WE ARE the organized woodworkers of B.C. Our members are found  in every community where lumbering is carried on.

THIS YEAR we- are asking for two major changes in our contract  with the lumber operators:  ���    A 35 CENT HOURLY WAGE  INCREASE  %    THE UNION SHOP  WE BELIEVE these demands are fully justified because: (1) Our real  wages are being,slashed to the bone by rising living costs, now at an  all time peak; and (2) the lumber operators are well able to pay as  shown by their enormous profits.  EXAMPLE:   H. R. MacMillan Company's net profit in  1947 was  $7/128,294, or 208% over the 1946 net profit.  ' SUCH PROFIT grabbing benefits none but a few private owners. Your  community prospers only when the lumber dollar is more widely distributed in the form of higher wages.  Help Your Community By Helping Us Win!  kteriiatioaa! Wood workers of America  ; BC.

It stuck me that perhaps the  real story of the thing is simply  that every normal youngster has  a tendency to kelptomania.  One of the happiest summers  of my own boyhood was largely  spent in being a thief���and a  pretty slick one at that. It doesn't  seem,to have left its mark. My  boss sometimes mutters about me  stealing his money. But legally  I'm still within the law.  "Thief", of course, is a harsh  word. We members of the Outlaws, as we called our organization, much preferred the term  "raiders". Whenever we were  going put to do a little pilfering at  the corner grocery store we always felt more like Robin Hood  than a Dead-End kid.  I was nine or ten then, I think,  arid there were six of us Outlaws  ���four boys and two little girls���  who could pitch a can of sardines  with as much finesse as Jimmy  Valentine.  The Outlaws had been simply  "the gang" until one day, scouting , through some bushes of a  vacant lot, we came across a wonderful hollow stump, tailor-made  as a lair for six young desperados. Thus the Outlaws was formed.  I can still remember that mossy  stump and the name "Outlaws"  scrawled on a board nailed to its  side, arid, inside, a htige colored  picture of Clara Bow.  That will give you an idea of  my vintage.  None of us were "bad" kids.  I couldn't tell you how. the raiding parties came into being. But  soon the chief function of the  Outlaws was to indulge in petty  theft.  The victim of our raids was  Wilson and Moore's . grocery  store, chiefly because Mr. Moore  (nobody ever heard of Mr. Wilson) put his bargain goods in  wire baskets outside the counters.  The system was diabolically  clever. Two of us would enter,the  store, one with a cent in his  hand. The idea was to engage Mr.  Moore in conversation over a  cent-candy   counter   while   the  "trigger-man" hastily slipped a  box of soap flakes or a bottle of  ketchup under his shirt.  Unfortunately, most of Mr.  Moore's special bargains���arid  thus the goods within reach���  were unpalatable items such as  clothes pins, javelle water, bottles  ��� x  .    ~ of   lemon  extract   and   bags   of  salt.  by Jack Scott      All of this loot piled up in the  ' old hollow stump. It was a rare  day that we got anything as exciting or as edible as a can of  molasses or a jar of olives. On  those days there would be feast-,  ing and boasting and sometimes  some violent illness.  tion all along and (as he told  me several year later) just wanted to see how far we'd go.  Yet there was a thumping thriJl  in outwitting Mr. Moore. The  ever-present risk of getting  caught made life sweet and  heady. Shouts of glee rang loud  through our Sherwood Forest  when two little girls broke  through the thicket one day carrying in triumph a stolen watermelon.  The pay-off had to come, of  course. As they say on the radio,  crime does not pay.  One of the mothers got a phone  call from dear old Mr. Moore,  who, it seems, had been remarkably well informed of the situa-  Hassan's  Store  Pender Harbour, B.C.
