Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 11, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta By CA. Weekes Now Scouting moves to tfo outdoors where the action i Since our motto is be prepares a few hints will be thrown 01 to help the beginner whether h be Scouter, Advisor or Akelr It is inevitable error's, ofte caused by over confidence arise. We start from the basi 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 neal compact campsite which shoul be chosen with the essentials WOOD, WATER and SHELTER in ittrid. A patrol requires on well-Milt fire-pit away from 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 coy ered. Remember spring snow is 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 to .the hygienic arrangements Cooks get things ready for an early meal. That means a wow supply and water for cooking and wash not just a fire. There must be a wet pit, a dry pit and a latrine, even for an overnight camp. Cut out the sod pd 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 anc 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.

Know what you want to do, go where you can do it both there arid on the way to and from the chosen ob- jective. This is the result of feal planning. The menu must be made up meal-by-meal and day-by-day ahead of time. Avoid foods that are pure lux- uries and concentrate on plain necessities. Boys like well-cook- ed hearty meals. Take plenty of grub. Always make sure your camp has salt, matches, at least one good axe (avoid hat- chets) and a shovel. One camping book has an ex- cellent idea for when you re- turn. Take all your gear out in '.he back yard and sort it into ihree piles: constant use, in- frequent use and little or no use. You soon find out what to .eave home next time. You will notice I have said nothing about clothing, bedding and other essentials. That can do for another time. :AMPOREE So much for helpful hints, icouts and Adventurers of Fort iladeod, Granum, Stavely and "larcsholm are having their Camporee May 16-17-18 at the uide site just outside Fort 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 vyas 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 ;
