Markdale Standard cub reporter Ruth Graham was not only covering Markdale, Ontario's biggest news event in decades, she was in the news herself!

     By press time for the August 29, 1957 issue, word had arrived that she had been awarded a $500 bursary for a university of her choice. This proved the perfect accompaniment for the well-written and informative article she had crafted covering the making of a Regal Films cinemascope movie temporarily dubbed "A Boy And His Dog."
