Bloiv Gabriel, blow Duane Glimsdafe, 13-year-old son of Mr. and Mrs. Don Glimsdale of Clareshoim, puts a lot of effort into the sweet notes he produces as a member of the Claresholm Community Band.

Central Africa visited by Iron Springs couple IRON SPRINGS (HNS) Many farms in central Africa produce only enough crop for their own use, Mr. and Mrs. Cor Van Raay said here in their return home from a trip to Europe and Africa. They visited Mrs. Van Raay's relatives in Holland and Bel- gium and also with friends in Denmark. Their travels took them to central Africa where they j visited with Mr. Van Raay's brother-in-law and sister, Dr. John Pinnemans and Mrs. Pin- nemans, at Malawi. In central Africa the summer temperatures hovered in the 80s during their two-week stay. A drought was being experi-. enced and Mr. and Mrs. Van Raay noted the contrasts in farming procedures as compar- ed with our agricultural meth- ods. Many farms produce only enough crop for their own use, although they did see somei large tea plantations, tobacco fields, and many fields of corn. Corn is one of the staple foods of the people of that country, cornmeal being an es- sential element of their daily diet. The area around Malawi is inhabited by Negro people and the settlement in which the Pinnemans family -lives has only 15 other white people. They are serving as mission- aries. Mrs. Van Raay also not- ed contrasts in styles in wom- en's clothing. Mini-skirts and slacks are not allowed as the law decrees that women's dresses or skirts must be at least two inches below their knees. En route home they visited relatives in Holland. SITE CHOSEN The site of Addis Ababa, the capital of Ethiopia, was chosen in 1886 by Emperor Menelek II. Picture Butte aims to hold mill rate By AUDREY MARTIN Herald News Service PICTURE BUTTE "We are hopeful of keeping the mill- rate for the 1973 budget at the same 78 mills level it has re- mained for the past four stated Mayor Alex Chronik. He was speaking to 40 people a record attendance, at the annual meeting of the Picture Butte ratepayers. With the 1972 assessment fi- gure at and a cen- sus of people, an upward trend is apparent. This was confirmed by a cash surplus of and assets valued at This was pointed out by the auditor's representative, Rob- ert Oishaski of Young, Parkyn and McNab. In reviewing the financial picture, Mr. Oishaski answered many questions aris- ing from the prepared state- ment. Chairman Clarence Leek in- Loggers busy in March CRANBROOK (Special) B.C. Forest Service, Nelson Forest District sawlog scale, covering both East and West Kootenay, roared to a peak in March as logs were stockpiled for spring woods closure which lasts in some areas into June. Weight restrictions for area road hauling through both Koo- tenays have been imposed dur- i n g grotmdthaw effectively ending log supply, and when these are lifted in a month or so spring runoff in high logging areas prevents use of heavy logging equipment. Total for March is reported at cubic feet compar- ed with cubic feet for March 1972. It brings to cubic feet the scale for the Kootenays the first quarter of 1973, against in that period of 1972. Heft of the scale, nearly 15 million feet, is in spruce, more than double the previous March, probably because of the lighter high altitude snow cover the past winter. Lodgepole pine moved up to second place at 5.5 million, and cedar and bal- sam were close behind at more than four million. Uneasiness over the province's interpretation of multiple use of crown forests is sensed in the industry, with temporary suspension of harvest in some timber sales during depart- ments "study" toward general forest use policy among the various users, including woods industry, livestock growers, game conservationists and wil- derness recreationists. freduced each councillor and board representatives in turn.

DEBENTURE Secretary Earl Mcllroy an- nounced that final payment will be made this year on a water and sewage debenture which has added 20 cents per foot to frontage taxes. Public works committee chairman Jim Kirika explained many projects carried out last year. He advised that an- ticipated work includes installa- tion of a new hydrant near the hospital and improvements to existing recreational sites. The anticipated cost of the tunnel surrounding the swim- ming pool will be about 000; necessitated by pipe break- age. Savings have been realized in the low cost of the street sweep- er tiurchased. The lowest bid on the new half-ton truck came from Inte- national Harvester, Lethbridge. In giving the recreation com- mittee report, Mrs. Mary Shaw outlined the breakdown of costs for the third section of the skating rink and announc- ed that a delegation interested in the erection of an arena to enclose existing facilities had met with council. Approval was given for them to approach the county and province concerning grants towards this estimated project. Reporting for (he hospital board, Syd Johson outlined the financial position following sal- ary raises. A total of pa- tient days were taken care oi by the staff. Fire Chief Bill Vogt reported 36 rural and two town fire calls last year, four of which result- ed from careless smoking, Total losses were estimated at even though little damage was caused in seven of these fires.

Monday, April 2, 1973 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD 3 Classy hoop star receives offers Jim Toone, 6-foot, 9-inch Claresholm Cobras basketball player lowers the ball at the Willow Creek Consolidated High School gym. Toone is receiving scholarship offers from schools in Idaho and Washington. He is the son of Afton (Esazer) Toone, centre fc-r the Cardsfon Shooting Stars of yesteryear. Hoop players ride donkeys TABER (HNS) The Taber school division board has ap- proved a reauest from, the Vauxhall High "School Students' Union to sponsor donkey bas- ketball in the school gymnas- ium. Trustees received assurance the animals' hoofs will be suffi- ciently protected that the floor vrill not be marred. Favorable reports from In- vermere and Creston, British Columbia, and information that the donkeys are rubber-shod and will be ridden by local partici- pants, smoothed the way for trustees' approval. The board's approval was on a '-'one-time-only" basis. A new policy on a trial basis has been adopted by the trus- tees by which sectarian groups may obtain use of gymnasiums in the public schools for "pure- ly sectarian" recreational pur- poses. Conditions are that the events I do cot conflict with1 previously scheduled school activities, that formal application is made through the principal of the concerned schcal, and that the school board gives its formal approval. Previously the policy w a s against sectarian use of school facilities, which was later eased to provide for paid use of the schools. The new policy places religious groups on the same basis as other community or- ganizations. Tri-weekly meetings of the board assures fairly prompt ap- proval of requests, none of which have been denied during the past several months. The use of school facilities on Sunday was again debated, when the trustees considered a request from Rev. James J. Lynn of Vauxhall to sponsor interdenominational activities in the school gymnasium Sun- day evenings. CARDSTON (HNS) culture Minister Dr. Hugh Hcrner, speaking to a recent meeting of Unifarm attended by 9Q people here said "the dairy industry is the second largest processing industry in Alberta, after the meat pack- ing industry.

"We gave SS.OOO in loans for which we forgave the interest for paople under 40. We will increase the amount grain. We have some serious of loans and will be paying the doubts that the wheat board, interest on some of the loans being built on one regulation after another, is really structur- ed to get more processing in Alberta.
