Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 11, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta By CA. Weekes Now Scouting moves to tl outdoors where the action i Since our motto is be prepare a few hints will be thrown 01 to help the beginner whether h be Scouter, Advisor or Akel It is inevitable error's, ofte caused by over confideno arise. We start from the has: principle that Scouts, Adventur ers and Cubs are conservation ists and anti-pollutionists. For an overflight hike tber must be care. Green trees, es pecially in south Alberta, ar not to be needlessly cut dpwi or disfigured. Always try to lay out a compact campsite which shoul be chosen with the essentials WOOD, WATER and SHELTER in ittrid. A patrol requires on well-ijuilt fire-pit away froj danger of tree roots and over hanging branches. Put a tarp or fly (plasti sheeting will do) over this Pitch the tents with care afte clearing the ground to be cov ered. Remember spring snow i weighty and the canvas need to be securely lashed so it can not sag. Early camping often involves weather precautions. TASK FORCE When you hit camp divide up your task force; some will se up camp tents, some attend tc .the hygienic arrangements Cooks get things ready for an early meal. That means a wow supply and water for cooking and wash up, not just a fire. There must be a wet pit, dry pit and a latrine, even for an overnight camp. Cut out the sod and set it to one side. When all is over all dug-up places are filled in and ALL ashes and food scraps com- pletely obliterated. Tins and FOIL should be well burned the tins bashed and the whole mess buried. Pull up all tent pegs and with any unused poles neatly stacked for some future wood supply. As the late Lord Baden Pow- O Rumpus Room Carpet Famous Outdoor fibre with rubber back.

Phone 327-5777 ell used to say: "Leave not ing and be sure to thank tl campsite owner." Never be a dirty camper. A PURPOSE Go to camp or on your hil with a purpose. Know what yi want to do, go where you ca do it both there arid on tl way to and from the chosen o jective. This is the result of fe planning. The menu must be made meal-by-meal and day-by-da ahead of time. Avoid foods that are pure lui uries and concentrate on plaf necessities. Boys like well-coo] ed hearty meals. Take plenty grub. Always make sure you camp has salt, matches, a least one good axe (avoid ha chets) and a shovel. One camping book has an ex cellent idea for when you re turn. Take all your gear out i the back yard and sort it inl three piles: constant use, in frequent use and little or n use. You soon find out what I leave home next time. You wi notice I have said nothin about clothing, bedding an Jther essentials. That can d for another time CAMPOREE So much for helpful hints Scouts and Adventurers of Fort tfacleod, Granum, Stavely an are having thei Camporee May 16-17-18 at the kiide site just outside Foi Macleod.

Sixteen far-sighted businessmen started Imperial Oil in the town of London, Ontario. We also started in London. On March 18th, 1864, some sixteen years earlier.- That was the day 25 pioneer businessmen held the first meeting of what is now Canada Trust It was held in the. room above MacFie's Store. And they opened our first office in a small brick building just behind that store. Now that has all passed. The people.and the building's and the events of the day are Canadian history. But the approach of our 25 founders still lives on in pur present company philosophy: "To bring the maximum amount of energy and in- telligence to bear on the project in order to most effectively serve the client." Which is exactly what we've done. Now" after following it for over a century, we're one of Canada's largest trust companies with more branches coast to coast than anyone else. And our philosophy of service has made it all possible. Service. Service for every financial need. We urge you to try a free sample of it. Just phone or come in. CANADA TRUST ;
