The 500-pound baby bear and two others roamed around the Fort Churchill camp until a group of hunters took after them in jeeps. Capt York, shown here with his raw material for a bearskin rug, downed the. polar in two shots. One other bear was killed--the third escaped.

The theme for discussion will be "Can We be an asset to our community?" And each of the four townships are requested to submit the names of four students who, can attend the classes. Leonard Harman addressed the meeting on the many advantages, social, intellectual and financial, that farm forums have brought to the community.

Miss Edith Ferguson, of the Pro- vincial Radio Farm Forum, out- lined tht working of that organ- ization.

Wednes- day evening there will be a church building meeting for members and adherents. From the Citations "Heal Me, O Lord, and I shall be healed." Jer. 17:14, "lil fortable office, MATERIALS HUMANE SHELTER PROGRESS, SOCIETY COULD STILL USE AND EQUIPMENT Although driving rain, sleet and snow temporarily halted construc- tion work at the weeks end, the Oakville and District Humane So- clety's new animal shelter. had progressed to a point last week where only a few man hours of toil remainded to be put in before all outside work was completed. Situated at the most northern extremity of the society's three- acre tract at the end of Maple 'Ave., the structure will present an attractive frontal elevation of brick, donated by a well-wisher. The entrance, which will face a circular drive, opens into a. com- which in turn leads to a well lighted and com- modious animal room. Two large outdoor runs will be set up from the south exit of this room, while the north entrance will open into the shelters, garage and work shop. The modern lethal chamber is attached to the garage. A well has already been drilled to provide an adequate supply of water, while arrangements have been completed for the Hydro line in to the property. A bridge and roadway had been finished, prior to the advent of cold weather. Expressing appreciation for do- nations of building materials by interested residents, society dir ector Herb Merry told the Jour- nal that other materials and equip- ment could still be utilized. In the former category, he listed me- tal fence posts. and fencing, two inside doors and old lumber suit- able for rough flooring: Equip ment items that will be required a little later include a stove or Que- bec heater, coal shovel and scut- tle, brooms, pails and a snow 61 shovel, an office table, chairs and a bookcase, and a 'wash basin.

Br-r-r- 0ld man winter unleashed all his fury around Oakville last 'week-end with the result that everyone snuggled up to their radiators and read a good book for their weekend enjoyment. Well, anyhow, that's our excuse for the poor turnout at Teen Town Saturday night. And what hap- pened to all those people that wanted Saturday night dances? A little snowman tells us they brav- ed the storm to go to far off places like Brampton 2nd Georgetown. Let's make up our minds! The poor showing was offset, however by the wonderful music grinding of the "Watter's wax Works." All .the tops in pops is Pete's motto and he sure lives up to it. We like that new recording "Tennessee Waltz" hy Patti Page that Pete is featuring as well as Gord Jenkin's "Blowing Bubbles," Kay Star's "Ill Never Be Free," and for you hep-cats there's the Ames Brothers latest called "Oh Babe." Oh babe, what a collection and all on sale at Pete's record emporium too! Hearty congratulations to thoss Teen Towners who turned out to help at the Rotary Bingo. Anoth- er way to show that Teen Town is behind the arena fund 100 per- cent. Had an Intelligent young fellow tell us he didn't want a ticket to the Christmas Formal because he didn't have a tuxedo. Oh brother! f the dance called for the boys to wear tuxedos, we're afraid the turnout would be very small. For those fellows who are in the dark, the dress for the eyening will be suits or suit jackets. Af- ter all, this isn't the Ritz Ball. Best of luck to that intelligent group in Teen Town who call themselves students. We under- stand exams are in full swing at the High School and studying heads the list on their agenda. Do you smell rubber burning? Should the storm clear before Friday we hope you will remem- ber that Teen Town is still op- erating and will return to its reg- ular Friday night dance. SUGGESTION Early to bed and early to rise will yield the right answers to most of the whys.
