FISHING RESORT FINAL EDITION Weather FORECAST-SHOWERS Winnipeg Wheat OCTOBER CLOSE  .......... 77 M VOL. XXXI.-No. 184. LETHBRIDGE, ALBERTA,   TUESDAY, JULY 19, 1938 12 PAGES WELCOME FOR BRITISH ROYALTY Men Battle Stem Blaze In Mad Rush Forbes Landing in Precarious Position as Wind Changes FIRST FIRE FATALITY NEAR MISSOULA CAMPBELL RIVER, B. C, July 19.- (CP.)- Eight hundred gasping men toiled in sickening heat today to save Forbes Landing, tiny fishing resort five nvles southwest of here, from a raging forest fire. Burning back over timber land already desecrated late last week by the same blaze, the fire "almost encircled" ths summer resort, British Columbia police said. The fire started 12 miles north at Menzles Bay a week ago. Out of control. It ran down-island, barely missing Forbes Landing and forcing evacuation of the settlement and of nearby logging camps. Fighters Powerless Last night the wind changed, driving the blaze back over the ground It had already travelled once. Eight, hundred men were powerless to halt its mad rush. Police said "some" people were still nt the landing. Although they said rescue overland would be impossible, any persons still there could be brought out by' landing a plane on small lakes in the vicinity, officers said Other blazes in British Columbia are burning through timberland at Sechelt Inlet, 25 miles north of Vancouver, and in the Kootenay district. First Fatality The first fatality of the widespread northwest fire area was reported today from near Missoula, Mcnt. John MEN BATTLE (Continued on Page Three.) Reorganization Of Quebec Liberal Party MONTREAL, July 19- C(P!-Adel-ard Godbout, leader of the provincial Liberal party, announced today sweeping plans for reorganization of the Liberal party. In conformity to the reorganization res'olution proposed by Hon. Ernest Lapointe and approved at the recent Liberal convention at Quebec, it is proposed to set up active Liberal associations in each of Quebec's 90 counties, the provincial leader announced In a statement to the press today. The Left Hand ... Corner. A Deserted Village In Ontario - The Queen's Mother. ACCOUNTS that turn up from time to time show that Goldsmith's "Deserted Village" has had its counterpart several times in this young country, and the St. Thomas Times Journal questions if a more eccentric instance can be adduced than that of the vanished village at Sixteen-Mile. Creek, on the Dundas (No. 5) highway In the valley right under the large high bridge that now spans the creek and valley, over which thousands of tourists daily pass unconscious of the ghosts that hover about the romantic snot. The story is told in the June Canadian Motorist, organ of the Ontario Motor League, by Maurice Bruce McCausland, son-in-law of John Biggar, whose father, William Biggar, was one of the original loyal settlers in this pretty valley. John Biggar's widow still lives in Toronto at the age of 92 with her daughter, wife of the writer of the sketch referred to. A queer historic quirk has developed in the circumstance that William Lyon Mackenzie after the disaster of Montgomery's Tavern, in 1H37, fled to the United States border via this village of the Sixteen Hollow, as it was originally known, threading a difficult way across a dam at that point to escape the keen. eyes of watchful loyalists. Another odd circumstance was that a few years ago Mackenzie's grandson, Premier Right Hon. Mackenzie King, was escorted by John Biggar and  Major THE LEFT HAND (Continued on Back Page.) Lonely Cowboy 5000 Miles From Home, In Mess CALGARY, July 19.-'*)- More than 5,000 miles from home, the world's loneliest cowboy, Lance Skudthorpe of Sydney, Australia, finds himself in "a bit of a mess" today. He attended the Calgary Exhibition and Stampede last week and started for Sheridan, Wyoming on Sunday but he only got as far as the border. United States immigration officers refused him entry, saying his bond papprs were not In order. Forced to return to Calgary, today he appealed to the United States consulate here and is hopeful of securing his clearance papers by Tuesday. Peg Wheat Next Week Minimum Price to Be Set Just Before New Crop Year Starts OTTAWA, July 19.-�P>-Final decision on the minimum price for the new crop of wheat on the prairies probably will not be fixed until next week, it was learned here last night. The new crop year starts Aug. 1 and the government, it is expected, will wait until a few days before that time to announce its decision. During the present year the minimum was 87Vi cents No. 1 northern, basis head of the lakes, but there was a provision no wheat could oe bought by the wheat board until the market price fell below 90 cents. As it never fell that low the board this crop year bought no wheat except for seed purposes. For the new crop, however, the 90-cent restriction has been removed and the board will buy any wheat offered paying the minimum price and giving the producer participating certificates entitling him to share in the profits should the board be able to average higher than the minimum price In its selling. The minimum price will be recommended by the wheat board in Winnipeg, the recommendation having to have the endorsation of the Dominion government. The reason given for delaying announcement of the minimum price is so the board will be in a better position to judge the size of the new crop and what the wheat market is likely to do.

(CP)-Joe Langlois, McFarlana Lake farmer, could hardly believe his eyes when he started checking over a litter of pigs just born on his farm. One had one head but two bodies with four front legs, four back legs, four ears and two tails. A veterinary said a two-body pig with one head was much more unusual than a two-headed-pig with one body.

Corrigan To Ship Plane Back To U.S. Funds No Worry to "Non-Stop" Although He Landed Broke OFFERS OF CONTRACTS ARE TURNED DOWN DUBLIN, July 19 - (/P) - Douglas G. Corrigan was $2,000 to the good today on that little "mistake" in direction which tock his 900 plane across the Atlantic. Dismissing his "wrong way" flight as "not much," the 31-ycar-old Californian was up at 10 a.m. after a long night's sleep. There won't be any more "errors" of compasses going wrong again, Corrigan intimated, because he's going to take his "unairworthy" plane home by steamer. Funds No Worry Funds were no worry, although he was broke on landing yesterday. "The $2,000 I got for my broadcast to America last night will keep me in pocket money while I'm here," he said. "But as soon as I can get steamship passage fixed up I am going home. I am trying to get a boat where my plane won't have to be dismantled." He acknowledged that "folks here still are tremendously excited about my trip, but after all it wasn't much." They've been very kind to me in not having me summoned for landing without an air-worthiness certificate." Sleeps Late The 31year-old Californian who Franco-G.B. Friendship Strengthened BeetWebworms Strip Gardens, Calgary Area CALGARY, July 19.- An army of thousands Is on the march, the fast travelling beet webworm.?, leaving a trail of wilting stalks, denuded of foliage, in its path. Menace of vegetable and flower gardens, the webworm hordes were reported on the outskirts of Calgary, to the northeast and to the west, swarming over many fine gardens.

CORRIGAN TO (Contijiuea on Page Three.). British Ship Hit By Bomi Crew and Two Non-intervention Observers Escape Injury VALENCIA, July 19.-(CP)-A 1000-pound bomb hit the British merchantman Stanland in Valencia harbor today, setting her afire, but her crew and two non-intervention observers escaped injury. The fire, confined to the vessel's decks, was soon extinguished. It was the first bombing of a British ship in nearly a month, a lull in such attacks in Spanish waters having followed vigorous British protests to General Franco, leader of insurgent Spain. The observers aboard the vessel were an Italian and a Netherlander. Five planes made the raid, and eight Spanish workers were killed as their heavy bombs plunged into the dock area. The Stanland is not. listed in Lloyd's register of shipping, but che is one of a number of ships whose names were changed when they entered the Spanish trade. She is owned by the Stanhope Shipping Company of London, all of whose vessels have names beginning with "Stan." Among the "Stans" trading with the Spanish government which have been bombed by insurgent airplanes have been the Stanbrook, Stancroft, Stanbridge, Stanwell, Stanray and Stanwold.
