Another great photo of children found in the Free Press negative collection. A classic summer picture. The caption reads; “A group of Midland children doing it up right at Little Lake Park  Saturday. Enjoying ice cream and chips are, Peter Contois, Jimmy Dagg, Barbara Ann Merkley, Billy Dagg and Teddy Dagg.” 

That feels better says, Lloyd Ruskin of Toronto, as his wife applies lotion to his sun burn outside their tent in Little Lake tourist park. Scenes like this were common in the area during Saturday’s scorcher. 

Miss Francis Hinks of Bracebridge who last week joined the Midland staff of Simcoe County Health Unit. She replaced Miss Charlotte Benson who has been transferred to Barrie. 

Everybody was looking at the thermometer in North Simcoe Saturday, as Old Sol provided some real tourist weather. Mrs. I. Culner and daughter Francie of Toronto learned it was 88 in the shade on the thermometer at Hartman’s hardware store on King Street, at 10:30 a.m. It climbed several degrees higher during the day. 

Donald Cooke, Baptist George, Hilton Sandy and Robert Whiteye work at handcrafts at the Mohawk Institute Camp on Christian Island. The 48 boys and girls, ranging in age from 7 to 18, all come from broken homes in southern Ontario Indian Reserves. Several bands contributed funds so the youth could have this outing. 

 

 

Bottle caps with roofing nails driven through were found scattered on Concession 13, Tiny Twp. Provincial constable Tom Heels picked up 25 of the caps off the road but not before seven motorists had experienced flat tires. Examing the caps are OPP Constables H. R. Banting and George Winter. 

 

Pete Pettersen shows Marie Raco and Julie Lang, both from Guelph and cottaging at Balm Beach, how he intends to hold an international ski jumping competition here on August 3, 4 and 5. Workmen above are spreading straw on the 300-foot run which will be held down by chicken wire then covered with snow made with an estimated half million pounds of ice. (If you had believed the Toronto papers of the day Midland would have been covered with snow in August,  the Globe and Mail had reported 200,000 tons would be used, the Star reported a million tons.)

Seems like a woman’s work is never done, and a camping trip is no exception. “Doing up” the breakfast dishes in front of their neat tent at Little Lake Park recently were Mrs. R. Madgett and Miss Gail Gimbert, both of Toronto. Tent and trailer space was at a premium in the big tourist park over the weekend, hottest of the season to date.

Building castles in the sand has been a fascinating hobby for many generations of visitors to Midland’s Little Lake Park. Even in last week’s heat little 19-month-old Diane Hoffman with her aunt Gloria Bossin, left, and her mother Mrs. Martin Hoffman enjoyed the game.

 

Just a sign of how fast things change, in 60 years we have gone from wood and coal furnaces to oil, to electric heat, some generated by nuclear reactors to natural gas pumped all the way from Western Canada, solar and geothermal.

  • The headline July 24th, 1957, the Free Press Herald; “Blame House Fire on TV, Family of Six Left Homeless” Fire which broke out yesterday morning in their Cambridge Street, Penetang, one-storey frame home left Mr. & Mrs. Ted Cadeau and their four children homeless. Mrs. Cadeau said she had been visiting her sister next door when she noticed smoke seeping out of her home. Returning home she discovered the television set blazing and “flames shooting out all over”.
  • The headline July 26th, 1957, the County Herald; “Vandals Puncture Motorists’ Tires, Police Probe Wave of Hoodlumism” Three separate police forces are seeking a person or group of persons, believed to be teenagers, who have been causing damage to motor vehicle tires. Causing the damage are large-headed shingle nails, driven through bottle caps to hold them upright, and placed in travelled portions of roadways around Penetang, Tiny Township and Balm Beach. The nails, apparently, are dropped on the road at dusk, or after dusk, when it is impossible for a car driver to detect them.
  • The headline July 31st, 1957, the Free Press Herald; “Pulls Children From Bay Waters, Valiant Fight Saves Tots’ Lives” Two Midland children, Laurel and Paul Lepage, were saved from almost certain death by drowning in Penetang Bay, early Saturday evening when they were brought out of the water in dying condition by Beverly “Bud” Ingram with a big assist from his daughter Jill. Mr. Ingram first noticed a boy flailing his arms about 100 feet off the shore at Huronia Park. Not certain whether the lad was fooling or really in trouble, he sent his eight-year-old daughter Jill to investigate. When she reached the lad he apparently grabbed her, and she shouted to her father. Mr. Ingram immediately swam out to the boy, three-year-old Paul, who by this time was under water. When he brought him to shore, Jill insisted “Daddy, there was a little girl with him”. Turning the lad over to bystanders, “Bud” went in search of the girl. After diving several times without finding any trace of the girl he again came back to shore and questioned his daughter further. “Jill insisted there was a little girl with the boy.” Several more dives at the spot where he had picked up the boy began to have a telling effect on Mr. Ingram. He started to get a pain in his chest. “I had made up my mind that this was the last dive, when I spotted her red bathing suit among the weeds in about 10 feet of water,” Mr. Ingram said. By the time he got five-year old Laurel to shore, Sgt. Len Robillard of Penetang Police was on hand, and he immediately went to work administering artificial respiration. When the fire department resuscitator arrived a short time later, in charge of Chief Bob Stewart, the girl was starting to recover through the efforts of Sgt. Robillard.
  • Crown Attorney W. M. Thompson intimated Monday an inquest will probably be held into the death by drowning of a 2-year-old child from Toronto off Bourgeois Beach, near Victoria Harbour, Saturday noon.
  • Two Elmvale area children were drowned at Wasaga Beach Monday when they apparently went out too far in the waters of Nottawasaga Bay. Their 10-year-old sister narrowly escaped a similar fate.
  • Lack of knowledge, near the scene, as to how to administer snake-bite serum might have proved fatal to a 12-year-old Toronto girl bitten by a Massassauga rattler at Six-Mile Lake Saturday afternoon. The mother told this newspaper that her daughter Elizabeth had been bitten on the right instep by the snake, about 15 p.m. Although she had been advised by her father to lie still if she was ever bitten by a snake, the little girl ran some 35 yards to her cottage. Arriving at Bob and Georges Store on Six Mile Lake where the cottager’s association kept snake bite serum, the mother said she was unable to find any person who knew how to administer the serum. Arrangements were then made with the OPP detachment at Victoria Harbour for a police escort to St. Andrews Hospital Midland. Despite the rough ride over an unfinished portion of the Trans-Canada highway, and through the heaviest weekend traffic of the season, OPP Constable Tom Heels was able to get Elizabeth to St. Andrews shortly after 4 p.m. She was attended by Dr. James Small and was able to leave with her parents Monday morning. A Toronto woman, bitten by the same kind of snake in the Six-Mile area last year, died several days after from the effects of the poison.
  • Lorne M. Lawson, a paraplegic who had become one of the best known and liked persons in the Balm Beach area, died unexpectedly in St. Andrew’s Hospital, Midland, Monday morning.   Lawson was the proprietor of Lawson’s Amusements situated on the County Road leading into Balm Beach. A native of Elmvale where he was born in 1904, he joined the RCAF in January 1940, and served almost six years in Canada and England as an aero engine mechanic he attained the rank of Sergeant. The accident, which it is believed finally ended in paralysis of the lower part of his body, occurred while he was stationed at Leeming, in Yorkshire, England, with the Canadian Bomber Group.
  • Editorial – Our Viewpoint – Golden anniversary of the CPR Great Lakes steamships Keewatin and Assinaboia this year seems almost as though it might pass unnoticed. The Clyde-built lake liners, plying from Port McNicoll to the head of the lakes, have now been in service a full half century and their popularity is still high. True the craft are old-fashioned and a bit conservative in decor, but their more than courteous crews and their smooth operation offer a most attractive contrast in a day filled with jam-packed highways and speeding aeroplanes. If we might make one suggestion, it is that the CPR is consistently underplaying the attractiveness of their lake cruises. Not only are they seldom given sufficient advertising promotion, but a few thousand dollars spent on modernizing the decor of the ships, in providing more comfortable deck chairs, and perhaps by way of installing a small ship’s playroom for younger children, could have a substantial payoff.
  • While the UAW apparently keeps up its strike payments to a small corps of picketers at Canadian Name Plate, it is of interest to note that members of few if any other unions are now respecting the picket line. The plant is working at full capacity and the UAW might be wise to write off this effort at organization as an unhappy and not too successful experiment.
  • Forty-two-year-old George LeBlanc of Midland died in Wellesley Hospital, Toronto, Thursday from injuries he received in a 40-foot fall from an apartment house roof last Saturday night. He never regained consciousness. Friends said Mr. LeBlanc elected to sleep on the roof of the Carlton Street building to escape the heat. He apparently rolled over in his sleep and fell to the pavement below, suffering severe head injuries.
  • 25 Years Ago This Week; Canadian National Railway employees had completed the removal of the CNR station at Wyebridge and had taken up the rails of the roadbed. The overhead railway bridge was also to be removed later. * * * Robert King of Central School, Midland, obtained the highest standing in June examinations.

The presentation was made at Orillia during brigade camp. * * * A Detroit syndicate had submitted a proposal to pay for the raising and reconditioning of the U.S. warships Tigress and Scorpion, resting on the bottom of Penetang Bay. The syndicate wanted to take the two ships to the World’s Fair at Chicago and place them on exhibition.
  • Penetang lost one of its senior citizens when Maria Keefer Thompson, wife of the late C. A. Thompson, one of Penetang’s pioneer merchants, died at her Poyntz Street home, July 21. Born February 27, 1871, in Strathroy, where she also received her education, she was married to Chas. A. Thompson in Strathroy, August 26, 1896. The couple observed their golden wedding anniversary in 1946, two years before his death. Following their marriage, Mr. and Mrs. Thompson moved to Penetang, where they brought up a family of five boys and one girl, who survive. They are, Dr. A. A. Thompson, Mt. Clemens, Mich., C. C. Thompson, Hamilton; Dr. E. E. Thompson, Lisbon, N.Y.; Dr. F. F. P. Thompson, Port Arthur; Dr. H. H . Thompson, Stratford and Miss G. G. Thompson, Toronto. One child died in infancy and another while still quite young. Mrs. Thompson was an Anglican and an active worker for her church. She was a life member of the Women’s Auxiliary, sang In the choir of All Saints’ Church, and for 35 years was superintendent of the Sunday School. In civic life, she was for a number of years on the board of the Protestant Separate School and had been secretary-treasurer of Penetang General Hospital Board. She was also an officer of the Women’s Institute. Funeral service was conducted by Rev. R. L. McLaren in All Saints’ Church, Tuesday, July 23. Interment was made in St. James’ Cemetery.

  • After a little less than a quarter-century of operation. Port McNicoll Continuation School has gone out of business. Starting in September, some 40 students will be transported daily by bus to Midland – Penetanguishene District High School. The Port school had provided classes for Grades 9 to 12, inclusive, shop work and home economics. The principal of the school and one of its two teachers, Mrs. E. C. Creighton will accompany the Port pupils to Midland as a new member of the MPDHS staff. Mr. Belanger said the original school building was built about 40 years ago. The continuation school addition was built 24 years ago. It provided three class rooms, shop work and home economics rooms, and an auditorium. Of solid red brick construction, the building is still in excellent condition.
  • A lifetime, resident of the Wyebridge and Waverley district, Mrs. Robert Grigg died July 17 in St. Andrews Hospital after a lengthy illness.

 The tail end of Hurricane Audrey which swept into Ontario June 29, caused only minor damage in North Simcoe, compared to the devastation wrought in Louisiana, Texas and even some Northern Ontario centres. At the same time, heavy rains June 28 and June 29 revived memories of Hurricane Hazel and a close watch was kept on all streams, particularly in the beach areas. Two workmen can be seen beneath the floor of the bridge, above, removing stop logs from a dam controlling Spring’s Pond, near Wyevale. A heavy flow of water is evident in the picture. 

Dr. Wilfred Jury, center, was surrounded by students of the University of Western Ontario Summer School of Indian Archeology and their hosts before a theatre party given to them, last week by the Midland Chamber of Commerce and the Roxy Theatre. The students also toured Huronia Museum.

Summer Vacation School at Ebenezer United Church closed July 12 after a one week program of Bible study, films, crafts, singing and recreational games. The sixth such school held at the church was conducted by Rev. & Mrs. N. B. McLeod (Bruce McLeod later became the Moderator of the United Church of Canada). Teachers were Mrs. Jack Parker, Mrs. Jack Banks, Mrs. Robert Mosley Jr., Miss Lois Wood, Miss Mary Fagan and Mrs. Grant (Marjorie Jones) Fagan. 

These fans take their wrestling seriously. They are watching a tag-team match between the Tolos brothers and Fritz Von Erich and Art Neilsen. The one girl seems to be calling for slaughterhouse tactics, while another farther down the line bites her fingernails as she awaits the outcome of the “battle”.

 

  • The headline from the Free Press Herald July 17th, 1957; Teen-aged “Mob” Mauls Two Officers at Beach. A wild half-hour pitched battle Sunday night between Tiny Twp. police and 20 to 25 teenagers will have its climax in Penetang court when four local youth will face serious charges.
  • The headline from the County Herald July 19, 1957; Pair in Beach Fracas With Police Receive Three-Month Jail Terms. This nonsense will not be tolerated said judge K. A. Cameron in Penetang court Thursday, fines third party $50.00. (Offence to sentencing in four days!)
  • 25 YEARS AGO THIS WEEK —  There was no increase in Midland’s tax rate in 1932.

  • “I was radium-cured of cancer”, writes Free Press Herald columnist Juanita Rourke in the July issue of Liberty. It was at  Andrews Hospital in Midland in the fall of 1948, that she was told she had Canada’s No. 2 killer disease. “If 10 years ago, I had known what I know now, I would never have waited,” she says, admitting she had not asked for a physical examination until several months after she first noted the danger signals of cancer. After her operation, she went to Toronto for radiation treatments, often used in combination with surgery to cure cancer.  Surgery, X-rays and radium treatments saved me, but it’s important to discover it early.” Speaking of her experience, she said: “fear is the worst enemy”.
  • While the passing of time has effected many changes in Penetang, as with most Ontario towns, many of the names adorning stores, shops and professional offices today were equally familiar back in 1928. An issue of the Penetanguishene Herald Sept. 20, 1928, sent to this paper by W. R. Williams, is ample evidence of the above fact. Perhaps the most noted exception is the old W. M. Thompson Co., Ltd., store, a household word in Penetang for more than a century until its sale to George Mead a few years ago. A few of the names, common in 1928, have since disappeared, some within the past decade. Among the missing now are Nettleton’s drug store, M. Gendron hardware, Martin’s meat market, R. J. Parker drug store, W. T. McDermott florist, A. F. Bickford tailor, Beauchamp’s garage, McElroy Bros. butcher shop, H. G. Todd implements and the Conrad M. Hewson travel agency. Still in business are J. W. Hollister and Son, J. M. H. McGuire, Phil Charlesbois, McDonald’s Hardware, the C. Beck Co., the Tessier and McGibbon lumber companies. The professional columns listed such names as Dr. J. M. Nettleton physician; Dr. J. B. King and Dr. James McBride dentists; Thompson and Thompson barristers (A. B. Thompson, KC, M.P. and W. M. Thompson, Jr); Hewson and Hewson, barristers. The Penetang motion picture palace of those days was called the Bijou.
  • Editorial; When Canada first adopted the income tax nearly forty years ago we thought it would be a good tax because it would tax people in proportion to their ability to pay. It would put the heaviest burdens on the strongest backs. We had no idea that it would develop into the all devouring monster it has since become. It is apparent that a tax on income is a tax on production and that the more a man produces the more he is taxed. This is a bad principle of income tax for it discourages production. A sound principle of taxation would put the tax on consumption rather than on production.
