 f"  Graphic Indust  PORT MELLON��� An incident involving the day shift barge loading crew  at Port Mellon mill triggered the  walkout of millworkers last Friday.  Picket lines went up immediately.  , The strike came five days before the  announced strike date of July 16 when  the CPU, IWA, and PPWU were ex-   seven barge loaders after they had been  pected to close down most pulp and   accused of deliberately slowing down  paper operations in the province.  Ronald McPhedran. president of  CPU local 1119 at Port Melloi��i said the  walkout was a result of mill  management threatening to suspend  PICKETING PORT MELLON Friday  were from left, Dave Doran, Ron West,  John Pike and Stu MacKenzie.

District 46 School Board passed motions at  last week's meeting to apply to the Department of Education to purchase all of Lot IS  and half of Lot 12 in District Block 1331 for the  site of the new West Sechelt Junior Secondary  School and to approve in principle architect  plans for the school design... The School  Board had originally decided Lot 12 was the  best site for the new school and at a meeting  on July 4 an agreement was reached between  the board and the Highway Department that  1.55 acres on the northend of the lot would be  reserved for a future highway. (For complete  background see inside story.)  George KUUck, of Killick Metz Field  OTTAWA ��� SecheltrGlbsons airport has  been awarded a $100,000 assistance grant an  surveying for paving should start this week,  Transport Minister Jean Marchand announced tho grant last week. Tho $100,000 will  go toward the cost of paving tho airport  located In Wilson Creek,   ,  "Tho grant will contribute to the costs of  paving a 2,400 foot long by 75 foot wldo runway, a 150 foot by 1.60 foot parking apron nnd a  200 foot long by 30 foot wide taxi way.        >  ,  Tho minister snld the monoy was coming  out of a fund which provides $2 million annually In assistance toward tho development  ��,���,,of communlty.alrporta,,  Association, (the architect firm retained by  the board for the school design) told the  board, "Lot 13 was extremely suitable for the  school and actually much better than Lot 12."  According to Roy Mills, board secretary-  treasurer, lot 13 was not seriously considered  before because of very steep access and much  of its 12 acres appeared to be unusable.  "'Had we perservered and looked beyond  lot 12 we would have seen the possibilities for  lot 13. As it turns out the back two-thirds of lot  13 is as flat as lot 12," he said.  If the Department of Education agrees to  the board's suggested purchase the school  will be on 17 acres at a cost of $68,000.  Killick said there were no real  topographical problems with lot 13 and he  anticipated no problems with the building  because of few rock outcrops.  He said moving the school buildings onto  lot 13 and using part of lot 13 and half of lot 12  {or the playing field there would be a good  sound buffer zone between the school and  highway.  Although the Department of Education  normally only approves the purchase of 10  acres for a school this size, Mills said there is  a good chance thoy will approve purchasing  17 acres because the school is so close to tho  proposed highway and lt will need a sound  buffer zone.  Also, Killick said the whole school could be  built on lot 13 but the cost of excavation to  move the whole playing field onto lot 13 would  1)0 high. '���,'...'  Ho said the proposed location of the school  (peo picture Inside) would give it a good view  of tho Water and would glvo tho surrounding  community an excellent view of tho school.  The area In front of tho school la unusable  land because of Uio steep Incline, but the' road  access will fro less than eight por cent, tho  board was told.  Tho board has nn option on buying lot 12  and ha8 a statement from tho owner of lot 13,  loading operations.  The mill was given 20 hours strike  notice and by noon Friday all 150 day  workers were out of the mill.  William Hughes, resident manager of  the mill, said four people were involved  m the loading incident and, "the  slowdown commenced after the loading  drivers had a conference with members  of the strike committee.''  When asked why the drivers slowed  down Hughes said, probably as a reason  to trigger the present strike.  Before the actual walkout McPhedran said  working conditions in the mill were becoming  tricky. "Things were getting hot," he said, as  employees were working without a contract.  "There would have been one confrontation  after another so to stop the agony of  everybody we decided to shut the mill down,"  he said.  ��� In a telephone interview Friday morning  McPhedran said there was a ship expected  into the mill from the USA but it has been  delayed. The mill was loaidng the pulp onto  barges to get it outside Port Mellon by next  Wednesday, the designated day for the strike,  he said.  An observer said there was $4 million of  pulp stock sitting in the mill waiting for  shipment.  McPhedran said the loading drivers were  told to speed up or the crew would be  suspended. He said he could see no evidence  of the loading going any different than normal.  Doan MacKlam, mill industrial relations  manager, said he had no comment on the  loading operation other than it was going  satisfactory up to 12:30 p.m. Thursday and  after then "events that followed could not be a  surprise to the union executive."  He said nothing happens around-the mill  the union does not know about and likely  cannot cBhtrol.  TheriMs some inventory in stock but  nothing abnormal, he said. "Most stock is  destined for deep sea ships and how often they  come in depends how often we have enough  stock together. Some ships are loaded from  Vancouver."  Union and management had prepared a  shut down schedule for this Wednesday but  had to enact it last Thursday when the union  gave notice of the Friday strike.  - *Ifti-wever^^  disappointed in 'thelradvtime''''givehv'tis (20  hours). We understood there would be a 48  hour notice. Even 32 hours would have been  considered responsible, you cannot shut a  mill of this type down for a long time leaving  part of the process in the mechanism.  "Supervisory people are shutting it  down," he said.  Hughes said a massive fire prevention  campaign was being Undertaken and that  would be a fire and security watch carried out  by management while the mill was shut  down.  McPhedran said the local volunteer  firemen would be allowed through the picket  lines in the event of an emergency.  It was agreed by the two parties the picket  lines would go up at the mill entrance and not  the entrance to Port Mellon mill property so  service people could get to local residents  without problems,  In Socholt, Alderman Frank Leitner, co-   wh0 nlso owns lot 12, to sell lt to tho board for  chairman nlong with Gibsons Alderman BIU   tho snmo prlco per aero as lot 12  Laing, said ho was very happy to honr tho  news. .

VICTORIA - MLA Don Lockstead has  asked for preferential treatment for Sunshine  Coast residents In boarding ferries and free  ferry transportation for senior ciUzcns,  Speaking In tho legislature, Lockstead  asked Highways minister Robert Strnchan  about tho two possibilities,  "In my riding these ferries are our highways," Lockstead said, "No, resident can  travel anywhere wlUiout travelling on a  British Columbia ferry or a B.C. Department  of Highways ferry. Thoso ferries ore, in( cf-.  feet, our highways .., Wo do not liavo tolls on  our highways," Lockstead shldr  Whon anothor member suggested taking  tho ferry charges off altogether, Lockstead  replies, '(Good idea. Why not" ... Since  these ferries are our highways, I would  suggest Uiat pooplo in my riding who nro  permanent residents of tho aroa should havo  priority loading prlviledges.   ,  "Anothor point,.. I would like to ask the  minister (Straclinn) to consider free transportation for our senior citizens. Why not?  Why shouldn't our senior citizens bnvo tho  prlvllcdgo of travelling on our B.C, ferries or  Depwtmont of Highways ferries nt no co.it.  Why not?

The proposed bound^y changes under the federal election act finds the Sunshine  Coast in a very unusual position. \   After being for years one tiny corner of the massive Coast-Chilcotin riding, the  Sunshine Coast finds itself proposed to be sharing a member with jhe West Vancouver area. Before we were,overshadowed by geography, how it appears we will be  overshadowed by the population and influence of the West Vancouver area. We just  can't win.  According to Ottawa sources, the boundary readjustment proposals were to  follow lines of communication.  There is obviously little communication, between the Sunshine Coast and the  Powell River area, so having them out oithe siame riding we are in, is not much of a  loss. Losing Squamish is a bit more of a loss, but still not much. As Pemberton,  LUlooet, ^d the Interior centres ��� no loss at all. *  We have some obvious problems we share, with Horseshoe Bay, namely the  ferries so they're in.  West Vancouver? Well, apart from providing us with land���'���spiWefcan*'get;rfi,()m  here to Vancouver, what we have in common with West Vancouver in such terms  that we should share a member in Ottawa? h  When it comes right down to it, really nothing.  We are in the unique position of having a unique area with unique problems and  unique demand on a federal member. The chances of seeing a Sunshine Coast riding  are mighty slim, is a Sunshine Coast-West Vancouver alternative the next best  thing?  We probably will not know that until the person who will represent us in the next  election is chosen. (Providing the changes go through as proposed.) That person will  have to assure the Sunshine Coast residents that their interests will be heard in  Ottawa to a proper portion of the illustrious company in the proposed new riding./  There is another catch, of course. As development moves up the other side of  Howe Sound, there is a good possibility that the residents of Brittania and Squamish  may want to have their area included with West Vancouver and Horseshoe Bay  because of the geographical and socio-economic connection: They may petition the  hearings to have their area moved into what is designated as Coast-Capilano and out  of the riding to be known as Cariboo-Chilcotin.  Time will tell on that.  Although it will probably be three years before th6 boundary adjustments take  effect, the time to prepare any submission and give thei committe^^  mission is how. N^  The commission's sittings start September 12 and the closest one to the Sunshine  Coast is Vancpuver-on October 23,24 and 25.  Now is the time for any presentation.  r-T-7-f -��� /  FIFTEEN MINUTE LINEUPS of traffic  were not usual between Gibsons and  Sechelt this week as paving crews  resurfaced large sections of Highway  101.  PENINSULA  by Leslie Yates  isiiifrii -fivri -ji^trmmmtmmtttiistrtBm  JUST WHEN I thought I was beginning to  understand about strikes and stuff like that  along comes this Port MeUon thing.  The way I see it through a jaundiced eye is  that the union peopje don't want to strike and  the management want them to strike now.  What leads me to believe this is that someone  pointed out that the economy is poor and so  are the markets and, at the bargaining  table, the company can plead a poverty case  because profits are down and money is slow.  That's difficult to argue against. I mean when  money stays away, it stays away in droves.  Conversely the unions don't want a settlement now because that's a pretty smaU  piece of cake to get a chunk of. They would  perhaps like to wait until things started  getting back on the road to high profits and  then ask for their share.  At least, that was the way It seemed until  this thing happened at Port Mellon this week.  There, apparently, was a warehouse of pulp  which the company wanted shipped and the  men were not about to be rushed doing it. The  men were pulled off and the pulp Is sitting  there.  Now what they have done Is put the  company In a worse financial position so they  can go to the bargaining table and ask for a  cut of lt. That kind of blows my original  theory.  If you are considering the above as fact,  don't. It has nothing to do with the reality of  the situation and the internal workings of tho  labor-management thing Is still ns deep as  mystery to mo as lt ever was,  There Is one thing, though, which Irks me a  little. We havo a bunch of bakers who want to  go out on strike because they want tho same  amount of money as' meat cutters. A long  tlmo ago a teacher told me that you can't,  compare apples and oranges.      ,  I think a person should bo paid for tho  work dono nnd Uio responsibilities carried  and not demand a raise because someone else  got ono,  Raises should bo earned In terms of Increased production, achievement or  responsibility (all other things being equal,)  -...-SPEAKING of being-equal, community  newspapers mako nU kinds of an"  nounccmenta, marriages,' deaths, babies and  thnt sort of stuff. Well, tho' following Is  probably a community newspaper first.  Howie White or Ralncoast Chronicles  dropped by tho office the othor day nnd  proffered tho following (Ready with tho  trumpet fanfare?)  "Mr. Howie White, well known editor, and  Ms. Shirley Bennetts, late of S.

THE FACT that the Sunshine Coast  Justice CouncU suspended their regular  meetings over the summer caused one observer to crack: "I guess there's no justice in  the summer." Sitting here in this walnut .and  carpet fishbowl and watching the tanned,  summer people wander by on a day when the  mercury is pushing 30 proves there is no  justice in the summer as far as I'm concerned.  A STORY last week carried information  that the B.C. Municipal Financing Authority  borrowed $25 milUon In Europe. But not all  that money came from European countries. A  look at the prospectus reveals some of ttie 87  financial institutions are as foUows: Alahi  Bank of Kuwait, Arab Finance Corporation,  European Bank of Tokyo, First Boston,  Richardson Securities (Canada), N. M.  Rothschild & Sons, Swiss Bank Corporation,  Continental Illinois Ltd., Banquo deSuez et de  L'Union des Mines, and an Interesting one  called Banque Worms.  And one of the managing underwriters is  Merrill, Lynch, Pierce, Fenner and Smith.  How to solve a Juvenile delinquency  problem-- make birth control retroactive.  There's an untrue story going the rounds  about a softball game involving mill employees. Tho umpire hollered 'strike' and  they all walked off,  /  When the editor of this paper interviewed  me for this job he looked over my stuff and  decided there was a possibUity I could put  three words coherently together. (Boy did I  fool him) Then he looked up and asked me  what I thought of smaU towns, knowing that I  had never Uved in one of any length of time. I  thought for a second and reaJizedildito'tss  have too many poignant comments on the  topic. AU I could say was that I didn't like  cities. He didn't bother asking why, the >  reasons seem to be understood by smaU town  residents.  After being here for a month I've found I  likei small.''tov^<H much'''a^ I dislike cities!  Again reasons are pretty standard, no traffic,  no lineups, friendlier people and of course  Sechelt's great location. But, I've found  something about smaU towns that is rather  irksome. And that is people who use the  phrase, 'because it is a smaU town' one can do  this or that. Most people never use this phrase  as a rational'for their own behavior. In most  cases it is probably harmless any way, but  when I hear it in connection with business and  government I reaUy have to dp a-double take -���  and ask why.  One instance was connected with advertising and I went over that thoroughly last  week. If I did it again there might not be a  paper next week.  The other area concerned local government. A politician said to me that we can do  'if because this is a smaU community. The  'it' refers to the local government appearing  to take what amounted to a loan from a local  business interest. The local business interest  wanted something done that would cost the  village a-few thousand dollars. Although the  vUlage probably needed it done anyway,  there was some doubt as to whether the  village could afford the project as that time. ���  The business interest said he would pay to  have it done now because it was logical and  coincided with the work he was having done.  He said the viUage could pay him later. The  village said that was a very generous offer  and agreed to have the work done.  I really didn't think anything about that  little transaction at the time. Later o  politician said things like that could be done  in a small town and in fact it had happened  before. And then it dawned on me.  As newspapers can compromise their,  editorial positions trying to salvhge advertising, so can governments compromise  Uielr Interest in the people they represent by  putting themselves in n position to owe favors  to individuals in tho community.  I'm not saying this would ever happen In a  case like this, but the possibUity stiU exists. If  local governments heed money they don't  have for whatever length of time a loan  should be arranged with an institution like a  bank, which has no direct personal interest in  what the government is using the money for.  To say -because this is a.smaU townit cm  ISedorieh^  it is a smaU town but solely because the  principle involved is wrong and it would be  wrong anywhere.  Having somebody respond to your column  is reaUy a trip, especiaUy if you agree with  me person responding. A man caUed who said  he was trying to organize a local consumer  group to see if something could be done about  prices on the Peninsula. I'm sure most would  agree that is an exciting thought.  ^ I found out later that there is a local  consumer group already established but that  they are kind of quiet. They're not quiet, they  are asleep. Consumerism could catch on  around here like women's Ub caught on in  chauvanistic ol' Australia:".yf'r'"'"-" "'! '���  Joe kampman, A Gribsbiis resident, is  holding an organizational meeting of the  consumer group he is trying to establish a  week Thursday at his place. With a Utile  support and input from people who are  concerned about local prices and who have  sotae specialty knowledge that might be used  as resource, the group might turn up a lot of  good! (I don't beUeve demoUtion experts are  required yet).  Kampman said he believes many people  are inwardly hostile about the cost of Uving  here, especiaUy when it is compared to other  smaller communities which are just as, if not  more isolated than the Sunshine Coast. You  may not ba apathtic when it comes to many  issues, but you might as weU be unless you  support organizations that are trying to do  something about things that rub you the  wrong way.  uie ot coixuption  rougn jear��  Editor  The Times  Sir:-  I just finished watching and hearing of  heinous goings ori of graft, political  patronage, and downright waste in an extended period from Mackenzie King to the  present party in power under the present  jokers' leadership.  For the benefit of those who missed it on  Channel 81'U give some facts in particular.  The St. Lawrence Waterway in King's time  became so foul that the Federal Government  nationalized it at an enormous cost running  into the bilUons. In St. Laurent's time it was  sold to famuy and holding company for  $1,000,000.  Though this family have grown and were  growing very righ with the returns of their  investment, the federal government have,  since selling given over $200 million dollars in  grants to this holding company. A principal  owner in this consortium is Madam Borassa,  wife of Quebec's premier. Most companies  would be very, happy to net a very smaU  portion of what the St. Lawrence waterways  does.  vSo why must the people of Canada keep on  returning to power an outfit that throws  money away like this?  Then there were the destroyers, aU buUt to  the tune of $80 miUion a piece, four times the  contracted price.  The price fixing and bribing in the  dredging scandal is another. The second  highest bid got the contract and coincidence  that bid matched the.government figures  penny for penny. The lowest bidder wouldn't  accept a $50,000 bribe so he lost out. More of  our money wasted.  Following W-5 came B.C.'s liberal leader  with the astounding news that the elected  members know best and do things for/the  IBi���s needs safe water'  Editor, The Times:  Sir ��� The U.S. government has passed a  Safe Drinking Water Act which forbids the  addition of any chemicals to the water supply  except for the purpose of making it safe to  drink:  �� ���-������-���-���---'-' -������- ���������-������������ .-���-..,-..���..-.,  This means that chemicals such as sodium  floride can no longer be added to the ^ater  supply for the aUeged purpose of redueffia  dental decay but reaUy for the purpose of  disposing of poisonous substance and at a  profit.

It isn't hard to figure out when a ferry has  arrived at Langdale because if you are  anywhere near the road you would beUeve  that you were witnessing a race at Westwood.  Our dog was hit on Sunday by a tourist on  his way to the ferry. I quess if you are pulling  a boat and passing everything in sight you  can't concentrate on what is on the road  ahead of you. Lucidly our dog was not hurt as  the driver never stopped to see what damage  he had done. He just kept on speeding along  Reed Road.  Yesterday whUe I was picking up our mad  I was sprayed by gravel by someone passing  to go to the ferry. The car was so close that I  could have reached out arid touched the  fender.  I know that the RCMP are very busy up  here and that they try their best, but  something has to be done before a child is hit  and kUled by a speeding driver. If they show  such Utile regard for an animal that they hit,  what would be theirjeaction I wonder if they  hit and killed a child?  Why can't speed bumps be instaUed along  Reed road and Henry road? I feel that this  wouldsettie the problem very quickly.  , Not too many of these drivers would have  to hit them doing their usual 60 to 70 mph  before they would slow down. Also if more  speed zone signs could be posted. There is one  on Henry road north bound and the next is not  until Park road east bound.  Mrs. Vern Nyler     I-' '  R.R.

Stu, with tho nid of his dogiTrlxio who sots  up nn uproar whenever she sees her master's  rod bowing to tho pull of a fish, landed n thirty  two pound salmon.  Yours truly was, as usual, an awed nnd  admiring spectator,   .,  It was nn impressive display but paled In  .comparison to �� previous feat of Stu's,���   Somo tlmo previous to our Jaunt Stu, who  wharfs hla boat at Jim Cameron's on Frances  Peninsula decided to go fishing,  Ho got bait from Jim nnd on his wny to  Lcea Bay started moving slowly through the  .,���,clinnncl.���w, ..,,,..-. -..���..  Ho was passing by what I understand Is  known to locals an Frost Islond when ho  noticed a man stepping off a wharf Into a  dinghy, While doing so ho last his balance and'  fell Into Uio water. Stu wheeled around to tho  wharf, jumped out and grabbed the man's  arms and attempted to pull him out of the.  water.  The man struggling in the water, 71 year  old Lyall Barr, had a bad arm and this  hampered the rescue effort.  Stu, who Is 68 himself eventually got the  man to put his foot on to the rope which still  tethered the dinghy and with this added  leverage finally managed to wriggle him out  of the water and onto tho wharf.  Mr. Barr, I'm happy to say, suffered no ill  effects from his adventure. As for you, Stu,  well dono. You are truly a great fisherman.  LADD3S ARE WINNERS  So what's now bout that?

SECHELT ��� Vancouver's Contemporary  Jazz Dance Theatre wiU perform here July  22.  The group wUl perform at the Sechelt  Elementary Activity Room, sponsored by the1  Sunshine Coast Arts Couridl.  The Contemporary-Jazz Dance Theatre  was founded in 1973 by Jamie Zagoudakis and  received a Local Intiatives Project Grant,  during the first winter season. This enabled  the Company to perform in different areas of  the community culminating in several weU  received concerts at the Vancouver East  Cultural Centre. During the fall of 1974, Gisa  Cole joined Zagoudakis as a director of the  company and their combined efforts have  produced a very strong and versatUe dance  company.  The conpany is composed of ten dancers,  aU of whom have strong dance, mime and  theatre backgrounds. Company members  have contributed works to the company  repertoire which already consists of works  choreographed by the directors Jamie  Zagoudakis and Gisa Cole and guest  choreographer Karen Rimmer, Dancer in  Residence at Simon Fraser University. The  repertoire is a very exciting mixture of pure  dance, mime and dramatic theatre pieces.  At this time the Contemporary-Jazz Dance  Theatre is being sponsored by an Opportunities for Youth Grant which enables the  group to perform and teach workshops in  schools, community centres, penal institutions and theatres throughout the lower  mainland and Vancouver Island. The Company is here as part of, a B.C. summer tour.  Admission is $1 for students; $2 for adults.  A secondary school principal would llko  tho wording of tho school board's truancy  policy changed,.   ���  A.L. Thompson, principal of Pender  Harbour Secondary, does not believe parents  should have tho right to give a student permission to bo absent from school for; reasons  other than obvious ones like sickness and he  wants the wording of-tho School Board's  policy on attendance changed accordingly,  At last week's school board meeting,  trustees set August 21 for a policy review  meeting nnd asked superintendent John  Dcnly tp meet wlUi Thompson In tho meantime.

The series highUghts individual  artists and creative situations existing on the  Sunshine Coast.)  Three to six year old chUdren are creative  aU the time, whenever they feel the urge.  Although some of the chUdren at the Wilson  Creek Day Care Centre, which I have been  visiting, do not get involved in artistic activities most do it spontaneously.  It mostly happens when the chUd is alone  within him or herself. It is not the kind of  activity that a group of chUdren wiU throw  themselves into, but leave out a new set of  pens, or brushes and a new set of paint, and  they'U want to try it out. Placing old stuff in a  new place may be just as good. It won't work  when the materials are in a mess; but if it's  clear and easy, individual chUdren draft  over, and before you know it there's a group  of them painting.  Some children draw th$ same thing over  and over ��� the same face or some TV super-,  hero, or something they learned to copy at  kindergarten (a princess is typical). Other's  pictures always are different. They seem  more to foUow their feelings and moods;  somehow it flows naturaUy.  The Day Care workers flatter originaUty  when' it reflects the chUd, is totaUy new, or  suggests feelings or because it is very expressive. They'U flatter different things for  different kids ���bold use of colour,  uninhibited flow, when the treat what they  are doing seriously. Whether it comes out as a  scribble or not isn't important. Sometimes it  looks like a scribble to an adult; but the child  has sat down and worked on it intently, so  positive feedback is weU deserved.  "We try to praise what the child wants to be  praised for, but that can lead to some strange  results. When they're trying to do a tree, and  it looks vaguely like a tree, we'U recognize it,  and flatter them. It's hard though when they  ask what you think it is or what it looks like ���  'No, it's not that, it's this!', and they're  shocked. Kids love drawing rocket ships;  people and faces are the most popular;  spiders and monster faces are fun,  "Once, at finger-painting time, they took  their shirts off, so as not to get them dirfy.  Several of them hive t;o t patailheir hands  anyway ~ and this time there were no  sleeves to stop it there; so they continued  painting themselves. They love to change  their appearance py drawing on themselves;  sometimes they do each other. They love  doing it, then running to the mirror to see  what they've done, laughing. And they like to  display it too ��� they always want to keep it  on to show to their parents, and then to go to  "parents are often wiUlng, indeed somo of  them seem to think it as a right, to give  permission for their sons ond daughters to bo  absent from school for any reason whether lt  bo a good one from my point of view or not,  "The result has been that tho educational  progress of somo students have been  seriously affected and the authority of tho  school seriously weakened as students know  that as long as their parents glvo them permission to bo absent, tho school is powerless  to do anything'about It," Thompson said.  "I bollovo that a parent should ho wish his  child to bo absent for reasons othor than  honlth should' contact the principal prior to  the desired nbsenco to determine whether the  absence will bo of detriment to the student's  ���cducattonnl,progrcs's,!J!Kho.added..asaav.,^a.nMn.,  Earlier this yoar nbout 100 Pender Harbour Secondary students staged a walk-out  ovor Thompson's, enforcement of another  aspect of tho attendance policy.

I asked how the parents felt about this.  "There's a range of reactions, from 'wonderful', to 'oh look at you, you've done it  again' ('kids wUl be kids'). One mother of a  shy daughter, when arriving to pick up her  clean child, asked 'why didn't you paint your  body; they look great!' Some are indifferent.  "Unfortunately, parents don't seem to  take an interest in their children's artwork.  At pickup; they might say'oh my, isn't that  nice. Where's your.lunch kit' Some parent's  walls are covered with their chUdren's artwork. Many have difficulty accepting the  scribbles that, kids do before beginning  representational drawings, Even it it's not  aesthetically pleasing, it's an. 'important  expression of what the cluld is going through.  There's something important to them about  putting their mark on paper; it's an exciting  discovery tp them.  "It's interesting what chUdren notice.  When we are soring things out, tiiey pick out  exquisite things. For example, in a pile of  calendars, they zeroed in on some Japanese  prints; and everyone got into them, asking  why Japanese things were so pretty. Or  Kathy's 400 year old beads of carved coral  and jade. They treated them with respect.  Somehow they knew it was different from  plastic. They recognize quaUty and seem to  have an aesthetic sense without being told,  boys and girls alike. Or wear something nice  and colourful, and they'U compliment you on  it.  "Music for them is a medium of communication, a language, a way to say "This is  me and how I am feeling right now!' Kids do  it naturally; they don't need suggestions from  you, just the freedom to be able to do it. Music  touches something very central to chUdren ���  sounds are heard in the womb, and research  shows that children of aU inteUigence levels  respond equaUy to music.  "Left to their own devices, they use  rhythm (not noise) before tunes. They wiU  use their voices as a rhythm instrument, with  nonsense syllables, try mirroring, their  vocalizing ��� 'Boop, boop, be, do', 'Boop,  boop, be, do', 'Beep, beep be, de', 'Beep, beep,  be, de' ��� they love it  "Little people are probably more into their  bodies than anyone else. When they don't  know they're dancing, they can be reaUy  supple. But if they try to 'dance' like an adult,  they become quite awkward. Some don't  reaUy walk from one place to another, but do  a hop, skip and a jump, a twirl, or a march,  - especiaUy when they're in a pleasant space,  feeling good. Children also understand a lot  from,other people's 'body-language'.  "Kids' creativity appears most in  dramatic play. It's not theatre, because it  isn't performed;! h^s done solely'for themselves. It occurs when the chUd becomes  someone else. "I'm the mommy', 'Pm the  fireman', or 'I'm the chUd walking through  the scary woods'. It involves the invention  and playing out of characters and situations,  extracting items from their own experience  and working with them in an effort to understand them. This is quite different from  putting on a 'show' for the benefit of adults in  order to get attention.  "Adults get involved in the chUd's creative  play. If you aUow the child to lead you he wUl  find a role for you and teach you to play on  his terms. The more you remember what it  was like when you were a child, the more you  can bring to it Try getting down on the floor  and getting into it. If you're into it, it's fun ������  everyone gets something out of it. But as  soon as you decide that you want to teach  something to the chUd, the whole magic  flitters away.  "Given the chance,,everything a chUd  does can be, creative ��� washing dishes, they  become entranced with the color of soap  bubbles; making cookies, they get into the  texture of the dough, and shape it. But this is  only possible if you allow them to do so. The  business of childhood Is play. When the  'product* of an experience is not imposed on  them as being essential the 'process" is what  leads to real expression."  * t  ,Hk  '?  i  f  J  fcf >  i   V  , .   "  *?

BY GUY SYMONDS  I'1 "i  s  'it,     (,)  \t\  f  If you are around the bulb growing country  in tho Bradner area at flowertlmo you will  probably bo rather shocked to see masses of  blooms 'wasted'. Tho flowers' heads will lie In  heaps at tho side of tho fields, and are a  pathetic sight for the ordinary citizen who  treasurers his spring garden.  After the cut flower trade Is satisfied,  howevcr,tho grower must think of his most  profitable market, tho demand for bulbs by,  the homo gardener and tho landscaping  expert, To get the best out of this ho must, of  course, produce a good article and to achieve  this ho must discourage prolific blooming. In  fact tho year boforo tho bulb goes on tho,  market, it is not allowed to corry a flower.'  The result, ns wo nil know, Is that nowly  purchased bulbs mako a flno showing thoir  first year.  Most of Waf^coK  foll6w a regular routine (to ensure that tho  lovoly spring show will 1x5 guaranteed each  succeeding year, So wo seo tho blooms  diminishing In slzo each year, tho stoma  getting shorter and an ever Increasing crop of  'blind' flowcrloss shoots.  Tho bigger part of Uio answer Is In a fow  words, lifting, storing and separating, Or In  ono word 'resting'. Don't let your daffodils  and narcissus stay In the ground longer thnn  tlirco yenrs or y^ur tulips moro than two  yonrs. Bettor that these are lifted ovory yearl  Pretty well everyone understands that  bulbs must bo left In tho ground after tho  blooms havo been taken and tlwt tho green  leaves must bo loft on to feed and fatten tho  bttlb for the rcs|,)t the growing season Jt Is on��  this Uiat tlio bulb depends for next yenr's  blooming. When the dormancy period seta In,  however, tho green loaves wither nnd die,  Their ]olj> lk dono and tho bulbs If It Is their  tilrn, should ho lifted, Tho Important thing Is  Iho drylhgrNor Involved procciliiro thoitgh -  just put them in n well vcntllntcd dry  place ������ but not In tho sunshlno, Spread out In  data, When thoy nro well dried, break up tho  clumps, sort thorn out according to slzo, and,  of course, variety, Ix.t thorn spend tho rest of  the dormant period resting under tho best  circumstances to give them a healthy sleep. A  good way Is to put them In paper bags, appropriately Identified, with some bulb dust or  sulphur as a fungicide. Little builbs that are  obviously not out of tho nursery yet can be set  ���out at planting tlmo In a separate location to  achieve their adulthood, but should not he  allowed to carry any flowers until thoy are a  satisfying slzo.  Snowdrops and crocuses don't seem to  mind bolng left In tho ground and will con-  Unue to thrive and spread In a most  satisfactory manner. Daffodils nnd narcissus  aro not too difficult nbout It but tulips should  always get special cqro, Another good thing  about lifting these too Is tliat It saves them  from tho fate of providing Hold mice with  nourishing and succulent winter food,  .���,_Npw,.lfl,tho.tlmo..oLUii0..yonr.to���mnko surp,  that you will bo proud of your sprjng garden  next year.

The 'help' flag is up at Derby Headquarters  for the annual World Salmon Championships.  Hundreds of visiting fishermen want to  arrange charter boats. So, officials of the  event have appointed the 'charter boat pool'  to handle the problem again.  Local boat owners are welcome to register  with the 'pool' who will match up visitors with  boat owners. Skippered boats of the 17 foot to  38 foot size are preferred.  It all adds up to getting paid to fish in the  world's biggest fishing tournament, where,  for the eighth time, someone will go home  happy with the $25,000 for the largest" salmon  in the August 9 and 10 derby that attracts  thousands of nimrods from all over the globe.  To register your boat for charter service,  just call the 'Charter boat pool' at 688-0481 in  Vancouver,- or write them at No. 17 ��� 566  Cardero Street, Vancouver, V6G 2W7. There  is no cost to register.  Hundreds of local boat owners have taken  out visitors on 7 previous Big Derby"  weekends. Why not you? Your boat might be  the one that nets the big prize! Skippers are  allowed to fish too!  Boats are required in the Gibsons and  Penner Harbor area as well as the other  derby zones.  PageA-6  The Peninsula Times  Wednesday, July 16,1975  Sport fisherman beware. Catch limits are  being enforced by local fisheries officers and  the provincial courts.  In court last Thursday Judge Ian C.Walker  upheld the charge of fishing for more than  four salmon against David Gange'of Vancouver.  Gange was fishing in Agamemnon  Channel near Pender Harbour on May 17 the  court was told. He had caught three spring  salmon and one blueback but he still had a  line in the water when Ray Kraft, local  fisheries is officer, pulled up along side of his  boat.  Gange told the court the blueback, which  he had caught five minutes before the officers  arrived was the biggest salmon he had ever  caught and he was very excited. He said he  hadn't got around to getting his second or two  mooching lines out of the water.  Judge Walker said he was fishing for more  than his limit ahd fined him $25 and ordered  his fishing gear returned to him.  Federal Crown Prosecutor Ron Holmes  said before sentencing that fines in the past  had not been appropriate to control the  situation with sport fishermen.0  Walter Garrett and John Mitcell, both of  Vancouver, were also fined $25 apiece after  Kraft had found them with 12 salmon iri their  possession. The limit is four apiece.  By HARRY TURNER  Our Gibsons' Winter Club has had two  very favourable responses to our application  for a loan to complete the building. In order to  obtain that financing, one of the stipulations  is that we have the rest of the debenture  money which has been pledged biit is outstanding. If you have pledged to us and have  not yet paid, please bring your money in to  either the Royal Bank or the Bank of Montreal in Gibsons. Completion of the building  now depends upon that money. If you have  been thinking of joining us but have not yet  done so for one reason or another, your  joining would now be of considerable help.  For those who feel there is nothing for the  kids in this building, I would like to emphasize  that curling only takes place six months of the  year. During that time the kids will be offered  the facility to curl in their school PE  programs for free. Ice skating will take place  six weeks per season ��� two weeks when we  begin in October, two weeks at Christmas and  two weeks at the end of the season in April,  but again, to be fair, we must emphasize this  is not an ice skating facility. The rest of the  year, the building can be used for dances,  roller skating, 4H club fall fairs, arts and  crafts exhibits, trade fairs, boat and car  shows, bingos, Sea-Cavalcade events, Mardis  Gras type events, and other activities which  require a large haU with a concrete floor.  In addition to the above reasons for sup-  sporting this project, I believe if we all work  together for one thing at a time, we will  eventually have them all, but if we wrangle  over which one should have priority, we will  end up with nothing. The curling rink is  started,' let's finish it.  The work parties remain very successful  and the front half of the roof is just about  complete. Thank you, volunteer roofers. The  ladies have also done a lot of painting. Thank  you, ladies. A tremendous thank you also to  the contractors who donated equipment and  fill for the floor. The floor is now up to grade.  We are looking for an ice maker for the  1975-76 season. If anyone has done this work  before and looking to supplement their income, we would appreciate hearing from you.

Norma Gaines was the first division winner  and Eileen Evans took the second division  H -  If a hundred Canadians were asked how they  would describe the future of the pulp and paper  industry, the chances are most would say, "very  good." After all, doesn't Canada have large,  unused forests? Isn't world demand for pulp and  paper increasing? Can't Canada meet this  demand, as well as its own domestic needs?  The answer to all of those questions Is: yes.  If.  If we can keep Canada's pulp and paper  products cost-competitiye with American,- ���~ * *  Scandinavian, even Brazilian products, That's not  an easy task. Because Canada has some  surprising difficulties to place alongside the  advantages of a great natural resource and a long  tradition In pulp and paper manufacture.   '  Wood Costs. For example, the cost of wood  delivered to pulp and paper mills Is often higher In  Canada than In the United States, Canadian  winters make a difference, asdoes tho enormous  cost to tho companies of building and maintaining  vast networks of roads in remote forest areas. In  the U.S. south, whore 64 per cent of that country's  pulpwood Is harvested, forost operations are  conducted over smaller areas closer to the mills,  truck transportation of wood,is almost entirely on  public roads, and rail rates are much lower than  in Canada.  Equipment Costs;In Canada, the cost of   ,  building, operating and maintaining pulp and  paper mills is measurably higher than In the U.S.  Again, this is partially due to our climate. But, in  addition, machinery and equipment is considerably  more expensive In Canada.  Transportation Costs, This is a complex ,  ���subject, with wide regional -'disparities;; '   However, the transportation cost which must be  covered in the price of every ton of pulp and paper  shipped to'the United States Is often higher for  Canadian than for U.S. manufacturers,  Taxation. Taxes are a fact of life, for all of us. But  here again, a 1973 study conducted by Price  Waterhouse & Co, confirmed tha,t the burden of  taxation Is higher for Canadian pulp and paper  companies than for our chief competitors, In the  United States, Not only does this tend to make   ,  Canadian products less competitive, but It lessens  the amount of capital avallablo for growth and  expansion.  Labour Costs, This problem was discussed In  two earlier messages, But It's worth repeating. The  average hourly wage in Canadian pulp and paper  mills Is over 15 per cent higher than In the U.S. and  the gap is still widening. If the trend in Canadian  contract settlements since 1969 continues, hourly  labour rates here would be some 30 per cent  -hlghefthanihoseln'the'U;S:byl977;Such'a^,,~^*  enormous disparity in labour costs would cripple  the Industry's ability to compete. If ah Industry  cannot compete, it loses sales both at home and  abroad to foreign competitors, And people lose  jobs. That's also a fact of life.  Now. you know. Canadians have been reliable  suppliers of pulp and paper for many years. We   ���  have a world-wide reputation for quality and  dependability, backed by a great natural resource  and an enviable combination of traditional skill  and modern technology, We have a pulp and  paper Industry with great potential, but only If It Is  cost-competitive with other world producers.

THE SCHOOL BOARD has decided to  apply to the Department of Education  for the purchase of all of lot 13 and half of  lot 12 instead of only lot 12, as was  originally planned. The extra land will  provide the new Sechelt Junior Secon-  ���dary School with a sound buffer zon-e.  between it and the proposed highway  that will pass through the north end of lot  12.  SECHELT��� Sechelt school board and the  department of highways have reached  agreement over Lot 12.  That information was disclosed at a  meeting here July 7 between the school board  and the regional board over the choice of Lot  12 as the site for the new junior secondary in  the Sechelt area.  The school board and the highways  department both had an interest in Lot 12..  The board revealed that the department of  highways reduced their demand on Lot 12  from three and a half acres to one and a half  acres and the department of education has  allowed the board to look at purchasing more  of adjacent Lot 13 for a buffer zone between  the school and the proposed highway.  A spokesman for the regional board said  the board called the July 7 meeting to discuss  any impact the board's choice may have on  the planning for the Sechelt area. Planning is  a regional board function.  The meeting opened withe regional  chairman Frank West stating the board's  policy toward the school board and their  choice of sites.  "The regional board is not in any position  to assume the jurisdiction of the school  board," West said, "the didsion on the site is  ultimately a school board decision and the,  l'a  DEPARTMENT OP  PUBLIC WORKS, CANADA  FOR LEASE ORSALE  POWELL RIVER, B.C.

If we feel that the choice of any  may cause problems, we will bring that to  your attention and on that basis, you are most  welcome to discuss anything with us; but the  final decision is yours and the regional board  will make no objection whatsoever."  The meeting consisted mainly of questions  and answers. The agreement between the  school board and the department of highways  came out in a question from a board director,  Trustee Pat Murphy, chairman of ti��e  buildings and ground committee, said the  agreement between the board and highways  was worked out at a meeting July 4,  "The department of highways has moved  over as far as it can," Murphy said, "They  want only a one and a half acre corner of the  lot. The department of education has allowed  us to purchase more of Lot 13 for a buffer zone  between the school site and the proposed  highway. This will allow the playing fields  and a treed area to be between the school and  the highway. The school will be well away  from the highway.  School board secretary Roy Mills said an  architect would attend the next school board  meeting to discuss the school. "The department of education has given us a larger than  standard school, site," he said, "quite  significantly larger."  He added, "The normal acreage for such a  school is nine to 11 acres. This one may be as  big as 17 or 18 and at least 15."  Asked about the close proximity of the  elementary school, Murphy said, "We have  found that won't be a problem. The location is  right for a junior secondary and possibly for a  senior secondary later."  School board chairman Peter Prescesky  explained, "The board's policy is to locate the  secondary schools In the larger population  areas ��� Gibsons, Pender Harbour and now  Sechelt, and to put the elementary schools  in the neighborhoods like West Sechelt or  Davis Bay."  He noted a new four roomejementary was  planned for the North Gibsons area.  Asked why the board did not plan the  junior secondary for the middle of the  population area around Sechelt (Davis Bay or  Selma Park), Murphy replied, "In the near  future we feel the population will balance  out."

As a result of request for a school from  residents of Clowhom Falls, the school board  is looking into Section 20 of the Public School  Act Regulations which provides Department  of Education funding for a supervisor of  correspondence.  Clowhom Falls on Salmon Inlet has seven  school age children and has requested a  school be established in the area. Area  spokesperson Michelle Bruce said the  supervisor of the Weldwood camp had indicated 20 new trailers will move into'this  camp next year.  The Department of Education says there  must be 10 students before a school can be  started.  John Denley, superintendent, said the  board must move to give the area all the help  it can while Section 20 is explored! ''  When there are more than four students'  but less than 10 a person who is not  necessarily a teacher can be appointed as  supervisor of correspondence, said Roy Mills,  board secretary-treasurer.  the supervisor would receive $50 per  student per month.  Denley indicated finding a supervisor or  teacher would be difficult because of the  transportation problem. Weldwood has said a  teacher could be transported to and from  Sechelt daily on the company boat.

A busy hostess last week was Mrs. Eva  Lyons whose guests were Eleanor Flack from  Belfast, Northern Ireland; her son Richard  Laird from Vancouver and two of her  grandchildren and Frank and Linda Russell  who flew from Montreal to spend their  vacation with her.  In 22 days, Mr. and Mrs. Don MacDonald -  have taken a good look at Alaska from land  and sea. They travelled by Evergreen bus  through B.C., the Yukon and Alaska and  returned by the Princess Patricia from  Skagway. Their route took them by Williams  Lake, Prince George and Fort St. John. Here,  their bus was held up by a parade which had  resultedin most of the streets being closed. It  was the annual 'blffy parade,' which commemorates the installation of sewers a few  years go when all the inhabitants brought out  their outdoor privies and celebrated with one  big bonfire. There were some interesting  architectural entries in this year's parade,  including one made of logs, one in Spanish  style and even a two storey model. Each  entry was manned (or should be say per-  sonned?) by five inhabitants, two pushing,  two pulling and one sitting. It was a hilarious  affair, particularly when the wheels of one  entry fell off.  They continued their lourcy by the Alaska ,  Highway,'crossing Into the Yukon for a stop  at Watson Lake.  At Whitehorse, they saw the midnight sun  from the spot where Robert Service received  inspiration for some of his famous poems.  Through magnificent scenery, they headed  north on the Mayo Highway by the Pelly and  Stewart rivers which havo, produced vast  fortunes In gold, and arrived In Dawson City  for a two-night stay at the Flora Dora Hotel.  They wcro entertained by tho Gaslight Follies  and visited tho cabins of Robert Service and  Jack London.  Crossing tho Yukon River, they proceeded  by Taylor Highway along a mountain top Into  Alaska with n stop nt Tok Junction. By Glen  , Highway-which runs, pnrallol-to-tlio*picturesque WrangoU Mountains, thoy renched  Glcnmlcn; then proceeded by the Richardson  Highway and Copper Rlvor Valley to Vnldoz,  Uio terminus of tho now Alaska pipeline. Tills  town, buzzing with construction workers,  thoy found to bo tho most expensive place  anywhere on their trip. A hotel room cost $42  n night nnd a breakfast of two eggs cost ft  with 65 cents for coffee and another $1.25 for  Uio toast,  Back tracking to Glenallcn, Uiey travelled  by Uio Mntonuska Volley and Palmer, a rich  agricultural area, to Anchorage, where thoy  arrived on tho longest day of tho year. Anchorage, which has been entirely rebuilt since  tho earthquake, thoy found to bo tho clonncst  nnd mort modern city of Alaska.

They returned to the Yukon  by the Richardson and Alaska highways and  by Burwash Landing, Haines Junction back  to Whitehorse.  The next part of their tour was one of its  highlights. From Whitehorse, they travelled  by Uie White Pass and Yukon RaUway to  Skagway over the difficult and treacherous  route which claimed so many lives during the  gold rush. Arriving at Skagway, they boarded  the Princess Patricia for a four day cruise in  the inland passage to Vancouver.  They stopped at Juneau on a Sunday when  everything was closed except the liquor  stores and bars. There were some interesting  old saloons with swinging doors, sawdust on  the floor, old posters and entertainment of a  bygone age. Along a back street where almost  every other store was a bar, they caught a  glimpse of Alaska's serious alcohol problem.  Here an attempt wds made to clean up  just before the arrival of each batch of  totirlsts. Drunks were carried ,off the street  and a garbage truck made the rounds picking  up ttie huge piles of empty bottles.  When the Princess Pat called in at Prince  Rupert, the West Vancouver school band was  there on the wharf playing to welcome them.  The boys and girls were entertained to a meal  on board and given a tour of the ship. The  band is on a yacaUon tour which includes  Sitka, Queen Charlotte City and Skagway.

IiTthe past the bus line operated the run  daily for July and August and every Friday  for. the rest of the year.  SMT has moved the departure of the 2:45  p.m. bus ahead to 12:30 p.m. which coincides  with the bus from Powell River that also  departs Sechelt at 12:30 p.m. for Vancouver.  The new 12:30 p.m. run will travel the Lower  Road to Gibsons as did the 2:45 p.m. run.  The next bus which departs Sechelt for  Vancouver is at 7:30 p.m.  . A letter from the chamber to the Motor  Carriers Commission, SMT Coachlines and  MLA Don Lockstead said "this extra bus does  riot assist in any way those who require it,  arid iri fact,leaves the Sechelt Peninsula."with  no afternoon bus."  " The letter, signed by Frode Jorgensen,  chamber president, goes on to say "ferry  delays and long waits occur during the  summer; whereas before, if a traveller used  the 2:45 p.m. departure time, he could  feasibly be in Vancouver by 7 p.m. Now that  there is only a 7:30 p.m. bus, arriving Vancouver near to midnight. The alternative of  leaving at 12:30 p.m. makes one's day very  short,"  "In Mr. Turner's budget speech, he indicated that with the increase of gas prices,,  individuals would be forced to use public  ,. transport?". We are being given poorer  service while at the same time we are bing  forced to pay higher gas prices for the  privilege of using private vehicles. It would  seem apparent that instead of deleting a run,  that additional runs should be effected," the  letter says.  .^. JBill Hamilton, SMT, general manager in  Vancouver, said last week., the run has not  been cut off but rather it has been moved  'ahead by two hours.  Hamilton said the change in schedule  solved three of SMT's problems nicely.  "'First there were few people patronizing  the 2:45 p.m. bus. It seemed that because it  only ran daily in the summer, people did not  get in the habit of using it.  '"Second, we usually had to put a second*  section on the 12:30 p.m.'run any way because  of the extra demand from, Camp Byng and the  Girl Guide Camp.  "And third, parcel express ^here in Vancouver moved one half mile down Carroll  Street which meant the 2:45 p.m. bus could  not be turned around in time for a 6:15 p.m.  return departure for Powell River. We had tp  delay people for that departure."  Hamilton said most of the objection to the  proposed adjustment in schedules came from  the Roberts Creek area. "People seemed to  think the service along the Lower Road was  being cancelled altogether and this is certainly not the case."  "My own personal feelings is that anyone  on the Lower Road will not be inconvenienced," said Hamilton.  Peninsula Centre's delegate to the federal  NDP convention will be addressing a meeting  of the party June 20.  A spokesman for the Peninsula Centre  NDP Club said the meeting to hear Pauline  Liste's report on the proceedings would be  held in the Welcome, Beach Community Hall,  four miles west of Highway 101 ori' Redrooffs  Road.  The meeting will be* at 2/p.m.  "Many other items of importance are to be  considered," the spokesman said.

For Judy and Tony Ellis 4 a.m. is the latest  they pan be out on Uie Sound searching the  water and shoreline for logs. Starting any  later means the local competition will have  made a serious dent in the number of  available logs ori any one morning.  For this writer, getting up at 3:30 a.m. to  climb aboard a boat and go out and look for  logs seemed a bit unreal. But then making it  to the office by 9 a.m. Is a struggle.  Tony and Judy are beachcombers or log  salvagers, and make their living pulling logs  off the beaches and out of the waters of Howe  Sound, The logs they seek are ones that havo  escaped from log booms being towed or from  tho booming grounds whero tho logs aro  sorted for the various mills on tho coast.  Tony liad tied the Sea Urchin up at tho  government wharf In Gambler Harbour tho  night before, There wasn't much point In  buoying It outside tho harlwur since we'd bo  , gone the next morning long before B.C.  Ferries' Dogwood Princess would need tho tie  up space nt 8 n.m.  At 3:30 n.m. It was still pitch dark and tho  last flashes of lightning from tho previous  night's storm wcro dancing off the mountains  ! to the north. The wind was calm and a slight  drizzle was still falling. SouthonaSt from tho  harhour tho Sound waters appeared calm,  You could see from tho front window of their  small house on a hill overlooking tho harbour  that the tldu wns high. Tho Sen Urchin wns  floating close to level with the main part of  the wharf.  Tony left the house, first and told us to get a  move on. He spooked a deer feeding in the tall  grass in front of the house. It was hard to tell  who was more surprised.  As Judy and 1 staggered out of the house  we could hear Tony had the Sea Urchin idling  and by the time we reached the wharf he had  his Inflatable rubber raft with a 20 hp motor  secured to the stern. He cast off the moment  we were aboard. We had all heard the drone"  and occasional crash- of a jet boat bouncing  off the waves as it skirted the coast of the  Island. The jet boat belonged to another local  beachcomber and Tony knew lt was getting  past time to be out there No two beachcombers have the same system for hunting  logs.  , Judy took the wheel and headed west  around the southern point of the Island. Tony  already had rain gear on and was checking  tho walkie-talkie.  However, as the light was beginning to  appear over the Lions tho wind wns coming  up and chop on Uio water was getting worse.  It.was. still raining. Tony didn't know if ho'd  be able to see anything from the Inflatable but  ho would glvo lt a try.  Judy slowed the Sea Urchin nnd Tony  jumped Into the inflatable and cast off. They  had done this routine often. Once he was  clear, Judy angled off to the north west  towards Port Mellon and Tony would skim  along the beach looking for floating logs. If he  found anything worthwhile he would radio  Judy and she would come in and pick up the  log he would have dogged and stamped.  But the chop was getting worse and by the  time the oil stove had heated the gaily, Tony's  voice crackled over the radio telling Judy to  turn around and head back. It was too rough  and he couldn't see anything let alone a low  floating log hiding in a trough. She turned the  rolling Sea Urchin around and he appeared  out of the shadows of the black coastline long  ���Seo Page B-4  The Village Council of Gibsons wish to bring to the attention of all users  of the Municipal water utility the following noted regulations and restrictions.

Oh, how we insult the One  who made us and gave His Son to die in our  place that we might live forever.  Why wait for a moment of crisis to start  praying? I suggest you begin now to seriously  consider God who is there and who is not  silent. At this time in our province we are  faced with the possibility of many, strikes in  the near future. Employers and employees  cannot resolve their differences. What a  shame, but too proud, too ungodly, to call on  the Maker of heaven and earth for help and  guidance.  "If you have hot prayed recently thiere is  one prayer suggested in the Bible that you  should begin with: "God be merciful to me a  sinner".  By ROBERT FOXALL  One of your reporter's great regrets must  be, that because of prior committments he  was unable to attend the open-air dance held  atTiOMci^  Arranged by Mr. and Mrs. Gordon Dtiwar  in aid-of the Branch 69 Senior Citizens  Building Fund the event was an outstanding  success. A beautiful warm evening saw 500  people dancing tp the music of three different  groups. I do not know how long.the party  lasted but understand that its high quality  was evident by the desire of everyone to  "Dance the Whole Night Thru'." And here I  must protect myself with an apology. There is  a terrific list of people whose efforts and  contributions made the evening such a great  boost towards our attaining our objective.  The exact sum realized is not yet  available but it was so much greater than  anyone had anticipated that I hate to think of  missing the name of anyone, hence my sincere apology in advance.  First of all, of course, are the Dewars who  were the guiding lights for the event but who  insist that a great deal of credit must go to  Tom and Evelyn McKinnon who assisted in  many ways as did Iris Miller. The musical  groups who alternated were 'The Spectrums'  a popular group of younger players, Al Aubin  & Russ Clark on guitars and our own Senior  Swingers.  Joe Keays wis the chefv in charge of  clambake, oyster fry and hamburgers while  Wally and ;Grace French took!qare ?0f .the  dispensary; Agnes Mc^ren^must have  brought some of the 'Luck of toe frish' with  heron her return trip to the 'Ould Sod' for not  only did she win a sprinkler donated by Irly  Bird Store but also won a hassock donated by  Al Aubin. Rugs donated by Dave Fiske were  won by Alan B. Sorry Alan, but that's all the  name my legman was able tp give me. The  sewing basket was won by Mrs. McKinnon  and the radio donate by Joe Benner was won  by Alan Tremblay. I am asked by president  Emery to thank those who helped with  hauling the piano and other goods. Thanks  also to the Superette for their donation of 500  plastic cups.  The Lion's Club picnic will be held at the,  Big Maples at noon, Sunday, Augusts. Those  who do not have, transportation should be at  the bus, depot by 11:45 a.m. whence the Lions  members will provide transportation.  , Dave Hayward advised that he still has a  few seats available for the bus trip to the  Penticton Peach Festival Aug. 1 to 3, Please  telephone Dave at 885-9755 for information  and prices.  .fageB^  The Peninsula Times  Wednesday, July 16,1975  WILSON    CREEK���    The    provincial  government has announced a capital costs  grant of $65,346 for the proposed group home ~  at Wilson Greek /  The announcement came from Victoria  soon after word came from the department of  human resources that the project had been  approved.  MLA Don Lockstead said the department  was prepared to approve operating costs of  $100,000 annually. Final details on the  proposal are to be worked out, the MLA said.  He said the minister would require, in  advance of commencing operations, a signed  statement to the effect that the Wilson Creek  Community Association agrees to direct and  assume responsibility for the program including the "role of employer to the staff and  administrations of payroll and benefits.  Lockstead said he was working with  members of the associations in obtaining  property from the provincial government for  the home.  iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiitiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiHiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiimim  Recycle this fUewspaperl  ������������������������iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiijiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiuiiHniniiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii  Try todEcimg at things fmm  a ��� a d  They say you never really know the area  you live in until you've seen it from the air.

P ���  ��� Beachcombers  ���From Page B-l  after the. sound of the outboard could be  heard.  Once in the galley, Tony indicated it might  be worthwhile to try the other side of the  .island where it would be (aimer. A few  moments later he said sleep would be a surer  thing than that. The guy in the jet boat would  have taken anything that was worthwhile.  he certainly didn't need to apologize to me  about heading in. Thoughts of a couple more  hours sleep were marvelous.  Beachcombing is a fascinating but  peculiar-way of life for somebody who hasn't  grown up with it in their backyard. It's a  tough and dedicated lot that make a living out  of it and if most enjoy and thrive on the life as ...  much as Tony, it is a shame the number of log  salvagers on the west coast will decrease as  the forest industry changes its way of transporting and sorting logs.  These men and women who survive solely  by their willingness to work hard, and whose  mental and physical wits are taxed daily by  the ever-changing environmental conditions,  make their living from the timber lost from  log booms either because of bad weather or  . because they float low in the water.  Some say log salvagers are thieves with a  licence. Anybody who spends a little time  with one knows that is foolish. A thief steals  with the thoughts of riches and leisure  without working too hard to get it. Such individuals are not exactly racing towards  B.C.'s coasts with tow lines in hand ready to  pull off the floating gold.  A few years ago the breakaway logs were  almost considered gold. But now says Tony  there are few logs escaping the log booms,  more beachcombers and a badly depressed  market for the logs. "Prices are 50 per cent  less now than what we were getting at this  time last year. Prices for pulp wood (used for  paper) are actually higher than prices for  saw logs and that is hard to believe."  It is not really the competition or wood  prices that will put beachcombers on the  endangersed species list if they are not  already there. More of the sorting of logs is  now carried out on land, says Tony. "Howe  Sound is probably the biggest log sorting  waters in the world. Logs are towed in here  from all over the West Coast for sorting  before they are towed to various mills, most  of which are in Vancouver. The grounds will  get smaller over the next couple of years."  Almost more lethal to the beachcomber  than land sorting is the bundling of log booms  with cable to keep them from breaking apart  in storms and to keep the odd log from  escaping in the calm. The bundling, says  Tony, is good for the industry but definitely  bad for us. "A lot of a beachcomber's work is  rounding up the logs from a boom spill and  the spills are going to become more infrequent."  It is like the technological age is catching  up with log salvagers but Tony and Judy are  realistic about their way of life and the  possibilities for it in the future, One might say  they are prepared.  Tony and Judy have been fulltime log  salvagers and residents of Gambier Island  for only one year. Tony left the teaching  profession because the amount of evening  work after a full day of classes. Before his  four year stint as a lughschool teacher he took  his degree at UBC and his teaching certificate  at SFU. In those two years he also took the  time to travel around the world. He married  Judy two years ago.  The 30 foot Sea Urchin has been their  biggest expenditure in their year of beachcombing. Tony had it designed specifically  with the idea in mind of beachcombing "going  belly up in the not too distant future." It was  designed as a work boat but not to look like  one, says Tony. "For this business It is really  an economic disaster. It is like using a  Cadillac when a Volkswagen would do, but  because of the way lt looks it can be readily  converted to a charter fisher, pleasure boat  or whatever. It would not be hard to sell,'  especially if a gas engine replaced the diesel  so top speed could boincreased." Now the Sea  Urchin cruises handily at 12 knots with a 160  hp diesel. -,  Tho $50,000 prlco tag for a boat used to pull  large logs off the beach and pull upwards of  100 logs to market Included extra layers of  fiberglass and a aluminum plated stern and  bow and stern teeth that help keep logs from  sliding under the boat. The prlco also included n tow post and $5000 worth of radio  equipment.  Inside, thoScaUrchln looks pretty swank  with mahogany molding and trim, stovo,  shower, head, refrigerator, and enough room  to sleep six If tho double fold-down couch on  the flying bridge la Included.  Between I-angdnlo nnd Gnmblcr tho young  cnptnln of tho Dogwood Princess said the Sen  """"'Urchin was quite a Iwat. Ho wns right. Tony  and Judy just took lt around Vancouvor  Inland on tho only holiday thoy have taken  this year.  Before Tony and Judy took delivery of tho  Soa Urchin In February Tony worked tho  coast and benches with only tho rubber In*  flatnblo. Tho problem wns ho had to |iay $100  cuch time ho needed a tow to get hla log�� to  tho log buyonvGuK I-og Salvage.  Now with the bigger bont they nro able to  . i ipull tho larger logs off tho beaches at high  tldo, In tho evenings to supplement tho logs  found In tho morning, Tony flnda tho logn with  tho Inflatable nnd after ho tics a line to them  (dogging) Judy pulls thorn off tho bench with  Uio Sen Urchin. Watching tho stretchnblo poly  ropo whip tho hont buck when tho benched log  T (.oiiifl  tlio  Hrnt  tlmo  In  really  a a-���I  /  /"'  \  /    *  *t  \  V  --J  /  something. It is also tricky.  When the power is let off before another  run is made with the log there is a possibility  of the rope tangling in the prop. And saya  Tony, "we have one wet suit and it only fits  Judy." Judy rolls her eyes at the thought of  the last time she had to go down with a knife  and free the rope-bound prop.  Also the possibuily of a dog breaking loose  from a stubborn log is enough to make one  very careful. There are holes in the fiberlgas  and quarter inch steel on the back of the boat  which indicate catching a flying dog in the  head could be disasterous. Tony told of one  beachcomber who got a dog through his  shoulder just a few weeks after he started in  the business. That ended his work for six  months.  Unknown to many, there are numerous  rules and regulations log salvagers have to  abide by. Some of them are almost  ���discriminatory says Tony."We can't salvage  in certain places after dark and that is like  saying we are thieves. It is almost a guilty  until proven innocent system. It is legal to  salvage outside the magic line that runs up  between Gambier and Keats Islands in the  Sound but it is illegal to haul your logs back  across the line to get them home. But, the  forest industry is very powerful."  The Log Salvage Act however" lias not  discouraged many new starts.in the beachcombing business. The government has  issued about 2500 salvage licences since 1949  and Tony's is the 2176th. Until 1970 there were  only about 1700 licenses issued .and in the last  four years there has been almost 1000 more.  Not all of the licences are active, in fact,  says Tony, there are probably only 200 full  time log salvagers on the coast.  "Before the 'Beachcombers' TV series it  was a relatively unknown profession but now  a lot more people are giving It a try. A lot of  fulltimcrs don't even bother in the summer  with all the parttlmera going to work. Many  don't last long. Maybo I'll be one of them."  A beachcomber who pays $100 per year for  his licence and cannot employ more than one  person who must work in the vicinity of his  employer.  Logs aro only sold to ono company Gulf  Log Salvage who represent all of tho forest  Industry, Payment depends on log type, size  ond quality,  Recently the forest industry notified log  salvagers that it, would pay ?100 for each  section of debris (60�� x (.0') and would also  pay $10 a mile to tow It. Tony says nt least |t is  an admission on the part of tho Indu-stry tliat  there Is a debris problem on tho benches and  In the w��tor but Uiey aro not paying enough to  mako It worthwhile,  Tony says, after cxpop.sos ho makes ns  much ns ho did teaching, Trying to find out  how, many logs you need to collect ty mako n  "day or week' worthwhile Is almost impossible.  Somo days, says Tony, 1 may get 75, tho next  dny thrco logs nnd clnssca nnd prices for  various types of logs vary so much I enn't say  tho number of logs I need for a good week,  Ono good log la worth ns much na flvo or six  thinner ones, ho snys.  Judy hns her reservations nbout tho whole  business. "With getting up bo early every  morning I have nev<jr thought about sleep so  much In my llfo. When we get homo In tho  morning othor people nro Just getting up nnd I  have n tendency to talk to them nnd not got  back to bod ns enrly na I should,"  "I llko It on tho Islnnd, wo used to summor  horo ns kids, Tony goto mad nt mo whon 1  want to go to tho bench on tho weekend nnd do  things wo used to do nn tourists."  VVhoii Tony flrat at<irto(U)eucli(:6ml)liig lio  JUDY ELLIS TAKES the helm of the  Sea Urchin to pull the logs off the beach  her husband Tony has dogged and  stamped. She is out on Howe Sound  morning and evening with Tony.  said he was uneasy unless he was out there.  "I kept thinking there were logs that I should  be getting. Now I take it a lot easier although  we still work hard. It's like any other  business, if you put in the hours you can be  successful."  It would be sad to see beachcombers go for  whatever the reason. They are characters  that no doubt would have inspired Henv  mingway with their individualistic way of life  that depends so much on machines, the water  and weather, and one's ability to be right,  most of the time.
