LEX SEMPLE, the man whose name has become synonymous with Yeppoon Fire Brigade, retires on Sunday ... but he won't be severing his connection with fire-fighting. He will be taking his memories - and his fully-restored 1926 Bean fire engine and original brass helmet - with him to his new home on Rockhampton Road. His retirement plans are sketchy because he had hoped to stay on at Yeppoon until at least February next year when he would have clocked up 40 years, but he has been retired because of problems with his health. His long-term retirement plans include opening a museum of fire-fighting memorabilia he has collected, including a second fire engine but, for a while, he will have to store his equipment at home. "No doubt there will be a few people interested in seeing my collection but I won't be operating on a commercial basis ... I expect word will get around and a few will drop in just to say hello," he said this week. His,collection will also be seen at the fire station during Fire Prevention Week from October 23 and will probably be taken around Coast schools. Leaving the fire brigade will not be easy for Lex Semple. His life has revolved around fire-fighting ever since he became involved in Japan in 1947. He was a Royal Australian Air Force acting corporal in the British Commonwealth Occupation Forces (BCOF) when a big fire changed his life. Helping to fight the blaze, he saw a man about to hose a transformer ... "I ran at him and knocked him flying," Mr Semple said. Some days later he applied for a position with the BCOF fire brigade and nervously went for an interview ... "the Pommie behind the desk was a colonel, I was an acting corporal, and he was the bloke I'd knocked flying. As far as I was concerned the interview was over." But the "Pommie colonel" thanked Lex for what he had done. He said he was an infantryman who knew nothing about firefighting but was in charge of the fire brigade. He reckoned Lex knew what he was doing and gave him a start ... not long after, Lex was training other firemen. • CONTINUED ON PAGE 2

THE Capricorn Coast's three main services police, ambulance and fire brigade - all reported a quiet week and no major disturbances. Yeppoon Police officer-in-charge Sgt 1/c Ken Tanzer said he was pleased with the Pineapple Festival crowd's behaviour. Sgt Tanzer said the good week free of incidents was 'marred on Tuesday night with two break and enters. The police were continuing investigations after the Strand Hotel and His `n' Hers were broken into. A Yeppoon Fire Brigade spokesman said apart from a small grassfire that was quickly

extinguished there have been no major fires. The spokesman said an old abandoned boat shell was slightly damaged in a fire but it was also put Out before spreading. The past two weeks has also seen a change in the weather. A combination of heat and wind have dried off the grass creating a fire hazard. The spokesman reminds Coast residents to check their backyards and clear any potential hazards including tall grass. Yeppoon-Emu Park District Ambulance was kept pretty busy with transports but no major accidents.

In August the following year Val, soon to be his wife, sent him news that Rockhampton Fire Brigade was employing firemen. The 72-hour week that firemen at that time worked had been reduced to 56 hours and staffing had to be increased. Lex sent an application and received word that if he could return to Australia by February, 1949, and get a discharge from the RAAF, he had a job. Everything fell into place and he started his long career. Starting as a fireman, he moved through the ranks to the equivalent of 1st Class A Grade Fireman until he was made station officer at Yeppoon under Lindsay Evans on December 23, 1963. Lex has been here ever since, taking over when Lindsay Evans retired. • 'In almost 40 years Lex Semple has seen a lot of fires ... he recalls fires in the main street behind shops when rubbish has flared up and posed a threat, especially when large gas bottles have been in the middle of the blaze. There was the big blaze in the '60s when the cafe, that used to be where Bill Green Real estate stand today, caught fire. "Frank Mortensen had the grocery store next door and we saved his shop but the cafe was gutted," he said. Soon after, the fire-damaged premises were demolished to make way for the present shops. There have been endless grass fires ... long, exhausting battles that have started as early as 8am and continued until 2am the next day. But Lex Semple vividly remembers the house fires ... "people lose everything in a house fire because it happens so fast," he said. "The firemen can usually have a house blaze under control in 20 minutes but in that short time, home owners are usually left with few possessions." And that recalled a quirk of human nature he has observed over 40 years ... the strange things people grab when running from a fire. "People pick up a new video, or a television set, or a sound system ... and they leave behind a photo album of priceless photographs," he said. "I have never been able to figure that out. Furnishings can be replaced. Insurance will buy a new video or whatever ... but an album of family pictures that can never be replaced is left to burn. Children have the right idea. They run away from a burning house clutching a teddy bear, a doll, or a puppy. They don't care about furniture." But the "potentially most dangerous" fire Lex Semple fought occurred only late last year when the Livingstone Shire Council depot shed blazed in the October night. "There was PVC piping, polythene piping, tractor tyres, paint, pesticides and insecticides in the middle of the blaze ... that was dangerous." He blames that fire for the illness that brought about his retirement. Only four breathing apparatus were available and he gave them to four firemen who had to flight the blaze in different parts of the shed. He had no way of contacting them to see how they were going, he couldn't see them or hear them, so he crawled along the floor from one to another, giving instructions. "I felt really bad after that and lay outside in the night air," he said. Now that fighting fires is over for Lex, he recalls he did have other jobs. Born in Rockhampton, on November 16, 1926, he attended Parkhurst and Central Boys' School (later pulled down and replaced by a fountain). His first job was delivering job printing on a tricycle for Oxford Press followed by a job with Williams Ltd in their mattress-making factory. He moved to the company's retail store in East Street ... and, in January, 1945, enlisted with the RAAF. He had tried to get into the RAAF as a driver, was accepted as a clerk ... and in four years, never spent a day in the office. He was mostly driving or in air-sea rescue launches. It was the RAAF that led to his career in the fire brigade ... a career that closes, very reluctantly, on Sunday.

And Santa's still coming to town BEFORE anyone panics ... Lex Semple will still be driving Santa Claus around the Capricorn Coast this Christmas. The white Holden "sleigh" is in top running order and Santa's famous red sleigh with flashing lights is already counting the days to its first Christmas outing. Lex said this week he would be driving Santa around town for as long as he can ... "I couldn't disappoint the children, or their parents." He's hoping people or groups wanting to contact Santa can still make arrangements through the Yeppoon Fire Station ... but Santa can also be reached at Lex's home phone number, 39 1295. As anyone who has ever spent Christmas on the Coast knows ... it's not Christmas until Santa is seen riding around town atop Lex's Holden!

TOTAL community support is needed for the annual cancer fund dooknock on Sunday, October 9. Coast appeal co-ordinator Ernie O'Sullivan said drivers were still needed to help with collections. Mr O'Sullivan said money raised from the doorknock appeal was used to research, educate, treat and service people about and with cancer. "More than $1 million has already been allocated to fund cancer research projects in Queensland during 1988," he said. "This is the highest amount ever awarded to research in a single year." This week special appeal donation envelopes were delivered to householders in the area. Collectors and drivers will spend about two hours on Sunday collecting donations. Collectors and drivers are asked to meet at Yeppoon Post Office between 8.30am and 9am. Mr O'Sullivan said collections would take about two hours. "This is not just another appeal," he said. "It is absolutely vital if we are to continue the excellent work being done by the Queensland Cancer Fund in the field of cancer research, education; treatment and service to cancer patients." Mr O'Sullivan said the three Coast secondary schools - Yeppoon State High, St Ursula's College and St Brendan's College - had indicated students would help with collections btit more drivers were needed. If you can help in any way phone Mr O'Sullivan on 39 1327 or 39 1179.

CAPRICORN Coast Chamber of Commerce and Industry president Tony Millroy told the. October meeting to "push on" despite a lack of numbers. There were only 12 people present including Livingstone Shire chairman Cr John Bowen, shire accountant Denis Murphy, minutes secretary Nicole Ray and a journalist. Chamber vice-president Vince Welsh put forward a blue army proposal aimed at involving retired business people and the unemployed. Mr Welsh said his concept, which has been used in other areas, would involve a business, the expertise of business people and the unemployed ... the idea to give unemployed people the chance to learn skills and obtain experience. The blue army would work on a contract basis. Mr Welsh said many Coast businesses couldn't afford full-time employees but often during busier times needed an extra hand. His idea is for the extra hands to come from the blue army. Chamber president Tony Millroy addressed the Probus Club (formed from retired businessmen) yesterday to gauge ideas and support for the project. Chamber members said there would probably be a number of Coast retirees with business expertise who would be willing to help with such a scheme. Shire chairman Cr John Bowen said the suggested movement was similar to the already proposed skillshare programme and it would be a good idea to further investigate possible support of this. Andrew McClelland took the blue army idea a step further by suggesting that small businesses should be offered the assistance of market managers who could help a business diversify or ways to improve overall prospects. A carpark moratorium was raised during the meeting. Members asked Livingstone Shire councillors present about the possibility of introducing a moratorium to boost business development. Cr Bowen said council had no by-law on parking contributions and was in the habit of examining applications on merit and within existing by-laws. On contributions, Cr Bowen said if someone bought a business, pulled down the existing building, rebuilt with the intention of operating a similar business it would not be necessary to make parking contributions. However, if the type of business was to change, the possibility of contributions was high. .

Emu Park talks on upgrading Park facilities EMU PARK and District Chamber of Commerce members met on Tuesday, September 7. It resulted in-several suggestions including a directory of businesses for Emu Park and district. Chamber spokesman Barry Laundry said the directory was expected to be completed by Christmas. Mr Laundry said the chamber also discussed upgrading the recreational facilities in Bell Park. "We want to complement the new swimming pool with extra facilities for children," he said. "The chamber has come up with a few suaaestions on how to raise the money and what type of equipment and will make a submission to Livingstone Shire Council." Mr Laundry said a membership drive would also be a chamber priority. With about 30 already registered they hope to boost the numbers with the drive. The Emu Park and District Chamber meets on the last Tuesday of the month. The next meeting is on October 25 at 7.30pm in a venue yet to be decided.

Chamber treasurer Lyle Spyve put forward a suggestion that young achievers be recognised in the community. He spoke about the recent success of three apprentice chefs who had won bronze and gold in a state-wide apprentice chef competition. This would be in addition to the awards already available ... shop assistant of the month, businessman of the month and business of the year. The chamber also wanted Cr Bowen to talk about the result of several submissions put forward by the chamber including budget submissions, work on bus stops, pedestrian crossings, strategic plan and a motion to invite the town planner to hold a seminar at the next meeting. Cr Bowen said some of the proposals would be acted upon others included in the three-year works plan and others not yet considered. Members agreed to the payments of 5564 to Capricorn Printing, S57 to the Morning Bulletin, and 5224 to Rockhampton Publishing before pressing on to agenda items. iss

THE State Government should introduce a 50 per cent rate rebate for pensioners for general rates, water and sewerage rates in the next State budget. Speaking in State Parliament in the budget debate Member for Broadsound Denis Hinton advocated that the 20 per cent rebate currently applicable in Queensland be lifted in line with some other states to 50 per cent and ease the burden on senior citizens. "Livingstone Shire Council currently supplements the state subsidy assistance with additional assistance of up to 80 per cent on the general rate but only the state assistance of 20 per cent is available on the water and sewerage rates," Mr Hinton said. "Representations to me by Central Queensland and Yeppoon Pensioners League president Bill Shuttlewood has convinced me of the importance of the need given the 1400 full-time pensioners in the Yeppoon district as well as other pensioners at Emu Park and other centres. "I am determined that this area of need will be satisfied to assist local government as well as to provide relief to our senior citizens. I will be pressing the issuevery strongly over the next 12 months before the next State budget," he said.

$19,200 subsidy for showground A STATE Government subsidy of 519,200 for a new pavilion at Yeppoon Showground has been announced by Member for Broadsound Denis Hinton. "I have informed Yeppoon Show Society president Brian Dorey that he had been successful in obtaining the maximum subsidy of 40 per cent of the total cost of 548,000 of the new pavilion," Mr Hinton said. "The new building will house the lapidary club among other activities and I am currently assisting that club to obtain a 50 per cent subsidy on its capital requirements through a cultural capital subsidy scheme." ...

Spectacular fireworks thrill mardi gras crowd â– ABOVE: 19-year-old Joanne Steen from Rockhamton contemplates her win in the Miss Surfside on Sunday during the Pineapple Festival.


IT WAS a bumper weekend for the Capricorn Coast with Pineapple festivities attracting large crowds to all events. Friday night's mardi gras went off with a bang. Crowds mingled through the stalls while listening to Trinidad Calypso sing and dance the night away. A spectacular fireworks display enthralled spectators. Organisers said Friday's crowd was the largest crowd since Yeppoon Lions Club had taken over organising the festival in 1967. Saturday's activities culminated with the street procession. Floats of all shapes, sizes and colours made their way along part of Anzac Parade, Normanby and James Streets before ending the trek adjacent to Beaman Park. Beaman Park was the scene of pineapple activities including Woody's 1000 which attracted seven finalists. Bungundarra Raiders won its second successive title in 3.47 mins from a spirited Sapphire Diggers team, 4.03 mins, and Homemaker Tiles, 4.08 mins. Brothers Gordon, Royston and Andrew Wall formed the winning team. They donated S400 from their $1000 prizemoney to charity ... S100 to Livingstone State Emergency Service, 5100 to Capricorn Coast Blue Nursing Service and $200 to the Queensland Spastic Welfare League. The reintroduced cycle race attracted a large contingent. Traversing a 30km course the race was won by Keith Randell, Byron Tucker was second and Jason Reed third. Coast girl Majella Tanzer was crowned Pineapple Queen on

Saturday night at the Calypso Capers Cabaret in Yeppoon Town Hall. Majella, 17, was sponsored by the Yeppoon Lioness Club. Runner up was Sandra Mackie and Charity Queen was Julie Arnold. The inaugural junior wheelbarrow race was won by Dayle Perrin and Darren Petterwood. Greg Dunlop and Peter Raynor teamed up to take second and Tahnya Hoani and Charmaine Case won the girls' section. Senior wheelbarrow race winners for the third successive year were Mick and Steve Stafford. Graeme On and Ray Sherriff were second and Allan Dolbel and Gary Cook, third. Miss Senior Surfside is 19year-old Rockhampton girl Joanne Steen while Miss Junior Surfside is six-year-old Coast girl Angela Callianiotis.

SCOPE Club of the Capricorn Coast has organised free breast examinations at Yeppoon's new St Andrew's Hospital tomorrow (Saturday). A woman doctor will examine breasts free-ofcharge between 1pm and 4pm while talks will be given on the new mammography unit to be established in Rockhampton. St Andrew's communications and resource officer Viv Staley said one in 15 women were affected by breast cancer during their lifetime and it was the most common cause of death in women. "The cause of breast cancer is unknown and no method or means of prevention can be offered," she said. "Breast cancer is rare before 30 years and there is a 200 per cent increase in incidence between 40 and 50 years of age." Mammography takes an x-ray image of the breast and can detect early impalpable (not noticeable to touch) breast cancer at a stage

age of 40 years this dense tissue turns into fatty tissue and is easier to read on a mammogram," she said. However, in cases where family history points to breast cancer, a regular and earlier start to screenings is recommended.. The radiation dosage is less than having had two chest x-rays and repeated screenings do not cause cancer. A mammogram gives an image of the breast only, which is read by a specialist radiologist and is not a final diagnosis. Mrs Staley said the specialist may see on the image some suspicious changes which could indicate that cancer is present. The specialist will ask to see the patient for further investigations and a final diagnosis. "However, if a definite lump is palpable, then, even though the mammogram is not able to demonstrate the lump, a biopsy should be done by the specialist and is a rare situation," she said.

when survival rates could be markedly improved. The smallest palpable (one you can touch by feel) lump that can be detected by self examination is about the size of a 20 cent coin and could mean cancer has been present for about three years. There is no evidence to show there is a radiation risk from the x-ray offered to a patient at the time of a mammogram. "It has now been shown, that surveying mammographic results on diagnosing breast cancer has increased the patient's survivorship by 30 per cent." Screening mammography will be offered to women over 40. It is recommended screening for women between 40 and 50 should be 18 months apart and then every two years. Mrs Staley said it was difficult to diagnose breast cancer in women under 30 yeafs because of the breast's tissue density. "From around the

Yeppoon youth wins science Merit Prize YEPPOON'S Daniel Dalglish has been awarded a merit prize for his entry in the 1988 AMP Beyond 2000 awards in science and technology. Daniel, a 15-year-old student from Yeppoon State High School received $50 in prize money for his award winning project. His project was a simultaneous situation solver that has various uses for the home television set. Capricorn Coast's AMP agent John Rhodes presented Daniel with his prize at the school this week. "Daniel's project was an example of the creative and practical abilities of young Australians," Mr Rhodes said. "They have good ideas for doing things better and the competition enables them to show their ideas to the world."

COAST A HIVE OF ACTIVITY THIS WEEKEND THE Capricorn Coast will be a hive of activity' this weekend ... from plays and fetes to breast examinations and a street stall. Yeppoon State High School's Dinkum Poppies production started yesterday (Thursday), and continues tonight and tomorrow night at 7.45pm in Yeppoon Town Hall. Students and teachers have spent the past few weeks working on last minute items and dress rehearsals. They spent last weekend in final rehearsals with a full dress rehearsal on Monday. The musical Dinkum Poppies by Cenarth Fox was chosen to fit in with bicentennial celebrations. Director Pauline Griffiths said the musical takes a light-hearted look at Australia's past 200 years. A cast and crew of more than 100 students and teachers have worked to take scenes from history with a few alterations to make them local and relevant. Tickets are available from the high school and Stewart and Brumm Chemists. The cost, including a light supper, is adults S7, pensioners S5, children $3 and families $15. Saturday is also St James Guild street stall outside Findlay's electrical. The guild is famous for having some great goodies including cakes, jams and plants. Night and early morning entertainment fixed, roll-on to Sacred Heart Primary School's luncheon and fashion parade at Kanangra. The luncheon (cost S14) starts at midday and will continue until about 3.30pm. Gadabouts will entertain with fashions for all ages.

The fete, in the kindergarten grounds, starts at 11am and ends about 3pm. It will be a great day for the children especially with so many dressed up in their favourite nursery rhyme character. It will be an important day for Emu Park State Primary School when it holds its annual fete starting at 11 am ... a smorgasbord of entertainment for children and adults. Train rides, merry-go-round, competitions galore (knock'ems, guessing and sandpit hunts), stalls and raffleswill keep you hopping. Entertainment includes a children's disco, Julie's Jazzers, German dancing display, folk dancing, recorder group and a ping pong ball drop.

Pensioner units to cost $280,000 A SECOND block of eight pensioner units at an estimated cost of $280,000 will be built at 86 Whitman Street, Yeppoon opposite the shell club hall. Member for Broadsound Denis Hinton said he was pleased to announce construction because of Yeppoon's pressing need for low cost, high quality housing for pensioners. "I am very concerned about the living conditions of some of our pensioners and am embarking on a programme of continued improvement and upgrading," he said.

The new units will be constructed in this financial year and will be within easy walking distance of the shopping centre and handy to the new Bill Shuttlewood Lodge opened recently by Family Services Minister Peter McKechnie. "The units in John Street are also handy so it makes a nice community for people with things in common. "I am delighted to find a handy site and will be consulting with Yeppoon Penioners League with regard to a name for the new complex."

St Faith's ex-pupils meet again... ST FAITH'S held its annual reunion on Sunday with 98-past pupils travelling from 31 different places attending the service and lunch.

Organisers said they were overwhelmed with the response which included two women from

New Zealand, one from Papua New Guinea and another from Sydney. Other past pupils travelled from as far north as Cairns and west from Longreach. This is the third time a reunion has been held on the Coast on the Sunday closest to the school's feast day. In all, 103 attended the reunion and those at the lunch talked well into the afternoon recalling past days and looking at old photographs.

Citizens Electoral Council sets date for Yeppoon public meet CITIZEN inititiated referendum takes the power to instigate referenda from the government and giving it to the people. The Citizens Electoral Council will hold a public meeting in Yeppoon Town Hall on Friday, October 21 at 7.30pm to discuss citizen. initiated referendum. CEC Broadsound steering committee spokesman Mike Hartley said it was hoped a branch of the council would be formed following the public meeting. The main topic centres on citizen initiated referendum. Mr Hartley said this was the only platform pushed by the CEC and would basically give people the power to call a referendum instead of it being solely controlled by government. Guest speaker is Queensland University Law Department Dean Professor Geoffrey Walker. Professor Walker is also the author of The People's Law - Initiative and Referendum. Professor Walker will expand on how citizen initiated referenda work, focussing on three main areas ... the voter's veto, citizen initiated legislation and recall. Mr Hartley said these three stages of citizen initiated referendum were important aspects. Voter's veto enables people to reject proposed or existing laws, citizen initiated legislation is a way to introduce new laws and the recall is

where citizens, through referendum, can sack elected and unelected public servants. The meeting will address whether citizen initiated referendum works and why it is needed. Mr Hartley said the system already was being successfully used in Switzerland and some parts of America. "Citizen initiated referendum protects people against politicians, political parties, judges, police commissioners and oppressive legislation," he said. "It would not matter which political party was in power as Queensland voters could veto any bad legislation or remove politicians who did not act in the community's interests."

THIS column will be reminding Livingstone Shire residents every week until November 25 about the 1989 Australia Day Awards sponsored by Livingstone Shire Council through the Australia Day Council, Queensland ... and a running total of how many nominations have been received. Thisweek's total is one. There must be more than one person in the shire who deserves an award. The awards are meant for people who don't usually get praised publicly ... theywork away in the background helping the community and don't do it for praise, gain or ego trips. It isn't hard to nominate people. You must send or take a letter, it doesn't have to be typed, to Livingstone Shire Council before November 25. In the letter, which doesn't have to be enormous, you must explain why you think the person you have nominated deserves an award. They must be working for the community without payment. Put your chosen person's name, address and, if possible, phone number in the letter. You can nominate as many people as you wish, but they must be on separate pieces of paper. If you have nominated someone in the past and they didn't receive an award ... nominate them again. If you don't have enough information about the work your person has done ... sometimes that's okay, because the selection committee is made up of people from each Livingstone Shire division and they usually know what the people have done and can advise the rest of the committee. The Australia Day awards are important ... they are worthy testimonials to people who care. Don't put it off, sit down now and put pen to paper and nominate someone you know who deserves the honour. If you don't know what to say or how to say it, call in and see me, or phone 39 4244 ... I have the guidelines and am only too happy to help.

How long before enough is enough? SADLY, through publicity, events that are not worthy of public note rise to prominence and attract attention. The latest example in the never ending production of celluloid sewerage is the film "The Last Temptation of Christ". It appears that the recipe for to-day's film success is to take the truth, make it unrecognisable with lies, add a dash of sadistic violence, lace it with sex, attack the foundations of our society and conclude with a sick ending. How far are we prepared to go before we say, "Enough is enough!"? The debate presently raging over the film "The Last Temptation of Christ" is an opportunity to test your own values and possibly make some profound discoveries. How does one form a confident opinion on the meaning of life? Who is this man they call "Jesus"? How do we judge the comments of people and the 'Very Reverends' of this world? If the truth is worth discovering, it is worth about 60 minutes of your time to pick up the book and read Matthew, Mark or John's personal account of their life with Jesus. Wasn't it the academic 'Very Reverends' of 2000 years ago who had the man of the book crucified? Was He the perfect sacrificewithout spot or blemish? Was He without sin? What is sin? Did He die for me and for you? Why should He have to? A sincere attempt at reading one gospel from start to finish will provide much of the information you seek. The Holy Spirit is the revealer of Christ to our hearts - not man. - Geoff Cue, Vaughans Road, Yeppoon.

Sand mining will draw more protests I WAS saddened to read in the Capricorn. Coast Mirror 1/9/88 that Member for Capricornia Keith Wright sees the Bayfield area only as part of the Capricorn Coast's contribution to Central Queensland's "potential to become the major industrial and administrative area in the state". Should Mr Wright seriously not " want to see our magnificent coastline disturbed" as he recently stated in the newspapers then he should reconsider his support for sandmining ventures on the Capricorn Coast. The area the Pivot group wish to mine can be described as nothing short of spectacular and comprises part of arguably the least disturbed natural area on the east Australian seaboard south of Cooktown. Unfortunately not everyone recognises these

values as having worth and see the area only in terms of its industrial potential (coal ports, sand mines). However times are changing and coastal sand mining is one industry that will continue to draw growing protests stating that the long term natural values will outweigh the short term gains. Few of the people who are fortunate enough to have seen the sandmasses of Bayfield and Shoalwater Bay will need much convincing. - Gary Roberts, 98 Archer Street, Emu Park.

Most scenic and satisfying drive! IT WAS surprising, and saddening, to read the letter by Mollie Crawford, a local conservationist, expounding her apparent denigration of the Lammermoor 'rather sickly looking yellowish coconut palms'. As a resident of Statue Bay, it is always a delight to me and many others, to traverse the 1km length of the scenic drive along Lammermoor each time Yeppoon is the goal, and on return. After 15 years I find no reason to change my mind or my appreciative reactions. To me, it is the most scenic and satisfying lkm drive around Yeppoon in spite of jaudiced young coconut palms thoughtfully planted by our Shire Council then led by Cr Roy Wall. All credit to that council, and congratulation to those responsible for the beautification of Lammermoor, and to the residents who take pride in their lawns and gardens. I'm sure they will be pleased to know that many local residents appreciate and enjoy the visual results of their personal efforts and interest in their environment. Rather than showing a fetish for coconut palms or apeing our more tropical localities, I feel sure that Lammermoor residents have not considered such paiiochial aspects. but are simply doing something constructive in making their environment a delightful locatity in which to live, and which residents of the shire and visitors can also enjoy. Is Mollie Crawford so parochial and mentally inhibited against young, yellowish coconut palms, not to visualise Lammermoor in say 15 years time? I cannot imagine this lkr.i drive

then being otht than a much appreciated tourist and local 'xperience. Should those who do not appreciate yov- -, coconut palms wish to 'rest their eyes on quiet greens and greys of eucalypti, paperbarks and wattles', surely such areas are readily available and outnumber the area of young palms at Lammermoor at more than a million to one. Can Molly Crawford enlighten uswith statistics on cars dented by falling coconuts, or on unsuspecting passers-by injured by descending fruits? I feel sure that such biased griping does not enhance the conservation cause. It should be pointed out that 'a good specimen of a coconut palm', handsome or otherwise, is not, and cannot be 'a tree'; also, species of the genus Melaleuca are colloquially referred to as 'paper-barks', not the ti-trees (or tea-trees) which are members of the related genus Leptospermum. Continue to 'do your own thing', residents of Lammermoor, and Cabbage Palms weep on for those who do not appreciate your cousins! - K M Moore, Statue Bay.

WOMEN - Breast Cancer One in 15 women will be diagnosed as having breast cancer in their lifetime, and it accounts for one in four of all new cancers diagnosed ... the biggest killer disease in women. By the time a woman can feel the lump in her breast it has probably been present for at least three years andwill be the size of a 20c coin. Due to this, the prognosis is not good and there is a 30 per cent chance of the cancer having spread to somewhere else around the body. A Mammogram is a very low dosage x-ray machine (equivalent to two chest x-rays), capable of detecting a cancerous lump as small as Imm in size which would be totally undetectable by feel. It is known to be the single, most effective tool in the fight of breast cancer, increasing the survival rate by as much as 40 per cent.

3-day live-in squash clinic

Second grade cricketers look for second successive victory

PROSPECTIVE squash players under 16 years have a chance to learn more about the sport at a junior coaching school. Organisers hope to attract as many interested junior players to the three-day live-in squash clinic starting at 7pm on October 14 and finishing at 3pm on Sunday, October 16. A sleeping bag, toiletry, squash gear, towels and S25 is all it takes to be part of this clinic. The clinic will be held at Capricorn Coast Squash Courts. Coaches John Briggs, Ron Kerr and Tony Smith helped by club president Anne Perrin and secretary Valerie Odell will be present throughout the seminar. Mrs Odell said the clinicwould start on Friday night to give participants a chance to become acquainted with others at the clinic. It is the first time the Coast will hold a squash clinic. Mrs Odell said the idea was to foster skills, encourage juniors to play and also to take part in the many tournaments held year-round. The clinic will involve videos about the game and international players, training sessions at the courts and on Sunday, a round-robin competition starting at 9am.

THE Capricorn Coast Cricketers started the, second round matches last Saturday when the second grade played Parkana at Rockhampton Grammar School and third grade played Easts at Victoria Park. In second grade Capricorn Coast won the toss and sent Parkana (who were three men short) into bat. They were bowled out for 106. Wayne Kitchener and Ken Ogilvie were again the destroyers for Coast picking up all seven wickets between them. Kitchener bowled 14 overs, three maidens, two wickets for 27 runs and Ogilvie bowled 17 overs, seven maidens, five wickets for 18 runs. Other. Coast bowlers were Jeff Ingle, 10 overs, one maiden, nil wickets for 26 and Ian Anderson, 13 overs, three maidens, nil wickets for 30. Eddie Torr took the catch of the day. At stumps on the first day Cap Coast was 19 without loss. Andrew Reedman was not out on 15, and Eddie Torr is yet to score. "One would think the Coast team a certainty to get at least first innings points but their batting has let them down when they have been in similar positions in the past," club publicity officer Rick Robinson said. "So, with that in mind, let's hope they can get it all together when play resumes tomorrow (Saturday) and notch up their second successive first innings win." In third grade Coast has already lost first innings points to Easts. Capricorn Coast won the toss and elected to bat and was all out for 64. Brett Barnicoat top-scored with 16 and Peter Thompson made 13 and Daniel King, 11. At stumps Easts was four for 151. The most successful bowlers for the Coast,

ANYWAY he was moved from the factory to the company's retail store in East Street. His memory of that store was the practical jokes played on the girls in the cashiers cage. The store had those cylinders that were fired a shang-hai sort of thing and raced across —Le ceiling to the cashiers. The cashiers unscrewed the cylinders, took out the money, wrote receipts, gave change and sent everything back in the cylinder. Lex Semple recalls the "fun" male staff had catching a mouse, stuffing it, live, into the cylinder ... and sending it on its way to the female cashier! •••

LEX SEMPLE'S reluctant retirement from the fire brigade on Sunday is detailed elsewhere in this issue, but now's the time to talk about the other jobs he had.... and the "fun" of them. Lex worked for Williams Ltd in Rockhampton during World War II and a man named John Forrest used to make deliveries to the company's mattress-making factory in a solid-tyred truck. When the factory workers wanted a break from making mattresses they used to hose the dirt driveway that led to the factory loading area. The driveway was about 40 feet long and there was enough incline to stop the truck from making it into the loading bay. "We'd all have to rush out into the yard and push this truck up the hill so he could unload. We did it many times; it was a great way to have a break," he said. Wonder how the driver felt?

ON Saturday St James Indoor Bowls Club went to Mt Morgan and were beaten by eight points. On Thursday afternoon president Jack Rumpf held his trophy afternoon and 30 members contested his triples. Top scorers were Arthur Atcheson, Avis. Mallory and Doreen Jones. Runners up were Len Jones, Evelyn Seeman and Dulcie Ferry. Sportsman prize went to Joan Dobby, Kerry De Graff and Jim Spottiwood. Last Monday 15 members enjoyed a good game of social bowls and Ellen L'Estrange and George Miller won the raffles for the night. On Thursday afternoon St James' previous president George Miller was honoured for his many years of good service to the club by being awarded a life membership. "Congratulations George, a worthy award," the club spokesman said. Indoor bowls is held in St James Hall, Mary Street, Yeppoon on Mondays at 7.15pm and Thursdays at 1.15pm. All visitors welcome.

SOMETIMES there are items that should be in the classifieds ... then there are items that offer that something different. Try this one ... Would whoever (stole, borrowed) three pairs of football boots from the back verandah at Bay Vacationer please turn up for training in 1989 because we are short of players! Now, there's an item. By the way, for those who don't catch the significance of Bay Vacationer ... that means turn up for Aussie Rules training, for the Swans! • •• SAW something funny this week ... Dave Ruck's photo for a passport. He had that stunned mullet look in the face and eyes that made you think it was a collection of pisspot pics rather than passport pics! Better yet, he was showing around his 10-year-old passport ... proving he was once a lad with long hair and a chubby face. Passports are such cruel necessities! .•• SUZY and-"Old Baldy" went to Marlborough on the weekend to attend an annual bash for the Marlborough Ambulance. It was an eye-opener ... the ambulance winds up w;01 about $4000 from this annual event based Reef and Beef Night. There were 250 people m the Marlborough Hall who each paid $22.50 to eat as much as they liked. There were two huge tables loaded with tasty morsels such as tubs of king prawns; crabs; baked fish; trays of oysters ... and roast beef and Beef Wellington for those favouring the beef over reef. There was a sixpiece group called Reflections, a top act providing music that people had heard of and could dance to. There was a delay in proceedings for a crab race followed by a crab auction then the auction of a set of mounted brahman bull horns. Everyone put their hands in their pockets to get the night moving on to the dance numbers. One of the best money-raisering ideas was Cr John Smith's announcement that he would sing a song if $40 or more was raised. Apparently the total collection was $47. He sang some C&W tune about a crystal chandalier and wound up with a big round of applause. Great way to raise money ... by Cr Smith and the ambulance committee. It's a night well worth attending. One couple stopped purely by chance. They were driving from Darwin to Lithgow and called in at Marlborough for the night. They heard about the great night in the offing from the Marlborough Hotel. They thoroughly enjoyed themselves ... and made plans to spend another night in Yeppoon plus a night on Great Keppel Island! •

BY the way, Cr Smith's singing brings something to mind ... we've all heard shire chairman Cr John Bowen play the mot organ; and Cr John (Captain Paddles) Dowle has been known to strum a bit and singalong; and maybe there's a few other councillors with vocal ability. Well, what this brings to mind is ... maybe the councillors can form a glee club, and show the shire what real "harmony" is all about!
