Hickman of A.N.D. is holding (top picture) contains cheques of $400 each which he presented, on behalf of the Anglo-Newfoundland Development Company Limited, to fifty Newfoundland students. The winners were children, brothers or sisters of employees in the A.N.D. Company Woods operations who worked between July 1, 1961 and June 30, 1962. Total value in these enveloped is $20,000. Eric L. Smith (on the right in centre picture) of Little Heart’s Ease was one of the winners of an A.N.D. Company 50th Anniversary Scholarship. Two years ago Chesley, Eric’s older brother, had won an Anniversary Scholarship. One hundred excited youngsters met the Anniversary Scholarship presentation group at the dock at Woody Island, Placentia Bay, (Bottom picture). The happy group walked to the nearby school to watch as winner Percy Barrett was presented with his $400 scholarship cheque by Mr. Hickman.
