SPANIARD’S BAY—It is not often that an airplane alights on the waters of our harbour, but one did on Wednesday afternoon, bringing three officials from the Anglo-Nfld, Development Company of Grand Falls to present to Gerald Stringer, a bursary winner from Little Heart’s Ease, one of the AND Company’s Grade Nine Scholarships valued at $400.00.

Making the presentation at Holy Redeemer School to the successful student was Mr. W. W. Hickman, superintendent of logging personnel with the AND and accompanying his was Mr. Dick O’Neill of Newfoundland Public Relations and also Radio Station VOCM. The company’s photographer was on hand to record on film presentation, and present also were the principal and vice- principal of Holy Redeemer School. Mr. W. Hedderson and Mr. E. H. Vokey.

Gerald is the son of Mr. and Mrs. George Stringer of Little Heart’s Ease in Trinity Bay, and last year was a Grade IX student at the United Church School in that community. Our congratulations go to Gerald, his parents, and to his teacher and school.
