William George McFall said he might be able to go along with a delegation of private citizens from the Vulcan area when they meet with Premier Peter Lougheed in Edmonton next week. This follows a recent citizens' meeting at Carmangay where it was decided to ask the government to curtail more purchases by HuHerian brethren until the Alberid land use forum brings in its report.

Marg Dragland told the County of Forty Mile council Friday. She said they deserve something better. "Our rural cemeteries have reached the stage where you can't locate the said Coun. Dragiand. There was some argument on her position but it wasn't very convincing. Said Reeve Dan Vanden Berg: "Only some of the cemeteries belong to the county. Some belong to church groups." "I was said Coun. Dragland, "Fertile Plains is just a huge cemetery with just a few graves in it. It would be better if it was made smaller, brought down to a manageable size." She was advised by agricultural field man Vernon Arnold to mix and D to kill sage brush in the overgrown cemeteries. Coan. William George McFall noted that the cemetery at Etzikom had been reduced to one-third its former size and the burial ground at Faith was cut in half. "Is there anything from stopping us from making it asked Coun. Dragland. "Be careful not to fence anybody cautioned Coun. William Kenneth Babe In regard to the resting places overgrown with weeds, Coun. Russell Scratch advised Coun. Dragland to get the local people working on their own reclamation projects. Coun Scratch said he did a lot of this kind of work last summer. Problems encountered in locating unmarked graves are many. Secretary-Treasurer Roy Wallman said grave books must be located and are helpful when found. He said the county has some grave books but nothing for some areas and the people have all died or left. Pleaded Coun. Dragland: "What does the county think about it? Do you Coun. Frank Romeike said the county is supplying fence posts. H people were interested in beautifying their cemeteries, the county would supply the posts Coun. Dragland said one citizen had asked: "Why don't they hire somebody to look after She said the present policy is not good enough because "you can just go.around and see what the results are." Hearing called on drug charge The preliminary hearing of a Lethbridge man charged with possession of marijuana for the purposes of trafficking was set in provincial court Friday for May 24. Blair Reid Orr, 29, 415 13th St. S., elected to be tried in district court. He will also plead then on a charge of possessing a prohibited weapon. Orr was arrested April 3 after police raided a city residence and seized a quan- tity of marijuana and a switchblade. A Lethbridge man appearing in provincial court Friday on a national parks charge was practically defended by Provincial Judge L W. Hudson. Hubert P. Anctil was charged with driving his four wheel drive vehicle in Waterton Lakes National Park March 10 "in a place other than on a highway." Anctil and another motorist had driven off the Pass Creek road to get around a snowdrift when discovered by a park warden. Anctil tried to explain the situation, but provincial Judge Hudson wouldn't let him. "I know what he said. "You did what anyone else would do if they came to a snowdrift, and you drove onto sacred land a national parks ditch. Next thing you know someone will get stuck and they'll charge them with throwing gravel." The judge fined Anctil one dollar.

Coun, Lyle Nattrass said, "They must be getting more than their share They must be getting to more than they would get otherwise." Coun. Babe noted that "when it is called a grant and appears in the newspaper it looks like we are giving them something over and above what everybody else is getting."
