 +====Walgon River Walkabout-===== 
 + 
 +You have heard Roley on women of course? "Two men to every womanladsetc., etc."... but there'​s another side to the story. There he was on the Walgon - the old dog for the hard road. Three women in the crowdand every one of them in his food party! Need we explain that his pack weighed 101bs., that he fried not one single chop; nor stirred one single billy; yes, nor washed one single plate? 
 + 
 +In that impromptu spirit so manifest among the walkers, they wandered up a side creek from Annie Rowan'​s,​ to find an impasse in the form of two waterfalls. No; they must turn back. But whist! Was that a voice up there? Why, there were Jenny and Eric, way up top. Now this, my dears, was a pretty pickle - for half of the food was up and could not get down, whilst tiae othar half was down and could not get up. Have you ever faced the prospect of living the rest of the day on dried cabbage and milk? Then do you wonder that Jenny yelled as only Jenny can yell? 
 + 
 +=====Stork Derby.=====

 +Yes, as forecast, the stork has been working as hard as usual. The Paul Barnses drew a cloak of secrecy around the event, but it is now known that their daughter will be six months old at Christmas. 
 + 
 +The Ron Bakers, too, are gurgling baby-talk. Rhonda Lisbeth is their last light-weight effort. Visitors to the ward noticed that another baby bore strong resemblance to one of the club's male eligiblies. Now, who's blushing?
