Above, Verne Warren, president of the St. Thomas and District Labour Council stands outside the centre on Princess Avenue." (27m)

"Creates jobs - Don Smith, an employee at Gorman-Rupp, oversees the computer-controlled machining operation centre at the Burwell Road plant.

The machine will allow the city plant to be much more competitive and represents a foundation for future sales. The plant will be better able to meet changing markets with the machine. "(27t)
"Once Railway City - St. Thomas became known as the Railway City about a century ago when the coming of major rail lines prompted its growth as a city.

St. Thomas is currently called The Flower City." (27u)
"Relic of the past - The historic Canada Southern Railway Station, built in 1872 but now owned by Con[r]ail was a busy place especially prior to the Second World War.

"Airport key - Mayor Doug Tarry says he is convinced that the plan to extend the St. Thomas municipal airport runways to accommodate industrial jets is the key to helping the city along the road to future prosperity. The mayor admits that the plan is not popular because it involves such a huge financial outlay for the municipality and so is therefore unpopular with both some fellow council members and some taxpayers. However, he says he will continue to pursue the issue as a cornerstone to his industrial and economic strategy." (27y)
"Surveys crop - An East Elgin farmer surveys his corn crop as a sprinkler system substitutes for rain. Despite high interest rates and increased difficulties for farmers, the outlook for farming is generally favorable although caution and a realistic approach to rural business will be important guidelines for the successful farmer." (27z)
"Forecast fewer students - The Ontario Ministry of Education forecasts fewer students in school by the end of the decade but separate schools may not experience the same declien as public schools because immigration is expected to benefit separate schools.

"Came during 1960s - Early in the 1960s, the city annexed 1,700 acres of land from the Yarmouth Township which included Locke's, Yarmouth Heights and the east side of what is now Sunset Drive to the present site of Parkside Collegiate Institute.

Officials from the firm first approached the St. Thomas Chamber of Commerce. Today, the plant has become one of the cornerstoens of St. Thomas's industrial sector. In the late 1960's a $1.7 million expansion increased Timken's productivity by 30 per cent." (27f2)
"Expressway complete - The expressway bypass which runs north through the city is intended to relieve traffic congestion along Talbot Street and to provide another link in a transportation chain that will greatly speed travel form the Niagara area to Sarnia. There is a noticeable lack of traffic on the expressway at present but transportation planners predict volume will increase greatly." (27g2)
