Are you there???:
We now have communication with the world by telephone. On Tuesday, 29th October, Superintendent of Northwest Communications Ltd. made the first telephone call to our President Mr. F. M. Connell in Toronto Office. The line was good. To further prove the possibilities of long distance communication a call was placed to Mrs. J.T. Adamson (Mr. Adamson being a visitor at that time, Managing Director of James Hardie & Col. Sydney, Australia) to Sydney, Australia and in 20 minutes the call was completed. Do you know that it is believed that Cassiar to Watson Lake (100 miles) is the longest distance between local and long distance operator?

Coming Events: The community club lounge should be serving liquids shortly, so they say. Oh when oh when will this day be? Can we be lucky and have it as a Christmas present???
