Free Press Files
Stranded temporarily following flood conditions, nother daunted Ralph D’Andrea last Thursday when he realized he must get back to Fernie from Coleman, Alberta, to deliver his papers.
Starting out from Coleman at 1:30a.m. he hitch-hiked as far as Michel, and from Michel to Hosmer he walked the entire distance. From there he was able to catch a ride on a C.P.R. work train and arrived in Fernie around the middle of the day…. And his customers got their Free Press copies on time.
