This edition has a special Peterborough promotional edition. The pie-eating pictures on page 6a were originally located in Feb 18, 1971 file. Other pie eating photos are in the Unpublished 1970 February folder.
In a scene reminiscent of an early Max Sennet movie, these pie-eaters and others, managed to shovel through some 25 pies, at St. Peter’s High School recently. The event was billed as a pie-eating contest although many contestants opted for pie-wearing instead. The chap wearing the blueberry make up is student Mark Armstrong and the other fellow who is just about to be pronounced full is teacher Pat Kelly. The contest was part of the annual spirit week at St. Peters, which had at one point, students taking over teaching duties from staff.

Some creatures will do almost anything for a nibble, like this bold 'Peterborough' squirrel. Joe Russell of 264 Stewart St., who picked up his furry friend at the corner of Stewart and King Streets, says that he has trained up to seven squirrels to seek nuts from his back pocket. However, due to traffic along the street, the number has been reduced to three over the years through accidents.
Here Mr. Russell attracts one friendly but cautious squirrel, always on the lookout for something, usually a nut. And after the handout is taken, it's up to the pocket, where there is sure to be more, then a flying leap to safety, just in case a problem may follow such a crunchie piece of luck.
