WJ'55 Masthead Scouts Canada

An Amazing Machine

Submitted by Tony Roberts

Here is the little anecdote by the then-editor of The Scout and The Scouter, Rex Hazlewood, which appeared in the October 1955, issue of The Scouter:

Must note the Coca Cola machines at the Jamboree which, when you insert any coin, give you a bottle of ice-cold coke, your change, and will take off the cap of the bottle for you and drop it somewhere into its complicated intestines."

He also mentions on another day, "Saw my first poison ivy and Niagara Falls, and impressed by both."
