Apparent­ ly he failed to negotiate two sect­ ions of the Canol Road whilst driving in yesterday. Fortunately he suffered no injurieé and the vehicle is rep­ orted to have not been damaged.

All are invited to the celebration,at this time however the address for such is not available.* N.C. MECHANIC LEAVES BRAGA UPSET. M. Braga, local cat operator is said to be displeased at the conduct of the N. C. mechanic who left the city today. î=/t#i ' i said Braga, apparently.the mech- anic ha(i left without completing his duties. Braga now has to tighten four bolts and fix the geebosprocken by himself, the job should be finished within five days says Braga. LOCAL SCHOLAR Local scholar R.E.G. Davis told the Swim Lake News Herald today that St. PatrickTs day originated in Ireland. Mr. Davis went on further to say that St. P-trick was made a saint because of his duties carried out while exterminating the local Irish poulation of snakes. Some doubt was expressed as to the accuracy of this statement but Davis said that this must be true because as far as- he knew there were no snakes left in Ireland today. SPORTS FINAL Brock and Davis are still in the midst of the semi-finals of the push-up tour­ nament. So far Davis is leading, having done 31 push uos to Brocks 29. At the last match however a protest was levied by Brock who claimed that Davis was cheat­ ing by getting a re-bound action off his protruding stomach. No comment was offered by Davis at the time. The tournament still continues.

French, senior sampler and well known prospector has helped unearth what he himself tenus *a most amazing thing*. It is now common knowledge that Dynasty Explorations Ltd. was not searching for base metal sulphides of eco­ nomic grade but has been busy conducting an intensive study of the Vangorda Area in order to prove a theory of Dr.A.E. Aho, company pres­ ident. Dr. Aho has always believed that the Greeks were the first to inhabit the Yukon, unable to convince the scientific world of his theory he studied geological engineering and later formed Dynasty Explorations. Funds for archéologie investigations were raised by selling stock in this ’mining exploration venture*. The most economic way to look for ancient relics of a lost empire is to drill,says Aho. By using a rotary drill,chip samples may be obtained and then glued together to give the origihal object, such as it looked back in 406 B.C. John French has just finished gluing to­ gether the first statue, a few chips are missing because of the sampling method employed but now that this has been perfected the next statue should be in good shape says French. This first statme has a chip off its shoulder he mentioned. Aho says all Dyne sty shareholders are very happy about the discovery. At first some were a little concerned but now they all realize the investment was ’well worth itf,some even said that money is not everything and they are glad Dr. Aho has shown them that a contribution to the world of archeology is better than a million dollar personal capital gain.

Kulan says that sometimes as much as 201bs. of the Beaver pay load will be comprised of papers for Brock. Brock has expressed dis- : approval by not letting any­ one else read his papers. He does this by cutting them up as he reads them and then eating the pieces.

A White Pass truck driver applied much originality in developing what is thought to be a relatively new unloading technique insofar as com­ pressors go. Although it was tried a little prematurely it was indeed effective. The method consisted of jack­ knifing his trailer on a steep hill a few miles away from camp.

SWIM LAKE iNEWS HERALD Wednesday March 24, 1965 Vol. %. Ü 7 BREAKTHROUGH IN MEDICAL WORLD Dr. Copenhagen has announced that he has finally proven that snoose juice makes one loose. The chewing of snuff, a oopular pastime amongst most young people, is said to be physically harm- full. Dr. Copenhagen has proven this wrong by conducting experiments on different users of snuff around the Yukon Territory. Old and young alike were supplied with ample quantities of snuff and in­ structed to take as much as they could without it interfering with their norm­ al eating habits. The results were tabulated after one year and the following observations made: 1) Snuff can be taken during the meal by inserting it in the upper lip. 2) Snoose juice can be swallowed to give mild and pleasant palpatations of the heart as well as a slightly dizzy sensation. Nausea only means more snuff must be taken as it is a withdrawal symptom. $)Emily Post has recognized the tak­ ing of snuff at dinner parties and all social engagements if the cor­ rect procedures of insertion are followed. 4)Most women feel that snuff should not be chewed during the coarse of Tgood night7 procedures. DRILLERS TO DRILL WITH HAMMER United Geophysical will drill down the hole with a hammer. The hole is SRH #3 and the hammer doesn7t look like a hammer, it looks like a heavy piece of sewage pipe that is all plugged up. United says the down the hole ham­ mer is a good answer for fast drilling Jo Lehman says they never used any hammers in the needle factory but its worth a try. Apparently the hammer goes down the hole and hammers hammers up and down, occassionally it hammers sideways if things go wrong. If the hammer starts to hammer sideways down the hole then it is time to evacuate because it may start to hammer up after a while and end up anyplace, forinstance the cookshack or some other camp building that is used constantly. They are going to hammer in the morning, evening and all over this land.

MOVIE REVIEW Last night was the first showing of Tom Jones at the Swim Lake Bijou, it is well worth seeing for those who saw it. That means yon should see it twice since there is nothing else to do in this God Awful Burg. Tom Jones is an old fashioned diamond driller who gets into a lot of trouble. He gets into a lot of trouble with these girls that he makes friends with but his relatives are really rich and tell him to clear out and get a job with some other outfit. Well old Tom Jones hasnTt got a car so he rides around the country on a horse and finally gets into so much trouble with a bunch of waitresses or something that some other diamond drillers string him up on a tri­ pod. He doesnTt die because his forman comes along and saws down the tripod with a powersaw while he is still on his horse. BOOK REVIEW ManTs Illustrated, March 1965, is a book that is realiv worth having a look at. Donft worry if you can7t read very well because all you have to do is look like I said before. Look at page 42 and check out 7Lush Patty Conners7. It says that she is a lush, they also say, 7Patty Conners makes no bones about being a beach scavenger! I think someone has made a mistake because for one thing Miss Patty Conners does not have very many clothes on in some of these pictures on page 42, 43,4^,45 and she most decidedley does not look like a drunken seagull which is what these guys in Man7s Illustrated say. She looks like a D 7 with a ripper on it. Man7s Illustrated should have said 7 Cat Patty Conners makes no bones about tearing up the grass7.

Reg says,”A few persons do not care for the services of our waitress as shown by their continual jumping up and down from the tables in order to get their own food and drinky Reg went on further to say that one would think these people were brought up in a cafeteria. Reg has already started to modify the kitchen to suooly cafeteria style service in conjunction with the ordinary Tdinning room special’ that he customarily provides to his patrons. Shown in the photograph are the new cooks that will help in the cafeteria,they will sunply a twenty-four hour service for the people that used to make their own sandwiches and jump around in the dinning room. MORE FISHING BUT NOT ON SUNDAY The United crew can11 get enough fishing in when the weather is good says boss Dave Meikle. This time they are only fishing for the rare DOWNTHEHÜLEHAMMER known only to local bedrock. Special tackle is used for this snort. Already the action has been tense, Elmer hooked a large DOWN THEHOLSHAMMER a couple of times but the light sporting tackle would not take the strenuous play offered by the king of fish. Most of the men are now using a Carson #3 lure. Made solely tv Carson it weighs about 35 pounds and spins behind about a three inch diameter 7,000 pound test leader hitched to a Sport Master Kelly Reel. No reports have been recieved catch with this new concerning the equipment.

The instrument looks for fish, the boys then plot the location of the big fish on a map and more people join the cast to try and catch the fish by blowing air into the ground and spearing it with big needles.

CATMAN came back to Swim City, he cannot leap tall buildings at a single bound but he did show that he was more powerful than a locomotive. This was demonstrated when N.C. CATMAN fixed the D 7 with his bear hands. He has bare bear paws with such massive power that he can fix up a transmission without the aid of a single tool, he is equip­ ped with X-Ray vision so that he can look inside a transmission and say "nothing wrong here”. These feats of mighty power do not tire out N.C. CATMAN at all, he can work hard and then talk all night vithout dowing the slightest sign of fatigue. N.C. CATMAN has one weakness, SUPER* MAN fears the dreaded mineral Kriptonite, N.C. CATMAN has also one enemy, the Lynx. A. Harman shot a lynx and when he turned around N.C. CATMAN was racing away like about &4 of the most powerful locomotives ever seen going through the bush at Swim Lake. NEW RADIO NO SPEAK GOOD DynastyTs new radio, purchased for the sum of $1400 bucks has a speach impedement. It often speaks good ordinary Yukon English but some days it clams up and only says crackle...zap..zap...bleep bleep. This is frustrating for the radio operator who naturally tends to feel inferior When he cannot understand some of this high priced talk. The radio is called Single Side Winder and when it feels up to scratcl it can s^eak several languages only each must be spoken sideways. It speaks the language of the Single Side Band at Old Crow best, although it is getting pretty good at Selkirk Band no. 2 from Ross River, TRAGIC ACCIDENT MARS DISPLAY A wonderful display of northern lights was interunted two days ago when Elmer Richert (Is that your last name Elmer?) fell from the tdp of the rig.

The reflection off the snow may give you what is known as a TtanT which is the first stages of Galloping Carcenoma. If you smoke and go out in the sun at the same time watch out as vou may end up with pictures of your internals in some medical text-book. If you chew snuff, smoke, go out in the sun and breath air polluted witl grease, then start burning a couple of candles for yourself. By the way when vou do burn the candles, say your prayers a short distance away, candle fumes can cause cancer as well.

"Ouch, okay Gord, okay I#ll change it, I»m sorry I said, IT11 change it, the tvpe- writer slipped thats all, woops no room tc The answer to this popular Question around town is NO J Alan Kulan has not left Whitehorse yet, mainly because he is in jail. Kulan was jailed last night and will be charged tomorrow concerning the theft of the relic sternwheeler, Klondike. Kulans lawyer will plead that Kulan was removing the ship in order to aid the development of the base mineral exploration program being carried out in the Swim Lake Area. Kulan was apprehended on the Canol Road while towing the sternwheeler to Swim City on the back of a Tborrowed» White Pass truck. When asked what he planned to do with the once famous vessal he replied that^ he was going to mount it on tracks, move the whole City inside it as well as the drill equipment and all exploration personel and thus keep the Dynasty operations working as an efficient unit. This would save money and be a' cheap cheap operation, all under one roof. Save money he babbled, no loss, cheap.

UNITED V,E STON'D SOMETIMES David Meikle says that his company likes to have the men stand up while on trie job,if they are unable to stand then they recieve a warning. If they are caught falling down on the job a second time they are divided from the company. United we stand, divided we fall says Jo. The men were severly repremanded for building what appears to be bleachers or grandstands in front of the drill. Kenneth Ullmer, age 47,said the seats are for R.E.G.

Swim City will always be here and there • is no reason to ever think it won't be.

The skids are being made for members of the united geophvsical crew who are presently conducting a gravity survey. One is HALLOWEEN MAY BE SOON Halloween may be early this year as there promises to be fireworks of unknown magnitude when Dynasty starts to modify its fuel tank farm. The level of the large fuel tanks has dropped to such an extent t%at filling drums on trucks is al­ most impossible. The solution says a Dynasty official is to dig a trench that will lower the ground and therefore the truck th t is being fueled. The only way to break the frozen soil for removal is by the use of dynamite. A series of holes will be drilled in front, of the tanks and then blasted. John S.

As most of you know they; are camped in Cub Couj nty and have a big clearing around their) campsite. At meal tim4 they play ’drive in restaurent’ a game where the jeep, cat and dog teams draw up in front of the cooktent and switch on their lights. The dog-team drivers use candles.
