The swimming pool and the skating arena are lo- cated across the street in the park which was originally pro- vided as a park for recreation at the time Ihe town was sur- veyed.

It was a recent regional de- cision to reorganize a few of Is constituent districts where big training session the effort and cost of operation last February there is a fore- seem to have bogged down a secable increase in the quantity and quality of winter camping. Back at home there is a lot more shovelling and the general chores of those who like to keep warm. Speaking of all this reminds our Scouting and Cubbing fra- ternities to look for a chance to do that Group Good Turn. Ev- eryone can find a neighbor where age or illness gives a wonderful chance to do a GOOD TURN. Come on, you fellows! Let's DO IT!

Warm expressive hu- mor along with the bubbling good spirits of the delegates brought out m a n y an answer long awaited in connection with the newer aspects of today's boy-centred programs. Saturday's luncheon was wel attended though the evening's banquet saw a much widei representation of the Regions citizens. Mrs. A.
