Wednesday, May 5,1976  This Issue 18 Pages ��� 15c  feter lease  MLA Don Lockstead said last week he will  continue to look into the circumstances  around which a water lease was granted to  Halfmoon Bay Estates Ltd. for a marina at  Porpoise Bay in Sechelt.  Lockstead brought the matter up in the  House last week and asked Environment  Minister Jim Nielson to check into the  matter.  Lockstead insinuated there could be a  conflict of interest because the principal in  Halfmoon Bay Estates, Len Van Egmond,  had been heavily involved in the Social Credit  campaign during the last election.  Lockstead said he thought the water lease  had been granted over objections expressed  by the province's Fish and V^ildlife Branch,  the Federal Fisheries and an environmental  report made by the Department of Lands.  He also said the marina had been granted  against his personal recommendations and  against public opinion that was expressed at a  hearing called one year ago to discuss  Sechelt's zoning by-law.  Sechelt council differed from public  opinion and allowed the marina to be built by  accommodating it in the zoning by-law.  The Lands Department, which issues the  water leases, considered Sechelt council to be  the official local agency to add the 'social  impact' side to the decision making process.  According to Lockstead, Hielson reported  back to the House Thursday, saying he could  find no conflict of interest.  Lockstead said he expected Nielson's  answer but that he wanted to bring the matter  out in the open.  He said he is continuing to look at the  ��� See Page A-3  School  board  decided not to cut  its  proposed 1976 budget, and in doing so it gives ,  Peninsula taxpayers a 6.2 mill increase over  1975.  In a press release issued after a special  budget meeting April 26 the board said it  decided to maintain its 1976 budget and accordingly the mill rate for education purposes  will be 40.2 mills. The mill rate last year for  education was 34.8 mills.  The release said that this year's budget,  although requiring an 18 per cent tax boost,  still leaves this district some five and one-half  mills below the provincial average. The  average provincial tax rate is 46.5 mills.  The release said "in the Board's considered opinion the budget contains only  necessary programs, necessary either to  maintain existing standards, or, where these  standards are felt to need improving, to bring  them up to a satisfactory level.  "Perhaps the most expensive of these  upgrading tasks is that at Elphinstone, which  should not be a continuing cost in future  budgets. Some of the older school buildings,  are also due to get a renovation because, over  the past few years the pressure of  emergencies have interfered with the level of  routine maintenance. This, too, should taper  off in the future.  "The Board will continue with its plans to  A volunteer fire department in the Halfmoon Bay area is a step closer to reality.  On request of the Welcome Beach  Ratepayers' Association, the regional board  Thursday authorized the establishment of a  specified area in Electoral Area B for the  purpose of fire protection-  . Once a by-law.is formulated establishing  the specified area and the regional board has  given it third reading , it will be sent to Victoria for approval. When Victoria approves  the by-law a referendum will be held in the  specified area to see if residents will allow the  regional board to tax them for the amount  needed to establish the fire department.  A petition from the ratepayers'  association requesting the establishment of  specified area was presented to the regional  board Wednesday at a ratepayers meeting at  Welcome Beach Hall.  A straw poll taken among the 20 residents  who attended the meeting showed overwhelming favor to the idea that the decision  on the fire department to go referendum.  Only two people voted against.  Brian Stelck who was a member of the  adhoc committee set up by the ratepayers  last Fall to study the feasibility of a fire  department in the area, said the area covered  by the volunteer department would be  Bay view to Wood Bay, including the  Redrooffs Road area and part of the Trout  Lake Road area.  He said that in the future, as the area  population expanded and the fire department  personnel and equipment expanded, the  boundaries of the district could be extended.  "Boundaries would be flexible," he said.  The referendum will decide the maximum  amount the regional board can borrow, or the  maximum amount taxpayers are willing to  pay, to establish the fire department.  It was indicated at the meeting that $75,000  would likely be the maximum amount  necessary to adequately equip and house the  fire fighting equipment. Based on the present  assessment rates, Stelck said he thought that  $75,000 could be raised by a tax rate Slightly  less than five mills.  John McNevin, regional board chairman,  said only resident property owners who are  on the voters list will take part in the  referendum. He said that approximately 55  per cent of the property owners who pay taxes  in the area are not full-time residents and  therefore not on the voters list.  Although no firm decisions have been  made as to the type of equipment the Halfmoon Bay volunteer fire department would  use, residents at the meeting looked  favourably on a mini-pumper system with a  series of outposts throughout the large,  spread-out district.  The mini-pumper is a four wheel drive one  ton vehicle designed for more difficult access  areas. New, this fire truck costs $26,000.  Stelck said that firm decisions on the best  equipment for the area would be decided by  qualified people once the voters have, given  the regional board the maximum budget for  capital costs!' /  ,  He also said that if a fire department i��v.  established, the fire chief could ask the  regional board to install more fire hydrants in  the area. At present the regional board is  installing some hydrants along the new  Redrooffs Road water system.  On the question of a reduction in fire insurance if a fire department is established,  Stelck said he could give no statement on how  much insurance rates would drop, other than  to say they would go down. He said variables  like the type of equipment and the number of  fire hydrants would be taken under consideration by insurance underwriters to  determine the reduction. -  McNevin said it was his experience that,  insurance rates would drop 50 per cent with  ��� See Page A-3  TRIAGE DOCTOR checks the patients  that arrive from the disaster scene and  directs them to the part of the hospital  than can best cope with their injuries.  The triage, or sorting doctor, which in  this case is Dr. Swan, is perhaps the  most important person at a hospital  during a multi-injury accident. St.  Mary's Hospital had no trouble coping  with 20 accident victims during last  week's disaster exercise.

In n letter to premier Bill Bennett the  association said .it wanted serious consideration given to the revising and amending  of the Highways Act.  It said amendments should Im; made to the  act to give Regional District the power to  approve or disapprove relocation and major  alterations to highways, and In particular, the  location of new highways. The association >  said this power would be the same ns that  enjoyed by municipalities.  The association said "wo feel this Is true  democratic right to be exercised by democratic people through their elected regional  Iward representatives."  When this letter was raised at Thursday's  regional board meeting, Jack Paterson first  thought the board should send a strong letter  supporting the assocatlons position.  But he changed his mind after board  chairman John McNevin said that If the  regional board was given the power to say yes  or no to highways, the province might saddle  the district with the road paving costs.  It w��h decided to kcih! a letter saying the  iMHird hoped it could liave continued good  communication with the Highways Department.  A draft plan of the Sechelt Vicinity Plan  should be ready sometime next week. It will  feature moderate growth and development.  The Sechelt Vicinity planning committee  met' April 27 and decided that sufficient  preliminary discussion had occurred to allow  the formulation of some general policy  directions so that regional district staff could  go to work on a draft plan.  Thursday the regional board directed  planner Adrian Stott to begin work on the  plan.  At the committee meeting general policies  concerning the plan were discussed. After  reviewing public reaction from a meeting  called to discuss the plan, It was agreed  moderate development and growth should lie  permitted In the area.  The committee discussed accommodation  of four types of community activity ��� Industry, residence, recreation and commerce.  The following is a summary of those  discussions, as detailed from the minutes  written by planner Stott.  INDUSTRY  Space should lie made'available for three  typos of industry, locations should bo  provided for: Industry requiring n waterfront  access; Industry requiring public exposure;  and Industry not requiring public exposure.

There had been a clear Insinuation of a  conflict of interest with certain board  members Over the board's intent to purchase  a property in Sechelt for n school site In the  article.  A legal tussle ensued between tho board  and McNevin because McNevin maintained  his remarks In the paper had been misconstrued by the reporter. But the board  maintained the Vancouver Sun said the  reporting was accurate and the reporter had  the notes to prove It.  in his letter to the school board McNevin,  who la now chairman of the regional board,  said "1 do not lielleve that I made the  statements attributed to me hut If that Is the  way the reporter construed my remarks then  I apologize for any embarrassment. which  may hnvo been caused to the school board."  The board accepted the apology and  dropped its legal persual of the matter.  Union Steamships Limited's serious  financial difficulties have spread to Bowen  Island, but according to a company  spokesman the Bowen problems will not  jeopardize Union's promise to re-finance  Interfacial Design Ltd. in Sechelt.  Bud Gairns, president of Interfacial and a  Union Steamship employee, said Sunday the  fact Woburn Holdings Ltd. had foreclosed on  220 acres of Union's Bowen Island property  would not effect his company receiving  money to finish 18 homes in Seaside Village  and remove outstanding mechanics liens.  Two weeks ago Union Steamships agreed  at a hearing called by B.C. superintendent of  insurance Tom Cantell to sell 3.5 acres on  Bowen Island to raise more tlian $100,000  needed to bolster the sagging Sechelt  development.  Would-be home owners in the Sechelt  subdivision have given Interfncial Design  until May 21 to moke good, building contracts  they hold witii the company and to remove  Hens from some properties. Some complainants were supposed to liave their homes  completed over eight months ago.  In other court actions, Union Steamships  has been given until Oct, 12 to meet  obligations on another Bowen mortgage held  by Glenmont Holding Ltd, and covering about  400 acres on Bowen.  According to a report carried in the  Vancouver Sun the principal plus interest  payout in the case alone will require the  company to como up with more than $1.8  million by Oct. 12.  Union lias filed an appeal against the  Woburn, ruling by the Supremo Court of  Canada. Woburn foreclosed for non-payment  of n $275,000 loan.  Gairns said that people waiting for homes  In Seaside Villages."had nothing to worry  about."  Although he had nothing to say about  Union's promise to sell 3.5 acres on Bowen to  bolster his company, he said Union and Interfacial havo got re-financing from a private  group.  He said he didn't know how much money  the re-financing would Involve or when It  would arrive.  lie considered the Vancouver Sun had  taken "cheap shots at Union".  As for building materials to build homes in  the Sechelt subdivision, Gatrna said he has  found three companies to supply him and  each would Im; delivering material soon.  He   still   maintained   that    Interfacial  Designs would not go bankrupt.  I  hire additional teachers for September. In  part these extra staff are necessitated by the  new schools of Sechelt Junior and Pratt Road  Area, and in partbynew programs such as the  Alternate Education approach. These new  school facilities also require maintenance,  cleaning, heating, lighting and office personnel.  "We do have a bigger operation, and the  Board is determinnd that it shall be a better  operation. To do that and to hold the mill rate  increase to about the same as the Provincial  Average increase, maintaining a mill rate  well below the Provincial Average, is felt to  be a realistic position to take, accordingly the  Board endorsed the budget as originally  adopted on February 12."  Board secretary-treasurer Roy Mills  explained the mill rate on the Peninsula was  well below the provincial average because of  the area's high assessment rate per student.  The provincial assessment average per  student is $18,800 and the average on the  Sunshine Coast is $34,900. This school district  is the seventh richest in the province when it  comes to assessments.  The high increase in local school taxes  came after the provincial government announced the province's basic school levy  would climb from 26.5 mills to 32.5 mills. It  ��� See Page A-3  The Sunshine Coast Regional District will  seek support from the Union of B.C.  Municipalities for a change in the Municipal  Act which would give regional boards the  power to levy and collect business license fees  outside villages and municipalities.  It was noted at Thursday's board meeting  that a motion to this effect would be presented  at the next UBCM meeting to be held soon.  The matter was raised by a copy of a letter  that had been sent -to--Municipal Affairs  minister Hugh Curtis by the Roberts Creek  Community Association.  The letter said the association had passed  a motion saying the granting of business fees  should be done by the regional district so that  business could be supervised and controlled  locally.  Alternate director for Area B, Brian Stelck  told the board the RCMP issue a $10 business  licence to stores outside the villages of  Gibsons and Sechelt. He said that in many  cases businesses don't know they need a  licence and consequently are not issued one  because they do not ask for it.  Jack Paterson, Area A director, said he  thought the regional board could certainly  use the business licence fees and he didn't see  any reason why the present fees should go  outside the area through the RCMP to the  province.  Board chairman John McNevin added that  a regional board business licence fee could  have the added bonus of helping the board to  keep a tighter control on the district's zoning  and land use. "It would'be an important  check against zoning."  Morgan Thompson, Sechelt's director and  a shop owner inside the village, figured  business licence fees were primarily  designed to protect store owners from ped  dlers and door to door salesmen.  Jim Metzler, Gibson's director, said he  thought the fee structure for business licences  should be uniform throughout the district.  "At the moment someone is paying $10  outside the village and Morgan here is paying  $100 inside the village. I hardly think that is  fair," he said.  Planner Adrian Stott told the board does  not have the power to levy business fees  under the Municipal Act.  McNevin said he "thought the concept  would receive support from other regional  districts if it was raised at the next UBCM  meeting.  usf ice counci  , Another Justice Council meeting will be  held this Thursday in Sechelt's senior  citizen's hall and the topic of discussion will  again be capital punishment. The public is  invited.  Justice council members are calling the  meeting to get the whole council's approval to  make a presentation on how this area feels  about capital punishment to four federal  cabinet ministers in Powell River June 18 to  20.  Tim Frizzel, a council member, said he  hoped the council, which voted in favour of  capital punishment two months ago, will  allow a majority retention and minority  abolition presentation to be made to the  cabinet ministers.  Frizzel said the presentation decided on by  the council will be the Sunshine Coast's input  into the capital punishment Issue.  .C^v  \\_v? t ja?     $*��___��� :~*sr\.'

I began "The Revenge of, Moriarity  thinking I had a firmly established dislike of  detective novels. But because the publisher  had so kindly sent along this copy, I decided  to give it a try.  About halfway through the book^I began  to appreciate the fact that this was not the  tweedy, stodgy Sherlock Holmes of my ���  childhood. Author Gardner" has a fine  narrative ability and gives close attention to  detail. He builds his characters with a deftness that leaves the reader with an almost  , photographic impression.  He writes a good crime novel, one that has  a perfectly clear plot and a tension in the  story-line from beginning to end. A degree of  this tension is retained not only within the  main plot but also in side elements which  reveal the characters as human entities and  not as mere pawns serving the theme.  Complementary to its late nineteenth century  setting, fine descriptive detailing is present  but it does not hinder the clarity of the story.  The Holmesian antipode in the Victorian  age is Moriarty. The latter has reappeared to  haunt the doddering, cocaine addicted sleuth  who has long since forgotten his vanquished  arch-enemy. The book's Moriarty is, in fact,  the brother of the original. Using ingenious  disguises, he plots to establish himself the  king of a veritable Common Market of Crime  in Europe.  In order to carry out his diabolical plan, he  must first enlist the membership of the  syndicate heads of four major continental  countries. He deduces intricate methods to  sway their personal weaknesses to his  dastardly advantage. Only one unfortunate  underworld boss resists him, causing a rather  loud and messy explosion in an otherwise  quiet London street.  This new old-style detective caper has all  the spice of the naughty can-can days to make.  it quite enjoyable for modern readers.  Moriarty steals the show in the book. He  narrowly escapes Sherlock but we can surmise that Gardner will, relate other episodes  of encounters between the infamous  Professor Moriarty and the inimitable Inspector Holmes.  'Making a Success of Your Food Garden'  by Raymond Browne, published by  Doubleday, cl976, illus., index. $11.50. 'The  How to Collect Anything Book' by Sylvia  O'Neill Dorn, published by Doubleday, C1976.  $8.95.  Two books ��� one on an outdoor topic, the  other, on an indoor activity. While it is true  there may have been other books on gardening and collections, it is a treat to find  ones which handle their subject in a serious  manner.  Too many cute little paperbacks-are being  bounced off printing machines these days,  ones full of jazzy cartoons and quips that are  mere passing fancies on the reader's shelf.  Sylvia Dom and Raymond Browne are experts in their fields and seem sincere in  passing on some of the secrets of their trades.  Mr. Browne is an active member of the  Bedford Farmers Club (who knows more  about the soil than a farmer) and Sylvia  O'Neill Dorn is editor of a well known  magazine for collectors, feature writer for  McCall's in antiques and is herself, a dealer  and buyer of antiques for department stores.  'Making a Success of Your Food Garden'  is different than the usual garden book. The  how-to-do-it diagrams are photographs. But  says Browne, " 'How to' is not enough for  today's gardener and not as enlightening as  the 'whys' of vegetable culture."  He does not treat his subject lightly. The  book begins with planning and preparation of  the plot. Location, PH, mulching, fertilizer  and seed selection are dealt with thoroughly  first. In part two, we get down to the -  vegetables themselves: Tomatoes, onions,  beans, beets, lettuce, squash and many more.  The photos are not only helpful but also inspiring ��� and I'm not even a serious gardener. The book mesmerized me into trying  my own bedding plants, On my living room  window ledge, there are tiny two inch tomato  plants to prove it can be done���so far,  'the How to Collect Anything Book' Is  another book which is readable and written  by an expert who gives a generous portion of  her text to "background", Most of us have  collections that we are not aware of.

Be it bottles, buttons or badges it should  be gathered together somehow, organized,  displayed and recorded,"  Today's Junk may be tomorrow's antique.  Ms. Dorn suggests tliat you give each of your  pieces an accession number. If It were a tea  set, for example, you could give It the number  50.

John McNevin, board chairman,  suggested Thursday at the board meeting the  committee should consist of the board's  management committee, district staff and  the director of the electoral area affected.  McNevin said the board, in dealing with  developers over water and sewage, was  running into some 'sharp' people and he  hoped situations like the one involving two  Redrooffs Road developers who were slow in  paying $350,000 could be avoided.

He had previously suggested, to the  regional board that if ditches were cut across"  the road at an angle, the front wheels would  hit the dip one after, the other, thus  cushioning the shock. It seems a pity that the  crew of the high rig who stand on the side of  the road looking on during part of the  operation couldn't take a shovel and pack the  fill down before passing on to the next ditch.  However, blacktopping is scheduled for May,  so. let us hope that will be end of our road  troubles for a while.

The students of Elphinstone Secondary  School Council may be cleaning ditches and  picking up garbage in Gibsons if all goes well  this summer.  In a letter to Mayor Larry Labonte the  students have offered to clean up the town for  wages. All the money they earn will go into  Student Council funds and will be used for  fixing the school courtyard, buying paint and  furniture for the lunchroom and halls and a  mini-bus for the school.  Students are awaiting an answer from  Mayor Labonte as to the feasibility of the  program.  The mayor said the program will depend  on the amount of funds made available to the  village from the provincial government.

When someone in the audience asked  McNevin if he would guarantee the 50 per  cent drop, McNevin said he couldn't.  Cliff Connor, one resident who eventually  voted against the establishment of a specified  area, wanted to know where enough volunteers would be found to man the fire department.  He said the area was very scattered and  that there were many retired people. "We  need young fellows around and this area has  no particular high density area where there  would be enough volunteers at any one time."  Stelck said that 25 people Under 50 years of  age had signed a list to become volunteer fire  fighters and that he had met many more  people who would be willing to do it who  hadn't signed the list.  McNevin added that it is usually the case  that there are more people who want to be  volunteers that there is space for. "I don't  know what the attraction is, but for some  reason people want to be volunteer firemen,"  he said.  Stelck said the department would need a  reserve list of 25 firefighters and 12 would,  have to be active at anyone time.

George Matthews, president of the local  teachers' association, expressed his pleasure  at the meeting that the budget had not been  cut.  The total district costs for schools this  year will be $3.8 million as compared to $2.95  million last year.  However the actual costs in excess of the  basic program is down this year by some  $6,200 and the local tax levy needed to raise  this is down by .6 mills.  The basic program cost is $2.96 million and  this is raised by the 32.5 mills levied by the  province.  The cost above the basic program for 1976  is $636,000 and this must be raised by local  taxation on top of the basic levy. Last year the  cost to be raised locally above tho basic levy  was $642,500.

An industrial dock for heavy goods should be  provided, but the frontage of industry on the  bay should be restricted to the minimum  commensurate with docking needs and other  industrial land should be set back on an east-  west alignment. Residential development  further up West Porpoise Bay should not be  allowed to extend because of .difficulties of  terrain. Residential development in East  Porpoise Bay was discussed, and it was  proposed that this area need not be opened for  development immediately but could be saved  for future staging, at a time when storm  sewers are practical to contain run-off  problems.

The Committee recognized that many  details remain to be worked out, so the staff  were directed to produce a draft plan in order  to give a focus for detailed discussion at the  next meeting.  It was also decided at the meeting that the  Sechelt Vicinity Plan should become an official regional plan rather than a community  plan so that long delays In getting appropriate  by-laws through Victoria could be avoided.  ^Regional plans can be adopted without  reference to the Municipal Affairs Department.

Distress  Bowers fine  for impaired  Due to her obvious remorse at being involved in a drinking and driving offence,  Mary Morris of Gibsons was given only a $200  , fine and a one month driving suspension after  she pleaded guilty to impaired driving in  Sechelt Provincial court Wednesday.  The court was told Morris was drawn to  police attention when she appeared to ac-  cidentially slip the transmission of her car  into the parking gear while the car was  moving forward. The incident took place in  the Super Valu parking lot in Gibsons Mar.30.  Crown prosecutor Hugh McCallum said  Morris showed signs of impairment after she  was asked what the problem with her car  was.A breathalyzer test revealed a blood-  alcohol content of .14 per cent.  When Morris said she was very ashamed  of what she had done and became very upset,  McCallum asked the court for leniency  because of her remorse.  Judge Ian C. Walker agreed and imposed a  fine $100 less than the norm for impaired  driving.  The ferry committee struck by the  regional board to make recommendations on  improvements to the system has made a  number of recommendations, which include  not raising truck fares to keep consumer  costs down. '  In reporting the recommendations to the  regional board Thursday, Area B alternate  director Brian Stelck said the committee,  which was composed of several community  groups, was upset B.C. Ferries would apparently not keep its fare increases within the  federal 'governments wage and price control  guidelines.  He said the committee also felt the ferries  were an extension of the highways system,  and like all remote roads, the province should  subsidize them.  Other recommendations include the reissuing of commuter cards according to who  is on the voters' list, resident lanes for  commuters in the rush hours, the food service  on the ferries should pay for itself and if it  couldn't, it should be contracted out, late  night runs by the ferries and a Port Mellon to  Squamish highway should be studied.  Since tho new ferry rates are to be announced this week, the board decided to send  the citizen's committee report to Jack DaVis,  minister of transport, by night letter.

The Peninsula*^��e4  Don Morberg, Managing Editor  "A free press is* the unsleeping guardian of  every  other  right   that free   men  prize."  ��� Winston Churchill  Changing the act..  It must appear as obvious to the  Minister of Municipal Affairs as it does  to the Sunshine Coast regional government, that the Department of Municipal  Affairs presents a mounting, unwarranted obstacle to local politicians  trying to conduct local affairs.  And the obstacle does not really  result from vastly diverging views on  policy between the provincial and local  governments but rather it seems to stem  from the enormity of the task the  department has taken upon itself under  the Municipal Act.  The regional district and even the  municipalities to some extent, spend  months planning, talking, consulting,  drafting and re-drafting many of the bylaws it deems necessary. The by-law is  finally passed by the board and sent to  Victoria for approval. "Final  signatures" it is called. It has been  taking the department longer to puts it  signatures on the by-laws than it has for  part-time regional politicians and their  handful of staff to formulate and approve by-laws.  When these delays concern by-laws  that regulate land use of some form in  the district, dissatisfaction grows between the land owners an local politicians  because the land use is held in a  abeyance until the by-law is approved.  Sometimes the by:law awaiting approval concerns the use of one small lot.  Speeding up the approval process  seems the most obvious answer, but  there is no guarantee the new, improved  process would not lapse back to what  exists now.  We suggest that a fundamental  change to the Municipal Act that would  allow regional districts to function under  broader terms of reference should be  examined. A change that would see this  constant obstacle in Victoria eliminated.  At the moment community plans, for  which the regional board does all the leg-  work must be approved by Victoria..  These community plans, once installed,  give a measure of land use control in  small sections of regional districts. Yet,  Victoria says yes or no.  A system where Victoria and all its  government agencies could approve a  large, more general plan, covering each  regional district would seem more  justified. Once that regional plan has  been agreed on by the district and the  provincial government, the regional  board should then-be free to persue its  local affairs, with the terms of reference  set out in the regional plan, without  bureaucratic interference from Vic-  toriar^he regional board could then  move to install detailed community  plans within the district.  The adoption of such a plan would in  effect transfer more power to the  regional boards. Such a move could also  elirninate conflicts between the regional  district and individual government  agencies that seem to have become  more prevalent these days. Regional  boards would be more capable of performing the major duty, they have been  charged with ��� community planning.  Even if B.C. Ferries has got enough  bad administrative sense to hire 20 per  cent more staff than it needs, surely,  Transport Minister Jack Davis has got  better political and cornmen sense than  to go dumping 400 ferry personnel on a  rotten job market.  The B.C. Government Employees  Union says it is bad administration on  the part of B.C. Ferries that has allowed  the hiring of too many people. And Mr.  Davis says the union's lack of flexibility  in shift scheduling has put B.C. Ferries  in a position where it is spending too  much on wages and they therefore must  get rid of some people.  There is undoubtedly some truth to  both sides of the story ��� a story that has  not really been influenced by the rank  and file member who is going to find  himself out on the street without a job.  Severing 400 people from a pay  check, apart from being heartless, is  certainly incongruent with a Social  Credit election promise to lower the  unemployment rate in B.C.  But even if ferry personnel must be  cut back, why wouldn't a government,  which has made it clear it likes to see  people working, not practise attrition.  Attrition is a normal, humane  government procedure for ridding itself  of surplus personnel.  Perhaps Mr. Davis feels it would be  cheaper to place 400 people on welfare  rather than to subsidize some measure  of productivity and public benefit. The  problem is, of course, Human Resources  Minister Bill Vander Zalm will have  something to say about maintaining Mr.  Davis' rejects.  Anymore like you?  Art McPhee deserves a note of thanks  from this community. He has ours.  He is the provincial emergency  program co-ordinator for the Sunshine  Coast and the person singlely most  responsible for the successful  deployment of last week's disaster  exercise to test hospital and related  agencies capabilities to handle an  emergency involving many injured  people. It was the fiist time such an  exercise has been tried on the Peninsula.  Residents should be happy if hot  reassured with the RCMP, the ambulance drivers, the volunteer firemen  and the hospital staff's ability displayed  during the mock emergency. The idea  was to find fault with the hospital's  emergency plan.  But it was Art McPhee and his host of  some 30 volunteers who gave these  agencies a chance to show what they  could do if the chips were really down.  He organized the whole exercise, an  event that had over 500 man hours go  into the planning.  As regional board chairman John  McNevin said to him last week after the  board thanked and applauded him for  his efforts: "If you have any shipmates  like you leaving the Armed Forces, why  not talk them into settling on the Sunshine Coast."  x\\WW\\  Page A-4  The Peninsula Times  Wednesday, May 5,1976  PENINSULA  by Leslie  Yates  DATELINE  DON'T WORRY dear, Kojak will be back in a minute ��� this is just one of  those disaster ^simulations.  llllllllleS by Don Morberg  Editor's Note:" Don left for some well  deserved holidays last week and that left me  with the problem of what to do with his '53  Minutes'. Well, as you know, advertising  personnel are latent journalists; just waiting  for their chance to blossom on newsprint. So  when I suggested to Peter Reid, our advertising manager, that he should write a  column for. a change he rushed to a  typewriter. Only when he got to it, he didn't  know what to write about. After a bit of  discussion the topic became so obvious.  Having worked with Don for some time  now as his less glamorous counterpart in the  advertising department, I jumped at The  Hat's offer to take over this space while Don  takes some time off. He won't be gone for  long, but we needed a break.  I thought this would be a great opportunity  to air a few of Don's more interesting  idiosyncrasies, while his power of veto is  temporarily suspended.  Don is a bit of an enigma. For example, of  all the columnists ever to win the Dominion  Textiles Gold Medal for excellence I'm  willing to bet that Don is the only one who's  idea of celebrating the event was to gather his  colleagues, in a B.C. Ferries blacktopped  parking lot-in the sweltering heat and force  them to drink tepid beer.  I'm also willing to bet that he is the only  editor in Canada who will drop-kick the ac-  coustic partitions in his office, without  provocation, just to see how his Karate is  coming along.  On the occasion of my first visit to! his  house, he spent ten minutes introducing me  around to his plants.  Don has a phenomenal memory for people,  including his entire kindergarten class, and  for trivia of any sort. This latter appealed to  me, being of a similar bent, and when I first  started. at the newspaper a small contest  developed between us to challenge each  other's recall. He finally stumped me on the  name of the lead guitarist for the Jor-  danaires, Elvis Presley's back-up band. But  then, what did I expect from the guy who  memorized the credits from Ben Hur? Including the cast of thousands. If you ever  want to know who was the third peasant from  the left in the opening sequence at the  coliseum, you know who to ask.  It should be pointed out here, I think, that  all these.are assets in a journalist. Many  people have revealed a lot more than they  ever intended to, just because they couldn't  tell whether or not he was even looking their  way, let alone hearing what they said.  Don is good at 'reading' people, just by  guagcing their reaction to him. When you  approach him for consultation he is likely to  respond with 'Say the secret word and I'll  give you two hundred dollars'. Complete with  the proper New York accent. He has been  known to answer a telephone caller with  "Neil Here? I don't know any Neil Here."  Once, in Powell River, I looked up over the  partition between our desks to see Don bark  like a spaniel into the telephone. When he  hung up he just shrugged and said 'Well he  told me to speak.'  Don is a character of enormous empathy  and sympatico; and he goes in all directions  at once as even a casual glance at his office  will tell. In fact, I received a telphone call  from the local detachment once��asking me to  come in to the office because a window had  been broken during the night and the police  were under the impression that Don's office  had been ransacked. They were amazed to  hear that it was always like that, in spite of all  that, it's a controlled sort of disorder, he  always knows just what's on his desk and it  always managed to get sorted out by the  deadline. The previous publisher of the  Powell River News once tried to get Don to.  tidy up his desk, but had to abandon the  project when visitors to the office assumed  that the cleanliness meant that Don had left  the company.  You have to make sure you're in no particular hurry when you go out somewhere  with Don because of the amount of time he  spends running into old acquaintances."That  doesn't sound so bad on the face of it, but you  have to remember that he's never forgetten  anyone he'ever met, Not too surprisingly,  they've never forgotten him either.  Don is definitely a Marxist. A Groucho  Marxist He once asked me what I thought of  the idea of equipping everyone in the office,  including Pearl (a saintly middle-aged lady  who was then our receptionist), with a  painted-on moustache and a pair of glasses  with thick bushy eyebrows mounted above on  springs, just to see what customer's reactions  would be. We had to scrap the idea because  we couldn't figure out how to rig up the duck  that would drop from the ceiling whenever  the secret word was said.  He refuses to take life too seriously, which  is good because it allows him more scope to  enjoy his work, It's a difficult craft and he's  mastered it, developing a highly unusual  style along the way. I like to describe him as a  cross between Perry White and the Mad  Hatter.  I think what sums him up best is a plaque  with which he was presented by a group of  students In Powell River. Inscribed on it was  simply: 'Don Morberg. You oughtta be in  pictures.'  Even in the most serious events there can  be a lighter side ��� if you look for it. The  emergency exercise carried out last week to  test St. Mary's Hospital's disaster plan was  one such-happening. ,  Details on the necessity for such an  exercise are explained in other parts of these  pages, so they won't be re-hashed here. The  operation was worth every bit of a lot of effort  that went into it.  About 8:30 a.m. Thursday, just as the sun  began to scatter the long shadows cast by the  trees around the Roberts Creek Community  Hall,'Art McPhee, his five umpires, and 20  . Sea Cadet volunteers gathered in preparation  for the event they were about to stage. Most  volunteers were there to.play bus crash  victims.  Since volunteers who would have their legs  and ears really, broken were scarce the next  best method was found to be simulated injuries.    .'"...,-  Dr. Eric Paetkau, a man of major surgical  and minor political note, listed 20 injuries of  varying degrees of severity that might be  found in people involved in a bus crash. Tags  telling who had a case of what were made up  and then placed around the wrists of the  victims.  I had a look at some of those tags, and  heavens, if that is what can happen to you  when a bus runs off the road, I'm going  .bicycle or carrier pigeon. The words for the  injures were bigger than the four inch tags. I  think Dr. Paetkau must have misunderstood  land he thought the bus had been hit by a  loaded earth mover or an armour piercing  bazooka shell.  Clay Carby was one of the volunteer  victims, you know Clay, the draftsman at the  regional board and ex-chief of one of those  public 'spirited' social clubs, the Kinsmen.  Anyway, Clay in search of an injury that  he felt would get him more than just one  morning off work, picked up a tag that spelled"  out in living English, 'fractured skull, brain  hanging out.' It made us both ill just to read  the tag. He passed on that one, not wanting to  end lip at Harvey's home for the chronically  dead.  As zero hour neared (time to alert the  alerted RCMP), Dennis Shuttleworth, local  politico and defender of Sechelt's right not to  have a marina in Porpoise Bay .looked up at  the operation boss and the other umpires and  said 'Gentlemen, it is time to synchronise our  watches'. I'll bet it was the first opportunity  he has had to say that since he left the navy.  When the police and ambulances arrived  on'the scene there were bodies scattered all  over. Since there were too many victims for  the ambulances, the RCMP officer, who was  keeping the rubber-necks moving along High-  [istory shows gun control opposition understandable  Jack Pearsall, MP  c-o Peninsula (Times  Sechelt, B.C..'  Dear Mr. Pearsall:  You said in your recent Times Interview  that you were getting 200 letters a week,  protesting the current Gun Control Bill now  before Parliament. To mo this is understandable, for a great many people feel  Uiat It is not a social move, designed to  protect citizens from each other, but a  political one, aimed at weakening tho  people's position In case civil unrest or even  outright rebellion develops.  Several years ago I wns Investigating the  sale of sub-machlnc guns nnd machine guns  by the crown assets disposal corporation.  (Yes, they sold 3,000 Stcn Cuius In one  batcp ln the city of Vancouver. This was  checked out hy the Security Intelligence  Branch of the RCMP) Robert Bonner was  then B.C.'s attorney general nnd a close  friend and he asked me to let him have any  material I ran across regarding gun control,  as he wa;i getting a considerable amount of  pressure from the gun control groups  throughout the province.  Whnt I found was, I'm sure, not what  cither Mr. Bonnor or myself expected to find.  In the first place, gun controls have never  worked to the advantage of the people they  were first designed to protect.  The first record of anna control tlmt I  could find went hack to biblical times when  private citizens In some cities wore forbidden  to carry even belt knives. Without arms the  American Revolution could never have  succeeded, and the French Revolution succeeded only because an armory and  magazine was Inadvertently left unguarded.  The Welsh people, particularly the miners,  were kept in slave-like submission because  they were unable to secure arms despite the  best efforts of Thomas Payne (Rights of  Man), one of the world's 'greatest  revolutionaries.  Norway had firearms registration nt the  beginning of World War'II and when the  Germans invaded that country they simply  went to each city hnll, picked up the  , registration lists, and disarmed the citizens.  Norway's resistance, as you know, wns  practically non-existent for the first couple of  years of the war.  Britain has had rigid firearms controls for  many years and for many years It worked,  simply because the British are hy nature a  law-abiding people, but after Dunkirk, full-  page ads appeared in United States and  Canadian newspapers pleading, "For God's  sake send us your nrmsl" They still have  rigid controls today but armed crimes have  proliferated steadily to the present day.  One of tho anomalies of tho arms control  situation Is that tho Sullivan Act of New York  City Is one of the most restrictive enacted on  tho North American continent. Jt was Introduced and given Its name by a ward-heeler  nnd saloon owner, Big Tim Sullivan, In the  lfWO's. He used It to disarm his political opponents while hi.'i own followers, civic office  holders, were allowed to bear arms. New  York hns one of the highest crime rates ln the  country.  Probably the most commonly used  weapon ln shootings Involving citizens Is the  .303 service weapon. When more modern  arms were adopted, these rifles became  surplus and were sold by the millions at a  very low prize. Prime Minister Trudeau,', in  addressing the finance committee several  years ago, announced Uiat Uie salo of these  weapons had realized over a million dollars  that year and tliat he had no intention of  restricting their sale. This wns widely  recorded in the press at that time.  No one would quarrel with the Idea of not  nllowlng unqualified persons to purchase and  bear arms, nor will anyone quarrel with the  idea of ellmlnntlng the sale of machine guns,  ' mortars, bazookas, etc. to civilians, even  collectors; these weapons are ostensibly de-  activlatcd but any competent gunsmith can  easily rc-actlvate them, using parts tliat are  readily available on the war-surplus market.  These parts should be restricted as woll  because It Is possible to assemble whole, and  very serviceable weapons from them.  Flnnlly, 1 don't think this law can be enforced. There are juiit too many guns around  and too much opposition to It as It now stands.  There are already too many unenforced laws  on the statutes without adding another,  Recruit your gura clubs, game branches, etc.  und encourage Uicm, even subsidize them to  inaugurate firearms (please note I do not use  th word hunters) training programmes, and  you will develop nn unofficial militia to whom  you can turn in tlmo of need, so long as you  remain a government responsible to the  people.

I think the officer  forgot to tell the driver and his lady  passenger that it wasn't the real thing.  Police and firemen unloaded his^van that  was full of rugs and rug cleaning equipment  and the driver stood. by in complete  bewilderment. I don't know what his lady  friend thought. She sat glued to the front seat  of the van, eyes bulging at all the activity. It  must have appeared insane. People laying on  the ground moaning, ambulance drivers  rushing stretchers around, police covering  victims with blankets, firemen looking at tags  on wrists, sirens and emergency lights going  and the press and one policeman going  around taking pictures of the whole thing. Not  being from the Sunshine Coast she couldn't  possibly understand.  Once the van was finally unloaded, the  driver told the police he had a 11:15 ferry to  catch. It was now 10:30. Since it was only a  fake disaster, the van was loaded back up and  the couple drove off. The lady's dazzled expression is likely still wearing off.  , , Inside the hospital, after the first ambulance arrived with four victims, a slight  medical tiff was overheard between Dr.  Paetkau and a young physician over where a  certain patient should be taken.  The young doctor maintained she was hurt  so bad she shouldn't be moved out of the  room. Trying the soft sell approach first Dr.  Paetkau said she wasn't going to die and that  she should be moved. (The victim looked very  relieved) No, the young doctor would have no  part of it. She was in serious shape (I could  tell by the length of the words he was using)  and she should stay.  Listen, said Dr. Paetkau, there are more  serious patients coming and we could need  the space here. That stopped the young  doctor. How did he know that anyway? I will  never tell.  Gordon Dixon, district's water superintendent and the man who is the lawn god (see  ad) here in the summer time, was the bus  driver. The culprit behind the wheel when the  bus went off the road injuring all those Sea  Cadets.  Program co-ordinator Art McPhee said  after the exercise was over there would have  been a warrant out for Gordon's arrest had it  ��� been a real accident. Gordon left the hospital  (injuries and all) before the police had a  chance to question, charge, jail, take breath  samples or anything. He walked out. But, he  had a water system to build ��� there are a lot  of lawns out on Redrooffs Road. ;  ,   My only wish is that all disasters could be  like that one.  ��tr aigllt       by Jock Bachop  Well, so much for pyramid power. All the  pyramids in the world wouldn't have helped  the Maple Leafs, a team composed of youth,  good legs and desire to beat the defending  Stanley Cup champion Philadelphia Flyers.  Sure they gave it a good try and anything can  happen in a seven game series, but generally  speaking, poise and experience will prevail in  the long run.  The pyramid caper was merely an indication of what the Leafs brass felt about  their tqam's chances of winning the series.  Sometimes I think we are retreating to the  dark ages. I'm surprised no one thought of  making effigies of the Flyers and stuck pins  in them. Might as well do the thing right, no?  It's a sad reflection on modern so called  sport when a professional team has to call on  the powers of the occult, to help them win  games. I don't know why they bothered with  all the mumbo jumbo. There was noway they  could win. I mean, aside from having a good  , team the Flyers have strengthened their  roster with a club priest and their ace in the  hole, Kate Smith, They gotta be hard to beat.  Anyway, if some of you are chuckling at  the Leafs' expense, stop and examine your  own idiosyncrasies for a moment. How many  of you read the horoscopes printed in the daily  newspapers? A startling number, I bet.  If you arc like me, you read it if it looks  advantageous you smirk to yourself and  spend the rest of the day waiting for the good  things to manifest themselves. On the other  hand, If the day's reading is negative and  gives warning-of dire happenings to come,  Uien, like me, you probably throw the paper  down muttering about the bloody nonsense  people write and who believes ln horoscopes  anyway? I guess we all liave our harmless  llttlo hang-ups.  I remember when I wns a kid I would  , never walk on a crack In Uie sidewalk. Noway  I would do that for I was assured by the other  kids that commltlng this liedlous offence  would result In my mother's back being  broken. Anyone watching me walk to school  ln those dnys must liave thought I was nuts. I  bumped Into lamp standards and people nnd  anything else in my path as head down I  skittered and Up toed on my erratic way. I  guess It wasn't just the sidewalk thnt was  cracked. How about spiders? How many of  you nvold stepping on spiders because It Is a  sure way of bringing rain. At least that's what  the legend says.  I guess It's all a reminder to as that wo aro  descended from people way back In the dark  iigesl, who If thoy wero rich enough, had their  own personal star gazer to read the heavens  and ascertain If the time was advantageous  for Journeys or battles or whatever. I don't  know whnt the poor people did. Same as today  1 guess���crossed their fingers and hoped for  the best.  No doubt the list of .superstitions is endless  and If any of you dear renders have any pet  ones, feel free to share them with me. I think  it would make for interesting reading.  In any case, if any of you are interested in  pyramids and what powers some people  claim they possess, remember, this. The  chances are if you find someone under a  pyramid ��� they have been dead for a very  long time.  My plea for help in getting rid of the ants  sharing our home did not go unheeded. My  thanks to the good folk who sent me remedies.  We will try everything and let the readers  know which works best. I was down in 'Old  Smokey' recently and my mother claimed at  the time that all you had to do to get rid of  ants was to sprinkle sugar around the house. ,  When I protested that this idea would just  attract all the ants to the sugar she agreed  and said that's when you get 'em, bam bam.  Just like that, Whatever turns you on I guess.  Anyway, with all the advice I'm getting  those ants are going to get clobbered one way  or another.  Changing the subject, how do you feel  about the standard of entertainment on the  Peninsula?  Not enough movies, music theatre or  bingo? Put your mind to rest, dear readers.  Thanks to the powers that be who are  responsible for the flow of traffic on the  Peninsula, we now liave built-in entertainment. From now on until fall whenever  the family is bored and tired of sun and water  Just pack a picnic lunch for the gang and head  for Sechelt. (Don't forget a few cold bottles of  beer for father.) Jf the day is hot leave early  in case you have problems parking. The idea  is to get n good spot, so you have an unob-,  structed view of tho four wny stop sign there.  Your vigilance will be amply rewarded every  hour or so when tho tourists from tho ferries  line up, fuming nt the delay, blowing their  horns and teaching your kids new words and  giving them a valuable Insight into adult  behaviour,  1 tell you, it promises to he more  educational than Sesame Street.  I hope the local authorities spend somo  time there too. Maybe then they will realize  the obvious and correct the situation.

They represented 20 of the 23  Auxiliaries that make up the Lower Mainland  Division of the B.C. Association of Hospital  Auxiliaries.  , Thanks was sincerely expressed to the six  local Auxiliaries of St. Mary's Hospital for the  capable way they organized the Area meeting  and for providing such glorious sunshine.  Margaret Lang Hastings, Area  Representative called the meeting to order  at 10:30. a.m., everyone having registered,  having enjoyed coffee and fruit bread,, and  wearing their lovely Dogwood corsages made  from styrofoam by Mrs. Margaret Humm of  Sechelt.  Prayer was said by Mrs. Jean Paterson,  president of the Pender Harbour" Auxiliary.  Welcome was extended by the Co-ordinating  Council President for St. Mary's Hospital  Auxiliaries, Mrs. Evelyn Olson, also of  Pender Harbour.  Greetings were expressed by Mayor  Harold Nelson on behalf of the Village of  Sechelt.  Mrs. Dana Kearney, R.N. Acting Administrator for St. Mary's Hospital spoke  highly of the work done by the Auxiliary  members, the $20,000 to $30,000 of equipment  purchased each year, the hours that totalled  up to the equivalent of 5 full time workers  which at today's wages represents many  dollars.  National Vice President of the Canadian  Association of Hospital Auxiliaries, Mrs.  Louise Hughes, who is also past president of  the BCHA, brought salutations from National  President Mrs. Lynn JRosenfield.  Mrs. Hughes spoke on the National  Education Fund, the original idea of fund  raising for this worthwhile effort by a  national tag day. This is not allowable in  some areas so perhaps a special money  raising event or a straight donation from each  Auxiliary would greatly assist.  The dollars are to be used for Education  seminars in remote regions. The majority of  Auxiliaries have ready access to further  education. Northern people are miles away  from other Hospitals and Auxiliaries and it  has been not possible to reach them before.  Northern areas are limited in the number of  delegates they may send to convention so the  seminars will go to them.  We joined to help provide T.L.C. (tender  loving care) to Hospitals and this is an extension of that. We are not going to be selfish  and not give." Cheques to be sent to the  Vancouver Office in time for Mrs. Hughes to  be able to take them in June to the National  Convention in Ottawa.  President of B.C.H.A. Mrs. Muriel Knight  replaced Mrs. Beverly Sackville as  nominating chairman. Mrs. (Ian) Valerie  Wilson of Peace Arch Hospital was elected  Area Representative. Mrs. J.J. Knller of  Vancouver General Hospital was the other  contender, both ladies with excellent  credentials for the position.  Mrs.  Wilson  expressed  the   wish  the  uxiliarlcs in the Lower Mainland would  Invito her to visit them.  The feature speaker for the day wns Mr.  John Lewis, 'Cliairmnn nnd Supervisor of  Truasportatlon committee on the mini-bus.  "The mini-bus Is something that we  needed for many, many a day, the reason  mainly being tho nature of tho terrain. A strip  52 miles long with communities fl miles apart.  Sechelt Motor Transport, the only available  transportation and this is geared for Vancouver and Powell Hiver traffic. Much  needed facilities suehns Hospital, manpower  etc, arc cither in Gibsons or Sechelt creating  quite a problem. '  Mr. Lewis went on to explain how tho  money wns raised to start the bus. They put  on a drive for 100 dnys to raise $10,000, during  tills tlmo they had dances, raffles anil  donations came, nnd at tho end of 100 days  there was 12,000 dollars, enough to get them  started.  The busy mini-bus has been on the rood for  10 months and has carried 12,000 passengers.  Taking people to the hospital for treatment, or to see their ailing spouse. Extended  (-are Patients for outings, transporting  patients home, providing needed transportation for other services, dentist or  lawyer etc. Three trips a day between Gibsons and Sochelt plus extra aide trips nnd an  occasional trip to Pender Harbour us It Is not  available lo service Pender well. It Is hoped  to have a second bus in the near future.  Distance has prohibited the use of taxis  from a patients' point of view, especially if  they have to come into physio three times per  week.  When a second bus is available this one  will be kept for transporting handicapped and  wheelchair patients and the time consuming  job of moving out the seats will be eliminated.  Funded by the Department of Human  Resources the budget barely covers  necessities. An added expense is the twice a  year set of new tires running around $300.  Many questions from the audience plus the  suggestion that a service group be found to  look after the added expenses.  Driver Captain John Bunyan, John Lewis  and Hugh Duff were on hand with the Minibus to demonstrate the hydraulic lift for  putting the wheelchairs aboard with ease and  to answer further questions on the operation.  Auxiliaries were reminded of the Annual  Convention of the B.C.H.A. to be held May 12  to 14th in Vancouver.  The Sechelt Legion Ladies catered for the  smorgasbord luncheon, a tremendous job  well done. Nine ladies of the.'.Legion had-,  prepared green, potato, cottage cheese and  jellied salads served with ham or turkey  slices, with cake for dessert. They had never  handled a crowd this large before. The  number that came were greater than was  first expected but they rose to the occasion,  pleasing the gathering with their food and  service.  Mary Redman provided , background  music on the piano during lunch hour, easing  the strain of waiting in line to eat. The good  fellowship that prevailed throughout the day  made itself heard as a spontaneous sing-song  burst forth from the waiting eaters.  The message from the Provincial  Executive was delivered by  First  Vice-  President Margaret MacPherson; "Changing  Role of the Volunteer."  . Mrs. MacPherson is from Windermere's  Auxiliarly to Fairmont Hospital, and this is  the largest conference she has been to. The  East Kootenay area meetings number around  50..  Thinking deeply of volunteerism, people  who care what happens to other people;  giving time and activity in service.  Volunteer recognition week is May 16 to 22  in Canada and U.S.A. Citizens who are  volunteer motivated by good will find it a  rewarding and enriching experience.  Bouquets of flowers brightening up the  room were given by the Board Members of St.  Mary's Hospital and at the end of the day they  were drawn for as door prizes. Alice Burdette  of Halfmoon Bay was the first lucky winner,  the next two went to White Rock members.  Each of the six local auxiliaries were  asked to provide a poster depicting their  activities. It was excellently done; showing  tray favors provided through the year, a  fishing derby, items made for sale at the gift  shop, and a variety of activities, one was done  by Kurt Reichel.  There was time before the buses left at 3  p.m. for tours through the Hospital: Volunteer  Director Muriel Eggins had guides- ready in  their red smocks. The Thrift shop ladies in  red kept the shop open to show their operation  to the many interested Auxilians.  A lot of praise went to the Co-Ordinating  Council members who each had a job to do  and did it well.  They wefe a grand group that filled our  village. The last area meeting held in Sechelt  was in 1967 when they filled the old Legion  hall. That means in the next nine years we  need a still larger meeting place.  The Fall area meeting will be hosted by  Richmond General Hospital, nine years since  they had a turn too.  V/h>*t  1      \ 1  :^XC   \     \ .  ��***?.��*  TOMATO/VEG.

He is cousellor, parent, advisor and  psychologist to the many people who come for  help.  To the troubled woman on the phone he  must be sympathetic and at the same time  straight forward. He must advise her of her  rights. To the teenager who is always in  trouble he must be able to diagnose the  problem, often based on the family situation.  The job is a challenging combination of  counselling, social work and just plain human  understanding, something Neil's matter-of-  fact frank attitude expresses.  He moved to Sechelt two years ago from  Vancouver and "loves it here". After six  years in probation and parole work in the  "down and out" parts of Vancouver he appreciates the personal involvement he gets in  < the community.  McKenzie and. Ted Peters, the other  probation officer, currently have about 80  people on probation ranging in ages from 12 to  65. A probation officer's job includes making  pre-sentence reports which involves checking  with parents.in the case of juveniles.  In these reports he can make one of the  following recommendations.  1. No action.  .2. Probation supervision without court  action for a period not longer than 12 months.  This is called a Letter of Arrangement.  3. Court action.  The judge uses the pre-sentence report as  a tool in sentencing. If the juvienile is placed  on a period of definite or indefinite probation,  conditions' could include: a curfew,  resititution for damages, attending school,  attending a week-end program, attending the  S.A.L.T. program or living at the Marpole  Hostel or the House of Concord, both  rehabilitation centres. If placed under  supervision, the probationer must report to  the probation officer as directed. Failure to  do so can result in a breach, with the offender  returning to court. Indefinite probation can  terminated in court by the Judge on the  request of the officer.  Probation officers are also involved in  community investigation for people on parole  and the supervision of paroled people. Parole  is part of a jail sentence. Probation is not:  Officers also offer counselling to family  members who seek help.  In Sechelt the probation unit have a close  working relationship with the Human  Resouces Society and other agencies in town.  The personal involvement that is missing in  the city is here says McKenzie, "It's part of  living in a small community and being able to  . count on other people when you know you  need help". Making use of other services in  A hunt has started for funds to permit the  construction of an automotive bay at Pender  Hardour Secondary for September 1976, or for  as soon after as possible.  At the April 26 meeting the school board  authorized its management committee to  explore with the Department of Education,  all possible sources of funds for the  automotive bay.  The school board had planned to budget  for the bay in its 1977 budget, but the  management committee report said that  after a meeting with the Education Department's director of vocational services that it  would be highly desirable to have the bay  installed for September 1976.  town is the key to helping people successfully,  he says.  Right now the probation unit is involved in  many different rehabilitation projects. The  Volunteer Probation Sponsors Program  under the Department of the Attorney-  General has been successful in helping  probationers.  The program arose from a desire to offer  an additional way to reach people' who are in  ' trouble and to provide a means for concerned  citizens to help. There are now 12 sponsors  aged 25 to 60. No previous experience is  necessary to become a sponsor. Volunteers  from the community are not trained since the  aim of the program is to use the personal  qualities they already possess, says  McKenzie. The sponsor gives a minimum of  four hours per month to the probationer, each  month reporting on the progress of his or her  charge. Sponsors are recruited for a period of  12 months.  "If a person can find at least one  responsible person with whom to be involved,  who thinks he is worthwhile, he will tend to  think of himself as a worthwhile person,"  says McKenzie.  The group home at Wilson Creek is also  rehabilitation centre. It's aim is to help  children   and   families   with   emotional  problems   and   is   not   necessarily   for  - delinquent people.  The home offers a live-in situation for  children from troubled families. Sometimes it  is necessary to remove children from the  home, says McKenzie.  "Parents are always involved in the  counselling but sometimes people can benefit  if they are removed from the source of the  trouble for awhile". The home is sponsored  by the Wilson Creek Communnity Association  and funded by Human Resources.  One of the biggest problems in Sechelt is  alcohol says McKenzie. "Most crimes stem  from drinking."  He says there is not as much drug use as  people tend to believe. Most people are  alcohol oriented. In a community with a high  unemployment rate, leisure time is spent in  the bar.  McKenzie blames the high unemployment  rate on the lack of a reliable manpower office  in Sechelt. He says the situation is scandalous.  Probation officers are sometimes forced  to provide a service which they don't have  time for. "We are looking for jobs for people  because the manpower service is  inadequate." ...  There is no full time manpower person in  Sechelt and the office is only open once a  week for a short time. Manpower's  justification for this is lack of jobs. McKenzie  says their narrow-minded attitude is only  looking at one approach to the job situation.  He feels there is no scope for people to  exercise their initiative and create work  without the sanction of the conventional job  market.  Manpower is currently doing a survey to  find out the kind of jobs available in this area.  The other .side of Neil McKenzie's life  revolves around his family of three children  and his band the Whiskey Jack. When he dons  his broad brimmed hat and bass guitar  another dimension to his community personality comes out.

Hotelmen's  Association. f  Better public  relations urged  usiiiesses  . On Thursday, April 22,1976, Mrs. Yvonne  Sullivan and Roy Bell,hosted a luncheon at  their Pender Harbour Hotel given for  members of the B.C. Hotelmen's Association.  A surprise guest was Chief Kbot-La-Cha,  representing the Capilano Indians of N.  Vancouver.  Speaking for the Association, President  Frank Burger urged local businessmen to  make themselves known in the community  and to each other, and cited the Pender .  Harbour Hotel's organization of their forthcoming First Annual Fishing Derby as a  commendable step in this direction. He noted  that all the proceeds would go to the Kinsmen  Rehabilitation Foundation for the Handicapped of British Columbia.  The local scene was represented by  Constable Bob Prest of the RCMP, Mr. Bob  Audet, Manager of the Bank of Montreal  (Madeira Park, Pender Harbour). Also attending from the KRF were Mrs. Joan  Westenberg, Provincial Campaign's Assistant, and Mr. Gerry Warner.  It was announced at this luncheon that the  Chief Knot La Cha will be one of the three  judges for the Salmon Derby, May 22 through  24.  -, The building inspector's report presented  to the Regional Board Thursday notes there  was an increase of 16 permits issued in March  ,1976 as compared to March last year bringing  the total to 54 from 38.  H. Morris-Reade, chief building inspector  for the district says 1976 will be a productive  buUding season with an increase of activity in  the Pender Harbour area with the influx of  summer residents. Modular and double-wide  dwellings remain the most popular type of  construction he says..  A visit to Gambier Island with the  Regional Planner is planned for the end of  May he says. "Purpose of the visit will be to.  ascertain the developed areas and the  number of dwellings that were started prior  to the issuance of building permit."  Applications have been received by the  building department for building permits on  Keats Island. Health Department approval is  required before the permits can be issued, he  notes.  Works Superintendent G. Dixon also  reports 28 new water connections and six hew  users between March 15 and April 15. During  March the low zone storage tank on Redrooffs  Road near Francis Road was erected and the  high zone tank was nearly completed, he  says.  The pump house on Highway 101 has been  poured and the electrician will start as soon  as the braces which support the concrete  forms can be removed, approximately May 1.  Six hundred feet of six inch ductile iron  was laid on the western end of the system to  take in a further 19 lots, he says, ahd approximately 20 crossings were made.  HI1  funds  students  The regional district has received approval Thursday for funding under the  Provincial Seasonal Employment Program  in the amount of $11,533.39. This will allow the  hiring of six post-secondary students for four  months starting, in May and two high school  students for two months.  The board also received a $3,000 administration grant from the Department of  Leisure Services which will give the district's  parks and recreation budgets more flexibility  in covering the additional costs for minimum  wage, supervision, benefits and incidental  expenses.  Neil Campbell, owner of Sechelt's Campbell's Variety, has come up with a few ideas  on how Sechelt merchants could get into the  swing of Timber Days.  He suggests that the shop owners put on a  Timber Days sale May 20 to 22, decorate their  stores with a Timber Days theme and have  their staff dress up for the three days in attire  suitable for Timber Days. ��� ...'  He is offering a trophy for the store  coming up with the best effort and a trophy  for the staff member best dressed.  He is hoping all Sechelt's proprietors will  get behind the idea and help to support the  Timber Days Committee.  Coast Cable Visition has applied to the  Canadian Radio-Television Commission for  authority to increase the Company's connection and service charges.  The application which was submitted to  the Canadian Radio-Television Commission  on March 23, 1976 requests authority to increase connection charges from $15 to $25 for  the first or main outlet. Extension installation  charges would remain at $15 per outlet.  Monthly services charges, presently $5.50 per  month for the first outlet and $1.25 per month  for each extension, would be increased to $7  and $1.50 per month, respectively, if the  application is approved.  A Coast Cable Vision official stated that  "should the CRTC approve the increases,  such increases would not be retroactive and  in fact, even if the application were approved  by August 1976, the Company would not likely  implement the increased rates until October  1, 1976."  If the Commission approves the application the new rates would then be similar  to those rates presently in effect in the  community of Squamish.  The Company's spokesman added that if  the increased rates were approved, it would  be the first time in six years of operation that  Sechelt and Gibsons cablevision charges  were adjusted.  It was further stated that a good portion of  the increased cash flow would be used to  improve overall system reliability and  performance and that it would be impossible  for the Company to maintain present service  standards in the future without these increases.   . The first three winners of the McKee  trophy, awarded annually to the person  giving the greatest service to the advancement of Canadian aviation, were the  northern bush pilots H.A. "Doc" Oaks, CH.

COMMUNITY CLUB  A general meeting of The Pender Harbour  Community Club was held in the hall on April  26 at 8 p.m.  After the reports on their various activities had been read the subject of building a  new hall was discussed. The Pender Harbour  Lions have leased quite a few acres of land  just past the Pender Harbour Secondary  School and had asked the Community Club if  they would like to put a new hall on it as the  present one is in need of extensive  renovations.  A Prefab Steel Building, on a slab at a cost  of $6 to $7 a square foot could be built instead  of themore expensive conventional type. This  was an nice offer as everyone agreed, but the  Community club doesn't have $80,000, the  present library and kitchen were Centennial  projects less than ten years ago and the  majority of the people like the present  location, so after much controversy a motion  was passed which authorizes the executive to  fix the foundation, drainage and install a new  floor at a cost of approximately $9,000.  The Pender Harbour Community club  Annual Spring Bazaar will be held in the  Community Hall on Saturday, May 8,1976 at 2  p.m. There will be bargains in plants, home  baking, sewing and gift items. A good  selection of baby and childrens wear also  many things suitable for Mother's Day. A  Cake Walk will be featured and a fish pond for  the wee ones. Tea and coffee will be served.  The Community Club plays an important role  in the Harbour and needs more support to  continue keeping the hall operating, also  workers will be at the hall on Friday evening  May 7, if anyone has any donations of plants  or articles for the white elephant table.  EGMONT WELCOMES EVERYONE -  On Saturday evening April 24, a  smorgasbord was held in their Community  Hall and over 100 people plus children attended.  There was an abundance of various foods  all donated and prepared by the ladies and  the tables were decorated with daffodils.  There was no dance after the dinner as it was  a meet your friends and neighbors affair.  The children were shown films at the  school and Iris Griffith let us have a peek at  the library which,would be opening on  Monday.

FIRE DISTRICT  The  Pender Harbour  Fire  Protection,  District meeting was held on April 24 in the  Community Hall at Madeira Park, B.C.  It was quite a disappointment to the  firemen to see the lack of interest in their  affairs by the general public as only 13 people  turned out for the meeting. Two new Directors elected are Frank Lee and John Wilcocks  with terms to April 1979.  A new fire truck has been ordered for the"  Garden Bay Fire Hall $49,000 plus tax ahd  should arrive around the latter part of  August. $15,000 paid and the final payment 30  .days after acceptance. The truck has 840  g.p.m. pump. The budget was approved and  passed by Victoria and is 50 per cent higher  than last year.  There will be fire hydrants put in the  Garden Bay area, no specific date set. The  Pender Harbour Fire department has 30  volunteer firemen with Barry Wilbee their  fire chief. A report from Mr. Wilbee follows;  During 1975 the Pender Harbour Volunteer  Fire Dept. responded to 20 requests for  emergency assistance, 16 of which were fire  calls, four were rescue calls. The total man  hours expended by volunteers during those  operations was in excess of,400, although  emergency operations consumed only a small  percentage of the more than 4000 men hours  expended by volunteers to maintain a well  trained and efficient fire dept., in addition the  volunteer members of the emergency telephone answering service have spent many  hours handling more than 130 calls placed as  well as helping to improve the present fire  alerting and call-out system. As a result of  thoir suggestions new call-out boards are now  being  prepared,  the number of  call-out  members has been increased and regular  meetings between fire chiefs and members  are now being held to discuss problem Ureas.  The training program during the past  years has been oriented toward obtaining  speed and efficiency in basic fire fighting  operations, while emphnsizing at the same  time the Firemen's personal safety. In order  to insure a continuing program ln this regard,  a set of basic drills and prnctlces has begun.  Formulation under the direction of Bob  'Lnmont  and  Bill   Bomford   and   Driver  Training nnd Education under tho direction of  Uxrry Curtiss. It Is hoped that such a Joint  program   will   enable   some   degree   of  uniformity to be maintained In the basic  training of volunteers und will provide most  volunteers' witii class three drivers licence.  The executive of tho fire dept. havo also  been actively concerned with other areas,  .such as the mcclmnics of the mutual aid  agreement   which   exists   between    fire  departments on the Sunshine Coast;  the  implications of the fire prevention by-law  which wns recently proposed by the Sunshine  Coast Regional District, and tho co-ordination  of changes In the areas. The fire fighting  capabilities of the department are constantly  being   examined   with   a   view   towards  Doris Edwardson 8$3-2308  upgrading fire protection in this district.  Specifically during the past year proposals  haye .been brought before the board of  trustees and Subsequently adopted for  securing an 840 G.P.M. pumper in the Garden  Bay area, as well as for renovating the 1940  Ford pumper currently located in Madeira  Park, and for providing volunteer firemen  with a comprehensive insurance and  protection plan.  In closing I would like to thank the trustees  for their spirit of co-operation and realistic  approach to fire Fighting shown during the  past year and also publicly thank Bill  Bomford for his many contributions to our  fire dept.  Bill has served this dept. as a volunteer for  the better half of the past four years. He has  assumed the duties of chief and training officer, been instrumental in shaping and  directing the dept. and in my opinion, his  performance has shown him to be the most  competent member of our fire dept. and his  impending departure will leave a pair of  boots that will be very difficult to fill.  HEALTH CENTRE  The Pender Harbour and District Health  Centre society Annual meeting was held in  the PH Community Hall on Sunday, April 25,  1976 at 2 p.m. President Jim Tyner reported  they are making good progress with the  clinic. There were delays in construction  caused by the government wanting minor  changes ih the design and also from late  delivery of materials.  The clinic will be equipped and in  operation by July 1st, 1976. The directors  have been interviewing numerous doctors, in .  order to provide the community with a first  class physician. A nurse practicioner will be  there until a doctor is available and will be  a valued asset.  A dentist, 25 years of age and from Vancouver will equip the1 clinic with dental  equipment at the cost of $50,000.00 as the  government will not do it. He will have a five  year contract and there will be an independent fee for service. The government  pays the cost of the doctor and nurse practitioner. The doctor will be on a six month  probationary period and if satisfactory will  enter into a contract. There will be a direct  line to the emergency room in which minor  operations may also be done, and a 24 hour  emergency service. An ambulance will be  stationed at the clinic.  Jim Tyner expressed his thanks to Alan  Walker, chairman of the building committee,  to John Duncan for maintainance and also to  Doreen Lee Chairman of the ways ahd  means committee who has done a tremendous amount of fund raising, also to Billy  Griffith who has done an excellent job. He  said "They are devoted to their jobs and are  exceptional in every way".  A vote of thanks was given Mr. Tyner from  the membership. It was agreed that the three  -nominees,' Alan Walker,<Arthur Joss and  William Griffith would stand again for a three  year term as trustees and they were elected  by acclamation.  The Senior Citizens Association of Pender  Harbour have Volunteered to do the landscaping at the clinic and will forward a letter  to the society to that effect.  MLA Don Lockstead vi^is in Victoria and  sent his regrets that he could not attend this  meeting.  LEGION BRANCH 112  Work parties are busy these days splitting  rock and getting materials ready for the  building of the Legion Cenotaph.

They hold Bingo  there every Monday night at 8 p.m. Since they  have reopened they have made donations to  the P.H. Cub Pack, 1st. P.H. Sea Scout Troop  and also to the P.H. Swim Club. They hope to  donate more to them in the near future and  also to other charities as that is where their  proceeds go.

From the pulpit  ���by Pastor Gerry Foster,  What primarily is the Christian life? It is  not just a philosophy, it is not just a point of  view, it is not just a teaching that we take up  and try to put into practise. It is all that, but it  is something infinitely more. The very  essence of the Christian life, according to the  New Testament teaching, is that it is a  mighty power that enters us. John Wesley's  favourite definition of a Christian was ��� 'the  life of God in the souls of men'.  The Christian is not just a good, decent,  moral man; the life of God has entered into  him. The person who becomes a Christian  receives an energy and life within him and it  is that that makes him peculiarly and  specifically Christian. Yes, the life of God in  the souls of men,,which just happens to be the  greatest need of our world right now.  Many are interested in astrology  (horoscopes), fortune-telling and Ouija.  boards today. Whenever a psychic is a guest  on an open line program the phone board is  jammed with calls. Thousands are reaching  out for the supernatural but unfortunately  their search is in the area of 'evil super-  naturalism'. Maybe you are one of those who  wants a supernatural experience. Could I  suggest you cry out to the risen Christ who is  the way;'the truth and theTife'. When He enters your life there is an energy, a power, a  life which will operate in you in a practical,  moment-by-momerit experience.  Are you part of the  human race or just  a spectator? __  PDmiupsLTion  Htnrift. In yotir hrnii ymi Know li> HkIi��.

The Sechelt Peninsula Road and Gun Club  president George Flay and Bob Janis called  on Gladdy Batchelor last week. The reason  for their visit was to present to her a beautiful'  gavel on a stand printed with Harry Bat- .  chelor, President, 1961, 1962, 1964, 1966 and  1972. Gladdy was thrilled to receive this  tribute to her late husband who worked so  devotedly for the Rod and Gun and the  community.  A few random notes on Bill Coffey's recent  trip around the world.  Mode of travel was on the P. & O. Liner  Canberra, with 1,800 passengers, good accommodation, delightful people but too large  a vessel.  Chummed with a- fellow from Seoul, a  Philippine Hindu who was excellent company.  Hong Kong for four days, most reasonable  for shopping. Here they are taking earth from  the mountain to spread out and make the city  even bigger. At Singapore the ship docked at  a wharf 7 miles out of the city making it awkward for sight seeing. Very strictly ruled  here, streets are spotless, houses must be  painted every year, if a house is demolished  another must rise in its place. Two children  only allowed in each family. Apparent lack of  unemployment or poverty, setting a good  example for living.  Ceylon on the other hand, has slipped since  they received their independence, so many  shacks and much untidiness.  Mombassa Kenya, the weather very  humid, the populace very cool towards white  visitors.  Durban a tour of the Zulu Reserve, Zulu  dancers came aboard to perform for the  travellers. However they were not as enjoyable as the Dakar dancers from West  Africa.  Capetown, BUI toured all over, as he did in  many of the places the Canberra stopped at.  Arrived in Lisbon, Portugal*prior to the  election of a new head of state. Many  placards all over, with hammer and cycle in  great numbers. Much interest.and full of  thieves, or else they were preying on Hie  tourists, quite a few of the passengers lost  their wallets.  Three days in London staying in the heart  of the theatre district and seeing all the  famous sites, Tower of London, etc. ,  Flight from England was long and tiring,  not enough room for leg stretching. Mr.  Coffey thought it wise to stop at Toronto to  recuperate and see his sister. Well this is not  as simple as it sounds. He did manage to get a  wagon for two of his bags while he tried to  find out the procedure. Sent upstairs, he left  this baggage but still packing a small but  heavy caserne was told to go from one place to:i  another with each one telling.him it would  cost more money if he was to lay over.  Finally he hit the jackpot, a man named  Mike solved his problem. First, he could stop  PEGGY CONNOR 885-9347  off for a.whole year at no extra cost, then  when he found out where he wanted to go, he  explained how to get there, went down and got  his baggage putting it in a safe place to stay  until his flight home. Took him right to the  bus stop telling the bus driver to look after  him.  A young lady sitting behind the bus driver  took over and ended up taking Bill to her  husband because he would be driving right  near his destination. Not only did he deposit  him at his sister's door but waited to make  sure someone was home.  A week later Bill's flight home took 4 and  one half hours in a plane with more leg room.  Needless to say letters went from here telling,  the airline company of the courtesy shown to  him by their staff. The young lady was an  airline stewardess off duty.  ��� I. i A  ��***.**���**'***.��* ���. * ��� * \  A reminder to members and friends of  Pender Harbour Auxiliary to St. Mary's  Hospital that we are holding our annual  Friendship Tea on Wednesday, May 12 at  1:30.

The price tage on the mountain  these creations and, they could take   goat is $175.  him from 30 minutes to two hours to  saw carver turns  By DON MORBERG  Allan Colp is following in his brother's  saw marks.  Colp, from LeDuc, Alberta, is a carver  who uses a chainsaw to form blocks of  wood into bears, mountain sheep, beavers,  totem poles and a number of other items in  his repertoire.  In Sechelt last week, Colp was  demonstrating his technique and selling  his carvings.  UTve been doing this for six years,"  Colp said, "My brother Don started me in  it. Now I do the road shows and Don stays,  home to do the specialty carving. In the  beginning I was just fooling around with  it."  Colp's 'fooling around' has taken him  and his chainsaws all over North America.  He uses four basic chainsaws Jn his  work. They are supplied by a chain saw  company who sponsors Colp and his show.  They also make arrangements for him  when he Is on the road, setting up  bookings, usually to coincide wiUi their  promotions.  This week Colp will take his chain saw  carving on the Jean Cannon television  show on Channel 8 ln Vancouver.  "It takes me about half an hour to two  hours to do a sculpture," ho said  smoothing off the side of a bear, "I've had  a good time here ln Sechelt; things nro  selling well and I'm getting a lot of people  coming by to watch. I've sold three major  items here so far (two days) including a  mountain sheep.  With a $175 prize tag on the mountain  sheep, that makes it a good day.  You could buy a three foot high gold  panner for $250, prices range downward  from there;  "The most popular item has to be  bears," he said. "When I was in Powell  River last week I must have sold 30 bears.-  Bears are great. They're easy to do and  quick to do. That's why, I don't charge  much for them."  One can expect to pay about $45 for  Colp's biggest bear, standing about three  feet high. Exact pricing depends on the  individual finished product and the type of  wood used.  Coif prefers working in cedar and alder  and works with cottonwood when he can  get lt. Wood is* usually picked up on  beaches or supplied by the,sponsor on  organized tours.  He remembers once when he was  putting on a carving demonstration in  Nashville. "One man In the audience  watched for about half an hour, watched  from all angles while I wns carving. After  I wus finished, he wenved up to me and  said, 'You never carved, that with no  chainsaw.' Even though he had Just  watched me do it, there wns no wny I could  convince him I did."  Powell River municipal council intends to  lodge an official protest with the Air Transport Commission over the granting of a  licence to Tyee Airways to fly a scheduled  -service from Vancouver to Powell River with  a mandatory stop at Sechelt.  The following is a report carried in the  Powell River Town Crier about the dispute.  Council may withdraw the protest later  depending on the outcome of a closed meeting  between council members and representatives of Tyee Airways, arranged for  Monday, May 3, at 8 p.m.  Aid. Clarence Dalzell, airport and transportation committee chairman, was critical  of the lack of communication initiated by  Tyee with the municipality on the airline's  intention to provide air service from Vancouver to Powell.River.  Speaking to council following Monday's  regular meeting, Al Campbell, president of  Tyee Airways, explained that 250 supporting  letters were received, though only five or  eight were obtained from the Powell River  area. He emphatically stated that his company had correspondence with the  municipality on its plans for a wheeled, air  service from Vancouver to Powell River.  Tyee Airways' contact with the municipality  seemed to be with the former chairman of the  airport committee, ex-Aid; Colin Palmer.  Aid. Dalzell said he was upset over Tyee's  lack of consultation with the municipality  CHAINSAW CARVER Allan Colp was in   travels North America making and  Sechelt last week demonstrating his   selling his work,  technique and selling his carvings.

He mentioned his committee's efforts to  support AirWest Airlines' application to  provide a supplementary service from Powell;  River to Vancouver via Comox. The transportation committee chairman stated that  AirWest wanted to work with the  municipality to help upgrade the municipal  airport, including the proposal to have night  lighting installed eventually.  Dalzell stated that Pacific Western  Airlines, the company holding the franchise  for a scheduled daily air service from Powell  River to Vancouver has not indicated it would  help the municipality to improve the airport  facility.   -  Tyee' Airway's President Campbell  remarked that "we're the goat in the middle"  as he added that it appeared the municipality  was trying "to get at PWA".  However, Aid. Dalzell categorically  denied the airport committee had "any axe to  grind with PWA".  The petition of protest to be filed against  Tyee Airways' extended air service cited  these points:'  ��� Powell River municipal council have  not been consulted nor notified in any way on  the granting of this license. The people of the  municipality-will be expected to supply 75 per  cent of the passengers without having any  choice in airline or plane.  ��� The municipality operates the airport  and have just spent considerable money on  renovating it and making more passenger  space which we'cannot and do not intend to  limit again. Tyee Airways will now be coming  to us to obtain office space which we do not  have and cannot make in the terminal.  ��� The aircraft they propose to use is a  nine passenger, islander wheeled plane. This  plane is far too small for this area) but again  they have made no attempt to ascertain the  needs or wishes of the people of this area.  ~ Tyee Airways do not have a certificate  for night flying or, more important, they do  not have a certificate for instrument flight  operations. We do not have lights for night  flying at present; however, we are working in  co-operation with AirWest in an endeavour to  obtain night lighting.  ��� The provision of supplemental service  between Powell River and Vancouver must  be granted to a carrier with IFR certification  as the people of Powell River should not be  required to submit to a lesser quality or style  of operation by a carrier than that presently  offered by Pacific Western Airlines to Powell  River. If the granting of the license to Tyee  Airways is allowed to stand, the attainment of  our goals and maintenance of service to a  standard at least to what is present will be  jeopardized.  The municipality will ask for a stay to be(  instituted to prevent commencement of  operations by Tyee Airways carrying people  between Powell River and Vancouver pending a public hearing on air applications  concerning air service between Powell River  and Vancouver which have occured in the  past year.  mhiilaiice in  ladeira Park  before move  Health minister Bob McClelland has told  the regional board the Emergency Health  Services  Commission  will  endeavour  to  supply an ambulance unit from Halfmoon .  Bay to Sechelt.  He said the director of ambulance services  will be contacting Jim Tyner, chairman of the  Pender Harbour and district health society to  arrange the induction of an ambulance when  a vehicle becomes available.  The regional board had written to McClelland last month askingtbat the Halfmoon  Bay unit not be moved to Sechelt before  Madeira Park had an ambulance.  Fish have neither eyelids or ears.

The flist regional planners report by  Adrian Stott, Regional Planner, said a  reduction In applications for subdivisions and  crown lenses Is noticeable over last year.  Stott said figures for last year are not  avallablo for comparison but there has been a  noticeable drop lit activity which ho attributed to Inflation.  Six applications were received in March  for subdivisions. IjuhI area totals 10.1 hectare.*! nnd number of added lots is 38. There  wero two applications for crown land leases  and four for water leases covering , 17.2  hectares. Number of added lota are one for  land and four for water leases.  Three applications for subdivisions  totalling six hectares were approved.  Number of lots added was eight with an  average processing time of 14 months. The  processing time shows the total tlmo from  first application to the Regional District to  final approval of^tho application Including  time spent passing through all governmental  departments concerned.  Also included In the planner's report were  plans for Roberts Creek nnd Gibsons Vicinity  studies. Ix>cal planning committees will be  nwiking policy decisions on tlicse areas.

"Code 99, the hospital exercise is,  suspended," came over the hospital's  intercpme just as the second ambulance  with the disaster victims had arrived.  Doctors and nurses came running from all  parts of the hospital to aid the man suffering a cardiac arrest in the intensive  care unit.  Twenty minutes later, the intercom  announced "the exercise may resume."  That incident appeared to be the only  hitch in Thursday's exercise to test St.  Mary's Hospital hospital disaster plan.  The exercise began with phone call at  10 a.m. to the Sechelt RCMP detachment.  ENINSULA  VOLUNTEERS  ARE  TAGGED  with    Art McPhee gives everyone their last  their Injuries and program co-ordinator    briefing before the exercise begins.  FIRST RCMP officer on the crash scene   a hysterical girl,  four minutes after the alert call, calms  A bus' had run off Highway 101 at Hall  Road in Roberts Creek and 20 people were  suffering with injuries that varied in  severity. All passengers had got out of the  bus and they were laying on the side of the  road. "Will you send someone to help?"  Earlier that morning, Art McPhee, the  local emergency program co-ordinator  and the person who organized the exer- ���  cise, brought his 25 volunteers together at  the Roberts Creek Hall for their briefing  and injuries. Most volunteers were from .  the area's Sea Cadet Unit.  McPhee explained the exercise to  them. It was to test the Hospital's disaster  plan which had been written in 1972 and  then re-written in 1974. The idea was to  find the weak points in the >lan so that it  could be corrected and made more  operational. The exercise would also give  the RCMP, ambulance people and  whatever other agencies got' involved an  idea of where to fix the weak points in their  own procedures.  In this area, the hospital declares an  emergency if it has to admit more than 10 -  people at once It means that some less  critical patients in the hospital might have  to moved to make room for the disaster  victims.  Only two people at the hospital knew i  when the exercise would be deployed,  they were hospital's administrator and  secretary and they would have control of  the switchboard so that if there was a real  emergency, the exercise could be called  off. The unit chiefs at the ambulance  stations knew, the drivers didn't. The  heads at the Gibsons and Sechelt RCMP  detachments also knew.  A doctor at the hospital had drawn up a  list of 20 injuries that could be expected in  a serious bus accident. The injuries were  written on tags and placed around the  victims wrists at the community hall.  There were two people beyond help, four  were so seriously hurtythat they would  require surgery, five were serious but  could be handled outside an operating  room and the rest had various limb injuries. . \  McPhee said he had wanted to make  the exercise more difficult but it was the  first time an emergency plan had peep.  tested on the Sunshine Coast, so the  number of victims had been kept to only 20  and the ketchup and other injure makeup  had been left at home. The tags would  have to tell the story to the hospital ���  bandages etc. would be used on them. To  some degree he allowed the victims to pick  their own injury.  He told them how the crucial part of the  test was the 'triage.' This is the term given  to task of sorting out which injured person  should go where in the hospital.  The triage doctor must do preliminary  examination of victims as they are  ���unloaded from the ambulances :at, the-  hospital. On his instructions the victims  are sent to various parts of the hospital.  The idea is not to overcrowd any one  facility.  In a real emergency the triage doctor  would be the first most senior doctor that  is available in the hospital. Because it is  perhaps the single most important position  in dealing with disaster victims, the triage  doctor is gradually switched until the most  senior doctor is at the post. All victims  well-being inside the hospital depends on  him - her.  McPhee and his five volunteer umpires, who were to make note of the  mornings activities, scattered the victims  outside the hall just prior to the 'phone  call.' One victim was hidden in the bushes  to see if authorities would remember to  do a head count.  When the call went/nto the RCMP, the  hospital and ambulance services were  notified. At the hospital 10 regular patients  who were almost ready to be discharged  were moved to the physiotherapy unit in  the hospital's basement for holding.  The first RCMP constable oh the accident took charge of the operation. He  arrived four minutes after the call was  placed.  The police did a preliminary check for  the most seriously injured. An hysterical  girl was calmed. Victims were made as  comfortable as possible..  The second police cruiser arrived at  10:08 a.m. and the third 10:09. One con-  , stable directed traffic on the highway.  At 10:13 the first ambulance screemed  to the scene. It came from Gibsons.  Police had decided volunteer firemen  could be of assistance and the Roberts  Fire Department alarm was sounded at  10:09. The first fireman arrived at 10:12.  The ambulance drivers, whose job it is  to stabilize patients until they reach the  hospital, had the first victims on their way  to the waiting nurses and doctors at 10:36.  The second and third ambulance, which  had to travel from Halfmoon Bay, were on  the scene at 10:33 and departed for the  hospital at approximately 10:45.  At one point during the 45 minutes  victims were removed to hospital, RCMP  commandeered a private citizen's van to  transport patients. The van wasn't used  but in a real emergency the RCMP has the  power to recruit vehicles it deems '  necessary to help with an evacuation.  The first doctor arrived on the scene at  10:38.  The ambulance which left first was  back to pick up the remaining patients at  11:01. The victim that was hidden in the  bushes had been found-  Except for the real emergency at the  hospital, the exercise seemed to run  smoothly.  At about 10:20 hospital staff called the  hospital auxiliary. By the time the last  ambulance had arrived there were at least  10 members of the ladies auxiliary at the  hospital, ready to look after relatives of  the victims and to fill in where ever they  were needed. In any disaster, relatives  coming to see their loved ones are a  problem that the hospital must cope with.  The exercise was declared ended just  after 12 a.m.;  Although the event seemed to have run  smoothly, an inquest will be held this week  to do a critique on the Disaster Plan. All  parties involved will present their views  on .how th^ system for handling  large emergencies can be unproved. The  Sechelt RCMP rnade a video tape of the  whole exercise. Four cameras were  placed in the critical locations for the  morning's events. A half-hour edited  version of the exercise will also be shown  at the inquest.  Dr. Eric Paetkau, a hospital surgeon  and the person who made up the list of  injuries, said after the exercise that he felt  everything had gone smoothly. He said  "we could obviously handle 20 victims but  the story might have been different had  there been 40 victims."  He also said the deployment of the  "-Disaster Plan was necessary once a year  for St. Mary's to keep its Canadian  Medical Association accreditation. He  said only about 25 per cent of similar sized  hospitals in Canada have accreditation.  Summing up the day's events McPhee  said he thought the exercise had gone  better than he had expected. He hoped a  lesson or two had been learned.  ���ML*     .

Page C-4    The Peninsula Times     Wednesday, May 5,1976  On Home-Built Plywood Furniture  It's the Finish That Counts  Quite often it is the finish on furniture- or cabinets that gives them that  professional look or sets them apart as  home-built. A good finish, whether  paint, stain or lacquer, is important and ���  ' can be achieved quite easily with a little  care and attention to detail.  There is very little surface preparation to be done when you ate finishing  plywood furniture���your own or items  you have purchased at an unpainted  furniture store. First, make sure that  the surface is thoroughly clean and that  any blemishes, are filled with a wood  filler and.sanded smooth. Any good  putty will do if you are going to paint  over it. However, if'the plywood is  going to be stained or rubbed down  with paint tint to show the grain, water-  soluble or oil-soluble putty compounds  must be used. (Some acetone-based '  putties seal the wood grain so that the  wood cannot absorb stain and this  leaves a light unstained area on the finished job.)  Whenever possible, fill the plywood  edge grain before painting. Always use  . fine sandpaper and sand with the grain,  not across it. Knots arfd pitch streaks  should be spot-primed with a sealer  before you start Don't paint over dust  or spots of oil or glue for it will spoil  that smooth finish you are aiming for.  Washable paints or enamels are the  - best choice for- surfaces that will  require frequent cleaning. A high-gloss  enamel is probably the easiest to keep  clean and is also very fashionable.  Always use good quality materials and  follow the manufacturer's instructions.  Use of an undercoat gives a better final  surface and is strongly recommended.  Brush on the undercoat first and then  fcpply a second coat of undercoat tinted  to the shade of the finish coat For a'  , gloss finish, mix the second coat from  equal parts of flat undercoat and gloss  enamel. Finally, apply a top coat as it  comes from the can. You can eliminate  the second undercoat if you wish, but it  does give a better appearance, as will a  light sanding between coats.  Natural' finishes are very popular  and attractive, for they let the wood  grain show' through, adding appeal to  the furniture. For an easy, inexpensive  blonde finish, first apply a coat of interior white undercoat thinned so the  grain pattern shows through. Tint if  colour is desired. Then apply- clear  shellac, flat varnish or lacquer.  Inexpensive and good looking one-  coat stain waxes, art also -available in  various colours and are very easy to  work with. If you want a dark stain, to  lessen the impact of the grain contrast,  first apply a coat of clear resin sealer.  Edges can be finished quickly and easily with the ready-made edge strips  available at most lumber dealers.  To obtain a luxurious light stain'  glaze, apply a white undercoat thinned  with equal parts of turpentine or paint  thinner. Then wire or dry-brush for -  more grain show-through, and apply  one coat of thinned white shellac or  clear resin sealer. If you want colour,  apply an interior undercoat or enamel  thinned as in step one. Wipe or dry  brush to the proper colour tone," and  apply one coat of flat varnish. When  dry, rub it down with steel wool for  added luster.  Remember that practice makes perfect and it might be wise to experiment  on a leftover piece of plywood before  you start. Another thing to keep in  mind is that these finishing instructions  are only for plywood that will be used  inside the house. Paint is never recommended as an exterior finish for plywood because the surface will check  when exposed to changing moisture  conditions. A heavy bodied stain is the  best choice for outdoor situations.  r  ���^-i  LOGGING ROADS are a favorite place Logging Road last week. Conservation  for illegally dumping garbage.

With the possible exception of overpopulation, the greatest clanger this old world  faces is depletion of the resources of energy.  The average John Citizen with the average  garden can do quite a bit with Nature's help to  make his own situation better, and of course  the combined, efforts of everybody would  mean a real contribution to the solution of the X  problem.  What we are talking about is keeping the -,  demand for artificial heat down and the  provision of air conditioning, without having  to pay for them in power consumed. The .  answers all lie in the growing of green things '"  that are here for our benefit if we know how to ;  use them.  Heat conservation, in addition to the.  making use of good insulation in our  buildings, can be augmented by the intelligent use of windbreaks of the proper  variety put in the proper places. In this part  of the world cold weather winds come from  the north and west. So there is the place to  put the break. Plant a row of trees or, better  still if there is room, a double or even a triple  row as far from.the house as it practical but  not more than 120 feet away. Ideally, a tree.'  break should be one and.a half times the-  height of the house and located at a distance  of four times their height. Can't be done on a  60 foot lot admittedly, but the idea is there to  examine and adjust to conditions. Incidentally, a tree is a far better break than a  solid wall ��� it diffuses the currents of air  instead of creating a very undesirable turbulence on the leeward side.  Vines and ivy, grown up a trellis attached  to, but some inches away from, an exposed  cold wall will provide benefit from the insulating effect of the stems and the deflecting  of the cold wind by the leaves. Grown on the  sunny side, again on a trellis a few inches  from the wall���deciduous vines have a good  cooling air condition effect.  Everyone of course has experienced the  blessed shade of a tree in hot weather, and  where it is possible these living perpetual  factories of materials for the physical health  and comfort of the human race should be  given the place of honour in the garden.  So there you have it. Help the human race  and contribute to your own comfort by using  Nature's own warming and cooling devices,  all for free plus the added pleasures of beauty  and a fascinating occupation.  There is yet another facet to this subject  and that is the erosion by rain of steep banks  and awkward garden by reason of the natural  difficulty of cultivating them.  Rain plays havoc with unprotected soil,  every drop causing a miniature explosion  that scatters the fine particles of topsoil far  and wide besides carrying them away in the  little rivulets that run down the slope.  Eventually nothing is left to grow anything in.  The answer to this is ground cover that,  once planted, never needs renewal and  spreads naturally. From personal experience  periwinkle is ideal but there are many others  that any nurseryman will be glad to tell you  about. Again you will get additional climatic  benefits with the green oxygen-expiring  leaves offering free air conditioning, while  they soak up the carbon and sulphur dioxides  that can, in excess, harm us. The word is,  give the world a chance by letting our Mother  do her job ��� nothing good ever came out of a  blacktopped parking lot.  Now is the time to look at the planting of  these efficient household appliances ��� no  monthly bills either.

In  this latest offering 'Man of the East', he again  portrays what seems to be some sort of anti-  hero. As a man from England who moves to  , the west hi the United States when the west  was wild, he is the supreme dude. Everything  he does turns out wrong. When he sets out to  rescue the girl, it is really he who needs, to be  rescued. When he challenges the bad guys to  a fight, the bad guys win. Rated 'General', it  should prove entertaining for the whole  family.  Opening Sunday is a restricted film with a  not-so-wide audience appeal. "The Rocky  Horror Picture Show' is an outrageous  assemblage co-produced by rock music's  offbeat Lou Adler. Running through the story  is the sexual confusion of two middle  American 'Ike' Age kids caught in the  complications of the decadent morality of the  seventies, represented in the person of the  mad 'doctor' Frank N. Furter, a transvestite  from the planet Transexual. Based on the  highly successful award-winning stage play,  it might be aptly called a story of the sam-  i pling of forbidden fruits.  Also corning very soon is the much talked  about 'Alice Doesn't Live Here Anymore',  starring Ellen Burstyn and Kris Kristof-  ferson.  In 1896, George Washington Carmack, an  American prospector in the Yukon, and his  two Indian partners Skookum Jim and Tagish  Charlie sampled a panful of gravel at  Eldorado creek that was rated about 4000 per  cent higher than what was considered a good  prospect. Their discovery brought scores of  miners to the Klondike and the gold rush was  underway.  avBn  The fact that the fire alarm .system at  Elphinstone has still got a mind of its own has  prompted the school board to put pressure on  the school's construction managers and the  alarm manufacturing company to either fix  or replace the system.

Gibsons Radio Cabs and Peninsula Taxi  Limited are asking for a 20 cent increase in  the mileage charge which would raise the  fare f rpm 70 cents to 90 cents; waiting time to  bo 20 cents per minute Instead of 12 cents;  minimum fair raised to $1 Instead of 75 cents  and a changeover to meters.

Tho last Increase wns approved  August 15, 1974, they said.  Council Is writing the regional district to  find out what the last fare Increases for  regional taxis were.  Alderman Stu Metcalfe questioned the  Increase with regard to price and wage  control guidelines.  The proposal was put over to the next  meeting.  26 board meeting that the fire alarm, after  months of trying to fix it, was still going off at  random.  Board secretary-treasurer Roy Mills said  that the alarm goes off so often that students  no longer pay attention to it. "It defeats the  whole point of having an alarm system."  He said an electrical contractor has been  checking the system's circuits for some time  and that he fs having problems finding  anything wrong, yet the alarm bells still ring  at the wrong time.  On top of the bells going off, he said system  automatically closes somo doors and ventilation dampers.  Besides applying all the pressure it can to  have the malfunctions corrected, the board  instructed the management committee to  make sure there is contingency plan to have  the school alerted ln case of a real fire.

Stanley Joe, a soccer coach for the Sechelt  Pegasus, said Sunday he has taken the liberty  of attempting to get together anyone who may  be interested in seeing such an association get  off the ground.  , He said a Soccer Association on the  Sunshine Coast would be to the area's advantage. "Teams would not have to travel to  Vancouver and other areas, saving a lot of  time and money."  To make the association a success he  thinks there should be six teams on the  ��� Peninsula to make a good competitive league.  "With six teams in the league, it would  avoid teams having to play the same team  every second week, if all play each Sunday."  Joe said at the moment the Peninsula  I for soccer  Peninsula  the association if he can get a reasonable  amount of response from the community.

He said he will call a meeting to discuss  Squaringly yours  BY MAURICE HEMSTREET  And now, stay reading for the square  dance news of the past couple of weeks and  what is coming in the future.  Last April 23, with a song in my heart and  a rusty voice, I managed to get through the  evening. Someone said, boy, that was a great  nite of square dancing, so I got to thinking  (which is a new experience for me) maybe I  was calling at the wrong hall. Oh, well,  everyone knows that square dancing is great  fun, but it's surprising just how many people  haven't tried this way of life. It is cheaper  than any other I know of.  At this point I have a story for you. A  bartender had just unlocked his premises for  the day's business when a pink elephant and a  purple rhinoceros mooched up to the bar,  "I'm sorry* boys" said the bartender. "He  hasn't come in yet."  Last Friday night, caller Harry Robertson  was really in top form as three sets managed  to wind their way through the various calls  and figures that he tossed out onto the floor. I  don't think that any of the three sets were  doing the same thing, but if there was a way  to put all the laughter into containers and sell  them for a nickel a can, we would all be rich,  in other words, a good time was had by all.  One of the ten commandments of square  dancing is, Thou shall not participate in  alcoholic beverages before or during square  dancing. By they way, have you ever tasted  eggnog? Jjt's like drinking milk from a  'smashed' cow.  Back to square dancing, this is May first  and today, somewhere In North Vancouver, I  think just off the upper levels and down two  blocks on Lonsdale, there has to be a very  large recreation hall because that's where  this year's square dance 'Teen Festival' is  being held nnd that's where you would find  our caller Harry Robertson ���, helping to  judge this large assembly of square dance  teenagers.  There are 73 teenage callers and  caller has a set of square dancers so that  sets with eight dancers to a set plus the  callers. Let's see, that would make about G57  teenage square dancers on tho move, when 1  asked Harry how he felt his ,only comment  was, here come the Judge.  More on this competition next week; that is  if Harry gets tack, but for now, where nro all  the teenagers on the Sunshine Coast? They  could really be having a lot of fun with no  headaches, speeding tickets or black eyes  from the odd weekly scrimmages. It Is a point  to ponder, but remember kids, it's up to you, I  am always here If you want to learn square  dancing, call 8115-3359, there Is nn old saying  tliat experience is the stuff that when you  finally get enough of, you arc too old to  qualify for the job.

The policy was adopted April 26 and it  becomes, effective, within certain restrictions, May 1.  The only restriction placed on viewing the  files is that it must be'done under supervision.  The board's management committee  report said that restriction was made to  ensure nothing is added or subtracted from  the personnel files.  Appointments must be made by teachers  to see their files that are kept in school board  offices, the report said.  The Sechelt Teachers' Association had  first requested these files be opened up to  teachers last Fall. At first the board had  objected.      , .  Board secretary-treasurer Rov Mills said  principals at the various schools will set their  own policy on how and when teachers will be  allowed to view fUes kept at the schools.  Commercial wind generating units  presently available have been found unsuitable for provision of electrical energy in  areas served by B.C. Hydro.  In 1975, Hydro undertook a pilot program  involving two-to-three kilowatt wind-driven  power plants to be installed at Masset on the  Queen Charlotte, Islands and on Carson  Mountain, near Clinton.  While useful experience was gained from  the study these particular installations were  found to be highly vulnerable to storms  (Masset) and vandalism (Carson Mountain),  unreliable, and economically infeasible when,  compared with' other forms of power  generation.  A comparison on a cost-per-customer  basis between the diesel power system at  Ahousat, a small community on Flores Island  north of Tofino, and the windpower costs  obtained from Hydro's "experimental  program indicated that wind generation  would not be competitive unless diesel fuel  costs rose 30 tunes or more from their 1975  level.  However, Hydro's research and  development group will maintain close  liaison with groups carrying out significant  research into wind generators, including the  National Research Council of Canada ahd its  counterpart in Australia, to keep abreast of  new developments in this field.  In addition, Hydro has arranged with  retired architect Peter Kaffka to install  energy-measuring instruments at Worlcombe  Island in Howe Sound, where Mr. Kaffka has  a windmill supplying his home with power..  Hydro also will explore the possibility of  continuing the operation of the Masset installation on a non-commercial basis to obtain additional information.  lo rerouting  Gibsons council have expressed disappointment over news that a Gibsons highway  re-routing would not be included in this year's  budget.  MLA Don \ Lockstead in a letter to the  Village Council of Gibsons said in spite of  committments made to him by the former  minister, the re-routing has not been included  in the budget.  Alderman Jim Metzler said the village is  very sorry to hear the project wasn't in the  budget and thanked Lockstead for his efforts  in pushing, for the re-routing.  Metzler urged Lockstead to "keep the  pressure on the government on our behalf."  Once the date for the referendum, which  will decide the fate of the Sechelt sewer  system, has been determined; village council  will commence a letter writing campaign to  sell the sewer concept to residents living  inside the area specified for sewers.  The first letter which will, be mailed out  when the vote date is known says "we  strongly recommend the sewer plan and  solicit your'approval."  The letter says that in the other two letters  "we will attempt to bring you all the relevant  facts that convinced the Council that the  proposal was timely ahd within financial  reach of all."  It goes on to say "it scarcely needs to be  said the clearly indicated direction that  senior governments are taking is leading to  the disallowance of septic tank use in urban  areas and the mandatory installation of  sewers."  . It is hoped the referendum will be held  near May 30. ' .  By LAURIE BEEMAN  Last Thursday afternoon, Mr. Forst,  student counsellor ' at Elphinstone, accompanied 50 students to the North Shore  Careers Exposition at Capilano College in  North Vancouver. The Career Fair was offered to several schools all over Vancouver on.  April 27, 28 and 29th.  . The fair was displayed for students who  have an outlook towards future careers after  high school. Some exhibitors that were  present were: Agriculture Sciences (UBC),  B.C. Fish and Wildlife Branch, B.C. Institute  of Technology, Parks Branch, Canada  Manpower, the Church, Moler School of  Hairdressing. In all, about 55 exhibitors for  future career and interests were displayed  for the students.  In a room of modern computers, there was  a television screen that depicted a car race  with other opponents. D.J. Hauka had a try in  the race with his daring ability. Unfortunately, raising his m.p.h. too high, his  car crashed and so he lost the game. The  computer decided to give D.J. a second  chance at the game because he was such a  good sport.  The fair was.commercialized in offering  or careers  courses at several universities and Colleges  such as; UBC, Vancouver Vocational Institute and Douglas College, but it roused  much interest in the students that went to the  college. Hopefully, these trips will encourage  students to seriously consider a futurecareer.  The Community Rec. 12 Class put on a hot  dog sale last Tuesday during lunch hour to  support their various outing trips during the  year.  Girls baseball is getting underway for  Gibsons and Sechelt teams. Sam Casey and  Doug Kammerle are coaching the Sechelt  team and Miss Wilson, Elphie P.E. teacher, is  coaching the Gibsons team.

All  welcome.  WEDNESDAY EVENING TESTIMONY  7:30 p.m.  Phone 885-3157 or 886-7882.  Please don't eat the mold  Have you ever looked at a piece of cheddar  cheese with mold on it and thought, "It's just  a little mold���it won't hurt me." If you have,  then take note because that 'little bit of mold'  is not as harmless as you may think. A mold is  a fungus and certain types of molds can cause  serious infections involving the sinuses, eyes,  ears and the respiratory tract.  The TJ.S. Food and Drug Administration  warns that it has received reports of permanent blindness caused from molds. In  addition, as molds grow, they produce  compounds called mycotoxins which have  been shown to cause cancer in animals. (It is  not yet known if they are involved in any  human cancers.) Aflatoxins, the most important type of mycotoxins, are potent  natural poisons as well as carcinogens.  The question is then, how can we protect  ourselves against these natural toxins?  Our Canadian Food and Drug Directorate  wages a continual campaign to keep aflatoxin  contamination in Canadian products to an  absolute minimum. The federal health  department maintains a strict surveillance  over imported nuts and nut products which  are the main carriers of this mycotoxln.  Other foods that are analysed for the  presence of mycotoxins are peanut butter,  flour, baby foods, cereals, confectionery, ice  cream and other foods containing* food  ingredients thnt are susceptible to mold  contamination. So we can rest assured that  our health department Is protecting us  against the natural toxins in our processed  foods.  But lt Is up to the consumer to protect  himself against molds growing on fresh foods  found in the supermarket or produced at  home. Mold appears as a downy or furry  w,tlng known as the 'bloom'. Practically nil  ���d�� are susceptible to mold although high  moisture foods held at room temperature are  the prime candidates. These include fresh  fruits and vegetables, bakery products,  cheeses not purposely veined with mold such  ua ruquofort or bleu, and other dairy  products.  When you are buying your food, you should  make your selections carefully. It is important to know that the 'bloom' is only the  top of.the mold and where there is bloom  there arc roots. Tltsc roots grow deep, spread  throughout the food, and are not visible to tho  naked eye. So avoid foods with even a spot of  mold,  Molds enter fresh produce through nicks  or at tho stem attachment. Always check for  mold at these points. If you are going to store  your produce for a few days, try to stagger  the ripeness. That Is, buy some for Immedlnte  use and some that will not ripen for several  Mays. That way you more easily avoid the  problem of decaying and possibly moldy  fruits and vegetables.  He sure to check all breads and bakery  products which are generally packaged in  convenient dear cellophane. As pointed out  earlier, mold needs moisture to grow.  However dried foods can be moldy before the  drying process. Therefore it Is wise to  examine spices, nuts, dried l)cnns and popcorn before buying, If you do find moldy food  in Uie store, bo sure to lake il to the Mtore  manager so that unsuspectirig customers will  not be exposed to the hazards of molds.  Cheeses i such as roquefort and bleu are  processed with a "friendly" mold and  scientists have found it to be. safe. But hioldy  cheeses that are not meant to show the fungus  should be avoided. Even roquefort and bleu  cheeses with extra mold not part of the  veining are not safe.  Yogurt, cottage cheese and sour cream  can develop mold so make use of the expiratory dates on the cartons. Decide how  long it will take to finish the food and do not  buy a carton that has an earlier expiratory  date.  Once you have your food home from the  store, your safety checks should not end. It is  best to refrigerate perishable foods because  (mold growth is slowed at cool temperatures.  Bread, however, should be frozen because it  will stale at refrigerator temperatures. The  bread for immediate use can be stored in a  bread box. In hot humid weather it is  probably safer to keep the bread currently in  use in the refrigerator to avoid mold growth  even though it may stale a little faster.  (Staling Is a matter of taste and riot connected  to molding.)  Keep your refrigerator clean and dry so  that any mold or mildew will not spread.  Never sniff at moldy foods as a few sniffs  could easily trigger a respiratory infection.  When you prepare your food, always check  for sighs of mold. If you find mold growing It  Is not safe just to scrape It off or cut it out. The  roots could easily be throughout the food even  though they arc not visible. Cooking will kill  the mold but will not destroy any mycotoxln  present, so cooking is no solution. The only  safe procedure Is to throw out any food found  with mold growing on it.  Remember:  1. Choose your foods carefully. Check for  mold on fruits, vegetables, cheeses, spices,  dried beans, nuts nnd popcorn. Mako uso of  expiratory dates on cartons of dairy products.  2. Store perishables in a dry clean cool  place.  !J. If you find mold growing, throw out the  entire piece of food.  If you follow these precautions you need  never.buffer the possible consequences of  mold contamination.  If you liavo any questions on nutrition,  send them to mo at P.O. Box 11B0, Sechelt.  Don't forget a stamped return envelope.
