Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - April 30, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Monday, April 30, 1973 THI LETHBRIDGl HERALD 3 Macleod RCMP museum claims world-wide fame FORT MACLEOD (Special A group of far sighted Fnrt Macleod citizens formed the Fort Macleod Historical Asso- ciation in 1957. Their object was to build a museum to honor the RCMP, the pioneers and the native people. Now, 1973, the ICOth anniver- Government invests in credit union CASTLEGAR, B.C. (CP) The British Columbia govern- ment has begun investing some of its money in credit unions for the first time, Premier Dave Barrett says. Mr. Barrett mentioned the Investments while stopping at a credit union here and ela- borated later for newsmen. The premier said the govern- ment last month invested be- tween and million with credit unions so they can ex- pand their money lending capabilities. The money came from the government's surplus cash reserve, which totals close to million. Mr. Barrett, on a tour of the province, said some of the money the government has in- vested with credit unions will be used to finance a project in Vancouver's east end. He did not elaborate. He said the investing was a change in policy" from the course followed by the previous Social Credit governm e n t, which did not have any deal- ings with credit unions, restrict- ing its business to the bank of B.C. and other federally-chart- j ered banks. sary of the founding of the North West Mounted Polios, the museum, a replica of the first fort in the west, has assets of over a quarter of a million dol- lars. The directors met recently for their annual meeting and were told that over guests toured the Museum in six months during 1972. It has won world-wide fame. PROGRESSIVE The reoort. given by retiring officer, Mrs. Muriel Ragan, indicated a colorful and progressive year. Each season since its inception, attendance has increased with the excep- tion if ?J70 when road construc- tion interfered. Events taking place in the museum last summer included church services and citizen's day. Both tourists and local peopls of all faiths attended tlie early morning church conduct- ed by the Rev. Ron Hunt. The inauguraul inspection of the newly-formed patrol drew people from across Southern Alberta. Inspecting officer was Lt. Col. Reed Ainscough of The patrol, eight youths I dressed in the NWMP uniform I of 1878, rode matched horses each morning and acted as guides in the compound. They were a great tourist attraction. The patrol will be used again during the 1973 season. The historical association hosted visitors at a reception before the Garrison Ball. The Macleod Cade' Corps held their annual inspection within the walls of the fort. FILMS Eastman Kodak spent two days filming the Museum and CBC tool; in'erior shot.; that were seen on a recent Tele- scope program, depicting the trek west in 1874. The association assisted the Centennial Socktv and the Town of Fort Maclsod with the float. The mounted patrol ac- companied the float to district paiades.

During the past season nit conditioning had been installer i in the RCMP Mu.'.eum, a fence i WPS constructed around the east lawn and the patro was initiated. Further improvements in- clude a new entrance. The pre- sent system of registering in the Kamouse House presents r traffic hazard. The entrance of- fice will be just inside the gate and the guests will be able t: tour the facilities at their lei- sure. New washrooms will be in- stalled and later in the season a new vehicle shed is contem- plated. This move will free the north wall of the compound for extended office and storage space. SCHOLARSHIP The Association has been giving a S200 scholarship to native student each year. The money will now bi given to the schools for extended lib- rary facilities. Membership is per year The card entitles the bearer to enter the Museum at no cost and gives them a vote at the annual mee'ing. Last year the memberships were slightly over 100. Officials feel the town resi- dents are interested in the mu- seum and are glad to identify with it, but give no reason for law memberships.
