(Special) Cfanbrook retail merchant section of the Chamber of Com- merce hit a peak participation in its unique two-hour annual July Pyjama Night. This was the fifth and run- away success with an esti- mated night-clad custom- ers prowling bargains in down- town shops from 7th to 13th Avenues reserved for pyjama- clad only. Boggle-eycrl lourisls enroute to Die Calgary Stampede brew- ed up their own miniature stampede to rush to their molels and undress to get in on the fantastic values for the night-clad. Bikini pyjama participants showed a fine garnish of goose- pimples though otherwise ap- preciative whistle-bait for the cold, sweater-type weather. A more comfortable granny- gown duo of ladies with a leashed beagle drew as much attention street-marketing the birdseed they found in a hard- ware store grab-bag. The 12Ui Avenue shopping centre swarmed in its 20 retail outlets, and the chamber chuck- wagon ran out of supplies af- ter 800 doughmut-pop snacks midway in the spree.

Word still comes in about pring wind-ups to busy winter seasons and preparations for appy days at Cainp Impcesa. Also the thoughts of many, in- luding yours truly, are centre- ng on the Fifth Alberta Jam- reree at Camp Woods, in our Scout Camp on Syl- Lake. The Moccasin Telegraph brings word of wilderness camps on Lake Chester west of Calgary. These apparently are run jointly by the Boy Scouts of Canada and the YMCA. Scouter Ken Budd of Van- couver is camp chief. From across the Atlantic in Holland's famous city of Nijme- gen comes detail of the sixtieth anniversary of the Kcizer Karel Groep.

A recent jaunt to Calgary re- sulted in a very happy visit with Fred G. Forster now re- tried from Hie SATT staff after a long and useful career While our first association with this old Scouter was as a Scout in the Sixth Edmonton (the Sing- ing Sixth) of which he was S.M., it later extended to the Sixth Rover Crew. Later lie saw Scouting action on the West Coast before moving lo Leth- bridge where he was S.M. and With further regard Lo High River it is noted (hat scouting has flourished there for over 50 years, thanks lo scouter Tom Betton. This grand old scouter is still with the scout move- ment and is the troop chaplain. Scouter Kurt Seel, former district commissioner of the grizzly district, is keeping ac- tive still in and round the Cal- gary region. He is staff natural- ist in the National Parks Ser- later Many district commissioner, who were in Scouting there during the days of the Second World War will remem- ber him.

Again we were privi leged to visit them and their leaders in their lu'deaway, truly a wonderful site for cub camp- ing. The secret of Stavely's suc- cess is the excellence of their camp staff and the co-operation of district staff, leaders, par ents and boys. This year the camp akcla was Mrs. K. Carl son with assistants Mrs. M, Grubb and Mrs. B. Nelson. Also assisting were Mrs. S. Wilson and Miss .G Robmson. The kitchen was manned by Mrs A. Alsgaid, Mrs. M. Johnson, Mrs. A. Fancy and Mrs. H, Johnson. Few, if any, cubs and leaders eat as well as those present at this happy camp. Oscar Schotloski, oldtimer, and helper par excellence, was on hand to prepare the camp and help keep tiie camp up to ifs high standard. Very notice- able was a brand-new kitchen with a roofed-over eating sec- tion outside. Scout leaders Dave Lynn, Bill Malchow and Ted Malchow were on hand to help, while Robbie Lynn and Lee Robinson were scouls-at-large to help where cubs ate a bit too young. Part of (lie camp fun was tile challenge fastball game between the boys and the leaders. Thanks to the um- pire and their athletic skill the leaders did triumph. Swim- ming was popular in the fa- cilities available in Willow Creek. Hikes and other outdoor activities gave the boys fun and good appetites. The cubs of the Cayley pack are wonderful singers thanks to the training and practice with Mrs. B. Nelson. Around a campfire they pick up new songs in no lime at all.
