Inspect Community College  Paetkau and Hodgins visit North Island  by Maryanne West  Dr. Eric Paetkau, and Trustee Brian Hodgins, the Sunshine  Coast's representatives on the Capilano College Board visited the  North Island College in Courtenay recently to see if they could  glean any ideas useful for this district.  North Island College serves northern Vancouver Island's  remote communities from Port Alberni and Gold River to  Campbell River, Alert Bay and Port Hardy and others. They too  have to serve students scattered over great distances. As il is  mostly impractical to bring students to a central campus���the  small centre in Campbell River was deserted when they were  there���the College has invested in two mobile study campers and  a boat, by which the tutors can get to the students.  Reporting to the School Board, Trustee Hodgins said he felt  strongly that their system of correspondence courses, tapes and  cable TV with no seminars or personal contact with lecturers or  fellow students is not for us.  He hoped we would be able to combine correspondence courses  from the Open Learning Institute in Richmond, with courses  given in communities by Capilano College and when it comes  onstream with McGeer's satellite delivered system called  Knowledge Network of the West.  Dr. Paetkau is presently working with a local committee to  assess the needs of the Sunshine Coast, the usefulness of a central  campus, and any other innovative and practical ideas we can come  up with which will make the learning experience rewarding and  available tc all those who would like to participate���either in  upgrading qualifications for careers or for enlightenment and  enhancing one's pleasure in life.  The Open Learning Institute already makes available  background material for use with educational programming on  P.B.S. Channel 9, for such specials as Carl Sagan's Cosmos series.

Steamboat Rock a heritage reserve  Log salvage notice clarified  An RCMP press release published in last week's Coast News  stated that the Gibsons detachment requests log salvagers to  refrain from tying up or booming logs at Steamboat Rock in  Howe Sound. The release further stated that the area, designated  Cotton Grounds Four and Five is within Whonnock Industries  lease area.  Since June of 1977 Steamboat Rock has been known as  "Mariners' Rest", a heritage reserve set aside for the last rites of  seamen. (See Capt. W.Y. Higgs' letter on Page Three).  Bernie Kasper, Log Supply Inspector for Whonnock Industries  told the Coast News that the request referred to the water lease  areas immediately behind Mariners' Rest. Though Whonnock  Industries stores boomed logs in the area, it does so by  arrangement with Seaspan, the company which actually holds the  leases, Kasper said.  "We don't want to imply that we have any control over  Steamboat Rock, now known as Mariners' Rest," Kasper said.  Log Salvage Regulations prohibit log salvagers from entering  water lease areas where logs arc boomed and stored.  Howe Sound under siege  by John Moore  A near capacity crowd of  almost 200 people filled a small  auditorium at the West Vancouver Recreation Centre  Wednesday night to attend the  first general meeting of the  Save Howe Sound Society and  to unanimously pass two  resolutions aimed at the preservation of the Sound for recreational use by future generations.  The first resolution, addressed to Provincial Environment  Minister Stephen Rogers,  registers the Society's strong  objection to any further industrial expansion in the Sound  and particularly makes reference to the establishment of  liquid natural gas tanker-  loading facilities at Britannia  Beach, the possibility of an  open pit copper-molybdenum  mine on Gambier Island, and  the expansion of deep-sea port  facilities in the Squamish  estuary.  The second resolution, addressed to a number of Pro  vincial and Federal Ministries,  requests that the Howe Sound  area be declared an area  primarily used for recreation  and that the strictest pollution  control measures be exercised  to govern existing industry in  Howe Sound.  The resolutions arose out of  several presentations, the first  by Squamish Nature Centre  biologist Jorma Jyrkkanen,  who ran a short National Film  Board feature entitled "Estuary" which illustrated the  vital   role   played   by   river  Last Thursday night the regional board received the set of  proposed guidelines for Water Leases and Licences of Occupation  drawn up by Water Lease Committee Chairman Joe Harrison and  Area B Alternate Director Homer Glass.  The guidelines are the result of meetings with Lands Branch  Regional Manager Larry Sorken and interested members of the  public and written submissions from the public to the committee.  The guidelines recommend that the highest priority be given to  public use of the foreshore, whether residential or commercial and  point out that waterfront access for the fishing industry, the  logging industry and the tourist industry is an economic necessity  and must be guaranteed.  . The guidelines state that "larger scale dense private moorage in  residential areas is undesirable" and recommend that the use of  the public foreshore for private use be restricted to minor  inoffensive floats in areas of lower population density.  The guidelines further recommend that careful consideration  be given to the length of time the beach or water has been used by  the public and in what manner, whether or not public access to or  along the beach will be impeded, and how the issuance of a lease or  licence will affect the surrounding community, particularly  insofar as it may set a precedent.  Details of the guidelines include:  1. No private foreshore water leases should be granted in front  of residentially zoned upland parcels.  2. Commercial foreshore leases may be granted in front of  commercially zoned upland parcels and unoccupied crown  foreshore, subject to an examination of the merits of each  individual application.  3. Shellfish leases may be granted to bona fide shellfish  producers subject to a performance clause.  4. The Regional District should establish a headline in each area  where leases are issued. No leases will be allowed beyond the  headline boundary.  5. All leases and licences of occupation issued will require  building permits (including site locations) for all structures, floats,  ramps and works constructed on foreshore leases.  i 6. The Regional District will consider licences of occupationfor  bona fide commercial fishermen, boom boats, log salvors, charter  vessels in front of residentially zoned upland parcels for the  anchoring of floats and vessels associated in these traditional  occupations.  7. Licences of occupation for a single modest float, and ramp  for private moorage (in a limited area used for pilings and floats  only) may be issued in front of residentially zoned upland parcels,  wed as a single family residence. Thc siting and size of the float  will be restricted and prescribed by the licence". No foreshore leases  for the commercial storage of boats using covered boat houses will  be granted. The Regional District endorses the concept of dryland  winter storage for recreational vessels.  8. Moorage and anchorage for larger recreational vessels  should be in commercial or public facilities.  For UIC  Fishermen facing  stiffer requirements  by Don Lev an  Fishermen residing on the Sunshine Coast and on the lower  mainland must have 14 insurable weeks of employment to qualify  for UIC benefits this year as opposed to 12 last year at this time.  Abo affected by these changes are Vancouver Island fishermen  who are now required to have 10 insurable weeks in order to  qualify.  This follows the implementation of a new system by the  government based on regional levels of unemployment.  Due to poor catches and low prices in this year's salmon season,  the United fishermen and Allied Workers Union is appealing to  the government for a relaxing of the new eligibility rules.  UFAWU organizer Dennis Brown told the Coast News "The  union's position is that the basic eligibility requirements for  fishermen should be reduced to 8 weeks if we take into account the  current state of the industry. For some of the fishermen, it's an  impossibility to get 14 insurable weeks during the season as it  stands."  As an example of the kind of catch 22 that some fishermen have  to contend with, UFAWU Welfare director Bert Ogden cited the  case of a member whi se total weeks of insurable employment last  year added to 13, one short of the required 14 for his area. This  year, a fisherman may also be required to produce a minimum of  20 insurable weeks if he is a new entrant or a re-entrant to the  workforce. The fisherman in the example above had 19 insurable  weeks this year so he was unable to collect insurance again.  On the positive side, the S87 a week minimum earnings required  to qualify has been reduced to $63 effective January I, 1981.  Ogden said there is a committee being formed within the union  to deal directly with UIC officials on behalf of fishermen. He  added that in the meantime, fishermen should get in touch with  their MP and let their feelings be known with regard to easing  other eligibility requirements.  9. No leases should be granted:  (a) In areas designed as anchorages:  (b) On beaches or waterways used by the public:  10. No variation ofthe natural bottom contours bydredging or  filling or construction of breakwaters, will be allowed without a  permit which should stipulate the source of fill, or the destination  of the dredged material. p|nM |Urn to page 24  Elphi students get  work experience  by Raymond Dow and Howard Honeybunn  During the week of November 24 -30, half of the Grade 10  students at Elphinstone Secondary enrolled in a local work  experience program, (the other half will be enrolled next semester)  to gain experience and knowledge of an occupation.  The students were introduced to a wide variety of occupations,  working at. such places as Gibsons Clinic Pharmacy, Kingo  Diesel, Digitronics Systems Ltd. and the Coast News.  Generally, most of the students enjoyed this program and the  week off school that went with it. Most still want to enter the field  they chose, but a few found their choice was unsuitable to them.  In a number of interviews with the students, we found that the  employees of the companies and businesses were most helpful in  making this program a worthwhile experience.  A special thanks to Bill Forst, who set up the program. Also we  personally would like to thank the Coast News for their  hospitality and helpfulness in our week with them.  estuaries in the food chain and  life cycle of Pacific fish and  migrating wildfowl.  "Without the estuaries, we  stand to lose three species of  Pacific salmon," Jyrkkanen  said, pointing out that plans to  develop an industrial park and  an expanded 9-berth ship  facility in the estuary will  destroy the integrity ofthe tidal  marshes as a habitat for young  salmon and wide range of  wildfowl that includes rare bald  eagles and Trumpeter swans.

The Pender Harbour Settlement Plan,  now in its fifth draft, will be discussed at a public meeting  held at 2 pm. Sunday, December 7 in the Pender Harbour  Community Hall.  Pender Harbour (Area A) Director Joe Harrison has  requested that residents of the Pender Harbour area who  wish to familiarize themselves with the plan or offer  suggestions make special efforts to attend the meeting.  Transit study approved  Directors of the Sunshine Coast Regional District at last  Thursday night's meeting recommended that funds for an  Urban Transit Authority study into the feasibility of a  public transportation system for the Sunshine Coast be  included in the budget for the coming year.  The Phase 1 study will cost the board approximately  $3,000 and will include a breakdown of transit problems and  possibilities in this area, cost projections and possible  subsidies. The UTA representatives have indicated that the  study could begin early in the new year.  Avalon picketed briefly  Avalon log sorting facilities were picketed for a short time  last Tuesday morning. The pickets were set up as a result of  disagreement between workers and management at Twin  Creeks.  IWA representative Ed Gill told the Coast News the  problem originated the previous Sunday over work  performed by a foreman.  Following a study session, workers reported to a union  committee which in turn recommended they go back to  work. When they returned and found no work they assumed  they'd been locked out and decided to picket at Avalon.  A meeting between all parties concerned hasalready been  held and another one is scheduled for this week.  Rivtow officials declined to comment on the situation.  Who, me?

Near the end of the week Captain  Higgs appeared in our office with a letter  which appears on Page Three and official  charts which seem to show that Steam  boat Rock is not within anyone's foreshore lease.  The disagreements between local individual log salvors and large companies  have been many and in general the laws  and the government seem determined  to side with the big companies.  In this case, however, one is surprised  that the RCMP at the request of Whonnock Industries should be issuing notices  without checking the facts.  Economic straws  Up again go the interest rates as the  bankers and economists tell us that  they are going to solve the problem of  inflation by bringing under control the  supply of money. It is the latest economic  orthodoxy, the latest mumbo jumbo by  which the witch doctors who serve the  wealthy seek to justify taking ever more  from the pockets ofthe less wealthy.  It is called monetarism, this particular  hocus pocus. Its high priest is one Milton  Friedman and its most prominent convert  is the Iron Maiden herself, Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher.  Even conservatives acknowledge that  the control of the money supply is  strong medicine. It is predicated on increasing numbers of people being  forced out of work at the same time as  inflation soars in what we are told is the  short term.  Britain has been the crucible in which  Friedman's confident and well-fed  theories about the need for other people  to suffer have been put to.the test. Even  Thatcher's obsequious backbenchers are  beginning to rebel as the British economy, even in its post-North Sea oil phase,  lurches and groans in ever deeper trouble  under the harsh medicine of monetarism.  We get the feeling that no one but  Friedman really feels that boosting  the interest rates will solve the long-term  problem. Is it possible that Friedman js  but a confident crank whose confidence  is enough in a time of indecision for the  confused to follow him? There is a sense  of desperation in the air in the circles of  power, of clutching at economic straws.  fe  ...from the files of the COAST NEWS  FIVE YEARS AGO  Pensioners Jim Holt and Vic Eckstein accept a cheque for $9,800 from  Don Lockstead on behalf of the  provincial government. The cheque  represents the last of the province's  contribution tor the new hall.  Under the editorial heading of "A  nature lesson" Adolph Schmidt,  United States Ambassador to Canada,  is quoted in the Coast News as follows:  "I hope it will not be taken amiss if I  remind you that my country was also  blessed with areas of great beauty and  an abundance of natural resources.  But in our eagerness...to make our fast  dollar while the getting was good we  have in many ways been profligate in  our misuse of these irreplaceable  resources. I hope your magnificent  land of British Columbia by forward  planning, comprehensive and adequate zoning-and its rigid enforcement  can profit from some of our mistakes."  Residents of the Sunshine Coast  were awakened in their beds early  Sunday morning when two earth  tremors shook the area.  Roland Hawes will be the principal of  the yet to be built Chatelech Junior  Secondary School. Superintendent  John Denley said Hawes had been  chosen from eight excellent candidates.  TEN YEARS AGO  Sechelt Indian Band at a meeting  last week unanimously approved the  leasing ot 72 acres of land for the  construction ot an $11,000,000 gravel  plant. Regional Board Chairman Cliff  Gilker terminated a hearing with  those in opposition to the Sechelt  proposed gravel plant by saying the  matter would be referred to a committee of the board.

FIFTEEN YEARS AGO  Mrs. Christine Johnson is re-elected  for a sixth term as chairman of  Sechelt's municipal council.  Incorporation papers have been  received by the Sunshine Coast Golf  and Country Club, according to  secretary Mrs. Wilma Morrison.  TWENTY YEARS AGO  Building ofthe proposed elementary  school at Langdale has become an  urgent problem, according to members of the school board. Urgency is  evidenced by the fact that a class in  Gibsons Elementary School is presently being held in the Anglican  Parish Hall across the road.  Landowners on the Sunshine Coast  between Egmont and Port Mellon will  be asked to vote on December 12 to  approve the formation of a Hospital  Improvement District.  TWENTY-FIVE YEARS AGO  The Coast News gives a recipe for  staying young on Its front page. "Be  limber, loving, and a little looney". The  advice was given by a speaker at  Gibsons Kiwanis Club.  A meeting chaired by the school  superintendent of Powell River and  this district, Mr. R. Thorsteinsen, said  that the pressing need from Bowen  Island to Egmont was for more  classroom space. Particularly vocal  were representatives from Pender  Harbour and Egmont who said that  nothing short of a high school would  solve their problem.  An experiment is underway at  Gibsons Public Library where on  Saturday mornings stories are read to  younger children. Forty-four children  attended the most recent session.  A movement is afoot in local schools  to provide music programs.  A recent meeting of representatives  of Canada, the United States, and  Japan to discuss salmon stocks  revealed that all three countries were  aware of the need for avoiding over-  exploitation.  THIRTY YEARS/tGO  Liberal MP James Sinclair offers to  have federal advertising dropped from  the Coast News. The suggestion, made  in a letter written by Sinclair to reply to  a critical editorial, draws a stinging  editorial reply from the publisher of the  paper.  THIRTY-FIVE YEARS AGO  Seventy-five people from all parts of  the Sunshine Coast met in Roberts  Creek to discuss what could be done  about local road conditions.  Sechelt Civil Defence Association is  disbanded after years of being on the  alert for enemy action.  Swanson Bay, about 1916. The bay had been named in 1844 by Captain Dodd of  the famous Hudsons' Bay paddlewheeler BEAVER to commemorate Captain John  Swanson, who had already taken the Company's schooner CADBORO through  these waters, upcoast from Bella Coola. By the 1890's, fish canneries were being  built along the Pacific Northwest coast, and timber operations were under way as  far north as Beaver Cove and Port Neville. During the first decade of the twentieth  century, mines were being opened, and pulp and paper mills were producing or  being built at Port Mellon, Powell River, Ocean Falls, and Swanson Bay. Guy  Fisher while still a lad in 1919 travelled north from Cower Point to put in a stint at  this Whalen Pulp and Paper plant, and brought away this momento. Sawmill and  pulp mill were to the right beyond this view, which shows the townsite, with two  masts typical of the wireless telegraph installations of that time. Photo courtesy  Guy Fisher collection and Elphinstone Pioneer Museum.  L.R. Peterson  If there is one feeling shared  by a great many people of  divergent views here and  elsewhere it is that a lot of the  key decisions affecting our lives  are made by powerful interests  elsewhere who pay little attention to the preferences of the  ordinary citizen.  In our case locally,, the  example which springs to mind  is B.C. Hydro. Many of us are  veterans of many meetings with  B.C. Hydro and it is not  uncommon to hear it said, that,  do what we will, nothing stops  B.C. Hydro. It is true that  Hydro and its officials are past  masters at circumventing local  opinion where that opinion  runs counter to the Power  Corporation's grandiose  schemes.  Last week in Sechelt there  was a lady in town who is a  veteran of successful confrontations with powerful  superstructures and who has  written a book to help ordinary  citizens increase their chances  of effective organization.  The book is called Yes We  Can, subtitled How to Organize Citizen Action. Its  author is Elizabeth Amer, the  managing editor of the Canadian Forum magazine.  Amer won her spurs in  organizing citizen groups when  she was one of many battling to  preserve the picturesque islands in Toronto Harbour  from the ravages of what is  loosely described as development.  What Amer learned during  that successful struggle she now  shares with us in Yes We Can.  In conversations at The  Bookstore in Sechelt last week  the pleasant-faced Ms. Amer  held her niece, who lives  locally, on her knee as she  discussed the need for organization and the nature of  power. The image was as far  from that of a militant troublemaker as could be imagined. In  quietly even tones she spoke of  the increasing domination of  multi-national corporations  and pointed out that there were  minimal resources made  available for the public to  :onfront these giants.  "There isn't much to be  gained by losing," said Amer.  She recommended limited  objectives and said that the  organization when it came  would be 'built on wins'.  "If a citizen action group is  going to be successful," she  said, "its members should be  having more fun than anyone  else around. The action volunteers must be enjoying themselves."  Amer told the interested  group in the back room of The  Musings  John Burnside  Slings & Arrows >*  George Matthews  ?f  Surely the most fascinating  species for the amateur  sociologist to observe is  Candidates electus, the newly  elected politician. Once in  office, the creature tends to  become tedious and predictable but in the early stages of  development, in that period  between being elected and  taking office, the habits and  behaviour of this pretentious  primate are amusing to  behold.  The best current example  of the stumblings and floun-  derings of a newly elected  politician is Vancouver's  Mayor-elect, Michael Har-  court. You would think that  after running for six months in  a tough, hard-fought campaign, the candidate, successful or not, would disappear to some Caribbean  island to recover and prepare  for the years ahead. Not Mr.  Harcourt. He seems to have  decided to take over prematurely and as a result has  run into some interesting  leadership problems.  His first, and perhaps most  difficult problem is his schizophrenic image. Who is the real  Michael Harcourt? Is he the  simple man of the people who  frets about the urban poor,  adequate housing, transportation and the frivolousness  of  the   convention   centre?  Or, is he the T.V. man in the  three piece, blue pin-stripe  with the Drapeauesque hairline who breakfasts with  Socreds and travels widely to  sightsee in distant villages? In  order to win the election last  Dr. William Bridge listens carefully to Elizabeth Amer in Sechelt month, Mayor Mike was  last week. advised to put the lid on his  Bookstore that most people in  citizen groups tend to think in  details but that there had to be  someone in charge of the  overall strategy. "You do what  you can with what you have.  Usually there will be some kind  of opening that you can take  advantage of", she said.  Amer listed as the major  concerns which will probably  confront citizen action groups  as being problems concerning  the environment. "You just  can't get away from it," she  said. Disposal of nuclear  wastes and other toxic wastes  Amer gave as prime causes for  concern. She said that because  of acid rain there was no  swimming anywhere in  Southern Ontario but that  there were compelling local  issues everywhere which local  groups should address.  "When we were battling to  preserve the islands in Toronto  Harbour," said Amer, "we were  referred to as the 'slick island  lobby'. Our reply to that was  that we were interested in  politics and in power in the  same way as someone who was  about to be stabbed was  interested in knives."  Amer's handbook for the  organization of citizen action  groups is available at The  Bookstore in Sechelt and  should be soon in other local  book stores. It is not a polemic.  It is not ideological. It is a  clearly written handbook of  practical examples and steps  designed to lead to practical,  effective and successful action.  Every chapter has references of  successful actions taken and  further resources to be tapped  along the organizational way.  There is little in the foreseeable future to lead one to  complacency. The assaults  being made or planned on the  delicate envelope of the environment threaten the very  survival of our species. Yes We  Can is a handbook that we all  may already need.  Sonnet 73  That time of year thou mays! in me behold  When yellow leaves, or none, or Jew, do hang  Upon those boughs which shake against the cold,  Bare ruined choirs, where late the sweet birds sang.  In me thou see'st the twilight of such day  As after surset fadeth in the west,  Which by and by black night doth take away,  Death's second self that seals up all in rest.  In me thou see'st the glowing of such fire,  That on the ashes of his youth doth He,  As the death-bed, whereon it must expire  Consumed with that which it was nourished by.  This thou perceiv'st, which makes thy love more strong  To love that well, which thou must leave ere long.  William Shakespeare  socialistic image. He succeeded so well that in the last  few weeks he seems to have  forgotten where he came  from.  Harcourt's second problem  is one he is going to have to  come to grips with quickly.  He jumped, at precisely the  wrong moment, into the  Transpo 86 dilemma. Transpo  86 has been seeded and  managed to the stage of inexorability and inevitability.  It is, without question, a  project which will not do Vancouver any harm. The newly  elected Mayor made it an  issue. He suggested that  international exhibitions and  convention centres were not  what the city needed right  now, that the more people-  oriented programs like urban  renewal and low-cost housing  were the more important  issues.  The newly elected candidate  often errs on the side of  arrogance. As good a human  being as the Mayor-elect is,  he made the mistake of  believing that he was elected  on the issues he promoted.  The fact is that the issues  had nothing to do with his  being elected. The people of  Vancouver were tired of  polyester platitudes, Grecian  formula phoniness and the  petulant trivialities of Jack  Volrich.  Had the new Mayor slid off  into the sunny climes and  allowed his lame-duck predecessor to complete his term,  Mr. Harcourt would have been  fresh rested and in a position  to concede the fact that both  Transp 86 and the Convention  Centre were a fait accompli.  Unfortunately he grabbed the  reins of office too quickly  and was forced to waffle.  Now he is going to have to dig  in and take charge of leading  the city to a successful Transpo 86 and a long needed transit system. He has been told,  in the straightest possible language, that unless the international exhibition takes  place, the light rapid transit  system he wants will not  happen.  Mike Harcourt, the thoughtful socialist, is now Mayor  Harcourt, the occupant of an  office traditionally filled by  right-wing businessmen. His  two months of pretendership,  which ought to have been  spent in the Bahamas, have so  far been spent in a rush to the  right. Hopefully, by January,  when he will be the real  Mayor, he will have found out  who he is and will, like Mr.  Drapeau, take over and  become finally tedious and  predictable.

Letters to the Editor  Steamboat Rock situation clarified  Editor:  Re: Steamboat Rock, Thorn-  borough Channel, Howe  Sound. Now known as Mariners' Rest.  In your edition of November  25/80 there is a small article  saying that there is a disagreement about the log  salvager's use of Steamboat  Rock and those who say  they have a lease on this area.  Because this Rock was and  never had been included in  any water lease the Government of B.C. set the Rock  aside in June, 1977, under  Heritage Reserve as a permanent location adjacent to  which the last rites of Seamen  and Families may be held  from the decks of vessels.  As part of this arrangement  it was specifically agreed that  no one would land on the Rock  from June, 1977, onward in  an endeavour to preserve the  wild flowers and shrubs and  the natural beauty of Steamboat Rock.  W.Y. Higgs is co-ordinator  between the interested Government offices, the Canadian Merchant Service Guild,  all Sailors' Unions and the  Company of Master Mariners  of Canada in establishing this  reserve.  The Rock, Mariners' Rest,  was  dedicated  on   Sunday,  RCMP thanked  Editor:  I want to express my sincere  appreciation to Officers Jack-  lim and Prest of the Sechelt  RCMP detachment for the  assistance given to me when  my logging truck broke down,  in the middle of Highway 101,  on Friday, November 29.  Without the assistance of  these two men there would  have been a totally uncontrollable traffic problem and  possibly a serious accident.  I also want to thank Bruce and  Neil from T&T Welding and  J. Malyea Trucking for their  instant response to my situation with a portable welding  truck and another logging  truck. Without your prompt  assistance this problem would  have been for more severe.  Thank you all very much.  Peter Percheson  August 26th, 1978, by The  Reverend J.D. Parker, Senior  Chaplain to The Mission To  Seamen at a ceremony which  deeded The "Mariners' Rest"  as an official burial ground for  seafarers and their relatives.  The ashes of many have been  deposited here and burial  services held over the past  years. Because of this, Mariners' Rest, formerly Steamboat  Rock, should be held in  respect. Relatives of those  whose last rites have been  held adjacent to the Rock may  have the names of their  departed permanently inscribed in a book kept at the  premises of the Company of  Master Mariners of Canada,  60 North Dunlevy Ave.,  Vancouver, B.C., attention of  Captain Allan Cabot. A book  will be kept in a suitable local  place such as the Village Hall  at Gibsons, for extra permanence.  W.Y. Higgs  Tasteless,  Mr.C.

They've bombed the track-  loader twice and it stands  almost sheepishly in a charmed-circle of charred, drenched  ground, its blackened beak of a  boom dripping salty tears.  They are using straight sea-  water with no chemical additives, filling their tanks right  out of the inlet. We start  unloading the pumps, coils of  hose and other equipment, in  what seems like no time at all,  the bird-dog plane scurries  through again with the freshly-  loaded bomber lumbering  behind il. The tanks discharge;  a great shimmering lump falls  solid through the air and  lambastes the machine one  more time in a rainbow explosion. The lumbering shadow  goes over us; a thin spray wets  us. We stand fascinated like  kids watching a movie.  We hear the sound of ano-  Pages from a Life-Log  Peter Trower  ther approaching vehicle. It's  Black with Grimley, the area-  supervisor, a large fleshy-faced  man with rather overbearing  tendencies. His pomposity has  been punctured on this occasion. They're both soaked to  the skin. "Jesus, you guys look  like a couple of drowned rats!"  laughs Casey. "What the hell  happenedT'  "Got his by the backwash of  that last drop" says Black,  obviously embarrassed by our  amused grins. "Damn near  knocked us off the road!"  Grimley is not taking this  affront to his dignity in good  grace. He looks daggers at us.  "Okay, you guys" he blusters,  "let's get those bloody pumps  working! We've got to stop this  bastard!" Actually, his concern  is understandable.

If the Are takes  off down there, thirty year's  logging might go up in smoke.  The only immediate source  of water is a shallow slough  about two-hundred feet wide.  The pumps are set up there and  the hoses unreeled. The fire,  although snuffed-out at the  source, is crackling across the  slash into the unyarded timber.  The cat clatters up and begins  to cut a firebreak to the north.  Fortunately, there is little wind  to fan the flames and it soon  becomes certain that we'll be  able to contain the fire. There's  not a great deal we can do  beyond hosing down the edges  and letting it burn itself out on  that several-acre island. By  nightfall, when several men  who've been held back for  firewatch-duty arrive, the crisis  is past. The providential water-  bomber has saved the day.  The worst part of fire-  fighting is the aftermath.  Forestry regulations require  that the fire be absolutely out.  This involves several days of  very grubby work, roaming the  ash-desert with back-packs,  mattocks and axes to snuff out  the last stubborn coals in the  roots ofthe blackened stumps.  We commence this chore the  following day when most ofthe  flames have subsided, wandering the wasteland like miners  searching for fiery gold. "Hell  with this noise!" says Cliff  halfway through the third day,  "that bitch is about as 'out' as  she's going to get!" Grimley's  gone back to town and Black  isn't around. We sneak off into  the unburned ground, find a  shady spot among some bushes  and stretch out there to smoke  and shoot the breeze. Not far  away, behind a log, nonchalant  Cecil Jimmy the chaser snores  noisily.  Apart from superficial scorching and a few burned wires,  the trackloader has emerged  unscathed from its baptism of  fire. We abandon the ruined  knoll-setting and trundle a-  cross to the far side of the  plateau. Here where the road  ends at the great canyon's edge,  lie the remaining settings. Most  of the timber is on the lower  side but there is some wood on  the upper side also. We decide  to get this out first. The logs lie  scattered over the gently-rising  hill in a sea of blue-huckleberry  bushes. They peter out six-  hundred feet back in a boggy  parkland of deer-grass and  stunted scrub-fir. It'd be child's  play for a steel-tower but with  our low-slung machine, it's a  ground-lead business all the  way. Without lift, the logs nose  in constantly behind stumps  and boulders. We're forced to  spend half our time fighting  hangups.  Justin quits a couple of days  after we get set-up. He claims  he's found a better job but we  figure he's got a guilty conscience. While there's no way to  prove who started the fire, he's  certainly the prime suspect. We  inherit a new engineer called  Bill Duckworth. He's another  oldtimer, a short nervous man  in his sixties. "Hell, boys, 1 ran  steampot down in that goddam  McNair valley back in the  thirties." It's soon apparent he  figures he's still punching that  steam-donkey.  He starts out reasonably  enough but he doesn't stay that  way for long. Maybe it's the  constant barrage of whistles  we're obliged to blow as we  fight those obstinate turns in.  Whatever the reason, he begins  opening the throttle wider and  wider till the logs are literally  flying down the slope. Half of  them are coming out of the  chokers or smashing to bits. It's  a losing proposition.  Under other circumstances,  Duckworth's wild behavior  might be merely aggravating.  With Cliff along, it becomes  instead, hysterically funny.  "Look at the crazy old bugger  got" he hoots as yet another  turn takes off like a rocket.  "He's real fullbore! Fullbore  Bill from over the hill! Ha! Ha!  Ha!"  "Fullbore Bill! Omigod!" I  howl. I have ludicrous visions  of small, bespectacled Duckworth, bug-eyed and frothing  at the mouth as he manhandles  the controls. Each time he goes  galloping ahead, we practically  collapse among the bushes in  spasms of helpless laughter.  Thus Duckworth acquires, his  nickname. We never refer to  him as anything else from here  on in. Eventually however, it  gets a bit beyond a joke and we  have to ask him to take it easier.  He grumbles and mutters but  contrives to exercise a bit more  restraint. Every so often,  however, he forgets himself and  the logs start leaping in to our  delighted guffaws. "Jesus!  Fullbore's at it again!"

Near the top, a  woman in silhouette stands,  left hand on hip, wearing  jackboots, a cat-o-nine tails  dangling from her gloved right  hand   What's this? Your reviewer  languishing in literature's  lowest and murkiest depths?  Well, not quite. It's not at all  unusual for "underground"  novels, some of which have  survived to become classics  of English Literature, to be  issued between lurid covers in  the hope of increasing sales.  What those who buy such  books in the hopes of having  their prurient interest appealed to think of this practice  is anybody's guess, but it  would certainly explain why so  many books like Stelphen  Schneck's The Nlghtclerk find  their way into the bins of  second hand bookstores.  Don't be deceived; The  Night Clerk is not for the faint  of heart, but not for the  reasons suggested by the  cover. Published by Grove  Press in 1965 and issued by  the same company in paperback the following year, it is  unlikely that any other publisher would have touched it  with the proverbial pole.  The Nlghtclerk reads like it  was written over the weekend  on a marathon jag by Ken  Kesey and William Burroughs. It's bizarre, unusual  and, in many places, a stunning piece of writing. I doubt  if it will ever make the English  Lit. curriculum, (though  Naked Lunch now makes it  into American Lit. courses)  but there's no reason why it  shouldn't.  Fantastic and satirical, the  opening chapters introduce  J. Spenser Blight, the Night-  clerk, six hundred pounds of  pure malevolence, guardian  of the lobby of the Travelers  Hotel, a shabby shot-to-hell  hostelry in an atrophying  corner of San Francisco's  downtown.  Blight is "the Keeper of the  Booke of Aliases, Booke of  the Furtive 5 & 10 Dollar  Lovers, Booke of the Total  Losers. Booke of those who  register to do that to which  they do not wish to sign their  names." Blight is a monster  who hasn't slept more than a  wink in ten years; Custodian  of the Keys, a parody of St.  Peter, the implacable desk-  man at the entrance of Hades.  The Travelers, once, just for  a season possibly, a fashionable hotel, has slipped so far  off the beaten track that it  now occupies an indefinite  location somewhere on the  fringes of the Netherworld.  He who signs the register,  under an assumed name of  course,    writes    in    water,  Book Look  by Murrie Redman  Teresa of Calcutta by Robert Serrou, November 1980, $13.50  paper, $21.00 hardcover, McGraw-Hill Ryerson.  Teresa of Calcutta is called a "living saint". Her order of  Missionaries of Charity, founded by herself, tends the needs ofthe  poor, the abandoned and sick. Her order is worldwide. She is one  of the world's mosl decorated women for her work. But she wears  a simple cotton sari, no stockings and lives the life of an ascetic.  This pictorial biography shows her about her mission in India.  The pictures are hard to look at with Western eyes. Most of us  would rather pretend that there is not such abject proverty and  suffering in the world. Mother Teresa's deeply lined face with its  brilliantly shining eyes epitomizes love. Her worn hands holding  ���the head of anew born child rescued from a garbage disposal area  are tender expressions of the deepest caring.  Whether or not one is Christian, there can be only admiration  for someone who dedicates, her life to helping others. Teresa's  philosophy even shorn of its religious nature gives a message to all  readers. She says that there is enough food for everyone in the  world. She says that it is a lie to say you love God when you do not  love even your neighbour whom you can see and touch.  Mother Teresa, born to a well off family, took a position as  teaching sister in a Calcutta school for rich children in 1931. In  1948 she left the comfortable residence to live in the streets with  the poor. She taught the children by scratching lessons on a patch  of dry dirt. Her spirit and energy soon had others donning the  simple sari in blue and pinned with a small cross on the left  shoulder. It seemed there were other women equally concerned  and willing to devote themselves to tending the lepers and the cast  off children.  Though she insists on strict regimens of self-discipline, there is  no one too lowly to be turned away. The hundreds who die on the  streets of Calcutta are sought out and carried to a shelter to die in  peace and dignity. There are hospitals for unwanted children who  are soon adopted out or who go to orphanages.  For her great work Mother Teresa has received dozens of  awards, gifts and honorary degrees which she accepts with good  humour and immediately turns into cash to support her missions.  Though she is tiny, her eyes burn with energy, lt is certain that  when a situation calls for firmness, she is strong.  The book Teresa of Calcutta is inspiring for anyone who merely  thumbs through the pages. Inside is some very dramatic  photography. The drama is real. The text allows the browser to  gain a little information in captions or choose to read a full  i ccount about the little woman Malcolm Muggeridge describes as  keeping "the light shining in a dark and confused time".  First Countryside Concert  Coast News, December 2, 1980  receives a key to the Twilight  Zone, and gambles with his  own reality. Even the physical  features of the hotel are  becoming blurred with a haze  of decades of cigar smoke and  dust; one assumes the walls  of the lobby exist at the limits  of perception; likewise the  cavernous ceiling of the lobby  is intuitively perceived rather  than visually defined.  Something more might have  been made of Blight and the  Travelers than Schneck actually achieves. The opening  chapters are a brilliant hyperbolic evocation of those out of  the way hotels where one feels  like a trespasser in time.  The eventual plot of the  novel wanders from this  perfectly set stage, in an  attempt to explain how J.  Spenser Blight once a handsome, dapper young fortune-  hunter happened to become  the Nlghtclerk. If you've read  One Flew Over The Cuckoo's  Nesl and Naked Lunch,  nothing in Hie Nlghtclerk will  shock or surprise you. Hie  Nlghtclerk is not as good as  either of the above books,  however, and literature of the  fantastic and satiric genre has  to be very good or it falls  flat on its derivative face.  The Nlghtclerk could be a  real sleeper. In a few years  it may well be on the supplementary reading list for  courses in the fantastic literature of the latter half of this  century. In the meantime,  you'll have to take your  chances rummaging in the 50*  book bin in seedy second  hand bookstores, putting up  with the raised eyebrows,  and fumbling explanations:  "It's not how it looks. This is  a serious book, I mean... oh  never mind..." All for now.  Countryside Concerts will  launch it's third season on Sun.  Dec. 7th at 2:00 p.m. at  Elphinstone School with a  performance by one of Canada's most distinguished pianists, Robert Silverman. Last  year Mr. Silverman played in  Gibsons to an enthusiastic  audience of 170 people and  there is no doubt his upcoming  concert will be just as exciting  an event as it was before.  A recent review of Mr.  Silverman's work said:  "Triumphant" is the word  which best describes Robert  Silverman's pair of debut  recitals at New York's Lincoln  Centre in May of 1978. Critics  were unanimous. Peter Davis  of the New York Times called  him a "pianist of importance  and high-minded purpose", the  Daily News praised his "virtually flawless performance",  and Speight Jenkins of the  Post summed up the series by  terming it "one of the most  remarkable piano events ofthe  whole season".  These accolades confirm  Silverman's place in the top  echelon of Canadian pianists  now before the public. He has  been soloist an unprecedented  six times in as many seasons  with the Toronto Symphony,  he has made four consecutive  appearances with the Vancouver Symphony, and has  toured Canada with the National Aria Centre Orchestra.  Other orchestras with which he  has performed include the BBC  Symphony, the Boston Pops,  the Rochester Philharmonic,  and the Montreal Symphony.  Mr. Silverman will play the  Sonata in F Minor by Brahms;  the Beethoven Op. 26 Sonata;  Rachmaninov Etudes Tableaux in C Minor Op. 33 #3,  Op. 39 #5; and two Liszt  Transcendental Etudes.

MMMMMfc Coast N^ws, December 2, 1980  Crafts fair this weekend  by Jeanle Norton 886-9609  Haven't you always secretly  wanted to go to a Pilsbury  Bakeoff, if not as a contestant  then as a judge?

Carlos, hit.  "Women are a much more  responsive audience than  men"  was  the  observation  Lemon! .News  of one of the few males watching "Carlos", the exotic  dancer featured at the Peninsula Hotel last week. The pub  was packed and the women  were indeed demonstrative in  their appreciation with cat  calls, whistles, clapping and  lascivious remarks.  Those who had seen him  perform when he first appeared here some three years  ago were a little disappointed  in the first show of the evening. There was too much  narcissistic strutting and athletics and not enough humour.  The second show, however, demonstrated more of  his old style and sense of  showmanship and provided  good entertainment with his  capework and torch tricks.  He's at his best when he's  playing to the crowd and they  loved him. A lot were coming  back the next night to see him  again.

Lyle had planned nailing a  few spring salmon while he  was here and very cleverly  deduced that all the winter  springs were being caught in  Pender Harbour so he steered  his boat to Madeira Park from  Vancouver and that's where  they drive to every day to  fish. Anyway, Wally and  I mooched and trolled all day  in the gap and got one dogfish and lost eight hooks.  Lyle and his party had but  one nibble for the day in  Bargain Harbour. We're not  sure who won the competition  but Lyle assures us that he  will triple us tomorrow.  Fred and Norma, who have  a summer cabin on the  Muskoka Lakes in Ontario,  thought the fishing here was  every bit as good here as  back home.  There is at the top of  Hotham Sound an inter-  prising couple by the name of  Willie and Victoria Sheath.  (Victoria is Jimmy Layton's  daughter.) They have just  bought their own little bubble  helicopter and Willie is  hauling shake blocks out of the  bush and loading them on his  barge up Jervis Inlet. It is  usually the cause of a minor  stir when Willie whirls into  Egmont to pick up his mail.  Egmont is used to helicopters  through the CBC, the Coastguard, helicopter logging up  Jervis, and the BC Tel helicopters, but a helicopter for  mail pick up is something else.  Penco Mfg. Ltd.

The meeting is  at 2:00 p.m. in the Pender  Harbour Community Hall. In  my opinion, this is the number  one meeting of the year for  residents of this area.  Dangerous cargoes  must be marked  by John Hamilton  There has until now been  great difficulty in identifying  dangerous cargoes - chemicals  noxious gasses, inflammables,  carried in road transport,  barges, or by air (rail cars  were required to be marked).  This situation has led to many  instances of small accidents  turning into major disasters  because of lack of information  on the substance being transported.  Today, a Federal Act has  been proclaimed which will  require all en route cargoes,  by road, rail, ship, barge or  air, to be clearly identified  by an internationally recognized code of symbols which  will classify the hazard and  specify the action to be taken  in the event of a mishap.  The Provincial Emergency  Program is embarking on an  informational project, (as well  as more formal instructional  sessions of four and a half  days, being offered to agencies actually involved in  implementing the Act) and  Mr. Don Williams, who is  Assistant Regional Manager  for P.E.P. in the Lower Mainland, will be coming to the  Sunshine Coast on Tuesday,  December 2nd, to meet  with the Emergency Executive  Committee in the afternoon  and then to conduct a public  meeting in the evening (7:30  p.m. in the Regional Board  Offices) at which time he will  show two short films and  give a talk on the implications  and working of the Act as it  will affect us.  It is hoped that all of our  Emergency Services in particular will be represented  at that meeting.  If you have not read the fifth  draft of the plan, you should.  Copies are available at the  Regional Board office, Sechelt. The people who have  worked on the plan have put  time and effort into it.  Have they got your concept  of how you feel Pender  Harbour should grow? Will  the policies being put into  action prevent any plans you  have for the future? Be at the  meeting and make your  thoughts and ideas known.  If you dislike voicing your  opinion in a public meeting,  write a letter to the Regional  Board. Make up your own  mind about the Settlement  Plan.  ' 1 da fed-<h*t'^:v:jiisp  and draft; being of such  importance, should have been  made available in Pender  Harbour.

The Halfmoon Bay Fire  Department were hosts at this  year's Annual dinner and  social evening for all the Are  departments on the Peninsula.  It was held at the Roberts  Creek Hall on Saturday,  November 22, was well  attended and enjoyed by all.  The wives of the firemen did  a fantastic job of providing  a feast of a dinner and a big  vote of thanks was extended  to convenor Flo Hill and to all  the ladies who helped make up  this great meal. Another lady  who deserved some special  mention was Joan Clarkson  who so generously donated  goodies for the occasion.  Dinner was followed by a  dance in which everyone let  their hair down and had a  good time. To add a bit of  excitement there were five  door prizes. The Jolly Roger  Inn had donated a dinner for  two plus a one night stay at  the Inn which was won by  Belle Dube. Suncoast Ford  contributed a tune up and the  winner was Alan Reid. A lamp  which was donated by the  Wakefield Inn went to Denis  Martin, while a twenty dollar  gift certificate from the Milore  Nursery was won by Nick  Boni and a ten dollar lawn  mower tune up from Jerry  Berthelet went to Ann Barnes.  The members of the Fire  Department were most grateful to these good merchants  for their generous donations.  Dinner Dale changed!  Due to lack of Interest  in the Welcome Beach Community Association's Friday  night Christmas dinner it has  been decided to just have one  night this year. This will be  the Saturday of December  13th. Those who have already  purchased their tickets for the  Friday may now come and join  Saturday's group. This means  however that there will be a  bigger demand for the 13th,  and as seating is limited to  eighty people you would do  well to see that you have your  tickets by now. Sales will be  closed by December 6th in  order that the numbers are  finalized. Should be a good  night, so do join us. Priority  will be given to those who are  members of the Welcome  Beach Community Association, but if you are not yet a  member and if you live in the  area it is very easy to become  a member for the sum of two  dollars. Give Connie Hobbs a  call at 885-5071 and she will  see to it that you get your  membership card right away.  Sooth Seas Cruise  Bill and Maty Dolmage of  Halfmoon Bay have recently  returned from a six-week  cruise to the South Sea Islands  looking well and happy.  They had a really great trip  with sunshine all die way. Bill,  being an old "Sea Dog"  spent much of the time on  the bridge keeping track of the  whole cruise and feeling very  much at home. Mary enjoyed  the complete relaxation of  shipboard life and was much  impressed by the beauty of  the Islands. One of the  highlights was the visit to  Saipan where everything is  kept beautifully clean. They  had a visit to the cliff from  which many Japanese committed suicide by throwing  themselves over the edge Into  the deep waters below. This  was an expression of humiliation at being defeated in the  second world war. There are  memorials set up at the  location which is visited by  many tourists. Like most of us  who have chosen to live in this  part of the world, the Dol-  mages were happy to be home  again despite the dull and  rainy weather here. Also on  the same cruise were Mr. and  Mrs. Chris Dalton who have a  summer place on Redrooffs  Road.  At the Arts Centre  Images as Gifts  Used Furniture  and What Have You  ALS USED  FURNITURE  886-2812  The last show for 1980 at  the Sunshine Coast Arts  Centre in Sechelt is Images as  Gifts - surely the largest  selection of artwork by Sunshine Coast artists available.  Beginning December 2.and  continuing through to December 14, more than thirty  artists will be represented,  both new names and familiar  All work in this show will be  for sale, but interesting  viewing is likely for those not  looking to buy.  The Arts Centre closes  down December 15 for the  holidays and re-opens January  6 with an exhibition of twenty-  five works by the well-known  British artist, David Hockney.  This show will be on loan  from the Vancouver Art  Gallery.  Don't forget our Saturday  Night Coffee Concert on  December 6, 8:30 p.m. featuring Bob Gleason and Bonnie  Low presenting a blend of  country, folk and original  songs. $2.00 admission and  refreshments are available.  by Joan Huestis Foster  Every morning at precisely  six am., one is lulled awake by  the sporadic hiss of automatic  sprinklers without which, I am  told, the gardens wouldn't  exist. Glimpses of the golden  burnt hills just to the North and  East seem to confirm this.  Six am. in every garden, on  the freeway boulevards in the  parks, by the Municipal buildings���spit hiss, spit hiss, spit  hiss. You find your imagination wondering how fast the  reservoirs are dropping...what  would happen if no one were  there...how long are the sprinklers good for? one hundred  years? two hundred? rain or  shine, every morning your  alarm clock is the insistent  sprinkler. Awesome! As are the  results, particularly, the sloping banks beside the freeways,  if you must have several great  swooping cuts through the  centre of town it's nicethat they  are bands of magnificent  colour.  Unexpectedly television is  totally different in San Francisco and will be here too as the  cablevision monopoly is gradually broken. There are  several cables comparable to  thedifference between AM and  FM radio. Showtime is a cable  (you pay extra) which brings in  continuous movies, some of  them first rate with little or no  advertising. Your mood is  never shattered by a screaming  blurb on the glories of toothpaste, deodorant soap, laundry  products or forensic remedies  for piles and gas.  There is an attachment  behind the set which may be  time-set to tape any show while  you are out so you can enjoy it  in your own time.  This gismo will also play  cassettes of any first run movie  which you may rent at $5 for 24  hours which makes it certainly  cheaper than the theatre for a I  family of four and still cheap |  for two. You can't tape these as  a pre-programmed band of  white will appear across the  centre of the screen. If you just  love the wide screen you can  have that too with a home  screen video.. .that is a separate  screen with the workings (and  they do get complicated)  elsewhere. At least having paid  your five clams you'd be more  likely to watch a movie as  opposed to using it for background chatter.  Weekend sports enthusiasts  may have their games taped  while they are doing household  chores or out with the family  and later they can watch the  game in about twenty minutes  minus the half-time marches,  penalties and time outs. 1 am  not sure how the armchair  sportsmen will react to this  because I am never sure  whether they arc watching to  see the play or enjoy the  relaxation.  The key to all this is a neat  white box which looks like a  small typewriter. The box sits  on thc coffee table and of  course there is all that stuff with  lights and a time clock behind  the TV set. I am not saying that  we want or need all this. I never  saw any purpose to loudmouth  Stereo. I am simply saying that  it is here and it is going to create  monumental changes.  In the fifties when automatic  washers, dryers and dishwash-  that this equipment was no  good and wouldn't do a  thorough job but look at us  now!  Thc omnipresent box that is  newspaper, baby sitter, Valium  and chatty companion to the  lovely WILL alter soon with  available dishes (legal or  lawless) and competing cables  because such as thc virulent  current appetites of electronic  North America. It doesn't do  any good to consider the cost of  equipment, ads. sporls, salaries, spots, politics, thc CRTC,  greed programs electricity,  power.... - billions - enough lo  feed India and Cambodia, just  roaring down the tube.  I found it fascinating, for no  apparent reason, to tune in all  the 'all news station' at any time  of the day or night to find  something alarming happening  somewhere and someone  smooth editorializing on thc  event with appropriate dudgeon. News from everywhere.  Traffic accidents in Saigon,  murders in Jersey, divorces in  London and politics in Costa  Rica. Whew!  When I'm down there 1 find  myself thinking thai we aren't  real but when I'm home here I  wonder if ihey arc real or il  there is a reality or what reality  is.  If you want further dudgeon  my grandbaby's first sentence  was the slogan from Mac  Donalds. Now that he is three  he knows almost the entire  script from the Travolta movie  "Grease" by heart.  Though I am not an interfering Granny I have bought  the English musical "Oliver" as  a Christmas gift for the children and when down next I will  inadvertently kick "Grease"  well under the bookcase.

This statement should be  carefully examined to determine at whose door the root  cause of juvenile delinquency  should be laid, and what  remedial steps a community  should take to eliminate much  youthful misbehavior.  The Good School sets up  ordered patterns of living and  daily experiences which it  enforces, time-tables, bus schedules, and so on. Some children  come from homes and neighbourhoods which are devoid of  patterns of systematic living.  Some families do not rise by the  clock. Some families do not eat  regular meals on time. Some  families do not budget, or do  not have the wherewithal! to  budget. Members of some  families come and go at will,  with no curfews or explanation  to another family member to  account for the comings and  goings.  The Good School sets itself  up as a benevolent dictatorship. Some children do not  understand benign authority.  Their total experience has been  a life of emotional damage,  fear, rejection (sometimes  alternated with passionate  love), betrayal, rejection or  indifference.  The Good School stresses  such virtues as fair play,  honesty, cleanliness, and good,  clean speech. These virtues do  not belong in some children's  value systems, because in their  homes these are rated as  weaknesses; if not in their  homes, in the circle of older  adults the child associates with  and admires. Greater prestige is  placed on swearing, shoplifting, stealing, sox play, and  vandalism, all anathema to the  school.  The Good School places  most prestige on abilities to  verbalize and abstract meaning  from printed materials, that is,  the academic phase of the  curriculum. Some children  cannot apply themselves to this  kind of learning on demand,  nor accept it as useful for thf m.  The Good School tries to  retain all youngsters in J its  classes even after they rcjach  school leaving age. Sdme  children cannot be held, and by  walking out at the earliest  opportunity convey their true  feelings about school and  conventional values. In their  brief lifetime, they have not  been convinced that education  has any worth for them. They  join their anti-social friends,  the tough guys, the promiscuous girls.  This is the reality facing  society. The great majority of  citizens do not want the school  to change its values. They want  it to remain a center for  learning, goodness, truth and  light. They do not want it to  become a community convenience for the delinquent - a  community convenience for  socially malajustcd and emotionally disturbed kids who,  when they attend, take up an  inordinate amount of teachers'  times, kids whose needs are  beyond the capacity of the staff  to help them and who spoil the  learning environment for the  conforming kids.  The public, when pressed,  must admit it believes in  expulsions, suspensions and  drop-out for those delinquent  and pre-delinquent youngsters  who upset the smooth operation of the public school.

So it is obvious  that the Good School can bring  out the best in some and the  worst in others. The premise  seems to be true. But we are  creating problems for the  future when we support the  Good School and refuse to deal  with its failures.  Two things must happen if  our society is to help these  educational outcasts. The first  is a new kind of thinking about  child rearing. We cannot let a  family destroy a child before  that child ever gets to kindergarten. No parent has the right  to set a child on the path to  delinquency. We need broad-  minded, motherly home-school  consultants who can make  home calls and help the  mothers of little ones learn how  to program their children for  school success. Few parents are  wicked or mean or intent on  bringing up future penitentiary  inmates. If the mother is  discouraged and poverty  stricken, adequate help must be  provided, good housing, good  food, warm and attractive  clothing. Counselling must be  available when requested.  There must be immediate  response to the needs of  mothers, infants and children.  Day-care centres, night-care  centres, play-and-learn centres  are needed - free and available  to young parents. The cost  should be weighed against what  would be the cost of keeping  the child as adult in a penitentiary for his adult years.  Prevention, not punishment, is  the key.  The second thing we need to  do as a community is to set up  small manufacturing units to  employ your young drop-outs  and to give them skills, education and some money to  spend. Life styles among these  students could parallel those of  young adults in the community. They would graduate  from this school into the world  of work. What community is  ready to accept these challenges? Are we?  silent sam's  open 10 to ?  Elphinstone grades eight, nine and ten honour roll students.  Elphinstone Honour Roll  W5-W1  ���riri.

There comes a time when a group of people must unite and  fight for their basic rights. That time has Come lor the  teachers of British Columbia.  Because we do not have the right to bargain, the provincial government unilaterally took away our fully indexed  pensions, at the same time allowing a higher level of  indexing for public servants, including MLAs. Teachers  got a raw deal.  Teachers confribufe large sums of money annually info  fheir pension fund. They have allowed the government to  use these funds to provide low-interest loans to B.C Hydro  and other crown corporations. In exchange for this cheap  money, thc government guaranteed our pensions, protected from inflation. The government has reneged on ils  promise. Teachers are angry.  We are being treated as second-class citizens. We have  tried Ihe nice way and been rebuffed by government and  denied our rights  Our only choice is action.  The B.C. Teachers' Federation.  This ad is paid for by the teachers of School District #46 in support of our  colleagues demonstrating at the Legislature on December 4,1980. ���pp  mnpMP*  'Music in the Schools  tfaryanne's  viewpoint  by Maryanne West  It's odd, isn't it, that  although almost all children  respond to music as naturally  as they breathe, and music in  some form is a creative  expression shared by all  cultures throughout the his-  ;tory of mankind, a universal  language, yet music is not  rated as important by educators in Canada either as a  part of the school curriculum  or as an important skill for  would-be teachers.  In fact, on the Sunshine  Coast the School Board is  considering a motion that  band Instruction at the elementary level be discontinued  and only offered from Grade 8.  The trustees asked for community discussion on the topic  before making a decision in  February and time was available at both the meetings in  Langdale in October and at  Sechelt in November, but no-  one came. Whether by accident or design it appears that  no-one knew the subject would  be on the agenda.  There are still opportunities  to discuss this important  issue, this Thursday December 4 at Roberts Creek,  January 8 at Madeira Part and  February 12 at Gibsons  Elementary.  Learning to play a musical  instrument seems to me to be  a skill we should offer as many  children as possible. It will  give a lifetime of pleasure and  enhance their critical faculties. I'm told by musicians  that 9-10 years is the best time  to begin. Learning to play a  musical instrument teaches  dexterity, manual and mental  co-ordination, another set of  language symbols which can  open up a whole new world,  the difficult art of concentration and the ability to listen  but perhaps the most important reason for learning to  play in a band in school is  that it rewards effort with an  immediate sense of achievement, the sort of "high"  which all kids need to balance  the inevitable frustrations of  learning.  A musical instrument is an  extension of learning to sing  and develop the range and  potential of the human voice.  I just don't believe that North  American children are tone  deaf as suggested by a  teacher, they have the same  physical equipment as children from, for example, central  Europe where singing is an  important part of every child's  schooling. Our children also  need to learn of the achievements of mankind in the realm  of music making, as wide a  spectrum as possible, so that  they become familiar with the  many different ways in which  sounds can be combined and  used, and have the opportunity to experiment for themselves. That we all have access  to instant music at the touch of  a button doesn't negate the  need for enlarging our experience - on the contrary.  However, the problem isn't as  simple as "yes, let's offer  band instruction to all students". It involves the difficulty of getting qualified  teachers and with only so  much money available the  ever present problem of priori-,  ties occurs. This is why the  School Trustees are asking for  your help in making a decision.  Some people think cultural  programmes, drama, music  crafts etc. should be extracurricular-time in school being  kept for basics. Others would  like them to be an integral part  of the regular school day.  Extra-curricular activites  have always proven difficult  in an area where so many  children are bussed to school  and it seems to me that if  we want to make opportunities  available to all children then  the best time is when we have  them all together. I have never  felt such things as music to be  "frills" - they make a valuable contribution to a child's  self-confidence and self-image  often providing a raison d'etre  for core subjects, they contribute not only to the cohesion of the school as a  viable unit, but help to bring  schools and their communities  in closer touch, to the great  benefit of both. The band  question is really just one  facet of a much larger question which is being put to  British Columbians by the  Minister of Education at a  series of open forums around  the Province. Seemingly one  of the questions which could  now be addressed is why so  many children find school  frustrating, an anxious experience; what happens in  school to change bright-eyed  eager curious youngsters into  foot-dragging, couldn't-care-  less kids?  As I presume the Minister  will not himself come to such  a small area as this, maybe"  the School Board could sponsor a forum at which briefs  could be submitted and discussed as the basis of recommendations to the Minister  from this District, This is an  opportunity for us to consider  this whole, very important  matter of the place of culture  in our curriculum and its  economic priority.  Now may be the time to  come up with some innovative  ideas, maybe we should  lengthen the school day to  make more time for creative  adventures, or set aside whole  afternoons for clubs of one  sort and another. Maybe an  idea which failed to get off  the ground IS years ago, to  shorten lunch hour and free  up time at the end of the afternoon could be looked at again.  Maybe we need to call on  expertise in the community to  complement the skills of our  teachers? Anyway, come to  the Roberts Creek Meeting,  the School Board needs the  community's input to help  them come to a decision.

Ramblings   of a Rover  by Dee Cee  In my erratic wanderings  around the face of this old  globe 1 don't think I have ever  been accused of being a fervent  or frenetic flag waver of any of  the countries that I visited.  Nonetheless, although it may  sound like treason to say so,  there have been times when 1  was definitely of the opinion  that the Stars and Stripes had a  decided advantage when compared with the ones fluttering  the highly respected Union  Jack. A case in point could be  made of my last winter spent in  the lumbercamps of Northern  Ontario.  The outfit I worked for was  known as the Carpenter &  Hixon Co. and their base of  operations was Blind River,  Ontario. The actual forestry  operation and their camps were  in the Mississagi Park region  and I had been assigned to a  camp at Quirke Lake. I cannot  recall who the foreman was,  other than the fact that he was  an American, which is not  surprising seeing that the  company was American owned. The question as to what  they were doing here in Ontario  and why they were cutting  down our trees I leave someone  else to answer, but I shall never  forget the shock and stunned  disbelief when I arrived at the  camp and, it being supper time,  I was directed to the cookhouse or, as they called it, mess-  hall. After having lived the past  two winters almost entirely on  salt pork, beans and flapjacks I  couldn't believe my eyes when I  sat down at the table. Not only  was the kitchen and dining  room spotlessly clean but there  was even oilcloth on the tables  and, as for the food, it was  some time before I could  recover from my amazement  and tie into it with all the gusto  and enthusiasm expected of a  healthy young man of twenty-  two. Would you believe it,  there was actually a choice of  hot meats, both roast pork and  beef being on the table and  platters of cold cuts and a fish  salad? Incredible as it may  seem, when the desserts were  brought in one could have the  choice of apple or raisin pie and  great bowls of canned peaches.  Canned peaches in a lumber-  camp? For the moment I  thought I must have gone crazy  or be experiencing some fantastic dream but it was for real and  all the way to the bunkhouse I  kept shaking my head. 1 still  couldn't believe it!  That winter I reached the  ultimate as far as status went in  a lumbercamp at the time. I had  been hired as a "swamper" but I  hadn't been there very long  when I was offered a team of  horses to drive. 1 accepted with  alacrity and, although it was  too late to get in on the  "skidding" of logs, I took part  in the sleigh haul. I had  discovered on the farms 1  worked on that I had an affinity  with horses, possibly inherited  from my father, and when the  camp broke up in the spring I  really was upset when it came  time to bid farewell to Bob and  Ben my team of magnificent  blacks.  They  were  over   17  hands in height so that with my  shortness of stature I had to  stand on a box in order to  fasten their collars. Even after  so many years I often think of  them.  I had formed a friendship  with an English chap of my age  that winter, so after being paid  off in Blind River, Sid Cum-  mings and I took the train for  Sault Ste. Marie. I really don't  remember why we went there in  the first place but we only  stayed one night at the Victoria  Hotel, which was then owned  and operated by a Chinese  gentlemen. About all I recall of  that night was the potency of  the "white lightning" he sold  and the shrieks and giggles of  numerous young maidens of  dubious virtue, who appeared  to make the Victoria their  permanent residence and who  seemed to have spent the night  wandering from room to room  making sure the other guests  were comfortable.  Sid and I spent the next day  in a fruitless search for work  but somewhere along the line  we heard that they were hiring  pulp cutters in Sudbury, while  there was always a chance in  the nickel mines there. We took  the train that evening for that  town, arriving early the next  morning. I had never been in  Sudbury before, nor had Sid,  but I do know that we had  hardly arrived when the excitement commenced. As I recall  it the train pulled into the  station around 7:10 a.m., we  checked our packsacks and  then stepped out on to Oak  Street. We were debating  whether to stop right across the  street at the Star Cafe for our  breakfast or continue on up  town to be close, at opening  time, to an employment office  that presumably would be  hiring those hypothetical cutters of pulp.  As we stood there discussing  the pros and cons of this  matter, I noticed a way down  the street a commotion of sorts  as a hulking figure of a man  lurched up to an elderly man  who stood looking in one ofthe  shop windows. Shouting "Am I  a man?" he hauled off and hit  this old gentleman such a  wallop he almost sent him  through the plate-glass window. Then, staggering away, he  accosted a young C.P.R.  messenger boy who had stopped his bicycle and, with one  foot balancing on the sidewalk,  was studying the numbers  displayed above the shops.  Again hollering "Am I a man?"  he swung a terrific roundhouse  that sent both boy and bicycle  out into the street. Sid had his  back to all this and did not  appear to be aware of what was  going on so, as this hostile and  apparently insane character  was rapidly approaching us, I  gave him a nudge on the shin  with my foot and warned him  "look out Sid". I had no more  uttered the words than he was  upon us. The same raucous  demand "Am I a man?" and  once again a haymaker in Sid's  direction, which fortunately  did not land as Sid hastily  jumped back.  Now it came my turn as he  roared "Am I.." but that is as  far as he got. I didn't wait to  hear the remainder of his  oratory but let him have it. I  really put everything I had into  that one punch and, seeing that  he was as wide open as a barn  door, had no trouble connecting, lt sent him sprawling off  the sidewalk on to the street  with blood streaming from his  forehead. I was wearing a  heavy signet ring and that and  the blow had opened up a nasty  cut over his left eyebrow.  So far so good, but before I  had any time to congratulate  myself on a real neat performance, I felt a heavy hand on  my shoulder. My natural  thought was, here's another of  these s.o.b.'s to contend with,  so swinging around I was all  prepared to let go when I  realized it was a figure in a blue  uniform, in other words, the  long arm of the law. After  handcuffing me to my would-  be assailant, he commandeered  a passing taxi and away we  went to the police station. At  the desk, after frisking the two  of us, we were jointly charged  with being drunk and disorderly and creating a disturbance in  a public place.  I protested to no avail but as  they were leading me to a cell,  who arrived but Sid, the old  gentleman and the C.P.R.  messenger boy. They had also  commandeered a taxi and lost  no time in rushing to my  assistance. After their corroborating stories of how it had all  happened, of course the police  had to let me go but first  cautioning me that their prisoner was a Swede Finn, one of  a gang, and the others would  probably be looking for me.  After ascertaining that there  were no jobs, Sid and I shook  the dust of Sudbury from our  heels and took the next train  out. However, I still am of the  opinion I should be in the  Guinness' Book of Records. I  arrive in a town at 7:10 a.m.  and am in jail at a quarter  eight. Can you do better than  that?

He was  103 years of age. Born in  Edmonton, Northwest Territories, (Alberta did not join  Confederation until 1905) on  June 10th, 1877, of French-  Canadian parents, he lived his  early life there. As a child, he  remembers his father as being  government agent for the Cree  Indians during the time of the  Riel Rebellion.  He married in Edmonton,  and in 1898, lured by tales of  fortunes to be made, in the  Yukon gold fields, packed up  wife Catherine, one year old  son Fred, and travelled by  train to Vancouver. . From  there they caught a coastal  steamer that took them to  Skagway, Alaska, .rode the  White Pass and Yukon narrow  gauge railway to a tent city  on Bennett Lake, then from  there to Whitehorse by river  boat on top of a load of freight.  .Passage to Dawson was difficult to find, so Edmund  made a deal to take a barge  load of cattle down the Yukon  River. He hired a huge and  powerful black man as a  helper, loaded wife and son  aboard the barge and after  a wild and perilous ride down  narrow rapids and over  shallow sand bars, arrived in  one piece in Dawson City.  This was how one 21 year old  adventurer, his 23 year old  bride and their one year  old son made the long trek  over the notorious Trail of  ���981  He worked for a time as s  packer for the Hudson's  Bay Company; as a winchman  on the dredges; as a welding  apprentice; and even scratched out a few self-taught  tunes on an old fiddle to liven  things up at local dances.  That same old fiddle is one  of daughter Agnes's prized  possessions. Son Fred remembers the tunes old Dad  entertained them with on  many an evening, and of an  incident on the way north  when a customs agent wanted  to charge him duty on the  fiddle. When Dad told him  he could keep It he relented.  That old violin could tell some  tall tales!  Fred Juneau lives in Victoria and is visiting with sister  Agnes Hamilton and husband  Jim here in Sechelt. They  were reminiscing about their  days in the Yukon where  Agnes was born and how Dad  liked to have his family  close by wherever he worked.  Agnes grew up on the big  dredges and especially remembers the cooks galley.  Fred remembers one Christmas when Dad hiked 65 miles  from Glacier Creek to Dawson  City to be with his family at  that special time of year.  It was so cold he would  have frozen if he had stopped  too long to rest.  Among his memorabilia are  messages from Queen Elizabeth, Prime Minister Trudeau, Premier Bill Bennett  and other cabinet ministers,  congratulating him on his  100th birthday in 1977.  One letter of special interest  is dated November Sth, 1938,  written on the stationery  of the Shrine of Saint Terese,  Alaska. It is addressed to  Edmund Juneau, Dredge-  master, Yukon Consolidated  Gold Fields, Dawson, Y.T.  The writer, A.B. Cain,  editor, The Alaska Catholic,  expressed interest in an item  from a Juneau paper that  Edmund would be visiting the  grave of his distinguished  Uncle, Joseph Juneau, for  whom the town was named.  He wanted to meet him on his  arrival.  Back in Dawson, Edmund  had tired of his welding job  and as he had made a friend  of a dredgemaster, he went to  work for him. His friend  taught him all he knew  about dredges and .in due  course, Edmund became a  dredgemaster himself. He was  to take over one of the largest,  wooden hulled dredges in the  world, the Canadian #4.  This same giant dredge,  frozen in its permafrost  base on Bonanza Creek near  Dawson City, .a thousand  miles of airspace separating  their final resting placet,  could well be a symbolic  monument to a master who  cared for its well being;  provided Us life blood of  grease, oil and water; and by  their combined efforts, produced millions of dollars as  they 'moiled for gold' on  behalf of Yukon Consolidated  Gold Corporation Limited.  In a sense, they now share  a common bond.  May they rest in peace!

It's one of  those foods that is traditional to eat at this time of year but is delicious  to eat at any time during the winter season. Il can be made ahead of  time and frozen for use when required.  You will need about 5 pounds of beef brisket neatly rolled and tied.  Make quite sure its tied securely or you will find it falling apart during  the cooking process.  Make the following mixture:  2 tablespoons coarse salt  2 teaspoons saltpeter  3 tablespoons brown sugar  3 cloves garlic, chopped  4 tablespoons pickling spice  Rub the mixture inlo the brisket and place it in a rustproof dish.  Sprinkle any of the remaining mixture over the meat. Cover the dish  and keep it at room temperature for 24 /lours.  The next day, turn the meat over, cover il, and place it in the fridge.  Repeat this process for 10 days.  When the 10 days are up, drain the meat and rinse in cold water lo  remove all the spices. Put il in a saucepan, cover with cold water, bring  to the boil, then drain again. Cover the brisket with cold waler again  and simmer slowly till tender���2 1/2 to 3 hours. When it is cooked,  drain it. If you're going to freeze it wait till it's quite cold then wrap  tightly in freezer paper and pop in your freezer.  If you 're going to eat it straight away, place it in a roasting pan and  stick some cloves in it. Pour some maple syrup over it or make a  mixture of yellow mustard and brown sugar in equal parts and spread  over it. Bake it at 350 degrees Ffor approximately 30 minutes or until  the outside is crisp and brown.

To the  youngsters awaiting Christmas Day and Christmas  Gifts���and goodies, it will be a long month. To some of us  it seems that the months pass by all-too-quickly, even  though we look forward to an end of winter and the  beginning of spring.  Here at Ken's we will look forward to a busy month as  people are already laying in stocks of one kind and  another for the festive season. There will be a number of  private pre-Christmas parties and we like to cater to the  needs of people for these special events. They will be met  with complete satisfaction if we are given the orders  early.  Employers, clubs and other groups will already be  planning their events. These often require extra stocks of  glasses, cups, trays, paper plates and napkins (plain or  fancy), extra ash trays, candles, bulb replacements, not  to mention all the goodies that will be served up from the  Baker, the Butcher, the Produce man, the Grocer, the  Pop man, or the Dairy man. Plan ahead���make your  arrangements now with our Department Heads.  The Butcher at Ken's is already taking orders for  turkeys, and/or other poultry. He, of course, had to  estimate our requirements and place his order in  October. The word is that Turkeys will again be scarce in  certain sizes and the price is likely to be a little higher than  last Thanksgiving. Some people have been choosing  other than Turkeys for the Christmas dinner. Be that as it  may���do order NOW for beat choice.  i*V,jmj  Da  N _���    jy  i  nets*  Cheese : Toward the middle of December cheese  shortages are usually the trend, particularly certain  imported lines.

Some increase has been  rumoured lor some time, hut  few people were prepared lor  the magnitude and sevcritj ol  these increases. Main are  questioning their necessity.  I.C.H.C.'s mosl recent annual repoil showed the corporation held a balance ol cash  and investments totalling S52ft  million at the end ol last year.  Included is a sum of S.V9  million in thc rate-stabilization  reserve "to lessen the potential  unpad of significant variation  in claims loss experienced and  the equalization of rates under  the l\ VI.R. program". In fact,  I.C.B.C. earned profits of S73.4  million in the period since Hill  Bennett assumed office. Under  these conditions, ihe government has some explaining to do  lor thc se\erit\ ol these increases, and will he asked to do  so al ihe coming session of the  legislative assembly.  Foremost among those hit  bv the increases are senior  citizens. Already stung by thc  loss of the 25 percent senior  citizens', discount, most seniors  are lacing hikes in the range of  7li percent.  Since most seniors operate  mi i fixed income, many will  1 vc nowhere to turn to make  up Ihis increase. The result will  be exactly what Pat McGeer  warned in 197ft. they will have  10 sell their cars. For many  seniors this means increased  isolation from family and  friends, perhaps leading to  greater difficulty in coping with  old age.  Ii is interesting that I.C.B.C.  has loaded thc heaviest portion  nl ils increases on "optional  coverage". Ihis means that  collision coverage, additional  public liability in properly  damage, comprehensive fire  and theft will escalate greatly.  We can only speculate, but  one likely reason for this is thai  private insurance companies  can compete for oplion coverage. By escalating its rates to  this degree, thc Socreds may be  making il more attractive for  private insurance companies to  compete with I.C.B.C.  Private insurers are only  interested, of course, il they can  make a profit operating as they  always lune. Ihe I.C.B.C rate  hikes will probably help the  private insurance industry.  An additional consequence  nl ihe higher insurance premiums on optional coveragac is  thai lewer people will take out  collision coverage. This means  ihcv arc likely to drive older  us in pom condition. Perhaps  ollision damage will go unrepaired.  Some have suggested there  will be an increase in hit-and-  run accidents caused by lewer  drivers with collision coverage.  Perhaps increases on ihis  scale are onlv lo he expected  Irom n government which is nol  commuted lolhc philosophy ol  public auto insurance In  Saskatchewan, the M)l> go-  icrncmnl has operated auto  insurance loi more lhan thirty  veils Ihcv have ncvei experienced a situation in which  an average 40 percent increase  Itas been required.  When ihe legislature reconvenes. NDP members will be  pressing lo government lo seek  equitable wavs to finance  I.C.B.C.'s operations.  Perhaps, in the final analysis.  the onlv wav lo i id ourselves ol  draconian insurance rate hikes  is io rid ourselves ol the  government which bungs us  them.

IN 1981?  1980 saw thc implementation of Phase I of the  Fundamental Auto Insurance Rating program.  The whole idea behind FA.I.R. is ultimately to remove  any form of discrimination in automobile insurance rates for reasons of age, sex, marital status or  where a person lives in the province. It seeks to  link Autoplan rates solely to an individual's driving  record, habits and attitudes. And that's fair.  Phase II of the five-year F.A.I.R. program will take  effect on January 1,1981. Here are the highlights:  1. REMOVAL OF AGE AS A RATING FACTOR  This step completes the removal of age, sex and  marital status as factors in determining how much  you pay for your Autoplan insurance. From now on,  no individual or group will be penalized or favoured  solely on the basis of age.  2. INTRODUCTION OF A DRIVER ACCIDENT  PREMIUM  In order to place financial responsibility squarely  where it belongs-on the individual behind the  wheel-a Driver Accident Premium will be introduced  on January 1,1981. It will apply to drivers of vehicles  rated for pleasure or drive-to-work use. It means that  drivers of such vehicles who are responsible for  an accident which results in property damage or bodily  inlury to other.1; will pay an additional premium of  $390 for each accident.  This premium may be paid in one lump sum or  in three equal instalments-the first payable at the  time liability is detemiined, and the second and third  on the next two anniversaries of the accident.  IF thc total claim is S100 or less, this Driver  Accident Premium will not be charged. If the liability  is divided, each driver whose share of the claim is  more than S100 will be charged the full Driver Accident  Premium. If thc claim is less than S390, the driver  who is at fault may choose to make a single payment  equal to the amount of the claim, rather than pay  the Driver Accident Premium.  This premium is charged to the driver of the  vehicle, whether or not he or she is the owner.  Failure to pay a Driver Accident lYemium after notice  from the Corporation will result in denial of Own  Damage coverage for a subsequent claim.  There are two exceptions to this new Driver  Accident Premium:  (a) It does not apply to drivers of vehicles rated  for commercial or business use. Since the cost of  insurance is a business expense, it's unfair that an employee-driver should pay the Driver Accident  Premium when responsible for  an accident while driving an  employer's vehicle.  However, accidents will still  mean higher  insurance costs for  owners of such  vehicles because  business and commercial vehicles will continue  to be rated under the existing Sale Driving Vehicle  Discount system in 1981.  |b) The Driver Accident Premium will also not  apply to drivers ol motorcycles or trailers. This  is because the cost ol the accident premium could  exceed the total cost of Autoplan insurance lor  these low-premium vehicles. However, motorcycles and  trailers will still he rated according to'the Safe  Driving Vehicle Discount system in 1981.  3. CONTINUATION OF THE SAFE DRIVING  VEHICLE DISCOUNT  The Safe Driving Vehicle Discount system will  continue to be applied throughout 1981,  For instance, if your vehicle was involved in an  accident at any time in the three years prior lo  December 31,1980, you will lose, or already have lost,  part of your Safe Driving Vehicle 1 )iscount.  Despite any changes in the FA.I.R. program, you  will still have to 'cant back' the lull 3-year discount  with the required one, two or three years of accident-  free driving-  An accident occuring after December 31, 1980,  on which a Third Party claim is paid, will result in  assessment of a Driver Accident Premium.  4. REVISIONS TO THE PENALTY POINTS  PREMIUM PROGRAM  In addition to the new Driver Accident Premium  for people who cause accidents, 1981 will see a  revision of the Penalty Points Premium program as a  deterrent to irresponsible drivers who acquire  penalty points for traffic violations.  The minimum number of points a driver can  acquire without financial penalty is now 5 instead  of 6.The maximum number is now l~i instead of 20.  Thc dollar amount of thc additional Penalty  Points Premium is calculated by squaring the number  of points, equating that figure to dollars and  adding 30%.  5. ADJUSTMENT OF TERRITORIAL RATES  Further changes will be made in the FA.I.R. program towards eliminating differences in territorial  rates. In 1981, these differences will be adjusted to a  maximum spread of 20'\> between territories.  WHAT'S  NEWIN1981?  Several insurance options will he available to you  in 1981 when you renew your Autoplan insurance.  Please take time to check them out belore you renew.  They are part ol ICBC's continuing program  to provide a broader range of coverage to meet your  specific needs.  to pay claims for bodily injury and death. It provides  lor the victim's own Third Party Liability coverage  to be applied to bring the total payment to the higher  amount ol coverage.  For example, in a situation where a driver at fault  carries $100,000 Third I'arly Liability coverage hut  the victim carries $500,000, the higher amount can he  applied to the claim.  2. INCOME REPLACEMENT  If you consider that the standard No-Fault benefits  would be inadequate to cover your lost earnings  in the event of an injury resulting from an accident,  you may wish to consider this endorsement. It provides limited additional lost income protection and  death benefits.  3. LOSS OF VEHICLE USE  You can purchase this endorsement in conjunction with an Own Damage policy. It provides for  reimbursement on a fixed scale to cover the expenses of a rental vehicle when you make a valid claim  for Own Damage coverage.  You can choose reimbursement to start 24,48 or  72 hours after the accident is reported to ICBC  or the police. It will end with completion of repairs,  replacement of your vehicle, or the date on which  ICRC tenders settlement foi the loss of your vehicle.  4. AUTOPLAN RATES FOR 1981  Unavoidably, Autoplan rates will increase in 1981.  Why' Quite simply because the number of accidents is going up) the severity ol personal injuries is  increasing; the cost of settling clflims-both collision and personal injury-is skyrocketing.  We can't control these factors. The costs we can  control, like the administration ol Autoplan, are  among the lowest lor any corporation in the auto insurance industry in North America: 16ccntsnithe  premium dollar versus an industry overage of 30 cents.  Inflation plays a large part in the rising  cost oi settling insurance claims, but so does the increasing complexity and sophistication ol today's  automobiles. Dual headlights, unitized bodies, lightweight materials, catalytic converters...these are  just some of the advances in safety, environmental  protection, fuel economy and styling that make  every' accident that much more costly. Settlements for  injuries are also increasing each year.  So, here are the rate increases scheduled tor 1981:  An average increase ol 31",, for compulsory  Third Party Liability coverage.  An average increase of 48"., for extended  Third Party Liability and (."ollision  coverages.

George W. Inglis  In these days of declining  and disappearing Sunday  Schools, something of a phenomenon has been taking place  in Gibsons���there is a Sunday  School rising like Phoenix  from the ashes!  Every Sunday morning  somewhere close to 75 children  get on board "Thc Good Ship  Glory", and are transported  through an hour of enthusiastic  Bible study and good fellowship, belore they "dock"once  again, and arc ferried home by  their waiting parents.  What is the Good Ship  Glory?  It is a Sunday School which  was re-born last fall by a group  of people in Gibsons United  Church���a group which consisted mainly of parents and  grandparents, spearheaded by  a few people who had seen the  Sunday School dwindle down  to a do/en or so children the  previous year.  The nautical motif was  suggested by one of the group,  a former Navy man, who  though it would be a catchy  idea to call the proposed  Sunday School "The Good  Ship Somcthing-or-Another,"  and it was a teenager, the only  person in the room under 60-  odd years (with one or two  exceptions), who came up with  thc name "Glory".  The idea took hold, and the  letters that went out retained  the ship idea, and thc theme  song of the new-borning Sunday School became the Battle  Hymn ofthe Republic. "Glory,  glory, hallelujah!"  The men and women who  launched the "ship" had more  enthusiasm than experience, in  many cases, but the idea took  like wildfire among the congregation, and when the Sunday School began to take  shape, it was "manned" by  many warm-hearted and wonderful leachers, who joined in  joyfully at the launching of the  ship, and have been voyaging  every Sunday since then.  The difficulty of having an  absence in the congregation of  young parents was solved by  personal canvassing and in  some cases, by offering rides to  children whose parents were  unable to supply a ride to the  "docks", for the Sunday tour.  It was no time at all until the  enrollment of the "ship" was  125 crew members, and the  week by week attendance has  kept up extremely well.  Like any good ship, it has its  officers, "Skipper Moe", "First  Mate Edith", and "Admiral  George", and all the other deck  officers, and the "crew" are  truly ecumenical having come  from all sorts of backgrounds  within the community.  The officers chart their  course carefully in their early  morning cruises, but it is the  times of the church celebrations when the miracle of  rejuvenation comes home to  the congregation.  This is when the crew of the  Good Ship Glory join the  worshippers in the main body  of the church to participate in  the service with the joyful folks  who are two or three generations their senior, and yet the  feeling is one of warmth and  celebration.  In this day of declining  Sunday Schools in the mainline  traditional churches, to the  point where some have closed  down altogether, and others  are running skeleton operations, it is a delight to all who  participate in such an operation, which would put many  urban churche's to shame.  The problem of how to  attract children to Sunday  School is one which is stimulating inquiry into some means  of bringing into being a  resurrection of the institution  that once was an integral part  of the life of the majority of  children, from school age to  teen age.  The church, particularly the  urban church, realizes that its  self-perpetuating quality which  has existed for 2,000 years, is in  peril unless the children rise up  through the ranks to take the  places decimated by the passing  of the church's stalwarts.  Many churches have taken  the matter seriously enough to  put on vigorous campaigns to  stimulate interest, but today's  world, with its many, many  attractions for Sunday consumption have proven to be a  big hurdle in the churches'  path.  Many churches face the  additional problem of having  at least one generation, and  maybe two, which is comparatively unchurched, and  consequently those who have  not experienced the fundamentals of church life through  their childhood, have not the  same interest in passing on the  incentive to their own youngsters to attend Sunday School.  Many parents, in an honest  attempt to be more open-  minded than their own parents,  have said they wanted to make  up their minds, but it can be  pretty difficult for a five-year-  old to decide on going to  Sunday School!  Other agree that Sunday  School "never did me any  harm," but think they are a  thing of the past, and have  outlived their usefulness.  Whatever the stimulus, there  is an experience in store for  those who have never seen the  shining eyes of a child who is  exploring new territory, learning new insights into life, and  venturing beyond the confines  of everyday routine.  And when that new territory  is made exciting and joyous,  stimulated by the joy of the  guides, something good is  bound to come out of it.  It is happening in Gibsons,  and elsewhere!

The purpose of the tournament and the dance is to raise  money toward the Renegades'  trip to Hawaii in March to  compete in the Royal Hawaiian World Soccer Crown  Tournament. 19 players and  the Coach and Manager will  travel to Hawaii March 19 to  take part in five days of international tournament competition against teams from Asia,  Africa, North and South  America, the South Seas and  Europe.  The trip will cost the  Renegades       approximately  $25,000 and the team plans  to hold a number of fund  raising tournaments and e-  vents in order to help finance  the excursion. Renegades'  Manager, Hubert Joe, says  the team is excited and eager  to see how they fare in competition on an international  level.  Seventy five fans, including  Senator Guy Williams, Chief  Si Baker and Chief Dan  George have expressed an  interest in accompanying the  Renegades to the islands to  cheer the team on. The team is  also planning to take a contingent of traditional native  <dancers with them on what is  shaping up as a large-scale  invasion of the Hawaiian  Islands in the spring.  From the Fairway  by Ernie Hume  A cold but eager group of  golfers played a nine hole  tournament on Grey Cup day,  then retired to the clubhouse  to watch a humdrum exhibition of football on the  club's T.V. set. The group  then enjoyed a nice lunch,  prepared by the hardworking  house committee.  Last November 4th one of  our long-time members,  Jim Leith, playing with friends  from out of town, had the  pleasure of holing his tee shot  on the short #8 hole. Jim's  hole-in-one provided a week's  vacation for some unfortunate  youngster. This programme is  sponsored by Molson's Brewery who send a youngster to  camp for any hole-in-one  reported to them in B.C.  Our next event will be our  annual "Tom & Jerry" party.

The senseless destruction  of 25,000 salmon eggs in an  incubator box in Pender Harbour does not, in anybody's  books, come under this  category, but this in fact is  ��4iat happened recently.  | If I had to find a name for  this heinous crime I would call  it murder, or at the very  least manslaughter and yet  there is nothing anyone can  do about it. The whole thing is  so pointless, but then vandalism is just that and it is  doubtful whether even the  people perpetrating these  actions could come up with  some logical explanation for  doing it.  Very rarely does vandalism  cause loss of life, but I suppose it does happen sometimes by accident as a secondary result of the vandals'  actions. This time the whole  idea was to exterminate the  contents of an incubator box  being looked after by the  students of the Pender Harbour High School in connection with the salmon enhancement programme. Some  person or persons unknown  disconnected the water line  feeding the incubation box  and 25,000 salmon eggs (lied.  I'll bet the person who did it  is real proud of himself.  The length of time between  the water being cut off and the  time of discovery are not  known, but if the pipe had  been re-connected immediately it was discovered, some  of the eggs might have been  saved. They have been known  to survive for 48 hours and  surprisingly can stand quite a  bit of abuse. The students who  put all that time and effort  into making this project become a reality could not be  blamed if they never took any  more interest in the Salmon  Enhancement programme a-  gain. After all, what's the use,  if things like this happen.  They couldn't be blamed for  thinking this way, but somehow I don't think they will.  Students who take part in  these sort of programmes  don't give up all that easily  and next year you can bet the  box will be moved to a location  where it can be observed more  easily and I don't doubt  that this will be considered  as all part of the learning  experience.  The incubation, or up  welling box, as it is called,  was  first  used   in   Pender  An alternative to Tupperware?  Stand on your own feet  by Dorothy Nahanee  Having returned from a trip  to the big city, I conclude that  the majority of people arc not  interested in doing anything for  themselves. They seem quite  content to be propped up by  bureaucratic crutches and arc  willing to pay dearly for thc  privilege.  As the talk of recession  increases, so docs the spending  on useless gimcrackery. It is  people who are on fixed and  low incomes that are suffering  as the price of necessities spiral  higher.  When I left the city, Tupperware parties were still in vogue.  The latest thing now are love  aid parties. These are parties  where the local neighbourhood  ladies meet to giggle and goggle  over the latest in Frederick of  Hollywood lingerie and other  &*  i��?i-  ��*��*  *S*-  HaELffiGEORGA  801 West Georgia St., Vancouver, B.C.

The  lingerie is ridiculous. Most of  the vital parts are missing! My  sophistication was in question  when I suggested they could  save money by making their  own out of some worn curtains.  Homes are no longer built or  bought as places to live and set  down roots. They are simply a  way to create a quick source of  profit. There are cracker boxes  built during the second world  war that were built to last a few  years that are selling for  $80,000 and up. Land values  have escalated. I saw huge  machines that pound down the  soil so that nothing will grow  there again in order to build a  parking lot. How can land  values be so inflated on a piece  of land that has been devastated for- all time? Unless  people have food to eati.l  wonder how long these barren  acres of asphalt will be worth  anything. There will eome a  time that top soil will be worth  more than gold.  Well, I am back in Gibsons  again and I hope it will be a few  years before we become so  decadent.  Now if anyone is interested I  have found a easy recipe for a  coffee substitute. It tastes a bit  nuttier than Postum and leaves  a bit of sediment behind in the  cup. The cost is about 85c for  about 8 cups of makings.  Compared with the same  quantity of Postum the savings  works out to be $1.84 a jar.  Coffe has been found to be the  cause of everything from birth  defects to ulcers. The price is  enough to make an alternative  beverage desirable.  Take four cups of bran, one  cup of coarsely ground wheat  and two cups of black strap  molasses and mix together.  Leave in a warm place to dry  thoroughly. Spread on a cookie  sheet and roast in the oven at  around 300 degrees till it is  about the colour of coffee  grounds. Grind in a flour  grinder or blender. The powder  should resemble instant coffee.  Mix a heaping teaspoon to a  cup of boiling water and add  honey and cream or your own  preference.

Citation  Carefree  Lock-wood  Pandoifo  Janron  Harbour School two years  ago. Last year it was inactive  but this year it has been  spruced up and, a lot of work  was done on the water line  feeding it. The eggs were  taken from flsh in Anderson  Creek round about October  23rd and had only been in  one week when the box was  vandalized. It makes one  wonder if this was some  sick person's idea of a Hallowe'en prank.  The sad part of the whole  thing is that the flsh are  being abused all over the  coast and adults are just as  guilty as young people. Much  of the damage is caused by  ignorance and like many  other things it is a case of  educating the public in what is  acceptable and what is not.  This education process cannot  start soon enough and I guess  the younger the person,  the more receptive he or she  will be to these teachings.  Many of the local schools,  both elementary and high,  have taken advantage of the  material that the S.E.P.  people have assembled for  use by teachers. The idea is  to give the students theoretical as well as practical  experience and it is hoped  that by the time they leave  school they will be much more  responsible and concerned  people as regards the environment they are inheriting  and that they will be able to  pass their knowledge on to  their parents and to their  own children eventually.  It is going to be a long and  arduous task, but the most  recent stupidity only goes to  emphasize the importance of  this programme.

Phone 886-7426  7LA5SIFIEDADS  On the  Seafood Platter  by Chak-Chak  I was talking to Ted Strom  the other day and he told me  that his brother Dan and he  were planning on taking the  Twln-J out on a food herring  trip in a few days. Of course I  told him that I would be  interested in some fresh  herring if they were able to  bring some back to Gibsons  and he said that there were  a number of people who had  indicated that they would  also be very pleased to obtain  fresh herring from them.  So, if you are an 'Old  Country' type who yearns for  a feed of the silver beauties  keep your eye on the Gibsons  government wharf and look for  the east-coast type fishing  vessel with two masts and  painted a bright blue. Twln-J  is her name and her home port  is Gibsons.  Most people in this area  think only of herring as those  small fish you use as bait for  catching salmon and when  these fish come in to spawn  in shallow water they can be  jigged with a multi-hooked  line or caught in small sein  nets around wharves and  floats. I used to catch them by  the Indian method of raking  them out of the school with a  herring 'rake'.  Herring are more famous  in Europe as a pan fish.  My father would often break  forth into song about "Ska-  den, the king of the sea".  My dad was born on the Isle  of Man in the Irish Sea and  "skaden" was the gaelic  name for this fish that was so  important to them as a fresh  food fish and as a product to  be smoked and exported as  "smoked kippers".  Herring is also important  to our Canadian fishery  both on the Atlantic and  Pacific coasts. The Pacific  Herring (Clupea harengus) is  an abundant open-water fish  that feeds on plankton. In its  young stages it exists in large  schools in shallow areas. In  the early spring, adults spawn  in intertidal regions that have  abundant vegetation.

Obviously the School District must make a decision re  band which would give equal  opportunity to all elementary  band students in the District.  I am coming to support the  dropping of band as an elementary programme throughout the district and encouraging recreation/adult education to run the programme  on a "user-pay" basis. I don't  believe band should receive  preferential treatment in the  school curriculum over piano,  ceramics, drama, gymnastics,  dance or other specialities that  are a part of the school's  general programme offering.  Perhaps band, theatre,  and gymnastics programmes  should be viewed as extracurricular to the extent that  the School Board not commit  itself to hiring teachers to  teach those subjects alone but  rather focus on hiring teachers  of Music, English and P.E.  This band issue first came  up in the Spring and at that  time I made a motion to table  it until February 1981 (Budget  deadline) and in the meantime  encourage public discussion  of the issue. There was no  public discussion at either  Langdale or Sechelt in October  and November. There will be  a chance to put your views  forward at our Educational  meeting at Roberts Creek  on December 4th.  If you're interested, come  and make your feelings  known.

One can only  assume that the pressure of  deadline was too great and the  temptation too strong simply  to jump on the metro media  bandwagon and teacher-bash.  Unfortunately, the Sun has  since reported more folly and  accurately on the Flanders  Report. (See the well-written  article on Page S, Friday,  November 28).  Unfortunately, also, virtually every one of your  "facts" is in error. The BCTF  has not been "sitting on"  that report; six months ago,  over 1,000 copies were distributed to the outgoing  Executive, the incoming Executive, staff, Professional  Development committees, local presidents, and members  of the Representative Assembly in every one of the 75  school districts in B.C. The  report has been much  quoted and discussed. Dozens  of people, including the  present Executive, have been  seeking solutions to the  problems it outlined (which,  incidentally, were hardly news  t�� anyone connected with  teaching ��� the BCTF consists  of 30,000 very busy people  strung throughout every community in this province, and  communications an difficult).  In fact, the report was  conuniaaloned by the BCTF  and had primarily to do with  professional development. It  contained striking condemnation of teacher education and  of the present Ministry of  Education, which teachers  cited as major sources of  frustration. Flanders dealt  with teacher stress at much  greater length than with the  organisation. He,said, '"Hie  difficulties of contemporary  teaching include the following: relentless time pressure,  cellular isolation, an information and Administrative  blitz, a network of unrealistic  expectations, the demanding  mental effort of teaching,  extra duties and responsibilities, no preparation time,  a general environment of  negativism (emphasis mine),  social factors, the position of  the classroom teacher at the  bottom of the education status  system and fear for their jobs  for those who 'get out of  line'."  The shots you levelled at  our professional association,  Mr.   Burnside,   were  badly  were not half a million children and. 30,000 teachers in  public schools; more like a  quarter of that.  Your main complaint seems  to be (although it Is difficult  to tell) that the BCTF has  been too preoccupied with and  too successful at raising  teacher salaries. In fact, a  major portion of our membership fee goes toward professional development. The  emphasis in bargaining is  shifting from salaries to working conditions, and working  conditions for teachers means  learning conditions for children.  If you considered yourself  overpaid as a teacher, you  were right to resign, but do  look at the facts.  Last year the average  teacher's salary was $22,455,  but that of a regular classroom  teacher was $21,492, while  that of an administrator was  $23,415. Many surveys, including Department of Labour  statistics, confirm that tea  chers work a conservative  average of 50 to 55 hours a  week.  In 1979, the contract a-  verage increase in B.C. )vas  9.1%. The increase fo* leachers was 7.9%, for|rWA  9.7% and for trades 1.0%.  Between 1971 and 1980, the  average teacher increase was  9.4% while the IWA base increase was 11.3%, and in  trades 11.3%. Average weekly  work hours for those under the  Labour Code are 35 to 37'/a.  And your last contention  that the BCTF provides  "lucrative semi-retirement for  the activists who run It" I  cannot stomach, being one of  those activists. I get no  financial reward for my  endeavours and rather little  rest from them. I am active  because I like teaching and  want to improve thing* for  teachers and students and one  of the best ways I can see to do  that is to join with my colleagues in our federation.

Gordon Arthur was hunting  nn Keats Island recently and  as happens when you are  successful in hunting, he  bagged himself a deer.  It may sound strange to say  this, but it was for the best  that the deer was shot.  When Gordon examined it, he  found that its hind legs were  tangled up in a mess of  fishing line. The poor animal  had been like this for some  tjme. The line had worn  rjght through the hide and  (Jown to the bone. Nice, eh!  ' Fishing line is made to be  invisible under water and it is  also almost impossible to see  on land, during the day and  impossible to see at night.  An animal doesn't have much  of a chance once it's entangled  in the stuff and can look  forward to slow starvation.  It's frustrating when you  are fishing and your line backlashes and you end up with a  bird's nest that was only a few  seconds ago a brand new  line, but overcome the temptation to cast it aside in  disgust. Put it in your pocket  and take it home, it won't  inconvenience you much. If  you feel for some reason that  you want nothing else to do  with the offending line,  at least have the sense and  decency to cut it into small  pieces.  Remember that the reason  you are out fishing in the  First place is because there  is an attraction and prize out  there. If we keep booby  trapping it, then you're  cutting off your nose to spite  your face.  Wayne will wax eloquent.  Wayne Diakow will be  the speaker at the next birding  meeting of the Sechelt Marsh  Society.    Knowing    Wayne,  his enthusiasm could make  picking potatoes in the rain  sound exciting, but from what  he said on the phone, he has a  good show lined up.  This summer, He took a  canoe trip up the Coppermine  River to the Arctic Ocean and  he'll be giving a slide show  and talk on the flora, fauna  and feathered life there.  He'll also be talking about  the Christmas bird count  which is scheduled for Sunday  December 21st.  Before I forget, the Marsh  Society meeting is at the usual  place at the usual time:  Thursday, December 4th at  7:30 in Chatelech.  He also passed on some  interesting sightings of cattle  egrets in the province, all  recent. Nine have been seen in  Nanaimo, six at the Reifel  Sanctuary in Langley, two at  Prince Rupert and another at  Fort St. John. The birds are  still at most of these locations,  so it would be a good idea if  we kept our eyes open around  here. They mostly congregate  in fields or marshy areas.  It would really be a feather  in the caps of the Sargeant's  Bay Society if they could get  a couple of sightings there.

The great thing about the  car is that it gets about SO  miles to the gallon, can be  powered by either gasoline or  gas, and can be made to  accommodate a wheelchair.  All this plus a price tag of  around $2,000. Murchie admitted that because of the  time limitation, the designing  could use some streamlining.  Pat McGeer, who is presently  looking into the possibility  of a car powered by natural  gas, has been sold on the  idea. So it's feasible, now that  the car has government  blessing, it could get off the  ground. Well done, Mr.  Murchie, may you have all  success.

Winter's for the birds.  Just in case you think that  winter is the dead time of  year for spotting birds, I took a  quick run around a couple of  spots on Friday afternoon.  The Roberts Creek Campsite sign on the highway had  the added decoration of a male  sparrow hawk sitting atop it.  At the beach in the Creek,  there were kildeers and an  assortment of waterfowl out  in the surf. The golf course is  once again being the winter  host to a flock of American  wigeons. Davis Bay has ;  usual assortment of  loons and grebes, plus /  can wigeons and, here's  visual delight, four hariequ  ducks. Porpoise Bay held  coots, buffleheads, scoters,  goldeneyes, wild mallards,  American wigeons and a kingfisher. This collection was  seen with little more than a  cursory glance from my car,  obviously there's a lot more  around, so bundle up and  head out.  That's all for now, so if you  come up with anything interesting, give me a call at  886-2622, 886-7817 or 886-  9151,1a.

In the telling of my 'search  for a career', I have neglected  to tell of two permanent  attachments that had become  a very vital part of my life;  namely, a wife and wee  daughter.  Bess was a city gal. The  idea of isolation in the boondocks just did not fit in with  her scheme of things as lady  of the house. Besides, at the  time I had decided on a career  in logging, Bess was in the  final stages of delivering our  first progeny. We had agreed  that the bush was no place  to be diapering a new little  mustard machine, be it boy,  girl or both.  Her folks (salt of the earth,  bless 'em) rented a large  rooming house in the Fairview  district of Vancouver in which  they sub-let housekeeping  rooms. They had provided us  with a small suite for a minis-  cule. monthly rent. Not unselfishly, I might add - they  were going to assure themselves of the enjoyment of a  grandchild for a few months at  least.  Our daughter Carol arrived  in due course and at the time  of our shutdown on Cecil  Mountain, she was a few  months of age and thriving.  I felt it was now time for us  to be living together as a  family if I could provide  comfortable quarters on the  Island.  I could have taken Bert's  offer of swamping on his  sawdust truck for the winter  and just move to town.  Come spring, we could have  headed for the hills and gone  on from there.  I But life is full of vagaries.  My new found friend, Percy  'Cougar' Brown, absolutely  intrigued me, and his cougar  hunting stories around our  noon fires had filled me with a  determination to learn all I  could about working with  dogs, tracking the cougar, and  in general, just surviving  in the woods. What better  teacher could I have than a  true son of the forests and  trails, an honest man of very  few but well chosen words.  A very strong bond had  developed between us, a  rapport that required very  little stimulation; just a nod or  a glance between us; a motion  of the hand; or a wave and a  grin that spoke volumes.  If the cultivation of this friendship meant only an occasional  visit home during the winter...  so be it!  I was torn between two  loves; my little family in thei  city, or my new friend and a'  new way of life. The answer to  that was to bring the two  together. With this in mind I  went house hunting.  I rented a two room cabin  about a city block from the  Cassidy store and about a  mile from the Browns. I  borrowed Bert's little truck  and put in a good winter wood  supply. We moved the meagre  bit of furniture from the camp  cabins; kitchen range, table  and chairs, bedroom suite,  etc. When finished, it looked  quite cosy, comfortable and  homelike.  The next step was to come  up with a plausible story to tell  Bess and both families of how  I was going to provide comfort  and security to a city bred wife  und a wee baby through the  three or four long, cold  months of a depression  winter. If I told them I was  going to depend on a dog to  chase a cat up a tree to provide  us with bounty money to pay  the bills, all my grandiose  dreams of setting up a base.  camp with my little family in  it would have gone down the  drain. With this nagging fear  in mind, I headed for Vancouver.  I suppose in my selfishness,  I was being unfair to Bess  when I told her that my plan  was irreversible, that I would  live on the Island alone if  need be. In the end she  relented and agreed to come.  Both families thought this  was pretty dirty pool and as a  result my stock, which had  always been held in high  esteem, plummeted lower  than a moccasin's heel. A  promise of a Christmas visit  relieved the tension somewhat  but a lot of tears were flowing  when we climbed aboard  the bus to Vancouver Island.  It was late evening and  snowing lightly when we  stepped down off the bus at  Cassidy.    Our   boxes    and  1 packed across  the tracks and parked on the  porch of the closed general  store. I would have to come  back for them later.  With Carol bundled to the  eyes and Bess hanging on my  arm, we trudged the short  distance to our first real home  together. I was in dread of her  reaction to my conception  of a 'snug little home' when  we walked into the cold  cabin.  My fears were unfounded.  Just as we clumped onto the  little porch, the front door  was flung open, a lamp was  turned up, and just inside  the door stood Brown, Jessie  and their two kids.  In unison, they shouted  "Welcome home"!  The warmth of the welcome  and the crackling fire in the  kitchen range was all that was  needed to bring the end of  our journey to a happy climax.  Our base camp was established and within a couple of  days Brown and I would be  terrorizing the cougar population of the Timberland  country,  I could hardly wait to get  started!  To be continued  YMCA Winter Camp  YMCA is announcing its  third annual Celebration  Camp for girls and boys aged  seven through thirteen. The  Celebration Camp is a three  and a half day resident  camping adventure at the  YMCA's Camp Elphinstone  in Gibsons from December 29  to January 1.

Jyrrkancn recommended  that the strongest pressure be  brought to bear on Federal  Fisheries Minister Romeo  LeBlanc and Environment  Minister Jim Roberts, since the  federal government is empowered both to protect the  habitat of the salmon and to  create parks "in perpetuity".  The meeting also heard a  report from Society researcher  Jennifer Owen indicating that  tankers   loaded   with   liquid  natural gas may soon be  moving regularly in and out of  Howe Sound. Owen stated that  Dome Petroleum Ltd. has  recently concluded ��� deal to  supply liquid natural gas to  Japan. One proposal currently  under study by the Company,  Owen said, would see LNG  brought by pipeline from  Alberta to Britannia, where  Dome owns 500 acres, to be  loaded aboard tankers bound  overseas.  Owen quoted a number of  official reports, including a  1978 Department of Fisheries  study that rates Britannia "one  of the riskiest ports in all of  Washington and B.C.", and all  of which pointed out the high  risk involved in the loading of  Thc usual prize of 55.00 will bt awarded to the first name drawn  from the barrel which correctly locates the above.

Guett Where Mallbag  Coast News,  Gibsons  Your "Guess Where" picture  in the Coast News dated  November 25, is located at  Cape Cockburn, on S.W.  Corner of Nelson Island. The  property there is the former  home of late Mr. L.H. Roberts,  and was known as "Sunray".  The boat shown as a derelict  was the 3rd Chak-Chak, built  by Mr. Roberts, and was to be  known as Chak-Chak HI.  Due to his old-age and  problems of caring for the boat,  it was never launched, eventually dry-rot set in and the  boat was abandoned.  I personally worked on the  construction of this ship and it  is a sad story.  Yours truly,  C.J. Merrick,  Roberts Creek, B.C.  Highways says Elphie  crosswalk 'not needed9  by Maryanne West  Presenting his concern for the need for a crosswalk between  Elphinstone and Andy's Drive-In to the School Board, Ben  LePage refused to be put off by the negative attitude of the  Department of Highways.  "We do not consider a crosswalk is warranted nor would it be  utilized properly", Highways was quoted as saying.  LePage expressed himself as 'willing to paint it himself, if  necessary'.  Chairman Douglas replied that the Board has approached the  Department of Highways on several occasions, and that a  crosswalk in front of Elphinstone will have to be considered in the  larger aspect of pedestrian crossings at Sunnycrest.  Hopefully the department is giving thought to the control of  traffic and pedestrian use in the whole area and will act before a  tragedy occurs. In the meantime it was suggested that it would  help if speed limits were enforced.  LNG. Owen pointed out that a  loaded LNG tanker has the  explosive force of a I megaton  nuclear bomb and asked, "Do  we want these floating bombs  moving around in Howe  Soundr  The third presentation of the  meeting was the recently completed Gambier Island Preservation Society film "Gambier:  Island in Jeopardy". Introduced by retiring Gambier  Trustee Elspeth Armstrong,  the film illustrated the scope of  open-pit mining operations of a  size comparable to that which  20th Century Energy Corp. has  indicated might be established  on the island. In the course of  the film, which featured interviews with University of Victoria Chancellor Dr. Mctag-  gart-Cowan and Robert  "Relic" Clothier of the CBC  "Beachcombers" series, directors of summer camps on the  island, w (jo currently provide  an outdoor experience for  thousands of lower mainland  children each year, clearly  expressed their belief that such  heavy industrial activity would  be incompatible with the  activities now provided and  that the camps would deforced  to more remote locations.  Following the film, Armstrong pointed out that though  the Provincial government has  downplayed the possibility of a  mine, claiming the ore is too  low-grade to make mining  economically feasible, "the  government said the same thing  about the Bethlehem, Endako  and Brenda mines, now all  producing more than 20,000  tons per day."

BUYING PROPERTY ON THE SUNSHINE COAST  (Editor's Note: The lollowing series of articles were written by Mr. Dennis Shuttleworth, a practicing  engineer who now lives in Davis Bay. After retiring from the Royal Canadian Navy in 1970, he chose the  Sunshine Coast on which to settle. This choice was made after extensively studying possible locations from  throughout the world. Mr. Shutlleworth's findings coupled with his refreshing "engineer's" point of view are  as pertinent today as they were in 1970. Anyone wishing a reprint of this series in its entirety may obtain a  copy at Anderson Realty, Cowrie St., Sechelt, B.C.)  Though both are in climate zone 9a, there are some differences between Victoria  and here. The first is wind which strikes Victoria hard and often with an uninterrupted  buildup from the open Pacific, and whose effects are visible on every tree near the  sea. In our area, Mt. Elphinstone has a similar effect to a turbine blade and deflects a  lot of the wind to the greater comfort of all.  A thirty year average rainfall comparison shows Victoria with 26" per year while this  area is 37". Surprisingly, it takes Victoria 143 days to collect its 26", and only 129 for  the 37" to fall here. This gives an extra 14 days of dry weather to the Sunshine Coast.  The snow fall comparison shows little difference-11.5" for Victoria against 12"  here. All these figures are the average of the years 19311960 and may not reflect  future conditions if the California current continues to increase its temperature.  An infrequently asked question, but important to keen gardeners, is the number  of growing days per year. Plants stop growing at temperatures below 43 degrees F., so  the number of growing days has a large effect on the types of plants which can be  grown. The best estimate for this area is about 270 growing days per year or roughly  nine months.  So far, mosl of f he comparisons have come out in favor of the sunshine CoasI but in  one vital aspect we fare badly. This is the shape of the area, which is roughly 60miles  long with an average width of 2-3 miles. This makes it a nightmare for local  government, since all services will cosl their maximum, while serving a minimum of  people. A circular area is the cheapest, and a square is not too different. An identical  situation arises as a result of the shape of a house and a consequent change of  material and labour costs. This will be dealt with in detail later.  Assuming that the Sunshine Coast is to be the place for retirement, despite its one  or two disadvantages, the next step is a carefully chosen location. Nothing changes in  the selection process already described for large areas except the scale, the only thing  to point out is that there are several microclimates between Port Mellon and Egmont,  and three, even, between Gibsons and Sechelt. Anyone wishing a detailed scientific  explanation can write to the Agrometeorological Section of the Plant Research  Divison, Department of Agriculture, Ottawa, Ont. For the rest of us, try a winter drive  Irom Gibsons to Davis Bay and spot the weather changes at Gibsons cemetery and  near McCullough Rd. at Wilson Creek. It would be interesting and useful to know if it  was always this way or whether, and when, there has been a change in these points.  Next let us look at the things which make the difference between a good lot and a  poor one.  Since this is not an attempt to sell anything, there will be no mention of specific  areas. Instead, it will discuss the fundamental principles, and leave the reader to  decide whether to apply or reject them on the next lot hunting trip.  Surprisingly, the first principle is the solidity of the ground itself. Well designed  structures stay up, in part, because the ground beneath them is capable of taking their  weight. An obvious case would be a lot in a swamp under five feet of water. The  answers would be to drain the swamp, build a very large "mattress" foundation to  spread the load, or do what the great Isambard Brunei did at London docks, and  designthe building as a ship. All these solutions are very expensive and beyond the  normal purpose.  Another example of unsafe ground is often seen on steep slopes. All ground tends  to lie at its own natural angle for its type, which engineers call the angle of repose. If  this angle is increased by cutting away earth, or by undercutting by tide or flood, there  is an ever present risk of a slide with often fatal results. Such conditions have, and do  occur on the Sunshine Coast and your local planner, buildinginspector, surveyor and  some real estate agents have been approached with a view to a meeting to devise an  incident map of such occurrences and make it available for inspection.
