Array LEGISLATIVE LIBRARY  Parliament Buildings  VICTORIA, B.C.  V8V 1X4  Historic house greets the New Year  The historic Inglis house in (iihsons was, until recently, neglected and decay inn, hut is now being restored by  owners. -j��ih &�������% himm  by John Burnside  As 1981 gives way to 1982 on the Sunshine Coast,  one of the most gratifying stories involves the  restoration of the old Inglis residence across  Highway 101 from the head of Gibsons wharf.  In any history of (he Sunshine Coast 'old Doc Inglis' place' would command a central place. For two  generations the house was the centre for medical care  on this stretch of coast. Two generations of doctors.  Dr. Frederick Inglis and his son Dr. Hugh Inglis,  provided the Coast's only medical service with the  big,white family home as their base.  It served as office and surgery and from it the Drs.  Inglis, father and son, travelled the coast, first by  horse, then motor bike, and finally by the area's first  cars over dreadful roads to bring medical help to the  needy.  It was to the big white house across from Gibsons  Harbour that the family of J.S. Woodsworlh came  when he made his final break from the church during  the First World War. Within its roomy and  hospitable walls a place was found for Mrs.  Woodsworlh and her five children as her husband  went off to find work on the longshoring docks in  Vancouver and his place in the history books as the  founder of the CCF parly in Canada.  Both in local and in national lerms the 'Inglis  place' is an authentic, historic sile. From its site went  forth a goodly portion of the humanity and compassion of the early years of this area and some of the  most enlightened ideas on human society to grace I lie  paper of Canadian history.  In the middle years of the last decade the days of  the house seemed numbered. A plan to turn it into a  neighbourhood pub seemed well advanced until the  applicants were thwarted by a change in provincial  government,  When its possible redemption as a public house  was abandoned early in 1977 ii began what seemed to  be its terminal decline. In the fall of 1978 it had served as temporary home for a long line of itinerants, including a couple of Scottish newspapermen of this  area, and finally as a group home for a visiting band  of Kaiimavik youth.  Thereafter for two winters it sal empty and  forlorn, unhealed in cold winters with water pipes  bursting and saturating ceilings. The end of the  storied house seemed at hand.  In May 1980, however, a young local couple,  Kaihy Love and Rob Hagar, bought the property and  with love and energy and as Kaihy says 'a little help  from our friends' began the long process of bringing  the fine old house back lo a much deserved respectability.  Today it sits in its accustomed place above Gibsons  Harbour, sparkling in its new coal of paint and inhabited again by loving and appreciative owners.  The people of the Sunshine Coast, and possibly Unpeople of Canada, owe a debt of gratitude lo Kathy  Love and Rob Hagar. For our pan al the Coast  News, the slory of the redemption of the 'Inglis  place' seemed as good and hopeful a note as any to  mark the beginning of a new year. As a symbol of the  old renewing itself for fresh lasks it serves as a comfort to us all. Happy New Year.

Although service is very limited in the initial phase of  the project the new bus service, called Paralransii  will eventually provide transportation al convenient  times for shoppers, senior citizens, teenagers and  children from Egmonl lo Porl Mellon.  Effective January I, an agreemeni signed between  the provincial Urban Transit Authority (UTA) and  ihe Sunshine Coast Regional District will provide  funds for ihe public transportation service which is  expecled to cost $72,282 in 1982.  The SCRD will cover aboul 20% of ihe cosl, ap-  proximalely $15,700 and fares are expecled lo cott-  tribute $21,685.  Commuters belween Gibsons and Sechelt, where  ihe service is now available, can expect lo pay $1 a  ride, a return trip will cosl $2. Halfmoon Bay  residents will be able lo catch a lift inio Sechelt for  75C and for an extra quarter ride inlo Gibsons.  Katie Sonnlag, co-ordinalor of ihe Sunshine Coasi  Community Services Society will dispatch the  minibus from. Ihe society's office at The Dock on  Cowrie Street in Sechelt.  "Basically, the minibus service and schedule will  be ihe same as it has been," Sonnlag told ihe Coast  News. "Priority will be given lo ihe senior citizens  and handicapped people who hav always made use  B'f Ihe service and extra space on the bus will be  available to other commuters."  The Department of Human Resources has financed ihe Minibus service since 1974. Sonnlag said Ihe  bus makes three daily runs belween Sechelt and Gibsons, Monday lo Friday from 8 a.m. lo 5 p.m. There  will be no evening or Saturday irips. An Occasional  irip is made by ihe bus lo belween Halfmoon Bay  and Sechelt.  "I'm pleased lo announce that ihe regional district  has provided the funds lo enable this necessary service lo continue," stated SCRD board chairman  Brian Sielck. "We're starling off in a small way, bui  I'm confident thai the service will expand as residents  lake advantage of it."  Stelck stated thai planning is underway for possible expansion of service later in ihe year and eventually to have three minibuses operating. The system  is expecled lo provide 7,560 rides in Ihe first year.  The only other transportation service available lo  coast residents, Maverick Bus Lines offers daily service on ihe coast three times a day belween Langdale  and Egmonl. Fares cosl $2.25 for a trip between  Sechelt and Gibsons, with children under II paying  half fares.  The Minibus schedule is available on Community  TV Channel 10 or by calling Kalie Sonnlag al  885-5881. Tickels for ihe new service can be obtained  al Gibsons and Sechelt Municipal Halls oral the Sunshine Coast Community Services Society office. The  bus drivers will not carry tickets and commuters arc  asked to phone ihe Society office to check the  schedule and reserve seals on lite Minibus.  Tickels can be bought al $20. per book and there  will not be any reduced fares for children.  First of all, I would like lo wish everyone on ihe  Sunshine Coast a prosperous and happy New Year  after our winter of discontent. We have ihe opportunity lo provide a brighter future for all of us  despite the current economic conditions, but we will  have to be more careful and thoughtful aboui the  way we as individuals and we as government plan and  spend.  Something that particularly disturbs me al the moment is the way in which properly assessments have  risen so drastically. These assessments were made in  more buoyant economic limes and there can be little  doubt that the property values assessed in the spring  do nol reflect their actual values now. I would like to  stress how important it is for every properly owner lo  review his new assessments and compare them to last  year's. If the new assessments seem totally out of  line, the owner should write a letter lo the assessment  authorities and present himself to the court of revision on or before January 20ih.  Finally, I'd like to say that ihe community spirit  and feeling of togetherness among ihe people of ihe  Sunshine Coast has never been belter and if we can  maintain this feeling and our unique lifestyle, I can  see nothing but improvement for ihe future.  A New Year's message seems lo require a glance  back al what has been, before one looks ahead at  whai will be. The year just passed has been one of  changes. Local real estate experienced a "boom"  early in the year, which slowed almost lo a "busi"  with ihe sharp increase in mortgage interest rules.  The labour situation, locally and provincially, was  one of unrest as people watched inflation spiral upward more rapidly than their incomes. The need for  public transportation on the Sunshine Coast was emphasized by Ihe death of a popular young hitchhiker,  Now we begin 1982. Inflation is still a major problem, but is now compounded by unemployment,  which the federal government tells us will remain  high. This must therefore be a year of caution and  restraint.  Necessary set >iccs must be continued at an acceptable level, and such new services as we can afford  should be begun, but always beating in mind thai the  taxpayer (we) must be able lo pay the bill. The old expression "Where ihere's a will, there's a way" may  once more remind us lo use more innovative ways of  achieving ihe same end.  When we, collectively, waill something ihe taxpayer cannot, or uoes not waul to pay for, then those  of us who want it will have lo gel out and work for it  ourselves. Some of ihe most successful projects are  those where people work together lo build ihe  facilities they want. I cite the first Gibsons library,  the first Gibsons Health Unit building, the Gibsons  Winter Club and ihe Sunshine Coast Golf and Country Club.  So while we must be careful, wc can't stop improving our community. I urge you all lo join with incina  spirii of camion, but also optimism and dciermina-  lion, lo keep this I lie "Greatest Lillle Town  Anywhere".  Many helped by  Christmas Elves  The Elves Club made up and distributed food  hampers lo 164 underprivileged families on ihe Coast  - from Porl Mellon to Egmonl. 4100 food hems and  820 gifts and toys were given oui.  The hampers included such items as turkeys and  Christmas cakes, all the ingredients needed to make a  Christmas dinner and more.  The members found that a lot of people were  unusually hard-up this season, for some the hamper  providing their only Christmas cheer. One recipient  said, "It's like a gift from heaven". One older lady  has been receiving a hamper every Christmas for the  last leu years, while raising a grandchild. This year,  ihe granddaughter grown up, she no longer needs  help and gave a donation.  On Christmas ihe customary distribution of  rosebuds lo patients at St. Mary's Hospilal look  place.  The Miracle of Christmas was renewed in many  ways, ihe donation of 150 lurkeys by iwo local  businessmen, ihe 100 beautifully wrapped toys and  gifts given by a local business, a donation of approximately $400 worth of food by a local lady, boxes of  new toys, the gift of a local gentleman, the proceeds  of a raffle by a local club.

Starting out the year  with high principles is refreshing  -we'll see how well we've made out  next December.  Fifst of all, the Coast News, a  locally, co-operatively owned and  operated enterprise is a social-  democratic newspaper.

Secondly, we are a small business  and we hope to thrive and grow. It is  our goal to be the best weekly  newspaper in Western Canada.  Some weeks we think we make it  -others we're not so sure.  Finally of course, we are here to  serve the community. We do this  through our advertising, through  our reporting of community events  and through our editorial pages.  We welcome all letters to the  editor. Sometimes, particularly if  letters are more than 200 to 300  words or require extensive correction, we don't print them. Occasionally where we know the facts in  a letter to be incorrect or misleading  we don't print them. Other than  that, we try to print all letters and  welcome the open and lively debate  provided by this correspondence.  We hope that this year we will do  our job well and that you our  readers will help us make our paper  even better.  ...from the files of the COAST NEWS  FIVE YEARS AGO  The Coast News enters the  new year under new management. The new company when  incorporated will be known as  Glassford Press Limited in  honour of one of the pioneer  families of Gibsons, where the  Coast News office is located.  Ian Corrance will be the advertising manager. The French fact  of Canada is represented by the  presence of Manuane Laplante  as bookkeeper-receptionist in  the front office. John Burnside  returns to the Coast News as  editor.  The entire staff of the Coast  News looks forward to the opportunity to serve the communities of this area.  TEN YEARS AGO  The Brakstads in the Lower  Bay report the presence of a  beautiful fully grown trumpeter  swan, at present keeping company with 40-odd mallards being  fed by Carol, Lars and their  neighbours.  The swan came to them out of  a storm driven sky ten days ago  and with the ducks is being  looked after by the Hammonds  during the day and they all  report to the Brakstads for their  evening handout.  FIFTEEN YEARS AGO  Resolutions, like piecrusts  were made to be broken. Janus,  the two-faced mythological die-  ty of ancient lore Is the root  word for January, the first month  of the year. The fact that he is  two-faced contains a connotation which perhaps gives resolution makers an easy out of living  up to their resolve.  Perhaps resolution makers  might come to within the present news media hubbub known  as the credibility gap. There will  be a pronounced gap between  resolution and performance.  TWENTY YEARS AGO  Less than a year after he had  congratulated Dr. E.A.M.  Asselbergs on developing instant mashed potatoes for Canadian manufacture, Agriculture  Minister Alvln Hamilton found  himself commending the scientist for adapting the same process to fish, turnips, pumpkins  and cheese in packaged form.  TWENTY-FIVE YEARS AGO  The Powell ,River bus, to Vancouver crowded with Christmas  travellers plunged off the  highway and careened down a  steep rocky embankment in the  black of night.  It happened where the  highway runs by Ruby Lake between Earls Cove and Kleindale  near Pender Harbour.  The heavy vehicle rolled over  three times for nearly 100 feet  down an almost perpendicular  slope of jagged rocks and was  saved from going into the lake  by a clump of trees which wedged it upright standing on its  wheels, lights still burning,  though badly wrecked.  Oliver Dubois, well known logging operator, brought stretchers and a truck which served  as an ambulance. Jerry Gordon  also assisted with transportation to rush the injured to  hospital.  All the Injured were given  treatment at St. Mary's and only  five had to remain over the  holidays.  THIRTY YEARS AGO  The Village of Gibsons was  further enriched by receipt of a  cheque for $4,700, part of the  S.S. and M.A. returns from the  provincial government.  In a covering letter the  minister of finance informed the  council it could plan on a further  $2,300 from the same source  sometime in June. "This will  help with compilation of the  budget," the letter said.  The budget will be set by the  new council in January.

Pender Harbour, about 1912. In 1890, Benjamin Rogers had  organized the British Columbia Sugar Refining Company, and by  the next year had built a refinery on Burrard Inlet. In 1912,  Rogers acquired the steam yacht 'Aquilo', which had been  brought from New York via the Straits of Magellan to the Pacific  Northwest in 1910. The 'Aquilo' was 160 feet in length, its hull of  wrought iron, and It was powered by a triple expansion steam  engine. It was flagship of the Vancouver Yacht Club and Ben  jamin Rogers was Commodore when this scene was taken at the  entrance to Garden Bay. In the Strait of Georgia, Commodore  Rogers raced to a 1-1 tie with the 'Selma' former Marquis of  Anglesey yacht, which had also rounded South America. The  'Aquilo' was sold to Seattle interests in 1918. During succeeding  decades, however, it appeared, as yacht or charter vessel, on  cruises along the Northwest coast. Photo courtesy B.C.

Peterson  Slings & Arrows^^  George MatthewsP**-  The new year comes in  brilliant and clean as  though to a world which  had not heard of the  greed, stupidity, and corruption of its predominant species.  As we turn this new  page of the years may we  hope for a discernible  growth in the realization  that our embattled  species shares the same  planetary spaceship with  its fragile life support  systems. Without a  discernible growth in appreciation of the fact  that we all share a common destiny with common aspirations and  common needs it is  possible that the story of  man will lurch to a inglorious end.  A vision of a future of  plenty and peace is still  possible but the achievement of that vision will  require that we live in  less of a haze of smug  self-satisfaction or  cynical, despairing  apathy than has been the  case since the end of the  Second World War.  Of all the struggles of  aspiration against  privilege and repression  at play on the world's  stage as 1982 begins, the  events in Poland have  commanded the most attention. Surely the events  there, or what we know  of them, must command  our attention and our  sympathy.  In a cold, northern  country, not unlike  Canada in its climate,  there is a portion of  mankind which through  the mismanagement of  those in power faces this  winter without adequate  supplies of food and  without certain means of  keeping themselves  warm. The suffering taking place there must  strike the heart.  The tragic situation in  Poland is a testimony to  the fact that government  by a doctrinaire and centralized elite is an inefficient way to conduct the  affairs of mankind. The  Polish bureaucracy has  blundered in its utilization of the resources of  people and goods  available to it. Its total  commitment to heavy industrialization in a country which once was a  land of agricultural plenty has led to the present  tragic dilemma.  What is disconcerting  about the situation,  apart ffom the terrible  suffering of the Polish  people, is the whiff of  hypocrisy that permeates  the righteous posturings  of President Ronald  Reagan and his gung-ho  government, themselves  well along the way of  Herbert Hoover toward  the destruction of the  world's strongest  economy.  It is perhaps just a little too early to accuse the  American government of  centralized decision  making as inept as that  which brought the Polish  economy into its present  impasse. Next new year  will be time enough for  the extent of the  economic pit into which  Reagonomics is taking  much of the western  world to be gauged.  It is not, however, too  early to raise the question of American support for military governments of brutally  repressive tendencies  around the world. Can  the situation in Poland,  for example, be worse  than the continuing  slaughter taking place in  El Salvador by a military  government armed with  American weapons and  fuelled by American  money? Can the situation in Poland be worse  than the continuing  slaughter in the name of  repression by the government of Argentina whose  president was recently  welcomed to the White  House? To go back a few  years,   is   anything  in  Poland more dreadful  than the rounding up  and mass executions of  supporters of a  democratically-elected  government in Chile?  The miliary government  whicti overthrew Allende  and slaughtered his supporters ..won quick approval from the United  States of America, and  Canada too.  The essential point  about liberty and the  emancipation of man  from the economic  shackles which have  bound him throughout  history is that it is indivisible. A passionate  concern for human liberties cannot be selective in  its application.  If Ronald Reagan  must cry out in anger at  the suffering of the  Polish people and at  their loss of liberty, then  let it be remembered that  no man in the world is in  a position better fitted to  lessen such suffering or  such loss.  If the President of the  United States is a man  moved to stern fervour  by the events in Poland  he could mark it best by  applying the same yardstick by which he  measures the Polish  government to the many  military dictatorships  supported by his country  in the suffering world.  If the years ahead of  mankind are to be happy  ones we can be assured  that hypocrisy and  political opportunism  will not be what makes  them so.  This holiday season,  as pleasant as it was, was  marred in one important  aspect which I'm sure I  shared with several  million other poor souls.  I became the victim of an  insidious little device  known as the Rubik's  Cube. The cube in itself  is a rather harmless and  clever little mechanism  which presents itself in  the form of a puzzle.  Harmless, that is, until  placed in the hands of  one of those cursed beings who fancy  themselves smart  enought to resolve complicated problems. Then  the thing turns its owner  into a mathematical  monster and proves to be  the most dangerous  device to come from  behind the Iron Curtain  fully wrapped, which  turned out to be the cursed cube. Had I ended up  with it no problem would  have emerged. I have  neither the wit nor arrogance to mess with  such odious mechanisms. Had I ended up  with the nasty thing I  would have put it to  to good use as a paper  weight.  Unfortunately in the  last few exchanges of  gifts, the miserable  machine was acquired by  my girl friend in whose  quick and clever fingers  the device eventually attained its truly monstrous original intent.   .  On the way home in  the car she made the  mistake of rotating the  thing a few times in such  a way as to disrupt its  since the invention of the original configuration.  January  Again I reply to the triple winds  running chromatic fifths of derision  outside my window:  Play louder.  You will not succeed. I am  bound more to my sentences  the more you batter at me  to follow you.  And the wind,  as before, fingers perfectly  its derisive music.  ��� William Carlos Williams  perogy.  Rubik's cube, as I'm  sure tens of millions have  discovered to their  dismay, is a cube with  six, three inch, coloured  faces, each made up of  nine tiny moveable cubes  which can be  manipulated in several  billion combinations.  The object of the damnable thing is to disorient  the coloured faces and  then reorient them in  such a way as to end up  with the six faces their  original colours. This  process can take years  for some people, to as  quickly as 26 seconds for  indolent youths who  have nothing better to do  with their time.  My unpleasant relationship with the cube  began in the most serendipitous of ways. At a  party of friends in early  December we exchanged  secret gifts with one  another. The gifts were  small and not meant for  anyone in particular.  Each person as he received his gift was allowed to  keep it or could exchange  it for one held by someone else. As a result  of this exercise I almost  ended up with a little  square .package,  beautifully wrapped,  which turned out to be  the cursed cube. Had I  ended up with it no problem would have emerged. I have neither the wit  nor arrogance to mess  with such odious  mechanisms. Had I ended up with the nasty  thing I would have out it  square package, beauti-  This one simple act, the  twentieth century  equivalent to taking the  first bite of the apple,  ruined her and, as a  result, me for the rest of  the holidays.  After two weeks pf  twisting and turning the  cube, she was able to get  one face back to its  original form. She  became obsessed with  the thing. Its squeaking  and squeaking and clicking replaced civilized  conversation. Her  thoughts dwelt on the  repulsive little toy. She  confessed to having  nightmares about it. In  the midst of our increasingly rare discourse, her  eyes would glaze over  and she would sink into a  thoughtful trance as she  tried to conceive of a  new way to attack the  cube.  I tried everything to  rid the poor girl of this  dreadful compulsion. I  hid the cube. She found  it. It was as though it  emanated its own special  force which could attract  its owner's mind to the  secret location. I tried to  kill the cube. I left it in  the dog's food bowl hoping it would be eaten.  The dog, in league with  its mistress, gently  returned it. I put the  cube under the back  wheel of the car hoping  an "accident" might occur. The dog found it  and once again returned  it.

Coast News, January 4,1982  Towards a wider perspective  plie pain of Poland  by Geoffrey  Madoc-Jones  I The news that Poland  is now being ruled by the  army is very sobering indeed.  General Wojciech Jar-  vzelski, the first professional soldier to take  political command of a  Communist country,  seems to have got his  orders from the Soviet  Union; either you do it,  "or we will. What triggered the action is not  clear. It may have been  the recent radicalization  of Lech Walensa, the recent call by Solidarity for  a national referendum or  the rapidly worsening  economic situation.  Neither is it clear yet  whether all, or merely  some, of the reforms  gained by Solidarity will  be wiped out. The role of  the Communist Party as  a viable political force in  the count i y, after martial law ends, is also at  this time not discernible.  si However, the Polish  crisis does point to three  -fundamental problems  which plague all Warsaw  Pact countries to some  extent. They are: firstly,  'the provision of adequate avenues for the expression of political  discontent and its corollary - periodic transfer  of power. In a pluralistic  society which gives a  choice to electors,  however limited, there is  the possibility for  discontent to flow  towards   the   political  I leadership and thereby  effect either policy  changes or replacement  ��� of the policy makers. At  - times the situation does  become unbalanced and  it becomes difficult for  new leadership to  emerge.  However, in a one-  party state which exists  on a basic belief that it is  the only true expression  of people's needs and  which regards any  criticism of its policies,  from outside, as heresy,  the expression of real  concerns, about the state  of the Polish economy  for example, becomes  extremely difficult. It is  viewed as a traitorous  act, to country and to  revolution, which must  be suppressed.  The transfer of power  to an alternative leadership, with a new vision  and perhaps answers,  has no orderly" procedure. It can only be  done by force.  The second problem  faced by the Warsaw  Pact countries is an  economic one. It centres  around the belief that  centralized planning  works. While it is true  that there are differences  in the amount of central  control used in differing  countries, the economic  woes facing Poland are  being reflected  elsewhere, in Rumania  for example.  The centrally managed  economy, like the one-  party state, must have  overall and constant control. At a time when  Western technology is a  de-centralizing force,  micro-computers and  Xerox machines for example, Toffler's Third  Wave, the Warsaw Pact  economies are attempting to modernize within  an inappropriate plann-  Slings (continued)  'operate, she threw the  " thing against the wall  ' and it flew into several  ���"dozen pieces.

"Ifyouwanttogetme  a present," she intoned,  "They have several new  kinds of Rubik puzzles  now."  Needless to say, I  didn't hear a word she  said. I was busy with the  cube.  For all your Carpets  ing and decision making  structure.  Ironically, both the  views of the central planners and the supply  siders are based upon a  nineteenth century  model of an industrial  economy.  The third problem is  of course a military one.  There is a genuine need  for the Soviet Union to  have secure borders. The  terrible sacrifices made  by Russia during World  War Two broke the back  of the Nazi war machine  and embedded in the  Soviet psyche a deep-  seated fear of foreign invasion. The question is:  would less rigidly controlled satellites, on the  Finnish model for example, lead to a lessening in  Soviet security? Certainly the appearance of  right wing organizations  in Poland recently shows  that the old hatreds are  still alive, but is it really  necessary to control  political experimentation  leading probably to some  form of Social  Democracy, with tanks  and bayonets? A stable,  prosperous, free Poland  surely makes Russia  more secure.  Martial law means  that a country is at war  with itself. Canada was  the first government to  declare it in the 1970's.  India suffered under its  heavy hand for a few  years. Let us hope that as  in these two examples  when the situation in  Poland has stabilized,  there will be a return to  civil law and a normal  political climate. Unfortunately, the recent  histories of Hungary and  Czechoslovakia make  one pessimistic.  80 years on  A newsman's  byFredCruice mCIIlOirS  In other days retired  editors picked up their  pens and wrote and  wrote. This retired editor  will peck at his  typewriter which he has  allowed to rest for many  years, and unfold an 85  year life, which may or  may not be an example  to any of the younger  generation that cares to  read.  Born in London,  England on June 15th,  1896, christened Wilfred  Cruice, later reduced to  Fred Cruice, I attended  School at Rodney Place  not far from the famed  Elephant and Castle. At  the age of nine and about  to enter the second standard of British junior  schooling, the family to  shake off the dust of  London, and, travelling  via Liverpool boarded  the R.M.S. Canada taking eight days to reach  the shores of Nova  Scotia, landing at  Halifax on April 5,1905.  There the family of  two boys and mother,  aided by help from the  immigration officials  and the Salvation Army,  existed for one month in  the immigration hall  while hard-pressed  mother sought accommodation she could afford.  Settling down eventually, mother opened a  pastry shop on Lower  Water Street near Corn-  wallis Street. Little occurred in our Halifax  lives and the time came  for another move after  three years in Halifax,  this time to Montreal.  Removal from the  Halifax school system to  Montreal did not aid the  education of two junior  lads who were moved  back a couple of grades  because their knowledge  of the French language  was nil. This meant that  the older of the two  boys, myself, reached  the age of 14 when about  to move up to grade six.  Then he was informed he  had to go out and earn  some income  This he did in various  ways, telegraph  messenger boy, drug  store delivery boy and so  on. But a bright spot appeared when my younger  brother and I were able  to join the choir of the  church of St. John the  Evangelist at St. Urbain  and Ontario Streets. This  choir of about 50 men  and boys under the direction of Charles Fosberry,  who was also somewhat  of an artist with paints,  sang some of the  beautiful church music,  ranging all the way from  Palestrina to moderns  such as Stainer, Woodward and many others.  While in the choir, we  were also given a week's  holiday each summer  down in the Lake  Champlain country  where there were plenty  of apple trees off which  we ate many and saved  the cores for our nightly  battle in our fair-sized  tent.  Membership in the  choir involved three  practice nights a week,  two for sopranos only  and the third in the  chancel - a full choir.

The Hospital Auxiliary's meetings have  been changed to the  evening. They're still  every second Monday of  the month, so the next  one is January 11th at  7:30 at St. Aidan's Hall.  New Horizons also  starts January 11th at  1:30 at the Community  Hall. Seniors meet every  Monday afternoon for  cards, carpet bowling  and other activities.  Newcomers are always  welcome and bridge  players particularly seem  to be in demand.  And it's time to start  getting back into shape  for Fitness Class. It  starts next Monday as  well. This session's morning classes al the Community Hall start at 9  and 10:15 Mondays,  Wednesdays and  Fridays. Evening classes  are Mondays, Tuesdays  and Thursdays at  Elphinstone starting at 7.  Get there early to register  at the first class.  The Rainbow Preschool is opening on  January 19th at Camp  Douglas on Beach  Avenue. There will be  both a morning and  afternoon class  Tuesdays, Wednesdays  and Thursdays for  children 3 to 5 years of  age and fees will be $40  per month.  For donations, further  information about the  program, and enrollment, contact Val Silver  al   885-2468   before  January 10th.  Promises to keep.  Now what about those  New Year's resolutions?  Predictably, most of  them heard after the excesses of the holidays  were promises not to  drink and carry on so  much.  Annie Dempster has  taken her vows as  "Rebecca" and Glen  Kraus is also "changing  his image". Nobody was  too sure what he meant,  but it might have had  something to do with his  new "Andy Capp" cap.  And to settle a discussion of grammar that  arose on New Year's  Eve: we all drink a bit  too much on occasion  and most of us drank a  lot that night, but few of  us have drunk enough to  pass out on someone  else's bathroom floor!  Happy New Year and  all the best for 1982!  Receivership  reports denied  A report on a Vancouver radio station that The  Jolly Roger resort has been placed in receivership was  denied Saturday by a spokesman for the Jolly Roger.  "As of today, yesterday and the day before, I have  not received any notification that the Jolly Roger is  in receivership", slated resori spokesman Brian  Stelck.  "1 guess every business is fiaviiig a'lfrlTfcutnfme:*'  right now and I can't say that those reports won't be  irue next week,-next month or nexi year; but as of  right now the receivership reports are, lo ihe best of  my knowledge, false," Stelck told the Coast News.  Stelck attributed the report to a misinterpretation  of a statement regarding a cheque sent to the Jolly  Roger by someone who owed money to Ihe resort,  who was told the bank would hold ihe funds until  after Christmas. Stelck suggested the money was held  due to Christmas mailing problems, rather than  financial difficulties.

For Information  886-2615  885-5664  The excitement, the  parlies, the over indulgences of the holiday  season are over until nexl  December. Most of us  will try hard to begin the  new year on the right  fool by making one or  two new years resolutions. It's very easy to  make these resolutions  but quite another lo  make them slick.  "Willpower alone  quite often is not enough  lo change that old bad  habit", says Richmond  hypnotherapist Hal  Booker. "After years of  repetitions, a person  needs more than  willpower lo effect permanent change. These  habits have sunk below  ihe level of conscious  control and have become  subconscious processes.  Therefore l hey must be  changed through communication with the subconscious part of the  mind.  "All habitual  behaviour is controlled  by   the   subconscious.  "By gaining the cooperation of your subconscious,"   continues  GIBSONS RCMP:  Gibsons RCMP  reports that they experienced a relatively  calm and uneventful  holiday season this year.  Between the 18lh and the  31st there were several  minor fender benders  mostly due to the road  conditions. Seventeen of  such incidents were  reported. Only two of  these involved minor injuries, both on the 24th.  On the 18th: There was a  break and entry of a  house under construction in the Sargeant  Road area. Thieves stole  a thermos, a can of  Swedish oil and a lumber  jacket.  On the 19th: Two houses  were broken into and  completely ransacked in  the Gibsons area.  Nothing appears to have  been taken.  On the 20th: $75 worth  of meat was stolen from  the freezer of a private  residence in Gibsons.  On the 23rd: A Husqvar-  na chainsaw valued at  $525 was stolen from a  pick-up parked at the  Langdale Ferry Terminal.  On Ihe 28th: Entry into a  Roberts Creek residence  was gained by smashing  a window. Several articles were stolen  although no complete  estimate of the theft is  available at the moment,  pending complete investigation by the police.  SECHELT RCMP  Except for a rash of  automobile mishaps  resulting from snow and  icy roads, Sechelt police  report a relatively quiet  holiday season. Among  incidents reported are  the following:  On the 27th: There was a  report of a theft of  licence plates from a car  parked in the South  Coast Ford parking lot.  On the 28th: A red Nor-  co bicycle was reported  stolen from a home on  Spindrift Road.  On the 30th: Halfmoon  Bay fireball was vandalized. Reports state  $70 damage was done.  A red "Steel" tool box  and $400 worth of tools  was taken from a vehicle  parked at Snodgrass  Road. The vehicle was  broken into.  On the 31st: The Correc-  tions Department  forestry camp at Britton  River was destroyed by  fire. The 17 inmates were  taken to Haney Correctional Institute by two  corrections officers. The  fire marshall is investigating the cause of  the blaze.  The Madeira Park  Legion was broken into  and a large amount of II-  quor was stolen.

Sechelt  Garden  Club  by J. MacLeod  The Garden Club held  its Christmas Party at St.  Hilda's Church hall early  lasi month. Once again  Win Hornet was l he convenor and she with her  good committee provided an excellent dinner  and an enjoyable evening. We had not one but  two Santas who saw that  every person present  received a present that  was related to some  gardening activity.  Many of the Garden  Club members have  received already some  seed and plant  catalogues and are planning now llieir 1982  garden activities. Best  wishes from the Garden  Club lo all.  Continued from Page 3  ages and it was quite a  musical experience.  Late in 1912 the family  decided on moving to  Winnipeg, which was  done via C.P.R. In Montreal we lived on a rise in  the landscape requiring  some 20 or more steps  from St. Catherine Street  to reach the front door.  We were within a long  stone's throw of the  Nickle Theatre at the  corner of Bleury Street  and St. Catherine's  Street, where a youthful  Pat Harrington would  appear in front of the  movie screen and sing in  his Buster Brown suit,  such timely songs as I'll  *Take You Home  Kathleen and My Wild  Irish Rose. The movies  were one and two reelers.  One of my pals had a  father who was a deputy  fire chief at a fire hall  somewhere closer to  Green Avenue, and when  a big fire downtown called on the Green Avenue  detachment, the deputy  chief's horse-wagon  passed Bleury Street on  St. Catherine's the deputy chief would be standing in his seat to really  show the populace what  a deputy fire chief looked like as he lashed at the  horses with his long  whip. It was a sight no  movie has ever reproduced.  We had little trouble  finding a home on Flora  Avenue in North Winnipeg. This occurred in  late 1912 and once again  it was my duty to gel out  and earn some money.  So, to start with, I was  able, through family  friends, lo land a job at  Bulman Bros, print shop  on Bannatyne Avenue,  where I stayed long  enough to graduate to  feeding a large sheet  Meihle. Then came a  move to Knox Magee's  printshopon Broadway  just off Sherbrooke  Street. After a period  there I landed a job in  the composing room of  the Winnipeg Telegram,  a morning Conservative  paper owned by Hon.  Robert Rogers, federal  minister of natural  resources in the then  Tory government.  After a few months  there and with some en  SlVSIISOn 8 Swanson's Ready-Mix Ltd.

Given a few pats  on the back 1 turned my  mind to editorial work  and, when they required  an office boy in the news  department I just slipped  in naturally. There was a  reason for this, as the  owners of the paper  decided to kill the morning edition and stick to  an afternoon sheet in  competition with the  Free Press, also an afternoon paper.  At this point it might  be wise to break off so  that the next installment  can begin with my career  in the newspaper world.

When the  world seems to bi a  dangerous and crazy  place it's well to reflect  on, what my father called, the "eternal  Verities", by which he  meant the laws of  nature, the reliable  rhythms of the solar  system, the regular patterns of the seasons, etc.  We took the dogs  along the beach as the  Snow began. The tide  had turned but the wind  had pushed the sea  another couple of feet  higher than usual. The  wind was loathe to let the  waves relinquish their  hold and with foam-  flecked sallies and rushes  chased the unwary back  to the safety of the logs.  It's always fun to dodge  ihe waves, making a last  second dash across the  patch of smoothed  gravel between one  Wave's retreat and the  next pnrush.  winter wrens, towhees"  and spong sparrows  foraged for seeds among  the salm'onberry Brtlsh;  an eagle surveyed his domain from his customary  jjerch atop an old fir.  .There were Oregon  Robins too, seeking  refuge from the snow at  ���higher levels. They will  be regular visitors at the  bird feeder while the cold  sweather lasts. Snow  flakes raced before the  brisk easterly wind from  a soft grey sky over iron  rgrey water, melting on  ;the shiny wet rocks. A  raft of scoter, like a  black dog, swam in close  formation offshore away  from the breakers crashing on the beach.  | Such a contrast from  tthe preceding evening  when we came back  along the beach after the  sun had dropped behind  the mountains on Vancouver Island. Night was  already established in  Howe Sound and dusk  was gently cradling the  . Popham Islands in its  - arms as we came around  Gower Point, where the  clear, blue sky was still  [reflected on the waters of  the Strait, unruffled by  more than a slight swell.  ��� A   translucent   blue,  ��� bright in contrast to the  ;: grey mountains merging  'with   the   dark   clouds  massing behind them.  The air was so still the  plume of smoke from  Harmac pulp mill rose  like a signal until at  cloud level it flattened  out. Behind snow-  covered Texada the  storm clouds gathered,  their edges teased and  windswept.  In the southern sky a  new moon gathered light  and Venus twinkled wanly yet, while the reflected  light of the sun still  shone from the water.  The flotilla of scoter and  golden eye stretched like  black lace over the pale  blue water and close inshore where the wavelets  curled around the rocks,  a couple of young  mergansers fed, lifting  the seaweed fronds,  heads down searching  for goodies in the kelp.  Seagulls, grey silhouettes  against the sky, flew  leisurely westwards confident of reaching a safe  roost before nightfall,  and the eagle gave up his  vigil atop the fir. Flying  over us, each feather of  his black wingtips was etched against the light.  We stood awhile watching the daylight ebb  and the moon and stars  grow brigiiter until the  winter temperatures  reminded us of the  warmth of hearth and  home.  Yet, behind us spring  already pushes up  through the soft wet  earth, where two or three  inches of the tightly furled sheathes of the skunk  cabbage flowers are visible, waiting for the earth  to warm up a little more.  Last year they were in  flower by the middle of  January. It has been a  New Year's tradition to  look for the skunk cabbage flowers, a sort of  atavistic reassurance that  although the worst  weather of the winter is  usually yet to come, spring is already here  waiting and will not fail  us.  And what a glorious  New Year's morning,  brilliant sunshine sparkling and glittering on a  world turned overnight  into a faerie wonderland.  Every twig outlined in  white, soon to melt in the  warmth of the sun, hanging in tiny droplets on  the birch like sparkling  diamonds, while the fir  branches shaking  themselves free shook  down cascades of shiny  snowflakes.  From the beach the  eye followed the unaccustomed detail of bush  and branch"revealed by  the snow, to the delicately tracery of bare winter  branch8eSWhagainst the  deep blue of the sky.  Popham Islands, now  snow-covered, sailed on  a blue sea and the North  Shore Mountains rose  through wreaths of cloud  to unimagined heights in  the blue, sunlit sky.  Welcome 1982.

One said, "commencing January  5th, when the pressures are reduced".  Many people make resolutions in the  hope of bringing about change of one  kind or another in their lives. We are  creatures of habit, and habits are difficult to change unless the resolve to  change is the result of a very real  desire for change.  Kicking habits that arc enjoyable but  bad for us physically sometimes requires a scare to provide the proper  motivation to do so. Speaking of the  resolve to quit smoking reminds me of  my own experience. If it helps someone, I will be very glud.  I had smoked since my teens and had  made several half-hearted attempts to  quit. I would in fact have It beat (I  thought) and then reach for u proffered  cigarette, only to be "hooked" again.  During the sixties I suffered successive bouts of 'flu, colds, septic  throat, etc. I frequently spent an  average of two or three days in bed,  with high fever. I would wake up in the  **,  ^ 1.

It may be  that I had ruptured a blood vessel as a  of my coughing, but in any case  ' scire me. And I said to myself, ���  'ikhVa it"! No more smoking for me."  Remembering previous half-rtiafted  attempts to quit, I determined that this  time I would really do it and that  nothing would deter me from this  course of action.  Before long, the withdrawal symptoms were bringing a change of heart. I  decided to ease my suffering by smoking cigars which I would not inhulc In  the same manner as a cigarette. But  what a smelly substitute, and, amid  loud complaints I finally resolved that  this was not the answer. I realized this  when I would yearn for a cigar as  much as I had the cigarette.  Finally I quit for good, resolving  never again to smoke. My positive  resolve In this regard actually helped  me. I suffered less. But for those who  contemplate quitting, let me say It was  all of nine months to a year before I no  longer yearned for a smoke with u beer,  or after a meal with u cup of coffee.  If you mean it, do it! I rarely um sick  with colds. I have u good pair of lungs.  It was a decision I shall never regret.

Many of  ihese characters were  slightly older hoodlums.  Resplendent In zool  suits, they strutted  through the perimeters  of our limited world.  They had names like  Gypsy Flick, Swipes  Miranda and Johnny Ihe  Pipe. They were the kind  of guys who lived fast,  died young and made  good-looking corpses.  These questionable  heroes had role models  too. High on Iheir list  was thai master of  feistiness; ihe toughest  kid on anyone's block;  the dude with ihe  ultimate sneer called  James Cagney.  Cagney was riding  high and bad across ihe  screens of the time. After  years of playing basically  lovable (if always iwo-  fisled) yankeedoodle-  dandy   lype   characters  like George M. Cohan,  he had gone wrong again  wilh a vengeance in an  amazingly powerful  gangsler film called  While Heal. In the role  of Cody Jarrell, Cagney  almost broke through lo  ihe other side. Taking  Ihe basic hood he had  porlrayed so effectively  in the Thirties, he fleshed  him oul with an Oedipus  complex, psychosomatic  headaches leading to  violent fits and a realistic  aura of unalloyed malevolence that was infinitely compelling. While  Cagney went on to make  many other fine movies,  he never etched a  stronger portrayal than  this one.  il is a tribute lo  Cagney's acting ability  thai so many aciual  ne'erdo-wells admired  and even copied him for,  unlike John Wayne (who  tended to play the  redneck   gunslinger   in  ���>��*#���>������������ ��_��� #_* ������������������.������ a>  TWILIGHT THEATRE  * * * * �� ' For Tim.. ��nd Price.

The private  Cagney is jusl that���a  quiet, contemplative  man who has been married to the same woman  for over fifty years,  shuns the limelight and  confines his social activities to occasionally  entertaining a select  group of longtime  friends like the Pat  O'Briens on one of his  secluded farms. The archetypal city boy is a  serene country gentleman. Given his threadbare beginnings, it might  easily have been otherwise.  He was born James  Francis Cagney Jr. on  July 15, four years after  the turn of ihe century in  an area known as the  "Gas House District" on  ihe southern fringes of  New York's notorious  Hell's Kitchen. The place  was a small apartment  above ihe corner saloon  owned by his namesake  faiher. James Sr. was an  easygoing man, somewhat over-partial to  sampling his own stock  along with his  customers. His mother,  Carolyn, was a strong  minded woman of Irish-  Norwegian slock and the  dominant figure in  young Cagney's life.  This and other New  York working class  areas, were the backdrop  of his formative years.  They were racial melting  pols, crammed to  overflowing wilh European immigrant. Tensions abounded. Being  handy with your fists  was a simple requisite for  survival and young  James Cagney was  nothing if not a survivor.  He became a good  enough si reel fighter lo  seriously consider a boxing career. Fortunately  for movie-lovers, his  mother exeried sufficient  influence over him to nip  this ambition in the bud.  Jimmy Cagney was the  second of five children,  four boys and a girl. The  family was far from well-  off and all the brothers  took afterschool jobs as  soon as they were able.  The enterprising James  sometimes held three at  once. His firsi acting experience came when he  filled in for his brother  Harry in a Chinese pantomime at the Lenox Hill  Settlement House. More  inclined towards sports,  Jimmy had scoffed at acting up to this poinl.  Once he tried it however,  he was immediately bitten by the bug.  A natural performer,  he soon graduated to  leading roles in these  amateur productions.  This led to his first professional engagement in  a vaudeville show called  Every Sailor. Ironically  enough, the tough Irish  kid was called upon to  appear in drag as a  female impersonator. Il  was an inauspicious  beginning.  lo be continued  The stormy onset of passion: Charles Smithson  (Jeremy Irons) calls oul to Sarah (Meryl Slreep) on  the breakwater at Lyme Regis.  At the Twilight  The Twilight Theatre  in Gibsons presents two  films in the coming  week. The first is the  suspense thriller Looker  starring Albert Finney,  James Coburn, Susan  Dey and Leigh Taylor-  Young. Looker is a film  about murder set against  the world of TV commercials in which the  rather bizarre possibility  of replacing people with  computerized human  duplicates is presented.  Looker plays Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, January 6th - 8th.  Following Looker will  be the much acclaimed  The French Lieutenant's  Woman directed by  Karel Reisz. The  screenplay,   by  Harold  Pinter is of course based  on the masterpiece novel  by John Fowles and is  the story of a confused  and passionate relationship between a quite ordinary British gentleman  and a young woman  marred be a previous affair with a French sailor  which scandalized the  Victorian sensibilities of  the local people.  The novel itself is  complex   and  gripping  By all accounts the  film, starring Meryl  Streep and Jeremy Irons,  has succeeded in bringing this tragic story to  the movie screen.

"We anticipate competition for parts" said  Val Tomkies, who is producing the show. "We  The  Country Pumpkin  NOW OPEN  Enjoy browsing In an old-fashioned  Htorc warmed by our  wood-burning stove.

Then came the  twin 1-act shows last  August - rave reviews  again. Many of our  Members now want to  get on stage and make  their debut."  When Suncoast!  Players first formed in  February 1980, general  community response expected a theatrical thrust  more 'little' and amateur  than the Society has so  far delivered. Performances to date were, in  the opinion of most, as  professional as anything  the big city has to offer.  "Charley's Aunt"  presents ten characters  -six male and four  female. It is a challenging play for any company; the root of its  humour, a student masquerading as another's  wealthy aunt from Brazil  (where the nuts come  from) and being wooed  by fortune-seeking  fathers of the students,  not to mention the  denouement when the  real Aunt turns up unexpectedly - requires adroit  interpretation of  playwright Brandon  Thomas' dialogue and  split-second timing. No  doubt Suncoast Players  will pull it off again.  "Everyone on the  Society's membership  roster who offered 'acting' as their preference  will be invited to audition", continued Val  Tomkies; "selecting the  best will be quite a job."  Making selections will  be an audition committee of three: Joe Harrison, Bill Murdoch and  Richard Tomkies. Harrison is art/drama  teacher at Pender Secondary, a two-time contributor   to   Suncoast  Players in terms of set-  design; Bill Murdoch,  Director of Dramatic  Development at  Capilano College,  directed the Society's  August presentation of  two one-act plays;  Richard Tomkies, who  produced "Arsenic" for  the Society in January  last and played the Bear  in August, has undertaken to direct  "Charley's Aunt". He  will, with Murdoch's  creative supervision, be  the Society's first homegrown director, comprising success for the Society in terms of its constitutional commitment  to cultivate local  dramatic talent.  Public performances  will take place in Sechelt  during the Easter Break,  either at the elementary  school of Chatelech. Full  use of the Society's  revolving stage is intended, creating three totally  different sets for the  three acts of the play. A  full publicity campaign is  planned to appraise the  public of the when and  where well in advance.  Anyone interested in  auditioning for parts, or  undertaking any of the  myriad backstage support duties, is invited to  call Val Tomkies at  883-2492.  "My job, in terms of  the Society's aims", said  Val, "is to have as many  people as possible  discover the incredible  thrill that comes from  working hard to give  others a breathtaking  level  of entertainment.

Januaiy 4, 1982  Through  One I  Some tears of joy  by Bob Hunter  Gee, this is a happy  story. Maybe it has some  broad significance.  Maybe not. I'll pass it  along anyway.  It concerns my stepfather, a gentle, patient  man named Fred, and  his daughter, whom he  hasn't seen for 23 years.  They weren't  separated by the Berlin  Wall, or because he fled  an oppressive regime to  be reunited with his  family decades later, only after they themselves  had escaped.  No. Fred and his  daughter were separated  all those years by  something much closer  to home���which afflicts  so- many of us; the  fallout from a broken  marriage.  Back a few decades  ago, many of you will  remember, divorce was  considered an almost unthinkable thing. In the  unlikely event that a  marriage did end in  divorce, the repercussions were violent.  Almost invariably, the  male, the father, would  lose custody of his  children to the wife,  regardless of what kind  of a monster she might  be. The family���her  family at any rate, and  often the man's family as  well���would close ranks  around the mother and  kids, and the father  would find himself  almost totally ostracized  by his relatives as well as  his children.  When it came to child  custody, there were virtually no such things as  equal rights. (I understand perfectly that it is  largely   due   to   the  feminist movement that  the situation is far more  fair nowadays).  At any rate, my own  father was lost to my  brother and myself  because of a divorce.  And so, years later,  when my mother finally  married again, to Fred, I  was able to relate to my  stepfather largely  because, just as I had  lost a father through a  divorce, he had lost a  daughter.  We shared that special  pain.  Not only was Fred  denied the custody of his  daughter, but his ex-wife  moved far away, taking  the child, and made sure  that Fred didn't know  where they were.  Some emotions die  hard. The link between  child and parent is still  the most primitive, the  most fundamental link  that exists. Break it, and  you might as well tear someone's limbs in half.  It doesn't matter, by  the way, whether your  parents or children drive  you nuts, you still love  them in ways that you  can never truly shake.  Fred learned to cope  with the loss of his  daughter. What else are  you going to do? Maybe  he even learned  something through his  suffering.  Whatever the case, by  the time he began courting my mother, he had  developed into a man  who was always kind,  self-effacing, considerate. My brother and  I were enormously relieved that Mom had landed  a true gentleman.  Okay. Skip ahead to  the present. A couple of  weeks ago, a letter arriv  ed at my house from  Fred's long-lost  daughter. How she got  my address I don't know  yet. But the letter stated  that she was living in  Surrey and she  understood that her  father had married my  mother, and could 1 put  her in touch with Fred?  She very much wanted to  reconnect with the man  who was her father, yet  whom she could hardly  remember.  I phoned Mom. She  passed the information  on to Fred, who was  reduced to a state of  shock. He wanted to talk  to his daughter so badly  that he couldn't speak.  After all those years, the  sense of loss welled up in  him again, overwhelming him.  Finally, Mom made  the call. The daughter,  too, was speechless with  longing. It took a while  to get them together on  the phone. They both  broke down crying.  With relief. With joy.  The long period of horrible, inexplicable alienation was over. My Mom  says that Fred has been  ecstatic ever since.  Who says the family is  obsolete?  Sunday Worship Services  ST.

Douglas & Mclntyre 1980, 142 pages.  For all the fisherfolk who enjoy reading, I  recommend Bright Waters, Bright Fish. Haig-  Brown is the author of this modern version of  Walton's two hundred year old, The Compleat  Angler.     '"' '  In this beautiful edition, there is a blend of  the craft, philosophy and science of angling.  Along with a text crammed with information,  are colour plates that avid fisherpersons would  love to step into.  Says Andy Russell in his introduction: "Man  has no divine right to do what he likes with  nature, nor can he ignore it: At best, he can  bend it and shape it to his needs, and if he does  this with care and consideration, his rewards  will reach as far as time and compound  themselves in the process." While doom-and-  gloomers may disagree, Haig-Brown's book,  published posthumously, does present a  positive outlook.  Eleven chapters deal with the history,  resource management and future of angling.  Judging from information supplied by.Haig-  Brown, a master angler, it is not the sport  angler who is wiping out the food fish stocks.  His comment about going home with an empty  creel points oul his theory: "It is enough and  more than enough lo be able to return again  and again to the familiar place and find lite fish  still there."  It is interesting to observe in Ihe  photographs, the faces of successful fishermen  who hold up their catch with expressions thai  show a mixture of victory and awe. One can appreciate the contest between fish and man; lite  knowledge that each must gain about the oilier  afler a long battle knee-deep in a mountain  stream. No true angler lakes lightly his special  fish; il becomes legendary lo him.  Author Haig-Brown has tested rivers and  streams across Canada. He has written  numerous books about the sport, but litis, his  last, is surely the most beautiful.  western influenced music  played on the  shakuhachi, a Japanese  end blown flute that  dates back to the 14th  century and has been  associated with zen buddhism as a form of  meditation through playing. By the 18th century  it became popular as an  ensemble instrument  with the shamisen and  the koto (both stringed  instruments). In recent  years the skakuhachi has  begun to be played in  modern Japanese and  western music.  Mr. Yamashiro was  born in Japan and  studied shakuhachi for  ten years. In 1972 he  moved to Canada where  he continues to play and  teach, occasionally returning to Japan for tours.  Miss Terese Kobayashi  will accompany him on  koto (13 stringed instrument) for this concert.

Prakash, 4, and Pushpa Filial, 10, built  themselves a snow house at Reed Road over the  holidays and It was big enough for their two cats,  besides. -Vi�� i""*11 "��10  Towards embarkation  by Frances Fleming  Dear Frances Fleming:  Not long after I read  your column on  Montessori Schools  (earlier in 1981), I had  the pleasure of seeing the  Montessori educational  philosophy in action.  Visiting my daughter's  family in Wisconsin, 1  was able to spend an  hour at a Montessori  School, observing my  granddaughter Heather  and her classmates.  It was a wonderfully  rewarding experience,  one that verified for me  the truth of your own  convictions about  Montessori.  Afterward I asked my  daughter Tiffany to  record her own view of  Montessori, and what it  Rambling of a  Rover  by DeeCee  The longer I remained  in the Armed Services  the more convinced  I  became that the majority  of the upper echelons  consisted  not only of  first-class  nincompoops  but I began to suspect  that many of them, being  mentally deranged, were  possibly on the enemy's  payroll and secretly were  receiving large sums for  impeding the war effort.  By the time we were  judged ready to proceed  overseas, the amount of  kit we had been issued  with   had   assumed  frightening  proportions  and, had we been unfortunate  enough  to  encounter any of the enemy  while encumbered with  all this gear, we would  have  been   a   "sitting  duck" and he could have  dispatched us with ease.  It   would   have   been  equally  impossible  to  have run away or raise  an   arm   in   our   own  defence. About the only  things they had omitted  to  issue us with was  either a packmule or a  wheelbarrow to trundle  the  God-damned  stuff  around in.  The day previous to  our embarkation had  consisted of a final kit  inspection (this took  hours), followed by a  pay parade when we  were handed our pay to  date in Canadian money  and were then given an  advance of L5 in British  currency, that  presumably would see us  over, assuming of course  that we ever reached  England. After what was  supposed to be a stirring  speech by a pompous,  corpulent "Colonel  Blimp" with a handlebar moustache, we were  dismissed with the words  "good luck and take it  easy". "Take it easy"  -what an expression,  especially for me who  was literally rolling in  wealth still having most  of the purse that my  friends in Glengarry had  given me, plus all this  pay and advance stuff.  We had been informed  on the D.R.O.'s (daily  routine orders) that our  period of liberty was  from the lunch hour on,  but that there was a  curfew in effect and we  all had to be back in  camp by 12 o'clock midnight, when a roll call  would be taken and  severe penalties imposed  for any infractions of  these rules. As can be imagined, very few were  present to attend the  camp lunch, we all took  off immediately for the  city of Halifax which  was approximately two  miles away. I started off  with two companions - a  hare-brained L.A.C.  named Chapman and  another corporal cook  whom I had met at  Guelph. Long before  nightfall we had lost  track of one another. We  all had so much to do  and so little time left to  do it in.  Somehow I could not  visualize   an   ocean  voyage lasting a week or  possibly  more without  some liquid refreshment,  so the first place I stopped at was the liquor  store. Here, much to my  surprise and dismay, I  found that there was absolutely no whiskey in  stock. All they had to offer were several brands  of  gin   and   depleted  stocks of both imported  wines  and  local beer.  They had no explanation  to offer for the shor-  tgage, but privately I was  of the opinion that it had  all been.bought up to  supply   the   many  officers' clubs in the city.  Either that, or the Bronfman brothers had shipped it all across the Line  to slake the abnormal  thirsts of our American  neighbours and in so doing   had   made   even  greater profits. I ended  up by purchasing five  bottles of gin, what else  could I do? At least the  beer-parlours were open  so,   after  leaving  four  jugs   of  the   "juniper  juice" with a friendly  and,   I  hoped,  honest  shopkeeper,  I  shuttled  from tavern to tavern for  the  remainder  of  the  afternoon.  Somewhere along the  line I learned that there  was a fair in progress  just on the outskirts of  town. It was a kind of a  Midway with a ferris  wheel, games of chance  and a couple of tents  where a few tired and  haggard looking ex-burlesque queens were performing their bumps and  grinds. It was all very  dreary and unexciting  but by this time I was in  a kind of rosy glow and  anything looked good. I  seemed to be having  phenomenal and unusual  good luck at many of the  stalls and had already  won a large Kewpie Doll  when one of the hoops I  was tossing went over an  alarm clock, so it too  became mine. I had no  idea what I was going to  do with all this useless  junk but, turning  abruptly, I almost collid  ed with a young woman  and impulsively thrust  the doll and clock into  her arms, glad to be rid  of them. At first, she  refused to take them but,  when we got into conversation, she became more  friendly and agreed to  accept them.  All   I   ever   learned  about her was that she  was a nurse and that her  name  was   Rose.   She  would be in her late  twenties or even early  thirties and, although no  raving beauty, she was  attractive and vivacious  and after a couple of  belts of gin mixed in with  her Orange Crush, she  soon entered into the  spirit of things. It wasn't  long before we tired of  what the fair had to offer  and it was getting late.  At  her  suggestion  we  took a taxi, retrieved the  parked gin and adjourned to her apartment. I  cannot and will not give  a recital of the rest of the  night.  I am sure she  realized thail was more  than half besotted and  made allowances accordingly. We drank, danced to the music of her  gramophone and made  love   in   a   desultory  fashion. I had long abandoned any idea of making it back to camp for  the midnight roll call and  I am indebted to her  that, just as the day was  breaking,   she   gently  awakened me and told  me it was time to go. She  insisted on accompanying me in the taxi back to  the road leading to the  camp where, after a brief  embrace, we kissed and  said goodbye.  The rest was an anticlimax. I crawled under  the barbed wire behind  the cookhouse (someone  had had the foresight to  cut the lowest wire) and  after hurriedly discarding some of the gear in  my packsack to make  way for the gin, managed to get to the parade  ground for the early  morning roll call. We  marched in formation to  the outer city limits  where we were joined by  means to her as a young  mother; I though you  might wish to share it  with your readers.  Jack Wallace  by Tiffany Benjamin  There are few causes  in the world today that I  can espouse as readily as  I do the Montessori  method of education.  My four-year-old  daughter is in her second  year at a Montessori preschool in Madison,  Wisconsin, and I can  best sum up my feelings  about this program by  saying that on many a  morning I have wished it  was I who was entering  that classroomt  The Montessori approach to teaching is  progressive in the best  sense of the word. It is  not "permissive" in the  unpopular sense. Maria  Montessori discovered  that children, given the  proper environment,  prefer order to chaos,  quiet to noise, work to  play, and display a  natural, flowering of  positive traits, if given  the opportunity to  develop them. She realized that children already  contain within them the  seeds of responsibility,  self-reliance, love of  order, desire for greater  knowledge.  All that is needed is a  fertile bed of freedom, in  which those seeds can  grow, for true freedom  begets order, and not the  reverse. In a child is contained all that is needed  to become a successful  (self-realized) adult. It is  just a matter of encouraging, skillfully, the  natural growth of the  child.  In my own daughter, I  have seen impressive  changes. She is developing a sense of dignity and  independence, self-  reliance and sociability,  and a quiet but solid  realization of her own  worth. She has learned  to write her name and  several other letters, and  has a flair for counting.  She produces stacks of  imaginative drawings,  amazingly accurate in  their detail.  She asks to help with  the housework, and  cares for her younger  sister with tenderness  and confidence. It is obvious that she views  work as a pleasure, for it  has purpose, and a child  is striving ever toward  the fulfillment of particular goals.  The Montessori school  which my daughter attends not only encourages but is dependent to some degree on  parental involvement.  The teachers actively  communicate with  parents on all matters,  and an open, friendly  relationship is established. Parents provide  snacks, donate time and  materials, or rides for  field trips. There are two  scheduled private conferences a year, but the  teachers are available  anytime to discuss pro-,  blems or progress.  When I first observed  a Montessori pre-school  class in session, prior to  enrolling my daughter, I  watched from a small  child's chair in a corner  of the class. My daughter  was invited to participate  as a member of the class.  The first thing I noticed  was the beauty and order  of the physical environment.  Bright, open shelves  offered a myriad of lear-  a large contingent of the  army and, with a pipe  band leading us, proceeded through the  streets of downtown  Halifax to the cheers and  waves of hundreds of its  citizens bidding us  i farewell.  Soon we were on  board the Empress of  Japan and that night, in  a convoy of about 30  ships including several  destroyers, we set sail for  beleaguered Britain.

There  was a cosy reading corner, complete with child-  size rocker and colourful  rug; an unbreakable  standing mirror with a  jar of Windex and a rag  next to it; tables and  chairs for the children to  work at with their chosen  projects, or small bright  rugs, stacked neatly on a  low shelf, for those who  preferred working on the  floor. And on the walls,  handsome and  stimulating cut-outs,  photos and maps.  The children were all  happily engaged in  whatever work they had  chosen, and the calm  quiet in the room  bespoke their contentment. The teachers gave  instruction and help  when needed, but never  hovered or spoke condescendingly. They  showed genuine regard  for the children, and  gave affection freely.  Out of respect for the  innate wisdom of the  child, Montessori  created a small, ideal  environment in which intelligence could flower. I  asked my daughter  recently what she liked  best about Montessori  school, and without a  moment's hesitation she  said, "It's peaceful and  enjoyable."

We will  see businesses fold on the  Sunshine Coast or they  will experience serious  financial difficulty.  We will start off hoping things will go well,  but 1 believe the crunch  will hit this spring. The  loggers may not go back  to work. There will be  severe lay-offs by local  businesses. With the  large increases in assessment values in our area,  people will have trouble  paying their taxes and  local governments will  find it necessary to  reduce all but the most  essential services.  There is a slowdown in  our industry and we are  expecting a slump this  year. It seems that the  federal government's  restraint policies have  caught up with us and  whether the effects have  been deliberate or not, I  don't know.  We will have to do  some major re-thinking  in our lifestyles. Restructuring will have to be  looked at very seriously  and will have lo be  thought out in a way that  will provide the greatest  benefit to the largest  number of people on the  Sunshine Coast.  George Skea, Builder,  Gibsons:  I look forward to 1982  wilh guarded optimism.  1 predict a slow start with  construction picking up  during the year.  At Woodcreek Park,  where we are building  custom-designed homes,  we are having to pare  down to suit the tighter  financial situations of  our customers. We have  had to change our  designs from 2,000 sq.  ft. homes to about 1,000  sq. ft. We are having to  build homes that people  can afford with the buying power of today's  wages and the high interest rates.  For a Scotsman to be  out building a house in a  snowstorm on New  Year's Eve, would indicate that the construction business is healthy.  Blane Hagedorn,  Businessman, Super-  Valu Manager, Gibsons:  Pricing will not be any  better in 1982 than it was  in 1981. Industrial milk  products such as butter,  yogurt, cottage cheese  and ice cream are going  up immediately in the  new year and I am sure  that similar increases will  follow.  Food prices went up  about 15% in 1981 and I  think the same can be expected in 1982.  We are enlarging our  store by about 30% this  year because we are hoping to accommodate the  steady growth in population in this area. From a  business point of view,  we are not as hard hit  here on the Sunshine  Coasl as food stores are  in other communities.  Cliff Lindasy, Businessman, owner Driftwood  Inn and Pebbles  Restaurant:  There has been a great  slowdown in the services  industry generally. People are not spending as  much money anymore;  it's as simple as that.  Because businesses on  the coast are dependent  on the forest industry,  we have all been affected. It is difficult to  predict what the tourist  season will bring,  because the entire  economic climate is  depressed.  We have had to lay  people off and watch our  costs. Hopefully, in the  spring and summer  things will brighten up,  but it is going to be slow  for the next couple of  months.  Danny   Strom,   Fisherman, Gibsons:  There is no way that 1  can even predict what is  going to happen tomorrow   in   this   business.  Fishing companies are  not buying more fish and  they are not willing to  raise prices. We are still  getting 23C a pound for  groundfish, the same as  in 197S. Since that time  the price of fuel has gone  up from 80C a gallon to  $1.35 a gallon. The price  of ice is going up in  January from $25 a ton  to $34.  The mortgage  payments on our boats  fluctuate from day to  day, as the interest rates  change. They are not fixed as in home mortgages.  When you have to get a  boat full of fish just to  meet your boat  payments, it makes it  difficult to make ends  meet.  To keep ahead of  everything, we would  need to get 50C a pound  for our fish or do away  with the middle man and  sell direct to the public.  When we well our fish as  23t a pound, the consumer buys it at $4 a  pound.  1 have been fishing for  33 years. We need to go  farther and farther away  to find fish and, with the  rising costs of fuel, we  make less money on our  trips. What we need is  more hours in a day - 24  hours is not enough  anymore. All we can do  is keep working harder  and hope things don't  get much worse.  Ted Boodle, Minister,  Pentecostal Assemblies  of Canada:  In 1982, the crisis in  the family will continue.  Family breakdown is  prevalent and the sad  results of it are all  around us.  Although a return to  stable marriages and  stable homes is my  greatest wish, I can't see  any trends in our society  that would indicate the  situation is changing for  the better.  As long as people  measure themselves  through material success  and prestige, rather than  by relationships and caring and love, our  families will continue to  be in difficulty. If there  could be a change in  values in the home, the  source of many of our  "youth problems"  would change.  I don'l see any answer  for it except for people  lo accept the word of  Jesus and change (he  orientation of their lives.  Individuals can change  themselves and that is  where (he change in  direction in our society  can come.  Bob Cotter, Teacher,  and principal of West  Sechelt Elementary  School:  The coming of the  New Year is always interesting for those in the  teaching profession. It  isn't really the beginning  of a "New Year" as  such, but most of us  return from the break  with some measure of  new enthusiasm. Kids  and teachers seem to enjoy being back and relish  telling one another of the  holiday happenings.  As for what the new  year holds is another  question. Education is  slow to change, but this  year will see many  changes both inside and  outside of the  classrooms.  West Sechelt,  Chatelech, and Roberts  Creek will see the completion of additions.  The value of preparation time given to  teachers last year will be  subject to evaluation.  The Sunshine Coast  Teachers' Association  will be meeting with the  School Board to iron out  the details of a Personnel  Practices Contract.  The new technology  with its word processors,  computers, photocopiers  etc. is finding its way into the schools at long last  and this year will find  many of our students into the 'microchip revolution'. No one really  knows of the benefits or  costs of these changes.  However, for the majority of us, things won't  change much in this "second half" of our year.  The style and delivery of  education will remain  quite the same as it  began last September.  Tony Tyler, Businessman, owner Great Canadian Dough Factory and  Cedars. Inn:  There is a recession  going on and everybody  is feeling it. People can  always afford to play,  but there is going to be a  change in how hard they  can afford to play. People are getting rid of luxuries and going out and  spending a lot of money  is one of them.  It's going to be the old  jungle adage - survival of  the fittest. It's good to be  living here in a small,  people-oriented community where people are  willing to lend each other  a helping hand.  I predict that the snow  will last until February  15th and we will have a  white St. Valentine's  Day.  1982 will be a good  year to start a family  because that will probably be the cheapest  entertainment around.  Doug Solomon, Fish  Processor, Island Cash  Buyers and owner of  Gibsons and Sechelt Fish  Markets:  A lol of processing  companies lost money  this year. The high interest rates hurt us all  very badly, although it  was a good year in terms  of catches.  The main problem is  that the overseas markets  are very depressed. The  recession in Europe is  serious and the  Norwegian fish farms  are taking over a large  part of that market.  The high cost of  labour in Canada makes  ours the most expensive  processing labour in the  world. In the United  States, processing labour  costs only half of ours  and in Japan even less.  There is a great mistrust  on the part of fishermen  towards the processors,  yel it is unjustified. We  buy ling cod at 55C a  pound, head off, and  wholesale it for 75C a  pound. Our labour costs  $11.50 an hour and $15  an hour for filleters.  This business is so unpredictable, it depends  on the interest rales and  the catches. Better  fisheries controls are also  needed for all types of  fish, not just salmon, to  ensure steady catches for  the future.

December  19th saw a  : whole bunch of strange  people hiking or riding  around the local coun-  ��� tryside with binoculars  and   spotting   scopes  'looking   for   birds.   A  ��� strange occupation on a  wet,  blustery day you  ��� might say, but the  members of the Marsh  Society didn't think so.  ' This is the third year that  the Christmas bird count  has taken place on the  Sunshine Coast and it is  all part of a grant scheme  covering the whole of the  North American continent.  I  went  along as  a  ��� recorder, not being all  j that expert at bird  < recognition and found  ! out at once that I had  '. been trapped into  ; something I really knew  ; very little about. The list  ! of birds given to one to  ! check the sightings  ; against gave the family  1 name first and then listed  the birds in that particular family. I am quite  i sure there is a logical explanation as to why the  birds should be listed as  ' they are but I have not  yet discovered it. I am  ' equally sure that by this  ' time next year I will have  ',' the answer and will be  , able to do an intelligent  ,i job   of  it  instead  of  .  bumbling along with my  1 own little note book and  pencil.  One of the first things  that   our   little   party  observed   were   the  beautiful soft eyes of a  seal watching the strange  antics of these land lub-  <' bers with those big artificial eyes they kept  . peering through. We left  him scratching his head  wondering what was going on and then no doubt  ' going home and telling  ��' his family of the weird  - things he had seen.  ;7    In West Sechelt we  noticed   a  number  of  golden crowned kinglets  on the highway. At first  we could not understand  what the attraction was  for these little birds to  risk their lives on a busy  highway and came to the  conclusion that perhaps  it was the salt they were  after. The Department  of Highways had been  using calcium chloride to  help combat the frost  hazard and apparently  these little birds found  the stuff to their liking.  Although they are quite  fast in their movements I  am not too sure that  when they were concentrating on the job in  hand they would be fast  enough to get out of the  way of five tons of steel  barrelling down on them  at 60 km/hour or faster.  Apart from the apparent hazards of  speeding vehicles I  wonder what effect this  stuff has on their mouths  and internal organs when  ingested. Calcium  chloride is much stronger  than sodium chloride or  common salt and I  understand that deer and  other wildlife which also  eat the stuff off the road  have a tough time as it  burns their mouths and  lips and there have been  cases recorded where  they have starved to  death because they were  not able to eat.  Perhaps the little birds  have some way of combating this problem but I  rather doubt it. Apparently snow buntings  have been observed doing the same thing and  understandably there  must be quite a high  mortality among these  birds. I guess there's  nothing we can do about  it but it just brings to  one's attention the  hazards we inflict on our  feathered friends.  Ever heard of a Town-  send Solitaire?

The sharp eyes of  Vince Bracewell drew  our attention to one of  these birds which are not  even supposed to be here  at this time of the year.  He normally winters to  the South of the Canadian border down as far  as California and Mexico  but this guy  got  left  XnoftifT^ ��p!resting  sighting j,was ,a cattle  egret. These birds are not  seen around here at this  time of the year or any  other time for that matter and this one must  have got separated from  his siblings. He's called a  cattle egret because of  his affinity for cattle  which he follows around  picking up the bugs and  insects disturbed by their  feeding and seeing as  there are not too many  herds of cattle in Davis  Bay, I think our bird  friend is going to have to  modify his feeding  habits. The cattle egret is  like a small heron, white  in colour and having  yellow legs.  These were just two of  the 80 plus different  species of birds that were  seen on the bird count  but I'm sure you will be  reading more about this  when the bird experts get  busy reporting. I think  everybody enjoyed  themselves and as far as I  am concerned it was enjoyable and educational  at the same time and I'm  already looking forward  to the next bird count.  Minor hockey league  Atom Division representatives, T and T Trucking, swept a major  hockey tournament in  Coquitlam two weeks  ago. The Chuck Brown,  Gary   (Classen   coached  team of 8 to 10 year olds  were clearly the class of  the competition as it  breezed through the  eight team tourney,  whipping Port coquitlam  in the last game 8 - 2.  Headphone alert  Recently the Canada  Safety Council asked  parents who give stereo  headphone sets that can  be used with portable-  receivers to young people  for Christmas (or other  occasions) also ensure  the users are aware of  hazards involved with  careless use.  These items, while nol  necessarily restricted by  law, are dangerous when  used by the driver of a  motor vehicle, because  they can reduce  awareness of warning  signals, or blol them out  ���altogether. The same applies to the high quality  new automobile slereo  systems played at high  volume.  There has now been  one recenl case of  young pedestrian slruck  by a train of which he  was apparently unaware.  This instance gives a  clear indication of the  ability of this equipment  to drown out other  sounds.  A driver was reported  lo have been fined in Or-  vielo, Italy, for driving  while using a headset;  there have been similar  cases in Switzerland.  Stereo headsets do nol  come under any federal^  statute; they are nol in  themselves hazardous  products, and standards  selling organizations  cannot control usage  after purchase. Yel the  danger comes in the way  the headphones are used.  The Canada Safely  Council suggests owners  of slereo headphones ensure long-term enjoyment of Ihe equipment  by: 1. never using them  while driving a car or  motorcycle; 2. never us  ing lliem while riding a  bike; 3. never using them  when walking down any  street; 4. never using  them when operating any  powered vehicle such as  snowmobile or boat.  Parents of young people are urged lo satisfy  themselves thai these  restrictions will be  observed.

Canada Geese are  gregarious birds and  form flocks of up to 200  or 300. They prefer inland areas, frequenting  grasslands, lakes and  marshlands. Some  though, like the small  flock at Davis Bay, will  stay by the seashore.  Their diet is mostly  , vegetable. They graze on  grasslands and on the  | rushes and sedges in marches. Those that live by  I the seashore eat sea-  1 lettuce, eel grass and  : various algae. They are  < considered a pest by some  farmers especially during  their spring migration  when a flock of a few  hundred geese can wipe  out a Field of sprouting  grain in no time. They set  the growth of the grain  back and sometimes pull  the seeds right out of the  ground. When the flocks  feed they are guarded by  sentries that watch out.  for approaching danger  and warn the flock with  loud honks. These sentries are relieved at intervals so they can eat.  Canada Geese mate for  life and usually arrive at  the breeding grounds in  pairs. There is still a  courtship process to go  through and there may  be some fighting when  an unattached male trys  to steal someone else's  wife. Nesting begins in  March or April and the  nests are usually built on  the ground close to  water. The five to six  eggs are incubated by the  female alone while the  male stands guard. Some  males have been known  to fight to the death while  protecting the nest from  predators. The incubation period is 28 days and  the parents lead the  chicks to the water as  soon as they are all hatched. The chicks grow  rapidly and can dive and  feed at a very early age.  By six weeks they are fully grown and weigh about  ten pounds and show the  adult plumage.  When the birds fly in  V-shaped formation the  birds are riding on the rising vortex of air created  by the down stroking  wings of the bird immediately ahead.

Tomatoes - Sow seeds  towards the end of  January in the soil mix  previously mentioned,  well moistened but not  soggy, in, flats or peat  pots. Follow planting instructions on the seed  package. While waiting,  to your indoor beds add  and mix well about one  quarter by volume of  soil, well rotted compost  or manure, and some  wood ashes if you have  them. When the plants  are well grown, in about  three weeks, plant them,  well spaced in the beds,  leaving a good hall of  earth round roots to  minimize the trauma.  Water the soil well on  planting, but not the  leaves!  2. Cucumbers - Sow  seeds singly in peat pots.  Use the soil mix  previously detailed. Soak  well initially but avoid  soggy soil. Now prepare  your indoor beds as  follows:- Make mounds  of compost (strawy  manure is the best) mixed with soil about 6 inches deep and a foot  wide, two feet apart.  Allow the plants to grow  about six inches, then  transplant carefully, peat  pot and all into the  mounds. Provide vertical  wires or poles to the roof  with horizontal wires at  18 inch intervals.  Now  for a  pleasant  and simple way to add to  the vitamin content of  our winter diet without  leaving the house:-  Sprouts - The following  ing seeds can be used:  peas, wheat, rye, alfalfa,  turnip, radish and mung  and other beans. '.( you  have used others successfully, let's hear from  you. Wash the seeds  thoroughly and soak in  fresh   water   at   room  On the  Seafood Platter  by Chak-Chak  Our Christmas and  New Year's activities are  over for another year,  that is for most of us!  However, there are quite  a number of our new  Canadians who still  follow the Gregorian  customs of their  homeland and celebrate  Christmas this week. We  wish them all a 'Happy  Christmas'.  I have not been able to  find the traditional  seafood recipes for this  time of year. 1 do have  this Greek style of cooking   cod   or   haddock  fillets which is a tasty  seafood casserole that is  easy on the food budget.  "Greek Style Fish"  1 lb. fresh or frozen cod  or haddock fillets.  2 medium onions (sliced)  Vt cup chopped parsley  1/8 tsp. oregano  dash of pepper to taste  1 Vi tsp. lemon juice  2 tbsp. olive oil  1 clove garlic (crushed)  2 large tomatoes (or canned)  1 Vi tsp. salt  2 tbsp. dry white wine  (or water)  6 slices lemon  Method  Thaw fish (if frozen)  and cut into serving size  pieces. Heat oven to  350 ��F. Butter a baking  dish (about 10x6x1!/;  inches). Heat oil in  skillet and add onions,  garlic and parsley and  cook gently, stirring for  about 3 minutes. Peel  tomatoes and cut one in  half and cut ope half into  6 thin slices,- set aside.  Chop remainder coarsely  and add to skillet. Stir in  oregano, salt and pepper  adding wine. Cook gently about 2 minutes. Put  about half the mixture in  the bottom of the baking  dish (spread evenly). Lay  fish on top and sprinkle  with lemon juice. Top  with remaining onion-  tomato mixture and garnish with alternate slices  of lemon and tomato.  Bake 30 minutes or until  fish flakes easily with a  fork.  Here   is   a   popular  snack or party time hors  d'oeuvres for any season  of the year.
