Mike Potter, 23, a greeter at El Mocambo, said "to get along in this trade you've got to be a regular Kissinger." "You must never blow your cool and you soon learn that you can do more with honey than with muscles." At the Nickelodeon Room of Friar's Tavern, Martha Har- ding, a 65-year-old, grey- haired woman known to the regular patrons as "Aunt is the bouncer. To those that create a dis- turbance, she says "You sure- ly would never pick a flight with a nice old lady like and then orders them a cab. The Brunswick's Donny Sin- clair, 53, said "in this business you've gotta use humor and fi- nesse when giving the bum's rush to the odd customer too deep in the sauce." Mr. Sinclair, a four-foot, four-inch midget, added that "because of my size, who would dare take a swing at Russ (Twinkle Toes) Stevenson, 32, one of two bouncers at Le Coq d'Or, said "Kung Fu comes in handy when friendly persuasion doesn't work." His partner, Lee (Grasshop- per) Sheridan, 38, said regular customers are not the ones that create a nuisance. He said many of the regulars are "lonely rooming-house lodgers and they consider the club a home away from home." Being built like a weightlifter has its advan- tages and disadvantages for two other bouncers. Jim (Killer) Conroy, 45, a former professional wrestler and now bouncer at Kelly's, said, "It's like you're in one of those cowboy movies, where you have a reputation for be- ing the fastest gun in the West." With that kind of reputation, "every pipsqueak in a saloon wants to take a shot at you." But he gives them his meanest look and they back off. Howard (Baldy) Chard, 50, a former heavyweight boxer and now part-time bouncer at the Gerrard House Tavern, is acknowledged by most other bouncers to be the toughest in the business. Tavern owners intimidated by gangs of hooligans call him in at a free-lance hazard pay of a night to restore order. Yet Mr. Chard agrees it is "tact, not toughness, that pays off in the bouncing profession." "You gotta keep using the old he said. Like every other Toronto bouncer, he finds drunken women the most difficult to handle. "When they're deep in the sauce, some ladies develop a tramp' earthy vocabulary you wouldn't believe." Mr. Chard says bouncing can be lucrative. He recently acquired his own discotheque. LACKS MENTALITY Criminal insanity is the lack of mental capacity to do or ab- stain from doing a particular act; inability to distinguish right from wrong. insurance schemes show loss By THE CANADIAN PRESS In 1946, T. C. Douglas, then premier of Saskatchewan, in- troduced a government-owned and operated automobile in- surance plan. "The one thing 1 want to im- press upon you is that the gov- ernment does not stand to make a single dollar out of the the premier said at the time. Now the New Democratic of Mr. Douglas' Co-operative Com- monwealth Federation forms govern- ments in British Columbia, Manitoba and Saskatchewan and all have in- surance plans. The fact that the govern- ment is not making any money, often losing it, now is a drawback. Bill Bennett, leader of the B.C. Social Credit Party, says the Insurance Corp. of B.C. which handles Auto- plan, will show a deficit at the end of its first year, March 1. B.C. Premier Dave Barrett says a deficit of less than million is more accurate and Health Minister Dennis Cocke, a member of the ICBC board, says even that figure is too high. The Manitoba Public Insur- ance Corp. which started in November, 1971, earned million in premiums for the fiscal year ending Oct. 31, 1973 and received claims worth about million. The annual income from premiums in Saskatchewan is about million and, in the 1974-75 licence period, there were about claims valued at Alberta, the only western province without government- operated auto insurance, has no plans to introduce it. "Neighboring provinces that have gone into insurance are finding it a rather expen- sive said an Alberta highways ministry of- ficial. All three provinces will fi- nance part of the insurance plan with funds transferred from gasoline taxes. When B.C. passed legisla- tion to start the plan last March, it proposed to transfei the equivalent of 10 cents a gallon in gasoline tax to add about to the insurance fund. In Saskatchewan, about three cents a gallon will provide about million an- nually for insurance. And Manitoba announced recently it proposes a two- cent-per-gallon insurance tax on gasoline.
