Hougen’s regularly sponsored musical groups to perform in Whitehorse. Seen here, are the Irish Rovers: Will Millar, Jim Ferguson and George Millar following their performance.

Syd Skillman, Vice-President of Ford Canada and Mrs. Skillman visited Whitehorse in July. An underground tour at Whitehorse Copper Mine near McRae was interesting as the Mine was both an open pit and an underground operation.
