Over Cheekeye-Dunsmuir  Legal battle with Hydro begins  The battle between B.C. Hydro and the Cheekye-Dunsmuir  Alliance began on the legal front last week when a Supreme Court  Trial was convened on November 17.  The first two days were taken up with legal and procedural  technicalities and the legal battle is expected to get under way in  earnest on December 17.  Chief defendant is Carl Rising-Moore of Powell River who  defied a court injunction against the removal of survey posts on  Texada Island which marked the location of an access road to the  giant power line which Hydra flans to contract between the  mainland and Vancouver Island.  Other defendants were charged with actions defying the court  injunction against delaying the project. These actions were taken  by individuals standing before the bulldozer clearing the land for  the access road. One of these defendants is Iris Griffiths of  Egmont.  Griffiths told the Coast News that the defence for herself and  the other defendants who blocked the bulldozer will be that court  injunctions against Rising-Moore's trial it is hoped that B.C.  Hydro will be forced to justify construction of the giant power  line, something which members of the Cheekeye-Dunsmuir  Alliance says has not happened heretofore.  During the debate which has raged between the Alliance and  Hydry for several years several independent experts have come  forward and questioned the need for the power line but Hydro  officials have been adament that it is required. A campaign  conducted by Hydro on Vancouver Island had newspaper  advertising predicting brown-outs on the Island in the near future.  Defendants in the upcoming trial are being defended by Peter  Leask who teaches Civil Law at UBC and who has an interest in  environmental matters.  Iris Griffiths told the Coast News that those who wished to  contribute to the Cheekye-Dunsmuir Alliance Defence Fund to  help defray the Alliance's expenses should mail their contritutions  to the Cheekye-Dunsmuir Legal Defence Fund, Account #18183,  Powell River Credit Union, 6239 Walnut Street, Powell River,  B.C.  Iris Griffiths of Egmont stands before a bulldozer preparing an access road on Texada Island for the Cheekeye-Dunsmuir power  line. The Supreme Court trial opened last week with some technical argument and will continue in December. Griffiths is just one  of several defendants charged with disobeying court injunctions against delaying the construction of the power line.  Parks action urged immediately  by John Moore  "If you're going to do anything about parks, you've got to do it  now."  The speaker was Stuart Lefeaux, hired by the regional board  last September as Recreation Consultant for the Sunshine Coast.  Lefeaux, now retired and living in the Redrooffs area after a long  and distinguished career in parks management and development  with the Vancouver Parks Baord, has been inspecting local parks  and meeting with Area Directors and Advisory Planning  Commissions, and recently he gave regional board directors a  brief interim verbal report.  Lefeaux spoke ofthe Sunshine Coast's "fantastic potential" for  parks and recreation facilities and told the directors their first  priority should be to "get a hold of some waterfronts" and  preserve them for public use.  Lefeaux recommended the board establish a reserve Parks  Purchase Fund to enable the board to buy pieces of property now  in private hands, if and when they are offered for sale.  He suggested, in general terms, a number of broad ways and  means by which such a fund could be established: I) increased  taxation in the form of an increase in the mil rate, 2) by the  regional board going into the subdivision and land sale business,  using the profits therefrom to establish the fund, 3) by making use  of the provision under the Municipal Act which allows the board  to accept cash in lieu of land dedications from subdivision  developers, 4) by floating a bond issue, 5) by exchange of lands  owned by the board or donated by the province for lands more  suitable or desirable for parks.  As though to underscore Lefeaux's report, board Chairman  David Hunter reported at the same meeting that the board's  attempt to acquire land at the mouth of Roberts Creek for a park  had met with a slight hitch. Hunter said that the current owner's  agent, Pat Murphy of Wharf Realty Ltd., had informed him that  the owner would require "a substantial non-refundable deposit"  in order to hold the land until the board can arrange financing.  Area D Director Harry Almond had recommended the board  finance the purchase of the land by selling off a number of Crown  lots on Crowe Road. Hunter said he did not feel he could offer  such a deposit and the board is still waiting for word from Victoria  to authorize the sale.  Almond also recommended the board consider rezoning the  areas around the summer camps in Roberts Creek in order to  prevent the prime waterfront land from being subdivided.  The board also referred to Area A Director Joe Harrison's  Water Lot Lease Committee a request from the Area B  Ratepayer's Association that a Community Foreshore and Water  Lease be issued for the waterfront area and boat launching area at  Coopers Green in order to "ensure its retention as a public area".  Stuart Lefeaux's complete report on parks and recreation on  the Sunshine Coast will be presented to the board early in the new  year.  Incidents over the past month have set the rumour mills in  Sechelt into high gear. They have told of rapes, molestation, and  young people being chased late at night. A 'Special Notice' in one  retail store warm parents that "Two young boys were  chased /attacked by a big man with a knife," and asks parents to  keep their children home at night.  In a calmer vein, Brian Butcher, the principal at the Sechelt  Elementary School sent a form letter to parents, dated November  18th.  "Dear Parents:  "The police have had three reports about children being chased  by an unidentified person. We are not sure how much of it is real  or imagined, but we are concerned enough to let you know.  "Please make sure your children are not out at night alone until  this is cleared up. The R.C.M.P. talked to the younger children  today about safety, strangers approaching them etc.  "We would appreciate it if you would talk to your children is,  and if there is any further information we will let you know."  Cpl. G. R. Wade ofthe Sechelt RCMP confirmed that his office  had three reports on file, but added that the rumours were out of  proportion.  The first report was on November I when a 14-year old Sechelt  girl phoned the police to tell them that she had been walking to her  home on the waterfront section of the Indian Land at 10:00 pm.  when a man in dark clothing had jumped out ofthe bushes near  the hospital and tried to grab her. She escaped and ran home.  On November 14, Sechelt police received another complaint  involving the same girl. The second incident was reported to have  happened near the Bowling Alley. On this occasion the girl's socks  and shoes are said to have been removed and used to tie her feet  and gag her. She escaped on this occasion also and was found  beside her home. She was taken to St. Mary's Hospital, where an  examination found no physical ill effects.  On November 1S, two 15 year old boys reported that they were  grabbed by a man at 11:45 pm. in the Porpoise Bay part ofthe  Indian Land. They pulled free and escaped.  Sailings cancelled  The B.C. Ferry Corporation wishes it noted that the  8:30 am. ferry sailing from Horseshoe Bay and the 9:30  am. sailing from Langdale will not take place on  Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday of this  week, November 26 - 29.  The withdrawal of the service is caused by the fact  that the Queen of Nanaimo which is used on the run is  going in to drydock for servicing.  ^ ^  Fares are raised  on B.C. ferries  Many passengers were surprised to find themselves digging into  their pockets for more money when they entered the toll booths at  the Horseshoe Bay Ferry Terminal. With very little publicity, the  fares were increased, effective November IS.  For residents on both ends of the Sunshine Coast this means  that they will now be paying $1.00 morefor the driver ofa vehicle,  50c for each passenger and 25c for each child under 11 years of  age.  A more detailed breakdown of the new fate structure reads as  follows:  Passenger Vehicle Underheight, inc. Driver $14.50  Passenger Vehicle Overheight, inc. Driver 14.50  Underheight Extra Feet 1.25  Motorcycle, inc. Driver 8.50  Passenger Vehicle, Res., Underheight, inc. Driver 12.50  Passenger Vehicle, Res., Overheight, inc. Driver 12.50  Motorcycle Resident, inc. Driver 7.00  Trailer Underheight 11.00  Trailer Underheight 11.00  Trailer Resident Underheight 10.00  Trailer Resident Overheight 10.00  Commercial Vehicle Per Foot 1.60  Adult Passenger 3.50  Half Fare Passenger 1.75  Truck Driver 3.50  Party Rate Adult Passenger 2.80  Party Rate Half Fare Passenger 1.40  Adult Passenger Resident 2.50  Half Fare Passenger Resident 1.25  Adult Passenger - Off Peak 2.50  Half Fare Passenger - Off Peak 1.25  Party Rate Adult Passenger ��� Off Peak 2.00  Party Rate Half Fare Passenger - Off Peak 1.00  The B.C. Ferry Corporation gives added fuel costs as the reason  for the increase. In the last 12 months B.C. Ferries spent SI2  million for fuel. This is predicted to increase to $17 million over  the next year. The Crown Corporation feels that they have been  able to keep the increase to a minimum by reducing the fuel  consumption for each vehicle carried from six to four gallons.  ON THE INSIDE...

One of the reports indicate that he could have been  wearing a mask.  Although the police feel that there is a tendency within the  community to over-react to the stories circulating and become  suspicious of anyone out of the ordinary, they are treating Ihe  reports seriously. They feel that as a community grows, so do the  problems.  With this in mind, they have visited both schools and given the  students talks on awareness and how to notice things in such a way  that they can be used to give an accurate description at a later date.  A letter from the Roberts Creek Community Association  complained about conditions in Cliff Gilker Park to the Regional  Board recently. This huge tree has been down across the  amphitheatre for more than six months and has rendered  impassable the boardwalk path above the amphitheatre.  Community Association says  Gilker Park  needs attention  The Regional Board voted at a recent meeting to recommend  that the Finance Committee consider a budget for park  maintenance in order to tidy up Cliff Gilker Park beside the golf  course in Roberts Creek.  The action came after the board received a letter from Gail  Cromie, Secretary of the Roberts Creek Community Association.  The letter from Ms. Cromie read:  "It has been brought to our attention that Cliff Gilker Park has  fallen into a sad state of disrepair.  "We would like to suggest the Regional District have the road  into the park graded and if possible repair and maintain the  bridges and trails."  Earlier this spring thc Roberts Creek Lions Club had written  the Regional Board requesting that they be allowed to take over  maintenance ofthe park. Spokesmen for the club told the Coast  News earlier this fall that lack of manpower had hampered their  plans for the upkeep of the park.  The only maintenance done in the park in thc past six months  has been undertaken by Elphinstone Alternate School students  who repaired a bridge beneath Bridal Falls. Another bridge in  dangerous condition near the entrance to the park has been  partially repaired but still seems none too secure.  Dispute over food  Port Mellon mill  closed briefly  Internal labour problems in the catering service at the Canfor  mill in Port Mellon caused a temporary reduction in service.  In protest, the day workers staged a walk-out at noon on  Monday November 17, leaving a skeleton crew and essential  workers to run the afternoon shift.  Production was not affected and the workers returned the  following day when the food service problem was rectified.  Log salvage notice  At the request of Whonnock Industries, Gibsons RCMP wish  to notify log salvagers that they can no longer tie up, or boom logs  at Steamboat Rock in Howe Sound.  The area is designated as Cotton Grounds four and five and is  within Whonnock Industries' lease area. Salvagers who have logs  presently tied in this area are asked to remove them. /  Coast News  The  Sunshine  (JCNA  II  November 25, 1980  If *  f  BLUE  RIBBON  AWARD  1978  Second Class Mail Registration No. 4702  A LOCALLY OWNED NEWSPAPER  Published at Gibsons, B.C. every  Tuesday, by Glassford Prats Ltd.

The recent revelation that the B.C.  Teachers Federation has been sitting on a  report critical of it should surprise no one.  It is the bureaucratic norm for expensive  reports which criticize the status quo to be  buried and the B.C. Teachers Federation is  one of the prime examples in the province  of bureaucracy run amok.  Twenty-five years ago the B.C. Teachers  Federation had a walk-up office presided  over by Charlie Ovens and a secretary or  two. Today it has a staff of hundreds and  occupies more than one city block in  Vancouver. The federation is not alone, of  course. It is the nature of bureaucracies to  grow and spread but its remarkable growth  in a single generation offers a worthwhile  profile of the bureaucratic disease in  action.  The report in question charges that the  BCTF is not serving the best interests of  teachers, that it is too political, and that it  is controlled by a handful of activists.  Now there is no brief held here for the  BCTF or any other bureaucracy for that  matter. It is fat, it serves primarily the  interests of the bureaucrats who people it,  and it serves all too often for a last lucrative  resting place for the afore-mentioned  activists when they wish to come to rest.  Nonetheless it is perhaps significant that  the charges against the BCTF come at a  time when it is preparing to become more  political than it has been for some time. All  . organizations depend heavily upon a  handful of activists, whether we are talking  of the BCTF or the Socred party of B.C.  All organizations must be political finally,  so these charges against the Teachers  Federation are less significant than they  are being made out to be.  The other charge, that the Federation  does not serve the interest of teachers is  also questionable. It certainly has been  extremely successful at improving the  salaries of the practitioners.  A shewder criticism of the BCTF might  be that it has been ineffectual in the service  ofthe children ofthe province. Its attempts  to have significant input into the Learning  Conditions have been for the most part  easily forestalled by a provincial government which has been largely unfriendly to  the organization.  The trouble with the BCTF may be, in  fact, that it has been altogether too  successful in serving the interests of  teachers and that those interests are too  narrowly defined. The salaries of school  principals in the province of British  Columbia have increased since 1970 more  than two hundred percent so it is obvious  the BCTF is doing alright by these  gentlemen at least.  It is instructive to consider the position  of school administrators. Though they  have by definition a different function in  schools than teachers they are nearly  always prominent in teachers' organizations where they pack a lot of clout  because of their power over their staff  members. This is one reason they do so  very well in bonuses and administrative  allowances. When the principal of a  medium sized high school is drawing from  the public purse about as much as a cabinet  minister, eyebrows should be raised.  It is instructive to compare a high school  with a hospital. The administrator in the  latter is a man trained for the job of  managing. He is a different creature from  the men who practise medicine and it is  unthinkable that he should hold sway over  their professional decisions affecting the  health of the patients of the hospital. The  administrator in a high school is a teacher  who as squirmed and clawed his way out of  the classroom after training as a teacher.  After he has become a manager he has  enormous power over those professionals  still practising the important business of  education. It is an absurd and foolish  system which benefits only those who have  clawed their way to power.  On matters such as these the BCTF,  whatever its effectuality in the pursuit of  salaries, is a eunuch. It is true that it does  not serve the deeper interests of educators  well. It is true it does not serve the interests  of students well. It does, however, fill  wallets and buy sailboats for its members,  fatten the power-hungry and provide  lucrative semi-retirement for the activists  who run it. That role has contented the  membership for the last quarter century.  There have been honourable exceptions  in its leadership in that time but the men of  vision have been few, their effect  negligible.  ...from the files of the COAST NEWS  FIVE YEARS AGO  Public pressure is given credit for the  reduction recently in gasoline prices  on the Sunshine Coast.

Standing, from left to right, are Saara, Teena,  Oiva, Klvi, and Katie. The youngest, Erie, is seated between thc parents. The  Wilkmans had moved to the plateau west from Howe Sound in 1905. They had  settled on a 40-acrc piece ofthe 160-acre Crown Grant land preempted earlier by-  John Payne, south of what is now Reid Road. By 1910, the number of children of  ethnic Finnish backgrounds enrolled in the local one-room school contributed to  the need for a new two-room building, core ofthe present Resource Centre. Andy  Wilkman had been trained as a painter, but he was obliged to work at any job that  became available here. After termination ofthe Stoltz shinglebolt flume operation  in ! 922, employment became slack. As was the lot of many other pioneers, years of  effort expended in an attempt to establish a permanent home could not prevail  against the odds. When, soon after, the Wilkman family moved away, their  departure thinned the ranks ofthe scattered Gibson's Heights community. Photo  courtesy the Inglis family and Elphinstone Pioneer Museum.  I. .R. Peterson  Musings  John Burnside  Slings & Arrows >%  George Matthews  *f  I went over to Peter Trow-  er's place the other afternoon.  I had a brochure to return to  him about an upcoming art  show in Vancouver and we  hadn't had a visit for a coupft  of weeks in any case.  I found him at work on a  couple of songs with his  accompanying guitarist, Terry  Cowderoy. The songs are  poems put to the bluesy music  that Trower loves and during  the half hour or so that I  could stay he also recited the  poem which appears on this  page and which was new to  me, also to the accompaniment of some choice guitar  chords from Cowderoy.  Now there was nothing particularly surprising in any of  this. I've heard Trower belt  out the blues in various stages  of inebriation at various  locations on the Gulf of  Georgia. He's also been  working with musicians on his  poetry and turning his poetry  into songs for several years.  In fact, a few years ago,  accompanied by local musicians Ken Dalgleish and  Mike Dunn, Trower appeared  on the Peter Gzowski show  live and coast to coast in  Canada.  What was remarkable the  other day was the definite  quality of the performance  being given, even in rehearsal  and while I listened my mind  wandered back a few years.  Trower first came to read  at thc high school while 1  was teaching there, at the  invitation of one Waldo Dahl,  a mathematics teacher who  did not believe in moulds  or watertight compartments  in education. Shortly after this  first visit, taken by his poetry,  I invited Peter to my classroom and he read to my  English students.  It was a man virtually  paralyzed by diffident shyness  who read on that occasion,  cap pulled down over the forehead, body slouched and  angled away from his listeners, while the remarkable  Trower mumble made virtually everything he read  inaudible. The students listened politely and did seem  intrigued by this strange yet  compelling figure mumbling  before them.  We continued to encourage  Trower, the performer. We  told him about George Bernard Shaw's dictum that a  man had to learn public  speaking by getting up and  making a fool of himself until  he had learned to do it.  Pete persevered.  There came the night in  April of 1972 when we arranged for him to read before  a performance of Tennessee  Williams' play Suddenly Last  Summer. The play ran for just  over an hour and it was  thought that a half hour of  poetry reading would flesh  the evening out. It would also  give our poet his first opportunity of reading from a stage  to an audience of other than  school children.  Again our poet-performer  went through the tortures of  the damned. The prospect of  reading from the stage quite  simply terrified him. He  arrived drunk. We put a chair  at the crack in the curtain and  led him to it with the curtain  closed. We opened the curtain  just a few feet so that if  anything went disastrously  wrong we could close it again  in a hurry. Again the sideways  mumble under the protective  cap. The audience was kind  and supportive but even the  front row was whispering to  the poet, "Speak up, Peter."  Again Peter persevered and  in a remarkably short time he  was throwing his head back,  standing up, squaring his  shoulders and getting the  good words out. Poetry  readings locally, in Powell  River, on Saltspring Island  followed. An invitation to fly  to Toronto to publicize a book,  a poetry reading in Winnipeg,  the   aforementioned  appear  ance on national television,  and the fledgling performer  had taken flight - his performance as polished as his  poetry.  It's eight and a half years  now since Pete first read his  work from a stage to an  audience and anyone who has  not heard him read in the  interim is in for a pleasant  surprise. When I walked  in on the recitation of The  Storm Riders last week it was  being declaimed with professional authority and the  poet's own understanding,  light years as a performance  away from the attempts of  the mumbling introvert of  yesteryear.  The singing too is better.  Working with Cowderoy is  good for Trower. There are  old favourites like Blowpit  Blues which Dave Virella first  put to music and sang with  Home Brew ten years ago and  there are new songs like the  logging blues number Between the Sky and the Splinters.  All in all Trower and  Cowderoy put together a  polished offering of remarkably effective poetry and  blues.  They are rehearsing some  material right now for an  appearance at the Literary  Store Front on Water Street  in Gastown, December 7.  The show starts at 8:00 p.m.  and if you should happen to  be in Gastown on that Sunday  evening give yourself a treat  and take in their work.  Perhaps the greatest difference between Homo Sapiens and the rest of the  ' animal kingdom is Man's  propensity to attempt to  achieve excellence. No matter  how well something has been  done, there is someone,  somewhere, who believes he  can do it better. Man is the  only living thing on the face  of the Earth that is never  satisfied with the way things  are. While this is his greatest  strength, it is also his greatest  weakness.  Even I, your most humble  and unpretentious correspondent, have been struck from  time to time with the insatiable desire to do something better than anyone else.  Surely this terrible urge to  succeed violates at least one,  if not several, of the seven  deadly sins. At my age,  I don't worry much about  lust or greed or gluttony, but  the overweening pride of  wishing to be the best at  something is unquestionably  grounds for being barred from  the Kingdom of Heaven.  The terrible ambition which  has gripped my immortal  soul is the decadent hope of  making the world's greatest  cheesecake. Ah I You laugh.  You think this mundane hope  is insignificant. But the truth  is that my every waking  moment has become consumed with thoughts of  cheesecake. It is a wicked and  evil thing to want to be the  best at. The last time it  happened, I was engaged  in a hopeless quest for the  world's best pizza. I worked  for months, researched even  the most obscure of pizza  recipes, became an expert in  the history of pizza and  corresponded with the greatest pizza makers in the world.  I purchased the best ingredients, bought a new  stove, acquired the best pizza  pans money could buy.  When the day came to  put my recipe to the test, I  was consumed with confidence. The pastry was  perfect. No one had made a  better pizza crust. The tomato  sauce was without flaw - imported from an obscure village  in Yugoslavia. The best  cheese, the most perfect  mushrooms, the ultimate anchovies and the ideal pep-  peroni were organized for  pure ecstasy. Being the best  doesn't come cheap. By the  time the pizza was popped  into the imported oven, the  cost per slice of my ideal  pizza was something in excess  of $250.00.  No more glorious sight has  ever welcomed the view of  man than my most perfect  pizza. Running the pizza  cutter through my masterpiece was like slicing a razor  blade down my spine. I  winced. 1 cringed. It was like  allowing my children to be  dismembered. Following the  obligatory photographs, I  carefully slid the pie knife  under the first section. Even  after all these years the  humiliation of the next few  moments remains with me  like a scar. In my lust for  perfection, my greed for the  ideal, I had forgotten to grease  the pan. To this day, my  perfect pizza remains welded  to the pan, a symbol of Man's  arrogance, untasted, unappreciated, an object of contempt and ridicule.  But this time, success will  not elude me. I have acquired  a fool-proof cheesecake recipe. I will share the ingredients with you now, safe  in the knowledge that any  cheesecake you make will not  come close to what I have  built.  2'/] cups homemade graham wafer crumbs  '/i cup home-ground, granulated sugar  'A cup melted farm butter,  unsalted  5 brown egg whites (slowly  beat in)  500 grams of imported cream  cheese  5 brown egg yolks  3    tablespoons    of   freshly  Please turn to Page Three.

He starts throwing  around orders again: "Get this.  Get that. Come on, wc ain't got  all day!" I can't figure whether  he's playing some kind of Red  Power game or if he just plain  doesn't like me. We've worked  our way around to the steepest  face of thc knoll and the going  is getting rougher. The weather  has turned hot and dry. Joshua  takes to lying in the shady  bushes and watching mc as I set  those interminable snares. I've  just about had a gutfull of him.  At last, I reach the end of my  rope. We're down by the  tailblock. getting ready to  change roads. I've left one log  that lies far behind thc tail-  stump and doesn't seem worth  stretching for. It's in old slash  and has obviously been  'bought'  or   left   by  some  previous crew. Joshua however, chooses to make a big  issue out of it. "What the hell's  the matter with that one? You  blind or something? "That does  it!  "No I ain't blind and what's  more, I'm goddamn sick and  tired of taking your shit! That  hemlock ain't worth tagging-  out three chokers for and you  bloody know it! You and I  better start trying to get along,  buddy or there's going to be  trouble!"  Joshua is taken completely  off-guard by my outburst. He  stands there stupidly with his  mouth open. Then he begins to  back-pedal furiously. "Okay.  Okay. Just take her easy. We'll  buy the damn log."  I'm still boiling but I say no  more. He knows where I stand  now   and   that's   enough.

We change roads and  work in stony silence the rest of  the day.  Next morning when we  arrive in camp, I'm surprised to  learn that Joshua has packed-  up his gear and gone. Just like  that. I suppose I ran him off ina  sense. I'm not at all displeased  by the thought. I'm only sorry I  didn't face him down sooner.  We work the trackloader  shorthanded till about eleven  o'clock. Then Black's truck  comes low-gearing up the  switchbacks and parks at the  edge of the landing. He's  brough someone with him but  I'm too far back in the brush to  see who it is. Then I hear a  familiar high-pitched voice; a  well-known cackle of laughter.  By God if it isn't Cliff Jones!  Cliff and I go back to the'  stone-age. I first worked with  him about eighteen years  before when Finn Billy the  mad skyhanger was in his  prime. I had no love for him in  those early camps. He was  forever clowning around and  playing crazy practical jokes,  often at my expense. Time  muted this irksome quality and  in later camps, we got along  fine. Cliff is a born logger like  his daddy and brother before  him. He's still capable of  mischief on occasion but he  knows the business backwards  and is as good a sidehill partner  as you could wish. I'm honestly  glad to see him.  Cliff has developed a bit of a  pot from several years of  punching-donkey and his hair  is beginning to grey around the  edges but he's still got much of  his youthful exuberance. He's  the perfect antidote for Joshua.  Logging is just one giant lark  you should never take too  seriously. "Slingin' in the  riggin' with the poet by my  side" he chants joyfully as we  set beads in the worsening heat.  Volunteers step forward  Sunshine Coast high school  students have been involved  in a number of local jobs for  nearly a year through the  Youth Volunteer Program.  The program is designed to  help young people get meaningful community or work  experience and to help community agencies provide services by using students as  well as their usual volunteers.  Mike Smeaton has been coordinator for the program  since its inception last spring.  He divides his time between  the program and a part-time  teaching job at Chatelech.  Mike feels the program has  been very successful in improving community attitudes  toward teenagers in general  as well as benefitting employers who have participated  by using the young volunteers.  There are currently about a  dozen students engaged in  various projects ranging in  duration from a few weeks to a  few months. These include  hospital care, mapping for  forestry services, woodworking, crafts, newspaper production and assistance in the  Indian Band day care swim  program.  Another way in which both  employers and colunteers  benefit is by using the on-  the-job training the students  are receiving during the  school year and extending  it into summer employment.  Mike can be reached at the  Youth Volunteer Program,  885-5881.  At the Twilight  bottom is tailing right  out of the humidity-gauge and  we are compelled to go on  early-shift. The trouble with  these awkward hours is the  difficulty of getting to sleep in  the hotter-than-hell evenings.  By the third day of it, I'm  thoroughly exhausted and  decide to grab a couple of hours  shuteye before supper. I'm  rudely awakened by someone  energetically hammering on the  door of my shack. It's Cliff. For  a second 1 think its one of his  l oldtime stunts. "What the hell's  I up?" I shout groggily.  "Bloody mountain's on fire!  i We got to go back out."  "Holy shit!" I jump up right  smartly and start pulling on my  sweaty woods-gear. Fighting-  ! fire  was  never one  of my  favourite pastimes but it's part  I of what you bargain for. "How  I the hell did it start?" I ask him  as we roar back to the boonies  in his station wagon.  "Dunno" says Cliff "but it's  right up on top by the track-  loader. Way I figure, it was one  of Justin's cigarettes. He's  careless as hell about them."  "Well it sure wasn't one of  mine. I always spit on the  bastards and grind them out  good. Who needs this bullshit?"  We hit camp and head right  up the mountain with the rest  of the recalled crew. Old  Casey's obviously had time to  get a few beers down him at the  pub. "Can't you guys run that  pisspot-show without settin'  the whole gaddam claim on  fire?" he growls. We blame it all  on Justin.  We highball into the bowl  and head up the zigzagging  road toward the summit.  Smoke roils up the sky in great  grimy clouds propelled by  kicking flames that snarl visibly  along the ridge. Black, in a  burst of sheer luck, has managed to obtain the immediate  services of a waterbomber. It  wobbles in over us now, led by  its pilotfish bird-dog plane and  clobbers the flaming hill with a  solid wallop of water. "By  Jesus! those guys are johnny-  on-the-spot for a change" says  Cliff. "They don't usually show?  up till half the country's gone!"  To be continued.  Fans of the late great  British comic Peter Sellers  will be sure to appreciate die  opportunity to see his final  film Ihe Fiendish Plot of Dr.  Fo Manchu features Sellers  playing opposite himself in a  number of lead roles.  Sellers has used this technique effectively in several  films, most notably in Or.  Strangelove, Stanley Kubrick's masterful black comedy  of the atomic age. Critics  have not been kind to The  Fiendish Plot of Pr. Fn  Manchu, many expressing the  wish that Sellers be remembered for his second to last  triumph, Being Then, but  Sellers' comic style varied  widely from film to film  throughout his career from  subtle deadpan to pure slapstick.  Ihe Fiendish Plot of Dr.  Fa Manchu plays at the  Twilight Theatre from Wednesday, November 26 to  Saturday, November 29.  Sunday, November 30, My  Brilliant Career, an award-  winning Australian film, begins a three day run at the  Twilight Theatre. My Brilliant  Career is a remarkable com-  ing-of-age tale which explores  the aspirations and frustrations of a talented 16-year-  old girl growing up on her  family's poverty stricken farm  in 1897.  The heroine, Sybylla Mel-  vyn, eventually overcomes the  repressive atmosphere of her  family and the times in which  she lives, but her struggle  makes a fascinating story and  the lead actress, Judy Davis,  is receiving wide critical  acclaim for her sensitive  portrayal of Sybylla Melvyn.  My Brilliant Career is based  on the autobiography of Stella  Miles Franklin, published  in 1901 and is remarkable not  only for skill with which  the actors bring the story  vividly to life and make it  relevant today, but for the  painstaking recreation of the  Australian colony in the  Victorian Age. My Brilliant  Career is at the Twilight until  Tuesday, December 2.  Arts Centre shows  Fritz Lang film  On December 2, Scarlet  Street, a 1945 American film  directed by Fritz Lang, will be  shown at the Sunshine Coast  Arts Centre. Scarlet Street is  a remake of La Chlenne, made  in 1931 by Jean Renoir and  stars Edward G. Robinson,  Joan Bennett and Dan Dur-  yea.  Fritz Lang has said of his  protagonist: "Robinson's fate  is the fate of a young artist  who cares much more for his  paintings then for gaining  money... By the end he has  become a bum; everybody  has forgotten about him and  we know that all his pictures  have soared up in price."  There have been some  problems with the delivery  of films  in  this  series.   If  Channel Ten  Scarlet Street does not arrive  on time, the Arts Council will  be pleased to present Metropolis, another Fritz Lang film  made in 1926 in Germany.  This powerful film is set in  the 21st century and portrays the struggle and ultimate union of labour and  capital. It was shown on the  Sunshine Coast a few years  ago and some viewers declared it the best film they'd  ever seen.  The screening will be at  8 p.m. at the Arts Centre  in Sechelt. Admission is $2.50,  half price for seniors and  students. You may phone the  Arts Centre (885-5412) 11-4 on  Tuesday, December 2 to find  out which film will be shown.

General Notes: Action-  planet Mars squares optimistic  Jupiter indicating x\ period of  rash behaviour, hasty decisions  and over-confident ventures.  Because Mars squares restrictive Saturn early next week, it is  likely that projects started at  this time will soon suffer delays  or disappointments. Advice,  therefore, is to postpone launching new ventures till later  next week.  Love-planet Venus enters  passionate Scorpio intensifying  recent romantic involvements.  Babies born this week will be  ambitious, hard-working and  self-reliant. Some will swing  from extremes of extravagance  to miserliness. A few will  possess a poor sense of timing.  ARIES (March 21 - April 19)  Emphasis is on your renewed  ambition. There's a strong  desire for faster rate of advancement in professional or  business arenas. Man-at-the-  top may be shocked at your  frank demands for more responsibility, recognition and  cash. Discussions with banker,  insurance agent or loan-shark  become more relaxed. Spontaneous romantic amusement  is best bet Friday night.  TAURUS (April 20 - May 20)  Attention is drawn to your  tactless, philosophical statements. Chances are you'll have  too much to say regarding  routines and procedures at  place of employment. Advice is  to keep the mouth shut and  follow traditional methods.  Relations with loved one,  partner, business associates  improve rapidly. Expect sudden domestic upset Friday  afternoon.  GEMINI (May 21 - June 71)  Accent is on reckless financial speculation, especially with  other people's property, funds  or investments. You have the  courage to persuade miserly  money-lender to hand over the  cash. Close associate will back  up your irresponsible actions.  Enjoy happier, job-scene atmosphere for a few weeks.  Local trips face diversions on  Friday.  CANCER (June 22 - July 22)  Focus is on hasty partnership proposals. Loved one or  business associate is determined to launch ill-planned  scheme. Refuse to co-sign  contracts, agreements linked to  rental or real estate opportunity. Romantic or creative  pursuit is source of upcoming  contentment. Anticipate sudden financial loss end of the  week. June 24 - 29 birthdays  should walk away from arguments.  LEO (July 23 - August 22)  There's too much rushing  around where you discharge  daily duties. Have nothing to  do with co-worker's slapdash  performance or presentation.  Safeguard machinery, equipment against over-heating or  fire. Protective work-wear is a  must at jobsite. Next four  weeks is perfect period for'  beautifying your living space.  Moon in your sign Friday finds  you tired and cranky.  VIRGO (August 23-Sept. 22)  Prepare to explain regrettable romantic interlude or  risky venture. What to do  about current infatuation is  first on agenda. Virgo gamblers  gain only experience this week.  Neighbourhood trips and visits  find you forgiven and welcome  again. Child in your life is ruder  than usual. Favourite secluded  spot is open to disturbances,  intruders late Friday night.  LIBRA (Sept. 23 - Oct. 23) .  Jupiter in your sign squaring  Mars indicates you're over-  optimistic and eager to take  biggest risk of a lifetime. Have  lawyer study too-good-to-be-  true opportunity, especially  land or property deal. Where  you live is scene of noisy  activities, break-in, or even  small fire. Double-check locks  and burners. Surprise gift is  being wrapped just for you.  Best friend is in weird mood  Friday afternoon.  SCORPIO (Oct. 24 - Nov. 22)  Beauty-planet Venus in your  sign says it's your turn to spruce  up image with new clothes and  hair-do. Your increased charm  and popularity will draw you to  pleasanter social circles, more  affectionate companions.  Meanwhile, highway driving .  and letter writing need extra  care and consideration. Boss or  superior has off-beat  proposition for Friday night.  SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23 -  Dec. 21)  Spotlight is on your  irresponsible spending habits.  There's a strong urge to blow  hard-earned cash on risky,  long-range undertaking. Your  generous, carefree attitude now  attracts free-loaders, layabouts and losers. Put aside  plans for major purchase till  end of next week. Looks like  you're about to benefit from  more time alone. Expect  unusual message from remote  place on Friday.  CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 - Jan.  19)  Action-planet Mars enters  your sign heralding the start of  a new, two-year energy cycle.  However, this planet now  squares Jupiter indicating  over-ambitious personal  schemes.

As far as we know, human  beings are the only creatures  who conceive of time as something inorganic, abstract, to  be measured. In fact, the  whole concept of time as we  understand it is so slippery  and elusive that the massive  Websters Dictionary on the  Editor's desk begins with the  definition, "The general idea  of successive existence" and,  moving from the general to  the particular, "the measure  of duration".  Time, absolute or relative,  can never be completely extricated conceptually from the  idea of measurement, and the  methods humanity has devised to measure it are a  testimony to the ingenuity of  the species. One of the most  fascinating books on the  subject is devoted to one  single method of measuring  time; Rene Rohr's Sundials  (University of Toronto Press,  1970. Originally published in  196$ by Gauthier-Villars as  Lee Cadrana aolalree. Translation by Dr. Gabriel Godin.)  Rohr was born in 1905 and  spent twenty years of his  working life at sea. His  familiarity with the instruments of navigation led to a  lifelong interest in astronomy  and mathematics and when he  retired to an administrative  position in Strasbourg, he  pursued both subjects, as well  as a law degree.  When Rohr discovered a  fine old sundial in a remote  Austrian village, he decided  to construct a sundial for  himself. Obviously a somewhat thorough man, he has  become a recognized expert  on the history and construction of sundials.  The sundial, once a common  feature of public and private  gardens, seems to be passing  out of use these days. Strictly  speaking, they passed their  prime as a practical device for  measuring time hundreds of  years ago, but they were still  a popular feature of parks and  Astrology cont'd.  gardens in the 18th and  19th centuries. Often they  were placed at the centre of  the hedge-mazes and labyrinths also popular at the time.  (There's a parable on the  mystery of life and mortality  in there somewhere).  Sundials is not a lyrical  coffee-table volume to be  thumbed through lightly and  left out to impress the guests.  It's a history and manual of  construction for serious students. The book includes  chapters on the history of the  sundial, gnomonic cosmography, Oassical sundials,  inclined dials, solar calendars,  even moon dials. Parts of the  theory and construction are  a bit heavy going for the  uninitiated, but the translation  is clear and a slow and careful  reading will keep you on track.  The book has its lighter  moments as well, by no means  the least of which is a short  final chapter listing a number  of Latin and Provencal quotations culled from sundials.  I offer a few samples... "Do  not forget to live", "It is later  than you think", "Each one  wounds, the last one kills",  "One of these will be your  last", and on a less morbid  note, "Any hour can go to my  friends" and the perennial  Carpe Diem: "Use well the  day".  I think my favourite inscription must be "The last is  hidden so that we have to  watch them all." That, or this  one from old Provence,  "Passer-by, stop, look at the  time, and... get the hell out  ofhere!"  I'm not sure I agree with  everything Rohr says about  the origin and early history  of the sundial. He suggests  that even the most primitive  hunter - gatherer peoples  would notice that the length of  their shadows and the shadows of the trees varied with  the passage of the sun and  he hypothesizes that primitive  man might well have invented  the first gnomon, the simplest  form of sundial; an upright  stick.  fresh project.

PISCES (Feb. 19 - Mar. 20)  You're in the mood to  activate courageous, long-  range plan with little regard for  immediate financial consequences.

Romane returns to Elphi  Necessity is usually the  mother of invention, however,  and most hunter-gatherer  peoples mark time by the  seasons and the migrations  of animals and need little  more in the way of a calendar,  let alone a more exact method  of telling time. The idea of  measuring time accurately  seems to go hand in hand  with the development of  mathematics in general, specifically the practical math of  engineering, and the first  stone gnomons are associated  chronologically with the sudden rapid development of  large scale architecture in  ancient Egypt and Mesopotamia.  Sundials is a bit difficult to  find. I suppose it's not the  kind of thing bookstore owners  get a lot of call for. It's not  cheap either, (about $20,  but I got it for $8 in a secondhand bookstore) but if the  subject interests you, it's  the book. All for now. Use well  the day.  The Grade 12 and Student  Council of Elphinstone are  sponsoring the return of  Romane on Sunday, November 30th at 2:30 p.m. We  can guarantee an overwhelming display of showmanship  at this unbelievable concert of  hypnosis. Romane is sure to  delight the whole familiar with  his hilarious show that has  toured internationally. This is  Romane's all new show  recently seen before 50,000  people at the PNE. The PNE's  Entertainment bookers said  Romane's show was truly  fabulous and immediately  re-booked him for next year.  But even more of a surprise  is the fact that some of our  local celebrities will be attending and participating at the  concert. Amongst these celebrities will be Aldermen-  Elect Diane Strom and Bill  Edney, Mayor Lorraine Goddard and poeslbly Robert  "Relic" Clothier, star of  "The  Beachcombers",  An interview with Romane  and excerpts of the show will  be televised on Channel 10  the following week. This Wednesday night we have a  telephone interview with Romane answering some interesting  questions.  The profits will be invested  into the grad ftind and the  school's  minibus  fund.  Book Look  by Murrie Redman  Omni and Science Digest magazines, approximately $2.00 per  issue. A Reader's Guide to Science Fiction by authors Searles,  Last, Meacham and Franklin, Facts on File 1979, $12.95  Science fiction becomes more credible as man ventures father  into space and deeper into the mysteries of his place in the  universe. Science fiction buffs are sure to find the whole thing  exciting, especially the speculation that there may be other life  forms out there.  Perhaps this newly-awakened interest in the possible  convergence of sci-fi and science is the reason that glossy  magazines such as Omni and Science Digest are doing so well.  Omni is an exquisite combination ofthe science and the fantasy  aspects. The authoritative guest writers, its intelligent treatment  of subjects and its sumptous illustrations make it worth the rather  high cost.  Science Digest surprised its readers recently by changing  format and emphasis. What was once a small, rather dry-looking  monthly is now a bi-monthly, the size and shape of Omni.  The "sister" magazines make for competition which will  hopefully enhance the sales of each and thus, their lives. Omni is  inclined toward the commercial sci-fi market, while Science  Digest remains basically scientific.  The Facts on File publishers provide a nice companion for  science fiction readers in their Reader's Guide. In fact, the four  authors recommend that one take it along on book buying binges  into the realms of sci-fi shelves. Fully indexed, the book leads  readers to information about their authors, which series are  available and in what order the latter come. It also introduces one  to other writers in various spheres.  Commentaries on the outward, as well as inward, trajectories of  writing in the genre are revealing. Reading lists for the serious  initiate, and updating of new arrivals for the afficionado are there.  Near the end, are biographical notes on the best known authors:  200 of them. Also included is a galaxy of Space Academy and  Nebula winners to 1978. The cosmos of information available in  this book makes it a sci-fi reader's bible.

It's high time that the local  highways department takes a  good look along Redrooffs  Road to see what a mess there  is with all the new roads  and some of thc older ones on  the upper side of the highway.  There seems to be no  provision made for water  run-off, the result being that  there are streams of water  running across thc highway.  Then these freeze up they will  be deadly for drivers.  Film night.  Film night at Welcome  Beach Hall for this month is  this Thursday the 27th at  7:30 p.m. There are some  beautiful films of the Orient  and with the recent Shogun  series there is much interest  in Japan so these films are  very topical. Should be an  enjoyable two hours of film  for the whole family at a cost  of only 50f. Last month's  film night was well attended  and hopefully so will this one.  There was not a very good  turn-out at last week's bingo  night which would seem to be  an indication that people are  not too interested in bingo  despite the fact that it was  requested there be more such  evenings. It just seems that  since cable TV has come to the  area people stay at home  more.   The   Milore   Nursery  made a really nice gesture by  donating a gift certificate at  the bingo evening which was  won by Hazel Berthetet.  Auxiliary night oat.  Monday, December 2nd  is Christmas party night at  Welcome Beach Hall for Halfmoon Bay Hospital Auxiliary  so there isn't much time left  to make reservations. A turkey  dinner and wine will be served  at 7 p.m. following happy  hour and we hope to see all  members with their friends.  You can give Mary Murray a  call at 885-2613 right away  and come and join us for what  is always a very pleasant  get-together. The Auxiliary  were hosts at the November  birthday party in the extended  care section of the hospital  where there were four November birthdays to celebrate.  It was a very happy afternoon  made more so by Elsie Julian's piano playing and a  good old-fashioned sing-song.  Made a nice cheery afternoon  for the patients as well as the  staff.  Good news from the hospital is that Jack Burrows is  home again from there and so  is John Mercer. Both are  reported to be coming along  just fine. So take care of yourselves you two and stay out of  mischief for a while.  Tickets are going quite well  for the Welcome Beach Community Association Christmas  dinners but it would be a good  idea to get your order in  right away so that you won't  be disappointed if you should  leave it till the last minute.  Newcomers to the area should  really try to come to one of  these evenings and get to  know your neighbours and  find out what good nights we  have at the hall. Dates are  December 12th and 13th, and  price is $7.50 each. They can  be obtained from either  Connie Hobbs, Grace Rutherford, Eileen Hansen or myself.  Ratepayers meet.  The directors of Area 'B'  Ratepayers' Association held  their monthly meeting on  Monday of November 17th.  Main topic at this meeting was  the foreshore and water lease  situation which is of great  concern to most of us who live  on the Peninsula. The Association is doing everything  in its power to see that no  more of this precious commodity is given over to  private ownership and is  retained for the public to use  and enjoy. The next meeting  is planned for January so if  there is any matter you wish  to bring to the attention of  your Ratepayers' Association  you should write to The Secretary at R.RJ1, Halfmoon  Bay. Don't seem to have much  in the way of news this week,  but a reminder that if there is  any news item or club activity  you wish to pass on please  give me a call at 885-2418.

Creek fair planned  MAC'S APPLIANCE SERUICE,  The newly formed Hall  Committee of the Roberts  Creek Community Association  is planning the annual Christmas Crafts Fair to be held in  Roberts Creek Hall on December 5th and 6th. This has  always been a fun-filled  prelude to the Christmas  season and years past have  seen the artsy-craftsy folk of  Roberts Creek showing forth  with a very interesting selection of creations, all thrown  together into a cherry hall full  of good food, good music and  good neighbours.  This year there will be a  baking contest as well as  judging of relishes, jams and  preserves. For those interested in wine and beer, homemade of course, there will be  tasting and judging of local  brewing talents.  The Fair begins Friday  evening, 6 p.m., December  5th and is going strong  Saturday the 6th, 11:00 a.m. -  5 p.m. There are more than 30  tables from which to choose  Christmas gifts and this year  there will be a children's  table for the kids to sell their  wares. Raffles, door prizes,  school choirs and, who knows,  perhaps an appearance by  beautiful Mr. Roberts Creek,  all make the Fair a family  fun outing.

As a result of the  presentation the meeting decided to send letters to the  Ministries of Education and  Municipal Affairs adding the  Association's objections to the  location of the propane tanks  on the Roberts Creek wharf.  Cedar Crest Driving Range  is also to receive a letter  objecting to their contravention of the Roberts Creek  Settlement Plan in having a  restaurant in an area which is  not zoned for commercial use.  Apparently the driving range  is legal in the Agricultural  Land Reserve but the licensed  restaurant is not.  In a reply to the Association's letter of September,  the Deputy Minister of Highways sent a lengthy letter  declining thc invitation to  send an official to explain the  local Highways policy to a  public meeting. The Ministry's letter stated that the  policy had been determined in  consultation with local authorities and after thorough  debate with extensive publicity.  The new "Hall Committee"  reported and gave a list of the  executive and membership.  Dianne Evans is chairperson,  Marion Jolicoeur vice, Sue  Shepherd secretary and Bill  Grose and Diana Zornes are  treasurers. The Committee  is putting on the Craft Fair on  December 5 and 6 and is  planning a New Year's Eve  Dance.  Legion elections.

The Legion will again be  holding a New Year's Eve  party. Entertainment will be  provided by George Page and  the $20 per couple includes  food and one drink each.

Auctions always exciting  by Robi Peters  An interesting place to visit  on the mainland is Langley  Auction. Thursday used to be  the big day, where local  produce of all kinds was sold.  Pigs, horses, cows, pigeons,  fancy game hens, fruit and  vegetables. The atmosphere is  friendly and homey, a place  where farmers and ranchers  meet - tell a few jokes and  depending on the weather -  laugh or cry together.  It's a place also for - buyer  beware! I've seen parents  buying an animal for the  family without any previous  knowledge of its care, or any  idea where they should keep  it. Just because it looked  cute, and the kids wanted it.  Besides the farmers and  wives, you'll see meat dealers  and buyers from big companies like 'Swifts' and  'Pacific Meats'. They will be  dressed just like the rest,  cowboy boots and hats.  Not so bizarre bazaar  prcxoch  OFFICE  ��� Photocopiers  * Cash Registers  ELECTRONICS  * Typewriters  Wharf Rd.  ��� Calculators  Office Supplies Furniture   &  Stationery  Sechelt 885-3735  by Jon Van Arsdell  Saturday was Egmont's  sunny day for events this  week. A not-so-bizarre bazaar  at the hall brought out a nice  crowd and the Community  Club is richer by more than  $230. Well, it's a small town  and we figure that's pretty  good. Various people selling  their wares made their own  personal profits and socializing and gossip were rampant. The raffles, as usual,  produced winners in all  categories. Mary Williams  landed First Prize with a gift  certificate at Miss Sunny's  in Madeira Park. Norma  Martin scored a lovely Christmas apron for second and  Joseph Silvey of all people  got the not so surprising  Surprise Gift. Sue Gough  wrapped up the door prize.  Fun for all and all for fun I  Movie Night in Egmont was  the second attraction of the  day and the Deacon provided  an excellent bill of fare.  60 Cycles was a film about a  2500 kilometre ten-speed bicycle race in Quebec that  starred 60 incredible French  Canadian cyclists who go and  go and go. The second movie  was    Satan's    Choice    and  portrayed a very honest  picture of a 1950's motorcycle  club.  The feature film kept us  laughing and cheering for the  duration. I heard people in the  audience exclaim that Botch  Cassidy and the Sundance Kid  "The Early Years" was better  than the original. Everybody  loves a good Western. I'll use  this space to pay special  thanks to the lovely ladies,  no joke, who run the kitchen.

Egmont was represented at  Qualicum Beach by the  Tzoonle River. Billy Griffiths'  crew included Johnny Griffiths, John Seabrook and  Leonard and Joseph Silvey.  They were tickled by capturing better than 350 dog  salmon averaging 11 pounds  each. Qualicum is famous for  the fact that some years  there are more boats than fish.  John estimated six to seven  hundred this year, including  gillnetters.

The auction  room is like a Greek arena,  sawdust ring, seats in tiers to  the ceiling. Everyone can see.  Like the game of blackjack,  everyone is trying to adopt a  casual stance and a poker  face, especially if the cow or  pigs you are bidding on are  going at a good price and  you hope nobody will outbid  you.  On the other hand you are  selling and you have tried to  bring up the bid by bidding  on it and you are the last  bidder. Vou hope like hell you  are not stuck with it and have  to take it home!  The auctioneer who knows  the usual buyers, will keep his  eyes open for a fast wink or  a tip of the hat from his  clients. His fast talk still has  me baffled. Since my first  visit to Langley Auction years  ago, I've learned by experience not to weat high  heels, especially if you want to  look at the animals in the  barns at the back of the arena.  No more need be said. It is  best to look very close at the  animals you intend to bid on.  If you see something you like,  remember his or her number  when they are brought into the  ring.

Except for one very important  factor. They were all fence  breakers 11 was getting more  than my usual exercise chasing these critters up and  down the main highway after  each escapade.  According to my neighbour,  that's when I invented more  swear words than he had ever  heard and he's an expert.  Jogging was just coming in, as  a fad. I was glad, because  people must have wondered  what I was doing running up  and down the highway.

I didn't  always enjoy going there,  the reason being certain  times the prices were low and  the money we got didn't even  pay for the feed. Having a  young family to care for,  holding on to them until the  price increased was impossible.  It was with sad hearts we  would toad up the old truck  and pack it full of fat wiener  pigs and set off for Langley.  With baited breath we would  hopefully wait, while the  auctioneer tried his best to  raise the prices.  Of course there have been  happier times when prices  have increased. The gamble is  still there, in raising pigs  on a small basis. The price  iluctuates so much there is  no happy medium. Although  ���ve have only a few animals  left, I'll never regret having to  learn (the hard way) about  raising pigs, cows and horses.  The trips to Langley on  Auction Day were always  exciting!

The initials stand for Intelligence Quotient and it is a  number, denoting the ratio of  the given person's intelligence  to the normal, or average  intelligence. The l.Q. is  supposed to assess only  capacity, unrelated to accomplishment. Therefore it  was initially presumed to be  important in teaching, enabling educators to sort out  under-achievers and pressure  them to live up to their  "potential", and, conversely,  to show understanding and  compassion for children of  limited ability.  The names most associated  with tests and a scale for  measuring intelligence are  those of two French psychologists, Simon and Binet.  Based upon their original  work, a great variety of tests  and scales have been devised  and published. Thousands of  children have been tested on  thousands of forms to generate the most accurate norms  possible. We have B.C. norms  for most tests used in the  school system.  The raw score made on a  test is converted to years  and months of growth. If the  child's score indicates a  growth of six years and zero  months, and that child is six  years and zero months old,  his l.Q. is 100, right on the  average. If the child's score  indicates a growth of six years  and zero months and he is  eight years zero months old,  his l.Q. is 76, serious retardation compared to normal  growth. If the child's score  indicates a growth of six years  zero months and he is only  four years zero months old,  his l.Q. is 150, very, very  high.  In the 1920's much was  made of Intelligence Quotients. Some prominent features of the Putman-Welr  "Survey of the B.C. School  System" were various test  results and an analysis of  them by the Royal Commissioners. Most of their learned  findings could not be published today; the human rights  people would pounce like  tigers. For example, the claim  was made that in all cases,  children of professional workers excel in school. "Intelligence sufficiently high to  achieve success in a profession is handed down to  children," they stated.  Incredibly, the I.Q.'s of  various racial groups were  compared. The results?  "There is little difference in  mentality among the English,  Scotch and Irish pupils,  although the claim of the  Scotch to a superior mentality  is sustained... Scandinavians,  mainly Norwegians, make  regrettably low scores..."  Great concern was expressed  by the Commissioners that,  although the Japanese tested  superior to the Chinese,  both tested superior to the  white population. The authors  explained this away by saying:  "The superiority is undoubtedly due to selection. In the  main, it is the Japanese and  Chinese who possess qualities  of cleverness, resourcefulness  and courage who emigrate to  British Columbia; the dullards  and less enterprising are left  behind." (This did not explain  the Scandinavian results!)  The Putman-Weir Report  recommended many changes  that were implemented, and  many more that should have  been. In many ways they  were years ahead of their  times, but the faith the two  investigators placed in the  validity and the importance of  I.Q.'s as predictors of educational achievement is not  widely shared today. A child's  Intelligence Quotient is no  longer considered the key to  his learning. Group, intelligence tests have, been discredited. Parents have a right  to see their children's school  records and can, and should,  challenge any figure that purports to represent the child's  capacity to learn, any test  result that might stereotype a child, or prejudice a  teacher against that child.  In a bold move to discover  how the attitude of teachers  rather than the rated intelligence of the pupils might  affect achievement, some A-  merican teachers were told  that they had been assigned  classes of extremely bright  children, and that they would  be rated on how well they  helped these "little geniuses"  to achieve. The classes were  really composed of children  who had tested in the normal  range and were actually  mediocre in past performance  in school. Under the influence of teachers inspired  by the challenge of bringing  out the best in their "superior" children, these classes  performed miracles of learning, proving to the satisfaction  of many educators that positive teaching and high expectations can help children  in school achievement.  The converse is more  troublesome. If there are  marks on a record card  indicating low ability, or poor  performance, or if the child  belongs to a minority group  whom the teacher holds in  low regard or does not understand, anticipated poor performance can result in poor  performance and failure. The  teacher will accept no blame  or criticism for lack of success  in   teaching  such   a   loser.  For this reason, parents  must be ever vigilant and  sometimes even aggressive  in making sure their child has  a Permanent Record Card free  of blemishes, one that will not,  in itself, put him at a disadvantage every September  when his new teacher glances  over it to find out the calibre  of the students assigned to  her.  wmmmimimmimimm  w//"' ��� ���'��////;////>> ���"/��///���"'���' w/w" ��� '>>>'����������.

Hardly, but a picture in the  Vancouver Son recently of a  hay wagon pulled by two  hoiMs brought back a flood of  mefflbries; and what better  le than dark, rainy No-  iber to remember sunny,  summer days, memories in  Which most of the recollections  lare pleasant, the irritations  having lost their edge with  time?  Growing up in the post war  period of nostalgia for rural  innocence with pretty pictures  of happy children frolicking  in the hay or playing with cute  ibaby animals I came face to  'face with turning reality  during the second war, wording as a Land Girl and  [learning a wide variety of  skills.  A lot of romantic notions  were shattered and the "fun"  of haymaking was one of  them. It has to be one of the  dirtiest and often the most  aggravating chores of the  farmer's year, depending on  the weather and it's rarely one  gets the necessary weeks of  sunshine. When that last  field is cleared, the last  mow topped and one can wash  the itchy seeds and scratchy  bits of stalk from one's sweaty  skin for the last time, everyone gives a sigh of relief.  Wartime England's small  farmers mostly had tractors,  but hadn 't given up their work  horses because tractor-operated equipment was impossible to get, not being a  top military priority. Government depots had equipment  for rent, but everyone needed  it at once, so it was more  practical to convert the horse  mower with a tractor hitch,  the only difficulty being that  the operator could not reach  the lever to raise and lower  the blade, so someone had to  ride the mower. Telling me to  lift the blade smartly at the  end of each cut so as not to  disturb the previous swather  and to drop the blade again  neatly in the few inches before  the next cut, Bill put the  tractor in gear, calling over his  shoulder a last admonishment  to "watch out for an emmet's  batch, a chap was killed last  week at Somerton, broke his  neck when he was flung  against the tractor" and away  we went clickety-clacking a-  round the field.  What on earth was an  emmet's batch? I didn't have  a clue, but there were other  things to worry about first.  Bill was a perfectionist and a  stickler for having things done  right and if I wasn't to be  DISCOUNT PRICES  ��� Furniture    ��� T.V.'a & Stereos  ��� Appliances ��� Auto Stereos, etc.  SPECIAL $429.00  mcciary  Built-in  Dishwasher  ��� 3 Level Wash  ��� 4 Pushbuttons  ��� 7 Programs  ��� Pots & Pan Cycle  I  ��� Short Wash Cycle  ��� Rinse & Hold Cycl$  ��� Energy Saving Cycle  Gibsons 886-9733  (Next to Mr. Mikes)    Mon. to Sat. 9 am. - 5 pm.  capilano  college  PRINCIPLES OF SUPERVISION  For  a person who is or who  is about to become  a first line supervisor  What  this course provides participants with  an understanding of their role as a supervisor,  and helps them to realize the transition  from being responsible for  performing tasks to seeing to it that  others perform their tasks.

Neither of us  wanted to leave those tell-tale  tufts of grass where the blade  had missed, telling everyone  who passed by when the  field was cleared that we were  not very efficient. Later I could  watch the tall grass and  meadow flowers topple and  fall gently, a multi-hued satin  ribbon rolling out behind us  and wonder abolut the danger  lurking unseen in the grass.  After a couple of days of sun  it was time for the swather  turner, horse drawn, one road  well behind the rotating tines  which neatly lifted and flipped  the ribbons of grass. This was  Nobby's job, a small, neat-  footed work horse who could  keep up a brisk pace, when he  was so minded. But Nobby  liked to demonstrate his  independent spirit and didn't  like to work for strangers.  Riding, one was too far back  to be able to do more than  smack the reins ineffectually  on his back, so when Nobby  decided to take a rest, duckings, even swearing, got me  nowhere, until Bill cut me  a long withy switch with which  I could reach his ample rump I  Raking became my responsibility when Topsy, the  hunter mare who had seen  better days, and I developed a  good working relationship.  She too had a mind of her  own and we sometimes  battled royally. Trouble was,  the rake was temperamental  too, given to tip prematurely  if we went too fast. Topsy  hated to have to go back  and the madder she got the  faster she went, adding to our  problems. But we spent many  happy days together, alone  with the wind and the sky,  rolling the dry swathes into  windrows, or cruising around  after the loaders collecting the  last wisps.  After Bill taught me to load  the slippery stuff so that no  matter how rough or long the  journey the load wouldn't shift  I was promoted to loading.  The hours seemed to run  into each other, an unending  stream of empty wagons.  Almost as soon as you'd got  high enough above your crew  to take things relatively easy,  another empty wagon was  trundling throught the gate  and back one went to square  one. For a change, you could  ride the wagon home and pitch  the hay up to Bill on the mow.  But if the work was demanding and physically exhausting, it was exhilarating  to be part of a skilled team,  able to hold your own with the  rest, and there was always  the constant flow of warm,  friendly banter. If you worked  alone, you and the horse were  a team, and always you could  measure your progress and  take pride in your achievement.  One year, we had an  Italian POW to help with the  'haying and I'll never forget  the delight of riding home  across the fields and along the  tree-arched lanes, high atop  the last load, watching the  long shadows cast by the  setting sun, while Pietro,  sitting on the shafts, sang  Italian folk songs in a rich  tenor voice to the accompaniment of the rhythmic clip-clop  of Prince's hooves.  Oh, and the emmet batch?  Just an ant hill, batch being  the Somerset dialect word for  a rise in the ground, not high  enough to be called a hill.  And it really wasn't dangerous, unless of course the  safety catch on the hitch  failed to work.

Student Council elections  were held last month and  PHSS has a new Council.  The President for 1980-81  is Ginger Garkson, Vice-  President is Barb Szabados,  and Secretary-Treasurer is  Jenny Simes.  Council activities got off to  a good start on Hallowe'en,  when they sponsored an hour  of games for house points,  and gave prizes for costumes.  A good time was had by all  and photos of the afternoon  will appear in articles to come.  Many new clubs have been  formed this year and both they  and the old ones are doing  well. The Grad Club has had  various fund-raising activities,  and is now selling tickets for a  Christmas raffle on a Gingerbread House and a Ceramic  Christmas Tree.  A darkroom has been set up  in the mezzanine and the  Photography Club has started  developing pictures for the  annual.  The Catering Club lent their  services to a Teacher's In-  Service meeting and put on a  successful luncheon for the  teachers.  The Grade 12 girls have  formed a Big Sisters Club and  have each "adopted" a Grade  8 girl. Various activities have  been planned for the girls to  participate in together.  The Breakfast Club consists  of all the people too rushed  in the morning to eat before  they come to school. Delicious  hot muffins and hot chocolate  are available through the  work of Mrs. Ratzburg and  helpers.  The Art 12 class is working  on the Annual in class time so  that the Grads can have their  yearbooks by June.  Our Volleyball season has  now ended and all the teams  have enjoyed a competitive  season. Both the Senior  Boys and Girls made it to their  Zone finals.

Reflections  The grass stoops not  hy Vi'rn Giebresrht  "Thc grass stoops not, she  treads on it so light".  When soprano soloist Ingrid  Sudcrman steps on to thc stage  of thc Orpheum Theatre Dec. 5  for her role in the annual  performance of Handel's "Messiah" by the Vancouver Bach  Choir, I'll be in thc audience,  and I'll be remembering the  first time I heard her sing.  She joined my Grade 7 class  nl Mennonitc Educational  Institute a few months after  school resumed in thc fall, a  small, fragile-looking girl with  brown hair cut in bangs. She  had moved loCTcarbrook from  Winkler. Manitoba, with her  parents, three older sisters and  three younger brothers. Her  last name was Sawat/ky then.  There was nothing outstanding about her; at least we didn't  think so until we noticed during  the daily chapel periods that  she possessed an uncommonly  lovely voice. As Christmas  approached, word gol around  that she had volunteered tosing  a solo at the school concert.  Each grade hail to contribute to  the concert and as the youngest  students of the school, which!  went up to Grade 1.1. wc were  proud and excited to have her  represent us.  I was one of the little Grade  7's chosen to hand out programs to the rows of students  sitting in the creaky wooden  chairs. Il was scary, walking up  and down the aisles of the  cement-floored gym, certain  that each of the 550 students  was watching me. I couldn't  imagine anyone, especially a  girl from my class, singing a  solo in front of the whole  school.  Her solo was one of the first  items on the program. For  some reason I was backstage  when Ingrid stepped out to face  Ihe audience. She didn't seem  nervous at all: the songbook  didn't tremble in her handsand  her sieps were steady. Everyone's attention was on Ihe little  girl in Ihe simple black dress.  She nodded at ihe pianist.  "Oh. holy night. Ihe stars are  brightly shining, it is Ihe night  of the dear Savior's birth'..."she  began, and right away I could  tell she would sail through the  Ming with ease. She smiled as  she sang and swayed Ihe  songbook gently to give her  rhythm and when she soared up  to the high notes on the  crescendo there wus a murmur  nl awe rustling through the  uudiencc. "Oh holy night, oh  night divine!" she concluded  with a triumphant little flour  ish, then bowed and walked off  the stage to enormous applause.  We congratulated her shyly  backstage, still shivering from  the goosebumps her performance had created. Ingrid was  the toast of the class for weeks  and quickly become one of the  most popular students. In time  her gift seemed less remarkable, or at least we didn't make  as much fuss over her, but  whenever we heard her sing, we  were transfixed.  I sat in front of her in Grade 8  and again in Grade 12, amused  hcr(l think) with my droll jokes  and learned to know her quite  well over the years. She could  put on a regal, imperious air  and there was at times a  stubborncss about her that put  people off but what 1 remember  best is the happy, light feeling  she communicated when she  sang. "The grass stoops not, she  treads on it so light - Shakespeare" is thc quotation beside  her picture in the ME1 yearbook, and it's a fitting one.  Ing. id continued singing  after high school, studying in  Winnipeg, Germany and other  places, performing for CBC  radio and television, winning a  regional Metropolitan Opera  competition in Seattle and an  audition in New York, taking  solo parts with various choirs  in Vancouver, touring with  Hortulani Musicae.  When she showed up at her  "home" church in Clearbrook,  it was not uncommon for her to  called upon for an impromptu number or two. I recall being  disappointed on some of these  occasions; her voice was strong  and lively but her delivery was  too fancy, it seemed, for the  hymns she sang. Perhaps I  expected her to always sing  with thc charming simplicity of  a girl of 12.  It's been several years since I  last heard Ingrid sing, although  I occasionally meet her and her  husband Ed, another former  classmate who's a lawyer in  Vancouver. When she performs in the "Messiah" concert  Dec. 5, I'm hoping the joy of  singing is still evident in her  face and in her voice, as it was  the first time I heard her. It  would be wonderful to learn  that some things don't change.  Children suffer  from government cuts  by Don Lockstead  MLA. Mackenzie  Some of the implications of  the minister of finance's staffing freeze are now being felt in  very real human terms.  Unfortunately it is children  who are suffering most as a  result of cut-backs in social  services, health, education, and  the Attorney General's department.  In a memorandum dated  September 2. 1980. the deputy  minister of human resources  .pells out the agreement he has  negotiated with treasury board  which exempts the ministry  from the current staffing freeze.  In return for thisexemption the  ministry has agreed to make a  salary saving of $.1 million. This  means that the ministry will  maintain 100 unfilled vacant  positions. The ministry has also  agreed to cut $100,000 from its  budget for services to families  and children.  The result of this agreement  has been that regions such as  Vancouver have been told not  lo fill essential positions. Staff  members are being transferred  from olher regions to fill  special services such as the  program to assist juvenile  prostitutes in downtown Vancouver. Three of Vancouver's  MACHINCRX  Steam Cleaning ��� Painting  COAST POWER CLEANING  885-9316  human resources social workers who work exclusively with  teenagers at high risk have  submitted their resignations.  Services to children in the  Vancouver area are deteriorating and the increasing lack of  resources is causing resentment  and frustration among staff in  the ministries.  The minister of human  ���^sources said that the ministry  would practice restraint by  halting travel for seminars and  would delay upgrading plans  within the ministry. She said  lhat none of her programs  already begun would be cut  back.  The reality is that services  have been curtailed. There are  no counselling or education  programs to deal with teenage  mothers, in spite of a recent  report by the Social Planning  and Review Council of B.C.,  which revealed a ii per cent  increase in pregnancies among  girls 14 and under in B.C.  during the last seven years.  Members of the child abuse  team say that there is no  comprehensive program in  B.C. to respond to thc needs of  sexually abused children and  their families.  If the government is interested in spending less of the  taxpayers' money there are  plenty of wasteful and extravagant programs Ihey could cut  such as government advertising, B.C. Government News  and studies of costly tunnels  and dams.  The result of the government's policy of cutting back  on the necessities so they'll have  more money to spend on frills  has meant needless heartache  to families and is unfair to  children who urgently need  these community services.

Hypnosis and brainpower  Is hypnosis the key to  developing new abilities, speeding up learning, or developing  ESP?  Scientists tell us that 10% of  the activity of the mind is on a  conscious level, while 90% is  unconscious activity. Much of  this larger portion is unused  potential.  A great deal of evidence is  building which indicates that  hypnosis may be an invaluable  tool for unlocking much of  man's untapped potential.  For over twenty years the  British Medical Association  and thc Canadian Medical  Association have officially  recognized hypnosis as a  therapeutic tool.  Jack Blackwell, president of  Alpha Self Development Clin-  icsandthe 1980president ofthe  Canadian Hypnosis Association says: "Clinical Hypnotherapists are certainly not stage  magicians with crimson capes  and swaying pendulums. They  are serious practitioners of  techniques which help people  change habits and develop  skills.  "Hypnotism has seemed in  the past as something very  mysterious, or even dangerous.  To-day it is much better  understood and in many ways  extremely useful."  Mr. Blackwell adds: "When  hypnotized, one does not  normally fall asleep nor lose  control of oneself. On the  contrary, it is a state of  intensely focused concentration, similar to many normal  states such as daydreaming or  being absorbed in a movie or a  book.  "During hypnosis we are  fully aware of our surroundings  but we are so completely  relaxed that constructive suggestions are readily accepted by  the subconscious mind."

After discovering deeply buried emotional or  psychological problems, a  therapist can bring them into  conscious awareness where  they can be dealt with.  Sheila Ostrander and Lynn  Schroeder in their-book "Su-  perlearning", discuss the many  applications of hypnosis to  stimulate supermemory, improve physical performances,  learn languages and develop  creativity.  Fear of hypnosis is generally  caused by a lack of knowledge  of how hypnosis works.  After first hand experience,  many practitioners of hypnosis  and self-hypnosis are convinced that rather than something to fear, hypnosis is  enjoyable, rewardingand easily  understood.

Let us all  celebrate wilh some "hamelyfare". I  discovered a poem the olher day  containing the momentous line "The  hailsome parrilch, chief of Scotia's  food". I, however, have been doing a  little research, and whatever Burns  and Burnside may think, Ihere is  more to Scottish food lhan porridge  and mince 'n' tallies.  I have discovered lhal Ihere are  dishes wilh marvelous names���  Tannelagie Scones and Clootie  Dumplings; Cullen Skink and Crap-  pil Held; frittered Haddies and  Parkin Bree.  I discovered, too, lhal Ihe Scottish  reputation for frugality is well  founded. The Scots have a won-  dious tnoclivily for substitutions.  St olc/l Woodcock, for instance, is  scrumhled eggs; Mock crab is a mix  of eggs, cheese and tomatoes;  Fitless cock is a mixture of oatmeal,  suet and onion shaped to resemble a  chicken and steamed till done. I feel I  would think I'd been done if I was  served such a thing! However, lest  you think I'm just up lo my kilt in  mockery here is one of those  recipes   and it's delicious.  Scotch Woodcock  4 eggs pinch of salt  3 tablespoons cream    pepper  3 tablespoons butter  4 slices hot buttered toast  2 tablespoons anchovy paste  8 anchovy fillets  Melt Ihe butter and scramble the  eggs, cream, sail & pepper in it till  lightly done. Spread Ihe toast with  anchovy paste. Top each slice of  toast wilh scrambled eggs and  garnish with anchovy fillets. Serves  4.  In these cold winter days one  needs a little something to warm  one's old body up. There is, of  course, mall whisky. A Utile of lhal  and one would be quite prepared to  make a hatted kit, an ancient  Highland dish where one had to milk  a cow directly into a bowl of warm  buttermilk. It might, though, be  nutritionally better io warm oneself  up with a bowl of soup.  ;,. i'^  Cock a leckie Soup  1 boiling fowl  3 quarts cold water  1/2 cup barley  1 tablespoon salt  2 tablespoons grated carrot  6 leeks  2 tablespoons chopped parsley  Place the bird in Ihe waler and  bring to the boil. Skim. Add leeks,  barley and salt & turn heat down lo  low. Cook for aboul I 1/2 hours.  Add the carrot and cook for a  further half hour or until the chicken  is absolutely tender. Remove the  bird, cool, then remove the skin and  bones and replace Ihe meat in the  soup. Reheat, check for seasoning  and add the ixirsley jusi before  serving.  I discovered in my research that  Saint Andrew is apparently revered  in Russia. My mind, ever twisting  and turning, pondered over the  strange bolshevik tendencies of  certain Scots I have known.

If it wasn't selling a  product, it was sillfrig an idea. It's one of the most  satisfying pursuits, and one which develops an acute  sense of meeting the other person's needs. Without that  sense, one is doomed to failure.  Unfortunately, there are fartoo many out there selling,  or trying to sell, who fail to realize the importance of  discovering his/her would-be client's real needs���and  then concentrating on those needs, and not something  else.  Once a purchase is made the client looks to  satisfaction, regardless of how little or how much was  paid. It is this after-purchase satisfaction that leads to  repeat business, word-of-mouth referrals, and continued growth.  We try to meet our customer's needs in a thousand or  more different ways. Some may be small or insignificant,  but if they are important to our customer, they become  an important part of our sales program. We try to run our  business in a manner that should make our customers  feel we want to be of service���that we need their  business.  We encourage people to ask us, if they don't see what  they want. If we don't have it and can get it���we will.  Many items in our store have become popular because  someone asked us to look into the possibility of getting  them.  Selling successfully then is meeting the needs of our  customers. We try to tailor our business to this basic  philosophy.  The other is, of course, that we will  unconditionally guarantee satisfaction, or money is  !^ cheerfully refunded.

The Bible  account leaves much to the  imagination, but whatever they  were up to that displeased Ihe  Lord so mightily. I am fairly  confident thai neither city had  any edge, as far as wickedness  was concerned, on Hull, Quebec during Ihe lime lhal I  frequented lhal wide-open city  in the years IW7-I9.16.  If one were lo use Hull as a  criterion, one would he led to  imagine lhat all the nubile  young females had left the rural  areas of Quebec and flocked to  that city to join the ranks ofthe  scarlet sisterhood. While there-  was certainly no lack of talent  in the metropolis of Montreal,  ii was not so noticeable,  possibly because of lhal city's  size. Although I never heard of  an actual house of ill-fame in  Hull, thc taverns, bars and  clubs were literally bursting at  the seams wilh young girls of  every shape and size not only  willing but anxious to perform  all the tricks of the trade for a  price and a very reasonable one  al that, due no doubt to the  keen competition and numbers  involved.  My favourite assignation  spot was the Madelon, bul  there were many others lo  choose from including the  Ottawa House, the Frontcnac.  Che/ Henri*s and. last bul by  far not least, the Central Hotel  which had the added advantage  of slaying open on Sundays.  While some of the places  mentioned could be described  as taverns, inasmuch as beer  and ale were the main beverages; yet they were nol exactly  that as they were also licensed  lo sell wines and spirits.  Perhaps clubs would be a more  appropriate word as mosl of  them were situated not on  street level but on Ihe second  float and. ai times, it was a  trifle hazardous entering them  as one might be in collision on  the stairs wilh a flying object  that proved on closer flfepec-  tion to be a recent patron ofthe  establishment who had in some  way broken the rules (or gone  broke) and was now in the  process of being ejected by a  huge and hairy bouncer.  As I have remarked previously the Madelon (until it  burned dwn to the ground - I  can't remember the date) \��as  the place I mosl frequently  visited but thc Central was  definitely the "in" place on the  Sabbath and, unlike the others,  had corridors branching out  Irom ihe main drinking room  which were lined with doors  leading to small bedrooms or  cubicles where Ihe actual  business was transacted. It also  provided, along wiih the beer,  free snacks of cheese and  biscuits. Cold cuts, pickles and  potato salad were available on  request for a minimal sum and,  in view of all the strenuous  activity going on in and out of  the rooms. I think one will  agree lhat it was extremely  thoughtful and considerate of  ihe management to ensure that  keeping their customers' strength up was essential if he was  intending to stay there for any  length of time.  There was also the Standish  Hall (the only place of it's kind  in the cily) where the refined  and respectable gathered. One  summer Sunday afternoon,  Ihree sheets to the wind, I  wandered in there by mistake  and I can still see the elegant  ladies in their lacy frocks and  floppy hats, daintily sipping lea  with Iheir escorts under large  umbrellas in Ihe garden and the  icy stares they gave me when I  sat down at a table and ordered  a "Boilermaker" (a shot of rye  with a shorl beer for a chaser).  Surprisingly il was served lo me  but I only stayed there long  enough to down it and I am  sure ihere was a sigh of relief  when I left.  With all these attractions  going it is therefore understandable that in the spring of  1929, alter my winter in the  camps of Ciillis Bros. Lumber  Co. ended. I never made il as  far as Montreal and. not only  lhat. my stake disappeared in  very short order once I had  crossed over thc Chaudiere  Bridge into Hull. Not only did I  have a rip-roaring lime over  there bul I also took the worst  beating I have ever experienced  in my life at the handstand feet)  of Iwo French Canadian taxi  drivers in an alley near the  Central Hotel. It took me  almost a month to recover from  the contusions and cracked ribs  I sustained when they "put the  bools to me", but perhaps it  was a lesson that had to be  learned sooner or later. Never  stick your nose into someone  else's business unless you have  good reason to and. above all,  if you must get involved in an  affair of (hat kind make certain  you are reasonably sober or.  better still, havca length of lead  pipe up your sleeve!  After a short stay with, my  friend Mogens Jensen in  Woodroffe I maflsSgetlTo (Tnd  mysell a job on a farm out at  Manotick. Ontario and 1  stayed there, wilh Ihe exception  of the odd weekend off. until  the fall when I again went up  inlo the woods for what turned  out to be my last winter in the  lumbercamps.  Thc farmer. Fcrg. Halpcnny,  had a fairly large dairy farm  just outside Manotick village  on what was actually an island,  bounded on Ihe one side by the  Rideau River and on the olher  by the canal of the same name.  He was a hard man lo work for  inasmuch as he expected his  hired man lo work as hard as he  did, but he paid the then  unprecedented wage of $41) per  month while mosl ofthe other  farmers had men working for  them for $25 lo $.10. or less if  they could gel away with it.  I really worked lhat summer  haying and harvesting, in  addition to all the olher chores  that had to he done on a dairy  farm of lhal size. I cannot  truthfully say lhat I enjoyed it  but I have nothing bul good to  say about old Fergie. Not only  did he treat me well but I had a  comfortable room of my own  in the big farmhouse and the  food, cooked by his wife and  eldest daughter Annahclle, was  out of this world both in quality  and quantity. They had two  other girls. Jane who worked  for the Civil Service in Ottawa  and was rather cool and  detached in hermannerandlhc  youngest Louie, a dark-haired  vixen who. al eighteen, had just  finished high school. Needless  to say I had "designs" on her  right from thc start but my  fantasies of getting her up in the  haymow and making passionate love to her were just that,  "pipe dreams" which were so  far removed from reality it  would have been belter if I had  never indulged in them at all.  They were a closely knit  family and while old Fergie did  not attend church, claiming he  was too busy - nor did I. Mrs.  H. was very religious and had  the girls there every Sunday.  She not only gave me some  stern lectures on the subject of  , my non-attendance but she  '''walche'd'Tier yotfogest daughter  like a hawk. I never did get  anywhere wilh Lottie, although 1 certainly think I  deserved an "A" mark for  trying!  Weather  It's too early to talk about a  record for November, we've  had over 22 cm of rainfall  and the 1975 record stands at  27.79 cm - but it's going to be  a wet one. Thursday night's  downpour netted us 4 cm in  the 14 hour period. Otherwise  it's been mild, with overnight  lows of 4-6C and daytime  high temperatures of 9.C.  Where did that ball go? Although Elphinstone won this round of  the Cougar's tip-off basketball tournament, Sechelt did have its  moments, as is shown in this steal. The junior division was won by  Brackcndale, and Sutherland took Ihe honours in the senior  division.  Antacids useful  In John Shaske  Millions of dollars arc spent  on antacids used for upset  stomachs. Although there are  many products, most contain  the following active ingredients.  Sodium bicarbonate is a fast  but short acting antacid. The  problem is it contains a lot of  sodium which should be avoided especially in cases of high  blood pressure, heart disease or  kidney problems. Therefore all  effervescent sodium bicarbonate products such as Alka-  Seltzer should be used only  occasionally if at all.  Magnesium hydroxide is an  effective antacid. The most  bothersome effect is diarrhea.  Aluminum hydroxide is not  as good as magnesium hydroxide but does cause constipation. This constipating effect is  usually overcome by combining equal amounts of magnesium and aluminum. The  resulting effective combination  is in antacids such as Mylanla  Maalox��, Maalox Plus*-, and  Diovol��.  Calcium Carbonate is an  inexpensive rapid acting antacid. However it can cause  constipation and an increase in  gastric secretions a few hours  after ingestion resulting in Ihe  user taking more antacid  (Turns)��.  Antacids are available as  tablets and liquids primarily.  Thc liquids are more effective  because of the small suspended  particles making it easier to  mix with the gastric contents.  Dosage recommendations  for antacids depend on which  antacid is used, its neutralizing  capacity and the frequency of  meals.  Antacids are useful if thc  right product is used properly.  Ask your pharmacist to help  you select thc correct product.  Construction on the Driftwood Inn, a Motel/Restaurant complex at the foot of Trail Avenue will be  completed in December.

The golden age, bantam, peewee tournament at Gibsons Lanes illustrated this. Results will be  in next week's Strikes and Spares.  Cozy Court  Bruins lose  in Squamish  Saturday evening, the Cozy  Court Bruins travelled to  Squamish and were defeated  9 to 4 by the Whistler Winter-  hawks.  At the Sechelt Arena, the  Sechelt A's upset the league  leading Roberts Creek 6 to  5, in an exciting contest.  The win moved the A's into  sole possession of second  place, one point behind  Roberts Creek.  This week's league action  sees a Tuesday evening  contest between the Bruins  and the Gibsons Realty  Rangers. On the weekend  there will be two interlocking  games, with the Sechelt A's  hosting the league leading  Squamish Truckers in the  8 o'clock game. Sunday  morning November 30th has  the Cozy Court Bruins playing  the Truckers in an 11:45 a.m.  game.  The motels in (iibsons were full last weekend, as curlers from out of town came to play in the Men's  Open Spiel. Results will appear in next week's paper.  by Bod Molcaater  We have a good contingent  of Y.B.C. Bowlers and most  times they don't get much ink.  We'll rectify that a bit this  week. Due to a change in the  format for the Master-Senior-  Junior-Bantam Tournament,  we were able to hold the first  round at our own lanes.  Usually we join in with the  North Shore bowlers in order  to have enough entries for the  house round. The teams consist of a master, senior,  junior and bantam bowler.  The tournament was held  last Sunday with eight teams  taking part. The winners were  Pat Prest, Steve Partridge,  Arlene Mulcaster and Craig  Kincaid. They rolled 448 pins  over average. Second place  went to yours truly, Nora  Richler, Myra Williams and  Paul Reed. We bowled 422  pins over average.  We try not to put any  pressure on the Y.B.C. bowlers during their league year as  we feel that they should 'like'  to bowl rather than 'have'  to bowl. We try to teach them  the basics and let them take  it from there. We were very  pleased with the way they  bowled in this tournament and  it's gratifying to the instructors as it shows that some of  the instruction is sinking in.  Paul Reed's average is 125  and he bowled games of  223-183 and 160, Myra Williams had two games of 176,  Steve Partridge 212-628,  Bruce Russell 297-754, Sean  Tetzlaff 272-592, Michele Solinsky 298-657. The master  instructors did all right too.  Pat Prest 277-778, Freeman  Reynolds 355-896 and Don  Slack 255-752.  We all enjoyed bowling with  the kids and I hope our  winning team goes all the  way.  In league action, some of  the higher scores.

Inglis  The recent election of Ronald Reagan as president ofthe  United States has been hailed  as a victory of the "Moral  Majority," which provides a  paradoxical state of affairs.  In the first place, it would be  the first time in world history  when the people of good moral  fibre were in a majority, if the  title of thc group is accepted as  fact.  This, in itself, would mean  that the United Stales has a  force for good in Ihe country,  and in the scat of the highest  office in thc land which is  espousing a life-style of high  moral order, and would surely  mean that thc 240-odd million  people would be well on the  way toward establishing an  example for the whole world to  follow.  The problem which arises is  - by whose standards are those  morals evaluated?  In a recent television debate,  which turned at times into a  haranguing match, the leader  of the Moral Majority, advocated thc Bible as the  criterion of morals, and suggested the Moral Majority was  following the direction of  scripture in its policies.  In the name of the Bible, he  said he would not have involved thc U.S. in the recent,  lamentable Vietnam war, but  A victory of the  "Moral Majority" ?  once the U.S. was in there they  should have piled on their  strength and won the war, no  matter what it cost!  He also said the U.S. should  not have given back the  Panama Canal, but should  have used it as a base from  which is could keep any  countries in line, which were  threatening U.S. freedom!  He said unequivocally there  was no truth coming out of  Peking and Moscow, and both  thc Russians and Chinese  should be treated as completely  untrustworthy in all negotiations.  Arms treaties with Russia, he  said, were useless, and he  would not disarm the U.S., but  would build up the U.S.  strength to the point where it  could intimidate thc entire"  civilized world!  Somehow, thc paradox between biblical morals, which  advocate peaceful co-existence  between man and God. and  between man and his neighbours, and the stated preference toward the tactics of  world intimidation, seemed to  me to be a confused, if not  somewhat tenuous moral outlook.  It is too simplistic to say  there is any easy answer, in  applying biblical moral standards to the present world  scene, but it would seem to be  profitable to try.

We might get some clues  from Jesus' own words, "Render unto Caesar the things that '  are Caesar's, and unto God the  tilings that are God's." (Mark  12:17).  Jesus spoke these words in  answer to a trick question on  the part of scribes and Pharisees, who sought to trap him  into an answer that would  prove to be his downfall.  They were speaking in a time  when there were thousands of  Jews in underground revolt  against the Romans' taxes,  even though thc Jews were a  conquered people.  Maybe. some people would  not liketo hear that Jesus was a  politically-sensitive person, but  it is certain he was sensitive to  his people and his surroundings, and he knew that  resistance to the Roman taxes  could only end in a blood-bath,  which it truly did.  He also knew that all around  him he saw Jews, God's chosen  people, abusing one another,  stealing from widows and  orphans, allowing their own  people to starve in the midst of  plenty, and behaving cruelly  toward one another. (If this  sounds familiar, it is not purely  coincidental!)  So Jesus weighed thc needs  of the people, and he came out  with the inevitable conclusion  of a person of faith there  could be no comparison between God's law and man's law.  in its benefits!  And his answer was the  inevitable answer for a person  of faith comply with man's  law. and with God's law.  To the person of faith,  however. God's law must take  complete precedence, and this  would be the law of the twofold love- loving others because God first loved us.  Under this law. there would  seem to be little doubt thc  whole world is delinquent in  moral response, except for a  blessed minority those who  do try to live in response to  God's love, and to help their  fellow humans to a fuller life.  Judging by the avowed  policies of the U.S. Moral  Majority, thc person lollowing  this law of love would be pretty  stupid, and would surely be run  over and crushed by his  enemies, real or imagined.  This was the attitude ofthe  Jews in the Ist century-they  ignored Jesus'words and God's  law and they were almost wiped  off the face of thc earth by  man's law.  Maybe, considering the perilous state of life in so many  parts of the U.S. for so many  people, there is a great need for  some radical behaviour.  But it is more likely to come  from a faithful minority!  The sign outside St. Mary's Hospital indicates lhat major renovations are underway.

Order of the Eastern Star  The visit of Mrs. Irene  Finholm Worthy Grand Matron and Mr. Lewis Millin  Worthy Grand Patron of the  Grand Jurisdiction of British  Columbia and Yukon Order of  the Eastern Star to Mt.  Elphinstone Chapter #65 was  a very successful and happy  occasion.  Early afternoon saw Mrs.  Shirley Forshner Worthy Matron and Mr. Al Fox Worthy  Patron and their officers  exemplifying their work for  the Grand Matron and Patron  under the direction of the  Grand Lecturer Mrs. Violet  Merrick Past Grand Matron.  After a successful afternoon  session the officers and  members and their guests enjoyed a no-host dinner where  friendship and the hospitality  of Mt. Elphinstone Chapter  members contributed to the  success of the evening sessions.  In keeping with our fund  raising projects Cancer Convenor Mrs. Phyllis Pearson,  on behalf of the Chapter,  presented Mrs. Finholm with  a cheque to be used for Cancer  Research and dressings. The  Grand Matron thanked the  members   for   their   contri  bution and complimented the  Chapter on its very successful  Cancer Dressing Station and  was most impressed that it  was not only the women  members but also the males  who were responsible for its  success. Worthy Matron Shirley Forshner then presented  a Raggedy Ann Doll to be  given to the Children's Cancer  Centre in Vancouver. Her  second presentation to the  Grand Matron was a cheque  for her special Project. This  money will be added to all the  other contributions from Eastern Star Chapters throughout  B.C. and Yukon and given to  persons who are involved  in the fields of Religious  Training.  The Worthy Grand Matron  had the pleasure of dedicating  a new Eastern Star Emblem  which had been donated to  the Chapter by Jr. Past  Matron Mrs. Muriel Hutchinson, and gave a very interesting message titled "Follow  the Star".  The Worthy Grand Patron  Mr. Lewis Millin who was  introduced by Worthy Patron  Al Fox gave a very interesting message expanding on  the Follow the Star theme  He commented on how much  he enjoys visiting this chapter  and complimented Mrs. Caryl  Cameron on her beautiful  music.  The evening was completed  by a special message on  "Sermons we can see" by the  Worthy Grand Matron and her  special thanks to Worthy  Matron Mrs. Forshner and the  Chapter members for their  hospitality and courtesies.

The fisheries office in  Madeira Park called me on  Friday, to let me know to let  you know that there has been  another outbreak of paralytic  shellfish poisoning. This time  it's in Jervis Inlet at Nelson  Island.  The results of the test came  out on Friday last, so this is a  very recent outbreak and I'd  strongly advise you to buy  your oysters and clams in the  store rather than taking a  chance of picking any locally.  Cougar.  A cougar has been spotted  in the Crowe Road area of  Roberts Creek. The person  who reported it was a bit  late in taking in his goats  and the light from his flashlight showed one too many  animals on his property.  From what he said, the cat  was not in any particular  hurry to leave, but after about  five minutes of the intrusion  of a human with a bright light,  it decided to vacate the area.  It appears that it was full  grown and looked to be in  good condition. There have  been no reports of it causing  any trouble, but it would  probably be a good idea to  keep temptation out of its way.  Goals or oil.  I see from a press clipping  that Gulf (Canada?) Ltd. have  received a two year extension  on their oil lease, so that they  can do a $100,000.00 study to  find out if their drilling will  kill the animals. If I sound a  wee bit flippant, I don't mean  to be. I think it's admirable  that this type of study should  be undertaken, especially  when they say that they may  abandon the lease if the  results are negative towards  the welfare of the goats,  but hold on, there is a kicker.  If they abandon their lease,  they will be seeking compensation from the government,  Why?  The oil companies are  private enterprise like anyone  else. Not only are they private  enterprise (mostly foreign  owned, but they are creaming  profits in a style that could  only be equalled by outright  pillage. They have the nerve  after this to ask for government compensation if another  area that they can make a  bundle from doesn't pan out.  Long live Petrocan.  Ling closure.  Here's an update from  Fisheries and Oceans on the  ling cod closure.  It will extend until April  14th, 1981, for sports fishing  and either the 1st or the 14th  of April, 1981, for commercial  fishing, depending on the area  you fish.  A couple of interesting facts  from the news release. Prior  to spawning, the males move  in to shallow water and lay  out territories which they  defend, this usually happens  around mid-November. From  December to March, the  females move up to shallow  water and lay more than half  a million eggs each, sometimes in intertidal waters.  It takes between five and  eleven weeks for the eggs to  hatch. It's the job of the male  to stand guard for that period.  According to fisheries, studies  show that the guarding of the  eggs by the male is essential  to their survival. So don't be  too put out if you are restricted  to rock cod and red snapper  for the duration, leave the  proud father to protect his  brood so that we can all  benefit from it a few years  down the road.  Winter.  Coming home on the first  ferry on Saturday morning,  I was greeted at Langdale by  ice-covered puddles. It's a  pre-winter reminder to drive  with extra care, especially in  shaded areas on the highway  where the sun doesn't reach  until late in the morning.  This was brought into  graphic focus for me, last  winter on my favourite nasty  stretch of highway near the  Pen Hotel. I just about had my  day ruined when I came  around the corner and saw a  truck full of beer cases lying  on its side on the highway.  I breathed easier when I saw  that the bottles were empty,  but the image remains with  me. Drive carefully this winter  and save yourself for the wild  life.  Offer no prayer for the sprayer  A November 13th release  from the NDP is right after my  own heart.  Barbara Wallace, MLA for  Cowichan-Malahat is questioning the use of Krenitex F,  2,4-D and Amine 80 for weed  species control in the Duncan  and Lake Cowichan area.  Closer to home, the forestry  hope to use Krenite in the  coming year in the Skwawka  River area at the head of  Jervis.  Wallace feels that although  tests have shown that Krenite  is less toxic than 2,4-D and  2,4,5-T as a brush control  agent, it has been found to be  acutely toxic to rainbow fry  and could pose a threat to  'sensitive life stages of salmonid fish residing within or  adjacent to the spray areas'.  She continues, citing a  September report from B.C.  Research, "The report found  that, despite the restriction  from aerial application of  brush control herbicides in the  vicinity of large water bodies,  dilute concentrations of these  chemicals have been found in  waterways and lakes following  spray operations, as a result of  direct application to small  streams of leaching of sprayed  herbicide during rain runoff".  "There are alternative methods of removing unwanted  plants which do not involve  spraying with chemicals,"  she said. "A manual method  of control would not only  provide seasonal employment,  but would also provide an  energy resource. Firewood is  an expensive and much sought made   of   this   increasingly hope that if and when her  after commodity these days, valuable   fuel   source,   es- party comes into power, she  It  seems  wasteful,   not   to pecially in the light of findings re���e���!'^.!,erffi"*11^mJ  .....           , of this report .

Allowable forestry cuts set  Announcement of the annual allowable cuts for the five  Timber Supply Areas within  the Vancouver Forest Region  was made November 14 by  Regional Manager, Don  Grant. Taking effect on  January 1st, 1981, the allowable cuts total 7,500,000 cubic  metres, made up as follows:  FraserTSA 1,700,000  Quadra TSA 2,000,000  KingcomeTSA        1,700,000  SooTSA 700,000  Nootka TSA 1,400,000  Cited as "a logical harvest  rate objective for the initial  five-year period in the supply  areas", the AACs are set by  the Chief Forester based on  recommendations presented  by the Regional Manager,  The Region's suggestions are  made after license holders  have had an opportunity to  comment on the supply  analysis. The analysis of all  five areas was made public in  early August and distributed  throughout the industry.

My first load  down that billy-goat trail was a  runaway and I thought I was a  goner. I also thought it would  end our logging on the mountain with that three ton Ford  truck and six ton trailer. This  was before the days of 'Jake'  brakes and compression re-  larders and there was just not  enough braking power on the  little outfit to haul a payload  down that grade and the 12  miles to the log dump. Again  Brown came up with the  answer.  Bert and Brown had been  following me down the hill to  see how the outfit handled the  grade. As I began to pick up  speed I was forced into higher  gears to avoid blowing the  engine apart. By the time I hit  the bottom I was really travelling, but wasable to hold her on  the road until I came to an  adverse and was able to stop. A  few minutes later the boys  appeared on the run, sure that I  was going to wind up in the  cactus.  There were three pairs of  shaking hands that twisted up  smokes and rested at the side of  the road while we cogitated the  problem. That's when Brown  came up with his little speech.  "On a side road about two  miles from here lays a big old  skyline that must be three  thousand feet long. If we can  drag that thing to the foot of  the hill with the log truck, with  the help of the yarder wc can  pull one end to the top. We can  hang that old tommy moore  block we ain't usin' for anything else, on a stump at the top  of the hill. By pulling the bight  through the block you can pull  one end down until the other,  end is at the top. On the next  load you can pull the other end  down. That ought'a hold you  back"!  I was still a bit dubious about  lining back up that hill, but  after listening to his plan,  emphasized by gestures as he  went through the motions of  dragging the skyline, hanging  the block and pulling the line  down the hill, I was sure that he  had mesmerized me into complete confidence of his scheme.  By the time I had returned  from dumping the load at the  saltchuck, the boys had the  skyline eye on the road ready to  hook to the truck, had checked  its total length for hangups,  and we were ready to go. lt  look a few good rares to get the  line in motion but it wasn't too  long until we had it up the hill,  rigged through the block and  ready for a try. The weight of  lhat line was about equal to the  load of logs so it was a slow,  easy trip down the hill. I was  given a signal when the other  eye was at the top and 1 was  able to cut loose and was on my  own. Marking the spot so I  could unhook without help on  future loads, I headed for the  beach.  My thoughts were on Brown  for awhile. There was no doubt  that he was having as much  influence on my continuing in  thc logging business as  Rat  OPEN 7 DAYS A WEEK  Mon.-Sat.: 9 a.m. -6 p.m  Fridays until 9 p.m.  Sundays: Noon til 4 p.m.  FREE  PRESCRIPTION  DELIVERY  within the boundaries of  the Village of Gibsons  to all Seniors  65 years or over.

And so it went for the next  couple of months. We had our  good days and bad with the  weather; one week dry and  cold; the next warmer but wet.  Now and then a heavy sou'  caster would hit us for a few  days, then swing around to the  nor'west and dump a skiff of  snow on us, a fore-runner of  what was to come.  Finally, after more than two  months of slugging away at  repairing the gunny-bag yarder, splicing and patching the  worn out rigging, trying to keep  the road open for just a few  more loads, we were forced to  give up.  The end came when a strap  broke between the skyline eye  and thc trailer, just as I had  broken over the top of the hill  with a pretty good load. That  little beast took off like a  banshee and gave me a ride  which made the first runaway a  tame one.  By the time I got her stopped  a fender had been torn off, a  tire cut and blown, and every  part of that little outfit shaken  up, including me. That was  enough for Bert. He had plans  of taking his truck to town and  haul sawdust for the winter and  he wanted to take her in one  piece.  He had invited me to join  him and then come back in the  spring and continue logging,  but by this time I had other  plans. I didn't tell Bert at the  time 'cause I was sure that he  would have thought me crazy!  We climbed the hill for the  last time to drain the old  machine, hang the rigging in  the air for the winter, and  gather up loose tools and  equipment so we would be able  to And them in the spring. We  should have been sad about  having to quite, but strangely  enough, we seemed to feel like  the farmer who has harvested  his crop, put up his winter hay,  and just planned on spending  the winter feeding thc live  stock. I'm sure some of that  feeling was generated by old  Perse.  As the late fall days had  grown shorter, Perse had  talked around the noon fire  about how Ted, his Blue Tick  hound, had kept beans in the  pot, meat on the table, and the  wolf from the door during  many a long, lean winter. He  was a proud man. He would  rather suffer and freeze  through a tough winter, chasing his dog and the occasional  panther for the $20. bounty,  than to beg at the Indian  agency or the white man's relief  office for handouts. A little  cash for staples and a grouse or  deer for table meat kept him  proud and free. It looked like  another of those winters for  Brown. The only difference  was, he would have company.  Me!  To be continued.  Pender Wildlife  November rains didn't keep  them away from the Pender  Harbour and District Wildlife  Society's meeting on November 18. Twenty-nine  people were present, including our youngest wildlife,  seven-year-old Jenny Thi-  bodeau.  President Ron Malcolm  sped us through the business,  reporting on the society's  current projects. He said that  the rifle range near Lion's  Park will be completed by  November 29, after which a  turkey shoot is being planned.  Also, he told us that Dr. Bill  Lawrenuk has looked into local  reports regarding the lack of  salmon spawning above Highway 101 on Anderson Creek.  Plans are now underway for  the Society, together with the  Department of Highways and  the Department of Fisheries,  to provide the salmon access  to the valuable gravel above  the road. Dr. Lawrenuk is  also organizing some winter  workshops where we will  build geese nesting and bird  boxes, among other things.  Edith Daly reported on the  John Daly Memorial Park in  Kleindale, which is currently  tied up in governmental  details, but which will eventually provide an excellent  area to observe the annual  salmon run. Bill McNaughton  told about his investigations  into the CORE Hunter Training Program. It is hoped  that in the near future such a  program can be started in this  area.  Elections were held with  Ron Malcolm remaining as  president, Murray Mark persuaded into the duties of  secretary-treasurer, and Pam  Hedderson, Ray Phillips, Bill  McNaughton, Bill Lawrenuk  and Solveigh Harrison staying  on as directors. Edith Daly  resigned; however, she is not  lost to us, as she plans to  follow the John Daly Park  through to completion and  also to continue bringing  those wonderful lemon  squares to our meeting. Pam  Hedderson, retiring secretary-  treasurer, deserves a big  pat on the back for her untiring work since this society's  inception.  Then came our highlight of  the evening - Katie Angermeyer and Tony Greenfield  of the Sechelt Marsh Society  presented us with their  delight; birding. First Kate  gave us a slide presentation  showing why people "bird".  We didn't need much convincing after we saw her  brilliant slides, taken all over  the world, of the marvels one  can see, both birdlike and  otherwise. Tony closed the  show with a talk on birds, full  of interesting tidbits such as  the following: that there are  8,919 species of birds in the  world today, 500 in Canada  and a grand 189 on the  Sunshine Coast; that the hot  spot for bird observation  here is Mission Point; and that  one of the most exciting  birding experiences is out on  the open sea. I'm sure this  presentation left most of us  feeling richer. Thank you,  Tony and Katie.  A film about canvasback  ducks brought this enjoyable  evening to a close. Our next  meeting is scheduled for  December 16. Everyone is  welcome.

Mr. Stephen, two of your  men from Vancouver came to  my place to check on that  same application. My wife and  I both made life miserable  for them for a half hour,  but they would not go and  check that bridge for themselves, saying instead they  would send their superiors  up in a few days, which  they did.

S.R. Rocky Mountain  Editor:  It is a good idea for the  Sunshine Coast Arts Council's  Visual Arts Committee to  provide periodical film programming which caters fori  minority interest in film as  a serious art form. Not everybody wishes to have a steady  diet of the latest excesses of  Cheeeh and Chong or the  perennial scenes of gratuitous  gore and simulated sex which  seem essential to box-office  success for the great majority  of modern movies. It has  almost invariably been financially catastrophic for the  management of the Twilight  Theatre to book any films  which fall outside these  guidelines however much they  may wish to do so. One has  only to recall the pitiful  attendances for the hilarious  situation comedy La Cage box  Folles (Birds of a Feather)  and Bread and Chocolate  or the termination of the  Kwahtahmoss Film Society's  programming to realise that  there are not yet enough  people on the Sunshine Coast  willing to support and make  financially viable film programming other than the  usual pap dished out by  Hollywood.  It is also a good idea for the  Visual Arts Committee to avail  itself of the travelling film  programme offered by Vancouver's Pacific Cinematheque. While this does  deprive the Committee of  individual choice, it saves the  vast amount of labour which  individual choice involves.  It is a pity, therefore, that  the Committee has been  embarrassed by poor planning  on the part of Pacific Cinematheque   caused   by   having  CLASSIFIED NOTE  their films too tightly scheduled which has resulted in the  non-arrival of the last two  fdms programmed. During the  five years of its operation  with well over one hundred  feature films programmed,  the Kwahtahmoss Film Society had to change only two  features which had been  booked and confirmed and one  of these was a change of  date due to a power failure.  Pacific Cinematheque is  generously funded by various  government grants and the  people who work for them  are paid for the sort of work  undertaken on a voluntary  basis by film societies and  other organizations devoted  to the promotion of film as  an art form. It is not unreasonable therefore to expect better service than the  Arts Council is currently  receiving.  I hope that more people  than were at the Aits Centre  last Tuesday will support the  endeavours of the Arts Council 's Visual Arts Committee  in spite of the difficulties  which they have encountered  through no fault of their own.  Of course it was disappointing  not to have been able to  review the marvellously funny  Mr. Hulot'a Holiday but I did  not lose the opportunity to see  again Don't Shoot the Piano  Player, Francois Truffaut's  poignant second feature film  portraying the life of a concert  pianist eking out an existence  as a bar-room entertainer due  to force of circumstances.  Fritz Lang's 1945 Hollywood film Scarlet Streets is  the next feature scheduled for  screening at the Arts Centre  at 8:00 p.m. on Tuesday,  December 2. Hopefully Pacific  Cinematheque's losing streak  will not be extended to three,  but if it is Lang's earlier film  Metropolis is to hand as a  substitute.  Yours sincerely,  Allan J.

Puppets on a Socred string  by Dave Barrett  My congratulations and my  sympathy go out to the  hundreds of British Columbians who were elected to  municipal councils and school  boards Saturday.  The congratulations are for  success in persuading fellow  citizens that they have the  drive and ability to manage  their community's affairs conscientiously and efficiently.  But 1 hope the voters will  extend to them the sympathy  and support they will need in  dealing with a very centralist  government in Victoria.  The annual Union of B.C.  Municipalities convention this  fall, which I attended, saw the  UBCM executive put a most  unusual emergency resolution  to the convention as its first  order of business. It warned  the government's proposed  Financial Administration Act  would destroy the century-old  tradition of local autonomy  by making municipal councils  mere rubber stamps of the  finance minister and they  demanded a halt to the  government's centralist move.  The UBCM solicitor followed with a warning to delegates  of a dangerous and accelerating trend in government  legislation which gives cabinet  and the bureaucracy carte  blanche in tacking any regulations they wish onto statutes  without the consent or even  knowledge ofthe Legislature.  Thc retiring president of the  B.C. School Trustees is on  record complaining that the  provincial government is  "centralizing power in Victoria and decentralizing financial responsibility" to  school boards. Her predecessor two years ago warned  that all local governments,  whether school or municipal,  were being turned "into  puppets on a Socred shoestring".

British  Columbia and Newfoundland,  Canada's poorest province.  And last year the British  Columbia transfers to local  government declined in relative terms. Property taxpayers were levied a total of  $1,122 millions throughout  B.C. because the province  transferred only $721 millions  from its huge treasury towards  the cost of running our schools  and our communities.  Only in B.C. and Newfoundland are the governments  increasing the financial burden on local communities  this way. And only in B.C. is  the provincial government  also trying to seize control  over local affairs that our  system traditionally gives to  locally-elected governments.  That's why I extend my  sympathy as well as my  congratulations to Saturday's  winners. Their fight to serve  their communities has only  begun.

The luncheon  was convened by Vice-President Marion McConnell.  that Victoria policies are not  only stripping power from  local communities but the  surplus-obsessed provincial  cabinet is making a money  grab too.  For instance, the Financial  Administration Act proposed  not only total Victoria control  over every dollar spent by  every elected local government but also made provision  for the minister to appropriate  lo the provincial treasury any  local taxes he deemed were  surplus to a council or school  board's needs! There never  was a more naked money grab  by one jurisdiction over another.  But the present regime  already has hoarded millions  of dollars by starving both  school boards and municipalities of traditional grants  so that they were forced to  raise tax levies locally.  Statistics Canada recently  reported on a Canada-wide  survey of provincial grants to  local governments in 1978 and  1979. Every provincial government an Canada except two  gave more money in grants to  The 'Aloha Luncheon' sponsored annually by the Gibsons  Hospital Auxiliary was held  on Friday, November 14, 1980  at the Gibsons United Church  Hall.

It is a program that puts  an inordinant burden on the  consumer to finance an  uncertain energy future still  controlled by foreign companies. Meanwhile, it barely  touches the excessive profits  of the big oil companies  and makes no real commitment in the area of conservation or developing renewable energy sources,  It is a program that revamps an old promise to give  Canadians a chance to buy  into our foreign-dominated oil  industry without saying what  we could buy or how we could  buy except that if there is any  buying to be done the taxpayer will foot the bill.  In 1980 a typical Canadian  consumer will spend $1,375 on  home heating and car gas.  By 1984 the cost will be $2,520  an 83 per cent increase. By  1984 gasoline will cost you  $1.95 a gallon.  My view is that hikes like  that must be accompanied by  a tax credit system to assist  those who just cannot take the  shock to their family budget.  I also think price hikes should  not go directly into the pockets  of the oil companies but into  an energy development fund  to see that we plan ahead  creatively to meet the energy  crisis.  Those increased costs for  oil mean more windfall profits  for the oil companies, since  the hikes often apply to oil  that has already been discovered. The companies made  $4.7 billion in profits when the  price of oil was only $13.75 per  barrel. Those profits will climb  much higher as the price per  barrel reaches $66.75 in 1990.  The profits are so high, in  fact, that they cannot all be  poured back into oil and gas  exploration. The big companies are using their revenues to buy into other  sectors: real estate, small  Canadian firms, agricultural  land, and other resource  businesses.  Meanwhile, the Canadian  taxpayer is subsidizing oil and  gas company exploration to  the tune of 93 cents on the  dollar, thanks to the new  budget provisions. Under our  old tax system Canadians put  up 65 cents of every oil exploration     dollar     through  There's   STILL TIME  to  RECOVER  l?H your  Kitchen  or Dining  Chairs  BEFORE CHRISTMAS!

The new system  provides that we shall pay  as much as 93 cents on the  dollar to the Canadian companies and 72 cents on the  dollar to foreign companies.  We are paying in and not even  getting shares in the industry  which is the least an investor  should expect.  Private Canadian ownership, by itself, will not change  the rules of the energy game.  Dome Petroleum, a so-called  50 per cent Canadian owned  company has threatened to  pull up stakes if it can't get  sufficient tax incentives from  the people of Canada. Dome is  trying to maximize profits  by charging the highest  possible prices and exporting  our resources to other countries. Why can Petro-Canada  not take the major role in our  energy future and not leave it  to the Imperial Oil barons and  their Canadian counterparts?  So far, we have paid for  oil and gas production as consumers, and for oil and gas  exploration as taxpayers. We  end up with soaring energy  prices, a new system to give  more grants to the industry  and a dubious plan to regain  ownership and control of that  industry,  4)   Stop guessing about     g*  ��      what they'd like.

The prize will quite possibly be a good tussle  with a lively cutthroat trout.  BUYING PROPERTY ON THE SUNSHINE COAST  There are 350 million English speaking polenlial bidders and 200 million Europeans  who have an edge on Ihe prime areas of Iheir continent.  If the North American polenlial is taken. Ihere are 220 million English speaking of  whom IO",. are al or near the day of decision, giving 22 million people on Ihe look oul,  and wilh Ihree main areas in Ihe U.S.A. and one in Canada from which lo choose.  While this Canadian area is lo be considered now, il is nol all equally desirable for  retirement purposes. For Ihis, peace and quiel, a pleasant climate, lowest possible  costs, greatest protection of investment, and everything which will save money are  important, along with reasonable closeness to a hospital, and the usual services and  facilities common lo our present mode of living.  Luckily, sunlight is still free and proper use of it can save $ 10 a monlh in Hydro and  fuel bills and will mean bigger savings after Alberta increases its royalties, and Ihe oil  companies raise Iheir prices in sympathy.  To achieve this, all that is needed is lo remember thai Ihe sun is almost due south at  noon, and thai anything facing that direction will receive much more light and heal  than Ihings lacing north or east etc. To show this beyond all doubt, try shining a  flash light on this paper at aboul the same angle as Ihe noonday sun. Nexl, lilt the  paper towards, away from, and sideways to the light. You will be surprised by Ihe  differences.  If you wish to get an idea of the behavior of light in a valley, or on a high hillside,  which hides the sun for part of the day, try making a "valley" or a "mountain" by  simply folding this paper into the desired shape and move your flashlight over il in a  manner that of the sun's movement.  By applying these simple tests to the area under discussion, and remembering the  yardstick is retirement, it is easy to see lhat the only southerly facing zones are,  Victoria, and the coast Irom about Gower Point lo Lund, and Ihe Gulf Islands.  For most people retiring, one ferry is enough, which limits the selection to Ihe  Victoria area and the Sunshine CoasI. meaning Gibsons Gower Point to Pender  Harbour.  Having reduced the choice to two areas, the selection factors become facilities,  costs and climate. When it is only a matter of facilities, Victoria is so far ahead, it is no  contest. In the matter of a cost comparison, housewives in Victoria and on Ihe  Sunshine Coast all feel their costs are Ihe worst in Canada, so they are probably nol  too different.
