CRANBROOK (&' p e c i a 1) -The 1900's Railway YMCA at Baker and Van Horne intersection, which subsequently served as Armories and for a year as a youth centre, is a happy swinging operation now. It has been occupied for the past six months by an affiliated Cranbrook Boys Club with top regulation age 14, and is directed by salaried Derrick Rotherm e 1 whose recreation training qualifications are from the RCAF in which he served. The Club depends heavily on volunteers who have rallied to the call on a number of fronts. The sizes and varieties of rooms in the three - storey frame building with adjoining drill hall make it appropriate for any chosen occupation for which there is a supervisor. Boys membership remains a constant 180, divided into seniors and juniors. Beta Sigma Phi sorority cleaned, painted, remodelled and curtained the senior boys' games room, first com p 1 e t e building improvement which has given the club a lift. Two "kid - proof" pool tables are being bought by proceeds from the boys' projects and service club help. Response by 40 boys to the quiet announcement of cooking sessions swamped the kitchen for a bit. There was an operating stove, and an appeal brought in two donated used refrigerators. Staples are donated by a trucking company, and everybody cooks so volunteer instructors are needed to help supervise. Rifle range training for juniors and seniors is scheduled to start soon in basement quarters, and fly tying and coin collecting groups are operating. Kinsmen, with donated roofing are getting the drill hall in usable shape for gymnasium sports.
