Accept- UCB of papers alter expiration to oar authority to tie WAY OPEN FOR THE FAIR i The resignation of the'Agrieultilral Society leases the road open for those Interested to'get together for holding fair In Lethbrldge this xear. The technical' difficulty in lAgrlcul-' tural. Society hbldtag control and pos- ition of the exhibition buildings has now been removed In the resigna- tion of the majority directors. From the opinion of the dl- .rectors, as published, ft is clear that, from what appeared to them reason- able, it was not practical to hold a lair In the city this year and, accord- ingly, the directors of the Agricultural Society have done the only thing possible In the cir- cumstances by tendering re- with the desire that ihey ehonld not stand In the way of a fair materializing. This was a proper viewpoint to take.. It now remains for all those Inter- ested in haying a lair In Lethbrldge to get together and form an organi- zation "or getting the same going. The, responsibility so to speak been passed oa to them. It is up to them to take hold of It In an energetic manner and push matters in regard to the fair in thatithere li not a very deal of-time ahead. v A_ campaign among fanners and fanners' lyiTos, to Interest them in the fair, would, be an -adTlsable policy. Once this interest aroused there will be the assurance that a fair on agricultural lines, no 'pretensions at aiming too high, can be made to be a succees. Further the'.entry .fees alone can be made to meet much of the expenses. There is the govern- ment grant also to bo borne in mind. -The matter ot a fair for Ltsthbrldge should be sufficiently important for an interest'in the be taken by the ,city council. This they can ehow'by taking an Initial' step 'li'call-' ing a meeting for the purposes of 'dis- cussing arrangements for holding the -fair.
