terested in the reconstruction project. Of
these, five took out plans, but four dropped out at the tendering stage.
Metzler felt the lack of tenders was
"due to the unstable condition of the
construction industry." „
He said the problem of attractting
contractors would not have been so acute
if the project had been started six
months ago.
In cases where only one tender is
snilbmitted, both the contractor and his
bid must remain confidential, under department of education regulations, until a contract is signed.

Copland said that Derrick had contacted him after the newspaper item appeared. '
"He was concerned about the effect
the article would have on his development," said the clerk. "I told him it had
no 'bearing on it."
At present, council is awaiting a comprehensive development from Derrick.
In other news, Hume reported that
council was going ahead with one extension to the new sewer system—Fairmont Road—and "we are discussing
means of getting some others done.'"

Dramatic sea rescue
THERE were all sorts of highly theatrical elements in a drama enacted here
in the Harbour last Thursday evening.,It
was a rescue at sea involving coincidences, an animal contributing to the
saving of a man's life, and a voice calling
for help.
It all started when Frank Postlethwaite started out from Garden Bay in his
dinghy after diark. Frank was unwisely
travelling without a light, and ,some unidentified person travelling at speed in
another boat almost ran him down. The
ed as a 9, one could miss the meal entirely. All of which is to lead up to mention of a typographical error last week

The Maynards homesteaded. They

After the parade came the crowning
of the May Queen, Tracy Houghtaling.
Her attendants were Jennifer Wilcox, Violet Bilcik, Toni Kraft, and Elaine Trem-

and Michelle Fulton. Yvonne Campbell,
last year's .queen, set the crown on
Tracy's head and placed the queen's robe
on her shoulders.
From the high school, Christine Clark

Frank's craft and overturned it, leaving*- late. Sue Kammerle had a lucky day: she
Frank and his little light-colored
Barrett, in the water.
It was by good luck that Barrett was
aboard. Although they went overboard
in the wide part of the harbour off the
end of Garden Bay peninsula, they were
in the water long enough to have returned 'to the Garden Bay area before they
were able to attract the attention of anyone on shore, and the little animal contributed to their successful rescue.
Meanwhile, by chance Norman Cur-
ran got bored with the TV program his
wife May was watching, and stepped outside to savor the fine evening. And he
heard Frank's call for help..
He launched a neighbor's boat to try
to locate the source of the cry, but he
considers it unlikely he would have spotted Frank except for the fact that Barrett had sought safety by climbing on
his master's shoulders, IBs almost-white
coat helped Norm to find the two, aiwl
he was able to bring them aboard.
The Currans got Postlethwaite into a
hot bath to restore him, and returned him
to his home aboard the Sea-Jay at Coho
Marina, shortly before midnight, He's a
lucky inan7fer he apparently suffered
nothing more serious than a thorough,
chilling and 'the loss of his spectacles.
There are a lot of lessons to be learned ifrom this incident. One, don'tf travel
by night without a light, Not only is this
against the law, but It could, so easily bo
a fatal error,
Two, if yon are operating a speed
boat and Inadvertently come too closo
to a smaller craft, look back to see what
effect your passing has had on the other
vessel, Such a routine check could iutvo
spared Frank his dangerous and unpleasant adventure,

a friend of the Priests who, was visiting '

Ours Is an Interesting area.  Unlike
eastern Canada with which I am moro
familiar, this part of the country la full
of people -—comparatively youpg people
i.r-?,who.actually„,took part In,historic,c_)l-
podes, For Instance, 1 havo only recently
realized that Carol Maynard, that slight,
feminine — , almost   delicate-looking —
lady Is one of the pioneer women of our
coast, Were you aware that Carol and
her late husband lived for 27 years on
Nelson Island! before coming to .the Harbour?  That they opened a post offlco
there, and that Mr,' Maynard had th©
charter to bring the Island's children to
school on the, mainland each day. like
tho school bus drivers of today, only Using a boat. Most astonishing to mo, Carol
tells me that thero wcro somewhere be-
supposed to  be unimaginably  old and
rugged and tough seeming,1 surely?
Even comparative newcomers to the.
Harbour, like Win Course who has been
here less than 20 years, have tales to
tell of the "old days" when our community was so much more sea-oriented than
it now is. Win can remember when all
the children around^ Pender Harbour
were picked up by^boat and taken to
school, because the roads were either
non-existent or pretty primitive.
I sometimes think that this coast is
quietly resisting the inroads of civilization, making It difficult to establish a
foothold here so that the quieter, more
isolated and relayed life style can be
continued. In some places we're manag-p
ing to get the upper hand, but it's interesting, to think .that Nelson Island, for
example, has successfully overcome that
wave of settlers who were responsible
for the large school population in the
Maynard's day. ■ Perhaps In time to come
the forest will have reclaimed places that
now seem the unquestioned strongholds
ot today's fast-paced life.

There were sprays  of Dogwood at salient points and very  interesting centre-pieces on ithe itea tables consisting of 'Dogwood blossoms in  unique vases made.by Rene Croll.  These vases were particularly prized  by flVtrs. Croll; who is an expert cerami-  cist and made them while a resident .of  Nakusp. Unfortunately, when it was tirtie  to pack up, it was. found .that one was  missing, thus spoiling the set.  It ds presumed that, in the excit<2ment  of packing, Mas vase was, inadvertently  put an with other articles. No. 69 is very  hopeful that it will be found so that 1he  set can be complete again.  Our president, Hugh Duff, .introduced  Mrs. Cay Nelson, who, in a few very  ably spoken words, declared ��� the event  open and gave the signal for 'thhe uncovering of the bake table and the commencement of serving at the tea-tables.  At the same time, the flower and  plant table began a rush business, as did  the white elephant table. A note of artistry and color was added with a display  by ithe Arts Council of oils and water  colors by a number of local artists. This  addition to the decor was greatly appreciated by the organisers and the association as a whole. '   .  Way sand means chairman Eva Hayward was general convenor, with co-  chairman Irene Duff and Marguerite Foxall of the social committee being responsible for the tea-tables ".and the bake tables respectively.  Under the usual efficient management  /of  Hazel  Evans,  the_\flower,..and, seed  . .table' was soon sold out while Mrs. Ed-  Tmonds did a brisk business at the white  elephant table.  All .these ladies readily give credit  to the membership for assisting so valiantly as assistance was required1.

Last Thursday, May 16, we held our  monthly meeting, again1 in the old' Legion  Hall. On opening the meeting, chairman  Hugh Duff asked for a period' of silence  ��� in respect to the memory of Cyril Lawrence and Captain Jones who, while not  members, had been good friends to the  Association'.  1 In business arising from the minutes  was a letter from Sechelt Motor Transport advising (that they contemplated no  change in ithe bus service prior to October  15.

Eva Hayward reported on the spring  tea and thanked' her helpers, all and sundry.  It really is difficult to pick out individuals because the co-operation was so  excellent. The tea was a financial success.  Dave Hayward reported on the trip to  Victoria. It must have been a good trip  because Dave's report was replete with,  superlatives such as "beautiful", "excellent" and "luxurious". We can only conclude that a good' time was had hy all.  Dave also advised that a charter.had  been arranged for June 25 which would.  take us to Park and Telford Gardens,  Heritage Village, Oakridge, Little Mountain and Stanley Park at a cost of $5.  Emery Scott advised that Mrs. Fulton,  an official of New Horizons, would be at  his home on May 23 at 9:30 a.rn. to discuss the success of past programs, dancing and carpet ���'bowling, and to talk a-  bout planning for next winter's activity.

It pwouldl be hard1 to say just what  the magic formula was ��� perhaps ithe  mixture of music, youth and spring. The  location for the happy happening certainly ihelpecl to lift it otit of the ordinary. The Twilight Theatre, with its soft-  ly-lif stage, and comfortable seats, gave  the professional effect of a real theatre,'  Whatever the reason was, people were  enjoying themselves and showing it in  their spontaneous ovations,  It was a busy day for everyone involved ��� the first performance for students on the morning shift was from,  11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. After a short  ���break, 'the, program was repeated for, the  a'Dteraoon studien'te at 2 p.m. "Whose who '  were on,the afternoon shift, and taking -  ���pa,T,t in the program onlyv had "time for  a short lunch break after school, before 7  the concert for the public at 7 p.m.     > ��� 7  The program started; with ithree' select  it-kms by the grade 8 band, in their fiwt  pulblie appearance; This Is ��, good junior  band, which will be a good senior band  iwlth moro time and��� more opportunities,  '.to perform in public, ,    7   >  Pianist , Susan Sutherland played,  Grieg's To Spring with great sensitivity,  bringing out all the haunting beauty of  the musilci' , '  ����.,..

This talented act was highly entertaining and received the tumultuous applause it deserved,  The Dynamlx, consisting of several  boys who formed their own group to  play modern music, provided the next  item. In this medley of, top hits, these  skilled musicians' showed that their music isn't restricted to the classics.

HYDRO, soon will disconjariue its  ,- estimated, initerini billing policy, un-  der w-iich tills received every second  month by customers are for estimated  rather than actual consumption,       .  H. E. Daniel, Hydro's customers account manager, said'the" change would  begin to .take'effect June 1. \  "Meters will continue to be read at  two-month intervals," he said, "but customers will be billed every two months,  instead of' monthly as at present. The"  bills will cover actual consumption during the two-month period."  Hydro discontinued monthly ' meter  reading and. introduced the estimated interim billing program several years ago  as part of a continuing effort to hold the  line on rising.costs.  ���The new policy, will apply .to all accounts except those of large commercial  and industrial customers. Monthly meter  reading and billing -will continue for  these accounts.  ���Many customers objected to paying  estimated bills," Daniel explained.. "So  'we decided to.eliminate the interim bills-.  This ' will  please  many customers. and  Pago A*�� Th�� P@silB8alQ Ttecs  Wednesday, May 22, 1974  ' also help us in our objective of minimizing costs.".  He said all customers affected! by the  -change would-be "advised of >the stantingT  date for bi-monthly billing in their area.1  A bill insert containing this information  will be enclosed with the last bill delivered under the old system.  For customers who find monthly payments more convenient or helpful with  their budgeting, Mr. Daniel recommends  Hydro's equal payment plan.  "By taking advantage, of this plan,"  he  explained,    "customers  make  equal  " monthly payments .throughout the year.  The customer thus avoids higher payments -during cold; winter months when  consumption is greater.  "People who like to budget carefully  find this plan ideal," he said.  *pB^^gg.ia4^j.y^Ki��^^  .��I&_&E$a::&i^  Hu^^sww^.^arii  ASK FOR FREE CATALOGUE OF REAL ESTATE  PHONE (24 Hours)  Sechelt 885-2235  Vancouver 689-5838  U     BOX 128, SECHELT, B.C.

Municipal clerk Jack' Copland told  council May 14 ithat the transfer had  been approved that day by a provincial  order-in-council. ' .  Aldermen agreed that Gibsons Winter,  Club, which plans to construct the arena,  should be authorized to clear the entire  foiusand-a-half acre site and take the  revenue from timber sales.-  '' But they stipulated that the net profit |  realised from the timber should be ap- <  plied to the cost of servicing the arena. \  In other business, the Union of B.C.

SECHELT���Members of Sechelt and District Chamber of Commerce have moved to censure Graham Lea, minister of  highways, for his comments about a Canadian first policy aboard B.C. Ferries.  Executive members authorized president Bob Scales to write to Premier Dave  Barrett criticizing Lea's stand regarding  the proposal  Morgan Thomppson, at the chamber's,  executive meeting, said Lea's comment'  was the "second ridiculous statement" attributed to him. Thompson moved that  the chamber write to Barrett and complain about Lea's remarks.  Lea allegedly suggested at a public  meeting in Prince Rupert, that Canadians  first policy on B.C. Ferries is being considered by the government.  _ Lea said that American tourists would  not be excluded but might have to take  a lower priority than Canadans.  He was replying to a complaint from  a person who said many area (Prince Rupert) residents would like to use the  Prince Rupert -. Kelsey , Bay ferry but  that it is always booked up with tourists. ' ; ,, "��� ~-  "*' In W letter to' Barrettr Scales safcf:  "Sir, in a province where the tourist in  dustry is of major importance and where"  the provincial government spends thou-  _ sands of dollars to encourage tourism  ' these remarks are totally unbailed for and  have    aroused    very    deep   resentment  throughout the province.  "It would be. appreciated if'the min-  ,-ister of highways would confine himself  to the upgrading and extension of our  ' highways and leave the tourist industry  to the present capable management."

Proctor, Managing Editor  a^BEiy  PRICE tID  REFUSING to get involved has become  a way of life for many people in  communities throughout B.C. and Canada, and the Sunshine Coast is no exception.  We have heard stories of how people stand by and watch police being  beaten and men being assaulted. Witnesses do not wish to come forward to  give evidence and any excuse is used to  avoid jury duty.  Under our present laws it is not difficult to understand their reticence. All  witnesses and jurymen are not compen-  tions. This is borne out by the fact that  although they make up a smaller percentage of our population they have an  "exceptionally large percentage of charges and convictions.  What to do about it? Well, this is  one area of concern in which a community-minded organization such as the  Royal Canadian Legion can get involved.  There is an-opportunity here to get involved. There is an opportunity here to  get the facts and then make representations to the proper authorities for changes in the Criminal Code/It would seem  sated for economic losses.

The in- protect witnesses and public-spirited cit-  creasing tendency of the courts to give izens, and enact realistic laws for our  adjournments, thus having witnesses attend again and again, is to say the least  inconsiderate.  Our courts lean over backwards to  make sure that the accused gets his rights  to a fair trial. Sometimes we seem to  show more concern for the accused than  for the victim.

All should be studied and tackled  in an energetic, well-rounded program  which would have the admirable objective of improving inequality of life in  this democracy of ours.

This spring, the group has been touring throughout ithe Pacific Northwest  and B.C.  Their Davis Bay performance follows  a successful visit April 5 by Living  Sounds,  a high school age choir from    several letters from .this area condemning  Spokane.

A small number  of our people can at will, if they do not  get what they want, strangle the nation's  tirade, block its mail contracts and injunctions have been made meaningless, mere  scraps of paper to be broken at will.  Canada has suffered heavy losses during the past 100 years by the breaking of  agreements. It would appear 'that our  laws are made to be' broken. Governments  that are supposed to be the guardians,  of all its people are promising offenders  immunity from the law's sanctions, if they  will promise to be good boys and not  break the laws in the future. I wish, to  say that exploitation was the cause of  labor unrest and which forced them to  form lahor unions but this was no excuse -  for them to exploit themselves and others  and wreck  the country  in which they  must live.  These strikes are the cause of the  cursed inflation which we have to grapple  with jfrom day-to-day. Costs of production brought about by senseless demands  for more wages in bringing our people  to the verge of disaster. When one considers a plumber being paid $12.50 an  .hour, it makes one shudder, especially  those with fixed or small incomes. Maybe  I am painting a bleak picture of conditions but to those who receive a pittance  to ithese advancing costs, it is no laughing matter.  __ With the commencement of the industrial revolution in the cotton industry  in Lancashire, England, as a boy I worked  in a spinning null and my work was much  longer and harder than is the case today.  That is why unions were formed' and  my mother, being a weaver,and a leader  in forming a, union, kept me abreast of  those times.< > *���   j^.. c   . ..   ,    ,  The unions  in those  times  did  im-  ' prove their position to the point that made  the exploiter figure out something that  would  give them   an  advantage.   They  made arrangement with Japan,to start  cotton over there and, they  paid high  . wages to workers in the mills of Lancashire to go to Japan and train them in_  the art -of.manufacturiiig <rottori goods-"  which caused-a stir in England when it  ' was found those goods made in "Japan  were marked, British manufactured. The  Japanese were very quick to learn the  business and it was. the cotton industry  of Japan that helped make that country.

Advice, aid available  for colostomy sufferers  EDITOR, The Times  Sir: By the grace of God, and thanks  to the dedicated skill and service of various doctors, surgeons and nurses, I am  now home recuperating from a colostomy  operation. __  In my youth, cancer, was a bad,word,  and, in .that - Edwardian era, was mentioned only in hushed tones. I don't really know why, but possibly on the ostrich  principle that if one refuses to see something bad it will just go away. -  However, in these more enlightened  days I believe it is generally recognized  that the ostrich principle not only fails _  to work, "but can be downright harmful.  Medical science has made great progress  both in diagnosis and in treatment.'  I have been told that in B.C., alone,  there are hundreds of lucky people like  myself who, thanks to an alert physician's  early recognition of the signs and prompt  action in arranging for surgery, are now  carrying their own personal "holding  tank", and many have been leading a  "perfectly normal life for years."  My personal thanks to Dr. Walter  Burtnick who had me in skilled surgical  hands one week after his diagnosis was  confirmed.  It is to that number of your readers  who belong.to this fortunate fraternity,  but who may experience difficulty in  coping with some feature of their changed condition, that I wish to advise that  help can be obtained from the International Association for Interostomal Therapy.  In Vancouver, the Association is represented by Mrs. Helen Manson R.N.,  Certified Enterostomal Therapist, who is  in charge of the Stoma Rehabilitation  Clinic. This group have their headquarters in the nurses residence of St. Paul's  Hospital at 1056 Comox Street, Vancouver 5, B.C. Telephone 685-5212.  Mrs. Manson is a very special person  in my book. She underwent an operation  for colostomy a number of years ago  and, therefore, has an experience and understanding not possible otherwise. Having been in her care.while in hospital,  I know her to be a kindly, sympathetic,  charming lady, and she has permitted me  to say that she will be glad to receive  a letter or phone call from anyone who  needs .advice on Colostomy Ileostomy, or  Urinary Ostomy.

How  many mobile boaters take time for  a little MID-SEASON MAINTENANCE?  By the time half the season has  rolled by, most trailer boatmen  have logged between several hundred and several thousand miles.  They've dunked their trailers in a  variety of water launchings and  loaded their outboard rigs dozens  of times with lots of 50 to 70  milo-pcr-hour highway driving in  between, >  Probably the two most neglected and abused areas on any  boat trailer arc the tires and tho  Wheel bearings,  The small diameter, high pressure tiro used on most modern  trailers should bo checked ,dftcn.  On long trips, get in tho habit of  checking tho air pressure every  tlmo you stop for gas. Cold pres-  , sure In modern trailer tires usually  ranges from 55 to 70 pounds per  square inch with the, heat or running building that pressure as high  as 90 or more pounds per square  Inch. Allow that pressure to drop  below the tiro manufacturer's recommendations nnd you hnvo big  problems,  Grease iionln on most boat trailer wheels aro supposed to bo  wntorproof and they usually nro  nt tho beginning of lho season. Unfortunately, heat builds up within  the bearing Units durlngMilgti speed  travel, If you're llko most people,  ono of tho first tilings you want to  do upon arrival nt tlio water Is get  that boat In the water, That means  you're dunking those hot wheels  Into cool water, causing an almost  Instant contraction of the air in  the bearings. Constant expansion  and contraction can, and docs,  break down the urease seals. Over  ft long ������.reason,' ��� water eventually  sucks Into the tourings. .   ...  To prevent damage, the bearings on your trailer should bo  checked often nnd repacked with  iho proper lubricant at least onco  during iho boating season.  Electrical wiring from tho enr  to tho trallor lights has n wny of  becoming worn, shorted, or broken,  especially around tho connectors.  Both of these Important Items  should bo checked ort each trip  nnd repaired or replaced as necessary.

Lome Bowering, director of Camp Elphinstone, is inviting young people from  all over BC to apply for leadership positions with the Y for this summer. Camp  Elphinstone ��� has a seventy-year-old tradition of youth programming and provides opportunities for young people to  develop their .leadership skills. It is hoped  students from the Sechelt area will be  involved.  An eight-day training program at the  end of June starts the experience with  the balance of the summer spent working  with .groups of boys as instructors or  group leaders. Bowering said most leadership opportunities are for young men,  but women who feel they can work with  boys are also included as instructors,.  Besides the training, the "Challenge  and the leadership skills developed, an  honorarium of ,$500.00 is provided. Interested youths should write to YMCA  Camping Programs, 6137 Cambie Street,  Vancouver V5Z 9B2 for nn application  and full details.

For the newcomers and visitors to  the coast, Salmon is.not the only thing  the sea has to-offer.

The flotsom and jetsom that arrives  on "our1 shores is beyond belief. With ev-  ' ery move of the tide, there's' a change.  As a youth, it was quite common for' me  to. find a Japanese glass net float, but  plastics have taken over, and now they  are quite scarce. But,.from time to time,v  they still wash up on the shore.  Different types of wood from all the  corners of this round world show up on  our back door. Driftwood of many shapes  still/abounds. There is many an hour can  be spent in silent pleasure and it awaits  you and yours.-  TIP F6R TODAY  ��� , When bottom fishing, there is always  the' problem of snagging "the rocks on  the bottom with your weight. This sometimes costs you your weight, hook, leader and a good part of your main line (if  you forgot to use^No. 2 test less than  your line).-  Although lead is very expensive today, you can at least save some of your  tackle by using a hairpin. Use a snap  swivel on the end of your weight leader,  insert the hairpin through the eye of the  weight and bend the tines enough to  hold the weight of the lead, then connect the snap swivel.  If, after lowering your tackle to the  bottom, your gear becomes entangled  with rocks and such, a quick jerk on  your line will free everything except  your weight.  I would like to <pass on special thanks  to the sincere people Who are reporting  marked fish. This i~ a very important  project ^for our future fishing. Till next  week.

NELSON ISLAND—Can    you    .imagine,
what it  would' be  like  to- meet   a
^grown-up David Copperfield, or one of
Horatio Alger's  boy  heroes,   in person
today? To meet Harry Roberts dn his
nights lately," he said. «'I find myself
in another country, with people who are
black perhaps one night, or orientals
another. They can understand me' and
I can,understand them, and I seem to be
living with them for a long time. Then
Nelson Island home is a somewhat, simi- "** ^e morning;-here I am back in my
a^iovij. «>«>-»-   v own piace» Astral travel or unusually
lar experience.
'Harry Roberts is, of course, the well-
known coastal resident who was for many
years storekeeper, postmaster, sawmill
operator, and even deputy doctor, at Roberts Creek. He left there just before
World War II and came to Cape Cock-
burn, .where he built—and is still modifying the building of—a most beautiful
log home. And there he still lives, alone
now, in the house where he raised has
■three .children. .
Harry was well into his -fifties when
he left Roberts Creek, and had lived
some exciting adventures since coming ,
to British Columbia as a 16-year-old lad
at the turn -of the century. Relieved of
his business ^ponsabilities at Roberts
Creek, and encouraged and assisted by his
second wife and others,- in 1968 he published a book of reminiscences about
'those early "years entitled The Trail of
Chack' Chack.-
Chack chack, Chinook for baldheaded
eagle, was the name of Roberts' 12-ton
yawl (because of its figurehead of an
eagle's head), and he himself became
known as Skipper Chack "Chack—hence
the book's title.
I've just been reading this book—
there's a copy in the Pender Harbour
Library—and it's fascinating reading. It
recreates in the rfldnd's eye ■ a vision of
the days before the roads, when a young
man could stent out on a Deceiriber evening to row a skifif from the young city
of Vancouver, in full darkness, bound for
Roberts Creek; and where a teenaged boy
could foe put in charge of a steamship in
the tricky waters of the Gulf of Georgia.
Fm sure yotfll enjoy reading of'young
Roberts' introduction to life on (the coast,
of his accomplishments in bridge-building, seamanship, shake making, logging,
slhipbiulddng. like a fictional hero, Harry Roberts becomes in the-mind of the
reader a" larger-than- life-sized man of
unfailing wisdom and incorruptible vir--
tue, sure to succeed in any effort -and
against any odds. But it's a two-dbnen-
slional man' who _emerges from these
pages, a cardboard' figure of heroic proportions, but with no humanizing weaknesses or warmth.
And it's hard to fit the real-life man,
still vigorous and enthusiastic at 90, very
clearly multidimensional and human,
onto this base.
.;. -Evidences of-his outstanding,-abilities'
are everywhere. -His unusual' log-jhorae'
was constructed by a man with an ar-
tists's eye (and indeed he was trained as
an art instructor before leaving England
in 1900) and a cratsman's hands. Every
window )in ithe sprawltrig, ihlulta-Ieve-
building is constructed in a sunray design, each piece of glass differently shap-
' ed from all the others. (Which is why his
house is called Sunray.) On the walls
hang sonie of his paintings. There's a
draftsman's sketch, his own, lying on
his desk. It's the plan for the 18-foot
weekender vessel he plans to* build (at
901). Among his many books.(there are
two which he himself wrote, The Trail of
Chack Chack, and Natural Laws. The
Chinese junk which he dlesigned and
created, and aboard which he lived for
a period of three years, is shored up on
the' beach.    .
The man himself is cordial and communicative. There is no apparent blunting of his intellectual powers despite his
advanced years, and he is as full ot enthusiasms as many men a fraction his
age, He has a philosophy of llfei, based on
the "natural laws" of which he wrote in
his second book, and obviously wishes to
disseminate it. Ho is something of a
mystic perhaps, although lie mentioned
his experiences of astral travel quite
matter-of-faotly. .;
"I've been having the most wonderful
vivid dreams,,it seems to me marvellous
that a 90-year-old man can speak with
such: enthusiasm of his "wonderful
, It's difficult to sort out the actual
historical details of this man's life, since
to some extent T think he has come to
see himself as the inhumanly perfect
hero of his romantic stories, and to censor
what he tells one. But extremely human
and subject to the forces of passion he
must have been.
For example, when he was already in
his second half century, and had just
terminated' his first marriage, he fathered three children whom, he raised at his
present home at Cockburn .Point. Raised
them, according to him, practically alone,
giving them. their lessons in the tiny
schoolroom he incorporated into, the
house. For their mother (again according
•to Harry Roberts) abandoned them and
him. But she was by no means the last
woman dn Harry Roberts' life. He married- again, at 70. In fact, there have
been several women who have • shared
in his adventures.
> I think my favorite story from the
book is a Christmas saga. Just before his
second Christmas in Canada, when he
was living in his father's home in Roberts ,
, Creek, his younger sister mentioned that
no one had-apparently made any preparations for the' holiday season. On Christmas Eve when the steamer stood offshore, he rowed out with the mail as
was his custom. On impulse, he decided
that it was, still not too late to do something to correct the oversight.
He persuaded the skipper of the
steamer to help him bring his skiff
aboard, and travelled to Vancouver in
the vessel. Only after they were under
way did it- occur to him that he had
no money at all with him. But other passengers sympathetic with his undertaking put together $20 and • offered it to
him. It was already late in the day when
■they rea<5ied the city, and has Christmas
shopping was done in great haste, with
the help of the steamer's captain and
By the time he returned to the waterfront -with his' purchases, it' was full
dark and foggy, but he set out to row
back to his father's home. Setting his
course with the aid of sound signals
ashore, he managed the'"difficult'row- as)
far as'Bowen Island.
As he rowed past a house on the
beach part way down the island, he saw
two young people with a light on the
shore, who hailed him. He brought his
skiff .into ithe beach, and the pair urged
him to make a stop at their home. For
' they said there was a Christmas party
•going on, with several younger children
present, and they needed someone to act
as Santa Claus.
Harry Roberts was exhausted by his
long and difficult" trip, and still had a
long way to go, but he agreed to play
the part. Rigged out in a makeshift santa
suit—contrived from a scarlet dressing
gown and an assortment of white scarves
—he was soon making a. surprise entrance
to the Isolated home.
The youngsters present were, of
course, confirmed in their belief in the
jolty eW, and even the adults were confounded by the, presence of an unknown
•Christmas visitor, when a quick head
count revealed it was not one of them*
selves masquerading. 7 '"7 , 7
7 When'the excited children had opened
their gifts and been put to bed, Harry
i pat on,- visiting with the adults of tho
house pitor some time,' Then he slept for
a few hours'oh the floor in front of the,
fire, after a promise that he would be.
awakened in three hours time.
In the very small hours of the morning, he was sent on his way- again. He '
was able to raise the; sail with which
the skiff was equipped of the way, which
offered relief from the strenuous rowing.
But the sea was rough-and. becoming
rougher, and soon he had. to haul it in.
As he approached his destination, the
waves were very high, and he feared he
would be unable to make a landing and*
be forced to go on by.
However, the family had seen him
approaching . and were on the shingle
ready to help, him pull his boat up, and
taking advantage of a huge, wave, he
managed to bring her down onto the gravel with .terrific" impact.' He leapt .ashore
and was able to haul her up with the
help of all hands.
His young sister was delighted to dis-.
cover he_had after all managed to pro--
vide the ingredients for a Christmas
celebration, and while he slept "off his
fatigue, she prepared the traditional turkey dinner.   ...
This younger sister, Ida, must herself
have been a remarkable young woman.'
Only 14 when the" family came to the
coast, and with her mother recently dead,
she took on the .chore of keeping house
for her father and brothers. And she did
it under conditions that would seem incredibly difficult to many more mature
housewives today.
• That epic Christmas voyage is only
one of many exciting adventures recounted in Roberts' book, and I urge you
all  to  read    it.   It  reveals' fascinating
glimpses of earlier days on this Peninsula, - and the difficult way, of life of
"many of its inhabitants. And it Js intriguing, as you read, to -reflect that the
historical figure who is the hero of these
tales is still very muchl alive and still
having adventures.
For instance, on Easter weekend when
.1 visited him, .he had just managed to
secure a' channel marker , which had
been washed ashore' on his beach. He
clambered" nimbly over the'huge logs
lying there to greet- us as we arrived,
and gave us a conducted tour of his
beautiful and unusual home. He keeps it
himself, cooking his meals and keeping
order in the rambling house.
He showed us his bedroom, meticulously neat and tidy, and I noticed that
beside Jiis pillow is a breadboard. He
tells me, that he puts a scrap of his
home-made bread there each evening,
and watches as 'his friend, a timid little
mouse, makes a dart out- from the shadows to claim it during the night.
Before we left, he 'also gave us a conducted tour of the Chinese junk. We"
approached it from a make-shift scaffolding Roberts has constructed, which
necessitated walking across a narrow ten-
foot plank to the deck. Can you imagine
following- a 90-year-old' over such an,
But this is no ordinary nonagenarian.
This is a man who is living' every day
to the full, and making plans for many
tomorrows, I wouldn't be surprised to
hear one of these days that Harry Roberts has chosen still .another .wife and
embarked on a new chapter in his in-
- credibly eventful life.
BILL' 31, the proposed, new. Mineral Roy-
*   alties Act does' not serve the 'best interests .of the people of British Columbia,
/according' to the Association of Profes--
sionar Engineers of'B.C.     *&•
"- - This is- the, first time in its history
that' the 7,000 member i organization has
.placed" its views oh "record regarding a
major issue of public interest,'" said Fred
Milligan, president of the association.
* '   "Evidently the government - f e e Is it'
would be better able to meet its social
objectives by getting more money from
the mining industry", Milligan said, "and
the engineering 'profession is sympathetic
to the view that all; the people of-Hie
province, are entitled to benefit substantially from the riches provided by nature.
However the •proposed legislation would
have the opposite effect. The lower grades
of ore presently being mined would become uneconomic and left in the ground,
resulting in squandering    a  substantial
part of the mineral wealth of the province". 7   •
- The professional engineers suggest
that Bill 31 in its present form would
create the following situations:
.'(1) It .will shorten the life of many
mines in B.C. and lead to the permanent
waste of large deposits of low grade ore.
The __ reference here is particularly to
porphyry copper deposits. Last year B.C.
copper production was valued-' at $490
' million. This is half the value of all
mining in B.C., yet B.C. mines represent the lowest grade copper mines oper-
, ating anywhere in the world. Bill 31
could cut the lifespan of the average
B.C. mine in half because the lowest
grades of ore would be left unmined, and
would not be economic to recover at a
later date.   '
: (2) There will be .progressively fewer
jobs and pay envelopes provided by the
mines of B.C. While concern is felt for
about 1500- professional engineers whose
livelihood is" related to mining,- the association is even more' concerned about the
loss of jobs and opportunities by other
working people of B.C.        '    . .
In 1972, wages and. benefits paid directly to employees by 29 reporting mining'companies, totalled $178 million, a
figure that would be greater" today, but
which will now commence to shrink. Min- -
ing activity is already slowing down dn
BiC, although it, is; accelerating elsewhere in the world.
(3) It will severely reduce the amount
of business that hundreds of suppliers of
goods and services receive from the operating mines of B.C., and this will cause
important cut-backs in employment.
(4) It will reduce the total income that
the government receives from the, taxa-
; tion of mines in B.C.,This will be brought
about by the shorter life of mines and
consequent earlier stoppage of tax payments by both the companies and individuals.
(5) It will severely curtail jobs and opportunities for engineering and other
applied science students from B.C. universities.
(6) .New mining properties will not be
brought into' production because under
• the proposed royalty system it will not
be possible to pay off the huge costs
incurred in bringing a large mine into
"If the government has to raise more
money from mining," Milligan said, "engineers say it should take the form of a
tax on profits, and not a royalty on production." -
