nadians Assist New Zealand Pulp Industry
AUCKLAND, N.Z. - . Canadian "know-how" is steadily flowing into New Zealand to assist in the establishment of a big new newsprint industry. Numerous Canadians have been engaged for a year or more working on the design ,4iid erection of the mills and' the installation of machinery at Kawcrau, near the east coast of North Island. This is the headquarters of the* Tasman Pulp & Paper Co., the multi-million-dollar concern which will produce lumber, pulp, newsprint and other timber products. ^ Last month a party of about 60 ; lumbermen arrived from Canada to get the logging side of the operation under way. Latest arrivals are members of a management team supplied by the Abitibi PoWer & Paper Co. of Toronto. A further group of lumbermen is due the end of this month and additional parties of Canadian experts will arrive as the mills prepare to go into production later this year.

Up to date machinery is the one indispensable elenrient pf prdfitable logsing, construction/mining and marine operation. In times of increasing competition it is more necessary ^than ever to have the right machines that can operate on a low cost/ high production basis. You can rely on the equipment supplied by Vancouver Machinery Depot for the best performance with lowest maintenance costs. Experienced operators have proved that the nationally known lines of machinery and equipment distributed by V M D pay dividends in greater production and profits.

Reeve Says Decision In 1956 On Proposed Miinieipal Hall Work
VICTORIA—Reeve Fred Norris of Oak Bay predicts that decision to build proposed new municipal hall on the site of the old high school on Oak Bay avenue will have to be. reached next year. Crowded conditions at the present hall at Oak Bay avenue and Hampshire road .have become so serious that the regular council chamber has to be used as tem-; pbrary departmental offices. The project right now is blocked by the fact that School District No. 61 holds a lease, of thie former high school on the opposite side of the street. ,; ; ' .. ''.. ^' _ '•;!:;" In view of the school congestion at present, the proposed extensions to the jvilipws school, p^^^ of the curmit ;^ogram, w^^ have ^p be compi^eil before the former high school^tkisi available. -

I t is a completely pre-packaged, ready-to-install, all-metal unit consisting of glass panels, completely glazed and weatherstripped; plus screen panels safetyscreened with Fiberglas screen cloth, Glass and screen panels are shipped in convenient cartons to prevent damage during transit and construction. And because the.inserts are completely interchangeable, the window openmgs can be closed in seconds as desired. The Rusco Window is of tubular constructionprecision built of finest galvanized steel. All surfaces are bonderized for perfect paint adherence and finished with a beautiful, durable outdoor gray enamel. ' There's n6 glazing to do, no fitting of hardware.

James Y. Johnstone, a graduate of the UBC School of Architecture who was awarded ^ n industrial design scholarship by the National Industrial Design Council, Ottawa, for advanced study in product design a t the Royal College of Art in London, England, has won several distinctions while there. Most recent was the publicity given his diploma project at the school. This was for the design of a compact four-berth automobile trailer. It was reproduced in a recent issue of Design, the monthly English

magazine devoted to the encouragement of good design i n industrial products. Previously, Mr. Johnstone had won a second prize in an important furniture competition held a year ago in England. Employed in the past six months in designing furniture for an English firm, Mr. Johnstone is now returning to Canada where he will be engaged in the industrial design profession.
