 LEGISLATIVE LIBRARY  Parliament Buildings  Victoria, B.C. V8V 1X4    4    "  COAST^NEWS  50 cents per copy on newsstands  LUUllUl  19 4 5  December 14,1992 Volume 46 Issue 50  Forestry  fertilizer  concerns  raised  by .lime Seyd  A Ministry of Forests fertilizer program originally Intended for 658 hectares on Ihe Sunshine Coast will now go ahead  in a much smaller area this  year, after concerns were  voiced hy bolh downstream  waler users and heallh officials.  In particular, plans lo use  fertilizer in both the Gray  Creek and Haslam Creek  watersheds have been pul on  hold following objections from  Ihe Sunshine Coasl Regional  Districl and Ihe Soulh Pender  Harbour Waterworks District.  Aerial spraying of the fertilizer Urea - which contains  mostly nitrogen - will go ahead  over a one or two-week period  in January in areas on Nelson  Island, near Dakota Creek on  Mt. Elphinstone, McNabb  Creek on Howe Sound and  Sechell Creek draining info  Salmon Inlet.  The fertilizer will be used  mainly on Douglas fir growing  at lower elevations, and is  meant to increase growth rate,  which can cut down rotation  lime for merchantable limber  by 10 to 14 years, says Alan  Shaw, district silviculturist for  the ministry.  Previously, fertilizer has not  been used on any large scale in  forests on the Sunshine Coasl,  although Ihere has been some  pasl spraying near Sechell, and  on Texada and Kedonda  islands. The ministry has also  conducted a more substantial  trial of fertilizer use in the nearby Squamish watershed.  Unlike applications for herbicide and pesticide use, formal  permits are noi required for fertilizers, although opinion of  other government agencies,  including departments of  heallh, fisheries, and wildlife  are consulted.  So far, the main concerns  about fertilizer use have been  over possible leaching into  water courses, which could  affect both downstream drinking water licencees and fisheries.  Ministry guidelines state 50-  metre buffers musl be left on  each side of creeks where there  are downstream water users  and 30-metre buffers are  required for fish-bearing  streams.  But bolh the regional district  and the local heallh unit are  viewing the fertilization program with caution.  "Whal we arc most concerned aboul is activity around  watersheds," says Jeremy Frith,  a regional director. "The balances around water courses are  very easy lo disturb."  The regional districl docs  noi have a blanket policy  opposing fertilizer use, says  Frilh, bul il would like lo see  the ministry run tests before  going inio large-scale application - and preferably not in the  winter months of heavy rainfall.  turn to page2  Dionne Paul and the Eagle Youth Council (EYC) model the fashion wear of local designers to  raise funds to help send the EYC to Arizona next year for a world conference of native youth  organizations. Joel Johnstone photo  Teaching days  settled, contract  talks progress  by Darah Hansen  Sunshine Coasl leachers are  saying Ihey are mil going lo join  Iheir counterpart! in lhe Lower  Mainland who have threatened  to sirike in protest of the slow  progress of contract lalks.  "We are bargaining our own  contract wilh our own hoard,"  said Sharon Wood, president of  the Sunshine Coasl Teachers'  Association (SCTA).  And though they support  action taken by other districts,  "We feel fairly content lhat we  can row our own       boat," Wood said.  Wood said Ihe difference here was lhal  leachers feel conlenl  wiih the progress of  their lalks due mainly  lo an air of co-opera-  lion   between   Ihe  SCTA and Ihe local       school board.  That's something many other  school boards have not experienced, said dislricl superintendent Clifford Smith, noting Ihe  72-hour sirike notice served by  leachers in other school districts.  Smith blames the increasingly confrontational style of negotiations between teachers and  hoards on lack of leadership  coming from Ihe Ministry of  Education, calling their present  posilions on contract settlement  "patently silly" and "wooden."  They are offering no direction, refusing lo lake Ihe lead  and say Ihis is Ihe way il is  going lo be, said Smith.  "Whal can you think of a  Ministry of Education that  hasn't gol a definition of  'instruction".' It's the same as if  Ihe Ministry of Heallh didn't  have a definition of the word  health."  It's a changing world, said  Smith: "Everything has become  so political."  In the pasl, employee groups  of all types, not just teachers,  have enjoyed a sense of permanence and security, said Smith.  "We've moved oul of lhat now.  Now we're guessing at everything and there is a huge  amount of conflict and fear.  "There is an enormous  amount of discomfort and it's  symptomatic of whal is coming  from the ministry."  In Ihis district, Smith said  'Wefeelfairly  content that  we can row  our own boat'  ���Sharon Wood  and the board has been key in  allowing them lo come lo agreeable conclusions on points of  conflict  A recent decision made following a special trustee meeting  ended ongoing discussion on  leachers' prolessional development days - an issue thai has  scnl many other districts into  chaos.  Under Ihe new agreement,  leachers are now guaranleed  release lime lo attend three full  days and four half days of pro-    fessional development activities as  stipulated in Iheir  contract.  Smith said Ihe  board is comfortable  with the decision and  is certain that students    will    still       receive Ihe 187 days  of instructional time  required under regulation eight  of the provincial School Act.  In an interview prior lo Ihe  final decision. Smith said he  reached a settlement wilh Wood  through a flexible definition of  Ihe term "instructional lime."  Smith said many of the  schools provide educational  programs outside the classroom  and can therefore be counted as  providing the legally required  hours and minutes.  Bolh Smith and Wood were  quick to add thai Ihis is not a  precedent-selling decision. The  agreement is only for this year,  said Wood.  "It is something that teachers  do and have always done," said  Wood of Ihe extra-curricular  activities. "It has usually been  voluntary but lhat doesn't mean  it doesn't meet the needs of  instructional lime."  Smith also added the board  will approve each school's professional day plans, provided  they can show each student is  offered the required hours of  instruction and parents and students are made aware this time  is available.  "We are trying to proceed in  a cautious and legal way," said  Smith, saying he doesn't trust  Ministry of Education promises  that they won't be audited by  "minister calendar police," who  could choose to withhold a percentage of budget funding  should it not meet their own cri-  flexibility from bolh the SCTA      teria.  Seeking seasonal solace, support at transition house  inside  cattail     pagan  umummltr   page 6  eenam    me 4  kerne       a/fit  earn       peee*  '���>���*��� pmii  By Stuart Burnside  Keep il simple: don'l let your  Christmas spirit come from a  bottle.  A small seasonal message  artistically painled on a sliding  glass door at Port Mellon's  Transition House (PMTH) for  men. but a message thai impacts  straight home and true for the  dozen plus residents of Ihe Dog-  palch drug and alcohol recovery  centre ... Chrislmas spirit wilh  no hangover.  This is Ihe first Chrislmas  celebrated at the PMTH and  many of the alcoholic and drug-  addicted residents will be passing the occasion at the house,  away from their families.  Which might not be such a  bad thing, according to PMTH  co-ordinalor Keith McNicol. He  says many of the problems  faced by alcoholics and drug  addicts stem from their home  environments. They end up  stuck in situations that perpetuate substance abuse while  accepting such situations as the  norm. Under those circumstances, McNicol says, Christmas is a far cry from being as  joyful as Chrislmas is supposed  to be.  Sitting in the living room on  Ihis overcast Thursday afternoon are two of the transition  house clients who will spend  Christmas in Dogpatch. One is  Jamie, a Coast resident who  asked to be admitted a month  ago; the other is Andy, a Van-  couverile who has been at the  house for two weeks. Both men  appear relaxed, and the scene,  'He ended up taking  a swan dive from a  Vancover rooftop'  with ils Christmas tree backdrop, could be found in half the  homes in North America  Both men have yet to see  their 35th birthday and neither  resembles the stereotypical skid  row derelict. They appear physically fit and neither suffers any  visible handicap.  Both, however, are cripples,  deformed on the inside and they  will admit as much to anyone  who asks. Jamie is an alcoholic  and Andy is addicted to drugs.  Jamie says spending a Christmas at PMTH is "no big thing,"  and that it's all part of the road  to recovery. He says he came to  the transition house because his  life blazed oul of control and  any relationship he entered  invariably ended in ashes. Now,  he says he has come to view the  house and ils occupants as a surrogate family, one lhal doesn't  criticize and one lhal cares whal  happens lo him. "This has saved  my life." he says, "I'd hit the  bottom."  Andy has a similar, if more  extreme tale. As he sits on a  transition house couch smoking.  looking perhaps a bit strung out.  he recounts how on his last drug  binge three weeks before, he  ended up taking a swan dive  from a Vancover rooftop. He  says he had discovered the  attention-fetching possibilities  of leaping from roof lo roof of  downtown buildings. He made  two successful jumps for a gathering crowd of onlookers before  television crews showed up to  record his final leap.  "I didn't make it over the  third (rooftop jump) ... it was a  long way down."  A tree broke his fall, for the  most part, bul he hit Ihe ground  hard, before hitting the news,  and ended up in hospital. McNicol got wind of his plight and  brought him to the PMTH.  turn to page 3  Transition house co-ordinator Keith McNicol  ��� ...     ,  M, Coast News, December 14,  1992  Season's Greetings  From the Faculty & Staff of Capilano College  * We will be closed lor Ihe holiday season from 4:00 pm December 18.

Though il appears nothing  was taken, many of the canned  ponds were opened and wasted,  powdered jello sprinkled  throughout the freezer and sugar  strewn aboul the floor.  The volunteers at the centre  just can'l understand why, just  guessing at who might be  responsible - kids who are  bored, Ihey thought, or maybe  someone who resents Ihe bank's  recipients."I'II lell you one  thing, if Ihey needed anything,  all Ihey had lo do is call and I'd  come righi oul," said long-time  volunteer Rudy Simon.  Simon and Ihe other two volunteers working Wednesday,  Joan Pratt and Kathy Rhodes,  said they're Ihere to help anyone who's hungry and Ihey  have enough to worry about  without having to think of how  they're going to secure Ihe  place against further attacks.  That same day they recorded  the highest figures any of the  Ihree could remember in Ihe last  seven or eight years. By the end  of the day 172 people came  through the door in need of  assistance, double Ihe figure  drawn from November.  "We're seeing an increase in  all our services," said Communily Services executive director,  Vicki Dobbyn, adding she  ~m\  mm  \lt-  mm  *1M  /  ��                     .aaaaaaaaj  4      ���>  >  1 ���  Food bank volunteer Juan Pratt checks fur daman* "r !*>���>*���'  stolen from the organisation's freezer.

All  across Ihe Coasl, people drawn I can think about is lhal they'd  from the Bart, where  Ihe recession is hitting harder, to the  Wesl where there is  a perceived notion of  safety and warmth.  "In reality, that is  often not the case  and these people  need a safely net  while they adjust  themselves and find  work."  Most people use  the bank only on a  temporary basis, said Dobbyn.  While Communily Services  exists mainly through provincial  grants, the food bank itself  operates solely on the generosity of individuals and businesses.

Most of these trees are going to take 80 to 100  years to grow anyway."  That feeling is shared by Dr. Paul Martiquet,  chief medical health officer for the Coasl Garibaldi  Health Unit.  "Any chemical lhal goes inio Ihe waler is a  concern to us ... Nitrates can contaminate water  and I don't like lo see high nitrate levels," she said.  In high concentrations, nitrates can cause gastrointestinal problems and have been associated  with stomach cancer.  During fertilizer trials in the Squamish water  shed, nitrate levels increased, bul still remained  well within acceptable heallh limits.  Bul Bob Weslin of Ihe heallh unil says site-specific risk assessment reports are slill needed for  areas where fertilizer is planned and that downstream waler users should be given a chance lo  respond.  Meanwhile the ministry has backed off from  immediate plans lo treat areas near Haslam Creek,  Carlson Lake, Treat Creek, Gray Creek, (lough  Creek, and the Tzoonie River.

McNicol, himself a recovering addict and  alcoholic, was instrumental in starling the  Port Mellon transition house a year ago, and  he continues to run il like a strict but caring  parent. He says he understands alcoholics  and the emotional needs of people like Jamie  and Andy and keeps only a few hard and fasl  rules. The clients keep up their end on daily  chores and indulge in absolutely no mind or  llil i  1  mood altering substances.  "I have shown people the door," McNicol  says of the firsl year of operation. "Guys  have been asked lo leave because Ihey didn't  follow the rules."

The program is based on the 12-slep  principles shared by Alcoholics Anonymous  and Narcotics Anonymous.  The centre is inspired, according to  McNicol, by other successful programs  around BC and focuses largely on getting the  men to accept their feelings and not label  everything as "anger."  "Men have a lot of feelings and emotions  Ihey are taught lo deny," McNicol said, "and  the road to recovery means they have to get  in touch with those feelings."  "ll can be very painful ...

OPENING SOON!  in Wilson Creek Plaza  GREK02forlPIZZA  Free Delivery from  Roberts Creek to Selma Park  885-032X  ���  Council gives library green  light for Holland Park expansion  ���: vr-  by Charles Hart  A referendum could be held  as early as spring to raise the  cash needed for a new Gibsons  and District Public Library.  The breakthough came last  week when Gibsons council  gave approval in principle for a  new library to be buill on a sile  in Holland Park, a decision  which hinged partly on resolving parkland issues in the  town's draft official communily  plan.  The library board favours a  localion in the south-east corner  of Holland Park, opposite Ihe  post office. A sile analysis  including soil testing, and feasibility study to determine building size, costs and parking, will  be carried oul lo ensure Ihe  location is suitable.  "Once we determine Ihe sile  and gel approval from Gibsons,  we will gel together wilh Ihe  town and areas E and F of Ihe  regional dislricl for a referendum," said building committee  chairman John Young.  He said a one-slorey building  of up lo 6,000 sq.ft. is planned,  and an application will be made  to Ihe provincial governmenl for  a grant to help with construction  costs.  Young said he could not eslimale whal Ihe price tag might  be until the studies are complete.  The existing library is woefully inadequate to serve Ihe  growing lower Coasl population  with volunteers now working  under crowded, uncomfortable  conditions and users finding it  increasingly difficult to access  books and magazines, Young  said.  "Now it's so busy il's  become a chore for volunteers,"  he said. "Il's just horrendous."  Judging from overwhelming  community support in 1989  when areas E and F joined in  helping pay for library operating  costs, Young said he is optimistic the new library plan will  receive strong public support  when the referendum is held.  "It's a bil of a motherhood  issue."  Gibsons Cllr. Ted Hume, the  town's representative on the  board, said he was pleased that  council has made a decision.  "They've been held back and  held back," he said of the  library plan. "We'd like to expedite it so they can get going."  1 * *. m  V     NEW     ^f  CHINA KITCHEN  RESTAURANT  RING IN THE  NEW YEAR!

Coast News, December 14, 1992  opinion  Paying the pros  for profiteering  It has become costly and fashionable for governments  at all levels to hire consultants to tell them what they  want to hear. The political expediency of such a course is  especially alluring, it seems, when the delicate matter of  salaries is on the agenda.  At least Gibsons council recently had the good grace to  appoint a volunteer committee composed of local citizens  when it decided to review pay rates for mayor and councillors. Other municipalities have cozied up to their  favourite consultants to draft the comprehensive, 'impartial' and publicly persuasive report for which they were  commissioned.  A fine example at the provincial level is Ihe review of  MLA remuneration currently being compiled by C.J.  Connaghan and Associates Ltd., of Vancouver. A final  report is expected in the next week or so, but the erudite  Mr. Connaghan found it expedient to send out press  releases in November to soften up the public for what's to  come. Naturally, that's part of the job description too.  The job of MLA in the province is a year-round,  seven-days-a-week undertaking requiring a commitment  of up to 65 hours a week, the consultant advises. Alas, he  has found that the perception of the public of what an  MLA does is far different from that forbidding reality.  "The necessity to schedule personal and family time  around the job demands often places a heavy toll on family life," Connaghan intones. Were that it were otherwise  in too many walks of life whose financial rewards and  perks pale in comparison to the benefits often accorded  those who wager a spell in public life.  Not to mention those plump little pension plans.  BC residents are about to hear in grisly detail how their  fearless representatives in the legislature are overworked,  underpaid and hence overdue for a new compensation  package that will keep people interested in running for  public office.  Not only that, but we'll pay for the privilege too- at  consultants' rates.  Towards a better way,  why not here and now?  A regular reader of our Page Four made the point in  conversation recently that it simply wouldn't be enough  to break the ties between the NDP and the trade unions if  one would reform the electoral scene in Canada.  Of course. All federal parties must be rescued from  obligation to sponsors, whether corporate or trade union.  With that cautionary proviso, our friend informed us  that not only could it be done but that it has been done. In  New Brunswick in 1975 then premier Richard Hatfield  began to find the demands of his own bagmen to be  insupportable.  Hatfield passed a law making political contributions  illegal and providing from the treasury $2 to the political  parties for every vote cast in the previous election.  If this stumbling provincial government of ours wants  to make its mark and maybe even win re-election, let it  follow Hatfield's lead.  Money would be apportioned to the NDP, the Liberals  and the Socreds based on their share of the popular vote  in the 1991 election.  It would be a giant step towards open and honest government and away from the pork barrel of political  favouritism. The electorate would be the winners.  Why not here? Why not now?  letters  Canada's greed, not  Mulroney to blame  Your latest Musings in the  Weekender prompted me to join  lhe fray.  I am one of the very few men  in Canada who believes our  Prime Minister is a very capable  leader. Considering that the  majority of other people in the  world agree with me, then any  thinking man, especially a journalist of great repute, would be  inclined to examine the Canadian people who are so critical.  We must judge any political  leader on the prestige and status  that he is able to maintain for  his country in the rest of the  world.  From any point of view,  Canada is close to the top: economic success, contributions to  the peace of the world, helping  less developed countries, actual  polidtical stability, level of education, and, perhaps most  important, the ability to innovate and produce products with  our industry that are competitive  and in demand in the world.  These days a country must  compete from within as well as  internationally. World trade is  the name of the game and unless  a country erects complete trade  barriers and tries to be self-sufficient, which is virtually impossible (contrary to the federal  NDP platform), then it must be  ready to compete in all world  markets including its own.  Looking into Canada from  without leads one to believe that  Canadians have very little to  complain about. My word to  those  snivelling,   whining,  hypercritical Canadians who  think that Canada is ahout to  collapse because Brian Mulroney is the worst leader in Ihe  world should Iry living in Somalia or South Africa or even  Yugoslavia.  They should try Russia for a  few years where the rale of  inflation has been 2000% and  unemployment over 207c.  If they are looking for something real lo complain about,  ihey should try the greatest  country in the world and lake up  residence in ihe hot section of  Los Angeles.  Our problem is lhal we have  been terribly misled by our  friend Pierre Trudeau. In order  to continue lo be re-elected he  developed a party platform of  universal social programs, lie  knew thai Canada could not  afford them, bul claimed lhat he  could pay for them with deficit  financing because inflation  would tend to wipe out this  debt,  Of course, al the same lime  he admitted that he knew very  little about economics or even  the business world. Mulroney  inherited not only the deficit but  Ihe universal social programs.  He attempted to cut back  where people could most afford  il and those Canadians raised  such a stink that he had to back  off. If Cauda is on the bubble  today wiih ils deficit, then don't  blame Mulroney, blame the selfish Canadians who wanted more  and more from iheir governmenl  and screamed to high heaven  when they found they had to  pay for it as well as iheir past  sins.

A Merry Christmas to all and  a best ever New Year.  SANDY MCBRIDF.  Rockwood Centre  Finding a winning play on the board game of life  There is no hope, these days, of climbing near  the top of the money tree just by doing your job  weU.  Crooks can do it, baseball players vault easily to  tbe top in their early '20s, and movie stars are  accustomed to the heights. But for your average  fellow, il's a long trail that winds and winds without much climbing.  This is particularly true as our governments and  banks work their magic on the coin of the realm. A  generation ago, I am told, you could buy a good  family home in Vancouver for $30,000. Today, an  'entry level' home for the young family will cost  you $250,000.  So we toil away, those of us lucky enough to  have jobs, running ever more madly to keep from  slipping backwards down the slippery slope.  It's enough to make even a lemming look for  new directions.  My friend in the city, Macdonnell, is in the process of house hunting these days, choking on the  entry level prices and fulminating on what is happening in his native province to the unpretentiously  locally bom seeking permanent shelter.  We turn our collars against the lashing rain of a  December day and decide to splash our way  through the broken flagstones and over the torrents  musings  john burnside  running in the gutter the several blocks between  ourselves and the nearest pub, rather than attempt  the near impossibility of finding parking anywhere  within five miles of the city centre.  The day fits our mood; the prospects look bleak  and trouble sure. As we splash our way to the chosen haven we turn over a few thoughts about what  we can do to improve the prospects.  "How about a board game," said Duncan. "I  really fancy one called 'Cut the Deficit'. I mean  it's going to be current for years to come and since  we can't deal with the real thing on any level we  could pretend to deal with it at home."  "I was thinking about a board game called 'Butt  Out'," I said wistfully. Duncan had just paused in  the lee of a building and lit up a Players Light. I  had conscientiously refrained from joining him  since I was yet again on a regime of planned withdrawal. A new approach, a new hope.  "I mean it could be a beauty. Heroic resolve,  much backsliding, shocking hazards, monstrous  lax increases threatening economic well being. It's  got everything, Duncan. Real problems, real  rewards, real dangers. I mean il would sell."  Duncan took a deep and, what seemed to me,  satisfying drag at his cigarette and squinted  through the smoke at me sideways.  "It will never sell," he said. "C'mon, are you  going to dish out cards thai say 'You have lung  cancer. Leave the game' and sell il as home entertainment? How about: 'You have developed  emphysema. From now until the game ends divide  all dice rolls by two and move at half speed. In the  case of penalty cards incurred you must double the  penalty.' I can see you sitting al home alone with  your board game, buddy."  "Maybe we could sell it to the Third World, like  all the rest of the poisonous junk we can't use. Did  you see where Thailand was forced to allow the  sale of American cigarettes by the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade? Apparently it's all in  the interest of free trade. Thanks to GATT, Duncan, we're going to have a market in Asia for the  foreseeable future for Butl Out. I tell you it can be  a winner. It's the Snakes and Ladders for the '90s."  "Well, we can give it a shot, if you insist," said  Duncan, "but I do believe the market to be limited  and dwindling. I find precious little empathy  among non-smokers for the smoker's problems  and doubl they can be persuaded to play a board  game about expected agonies. We are, as they say,  an endangered species.  "On the other hand, take my idea of a game  called 'Cul lhe Deficit'. It's very fashionable.  Everybody wants to do it but at no expense to  themselves, ll sets up an insuperable obstacle and  endless rivalries as the corporations, ihe banks, ihe  trade unions, the politicians - everybody schemes  to cut Ihe deficit at somebody else's expense.  "Think about it. You could have a card thai  fired the Minister of Finance for incompetence and  denied him Unemployment Insurance for just  cause dismissal. On a lucky night you could gel the  whole Tory cabinet sleeping under bridges."  "Only one problem I can see," I said. "How  would the game ever end?"  "That is the problem," agreed Duncan. He  flicked his cigarette butt into one of the many  available puddles and we went into the pub to pay  some more taxes.

These are questions thai we  might Dot ordinarily bother lo  ask, and even if ihe answers  were known, we might well  reply, or snap back - "so what?"  Nonetheless I have been  reading a series of reports and  reviews of the Moscow stage in  ihose years and while 1 was  reading them, almost by accident (because I wanted short  ihings. amusingly written, thai  could be jusl picked up and put  down) slill ii grew on mc lhal  these were of special interest,  and lhal somehow, somewhere  they had something to say about  Ihe changing face of Christmas  in our lime.  The reviews are by Kenneth  Tynan, a leading London critic  back then who also wrote regularly for the New Yorker; before  doing Ihis series he had never  been lo Moscow and possibly  no other western theatre observer had either. Tynan al least  arrived with a mass of misconceptions.  He was surprised to begin  wilh by Ihe sheer number of theatres regularly producing every  night around Ihe calendar. Ihere  were 32. Some of these were  devoted to ballet, opera, light  opera and ihree produced entirely plays for children.  This still left 21 continuously  operating houses producing  legitimate theatre. Anyway you  looked al il there had to be variety here, and il was a variety he  hadn't expected lo find in the  Russian Stale.  Then it was the organization  of all these theatres lhat struck  him. He had expected a theatre  that was slate organized and  slate subsidized and state directed and censored, heavily orient-  yachako rajw  dSgcV/ Rowers & Herbs       *' JL  **f in White Wine Vinegar ��'���  Chutney       Pepper Jetty  Gourmet Honey  in a nutshell  ��� Nasturtium ��� Rosemary       ���Apricot ��� Hot Yellow  ��� Ltvendei   ��� Cwkma    ��� l'lum lYprxr ��� Sweet Yellow  ��� Spearmint   ��� Anise ��� lalapeno  DEUVERY AVAHABIl " Swwt Ktd  Roberts Crs-ok ��� 886-7859  ed to doctrinaire ideology. This  was, he found, an old-fashioned  notion. Since 1948 only Iwo of  all these theatres had been slate  subsidized. How in the world  then did all these others make  out?  When Tynan began to look  into lhe theatres themselves this  question became harder and  harder lo answer. They were  individual 'slock' companies,  lhat is, they had Iheir own continuing pool of actors from  which they drew lo cast the various plays in their repertoire and  since ihey only mounted a play  for two nights at a time, their  repertoires were extensive.  Every theatre maintained a  permanent company of between  80 and 150 actors. This, Tynan  thought, 'seemed unbelievable'  in view of ihe 'splendour of lhe  productions.'  Tynan had got there in Ihe  first place in the wake of the  first British production to be  invited lo play in Russia since  the revolution. It was, its producer said, Ihe mosi expensive  production of Hamlet he had  ever produced. In Moscow they  were surprised thai it had only  one sel and many actors played  more than one part. 'Cost-cut-  ling' ihey had to be told and  ihey couldn't believe it.  How did they do it then?  Well of course, Ihey paid no  renl and then Ihey paid no entertainment lax, bul mainly the  answer was lhal Ihey commonly  played throughout the year to 95  per cent of capacity.  letters  Canada Post  changes appalling  An "Across the Miles"  response lo Ihe recent article in  Coast News concerning the sorting of Sunshine Coast mail in  Vancouver. We are quite baffled  and somewhat appalled to discover this is the decision made  by our illustrious Canada Post.  In fact, it is the most insane  decision we have heard in some  time!  The Post Offices in Sechell,  Gibsons and other town do a far  superior job to thai of a large  city sorting facility and they  also provide much needed  , employment to the residents in  lhe various locations.  On a personal note, this also  explains why our copy of the  Coast News faithfully mailed  from your offices takes anywhere from four days lo Ihree  weeks to arrive. To us it has  become a game of chance wondering if il will arrive for good  weekend reading or do we catch  up on the local news two weeks  later!

A little bit of astronomy  thrown in for good measure  wilh particular reference to  comets and so called heavenly  bodies and of course Ihe big  bang theory were all given their  share of Ihe six two-hour periods.

I was possibly six and I played a  firefly. It was noi a 'splendid  production' bul it was fun and il  was based on Ihe truly splendid  productions of the annual  Christmas pantomimes in London: Dick Whittington, Aladdin,  Cinderella, etc.  In their way classics, as most  of the productions in Moscow  when Tynan was there were  also the classics, done up to lire  nines as richly ordered spectacles (mind you (he acting was  also splendid.)  The lime we are talking  about was something more than  30 years after Ihe revolution. A  strong move had been made to  wipe out religious practices.

"The  best in town," she said.  The crowded restaurant certainly supported her recommendation, and our breakfast  proved it. Whal a surprise to  find the enterprise was part of  Ihe Princeton Community Services Society's range of programs. The Mini Chef provides  not only work experience bul  employment for "developmen-  tally impaired and disabled  people," providing work Ihey  are not able lo gel elsewhere.  When we were ihere we  were (old there were 12  trainees on staff along with six  to eight other persons of experience in restaurant service.  From Ihe society's information  leaflets we learned 'delegations  from all over the province visit  the Princeton programs' and 'a  current waiting list for this  work experience testifies lo the  need for similar programs elsewhere.'  "The trainees are real  employees," the friendly waitress told us, "paid wages and  expected to produce good service." All this grew oul of Ihe  society's meals on wheels program. All profits go into district communily services.  Langdale  The school is selling Chrislmas coupon books which offer  hundreds of dollars of savings  al local Landing businesses and  services.

I wanted  to rush up the hill to my house,  phone my daughter in Saskatoon and shout, "Get out here,  right away! I want to show you  something really special, you  musn't miss it." But as a mature  adull, I waited and merely  described il to her in our Sunday phone call. Even in the  measured tones of an adult to  her grown daughter, she was  sorry to have missed it. Now  she lives in Vancouver and  knows too the beauty of carol  ships.  Bonfire party  Here in Sunshine Heights on  the west side of the inlet our  community builds a huge bonfire down at the marina. The  children race around, roast hot  dogs and marshmallows and the  adults chat until the carol ships  come. Then we all sing together  and clap and shout. All along  the inlet on both sides from  Tuwanek and Sandy Hook to  Porpoise Bay people gather, to  take part in this Christmas  magic.  You can be on shore or you  can be in one of Ihe carol ships.  Tickets to sail are only $5 with  proceeds going to Si. Mary's  Hospital. They can be purchased at Talewind Books or  Sew Easy. The ships load at  4:30 pm at the Tyee Air dock  and leave at 5 pm sharp. The  schedule is strict because of the  tides. The ships will return to  dock at approximately 7 pm.  They will sail up the east side of  the inlet and return on the wesl  side. It's a Coast Christmas specially.

Changes  It is interesting to note thai,  while there have been many  changes in Hallmoon Hay din  ing lhe pasl 20 years, there, are  still some traditions which cany  on much the same as before.  Take for instance, the annual  Christmas Dinner nighl al Welcome Beach Hall.  20 years ago  In 1972 it was Mary Tinkley,  now Mary Shannon, who wrote  the Halfmoon Hay Happenings  column, and here are a few  excerpts from the Dec. 13, 1972  column.  Some of the people mentioned are still with us while  others left some lime ago. President at lhal time was Alex Ellis  who welcomed the guests and  introduced the entertainment,  which included piano duels by  Blanche McCrady and Ruby  Hatcher, recitations by Olive  Cleiir, carols led by a choir comprising Francis Cook, Marj  Morgan and Jean Laird. One of  the carols sung was The Chrislmas Story, written and composed by Fritz Leucine, accompanied by Thea Leucine.  Happy memories will certainly be brought back to those  who knew and who still know  some of the people mentioned.  Nexl week I shall be writing  aboul this year's Welcome  Beach Christmas social and  there won't be much change in  the type of activities and entertainment.

Some folks value their lives too  much for that baloney.  by Joyce Ostry  One approaches the new Senior Cenlre and  finds a cream coloured structure with a light green  accenting the outer building. The purpose on Dec.  10 of my visit was the annual Christmas dinnei  served in Ihe new cenlre which is now llie one and  only seniors building in Sechelt.  As 1 was wheeled in. it struck mc that this was  a pleasant place to be with the outside decor carried tastefully indoors with light green walls that  had a feeling of warmth rather than the coolness  associated with greens. The vestibule was easy  with couch and chairs, lending a nice backdrop for  plants and the place of honour kept for the Christmas tree. The organ, bequeathed from Bva liar-  wood to Rcnee Crowe, was donated by Rene to  the hall, ll complements lhe other decor.  President Len Herder paid tribute lo John and  Patti Miller for John's work on the cenlre and for  Patli waiting for John to conic home.  The dinner was great and many expressed their  pleasure for the good meal thai il was. Marlene  Williams was honoured on her 94th birthday.  The acoustical light on the ceiling and ventilation ducts create a most pleasurable place lor  sound, probably the besl hall for sound on the  Coast. There are ample washrooms and the disabled washrooms have easy handles and there are  no spring locks on the doors. They are equipped  with high stools for easy transfer and minors are  sel lower than usual.  After dinner, a number of people enjoyed dancing and visiting during this festive time.  Installation is Thursday, Dec. 17 at Ihe regular  time of 1:30 pm. There will not be crafts or pompoms until after Jan. 5.  Tickets for New Year's can be bought from  I ��ii Herder and or Larry Grafton.

As  it sits on the wire, the bird's  weight stretches the tendons so  that the loos flex, move forward and lock around the wire.

The collection of oil paintings offer a curious blend of  blight blooming flowers and  destructive, desolate landscapes  of lire Not coincidenlally Ihe  show is called 'Fire and Flowers.' by Vancouver artist Veronica I'lewman.  The blend of Ihe two forces -  destruction and growth - is gradual, (ireeling the viewer at the  door are Iwo very opposing  works: Burning Dock (l��.l)2),  depicting brilliant orange flames  amid the darkness of nighl,  reflected on black water; topped  by Flower Blossoms in Black  (1991), delicate pink blooms  and new green leaves on black.  Hut a crossing-over of the  dementi begin* to take place as  is most evident in the work Ked  Peonies (l'W2), where Ihe flowers flame in colours red and  orange and in Fire Garden  (1992), where again flowers are  engulfed in fiery blossoms.  The mix is less obvious in  some works, in particular Early  tiarden (1992), where Ihe painling depicts a garden, lush and  green, yel overgrown with  brambles.  The beauty is obvious, Ihe  element of destruction sublle.  it was a natural progression  Oil the part of lhe artist. I'lewman explained when she first  began planning for Ihe show Ihe  Iwo themes were distinct - "fire"  and "flowers".  "Since then the challenge I  have set for myself is to dovetail  these Iwo themes into Ihe same  painling," Plewman wrote in  explanation of her work.  The evidence of her explo  ration is mosi evident in bolh  Fire Garden and Farly Garden.  Plewman called them Ihe beginning depiction of an imaginary  place where growth and destruction happen simultaneously.  "It's also a place which contains the four poetic elements,  earth, air, fire and waler," she  explained.  "It has a cenlre, and from that  cenlre can come Ihe explorations in painl that arc like the  spokes of a wheel or the petals  of a flower: when Ihey reach the  perimeter of the Garden, ihey  return lo Ihe centre.  Il's also a place which tries to  hold in balance the dark and  light sides of the mythological  feminine, and in that it is a  metaphor for our own bodies."  Fire and Flowers will be  exhibited at the Arts Centre until  Dec. 20.  Recollections of life in mftcamp country  TERMINAL  Forest Products Ltd.  LOG  BUYING  STATION  Camp Run  CEDAR -HR - HEMLOCK  886-7033  bv Peter Trower  Raincoast Chronicles has come a long way appearance-wise since  Ihose old sepia issues back in Ihe 70s. The brown ink had a certain  folksy charm but it was a lad drab; for all lhat the magazine has  brightened up considerably over Ihe years. Black ink has long since  replaced Ihe sepia and full colour covers on heavy stock  are now exclusively used.    The latest issue, number 14, features an excellent  painting by West Coast writer Jim Spillsbury, a man of  many accomplishments.  Spillsbury's painling depicts an old-lime float camp -  appropriately enough since this is lhe issue's theme.  Chronicles number 14 breaks wiih tradition in thai it  is devoted to the memoirs of a single writer, Florence  Tickner. Frankly I prefer the intriguing mix of different  voices the magazine has always presented up lo now.  Nonetheless Tiekner's reminiscences Fish Hooks and *~���~������  Caulk Boots are very much worth reading.  They present a unique picture of life as it appeared to a young girl  growing up in Ihe floating logging camps of the 30s.  Florence Tickner takes us back lo a simpler world now almosl  totally lost - a world of gyppo loggers and their families scattered  among Ihe myriad islands, channels and hidden harbours of the  Knight Inlet country. In her account, logging is strictly a background  activity, vital lo the lives of the raftcamp dwellers, but never directly  glimpsed.

Wilson Creek. 885-4136  The emphasis here is on Ihe more domestic aspects of life in a  floating universe - Ihe human side of the woods beyond the sawdust,  Ihe sidehills and Ihe sweat Loggers, Florence Tickner assures us, may  have cursed a blue streak in the bush but most of them were polite and  clean-spoken around women and kids.  The author tells her story in a series of short chapters         - only intermittently chronological. Each chapter deals  wilh a specific theme. Some recall places such as Minstrel Island, Port Elizabeth, Fraser Creek and Alert Bay.  Others concentrate on characters - Bullcook, John  Minoff, Fd Mclean, Uncle Owen, Mrs. Barberie and of  course, Tiekner's own parents, Ed and Mabel Kimball.  One chapter deals with the Union Steamships, Ihe  lifelines of the Coasl in Ihose poor-but-happy limes. The  writer recalls occasional trips to Vancouver with her  parents, sisters and brother when they could only afford       one stateroom. Mrs. Kimball and the four children *  would use the cabin at night while Ed Kimball played  poker. In the morning Ihe stateroom was turned over lo the weary  gambler.  It is hard lo convey the sheer charm and magic of these colourful  memoirs. Florence Tickner lakes us on long gone picnics and fishing  trips when BC was a much less complicated place. She brings her  girlhood to life in simple vivid images.  I might add lhal these recollections stir nostalgic memories of my  own. I worked the same area in 1950, nine years after Florence and  her family lefl lo settle in Gibsons. I stayed at a float camp run by  Harry Mann and Dan Levesque, sons of two of the families she mentions. Part of the camp complex included the very house Florence  Tickner once called home, sold lo Ihe Manns in 1941.  Things, for me, weren't quite as idyllic as she describes them, but  Ihey certainly had their moments.  Daring  Mark Twain's  days as a newspaperman,  he was editor of a small  Missouri paper. One day he  received a letter from a  subscriber, stating that he  had found a spider in his  paper, and asked if this  was an omen of good or  bad lock.  Twain replied: "Finding a spider in your paper is  neither good nor bad luck The spider was merely  looking over our paper to see which merchant was  not advertising so that he could go to that store,  spin his web across the door, and lead a life of  undisturbed peace ever afterward."  To keep the spiders at bay, advertise in the  COAST NEWS  and  COAST NEWS  WEEKENDER  886-2622   ���   885-3930  ���'..-.. -  _ ���   ���  ;       ��� ��� ��� �������� .  t .  ������ ���  ':**���.- .;;;-" .-,:  ' �� . Coast News, December 14,   1992        13  Cooperation within fisheries discussed  by Jane Seyd  With the aftermath of last summer's  native fishery on Ihe Fraser River still settling in the fishing communily, bolh native  and non-native fishermen on the Coasl are  now organizing groups which Ihey hope will  work together in the future to manage the  salmon resource.  But whether the groups' ideas about what  should be done are compatible remains to be  seen.  Recently, a coalition of commercial fishermen from Gibsons lo Pender Harbour was  formed lo discuss concerns aboul re-allocation of salmon into a separale native fishery.  Among many locals, "there's a real concern and fear lhat Ihere won't be room for  commercial fishermen" in the new system  developing between native groups and governmenl, says Russell Cameron, president  of Ihe local Uniled Fishermen and Allied  Workers Union in Pender Harbour.  Cameron says commercial fishermen  don'l necessarily object lo greater native  involvement in the fishery, but Ihey do  object lo being fro/en oul of the negotiation  process as major players.  "Everything that's happened so far,  there's not been much input from commercial fishing industry," says Cameron.  "We want to know what's going on and  to be involved so we can have a solution  lhat fishermen can live with."  For example, Cameron cites the Nishga's  comprehensive land claim settlement under  negotiation, which involves Ihe fishery on  Ihe Nass River: "Nobody knows whal the  fishery will involve."  Most commercial fishermen "accept lhal  there is a native food fishery right and there  should be some consideration given," says  Cameron. But the problem is "there are now  two commercial fisheries happening with  two regulators."  That results in a clash of jurisdictions and  uncertainty over enforcement which is ultimately detrimental to Ihe resource, says  Cameron, noting thai some native bands further up the Fraser River didn't get enough  salmon for food fish this year: "There are  real problems wilh the way il's going."  The new coalition favours more licenses  for natives within the existing commercial  fleet, says Cameron.  Meanwhile, fishermen in the Sechelt  Indian Band say they'd like to develop a  local native co-managemenl of Ihe fishery,  bul they wanl the commercial fishermen to  be involved.  Calvin Craigan, a native fishermen, is the  chairman of a new fisheries commission  established by the Sechelt band to come up  with strategies for co-managemenl of traditional waters with the Departmenl of Fisheries.  Craigan says the band's proposals  include salmon enhancement, monitoring  and enforcing of regulations and co-opera-  live marketing of the calch by band fishermen. A band commission would also oversee catches of food fish.  Says Craigan. "We don't categorize ourselves as commercial or otherwise."  Craigan says there's still lots of room for  commercial fishermen in Ihis scenario. And  he sees Ihe roles of Fisheries and a band  commission as complementary. "There's a  real lack of patrolling right now," says  Craigan. "They need more resource people  out there."  In future, says Craigan, il will be necessary for native, commercial and sporls fishermen lo work together: "That is the real  inlent of Ihe band."  Like public involvement in forestry and  environmental issues, "We in the local communities have lo work together," says  Craigan. "We can't depend on governments.  We have to lake responsibility."  A meeting between commercial fishermen, economic development officer Bill  Moore and Craigan is scheduled for this  week.  SCRD chairwoman Peggy Connor signs a letter on behalf of postcards will be sent to "Prisoners of Conscience" chosen by AI.  Amnesty International (Al).   Hers and other letters and Keith Thirkell photo  Amnesty write-a-thon proves drawing card  by Keith Thirkell  The pens were flying in Trail Bay Mall Thursday, Human Rights  Day, where Ihe local Amnesty International group held it's annual  wrile-a-thon (December 10 is the anniversary of the International declaration of human rights).  People passing by Ihe two tables set up by Amnesty were asked to  either write letters or postcards lo prisoners of conscience . Shirley  Hall, the group's chair, said, "Letters are usually more effective  because Ihey are more personal and tend to get more respect." The  postcards are written by Amnesty head office, then supporters just  add their name and a stamp.  Writers could choose from a long list of countries where human  rights violations are often the norm.  Bul Ihe main emphasis of Ihe write-a-thon was to focus on what  the U.N. has dubbed the International Year of Indigenous Peoples.  Thursday was also the day Guatemalan peasant Rigoberta Menchu  was officially awarded the Noble Peace Prize, and the accompanying  cheque for $1.5 million.  Prime Minister Mulroney has been criticized for refusing lo meet  with Menchu, supposedly because Canada has huge mining and other  economic interests in Guatemala. (Mulroney also refused to meel  with the Dhali Lama, the leader in exile of Tibet, allegedly for similar  reasons).  Two of the more notable pen swingers were Nancy McLarly,  mayor of Sechelt, and Peggy Connor, SCRD director. They bolh  wrote letters which were immediately sealed and taken lo the post  office. People were also asked to make donations to the stamp fund,  which represents a sizable portion of the local Amnesty budgei.  New provincial burning law sparks concern  by Jane Seyd  The provincial Ministry of  Environment says it's cracking  down on smoke from land-clearing fires, with strict new regulations about just whal, when and  how much can be burnt on private property.  Under a new law, already in  effect, only very small fires will  be allowed without an environmenlal permit.  To burn larger amounts of  debris, including stumps - even  for an average residential lol  clearing - contractors will need  permission from Ihe wasle management branch.  But exactly how Ihose rules  will be administered and  enforced, and whal sort of alternatives are available lo local  contractors, hasn't been figured  out by the ministry.  That hasn't made Ihe local  fire chief happy. "I'd be real  interested to see how they're  going to enforce it," says Bill  Higgs. "Rules are great;  enforcement is another matter."  Under Ihe new rules, fires  without environmental permits  are only allowed if the burn pile  is not more than 10 cubic melres  per hectare of land per month.  The Fire must also be on land  which the wood was cleared  from, and not last more than 24  hours.  The idea is lo encourage use  of salvageable limber, and composting or chipping of other  debris. Il's also meant to reduce  problems of large smoky fires in  close proximity to existing residential areas, says Ramdin.  To get approval for larger  fires, it will cost contractors  $100 and take between two  weeks to a month for ministry  paperwork.  Penalties for not complying  with the law include an instant  $200 ticket, followed by possible court proceedings and further fines later.  But whether the new law will  be fairly applied is another  question.  "It's kind of an awkward situation," says Ramdin. While  environmental inspectors and  conservation officers will likely  be charged wilh enforcing the  regulations, "we don't have the  staff to monitor every localion."  Meanwhile Higgs says, "I  won't be enforcing their rules.  That's not going to happen."  Higgs says he's not pleased  the law came through without  consultation with developers or  fire chiefs.  So far, there are no industrial  slump grinders on the Sunshine  Coast, and ministry spokesman  Rick Williams says thai will be  up to private business lo bring in  because, "we don'l have the  money."  Meanwhile, Higgs says he's  concerned the new law will lead  to debris drying oul in large  piles, or being dumped in the  bush where it could become a  fire risk in hot weather: "Then it  becomes my business in a big  way."

Hank Unas of the Ministry of  lands and Forests, told the  meeting lhat changes had been  made in the processing of aquaculture leases ever since Ihe  report by the Gillespie Commission had been released in 1985.  10 YEARS AGO  Brookman Park is in serious  jeopardy.  If the creek cannot be directed away from Ihe park soon, it  appears that approximately 40  percent of the park will be  claimed by the creek. Explaining recent bank slippage, Jon  McRae requested SCRD assistance in obtaining provincial  government assistance lo rectify  the problem.  15 YEARS AGO  Secretary treasurer of School  Dislricl 46 informed school  Iruslees that an adjustment in  taxation procedures by the  Social Credit government would  mean a significant increase in  the proportion of school taxes  borne by local taxpayers. The  increase could be as much as 23  .^percent.  20 YEARS AGO  The newly elected presidenl  of Local 297 UPIU has called  on all citizens of Ihe Sunshine  Coasl lo wholeheartedly support  the United Farm Workers Union  in its battle lo guarantee a  decent standard of living to California farm workers.  To this end, local 297 has  requested CFP to stop serving  lettuce at Ihe Seaside Dining  Room.  25 YEARS AGO  Juveniles of lender years  have been blamed for a series of  break-ins in Gower Point Road  police notes  On Nov. 30, a Sechelt resident in the 5000 block Highway  101 reported a residenlial  break-in. A large quantity of  stereo equipment, furs, jewelry  and miscellaneous items were  stolen with an approximate  value of $30,000.  Investigation by the Sechelt  Detachment of the RCMP has  resulted in two Vancouver residents being charged wilh break,  enter and theft.

Warrants have been  issued for Iheir arrest and anyone wilh information is asked  lo call Ihe Sechelt RCMP or  Crimestoppers.  Rummer cottages.

Both councils  arc in favour.  35 YEARS AGO  Expenditures in lhe region of  $3,000 for fire equipment were  discussed by (iibsons Village  Commission. Some commissioners wondered why so much  was needed al Ihis lime. The  money is needed for hoses, tools  and breathing sets.  40 YEARS AGO  A search parly slowed by  high winds and heavy rains, cut  ils way thiough Ihe woods to a  spot a quarter of a mile from  Crowston Lake, four miles from  Halfmoon Kay, to icach Ihe  wrecked plane of Queen Charlotte Airlines.  45 YEARS AGO  A 17 year old Vancouver girl  was given permission by the  court to marry a 22 year old  fisherman from Fender Harbour.

Foi example a petson who  stipulates 'No Children' as a  condition ol rental would be in  violation ol the Family Status  and the Human Rights Acts. The  landlord who places the advertisement and Ihe newspaper  which publishes II would bolh be  in contravention ol the legislation and could have a complaint  Hied against Ihem. The Coast  News will therefore not accept  such discriminatory ads.  VOLUNTEERS  NEEDED  Get in the Christmas  spirit!

The PHVPD's juniors program is beginning to pay big  dividends. Colin Fenn and Andy  Curtis are among the crew.  Both are 17 and Ihis is Iheir  first structure fire. It provides  Ihe hands-on experience Ihey  will need in the future. They  have just finished their 50-hour  training program, which is  directed by instructor Darren  Reid.  Bolh Curlis and Fenn are  trained in the use of Scott air  packs, basic aulo extrication,  CPR, first aid and ladder work.  Curlis and Penn joined Ihe  program in September wilh six  other volunteers. "I joined mostly for the experience," said  Fenn. "You know if something  happens, I'd like to know what  to do lo help." Curtis had more  traditional reasons for joining.  "I've always admired my father,  who has been a firefighler for  years. I guess I'd like lo follow  in his footsteps...and I think it's  a good way to help my communily." Curtis and Fenn both feel  lhat their training has helped  Ihem grow in both community  and personal responsibility.  Helping Iheir community is  also high on the agenda for  Jolaine Percival and Sarah Beadle, Garden Bay's newest firefighter recruits.  Percival and Beadle,  involved in Students Against  Drunk Driving and swimming  programs at the aquatic cenlre,  both saw firefighting as a way  to make a difference in their  community.  Beadle, whose small frame  made finding appropriate-sized  turnout gear somewhat difficult,  was surprised by her acceptance  in the junior firefighters program.  "Five people applied and  some of Ihe others were a lol  bigger than I am. There are  some things thai because of my  size I don't think I'll be able lo  do, bul Ihey lell us if you don'l  feel confident doing something  oul there, don't do il. Ihere isn't  any discrimination there, and  the crew really made us feel like  we are a part of the team. They  are really great."  "There is so much lo learn,"  added Percival. "How you go  into a fire, how lo hook up Ihe  hoses and use the equipment. I  think Ihe experience of firefighting will change my attitude  towards life.  "You have lo really look at  what you're doing and noi take  things for granted. I think serving your community is one of  the best experiences. We really  want to thank the fire department for their support and this  opportunity."  Beadle and Percival will be  attending training sessions  which are similar to those just  completed by Curtis and Fenn.  All junior members go through  a six-month probationary period  after their training, which  includes practice bums such as  the one Tuesday night.  By morning all lhat remains  of Ihe former alternate school is  a smoldering foundation and the  memories of experience.
