Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 28, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Page 29 Be cautious when pulling a trailer Inspection A detachment of mounted NWMP members lines up for inspection outside Fort Walsh in 1898. How to take a good photo Everybody likes good pictures and almost everybody takes some good ones. But try and make all your holiday pictures good ones because today's pic- tures can not only give you, enjoyment now but will also provide you with solid enjoyment for many years to come. To obtain consistently better pictures all you have to do is use a bit of care and avoid some of the most common mistakes. 1. Blurred pictures usually caused by camera movement. Hold the camera steady and squeeze the shutter, releasing slowly. If your camera has an adjustable shutter, use shutter speeds of 1-60 or faster. 2. Double exposure wind your film immediate- ly after taking a picture. 3. Subject blurry or out of focus caused by taking pictures too close with cameras (box type) which are not designed for this. Use a close-up lens. 4. Picture too dark or not enough light use a flash bulb to fill in heavy shadows or a larger aper- ture opening. Boat trailering is nine parts caution and one part skill, according to the ex- perts. Caution begins in your driveway. Make certain the tie-downs are and the gear is evenly dis: trfbuted in the boat. If you own one of the larger rigs, you'll prob'ably need a side- view mirror to permit maximum visibility while driving. If you've never traiiered a boat before, take a few short practice runs around your neighborhood. You'll soon notice that it takes more room to stop, and you have to swing wider on turns. Depending on the size of your rig, your car's pickup will be slower. Don't gun the engine, but accelerate evenly up to regular highway speeds. When passing another automobile, make sure you have more than enough room to swing safely back into your lane. As soon as you have the "feel" of your rig, you're ready to take to the open road. There's only one trick to backing up your trailer on the launching ramp. Remember the trailer will swing in the opposite direc- tion you turn the steering wheel. if you want the trailer to swing left, you must turn to the right, and vice versa. Back up slowly. Too much speed can cause the trailer to .jack knife, resulting in damage to the boat, car and trailer. Have a partner guide you to the wafer's edge. Remove the rear tie- downs, tilt your outboard motor up and lock it in position. Continue to back slowly until the water line nears the trailer wheel hub. As a general rule, don't immerse the wheel hub in either fresh or salt water. When sliding the boat off the trailer, hold onto the bow line to prevent the boat from drifting into open water. One last word of caution to smokers. When trailer- ing a rig, never throw a lighted cigarette out the window.
