You. no doubt have seen the head- lines in this paper during the past few weeks which told you that the ‘go ahead signal’ was on and that a commit- tee of interested citizens could start making plans for the raising of the necessary funds. In previous columns I have mentioned the merits of the Company idea as opâ€" posed to the voluntary subscription plan. Well, a meet- ing was held this week to discuss further moves and a f ir cross section of all the local organizations. clubs, etc., attended. Names may not mean much to you but here they are anyway so you will get a general idea who is behind this community efl’ort. They are Craig Bowden, Jack Hart, Bill Savage, Alec Clarke, A1 White, Jack Hol- lowell, Bill Gilchrist, Ralph Paris, Morley Hall, Alex Baird Elgin Barrow, Cec. Mabley. Walt Smith. Harry Bawden Art Gibson, Morley Williams, Floyd Pratt, Norm Todd and your scribe. va VVV we ,,___o V, paid a visit to the above mentioned community to see What uccess they had with artificial ice. It was quite a report! After four years they are all paid up. everyâ€" body is happy and they have money left over and don't know what to do with it. Last year, after all expenses, they cleared $7,000! The snack bar concession alone took in $8,200! They employ a manager at $50 per week plus other sundry help. Now you see a lot of $$$$ signs with regards to proâ€" fit in operating an arena in my column but we mustn’t lose sight of the fact that you can’t operate on buttons. You have to break a little better than even. If you don’t, it’s one heck of a way to run a business! Once the con- tributors are reimbursed then the funds obtained from profit can be channeled into further recreational facili- ties which we definitely need. ' , The Nobleton Arena set-up was discussed with in- terest at the meeting as two of the C_ommittee_1last week TEMPERANCEVILLE Fred Hare’s Store KING CITY Armstrong’s Store Perry’s Drug Store ELGIN MILLS E. Hall’s Service Station , Pridham‘s Store MAPLE Joe Weber’s Grocery McCowan’s Store Perry‘s Drug Store And Away We Go An Oganization Committee chairmaned by Norm Todd will set up the system 'and you will be hearing more about it in the near future. A Campaign Commit- tee headed by Ralph Paris and a Technical Committee with Alex Baird at the helm were also formed. The group will be known as the Richmond Hill Arena Association and has a five'mman executive which will apply for incor- poration as a private company. The executive members are as follows: President, Bill Ellis: lst vice president, Eec. Mebley; 2nd vice-pfesident, A1 White; secretary, Bill Gilchrist and treasurer, Harry Bawden. Well, that’s it. If we don’t get artificial ice now, we will never get it, everybody agrees on that. Hockey Clubs And Red Ink This is the time of year hockey clubs check their books and order a generous supply of red ink to make entries. The majority of clubs won‘t show a profit un- less they were lucky enough to get into the playoffs. But playoffs go hand in hand with heavy travelling expenses, so you can’t win. . . Last week I was in Western Ontario and talking to a friend of mine who took it upon himself to sponsor a hockey team in order to obtain some publicity for his company. Well, with paying players’ salaries and trip expenses he really took a beating. While in his ofl’ice he introduced me to a man who was an efl’icienCy expert whose job it was to put the company on a better paying basis. It was pretty easy to see the connection.

DISTRIBI SPT NEWSI ETANT WHEEL TRACTOR, constructed about 1903 by a prede- cesnor company of Caterpillar Tractor 00., Peoria, 111., was one of the’ Largest tractors ever built, measuring over 45 feet wide. De- signed to work in soft, peat soils, its wide wheels proved cumber- some and led to the construction of the first practical track-type tractor in 1904.

OPEN BOWLING JOB PRINTING THE LIBERAL TU. 4-1261 The Sportsâ€"5M EXCESS BAGGAGE A BASEBALL PROBLEM Recently, when in New York lecturing at the United States National Training Clinic, I had a chance to talk with Frank Wei- cher. famous training expert of the Philadelphia Phillies. He told me a very interesting thing con- cerning the fact that excess weigh. is a great problem in the major leagues of baseball. He explained that for some reason baseball players carry more ex- cess weight than any other ath- lete competing in a sport de- manding maximum reaction: time and agility â€" both factors ser- iously hindered by excess weight. Weicher claimed that experts had demonstrated that even five extra pounds spoiled timing and would. for example, cause loss\of interest in pitching and a slfi‘mp in the batting average. The reason for this situation. and it applies to nearly all types and ages of base- ball players. is that being out in the open for several hours creates a heavy appetite and as they feel they are active athletes. the average player thinks he should eat heavily â€" as do foot- ball players_ However. study shows that a baseball player uses up only ab- out 350 calories per game where- as a football player uses about 1,000. So. remember â€" baseball is a “hungry” sport but not one in which you need to eat heavily to store up extra calories. If you play ball watch that intake and keep lean and sharp. Track and Field Needs Time If you are interested in track and field and are planning to com- pete in your school meets this spring don't make the mistake (as you probably did last year) of putting off your training pre- paration .until the last week or so. Start right now and begin to get ready. Get rid of any extra weight, start doing some stretch- ing and flexibility exercises and get that mid-section well condi- Standings of the teams at the beginning of the fourth series: Crackpots 7, Bloodhounds 5.

A recent survey of school ath- letes taking their lunch to school showed that 92% used white bread to make their sandwiches. Only 27% used enriched white bread. Don't forget what I've told you before concerning the fact that as bread makes up such a large part of your daily food in- take it must be enriched white bread or whole grain, if you are to assure a plentiful supply of vitamins and minerals. Check with mom and when using white bread for luncheon sandwiches (or snacks after school or games) make it enriched white bread. WEEK-END ATHLETICS The person whose job entails sitting at a desk most of the week is often tempted to go in for strenuous exercise over the week-end to make up for it. Too many rounds of golf. too much tennis. canoeing or heavy work around the cottage may mean that, for the rest of the week. the week-end athlete will have to take things easily to recuperate. Plan a normal but not over-active week-end, especially in hot wea- ther. Get the rest that will help to give you energy to carry on efficiently for the other five days of the week. Adequate sleep is necessary to allow mind and body to recover from the day’s wear and tear. Lack of sleep can actually cause impairment of the faculties and is sometimes the cause of acci- dents. Preventing sleep has been used as a system of torture on occasion. The pedestrian who is only half awake may not take proper precautions in traffic and the sleepy motorist is a menace. Individuals vary in ‘the amount of sleep they require. but every adult should learn his own re- quirements -â€" and see that he gets them. Every child killed in a traffic accident means the loss to Canada of another citizen' who might have become an outstanding fig- ure in the country‘s history. These accidents take an increasing toll every year â€" and they are not all the fault of the motorist. In many cases. children do not re- ceive proper training in obeying traffic rules. Often, their elders set a bad example by crossing a street against the red light. If a youngster sees his parents ignore the traffic signal, he will do the same thing when he is alone â€" and his judgment of speed and distance is not reliable.
