W.H. TOBEY RETIRES AS PGE SUPERINTENDENT
After eight years as general manager of the Pacific Great Eastern
Railway, Mr. WiIliam H. Tobey is retiring. Now 68, Mr. Tobey feels that he deserves a well earned rest, and hopes to find a little more time to play golf.
Eight years ago upon the death of Robert Wilson, the P.G.E. found
itself in need of a new general manager. Trained as a civil engineer;
Mr. Tobey acquired his first experience in railway work during the construction of the Grand Railway. When the Canadian National took over the Grand Trunk,
Mr. Tobey stayed with the railway and helped to run the railway which he had helped to build. He had become. superintendent of the Smithers division when he left to become general manager of the P.G.E.
Mr. Tobey's chief trouble was one common to us - a limited budget. And the P.G.E. as a railway suffered from the financial limitations. However, Mr. Tobey can be proud of what he has achieved; especially during last year. Old army huts were purchased and brought on scows from Nanaimo. Remodelling them resulted
in new dwellings so that much needed shop assistants could be employed. Bunk houses for engine men and trainmen have been supplied from these, as well as a
new larger laundry. A. new freight shed and freight office is undergoing renovation. Most noticeable of all to townspeople is the new office building and pleasing color scheme which has replaced the drab brown and cream of former years.
At present the Jamieson Construction Company is straightening the worst curves along the line. Cement retaining walls are being built in many places along Anderson and Seton Lakes.
Rolling stock too, has improved greatly during the last years. Four new engines have been purchased to take care of the increased volume of business. For work in the local yards a diesel engine was bought this Spring, with rumors of more engines to come.
The local carshop has done a great deal to add to the efficiency of the P.G.E. Many of the cars were purchased second hand, and to shop carpenters fell the task of remodelling these cars. The re-conditioned sleepers are painted in light colors and upholstered in soft shades. In recent months a coffee bar car has been put into use - a distinct innovation in railway cars.
As business all along the line seems to be booming, it is to be regretted
that Mr. Tobey will no longer be at the herm in the better days to come.
His successor, Mr. J. A. Kennedy took over officially on October 1st. Forty-nine years ago he started as office boy with the C.P.R. and rose to become superintendent of the Esquimalt and Nanaimo Railway. Earlier this year he retired from this post, and is now the new general manager of the P.G.E.
SHOWER HELD FOR ANNE REAMBRAULT
A shower in honor of Anne Reambrault was held at the home of Mrs. J. R. Buchanan.
A large number of friends and well-wishers spent the evening playing bingo; finishing up with a hilarious, contest.
Helping the bride-elect to open her many lovely gifts were her attendants. Miss Olga Sullivan and Miss Patricia Robinson. Hostesses for the enjoyable evening were the two attendants, Mrs. H. Butterworth and Mrs. J. R. Buchanan.
LINDA'S COFFEE SHOP OPENS
Catering entirely to evening trade, Mrs Martineow's coffee shop opened for business on Monday, September 20th.
The remodelled grocery store presents a new and bright aspect to hungry customers. Newly painted and finished within the red checked curtains and red stools give the place a cheerful appearance. The exterior of the building is receiving the first coat of paint it has ever had - a soft yellow which brightens the whole block. Serving only light lunches, Mrs Martinow hopes to appeal to the evening crowds. Her eating place is of special interest to men who work until a late. hour.

PULP MILL WINNERS IN SOFTBALL LEAGUE
The Softball Season for 1948 has now come to a close. Some difficulty has been experienced in playing off the games, due to the bad weather and the fact that many of the players have been working long hours on the modernization progarmme in the Plant. However, in spite of these difficulties, the games were thoroughly enjoyed throughout both by players and spectators, and in the final games the enthusiasm of the partisans of the various teams rose to a high pitch, so that in spite of the cold weather there were good crowds at all the games.
The League was won by the Pulpmill Team.
In the Playoffs, the Pipe Shop eliminated the Pulpmill, and the Beach Plant eliminated the Machine Shop, in the semi-finals (two games out of three in each case).
In the Finals (three games out of five) the scores were as follows:
First Game - Bleach Plant 7, Pipe Shop 5.
Second Game - Pipe Shop 4, Beach Plant 2.
THird Game - Pipe Shop 4, Beach Plant 2.
Third Game - Bleach Plant 9, Pipe Shop 6.
Fourth Game - Pipe Shop 7, Bleach Plant, 0.
Fifth and Final Game - Bleach Plant 6, Pipe Shop 0.
The six players with the highest batting averages in the League for the season are as follows: Freisen (Pulpmill .403; Miller (Bleach Plant) .390; Francis (Bleach Plant) .390; Doug Anderson (Machine Shop) .378; Brunn (Pulpmill) .375; Moretto (Machine Shop) .371.
The batting averages for the Teams are: Pulpmill .268; Bleach Plant .229; Machine Shop .223; Pipe Shop .202.
All teams are to be congratulated on a good clean series of games, and we look forward to the resumption of their activities next Spring.
SQUAMISH TOWING CO. ERECTING QUONSET HUT
The Squamish Towing and Contracting Co. are erecting the town's first Quonset hut.
This building, purchased from the National All Steel Building, is being erected by De Wolfe Construction Co., who are associated with the former firm. Before erection began, a cement wall 8" wide set with anchor bolts formed the "perimeter of the proposed building which is 40 feet wide by 60 feet long. When weather permits a full concrete floor will be laid.
The steel trusses, semicircular when erected, are connected by laminated purloins. The trusses and purloins are interlocked by metal screws, after the metal window frames have been put into position. Corrugated sheet iron is laid over the purloins. The purloins, being laminated, have a space between each peace, which has a wavy champfer that locks the nails driven through the sheet metal into this space. The building has metal shutter-type ventilators in each end and Yukon-type ventilators in the roof. Doors of corrugated sheet steel and windows have steel frames. The entire erection contains not one single piece of wood. The insurance rate on such a metal is practially nil. The completed building has an unobstructed ceiling 20 feet high.
This type of building forming army encampment huts was the only one to withstand the Florida hurricane of September 1947.
As soon as the De Wolfe Construction completes this building, they will proceed to the P.G.E. Shops where they are to erect a multiple Quonset hut, comprising of two sections, 40' by 80' each. The completed structure will form an addition to the car shop.
In future, the Squamish Towing Co. will be the new agents between Squamish and Lillooet for Quonset buildings. They will erect the structures from foundation to finish
anywhere in their district.
Some people can hear a rattle in their cars quicker than one in their heads.

The Woodfibre Community Club is holding a Masquerade Dance on Saturday, October 30th. Further details will be announced later, including details of arrangements made for the hiring of costumes.
BEAR CUB CHASED ON MAIN STREET
A young bear was the cause of a flurry of excitement among children on their way to school one morning recently. Driving one of the Squamish Transfer trucks, Irwin Thorne chased the animal up the main street in front of the P.G.E. houses. The frightened bear attempted to climb the fence into Mr. Stewart's yard. Unable to
do so, it again made a futlle effort to enter Mr. VaIde's yard. Finally the bear entered the woods on the dyke between the drug store and the Frank Scott residence.
SHOWER FOR BRIDE ELECT JOYCE CARSON
Miss Joyce Carson was the guest of honour at a miscellaneous shower held in the Parish Hall on Tuesday, September 14th.
The gift table was prettily decorated with crepe paper, while brilliant fall flowers set off the guest of honour's table to advantage.
Those attending enjoyed playing whist during the evening with Mrs Alitt winning first prize and Mrs Alex Munro the booby prize. While the tables were being arranged for refreshments, Miss Kathleen Cole played a number of selections on the piano. After partaking of a delectable array of sandwiches and cakes, Miss Carson opened her many lovely gifts.

By Elizabeth Richmond
Fotheringhay is a quiet littlee English village near the eastern boundary of the county of North amptonshire. Its long, wide main street is flanked by fields and most of its residents follow agricultural occupations. At the end of this street there is a green mound rising from a meadow which interests every visitor. The mound is all that is left of Fotheringhay Castle, in the banqueting hall of which the tragic Mary Queen of Scots was beheaded in 1587.

LOCAL COUPLE EXCHANGE MARRIAGE VOWS HERE
At a quiet ceremony at noon Saturday, Anne May Reambrault, daughter of Mrs R. Sherrington of Manchester, England, exchanged marriage vows with Angus McRae; eldest son of Mr and Mrs A. McRae of Squamish.
The service took place at the home of Mr and Mrs McRae, the Reverend C. Addyman officiating.
Shimmering pink satin fashioned the bride's lovely gown. Straight lines in front accentuated the fullness in the back and the sleeves were slim and pointed over the wrists. The neckline featured a yoke of pink net with a wide bertha collar of pink satin over the shoulders. The full length veil of pink net fell from a Queen Mary of Scots headdress of matching satin.
Given in marriage by Mr J.R. Buchanan, the bride carried a bouquet of Talisman rouses and white carnations.
Miss Patricia Robinson as maid of honor wore a full skirted gown of gold moire with shirred neckline and puffed sleeves. Miss Olga Sullivan as bridesmaid wore apple green taffeta with full short sleeves and bouffant skirt. Both attendants had matching headdresses similar to that of the bride, and carried bouquets of bronze and yellow chrysanthemums.
Mr Finley McRae was his brother's best man.
The quiet ceremony was immediately followed by a large reception after which Mr and Mrs McRae left by boat for a brief honeymoon.
For travelling the bride wore a blue-grey gabardine suit with dusty pink topcoat of gabardine. Her hat of grey felt featured pink ostrich feathers. Grey gloves with wine accessories completed her costume. Her corsage was of wine gladioli and white baby chrysanthemums.
Upon their return to Squamish, the couple will live in one of McKenzie's apartments.
"Did you get home all right after the part last night?"
"Fine, thanks, except that as I was turning into my street some idiot stepped on my fingers."

INSPECT ONE AT YARWOOD'S
FIRE SIREN CAUSES FLURRY OF EXCITEMENT
The wailing of the fire siren last week caused a rush to the scene of the smoke. Fortunately, it was not serious.
A barrel of tar, which was being heated for sidewalk repairs in front of the Newport Hotel caught fire near the Public Works shed. Fearing a sudden shift in the wind
which would send the flames towards the building, Sandy Fowler turned in an alarm.
Instead of wetting the hose the fire brigade managed to move the barrel to safe distance from any building, where it was allowed to burn itself out.
A Scout Troop is being formed in Woodfibre under the leadership of Mr A. Greatrex, who is an Eagle Scout, assisted by Mr V. Bidin and Mr J. Sobtka. Branch No. 181 of the Canadian Legion has agreed to sponsor this troop and it is hoped that they will be able to get started at an early date. The boys of Woodfibre are very fortunate in having a Scout Master of Mr Greatrex qualifications, and we all wish him every success in this undertaking.

QUICK THINKING SKIPPER SAVES SHIP FROM SANDBAR
Fast thinking on the part of the skipper of the tug "Gleeful" saved the U.S.S. Capilano from puling up on the sandbar between the dock and the barge ship.
While a strong south wind was blowing, the stern line of the Capilano was loosened before the bow line. The wind immediately swung the stern around. The Gleeful's skipper threw a line to a crew member of the larger boat, and proceeded to pull the Capilano into deeper water.
LOCAL CHURCHES BUSY
On Sunday, October 3rd, St. John's Anglican Church held its Harvest Home Festival. The church was beautifully decorated with seasonal flowers and garden produce.
The Squamish United Church will hold a similar service on October 10th, the decoration of which is to be largely in the hands of the Sunday School pupils.
On October 17th Mr A.E. White will conduct, in the absence of the Reverend Addyman, who will be in Woodfibre for the opening of the new church there.
Both the United and Anglican Sunday Schools are now in full swing. On October 3rd the United Church Sunday Echool held its annual Rally Day service which featured a small stringed orchestra and a mandolin solo by Joanne Feschuk.
On Thursday, September 9, the Squamish Parent Teacher Association held its first meeting of the year.
A cordial welcome was extended to the three new members of the staff, but unfortunately only Mr. Hayes the new principal and honorary president of the P.T.A. was present.
Mr. Hayes reported that the school building is literally bursting at the seams. For this reason, the staff is advocating the erection of a new Junior-Senior High School to house Grades 7-12. As present classrooms are overcrowded, two additional teachers have been requested.
It was decided to hold a membership drive, November 1st to be the closing date. The class having the largest membership of parents by that date is to receive a magazine
subscription. Another picture, suitable for younger children, is to be purchased as a monthly attendance prize.
Light refreshments were served to give parents and teachers an excellent opportunity to mix.
At the next meeting, to be held Thursday, October 7, the books purchased by the P.T.A. for the school library will be on display.
CANADIAN FOREIGN TRADE BREAKS RECORD
Canadian foreign trade reached record proportions during ths first half of 1948, with total merchandising imports and exports amounting to $2,671 million, an increase of $85 million over the corresponding period of 1947. Trading conditions in June, however, showed a drop in wheat and flour shipments to the United Kingdom, following last year's short crop.

MISS JOYCE CARSON MARRIES WILLIAM DAWSON
At a pretty wedding solemnized Monday evening, September 20th at 7:30 p.m. in St. John's Anglican Church, C.H. Gibes united in marriage Elizabeth Joyce, third daughter of Mr and Mrs George Carson to William H Dawson, third son of Mr and Mrs H. Dawson, third son of Mr. and Mrs. H. Dawson.
Mr. Cleveland Dawson was best man; and Mr. Richard Dawson and Mr. Bruce Carson were ushers.
Given in marriage by her father, the bride wore a gown of white satin with a net overskirt and a bustle effect in the back. Her full length-veil fell ffom a headdress
of net. She carried a bouquet of red roses and baby chrysanthemums.
The maid of honor, Miss Ione Magee, wore mauve embossed satin with a net overskirt and carried carnations in two shades of pink.
The two bridesmaids were attired in moire; Miss Sheila Dawson, sister of the groom, wearing yellow, and Miss Betty Carson, sister of the bride, wearing green. Both

matching Dutch cap. She carried an old fashioned nosegay of rosebuds.
Mrs R. Cole played the wedding music, and Miss Kathleen Cole sang, "I'll Walk Beside You" during the signing of the register.
Following the ceremony a reception was held at the Parish Hall, where Mr. E. Carson proposed a toast to the bride.
For their brief honeymoon, the bride wore a dress of turquoise gabardine with matching wool topcoat and black accessories.
Members of the fair sex in Squamish looked hopefully at signs of activity around the vacant beauty parlor. Their hopes were fulfilled on September 22nd, when Mrs. Gladys Parks opened for business.
The old saying about never missing a thing until it is lost proved true in the case of the local hairdresser. Mrs J. Murnern opened for business where the Imperial Oil Station now stands, the ladieS of Squamish have had the services of a professional hairdresser; until Mrs. McIntyre left the business early in July of this year.
Ladies whose locks have become long and unruly are keeping Mrs Parks busy. For 21 years she has operated hairdressing parlors on Vancouver Island in Port Alberni, Courtenay and Ladysmith.
In addition to hairdressing, Mrs Parks carries a stock of notion and ladies ready-to-wear.

SOFTBALL CUP CHANGES HANDS
After spending a year with the Hardwoods, the softball cup donated by the B.P.O.E. Lodge has changed hands and is now in possession of the Squamish Legion.
The winning team had to work hard to obtain the cup, as the Hardwoods team led the Softball League steadily during the whole season.
In the playoffs, the Legion and the Hardwoods each won two games, so teh last game was a real battle, with the Legion winning. unfortunately for the Hardwoods, their pitcher was handicapped by two injured ribs.
Figures compiled at army headquarters reveal that 475 Chinese-Canadians, 165 Japanese-Canadians and 3,090 Indians served with the Canadian Army during the Second World War. The majority served overseas.

HOSPITAL PLAN EXPLAINED
Premium payments under the government's hospital insurance plan will begin shortly, and for approximately 80% of the population hospital insurance will be a new experience. The remaining 20% are now covered by other plans.
Explaining why the six month's prepayment, Dr. J.M. Hershey said:
Hospital insurance cards, proof of payment and eligibility, will be good for the first six months of 1949, and cannot be issued until one half-year's premium has been paid.
Prepayment is an important factor in guaranteeing general participation and is the best way of insuring continuation of the present low premiums.
Under the Hospital Insurance Act, payments to hospitals can be made only on account of persons who have actually paid premiums. Eligibility, therefore, must be established for over a million people by January 1.
The insurance card provides proof that a person has paid his premium and guarantees payment of the hospital bill by the Hospital Insurance Fund.
Prepayment protects the individual and his dependents during periods of unemployment when it may be difficult to pay premiums on the due date.
As to the instalment method, Dr. Hershey said this was for the convenience of those who wish to pay by this way, rather than having to make one payment.
After the three payments have been made by early December, covering a six-month period, a hospital insurance card will be issued entitling the contributor and his dependents to benefit up to June 30, 1949.

FALL FAIR ODDITIES
In reviewing the prizes at the Fall Fair a number of interesting items came to light.
Mrs Ross Barr entered in only seven classes and succeeded in winning first prize for each of her entries.
Ten year old Donna Sande led the children's awards to the extent of winning a special award for a crocheted doily which had to be entered in the adult's class as there was none for children.
Mrs Axen entered a sweater made of wool which she had spun herself, then did her own job of dying and finally knitted the garment.
For such garments, a handicraft class would be the ideal solution.
Mrs Henry Smith and her daughter, Mrs Claude Hartnell left on September 20 for Swan River, Manitoba where they will spend a month with Mrs A.M. Peyton, also arriving from England in 1901, Mrs Smith spent 13 years in Swan River. Now, after an absence of 25 years, she plans to renew old friendships.
MERCY FLIGHT FOR LOCAL CHILD
Betty Dent, nine year old daughter of Mr and Mrs L.F. Dent was flown to Vancouver by the Vancouver U-Fly Service on September 28th. The same evening she underwent an operation for appendicitis. She is recovering nicely and will soon be home again.
WOMEN'S AUXILIARY TO THE LEGION
At theri recent meeting the Women's Auxiliary to the Legion decided to launch a drive for foodstuffs for needy veterans overseas. It is hoped that the food thus collected will reach the veterans in time for Christmas. So dig in everyone, let's all donate a bit which means little to us but much to them, and make sure your donation is suitable for overseas shipping.
WAR VETERANS UNDER BC HOSPITAL PLAN
The position of war veterans under the B.C. Government Hospital Insurance Plan has been clarified.
All veterans must register. Only those who are completely covered by DVA under all circumstances will be exempt. There are only two classes of such veterans.
- DVA students, so long as they are still in training.
- Veterans in receipt of War Veteran's Allowance.
The dependents of these two categeries are not covered by DVA and, therefore, a premium must be paid on their behalf. The premium for a wife will be $15 per annum. For a wife and one dependent $24 per annum, and for more than one dependent, $36 per annum.

OBSERVE "BETTER PARRENTHOOD WEEK"
The men and women of tomorrow are the school children of today. The role that education plays in their every day lives is reflected in the relations between their parents and the teachers who are entrusted with the training of our school children.
The importance of co-operation between parents and teachers has resulted in the organization of Parent-Teacher Association groups all over the continent. Squamish is one of thousands of communities fostering this movement.
