Array name to raise tuttus  Gamble for historic lodge  by Bradley J. Benson  An innovative raffle scheme may be Ihe means whereby Ihe Sechell Chamber or Commerce saves the historic Rockwood  Lodge. See adjoining story. . Brum j bmikm pmm  When Morgan Thompson, current president of the Sechelt  Chamber of Commerce, first heard the idea, his immediate reaction was "no way". A $100 a ticket lottery to raise funds to pay  off the loan on the Rockwood Lodge seemed a bit far-fetched.  No**, with approximately 400-500 tickets sold and over a month  to go before the draw, the idea is working. Says Morgan Thompson, "it is progressing really quite well. I am optimistic."  :The attempt to save Rockwood Lodge from private development artd-ret it up for public use was initiated last year by the  JJKhelt Chamber of Commerce under the leadership of its then  Mtident, Bud Koch. The purchase price of $87,500 was met  twh $12,500 in private contributions and a public spirited  10,000 loan from the Royal Bank. But even at 'Alt over prime,  Hit interest on the loan, which has ranged from $700 to over  $900 per month has been a burden for the Chamber.  'This was temporarily alleviated by renting the lodge lo the  Kfyamavik youth group. With the increase in real eslate values  over the last year, the Chamber recently considered selling a portion of the 2.43 acres for enough to retire the loan. This would  hive saved the historic structure and accomplished a part of the  Chamber's original goals, but would not have provided for any  future civic development of the rest of (he property.  -These plans included the possibility of building the much talked about live theatre facility for the Sunshine Coast. It was the  serious consideration of this subdivision plan ihat led Bud Koch  t��'Propose the lottery as a means of preserving the entire proper-  M  Sunshine Coast residents are being offered, at $100 a ticket, a  chance lo preserve the Rockwood Lodge property for public use  with the added incentive of winning either (at relail values): a  $23,000 Buick Riviera; a $10,000 16' Sangsier boat, together  with a 75 hp Johnson outboard motor and trailer; or a $3,000  iwo week trip for two to Hawaii. These prizes were provided ai  their wholesale cost (totalling approximately $30,000) by Sunshine GM, Trail Bay Sports, and Getaway Holidays, respectively. Tickets may be purchased at Morgan's Mens Wear, Sunshine  GM, Ihe Chamber Office, from any Chamber member, or at  Trail Bay Centre where the prizes are now on display. Tickets  will shortly be available in the Gibsons and Pender Harbour  areas.  Though not the oldest standing structure in the Sechelt area,  Rockwood Lodge, built in 1935-36 by Bill Youngston, has an  important historic significance. When Helen Dawe, local  historian, was asked for her comments on Ihe Chamber's efforts  to preserve the property, she replied, "I'm glad that somebody is  going to save something. I'm all for it."  At the September 22 meeting of the Sechelt Chamber of Commerce it was unanimously voted to "either dedicate or sell the  property known as Rockwood Lodge lo the Village of Sechell  for $1.00." The purpose of this is to place Rock wood's title in  the hands of the public and it will be done with the added  guarantee of a restructive covenant that the building and property will be used only for the benefit of the people of Sechelt and  the Sunshine Coast in perpetuity. It will never be sold again.  The Rockwood gamble may yet pay off.

The dog is friendly and very  timid and if sighted, Please Do Not Shoot, but contact  Jamie Stephen at 883-5027 right away.  The dog was released with its tracking partner Duke early Saturday morning, October 3, in the vicinity of North  and Cemetery Roads after a goat was killed in the area by  wild animals.  f  Oopsl  A careless headline in last week's paper may have misled  our readers.

At the moment, only one Advisory Planning Commission  has been made official, Area D, which includes Roberts Creek.  The draft of the settlement plan was handed out lo the 30  residents present, although most had come with concerns about  the collector road that is to dissect the residential area from  Browning Road in Wilson Creek through to Selma Park.  Lee's alternate director Jon McRae and SCRD planner Jim  Johnstone had obtained a detailed map for the residents of the  affected area for this meeting from the department of highways'  Burnaby division.  The citizens had complained of difficulty in acquiring information about the road from local highways' officials.  Five Area C residents along with members of the SCRD staff  and regional board directors will go to Victoria to meet with officials from the Ministry of Transportation and Highways lo  layout their concerns aboul a road they feel is "an unnecessary  duplication of Highway 101". The road would run east-west and  parallel to a northerly road, the proposed by-pass highway at the  hydro line; also parallel to the southerly road, the existing  Highway 101.  Harry Almond, a director on the regional board for 10 years,  gave the Coasl News some background information on the road  network plan for the Sunshine Coast that was first introduced to  the board in 1973.  "We approved unanimously at that time the proposed by-pass  and only in principle did we agree to the grid system. Our staff  and the ministry's were to meet and come up with the exact location of the roads, (i.e. lot numbers, property lines).  "There has yet to be any communication between the board  and highways about specifics. We only find out after subdivision  approvals are given by staff from the highways department  where the roads are going by the road allowances made," said  Almond.  "Every time we have met, we look at the same general map,  we tell them the same thing. We repeat our objections to the idea  of continuing Beach Avenue to Davis Bay and the parallel route  from Wilson Creek to Selma Park," said Almond.  The following Is a quote from a report of the first meeting  held to discuss the road network, from the June 6, 1973 issue of  the Coast News.

Local CPU president Dave Gant reacted to Ihe announcement  as "very good news". It ensures continued employment for the  mill's 559 employees as well as Improved pulp production and  irnodeoiiation ofrnMUieiH. ���>**���,  V��TJ���� tdtal pfogram'wnen completed will cost $180 million of  which $120 million has been approved to date.  Peter J.G. Bentley, Canfor president and chief executive officer; indicated: "The program has three main objectives. First,  to modernize the mill���which is one of the oldest on Ihe Pacific  Coast���to ensure long term productivity, competitiveness and  on-going employment. Second, to meet the requirement of  regulatory agencies for improved environmental protection.  And finally, lo increase mill capacity from 505 tonnes per day to  545 tonnes by 1984 and 585 tonnes by 1985.  "The decision to proceed at this time with the most intensive  capital spending program at one operation in the 43 year history  of our company was a very tough one. We are experiencing weak  . markets, largely influenced by record high interest rates, and we  do not see any improvement for at least a year. Moreover, the  cost of financing the program will be extremely expensive.  However, we are confident that better times lie ahead and we  want to ensure that our mills are cost effective and environmentally sound."  At the heart of the program is a new pulp drying machine  which will replace two existing machines. This machine together  with a new warehouse complex will cost $71 million and will be  completed in the spring of 1984. The pulp drying machine will be  a modern fourdrinier design with an airfloat convection dryer.  In order to average 585 tonnes per day, the machine will have an  immediate capacity of 750 tonnes, with the capability of being  further expanded. Future production increases above 585 tonnes  per day depend upon several factors, including fibre supply,  markets, approval of government agencies and additional  capital approvals. Canfor expects to make a decision on this  phase in 1986 or 1987.  A number of projects are already under way: an $8 million  outfall/diffuser; a $3 million 500 tonne brown stock high density storage tank; $7.5 million for a Teller scrubber, new control  room and electrical renewal on two existing recovery boilers;  and $1 million in screen room improvements.  A number of other large projects have been approved and are  at the detail engineering stages, including: a $2.5 million central  locker and shower facility for employees; new chip handling and  storage facilities at $14 million; a new $2 million rail barge  unloading ramp with a longer and stronger ramp to accommodate a larger tide range; a $1.8 million mud washer; and expansion of the construction camp at $3 million.  Hughes told employees, "Approval of the new pulp drying  machine caps almost two years of study in which we have  evaluated many options, including different levels of production, different products and, yes, even closure. The plan is con-  Lefeaux may  design Parks Plan  A recommendation will be made at (he next regular regional  board meeting that the author of the Sunshine Coast Parks  Study, Stuart Lefeaux, be asked to complete the final step and  design the Official Parks Plan for the Sunshine Coast.  The regional board's park committee met with provincial  parks branch representative, Mel Turner, on Tuesday,  September 29. Turner felt that the board had received a good  foundation for a parks plan in the Lefeaux study, as well as a  'bargain' from a man with great experience in the field.  "We are not trying to complicate things when asking for the  Official Parks Plan (OPP)," said Turner. "What we need to  know are the goals and objectives for parks on the Sunshine  Coast, whose needs the district is trying to serve, (i.e., local or  Please turn lo Page 22  sistent with Canfor's marketing and fibre utilization strategies,  make's the best use of our human and material resources, and  provides opportunities and a more secure future for all who  work at Port Mellon.  "The new pulp machine and chip handling facilities will result  in some displacement and retraining of junior employees but  there will be no lay-offs and all reductions in crews will be accomplished through the normal attrition. Many employees will  be given.the opportunity to learn new skills and training will be  an integral part of all major projects."

Second Class Mail Registration No 4702  Constitutional conundrum  I he decision of Canada's Supreme  Court in ihe mailer of repatriation has  lell as many questions to be answered as it  Iuin answered.  The Federal Governmeni, naturally,  has clutched unio itself the Court's apparently grudging acknowledgement of  legality whilst Ihe provinces have branched iheir undying belief in (he role ihat  must be played by 'convention'.  The judges of the Supreme Court and  Ihe premiers of Ihe provinces are right  lhal   ihe   parliamentary  system   under  which we live is much dependent on convention. It is hard to argue with the Prime  Minister, however, when he points out  that it is hard to follow a convention when  no one is quite sure what it is. The judges  fudged on the question of what constitutes a provincial consensus, though  they suggest that unanimity is not essential.  Without an indicated or agreecj definition of consensus it is likely that federal  governmeni will act unilaterally and most  Canadians will just be glad to get the matter over with.  Stanley Knowles  Ii is certain ihat politicians and the  public, regardless of Iheir political stripe,  will join in wishing a speedy recovery to  good health of the highly respected  Stanley Knowles,  Since he lirsl arrived in Ottawa in the  early I94()'s the veteran NDP member of  parliament has been universally respected  as a man of high integrity and proven  parliamentary skills. He is of a personal  stature which is found all too rarely in  men in public life.  Stanley Knowles' service to his constituents, to the people of Canada, and to  the cause of human rights generally has  been of unstinting excellence. May good  health return to him.  Congratulations, Canfor  Newspaper people thrive on bad news.  Nothing makes an editor smile more lhan  a slory about crime, corruption or  disaster. So it was last week that the Coasl  News featured a spread on the pollution  fine levied against the Canfor mill at Port  Mellon.  In Ihe interests of fairness to our com-  * inanity's largest employer, we would like  this week to commend Canfor management for its decision to invest $120 million  in upgrading its Port Mellon facility.  It is a courageous move, considering  high   interest   rates,   generally   weak  markets and current economic conditions.  The announcement comes as good news  to everyone on the Coast, not just the  employees, who must have breathed a collective sigh of relief that their jobs will be  secure, but to Coast businessmen as well,  who are dependant on the buying power  of the payroll collected by the 550  employees every two weeks. Bankers and  merchants alike will clearly benefit from  the Canfor investment.  Congratulations Canfor and best  wishes to management and workers now  and in the future.  ...from the files of the COAST NEWS  .a  v^  FIVE YEARS AGO  A joint meeting of the School  Board and the Regional Board was  held on Wednesday at the Elementary School in Sechelt to discuss the  feasibility of joint funding of recreational facilities throughout the  district. Also represented at the  meeting was the Sechelt Village  Council. Gibsons Village Council  was not represented. The rebuilding  of the Pender Harbour School lent  some urgency to the deliberations of  the evening.  TEN YEARS AGO  The following message was sent tc  Barry Mather MP in the House ol  Commons by John Pederson of the  Sunshine Coast.  "The Sechelt wharf, owned by  Sechelt Marina and Resort Ltd., has  burned. The wharf has long been an  eyesore and a dangerous playground  for children. A short while ago a little  girl fell through the decking and  drowned. Will you please ask in the  House what can be done to remove  the ruins which still are a danger to  children and boat traffic."  Mr. Pederson is waiting to hear  Irom Barry and to hear what happens  in the House of Commons.  . tEN YEARS AGO  To Dear Doris:  This man I am working with, he is  getting awful serious with me.

If  he's a fellow worker, ask the boss to  shift you to another room.  TWENTY YEARS AGO  Losing a purse containing more  than $230 is one thing, but getting It  back with its contents untouched Is  one for the book. RCMP report a Gibsons woman lost her purse on a  Black Ball Ferry one day this week. It  was found by one of the Black Ball  employees and turned over to the  mate and later to terminal officials.  Eventually, it found its way back to  the owner.  TWENTY-FIVE YEARS AGO  According to the new telephone  director, effective October 1st, there  have been increases In all dlstructs  in the number of 'phones installed.  There are 1,124 names listed in this  district. Gibsons shows 588 'phones,  Sechelt 382 and Pender Harbour climbing upwards of 134. These figures  are exclusive of those listed as toll  stations and there hwe been several  new Installations since the directory  was Issued.  THIRTY YEARS AGO  Youthful Jack Cresswell, hero of a  summer near-drowning, received  recognition of his actions when  awarded a Humane Society life saving scroll and silver cup, during impressive ceremonies at Legion Hall,  Sunday. In awarding the cup, Air Vice  Marshall Leigh Stevenson, had J.  Boucher, eye witness to the daring  rescue, give his account of the action  "which was nothing short of a  miracle."  THIRTY-FIVE YEARS AGO  A number of thefts from mall boxes  at Roberts Creek were cleared up  when a ten-year old boy confessed he  had opened envelopes looking for  money. Luckily for the addressees,  he dropped them where they could be  found. His only loot was two $1 bills,  but he claims he lost these before he  had a chance to spend them. His  case will be In court shortly and  disposition of the case may send him  to industrial school.  Quatsino, about 1900, B.W.

No, folks, it is a  new incarnation of our well-  known Miniwac, it's Super-  wacky! Or do you prefer  Mighty Miniwac?  For, lo, it is written in the  histories of the time how in the  fair land west of the high  mountains there was for many  years a great chief known as  Wacky, he of the blinding  teeth. And though Chief  Wacky was a very great chief  he grew old, as chiefs will  grow old, and in his old age  the slick of government slipped from his fingers and was  grasped eagerly by the would-  be chief of the round tummy  known as Dave and ihe  followers of Wacky lamenied.  But soon ihere came from  ihe country wherein people see  strange things in water and  make much wine, the son of  Wacky, oik Miniwac who  seized again from Dave of the  round lummy Ihe magic slick  of governmeni and became Ihe  chief. And the Wacky people  rejoiced!  Now, in Ihe sixih year of  Chief Miniwac there is  evidence that he is becoming  Chief Superwacky.  Fale, wilh ils customary majestic ambivalence, has chosen  to make our very own earnest  fellow from the Okanagan the  president of this year's council  of premiers and in that grand  office Billy Boy has been flying around the country, ostensibly to save it, grabbing  headlines wherever he could as  he ostentatiously conferred.  The Supreme Court judges  certainly could not have picked a better lime lo make their  pronouncements as far as the  Son of Wacky is concerned.  Consider. Miniwac and his  stumbling Socreds sought to  divert our attention from the  pettiness and corruption  revealed for us in Ihe series of  Dirty Tricks as they kicked off  their current spell of government. Billy and the boys  weren't just going to take our  minds off things with projects.  They were going to blast our  minds entirely away with  mega-projects.  It was like the arrival in  town of the Great Socred  Three-Ring Circus. First of all  we had the 'privatisation' of  some profitable crown corporations. Bill Bennett decided that not enough of us  played the stock market, so he  set about making us all  stockholders in BCR1C.  This daring and imaginative  new creature cautiously  bought some shares in the  forest industry just before the  bottom fell out of it. Then it  purchased at great expense the  holdings of Kaiser Coal just  before, in the nexl ring, the  governmeni ringmaster revealed thai it was going to build a  very expensive railway to sell  some very expensive coal at a  subsidized cost for the sake of  the future, thereby undercutting poor old BCR1C in the  coal business. The new president of BCRIC is now telling  disappointed shareholders that  their expectations have been  raised too high and that the  benefits of BCRIC will be  bestowed upon them in a  future which many will not  live long enough to see.  As if the lamentable tale of  the British Columbia  Resources Investment Corporation and the countervailing gigantic gamble of the northeast coal development were  not enough, Bill and his boys  in Victoria have enthusiastically thrown themselves into the  promotion of a False Creek  football stadium, Pier B.C.,  Transpo '86, and a light rapid  transit system for congested  Vancouver. With all of these  giant promotions underway  the provincial treasury is  showing dangerous signs of  drying up and visions of a  gigantic deficit are now beginning to dance in the minds of  the self-proclaimed masters of  the balanced budget.  Enter the Supreme Court  justices and off flies our  Superwacky from provincial  capital to provincial capital to  save the country. If we take  Superwacky seriously as the  father of re-confederation  perhaps we won't notice as the  mega-projects he plunged into  to take our minds off the Dirty  Tricks get stuck in the financial mire.  Ah! But the flying premier  has yet another trick he can  perform simultaneously,  believe il or not. As he flies off  around the country leaving the  growing Financial mess behind  he can also tell us that Prime  Minister Trudeau is only indulging in this constitutional  minuet to take our minds off  the mess that his federal  government has made of the  Canadian economy.  If our Billy can keep this  whole accelerating carnival  from flying apart before the  next election, or before the  electorate of British Columbia  comes to its senses and realizes  just how badly it is being  governed, he will have proven  himself an even greater master  of popular illusion than his  celebrated father.  If Superwacky can pull it  off and win re-election by this  frantic flight ahead of constantly impending disaster I  might join my Superwacky  friends in giving thanks for  Superwacky, the greatest  turkey of them all, and spend  the rest of my life making bubble noises with finger and lips.  [Slings & Arrows]  [George MatthewsB^-  I think it's about time  somebody made a pitch for the  therapeutic value of abuse in  the work place. The modern  boss seems to have lost his  touch for honest and straight  forward anger and derision,  and their absence from the  work place is sorely missed.  It's a rare thing these days  to hear even a couple of those  tried and true phrases on the  job like: knuckle-head, incompetent idiot, cretan,  dunce, screw-up, bone-head,  to mention jusl a few of the  less abusive terms that every  good boss had in his lexicon.  These days, all a good  mistake on the job will get you  is, "It could have happened to  anybody," or "Don't let it  bother you; we all make  mistakes," or "I used to do  that all the time when I first  started in the business.".  The effect of these solicitous  and condescending remarks on  the person who is on the  receiving end is devastating. In  the old days, the screw-up  would finish work, go down to  the beer parlour with the boys  and chuckle about how he got  a real chewing out by the boss  today. He'd say something  like, "Old Charlie sure was in  a bad mood today. He called  me every kind of idiot you can  name, just because I forgot to  grease the flange and we burned out a bearing. Boy was he  mad, you should have been  there.".  These days, the miscreant is  so humiliated by the boss' circuitous ministrations that he  has to go to the factory nurse  to get a note to leave work early. He sneaks out the back way  and walks around for a few  hours pondering the nature of  his soul before he phones his  psychiatrist for an emergency  appointment.  In the old days, abuse was  rich and ritualized. Every  company kept a few young  lads around just for the purpose of taking abuse. He was  officially called an apprentice,  but everybody called him the  gopher, or more often just  "the kid".  "Hey kid, go get me a corn  beef on rye and a coffee."  The kid returns.  "You   jackass,   this   is  pumperknickle. Don't you  know the difference? And hey,  bone-head, who told you to  put cream and sugar in Ihe  coffee. When I want cream  and sugar I'll tell you. Now go  find me a left-handed wrench  and don't come back till you  Find one."  These days on the job, there  are no apprentices or gophers  or kids, only assistants, and  when the boss wants the assistant to get something he has to  word it very carefully.  "Excuse me John, I think if  we work through lunch we can  finish this job. Would you  mind very much going down  to the cafeteria and getting us  a sandwich and coffee? If you  don't feel like it, that's Fine."  The assistant returns with a  stale donut and a pot of tea.  No cup. "Thank you so much  for your trouble, John.  Donuts aren't what they used  lo be are they? Do you mind if  I just drink this tea out of the  spout? Don't worry about it; 1  forget the tea bag all the  time."  The problem is that the  modern boss is forced to read  all the latest literature on  human relations, personnel  practices and communications  theory. The result is of course  that, ironically, the more communications theory the boss  knows, the less able he is to  communicate.  A dressing down by the  modern boss is more like a  gestalt encounter. "I feel  there's something bothering  you son. Is there anything 1  can do? I know it's hard to  keep your mind on your work  but we have to remember that  when we leave our tools in the  machine, something could  break. I know that you're  upset that your calipers and  micrometer were broken, but  it did cost us $250,000 to fix  the machine you left them in.  No offence."  Let's bring back the old  fashioned boss. Let's revel tn |  the thought that somebody |  had the guts to tell us off.  Let's ban books on human  relations and communications  theory.  And if anyone disagrees,  they can pick up their pay and  get the hell off the lot.  of the strange scandalous woman  who held court in ragtag shanties  with dogs, cheap wine and memories.  It wasn't drink alone  that wizened those elegant features  it was also years of hard loneliness  deception and harrowing exile.  She was my mother's cousin  banished for stealing a ring  back when they swept such embarrassments  beneath the colonial rug.  She was never wanting for money  till a gigolo bilked her for most of it  she bought him fine clothes and a yacht  he paid her only with treachery.  Other exploiters laughed  and vied for the rest of her nest egg  cruelly amused by the spectacle  of a tipsy toppled lady.  She became it relentless eccentric  the locals called her "The Duchess"  she packed her supplies on a mule  like some high-born Marjorle Main.  Onceshe roared like a storm  through the measured world of my childhood  with ihree belligerent terriers  and bottles of scotch in her suitcase.  How I admired and feared her  shrill worldly remittance woman  well on her way to perfecting  Ihe character even then.  But under the bluster was hurt  a touching obsession with lineage  she brooded on family trees  and the kinfolk who had rejected her.  Long years later we talked  shortly before she died  she told me about our ancestors  and I felt the true weight of her pain.

(A  political type approach would be  detrimental.)  You will receive all the help we  can give. All applicants phone  either Ron Sim, Brian Haslett or  Ray Mountain.  I am very grateful though to  you two as you are acting up at  ihe right time, (just before  elections). At Ihe meeting in  Davis Bay (settlement plan) it  sounded more like a political  rally al limes than whal ii was  billed as.  Our highways depart menl  and our regional board are going to have to smarten up, as  il's getting sick, sick, sick  when people have lo use their  own hard earned money to  hire lawyers to do the work  ihat should be done by these  same iwo groups.  1 fully expect you to fly off  in 80 different directions al  once; please do, Chas, I have  nothing but contempt left for  you and your undemocratical-  iy appointed sidekick Jonboy.  If Ihe mud must fly, Chas,  lei it fly.  S.R. Rocky Mountain  Whether we  like it or not  Belanger misinformed on roads  Dear Sir,  Please allow me to correct a  statement in Mr. Belangcr's  leller lo you. 1 am al a loss io  understand how he got the  idea, but 1 am completely  unaware of anyone objecting  io the paving of Park Avenue  or of any demonstrations such  as he mentions. It is completely untrue.  As you know, I was involved as a mediator in a public  dispule aboul the opening of a  beach access where a road  already existed. The matter  was settled by the democratic  process, though Mr. Belanger  and a few friends refused lo  participate. If he had voted  with the resl ihe result might  have been more lo his liking.  As to Henderson Road. It is  obvious Ihat Mr. Belanger is  unaware lhal I have been  pressing the Highways Department for upgrading on this so  called road for the past four  years, through the regional  board and ihe community  association, and with their  support. The Highways  Department has answered  repeatedly that it is short of  funds and has higher  priorities. However, in the last  couple of years ihe increased  number of residences and Ihe  rapid deterioration of ihe surface has prompted the regional  board, al my request, lo take  ihe problem io the minister of  highways in Victoria.  Perhaps if Mr. Belanger  look more inieresl in community affairs, his ignorance  would nol be so profound.  Yours sincerely,  H.J. Almond  Editor:  Ku Klux Klan  Whether we like il or not,  the Ku Klux Klan has entered  British Columbia and we can  no longer pretend ignorance of  the fact thai the KKK might  one day touch our lives.  Information officer,  Graham Hope, from the  Human Rights Branch has  kindly accepted to give a lecture on the subject of the Ku  Klux Klan movement, and he  will deal with (he history of  racism, the philosophy and the  impace the KKK can have on a  community. Graham Hope  will also talk about how the  KKK's activities are seen from  the law's point of view.  This session is free of charge  and sponsored by the Ministry  of Labour.

Continuing  Media  Some suggestions on welfare recipients  Editor:  Would it not be possible for  employable welfare recipients  lo regularly work four hours a  week only, plus being on call  for exlra lime (no pay) for occasional, seasonal or emergen-  cy,|work��� as tittfded?,     . i, ,  (Surely the mosl prima don-  nat Welfare mom might even  enjoy a hall-day on the job?  The four hours of some of  them would be running day-  :are centres for their own (and  other) kids. Give them a little  more money, nol less).  Younger and brighter  employable Welfare recipients  could do some nightschool  and apprentice to something.  Employers would pay the  government, nol the workers,  al or even below minimum  wage.  The occasional extra work  would be Tor such things as  fruit picking or wherever temporary workers are needed,  shared out among ihe  employable Welfare recipients. Unions would have to  be on their toes to avoid  abuses, but surely unskilled  labourers could be placed  somewhere where they would  be helpful and, in some cases,  upgraded into good jobs and  skills.  There seems nothing in our  society between being a  Welfare bum, nol working,  period, and pulling down huge  wages on a very exhausting  schedule. Couldn't isome of us  work a little and occasionally  work hardi when something  really needs doing? Getting  sufficient lo live in reasonable  comfort, bul nol presuming to  live in kingly fashion.  Many would prefer It. There  should be some way of working it out. Asler Durand  Gibsons.  amazing  Dear Sir,  Isn't it amazing how the  media loves the Polish trade  unions and yet hates the guts  of the unions at home. Hardly  a day goes by that gallons of  ink is not spilled praising the  efforts of the unions in  Poland. Yet when 400,000  trade unionists march in  Washington to protest  Reagan's policy of reward the  rich and soak the poor, in protest of astronomical interest  rates where people cannot afford to buy homes, where  gasoline and other commodity  prices soar, it is scarcely worthy of mention in the daily  press.  When are we going to wake  up to the fact that we are one  of the most brainwashed nations on the face of the earth?  W.H. White  Windsurfer not the first  tidilor:  In regard to your front page  note "Windsurfer Charged"  (for not having a lifejackel  aboard his 'vessel') - no, it's  not a Canadian first. Several  surf-sailors have been charged  in Vancouver litis year with  the same offence. Many of  these people are choosing lo  argue iheir tickets in court.  I know one fellow who,  when he appeared in court to  plead his case on his own  behalf, was advised to seek  legal counsel, and to postpone  his plea until after a provincial  supreme court decision is  reached regarding Ihe issue in  one of ihe more eastern provinces! (I believe it is  Manitoba).  Though a wei suil keeps one  afloat, il seems Ihis is viewed  as Insufficient by local  authorities, However, many  surf-sailors wear harnesses  that hook onlo their sail  booms lo give I hem some  relief and freedom of arm  movement; and these  harnesses are available with  very lightweight flotation  material. Mustang (the Floater  Coat people) make a nice one.  Do keep us posted on the  outcome of this incident in  Plumper Cove.

The best way to insure  your home while under construction is with a Builders'  Risk Broad Form Policy. It  is an "All Risk" form  which, as well as the standard coverages, includes  theft of materials, vandalism and building collapse.  The policy should  become effective as soon as  construction starts and  should be issued at the full  construction cost of the  completed home. The fact  that you start with very little and gradually work up  to full value has already  been adjusted for in the  rate.  The policy term for this  type of coverage is quite  flexible and can be adjusted  to suit your needs.  Nexl week: Claim Tips  St NSHINK (OAST INSURANCE AGENCIES LTD.  Box .175.

And I  begin to notice a character 1  have never noticed before. He  is a bloated ruin of a man, like  Henry the Eighth in his gout-  racked decline. Yel in his  youth, we must have looked  rather alike. And he seems to  stare at me every so often as  though I were another "him"  in the making, fated lo take  his place. I tell Ray about it.  He scoffs good-naturedly at  my fancies. Bul I convince  myself it is some son of omen.  The real clincher is yet to  come.  Old Jessie has been looking  a bit peaked of late and lacking her usual vitality. She  shrugs it off as a mild case of  the flue. But one day, Ray and  I straggle back to the Prince  Henry and And an ambulance  outside. As we approach, it  pulls away. Mohawk Jimmy is  standing there, along with  Paul (his arm still in a sling),  Whispering Chester and  several! other inmates. They  are all wearing long faces.  ; "What's happened?" I ask,  already half-guessing.  /'It's Jessie" says Mohawk.  ''I was having a cup of coffee  wjth her in the office when she  jpst keeled over. Guess she  had a weak ticker and never  told anyone. I tried to give her  artificial respiration, but she  was gone before the medics  got here."  Big Jim is truly moved. His  hands clench and unclench in  obscure frustration. His  fighting skills are of no avail  here. Death is one opponent  that can't be felled with a  judo-chop.  Pages  from a Life-Log  Peter Trower  Maybe I'l  again.  even start writing  Jesus" says Ray. "Poor  old Jess. She was a pretty decent lady." He speaks for all  of us. Our surrogate mother is  gone. The hotel will never be  the same.  Thai nighl, we hold a sort ol  wake for Jessie Fenbraith bul  it is a half-hearted affair.  Jessie has advised me more  than once to get off the street.  Now 1 determine lo take her  advice.  The following day, 1 am on  my way down to the logging-  agencies, all my foolish rationales forgotten, when I run  right into my brother, Martin.  I haven't seen him for a good  many months. "I was just  coming up to see you" he says.  "There's a rigging-slinger's  job open at the camp where  I'm working. I thought I'd see  if you wanted to take it."  "You must have been  reading my mind" I tell him.  We head back io the Prince  Henry and I pack up my remnant gear. Ray comes in.  "Jumping ship, eh?" he says.  "Ah, I've had enough of  this nonsense, man" I say.  "Why don't you get out of the  cily loo?"  "I'm no logger" says Ray.  "Strictly a hack-pusher. But  good luck with it anyhow.  Come back and see us  sometime."  "Sure will" 1 promise. I say  goodbye lo the rest of ihem  and check out of the Prince  Henry for the last lime. God  knows what lies ahead bul it  can't be any worse than Ihis.  There is a minor postscript  to this chronicle. Many years  later, John Burnside and  myself find ourselves in the  vicinity of the Prince Henry. I  decide to show him Ihis scruffy bastion of my downfall  years. I am filled with curiosity and something verging on  apprehension as we climb lhal  half-forgotten staircase to the  second floor. What will we  find here after all this time?  Whal we find is precisely  nothing. The place is in the  process of being turned into a  warehouse and has been totally gutted. Everything is gone:  all (he rooms; Jessie's desk;  (he communal kitchen.  Nothing remains of my  sometime home bul a great,  gaping void. Even Ihe ghosts  have been evicted.

Sixteen of her large,  thought-provoking paintings  are currently on display at the  Sunshine Coasl Arts Centre in  Sechelt.  Angcrmeyer's images include everyday items with  worn clothing from average to  lacky, bul, under her versatile  brush the people are there.  The paintings are big, some  over five feel, quite blatantly  colourful, exuberant and confident. Nancy studied at the  University of Wisconsin (B.Sc.  in An Education) and has exhibited widely in the United  Stales and on the Sunshine  Coast.  In her compositions Nancy  is a virtuoso in her use of space  and negative areas. (Areas so  often neglected by novice  painters who waste hours fretting about something they call  'background' instead of working on their whole structure as  a single entity). Angermeyer's  negative areas are forceful in  colour, sharp and cold. Under  her watchful direction they  become a wedge, a drive  leading the eye or a fracture in  the composition leading to a  chilly rest area. These two  dimensional space areas  literally push the eye around,  forcing it lo discover more and  there is a lot more to discover.  With "Knees and Company" she capriciously  reverses her field and using  white as a colour makes the  main image, Ihe knees, into a  negative area and with detail  makes the Company her main  image. She is frequently whimsical with colour as well, making a retreating area so sharp  in cold colour that it comes  forward instead of remaining  or going where it belongs.  These blythe caprices, along  with chequered tiles, are from  the field of Op Art, of course,  but when piled on to the size  and imaginative variations the  overall effect is awesome.  Much of the simplicity is  anything but simple.  "Two Chairs" is a deceptively simple painting, until  the viewer takes in Ihe industrial engineering that has  gone in the angled girders and  tangled shadows that make up  the chairs' underpinnings. In  "Balhroom Sink" Nancy  plays deliberate ping-pong  with perspective as she does in  "Snack Bar" and the result is  a lot of lively fun. Many of her  imager, are 'whiled out' or left  to your imagination and many  images are almost in (someone  has orthopedic shoes, barely  there). We have all observed  the crazy patterns in a toaster  at one time and "Burnt  Toast" at another.  As with all the best in art,  Facing naked truths  by Bob Hunter  As 1 walked into the room, I  couldn't help noticing the  naked female person lying  there, gyrating her hips and  rubbing her breasts with oil.  It was a downtown Vancouver beer parlour on a Tuesday aflernoon. I'd agreed to  meet a friend ihere. The  reason we'd chosen this particular hold was lhai (a) it was  near my friend's place, (b) it  used to be my favorite  downtown pub and (c)we  knew the place offered nonstop entertainment in ihe form  of beauliful women taking  Iheir clothes off.  ..Now. Let me make  somelhi'X clear. 1 thoroughly  enjoy \Jc spectacle of a  beauliful.woman taking her  clothesjoff,  1 am.'qjtite sexist aboul ihis.  I'm sofry. I can't help it. It's  God's fault, nol mine.  My jfrlend and I drank for  aboul an hour. The conversation was disjointed. Every  once in a while, my friend  forgot himself in mid-sentence  and got distracted, ogling the  latest naked lady.  There were a lot of comments like, "wow", "geez",  or "Holy mackerel". Pretty  boyish stuff. After a while, I  began lo wish thai they'd stop]  stripping long enough for us lo'  have a conversation.  And then 11 bought: Oh, oh,  Hunter, you're over the hill.  I mean, I never dreamed as  a pubescent youth that the day  would come when I'd actually  get tired of watching ladies  take their clothes off, especially lewd, young, attractive  ones.  It was only later, when the  panic faded, that 1 tried lo  analyze the situation rationally. It wasn't necessarily the  onset of senility. There could  be another reason. And after I  thought about it long enough,  the truth came to me.  *������  I'm getting jaded.  Yes, jaded.  I guess that's the price of  living in a civilized state where  just about anything goes. Or  maybe your nervous system  can only stand so much  stimulation before it slips into  neutral.  Of course, from a purely  sociopolitical point of view, I  I  '   '" '                                     -��       ,,,.;,,  M            I  m  ftiWj  i/lT'-'^^*   !m  w^nUr  ]   7nmm  Iifi    awt. ^~%am        ."��� SeK  A  r  \  i  r ^r    immrm&.  ���  taWMMi              a^>J,^",^1^,*wH|  stwmma   V        ���������    ^A   Lr4fc  Coast News, October 5,1981  I  I  I  I  I   I   I  I   I   I  I  I  !

In a bank or business office ali the people obliged to  wait would gain great enjoyment from these paintings and  the prices are inciedibly  reasonable.  All those interested in pain-  should beashameri.to be part  of the system which is exploiting these women.  And 1 often do feel guilty.  Or at least, I find myself  feeling sorry for the poor girl.  What a demeaning way to  make a buck. Anyway you  look at it, stripping can't be  classified as an intellectual  achievement.  I mean, I've got a daughter  and a wife and a mother, and I  would be enraged, totally horrified, and probably made  suicidal if I ever saw any one  of them on stage like that.  So aren't I some kind of  hypocrite? A typical male  chauvinist hypocrite.  1 guess so.  And I suppose thai it's also  true that when you become a  parly to someone else's  debasement, you are debased  yourself.  It's extremely difficult to  maintain your sense of the  dignity of womanhood when a  grown female is tickling  herself with a feather right in  front of you.  It's equally difficult, under  these circumstances, to  remember that sexism and  racism, are essentially the same  thing, since ihey de-humanize  an individual, making him or  her inlo an object.  By the time I left the hotel,  saying goodbye lo my friend, I  fell a bit crazy. Dazed. Jaded.  A trifle debased. There was no  doubt about il, I had lowered  myself.  Bul wow. Geez. Holy  mackerel!  Book Look .  HB-DiaaiHAri       f'nfiLkiViiL        Itmr        UnHltll        UhbiLa* ^nlflr,  The One-Burner Cookbook by Harriet Barker, Coles  paper, $3.50.  These days the saving of money and energy is foremost  in the minds of homemakers. While The One-Burner  Cookbook is a boon lo campers and boaters, it is also  useful for the hot plate cook. If dinner can be nourishing  and will fit in one pot on one burner, it is the first choice.  One of the success formulae this book suggests is the  selection of a variety of spices and herbs to give life to  otherwise mundane meals. Condiments are easily carried  and stored. Many herbs can be gathered in the wild lo  make unusual teas, syrups and salads.  Cattails, for example, produce flour, "popping corn",  salad greens and cooking vegetables. Dandelion root can  be cooked as a carrot, and the leaves and blossoms boiled  or fried. Berries may be eaten raw or mixed with other  foods to add colour and tang.  Author, Harriet Barker, is a realist. Wisely, she makes  her recipes palatable io the average tongue. Those of us  who have tried some pf the natural foods, are frequently  turned away by their bitter taste or unfamiliar texture.,  Barker finds way to turn dull staples into exotic meals. In  her collection she includes Chinese, Spanish and curried  recipes, many of which are autographed by their  originators.  The short culs in ihe book are practical. Hints such as  boiling eggs in the camp coffee water, poaching them in  foil cups which also serve as plates, and baking fish in  riverbank clay are among the many ideas presented.  Using Span, wieners and canned fish or chicken, one can  create feasts on one burner. Powdered milk, instant rice  and biscuit mix can be turned into delicious meal complements, which disguise their humble beginnings.  Advice about ihe purchase and care of one burner stoves  is given. Safely tips and troubleshooting hints are also included in this handy take-along book. Whether you are  camping or jusl trying to do your bit to save energy, The  One-Burner Cookbook is a fine source of ideas.

This date has now been changed to October 24th which will  give you a little more lime to  make your plans to gel tickets.  The price is six dollars each,  and this covers an excellent  dinner, some fun sing-alongs  and dancing.  Those who attended last  year will certainly want to lake  this one in. It is open lo  members and friends and you  can obtain tickets from three  locations in ihe Redrooffs area  - Eunice Keeler at Welcome  Woods, Connie Hobbs and  yours truly on Redrooffs. The  hall can only accommodate a  certain number of people and  this will be on a "first come"  basis. Would like to suggest  that you gel your tickets right  away and avoid disappointment.  The weekend of Thanksgiving has proven to be an unpopular time to have planned  another function, which is the  Variety Show originally  scheduled for that particular  weekend. This has now been  changed to October 18th at the  Senior Citizen Hall in Sechell  at 8 p.m. The audience was so  enthusiastic about the show at  Welcome Beach Hall thai  many of them are planning to  go to the Sechelt one, too. 1  would like to give this  marvellous show a "rave  review", but in this wee column there isn't enough space.  But the word seems to be getting around that this is an  evening of outstanding entertainment by a cast which  ranges in age from a three-  year-old right up to a couple  of senior citizens.  There is an infectious feeling of joy and happiness  among the cast under' the  leadership of a very tsflemed  lady by the name of Nicki  Weber, which reaches out to  the audience. So, if you would  like to spend a very happy  evening you can get tickets al  the Halfmoon Bay Slore as  well as a couple of stores in the  Trail Bay Mall - the Upstairs  Downstairs Shoppe and at  Books 'n Stuff.  This is a benefit show in aid  of the Intermediate Care  Society and it would be nice lo  see another full house for this  one.  There is yet another change  of date of which you should  lake note, and that is the evenings of the film shows which  are sponsored by the Welcome  Beach Community Association. In previous years these  films have been shown on  Thursday evenings, but Ihis  has now been changed to  Wednesdays, so that the shuf-  fleboard players can fit their  schedules in. The first showing  of the season will be on  Wednesday, October 21st al  7:30 and will be a film called  "Glimpses of China" along  wilh three shorter features.  The only charge is a donation  fee of 50* - so far inflation  hasn't caught up with thi'  event.  Another date which you  may want to mark on your  calendar is the Saturday of  November 7lh, as Ihis is the  night thai the Halfmoon Bay  Recreation Commission is  planning a dance at the  Welcome Beach Hall. More on  this one later.  Strange goings on:  Following the mention in  this column of a strange object  having been sighted in the sky  a couple of weeks ago, yet  another resident reported having seen il loo. Very interesting indeed. Also reported  by a local resident this week  was the fact that on Wednesday evening of September 30th  at exactly 7:27 a slight earth  tremor was felt, Wonder how  many other people felt lhal  one.

Canfor mill superintendent,  Fred Saunders, who made the  presentation, told well  wishers: "It is a pretty good  record, when a man can work  at a place for 42 years and  never make an enemy."  Reg Weston, who was born  in Derby, England, on  September 30, 1916, came to  work at Port Mellon as a  youth in his early 20's.

Imagine ihe impact of a  very bright and competent  newcomer into the set hierarchy, who, on his first report,  .vas ranked first! Everybody  -.t rank, and even the poor  fifteenth, through no fault of  his own, was demoted to sixteenth. The whole community  reeled under the disgrace. The  point of all this is, the ranking  system had nothing to do wilh  what ihe individual was learning or how he was performing.  Il depended entirely on the  competition.  \i ih.it time. 50% was considered a pass.

THE PUBLIC ARE AGAIN REMINDED THAT THE BOARD OFFICE'S  NEW TELEPHONE NUMBER IS  886-8811  lions and marked leniently,  everybody's average would  shoot up, and delighted  parenls would express [he opinion lhal this was, indeed, a  very line teacher who had  "brought up" the class  average by as much as 30  points. Once again, ihere was  no connection between the  marks and the actual learning  which took place.  letter grades were designed  IO be less personal and  generally to group children to  Indicate to parents thai their  offspring were average, above  average, below average, or  very good or very bad. Unfortunately, ihe phrase, a  "straight A student" became  the hallmark of quality, and  parents look greal pride in so  discribing Iheir bright child.  Any teacher, who, in his  wisdom decided thai a  "straight A student" could  lake home only a B or (horror  of horrors) a C for less lhan  excellent work, will relate the  trauma of thai simple act,  Tears, tantrums, pleadings,  threats... emotions calculated  io change the teacher's mind  and keep up lhal "straight A"  record, simply because the  parenls would not understand  or accept anything less lhan  perfection.  Further, if the leller grades  do indicate standing in the  group, whal happens if Ihe  group changes? Our child's  leller grades can fluctuate up  or down accordingly, with no  change al all in his work as an  individual.  In one school where I taughl  many years ago, several hundred grade eight students were  divided into home-rooms according to letter grades. The A  class were straight A's, the E  class were straight E's. Al each  reporting, cross grade examinations were given, letter  grades assigned, and students  shuffled into the home room  which matched their letter  grades. If an A student earned  only a B average, lie was  demoted to the B home-room.  There was stress, resentment,  rebellion, all put down by enthusiastic use of corporal  punishment. That was the  ultimate in letter grading.  Letter grades are particularly hard on lit tie boys. Quite  often they are "late  bloomers", and if ihey can be  encouraged and helped with  love and understanding, they  will come along with the best  of ihem. If they are ranked  against the girls, they often appear inferior. Who gets Ihe  D's and E's? And the exorta-  tions to "iry harder"?  No wonder the little boys sil  and begin to dream of the happy day when they can walk out  of school and not return.  Dropouts are created in Grade  Four. Thai is the year pupils  look aboul them and decide  hat they just cannot cope or  compete successfully. When  pupils decide lhal they are  worthless and that ihey are inferior, even the Learning  Assistance teachers cannot  change their attitude of  resignation and despair.  School must be an encouraging place, with realistic objectives set for every child.  Neither his largel nor his performance should be compared  with lhal of his neighbour. We  adults would nol put up with  such nonsense for one ininule  il some authority, say, the  Regional Board, tried il on us!  And who resisi Meril Rating  more vociferously lhan  teachers themselves? Lei us  hope thai ihey decline to ir/al  Ihe helpless children by Meril  Rating ihem by letter grades,  since ihey, themselves, would  not tolerate such treatment by  a principal or superintendent.

Wilh her mixture of a  sincere homey look that inspires trust, combined with a  self-assured and friendly manner, it is easy to believe that  Joan, with two young school-  age children of her own,  knows all about knee stains.  This talented batik artist  looks and is, first and  foremost, a homemaker, and  is nothing short of surprised  over the reaction her batiks are  creating all over the Sunshine  Coast.  IN fact, working in her kitchen and laundry room, Joan  literally does turn out her exquisite batiks between the  laundry chores and supper,  hardly ihe romantic image of  the starving creative artist giving up all of life's amenities  for her art.  "It takes me a long time to  create one batik, months,  sometimes even years, because  I don't really work at it. I still  treat batik art as a hobby and  find it enjoyable and, for me,  it is simply gratifying ihat  other people find it enjoyable.  I don't work to fill a  demand."

But now that inteVest and  demand for her work is growing and both her children, Andrea and Daniel, are in school,  she is starting to consider taking her hobby more seriously.  Joan, who lives in Sechelt  with her husband, Harvey, a  social worker with the Department of Human Resources,  comes from Victoria. Except  for a short while spent on the  east coast in Halifax, Moncton  and Fredericton, she is a confirmed British Columbian and  has seen her share of the province.  Since completing her training as a nurse and her marriage to Harvey, the family has  lived in Vanderhoof, near  Prince George, Revelstoke and  Bella Coola, before moving to  the Sunshine Coast almost two  years ago.  Besides, her artistic appreciation of the variety and  "wonderful geography" of  this province, Joan found that  the isolation of many B.C.  communities encouraged art  and craft work as a pastime.  "In Bella Coola, there is  one store and no newspaper.  The sun is hidden by the steep  mountains and does not shine  in the valley from October to  February. It is a strange environment when you are not  used to it."  Joan dabbled in art in high  school and, beyond attending  and oil painting workshop,  had never seriously refined her  artistic skills.  "I appreciate art and have  always done crafts, the way  most ladies do when their  children are small. I mainly  got inlo batik as something  different to do and one of my  first attractions to it was that it  could be used for so many  things. You can decorate your  home with batik cushions or  drapes, make decorations such  as eggs for Christmas trees,  cards, clothing, the  possibilities are endless."  While in Vanderhoof, she  participated in Arts  Unlimited, an artists' cooperative and helped form a  batik co-operative to share  with others materials,  workspace and ideas.  It is Joan's ideas that have  caused the most sensation in  the local art community. Her  landscapes, in a realistic  detailed style thai almost defy  the techniques of batik, are  colourful, well composed and  imaginative, unlike the traditional semi-abstract mono or  duo tones that are often seen.  "1 hadn't seen much balik,  and maybe that was a good  thing. I had my own idea how  it should look. Although  careful planning of design and  colour is an important part of  each piece, quite often, a batik  develops as it goes along."  Her eye is that of a sensitive  landscape artist, responsive lo  subtle hues, colour and  perspective. But Joan has a  whimsical sense of fun, also,  as she demonstrates with her  friendly yellow serpent entwined around the back and sleeves  of her son Daniel's green  T-shirt. Her work is particularly noteworthy for the  unusual bright colours she  uses and her detailed artistic  skills.  Over the years she has  developed her knowledge of  the intricate techniques of  batik art, through her own experimenting and, Ihis year, for  the first time, she gave a batik  workshop during the busy and  successful Arts Festival in  Sechelt.  Joan works mainly with cotton, but is thinking of trying  her hand at silk and expanding  her ideas to create garments,  particularly blouses. She has  found that polyester-cotton  T-shirts accept dye well for  children's designs.  She uses procion cold-water  dye, which is fibre reactive and  necessary not to melt the wax  which she uses to protect certain areas of her design. She  finds that her canner is useful  for boiling the material and  has discovered that a mixture  of beeswax mixed with paraf- .  fin gives her a softer wax that*  is easier to control.  She has invested in tjanting  tools, which are used in the  traditional batik work called  'tjap' in eastern cultures.  "They are good for fine  lines and for printing words. I  have found that metal cookie  cutters, for repeated designs,  or a piece of burlap tied lo a  stick can also give interesting  effects. You can use almost  anything and have to be willing to experiment."  Joan is very hesitant to commit herseof to producing  batik-art for sale, in spite of  Ihe fact that her exposure  through the Sunshine Coast  Arts Centre has created quite a  demand for her skillful work.  "This is the first time I have  ever sold anything and I don't  have a studio. It takes a long  time to set up and find a spot  for all the dyes, but most of  all, I don't want to lose my enjoyment of il."  885-2214  TO NANAIMO  Flight No.       Time  201- 07:30  203- 11:45  205- 15:15  FROM NANAIMO  FLIGHT NO.

The reality  is thai Iran is a half Westernized country with a wide range  of political idealogies, and the  mullahs gained their power  because of an alliance with  two of these. They were the  liberals and the Mujahideen.  The liberals were originally  allowed to share power, men  like Yazdi, Gotzbadeh,  Bazargan and Bani-Sadr, bul  have now all been removed  and are either in exile or  disgrace. These Weslern-  inflifenced liberal-democrats  were seen by the fundamentalists as the representatives of  moral corruption. "Those  who want freedom want the  freedom to have bars,  brothels, casinos, opium. But  we want our youth to carve  out a new period in history.  We do not want intellectuals".  If the liberals are abhorrent  to the fundamentalists it is the  far left lhal is truly anathema.  In the words of Ayatollah  Mohammed Beheshti "the real  smuggle in Iran is between  Islam and Communism".  That struggle is happening on  ihe street, in the fields and the  mosques of Iran today. The  bloody killings and assassinations are just part of a civil  war ihat is bringing the Iranian economy to Ihe bink of  collapse. The Mujahideen  have a vision of society based  on a combination of Marxist  and Islamic ideas which are  more akin to those of the  PLO.-  The internal struggle of  course is compounded by ihe  year old war wilh Iraq, which  is a tremendous drain of the  Iranian economy as well.  However, the war has kepi the  army out of the political  arena. This, of course, could  drastically change with an end  lo ihe war. If Ihe army could  return from ihe battlefield  wilh its honour intact, il  would be Ihe natural arbiter of  power between ihe iwo warring factions.  The army's oath of loyalty  lo Khomeini need not apply to  his successors.  The future of Iran therefore  is one filled with grave uncertainty. The mullahs, the Mujahideen, ihe army, all seen as  possible sources for leadership. Whether peace and prosperity will return io Iran is a  question of there emerging a  powerful enough organization  to weld this diverse and divided country together. Bul a  united Iran is a strong Iran  and this may nol be in ihe best  interests in a powerful Northern neighbour.

If we  advertise an Item and a competitor  advertises the Identical Item at a  lower price we will not be undersold.  We will meet or beat the price.  As I have said before in this column, specials are created  cooperatively with our suppliers.  They make us an offer of a price  reduction on certain Items for a  limited period of time If we will advertise the Items. We generally follow  the price guide lines laid down by our  supplier on specials, but not always.  Sometimes they may be a bit higher  to compensate for freight, which on  fresh beef is between 6 and 8c a lb.,  but generally the exact lower  mainland pricing structure wherein  we absorb the cost of freight.  IN ANY CASE, if the published  price of any Item that we have advertised in the same time frame is less,  we will at least meet that price.  As we say, you may shop with confidence as to price, and we furthermore fully guarantee everything we  sell to be satisfactory or money  cheerfully refunded.  It Pays to  Advertise!  Further to my shop talk of  September 22 wherein I stated the  high cost of our Insurance as being  over $7,500 per annum, a representative of an insurance company, having been shown my shop talk on the  subject', called and offered to give us  identical coverage and more, for approximately $3,000 less per annum.  That shop talk paid off for us,���and a  thank you to our business friends  who steered the Insurance salesman  our way. It also tells us to be more  businesslike and get competitive  bids. Monied people even get competitive bids from the banking fraternity on large deposits or loans, but  the poor bloke usually has to lake  what's offered.  Thanksgiving  The theme of thanksgiving is  thanks for peace, plenty, health and  happiness. It is also a time to be  generous in remembering the less  fortunate.  No matter how we suffer, for ali of  us have, it is not until we look around  us and see that others are worse off,  that we will cease to grumble and be  content with our lot.  I hold the view that much of our  misery is self-inflicted. Happiness is  a positive state oi mind. Let us give  thanks to HIM, and accentuate the  positive, good side of our life.

I  walked into the Coasl News  office the other day, wearing  tny sweat pants and Adidas,  and Manuane announced my  arris al by saying, "Here  comes the 'jock'." That  word-'jock'-sends a spiteful  shiver down my back. There is  no word I despise more! I am  NOT a jock, have never been a  jock, nor do I have any plans  of becoming one!  *tou see, ihere is a vasi  chasm separating 'jock' from  'athlete', lust look at the  origins of Ihe Iwo words.  'Athlete' comes from ihe  Greek, 'aihleta', meaning  'contestant In ihe games',  '.lock' comes from 'jock-  sirap'.  As much as I hale the lerm,  'jock', I will admil it fits some  men and women, but Ihere are  also those who deserve lo be  properly identified as athletes.  Therefore I have taken upon  myself the lask of clarifying  once and for all which is  which.  First of all,  A jock sweats.  An athlete perspires.  A jock devours steak and  eggs for breakfast and  burps Ihe entire mornig.  An alhlele eats grapenuls  and chews each bile 88  limes, so Ihat it is properly  digested.

A jock will blame a loss on  a hangnail or a blister or a  split lip.  An athlete will bravely congratulate his opponent  before changing the dressing on his head wound.  A jock jogs on ihe highway,  so that all those who see  him will feel inferior.  An athlete jogs in Ihe  wilderness ai midnighl and  counts many species of nocturnal animals as his close  friends.  Jogging on the highway, a  jock wears a double-knil  sweatsuit and gucci running  shoes.  Jogging in the wilderness,  an alhlele wears only Ihe  wind.  A jock drives a BMW, a TR  6, or an Alfa Romeo.  An athlete walks briskly.  A  jock   lives   in  a   condominium   development,  usually a singles complex.  An alhlele lives in a log  cabin above the timberline.  A jock lakes his dale to Ihe  Keg and Cleaver and ends  up eating her steak as well  as both of his.  An athlete meets his date at  the Organic Tuber Emporium and splits a sprout  and avocado sandwich with  her. Dutch treat, naturally.  A jock tells his dale he likes  io walk in the rain, though  he secretly detests what il  does to his blown-dry hair.  An athlete suntans in Ihe  rain.  A jock listens to Engleburl  Humperdinck   and   Mon-  tavanni.  An  athlete listens  to Ihe  navy   drill   record   on  aerobics.  A   jock   wears   rainbow,  bikini briefs to bed.

The ladies have  planned a lurkey shoot on  ladies day. We read about the  good old days when a person  would go out in the woods and  bag a turkey for Thanksgiving, now our golfers go out on  the golf course and try to bag a  good score for a butler ball for  dinner.  Last Tuesday the ladies  played a never was tournament. First flight winners were  Kay Budd and Judy Foreman  with Marg Arbuckle taking the  runner-up spot. Second flight  winner was Olive Shaw.  Runner-up was Glenna  Salahub. The nine-hole contestants also played a "never  was" event. This tournament  is open to any of Ihe golfing  ladies who have not hit Ihe  winner's circle Ihis year.

Good arguments may be made  for choosing one over the  other, bul fortunately Ihere is  ihe obvious and, happy compromise of planting some of  each. For the new gardener  who mighi be somewhat confused by ihe multitude of  choices he faces when he  begins his planting, there are  three sources of help.  I. Take a walk around to  look al some good gardens in  your area and. make some  notes. If Ihe gardener is nearby, ask him or her some ques-  lions and I assure ihe reader of  a friendly and helpful reply.  2. Buy some inexpensive  books; Sunset, for example,  on landscaping Ihat are  available locally and are priced  from $2.95 io $4.95.  3.

I will discuss  only a few methods.  I irsik, whal should wc use  to nuikc compost? Use  vegetable waste from ihe  garden and kitchen, and lhal  most valuable ingredient, lawn  cuttings, Avoid heavy woody  stems and meal wastes.  Compost nun lues more  quickly and wiih less leaching  nl' nutrients il it is eon mined.  Ihe ideal container is of cc-  inciil or brick, bin well seasoned wood is satisfactory. I.case  the occasional ventilation  hole, hui not so many lhal  heal is lost. Make one accessible side removable. A useful  size would be sis feci by sis  leet h\ four feci deep. A good  small container is in oil drum,  both ends icmo'ed, wilh u*u-  lillllion holes punched.  Attempt to construct some  sort of floor, a layer of rocks,  heavy plastic or well seasoned  wood. Containers help lo  create and retain heal, which is  important, since il kills most  weed seeds and disease spores.  Now foi the building of  compost Itself. Place layers of  organic waste sis inches 10 a  fool deep in ihe container,  then alternately layers ol  manure or seaweed aboul iwo  inches deep. From time to lime  introduce a lew shovels lull of  good earth, with its worms  and bacteria. Water ihe lasers  if ihey become dry. Keep ihe  pile covered with a piece ol old  carpet or black plastic during  ihe building process, 1 lien.  when the bin is lull, put aboul  sis inches of earth on lop and  cover wiih the carpel 01  plastic,  If you do not have materials  oi lime io build a bin. make a  composl heap. Use a piece ol  plastic or houghs to make a  floor, then build sour pile in  the same sequence as for fill-  tug the bins, a good thick  ouyer of organic mailer, then  a ihin layer of manure or  seaweed. Water the layers as  necessary. You can cover your  heap wiih earth, then old  carpel or plastic to generate  and retain heat.  Remember, composting is  an ideal way to use organic  wastes from the garden and  kitchen, and also an inexpensive was io enrich nest scar's  garden soil.

House numbering  system planned  Regional planner Jim Johnstone confirmed last week thai the  Sunshine Coasl Regional District is preparing a house numbering syslem for ihe entire Sunshine Coasl, a project that was  begun in 1979 with summer student help.  A request was seni lo ihe Villages of Sechelt and Gibsons, asking for their wiinen approval io co-operate with ihe regional  house numbering scheme "which would provide house numbers  in an orderly fashion from Langdale to Pender Harbour",  "Very definitely, Ihe village number systems lhal are being used now will be out," said Johnstone. Besides renumbering  houses in the villages lo conform lo the overall districi plan,  there may also be some renaming of streets in cases where there  is a duplication of street names on the coasl or where some  streets have more than one name, as in ihe case of Gower Polnl  Road in Gibsons.  Gibsons council discussed ihe regional plan at lasi Monday's  planning meclings and agreed that orderly numbers would be  useful, although it would involve an expense in those cases  where si reels have lo be re-named,  Alderman Bill Edney slated lhal public safely should be ihe  foremost consideration because under Ihe presenl system  emergency vehicles such as fire trucks, police cars and ambulances have difficulty finding addresses.  Sechell Mayor Bud Koch lold the Coast News Ihat the  Regional District proposals had been approved by Sechell council and lhal ihe plan for a co-ordinated numbering syslem for the  coasl is a good one.  ���a  silent tam'i  hair-, tilling  tueaday - Saturday 105  ���  ' i  for appointment  call Tcrrl or Llx  885-5911  wharl rd. %<>ihelt  A  I  DISCOUNT PRICES  ��� Furniture    ��� T.V.'s & Stereos  ��� Appliances * Auto Stereos, etc.  KERN'S HOME  FURNISHINGS  Seaview Place,  Gibsons  886-9733  Tues. - Sat.  9 am. ��� 5 pm.

Delnegro died in a logging accident ai Narrows Inlet last June  when a sliding log penetrated the protective grill of Ihe cab of a  model 48 H Lorraine Hydraulic Loader which he was operating.  The Coroner's jury found the death to be accidental and caused by massive injuries to chest and abdomen.  The oiher findings of ihe jury were: "(I) The window grid on  Ihe cab mel the proteclive requirements of the Workmen's Compensation Board (WCB). (2) The protective grid sustained very  Mule damage from ihe log's penelraiion. (3) The offending log  was felled downhill, there is no known reason for ihe log's later  movement. (4) The loader being used is common in the logging  industry for Ihis particular operation. (5) The operator of the  machine had 14 years experience in logging and had considerable  experience on ihe Lorraine Loader."  The jury made iwo recommendations to be brough to the al-  lenlion of the WCB and ihe Council of Foresl Industries (CFI)  and ihe International Woodworkers of America (IWA).  The lirsl was lhal the WCB pui logelher a panel of experienced engineers lo study, wiih input from machine operators, the  adequacy of Iheir regulations concerning the safely grills.  The second recommendation from the jury staled lhal Ihe inlormallon regarding the nature of this incident and remedial action taken by Ihe company involved be sent to the CFI, Ihe IWA  and WCB. Hopefully Ihese agencies will encourage the inspec-  lion of hillside operalions for possible hazards before log handling jobs begin.  The investigators of ihe accident fell this case to be one of ex-  iremely "bad luck" as ihe log was jusl ihe right size and at the  righl angle lo penelrale ihe eight inch proteclive grill of Ihe cab.

I remember clearly the  anguish which report cards  brought to our children, only  one of whom was a so-called  "A" student, In vain to tell  the others iheir progress was  satisfactory, lliai in Iheir own  was and in ihe different environment In which ihey were  working their progress was the  equivalent of iheir sister's,  rhey hadn'i goi A on their  report   cards  and  therefore  ihey were dumb.  And ihe private anguish was  as nothing compared io Ihe  public shame. On repori card  days, wailing lor your child  outside Ihe school, il was easy  io lell which children had ihe  A's, all those little faces,  stoically blank as ihey  responded lo ihe flurry of  questions from the excited  lucky ones. "I've got three  A's, how many have you  got?"  Even more difficult and  demoralizing lo iry io explain  lo your child why, although he  goi 9()Tu on Ihe test, he only  goi I) on his repori card. That  mosl pernicious device to pro-  mole mediocrity, ihe Bell  Curve, pre-supposes lhal in  each class there will be a  predictable ratio of good and  poor students, roughly Sfo  good students, 5% poor, 50%  average and ihe resl in between. In grading ihe class ihis  curve musl be adhered lo, so if  half the class goi over 9OTo on  a given lest, slill only 5%  could gei A's on iheir repori  cards. The choice would have  lo be made taking other work  into account.  While it may statistically  produce an accurate indication  of scholastic achievement in  any given class and al Ihe same  lime prevent teachers from  boosting iheir own prowess by  giving too many A's, it does  absolutely nothing lo encourage 95% of ihe class to  believe in ihemselves and Iheir  potential ability.  While a teacher is responsible for class progress and will  be assessed accordingly, report  cards surely are for ihe individual child, his or her  achievement.  If, as I hope, ihis particularly nasty piece of educational  trickery is no longer in use,  ihen a percentage mark al the  secondary level without the  need to translate il into a letter  grade is enough presumably.  A case may be made, I suppose, lhal we live in a competitive society, one in which  competition for jobs will be  even more inlensive as we put  our electronic technology to  work, and lhal getting used to  competition is pari of the learning environment we should  provide for children at least at  ihe secondary level, but at  least we can honestly repori a  child's progress and competence.  I suspect il is ihe parents of  bright children wiih the son of  Intelligence and motivation  which processes information  easily who press for leller  grades 10 know how Iheir child  stands in relation 10 his peers.  And sure it's nice lo know  your child is lop of his/her  class, makes the honour roll or  whatever.  Bui if Bell is right and only  5% of any class has this sort of  intelligence and motivation  and il isn't the only sort of in-  iclligence, how do educators  feel about a system which is  geared to such a small percentage of students?  Make no mistake, children  know where they stand in relation to the other children in  Iheir class. It doesn't take  those bright-eyed and bushy-  tailed 6 year olds who come inlo grade I long to find oul  where ihey fil into the system.  Il doesn't matter what names a  teacher gives lo the groups inlo which she divides the  children, whether they're called bluebirds and robins or  something from Star Wars,  Ihe kids quickly discover  which is the top group. If their  estimation ihat they are slow is  re-inforced at report lime by C  grades it's inevitable ihat a lot  of ihe incentive and enjoyment  in learning is lost.  Imagine how you'd feel as  you progress up the school  ladder and it becomes increasingly apparent thai all you can  hope for is a C report card. It  represents a passing mark, but  It's demoralizing jusl the  same.  Sechelt Arena  Every Monday  8:30-10:30 p.m.  Adult  Only  Skate  Figure Skating Pro.  In ��tt��Mfaince to  give   instruction.

Phone 885-2935  I remember the shock of  hearing a teacher respond to a  question from another teacher  asking about a child who was  being transferred from Gibsons to Sechelt���"Oh, he's a  C average," was the reply. As  if that letter grade summed up  all there was to say about Ihat  child. It is a basic professional  challenge for all teachers to  encourage and foster the individuality of each child and it  certainly doesn't help if at  report time Ihey have to  reduce those unique individuals to group anonimity  by a letter grade.  I've seen lots of changes in  this school district since our  children were in elementary  school, most of them good,  and it was particularly encouraging to see the report  cards developed by the  kindergarten teachers, reports  which stress the child's  achievement, abilities and attitudes in designated key  areas, emphasizing what the  child can do and giving  him/her good feelings about  their ability to cope with life at  school.  A return to letter grades  would be a backwards step, a  denial of Ihe commitment to  provide for each child according to his/her needs.  If s been stretched  for almost 3 years.  We can't stretch it  any further.  In memoriam  Betty Flockhart  Betty Flockhart's was a familiar face for many as they  passed through ihe cafe at the Langdale Ferry Terminal.  Her death last month after a brief illness shocked many of  her friends and co-workers.  Her husband, Bill Flockhart, has just left for a trip to  Scotland where he and his wife met and married. Before he  left he expressed his appreciation for the many kind words  and acts of kindness he received during his wife's illness  and upon his bereavement.  He particularly expressed his appreciation to the staff of  St. Mary's Hospital and to Dr. Eric Paetkau.  Betty Flockhart was born in Arbroath, Scotland 56 years  ago. She first came to the Sunshine Coast with her husband in 1963 and had been a permanent resident since  1970.  In recent years she was a member .of the Gibsons Legion  Auxiliary and played a promineht part in organizing the  yearly Burns Suppers which have for many years been an  important date on the local social calendar.  You don't need reminding that almost  everything costs a lot more now than it did  almost 3 years ago ��� the time ot the last  postal increase.  But, can you imagine how much operating costs have risen for the postal system  that serves the second largest country in  the world?  The cost of operating and fueling our vast  transportation network, the cost ofessen-  tlal equipment and the cost of our work  force have all risen substantially.  In spite of our best efforts, the combined  effects of these increased operating costs  have brought Canada Post to the point  where it does not have the financial  resources necessary to follow through  on important steps being taken to improve  service.  Some of the steps we want to take are:  Introduce more extensive quality control  aiming at a consistent mail service within  Canada  Implement a new service-monitoring  process which will improve reliability.  Expand letter carrier delivery within many  communities to provide more complete  service.  Increase Ih* availability ol specialized  mail services such as Priority Post, Special  Delivery and Electronic Mail.  Taking positive action.  By soon becoming a public corporation,  Canada Post will have the freedom to  operate as a more responsive and efficient  business, and eventually stop being a subsidized arm of government with its resulting  burden on the taxpayer.  But no business can be healthy or efficient If It fails to recognize and adapt to  the economic realities in which it must  function.  And the present reality is that the  existing postal rates do not reflect the costs  involved in running Canada's mall service  the way it should be run.  It is for this reason that Canada Post  plans the implementation of new postal  rates early next year.  Some ol these planned rates can be  seen In the following table:  1st Class letter in Canada 0-30 gm    30��  1st Class letter to U.S.A.   0-30 gm    35e  Parcel Post  same city tkilo St.10  1st Class Parcel  e.g. Montreal to Vancouver   1 kilo $3.35  Special Delivery  $1 plus 1st Class Postage  Canada Post has ��� national responsibility  to provide th* most reliable and complete  mall service possible. Th* Implementation  of Ihes* new rates Is necessary II revenues  are to be brought more In line wilh operating expenses... necessary lo ease the  burden of a deficit on Ih* taxpayer. And  most important ol all, necessary to allow  Canada Post to become, through Improved  service, one ot th* bail null systems In  th* world.

In  his attempts to justify his overweening ego and explain his  peculiar actions, not only to  himself but to his fellow-men,  he has attempted to create (in  his own image) a God or a  Supreme Being who is not only  responsible for the earth he is  living upon but the whole  universe and upon that  Creator man has conjured up  rests the most important part  of man's illusion���that he is to  be immortal and, on leaving  this vale of tears, he will embark on another and better life  elsewhere.  To anyone who with an  open mind has read and  studied the history of the  world since the inception of  the written word, it is apparent  that this illogical belief on  man's part has been fostered  and nurtured through the ages  by unscrupulous, individuals  who, for strictly selfish  reasons of their own, have  seen an unequalled opportunity to profit by encouraging the  delusions of others. As  Voltaire so aptly wrote,  "religion was born on the day  when the first knave met the  first fool". In many different  parts of the world and under  various guises this "knave"  has been known and given  many names. It matters little if  he is called medicine man,  shaman, witch doctor, pastor  VILLAGE OF SECHELT  NOTICE OF ELECTION  Public notice is hereby given to the electors of the Municipality of Sechelt that I re-  qure the presence of the electors at the Municipal Office, Inlet Avenue, Sechelt,  B.C., on Monday the 26th day of October, 1981, at the hour of ten o'clock in the  forenoon, for the purpose of electing persons to represent them as follows:  One (I) Mayor 2 year term  Two (2) Aldermen 2 year term  The mode of nomination of Candidates shall be as follows:  Candidates shall be nominated in writing by two duly qualified electors of the  municipality.

I.vycopland  Returning Officer  or priest, they are all birds of a  feather, but the most relevant  point to remember is that iheir  motives and modes of operation remain the same.  Perhaps al this stage I  should make it clear that I am  not attacking any one particular brand of religion and it  must be realized that it is  beyond the scope of a mere  column or two to cover so vast  a subject. I am not concerned  with the complexities and  shades of religious thought  thai have captured the imagination and bemused the  minds of man since he  descended from the trees and  commenced to walk upright.  Millions of words and hundreds of thousands of volumes  have been written in the attempt to make sense out of  something Ihat not only is illogical but unexplainable in  the first place. Any concept of  God by man is, of necessity,  bounded by the limitations of  the human mind and I have yet  to meet a man, ecclesiastical or  otherwise, who knew more  about the reasons and purpose  for our being here or our  ultimate destination than I do.  All they had to offer in the  way of an explanation was  purely hypothetical, based in  most cases on some crackpot  aspect of theology they have  assimilated through their  reading of Holy Writ and  bolstered by that mystical  quality called faith. Whether  they themselves possess that  magic ingredient is debatable,  but from what I have observed  on my stumbling journey  through life even a lurtatic in  an asylum believes what he  wants to believe and his  dreams and illusions are no  less real from the fact that he  has been declared insane. Who  knows, he may be far more  sane than the powers of  authority who committed him  there or the doctors,  psychologists and psychiatrists  who are assigned to observe  him and assess his behaviour.  Leaving other major  religions aside for the moment, it is my personal belief  that Christianity as interpreted  and practised over the centuries since it came into being  and based solely on the so-  called Holy (?) Bible, could  well lead to the assumption by  an impartial observer that its  adherents were definitely mentally unhinged and should be  confined not only for their  own protection but for the  safety of others.  How anyone can make sense  out of a confused hodgepodge of truths, half truths,  ambiguities, contradictions,  distorted facts and demented  ravings is beyond me. In my  view the Old Testament could  be described as a somewhat  bombastic account of history  written by a race of people  who had convinced themselves  that they were the chosen people of their conception of  Jehovah whom, from their accounts, must have been the  most merciless, vindictive and  blood-thirsty deity ever imagined. At some indeterminate  date in history all this was in  some way miraculously changed and now, inconsistently, we  are asked to believe that He  has been transformed into a  kind, gentle, loving and compassionate father lo us all,  saint and sinner alike.  Assuming that the events  recorded in the New Testament have some basis in fact  and are nol the product of someone's vivid imagination, it  would appear, irrespective of  who or what He was, thai a  new teacher had appeared on  the scene.

One cannot but agree with  many of the things He preached, but what concerns me is  the manner in which those  teachings have been debased  and twisted around to suit  man's own selfish ends.  Somehow I cannot reconcile  the picture of an honest and  undoubtedly sincere man  trudging barefoot over the hot  dusty roads of Galilee, convinced of his mission and his  message, with what followed  after his conviction and  crucifixion. Far from resolving anything and, I am certain,  a far cry from what He intended, His teachings not only  have been corrupted and  misrepresented over the centuries but have been the main  cause of most of the bitterness, bigotry and bloodshed  that has occurred in the name  of religion ever since.  I want no part of the commercialized Christianity  packaged and peddled by the  churches today or by the high-  pressured hucksters such as  the Grahams, the Roberts, the  Armstrongs or the Falwells. If  I had my way these consummate con-artists would be  behind bars.  I find it both ludicrous and  tragic that man cannot come  to terms with himself and accept life for what it is. There is  so much that is beautiful to be  experienced and enjoyed. Why  do we have to be obsessed with  thoughts and plans for an extremely doubtful hereafter?  Can we not settle for living  one day at a time while we are  here? Must we strive to reach  the unreachable or leave a  pyramid behind to mark our  passing?

The delegation from the Villages of Sechelt told the Coast  News that they had been granted a 40 minute interview with both  the minister and inspector at which time they made a presentation of their views and concerns.  "Municipal Affairs has agreed to intervene in the restructuring talks," said Sechelt Mayor, Bud Koch. "They have  recognized that in the restructuring 'fight', for that is what it has  come to, that Ihe basic idea behind restructuring, to better serve  the interests of the people on the Sunshine Coast, has been lost  sight of. It has become nothing more than a power struggle.  "We did nothing to deride the SCRD or the Village of Gibsons in our talk with the minister," said Koch. But, he told the  Cosst News that he felt the regional board was not friendly  towards the idea of Sechelt's growth. "We are being choked; it  took eight years for the board to OK one subdivision in the  village," he said.  "The regional board is made up of the elected representatives  for most of the people on the coast but the decisions are not  coming from them, but the secretary-treasurer, Larry Jardine.  Staff are not elected by the people and should only be consulted  in non-political matters."  Alderman/director Brian Stelck said that the delegates from,  the Village of Sechelt told Municipal Affairs that they wished to  know where they stood in the restructuring picture and what options were available to them.  "Eighteen months ago, the village had begun a study of  amalgamation which included the Areas B and C. We were told  to put the study on hold as the restructuring of the entire Sunshine Coast was being looked at, said Stelck.  Stelck said that they informed Municipal Affairs that they had  to proceed soon with some kind of restructuring.  "The regional board passed a motion that asked ihe Ministry  to assist them in doing a study on restructuring which was agreed  to by the village representatives on the board. But when the motion was sent to Victoria, I understand that a map was sent along  with the proposed boundaries for a district municipality which  black lined around the boundaries of the two villages.  "We, the villages, want to be included in the talks, Not as an  option but as an assurance. We feel we should be allowed to do  our own research independently of the board if we wish.  "Director Jim Gurney of Area E made a statement at a past  board meeting that he felt that the initiative was being taken  away from the board by a questionnaire printed prematurely in a  local newspaper. Woodward assured us that we could do our  own research and that it was not exclusive for the board.  "The Village of Sechelt's position has not changed. We are  willing to participate in any discussions on restructuring and let  the Ministry draw the boundaries. At the point it becomes a war,  we are going to step back," said Stelck, "and contrary to belief,  we have not made a pact with Gibsons. We must, and need, to  proceed with some form of restructuring. The 1000 residents of  Sechelt can no longer afford to pay for and provide playing  fields, roads, etc. that are being used primarily by the fringe  areas."  Mayor Lorraine Goddard told the Coasl News that the Village  of Gibsons delegates went to discuss with Municipal Affairs the  status of their boundary extensions.  "Mr. Woodward told us that he had met with Sechelt and he  repeated that he would not entertain the idea of a district  municipality to be formed around the villages," said Goddard.  She also said that Woodward had confirmed with her that on the  issue of restructuring research, the regional board was not exclusive to information gathering.  Chairman of the Sunshine Coast Regional District, David  Hunter, expressed his concerns on the "documented presentation" given by the Village of Sechelt to Municipal Affairs  without the prior knowledge or consultation with the members  of the board.  "We, the five electoral area directors, (Area C, Charles Lee's  constituency excluded) are very upset that the tails are trying to  wag the dog. We will not be dictated to by the representatives of  10% of the population on the Sunshine Coast. We shall protect  the majority of the people from the vested interest of so few. We  want an open, constructive analysis of the ramification of  restructuring on the Sunshine Coasl," said Hunter.  Hunter told the Coast News that a letter will be drafted stating  the position of the electoral area directors on this matter and  send it to Municipal Affairs in the near future. Copies of the letter will be made public.  Hunter also told the Coast News that the map sent to  Municipal Affairs did not black line the villages, only outlined  them.  Area  ��� Fran Bourassa Photo  'C residents take a close look at the detailed plan for Ihe  collector road that will run near their homes.  Roads main Area C topic  Continued from Page One  "Basically, the plan of the road network would result in three  highways, the present Highway 101, a new intermediate route  midway between Highway 101 and the hydro line, and the new  third route following the power line. They [highways officials)  warned that not all corridors will be surveyed as field surveys are  expensive, time consuming and can be alarming to residents of  the area."  Another member on the regional board in 1973, Frank West,  echoed the sentiments of Almond.  "We said yes to the general idea of the grid system but only  when we needed it and we wanted to set as a priority the construction of the by-pass highway," said West.  Tucker Forsyth, from the local department of highways, told  the Coast News that the purpose for the collector road is to have  an alternate east-west road to service the subdivisions being  developed in the area.  "The Ministry has to look into the future when planning and  developing road network plans. These roads are what the area  neds and will need. The Ministry is more than willing to listen to  the concerns of citizens, but ultimately they are responsible for  providing good, safe corridors," said Forsyth. "I suppose that I  too would be upset and wouldn't want a major road to pass by  my house."  It is felt that the delegations going to Victoria will not meet  with much success.

Turner said that the completion of the OPP should take thred  months, which would include time for writing and public input;  The committee discussed application for titles to lands for  park purposes and the matter of land swaps. ���  "It seems that the Ministry of Lands, Parks and Housing does  not care for the exchange route because of the large amount of  .time it takes to complete the deals," said Charles Lee, the committee chairman.  "It seems to me," said director Harry Almond, "from conversations with the Ministry, that if we are willing to do the leg*  work ourselves that they are prepared to take it from there."  Alderman/director Brian Stelck agreed. "At the Union of  British Columbia Municipalities convention, Al Rhodes from  the Ministry of Lands, Parks and Housing told me that we have  to set our priorities and as far as land swaps go, we spend our'  own staff time in the assessment of lands involved in the swaps,"  get the deal together and then the Ministry will get involved.  "The acquiring of park lands on the Sunshine Coast is only a  matter of extra work for us. Let's go on with it," said Stelck.'  Turner gave the committee many helpful hints and directions-  as they leafed through the study and its recommendations, on  what was involved in acquiring the lands, and which parcels the  parks branch would favour.  At UBCM  Stelck asks about  local highways  'The Bear Pit Session' at the Union of British Columbia  Municipalities (UBCM) convention, is a time set aside for!  delegates to pose questions to the cabinet ministers.  On Friday, September 25, at the televised portion of the convention held in Vancouver, alderman/director Brian Stelck ask-,  ed questions of Energy Minister Bob McClelland and Minister  of Transportation and Highways Alex Fraser that dealt with two.  local issues: the route of the natural gas pipeline from the interior to Vancouver Island, and the proposed by-pass highway  for the Sunshine Coast. '  On behalf of the Association of Vancouver Island,'  Municipalities (AVIM, of which the SCRD is a member), Stelck.  asked McClelland when the scheduled completion date was for;  the natural gas pipeline. Stelck also thanked B.C. Premier Bill;  Bennett for the promise of public hearings which are to be held  in the spring.  McClelland said that no firm decisions had been made at the  present time, "But it is fair to say," said McClelland, "that we  are taking a second look at the Northern Route."  Sechelt Mayor Bud Kock told the Coast News that anyone  with concerns for or against the pipeline should begin preparing  his brief at this time for the public hearings to be held sometime  in the spring.  The second question directed to Alex Fraser and asked on,  behalf of the Sunshine Coast delegates inquired into the starting*  date of construction of the proposed by-pass highway on' the"  Coast. Stelck told Fraser of the delegates' concerns about the;  additional load to be put on the existing poor highway in the ad- *  vent of the new 'stretch' ferries that will carry 400 cars. ;  Fraser answered that he was not surprised that the Sunshinej  Coast was getting better service from the Ministry, "We will get'  on with the construction of the by-pass when funds are1  available. We do realize the roads on the Sunshine Coast are in- -���  adequate," said Fraser, non-committally.

Socred education policy  Editor:  , The following is a copy of a  letter to Don Lockstead in  response to his story in your  paper of September 15, entitled: Education Report is Disappointing. 1 would very much  appreciate if you would be so  kind as to publish it in the  Coast News. Thank you.  Yours sincerely,  Arthur Shaw  Pear Mr. Lockstead:  I have just read your  criticism of Socred education  policy, buried beneath the Police news of the week, on page  9 of the September 15 Coast  News. I think your comments  are valid except that there is  emerging, especially in the  U.S., a somewhat distressing  new line of though on what  you refer to as "Special  Needs" and what is sometimes  called "Learning Disabilities". For more information  on ihis, and in case you have  some real concern about  trends in education, I suggest  you subscribe to a bi-monthly  publication which has been  coming out of Boston since  1977, called Growing Without  Schooling. The prime mover  for this excellent, low-cost  magazine is none other than  Mr. John Holt, the author of  numerous books about  children and learning, and  failure to learn. The address is  729 Baylston Street, Boston,  Mass. 02116.  You may recall that I left a  note in your campaign headquarters in Gibsons, was it  1978?, suggesting that the  most critical problem of our  time is the schooling problem.  We discussed it briefly at that  lime.  You are correct to mention  he increasing cost of school-  ng. I am going to make a con-  lection between that and the  ligh costs of policing. I  I tvonder if you are prepared to  hink about that?  At the present time in the  i United States, many families  schools would abolish compulsory attendance, the  amount of vandalism and  crime would drop dramatically.  People tend to have a knee-  jerk reaction to this idea  screaming, "licence, self-  indulgence, promiscuity,  drugs!!" Personsonally, I am  amazed that the mass media is  still able to generate such  hysteria, particularly about  marijuana.  Thank you again for your  information, I remain,  Yours faithfully,  Arthur Shaw  Box 245  Gibsons, B.C.  P.S. I am send a copy of this  letter to John Burnside of the  Coast News, particularly for  the benefit of the Senior  Citizens in our community,  many of whom would like to  understand what is wrong with  the young people, and why  taxes are so high. Some people  say, "99-70 of the teenagers are  fine!

The murderer was a quiet  boy who sat on the front seat  and regarded me with pale  blue eyes; the evangelist, easily  the most popular boy in  school, had the lead in the  junior play; the pugilist lounged by the window and let loose  at intervals with a raucous  laugh that startled even the  geraniums; the thief was a gay  hearted Lothario with a song  on his lips; and the imbecile, a  soft eyed little animal always  sought the shadows.  All of these pupils once sat  in my classroom and looked at  me gravely across a worn  brown desk. I must have been  a great help to these pupils���I  taught them the rhyming  scheme of the Elizabethan  sonnet and how to diagram a  complex sentence and gave  them an A, a B, a C, for their  results. One received an E and  failed my course."  Neighbours, to sum up the  debate best of all when the letter grade advocates begin to  speak, "failing a child is like  fining a man when he is  broke."  Yours truly  Glaus Spiekermann  General Delivery  Bowen Island, B.C.  Nature Note  ���        by Vlckl deBoeY*}     f.  The phrase 'Playing  Possum' comes from the  Opossum's peculiar habit of  playing dead when threatened.  It is not known if the Opossum  consciously plays dead or if it  is a natural reflex of the body  stimulated by fear. Whatever  the reason, no animal does it  as well as the Opossum. When  seriously threatened, he suddenly goes limp, rolling over  with his eyes shut and tongue  hanging out. Even his  breathing slows down and no  amount of prodding or poking  will rouse him. As soon as the  threat is past the Opossum  wakes up and ambles off in his  slow ungainly gait.  Opossums are North  America's only marsupial and  they are the most primitive  mammal on this continent.  Marsupials do not have a  placenta and the young are  born after a very brief gestation period. The young of the  Opossum are in the embryo  stage when born, after a gestation period of 13 days. From  eight to 18 babies emerge from  the mother at birth and they  must crawl a few inches  through the mother's fur to  her pouch.  The pouch of the Opossum  runs along the outside of her  stomach and contains 13 nipples. If more than 13 babies  are born, only the first to  grasp a nipple will survive.  Once the babies grasp the nipple it swells inside the mouth  to provide a constant food  supply and a firm attachment.  To give you an idea of the  size of Opossums at birth, 16  to 20 of them can fit into a  *��BfeSjJdb|. The young remain  witnifl'tne pouch for 20 weeks  and aftoyhat* they stay with  their mother for another four  weeks, usually hitching a ride  on her back, often with their  tails wrapped around her tail  which she throws over her  back,  For those of you who have  never seen an Opossum, they  are a peculiar, untidy looking  creature with coarse unruly  hair. They are about the size  of a large cat with very short  legs, a long pointed nose with  a pig-like snout. They have  large round eyes and rounded  ears. Most obvious of all is  their rat-like prehensile tail  that is as long as their body.  This tail is used by the  Opossum to hang upside down  from fruit or berry trees while  reaching for hard-to-get food.  Opossums are nocturnal  and they spend their days  sleeping in dens and nests  made by other animals. On  their nightly forages  Opossums eat almost anything  including bugs, reptiles, birds  eggs, carrion plus fruit, berries  and various vegetable matter.  They are not. true liiber-  nators but they will go into a  deep sleep for days at a time  during   very   cold   weather.  Opossums are hunted and  trapped for their fur, which is  nol of very good quality, but is  used to make simulated  beaver. In some places in the  south they are eaten and the  dish 'Possum and Sweet  Taters' is highly esteemed.  One writer states, however,  that it is best to throw away  the 'Possum' and eat the  'Taters'.  T  NO.

This will occur where the  lender has some reservation as  to the borrower's ability to  repay the loan. In such a case  the lender will want to have  the loan guaranteed by someone who is more financially  sound - usually a close  relative.  It will also occur where the  borrower is married and the  lender wants his/her spouse to  guarantee the loan. This is in  part due to the natural tendency of a lender to want as much  security as possible for his  money and in part due to the  uncertainty as to the ownership of the family assets which  he may view as security for the  loan.  To understand your liability  as a guarantor the starting  point is the guarantee that you  sign - Reid It. Most  guarantees have somewhat  standard provisions but the  critical area in which they may  differ is in the amount of your  liability. In some instances you  will be guaranteeing all of the  borrowers liability with that  lender.  The net effect of your  guarantee is that you are on  the hook for the amount of  your guarantee in the event  that the borrower defaults on  his loan. The lender is not required to take legal action  against the borrower before  requesting repayment of the  loan from you. In the event  that you fail to repay the loan  when requested the lender can  take legal action directly  against you.  Should that happen and you  do repay the loan then you are  entitled to take the position of  the lender vis-a-vis the borrower. Thus you can request  the lender to assign to you any  security that he might have  from the borrower.  Admittedly all of this may  be of small comfort to you  since the reason that the lender  has turned to you for payment  is because he is unable to collect from the borrower.  Finally, I would add that  with respect to guarantees by  spouses you may find thai the  lender requires you to see a  lawyer and have him/her sign  a form verifying thai he/she  has advised you as to your  liability under the guarantee.  This practice has become more  common as a result of some  successful defences raised by  spouses that they were not  aware of the full effect of the  guarantee or that they had  been coerced inlo signing it.  CLASSIFIED NOTE  Drop oil your Coasl Ne<  Classified   at   Campbell s  Family Shoes. Sechelt. or  Madeira  Park  Pharmacy  Madeira Park  From the Attic  Baltimore Pear design then and now  by Helene Wallinder  The Baltimore Pear design  in particular has a complicated  history. First produced in 1874  by Adams & Co. of Pittsburgh, Pa., and first appeared under the name "Gipsy". This same pattern was  later called Fig, Twin Pear,  Double Pear and Maryland  Pear. The most popular and  enduring name has been  Baltimore Pear.  The pattern was originally  made in clear glass in a large  number of pieces, including 18  different compotes. In 1898,  after Adams & Co. had merged with the U.S. Glass Co., the  Baltimore Pear pattern was  reproduced.  Beginning in the 1930's, the  pattern was produced in all  forms, and has been called one  of the "pitfall" patterns. In  the 1950's, a few pieces of the  Baltimore Pear pattern were  re-issued by the Imperial Glass  Co. These are easy to identify  because the fruits were stained  with rose and blue color.  The Baltimore Pear pattern  now being reproduced from  the original molds by the Jean-  nette Co. is again in clear  glass, with no identifying  marks to distinguish the new  from the old. There are a few  minor differences. The old  cream pitcher had a scalloped  edge; the new one has a plain  edge.  The manufacturer says that  there is a small "R" stamped  in the bottom of the new butter dish, although this is not  true of the other new pieces.  The first run of the new pieces  copied exactly the opening in'  the handles of the butter dish  and the IO1/:" server. Later  runs have closed handles.  Reproduction pieces  available include an 8'/5" luncheon plate, a lO'/S" serving  tray, a 9" bowl, a AVi" bowl,  a 2 piece butter dish and a 3  piece* sugar and creamer.  Reproduction   sugar   and  creamer sets sell for about $10  in gift shops. Old sets would  cost between $40 and $120.  To sum up: If you see a  cream pitcher with a plain  -edge, ora* server* or a-butter  dish with closed handles, you  know it is new. Examine all  other pieces carefully.  Further information on this  pattern and other pressed glass  patterns can be found in Early  American Pressed Glass by  Ruth Lee and Early American  Pattern Glass by Alice Metz.

Congratulations Katie and  Tony!  by Don Lockstead  The week of October 4 to 10  has been proclaimed  "Agriculture Week" by the  B.C. Federation of  Agriculture, an organization  representing most of B.C's  20,000 farmers. We in the  NDP wish the farmers well in  this attempt to present their  concerns to the public.  Agriculture is one of our  most important provincial industries. Total cash receipts  from the sale of farm products  in 1980 amounted to $749  million. The most important  commodities are dairy products, eggs and poultry,  livestock and a wide range of  fruits and vegetables.  Many will be surprised to  learn that B.C. is almost 50%  self-sufficient in food production. This is all the more impressive when one considers  that less than 5% of the land  in B.C. lies . within the  Agricultural Land Reserve.  Agriculture was a majoi  priority area for the NDP  government of 1972-75. Dave  Stupich was a well-informed,  high-profile minister who had  full support from the premier  and the cabinet. He worked in  close consultation with the industry to develop a range of  new policies.  One of the most important  initiatives was the creation of  the Agricultural Land  Reserve. While it was controversial at the time, the  Agricultural Land Reserve has  since won wide acceptance.  Conservation of our small  supply of good agricultural  land is essential if we are to  maintain and increase our present level of self-sufficiency in  food production, and if we are  to maintain an appropriate  balance between urban and  rural development.  The present government has  done much to erode the land  reserve. While the minister of  agriculture pays lip servic? to  the land reserve, he and his  colleagues had destroyed the  integrity of the reserve.  The other side of the NDP  agricultural policy was the  farm income assurance program. Society decided that  farm land should remain in  farming, meaning that  agricultural land values are  often below what could be  realized if there were no land  use planning.  Society, then, has an obligation to ensure that farmers  receive a fair price for their  product; one that covers the  costs of production and allows  for a standard of living comparable to that of other British  Columbians.  Marketing initiatives assist  in this goal, but farm income  assurance is necessary if  farmers are to survive lean-  years and the cost-price  squeeze which has been caused  by high interest rates and high  inflation.  Farmers do not want  government handouts. They  rightly expect fair prices and a  reasonable standard of living.  The present Social Credit  government seems to place little importance on agriculture.  Premier Bennett recently said,  "agriculture does not contribute all that much to B.C.",  and he has even said that B.C.  is good for growing little except apples.  Under the Socreds, the  Agricultural Land Reserve has  been made subject to political  manipulation in order to  reward political friends of the  government. Farm support  programs such as the interest  reimbursement scheme and  farm income assurance have  been cut back along with the  budget of the ministry of  agriculture.  The Social Credit government's attitude towards  agriculture is shortsighted and  threatens to drive increasing  numbers of our hard pressed  farmers   into   bankruptcy.
