Meanwhile, a spokesman for the provincial lands and forests department said fire hazard was high to extreme along the entire length of the foothills, from Grande Prairie south to Waterton Lakes.

Church bomb target EDMONTON (CP) A tire bomb was thrown at the Central Pentecostal Taber- nacle here Sunday night but it rolled off the building's pyramid shaped roof and there was no damage. City police said no one was injured with a gas filled bot- tle topped with a flaming rag exploded on a sidewalk next to the downtown church. Rev. George Smith, minister of the church, said in an interview that the firebombing could be the work of "some religious nuts who will come around our church simply because we're the largest church in the city, maybe in the province School blaze probed EDMONTON (CP) Police believe juveniles are responsible for setting a fire which caused an estimated damage to a northwest Edmonton school Sunday night. Although the incident is still being investigated police say they believe youngsters set the blaze as small footprints were found on the ground by the school. Cavalcade winds down ROCKY MOUNTAIN HOUSE (CP) The 17th an- nual David Thompson Cavalcade and Indian Days wound down Monday as between and people finished up the weekend ac- tivities in west central Alber- ta. The highway, running between here and Banff, is scheduled for completion next spring but officials of the David Thompson cavalcade committee from Rocky Moun- tain House, who organized the festival to encourage the province to finish the tourist road, say it is unlikely to die because too many have come to enjoy the annual event.

Grizzly devours human ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) An amateur photographer was killed and eaten by a grizzly bear in the Izembek National Wildlife Refuge outside Cold Bay on the Alaska Peninsula, authorities said Monday. The bear, which was shot by a helicopter search party, is being examined by the fish and wildlife service in Anchorage to test for rabies and try and determine what prompted the animal to attack and devour Jay B. L. Reeves Jr., 38. The death was the first in Alaska from a bear attack this year and several sources said they knew of no case in the state in which a bear devoured a human after killing it. Drought strikes again CARACAS (Reuter) Drought in the central Venezuelan state of Guarico has killed 20.000 cattle, stopped irrigation of acres of rice and threatens the survival of 100.000 families, local authorities said Monday. At least two persons have died of hunger and thirst in the region so far, they said. Guar- ico state is Venezuela's main rice-growing region. The drought, hitting the state for the fourth successive year, has brought a sudden drop in the main water reser- voir to below the critical level. The planned rice crop of tons, which cost million to sow. would be lost if water for irrigation was not provided, officials said. Water rationing has been imposed in some mam towns, and the shortage already is beginning to affect industry and commerce. One agriculture ministry expert who visited the region said: "There is not enough water even to make coffee."
