Under correspondence, a  letter of resignation from past  President Emma Campbell was  tead stating that the resignation was over certain irregularities. Mrs. Campbell told the  Coast News that she could not  approve the irregularities  which had resulted in nominations lor Directors of people  who were not members in good  standing ol the Chamber.  Among these, she mentioned  Bill Formatr, Stan Anderson  and Dick Proctor who resigned  from the Chamber last year  over a co-operative advertising  venture with the Gibsons  Chamhet ol Commerce advocating local shopping. Stan  Anderson, she said, had not  been a member ofthe Chamber  since 1977. and she did not  know Hill Format! at all.

Area C Regional Board  Director Charles Lee was the  guest speaker for the evening  and he delivered a dissertation  " oTTtrierSScfitly received report,  the: Economic Development  Sludy for the area. Director  Lee made reference to the  Canadian Forest Products  operation at Port Mellon as  providing about one third of  the tax base for the area and  said, "we have to do something  to increase our tax base." The  main thrust of his speech was to  stress what he felt to be the  desirability of establishing a  Regional Trade Commission.  Mr. I.cc estimated that the total  cost of such a Commission  would be in the. order of  $60,000. He was highly critical  ol the Regional Board which,  he said, had shelved the $24,000  128-page sludy and the idea of  u Commission. He was contemptuous of the total of  $80,000 spent to extend the  Fitness Programme and for  what he termed, "the sewage  sniffers" and the "garbage  guards".

'*  Mtfss  >���    >  ���- *>*%  A group of local doctors has proposed an alternative to the  sewage plant site for the Joint Use Facility which until recently  had been desperately looking for a home in the Village of Sechelt,  Represented by Dr. Eric Paetkau of St. Mary's Hospital and  architect Kevin Ryan at the January 31 meeting of the Regional  Board, the group unveiled plans for a multi-purpose development  in the heart of the Village. The site proposed is on the north side of  Wharf Road across from the present Regional Board building  stretching east from the Bank of Montreal building.  "The project can get underway ;ompetitive."  in one month's time," said Dr.       a spokesman for the group  Paetkau. "All ofthe owners are   proposing the project told the  Regional Board in the non-  appointment of a Commission  by Alderman Henry Hall  (Sechelt) who pointed out  Provincial jurisdiction over  such appointments which  would not permit such until the  study was finalized. The Adjustment Committee, he said,  had taken too fong to Pic the '  report.  Mr. Lee was applauded for  his presentation.  In other Chamber business,  the grant for a scholarship to an  Elphinstone student was increased from $50 to $150 on a  motion by Stan Anderson. In  reference to a visit to the area of  Postmaster General, the Honourable John Fraser, it was  noted that this would be a good  opportunity to express Chamber's support for the letter from  Canadian Postmasters opposing the closure on Saturdays of  Village Post Offices. The  Postmaster General will be in  Sechelt. Whittakcr House,  February 14 at 11:00 a.m., to  meet with the press.

The project, described as  Sechelt Civic Centre, is seen as  a private urban renewal project  for a part of the Village which  has been hurt by recent developments north and west in  the Village.  "My involvement," said Dr.  Paetkau, "is to let you know  that this is a good project and  to get it started. Then I'll go  back to doctoring."  Director Harry Almond  pointed out that expense would  have to be seen as a prime  consideration in any consideration of the project. "The cost  will be fair," said Dr. Paetkau.  "This is a private enterprise  project.  It will  have to be  Teen Centres  proposed  A proposal presented to the  Regional Board at their January 31 meeting that the Board  support Youth Programming  on the Sunshine Coast seemed  to run into a rather chilly  reception.  April Struthers, Chairperson  q( theJnter-Agency Teen Task  Forcemadethepresentatirin.lt  would involve a task force of  four community workers, one  in each of Gibsons, Pender  Harbour, and Sechelt, and a  fourth divided between Roberts Creek and Wilson Creek,  and a co-ordinator.  Struthers told the regional  directors that the program,  with a cost of $94,450 was  supported by the Inter-Agency  Committee as a preventive  service. "This kind of thing has  really been successful in Wilson  Creek," Struthers told the  Coast News last week. "Vandalism in the area has gone  down dramatically since the  Wilson Creek Community  Association initiated its Teen  Drop-In service."  Struthers said that the concept was a good one for smaller  communities and said that it  had been presented to the B.C.  Recreation Commission in  May to excellent response.  "People involved in this  proposal have all worked with  young people in the past," said  Struthers.  Director Charles Lee, who is  Finance Committee Chairman  for the Regional Board, said  that while he was sympathetic  there were many poor people  on the Sunshine Coast, 'poor  with a capital lv and that  he couldn't in all conscience  support such a proposal.  The Regional Board accepted the proposal for consideration.  Coast News that this would be  a stra a title condominium  development in which space  could either be leased or  bought. "It is intended for  government, office, commercial and apartment utilization."  said the spokesman. He added  that conference rooms within  the project would be in the  form of an amphitheatre which  could be utilized for conferences, seminars or small conventions.  "Wc can afford to do something that the community can  be proud of," he said.

The object of the  exercise was to see if, within strict size limits, the students could bring Ihe egg out  unscathed.  Trade commissioner urged  Director Charles Lee urged  the representatives of Gibsons  and Sechelt to speedy approval  of the appointment of a  Regional Trade Commissioner  for the Sunshine Coast at the  January 31 meeting of the  Regional Board. His motion  that the Regional Hoard deal  with the matter at their next  meeting, however, went down  to defeat as both Alderman  Stelck of Sechelt and Mayor  Lorraine Goddard of Gibsons  indicated that their respective  councils would need more time  to study the proposal.  The concept of a Regional  Trade Commissioner was introduced locally by John  Colville of the Trade and  Industry Division of the Pro  vincial Ministry of Economic  Development.

Apparently Sechelt parents  are not the only ones who feel  that their children should be  going to school nearer home. A  spokesman for a group of  Roberts Creek parents whose  children attend Chatelech told  the Coast News last week that  many Roberts Creek parents  would prefer to have their  children attend Elphinstone  Secondary School in Gibsons.  A meeting to explore the  issue is scheduled to be held in  the Roberts Creek School on  Monday. Fcbruarv II, at 7:30  Recently officials Irom the  Ministry of Education turned  down Elphinstone's application for four new classrooms  and under the circumstances it  seems unlikely that any changes in the present situation will  take place in 1980.  New drama  group formed  Seventy-five people drawn from Robei ts Creek to Egmont were  in enthusiastic attendance of the inaugural meeting, held on  Saturday night at Lord Jim's Lodge, of a new Sunshine Coast  adult drama society.  The group intends to bring quality drama to the north half of  the Sunshine Coast, to form a self-supporting, non-profit society,  and to bring a quality theatrical facility to the area.  Under the presidency of Duncan Sim. an executive was elected  on Saturday night to facilitate the achievement ol these and other  aims. Doreen Lee was elected Secretary; .loan Rae. Treasurer;  Gordon Wilson, Special Events Director; Valeric Tomkics,  Information Director; Richard Tomkics. Production Manager.  The tentative name for the group was established as the Pender  Harbour Players but the widespread support caused some second  thoughts on the name and it was agreed that a contest would be  held to come up with a more widely representative name.  Membership in the new group will cost $15 for a single  membership; $25 for a joint membership; $40 lor a family  membership; and $50 for a life membership. Seniors and young  people will pay $5 for their memberships.  The first production of the soon-to-be formed society will take  place in the fall. "Wc are intending a quality production and  everybody was delighted with the infectious enthusiasm at the first  meeting." a spokesman told the Coast News.

Of vandalism and the young  We would draw the attention of all  parents of teenagers and all those who have  been concerned with teenage vandalism to  the article which came across the editorial  desk this week from a Chamber of  Commerce group in Fort Nelson, B.C. The  article appears elsewhere in this paper and  will speak well enough for itself.  Wc find people talking about vandalism  as though it was akin to Original Sin. In  fact, of course, vandalism is a symptom of  discontent which can be magically rectified  if the causes of the discontent are dealt  with.  It is absolutely true that the young on the  Sunshine Coast have long been the least  catered to segment of our population and  the evidence of the neglect is weekly  reported in the police news in the form of  broken windows, knocked over stop signs,  and burglarized cabins from which little is  taken.  As the article from Fort Nelson pointed  out, such anti-social behaviour was being  experienced in Fort Nelson until the local  Chamber of Commerce, in defence of their  own commercial premises, went to work at  the root of the problem and within one  year eradicated it.  What makes all this more meaningful is  the proposal for Teen Centres up and  down the Sunshine Coast, from Pender to  Gibsons, which  was  presented  to the  Regional Board last Thursday and which  addresses itself to the problem ofthe young  for whom no adequate provision is made in  the social climate of a community.  With predictable ponderous negativity,  Director Charles Lee took it upon himself  to voice opposition to the idea without  giving it a second thought. Lee cited the  poverty of the Sunshine Coast communities and yet, if we may utilize one of Lee's  own gimmicks and reduce the $90,000 or  so that the Teen Centre project would  require to a per capita basis, that would  mean a cost of between seven and eight  dollars per person.  Are we really so poor here on the  Sunshine Coast that we cannot afford  seven or eight dollars each per year for our  neglected young people?  We urge the people of the Sunshine  Coast to give serious thought to this  question. Read the article from the Fort  Nelson Chamber of Commerce and judge  for yourself. If your teenagers are  complaining about having nothing to do or  if your property has suffered from  vandalism we think you would be well  advised to adopt a positive attitude to the  Teen centre proposal supported by the  Sunshine Coast Inter-Agency Committee  and make sure your director on the  Regional Board hears your views. This is  too important a matter to be left to the  politicians.  Nuclear power dichotomy  In a press release from the provincial  government we are assured by our premier  that there is no likelihood of nuclear power  being needed in this province. We quote: "I  am pleased with the news (of the discovery  of new energy sources), because it indicates  the abundance of energy sources available  to the province, sources that will ensure  that for as long as we can foresee there will  be no necessity in the province to move  toward nuclear generation of power."  Compare this, if you will, with an  interview with Hydro chief Bob Bonner  which appears in the most recent issue of  B.C. Business Magazine: "My guesstimate  is that we might have to start looking at  nuclear power in the late 1980's and the  earliest prospect that I can see for having a  nuclear power plant in place would be in  the late 1990's. This pace of events assumes  that environmental protection requirements do not rule out, or make prohibi  tively expensive, the development of the  Hat Creek coal deposits, and assumes as  well that political decisions will not  foreclose access to the undeveloped river  resources of our remaining hydro potential."  The premier sees no nuclear energy in  the foreseeable future. Bonner has a  different vision. Note that if there are  problems with Hat Creek or the utilization  of undeveloped rivers Bonner might be  considering nuclear energy before the late  1980's.  The discrepancy between the government's pronouncements and that of the  Hydro chief is all too distinct. It may be  that nuclear energy will in fact prove to be  absolutely necessary. It is our hope that all  safeguards will be taken in that event for  the well-being of the people of this  province and that the decision, if it comes,  will be democratically made.  Thank you  Sometimes it seems that the people who  work for the B.C. Ferry Corporation are  singled out for less than generous  treatment by those of us who use the  ferries.

The tug Commodore  poses for her picture near her patron mill, for which she had recently  been built. The tug was 165 feet in length, and was driven by a300-horse  power steam engine. Captain William Higgs encountered the  Commodore throughout much of her career. She turned a wheel 13 feet  6 inches in diameter, says Captain Bill; when either her or her sister tug,  the Hero, cracked the valve, all the chains on a tow of logs groaned. She  may well have towed the 4-masted bark seen behind her into the  harbour. The late Captain Sam Dawe, who spent some years on the  vessel as mate, said in his later life that this was his favourite tug. In 195B,  the Commodore struck Fraser Rock in Welcome Pass and sank. Tom  Sheldon in 1977 retrieved the anchor from 96 feet of water and set it in  cement at his Abbs Road home. There it stands as a permanent  memento of one of the Coast's great old tow boats.

Peterson  SLINGS   AND   ARROWS   NOT   AVAILABLE  ~'Ax'mw^+  Musings  John Burnside  Olympic boycott  seen hypocrisy  Actually the picture at the  top of this column is most  misleading. I mean there I sit  musing at the top of Knob Hill  in a world of peace and  tranquility apparently in quiet  reflection thinking those  thoughts which find their way  onto this page of your weekly  Coast News. The reality is  nothing like that.  Take this week for example. 1  double as personnel manager,  save the mark, at Ye Oldc  Coast News and this week we  had a change in personnel.  Now so closely do we all work  together to get the paper out  that any change is an unsettling  affair. Quite apart from personal feelings, there is so much  work to be done that the  prospect of getting Ihe job done  with even one beginner turns  mc quite gray.  Fortunately, now in our  fourth year, we are building a  backlog of people who have  worked with us in the past and  in emergencies throw themselves heroically into the  breach until the new people  have become acclimatized.  Thursday of this week was  spent in organizing just such an  emergency operation with, in  this case the quite splendid Pat  Tripp undertaking the production and training duties and not  for the first time.  On Friday. I tried to catch up  with the opening and evaluation of the mountains of mail  which it is my weekly lot to deal  with. Friday afternoon Manuane thought the truck was  breaking down. It wsn't but il  took a visit to the co-operative  folks at Cupping's South Coast  Ford to assure us that all was  well.  At this point with the seeds  of a do/en stories circulating  forlornly and neglected in what  passes for my mind. I was  falling seriously behind sched-  le. Not to worry, I tell myself,  we'll get cracking on them  Saturday and wrestle the  workload back on schedule.  Saturday morning the typesetting machine, a neurotic  computerized genius, begins  spitting out expletives marked  with asterisks and stars and  squiggles instead of the faultless advertising copy that our  customers have a righ( to  expect for their advertising  dollar.  Now the curse of the newspaperman's week becomes  again manifest. It is our fate to  have our busiest time just when  everyone else is out recreating.  A day is spent on the telephone  to Vancouver before we can  locate a service man. It is  Saturday evening before we can  get him up to the Sunshine  Coast. Meanwhile the workload piles up. We begin to curse  -our indefatigable sales staff as  ��� they continue to zip around  collecting advertising.  "It's going to be a big paper,"  they assure us cheerfully.  I clutch my head and moan.  Gerry the typesetter makes  hysterical little noises as she  watches the work pile up with  her not able to do much about  it.  He comes. It is Saturday  evening. The repair work is  more difficult than was anticipated. He wrestles with the  machine until after midnight  Saturday.  Sunday morning I arrive for  work. The bowels of our  expensive new typesetting  computer are strewn around  the office and Joan, our spare  typesetter, and Gerry have  wrestled our discarded Compu-  graphic machine out of the  back shop and are going to  work with that.  The repair man comes back  after a night at the Ritz Motel  and doggedly addresses himself  to the disembowelled electronic  marvel.  At this point, including the  repair man, there are almost a  dozen people feverishly trying  to come to grips with the  business of putting our little  weekly together with an obsolete machine and a mountainous back-up of work to be  done.  The editor at this point is in a  state of severe emotional  disrepair. Haifa do/en articles  Hit through his spinning mind,  unrcscarched, semi-digested,  and above all not on paper.  In the midst of the chaos he  takes refuge in work. The  conditions arc as different from  the contemplative and leisured  figure pictured at the top of this  column as it is possible to get.  He gazes in the midst of chaos  at the blank sheet of paper  before him. There are two  possibilities: an open acknowledgement of the hysterical  insanity he feels or the random  application of fingers to typewriter keys in the hope that the  familiar activity will tide him  over.  No sooner has he opted for  activity over insanity than the  repairman approaches Gerry  and shows her some typeset  copy. The electrifying news  races around the office. "The  machine is fixed!" There is a  burst of applause for the  repairman and within minutes,  like the colours in a kaleidoscope, the pieces fall into place  and order again appears to be a  possibility. Two typesetters are  vigorously addressing themselves to the workload at both  typesetting machines, the production staff arc scurrying  around looking cheerful and  determined and all the typewriters in the front office are  sounding more optimistic.  Suddenly, the editorial therapy is manifesting itself in the  form of words written and  another column is almost ready  lor the typesetters. With that  behind us, it's time to take up  the telephone and the pen and  try to collect some of the  haphazard material that has  been crying lor attention since  the first crisis on Thursday  morning. With some luck and  with some help from my  friends, all may yet be well. As  for Knob Hill. well, perhaps  next week will be different.  ���������������������������������������������������������������������������Ik;*****  t    We must be slow  *  *  *  *  +  *  For you and I are bathed in silence:  Here where the country alt about  Is quiet; asleep in the softness  Of this evening star, sparkling  On the wrist of night.

His misconceived opportunism in scampering behind  President Carter's policy on  Afghanistan supercedes even  his idiocy in trying to gain the  Jewish vote for Ron Atkey by  promising to move the Canadian embassy from Tel Aviv to  Jerusalem.  In the matter of practical  diplomacy, it is fatuous and  naive to imagine that the  Soviet Union will change the  course of its policies in order  to keep the United States or  Canada in the Olympics.  In the matter of principle,  it is dishonest to protest the  Soviet Union's invasion of Afghanistan after having gone  along with President Carter's  creation earlier this year of his  Unilateral Force for the express purpose of acting unilaterally and militarily 'anywhere in the world where U-  nited States interests are in  jeopardy'.  When U.S. Defence Secretary Harold Brown announced that militant U.S. policy in  Saudi Arabia last February,  not one country of the Western Alliance objected to it and  neither did our Press. Indeed,  our Press barely mentioned it,  and had it not been for this  newspaper, local citizens  might never have heard of it.  That Unilateral Force of the  U.S. created a manifest presence in the Persian Gulf only  months ago. The water and air  occupied by U.S. forces a-  round the Middle East and  Russia during 1979 and this  month are no different in real  military terms from the land  occupied by the Russian forces  in Afghanistan.  It's a law of arms, that one  unilateral force begets a-  nother. Doesn't our Press, at  least, know that? What do  they gain by forgetting it?  We discriminate between  them, or rather Clark and his  ilk do, only on the grounds  that the U.S. forces in that  area are on 'our side', but  such discrimination is ridiculous.  Still on the matter of principle, did Canada pull its team  out of the Mexican Olympics  in 1968 after the Mexican police and army slaughtered  over 500 students and others  protesting the extravagant  waste of national treasure on  elitist sport while millions of  Mexicans starve under the  sky?  What did the high principled lad from High River  have to say about that at the  time or since?  Was he for or against Canadians playing ball and racing  with American sportsters who  were applauding their compatriot's napalming of innocent people in Vietnam?  As James Cameron of the  Manchester Guardian well  puts it, the Afghan situation is  a conflict of hypocrisies and  Canada would be wll out of it  ...except of course that conflicts of hypocrisy are the  natural grounds on which our  policticans always choose to  show our national colours.  There are better reasons  than the Soviet invasion of  Afghanistan for pulling out of  the Olympics, indeed for  ending the Olympics altogether. It is now an exercise  in fatuity for the great mass of  people in this world, East and  West alike, a gross, costly and  inane ego-massage for the  athletes, the officials, the profiteers and the pathetic crowds  that attend them to 'identify'  with the crude nationalisms  displayed there.  Clark's Me-Tooism in yapping along with Carter in his  threat to Russians is a perfect  example in perfect scale of the  inanity the Olympic 'spirit'  gives birth to in men and women in high places.  Which is not to exclude the  athletes themselves, who  demonstrate the same a-politi-  cal opportunism themselves  when they protest against  being pulled out of the Olympics.  Proof of that was the blind  and deaf and mute 'neutrality'  our great Canadian athletes  demonstrated in the Mexico  massacre of 1968. Our sports  writers barely mentioned the  situation outside the stadium,  which, incidentally, is only  yards from the scene of the  slaughter.  The most fatuous aspect of  the Clark posture is that, while  he pretends to be concerned  about principles in Afghanistan and perhaps even the  world, he does not see war and  the potential destruction ofthe  planet as an issue in this general election.  We must accept, he implies,  an alliance with one of the  madmen who are running us  up to the holocaust.

Hydro transmission  line across the Sunshine Coast-  Sechelt Peninsula - Texada  Island - Vancouver Island, this  humble scribe began a little bit  of browsing through the weather records he kept twice daily  for the Gibsons area between  the years 1952 and 1970.  One little excerpt from those  records deserves note. I like to  call it a Christmas gift; it reads,  "December 15, 1954, B.C.  Power Commission completed  installation of circuit to provide electricity to this property  today (Orange Road-historic to  Les which perhaps I'll tell  sometime). Power turned on at  2 p.m. and operating normally.  I thanked head linemen Gordon Reeves and Jack Billings-  ley".  excerpt in the form of a letter to  the Controller, Meteorological  Division, Toronto, who is the  official receiver of all clima-  tological data, and reads thus;  "Re: Construction of right-of-  way for B.C.

February 5, 1980  A License To Trespass  Part II  The alders and other view-  obstructing vegetation topple  belore us as we work our way  uphill and down through the  fantastic tangle. Some of the  shots we are obliged to take  involve balancing on cliff edges  and other chancy spots. In  several instances, we have to tie  ourselves with ropes. I am not  exactly a fan of high, dangerous  places but 1 keep reminding  myself that this is indeed, a  considerably better deal than  tlic woods. My friend Larry,  who runs Ihe transit, is in  charge ol our particular team  ami he mis a steady but  reasonable pace. The third  member of this, my inaugral  surveying crew, ts a large.  blonde Ukranian called Mike.  He seems easy going and  friendly enough at first. Hut as  the weeks go by, Mike becomes  increasingly moody and morose. He is apparently having a  difficult love affair with a girl in  Vancouver.  At this point, we are working a particularly hairy series of  rock bluffs about a mile cast of  McNab Creek. Our method of  gelling to work involves driv-  Pages from a Life-Log  Peter Trower  ing to the fort Mellon pulp-  mill from Gibsons each morning and proceeding by boat  from there. Wc leave the boat  at the mill during the week but  Mike generally takes it home  on weekends for his own use.  One Monday, Larry and myself  drive to Port Mellon as usual.  There is no sign of either Mike  or Ihe boat. After waiting  around for an hour, we head  back to (Jibsons. The boat is  tied up at Ihe dock but Mike is  nowhere lo be seen. "Maybe he  didn't make it back from  town," muses Larry but wc  decide to check his apartment  anyhow. Mike is there but still  in bed and in the grip of a  depression that verges on the  catatonic. Larry talks to him  mostly since he knows him  much belter than I do. Evi-  dcntly, his girlfriend has called  it quits and the rejection has  driven him right off the deep  end. Apparently, Mike has a  history of mental disorder and  fears his own potential for  violence. He is subsequently  committed to Riverview Hos-  CROSSLEY  _ ^mStaiy  Lonsdale  "GOLD SPLENDOUR"  First Quality Carpeting  1 Roll Only     SalePr|ce  Reg. ��31.�� sq. yd. $18.95 Sq. yd.

"Christ!" says Larry later,  "he told me there were several  times on the job when he had  the urge to attack us with a  machete for no reason at all!"  "Wow!" I say and have  visions of decapitated bodies  tumbling from cliffs. "I thought  you siid this job was safer than  the logging camps!" Fortunately, for our peace of mind,  Mike's successor is a good-  humoured character called.  Dennis Fitch who exhibits no  unstable tendencies.  Wc continue to cut line and  stake pole locations, working  our way up-Sound towards  Woodfibre. The country gets  no easier as we progress. There  is another crew slashing its way  from the opposite end. Apparently, the toughest stretch on  the line is a precipitous wall of  high bluffs between Woodfibre  and Squamish. I am thankful  that this onerous and giddy  undertaking will fall to our  counterparts. One afternoon at  quitting time, Larry and Dennis are in a playful mood. As we  start down to the beach, they  spot an enormous boulder,  precariously balanced and  begin rocking it back and forth.  Suddenly it breaks free and  takes off, bounding and crashing down the steep slope.  Caroming spectacularly from a  final ledge, it arcs out over the  water and strikes like a king  sized depth charge, throwing  up an explosion of spray. We  are standing there laughing like  a bunch of kids when a small  boat appears from under the  shadow of the cliff. We have  come within an inch of clobbering some hapless and quite  unsuspecting sports fisherman.  He scuttles away at full throttle, undoubtedly terrified, like  Ulysses fleeing the hurled rocks  of the angry and blinded  Cylops. Thereafter, we abstain  from such potentially lethal hi-  jinks.  As we approach Woodfibre,  we hit a stark stretch of fire-  denuded coastline that sparks  my imagination.  In the skelton country  we climb fire-rotted rocks  brightening blackened logs  flame-raped leafless saplings  with coloured ribbon.  Here  where inferno snarled  and passed  we move through  leprous distances  in pale rain  writing haikus  of blowing pigment  on the grimy pages  of the land.  Beyond the wind  the white women of January  are knitting a shroud  for this devastated place.  In the meantime we move  as through a long graveyard  scattering coloured ribbon  like sudden flowers.

Born in Lodz, Poland, Pawel  Checinski received his diploma with honors from the  Music Academy in Warsaw in  1969. He also graduated from  the Juillard School, with the  Master's degree in 1973; and  the Doctor of Musical Arts  degree, 1976.

In 1972 he won  the Concert Artists' Guild Annual Auditions in New York,  and the concerto Competition  at Temple University, Pennsylvania. In 1973 dhe was a  prizewinner at the Second International Piano Competition  of Guanabara in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, where he also  received the Rachmaninoff  Prize for the best performance  of the Rhapsody on a Theme  by Paganini. In 1975 he was  awarded a Ravel Centennial  Medal at the First Robert Cas-  adesus International Piano  Competition in Cleveland.  Recently he was a Prizewinner in the International  Piano Competition in Sydney.  Pawel Checinski has given  conerts in Poland, Czechoslovakia, Hungary, Germany,  England, Brazil, Canada, the  Soviet Union, and throughout  the United States of America  and Australia.  On Sunday, February 10 at  2:00 p.m. at Elphinstone  School, Mr. Checinski will  begin the second half of the  Countryside Concert series  with Beethoven's Les Adleux  Sonata, 9 Scriabin Etudes, the  Chopin B minor Sonata, and  three Rachmaninoff Preludes.  This will undoubtedly be a  concert not to miss!  In addition to Sunday's  concert, Mr. Checinski will  give a Master Class on Saturday, February 9, 1:00-4:00  at Elphinstone, in the lunch  room.

As a painter, Trudy Small's  demands are few. She has no  heavy messages and takes no  satirical swipes. You arc there  to relax and enjoy her straightforward love affair with the sea.  There is something to be said  for lovely, restful charm. Trudy  does not take herself too  seriously. She simply shares her  goodwill and light hearted,  decorative pallette with all.  No. 11, Sea Flowers in russet  hues belongs to her undersea  flower theme. Standing tall and  gorgeous at the door this  understated painting lures you  into the charming, uncomplicated world of Trudy Small. In  many different kelp compositions her varied colours give  you a feeling of different depths  and angles of sun or moonlight  through the water. Her kelp  can be peaceful as in Pacific  Grasses or pulled by unyielding tidal forces as in Undertow.  Her colours are as flickering as  the many moods of the Pacific  ocean and her involvement  with life therein. No. 4 contains  sepia toned corals forming on  an underwater log or are they  prickly sea urchins? In many of  the works you might consider  just a little danger lurking in the  exotic growth but the overall  effect is infinite and open.  Trudy Small's prices are  comfortable so if you are  considering the acquisition of  an original painting now is the  time to enjoy a visit to the Art  Centre.  Why is it that so many  denisens of the Sunshine Coast  react to the purchase of a work  of art as the Boston Brahmin  Ladies react to the purchase of  a hat. When queried, "Where  do you ladies buy your hats?"  the answer, expostulated by a  worthy matron, was "BUY  OUR HATS? We have o.ur  hats".

Save energy for early  April when enthusiasm returns.  Last chance to clear your name  regarding recent local incident.  Be ready to consider seriously  unusual job offer presented  Saturday. Distract co-worker  from proposal.  CANCER (June 22-July 22)  All forms of short distance  communications face delays.  Paperwork, short trips and  visits demand extra patience.  Delivery of important message  will need more time. Well tuned  vehicle is essential; defensive  driving a must. Last chance to  clarify statement from far  away.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22)  Trying to persuade friend or  acquaintance to speed up  performance or complete assignment is source of present  anxiety.

Meanwhile last  chance to draw attention of  someone who's recently gained  your respect. Emotional outburst impresses no one Saturday.  SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-  Dec. 21)  Promotion of position, special skills or abilities is subject  to delays. Danger now is  attempting more than you can  accomplish. Boss or superior  could become irritated by  aggressive, 'me-first' manner.  Remember quieter, more modest approach is healthier route  to success. Last chance to  consult household members  regarding beautification of  living space. Avoid secluded  place Saturday night.  CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-  Jan. 19)  Patience is key word for  those anticipating educational  opportunity far away or chance  to preach viewpoint. Be reassured that last year's letters  or requests will eventually  produce results. Meanwhile,  save on long distance calls and  postage by simply doing nothing. Last chance to arrange  happy social visit with neighbour. Saturday highlights  informative conversation with  stranger.  AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)  Enthusiasm for joint financial venture is subject to  temporary loss of spirit.

Meanwhile last chance to  bargain alone on rare deal.  Saturday introduces independent woman with ways to boost  your position.  PISCES (Feb. 19-Mar. 20)  Dealings with other people  face delays.

Perhaps the most dra-  ' matic and important contro-  ' versy of the time concerned the  ' age of the earth and the origins  of humanity. Geology was  emerging from its amateurish  adolescence to become a ma-  ' ture empirically based science.  ' Archaeology and palaeontology were still in their infancy.  Yet interest in the age of the  earth and the age of man was by  no means confined lo the 19th  century; Renaissance scholars  had studied the ruins and  writings ofthe great empires of  the past and the indiscriminate  collection of "antiquities" was  an amateur pastime of growing  popularity in the 18th century.  Even churchmen were not  immune to speculation about  Ihe past. Discontented with the  mythologically vague chronology of the bible, in 1650  Archbishop James Ussher,  having studied the generations  of the Bible and the ages ofthe  prophets, from the relatively  brief tenure of Enoch (365  years) to the decidedly ripe old  age of Methuselah (969 years),  published his findings. According to his calculations,  humanity originated with Adam, created by divine agency in  the year 4004 B.C. One of  Usshcr's contemporaries, Dr.  John Lightfooi. added a further element of precision,  declaring thai Adam was  created on October 2_> in 4004  B.C. at 9 o'clock in the  morning. Lightfoot was a  professor and Vice-Regent of  the University of Cambrige and  doubtless knew that God in his  wisdom would surely have  timed the creation of the first  man to coincide with the  begining of the academic year.  At any rate, Archbishop  Ussher's somewhat arbitrary  estimation of the age of  humanity was not only accepted, but became the definitive word on the subject for 200  years. Seemingly unquestionable as the Word of God. it all  but became part of Holy Writ;  many editions of the Bible  inserted the date 4004 B.C. in  the margins of Genesis. The  confident exactness ofthe date  satisfied the slowly but surely  growing demands of scientific  rationalism without offending  the churchmen who controlled  the educational establishment.  By the mid-19th century the  tension between science and  religion had reached breaking  point.

This  resulted in such bizarre hypotheses as Catastrophism  (which speaks for itself) and a  host of other often hilarious  mental acrobatics, some of  which have been resurrected  recently by the Russian scientist Immanuel Vclikovsky. One  of the best overviews of the  development of human historical perspective is called The  Discovery of Time by Stephen  Toulmin and June Goodficld  (Pelican Books. 1967). Toulmin and Goodficld go to great  pains to demonstrate just how  recent this development is: they  examine the reasons it took so  long and present an intensely  interesting account of this  dramatic transformation in  human thought.  Anthropologists have observed that the "historical"  sense of primitive illiterate  peoples extends little further  than three or four generations  into the past, from any given  time. Events and persons from  the more distant past may be  recalled, but they are relegated  to a kind of simultaneous  existence in a mythical "time  before time".

Becoming more  sophisticated, they see the  repetition itself as a reflection  of an external, perfect and  eternal order which the world  merely reflects or expresses.  For humanity to acquire historical perspective, it required  more than "history" itself, for  as the authors point out,  history is not a science. It docs  not   rest  on empirical  data.  True, the ruined monuments  and writings of the past are  evidence of a sort, but evidence which relics almost  totally upon interpretation and  thereby creates more questions  than it answers. In spite of a lew  voices crying in the wilderness  of the ages, to whom the  authors give their due, history  had to wait for the vindication  ol science in the form of sheer  weight of geological material  before prehistory could put it in  perspective. The discovery that  wc were dealing in millions  instead of thousands of years  altered for all time the way in  which we see ourselves, and the  discussion and controversy  which surrounded it continue  to this day, flaring up every  time we sift up another piece of  queerly chipped flint, another  fragment of oddly familiar  bone. All for now.  Vandalism can be combatted  Editor's Note: The following  piece from the Fort Nelson  Chamber of Commerce we  thought would be of interest on  the local scene. We hear a great  deal about the vandalism of the  young and we see evidences of it  in our communities. Too often, it  seems, our community leaders  deplore the symptoms while  ignoring the causes. Vandalism  is a protest, a protest of the  young and often inarticulate and  we feel that the story recounted  of vandalism successfully counteracted should be of interest to  all of us.  Fort Nelson Chamber of  Commerce gets'involved.  Al first impression, it would  seem an odd project for the  Chamber of Commerce. It  would sound more like a cause  that a Home and School  Association might become  involved with, but other towns  might like a brief history to  consider similar action, if they  arc plagued with vandalism.  Grad 78 was the last straw.  Every business in town was  painted. It was an expensive  defilement of property. A few  were caught and made to  repaint but not enough. The  town was in an ugly mood. We  dreaded Hallowe'en with its  egg throwing. Nothing was  sacred: businesses, homes, cars  or people. Eggs are worse than  soaping. All year we had  broken windows, destroyed  gardens, petty theft, too many  drinking drivers���adults and  youth alike were the offenders.  There were bullies in the  schools and on the streets.  Students and teachers were  both harassed.  The Manager of the Ovcr-  waitea Store, Blair McHallum,  was especially persecuted because he refused to sell eggs in  quantity to young people, two  weeks before Hallowe'en.  Some parents were incensed  and bought eggs for their kids.  He received broken plate glass  windows and broken glass and  lights in the parking lot. all year  around. The RCMP told him of  Ihe Veto Vandalism Campaign.  They could assist, but they  needed an organization to  support it. Blair and the RCM P  appealed lo the Chamber of  Commerce for help. Wc agreed  but asked that a committee,  representing the whole community be formed. It was off  and running.  Their first decision was to  keep it positive. Ideas like  vigilante group patrols were  immediately discarded in favour of youth and adults  working together to get everyone involved. Obviously, the  biggest problem was boredom  and lack of positive things to  do.  The Committee decided to  concentrate on Hallowe'en 78  and Grad 79. They involved  the Grad 79 class in helping  with Spookerama on Hallowe'en night. They built a fun  house and made posters. It  started with a candlelight  parade lo the Recreation  Centre, where there was music,  fun games, hand outs, fun  house, food for sale at cost,  bonfire, and ended for the little  ones at 9 p.m. with fireworks.  The older youth helped clean  up and then had a dance for all  ages. Spookerama 78 was a  success and, only a few eggs  were thrown the night before.  Cirad 79 class continued  raising money for their graduation. It was a well planned  event���they were treated like  people and showed respect in  return. Our whole town was  plastered with painted signs,  but on sheets and signboards  and they cleaned up afterwards. They arranged safe  driving for their all night  parties and considered the  RCMP their friends. Interested  parents of Committee members  held an all night coffee house  for a friendly drop-in place for  those who wished to go there.  This year's Spookerama was  a complete success. No eggs  were  thrown   except  at  the  Spookerama at prepared targets. Our Committee proved  the best way to stop vandalism  was to get involved. A small  price to pay compared to the  damage, expense and frustration felt by both sides previously.  Wc are proud of our community and our youth. The  Fori Nelson Chamber of Commerce salutes both and is  looking forward to Grad '80  and Spookerama '80.  l/D\ SUNSHINE  \Jy KITCHENS  FINE CABINETS  885-9411  Gibsons  WANTED  Used Furniture  and What Have You  ALS USED  FURNITURE  WE BUY BEER  BOTTLES  Super Loto  YOUR CHANCES AT GOOD FORTUNE  For winning numbers ask your lottery retailer, your  nearest branch of Canadian Imperial Bank of  Commerce or write to:  WESTERN CANADA LOTTERY FOUNDATION  1 Lakeview Square, Winnipeg, Manitoba R3C 3H8  Science  Christian Science Society  Sechelt commences February  with its new readership; Amy  Watts, First Reader; Margaret  Slater, Second Reader.

The rantings  and ravings of party politics;  Ihe pathetic attempts to bribe  us wilh our own money ring  hollow and seem childish at a  umc when there are so many  important issues and tough  decisions to be made.  It lair boggles the mind that  anyone who aspires to rc-  present us in the halls of power  can be so naive as lo believe  that a Canadian of whatever  political stripe could influence  the Americans over the choice  ,ii a route fur the transportation i'l Alaskan nil. Is it  arrogance or do those candidates who try lo persuade us  their leader is a magician just  think we are stupid'.' Imagine  yourself in Jimmy Carter's  shoes, you're lacing an election  loo and saddled with problems  abroad as well as those twin  millstones of rising inflation  and unemployment. Would  win opi lor a pipeline through  another country to provide  jobs for their nationals? Of  curse you wouldn't. You'd go  lor ihe all American route���  you wouldn't have any other  political choice. Politics is the  ail of the expedient���it has to  he jam today���jam yesterday is  already forgotten and jam  tomorrow is something few of  us believe in any longer.  liven aware Canadian understands such basic politics  and consequently recognizes  [lie hypocrisy in the stance of  lar too mans candidates.  Then there is a certain Mr.  I. who has ihe nerve to come  out lo British Columbia and  bemoan ihe possible fate of our  beautiful coastline now that the  tanker traffic will increase  dramatically. We well remember the lack of response in  Ottawa during the past decade  when wc cried in vain for help,  lor some indication that anyone in the rest of the country  cared about what would happen lo our coast when a  massive spill occurs.  Our current crop of politicians remind one of an American religious sect which con-  fidently predicted that the  world would end in 1914.  When, despite upheavals, life  went on they had some interesting rationalizations to explain their mistake; a sligh'  error in calculation, wc really  meant the year 2014; well, it  would have ended but we  prayed very hard and interceded with God who spared the  world this time; some even  insisted the world had in fact  ended and disbelievers hadn't  noticed. Well, that was their  lookout. Our politicians, it  seems to me, give us just such  transparent evasions. Why do  we lei I hem get away with such  shameless dishonesty and contempt lor our intelligence?  I'rohahlv because we don't  sec an\ viable alternative to the  present part) political system���but there has lo be one.  Ihe world is laced with  serious problems���national  antagonisms and nuclear arsenals; growing populations;  Lints between ihe poor  and the affluent, which with  inflation and unemployment  grows ever wider; shortages of  food and natural resources and  the inadvertent alterations to  the natural environment. We  are. in fact, in a fight for  survival, not just forCanadians  but for the human race and our  lily spaceship Garth. We're all  in this together. How do our so-  called leaders respond?  Do they rally Canadians to  pull together, to share our  resources in a responsible way  lor essentials for all rather than  squandering them in luxuries  lor a few? Do they ask us, each  to contribute individually by  making sacrifices for the fight  for survival? Do they appeal lo  that courageous, tough, innovative and independent  spirit for which Canadians  were formerly famous and  which presumably still exists  beneath the fat of easy living?  Do they encourage strong  community feelings, to be our  brother's keeper? Do they  remind us of our responsibilities as stewards in this mighty,  once proud land, to hand it on  to our children in a viable,  productive state? Do they  appeal to our better natures, to  our generosity, our capacity to  love our neighbours and make  sacrifices for the common  good?  Sadly the answer is no.  Having allowed themselves  to be led by the nose by the  sensation-seeking media, for  whom only disaster and mayhem and violence is news, they  indulge in petty mudslinging,  ridicule, character assassination and divisiveness. Rather  than come to grips with the  issues and the real causes of our  problems, they offer bandaids,  treat us like children who can  be bluffed into believing in tales  of fairy godmothers, appealing  to our gullibility and our greed,  that perhaps we can have our  bread buttered on both sides  and get away with it while  others starve.  If we get the government we  deserve on February 18���will il  be basically honest, tough and  courageous, willing to come to  grips with difficult decisions? It  seems at this point unlikely so  perhaps the place to start any  reformation is, as usual, with  ourselves.  &<>  em.   ._,  "'   '**f  saw.-.  ffep#  This unsightly mess ot garbage is strewn on the power line just west of the B & K  Logging Road.  Skelly supports marina  Courtenay-" Well-planned  development of a small craft  harbour at Gibsons will  strenghen the recreation resources and service industry  of Howe Sound and the Sunshine Coast," Comox-Powell  River MP Ray Skelly said  today. The New Democrat MP  was responding to a request  by the Gibsons and District  Chamber of Commerce to  support the marina proposal.  A story of trademarks  by Allan Crane  The RCA Victor Sale at J &  C Electronics in the Trail Bay  Mall this week is highlighted  by a representation of one of  the best known trade marks in  To achieve this, a 1904 Victor  Talking Machine Company  gramophone has been used  with a woolen black and white  terrier representing Nipper  listening to "His Master's  Voice". The trade mark itself has an interesting history  going back several years earlier than the 1904 gramophone  in the J & C Electronics display.  Originally, Nipper had been  painted by his master, one  Francis Barraud, listening to  an Edison phonograph which,  of course, played the cylinder  records. (A machine of this  type can be seen in the Elphinstone Pioneer Museum in Gibsons.) No one had evinced  much interest in the painting,  and a friend suggested to Barraud that he update it by substituting one of the new brass  horned gramophones which  played the disc records.  This the painter duly undertook to do, and when the  painting was revamped he  took it to William Barry Owen,  the Managing Director of the  fledgling Gramophone Company in Hayes, Middlesex,  who promptly purchased it.  This was in 1899, but it was to  be ten years before the famous  dog appeared on records  manufactured by the Gramophone Company.  The Company, which at that  time also manufactured typewriters, already had a trade  mark in the form of an angel  writing with a quill on a  gramophone disc. Every record pressed at the Company's plant in Hanover carried an image of the "recording angel" as did the Company's literature  After 1909, the angel trade  mark virtually disappeared, (it  did appear on the blank sides  of His Master's Voice records  until about 1920) to re-emerge  in 1953 on Angel Records.  In 1899, the Gramophone  Company's Owen did not feel  inclined to change trade  marks. The inventor of the  disc phonograph, Emile Berliner, however, had taken out  a United States copyright on  the picture of Nipper listening to the gramophone, and  to Eldridge Johnson of the  Victor Talking Machine Company, Barraud's little fox terrier seemed eminently pro-  motable. From 1900 on, Johnson put the dog's picture on  the new paper labels he had  introduced to replace the old  Berliner method of molding  the record information right  the shellac of the discs. Nipper had died five years before his true value began to be  appreciated, but the Gramophone Company in 1949 rather  belatedly honoured him by  placing a plaque on the bank  in Eden Street, Kingston-on-  Thames, erected on the site of  a Mulberry tree under which  Nipper was buried.  The famous dog continued  to be used on records manufactured by the Victor Talking  Machine Company and, from  1909, on His Master's Voice  records manufactured by the  Gramophone Company. In  1929 the Victor Talking Machine was purchased by the  Radio Corporation of America, and one of the world's  most famous trade marks be  came the property of the new  RCA Victor Company whose  main interest it soon transpired was in the manufacture  of the recently developed  radios. Today, the RCA Victor  Company is involved in the  manufacture of television sets  where the famous trade mark  can still be seen.  White  Cane  "This is White Cane Week;  Make blindness your concern",  said CNIB Managing Director,  Ross C. Purse. "Most people  think that blindness is something that happens to someone  else. In reality, anyone could be  one of the more than 2,600  Canadians to lose their sight  this year."  White Cane Week activities  across Canada, February 3-9,'  are sponsored by CNIB and  The Canadian Council of the  Blind to promote eye safety and  develop understanding between sighted and visually  impaired Canadians.  During this White Cane  Week, begin a personal eye  safety program. Wear proper  eye safety protection when  playing sports, doing home  repairs, or on the job. Have  regular medical check ups.  Consider sharing your sight  by filling out an eye donar card  for the Eye Bank of Canada or  by offering a friendly arm or  help to a blind person when it is  needed.  ROMAN CATHOLIC  SERVICES  Kc\.

Carbon monoxide poisoning is a very real hazard in many homes throughout  British Columbia. This odorless, invisible killer is produced when combustion  takes place without a proper supply of air. With the recent drive to conserve heat  and energy, many homes have been made much more air-tight, and with the  combination of a burning fireplace, a gas-burning furnace and the normal  compliment of appliances and exhaust fans in operation, a potentially lethal  situation can occur. Gas furnaces normally have their own air supply, however, it  is often not of sufficient size to supply the additional air demands of fireplaces  and exhaust fans. A fireplace should have its own air supply duct or a window  should be opened in the room where a fireplace is being used. Don't take  chances���learn about the hazards of carbon monoxide ... have a qualified  heating expert check your home for its air supply needs.

"My the  steering feels odd," said driver  Ilrank as we slid to a halt.  1 saving the car we were all  prrforming exotic foot main-  ti nance dances. A new craze  c tiled "The Flail" soon to be  pqpular at Studio 51. From  Kingston on, trouble lights a-  blirik we pressed on at about 10  to,20 kph. Every once in a while  a jocko would sail by us going  35, only to glare woefully from  a ditch 100 yards on down.  There were sanding trucks  upside down, skating vehicles,  tow trucks and police in the  gathering murk and cars  sprawled across the dividing  boulevard in various stages of  disarray. Our yeoman driver  Frank managed with incredible  dexterity to keep both on the  road and out of other people's  accidents.  ! We crossed the border without having to show passports,  the road signs became uni-  lingually French and I was  b^ck in my old hometown,  Montreal.  ;Most of Montreal's sluice-  b<jx freeways are more attractive than Toronto's because they curve their way  around the mountain and you  ge,t specks of delicious view.  Montreal is also a city of  churches without the benefit of  Mpthodist austerity. The chur-  chjes are great wedding cakes of  rejigious turrets, arches, crossed, steps, niches with statues,  attached nunneries with long  narrow windows and grilled  doorways. My goodness, those  chjurches practically fling you  to;'your knees and they give  your sins the decency of some  dr��ma. You get the feeling that  il'Totonto's chilly pinch-nosed  churches might let you off the  hqok, Montreal's would deluge  ycjjl with rivers of warm,  sympathetic forgiveness. It's a  nice thought and I enjoy  looking at interesting, imaginative buildings anyway.  Cemeteries seem less overt  here except for that huge  Mp'unt Royal one where some  of, Montreal's oldest families lie  in:'stately but uncomfortable  prb'ximity to other of Montreal's greats whom they  couldn't stand when they were  alive.  lii Montreal you are always  aware of the island, waterfront  feeling whereas Toronto seems  prairieish.  St. Urbain Street of Morde-  cai; Richler and my old Art  School fame seems quiet and  different; I looked around and  couldn't see any ofthe old deli's  where we used to buy dills and  foot-long weenies. Many large  institutional buildings, such as  the Hotel Dieu Hospital,  appear to have leaped several  blocks without altering a brick  but only the roads have been  changed and curved. The once  shining great homes on West-  mount Boulevard have grayed  and shrunk, again the older  sophisticated eye notices the  small sized lots (...but I  remember garden parties...  were the houses always that  close...?were all the neighbours  : Sunco Printing  Jul  Services Ltd.  886-7614  teOBBBBgOBMBBBBMOBBB  always invited???) Has life in  B.C. widened my horizons to  the extent or does fond memory  lend luster to what was probably quite pedestrian. I had  forgotten the birch trees. The  peerless, swooping, shining  silver birches!  Ah, but Montreal still has the  thoroughbred sheen of cashmere and pearls; an insouciant  grande dame who is getting on  but keeping up appearances  without having lost a shred of  her ambiance of elan. There is  still that European energy-  dash-vivacity. "Merdc les Anglais" is just part ofthe old nose  thumbing spirit. By comparison, Toronto is a raddled old  broad wearing flannel bloomers and sup-hose under her  plunging neckline.  Heading north to Quebec's  fabled and oft painted l.aurcn-  tian hills we tackled a 'pay-as-  you-go' freeway, (long since  paid for and now a happy  source of extra revenue). You  pop a quarter into a basket  every so many miles, distances  do vanish, and in only an hour  there sits A.Y. Jackson's Ste.  Agathe.  Almost unchanged, Ste.  Agathe's brightly coloured,  steep Quebec roofs sit every  which way, snugged on lovely  winding, hilly roads. It is a  Group of Seven painting.  Many of the darling houses are  painted in three or four different primary colours against  a backdrop of sloppy snow on  fat little pine trees. In British  Columbia, I want to murder  the owner of a cohoe pink or  glaring turquoise house because I feel that it is quarreling  with its green tree, blue sky  surroundings. Why then am I  so delighted with these violent  primary colours in picturesque  Quebec? One home may have a  bright red roof, french blue  trim and clear yellow siding  and radiate charm even with a  totally contrasting neighbour.  It makes us seem conservative  and drab by comparison. The  houses are scattered and  hugged by fluffy, snowy, fat  little hummocks and hills. I  love it. It is both a refutation  and a vindication of all my art  school training. It works there  and now I wonder if maybe it  could work here. No. The  charm of Ste. Agathe is awesome and had slipped from my  memory but it belongs where it  is.  As to skiiing, I stumbled up,  gasping and wheezing, and  down one skidoo trail, highly  offended at my young physicist's remonstrations and obvious fear of my immediate  demise. My skiing days are  behind me. OUCH.  My hosts were marvellous if  overly generous with rich and  toothsome foods. As for my  detestable French, I had only to  whine "Je suis de Colombie  Britannique et je ne me sou-  viens la langue" and I was the  recipient of broad smiles and  all the cooperation I could  ask...much to my Montreal  dwelling sister's chagrin.  We returned to Montreal  where we caught the "Via Rail  Rapido" back to Toronto and  the flight home. I adored the  trip. I adored coming home. I  remain a convert, a westerner  by choice but it sure is nice to  get around.

Pender School news  by Dawn Adamson  There is a baskethon  coming up soon and just in  case you haven't heard, I'll  explain how it works. The object of the Baskethon is to  raise funds for basketball uniforms and trips. It has been  quite successful in the past  and we hope it will continue  to be. Here's the way it works:  sponsors indicate their pledge  per basket and the player has  two minutes to shoot from the  foul line. The number of baskets scored usually ranges  from two to twenty baskets. A  prize of a school jacket will be  given to the person who  raises the most msney, so you  can expect a lot of visits.  Thanks for your support.  Speaking about basketball,  our Junior Girls' team did  well in Sechelt last Tuesday,  with a very fast-moving game.  Although they tried very hard,  they did not come home with  a victory. The score was 41-31.  The Outdoors Club had a  "Burger Poll" last Wednesday. The idea is that people  who wish to express their  approval for the famous Outdoors Club burgers could also  express their choice of political parties. The scores were:  NDP 31, Liberal 7, Conservative 4.  In the Foods classes, the  students have been sellling  some of their cooked products  to the student body at very  reasonable prices and therefore covering some of their  costs so they are able to cook  more often during the year.  Thank you, Mrs, Whatley, for  getting us organized and started with this great idea.  Recommendations are an  issue among the students. The  Ministry of Education has  recommended that recommendations not be given to students in Grades 8, 9, and 10.  Normally, students who maintain high marks throughout  the year would be excused  from writing the final exam.  Some students say thay's why  they work all year, and now  they don't care what happens  to their marks.  Everyone was writing  exams last week and you sure  could notice it in the library;  seeing all of the seats taken,  people drilling each other,  studying at the last minute,  worrying about passing or  failing, It was tough but at  least there was some reward.  All students got Friday off���  the Semester turnaround day.  Meanwhile the teachers have  to mark a thousand papers,  but they could always cut  down on their marking by  giving us smaller tests, isn't  that right? Reports will be  issued February 11th.

On becoming a Rover  Ramblings of a Rover  bv Dec Cce  If I had had one iota of  common sense or had I known  the grief that it would get us  into I would never have had  anything to do with Arthur's  scatter-brained scheme to get  all these girls into a delicate  condition or, as the French say,  enceinte. The idea itself was  preposterous and the magnitude ofthe task before us���300  young females to "look after" in  the scant space of five days,  should have dissuaded anyone  possessing even a fragment of a  brain. However, completely  mesmerized by Arthur's logic,  or lack of it, we went at the task  with a fervour and enthusiasm  that would have done credit to  King Arthur's Knights in their  legendary quest for the Holy  Grail!  The night before, during our  session in the third class bar,  Arthur had outlined to me  some of the intricacies of life  on his uncle's ranch with  particular emphasis on the  herding of cattle and how one  could "cut out" a single individual in the herd, be it steer  or heifer, with the aid of a horse  and a dexterity with the lasso. I  must have been dense as when I  enquired what this had to do  with separating one girl from  the 300 or so others and,  especially seeing that we were  on board a ship without as far  as I knew either a horse or a  lasso (unless of course Arthur  had one of the latter in his  luggage), he became quite  irritated and called me a  complete fool for not understanding that the principle of it  was the same, horse or no  horse. I let it go at that!  I must admit that Arthur had  many things going for him in  this proposed wholesale seduction that I only wished I had  possessed. For a start he was  about four years older than  myself which would have put  him at about 22 years of age.  He was around six feet in height  and had that tanned, lean and  hard look that gave him a  striking resemblance to the  males appearing in the advertisements for Marlboro  cigarettes���"the Marlboro  Country Look". To heighten  the similarity he wore a Stetson  hat and had a cool unflappable  disposition and a charming  smile that exuded confidence in  his own ability to handle any  situation that might occur. It is  no wonder that at Ihe start of  our campaign, before we ran  into difficulties, he was really  cutting a swath through the  ranks of these British and  French girls whom 1 feel certain  had never belore had the  opportunity to meet such a  handsome and plausible rogue.  Everything mighl have gone  off according to plan but for  the presence of these young  ladies' chapcrones. I estimated  that among the girls from  Britain there were about six of  them while four accompanied  the French contingent. Whoever picked these viragos must  have been really concerned  about protecting the virtue of  all these young women in their  charge as a more hideous  assemblage of formidable and  frigid spinsters il would be  impossible to imagine. Most of  them were in their forties,  hatchet faced and grim and. as  Arthur commented to me when  one of his choice targets  escaped his clutches due to  their interference, "they looked  like some of the figures he had  seen in the Chamber of Horrors  when on a visit to Madame  Tussauds' Wax Museum back  in London".  As I have remarked previously, we weren't doing too  badly until these doughty  dames started to block our  efforts to populate the Dominion of Canada in a hurry!  Every time I met Arthur, either  up on the promenade deck or  on his way down to our cabin  on C Deck, he had another  likely looking candidate for  motherhood in tow and, according to him (by this time I  was convinced he was an  incorrigible liar), he was  "knocking them off or "knocking them up" to use his vulgar  expression, at the rate of about  three an hour! Had this been  true it would have proved he  not only possessed remarkable  stamina but, had he have  patented his formula for overcoming a girl's scruples and  surrendering her chastity, and  marketed it via the mail order  route, he would have amassed a  fortune in no time at all!  As far as I was concerned I  seemed to be doomed to failure  right from the start. For one  thing I didn't have the confidence that Arthur had and the  bar didn't open till 5:30 p.m. so  that I could assimilate some in  liquid form and, what was  more to the point, these girls  under the assistance plan by  their respective governments  were not allowed to enter the  bar even with escorts. I had the  idea, and so had Arthur, that if  we could get these girls good  and soused it would facilitate  their seduction but with these  stupid regulations in force that  plan had to be abandoned. We  tried to bribe one of the  stewards who looked after  some girls' cabins to let us  borrow his pass key but he  would have "none of that  monkey business", as he termed  it, so that brilliant idea evaporated into thin air. Talk about  frustration! Here they were,  300 young, vibrant specimens  of feminity just aching to be  seduced and due to the eagle-  eyed surveillance of their  chaperons and the incredibly  stupid rules regarding the sale  of alcoholic beverages to them,  it was almost an impossibility  to make any progress.  I did manage to get at least  one or two to accompany me to  the cabin I shared with Arthur  but each time, just when things  were getting interesting and I  was well on my way, so I  thought, to becoming a father,  there came a thunderous  knocking on the door and,  without even asking permission the door was opened with  a pass key and on the threshold was one of these hollow-  eyed hags accompanied by a  ship's officer, demanding that  we cease forthwith whatever we  were doing, and the poor girl  was literally yanked out of n.y  passionate embrace and ordered upstairs. On another  occasion I had a really nice  plump little chick stretched out  under one of the lifeboats  around 10:30 p.m. and once  again, just when I thought I was  getting somewhere, a flashlight  shone its beam on to us and this  time the girl was ordered below  decks as apparently there was a  10:00 p.m. curfew in effect,  when all the girls had to be off  the  decks and down  below  by Alan Karmazyn  I haven't done a whole lot of  things in my life that I regret...  until I taught my dog to write.  It started out innocently e-  nough; I wanted to do something helpful for the community. I figured with the growing  population and importance of  dogs in today's society that it  might be helpful for them in  their struggle to survive if they  could read and write. They'd  know when the dog catcher was  coming, what was in the food  they were eating, how to read  street signs and various other  vitally significant information.  So with such benevolent  thoughts in mind, I proceeded  to hang signs all over town  announcing that I was giving  reading and writing lessons for  the beginning dog. That was  my first mistake. It hadn't  dawned on me that the dogs  wouldn't be able to read the  signs, (silly me). I should have  just told them.  As it turned out, I only had  one pupil. My dog...Minook.  Simply because he was my only  pupil he caught on fast. He was  given a whole bunch of private  attention which is so important  to the development and growth  of a student. In this case it was  too much. He got real good;  too good as a matter of fact. I  can't even read the newspaper  anymore without him reading  over my shoulder. I hate that. It  really bugs me having someone  reading over my shoulder all  the time. If that isn't enough,  he's writing a book. A book  about the life of a supressed  dog. Can you believe that? Of  all the nerve...and especially  after I taught the little bone  nibbler how to write in the first  somewhere  counted.  in   order  to  be  I was warned repeatedly, and  so for that matter was Arthur,  to leave these young female  emigrants alone, not only by  their chaperons but by the  ship's officers, but we paid no  heed. Perhaps had we known  what the results of our unsuccessful philandering would lead  to and the ensuing difficulties  we were to face in the city of  Quebec, our port of entry, we  would have listened to the voice  of reason but then who knows,  with a pair of fools like us  anything was possible���eventually we had to learn the hard  way!  1' Is Your Car  BEGGING For A  i Second Chance?,  BEAUTIFUL BODIES  ARE OUR BUSINESS^  BRIAN'S AUTO BODY  ft PAINTING LTD.

Now he's so busy writing his  book he doesn't have time to  play with me anymore. He  won't even go for a stupid walk.  Says he'd rather spend his  spare time reading. And if he's  not reading he's off visiting  publishers, or seeing about  copyrights or having lunch  with his lawyer. Can you  believe that? A dog with a  lawyer, (sheesh).  Then, just the other day,  Minook goes to the optometrist  because his eyes are getting  blurry from reading and writing so much...all of a sudden.  He needs glasses! But he doesn't want glasses. Oh no, not  him, he wants contact lenses.  Says he doesn't want to look  like Mr. Peabody. Well, I told  him if he didn't want to look  like Mr. Peabody that he  should quit calling me Sherman  or I'd make him look a lot  worse than that. He agreed...  and then he told me to go and  buy him some contact lenses.  What gall! I told him to go buy  his own contact lenses with all  the royalties from his stupid  book. That was that...until his  lawyer called the next day to  tell me that if I didn't buy them,  they would sue. According to  the lawyer I was responsible  because I taught him to read  and write in the first place. So I  had to shell out over a hundred  bucks so my mouthy mutt  could have contacts. We put a  new meaning to the phrase  "seeing eye dog".  Yet, there is still something  that annoys me more than all of  the above and that is all the  outrageous notes he leaves me  all the time. Notes like:  Dear Alan,  Gone fishing with the gang.  Be back Sunday. No need to  worry.  Bow Wow,  Minook  P.S. I borrowed the car but  don't worry, I can read the  signs now.  or  Dear Sherman,  Out having a business luncheon with my lawyer and  publisher. Be back in time for  dinner.  Chow Wow,  Minook  P.S. We're out of dog food  again and don't buy anymore  of that gravy train. I'm sick of  that crap, besides, there's too  many preservatives in it.  or  Dear Alan,  There is that funny scent in  the air again. Can't help myself,  it's been a long time. Gone to  check it out. Don't wait up for  me, (wink, wink).  rrrowwrrrf  Minook (The lover dog)  P.S. I tried some of your new  after shave, hope you don't  mind.  Dogs are wonderful animals.  I hope that if you have a dog  you will love him with all your  heart. Enjoy him! Take him for  walks, run with him, play with  him, swim with him, throw a  stick, kick him, do whatever  you want with him...but please  for the sake of your sanity, do  not teach him to read and write.

Inglis  Sunshine Coast  United Churches  The time is long overdue for  [many of the mainline churches  itto'make a comprehensive and  ^realistic overhaul of their role  nd purpose in the mission  fields.  Tjiere is still muchjwork to be  lone in "foreign fields", but the  $fcpeed of communications,  transportation and culture  transition has blurred the  clarity of the picture of what is  foreign in this global'village of  ours, and what is domestic. In  short, it is becoming difficult to  know who should bejicnding  Ihe missionaries to wnom!  J�� It was always very simple, in  the 19th and early 20th centuries, to look at China and  Africa, Australia and Canada  as ripe and fertile fields for  harvesting souls. India was also  wide open for missionary work,  and South America was ripe for  adventurous missionaries, particularly among the evangelical  denominations.  I The Protestant mission fields  jtverc supplied largely in the  ���early, days of mission work by  ;^tie Moravian Pietists, a zealous  'group of crusading Christians  from the small village of Herrn-  hut, in Saxony���a village and  'fociety which operated purely  on New Testament guidelines,  and their zeal in following the  Great Commission of Matthew  28:19 was so great it impressed  the great John Wesley to the  point where he spent a summer  at the village, learning how to  live the faithful life of a  missionary.  The criteria for selecting  elds in which to do missionary  ork were reasonably simple in  le early days���the country  oiild be remote from the  lapitals of Europe and the  icople unenlightened in the  uropean Christian standards,  hat may be putting it sim-  ilistically, but it was generally  Speaking, the yardstick by  [Which many of the mission  Societies worked.  |   The Moravian Pietists them  selves did magnificent work in  the South Seas, along with the  Congregationalists of the U-  nited States, and the Roman  Catholic Church had almost a  monopoly on South America,  but for the most part, the  missionaries found it was more  expedient to cast denomination  aside and work together in an  early revival of the ecumenism  of the ancient church.  In fact, the World Council of  Churches, the most prestigious  ecumenical church body in the  world today, grew out of the  mission societies themselves,  and was nurtured by the need  for inter-faith stewardship and  dialogue which the missionaries had first recognized.  In the early days of missionary work, the underlying  basis of meeting was desperate  need; the "privileged" society  extending its largesse and  knowledge of the gospel message to those who were in need  of both. The reception of the  missionaries was mixed, especially in China, where an  ancient culture of rich background presented a powerful  barrier to the young "upstarts"  from the painfully new European nations.  On the whole, however,  missionaries made magnificent  strides in bringing western  civilization and culture to the  eastern societies, and the  educational and medical presence was a rich boon to many  of the recipients of their work,  even aside from the splendid  spiritual heritage which they  bequeathed, as agents of the  living Christ, the Lord and  Saviour of mankind.  In recent years, however,  China has become pretty well a  closed field for western missionaries; India is still a field for  social work and form medical  aid and counsel, although the  indigenous practitioners seem  to prefer to accept help.  Africa is in the midst of the  most powerful and enthusiastic  growth of the Christian church  since the days of the apostle  Paul, and there has been some  serious talk about Africa and  other "third world" countries  sending missionaries to North  America, where Christianity is  fighting a rear guard action  against secularism, and where  the mainline churches are now  a beleaguered minority presence.  South American countries  have been politely declining the  missionary presence from  places outside the Latin American milieu, on the grounds that  North Americans and Europeans, in particular, do not  have the faintest idea how God  is working in the revolutionary  atmosphere which is a way of  life to the South American,  Christian or non-believer alike.  It is slowly coming home to  many of the mainline churches  in North' America, and dramatically so in Canada, that  there may be a need for  missionaries to be working  zealously in fields much closer  to home, working among the  disadvantaged and culturally  unawakened of the native  Canadians and immigrants,  teaching by example and by  action the message of love and  fellowship which Jesus Christ  brought to a world that was  badly in need of such a  message, 2,000 years ago.  It is not alone the native  Canadians and immigrants  who are in need of missionary  zeal, either, in a country which  has the greatest potential for  wealth in the world, and yet has  Coast News, February 5, 1980  should  be  simple and compassionate and without price.

Heart Foundation.  Anyone who has been through a traumatic experience where they,  or a loved one, has had to fight for survival, or fight to achieve a degree  of normalcy after suffering from such an ailment as cancer in its many  forms, heart failure, blindness, muscular dystrophy, and many, many  more kinds of human illness must surely have paused to either marvel  at the wonders of modern medical knowledge in their successful  treatment or wish that there was something more that could be done to  save a human life, or alleviate suffering.  If you have had blindness in your family or are touched by someone  who is blind you must think of the work of the Canadian Institute for the  Blind for their work is commendable, and truly the blind can best lead  "the blind".  If you have had an experience with cancer and all its dreadful degrees  of human suffering, one cannot help but give support to the Canadian  Cancer Research Foundation.  If you have a history of ailments relating to the heart or have seen the  sudden passing of a friend or acquaintance from heart failure, one must  feel prompted to do something.  Knowing how to avoid these major catastrophies, or treat them  correctly in all their many formsand phases requires years of research.  Research is an endless task of trying and testing where success is built  at great cost upon unending investigation and experiment, of countless  failures. Yet without research we learn nothing new.  February is B.C. Heart Foundation Month. PLEASE GIVE  SOMETHING TO HELP PAY FOR RESEARCH. Out of every dollar  you give, 70$ goes to Research and 19<t goes to Education and  Informative Literature. In Heart Research, Canada has led the field in  some major achievements, such as Hypothermia (Blood Cooling) for  open heart surgery; pacemakers, of which numerous people in this  area are the beneficiaries; human heart valve replacement; and artery  transplants.  Help yourself, help others, by giving to the B.C. Heart Foundation. In  our area there will be a door to door canvass being organized by Mrs.  Jean Longley, telephone 886-7794. She would like volunteers to  canvass their area from Hopkins Landing to Roberts Creek. They need  help, especially in the outlying areas. Let's get total coverage in  SUPPORT OF THE B.C. HEART FOUNDATION.  Every little bit, from a lot, adds up!  And now, as the T.V. personalities oft times say, "I must pause  to sell some merchandise,���so don't go away, please!"

Coast News, February 5, 1980  Sweeping too last for the camera to stop the action, this competitor in the Port Mellon  Bonspiel tries to knock the opponents rock out of the circle. The final winners of the  Bonspiel was the rink skipped by Roger Hocknell. They will be going to Prince George  in the middle of March for the Pulp Mill playoffs.  On the Rocks^  Many thanks to Larry Boyd  for his ideas and the organizing  of our Second (hopefully  Annual!) Fun Night Spiel on  January 19. The Blues scored  well in the first few ends but  were overtaken and nudged out  by the Whites. Final score for  the evening 28/26.  Congratulations from all of  us to Gordon Shcad, Maureen  Kinniburgh, Dan Rietlo, and  Carole Skytte on the excellent  curling that won them first  prize in the "A" event at Powell  River's Mixed Open Bonspiel.  It's nice to see some of the  prizes starting to come our  way!  Our own Men's Club Spiel,  held on the weekend of January  26/27, was won by the Larry  Boyd rink. Dave Richardson  curled third, Damir Shtenz  second, and Sean Boyd lead.  (Take note everyone, they all  used push brooms.) A special  star to Damir, he is one of our  Juniors and he curled excellently.  The Juniors have been very  busy people this past month.  We had the second best represented club when three teams of  our Junior Juveniles spent a  weekend of curling in Vancouver. They placed well in the  overall standings and gained  much valuable experience.  Two teams from the High  School Boys did us proud with  their third place finish out of  eight when they recently spent a  weekend of curling at Holly-  burn.  Our High School Girls sent a  team to the North Shore  Winter Club, showing great  improvement in just the few  months they have curled together. I hear that if these girls  can stick together for the next  few years we may have some  champions in the making!  There is a trip to the  Richmond Winter Club coming in February for the Juniors  and we want the parents to  know they are very welcome  and that their support is  needed. Four teams from  Richmond will be here on  February 23 so plan to spend  that Saturday at the Winter  Club and see some curling that  the adults can all learn from.  The regular Junior League  Round Robin has started  following Christmas break.  Later this spring the winners  will play off for Junior Championship Awards for teams and  individuals. At the rate our  Juniors are going, it won't be  long before we'll see some of  these awards coming this way!  On the slopes  by Roberta Esau  Several members of the  Tetrahedron Ski Club are  proudly sporting "I did it"  badges as a result of completing  the 50 kilometre curse of the  Caribou Marathon, which took  place at 100 Mile House on  January 26. Conditions for this  annual event were extremely  poor; the temperature was -25  degrees; there was a chilly wind  blowing, very little snow and an  icy track. For those of you in  the know, it was "green klister  weather". The bright sunshine  did little to warm things up but  kept us from being entirely  miserable.  Despite the frigid conditions  1400 cross-country skiers lined  up for the mass 8:30 a.m.  shotgun start at the 108 .Ranch.  The start was quite a sight as all  the skiers moved off in a wide  arc onto the track; the sleekly-  suited racers out in front while  the heavily bundled "tourers"  made up the bulk of the  entrants. Within 2 kilometres  everyone's faces, hair, toques,  beards, moustaches, or whatever were frosted up as our  breath froze in the cold air.  The winner of the Marathon  skied the course in 2 hours, 57  minutes. Ryan Matthews ofthe  Tetrahedron club Finished in 5  hours while other club members took about 8 hours.

The majority of bowling proprietors  have always kept a low key  approach as far as getting new  customers, new leagues, etc., so  this campaign will be quite a  change.  Bowling proprietors have a  penchant for staying in the  background and trying to keep  out of the way. The farther into  the woodwork we can melt the  better we seem to like it. Our  main concern of course is our  paying customers. This is the  way we make our living and we  have quite a large investment in  equipment, buildings, land,  etc., so we have to have paying  customers. A proprietor budgets on so much money coming  in per league and when a  bowler misses a shift this is  taking money directly out of his  pocket. Most proprietors accept this as part ofthe game but  over the year this adds up to a  substantial amount. There is no  other business that depends on  the whims of so many people  and as owners of bowling  centers we have to realize that  we do have a business. If we are  going to compete in the business world then we have to sell  our product the same as any  other business and this advertising campaign will be the  start.  Bowling is a sport and a good  one. It can be as individual as  playing golf or as team-like as  any team sport. You can make  bowling whatever suits you.  There are team tournaments  that are as exciting as any sport  and there are tournaments  where you bowl as a single and  this gives you a different  satisfaction.  Bowling is one of the few  sports that encompasses all  ages and whether you are four  or 94 the most important thing  is 'Doing It'.  We try to keep a calm,  relaxed atmosphere in our  centers and we do work at this  business even though it may  seem we don't. 90% of the work  is done before or after bowling  hours. If this advertising  campaign does what we're told  it will do, I just hope that  proprietors don't become so  obsessed with the almighty  dollar that we lose our perspective of the sport of bowling.  I, personally, am a little  apprehensive about this change  in attitude and I hope we keep  the positive side of bowling in  the forefront.  300 games last week:  Classic League  Dianne Fitchell 331  Gwen Edmonds 348  Jane Coates 318  Freeman Reynolds       311  Tuesday Coffee League  Marg Iverson 311  Slough Offs League  Cathy Martin  323  Ball and Chain League  Phyllis Francis 317  Phuntastique League  Don Slack 300  Legion League  Don Slack 309  Jeff Mulcaster 336  Ernie Schwindt 373  SSF^ttentiom  If your Club has any  Sports News and you  want it in the Paper,  contact Ian Corrance at  886-2622 or 886-7817.

Carl'  s corner  ;  by Carl Chrismas  Flying a light aircraft on the  orth Coast at any time of year  an keep an experienced pilot  n.his toes trying to second  uess the weather and keep his  iird in the air. Despite the.  "continually updated forecasts  put out by the weather people  grained in what can be considered at the best of times, a  lyery inexact science, an airplane driver must be able to  l^eep one eye peeled for that  black old squall line that can  'indicate a fast moving front  '(hat could tear him apart in  ���minutes.  !; For a low time pilot, learning  ��� how to cope with conditions  ��� that only that North country  'can breed on short notice, is  ��� like playing Russian roulette  ��� with the grim reaper!  ��� I was that low time pilot the  morning I left Prince Rupert  [under beautiful sunny skies,  broken only by the odd puffy,  [cumulus clouds, drifting along  like trumpeter swans, slowly  and sedately crossing a pond of  deep, blue water.  My little float plane was  burring along smoothly and  [quietly, the hum of the motor  and faint crackle of radio  noises in my head set lulling me  into a sense of security. A gut  feel of power and full control of  [my fate seemed to flow from  [deep within me, through my  ���shoulder's down my arms into  thands that were steady on the  [column, flicking deftly from  i trim tab to throttle, carburator  theat to mixture, occasionally1  [dropping from the wheel  altogether, flying with my feet  [as I relaxed for the long trip  [home.  ' My route had been flight  planned down Grenville Channel, crossing the entrance to  [Douglas and into Ursula  Channel. On my way North, I  tiad dropped my wife Lucy at a  [friend's float camp in Goat  Harbour and had scheduled a  stop there to pick her up. I was  looking forward to seeing her  and our friends and rehasing  the successful trip I had made  into the Charlottes, the North  {Coast and way points.  i We had left Vancouver  airport on Monday morning  and today was Saturday. We  had promised the family we  would be home on Saturday  afternoon so we wouldn't have  time for much of a visit at Billy  boat Bay, as our friends  affectionately called the Harbour.  Time passes rather swiftly  when you are booming along  on your own, listening to  weather reports and chatter on  the radio. That North Coast is  poor radio country and the  farther I left Prince Rupert  hjehind, the weaker the transmissions became. I had heard a  report of a front passing  through the Charlottes the  night before but it was expected  to sheer off the south and miss  our part of the Coast. I was  crossing Douglas Channel  When the sun disappeared  under an overcast of black,  ugly looking klag and I began  to notice squall lines approaching from out of Squally Channel.  '. Well, it wasn't named Squally for no reason but hopefully, I  would fly out of its influence by  tie time I reached 'Billy Goat'  and have clear sailing all the  vky down the Coast to home.  How wrong I was!  Jl had landed at Lee and  Genberg's float camp a short  time later and was just tieing up  when the first squall hit. It was  a [ drencher! Of course, our  friends insisted we wait until  trie storm passed, but still  thinking it was just a passing  squall, I was intent on making  it] home. After unsuccessfully  calling for a weather report on  the camp radio, we decided to  head out and have a look and if  itlproved too tough, to return  and spend the night.  >"We were approaching Bute-  dale Harbour when I noticed a  fliat plane landing on the  water. We would be passing  him in a moment, so I decided  to;give him a call. "The aircraft  landing at Butedale. Do you  read?���Over."  jl waited a moment but  receiving no response, tried  again. "This is Cessna GYG  cafling. Do you read?" No  response, so I switched to the  B.C. Airlines frequency, hoping it was one of theirs'. It was!  "GYG this is OQQ. You're  broken up but try it again!"  There was a lot of static mixed  with the words but it was clear  enough to make out.  "OQQ, we're heading South.  How's the weather look a-  head?" The signal was fading as  he began his message, but I was  able to make out a few words;  "...left Ocean Falls in heavy  rains... blowing... Milbank  Sound...gusts to 70...Klemtu  ...O.K.?"  I thanked him for the  message and asked him to give  me a call after leaving Butedale,  hoping the altitude would  improve the transmission. In  any case, it didn't sound too  good for a little Cessna 170 to  be heading into teeming rain  and gale force winds when a  commercial Cessna 180 had  trouble bucking it. I cradled the  mike but continued to monitor  the station as I sat back to  ponder the situation.  Here we were, 350 miles up  the Coast from Vancouver,  fifty feet above the dark waters  of Princess Royal Channel and  bucking heavy rain and low  swirling cloud in a bird that  should have been tootling  around the fishing lakes and  South Coast Inlets! The  shoreline was barely visible off  our port wing as Lucy, my wife  and co-pilot, plotted our course  down the narrow channel,  ticking off the beacons from the  marine chart as we flashed by. ���  The overcast by this time was  down to 100 feet and the wisps  of cloud reaching down  from those water-laden bodies  seemed to be pressing us closer  and closer to the dark, choppy  wavelets of the Inlet.  I glanced at Lucy. Was that  frown of concentration into the  mist ahead the only emotion  she was feeling at the moment,  or was there a trace of fright  there also? I knew when she  returned my glance what the  answer would be. She shuddered without speaking, but  her eye's spoke volumes. They  were almost luminous with  pleading of "Please, let's go  back!"

Again, plenty of  offence was the order with no  less than ten goals being  scored in each of the five  games.

Pender vs. Creek  The Creek got big games  from Terry Germaine and Ted  Minor Hockey  On the slopes  one Tetrahedron skier was  unable to finish because she got  frostbite in her fingers and toes  at the 25 kilometre mark. It was  too cold to take any photographs as we were afraid our  shutters would freeze so we  have no pictures of this event.  Despite the poor crosscountry skiing conditions,  participants from our club  considered the Marathon quite  an experience and are looking  forward to entering again next  year.  No definite plans have been  made by the Club for weekend  outings in February but I  imagine we will continue to ski  on either Elphinstone ora-  round Dakota Bowl. We really  need a good snowfall as  conditions are reportedly very  icy on local mountains.  The next meeting of the Club  will be held on Thursday,  Bebruary 14, at 8:00 p.m. at  Rob Bennie's house. For  information, phone 886-2647.  There were four minor  hockey games at the Sechelt  arena on Saturday. In the  Atom Division Elphinstone Rec  beat T & T Trucking by a score  of 3 to 0.

One elector may only  vouch for one other person.  Proxy Voting  This is available to certain  individuals whose work takes  them away from home, or who  are ill or physically disabled.  Roth the elector appointing a  proxy and the elector appointed  as proxy A) must be on the same  Voters' List and B) must sign the  application tor a proxy vote so it  is important thai those wishing a  proxy vote apply before leaving.

East European  by Sheila Page  These hardy souls braved Sunday's downpour to enter  in the annual trap shoot between the Gibsons Wildlife  and the Sechelt Rod and Gun Clubs.

We must take sides in the  holocaust, Clark says, aping  Margaret Thatcher, as if there  is human reason worthy of the  description on any side.  Under the baton of this puppet, we must visit retribution  upon one or the other of the  madmen in support of our own  madman.  If there is one commonsense  move for a Canadian leader to  make today in the light of the  naked power plays of the U-  nited States, the Soviet Union  and China, it is to declare  Canada's total disengagement  from this madness and announce a national effort to live  as a nation decently and  peacefully for as long as our  courage and our principles can  last us.  But failing the courage of  our leaders today, individual  citizens have but one alternative, and that is to follow that  policy for themselves.  The article reprinted above  first appeared In the Vancouver Free Press, January  25-31,1980.  Commissioner  Continued from page one.  Regional Trade Commissioner  would be a fulltime employee  ofthe Regional District. Under  a Federal-Provincial agreement, his salary would be  subsidized 90% for the first  year, 70% the second year, 50%  the third year. In the fourth  year the Regional District  would pay the full salary but it  is expected that by that time the  commissioner's salary would  be more than met by increased  tax revenues derived from his  work in economic development.  According to the figures  presented at the Regional  Board meeting by Director  Lee, the Trade Commissioner  would only cost 48c per capita  during the first year escalating  to $2.46 per capita in the third  year.

Pesticides  A joint release from the  Ministry of Health and Ministry of the Environment  received last week announced  that testing undertaken by the  Provincial Government has  found no traces of Tordon 10K  in the Pender Harbour area.  The herbicide was applied by  B.C. Hydro in 19,78.  Tests were done on 101 water  samples from 14 sites on a  regular basis from October  1978 to November 1979 by  Health Ministry staff. No  herbicide residues were found  in any of the samples which  were analyzed in the laboratories of the Environment  Ministry.  The Tordon 10K pellets were  applied to 180 acres in August  and September of 1978 to  control brush along the B.C.  Hydro right of way.  Coast News, February 5, 1980  15.  Gibsons Day Care Centre  t Two local women, Janet  toward and Carol Eades, arc  laying the ground work for a  (Gibsons day care centre which  they hope to open around the  aid of February.  I Because licences differ de-  ending on the enrollment, a  questionnaire has been made  available through the local  merchants. This form has a  deadline of January 31st, but  people can still send them in  and they will be of great  assistance in guaging the needs  of the community.  Cheekye  At the outset ot the regular  Regional Board meeting held  on January 31, Director  tharles Lee withdrew his  support from the Regional  Board resolution calling for a  six-month moratorium on the  construction of the Cheekye-  Dunsmuir power line,  i "I withdraw my support of  {he document regarding the  ' Royal Commission," said Lee.  It is understood that Lee's  withdrawal of support stems  from his disapproval of the  leaking of one of B.C. Hydro's  inter-office memoranda.  Carol is originally from  England where she received her  training, while Janet is presently augmenting her practical  experience through an adult  education course.  The day care centre will  be primarily for working  parents who require full daytime supervision for their preschool children, but if it is prearranged, children can be  looked after one day a week if it  is on a regular basis.  The centre will be in a private  home with a large garden on  Cochrane Road. Activities will  include arts and crafts, reading,  music, indoor and outdoor  activities, and play periods.

February 5, 1980  Outward bound program  by John Hind-Smith  On Wednesday, February  6th, Mr. Ray Preece of the organisation called Outward  Bound will be the speaker at  the regular special meeting  held on the first Wednesday of  every monlh by the Gibsons  Wildlife Club. He will be  bringing slides and/or films to  illustrate his subject and I  think we can guarantee an interesting evening. As these  meetings are open to all and  admission is free, we thought  it might be a good idea to give  people an idea what this Outward Bound was all about.  The time is 7:30, by the way.  The idea of the OUtward  Bound programme started  during the Second World  War when it was realised that  the mortality among young  seamen was noticeably higher than among the older men.  I'm not too sure what form the  research took to determine  the reason for this but the outcome was that it was realised  that the young men did not  have the will to live after they  found themselves in apparently impossible situation  after their ship had been sunk.  This all happened in England and at that time a school  was established in Scotland or  Wales, I'm not sure which,  where young seamen were  sent  to really  find  out  for  themselves what they were  all about, what their potentials were, and what they were  capable of doing if put to the  ultimate test. The schools  were so successful that they  were kept going after the war  was over and now there are  similar schools in Canada (2),  in the USA, and I'm sure in  other parts of the world.  Being a former graduate  from one of these Outward  Bound courses, I can speak  from personal experience, and  I can guarantee that anyone  who goes on one of these  courses will come away with  a much more positive way of  thinking about his/her rela-  tionsips with others and his  own capabilities.  There are courses running  throughout the year at the  school in Keremeos, some  designed for young people  aged 16-18 some for students, some for teachers,  some for businessmen and women and in fact all spectrums  of society. In the summertime  the emphasis is on climbing  (rock), hiking, canoeing,  and survival, etc. The winter  courses include skiing, snow  survival, canoe and kayak instruction, and climbing rock  and ice. No one is asked to do  the impossible; the instructors are the tops; safety is of  prime consideration, and the  students are taught to feel  confident in the other person's  ability as well as his own and  many of the exercises gone  through are designed to test  the skills ofthe students working as a team.  At first glance, the courses  seem quite expenseive, but  when one considers what the  fee includes, they are quite  reasonable. All the student  has to take is a good pair of  boots extra to his ordinary  clothes. Food (which is ex-  celllent) and lodging, specialized clothing and equipment  are all supplied. No one is  turned away because he or  she cannot afford it. Bursaries  are available but in every case  the student is encouraged to  pay his own way as far as it is  possible. In my case, we had  to take wet suits, but here  again the school has an arrangement with a firm in Vancouver where these suits can  be rented at considerably  less than one would normally  have to pay.  The program is for everyone, young and old. I well  remember when I applied and  asked if age were any barrier  (I was over the half-century  at the time). The answer was,  "If you think you can do it, go  ahead and try." It's all in the  mind, in other words..Everyone who goes has to have a bit  of a medical check just to  make sure you aren't going to  keel over at the most inopportune time, but other than that,  there are no other requirements.  Hospital  Director Harry Almond  reported to the meeting of the  Sunshine Coast Regional Hospital District last Thursday,  January 31, that the Hospital  Board is considering the recommendations made recently  about St. Mary's Hospital by  Dr. Lawrence Ranta of the  B.C. Health Association.  "Some directors are anxious  to implement the recommendations," said Almond," and to  investigate how such recommended procedures are working at other hospitals."

Wildlife  corner  by Ian Corrance  Mr. Hyatt mixes the soap to the correct thickness while Mrs. Hyatt looks on.  ' To prove it's worth, Mrs. Hyatt does a quick laundry, after swishing an onion bag full of  - her home made soap around i n the water for a few seconds she has plenty of rich suds.  -The soap can be used in more modern machines by shaving it.  something similar are perfect  for this. Allow the soap to cool  overnight, then cut them to the  desired size. When cutting, it is  better to use gloves, as there is  still a lair amount of ammonia  in the mixture at this stage.  Later on it will blend in and  form a natural glycerine. Allow  the soap to sit for at least two  Lei Lake  I received a letter in the mail  last week. It is in regard to the  upcoming Lei Lake meeting, so  I'll print it in full for your  information.  Re: Notice of Public Meeting  Regarding Simon Fraser  University Research Studies  at Lei (Logging) Lake  "I wish to invite you, or any  individuals which you may  wish to invite, to a public  meeting to discuss Lei (Logging) Lake and the insecticide  research studies proposed by  Simon Fraser University. The  meeting will be held at the  Sechelt Rod and Gun Club  Hall, near Sechelt, B.C., on  Thursday, March 6, 1980.  Notice of this meeting will be  published in Sechelt newspapers. Mr. John Henigman  will chair this meeting on  behalf of the B.C. Fish and  Wildlife Branch.  The meeting will provide  information to Simon Fraser  University and to any groups or  individuals who wish to gain a  clearer understanding of the  nature of the proposed research, or who may be concerned regarding the environmental hazards of the planned  weeks before using. The longer,  you age it, the better it is.  The end result is a cheap, all  purpose soap. The can of lye is  the major expense. It costs  approximately $1.20 and that's  not bad for seven pounds of  soap. If you want, there are  perfumes on the market that  can be added to give it a scent if  used as bath soap.  The end result is a seven pound block of pure soap.  Making soap  bv Ian Corrance  i Tired of trying to decide  ifafiJKhjc,h soap is biodegradable,  ' or Which one gives you the most  ! sucis for your money? Then  ! take a page from Mrs. Hyatt's  ��� -book.   Mrs. Hyatt and her husband  ��� live at the Forestry Station in  '. " Madeira Park. Fifteen years  ��� . ago someone gave her a present  | ��� uf some locally made soap, she  liked it and has been making,  \ .sijpa herself ever since.  Before you say.'That's not  ,'" for me; I'm loo busy," read on.  �� The recipe is simple, it takes no  | more time than preparing a  J meal, and the end result is a  j   quality soap.  ! The ingredients are: one 91/;  -ounce can of lye, 2 quarts  iji*��]��ltcd grease, one cup liquid  ""ammonia, two tablespoons of  / boj-ax and a dash of liquid  j    blijcing.  ! Jou can either get the grease  ! ftphi your drippings in the  I (when, or for a few cents, pick  \ upjanimal fat at the butcher's.  '"With the latter all you have to  3*i^B> 's melt it down and it's  ���JPIdy  ,'      To make the soap, heat up  ;   the grease. This can be done by  !    placing the jars or whatever  j    you have used to collect it in, in  a 'basin of water on the stove.  I    While the grease is heating up,  '������add the lye to one quart of cold  .water. Do this outside as there  ; - will be fumes. When the lye  ;    mixes with the cold water it  heats the water up, so bring it  back to a lukewarm tempera-  'ture before using it. When the  '^tease is warm, strain it into a  basin.

"It is intended that representatives ofthe Department of  Bio-science, Simon Fraser  University, will outline their  proposed research plans at the  meeting. General topics to be  reviewed by the Simon Fraser  University people will include:  the study background, details  on the insecticide treatment of  the lake, environmental hazards and safety measures to be  taken to minimize hazard, and  the objective of the proposed  study.  "Following the Simon Fraser  University presentation, a  question and discussion period  will be held.  "The dual objective of this  meeting is to give Simon Fraser  University a chance to reassess,  if necessary, the advisability of  conducting their research study  at Lei Lake, and to provide all  individuals or groups concerned with the proposed  research a clearer understanding of what is intended so that  their endorsement or objection  to the study will be factual and  well conceived.  "Further information concerning the meeting may be  requested from: Mr. John  Henigman, Pesticide Biologist,  Habitat Protection Section,  Fish and Wildlife Branch, 400-  1019 Wharf Street, Victoria,  B.C., V8W 2Y9, or Mr. Jamie  Stephen, Conservation Officer,  Fish and Wildlife Branch.

Bird Meeting  The guest speaker at the next  Marsh Society meeting will be  Dr. Ken Hall from the West-  water Research at U.B.C. From  what I hear, he will be bringing  along a couple of films on the  deserts of the northwest. The  meeting is at 7:30 in the  Chatelech School. See you  there.  At the Pound  There are a couple of dogs up  for adoption at the Gibsons  pound. One is a puppy about  three months old; it's a female  lab and collie cross. The other  is male, about a year old and is  a terrier and sheepdog cross.  The latter one would be better  for someone with a bit of  , property. If you are interested,  call the Village Office, 886-  2274.  Odds V Ends  I've been getting a few  reports that the robins are back  again. There were none around  a few weeks ago. Also reports  of red-winged blackbirds.  Maybe it's a sign of an early  spring. I hope so. It's almost  too dark outside right now to  take decent pictures.  Last week I asked if anyone  knew what the mew gulls in  Davis Bay were feeding on.  Homer Glass (Jr.) left a  message that they're feasting  on quarter-inch-long prawns.  A cutting from the Sun says  that the Wildlife Federation are  supporting the Regional  Board's proposal that a six-  month moratorium be put on  the Cheekye-Dunsmuir Power-  line. I went up to the Regional  Board office to ask if they had  anything in writing. The first  thing the girl said was, "I'm not  sure; we've had so many letters  supporting us." Now if that  ain't a good sign, what is?  I was out in Porpoise Bay  with Tommy Joe last week to  look at his salmon rearing  tanks. While we were passing a  Coast News, February 5, 1980  boom, we scared up over 30  great blue herons; there must  be good fishing for them  around there. I was out there a  few days earlier and watched an  eagle pick up a nice-sized fish  from the same spot.  That's all. If you want to  contact me, you can at 886-  2622/886-7817 or 886-9151,  Ta.

Take A Long, Objective Look  There's much more to buying a home than saying, "I like that house, let's buy it."  Take a long, objective look at yourself, your family, your lifestyle and your likes and  dislikes before you get carried away with the style of a house.  Finding a balance between your way of life and the house you want to live your life in  is important. Personal tastes, favourite activities and the abilities of everyone in your  family go to make up its unique lifestyle, and these priorities, along with your ability to  pay for them, should be the main factors in determining what, where and when you  buy a home.  If you are a man who prefers to spend your weekends on the golf course, or in a  comfortable chair watching your favourite sport on television rather than mowing  lawns, tending a garden and pruning shrubs, it would be wise to think twice about a  home with a yard big enough for a soccer field.  If you are a mother with three rambunctious youngsters under school age and a  large shaggy dog, you should re-consider that compact condominium with 2  bedrooms and white broadloom carpets.  You may thing you won't mind that one-hour drive from a rural retreat to your mid-  town office, but after you've breasted the traffic morning and night through sun,  snow, sleet and rain for a few months, will it still look that attractive?  Students in sales seminars sponsored by the Real Estate Board of Greater  Vancouver are told that sociologists consider (1) careers, (2) alcoholism and (3) extra  marital sex as the three greatest contributors to marriage breakdown. Real Estate  professionals add one other factor to that list: Homes that do not fit the lifestyle of  their inhabitants.  That is why any sales person or agent who is helping you find a home will ask what  may seem to be impertinent or personal questions about your way of life. He knows  that the house a purchaser buys may have more of an effect on his personal life than  he bargained for. He knows that men who don't like the job of being weekend Mr. Fix-  Its or women who really don't enjoy housekeeping should shy away from large older  style homes. Your agent may even ask how you get along with your in-laws, because if  you are a working couple who enjoy the privilege of in-law baby sitting services, you  shouldn't move miles across town from this convenience.  The character of the neighbourhood should be matched to the characteristics of  your family. It wouldn't seem logical for a family with six school age hockey-playing  youngsters to move into a basically retired-resident neighbourhood miles from the ice  rink, any more than it would seem prudent for an elderly couple to buy a townhouse in  a family oriented development.  Remember that moving can be expensive and troublesome if you make the wrong  choice in the purchase of your home, so take that long, objective look first, and let  your sales representative know about your hobbies, habits, and priorities so he can  give you the best advice, and find you the house of your dreams as well as the house  for your lifestyle.
