  not be a lot of future in  Cinnamon River but it certainly isn't a bad place to work. For  the first time in my life, I'm on  my own with money in the  bankandacushyjobtoboot. I  feel almost complacent.  For the past couple of years,  I had been cutting shakes on  my mother's property near the  mouth of the Sound. But the  cedar had run out along with  the last shred of patience for my  erratic-tempered partner, Mike  Milano. Our relationship had  degenerated into a series of  nervous truces punctuated by  violent arguments and a couple  of drunken fist-fights. The  situation had become wholey  untenable and, beyond the  logging camps (which I had  sworn to eschew) I had run out  of job opportunities in that  area anyhow. The unexpected  receipt of a small inheritance  from England had served to  expedite my departure.  If I had followed my usual  senseless bent, I would probably have squandered most of  the money before even looking  for work. But some unfamiliar  stirring of responsibility stayed  my hand. Here I was, almost 26  with no direction or purpose in  life while my younger brother  was already married with a son  and learning a trade in Kitimat.  Full of brave resolve, I left Ihe  money in the bank and hired  out on the yard crew to the pulp  mill at Cinnamon River.  I had hardly set fool in the  place when I realized I had  lucked into, at least temporarily, the softest berth of my life  lo that point. One of the yard  crew's main duties was to  longshore pulp on the deep sea  ships. However, the main  wharf had collapsed shortly  before my arrival and a huge,  several-month repairjobwasin  progress. Without the long-  shoring, there was only enough  legitimate yard work for about  half the men on the bull gang.  Charitably enough, the Company had chosen to keep a lull  crew on stand-by rather than  lay anyone off. Resultantly, we  surplus junior men were assigned on most days, lo make-  work projects of the most  tenuous sort. One of these  actually involved pulling weeds  along the back roads of the  townsite. We were proffered  coffee and even beer on occasion, by friendly housewives  while performing this amiable  chore. Apart from the inevitable boredom and a nagging sense of futility engendered by such time wasting  jobs, I suppose we were living  the Life of Riley by most  standards.  Trouble with the Life of  Riley, it tends to leave you with  too much excess energy and  time on your hands. I began to  spend too many of my off-  hours in Ihe busy local Legion  along with the rest of them. It  was a long, narrow, congenial  place of endless dart games and  seemingly bottomless beer  kegs. Hell, what did it matter if  you went to work with a  hangover  in a lacksidaisical  environment like this? We went  to work with hangovers, more  often than not. This was hardly  the son of 'meaningful new  direction' I had beep vaguely  seeking; rather, a , kind of  pleasant limbo. But I imagined  things would shape'up a bit  after the wharf was repaired. In  the meantime, I gfitted nty  teeth and surrendered myself to  the situafion.  It is against this background  that 1 sil with Little Al, one  Friday night, about a month  into Cinnamon River, juggling  implausible visions.

Off the shelf   by John Moore  The dramatic birth of the  embryonic science of archaeology was greeted with even  greater hostility than the  radical revision of "history"  forced by developments in the  older science of geology in the  late 19th century. In 18S6, the  unearthing of our bandylegged, beetle-browed Ice Age  cousin from a cave in the valley  of the Neander River in Germany provoked the apologists  for Archbishop Ussher's "Biblical" chronology to publish  papers proving that the skeleton was everything from a  microcephalic idiot to the  remains of a rickety Cossack.  This is hardly surprising,  since the "primitive" features of  Neanderthal man went dead  against the grain of Christian  doctrine. They suggested that  perhaps man was not created  "in the image of God", but in  fact had developed, descended  or evolved from a more primitive form. Though the world  would have to wait another  three years for the publication  of Charles Darwin's Origin of  Species, (currently available in  Pelican paperback and still  very much worth reading), the  ideas had already been in the  wind for the better part of the  century.  One book that catches the  spirit of the times, the exciting  public debates between ecclesiastic and scientific orators,  many of which were enlivened  by cutting wit and a marked  degree of personal enmity, the  papers and counter-papers  propounding theories that are  often humourous in retrospect,  and the activities of the small  scientific "societies" of amateurs that flourished in England in particular, is Ronald  Millar's The Piltdown Men  (Paladin Books. 1974. $2.95).  The Piltdown Men is sub  titled, "A Case of Archaeological Fraud" and that is what  makes it more than a mere  recapping of the careers of the  pioneer archaeologists. The  Piltdown Men is a "true"  detective story, for Piltdown  Man, the great English fossil  discovery of the 19th century,  having helped vindicate the  theory of human evolution and  made it into all the textbooks,  was discovered in 1953 to be a  fake, a forgery, and a clumsy  one at that.  Piltdown Man was nothing  more than the skull of a  relatively modern woman combined with the jaw of an  orangutan. Both pieces were  stained with preservative,  which also had the effect of  making them appear older, and  the teeth of the skull had been  filed to disguise their true  origin. What adds a peculiar  twist to the story is the  circumstances of the find.  Piltdown Man, for many years  billed as the "missing link"  between man and the apes, was  discovered in 1912 in Sussex by  Charles Dawson, a solicitor by  profession and a respected  amateur archaeologist. When  the fakery was discovered, the  long-dead Dawson was the  natural target of a great deal of  posthumous abuse.  Though he never made a  dime from his discovery, it was  assumed that vanity and the  recognition of posterity had  been his motives. Ronald  Millar begins his vindication of  Dawson with the obvious  question; did Dawson himself  possess sufficient anatomical  knowledge to have faked bones  that would fool not only other  archaeologists, but professional anatomists as well? The  answer is simply no. Dawson's  find underwent a rigourous  vindication by the English  scientific community, though  several   members   had   their  doubts. Unfortunately, much  of this vindication again took  the form of public debates,  obscured by personal rivalries  among the participants. Professional reputations were still  at stake over the issue of  evolution and Dawson's find  was siezed on by many who  were more interested in vindicating themselves rather than  authenticating the skull itself.  There was also the problem of  national pride. Until 1912,  remains of Neanderthal and  Cro-Magnon man had been  discovered only on the Continent of Europe, primarily in  France and simple petty jealousy no doubt played an  important role in the ready  acceptance of the first "English" fossil man, older than all  the others to boot, the vital  "missing link" on which so  many reputations depended.  But if Dawson did not fake  Piltdown Man, the obvious  conclusion is that someone else  not only did, but "salted" the  dig in Sussex; someone with  sophisticated anatomical  knowledge who knew of Dawson's excavations in Sussex.  Millar builds a fascinating case  against one of the players in the  drama, drawing him gently out  of the shadows in which he  remained for over 60 years,  chuckling no doubt at the  gullibility of his hard-headed  rationalist scientific colleagues.  I'm not going to give away his  identity or Millar's attempt to  assess his motives. It's far to  good a story and more than  anything else, it should serve to  remind us that scientists are  only human beings like the rest  of us; subject to the same  desires for fame and respect,  given to the same petty jealousies and even to the purely  mischievious urge to pull a  practical joke on those who  style themselves our betters. All  for now.  At Fitzgerald's  Eating out in Gibsons  Tired of muskrat stew and  moose soup? Fed up with  molasses, wheatgerm and Kraft  dinner? How about going out  to dine!!  Formerly the Sunshine  Coast boasted about a half  dozen eateries and most of  these uninspired with their  captive patrons. In the last few  years we have seen that number  double and become more  varied in their specialities. The  Coast News has decided to  conduct a gastronomic odyssey  into and through some of the  newer establishments and to  revisit some of ihe older, more  familiar places. In short we  intend to gobble our sporadic  way from the Langdale ferry to  the Powell River terminal  giving our inspired opinion  along the way. Hopefully we  will peek at kitchens and get to  know and photograph the  proprietors and perpetrators as  we munch. We plan on taking  our time and we would like to  be able to give our readers an  idea of what we discover that's  delicious and will not completely demolish any family's  faltering exchequer. One certain and noticeable result of so  many newcomers to this field  will be the resurrection of  competition and the general  smartening of the more recognized standbys. Wc hope.  Fitzgeralds is a toney replacement built upon the  graffiti that was the old  Dogwood Cafe. The Dogwood  will be ever remembered as the  fly-specked setting for as mad a  motley collection of local  colour as was ever assembled  by central casting in the old  days of Hollywood. Fitzgeralds  decor is understated elegance in  browns and off-whites in  contrast to the sweeping panoramic view of Gibsons Harbour. Dining at dusk includes  the deepening cobalt of water  and sky completed by the  sparkling orange, pink and  busy flourescent lighting. Purple shadows, reflected boats,  Keats Island and all the activity  provide romantic ambiance  that lends enchantment to an  evening out.  Your hosts are sunny Richard Abams, serious Terry  Karkabe and talented Bruce  Kayes, who takes care of the  books and ordering. Rarely  seen Den Mother is charming  Joan Thompson (she of the  flying serape). Angela Hilstad  is your obliging waitress. It has  been a vast undertaking for  these young men to sink their  all into this Lower Gibsons  venture and their enterprise  deserves the greatest encouragement. As a group they are  helpful, charming, chatty and  most anxious to please.  Their menu is comparable to  any of the better Vancouver  restaurants with good soups,  hor's d'oeuvres and delicious  local seafoods. They always  have a huge prime rib in the  oven and from this you get a  thick rare slab that many prefer  to steak for flavour. Their meat  is excellent quality, the steaks  are delicious and you can taste  the difference. Their prices are  comparable, Ihcir sense of fun  is different. Of course the four  are taking their work seriously  but their natural humourous  exuberance spills over to make  the evening a friendly encounter as well as a night away  from the stove.  Richard (the only real newcomer to the business and the  only one to have gained weigh!)  and Terry hope to encourage  more people to stop by for a  glass of wine and a platter of  tasty hor's d'oeuvres and to feel  comfortable without necessarily ordering a whole dinner.  They plan a Brunch Club and a  special seating for local people  during the tourist season. They  hope for a piano bar and a  spontaneous casual atmosphere. Their attitudes are  bright and ever open to light-  hearted suggestion.  We wish them every success  and we welcome their tasteful  contribution to the revitali-  zation of Lower Gibsons  Landing.

The instructor will  discuss and explain the legal  rights and obligations of the  average law abiding citizen  when he or she gets into a  potential or real conflict with  the law. It might boil down to a  question of "to blow or not to  blow", common driving offenses, defending a traffic ticket  or to the right to carry guns or  how to deal with assault,  perjury, occultism, witchcraft  and other esoteric crimes.  The second session on March  5 will mainly be devoted to the  money side of the courts and  deals, among other subjects,  with questions such as "What  to do when the writ arrives?";  collections; small claim actions; execution against debtors; foreclosures; bankruptcy  and insolvency and several  more.

Coast News, February 26,1980  On listening to radio  Maryanne's viewpoint  by Maryanne West  As a former dedicated listener to CBC-AM radio who now  listens only occasionally I  cannot let CBC's Radio promotion week go by without a  tribute to its former excellence  and to the producers, broadcasters and freelancers who so  lovingly crafted those programmes, now alas long gone  or removed from us to FM. but  not forgotten. They are the  yardstick by which many of us  liidge today's programming  and feel we are being short  changed.  Subject matter or content  was then the focal point of  everyone's concern. How best  ti> present the material, in  documentary form, round  table discussion, lormal debate, interview, satire maybe,  critical review or a variety of  different approaches. And time  was flexible, an hour or maybe  two if warranted, even longer  for a full length classical play.  Those were the days when  CBC brass wasn't hung up on  how dumb the man in the street  is. nor took it upon themselves  to judge our collective IQ. They  assumed, rightly, that Canadians whether they live in  urban highrise, Indian village  or logging camp, and whatever  contributions they make to  society are reasonably intelligent, thinking people, who  welcome the opportunity to  flex their intellectual muscle.  CBC radio listeners played in  the big leagues, with opportunities to stretch their minds and  reach out to the great minds of  the day, no one talked down to  us or suggested we might be out  of our depth, so, although we  maybe had to oft-times scramble to keep up, it was exciting,  exhilarating and fun.  Now, CBC is obsessed with  the numbers game, with catering to the popular taste,  whatever that is, the magazine  format reigns supreme, and all  content is chopped and edited  to fit its requirements and its  limitations. We are presumed  to have the attention span of a  backward pre-schooler, so to  keep us hooked the tempo  changes every 10 to I5 minutes.  There's nothing intrinsically  wrong with a magazine format.  It's particularly suitable for  busy times of day and for  certain types of material. But  you can have too much even of  a good thing. With a two hour  respite in the early afternoon,  Radio I offers us nothing but  the magazine format's frenetic  pace. Electronic wallpaper  which soon becomes just that,  background to which you only  really listen when something of  interest catches your ear.  Blair Kirby of the Globe and  Mail described magazine programmes as little bits of  anything and everything, prepackaged like sausages. A very  apt metaphor. Sausages,  though not especially nutritious, titivate the taste buds and  are good once in a while, but as  a perpetual diet���no thanks.  How one longs for a good, solid  steak, or just honest-to-good-  ncss bread and cheese, something to get one's mental teeth  into. OH, I know the magazines are often, like the curate's  egg, "good in parts", but who  needs their steak chopped up or  doled out in bite size pieces day  by day?  Don't you think the CBC  which is funded by us and  belongs to us, should provide  more for its AM listeners than  background and entertainment? No one is suggesting that  entertainment isn't important,  nor that the CBC shouldn't  programme for the widest  possible range of taste, but that  includes my needs for serious  programming too.  As everyone, except those  cocooned in the CBC's Bay St.  radio bunker in Toronto, easily  understands, a system of  specialized networks which  works well in a tight little island  like Britian is not suitable for  the vastnesses of Canada, and  while the FM signal may be the  technology of the future, it still  leaves significant numbers of  Canadians out in the cold.  Of course, such a system  looks good on paper, nice and  neat and orderly, AM for  entertainment and FM for  serious programming and allows the CBC in its patronizing  way to pretend it's educating us  so that having discovered soap  operas and light comedy on  AM wc will progress to more  serious drama on FM.  The whole silly nonsense is  really too ludicrous to be taken  seriously, but apparently CBC  have talked themselves into  believing their own rhetoric,  including the inimitable Margaret Lyon's statement that  "the old audience is dead" and  stands by its blueprint, however minisculc its FM audience.  No changes can be made���AM  programming can be repeated  on I M but not the other way  around.  Three months ago, November 26, hearing that changes  were going to be made in April  to the week night evening  programmes between 8:00-  10:00 p.m. I wrote to Peter  Herrndorf, top of the Toronto  radio totem pole, asking if one  evening per week could be set  aside for repeats from FM. It  didn't seem much to ask, two  hours out often, for those who  would appreciate an evening to  sit back and listen to Festival  Theatre or a discussion from  the Ideas series.  To date, I haven't even had  an acknowlegement of my  letter; so much for the President's promise two years ago  that CBC would become much  more responsive to its audience.  So, I'm sorry, but it seems  unlikely that this week's programming "will change the  way" I listen to radio.

This is a wage  assistance program available to  farms, businesses and nonprofit organizations.  The field co-ordinator for  the Sunshine Coast, Marta  Teodorowycz, visited the area  during the latter part of last  week and left the applicable  forms at the Post Offices in  Gibsons and Madeira Park,  and at the Canada Manpower  Centre in Sechelt, where they  are available upon request.  To be eligible, a business  must have been in operation in  B.C. for at least one year prior  to the application. Non-profit  organizations must be incorporated by March 10, 1980.  Employers must hire on a  wage scale no less than the  present minimum wage. Businesses will receive from $ 1.40 to  $2.50 per hour in reimbursement, and $3.40 to $3.70 per  hour will be available to nonprofit organizations.  Businesses or farms must  provide continuous employment for a minimum of two  months (40 working days) or  up to four months between  April 1, 1980 and March 31,  1981. Extensions are available  incertain cases. Allow four to  six weeks for processing.  In a non-profit situation,  employment must be provided  from a minimum of 40 working  days, up to a maximum of 87  days, between May 1,1980 and  August 29, 1980. The deadline  for the non-profit application is  March 10.  The objectives of this program are to develop skills  useful in the work force and to  create employment opportunities in the Province.  If you are interested, the  forms are available at the aforementioned locations.  Halfmoon Bay  STOVES  Welded Steel Airtights  Custom work done.

Inglis  Sunshine Coast  United Churches  Missionaries from the third  world to Canada���why not?  Let us take a look at the  possibilities; the viability of  missionaries from the emerging  nations of Africa, in particular,  coming to Canada with the zeal  for Christ in their eyes. Would  they have the colossal effrontery to believe that they had  anything to offer to this highly  civilized, well churched, Christian society?  First of all, consider the  commission under which they  would be working���the Great  Commission of Matthew 28:19!  This commission is truly and  powerfully addressed to every  person who believes in Christ,  and who seeks to do his  bidding, and the records show  that there are thousands of  converts to Christ all over the  African continent, and their  zeal has turned such staid  meetings as the World Council  of Churches conclave at Nairobi into a fountain of blessing  and a torrent of witnessing that  has probably never been rivalled in the history of the  Christian church.  Secondly, consider the rationale they would have for  selecting Canada as a mission  field, and I think we would  agree that a major consideration would be the need for  witness, teaching and healing.  We do not have to go very far  afield to realize that Canada  has become a nation in which at  least two full generations have  only the most rudimentary  knowledge of the teachings of  the church, and a vague and  often distorted understanding  of the mission of Christ in his  earthly ministry.  Thirdly, the mission thrust  toward conversion indicates a  need for a complete change in  life-style, such as Jesus' own  mission in attempting to turn  the Jews of the 1st century  Palestine right around, from a  hollow and empty ritualistic  worship to an all-embracing  and unquestioning acceptance  of God's will, and an unequivocal obedience to his commandments for love. It would  not take a great research  analyst to realize that today's  highly competitive, highly  acquisitive, highly self-centred,  and highly skeptical society in  Canada is on a 180 degree  course leading directly away  from the meekness, humility,  and unselfish desire to serve  God and serve others���with  the exception of a small  minority, which might be  compared with the faithful  remnant of the Jewish people,  in whom Jesus' message took  root and bore fruit, resulting in  the birth of the Christian  church.  This certainly does not  include other countries, notably our neighbours to the  south, who are on the "me-  generation", secular bandwagon, but it is simply that  Canada is the focus for these  writings.  Fourthly, the mission call  must of necessity be accompanied by the willingness to  accept hardship as the daily  lifestyle, as our Lord pointed  out in many places, including  Luke 9:57-62. There is no  doubt that the emissaries from  the third world would be  coming from a simple and  Spartan   lifestyle,   compared  NOTICE BOARD  warn-  Phone 886-2622 lr  Ministry ol Human Resourcee  in recognition or Human Resources week, invites the public to an  Open House, at our office on Dolphin St., Sechelt (above the  OK Tire Store), Wednesday.

Fifthly, the missionaries  should have the ability to  communicate the message of  the gospel well, by teaching and  by example. Most of the  emerging nations have educational systems which, while  lacking some of the frills, still  teach the English language to a  degree that cxcclls, and the  missionaries leaving African  shores would have a greater  facility with the language of the  "foreign" country than many  Canadians have with their own  language today. Add to this the  ability to portray by example  the humble lifestyle of Jesus  and his disciples, and we begin  to see the great possibility for  these third world country  missionaries, if and when they  do arrive, being effective  messengers for Christ.  Finally, there should be a  strong faith, and a deep sense of  commitment. Those who have  met the "new breed" of Christian  in  the African nations  testify to a vast ground-swell of  faith that is not unlike the early  days of the Christian church,  when the good news of the  gospel was spreading like wild  fire throughout the world, and  a sense of commitment that  strikes deeply at the roots ofthe  everyday life of the converts,  not just at Sunday worship and  weekday apathy.  Those of us who have had the  privilege of studying with some  of these new converts from  Africa can testify to a dedication and zeal that was at once  heart warming, and embarrassing, as we compared their  outlook with that ofthe run-of-  the-mill seminarian. There was  little doubt in the minds of  most of us that these third  world delegates would hold  their own in any Christian  enterprise they undertook, and  most of us felt we would have to  run hard to keep up with them,  in their consuming desire for  knowledge.  Those are all the good  points, the assets possessed by  many, of the burgeoning Christian movement in the emerging  nations, and they would appear  to point to the possibility of a  third world missionary trek to  Canada being eminent, but not  quite!  When the missionaries from  the European countries, and  latterly the U.S. and Canada,  set out to colonize for Christ,  they were going to simple and  unsophisticated   people,   who  Coast News, February 26,1980  "were much closer to the  desirable state of being like  children in their ability to be  receptive to the gospel message���which our Lord pointed  out in such passages as Luke  10:15, etc. in the gospels.  When Ihe missionaries carried the gospel message they  were taking a new and often  revolutionary social, ethical  and religious concept, for the  most part, and the very novelty  of their appearance and their  behaviour made them exciting  and eventful instruments of  revelation.  Quite the contrary, in the  case of missionaries to Canada!  They would be bringing a Mon  which has largely been repudiated and ignored, to a people  7.  who are worldly wise and  sophisticated in their rejection  ofthe practitioners of this faith  stance, right within theirmidst.  This may not make the idea  of attempting to convert the  incorrigibles, such a palatable  project. It would have to hinge  on just how strongly the call to  witness was.  Maybe we should be recruiting, instead of conjecturing!  *** ***** *******  NDP  no*s ro#  ************ ,f *;  Working together to improve Gibsons Landing  Gibsons Harbour Business Association meets the 1st Thursday of every month at 7:30 p.m.  Next meeting: Thursday, March 6th, 7:30 p.m. at the Heron Cafe  Variety  jFoobs.

Venice Bakery s  English MuNlns .^n,^  Mrs. Willman's  English Crumpets >2��z Pkg ��f s  850  650  X  Saint David's Day  Just recently it was Hearts and Flowers week.  Now it's the turn of the Daffodils and the Leeks.  Yes! It's time to celebrate Saint David's Day. You  surely can excuse a little chauvinism just once a  year. On March the first one's mind, of course,  turns to Wales and all things Welsh. Not only does  one reminisce about the Eisteddfodau and the  perfection of the landscape and the warmth of the  people, but your taste buds tremble with nostalgia  when remembering Welsh cooking. Welsh lambs  frolicking innocently over the rolling hills soon to be  popped on one's plate with mint sauce���a true sign  of Spring. Welsh cooking may not be exactly haute  cuisine but it's not all leeks and laver bread either.  Try serving Honeyed Lamb . Take a  shoulder or leg of lamb and rub in to it a tablespoon  of rosemary and some salt and pepper. Place it in  the bottom of a casserole dish. Pour 1 cup of honey  and I cup of cider over it and cook it at 400 degrees  for 30 minutes. Baste it, then turn down the heat to  325 degrees and bake for one more hour. Baste it  just ���! couple of times. Remove any fat from the  gravy that has formed around it and serve it as an  accompaniment to the lamb.  To accompany it you could try leeks, best  steamed,   or   minted   peas.    Try   serving  rfl  Punchnep. Cook four medium sized potatoes  and mash them thoroughly. In another saucepan  cook about a pound of parsnips. Mash them up too.  It's important to cook them separately because  there's a difference in cooking times and the flavour  gets distorted if you cook them together. When they  are both mashed, mix them thoroughly together  with a tablespoon or so of margarine and salt and  pepper, and about half a cup of cream or half and  half.  To finish-off a Welsh style meal you could try  Pwdin Efa. Prepare four large apples. Slice them  thinly and place in a baking dish with two  tablespoons of water, the juice of half a lemon and  four tablespoons of golden syrup. Bake at 350  degrees for 10 minutes. Stir in two heaped  tablespoons of flour until mixed and gradually add a  cup and a half of milk stirring until the mixture is  somewhat thickened. Remove from heat and add  one teaspoon of vanilla essence and two  tablespoons of sugar. Separate two eggs and stir in  the yolks. Remove the apples from the oven. Whip  up the egg whites till they stand in stiff peaks and fold  gently into the custard mixture. Pour this over the  apple mix, return to the oven and bake at 350  degrees for about 40 minutes.  Happy Saint David's Day, everyone.

It is only five  years ago that we purchased new scales and cash  registers. At that time electronic cash registers  were already on the market but, we felt,  insufficiently tested and advanced. The machines  we have now purchased were being talked about  as the next thing.  'Tec' Interface Scale and Cash Registers  will provide us and our customers with extremely  accurate scale readings, price enumeration,  extensions, and detailed check-off information.  The scales and cash registers are interfaced  electronically in such a manner that when an item  passes over the scale, the weight, weight per  pound, and extension will be automatically  computed, flashed on the customer 'reader' and  printed on the tape.  The mechanics of this computer cash register  are simple when understood. All bulk (scale)  items are given an identity number (PLU) and the  price of each is programmed into the machine; all  computations are done by the machine to 1/1000  of a pound. If a scale is out of balance, or 'hungup'  in anyway, the machine will not function. We've  always said we want our weight, our price,  accurately extended and nothing more, nothing  less���so do our customers!  The customer tape is very neatly, clearly  printed. It gives complete information as to date,  the cash register number at which the purchase  was made, departmental information, weight,  price per pound and extension of all scaled items,  amount of purchase, amount of cash tendered  and the change. We think this is useful  information.  We realize we are not the first to possess this  type of equipment, but we are among the first! We  are the first installation in Canada for 'Tec'.  How does one feel to be the first? How does  anyone feel to take the first step, a step you have  to take on your own judgement? We believe we've  given it enough thought to have chosen the right  product for our purpose. We are confident that  we will be given special consideration by the  manufacturer and their representative The  Scale Shop, Vancouver, to ensure that the  equipment gives satisfactory service.  In the meantime please bear with us as we  attempt to adapt the 'human element' to the new  machinery and new techniques. Computers, we  are told, are only as good as the information we  put into them!  By the way,���they speed up service too. Be  ready with your purse open, your cheque book  out! It replaces frowns with smiles on the faces of  those behind you!!  Shop with confidence, our prices are very competitive.  Ule will not he undersold on these advertised Items.  me fully guarantee everything we sell to he satisfactory,  or money cheerfully refunded.  "Wl   ' ������!,��������' 10.

Barb came in sixth, which was  not bad considering that this  was her first tournament and  the competition was really  tough. The girl who won rolled  a 812 triple and that was under  pressure as the other four were  right behind her. Rick came in  fourth and his biggest problem  was 'too many headpins' in the  wrong spot.

Louis Joseph Pajak  Report from  Deserted Bay  On the way up to Deserted  Bay on Monday, we stopped at  Vancouver Bay fish hatchery.  We saw some eggs, alevin and  fry. Alevin is when the fish still  have the yolk sac attached to  them and fry is just after they  finish with the yolk sac.  Darcy Darrien and John  Faustmann came up with us on  Monday and stayed with us for  a couple of days. They were  both writing articles for  newspapers and enjoyed  staying with us, as well as we  enjoyed having them with us.  Some of the students canoed  about two miles up the river  and some other students went  and explored the old cabins on  the side of the river. All of the  students went out to watch  some prawn fishermen bring in  their traps and then set them  out again. We also went to  Minnie Solberg's house and  looked at her animals and  water wheel.  We had some guest speakers,  they were Yvonne and  Margaret Joe. They taught us  some Indian language and  Margaret made us some Indian  bread.  THE PRICE  What is it?

It is the Price,  battling with the large sea...  And winning.  Age 47  Lou Pajak was a man who  walked tall in Canada's oil  industry, from the time he  decided, at age 17, to abandon  a brilliant scholastic career in  favour of the oil fields.  He was recognized in the  Canadian oil and gas industry  as a top authority on blow-out  prevention and well control,  and he will be sorely missed in  the industry he devoted his life  to.  He was the kind of man  about whom a veteran oil  pioneer from early Turner  Valley days once said, "1  thought I knew a lot about oil  drilling until I met Lou Pajak".  Lou was born in Evansburg,  Alberta, and was a leading  student in Evansburg High  School, but he left school to  start work on the drilling rigs,  against the urgings of his  teachers to continue his education.  He was a driller for Commonwealth, Reading and  Bates, and Canadian Superior  Oil Company, spent 13 years  working for Peter Bawden of  Calgary in various jobs,  including field supervisor.  He spent a number of years  working in the Arctic Islands,  the Mackenzie Delta, the  Northwest Territories, and in  various Canadian provinces.  Lou was directly involved in  numerous drilling completions  and restoration projects including off-shore drilling supervision in the Hudson's Bay and  in Eastern Canada off-shore  sites.  Lou moved his family to  Gibsons in 1973, and for the  past seven years commuted  from the Sunshine Coast to the  oil fields, wherever his expertise was called for.  His move to British Columbia did not interrupt his interest  in oil, and he became president  and founder of Pajak Land and  Off-Shore Oil, which is a  consulting company, based in  Calgary.  He was the kind of man who  made many friends wherever he  went, and the oil industry will  miss him both as a dear friend  and a moving force who made  many contributions to the vital  energy field.  Lou leaves behind his mother, Pauline Pajak, in Fort  Saskatchewan, Alberta; his  wife Lila Joan, and two sons,  Kim Leeland and Anthony  Allison in Gibsons. He also  leaves four brothers: Walter, of  Victoria; Stanley of Calgary;  William of Delta; and Alex of  Gibsons. He leaves two sisters,  Mary Parfett and Betty Pajak,  both of Fort Saskatchewan.  Man's work can be drudgery,  in which every hour is begrudged���or it can be a mission, in which every duty is  attractive, and all work seen  under this light becomes a  definite calling.  Lou saw his work that way,  and it was because of his sense  of calling that he leaves behind  him a solid imprint of his time  on this earth, and his achievements.

Pools of darkness formed around them in the  basins, rising like a tide to  engulf all but the moonlit crests  of the dunes. The snake slowed  and coiled up on itself. The men  collapsed on the rapidly cooling sand and received a mouthful of water from a robed  figure who moved briefly  among them. Then they sank  into exhausted sleep. They were  mostly black men from the  jungles to the south, but there  were brown men from the cast  and from the islands, and even  a few white men from the  endless forests beyond the sea.  One of these, tired as he was,  only pretended to sleep. Wailing until his fellow captives  were snoring or whimpering in  dreams, he began to struggle  once again with the tough  leather thongs fastened to his  iron slau'-collar. This night his  persistence was rewarded. The  worn leather parted at last and  the thongs dropped silently  onto the soft sand. Free ofthe  others, he looked around.  The slavers' tiny fire burned  low. They had drawn their  robes about them. Like heaps  of filthy linen, they huddled  down in the cold desert night.  Whispering a curse to preserve  their sleep, he eased himself  from his place and began to  work his way along the draw,  keeping to the darkest patches  of shadow and crawling on his  belly with the smooth unhurried purpose of a snake.  Reaching a point where darkness shrouded all but the  glittering tips of the dunes, he  took a deep breath, mouthed  an inaudible prayer, and scuttled quickly up the treacherous  slope. As he climbed, his eyes  were fixed on the pool of bright  moonlight at the top. For a  moment he would be visible  there. Then he would be free.  Exultantly he crept into the  light. Crouching, he risked a  glance over his shoulder. The  camp was quiet. The robed  sleepers had not seen him. lie  whirled to drop into the deep  shadow on the far side of the  dune, but darkness reached out  and struck him with its huge  black fist. Stunned, he  sprawled on his back into the  pool of light. The crescent  moon wheeled flashing across  the dark sky and fell into his  eyes. An enormous shadow  slipped over him, swinging the  moon like a scythe. But the  moon was full. Fie could see it,  a great white eye, staring down  at him, among the reeling stars.  The tip of the long curved  sword hovered just above his  eyes. Blacker than the shadows,  the giant who straddled him  held the hilt lightly in one hand.  White eyes and teeth glowed  with soundless, malevolent  amusement out ofthe darkness  of his face. But for a loincloth,  he was inexplicably as naked as  his captive. The white man  recognized him. He was the  leader ofthe slavers. The others  called him "The Silent One" as  they hurried to obey his  imperious gestures of command. The white man heard  shouts from the direction of the  ,camp. He must have cried out  when the giant struck him. The  giant whipped up the sword  and held it high over his head,  pointing at the moon. The  noise from the camp subsided  abruptly. The sword began to  descend.  "Wait!" the white man  shrieked, "Before you strike,  hear mc!..."  Again the sword hung suspended before his eyes, weaving hypnotically, like a snake  about to strike. The motionless  black figure towered over him  like an idol. He felt he was in  the presence of a dark and  terrible god.  "I...I am a King!" he stuttered, "A son of Kings!"  The giant remained motionless.  "When I was a boy," the  white man gibbered, "My  father and my people fought  the men of Rome. We fought  bravely, but we were defeated.  My father retained his throne,  becoming an ally of Rome, and  I was sent to that great city as a  hostage, to study until 1 should  be King myself....One day,  after many years, messengers  came to the Senate with news  that my father was gravely ill  1TW3CW3I  Introducing to the Sunshine Coast  Audrey's Coffee seruice  For  Office & Restaurant Coffee  & Equipment  NOW  Available Locally  885-3716  Distributor For Goodhost Coffee  &Wt=��**afc3fctt3��t3rrrn��-��-tt-irrtr<Hrtt^^  and could not be expected to  recover. I boarded a ship to  return to my people and  assume my throne, but during  the voyage the ship was taken  by pirates. I was sold as a slave,  sold again and again, passing  from master to master, and  each time I was taken farther  south until I came to the  country of the black men....  Always I have waited until I  should be sold to one who  would take me back toward the  sea and my homeland. I  planned to escape and try to  make my way back, in spite of  the risks, to claim my throne....  If you will escort me, I promise  your reward shall be the  ransom of a King!"  His voice shook with fury  and desperation. The black  face was impassive.  "Think of it!" the white man  continued, more confidently,  "Riches!" A life of luxury! A  palace and slaves of your own!  Never again would you have to  cross these pitiless sands. I  alone am worth much more to  you than the whole wretched  coffle...better to slay them here  and leave them for the eaters of  the dead!'' he whispered persuasively, "When you and your  men have brought me to the  sea, we can find a ship to..."  The black giant threw back  his head. Like the roar of a  charging lion, his laughter  filled the desert night.  "A King!" he bellowed, "A  son of Kings! Well, my lord, I  will tell you what I know of  Kings and men..." His eyes  narrowed to white slits in the  blackness. His deep voice became soft, gently sinister.  "Once all this," he said, gesturing with his free hand to  encompass the desert which  stretched like a motionless sea  in every direction, "was only a  part of a kingdom greater even  than the empire ofthe Romans.  One king ruled all these lands,  from the Inner Sea to the Land  of the Black Men, from the  mountains at the source ofthe  River of Life, to the Sea Beyond  the Sea. That man was King  Juba.  "Like all men of the desert,  King Juba was born to war. It is  said that from his mother he  had the blood of the great  Prince of the Sea People who  crossed the mountains beyond  the Inner Sea with his elephants  and made war on Rome itself.

While King Juba  reigned, his saddle was his  throne and his sword was his  sceptre....  "But he had always been a  friend to Rome. The Romans  so esteemed his friendship that  they sent him a Roman hostage  while the King sent his son to  Rome. This man was called  Petrius. Of an ancient and  noble family, he was learned in  the arts of war and government. Though he loved to  compose songs and play his  lyre, he often crossed swords  with the King in practice and  taught him much of how the  Romans fight their battles and  govern themselves and those  they conquer....  "King Juba loved Petrius  well and preferred him above  all men. Together they rode  and hunted lions through the  length and breadth ofthe kingdom. Often in the desert did  they share their last drop of  water and their last mouthful of  bread.

Their monthly contribution of $19 brings help not only  to the Foster Child but to every  member of the family.  The monthly contribution  provides the family with free  medical and dental care, free  prescriptions, the sustained  guidance and counselling of  social workers and the benefits  of many special programs.  Several of these programs  affect whole communities providing wells for pure water and  schools for the children. All  foster children and their brothers and sisters, age permitting,  are encouraged to attend  school.

Roller skating  by Benoit LePage  Due to the fact that I'm  making excellent progress  towards establishing a Teenage  Centre in Gibsons, all proceedings have ceased, waiting  upon funding for the said  Centre.  I'm also attempting to establish Roller Skating in the  Elphinstone Secondary School  Gymnasium, but 1 can't do this  alone. I require some assistance  in applying pressure to the  School Board.  This said Skating was exercised at one time on the Sechelt  Peninsula by people of all age  groups. It created a warm  atmosphere in the late '50's and  early '70's. Roller Skating  became extinct when the old  Elphie was destroyed by fire in  July of '73.  Some of the people who were  responsible for the establishing  of the Skating facilities then  were Ray Chamberlin, Jack  Warn and Bud Laird. These  experienced organizers will be  advising our Committee on  how to have the Roller Skating  facilities operating at its full  capacity.  Therefore, if you want to see  Roller Skating make its debut  once more on the Sunshine  Coast and recreate the original  warm atmosphere the Peninsula had years ago but eventually lost, please attend the  School Board meeting on the  27th of this month at the  Elphinstone Secondary Lunch  Room. The meeting starts at  7:30 p.m. and I guarantee that  it will be very interesting.  Journey log - South!  The start of our journey was  slightly delayed and much  saddened by the passing of a  favourite Uncle in White Rock,  B.C.  Ben Maartman had been a  master carpenter and building  contractor since his arrival on  the Coast in the early 1920's.  On January 26 he tidied up his  'chips', made sure the door fit  and the latch clicked before  turning the key s over to his  'Maker'. He was in his 89th  year.  Ben had always worked from  a plan, checked over and  approved by Aunt Hilda,  before the foundation was  poured. For 67 years they had  planned their lives together.  This final journey was no  exception.  During the last few weeks,  Ben had discussed his plans  with 'Mother and the Boys'. He  was tired, his contract with life  was complete and he was ready  for the long rest.  His near 90 years had been  crammed with life. Born in a  small town in Minnesota,  U.S.A., he immigrated to  Canada at an early age.  It was in 1912 at Moose Jaw,  Saskatchewan while Mena  Maartman (my Mother) and  Hilda Chrismas were studying  music together that Mena  introduced her brother Ben to  Hilda.  Hilda, in turn, introduced  her brother Len (my Father) to  Mena. It was a double broadside by young Dan Cupid and  the big romance was born.  In a matter of days, brother  and sister married brother and  sister; Ben and Dad joined the  army and were soon shipped  out together to fight in the 'Big  One'!  Ben was seriously wounded  overseas, suffering lung damage and the loss of an eye. In  time, his injuries healed, he  filed on land in the Qu'Appelle  Valley, about 50 miles from  Moose .law, and became a  farmer.  After a few years of battling  hail and rust, drought and crop  failures, howling coyotes and  moaning winds, he packed it all  up and headed for the Coast,  Many line homes in West  Vancouver and Lower Mainland will stand for years as a  monument to the skill and craft  Pair return from  emergency conference  Mayor Boucher of Sechelt  and Alderman Metcalfe of  Gibsons returned recently from  a Federal Conference of  Mayors and Municipal  Officials at the Federal Study  Centre at Arnprior, Ontario.  This conference was sponsored by Emergency Planning  Canada and its aim was to  assist mayors and municipal  officials in the development of  plans and the implementation  of measures to meet emergency  situations. Towns and villages  from the Pacific to the Atlantic  were represented.  The conference involved  lectures, demonstrations, case  studies, planning, operational  concepts, films, group discussions and practices designed to  emphasize the significance of  municipal leadership responsibilities and involvement to  meet emergencies and disasters. The importance of  planning for action before,  during and after an emergency  was vividly demonstrated by  films taken at the time of  several disasters in Canada and  the United States. After listening to the comments of the  various delegates both Boucher  and Metcalfe agreed that we on  the Sunshine Coast are very  fortunate to have Art McPhee  as our Provincial Emergency  Program Co-ordinator. At the  close of the conference, Mayor  Boucher was asked to express  the appreciation of the delegates for the excellent presentation put on by the officials of  Emergency Planning Canada.

She was his  right hand man as they planned  and pounded, painted and  prettied, then sold and went on  to the next.  Aunt Hilda is now in her  85th year and as sharp as a tack  and as bright as a dollar. She  will probably scold me for  inaccuracies where I may have  taken a wrong turn in this  biography, but I look forward  to my next visit and the sharing  of pleasant memories.  The funeral was simple as  Ben would have wanted, the  eulogy fitting, and the gathering brought together a family  who rarely sees each other at  other times.  After promises of'a visit real  soon' and 'keep in touch', we  took our leave. Our journey  was just beginning as Uncle  Ben's was ending.  'Hon Voyage, Ben!'  Coaot News, February 26, 1960  13.

Timber Days support  In Carl Chrismas  It is now a month since my  appeal went out to prospective  chairpersons to lead the way to  a bigger and better Timber  Days Celebration than ever! So  far, I have had one call back. I  have been away for part of that  time so maybe my phone has  been ringing off the wall!  In any case, Nel Jager is our  first volunteer, so she becomes  public-spirited citizen fll.as of  the moment. Nel has a business  to run and three teenagers that  are busy 'teenaging', but she is  still willing to toss in a few  hours a week to help bring our  biggest annual affair to a  successful climax this year.  Judging from last year, I  know there arc many, many  others out there who would  gladly contribute some of their  spare hours to such a worthwhile cause, but how do we go  about getting them started?  How do we fire up that  community spirit that begins in  the spring like a 'sleepy ol'  haound doag. jest a 'dragging'  'round inthcwarmsun.lookin'  fer a cozy spot out a' the wind'!  As spring is just around the  corner, maybe we all need some  kind of a spring tonic. If  sulphur and molasses is the  stimulimt. then please take note  that my resignation takes effect  as of March 6th.  If it's honey and sweet wine,  then think of the joy and  happiness that you can bring to  a bunch of kids to whom the  opportunity to be chosen  'Queen ol the May' comes only  once in a lifetime! Or the kids  who can win a beautiful trophy  by becoming Girl or Boy  Athlete of the Year! Or the  pleasure of dunking a good  sport like Hayden Killam in the  dunk-tank with a well-aimed  shot!  And then there's the big  parade which can bring pride  and joy to people who put so  much time and energy into  making them beautiful and  innovative and real prize  winners! Look at the turnout  we had last year. Forty-five  entries, and every one in the  community was proud of that!  Yes. there are many reasons  why Sechelt limber Days  should be carried on year after  year. It is time lo set up a  permanent committee with  elected officers, register Timber  Days and Loggers' Sports  under ihe Societies Act, and  run Ihe whole thing like a  business! After all, n IS a  business thai hung', people into  our community, publicizes our  area   as   a   beauty   spot   and  Teachers  to meet  Ihe Sunshine Coast Teacher's Association will hold its  regular nionthK meeting on  Thursday, February 28. at 7:30  p.m.. in the Chatelech Jr.  Secondary School.

Annual General  Meeting. leathers are urged to  attend this important meeting.  Under new rules, certified  substitutes and unemployed  teachers are now eligible for  lull active membership at a  portion till   membership  lees. Memnerslup inquiries  may be directed to Doris  Fuller, or to the Stall Representative al any District "46  school.  fishing paradise, and in the  process, puts a lot of dollars  into our local business coffers.  So let's keep it alive! We  must get away from this annual  disinterest of 'why bother?' It  means too much to too many.  The church and charity groups  benefit, which gives them funds  to do much good in the  community; there is no better  way to promote community  spirit, and our kids look  forward to it all with such  enthusiasm, how could we  disappoint them?  Anyone who can spare a few  hours a week until May 24th  will be welcomed to join our  group at a meeting in the  Village Office on March 6th at  7:00 p.m. Be prepared to get  involved in one of the most  enjoyable experiences of your  life.

New school  for Davis Bay  Secretary-Treasurer Roy  Mills of School District ��46  told a joint meeting of School  Board and Regional Board  representatives at a meeting  held on Wednesday, February  20, that a new school will be  approved for Davis Bay on this  year's capital expenditures for  School District #46.  Mills said that the Davis Bay  school had been accorded top  priority in this year's building  program. Three sites are under  consideration for the new  building, one of them being the  present site with the addition of  two acres.  A previous meeting recommended the expenditure of  $13,000 for a covered play area  at Davis Bay if the new school  was refused. This expenditure  will not now be necessary.  The wall that needn't have been  The case of the wall that  needn't have been was discussed at the joint meeting of  the Regional Board and School  Board on February 20.  Secretary-Treasurer Roy  Mills brought to the attention  of Regional Board representatives present that the School  Board had been contacted by  the Pender Aquatic Society  about sharing the cost of a wall  built  as  a retaining wall  between the swimming pool  and bus turnaround point.  Mills pointed out that at first  he had thought a three-foot  high retaining wall was being  suggested, but in fact it turned  out to be nine-foot high and  costing over $8,000.  Mills first pointed out that it  was unacceptable for the  Pender Harbour Aquatic Society to be approaching the  School   Board;   the   correct  procedure should have been to'  approach the Regional Board;  before the wall was built. Then:  the Secretary-Treasurer, des-:  cribing himself as a 'cost-:  effectivist' pointed out that had  preliminary discussions taken;  place, he would have advoca-!  ted taking a bulldozer and at J  the cost of a few hundred;  dollars, moving the bus turn-';  around point back, making the;  expensive wall entirely unnec-J  essary.  The Squirrel and Spotty  We had a very tame and  friendly squirrel at our cottage  on Keats Island, but Spotty our  terrier was notsofriendlywithit.  The squirrel had always been  very careful to keep out of  Spotty's way but also he was a  cheeky wee thing and used to  tease the dog; he'd run down the  tree trunk until he wasjust out of  jumping range, then scold and  chatter at Spot, who would  nearly go crazy barking and  jumping at him. Then squirrel  would whisk around and scoot  up the tree again. I'm sure he was  laughing. This went on formost  ofthe summer but one day it was  not so funny. Squirrel misjudged his distance and when he  turned to run up the tree Spot  gave a huge leap and caught his  tail; well Spot hung on and  squirrel yanked himself free but  as the tail pulled through Spot's  teeth it left all the fur behind.  Poor wee squirrel, helooked just  like a rat with a long skinny tail.  When guests would see him  sitting in the tree they's say,  "Look! I have never seen a rat up  a tree before, isn't thatstrange?"  Poor wee squirrel, he wasn't so  saucy forthe rest of thesummer,  but next year he was there with  his bushy tail again.

Effink  ;j don't understand some  peoples way of thinking. John  Tjjochin, one of the naturalists  iliat came up to give a talk at a  Marsh Society meeting, is now  on a kick to save the crested  mynah. The mynah is an Asian  bird that was introduced to the  Vancouver area around the end  of the last century. Vancouver  is the only place. in North  America where there is a  colony. What I don't understand is that apparently they  are on the decline and there is  now a task force out to save  them. WHY? I guess I could be  accused of being an avian racist  and I guess I am.  Haven't we learned anything. Rabbits were introduced  to Australia, cats to the  Galapagos, starlings to North  America; the list could go on.  In defence ofthe mynah, it is  said that it is pretty, cats mainly  insects, has a varied vocabulary, and is not a pest, big deal.  One of the possible explanations for their decrease from  previous thousands to the  present hundreds, is the too  cold springs that wc have had.  Well, if that is the case, let them  die off, they are not acclimatized to this area anyway and  let's spend our energy on our  own endangered species.  Sheep kill  Alf Lajlar out at Kleindale  has lost six sheep in the past  couple of weeks. He feels that it  is a cougar, although no tracks  have been seen. Most of the  area is grassy and tracks don't  show up.  I was in the Conservation  Officer's office when he received the call on it. There are  cougar  hounds  available  in  Vancouver and Jamie will  bring them up if needed.One of  the problems is that the dogs  need a fresh spoor to work with  and that would mean that  another ewe would be on the  receiving end.  At the pound  Four dogs are eligible for  bail or adoption this week.  There's a male lab-shepherd  cross, possibly from the Roberts Creek area. A four month  old male black samoyed cross.  A male golden lab, six to eight  month old, and finally an older  male collie-spaniel cross. This  dog is all black, short Huffy and  fat.  Cheep eggs  I was accosted by two of my  friends on Sunday morning.  They had been trying to get  hold of me on Saturday night.  The way their story goes is that  they had been boiling up a  couple of eggs for a Saturday  night snack when one of them  started talking back. Apparently one of the eggs started  cheeping so they pulled it out of  the water and stared at it for a  few minutes. The egg had been  boiling long enough to be hard  boiled so they were a bit  squeamish about opening it. I  hope they invite me over for  breakfast one morning, the egg  was boiled nicely and tasted  just fine.  The only out ofthe ordinary  thing I could notice was that  there was a small air space, but  that's not too unusual in eggs.  The shell was intact, so I have  no explanation for it. 1 can  Lockstead from Victoria  Monday, February 18, 1980  The spring sitting of the  legislature begins shortly and  MLAs are busily preparing for  what is expected to be a very  hectic session.  Members on both sides ofthe  House are predicting that the  spring session will be a lengthy  one. The Socreds should have a  long list of legislation to  introduce, considering the  legislature only sat for 40 days  last year, and New Democrats  usually tell when someone is  trying to pull a fast one on mc  and they were perfectly serious  about what they were telling  me. So all I can think of is that  when the Egg Marketing Board  says that they are going to give  me cheep eggs, they are keeping  their promise.  If you want to contact me, do  so at 886-2622/886-7817 or  886-9151. No more eggs please,  unless they arc in sandwiches,  ta.  are prepared to provide a  healthy debate on issues of  importance to our caucus.  For those who may not be  familiar with the workings of  the legislature, here is a brief  description of the process. The  government has two main tasks  to accomplish while the House  is in session���approval of the  budget for the 1980-81 fiscal  year, and introduction of new  legislation.  Opposition members have  the chance to question the  various cabinet ministers when  the budget estimates lor their  ministries are presented lor  approval. We welcome this  opportune as it enables us to  ask for information about the  funding of programs within our  constituencies and to demand  explanations from the minister  responsible lor various policies  and programs.  Several New Democrats will  probably present private members   bills  on   issues  of im  portance which they feel are  not adequately covered by  present legislation. The government seldom allows private  members bills to be considered  in the legislature, but MLAs  feel the process is worthwhile  because it focuses attention on  the issue and could pressure the  government into action.  As well as attending the five  day and two evening sittings of  the legislature each week, New  Democrat MLAs arc represented on all of the standing  committees which meet regularly during the session to  consider legislation which is  before the House.  Each NDP member has a  policy area or deparlment lor  which he or she is the appointed critic and is responsible  for presenting the NDP position or response to government  proposals and policies.

Coast News, February 26,1980  On becoming a Rover  Ramblings of a Rover  bv Dee Cee  There was no doubt about it,  Madame J. Lafleur (the J. for  Josephine) was an extraordinary woman and, what is more,  the "house" she ran on Rue  Inspccteur was no ordinary  house either. Without qualifying or attempting to represent myself as an authority on  bordellos, I had never seen  anything family resembling it  nor have I ever encountered  cme like il since. Madame  Lafleur must have been one of a  \er\ prolilic family as. in the  years thai I knew her and  infrequently visited her establishment, she had more nieces  ^laying there than it was  possible to keep track of and  the strange thing was they  seemed to have come from all  corners of the globe. There  were never any more than two  ,ii one time but they included,  apart from the Canadian and  English girls who were residents on my first visit with  Arthur, girls from such diverse  places as Kingston, Jamaica;  Havana, Cuba; Brisbane, Australia and even Japan. We all  called her Josic but everything  about her started with a J as she  was not only jovial, jocose and  jolly but she fairly bubbled over  with joy and never once in our  long acquaintance did I see a  scowl on her face or see her  displeased about anything or  anybody. She was also a soft  touch and could always be  approached for a loan and the  big pot of stew simmering on  the stove was open to all  comers, no matter if they were  paying guests or transients  drifting in from God knows  where.  I am not sure just how long I  stayed there, maybe a week  maybe ten days, but one thing  was certain and that was that  my cash was dwindling away  with frightening rapidity.  When I changed the pounds  sterling my Father had given  me into dollars it seemed like a  small fortune but it didn't last  long the way I was going and,  unlike Arthur, 1 was not  receiving a remittance cheque  each month, so there was  nothing coming in and everything going out. Also I did  nothing sensible to tryandstop  Ihe outflow. I had developed a  mad crush on Yvonne and from  lime to time bought her small  gifts to prove my ardour for her  was not diminishing and, on  lop of that, although I had  brought a considerable wardrobe over with me from England, 1 just couldn't seem to  resist buying more clothes to  enhance, as I thought, my  appearance. I already had an  overcoat and a raincoat in my  luggage but I went ahead and  bought a heavy tweed overcoat  lined with imitation fur and a  pair of hall-high boots lined  with sheepskin, what for I  really don't know as it was the  month of June and it was quite  hot in Montreal. Perhaps I was  expecting an early onset of  winter or it could have been 1  had visions of the frozen north  from the works of Jack London  and Robert Service that I had  devoured so avidly back in the  Old Country.  I had also developed a real  admiration lor the draught  beet that ihey served in the  Montreal taverns at the time.  Oik- had the choice of light or  dark ale II preferred the latter)  and quailed il by the gallon. In  lllose days it was five cents for a  class or ten cents lor a "schooner", a large glass with a handle  on it vcrj similar to the pints in  llntian.  Arthur only stayed lor a  couple of days but long enough  lor him to discover that we  were only two doors away from  one ol the largest brothels  operating in the city. We were  at 917 and down the street at  911 there was a constant traffic  day and night; cars, taxis and  pedestrians'arriving and leaving���so we had to go and  investigate that. I don't know  who operated this notorious  house   of  ill-lame  but  there  were 20 to 30 girls on hand at all  times for the customers' selection. I didn't feel up to it at the  time due to Yvonne's ministrations but the irrepressible  Arthur soon picked out a girl  and was up those stairs like he  hadn't seen a woman in the last  five years!  The next day, still as bouncy  and confident as ever, he was  bidding Madame Lafleur, the  girls and myself good-bye but  first, drawing me aside, he-  explained that his remittance  cheque was unaccountably  delayed and, seeing he was a  little short, could I loan him  $50 to tide him over? Naturally  I obliged but il is strange I  never asked him, nor did he  ever tell mc, where his uncle's  ranch was situated or what his  mailing address was. At the  time I trusted him implicitly  and it never occurred to me that  perhaps the ranch never existed  and that the stories of his  remittance and his father the  Earl were just figments of his  lively imagination. 1 ran into  him many years later, quite by  chance, on a construction job  up in Northern Ontario but  whether his money had been  cut off or whether the horny old  Earl had by this time so many  offspring there wasn't enough  to go around, I never found  out. However, not only did he  not have the $50 he owed me,  he didn't even have 50 cents to  his name but he did have, so he  told me that night after supper,  the damnedest dose of V.D.  and he left early next morning  to go back to Toronto to start  treatment. That was the last I  ever saw of him.  I still had my ticket to  Toronto so about a week later I  decided it was time I got going  and started looking for a job. I  too bade farewell to Josie and  Yvonne and a new "niece" who  had arrived to replace the  redhead. When I arrived at  Bonaventure Station and retrieved the luggage I had  brought over with me from  England and added it to what I  had recently acquired, I was  amazed at the number and  variety of articles I had accumulated. I was a far cry from  the late Duke of Windsor and  his Duchess whom I have read  never travelled with less than  300 pieces of baggage, plus  retainers and an assortment of  poodles, but I had too damn  much and I made a mental note  to get rid of a good part of it as  soon as I reached Toronto. By  this time I was down to $7 cash  so I had no time to lose.  I had sampled the flcshpots,  sampled the females and the  excellent Canadian beer. Now  it was time I sampled what  work was in this new land. I  thought I was well prepared for  anything that might happen.  but 1 had little inkling of the  rude awakening I was in for!  ���mi ���-  mmmmmm\mmmT  1  ���  -d**m    pi 1      ^H  k     ;  J^l      1?  ^^  UmJ     /' Ik!        :-jl^   ��B                               B    '.'���.'''�����')���.  :��*  E^-   '        jdiawK^r.^aaftH  Guess Where I  The usual prize of $5.00 will be awarded to the person  whose name is drawn from the barrel correctly  locating the above.

Police News of the week  Sometime between 1:00 a.m.  and 7:00 a.m. on February 16,  the Village Cafe in Sechelt was  broken into. Eleven bottles of  liquor, four cases of beer, 10  cartons of cigarettes and a $40  float were taken. Entry was  gained through the area under  renovation. On the same day  the front window of the Sechelt  Liquor Store was smashed with  a piece of brick. Two Texas  Mickeys were stolen, one of  Canadian Club and the other  Beefeater's Gin.  On  the   18th  a  ring was  reported missing from a residence in West Sechelt. The ring  is gold with a light yellow  centre stone. No signs of forced  entry were seen. A rock was  thrown through the window at  the Cameo Industries A-frame  in Porpoise Bay, also on the  18th.  Eight hundred dollars worth  of prawn traps were reported  missing on the 19th. The .theft  occurred in Salmon Inlet  sometime between December  and the time it was reported.  Police feel that a 1972 Mercury  reported burning at the Peninsula Hotel on the 19th was set  on fire deliberately.  Sometime between the 12th  and the 18th of February,  $350 worth of building equipment was stolen from a building site on Crucil Road in  Gibsons.  A Pioneer combination tape  deck and radio was stolen from  an unlocked vehicle parked  outside the Sechelt Auto Clinic  on the 20th.  * **************** ************** *  *  *  *  *  *  *  *  *  *  *  *  *  *  *  *  i  *  *  *  *  *  OVERSTOCKED!

VON 1V0  The Lower Sunshine Coast���Beachcomber Country  A Juhn Humsidi photograph.  Returning for their ninth year, the Canadian Broadcasting Company's  popular BEACHCOMBERS will commence filming on March 2 for their first  production Down In The Dumps. In the usual season lasting from early March  until early September, twenty programmes are filmed. The C.B.C.'s studio  location set is MOLLY'S REACH at the head of the wharf in Lower Gibsons'  Village, the former Gibsons Landing. Outside locations have ranged from  nearby islands.HorseshoeBay (the car-ferry terminal to the Sunshine Coast  about 13 miles from downtown Vancouver), to as far away as Victoria on  Vancouver Island. Most programmes, however, are filmed on the lower  Sunshine Coast (Port Mellon to Earls Cove).  Canadian Forest Products' Howe Sound pulp plant is located in Port Mellon.  The BEACHCOMBERS has been filmed there and at numerous other locations  on the Sunshine Coast (chosen for its scenic splendours) as far up the Coast as  Ruby Lake, which is north, northwest of Madeira Park and the turn-off for  Garden Bay.  The visitor to the Sunshine Coast may well be in Lower Gibsons when filming  is taking place at MOLLY'S REACH.  Several of the people associated with the production live on the Sunshine  Coast. The Production Secretary, PatvBraithewaite, has lived here since 1964  and is one of a number of local people who have been employed during the  production. Hundreds of local people have been casually hired as extras, and  the Sechelt Indian Band has been used in large numbers for some of Ihe  productions. Bruno Gerussi lives here when he's not out on assignments other  than the BEACHCOMBERS, and so does Executive Producer Hugh Beard.  Mark and Susan Strange, Ihe creators of the series, have settled here on the  Sunshine Coast also. So has Pat John and first and second Assistant Directors  Don Granberry and John Harley, and Lara Fox in charge of Continuity among  others. There are still others, artist Veronica Plewman (or example, who are  former associates of the series, and who continue to live here, for truly the  Sunshine Coast can be said to be blessed.  The C.B.C.'s most successful television series is heard in several languages  and among the countries in which it is seen are: Malaysia, Australia, New  Zealand, Singapore, Jamaica, the Bahamas, Kuwait, Austria and Great Britian.  The beauty of the Sunshine Coast is known far and wide, and those fortunate  enough to live here, even though they may not always see this as fortunate, are  living in a region of surpassing scenic splendour.  At Horseshoe Bay, one boards a B.C. Ferries Corporation vessel for the  journey of approximately 45 minutes to the lower Sunshine Coast's Langdale  ferry terminal. Leaving Horseshoe Bay, the ferry passes Lions Bay and the  highway to Squamish, Anvil Island on the starboard bow, and Bowen Island on  the port side. En route, the ferry sails between Gambier Island to the starboard  side and Keats Island to port.  At Langdale, foot passengers disembark and vehicular traffic is unloaded.  Turning left from the terminal on Highway 101 (the road to the right goes to Port  Mellon), and taking the lower road rather than the by-pass to the right, one  drives past Hopkins Landing, Soames Point and Granthams Landing for a  distance of approximately 2 kilometres to arrive in Lower Gibsons village and  MOLLY'S REACH. From there, Highway 101 proceeds for approximately 50  kilometres to the other ferry terminal at Earls Cove for Powell River and the  upper Sunshine Coast. Earls Cove is close to Egmont, the location for another  C.B.C. venture (this one a co-production with West German television), called  RITTER'S COVE. But that is another story.  /    /   VANCOUVER ISLAND Sunshine Coast Realtor, February 26, 1980  Box 1490,  Sechelt, B.C.
