POT-LUCK By D'ARCY RICKARD These chaps and their 10- speed bikes, they really give me the gears. f was driving out to see the Magrath parade in my '59 Fire- ball. Going down the pot-hole coulee hill at 70 a fellow passed mo on his 10-speed. He must have been going 80 miles an hour. His white beard was flow- ing out behind him. Gee whiz! I was boozebamb- led! Can an old man on a bike pass me in my Fireball? I goosed It. Overtaking the pedlar, (peddler) I heard a clash of gears, like my wife's eggbeater in a can of marbles. Wham! Pow! Schmifftt! The Old guy veered off the highway, took out a barbed wire fence and thumped througli a hay- stack. What happened? I asked. "When you went by me, I thought my bike had he said. Don't ever put it in reverse again, I scolded. Yes, his feet were pushing the pedals 30 revolutions per foot. I guess with those gears you could climb the Bear's Hump at Waterton. Later I saw him reading the Lethbridge Her- ald's doctor column as he went motionless up a hill. He's prob- ably still going up. My ambition is to have a 10- speed. Right now I'm riding a second-hand girl's bike, compli- ments of Nicoline. I raced out ol the driveway the other day, trying dcsper ately to slick to the banana seat. Racing down 13lh Street, ran over a cigarette butt and got a flat. I wheeled it home, a bright blush on my ancien cheeks. Then I put a patch on it. Then another patch. Soon it was com plelely covered with "Christ mas seals." I pumped it up. "Gee, it's going m; wife says. "It was hard a minute ago.' "Well it's soft now." "Let's take it down to Ike and Mike's." Ike and Mike, the bike doc tors, gave it a new gall bladder But riding bicycles is tremen dous. People pedal past my house with babies in the bicycl baskets. Mom, dad and chil dren all pedal by. A guy and his girl frleni went by last evening with a radio strapped to a rear fender South Albertans are going bike-happy. If you don't have a 10-speed you're nothing. Soon they'll b build a bicycle path over the high level bridge. I'm thinking of asking the boss to trade in the company car for a 10-speed. And a special goodnight to Ike and Mike who look alike. Dr. Teran assumes post PINCHER CREEK (Special) Dr. Juan Teran took the oath of office as mayor of the town of Pincher Creek at the recent meeting. He was welcomed and cong- gratulated by councillor John Olyslager who had been acting mayor until the byelection. In welcoming Mayor Teran, Mr. Olyslager expressed the hope for a good relationship be- tween Dr. Teran and the coun- cil. Mayor Teran said he knew that his duties were clearly outlined by the act, but he felt one should have a sense of com- mitment to the public, in the spending and distribution of public funds; in planning for a better place to live. Throughout the coming meet- Ings routine bus'mess would be carried out but there must be a sense of direction as to the way the town should move, he said.

Ernie Boffa, retired, stopped briefly in Milk River to visit his brother-in-law E. McTaggart. Capt. Botfa added to the laur- els of, the Canadian bush pilots by his work prior lo and during the 'Second World War during which he performed valuable service for both the Canadian and American governments. He became known as "Bar- ren Lands Boffa" because of his knowledge of these regions and his ability to fly under dif- ficult conditions. He continued lo fly charter and mail trips for Canadian Pa- cific Airlines after the war but when they discontinued this service, he, not liking the "red tape" which fouled up ordinary commercial flying, retired from service although continu- ing to hold a Candian Pilots li- cence. He plans to reside at High River. It is a good thing that Scouts, and Cubs too, have heard, "A Scout smiles and whistles under all difficulties." These days when frequent rain closes down on a camp, or even when rain prevents a group from going to camp, the need to smile and whistle is urgent. Especially at camp the lead- ers are hard put to keep the boys busy and cheerful. This is easier to do in a Cub Village lodge at Camp Impeesa than f one is out "in the wild wet woods" under canvas. This is a time for story and long- A time for handicrafts, for specialized cooking and even good old-fashioned instruc- tion such as first aid with sim- ulated injuries. If the boys have rubber boots and shorts, warm jackets and raincoats, get them out for short hikes and games. Make an indoor campfire or [athcr round a healer-type stove and have stories acted out, riddles and rhymes. Hot cocoa or soup is a life-saver. Every leader should have wet vcathcr stunts and fun "up his ileeve." We recently had a wonderful -isit with the First Pincher 'reek Pack at Camp Impccsa. 'hey had some 42 Cubs under canvas. On hand was Scouter Tsiigi with six Pincher Creek Scouts and four from Blair- more. Akcla Boli Ncisli was ably as- ;isted by Sirs. Gwen Baxter, lim Doyle, llarvry Poller, fOrdon Erlandson, Ray Cej nd Karl Hassclman. The admiralty (all cooks rate ns admirals) consisted of four Chefs des Cuisine Mrs. Peg- gy Potter, Mrs. Carol Ncish, largo Hassclman. Hiking, wimmiiig, boating, fishing and :ating made a good program. To remedy a lack of flag- roles, the leaders and willing iclpers dug a good-siicd pit in vhich they set up a wonderful all melal flagpole with haly- ards and a Canadian flag. To make it a permanent fixture oncrclo was mixed and loured. We understand that Shell Oil Company had something lo do 'ilh Ibis mnrvcloiis.ncldilion lo Sknokiim Ylllnfir. Well-set in TUllciim Village, wo found Akcla Gricr with as- sistanls Ernie Abramcnlto, Fran Molnar, Alci Molnar, Vi Procuk, Rob and Perry Abra- Mcnko and 13 Cubs, all from Fort Macleod. What a scurry dividing up into cabin groups, unloading personal sleeping bags, exploring the ing the waterfront and all that boys have to do when they get to camp. The campfire was prepared and a program set up How those lads enjoyed the story ot, "The Dog That Could Po Karate." Camp administrator Ray Bahtis was on hand to help in every way possible as was Jim Van Wyck the waterfront direc tor. Yes, sir. There's fun in camp! Just in case some of you boys and leaders, parents and visit- ing friends are in Lclhbrtdgc and are inclined to visit region- al headquarters please remem- ber that the regional office is closed until Aug. 15 while the staff holidays. Congratulations go lo our good Scouter friend, Larry Trcmblay, who has left Water- ton Lakes Nalionnl Park for the new Khiancy Park in southwest Yukon. This new creation is just in process of formation. Officer TremblaY has found himself acting park superinten- dent, and "Lord High Every- thing Else" The Grizzly Dis- trict wish their former district commissioner the very best. Those in camp this summer may well believe that the camp song is "Raindrops Keep Fall- ing On My Head." We were over to Slavcly's camp on Wil- low Creek but Akcla Carlson was the only one there. It seems that heavy rain set off the Cub camp until the mid- week following. Unfortunately we could not get over for this year's Slavcly bay, a very real uid wonderful red-letter day lad to go unrecorded. We did so want lo hear Mrs, Barbara Vclson's newest Bongs for the park.

Return home NEW DAYTON (HNS) Mary Ann Fuller, Gwen Schoen and Sharon Selk returned from their trip with the Young Voy- ageurs which took 'them to Montreal, Quebec City, Ottawa and Edmonton.

While in Montreal they toured Man and His World and at- tended a major league baseball game between the Montreal Ex- pos and San Diego Padres. These girls will have the chance to return hospitality when a group of Ottawa young people arrive at Warner.
