11 THE SURREY LEADER, CLOVERDALE, B.C. " THURSDAY, MARCH 13th, 1958. OYEZ A column of Legion News by Neville C. Curtlf Early Spring Blooms at Peace Arch Show The three-toed tree-toad Sings his sweet ode To the moon. Arthur Gulterman Aye! he did too, the other eve ning, bless him. Spring ain't iar round the corner. As I write this it's the general meeting night for Newton Legion Branch No. 175 and president Tom Eymundson has been good enough to relay an account of his meeting By the way, while we're talking about Newton, it's bad news to hear that faithful comrade Walter Barwise has been forced to resign as secretary-treasurer of the branch due to ill health. He'll be sadly missed for his hard work for the Canadian Legion and the branch in particular. We wish him, too, a speedy re covery and extend appreciation for the Legionaires here who know him for his splendid work in past years. Just a spot of news from Mrs. Jefferys for the Auxiliary which is holding a ham bingo on March 29th in the evening, at Newton Legion Hall. Proceeds will go to ward the Surrey Memorial Hospital Society fund. And that reminds me that an ef fort is being made at the present times to have the three Legion branches at Whalley, Newton and Cloverdale campaign for a fund to furnish two, 4-bed wards In the Surrey Memorial Hospital. On the Newton committee are Comrades Sam Smith and Reeve R. M. "Bob" Nesbitt. Other branch es will, of course, have their com mittees too, and shortly now a progress report will be coming through this column. That's a fine bit of work the branches are doing, and Legionaires and public too when approached' will do well to dig deep and give all you can. It's our hospital and who knows who'll be the first to use it? Among the dates ahead is a past presidents' party at Newton for Auxiliary members and husbands, also Legionaires and their wives or lady friends. This is scheduled for April Sth in the evening. It seems from reports that the Newton Auxiliary in addition to the Legionaires have been doing well in the way of getting in new members. Quite a few have been initiated this year already and at the last meeting on Monday three more ladies were inducted info the Auxiliary. These were Mrs. E. Mark, Mrs. R. Obray and Mrs. H. Craig. Good luck and best wishes, ladies, Tne newly elected secretary-treasurer for Newton Branch succeeding Comrade Barwise is past president Jack Simpkin, who is a fine man for a fine job. Jack has been a Legion member ever since the organization amalgamated with the Great War Veterans Association which he joined in 1925. He was first vice-president and later president of Legion Branch No. 48, Coltingwood; also secretary-treasurer for the Newton Branch in 1954. Comrade Simpkin joined the 108th Winnipeg Light Infantry as a bugler when he was only 14 years old and went to France in Word War I with the 10th Bat talion. He was wounded twice and was a sergeant when he received his discharge in May, 1919. His hobby is rabbit breeding and he has won many prizes including the P.N.E. cup award for their Red Satin best entry in the summer of 1955. Other dates ahead include the Crescent Ladies Auxiliary's social this evening, Whalley Legion meet ing on Monday, and Cloverdale Legion and Ladies both meet on March 27th. Newton Vimy Night will be on April 9th and I under stand tney II repeat last year s treat they gave the boys in George Derby by bringing them out to Newton for the evening. FLASH! Just as Tom was signing off at Newton he flashed the news that Comrade Walter Bas-wise has been made a lite member of Branch No. 175. Well; if that isn't good news, for Waller deserves it richly. ' Comrades-in-arms A shortie from the Army says i simple candle, only a few inches long, can spell the difference between life and death at the Army's northern training base ; at Fort Churchill. Canadian troops, now busy with Arctic warfare training on the tundra near camp, keep a candle burning fhroughout the night when sleeping in snow caves. If the candle goes out it is taken as an indication that the oxygen in the air in the cave has been exhausted and two ventilators, cut in the roof of the cave are opened to let in fresh, crisp sub-zero air. Canadian Army instructors in Arctic warfare at Churchill say they have never had a case of suffocation but insist that the randies be used. . . . In Hospital Shaufihnessy Military Hospital:, DOBBIN TO THE RESCUE Horses are helping to keep con struction of the $20,000,000 British Amercial Oil refinery at Port Moody ahead of schedule despite heavv rains. Bv transporting men and equip ment where wheeled vehicles cannot go, the horses have helped conquer the chief obstacle to win ter construction mud. Polethyl ene tents have made it possible for welders to work in the rant. Testing of refinery units is ex pected to begin in mid-October with full-scale operation planned for December.

Cenlennial Miner Doll Shown Peace Arch W.I. Replicas from former days, and a doll dressed for the Institute dis play were on show at the meeting of Peace Arch Women's Institute. Delegates to the Bienial Conven tion at Fort Langley for Douglas district were Mrs. Richard Cam midge, and Mrs. Betty Gay.

On display was the replica figure of a miner, dressed by Mrs. T. Bar rett to be part of the Centennial group for Fort Langley. Also on show -were antiques from the members with a varied show of snuffboxes, ' samplers, ' hand carved wood and silver spoons, a water, jug with' lid and a fire shovel,- Members who owned the Antiques gave a three minute talk on their history and age. Comrades J. Jones, R. D. Pearce, R. Mann, Hubert L. Harris, Mrs. J. Brooman, Chet Brown, W. D. Allen, Arthur Miller, A. Caron, Jim Maine,- Bill Cowland. It's nice to know that Comrades . B. Brankin and John Leonard are both home again. Dave Brankin says he has been released from Shaughnessy but must go back in again this month for further treatment. Hope the hospital by-law will pass (it sure did, Dave). I note the School Board is having many problems to face. I had my share during the 18 years I served on the board."
