The York County hospital has 30 beds at the present 
time. The hospital has had double that number of patients 
in its wards at one time. There has been serious overcrowd- 
ing. In some cases patients have been turned away for lack 
of space 

In 1&43, the Davis brothers approached the hospital 
with plass for a maternity wing to be erected in memory of 
their mother, Margaret Davis. The cost was placed at 
* $60,GC0, to be paid for by the brothers. 

To join the Margaret Davis Memorial wing to the 

.original building, an addition was planned which would link 

the two. To carry this through, alterations were necessary 

in the old building. It was estimated that the cost would be 

$40,000. 

Wartime prices plus labor and material shortages have 
forced a revision in the estimated cost. An additional 
$25,000 is needed to complete the addition, equip it, and 
make the necessary alterations. 

The people of Newmarket and district helped raise the 
initial 540,000 by subscription. The hospital board is asking 
now for the same support in raising the additional $25,000. 
The York County hospital is your hospital; its benefits are 
your benefits. Send your subscription, no matter how 
small, to The Era and Express or to H. E. Lambert, chair- 
man of the hospital board.

The following interesting letter 
was received by Harvey McCordick 
from his son. 1-orne, in Italy: 

Tve just got back from a leave 
at a rest camp, the first leave 
longer than a 12-hour I've had 
since leaving England so I really 
enjoyed it. 

*The camp was right on the 
ocean with a lovely beach and 
completely self-contained. It had 
its own theatre, shopping centre, 
fruit stands, barber, etc A fellow 
could have spent his entire leave 
there and had a good time. How- 
ever, far away fields look green, 
so I made some trip* to some 
towns I've often wanted to see. 
Salerno, Pompeii and Avellino. 
Every few miles on the highway 
there's official places where trucks 
not on urgent business are supposed 
to stop and give a lift to anybody 
waiting. I got around the country 
in every type of vehicle from a 
tank transport to a jeep. 

"The most unusual ride I had was 
on an amphibious vehicle that 
travels on land and water. They're 
a big. unwieldy vehicle and I think 
j the driver was more used to 
travelling over the wide open ocean 
rather than on a crowded highway. 
The only vehicle big enough to 
argue with him over the right of 
way would be a tank and the 
driver knew it. so -each vehicle 
that passed gave him a wide berth. 
"Salerno is larger than I expected. 
It's a typical Italian town with a 
lovely wide Main street and lined 
with imposing looking buildings, 
hut the side street* were »o narrow 
that not even a jeep could get 
through them. It must have had 
a lovely beach In peace time but 
now it is spoiled by the anti-invas- 
ion devices Jerry had built but 
which didn't have much effect on 
stopping the landings there. 

"I was «uiie pleased with Pom- 
peii f pronounced Pom-pay). The 
original town was' built between 
T/fi to G00 B.C. However, it has 
been successively destroyed by 
earthquake, eruptions of Mount 
Vesuvius and more recently by 
bombs which fell on it. As the 
guidfc said. "Never peaceful." 

They have excavated most of 
the ruins and charge a small 
admission fee to see Usem. There 
is one typical dingy-looking Italian 
house which Iboks rather out of 
place among the Roman ruins. 
Somebody apparently built a house 
there before they knew the city 
was underneath and now It towers 
over the excavated city and pro- 
vides quite a contrast. Most of the 
statues were removed to Naples 
museum and from there the 
eufture-lovlng Germans shipped 
them back to Der Fuehrer. 

Tou get a lovely view from 
there, the sea in one direction and 
Vesuvius In the other. The »treets 
are still covered with fine dust 
from the last eruption of Vesuvius 
and the enterprising Italians gather 
It up. put It in smalt glass vials 
and charge anywhere up to a 
dollar for it as a souvenir. 

•The modern city of Pompeii ad- 
joining the ruins Is much better 
than en* •usual Italian city. It 
seenvs more modern and much 
cleaner. It has a magnificent 
church which is quite a tourist 
attraction in itself. 

~I was rather surprised at Avoll- 
Kuo. It used to be one of the chief 
hot beds of Fascism and I expected 
the people to be rather cool to us. 
On the contrary, the people were 
very rriendly and the shop keepers 
spared no trouble to try and please 
us_ They seemed quite sincere and 
I guess like most people they try 
to keep on good terms with the 
winning side. 

•There is a xzry nice park in the 
centre of the town which now

PYJAMA ALERT 
IN NEWMARKET 



Newmarket's slumber-schedule 
was seriously affected early 
Wednesday morning by a low- 
flying plane. For almost a half- 
hour, the plane, identified as a 
Harvard trainer, dived back and 
forth over the roof tops, bring- 
ing pyjama-clad citizens to their 
windows and to the streets with 
anxious inquiries. 

Each time the plane swooped 
over town, it was a little bit low- 
er than the previous time, wit- 
nesses said in the morning. 
According to their calculations, 
| the plane must have dived into a 
I hayfield north of town, so low it

A NONCHALANT VISITANT 




was. But even so, everyone 
(agreed that it was too close for 
j comfort. Some reports had it 
that the plane was dodging in 
and out, round and about, 
smokestacks and the water tow- 
er with its landing lights on. 

Rumor ran wild. Some said 
the war was over and this was a 
means of telling the town. 
Others said the pilot had bailed 
out and the plane would circle 
until its fuel was exhausted. 



With prosperity for the small 
farmer as his tHeme, Earle Toole. 
Progressive Conservative candidate 
for York North, stated his position 
in national Issues before an esti- 
mated crowd of 900 at the Rich- 
mond Hill arena last night. 

••I stand for the economic system 
of free enterprise/* he declared, 
-but I agree that the first and 
most important consideration must 
be the social welfare of the people. 
This can only be accomplished If 
the farmer is assured a share of 
the national income equal to his 
contribution In work and toll. I 
believe in a fair day's pay for a 
fair days work, and the right of 
labor to organise to accomplish for 
itself a share of the profits of in- 
dustry commensurate with its con- 
tribution. 

"As a farmer and ex-warden of 
the county of York. I am proud to 
be associated with John Bracken 
in his attempt to get a square deal 
for the farmer and see that labor 
is fairly dealt with. I agree with 
John Bracken that the C.C.F. 
means socialism and that socialism 
means confusion and regimentation 
and lack of freedom. I agree that 
we need a reformed capitalism in 
which the welfare of the people 
will be the first consideration and 

profits the second." 

Mr. Toole's statements preceded I 
his introduction of Ontario's min-l , 
ister of agriculture, Thomas Ken- 1 ■/ 
nedy. Mr. Kennedy described the 
work of county farm committees 
and the experimental work being 
carried out under their auspices. 
He bitterly criticized the Ottawa 
government for its centralized farm 
administration and pledged that, 
should a Progressive Conservative 
government be elected, a policy of 
decentralization would be carried 
out and" the farm experimental 
work and policy would be placed in 
the hands of farmers. 

Mr. Toole, who described him- 
self as a "son of the soil of north 
York." declared that without pros- 
perity for the small farmer, there 
could be no prosperity for the 
nation. '1 believe the backbone 
of a sound Canada, economically, 
depends upon the degree In which 
prosperity exists in the family 
farm," he said. 

He urged that the small farmers 
unite and in the spirit of organized 
co-operation ensure prosperity for 
themselves. "The condition of the 
small farmer U getting worse." he 
stated. *The small farmer has be- 




Flares were set out at the local come separated and disorganized 



camp to give the pilot his bear- 
ings if that was what he wanted. 

Whoever the pilot might be 
ihe townsfolk would much rather 
parade the streets in daylight to 
see his performance. 

It is not known yet where 
the plane came from, but calls \ 
were sent to all stations and it 
is hoped the midnight flier may 
be located and an explanation 
had. 

In the meantime, there is 
much talk over the advisability 
of mounting a machine gun on 
the water tower as a guard 
against further midnight visitors. 



We should work together on prob- 
lems of reforestation, soil conser- 
vation, farm financing and market- 
ting."

NEW FLAG rO» RALLY 



For the political rally ot Rich- 
mond Hill last night, the local 
branch of the Progressive Con- 
servative association purchased 
a new flag to drape before the 
speaker's table. The other flag 
was rather worn. 



• Prime Minister George Drew 
attacked, on constitutional 
grounds/ the King government's 
infringement upon provincial 
rights in passing the family al- 
lowances bill in the House of 
Commons on Tuesday. He was 
speaking on behalf of candidate 
Earle Toole, 

"Social service, pensions for 
old age, the blind, mothers, 
health and hospital schemes, 
and education are within the 
jurisdiction of the province," 
Mr. Drew declared. "Early this 
year I wrote to Mr. King and 
suggested that there be a 
dominion-provincial conference 
to discuss matters ot interest to 
both federal and provincial gov- 
ernments. 

"Collaboration is an utter 
necessity to co-ordinate fields of 
administration where we have* 
fields of common interest My 
request was ignored. 

"And now with sublime ef- 
frontery towards Canada's larg- 
est province, Mr. King gives us 
the family allowances bill. I 
stand behind Dr. Herbert Bruce 
who, on the floor of the House 
of Commons in Ottawa, refused 
to retract his statement that the 
bill was an outrageous bribe to 
the electors of Quebec. I have 
it on the statement of Mr. God- 
bout that this bill is the result of 
collaboration with Ottawa. 

"Mr. King reoiizes that in 
Quebec his very last chances of 
political survival lie today. He 
was anxious to bring down this 
bill before the coming dominion- 
provincial conference takes 
place. The rights of the other 
provinces were treated with 
utter disregard. Mr. King col- 
laborated with Mr. Godbout, 
but I have not heard a word 
from him. 

"Because this province con- 
tributes half of every tax dollar, 
and owns half ot every Cana- 
dian purchasing dollar, it does 
not expect privileges, but it does 
expect rights. Those are the 
rights given us by the British 
North American act, our consti- 
tution."

Mrs. Chas. Hays, Newmarket, 
has received the following letter 
from Peter White, a Newmarket 
boy who is with the Norwegian 
merchant marine: 

"I received your letter in New 
York and I was glad to hear 
from you. We left sooner than 
I expected and I didn't get a 
chance to write. I am writing 
this letter at sea and it will be 
mailed in England. We had a 
storm that lasted about three 
days, but it is pretty nice 
weather now. 

••We get the news every night 
and I guess, by the looks of 
things, I won't be seeing the 
boys after oil. I have an invita- 
tion to go to Glasgow for a few 
clays with the young gunner on 
board. If I go I will be able to 
see my Aunt Kay's family as 
they only live about a two-min- 
ute walk from Scottie's home. 
The other gunner from Liver- 
pool has invited me to stay a 
couple of days with he and his 
wife. They are the very best, 
these English fellows, and after 
knowing them, it sort of makes 
you glad and proud that you 
have English blood. I am not 
yet an experienced traveller, but 
I have been with English and 
Americans. We had a Yankee 
boat ahead of us and it was go- 
ing all over the place. The Nor- 
wegian fellows call them 
"Nebraska seamen" and make 
fun of them whenever they see

WHO ARE THE BIG POWERS? 

(Midland Free Press Herald) 

■ 

Those people who are con ten d ing that the best 
way to ensure peace in the post-war period is to 
make sure that the big three or the 
nations police the worfd, were given 
jolt recently by Clarke ML Ekhelberger in an 
address which that New Yorker, who is executive 
secretary of the United Nations Society; made 
before the annual meeting of the Can a di an 
League of Nations Society- - . 

While not in any way belittling the importance 
of agreements between the major Allied powers 
Mr. Eichelberger reminded his audience that in 
1919 most of us had exactly the same idea, 
namely that it the big powers on the winning 
side would only make treaties among themselves, 
every other world problem would take care of 
itself- So Great Britain, United States; France, 
Japan, and .Italy concluded military aHfemres 
and were made the only permanent members of 
the - League of Nations council. What has 
happened to those big five in the past quarter 
century? Hie United States declined to join the 
League, France is in temporary eclipse, and 
Japan and Italy are our enemifs. 

Perhaps it will be different this time. Bat 
already there has been some variation of opinion 
between the Allied political leaders as to just 
who are the current big powers. Great Britain's 
prime minister recently made the statement that 
France has now regained her right to a seat as 
the fourth great power at the peace table. 
Roosevelt on the other hand normally speaks of 
China as the fourth world power. 

The answer to this conundrum is as obvious as 
it is sensible While the military force of the 
currently great powers must be ranged behind 
any mid-war or post-war settlement of inter- 
national problems the final arbiter must be a 
council or league of all. nations, big or small, 
because who will venture to predict 25 years 
from, today what nations will occupy the seats of 
the mighty?

The time has come to face the situation square-

Canada drifts into state socialism, or she main- 
tains a sound basis for her economic future. The 
former result will be achieved only through a 
division of support for the latter.

It is early 1940 since I was 
Fast home. 

1 would like also if you would 
extend my many thanks to the 
organizations and clubs which 

have sent me cigarettes each 
month. A good Canadian cigar- 
ette is really a treat and £ am 
sure every tad from home thinks 
the same as I do. 

I am writing this letter on the 
first day of the invasion and E 
hope that before many months 
pass we will all be home with 
those we love so much.

again for the paper and please

necessary measures for meeting the critical post- m 
wat situation. Must they therefore imperil the j* scnt b * ** town of N'ewmar- 
whofe economic and social structure of Canada. 
by consenting still to be political enemies, thus 
frustrating the achievement of the things upon 
which both are agreed are vitally associated with 
the safety of Canada's future? 

The time has come for the display of a larger 
measure of common sense in our political 
strategy. 



This Ssi the season 61 holidays ami 
those who have much ami those 
wfte* have tittle are each trying to 
get a* much out of the season as 
they can. 

I can remember In my school 
days how the holidays seemed to 
stretch away tike some enchanted 
road where new* pleasures were 
always Just ahead and where 
adventure lurked round every 
curve. 

There were special days when 
our family and one or two others 
joined forces and took a trip down 
the Tay canal and up the HIdeau 
canal to the take for a long day's 
pleasure. 

The preparation was half the 
fun. what a making of sandwiches 
there was- not the ifancy, much 
embellished, hard to analyse sand- 
wiches of today, but the good, sub- 
stantial, tasty ones of home-cooked 
ham. sliced- paper thin by my 
father, with plenty of good, strong. 
able-bodied mustard to give It zest 
ant£ *Iee$> rhubarb and apple pies, 
which dripped cheerfully down our 
persons, owing to inadequate dishes. 
an«t which meant that all the chil- 
dren, were severely scrubbed follow- 
ing their— the ptes— consumption, 
with little regard to features, but 
with great regard to cleanliness. 

Then as we lived at one end of 
the town and the dock was at the 
other, we drove there, welt packed 
fit with baskets; and a drive with 
my father was something In the 
nature of an adventure, as he loved 
horses- that would GO., and which. 
Z think, must have been retired 
racers, for they always wanted to 
pass everything on the road. 

Arriving at the dock we unpacked 
and father went to put the horse 
away, and this always left us In a 
jittery state of nerves for fear he 



wouldn't gel back before the boat 
left. 

And when it did leave, if the 
water In the canal woa low, we 
got nn occasional bump, which. If 
one was tlntld ns t wns, always 
left one with the certainty that 
when we reached the lake, where 
there was enough water to sink 
we WOULD sink. 

However, we never did, but 
always returned tired and happy, 
to repeat the driving experience 
of the morning. And for many 
years after that holidays were al- 
ways assured and meant something 
carefree and happy and leisurely. 

Then for many years we forgot 
what holidays meant, save as a 
dim. almost sacred memory. 

And now, this year, we've had a 

holiday— a abort one r but a. real 

holiday, and we have come to one 
definite conclusion— that when you 
have a holiday every year, you take 
things you see and do as a matter 
of course, but when you wait years 
for It. you sort of crowd into it all 
the things you have misled through 
the years. 

You see every little thing on the 
roads you travel, you weave stories 
about the people and ptaces you 
pass), and each remembered land- 
mark takes on an Importance and 
significance never felt before. 

You have to learn all over again 
how to relax, and X found X had 
forgotten how to step into a can- 
oe and >nearly precipitated our little 
crew into the briny or non briny 
deep. 

So. waiting for a holiday I've 
learned three things about it— that 
it Is three pleasures in one. just 
as the three sides of a triangle 
make a .whole — anticipation, relaxa- 
tion and glorious memory! 




SOCIAL SECURITY AND TAXATION 

. (The Barrfe Examiner) 

In the good old-fashioned days— perhaps some 
of our readers will recall them — the principle of 
living and getting along in the world was to 
spend just a little less than you made. If you 
followed through this principle, you would be 
happy; if you didn't, you would be sad in your 
old age and perhaps be a burden on someone 
else. 

Now all this has changed — seemingly — espe- 
cially as applied to our federal government 
The mystic term "social security" conjuring all 
sorts of dreams of heaven here on earth, has en- 
tered our* vocabularies and has caused the gov-

It sounds like old times to hear 
of ait the. folks who have oeen or 
are going* berry-plcklng this year. 
For If one is" a good walker he 
could find a berry-patch, no doubt. 
within walking distance of town. 
"Shanks GaUawny" has become a 
popular method of travelling these 
days since the shortage of gas and 
auto-tires and everything else per- 
taining to motor cars has made 
motor traffic difficult. But anyone 
who still can travel about in their 
car and has gone berry-picking 
sure has been well rewarded by 
all accounts. I mean raspberries, 
for of all berries, to me, raspberries 
come first! Maybe because my 
birthday Is in July. A birthday 
dinner of young carroU and green 
peas and new potatoes, with some 
butter beans thrown in for good 
measure, topped off with ruspberry 
pie— welt that suits me! Oh I see 
I forgot the meat— well, and who 
would care what kind of meat 
they had If they had those grand 
summer vegetables, "with plenty 
of butter.** do I hear you say? Oh? 
don't mention butter— this Is our 
butterless week. After the war 
we'll have drawn butter in vege- 
tables once ugain and butter Icing 
on our cakes — yes. and our favor- 
ite butter-tarts toot 

But it Is berry-plcklng I am 
writing liboul — and it* takes you 
back to your early days to see 
youngsters starting out with a cup 
a honey-pail and a packet of lunch 
"going berry picking." or to see a 
carload of berry-pickers starting 
out for some secret berry-patch 
that they hope nobody else knows 
about. From neighbor's reports 
the berries are very plentiful this 
year. 

My experience in berry-picking — 
my one and only venture— ended 
rather tragically. t hud better 
luck when we used to pick blue-

IIOMK BOY MAHKd GOOD 

"What did your boy Josh do

"H«; went to the next farm as a

annual summer vacation. Some of 
us used to fish and the rest of us 
used to pick blueberries. We used 
to meet the same people every 
year—we lived in little cottages 
round the big boarding-house and 
all ate together In the boarding- 
house dining-room and it was part 
of the fun of our holiday to keep 
the table supplied with fresh blue- 
berries nnd fish. 

No — I am writing of raspberry- 
picking! And my one und only 
venture stilt remains vivid in my 
mind. It was in the days before 
motor cars were so plentiful nnd 
we went by horse and buggy. The 
kind friend who took me said It 
would be a new experience for me. 
I'll say It was! 

I must have been fairly young for 
I rode backwards, sitting in a 
little seat by the dash-board, and 
when the old horse would switch 
Its tall to keep off the flics, I'd 
get flicked across the face and I 
can still recall how the horsehair 
stung my cheeks. 

My family thought It a huge joke 
and nobody looked for any berries 
in my pall. But I set out in high 
spirits and I woutd show them X 
was grown up and could pick 
berries as well as the next one! I 
bet X never slept that night and 
I bet also I spent a good part of 
the day before getting ready! It 
was going to be an adventure I'd 
counted on for long enough! The 
family knew my propensities and 
predicted I'd come home with more 
flowers and ferns than berries, and 
a good coat of sunburn and with a 
new crop of stories abouts birds 
and squirrels and things. They 
assured me there were snakes in 
the berry patch— well, what uYd I 
care for snakes— nothing! How 
ever, when I knew there might be 
cows— COWS— that look at you so, 

that neatty finished me, but Aunt 
Jane assured me they wouldn't hurt 
me and she would "shoo" them 
away if they came near. I tried 
hard to believe her. 

We bumped and we bumped out 
the road by Sir Wm. Mulock'a and 
finally came to Gamble woods. 
Aunt Jane (she really wasn't our 
aunt but we always called her Aunt 
Janc> finally decided we'd stop at 
a certain place and "pick our way" 
to *a certain other place where 
"Uncle John" was to meet us and 
bring ltd home in the late after- 
noon. I think I'd better draw the 
veil over what I did all that 
wonderful day— I did everything I'd 
always dreamed of doing if I ever 
got to Gamble woods. I had huge 
bunches of Brown»oycd Susans, 
those lovely golden daisies, and 
armfuls of ferns and all sorts of 
strange, new wild flowers to tako 
home and find out about. X had 
mosses and queer bunches of 
berries, of Jack-In-the-Pulptt . and 
Wake-robin. I'd lose Aunt Jane 
and M hoo-hoo" till I located her— 
then I got hungry, so we made our 
way to where we had parked our 
lunch and the Jar of cold tea, just 
in time to see a big hound gobble 
up the !«*t of all our lunch. Gee 
whir-was I Just about hollow and 
as hungry as a youngster can get 



which tilled two pages of the sei 
berries up in Muskoka. on our v*ce sheet. With them were former* 

' ' officer prisoners from Stalag Luft; 

III. nnd across the aisle sat national 
figure*. Sir Archibald Sinclair* 
Minister for Air. Sir Charles Portal} 
Marshal of the Air Force, who rcnoV 
the lesson, and Lord Trenchardf 
were there, together with the. 
Ambassadors of Poland and Bew 
glum and other representatives of 
the nine Allied and Dominion All 
Forces which are mourning victim: 

The public, uniformed and civlt? 
Ian. filled the gallery. Next to of 
pilot with the D.F.C. and bar stood): 
en old man with a scarf Instead oft

Many other London workers hod] 
queued to join the service. 

A guard of honor of Domihloi 
airmen, all air crew, stood dowi 
the steps to the porch of St. 
Martins. The air force standai 
hung behind the pulpit, which wai 
decorated with white flowers, nn< 
the ItA-F. orchestra sat before thi 
choir. It played Elgnr and th< 
Purcell Trumpet Voluntary, and lt§ 
accompanied the hymn. "I vow b 
thee, my country.'* before th< 
church was stilled for the sound ol 
the last post and reveille. 



out-of-doors that way I So we 
drank some cold tea and Aunt Jon 
thought I'd better begin to pic 
a few berries as Uncle John would> 
be coming for us any time. Not/- 
being used to It I couldn't seem to 
locate the berries, but I struggled 
along. Kvcry new bird-note VM 
hear, and there were plenty you\: 
may be sure, sent me into a trance; 
and I forgot everything else! 1 
really had managed to pick a re»-;< 
pectabie showing— I couldn't see- 
the bottom of my pall at any rate.;; 
I had a smaller pah tied round myj 

waist and the larger one I'd try] 
und remember to keep near enough* 
to locate easily. The lure of nature^ 
was my undoing— I couldn't find] 
my pall— and tost considerable tlmeg 
hunting for It— and when I did* 
finally locate It, there was xnyi 
huted enemy, a cow. Just finishing! 
the last of my berries, with thol 
pail turned upside down on its nosej 
to get the very last one! a 

Aunt Jane had followed me and;. 
I expect she thought I'd hav« efi 



'conniption fit" (whatever. that is); 



when I saw the covr-but I guess 
my funny-bone came to my rescue' 
for I jn*t etood and laughed and* 
laughed! She had lo laugh herself^ 
finally, but she was thinking of my.; 

lost berries, so we set to work W 
pick a few more so I'd have some ' 
to take homo for I absolutely re- 
fused to tnko any of hers. How- 
over Undo John arrived almost at 
once— and oh you should havoi 
heard him laugh, too. at my pre-? 
dlcament, but he said it was home] 
for us, wo must be about starved, ; 
and hustled us to the road where] 

he had left the horse, me carrying; 

a huge bunch of faded golden > 
daisies and ferns and my pail, the; 
small one with about two straw-; 
berry boxes full of berries in thoi 
bottom. Got home to find cousins I 
there for tea and how they enjoyed; 
my berries after hearing my aoVf 
ventures! ■ i

The following items have appear- 
ed fn Part II order* under the 

heading of Births. We take the 
liberty to suggest that the caption, 
Strength Increase, might be an 
appropriate heading: 

At Kingston, a daughter, Doreen 
Jane v was born to Tpr. and Mrs. 
Albert Klsh on June 29. And to 
Pte. and Mrs. I. E. Koepke at 
Newmarket. Gordon Elmer arrived 

on June 20. At Sudbury, Alonzo 
Kenneth was born to Tpr. and Mrs. 
Kenneth P. Cain on June 12. While 
at Toronto Tpr. and Mrs. Arthur 
B. Lindsay are rejoicing in the 
birth of a son, Arthur William, 
who arrived to their household on 
July 26. Another new Torontonian 
is Barry Allan, infant eon of Tpr. 
and Mrs. A. F. Douglas, who 
arrived on June 27. 

Under the paragraph heading of 
Marriages we find the following. 
We suggest the caption Attach- 
ment. 

Tpr. Kenneth B. Power married 
Miss Gloria Bessie GIlby on June 21 
p.t EJmsdale. N.S. U CpL Harold W. 
Fletcher and his brhie. Miss Sara 
Eleanor Ustin, chose Newmarket 
for the place of their marriage, 
which took place on July 7. 

At Brampton. L.-Cp1. Bruce N. 
Gumraer and Miss Audrey Gert- 
rude Woods were married on June 
24. 

Our most recent all-army wedding 
took place at Sault St. Marie, Ont. 
The principals In this marriage 
were both lance-jacks-. U-CpL Louis 
MorineUi and L.-Cp1. Helen J. Os- 
borne are both of this camr>. Their 
wedding took place on June 23. 

BowmanviUe was chosen as the 
place for the wedding of Tpr. J. 
M. Puk and Miss Martha Eileen 
Bernice Sleep, who were married 

on July &. 

The following we would place 
under the paragraph heading. In- 
crease in Pay: The light green of 
the d-mtal corps now forms the 
background to a crown on the 
shoulders of former Capt. Harry 
P. Bishop. O.C. of the "drill hall." 
Congratulations also to Sgt. Esther 
Morley for her recent promotion 
and to Sgt Edwin J. Edmonds. 

The Blockbusters visited the 
camp to present u well-received j J" 
show last Tuesday. Blonde Erin * 
Gill made a splendid mistress of 
ceremonies and gained her share of 
the applause and aside remarks. 
She apologized that the holiday 
season had taken some of their 
cast away but for our part we felt 
that the show was real good and 
congratulate Chas. Stethens and 
his- £ang for their entertaining 
show*. 

In the evening before the show 
we played our second game against 
the Adys. The score was 5-1 for 
Adys. Our previous game with 
them resulted in an SO victory In 
their favor so we are improving. 
This game wast unique in that 
there were three Georges on our 
team, L*- Cpl. George, our old stand- 
by, his brother. Dvr. George, and 
Capt George of the same name but 
cot related. 

All three of them played a fine 
game. The captain was well up 
jn front and what he lacked In 
speed, and he had some of that, he 
made up with direction. He was a 
real support to the team. The 
dental clinic turned in o fine gome, 
Capt Morrett and Cpl. Garrett both 
passing and booting wcIL 
L.-Cpl. George scored our only 
goal on a penalty kick in the first 
few moments of the game. Adys 
tied it up five minutes later. We 
then held them until the last five 
minutes of the game when they

Postponed events usually arc 
somewhat doomed but not so the

the C.W.A.C. The weather con- 
spired at exactly the wrong time to 
dampen or "wash out" in the literal 
sense the sports planned by the 
girls last week. And even yester- 
day it ups and rains again just to 
make things a little more uncert- 
ain. 

But in spite of that a break in 
the clouds and a little sunshine 
dried up the track enough so that 
the events as planned were carried

in large numbers to watch "the fair 
contestants (some were quite 
blonde) and all had a good time.

poor old 23 was eliminated all right,

Tfcoje who are employing workers 
for a period of two weeks or 
longer should ask their hired help

as they arrive. Rationed foodstuffs 
must be purchased for them with 
coupons from their books.

Already I have enjoyed many 
cherms and apricots. The species 
of cherries I do not know but they 
aie very dark and palatable. 

"All forecasts point to a good 
grape crop. Italians are to be seen 
in vaat vineyards spraying the 
crops with Inject repellant of some 
sort and keeping the weeds out. 
Many green cluster* of immature 
grapes can be seen- 

•The majority of the buildings r 
*re inclined to be old and in the 
case of rural districts are dilapi- 
dated. But some of the houses and 
buildings show that Italian art is 
not a thing of the past- The 
interior of one building I was In 
was extravagantly ornamented with 
pigments of gold, walnut, wine, 
ivory ami deep maroon which 

looked a bit ethereal. 

"Another thing which might 
seem a trine bizarre in this day 
and age was to see the Italians in 
one place building a bridge stone 
by stone— each stone being chiselled 
into shape and placed by hand. 
Their only toots seemed to be a 
few crude wooden forms, a sort of 
a stretcher for carrying stones. 
Amazingly enough when tie bridge 
was finished it looked very im- 
pressive and showed the masterful 
art which a great lineage has left 
them.'*

11-0 against the R.C.A.F. at Hnger*-

We played Orillia last week and

There is still an ache in our hearts 

today 

That countless years won't take 
away. 

To have to love and then to part 
Is the- greatest trial of the human 
heart 

Though hia- am ile Is gone forever 
And his voice we cannot hear. 

We shall neve? lose sweet memories 
Of the one we loved so dear. 

Sadly missett by brother and 
sister. Nell and Roy. 



"Once agaift I take pleasure in 
writing, and thanking you for 
the carton of smoking tobacco/* 
Sgt Jack Hamilton writes in a 
letter to the Newmarket Vet- 
erans' Sordiers* Comforts fund. 
•'It arrived on June 30, and the 
following day I was going on 
weekend to Manchester. The 
tobacco couldn't have come at a 
better time for I was completely 
out. English smoking tobacco 
can't begin to> compare to ours 
and it almost breaks our hearts 
when we have to pay two and 
six an ounce for it. 

,4 I read art account in The Era 
and Express from one of the 
town boys now in Italy. He said 
he didn't think there was an- 
other town in Canada that look- 
ed after their boys better than 
good old Newmarket and I quite 
agree with him. Every time we 
receive parcels you hear chaps 
exclaim, 'Gee. the veterans of 
our town don't look after us like 
that.' We all certainly appre- 
ciate the good work you are do-

While in Manchester I saw 
many historical sights. There 
were buildings and monuments 
dating back to Cromwell's time 
and even some beyond that. I 
noticed some buildings that 
were very modern and found 
out that they were built just be- 
fore the war. There were also 
many buildings that Jerry had 
played havoc with. I took a 
double-decker bus ride out to 
Bolton which is only about ten 
miles from Manchester. Bolton 
is a very old city, but quaint 
a-d pretty. One particular 
street has a big stone cross in 
the centre of it, marking the 
spot where Oliver Cromwell had 
a man beheaded. I took a pic- 
ture of it. also of the city hall. 
I never saw so many beautiful 
cathedrals as there are in some 
of these cities. They have been 
built for years and look to be 
able to stand up for years to 
come. Tli ere is great history 
with them all, but I can't begin 
to remember everything. 

"White out at an airport near 
us I came across a chap, a Mur- 
ray Ludlow, who at one time 
mm in Newmarket. I believe 
h»s father worked at the Office 
Specialty and he knew the late 
tes. Reiily quite well. I don't 
remember the name but prob- 
ably some of you Vets will 
Anyway we had a good chat 
about old times. It is surpris- 
ing how many chaps we come 
across that know Newmarket 
well or lived there at some time. 
Also we come across chaps that 
were at the camp in town or 
had cottages at the lake and 
shopped in town. It was just 
about two weeks ago that I 
*ame across Harry Hamilton, 
who used to work with Dr. 
Lock hart a few years ago. 
Maybe we didn't go over old 
times! I have seen Glen Boyd 
(Ontario SI.) and Percy Deavitt, | 



in-law. Mrs. Carl Ward.

PARTY 




I U 



Aurora children, resident in 
the vicinity of Machell Ave., 
raised $3.21 last week for the 
Aurora Red Cross through in- 
genious juvenile salesmanship. 

A lawn party was held at the 
home of Mrs. William Trent, 
whose husband serves in Italy, 
and when rain came the party 
was moved indoors and con- 
tinued. Lemonade, sandwiches, 
candy, oranges and cookies were 
sold, while rides in a wagon 
were also vended. 

A play and mock wedding, a 
double one too, were also held. 
The brides were Margaret Bar- 
rager and Helen Long, the 



Aurora bantams with their 
backs to the wall defeated Rich- 
mond Hill pee-wees on Friday 
night in the town park 9-5 irt a 
five inning fixture to force a 
three-cornered tie in the league. 
As a result a further round- 
robin series will be played with 
all teams participating in home 
and home game*. . - .* . 

"Fat" Milne and Ronnie Sim- 
mons divided the local mound 
duties and kept the hits well 

scattered although both were in- 
clined to wildness. Simmons 
went in with the bases full to 
strike out two batters and re- 
lieve the pressure. Bennett and 
Wilson worked for the Hill 

poungsiers and wore tagged tot 
eight safeties. Aurora got three 
runs in the second and another 
in the third only to have Rich- 
mond Hill just about tie it in the 

fourth with three runs. 

A five-run fourth inning bar- 
rage put the game on ice for 
Aurora in the fourth, The game 
was late in starting due to the 
rain. It was thought the visitors 
might not appear, however, Bill 
Holloway and DeL Babcock 
rounded up the boys hurriedly 

and the fans enjoyed the contest.

ISSUE 
IS LAID ASIDE 



• '*• 



WITH THE CHURCHES 

Rev. W. J. Stewart of Aurora, 
retired United church pastor, 
will occupy the pulpit of St. 
Andrew's Presbyterian church 
during August, while the pastor, 
Rev. S. W. Hirtle, Richmond 
Hill, is on holidays. 

Mr. and Mrs. Stewart have 
just returned from Dalston. 
,Ont, where Mr. Stewart has 
been supplying at the United 
church during July. 

Rev. Thomas Mitchell, Ring- 
wood, took Sunday's service at 



The proposed parking by-law 
for the town of Aurora will not 
be brought in at the August 
meeting or likely this year. 
Councillor Thos. Swindle said 

recently. "There Is not much 
sense putting a. by-law on the 
books that can't be enforced. 
We have only one constable 
available and his present duties 
do not permit him to watch for 
parking breaches during the 

day/' said Mr. Swindle. "We 
have too many by-laws now 
which aren't enforced. Tliere 
are also so many angles to the 
matter that I don't think it ad- 
visable." ' * 

ITie by-law was discussed pre- 
viously in council as a means of 
making Yonge St. safer for 
pedestrians by curtailing park- 
ing in front of the post office. 

"We can't force the bus line 
to change its present system," 
Councillor Rod. Smith said. 
The only solution to the bus 
parking problem as I see it 
would be to prohibit parking in 
front of the post office, and 
there is the difficulty of enforce- 
ment-" 

The resignation of Councillor 
Robert D. Thomson is likely to 
be dealt with by council in view 
of the fact Mr. Thomson has 
reiterated his intention to resign. 
Councillor Thomson held the 
post of chairman of the rehabili- 
tation committee, which has not 
yet been filled. 

"Rehabilitation is an important 
problem," said Councillor 
Swindle. "It is something coun- 
cil should be considering." 

Mr. Thomson said he had for-

in other years and there is a 
large change in staff due to ill- 
ness, war work, and holidays, 
the same enthusiasm prevails. 

Sessions are held each Tues- 
day, Wednesday, Thursday and 
Friday mornings during the first 
throe weeks in August, with 
children from four to 12 divided 
into senior boys, senior girls 
and primary classes. Sessions

Fat. was a nifty lacrosse player. 

lieulL Laxry COmnon ace Camv 
dian and Olympic hurdler and first 
captain And coach of Newmarket 
'camp's initial track team, has been 



wounded In action in France. Larry 
was a corporal at Newmarket and 
his many friends will be glad to 
learn the wound is not thought to 
be serious and he will be un the 
job agnln shortly. 

Clair Exelby, the slugging New- 
market master-minder of both soft- 
bnll and hardball, has been picked 
for the all-star Congress hardball 
team by Pte. Ralph Barber, sports 
editor of the Army Bullet, the M.D. 
2 weekly news sheet. Exelby was 
the only Newmarket player to be 
so selected. Ex. is likely to get 
quite a few votes from the boys 
before the final selections nre 
made for the charity all-star game 
that will be played In Toronto be- 
fore the season is over. Pte. 
Barber, incidentally, should know 
something about baseball, for a 
few years back he was a member 
of the Uxbrldge team which per- 
formed In the TorkrSimcoe circuit. 
Last year he was a member of the 

Sa. 2 Difltrict Depot team. 

Cnariie VonZanC, the Gabby Hart- 
nett of Newmarket softball and 
hardball for more years than we 
both wish to recall, has come across 
with bis selections on kid hardball 
la the district, Charlie la more or 
te&r along with George Haskett 
and several others fathering the 






revival of hardball in canaltown 
and has done a mighty good job of 
things In his first year. It is no 
mean feat to start from scratch 
and make such a good job and 
Chuck, like most of the fellows 
who are married, has quite a few 
after wo.-k Jobs so that he is not 
able to give all the time he would 
like, to being with kids: "I have 
tried to Impress on the boys the 
necessity of knowing the game as 

well as being able to play it," he 
writes. To the youngsters let me 

say that VanZnnt, Alex. Webster 
and that gang of Redmcn who won 
the respect of all opposition on the 
softball diamond, won many times 
simply because they were keen 
students of the game and knew the 
rules. Woe betide the umpire who 
couldn't call them according to the 
book, and wc know whereof we 

speak. 

The younger lads have not been 
given much chance to play this 

season, a fact that disturbs the 

Newmarket men behind the scheme, 
but as Charlie says, "we could not 
run a bantam team this year under 
existing conditions. However, next 
year we hope the war will be over 
and then watch baseball grow."

FOTTAGEVILLE 

United Sunday-School 
Picnic Huge Success 

The Pottageville United Sun- 
day-school picnic was held Sat- 
urday, and was a big success. 
Races and contests were held 
and many prizes were won. 
After a substantial supper had 
been served, a concert was en- 
joved by all. 

The following items were in- 
cluded on the program: Mrs. 
Proctor sang two very lovely 
solos and was also heard in 
duets with H. Stone. Mrs. Y. R. 
Rhodes gave two recitations 
which were well received by the 
audience. The Stone family 
played several numbers, assisted 
by Douglas Rilev on the drums. 
The Paton brothers played and 
saner two numbers and Mrs. Mil- 
ton Abraham and E. Paton sang 
duets. Barbara Jackson of Brant- 
ford gave several humorous 
recitations in costume, one espe- 
cially pleasing, was called The 
Minuet, and convinced the au- 
dience that Grandma's dancing 
was very graceful. Mr. and Mrs. 
Black were heard in ducts, in- 
cluding a Negro spiritual. Shir- 
ley Bernter and Millie McKenzie 
sang together very sweetly, as 
also did Beatrice Proctor, Gray- 
don Aitkinson, accompanied by 
Boyd Patton, played old-time 
dance music, and the closing 
number was Harold Stone who 
gave the audience many a laugh 
with his jokes and feats of 
maeic. 

Mr. Archibald made a very 
able master of ceremonies, and 
all proclaimed this picnic to 
have been the best held in Pot- 
taprville in some years. 

The United Sunday-school 
was held at 11 a.m. Sunday. Mr. 
Stephenson, Aurora, conducted 

Mr. Poyntz, Lloyd- 
a very inspiring 
the young people. 
Mr. Steohenson led the children 
in several choruses, and Bob 
Stephenson and Barbara Jack- 
son sane solos. Mrs. Tom Proc- j 
tor and H. Stone sane The Old 
Rugged Cross. Mrs. Stephenson 
led in prayer. The service was 
well attended. 

Ross. Charlton of Toronto, who 
is well known in Pottageville, 
won the Ontario junior men's 
back-stroke championship at 
Toronto and the Quebec champ- 
ionship at Montreal. Following 
this he tried for the dominion 
championship at Vancouver, 
R.C., but came second to a 
Vancouver man. 

Miss Barbara Anne Jackson, 
who has been visiting her aunt, 
Mrs. II. Stone, has left to spend j 
three weeks at a C.G.I.T. camp 
at SibbaWs Point, after which 
she will return to her home in 
Brantford.

Butter Production Said 
Under Last Year's Level 






Butter production in Ontario 
is still running considerably be- 
low last year, according to the 
report for June of creamery in- 
structors of the Ontario depart- 
ment of agriculture. In the 
northwestern section of the 
province, however, production 
has been very close to that of 
lasl year. The peak of produc- 
tion for 1944 was reached dur- 
ing the week ending June IT* 
the same week as last year, ex- 
cept in northern Ontario, which* 
was a week earlier. 

The quality of butter being" 
produced has been very good, 
despite labor shortage and lack 
of efficient help. July prospects 
are for a decided drop in pro- 
duction, .this being accentuated 
by the hot, dry weather. 

On account of the extremely- 
hot weather during the last part 
of June, the director of dairying* 
has recommended to the ad- 
ministrator of services, wartime 
prices and trade board, that 
creameries be allowed to pick, 
up cream at least twice a week,, 
effective at once.

What we teach and how we teach 
are matters of everyday concern, 
but the teachers must know why 
they teach and pupils must know 
why they learn if teaching and 
learning are to be truly effective. 

The teacher must consider at 
least four things— the child, th* 
school, the environment or neigh- 
borhood and himself. The teacher 
must consider himself because, in 
place, a great deal Is 
taught by precept and example.

Self-improvement— academic, soc- 
ial and spiritual— becomes not a 
selfish motive, but an essential part 
ot his life. It behooves the teacher 
to give consideration to the bpau- 
tification of the school environ 
ment and through it the home 
represented. 

The majority of lectures In our 
section were, from the teaching 

(standpoint, very practical. The 
subject of social studies received 
prime importance. On Tuesday 
morning Dr. Winters, former prin- 
cipal of Ottawa normal school and 
now an official at the department, 
spoke on the subject of social 
studies in the elementary school 
grades *-& 

In our presentation of social 
studies we must adopt a new per- 
spective. Minimize the time *pent 
on actual wars and social upheav- 
als; emphasize their basic causes 
and results. 

Figures in history are thrilling. 
but they are less important than 
the vast people they rule or guided. 
It is the mass of the people who 
are affected by social changes. It 
is the people we must understand. 
Our pupils are the next generation. 
To prepare them for this task

of facts. 

One speaker stated that a sound 
knowledge of historical and geogra- 
phical facts helps a man to stand 
hrmly on his feet. He said that it 
was pathetic to see the ignorance 
of many young Canadian citizens 
today. He stated that certain facts 
must be taught. After all facts 



Laycock stated that the use of 
radio cannot be Ignored In element- 
ary school* and that it it, fairly 
safe to assume that In the not too 
distant future radio will play an 
even more prominent part in our 
education. Its scope is ettorntou*. 
Its facilities immeusurnbte and its 
future assured. 

He emphasized Ihe fact ihat the 
radio is an aid to the teacher, not 
a substitute for the teacher. The 
teacher must not get the Idea that 
the radio period offers him a 
chance to mark the regtstec and 
check work.

Hsteniue. t.. ihe radio wUI have 
been without rrsults. The teacher 
Is responsible for the preparation 
and the application; the radio takes 
care «if the tilher two.
