Flags to add colour to March ANZAC Day services and marches today (Saturday) are expected to draw big crowds because the day is not conflicting with the usual public holiday. Adding colour to the Yeppoon march this year will be two flags from the RSL's museum. As well as the usual Australian and RSL flags, members this year will carry the Navy's White Ensign and the Airforce's blue flag. Yeppoon High School students Aaron Trevis and Hilary Bolton will give addresses at the Cenotaph during the service after the march. They will be part of the school's 200-strong contingent participating in marches. Sacred Heart, Yeppoon Primary, St Ursula's and St Brendan's will also be well represented in the Yeppoon march. Emu Park State Primary School will take part in the Emu Park Anzac Day march.

Council calls for report on how to preserve trees

LIVINGSTONE Shire Council will use a Pine Rivers Shire by-law on tree preservation as a basis for a report which will be tabled at next month's meeting. The motion, which was moved by Brian Dorey and seconded by Cr Ted Smith, recommends a basic by-law for Livingstone Shire and outlines the laws and regulations the council should adopt. Cr Dorey said he would like to see some sort of preservation law adopted to protect trees "of significance and age" in the shire. Livingstone Shire chairman Cr John Bowen said the introduction of such a by-law would provide for tree preservation. Cr Barbara Wildin said she was all for tree preservation but was concerned about the misuse of the introduction of a tree-preservation law. Cr Wildin said if such a law was introduced certain groups "would be proclaiming trees to be old and of significance left, right and centre". If someone owned land with some of these trees that are "old", the person would be in the position of owning land that could not be used because of a tree-preservation law, she said. Cr Bowen said if a by-law was introduced it would be controlled solely by council and used at its discretion. Cr Wildin said if a by-law was introduced a section would outline what right property owners would retain. Cr Bowen-, in reply, said a policy would be developed that included provision for the owner's consent to be obtained before declaring a tree-preservation area.

El ABOVE: Livingstone Shire chairman Cr John Bowen turns to auctioneer Terry Molloy on Easter Saturday after addressing potential bidders at the Zilzie beachfront land auction. He announced details of the $15 million Ross Creek Marina.

Auctioneer hammers out $250,000 SIX beachfront blocks at Zilzie sold this week for about $250,000 after an on-site auction on Easter Saturday. Developer Ami Setu said he was pleased with the result. More than 300 people attended the auction organised by The Professionals, Emu Park, and Molloys Real Estate. Reef Street, Zilzie, where the blocks are located, was parked solidly with cars for the auction. The crowd assembled on block 5 for the start of the auction and heard auctioneer

Combination of old and new for RQBC bushies jubilee picnic A COMBINATION of old and new will be the theme for the Royal Queensland Bush Children's bushies jubilee picnic on Sunday, May 3. The home, in Todd Avenue, has in past years held a fete but changed this year to organise a picnic with a mixture of bygone days and the present. Hot damger, syrup, billy tea, games for children as well as the usual stalls can be enjoyed by the whole family. Central Queensland community coordinator and publicity officer Steve Connor said the Bush Children's Scheme was a charitable organisation and relied on its fundraising ventures to finance the coach scheme and four others in Queensland. Livingstone Shire chairman Cr John Bowen will officially open the picnic at noon. About 2.30pm, a team of five Shire council workers, led by Cr Bowen, will take on a Rockhampton team captained the May Ald Jim Webber in a grudge tug-of-war. Afterwards, a mixed team of Coast and Rockhampton workers will challenge media organisations to a tug-of-war. Other entertainment will include an auction and a dog-handling display by Enta Creek Prison. The home is looking for donations of items for the stalls and, if necessary, Mrs Connor will pick them up. She can be contacted on 27 6238. The Coast home is one of five in Queensland offering a service for children between 5 and 13 in need of specialist medical or behavioural treatment not available in their home towns. The first meeting to discuss the introduction of the homes was held in 1935. The following year the first homes were started. An average of 30 children stay at the Coast home each year: Children stay for an average of six weeks.


Terry Molloy read out the conditions of sale followed by an address by Livingstone Shire chairman Cr John Bowen. Cr Bowen told the crowd council was dealing with a proposal for a $15 million marina to be built at Ross Creek. He said it was a buyers' market. Bidding was slow to start. No-one wanted to make the first bid ... until one of $15,000 was shouted. Mr Molloy said he might get back to that bidder. After that, bidding started at $25,000' If) until the block was passed in at $39,000. The auction continued on the nine blocks. All blocks were passed in "subject to vendor's approval" with closing bids of $39,000; $36,000; $36,000; $37,000; $39,000; $40,000; $41,000; $41,000; and $42,000. Mr Setu said on Wednesday morning four had been sold from the auction and contracts were expected later that day on two others. He phoned on Wednesday afternoon to say the two contracts had been signed. In all, he said 11 blocks in the 44-block estate had been sold. He offered all buyers his best wishes and congratulated them on buying their blocks at realistic prices. He said none had gone to investors and he expected houses would soon be built on at least four of the beachfront blocks.

0 ABOVE: Trimaran Gypsy Queen beached and holed on Yeppoon Main Beach is readied for winching to shore on Wednesday morning. 0 PICTURE BY PAUL DEAN, SUPERSIZE PHOTOS


Trimaran holed on Yeppoon beach THE owners of a trimaran fought for several hours to secure the vessel in big seas before it beached and holed on rocks on Yeppoon Main Beach on Wednesday. The owners of the Gypsy Queen had moored off the beach on Tuesday and went ashore by dinghy to shop. Gusty winds and big seas made it impossible for the owners to return to Keppel Island where they were staying, but they went on board to secure the vessel.

About 9.30pm an anchor chair snapped and the owners used their radio to contact Yeppoon Coastguard. They put out another anchor and left the vessel. Water police went to assess the situation and later, about 4am, the Coastguard tried unsuccessfully to get a line to the vessel as it swept toward the beach in winds of up to 45 knots. Damage to the vessel, believed to be uninsured, was estimated at almost $10,000.

MRD agrees to maintain Byfield Rd THE Byfield Road will be maintained by the Main Roads Department despite the refusal of the Forestry Department to assist, Member for Broadsound Denis Hinton said this week. He said that he was pleased at the response by Main Roads Minister Russ

Go-ahead for rail overpass A $345,000 railway overpass will be built at Sleipner on the Emu Park/Rockhampton Road. Member for Broadsound Denis Hinton said Main Roads Minister Russ Hinze had given the go-ahead for construction of the overpass with a contribution of $315,000 and a further $30,000 from Queensland Railways. The overpass will replace the existing timber overbridge which had been built in 1912. Mr Hinton said the precast concrete box culvert would also be sited on an improved alignment. Main Roads day labour will carry out the construction. The $1.5 million project covering construction of the 2km of roadway, including the approaches to the overpass, would soon be announced, he said. Mr Hinton said as well as providing an improved alignment, this project would raise the existing floodway over Ellrotts Gully to provide improved flood immunity.

Hinze, who has personally assured Mr Hinton that maintenance funds for the Road would be found. This assurance was made despite the rejection of State Cabinet of special assistance and the refusal of Forestry Minister Bill Glasson to commit funds for the road from his Department. The matter was taken to State Cabinet, following a deputation from the Livingstone Shire Council led by Mr Hinton. Mr Hinton said the Byfield Road, which was carrying an enormous pine forest thinning tonnage of about 250,000 tonnes of logs over the next two years, was categorised as a 'Rural Local' road, and funds for such roads in Central Queensland were fully commited. "In addition, funds will be reduced next year because of reduced Commonwealth funding for rural local roads,"he said. Mr Hinton said that he was enormously concerned about the safety aspects because despite Mr Hinze's assurance on maintenance, "nothing is to be done to reduce the dust nuisance that is a menace to local residents and school buses with visability at times on the road, close to zero". He said it appeared a major upgrading of the road to all bitumen, and a re-classification to enable greater access to funds, appear the only solution but was difficult in the light of current availability of Main Roads funds. Watering of the road to lay dust was also an option, and he will be having discussions with the Main Roads Department in this regard.

how it looked on Easter Monday as the wreckers moved into top gear. LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

Cr Wildin deserves public's praise CR BARBARA Wildin deserves the praise and accolades from a long-suffering public for bringing to light just some of the financial disasters the Livingstone Shire Council has been involved in. Some councillors must be under the impression that they own all the rate money. The shire chairman, (Cr John Bowen) as chief executive, must shoulder the responsibility for the actions of the council. He wanted the job, and the 20 per cent of the voting public who opted for him in March 1985, must be asking "What happened to the piomise of open council meetings". Confidentiality in council is an important arid necessary aspect of council administration, but surely, the ratepayers are entitled to know how their money is being spent. When a wise decision is made, you can bet your last dollar, the news will be shouted from the roof tops. Shouldn't the paying public also be made aware when substantial sums are frittered

away, through ill-conceived planning? Are Cr Wildin's claims true? Was $178,000 paid to a consultant for a short 18 months work? Do the ratepayers now have tb pay for the _ legal costs of Mr Rowe's defence, and action brought on by a handful of disgruntled councillors. I was under the impression that these particular councillors paid the account privately as they were responsible. If they have not settled this bill, then it is their duty to do so forthwith. Otherwise, the campaign for re-election in March 1988 will be very interesting indeed. I congratulate Cr Wildin for her public duty, and assure her if the council has the audacity to impose a financial penalty for telling the truth, then she need not worry about dipping into her purse, as funds will come flooding through the post to cover any financial impositions. 0 Alan K Stevenson, Poinciana Avenue,

WITH reference to your front page article regarding Livingstone Shire Council's plan to hire more staff I am led to feel thankful for Cr Wildin's decision to breach 'committee' and reveal to us what council would conceal, in spite of declarations by a number of candidates (now councillors) that they advocated open government. How much longer will this council persist with its practice of handling business in the secrecy. of 'in committee'? Cr Wildin deserves the support of all for having sufficient courage to inform the public of council's intention to hire a town planner and an additional engineer. The dangerous experiment of using consultants instead of employing its own professionals has certainly proved to be an expensive one for council despite the fact that ex-councillor Jim Anderson was quoted in the Morning Bulletin of 9/9/86 as saying: "The council would save money because the cost of employing Mr Rowe for the rest of his working life would be greater than the payout". Council is currently in the throws of seeking government grant money for several purposes. The grants committee will riot be impressed with the latest performance of this council. Remember the candidates in 1985 who called for 'lower debts', 'lower rates', 'see

Bad case of YACA IT would seem Cr Wildin has a very bad case of YACA, YACA. — Brian Hooper, 45 Wattle Grove, Yeppoon

where expenses could be cut'. After the election we heard: 'I would close the engineering department because it is an expensive luxury the shire cannot afford'. Further quotes said: 'The shire did not need a town planner because there was enough expertise embodied in the newly elected council'. In light of the above performances this council would do well to realise that its staff, both professional and otherwise, is fare more endowed with expertise than any elected councillor is likely to be. It is a consolation that we are getting some information from Wildin the Watchdog.

IGET SERVICE WITH A SMILE BRENDAN AND PAM Williams, the new lessees of D & S Motors, on the old Rockhampton Road, Yeppoon, are looking forward to life in Yeppoon where people greet each other with a smile. "That's the sort of lifestyle we're used to," they said on the weekend after taking over D & S Motors from Dave and Sherry Turner on Good Friday. Brendan and Pam are looking forward to life at Yeppoon because they said it was similar to Taroom, their home town. Taroom, with a population of between 750 and 800, is a place where everyone knows everyone else and its normal to say hello to people when walking along the street. "That's how we've lived and already, we've found Yeppoon to be the same," Pam Williams said. Brendan and Pam are no strangers to the Capricorn Coast ... they have holidayed here ever since they were married almost 25 years ago and their sons have attended St Brendan's College. "We always said that if we ever left Taroom the only place we would move to was Yeppoon," Pam said. "We always felt at home here." Taking over on Easter weekend gave them a good start to their new business. They met many of their regular customers as well as many visitors spending the Easter break along the Coast. They have moved into the residence attached to the service station with two of their five sons, Richard and Jonathan. Richard attends Yeppoon High School (Year 10) and Jonathan is in Year 7 at Sacred Heart. Their three older sons, Kent (23), Darren (22) and Jason (19) were boarders at St Brendan's. Both Brendan and Pam are golfers and, while they would like to continue playing, they feel they will be too busy at first looking after their business. Brendan is also a bowler and a Lion. He said on the weekend it looked as though he would be joining Yeppoon Lions Club because he had already received three invitations to attend. "Lions are friendly everywhere," he said. "I expect to be able to make time available for the weekly meetings." Brendan was a member of Taroom Lions Club and was vice president in 1985. Because of their many holidays in Yeppoon, Brendan and Pam know their way around and already have many friends and acquaintances. "We used to holiday in an old beachfront house near Hacienda an uncle owned," Pam said. "We always loved it here. It's a wonderful place for families."

NEW LESSEE KNOWS ALL ABOUT FORDS BRENDAN WILLIAMS is a mechanic who knows Fords ... after working with them since November, 1953, he should. That's when he started working at Dawson Motors in Taroom, the town's Ford dealership owned by his uncle. In those days they Customline was supreme among the big cars and the Zephyr and Consul battled against Holden for market shares. In the '60s and '70s the battle continued with Fairlanes and Falcons and, into the '80s, the tide turned and Ford took over the number-one sales position in Australia. During these years, Brendan was attending Ford schools as each new model was introduced. He was shown the differences in engineering as each new model Ford came along and became expert at repairing them. At the same time, the Ford dealerhip also repaired repaired other makes so that Brendan brings a wide experience to D & S Motors. He said he would not be changing the business. Tony Irwin will be continuing as mechanic and Michael Marsh would continue to offer his same friendly driveway service. The business hours will still be from 6am to 8.30pm, 7 days a week. "D & S Motors is a good, solid business. There's no need for changes," he said. "We'll continue to offer Mobil driveway service, mechanical repairs, spare parts, milk, bread, cigarettes and sweets ... we may be adding icecream to the range." Brendan Williams said D & S Motors was equipped with an electronic wheel aligner and electronic wheel balancer. All general mechanical repairs could be carried out including tune-ups and services.

❑ By STAN KENT AS ANZAC DAY draws near again, it is not difficult for me to remember the very good friends who paid the supreme sacrifice. Firstly there were the very lonely graves we left behind in the mountains in Timor; next were the many men of our unit who were killed when on the way to the landing at Lae (our landing craft was hit by an enemy aerial torpedo); and later the heavy casualities we suffered in the battles fought to capture the island of Tarakan in Borneo. However the Anzac Day which brings back most memories to me was the Anzac Day I spent in Vietnam in 1965. At that time I was posted to the Australian Army Training Team. The unit comprised Officers and Warrant Officers who were attached 'to South Vietnamese units, both training units and combat units. As a result we were scattered throughout the country, mainly in the Northern Provinces. Although our headquarters was in Saigon we also had an administration headquarters in Da Nang consisting of two houses on adjoining blocks and was commonly known as Australia House. It was decided to bring as many members of the unit as possible to Australia House for Anzac Day. This was only .made possible with the voluntary assistance of an American Air Transport unit at the Da Nang airport. The day before Anzac Day a transport aircraft was made available to our staff to fly to Hong Kong to obtain some Australian beer, a very welcome change to the beverage normally available. The Air Transport unit also agreed to assist in the transport of personnel from the outpost to Da Nang. At dawn on Anzac Day, a Caribou Aircraft left Da Nang to pick up members in the Northern Area, first to the South then to Dong Ha,Gio Linh, Quang Tri, Hue, Phu Bai, Dong Da and back to Da Nang. At the same time another aircraft was doing the run south of Da Nang, first to Kham Duc, then to Quaig Ngai, Tam Ky, Hoi An and back to Da Nang, arriving about 10am. At 1 lam, a Memorial Service was held followed by the usual Anzac Day luncheon. The afternoon was spent swapping yarns because some members had not seen each other for many months. There was also the usual game of two-up. It did not take long for our American friends to learn the finer points of the game. At 4pm it was farewell to friends and back to the airport for the slow flight back to the outposts because all members had to be hack at their bases by sundown. Unfortunately, in subsequent military • operations throughout South Vietnam, a number of those present that Anzac Day were to be killed in action. It is the memory of those friends that is foremost in my mind as Anzac Day draws near each year.

IN the spring of 1945 two air-crews were gathered at 4am in the Sergeant's Mess of 630 Lancaster Squadron at the Royal Air Force Station at East Kirkby, Lancanshire, for the ritual pre-operational breakfast of bacon and eggs. There was much and varied speculation as to the reason for such an unusual take-off time because most squadron operational flights took place at night. Briefing soon disclosed the reason, and the destination. By their devious methods, Air Force Intelligence had discovered that a meeting of the German High Command was planned for that morning at Berchtesdaden, Hitler's fortified chateau high in the Austrian Alps. The plan was that a successful surprise bombing attack on that target would result in an immediate end to the war. A for Able and C for Charlie were waiting in the dispersal bays and the crews took off on a set course across France toward the rising sun of a crisp new day. Over the border of Switzerland they climbed to 20,000 feet because that neutral country liked to demonstrate their neutrality with multi-coloured anti-aircraft fire which was very colourful but not very lethal. The target had been marked earlier by a Pathfinder flare and when over German territory the flight plan was to let down to 800 feet, below mountain-top level, to avoid radar detection. The Lancasters unloaded their 1000 pound bombs over the target and turned for home. When the front-line Rhine River was crossed the crews were free to return home by whatever route seemed most appropriate. Both aircraft returned safely to base. At de-briefing it was learned that the German High Command had cancelled the meeting. Little had been achieved by the raid, apart from a slight re-arrangement of Hitler's holiday retreat. As a tourist trip it was a huge success, never to be forgotten by those two air-crews. The spectacular scenery of the Alps was breath-taking and the opportunity to hedgehop across France was too good to miss.

Anzac Day set aside by grateful nation in solemn tribute to fallen ❑ By MERVYN SCOPE NO-ONE can understand Anzac Day without an understanding of Australia at war, of a nation engaged in a war not of its making but, never-the-less, fighting against an implacable foe that posed a serious threat to our democratic way of life, a foe whose cruelties left no doubt of the fate of the Australian people should the war be lost. One must visualise the emotional tension, the combination of patriotism, fear and determination; patriotism (the love of country so natural in all peoples); fear (the very real fear of the loss of control of our own future); determination (a grim determination to uphold our freedom and resist aggression. no matter what the cost - a cost that would clearly be measured in pain, suffering and the lives of serving men and women). As a nation, Australia marshalled men and women into one of the great fighting forces of the world and bestowed on them an affection and pride that seemed everlasting. They became the living, physical symbol of the nation's determination to resist and all Australia joined with them in the conviction of ultimate victory, shared with them the pride of successes, the disappointment of reverses,the anguish of the ever-lengthening casualty lists and the jubilation of final victory and the end to the slaughter. The people and the protectors were as one. Understanding this, we can understand Anzac Day, a day set aside by a grateful nation in solemn tribute to those who died in defence of this nation. "Their Name Liveth for Evermore" was no idle boast.

Capricorn Coast Mirror April 25 — May 1, 1987 — WHY 'LEST WE FORGET' MEANS SO MUCH TO SO MANY —

`Scrounger' taught him how to walk away from this 'bash' in one piece... ❑ By a Capricorn Coast resident MOST holidays are accepted in the same light these days, but Anzac Day has so many memories for a lot of people. The wars and so-called peace actions over the years, have touched most families in Australia, with the loss of loved ones, or the ones that still suffer today from shocking wounds and injuries received in various battles and actions that involved our Army, Navy and Air Forces. In my first few years in the Army I was with an Australian infantry battalion, then I was attached to United Nations headquarters. I would like to share some of my memories that I will think about and remember on Anzac Day. I will turn over in my mind memories of different actions: Korea, Vietnam; of trips into Malaysia, Borneo and other countries. Then I will think about mates, real close mates. In combat you have lots of friends and mates, but there are those select few who become real close mates. I was a type of loner ... perhaps my childhood and later because of the severe and intensive training I was put through over my 20 years' service (12 of them in overseas areas). I only had perhaps three or four who were close mates. So now I will share some of my memories. with you. A close mate, my first, was "Father Smith". He was not a father of the cloth and I'm reasonably sure he borrowed the surname of Smith just for the Korean action. I met Father Smith when I was posted to six platoon of the Australian battalion then serving in Korea. It was the later part of 1951 and I was 17 years old. On reporting to platoon headquarters Father Smith said to me: "You come with me. I'll look after you." I was wary and asked why? He looked straight at me and said: "Because I am going to teach you to survive and also how to walk away from this 'bash' in one piece." He taught me well over the two years we were together. He made sure I had the best cold-weather clothing and equipment, also the best automatic weapon and handgun that was available and made me practice for hours, firing and stripping them. He would not let me drink beer or smoke and so he had my ration of free cigarettes (tins of 50) and my beer ration ... which was scarce and valuable. He was known far and wide by the Americans, British, Canadians and other United Nation countries. He traded in everything .. watered-down whiskey, auto weapons, vehicles, etc. Somehow he could get hold of any item. No-one ever had the courage to question him about how he obtained them. I remember in 1951 we were taking a bit of a bashing and were losing ground. I was Corporal Section Leader and he said to me: "Things are too hot here. I'm off to Seoul to pick up a few things." A couple of days ... and he was back. Among other things he handed me was a flak jacket (armoured vest), a very rare item those days. Father said he did not need one. He never went on patrol ... he spent as little time as he could with us when we were "forward platoon". I can never remember him firing a shot in anger. Even when I was a sergeant and acting platoon commander late 1951 1 still cleaned his rifle. One of his trips away he visited the Yank air base at Inchon and returned with a newly painted jeep and 10 cartons of frozen turkeys. One time we came out of the line into reserve and waiting to take over from me as platoon commander was an officer who had come direct from Canberra. He was very raw and young and, of course, he and Father clashed. It was late in.195 I and the temperature was

a shade below zero. The officer wanted to smarten the platoon up with parades, drill and saluting. We had taken a bit of a bashing and lost our share of casualties when we were forward and none of us was really overjoyed at the situation. On the dawn parade, Father arrived in just his boots. We had had snow and sleet during the night and it cold, very cold (I knew Father had had a large mug of rum to keep the cold out). The new officer blew his top, but Father quietly, as usual, explained to him it was the platoon's custom that while in reserve the platoon commander and he would race over 500 yards in only their boots ... this was to prove to his men how fit the officer was. The officer reported Father to the company commander. No result. So he reported him to the battalion commander. The next day he was transferred to another platoon. You see, Father always made sure the officers' mess had the best food, liquor and entertainment that was available in Korea. Perhaps Father's masterpiece was when he caused great consternation with the US field mail service and United Nations intelligence in 1953. Father arrived at the US Field Post Office with a request to send a telegram to the wife of a good friend of his who had passed away. The postal NCO informed him that all charges to foreigricountries were a standard price ... he assumed Father's gram was to Australia.

The gram was written out, accepted, costed and paid for by Father. It read: To Mrs Joseph Stalin, Moscow. "Please accept our sincere condolences on your husband's `Joseph' death. We all admired him." Signed, Father Smith, United Nations Forces, South Korea. We made sure Father was unavailable for questioning by the intelligence and mail people. Nor did they have the opportunity to persuade him to take the gram back, as it had been accepted and paid for. Father was on 21 days R and R leave in Japan. I wonder if that gram was ever delivered. In 1952I left the battalion and was attached to United Nations Headquarters for special duties. part of my duties covered the study of daily reports that covered the front line action. I, of course, took special interest in the area covered by the Australians. In July, 1953 the North Koreans launched a large offensive in an attempt to straighten out the line. A US company on the left flank of the Australian battalion was over-run, six platoon was thrown in to plug the gap. I was able to get there within a few hours. The fighting was still in progress. The enemy had been broken and pushed back. Father had been posted to this platoon after leave and re-signing on for another hitch (his third). The good times, the experiences, are what I like to remember about Father. Not how I found him that morning on the side of a hill in a large patch of dried blood. Two days later I was present at the signing of the cease-fire. He may have been an old rogue, a scrounger, con man, a man with a weird sense of humour some said ... but to me he was my mate. So with the going down of the sun ... we shall remember them.

CCTO spreads word from centre THE Capricorn Coast's second Bruce Highway information centre will be opened shortly ... this information centre will be at Marlborough. A new highway sign, similar to the one erected recently at Raglan, will be placed just to the north of Marlborough township. Tourists will be directed to the new centre where Capricorn Coast promotion literature and hospitality will be readily available. CCTO chairman Howard Rodda said he would specially like to thank Cr Ron

Landsberg for his ready assistance in selecting a suitable site for the sign. He also thanked George and Margaret Newton of Marlborough who will be the Coast's tourism ambassadors. The sign will be funded from members' contributions and grant money from Livingstone Shire Council. "The CCTO is grateful for the assistance from Livingstone Shire Council which is now taking a closer interest in the promotion of our beautiful Coast," Mr Rodda said.

Old locomotive making tracks for Etna Creek

$25...all inclusive

Departs Rosslyn Bay daily 9.10am, returns 4.15pm approx

THE old steam locomotive at Daniel Park, Cooee Bay, will be moved to Etna Creek Prison next month as the first step in a major tourist project. It is planned to move the locomotive on May 9 with volunteer help (crane and truck) worth more than $10,000. The locomotive will be restored and rebuilt to working condition at Etna Creek Prison as part of a rehabilitation project for inmates. The Capricorn Tourist and Development Organisation has worked steadily for a project designed to attract tourists to the region by providing nostalgic steam-train trips. It is now "full steam ahead" for the project that, eventually, will culminate in nostalgic trips to Gladstone, Mt Morgan, The Caves and Yeppoon. The CTDO has already acquired vintage carriages for the trips and they are being ...sed already for trips with diesel engines. A p to Gladstone on the weekend for the -Barbour festival was a sell-out with 650 passengers. Further trips are planned next month to Mt Morgan and Biloela. For booking details phone 27 2055.

A HOLIDAY visit by Japanese exchange student Hiroko Omura impressed her enough to recommend the Coast to Japanese holidaymakers. Hiroko, after returning to Japan, found a job with a leading travel agency in the main section of Tokyo. Hiroko bevlieves the three weeks spent at Seaspray holiday units with fellow university student Chantal Hooper helped her win the job. The girls met while taking a course at the Institute of Modern Languarges at the University of Queensland last year. Hiroko was studying English and came to Australia in the hoper of improving her English and her chances of employment in a Japanese travel agency. Her study/holiday time in Australia paid off and now the Capricorn Coast has its own ambassador encouraging Japanese tourists to visit the area.

Bayview Tower News & Views WELL, as most of the regular readers of Enzo's column will be aware, Enzo has taken a well-earned holiday. I had a telephone call from him this morning from Los Angeles. He had just spent the day at Disneyland, had met Mickey, Minnie and all the gang. He will be at Anaheim for a couple more days then he's off to Las Vegas. It makes you really jealous, doesn't it! Anyway, back to Yeppoon. It's just as good as anywhere else in the world! We survived a very busy Easter and it was pleasing to hear such nice comments about the motel and the area in general. This weekend we welcome the Woolworths Allenstown Social Club to Bayview. They are holding their Teen Queen judging here on Saturday night. The Beer, Beef and Burgundy Club meets on Monday, April 27 and this promises to be a great night. Have you though of anything special for Mum on her special day yet? We will be having a Mother's Day Brunch in our Sails Restaurant on Mother's Day between 10.30am and 2pm. Give us a call for all the info. Why not shout Mum a night at Bayview ... I bet she would love to be pampered once in a while. FAULTY TOWERS... DURING recent road and water main works outside a popular Yeppoon Motel (did someone mention Bayview?) at different times throughout the day the main road entry was closed. During the afternoon the manager of said motel saw two people strolling up the street with bags and possessions in tow. He quickly raced out believing the poor guests could not work out how to bring their car to the motel and so decided to walk up the hill. He greeted the guests with "Hello ... was the road closed?" With this, the lady said "Oh ... OK!" and proceeded to turn around and walk back down the street. Hot in pursuit the manager said: "No, no. We're not closed. I thought the road was closed." They both stopped and • looked, obviously not understanding what he was about. In desperation Enzo, oops I mean the manager, said: "Where's your car?" The lady replied: "No car, we come by bus" .. with a strong German accent. Realisation struck that the couple was not strong in English and they were then politely escorted into the motel foyer and asked to complete the registration card.

It's no wonder the poor guy has gone away for four weeks. I bet the people concerned think we Australians are very obsessed with cars. That's it for this week ... from Shelley Blackburn, standing in for ... Bayview Tower

Indoor bowlers from Frenchville in A grade squash close games, fellowship with YIBC TWENTY-THREE indoor bowlers from the North Rockhampton Frenchville Club joined with 48 Yeppoon Indoor Bowling Club members on Wednesday morning of last week for three games of 12 ends and a session of close games and good fellowship resulted. Easter eggs were the rewards for the successful teams and a mere two points separated the first three combinations. First place went to Irwin Morgan (Frenchville), Kerry De Graaf, Jean Jennings, Tom Gosbee, Sylvia Cousin and Freda Hancock (YIBC) on 27 points. Two teams tied for the runners-up position with 25 points and on a countback Rita Moessinger (Frenchville), Rene Dalglish, Thelma Leigh. Andy Lehmann, Stella Luback (YIBC) and Dot Baker (Frenchville) with an aggregate of 56 relegated Aub Klaproth, Olga James, Adrian De Graaf (YIBC), Audrey Twiner, Hazel Schneider and Dot Morgan (Frenchville), on 4 aggregate, to third place. Lowest score trophies went to Chrissie Cant, Lil Rigby (Frenchville), Elena L'Estrange, Mona Bertrand, Dulcie Locke and Mery Eggerling (YIBC) who could only manage 12 points. Easter eggs were again the reward of the best performed players on the Thursday night. These were given by Dulcie Locke, Flo Collins and Vi Robson. Again close games were the order and the lowest possible margin of one point was the difference between first and third place getters. In the top spot with 25 points were Ken Jones, M Wheeler (Caloundra), Florence Collins, Cec Brown and Freda Hancock. Two teams on 25 tied for second place and on a countback Alma Jones, Adrian De Graaf, Dulcie Locke, Errol Ward and E Wheeler (Caloundra) were successful by one point with an aggregate of 37 over Vi Robson, Kerry De Graaf, Ken Moore, Alan Philp and Harry Whiteacre on 36 aggregate.

cnr James and Mary Streets Yeppoon

THE Capricorn Coast Squash Club recently hosted the Rum Cup Competition at tyie Capricorn Coast Squash Centre. /The Rum Cup is a social event of some notoriety contested by the Rockhampton Squash Club and the Coast club. The Rockhampton club brought a strong team of 24 players in an endeavour to wrest the cup from the current holders ... Capricorn Coast. Coast fielded a good representative team of 30 players who were narrowly defeated by 1240 points to 1210. The day's play finished with the traditional barbecue and refreshments. Coast president Brian Umlauft presented the cup to the Rockhampton players. "The proof of the cup's popularity is that our team increases in size each year," Mr Umlauft said. The cup will next be contested on a date to be fixed in the second half of the year when Rockhampton will host the social event.

YEPPOON Amateur Basketball Association have moved their Sunday novices training and game from 5pm to 10am from Sunday, April 26. Publicity officer Don Willoughby said the executive regrets any inconvenience caused to parents by the time change but the move was necessary to allow a full game for the ordinary junior competition now starting from 5pm. YABA use of the stadium from 10am to noon will also allow senior and junior teams access to half court for training purposes during the period. Because the novices will need full court part of the time training access will only be available by booking. Teams seeking access should book on 393414. A charge of $3.50 will apply for each hour. All teams, both seniors and juniors, are. now required to play in uniform with numbers from 4 to 15. This assists the referees and allows greater spectator enjoyment.

CAPRICORN Coast A grade squash team Mariners is making a mid-season move. In two weeks' play they have moved fron fifth to second. Firstly, sweeping All The President's Men and His Wife off their feet 40 and then, this week, accounting for a weakened Social Hitters team by the same margin. This is also an indication of the closeness of the competition. This week The President and Some of His Men Plus Reserves were able to hold off point-score leaders, Team. Number One. Ray Campbell for the The President continues to be consistent ... this week accounting for Len Keily in three. Chris Hacker played some convincing shots when he won his first match of the season in five against Neil Roberts who has been out of action for a few weeks. Joe Foat, once again, proved that fitness and accuracy work when he accounted for Bernard Lacey in three. Ellen Farr persevered with her game plan to win against Warren Royal in four, although both players appeared to be well below their potential. All The Presidents Men Plus His Reserve defeated Team One, two rubbers each, seven games to six: Ray Campbell defeated Len Keily 3-0; res Lyn Witts v Glen Ward 1-3; Mery Leslie def Chris Briggs 3-0; Brian Umlauft v Tony Smith 0-3.

Geodesy makes light work of 59kg winning Bootee Stakes

Atftittitil tasaiY110940





TEM do, rai 111111.6

0 By Leo Mackie GEODESY showed that he was all class when he easily won the feature Patience Park Silver Bootee Stakes (1100m) at Tyrer Park last week. Geodesy made light work of his 59kg topweight and despite being eased down by his jockey Mark Unwin broke the track record for the old surface by one second. Geodesy, which is trained by Gally Rodgers for the Brittain family, was having his first run since finishing an excellent fourth in the Golden Nuggett at the Gold Coast on March 21. The Roman Prince colt was a late entry pay-up for the Nissan-D.C. Motors Two-Year-OldClassic (1200m) to be run at Callaghan Park today (Saturday). The Patience Park Silver Bootee Stakes was the racing feature at Tyrer Park with the other highlight of the afternoon's racing being the official opening of the upgrade track and facilities by Member for Broadsound Denis Hinton. Mr Hinton was supported by Chief %„„y..xecutive Officer for Racing in Queensland Ian Wade who was representing the Racing Minister Russ Hinze. Mr Wade, who had been in Yeppoon when racing resumed on September 23, 1981, expressed amazement at the big changes effected since then. In his remarks Mr Wade gave an indication that another application for funds to carry out further work would receive favourable consideration in about a year. In its plans to further improve Tyrer Park the YARC would be looking for a watering system to keep its planned grass track in racing condition for meetings on a more regular basis than at present. First race Bill Cameron made it two meetings on end when Mr McCandless took out the Maiden Handicap (1200m) in a real thriller with the favourite, Time is Money. In fact the stewards had a lengthy deliberation on a protest lodged by Time is Money's rider, Mark Unwin before confirming the placings as the horses passed the post. Another close finish resulted in the second race, the Country Stakes (1200m), when Morlock failed by a neck to run down Czar Star, which was ridden by Wally Welburn for the Gary Lane stable. The veteran and outsider of the threehorse Open Handicap (1200m), Tanzada gave Don and Peggy Forsyth a real racing thrill when he easily beat Rosslyn Bay and the 6/4 on favourite, Gordon Grove. Another outsider of the three-horse field, G'old John won the final event, the Park Stakes (1800m), by three lengths from stablemate and 6/4 on favourite, Dawson uy and Rockabye James. The YARC will hold its next meeting on May 20, the feature Toast of the Coast fixture at which in excess on $20,000 in prizemoney and trophies will be distributed.

Swans kick up huge homeground victory over Biloela Bombers side 0 By JAY BLAKE THE Yeppoon Swans registered another huge homegrou'nd victory on Saturday when they trounced the Biloela Bombers by more than 30 goals. The game created two new records; firstly the longest game ever played in Yeppoon and secondly they had more goal kickers than Sir Joh's Honour List. With the Reserve grade receiving a walkover we saw for the first time in three weeks a fresh senior side take the field, and with good marshalling from the "Professor" the side ran on breathing fire. A great emphasis was placed on handball and with this they ran their Bomber opponents ragged, though too many times the ball was delivered to either man under pressure or stationary. Taking the match as a whcile, Yeppoon was found wanting too often around the packs and one wonders why "Cooky" Cruikshank was left cooling his heels at fullback for three quarters. A pleasing aspect to come out of the game was the way that all players, even though the result was almost beyond doubt at quarter time, didn't stop and kept plugging away at their game plan. The game itself was a scrappy affair throughout but there were many highlights. "Spiros" Bourke had the best game by any individual ever seen at the Showgrounds. He had more than 40 possessions and was the play maker responsible for most of the Swans good passages of play. He rightly won the coverted "Mag" award and if last Saturday was any indication he will be a major factor in the Swans' resurgence. Ben Kelly came on at the start of the second quarter and straight away had a big impact on the game. He gained control at the centre bounces and took the brunt of the heavy work around the ground.

Warwick Capper twin, Phil Munro, was among the goals, in between posing for photos at the pavilion end and finished with 10 majors which could easily have been 15. "Side Step" Chapman, although hampered by a thigh injury, had his opponents eating his dust as he continually dashed around the wings. Mark "Sparrow" Taylor, who wore his Pierre Cardin-designed thermal thigh bandage thrilled the crowd with his high leaping and occasional scissor kicks. Local restaurateur J R Heathcote bobbed up with two good goals in the last quarter and might have had two more had he not been holding up his `Steakhouse' sign. I would like to mention the fantastic job being carried out by the club's caddies led by Penny Munn and Cindy Bauer (Munro). I hope everyone appreciates the fine work that all the girls are doing and gets in and supports them. My best players: Bourke, Munro, Kelly, Brown, Herewane and Motton. Goal kickers: Munro 10; Herewane 6; Bourke 5; Brown, Kemp 4; Kelly 3; Fraser, Belot, Motton, Heathcote 1; Munn and Dell 1 The prestige grooming award goest this week to Ben Kelly for being the first person to come out of the showers grubbier than when he went in. This week Yeppoon takes on Brothers at Victoria Park. Hopefully with last week's good win some players might find a little commitment and two full sides can make the trip to Rockhampton. It's the best way to revamp a flagging spirit, travel as a club and bring home a victory together. One last point, it would be good to see another couple of incentive awards for the players.

'Gym Talk

...with Mal O'Keeffe I would like to take this opportunity to introduce you to my Aerobics Staff... Elizabeth has three classes a week, Monday, Wednesday and Friday at 12.30pm. This class is excellent for stretching and toning your muscles gently. Rozanne also has three classes a week ... Tuesday. Wednesday and Thursday at 6pm. This class is ideal for those wishing to increase their fitness level as well as tone muscles and assist in weight loss. We also have a ladies' gym operating with Roxanne ... Monday to Thursday from 1 lam to noon. There are already 10 women attending ranging in age from 17 to 45 (but the more the merrier!).. The class finishes with 'a hot sauna and a warm spa. My latest addition to the Bakehouse Gym is a Tanning Solarium ... so you can have a golden-rich tan through. the winter months. The yearly membership is still only $175 and that is less than $4 per week. Where else could you go seven days-a-week for less than that? ...You had better be in quick before my price rise. To obtain full benefit of any exercise, a minimum of three times .a week is highly recommended.

A POINT OF INTEREST... After Aerobic activity your body continues to burn calories at a higher rate than if you were engaged in normal activity. This can last up to six hours after a 45 minute session ... which isan added boost to weight reduction efforts, with of course, a sensible diet.

Daryl Skinner `Air Powers' to State Arrow Catamaran title KEPPEL Bay Sailing Club held the State Arrow Catamaran Titles over the Easter weekend. There were five local boats entered making up a field of 14 with other boats coming from Brisbane, Toowoomba and Mackay. Five races were run around an Olympic triangle. They included an Invitation Race on Good Friday and two heats on both Saturday and Sunday. The skippers showed their capabilities and stamina on Friday and Saturday when they were confronted with 20 to 25 knot winds and heavy seas. However Sunday morning brought sunshine and light 10 knot breezes making for some enjoyable racing. Obviously the conditions suited the local boys. When the points were counted on Sunday local champion Daryl Skinner emerged the overall winner in his boat Air Power. Second was another KBSC sailor Ian Musker in Superoo. Third was Geoff Leech in Think orSwim from Beachmere SC near Brisbane. In the handicap results, another KBSC sailor Mike Walter in Flash showed the was home, followed by Ian Nicholson in Narrow Escape from Beachmere Club. Third was another local boat Flyer ably skippered by Alan Croft from KBSC. At the same time as the State Arrow Titles were being run, Keppel Bay Sailing Club also held the Central Queensland Tasar Titles and the Easter Egg Cup for Sabot. The fact that the club is holding the World Tasar Titles in 1988 must have a bearing on the amount of local entries in this class. Out of a field of 15, 10 were local boats from KBSC. Southport and Mooloolaba clubs were also represented. Even the Navy got in on the act, sending down two boats from Cairns. (The RAN use these high performance two-man craft as training dinghys for their personnel.) However the locals did it again with Australian Tasar Champion and local chemist David Higgins coming in as the outright winner in Celerity closely followed by young Damien Stover in Crusader. Third was .the only non-local boat to finish in the placings, Now and Then, skippered by Tony Schofield from Mooloolaba YC. In the handicap results it was a walkover for KBSC boats, with Roger Smee in Charlie Bubbles in first place followed by Rob Tranent in Rule No. Four and Peter Smith in Hirundo third. Strong southeast winds and choppy seas played havoc with the junior Sabot sailers on the Easter weekend. Of the five programmed races, only three were able to be run. However seven boats braved the conditions which improved on the Sunday making for some enjoyable racing for those who persevered. Final results: Martin Watson in Kamikazi, 1; Joshue Fuller and Scott Fixter in Just Deserts, 2; Jason Little in Little Bit, 3.

LIFE is so hard for teenagers ... all they ask of their parents is a little love, some understanding ... and an open wallet. One Coast teenager has been trying to teach his parents the facts of life for the past three years. He's done his best to explain to them, in the exasperated tones used when talking to people of lower intelligence, that he's old enough to know what's best for him. He tried to explain, patiently, to his parents, that he's an adult now and doesn't deserve to be treated like a child. He's tried to explain to them that they should take on a little more of the burden of running the house ... you know feeding the dogs, clearing the table, packing the dishwasher and mowing the lawn while he pursues the higher things in life. The higher things, of course, are annoying the cat by pulling its tail, stirring up the dogs until they bark at all hours of the night; stirring up his brother so that he can be caught fighting while the big brother slops in a lounge chair polishing his halo. Well, over Easter, after another of those impassioned pleas for understanding, one teenage son threw u; his hands in horror at parental indifference----" and went to the drying cabinet in the laundry. There, while the bare radiator bars pushed out a golden glow, teenage son had placed a frozen-solid two-litre carton of fruit juice to melt it. As the moisture dripped from the carton and into the glowing radiator bars, son reached in and picked up carton. There were no anguished cries before electrocution; his eyes didn't light up ... in fact, he turned to father and asked would he like a glass of orange juice. Shaken father turned away ... more determined than ever to protect his son from himself. Why do fathers age so quickly? O

ISN'T it strange the way we all walk around looking at things without seeing them? Waddayamean? Well, I'll give a for instance ... every week, sometimes two or three times a week most of us wander into Denhams Supermarket, make a selection, go through the checkout and get a docket with our change. What do we do with the docket? Beats me ... but we can't be reading them. Robin King, however, is the exception. Over Easter he bought some items at the supermarket, checked his docket and, lo and behold, discovered this message: "Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year from Denhams Yeppoon". He has the docket to prove it ... but he needn't bother keeping it because every docket says the same thing. Oh well, some tourist resorts claim their streets are paved with gold ... we can claim_ it's Christmas every day!!! O

ANOTHER example of the powers of observation ... the old co-op shed was partly demolished on Tuesday afternoon when a genuine, dinky-di local of 12 years noticed the frame of the building, without roof or siding ... "Look," he says, "there's a new building going up near the railway line!" O

EVER notice how when younger brothers introduce their oldest brother they say "this is my brother" ... but oldest brothers introduce younger brothers by saying "this is my younger or (little) brother". And it doesn't seem to matter whether "little brother" is six feet four!!!
