The Northern Transportation Co., which operates the great steel ' bargcs-the only means of getting heavy goods here—is hard pressed at the moment to carry all the tonnage to the city. Freight for the DEW line is providing the great pressure of the moment, with Hie ordinary freight for the country steadily increasing. • Civil leaders of the city all agree that the series of air fields across the Arctic, including those built to help the DEW line, cannot help providing .the facilities needed to open the mineral wealth of the far north. Nearby are great lead and zinc deposits. In addition, new gas wells 150 miles away will provide fuel for future smelting and the prospect of a chemical industry Also, Yellowknife is rejoicing in a new uranium find which is expected to broaden the city's outlook. On top of that promising lilhtuii claims have been recently slaked With its new prosperity this area has the highest income tax average in Canada. The winter shutdown of navigation is a factor in addec living costs up here.

It operates probably the only baseball league which plays its games at night without the benefit of lights, thanks to the long Arctic summer day. Yellowknife boasts a golf course and an annual tournament on June 21 which starts at midnight. The town has not yet found the answer for the strangest golfing hazzard in Canada. The local rules provide that when a raven flies away with your ball, under the impression that it has picked up a loose bird's egg. you lose your ball but not a stroke. The ravens stay all winter. They tease the'dogs and mimic everything that catches their fancy There is a raven flying around nearby Port Hadium giving Bob Behan's telephone ring—two longs and a short—and the miners keep asking Bob why he doesn't answei lis phone. * This busy North has oilier in erests loo.
