Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 16, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta CA. Back Home again and with all the snow around here we could not help but think ol you all. Happy Shovellers we called you last winter. By the way, if you meet Scoutcr witli a quarter-past six look just think of us after all the long bus ride. Yes, we were around Western Ontario as the next phase follow- ing our sojourn in Ottawa. Look up your atlas and run your finger along from Ottawa to Kingslon to Toronto to London, Out. Actually we honied in on Glen- coe '.vest of London. You who have never seen the East would gasp it you found yourself on the MacUoiialrt-Carticr divided speedway between Kingslon Torinilo. It is like the old story of a similar speedway near Los Angeles where the sign says "Speed limit 100 mites per hour. Fords do your best.'' You get glimpses of large quantities of water as you ap- proach Kingston and. the build- ings along that way are white limestone. This was the early home of Sir .lolin A. MacDonald, first prime minister of Canada From there the highway was divided and the traffic quicken- ed. Trees were far scattered ant green fields were open ant green. Exits were marked long before the turn-offs. Toronto's sky-line was very impressive and huge factories rose on left and right. Streets seemed, end less so we were most relieved to find the bus driver did know his way. After a quick lunch and 2 change of buses were of. to London which is as you maj know. London in the Hush, no London in the FOR. The ap proach to that centre was mps like the trip into the Britisr counterpart with much moi oticeanle woods. The whol ity is noted for its tree-Una (reels and lovely parks. Th ext stage out to Glencoe ome trees but more farmlan vilh great fields of corn, eac armsiead being marked b ;reat silos. We got off at Strati iuhi to find a pickup with it side lettered, SI. II. Wcekes ar Son. My cousin bade us we come and proceeded to whis is off to The Maples, my fat er's old home. V For the next few days v rested, looked about and m more cousins. We even travc Wasnodi among winners SPARWOOD (HNS) A former Fernie resident, Rich- ard Wasnock, was among gold winners chair Olympics in Germany. in Ihe Wheel- held recently Canadian athletes experienc- ed the toughest international competition ever. The B.C. rcp- resenlatives to the Canadian team brought home three gold medals, two silver and one ed through SI. Thomas, Dell and a score of other places tl most of which had mere nam on a map to us, to near Po Rowan. We did pass many fa lories but the chief impressii we had was of tobacco fiel each with six, eight or mo granary like tobacco curii buildings. In many there we open windows that clearly vealed the ripening leaves. Around Delhi tobacco is so plentiful, we were told, that farmers had closed off their bee-keeping as the'honey tast- ed of tobacco. This crop, we understand, lakes more out of the land than mosl crops, thus making necessary plenty of fer- tilizer. Corn raising is so different from wheat farming out West. It requires specialized machin- ery. The ensilage for the silos is" cut out in the fields and blown back into special wagons. These are towed into the silo and detached. One man hooks up to tile power take-off and the load is blown up 100 feet or less into the huge concrete silos. This ensilage is fed to beet animals brought from the prairies to be finished and marketed. After a happy but short visit we moved off lo Mitchell on Ihe AID HOSPITAL Members of the picture Butte Order of the Royal Purple donate a choir and head-rest to the Piclure Butte Hospital. It is for use with ihe whirlpool bath. Head nurse Mrs. Rose Moriyama receives a cheque from Mrs. Hazel Fletcher, past hon- ored royal lady, and Mrs. Morjorie Walso n, honored royal lady. -S. P.
