BANK OF NOVA SCOTIA OPENS BRANCH OFFICE AT WOODFIBRE
The Squamish Branch of the Bank of Nova Scotia opened its doors for business, on August 16. This community has long felt the need of a bank and a hearty welcome is extended to the staff.
Mr T.G. Dunn, the manager, comes to his new post after a year spent on the prairie as a hiring manager for the Bank of Nova Scotia. He will occupy the neatly equipped office just to the left of the entrance.
In the teller's cage you will find Mr J.W. Patterson, who is chief teller and comes here from Vancouver. The third member of the staff is a familiar figure in Squamish. Eighteen months ago Ione Magee left for Vancouver to work in the Granville and Hastings Street Branch of the Canadian Bank of Commerce. Now she is back to work as stenographer and ledger keeper.
WELL KNOWN WOODFIBRE MAN BURIED AT SQUAMISH
Resident of Squamish and Woodfibre since 1917, Ernest Clester passed away at his Woodfibre residence on August 23rd.
Mr. Clester was born in Wichita, Kansas, in 1988 and came to Canada while still a boy. He originally came to Woodfibre in 1920 and soon afterward joined the staff of the Whalen Company, predecessor of the present British Columbia Pulp and Paper Co. Mr Clester was associated with many developments of the Woodfibre plant and townsite.
Survived by his wife, Mrs Claire Clester of Woodfibre and 3 stepsons,
Donald, Mark and Hector Bellamy, Mr. Clester was a member of the Anglican Church.
Funeral service was conducted at the grave-side at Squamish by Reverend C.H. Gibbs. Pall bearers were W.A. Bain, O. Van Horlick, O. Briggs, D. Inglish, G. Hopper and J. L. Ferguson, all of Woodfibre.
TOWN'S SMALLEST CAR ATTRACTS ATTENTION
The honor of owning the smallest car in Squamish has passed from Mr Lyle McPherson to Mr Bill Manners.
In direct contrast to the heavy, cumbersome vehicles which are so common here, the new midget is a 1/4 ton Crosely pickup in a shiny green color.
Reputed to be easy on gas, these small cars may easily start a new trend.
LOCAL COUPLE TO RESIDE IN NEW WESTMINSTER
Mr. and Mrs. Stanley Mills, after living in Squamish for nearly five years, have left for New Westminster where Mr Mills is now working.
On Saturday, August 28th, friends and neighbors gathered to surprise them at their home. Among those present were Mr and Mrs R. Slack, Mr and Mrs Garrison, Mr and Mrs E. Aldridge, Mr and Mrs T. Halvorson, Mr and Mrs M. Halvorson, Mr and Mrs L. Gorsuch, Mr and Mrs R. Watson, Mr and Mrs N. Feschuk, Mr Dennis Downer and Mr Denny Smythe. The guests of honor were the recipients of a souvenir wooden tray on pedestals.
The following Wednesday the home of Mrs R. Slack was the scene of a baby shower for Mrs K. Kennedy and a farewell party for Mrs Mills. Needless to say, both guests of honour were thoroughly surprised. Among the ladies honouring the two guests were Mrs S. Frost, Mrs J. Knight, Mrs R. Farquharson, Mrs. P. Drenka, Mrs W. Bazley, Mrs R. Slack and Mrs L. Budgell.
Mrs. Kennedy was the recipient of a number of lovely gifts, while the whole group gave Mrs Mills a beautiful vase.

WOODFIBRE LABOR DAY EVENT DRAWS LARGE ATTENDANCE
By V. Lilwall
The last big event of the summer season attracted young and old to participate in the Labor Day program at Woodfibre.
The day got off to a good start at 9:10 am when the boat race got under way, on one of the few bright and sunny days we have had this year. The race was arranged to cater to all types of boats, the prize being given to the entrant who came closest to estimating the time it would take him to run the course, all watches and clocks being left behind at the beginning of the race. The route was a triangle from the small boat float to near the gravel pit, over to Watts Point, and back to the float, and the times estimated varied from 45 minutes to one hour, 50 minutes and 15 seconds.
Apparently the owners of the Woodfibre boats fail to do themselves justice, as in the case of each of the nine entrants the time taken to reach the float was less than the time estimated. The entries were: J. Lawson, W. Knowles, L. Bickell, H. Golden, V. Brait, D. Anderson, K. & N. Erickson, L. Labonte, and C. Bellis. The winner was Dave Anderson, who completed the course in 56 minutes and 35 seconds, with an estimate of 59 minutes; second prize went to C. Bellis (Time 53 minutes, Estimate 58 minutes); third, Jack Lawson (Time 30 minutes, Estimate 45 minutes); fourth, Vic Brait (Time 54 minutes, estimate one hour and 15 minutes).
The markers at the corners of the triangle were Mr W.A. Bain and Mr F. Mullin Jr., and Mr J. Henderson acted as patrol. The prizes were presented later in the day, the winner received a barrel of gasoline which was donated by J. Haar and C. Lea.
The boat race was followed by the children's sports up at the Ball Park.
The following is a list of the first, second and tkprd prize winners:
Boys - 8 years and under - Allan Johnson, Johnny Chadwick, Glen
Girls - 8 years and under - Marjorie Lea, Mary Dale Malm, Norma Bright

The New Veterans Band from Vancouver having arrived on the mid-day boat, the big parade took place early in the afternoon. The band with the Band's Majorettes led the procession, followed by the Woodfibre Wolf Cubs with their new standard, accompanied by their leaders, L. Hobby and R. Jones. The Wolf Pack was dressed in uniform and were a credit to their leaders in their first big parade of the season. They were followed by the children's entries of decorated wagons and doll carriages. Next came the Floats entered by the various departments of the mill and townsite.
The entries were: Pulpmill Millwrights ("Mandarin Garden"), Beach Plant ("Ma's Labour Day"), Machine Shop ("Shipwrecked Sailors"), The Engineering Department (More or less as themselves), the P.T.A.

Local 494 ("4th Birthday Cake"), the Foreman ("Job Incomplete"). The floats were most effective and showed evidence of many hours work on the part of numerous people. They were judged by popular applause, the winners being: 1st - P.T.A., 2nd - Pulpmill Millwrights, and 3rd - Bleach Plant.
The parade was completed by the decorated bicycles.

Did you ever stop to think that every dollar you spend in Squamish helps to make this a better town. The growth and progress of any community depends upon the
support given to it by its citizens. The business people of the town have its interests at heart or they would not be in business here. They depend upon the people of this district not only for their livelihood but also for sufficient volume of trade, so that they can improve their businesses so as to pass on dividends to the people who deal with them in the form of better service, better variety and better prices.
As a trading centre Squamish has improved remarkably during recent years. Many still scarce items are to be found here in fair supply since local merchants are keenly interested in doing all they can to provide their customers with the goods they want.
Some people do their buying elsewhere simply without thinking and without reckoning costs. A trip to the city for shopping or sending away by mail for goods needed costs money which few consider when comparing prices. They forget
too that if they are earning their living in Squamish, every dollar they spend here comes back to them in one form or another. Part will be in improvements to
local businesses, part in improvements to the town.
Dollars spent out of town never come back. Spent here they circulate, create business, add work and wealth to our own community. It's the dollars that come back that count. It will pay you to trade at home with your "home" dollar.

NEW PGE OFFICE BRIGHT ADDITION TO SQUAMISH
The week of August 22nd was a red letter period in the lives of the P.G.E. office staff. The new offices were ready for occupation.
To see the building today one finds it hard to believe that last winter a drab army hut stood on the same ground.
Completely renovated by the Jamieson Construction Company, the building is bright and airy and for the first time, all the offices are housed under one roof. The individual offices are spacious, offering ample room for development
on a large scale.
The building is finished throughout with pale green upper walls and ceilings, with the lower walls in a slightly darker green. The fluorescent lighting is of the most
modern type. The building is heated by an automatic oil furnace, thermostatically controlled from the general office. Ducts carry the warm air to the various
offices which it enters by means of a grill set in the wall close to
Cool air, entering through grills near the flood insure a constant
flow of air.
The exterior is finished in the new P.G.E. colours, soft green walls with dark green trim, red roof and red door; not to forget the cement sidewalk along the front.
The new freight shed undergoing remodelling south of M. Rae's will leave the present freight office empty. This building will be remodelled for use as a temporary waiting room for passengers, as plans for a new station in keeping
with other new P.O.E. buildings are under consfderation.
MISSING BOAT SOUGHT BY LOCAL FAMILY
During the highwater of last weekend in August a gray, puntshaped
flat-bottomed rowboat went down the Squamish River from Buckley's Crossing.
Upon investigation, a three-foot piece of rope, attached to the anchor, showed signs of having been cut with a knife.
The owner of the rowboat, Alex Munro, would appreciate any information leading to the recovery of the missing craft.
ERNEST HAYES NEW PRINCIPAL
With a new fence in the rear of the school and a new coat of paint inside, the school opened its doors to the young people of Squamish on Tuesday, September 7th.
Taking the place of C.C. Whitlock as principal is Ernest Hayes of Lillooet. Mr A.E. White is returning as assistant high school teacher. Mr Patterson is taking Mr Sweeney's place, while Miss Loretta Chalmers is the new primary teacker. Mrs R. Webster, Mrs F. Caldwell and Mr R. Cherry are returning to familiar rooms.
On Thursday, September 9th at 8 p.m. the Squamish Parent Parent Teachers are holding a housewarming for the new members of the teaching staff as part of their regular meeting.
The rear of the school yard has acquired the new look. A neat new picket fence now separates the school yard from the mill road. Amazing what a difference even a fence can make.
LOCAL COUPLE MARRIED IN ALBERTA
The marriage took place at Olds, Alberta on August 1st, of Thomas Valdez and Mary Beuntjen, both of Squamish.
While visiting the groom's people, the couple, who had planned to marry somewhat later were persuaded to hold the ceremony in the midst of the family circle. Mr William Kaiser was his brother's best man while Mrs Kaiser was matron of honour.
After the wedding, the family, 22 in number, sat down to a wedding dinner.

DIAMOND HEAD EXPANDS
In a secluded lot next to Mr and Mrs Ingraham's an unusual building is being constructed. Made of logs, it will serve as a base camp in Squamish for Diamond Head Chalet. Mr and Mrs Emil Brantvold and the former's brother Ottar operators of the popular holiday resort, are erecting the building. Built in the Norwegian style familiar to the Brant vold Brothers; the structure will feature a sod roof, on which flowers will be planted.
In a short time, they hope to take their horses and Bambi up to Paul Ridge. Bambi, you know, is the pet deer raised on a bottle by Mrs C.B. Smith. When Bambi got too big for town life, the Brantvolds took him up to the Chalet where he has been a definite attraction.
At present there are about twenty guests at Diamond Head, among them Dr. Claude Dolman with his wife and three children, and Mr. Mrs. Ftjonald Klinck.
LOCAL RESIDENT BAGS COUGAR
His curiosity aroused by the unusual clamour of his dog, James Knutton of Brackendale, investigated thinking a coon the probable cause. Finding an alder tree the scene of the noise, he called to his wife to bring his gun. With one lucky shot he brought down a cougar the size of an airdale dog. Along with the cougar and two kittens killed in the Upper Squamish by Bill Dublack, that makes a total
of four cougars shot in the valley within a month.

WHY DOESN'T SOMEBODY DO SOMETHING?
To many Canadians, “Whv doesn’t somebodv do something?” is an almost instinctive expression indicating a situation beyond their control. But to the many Boards of Trade throughout the land it is the signal for action, the call to arms... especially when the "something" has to do with community betterment.
This is only natural. For over the years Boards of Trade have devoted their energies and talents to bring the “somebody” about affair - both business and civic - that affect communitv life. And in so doing they have established a successful record based on just such service.
The work any Board of Trade does is in direct proportion to its support. Your local board is no exception.
