Revival Of Island Sought By GARY HARKER Journal Staff Writer "Who remembers Big Island?" To admit fond memories of Big Island is akin to remarking "you don't see much Horehound candy these and it is just as revealing about one's age. For the benefit of those of you who didn't have to wear knickers until your 18th birthday, Big Island is three hours up the North Saskatchewan by river boat. Fifty years ago no one could be sure summer had arrived until a picnic had been held at Big Island.

Then like mosquitos, the first was followed by a multitude. TREE COVERED Big Island was seventy acres of land just off the west bank of the river. It was covered by a poplar grove which stood 70 to 80 feet tall. Weekdays the stern-wheeler City of Edmonton hauled wood to John Walter's saw mill, but come Sunday it was over the side with drudgery and a cargo of festive picnickers was welcomed aboard. In mid-morning the boat cast off for Big Island and arrived shortly after noon.

DANCED ON DECK It wasn't until evening that the horn blew and passengers boarded for the return trip. The era of Big Island's popularity came to an end when the war in Europe turned people's minds to other things.

It would seem so, were it not for a recent step by the Stony Plain municipal council toward returning it to a recreation spot one day. John Evjen, reeve of Stony Plain, has contacted the Ed- Contract Charges Refuted The president of Burns and Dutton Ltd.

describes as "nonsense' charges his firm has unfairly received provincial government contracts. J. L. Simpson of Calgary was replying to a charge by provincial New Democrat Party Leader Neil Reimer that the firm has received six times as much work from the provincial government during the past four years than its nearest competitor. Mr.

Reimer suggested a public inquiry commission be established to examine public works contracts. "This comes up in every election campaign, some contractor is singled out," said Mr. Simpson. The reason his firm has received $32,000,000 in government contracts is because it concenon such work, he added. trates.

The island is currently property of the provincial government. The idea of the MD is not to make the needed improvements to the island, it doesn't have the money. Mr. Evjen said the council just wants to make sure the land doesn't fall into private hands so that one day it can be turned into a public recreation area again. VANIER HONORARY PATRON OF OPERA ASSOCIATION Governor-General Georges Vanier has granted his honorary patronage to the Edmonton Professional Opera Association.

The announcement, made earlier this week from Government House in Ottawa, was enthusiastically received by the new organization which is well advanced with plans for its first season of productions. "We feel singularly fortunate and honored," said EPOA president David Ker, who hopes that Edmonton will become no less noted across Canada for producing good opera than for playing good football. Auditions for its two forthcoming productions have been completed and rehearsals are scheduled to begin June 13. The EPOA will produce Madam Butterfly Oct. 11 and 12 and the combination of Pagliacci and Cavalleria Rusticana on April 10 and 11, 1964.
