House movers break into  cars, block road access  GIBSONS���Workmen   unloading houses  from'barges at Headlands Road often  break into residents' parked cars to move  them, council has been told.  Also, "the drivers yell and shout back  and forth and rev up truck engines," during unloading operations, which usually  take place around 4 a.m.  l_r. and Mrs. F. W. McGivern charged  in a letter to council that the large flatbed trucks used to transport houses completely block access to Headlands.,  "If either us or the people across the  street caught on fire, we wouldn't Have  a hope" the residents said.  "There have been    other small  instances 'such as knocking over bushes,  ' breaking branches off our trees, knocking  over our garbage cans and throwing stuff  off the barges onto the beach,"  VWe are never informed ahead of time  ��� that the barges and houses are coming,  and if we are' not home,-the men break  into our cars and trucks to.move them  out of the way," they explained.,  The McGivems said that the last time  houses were brought in* they telephoned  aldermen Hugh Archer and Ted Hume.  "I am pleased to say that both aldermen came promptly and stayed until the  unloading was over."  Hume told council that ihe moving  operation was exactly as the residents  ".  had described. "It was a hell of a mess", >  he said. "And they do for a fact break  into trucks. They're, open to charges right  there." x ��� - .    ,  Road access to the street was complete]^, blocked off, he reported. Tree  branches were broken and piles of lumber were knocked over.  'These tnjckers don't carp."  Aid. Archer suggested that a corner  post .or possibly a fence should be erected to mark the McGivern's property  line.   % ���  Mayor Wally Peterson felt residents  should be notified ahead of time of incoming houses.  He explained that moving took place  in the-early-morning at the suggestion of  the highways department because there  is;little other traffic at that time.  Peterson noted that the Headlands/  Bay Road area was the only point suitable for off-loading housed than Roberts  '. Creek.'   ..'  "We shouldn't create.a hardship for  people" By forcing ;���';��� them.. to transport  their houses froni Roberts Greek, he felt.  "But we shouldn't create a hardship for,  present, taxpayers."  Council agreed to ask the moving companies to give two days notice of any  unloading operations.

He also urged residents to shut off  sprinkling when they hear a fire siren.  Gibsons youth  drowns in lake  DOUGLAS   James  Price    of  Gibsons  drowned in Trout Lake July 12, less  than two weeks after his 19th birthday.  He had been swimming with two teenage girls and another youth.  One of the party contacted Cunningham's Ambulance Service when rescue  attempts failed after Price began flailing  around in the water and sank.  RCMP used boats and skin-diving  equipment to retrieve the body.  Reason for the drowning is not know  at present, police told The Times, but  they, are  investigating.    \  Price was an employee of Gibsons  Building Supplies.

RCMP told The Times that Donald  Park (33) and his father Warden (59) were  doing roof repairs to their home at approximately 12.30 p.m., when Rudolph  Schrenko, Donald Park's father-in-law,  started firing at them for no apparent  reason.  Both Parks reached the ground safely,  but Donald was shot in the back while  trying to gain refuge in the house.  His father pulled him into the house,  found a rifle, and shot Schrenko dead.  The injured Park was rushed to St.  Mary's Hospital, and then to the Tyee  Airways terminal from where he was  rushed to Vancouver for emergency surgery.  But he died during the flight,  RCMP said there was no reason for  the attack.  Park leaves a wife and small children,  while Schrenko is survived by his wife.

GIBSONS���Little can be done to increase  water pressure in the upper level of  the village until a new, higher-elevation  reservoir is constructed, Mayor Wally  Peterson told council's July 10 meeting.  He was answering criticism from local  firemen on inadequate water pressure to  combat the recent devastating fire at  Elphinstone  Secondary   School.  Because of low pressure, firemen said,  certain areas of the village, notably Abbs  Road, would be almost impossible to  protect in case of fire.  A delegation of 10 VFD members attending the meeting also challenged council's apparent opposition to requests by  fire chief Dick Ranniger for increased  fire fighting facilities.  VFD spokesman, Murray Crosby, said  Ranniger was not "too pushy" as some  members of council seemed to feel.  "As an unpaid fire chief, he's doing a  hell of a good job. Dick just tries to let  council know what our problems are."  Peterson said council was aware of  the department's problems, "but we need  tho dollars. Dick asks us for everything  you want. We try to provide everything  we can afford."  Crosby said he would like to see council initiate a program of installing a certain number of new hydrants each year.  Aid. Winston Robinson noted that  council had increased the fire department  budget to $B,000 this year, agalns $3,500  4n 1072.  "We gave them a fair increase, plus  everything they asked for (outside the  budget)," he said.  Mnln problem in fighting tho Elphinstone fire was rocks and debris clogging  the fire hoses, explained Crosby.  Village foreman Fred Holland said  there had been plenty of water in the  system, but Uiq pressure was low.  "There is no way the upper level  system can get more pressure until we  hnvo n higher reservoir."  And he felt n project as large as con-  Mluctiqn of a new reservoir could not be  undertaken hy Gibsons alone.  "The village and regional board should  work together, even if tho village has to  buy bulk metered water from the district."  Holland also noted that water pressure  in tho Abbn Road nnia was poor, ' .>ut 1  worry more about the apartment area on  School Road,"  Fire trucks can build up pressure In  the case of fire, he noted, '"but there's no  volume, nnd volume In what's needed."  ''Wo  know all  these   things  can  bo  fixed, but we need money."  He felt water rates should be increased  to help pay for an improved system.  "Water rates are far too cheap," he  said. "They are lower than the regional  district."  Peterson agreed that rates would have  to be increased, and said council was  working with the regional district on  planning the next stage of water supply  for the area, a higher reservoir, which  would provide better volume and pressure.  "But it will be a year or two before  we can get around to it."  He said council was 100 per cent  behind the firemen and they shouldn't  blame themselves for losing the school.  "You did all you could."  Cost of improvements  to  the water  system  could  not  be  "dumped  on  the  taxapayers," he felt. "Improvements have ,  to be self-liquidating and pay for themselves."  Reporting on problems faced by firemen fighting the Elphinstone blaze, fire  committee chairman Kurt Hoehne said  their greatest difficulty was debris iu the  lines.  "Firemen were constantly unscrewing  nozzels to shake the rocks out of them,"  he said. "When we have three fire trucks  pumping from the system, they move all  the debris in the line's."  When the fire trucks, themselves, became plugged with debris, he explained,  . all the hoses had to be disconnected. This  operation could take wp to ten minutes.  The sprinkler system Installed In the  school was Inadequate, he felt.  "The fire was burning for one hour  before it was detected by the heat sensors.  By this tlmo, the tremendous heat had  already popped out the windows.  "The rear standplpc waa of no use," ho  added. "There was not even enough prca-  * Bare to travel to the top of the gym."  And he warned; "We have no equipment to fight a fire ot this magnitude,  not oven in. tho shopping centre."  In February, said the alderman, he  recommended council to supply tho department with a four inch hard core line  to reduce friction loss over long distance;!.  No action was taken.  Feb. 18, he said he had recommended  installation of a No. 1 hydrant at the  school. No" action was taken.  Feb. 12 "I recommended an investigation of the area of priorities and a  print of .he water main. We still haven't  got the plan."     ' ^  Hoehne said he would keep "under  constant surveillance" council's progress  in improving fire protection in the village.    .

H. Alsgard, Publisher  WMWW____  Richabd T. Proctor. Managing Editor  BMNMNOMM  Improve fire protection now  Taxpayers in other areas of the vil-  MAYOR Wall]/ Peterson told council's  recent meeting that improved water  service to Gibsons would have to be  "self liquidating" and pay for itself  without further burdening the taxpayer.  From the financial point of new,  this is a laudable contention.  But in view of the recent devastating fire that destroyed most of Elphinstone Secondary School, it would seem  that the urgency of improving the water  supply and, consequently, fire protection, must take presidence over saving  . the taxpayer a few dollars a year.  On Abbs Road, where fire protection  is said to be barely feasible because of  lage would undoubtedly take the same  point, of view.   ;.  When property and lives are at  stake, there is no time for penny-pinching.  Action must be taken. And taken  now. To leave1 the village water system  as is until "self liquidating" improvements can be carried out is akin to leaving the stable door open.after the horse  has left���while there, are still other  horses inside.  If council genuinely feels taxpayers  are unwilling to contribute a small additional sum annually to guarantee their  inadequate water, most homes are priced    safety, then let. them put it to referen-  in the $30,000 to $40,000 category. ���  As Alderman Ted Hume remarked  to council, owners would surely be prepared to pay an extr^ five dollars a year  to protect their assets.

After all, if the funds and effort required to initiate a referendum: are free-,  ly available for a recreation centre vote,  surely rib-one -would begrudge the necessary financing to organize a fire protection poll.

And do not let us delude ourselves, "development" and despoliation  _are synonymous.  A recently approved "development**,  on the part of Sechelt Lands Limited has  already drawn from Sechelt Mayor Ben  Lang, to his everlasting credit, some  sobering comments quoted in the Peninsula Times of June 27: "... Sechelt Lands  .proposals attempt to create the greatest  number of parcels .put of every available  square foot of land with minimum regard to the future effect on present residents."  .Do residents of the Sunshine Coast  wish to see this type of "progress"  swamping the area, for this is surely what  would follow the'-building of new highways with land predators clamoring stor..  rezoning all dyer the place.  :,.'.'..'��� ��� The needs of present residents with  -regard to local and through traffic can  .well be met, <as Mr. arid Mrs. Brpman  suggest, by the present- Highway 101  kept in good repair with currently ongoing improvements and carefully planned by-passes for Gibsons and Sechelt  if desired; This should also satisfy needs  that may arise in the foreseeable future,  unless our technical planning committee  foresees rapid "progress" here towards  an area .of high population density with,  the utter, destruction of what quiet, rural  charm still remains in the area.  Any proposals  for.. new    highways  should be submitted as a plebiscite to the  ment, that I was a participant .in the  events of the infamous weekend at Rob-,  erts Creek, ��and that I resent my choice  of relaxation and entertainment being  heralded as a danger to the; community  for reasons which I perceive to be fatuous, hypocritical, and generally devoid of  valid basis.  Let us examine the accusations, ephemeral and vague as they are, one by one:  First  of  ail  we  hear  that .the  bikers  (although  welljbehaved)   arte   "not   the  mo$t desirable of neighbors." This may  well" be; I am not an expert in these  matters, although I hear there are those  who consider blacks, Jews, and Indians  .undesirable neighbors  as well. Perhaps  there is some-root cause here.1 Next we  hear   that   these   same   villans   roared -  around the roads of the community on  their bikes,  making the streets  unsafe  for children. This may also he true to  some extent, as any fast-moving vehicle  clearly represents a danger to any pedestrian on the same road. However, I take  exception to Proctor's impulse to use this  situation as a viable reason for condemning  the weekend at  Roberts  Creek.  I  would guess that only a minute proportion of the  dangerous driving on this  Peninsula is accounted for by longhaired,  . gritty motorcylists attending celebrations  at .the General Store. I have lived here  for five years, and every year I've noticed  great, numbers of red-neck creeps in con-  r ditions ranging from slightly impaired to  crawling drunk, slamming around these  roads during the Sea Cavalcade, in their  4-7-cubic-inch surrogates for rnasculinity,  and I don't hear anyone calling for aN  ban on the Sea Cavalcade!- Police surveillance ,of the bikers was constant and  accute, and. apparently none of the of-  ;  ficers saw fit to arrest anyone for their  driving. As I understand it, not one of  the Inkers received so much as a parking  ticket.  Now we get to the dance - a crowded  affair, catering musically to the longhaired segment of the population, although  sponsored by the ANA vets (who inciden-  Proctpr's. column as the quote attributed  ,lo Glen, to the effect that he had "never  witnessed anything like that," and the  columnist's spooky conclusion: "If tjiis  weekend is any indication of what can  happen at a happening ..." As I've already noted, the entire article has a de-  pressingly-ominous.overtone,.and yet not .  one thing of particular significance is  shown to have happened.  The only complaints I personally  heard were of noise. Good old noise. Well^  let me say that there are entire afternoons during which I cannot make myself heard to my child in the yard be-  , cause, of the light planes snarling constantly overheard, but those light planes  are bringing business to the community,  and so no one makes any vociferous complaint,  - accuse Mr. Proctor, and some of the\  good citizens of Roberts Creek of hypocrisy, arid I say that had the celebrants  at the General Store been clean-cut and  less socially uninhibited, and had they  spent lots of money at the local stores,  and pleased the Chambers of commerce,  that exactly the same events could have  occured with no complaints about the  safety of the community, or facist mut-  terings about banning large gatherings.  There would only have been brief local  grumbling about* the noise.-  ��� I find this attitude, and ��� the kind of  emotional journalism evidenced in Dick  Proctor's column, both stupid and dangerous, and I fear this spectre of bigotry and  pretension even more than Dick Proctor  Page 3 The Peninsula Times  Wednesday, July 18,1973  ��� ������ ���        i     '���      i ���' i   i .I. ��� i ���  fears the spectre of dirty bikers' overwhelming his neighborhood.  \        Dal Graurer, Roberts Creek,  (Box 717, Gibsons, B.C.)  ���\ - -  Sportsmanship lauded  Editor,  The Times,  Sir: As president of the Sunshine  Coast Minor Baseball League I accompanied the local Bronco and Pony all-  star teams to the Lower Mainland for the  area playdowns.  The teams were composed of players  from all areas oh the Peninsula. The  Bronco team was eliminated early in the  tournament but the Pony team is still  in contention as this letter is being written (Sunday, July 15).  Although they did not win the good  sportsmanship and friendliness which the  boys displayed was outstanding.  They showed, that boys fronv Pender  Harbour to Port Mellon can and will work  together as a team if given the chance.  They make a fine example for. the adults  to follow.  The parents and coaches of the boys  can be very proud of the players even  though'they didn't win many games.  It makes,all the volunteer hours and  gallons of gas and other expenses worthwhile  to see  the  boys  enjoying  them-  SSlVGS.  Davis Bay GORDON DIXON  residents of the, Sunshine Coast before   tally, were very much in-evidence if one  Editor, The Times,  Subject: Fire at Elphinstone Secondary  School and newspaper reports on said  council views of fire department operation.  Sir: The members of the Gibsons Volunteer Fire Department are concerned  regarding alleged misconceptions portrayed by statements arising out of council-  and employees which can be construed as  misleading, giving the public an unfavorable impression of fire department activity and competency.  Coast News, July 4, 1973: "In commenting on line department expenses  Mayor Peterson maintained the fire Chief  was pushing too hard."  Peninsula Times, July/4, 1973: ' _ gave  a detailed report to council on Feb. 12  about the effectiveness of water protection in that area and I have made reports  on other occasions," (Aid. Kurt) Hoehne  said.  "I made these comments in May and  again in a June meeting. I was told that  the fire chief makes too many demands  and that he should stay within his budget,"  Hoehne  told  The  Times.  From the above we feel the public is  left with the impression:  1. Council inaction and comments are  Indicative that adequate hydrant or  standpipes are provided and that we are  'pushy' in asking for more or improved  protection.  2. That there was, contrary, to the  chief's statements, an adequate supply  and pressure in the system at the initial  fire attack.  3. That the department was not too  concerned about debris in the mains and  are responsible for this condition and  repairs to pumps.  To correct these impressions we feel  that as the responsible governing body,  the council should admit publicly:  1. That in many village areas the  system is well below the standard of  municipal fire protection as suggested  by the Canadian Underwriter's Association���  (a) number-size-capacity of hydrants;  (b) water volume, static pressure and  residual pressure.  Example: Residential districts with  buildings of small area and low height  at least 420 gallons per minute ia required;. Larger or higher buildings could  cause thla to rise to 840 gpm. Apartments,  dorms and high value residences could  cause this to vary up to 1,200-2,600 gpm.  These figures are with a recommended  residual prcasure of 20 psi.  Fact: The hydrant at the school (even  with the village pump on to assist waa  only capable of producing 843 gpm from  one 2% inch port with a residual pressure of six pounds. Without the pump  this hydrant only produces 280 gpm with  a residual pressure of four pounds; or  with two porta of 2% inch open gives 300  gpm at two pounds residual pressure.  Our 2 % inch nozzles are capable of  producing 250 gpm each. It would acem  then that our two nozzlea capabW'of a  total of 600 gpm being used aro left short  of water. With additional lines needed as  well, thero was a shortage of water to  produce tho effective flro streams required to reduce the flro involvement and  each additional lino used was only robbing another in use.  The firemen, as unpaid volunteers, are  justly concerned over the protection of  the families and homes or institutions  they are pledged to protect. They have  accepted their responsibility and have  attempted only to make those on council,'or those responsible for its priorities,  aware of its duty to the public and taxpayer.  If this attitude is *pushy* it may only  seem so by those not really concerned  about vthe. taxpayers'   welfare,   but has  become a costly lesson to the community.  RON LEACHMAN  Public Relations officer  Gibsons Volunteer Fire Department  Similarities noted?  Edittor, The News  Sir: I am reading Albert Speer's book,  "Inside the Third Reich". This is a most  enthralling book, bought from Books and  Stationery, Cowrie Street, Sechelt.  ���Those of you who are old enough will  rernertfber that Speer began as an architect, graduating thence to designing for  Hitler the "greatest buildings the world  has ever seen." (Now where have I heard  that expression before). Then to the pos-  iton of Hitler's chief of armaments production, topping it off with a 20-year  stretch in Spandau jail, guest of the Nuremberg War Crimes ��� Commission.  In view of the certain political goings-  on in "the greatest nation the world has  ever seen" I cannot resist, sir, writing  a paragraph from page 443. After a series of double crossings of each other by  Hitler and his entourage, Speer writes:  "Nevertheless, even this episode did  not shake my faith in Hitler. At best it  made me begin to doubt the rectitude of  this system of rule. Thus, I was outraged  that the leaders continued to exempt  themselves from any of the sacrifices  they expected of the people: That they  recklessly expended lives and property;  that they pursued their sordid intrigues,  showing themselves as totally unethical  even toward each other.  "I was beginning to bid farewell to  my previous life, tasks, ties and to the  thoughtlessness which had brought me to  this pass."  Any similarities?  j. s. Drowning  RR 1, Sechelt.  Who benefits from roads?  Editor's note: The following letter,  written by Allan J. Crane of Gibsons,  was addressed to the chairman of the  Sunshine Coast Regional District technical planning committee. The author submitted a copy to the editor of the Penin-  aula Tinges for publication.  *��� Dear Slr>     i'  I most heartily concur with the sentiments expressed In Mr. and Mrs. L, H.  Bromhn _ letter concerning the proposed  highway system for the Sunshlno Coast  which was printed In tho Peninnula Times  of July 11 undor tho appropriate heading 'What Price Progress'.  One of the questions wo should be  asking ouraelves In thla regard is, for  whose benefit are tho proposed three independent east-west corrldorfc designed?  Tlw technical planning committee's statement, "tho emphaflia is on a complete  major street network from Langdale to  ' they are adopted. I believe that the majority, like Mr. and Mrs. Broman and myself, would want to reject any such proposals because of the only too foreseeable consequences.  ALLAN J. CRANE  ,    P.O. Box 74, Gibsons  cc The Editor, Peninsula Times  'Emotional journalism'  criticized by reader  Editor, The Times:  Sir���As one resident of Roberts Creek  who is not "up in arms" about the events  of the long weekend, I must say that it...  has been some time since I have read  such a. blatantly over-emotional piece of  journalism as Dick Proctor's coverage, in  "Sunshine Coastings," of the "happening  at the General Store. ��� Reduced to its  essentials, the article seems to boil down  to one beautifully lucid self-contradiction:  Mr. Proctor seems, on the one hand, to  be unable to produce and concrete report  of malicious 'behavior, or even legal misdemeanor, let alone -an outright crime, on  the part of any, of the participants in the  "happening," be they "biker" or "hippy",  and on the other hand to issue a stern  warning to the community and call ominously for "action," presumably to prevent  any such occasion occurring in the future.  May I say, without pride or embarrass-  bothered to look behipd the bar).vIt is  regrettable that the fire trucks were parked in. Many people came here from-Vancouver to  attend the dance,  and they  probably didn't look for  "no parking"  zones in what to them was a country  back road. And of course, as in any large  group, there are those who don't care  what they do as long as their convenience  is served. I would suggest to Glen Kraus  that he indeed haul away any vehicles  blocking the fire trucks, and that he make  sure he is well-paid for his trouble before  the owners reclaim them. Such a policy  would soon put an end to parking violations on Hall Road. If we are prepared  for this kind of thoughtlessness, it becomes merely a nuisance, not a danger.  As for the hall being overcrowded,  here  again,   the~ problem   is  relatively^  minor because it is easily rectifiable. The  sponsor of any dance should be responsible for maintaining municipal regulations. If the hall is licensed for a maximum, crowd of 300, let this be made clear  to anyone using the hall, and let such  people be penalized if the regulations are  not observed. What could be more simple?  / 'My point in exariiiriirig these accusations, the only tangible, ones I could see  in the article,, is to shbw^that,, absolutely  nothing of extrabfidinaiy malevolence occured at any time during the long weekend.

Snapping together Hie frame���no tools are needed.  limes photo-story  By Dick Proctor  SEOHBLT���-Paddling Peter Trappitt and  his first-mate-wife Gladys are ready  to take their kayak to the waters of the  B.C. coast again this summer.  That's not too unusual until you consider that Peter.and Gladys are 76-4he  age when most people their age are  watching the world go by and the fastest  thing they are in are their rocking chairs.  Not so the Trappitts.  With their inflatable Klepper kayak  ���"'the Cadillac of kayaks"���the Trappitts  took it out of storage the other day and  for the benefit of The Times camera  put it together in just under 30 minutes  ���which you'll have to admit is pretty  fast moving in itself. i  The kayak is kept in a couple of neat  bundles all winter and with the nice weather Mr. and Mrs. Trappitt feel the urge  of Burf beneath their keel and the spray  in their faces again.  Kayaking and canoeing is not new to  the Sechelt pair. They spent their honeymoon in 1.28 canoeing up Indian Arm to  Wigwam Inn and in later years canoed  from Nanaimo to B-llingham and New  Westminster to OlympJa plus other trips.  WOT STRENUOUS '  This year's adventure is not going to  bo that strenuous, satd Peter, they will  not travel too far. But they admitted that  they have explored moat of this area in  what they describe as their almost un-  capslzolble kayak. By the time they put  their splash cover on, they'll be snug,  dry and aible to take most kinds of weather.  They purchased their 17-foot kayak  in 1004 when they decided to retraco  their trip by canoe in 1030 from New  Westminster to Olympln.  In 1030 the couple left the old fishermen's wharf at tho Canadian Pacific  Railway depot in New Westminster for  tho trip and 34 years later they left on  tho exact same trip. The first trip took  14 days but In 10(1 . the weather was  against them and it took them seven  days Just to make Bclllngham when they  decided to coll It quits. They were 07  then.  Their compact German-made kayak  weighs only albout 150 pounds fully loaded with their equipment ond will carry  up to' 1,000 poundH.  Thoy bought tho koyuk from a person who purchased it after it was on  display, at Seattle Fair in 1962.  "We got a darn good buy on it," said  Peter, "otherwise we couldn't have afforded it." The kayak is very popular  with members of canoe and kayak clubs  and is considered one of the best that  you can buy.  SNAPS TOGETHER  "When we got the kayak we had a  hell of a time assembling it," Peter said.  The instruction were in translated German, he said and extremely difficult to  follow.  Watching the Trappitts put it together, it looks like child's play. Every part  fits neatly together and no tools are heeded to assemble it. When it's assembled  Peter puts his own flag on it���a dogwood  superimposed over a Union Jack.  .Kayaking and canoeing are not the  Trappitts' only hobbies. Peter designs outstanding illuminations such as were presented recently to members of the Sechelt library for their outstanding work  in the community, another hangs in the  hospital lobby. Gladys is a highly skilled carver and seamstress. There are probably a few more crafts they have which  will be brought out some other time.  Peter's a bugler, too.  ONCE A SOLDIER...  He's a retired regimental sergeant  major and when he and Gladys were llv-  , ing in Pender Harbour in 1951, Viscount  Alexander, then governor-general of Canada, visited Gunboat Bay and he found  himself soldiering again���a bugle call  across the water to regulate life on tho  governor-general's yacht.  When the yacht Walithy dropped anchor in the bay its vice-regal standard  was recognized by RSM Peter Trappi*'  MBE, retired. ���  Trappitt, who used to call v'.._ cows  home with his bugle before he moved,  from a Fraser Valley farm to a beachfront cottage at Gunboat Bay, took the  ancient horn from its place and welcomed  the distinguished visitor with the staccato notes from the general salute.  The ^Trappitt's real exploits have to be  their canoe trips, however.  In 1928 they completed an eight-day  trip by canvass-covered canoe from Nanaimo to Bellingham. Biggest problem,  said Peter were rip tides and high  winds. The couple island hopped front  B.C.'s Gulfs to Washington's San Juans  and they were buffeted by high winds  and heavy rains most of the way.  In 1930 the paddling Trappitts successfully completed a 15-day canoe trip  from the Fraser River to Olympia. Rough  weather seems to be their bugaboo and  although the 300-mile trip was made  without mishap they were buffeted much  rough weather, tide rips, adverse currents  and head winds.  The Trappitts have many other  adventures on the high seas which should  make some fascinating reading if Peter  and Gladys ever take the time to write  , their memories, l  That won't be for soifte time as the  Trappitts have a lot of living to do yet.

"Wei, how about chicken?" I asked brightly.  "No, we're all sick of chicken  dishes too," they chorused. "We need  a more varied menu around this  place." v  "Wtaat," I demanded, "could be  more varied than meat loaf, porcupines, hamburger stroganoff, meat  ball- with gravy, hamburgers and  Salisbury steak for one week's  menus?"  "Just one thing," they answered.  "They're all made from Ihe same  basic ingredient."  "True, but they all have different  names," I said smugly, "so, that way  it doesn't really seem like you're  having the .same thing every night.  Besides, I often alternate with good  old chtefeen.'' ���  "You said that other word again,"  groaned my husband, "what's wrong  with some nice juicy steaks lor a  change?", .  '"Steaks?" My voice range had  reached a markedly high-pitched  tone. "It's far too expensive to just  simply cook and eat," I said. "It  should be collected and stored in a  treasure vault along with things like  gold bullion and pieces of B.C. lumber."1  ��� "I hope the vault is air-condi1_on-  ed," said someone trying to be  smart.  From behind the butcher block  table another voice queried^ "how  about fresh salmon steaks?"  "Yes," said my husband," in a  seaside place like this, we should be  eating more salmon. It must be reasonably priced."  "Where have you been living," I  asked, "in a vacuum, or have you  been on a sabbatical to a distant planet which did not have a meat counter?  "The only way salmon's cheap is  if someone catches one and gives it  to you"  ! "Maybe &ince meat's so expensive, we should try being vegetarians  for awhile," said my teenager.  "But I thought we are AngKcans,"  said another youngster.  "You dummy, a vegetarian isn't  a religion," _aid someone else. "It's  a person who doesn't eat meat."  "WeU," I said, "it just wouldn't  work. "I'd never know whether to  serve a red or white Wine With the  dinner. Now, is anyone interested in  dishing up the chicken casserole?"  Driver fined,  restricted  SECHELT���Roy Carby  was  fined  $300  July  13 for driving with more than  the permitted amount of alcohol in his  blood.  Provincial court was told that a police  officer on patrol at Davis Bay stopped  Carby after clocking him at 60 mph.  Accused  showed signs  that he   had  been drinking, the crown alleged, and a  subsequent breathalyzer test gave a reading of .12. The legal maximum is .08.  ,    Carby admitted the charge.  In addition to the fine, Judge Charles  Mittlesteadt restricted Carly to driving  during working hours for three months.  Under other court news 'Bill St. Jean  pleaded guilty by letter to driving without insurance. His mother represented  him in court.  Court was told that June 26 near Madeira Park, St. Jean and two parties in  , two other cars were involved in a high-  ; way accident.  Investigating officers  found that  St  , Jean had no insurance.  He was fined $250.  Powell River resident Robert Durling  travelled to Sechelt to contest a traffic  violation, - hlch ho termed "unwarranted  and unji .".  Const. William Shuttleworth claimed  that Durling passed two  vehicles near  ^ Davis Bay while unsafe (p do so.  ��� A car coming in the opposite direction  �� had to swerve to avoid Durling, he said.  �� Durling claimed it was safe to pass  t since, the vehicles in front of him were  ��� travelllnf slowly. Ho told the court he  ;did not see any cars coming in tho op-  ��� poaito direction.  Const. Shuttleworth said Durling was  ��� travelling between 40 and 45 m|>h in tho  30 mph zone.  Judge Mittlesteadt found that tho violation did take place and ordered details  to be sent to tho Motor Vclucles Branch.  THERE'S salmon somewhere on the ship.

Adventure site envy of many  classroom-bound  PORT Alberni high school students have  discovered an "outdoor classroom" and  adventure site on the west coast of Vancouver Island which would be the envy  of Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn.  It's a remote promontory, stretching  into Pacific Ocean waters, which becomes an island at high tide.

Although the site at Kennedy Cove is  within MacMillan BloedeFs Kennedy Lake  Division, there are few traces of man.  A small abandoned fish cannery is nearby  and there are traces of early Indian settlements and European visitors, for these  are waters once sailed by Captain Cook,  Spaniards, Russians and other explorers  and fur traders.  Discovered by students and the staff  of A. W. Neill Junior Secondary School  ' in Port Alberni, the site was recognized  immediately as an ideal site for an "outdoor classroom" for environmental education for all senior school students in the  area. School district authorities approached MacMillan Bloedel with the proposal  and the forest industry company arranged a lease of the 65-acre promontory.  Kennedy Cove is accessible over the  public highway which runs from Port Alberni to the new Pacific Rim Park and  over 13 miles of MB logging roads.  A group from A. W. Neill school established the "outdoor classroom". Accompanied on a recent visit by teacher  assistant Jim Moncur, an experienced out-  doorsman and canoeist, the boys travelled  in two pick-up trucks and a car; loaded  with supplies, four canoes and an aluminum boat. At the end of the logging road  the supplies were loaded into the canoes  and the boat, which were manhandled  down to the water, and Uie party paddled  a few hundred yards to the camp.  Principal Jim Cavers and vice-principal Bob Hastie are fully behind the project. Said the principal:  "The boya and girls are teaming to  work as a group and aa individuals. We  consider the camp an extension of tho  school where students carry out assignments of an academic nature, n_ well aa  learning such things as survival training  and water safety.  "They learn to use the environment���  not Abuse it"  Cavers pointed out the site Is Ideal  for  flailing,   canoeing, fishing  and fresh  and salt water studies. The students comb  the large tidal flats for shellfish and other  inter-tidal marine life and study wildlife  and migratory birds.  "In addition," said Cavers, "the Mc-  Kenzie (mountain) Range and the Klitsa  Wilderness area are not far away and  they provide $tudies in flora and fauna  as well as having great potential for survival training, camping and climbing."  Last year the school sent about 30  boys' and girls to the developing campsite. The youngsters live in school tents,  do all their own cooking, bring fresh water by canoe from a creek about a quarter  of a mile away on the Kennedy River.  Trout, readily taken in a pool above the  Kennedy River rapids, are frequently on  the menu.  A special adventure is a canoe trip  across adjacent Tofino Inlet to outer islands where new picnic and study locations are charted for future use.  And if you were wondering about the  old Indian burial cave, relocated by a  group of the boys, it still contains the  mummified body of a young Indian in a  broken cedar chest. Respecting Indian  traditions, the students are careful never  to tamper with it.

BRITISH Columbia's economy continued  buoyant throughout 1972, according to  B.C. Hydro's 11th annual report.  The report noted increases in consumed spending and in the manufacturing,  mining, agriculture and fishing industries.  "The value of ^exports through ports  in British Columbia rose to a record of  more than $3 billion, the principal increases being in shipments to United  States and Japanese markets," the report  said. .'.' .'i  It observed that B.C.'s population rose  an' estimated 2.8 per cent during the year  compared with 1.2 per cent for the rest of  Canada.  The report, which covers the year  ended March 31, 1973, also said the value  of production in the province's mining  industry increased for the 14th. consecutive year.  Hydro (completed electric extensions to  many" major projects, especially mines,  during the year.  Housing starts in Canada and the U.S.  reached record highs during the year;  as a result, there was an increase in  demand for wood products from B.C,  manufacturers.  In the Lower Mainland;' a number of  large commercial developments; including  office buildings, hotels and shopping cen-"  tres, were completed during the year and  others were under construction at year's  end. Hydro complet-d electric circuits to  ' Royal Centre and Bentall Centre Tower  IH in Vancouver.  Throughout the province, Hydro con-  nected more than 200 new electric services to schools, churches, recreational  facilities, hospitals and rest homes during the year.  v In 1972-73, the provincial government  made a grant of $3 million to Hydro for  rural electrification. This enabled the  utility to extend financial assistance to  209 projects serving 940 customers along  554 miles of distributipji lines.   *'  Increases were recbrded in sales pf  gas, by Hydro to all categories of customers. '.'... -  The annual report said Hydro applied  to the federal government in June, 1972,  to support a research and development  project for a system to monitor automatically the location of transit vehicles and  to count passengers.  In January, 1973, the Transportation  Development Agency of the federal Min- _���  istry of Transport approved grants to  Hydro and a local manufacturer to design and develop a system for monitoring  vehicles, The purpose of this research  project, Hydro's annual report explained,  is to provide central control,of vehicles  to assist in maintaining schedules. .  Construction has started on 230,000-  volt transmission lilies between Arnott  and Kidd substations in Delta and Vancouver and from the Burrard Thermal  Generating-Station hear Port Moody to  Murrin Substation ih ��� Vancouver.

His work includes Tales the Totems TelL  ABE HORSES DUMB?  By Hugh Weaiherby  All my life I've been trying to figure  out whether horses were dumb, or not.  My. first solo experience with horses  came about the time my mother decided  I looked better, in bib overalls than three-  cornered pants, and turned me over to  our barnyard horse of all work, Rusty.  By and large. Rusty and I got along fine;  Rusty was right easy to get along with,  so long as he always got his own way.  There was the business of getting  onto Rusty*s back. This operation requir-  , ed the use of a corral fence, a sawhorse,  or the big tin watering trough. Rusty  would wait patiently until, with the help  of one of these articles, I climbed into a  position where I could mount, then, with  a soulful sign, he'd move off a foot, just  12 inches, never more. This meant that  I had to climb down, dock him all over  again, like a tug with a liner, climb back  up on my perch to a position from which  I could mount��� if Rusty stayed put.  On a bad day, Rusty would step away  his usual foot every time, just at the  critical moment. This aggravating, little  real-life drama would be repeated until,  breathing horrible threats and shedding.  tears of rage, I would search frantically  for a club. Once I had my weapon firmly  in hand, nothing could be easier than  climbing onto Rusty's back; in fact, had  he been physically able, he would have  given me a leg up.  Rusty's ability to'guage my temper  exactly convinced me that he was "a  smart horse, then two things happened to  change nay mind.  We had a very large corral on bur  place, just at the edge of town���Rosthern,  , S_skatchewan���and while my father operated a couple of farms nearby, most of  the livestock was kept at the "town"  place. We used mules almost exclusively  ' for the farm work, and the horses on the  place usually consisted of a saddle horse,  or two, and my father's driving horses,  Hassen, Icing and a mare, Pacer.  At feeding time, if there happened to  be a large number of stock on hand, a  wagon-load of grain or chop was driven  up a ramp, and dumped into the'feedbox,  loose. The mules were turned loose as  mugh W���".vr_ieR6y  When I tried to mount him Rusty moved over 12 inches  soon as they were pnhitched; they always  made a bee-line for the big water trough  and a very light drink, not more than a  couple of swallows. They would then  partake of a frugal bite or two of grain  or chop, before they started their leisurely roll in the dust. When tbey felt properly cooled out they would return to the  water trough, drink a bellyfull of water,  and fill up on grain. We never, never  turned horses loose with the mules, if  there was feed in the feedbox���except,  once.'  This particular day, Rusty pushed in  with the mules, and no one happened to  notice. He dove for the water trough. He  drank the cold water in great greedy  gulps, until his belly was as round as   Wednesday, July 18,1973  knew how to use his shoulders, and even  his-teeth, on occasion.      _  Riding  Pegasus  was  like  sitting in  a rbcking chair; if you weren't in a hurry,  the friendly little horse provided a comfortable way of getting where you were in ..  no hurry to go.  . :y v'-'. z'-��� .'y:       ���.:'';. y ,  , x But like all. horses, in  some^ ways  Pegasus was dumb. I used to catch him  by scrubbing my hands together to'make  a sound that vaguely resembled the sound  grain makes when you rub it between  your hands.  He never failed to come -  running, despite the fact that only rarely  , was there any grain for: him when he  got there. He always insisted on looking  in my hands, then wearing a hurt expression, allowed himself to be saddled;  Pegasus was dumb about a tether, too,  , and never got used to a picket rope, which  made him a pain in the neck on a trip.  You -could depend on it, he'd be in a  tangle when you returned to camp, if you  tethered him. He spent half the nights of  his life tangled up in a picket rope, while  all around him similarly tethered horses  grazed in comfort, without the slightest  inconvenience.  Pegasus became'a mine pony after I  sold him, for months I felt badly about  it. Mine ponies are never brought up into  the sunlight, once they go underground,  and eventually go blind.. Had I known he  was going to the mines, I would never  have sold him. One day I happened to be  in the neighborhood of the mine, and  decided to stop in and see the little horse.  He met me at the office door, offered a  front foot, just as he always had, and  made several suggestive hints that he  would accept any gifts of food I happened  to have in my pockets. The mine manager  stood in the doorway, grinning.  I asked, "Us this just for me?*  He shook his head, "Standard procedure. He's our official greeter. We work  him a feiy shifts a week, to keep the  fat off, or if one of the other horses is  sick, but mostly he stays above ground,  doing the chores that require a horse,  and greeting visitors. He sells more  damned coal! Good thing he sticks ..around  teeth to tell much more than we already  knew, that he was old. We often argued  about whether he had always been grey,  or whether it was a mark of old age. In  his youth, so the story, went, Boston had  been bitten on the nose by a rattler, and  he never forgot it. If a ball of tumble-  weed rattled in a fence corner, or a piece  of paper  wind-flipped under his nose,  Boston made his big jump. Those jumps  used to be embarrassing, if you happened  to be asleep in the saddle, as I often was  on the way home. When you woke up,  Boston would be, gone, and you'd be on  your way back to earth, literally. It was  quite a drop to the ground from where  Boston  left  you. sitting,  too,.- but  he'd  always wait for you to limp over and  climb back into the saddle, a look of  apology on his homely pan.,.'.'_,.-;..'  Boston never learned that there were  no rattlers in our part of the coimtry, in  spite of the fact that he didn't see a iign  of one in the 15 or so years he spent with  US'.> ���   �����   'v  ������-������' * ''v- ���'���'���������'.-'���  Boston   died . on    our    place.    We  I')  couldn't sell him because he always came  home. Dad said we'd put him out to pasture, but we never did because he'd hang '  around the corral, watching, and ���somebody with a knotheaded horse would  suddenly ask,"Why do I have to wrestle  this dog, when Boston's standing around.  dying to work?" -  So Boston, who loved to work, never  did get pensioned offk and neither did he  ever lack for a rider, but I still maintain '  that a horse that can't, get over a snake  scare in 15 years is kinda dumb.  They say the guy who wrote that song,  "Farewell, Old Paint, I'm Bound For  Cheyenne," turned his pinto loose, got  aboard the train, and with tears in his  eyes, wrote the much-sung tune. The  pinto, according to the story, only" looked  up long enough just once, to make sure  the cowpoke was really gone, then went  on with his grazing. You can't expect  even ahorse to be dumb enough to worry  about where a guy went, who'd write a  . song as. bad as that one.  AM  mi  an apple, then assaulted the grain-filled  "without being tied, though, because he  to   fill   out   any   remaining  -���v  Boston's big jump  HiJ��n vve^rHeRQ>/  Pegasus thought ov^rybody lovod him and I guttss they did  feed-box  wrinkles.  Rusty became ill rapidly; he nearly  died! His feet were sore for.a month! He  had foundered himself with his gluttony.  This proved to me that Rusty had  less sense than a mule, any mule, not just  the smart ones.       ���  Proof of the wisdom of this sage observation was pointed up for me a few days  later, as a terrifying storm broke on us;  I think it was in 1915. The hailstones  came suddenly, as large as hen's eggs,  and with the velocity of professionally-  pitched baseballs. There was no time to  get the stock in; the poor mules and  Rusty were marooned in the corral. The  mules kicked and Rusty kicked; it was  horrible to watch without being able to  do help the stricken.animals.  Then one mule left: the tbunchux ^tat  dropped on his side under the edge of  the lower corral bars, and kicked himself, to freedom. In a few seconds he was  safe inside the bam. The other mules  immediately followed the leader's example, but not Rusty! He watched the mules  gain shelter, but made no attempt to  follow. The hail broke all the windows on  one side of the house, ruined the cedar  siding, and pounded our giant Virginia  creeper, my mother's pride end joy, to  a pulp. Rusty kicked and bucked through  the entire course of the storm, while the  .mules watched from the barndoor.  Rusty, despite his many good qualities,  wasn't very smart.  The next horse I remember well was  a big, black trotting stud, a Dan Patch  colt, named Don Alamo. Now, Don could  really step, and when my father brought  him home from Omaha, we all agreed  that he'd bought himself something special; he sure had!  For the first few months, during the  training period, Don acted like a gentleman horse should act. Dad raced him  locally, and he won most of his starts  handily, despite the fact that there were  soijne pretty good harness horses in Saskatchewan in those days.  Next, Dad took Don Alamo to Winnipeg, where he won his first heat, the first  time out, without half trying. Everyone  looked around, and asked one another,  "Who owns the big black?"  The smart money, including a bundle  of Dad's, went right on Don's nose. He  started the second heat fine, trotted easily  for a hundred yards, then stopped dead in  his tracks, and for no apparent reason,  kicked hia cart to pieces. Don trotted back  to his barn, leaving his driver, silks and  all, sitting in the middle of the track, saying emphatic words that were more connected with the anccstory of dogs than  horses.  Don never won another race, and  nhortly after Dad returned home, cheat-  fallen and light of purse, he sol* the  horso to a veterinary. That gentleman  performed a, slight operation on Don Alamo which turned him pltfmb docile,  permanently. The big black spent the rest  of his llfo hauling the vet's buggy over  country roadf*. AH Don Alamo had to do  was bphave himself long enough to win  a couple, maybe three big races, which  ho had more than enough speed to do,  and he'd havo npcnt tho real ot bin life at  stud. You can't tell me HE was smart! .  Pegasus I acquired in a horse trade.  Ho was n runt Clydesdale, perfect in  every respect eoccopt that instead of  weighing tho 1,400 pound or more of a  normal Clyde, he scaled out at less than  000 pounds. Ho was a nice light bay, with  a white ntor on hlu forehead, and four  white stockings. There wasn't a blemish  on him, including his disposition. Ho  couldn't run fast enough to keep warm,  but ho qure tried. Hia abort, thick legM  would go like mad, taking him where ho  wan headed at what even a very charitable person would admit waa a very  moderate rate of horse speed.  He was a pleasant character, and partly made up for hia lack of speed by hia  ability to manouver In close quartern.  Ho oould turn on a dime, never ntumbled,  and never flinched frorii the jrope, no  mattelf how close, it came to hia ears; it  waa a real pleasure to work him in ��  corral, with either horses w cattle. Ho  gets in the darndest mess with a tether."  My next horse was a big grey, named  Boston. He measured 17 hands, roughly  5 feet 8 inches, at the shoulder, and  roping off him made you feel like you  were riding the barn, However, despite  his size, he was a top-notch rope horse,  nnd really knew his business.  You never needed to worry about  wha. v.-ould happen when a roped  horse hi.' . ,*nd of your string. Boston  weighed nearly 1,300 pounds���huge for a  saddle horse���and he knew just how to  sit down to give, him the most leverage,  which took care of that problem. Many  of the plugs we roped were "rope wise",  some ex-rodeo mounts, and thought they  knew all the tricks; Boston was a great  disillusionment to them.  Boston was old when I got him, over  20, we figured, and away too old for his  SECHELT AGENCIES DATE PAD  ��� ���....'���������-.

Utility poles unsafe,  charges inspector  SEOHELT���Building    inspector Frank  Giampa claims there are at least nine  unsafe utility poles in the village, ready  to topple at the first high wind.  One of the most hazardous is located  behind the Village Cafe on Cowrie Street,  he told The Times.  Both he and restaurateur George Flores  reported the matter to B.C. Hydro over a  month ago and informed Mayor Ben  Lang, and Mrs. Phyllis Parker, owner of  the block served by the pole.  B.C. Hydro said the pole was the responsibility of B.C. Tel who in turn,  clpiimed Mrs. Parker was responsible.  And there the matter rests, said Giampa. Repeated requests for action to B.C.  Hydro, B.C. Tel and Mr3. Parker have  brought no results.  "One of these days, that pole will'fall  down  and maybe kill    someone," sold  Flores. "My two precious little girls play  out the back, and I can hardly do my  work for worrying about them.  "These people don't seem to want  to do anything until something serious  happens. AndNthen, it'll be too late."  Flores predicted that the entire block  could be set alight by broken power lines'  if the pole ever fell.

At Algeciras they had  a lovely hotel room for $5 a night which  gave them a view right on to the Rock  of Gibraltar. Here they left their car and  took a ferry across to Tangier on the  Spanish and Portuguese coast to Lisbon.  They enjoyed both" Spain and Portugal  very much, with fine weather" and rea-,  sonable prices.  From Lisbon they flew to Edinburgh  by way of London. Edinburgh they  thought was one of the loveliest places  they saw on their trip���and certainly the  greenest. The Scots they found extremely friendly and helpful. Here again they  rented a car an~drove down the east  coast of Scotland and England as far -  as London for their return flight. They  had beautiful weather throughout their  trip.  Two friends of the Sextons, Mr. and  Irs. Bob Rose, who had travelled with  .hem as far as Lisbon, 16ft Jhem.ta make  a quick trip to Irelandywhere Mr. Rose  had spent some time during the last war.  They were in a train travelling between  Belfast and Dublin when _ocks were  thrown at the train, smashing the winy  dows, and Mrs. Rose received cuts* which  necessitated a visit to hospital. The Roses  wish now they had taken advice which  they had received on all sides to; keep  away from Ireland during these troubled  times. N s.  Recent guests of Mrs. Mary Walker at  Welcome Beach were her niece and husband, Mr. and Mrs. Ted Wilson of North  Vancouver. They arrived in a 31-foot  sailboat which. Mr. Wilson had built himself. They travelled up the coast as far  as Cortes Island.  Guests of Patrick Murphy are his  sister, Mrs. Margaret Gates of Liverpool  and Bill Shendon of Wigan, Lancashire,  England. Spending their vacation at the  home of their aunt, Mrs. Archie Rutherford are twins Dana and Doreen Spence  of Vancouver. Visiting his sister, Mrs..

Forest Service survey crews completed 225 miles of road location during  1972.  ���by Pastor Gerry Foster,  Gibsons Pentecostal Church  CENTURIES ago the Romans used crucifixion as a means of executing rebels, thieves and criminals. There were  different types of crosses used and usually,  this type of punishment was. reserved for  slaves and the lowest type of criminal. It  was a symbol of humiliation' with the Romans. But most noteworthy is the fact  that it was a symbol of humiliation  with God Himself. The Bible says, "cursed be everyone who hangs on a tree."  There was one cross which became  famous and many songs have been written  about it. One of them is perhaps the most  well-known church hymn ever, 'The old  rugged cross*. The cross is the crux of  Christianity. It represents the_jjeath of  Christ, the one who died in your place.  You might think this cross business is  foolish. WeU. the Bible says it is foolish  -^"the word.of the cross is folly to those  ;perishing, but to us who $re being saved  it is the power of God." \ yy'  . What is it tq you my friend?

Olaussen, a former merchant seaman,  waws speaking'on a privae member's motion which urged that the government  consider reviving the Canadian merchant  marine.'  Olaussen criticized the shortsightedness of previous governments that prevented the retention of a Canadian deep-sea  fleet after the second world war. ���  "We must be longsighted in the interests of the Canadian taxpayer," said. Olaussen, "we must develop a policy  through which it will be economically  feasible to develop a deep-sea merchant  marine to serve the. interests of this  country."  "Canadian deep-sea shipping has helped -great deal towards the development  of this country,' Olaussen said. "We must  reinstate this service in order that.the  young people of Canada can serve in it  and see the world."  . Olaussen further stated that increased employment in the shipping industry  and other industries directly and indir  ectly associated with it will result from  the establishment of a deep-sea merchant  marine. . ~~  "I hope very sincerely," said Olaussen in conclusion, "that the government  will carry out a policy which will re  flect its interest in the needs of this country, a policy to serve tile needs of Canada in the future.'  to  ,.. the economics professor who rode  class each day on a business cycle.

Project JonAand the foundation will  conduct excursions in the' straits which  will provide an opportunity for people in- -  terested in whales to observe the killer  whale ha its natutal habitat, said Paul  Spong, Pacific representative of Project  Jonah. y -:   v  Johnstone Straits and such surround-,  ing waters as Blackfish Sound are home  to more than 100 killer whales during the  summer and falL They apparently come  into the area primarily to teed off the ,  salmon which are abundant at that time  of the year.  The killer whale is a very efficient  hunter, said Dir. Spong. Pods or family  groups of whales of ten coordinate their  o hunting efforts for^ periods of several  hovu-s, systematically herding the salmon, ,  surrounding them and then taking turns  feeding."  -Alert Bay, from where the excursions  will originate, is known as the'home of  the HUer whale. The creature has been  well-known to local inhabitants for many  hundreds of years.      _  Kwatkiutl mythology, , both ancient  and modern, is richly steeped with stories  and thoughts about the killer whale. Some  of them are represented in the many totem poles to be found in Alert, Bay.  The whale-watching excursions will be  led by Dr. Spong, a scientist who has been  studying whales in the Johnstone Straits  region for several years.  Persons interested in the excursions  or other aspects of the killer whale should  write to: Project Jonah, PO Box 372, Alert  Bay.  Greene court housing  committee named  SECHELT���When a board meeting of the  Sunshine Coast Senior Citizens' Housing Society was held at Greene Court  committee room July 9, the president,  Frode Jorgensen, welcomed the new members to the board.  Plans were made for blacktopping the  road on the property, but the chief business of the meeting was the appointment  of committees for the year ahead.  In charge of admissions will be Miss  t Adele de Lange, Mrs. Ben Firth,  Mrs.  ' Mary Walker and Don Hadden. Mrs. Sam  Dawe and Harold Nelson will continue as  ~ house cOrmhittee with the' assistance of  Mrs. Bob Kent and William Nielsen. The  finance committee will be composed of  the treasurer,. Mrs. E. F. Cooke, Miss de  Lange, Mrs. M. Tinkley and Nielsen.  Mrs. Tinkley continues as secretary  but will be assisted by Mrs. Peter Yates  who will take over the duties of membership secretary. There are still a few  memberships outstanding and members  can send their dues to Mrs. Yates at Box  165, Sechelt.  . Have you taken a look at Greene Court  recently? This gracious and attractive  complex is looking even gayer than ever  with the lovely lawn furniture donated  by the L. A. to Branch 140 Canadian Legion. Area residents can support this project by membership in the society which  operates it. Dues are $2 for the first year,  and $1 for subsequent years. There is a  special annual rate of $3.50 for group  (organization) membership and new members in this class will be most welcome.  r  .-:v.-.

'  ���        ������������''.���->   '       '  Elder Gibbons  and Elder Haroldsen  are the present missionaries on the Sun- %  shine Coast sharing with .'families a"-_m-~  ily home evening program,    y.  _ The first presidency of the church  said: "The holding of family home evenings, which has long been encouraged  by the church, Was given added emphasis  in 1965. Since then the spiritual lives of  many "families have been enriched by  their gathering together once each week  in a family-centered experience.  "In the past several years we have  seen new and sophisticated forces of. evil  at work contending for the allegiance of  our people, particularly our young.  The  family home  evening  program, ,  with its power for good, has been of great-  assistance to.parents. Every effort we can.  make to foster meaningful and close family relationships will help the home serve  as a sanctuary from evil and become a  source of strength to. each family member, ''������.��� '���"' '      At' '  ���"In our. home evenings, and other  positive family experiences, we can fill  our souls with the things' of God, thus  leaving no room for evil to find a place  in our hearts or minds."  Family home evening, is a program,  which will increase love, understanding,  communication, and fun for all members  of the family, said the missionaries. It  is the most successful program for family solidarity and enjoyment in the world  today.     V  "The home is the first and most effective place for children to learn the lessons df, iiie: truth, honor, virtue, self->  control; the value of education, honest  work, and the purpose and privilege Of  life.. Nothing can take the place of home  in rearing and teaching children, and no'  other success can compensate for failure  iri the home," said the late David O.  McKay.  One night each week each family gets  together in the home and the whole evening , is devoted to the family. This  program can be adapted to families of  aU faiths. Monday night is set apart by  the church worldwide to hold family  home evening. There are no church meetings .or activities which interfere with  Monday nights.  During the most convenient evening  a spiritual lesson is usually given which  has been prepared by brie of the mem-  bars of the family. The lesson is adapted  to the size and age of the family; It is  .a time when each member of the family  can show and develop their talents. Important matters concerning the family can  b- discussed; A game or activity and. refreshments usually follow the lesson or ���  discussion.  What makes up a family home evening, whether it consists of a lesson, discussion or just an activity, is that the  family get together is opened and closed  with a word of prayer, said the two missionaries.

Batikjr^iegured  in Art Gallery Shop  SECHELT���Batik panels and hasti-notes  are the result of the interest shown  last year in the art workshop held here.  And so the Art Gallery Shop has a varied selection to choose from.  Pottery by Pat Gallagher, whose work  is much admired, is again available in  the shop, and there are hanging baskets,  teapots, and banks among the items.  Visitors to St. Mary's Hospital will  note the fine selection of the paintings  of local artists on display. They will be  changed monthly and may be purchased  through the Gallery or from the convener  Mrs. Virginia Crawshaw of West Sechelt.  Here, in less crowded areas than possible  in a gallery one may have a better idea  of their possibilities for one's own walls.  It is hoped this new feature will be of  interest to all.
