Already twenty miles of main and sanitary sewer has been laid. As improvements advanced, a certain cry predominated over all others. and it sounded something like this: "The roads, roads, roads." Yes, and what roads! Heavy traffic, dust, mud .... a mess. But like everything else, it had an ending and that came to pass on October 26th, 1955, at 4.45 p.m. when the Honourable William J. Keough cut the ribbon and declared the 7.450-foot paved road officially opened. The Provincial Government granted $76.000 for paving: $57,000 a special grant, the other $19.000 already being allocated to the town. Plans were submitted by the Town Council. Many problems arose pertaining to operators. equipment, and material, and many meetings were held. The United States Air Force, responsible for keeping the toad passable. lent a helping hand. Their achievement was celebrated with a street dance. That night as one went to town, dressed in his best clothes and having had a shoe shine, it was a wonderful relief. Lights, merrymaking . . . . no dust or mud, with traffic moving along noiselessly. [ thought to myself 'Lo and behold, out of the dust arose Stephenville' . it was now a boom town with paved streets. Much of the life of the town is shared with base petsonnel, who belong to such groups as Lion's Club, Masonic Lodge. Knights of Columbus, Anglican's Young People's Association, Chamber of Commerce, and other civic or religious JUNE, ItS' organizations. The Lion's Club can account for the new children's playground, under whose sponsorship it was built at a cost of thousands of dollars. They are active in such special events as sports on Labor Day, and turkey raffles in December. This is Mona Abbott (rom Stephenville Crossing_Miss Hannon Flame o{ 1955. 17
