Congratulations to Tom Holliday who has recently acquired his 3rd class engi neer's certificate.

The new office lunchroom is really a grand improve­ment even though it isn't sound proof during the card games at noon. Since the games are re-enacted with words during the afternoons anyway, sound proofing would be pointless.

Fred Jurak rendezvoused all by his lonesome in the elevator one day. The eleva­tor got tired and stopped half way between two floors and there it sat until Jim Brown needed it 10-15 minutes later. He alerted George to unlock it. We sure didn't like to see Fred kept away from shovelling snow all that time.

Belle Plaine pulled a fast one on us this year. Mery Buchanan, Doug Keil, John Herne and Jack McCallum, in the yearly interplant curl­ing, took the A. J. Robinson Trophy right from under our noses.

The same weekend Ed Pankiw's rink won the Mar­tin O'Day Trophy.

Edith and Norman Young have a baby boy ! We have all waited for this happy event and we all join in hearty congratulations to the trio. Edith and her son are still in hospital in Ed­monton so we do not know yet what the little fellow's name is going to be.

Our annual cribbage tournament has come to a close with Mike Hamernyk of Marwayne winning the 1st prize trophy of the fi­nal playoffs. There were 19 units this year; Windsor Club Unit A, Alice Young took first; Pearl Anderson second; Unit B Nick Elas­chuk took first, Tom Hodge second.

This month we would like to direct a bit of attention to our loading crew. These men on all shifts have taken us through a very busy win­ter, and have worked hard to load those trucks and cars. Your work may have seemed endless but it hasn't gone unnoticed.
