Remember when:

*We used to place a piece of tissue or cigarette paper over the teeth of a comb and make music. The sound we heard was much like a bazooka.

*The last time you had a cut and had Mercurochrome dabbed on it? If you really wanted something to "sting" a touch of Iodine did the trick.

*Males were referred to as "guys" and females as "gals". We notice now that be it a female curling rink to a ball team the girls refer to themselves as "guys". Why?

*The "Aldous House" in Fenelon Falls was forced to close its' doors after the township held a plebiscite and the "dry" vote won out.

Boy did that ever come as blessing for local bootleggers.

*Phil Taylor and Bill Lindop, both service station owners in Minden, decided to close on alternate Sundays so they could have a free day with their families.

*Roy Neville was appointed principal of Central Public School. Neville had served with the RCAF and started his teaching career at Queen Victoria PS after the war teaching Grades six and seven.

*"The Post" listed the Lindsay Curling Club news and rink standings under the heading "The Roaring Game".
