Fellow Members and Boys Overseas;

It's short - we hope it's sweet. The old town bangs along - but not in the same way - too many women, not enough men! But the Ken Club still manages to get along on 3 fair cylinders. Still chiseling the public for money. This year it's a stampede and carnival - two days Sep. 1 & 2 - another 48 hours with no sleep, no food - BUT -! - 28 men - and the best of them - lost from the club to the war means a dozen grey hairs per day for President Brown - he's very busy these days - and nites - with the rest of the boys building corrals for the 2 big days. 8 chutes this year - no less. Incidentally the "brain" work is still done in "Nellies" room at the Jasper.

Secretary Don Bygrave is latest addition to R.C.A.F. and leaves us Sept 1st. The new "Doc" Mitchell can't sell as many tickets for us as the old one - but by gaurd the "Hillbilly" can almost ride a horse.

Good work by "P.F.R.G." Beamish, Art Waller and Lynn Redmund seems to have netted result by the way of an airport for old M.C. - This western country is spoiling a h- of a lot of good Englishmen!

By the way - applications will be received for a can puller by John Ingram - No men left and John's hands are very tired.

Next time it will be longer we hope - meanwhile keep up the old chins - and believe us, we really appreciate it all.

Yours very truly,
Every Member of the Ken Club

300 cigarettes are on the way - we hope you get them
