Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - April 20, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta SATURDAY, APRIL 20, 1946 Long Layover at Nelson Ends; i CRANBROOK GETS XT m- A vi T LOW INTEREST RATE New Timetable on Crow Line FISCHER CREEK: A special meeting under sponsor-, ship of the Pincher Creek Board of Trade was held here on. Wednesday afternoon when merchants met representatives of the CPJl, Mr. L. Officer and Mr. T. KiEgs- wav, ia regards to the possible change in time of trains through Kacher. The proposals were heard from Mr. Officer and taese consisted in tyro changes. The oreseat train from the east would be 25 minutes later than is is now and would arrive here at am. The eastbound train would not lay over at Kelson as it does now and arrive at Pincher at in ihe morning instead of its present time of p-ffls- This would be a great- advantage to merchants of Pincher Creek, especially those handling fruit and fish. Another advantage would be the shorter trip to Calgary- Instead of nearly a seven hour trip the train leaving here at a_m. would arrive in Calgary at ajaa. and if a businessman wished to leave Cal- gary the same day he would catch a reaim train by pjn. In tak- ing an opinion the meeting most merchants voiced a favorable opin- ion of the proposed changes in times of these trains. Want Day Time Ixxal BLAIRMORS. (HNS) C.P-R. officials. Mr. Lowe of the operat- ing department. Mr. Officer, of the passenger department, and Mr. Kingjhead. of the express depart- ment, were in the Pass this week, obtaining an expression of opinion on a proposed new time table for trains No. 11 and 12 running through the CroWs Nest Pass. At. a meeting held in the Cosmo- politan Hotel in Biairmose last Wednesday, they explained the pro- posed new schedule to Mayor E. Williams. John LJoyd of the U.M.W. of A. "Wra. Johnston of Plunkett and Savage, J. Kubik of Kubik's Grocerv, S. G. Barman, barrister. M. G. Smith, manager of the Royal Bank of Canada, J. F. Smith of the Cosmopolitan Hotel. Morgan of the CroWs Nest Pass Motors and W. H. Chappell of the "West Cana- dian Collieries Ltd. The oroposed change would have the westbound train reach Blair- more at a.m_ instead of ajn, as at present- The eastbound train would reach Blairmore at a.m. instead of PJE. as ac present. Advantages of the proposed new- schedule would be to permit airmail from "Winnipeg to make connections at Lethbridge with the train for the Crow's Nest Pass. Passengers from the Crow's Nest district would be able to leave the Pass on the early morning train, stay all day in Lethbridge or Calgary, and arrive home on the same day, and if travelling further east, would be able to make excellent connections with. No. 2 train at Medicine eliminating the present long lay over there. It was also pointed out teat the new schedule would assist merchants of the Pass on their fruit and vegetable express ship- ments from, the west. Merchants of the tomx were in favor of the proposed new time table, as at the present time their fruit and vegetable shipments are 3 kept over night in the station and not delivered to their stores until late the following morning. Some opposition developed to the proposed change, particularly from CitANWtOOK. B-C.

Mr. and Mrs. Geo. Bough and Rov Heams were visitors at the meeting from Hoping and the- reoorted their local was quite in favor of strike action. SOFTBALL GAMES BUHDKTT.
