">:  ;m-  '���j 'V;vV  Leslie Brown won his seat  Sechelt Council with a landslide victory in the alder-  manic by-election on Saturday  May 3. Brown was elected  with 122 votes, while opponent  Vic Walters trailed far behind  with 12.  The swearing-in ceremony  will be held on Monday,  May 5, and Brown will be  sitting in on his first council  meeting on Wednesday of this  week.  Surprised by the margin of  the victory himself, Brown  told the Coast News that  he will begin his term by  getting a good understandilng  of the workings of council  before going ahead with his  platform.

Pollution mounts  Pender Harbour declared abeyed area  Pender Harbour has unofficially been declared an  'abeyed area' by the BC Pollution Control Board. Area  A Director Joe Harrison announced the Board's decision  at the April 24 meeting  of the regional board, adding,  'We've been waiting for this  for a long time.'  Director Harrison was referring to the long history of the  problem of increasing cnllform  counts resulting from raw  and barely treated sewage  dumped directly Into the waters around Pender Harbour.  'The problem really began  about fifteen years ago,'  Harrison told the Coast News.  'At that time these waters  supported a considerable  shellfish industry, but In the  course of a number of surveys  conducted over the years by  the Federal and Provincial  governments, It was discovered that the collform counts  were rising. Even a very  low collfonn count can make  shell  fish  unsafe  and   now  there  is  only  one  operator   ces  left in thc area.  'The problem was caused in  part,' Harrison said, 'by the  fact that the PubUc Health  Laws which stringently  restrict the amount of untreated or partially treated sewage  that may be introduced  into lakes and rivers, do not  apply   to   bays   and   Inlets.  'Salt water pollution comes  under the Pollution Control  Board,' Harrison said, 'and  the Board's objectives have  always been more liberal than  Public Health Laws. The  Public Health authorities have  done a lot to reduce the number of houses dumping  raw sewage directly Into the  water. These were mostly  older houses built on bedrock  where proper sewer or septic  facilities would be expensive  and inconvenient. Their  number has been reduced  from 39 to around 10.'  Harrison pointed out that It  had been the Pollution Control  Board's policy to issue llcen-  where groups of houses  in a development share a common sewer line, to permit  the dumping of partially  treated sewage.  'What It means,' Harrison  said Ms that the sewage Is  ground up finer so It will be  diffused more readily In the  water. In practice, in a harbour or bay area like this,  it doesn't do much to reduce  the collform count, and when  the count goes up you have to  start worrying about people  swimming in It.'  By designating the area as  an abeyed area, the Pollution  Control Board Indicates that  they recognize that a problem  exists and will issue no new  licences for sewage outfalls  into Pender Harbour.  'We were a little worried  about the unofficial part of  the decision,' said Harrison,  'but the Board has tamed  down one or two applications  for licences since, so It looks  as though they Intend to  stand by their decision.'  Harrison credited the efforts  of local groups and the full  support of the Regional  Board, as well as the concern demonstrated by members of the Pollution Control  Board, for the decision.  At accident inquest  Manufacturer blamed  A three day inquest was  held in Vancouver last week  into the September 30 crash of  a Twin Otter in Porpoise Bay.  The accident claimed the lives  of pilot Brian Rodney and  Montreal man Ralph Grimm  and injured 14 others on  board.  On Thursday after six  hours deliberation, the jury  presented     Chief     Corner  Dr. William McArthur with  their six-page verdict, a brief  he described as being one of  the most thoughtful ever presented in B.C. It seemed to  attribute blame to the aircraft  manufacturer, de Havilland.  Evidence was presented  showing that the weather  was perfect on the day of the  icrash and that the crew did  everything possible to avert  It didn't take the Sechelt Fire Department long to put out the fire at the shake mill in Wilson Creek. The fire  started in a motor on the conveyor belt to the sawdust burner. Damage was estimated at around $3,000.  the disaster. The verdict  stated that the reason for the  crash was stress corrosion of  the aileron control rod, which  caused it to break during the  approach, sending the aircraft out of control. This decision was based on the technical evidence given by Terry  Heaslop of Transport Canada.  Heaslop also gave evidence  during the inquest into September 2, 1978 crash of the  Twin Otter in Coal Harbour.  The 1978 crash killed 11 people and was attributed to  metal corrosion of a flap-rod.  The findings of the jury  showed that the West Coast  Air Services plane involved in  the Sechelt crash had been  properly maintained and the  fault lay with the manufacturers and the federal transport who last year decided this  type of aircraft was safe to fly.  The recommendations from  the inquest were: that the  Canada Transport Commission adopt a procedure whereby compulsory landings arc  replaced by fly-overs, when no  passengers or luggage are to  be picked up or dropped off;  that the federal transport  minister conduct a departmental review into why corrective measures on Twin  Otter control rods were not  undertaken until February  1980, when it was known in  July 1979 a serious problem  existed; that the director  general of civil aeronautics  amend inspection procedures to make sure stress corrosion cracking can be detected in all flight controls  that do not have back-up  systems.  canal became an issue in  the by-election, he is still  enthusiastic about the water-  Leslie Brown  way.  He re-iterated that the project must be self-liquidating  before it is a feasibility.  A brochure was recently  prepared by Stuart Lefeaux,  a past superintendent of  parks. This shows that a  feasibility study would cost  $37,500. This is $12,500  below what was originally  estimated.  The brochure has been  forwarded to Victoria and  has been looked upon favourably in the initial stages,  according to Mayor Boucher.  It will now be forwarded  to the Ministry of Highways before being presented  in the House.  The Mayor feels that construction of a Sechelt Canal  would be a terrific boost  to the economy and would  have the cash registers  jingling more than ever  before.  Something for everyone  Inter-Action Auction  by John Moore  There's literally going to be  something for everybody at  the Sunshine Coast Arts Council's Inter-Action Auction May  24. The auction will be held  from 12.30 to 6.00 in Elphinstone Gym and, whatever your  taste, you're sure to find  something to bid on from a-  mong the incredible range of  goods, services and works of  art scheduled to go up on the  block.  The Inter-Action Auction  has already achieved the  status of a major community e-  vent, embracing the whole  Sunshine Coast, organizer Joy  Graham told the Cost News.  "The response has been terrific," Graham said. "In addition to all the services and  goods contributed, we've acquired two new $100 Patron  Memberships in the Arts  Council; one from the Gibsons  Lions Club, thanks to Ken De-  Vries, and another from Canadian Forest Products."  Like the limelight? Beachcombers producer Hugh  Beard has invited a family to  bid on "a day on the set of the  Beachcombers", including  lunch. Or, if you prefer the  other side of the footlights,  Robert "Relic" Clothier will  take two people to the theatre  in  Vancouver.   Something  a  little more intimate? How  about dinner for two in the  company of Beachcombers  star Bruno Gerussi? Or dinner  and dancing with popular Regional Board member, Harry  Almond?  For those who love to dine  out, there are myriad opportunities; from dinner for four  at Mr. Mikes, dinner for two  at the Parthenon Restaurant  or Lord Jim's Lodge to home-  cooked meals in the company  of some of the Coast's finest  cooks or even a catered gourmet dinner for six in your own  home.

S24 per year *&���,  Distributed Free lo all addresses on the Sunshine Coast  In a barbaric time  It seems that the world is turning ever  more towards acts of terrorism as a means  of forwarding its causes. It is easy to point  to the Iranian seizure of the American  Embassy in Tehran as another high water  mark in the rising tide of violence and in  truth in breaking the traditional immunity  of embassies the Iranians have seemingly  moved us another notch along the path to  barbarism. Nor has their example waited  long for emulation. Within the first  months since the Iranians seized the  American Embassy similar actions have  taken place in Central America and in  London, England.  These embassy seizures follow terrorist  actions in many parts of the world but on  reflection such actions are scarcely to be  wondered at. We have noted before that  the Second World War was a giant step  forward in the politics of terror. Of course,  in previous conflicts throughout history  the innocent non-combatants had with  great frequency been barbarically treated.  It took Adolf Hitler, however, to combine  the lethal mechanized terrors of modern  war with the systematic assault on non  combatants as a principal means of waging  war. Nor should it be forgotten, before we  dissolve into our customary puddles of  self-righteousness, that the Allies in the  Second World War were not slow to reply  in kind. The fire-bombing of Dresden and  the mass and indiscriminate assaults on  other German cities were a testament that  Hitler's way of waging war was now the  accepted way. This impersonal terrorism  in that conflict came to a climax in the  atomic bombing of Hiroshima and  Nagasaki, Japanese cities which seemed to  have, been left unscathed prior to the  August, 1945, attacks, perhaps that the  effectiveness of the new generation of  weapons of terror could be better gauged.  The development of the sophisticated  methods of waging aerial warfare over vast  distances with weapons of destructions too  terrible to contemplate and this apparently  universal acceptance of the terrorization  and annihilation of civilian populations  has brought us to the present balance of  terror under which we have lived our  uneasy lives for the last thrity-five years.  When we decry the Iranians who seized  the American hostages, or the Irish who  wage their interminable and tragic war by  terrorist means against their own people in  the name of Christ, or any of the other  fanatics and madmen who seek by  maiming and killing to make philosophic  points, we would do well to consider that  those responsible have grown to adulthood  in a world in which the slaughter of  univolved bystanders has become the way  that international conflicts are waged.  How can we judge the benighted souls who  plant bombs in market places when the  governments of the supposedly most  enlightened countries ofthe world prepare  to commit such acts on a scale so vast and  frightening as to be beyond our comprehension?  It is a fact that by our customary silence  do we condone these terrible and tragic  truths and by that silence do we endanger  the lives of our children and the children of  our children. Terrorism and barbarism are  everywhere seemingly on the rise and it is  so because mankind lets it be so, because  we allow ourselves to be persuaded that the  unending gross insanity of a world that  spends many, many times more of its  wealth on weapons of ultimate destruction  than it does on supplying food for the  increasingly hungry is acceptable because  we are told that it is unavoidable. Like  puppets on the strings of our fears and our  greed do we dance to our destruction.  The world of man's fears and greed,  however, is not the only world we know.  There is yet the month of May with its  growing light and warmth, it's promise of  life in full resurrection after the dark. And  so quite correctly we turn our attention to  the glories of the season. We tend our'  gardens and watch the garden of the wild  unfold its eternal greenery and its flowers  of hope.  If the march towards death seems all-  compelling, yet the forces that tug towards  and into life are equally strong and we may  yet hope that the darkness of barbaric  terror which seems on the ascendancy  may not be as irrevocable as it seems. We  may yet hope that we will yet emerge, as do  the seasons, into the sunshine of sanity and  kindliress of a peaceful world. If the path  towards such a world seems to be beyond  us now it is still our duty and our right to  yearn towards it and to question and  oppose all those forces that impel us  elsewhere.  .from the files of the COAST NEWS  r &  '"''e^riijnipei^j  FIVE YEARS AGO  Gibsons council announced Tuesday night six lots along Prowse Road  have been purchased by the village for  the purpose of park and marina  development.

Last year's school tax rate was 17.53  mills. This year's is set for 17.52 mills.  TWENTY-FIVE YEARS AGO  Four new homes valued at $3,000  each will be built in Gibsons this year.

The 4-masted bark JOHN ENA was built by R. Duncan and Company of  Glasgow in 1892. The steel hulled vessel, 312 feet in length, and  registered at 2842 tons, derived its name from that of a Honolulu  merchant. Fred Betsworth, who spent much of his life on tow boats, says  that he saw a print of this view in the studio of Leonard Frank on  Granville Street in the 1920's. It is possible that the famous  photographer hacHravelled to San Francisco to capture the towering  ship under sail at the Golden Gate. Captain Herbert Raby, who received  a copy of the photo from the family of a mariner who had known the  craft, infers from the slightly slack canvas that it is under tow by a  harbour tug. Throughout the Pacific Northwest, by the time the JOHN  ENA was scrapped in 1934, both sail and its first competitor, steam,  were being replaced by the diesei motor. Photo courtesy  Captain Herbert Raby. L.R. Peterson  Musings  John Burnside  Slings & Arrows  George Matthews  It was a business appointment in the city and I was not  only on time, I was early. I  was not only early but I had  gone to some effort to tidy up  my customarily rumpled and  vaguely disreputable persona  for the occasion. The tattered  sneakers were discarded in  the car and the dress shoes  substituted. A comb had been  secreted about my person for  the purpose of rendering into  brief order my rebellious and  impossible hair.  Thus polished and presentable I arrived at the office in  one of the imposing black  towers in downtown Vancouver, announced myself to  the receptionist, and settled  down in a comfortable leather chair with the sports page  of the Province, quite content  to while away the 20 minutes  or so till my appointment with  the reports of the Stanley Cup  playoffs and the occasional appreciative glance at the very  attractive receptionist.  With such simple pleasures  was I prepared to be content  but it was not to be. Within  seconds of my settling my  name was boomed out by a  stentorian male voice and I  was apprised of the fact that a  presence was imminent. Following the voice by a few seconds around the corner came  its owner. He was a surprisingly small and delicately  boned individual in a dark  business suit whose appearance seemed to bear little relation to the sergeant major's  tones which had preceded it.  He seized my hand and  pumped it vigorously as I unwound from the comfortable  chair with pieces of newspaper  scattering around me and in  the same motion virtually propelled me into his office.  There was only time for an  apologetic glance at the recep  tionist about the newspapers  and suddenly 1 was in conference.  About the actual meeting  there is little that need be  said. Three times in approximately 15 minutes I was informed by my fast-talking host  that he was the 'head honcho'  in this establishment and  when he said Mump", all  within earshot jumped, and  I'm afraid that long before the  conference was over I fell to  musing about the pretensions of power and its effects  on the practitioner and those  around him���or her as the  case may be, though I have  not yet met a bombastic woman who would inform a plurality of times that she was the  head honcho during the first  conversation. Perhaps such a  woman executive exists in  these liberated times but I  trust that 1 may be allowed to  be old fashioned enough to  hope not.  What 1 would try to do here  is consider power, its illusions  and the efficacy with which it  can be exercised. Though a  newcomer to the world of business, I have been a student of  power and its practitioners  virtually all of my thinking  life. As a schoolboy I studied  my teachers. I watched how  they conducted themselves.  As a teenager working with  the executives of the Canadian  National Railways I studied  my bosses. As a schoolteacher  I watched myself exercise authority and watched the administrators exercise power  within the educational system.  In my readings in history I  studied the careers of notable  head honchos of the past and  I considered the while.  I believe that withal I have  discovered an anomaly. It  | would appear that most people  and  virtually  all   'head  honchos' or managerial types  believe it is only through the  efforts of a strong man in a  position of unquestioned  authority that anything approaching order can be a-  chieved and yet history informs us that total authority  inevitably leads to total abuse,  much suffering and inevitable disaster. The system  that we are prepared to die for  would seem to be a system  which believes that power  must ultimately originate in  the people and that people  living and working in conditions of maximum freedom are  people who will achieve more  in the long haul.  My own puny perceptions  seem to bear this out. As  school children, I thought we  worked harder in those situations where the yoke of authority was lightly applied. In  the CNR i noted that the effectiveness of the Napoleonic  leaders was effective only in  their immediate vicinity, as  thc circle grew wider whatever stimulus was available  from dictatorship tended rather to leak out and the final  effect was an apathetic staff  which kept out of the tyrant's  way even if that exercise  meant a total absence of initiative and a dimunition of  energy. As a schoolteacher in  various parts of the country I  saw vigorous and authoritarian new brooms come and  go. In a year or so they will  succeed in reducing the  teaching staff under their control to a relatively faceless  mass, order will be seen to be  established, but there will  soon manifest themselves the  little rebellions. Vandalism  against things in a climate of  fear is the most notable reaction of a student body. The  teachers withdraw into a cyni-  Pleasc turn to Page Three.  Just how desperate the  American hostage problem is  was demonstrated last week  when President Carter, driven  to the point of frustration in  attempting to negotiate a  settlement, tried to pull a John  Wayne rescue which tailed  miserably. On the surface of il,  it seemed like a pretly dumb  idea; of course had he managed  to sneak the hostages away  wilh no one getting hurt, it  might not have appeared to be  ridiculous alter all.  There's not much question ol  the fact that the whole crisis has  developed out of a massive  failure to communicate. After  nearly six months of talking, il  looks very much like ihe  Americans have no idea what's  on ihe Iranians' minds. For  their part. I don't think the  Iranians have been much more  successful in candling Ihe  Americans' skulls.  Perhaps the most difficult  aspect ol the whole affair stems  from the fact thai lor all of their  technology, expertise and experience in foreign affairs. Ihe  American government simply  does not have anyone of  equivalent stature lo the Ayatollah Khomeini. The Ayatollah. lor all of his spiritual  leadership and dedication to  the cause of Islam is basically  an intolerant religious fanatic.  Certainly no one in the Ivy  league���bound State Department can match that, and the  truth is that President Carter  may be looking in the wrong  place lor a man who can  understand and be understood  by Ihe Ayatollah. What Carter  needs is a man who has both the  same degree of dogmatic  intolerance and a similar pipeline lo the Lord as Khomeini  himself.  In all of America, there may  be only one such man, America's answer to the Ayatollah,  the Reverend Gerry Falwell.  That the Reverend Gerry has  credibility with the Lord is a  demonstrated tact. He has just  about the biggest electronic  congregation in the entire  evangelical world. He can  communicate with thc Almighty by prayer, by mail, by  radio, by television and even,  praise the Lord, by satellite.  The Ayatollah for all of his  religious zeal doesn't even  come close to Gerry Falwell for  being in touch with the deity.  As far as downright, redneck intolerance, Gerry is a  match lor anybody. If it was up  to the good reverend he would  annihilate every non-christian,  wrong thinking, liberal creep  from gays to anyone who  drilled away from Ihe sanctity  of the missionary position. He  would have women in the  house and out ofthe office and  he would evangelize the country from stem lo siern.  A cleverer politician than  Mr. Carter would take advantage of Ihe similarities between  Falwell and the Ayatollah and  would send Ihe Reverend Gerry  on a mission lo Iran to discuss  the whole hostage question.  When the Arabs captured  Jerusalem back in the 8th  Century, the Europeans didn't  send any posh, educated diplomats to solve the problems,  they sent a whole pack of  Christian killers to show the  infidels what was up. if Mr.  Falwell was sent on a similar  crusade, he would show those  Moslems just what side of the  Lord the American people are  on.  Falwell and Khomeini would  understand each other right  away; there would be no doubt  about what they both wanted;  communication would be instant and perfect. Neither  gentleman wants the gover-  ment to meddle in the Lord's  business; neither sees anything  wrong with the Lord's servants  messing with politics. Both  Gerrv and Khomeini would  Please turn to Page Three.  _s_sa______  ___________ Nuclear threat to Canada  Coast News, May 6,1980  3.  by William Epstein  William Epstein is a Special  Fellow of the United Nations  Institute for Training and Research. He was formerly Director of the Disarmament Division of the United Nations  and is retained from time to  time as a Special Consultant  on Disarmament by the Secretary-General. He is a Visiting  Professor at the University of  Victoria in British Columbia  and at Carleton University in  Ottawa. His latest book is The  Last Chance: Nuclear Proliferation and Arms Control.  Most Canadians, if asked  about Trident, would say that  il had something to do with  Ihe sea in ancient Greek mythology, and that Bangor was a  town in Maine. To residents of  British Columbia, however,  these are dreaded names that  cause them to fear for the  future. "Trident" is the name  of a new generation of American nuclear submarines that  will fire long range strategic  missiles (also called Trident),  to be based at Bangor on  Puget Sound in the State of  Washington. The Trident submarine is the greatest killing  machine in all history, the  most devastating instrument  of mass destruction ever conceived by man to be scheduled  for actual production. And  the Trident base at Bangor  will be the greatest nuclear  base in the entire world.  What has this to do with  Canada? And doesn't this  most powerful nuclear arsenal in the world help to make  Canada more safe and secure?  In my opinion the answer is  definitely no, although  Canadian political leaders  keep saying the contrary, and  base their statements on unsound arguments that merely  echo the views of U.S. militarists. Canada should be insisting that the United States  abandon the Trident program  or at least move the base away  from Bangor. But the Canadian government officially  supports the Trident program  and the Bangor base.  There is a ferment in British  Columbia and in Washington  State to try to stop the completion ofthe Bangor base and  the Trident program. Environmentalists in the United States  have begun a lawsuit seeking  an injunction against it, and  have begun a popular campaign in a desperate effort to  convince the people of Washington State and the government in Washington, D.C.  that the program is unnecessary and harmful. In British  Columbia a motion has been  introduced into the provincial  parliament expressing disapproval of thc program. Hearings will be held at the next  session of the legislature, and  it is reported in the press that  a majority of members will  vote in favour of it. A group of  activists known as the Pacific  Life Community; interested in  promoting a peaceful, sane  and healthy world, has led the  movement in Canada to stop  the Trident submarine. They  have organized protest meetings, trips to Ottawa and civil  disobedience at the Bangor  construction site. A number of  their members have gone to  jail  for trespass and  other  charges related to the campaign. They hope that, if  Canadian public opinion is  sufficiently aroused and the  British Columbia legislature  adopts a resolution against  Trident, it might be possible  to get the Canadian government to protest to the American government about the Trident nuclear threat to Canada.  In this way they think they can  strengthen the Americans in  the state of Washington and  elsewhere who oppose the Trident submarine.  Stuart Leggatt, the MP for  New Westminster and NDP  defence critic, has tried unsuccessfully to initiate a debate on the subject in parliament. Both James Richardson, (the former Minister of  Defence) and Barney Danson,  (the present Minister) have repeatedly said that the Trident  submarine program is in the  interest of the defence of the  United States, of Canada and  ofthe whole western world. Is  this really so? The issue is  complicated and needs careful explanation and analysis.  To be continued.  West neglected  from thc Office of  Ray Skelly, MP  OTTAWA - By failing to deal  with the serious economic  problems of western Canada,  the throne speech shows thc  federal Liberals arc prepared to  risk even greater western  alienation for short term  political goals, Ray Skelly, New  Democrat MP for Comox-  Powell River, said today.  "One paragraph telling us to  behave ourselves is tacked on  to the end of the speech and  that is all they have to say to  us," he said.  Skelly said he is particularly  unhappy that the speech gives  no indication interest rates will  be lowered or brought under  control. "The single most  important economic problem  of the West, high interest rates,  has been ignored," he said.  "Encouraging small business,  farmers and fishermen to  borrow more���as the speech  suggests���does not solve their  credit problems. It will simply  increase indebtedness."  Skelly said it is "sad" to read  in the throne speech a promise  to improve port facilities only a  few weeks after Transport  Minister Jean Luc Pepin  dashed hopes for the Prince  Rupert port construction. "If  the Liberals are serious about  transportation and about attending to the needs of the  West, they would have reversed  Mr. Pepin's position," he said.  "The fact is not one single  new job is created by this  document outside of some civil  service positions in the four  new agencies they are going to  create," Skelly said. "I don't  know when the Liberals will  realize that the jobs aren't  needed in Ottawa. They are  needed in the regions that have  serious unemployment.

Money raised by the Auction will go in part toward  improvements at the Arts  Centre in Sechelt, but much of  it will be passed back into the  community in the form of  grants to the numerous arts  and crafts groups on the Coast  and individual scholarships  sponsored by the Arts Council.

I am  certainly content enough with  it. She seldom eats herself but  takes lea with me and, when the  mood strikes her and her mind  is clear, tells me more stories  about her youth.There is an  upright piano in the living-  room and she indicates it wilh  Ihe gesture of a withered hand.  "That's mine, you know. I was  training to be a concert pianist  from the time 1 was only a bit  of a girl. They said 1 had real  talent and I did play well, if I do  say so. Hut then 1 met Mr.  Pressford. We emigrated to  Canada from Liverpool and  ended up in this godforsaken  place. Oh. Mr. Pressford made  a fair wage with is carpentering  but we were never what you  could call well off. But that was  the end of my musical ambitions. 1 bought that piano  there as soon as we could afford  it and I used lo keep up with my  playing. But," she holds up the  sad arthritic hand again, "1  can't play anymore. My fingers  won't go where I want them  to."  I tell her that this story  reminds me of my own grandmother's. She was a concert-  violinist who also abandoned  her aspirations for marriage. I  do not tell her lhat my grandmother's wedding led her to  considerably cheerier and more  affluent circumstances than  these. "Women! We're all a  pack of fools," declares Mrs.  Pressford wistfully.  After breakfast, unless it is a  chore-day, she hands me a  dollar and sends me about my  questionable business. Sometimes, she slips mc a two but  whether by error of design, I  can never decide. Usually, 1  check in at the rooming house  and write for awhile if 1 am'  feeling ambitious. Too often, I  head up to Granville Street and  cadge drings around the bars  with the rest of the ten-cent  philosophers. What Mrs. Pressford does wilh her days,I  haven't Ihe vaguest idea. 1 am  only a night-watchman there.  There arc always one or Iwo  cases of beer in Mrs, Press-  lord's broom closet. She is  supposed to have two bottles a  day, no more, and she seems to  prefer them luke-warm, English style. She frequently invites  me to have a couple with her  (for medicinal purposes only,  of course.) I must confess lhat 1  occasionally pilfer the odd  bottle too. She is on an honour-  system about nol exceeding her  two-bottle quota and she  generally keeps to this.  One chilly evening, 1 return  to the house early, hoping to  watch Route 66 and a couple of  other shows on their television  set. As I conn up the front  stairs, I am startled to hear Ihe  piano being played in anything  but a tentative fashion. Great,  rolling, authoritative chords  resound through the echo-  chamber ofthe house. Quietly,  I let myself in. Mrs. Pressford  sits at the upright with her back  to me, her time-cramped hands  moving wilh magic certainly  over the keyboard. It is totally  foreign to her usual behaviour  and I have some suspicions as  to its inspiration. Tip-toeing  through to the kitchen, I  discover six newly-empty bottles in ihe cupboard. My God,  thc old lady has gone on a  bender! How are you supposed  to deal with a drunken ninety-  four-year-old woman. I don't  even try. I simply sit in the  darkened kitchen and let her  play. It is an amazing performance. The stange concert  continues for perhaps twenty  minutes. Suddenly she stops,  having apparently played herself sober, closes the lid quietly  and shuffles off to bed, muttering inaudibly. She seems to  have no inkling that I am there.  After a decent interval, I sneak  up the stairs myself and crawl  between Ihe cold sheets, still  marvelling.  1 spend little time at the  rooming-house during Ihis  period apart from my sporadic  writing-spurts or to fashion  slapdash chcapjack mulligan-  stews from weiners or chopped-  up Spam.

They'll be cutting those  light off again for sure. Thai  bloody man of mine!"  Mrs. Pressford is generally  an amenable woman and treats  me with considerable kindness  but sometimes senility throws  her mind out of kilter and she  has bad days. One morning. I  come downstairs lo find her  already up and abusively  irrational. "Where is my gold  watch" she demands. She has  mislaid it somewhere and is  convinced that I must have  robbed her. While I am certainly not above filching the  odd bottle of beer or can of  soup from her, I draw Ihe line  at money or valuables. Despite  my flat denials however, she  continues to harrangue me. I  have a nagging hangover and  am feeling none too reasonable myself. "Get out of my  house, you thief!" she orders  finally. 1 tell her 1 will be only  too glad lo go. 1 phone her  other daughters first to tell  them 1 cannot cope with her.  Then I collect my few belongings and head back to the  rooming-house in a huff.  To be continued.  WORKERS9  COMPENSATION.  NOT USING IT  GOULD COST  YOUR BUSINESS  A BUNDLE.  With all the other problems  of operating a small business, it's  sometimes easy to put off or  overlook the responsibility of  ensuring that your business is  protected by the Workers'  Compensation Board.  And that could be one of  the most expensive omissions  you ever made.  Because, if one of your  workers is involved in an on-  the-job accident, you would  be liable for the entire  cost of his injuries and  rehabilitation���a cost that  could be many times that of  compensation coverage.  Don't risk it. A simple phone  call or visit to any W.C.B. office will  give you all the information you  need about compulsory or elective  coverage. You'll find that, for a  small cost, you can buy a big piece  of "peace of mind".  EMPLOYEES: if you're not sure  about your coverage, discuss  this ad with your employer  or call the Assessment  Department in your nearest  W.C.B. office.  SQX&XXQ  Chance (Peter Sellers), the gardener, tends his  well kept garden in United Artists' "Being  There."  At the Twilight  Two truly remarkable films  arc on display at the Twilight  Theatre this week. Wednesday through Friday, May 7-9,  Ihe moving story of a family  in trouble, Kramer vs. Kramer  completes its week-long run  at the Twilight Theatre.  Among many fine performances, Kramer vs. Kramer  features an Oscar-winning  performance from Dustin  Hoffman in a role seen to  be as brilliant as anything  this gifted actor has yet done  on screen.  The second film of the week  is described as a 'thinking  man's comedy' and features  a bravura performance from  that other giant of the big  screen. Peter Sellers.  Sellers is seen as a completely illiterate gardener named  Chance who understands  nothing in the movie Being  There. The role Is seen by  many to be Sellers' finest of  a long and remarkable career.  In a complete about-face  from his usually broad farce,  Sellers is a master of understatement and timing, playing  Chance without makeup or  expression, Dressed in  1920's suits and carrying an  umbrella, Sellers moves  stiffly with childlike mannerisms. His performance  is impeccable.  Splendid too are co-stars  Mervyn Douglas and Shirley  MacLaine.  Director Hal Ashby has  created a richly photographed  and graceful comedy that  is wonderfully perceptive.  Sellers alone is worth the price  of admission.  Being There will be shown  locally Saturday through  Tuesday, May 10-13.

He is a  drunk of legendary proportions. When his luck is running, he plays the horses for  a living. When it isn't, he  spends his time getting fired  from every menial soul-destroying job in the book.  Through it all he takes notes,  recording the lost weekends  that turn into months, the lost  women found in bars and lost  again, jobs lost because he  couldn't pretend to take them  seriously, money lost on  horses that ran too slow.  I became vaguely aware of  Bukowski as a poet in thc sixties. He was then being "discovered" by the American  counterculture. Born in Germany in 1920 and brought to  the U.S. when he was two,  he'd published his first stories  in the forties, somehow  missed being discovered by  the Beat dlllentantes of the  fifties, (they found William  Burroughs, but they missed  Bukowski) and surfaced in the  sixties as the unheraled underground genius of American  letters.  For a time, Bukowski wrote  a column for a number of underground newspapers under  the banner "Notes of a Dirty  Old Man", but he never quite  achieved full status as a counterculture hero. He frankly admits that his only interest in  the underground papers of the  sixties was the fact that they  would publish him when  hardly anyone else would, and  their potential as a source of  free booze and young women,  i Post Office (Black Sparrow  Press. 1971. $4) is Bukowski's  tale of his 11 year on-and-off  relationship with the U.S.  Postal Service, its demented  bureaucrats, sadistic supervisors and grovelling underlings, all trying to cut each  other's throats in the competition for the misfit's dream;  the security of a government  job. Starting out as a part-time  delivery man, a job he enjoys  in spite of the dogs and the  public, who call him Uncle  Sam, demand to know why he  never brings anything but  bulls, offer to fight him, and  beg him for mail out of terminal loneliness, Bukowski's  alter-ego, Henry Chinaski,  works his way up to postal  clerk.  All he wants is a steady job  to support his steady drinking, but he soon finds out that  the price of security is high; he  is expected to care deeply a-  bout something it is humanly  impossible to care about, the  hierarchy of the bureaucracy  itself. Daily contact with the  tortured souls who have twisted themselves into the shape  of the machine nearly drives  him mad.  The Postal Service appears  to have been Bukowski's only  brush with anything that could  be called a career. Factotum,  Astrology  (cont'd.)  alone.

February 20 birthdays have much to shout a-  bout.  another novel, published in  1979, (also by Black Sparrow  Press. $5) chronicles Chin-  aski's non-career at a succession of insane jobs; a shipping clerk for failing businesses, puting up posters at the  risk of life, limb, and possible  electrocution in the New York  subways, bucking a hot assembly line in a dog biscuit  factory, picking fruit, packing  ladies dresses, and always,  within a few weeks, thc inevitable, "Chinaski. We have to  let you go. You understand."  Bukowski's writing is less a  descent into Hell than a guided tour by thc janitor of thc  place. Like William Burroughs  and Henry Miller, Charles  Bukowski is one of thc supreme American poetcs mail-  dlts; thc cursed poet compulsively celebrating his own disintegration. Yet what emerges  finally from Bukowski's writing is not a sense of disintegration, but an awesome resilience. The world may be  going mad, but Bukowski is  sane, lucid, self-indulgent in  his way of life, but not in his  writing.  William Burroughs often  bogs down in the science fiction special-effects of his u-  nique style, Miller is prone to  epic, panoramic flights of  lyricism that leaves his readers breathless and bewildered, but Bukowski is like- a  documentary film-maker. The  oddest thing about him is his  remarkable modesty on the  subject of his writing. Reading  his work, you only gradually  realize that the reason he fails  at everything else he does is  simply that he's a born writer.  Bukowski is refreshingly free  of self-righteousness on the  subject of his work, mercifully  so in these days when every  pipsqueak poet thinks he's in  thc running for gilt-edged  laurels and a government  stipend.  Bukowski, like Miller and  Burroughs, represents an interesting turnabout in American literature; from the old  Horatio Alger "hero as success" formula, still being  cranked out by graduates of  the Harold Kobbins School of  Writing for Big Bucks, to the  "hero as failure" theme that  has emerged fully over the  past Iwo decades. It was always there, lurking in the best  work of Ihe giants of the earlier half of the century, Fitzgerald and Hemingway, but at  least then, as in Bukowski's  best work, we were spared the  patronizing naivete that e-  roded the work of J.D. Salinger and continues to be a feature of the Kurt Vonnegut���  Richard Brautigan School of  How to Write Underground  Bestsellers for Big Bucks.  All for now.

It may took dandy  in the evening, after mowing  the lawn, to sprinkle everything. It gives the garden a  lovely fresh look and makes  the gardener feel better in  spite of the fact that a light  sprinkling does actual harm to  the plants. The plant roots are  reaching down for their  water. A light sprinkling puts  the water above them and they  turn back up to the surface to  receive it, in much the same  way as plants will lean towards the sun on a window  sill. When the plant roots become used to receiving surface water and are permanently turned up, along come the  real dog days of sprinkling  regulations and the poor  things just keel over. This is  simple logic. The deeper the  plant roots have to go for  water the better they are  able to handle drought conditions. A much better idea  is to make a habit of deep  watering and really soaking  one area and then doing the  same to the next area thus  encouraging the roots to  reach well down to the water  table.  This time of year I am often  approached by young people  developing their first thready  interest in gardening. All of a  sudden, winter's gone and  nearby homes are ablaze  with spring colour. The problem for newcomers to the  field is that they often start  with the more difficult plants  and the very expensive current bloomers, Azaleas, Rhododendrons et al. The best  thing for them to do for the  first year is simple but single  yellow Marguerites, giant  Marigolds for sun and  Im-  patiens for shady spots. (We  are presuming that they have  dug all the grass and weeds  out of a small gently curving  section.) This initial purchase  of annuals will give them  colour until frost and they can  spend the rest of their time  learning how to do their own  seeding and learning to match  the leaf shape to the plant. A  notebook is handy and when  you see something that you  really want you can make a  note of it and try to scrounge it  from a gardening friend or you  can buy one or two plants a  week, learning about their  habits as you go.  A first year garden rarely  amounts to much but filled  with Marguerites it can deceive the passing eye and incidentally provide the new gardener with a feeling of accomplishment and cut flowers for  the house.  For your first seeding efforts try Cosmos in a flat, or  cardboard box with store potting soil. Sprinkle the seeds  in damp potting soil and cover  with about 1/8 inch of the soil,  place in full sun and keep  damp. In this way you will not  become confused by other  little seeds that are springing up beside them, usually  weeds. Later on in your gardening career you will be able  to detect the difference in  leaf shape and be able to sow  directly in the garden. Buy  several packets of climbing  Nasturtium seeds and poke  these into the ground all over  the place beside fence posts,  gates and old stumps. As they  have a very distinctive round  leaf shape you are unlikely to  lose them and they will provide you with months of  willing colour.  Keep all these things deep  watered and with your notebook do lots of visiting and  friendly scrounging throughout the summer. Maintaining  constant colour throughout the  entire gardening season is  really a lot of work. It takes  forethought, memory, constant shuffling of plants and  really comes gradually  through experience and patience but it is a lovely, productive and creative way of  staying out in the sunshine  while we have it. So make a  stab at it, what have you got to  lose? Puttering is the most  fun but a real clean up gives  the most satisfaction.  Tips for cut flowers. Don't  forget to put a copper penny in  with cut Tulips to keep them  from drooping. When cutting  Oriental Poppies for indoors  remember to burn (cauterize)  the end of the stem with a  match to make them last.  Don't ask me why but both  these little known tricks work I  Happy Gardening.

Coast News, May 6, 1980  Value of the wild  Maryanne's viewpoint  by Maryanne West   Thc tiny country of Luxembourg tucked into a corner between France, Belgium and  Germany boasts some 3,000  miles of walking trails, although it is comparable in  size to the Sunshine Coast.  While national pride and a  love of their native hills and  valleys must be a strong motivating force, or they would  long ago have been permanently annexed by their more  powerful neighbours, the l.ux-  enibiinrgcrs explain that they  have to w'alk because the food  in their country is so good!!  Hence the network of trails  and facilities to park and walk.  Here as our trails become  gravel roads and then paved  highways, no longer pleasant  lor pedestrians and with continued pressure from thc Department of Highways for upgrading and even more ambitious projects, we are beginning to realize Ihe need for  walking trails.  The Village of Gibsons is to  be congratulated for having  sel aside within village boundaries land for park use and  having begun the process of  developing trails.  Last summer a group of students funded by a Canada  Summer works grant brushed  out the Ingall's trail from the  lower village up over the escarpment to the bottom of  Shaw Road.  It begins inauspiciously at  the north eastern corner of the  sewage plant and climbs  steeply in a series of ambitious  steps to the northwest corner,  then follows the western fence  for a short way offering an  overview of the plant, before  turning back on itself and resuming an upward momentum.  It's not really that steep,  but a couple of benches for  those with cither very young  or very old legs would be an  enhancement and some judicious trimming of lower branches and the careful removal  of selected Irees would provide vistas of the village,  Howe Sound and the North  Shore mountains, along the  way.  The path angles around the  shoulder of the escarpment  between fir, hemlock and cedar before reaching the young  alder growth on the top. Sal-  monberry and huckleberry  grow beneath the alder, a haze  of pale green, misting between the grey tree trunks,  the darker green of nettles begins to cover last years leaves  and dry grass, contrasting  with thc greenish-grey clumps  of frilled bleeding heart with  its dusty pink flowers and the  pale mauve stars of miner's  lettuce.  It's a pleasant walk, and  now is the time to enjoy the  ferns, lady-fern fiddle heads  uncoiling their lacy fronds,  stretching to the warm sunlight. Sword ferns, wraped in  silken fibres unfold like miniature elephant trunks from the  mossy sides of thc path.  It's not as breathtakingly  beautiful as Cliff Gilker Park,  but its a different habitat and  il will change over the years as  different species of trees mature. Those who visit the  Landing by boat can be encouraged to use it to reach the  facilities of the upper village and when funds and/or  volunteers are available the  trails can be extended on each  side o! ihe ravine offering a  circular walk. I was recently  delighted to discover that part  of the old trail up the south  side of the ravine and past  Chapman's property is,  though overgrown, still recognizable. For many years those  who lived on Pratt Road and  Gower Point came this way to  the village and it was a pleasant shady walk in the heat  of summer.  The village has also acquired seven acres of the Gibsons Creek ravine and there  are trails���with access from  the end of Crucil Road���but  with the burgeoning of spring  they are badly overgrown. But  the potential for a park with  pleasant shady walks beside  the creek is there. Here in the  wet bottom land among the  tangle of salmonberry grow  different plants, delicate deer  ferns opening tiny green fingers, devils club, a handsome,  if prickly plant, strongly  scented wild currant, all cushioned in thick moss, soft underfoot.  Behind Harmony Hall in the  bay area is a wedgeshaped  area, presently a more or less  impenetrable jungle but earmarked for a nature reserve, a  place for future shady walks,  cat-tailed fringed pools, an  oasis amid the suburban development for squirrels, maybe raccoon, for frogs and  wrens and woodpeckers, dra-  gonflies and red-winged  blackbirds.  As the land becomes tamed,  laid out in neat garden plots,  fenced and weeded, the bush  relentlessly pushed back to  make way for lilacs and magnolias and Japanese flowering  cherries, each surrounded by  manicured lawns, thc soul of  man will still demand the rampant glory of the native trees  and plants, growing in extravagant abundance, in joyful  celebration of the seasons.  The value of these wild  areas and trails within the village will increase in proportion to the population  growth and future residents  and visitors will pay tribute to  the foresight of those who laid  Ihe foundation for a network of  parks and quiet places within  the village.  Sechelt students  in clean-up  Grade Six student Cindy  Janowlck and Grade Seven  student Phillip Nelson of  Sechelt Elementary School  were guests of the Sechelt  Chamber of Commerce at  Its regular monthly meeting  held on Wednesday, May 30,  at the Parthenon Restaurant.  They addressed the Chamber  on the subject of litter cleanup in the village and explained that the week of May 5-10  bad been designated for this  purpose. Students from  Sechelt Elementary School  will be cleaning up in the village on May 7, or on May 8  In the event that May 7 Is wet.  The students, who were accompanied by Principal  Brian Butcher, were seeking  a contribution from the Chamber for their activities.  Chamber President Bud Koch  explained to the students  that a policy had been established not to make donations to organizations on  account of the impossibility  of meeting all requests received.

Allan Crane, who is co-ordinating the visit of the Long  Island Youth Symphony  Orchestra, gave the Chamber  brief details.  The orchestra which is  eighty-five to ninety strong,  was established in 1967  and it has toured extensively  including a recent tour of  Malaysia as guests of the  Kuala Lumpur Symphony  Orchestra. The visit to the  Sunshine Coast has been  made possible through the  good offices of the Festival  Concert Society and is being  arranged through the Eileen  Glassford Arts Foundation  John Nicholson, Superintendent of Instruction for  School District #;46(Sunshine  Coast)has kindly undertaken  to assist with billeting arrangements for the group,  and  some  funding  towards  the cost of transporting the  group from Vancouver and  back has been made available  able through Karin Hoemberg, the District Coordinator  of    Continuing    Education.  During the course of the  visit, the orchestra will  give, two concerts, one in  Sechelt and one in Gibsons.  Admission will be by donation, and it is proposed that  the proceeds will be divided  between the Sunshine Coast  Arts Council and the Eileen  Glassford Arts Foundation.  It is also possible that workshops for band students may  be arranged. Mr.Nicholson  will investigate this with band  teachers although the visit  will take place during the  school    summer    holidays.  The group is scheduled to  arrive here on July 4, and  they will depart on July 7.  * + :j: ���&(. # * :\-. t- * * * !  NDP  Gibsons H.ub. in *i  sk**********^.  fce��  SPRINGTIME  PLANTING  .

I am certain that  {'all the old world charm and  ', quaintness that I remember so  ;; fondly have disappeared, as  ijithey have in Vancouver. When  I;. I was there with Jim and even  jj.for quite a few years after, a  ���'half century ago, I knew the  r city well and fell in love with it  I and I once had the same  ! affection for Vancouver, but  { now, under the euphemism of  ' progress, all that has changed  j and 1 prefer to stay away. I had  | a brief stop over in Montreal  I when I came back from over-  ��� seas via New York and that was  ��� in the spring of 1946, but 1  ; haven't been back since and  j doubt that I ever will.  > Following Jim's departure  ' for Japan I stayed on at the  ; Sailors' Home for a few days  i but soon found myself in the  ' position that not only was I  ! completely broke and didn't  ' have the price, even although it  , was ridiculously low, for my  ' 'meals and bed, but also that it  was intolerable for me to  sponge indefinitely on the  others who stayed there. So  now began a grim struggle on  my part even to survive. I  simply just couldn't bring  myself to panhandle or beg on  the streets as many did, so for a  long period of time I simply  dispensed with eating what  could be classed as breakfasts,  lunches or dinners and existed  on what I could find by  scrounging along the docks,  lurking in alleys in the rear of  greasy spoon restaurants and  occasionally being invited on  board some ship for a handout  from some kind-hearted cook  or given a left-over sandwich by  an equally generous sailor who  took pity on me. Once in a  while a ship came in from the  southern climes���we called  thertthe Banana Boats���and,  pretending to be one of the  crew unloading, I managed to  make off with a whole stalk of  that delicious fruit which I hid  in some abandoned warehouse  and pecked away at for several  days, till it too was finished and  the weary hunt for grub  resumed.  The worst problem was  finding somewhere to sleep and  now that it was late fall the  nights were getting colder. I  slept in innumberable strange  places���in warehouses along  the docks, in sheds along the  adjoining railroad tracks and at  times In the quiet privacy of  some empty boxcar, unless  rudely disturbed by some  minion of the law.  All this went on for several  weeks and I had not only  become desperate but had gone  past that point when a rather  strange event occurred. Someone must have given me a  quarter as I had spent the  previous night in a 25c flophouse on a narrow street not far  from the place on Craig Street  where, once in a blue moon, a  few men were hired for construction work. I still had the  old army haversack but by now  the contents were few; a shirt, a  razor and a couple of pairs of  socks. When I came near the  latter place I observed two  trucks in front and a fairly long  line of men queued up. There  were perhaps 30 of them. So,  having nothing better to do at  the time and feeling dejected  and in somewhat of a daze, I  joined them till the tail gates  were lowered, an order was  barked to "Get going" and the  line started to move, embarking on to the trucks which  contained benches to sit on. I  never bothered to enquire  where they were going, what it  was all about or anything else.  In the state I was in to get  moving somewhere, I couldn't  have cared less. I just simply  clambered aboard.  There was a harassed looking little man who seemed to be  counting and checking on the  number getting into each truck.  He gave me, or I imagined he  did, a somewhat baleful stare  but said nothing. The first  truck moved off and the  second, in which I was seated,  followed. I shall never forget  the scene on the sidewalk as we  pulled away as the worried  looking character was engaged  in altercation with a burly  looking individual left behind  who, apparently not being able  to speak English, was waving  his arms and expostulating  with him and I fully expected a  fight to break out at any  moment. They were however,  still wrangling when we turned  a corner and they disappeared  from sight.  It turned out we were on our  way to High Falls, in the hilly  country near Buckingham,  Quebec, where a dam was being  built on the Lievre River and  later a power house was to be  constructed at the foot of the  falls. I am unsure if it was the  Dominion Construction Company that had the contract but I  do remember that the catering,  that is the feeding and housing  of the several hundred men  employed, was done by a firm  named Crawley & McCracken,  notorious in their day and  known as "gut robbers" of the  lowest order.  When we arrived at the site  the trucks pulled up in front of  a makeshift clapboard shack  which housed both the office  and a commissary. Told to get  out and form a double line, we  did so and then were admitted  two at a time to sign up and be  allotted a job, according to our  slips and presumably our  capabilities. By this time, due  to the bumpy and tortuous ride  over the roughest of roads, my  head had cleared somewhat so  when my hiring slip was  demanded I feigned a look of  amazement and commenced a  search of my person for the slip  that had never existed. Finally I  gave up and informed them I  obviously must have lost it.  Outwardly I was cool but deep  inside I was trembling as I  visualized being sent back to  the city, back to the hunger and  misery I had recently been  through. However, such was  not to be the case. I guess they  needed men and even if I was  not too prepossessing looking,  at least I had my youth and  looked husky enough to wield  either a shovel or a crowbar.

In addition I was told to  hurry as soon as the bell would  sound for supper and I had  better get washed up.  Supper! Lord did I ever get a  move on! When the bell  sounded I shoved through the  door amongst a milling mass of  men and I swear I must have  been the first to be seated.  Perhaps Crawley & McCracken were "gut robbers" as I had  heard repeated many times, but  to me the food laid out on the  tables was pure ambrosia and 1  tied into it with a will. Bowls of  hot bean soup, roast meat and  potatoes, vegetables and gravy.  By God how I ate! Finishing off  with canned fruit and pie and  heaven knows how many mugs  of steaming tea. It began to  appear as if I was going to stay  there all night and be ready for  breakfast in the morning but a  tired and sour-looking flunky  soon dispelled that notion by  removing everything edible  from sight and giving me such  dirty looks I caught the hint  and staggered out into the  night. I barely made it to the  bunkhouse I was so full.  Ignoring all the horseplay and  carryings on of the other men, I  undressed and rolled into bed  to sleep the sleep of the just.  I stayed on that job shovelling and levelling cement in the  forms for the future dam until  the camp closed down for the  holidays a few days before  Christmas. I had the promise of  a job when the project reopened after the holiday season  but it never materialized���why  I never found out  I have recounted my experiences in a former article of  what happened that Christmas���how I met that mad  Scotsman Bob Murray and  how the two of us managed to  distinguish ourselves by getting  lodged in the hoosegaw for the  holiday season. I look back on  that episode now almost with  pleasure, at least we had pea  soup and salt pork and a bunk  to sleep in. Come the New Year  and the bitterly cold months to  follow, I often thought of doing  something rash that would  have landed me back in the  cooler. It would have been  preferable many times to what  was in store for me!

Students of Elphinstone Drama Club are pictured in performance of Agatha Christie's  Tht Mousetrap last week.  Students impressive  All  Slippers j  Handbags  Sandals  & Shoes  by George Matthews  People in Gibsons have traditionally been strong supporters of live drama and their response to the Elphinstone  Drama Club's production of  Agatha Christie's The Mouse  Trap, presented last Thursday and Friday in the Elphinstone gym was no exception.  Both during the intermission  and after the final curtain,  audience reaction to the play  was very favourable.  The Moose Trap is an exceptionally elegant little  mystery drama written in the  best Christie tradition; a  houseful of guests, darkened  rooms, a murder and a handful of entangled clues and red  herrings make for a deceptively simple plot which requires  precise timing and crisp,  careful dialogue. With minor  exceptions, the students, under the direction of drama  teacher Linda Riches displayed a particularly fine  grasp of these dramatic skills.  Working under difficult  circumstances and an obviously limited budget, Mrs.  Riches and her student players wisely chose to stick to  fundamentals, tight blocking,  simple lighting and a basic  but effective set design.  Despite the limitations of  the Elphinstone stage, the  actors made full Use of the  playing area and except for  the occasional up-staging and  blocking error, stage movement was well planned.  When Mrs. Riches gets her  students back in the classroom she will no doubt work  on some minor stage flaws  which could be easily eliminated; some poor- stage manners particularly in body position; occasionally weak voice  projection; and the usual dif-  r  Acuity students have in touching one another comfortably.  The actors displayed excellent  off-stage discipline and their  understanding of the basic  skills showed a high degree of  dedication and hard work.  Individually, the actors  showed a good understanding  of their characters. More attention to costuming and  make-up would have allowed  the characters to emerge even  more effectively than they did.  Reg Morel gave an earnest  and intense performance as  Giles, the hotel manager. Lori  Jovick, as Mollie his wife, was  exceptionally effective. She  displayed the kind of raw talent and natural stage presence  that should be encouraged.  My favourite was Paolo  Tomasi as Trotter. Despite  missing some cues and racing his lines on occasion,  Paolo has a great deal of potential as an actor, a good  voice, purposeful movement, intensity and obvious  enjoyment. The role of Trot  ter is perhaps the most difficult in the play and Tomasi  was able to make the character  not only believable, but menacing.  Congratulations to the Elphinstone Drama Club for a  fine performance of an ambitious production. While local drama has withered in  recent years, the work and  dedication of thc students and  teachers involved in the production can only serve to benefit our community now and in  the future.

"Take it home to your wife.  She'll know how to play a tune  on it."  feeling the parcel over, the  man beamed and said, "That  she will!"  That seems to illustrate the  altitude of thc Egmont folk  during those years when so  many went hungry and ill-  clothed. The children of Egmonl may have gone to school  dressed in Hour-sack dresses  and shirts, but ihey went with  their lard-pails full of good  food and they thrived, Everyone worked hard, but since  they were not strangers to such  a life, few noticed that there  was great trouble elsewhere in  the world.  In the summer, there was  gardening to do; vegetables,  fruit, wild berries and fish were  preserved. Everyone baked  bread. Most kept chickens,  some kept other livestock.  What one family had in abundance might be lacked by  another, so trading and sharing  were the order of day. New  clothes were rare things, and  even for a wedding-dress it was  necessary to buy the fabric and  make the garment; there was no  money lo buy it ready made,  nor to lake a trip for shopping.  There were parties and  dances and showers to break  the monotony of lives filled  wiih hard toil. Many wedding  showers were built around a  theme. One such, given for Nell  Griffith when she married, was  a 'green glass shower'. It could  just as easily have been an  'amber glass shower' or a 'pink  glass shower', but hers was  green. The pattern ofthe glass  chosen as the gifts to the bride  from her family and friends  might have been Cherry Blossom, Mayfair or American  Sweetheart. Each piece of glass  belonging to the set cost  anywhere from ten to 35 cents.  The remnants of such sets,  indeed, even some complete  sets, are still around, called,  these days, as they were not in  those days, 'Depression Glass',  and highly valued collectors'  items.  fishing was good, according  to one old-timer, but thc prices  were lousy. Most fish-buyers  didn't even want whites, but on  Ihe rare occasions when they  did buy them, they paid out  onlj a cent or two a pound.  George llatishita's brother,  llaldv. it is said, was one ofthe  most 'chiseling' of the buyers.  Some credit him with having  instigated the now widely-used  classification of 'pink' for a  light red salmon, or 'poor' red,  as it was known. There is also a  story told by one old wag with a  grin on his face about the day  Haldy. looking at a white  salmon said. "While." then,  disparagingly, "poor white!"  The price of timber was also  very low, but logging went on.  perhaps on a lesser scale, but  still providing jobs and what  now appear to be pitifully small  wages. However, the people  survived, well-fed and adequately clothed, better off by  far than their inland brothers.  Kathleen Phillips once said,  "Sure, we were poor...only wc  didn't know it!"  When. 30 years later, the  hippie cult came along and  young men were building their  own shacks or taking over log  driftwood huts left by  others, and young women were  baking their own bread, making clothing for all their  families and learning how to  dry and preserve food, they  were written up in a newspaper  as being a 'new breed'. A lady  who had grown up during the  depression years doing all those  things shrugged and said wryly,  "We did that for years and  years, and nobody wrote a  story about us!"  There were some rather sad  happenings, too, and many  people did lose everything. One  of these was Mrs. Points, who  had owned so much land in  Egmont and had hoped, one  day, to turn it into a resort of  some nature. Unfortunately,  because someone, somewhere,  thought she was a 'rich' American and assessed her land more  highly than others around il,  she was fok-id to let it go for  back taxes.  An uncle of mine, born inthe  20's said, when asked about  those years, "Thc depression?  We lived as people had the  decade before, and as we did in  Ihe years after."  He must be mentally eliding  several of those years which  followed, and maybe with good  reason, for he, like many  others, lived quite differently  for a good many years in thc  following decade, but he did  live.  He lived to sec depression  replaced by prosperity, that  terrible prosperity brought  about by the massive production which was required to  keep his country at war, and  him in uniform in far-off,  foreign places.  Environment  More than 300,000 Canadi- billion  ans work in the logging and  wood-using industries, earning  up to $3 billion a year in wages  and salaries and producing  primary and secondary wood  products valued at close to $7  I bought her a  SEWING MACHINE  for  At least $6 billion  worth of these products are  exported, representing more  than 20 percent of the value of  all products exported by Canada and it's all part of our  environment.  %fe%.

The  CBC's full set crew arrives  on or about May 7 for another  shot at Hitter's Cove. Well,  I want to tell you that Egmont  did this last year with this  crew and performed very well  indeed. 1 would like to say  that we are far from nonplussed by the presence of a  full movie crew.  We have been chastised  for selling ourselves short,  but we have saved our rent  money to back up an application for a grant to construct  a skooktim tennis court  for our town. Beat your  balls against our cyclone  fence, but don't call us  suckers. I hear that the  CBC might make a documentary film on the making of  Hitter's Cove. Should be  interesting if it happens.  Our night watchman for  Argus, Bill Muncaster, has  reported numerous garbage  bags adrift in the bay. Somehow, I'm sure it's not the  locals dumping their crap  in our waters. We have even  found dead batteries discarded on ourdock. A dangerous  toy for small children.

Twenty years ago,  he would have been a goner.  1 would like to clarify my  comments from last week's  article on underwater parks.  I was speaking of scuba  divers only ��� not sports  fishermen. There are more  than one endangered species  especially vulnerable to divers. Among them are the  ling cod, swimmers(small  scallops), and rock scallops.  I'll argue with anyone who  disagrees.  The third annual Roberts  Creek Daze celebration was  set for the weekend of July 11  and 12 at a meeting last Wednesday evening. Chris Luster  and Marianne Hall were  named as coordinators with  support from the dozen or so  people in attendance.  The Daze will largely follow  the pattern of previous years.  A softball game between the  ladies team and the Beachcombers, perhaps followed by  a beer garden at the Community Hall, will kick off the  festivities on Friday night.  Saturday will begin with the  Higgledy Piggledy Parade,  livestock contest, a baking  contest, and a raffle on a Roberts Creek quilt.

East  In 1920, some 18 months  after we came to British  Columbia from Alberta, we  were living on a farm east ofthe  ���llage of Lumby. This farm,  although it was long established for those days, was  completely isolated, being in a  Wall pocket in the bush, with  <jlly a rough wagon trail for  traffic. There was a small lake  <fr' tarn in front of the farm-  tad, and across the water  posite the house was an  Sjndoned house, boarded up  cc the owner moved to a  fj|rm some two miles away.  Prom our house a fenced lane  Al out to the wagon road, with  grass fields on one side and on  the other untouched forest ran  up a hill to the mountain; from  tfjerc thc forest extended far  atoay lo the Kootcnays with  very little habitation; a wild  land.  ;One evening the family went  lor a stroll along the lane in the  twilight, my parents walking  slowly while we children ran  and "fooled around", 1 suppose  making a good deal of noise;  our dog nosed busily among  the grass hunting for exciting  scents, but keeping in touch  with us. We had almost reached  the wagon road, ahead of our  parents, when suddenly from  the bush on our left came a  tilood-chi lling cry. It began as a  lotid snarling roar and went up  and up to a piercing scream  that seemed to split the air like  a knife. We were terrified, and  ran back to our parents to  cluster around them, asking  "What was that?"  My father, who knew no  more than we, had heard that  cougars screamed; so he said  this must be a cougar, and  hurried us back to the house,  where he left us while he made  the rounds of the farm buildings to make sure that all the  stock was securely shut in for  the night. We heard nothing  more, and next day had overcome our fright; but I wondered why our dog had not  barked, but instead, with ears  and tail down, tried to crowd  among us as we walked back to  the house. 1 had read that dogs  would chase cougars, as they  are said to be ofthe cat family,  but our dog had shown no sign  of wanting to chase the screamer. Of course, we knew nothing  about B.C. wild animals, and  the largest wild animal we had  known on the prairies was the  coyote.  It must have been during  that same period that we one  day saw a stranger on the shore  of the lake in front of the old  house opposite. It appeared to  be a man in a dark suit���not the  coloured shirt and overalls  usually worn by farmers at that  time���and the figure was  motionless on the shore.

After a few moments he  walked, with a long loose  stride, towards the upper end of  the lake and again stood  staring, this time apparently  across the road into the bush,  for there still was no white face  showing. Something distracted  our attention away, and when  we looked again the figure was  gone. As strangers were few  and far between in that place,  we were endlessly curious  about this stranger, for there  was nothing to attract anyone  to the old house unless he was a  prospective buyer, and in that  case the owner, an elderly Scot,  would have been with him. A  mystery!  To be continued.  Come cry with me  Coast News, May 6,1980  deplorable condition. I hear we    Dear Sad,  9.  by Ann Napier  Dear Ann,  I've just had a very bad  experience with a dog. I had the  dog come to our place. We  phoned the SPCA.  They have no facilities, just  volunteers, to try and place  animals. They give their time,  energy and concern, but having  no holding pens, asked me to  keep him a couple of days. I  did. He got out the cat door and  I lost two laying hens���piles of  feathers were all 1 found. Ihe  lady at the pound located the  owner and 1 had a friend deliver  the dog. All the owner said was,  "Do you want a dog," no  thanks or anything.  Then I heard my chickens  and geese screaming a day or  two later. My 21 geese were  Hying in all directions. One  came up mi..sing. So I held the  dog until the poor volunteer  took him to her home. This is a  have animal control but one  region, Roberts Creek, isn't  joining���the very worst area  for uncontrolled dogs. Hall  Road is a hazard course if you  don't want to hit a dog. This  animal had no licence or collar.  I have compassion for him, but  I hadthefluandlittleenergy.lt  was an exhausting and trying  time. Can't we send some  money to the SPCA and have  all dogs licenced. I'd like the  owner to pay for my loss. What  do you think?  Sad  That's a pretty mild reaction.  It's sad for Ihe poor dog. Not  restrained, he gets into trouble  and the owner just shrugs it off. I  think the fee to own an animal  should be high enough that only  concerned, responsible people  could own them. The fact that  some people won't put up with  these transgressions, and shoot  the animal, is the owners fault,  letting an untrained dog run wild  is really something the owner  should be fined for. Send a few  dollars to the SPCA. Support  animal control and shelter.

I'm keeping a careful eye on  my own strawberry plants. They're just full of  blossom and the bees are buzzing merrily around  them.You just can't beat the taste of a sun warm  strawberry. Meanwhile however, one can purchase  strawberries grown by other people to satisfy one's  cravings. Strawberries can be eaten in utter simplicity straight from the bowl or tarted up-as in fresh  strawberry tarts. They are so pretty���no wonder  strawberry shortcake is a perennial favourite.  One of my favourite adults only desserts is  Strawberries in Wine.  1/4 cup white wine  1 1/2 cups prepared strawberries, halved  2 tablespoons berry sugar  1 tablespoon kirsch  Put all the ingredients in a serving bowl and chill for  an hour. Stir occasionally and then serve to two  strawberry lovers.  Then of course there's the  perfect red and white match of  TYTrTTiTrrr.

Elizabeth, Keith, Graham & Julia  SHCP TALK ByB  ill Edney  VANDALISM  The willful destruction of private  and public property is abhorent.  At a meeting last night of the  Gibsons Harbour Business Association some items came up for  discussion that were difficult to  resolve because of vandalism. They  were:  1) Desecration of the village park  and tombstones where the original  Gibsons' United Church stood on  the corner opposite Molly's Reach.  2) The lack of a flag flying from the  flag pole situated on that corner  property.  It brought to mind the destruction  and closure of public toilet facilities  on this site, as well as those at the  picnic grounds by the beach (on the  Bluff).  It brought to mind also the misuse,  and loss of our grocery carts which I  wrote about week before last.  Pictured is David Wilson among  some carts he pulled up out of the  ocean at the wharf. They had been  disassembled for joy ride go-carts  and thrown overboard when the fun  was over!  Last year, for Canada Day, the  merchants in Gibsons Harbour (now  referred to as Gibsons Landing)  purchased flags. We had three on  our rooftop. All of ours, and most all  the others were stolen.  Surely, parents, friends, or others  must have some knowledge as to  these happenings.  It is not only  wasteful but discouraging for anyone including municipal authorities,  to be willing to fund the replacement  or development of public facilities  under these circumstances.  I urge the public, the school  authorities, and responsible young  people to work toward putting an  end to desecration of public and  private property.  I wish to thank the many who  responded to the request for information regarding missing grocery  carts. A lot turned up, including  some from the bottom of the 'chuck'  which will never be put to use again.  CASH TRADING  I would urge all who have been  dealing with us on a monthly  charge basis to take serious note  of our message in last week's Shop  Talk.

The  game was tied at two each with seconds to go. The above picture shows a Miloni  attacker beating the North Vancouver National goalie, only to have the final whistle  blow when the ball was inches from the goal line.  In a shoot-out to decide the winner of the game, the Miloni keeper is finally beaten to  give North Vancouver the game by a score of three to two. The final game in the  tournament was played on Sunday afternoon between the Wanderers and the North  Shore Saints. The Saints scored three times to the Wanderer's singleton.  Car Sense  Check II Yourself  II' You Serve Yourself  How long has it been since  you took a really good look  around your car? If you had to  pause to remember when you  last checked your exhaust  system, tires, oil, coolant level,  battery and other vital components, you probably have  put it off too long.  According to the Consumer  Automotive Advisory Council,  the advent of self-service gas  outlets has placed an added  burden of responsibility on the  car owner. Even most mini-  serve stations do not check  under the hood. So the auto  repair industry reports a  mounting concern about maintenance neglect.  The Consumer Automotive  Advisory Council offers the  following list of car checks that  ���you should make periodically.  And if you can't do it personally, have your service dealer  do it for you.  1. Fluids - Check engine oil,  transmission oil, powering  steering fluid and coolant. Add  as needed. CAUTION. Never  remove the radiator pressure  cap when the engine is hot.  2. Battery - Check for  corrosion on terminals, a  common cause of starting  trouble. Check electrolyte level  and add water as needed.  CAUTION. When working  near a battery, be sure there is  no open flame nearby. Do not  smoke. Batteries emit explosive  hydrogen gas.  3. Bells and Hoses-While thc  hood is up, take a look at your  drive belt and hoses. Frayed or  worn belts should be replaced.  So should soft brittle or bulging  hoses.  4. Windshield Wipers-Take a  look at your wipers. The rubber  becomes brittle with weathering and aging and may be worn  to a point where the wipers  smear or streak the glass.  How's your supply of washer  fluid?  5. Tires - Invest in a good tire  gauge and use it frequently. If  you haven't checked tire pressure lately, you're likely to lind  your tires underinflated. Even a  couple of pounds of under-  inflation can cut tire life by  about 10%. And four pounds  of underinflalion can cost up to  3% in fuel economy.  6. Other Service Items -Take  a look at the service sticker on  your door jamb or under the  hood. Is il time for a lube job.  oil and filter change? One good  reason for getting the car up on  a service lift is that it allows you  or your service dealer lo check  underneath the car for problems. Here you can spot leaking  shocks, exhaust system parts  that are faulty or rusted  through, leaking transmission  seals or rear end. While the car  is up on the lift, it's also an  opportunity for another close  look at the condition of your  tires.  Finally, as part of your  periodic inspection program,  make a walk around check of  all your lights, including turn  signals. If you have no one with  you to help check brake lights,  you can do it yourself in broad  daylight when another car is  behind you at an intersection.  Just tap your brake pedal and  look for the reflection of your  brake lights in his headlights  through your rear view mirror.  Self-service fillups are great  time and money savers. But  they're not worth it if other  important safety and maintenance inspections aren't being  attended to. The resultant  breakdown could cost you  more than you're saving at the  self-serve.

From the Fairway  by Ernie Hume  Probably the largest turnout  in the golf club's history  showed up Sunday, April 27 to  participate in the every popular  four member team scramble.  Blessed with perfect weather,  the tournament started promptly at 8:00 a.m. with golfers  waiting to tee off three deep at  each tee.  The refreshment wagon was  o n hand early and strategically  located at the junction of No. 2,  3, 4 and 7 tees, and ably  serviced by house director  Forda Gallier. After six hours  of slow but pleasant play and a  tasty lunch, the tournament  winners were presented.  The low score for the day was  shot by the team led by Ken  Hincks, with a net score of 65-2  under par, followed by Paul  Smith's team with an identical  65 but not able to maintain the  score shot by the winning team  in the back nine. The 1 under  par 66 winning teams were led  by Lome Gregory, Dave Walker, and Bob Mckenzie. Some  110 players enjoyed a great day  on the golf course.  The ladies day event on  Tuesday, was a blind par  tournament. The secret score  chosen before the game started,  was a net 73. Mary Horn shot a  net 73 right on the button to  win this match. Doreen Greg  ory was second with a net 72.  Jean Todd won the 9-hole  players game with a net 78.  Runner-up was Marg Humm  who netted a 79.  A small group of our golfers  journeyed to Nanaimo to play  in the B.C. Ferry Authority  Golf Tournament last week.  The guest low gross was won by  Roy Taylor.  Don't forget to sponsor a  new member to be eligible for  the draw for a valuable set of  irons and woods, plus a golf  bag. Graham Craig was the  lucky winner last year.  Good luck to all the juniors  who started in the junior  program on Monday.  ac=ac  ace  aoc  S.P.C.A.  GENERAL MEETING  May 14th, 8:00 p.m.  West Sechelt Elementary School  Topics on Agenda:  Dos Control Spay Clinic  General Public and All S.P.C.A. Members Welcome  -3TC-  3E  Water rates hiked  Madeira Park residents will  pay 50% higher land charges  for their water, it was learned at  the annual general meeting of  the South Pender Harbour  Water District on Sunday.  John MacFarlane, secretary-  treasurer of the water district,  said the new charges were  necessary because the district  h as lost $24,000 in the last year.  The main cause of the losses  was increased debt charges on  the district's loan, he said. He  added the water board had  considered three approaches  for solving their financial  problem: forming a village  which would qualify for Provincial government aid, turning  the system over to the Regional  District; and raising taxes to  Users. Forming a village would  entail many other costs and  calling in the regional district  v.ould involve a loss of local  identity, he said. Even with the  new tax hike, charges would  remain lower in Pender Harbour than in Sechelt, MacFarlane claimed.  Most ratepayers present  srerned to accept the need for  the new charge, but there were  other suggestions as to how the  South Pender District might  operate more economically.  After Francis Peninsula resident Bill White pointed out  that the water district's debts  had been caused by new  .developments joining the sys-  tem, the meeting unanimously  passed a motion calling for  reconsideration of the $1,000  per lot capital charge to new  subdivisions.  White also pointed out that  thc district was paying some  $15,000 a year to maintain its  part-time office in Madeira  Park whereas the Garden Bay  waterworks ran its business  very satisfactorily from a  member's home at a cost of  only a few hundred dollars a  month. "There are businesses in  Madeira Park tha^ would  undertake all the waterboard's  office work for $500 a month,"  he claimed.  Under   other   business,   a  Environment  Much of southern Canada's  waterfowl habitat is disappearing, making way for housing develoments, industry and  highways. Several years ago,  Environment Canada began to  acquire prime nesting and  migratory stop-over land in  threatened areas. To date,  more than 30 national wildlife  areas have been created as a  result and more are being set  aside. They are part of our  environment.  resolution was passed asking  the board to require a large  reserve tank in the new 70 lot  subdivision under construction  in the Rondview Road area. A  motion proposed by Cathy  McQuitty and seconded by  Howard White called for a  meeting between the several  water improvement districts  from Pender Harbour, to  discuss mutual problems. It  was agreed to hold another  general meeting in two months  time to report on the various  matters raised at the meeting.

Heron*:  The Fish and Wildlife De  partment have started their  fourth year of heron studies  on the coast. Scott Forbes  will be heading it up this  year. On Tuesday we went  down to the heronry at Twin  Creeks. We only found one  nest in use. Doug Gillette  feels that they may have  moved over to Gambier Island  possibly in the Cotton Bay  area. So if you live around  there, could you keep your  eyes open for nests and  let me know.  The nesting site at Pender  has also been evacuated.  It would be interesting to  find where' they have cone as  find where they have gone  as well.  Eagles:  Micky Kyle in Wilson  Creek called me the other  day. His wife had been  watching two eagles when  one of them dive-bombed  the lower one. The end result  was that the victim landed  in the bush beside their  property and from what  they could see was minus  an eye.  It sat in the bush recuperating and after a day and a  half finally took off.  The attacker was full grown  while the injured party  still had a bit of brown on  its head, so it could well  have been a territorial dispute. There have been more  eagles around this year  than in the past and territory  may be at a premium.

After the minutes of  the previous meeting had  been accepted, a letter from  Arne Pettersen, President of  Gibsons Chamber referring  to an Economic Development  Commissioner for the Sun-  smne Coast was brought  forward. Homer Glass,Alternate Director for Area C  Regional Director Charles  Lee, who advocated the appointment of such a Commi-  sioner, told the meeting  that the Regional Board are in  process of advertising for ap-  licants    for    the    position.  On the matter of the acquisition of Rockwood Lodge,  Chamber President Bud Koch  told the meeting that directors  had voted unanimously to  borrow $5,000 to make up  the deposit on the property.  Koch explained that the  Chamber had until July 31 to  come up with the rest of the  April then they took off  for a couple of weeks before  returning again. Has anyone  else noticed this?  All for now, so If you want to  contact me, my numbers are  886-2622,886-7817, or 886-9151  Ta.  money, total $87,500, for the  property, and over $20,000  had been pledged for the purpose. Asked about Heritage  funding, Koch said that the  terms of such funding were  too restrictive for the Chamber's proposed uses for the  building. Lil Fraser and  others are investigating are  funding sources. "We can  do wonders with this concept,"said Koch. The meeting ratified the directors'  motion to borrow the additional $5,000 to make up the  down payment.  Jan Sanderson of Getaway  Holidays gave a detailed  report on tourism for the  Sunshine Coast and the marketing of tour packages.  The Sunshine Coast was, she  said,eight years behind  other places in this regard.  She emphasized the need  for controlled tourism saying  that it was not desired that  thc area should deteriorate  as a result of tourism as had  Hawaii. Fishing, sailing,  hiking, and scuba diving  were some of the attractions  i She spoke mainly  of promoting winter tourism  through international markets  at times when our hotels  and other facilities lie idle.

Time running out  by Don Lockstead, MLS  This week let's take a look  at the British Columbia government's record of inaction  on Ocean Falls.  It begins in January of this  year when the Premier met  with representatives of the  Canadian Papcrworkers'  Union and told them "....when  the future of that community  is decided the people there  will be the first to know".  Well, after weeks of rumour,  the decision to close Ocean  Falls was made. And the people of Ocean Falls learned  about it like the rest of us���  from the newspapers. But not  to worry, we were assured,  every effort would be made to  find new jobs elsewhere  in  For all your Carpets  T. Sinclair  BB5-9327  B.C. for the 410 workers who  would be laid off. This 'every  effort' has so far produced  50jobs for those 410 workers.  Then there's thc plight of  the small business people in  Ocean Falls���the) arc the  people who have staked a lifetime of work, money and expertise in the future of Ocean  Falls only to face ruin as, one  by one, the lights of the town  flicker out. That kind of problem ought lo be a challenge  the Minister of Industry and  Small Business Development  would be eager to accept. So  far he has made no commitment to the small business  people of Ocean Falls.  Consider thc transportation situation in Ocean Falls.  Here the government did take  action. One week before thc  first of the lav-offs began, on  April 13. the government took  away the only water transportation link Ocean Falls had to  thc rest of B.C. Five days later  the legislature was giving second reading to thc "Special  Purpose Appropriation Act"  (Bill 5), which appropriates  $100 million for highway construction and other highway  and transportation links. It  remains to be seen if any of  the $100 million will be spent  to alleviate the transportation crisis at Ocean Falls.  To keep a glimmer of life in  the town, the Corporation  and. or Impact Lumber have  proposed a Hitch and chip mill  for Ocean Falls. There are  some residents who have  chosen to gamble on that proposal and remain in thc town.  Anil there's no doubt now that  it is a gamble because not a  slick ot wood has been allocated lo either the Corporation  or Impact Lumber for ihe operation ol such a mill.  From the non-union worker  who will have to pay thc full  cost of his move, unlike his  unionized counterpart, to the  over 50worker who must compete with j oungcr people in an  already overcrowded job market, there are as many problems associated with the closure of Ocean Falls as there  are people in Ocean Falls.  Make no mistake, the social  ami personal stains of thc belt.mured residents of this  town will be felt long after the  closure of Ocean Falls. Only  swift, decisive government  action can alleviate those  problems,  I he people of Ocean Falls  arc wailing for action���and  time is running out.  m��ammmm Deserted Bay Report  The Milk-run on Wednesday at Elphinstone High collected $120  through participating donators. First place went to Mike Fyles who  Carl's corner  Photo by David Atlee, Elphie Photo Club  finished the course in 11 minutes even. Sergeant McDermid of the Local  RCMP was nine minutes behind him, coming in 91st  Steampot to skyhook  Steampots to Skvhooks!   Hart VI   Logs were being placed on  the tracks and against the far  bank so that the sniped off  runners of the 60 loot sled  would raise the nose of thc  heavy machine to start her  climbing the hill. When the bull  car arrived, she would be pulled  on cross ways, then turned for  travelling.  I was busy moving pumps  and hoses out of thc way and  keeping an eye on the ridge  above thc landing. The fire had  moved over the top and was  slowly working its way down  the hill. Frank Hoy had been  studying it lor a while and was  now part way up the hill,  seemingly trying to decide  whether to move the crew out  of there now or continue with  the rescue operations of the  equipment.  Bob Bell had warned me that  he was going to need a full head  of steam when he started his  move. "If we run out of steam  before we get up on that bank  we won't have time to wait for  more. And she's going to be  one hell of a pull to do it!"  With this in mind, I had the  safety pop valve blowing off at  intervals and a good steady  blue flame roaring into the  firebox. I just hoped the safety  valve was in good shape and the  pressure wouldn't blow the t.p  right off that old boiler.  We were soon going to find  out for Werner had all his  rigging set and was ready for  the big pull. Placing his men in  strategic positions, he waved at  Bob and shouted, "Go ahead  on 'er!"  Bob used about half throttle  until he had all the slack taken  up in the lines and was ready  for the first big lunge. He  lookedaroundat thecrew.then  clamping down on a big chew  of tobacco, he opened her wide.  That old monster belched fire,  smoke and steam as she laid  into her harness like a prize  percheron draft horse, tossed  her head in the air as her  runners hit the first ofthe logs,  then snorted into the bank like  a goat running up a rock face.  Bob never once slackened on  the throttle as she rose to the  challenge of thc sidehill, his  right hand with all the weight of  his body pressing down on the  mainline friction lever, never  giving it a chance to slip its  blocks. His left hand was on the  throttle, the twelve inch lever  straight up, causing his arms to  spread eagle like a martyr  nailed to his cross.  As the back end of the  machine cleared the tracks and  raised to a position under  which the bull car could clear, a  cheer went up from everyone in  the crew, including Werner.  There wasn't a man in the  bunch that wasn't proud of  Bob and that great snorting  beast, now resting and panting  from her tremendous efforts!  There was no time to rest on  our laurels, however. Frank  Hoy was running back down  the sidehill, having made up his  mind to his next strategy.  "Bill," he shouted. "Have thc  boys stretch hoses up the hill as  far as they can reach. I'm going  to start a back fire! O.K. with  you?"  "It's your baby now, Frank,"  was his response.  He turned to me. "Get the  pumps set up in the creek again,  Chris. Put tee's for double  hoses on all of them. Have 'em  ready to go as soon as the hoses  are out!"  He turned back to Bill.  "You see how the smoke is  moving up there? The big fire  on the other side ofthe ridge is  pulling the air up from this side.  That should work for us until  we get a back fire under  control."  It didn't lake long to position  the pumps, get the hoses out  and water flowing up the  sidehill. Frank spread the crew  out to get as much coverage in  the face of the slowly approaching fire, then when he was  satisfied, began sloshing a  mixture of diesei fuel and  gasoline all the way up the hill.  This done, he instructed the  men on the hoses to aim their  nozzles at the fire, prop them in  that position, then come down  the hill. When that volatile  mixture was ignited, he wanted  no one up the hill in case it  jumped the wet down area.  When all were in the clear he  dropped a match in the oil  soaked slash, then jumped  down of the bank. We all  expected to see an explosion as  the slash began to burn but the  air was so hot and lacking in  oxygen that it caught slowly,  moved cautiously toward the  next gas mixture, not seeming  to be in a hurry to go anywhere.  But as the fire burned in ever  increasing volume it began to  create its draft, throw sparks  and flame ahead of itself, and  to grow into the monster which  was working its way down the  hill to meet it.  As it burned,away from theu  wet areas, Frank sent the boys  up the hill to continue their  ablutions of the tinder dry  slash. But he warned them to  keep their eyes open and get off  the hill fast if the fire jumped  and got behind them.  With the back fire on its way,  and things in control in the  landing, Frank's next worry  was down thc line. He called to  me and said, "Come with me.  We'll go down and pick up that  other pump and bring it up  here."  It was a good thing we  arrived at the bridge when we  did. The fire had worked its  way down around the timbers  and was just starting to lap up  into thc ties and cross braces.  "Get that pump going fast or  we're going to lose this bridge,"  shouted Frank.  It was less than an hour since  I had tried to get the thing  going and unless the gas had  evaporated my chances of  getting water up to him were  pretty slim.  The heat of the day and the  nearby fire must have evaporated the excess gas from the  engine, for on the first pull it  caught, sputtered a couple of  times, then settled down into a  steady roar. Within seconds,  two hoses, fully charged with  healthy streams, were wetting  down the bridge timbers and  surrounding brush and burning  rubbish. To be continued.  by Wanda, Gwen, Shawn,  Darren and Val  A group of five students and  Dave Newland hiked to Second  Lake this week for a two night  campout. The hike up was  tiring but beautiful, we saw an  old steam donkey and many  signs of bears, but we didn't see  any bears. At Second Lake we  camped below a big waterfall  that was made from a glacier up  in the mountains. On the way  back down it was an easy hike  most of the way because it was  all downhill. While we were  camping, Greg Miller took  Dwayne, Ken, Kevin and Tim  tree planting with a guy from  B.C. Forest Service. We stopped at Goliath Bay log sorting  on Monday morning and  would  like to thank super-  intendant Clancy for taking  time to show us around. The  paintings and carvings are  coming along very well and all  the students are putting a lot of  work into them. Jody Clark is  doing extemely well in the  painting area, and is selling  some of the paintings that he is  doing.

Janet Webb impressed the Gibsons locals on Sunday by doing her shopping in this vintage-looking vehicle.  The glamour of the situation was slightly marred when passerbys had to give her a push to start her home.  Sechelt Elementary held an egg-dropping contest at lunch time last Friday. For some  reason this student was loath to check the contents of his package.  Children's Corner  Spotty and the sparrow  bv Beverly Seton  Did you know a song sparrow could really think? Well  I'm sure this little fellow could.  You know song sparrows  build their nests in very low  bushes, just about a foot off the  ground, and strangely enough  the wee babies tumble out of  the nest very early, onto the  ground where they arc in great  danger and very vulnerable for  several days until they can fly.  We had been watching this  nest for some time, it was only  aboul 30 feet behind our  summer cottage on Keats  Island. Now at this time wc had  a very lively fox terrier, Spotty.,  He would chase anything that  moved. We feared greatly for  the baby birds. We tried tying  Spotty up but after one whole  day of steady barking we could  stand it no longer. We tried to  keep him around in front of the  house as much as we could.  Then little daddy song sparrow  took over the job for us, and for  three solid days he kept that  dog running and barking in  front of the house. He sat on  every post, chair, and step  usually about 10 feet away  from Spotty, who chased him  like crazy. Spotty ran until he  was exhausted. Then birdie got  an even better idea. At the very  front ofthe garden was a row of  rocks marking the edge of a 20  foot drop down to the rocks  and the water below. Brave.  wee bird sat, time after time on  the outside edge of one-of-ttw".  rocks, trying his best to make  Spotty fall over thc cliff. He  would stay until the very last  second and then just as the  dog's mouth was closing on  him he would swoop out over  the water. Spotty came very-  close   to   going  over several  times. After three hectic days it  was-'all over. I ran up and'  looked and sure enough the  wee sparrows had learned to lly  and were safely sitting in a row  up in the maple tree.  We never saw daddy sparrow  around the front of the house  again.

Gil Kang, an inspector from  the Pollution Control Board  (PCB) inspected the site on  Monday, April 28, after receiving complaints from local  residents.  The plant started operation  recently, manufacturing the  asphalt for the present highway paving by the Department  of Highways. At the outset  residents complained to both  the PCB and the regional  board concerning a large black  plume of smoke emitting from  the site.  John Cunningham, the  plant manager informed Kang  that a fan had been in backwards during start up, causing  the machinery to run improperly. This had been rectified and the operation was  now running within the guidelines set by the PCB.  Mr. Tim Forte from the PCB  expressed some concern that  the plant was neighbouring  a residential area, and added  that input from local residents  or council is always helpful  and appreciated when making  a decision concerning the location of industry.  Another member of the PCB  made a flight over the site the  following day and reported  that the emission was in the  form of a clean white steam.

Fifteen years ago residents of the North Shore and  Howe Sound areas began fighting to get a college  on the North Shore. They felt a need for career  training, continuing education for adults,  transferable post-secondary programs, and an  educational and cultural centre for the community,  It took a great deal of campaigning and lobbying to  persuade Victoria to support the idea, but in 1968  working essentially from scratch, Capilano College  began.  1968 Capilano College was voted into existence  by referendum in three school districts: North Vancouver, West Vancouver, and Howe Sound.  1968 Nearly 800 students commenced their first  term of classes in September in West Vancouver  Secondary School classrooms at 4:00 each weekday.  1WT Daytime classes were added in the fall at St.  David's Church in West Vancouver and in a  warehouse in North Vancouver.  1972 College commenced in the Howe Sound  District with the opening of a Squamish office,  1973 We established the Lynnmour campus in  North Vancouver and with the expanded facilities  enrollment jumped 44% in 1973 and 52% in 1974.  1973-76 Emergency facility expansion at Lynnmour. The enrollment temporarily peaked at 3,400  in the fall of 75.  1976-77 Employment training and upgrading programs got underway.  1979-80 The Sunshine coast School District  (Sechelt Peninsula and Bowen Island) was  designated as part of our College region.  (Programming and facilities development are  underway.)  1980 We received approval for our new multipurpose facility to be built at Lynnmour.  THE CAPILANO COLLEGE COMMUNITY  Our College is now in its twelfth year of operation  serving the districts of North Vancouver, West  Vancouver, Howe Sound and the Sunshine Coast.  These areas form three distinct and separate  geographic regions, with 84% of the population  concentrated on the North Shore.  Population  The population of the College region is almost  160,000. In 1976 it was distributed as follows:  North Vancouver 95,800     60.2%  West Vancouver 38,200      24.0%  Howe Sound 11,800        7.5%  Sunshine Coast 13,200        8.3%  The growth rate of our region's population is projected at 2.6% per annum until 1986.  The number of people in the 15-24 age group is  predicted to decline slightly, starting in 1981, while  the 25 39 age group will be the fastest growing.  Some Socio Economic Statistics  Compared to the other 13 community college  regions in B.C., our college region has:  * the highest employed percentage of the  population of both sexes (62.5% in 1976)  * the highest percentage of the labour force in  professional and managerial positions (27.2%  in 1971)  * the highest individual income level for people  15 and over  * the highest percentage of people over 24 with  some post-secondary education (30% in 1971)  * the highest participation rate in formal education (20% in 1971)  * a higher than average number of people who  are widowed or divorced 112% compared to a  B.C. average of 9%)  * o higher than average number of people with  English os their mother tongue (87.6% compared to a B.C. overage of 82.6%.  * and 7% of B.C s native Indians living on  reserves (or 2,236 persons)  Nearly 8,000 people are enrolled in a wide variety  of programs and courses. The college has 300  teaching faculty. 150 support staff and a $10  million annual operating budget which is now  funded totally by the Municipal Government.  INSTRUCTIONAL PROGRAMS  Academic Studies  Our comprehensive 15 week credit courses cover a  full range of subjects in the Natural Sciences,  Humanities and Social Sciences and are 99%  transferable to provincial universities.  Career Programs  Preparing students for professional employment in  business and industry are our two year career programs. Many of these are unique to the province  such as Media Resources, Music Therapy and Outdoor Recreation. In most programs, employment  placement for graduates has been excellent.  Vocational Programs  Usually full time and of less than a year's duration,  these programs provide upgrading or training in  specialized skilled trades and service and business  occupations. A new building in 1982 will add  General Mechanics, Household Services, Health,  and Mechanical Drafting to our offerings.  Community Education  Responding to educational needs beyond those  met by credit courses, we offer a very wide range  of credit-free activities including short courses in  the Creative and Liberal Arts and Leisure and  Recreation. Working with business and the public  sector for training employees and working with  community agencies on development programs  ore other facets of the division.  Instructional Support Services  Faculty members at the college are noted for making themselves available to help students outside  of class time. As well as faculty, there is a range of  professionally staffed services, most of which are  freely available to both students and community  residents, such as Counselling, the Library Media  Centre, Learning Assistance Centre, Women's  Resource Centre, Financial Aid, Job Placement,  Athletics and Health Services.  The Student!  Over 3,900 students were enrolled in our credit  programs this fall as follows:  Academic 44%  Career 33%  Vocational 23%  Where We Plan To Go  1981 - 1986  GENERAL DIRECTION FOR THE FUTURE  We feel that Capilano College has been a very successful venture in  spite of limitations caused by a lack of sufficient resources to provide  our community with the wide range of services expected of a Community College. Realizing this, we would make it a priority to obtain  further funding from the Ministry of Education so that we can expand  to meet the demands of the community.  Agree  Don'*  Diugree ,������  Another 4.500 people will have registered in our  Community Education credit-free activities by the  end of the 1979-80 year.  At Capilano we have one of the oldest student  populations in the provincial college system, with  an average age of 23 for full time students and 30  for part-time.  The female portion of our enrollment has been  consistently around 60% in recent years.  Over Copilano's 12 years the average annual  growth rate has been 18%, but the average annual  increase in recent years has been less than 6%.  About 13% of high school graduates in our region  come directly on to full time studies ot Capilano  Admissions and Scheduling  We have an open admissions policy for anyone  over 17 years of age, limited only by program  openings which are scorce in some of the Careei  and Vocational programs.  Courses are offered throughout the week during  the day and evening with many weekend on and  off campus activities.  Campuses  Our core campus is at Lynnmour in North Van  couver. just north of 2nd Narrows Bridge.  We also hove comprehensive satellite centres of  fering instruction and services operoting in  Squamish and Sechelt. with oddities! course oc  tivity (mostly credit-free) in Mount Currie Pember  ton. Gibsons and many North Shore locations.  THE COLLEGE REGION  1. We should continue to develop satellite educo  tional services in the Howe Sound and Sunshine  coast and fo provide housing and travel allowances  so that residents of those areas will be able to pursue studies at the Lynnmour campus.  2. We should continue to enrol students who live   0  outside our college region (which is the North Shore,  Howe  Sound  and  Sunshine Coast);   however  we  should give preference to qualified applicants from  the college region except in programs which are unique to Capilano College in the Lower Mainland.  3. We should work to make the college more attrac-    [  tive to full time students as they provide the bulk of  the College's  instructional demand which,  in  turn,  ensures a broad range of courses available for part-  time students.  4. We should continue to accommodate students on   [[  part-time studies.  3. We  should   ensure   the  equal  accessibility  of   Q  women and men to all courses, programs, and services of the College.  PROGRAMS AND SERVICES  .6. We  should  maintain  a  balance  of  Academic,   [_  Career   and   Vocational   programs   and   courses  responsive to community demand once the current  expansion of Vocational programming is completed  (by 1983).  7. As soon as resources permit, the College should    [_  provide a childminding service and a recreational  athletic facility at our core campus (and eventually at  satellite college centres, if possible).  8. We  should  develop  a  substantial  offering  of   ��  evening and weekend courses with adequate sup  port services.  9. We should investigate the demand in our region   f  for an on-going summer College term in Academic  and Career progroms.  10. We should attempt to satisfy all relevenf post- [  secondary educational needs in our region with  Copilano's comprehensive programs. Where we do  not have the immediate capacity to respond to  needs, we should arrange the temporary provision  of those needs by another educational institution or  agency.  FACILITIES  11. The next facility priority at Lynnmour after ac  quiring a gymnasium should be the construction of a  Theatre, both for instruction and to allow the College  to become a cultural focus for the community.  OTHER  12. To enable people in the region to study at their  own pace and in their own homes, the College  should continue to develop audiovisual and print  learning packages.  School Enrolment Trends  In 1974 39% of the region's Grade 12 graduates  went directly on to some form of post-secondary  education       the highest level in the province.  We   are   projected   to   experience   one   of   the  sharpest declines in school enrollment in the province      21% over the next 19 years compared to k  5% province-wide. |  The grade 12 decline will be very sharp (35% com- I  pored to 19% in B.C.). |  If you wish to express your concerns in person,  please come to our public meeting.

Photo by Gordon Shead  597 acres this year  Logging at Chatterbox Falls  First printed in the Columbian  Weekly of New Westminster  bj Maggie Leech  Columbian Boating Editor  Despite all the efforts of the  Princess Louisa International  Society to preserve the beautiful cruising area of Princess  Louisa Inlet, it looks like logging will go ahead on the  mountains surrounding the  inlet.  According to reports from  thc society, 597 acres in the vicinity of the inlet will be  logged this year with the logs  dumped into Jervis Inlet.  The entire area is scheduled to  be cut in about lOyears.  This is nothing short of  criminal. Boaters who have  made thc run to the inlet know  this particular area is incredibly beautiful and in any other  part of the world it would be  singled out for preservation as  a haven and tourist attraction.  Only here in B.C., where vtp  seem to take such scenic  wonders for granted, could  such a calculated rape of  natural resources take place.  Princess Louisa Inlet, a  royal fjord unlike any other,  has a charm and scenic beauty  that no words can adequately  describe. It must be seen and  experienced to be known.  Far inland, approached  from the Strait of Georgia by  way of Jervis Inlet, this magnificent granite-walled gorge  was cut by an ice-age glacier  of milleniums past through the  snow-tipped mountains that  rise sharply from the water's  edge to heights in excess of  7,000 feet.  As placid as a mountain  lake, the ocean waters of Princess Louisa Inlet move con  stantly with the tides, but currents are practically nonexistent except for the seven-  to-ten knot Malibu Rapids at  thc entrance. The inlet, almost completely enclosed is  1,000 feet deep and never over  a mile wide in its five-mile  length.  Until mid-June the warm  sun melting the snows of the  mountains creates more than  60 waterfalls that cascade and  spume down precipitous sides  to mingle with the water of  this finger of the sea. As summer progresses, the melting  and thc waterfalls diminish,  but beautiful Chatterbox Falls  at the head of the inlet continues to tumble 120 feet into  the water to shatter the stillness that is otherwise disturbed only by the murmur of  boat motors.  During July and August the  waters a short distance from  thc falls are in a comfor-  tablc-7(ldcgroe range... ���    ��� i  This then is the pristine  beauty that logging threatens  to ravage.  Until now, thc provincial  government has respected and  assisted the efforts ofthe Princess Louisa International Society to cultivate the inlet and  the rustic facility at its head in  such a way as to enhance the  attractiveness of the area. It  may be true that at present  only boaters (or aircraft) can  reach this paradise, but in the  years to come this will surely  Canadian  DIMENSION  Magazine  $2.00 at the  N.D.P.

The society has worked for  years to bring about an exchange agreement that would  preserve the inlet area  the desecration that logging  can bring about, but it appears  its pleas have fallen on indifferent if not deaf ears.  What a pity. In the years to  come, the people of this province and tourists who visit  here would have revelled in  the pleasure of cruising or  motoring to what will surely  be recognized as one of the  great scenic attractions of  North America.  If you think I am exaggerating, take a run up there this  summer. See it while you can  in its natural glory, and then  join the rest of us who are incensed at the callous attitude  of those responsible for the  deliberate ruination which logging will almost certainly  bring about.  Approximately 2138 -boat*  visited the inlet last year. Six  new floats were constructed  and put in place at the head of  the inlet and four more are  scheduled to be completed  this year. The bulk of the Princess Louisa Society's funds  have gone into these new  floats with the money used for  materials while the parks department furnished the labour.  The old floats have been  moved to the other side of the  falls    at    Trapper's    Rock.  While there is no connection  there to the shore, the floats  do offer additional moorage  and it's easy to put a dinghy  down and run the short distance to the shore or the  shore-attached moorings.  The trail to thc bottom of  thc falls has now been extended lo form a loop trail  back to thc Memorial Lodge.  Thc parks department reports thc expenditure of  $13,487 for general maintenance and $10,000 for capital  expenditures which include  replacing thc main ramp, delivering and installing the new  floats, moving the old floats  and purchasing decking for  future floats.  In addition to the four new  floats planned this year, projects call for ongoing maintenance and upgrading of  trails and boardwalks, thc digging of a new garbage pit and  the repairing or replacing of  Hit: main anchor cable of (he  floats.  If you're planning your  summer cruising and have thc  time for a two-week holiday  on thc water, head up that way  and enjoy a relaxed run up the  inlet, with a few days spent  moored near the falls. It's well  worth the run and, if the logging plans continue to persist despite the protests, you  may be among the last few to  enjoy the natural beauty of thc  area before commercial activity alters it forever.  At the Monday meeting of  Ihe Sunshine Coast Unit of the  Canadian Cancer Society at  thc home of its president, Rev.  John Godkin, recent activities  of thc unit were reviewed.  The Daffodil Sale held on  April 3 was not as roaring a  success as hoped for but all  dOO bunches of daffodils were  sold due in a large measure  lo the generosity of the businesses of the Sunnycrest  Mall in Gibsons, the Trail Bay  Mall in Sechelt and the Shopping Centre at Madeira Park  and to the support of the  ladies of the Order of the  Eastern Star who bought up  die remaining bunches at their  meeting that evening. It was  hoped that the general public  would have considered the  purchase of a bunch of daffodils as a donation to the work  ul the Cancer Society in the  area as well as a way to  brighten up the house for  Easter, Ihe committee feels  that, with more publicity a-  notheryear, increased support  from the public will be forthcoming. Those who purchased  ihe flowers and donated their  dollar���in some eases, more���  report on the excellent  keeping quality of the blooms  which were closed when sold  but opened in a few hours at  home.  Deserted  Bay Report  by Cathy Silvey  This week we had a short  week for school. We came up  on Tuesday, and on our way  up we stopped at some log  cabins just outside of Egmont  by Goliath Bay. We spent  about two hours looking at  them and then, having something to eat.  We made plans to go  camping at Hamilton Island  just before you get to Chatterbox Falls. The campers left  Tuesday evening and canoed  to Pctatee Creek and camped  there the first night. On Wednesday the campers portaged  through Malibu. They canoed  up Princess Louisa Inlet  toward Chatterbox Falls.  On Wednesday at camp we  had a visitor from the reserve.  Chris Julian stayed with us  until Friday and then came  home with us on the boat.  While he was with us, Jamie  took him out fishing. Chris  showed us an old Indian camp,  an old gold mine, and he also  showed us where to catch halibut. We caught a lot of red  snappers and cod. I hope  Chris enjoyed his visit with us.

She reports that, in  spite of the tight money situation, people are indeed responding well and she expects  more returns before she  makes her report in June. Donations can, of course, be sent  in at any time.  Since there is now a unit in  the area, funds are more  readily available for the education program spearheaded  by chairmen Mr. Ron Seal,  assisted by public health  nurses Trudy Finlay, Val Morrison, Ruth McClughan, Diane  Hart and Bernice Tyson in the  three areas and for the ser-  vice-to-patients work under  Mrs. Patti Malcolm whose  phone number is 883-9015, a  number you should note now,  as it will not be listed under  the name of the Cancer  Society until the new phone  books come out in the fall.  Completing the executive is  Mrs. Fran Ovens who, on  request, visits mastectomy  patients in hospital or at home  and is available to speak to  small groups on breast self-  examination, give psychological support and show the pro-  theses available to those who  have had the operation. Mrs.  Rankin represents the O.E.S.  There is also another Mrs.  Rankin who is available to talk  to those who have had a colostomy.  The work of the Unit was  outlined at the forum held in  Chatelech School on March  24. Dr. Bernstein spoke on the  causes and symptoms of cancer and ably answered questions referred to him by those  present.  Vancouver District coordinator for the Canadian  Cancer Society, Mrs. Vivian  Topvotten, has assisted the  Unit since its formation last  year but is going to work in  another field and was present  to introduce her replacement, Mr. Rick Lengert, who  has taken over her duties as  of May I.  It is hoped that the residents of the Sunshine Coast  will become familiar with the  work of the local unit and  make use of its services  when required.  /sA sunshine j  XJ?

Come cry with me  by Ann Napier  Dear Ann,  I've had two friends that  have had their houses burn  while they were away.  It makes me worry. Insurance is one thing, but so  much is irreplaceable. Pictures,  keepsakes, what can I do to  prevent losing everything?  Aware  Dear Aware,  That's the first step���next a  safety deposit box for jewelry  and papers. Then have a member  of the family keep negatives and  some duplicate pictures. It's a  problem we all have to deal  with���so caution seems to be all  we can use.  Dear Ann,  I don't think women's liberation works in all ways. It  seems to me and my friends  who are single, that when we  come on to a man, sexually, he  seems to retreat. If one has a  job or property some men  won't make a pass. Why is this?  Bothered  Dear Bothered,  Men have been bred to be the  aggressors. If they weren't,  through the ages they were eaten  or killed. They protected their  mate and children. It's ingrained  in them to make the moves and  they feel out of their element  when the roles are reversed. Not  all men of course. Keep looking.  Dear Ann,  I have friends that arc having  a friendly divorce. What do you  make of a marriage where each  partner has a lover, but they get  along just fine, electing to part  friends?  Bewildered  Dear Bewildered,  You'd think if they were so  harmonious they could make  their marriage work. But I'd call  it an open marriage. Some  people haven't sown their wild  oats. When the dew is off the  rose, they want to adventure  some more. Others know they  have found the only one and are  satisfied. We are so different and  " STTridlliKa WW condltlBIfetf1>)r*'  our parents. The combination is  endless, so two people are  friends but not good married  partners forever. It happens a  lot.  Dear Ann,  I have had a friend for many  years. Lately we don't seem to  be hitting it off. The fun of  being together is gone. What  should I do about it? It seems a  waste of time. Is it just  temporary or have we changed.  Removed  Dear Removed,  It happens that as our life  progresses we grow away from  some people. We take a separate  path. We have different interests. That's not a deep friendship. I've found no matter how  long we've been apart and no  matter what the differences in  lives, some real friends never  change. The closeness and  warmth, the pleasure of their  company, never changes. A real  friend, is a friend for life.  Dear Ann,  I've just had one ofthe most  embarrassing moments of my  life. When actually making love  to have my mother walk in on  me. I think even though it's my  apartment, I'll never be able to  look her in the face and forget  this terrible moment. Will she  think less of a daughter she  thought she'd brought up a  certain way?  Blown Aw3y  'Dear Blown Away  As much as I hate to surprise  you, you weren't really brought  by the stork. Your mother  understands the relationship  between man and woman. No  one can judge how you must live  your life. By all means lock your  door. Make a little joke or just  look at her and see what she  says. People who love you aren't  as severe as you think. If you're  old enough to have your own  apartment then it must be your  choice how you conduct your  intimate life.

M4T 1M8  A $20,000 million per year  price tag for international arms  trade seems unable to guarantee peace. Like a teenager  battling acne, efforts to ensure  world peace seem fated to  frustration. Ireland, Rhodesia,  Iran, Afghanistan. No sooner is  one eruption lanced or cosmetically camouflaged than  another erupts.  The Soviet invasion of Afghanistan illustrates once again  the fragile and illusive character of peace. Economic,  cultural and social boundaries  are constantly being transgressed, as the case of the U.S.  and Canada aptly demonstrates. But when the action is  military, concern escalates.  And, in the age of push-button  destruction, questions of an  appropriate response become  urgent.  When an invaded country  consents, or is a threat to  another's security or is grossly  abusing its citizens���all have  been advanced as justification  for one nation transgressing the  boundaries bf ahbther. Bur the'  question of who decides, what  is consent, or when one country  is really being threatened by  another or what constitutes  gross abuse, always muddies  the ethical waters and makes  foreign political action hazardous and grey. Nevertheless,  countries must respond to the  actions of other countries.  Military responses should  not be contemplated just to  save face or to prove who is the  toughest among the international heavyweights. They  can only be envisioned as a last-  ditch strategy aimed���always  ironically���at safeguarding the  welfare of the invaded country  and its citizens and at promoting world peace and justice.  Physical violence is condemned  when it is utilized by junkies  looking for a fix. It cannot be  condoned by nations out to  ensure a constant supply of  their drugs, whether they be oil,  raw resources or political  power.  No nation is independent  and self-sufficient. There are  many strings that can be pulled  to urge the Soviet Union to  withdraw its military presence  and support of the puppet  Afghanistan government. They  must be pulled before the  military are loosed. One of  those strings is making the  delivery of foodstuffs to the  U.S.S.R. conditional upon the  withdrawal.  The use of food as a political  weapon is always to be regretted. And seldom can it be  justified, not even to ensure a  continuous supply of oil,  coffee, or tobacco, or cheap  labour. But when the prospect  of a Third World War casts its  mushroom-shaped shadow, the  use of food as a weapon may be  the lesser of evils. In the long  run, it may be more humane,  more just, more loving to force  Soviet citizens to eat less meat  and to endure the dehumaniz-  ation of deprivation than it is to  blast them���and ourselves���  out of existence. But even then  we cannot be sure it will work.  884-7454  "U��4��r Ik* OffMR CiMpy"  ��m ��� CmUt Hum  OPEN 7 DAYS A WEEK  Last call for  YELLOW PAGE LISTINGS  Sunshine Coast  Directory  THE YELLOW PAGES SECTION of your new telephone directory  is closing NOW!

An Ian Corrance photograph  A new listing in last week's SUNSHINE COAST REALTOR for 102 acres at  Mixal Lake in Irvines Landing was mispriced. This was a classic instance of the  high value of the figure zero, and the price should have read $180,000 not  $18,000. The publishers wish to apologize to H.B. Gordon Agencies and to our  readers for this oversight. I first became aware of this error on Nob Hill (from  which vantage point the photograph in last week's Realtor was taken) where I  was picknicking with our Editor John Burnside, and fellow-workers, Lyn Fabio  and Frances Berger when John said he'd like to buy that acreage. At first I was  incredulous, and then 1 suspected that an error had been made. My suspicions  were confirmed when we descended from Nob Hill and checked at the Coast  News Office. I would like to buy that property for $ 18,000 too, and so would the  rest of the world, but we would need H.G. Wells' time machine to take us back  to 1949 when H.B. Gordon Ltd. opened an office on Cowrie Street in Sechelt,  the first licensed Real Estate Office to be opened on the Sunshine Coast. At  less than$l,800per acre, this offering seems to be well worth investigating in  1980.  The Sunshine Coast Realtor processes well over 300 advertisements each  week, and I can recall only one other pricing error. In over 5,000 listings this  year such a margin must be regarded as infinitesimal, and the people involved  in the production of this publication are pleased with the reputation it has  gained for quality since it became a weekly publication at the beginning of the  year. It is highly regarded by the Real Estate Board of Greater Vancouver and  by its readers and users inside and outside of the Real Estate profession. All of  the people from Glassford Press Limited take pride in the production of the  Sunshine Coast Realtor and of its sister publication, the Sunshine Coast  News, the Coast's award-winning, locally-owned newspaper. Its coverage of  news from Port Mellon to Edmont is second to none, and its general interest  columns have been widely recognised. A subscription to the newspaper which  includes the Sunshine Coast Realtor, costs only $12 for six months and $20 for  one year available from Glassford Press Limited, P.O. Box 460, Gibsons, B.C.
